GapFiller: no CheckPoint this week must mean no video game news this week lrrBEEJ
GapFiller: which therefore means ChillPoint this week is just PH Balance finishing off Megs Monster
Juliamon: yep, definitely no news on Mario Day
DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIG
GapFiller: anyone seen that last trailer then?
GapFiller: apparently it was wild
Juliamon: not I, I've been broadly avoiding the trailers
LurkerSpine: the latest Mario trailer? I disagree about it being wild
Juliamon: they did announce a Lush collab though
Juliamon: if there's no Bath Bob-Omb it's worthless

RockPusher prepares to prepare

beowuuf: perfectly timed trip through season 8 of crapshots
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Heather Beej and Paul and chat about the week's gaming news. 📷 ||
Juliamon: yeah, the movie could be amazing but they'd have to pay me to sit in a theater
laundreydhull: March 10th, March 10th March Tenth!!!
GapFiller: tangetially was reading something today abt how lotta cinea chains are now in trouble after spending the last decade firing all the projectionists in favour of digital tech
GapFiller: *cinema

GapFiller: Beej? lazy!? never!
iris_of_ether: escher3THUMBSUP
RockPusher: Gotta have some slack in the system
beowuuf: give through patron so the crew can occasionally run from the ever demanding content gods
GapFiller: werent L5 one of those companies who went all in on NFT's or was that someone else
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Ah, magic bullet turns out to be not only mundane, but also made out of balsa wood. Tale as old as time, thanks for the context.
richard_ermen: Clearly this is secretly a death game and they're gonna be imprisoned in the VR world.
GapFiller: Raiz0k totally stealing 'made of balsa wood' for the zinger file now, thanks ;)
Raiz0k: You're very welcome :) .
Invitare: ah Other M
TheMerricat: Well that's not realistic. Least not in America
CAKHost: But using a bow and arrow is fine?!
SquidVorb: LUL
Raiz0k: In fairness to Beej, the furry scale exists for a reason.
SquidVorb: I
Raiz0k: Fantasy Life Imaginary Number
LordZarano: Did it start in the DSi?
NovaTiempo: @Raiz0k agreed
KeytarCat: Mining and Crafting?! Call James!
iris_of_ether: The imaginary number i is used in many circle equations and circles are associated with pi, which is basically 3, so
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k :). Originally wanted to write "sqrt(-1)", but that'd be probably too hermetic.
iris_of_ether: (/s of course)
Raiz0k: @iris_of_ether : well, you joke, but IIRC at least in one US State it *was* 3 for a time (or at least proposed to be) in the XIXth century, wasn't it?
KeytarCat: AI, not SALAMI
beowuuf: classic
richard_ermen: lol
NovaTiempo: @iris_of_ether better than todays xkcd :p
iris_of_ether: @raiz0k I don't remember but it wouldn't shock me, haha
Driosenth: How dull and predictable do you have to be to have an entire town of automata that could predict your call and response?
iris_of_ether: @novatiempo oh no, BRB a sec to look
TheMerricat: "Let's call them Systematic Approaches to Learning Algorithms and Machine Inferences (SALAMI). Artificial Intelligence is a name born in 1956."
LarkSachrosis: I could be in there
TheAinMAP: FootBall
iris_of_ether: @novatiempo I have looked. That is cursed:D
Laserbeaks_Fury: "It's time to KICK IT!" -not actual catch phrase
Laserbeaks_Fury: Trainvan
CururuGuasu: Van for goalie
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Well, still beats MYCIN, or ELIZA, for naming in that subject realm.
Driosenth: Layton, post a photo with a current newspaper or magazine
RockPusher: Games with ghosts installed
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Hey MYCIN, generate Despacito"
laundreydhull: O_o
beowuuf: am i looking for sparky or am i sparky?
RockPusher: Phasmophungus?
NovaTiempo: @RockPusher *shudders*
nevermore913: That's a game sure
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's a Cabin in the Woods situation
RockPusher: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
jessicaengle: A Creepy Doll?
TheMerricat: Ben will love this game
CururuGuasu: Is one just a family of rats?
CururuGuasu: Less paranormal and more just rodents
Angreed66: don't pollute the ocean heather
beowuuf: why does the largest creepy doll not simply consume the souls of the smaller ones?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh NM, it's Betrayal
CururuGuasu: Oh hai marked
Laserbeaks_Fury: So it's always Ben
jessicaengle: Here's your nametag, Mark
nevermore913: This sounds like a nope from me
Raiz0k: That's quite a clever twist actually.
CaptainSpam: Ah, so a horror version of Fakin' It, from one of the Jackbox packs.
CururuGuasu: Is this Sparky from the Arena tutorial?
LarkSachrosis: heck
GapFiller: lrrSPOOP NOEP
CaptainSpam: MR BLOBBY?!?
jessicaengle: lrrSPOOPY
accountmadeforants: Bartleby and Mr. Blobby had a child
GapFiller: CaptainSpam omg it IS!
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah I was gonna say Mr Blobby vibes
virre_: Mr Blobbys brother?
laundreydhull: this is that- FNAF Nightmare Fuel
nevermore913: Ok interesting premise that I never want to play
Raiz0k: Or the lights apparently.
LurkerSpine: oh so it's like Phasmophobia?
Fanklok: I look forward to Crosing the Nopes
BusTed: LUL
Fanklok: Serge scares himself far more than the game ever does
GapFiller: yeh lookin fwd to watching Serge and Ben jumping into each others arms at the sight of Sparky at least
accountmadeforants: The RE4 demo is excellent.
GapFiller: right the remake was in the news this week wasnt it
Juliamon: RE4 was less scary than the first 3 originally
Juliamon: because it was more actiony
laundreydhull: aw, yes lrrADAM solo'd this one for a portion of the Let's NOPE.
Laserbeaks_Fury: which one is 4
Juliamon: 4 is not-Spain
Invitare: 7.8/10 Too much rain
GapFiller: Laserbeaks_Fury the 4th one Kappa
accountmadeforants: @Juliamon And because the main character will frequently crack jokes.
Laserbeaks_Fury: ahh, the Silent Hill effect
CururuGuasu: RE4: Secret Heavy Rain remake
laundreydhull: Only Adam and that timing's chat, has Met: Spanish Accent: "Ramon Salazar"!
Juliamon: Meester Kennedy
Laserbeaks_Fury: I have seen rain so thick you couldnt see far enough to react while driving
DeM0nFiRe: Most games make the rain too light IMO it would be nice if more games had heavy rain
Fanklok: OMG they gave AShley pants
jedi_master_zll: That rain just looks bad.
ghyllnox: This seems fine?
Juliamon: This looks like it would be miserable with Twitch compression
LordZarano: In Minecraft the rain totally ruins twitch compression
sephsays: I kinda want one of those games where the protagonist wears glasses, so you either have to wipe your glasses off to see regularly, or just have shitty vision.
AtomicAlchemical: Right before it dove off a cliff again with RE5
CAKHost: I didn't even think the original RE4 had rain?
HedWund: I always thought it was funny since re:4 came after RE:CV but wasn't 5
CururuGuasu: He’s gonna catch a cold…
They_Are_Alyx: EGG
laundreydhull: lrrBEN isn't formally familiar with Mister Salazar's entrance, I'm guessing...
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah idk if the problem there is too much rain, it just doesn't look much like rain lol
MagicalAttackGecko: yeah this rain is a little aggressive
AshBurnem: chimken eg
Juliamon: RE4 has "chicken eggs" that turn into snakes
lirazel64: Watch & Play quality rain.
ghyllnox: Hi!
cisco236: on pc you can turn down the quality of the rain, dunno if thats makes it better
wildpeaks: a shipment of eggs
iris_of_ether: Ooh, shipment
They_Are_Alyx: Package! FBtouchdown
Mai_Andra: of eggs?
CururuGuasu: Mail Time (TM)
eric_christian_berg: Cockatrices?
roastbeefsandwitch: I enjoy Mail Time, but please don't send eggs into LRR. Unless they're hard-boiled.
Bugberry: it's a reference to the Basilisk
Fanklok: Eggs are also a healing item
Juliamon: You'd think so, but it explicitly labels them chicken eggs
virre_: No Snake and Chickens are there own thing
constablecrab: That’s how you get a cockatiel
CAKHost: Or plastic egges
LordZarano: Which came first, the chicken egg or the snake?
constablecrab: Cockatrice dammit autocorrect
CAKHost: *eggs
iris_of_ether: I *did* mail something in but I doubt it made that good of time getting there, haha
ghyllnox: @constablecrab The first was funnier :D
Raiz0k: @constablecrab A cockatiel that turns people into stone would be amazing.
They_Are_Alyx: RE4 is very goofy
NovaTiempo: Beej expertly navigating the mike stand :p
wildpeaks: that's one way to say it :D
Raiz0k: @LordZarano That's probably a question for Quetzalcoatl.
GapFiller: 'curated' is a good euphemism
TheMerricat: This is deja vue of early steam....
jedi_master_zll: So more stuff for garbage day?
virre_: Sounds like there might be quite a bit of garbage
Raiz0k: Sounds like a gold mine for Watch+Play.
DeM0nFiRe: Is the 12% still only if you use Unreal Engine or did they open that up to all games?
Fanklok: This can only improve the quality of games on Steam
Tiber727: Previously, Epic didn't want your games on there if it wasn't Epic exclusive, unless you are AAA.
TheMerricat: So everyone's saying that this is going to be new source of garbage I'm just wondering how much of the garbage from steam is just going to get republished in epic
Mai_Andra: Epic wants to get in on that "Watch+Play" sponsorship
KeytarCat: I had a friend in uni who got described as having "refined taste. Bad, but precisely refined"
ghyllnox: That's fine with me
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Gonna' play it safe: all of it.
LordZarano: Itch io presumably still has the best cut?
ghyllnox: I wish that was just a thing
Laserbeaks_Fury: Cross play is more of an issue with Sony and Microsoft not wanting to play together than developers not wanting it
rubikdarkwill: Shot at Sony
rubikdarkwill: Or not then
Raiz0k: @KeytarCat That's an excellent alternative definition of "snob".
Tiber727: @Laserbeaks_Fury Sony and Microsoft love cross play! When the other console is more successful.
ghyllnox: That just means W&P content
wildpeaks: Gamepass is probably a big competitors to them now, because even if they try to be cheaper than Steam per game, gamepass is way cheaper
Driosenth: LRR has a show dedicated to bad games
accountmadeforants: That's basically what Apple does for the App Store, no? Pay us a hundred bucks and don't do anything too egregiously fucky, also we decide what's fucky.
LurkerSpine: years to get a shopping cart
NovaTiempo: how does every chillipoint end up having a Beej's onle shopping tale :p
NovaTiempo: *online
GapFiller: NovaTiempo branding
RockPusher gives the side-eye to his Steam account
LurkerSpine: Epic also had coupons with buy minimums
GapFiller: its in his contract
accountmadeforants: But at the same time, it's "buy this... buy this... fuck it, I'm not gonna buy all this"
Bugberry: may be dumb but also fun.
TheMerricat: It's a library you have to link to
Raiz0k: Heh, so Below Zero is as buggy as OG Subnautica in Early Access.
sephsays: Hey Beej you should try playing it on platform shoes
Snowcookies: yeah they should probably look at that
wildpeaks: luckily never crashed, but it does make my pc very warm
Raiz0k: (but yeah, it's stable on PC)
AshBurnem: Beej, have you tried remembering you are an awesome human being?
drcthulu: caveat *switch ports*
wildpeaks: (which is ironic given the theme of the game)
LurkerSpine: oh apparently that problem has been around for a WHILE
TheMerricat: Beej, have you tried switching your couch out for a lazy chair?
GapFiller: it is 2023 and people are STILL saying 'git a better console fnar'
RockPusher: Beej on a tangent‽ That doesn't sound likely!
GapFiller: thats awesome
Tiber727: If consoles are good for something, it's that console makers generally refuse to allow you to sell your game if it's too buggy.
TheMerricat: The modder gremilin in me jumps out to tell Beej there is an autosave mod for Subnautica. But it's not built in.
Astrovore: Which game are we talking about?
Raiz0k: Autosave is not conducive to thalassophobia inducin'.
pn55: Yea, I remeber Alex getting annoyed by that recently too. To the point that he set a 15 minute timer to remind himself to save.
wildpeaks: Subnautica below zero
Astrovore: ohh, Subnautica
ghyllnox: I was pretty sure it didnt
iris_of_ether: Alex had to set a timer to remember to save. I'm not sure they do
LordZarano: Alex set a 15 minute timer to remind him to save for his playthrough. Cause he lost a ton of work in the first couple of sessions
RockPusher: Growing up without autosave means I manually save very aggressively
GapFiller: lrrAWW
ThorSokar: yea, you can actually set how often the PC version auto-saves in the settings
Tiber727: The weirdest thing is where I sometimes have a compulsion to save multiple times in a row.
LurkerSpine: I do have to give my birthday for a bunch of violent games on Steam
Fanklok: @Tiber727 Just in case
ghyllnox: Steam has you enter your birthday for some games in the US
RockPusher: Football?
NovaTiempo: Um
LurkerSpine: I mean, he's been in?
RockPusher: aeiou aeiou
LurkerSpine: at least his voice?
ThorSokar: he was a VERY famous sports announcer later in life
TheMerricat: "A 21st-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1958 (the 244th selection overall), Madden was with the NFL club for one season before a knee injury halted his professional career. He never played in a regular season game with the Eagles."
RockPusher: John Maddens superhero origin story :D
matthaus_c: ghosts can play all the football they want
saucemaster5000: was John Madden actually a good coach? I only knew him as the announcer
MajorFrostbyte: There is no rule that says dogs, ghosts, and dog ghosts can't play football.
wildpeaks: these are definitely words that probably mean something to sportball fans
TheMerricat: @saucemaster5000 "Never having a losing season, Madden holds the highest winning percentage among NFL head coaches who coached at least 100 games. Austin, Minnesota, U.S."
GapFiller: Lethal Joke Character cleaerly
saucemaster5000: huh
Tiber727: @matthaus_c They have insane vertical but their ability to catch the ball or block leaves a lot to be desired
LurkerSpine: 99 is the highest possible rating, but the overall isn't reflective of all the other ratings. And there ARE a bunch of dead players in Madden
iconicshadow89: they have been
Fanklok: Put Kobe in MAdden
matthaus_c: put Waluigi in Madden
CururuGuasu: Put me in, coach!
TheMerricat: So John Madden NFL is now Fortnite?
RockPusher: !mashup
GapFiller: make Madden Fork Knife
wildpeaks: "push smash in football you cowards"
tergonis: Waluigi or bust
RockPusher: !crossover
LRRbot: This should be a Jackbox game. Don't ask me how.
roastbeefsandwitch: The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny! Add Mr. Rogers!
constablecrab: So does this make Madden technically an isekai?
wildpeaks: blitz, blitz ?
rubikdarkwill: Tennis
matthaus_c: Yoshi Up Super Cup
LordManiMani: Oh my god
Tiber727: Now I'm imagining SaltyBet combined with fantasy football.
EMNetwork: The fear makes him swim faster
Astrovore: I'd love it if you had to do all the events if you wanted to participate in the olympics

matthaus_c: uh
Ivalenz_: kivaSip
Juliamon: I don't like that
wildpeaks: hmm
RockPusher: So the walking your cute dog dating technique
TemporallyAwry: Yup, and just like that I'm right out. I don't want my phone talking to other people's phones unless I call them.
CururuGuasu: No guns or swords ;)
Bugberry: didn't see any combat
viowof: I don't think they locked down a core audience
matthaus_c: marketing thought processes are fucking weird
Nydestroyer: oh no
Nydestroyer: ntfs
LordZarano: Pac-Man was also intended for women
viowof: seems very scattershot, and then once they get data in, then they'll narrow the advertising?
ghizmou: is this a nft game?
Juliamon: "We're not using the NFT word but it's definitely NFT"
fiinnnaaaaannnnnnnn: flightrising, the app
ArcOfTheConclave: please no nfts
gualdhar: this is on a blockchain isn't it
CAKHost: Oh is this the NFT thing that people mention?
LordManiMani: Hooray
Nydestroyer: but what if your nfts could bang?
viowof: what was that weird genetics game, Spore?
Mai_Andra: more dots more dots more dots
TheMerricat: Chat, the stuff that NFT scammers were touting were things well before NFT's came into existance... it's OK.
niccus: generative art long predated nfts
hugni81: Nfts are the future hahaha
viowof: Spore Go
Invitare: it sounds like the NFT scam game, but an actual game, no NFTs and not promoted by a terrible Youtuber
Astrovore: like Creatures!
RockPusher: Punnet Squares!
Angreed66: When the appeal is for you to grift others then it becomes an nft game
LordManiMani: Punnett square?
TheMerricat: What Rockpusher said. Punnett Squares is what most high school genetics lessons taught
gualdhar: red parent + blue parent + purple child, and eventually every child is muddy brown
LordManiMani: Or it could be like Pokemon with hidden data that we'll never explain but your life will be driven by them Kappa
TheMerricat: @LordManiMani So you could have been asking Beej if that's what he was talking about or asking what one was - if it's the latter - basiclly the whole "blue eys and brown eyes come out X" type charts.
Invitare: I mean, it'd be pretty cool if they actually did use a model closer to actual DNA
niccus: there are probably too many traits to steer much even if it's just using basic genetics
LordManiMani: Former! Neat I got the spelling right
GapFiller: yuuup
TheMerricat: @Invitare it'd even be cooler if we knew it. :P
LordZarano: There's an official name for it. It's called "Lies to children"
virre_: Lies to Children, they go into it in one of the Science of Discworld books (might be the first one)
Micsig: a sufficient approximation
TheMerricat: Spherical Cows.
Angreed66: The thing is each successive model works better for more scales
LordZarano: It's a series of increasingly accurate approximations
wildpeaks: color also work very differently than what you're first taught about it
GapFiller: successive approximation even
Invitare: like Newtonian Gravity
CururuGuasu: It is an abstraction
niccus: or the existence of gravity
Decaped: none of our models are true.
LordZarano: But they don't tell you it's an approximation, they present it as if it is absolute face jlrrFacepalm
recursioning: My chemistry teacher said all models are wrong but some are helpful
LordZarano: *fact
TheMerricat: Do you get the full manual or do you have to run around collecting pages in real life?
BlueMechanic: You can also get a cuddly toy of the hero
LurkerSpine: better than LRG
erloas: I think a lot of my science teachers in school acknowledged that what they were teaching was a simplified version of reality
They_Are_Alyx: Shoutouts to Fangamer!
LordManiMani: Could have been Limited Run.....
RockPusher: Huggable Fox Plush
LordManiMani: Iam8bit
TheMerricat: @erloas like the problem itself, Beej and Heather approximated the problem. :P Most science classes I was in even in college admitted their models were inexact. The real problem is no one acutally listened to that part because it wasn't hammered home.
RockPusher: Oh… oh no… they have a Blue Badger Dancing Pin…
GapFiller: PogChamp
wildpeaks: nice
wildpeaks: the in-game manual is so cute
saucemaster5000: been playing tunic recently, the manual system is SO cool
LordManiMani: I get caught up in tunic anguishing over whether to puzzle out the language with what I have.
matthaus_c: kind of a development on the idea Amanita Design put forward in Machinarium and Samorost
bondeulv: thx for the heads up!
LordManiMani: Or just Play the Game
TheMerricat: I can help you out on that one @LordManiMani puzzling out the language is appearently super hard.
ArcOfTheConclave: you need to coplete the big puzzle to finish the manuel
LordManiMani: Tunic came too late to be on the Wii U. Finally! Something ideal for Wii U!
BusTed: mug stain
kusinohki: shameless plug - dan and carrie floyd of playframe did a youtube video about how they figured out translating the manual script
LordManiMani: @themerricat theres so much to transcribe... more than Fez but it pushes the same curiosity button
viowof: in-disk DRM at the beginning of the manual
aerohydra: i do
TheMerricat: Heather's House of Chosen Lies. :P
pn55: Yep, needs to be divisible by 4 for printing purposes.
Decaped: Yeah, Fez gave you a key to their language, heh.
wildpeaks: well now we're going to need the name of that anime :D
matthaus_c: when's the anime about Paul Otlet
LordManiMani: Polygon did a great video on Note Taking video games. High recommend
omdorastrix: Acendance of a Bookworm is NOT a how-to about Making Books
pn55: (page count that is)
kusinohki: yeah. board game rule books are printed in multiple of 4 pages just the way printing works...
niccus: two-one-punch man
viowof: kind of like those Etrian Odyssey games
NovaTiempo: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:13:54.
LordManiMani: @decaped I missed it . Puzzled it out by hand
TheMerricat: Genos is the sidekick of the main character, the cyborg.
h3rsh3yb4r: genos is a cyborg he's saitama's apprentice
Invitare: Beej is right
Bugberry: it gets great once he gets involved with the other heroes.
LordManiMani: Sassy lost child??
ArcOfTheConclave: sassy lost child
CururuGuasu: Who’s this sassy child?
BlueMechanic: the Mumen Rider costume for Soldier 76 is pretty good
Nydestroyer: she spontaneously changes ages
CururuGuasu: She’s just short, not a kid
Nydestroyer: does he get a bike? thats great
matthaus_c: Mumen Rider is the best fucking character
TheMerricat: Mumen Rider is explicitly... non-powered, if IIRC
GapFiller: misheard that as Moomin Rider and was v confused there for a moment
matthaus_c: he also makes you bawl your eyes out one time
TehAmelie: ooj
Decaped: these OW2 skins are really bad, btw, they're basically just paint jobs, not even textured
TehAmelie: oops. i mean i would like to see Moomion rider
Bugberry: He also intentionally stays at a low rank so he can help people on the ground.
omdorastrix: C class?
TheMerricat: "Mumen Rider's name appears to be a play on "kamen", in reference to the Kamen Rider franchise, and "mumenkyo", which means "unlicensed" and refers to the fact he doesn't have a license. He was nicknamed "Rider" due to his obsessively persistent attitude, and because he's unable to ride a motorcycle."
CururuGuasu: C tier
CururuGuasu: But top of the C tier
saucemaster5000: Question to chat -- would someone who hasn't watched anime in over a decade and only the "big" stuff (Evangelion, Akira etc.) enjoy one punch man?
viowof: talk about disrespect
beowuuf: @GapFiller yeah, getting piggy backs from hippo people, right?
GapFiller: saucemaster5000 yes
Nydestroyer: thats part of the joke
bytecaster: But bikes aren't free, but everybody can do Saitama's training regime, so Saitama should be free!
omdorastrix: Half of the S tier are because of Saitama?
LordManiMani: The physical price point for Tunic is only $15 more than digital. What a savings
Decaped: @saucemaster5000 first season is amazing and stands alone, perfect parody of superhero
TemporallyAwry: Didn't even know about the written part of the test, iirc
TheMerricat: @saucemaster5000 OPM is 100% parody of superhero tropes so you do miss out a small bit if you aren't genre savy, but it does stand extremely well on it's own.
viowof: Season 2 was... bad
CururuGuasu: The studio change was unfortunate
Decaped: yeah, season 2 they just didn't get the timing right on any of the jokes, and also didn't bother to make the fight scenes good
bytecaster: Right, they should have crossed over with Twopunchman, now that we have Overwatch 2
Nydestroyer: I mean I think saitama is a weirdly popular Halloween costume
CururuGuasu: Season 3 coming, though, I believe
Nydestroyer: not sure why
matthaus_c: Fortnite thrives off that problem
CururuGuasu: Capped Baldy
LordManiMani: Nothing in overwatch gameplay is canon. Why this??
viowof: it's relatively simple
soyman_slacks: but they wouldn't have gotten money for the skins two or three years ago
viowof: everyone is secretly friends in a cabal or something
matthaus_c: literally me fr fr
ContingentCat: I love the absurdity of that in fortnite, goku having a mechine gun is great
Lithobraker: I could see Saitama flunking the test on purpose because being any higher than C tier would mean he had to work Sundays, and the grocery store has its sale on Sunday
wildpeaks: ohhh that
LurkerSpine: I might actually get mine this year
omdorastrix: Crank it!
LordZarano: Love my playdate, I've been playing every day recently

DoodlestheGreat: They talked about those games on Podquisition this week. They both sound interesting.

LordZarano: They had to change CPU
beowuuf: the supply chain for components has been such hot garbage for the last few years :(
Driosenth: Beej, I just purchased the Unicomp Model M. The control board is a raspberry pi zero
saucemaster5000: Aw, for a second I thought Paul just wanted to say those words
TheMerricat: @Driosenth lol
Snowcookies: And Paul is gonna play this game on PiF one day yes? :P
Brozard: oh my
LordManiMani: This is what I imagine moon was
niccus: just in time for the double down, this game's extra crunchy
Driosenth: Also, the keys on the Unicomp version are not nearly as nice as the ones on my other IBM Model Ms, the oldest is 36 years old and still works
LordManiMani: Was that Strong Sad
AshBurnem: The characters remind me a lot of Epic Battle Fantasy.
LordManiMani: Art reminds me of.. Citizens of Earth
accountmadeforants: The first game to actually use the Switch's touchscreen for something other than the keyboard, perhaps :p
richard_ermen: New Glitch who dis.
GapFiller: there are other Reggies?
accountmadeforants: omfg
BusTed: lrrHORN lrrHORN
CaptainSpam: WOW.
AshBurnem: Stop, stop, he's already dead!
richard_ermen: Once again, Reggie at top of his game.
beowuuf: lrrWOW that E3 had a family :(
accountmadeforants: Yeah, Nintendo is still an ESA member, along with every other major video game publisher/developer.
accountmadeforants: (Also, ESA as an acronym messes me up. To be clear, Nintendo's not launching rockets into space, that we know of)
niccus: were the olympic games covered at the start?
Lithobraker: Like Secretary of State Blinken?
ButButTheJesus: "no I didn't say Abe Lincoln, I said Hey Blinkin, yo hold the reins man"
Juliamon: ah, *Bilken* rather than *Blinken*
ButButTheJesus: wait is that a real thing with dogs?
MAPBoardgames: That's the second biggest red and white skull I've ever seen!
Juliamon: YES
LordManiMani: That doesn't look near as bad as it could
saucemaster5000: Oh no can't unsee that
niccus: that's more often an option nowadays, pixel vs legible text
whenwearebothcats: Yes... game looks adorable but I hope there's a pixel font option!
accountmadeforants: I can handle the text, it's usually the unaligned pixel art that messes with me, yeah
saucemaster5000: this text or impact font
accountmadeforants: Loop Hero calls theirs "pixel" and "legible", I think :p
accountmadeforants: Oh, no, "Pixel", "High-res" and "Dyslexia-friendly"
ANeMzero: Ian has had some opinions about Default Unreal Font in Like a Dragon Ishin.
Bruceski: Sidenote: even if it'd be thematic to do otherwise, make sure the font is still readable
bytecaster: Slightly too large Arial is the hallmark of Watch+Play games and bad metaverses.
bytecaster: Though I guess the adjective "bad" is redundant here.
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
Lithobraker: Lucas Pope babee
LordZarano: Lucas Pope always writes VERY detailed dev logs
LordZarano: Turns out 3D 1-bit experience didn't transfer to 2D as well as he had hoped (spoiler for devblog)
LordManiMani: Curious if it will be forever locked on a system that many people can't get ahold of.
LordManiMani: Not a knock against him or the handheld
TheMerricat: @LordManiMani I'd reword that question to be "will this game actually mean anything if it wasn't on the playdate"
LordZarano: There's an official Playdate simulator for PC
LordManiMani: @themerricat not at all. It would mean something because of the developer if nothing else.
Snowcookies: thanks for the stream
bytecaster: Already?!
CAKHost: Thanks for the stream!
matthaus_c: LMAO
LordManiMani: @lordzarano ahh cool!
Ivalenz_: !next

LordManiMani: It was suggested that he's about 2/3rds through, but the longest dungeons are still ahead
TheMerricat: @Loadingreadyrun you might have missed it but you had a dev in chat near the end of the stream :D
They_Are_Alyx: Ooooh maps
