LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Rhythm Cafe (Heather and Ian continue their never-ending quest to play ALL THE RHYTHM GAMES! Game: Hi-Fi Rush) at Sun 04:00 PM PDT (11m from now).
GapFiller: right DST
Juliamon: Golden Week
GapFiller: or Fork Knife if yr over here
Juliamon: well... Golden "Week"
GapFiller: mmm two weeks to savour that extra hr
CAKHost: Despite me having set a calendar alarm and having seen it go off yesterday to warn me, I am surprised it is still Daylight savings.
CAKHost: Hi everyone! XD
Juliamon: Unfortunately, as we all know, the government.
GapFiller: case in point just been watching Match of the D
GapFiller: its amazing just how compelling car crashes can be
TemporallyAwry: Sure is great that we all agreed on the SAME SYSTEM of keeping time, sure would be silly if we all had different entirely arbitrary clock settings LuvOops
SymphonicLolita: thus begins the glorious time of year where I have to remember everyone else has a different concept of time
mtvcdm: Amazingly I've only had the Match of the Day thing on my periphery.
SymphonicLolita: <- lives in the blissful no-DST zone
GapFiller: just wait till they start having to figure all this shit out for the Moon
GapFiller: and space in general
Earthenone: galactic savings time?
GapFiller: SymphonicLolita been there done that and wd absolutely LOVE to be able to do it agin
mtvcdm: We all figured out Moonbase time didn't we? It goes Dawn, Alpha, Night, Zeta.
Juliamon: Fairly confident we as a species will render ourselves extinct before we ever have to worry about non-earth timezones
mtvcdm: It is 3:56 Alpha by my watch.
TemporallyAwry: @Juliamon Too slow - we already have Mars-Time for the rover program PrideShrug
GapFiller: is that extinct via slow death by a thousand cuts environmental damage ect or the quick and easy route of accidentally ourselves
SymphonicLolita: 7:18 In The Vacuum Of Space No One Can Hear You Scream
Juliamon: Yes.
Juliamon: we've already made substantial progress on the first
GapFiller: and come dangerously close to the second more than once
Earthenone: i just assume its a omae wa mou shindeiru situation
mtvcdm: Well, we're about to have music robots so it'll be fine I'm sure
accountmadeforants: UTC has no DST or timezones, just offsets. (And then there's Unix time, which doesn't even recognize the existence of units of time other than seconds.)
GapFiller: its sobering that both Able Archer and the Stanislav Petrov thing predated my presence on this planet
Juliamon: We only exist because some people fucked up catastrophically
SymphonicLolita: lrrARROWS lrrSIG
GapFiller: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG jlrrCooltunes jlrrCooltunes jlrrCooltunes
accountmadeforants: Incidentally, I will forever hate C#'s DateTime for having timezones defined as "UTC" and "Local". Local *where*?!
LurkerSpine: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG
accountmadeforants: lrrSIG seabatClap
TheAinMAP: katesAir
Ace__of__Hearts: the best part about this game is everything
Earthenone: localized entirely in our kitchen
SymphonicLolita: once all computers explode in 2038 we won't have to worry about it
GapFiller: thought theyd already sorted that out

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ponbern! (Today's storm count: 3)
accountmadeforants: @Ace__of__Hearts I'd say it dips a bit after the first two stages (but is still super competent). Then, once it hits its stride again in the mid-point, it's just non-stop bangers.
baskwalla: Hello all
Sunmare_Dragon37: @baskwalla hi
accountmadeforants: Meowdy
SymphonicLolita: I'm sure there's some minor piece of infrastructure written in kobol that everyone uses but no one remembers how it works that will explode and free us from the burden of the internet
TehAmelie: ooh, i got here just on the beat
mtvcdm: we're *all* on the beat in the Cafe
SaxPython: PogChamp
accountmadeforants: @SymphonicLolita Clearly this calls for Web 3.0 KappaHD

GapFiller: nalvThink COBOL NFT's
Sunmare_Dragon37: ar maybe Web 4.0
GapFiller: !picnic
LRRbot: lrrFINE THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC, IT'S FINE. lrrFINE
SymphonicLolita: lrrFINE
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
accountmadeforants: Frankly, I love the Web 3.0 moniker. Because by acknowledging Web 2.0 as a "thing" they're trying to succeed, they're already showing their whole ass.
kusinohki: this is weird - looking at the schedule for tomorrow and crossing the streams is listed as 8-10 (local to me time), but the graphic box has it starting at 7...
Pteraspidomorphi: So when the stream just stopped for me until I pressed pause and play, that wasn't just me?
TheAinMAP: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
Pteraspidomorphi: Whaaaat?
mtvcdm: Ethan's gone AGAIN?
iDangero: lrrFINE lrrFINE
mtvcdm: Someone really needs to keep a better eye on Ethan.
SkylerRingtail: There is indeed
SaxPython: I don't know what those words mean

Pteraspidomorphi: Legally distinct walking sims, both good
Invitare: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 7:05.
Invitare: not too early at least
Earthenone: ian knows all bird lore
duckace11: US and canada have done the Daylight savings pring forward thing

SaxPython: PogChamp SingsNote PogChamp
accountmadeforants: It does say it's "Similar to Outer Wilds and Edith Finch" on my store view, which is good
jpost042: head games always

SkylerRingtail: Wonder how Ian would feel about Phantom Brigade, what with the giant mech combat
accountmadeforants: Have a look at Ben's home streams, he'll waffle for 1.5 hours before gameplay. You can do it!
NotCainNorAbel: I have learned that G&P need a contract writer.
mtvcdm: I thought Heather only dealt in gaeses.
SymphonicLolita: heather has invisible drink today...
SaxPython: Stream -> Patreon -> ???? -> Profit!
Ace__of__Hearts: is this the oscars?
Earthenone: lrrSIG
Kelderan: Evening Rhythm frens
neisan2112: @Ace__of__Hearts Much better than that
mtvcdm: @Ace__of__Hearts I would pay good money to have Ian and Heather somehow wind up as Oscars hosts.
SaxPython: Make it so #1
Ace__of__Hearts: hey Ian did you see Toyota made a fully electric and standard AE 86 as a concept car?
accountmadeforants: Battery's probably running low
TheDailyMapleSyrup: Pease don't actually run!lol
Kelderan: Patreoroboros
Darleysam: oh like old Watch & Play?
mtvcdm: That was just Watch + Play once.
Lucaan: Hi Fi Rush is a very good game
Loonatic93: I tells ya, this game feels like a polyamorous relationship between No Straight Roads, Sailor Moon, and FLCL.
neisan2112: Oh man I remember those W/P days
adept_nekomancer: Are we that dangerous?
TheMerricat subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 78 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheMerricat! (Today's storm count: 6)
Earthenone: a Hi-Fi(ve)
Invitare: a HIGH FI-ve rush
CururuGuasu: Sofa memory
kusinohki: so this game is just a daydream while chilling on the couch??
accountmadeforants: I didn't see this until way into the game, I'm a bit sad I missed out on some of the meta dialogue
Invitare: see I need third person to be inverted vertical, but first person must be non-inverted
Invitare: because I'm controlling the camera
korvys: Historically accurate? You mean having knobs like on an oscilloscope?
tetradd01: Cam controls are dangerous...you need to make sure he stays hydrated and thriving and in his lane
jpost042: I think we've been in Waluigi years since 2020
Loonatic93: Tetris 99 never lets me change the camera controls.
SkylerRingtail: First red flag was incorporating AI
LurkerSpine: inverted controls are for flying a plane, not shooting a gun
mtvcdm: The dark web sees the light you know
adept_nekomancer: House of Lies: Robot edition!
duckace11: You call yourself out on your lies Heather
kusinohki: I've discovered it doesn't matter what camera controls I use. I always point in the wrong direction first...
RandomTrivia: Hi friends! lrrHEART Another monday off means I can catch more of this gloriousness
accountmadeforants: @Loonatic93 This is that Starcraft 2 situation - competitive advantage 'n all.
Loonatic93: @Loonatic93 Fair.
duckace11: impact reseitent
splatty1: sponsored by rubbermaid
Juliamon: Sterilite's even worse IME
Loonatic93: Pyrex > Rubbermade.
Bruceski: I got a 4-pack of small sandwich containers I use for frozen stuff. One completely shattered first time in there, the rest have held up for years with no issue. Plastics be weird.
mtvcdm: (game's drowning out you two slightly)
Juliamon: I can barely hear yall over the game
duckace11: is it just me or is the game a smidge loud
accountmadeforants: I still love Halo 1's way of setting the camera controls: It asks you to look in a direction, then uses then changes the settings based on which way you moved the stick
Pteraspidomorphi: Maybe it's a matter of making the characters a bit louder than the BGM
Earthenone: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 4:20 PM
RandomTrivia: sergeJustRight
korvys: Cursor
Earthenone: hotdog?
adept_nekomancer: ground plane?
korvys: Traditional for airplanes, which people are not
accountmadeforants: Airplane vs PTZ is how I call 'em
accountmadeforants: (Even though the Z isn't actually part of it)
Loonatic93: You mean like Traditional English (UK) and Simplified English (US)?
Loonatic93: lrrBEEJ
korvys: Chinese (simplified) and Chinese (airplane)
Juliamon: how is US simplified when UK doesn't even have y'all'd've
baskwalla: No you!
RandomTrivia: @Juliamon Taking all those letters out makes it simpler
GapFiller: Loonatic93 nalvCool
korvys: !quote adam
LRRbot: Quote #5453: "I float into that bank like an angel! Like a t-posing angel." —Adam [2018-10-29]
betweenmyself: *Morgan Freeman voiceover* “Turns out she would not be fine.”
laundreydhull: @loonatic93 Yes. We (Simp)Plifieds Apologize for not being taught the Traditional dialect.
Pteraspidomorphi: This game definitely rewards looking up. Over and over.
Invitare: your fingers would hurt very quickly...
PandoraHex: Where are we up to stage wise?
mtvcdm: Just going off to fight the Sharks
Lucaan: There's so many cool details in this game
Earthenone: maybe he will grow a beard
ImmortalLen: SOmetime sonic just bails if you wait long enough
mtvcdm: Yeah, Sonic would just leave and kick you back to the title screen.
RandomTrivia: Most importantly, he's snapping OFF THE BEAT
e_bloc: Corgo100 Corgo100 Corgo100 Corgo100
betweenmyself: @immortallen Sonic CD. Idle animation leads to instant game over.
CAKHost: Was this from a japanese development team? Mostly asking as I know Japanese tends to use a lot of phrases for sounds.
CAKHost: Sound effects, rather
Earthenone: this is the future there are no rival companies
Loonatic93: Rival Company. No Straight Roads.
mtvcdm: I do hear the Mets pay unreasonably well these days
gruntage77: Using a Flying V for a weapon is something I never thought I'd live to see
Invitare: @CAKHost same people that made The Evil Within
TheMerricat: Bad Ian bad!
Invitare: and also the Evil Within 2
kersmushh: @gruntage77 your melee combatant needs an axe, after all
Earthenone: is the sequel to no straight roads, called only byroads?
baskwalla: Mozart OP
mtvcdm: You could literally just call a rhythm Smash game "Beat Em Up"
adept_nekomancer: The stealth pun.
Loonatic93: @Earthenone Don't you mean Only Bi-Roads.
RandomTrivia: Karate Man from Rhythm Heaven with all the combo moves
Bruceski: Rhythm Fighter. Karate Man vs Parappa
gruntage77: @gruntage77 Killer riffs, I'm guessing
LordZarano: Ooh rhythm based smash bros though...
adept_nekomancer: The only counter for Mozart is stairs.
betweenmyself: In Ian’s hypothetical Rhythm-Smash game, what rhythm game protag fulfills the Dan Hibiki/Pichu (jokingly underpowered) role?
Pennzance: As long as some Crypt of the Necrodancer characters show up too
CAKHost: @CAKHost Just looked that game up and yeah, the team is Japanese! Just curious because of the use of snap word for the snap animation. C:
Earthenone: is this the plan for the next atumnal rumble type stream?
e_bloc: double team dio lrrWOW
mtvcdm: I want the Glee Kids as commentators
ImmortalLen: No no Ian, throw Dio in there, we deserve it.
Invitare: and the Ring reporter from the Rhythm Heaven minigame
kersmushh: well, mozart kicked skrillex in that one ERB...
Earthenone: just custom make all the rythem charicters in WWE and let em have at it?
GDwarble: Are we not men? No, we are us, DEVO!
Loonatic93: And since this is Rhythm Cafe the Dio in question is RJD.
TehAmelie: there could be a VR Jojo game where you have to lean properly
nerdmor: @lrr
Thus_Spooped_Zarathustra : Quick, everybody @ Bandai Namco about this Jojo rhythm game!
ImmortalLen: Yo, a JOJO rytham game where all the nameshakes get included as song?! That would rule!
niccus: nobody can afford that
TehAmelie: possibly a game where you put the Switch controller on your head would have more the right kind of motion sensitivity
RandomTrivia: I'm absolutely here for Ian putting some TF2 Soldier absurdity into Rekka
baskwalla: Mech control with video editing
nerdmor: @ian How do you like the semblance of this game and FLCL?
SkylerRingtail: It's a very niche genre! Only other game I know of that does it is Battlestar Galactica Deadlock
LordZarano: Public transport is important, even in a capitalist distopian future!
Loonatic93: @LordZarano Tell that to the Yanks.
Thus_Spooped_Zarathustra : What's the game Ian was talking about? I missed the title, and that sounds right up my alley.
mtvcdm: Jump jump! Slide slide!
laundreydhull: Like Caporeia? Probably?
SkylerRingtail: Game has some issues, but there's nothing like the feeling of lining up a perfect railgun shot through multiple buildings
GDwarble: @Thus_Spooped_Zarathustra Phantom Brigade
Thus_Spooped_Zarathustra : Perfect; thank you!
Invitare: oh these are Rekka's tram lines
Loonatic93: Well the cat's inspiration is obviously Sailor Moon, and you will never convince me otherwise.
RandomTrivia: Oh that transition into the animated cutscene *chefkiss*
nerdmor: The animation director said he took inspiration directly from there to do the Anime parts :)
Verrain2: Dragon's Lair meets Beat Saber.
mtvcdm: That was good
Juliamon: *that* is how you break the 4th wall
violetblight: god i love this game’s style
GDwarble: @SkylerRingtail The turn-based real-time thing? I feel like Frozen Synapse kinda invented the style
jpost042: very good
Spolin: person-shaped holke
Spolin: hole*
violetblight: everything here is so strong and i love it
Pteraspidomorphi: He just wants to stack
Invitare: over 808?
KeytarCat: Like a dark souls npc
KeytarCat: Doesn't even blame you for attacking
Lucaan: The writing in this game is so freaking good
mtvcdm: So many forklifts and it won't let us drive them. I guess you can't have everything.
RandomTrivia: Hahahahahaha
RandomTrivia: I love a game that doesn't have a 4th wall so much as a 4th window
violetblight: this game is so unashamed of being silly and kinda cringe and i love it
Loonatic93: Chai? Pepperment? Is one of the characters going to be named "English Breakfast?"
RandomTrivia: Nobody saw that
Pteraspidomorphi: Loonatic93: weeeellll
mtvcdm: Good enough!
Pteraspidomorphi: :D
KeytarCat: We really are a cat
violetblight: mm
violetblight: OH YES I LOVE THIS ONE
Spolin: throwing shade at SEGA
RandomTrivia: BAHAHAHAHAHA
kersmushh: take THAT, sega!
CururuGuasu: Vandalay is Avro?
igloojoe111 subscribed with Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, igloojoe111! (Today's storm count: 7)
duckace11: I love thatss the reason for your path being laid out
TehAmelie: should we be worried about the amount of things we have to remember how to do, if we're still in the tutorial in week 2?
kersmushh: they're giving sega grief for tradmarking the crazy taxi arrow
kersmushh: trademarking, even
hd_dabnado: of course ian does :D
baskwalla: Caution Moose for sure
Loonatic93: Slow Children at Play.
violetblight: i dont think it ever gets too overwhelming, they dont add much more
e_bloc: goose crossing
adept_nekomancer: bear crossing
kersmushh: @Loonatic93 they put one of those up when we moved, and mom thought it was very insulting - never did figure out why.... 🤔🤔🤔
Salbastro: They dont Left, they Down
betweenmyself: The Kennywood amusement park has an Arrow Mascot: https://images.app.goo.gl/7aYyTW4L84Y9gYQU7
laundreydhull: U sure u can't- solo this 1st one?
kersmushh: @mtvcdm i'm a fan of the one with the "speed limit enforced by aircraft" sign, with an apache hovering nearby
nerdmor: Fun fact: originally, the idea of traffic signs having different shapes was to communicate importance: the more sides, the more important they are, and circles have "infinite" sides
Pteraspidomorphi: There's a little animation between waves in a fight usually
mjiig: Do traffic lights count as a kind of road sign?
Lucaan: Moving while hitting a button is actually useful for when you summon her out of range of the thing you are trying to shoot. The game looks for how far Chai is from the button rather than Peppermint
mtvcdm: A circle has one side. That makes it the least important sign.
PharaohBender27: A light rather than a sign, but I'm a fan of the East German "Ampelmännchen" (or little traffic light man) for crosswalks - https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ampelm%C3%A4nnchen#/media/File:Ampelmann_gr%C3%BCn_&_rot.jpg
gibbousm: Fridge Friend
Lucaan: Smidge eogOh
accountmadeforants: Invoke <PEPPERMINT>
duckace11: I love new hampshire's route marker signs because they have an outline of the old man of the mountain
mtvcdm: @duckace11 A now-deceased rock formation
korvys: !advice
LRRbot: In order to make clear parts more effective, select three.
hd_dabnado: hey chat, drink some water
adept_nekomancer: Well, this is streamer mode, right?
gibbousm: what effect does a Full Ian Partner Gauge do?
CururuGuasu: Hail hydrate!
Pteraspidomorphi: IIRC wasn't smidge voiced by the game designer?
duckace11: @duckace11 I know but it doesn't make the signs any less cool
Lucaan: The director, I believe
KeytarCat: Someone talking about Nestle in here?
Invitare: I saw a sparkling thing
TheDailyMapleSyrup: Capitalism is one step away from building industry around breathing air
SkylerRingtail: Reminder from last week: you can hit the valve on the pipe
ImmortalLen: The shiny wheel?
Verrain2: Thevalve
ashteranic: The valve seems to be blinking, yeah
Vonbane: literally blinking at you
splatty1: you know, the problem with everything being colerful and bouncing to the beat means seeing the giant flashing valve is much harder
gibbousm: is the game only in one time signature?
niccus: afaik 4/4 single tempo, yeah
kersmushh: @gibbousm ye
kersmushh: promotes accessibility
violetblight: yeah id like fancier stuff but it makes sense
laundreydhull: @thedailymaplesyrup you would think there'd be any sustainable life remaining to prolong that particular venture?
adept_nekomancer: The way this game does mobility is really nice.
korvys: The best defence is a good hook to the face... or something
mtvcdm: ABC. Always Be Capturingfaceswithahook.
Raincoast_Bear: Ah! What you want lrrHEATHER is HiFi SMASH!
mtvcdm: !addquote (Ian) [now] Take that, commerce.
LRRbot: New quote #8483: "Take that, commerce." —Ian [2023-03-12]
violetblight: peppermint: you called? chai: oh just wanted to say hi
Pteraspidomorphi: This game is mechanics all the way down
Geldaran: ::bites tongue::
Pteraspidomorphi: !yay
LRRbot: Yaaaaaaaay...
CAKHost: Nooo you are killing them! D:
Lithobraker: Just got in, did I miss us rekkin rekka?
duckace11: oh right I rember now how last week we joked about the "miltiarization of a normal office"
violetblight: chai you dumbass
NightValien28: Lithobraker you are just in time
niccus: just give ian a controller hooked up to the same player and have pseudo-coop
mtvcdm: @CAKHost We're giving them release
Loonatic93: According to the book, yes!
jpost042: pigeon shoot?
CAKHost: @CAKHost I'm not too sure that's better?! XD
betweenmyself: Peppermint totally down for animal cruelty pennyWhat
korvys: Let's call Randy Johnson
Lithobraker: If I had to clean roofs and ledges I'd imagine pigeons would make me pretty annoyed
bipsnpips: u can shoot sign btw
bipsnpips: idk if it does anything or if its like just an achievement thing tho
violetblight: i imagine its a thing on the wall
violetblight: i think its up on the dpad to switch attacks
Verrain2: Menu boss.
Travilogue: d-pad?
NightValien28: nice
mtvcdm: It's always fun having space jump.
TehAmelie: push button, receive beats
fuzzy_died: that was usch a good Crapshot
laundreydhull: LUL lrrSPOOP NotLikeThis jlrrFacepalm
duckace11: so she's going to have a gaint mech right?

violetblight: enby rekka headcanon
Invitare: I think you an scroll down
shurtal: scroll down?
mtvcdm: IThere was more
violetblight: to be fair we know they can extend the length of weeks
adept_nekomancer: So... 24300% of the output 15 months ago?
teejayrivers: May I have the slaps by themselves please?
GDwarble: Hello protagonists of The Evil Within, what are you doing in this game?
teejayrivers: I mean what?
NightValien28: aaaay there's sebastian
hd_dabnado: I love these two
Greyah: I *love* these two.
CAKHost: Detective bot?
Lucaan: Best character
shurtal: such a GOOD reference
NightValien28: he is the protag of evil within
Pteraspidomorphi: Yeah, it's a homage apparently
laundreydhull: Ight then Mister noir-bot
Halvhir: Evil Within reference (another game from the dev)
splatty1: 3 billion times the output of 5 years ago
GDwarble: Protagonists of the previous game the devs worked on
Driosenth: 3x increase per quarter for 5 years or 3^(4x5) or 3486784401x increase over 5 years
Invitare: Rekkamania
GDwarble: @Driosenth Oh, right, it stacks
shurtal: welcome to the THUNDERDOME
ZekeSFails: 808 my beloved
adept_nekomancer: Yep... it goes exponential pretty quick
violetblight: REKKAAAAAAA
mtvcdm: It's ROBOT FIGHTING TIME!
laundreydhull: Aw, Sidewalk Slam anyone?
Bluemage76 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 78 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Bluemage76! (Today's storm count: 8)
Salbastro: this is just how she introduces herself everytime someone comes into her office
Invitare: keep an eye on 808
korvys: her animation reminds me of Archer
mtvcdm: !advice
LRRbot: End talking
Lucaan: The streamer mode song is so good. I actually prefer it to the licensed somg.
GredGredmansson: OOh I got here at a good time
violetblight: this song is so good
korvys: Oh, it's a charging bull-type boss
Lithobraker: Point to the sign, they like it when you point at the sign.
laundreydhull: Like that Armstrong guy from Fullmetal Alchemist; his reflexes are intense
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Reminder to our overseas friends that we’ve just had Daylight Savings and not all of you have it at the same time we do, so be sure to double-check stream start times for the next fortnight. | (conversely, our next Fornite is not presently scheduled) | http://www.loadingreadyrun.com/live || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1635069005965967361
betweenmyself: Boss health bar draining left to right… Interesting.
Lucaan: eogJam
mtvcdm: This all seems fine
TehAmelie: are we really going to do more damage to her than the current through her heart just now?
violetblight: god i love her
optmisticnihilist: who says she still has a heart?
KeytarCat: It's just the timing marker like you have for finishers
SkylerRingtail: Oh that's neat
letfireraindown: I think the green is the full area during the whole charge. It's there for the AOE slam down too. but the red ticks off to the beat showingthe when it will complete
mtvcdm: Oh no, are we gonna get straight piped?
teejayrivers: ummm
NightValien28: so dead
optmisticnihilist: that hair swipe
GredGredmansson: tomDab
teejayrivers: Heavenly Rekka Buster
Greyah: Oh wow. I hadn't seen that before. Rad.
nerdmor: Remember that peppermint also does damage
ZekeSFails: Good thing chai doesn’t have a brain to concuss 🤔
Loonatic93: I really want to see Jay Justice do a cosplay of Rekka.
violetblight: chai takes so many hits and has no braincells to lose in any of them
PandoraHex: I don't know why you've decided you can only attack her when she's dizzy
GredGredmansson: "what you're supposed to do" Hit her?
mtvcdm: Yeah, you can hit Rekka whenever, you don't have to wait for the end of the sequence.
KeytarCat: I think we're looking for a safe strat, and I can't tell if that exists for this fight
Geldaran: wasn't sure how much backseating was allowed, but yeah, this game rewards aggression.
laundreydhull: Wow, a very 'Scott Pilgrim' Game Over
Juliamon: Rekka even said it herself
GredGredmansson: yeah its why the combo meter is hit dependent, and why one of the scores is based on time
mtvcdm: The game 100% wants you to get in there and slug it out.
KeytarCat: I wonder if there's an ideal distance to draw the big charge
violetblight: chai is too stupid to take things slow
GredGredmansson: I guess it's different when you come at this from a rhythm game angle and not a [insert name of DMC/Bayonetta's genre]
violetblight: yeah
mtvcdm: The letter grade actively drains every second you're not in there getting hits.
Geldaran: The strong rythm parts kick in later.
TheAinMAP: katesAir
laundreydhull: Weh? The boss sequence quick saves?
mtvcdm: Oh, okay it checkpointed.
Lithobraker: Now I really want a mod that adds this gameplay style for metal gear rising revengence bossfights
KeytarCat: I played a hotseat co-op game where one of us used different controls. Good games let you change that fast
GredGredmansson: yeah Ian's got the right idea
Laserbeaks_Fury: Command Grab

GredGredmansson: Yep, Rekka's 2nd form, as a smoldering pile of ash
ZekeSFails: We just straight up murdered her
laundreydhull: Oooh, she subtlety nearly flipped a bird right there!!

DaxStrife: Oh, I was really expecting that guy to be voiced by Jackson Public, he has perfect Monarch-face.
niccus: no sense of opsec
GredGredmansson: @DaxStrife No, its Todd Haberkorn
ZekeSFails: Time to go find a screenshot of what was on the pc
DaxStrife: @GredGredmansson Right, I was saying he *should* be voiced by Jackson Public.
ZekeSFails: There’s a LOT of freeze frame bonus stuff like that in here
laundreydhull: Cough
Juliamon: No mind to control baby
GredGredmansson: I assume we've already discussed that the main villain is Sonic, right?
teejayrivers: USB-XL
Pteraspidomorphi: I'm sure it's a proprietary Vandelay interface
Loonatic93: USB-Pi.
mtvcdm: oh chai
DaxStrife: This is a dark future; instead of making better USB plugs they just made them bigger.
violetblight: chai
GredGredmansson: cmon chai
violetblight: chai you sweet summer idiot
ZekeSFails: Daily reminder that Chai is 25

DaxStrife: Oooh, literal mood lighting.
NightValien28: IAN
CAKHost: She has dramatic lighting installed
NightValien28: do it Ian
niccus: oh my god light switch attached to your smartwatch heart monitor
teejayrivers: It works well for dramatic moments, but it's rough when you need to go to bed Kappa
GredGredmansson: call it: "The Madpper"
niccus: room light switch to turn off, spotlight to turn on
mtvcdm: (get all rewards?)
Lucaan: Just get up from your couch, lift your arms, and say "ANGRY!"
violetblight: you get extra on the wall for hitting cheevos, collect all button is there to make it simpler
Geldaran: yep. there;s a lot of that.
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh are those picks?

Geldaran: ::eye roll::
violetblight: i dont think that word means what you think it means
Lithobraker: Jeeze Chai, no shoes on the couch!
GredGredmansson: pet the kitty
LordZarano: I don't need the dock, I keep mu Playdate in its flip case
GredGredmansson: catty cake
KeytarCat: @Lithobraker Those aren't shoes 👀
LordZarano: Easier to pocket it to take out with me that way
LurkerSpine: Cheer100 Game Good
PMAvers: Man, I'm just so happy Catalog is finally here. It's so much more handy keeping things updated than side-loading.
NightValien28: oh this gonna be good
GredGredmansson: TRex w/ Rollerblades?
teejayrivers: Remember kids, subtly is for cowards
NightValien28: JOJO MAN

laundreydhull: What lrrIAN ?
violetblight: god this fame is so good
Earthenone: is this a <message deleted>
DaxStrife: See: total Monarch face!
GredGredmansson: Fun Fact: Zanzo' japanese VA is Okuyasu from Part 4
violetblight: game
teejayrivers: Literally the idea guy
mtvcdm: Oh no he's Elon Musk's timeline
Lithobraker: He wes making jojo poses in the zoom meeting
mtvcdm: !clip

RockPusher: escher3THUMBSUP
violetblight: lmao
niccus: zanzo's japanese VA is, in fact, Wataru Takagi
TheAinMAP: katesFine
LordZarano: escher3THUMBSUP
GredGredmansson: I don't know a ton of VA trivia for the whole cast but that one was hard to miss
splatty1: It is good to retest hypothesis
Spolin: they also have the anime voice of Dio as Kale
GredGredmansson: PROFESSOR! LAVA!! HOT!!!
betweenmyself: Red crystals look destructible? riffThink
NightValien28: hammer sword, swammer
DaxStrife: @GredGredmansson LUL
Spolin: Kale's jp VA is Takehito Koyasu, btw
adept_nekomancer: I prefer the cone of science.
laundreydhull: Of shame?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Don't go climbing Lavafalls
hd_dabnado: I presume sulfur like?
mtvcdm: !addquote (Ian) [now] Do not attempt to go climb the tower of lava.
LRRbot: New quote #8484: "Do not attempt to go climb the tower of lava." —Ian [2023-03-12]
Laserbeaks_Fury: Please stick to the magma and volcanoes your used to
Juliamon: the forbidden pudding
niccus: very briefly spicy
korvys: rock
Invitare: rocky I would assume
violetblight: the forbidden honey
SquareDotCube: the hottest chili
Manae: I'm sure it tastes gneiss
GredGredmansson: cinnamon can be spicy I guess
GredGredmansson: Cinnamon: The Final Flavor
korvys: I thought space tasted like steak
TehAmelie: would you be able to experience any flavor before the nerves of your tongue turn to ash?
Lithobraker: Wouldn't it depend on if it was basaltic or silica rich lava?
CAKHost: I'm pretty sure Beej said space tasted kinda fruity? When they had the Space Cococola?
niccus: google says too many vape flavors are named after lava and/or magma to know
GredGredmansson: that robot's fishing in lava
UnusuallyLargeMoth: given to understand the cinnamon smell comes from the materials on the outside of space suits and space stations vaporizing from the vacuum
violetblight: “dont forget to use it” i didnt use those once
violetblight: lol
GredGredmansson: do they know Zagreus?
Travilogue: Oh! Can we fish also?
korvys: Nice of them to invent lazy robots
Invitare: I'm not sure you could even bite lava, temperature aside. It's more solid that usually represented
Lithobraker: Space smells like polymers that have been blasted by atomic oxygen and ultraviolet. Tons of broken double bonds
niccus: the fruity thing is ethyl formate from a dust cloud around the center of the milky way, it's the main flavor of raspberry, and is partially that of rum
mtvcdm: Why would you ever do gaming journalism to yourself?
theinvisiblevoice: @Invitare it's a personal gripe that media always gets the density of lava completely wrong

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, until_may! (Today's storm count: 9)
Lithobraker: @invitare pahoehoe lava can be really low viscosity, it nearly gets to honey level
thegrandpigeon: fun fact: in the montrh that forspoken came out, hi-fi rush outsold it
PMAvers: Checkpoint: The finest source of gaming journalism on the internet.
TheMerricat: "Lava is between 100,000 and 1.1 million times more viscous than that of water, based on temperature and silica content. It also is three times more dense than water, Live Science reports. That means falling into a pit of lava is like falling into a pool filled with peanut butter - you'd float on top."
betweenmyself: @theinvisiblevoice perhaps they just vastly overestimate the density of human beings?
mtvcdm: It's always easier and more fun to sit around sassing things than to perform work, especially if you can make the sass into the actual job
fuzzy_died: Uncle PumpPo
korvys: Oh, *you* are the one to blame for that one :D
niccus: y'alldience
mtvcdm: People have brands, but people don't always stay in those brands.
GredGredmansson: HahaThink
laundreydhull: Duh heck GladOS?
Salbastro: remember, follow the Vandeley Arrow
KeytarCat: It wasn't a joke by Kathleen, but it was a Kathleen joke!
Invitare: a *Vandeley* arrow
SomePersonNo: Some person you say? LUL
GredGredmansson: @Invitare (tm)
adept_nekomancer: Instead of a beat-em-up, it's a pick-em-up
Invitare: how did those rubber tyres survive the lava?
violetblight: god this enemy
GredGredmansson: thank you for having me heather, its great to be here lrrWHEELER
TheWriterAleph: wheely claptrap
niccus: time to breakie wheeler
zimmercj: cen-car
CururuGuasu: Rhythm games on motorcycles!
TheTekkieman: The game would definitely have benefitted from a lock-on from this point onward.
violetblight: yeah the camera frels a bit awkward
KeytarCat: Is there not a lock?
TheTekkieman: There is not.
KeytarCat: shame
GredGredmansson: I guess the grapple is the closest thing to a lock
Lithobraker: @invitare silicone instead of rubber maybe
adept_nekomancer: I think it's Vandelay-ism in here.

mtvcdm: I was given arrows as an assignment and goddammit I am fulfilling the assignment they gave me
Lucaan: I watched another streamer say the same exact thing about those helmets
KeytarCat: I have one of those NFT Burger joints in my area, and I've never been more tempted to do an arson
8_Escape: I’m in the “too many arrows camp”.
8_Escape: Also NFT burger!? What the fuck?
violetblight: i forgot how long this track is
KeytarCat: @8_Escape Oh, yeah, NFT bros contracting burger places to brand as the apes, in this case
violetblight: yeah some of the encounters are pretty rough
mtvcdm: The checkpointing in this game feels generous.
GredGredmansson: this is a game that WANTS you to play it
GredGredmansson: very little wasted time
TheMerricat: "Nguyen has spent nearly $387,000 on one Bored Ape and two Mutant Apes that will adorn the burger boxes, fry holders, and soft drink cups at Bored & Hungry. He hopes to accept payment for meals in crypto, with discounts offered initially to those who own a Bored Ape NFT."
GredGredmansson: *right-clicks*
Lucaan: They definitely put a lot of effort to make sure the whole experience is just fun. You can tell the game being fun was their number 1 priority, which so many games seem to miss.
GredGredmansson: I remember a review saying essentially "This feels like a Gamecube game in the best way possible"
Lucaan: I've heard PS2 game, but yeah, same sentiment
korvys: Feels like a dreamcast game - like a Jet Set Radio sort of thing
violetblight: this is the kinda game that woulda been a cult classic in 2008 or smth
violetblight: earlier even idk im too young for those eras

Electrodyne: Secret podcast?
SaxPython: SingsNote
Electrodyne: Alllll right
niccus: so the dust cloud with the raspberry flavoring (sagittarius B2) is about the mass of 3 million suns, and its concentration of raspberry flavor is at around 1 ppb, so that's comfortably enough raspberry flavoring to drown all people on earth
GapFiller: mmm raspberry
Electrodyne: FROOT FROOT
