SquareDotCube: Job's done
BusTed: way to job
GapFiller: !upweagle
LRRbot: Nope.
Plasterboard: zugzug
Plasterboard: ready to work
RockPusher: YouCallMe?
KV1NN4: dang Paul
BusTed: The town is under attack!
Metric_Furlong: dabu
Plasterboard: dark side of the UwU
EvilBadman: It's sonic's 30th anniversary!
RockPusher: Surprise! Beta! *jazz hands*
GapFiller: Multiverses was what they were talkin abt on LRRMtG yesterday right
bytecaster: If you want us to think of your game as a beta, you are not allowed to charge for microtransactions.
Plasterboard: Maybe it is a bear and it needs to hybernate for the summer
GapFiller: lrrWOW
KV1NN4: 'Beta' feels like a fabrication at this point
constablecrab: This whole situation doesn’t pass the smell test.
saucemaster5000: WB is an incredible tire fire to watch this last year
DeM0nFiRe: Instead of claiming it was a beta, they should have said it was a social experiment
TemporallyAwry: That 100% sounds like something WB would say actually.
GapFiller: yeh actually by Warners recent standards this isnt that much of a low
bytecaster: I want them to double down now and claim that it was a closed alpha!
EvilBadman: Yeah, I'd pretty squarely blame Discovery(Warner)
SquareDotCube: It's as if live service games have an unsustainable lifespan in the current market...
Earthenone: !store
LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun has a store! You can buy Shirt, or Sleeve, or Playmat, or Pin, or Other! Check out https://store.loadingreadyrun.com/ for the full catalog.
lord_wertornion: I still had multiversus installed. and undid that right after watching checkpoint
TheMerricat: This is going to be another tax write off for WB as the new CEO continues to gut it.
RockPusher: Gonna be fun when the consumer protection regulators in various markets start asking questions :D
Bugberry: I recall Magic Arena was in open beta for awhile without a clear end. The Closed beta ending had the hard reset though.
GapFiller: there are so many other current Warner moves that this (worryingly) doesnt seem that bad compared to
saucemaster5000: I mean, taking away the well received things people like are kinda WB's MO at this point, at least Multiversus is coming back and the creators are paid
Izandai: @Bugberry Yes, but it was always explicitly said that it was "in beta". And then it left beta.
RockPusher: Bugberry Arena team were *very clear* communicating the status of betas and wipes and what would happen with transactions - which I greatly appreciated
SquareDotCube: It's good, just not live service sustainable.
Earthenone: i remember playing it for an hour or so and thinking, maybe ill play it when it releases
GapFiller: yeh iirc the no refunds thing was talked abt on LRRMtG yesterday
Izandai: Yeah, also anything you bought with real money during Arena's beta stayed with your account. And Arena didn't go away with 6 months at the end of the beta.
EvilBadman: @saucemaster5000 To be fair, this is papa Discovery who owns WB stuff now being really big into cost-cutting
Plasterboard subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 7 months!
Plasterboard: Would Twitch Prime Subs count as "beta" subs since they go away after a month?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Plasterboard! (Today's storm count: 18)
Izandai: For six months, rather.
SquareDotCube: This is a space where the players expect a complete game on release plus more onward. That's the Brawl market for you.
Bugberry: Under Night InBirth
saucemaster5000: @saucemaster5000 I mean, it's Zaslav
LordZarano: Them's Fighting Herds
KV1NN4: I'm betting the Discovery Merger probably mucked some stuff up for some characters
bytecaster: To be fair, it must be hard to match Sakurai at making a Smash game.
GapFiller: nalvThink hmm how does this compare to Warners doubling down on Ezra Miller eg
bytecaster: So we have an ultimatum?
GapFiller: or dropping HBO Max
TheMerricat: The be mildly fair, if you got the game off Steam, and you had _just_ purchased something from it. There is huge chance that Valve will be happy to refund you.
EvilBadman: @GapFiller Lol at you ignoring the Rowling in the room
SquareDotCube: No.
GapFiller: EvilBadman too low hanging
RockPusher: TheMerricat s/happy/*legally obligated*
SquareDotCube: The solution is to eat the losses and establish a franchise thus creating a fanbase.
TheMerricat: I doubt that even factors into it. It's no skin off their nose to refund the money back for something like that.
KV1NN4: Man... they coulda had multiple version of Velma
DeM0nFiRe: Put Waluigi in MultiVersus you cowards!
Drasvin: !smash
LRRbot: Sakurai has left. His planet needed him.
SquareDotCube: The first attempt will have problems as typical
EvilBadman: MultiVersus was a main stage game at Evo2022, it's wild the fall the interest in that game has suffered
bytecaster: MultiVersus: A Realm Reborn?
KeytarCat: Adam's always looking to make a few new brain wrinkles
aerohydra: no mans sky
TheMerricat: Yeah, Heather's point is valid, regardless of what happens going forward they are going to have a horrible time getting people to buy back into the game after being burnt like this.
KV1NN4: Reboot, Rebrand, Recoup Losses
v_nome: That Marvel Heroes game too
laundreydhull: relaunch from what lrrGRAHAM mentioned game first impressions- wait, this talk still Multi-Versus?
Earthenone: thats how i feel about ff14
Earthenone: i remember, im not going through that again
TheMerricat: @aerohydra I'd argue that NMS was a different thing, they didn't shut down and relaunch. They just kept plugging at the game till it met promises and then exceeded them
UnhingedBear subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 51 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, UnhingedBear! (Today's storm count: 19)
Invitare: (assuming they do plan to relaunch)
Izandai: I think they're just banking on the second release hype.
TheMerricat: And the thing that takes Metaverse out of this argument of being 'like' FF14 and NMS, is the game wasn't "broken" it just wasn't uberpopular.
MagicalAttackGecko: i still think its just the server costs
Bugberry: There are some people who avoid early access because they get everything they want out of a game by the time it fully releases.
EvilBadman: I don't envy the people trying to run that risk assessment honestly
TheMerricat: I still am arguing that this is 100% getting another tax break for a 'failed investment' and it'll never show back up.
saucemaster5000: @TheMerricat Oooh I'd give it 60% but boy that'd be incredible... especially if they didn't tell Player First Games
ThorSokar: does the archive.org page of it mention beta?
SquareDotCube: Again this is one of those things where Smash established a good framework and profiteers can't stand for just that
EvilBadman: @ThorSokar There was a youtube announce of the open beta still on their account, but again people just assumed it was out after a point because "beta/early access" nomenclature is muddy as hell
KV1NN4: I wish companies like this wouldn't mess witht he goodwill of kids and gamers
TheMerricat: People held out for Half-Life 3 for a decade, people are still holding out for Star Citizen. It entirely depends on how well they spin the hype.
KeytarCat: I wish for not capitalism
bytecaster: I just tried starting the version I have still installed and it prompted me to agree to the EULA: "There was an error loading the content of this EULA". So that's working.
Earthenone: heres hoping it comes back as a dating sim? :P
saucemaster5000: finally, I can make eyes at Marvin the Martian
EvilBadman: Probably a later topic but WB just delayed Suicide Squad to 2024 too
RockPusher: tqsSmug
GapFiller: absolute unit look at the size of that lad
TheMerricat: @EvilBadman Movie or Video Game?
EvilBadman: Game
TheMerricat: My recollection of that type of cabinet is that you looked ODWN at the CRT, so if this was ant all accurate, even having a joystick down there is going to be unplayable. :P
TheMerricat: down evevn
Plasterboard: They should have just made a giant cocktail arcade cabinet instead of a standup with the knees cut off.
Earthenone: i like how they are letting people recapture their youth by adjusting the size of the cabinent so you feel like a child again
v_nome: Get Shaq to come play it
Plasterboard: It feels like an extremely lame compromise once someone came to the design table and the realities of the dimensions sunk in
bytecaster: I want them to have put actuators in the big controls so they mimic your inputs.
TheMerricat: ^

Bruceski: And that makes the whole pun work. I thought it was a cooking stream that drifted.
LathosTiran: the monster 6502 makes a processor 12 x 15 inches https://monster6502.com/
TheMerricat: @Bruceski :D
Plasterboard: probably be about the size of an airhockey puck
GapFiller: tbf this seems onbrand for a Russian company
LordZarano: And you could sell the giant quarters in the gift shop
GapFiller: Russian has always been essentially a law unto itself when it comes to this stuff
TheMerricat: Anyone want to give odds on if the folk who were behind this are 'welcome' back into the Nintendo family if/once Russia is ever no longer persona no grata?
RockPusher: A Russian company corrupt? That seems unlikely. lrrBEEJ
GapFiller: they generally just dont acknowledge such piffling issues as rights and that
RockPusher: What are WIPO going to do, impose sanctions? lrrBEEJ
GapFiller: if anything itd be arguably more odd if a Russian company in this position didnt do this
MagicalAttackGecko: IP theft history has a lot of fun stories
Bugberry: basically modern day privateers.
TheMerricat: "Nintendo says it's in talks with the company, but isn't aware of any software sales to Russia"
Bugberry: Russia does what Nintendon't
GapFiller: it feels theres also a cultural difference at play here in that we are discussing this stuff from a position of respect for laws
TheMerricat: "Nintendo also said it's "aware that several companies in Russia operate parallel imports of goods, including Nintendo products," but clarified that it's "not affiliated with such companies and has no involvement in parallel import activities in Russia.""
GapFiller: which is absolutely NOT the case in many parts of the world
GapFiller: Russia especially
virre_: They removed all the logos
virre_: and then served burgers from what I seen
PixelArtDragon: Sort of like Fanta during WW2
TemporallyAwry: WacBonalds, eh?
Plasterboard: repurposed/rebranded -> "Welcome to the Golden Arcs"
virre_: Its quite possibly McDonalds would not sell because they don't like the US anymore
RockPusher: They're not, but they could - it would be the same outcome either way
GapFiller: if anything pirating Nintendo seems easier than pirating McDonalds given stealing game code is prob easier than physical food supply chains and industry processes
TheMerricat: https://media.cnn.com/api/v1/images/stellar/prod/220612082509-01-russia-mcdonalds-rebrand.jpg this is the 'new' Russian McDonald's logo. And they are called “Vkusno & Tochka,”
TheMerricat: @GapFiller On the other hand the entire McDonald's supply chain in Russia, is in Russia. Where the Nintendo chain... probably isn't?
Izandai: It would be really fucking funny if Vkusno & Tochka someday becomes a global burger chain to rival McDonalds.
GapFiller: TheMerricat they can just steal the ROM's which yr cant do w/ food eg
TheMerricat: @GapFiller You can steal the code, but I have no idea if they'd have their own facilities to make their own chips. I mean that was part of the whole Covid issue with the chip scarcity is that there aren't many fab's in the world....
GapFiller: TheMerricat lotta chip fab in China to which they prob still have reasonable access
GapFiller: tho this is def gettign v offtopic
TheMerricat: @GapFiller LOL if they go to china, they probably could just purchase the already existing bootleg stuff too. :D
GapFiller: indeed
TheMerricat: As a reminder to chat, if you are interviewing for a job and they tell you "We are like a family". Please don't buy into that bullshit. Your tears fund your manager's bonus.
Bugberry: it makes sense from a rights perspective, still not great.
TheMerricat: @Izandai I fell down a wiki rabbit hole trying to find any but my recollection is that there have been a number of companies that were essentially 'nationalized' and then 'reprivatized' and took over their original company's position in the industry.
Bugberry: It's like the Arcane Secret Lair cards being credited to just Riot.
RockPusher: It does seem very weird considering how many rules exist in the movie industry around crediting
EvilBadman: @RockPusher That's cause they're unionized
Izandai: @Izandai Not at all surprised by that.
TheMerricat: @RockPusher This the IT industry needs to grow up and unionize already so this short of shit that has already been 'solved' in other industries won't be an issue any more.
GapFiller: TheMerricat phunny v tangential story: friend of mine at an old place of work was in the same management tier as those kinda interviewers and used to wind em up by walking past w/e somebody said 'we are like a family here' and responding w/ 'hows the divorce going'
TheMerricat: @GapFiller :D
SquareDotCube: And then you get into the Ubisoft level of credits, which is almost a movie length in itself
LordZarano: Excel for Win95 had credits, as an easter egg
RockPusher: Indeed - the movie industry being unionised is the reason - though I rather suspect the direction of near history will be trying to destroy those unions rather than expanding to other industries :(
Invitare: Guilds can go to war and have a popular MMO based on them
Izandai: @GapFiller demipyroLul
TheMerricat: So the 'legal' definition difference between a Guild and a Union is that a Union is for _employees_ and a Guild is for _independent contractors_ though it's understandable that a lot of people mistake a guild for being an 'overarching' thing.
LordZarano: The first easter egg in a video game was the devs adding credits, against their employers demands
Izandai: demipyroLul
Tiber727: I still don't understand what the resistance even is. It costs a company basically nothing to throw another name on the screen.
Izandai: Of course!
Izandai: "These are the rules, and here's an example of how it all looks!"
TheMerricat: @Tiber727 It's a fuck you to people who leave your company/power move against your employees.
RockPusher: Boomsness Manager
GapFiller: apparently the Pit Crew have a script writing credit on a forthcoming Crapshot
Izandai: In the days when there were no individual credits at all it was so other companies couldn't poach your designers.
Izandai: oof
Tiber727: @Tiber727 I got that in individual circumstances but maybe I thought there were more instances of not being credited than there are people with the position and personality to do that.
TheMerricat: @Tiber727 Never underestimate the capacity of the petty vindictiveness of middle management. I've yet to work in a company where there wasn't _someone_ who would be willing to pull this sort of shit against their employees.
ThorSokar: Academic theft is a HUGE problem, happens all the time
DaniellNaruta: Well, academia credits are complicated and broken in their own different way: but by the rules, your fried should have been on the paper
PixelArtDragon: And in academia, credit is a huge part of a university's decision to keep you around
SquareDotCube: Just... People in power need to be considerate, really.
GapFiller: but Beej the Producers dog is more important than the QA Team Kappa
Bruceski: My first (and only if you don't count reprints) academic paper I was just an intern doing some gruntwork and they still insisted I be added onto the thing. I didn't realize at the time what a big deal that was.
corpocracy: We were just talking about why archiving things is important. Inaccurate credits can make this stuff really frustrating
Izandai: I feel like that's not that hard? Just be like "This is my mom's name, look there she is in the actual credits."
EvilBadman: I will say, at a publishing company, the primary credits we give to devs for games is like a quick spreadsheet which is maintained on our side. Obviously other companies care less or more.
EvilBadman: mobygames is where I find game credits, but those're user reported I believe.
DaniellNaruta: @EvilBadman user reported, but you can submit other names
EvilBadman: Thanks for confirm :D
Izandai: Better than 100% new plastic.
EvilBadman: Yeah, once they figured they can do this, it should be the standard after
Izandai: If recycled plastic is good enough for LEGO...
sarsum33: re use plastick is in general of a lower quality.
SquareDotCube: Might as well make a controller out of bamboo
RockPusher: Best Case Scenario - this is a field test to see if they can make them all like this
LordZarano: An existing refurbished controller is 100% recycled though...
EvilBadman: 84.99 is MORE than
EvilBadman: they're 69.99
EvilBadman: usually*
DaniellNaruta: they don't usually come with the battery pack
EvilBadman: Oh right yeah, Daniel's right
Izandai: Oh that's interesting.
DaniellNaruta: so that's $20-25 us
Bugberry: frankenstein's controller
LathosTiran: recycling is all theater
DaniellNaruta: so they're also encouraging using rechargeable batteries, while still making it replaceable
EvilBadman: The mark up is for the recharge battery
Izandai: demipyroLul
Graham_LRR: I also want it, tbf
Izandai: ^
GapFiller: nalvHi hai G
CouldntPickAUsername: before you buy an expensive controller you might also want to ask 'how much longer is the switch gonna be the system'
EvilBadman: @CouldntPickAUsername for-ev-errrr
josh___something: There are a lot of games that could be described as a spreadsheet sim
TheMerricat: Oh I'm about this The company that got took over because they weren't paying attention to the stocks
TheMerricat: My phone sucks
Tiber727: @CouldntPickAUsername The Switch supports frigging Gamecube controllers. I don't predict Nintendo will abandon Pro controllers the next generation.
RockPusher: Work. But in Spaaaaaaaaace!!!!

Plasterboard: yes, all in-system
7gorobei: Gordon Gecko in space
TheMerricat: So the one part here that Paul hasn't mentioned is that they were able to do this vote because they had access to something like 10, 000 stock shares of the company and people are guessing theorizing that the only way they had this was because this was the ousted co-founder of the company who had been missing for forever
Ciijay: Ooo we're talking about guilds in games and buying in game stuff now
Ciijay: That's always wild to put a USD value to an account to me
Ciijay: and account selling
niccus: this just in, Sega Sammy is closing in on buying Rovio for $1 bil

DeM0nFiRe: this is exactly why people play EVE online, because of stuff like this happening lol
Ciijay: I do kind of find Eve Online for that sort of thing. There's some charm for like.. stealing and what not being part of the game?
Ciijay: I liked that for another game, but like.. You kind of agree to it
GapFiller: unlawful conversion: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversion_(law)
kusinohki: meows
Ciijay: I don't play Eve Online but just in concept it's very cool

LordZarano: @TheMilquetoastFool 230320 NOK
PixelArtDragon: Something about the end result of all large enough corporations to become either a securities company or a logistics company
Earthenone: the diference between eve and the real world is eve regulates the banks :P
Ciijay: There's a game called hackmud where it encourages players to attack and scam each other. And there are banks in there too that are player run. Players have to recognize the risk of a player run bank though

KeytarCat: @RockPusher That is a wonderful phrase
Izandai: Oh, Xillenial, not Zillenial. Okay.
Izandai: That sucks.
EvilBadman: Fans of Dusk started using the term, ironically, it's their fault
kusinohki: x gen to the xtreme!!
Plasterboard: @TheMerricat I actually am a part of a very small Corp (but have not played in many years). If I saw that in motion, I would move to secure as many valuables as possible before the turnover happened.
PixelArtDragon: So this is a "this is the game they would have made then"?
HasturTheYellow: Small correction, they *do* now make those Beakies again, for their "Retro" version of the game Horus Heresy

spurius: gen x maxed stealth and thats how we will win the gen-wars
TheMerricat: Games workshop has really turned around they used to defend their IP as if it was their chastity....
Invitare: its how LucasArts did Star Wars games
twitch_xeo: It has been a massive shift from their earlier stance on licensing out 40k tho IIRC
Plasterboard: That is exactly Games Workshop's strategy (shotgun approach to their IP)
kusinohki: warhammer - 40k licensing agreements...
DaniellNaruta: @spurius Gen-X doesn't even exist.....(fades out)
GapFiller: going down to the GW store means having to interact w/ GW
varbles: The quality level of the games is very... uneven though.
PMAvers: So basically very true to the source material, since GW games themselves are very uneven.
RockPusher: So everyone died in a fire?
Plasterboard: I sense a feedback loop incoming
Ciijay: A Sim of Sims?
plundypops: That is why 1 in every 10 WH game is playable because of the "shotgun" approach
TheMerricat: Iirc it's a bit more like Stardew valley than Sims
twitch_xeo: Reminds me of that... Doom? Bot experiment where someone left a server with only bots running for ages and they went peaceful or sth
kusinohki: what happened with the chatgpt hooked up to a furby?
RockPusher: You are a horrible goose…
GapFiller: !honk
EvilBadman: We fooled 25 NPCs into thinking they're PCs
RockPusher: !y
TheMerricat: @kusinohki hopefully someone threw it into the fires of hell, not for being a chatbot of course but for being a furby
Plasterboard: So, you're saying they're really bad at protecting secrets... :P
TheMerricat: This proves that they aren't actually intelligent yet otherwise it'd be a game of telephone..... Kappa
jundinator: HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys
kusinohki: did everyone show up late to the party?

TheMerricat: As a friendly reminder to all of the folks in the USian listening area it is absolutely illegal for a company to ban or retaliate against you for talking to your coworkers about your salary if your company has a policy that says you're not supposed to report them and they will get fined
Invitare: Beej says, to his boss Kappa
corpocracy: Oh, because they think it IS there own kingdom
Earthenone: they have distored desires in their hearts :P
Tiber727: @TheMerricat With exceptions for certain management roles.
Izandai: h
Izandai: hm

saucemaster5000: @Izandai you're gonna eat my eyes???
Izandai: Yes.
TemporallyAwry: If it wasn't their fault, it's sure their problem guyjudgeFp
Izandai: Sleep with one eye open tonight.
Izandai: (so it's easier for me to get at)
TheMerricat: Lol
Tiber727: Unfortunately, it is not illegal to lie to people that they don't have the rights that they absolutely do have.
saucemaster5000: (sigh) (gets monocle)
Izandai: Curses! The perfect defense!
GapFiller: Izandai nalvNote develop Bells Palsy tnite got it
TemporallyAwry: @Tiber727 "If the punishment is a fine, it's just the cost of doing business"
LordZarano: PMG video about Roblox and child labour continues to be relevant
TheMerricat: Minecraft server
TheMilquetoastFool: War Thunder!
LordZarano: Well that makes a change at least
7gorobei: war thunder had nothing to do with it
TheMerricat: They were arrested today if I recall correctly
josh___something: War thunder no!... Sorry, habit :p
GapFiller: TheMerricat iirc charged today even
Nydestroyer: this story just makes me think of all the smart low level military people who are probably just freely selling this info
Mangledpixel: makes sense as a technique to combat leaks: manufacture a bunch of variations on the leaks and leak those too, so then noone is sure what are the originals
josh___something: So this still could be traced back to war thunder
TheMerricat: @mangledpixel Plus if you do it intelligently enough the version that gets leaked to you tells you who's doing the leaking
Mangledpixel: TheMerricat yup

pn55: Yup, that person is likely going to be locked up for a long time.
BrowneePoints: I mean, that sounds like all the guardsmen I knew fresh out of high school
spurius: would you be surprised Fox new is defending him?
TheMerricat: @spurius I saw that mgt was defending him, I suppose I should have assumed that Fox would too
BrowneePoints: Oui Bowling
pn55: Good on them!
RockPusher: lrrAWESOME
Mangledpixel: heck yeah
pn55: @BrowneePoints Boooo! HypeLUL
twitch_xeo: @BrowneePoints LUL
KV1NN4: nyaww
BrowneePoints: My jokes are hilarious
YeetTheRich_: let's fucken go
accountmadeforants: :O
Izandai: demipyroLul
YeetTheRich_: hell yeah
josh___something: WOAH
Izandai: I love this.
Skeletonman1100: its the only wii bowling tourney I've seen
saucemaster5000: this is so lovely
Izandai: 96 years old. Wow.
pn55: That's awesome honestly
Izandai: That record's gonna stand a looooong time.
kusinohki: I don't remember that big of a crowd when pro bowling was televised...
Izandai: I loved Wii Boxing back in the day.
YeetTheRich_: watching wii speedrunners is wild
DeM0nFiRe: I think with the Wiimotion plus accessory / the later generation of remotes that had it built in, it was actually pretty accurate tracking. Twisting your wrist slightly definitely affects the bowling
accountmadeforants: The original Wiimote only had an accelerometer and was kinda shit yeah
accountmadeforants: (Also did you know that's not the official name? It's just Wii Remote)
spurius: buying a wii for your children is pretty standard :)
RockPusher: Still, arguably the Wii is the reason we have nice cheap micromechanical accelerometers in everything now :D
accountmadeforants: 2006
v_nome: The last PS2 game was published way later than you might expect for similar reasons
RockPusher: I'm still sad we never got a good cricket game with the Wii gyro attachment
accountmadeforants: Yeah, the Wiimote had the huge advantage of "just point at your TV to select a thing" like every old person has always wanted to do.
SquareDotCube: I make fun of Just Dance because it requires a console :D
Izandai: demipyroLul
Izandai: Rocket arm

Bruceski: I want to rub myself on that entire game like a cat in a new house.
PMAvers: More excited about the Splatfest
Izandai: Actually yeah the tents are a big deal.
IzlanntheLion: Battle Bots
Izandai: This isn't a joke, I'm very excited to see how the people of Hyrule have started to rebuild.
saucemaster5000: @BrowneePoints I'll admit I gave a chris pratt mario sigh at that, But I'm glad to know the voice actor everyone loves... keeps... getting... everything
SquareDotCube: A wobbly arm
EvilBadman: Link built a Series X
DaniellNaruta: Minecraft Hyrule
SquareDotCube: Shield Sword
BrowneePoints: @saucemaster5000 it's because he's good at his job and is a trained VA
Izandai: Honestly I kinda wish I didn't watch the trailer. They showed off too much.
kusinohki: I haven't watched the new TotK trailer yet. heard it "reveals too much" and part of me wants to avoid it...
BrowneePoints: He also played the same role in There Will Be Brawl
SquareDotCube: Garrys Mod, but Zelda
saucemaster5000: that's the thing -- Can't fault Mercer, he is really good
Izandai: All Will Be Brawl
Mai_Andra: I'm just waiting for FFXVI... Diablo 4 can hold me off a bit, but even that is still two months away... >.>
