laundreydhull: Sun Tzu said that, I'd say he knows a little more about fighting than you do pal, because he invented it.
mtvcdm: Hunter, what would you say is your biggest weakness at this company?
DarkAbyssKeeper: What's our greatest strength? <standing, camera at crotch height>
laundreydhull: & he perfected it so that no living name could best him in the ring of honor!!

DarkAbyssKeeper: You've grown into it.
TehAmelie: i have not paid attention, but isn't Lilith the big bad boss of this story?
TheMerricat: And our mom
TXC2: TehAmelie yes, she's also our mom
TehAmelie: i picked up on that much
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: also, she looks more demon-y irl
DarkAbyssKeeper: Mooom, I have existentialism!
Lazarus2511: cute lil hellhound
DarkAbyssKeeper: Peter you work with journalists. You should be aware of bias.
TehAmelie: can you really trust Peter to not have some residual brainwashing from the venom symbiote?
niccus: it's not "bias" when you're "married"
DarkAbyssKeeper: Peter and Eddie are married? I missed that comic.
TehAmelie: i like that he ended that sentence with tomah-to
TXC2: the orb's over 18, it smoke if it wants

TXC2: It's Cori, with an I
Asoxa: I know
TXC2: Rourke9 it's Eddie's wife right? Kappa
Asoxa: It's a pronounciation thing
Rourke9: @txc2 XD that would be extremely Peter of him. But I meant Flash
Asoxa: Didn't me
TehAmelie: Y is such a pointless letter
Asoxa: So is æøå
mtvcdm: Morbin' time?
Asoxa: I still use them all the time..
Asoxa: Being Danish and all
DarkAbyssKeeper: I favored levelling magik and spidey, because portals and environmental stuff.
Rourke9: Morb is in this game??? I missed too much
TXC2: Rourke9 he's DLC
Asoxa: Right... Have fun folks ^^
TheAwkes: DownLoadableMorb-tent
TXC2: so long Asoxa stay safe
TehAmelie: i mean, we could replace Y with some vowels that have sounds that aren't just I
Rourke9: I like this game’s Peter
DarkAbyssKeeper: I refuse to comment on your idiocy, have some stuff.
Rourke9: I want sourdough though. Yummy
Rourke9: He’s morbin

Rourke9: Well then
DarkAbyssKeeper: Deadpool describing his sex life.
ChrisMackGames: I mean... not wrong. Deadpool is the king of weird
TehAmelie: i think i get what the game is going for with all these form-fitting sweaters, it's like comic book art where the hero "uniforms" are just them naked with different color "spandex". but i dislike it
Azralorne: I agree with Deadpool
TehAmelie: especially Carol i think deserves some good clothes
mtvcdm: Then best of 7!
Rourke9: Carol is letmesoloher
mtvcdm: Championship of the universe!
TehAmelie: did twitch have a hickup for anyone else just now?
TXC2: TehAmelie seems fine here
DarkAbyssKeeper: Oh hey... its my relation to every skill.
TXC2: the yutes!
mtvcdm: Don't you go talking smack about my dropsy
TehAmelie: just me then. good news for the stream
TehAmelie: ooh, can we be bikers?
TehAmelie: a biker
DarkAbyssKeeper: Leather jammies.
TXC2: far too normal looking for us
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: idk, with the shades? seems quite biker-y
TehAmelie: dual wielding electric katanas is just overkill, and that's coming from Raiden in Metal Gear Rising
mtvcdm: That got too Space Jam 2 for me
TXC2: those are some TIGHT pants on robbie
ChrisMackGames: This mission was a pain.
TehAmelie: hmm does anyone ever comment on the fact Steve and Stephen have the same name?
TheAwkes: Hey, someone circle the calendar, Spidey had an idea!
TehAmelie: it's probably good that they go by Steve and Stephen, respectively
TXC2: morb and spidy have wings
ChrisMackGames: Go go Morbin Ranger
DarkAbyssKeeper: Stephen Rogers and Steve Strange. Alternate universe.
TehAmelie: "Stephen" "DOCTOR Strange, please"
mtvcdm: Before we do this mission, here, emo kids meeting!
TXC2: "Mr Stephen" "DR Stephen?" "um, no"
TXC2: !plan
LRRbot: Translator's note: Plan means Keikaku.
mtvcdm: No time to explain!
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: Plan: hit everybody
TehAmelie: Bruce step away from the green light
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: the evil guys got Banner?
BusTed: tqsNom
niccus: the time-honored tradition of "run away"
TXC2: kaliuniqueusernamesaredum yeap
TotallyNotaBeholder: Loving how that bell clapper was moving
mtvcdm: You absolute bellend
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: church bells are not cheap, eddie
PharaohBender27: This entire game has such "written by Joss Whedon" vibes
BusTed: Haha.
TXC2: repair how?
DarkAbyssKeeper: How does Spiderman fix anything?
NightValien28: TXC2 duct tape
A_Dub888: Also, where'd the Hydra goons come from
ChrisMackGames: Zinger time!
TehAmelie: in the original Venom story, they "killed" the symbiote just with church bells. good to remember for the level of sound that bothers it
pyrehand: that's not the relationship between frequency and resonant cavity size
mtvcdm: 10 heroism to progress the mission.... oh boy this is gonna be a thing
niccus: -3 for each time you take the time to down venom
ChrisMackGames: Nawwwww, itt'l be fine.
TheAwkes: 60 newsprint damage.
ChrisMackGames: Eat this Venom!
TXC2: hot off the press!
NojhLivic: "work with me here"
TheAwkes: o7
TXC2: oh no!
PharaohBender27: NotLikeThis
ShroomPoof: uh ooooooohhhhhh
TXC2: poo butts
A_Dub888: benginO7
pyrehand: NOOOO
NojhLivic: I blame Deadpool
Rourke9: O no
coachNelly: 😢
TheAwkes: A shipping error. The character relationships were too strong!
Azralorne: OH NO
TehAmelie: gaame
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
mtvcdm: The Morb was too powerful
LordZarano: MidnightSuns-Win64-Shipping
ChrisMackGames: It should save at the end of the turn. I had a lot of issues with the game crashing in some of the Venom fights too for some reason.
TehAmelie: kind of funny, it breaks just like the XCom games do
TehAmelie: before it lets you know that it's struggling
TXC2: and we're back
TehAmelie: we didn't lose a lot of turns i hope
mtvcdm: We were early into the fight so
TehAmelie: deja vu all up in this b
TehAmelie: out of curiosity, does the game tell you if it uses the same seeded hit percentages kind of metagame as XCom, or doesn't?
mtvcdm: That was not the ideal set of free cards
ChrisMackGames: Yeah, you shouldn't really lose anything progress wise. Not sure why Venom taking his turns as an enemy sometimes makes the game go 💥
mtvcdm: !holes
LRRbot: Did somebody mention classic young-adult action-adventure movie Holes??
kaliuniqueusernamesaredum: rip morb
TehAmelie: Morbin time is. . .over
DarkAbyssKeeper: I will eat your stash.
ChrisMackGames: How did Venom know about our stash?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Morbius using a sonic attack but not bothering to try and tune it. Shame.
TehAmelie: the symbiote knows pretty much everything Peter has ever known at the time of their separation. lucky for him it doesn't exactly tell its host straight
pyrehand: @TehAmelie The game doesn't use random hit chance, all abilities are guaranteed to land and damage values are fixed. There is a crit chance mechanic on card draw. I'm not sure what algorithm they use for random numbers on that.
TehAmelie: ah
BlackIsis: are we holding out for a hero...ism?
TehAmelie: that warp-into-a-dude-and-punch move reminds me of Dark
TehAmelie: come to think, Morbius may well be a Dark vampire
TXC2: man I wonder what Jacob thinks of the Dark ?
TehAmelie: given Jacob's enthusiasm for the children of the night, i kind of really hope he has never heard of Dark
TXC2: TehAmelie indeed
DarkAbyssKeeper: Upgraded Chain strike is great.
DarkAbyssKeeper: "almost"
TehAmelie: "almost" graceful? dang lady, this is Spider-Man
DarkAbyssKeeper: You have 37 whole health.
BlackIsis: he really doesn't like Morbius
mtvcdm: "repair"
TehAmelie: just like the Liberty Bell, right? cracked when it was made
ChrisMackGames: Knockout bell from Spidey
A_Dub888: Peter "All According to Keikaku" Parker
TXC2: leather PJs would get so damn hot :p
DarkAbyssKeeper: Do not ask Peter what he's gonna do with that footage.
EvilBadman: Spidey says "Clip it, that's the ticket!"
cuttlefishman: which of these marvel characters do you think eats healthiest
cuttlefishman: who is getting the salad
TehAmelie: definitely not Spidey
TXC2: cuttlefishman Magik?
cuttlefishman: maybe this venom likes kale
ChrisMackGames: Caretaker plays a lot of Injustice LUL
TehAmelie: he's broke and always working. just constantly ramming McDonalds $1 burgers down his neck
niccus: venom literally eats either brains or chocolates, this pile of goop is full of cholesterol
queercrafting_chonk: Long!
ChrisMackGames: Long
TehAmelie: Duck Game
ghyllnox: Long~
cuttlefishman: what are we playing
Rourke9: Yay story time!!
cuttlefishman: duck western... fighting game?
TehAmelie: yep. clearly a fictional version of Duck Game
DarkAbyssKeeper: Peter does seem like the "talk a stranger through a roid rage" type.
Rourke9: That’s so nice of Peter! Love that guy
queercrafting_chonk: Awww
TXC2: pretty sure you can just buy that IN Salem IRL :p
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
cuttlefishman: save for maximus
Gaz_L: only slightly shaded knowledge
pyrehand: Dark magic or aggressive strategies are generally dark
pyrehand: even if they're also good
TheAwkes: Perfect line for the new 'fit.
EricTheOrange: we're trying to out leather blade
Gaz_L: @TXC2 realtalk: it's a great scene, but I hate how many dudebros miss that Walter White is being a pathetic dick in that scene, intimidating his wife to feel powerful because he's in over his head
TXC2: Gaz_L oh indeed, he's trying to convince himself more then anyone else that's he in charge
EricTheOrange: slime suit
Gaz_L: it's up there with Kylo Ren's 'Kill the past' line where the text literally tells you the character is wrong and yet so many people just.. don't get it
EricTheOrange: Actually kind of makes me think of the fusion suit in metroid fusion.
pyrehand: Fortify is great
ChrisMackGames: It was actually the outfit I used for a while. I liked the look of it.
TehAmelie: hm i was gonna rewatch American Psycho but in the genre of stories about bad men, maybe i could watch Breaking Bad instead?
Gaz_L: BB and BCS are both very good
TXC2: I found breaking Bad far to slow to get into, but YMMV
pyrehand: @ChrisMackGames I'd describe it as being very Spawn
DarkAbyssKeeper: B'laddy
TehAmelie: "spades" is a kind of charged word you know. . .
Rourke9: Good quip
TehAmelie: the term "quick kick" has too many K sounds. it needs redesign
TehAmelie: swift boot?
TXC2: fast leg punch
TehAmelie: ooh
EricTheOrange: the T.H.R.E.A.T. room. the off Brand danger room. The X-men are very letigious.
Gaz_L: as long as they die, yup
ChrisMackGames: As long as they aren't the highest level, everyone can benefit from the Threat Room. voumooNodders
Rourke9: Vibes
TheMerricat: So chat, I've only been following the game for Cori's commentary and chat. I haven't paid that much attention to the game play, is this one of those games where leveling up makes you 'more powerful' so that you take out more mooks in one blow/take them out faster. Or is this one of those games where they scale the level of the mooks so that you essentially are treading water and thus your level up just means you get bigger mooks?
TehAmelie: good question
GapFiller: TheMerricat the mooks havent gotten any larger Kappa
pyrehand: @TheMerricat bit of column a bit of column b. The mooks don't scale naturally but leveling does unlock higher difficulties where the mooks are beefier but you level even faster.
TehAmelie: the XCom tradition is having the enemies get more powerful over time and daring you to keep up, but who knows with this
pyrehand: There are much harder enemies in later levels but that's tied to story progress not strictly level.
TXC2: yeah, Cori hasn't exactly been grinding this game, so we're not as powerful as we could be, but cori's doing fine
ShroomPoof: I'm not very far into the game, but as far as I know a higher level gives you rarer cards/cosmetics/items
TehAmelie: the Deadpool movies are both great by the way, just gonna put that out
TXC2: indeed they are
Gaz_L: i'm glad they're bringing Morena Baccarin back for the third one
RuiFaleiro: There is level-based enemy scaling. ex: in my threat room, if i go in at 25, the mooks' hp tiers are 1/~180/~360. my feed's a little blurry but for her it seems to be 1/~90/~180?
TehAmelie: always a pleasure to see her
Gaz_L: this mode is good for letting you see how each character's gimmick/toolkit works at their best
pyrehand: I'm not sure in general or just for the threat room as it's for training. I may be misremembering I haven't played it since launch week
TXC2: "it's not you, it's me...whose shooting you"
TXC2: *who's
Gaz_L: exactly 125
TXC2: !events
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out https://loadingreadyrun.com/live for an interactive schedule, or http://lrr.cc/schedule for a Google Calendar version.
NojhLivic: Do you think they enemies are like "will his turn every end??"
NojhLivic: Neat
TXC2: oh hey 3 stars
Gaz_L: it's more for levelling heroes you haven't been using as much
mercano82: You do get to keep the level ups
TehAmelie: i'm not sure wearing shades indoors help when your eyes are effulgent like two pits of hell
NojhLivic: "afraid? ridiculous!"
ChrisMackGames: Oh my
TXC2: yeap, we're not turning evil like our mom at all Kappa
ChrisMackGames: Oh, those were sunglasses. Thought the shine off the glasses were your eyes glowing.
TehAmelie: Clint Eastwood: the movie
Gaz_L: it's The Room
Rourke9: Oh, she also does Hey, Check It Out!
BlackIsis: I love to talk about a movie without ever mentioning the name of said movie.
TXC2: no that's what shlock is Nico
mercano82: Hunter is an occult classic
Gaz_L: Every time I think of the term 'camp' I just think about John Waters describing it in The Simpsons
pyrehand: did the stream just freeze?
TXC2: sure did
NojhLivic: Yeah my stream froze
Gaz_L: ye
Zaghrog: yeah
BlackIsis: i was just going to ask
mercano82: Not just me, then
TehAmelie: to be fair, when you are watching a movie with a friend or discussing it after, saying the name of it is kind of like when they say it in the movie
TXC2: And we're back
NojhLivic: Ooh its back
Gaz_L: we back
pyrehand: right in time for water prepare to hydrate!
NojhLivic: A vampire, a half-vampire, and a hunter. How 90s can you get?
TehAmelie: Homer Simpson standing up and yelling "they said the name of the thing! it's over now, it's done"
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
TehAmelie: the funniest movie going experience i have had this century must be when i saw Fury Road, and the moment when the credits rolled some very sarcastic voice yelled "feminst popaganda!"
TheMerricat: So I can't tell if it's my internet or the stream went down... testing. One Two Three....
TehAmelie: how we laughed. so much more than we cried at the end of 12 Years a Slave
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Apparently multiple people experienced a hiccup
TXC2: TheMerricat the stream did go down just before the break
TehAmelie: sincerely, i did not get that close to crying in public even at my mom's funeral
TXC2: I haven't cried in over 20 years :p
TehAmelie: have you read the comic book Preacher? :3
TXC2: I have not
PharaohBender27: I cried several days ago. It's actually a great stress reliever.
TXC2: and we're back
TehAmelie: it's about a man learning to cry, basically. i'd recommend it
PharaohBender27: escher3THUMBSUP
TehAmelie: oh hi Cori
LurkerSpine: help I'm trapped in the Marvel equivalent of the Phantom Zone
TXC2: refresh for stream!
DarkAbyssKeeper: Instruction unclear: streaming fresh hearings
niccus: i wonder what the freeze frame looks
pyrehand: I'm told that swooping is bad
LurkerSpine: I feel like all of these people could've run away
Mollylele: must have gotten near their nests & they swooped you. bird rules
TXC2: Hello Mollylele welcome
DarkAbyssKeeper: "sometimes"?
RuiFaleiro: blade does also use a gun sometimes
TXC2: he uses them a lot in the movies :p
