Juliamon: Info didn't change
SpacePotato01: The Cylinder could be considered parkour. (With *crushing* encouragement.)
kumatsu: (going live tweet sends to Cameron's stream)
Juliamon: some days you just can't win
LoadingReadyRun: going back to bed
CAKHost: A Day is happening to us all

CAKHost: I'm still waiting for a package that keeps getting pushed back. :c
ghyllnox: R U ok
saucemaster5000: I'm alright. 6/10

ghyllnox: Oh come on Twitch, you just showed me pre rolls
PixelArtDragon: They had me in the first half, not gonna lie
noSmokeFire: simulate talking by roasting Ye
Darleysam: You ever seen a Matt Wiggins stream? The game is optional
ghyllnox: This is a talking stream, it's in the name
: Let's Nope usually takes like 20-30 minutes to get into it.
: I'm dying....
saucemaster5000: regurgitates food for the young
Sarah_Serinde: I mean, relatable
drcthulu: Ian is an odd duck
ghyllnox: Co play!
KV1NN4: I dunno, give me enough food...
PixelArtDragon: Doing own thing, together
ghyllnox: It's a thing!!!
Sarah_Serinde: Sometimes we show each other something that we were looking at
saucemaster5000: the other mcdonalds customers eating next to you -- friends
ghyllnox: And occasionally share memes from my phone
juneblue58: Doing different things together is totally legit friendship.
TheMerricat: A relationship is being in a room with someone and not feeling as if you actually have to entertain them. That you BOTH can just "be" and not need to do anything.
emonotony: I can keep up a conversation well enough for half a dozen people.
KarnakGWJ: "I like existing with you"

TheOvenBird: I am notifying Loading Ready Run I have subscribed for another month.

Sarah_Serinde: Yeahhhhh yeah it sure is
ghyllnox: College was a lot of having intense philosophical conversations and then doing homework for hours
saucemaster5000: Excited for 3-6 months from now when suddenly everything sucks more and we can't figure out why
ghyllnox: How about instead of writing something, you just fix something bad?
KarnakGWJ: How about we punch you up?
TheMerricat: My understanding is that 90% of the reason for the strike was the same as the last time, Netflix didn't want to come to the table over residuals....
saucemaster5000: Netflix didn't even want to admit to the writers how many people watched their shows!
KV1NN4: some magazine or newspaper printed an interview with a former race-car driver (I think)...... but it was written by an AI. Nobody even went to talk tot he man witht he brain injury
Sarah_Serinde: Yeah if you're not only not in a room/on a call with someone, but can't even talk to them in any way...that kind of thing is hard enough over text
Sarah_Serinde: With AI there isn't even intent, never mind trying to figure out a person's intent in unclear writing
saucemaster5000: oof Quantum of Solace was rough
: i really like that film
PixelArtDragon: Oh god, was QoS baaaaaaad
KarnakGWJ: Was that the Javier Bardem one?
KarnakGWJ: I can't remember
plundypops: Casino royale was so goooood
PixelArtDragon: Especially with Skyfall going back to great
emonotony: Having intent in writing is overrated. If you ever try to analyze my meaning I will frustrate you into a rage.
saucemaster5000: Quantum is almost an hour shorter and it feels an hour longer
: They are lucky Matt and Graham aren't in town to bust down the door and get after them for taking their bit.
emonotony: And I spend hours and hours and hours on deliberating on exact word choices, just to make the meaning vague in a way where it's hard to misread as a clear statement.
TeiranDragon: There's so many shows which just died cause of the last strike. It's gonna happen again.
TheMerricat: Hearing Moore explain what they originally intended the ending for BSG be before the strike hit made me sad
Lord_Hosk: THe final episode almost nailed it for me... but then flopped it so hard at just a few points
beowuuf: i will tell you who you are.... at the end of the next episode, except not...
saucemaster5000: The last bond movie villain talked a lot and didn't say anything too
saucemaster5000: I swear Rami Malek was improving
saucemaster5000: er improv-ing
KV1NN4: wqsn't she terrified and unhinged by that point?
beowuuf: @TheMerricat don't recall what that was, and i listened to the podcasts he released at the time. what was it?
Cptasparagus: I went to one in boy scouts
: @TheMerricat https://gizmodo.com/ron-moore-throws-out-another-alternate-bsg-ending-5191097 - TLDR version - "the original plan was to have Galactica crash on earth in the finale. Most everyone would survive, but the ship is obviously never going to fly again. Over the centuries, the ship is buried by nature and becomes one of those mysterious mounds in Central America, some of which are actually buried pyramids. Eventually the humans of today find the ship buried in the dirt."
LordZarano: You can write with an ai but it requires a *lot* of back and forth and frankly requires *more* work, expertise, and creative input to bend it into producing anything worthwhile reading
KV1NN4: also glad I finished watching Actual Season 1 (3) of Picard
Angnor33: I've been on a couple, including a submarine. They're fun, but one in a day is a lot.
Lord_Hosk: and then they missed the lost era... because it wasn't on the TV show
electric_claire: The starfleet ships are probably better as an event space than your average US naval ship though
ZuNy77: to be fiar i WOULD love to see voyager on the inside once it got back
saucemaster5000: A cookie? Wait, TWO cookies?
emonotony: Does anyone deserve anything, in the end? Philosophy for Pinkertons was the worst class.
beowuuf: @TheMerricat cheers!
PixelArtDragon: @LordZarano I like the way Ted Chiang put it- while you can get a first draft very easily with AI, the process of making your first draft helps you formulate your ideas in a way that is easier to iterate on than when something else writes it for you
juneblue58: I saw Cylinder and ngl, made me think of playing the point-and-click Rama game when I was a kid.
Lord_Hosk: The big problem with the Star Fleet Fleet museum as I see it is... They have HOLODECKS. Every ship, starbase, and large house can be a fleet museum
noSmokeFire: maybe the planet is an O'Neil Cylinder. Cylinders all the way down.
Red_Dead_Monkey: @Lord_Hosk YEP
emonotony: Is this just a Planescape fanfic?
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a deeper look at the world of video games. Game: The Eternal Cylinder) at Tue 01:30 PM PDT (22m ago).
electric_claire: Cylinder only goes halfway across?
juneblue58: Ah, so we're playing Spore but significantly better made.
VoyRising: These are some delightful snoots
PixelArtDragon: @juneblue58 I still long for the Spore that was demonstrated at E3 in 2006. I remember that it was *weird* that an 18 minute video existed on YouTube
TheMerricat: @juneblue58 Notably Spore _wasn't_ a victim of a writers strike. It was ruined all on it's own...
: They're coming out of it's head. Is that the mind virus we've heard so much about lately?
Invitare: does anything *like* parasites by nature?
emonotony: @Invitare Things eating them?
ZuNy77: oh no we died
GDwarble: @Invitare People who eat cheese?
noSmokeFire: guess I'll die
Tobbns: @Invitare Parasites do like themselves i guess
LRRbot: Chat? Engaging in mimicry?
LordZarano: RIP Chat
Angnor33: The proper parasite can make you like them, with the right combination of chemicals...

emonotony: @Angnor33 From a species point of view babies are vital, but from an individual's point of view...
Invitare: Stop right there criminal scum!
noSmokeFire: easy come easy go
Nemosaur: Is this the new Qbert game?
Creideiki_SE: We already have Chat, so if we call the next one ChatGPT, maybe we won't feel so bad when it gets stepped on.
fiftymcnasty: Results oriented thinking
drcthulu: dealers choice
A_Dub888: porque no los dos?
PixelArtDragon: I wonder how far you can go along the cylinder
emonotony: Learning a lesson is a great way to justify making a mistake.
TheMerricat: This is one of those, you can't go faster than the lighting deals, it lasts the full area IIRC
nalha: this looks like a Watch+Play game
TheMerricat: @nalha one of the good ones.
nalha: like Beautycopter, that game was amazing
juneblue58: That game was absolutely wild.
Sarah_Serinde: I would be very here for that
emonotony: Shadow of the Katamari, where you got to climb the clump and send the Prince back to space before they finish destroying the level.
TheMerricat: Look chat, sometimes people take drugs and actually make something nice....
Sarah_Serinde: Also another Cori-led W+P would be rad
FlyboyZeb: This is very Seussian
Sarah_Serinde: People make weird things without being on drugs. Being on drugs makes it harder to make things
GDwarble: That matches my experience with other ACE team games, such as Rock of Ages and Zeno Clash: They have unique ideas and really strong art direction, but the games still kinda struggle
emonotony: Being on amphetamines makes it vastly easier to make things.
emonotony: This does not apply to everyone ask your doctor.
: Oh, I was not aware we were cylindering again this week!
A_Dub888: The Trebhaum obtained special eye
GDwarble: This definitely feels like the most...complete, I guess, ACE Team game, and I've definitely been meaning to check it out
TheMerricat: so chat, what are the odds that the game was coded to shove that creature in our face vs just letting us randomly find it?
Deatheire: anyone know the best place to get support for an order put on the store?
TheMerricat: @Deatheire if you mean the LRR store, I believe info@loadingreadyrun...
Mazrae: This game kind of reminds me of Sporr
Deatheire: @Deatheire Yea, i was talking about the lrr store
Sarah_Serinde: @Deatheire No, you can email the store directly, there's an email on the store site and iirc it should be the same email address that you got your order confirmation from
GDwarble: @Mazrae It does feel kinda No Man's Sky meets Spore
emonotony: I hope you can eventually evolve fists and it gives you retro gameplay.
Deatheire: @Sarah_Serinde Thanks, I wasn't able to find it
TheMerricat: Was that 'cage' plant holding a danylion?
Sarah_Serinde: @Deatheire Yeah it's not super obvious, but there are links at the bottom like the policies link that have useful info
emonotony: "You look interesting but there's no way to you." Ah, another joke about an ex.
noSmokeFire: called shot: trebum created the cylinder, which is why they're the only ones who can pause it
TheMerricat: MOM! The plant is flashing me!
Boopity: Oh no, that creature has the concept of human embarrassment
v_nome: Dang. Murdered it good
emonotony: The Father-Mother?
Boopity: They couldn't afford engineers to design that platform
SquareDotCube: time to succ
Creideiki_SE: Maybe you just need something to launch you higher. A trebhum-chet, if you will.

Boopity: This is the worst ferris wheel I've been on
Boopity: That's just my brain on a daily basis
HadesLeprechaun: does the compendium tab tell you more about the creatures you analyze with special eyes?
emonotony: My brain also cannot reach a hive mind to tell me what I'm supposed to do
SquareDotCube: space avocado
rentar42: knowing nothing else of this game, I have to ask: why is their trunk (?) on fire?
SnackPak_: classic twitter
Juliamon: We ingested something that gave us a fire evo
rentar42: the voice acting has a very peculiar and beautiful enunciation.
innerbeard: I just tuned in, and I am either too high for, or not high enough for this game.
Rourke9: thanks ghost
CryptiEX: What have they encountered so far?
Rourke9: what did we find on the other side of the cylinder again? some weird vision?
niccus: we entered math
Rourke9: we learned about other places this happened to iirc?
SquareDotCube: go back into the cave?
bytecaster: This game is just hydration propaganda.
TheMerricat: So didn't the elder say that if we were wondering around without a clue we're supposed to look to the sky to find the sky dragon / whatever
Rourke9: oh right, the sky
noSmokeFire: @TheMerricat isn't that what we've already been doing? following the sky danglies to points of interest?
emonotony: You'd think that UV-C immunity would do something.
bytecaster: Headaches suck
Rourke9: oh no! i hope you feel better soon with rest
: Headaches suck and bright lights and screens sure don't help. It's annoyingly inconvenient how much they don't help
emonotony: Maybe it's a game about nothing. They're the fashion these days.
Rourke9: yea, i agree
KV1NN4: repopulating the planet and maybe remembering the sourc eof the memories/past disaster?
emonotony: The game sounds like an apt metaphor for evolution and life.
Rourke9: but what is it saying about those things?
KarnakGWJ: I think the game slowly reveals more, but I eventually stopped play as well.
noSmokeFire: I guess the cylinder has a sort of Red Queens Race element, but I don't see how that relates to the hive mind magic evolution
bytecaster: Not even to chat2?
emonotony: More it's commentary on life itself rather than the story making sense. Knowing ACE Team it could well be intentional, but it doesn't make the game compelling.
Sarah_Serinde: And they can come back fairly trivially too
Boopity: "I don't know why my stomach matters." - Coriander Dickinson, 2023
spiffinn: is there a multiplayer mode? it feels like there could be
juneblue58: I feel it'd be stronger as a multiplayer game; kinda like Journey.
Creideiki_SE: Has the game even acknowledged that the player controls when the cylinder moves, basically making you Death, Destroyer of Worlds?
Rourke9: its pretty prescriptive
juneblue58: There's a good game here, but perhaps it needs another pass to flesh some things out more.
Sarah_Serinde: Yeah I enjoy the narrator
: thanks for stream!
emonotony: @juneblue58 The ways where the decisions work for tone but not for gameplay could be considered for a few essays.
elkae: Thank you for the stream and the thoughts ✨
emonotony: @juneblue58 They're even stating out that the controllable characters are at a loss, and it
elkae: So many strim
emonotony: @juneblue58 it's fairly good about making things feel that way too.
drcthulu: draft blue red
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Let's Nope (Ben and Adam play horror games until they find the key that will bring them true happiness. This week that search continues, IN SPACE! Game: Dead Space) at Tue 05:00 PM PDT (2:10 from now).
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 2:50 PM
Juliamon: Cori wasn't feeling well so TS ended early
emonotony: (Also, I checked, it IS intentional. You're just surviving, not exactly clear on what you're doing.)
