beowuuf: sergeHi
Juliamon: The stream? No
LoadingReadyRun: No, I meant the chat
Juliamon: it's Schroedinger's chat, the answer is yes and no.
LoadingReadyRun: No one talked for a while and I got scared
beowuuf: we were all just quietly staring at the title waiting for it to change :p
Juliamon: I was watching kittens
beowuuf: i'm listening/watching an album made in a day. i mean..one of the albums made in a day (there are multiple)
rubikdarkwill: I only just arrived
beowuuf: sergeHi
RockPusher: !search for treasure
LRRbot: You find: a Wandering Monster!
RockPusher adopts the wandering monster which appears to have been a kitten
TheMerricat: Well this is annoying. I just noticed that my computer's clock was off by over ten minutes... if my phone hadn't gone off I would still be messing around thinking I had another 15 min before the stream....
Angreed66: How does a computer get offset by 10 minutes?
Juliamon: It just happens sometimes
Angreed66: Aren't most synced with the atomic clock?
Earthenone: magnets?
beowuuf: \[T]/ praise the phone
Juliamon: My last laptop had issues with syncing and had to be manually synced once a month
TheMerricat: @Angreed66 That's my question, esp since it's set to auto sync with the 'normal' time server and claimed the last successful sync was yesterday
TehAmelie: some server that uploads a webcomic i follow has slipped by 10 minutes like a year ago and keeps getting worse. . .
beowuuf: it's not constant, windows in the background keeps updating itself. My old desktop keeps drifting between checks and i have to manually tell it if i want to do some minecraft lan stuff
RockPusher: Clock drift happens - as does the occasional wrong time from a time server pool - but it is rare

Juliamon: Azralorne Saving it for tomorrow!
kusinohki: meows
beowuuf: beej will play it for us tomorrow so we have free time :p
Azralorne: @juliamon lol fair enough
kusinohki: taking a zelda break so I can elliptical run while watching chill point... (ie, activating lurk mode)
saucemaster5000: Taking a zelda break for lunch myself
Azralorne: Lol I'm at the end of my Zelda lunch break
laundreydhull: Say, any chance a segment/way bringing up the ongoing WGA advocacy in Check/Chill: Point?
RockPusher: I'm fairly sure Zelda isn't available on the platform I game on :D I do hope people are having fun with it though
memnus: I just finished Checkpoint and I will never have better LRR-related timing in my life
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Heather, Beej and Paul and chat about the week's gaming news. http://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun 📷 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Fv9LMjUaAAsyDyv.jpg || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1657129168461783041
Azralorne: It's so good rockpusher! I am constantly cackling like a wild person
Juliamon: laundreydhull Does it affect game writers?
beowuuf: wait, heather and beej are on? Kappa
laundreydhull: @Juliamon I don't... know.
RockPusher: Azralorne lrrAWESOME
saucemaster5000: I haven't played a switch in many years, need a pro controller -- the Borrowers would think these things are too small
Juliamon: Because this is specificaly gaming news, not general news
Azralorne: I don't believe game writers are in the WGA stuff
CanPlayGames: !card Island
LRRbot: Island | Basic Land — Island |
beowuuf: delayed movie/tv stuff might affect gaming tie-ins?
TheMerricat: @Azralorne Acccutually.... "The WGAW offers a simple, one-page Interactive Program Contract (IPC) that covers writing for videogames."
Azralorne: Oh wow
Azralorne: Good to know and also fuck
Juliamon: Well, if there's any news relevant to that, then sure, they could talk about it
laundreydhull: I mean, I am starting to write... "things" & don't mind being informed on the sideline.

ANeMzero: glad to see Heather and Beej have their emotional support Zeldas to help them get through the show.
TheMerricat: According to the pixel in coordinates 2013,4023 of the preview picture being color #ff32aU - I'm betting this game won't be in black and white.
ButButTheJesus: @TheMerricat spoilers!
matthaus_c: ah, the strategy I used in written tests
LordZarano: @TheMerricat Ooh that's a high rez picture!
saucemaster5000: Oh god, how did Zaslav come into video game news?
Juliamon: Because Warner
saucemaster5000: ah
DoodlestheGreat: He _is_ the villain from UHF.
CaptainSpam: Good ol' RJ Fletcher.
TheMerricat: @saucemaster5000 He was doing the grandpa thing of being completely out of touch about video games and trying to hype them up
saucemaster5000: @saucemaster5000 fun
DoodlestheGreat: Hogfarts Linguini.
Juliamon: That was the most unhinged buzzwords quote I've seen in awhile
Earthenone: pomg?
ANeMzero: No one ever considered immersion in video games before. Please ignore the entire genre of "immersive sims"
CodeIndigo: much zeld
CodeIndigo: very link
CodeIndigo: wow
DoodlestheGreat: Anyone using the term "metaverse," given how Mark Zuckerberg has turned that phrase into stockholder poison, needs to be removed.

Earthenone: Ceos speak simlish right?
SquareDotCube: magic magic magic

Lysander_salamander: Hello everyone
RockPusher: Toobs!
AshBurnem: It's not just a truck you can just dump something on!
LordZarano: "An internet was sent by my staff"
Akaiatana: Yes, our company is very averse to the Mets
TheMerricat: ""A series of tubes" is a phrase used originally as an analogy by then-United States Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) to describe the Internet in the context of opposing network neutrality."
Spacecarl: He deserved it, to be fair
Bugberry: "I get it" voice over "he didn't"
vmcf13: like people messing up eddie murphuys jokes
rubikdarkwill: not QUITE? Almost completely miss!
TemporallyAwry: Don't forget "The Matrix" and "SAO" ;p
saucemaster5000: Big surprise -- We go bacwards!
TheMerricat: oh no. I'm almost 50 and I read Ready Player One but never got a chance to read Snowcrash.... :P
matthaus_c: ah, The Matrix, that late 20th century movie lrrBEEJ
Lysander_salamander: that is the first thing you do
Drasvin: Always check to the left.
Bugberry: going backwards is as ubiquitous as caves behind waterfalls
Akaiatana: @LoadingReadyRun Backwards Competability
ANeMzero: Yeah, looking up is what you'd require if you don't want any gamers to find it
TemporallyAwry: Look Back, Lock Up, fix inverted-axis, waterfalls!
Lysander_salamander: I was so gleeful to teach my younger brother about that when he started playing videogames
saucemaster5000: I also love that the movie was clearly made by a 70 year old spielberg because so much of it took place at the overlook hotel. Y'know, from video games
OmnipotentTrevor: The puzzles in the book are indeed completely different
Bruceski: The term I learned for checking behind you and in places that had a tiny space between buildings and walls was "have you thought like Insomniac lately?" Spyro did a bunch of that
KeytarCat: @TemporallyAwry whatever inversion the axis starts in, it's wrong!
TheMerricat: As a reminder Ernie Cline, prior to writing Ready Player One was famous for writing an ode to Atari era video games and Airwolf....
DoodlestheGreat: P5 was WAY before Zuckerschmuck.
Juliamon: Ted Stevens' enduring legacy
ghyllnox: That's the difference between a simile and a metaphor
ghyllnox: Exactly
Akaiatana: CEO, in Hacker Voice: I'm incompetent
ApplicativeJones: If you go back far enough to Ender's Game (book), I had the same reaction to "the enemy's gate is down". Like.. anyone who's played a game like Descent reorients their frame of reference contextually. Constantly. It's not a great innovation.
Earthenone: anyways Amazon
saucemaster5000: paragraphs even
ButButTheJesus: @ApplicativeJones THANK you
TheMerricat: Beej, this is the CEO that is famous for dumping all the content for reality TV shows because it was cheap money, he doesn't give a hoot about what his company does as long as he gets money.
ANeMzero: suicide squad kills the justice league is apparently coming at some point and will be terrible
LordZarano: There was that fighting game
ButButTheJesus: (I meant that sincerely btw, not sarcastically, in case it came across like that)
1creper: <message deleted>do you want do you watch Free movie
Akaiatana: DC Universe Online! Two!
ApplicativeJones: @ButButTheJesus No worries - I read it how you meant it.
KV1NN4: apparently Babs and Buster are actually related (brother and sister?) now..?
saucemaster5000: @KV1NN4 wait... they pulled a lucas?
Juliamon: Unless they bring back TMBG I'm not interested
Lysander_salamander: uh
RuiFaleiro: @ApplicativeJones i mean, Ender's Game the book predates Descent by like, a decade?
KV1NN4: Apparently.. I really hope that was a dumb rumour
TheMerricat: @ApplicativeJones To be fair, Ender's Game was published in 1985. The original Descent came out a decade later....
Lysander_salamander: oh dear
richard_ermen: lol
ButButTheJesus: lol
Earthenone: did the name issue come up?
saucemaster5000: Did Babs make out wit Buster to make Daffy Solo Jealous?

TotallyNotaBeholder: Are you saying no one had the nessecary koalifications?
Earthenone: does he have to have his captainhood revoked for not getting first in line?
saucemaster5000: Honestly I was surprised there was a line at my store for pickup. Haven't ever sat in line for a video game before
Juliamon: Earthenone Per Midnight Suns, not all Captains lead from the front
Loonatic93: I still remember the "Waiting for World of Warcraft/Diablo 3" Commadore Hustle scene with Adam and James.
SymphonicLolita: the only time I've ever stood in line was for the animal crossing/doom release day
betweenmyself: @lordzarano true, but *most* depictions of hands created by humans don’t inspire Lovecraftian horror inside my lizard brain, so…
saucemaster5000: (the one guy there for a Usb cable) uh.... yeah! Yeah, zelda!

Juliamon: It was baby PAX East

Juliamon: There's a strong chance someone on the internal review team actively hates their employer
Laserbeaks_Fury: So, you're saying they needed to bring in some "fresh blood" to review it.
TheMerricat: Sometimes eating the dogfood isn't the best way to ensure you make good dog food.
Earthenone: maybe dave from the first story was assigned to the reveiw
Sarah_Serinde: I mean...there's also the possibility that when you're employed by the company to rate the product, you're worried about how things will go for you if you say the product is bad
Laserbeaks_Fury: Also, a game that's banking on the long tail of a Destiny style MMO is pretty hard to gauge.
TheMerricat: Microsoft is big enough that if it wanted to do mock review seriously they could just hold people from other studios to review their quote unquote competing studios games I don't understand why they wouldn't do that.
KeytarCat: @TheMerricat Because they aren't good at business?
saucemaster5000: maybe there was a typo and the review team read "Redwall" instead
betweenmyself: It remains to be seen if they put in the effort to try to correct course in the vein of Realm Reborn or No Man’s Sky.
niccus: compare/contrast with Jedi Survivor, which had review copies that came in pretty hot, and had some reviewers do a long think about the nature of "trust me the launch patch will fix it"
niccus: the game turned out well, but it was still a rough review
Laserbeaks_Fury: I felt so bad for Arkane. Trying to broaden yourself out of what you're good at is very hard.
Juliamon: Yeah, companies don't want be pigeonholed as only making one kind of game because that's a good way to stall creativity... and then something like this happens
Laserbeaks_Fury: Especially after BioWare crashed and burned so hard
ButButTheJesus: Hey, you don't question Bob in shipping
MrGibberish: @laserbeaks_fury Which still saddens me.

Farwanderer subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 56 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Farwanderer! (Today's storm count: 18)
kusinohki: spent too much wrinkly gray matter on this bit...
Laserbeaks_Fury: hey, something to do with a Ouya
DoodlestheGreat: There's places that have archived a lot of Flash games.
SymphonicLolita: I still have a windows vista machine for that purpose
SquareDotCube: Can you buy it for peanuts?
LordZarano: There's Adobe Flash "Projector" that can play .swf files locally
Earthenone: nope
Earthenone: first rule of improv, always say no
kusinohki: 2nd rule of impove - yell at others to be funnier
ButButTheJesus: seems bad!
Earthenone: sounds like 40k orks
RedRaptor: 3rd rule of improv - It's all about you and only you.
SquareDotCube: cyanite pill is too neat and clean. Here's a grenade
Laserbeaks_Fury: Turns out it was a fragmentation error Kappa
Metric_Furlong: 4th rule of improv: if in doubt, blame the audience for not having a sense of humour
LordZarano: Ticket closed - could not replicate
RockPusher: It's got a little list
MrGibberish: 5th rule of improve: honk
RockPusher: of grenades that'd not be missed
Exxaxl: Aw yeee we talking bit integers.
Exxaxl: 128 is never a 'random' limit you pick in regards to games or computers. it's 2 to the power of 7 which matters a whole lot when dealing with 1010101010 situations :)
CururuGuasu: Always happens. Takes days to find the code that is wrong, and then it’s a couple of changed characters to fix it
Juliamon: OH NOOOO
SymphonicLolita: 10/10 development
Earthenone: "dont think about the pink elephant"
DoodlestheGreat: FailFish
MrGibberish: Wow lrrWOW
Exxaxl: This is the Elden Ring dog oneshotting you all over again.
TemporallyAwry: Sorry, we talking about that Destiny gun again?
Beefpants: rip
Beefpants: Welcome to game dev
ApplicativeJones: @TemporallyAwry Apex, this time
SquareDotCube: Remember, programming runs on a loop until it exits in some manner
SmithKurosaki: Related oops: Destiny 2 has a portal on the Moon labelled 'Bidirectional' with an arrow sticking out of it
Laserbeaks_Fury: You would think grenades would have a higher priority
Brozard: @smithkurosaki wait what? Where?
SmithKurosaki: @Brozard Eris' Portal on the moon
Brozard: Ah, yes
ButButTheJesus: i'm reminded of parts of midi music dropping off temporarily in FF6 on SNES when certain sound effects would play
Exxaxl: So - this can be converted to making certain effects 'client side', not 'server side', the issue is you then run into sync/display issues where not everything looks the same to everyone on the server, which is miserable when trying to play cooperative games : )
Spacecarl: Okay, naming it lockpick is maybe a bit bold
TheMerricat: @exxaxl additionally it's a horrible pain to keep hackers from turning off effects to 'see' better than everyone else if it's local
MrGibberish: @spacecarl Objectively, a good name for the program
betweenmyself: @spacecarl their first name “Shhh, Don’t Tell Nobody Where You Got This” was deemed ‘too wordy’
Spacecarl: @MrGibberish oh sure, but I feel like that name implies something that may be unwise. or draws more attention
Exxaxl: Oh god the Bowser's private parts kerfuffle, hah.
TemporallyAwry: "This can be used for crime, but it provides wider use and value to society" - probably should be more accepted/protected. PrideShrug but that's just my opinion.
Loonatic93: Sounds very similar to the whole "Right to Repair". argument.
TemporallyAwry: The Year of our Sonic, 30
Juliamon: TemporallyAwry Being able to prove that it does provide value to society is the key though
Asimech: "In the year of our Luigi, Sonic's 30th anniversary..."
betweenmyself: This, The Year of Our Blue Blur…
MrGibberish: @juliamon That’s such a gray area
Juliamon: MrGibberish One that other, less-positive industries (looking at guns in particular) take advantage of.
Lysander_salamander: :D
SquareDotCube: Sidon has a swimmer's body
Juliamon: mmm Sidon
v_nome: Are fish abs like the beluga whale with abs?
gnyrinn: There is that whole "No! You may have paid money and feel like a buyer, but you only bought a license to use this software in the precise manner that we like" that gets on a lot of people's nerves.
niccus: ganon's positively desiccated
SpoonfullOfSugar: wait gannon is not gannondorf?!?
Laurence72: This is the ab police! Come out with your hands up and your muscles revealed!
ButButTheJesus: ♪ yah! ♪
betweenmyself: I always keep my abs behind an obscuring wall of flab to throw off my pursuers.
CururuGuasu: Thighs like hams
aitsu100: judging from smash yeah he never lost it
Brozard: Where’s my fan art of Ganondorf in a black vest?
Lysander_salamander: He was pretty darn sexy in Hyrule Warriors 1
TemporallyAwry: Like Sheik and Zelda? :p
CaptainSpam: Sorry, the only voice I accept for Ganondorf these days is a specific variety of text-to-speech voice singing Suavemente.
SquareDotCube: we're not quite sure of Ganon's physique in Wind Waker besides "big"
Loonatic93: I was thinking more Tuxedo Kamen vs. Moonlight Knight.
Bugberry: All goes back to Demise
kais58: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Friday Night Paper Fight (The LRR crew plays Magic the Gathering! This week, good old fashion 4-Player Commander! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Fri 05:00 PM PDT (1:29 from now).
Loonatic93: Although, that may be more Zelda vs. Shiek.
ButButTheJesus: a Ganon who is currently a Dorf
AkiraBalance27: very specific
Laurence72: I don't wanna get hit by a truck though!
Favre_the_Undead: oh, that anime's good
DoodlestheGreat: Oh, it's off the road already.
Sogheim: @Laurence72 it could be a bus! or a subway train!
Spacecarl: that implies that it was with you to begin with lrrBEEJ
TimIAm: Dorf on Ganon
Serivus: I definitely refer to him as the 'Dorf in Smash Bros
betweenmyself: Ganondorf on Golf
Asimech: Something can't get away from you if you never let it get close to begin with.
shurtal: Gannon, and his brother, Steven
Brozard: Please! Mr. Dorf was my father, call me Ganon
Asimech: Or at least that's my motto for saying I come up with.
SquareDotCube: Dorf Castle, the Dwarf Fortress sequel Zelda tie-in nobody expected
Laurence72: Is that Break or brake?
TotallyNotaBeholder: The sequel is Break!! !
Brozard: Ganondorfromantik
DoodlestheGreat: Coffee Break?
aitsu100: @SquareDotCube oh no now i want this to exist
Loonatic93: So, when does the "Sailor Moon" Break!! Source book come ouot?
LordZarano: jlrrBreak
Laurence72: Ty Heather =)
Lysander_salamander: Oh I've heard of this one
betweenmyself: “¡¡Romper!!” for the Spanish speaking market
PMAvers: Thankfully you've got Girl By Moonlight coming to cover that niche now.
aitsu100: ^
Bugberry: I just want a Granblue Fantasy tabletop game.
Lysander_salamander: oh?
Earthenone: swords and sorcery, aka katanas and ninjitsu right?
mowdownjoe: I mean there was a Junji Ito Elesh Norn and a Junji Ito Secret Lair.
ButButTheJesus: huh
Lysander_salamander: Was that the one that the author of Lodoss War played?
Laurence72: Love that classic art style
Earthenone: sailor moon is our DM?
goombalax: these look sweet
Loonatic93: Looks like something from El Hazard.
aitsu100: so something Jer would want to run
CodeIndigo: It's literally "Rules Cyclopedia". And the art is heavily influenced by Lodoss War
richard_ermen: It led to tthe development of Sword World
richard_ermen: These looks so sweet
Lysander_salamander: nice
Earthenone: so many weird dogs
Exxaxl: Dragon Quest TTRPG?
Angnor33: So, in the US the D&D Rules Cyclopedia was a compendium of basic D&D rules, which was slightly different from AD&D and AD&D 2nd edition.
Loonatic93: Also: El Hazard would make for a great RPG world.
Lysander_salamander: yay
CodeIndigo: @Loonatic93 Hell yeah
betweenmyself: Cat boy has too few nipples. 0/5
TheMadPunter: That sounds ominous...
TheMerricat: Western Rules Cylocedia was the BXCMI rule set published as one book. It was the rule set originally created to screw David Cook out of royalties by Gary, but because he got booted from TSR before he could put his fingerprints on it it also ended up screwing him
RealGamerCow: One of my friends is making a TTRPG with combat based on Darkest Dungeon
RealGamerCow: So Beej has no imagination. Got it. :D
Laurence72: Is this why FF14 is so popular?
PMAvers: Ah. Necro-romancer.
Mr_Horrible: ah, callbacks
CodeIndigo: Nekomancer
Snowcookies: he's not a necromancer!
ApplicativeJones: catboy? must be a nekomancer
ButButTheJesus: katesSus
Bugberry: find cat boys in your area, desperate to play trpgs
MrGibberish: Necromancer or Nekomancer
betweenmyself: riffDuffy
Earthenone: i read books in anime
SymphonicLolita: yeah that's why I can't get into roleplay stuff, I wish to See it
CodeIndigo: Imagination for rent
Bugberry: just get anime minis
Lysander_salamander: Dune is very anime
RockPusher: Beej demands AR become a viable thing lrrBEEJ
LordZarano: Can't picture anime horses club
roastbeefsandwitch: oh lord, now there's an alt universe where the boys who nerd out over rpg's are actually catboys. Unfortunately, they're just as gross and rude as people in our universe
Loonatic93: We have Dune the anime... It's called Trigun! lrrBEEJ
roastbeefsandwitch: the catboys in their manuals are just idealized versions, in thtat world
SquareDotCube: Dune is absolutely a premise for early 80s anime'
Bugberry: Desert Punk also falls under this.
Loonatic93: @Bugberry *giggle*
Exxaxl: Some big company will figure out nerds would splash top dollar for having their magic cards turn into true AR / VR creatures on a battlefield and I'm here for it.
Lysander_salamander: zoom filters?
RealGamerCow: Beej would love AR TTRPGs
SymphonicLolita: is that what Vtubers are for?
ButButTheJesus: @TheMerricat ooh neat
Earthenone: we have pikmin bloom at home
Mr_Horrible: oh shit, a Bloom County MMO?
Exxaxl: Will it have actual graphics and a good framerate? :^)
betweenmyself: Just staple pictures of your friend’s character to their foreheads whenever they speak in character.
PMAvers: So will it be a visual novel about running a flower shop?
betweenmyself: *friends’ characters, whatever
Exxaxl: 'Can we disable the Bloom in the settings menu' /s
Lysander_salamander: that would be fun too
betweenmyself: Could be a mushroom dude wearing a skull beanie…
betweenmyself: *straw beanie, dammit
richard_ermen: Most likely not though =|
Exxaxl: Gamefreak has discovered Dark Souls 3 crab swamp :)
Loonatic93: New game from Nintendo: Toad: And The Wet Sproket." lrrBEEJ
TheMerricat: Welcome to my fanfic explaining how Last Of Us was the precursor of the Mushroom Kingdom....
AkiraBalance27: @TheMerricat I love it

TemporallyAwry: Also - have you done your yearly rewatched of RoadQuest yet?
CasualKing21: planechase!!
Earthenone: its like beejdrops
TemporallyAwry: ^ exactly!
betweenmyself: It’s like using Nasal Spray antihistamines… Use it too much and it messes up your head bits.
Angreed66: It's spoilers if you tune in after the start
TheDailyMapleSyrup: We need a Beej-A-Ton
DeM0nFiRe: 100% what I am gonna do, play as much as I can tonight / tomorrow morning so I can watch without being spoiled lol
RockPusher: !lovebeej
LRRbot: Chat loves Beej and I love Beej lrrBEEJ
TemporallyAwry: Tune in tomorrow, to "Experience the Beej Experience" PridePog I'm in!
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
richard_ermen: Yaaay
Lysander_salamander: what
Lysander_salamander: I've never heard of this. Sounds cool
richard_ermen: Omae wa mo fit-deiru!
RockPusher: Nani‽
Metric_Furlong: "you are already fit"
Lysander_salamander: wow
betweenmyself: The victory state causes your Switch to explode.
TemporallyAwry: Did Ian get the mushroom live? It might be 3-D horses.
Juliamon: I genuinely hadn't heard of this game before he announced he'd be playing it, and all I've gleaned is that it was hella predatory microtransactions
cmdrud87: what are they doing again on the paper fight tonight?
Juliamon: TemporallyAwry It still needed some work
Earthenone: comander @cmdrud87
Juliamon: cmdrud87 Commander Planechase
cmdrud87: nice!
TheMerricat: Please tell me Paul is in the CTS ...
Sethalidos: I give crossing the streams 10 minutes before someone draws a dong
niccus: ben was in con quarantine
cmdrud87: @Juliamon KENNEDY
Mr_Horrible: *mouse voice* "Help me, Leon!"
MrGibberish: @juliamon It’s.. really bad micro transactions. You play the first hour or 2, then every area is individually pay walled
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lrrSHINE lunarj1Heart lrrSHINE lunarj1Heart
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Juliamon: MrGibberish Good think he has James' credit card! Kappa
MrGibberish: Like 15+ each
DeM0nFiRe: o/ lrrHEART
TheDailyMapleSyrup: lrrSHINE
MrGibberish: lrrSHINE
Juliamon: It couldn't be a worse investment than the Vanguard game was
Earthenone: i played wizard 101 for an hour or two, the start to paywall was quite quick, and you have to subscribe to your broomstick
AriaDreamGirl: lrrSHINE
LordZarano: Cardfight Vanguard sure did... happen
MrGibberish: Worst part, is the target audience is kids-preteens, so it’s easy for them to be attracted by the setting and particle effects
MrGibberish: I also remember the commercials when I was a kid
