ShaneLeeAtk: Wonder Boy in Dragons Trap let you flip between remake and original Master Console graphics.
TheAwkes: I've never liked the results of smoothing pixelated sprites into illustration-style images. That continues to be true for this.
Gizmoloid: were PS1 games uprezzed on PS2? i think that only started with PS3
GapFiller: Dark Forces 3 Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast

Izandai: I sincerely think we should have that.
bytecaster: @RockPusher I'll take a vegan Remake then!
aerolend: Upscale?
Coloneljesus: it's only a remaster if it comes from the rema region in france. if not, it's just a remake
KeytarCat: Remaster comes from music, right? That last step of listening back and fine tuning the effects and mix is Mastering, but I don't know what that would mean for a video game
greyducky: This episode is making me realize that I want to play Diablo 2 more than 3 or 4
EirynKatherine: "We can't stop them from naming their games whatever they want" Heather 'No Numbers' Dery
mtvcdm: Natural genres with other natural genres
GapFiller: jlrrFacepalm
Metric_Furlong: why
TheMerricat: So in related news to this article, a reminder to chat that VOXEL Doom 2 was released a week or so ago. They replaced the sprites with custom voxel based models, it LOOKS like the original game till you get close enough to move around things.
greyducky: Boo
Juliamon: Effective, but not in a good way

TheMerricat: So people are finding out that the Denuvo DRM for the Switch isn't _for_ the Switch but to prevent people from using emulators to play the games on PCs.....
bytecaster: To be fair, the most effective pirating prevention system would be to have the game just not start: 0% of pirates can play the game.
bytecaster: *100%
bytecaster: of normal users can't play the game either
gnyrinn: Performance issues that they have denied, about as convincingly as Shaggy denied charges of adultery.
Metric_Furlong: also, people can't pirate a game if you never release it
Sorator13: @bytecaster I'm not sure that's foolproof, though; someone's gonna mod the game to get around the roadblock if there's a large enough fanbase
aerolend: Meanwhile GhostWire: Tokyo added it at some point before some DLC release.
Sorator13: even if that means writing half the game themselves
bytecaster: DeNewVo
accountmadeforants: What if Denuvo's Switch DRM is just an FPS counter and if the game runs above 30 FPS then you're clearly not running on a real Switch MiniK
bytecaster: Maybe they should rebrand to, I don't know, X, or Meta or something
TheWooglie: @bytecaster twitter DRM is going free
aerolend: @accountmadeforants It also measures the amount of fun you're having with a set limit of it.
Wicker_Guide: yeah, but this is Nintendo. They've always disliked third party emulation
bytecaster: Can't we go back to the Monkey Island model with the paper disk system.
LordZarano: Switch can be emulated on Steam Deck can't it?
accountmadeforants: Even 3DS emulation is a pain in the ass
Agu_Sakku: Why I never got into Monster Hunter on the PC.
MungoDude: switch emulation is a lot easier than say ps3 emulation
Sorator13: I also think companies rather overestimate the impact that emulation has on their bottom lines; a significant amount of folks who pirate games wouldn't buy them even if pirating wasn't an option
bytecaster: We need to convince someone clueless, so do a thing.
Izandai: @Sorator13 I'm sure there's people like that. I'm sure there's also people who say that who would have a different perspective if piracy was not possible.
TheMerricat: Nintendo takes down Youtube videos of people giving them FREE advertising. They absolutely don't give a shit about the impact being 'minimal' they care about the 'appearance'.
Sorator13: @Izandai Oh for sure; it's hardly a perfect argument
TimIAm: The game could be phoning home, and if the emulator runs if faithfully it would phone home to.
jupi_taru: Emulators emulate the server
TimIAm: Unless the emu devs were proactive to stop that.
TimIAm: Definitely not a perfect metric by any means
Sorator13: Only if that "phone-home" functionality is enbabled in the emulated version; they usually do that in the self-contained environment
accountmadeforants: @Sorator13 Yeah, in fairness, I bought an PS4 exclusively to play Bloodborne (and am tempted to get a PS5 for Demon's Souls if they drop in price enough). I wouldn't have spent that kind of money or time if I could just emulate. Exclusivity and lack of availability does work to a point.
TheMerricat: BTW chat, the Dolphin emulator devs recently updated the emulator to work with a WiiShop emulation so you can now get your News channel and Everybody Votes channel working again....
EikoandMog: Is Denuvo the one that like, only two people know how to crack. One of them only does Soccer games and the other is really, really weird?
KodeMage: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Wilds of Eldraine PPR (Join the LRR Crew and our special guests Chris Mooney, Lady Lavinia & Jumbo Commander for your first look at Wilds of Eldraine in action! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Sat 10:00 AM PDT (18:33 from now).
bytecaster: I'm sure there is some hamfisted metaphor involved, like Denuvo is like a padlock for the bicycle that is your video game.
LordZarano: If the game could detect that it was running on emulator in order to phone that home then it wouldn't need Denuvo, it could just not run
TheMerricat: Sorry, not WiiShop emulation, the 24Connect emulation.
EikoandMog: Does the Wii Pizza now work?

LordZarano: CPU access to video memory is probably the main thing that PCs cant do easily that consoles do
SAJewers: ?
Xafty: uh oh
Sorator13: panicBasket ?
Brozard: ruh roh
TheMerricat: So back in the old day when games came on Floppy Disks the antipriacy measure that was most common was your floppy was intentionally made with a sector that was bad so that you couldn't read from it accurately. And the game would check that sector like 20 times and if the data was still the same each time it decided the game was pirated.
StarlitGhost: stream ded?
Snowcookies: fire?
accountmadeforants: Nintendo Ninjas work quickly

Sorator13: Nintendo knew what Heather was about to say and shut it down
Programmerman1: oh good it’s not just me
Gizmoloid: shakes fist
KV1NN4: the loadinfgReadyLawyer broke the stream so Heather coudln't incriminate herself? XD
GapFiller: gdi Nintendo

Gizmoloid: definitely find
emberBecky: back now I think
EikoandMog: We're back!
Juliamon: It's back, refresh
Coloneljesus: we missed heather's opinion
accountmadeforants: Stream died right before Heather got to say what she wanted to say
Agu_Sakku: drrhinOPOGGERS drrhinOPOGGERS drrhinOPOGGERS drrhinOPOGGERS
Juliamon: "I would definitely--"
bytecaster: Twitch is silencing Heather!
GapFiller: clearly somebody objected to Heathers opinions
MungoDude: I would definitely fi...
ryuhimora: @lordzarano that makes absolutely no sense, PCs are designed to do exactly that with integrated and dedicated graphics
Sorator13: That was the one, yeah
accountmadeforants: seabatClap
EikoandMog: Nintendo! Please use Linkle more!
Metric_Furlong: Linkle is just a fun name to say

RockPusher: Jazz Jackrabbit
bytecaster: Cream the Rabbit?
Sorator13: Sonic the Hedgerabbit?
Izandai: @bytecaster do WHAT to the rabbit???
Coloneljesus: I wonder how many years there will be between sonic's 30th and sonic's 35th anniversaries
bytecaster: @Izandai It's canon!
bytecaster: @bytecaster Or rather she is canon.
KeytarCat: Comes with a rabbit pelt-skin!
Sorator13: @bytecaster just be sure to get consent first
Wicker_Guide: That looks like a creepy Bill the Cat Ripoff
mtvcdm: You get Sonic's skin. Not the rest of Sonic, just his skin.
greyducky: I love it
MungoDude: wow, Jazz Jackrabbit was more of a Sonic ripoff than I knew
shurtal: isn't Cream's mom the one that's the size of a normal human mother?
ramonaviking: Ikea bluegray
Izandai: "Would you like it if it was a hedgehog?"
Gizmoloid: twitch app still can't comprehend that the stream is live again
Gizmoloid: oh there it is LUL
Sorator13: why is sonic news?
misteline: Just rejoined. Which character will Heather block me for?
Sorator13: ah, that is why
Sorator13: @misteline Rabbit Sonic
bytecaster: @misteline Rabbit skin
misteline: Ahhh. Yes, I would block me too
Wicker_Guide: because that would be giving people what they want
SaxPython: NotLikeThis
Metric_Furlong: "I want the Sonic stuff to be something I can step on" - Brenden 'Beej' Derry
bytecaster: Only if the Rabbids and Rayman are allowed to come!
Simriel: @bytecaster maybe they are into denial
mtvcdm: They did actually get the Chaos Emeralds in a lego set.
Wicker_Guide: Isn't Charles Martinet retiring?
SaxPython: Blue Mario is great
Izandai: Mario has face-blindness.
Lysander_salamander: He has face-blindness
Sorator13: @Wicker_Guide from VA, yeah :(
DiscordianTokkan: Yessss
bytecaster: @Izandai Is that why he never remembers the names of all the Goombas?
mtvcdm: I wonder if his impending retirement is part of why he didn't do the movie.
accountmadeforants: Put Chris Pratt in
Izandai: I prefer the idea that PEACH is colorblind, and the letters are so she can tell Mario and Luigi apart.
TemporallyAwry: I've never actually heard that theory before ... I wonder what the Wa-Bros excuse is
EvilBadman: He got tenure
Agu_Sakku: Mario's father in next movie too?
mowdownjoe: Good bye, Charles! Glad to have had you for 30 years!
Wicker_Guide: he's graduated to Executive Producerhood
GapFiller: and ofc Eggies presence still has cache years after he left
Sorator13: I interpreted it as "We want you to have a position with us even if you're actually retiring."
SaxPython: Reggie PogChamp
Sorator13: Happens a lot in hockey
Izandai: He did Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi.
GapFiller: no doubt Charles will still be plenty around even if he aint doing the voice anymore
Lord_Hosk: Its a way for Nintendo to keep giving him health benefits?
GapFiller: Runner3 for anyone interested
mowdownjoe: He did that with Runner 2, as well IIRC
bytecaster: It's been nice to get my weekly blue Mario news live!
Wicker_Guide: I have to go iron my dog
TheMerricat: chat was it the opening of gamescom that the person who really liked gta stormed the stage on?
SaxPython: PogChamp
Snowcookies: Minecraft is important
GapFiller: speaking of Keighley there was that really menacing statement abt the guy who crashed the Keighleys this week
bytecaster: Maybe there is a Minecraft mod to have it play on a screen in the game?
EvilBadman: Gamescom DriverCam
accountmadeforants: "Listen, someone is going to punch a 64x64 set of blocks in Minecraft, and that's vastly more important"
