TehAmelie: if he really thinks Ghibli studios will turn to crap without him, what can you do but end the company
Metric_Furlong: also since the takeaway from the lack of retirement announcement is that Miyazaki has more film ideas he wants to work on, I wouldn't expect things to shuttering
Metric_Furlong: @TehAmelie If
Metric_Furlong: *things to start shuttering
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL Coming soon from Studio Ghibli: My Neighbor To2ro - Vengeance
Thefluffiestguineapig: Or the equivalent of the MCU crossovers
Metric_Furlong: the plot is basically Speed, except with the Cat Bus Kappa
TehAmelie: lrrSPOT
GapFiller: Thefluffiestguineapig MEtropolis only JUST went public domain in the US this year
GapFiller: and its still under copyright everywhere else
GapFiller: and yr asking abt a guy who is still not only alive but doing stuff
GapFiller: phfffbt
RockPusher: !search for treasure
LRRbot: You find: a Potion of Healing!
LoadingReadyRun: Starring The Rock as Big Totoro. It's about FAMILY
Thefluffiestguineapig: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: box text

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (2m from now).
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LoadingReadyRun Starring Vin Diesel as Riddick. They needed the most ruthless killer in the universe
Thefluffiestguineapig: !findquote Rock

LRRbot: Quote #2784: "Hair! Right! Hair! Other people have that." —Ian [2016-06-13]
TehAmelie: i'd like to see Totoro hug the badass out of Riddick
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie There are a lot of Edgy McEdgelords who could benefit hugely from Totoro hugs
Juliamon: ugh, this apple wasn't as crisp as I was expecting it to be
Metric_Furlong: Also featuring John Turturro as himself, due to someone in the casting department misreading the script
GapFiller: Thefluffiestguineapig optimistic to think people are changeable in that way but w/e seems legit
TehAmelie: and Guillermo del Toro, aka Totoro
Thefluffiestguineapig: For me the prime example is that Sir Christopher Lee never advertised just how much of a badass he was, had a sense of humor about himself and thought things were adorable. That is a genuine badass
GapFiller: just ask Peter Jackson eh
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Oh no! Are you more lrrAWW or lrrEFF ?
TehAmelie: i'm stuck on the memory of the story from the filming of Pacific Rim where the little Japanese girl couldn't say Guillermo's name so she was allowed to call him Totoro
Juliamon: I'm more "wait, was this the apple I thought it was?"
Juliamon: because mom bought a few kinds
TheMerricat: "The name was coined by child actor Mana Ashida, who played young Mako (Rinko Kikuchi) in del Toro’s 2013 monster movie, “Pacific Rim.” Ashida, who is Japanese, could not pronounce del Toro’s name, so she asked if she could call him “Totoro-san,” as a reference to Studio Ghibli’s “My Neighbor Totoro.” Del Toro confirmed the story a few days ago on Twitter, solidifying his place as one of the nicest directors in show business."
TehAmelie: i think i've heard of him refusing to talk to other people who mess up his name, so, extra sweet
RockPusher makes up lyrics about a disappointing apple to the tune of Bad Apple
Thefluffiestguineapig: @GapFiller I was thinking of other deliberately grimdark characters like Riddick, but there might be a rare human who could be influenced
Juliamon: she bought two ginger golds for me, and I don't know what the other types she bought are, so I don't know if I mistook one of them for a ginger gold
Invitare: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (3m ago).
Juliamon: so I'm either mad at the apple for not being up to my standards, or mad at myself for eating someone else's apple
GapFiller: hmm cdve prob rewatched CP+ at this rate
TehAmelie: the news are still cooking, i guess
GapFiller: nalvThink news is plural come to think yeh
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TehAmelie Just cooling, we are transitioning from hot news to chilled news
beowuuf: hagning out is tough
GapFiller: which is phunny that its treated as singular
Metric_Furlong: @beowuuf yeah, but if you try hanging in people just call you a casual
TehAmelie: i only think of it as plural if i'm referring to several discrete news items
TheMerricat: Chat, stupid preshow question. Dad just got diagnosed with Alpha Gal (aka the no red meat 'disease') this week. I'm looking for any good recommendations to pass to him and mom on how to prepare tofu (they like Chinesse food so I figured that might be something they'd be into when they get tired of fish and chicken...)
beowuuf: for once the spelling was deliberate :p
beowuuf: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG
RockPusher: lrrDOTS lrrSIG lrrARROW
TheAinMAP: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG
DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIG
GapFiller: WE ARE CLIVE!!!
Thefluffiestguineapig: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG
TehAmelie: lrrSIG after ten thousand years
GapFiller: TehAmelie is the collective news therefore a singular item or multiple discrete items
Thefluffiestguineapig: Who are we graced with today? Is Beej recovered from PAX?
GapFiller: oooh tape warble
GapFiller: not had that inna while
Metric_Furlong: @TheMerricat depends a bit on how firm the tofu in question is, if you want to fry or bake it you'd want to the firmer stuff, silken you need to be more gentle with
They_Are_Alyx: Kathleen & Paul is a fun combo
GapFiller: Thefluffiestguineapig Heathers PiF has been pushed back so take that how yr will
TehAmelie: depends on context. this show is the news, and the things it talks about are the news
kusinohki: meows
TheMerricat: @Thefluffiestguineapig From what I remember Graham and Paul saying during the voting for the remakes, the quarentine period should be over now and we should get a Beej?
GapFiller: TheMerricat strictly tofu or are they up for eg tempeh seitan banana blossom ect ect
Metric_Furlong: tofu does marinade pretty well though
They_Are_Alyx: Tweet says Kathleen & Paul
PixelArtDragon: @TheMerricat The refractory period lrrBEEJ
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Metric_Furlong When first learning I tend to recommend people stick to firmer things just while you get the hang of it
DideRobot: LRR: Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Kathleen and Paul and chat about this week's gaming news. https://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun | https://kind.social/@LoadingReadyRun/111031566907886834
TehAmelie: i think the secret to tofu is figuring out what seasoning you like best by itself
GapFiller: TehAmelie what yr saying is CheckPoint is the 10 o'clock news and ChillPoint is Newsnight over on BBC2
TheMerricat: @GapFiller My parents grew up extremely.. sheltered. They weren't introduced to texmex in the form of TacoJohns till they were out of college. Subs even later than that. I'm trying to find just something to help them with that won't blow their minds or make them shy away form "oh that's too much work" :D
GapFiller: fair
Thefluffiestguineapig: That is fair
gualdhar: @gapfiller maybe more Daily s
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TheMerricat if you are in the discord the cooking channel there might be a good port of call too since they will have more links
TheMerricat: @Thefluffiestguineapig I keep forgetting that LRR has a discord channel for more than LRR stuff. :D Thanks, I'll heed over there post stream.

GapFiller: hey kids remember PAX pox?
KeytarCat: :(
beowuuf: o7
RockPusher: May the con-crud be mercifully short
amative1: lrrSHINE
PixelArtDragon: Concrud? That some kind of grape?
GapFiller: that was a thing even before 2020
patbaer: and Ian too.
mowdownjoe: PAX Pox strikes again!
amative1: hope they feel better soon
TehAmelie: candy? consider my morale lifted
Invitare: my sense of taste and desire to eat usually goes when I'm sick
Thefluffiestguineapig: My morale is lifted by you talking about it
TheMerricat: The one shining silver lining of the pandemic was we thought it killed off PAX pox... I guess we were too optimist.
CaptainSpam: So with you two telling us this, it makes it some Con Crud CanCon?
KV1NN4: booo con-crud!
GapFiller: TheMerricat yeh it feels we used to be a lot more blaise abt that stuff
GapFiller: also the cutting to Beej at PAX was a good callback to that one time they cut to Kathleen at GDC(?)
GapFiller: Kathleen: I'm at GDC! back to you Graham!
RockPusher: Quickpoints: The stories that are punchlines rather than setups
GapFiller: Graham: what!? why did we send her there just for that!?
PixelArtDragon: Quickpoints: has a high enough speed to go before the rest of the points
GapFiller: Paul: can I go next time!? Graham: NO!
RockPusher: People often forget CheckPoint is a comedy show :D
Graham_LRR: “Missed” is maybe not accurate
helloiamaldo: but it's great when someone in the comments gives some more info in case you want to know more serious facts
Drasvin: Hi Graham
RockPusher: ohai G
Thefluffiestguineapig: Hey Graham!
GapFiller: RockPusher that CP+ is frequently more journalistic than actual news doesnt help ofc
GapFiller: Graham_LRR nalvHi hai G
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, it's terrifying
PixelArtDragon: I don't expect CP to be the most comprehensive coverage of everything that happens in a week. God, that would be so long and so boring.
RockPusher: GapFiller I mean, that is often true of comedy news shows…
Thefluffiestguineapig: So a small scale Ghostwire Tokyo?
v_nome: Yo Kai Watch?
Bruceski: Pokemon Go has like 600 different things to find. Doesn't Pikmin have, like, 8?
KV1NN4: there WAS horror ARG game a while ago
KV1NN4: (that i was aware of)
Thefluffiestguineapig: I mean, the FNAF ARG is still somehow going
emberBecky: anyone else play SpecTrek? I think it was android. feels like it was a pretty early AR mobile game like the pikmin but it was ghosts, which is perfect.
Foxmar320: Pikmin Bloom
Foxmar320: You fight giant mushrooms
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, there seem to be three kinds of ARG. There's the PoGo style, the need a full headset to get the best experience
CaptainSpam: I maintain that Pikmin Bloom is a solid step tracker. It's not much more, but it's still a good step tracker.
LordZarano: VR has you define your playspace so barriers can come up when you get near walls or furniture
tendrilsoftragedy: When has Nintendo not scored own goals?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Then the last is the things that are essentially puzzles added onto a game you don't need to do but can do
CanvasWolfDoll: my concern is nintendo is planning to start voicing mario with ai
Thefluffiestguineapig: As opposed to: did they even tell him?
HarmonisedMelody subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 28 months!

GapFiller: good analogy that
GapFiller: esp the Iron Sheik bit
GapFiller: not unrelatedly Bubba Ray and DVon got Legends contracts just today
tendrilsoftragedy: Oh thats cool!
Thefluffiestguineapig: OH NO
emberBecky: oh oof
GapFiller: jlrrFacepalm
TheMerricat: "A voice cannot be copyrighted. According to the legal decision in Midler v. Ford Motor Co.: “A voice is as distinctive and personal as a face."
KV1NN4: She does put on that voice tho so it's a eprformance... i guess?
tendrilsoftragedy: The Bubba and DVon thing is cool
Bruceski: I would have expected contract stuff in that respect
Thefluffiestguineapig: Before she was promoting predatory schemes
IzlanntheLion: Charle isn't even retiring from voice acting though
Laserbeaks_Fury: As long as she doesn't say "hey this is Bart Simpson"
They_Are_Alyx: COWARDS
tendrilsoftragedy: Leave Voxy Alone!
TheMerricat: @TheMerricat That being said the article that I quoted that from goes on to say that more popular people who 'trade' on the use of their voice might actually be able to TRADEMARK their voice.... IP law is weird.
GapFiller: speaking of Scientology in other tech news this week (last week?) turns out The Church is REALLY anti Right to Repair
EikoandMog: Nancy Cartwright has donated 21 MILLION to Scientology.
Bruceski: I encountered that with Gale, he kept trying to advance the romance stuff pretending I hadn't already turned him down and it wasn't clear whether it was broken flags or Gale being Gale.
GapFiller: their reasoning being it encourages people to take apart e meters
LordZarano: Still no Bear% runs yet
GapFiller: which now really makes me wanna see Ian disassembling an e meter on TTSF
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bruceski If that's intended that is gross. Having experienced that IRL it is a truly disgusting feeling
PixelArtDragon: Make it a game setting
bo_brinkman: My character is romancing Shadowheart with the expectation that at some point she is going to go all Mega-Shar and betray us.
swampfortress: anyone hear some angry weasel noises in the distance just now?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LordZarano What's the hangup? Is it owlbears from different biomes?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Mass Effect had that issue sometimes where just not being mean advanced the romance
rubikdarkwill: The Sex% is one of those speedrun that only happens on the old version
RockPusher: Yarrrr!
GapFiller: yarrr
Bruceski: @Thefluffiestguineapig Yeah, I THINK it was a bug, nothing seemed to acknowledge it. But it's either bad flags or red flags.
TheMerricat: @GapFiller In a perfect world, which being perfect would mean they don't exist, it'd be interesting. In our world that would be a horrible idea since it would put LRR in the crosshairs of Scientology harassment.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Planet of Craft Wars
GapFiller: TheMerricat strue sadly
beowuuf: bootlegging was hiding booze in the boot, wasn't it?
TheMerricat: @GapFiller That being said..... https://hackaday.com/2018/07/19/whats-inside-a-scientology-e-meter/ :P
Dhaunayne: Hi, I usually watch on Youtube but I found my Twitch login so I can ask about hoodie arm length. Is that information anywhere?
IzlanntheLion: No politics
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bruceski I will say if the person is a socially talented white, rich, cis male or a customer that is still the case. People will just gloss over it
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Zaz___ Is it from smuggling?
PixelArtDragon: @Zaz___ I think it came from Prohibition
Bruceski: @Zaz___ Whiskey smugglers. Hidden in the boot leg.
ImmortalLen: Nintendo has used fan roms before on past virtual consels.
RockPusher: Or have the source code but don't have an environment that it is buildable in anymore
swampfortress: @Zaz___ comes from alcohol smuggling i believe. Hiding stuff in their bootlegs
Thefluffiestguineapig: An Oroboros of bad decisions and exclusivity
TheMerricat: @Thefluffiestguineapig "Origin late 19th century: from the smugglers' practice of concealing bottles in their boots." - according to Google.
Dhaunayne: "back then?"
LordZarano: "boot + leg. Originally a nickname given to smugglers in King George III's reign, derived from the smugglers' custom of hiding packages of valuables in their large sea-boots when dodging the king's coastguardsmen." - Wiktionary
Laserbeaks_Fury: UbiSoft hates piracy so much, they can't bring themselves to finish Skull and Bones Kappa
Dhaunayne: it's still a problem
RockPusher: Companies need to hire themselves some digital hoarders :D
GapFiller: thing is that attitude hasnt gone away
TheOtherTrevor: I don't have experience with games specifically but I am very familiar with time passing and no longer having the ability to actually compile/build new versions of software due to infrastructure just not being available anymore
PixelArtDragon: Sometimes it's easy to forget that robust version control systems weren't industry standards even 20 years ago
Thefluffiestguineapig: I would say some of those companies have just not saved anything
GapFiller: how many late nineties tech is now unusable
beowuuf: the early bbc archives *shudder*
Bruceski: Make a game, no GaaS upkeep, no patches, once it's printed why keep anything?
emberBecky: ohh need to check who won..
miniMacGuru: At least we don't have them stored on dead Jazz drive discs.
PixelArtDragon: See: the lost Doctor Who episodes
GapFiller: nalvThink all those people who switched to jazz drives twenty odd years ago and are now up the creek
Thefluffiestguineapig: @beowuuf The fact they said "eh, no one will want this" and tapped over it
denofaiz: Nintendo is a bad example because its been proven that Nintendo kept lots of stuff for a long time even past when it was useful such as the Spaceworld Demo Pokemon of Gold and Silver
RockPusher: OG film is wonderfully flammable
beowuuf: @Thefluffiestguineapig yuuuuuup :(
PixelArtDragon: @RockPusher And, for better or for worse, recyclable
Dhaunayne: I wonder how true the Pixar story is about almost losing a movie
TheMerricat: It still blows my mind that early film was essentially gun cotton and would go up in flames at the drop of a hat.
TehAmelie: nitrate films, i think we lost over 60% of all the movies made before celluloid
LarkSachrosis: Apocryphally, the BBC was going to record over Flying Circus.
rubikdarkwill: Brave New Faves! No VoDs, no replays, only Masters!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RockPusher Yeah, the number of times archived film or just collections went up in flames is not great
Bruceski: That said, digital media deteriorates too. You can't pull a 40 year old hard drive out and it just works (unless you're lucky)
LordZarano: Celluloid was flammable to the point of basically being explosive
Knittinglibrarian: Evening
TheMerricat: Chat is a hive mind....
TheMerricat: Evening @Knittinglibrarian :)
RockPusher: LordZarano that's 'cause it is pretty much *made* of explosives :D
Thefluffiestguineapig: Or people thinking that saving things other than the big successes was not worthwhile
GapFiller: nalvLUL jlrrFacepalm
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RockPusher Slightly flattened explosives
LarkSachrosis: Even *if* they have the infrastructure and skill, do they have the will?
Thefluffiestguineapig: When I have money again they will be on the list
Graham_LRR: Because the ESRB is funded *by* publishers. They are a lobbying group.
BusTed: Hey, it happened.
RockPusher: Gotta catch (a large proportion) of them all!
Foxmar320: I still play Pokemon Go
TheMerricat: I'm still pissed that the copyright office dropped the requirement for registering a copyright being you give a copy of the work to the office for prosperity.
Foxmar320: They skipped releasing the last generations starters for the new one.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, not quite all of them but it's more than any other single mainline game
Dhaunayne: @TheMerricat posterity?
Thefluffiestguineapig: The Paldea ones?
BusTed: They release in batches, not by generation.
amative1: Oh it's much more than that. They each have dozens that aren't in the other.
Izandai: I doubt it's just 5. I bet each gen has a handful that weren't added.
Thefluffiestguineapig: They do a shit ton of regional stuff
Juliamon: Meltan and Melmetal were also a weird situation
Izandai: Like, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they didn't bother putting Sunkern in GO.
PixelArtDragon: I think there are more Pokemon, but the selection of generations mean it's 5 more than the other game
betweenmyself: There’s also the facet in which companies want the ability to be able to memory-hole old content that ages poorly without having outside sources for people to look through these works.
amative1: There are 1010 Pokémon
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Izandai I can get the exact ones if you want
BusTed: Anything that's weird tends to get delayed, but the early generations are all in.
amative1: (plus some special ones)
Izandai: @Thefluffiestguineapig I am curious!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Izandai That's not one of them!
Izandai: Oh, huh.
Foxmar320: I think I have the first three gens complete in PoGo
Izandai: I guess I'm also not surprised that all of gen 1 and 2 are in there.
Izandai: *and 3
Raincoast_Bear: Time to to update the Poke Rap!
Invitare: I prefer less. Even if they could add them all, I think it works better with a slimmer roster
PixelArtDragon: Suddenly "gotta catch them all" sounds like a torture, not a challenge
Foxmar320: Wow im missing 4 in Gen 4 and 2 in Gen 5. All are unreleased.
Izandai: I mean. That's definitely a problem some people have with it.
amative1: @Foxmar320 nice
Raincoast_Bear: The disappointment is they are still using sprites from years ago...
Juliamon: It's a problem some people have with it, but it's not exclusive to ScarVi
Izandai: @Foxmar320 Pokémon Go Master over here.
Juliamon: the complaints were in the previous gen too
Invitare: Dubwool IS good
Foxmar320: Izandai hardly lol
Dhaunayne: i like trubbish
They_Are_Alyx: Everytime a new Pokémon game comes out, there's a handful of very loudly complaining about not having a full Dex
Thefluffiestguineapig: Sinnoh there are I think two missing plus possibly Arceus
Snowcookies: rip series S
Thefluffiestguineapig: But then the lists get VERY long quickly
Juliamon: ah, I can understand some legendaries being missing, but it's weird that they haven't gotten Rotom worked out yet
Invitare: god the Xbox names are so bad. It's worse than the Wii U
TehAmelie: the main reason i never got into pokemon is that it wasn't possible to actually catch them all. not with just one gameboy. . .
Thefluffiestguineapig: (I said possibly Arceus because I am not convinced they will release it in GO at all)
Foxmar320: I have a Series S and ive noticed slowdown and lag in many games ive played on it.
Thefluffiestguineapig: They lied!
LurkerSpine: eh, more like they failed than lied
Thefluffiestguineapig: And it STILL didn't work??
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LurkerSpine I was meaning about it having the same guts in all versions
TheMerricat: If your game is _BIG_ enough Spencer will give you a pass.
bytecaster: Just gotta make your game as popular as BG3, eeeeeaaasy!
Dhaunayne: didn't the N64 have an external processor as an accessory?
Thefluffiestguineapig: I'm giving it all I can Captail!
PixelArtDragon: I feel bad for the engineers, because from my experience working with GPUs, it's probably an issue of going from 95% to 100% instead of 50% to 100%
Izandai: @TheMerricat A game pass? demipyroCool
Raincoast_Bear: lrrKATHLEEN lrrAWESOME Trek reference.
v_nome: @Dhaunayne A memory expansion, I think. Not a CPU
TehAmelie: @Dhaunayne double RAM, at least
Thefluffiestguineapig: Oh Moving out is so good
TheMerricat: @Izandai :D
Juliamon: Kallax
Izandai: @Dhaunayne Are you thinking of the Super FX Chip some SNES games had?
SquareDotCube: Did you ever play Home Improvisation?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is this the same people that made Home Improvization?
Dhaunayne: aren't most IKEA items just the swedish word for the item?
Cadyn: i love my Ikea Kallax
TehAmelie: like 1/4
Thefluffiestguineapig: @SquareDotCube On W+P as a palate cleanser and they said they were going to try a CTS and I think forgot
Zaz___: Dhaunayne sometimes its just swedish words
TheMerricat: The SNES had the FX Chip that some carts used to offload graphics processing, but I don't think the N54 did anything like that.
DarknessKingCoH: I think the memory expansion for the N64 was solely for DK64's memory leak at first.
PixelArtDragon: Superman's Swedish brother, Kal-Lax
SquareDotCube: The Moonbase MK 3 shelves are Kallax, IIRC.
SquareDotCube: AKA the very old background
jessicaengle: If the name doesn't confuse consumers or have a proveable negative effect on sales, two things can have the same name and that's fine
Asimech: Kallax is named after a place in Sweden, according to Wikipedia.
RockPusher: Says SquareDotCube while the CheckPoint wall background is on screen gabyLul
TehAmelie: kallax technically could be translated as "cold salmon" but that's probably not what it's supposed to say
PixelArtDragon: @Asimech I think most if not all IKEA products' names are real places/things
Asimech: And yes, the place is named Kallax, there's no change in spelling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kallax
josh___something: Does it use an existing system?
SquareDotCube: John Hoodsm'n
Greyah: I unironically love reading ttrpg books even if I'll never play them. So this sounds interesting.
Asimech: @PixelArtDragon It varies. Sometimes it's just the Swedish name for the thing. E.g. Blåhaj directly translates to "blue shark".
They_Are_Alyx: @greyah Same
SquareDotCube: if only there was a more appropriate title for "Reader"...
They_Are_Alyx: Ah, the Fantasy Flight model
krorkle: Cool mini or not, I think.
helloiamaldo: CMON is pretty big, right?
TheBigRobot: cmon? cool mini or not?
Raincoast_Bear: Cool Mini or Not started as a mini review website
LurkerSpine: CMON is huge at this point, although I think they've pivoted to Kickstarter only?
DeM0nFiRe: Meanwhile Path of Exile still gets new free content every few months (not all of it good but still lol)
GapFiller: Blizzard: we dont care abt morale only money
GapFiller: no doubt to certain types of C Suite people money and morale are equivalent
GapFiller: if not the same time
Invitare: I mean... it might only be one this time too
TheMerricat: Diablo 1 only had one expansion too.
MrTheWalrus: Diablo will continue until morale improves.
TheMerricat: Kathleen, if Overwatch has taught me anything, even if people still want to play Diablo, that won't guarantee that they'll be able to keep playing Diablo.
Foxmar320: Yeah sorry about that I may have told him about the sale
Geldaran: Depends on the pricing and length/quality I suppose, but Blizzard has long burned any goodwill they had left long ago.
jessicaengle: All entertainment is optional.
RealGamerCow: GaaS, Games as a Service
EvilBadman: I straight up skipped last season because other games
LarkSachrosis: They've also gotten better about it not feeling like you fall behind if you step away for a while.
TheMerricat: I loved Blizzard for their stories and all of the lore smiths that were responsible for the things I loved are gone elsewhere or just gone.
BrowneePoints: Woah Kathleen on Chillpoint!?
jessicaengle: jlrrCai jlrrLlou ?
Izandai: AdamArt.wav
iris_of_ether: Wow
Dhaunayne: will it have the Nintendo Seal of Approval?
TheMerricat: "Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is the twenty-ninth game in the Rugrats games series. The video game will be released in 2024 on PC and consoles, including the Nintendo Entertainment System. A baby-fresh take on retro-inspired gameplay - Featuring a unique co-op design, where kids and parents need to stick together to win! It has a distinct 8-bit retro aesthetic and seems to be inspired by various Nintendo Entertainment System games. There is also an option to play with HD graphics inst
BrowneePoints: @TheMerricat Counterpoint, at least for Warcraft it's still there
BrowneePoints: oh yea. Sea of Stars is amazing
KeytarCat: I am CURRENTLY playing it!
BrowneePoints: if you like Chrono Trigger/Old SNES rpgs, play Sea of Stars! It's just better!
TehAmelie: i wonder if NES even had any devkit or if it was just people writing hexadecimal code on typewriters
bytecaster: Jump scare, you have sprite limit again
ANeMzero: There was a new Garbage Pail Kids NES game last year too
TehAmelie: (not typewriters)
BusTed: Smurfing
BrowneePoints: High Level account making a new one to get into beginner Queues
bytecaster: Smurfing: The process of becoming a smurf
TehAmelie: coined by Warcraft 2 players, of all things
EvilBadman: You are the Gargamel
bytecaster: You are being a jerk
Bruceski: Depending on the game smurfing is either just having a much lower rating than you deserve or having your high-level accound give your lowbie a bunch of gear that you can't get normally at that level.
Geldaran: Being a scumbag should be a bannable offense.
ANeMzero: You're circumventing systems meant to make the experience better for new players so it is.. kind of griefing.
BrowneePoints: the FUNNIER Dota 2 story, is if you're in low priority queue for bad behavior, you can't pause/unpause, and 9 of these people got into a game with one who wasn't, and he PAUSED THE GAME FOR 3 HOURS as he went to get supper @LoadingReadyRun
EikoandMog: It's not really against the rules but it is considered "poor sportsmanship"
BusTed: That was changed, (un)fortunately
TheMerricat: how do you get into a match like that? how does their match making routine fuck up that bad? unless he was already on the road to become one of them
BrowneePoints: it not perfect algorithm @TheMerricat
BusTed: @TheMerricat Because people with low scores get matched with each other.
BusTed: They are in a different queue.
jessicaengle: A sea of Sea of Stars
Wicker_Guide: What is Sea of Stars?
They_Are_Alyx: Good for them!
iris_of_ether: I Kickstarted it! It looks so good
EvilBadman: Yeah it's on Gamepass and ps+ iirc
SocraticMethod: A chrono-trigger-like
jessicaengle: I hope it's a starfish simulator

TheMerricat: @Wicker_Guide Modern retrogame, as Paul and Kathleen mention hugely popular.
BrowneePoints: Ninja Gaiden Ode
BrowneePoints: Sea of Stars is actually set IN that universe!
Wicker_Guide: Oh, I know the Messenger
jessicaengle: If you've got time to spar, you've got time for star
Wicker_Guide: okay, on board
TehAmelie: i've tried to write two different stories called Sea of Stars. i'm happy this game got there first cause now both of them need another name
Invitare: Starfie-wait
dankmemeter: 2Ninja2Gaiden
codatski: It's so good. I just finished it and I can highly recommend it.
EvilBadman: Mario RPG remake in November
SquareDotCube: ^
Wicker_Guide: If you use 2e D&D, you're retro, regardless of your graphics
BrowneePoints: yea Chained Echoes is very Breath of Fire ish
Raincoast_Bear: I've been playing Bards Tale...its from the 80s! Very retro indeed!
LurkerSpine: and star ocean 2 remake :D
SquareDotCube: RPGs that *aren't* 100 hours, or even 50 hours.
mtvcdm: People will play lots of types of games if they rock.
kerthwack: hullo
EikoandMog: Same with AC6
SocraticMethod: "happening"
SquareDotCube: The Chinese Room has no idea what they agreed to...
Metric_Furlong: Bloodlines 2: bleed harder
Snowcookies: again
Thefluffiestguineapig: Had to step away for a second but I really cackled at the DOTA punishment being no pause
ANeMzero: A new developer who is maybe not the same developer you think it is.
BusTed: Hey, a 20th anniversary sequel.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Why?
SocraticMethod: The new developer fired old staff and replaced it with new people, so the dev house is also undead
They_Are_Alyx: The original Bloodlines also had a fairly fraught dev cycle
Wicker_Guide: So then the old game is bye bye
Metric_Furlong: the old pave and start again
ANeMzero: Also important to remember that The Chinese Room basically laid off everyone, then got bought out and built a new studio under the old name. So if you're thinking "oh this is the studio that did Dear Esther, Amnesia A Machine for Pigs or Everyone has Gone to the Rapture" well.. not really.
BrowneePoints: and onyx path having the rights to old WoD, and Modiphius having the newer rights. It's a MESS
Thefluffiestguineapig: @ANeMzero Wait, then is the team that made Amnesia the Bunker not the same as the original?
Metric_Furlong: The Other Chinese Room
SocraticMethod: Funnily enough, the new Bloodlines 2 is doing full 180 from the premise.
BrowneePoints: I mean, didn't the old VtM Bloodlines kill Troika?
ANeMzero: @Thefluffiestguineapig The Chinese Room only did Machine for pigs, the rest of them are Frictional
JoviniusMaximus: As paul said earlier, "Also making a The Chinese Room"
Wicker_Guide: A Chinese Room is a Philosophy thought experiment
They_Are_Alyx: @browneepoints Pretty much, yeah
Dread_Pirate_Westley: TV and recording artists
Wicker_Guide: I'm guessing that's the refernce
betweenmyself: The Chinese Room: “Oh Hai, Chinese equivalent of Marc!”
BrowneePoints: Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
Metric_Furlong: (the name is a reference to a philosophical thought experiment about the nature of knowledge)
Metric_Furlong: @BrowneePoints well, Bloodlines came out and then Troika got killed anyway
Dhaunayne: isn't the chinese room another kind of turing test?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Right
TheAwkes: I fully support them and their strike, but it's been tough. Haven't worked since January.
ballesta25: @Dhaunayne It's a thought experiment about artificial cognition, yes
Metric_Furlong: @Dhaunayne not exactly, although the concepts are related
Thefluffiestguineapig: @TheAwkes Yeah, the fact that this is what it takes to get even any concessions is just sad
Drasvin: @Dhaunayne The Chinese Room thought experiment was a refutation of the Turning test as a means to determine consciousness in machines.
BrowneePoints: *gestures to Hi-Rez saying they're okay with using AI Voices*
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, I know even beyond video games, animated series, podcasts etc are starting to get the fear
aracdezwade: <message deleted>Left guy looks like a classic nerd
Wicker_Guide: Video Game companies known savvy and considerate negotiators /s
Thefluffiestguineapig: The thing that would amuse me is if that strike led to other parts of production also striking
SocraticMethod: @BrowneePoints Were they? I'm pretty sure it was about a rider that was changed later to be strictly against
LordZarano: Every other Watch+Play game using text-to-speech will likely be unaffected
Wicker_Guide: KITTY
TehAmelie: i thought the game was already very scinematic
Thefluffiestguineapig: @LordZarano I hate ravens
saiarcot895: it...has a chance, i think
TehAmelie: +spelling
Laurence72: Was there enough story in the game to fill out a full movie Kappa
BrowneePoints: I think the world has enough intrigue to make a movie
argentslipstream: yeah, the plot of the game but much more cinematic
Verrain2: They'd have to go WALL-E.
Metric_Furlong: it'd be a bit difficult training a cat to do all that
CururuGuasu: They could do the Garfield mod version of it
kusinohki: totally won't get confused with strays which is currently out...
RockPusher: It could work as a movie - hope the narrative designers get paid tho
Dhaunayne: did you see any of the Stray mocap behind the scenes?
Wicker_Guide: lrrSPOOP
saiarcot895: featuring Chris Pratt
bytecaster: Like Ratchet and Clank!
Joalni: They describe it as "hopepunk", so I am already intrigued.
Thefluffiestguineapig: That is a cursed idea
TehAmelie: if memory serves the cat is orange, like Garfield
josh___something: Not dying
GapFiller: twenty years of experience there eh Kathleen
GapFiller: twenty five even
RockPusher is still amused he got the meowing achievement before the finishing the tutorial achivement
Master_Gunner: Whenever I'm in the general vicinity of the kitchen, I have a *pretty good* idea what my cat is meowing for.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Inside
Thefluffiestguineapig: or outside
Laurence72: We can Cam do more cat news for the movie
Thefluffiestguineapig: or inside
betweenmyself: “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of kitties…” *gives scritches*
Thefluffiestguineapig: or outside
argentslipstream: its great, it reverses controls
Thefluffiestguineapig: The ZeFrank "Sad Cat Diaries" is perfect for that
Drasvin: From what I know of Stray, the cat wants to find its friends/family. And gets distracted by shenanigans along the way
BrowneePoints: it was a rescue cat right?
Dhaunayne: it was several cats
SocraticMethod: @SocraticMethod https://twitter.com/schisam/status/1692261224023548054 Found it, they had a rider that allowed for "synthetic performance" if the VA was incapacitated or dead. THey changed it later to disallow it.
KV1NN4: Kathleen: There's plenty of mods for Stray to change the cat type!
KV1NN4: :3
Thefluffiestguineapig: Cat "GET IT OFF GET IT OFF!!"
Bruceski: I had to harness-train my cat for a cross-country drive (rest stops) and he sulked so hard when I put it on him.

Thefluffiestguineapig: This really feels like he got miffed about the movie casting
Thefluffiestguineapig: That's a good point
betweenmyself: Martinet will continue being their go-to “Wahoo Guy” for small-stage functions.
BrowneePoints: Wonder
amative1: Wonder
Dhaunayne: chris pratt
EvilBadman: Just sounds like he got tenure, but I may be naive
argentslipstream: i think its just wonder
Raincoast_Bear: Chris Pratt will do all the voices...
Thefluffiestguineapig: A super dystopic point but probably correct
TheMerricat: Not Chris Pratt?
LarkSachrosis: Nolan North lrrBEEJ
Bruceski: Martinet's roles in the movie were lovely
BrowneePoints: Yep. Homophobia Pratt was easily the worst part of that movie
Thefluffiestguineapig: Or even just so they don't have to deal with the voice being attached to a human being
Thefluffiestguineapig: So it can be about their brand not the human
Wicker_Guide: Also, if Martinet is having trouble with the voice I would not wish a feature film on him
Boiler_bot: 110% agree Paul.
BrowneePoints: Tsunami
SquareDotCube: Make our dreams come true and have a single game with Danny DeVito as Mario :p
BrowneePoints: and got canned by Afleck
BrowneePoints: Aflack*
TheMerricat: RIP Gilbert.
Boiler_bot: Hmmmm
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Wicker_Guide If this is truly the core reason then I wish them the best of retirements. Health concerns for things like that are sucky
Thefluffiestguineapig: Trying to circumvent Checkpoint!
HyruleGirl9: they dont want us to know the truth!
Bruceski: Every marketing team out there has discussions about the Checkpoint Cycle.

DoodlestheGreat: JACKBOX!
rubikdarkwill: Yeah, they cancelled Tiltyhouse
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Raincoast_Bear As much as I wish they would do this because he is rad and also very good at voices, I think he might be a little bit too much of a figure with opinions for Nintendo
Thefluffiestguineapig: !box

Thefluffiestguineapig: Yup, so far it's a good game
DoodlestheGreat: If Cori's still out, Cam will probably pick something.
Loa_Ayizan: About the length of an arm, I suspect
GapFiller: its got body length and chest circumference
GapFiller: it figures arm length can be guesstimated from that info
Juliamon: As someone with long arms, I am not putting mine on until the weather cools down so sorry.
GapFiller: Juliamon same problem here
