LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL ♫It's the final Strand-down♫
Earthenone: duDudu
Saulens181: we *hope*, unless there's yet another 3 hours of plot
Didero: Is anybody taking bets on how often the game will make us walk across the US? :p
Didero: Good evening!
LoadingReadyRun: Beej's PiF starts on Tuesday, so we could finish up on Monday, if necessary.
Earthenone: whats beej doing?
Earthenone: or is it secret?
Didero: Betrayal At Kondor
Didero: An old DOS game
Didero: ~lasttweet
LRRTwitter: [12h ago] @loadingreadyrun> We had an absolute blast. | Check the VOD of our #sponsored TBH stream! | Watch us get *really* into the weeds on some deep questions 😄 | @malki> If you missed @loadingreadyrun play TBH yesterday, here’s the full video! https://youtu.be/aeCdCDbtZVo || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1387987543711358979
Didero: oh, the tweet was older than I thought, lemme try and find it
TheMerricat: OMG Betrayal at Kondor was one of those games that I kept getting free copies of but never had the time to look at or play. Here's to hoping it's fun :)
Didero: That image says 'Betrayal At Krondor', and even though I don't really know the game, it still kind of feels like a Berenstains situation
TheMerricat: And my memory is spotty, did we beat Cliff last session or are we still in the midst of that?
LoadingReadyRun: I believe we are *at* the Cliff
beowuuf: we stopped as it was perfectly timed and seemed like it would be a boss fight
beowuuf: also sergeHi
Didero: Oh right, we were in a Vietnam Beach
Saulens181: Given the theming, I'm anticipating a 4th fight with a theme form a more modern war the US in involved in
Didero: Or maybe one slightly in our future?
Genie_M: hi everyone
Didero: Hi!
TheMerricat: Afternoon @Genie_M !
beowuuf: in the grimdark future of war, there is only the Rock Paper Scissors
TheMerricat: And PrideHi @beowuuf :)
beowuuf: ooh, new emote PrideHi ?
TheMerricat: I think it's old, might be from their pride push event in 19?
beowuuf: ah, nm, I will settle for PrideRise
TheMerricat: :D
TXC2: Hello Everybody
beowuuf: hey txc2
v_nome: It's weird, I started Betrayal at Krondor not that long ago and have since seen 2 other people I follow talk about it too. I wonder if there's a common thread. lol
TheMerricat: So for planning purposes if we stopped on Cliff, we have the Cliff fight, an optional boss fight, and a mandatory boss fight coming up.
TXC2: hi beowuuf
TheMerricat: Then cut scene hevean
TheMerricat: heaven?
beowuuf: heaving?
KV1NN4: Cutscene limbo?
KV1NN4: purgatory?
TXC2: Kojima's Cutscene Inferno
beowuuf: look, if we can make die hardman wear the otter hat, it will be cutescene
DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIGNAL
beowuuf: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
TheMerricat: But.... Conan gave US the otter hat Beowuuf. How could we regift such a wonderful item?
saberpilot: lrrFINE lrrPAUL
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for more Death Stranding on Play it Forward! Will today be the Final Strand-Down? Possibly! http://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun 📷 https://pbs.twimg.com/tweet_video_thumb/E0PK_KrVIAQzWo9.jpg || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1388176302079762438
beowuuf: themerricat: it will be the most painful choice imaginable, and will prove if sam is a hero or renegade :p
TheMerricat: This tune is definitely getting me in the mood to watch a boss fight. Bloods pumping :)
TheMerricat: LOL :)
nullvoid8: hey all
TXC2: Hello nullvoid8 welcome
beowuuf: sergeHi PrideRise
TheMerricat: Afternoon @nullvoid8
CAKHost: It's the final stroll!
CAKHost: Maybe!

Tom_Bruise: Alright, let's see if we can finally put this baby to bed
TheMerricat: meh, am I hungry enough to order lunch now or can I wait for the theoretical hour gap between PIF and Chillpoint... choices chat. adulting is hard.
PharaohBender27: Party100 If my calculations are correct, this is Episode 17, meaning that you have tied with lrrGRAHAM 's FF7 PiF for the third-longest Play It Forward
Didero: @TheMerricat Order food in the mid-stream break as a compromise?
nullvoid8: man, I wish the UK weren't grinding back to life. I'm going to miss most of this stream
nullvoid8: I want to see Paul and chat get exasperated at how long this goes on for
Rhynerd: Thinking about it, this would be a great stream to open up with Fortunate Son, considering where it’ll probably start Paul off.
sydnius: that Darned Cliff
PharaohBender27: @Rhynerd katesLol
TheMerricat: @Didero but what if it gets here during a juicy cutscene!?!
lirazel64: @tom_bruise I see what you did there.
Didero: @TheMerricat Hmm, good point
beowuuf: it begiiiiins
PharaohBender27: SOON(tm)
TXC2: Here we GO!
lirazel64: @rhynerd Or Wayward Son.
CAKHost: Oh yeah, we entered another Cliff Dimension last time
Didero: Oh my god, I just realised that stopping right before a Cliff fight made the previous stream end on a literal Cliff hanger
TXC2: Paul song HYPE
TheAinMAP: SingsNote lrrPAUL SingsNote
TheMerricat: Paul opening with a song isn't going to be the only thing I miss from his PIF's, but it's the top thing. :)
beowuuf: lol didero
wench_tacular: jlrrCooltunes
beowuuf: and hey paul!
PsychoI3oy: 👍
Didero: I love these stream start songs, Paul! <3
TXC2: Hello Paul
Tom_Bruise: For a quick second I thought this song was gonna turn into "Still Alive" from Portal
lirazel64: lrrHEART
Genie_M: i know more and more of these songs after watching Longest Johns :)
TXC2: Tom_Bruise Right?!
plummeting_sloth: in our shanty group, we were only allowed to sing that as the last song of the night
plummeting_sloth: Like, we literally glowered someone out of the door who tried to sign in partway through
Didero: Just submit it to speedrun.com and let them figure it out Kappa
plummeting_sloth: er, sign it
CaptainSpam: The finaller boss, leading up to the finalest boss?
TheMerricat: Main Story - 41h - Average
plummeting_sloth: sing it dang it!
KV1NN4: i've had that happen to me at a conveniton mroe than once..
nullvoid8: it'll be fine. plain sailing the whole way back
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat It's those dang pizza deliveries that made us go 5 hours longer Kappa
CaptainSpam: Yeah, all your friends move out to the east coast as soon as you get to the west, we've all been there...
NicoTheSly: Her :)
sydnius: Good Morning Vietnam!
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 the 'leasurely' time on howtobeat is over 60h so we are still doing awesome :)
plummeting_sloth: so we went WWI, WWII, 'Nam, so I'm hoping the game gives us a curveball and throws us into, like, Grenada and it's actually not too bad
NicoTheSly: Let's save the world today.
Tom_Bruise: Everybody seems to forget about the Korean war, huh?
PharaohBender27: @Tom_Bruise Yep
lirazel64: @ikr?
sydnius: ‘twas a police action
lirazel64: Sorry
PharaohBender27: @sydnius So was Vietnam, technically
lirazel64: @tom_bruise ikr?
TXC2: isn't the Korean war still going technically?
TheMerricat: ^
beowuuf: Look, I'm just saying Death Stranding is a video game, you finishing it is like news, how about you bring heather and beej in to help comentate as a chillpoint+ :p
Genie_M: should be - could be fine
KinoGami: the korean war is kind of on "pause"
mitomanox: bah, missed the singing :.(
mitomanox: hi paul <3
mitomanox: enjoy your day
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 True. Though for most intents and purposes it ended as a full-on war in 1953
plummeting_sloth: Time to make Final Fantasy's cutscenes seem brief and direct
wildpeaks: time to finish this chyrCoffee
PharaohBender27: Now the "at war" is mostly in the legal sense
TXC2: PharaohBender27 neat
plummeting_sloth: deliver some bullets, ideally at high velocity
sydnius: I wonder how many likes Cliff will provide
Genie_M: doesn't matter here
Genie_M: just shoot them
Didero: Why does picking up a bug make Sam grunt so much?
plummeting_sloth: these sequences are totally "Look, we gave them guns we should let them use them at least once"
Lord_ZYRK: We're at the beach, which means this is getting deducted from Sam's vacation time.
plummeting_sloth: although I doubt they'll give us back that rocket launcher
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Also I'm not sure if that status includes the U.S., or if it's just the state of things between the Koreas. I also vaguely remember reading that Britain or some other allied country was still technically "at war" with Germany until 1990? Or is that something my brain made up?
beowuuf: the studio made the note that walking around delivering mail wasn't what all the kids were in to, so Kojima took the note and snuck it in to a single scene to keep them happy :p
plummeting_sloth: quick, fill your bullet holes with cryptobiotes
TXC2: PharaohBender27 sort of, Britain was "at war" with EAST Germany, 'cause that part hadn't surrendered during WW2
beowuuf: wasn't there something even funnier where some small part of britain was still at war because the UK had declared the ceasefire while the union was still being shored up, and techincally there was one small part that hadn't been included yet? Grr, that's going to bug me....
electra310: I've missed a bunch of streams again, but I'm glad to see the funky fetus is back with us.
Tom_Bruise: There was also this fake war between a part of England and the Netherlands that lasted for about 350 years... yea, war's weird
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Which is kind of weird, since technically East Germany was the Soviet Zone, and for 1941-1945 Britain and the Russians were on the same side.
TheMerricat: Have we shot the ghosts with the non-leathal?
TXC2: beowuuf probably the channel islands or something
plummeting_sloth: @beowuuf I think that's BArrick upon Tweed
Genie_M: yes, any ammo works
electra310: Isn't everything nonlethal to ghosts?
Genie_M: blood rounds damage you though
beowuuf: barrick upon tweed sounds right!
electra310: Or maybe everything is lethal, since they wind up dead?
Invitare: BB stands for BeyBlade right?
Didero: Have we considered just giving Lou to Cliff, since he seems to be his dad?
TheMerricat: lol
TXC2: Invitare if only
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Yeah, I know for a fact that the Channel Islands were straight up occupied by the Germans during the war.
electra310: Wait, we don't have BB?
beowuuf: "When the Treaty of Paris was signed to conclude the war, "Berwick-upon-Tweed" was left out. This meant that, supposedly, one of Britain's smallest towns was officially at war with one of the world's largest powers – and the conflict extended by the lack of a peace treaty for over a century. "
Tom_Bruise: Look, we can give the BB back, but we've run out of BBQ-sauce, just a heads up
sydnius: barbeqjue sauce
wildpeaks: indeed, it does seem odd
Aenir798: Or at least like "baby" or "kiddo" or something
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> On this week’s AGATHA FISTY: Fisty finally(!) makes her way into The Institute! | How’s THAT gonna go?? | https://youtu.be/IV0jdaMiJzs || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1388180334743736320
Didero: @electra310 We do have BB (or Lou) on our chest, the person shouting he wants BB back is Cliff, not player character Sam
electra310: Ah, gotcha
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Wait, over a century? Are we talking about World War I now?
niccus: it really does make me want to go bb back bb back bb back bb back
plummeting_sloth: also I do feel that these segments were put in the game because partway through production Kojima was like "But where's the Tacti-cool" and they had to fit it in somewhere
Genie_M: your odradek shows the direction
PsychoI3oy: damn lrr why you gotta do that to me on friday... fisty during death stranding is so mean
Didero: @PsychoI3oy The nice thing about Youtube videos is that they can wait :p
PharaohBender27: @PsychoI3oy Look, LRR makes a *lot* of content; schedule conflicts are pretty much inevitable at this point :p
TXC2: PsychoI3oy there's a reason there's a gap between this and Checkpoint Kappa
plummeting_sloth: Baby I was boooorns to runnnn and also fiiiiiight
PsychoI3oy: Didero, i know... but ...
Didero: @PsychoI3oy Alternatively, get two monitors and watch both at the same time!
sydnius: nice effect pedal cliff
flikerz1 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 65 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, flikerz1! (Today's storm count: 2)
SK__Ren: Can you stealth take down the guys here? It feels like the level design actually enables that approach this time
PsychoI3oy: i'm already watching this and a funny looking grain silo in texas do nothing in particular Didero
heronblademaster subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 50 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, heronblademaster! (Today's storm count: 3)
PharaohBender27: @Didero My brain can kind of handle *seeing* both at the same time, but it couldn't watch and *listen* to both at the same time :p
plummeting_sloth: "I was born to fight" noodles around in open ground during a gun fight
beowuuf: @beowuuf No, it was the crimean war, but looking in to it further it's apocrophal. Oh well!
electra310: Maybe they realized that was a poor tactical building choice
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Look, he didn't say he was born to fight *well* Kappa
sydnius: @plummeting_sloth leave james alone
beowuuf: i also want to watch dice friends (I keep watching it late at night and falling asleep) and also watch the behind the scnes for tfaws. So much friday content!
TXC2: Higgs is a trumped up little shit who thinks too highly of himself
TheMerricat: Yeah, Higgs came off a bit like a red herring boss.
plummeting_sloth: I think they tried to explain Higgs as "He could kill you at any time, but chooses not to because something something nihlism" but then the end fight kinda lets that down
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 So . . . he's basically Napoleon Kappa
Rhynerd: Turned out that Higgs needed those powers and the nuke to actually put up a good fight.
wildpeaks: Higgs's dump stat is strengh
sydnius: spawnkrk
Tom_Bruise: yea, but like, Higgs was REALLY bad at fighting, like, REALLY bad
Genie_M: well you two can't die it seems - both of you are repatriates
TXC2: PharaohBender27 Napoleon at won a couple of times Kappa
TheMerricat: The end of the story will/should explain a bit of why Higgs was such a push over.
TXC2: "at last
wildpeaks: ludonarrative
tcberner: What was Higgs's motive?
saucemaster5000: ludolabyrinthsmell
wildpeaks: :D
electra310: Pictures of Spiderman!
Didero: @tcberner As far as I understand it, "Humanity will probably go extinct at some point, so why not make it go now?"
sydnius: sombrero fields
Rhynerd: And then you beat his face in
Zaghrog: Higgs figured life was going to end eventually, and he could make it happen sooner
TheMerricat: I don't know if we learn Higg's motive in the cutscenes ahead or if we have to visit his easter eggs to find out, but there is an explaination.
TXC2: "I don't need my gun to kill you" is how Commando ends :p
tcberner: @Didero so he was a metaphor :D
Tom_Bruise: Maybe that's why Higgs wanted to end the world; he's too much of a crap-out to do anything properly
Genie_M: he thinks that the Extinction is inevitable, and he just plays "whatever, lol"
Rhynerd: He was firing from the hip at you for the most part, right?
beowuuf: the easter eggs are in the peter bunker, right?
sydnius: Higgs was a casual
NicoTheSly: It's a trap
beowuuf: clearly his standards for pizza would never be met, and he decided to destroy the world
Didero: why merely bring more bullet when you can bring more gun
plummeting_sloth: Higgs "Fight me IRL" Boson
Tom_Bruise: Higgs looked at the prospect of having to learn a craft and was all like "Nah, let's kill everything instead"
beowuuf: anyone who missed either the pizza run or the higgs/peter reveal might be confused about that last comment
Rhynerd: Funny enough, Higgs was actually a pretty decent porter if I remember his backstory right.
TheMerricat: So while Higgs is a nihlist his motive wasn't just all "Watch the world burn" there is another variable in play that we haven't discovered yet.
Invitare: he delivers bullets
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun @Genie_M says the non-leathal rifle bullets work just as well against these guys if you want to use it
Genie_M: we can go to his home now (well after the endings)
Genie_M: yeah, all bullets work in the dreamworld :)
PsychoI3oy: prepare for PISS
TXC2: well stop shooting at us then Clifford
Tom_Bruise: You'd think that ghost would see the ghost-sensing windmill stick out from cover, but no. Huh.
plummeting_sloth: you shot a ghost in the ass
nullvoid8: did we cover the fact that François Englert got the Nobel prize together with Higgs?
plummeting_sloth: with blood bullets
plummeting_sloth: in a dream
plummeting_sloth: wait, is this Bloodborne?
X_modem: I think Higs a slightly pretentious metaphor for the AAA game audience/games/expectations, the "stick" of point and shoot at something as the primary game "verb" or being in "god mode" (Kojima might be taking a jab at how unnuanced he feels games "are")
CaptainSpam: Ah, so the Hiss were here, too?
beowuuf: nullvoid8: doens't ring a bell, sounds like mroe stuff we need to discover by going to his place?
nullvoid8: you're not killing people, you're blowing apart zombie bodies
beowuuf: we're not killing them, they're killing themselves running in to our bullets.
TheMerricat: You’ve taken your boss with your boss with you. All hair must be eaten. Under the conceptual reality behind this reality you must want these waves to drag you away. After the song, time for applause.
X_modem: Forgot the "is" in that first sentance.
nullvoid8: @beowuuf it's just trivia on Higgs (the character) naming
TXC2: Paul "extra gun" Saunders
beowuuf: ah, ok!
plummeting_sloth: I don't know...I do think there's something to be said about the shooting segments feeling kind of awkward in terms of his feelings towards AAA shooters, but the man clearly LOVES Tacti-cool nonsense
nullvoid8: Peter Higgs and François Englert got the Nobel Prize jointly for discovering the Higgs Mechanism/Particle
nullvoid8: and Higgs (the character) went by Peter Englert. I.e. they smashed the names together
TXC2: discovering? or postulating?
SK__Ren: With all the tall grass couldn't you just do takedowns?
Tom_Bruise: wait, did having the old sniperguy die of old age count as the nonlethal option?
TheMerricat: I think a game about ghosts coming back to kill us all would probably be hard to do a pacifist setup on anyway.
SK__Ren: Go full snakeeater
PsychoI3oy: so the scary guy with the gold face mask was named Francis?
nullvoid8: @TXC2 in particle physics? same diff imo
beowuuf: @TheMerricat his cliché is death out of time, breaking the first the second the third the fourth wall, the fifth wall, floor; no floor: you fall!
nullvoid8: wikipedia says discovery
plummeting_sloth: but yeah, I like how Kojima dialed up the "You should try playing a pacifist run, it unlocks cool stuff" to 100 for this game, where actually killiing someone is an immense pain in the ass and possibly a game over
TheMerricat: According to the walkthrough you can do takedowns against the ghosts via the grass but no idea if it works like the rubber bullets and just knocks them down or if it removes them from play.
beowuuf: oh, i think that rings a bell from chat mentioning it nullvoid8
TheMerricat: lol
wench_tacular: sure
wildpeaks: we're going ahead with the plan
X_modem: that answers that LOL
sydnius: lrrWOW
Genie_M: welp
Zaghrog: well, that answers some questions
Tom_Bruise: ah the good ol' non-lethal pop-the-head-from-the-spine trick
TXC2: nullvoid8 fair enough, but to me theres a difference between "the maths says this exists" and the experiment proved it exists :P
VacillantVarlet: So it's nonlethal in the same way that Batman is, really
nullvoid8: you can sneak up, but it's tricky
plummeting_sloth: I think the game is doing a pretty straight forward judgment call of "Killing ghosts is fine"
X_modem: I think that counts as using your rope as a stick LOL
nullvoid8: @TXC2 as soon as I said that I wished a delete button existed
TheMerricat: LOL
Aenir798: Turns out, shotguns are really good at point blank range.
plummeting_sloth: made for being filled with lead
TXC2: nullvoid8 ah don;t worry about it
Tom_Bruise: these boots were made for walking right into your own grave
TheMerricat: TBH, shotguns are deadly leathal at far far longer ranges than video games give them credit for.
sydnius: Killstreak
lirazel64: I wonder how different this would be if made by someone who, you know, had babies?
plummeting_sloth: yeah, videogame shotguns are almost undervalued at ranges further than 6 inches
SK__Ren: @TheMerricat But conversely people are stupidly more durable than IRL too so it almost makes sense.
plummeting_sloth: althogh that makes a little since here as at least these ghosts seems to have armor?
TXC2: to be fair, all gun ranges are much shorter in games then IRL
X_modem: Kojima has a son according to wikipedia.
Tom_Bruise: Clifford "You didn't win" Unger
TheMerricat: holy cow they gave us a lot of bugs.
Didero: "I'm leaving because I've got an appointment at the library, not because I'm defeated!"
SK__Ren: Can we refill blood bags?
sydnius: sam’s pwning these newbs
plummeting_sloth: yeah, they seem a lot more effective in this sequence than with your fight with Higgs
nullvoid8: how much deceleration do shotgun pellets typically experience?
lirazel64: Everyone needs variety in their diet.
Lord_ZYRK: Except when pistols score kills at sniper ranges
Tom_Bruise: "See anything out there?" "Nah, just a shambling pile of boxes"
nullvoid8: everyone knows boxes are invisible in kojima games
X_modem: Just a box. *shrugs*
plummeting_sloth: yeah, that was one thing I liked about PUBG was it going "Hey, pistols are worthless except as a last resort"
sydnius: jeez he was humpin
Didero: These shooting sections have all felt far too long
Lord_ZYRK: To be fair, they don't have eyes
Genie_M: it would be if you hadn't a huge pile of stuff on your back
Tom_Bruise: Ha! got'em in the butt
Didero: "I'm standing right next to our target and I have a gun. Let's punc them instead of shooting!"
nullvoid8: grass only works if they can't see you when you enter and crouch
beowuuf: hey buddy...so... how you doin'? doin' ok?
CaptainSpam: All this blood on Sam. Most of it isn't his. He just found it in bags on the ground.
sydnius: offer him a monster
TXC2: also note that cifford's compass has stopped moving
X_modem: 3 chapters to go.
Genie_M: i'm still shocked by how incredible face animation and "acting" is in the game
Didero: no touchy de bb
Didero: What a stupid question, Sam
CaptainSpam: "No, I'm Clifford Johnson." "DANGIT!"
X_modem: No I'm his manager
sydnius: i am spartacus
NicoTheSly: This is weird
TXC2: The Father, The BB and The Holy Kojima
Tom_Bruise: No, this is Patrick
Didero: @NicoTheSly Most of the game has been this level of weird
Didero: Dude, people can have multiple last names
NicoTheSly: Sam, I'm your father :)
wildpeaks: well
nullvoid8: thankfully, Cliff/Mads is not our father
sydnius: my confirmation name is “Lucius”
plummeting_sloth: yes, which is why you have the last name of Bridges
TheMerricat: @nullvoid8 ....
Didero: Traded a baby for a dog tag, I see
accountmadeforants: "Alright, guess I'll give you this baby in return"
plummeting_sloth: we are very lucky we didn't have the last name of, like, Smasher or something. That would have really messed with our predestination
wench_tacular: just hug it out
X_modem: I never have bb before noon.
beowuuf: if we just told him our names
PharaohBender27: But PATHOS
nullvoid8: @TheMerricat I didn't think that was a problematic statement?
sydnius: lrrFINE
Didero: Don't noisily dematerialize so close to my ear! I could've gotten hearing damage!
TheMerricat: @nullvoid8 it's not. You'll just learn something soon. :P
TXC2: Die hardman has a FACE!
Rhynerd: It’s die hardman’s face!
nullvoid8: @TheMerricat I've finished the game, I already now everything :P
sydnius: omg he’s an obstetrician
plummeting_sloth: WEll, I'm glad you liked that Deadman
TheMerricat: LOL
Genie_M: 3715
nullvoid8: anyway, I have to go now. See you in the VODs.
Genie_M: yipes
TheMerricat: Have a good one @nullvoid8
TXC2: so long nullvoid8 stay safe
PsychoI3oy: that's just shy of a gallon of blood, right?
TXC2: a B for BB
wildpeaks: as far as people in this game are concerne, america is the world
Tom_Bruise: the B for BB Back riBs
beowuuf: sergeHi bye nullvoid8 and also sergeHi future nullvoid8!
plummeting_sloth: that's basically a gallon of blood
Rhynerd: Enough to kill you three times, right?
niccus: yeah you pretty much recycled yourself
NicoTheSly: We lost almost 4 Sams worth of blood.
plummeting_sloth: that is a Taratino amount of blood
Didero: Apparently humans have about 4,500 to 5,500 mL of blood in their entire body
TXC2: we used half of a normal person blood
lirazel64: You have a lot of toys.
NicoTheSly: The health bar has 1000 ml, though :(
Genie_M: a normal blood drive donates 450ml of blood
Genie_M: and losing 1500-ish makes you unconcious
Tom_Bruise: You THINK?
plummeting_sloth: ah, so that's how they extrapolated getting across the lake
Tom_Bruise: We didn't come this far for you to THINK, Sam!
Didero: Oh my god, Sam is very dim-witted, isn't he?
wildpeaks: hey hey, Sam isn't the sharpest tool in the shed
Rhynerd: Sam’s being a dumb
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun we've assumed that.... we don't know it yet ;)
plummeting_sloth: It didn't seem like he was trying to hurt us... ya know... after you stopped shooting at us
Tom_Bruise: Sam Porter Bridges, as sharp as the hammer that built those bridges
TXC2: Sam is pickiing up the idot ball here to keep the plot going
sydnius: is sam Chris’s dad? similarly dense
TXC2: *idiot
Didero: Being shot at repeatedly IS the internationally recognised gesture of wanting a friendly chat
TheThromborax: knowledge is slippery in this game
wench_tacular: ominous
plummeting_sloth: once he took a gallon of blood out of me, he really calmed down
theRomanticPast: his scarf is on point
PharaohBender27: Got bad news for you there, dude
Didero: That's one of Cliff's dolls, no?
margravetech: <message deleted>do u kno da wey
TheMerricat: That is a doll that Cliff had witi him, yes.
Genie_M: Didero yup
sydnius: a tile doll
plummeting_sloth: ah man... you had a sick beard. don't cover that up
Rhynerd: Higgs had a doll like that too, right?
Genie_M: now there's a thing
plummeting_sloth: "And the thing about ghosts... apparently you can shoot them"
wench_tacular: now that you mention it..
wildpeaks: we also saw such a doll instead of Lou when we came from the dead back last time
aWabbajack: lrrPAUL awabbaCheeseBB time!
Genie_M: wait Paul
sydnius: 💀💀💀
plummeting_sloth: so you were 25% correct.
wildpeaks: just when you thought her sister-wife vibe wasn't weird enough
beowuuf: i guess sam split pretty quickly from bridget?
sydnius: sunning herself, even with fair skin
Trashweazel: was this guys silly mask ever explained?
TXC2: lot of looking right at the camera today
Didero: There's still no explanation for why this dude is wearing a mask, right?
TheMerricat: @Trashweazel it will be eventually.
wench_tacular: dun dun dun
Trashweazel: cool
X_modem: +1 wildpeaks
plummeting_sloth: man, I just noticed his mas can open when he talks, but it doesn't do it all the time and that's super weird
beowuuf: txc2: yeah, it's been happening a lot more recently and it's a little offputting...
Trashweazel: what a silly silly mask
PharaohBender27: So then who's *Sam's* mother?
wildpeaks: *gasp* a mystery
LurkerSpine: I mean, adoption exists
TXC2: also that's 2 women in this game that can't have children
LurkerSpine: but Amelie and Bridget look exactly the same
TheMerricat: How can eyes see if Mirrors aren't reall!
Trashweazel: ohh Kojima, you don’t seem to like woman
Genie_M: and this is what you saw there
electra310: Everyone's always stealing Sam's blood
theRomanticPast: man this game is pretty
Tom_Bruise: Dude, there are legal stipulation under which a mutiny can be justified Die-Hardman, haven't you seen the Caine Mutiny?
redhorn144 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 24 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, redhorn144! (Today's storm count: 4)
sydnius: Beaches the movie was more upbeat
electra310: If you never tried dying, how do you know you can't repatriate?
plummeting_sloth: ah, so that's why he wears the mask. It's an affectation cause he doesn't have a plot relevant ability
X_modem: I'm just a simple caveman lawyer...
PharaohBender27: @Tom_Bruise No. He was too busy trying to locate the captain's strawberries while that was playing Kappa
wench_tacular: yes
TheMerricat: Sam.
NeoSilverThorn: Yes.
PharaohBender27: Por que no los dos?
Rhynerd: Both
wildpeaks: even if you have to wear a mask, why would you model teeth too
NicoTheSly: Both?
Genie_M: yes
TXC2: "Bridges the Sam?" :D
NicoTheSly: Neither?
plummeting_sloth: It's hard to know, Paul, because THEY KEEP USING THE SAME 10 TERMS FOR A BUNCH OF THINGS
KV1NN4: Bridges The Sam is my Mountain Goats cover band
PharaohBender27: @wildpeaks Consistency?
TheAinMAP: Dang.
wildpeaks: plot happened
NicoTheSly: "Lovely to see you too Sam"
beowuuf: sam, you're your own mother
v_nome: Is her name Fragile?
Rhynerd: Yes
wildpeaks: yup
electra310: These people really bury the lede on plot-relevant information
v_nome: Kojima pls
lirazel64: got to go...
jessieimproved: I so want to know what happens but this is absolutely exhausting Kojima
Genie_M: Sam always though to be
PharaohBender27: @v_nome This is a game that also has characters called "Die Hard-man," "Dead-man," and "Heart-man."
Didero: Why are we trusting the compulsive liar?
TXC2: "same"
KinoGami: i tabbed back in at a really weird time
plummeting_sloth: wait... how... how did he just do that?
Didero: Why can he hold a doll if he's a hologram?
electra310: Creepy little girls everywhere?
plummeting_sloth: aren;t they holograms in two different locations?
electra310: He's with Fragile
TXC2: Didero he's hard light
wildpeaks: :D
TheMerricat: @plummeting_sloth after ditching Paul, Fragile teleported them all to the same location.
X_modem: I think they're both at Capitol Knot City
Tom_Bruise: Maaaybe they're the same person? Iunno, I kinda zoned out during Die-Hardman's monologue
beowuuf: LOL, how many roads must a man walk down, sam? Is it.... 42?
Rhynerd: Hard Lightman is my favorite member of Bridges
wildpeaks: perfect :D
PsychoI3oy: Rhynerd, you're thinking of Portal 2
TheThromborax: Sam is pretty gullible
Genie_M: Heartman is the main theorist behind EE
sydnius: is… megaman in DS?
plummeting_sloth: well, we found out the world was super in danger. Time to pound some Monsters, take a shower, maybe had a nap
electra310: He looks 100000% done
beowuuf: seriously, a delivery mission during the endgame?
PharaohBender27: Would you say she's . . . standing to death? Kappa
TheMerricat: Whelp chat, time for more pizza delivery!
Genie_M: we could visit Peter Englert's home
Genie_M: it has lots of lore
beowuuf: extra, and the world could depend on this. anchovies.
accountmadeforants: "That Pizza's connected to the Beach, there's a pizza place there, it's to die for."
Rhynerd: wasn’t it just Higgs that was asking for the pizzas?
TXC2: Rhynerd yes
TheMerricat: Ah you might want to read the junk dealer's email :)

saucemaster5000: look one man's molehill is another man's mountain. or pizza
wildpeaks: I have a feeling we won't finish the game in this stream
electra310: He is really enjoying that Monster-brand Energy Beverage
Lord_ZYRK: "And a 2 liter of Coke" "We only have Pepsi" "Well you'll need to go to Knot Cola City back out West to get some Coke then"
Tom_Bruise: Maybe this game will go on for actual factual ever
Tom_Bruise: None of us can possibly know at this point
frnknstn: is that our final monster?
wildpeaks: I'm amazed Sam still has a functionning liver with the amount of monster he drinks
sydnius: DS2: Red Bull Edition
TheMerricat: LOL
v_nome: @v_nome I mean previous characters have been Hot Coldman, Pain, Sorrow, etc. So that's par for the course. Somehow Fragile seems too silly to me though.
Lord_ZYRK: It turns out that it was man who was the greatest energy drink of all. . .
wildpeaks: maybe next game will have a character named Subtle
PharaohBender27: @Genie_M If we have to go another session, lrrPAUL will tie with lrrCAMERON 's Bloodborne playthrough for second-longest PiF
wench_tacular: c'est la vie
TheMerricat: @v_nome I prefer Fragile over Quiet.
electra310: Oh, the girl we carried on our back to him dumped him? That's terrible. :D
X_modem: Also, along the way can you pick up some garlic knots?
Lord_ZYRK: She didn't just dump him, she traversed hostile terrain she wasn't willing to cross to get to him just to get away
Didero: So Fragile teleported literally everybody East, except the single person that actually NEEDED to be there?
TheMerricat: @Didero yep.
Genie_M: not really
dkosa: they would just ask for knots to confuse you
Aenir798: He's probably 30.
wildpeaks: plot power ran out
Genie_M: time is also an illusion, because it's always daytime
Didero: This seems like bad planning on Fragile's part
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB
Tom_Bruise: Now for a quick stop at Garlic Knot City for the pizzas Heartman order, and we're all set
Lord_ZYRK: Well, she didn't run out of power so much as the Beaches got real fucky
aWabbajack: Happy B-Day Chat!
NicoTheSly: So we can take Lou out of the box?
sydnius: @tom_bruise that’s an amazing pizza chain name
TheAinMAP: guyjudgeBirthday
electra310: Lou was probably in the tank six years by then?
jessieimproved: Yeah the BB procedure is supposed to halt development so it could be 6 years
Rhynerd: Well, in the meta sense, our goal here is to stop extinction event #6, so...
wench_tacular: it's good to help the needy
TheThromborax: what, no keepsake?
Lobstawaffles: Don't buy from an assault rifle breeder. Adopt from your local weapon center.
Didero: If the BB has been in that tank for 6 years, what makes Cliff think he'll be 'born' soon?
NicoTheSly: At the beginning someone mentioned that BBs have an expiry date... I mean they serve for some amount of years. 5 or 6.
Tom_Bruise: So nice that people are willing to reach out and give their guns to those in need
accountmadeforants: Can't assault alone, an assault rifle deserves a friend.
X_modem: It's nice to see people still care about charity!a
aWabbajack: no swimming allowed
Lord_ZYRK: It's a good idea to clean out your weapons cache each spring and donate any assault rifles you don't use anymore to those in need :)
Genie_M: final stretch
TheThromborax: yeah, but she needs, like, a billion
sydnius: the Goodfwill gun dept is the best
PharaohBender27: So, no fording in chest-deep rivers, then?
wench_tacular: pizza x tamagochi
Didero: Time to steal a car then!
Didero: Does getting rained on count as getting the bugs wet?
Tom_Bruise: let's just requisition this trike before everything goes to fuck
Genie_M: long range can probably take you home in one stretch
X_modem: It rhymes...
Genie_M: yes, but you'll only visit now after the endings
Genie_M: that's when the map opens up
aWabbajack: Keep on keeping on !
TheMerricat: Yes though, Higgs left us a plethora of easter eggs in his shelter.
NeoSilverThorn: Country roads, take me home/To the place/I belong...
sydnius: fragile is. X=X
PharaohBender27: Oh GREAT
aWabbajack: there used to be offensive names now they get ****'d out
wench_tacular: well that's just great
NicoTheSly: "everything has been destroyed, rides over a bridge"
PharaohBender27: katesFine lrrFINE tqsFine
aWabbajack: I mean like sweary words like poop
aWabbajack: or darn
TheMerricat: @NicoTheSly everything WE built.
sydnius: dagnabbit?
CaptainSpam: So for the endgame, they just reset the world?
Genie_M: just bike home
Genie_M: quick and easy
aWabbajack: they made your pre-made structures missing just for this part
aWabbajack: for story reasons
Tom_Bruise: Apparently all that infrastructure we built was putting the game on Easy-mode, and the game wants to give us a final challenge?
aWabbajack: you may get a lucky other players zipline
Lord_ZYRK: What, the chiral printers have to phone home or they're unusable? Who made them, Playstation designers? lrrBEEJ
wildpeaks: come to think of it, how does Lou even cry ? they're floating in a tank of liquid
CaptainSpam: I was hoping for something more like a nation-spanning final battle that was dynamic based on what you built over the course of the game.
X_modem: That's why he said you'll have to rely on other porters.
Tom_Bruise: Yo I don't think this is the correct route
Rhynerd: Going much like how Sam’s story started. Driving a trike through the rain
sydnius: Rock Biker Legend
TheMerricat: @Lord_ZYRK tbf part of the whole "we have infinite bandwidth to print stuff" was the fact that they were using the chiral networks to store all their data. No network, no plans.
NicoTheSly: They said "do not submerge", no word about damage though :P
TheMerricat: 50% damage
TXC2: Now is not the time BTs
wench_tacular: well poop
aWabbajack: Deja Vu!
Tom_Bruise: Hoof it, it's the ghosts!
Rhynerd: Oh no
Didero: Just drive fast so they can't drop down
Rhynerd: Oh hey,
Tom_Bruise: Oh that's probably fine
Genie_M: yup, final stretch - bikes are fast though
sydnius: seems a shame they didn’t license “who’ll stop the rain”
TheThromborax: oh, they're gold
wildpeaks: chiral wifi vs bluetooth (BT)
TheThromborax: "neat"
CaKnuckleguy: All-ish terrain vehicle-ish
aWabbajack: you can hop with the jump button too
wildpeaks: all terrains, just not this one
TheThromborax: well at least Paul didn't give away all of his guns
X_modem: This feels familiar.
TheThromborax: that would have been bad
Didero: All Terrain* Bike
TXC2: is this an Any terrain vehicle ?
Aenir798: I'm not convinced this is faster than walking.
aWabbajack: most terrain
CaptainSpam: Some terrain
beowuuf: There's a terrain type called 'all' that this trike is *fantastic* at
aWabbajack: MTV vehicle
sydnius: this explains Amelie’s All-Terrain Heels
niccus: there's no terrain here
CaptainSpam: A terrain
Didero: @Aenir798 But he can sit down now!
KinoGami: i've been on this road in BC before
KinoGami: KappaHD
beowuuf: this is the same confusing naming scheme as umbilical, etc :p
PharaohBender27: lrrSPOOP
TheThromborax: @beowuuf "All brand flat surfaces!"
beowuuf: squiding hell
wench_tacular: shenanigans!
Tom_Bruise: Oh joy, it's Ebrietas!
beowuuf: yup!
wildpeaks: this package is gonna get submerged, isn't it
KinoGami: so this is the first time tuning into this game and that seems bad
TXC2: yeap, daddy don't like that :p
Genie_M: this is not water
NeoSilverThorn: You have got to be squidding me.
sydnius: not now Cthulu
Rhynerd: At least the cryptobiotes weren’t submerged
TheMerricat: You can skip this boss.
aWabbajack: have to escape
Genie_M: just escape
aWabbajack: indeed @TheMerricat
beowuuf: if chat was you we'd just escape :p
Genie_M: no, this is not water
TheThromborax: buildings are probably your best bet
Zaghrog: this isn't water
sydnius: gmta lrrPAUL
Tom_Bruise: Just double-jump across the watar, get the frack outta here
Lord_ZYRK: Maybe if you're on rocks it can't find you, like an extra fucky graboid
KinoGami: it has tentacles AND fingers? that's just too many squigly bits
Genie_M: it works surprisingly well
aWabbajack: lrrCHKN lrrCHKN lrrCHKN
Didero: Does this mean we can go back to our bike?
NicoTheSly: A truck!
beowuuf: !badadvice
LRRbot: Avoid the glow.
X_modem: Parkour!
Lord_ZYRK: Really threaded the needle through those rocks, though
TheThromborax: anything good in the box?
TheThromborax: shotgun?
sydnius: !findquote truck
LRRbot: Quote #3401: "Your mother was a Tonka truck!" —Ben [2016-09-14]
PharaohBender27: Does it just sense anytime you try to use a vehicle?
KinoGami: that's what i was wondering
wench_tacular: catchin' air
Didero: Anti-gravity jets activate!
TheMerricat: Paul has me on the edge of my seat chat.
c142: This man is driving like an absolute madlad
Didero: Cargo container ruined?
Genie_M: THIS is water though
Tom_Bruise: ruh-roh
TheThromborax: just the container
wildpeaks: well fudge
Didero: Do you have a spare box? :p
TXC2: poo butts
NicoTheSly: At least they got washed
c142: Box Repair Spray is OP baby
sydnius: Face it, America is allBt nao
TheThromborax: look for spray in postboxes?
PsychoI3oy: is that a TF shelter just outside?
Lord_ZYRK: Yeah, the notification popped before you hit the water there
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun doesn't sleeping in the personal room repair cagro?
wench_tacular: go on, it will help save the world..
Didero: Maybe they have a less damaged bike here too
c142: You could just repair the bike there ?
TheMerricat: You can't make stuff, no network
NicoTheSly: There was a shelter outside
NicoTheSly: Didn't we see a shroom?
wench_tacular: yay
wench_tacular: good planning
Zaghrog: doesn't a shelter need lvl 2 to repair?
sydnius: a scout!
Tom_Bruise: Thanks, Past-Paul, for having Future-Paul's back!
PharaohBender27: tqsHype katesHype
v_nome: Thanks, past Sam
TXC2: just as we planed Kappa
TheMerricat: and you can't use PCC's because the network is down.
wench_tacular: axe axe baby
Genie_M: shiny
X_modem: Master strategist!
sydnius: fabreze solves everything
Didero: I feel like there should be a more efficient way to get the spray on your boxes
wildpeaks: shiny and chrome
c142: what happens if you get that sheiß on your skin monkaS
Genie_M: good enough
sydnius: take that, ozone!
aWabbajack: mshBurgerHype mshHype kaatHype
NicoTheSly: Told you, Paul :P
beowuuf: look, game, meet ups even 5% of the way here :p
sydnius: ^/^
aWabbajack: lrrSPOOP
CaptainSpam: This game does NOT want you to go more than a couple seconds without some UI thing interrupting you, does it?
aWabbajack: Ghosts hate water
X_modem: The timefall shelter was the the whole time: Master Kojima Plot Twist (TM)
TXC2: oh come on Game
sydnius: oh look a call fon deadman
KinoGami: huh
wildpeaks: go go gadget-o-legs
accountmadeforants: "Legs, activate!"
NeoSilverThorn: "Okay, Lou, here's what we do instead: FUCKING LEG IT!"
Tom_Bruise: Man, this game really doesn't want us to finish it today huh?
beowuuf: fine game, we didn't want to have fun anyway!
Didero: stressed baby
SK__Ren: Lou needs a hug
wildpeaks: yeah we definitely aren't going to finish today
Genie_M: now soothe lou
sydnius: lou needs Teletubbies
Tom_Bruise: Lou just needs a juicebox and a nap
wildpeaks: oh good, more obstacles
Didero: But Lou is already IN a juice box
MAPBoardgames: Is there a terrorist occupying those boots?
wildpeaks: forbidden snack
beowuuf: Lou's new name is Cry Hardm'n
wildpeaks: :D
CaptainSpam: You non-lethaled them to death!
NicoTheSly: Our battery is low too :(
sydnius: keke
Genie_M: battery
TXC2: not sure that's legally defensible Paul

Tom_Bruise: Pull, Duchess!
TXC2: hello Tripleyew welcome
wildpeaks: woohoo
PharaohBender27: lrrGOAT !
Didero: Can we go give Lou a hug now?
accountmadeforants: Guess we'll never find out if you'd end up in a standing tomb of your own making.
TheThromborax: rest in shelter or BB is going to go into AutoTax
Tripleyew: aw, little heart bubbles
Tom_Bruise: Yo the box is deteriorating in the rain, no?
sydnius: @thethromborax yay child credit
Genie_M: good enough for the final stretch
Didero: zipline! :O
Didero: aw

Genie_M: Lou likes jumpy jumpy
sydnius: lou loves the long jump
NeoSilverThorn: I'm pretty sure the only reason Sam isn't screaming at the top of his lungs on this particular stretch is because he's too busy gasping for air.
wildpeaks: oh good
CaptainSpam: Oh, for the love of...
sydnius: he know’s pizza’s waitin
Tom_Bruise: Damnit, game
Genie_M: you walked into this
TXC2: kinda laying it on thick here game
PharaohBender27: katesScared
Tom_Bruise: Just let us beat the game, game!
KinoGami: well this is all sorts of nope
NicoTheSly: That's just mean
wildpeaks: no, game, we don't have time to pet the cryptolions
Didero: oh Sam moved 3 meters south now we can't attack him anymore
sydnius: PASS
Genie_M: why go on the shore?
Aenir798: I just realized something. We've seen Lou control the shoulderarm thing to block bullets. Does that mean he's the one happily clapping when the ghosts go away?
PsychoI3oy: Aenir798, yes
TheMerricat: Yes
Didero: Oh I didn't even realise it was Lou controlling the arm thingy
sydnius: Sam’s fish and chip shoppe missing a big opportunity
TheMerricat: Shelter off to your right if you need repair.
qu0rk: What is on your head
Genie_M: they work in kind of a symbiosis - if that's a thing between a machine and an unborn
TheMerricat: Otter hat @qu0rk
qu0rk: cute
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun network is down so you only have LOS.
NeoSilverThorn: Sam Porter Bridges is definitely having an "I should have stayed in bed" kind of day.
X_modem: All these fights, surly *this* is the end game... There couldn't be 1 to 3 more hours after *this*... *taps on mic to the sound of reverb*
X_modem: The system is down
CaptainSpam: Oh, come ON.
jessieimproved: oh noz tar
Didero: scheduled bossfight?
wench_tacular: really game? again?

Genie_M: i came with an offroad skelly
jessieimproved: looka lika boss fight
wench_tacular: that's a biggin
v_nome: Jecht?
X_modem: I finished this game at 4am on a work night because of how close I perpetually thought I was done.
BusTed: Something's wrong with that whale.
sydnius: El Gigante!
aWabbajack: we will have a whale of a time
NeoSilverThorn: *Crap*. It's the whale from the Wellerman shanty!
KinoGami: ah good. terror whale
Didero: No, that's a whale
CAKHost: Whale?
ContingentCat: um
beowuuf: there's always a bigger fish
qu0rk: B I G F I S H
wench_tacular: too many teeth!!!!!
CAKHost: Er
aWabbajack: Sin?! @v_nome
MAPBoardgames: TEETH!
Genie_M: hi!
beowuuf: ok, gaping whale, this is dark souls now
CAKHost: ee
saberpilot: it's MOBY DICK
Tom_Bruise: Oh no, it's BEEF TEEF
jessieimproved: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Didero: More like Smokey Dick, since it's all black
Caldurin: Stab it in its secret weakspot, I guess.
tcberner: good thing you donated those rifles ^^
wildpeaks: time to pet the floating whale with our bullets
qu0rk: what does the otter hat do
KinoGami: is it's weak spot inside of it? :P
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, this is hella SotC music
sydnius: …strand?
wildpeaks: daww we're playing catch with it
SK__Ren: oh look a Quad Launcher
CAKHost: Hopefully it has a weak spot you can hit for massive damange?
Tom_Bruise: "Auw, who threw that?"
wench_tacular: down the gullet!
Didero: "Exciting boss fight! Ok, here is literally exactly what you need to do" Game, let us figure it out ourselves
jessieimproved: seems like a reasonable assumption
KinoGami: does it release a fog that erases you from existence? Kappa
sydnius: kill it with microplastics
NotCainNorAbel: if someone punched you inside of the mouth...
TXC2: that worked for Jonah Kappa
saucemaster5000: Kill it with oil pollution
TXC2: saucemaster5000 ooooof
wench_tacular: open up big boy
Didero: He's peeing out of his mouth
CAKHost: Why do I feel that the mouth is the weak point...
Tom_Bruise: oh and it shoots pee
wildpeaks: this fight is going whale
NeoSilverThorn: @TXC2 "Sir, I wouldn't exactly think him the best inspiration." </JARVIS>
niccus: whaser
Aenir798: Dr. Evil?
accountmadeforants: From the creators of "Sharks with lasers on their heads": "Whales with lasers in their mouths"!
TXC2: NeoSilverThorn :D
wench_tacular: probably discarded in the ocean
Genie_M: I blame Higgs
CAKHost: Darn it Amelie!
PharaohBender27: Look, the whales have to fight back *somehow*
qu0rk: Its a giant oil laser whale
KV1NN4: lrrCOW
wildpeaks: wowser
Aenir798: Dr. Evil couldn't get sharks, settled for whales.
X_modem: Space whaaaaaale I saw a lunar eclipse...
KV1NN4: settled... or upgraded?
Didero: Why do we have to fight this whale? Can't we just let it enjoy swimming around?
Tom_Bruise: Iunno, it might eat one of our Garlic Knot Cities
Genie_M: your shoulder thingy shows which direction it iw
CAKHost: I feel it would be more fitting if the whale spawn boat structures instead of buildings
Genie_M: is
wildpeaks: I think we barely tickle it
beowuuf: whale bad!
niccus: you're gonna need a bigger blood bag
TXC2: "that's at least 20ft long!" "25, 3 tonnes of him"
X_modem: Chip damage the musical!
KinoGami: surely there must be a weak point
TheMerricat: yep that's the weak points,
beowuuf: can we use harsh language?
Aenir798: Can we throw a grenade in his mouth
Didero: Or throw something in his mouth, I feel, but that seems like a difficult target
qu0rk: How can the whale fly
wench_tacular: can we climb up him?
sydnius: tweet insults it hates that
KinoGami: because it believes in itself
CAKHost: Unless the whole BT thing is that they are made of collective dead humans, because apparently only they matter for all of this Death Stranding Stuff
cuttlefishman: @qu0rk pretty well, it seems like
beowuuf: smug superiority given it's lack of weak spot might be allowing it to float above us
beowuuf: *its
budbjinxed: @qu0rk all whales can fly
wildpeaks: :D
wench_tacular: quad rockets solves most things
aWabbajack: Two to pick up
qu0rk: o
qu0rk: wow
Didero: Most whales are just afraid of heights
CAKHost: If the game gives you a quadruple rocket launcher, you say thank you!
LordZarano: The hot new game from the team that bought you "Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When They Roar" it's "Ghost Whales That Shoot Beams And Can Fly"
Didero: Octal rocket launcher?
wench_tacular: awesome
MAPBoardgames: Awesome?
PsychoI3oy: octuple rocket launchers
TXC2: Chat the Whale from Hitchhiker's guide is not indicative of normal Whale behaviour Kappa
SquareDotCube: octo-rocket
Genie_M: lots of damage
v_nome: Otto. You call it Otto.
sydnius: 0xFF
wildpeaks: are we going to duel wieldi quadruple rocket launchers ?
Tripleyew: is that some sort of beaver-helmet?
TheMerricat: @TXC2 that whale didn't fly so much as fall gracefully.
wench_tacular: so much littering
beowuuf: oh yeah. tbh is in it's finally hours, must remember to check it out
X_modem: Duel wielding quad rocket launchers, I like how you think Paul!
beowuuf: tripleyew: an otter hat conana o'brien gave ius
Didero: @Tripleyew It's an otter hoodie
TXC2: TheMerricat it was the Buzz Lightyear of whales Kappa
tastymcnuggett: Is there going to be a Friday Night Paper fight tonight?

beowuuf: $20 singleton pauper tonight in fnpf
wildpeaks: did it regain health ? I could have sworn we did some damage earlier
cuttlefishman: Who
cuttlefishman: s $20?
tastymcnuggett: @TXC2 thx!
wildpeaks: the spice must flooow
beowuuf: @cuttlefishman yeah, buy a deck at the lgs for $20
wildpeaks: nice
SK__Ren: I feel like we were denied some critical, need to know information...
Metric_Furlong: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:43:03.
wench_tacular: point blank with a rocket launcher
beowuuf: we only need to know it if we can't figure it out ourselves, clearly :p
sydnius: sam is clearly bene gesserite
Didero: What does 'Change ammo type' do?
KinoGami: clearly you need to go find the stinger missiles
Didero: Does this rocket launcher have a secret stash of alternative rockets?
aWabbajack: blood bullets or explody ammo @Didero
TheMerricat: @Didero switches from normal rounds to rounds covered in sams blood
PsychoI3oy: Didero, blood splodey vs non-blood splodey
qu0rk: Are you able to leave the whale peacfully?
PsychoI3oy: the former being more effective against BTs
aWabbajack: some weapons have 3/4 types too
NeoSilverThorn: And now, Paul learns what ODOT learned in 1970: It takes a *lot* of explosives to shred a whale.
MAPBoardgames: Scoped Skeleton?
Genie_M: grenades have splodey - shocky - bloody modes
aWabbajack: the grenade launcher has slippery shots, knockout gas, explosive fire modes
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun do you want any hints on what the wiki says the weak points are?
KinoGami: god now all i can think of is that decomposing whale on the beach
KinoGami: and the poor people who had to cut it open
Didero: The big stompy dude had golden weakspots, but the golden parts seem hard to reach on this whale
cuttlefishman: I think it's just a big whale
SK__Ren: I just saw bright gold on the end of it's tail
keroan0: He does seem to have some yellow glowy bits potentially?
Penguino_Rojo: When did Audrey 2 become a whale? or is this Audrey 3?
LordZarano: That reminds me, Rusty Lake is 100% off on Steam for about 2 hours now https://store.steampowered.com/app/435120/Rusty_Lake_Hotel/
TheThromborax: right in the cloaca
BasilHunter: there's. antoher quad launcher to pick up
wench_tacular: that's new
KinoGami: uh
accountmadeforants: Oh, the spine is people
Tom_Bruise: Why is it sending Holy Divers down at us?
sydnius: LFG Huge Whale
Didero: And a 10 from all but the Russian judges for the classic Golden Whale Dive
NeoSilverThorn: Somehow, I don't quite think this is what Seabound meant in their song about "soul divers".
wildpeaks: ahhh Seabound <3
keroan0: Whale people, whale people. Tastes like whale, looks like people
TheMerricat: nade launcher might do well too.
TheThromborax: aim for the mouth?
beowuuf: wo-ah, we're half way there, wo-ah, whale flaps in the ai-ir
NeoSilverThorn: @wildpeaks I see you too are an individual of culture.
Genie_M: Paul never used grenade launchers yet, i'm not sure this is the moment to learn it
wildpeaks: even saw him live :)
Alephred: Take my blood, we'll make it swear.
accountmadeforants: I think it's just doing bullet time when it opens its mouth, and it happens to open it mouth when it emerges.
KinoGami: did someone die there?
wildpeaks: (one of the handy thing living in germany)
sydnius: those naked guyz are great
budbjinxed: blood bags for the blood god, skull bags for the skull throne
Didero: My rocket launchers! And, less importantly, these life-saving cryptobites!
wildpeaks: maybe if we tell the whale we're not plancton it will let us leave
TheThromborax: what are the gold rockets, I forget
Didero: Am I being too critical if I say that this bossfight is kinda shit? >_>
wildpeaks: the sleeper must awaken
beowuuf: so we just need to scream at it?
TXC2: Didero no, this is kind of a drag
wildpeaks: yeah this fight overstays its welcome
Didero: At least the stream makes it fun, but if I was playing this single-player I'd be annoyed
TheThromborax: I remember it being much more interesting than it is to watch
sydnius: this epic battle between rockets and leaving sam alone is timeless
NeoSilverThorn: @Didero No, that's kind of par for the course for Kojima's games. A lot of his final boss fights are lackluster.
Tom_Bruise: Maybe we can set the console's systemclock ahead a couple of hours to skip this bossfight
keroan0: Some days, you just gotta swim around, kill a dude, you know. Taxes. Laundry

saucemaster5000: I kinda liked the ridiculous MGS2 final boss...
Didero: Battery's almost empty again
Nommii77 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 64 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Nommii77! (Today's storm count: 9)
wildpeaks: too bad we can't fulton the whale
beowuuf: presumably this will be like higgs first form, in that if we get killed we just come back and it will be at the same health?
TheThromborax: on harder difficulties, are you also being harassed by the lions, I wonder
Tom_Bruise: We can only hope
sydnius: is this an allegory to Moby Dick? lrrWOW
Didero: This boss isn't very good at its job
TheThromborax: that would be more exciting
SK__Ren: What was that attack?
wildpeaks: good thing we have the rocker launcher at least, this would take forever otherwise
MrSVCD: Cute Hat/Hood <3
KinoGami: i appreciate how this rocket launcher looks like it's meant for commercial use
TXC2: is it me? or does the whale song sound like Bille Eilish?
sydnius: whale: do a barrel roll!@!
X_modem: @txc2 I'm a whaaaaaaaalllleee guy. DUH!
Didero: Hey, you turned the purple off
TheExactSame: I wonder if there's some taboo about where it's not ok to hit this creatures that we just don't know about
TheExactSame: like. that's just below the belt, man
PsychoI3oy: i think that was an empty one you dropped
NeoSilverThorn: @wildpeaks It's still dragging even with the rocket launchers.
Aenir798: These fights are just so...boring.
sydnius: in beauty vision offers much
Aenir798: The whale is just a massive bullet sponge. There's nothing interesting happening.
Didero: Oh no, the boss realised what its job is
accountmadeforants: Yeah, Lou, us too.
KV1NN4: is this whale evena emtaphor for something?
KinoGami: probably
wildpeaks: I guess they thought making it a bullet sponge would make it more memorable, but it's more annoying than anything really
Genie_M: you're low on blood
Genie_M: eat cryptos
Genie_M: you have some in your inventory
TXC2: the Whale represents Kojima's love of padding :p
wildpeaks: :D
Didero: Wait, was our health regenerating? How is Sam creating new blood that quickly?
TheThromborax: I just realized that there is no way to finish the game in the time left in the stream
sydnius: it does help CRTs ship well
LordZarano: Is this boss just a rocket sponge or is there more to it?
Boon_33: yarr!
Genie_M: yay!
wildpeaks: if they wanted a long fight, having different phases would ahve been more memorable
Tom_Bruise: this thing better drop a full heart container
KinoGami: that is an anticlimatic finish?
sydnius: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
wench_tacular: poor whale
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Tripleyew: Shai-hulud is back on the menu?
Didero: @LordZarano There were some weakspots on its back, but basically just a bullet sponge
PsychoI3oy: 👍
wildpeaks: oh thank goodness
niccus: the whale turned to ps classic knack
accountmadeforants: And then three more show up and you have to fight them too, I know what you're like, Kojima.
TXC2: where whales even for eating?
Genie_M: chiralium for days
Didero: Maybe now is a good time for a break, Paul?
PharaohBender27: tqsHype lrrHORN_HF lrrGOAT lrrHORN katesHype

TheMerricat: @LordZarano I think they were expeceting you to use the nade launcher, which would let you lob nades onto it's top instead of having to snipe at the spine.
v_nome: There's gold in them there whales!
dkosa: the chiral crystals look like hands
beowuuf: uuuuh... nice to see you too deadman
sydnius: likes from hugewhale: 1
Tom_Bruise: oh right the box of creepy bugs is also almost busted
Genie_M: battery
Genie_M: lou
Zaghrog: stamina?
nutty03: Hey Paul big fan of you and kojima
Didero: Charge up your legs and your baby
sydnius: thx **********
cuttlefishman: Paul, what are your irl opinions on Monster
X_modem: Good place to save.
TXC2: charge with Electricity #NotSponsered
Didero: Save and take a break, yeah
TheMerricat: So I think that was officially the last scripted boss fight chat, the rest is cut scenes and walking between them.
wildpeaks: we're definitely not finishing today, but now I wonder if we'll even reach the credits today at all
NicoTheSly: It's still 8% of worms
Tom_Bruise: well screw it, she can take 8% of those creepy bugs or leave it
wildpeaks: mostly-good worms :D
TheThromborax: no not there
wench_tacular: fresh and juicy
Tom_Bruise: Those are pocket-bugs, you can't expect her to take thoes
Zaghrog: this is not the destination
Genie_M: many boss fights, and terrorists and....
Didero: why even HAVE two terminals
Zaghrog: time to spray
TXC2: right this was the first ish mission
Genie_M: remember the first time when you couldn't find your way there?
Didero: Was this where we burned the corpse of our mom?
sydnius: Giovanni’s pizza i remember it well
TXC2: Didero no, but this is where we started from to do that
wench_tacular: about that....
Tom_Bruise: All 8% of them
Genie_M: well...
wildpeaks: woohoo, not submerged
Metric_Furlong: good enough
Tom_Bruise: Cs get degrees man
wench_tacular: it's been a challenging trip
NeoSilverThorn: That works.
TXC2: C get Degrees
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
sydnius: D for Diploma
Metric_Furlong: also chat, while we're waiting
Tom_Bruise: F for Fuck it.
PharaohBender27: Huh, guess I'm the only one to pick "A Strangely Negative German," but then I'm just guessing wildly here :p
Metric_Furlong: eh, it's early days yet
PharaohBender27: OK going to make myself some lunch because we might have 2 more straight hours before we have to stop for Chillpoint
Metric_Furlong: votes should continue to trickle in as the evening progresses
Metric_Furlong: yeah, it's a full schedule this evening
TXC2: "A strangely negative German" better be about a German who invented photography :p
Metric_Furlong: (also, 4 Furlong Points™ are still available for anyone playing the guessing game)
KV1NN4: i read that as 'strategically negative german'
Metric_Furlong: TXC2 well, I haven't seen it yet so I can't say for certain that it's not about that :p
TXC2: and we're back
cuttlefishman: Paul, Victoria question for you - what is the best pizza place in town?
wildpeaks: welcome back
sydnius: 8%>0% lrrAWESOME
Didero: Wow, harsh, Sam
beowuuf: people! aww, he still doens't like touch :(
TXC2: "the whole team" Mama not pictured
PsychoI3oy: mama is inside locne
TheMerricat: Mama fused with Lockne.
Didero: @TXC2 Mama is inside Lockne, no?
KinoGami: these sure are a lot of words kojima made up
beowuuf: aaron still crying himself to sleep
TheMerricat: lol chat. hive mind.
sydnius: gah she flew Delta
Genie_M: Lockne is one person again
Tom_Bruise: she's in less danger than the guy that can collapse dead any minute
TXC2: I know chat, I'm being Facetious
Aenir798: Is it just me or are frames being lost
MAPBoardgames: Wake up and smell the cryptobyte
Alephred: Say the line.
Didero: Looks good here, Aenir798
cuttlefishman: what is the texture of these cryptobiotes
cuttlefishman: are they like gummi worms
TXC2: Aenir798 seems fine here
Tom_Bruise: oh dangnabbit those creepy bugs are just sensu beans!
TheMerricat: There is a bit of blinking black on my end but I think that's the game, not frame dropping.
beowuuf: i think the screen looks like it's glitching because of the background glitches
Tom_Bruise: waddling creepy sensu beans
Genie_M: I so waited Heartman to just flop over during this scene
Saulens181: I'm thinking its like shrimp-mushroom
wildpeaks: her outfit doesn't seem very comfortable
Aenir798: Refreshing fixed my problem I think
beowuuf: ah, cool
TXC2: shouldn't Heartman also be on a bed?
Tom_Bruise: Yea, this man can literally fall dead at any moment
MAPBoardgames: A kingdom heart?
Didero: Of course Heartman is going on about hearts
Metric_Furlong: he kept dying before he could get around to it Kappa
Rhynerd: Let’s hope he didn’t mute his device
wildpeaks: you'd think someone who only has a short time between his heart stops would talk faster
sydnius: go to harbor freight problem solved
beowuuf: wrng game heartman, this is death stranding not control
Mythdom subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 46 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Mythdom! (Today's storm count: 10)
Rhynerd: Because he’s gonna need to steal fragile’s bed the moment he gets a time warning
wildpeaks: Jesse Faden would have yeeted the entire beach at the whale earlier :D
beowuuf: if it was why did she push him out :p
Didero: I mean, everybody has been making a LOT of stuff up until now, no need for "It's onlya theory" NOW
Aenir798: If that was her objective she didn't need to push us out...
Metric_Furlong: because they needed you to deliver things, obviously
CAKHost: It's the ending of Twilight all over again!
Manae: Death Stranding ending: Stranded... in Death!
wildpeaks: and the other half is "I'm waiting for you at the beach, but let's make it as difficult as possible for you to reach it"
Didero: Maybe Amelie knows you're the only one who can stop her, so that's why she pushed you away?
Tom_Bruise: So Sam now has to justify the existence of humanity to an Elder God hellbent on casting the earth into oblivion? Coolcool.
sydnius: use silly string, Surprise!
wench_tacular: look upon it..
beowuuf: stop spiking the camera with NPCs :(
wildpeaks: Sam, this is not the time to flirt
Didero: where did he put the baby?
v_nome: @Tom_Bruise "I mean yeah, people suck, but have you tried pizza?"
TXC2: "and why should humans live?" "we invented microwave pizza" "Damn he's good"
TheExactSame: is this about myh car?
KV1NN4: Earht of Thesius
sydnius: 🍕🍕🍕
wildpeaks: maybe Amelie needs a good puppy, then she'd never want to end the world because dogs would be sad
Didero: Sam isn't very good at using the right tone for a speech like this
v_nome: @TXC2 High five!
X_modem: I keep throwing it at ghosts.
cuttlefishman: I mean, isn't that basically sniper wolf
CAKHost: Living to the next sunrise is thinking of the future though...?
wench_tacular: eugh, personal growth
Tom_Bruise: Game, you've had enough overly long monologues by now, surely we can move towards and ending now?
saucemaster5000: @TXC2 Elder god would counterpoint by holding up Funkopops
TXC2 high fives v_nome
Genie_M: Tom_Bruise - well...
wildpeaks: "I've gotta deliver" "Sam this isn't the time for puns either, we're having a serious moment" :D
PharaohBender27: Back with lunch - any huge revelations I've missed?
Aenir798: Right, like the alternative to not going and getting stranded, is dying with everyone
Didero: touchy the baby
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB awabbaCheeseBB awabbaCheeseBB
sydnius: I still say the lack of a prepper Psychologist was a missed opportunity
TXC2: Lockne gonna speak now?
Tom_Bruise: Could we get that baby and actual life? Outside of a flask?
keroan0: No, they can't survive outside the pod normally.
Didero: sure, dump the baby on the woman
cuttlefishman: Had this cutscene not gone so long he should've died?
CAKHost: Do the YuGiOh hand smile!
CAKHost: This would be a great time for it!
wildpeaks: dumping it on Mama whose entire character trait is "being a mother"
Invitare: did they ever say what the umbrella was for?
cuttlefishman: This is a pretty standard for Kojima length cutscene
sydnius: Chris Franke swelloooo
X_modem: This Deltoro/Reedus remake of two men and a baby is *weird*
Didero: Headbutt!
TXC2: PharaohBender27 we had to fight a sky whale, so not really
Rhynerd: @cuttlefishman maybe he died for a moment between cuts and everyone waited for him to come back
Alephred: The umbrella is actually a beach tracking device.
LordZarano: Lockne wanted a baby and couldn't have one
TheMerricat: In theory Heartmann's cycle is something like 27 minutes, it's just that in the bunker 27 minutes was every3 minutes
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Oh I did see that, I just meant post-break
Alephred: The umbrella helps Fragile navigate.
CAKHost: Aww :C
Seth_Erickson: a perfect time to come in to the stream I think
Tom_Bruise: Or did it? Nah it didn't... or did it?
wildpeaks: teleportation error, Sam ends up goo
PharaohBender27: Plan B: Just start screaming Kappa
Didero: "Sam's gone, party time!"
sydnius: FindMyAmelie gooo
TXC2: PharaohBender27 oh, Heartman has a theory that Amile is controlling everything
wench_tacular: stop touching us
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 That scans with what we've been hearing so far
cuttlefishman: umm
Rhynerd: Oh no, Sam turned into a baby
niccus: you are the baby
Aenir798: talking is made difficult
sydnius: can’t spell alelie w/o lie
PharaohBender27: Are . . . are *we* the baby now?
Metric_Furlong: now we're the baby who has to be carried
beowuuf: soooooooo is this is flashback or are we babby now?
MAPBoardgames: I sound like that in the morning sometimes.
Tom_Bruise: now we're gonna have to wait until we're an adult to beat this game! It's gonna take years! Years I tells ya
cuttlefishman: is this a game for babies
v_nome: So THAT is how babby is formed.
saucemaster5000: the one big thing missing from the recent movie....
TXC2: "when I was just a Baby..."
Seth_Erickson: Is this the way home?
noSmokeFire: are we moses
Metric_Furlong: "My momma told me: Son"
Didero: This is a weird baptism
Seth_Erickson: Do we live in Atlantis?
electra310: Did she throw us into the ocean?
v_nome: to be fair, baptism as a whole is pretty weird.
Didero: Wait, 'Sam Strand'? That's not our last name
wildpeaks: as is tradition, Sam wakes up
TXC2: Samuel Stranduel
sydnius: it was about me the whole time
BusTed: @NeoSilverThorn I suppose that's fair.
Metric_Furlong: NeoSilverThorn that is probably wise
beowuuf: samuel strandothy bridgeworth
CAKHost: Um, I think someone needs to check that ocean
PharaohBender27: @NeoSilverThorn Smart fiancee you go there
Rhynerd: oh, Red Tide.
Tom_Bruise: Samwise Strandwise
TheMerricat: dead whales, you did this !
Didero: Order 69, nice
niccus: nice
Aenir798: Nice order no.
CAKHost: Did someone dump dye?
keroan0: Order 69. Nice
Genie_M: oh well
SK__Ren: Order no. 69? Nice
TXC2: Nice
Seth_Erickson: Moon's Haunted 👀
electra310: Do you think Sam feels weird walking without a backpack?
cuttlefishman: nice
CAKHost: Nice
wench_tacular: nice
Invitare: The Bloodmoon rises
Tom_Bruise: Nice?
wildpeaks: standed whales ? life is very strange here
Genie_M: this is the beach of beaches
Didero: We're all immature, aren't we? :p
Rhynerd: Congratulations, you are Order 69
sydnius: Excellent!
Invitare: Kos or some say Kosm
NeoSilverThorn: Red tide. Don't eat the seafood.
TXC2: just as planed, yet again Kappa
wildpeaks: I hope you like running on beaches
Invitare: grant us eyes are you once did for Vacuous Rom
Rhynerd: You must deliver yourself to Amelie to save the world
keroan0: What did the whales ever do to deserve this, is my question
sydnius: @rhynerd get in the bag
electra310: The whales are death stranding, obviously
Genie_M: this is probably the strangest part of the whole story
BusTed: Time now for a good sit.
Didero: @Genie_M That's saying a LOT :p
Seth_Erickson: This truly is cursed, not a single can of Monster Energy around us. NotLikeThis
wildpeaks: she really needs to learn more songs, someone get her spotify
TheThromborax: ! spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
TXC2: a black dress now eh?
Genie_M: and I mean even more strange than Heartman's things
Rhynerd: Oh, she got a black dress
beowuuf: new outfit, still heels!
TheMerricat: This is Bridget.
wildpeaks: *gasp*
sydnius: All Terrain heels lv.4
Tom_Bruise: "Look, mam, I've been busy!"
NicoTheSly: mother?
beowuuf: i'm you, from the past
Genie_M: Bridget is Amelie is Bridget is Amelie
TXC2: Sam, For the love of the Gods please notice that they'r the same damn actress
Tom_Bruise: If the villain of this piece turned out to be not Die-Hardman or Die-Hardmum but actual Die Antwoord, I'd love it
MAPBoardgames: Bridget can't be Amelie, their names aren't anagrams
wildpeaks: :D
sydnius: gah elder abuse
TXC2: MAPBoardgames sound reasoning
beowuuf: is it like Ka / Ha
Didero: she has a gun
Seth_Erickson: I'm assuming people who've played through this and watched the whole game are also still confused like I am having come in so late.
TXC2: she has Die Hardman's gun
PharaohBender27: "Well, you could have TOLD me that!"
TheMerricat: Samantha.
cuttlefishman: what
TXC2: Seth_Erickson it is SLOWLY coming together
wildpeaks: turns out, our sister/wife was our mom all long, oh no
KV1NN4: Samantha Strand..?
TheMerricat: LOL
Didero: oh god, the mask is an even more stupid metaphor than I thought
Seth_Erickson: @TXC2 I'll have to take your word for it
saucemaster5000: it's chinatown
Tom_Bruise: SAMantha Strand, if you will
cuttlefishman: This is like Heinlein
TheThromborax: let Paul figure this out
electra310: Lou is his sister!
keroan0: I think they hinted he was "adopted"?
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun he did he made the necklace thing for her.
MAPBoardgames: He was informed about having a mother at the beginning of the game
Tom_Bruise: The time for questions, as it turns out, is all the time always
Genie_M: she thought Amelie is his sister
frnknstn: Quiet was in a different game tho
KV1NN4: i alweays assumed the pregger ladyt int he photo was his sister
Genie_M: *he
LordZarano: Like Lockne & Målingen are both the same person now?
RandomTrivia: Hi friends! lrrHEART How goes the cutscene? (or should that be cutmovie?)
X_modem: He visted her on the beach.
beowuuf: factually true
NeoSilverThorn: Are there any other Bridget Strands that I should know about?
TXC2: hello RandomTrivia welcome
noSmokeFire: but I don't know anything!
accountmadeforants: Nah, this is Kojima going "Alright gamers, sit down for a cutscene, I'm about to dump some lore on you"
Genie_M: no, Amelie was always grown up
TheThromborax: she explained everything off screen. I fucking love the AUDACITY of it
sydnius: no shoot JR
Didero: Then maybe get your HAND OFF THE TRIGGER
TheMerricat: to be fair Paul your complaint about the Whale fight was that it didn't seem that interested in killing you :P
Invitare: just every soul in America
Invitare: the rest of the worst really IS fine
sydnius: i can stitch seams
Tom_Bruise: oh let's Akira the hell outta this world
noSmokeFire: that's a pretty small bang in cosmic terms
Tom_Bruise: Birth a new universe
X_modem: Admitedly there are "flaws" in her plan.
Sogheim: oh no I missed movie day!
beowuuf: @X_modem it's bollocks?
wildpeaks: but there is no pizza in this plan
noSmokeFire: I'm glad the chiral network breaking things down was at least intentional instead of a stupid coincidence
MAPBoardgames: @Sogheim not a lot
Didero: Didn't the previous extinction events just kill a lot of animals, not literally the entire galaxy?
X_modem: That would be one of them @beowuuf
TXC2: yeah, you know, just a few BILLION years left, nothing big
beowuuf: @X_modem :D couldnt resist the blackadder quote
NicoTheSly: Higgs, is that you? Choice one is a bit insane.
sydnius: technology will kill us all lrrFINE lrrWOW
TheMerricat: @Didero an extinction event to surpass metal gear...oh wait...
Genie_M: previous EEs cleared off 90+ percents of life (on Earth? who knows)
Tom_Bruise: So we can stop it?
Invitare: oh no, the worst James Bond film
Invitare: humanity doesn't deserve that
v_nome: Where did James Bond enter into this?
Didero: So why did she want us to connect everybody, if now the problem is that everybody is connected?
accountmadeforants: Okay, so we had the red option and the blue option, so where's the green option? MiniK
TheExactSame: I mean. can you smell that?
Genie_M: but now there's intelligence
beowuuf: oh no she namechecked *that* bond film, she truly is an irredeemable monster :p
NicoTheSly: Dead whale decorations add a lot of character to the beach.
Seth_Erickson: Can we roll credits, or how many times have they said the title of the game thus far
Genie_M: Didero because she works for both sides - she is the EE, but she does not want it
X_modem: You can't stop the bodyrock sam!
beowuuf: so this was what higgs thought he was choosing?
HundreydAundre: It's not you, it's not me; ...it's probably just US in general...
Tom_Bruise: Look, if there's more life to live in which David Lynch gets to make movies, I'm game for more life
sydnius: Lindsey Waggoner oscar overdue
TXC2: I'd like to think life is a bit more then that Paul
wench_tacular: back up!
wildpeaks: only one of these two options has "petting dogs and pizza"
Genie_M: yes
niccus: thank you sam
plummeting_sloth: okay, pull the noose. got it
Seth_Erickson: Now what a minute
wench_tacular: kojima?
beowuuf: yes the turnwise, or noose the widderform
RandomTrivia: All we know how to do is deliver stuff!
Genie_M: (there are no multiple endings)
Tom_Bruise: I don't know, Amelie, I wasn't really paying attention
Didero: "Sure you do" is an incredibly frustrating answer to "I don't know what to do"
Corqren: pew pew
Invitare: wait what
accountmadeforants: "Order No. 69"
Invitare: Kojima
RandomTrivia: G A M E P L A Y
noSmokeFire: this gun sucks
Invitare: Kojima help us
Rhynerd: Oh no, she’s bulletproof
jamesk902: I would simply choose not to end the world.
X_modem: I unloaded my gun into her so quickly when I played this.
keroan0: Woah, she ducked like she was in the matrix
sydnius: unbreakable
noSmokeFire: she gave us a gun filled with blanks!
TheExactSame: fooooled youuuuu
wildpeaks: well fudge
Aenir798: uh?

Invitare: anything behind you?
Rhynerd: Quick, go for the knife
Tom_Bruise: reload?
sydnius: llok up
jessieimproved: it's going to make you get close i bet
plummeting_sloth: ooooouuuch
PharaohBender27: "Hey, so that didn't work and I'm out of ammo - any tips?"
Tom_Bruise: oh this is fine
TheThromborax: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
RandomTrivia: We shot her in the torso, naturally she's bleeding from the eyes... benginFacepalm
wench_tacular: this seems fine
NeoSilverThorn: Oops.
Invitare: Kojima pls
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
Corqren: welp
Tom_Bruise: Which pill did we take?
NeoSilverThorn: lrrFINE
Aenir798: ???
Genie_M: yes
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you pulled the gun
BusTed: seabatCHOICE
Tom_Bruise: the bad pill apparently
CaptainSpam: Well, live and learn.
sydnius: so much DBZ
keroan0: Seems like... we didn't kill her
Rhynerd: Rope pulled
TheMerricat: LOL
HundreydAundre: lrrSPOOP
RandomTrivia: The ILLUSION of choice!
NicoTheSly: You cut the rope, Paul.
RandomTrivia: \o/
TheExactSame: ugh
LordZarano: seabatCHOICE
Tom_Bruise: oh the Illusion of choice
TheExactSame: just ugh
HundreydAundre: No.... not this
Didero: What a stupid game :D
Corqren: wow
NojhLivic: Ooh. I wonder if Death Stranding falls under the genre of magical realism. Or if their attempt to quantify all this phenomena using science negates that.
CAKHost: :|
wildpeaks: the illusion of choice, our nemesis
MAPBoardgames: I _STILL_ don't know what to do!
e_bloc: I got stuck here for a while when I played it
Didero: Get closer?
Rhynerd: Amelie, Sam’s an idiot
niccus: i'll take forcing a choice over a choice that doesn't do much
Tom_Bruise: Just run up to her, point blank it
sydnius: esc quit game
TheThromborax: "after everything, how could you not"
CAKHost: Look around?
accountmadeforants: Shoot one of the whales, it's their fault
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Something Different
Corqren: oh wow
Aenir798: try shooting her front?
beowuuf: seabatBRAIN_TK seabatCHOICE_TK
Invitare: can you shoot yourself?
accountmadeforants: You trained for this.
TheMerricat: You can holster the gun using the dpad
Invitare: plus your controller into the second player port?
Aenir798: can you melee her
HundreydAundre: No.... Ma'am? Ma'am! U... DA A A ARE!?
electra310: Maybe yourself, yeah
Didero: "Choose, Sam! No, not that choice!"
TheExactSame: man. htat rockert loauncher would be nice right now
electra310: Shoot the moon?
TheMerricat: LOL
RandomTrivia: VROOM
Zaghrog: we could holster
PharaohBender27: @electra310 I was wondering the same
ashiok_nightmare_moose: (the other choice you could choose not to pull the trigger at all)
Tom_Bruise: Just go over there I guess
Tom_Bruise: or not
RandomTrivia: Welp
MAPBoardgames: We're off to find the sub-ocean
CaptainSpam: "Man, screw this. I'm outie."
NeoSilverThorn: "And thus, when the extinction came, Sam noped the fuck out."
CAKHost: :\
PharaohBender27: OK game plz
Didero: What an incredibly dumb way for the game to ruin what should be a touching moment
Zaghrog: we shot
Seth_Erickson: seabatCHOICE
wench_tacular: and you'll keep doing it until you get it right!
NicoTheSly: Stop crying, we don't know what to do :(
sydnius: lrrJUDGE
PsychoI3oy: man i've seen the end of this game and I don't even remember how to do it
keroan0: This seems like a rather silly thing to have to figure out. Kills the momentum of the story
Rhynerd: The important part of being a being a 00 is knowing when to pull the trigger, and when not to pull the trigger.
Aenir798: Can you shoot her from the front
beowuuf: do we jump in to the water?
HundreydAundre: This is how things are now! You & me, trapped in this moment... ENDLESSLY.
TheMerricat: "Don't know what to do!" "Well we'll keep doing this till you do Sam!"
BusTed: tqsHug
aWabbajack: CQC?!
Invitare: maybe... maybe we shouldn't just let Kojima do *whatever* he wants
X_modem: I remember but part of the "fun" is figuring it out.
KV1NN4: omfg
beowuuf: sis/mum-oo, i've come to bargain
budbjinxed: Dormomu, I've come to bargin
Seth_Erickson: oh of course!
KV1NN4: Kojima
electra310: I guess we're ending the world
plummeting_sloth: Sorry about shooting yoru before
Tom_Bruise: Hand to hand really is the basis of all combat
NotCainNorAbel: what is our hug skill level?
NicoTheSly: Now kill her!
wildpeaks: woohoo
TXC2: once more with clarity
sydnius: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
Metric_Furlong: NotCainNorAbel over 9000
plummeting_sloth: you probably shouldn't have given me that gun if you didn't want me to shoot you before
PharaohBender27: So we're saving the world with the power of love?
Tom_Bruise: Yep, it's like Wonder Woman
Genie_M: it happened on her beach
v_nome: We were the fifth element after all?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @plummeting_sloth the whole point is to give you the gun, its the other choice
NotCainNorAbel: @Metric_Furlong 9000 metric furlongs is a lot of skill!
Metric_Furlong: PharaohBender27 human connection, I think?
TXC2: Love is the most powerful force in the universe
sydnius: mom was mom the whole time
Genie_M: Bridget was split for a very long time
Sogheim: saving the world with love? I've seen this anime
BusTed: "Say, you didn't also dream about me shooting you in the back, did you?"
Genie_M: she started so many plans with higgs, with you, with die-hardman....
Didero: So how was she president then?
cuttlefishman: Is this flatland now
Tom_Bruise: She grew tired of these petty humans, of being caught up in their meaningless lives
sydnius: 1d
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @cuttlefishman always has been
noSmokeFire: @Didero she seemed like an entity you could have a beer with
HundreydAundre: @TXC2 I mean,... if you say so. Sure.
TheExactSame: by the way. I chose to shoot you twice. Do you know that or ... how does this work?
Didero: @noSmokeFire Hah! :D
MAPBoardgames: I feel like this game has been Stringing us along.
wench_tacular: yeah, we know
TXC2: and now the dress is blue
NotCainNorAbel: America
Didero: "Here's a gun! Guns are useless!"
noSmokeFire: this gun loves roleplaying games
Seth_Erickson: It's role to play was to be thrown into the ocean
Tom_Bruise: The gun has the role of being thrown into a puddle to play
sydnius: LIBERATED
saucemaster5000: When does Kojima walk out of the sea wearing a Jesus Beard?
NotCainNorAbel: oh no, not the dress colour conversation again
beowuuf: wife's a beach and then you die?
noSmokeFire: I have when people call themselves beaches. don't put yourself down
sydnius: hey now
Didero: You JUST said that time has no meaning to you!
Steelwolf171: Someone has to clean up all these whales
Alephred: Aha, 'Princess Beach' strikes again!
RandomTrivia: @beowuuf BRAVO
Seth_Erickson: @beowuuf LUL
beowuuf: :D
noSmokeFire: @Alephred goddamnit that has to be intentional
CAKHost: Uhhhh
wildpeaks: 'mam, maybe you need a different job, perhaps get a hobby
Tom_Bruise: Her job? Who does she answer to? Is there some other Elder God who's her manager?
shendaras: Who employed her to destroy the world?
TXC2: "even if it takes 100,000's of years" you mean like the Holocean EE going on RIGHT NOW?
wench_tacular: take up knitting maybe?
Metric_Furlong: beowuuf https://i.imgur.com/svXjbWm.gif
electra310: She does like strands, knitting could be good
sydnius: “Sister Mom Cthulu”
plummeting_sloth: fuck yeah rebel nautilus
wildpeaks: with thousands of years, she could knit some really cool scarves
beowuuf: @Metric_Furlong lol
NotCainNorAbel: organize the sand.
accountmadeforants: She is the beach, c'mon. The dead whales are as much a part of her as the woman you hugged.
Metric_Furlong: TXC2 she is the holocean extinction - she said earlier
accountmadeforants: Now hug a whale.
electra310: She'd have to learn to spin fiber out of baleen, but she's got lots of raw material
plummeting_sloth: God, even in this Sam has just such deep Adam Savadin "I don't know what's going on in this moment but I guess I'm here now" energy
TXC2: Metric_Furlong ah, I must have missed that being specified
TheThromborax: he gave her un-life meaning
noSmokeFire: she really loves dunking you
PharaohBender27: Hey, she stole our clothes!
budbjinxed: oooo Butt
Didero: Also, who IS your family?
cuttlefishman: is that a butt
sydnius: nao die
electra310: Sam is adopted
NicoTheSly: Amelie is Bridget
wildpeaks: we'll find out
Genie_M: she's mom's half
PharaohBender27: Oh wait nevermind we got them back
TXC2: Bridget is our adoptive mother
Alephred: There is more explanation to come.
NotCainNorAbel: Second beach, twice removed
ashiok_nightmare_moose: shes Beach mom
NicoTheSly: Who was the adoptive mother of Sam
wench_tacular: why is sam monochrome?
saucemaster5000: Paul, the answer to all those questons is probably Yes
PharaohBender27: Why is Sam gray?
Tom_Bruise: oh no, now we're a gray ghost
noSmokeFire: now we're blue abadi abada
X_modem: Maybe we'll find out.
electra310: Hey, the doll isn't so yicky looking anymore
TheThromborax: it's all yet to come people CHILL with the SPOILERS
Aenir798: Did we even have a pregnant wife? Are we actually human and not just three raccoons in a trenchcoat?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: theres like a BUNCH more still btw
noSmokeFire: YEET
sydnius: …sponsored by Chili’s
aWabbajack: you guys gonna make Thromborax summon the spoil tag
keroan0: I'm blue, ahbadee ahbadai
Didero: "Here's a doll to remember me" *throws it into the sea immediately*
plummeting_sloth: and now a shooting gallery level
Metric_Furlong: TXC2 she used the tern '6th extinction' rather than holocean, which is the same thing but sounds different enough that it's probably missable :p
wildpeaks: lrrPAUL_BW
cuttlefishman: Was... was that actually a decision?
noSmokeFire: now we shoot the credits, like smash bros
CaptainSpam: Make the decision we instructed you to.
plummeting_sloth: make a decision with the illusion of choice
Caldurin: A gun won't help but it will in fact help
BusTed: seabatCHOICE
wildpeaks: welcome to The Credits
Genie_M: here we go
niccus: you finally beat the tutorial!
Rhynerd: And now we’re blue
TXC2: Metric_Furlong ah, I assumed 6th meant a new one for the game
TheThromborax: @awabbajack I've done it like half a dozen times. no one gives a fuck
ashiok_nightmare_moose: i think the credits took me like 45min?
saucemaster5000: Is the porcelan doll going to walk down the beach the opposite way carrying a new elder thing?
Genie_M: this is your beach
sydnius: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
wench_tacular: that was a long pre credit scene
aWabbajack: you tried @TheThromborax at least
Metric_Furlong: and now the game truly begins Kappa
NicoTheSly: Wait, did we end up stuck on the Beach?
TheAinMAP: Roll credits?
wildpeaks: I do wonder how many people stop here
aWabbajack: still much appreeesh @TheThromborax awabbaHeart awabbaCheeseBB
Genie_M: you were taken away the inventory
keroan0: Maybe it's symbolic - blue from lack of oxygen... lack of life?
beowuuf: i take it the credits here is like when you start leaving the concert when the band is just winding down from the 'last' pre-encore song. You're still going to stand around and watch, but you've definitely got your foot out of the door now to avoid the rush
Rhynerd: Actually, it happened to Heartman the first time he died, right?
noSmokeFire: is it possible to fail the credits sequence?
Tom_Bruise: nah, the dead people Refn was trying to talk to were bluegrey
TXC2: winding refn?
CaptainSpam: "Man, this has been a weird day. Anyway, I've got these deliveries to make..."
sydnius: geez no speed skelly
Aenir798: I think the dead people, like in Heartman's flashback, might've been this color
TheMerricat: So we are stuck on this beach till the credits end, then more gameplay/cutscenes.
TheThromborax: @awabbajack the story in this game is bonkers but I still find it moving.
wildpeaks: "time to work on our cardio"
Metric_Furlong: TXC2 yeah, the guy who directed Drive (among other films) - he played Heartman in this
aWabbajack: oh yeah gets me a teary everytim @TheThromborax teenCRI
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @beowuuf this is a kojima game bruh theres still more plot to exposit
noSmokeFire: @TheThromborax from what I've seen it seems like it's got good bones, but Kojima has big "I don't need an editor" energy
Rhynerd: The Reaper asks for a pizza
Invitare: you meet up with Death and he's just like "What the HELL is happening here???"
Tom_Bruise: "Hey Sam? Yeah, this is Death Incarnate. Look, could you swing by Costco real quick?"
CaptainSpam: There is no time for questions, but there... um... IS time for answers?
wildpeaks: time for lore dumps
sydnius: sam “3very day is leg day” bridges
cuttlefishman: what
TheMerricat: Yeah, we just talked about that.
TXC2: Metric_Furlong I was thinking more that is was an odd name :p
beowuuf: @ashiok_nightmare_moose three encores it is!
Alephred: On my playthrough, I ran around the beach for, like, half an hour.
NicoTheSly: What happens if we were to kill ourselves on the beach? Would we die in real life?
TheThromborax: @awabbajack same
Metric_Furlong: TXC2 oh,well, blame Denmark in that case :p
TheMerricat: @NicoTheSly we go straight to the afterlife.
sydnius: those heels are wild tech
TheThromborax: @nosmokefire video games are art. *shrug*
TXC2: Metric_Furlong ah, yeah that fits
Genie_M: More Kredits
KV1NN4: No sh*t.
accountmadeforants: Of "Sonic Suggests" fame?
Invitare: LUL
MAPBoardgames: It bugs me. She is supposed to bring about the 6th extinction, but she did so by destroying the planet. Blowing up the planet is not the same as an extinction event.
TheMerricat: David Cage wanted to make video games that are films, Hideo Kojima did.
Metric_Furlong: the man who made Sonic Suggests wrote this game?! Kappa
Aenir798: "He lied as naturally as he breathed."
DeM0nFiRe: Writer: "You know exactly who"
Tom_Bruise: Kenji Yano, you should've pushed back more
TXC2: !addquote (Paul) [now] Kojima? oh that explains it.
LRRbot: New quote #7593: "Kojima? oh that explains it." —Paul [2021-04-30]
TheMerricat: So we are stuck on this beach till the credits end, then more gameplay/cutscenes.
wildpeaks: afaik it's more a time thing
cuttlefishman: !quote kojima
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
Genie_M: yeah, that
SK__Ren: @accountmadeforants HAHAHA
ashiok_nightmare_moose: nah you just run around til the next scene
Didero: This is just a rude waste of the player's time
TheMerricat: LOL
Genie_M: credits - running - scene - credits - ...
aWabbajack: funded by Monster
aWabbajack: well one of the sponsers
Rhynerd: That’ll be a great quote to come across later
aWabbajack: and AMC
X_modem: It is subtle but you can see his influences on the game just slightly.
Metric_Furlong: MAPBoardgames I mean, technically that would also make things go extinct Kappa
MrSVCD: Extinction Event - EE - Emma Emmerich (MGS2)
plummeting_sloth: sorry Sam, on the ghost beach there is no Monster
Alephred: Yeah, you have to feel despair and isolation until the credits are over.
Tom_Bruise: or beer, remember when we had Energy Beer?
cuttlefishman: Did we just get... teleported?
BusTed: He's very thirsty, you see. Terribly desaturated.
aWabbajack: beer was great, after 3rd beer he sprays it on to camera
Didero: Hah, that needs Benny Hill music playing
sydnius: gotta hoof it to Ironwind
aWabbajack: you just have to do the mission to get beer back
plummeting_sloth: I was being treated by DEVO
Steelwolf171: Why do I hear Yakkity Sax?
accountmadeforants: Kojima: "And here's the supporters of this Kickstarter I liked, good job funding a magnifying glass that's also a stein!"
X_modem: That's really what the game is about, Monster Energy.
NicoTheSly: Oh no, they are multiplying!
PharaohBender27: The concepts of Ha and Ka are really gettting a workout in this game, aren't they?
Didero: Wait, I thought Amelie WAS the Beach
noSmokeFire: why did you need to explain amelie when she was in another dimension
Invitare: and no one checked up on the family of the President of the United States
wildpeaks: we're going full Voldemort now
Saulens181: OH MY GOD
Middydas: It's actually spellt âme
Alephred: More like this era's EE manfests as both Bridget and Amelie.
Invitare: Kojima NotLikeThis
wench_tacular: I'm a Lie
TXC2: Tom Marvolo Riddle
Didero: What an incredible stretch
sydnius: lrrWOW
Genie_M: got to admit, that's smart
DeM0nFiRe: @TXC2 lol was about to say it
NicoTheSly: It's less than clever...
LordZarano: Can we go... into the sea?
TheMerricat: Ah Hideo. What did Subtilty do to you when you were a child?
Drag0nrun: What happens if you run into the water?
noSmokeFire: can we just run in a circle?
TXC2: it's clever to a 14 year old : p
Metric_Furlong: Genie_M chat will never admit that, because they didn't get it before it was explained to them Kappa
Steelwolf171: To understand the beach you must become the beach
Sogheim: this is feeling like a jeff vandermeer novel
plummeting_sloth: make it over them hills Paul. Find teh Beaches Sub ocean
CaptainSpam: Sam's like, "Dangit, I WILL reach this grassy area and ENJOY it!"
wildpeaks: "I'm 14 and this is deep"
plummeting_sloth: it must be here
Genie_M: no, you have to run for credits
Tom_Bruise: @TheMerricat leave him, there's clearly a lack of subtlety's influence
accountmadeforants: Every time I see that "Stand up" prompt, I think of Samurai Flamenco's "SIT. DOWN."
TheThromborax: @themerricat would subtly make this better?
electra310: Run into the ocean?
TStodden: This ending or opening credits? I'm so confused...
MAPBoardgames: I'm with @plummeting_sloth on this one. Find the sub-ocean
noSmokeFire: sam has to get his steps in
TheMerricat: @TheThromborax TBH, no, you can't better perfection :P
sydnius: A Goldstone Boson is just a circular excitation with only phase-encoding! lrrWOW
cuttlefishman: yeah, part of this ending does remind of Samurai Flamenco's ending
gualdhar: order nice
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun We've still got one more chapter and a lot more exposition to go
Didero: This is just a garbage way to treat players, Kojima
Alephred: So much exposition to come.
noSmokeFire: @TheMerricat will it work to save here?
Sogheim: I appreciate the attempt, Paul, but Kojima will never be rushed
Genie_M: this scene will end in 1 or 2 more
PharaohBender27: Bonus stream tomorrow?
Rhynerd: I’d say we’re close to an hour left.
BusTed: roasted
Aenir798: It's not even post-credits yet. It's still mid-credeits.
wench_tacular: zing!
aWabbajack: Alexa Play: D'Exposition
TheThromborax: @themerricat this game is exactly what it is, and I love it for it's audacity
PharaohBender27: Oh SNAP
CaptainSpam: Ooooooooh the self-burn!
cuttlefishman: Next stream, are you going to prep some pop corn up ahead of time?
accountmadeforants: cuttlefishman Though to be honest, Flamenco makes Kojima look like a coward.
beowuuf: gottem
Tom_Bruise: I'm starting to believe all of you who claim this game has an ending are lying
TXC2: PharaohBender27 there's time on Monday for a stream
TheMerricat: @noSmokeFire no clue, never played the game, I spoiled myself a long time ago when I thought it would never come to PC :P
wildpeaks: gotta burn all these Monster calories
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yeah this isnt really post credits lol this is post pre-credits haha
MAPBoardgames: Illusion of choice
frnknstn: I think you can't say Kojima is mistreating the player. If you come this far in the game, you have otped in to the Full Kojima
LordZarano: seabatCHOICE
TXC2: this is an Intra-crdits scene
NicoTheSly: Can we just shoot her to make her stop?
Tom_Bruise: Sam looks so tired, oh my god
TheThromborax: @loadingreadyrun you will not finish in the next 11 minutes
X_modem: Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
wildpeaks: as if lore dumps weren't annoying enough, having to run between each dump is even more frustrating
Genie_M: it seems you will - this scene ends in a few more narratives, but then you have a 70th job to finish
Tom_Bruise: So bored and so tired
Didero: Ok, stop walking circles, this is making me dizzy
TheThromborax: "we discovered the afterlife and used it for bitcoin"
sydnius: 🐲🍄⏰⏰⏰🦠🦠🦠🦠🦠
Didero: Doom Stranding?
TXC2: "we can reclaim all this lost information from history" then tell me who the sea peoples where
TXC2: *were
Tom_Bruise: "Look, Elder God of Death and Decay, could you write this down? In, like, a memo or something?"
NightValien28: someone tell kojima the concept of SHOW don't tell, please
Invitare: Doom Slayer was the reason for the previous 5 mass exitnctions
electra310: This cutscene could've been an email
wildpeaks: :D
Metric_Furlong: I'm sort of getting the impression the game was perhaps not designed with streaming in mind :p
NightValien28: how long has this been going?
wildpeaks: Kojima reaaaally wants to make movies
Tom_Bruise: America is the universe now?!
sydnius: time has no meaning
Metric_Furlong: wildpeaks if he'd wanted to, he'd have done it by now
BusTed: 🔁
NightValien28: wildpeaks there was a article a long time ago, most game directors are failed hollywood movie directors
sydnius: CP violation?
wench_tacular: team order!
wildpeaks: that would explain a lot
Invitare: does she know there's more to the Universe than Earth?
TheMerricat: See the difference between Kojima and Cage is Kojima makes GOOD movies/games.
wench_tacular: life finds a way
cuttlefishman: Life finds a way
CaptainSpam: So somehow, life, uh, finds a way?
Didero: It seems pretty solipsistic to think the entire galaxy cares about our tiny little planet
Metric_Furlong: wildpeaks like, I understand that the statement is a meme, but honestly his stuff has way too much Weird Game Shit to be coming from anyone who doesn't want to be working in the medium
sydnius: oh god she is HIGH
SK__Ren: Let me tell you about Chaos Theory...
noSmokeFire: her hands are really bothering me for some reason
cuttlefishman: She might just be Jeff Goldblum
CAKHost: Did she just connect to Sam to have someone to monologue at?
Invitare: weren't "The Big Five" Yu Gi Oh villains?
cuttlefishman: ,,,
Didero: "Cull the weak!"
wildpeaks: welp, time for more running
shendaras: The Shadows from B5
keroan0: I think this probably should have been part of the... actual game? Seems important to the understanding of the plot
Metric_Furlong: Didero I mean, the characters in this are from the USA Kappa
ashiok_nightmare_moose: thanos didnt cull the weak though he culled the unluckey
sydnius: death stranding : kojima cut
dkosa: one more
Didero: Wait, "Lead Mech Artist"?
TheMerricat: So the one thing I'm going to laugh about is if Paul saves this and when we come back, it starts over from the beginning of the credits. :P
Genie_M: she's villain / helper
TXC2: "cull the weak" is a social Darwinism bullshit thing
wildpeaks: !next
PharaohBender27: @Didero For the robot deliveries?
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (1:06 from now).
Tom_Bruise: Look, sometimes your adopted mom is partly Death Incarnate, and that gets complicated sometimes
TheThromborax: *can* you stop this?
Genie_M: she tried to kill you to make you strong enough to finish
TheThromborax: I don't remember
accountmadeforants: "This is Chillpoint. The news is Death Stranding."
Didero: @Didero Seems like a bit of a stretch to call those 'mechs' though
drp3p3r77: Paul!! Are you playing this on 5 ps5???
frnknstn: Is this "cull the weak" or is this "work together because we are all weak"
TheMerricat: @TheThromborax it looks as if you can save.... we haven't tried.
Rhynerd: It is guaranteed to be a short episode.
sydnius: he’s RUNNING the credits
X_modem: LOL
Aenir798: can you run in other directions, maybe into the water
Genie_M: yep
Genie_M: the chatpoint
accountmadeforants: frnknstn It's "foster stubbornness in the weak, so they eventually become too angry to die"
wildpeaks: That Day
CaptainSpam: Sam's stopped caring loooooong ago in this conversation.
NicoTheSly: Mean lady has broken Sam :(
Didero: Kojima is even a pretty bad movie director here, since the player has to control the camera themselves
sydnius: sponsored by huggies
TheMerricat: Yep you called it Paul. :)
Genie_M: she gave you repatriation
Tom_Bruise: She could've made Sam an immortal?
Genie_M: well in a way she did
Didero: Also, did she just say that she shot your parents? OR did I mishear?
Tom_Bruise: o right, he's immortal
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Theres More To Be Revealed
Tom_Bruise: Dang Death, always killing our parents
TheMerricat: @Didero she said she pulled the trigger twice that day... we've seen a point in the game where Bridget shot someone. I won't say any more than that.....
TheThromborax: Sam's story is very Much
TheThromborax: so so Much
Rhynerd: It sound like she might have shot you, possibly by accident
Genie_M: she created everyone's DOOMS
accountmadeforants: TheMerricat Ah hell, I think I can guess where this is going. Going by earlier jokes in chat...
sydnius: she is a jojo antichrist
Rhynerd: “Oh shoot, I shot Sam! Wait, I can fix this! Oh no, fixing Sam made this worse!”

TheMerricat: @accountmadeforants Hideo has twists, but he's not subtle :)
TheThromborax: reminder for the confused that this all takes place before the part with the gun
Didero: oh no, credits again but formatted differently
wildpeaks: so we reached the midway point of credits
BusTed: Okie doke.
TXC2: thanks for streaming Paul
CaptainSpam: Oh crap.
TheMerricat: I'm so sorry Paul.
PharaohBender27: katesScared
ashiok_nightmare_moose: this is 2nd credits
Saulens181: KOJIMAAAAA!
TheMerricat: Maybe we can skip once we load again.
Tom_Bruise: Normally games don't need breaks during credits, I guess
TheThromborax: someone order Paul a pizza
TXC2: deep sigh
beowuuf: leave them running and have lunch then save when you come back :p
Genie_M: not until you get out of this beach
CaptainSpam: Kojima hates streamers and the player's time.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: theres still 3rd credits
wildpeaks: I don't think they know about second credits Pipin
LordZarano: Kojima! No! Bad Kojima!
TheMerricat: LOL
Corqren: mmmmn this sucks
wildpeaks: leave it paused :D
Manae: Where's the last save start at?
wench_tacular: option B
X_modem: In the main game it saves whenever you sit down.
Manae: Because if it's just "30 minutes of this again Monday" that's not so bad
SK__Ren: We were warned its like a 3hr expo dump. I just didn't think it was without checkpoints
TheMerricat: Last save is probably where we 'chose' not to shoot Amelie
sydnius: which will induce a memory leak
Genie_M: iirc the credits roll and then you get out of the beach soon
accountmadeforants: Check Load? What's the last thing it saved?
Corqren: check the loads?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: iirc its after deadman but i dont know when youll get that scene
Didero: See, THIS alone makes Kojima a bad game maker, this is just an asshole move. "No, you cannot play this game at your own pace and time, you NEED to stay" is a game design sin
niccus: oh hey the full on credits
wildpeaks: yup, he doesn't respect the player's time
sydnius: lrrJUDGE
PharaohBender27: @Corqren But if he does that, doesn't that potentially wipe out what progress we've made?
CaptainSpam: Welp, quick, to the sub-ocean!
TheThromborax: @loadingreadyrun leave the stream running while you go eat?
Corqren: not sure!
TXC2: Appreing but not voice acting maybe ?
TheMerricat: So skimming over the walkthrough we've still got a bit to go in credit hell.....
wildpeaks: good idea, you could leave the credits running while you eat
X_modem: Try sitting and see if the save icon shows up in the lower right hand part of the screen.
Seth_Erickson: I kind of dig this song tbh
sydnius: surprisd ashley ain’t there
Corqren: I thought load would bring up a list of the saves?
TheThromborax: @didero would you call a painter bad if they painted something too large for your wall?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you can quit it doesnt send you back.... chats just looking for complaints
TheMerricat: @ashiok_nightmare_moose less looking for complaints and more genuinely don't know
KenKopin: If he wanted to sell that painting to me, yes.
Corqren: not looking for complaints, just don't know
sydnius: h7nter ezmoadnrofls
Didero: @TheThromborax If you comissioned a piece for your wall, yes, absolutely
SK__Ren: Junji Ito?!
Tom_Bruise: Junji Ito?
TheThromborax: @Didero well, you didn't commission Death Stranding.
SK__Ren: jinx
TheMerricat: Of course Junji Ito was involved in this somehow.
beowuuf: one of the earlier deliveries, i think chat mentioned it looking like edgar wright at the time
LordZarano: @ashiok_nightmare_moose That is not even slightly clear
Tom_Bruise: Boo!
DeM0nFiRe: Isn't junji ito the guy who did the "this is my hole" comic?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: i can only empathize with showing credits early sets expectations wrong for how long is left... its not 'bad game design'
Aenir798: @DeM0nFiRe yes
TXC2: DeM0nFiRe he did indeed
Didero: @TheThromborax Not everybody has infinite time for videogames, so unavoidable claiming that time as a game maker is rude
Alephred: Junji Ito was the Engineer.
SK__Ren: Junji Ito is an author of what I would call Surrealist Horror
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun "Hunter" is one of the BT models
TheMerricat: Junji Ito is a famous japanese horror writer that has a lot of body horror in his works.
accountmadeforants: Junji Ito also draws manga about cute cats.
dkosa: someone order paul skip the dishes lol jk
RandomTrivia: I will be VERY disappointed if you can't die in the credits
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @LordZarano i would be if you look at all the save states that are int he load game screen... most poeple arent going to even notice or try
frnknstn: Claiming time? If you object to walking during the credit, I have bad news about the rest of the game play
Didero: @TheThromborax Like here, Paul is more worried about time and planning than fully experiencing this scene, all because there's no saving, so it even undermines the original intent
sydnius: sin of a beach
wildpeaks: good thing there is a nice song at least
Rhynerd: I was about to say that
sydnius: kojima must love Maine beaches
TStodden: If we get to the subocean, can we skip this?
Genie_M: went too far
CaptainSpam: Oh, come on, game. We know there's a sub-ocean out there!
PharaohBender27: @sydnius I believe he actually based the landscapes on Iceland
Tom_Bruise: "We now interrupt these credits to deliver this breaking exposition"
Metric_Furlong: sydnius you could say they're his Maine interest Kappa
TheThromborax: @sydnius this looks like Maine?
Rhynerd: I feel like there
Genie_M: your beach is not endless
RandomTrivia: There must be a Sub-Ocean somewhere
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong lrrWOW
TXC2: sydnius lot of the landscape is based on ICeland
sydnius: @thethromborax in summer,
Rhynerd: ‘s not enough shark teeth for this to be maine
Corqren: Paul return to the sea
TheMerricat: Chat, can games that are set in literal oceans, have sub-oceans?
TheThromborax: @sydnius very cool. I've only been in the interior
Penguino_Rojo: Its Baywatch now. You run in the water in slow mo
X_modem: apparently reddit says you can check the timestamp on the save files to see the last time it saved
wench_tacular: get in the sea
ashiok_nightmare_moose: ^
RandomTrivia: Of course TheMerricat, it's about finding the one underneath the normal one
KenKopin: Sub-skys?
shadowdemonz123: Hi all
RandomTrivia: sergeIntoTheSea
TXC2: Hello shadowdemonz123 welcome
Rhynerd: Then again, my knowledge of maine beaches comes mostly from stuff my father told me about his time in Maine
Tom_Bruise: Almost there...
accountmadeforants: TheMerricat Well yes, that was the thing about the original sub-ocean. It was underneath the regular ocean.
wildpeaks: final phrase, time to break out of this joint
TheMerricat: @shadowdemonz123 you've picked a hell of a time to join :) Welcome.
Zaghrog: ooh
TStodden: @TheMerricat Check into Subnautica... I'm sure there's one hiding in there.
frnknstn: I found the subocean in subnautica once
NicoTheSly: A choice?
plummeting_sloth: ah, we have to use the gun as crafting material!
Corqren: pew
plummeting_sloth: oh, I see
wench_tacular: ok then
MAPBoardgames: Roll Credits
CaptainSpam: Well, that sounds like it helped. You lied, game!
sydnius: cool game
shendaras: Intro done.
Metric_Furlong: oh that's what we're playing
TXC2: Roll Credits
Alephred: A gun won't help. But for reals, it will help.
saucemaster5000: "Chapter 1 Complete"
beowuuf: beej's intro is getting very esoteric
PharaohBender27: Did . . . did we just do what I - oh, nevermind
wench_tacular: can't wait to see the actual game
shendaras: Now you can play the game
TheMerricat: lol
Tom_Bruise: "Oh right, I wasted all the ammo trying to shoot her"
Rhynerd: Amelie unloaded your gun.
TXC2: try 6 times Sam
Tomasu82: yeah, that tutorial was a tad long
sydnius: lrrWOW
wildpeaks: "not even death will let you escape The Credits, silly player"
Didero: You're your own BB!
plummeting_sloth: you have to live... in this credit sequence... forever
TheMerricat: wooot!
keroan0: Then why did Cliff keep trying to kill us??
Didero: We're free!
Corqren: yay save
wildpeaks: woohoo
Forgotten_Lizard: Wooo Saves
PharaohBender27: Yay!
wildpeaks: freedom
NicoTheSly: Victory!!!

Genie_M: thank you for the stream
wildpeaks: I recall thinking "it's longer than a movie" last time I saw postcredits
beowuuf: sergeHi bye, time for some fisty times then chillpoint
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 What was the longest? Kathleen's?
bernardo013: can't wait for that!

Tom_Bruise: Until next time, then. We didn't put this baby to bed yet, but we did one baby at least

LRRbot: LRR now has Youtube memberships. Don't know what that is? Well, as the video explains, it's another way to support LRR: https://youtu.be/bmdI0W2l9Zg
PharaohBender27: @accountmadeforants That is, three more times *in addition* to next Monday
CAKHost: Bye!
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong I voted "Try a One-Shot", but only because you should play "OneShot", which is an excellent video game.
TXC2: Goodnight Everybody
TheMerricat: NIght @TXC2 :)
TheMerricat: And check the rest of you in an hour chat :)
beowuuf: night txc2
Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants I do actually own that, although haven't gotten around to it yet
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 That checks out, turns out traditional JRPGs aren't great for time. :D
Metric_Furlong: (I was going to, but then I started playing Civ again)
RandomTrivia: Goodnight TXC2!
frnknstn: @accountmadeforants and it is on sale on steam right now, like 40% off
wildpeaks: well, back to reinventing the wheel because I'm disappointed by the output of every static site generators
PharaohBender27: @accountmadeforants We also had some very confusingly laid-out final dungeon areas for that game, so it went several sessions longer than intended :p
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong It really is excellent. There's also a New Game+ which is basically a sequel, so in advance, I'd recommend you check out a guide if you can't figure out how to make that happen on its own.
wildpeaks: *inserts "there is now 14 standards" xkcd comic*
accountmadeforants: (The sequel part was added in a patch about a year after release, before then it was a regular NG+, it was a whole thing with a a countdown and everything.)
Metric_Furlong: (unrelated, but I think this poll is covering the widest range of time, going from oldest entry to most recent, that I've done)
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 Oh yes, I was there for pretty much the whole thing.
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong Oh wait, they're *all* real animes? Here I thought the point was for us to guess which one was the real one :p
accountmadeforants: (Though admittedly sometimes I just left it running in the background)
Metric_Furlong: PharaohBender27 oh yeah, they're all real, just with fake names (I do these as a way of ordering my 'to-watch' list)
PharaohBender27: @accountmadeforants Right, sorry. I think I vaguely remember you being there for those streams, it's been a while *and* in 2020 time since that PiF :p
Metric_Furlong: people are free to try and guess any of the actual titles if they want, although it's not required
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong OK, I probably should refrain from voting then because I actually have no clue what each fake title is actually referring to :p
Metric_Furlong: no no, the lack of knowledge is actually beneficial to voting
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 Haha, no worries. I wasn't especially chatty at the time either, I figured I wouldn't really have much good to say about it at a certain point, and I'd rather just join in for the laughs/Kathleen getting very angry at plot.
Metric_Furlong: part of the reason I do this is that, because my watching list contains a lot of things, there's a very wide range of obscurity, so would normally just lead to people only voting for the thing they've heard of
accountmadeforants: Anime, JRPG plotlines, and the idol industry. Truly a match made misogyny hell.
PharaohBender27: @accountmadeforants Fair! :D Though at least she never got Ozmafia-level angry at it
Metric_Furlong: (also because it's a more fun RNG method than just rolling a die)
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong Interesting. Well then, I stand by my choice. I'm curious to know why that German is strangely negative
accountmadeforants: Ozmafia had Jacob, and I got to make a joke that made both of them laugh. ("Please, Mr. Mann was my father, call me Lad.") So I'll always have fond memories of it.
accountmadeforants: Reading the TvTropes of it later almost made me wish they played more of it, though. Just to see them react.
Metric_Furlong: PharaohBender27 I can't promise you the reason doesn't involve terrible puns
PharaohBender27: :D
PharaohBender27: Well, time to start watching some Agatha Fisty, and maybe taking a quick walk (while safely masked of course)
Metric_Furlong: at the same time?
LordZarano: To the youtubes!
Metric_Furlong: [batman transition effect]
v_nome: After all these years I still heard that little tune they play on the Adam West Batman show during transitions
