v_nome: The brain teasers that followed were kinda fun
TheMerricat: Sorta hoping that "Try a one shot" is literally just saying you should watch a one shot. ;)
Metric_Furlong: (it is in fact 26 episodes long, iirc :p )
Earthenone: is try a one shot one punch man? :)
Metric_Furlong: it is not, no
Metric_Furlong: although good guess
v_nome: I thought maybe Negative German might be Hellsing... but probably not. I don't know a lot of animes. lol
Metric_Furlong: (if it helps, generally the fake names are based primarily on the thing's title - see also that time I put Initial D up under the name 'Your First Boyfriend' )
Metric_Furlong: (although not always, as some titles don't really open themselves up to much wordplay)
v_nome: LOL
RandomTrivia: benginLol
Metric_Furlong: v_nome it's not Hellsing, no
Earthenone: in general its all stuff from the title and synopsis right? nothing that needs to have seen the show to understand
v_nome: You should watch Noir. Mostly cause it's the most hipster my anime knowledge gets and I really enjoyed it. lol
Metric_Furlong: Earthenone yeah, since I haven't watched any of them when they go up on the polls
Metric_Furlong: v_nome I have seen that one, actually - although admittedly not since... 2006-ish?
Metric_Furlong: so memory is a little hazy
v_nome: I need to find and watch the two spiritual successors to it sometime. I keep forgetting they exist.
Metric_Furlong: (will also note that the actual "A Strangely Negative German" is probably not going to be one that's well-known)
Metric_Furlong: v_nome Madlax and El Cazador de la Bruja?
v_nome: Yeah
accountmadeforants: I wanna say "The Descent of Airman" is Xam'd: Lost Memories, but I feel like that'd require a bit more knowledge than what you could get from the title alone.
GapFiller: !next
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 (3m from now).
Metric_Furlong: never saw Madlax; wasn't hugely fond of Cazador, but it might be more your thing
Metric_Furlong: than mine
GapFiller: bit of a shame the Tetris ting didnt make it into the epsiode proper
Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants it's not. Xam'd did actually feature on a poll once as "Forgetting you installed 10 GPUs"
GapFiller: still at least theres that gif floating around now
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, the Tetris thing is fascinating. I ended up watching the video I think G watched, and it was really interesting.
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong Haha, that's great. And I definitely wouldn't have made the connection then.
Metric_Furlong: (I do keep a doc running of the actual titles for previous polls, for people curious https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sDDWekA8lYlhVfD30JIBrngnUBPUds6tL83t9_lgbBs/edit )
Metric_Furlong: (yes, I've been doing these things for a while now :p )
Metric_Furlong: (feel free to ask me about anything listed in blue)
accountmadeforants: And if you never ended up watching Xam'd, do at least watch the opening, it's great: https://youtu.be/v_Oc7ny2RvE
RockPusher: lrrDOTS lrrSIGNAL lrrARROW

beowuuf: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
RandomTrivia: lrrSIGNAL !
accountmadeforants: seabatBRAIN lrrSIGNAL
beowuuf: I saw this tetris thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-BZ5-Q48lE&t=0s and I came to it through Rob Scallon, the guitarist mentioned an shown in the video. So it was then funny to have it come up in checkpoint!

PharaohBender27: We ready to chill some points?
Metric_Furlong: got to keep those points cool and fresh
Bellpei subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 33 months!
Bellpei: Hmm... yup... That's a point all right. Good thing I checked.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Bellpei! (Today's storm count: 12)
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong Good to know. And anyway, the things I remember best about the series is the OP and the stellar animation quality, not much plot. (But then it has been a while.)
RandomTrivia indicates the refridgerator
Metric_Furlong: plot was a bit unfocussed, imo - from what I recall
RandomTrivia: Whoops, I guess I'm pointing Chills instead lrrBEEJ
cuttlefishman: Wait, RandomTrivia are you going to the fridge? Can you bring back some juice

GapFiller: The After After Party
RandomTrivia: Oh it's the Book Review segment
RandomTrivia: :D
Bellpei: We watched the trailer. Now it's Chillpoint time!
GapFiller: the bit were we talk abt the stuff that didnt go int othe episode itself
GapFiller: like the Tetris ting
GapFiller: how wd that have fit into the episode tho really
stgts_: I can't believe Checkpoint is a middle grade readers novel. this is a real twist.
GapFiller: the perils of having a fan community accustomed to nxt lvl meta antics
MagicalAttackGecko: Graham does a good graham impression
Snowcookies: Remeber Grant
PharaohBender27: The only message I got from that is the lrrBEEEJ IS the Scrupulous Fingor
RockPusher: Scripulous Fingore is not real and cannot hurt me.
GapFiller: yr get to a point where its unclear who is keyfabing who
ritchards: (Grant is a Friday Nights reference)
RandomTrivia: Better that than UNscrupulous Fingore, I suppose
Metric_Furlong: ritchards good old Grant from the other timeline
beowuuf: he's the belzenlok
BlueMechanic: My favourite joke from the other timeline was the Mirrodin Pure poster on the wall behind them
Bellpei: A certain je nais se Mario.
saiarcot895: reminded me a bit of the ghosts in luigi's haunted mansion
sydnius: ….and, ribosomes
cuttlefishman: Bowsette confirmed
teaspoonC: put unscrupulous fingore in smash you cowards
saberpilot: master han
saberpilot: *hand
sydnius: i was a sexy fingore last halloween
Bellpei: Master Fingore.
Bellpei: We also dunk on google!
PharaohBender27: It's only *mostly* dunking on them
RockPusher: Dunking on Stadia is a perfectly reasonable pastime
Earthenone: to be fair, when you only have a handfull of games, do you need a searchbar to search your hands?
saiarcot895: did they have enough games to need a search bar/sort?
niccus: the battle.net approach
Orgmastron: Does Epic have a cart function now?
sydnius: store. hehehehe
RandomTrivia: There's a certain amount of futureproofing that a big company like Epic would build in, or at least should
QuietJay: I guess search will work as long as your games are spelled with A B X Y L R U D
Bellpei: But we only think it's gonna die because you're not developing it! :P
TheMerricat: so much... shade
Juliamon: That's literally why Blaseball went 11 seasons without scroll bars
teaspoonC: year-long "when you get a chance" email chain
Juliamon: just... nobody realized they weren't there until someone asked them
RockPusher: This is Google doing what Google have done before - the dunkage is deserved
niccus: if stadia is the safe dunking zone, where's the chaos dunk zone
RandomTrivia: They have to at least *pretend* that they aren't planning to murder Stadia
TheMerricat: yes we do.
TheMerricat: cloud gaming is a disease, it must be extradited
accountmadeforants: We told them it'd fail before they launched, and that we didn't trust them to keep going. It was alright to fail, now they're just giving people who haven't experienced Google false hope, and it's rude.
RockPusher: ie, all of 2 games, total. Ever.
TheMerricat: extradited phone? extradited? how does exterminated become extradited?

Arikell: was going to ask, extradited to where/who?
saiarcot895: eh, exterminated, extradited, exes
teaspoonC: well, the speed of delivery is *involved* in cloud gaming
DeM0nFiRe: I wonder if/how it applies to "Play Anywhere" games that you buy on one platform and can play on both
RockPusher: "Is this a market in which we are competing with the Epic store? Yes? Okay, match their revenue cut!"
Bellpei: I wonder what the split is on Windows Phone?
RockPusher: It's almost as if walled gardens lead to monopoly abuse fugiWow
GapFiller: it worked for Microsoft w/ an entire console
GapFiller: but then again that was 20 yrs ago
GapFiller: much has changed and even the applicable parts of that are radically dfft
DeM0nFiRe: Wasn't Steam before apple app store?
TheMerricat: Steam was essentially the _first_ digital store. there were a few before it but none that had any legs.
Bitter0ne subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 47 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Bitter0ne! (Today's storm count: 15)
accountmadeforants: For a long time people were convinced PC gaming was dying, because most market research bureaus weren't counting (or able to count) Steam sales.
krfsm: first mover advantage is a thing, after all
GapFiller: something else which it feels has been obscured w/ the passage of time is how rough the early yrs of Steam were
DeM0nFiRe: Ah right, interesting
accountmadeforants: GapFiller Oh yeah, people treated it as malware when it was required for Half-Life 2.
TheMerricat: Steam was rough, had a hard row to hoe to convince people to buy in, and didn't sell anything more than Valve and friends games
GapFiller: accountmadeforants yuuup
GapFiller: how easily people forget eh
PharaohBender27: @accountmadeforants I remember when I first used Steam for Total War: Empire in early 2009 or so, having issues with it, when I looked online everyone was saying "Steam is crap"
DeM0nFiRe: I feel like the thing with the app stores is less the specifics of what the split is, but more the fact that you just aren't allowed to bypass that and sell it yourself for ios or the game consoles
llama513: Never watched this before figured I would give it a watch
TheMerricat: that's ironicly been the refrain since the start @pharaohbender27
atlr: and the store infrastructure has been 'built'. app stores need rev. but maybe there is more room to compete on margin with other app stores
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Yeah, but the reasons have changed
Thandres subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 49 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Thandres! (Today's storm count: 16)
atlr: app stores will change and update, but the structure has been created
KinoGami: "physically" likely as a download code for the store
KinoGami: they control the market share
RockPusher: The store cut has to be measured against the value-add of the store
GapFiller: this is also to cite just one example Ubers business model
RockPusher: ♫ Let's go to the mall… with Beej ♫ lrrBEEJ
accountmadeforants: The weird CPU behaviour when running the EGS (in the background) still hasn't been fixed, which is just baffling. How do they spend so much money but spend none of it on the actual store/launcher.
TheMerricat: you wouldn't download a pair of jeans, would you chat?
KeytarCat: Those odd-sizes are hard to find...
GapFiller: TheMerricat only cz 3D printing hasnt gotten that far yet
KinoGami: @TheMerricat i dunno, i got a pretty sweet pair in FFXIV recently
hexy_lexy: @TheMerricat ur not my mom!
Ashton: Where do I get my Levy DLC?
beowuuf: not with the chiral network down
saiarcot895: indie developers would then have to set up their own store for the Levi's model, right?
RockPusher: Valve have a reasonably large amount of good will from me thanks to the very active Linux gaming support
TheMerricat: lol chat you all are beautiful.
Creideiki_SE: @RockPusher Big penguin same.

Metric_Furlong: TheMerricat of course not. I don't wear jeans

Ashton: @AnAnonymousGifter Thanks :)

niccus: how's mario?
KinoGami: but not warioware wario
accountmadeforants: I did get a survey from Nintendo where they asked me if I knew what a PC was and what a smartphone was.
RandomTrivia: That isn't going to produce unbiased data...
RockPusher: saiarcot895 it's so good now that I have reached the point where I sometimes don't even bother to check ProtonDB before purchase
cuttlefishman: Can we send out a survey to ask LRR fans about Gibb
Zaraka00: they shouldve put a captcha at the end thats "please select all boxes that contain mario"
DigitalSeahorse: katesLurk

AdamYMHMI: Is there a generic brand Mario?
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong The PC is the screen thing, right? And a smartphone is I guess a smartwatch with phone capabilities?

This evening @BengineeringTV @WakeUpSuper @BWheelerMTG and @coachNellyMTG are rocking Singleton Pauper, and yes, we have a prerecord video to start the show. | 5PM PST - http://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun || https://www.twitter.com/LRRMtG/status/1388254212551700483
Gnyrinn: So, a Penistone conundrum, then?
DaSunao: I just tried out AI dungeon. My village was burnt down by a dragon, I ran away, the dragon found me and killed me, I went to hell, and got killed again by the devil.
MTBoot: fun fact, assassins is a 9 letter word with only 4 unique characters, giving it a 2.25× character efficiency. there might be other words with better ratios, but it's the best I can think of.
accountmadeforants: DaSunao Ah, I had the dragon thing too when I tried it a while ago. Then I kept running into a girl whose mom died, eventually I told her to go kill the dragon in my stead.
3and4fifths: Sometimes with banned cards
ArcOfTheConclave: This deck wouldn't embarass you?
DaSunao: In hearthstone you can only include 2 copies of a card so a premade deck is much closer to an actual meta deck than in Magic with 4 ofs
LordZarano: Databases being left publicly available on the server is by far the most common way that private data gets "hacked"
kusinohki: banana - 7 letter word with 3 unique characters??
Creideiki_SE: @MTBoot "Mississippi"?
MTBoot: @orkaorkinus please stop screaming
KinoGami: it's hard to build a deck until you get to play with an actual decent deck
kusinohki: zoo-o-letto ??
RandomTrivia: Some people enjoy the deckbuilding aspect of the game, some people don't. Both of those are fine, and there are people who don't realise that both are fine.
RockPusher: No more robots‽ BibleThump
PharaohBender27: Wait, I was busy with a work thing - why is FBBlock lrrBEEEJ away from camera again? Should we be worried?
BusTed: Build in more than one sense.
Lord_Hosk: Its really hard to build a deck when you have been out of any deck builder for more than a year. like I know magic but I wouldnt even have a concept of what cards to put in right now cause I havent played in two years.
fiftymcnasty: Is this like that cool RTS they had a while back
PharaohBender27: OK, that last post was just supposed to have the lrrBEEEJ emote, not the other one
I_Am_Clockwork: Impossible Creatures!?
KinoGami: when i was playing magic i started to build decks around the idea of micro and macro combos. where i had a general mechanic thematic across the deck that a bunch of cards could interact with as well as one or two larger combos that could possibly be pulled off within that
Silver__Light: finally, the elusive beaverduck
RockPusher: Maybe they can finally get pandas to bone-down
MTBoot: oh, it's ATLA wildlife simulator
fiftymcnasty: @I_Am_Clockwork yeah that was a great game
xerjen: Not? Now I'm disappointed :(
Mai_Andra: "A fish and a duck gives a"- wait, that was the other story...
RandomTrivia: Isn't this just the Taiko no Tatsujin outfit selections? lrrBEEJ
saiarcot895: @PharaohBender27 he excused himself and left, i think
PharaohBender27: @PharaohBender27 Ah
NotCainNorAbel: dish?
LordZarano: Like the magic cards
KinoGami: ah. the slaughterhouse ooption
krfsm: don't worry about it
Featherweight_: lets game it out mostlyu

Earthenone: adam savidan, presumably
OrkaOrkinus: The Spiffing Brit?
PMAvers: And what combination of animals makes the most delicious burgers?
Silver__Light: can your zoo? can your zoo.
NotCainNorAbel: lrrCAMERON lrrADAM
KeytarCat: I've been watching someone do that on YT for the past month or so...
I_Am_Clockwork: Serge would
AdamYMHMI: Can you do a New Game+ and play as Upton Sinclaire?
MTBoot: I was thinking of morality of mating a blue whale with a platypus, but I'm glad it was meat factory instead...
krfsm: there's ALWAYS cruelty potential, see how people treat sims in The Sims
DaSunao: You say that, but even in Pokemon Snap people are out here yeeting apples at poor innocent pokemon
LordZarano: Sounds like something LetsGameItOut would do
GapFiller: The Sims has never been the same since they let sims just climb outtta the pool
krfsm: now I wonder how many horror show Jurassic Parks showed up in that Jurassic Park builder game that was played on LRR streams a while back.
Silver__Light: @DaSunao the new one even has those balls that makes pokemon glow, making them unable to hide from predators
GapFiller: is it cruel to be kinda happy yr can still bean Pokemon in the head w/ apples like in the original
Earthenone: is the zoo simulator going to replace some of that AI dungeon content we all lost?
ArcOfTheConclave: Can you make Nina Tucker?
DaSunao: @GapFiller Apples stick on the spines of Cacnea
MTBoot: listen, if the hybrid-horse glue factory makes more money than the rhinocorn petting zoo, then who is to say yours isn't more successful?
KinoGami: @ArcOfTheConclave ed.... ward....
kusinohki: more like a battle arena
GapFiller: Silver__Light an associate was v enthusiatic abt Illumina balls inna conv abt lobbing apples at their heads
xerjen: There were some casualties?
PMAvers: A meat factory? So basically the usual Minecraft creation of Serge's?
KeytarCat: @ArcOfTheConclave hooo boy, time to write up some war criminals
dingdingboom: its not a meat factory for animals
RockPusher: Narrative predestination
PharaohBender27: So, it was going as intended Kappa
saiarcot895: did you spare any expenses for the programmer? :P

RockPusher: Dinosaurs eating you is the core experience of a Jurassic Park
MTBoot: The Jurassic park movies don't exist in the Jurassic park universe, they do in your universe, Paul. You should know better lrrAWESOME
Snowcookies: "from the dinos perspective"
Lord_Hosk: If you eat the guests... it makes room for more guests to come in. you can sell more tickets!
Silver__Light: they do, world had the little girl let them out into the world
PMAvers: The customer base goes down, but the morale of the dinosaurs goes up by eating them.
krfsm: that's why they can get out, the parks were built for them
KinoGami: the idea of dinosaurs in pens isn't much different from the rest of predators we put on display
kusinohki: garo garo?
PharaohBender27: Oh dear
Kaorti: rabble rabble
RandomTrivia: Welp
Earthenone: either the guests give you money for dinosaur food, or the guests can BE said dinosaur food, either way works for the dinosaurs
Favre_the_Undead: NFT = bad

GapFiller: the real news ofc will be when a reputable company yr wdnt expect to lie w/ the dogs turns out to have fleas
NotCainNorAbel: yep, I hope this equates to blockchain about 18 months ago
kusinohki: lrrcoin, coming soon
Mai_Andra: "You got a Johnny-coin! Hell of a day, isn't it?"
MTBoot: I get how, but I don't understand WHY
DaSunao: Why are NFT's bad? I understand that mined cryptocurrency is shite, but why is everyone up in arms about NFT?
GapFiller: NFT's aint even tings
RandomTrivia: It has value because someone else probably thinks it has value and they're probably stupid enough to buy it from you
aerobeing: What it means depends on a random person's imagination.
Favre_the_Undead: lrrEFF_HF
GapFiller: its literally the 'I've got a bridge to sell' of C21
Manae: Beejcoin: randomly replaced any other mined currency
RatekStormcrow: Currency is basically the same as an NFT :)
PMAvers: It's basically the "buy a star" thing.
TStodden: Phase 1: Make NFT's, Phase 2: ???, Phase 3: Profit!!!
RandomTrivia: @DaSunao The way they are now is basically the most energy-intensive pyramid scheme
MTBoot: @dasunao because of the computing power required, killing the planet etc
aerobeing: I'm thinking it's like an "adult" version of some sort of a children imagination game.
RockPusher: If it were just a scam it wouldn't be as bad as being a scam based on environmentally deleterious proof-of-work schemes that are unnecessary for the scam
RandomTrivia: Important and educational related reading is on the Greater Fool Theory
Rhilenova: It's basically the same as those "buy a star" things
DaSunao: @DaSunao I can buy a nft of a tweet? How is that burning energy?
LordZarano: It's a shame NFT doesn't have an E in it. So we can't parody it by putting Environment or Emissions in it
PharaohBender27: So thing is, what exactly does ownership entail in that case?
RandomTrivia: @DaSunao Every time a transaction takes place it uses very complex cryptographic calculations that use a hideous amount of processing power
dingdingboom: bragging rights I guess
SquareDotCube: I have this new NFT idea I want to call the Brooklyn Bridge...
NotCainNorAbel: I have some stars to sell
GapFiller: and now here we are w/ people willing to burn the equivalent of enough power to run a small country to claim they own shitty jpegs
Kaorti: i.e. a solution in search of a problem
RockPusher: It all boils down to distributed ledgers being cool but have very very very few applications that aren't better served by other methods
aerobeing: Stupid from one perspective. Profitable for certain people from another,
aerobeing: *.
RandomTrivia: @Kaorti Capitalism! benginFacepalm
DaSunao: @DaSunao Oh, okay. So it has the entire backend associated with it like bitcoin in order to trade them
GapFiller: DaSunao yes its exactly like bitcoin but worse
RandomTrivia: @DaSunao Precisely
KeytarCat: @Kaorti I'm sure we'll find a real problem it solves at some point...
DaSunao: @GapFiller I think mining bitcoin is easily worse
TStodden: Considering that Sega Sammy's stock is like $3 / share...
NotCainNorAbel: don't we already have this with Trademarks and copyright
aerobeing: Heavy machinery?
KinoGami: Yakuza
saiarcot895: @NotCainNorAbel hence the problem of what "ownership" in the NFT world means, i think
DaSunao: Sega has a theme park
RandomTrivia: @NotCainNorAbel Yeah but now you can own a string of data that points to a thing, and say you own the rights that string of data that points to that thing
GapFiller: DaSunao worse is relative we can easily settle on both of them being unambiguously awful
SquareDotCube: sounds like they're losing money to exorbitant\ salaries more than anything...
krfsm: and D&D!
Favre_the_Undead: NFTs and Cryptos are currently bad
PMAvers: I mean, it's Hasbro and Wizards, so... probably?
Favre_the_Undead: Hasbro and Disney own our childhood
PMAvers: They put out literal Monopoly blind boxes.
TStodden: TenCent has a partial ownership in a crapload of other companies...
TheMerricat: NFT amimbros?
Silver__Light: it definitely seems like something that is being made into a novelty that will eventually be one of those technologies that we take for granted, qr codes use to be the next big thing, but now they are glorified barcodes
kusinohki: reminds me of the "board meeting with microsoft so we can laugh at them for wanting to buy us"
beowuuf: non fun is right at the start of the NFT
RockPusher: Beej has to go, his planet needs him! lrrBEEJ
elkae: Bye Beej, poor Beej, getting shooed LUL
accountmadeforants: Nintendo might do it, but they'll misunderstand the whole thing and try to set up their own blockchain. But it's actually just a SFTP server with passwords for each "owner".

PharaohBender27: Time for the PH Balance!
RockPusher: Heather has all the room now!

RandomTrivia: @PharaohBender27 Oh that's VERY good
KeytarCat: Nintendo is SO GOOD at what it does, but so weird for the market
RockPusher: luxuriate in the comfort of space!
Lord_Hosk: Giant Paul and Heather! the best point
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
elkae: Heatheeeerrr iiiiinnnnn spaaaaace!
PharaohBender27: @RandomTrivia Oh I am *not* the one who came up with that
RockPusher: The PH balance has been restored!
PharaohBender27: @RandomTrivia Think I first saw @GapFiller using that term
Lord_Hosk: Nice RockPusher
TStodden: Nintendo has a tendency to work with "withered technology" more than cutting edge, mostly for expenses.
RandomTrivia: Nintendo has become one of very few companies who still cling to the old ways of "Make a good product and people will buy it"
RockPusher: The meddlesome Beej ions have been buffered away
KinoGami: i used that video chat function once
kusinohki: I'm an old border line luddite.... I've never done a video call
Lord_Hosk: THe Wii-U was so much more powerful of a unit that never took off because no one bought it
KinoGami: if i can avoid it i rather avoid broadcasting my face
GapFiller: did yr cover the Tetris ting?
RockPusher: Nintendo feel very slow and deliberate as a corporate culture which I think insulates them from chasing silly tech-bro shit

RandomTrivia: We're free of the Taiko Drum timeloop!
Earthenone: how are we going to get the taiko drums out of the radio?
RandomTrivia: @Earthenone Crowbar probably
RockPusher: Ian inside a radio is generally more of a TTSF thing
DeM0nFiRe: "inside my radio" seems like something that could be said on tinker tailor solder fry
LordZarano: It's a Rhythm Platformer. I think I played it once?
MTBoot: it's like your inside voice and outside voice? inside radio is just quiet
accountmadeforants: Were you going to try Rhythm Doctor, or are you gonna wait till its out of Early Access?
RandomTrivia: How long do we have to wait until Ikenfell can be on Rhythm Cafe?
RockPusher: wheelerMuldcb wheelerY wheelerH

RandomTrivia: This week's was SUCH a trainwreck but you made it entertaining anyway
Snowcookies: It was edgy
MTBoot: the spy book was incredible. mostly because of Adam. the book was awful
lirazel64: Pig in a blanket, that book.
NotCainNorAbel: well everyone is dead
accountmadeforants: You three have such spectacular energy with these books.
BrookJustBones: @PharaohBender27 was Adams persona not PiF?
Earthenone: to be fair, its hard to read that book with your wallet so thick with casino winnings
elkae: Yeah Beej died on the cover
Kaorti: animal crossing with bonus judgement
Metric_Furlong: thicc wallet
lirazel64: With added sexism
KeytarCat: I mean, we shot the guy first
PharaohBender27: @BrookJustBones No, that was an Adam's Gamehaus thing

RandomTrivia: We must have cat ears!
MTBoot: walking simulator? I thought we were done talking about Death stranding

Metric_Furlong: was fairly close this time around
Metric_Furlong: but, Appleseed XIII won-out in the end
Earthenone: good old jhonny
TehAmelie: do you mean Jonny?
Earthenone: jaw knee :)
TehAmelie: i always wanted to know more about his sister Jehnny. . .
Metric_Furlong: almost
Juliamon: He's drawn some cowgirls, anyway
TehAmelie: maybe something like this https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0906665/
Earthenone: now, when you say cowgirls....
Metric_Furlong: (the obfuscation for it having been 'At the Core of Misfortune', clearly :p )
Earthenone: is there a Ushi musume or something?
Metric_Furlong: 'Try a One-Shot' was the 1973 Tennis anime 'Aim for the Ace'
Metric_Furlong: 'The Descent of Airman' was Allison & Lillia (one of the 'having to go by the premise rather than the title' obfuscations there)
