Metric_Furlong: I was confused for a minute because I didn't remember something like that in Dragon's Dogma, before I realised the reference to me was just 'talking about something unusually nice' :p
TehAmelie: i believe i have to finish that game too
Metric_Furlong: *niche
TheMerricat: So was that obscure VIDEO GAME endings (ala the normal ending to the old FTL game Dungeon Master) or obscure video game ENDINGS (ala the alternate ending to the old FTL game Dungeon Master)?
beowuuf: that you for that reference hyper focused to me thermerricat :)
beowuuf: I just meant obscuring a normal ending :)
Metric_Furlong: although on the note of things, my video game poll progress has now gotten to actually playing the second option, Lunar: Silver Star Harmony
TheMerricat: Ah the ending to Death Stranding then :P
Metric_Furlong: which is... definitely a game
Metric_Furlong: that is a statement I can make with confidence about it, and which is going to be intelligable to most audiences
Metric_Furlong: unlike a lot of the other statements I could make about
TheMerricat: Is Lunar the game I keep thinking of having the tag line "Hope springs Eternal, Eternal Blue" or something like that back when video games still came in boxes at Walmart?
beowuuf: I love that DM ending exists. I found it on my own playing the amiga version before I got better access to the internet. I'd seen the fun 'easter egg' in print media and guides about using a see throw walls spell at the main door, and seen guides on completeing the game, but until I had the game myself and went 'wait.... the original mission is to do something else...' I had to try it twice with no thought of it working because the first time I used the firestaff cheat near the real ending...
Metric_Furlong: TheMerricat that was the sequel to it, iirc
Metric_Furlong: (which did not have a re-release on any of the consoles I own, unlike the first one)
TheMerricat: @beowuuf lol me too. The first thing I did when I first played Dungeon Master was teach myself all the spells via trial and error using the runes. Once I got the see through walls spell and found Lord Order.... I really loved FTL games for how much of the real game they actually packed into their little novellas. Unlike say Starglider, which had a wonderful story in the novella but only partially tied into the game.
TheMerricat: @Metric_Furlong figures. :)
beowuuf: Yeah, i trial and error'd to try and figure out the spell for the gor rune... which was never used (they took out whatever fireball potion they were going to have with it)
Metric_Furlong: so, by way of illustration my experience with it so far was seeing the aesthetic and going 'Oh, this is very 90s anime' then getting to the voice acting and going "oh. this is very US dubbed 90s anime"
TheMerricat: LOL @Metric_Furlong I'm assuming no JP voice options with subtiling then :)
Metric_Furlong: (something not entirely unexpected; there is a clip from it which used to occasionally appear in various 'video game voice acting' compilation videos back in the day)

TheMerricat: @beowuuf On one hand I'm a bit sad about all the stuff I found out had been cut from the game once the internet was a thing and I could read about all of that, on the other hand a lot of the unimplemented stuff lent an air of mystery to the game that otherwise would have been a bit boring
Metric_Furlong: TheMerricat lol, no. this was first released in the 90s, after all :p
TheMerricat: of course :)
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: what I was a bit more surprised by was the third impression upon having encountered more of the script
Metric_Furlong: because, well, for a game that is fairly generic fantasy JRPG that script gets...
Metric_Furlong: odd
TheMerricat: On the other hand isn't that ALSO a trademark of 90's anime ? :P
Metric_Furlong: to the point of my goin "Oh. this is an ADV american dubbed 90s anime" :p
beowuuf: themerricat: yeah, funny how the mind can explode with possibilities when you don't have the firm facts :)
beowuuf: also, the epic vs apple story is starting to sound more and more like a mel brooks film, or wag the dog, or something crazy like that!
Metric_Furlong: (I don't know if ADV even still exist as a company any more, so I make no guarantees of how much sense that statement will make to anyone)
Metric_Furlong: TheMerricat yes but also no
Raiz0k: Hi all.
Metric_Furlong: TheMerricat like... this definitely isn't Ghost Stories

TheMerricat: The old Atari ST had an entire line of programing language based on Basic programs and extensions called STOS Basic.
TheMerricat: That was 100% just for kids to build their own games.
ritchards: does mean a flood of shitty games?
LordZarano: Sound like building a game from Unity assets?
PharaohBender27: OK, even trying to clip from the VOD isn't working. :\
Crokoking: even big engines like unreal has a visual programming language
kusinohki: "watch and play game maker"
GapFiller: lrrGRAHAM x lrrALEX are no doubt already salivating at the W&P possibilities
TheMerricat: Anyone remember ZZT?My brother loved making games out of that
Raiz0k: The biggest problem is probably going to be dredging out the "so bad it's good" from the ocean of "bad".
TheMerricat: @GapFiller as long as W+P has been on hiatus thanks to all of 'this' they definitely should have a huge backlog of quality garbage games now.
TheMerricat: Roblox = Proto Minecraft.
MolaMolaphant: iirc people were doing that with disney infinity? and disney didn't like that? I don't remember the details of that...
Raiz0k: Holy crap, I thought Roblox is way newer than MC....
EvilBadman: @GapFiller I don't the goal of watch and play is /wanting/ to find stuff to play like this, more exploring why things where made commercially.
EvilBadman: were*
Orgmastron: Roblox is *huge* with kids
somecall_metim: if you don't hear much about it, it can't be that controversial
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k nope, Notch even started off coding for Roblox.
MolaMolaphant: oh wow I had no idea roblox was older than minecraft. By like five years.
kusinohki: "no one goes there anymore... it's too crowded"
MTGRanger: Roblox is more of a platform. It has a studio you can make games in and you can load in other people's games. I looked into it. It has an in platform currency that you can spend on people's games which devs can cash in for money
TheMerricat: And @MolaMolaphant infinity was explicitly made for the purpose of people doing that but Disney realized late that they could make more money if they controlled the means of production and... well killed infinity.
LordZarano: @MolaMolaphant What, seriously?
EvilBadman: I mean i just watched a Polygon video about Neopets stuff and that game is from '99.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Yeah, I've checked, it's a whopping 5 years of a difference. I'm trying to adjust to the perspective shift rn xD.
somecall_metim: Eve online: A game where a war happened over anime
kusinohki: anime in general or a specific title?
Metric_Furlong: somecall_metim I've seen forums like that Kappa
Raiz0k: So the inverse of a lot of anime?
somecall_metim: @Metric_Furlong "Your waifu is trash vs no u?"

GamesAndInk: I feel like there's an audience of star-eyed youths who want to be game devs who didn't see Mario Maker as a way to play at making games, but Garage appeals to them
DeM0nFiRe: Oh idk if it was mentioned already but there's a few different things for making your own games on switch. I think Petit Computer and RPG Maker are a couple examples I think there's more
DeM0nFiRe: Petit Computer is notable in that you can actually program in it, using BASIC
Metric_Furlong: Raiz0k that's an impressively cursed hypothetical
DoodlestheGreat: Should we take bets as to when someone will build peens in the thing?
TheMerricat: @DeM0nFiRe I mean there are still folk out there using the old Campaign tools for Neverwinter Nights.....
EvilBadman: doodles Day 0
somecall_metim: make people programme a game in the same language as the OG elite was made in. Have them create with heavy restrictions
TheMerricat: Never mind I'm slow someimtes.
Raiz0k: @Metric_Furlong The Amari (?) Titan almost looks like His hair anyway ;).
DoodlestheGreat: Yes yes, but how many minutes? :tf:
LordZarano: Games that spawn endless spiders and cause everything to lag...
felipe_modesto: Oh god I took Pascal
Raiz0k: Seriously 'though, what I wonder about is how friendly the UI is, vis á vis the graphical interface and the Switch's pad-based interface. I'm hoping for some revolutionary UX on that front.
Metric_Furlong: Raiz0k missing some 'measuring explosion art in One Piece manga panels to scientifically prove how powerful the characters are' to really hit the top level of cursed, but impressive :p

Steelwolf171: Gotta learn to walk before you run
badpandabear: Objective C? Is that used anymore? I thought iOS went to something else? I'm generally curious here
somecall_metim: do you think having the ability to learn a human language helps in learning a programming language?
EvilBadman: Like I mentioned above, the low price point is pretty intriguing
kusinohki: @TheMerricat I remember coordinate based programming that moved a turtle. not sure if that's what you're talking about
GapFiller: it feels my education here was somewhat arse backwards due to starting w/ Motorola 68K Assembly then jumping straight into C from there
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat I do, and also doesn't the spirit of Logo live on in Scratch :)?
saiarcot895: @badpandabear MacOS apps might be? iOS probably uses Swift
Izandai: PrideLaugh
TheMerricat: @kusinohki it probably was. I don't know many programing languages that refered to the cursor as a turtle :)

felipe_modesto: Apple is a trademark.
DeM0nFiRe: I learned programming mostly by teaching myself Ruby with RPG Maker XP so I always look back on it fondly
Metric_Furlong: they don't want to, but their hands are forced Kappa
GerrardUK: Trademarks you do actualy have to fight for or you will lose it. It's a bit weird.
TheMerricat: OK, I would understand Blizzard a bit more if they actually SOLD any of those products that were listed in the article with Diablo on them.
Izandai: I assume the dog is an asshole.
evercursedrpg: This Blizzard trademark claim shows just how dumb IP law is in the US. Yes, I completely blame IP law on this
CAKHost: I don't know which I feel is more ridiculous: Fox already having merch planned for a new character I think or Blizzard being upset because the dog is named Diablo
Karfsma778: @GerrardUK yes, but also no. Only if it's ACTUALLY like, breaching the trademark, when it's pretty clearly not
DoodlestheGreat: @izandai, it's a Fox animated series. EVERYONE is an asshole.
Izandai: This might be a situation where Blizzard *has* to go on the attack, or else they risk losing their trademark altogether. Because that's how trademarks work for some reason.
Raiz0k: @Metric_Furlong Hah, never knew that meme had such cursed depths. Chapeau bas to you for witnessing that and remaining sane, citizen!
TheMerricat: @GerrardUK yes, you have to actively enforce your trademarks, but that doesn't mean you have to frivolously attempt to defend your trademarks. IF there is litterally zero chance that the use of the mark could be confused as being approved by you, then there is zero reason to sue/C+D over it.
GapFiller: CAKHost nah having the merch ready to go is just SOP
GapFiller: gotta monetise them assets asap
GapFiller: yeh Bartmania
DoodlestheGreat: It's a short chain, too.
Mangledpixel: a fox becomes a mouse
GapFiller: those of us who are old enough remember the crudely drawn filler
Raiz0k: Yeah, what the TheMerricat said, clearly a lawyer knee-jerk.
kusinohki: lawyers on retainer? they get paid regardless so might as well have them do something??
saiarcot895: next week: Disney buys Blizzard to get rid of trademark lawsuit
TheMerricat: Just a reminder chat, your trademark only applies in the sector of the industry that you've applied for it to be in. If your mark is registered as a video game trademark, then you can't go after a farmer with the same last name as your mark.
keroan0: The thing is that they "have" to contest all infringments or they lose the trademark in the future
EvilBadman: the hope is one company relents and does a settlement before it hits a judge
LarkSachrosis: Def feels more like Blizzard is 'defending' their trademark in this case to avoid eroding into a slippery slope.
beowuuf: dog rpg
beowuuf: *arpg
GamesAndInk: #FreeDiablo
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : on the surface, absolutely right, in practice, remember Apple suing that one grocery :)?
NojhLivic: The lawyers are going "Whee, free money"
LarkSachrosis: Voiced by Tony Hale, if that tells us something about the character.
GapFiller: thing is historically a lotta wars happend like that too
GapFiller: nobody wants to do the terrible thing but here we are
EvilBadman: Beej surmising 99% of all corporation interactions with each other
GapFiller: and everyone really does have to follow thru
blip2004: @TheMerricat that may be true, but it doesn't stop places like Monster Cables (remember them?) from suing mini-golf places and other ridiculous lawsuits
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k but to be fair to that, they were suing a grocery service that was going online to deliver groceries so there was an actual overlap of industries that could lead to confusion.
misteline: this is the kind of nonsense that arbitration should be forced on
OmnipotentTrevor: That's why Disney needs to finish buying everything. Once everyone works for them, there will never be another trademark dispute again Kappa
accountmadeforants: Wanna mess around in a broken legal system after lunch? -Sure I'm free for the next several months, I could go for a long, drawn out process and making hundreds of thousands of dollars.
TheMerricat: bleh I just got my "Your package was delivered" ping from amazon, I don't want to miss the chill takes on this to go down and get my stuff. :/
Metric_Furlong: to be fair, there's a sizeable audience for dunks on Stadia. You could probably fill a couple of stadia with all of it
felipe_modesto: Yooo, Montreal Shoutouts!
PharaohBender27 sees what @Metric_Furlong did there
TheMerricat: Cancun!!
TheMerricat: con
Snowcookies: Jade probably gave them a offer
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : except the industry was selling groceries, not selling electronics. "Selling online" is a trade channel, not an industry. To be fair, IIRC the grocery store did some underhanded marketing that triggered Apple's lawyers into action.
felipe_modesto: At the same time, devs move between studios rather frequently... so this was bound to happen regardless?

orellien2773: If its not specifically anyone's job to do something, it's the Producer's job.
MolaMolaphant: I understand what a producer does MUCH better after watching Eizouken
felipe_modesto: @orellien2773 it's the producer's job to get someone else to do it Kappa
RockPusher: [ sips in owl ]
LarkSachrosis: Or someone who used their clout to get a project rolling.
orellien2773: @felipe_modesto Soemtimes, yeah! The brass knows how to do it, by knowing who can do it, even if it has to be themselves sometimes :D
Raiz0k: A Canadian developer named "[I'm] sorry" in French? Please Paul, stop trolling already.
Akaiatana: In cartoon making, producer is usually the group of people feeding and taking work from the animators, making sure that all shots are done. So, throughput
TheMerricat: unless it's google
felipe_modesto: @orellien2773 do they tho? Producers generally know who is responsible for stuff but they middle-manage decision-making and strategy, i've never seen a producer do anything more than that. Well, other than constantly bullshitting their executives or team.

criptixx_: AH the great bearded paul
Mangledpixel: flosfikal
somecall_metim: @criptixx_ I wish my beard could match paul's
GamesAndInk: Falafel argument
saiarcot895: phone: a thin rectangular object with a LED display
Izandai: PrideLaugh
kusinohki: @saiarcot895 sounds like my old calculator
Izandai: So Apple is saying "Our phone isn't special" and Epic is saying "Your phone is special!"
Raiz0k: In fairness, that aligns with Apple's marketing ;).
GapFiller: this stuff is actual law here in Albion as The Duck Test
TheMerricat: @raiz0k the Apple lawyer's literally ask an Epic witness to explain a reference to Kotaku in a quote and wanted him to explain what a Kotaku was.... :D
PharaohBender27: i.e. natural monopolies, like utility companies
TheMerricat: you are allowed to have in a monopoly in US law you aren't allowed to use a monopoly to prevent competition
somecall_metim: US stance: Being successful isn't the problem, killing off any and all competition is
mowdownjoe: Monopolies always have the potential to be abused. *glares at ISPs in the US*
Drasvin: US law is fine with monopolies as long as they're not abusing their customers
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat please tell me that "a" was your artistic license, just for my sides' not bursting sake :D.
TheMerricat: phone speach to text :)
accountmadeforants: Hang on, Apple *constantly* talks about PCs.
LurkerSpine: I mean, their lawsuits say that
jonnykefka: "sega does what nintendon't"
somecall_metim: @jonnykefka no longer sell consoles?
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : honestly, would've believed either way, as someone said at the start, the whole case sounds like a Mel Brooks movie so far :D.
beowuuf: so you try to fit the device in to a cube...
TheMerricat: ;)
Raiz0k: :)
Alex_Frostfire: It makes sense to define these things, in my eyes, but it does end up sounding like, "Oh, I know that it is, but why don't you explain it to my friend here?"
koristi_: Isn't a gaming console a case against Epic accusing Apple of a monopoly?
kusinohki: is epic a sandwhich?
Alex_Frostfire: There's a whole philosophical area around "what is a game."
GapFiller: something something Wittgenstein deck chairs
LordZarano: Is Photoshop a game?
jonnykefka: I'm just fascinated that the judge hasn't flayed Epic alive for the degree to which this was premeditated
koristi_: Sony isn't obligated to give access to anyone to publish games for PlayStation.
orellien2773: @koristi_ Possibly, if you consider an iPhone or iPad equivalent to a game console. But you could also argue that game consoles are much more limited in functionality (since they're mostly only there to run games), while smartphones and tablets are hugely flexible devices.
orellien2773: Welcome to the problem of classification...
rainbowmage42: I wonder how common the things EPIC has done so far happens in Corporate Law cases? If the judge has not done anything about EPIC's planning of this it might suggest it happens commonly
Raiz0k: What annoys me about the whole case is that the blackmail-level cut of all those local monopolies is one issue. The other issue is Google, Apple etc. introducing arbitrary rules with little recourse. *That* is probably more important to the smaller, independent game devs. The fact the Epic haven't (?) raised this point is telling.
TheMerricat: @koristi_ on the other hand if someone managed to figure out how to sell or publish games for the PlayStation without Sony's approval and Sony tried to block it they definitely could be sued
RockPusher: "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description…. But I know it when I see it… "
GapFiller: what yr saying Beej is that at some point the ability to put Doom onna device will be legally relevant
rainbowmage42: I might suggest this issue to the Lawyer Youtuber 'LegalEagle' and see if he would be willing to do a video in this topic
GerrardUK: @Raiz0k I think that goes from a monopoly problem to a cartel thing, but not sure of the details.
koristi_: @themerricat If Sony tried to then stop the selling of those games yeah.
BurgerGamer: computing devices will be categorized into 3 tiers based on whether they can play doom and crysis
smarttoad: Hello
Crokoking: if they want a legal decision on this they kinda had to do it or they wouldn't have standing
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k I would say "oligopoly", since "cartel" implies a specific form of cooperation, but the end effect for the victims is the same.
MTGRanger: Really, my attitude is just "Let them Fight."
orellien2773: Yeah, this is about really long-term money.
Angnor33: Epic is doing this for all the little guys they stepped on to get where they are today.
TheMerricat: ^^^
rainbowmage42: Unfortunately, there are too many people on the internet that act like EPIC are the good guys because.. they are smarter than other people on the internet
misteline: If Apple loses here its the first step to take down a lot of the other market places.
GapFiller: passing yrsln off as a romantic outsider startup is self evidently preferable to looking like a misbehaving megacorp
Izandai: They had to do this if this was really about ideals, but that they did this isn't proof that this was about ideals?
OrkaOrkinus: Yeah but whoever goes first has to be big enough to risk it
TheMerricat: @rainbowmage42 Don't worry there's plenty of us who still consider epic Anakin Skywalker of video game publishers once they went Tencent and epic game store on us
GapFiller: its SOP for companies of a certain size these days
DeM0nFiRe: Obviously Epic are doing this all for themselves, but I do think if they win the long term is better for smaller entities, particularly if the outcome is more app stores allowed on platforms
rocketjohn: It reminds me of the deliberate trespasses to legally test the law on whether right to roam should be a thing.
cyanMu42: Maybe everyone would have expected them to have double - motives even if they tried to not be so open about it.
orellien2773: Honestly, just in general, there's too many people on the internet who think they know what's legally right here. This is a complicated legal question, and it's totally fine for lay people to go "I don't know"... and so few are willing to do that.
tenthtechpriest: who is morally correct? probably neither of them?
koristi_: Doesn't Epic have enough money already?
rocketjohn: "I don't know" are the words that too many people are afraid of, especially on the internet
Alex_Frostfire: Personally, I don't care who wins, because I have no stake in either side and the long-term impacts are complicated to guess at.
mowdownjoe: I mean, I have no love for Apple, but if Epic's average case was "making less money" and "pissing off a bunch of people by using fanboys in thier pissing contest"... maybe don't do that?
TheMerricat: The thing about Android and Google Play is that there are plenty of app stores for Android that don't go through Google.
Izandai: WHAT
orellien2773: Yeah, the discovery for this case is just so, so delicious...
rainbowmage42: @TheMerricat Yea, but i would paraphrase George Carlin about his thoughts on stupid people and then apply it to any fanatical fanbase on the internet or gaming market
Raiz0k: Yeaaaah, but how many users do they have as a percentage of the total?
DoodlestheGreat: How the sausage is made.
Spacecarl: Also this is getting us all kinds of information we would have NEVER seen otherwise
RockPusher: In rem lawsuits are fun - eg South Dakota v. Fifteen Impounded Cats
SevenishMagpies: they should bring in all the xboxes and ipads and iphones and forget to take them back so the court can play all the games
mowdownjoe: @TheMerricat This is why I'm glad open platforms are a thing, and why I don't like Apple's closed system.
rainbowmage42: Judge: The new iPad or the iPad 2? Which is older counselor?
accountmadeforants: "It's the iPad where Amazon says it's the 2021 iPad (but we're not calling it that, that's on them! They're doing our branding wrong!)"
jonnykefka: @RockPusher in rem lawsuits are always hilarious at least in name
Spacecarl: and getting numbers about how much say, Epic is paying the studios for the free games and stuff
LordZarano: @TheMerricat For example F-Droid, which only has open source apps
Dazedrago: Hopefully, kingdom hearts names won't come into the discussion if square and disney get drawn in as franchises lol
cuttlefishman: Male Shep is boring
Raiz0k: *Bioshock: Infinite cover art memories intensify...
Orgmastron: They didn't do the flip cover thing until 3 IIRC
MrMatternot: Ah, Anita S. has a dissertation on this.
TheMerricat: @lordzarano mostly open source. you can set it up to include apps with some closed source code.
Scrubbodiestobears: oh don't worry people'll find something to be mad at them about
niccus: you can also manipulate the generation message so that it's shepard and 7 garruses/etc
misteline: @scrubbodiestobears not enough Tali! I'm furious!!!
rainbowmage42: I didnt mind the ME3 ending when it first came out. At least not to the same level other people reacted to it.
mallyx0: yo
PharaohBender27: katesPalm
Izandai: Jesus fucking christ...
Juliamon: Is only game, why you heff to be mad etc
GapFiller: strong move bro
Izandai: PrideLaugh
MrMatternot: Juicy!
TheMerricat: ME3, GoT, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, there are millions of examples of how it's hard to come up with a good ending to a popular property
noisyblizzard: that's the definition of a wierd flex
TheMerricat: part of the reason why I'm sort of glad half-life three never happened
josh___something: respect is a strong word
Snowcookies: I've been on a bus where a guy told me about some of the worst pranks they pulled on someone.
cyanMu42: Some people post their crimes on social media.
PharaohBender27: Or they've seen it work *cough*Snyder cut*cough*
SpoonfullOfSugar: wait, what?
rainbowmage42: There are some Anime that have vague ambiguous endings that give no closure. And i think they do that as a way to avoid backlash from fans that wanted a specific ending
MrMatternot: @themerricat I like the overwhelming hopelessness of the unreleased HL3 story.
NojhLivic: So a distinct lack of empathy?
Izandai: That is deeply fucked up.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Probably why they released HL:Alyx also...
kusinohki: I'm listening
Mai_Andra: Golden Geese
rainbowmage42: Its the same reason in movies when they dont show the faces of the enemy army guys. So when they die on screen the audience does not have any emotional or empathetic attachment to them
cyanMu42: conferencable
LordZarano: The podcast "Conversations With People Who Hate Me" is very enlightening
Raiz0k: Nah, it's more of a "I'm in an echo chamber usually, but now I'm not, let me express myself in exactly the same way".
saiarcot895: remote play together
Raiz0k: Ah yes, the Boomer Skype vs the Zoomer Zoom.

LRRbot: Desert Bus for Hope will return next year, start saving your donation money now!
saiarcot895: Sony had their state of play last week; it was more like "state of ratchet and clank"
PharaohBender27: @saiarcot895 So there's an annual fundraiser called Desert Bus for Hope, and because swearing is forbidden for that fundraiser, people say "bus" instead of the swear.
accountmadeforants: 🤔
LordZarano: !bug
LRRbot: If you have any suggestions for LRRbot, post them at
saiarcot895: @saiarcot895 interesting, thanks
MrMatternot: My fav Hades bug is that you used to be able to walk through the doors I. the final zone, without completing the room.
TheMerricat: it's interesting that the reply feature on mobile just looks like a person atting at themselves
accountmadeforants: Plug in a PS/2 keyboard, obvs.
RockPusher: fugiBUs
RockPusher: fugiBus
rainbowmage42: You would think Sony would have made a PS keyboard. Especially whne they were still making VAIO
saiarcot895: @TheMerricat it's because it's starting a thread behind-the-scenes. FWIW it looks like i'm replying to myself as well
saiarcot895: *on desktop

Mai_Andra: Game Genie xiv1Goob

kusinohki: when does a sneaker become a boot?
rocketjohn: are hi-tops boots?
Mai_Andra: When it loads software?
evercursedrpg: But what if the sneakers ARE Playstation 5's?
GamesAndInk: I have five... toes in my PS5 shoes
Coyoteofthenine: Easier to get the shoes then the ps5
rainbowmage42: If i buy shoes I'm wearing the shoes. No collecting here
Akaiatana: Frogs in your shoes helps you jump
GamesAndInk: Build a terrarium in your shoes that can remain a closed system for decades.
GapFiller: yr wonder whether Lady Dumitrescu ever wears sneakers or is shes just a heels all the time kinda gal
yomidian: auuuugh no im going to get sad about this again
RockPusher: Frog-Hatch Shoes is a much better name for a game studio
yomidian: skylanders?
felipe_modesto: Skyulanders
rainbowmage42: skylanders
SevenishMagpies: @RockPusher frog haven shoes
saiarcot895: @GapFiller probably heels, easier to crush people underneath her
rainbowmage42: I remember that craze. Moms were asking and looking everywhere for certain characters
TheMerricat: if you seen her basement obviously she needs platform heels doesn't matter how tall she is the thing has leak problems
cuttlefishman: Star Control was great
felipe_modesto: werent they the first to the NFC game thing?
Akaiatana: Paul loves controlling Stark
DeM0nFiRe: oooof
Raiz0k: Ah yes, the CoD mines.
rocketjohn: whaa
Metric_Furlong: sad_trombone.wav
Decaped: Activision! ::jazz hands::
rocketjohn: womp womp
Izandai: COD isn't really that brown these days.
Izandai: From what I've seen.
Akaiatana: SnowCrash :P
GapFiller: saiarcot895 yeh crushing people underfoot just doesnt feel the same if yr doing it wearing Chuckie T's
felipe_modesto: isnt 1984 warzone terribly colorless?
rainbowmage42: I miss ReBoot
RvLeshrac: I like how people keep buying Call of Duty games, despite them being even more boring annual garbage than the annual Madden.
RvLeshrac: Like one of them is all you need.
TheMerricat: wasn't Spyro the dragon a spin-off
felipe_modesto: Wit hout Skylanders we wouldn't have amiibos :P
RvLeshrac: If you buy like one every three years, you're missing very literally nothing.
rainbowmage42: Disney tried copying the Skylanders model for a while. It was that popular
Izandai: They liked it, but it didn't resurrect their childhood, so they were disappointed.
evercursedrpg: Crash probably had good sales, but as long as it didn't have classic CoD sales, it will always be a disappointment in Activision's eyes
Kazman20a: Sony and starwars galaxys....
GapFiller: that way lies ET
Juliamon: It's like in Patently Stupid when you miss the funding bar by $100
PharaohBender27: @Izandai Insert lrrGRAHAM 's character's tirade from the WoW Classic Crapshot
Raiz0k: @RvLeshrac : you're missing out on the lucrative "hah, hah, your parents didn't buy you a one-number-higher game" market.
Izandai: Yup
rainbowmage42: The BloodRayne series I thought did very well and then it was killed for some reason
RvLeshrac: On that note, if your company isn't happy unless every product you produce is the greatest thing ever made, you should probably quit, that's like the reddest of flags.
Orgmastron: That's just how late-stage capitalism works unfortunately RvLeshrac
PharaohBender27: @RvLeshrac Sadly, that's the attitude of a *lot* of companies, essentially. The myth of endless growth and all that.
Drasvin: You can't escalate infinitely.
MTBoot: I call that the Dragon ball Escalation
Juliamon: Story, scope, and stature
rainbowmage42: Ant Man's battles are epic compared to his size
RvLeshrac: @Orgmastron That's... wrong, given the enormous number of companies that manage to not do that, every day.
RvLeshrac: Made in Abyss is just a pleasant story of some children going hiking.
tenthtechpriest: 'bit of a bummer' is an understatement
RvLeshrac: Bring the whole family.
yomidian: made in abyss, which is already 'what if we did etrian odyssey but 120% more fucked up and eo is already more than a little fucked up'
StickInMud: babby's first cosmic horror
Izandai: Having not seen Made in Abyss, but having heard some about it... Oh the Switch, huh?
LordZarano: Gurren Laggan escalated continuously, but that was a self-contained story with a definite end
Metric_Furlong: "Beej refuses to watch anything ever"
atlr: by bummer you mean .... ? bad? depressing?
BurgerGamer: I watched a couple eps of made in abyss and boy howdy was that an uncomfortable watch
BlueChloroplast: @yomidian I wish it was more about exploring like etrian odyssey
Metric_Furlong: atlr the latter
StickInMud: "terrors" is a bit of an understatement
yomidian: i just want more etrian odyssey. you can't hold out on me forever, atlus.
Raiz0k: @RvLeshrac Also, "satisfaction from a great creation" is a very subjective thing, unlike e.g. "how much am I earning" (and, to reframe, "how much can I support my family").
niccus: oh neat it has "sages of ganja"
TheMerricat: Wonder how many grandmas are going to buy this for their kids
Dazedrago: yes
StickInMud: i just hope some of the authors, ehm, "quirks" don't bleed into it
Decaped: Made in Abyss is one of the only pieces of art i find repulsive
Metric_Furlong: Outlast was 18+, and that's what started Let's Nope :p
RvLeshrac: @RvLeshrac That's not really it. You don't have to be "satisfied with a creation" to be satisfied with making a profit, vs. making more money than exists in the world.
CururuGuasu: Adam is a fan of the series, so I can see him playing it
TheMerricat: I just can't do crapsack worlds ATM, maybe after I get vaccinated
Decaped: Everyone focuses on the horror parts, but the ideas behind it are worse the more you think about it
Gizmoloid: @rainbowmage42 I seem to remember that BloodRayne 2 wasn't received all that well by critics at launch. I have no idea how well it actually sold, but at the time it didn't surprise me that the franchise didn't really continue.
Izandai: Paul, mouseaim is not cheating, it's just an objectively superior method of... Oh you mean actual cheating. Like with hacks. Okay, carry on.
Raiz0k: @RvLeshrac Yeah, that's what I meant. It's an orthogonal criterion for how you select your job. It sucks, but that's how it is.
Gizmoloid: Just like back in the day loads of DOS games had Amiga screenshots on the box.
Silver__Light: like those puzzle game ads
rainbowmage42: One of these days I will acyually have money for the PS5.
tenthtechpriest: so there was this game called cyberpunk2077....
rainbowmage42: I remember that game
Metric_Furlong: so nearly 40 years ago
karpma: ok grandpa
evercursedrpg: There's the NES version of Double Dragon on the Switch Online app
rainbowmage42: I played Double Dragon on the SNES my neighbor hadwhen I was in Elementary school.
Raiz0k: @tenthtechpriest Hah, you were the braver one on that :D.
Orgmastron: Wow K-Mart. That's a blast from the past.
Micsig: Got to save money at the printer
LordZarano: Have these companies never seen how often people come into Twitch chat asking "What system is this on?"
RvLeshrac: I still have my Arkanoid II box with the PC-DOS sticker.
Raiz0k: Printing was expensive, yo.
Orgmastron: Corporations being honest? In 2021? What a dream
Raiz0k: Corporations being honest? in <X>? What a dream.
evercursedrpg: I can imagine the Epic v Apple lawsuit either being a dream story or a mountain of work for most journalists who have to cover it
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Latest from itchio Press Room: We are renaming our "Sensitive Content" filter to "Unspeakable Games" bc a lawyer wanted to categorize itchio as full of smut (since its on the epic game store)
felipe_modesto: I can imagine the lawsuit dragging for ages.
RandomTrivia: Just think of how many Nintendo-related stews you can make with a Giga-Leak lrrBEEJ
RandomTrivia: *Giga-Leek
