djalternative: hola chat
djalternative: I'm just watching someone make a flaming bag of gasoline. how about you?
beowuuf: irl?
djalternative: yes
beowuuf: in a safe manner?
djalternative: as safe as making a flaming cocktail usually is
beowuuf: i've just watch graham undertajke the "good" ending of fallout 4 :p
beowuuf: what's the number for 911?
djalternative: it's a riff on the shot known as the gasoline but on fire because of the whole ransomware pipeline thing
GapFiller: anyway heres Wonderwall
beowuuf: needed a wonderfirewall
GapFiller: annoyingly enough cant remember any other part of the episode apart from that
GapFiller: this wd be terrible if this were a real test
djalternative: everyone ready to go yogurting?
GapFiller: mmm Yogurt
beowuuf: sonic really does have the huge star power pull
GapFiller: there really is no way that isnt a sex ting in some capacity
PharaohBender27: !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 (2s from now).
PixelArtDragon: !next
beowuuf: Also, looking in to the dunwich horror, then twitter decides to trend wilbur at me.... wtf twitter, wtf
PharaohBender27: Dangit
beowuuf: ooh, so close pharaohbender27! also sergeHi
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf wilbur?
PixelArtDragon: Close, though! We'll get it next time
PharaohBender27: Clearly my watch is running too fast again
GapFiller: thing is PixelArtDragon wdve prob been right on the money if not for beowuuf
beowuuf: one of the characters from the dunwich horror... so either scary checking of my browsing history or weird timing on trends
djalternative: I just use the toolbar at the top of my screen to get 0s
PixelArtDragon: @PharaohBender27 That's why I do it according to my computer's clock, two seconds before to give lrrbot a chance to react
beowuuf: lol, i think you mean pharaohbender27 , gapfiller :p
beowuuf: unless my talk of wilbur affects people, of course
PharaohBender27: @PixelArtDragon I don't know how close to real time my computer is, though.
GapFiller: beowuuf ...yes I did thats really embarrassing
GapFiller: getting on the wrong side of three people in one go
djalternative: oh no. they check your browsing history, or at least facebook does. Every website that has one of those copy/paste share buttons for facebook/twitter reports back to them
beowuuf: :D look, it's an important skill and more people need to cultivate it
PixelArtDragon: @PharaohBender27 A lot of computers sync up to certain clocks because timestamps can be very important in communications
kusinohki: hi all!
PharaohBender27: @PharaohBender27 Yeah, but I know for a fact that the PCs at my work are *not* at actual time, they're like a full minute or two behind.
Raiz0k: Hello all.
kusinohki: most recent video is showing me talking sim - control. weird
GapFiller: speaking of fb exploits anyone else read this: https://www.wired.co.uk/article/apple-ios14-facebook
TheMerricat: Ok, I joined chat at an interesting moment. curiosity peeked, anyone want to summarize what we are talking about? :)
beowuuf: clearly Big Chimp has got to checkpoint for reporting to truth :( rip beej :(
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @Raiz0k !
Raiz0k: Ahoy!
RockPusher: PharaohBender27 that doesn't bode well for the administration of those computers
LordZarano: Definition of "Yogurting" from Urban Dictionary: "Eating yogurt"
djalternative: @TheMerricat getting 0s on !next
TheMerricat: ah :)
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, we're talking timestamps?
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 that is a DEVIOUS way of getting a couple extra mins outta people at the end of the day
beowuuf: @TheMerricat there were many things happening at once :)
PixelArtDragon: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
beowuuf: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller lrrSIGNAL !
RockPusher: lrrDOTS lrrSIGNAL lrrARROW
GapFiller: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL WE ARE LIVE
Raiz0k: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
djalternative: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
CAKHost: lrrSIGNAL !
beowuuf: wait... nm, i can hear wub
GapFiller: LordZarano which doesnt preclude it being a sex ting esp given its Urban Dictionary
RockPusher: Deploy the WUB!!!
TheMerricat: Did chat know there are actual laws on the book on how far off a timeclock can be when it handles wages? And that's why so many companies round their times to increments of 15 min or so? :)
PharaohBender27: @RockPusher Considering that other than contractors, my workplace has one IT person who's freaking incompetent, that actually scans.
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Thankfully at my work we just fill out our own timescreens - we don't have to physically punch in and out.
internetFionna: i am here to hear beej pronounce blaseball a whole host of new ways, and also maybe get beej to say "sibr"
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Heather, Beej and Paul and chat about gaming news! http://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun đź“· https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E18MDyBVcAIULYA.jpg || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1395848086098874369
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Makes sense
Raiz0k: @RockPusher You mean one person out of many IT people, or there's one person, and they're incompetent?
NightValien28: PharaohBender27 your IT guy doesn't let PCs synch to the main server?
PharaohBender27: WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB
GapFiller: totally never noticed that G Funk sample
GapFiller: neat
djalternative: I wonder if as part of talking about blaseball, we'll tour around the site
djalternative: maybe watch a game
paronomasiac042: aw, dammit. I forgot to do my homework for this show
PharaohBender27: @NightValien28 Honestly, I have no idea how my workplace does things in that regard.
LordZarano: @GapFiller You'd think so but UD def for yogurt: "A semi-solid sourish food prepared from milk fermented by added bacteria, often sweetened and flavoured."
internetFionna: @djalternative the post-season IS about to start
TheMerricat: @NightValien28 they might actually be synced to the domain controller and the controller is the PC that is actually off.
Raiz0k: Yeah, but other way, that's scary, lack of timesync in 2021...

Raiz0k: @Raiz0k Oh, that's definitely in the "highly incompetent IT category", means they're not syncing to any of the time servers. Finger's crossed for you not using any software that has finicky licensing checks...

Zalthia: Unskippable was that for me
beowuuf: NotTheOnion = normal news
kusinohki: how much extra work was the "field correspondant"? any chance of that coming back?
Raiz0k: I misheard what Beej was saying and thought "damn, the creator of Civilization has pivoted in a weird way".
PharaohBender27: @Zalthia You and a lot of people, including me, though Watch+Play was what really drew me into the LRR orbit
GapFiller: then dont say its a post truth world for no reason

accountmadeforants: beowuuf I haven't visited in a while, but I remember the nottheonion subreddit giving me that "simulation falling apart" feeling.
hexy_lexy: @kusinohki you know more than one hexy?!
angryoptimist: Rat erotica? I must've come in after something interesting/strange.
LordZarano: Poe's Law: "Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is utterly impossible to parody [...] in such a way that someone won't mistake for the genuine article."

GapFiller: hexy_lexy thing is then theyre on the hook to bring him in for the show
beowuuf: the first lie in the new hours of lies is that ian will always appear
hexy_lexy: @GapFiller i fail to see the problem with this
Raiz0k: For this edition, corporate greed mostly?
Boon_33: Victoria 3 just got announced an hour or few ago.
djalternative: Chillpoint is about something related to a sex act involving yogurt
GapFiller: Wonderwall explains itself
beowuuf: will rayfk appear soon to quote more linkin park lyrics?
GapFiller: and besides not everything shd be easily explicable
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
Raiz0k: @djalternative : you haven't managed to read that poster in the video too?
beowuuf: power move :p
TheMerricat: LOL
GapFiller: obscurity is no bad ting
GapFiller: and Wonderwall isnt even obscure
Laurence72: I'm surprised that it wasn't done before
BigFMonster: because REASONS
Kaorti: bungo plz
djalternative: as long as wonderwall continues to be easy to play on guitar, it will remain famous
beowuuf: that's the trouble with quote song lyrics, it starts with one thing, i don't know why, it doens't even matter how hard you try....
GapFiller: even by Segas standarts this is really scraping the barrel
Raiz0k: :D
beowuuf: i think they had to lift the barrel to find this sponsor
iris_of_ether: @beowuuf lrrWOW
SnackPak_: real bear is so cool!
cisco236: I want the bear
GapFiller: phun phact Wonderwall apparently has the same chords as Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Snowcookies: wow
NightValien28: I want the bear
GapFiller: never realised that
Raiz0k: After: CONSUME.
cisco236: cheap donkey kong
GapFiller: why the Hell is Sega settling for the Monkey when they cd have that bear!?
Ignatiuspants: original Danimals looked like serious business
pyronils80: old one looks like National Geographic cover
djalternative: This was the rebrand from the 90's
Ignatiuspants: little kid me would have been like, "eh... I don't like the bear-flavored yogurt"
CAKHost: And now monkeys
djalternative: hence the skateboard
beowuuf: its a portmanteu of daaaaaayum and animals, right?
BigFMonster: Radical my dude
MagicalAttackGecko: young me would have like the bear better
Invitare: that looks more like it's from the 90's than todau
Raiz0k: It's weird, because the new one is way more "90's" I would say. You know, totally radical etc.
angryoptimist: The Sonic/Mario observation articulated a thing I've long thought but not really been able to myself.
accountmadeforants: Hold up, we could've had a full-on realistic bear in Sonic? They ruined it!
beowuuf: @TheMerricat why? :(
TheMerricat: Marketing! :)
LordZarano: The way that monkey is looking at that yoghurt...
Raiz0k: Heh, apparently half the chat had the same assotiation.
angryoptimist: No no--SHOCK the monkey.
CAKHost: He's liberating the drum?
LidofLoathing: oh yeah, shoot the monkey and win a PS1
cisco236: they are located in Paris so
Raiz0k: @accountmadeforants "Sonic the Hedgehog, Rogue the Bat, and now: The Bear™®"
pyronils80: in Germany its Danone too
djalternative: Dannon is also just the name of the man who invented the company
TheMerricat: Dan-on, the villian in the french translation of Link's Awakening?
LordZarano: And in the UK
Raiz0k: Is... Texas.... known for yogurting?
GapFiller: theres a fine line of exoticism to be walked here
Mai_Andra: "This yogurt says it's from New York City!" "New York City?!"
PharaohBender27: I *remember* that ad
GapFiller: see also UK stuff
angryoptimist: I'm not sure if I want Texas yogurt--like landlocked seafood.
SnackPak_: woof
beowuuf: lrrWOW
GamesAndInk: I remember it
GapFiller: and the Far East quite frankly
PharaohBender27: No, I remember it from the 1990s
Laurence72: I remember those commerials
billydreamshake: wouldn't it be for hogtying?
Kaorti: maybe tar & feathering
TheMerricat: For Heather - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgrGyR6EYbY (in defense of Beej) :D
kusinohki: I remember those commercials, but I'm before "beej time"
EvilBadman: I 'member PACE commercials and am 37 sooo :P
Raiz0k: Yeah, Haagen-Dazs was actually founded by Polish immigrants IIRC, which you might note usually don't have such surnames ;).
Leditzig: hello from Denmark
Tiber727: "This salsa was made in New York City!" "New York City!?" "Get the rope!" I always took it as dragging from a horse, not a lynching.
Drasvin: Legal name versus Doing Business As name
LarkSachrosis: Monkey vargDong
LordZarano: A Stark reminder
GapFiller: yeh the Fork Knife gag was strong
TheMerricat: TBF Paul Sonic Dash is a game that was published in 2013, so it's gotten long enough in the tooth that maybe no one cares about it's dignity any mroe.
mercano82: Not that a land-base keel hauling is that much better...
Ignatiuspants: at this point, there's no news story about Fortnite that would surprise me
TheTunnelingCat: the fortnite extended universe
Pinwiz11: Blaseball WAFC Woooo
BlackIsis: Skyr is Icelandic. :P
josh___something: Blaseball!
internetFionna: it's pronounced blaseball
GapFiller: Beej pronounce Blaseball for us
djalternative: WAFC
josh___something: We are all love Blaseball
beowuuf: fortnite ow has a blaseball mod
internetFionna: oh hi josh lol
beowuuf: not really
Raiz0k: Beej's pronouncation of NOK 'though lrrHEART ...
TheMerricat: I loved the back and forth about the pronunciation in the Yahoo comments. :)
josh___something: hi!
niccus: it's pronounced blaseball
internetFionna: (it's fionna from the garages)
beowuuf: sergeHi
GapFiller: the perils of multimedia asynchronous communications
LaskoReadsComics: All of you smiling and laughing and enjoying yourselves is making my day better
Leditzig: when is beej gonna get a hair cut
GapFiller: see this is the root of my animus w/ people getting hot abt their names being mispronounced
PharaohBender27: @Leditzig When he dang well pleases, that's when
internetFionna: thank you so much beej
Ignatiuspants: it's better than when people say, "it's not pronounced 'gif'"
Laurence72: it is pronounced "Blaseball"
RockPusher: Claws Up!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Blissez-Ball
mercano82: I hit vaccination + 2 weeks tomorrow. First priority is loosing six months of excess hair.
josh___something: Talk spit, Get hits. etc etc :P
TheMerricat: I feel like Beej's wonderful new hair may be a permanent addition to LRR thanks to COVID, and if so, I'll be blissfully happy. :)
beowuuf: it's pronounced yacht
kusinohki: I would love that filter feature
internetFionna: so i will say: i appreciate that the first thing the Game Band did with that money was pay their community managers
NotCainNorAbel: time to spam the comments
internetFionna: "$3 mil? okay we'll pay our mods"
ArcOfTheConclave: Be the comments you want to see in the chat.
Pinwiz11: I'm happy for the Game Band, and it was a surprise that the Patreon ended
Leditzig: it is kroner so you said it prety well
iamb_error: Do they have, for instance, a monetization model?
internetFionna: @iamb_error nope
josh___something: participating in the cultural event of blaseball
mercano82: There’s no playing in Blaseball!
Pinwiz11: There's some interaction
josh___something: Its more idle gaming
Raiz0k: Well, obviously, the part's that free.
djalternative: it's sports betting
BrookJustBones: blaseball is the new roblox?
drzootsuit: It's a fortnite metaverse Kappa
Laurence72: agreed, not a standard game at all. But still very fun
kusinohki: isn't there a "betting" feature on which teams will win?
beowuuf: @mercano82 there's no blasing in cryball
InquisitorGaia: Its a DND Chat room
josh___something: ^^^ basically
Wolfstrike_NL: Can Apple bring it up in court, to point out what is and is not a game?
LordZarano: The main thing is betting on the games, yeah
Drasvin: Betting and voting is the main interaction loop
Pinwiz11: Collaborative Idle Game Storytelling Event
misskale: I feel it's a superstition generator
NojhLivic: They've added game play. There's an entire gambling game that generates the the in-game money you need to participate in the community voting, which changes how the simulation plays, which modifies how you want to gamble.
Raiz0k: @BrookJustBones Nice reference to the later part of the Checkpoint there!
NojhLivic: It's an idle game at its heart.
Juliamon: Canada, not Canadian
mercano82: Blaseball is basically watching a Twitch stream, just without a streamer.
josh___something: Moderation is a blessing
internetFionna: cori's apparently the source of a lot of MT memes
josh___something: Deep fried MINION memes
Snowcookies: lmao
Snowcookies: The Talkers are weird
TemporallyAwry: There also is a huge overarching narrative/story that the game-band is telling - independent of the random chaos.
josh___something: The talkers are weird, we were clowns at one point
Pinwiz11: What is a sport?
internetFionna: :clown_pensive:
tctrain: A lot of blaseball teams would be categorized as weird
josh___something: Most of solid blaseball "playing" is the voting system, yeah
dylan16807: idle gaming/betting -> coins -> voting on rules/blessings/renovations/etc
internetFionna: the garages are perfectly normal, i'll have you know (as a rep)
Pinwiz11: And you can submit a request as part of the elections and should your item be chosen the wimdy happens
internetFionna: and yeah they're paying their mods <3
internetFionna: big ups to the keepers and sluggers
GapFiller: its interesting that Beej didnt do either of the Nintendo stories this week
TheMerricat: Just a reminder to chat, Amiboos use NFC technology and if you really want this ability in your game, you can buy off the shelf NFC tags and encode them with the specific code of the Amiboo in question to be able to 'trick' the game into thinking you purchased it.
Ritaspirithntr: Apparently Best Buy didn’t start any Pre-orders for it, but have it on their website.
misskale: it's the dungeon part that annoys me
InquisitorGaia: Ya what it is is hearthing

DaSunao: So its more like an in-dungeon store than a fast travel?

chaostreader: @raiz0k Yes. That’s normal price for a game.
dylan16807: even 75 cad is more than 60 usd, 80 is just rude
Raiz0k: @Solid_Fuel : only 560 NOK apparently now :).
Solid_Fuel: wooow! i have to get that then
EvilBadman: @Decaped Eh, sony's still fighting uphill to 70. I think nintendo's gonna stick at 60 for a bit.
misskale: ai
PinoGraham: wolf link amiibo
DentedPockets: My issue is it's a limited release DLC. It's weird.
NojhLivic: They were AI fighters
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: ai and save files
Raiz0k: @chaostreader Yeah, that sounds about right, since they're price the same all over the world regardless of the purchasing power.
EvilBadman: The wolf Link amiibo tie-in to BOTW was cool.
PMAvers: The purpose of amiibos is that so that I can have a Pearl & Marina figure on my computer desk.
GapFiller: hurr eurgh did games testing on Skylanders
GapFiller: I remember those figures
PixelArtDragon: Hang on, NFC doesn't allow writing
DaSunao: My ship had someone training their WiiFit Trainer amiibo to be a menace
LordZarano: Yeah you can buy and write blank NFC cards to be Amiibo, although that's technically pirating since you're writing Nintendo's NFC data without their permission
EvilBadman: @PixelArtDragon Amiibo had some sort of write feature
Tiber727: Usually a game wants a specific amiibo for a specific thing, and then generic amiibo do minor things.
angryoptimist: I wonder each time how much of any given outrage over Amiibos is fuelled by old grievances.
kumatsu: Aren't there Breath of the Wild speedruns that care about having/not having amiibos?
EvilBadman: Most amiibo in BOTW ddropped stuff on the ground, EXCEPT wolf link, which would have wolf link hang out with you, based on your Twilight Princess HD progress
PixelArtDragon: I wonder how quickly people are going to figure out how to spoof and duplicate them
ArcOfTheConclave: wolf link friend
PMAvers: I still kind of regret not getting the BOTW Guardian amiibo, that thing looked sweet.
BusTed: Into the Disney Vault
Laserbeaks_Fury: Midna?
EvilBadman: @kumatsu Yes. Bananas for food from random drops
DaSunao: @PixelArtDragon I could buy a full set of fake amiibo cards off amazon right now
GhostValv: gamestop
PixelArtDragon: Would using Amiibos in a speedrun count as "tool assisted"?
Raiz0k: Oof.
LordZarano: @PixelArtDragon Already done, you can find guides online or buy pirate amiibo cards off ebay
PMAvers: Like, there's those pictures of store shelves where there are full shelves of one specific amiibo no one wants.
EvilBadman: @PixelArtDragon No, just a separate category. Tool assisted is generally frame-by-frame replay etc.
LurkerSpine: This is why I use NFC tags
GapFiller: yeh that sounds miserable
LidofLoathing: yeah, that
PMAvers: It sometimes depends on the figure, like the bigger or more complex ones cost more.
LidofLoathing: that's why I never got into them. I play just on the 3DS and I'm not carrying them around
Raiz0k: Wait, so you couldn't "store"/"register" the "ownership state" on the console? Ugh.
toenolla: @LordZarano What I'm hearing is I should get an NFC implant in my hand, and make it a Master Hand Amiibo
NojhLivic: Most of the time I assumed the amiibo is already sold out by the time I hear about it.
Ritaspirithntr: I want this Loftwing Amiibo for collector purposes. I like flying around in Skyward Sword.
iris_of_ether: The only amiibo I sought out was because I wanted the figurine :)
TheMerricat: @PixelArtDragon you missed it but I posted a link earlier from 4 years ago that explained exactly how to make your own Amiboo fakes using NFC stickers.
ZethRuss subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 82 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, letfireraindown! (Today's storm count: 15)
PixelArtDragon: Interestingly, this might be one of the few situations where something akin to an NFT (but not environmentally shitty) would be useful instead of the BS it's currently touted as
Raiz0k: Also, it's weird that the thing @TheMerricat mentioned works, normally with high-rarity items those codes would be item-unique. I wonder what was the sales strategy conceptualized for that to "work" (since, except for the aforementioned Skylanders, it apparently hadn't).
Jean_Jacques_EB: the diablo treasure goblin amiibo opens a portal to the greed vault once every 22h
kusinohki: chibi robo amibo?
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I would bet heavily on the idea that the people who came up with the idea of an Amiibo and the people who were responsible for creating the 'tech' of it were 100% different and the tech folk just wanted to pull something off the shelf.
Raiz0k: Yeah, classic "left hand/right hand" @TheMerricat .
Tiber727: Except fundamentally people don't care. They want the game content but don't care about the figure. All they see is that you gated content behind DLC that's annoying to buy.
TheMerricat: I mean to be fair, what @LordZarano said is also true, making your own Amiibo tags is technically piracy since you are writing proprietary "data" to the tag.
Raiz0k: Does Nintendo outright own plastic (mold injection etc.) manufacture facilities? Because than it would make sens.
Raiz0k: *then
angryoptimist: It kinda sounds like Nintendo has actually made an anger engine.
kusinohki: I'm reminded of my mother's hummel figure collection for some reason
toenolla: This is why the games that are designed specifically for this functionality are better; consistent experience
angryoptimist: *accidentally
methodia_chicken: is the delight factor mouthfeel?
JarofGoats: I remember a lot of initial hype for smash bros doing amiibo only tournaments like a pseudo-pokemon fight
Raiz0k: @angryoptimist "Nintendo: An Early Terran Knornite Cult?"
angryoptimist: @raiz0k Heh.
Raiz0k: :)
pyronils80: I have a hole bunch of Amiibos, just for the figures, did not play a Nintendo the last 25 years! But I really like the figures!
angryoptimist: That makes sense to me.
Tiber727: The people who want figurines and the people who want DLC are two audiences, and all they've done is burdened the latter audience.
BrindleBoar: that sounds like DRM with extra steps
Decaped: Amiibo sideboarding, lawl.
Decaped: at least you don't need to shuffle your amiibos.
TheMerricat: It's ti-i-i-i-i-i-ime to DUEL!
pyronils80: Sometimes I use some of them in D&D games!
PMAvers: Actually, you know what? I sort of wish there was a dedicated amiibo boop-dock with the reader point on it, for those of us who are using controllers that don't have the reader on thtem.
angryoptimist: Would people not be mad if Nintendo also sold just the NFC tags without supply issues?
PMAvers: Sort of like the one for the old 3DS.
saiarcot895: speedrunning?
TheMerricat: @PMAvers should be doable even, I mean the NFC tag writer/readers that I've been seeing for 'Amiibo creation' are USB peripherals so it wouldn't be that hard to create a dock for oen.
HorusFive: You don't need it to play- but neither do you need it to release the game.
TheMerricat: @angryoptimist depends on the price and how cynical they are about it.
angryoptimist: I mean, games *themselves* are nice-to-haves.
Raiz0k: @angryoptimist I'd wager people would be angrier then, since it's apparent just from Heather & Beej talking about the physicality of the thing being a desired feature.
GapFiller: ultimately Amiibos are just feelies
GapFiller: at least thats my takeaway
Raiz0k: "feelies".... I was there, 3000 years ago.
GapFiller: and the lesson here apparently is that turning Amiibos from feelies into core mechanics is a great way to make a lotta people real mad
302_Dave: I think "Amiibo DLC" feels different when the figure itself feels like part of it, like how smash bros does.
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Accurate summation there.
TheMerricat: If they sold the acutal Amiibo for $25 but 'replacement tags' for your Amiibo for say ~$5 I could see people being OK with that. The 'doll collectors' get their item, the game only folk get their tag.
DentedPockets: Are Amiibos at the horse armor stage of additional function?
Raiz0k: Yeah, but it would be more likely 25 USD vs 15 USD for "replacement".
PMAvers: something something WiiPlay shirts something
LurkerSpine: Eh, I think Nintendo does a good job for initial runs, it does a bad job of doing seondary runs.
GapFiller: PMAvers nalvLUL
302_Dave: Even things where you unlock a character or something, but the character matches the figure, it makes a abstract squishy-wishy sense that an game mechanic doesn't
TheMerricat: I'm still a bit surprised that the Wiiplay shirts didn't sell, though I wasn't around when they happened. :)
RockPusher: PMAvers WiiPlay stuffing for plushies you mean :D
EvilBadman: Fallout New Vegas was terrible about that
Raiz0k: "The Yacht Armor"
NightValien28: nintendo managed to capitalize horse armor
Raiz0k: What, like GRA and all that @EvilBadman ?
EvilBadman: GRA?
Raiz0k: Gun Runner's Arsenal
RockPusher: The WiiPlay shirts were a print-on-demand kind of product before print-on-demand was really a thing
TheMerricat: Beej, controversial opinions? NEVER :p
EvilBadman: @Raiz0k There was a couple of them for Best Buy, etc, yeah
Raiz0k: Huh.
302_Dave: I mean, the amiibo is super cute...
PixelArtDragon: It feels like gating a core feature, not giving a bonus feature
accountmadeforants: The Amiibo is also just a cute little statuette, yeah
methodia_chicken: what if you sculpted your own
GapFiller: PixelArtDragon this
LordZarano: @TheMerricat It was a colonoscopy shirt, would you really wear a colonoscopy shirt in public?
Athelgar: whats going to prevent them from walling off other game mechanics in the future
accountmadeforants: Passive NFC chips cost literal cents.
JarofGoats: Honestly did like having cheap merchandise of characters who don't necessarily get a lot
TheMerricat: @LordZarano tbh I'd never wear it, but I would have probably bought it :D
Athelgar: want more than a single save file? Cough up more money
DentedPockets: Just turn the shirt into a throw pillow
GapFiller: LordZarano I sure wd and in fact do so often that my shirt has become kinda worn over the yrs
EvilBadman: @Raiz0k The Courier's Stash DLC was all the separate retailer bonuses
302_Dave: Like honestly, ignoring any gameplay functionality, $12 for a decent little Nintendo figure ain't bad. I know the loftwing one is more, but still...
Ignatiuspants: I am less interested in buying a game when (a) I bought it before and I didn't like it then and (b) the fast-travel system is gated behind a collectible that not everyone can get
InquisitorGaia: @LoadingReadyRun so for Monster hunter rise they did a weird thing with amibos, they sold amibo cards that had the functionality of amibos "dlc" but without the statue
LurkerSpine: Man, I'm getting Monster Rancher flashbacks, where certain CDs/DVDs get you different monsters
PharaohBender27: @Athelgar Didn't Metal Gear Survive literally do that?
GapFiller: I'm the one guy who laments not being able to buy more Wiiplay shirts
LordZarano: Games used to have cheat codes built-in to unlock these kind of features
Der_Hubi: I hope it does not affect speedruns, as it would suck to have a speedrun where you need to buy an amibo for (see BotW early on)
nerdmor: TBF, amiibos are SUPER pirated
RockPusher: as if we would deny Beej medicines
Ignatiuspants: Why would they even make a Skyward Sword remake without a crapload of quality-of-life adjustments?
Raiz0k: @EvilBadman Oh, was it? I mean, it was essentially a set of free gear, so that sadly makes sense. Fortunately, AFAIR it's included in the "complete editions" now.
Athelgar: i think so @PharaohBender27
PixelArtDragon: Quick! While he's gone, say really nice things about him!
DeM0nFiRe: I haven't played Skyward Sword but from what I heard the big annoyance with it was that it did the item pickup dialog all the time. Wonder if they would have fixed that
Juliamon: Oh god getting the ACNL amiibo cards, what a pain
pyronils80: Sounds somewhat like Magic??!!??
RockPusher: Beej gets all the medicines! We need Beej in tip top condition for maximum Beejitude
PinoGraham: hey kid Icarus also had cards
Raiz0k: @pyronils80 With Magic the rarity is distributed more sensibly.
LarkSachrosis: With Magic there's a sizeable secondary market.
EvilBadman: I think we have about 30. Mostly Zelda.
Juliamon: I wanted that squishy Metroid!
pyronils80: ther
DentedPockets: Wasn't there a knit kirby or yoshi one?
pyronils80: there are 183 Amiibos and 20 variations
Ritaspirithntr: I don’t like the idea of playing Skyward Sword with button controls, because almost every single enemy requires you to swing the sword in a very specific direction.
EvilBadman: Sorry 4.
302_Dave: I defend blind packs for TCGs because the randomness has a gameplay function. But blind collectibles generally are kinda gross
EvilBadman: I forgot BIG knit Yoshi
Seagulyus: DentedPockets knit yoshi, there was 4 (small blue/green/pink and large green)
TheTruePhantomAngel: The Detective Pikachu is huge, so that has happened before.
accountmadeforants: I'm pretty sure the squishy Metroid Amiibo never actually existed in my country. They were up for pre-order for a bit, and then the listings just disappeared and I got refunded. D:
Raiz0k: And then there's me, being reminded by Heather's "squishy" remark that I desperately want an Urbie plushie.
PMAvers: *looks over at his shelf with the squishy metroid amiibo*
kusinohki: rage-buying?
302_Dave: I'd be interested to see a poll of what percentage of people who buy amiibos are factoring the gameplay function into the decision
TheTunnelingCat: I want a groose amiibo
Ignatiuspants: whenever I learn about an Amiibo's functionality, it's like, "here's a feature that was coded into the game and which you can never ever access"
DentedPockets: Is there a skull kid mask amibo?
fin9n: how many zelda amiibos
DentedPockets: Oh no, there is
GamesAndInk: I wonder if people would be mad about this if the Amiibo was Tingle
Seagulyus: there is two toon links, OOT link, wolf and Twilight Princess Link...
Ritaspirithntr: @loadingreadyrun (this is not a brag, but a point) i own every single Legend of Zelda amiibo that is released. They are collecting dust, but not once do i regret it. I love the series.
PMAvers: There's four Zeldas. There's a Wind Waker Zelda.
TheTruePhantomAngel: There are those, the champions ones.
TheTunnelingCat: well theres the champion ones from BOTW
Seagulyus: @Paul there is there is the four champions from BOTW they just re-released
302_Dave: The champion ones were gorgeous
Koios7: make a Majora's Mask band set
DeM0nFiRe: The only amiibos I have are ones that were bundled with game or console, but I would instabuy Majora's Mask link transformation amiibo set
djalternative: I just want a goose game amiibo that turns the y button in any game into honk
djalternative: !y

PharaohBender27: @djalternative Dos!
saiarcot895: 2
accountmadeforants: So according to https://amiibo.life/series#series/the-legend-of-zelda Link has 9 Amiibos, out of 19 Legend of Zelda Amiibos.
Raiz0k: !tres

PMAvers: But what if they... had F1 cars running over zombies?
302_Dave: So like, I know the idea is to make F1 fans, but like... how does one even get into *doing* F1?
FITorion: Overtaking in F1 seldom ever happens...
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
djalternative: I love that TXC continues to add counting commands in different languages to lrrbot
TheMerricat: They need to sponsor Ian doing another Lrrmans type stream then they''ll pull in the numbers.:D
Athelgar: im sure that there can be some kind of demo derby counterpart to F1 like the XFL is to the NFL
breadisbest1: has anyone seen the f1 car vs deer video?

MrSVCD: Formula E is more interesting than F1 to me
Seagulyus: oh right there is NINE link amiibos. Link's Awakening / smash / Majora's Mask / Skyward Sword (2017) / TP / Archer / Rider (both BTOW) / OOT / 8 bit
Decaped: f1's lack of overtaking is mostly about the track than the cars, at least in terms of what the cars are currently allowed to do.
Juliamon: epple
BrindleBoar: ApplEpic
GapFiller: just a small update this week
kusinohki: epic-apple-pineapple-pen
Seagulyus: oh 11 there is two Toon Links
josh___something: Roblox: not a game apparently
PharaohBender27: Yeah, that was wild
RockPusher: Nope, not a game, no games here. Nothing game-like at all, nosiree
angryoptimist: I suddenly remember that Zombies Versus Ambulances reference. So deep a cut, I felt like I was having an out of body experience.
Seagulyus: plus young link and wolf link - 13 geez
TheMerricat: I'm glad I can tell my mother that her child in their 40's isn't spending their 'time off of work' playing games since obviously Minecraft isn't a game.
accountmadeforants: @302_Dave Either your parents are absurdly rich or you have been driving *something* since you were in your diapers and are just genuinely freakishly good.
Ritaspirithntr: Boop
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat As a fallback, I'm sure that eventually Minecraft'll become an e-sport, which falls under "exercise".
mitomanox: NotLikeThis
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k LOL
Juliamon: I'm excited I no longer have to call myself a 'gamer' because I play Minecraft
Raiz0k: :)
accountmadeforants: Is a playground a game?
Raiz0k: So bizzare/so bizzare/Ooooh baby
PixelArtDragon: Kinda? I've heard it referred to being akin to Unity in casual, non-professional conversation.
GapFiller: something something Wittgenstein
DeM0nFiRe: It's definitely a game lol. Also "roblox is like minecraft" is a poor argument that it's not a game haha
GapFiller: everyone for backgammon and deckcahirs
angryoptimist: Categorization arguments are exhausting, usually pointless, sometimes hilarious.
josh___something: poorly worded example, then
Ritaspirithntr: Minecraft is a game! It has credits!
PixelArtDragon: @angryoptimist "Behold, a game!"
302_Dave: I thought they were saying minecraft *was* a game because it was simpler?
CapitalisToast: @DeM0nFiRe to play devil's advocate, that could be like saying youtube is a video
accountmadeforants: The End also wasn't in Minecraft for a good long while.
Raiz0k: I think they're trying to argue that they're game *generators*.
angryoptimist: @pixelartdragon That was amazing. Sometimes historical anecdotes are great. And yep.
tuckamanian: microsoft made them put the end
djalternative: Yeah. It baffles me how little of the player base has actually visits the end
josh___something: Didn't they add a "end" to shut people up?
TheMerricat: The End really isn't the end for Minecraft anyway :)
RockPusher: 'The End' is at best, mid-game content
beowuuf: credits can roll :)

saiarcot895: is animal crossing a game?
Athelgar: that was a whole different game
PixelArtDragon: Yo dawg?
bootsmalone: @Raiz0k Yes this is their argument. That minecraft and roblox both have addons that are not games themselves
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Yeah, it hasn't been for what like, 4 years now?
GapFiller: as in if it does this one ting thats like a game and this other ting and that other other ting then its prob a game
LordZarano: Is Mario Maker a game? Is Gary's Mod? Is LEGO Studio?
beokirby: Minecraft story mode was something else
Meyari: Yeah, "Story Mode" is a separate game
Orgmastron: Hot take: Binary categories are worthless NonBinaryPride
codl_: is game a sandwich?
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k Type constructors for 'game' essentially. Good luck explaining that to the judge ;).
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k even when the end was added, it wasn't an end, it was more of a "ok, here's a new place you can go to but once you are done doing whatever is there, come on back to the main world and keep playing"
TheMerricat: Chat, is Roblox a Hotdog?
angryoptimist: The GNU Compiler Collection can be a game if you've got the right attitude. Kappa
accountmadeforants: All digital games are apps/programs, if they want to save people the headache, just treat them as apps and only apply "Game" as a category devs can choose.
mitomanox: @codl_ my fave question of the night
GapFiller: TheMerricat what happens when we map Roblox onto a Qube? Kappa
saiarcot895: @angryoptimist yup, you don't know whether you'll make it to the end successfully or you missed a semicolon somewhere
Too_Many_Knives: @angryoptimist I think you can make Conway's with the preprocessor, so yes indeed it is.
LeoHeartship: Why does Beej have their hair like a young Keanu Reeves? It's great
accountmadeforants: Oh hell yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing people fight about Walking Simulators in the court of law.
BrookJustBones: Does apple take a different percentage of sales depending on the label in the app store?
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, absolutely @TheMerricat . And any other way would be a giant shot in the foot.
Ignatiuspants: my definition is that a game can be either (1) a competition that you can win under a specific set of rules, or (2) a form of art that you experience by interacting with it according to its rules
jessieimproved: literally anything you have fun doing on a screen is probably a video game
302_Dave: Apple can argue the games they don't like are video games. Kappa
GapFiller: Orgmastron useless and harmful binaries! not just for misidentifying people! just say no!
xantos69: I mean arguing "what is a game" in a legal sense is just as fruitless as when they tried to define "art".
Raiz0k: In general, the one good thing out of this whole sh**storm is that games are being classified more and more as a legitimate medium of expression.
PixelArtDragon: Legally distinct Interactive Experiences TM
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun And actually the entire point of Epic for bringing this up is that Apple is being arbitrary and thus inconsistent in their application of a monopoly and as such should be subject to anit-trust
GapFiller: Ignatiuspants Wittgenstein wd no doubt approve
kusinohki: might have different regulation rules apply *shrug*
beowuuf: "visual playing experiences"
chaosjoey: Dreams, and little big planet are my favorite game building games
angryoptimist: This is all so much Jaffa Cakes (sp?).
PixelArtDragon: @beowuuf Are you implying text-based games aren't real games?! :p
Traion: I mean there is a spectrum there and you can't really decide a good cut-off point
CapitalisToast: mario maker does have a main story mode so
DaSunao: Is mayonnaise an instrument?
mitomanox: a game is a game is a game is a game
LordZarano: Also the dragon in The End was something of a joke. They said there'd never be dragons in Minecraft but people kept asking. So "Here, we put a dragon in and that's The End of Minecraft. Now stop asking"
dylan16807: a woman pushes a shopping cart full of wonder bread...

beowuuf: @beowuuf on the advice of council i refuse to call hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy a game, it was definitely an experience :p
Gaming_Unplugged: I'm sure Wittgenstein has an entire paper relevant to this.
TheMerricat: @beowuuf Not only text-based games but what about those audio only games you can play on your Amazon(tm) devices
GapFiller: the problem ofc is that there will always be people w/ a vested interest (and sometimes not even that) in insisting that just because something looks like a duck and moves like a duck and sounds like a duck doesnt mean its a duck
mitomanox: is beej's hair a game?
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat And the best thing from Epic's point of view is that's absolutely true re Apple's "arbitrality". But not only from Epic's, since the one good thing of that whole lawsuit is that the app store (Apple & Google) arbitrary policies are being laid (?) bare in court.
beowuuf: @beowuuf those are "audio games" :D
djalternative: but is the digital version of the NYT crossword a videogame?

TheMerricat: YOu can not be held responsible for a contract you are not party to.
Kazman20a: yes, interfering in a business relationship
Raiz0k: You absolutely can, otherwise NDA would be toothless, since it would be very ease to circumvent them that way.
LordZarano: We are not lawyers
Raiz0k: There are also usually mechanisms in criminal (and, in some cases, civil) law that allow you to reveal NDA'd details, but that's a necessary exception.
mitomanox: WutFace
accountmadeforants: Although some companies (like WotC, not too long ago), do try to pressure the leaker into revealing their sources, which can get nasty
angryoptimist: Epic probably isn't making friends with this, regardless. Apple, in contrast, is only antagonizing as they always have.
xantos69: If a judge tell you to reveal a specific document. Weather or not it belongs to another company, you are obligated to do so. If that happens in the course of legal discovery at the express discretion of a judge then you are in the clear.
Gnyrinn: There was that news story that broke a few hours ago: Paradox announce a new game, ruin fan in-joke.
Nigouki: We're Apple, we forget prototype phones in bars!
Raiz0k: @xantos69 : yes, but that request is rarely completely unqualified, both in terms of the scope of the release and the redaction of the document.

PixelArtDragon: @RockPusher Stargate is apparently getting another show
xantos69: @Raiz0k absolutely. The judge would typically have to believe that such a document would be expressly related to the ongoing case. (This is rare because you often don't know what a document contains without seeing it)

GapFiller: nalvLUL nalvLUL nalvLUL so true Beej

EvilBadman: He's also very anti-human
TheMerricat: GAH! 3 decards ;P
TheMerricat: decades :)
Raiz0k: @LoadingReadyRun Also, there's crossover between No Man's Sky and Mass Effect, you can get Normandy SR-1 as a frigate for your NMS freighter fleet apparently.
NapalmSideburns: What's the Taurian Concardat and their stompy mechs got to do with this?
accountmadeforants: I was hoping for lore explaining him
Koios7: So they went and changed that? I bet they still didnt fix the Conrad Verner bug
Kazman20a: old startreck klingons
xantos69: @Kazman20a We do not speak of it.
EvilBadman: @Koios7 It's retconned in ME3
beowuuf: *wolf looking across at a table of TOS klingons*
beowuuf: *worf
Raiz0k: @NapalmSideburns When the Steiner Scout Lance shows up, all they'll be doing is a combination of "being up in flames" and "stomped flat".
EvilBadman: It's super weird because the character is very against Humans, so having him be one was unusual
Koios7: @EvilBadman I don't consider an in game apology for getting it wrong a proper fix, lol
Armyguy0: Steiner Scout Lance best Scout Lance
Ignatiuspants: I mean, I'm a human and I'm somewhat against humans
Raiz0k: The most geheim Scout Lance in any case.
xantos69: Yea, honestly him being human is a more interesting story element.
NapalmSideburns: Steiner Scout lances do suffer minimal losses
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah personally I prefer it when stories have interesting aspects that aren't fully explained, it makes the whole story feel less contrived
PinoGraham: didn't he also share a name with a weapons manufacturerer that is made by the turians
TheMerricat: BTW chat to make up for a lack of Lady Dimitrescu news in Checkpoint - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tANCi9CakEk - have a video of her voice actor doing her impression of a bunch of famous RE lines, including "Jill Sandwich"
PixelArtDragon: Beej, that's one hell of a mood.
Twilight_Spark: All about how...
Raiz0k: @NapalmSideburns Usually it's replacement leg myomers from all the "stealth ensuring".
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat Have you seen the mod that makes her hat bigger whenever she notices you?
xantos69: @LoadingReadyRun Paul have you thought about doing a Mass Effect trilogy Play it Forward? (Once Beej is done of course)
TheMerricat: LOL @EvilBadman I saw news about her getting a big hat but not that it got bigger every time she saw you.... :D
djalternative: @xantos69 next PiF is Adam on Returnal
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Wait 'till you see that screenshots.
Earthenone: who do they pay for likeness?
Raiz0k: Oh, that FIFA thing is very cool.
GhostValv: huh... that's almost decent

PMAvers: While they're doing sub reads, Beej just starts laying Krondor while it's going on.
SirMorek: betrayal at everywhere BUT krondor
Juliamon: He IS running out of non-Krondor things to do though
accountmadeforants: Krondor Betrayed
TheMerricat: We are ALMOST ready to go to Krondor. Soon! 🔜
BusTed: Beneath the Planet of the Krondor
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Going pretty dry on the options, aren't we? But if I'd be betting, something like dorfs or ZZT?
Earthenone: is it a full game or a deemo?
beowuuf: betrayal at house on the hill that sorta gets a decent view of krondor if there's no mist
