lirazel64: Wheeee!
beowuuf: @TheMerricat aaaaaaaaaaaaah
CAKHost: Or maybe something something, magic related
beowuuf: @kusinohki even more nightmarish
TheMerricat: It literally translates to: "Spirits, demons, ghosts, monsters, quickly leave
Juliamon: While unintentional, I don't know that comparing a foreign language to an eldritch chant is a great move
kusinohki: @TheMerricat I never knew that. it's kind of awesome
beowuuf: sorry
TheMerricat: To be fair with zero context a lot of non latin (and some latin) based languages transliterated into English look like Eldritch chants purely because that's how most authors created their Eldritch chants in fiction.....

PharaohBender27: @kusinohki He sure did, where he *threw an alligator*
Foxmar320: I had no idea hammer had a cartoon
FITorion: Ice tea, Ice cube, Rubix Cube
TheMerricat: All I remember about the cube cartoon was the intro.
Lithobraker: But... what would be the central conflict of a rubik cube cartoon?
KV1NN4: @Lithobraker aliens and mobsters
Mollylele: they made a movie about Battleship
TheMerricat: @Lithobraker the cube came alive and some sort of offensive gypsy sterotype witch chased after him
BusTed: 🏎️
taareek1976: I remember the dukes of hazard, q-bert, rubix cube and dragon's lair cartoons.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: There is no reason for the majority of things that happen and get made

CAKHost: Various time periods popular culture(?)
kusinohki: I'd tune in to a LRR talks about 80-90 cartoons
GapFiller: turns out the old LRR series ChillPoint was REALLY replacing wasnt CheckPoint at all but was infact the LRRcast
BusTed: wut
Earthenone: define "real"
Mollylele: that sounds like hell
BusTed: They could do it as a Warner Bros cartoon.
Arclight_Dynamo: Best cartoon concept from my childhood: Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.
aitsu100: that sounds like an acid trip
TheMerricat: 100% agree Heather
misteline: OG Teen Titans cartoon was the best.
Simonark: I mean... the Titans live action show is pretty bad
niccus: wasn't there Angela Anaconda talking over the Digimon movie
CravenMonki: peter Faulk
SK__Ren: Wasn't that Peter Faulk
LurkerSpine: PG-13 rated
misteline: The Slinkers TT comics were also excellent.
kusinohki: grown man fred savage still kinda looks like a child iir
BusTed: Also from Airwolf.
TheMerricat: @Simonark the live action series has the benefit of NOT causing the cancelation of the OG series though, so it can never get as bad as GO is.
Dromos_GHG: Yes it’s real. Teen Titans go see Space Jam
TraceBullet: Rock N Roll Martian
TehAmelie: that does sound like a show LRR would make a sketch about
Simonark: @TheMerricat Valid, but the live action Titans is so bad it convinced some people to not watch Doom Patrol, also a terrible crime
kusinohki: the "Seinfield isn't funny" trope
misskale: doom patrol is great
Lithobraker: It's the Citizen Kane effect, it's hard to understand what made that movie so influential with our current understanding.

Kazman20a: because they are making fun of Scotts
couldntpickausername: Benny Hill did the same a lot too
Invitare: it's a theatrical tradition, not comedy specifically
GapFiller: its a major British cultural ting which doesnt travel
CravenMonki: Their I'm a lumber jack song fits that
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller There's definitely some moments from CH Season 1 that have aged *poorly*
Getter404: Dave Foley was probably the best at it
DaSunao: @GapFiller There's one I can think of immediately that's posted with an apology attached
Orgmastron: And now the UK is TERF Island
Arclight_Dynamo: Kids in the Hall very famously had an openly-gay member. So.
Invitare: drag happens a lot in British Panto
PharaohBender27: @Orgmastron Yeah :\
Simonark: @Arclight_Dynamo So did Python
GapFiller: camp is a whole ting too ofc
Mordin_Solus_Sings: There's also a difference between stuff like drag, cross-dressing, gender identity, and bloke-in-a-dress. It's a tricky needle to thread though.
LurkerSpine: kids in the hall was more often than not just those male characters playing a female character than doing a "drag joke"
Arclight_Dynamo: @Simonark Really? Huh. Well then.
Traion: One day we'll talk about what was discussed in the Chillpoint Teaser Trailer yesterday
Simonark: @Arclight_Dynamo Graham Chapman
Akaiatana: They're seniors in the hall, now
Arclight_Dynamo: I showed some Kids in the Hall to my younger sister for the first time last year, and she dug it, so at least some of it stands up.
BusTed: Don't put salt in your eye.
Lord_Hosk: They refer to it as "the show your grandparents wouldn't let your parents watch"
DentedPockets: "These are the Daves I Know" is one of my favorite sketches.

GapFiller: it feels maybe its time to start sending emails instead
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat Early to mid 90s.
TheMerricat: Thanks @Arclight_Dynamo :)
turnflank: That’s one slim case
GapFiller: TheMerricat Kids in the Hall was from the eighties
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat I believe the entirety of the series is on the CBC Gem streaming app.
PharaohBender27: My Dad's been coping with Covid by . . . buying DVDs of movies. And they're going to just be a huge pain in the ass to deal with down the road
LurkerSpine: One of my first job interviews out of a college for Blu Ray programming. They paid nothing, and most of the programming was in assembly.
ren_suzugamori_173: Can we get a signed copy.
GapFiller: LoadingReadyRun if people havent received the relevant emails yet who shd they start talking to?
CaptainSpam notes to himself to just get the DVD of Season 11
Nigouki: I still have my BD/HD-DVD combo drive!
kusinohki: I still have VHS tapes somewhere.... I don't even have a way of playing them anymore
TheMerricat: The early 90's is a hole in my TV culture. My parents decided to pull out of society and move us to live in the boondocks of Missouri without any access to TV right before my senior year of high school and I was too poor to afford a TV in college, so I didn't hook back into TV land till my first job late 1990's
ren_suzugamori_173: How much is the box set.
mowdownjoe: This is why open formats > proprietary.
CastleOtranto: Sorry, I backed at the Creepy Doll plush level. And have been haunted ever since.
GapFiller: lrrstore at pmcfulfillment got it
TheMerricat: lol
kusinohki: (I doubt it's a record)
AstraiaAoide: perfect timing as i just got here
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Honestly, my guess is most of what's from that era that's of any lasting worth is easy to find as a rerun
LurkerSpine: I have zero faith in steam pal. how many linux compatible games are even on the store?
couldntpickausername: there definitely was a time I would have wanted a windows switch but that time has passed
couldntpickausername: ironically what I wanted to do was put nintendo system emulators on it
ren_suzugamori_173: Breaking news: Beej was named sexiest man in the world. SeemsGood
Arclight_Dynamo: Look. The only reason I'm gonna buy a Switch is for games I can only get on a Switch. So I don't care about off-brand Switches.
Earthenone: i mean they have had the experiance of the N-gauge at least
CaptainSpam: @LurkerSpine As a Linux user, the answer is "enough, really".
TheMerricat: TBH the likelihood that anyone other than Valve staff will ever own a Steampal is zero, they have almost as many solid hardware projects that made it farther than this and never released as they have had attempts to make HL3.
RockPusher: LurkerSpine when combined with SteamPlay/Proton - almost everything in the Steam Catalogue
GapFiller: yeh theres a compilation of people asking Gabe abt HL3 over the yrs and his responses getting progressively less upbeat
Arclight_Dynamo: Like, am I weird in that I think *no one* cares about the Switch form factor? They only want the thing that lets them play a Mario? And companies going after the form factor are missing the point?
Arclight_Dynamo: Switches sell because Nintendo doesn't allow their games on other platforms. That's it.
Pteraspidomorphi: TheMerricat: Valve has good hardware... That they market poorly and cancel suddenly, much to everyone's annoyance
CaptainSpam: @Arclight_Dynamo And to play indie games in a portable form factor.
TheMerricat: @Arclight_Dynamo the people who care about the switch form factor are the people who miss their DS, they exist but they aren't the primary market and aren't the reason why the switch is so popular/hard to get ahold of
BusTed: 🤔
GapFiller: lrrWOW thanks
ren_suzugamori_173: Golden Sun for the switch please paul.
Fairgrim: So the answer is NO
SnackPak_: Pteraspidomorphi And that's why I won't buy anymore steam hardware
Arclight_Dynamo: @CaptainSpam @TheMerricat Hm, I suppose mobile is a part of it. I guess that's just not me, at all.
Pteraspidomorphi: At least they're still making the Index
turnflank: Anyone know what the context of him answering questions there? It’s not like Valve does stuff like that often as far as I know
TheMerricat: I'm still buying a Steam Index once I can find the time to build an Index compatible PC, but year same here @SnackPak_ otherwise.
DentedPockets: I'd be interested to see what % of owners still use the switch with their TV on a regular basis.
ren_suzugamori_173: Why can't i say cow in Spanish when i go to japan.
Lord_Hosk: I bought the switch for breath of the wild... and other games.
LurkerSpine: I dunno. Wii U was a marketing disaster
Lithobraker: I do like to be able to play the switch in bed...

DaSunao: @Lord_Hosk I bought the switch because its a portable console with a built in screen
ghyllnox: Nintendo has a history of putting out good consoles though
DylPage: You can travel with a Switch in a way you can't travel with a Wii U.
Arclight_Dynamo: So, to answer my question... yes. I am weird. :D
Kerrisis: Pokemon games have a similar effect.
TheMerricat: To be fair Beej, the Gamecube was before it's time, the Wii U was perceived as just a new WIi by a lot of people who were just fine with the Wii they had on their shelf.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah, I think Switch hit that sweet spot for portability
aitsu100: i got a switch for Pokemon
DeM0nFiRe: I got switch when I had a 2.5 hour commute each way to/from work. PLaying BotW during that commute was life changing
Blue_Anteater: Living in a house where you share the TV, the Wii U was fantastic cos you could keep playing even when someone else wanted to watch TV
Pteraspidomorphi: The Wii U was incredibly unwieldy, no idea how they ended up with that from the concept they originally had
DeM0nFiRe: (It was bus and train commute, not car lol)
Laserbeaks_Fury: I kinda wish there was a non-portable Switch :P
Blue_Anteater: And games where they used both the Wii U console screen and the TV was really fun
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe I figured, but thanks for confirming :D
Fairgrim: Yea I can't portable cause when I'm out I'm doing outside things.
DeM0nFiRe: :P
Athelgar: limit for entry is a big thing too, requiring a $700 or so tv to get the best out of a console is a barrier some cant surmount
Athelgar: not to mention space availability
TheMerricat: I couldn't portable because I was driving, before the switch. Now I can't portable because I have to watch to make sure my Uber driver doesn't somehow drive off the edge of a cliff while listening to Alex Jones on podcast.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean you play Skyrim on it, right? :P
DeM0nFiRe: @TheMerricat oof lol
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Ooof, sorry you've had to deal with Uber drivers listening to that kind of thing :\
Arclight_Dynamo: See, now that you all say this, it makes a lot of sense to me, even if it is entirely orthogonal to how I think about gaming.
DaSunao: I really enjoyed the switch for being able to play it while in a coffin rack
TheMerricat: I've learned alot about how other people drive normally since my broken foot and weekly trips to the podiatrist to check that my bones aren't going to jump out of my foot again :D
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Namely, like goddamn maniacs?
Laserbeaks_Fury: And I've seen MH Rise, the Switch is *just* powerful enough to pass that quality muster
Crokoking: the steampal might be able to do remote-play with your PC streaming to it
TheTunnelingCat: i honestly dont understand the "I want to play everything at maximum" sorta thing, I just dont get it
Traion: @themerricat I think listening to an Alex Jones podcast is probably a sign that the driver isn't all there
DaSunao: @TheTunnelingCat It looks better usually
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 what scares me the most is how many of them drive like maniacs AND feel like it's OK to have their phone playing a GOD DAMN VIDEO that they are watching at the same time.
RockPusher: I would be surprised if it didn't do SteamLink what with the assumption it will be running pretty much the full-fat Steam client
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat O_o katesScared
DaSunao: @TheMerricat NotLikeThis
LordZarano: SteamPal will 100% have SteamLink on it. There is no chance at all that Valve would release a portable without it
Earthenone: i imagine by focusing on specific processes the switch would run the parts of windows that you actually want to run well enough
TheMerricat: @Traion I can't get upset about that, as much as I feel worried about it, there are appearently a lot of people who can't get normal jobs due to.... issues that are in gig jobs because it's the only place that doesn't actively weed them out
DoodlestheGreat: Optimized for the hardware.
Earthenone: i have the lite, :(
couldntpickausername: if there is a switch pro coming I hope it's not like the 3DS where the more powerful one becomes mandatory for all games after a certain date.
chaostreader: ^
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Maybe, but I'd . . . not be comfortable around a driver like that. And sure, that's on me, but still.
LurkerSpine: I love the size of the lite, but I couldn't justify a second switch
couldntpickausername: because quite frankly I invested in the switch expecting to get certain games for it over time and I'm still waiting for some of those
LuveenW: Yeah Covid put a nail in that coffin, didn't it
DeM0nFiRe: Right, the Nintendo switch is not a handheld gaming device, it's a game console that happens to also be portable is how Nintendo originally marketed it (i.e. it was the Wii U successor, not the 3Ds successor)
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I mean for the most part if USB-C is now a display capable port, so as long as the Switch-like has that and is properly made it's a given that you can send the video to a display
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. So it's a misunderstanding of the Switch form factor?
misskale: I've taken the cradle with me and hooked up to a hotel TV. it's weird but it works
RockPusher: Plug into your USB-C Power Delivery/DisplayPort Monitor and go
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ultimately, the likely answer is that it's just a perfect storm\
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 I'm not entirely conformable either, hence my comments but I do understand that a lot of the drivers i've bumped into are driving because that's the only thing they can do.
DentedPockets: For me, when Pokemon exclusives came to the Switch, it changed from being a TV focused console to a mobile console. Pokemon just feels mobile to me.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Fair
Laserbeaks_Fury: Portability, power, titles
DeM0nFiRe: It's also weird because Switch is not the first thing of its formfactor, a LOT of android devices were made as like "a screen with controls bolted to the side"
DeM0nFiRe: Plus controls for your phone that go on either side of your phone have been made for a long time
codl_: how many PC games are going to behave when switching from 720p to 1080p or 4k of whatever?
LordZarano: NVidia Shield Tablet was before the Switch right?
Traion: I love my Lite, it is exactly what I want from my Nintendo console
dylan16807: well switch lite can't output to tv at all and I'm sure all these things can
SnackPak_: ditto, Heather
PharaohBender27: Oh no, the DVDs!
LurkerSpine: I've streamed games from my Xbox (played using a controller) and it was great.
Traion: That's it for S11. Beej ruined it
DeM0nFiRe: I end up not having many games on my phone because there aren't that many phone games I want to play that aren't just inferior ports of other games I already have elsewhere
Mai_Andra: I really want the new, blue switch lite. ...but I already have a switch, and I barely even play it currently... >.>
LurkerSpine: from my Xbox to my phone*
Fairgrim: I hate WFH and can't wait for the office to open up cause my work computer is my gaming rig.
LurkerSpine: It's only been out 2 months
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ehh, World of Warcraft and Destiny kind of do that
Invitare: Episodic
TheMerricat: Episodic gaming! Valve's greatest non-legacy!
Raolin_Darkbane: Honestly the Single Player MHRise had a decent ending, it's the multiplayer side, which was a bit open ended
Getter404: Still waiting for SIN Episodes part 2
Laserbeaks_Fury: The endings of the story arcs don't come out till later
Steelwolf171: When you plan a game like you're JJ Abrams you know you have a problem
DeM0nFiRe: I don't think MMO expansions are really comparable to an episodic single player game
RockPusher: Chapter Gaming? Like Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II lrrBEEJ
DeM0nFiRe: @RockPusher lol
TheMerricat: @Getter404 I have bad news for you... though I'm sure you know it....
Akaiatana: Abby Howard of Strip Search is putting out a chapter game right now. It'd rad.
Manae: only two months, and general theory is Covid kept then from quite finishing it
Laserbeaks_Fury: I think they are approaching Monster Hunter game nowadays as an MMO
Crokoking: Does Destiny have an ending? That's probably comparable to Monster Hunter
mitomanox: LUL HSWP
mitomanox: i mean HSWP LUL
TheMerricat: I mean MMO's having an ending vs other games...
LurkerSpine: Not really. Monster Hunter updates usually add monsters, which is the big draw
Styxseus: Having not played the updates yet, I think it may be a thing of scaling up the encounters so you can have a bigger final fight (since there's more things to fight now leading up to it)
Mai_Andra: World of Warcraft is really frustrating about that. Final Fantasy XIV actually has a full story with an ending, then the patch series continues the story past the ending.
ArcOfTheConclave: The draw of MonHun is the monster hunts
kusinohki: @Crokoking I imagine Destiny's ending will be "people stopped playing and Bungie was losing money on it"
LurkerSpine: The update adds one fight with an ending. The other added stuff, e.g. Valstrax, was the main thing

TheMerricat: Is the Banshee Queen still the ulimate baddie in WoW or did the "we are all going to the afterlife" expansion move past her?
Styxseus: :D

TheMerricat: LOL

Styxseus: :D

GhostValv: :O
axecalibur97: i just tuned in, but oyu look like Einstein Nokolas tesla and MArie Curie
GapFiller: so did Canadian Tyre accept that hot tub return then? Kappa
Pteraspidomorphi: I haven't seen any hot tub streams yet but I've seen four or five different streamers parodying the idea
KriegerSan: Princess auto would accept the return
Earthenone: does princess auto sell hot tubs?
Fairgrim: @GapFiller They should have gone to Princess Auto
PharaohBender27: @KriegerSan That was also my thought! :D
Akaiatana: Twitch has to label things like the Apple/Epic fight
Fairgrim: I love that the Otter Rescue camera is always the top of Hot Tube category now that things have died down.
CranstonSnord: the Otters stream is quality content
Traion: @pteraspidomorphi it showed up twice in my recommended streams, but the reaction was way overblown
EldarLuin: I rarely actually catch Chillpoint live. Neat.
couldntpickausername: I appreciate their approach to just giving this kinda stream their own category rather than banning them
TheMerricat: Is it that 'there are a lot of nuances" that they have to go through or just that they are unnecessarily concerned about policing certain genders over others.
couldntpickausername: and I love that they threw some shade on some people with "being attractive doesn't break our rules"
kusinohki: "let's operate a computer from a swimming pool" - don't see any potential problems there

Arclight_Dynamo: This is how this ends: "We banned you. So sue us."
CranstonSnord: I believe there's a section of the Twitch TOS specifically to keep Beej fully clothed
mitomanox: it still puzzles me that people get so horrified when they see a bit of skin in living people, but not when they see skulls being crushed, and other displays of extreme violence
Earthenone: yes, the high socieity of twitch steamers
PharaohBender27: @mitomanox But cooties! Kappa
GapFiller: yeh I've seen female streamers getting randos in their chat doing exactly that
ritchards: There has been a lawsuit about that already...
kusinohki: yeah, Paul! stop being so sexy!~
Traion: I've seen the "Do a hot tub stream" spam a lot over the last week
TheMerricat: @mitomanox blame the Puritans

Filthwizard1985: I so rarely catch this show live, this is neat
LuveenW: same, @Filthwizard1985 !
TheMerricat: Amazon wants it's cake and to eat it too. It wants Twitch to be the premium streaming platform where anyone who streams, streams there, but they also want to gatekeep their image so that it's still "the Video Game Streaming" platform.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat "Wanting to have your cake and eat it too" sums up a *lot* of the U.S.'s issues, IMO
Traion: The unified site also allows for channels to do multiple things
RobotInProgress: Impressive
richard_ermen: Oh, are we currently on Hot Tub Meta?
RockPusher: Plenty of BabyRage to go around jlrrFacepalm
LuveenW: @PharaohBender27 Agree! Such as wanting manufacturing jobs to remain in the U.S., and also not wanting to pay workers a livable wage with affordable healthcare
welcometothedndworld: what don't they do
Earthenone: batsu gaming is still gaming :P
kusinohki: do improv games count as gaming?
couldntpickausername: are there other channels that do as wide a variety of content as this?
Arclight_Dynamo: Thinks would be a lot easier if people would internalize "If you don't want to see it, don't look at it."
Laserbeaks_Fury: Would this even be an issue if Twitch hadn't been focused on gaming and that audience being super prone to gatekeeping in the first place
Arclight_Dynamo: *things, even
Traion: TTSF is totally gaming. It's Twitch Plays Ian Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: @Laserbeaks_Fury That too.
DeM0nFiRe: Based on seeing people complaining about twitch on reddit, I honestly think it's just people who like drama and want to be involved in drama so they complain loudly to create drama
TheMerricat: For the most part that I hear complaints from IRL streamers about things about hot tub streaming and "it's ilk" is that it's not fair that they are more popular than non-hot tub streamers. it's literally jealously vs gatekeeping.
richard_ermen: Can we get a LRR Beej Hot Tub Show?
GapFiller: Laserbeaks_Fury probably gamers aint the only people prone to gatekeeping
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Hot-tub soldering. Kappa
GapFiller: DeM0nFiRe yeh the people who go on the most abt drama tend to be the most interested in starting it
Earthenone: im not a content creator buti prefer categories, they help me find content i want to find
PharaohBender27: Dictatorship of the Advertisers
Traion: I'm predicting it now: Next "scandal" will be body paint streamers
TheMerricat: Wasn't just claims, it was verified wasn't it>
Dog_of_Myth: Yeah, it was verified
LordZarano: Meanwhile Twitter has actual porn alongside brands advertising and it operates just fine
Arclight_Dynamo: Chat, here's your homework: Read the Wiki article on "Monopsony."
TheMerricat: @Traion They were the proceeding scandal. There was a Twitch pogrom on body painters in 2019 that kicked off a lot of this conversation.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Give up bussing and start busking!

thegreatwyrdling: !
thegreatwyrdling: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 58:39.
Earthenone: in the same way that getting fired is informative of you finding work?
TheMerricat: @LordZarano to be fair twitter and twitch are extremely different platforms, it'd be difficult for advertisers to specify the sort of content they should be next to and Twitter is 600 lb gorilla so it's a lot harder to tell them "get rid of it or I walk"
RockPusher: Sadly there is still too much money in advertising - Twitch would be better and the company have less difficulty with things like this if they were monetised entirely by the viewers
kusinohki: @RockPusher I worry twitch would be a paid service under those conditions
Earthenone: i imagine hot tub advertisers are really happy about the new category
Arclight_Dynamo: "I don't want my super-macho truck to become associated with women in bikinis" is... when you spell it out, it's ridiculous.
Earthenone: they know where to focus their ads
Traion: It doesn't help that Twitch has a de facto monopoly so they can dictate stuff with worrying that the streamer might change sites
DaSunao: @Earthenone I think they'd enjoy it more if they were actual hottubs rather than an inflatable pool in a bedroom
Dog_of_Myth: But what if we put the F-150 in the hot tub?
DentedPockets: Twitch just needs to make an adult tag for these types of things. Get advertisers for 1-800 call centers, etc.
DaSunao: @Dog_of_Myth But what if we put the hottub in the F150?
RockPusher: kusinohki that is a legit concern - I think it would be self-defeating to cut off free viewing, but then you do have to balance the books between cost of service vs pulling in new paying viewers
Arclight_Dynamo: What happens if an advertiser says "No ads on LGBTQ+ tagged streams"?
PharaohBender27: Yeah, see what happened with the rotating PogChamp idea
ghyllnox: Is this because they don't want to advertise F150s to LGBT+ folx?
Mollylele: it is a myth that viewer support would fill the gap of advertising. Too many people are accustomed to free content.
Traion: The Pog Champ disaster showed us how little Twitch cares about moderation

RockPusher: Also available in June!
MolaMolaphant: or you could buy it now and have it earlier in june...
Earthenone: i mean if you order now, you will probobly get it in june
LordZarano: For LGBT+ Wrath Month
Fairgrim: Order now to have it for June!
Earthenone: unless you are in the uk
Athelgar: the algorythims content
Akaiatana: LRR doesn't dance to the Al Gore Rhythm.
Filthwizard1985: Got my LRR pride shirt last year
GapFiller: the worrying part ofc is how many people do se themselves in that inverse
Laserbeaks_Fury: Definitely a different dynamic when you're older than the platforms you utilize
kusinohki: companies be like "we sometimes send you a check, so I guess you work for us"
GapFiller: that theyre working for Twitch
Earthenone: thats kind of like saying bus riders should unionize?
Dog_of_Myth: Yeah, cause Amazon likes dealing with unions....
GapFiller: it feels theres a v gig economy debate to be had on that front
PharaohBender27: Problem is, does *Twitch* see the relationship that way?
Akaiatana: "Yes, talk to my firm, Me and Twitch."
EldarLuin: That's what the TOS said IIRC
Laserbeaks_Fury: Closer to a Old West Partner
GapFiller: yeh actually thinking abt it the way Twitch sees the streamers is worryingly close to the way Uber and companies of their ilk see their so called employees
RockPusher: Hi, I'm a partner at the firm Hottub, Hottub, Hottub and Heated Gamer Moment
Crokoking: partner also prevents you from streaming on other platforms i believe
Nigouki: it's an old meme but it checks out Kappa
GapFiller: DO NOT WANT
DentedPockets: Wow, this is a deep joke, isn't it.
LunarJade: @Crokoking I think that actually depends on a special contract. Twitch doesn't allow you to multistream at the same time on other platforms but thats not the same as not being able to stream on other platforms.
GapFiller: it figures Do Not Want is old enough now that a non zero amount of people dont know where its from
Lysander_Gustav: Someone re-dubbed the movie with it
GapFiller: hence stuff like Do Not Want
Earthenone: yes, i too was alive in the 90's

roackmanbeercan: when i was fighting cancer i watched mtg LRR to get thru it when i thanked them for helping me get thru it by entertaining all i got was a rude snarky comment so after that i couldnt watch anymore

SAJewers: it's been claimed some of the sonic 3 music was maed by michael jackson
Snowcookies: ha
TheMerricat: "According to some involved in development, Michael Jackson composed portions of the Sonic 3 soundtrack but went uncredited. His involvement was denied by senior Sega staff."
SnackPak_: Reggie!

Earthenone: me too heather
Arclight_Dynamo: Circulate the tapes, gamers. Kappa
DeM0nFiRe: Solid reference
Foxmar320: im trying to get mew in pixelmon right now lol
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's really hard for me to reconcile arcade cabinets had different versions, but it's software so of course they did. But the kid in me that played them still view them as these monoliths
Fire_Summoner: We all know the Mew struggle!
DeM0nFiRe: The crazy thing about those mew truck rumors was that the truck does exist when it shouldn't, so it made the rumor as a whole more believable
TheMerricat: Mortal Kombat more likely
TheMerricat: Mortal Kombat was the king of urban legends made real in the later games
Sunrise_Laro: samurai showdown i believe
GapFiller: speaking o MK Ermac happend cz of all that
Arclight_Dynamo: There's a game for Atari 2600 that generates a maze every time, randomly. No one can figure out why the code works.
BusTed: I remember some soft locks you could perform on the old SF2 cabinets that would require a reset.
Snowcookies: huh
Lysander_Gustav: eugh
GlennSeto: Seems low-ish.
Laserbeaks_Fury: So more movies on Prime?
PharaohBender27: The march of monopolization continues
DiamondMX: MGS4's torture sequence is an example of that. It doesn't matter how quickly you bash the button - the game always makes you feel like you're about to die.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Woooo Tom and Jerry
CaptainSpam: There was also the classic NBA Jam thing where Chicago at Detroit would always throw bricks in the closing minute or so of the game...
Earthenone: all numbers over 5 digits are just fake numbers to me
Shadowner: good for mgm
storiers: my sympathies to any employees of mgm
TheMerricat: Even if it gets approved the owners of the Bond franchise are fighting the whole "all bond on Amazon Prime" thing
asddsa28: oooo
Twilight_Spark: The originals are the last ones I played, so that's officially feeling ancient.
GlennSeto: That seems like giving away the game.
DentedPockets: It's good for couples :)
Foxmar320: Yeah they had a Sword and Shield combo
Juliamon: Too cowardly to just remake Platinum
Earthenone: i like the combo packs, you and a friend just go in together
Faulpyr: The combo packs are good for couples or friends, yeah.
RunningMonkeys: I've gotten the combo packs with my brother.
Angreed66: They're being honest that heir ustomers don't actually trade
Foxmar320: Sword and Shield had some other differences like Gyms
Shadowner: typically a couple dozen
Jorge4hg: the combo pack i like a lot because i buy it with my brother
Shadowner: if you only got one as a present, you dont need the combo
Laserbeaks_Fury: Still counts as only 1 Christmas gift
Foxmar320: Im looking forward to Pokemon Legends
RunningMonkeys: all of the above
Arclight_Dynamo: It's a "ch" sound. Kappa
josh___something: It's pronounced Arceus
Mordin_Solus_Sings: See, now I'm hearing it in my head for "Amadeus Amadeus"
jarnatan: It's pronounced gif
GlennSeto: @Arclight_Dynamo It certainly wouldn't be in Germany. Kappa
DiamondMX: It's a hard c, but with an invisible soft c on top of that. It sounds like eating spaghetti upside down.
mowdownjoe: Detective Pikachu used the soft c. The anime dub used the hard c. *shrug*
Mai_Andra: ♫ Oh Oh Oh Armachaeus ♫
DentedPockets: Beej said "building" and now I want a Pokemon game like Dragon Quest Builders.
couldntpickausername: pokemon aesw
couldntpickausername: pokemon arse
GlennSeto: can't imagine why
MolaMolaphant: some people just want the regular kind???
GlennSeto: But it's free!
PMAvers: The Nintendo Blowjob Vitality Sensor

TheMerricat: I feel like despite her protestations, Heather enjoys these kerfuffles that the Nintendo community gets into. :P lrrBEEJ
LinearGif: New Super Mario Switch Bros
PMAvers: The New Nintendo Switch Pro... Controller
GamesAndInk: I don't think Nintendo is dumb enough to make an X-Switch after they made a WiiU and nobody bought it because they thought it was the same thing
PharaohBender27: katesLol
couldntpickausername: @GamesAndInk 'the new 3d2'
couldntpickausername: 3ds
PMAvers: It's been a while, maybe some Pro Joycons
couldntpickausername: can't type suddenly
GamesAndInk: @couldntpickausername exactly
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh. I just made up "Super Nintendo Switch." I thought it was a joke.
LinearGif: It's pronounced Arsene smh
HundreydAundre: They greyed out the Switch? Wait. They haven't yet?
DiamondMX: It's pronounced Alvin in the dub.
Lithobraker: Waiting for Nintendo power bottom to be announced
PMAvers: Pokemon Joker's Stand
Mai_Andra: I think "pokemon arse" has already shown up in the chaat today.
Jorge4hg: or when the new switch lite color everyone thought for sure was the pro
TheMerricat: Nintndeo is going to troll everyone and announce a new Switch dock instead of a new Switch.
DentedPockets: Just a portable 80" television with switch controllers on the side.
TheMerricat: It'll be PS5 shaped.
DeM0nFiRe: Reminds me of .hack GU, they gave the voice actors different instructions on how to pronounce varous proper nouns between the 1st and 2nd game, and it is quite jarring if you play them back to back
Lysander_Gustav: It's sort of "tag" but with horror elements
josh___something: Yep, It's The first time an NPC actually shows up in DbD with zombies
Pinwiz11: the re dlc looks amazing

misteline: hmmm. was checkpoint later than usual today? I just looked out my window and it's dark

Earthenone: checkpoint was an hour later than normal yes

Arclight_Dynamo: Quick! Register KrondorStans dot com! Kappa
Lysander_Gustav: New mods will be released. Sherrif mode Krondor
Kazman20a: the funniest thing about your playthru is that until you said that the book had a copy of the CD in the back I never new it was there
josh___something: You can't get the Crossover Killers and survivors in DbD without paying for them.
LordZarano: SARS aka CoViD-02
Fairgrim: Is this part of that movie phenomenon of two movies with the same plot debuting at the same time
PharaohBender27: I was watching Betrayal at Krondor streams before it was cool Kappa
Crokoking: We want a Betrayal at Krondor run at GDC ^^
jessieimproved: I will admit I picked up the game at GOG because somehow, I missed it the first time around, and I am totally that old
Arclight_Dynamo: Well... Return to Krondor.
Nigouki: They're gonna remake it in a JRPG style
GlennSeto: "Betrayal 2: Fool Me Twice!"
Angreed66: Popularity spikes require collaboration to really blow up
ATrophonian: You started it!
Mai_Andra: They actually remade the game 10 years ago, they've just been waiting for the right hype wave to release it.
TemporallyAwry: I tuned in at the right time, eh? lrrBEEJ
LinearGif: But first, we need to talk about parallel universes
EldarLuin: Krondor 2: The search for more betrayal
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun actually one of the devs already started a modern remake of the game using Amazon's Lumber engine. But he has definitively said he was doing it to learn the engine and not to sell it.
Lysander_Gustav: It was so weird, that book. It has parts in the novel that felt like gameplay.
Arclight_Dynamo: "Beej ranted." Kappa
PharaohBender27: "He inhaled."
Scy_Anide: I enjoyed that monologue.
