TheMerricat: chat, I just realized it's almost time for checkpoint.... but can't find my homework!
red_shoes_jeff: @TheMerricat And you're not wearing ANY PANTS!
Creideiki_SE: Blame it on the dog. Cute puppy pictures may or may not help.
beowuuf: there was no teaser trailer this week, lrrEFF it they are doing it live. I mean, without the actual show part
Sethalidos: they didn't do a video this week due to the PPR correct?
Juliamon: correct
beowuuf: yup, that's my understanding. Taxing PPR meant chill points and chill times for LRR peeps
Juliamon: G used up all his health on the PPR and yesterday was a sick day for him
TheMerricat: So what you are saying chat is that none of you did the homework? Damn Heather's gonna be pissed at us.
beowuuf: The teaser trailer was the friends we pointed at along the way
LunarJade: We've evolved to not needing a teaser to our show!
beowuuf: the show has become the teaser for the next show?
TheMerricat: True, but that means the whole thing is going to hinge on what tangent Beej can take us on in the opening minute, no pressure :P
Sethalidos: (in really bad Scottish accent)*shrug* bring it on ghostie I'll fookin fite ye
Sethalidos: :p
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy!
beowuuf: sergeHi
Sethalidos: have him talk about hot tub streams and how vtubers are joining in just to make fun of it
PharaohBender27: So, a Chillpoint without a Checkpoint beforehand. Wonder what this week's stories will be.
TheMerricat: LOL I'd love to see a Vtuber do a hot tub stream :D
beowuuf: ironic hot tub session leads to unironic views
Sethalidos: I saw oine
Earthenone: when vtubers do it, is it called onsen streaming?
Sethalidos: the vtuber was using a devil avatar and was chilling in a hot tub full of lava in hell :D
TheMerricat: All the Vtubers on my Youtube reccomended list are pure Japanesse streamers (i.e. they are cute but I have absolutely no idea what they or the chat is saying) so I haven't managed to hook onto any yet but I love the idea behind them.
beowuuf: ooh, we have a title change, didn't notice before
Creideiki_SE: They didn't mention the otters last week, right? Maybe we'll get the Official CheckPoint Hot Take on them today.
TheMerricat: Worse comes to worse we can just spam Lady D. fan art at them till something happens :P

Lord_Hosk: They can make MORE 3080TIs than they could make 3090s and they perform as well if not better for most games.
Decaped: yeah, this graphics card exists so the MSRP can be higher.

bytecaster: Arguably, the 3090 was never really a gaming card, and more of a workstation card with gaming branding, if that makes any sense?
PixelArtDragon: it would matter if you're buying 100 of them for a studio
boilersnake: Ist is supposedly out but you can‘t find it

Garfy400: 1 to 5 years
Earthenone: thats how i feel about a lot of magic cards :P
Garfy400: I have a 1080 and I'm counting myself lucky
FITorion: nvidia is still top dog. especially if you want ray tracing.
Garfy400: except for raytracing
Master_Gunner: I think it technically wins, but value per dollar is still *terrible*
trilemma85: What is the normal, non-scalped, price for a 3080 in $CAD?
Snowcookies: But do you need ray tracing
Sethalidos: wait
bytecaster: @TheMerricat They play in very different arenas kinda, so it is a bit like comparing apples to oranges. CPU are great at very sequentially big tasks, while GPUs are great at doing small tasks, but a lot of them at once. Highly simplified.
RockPusher: A Road Quest Car
Sethalidos: I wish my rent was only $1200/ mo
beowuuf: look, we haven't watched all those streams of betrayal at krondor, and shadowrun before that, not to know beej takes his time and consideres things like the value of money!
NightValien28: a 3080 costs over 13k here, its absolute nonsense
saberpilot: I don't know what a 3070 is in Canadian, but I barely managed to snag one for my husband about a month ago and it was $700 USD
muondecay: Current prices are insane across the board. I have an older generation card, and its currently selling for 3 times what I paid for it over a year ago.
saberpilot: for scalpers, it's like $1.2k USD
saberpilot: some people are doing that (buying internationally and then shipping)
Garfy400: less
TheMerricat: The MSP of the 3080 is $1,900 USD = 1,448.66 CAD
saberpilot: that's bonkers
photosinensis: $1200 for a month's rent is NICE. I've paid a lot more than that.
TheMerricat: not 1,900, 1,200.
Garfy400: I'll stick with 1080 + PS5
ANeMzero: when I lived in Vancouver it was $750 CAD a month for a tiny room that had about 3 square feet of walking space after my bed and desk.
Foxmar320: I need to replace the GPU in my PC because it's failing and ive been unable to find one anywhere
kusinohki: wasn't one of the road quest cars 1200 ??
TheMerricat: I'm living in a small apartment in St. Louis and rent is $950 USD...
RockPusher: Cheapest RTX 3080 Ti I can see at local retailer - NZ$3199
bytecaster: At this point, they could announce a new card and not make any, and nobody would really notice, just business as usual
ANeMzero: Nvidia calls their reference version the "Founders Edition"
pyronils80: Hello and good evening! :) :) :)
Infected_Dragoon: Hi
ANeMzero: So The Magic Circle as a JRPG
Earthenone: so, a normal jrpg :P
Infected_Dragoon: Does anyone know around when friday night paper fight starts?
Riiiiiiis: how about a "Graphics card as a service" ?? You get good hardware and pay per month for a certain performance :-D
codatski: Convenient, now we'll never know what is a real bug or not
Juliamon: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
Gnyrinn: Check out our artisanal graphics cards. Lots and lots of transistors that are <20nm long. (Note that this particular nm stands for Nautical miles)
Earthenone: in about 3 hours
Snowcookies: lmao
Riiiiiiis: perfect solution!! nooo problem
Garfy400: gsync = nsync???
BrookJustBones: Sounds like a fun PiF
Snowcookies: Magic Circle yeah
Earthenone: ohh yeah, i remember that one
s0lesurviv0r: Mystic Circle...we're thinking of changing the name
bytecaster: Deleted all your save files? Bad ending, I guess
Fairgrim: it's a feature?
s0lesurviv0r: deleting saves that Yoko Taro level game design
Gizmoloid: @s0lesurviv0r :D
ANeMzero: Event[0] had an unintended "Good" ending that was the result of a bug
PharaohBender27: Wasn't that the name of a newspaper comic strip, exclamation point and all?
beowuuf: lol
RebekahWSD: Hoping to see LRR play Overboard! at some point yes yes
electric_claire: Inkle is great! They also did 80 days and the Sorcery! games.

Foxmar320: Ive never been a fan of the PS app

Garfy400: spoiler: no one knows what they're doing
DeM0nFiRe: I had to install an app on my phone to set up my internet and then the stupid app didn't even work and I had to call them anyway
bytecaster: Every printer does essentially the same thing, there should be like 3 drivers.
PharaohBender27: ^
DeM0nFiRe: Liek my home internet, not mobile internet
couldntpickausername: wow, you can still do the normal drivers on windows, I guess they didn't do that for mac
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW

Gnyrinn: I think the answer is Enterprise printers. Nuts to the consumer tier.
methodia_chicken: I did the def
Garfy400: Been is my tech spirit animal
bytecaster: I mean, Enterprise printers are also not all that great, but yeah, often at least somewhat better
Araragi298: whoa is Beej wearing a wig?
bytecaster: We made this app for you, with the same tech that we use for the website, but now we can harvest your data.
Qvdv: Araragi298 nope, that's all his
PharaohBender27: @Araragi298 Have you not seen a stream for a while? He's been growing his hair out since last summer
Henshini: I had to get a new printer because neither the generic Mac drivers nor the hp app would print on it
TheMerricat: And Experience WONT let you download without having an account.
Sky_Kast: nah he's 100% the professor
Araragi298: I have not seen Beej for a while, clearly
Juliamon: Araragi298 It's partially an illusion, he uses his headphones to push it all forward
bytecaster: Yeah, you can get the drivers normally, buuuut if you want to use some of the more advanced features like streaming or shadowplay, I think you need the experience thingy
MagicalAttackGecko: "No, megacorp, you dont need my birthday"
BlueFingers5: if it wasn't for the streaming I wouldn't use Nvidia Experience
RandomTrivia: Hi friends! lrrHEART
Henshini: Old man beej thinks his info isn’t already out there
bytecaster: @BlueFingers5 Same
Sky_Kast: yeah like brave
TheMerricat: It's amazing how many people were born on 1/1/2000. Folk must have been going at it like bunnies on April 1st.
LurkerSpine: yeah, there is a playstation equivalent of true achievements
Sky_Kast: so tricky
lirazel64: If I was to do the things the nyt wants, I'd have 3 apps on my phone just for them.
PharaohBender27: @Henshini I'm sure he knows it is, it's the principle of the thing.
EvilBadman: Vita means life.
Lord_Hosk: I have so many trophys and badges on the LRR forums
Spluuga: but your HP printer app can apply your favorite instagram filter automatically to your prints :P
GapFiller: maybe get their AIM's
margravetech: that seems like the kind of messaging service full of ten-year-olds with very colored commentary about my mother
PharaohBender27: @Spluuga That sounds . . . super annoying. "Hey, we see you like sepia tones, so we're printing this work document in sepia!"
GapFiller: sometimes they were called The Sporting News Baseball
RockPusher: F1, F2… Mario Kart
MrSVCD: Brock Leasnar does a F5...
djalternative: There's Formula 1, 2, 3, G, and E I believe
Qvdv: Drive to Survive
TheMerricat: They actually already have f4 too.
RockPusher: Formula Luigi is gonna cut you!
Fairgrim: F1 racing and other full sim racing is pretty awesome but also can get expensive
Shiferl is continuing the Gift Sub they got from HoodedBowman!
LordZarano: @djalternative What's G?
djalternative: @djalternative I believe it's their gaming division
lirazel64: What, booze-filled parties?
Earthenone: i used to do alternative F4, but i was forced to quit Kappa
RockPusher: Hmmm - the Oxenfree conversation system for simulating a press conference would be an interesting idea…
KakuEpsilon: Boo!
Electrodyne: allez allez
Nigouki: they saw what Idolm@ster and Kantai Collection did to the football manager genre and realized people want a much much deeper escape fantasy than just sports stats
lirazel64: I suspect it's like the Olympics -- heart-throb bios for drrrrrrama.
Lord_Hosk: Interpersonal rivalries because one person got signed by red bull but you got signed by Ferrari when you came up together all the way up from cart through F2 on the same team. so now you hate them. Even though there are only like 8 spots available each year so you both getting a seat in a year should mean you are thrilled for each other
GerrardUK: That was Formula E

Snowcookies: nice pushing of guilt
Creideiki_SE: @Daye04 That speedrun wasn't even a Parker Square!
RunningMonkeys: why even risk it. just get a clean install.
GamesAndInk: He also didn't turn his game files to his moderation team like he was supposed to, IIRC? So that + not saying he had that mod = man what a liar
TheMerricat: The worse part was he originally was asked to share his install and instanopped out and said "By default I always delete the whole install everytime so I don't have it any more"....
lirazel64: So, is he doing a clean run now?
Daye04: @creideiki_se a oooh, are you a more real stand up Matt fan than I? I don't even recognize Parker Square 😄
RockPusher: Almost always the Mea Culpa is the correct PR move
Decaped: no, he took his ball and went home. he deleted all his records.
Mai_Andra: But then he wouldn't get all the attention. FBtouchdown
josh___something: From what I remember, it's extremely obvious when you boot up minecraft that you have mods on
GamesAndInk: If he is a professional Minecraft player, he should've noticed he had the mod on as soon as he started trading.
Creideiki_SE: @Daye04 The Parker Square is "the mascot of giving it a go, but ultimately failing". It's *almost* a very special magic square. From one of his nideos on Numberphile, I believe.
NotCainNorAbel: here is the thing, as a professional on anything, you are never too deep.
GamesAndInk: @josh___something only if you use the standard modding routes of Forge or Fabric. But before they existed, people modded Minecraft directly.
Daye04: @creideiki_se oh, cool. I do like Numberphile. so it's not impossible that I've seen it, but just forgotten the term 😄
TheMerricat: Chat the Dream's 'mods' were datapacks/resource packs so in THEORY, it would be possible to launch the game and play it without knowing it was modded, but I think we all realize this is 100% "My dog ate my homework" bullshit.
DeM0nFiRe: Cheating does happen in speedrunning from time to time, and sometimes the game's community will eventually accept runs from the person again (often with extra requirements on verification of course)
Lord_Hosk: Beej, he has a three quarters of a million subs... and the DreamSMP streams Minecraft Roleplay he is a part of are the most popular thing on youtube
LadyDKat: Windows installation party!
dragonwarrior000: if he was going back and forth between speed runs and entertainment content then it could be easy to forget or miss if one run had it on or off but thats not me declaring im siding with him
Mai_Andra: Dream trends on twitter for one reason or another every week from all the stan accounts. I wouldn't be surprised if they all argue that he would never cheat, even when he explicitly admits to cheating.

Decaped: yeah, this is a story because it's Dream, one of the most popular Minecraft youtubers. If this was a nobody, this isn't a story.
Easilycrazyhat: Weirdly, Matt Parker reminds me so much of Matt Smith
DeM0nFiRe: Oh yeah the perfect bridge hand video was super neat
Lord_Hosk: Exactly Decaped
Gizmoloid: Speaking of speedrun scandals, turns out a ridiculous number of Trackmania records were cheated. Something like thousands, I think?
BibitteNoire: True randomness is extremely extremely hard to achieve
Lord_Hosk: one of the most popular minecraft youtubers, who is a part of the team which is currently dominating youtube
DeM0nFiRe: Finally something goes Nintendo's way
Mollylele: Matt Parker is not the lab-grown hybrid of Trey Parker and Matt Stone?
Izandai: Nope.
TheMerricat: That's not that surprising @Gizmoloid from what I can recall of Trackmania it wasn't that tight of a game.
dragonwarrior000: I don't like the probability argument cause it's always "It's so low it could never happen" but it's not 0 though
djalternative: or a medium cash hamlet
ostera_toralen: i definitely do not remember romuniverse
Qvdv: ah, the person that defended themselves, interesting strat
ostera_toralen: for legal purposes
Ouzora: omg I love that P5 shirt. A+ drip
jedi_master_zll: As a programmer true randomness is theoretically impossible to program. You just get "good enough" randomness.
Lord_Hosk: Mollylele It can neither be confirmed nor denied
Invitare: letigious
Izandai: @dragonwarrior000 It's impossible to know anything for certain. There's always some possibility, however slim, that the evidence of your senses is false in some way. Fundamentally, we can only ever make decisions based on extreme likelihoods, not true certainties.
TheOtherTrevor: cd-ROM
Mai_Andra: CR-ROMs are a myth. xivGoob
MrSVCD: CD-roms are small now.
LurkerSpine: @Izandai That sounds quite hyperbolic. There are plenty of things that are verifiable.
TheMerricat: BTW chat, just a heads up, declaring bankruptcy DOES NOT discharge debts incurred due to violating copyrights, at least in the US someone already tried that route and the courts shut them down.
DeM0nFiRe: But if I put "no copyright intended" on my rom site, it's legal right? Kappa
Izandai: @dragonwarrior000 And really, the argument against Dream is not "It's so unlikely that these odds are legitimate we can say with certainty that they aren't", the argument is "It's so unlikely that these odds are legitimate that it's much more likely that he just cheated."
couldntpickausername: nintendo is not the bad guy in the scenario when they defend their trademarks or take down rom sites
LordZarano: @dragonwarrior000 It was at the level where if there were 1000s of Earths where every single person was doing nothing but minecraft speedruns constantly for their entire lives you still wouldn't expect to see even 1 run like this, though
GapFiller: smart move
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
PharaohBender27: Oh nnooooooo
Izandai: That's a brave move.
PharaohBender27: Oh honey no
Spluuga: awww yeees
ostera_toralen: I used to work at a court, and that was ALWAYS entertaining
josh___something: ruhroh
KiaStirling: Since Switch has SNES & NES games and more coming, Nintendo could probably make an argument that they are planning to keep adding other old games and that this site is stepping on their toes by doing so
jedi_master_zll: It worked in Nsburg
GapFiller: the kinda person who wd attempt to fight that also being the kinda person to defend themself sounds abt right
Snowcookies: uuhhh
ostera_toralen: people who choose to defend themselves are always a bit crazy
Easilycrazyhat: One internet entrepreneur vs Nintendo's legal department. Who will win?!
TheMerricat: on the flip side he might not jhave been able to find an actual lawyer who would have defended him so if he didn't want to cop to it....
Gizmoloid: @TheMerricat Don't know if it had a reputation for easy cheating, but the way it was discovered was interesting: turns out the run files used for uploading records actually contained all control inputs, so someone analysed them and found out that people were making impossibly quick adjustments, which meant they were actually playing in slow-mo.
Lord_Hosk: dragonwarrior000 its not that its impossible, its that when you take that a abnormal statistical outlier happened to dream not once, not twice but dozens of times in a row, thats what made it suspicious. Outliers happen, but when it happened Every time he streamed a speedrun it looked suspicious.
GapFiller: sometimes people do infact get what they deserve
TheMerricat: ok that's cute @Gizmoloid, I like it when the game includes something like that for verification.
Diabore: beej, you could say, you pity that fool?
DeM0nFiRe: Not 100% sure but I think the article said his revenue was down to 800 per month and he was already on welfare before the lawsuit?

DeM0nFiRe: I think they spun off t he DVD to a separate business no longer called Netflix?
EvilBadman: @djalternative Absolutely still exists
Gizmoloid: @TheMerricat yeah that's a cute feature, but what's weird is apparently it was there for years, and no one knew about it! The cheaters were not caught by the devs AFAIK, someone else figured out what that data actually was and put in months of work to analyze the records. Wild.
bytecaster: Beej, don't give them ideas.
DeM0nFiRe: Ah it's called DVD {dot} com now
LurkerSpine: I dunno, that DVD rental service that streamed the DVD player's output didn't work out legally

TheMerricat: To my knowledge there are different rights for lending vs. owning. I seem to recall you couldn't just go to Walmart and buy a DVD to loan it out you had to pay $1000 for a 'rental copy' to be legal.
Easilycrazyhat: that's so very dumb
bytecaster: Conveniently, the publisher do not need to spend any money on those "new" copies they sell.
aerobeing: And the limited number of digital "copies".

QuietJay: Is it a hypothetical award?
SpoonfullOfSugar: Best Booth, Best Demo, Most Anticipated, Best Custscene gameplay
RandomTrivia: "where everything is made up and the awards don't matter"

LordZarano: Hey! I liked Balloon Fight! ...Or rather I liked the Balloon Fight minigame in Warioware
s0lesurviv0r: How is the pay for hyped virtual audiences?
s0lesurviv0r: hired hyped virtual audiences
EvilBadman: All the press do these awards on their own coverage already, this is weridly consolidating
NojhLivic: So it's a glorified poll
lirazel64: It's like sportswriters voting for the baseball Hall of Fame.
GapFiller: lode1 given Cages previous track record is v well known at this point it feels much as w/e he said is almost certainly awful it really isnt that newsworthy
RandomTrivia: It won't the true "most anticipated" though, it will just be the one they think is probably most anticipated
Izandai: That's what E3 needed, a win-more mechanic.
NojhLivic: THey did this last year during some of the other virtual video game cons if I remember right. E3 is just copying them I guess.
EvilBadman: The voting for these awards are from a press panel, not public
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Izandai: Oh they fuckin' better.

Spluuga: Maybe they'll have an app with a applause button the viewers can tap like Eurovision had :P
LordZarano: ALL award ceremonies are dull
NojhLivic: But the lack of any actual merit to judge is the problem.
Izandai: Actually, what I really hope is that Nintendo's presentation begins with Eiji Aonuma being like "I can't tell you anything about BOTW2 yet, but I'll have information for you later in the year." And then at the end of Nintendo's presentation, he comes back and is like "I didn't say *much* later in the year." And then we get a BOTW2 presentation.
Izandai: I would LOVE if they did that.

saucemaster5000: just call it the j.j. abrams award

CaptainSpam: I feel as if that wouldn't make the movie any better. :p
jessieimproved: It's a raw cut
Izandai: Are you saying they released the [producer's name] cut?
jessieimproved: There are timestamps on some of the frames
TheMerricat: #releaseMarioSnyderscut
RandomTrivia: Praise the Wayback Machine!
jessieimproved: It's mostly bits between scenes
Lysander_Gustav: It's not a great movie
saucemaster5000: I love hearing how much of a production nightmare that movie was. Dennis Hopper was supposed to film for three weeks and it took 17 weeks
Lord_Hosk: Its mostly bad
GapFiller: Dennis Hopper Dennis Hopper Dennis Hopper
GapFiller: Dennis Hopper
Lysander_Gustav: It's longer mud-bath scenes
MostExcellentHat: watched it, the movie flows better than the theatrical version, still terrible though
ANeMzero: I watched the first 15 minutes and most of the new stuff is just like.. "this scene starts a little sooner or ends a little later"
Sethalidos: you should be Heather, you should be

Fairgrim: SMB was a classic dumb movie

Izandai: what
floki4242: mario vs the mob
GapFiller: tbf it WAS the early 90's
RandomTrivia: EXCUSE
Lord_Hosk: Release the Luo Albano cut
saucemaster5000: Dennis Hoppers son asked him why he did the movie, and he replied "I need to buy you shoes" -- Henry Hopper apparently then said "Dad I don't need shoes that much."
NojhLivic: I've yet to watch the cut but my understanding it re-introduces some of the original "cyberpunk" aspects the directors had before Disney forced the to re-write to target children.
Mai_Andra: They just started rapping from outta nowhere. It was amazing. xivGoob
s0lesurviv0r: but where are the cut scenes from the Double Dragon movie?
LurkerSpine: early 90s
PharaohBender27: @saucemaster5000 I'd forgotten that katesLol
GapFiller: long movies back in the day had intermissions tho
darkora: I think the Mario Bros film was the product of -A LOT- of cocaine, like A LOOOOOOT
TheMerricat: Previously-unseen deleted scenes include the Mario Bros running afoul of the (probably Mafia-connected) Scapelli plumbing company, Koopa murdering a technician by de-evolving him into slime, and Iggy and Spike rapping about the overthrow of King Koopa at the Boom Boom Bar. (Along with some dancing women who were censored for the theatrical cut.) There's more of Lena, Daniella and the Brooklyn Girls.

Lysander_Gustav: rocket boots are not a bad idea
GapFiller: I can never look at Bowser w/o immediately thinking of Dennis Hopper thanks to SMB
CranstonSnord: 12-year-old Paul: "Um, actually"
Lysander_Gustav: But the whole movie was bad
Easilycrazyhat: That movie is a fever dream and I love it. It is a treasure.
EvilBadman: "It's a...BOB-OMB!"
Norph00: It fits in the context of 90's kids movies.
DeM0nFiRe: "The video game is so much better" LUL
Nigouki: disappointed in it as a kid, not disappointed in it as a modern internet fanboy that sends death threats to people involved with the movie
ashesandmochi: that movie is such a fever dream
Mai_Andra: Lance Henrikson was in it for 15 seconds.
CAKHost: You know, The Mario Brothers Film at least did the jump boots better than Portal 1 did
Norph00: Like The ninja turtle movies were on this same level
Laserbeaks_Fury: Also, that SMB3 preview
Fairgrim: Wizard it the movie of a kid with the power glove
EvilBadman: The Wizard, or now known as Nintendo Direct: SMB3
Lysander_Gustav: The power glove scene was weird.
serramarkov: But Mortal Kombat rules!
CaptainSpam: The Wizard wasn't all that good, either. Kappa
CAKHost: Though I guess I don't know if those boots protect one from long fall damage...
Izandai: Oh. I thought those were the koopas.
NojhLivic: The idea the original director's had was actually kinda cool cyberpunk a re-imaginging of the Mario Bro's ideas. as a kid, I was totally on board. The original diretors were the creators of Max Headroom. So that might help explain what was happening.
Snowcookies: yeah
GapFiller: mmm Dennis Hopper
Easilycrazyhat: It's amazing.
Lord_Hosk: the wizard wasnt a bad movie
TheThromborax: The Angry Birds Movie is the best video game movie. Fight me. I will die on this hill

Lysander_Gustav: oh, okay
NotCainNorAbel: okay, I was going to say that movie was pretty rough to watch
Fairgrim: WaterWorld was a strange trip
Simonark: This was Dennis Hopper's curse!
TheThromborax: the extended Waterworld is almost as good as the soundtrack to the SNES Waterworld game
CranstonSnord: an extra hour of Kevin Costner drinking his own urine?
saucemaster5000: wow I just realized dennis hopper was in two overbudgeted basically reshot disasters in the 90s
Mai_Andra: Where is that available, because I really want to see it?
jessieimproved will remember
TehAmelie: i've never heard of this. but now i gotta watch ut
GapFiller: just think The Postman exists cz people saw Waterworld and thought Kevin Costner deserved another chance
s0lesurviv0r: movie trading cards
SuperTanookiMario: Did the Mario movie have Nintendo's seal of quality?
TheMerricat: The fan edit for Waterworld is called the Ulysses Edit.
cuttlefishman: The Postman was an okay book
Japolai: apparently there were 2 cuts of waterworld, 1 that was all action and 1 that was all story and this is them properly cut together
CAKHost: Bowser turned someone into a monkey at the end of the movie. Though it was more of a chimpanzee
Izandai: Because apparently it's 2008?
Sunmare_Dragon: why is there monkey is always good question
CAKHost: If I remember?
glitched_goddess: Oh hey, Beej is cosplaying as Vir from B5 lol
PMAvers: So what, is it a virus that infects people's devices that turns them into a massive DDOS zombie horde?
kusinohki: was the monkey refered to as donkey kong?
Lord_Hosk: Waterworld really fell apart because it stretched too far and the sets got ruined by a tropical storm, then the studio basically fired the director and Kevin Costner was like "sure I guess Ill finish it if no one else will" and knew nothing about directing and admits it.
GapFiller: Lord_Hosk what abt The Postman then
Fairgrim: paid testing
Lysander_Gustav: :D
PharaohBender27: katesPalm
GapFiller: never change Ubisoft
Fairgrim: test it in production
NightValien28: its ubisoft it cannot be good
s0lesurviv0r: welcome to the lab, guinea pigs.
Lysander_Gustav: Don't pay for beta testers and quality control. Just make people pay for it.
dingdingboom: hiring testers? what a sucker
PharaohBender27: Actually please change, Ubisoft - at least change the abuse stuff
saucemaster5000: Imagine building that waterworld set... twice
LordZarano: That's a job that you pay people to do...
CAKHost: I don't seem to remember there being a Donkey Kong reference in the Mario Brothers Film, but I wouldn't be surprised if I just didn't pick up on it
NightValien28: ubisoft now capitalizing abuse
Lysander_Gustav: I remember beta testers was a thing
Easilycrazyhat: Nice XD
Lysander_Gustav: eugh
s0lesurviv0r: time to watch New Game to see the fantasy of morally responsible game development

Lysander_Gustav: probably money laundering
GapFiller: EvilBadman surely the whole point is that the tendie is all too fungible

floki4242: do thay just pay a hit man
EvilBadman: @GapFiller Don't tell the buyer that
theRomanticPast: are they just gonna eat it?

cuttlefishman: Fall Guys are the beans
RandomTrivia: I believe this comes firmly under the heading of "more money than sense"
Fairgrim: but among us have big silly gloved hands
darkora: I can't imagine spending that much money on a nuggie, like it arrives and you're just like "...Oh I guess that's what I was expecting"
Raiger: What!? Chicken nuggets don't naturally form themselves that way!?
KiaStirling: boot nuggie squad
Mollylele: I guess mcnuggets are the most fungible food when you get down to it
floki4242: some one in a nugget factory got an idea
Skeletonman1100: Toast Jesus. . . I almost forgot about that one.
3and4fifths: Dinos ftw!

RandomTrivia: At least cereal lasts for several years, a Nuggie becomes unpalatable after 38 seconds
KaleidoscopeMind: mcdonalds visor hat
TheMerricat: So I'm assuming this nugget was a Bone that had an Notch taken out.
FITorion: I remember toasters made to create an image of Jesus on toast...
TheThromborax: I once sold a box of Alphabits Cereal on Ebay for $15. I found it in the back of my mom's cupboard. It was unopened and 10 years old. There was a toy inside!
floki4242: yes
RandomTrivia: Oh good grief
josh___something: ewww
Lysander_Gustav: "previously owned"
LurkerSpine: It can't be classified as new per ebay rules, probably
Styxseus: Like, it's been opened
RandomTrivia: Thing is, a big youtuber who eats it for a dumb video will almost certainly make more revenue on that video than they spent on the nuggie
kusinohki: mostly??
Beowulf_Bjornson: only mostly?
chesul: susnugget is an interestingly pleasant thing to say.
GapFiller: and some people who collect wyrd tings have more money than sense
s0lesurviv0r: hired that dude who sealed a hot dog in epoxy or whatever on reddit

josh___something: umm
red_shoes_jeff: Oh no...
Snowcookies: okay
red_shoes_jeff: OH NO...
TheThromborax: "celebrating"
GapFiller: oh right this story
Lysander_Gustav: okay...
GapFiller: this is good
red_shoes_jeff: With you so far...
GapFiller: for a given definition of good
Styxseus: Suuure.. yes..
TehAmelie: the good iterations
TheMerricat: @FITorion BTS is possibly the biggest K-POP sensation that has made it to the West. They are super big with 'the youths'. Seven man, boy?, group.
Lysander_Gustav: oh
Styxseus: XD
TheThromborax: There is no good way to say this
RandomTrivia: FUCK
NotCainNorAbel: jlrrFacepalm
pharniel: Amazing.
PharaohBender27: katesPalm
GapFiller: yeh lets celebrate pride month by beating up a lesbian jlrrFacepalm
TheThromborax: Happy pride, beat up this queer girl
Fairgrim: a punching bag?
josh___something: OH MY GOD
RandomTrivia: Please tell me they at LEAST are trying to go for the kink angle...
LurkerSpine: I think both Ivy and Harley are bi?
saucemaster5000: wow
Lysander_Gustav: someone on the dev-team doesn't like the ship
electric_claire: Beat the everliiving shit out of Harley
DoodlestheGreat: FailFish
pharniel: The DA survivor
pharniel: oh wait, poison ivy, not harley
pharniel: just. oi
josh___something: 🤦♂️
RandomTrivia: benginFacepalm
CAKHost: Ugh
Snowcookies: I have no words
lirazel64: lrrFINE lrrAWW lrrFINE lrrAWW
red_shoes_jeff: Not as bad as I was expecting, STILL pretty bad.
PharaohBender27: Like, *who* thought this was a good idea!?
Styxseus: "We have ONE way for players to interact with characters in this game." I guess? :P
TheMerricat: "“We recognize associating our latest Global Challenge with Pride was insensitive and inappropriate,” the developer said — sporting a rainbow flag Twitter profile photo — in a tweet Thursday. “Real life violence against the LGBTQIA+ community and women within that community in particular is all too common and we should actively engage in efforts to end LGBTQIA+ violence, not normalize it. We apologize to the greater community, but especially LGBTQIA+ members."
TheMerricat: We are committed to listening and doing better..
Easilycrazyhat: This isn't who we are?
TehAmelie: 400,000 seconds is about 111 hours, or three full work werks. assuming you can do one match per second
Styxseus: :D
CAKHost: Are they still doing to do it though? Because that's not much of an apology
Lysander_Gustav: eugh
RandomTrivia: FUCKS SAKE
Easilycrazyhat: Ah, close enough
GapFiller: lrrWOW nalvLUL jlrrFacepalm
TehAmelie: weeks
RandomTrivia: You nailed that delivery
CAKHost: *going to do it
Lysander_Gustav: thoughts and prayers
Snowcookies: Almost in sync
TheMerricat: Warner Bros. has since removed the tweet bragging that players had already defeated Poison Ivy 175,000 times. Messaging for the event remained in-game on Friday morning, advertising the Global Challenge and its rewards, as well as a notification for a free Pride celebration gift — a Champion Bundle with shards used to unlock new characters.
Gnyrinn: "I hope that came across in sync." We'll fix it in post.
Spluuga: They are trying their best, Bront..
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: I assume that's not actually part of the apology, but just the signature from marketing at this point
LurkerSpine: Yeah, so why not have players win 400k fights AS Ivy?
red_shoes_jeff: Really only so many things you can do in a FIGHTING GAME, yes.
NotCainNorAbel: I think all of this shows that they do NOT have LBGTQ+ people on staff that feel safe to say WTF
lirazel64: I'm gonna be committed if anyone writes that again.
BibitteNoire: Why not use the character to win matches be the event???
DeM0nFiRe: Is it not a game where they could have at least done "win matches AS poison ivy" or something?
Styxseus: It makes sense in a sad sort of way
djalternative: It could've been simply winning as harley or Ivy
PharaohBender27: Then have you be able to fight *AS* her - problem solved!
RobotInProgress: @BibitteNoire exactly!
NojhLivic: Ivy and Harley vs Joker and Batman
TehAmelie: by the way i was just reatching Birds of Prey or the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. still great
LurkerSpine: I don't know about the mobile game, but yes, you play as DC characters
TheMerricat: So a _very_ _very_ small defense of their stupidity is that the "Pride" part of this was that the reward was the '4 characters' that are canonically LBGTQ+
Skeletonman1100: Is this Injustice?
EvilBadman: Injustice (the nonmobile version) is DC Mortal Kombat dunno about the mobile one
Makimachine: Injustice is everyone is evil, especially Superman.
NojhLivic: Bad optics
RandomTrivia: It's quite impressive to see an industry simultaneously be up its own ass AND throw itself under buses
Styxseus: DID they try though?
Lysander_Gustav: There are good guys in Injustice, it's just a bit topsy turvy
riktracer: Chillupointuu!
Juliamon: If it's that hard to do, maybe... don't
PMAvers: Get out the rainbow secret lairs.
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: oh, the Cheerios dare LUL
glitched_goddess: Pride Robitussin was great
Makimachine: Yeah, I think actually PI and HQ are one of the not bad ones actually, which just makes things somehow worse. NotLikeThis
Styxseus: :D
TheThromborax: Can we play as Poison Ivy beating up Lindsay Graham?
TheMerricat: Poison was a baddy, Harley is on the good guys side. They broke up
Snowcookies: "in honor of [tragic event] we are having a sale"
Easilycrazyhat: Cause Superman got hangry
Lysander_Gustav: ?!
TehAmelie: or why now get five PS5s?
QuietJay: How many PS5 tshirts?

Sethalidos: Also he offered to donate 25k to charity if the cheerios twitter account tweeted fuck you
Qvdv: a PS5 t-shirt, cause I sure won't be able to get the actual console
Lysander_Gustav: but why though?
Raiger: Can we trade it in for a PS5 at least?
lirazel64: Cheaper than a PS5
kusinohki: so half the cost of a graphics card?
PharaohBender27: katesLol
TheThromborax: WHY
GapFiller: nalvLUL OH SNAP
RandomTrivia: And the fuckers will buy it anyway!
Snowcookies: Why is it so expensive?
TheThromborax: WHY WHY WHY
glitched_goddess: I’d rather have the ps5
Skeletonman1100: Get you som eiron ons and be done.
Fairgrim: hey for a good call back, go look up F1 team merch prices
Lysander_Gustav: idiots with too much money
EvilBadman: "grift" the word you're looking for is "grift"
kusinohki: I wouldn't pay that much for an indestructible shirt...
LordZarano: Conspicuous consumption
Mai_Andra: That's the kind of thing you would see on ebay with the word "t-shirt" hidden. =|
lirazel64: Better than fake support for social causes.
PMAvers: This is a shirt that gets launched out of a cannon
QuietJay: EXCLUSIVE Stuff We All Get
ashesandmochi: rich people willing to throw their money away for the sake of showing off how much money they have
Lord_Hosk: Speaking of great T-shirts...

electric_claire: It's almost a cloyster
Styxseus: I guess they both evolve..?
DeGunner: I mean arn't Tauros stakes a thing in games?
Juliamon: Shellder is like those male fish that attach to a female and wither away to just the reproductive organs
electric_claire: Iirc the thing on slowbro's tail is the original design for cloyster
Lysander_Gustav: or the gengar pillow
TheMerricat: so I'm a bit concerned that a slow poke is a psychic type but a slowbro is a ghost type.... did the shelldar kill the slowpoke?
Juliamon: TheMerricat Slowbro isn't ghost-type though
