GapFiller: RockPusher yeh apparently there were two dfft sources of lively yt comment debate and the 'Transformer' was one of them
PharaohBender27: I remember seeing an Olympic race walk a few Olympics ago, where in the last mile or so the people in first to third places got DQ'd because they got both feet off the ground at once, so the guy who thought he was 4th won
TheMerricat: So I guess the primary difference is: One is done for a medal, the other is done because you are trying to lose weight. :P
beowuuf: @beowuuf wow, i think when my walking fitness is good i can hit like 10 minutes per kilometer over extended distances... sweet lord
Snake__Brine: Just came to wish everyone a great day as I'm gonna go play MC. Have a wonderful stream folks!
TheMerricat: Have a good one @Snake__Brine and watch out for those creepers!
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Or maybe because you prefer to walk fast because walking slowly makes you feel like your legs might atrophy, like me :p
TheMerricat: LOL @PharaohBender27 :)
CastleOtranto: Time to get fursuited... er wait
DoodlestheGreat: @CastleOtranto Sounds good to me! ConcernDoge
beowuuf: yeah, my legs want to go fast even when the body around them (nor their own muscles) aren;t in shape. Stupid legs
GapFiller: for all the slating I'm giving it its honestly nice that in amongst all the neu Olympic sports they can still find space for racewalking
TheMerricat: Last night's stream of Kitsune Udon making really made me wish my kitchen was at a point where i could make 'real' food again. Damn he sold how delicious it was.

violetto: just came in, what's the wild animal on beej's head
RockPusher: The problem with funny news shows - sometimes the news is not funny
DoodlestheGreat: There's nothing about the ActiBlizz story that's funny. Unless Bobby Kotick falls feet first into an industrial shredder.

TheMerricat: I still can't believe the torture appologist was stupid enough to retweet an article about "how bad whistleblowing is" WHILE the company she worked for was being sued...
RockPusher: Gotta love the P&T approach though - calling something fraud is slander - repeatedly calling it bullshit in a humourous manner, that's satire and protected katesShrug
saiarcot895: pretty sure she was solidly disconnected from reality
saiarcot895: and how normal people feel
RockPusher: Time Shed!
GapFiller: TheMerricat chutzpah is not always a good idea eh
RockPusher: Three lrrHAM s will surely thrill him!
RockPusher: Rotten apples and whatnot
RockPusher: HR exists to prevent these sorts of lawsuits so, performance not up to the expected standard…
Orgmastron: A friendly reminder that HR is there to protect the company, not the employees
PharaohBender27: Reminder: HR does not work for the workers. It works for management.
PharaohBender27: Dangit, beat me to it @Orgmastron :D
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 its worth repeating
TheMerricat: The head of HR leaving was a foregone conclusion once this lawsuit was announced. Their entire purpose in life was to ensure that this sort of lawsuit never happened.
Orgmastron: We all had very similar thoughts
TheMerricat: By hook or crook.
jessieimproved: It gives you the ability to get another job before the shit goes down
GapFiller: in fact its worth saying three times so once again for the people up top: HR is there to protect the company not the workforce
beowuuf: says it in the name... humans are resources.
RockPusher: Investors quite rightly observing that being sued by the government is bad for business
GapFiller: 'but if we told you yr wdnt have invested!'
RockPusher: tqsStonks_HF tqsStonks_HF tqsStonks_HF
TheMerricat: As someone who worked in HRIS, let me refine @GapFiller 's statement slightly. HR does help employees, but their ultimate goal is to ensure the smooth function of the company and if that means letting you go rather than helping you, prepare to be axed.
GapFiller: the sad part is somebody somewhere WOULD use that excuse
saiarcot895: in this one case, the investors, workforce, and general public are on one side
saiarcot895: they have no standing to sue (for harrassment)
RockPusher: You need that stereotypical cranky old sole trader who domineers AGMs railing about some thing or another to get a bee in the bonnet about it
TheMerricat: The vast majority of investors in something like AB are hedgefunds and other 'corpo' type entitles, the actual money may be individual people who care about this story, but the actual decision makers are folk who 100% only care about the money.
Orgmastron: ^
PharaohBender27: katesLol
GapFiller: nalvLUL that was totally intentional wasnt it Paul
TheMerricat: I just realized it's been over a decade since Activision purchased Blizzard, damn.
GapFiller: doesnt the time just fly eh
dougma: They dont spell out what the investigation is about when they fear retaliation against victums
xantos69: They knew. A government agency doesn't just show up on your doorstep randomly. When they do show up they will ask to see certain types of files and documents. The things they are asking for should be an immediate disclosure of what they are looking for.
TheMerricat: @dougma even if they didn't they aren't going to tell you why they are investigating period because that could help you 'hide' shit from them. That's SOP for any investigative agency.
AtomicAlchemical: At that point, you're criticizing capitalism (which is also valid)
Gnyrinn: The mission of a publicly traded company is to generate value for the shareholders in any way which is not explicitly forbidden by enforced law.
RockPusher: Tugger Nutts an the Reluctance to Disclose
RockPusher: *and
pyronils80: Hello and good evening! :) :) :)
aerohydra: @RockPusher id read it
xantos69: Well now I miss QWERPline alot.
TheMerricat: @xantos69 AB 100% probably knew what sort of investigation was going on, they almost 100% also didn't realize how big a mess the agency had discovered. As much as we are bagging on corpo AB and their HR folk if they knew shit was this bad, they would have been trying to clean it up before the government swung the axe. pure CYA instinct there
TheMerricat: That's the problem with this sort of bureaucracy, they were so inured with the shit that was going on they didn't get how bad they were letting it become.
xantos69: @xantos69 Honestly I would put my money on their HR knew exactly how big a deal it was. They probably even took it forward to leadership who then did nothing. Doing nothing always feels easier and it happens CONSTANTLY in the corporate world.

DeM0nFiRe: @TheMerricat This is the thing that is most surprising to me, I always thought they were gonna use tencent as like cultural outreach/influence stuff internationally, I didn't think they would put them down like this
saiarcot895: the chinese government will go after one of its own companies if it feels that it puts some policy/idea of theirs at risk

RandomTrivia: lrrWOW
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
saiarcot895: LUL
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe I suspect that one issue here is that the senior members of the Chinese Communist Party are older, and this whole "video game" thing is still somewhat foreign to them
bytecaster: Does your child need to git gud
RockPusher: Little Timmy has been lootboxing behind the bikesheds
LordZarano: China specifically presumably has very strong feelings about opium, related to history
Lithobraker: is your child a casul scurb?
PharaohBender27: @LordZarano Oh right
AtomicAlchemical: @LordZarano Oof, and yeah....
Japolai: didn't tencent put in the face recognition thing to not let children play games at night?
LurkerSpine: I wonder if that's a game you can have open and ignore too
Decaped: A lot of Chinese media is very focused on reverence for Chinese history, so calling something spiritual opium, points to it being an foreign harmful invasion, yeah.
GapFiller: Decaped the official version of the history obv
TheMerricat: @Japolai yes they did. it's fairly obvious that there is some faction of the Chinese government that is currently going through a moral panic over video games and won't be satisfied by anything Tencent does.
PharaohBender27: "How can we build a workers' paradise if our youth fritter away their days with these games!?"
RockPusher: GapFiller I mean, even the winners of that particular bit of history are all "oh, yeah, we totally opiumed up the place"
RockPusher: tqsStonks_HF tqsStonks_HF tqsStonks_HF

LurkerSpine: Not a lot of companies are as BIG as tencent though
jacobsh97: That's 533.23B Norwegian Krone
GapFiller: just look at what happend w/ Jack Ma
GapFiller: thye have that power
TheMerricat: Tencent is one of those companies that is heavily owned by "Chinese government" interests. It's highly likely that a lot of them thought they saw the way the wind was blowing and exited the building to be safe.

Zsuper1999: what about shoots an latters?
LurkerSpine: hungry hungry warios
PixelArtDragon: But is it shoots and ladders or snakes and ladders?
TheMerricat: So I know we've moved on but since I looked, I think what Beej was recalling - if it was recent - was China's crackdown on the education sector. They decided that it had been taken over by 'Caplitalism' so they announced a policy that education related companies are forbidden to make a profit. That tanked a huge number of companies that had foreign investments and happened mid-July.

TheMerricat: @DeM0nFiRe First sale rights would allow you to buy a controller and sell it with a skin, but it wouldn't allow you to contract with a company to make 'Mc Donald' controllers since making controllers would likely require patent licenses that Sony could say no to.
SurfDownstage: I mean, if the deal fell through, you guys should just buy these
LordZarano: M for Microsoft, right?
josh___something: I think switch the white to the background gray, and that's a checkpoint controller :p
frogomb: And now McDonalds gets more free advertising instead
mitomanox: <3
GapFiller: this is just like the Mario Olympic opening ceremony stuff isnt it
DeM0nFiRe: Maybe it's like Mcdonald's monopoly and all the controllers went to their families LUL
GapFiller: its in cold storage somewhere
PixelArtDragon: Three shells?
DeM0nFiRe: Fun fact, you can buy Gameboy Color shells that have that Jazz pattern from the 90s
saiarcot895: shells? meaning the plastic covers over the controller, excluding the buttons?
PixelArtDragon: @dem0nfire The Dixie Cup pattern?
Juliamon: yeah, no internals
GapFiller: DeM0nFiRe this one?
DeM0nFiRe: @saiarcot895 Shell refers to the plastic body of a controller or console or whatever yeah
TheMerricat: @saiarcot895 two ways to customize this sort of device, use a vinyl wrap like Beej just said, or actually buy a new plastic shell for the innards and replace the original plastic with it.
DeM0nFiRe: I just refreshed my stream accidentally but whoever linked the Wikipedia to the Jazz pattern, yeah it's that one
LathosTiran: BK had entire games made for them
LurkerSpine: sneak king was kinda hilarious for a half hour, and I think that's fine
GapFiller: okay just image searched GBC Jazz but cant tell if any of the results are authentic or if theyre all just retro vapourwave photoshops
DeM0nFiRe: lmao
PixelArtDragon: Have it your* way (*provided your way is one of the following)
DeM0nFiRe: Oh I guess it's not gameboy color it's regular gameboy
Saxpython: Does Activision/Blizzard need to raise money that badly?

cryomancer20x6: I am still deep into SecondLife 12 years on and I want to say that this is a HUGE thing for SL. Gachas are a very important part of the way businesses market things
twistedlock23: eve is fun if you aren't poor
GapFiller: my only takewaya from this story was it gave Beej an excuse to use the phrase 'Munch' innan official LRR video
TheMerricat: BTW Beej the whole deal with Second Life is that you can program almost anything in it. So there is no Linden Labs turning shit off, everyone who made their own gatcha machine type deal made their own program to do it.
twistedlock23: or have friends who are very rich
Decaped: Things that China and Second life have in common.
PharaohBender27: 2flower made a comment about how this change will almost definitely screw things up
GapFiller: and ofc we are all v interested in hearing Beej talk abt Munching
kusinohki: I just want to battle the 2nd life ai in Hanafuna...
Sadistic_Fire: Basically everything in user created and sold. Or at least, user uploaded.
RockPusher: Second Life gave us interrupting press conferences with flying penises, so we'll always have that
TheMerricat: Yeah I was waiting for Beej to explain what a munch is to Graham, that'd have been hilarious :D
cryomancer20x6: Many gachas in SL are also ways to give away old products for free, but get people in the store
GapFiller: the pillow talk
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat So what *is* Munch?
LordZarano: The between talk
RockPusher: The post-trailer talk show
Saxpython: The All Done?
TheMerricat: @TheMerricat Munchs are informal meetings for BDSM clubs, like you get together for a vanilla lunch at BurgerKing or something :)
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 (nsfw)
Juliamon: As I mentioned in the comments, I'm surprised gachas were even ALLOWED since they banned gambling in 2007
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat @GapFiller Huh. Thanks - TIL
cryomancer20x6: @Juliamon Most gachas in SL are free or extremely cheap, so they don't bother
kusinohki: Iheard "got ya" mechanics...
josh___something: @kusinohki Same diff? Kappa
TheMerricat: "The word gacha is derived from "gachapon", Japanese vending machines that dispense plastic capsules containing toys, which are still hugely popular in Japan today. Gachapon is the satisfying sound the machine makes when a player spins a gacha and receives a toy." is the official story but "Gotcha" is a good alternative.
ritchards: Surprise Mechanics!

kusinohki: I prefer Heather's world.... can I move there?
Saxpython: that's a great quote
Juliamon: The SL story got me real nostalgic though, anyway. I miss the casinos.
TheMerricat: @DeM0nFiRe is a URL but you need a login for it so....
incslayer: maybe its just one person: Overpowered crypto Berserker
RandomTrivia: LUL
Sadistic_Fire: @DeM0nFiRe Yes, but there's a fee. You sell it to other users, this is primarily how the economy circulates and buy more. Linden takes the fee for themselves, both on the sell and buy.
Drasvin: Yeah. People make a living on SL
Saxpython: Gotta watch out for Spyder and Terpsicore
SK__Ren: "Love you like a truck" Berserker?
Wiliart: BerSIRker is my dad, I'm Berboyker.
MagicalAttackGecko: oh no they didnt....
beowuuf: @SK__Ren Mr Berzerker, I put it to you that you like be making fornication, is this true?
psuedoe: like al capone and taxes
couldntpickausername: you also have to avoid admitting it's pay to win if cheat engines cost you money
TheMerricat: See chat, Valve is actually doing the industry a favor by not going after bots in TF2, this way other companies can point to TF2 and say "See if your playerbase cheats, people stop playing the game and you lose money!".
GapFiller: TheMerricat nalvLUL

LordZarano: Minecraft cheats are very interesting, since there are servers that specifically allow them
DeM0nFiRe: Combat Arms was a fun game that had a super bad problem with hackers. Rather than fix the hacking issue, Nexon just sold an item you could use to kick hackers from your game :|
psuedoe: is it cheating if it's server valid tho?
TheMerricat: Additionally Minecraft cheats don't impact Microsoft in any way. Servers are hosted by third parties.
Drasvin: Speedruns are still competitive. So cheating in speedruns impacts other players.
TheMerricat: @DeM0nFiRe That sounds.... so Nexon.
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah very Nexon
Styxseus: Well, its about selling them aswell, right?
DeM0nFiRe: Even more Nexon is that eventually there was hacks to prevent the paid item from actually kicking the hacker, and then Nexon addressed THAT hack but not any of the others
Saxpython: What is Cheating,
DeM0nFiRe: And the game was literally unplayable due to the hacks, like hacker could set off infinite explosions in the whole map at once, or instantly headshot every single player in the map from their spawn
MungoDude: then there's the rockstar games where legit players sometimes need to use exploits to create a solo public lobby to avoid getting griefed by people using mod menus

psuedoe: he says "Cortana" a whole bunch
incslayer: i mean he doesnt talk a lot but he does talk
Always_Armoured: hes always had a voice, he just only talked during cutscenes until recently
ZawaAmaz: what if there was a consumer protection law to protect consumers from cheaters in online multiplayer only, thus legally empowering companies to go after cheaterson behalf of their users without potentially hurting modding communities
Drasvin: He talks a lot in cutscenes.
GapFiller: he has lines in the Halo 2 trailer
GapFiller: well 1 line
PharaohBender27: @Zephyr256k I guess I just forgot because it's been like 16 years since I played that :p
