Juliamon: silver
KakuEpsilon: Gray, Silver, same colour
Juliamon: it's made of actual elemental silver
Juliamon: can you prove it's not? you can't
KakuEpsilon: As long as it's not Collodial Silver
beowuuf: congrats on being recognised for being around for a while rather than being kicked :p
Metric_Furlong: good old Ag 47
KakuEpsilon: Thank, I've been paying them only a fraction as long as I've been following them.
KakuEpsilon: *screams in from the Escapist days*
Metric_Furlong: ah, a fellow person from Prehistory
KakuEpsilon: yeah, pretty much
GapFiller: lets be real here it was only ten yrs ago
Juliamon: (I apologize if I'm a little punchy today, excited for something later today)
GapFiller: yes thats a not insignificant amount of time
KakuEpsilon: Are you sure? It feels like it's been more like 20
Metric_Furlong: GapFiller 15
GapFiller: but lets be relative here
beowuuf: I'm a strip search baby, though to be fair i did watch them on scapist, just didn't know i was (unskippable) :p
Metric_Furlong: Unskippable debuted in 2006
Metric_Furlong: iirc
Metric_Furlong: (the pilot episode, anyway)
GapFiller: point being ten years is less lengthy than it looks
KakuEpsilon: I started watching LRR when the first sketch was posted to the Escapist, because Yahtzee was contractually obligated to mention them.
GapFiller: ditto 20 yrs frankly
Juliamon: My LRR fandom outlived my job
KakuEpsilon: I mean, 20 years isn't that long in the terms of history, but it's also the bulk of my sentience.
Metric_Furlong: hell, by geological time-scales it's less than a rounding error
Juliamon: by geological time-scales, we were never even fans
GapFiller: speaking of relativity the ActiBlizz story is bringing back memories of the brief summer 15 odd yrs ago in which yrs truly played WoW
beowuuf: oh no :(
GapFiller: at least it was just a summer romance in my case
Metric_Furlong: you're not a real LRR fan unless you've been following them since at least the permian mass extinction event Kappa
KakuEpsilon: @Juliamon ... I mean, by Geological time-scales, they've also never existed. It's a very silly time scale to care about
GapFiller: gotta feel for those people who have a relationship there that spans the entire 15 yrs
KakuEpsilon: @Metric_Furlong Isn't that this year?
GapFiller: KakuEpsilon nah this yr is The Anthropocene
Metric_Furlong: KakuEpsilon not unless my calendar is off by about 250 million years
KakuEpsilon: I mean, calenders didn't exist that long
KakuEpsilon: Colanders, on the other hand.
Juliamon: That's how I feel whenever I glance at a Jewish calendar by accident
GapFiller: the Minute Hand the Millennium Hand and the Aeon Hand
beowuuf: the stealth holding dates joke, nice sergeJustRight
RockPusher: !findbutts
LRRbot: Above you?!
Metric_Furlong: and when they meet it's happy land

beowuuf: this song has just such nice chilling at the end of something vibes to
lirazel64: Good evening. The heat is finally breaking here.

GapFiller: *zeitgeist even
LunarJade: hiiiiii!
KakuEpsilon: @Juliamon That's also my gimmick

SweedChef: Anyone playing Psychonauts 2? It is such a pretty game when you take the time to look
RockPusher sits back down with a fresh bowl of cereal
RockPusher: ChillPoint is my Saturday Morning Cartoons :D
Juliamon: I'm hoping someone on LRR PiFs it
beowuuf: oh no, beej was struck off the rolls for making up quotes - which was an amazing segment and he suckered me so hard I actually had to pause the video at the reveal

SweedChef: So is re-remix a thing?
RockPusher: the (pH Balanced edit)
lirazel64: It's the Remix Prequel Sequel!
SweedChef: or is it redundant?
beowuuf: adam does not switch sides, the fact he has both loved and hated DD in the space of 5 minutes right now is neither here or there
Angnor33: Randomizers
Joalni: Remake
aitsu100: remaster
Juliamon: Definitive, Remastered

fiftymcnasty: What about Re:coded
JohnAnyteller: @fiftymcnasty very anime
CrazymattCaptain: yeah the changes to cafe mix are meant to make BIG changes to the meta of the game

Dromos_GHG: hi
beowuuf: beej has moved to rhythm cafe, due to houses of lies
Alchemistmerlin: Top Secret Beej-ness
PixelArtDragon: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always just dead here.
PharaohBender27: Something tells me we'll find out what those secret things are tomorrow
GapFiller: see yr dont need Beej to go off on tangents before even introducing the episode
eltwitcherino: nobody knows where he may be...ej
Alex_Frostfire: benginHi
DiamondMX: pretty sure Paul and Heather are now both Beej.
kusinohki: mobile home of lies
PixelArtDragon: But can you repossess a house of lies?
RandomTrivia: Hi friends! lrrHEART
Metric_Furlong: some of those lies are load-bearing
Juliamon: !addquote (Heather) [now] They're very heavy lies, Paul. They're not meant for taking.
LRRbot: New quote #7748: "They're very heavy lies, Paul. They're not meant for taking." —Heather [2021-08-27]
beowuuf: beej streams with ian on thursday, then records checkpoint and lies directly to us. co-incidence?
GapFiller: what yr saying Heather is that Beej threw out his back trying to steal the House of Lies
Lysander_Gustav: Hello folks!
Drasvin: Then you just steal the doors to the House of Lies to prevent people from going into it
beowuuf: sergeHi randomtrivia
Laserbeaks_Fury: What about Mobile Home of Inaccuracy
beowuuf: @Drasvin if james helped build the house of lies it will have no doors
PixelArtDragon: I was genuinely under the impression that the Fortnite Secret Lair was an eleborate prank because I missed that part of the announcement
PharaohBender27: Ooof, speaking of moves, I've finished the second week of helping move the collections that the research library where I work back into the renovated space, and my hands are sore from being in the "grab stuff" position :p
Alex_Frostfire: Unfortunately it was real.
BrookJustBones: Math is for blockers
beowuuf: chun li has multi-kicker, that is *all* you need to know :p
RandomTrivia: FoMO DLC. They're FoMO DLC
RandomTrivia: Call them what they are
RockPusher: Some of the Secret Lairs are *very* pretty
Juliamon: I have one Secret Lair, and it is very pretty
Metric_Furlong: Street Fighter collab, what, are they ripping-off Shadowverse now? Kappa
TheMerricat: so to be clear these are cards that were existing magic cards but they've given them themed art and maybe different words that mean the exact same thing as the original card?
Drasvin: So, MtG is getting some Fortnite skins
JohnAnyteller: I don't like the idea...but I love Street Fighter so much
Juliamon: Correct, TheMerricat
Alex_Frostfire: I must admit that chromatic Ur-Dragon looked nice to me.
RandomTrivia: HASCON promos
RandomTrivia: They did an MLP crossover, they've done a bunch
cabforpitt: the street fighter ones are new cards
PixelArtDragon: Haha... unless?
BlueMechanic: I'm surprised we didn't get a character from Magic the Gathering as a skin in Fortnite first
Creideiki_SE: Ponies: The Galloping. Only available in North America :(
beowuuf: @TheMerricat about 99%, yes. There is a universes beyond thing they have started to do where they get to cross with other properties. They did one for walking dead that was a secret lair, and it was mechanically new cards. Not popular, and they have promised any mechanically new cards wikll get magic card reprints at some point afterwards (I believe)
RandomTrivia: They are there to look cool
LurkerSpine: not tournament legal
AveryCorvus: They did the thing where they do a thing that people warn is a slippery slope, and people are like "Stop with the slippery slope arguments" but then Hasbro dived down the slope
PixelArtDragon: I think it's less weird when it's all Hasbro properties, it feels less like a sell-out then
BlueMechanic: Yule Ooze was one of them
Robot_Bones: Fruit cake Golem
Alex_Frostfire: Bog Humbugs

CaptainSpam: I recall one holiday card that was a snow globe that was activated by tapping, then untapping, then tapping, etc a few times, as if you were shaking the snow globe.
3and4fifths: naughty//nice
Metric_Furlong: famous story about magic, the walking dead
EvilBadman: Functional reprint
RockPusher: Alternate card names
beowuuf: walking dead sort of was more putting mechanically new (good) cards in secret lair, and also making them not magic cards. So it hit two sore points at once.
RandomTrivia: The issue with the Walking Dead cards was that they are functionally unique, albeit with the promise that in-universe reprints will follow at SomE pOiNt
JohnAnyteller: and that Rick was just so obscenely good
AveryCorvus: I think the tipping point wasn't The Walking Dead--it was the fact that it simultaneously had a huge backlash and also produced record profits for a secret lair. That told Wizards to A) Ignore all fan feedback and B) Make more alternate worlds stuff
RandomTrivia: The were also only legal in Legacy and Vintage, powerful formats full of old cards
JohnAnyteller: And commander
beowuuf: maro said something about in future things following in six months? Not sure if that means they are going to use a 'list' style solution to release mechanical versions where it otherwise wouldn't make sense/
RandomTrivia: The Fortnite cards will be like the Godzilla cards, new-art reprints of existing cards
EvilBadman: i would not be surprised if we see Chandra/Jace skins this year
PixelArtDragon: An LRL segment?
RandomTrivia makes a note for DesertBus
LurkerSpine: Fortnite and MLK... *sigh*
RockPusher: That sounds like the makings of a this or that
BlueMechanic: Fortnite does not have the Danone monkey, that was Sonic
TheMerricat: The only downside to that game is that there's only two correct answers Yes and not yet
beowuuf: It's quite funny but very fortunate that the godzilla tie in came along for wotc when it did, so it let them put the godzilla names on cards that were basically already inspired by those properties
Dromos_GHG: Fortnite or FortNot
kusinohki: will we see this on sat's live?
beowuuf: the adverts before sounds .... like a thing...
RockPusher: Assuming it is being done with good intentions then even with the problems I'd call it a net good
samwonk: One can imagine that it was well-intentioned.
LurkerSpine: I've seen one stream of it. They did a good job of emulating the feel of the national mall, but it's incredibly tacky and in poor taste.
verzegcaio: the Martin Luther King memorial was a miss hit
RockPusher: as was said in the post-credits, you sometimes have to go to where the people are
cabforpitt: if it's tasteful I'm fine with it but that's a fat if
RandomTrivia: That's probably not historically accurate
RandomTrivia: lrrBEEJ
LurkerSpine: One of the puzzles in the MLK event has a countdown timer attached to a bomb-like object
EvilBadman: They turned off emotes in the exhibit this morning which was a weird oversight
RandomTrivia: I imagine that Epic brought more money than the movies had combined
samwonk: Having now seen it, it's not... good. It's kind of like a MLK-themed carnival bouncy-house.
saiarcot895: @EvilBadman oof
Makimachine: it does feel a bit performative.
josh___something: Fortnite, the game popularized by their battle royale mode is not the right medium for this... at least not at this point in Epic's vision for fortnitr
RockPusher: Excellent idea… shaky praxis
PharaohBender27: @samwonk Ooof
misteline: I think shoe horning things in where they don't belong to try to make teens care just creates backlash.
josh___something: If/when epic get to the point where fortnite is now popularly known as a Metaverse, this wouldn't be as weird as it is RIGHT NOW
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
RockPusher: Heather is the Janet equivalent in The LRR Place
RandomTrivia: LUL
EvilBadman: @RockPusher Serge was canonically from the DB sketch :P
RandomTrivia: At some point we do have to acknowledge the good thing, even if it was motivated by corporate nonsense and bad things
RandomTrivia: That also doesn't mean we have to forget the motivating bad things
AveryCorvus: In light of the gaming companies in the last few weeks, I am very grateful for a company capable of being morally gray enough to 'virtue signal' even if it's just signalling
RockPusher: EvilBadman That's The Bus Place - it's rather less pleasantly malevolent than The LRR Place lrrBEEJ
josh___something: There's a miniscule percentage chamce that this could go horribly wrong if people get rowdy
beowuuf: besides, paul was busy writing his retraction after the thanos snafu :p
Earthenone: the thanos Snap-fu :)
RandomTrivia: LUL
saiarcot895: paul's not wrong lol
kusinohki: you're wrong! (what are we talking about?)
RockPusher: It's fun
Nigouki: that Thanos is hilarious
EvilBadman: Thanos literally says "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be"
m_logan2000: When Thanos snapped was there a 50% chance he disappeared?
beowuuf: speaking of times i had to pause a video :p
Wolfstrike_NL: Episode 2 was fun indeed :)
saucemaster5000: that was my favorite thing from "what if?" so far
TheMerricat: @saucemaster5000 I don't know if this helps or not but apparently according to Google they have had weddings in Chuck e cheese's
LurkerSpine: Well, his entire reason for killing everyone is to get laid
LurkerSpine: in the comic
hurricanealpaca: Ultron?
josh___something: Comics thanos really wanted to impress the grim reaper or smth
saucemaster5000: @TheMerricat it does, but I still have question
KV1NN4: i dunno why i thgouth Kamek was a lady this whole time
Makimachine: @josh___something Lady Death.
Loonatic93: I think he was introduced in SM3.
LurkerSpine: This story was confusing to me, as I always called that Magikoopa, and didn't realize there was like, a unique Magikoopa?
beowuuf: @josh___something he literally wanted to court death :p
Juliamon: Magikoopas were a thing before Yoshi's Island, but Kamek specifically is from there
EvilBadman: ^this
TheMerricat: I thought they were saying Comic :D
josh___something: Kamek is on a low rung on the corporate ladder in Bowser's heirarchy
cabforpitt: he's pretty funny in the origami king
saiarcot895: @TheMerricat that's what i thought as well lol
beowuuf: magikoopas sounds like a place all the 18 - 30s go to for their holidays
Juliamon: Kamek desperately wants to be a good flunky
ButButTheJesus: it me, am kamek
LurkerSpine: It's better than Lemmy watching Bowser Jr.
josh___something: I didn't know kamek had a defined gender for the longest time
pyronils80: Hello and good evening! :) :) :)
KakuEpsilon: I always get confused if Kamek has just always been Bowser's guardian, so basically, is both Grandfather or just has a job.
Decaped: FFXIV is rad
josh___something: mobile racing games are not out of the ordinary
Ignatiuspants: the only thing I know about the mobile Mario Kart comes from that one LRR video with Kathleen in Vancouver
Robot_Bones: The Critally Acclaimed MMORPG?
Alex_Frostfire: I'm caught up on the story stuff, so I'm on hiatus until the expansion.
VoodontWoW: Cat husbando reporting for duty.
PixelArtDragon: I hear it's critically acclaimed and is free until lvl 60 including the critically acclaimed first expansion, Heavansward.
RockPusher: All fibre maxed out
Mai_Andra: I'm unnecessarily happy Graham got the meme in. xivCactuar
EvilBadman: "Why don't they just X" is never as easy as you would like to propose it to be
GapFiller: nalvThink theres prob OG CP+ covering the collapse of the original FF14
Decaped: Soon to be featuring New World
Juliamon: It should have died. And yet now it's thriving.
PixelArtDragon: Servers are EXPENSIVE. Like, tens of thousands of dollars per unit expensive.
Alex_Frostfire: Someone slotted Auto Phoenix.
Mai_Andra: Yes, Checkpoint did on story on how the FFXIV launch was so rough, they decided to make it a different game instead.
lock3dinabox: I played in the beta. It was bad. I just started playing it again this year and it's a completely different game
josh___something: the typical answer to "why not just X" is usually "We can't, cause there's a lot more going on here than a simple fix like that"
cuttlefishman: And they incorporated these troubled times into the lore
cuttlefishman: Somehow
VoodontWoW: There is an unofficial LRR fan guild on Siren, one of the effected servers.
TheMerricat: it's weird how hard square fought for this given how easily they give up on regular game franchises
RockPusher: The question is what conversion rate they get from the current freebie
GapFiller: yeh bit of a purple patch for Square here
PixelArtDragon: GEE, I wonder what might cause people to want to leave WoW.
GapFiller: perefect storm of good fortune proving a little too good
josh___something: Specifically not steam, from the tweets
Decaped: The fun thing about talking about FFXIV is that you are at the same time talking about every other Final Fantasy game
Mai_Andra: The expansion releasing in November is actually the big conclusion to the main story they started in 1.0.
PixelArtDragon: You're TOO good at tempting people
cuttlefishman: But it's MeatLovers Heather
cuttlefishman: so delicious
Alex_Frostfire: I keep calling it Endbringer.
VoodontWoW: Join ussss... When space allowsssss...
empyreon: are they revising from unavailable to available?
TheMerricat: Beej was too cowardly to face us over this story :D KappaPride
PixelArtDragon: @VoodontWoW That's even funnier coming from someone with WoW in their username
RandomTrivia: That story was great
Styxseus: Pfff :D
jarnatan subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 14 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, jarnatan! (Today's storm count: 8)
samwonk: Or the one punchy patchnote to get the social media traction.
RandomTrivia: The new grip on the head was also quite believable
VoodontWoW: I wondr why I'm on an indefinite WoW hiatus for now.
RandomTrivia: The recursion was a nice touch
beowuuf: the quote part was sergeJustRight
PixelArtDragon: @Ignatiuspants 5 at once, eh?
MagicalAttackGecko: Beejception
cuttlefishman: Nobody puts Beej into the corner (except Paul)
PharaohBender27: To fully experience lrrBEEEJ , if you will
jarnatan: Beejdrops are a thing even in Checkpoint
RockPusher: Ian "Self Demonstrating" Horner
cuttlefishman: How many of the Ian times have been Gundam related?
PixelArtDragon: The Gundam one because of Hyrule Warriors
Mai_Andra: and now it's gone...
TheMerricat: AB sucks but in good news chat McCree is getting renamed!
PixelArtDragon: Ack-bleh
RockPusher: I mean, the expansion to workers from employees is good news
Alex_Frostfire: Active Blunder.
MagicalAttackGecko: Asstivision
PharaohBender27: AcBli - that way it's short *and* sounds as unpleasant as it is
LurkerSpine: BlizzAct
EvilBadman: Assivission-Blizhole
beowuuf: act to bliz
GapFiller: Ben Affleck
TotallyNotaBeholder: Aflac?
lirazel64: Lackavision.
Mai_Andra: ActiDeezNutz! (gottem xivMorbol )
nymistrya: ActBliholes
RandomTrivia: lrrWOW
saiarcot895: gotta give them a graphics designer
asddsa28: to be fair alot of USA goverment logos suck
PharaohBender27: US Government agencies aren't known for their logo designs :p
GapFiller: nalvHi Me! nalvHi Me!
GapFiller: been there done that
jarnatan: I mean its like what Graham talked about in his recent paralympics logos video: Those logos are designed by committe and thus usually suck
LurkerSpine: As someone who's on more on the maintenance end of code instead of development, the devaluation of maintenance, QA, and test in software is kinda insane to me
PixelArtDragon: "impartial" that we're paying
PixelArtDragon: "They're fuckers"
LurkerSpine: At least the NDAs that have been signed are probably unenforceable
beowuuf: we only destroyed the ones we didn't think you'd want to read
RandomTrivia: "Oh No, wE bUrNeD ThEm"
ritchards: "law" firm
Styxseus: Oh boy.
hurricanealpaca: so sad...and not surprising at all
ritchards: although presumably, the people could just tell all this again?
RandomTrivia: It certainly was a good try
misteline: lawyer here. not how that works
DeM0nFiRe: Wow I didnt hear that part, god damn blizzactivision sucks
PixelArtDragon: Don't you have to do things to make them *your* lawyer SPECIFICALLY for these sorts of things?
josh___something: "good try" well... lukewarm try at best
PharaohBender27: @DeM0nFiRe They also outright shredded stuff
LurkerSpine: Yeah, they'll have even less success than the person suing Nirvana
Pangogie: Interesting... My Twitch seems to be in Norwegian.
PixelArtDragon: @Pangogie Buy bits with Kroner!
Pangogie: Jeg har ikke kroner.
Styxseus: Cool Blizzard :P They sure are "working on" this problem in SOME ways huh
saiarcot895: "some ink on some paper"
beowuuf: we think you don't want to read thigns that are horrific, so we kept the puppy pictures and shredded the rest
josh___something: I wonder why they're jumping through ALL THESE FUCKING HOOPS
bytecaster: I mean, who would shred something that is important, that is just crazy talk
Styxseus: :D
beowuuf: delete the files, then shred the hard drive :p
misteline: @pixelartdragon yes. they can't force privilege based confidentiality on someone they aren't representing. If they made them sign stuff that's a different thing.
PharaohBender27: You'd be surprised how much paperwork there still is
Styxseus: Oh god.
RandomTrivia: Oh christ
samwonk: What.
ritchards: cH had a joke where the PS5 was in the computer that Alex and Cam wanted to use
PharaohBender27: Yep, I've heard of bosses like that
GapFiller: so much for the paperless office
hurricanealpaca: if my job asked me to do that, I'd walk out
PixelArtDragon: @misteline I have a sinking feeling that the people were given things to sign without realizing that it would do that.
beowuuf: wait, attorney client privilege is to do with the attorneys not being compelled to testify, not the clients...
empyreon: TEN meters? In THIS economy?!
misteline: @pixelartdragon I agree. but there's other issues with that. depends on what they told them.
Japolai: I think Graham and Ben did it in Vegas in one of the gvlogs
LurkerSpine: I would love to get an Oculus if not for the facebook bullsh*t
TheMerricat: @beowuuf The clients have an NDA the lawyers have attorney privilege in theory doesn't really work if it's covering up a crime
misteline: @beowuuf they're trying to say the docs related to the communication are priv. which is possible, but unlikely here.
RandomTrivia: LUL
kusinohki: need the denna coil glasses where everything is overlayed on top of the real world
ritchards: ah, the Ian view...
PharaohBender27: Oh, so he pulled an lrrIAN Kappa
PixelArtDragon: He pulled an Ian!
RandomTrivia: The Horner strat

RandomTrivia: Heck, you made fun of him in the Highlight Reel
PharaohBender27: ^
KaleidoscopeMind: It's an exercise stream
TheMerricat: novelties
BrowneePoints: half life alyx is the only one
misteline: @beowuuf yes. by tying the employees up in red tape they can buy breathing room and price the employees out of personal civil litigation.
PixelArtDragon: Something that actually /needs/ VR to work
LordZarano: My sister has foam tiles on the floor for her VR area
LurkerSpine: beat saber
GapFiller: scrolling the wiki for the specific stream having forgotten the game
GapFiller: anyone remember it?
PharaohBender27: katesLol
saiarcot895: we're inedible!

TheMerricat: New Saints Row chat Woo Hoo! but Idol Ninja passed too :(
LordZarano: PJSalt
LurkerSpine: are they still mistreating workers? because I bet they are
RockPusher: Oh no, the Beej is on the loose!
BrowneePoints: @tuxbeej Troll Ala King with a Salt Marinade
PharaohBender27: @LurkerSpine Oh I'm sure they are, but just in the more mundane, technically legal way
PixelArtDragon: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always afraid.
jarnatan: The Secrret Beej Chores sounds like a pitch or a cHustle
ForOhForError: good for not having to use the voice chat, I've heard
Drasvin: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: attack mode socks
GapFiller: Daddeh!
RandomTrivia: BEEJ NO
DeM0nFiRe: lrrBEEEJ
KV1NN4: beej
Zappeljakob: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a family stream.
PixelArtDragon: HAWT I mean no! Bad!
beowuuf: we.... missed you?
lirazel64: A wild Beej appears...
A1_Saucy: as someone that is visually impaired to a degree, nothing is more annoying than someone saying, "it's over there"
RandomTrivia: We... handled it
Alex_Frostfire: Nice and... no. Not saying it.
hurricanealpaca: but they are locked behind microtransactions?
Zappeljakob: Go on Beej....
PixelArtDragon: This is not so uncommon for certain parts of tech, actually
lirazel64: @alex_frostfire Thank you.
BrowneePoints: Hollow Knight is one of the best games of the past decade
DeM0nFiRe: It's not super uncommon to be fair, AAA developers releasing papers detailing some of their neat tech is fairly common, through granted it's not often full source implementation they keep updated
Creideiki_SE: Some of that ends up as GDC talks.
PixelArtDragon: I think it's very bad that there aren't really any properly AAA-tested game engines that are open-source
trilemma85: Can we go racing on the moon?
BrowneePoints: Chat, if you haven't, play Hollow Knight, and realize it was made by 3 people
Tukadian: I'm too hard into Simulators right now. I can't be adding Flight Sim to the mix now, but damn that sounds fun.
cuttlefishman: Boat Race?
LordZarano: Lucas Pope has very extensive development blogs for their games
PixelArtDragon: @BrowneePoints It gives me such an inferiority complex knowing that as one person, I can't make games even 1/10 as good
DeM0nFiRe: @PixelArtDragon Unreal Engine is AAA and "source avaiable" with explicit permission to allow you to just browse it to learn and take ideas from it
samwonk: I never considered a game where you get into highly realistic WWII fighters and then don't dogfight.
SquareDotCube: But what about a dogfight royale?
Japolai: if you flew near other plays in the past the planes would despawn
Japolai: planes*
PixelArtDragon: @PixelArtDragon Huh, I guess I'll be shopping there for frustum culling ideas
cuttlefishman: That's kinda off
Mai_Andra: The planes over Spain got lost in the rains?
cuttlefishman: *odd
cuttlefishman: cause like, most of the racing WWII planes were like super modded out after the fact
RandomTrivia: *bonk*
RandomTrivia: *pop*
Tukadian: @PixelArtDragon Unreal is great, and I've been slowly teaching myself with a lot of free resources they give out.
cuttlefishman: So any of the buffalos or hellcats or what not that were racing / are racing now
cuttlefishman: are like super off spec
Ignatiuspants: that kind of deal ruined so many car games! it's unfair
MolaMolaphant: something new and interesting, like a wreck!
RandomTrivia: I would love to fly a MegaZord made of four 747s and an A380
cuttlefishman: I guess bearcats and mustangs are prob the big ones for most of them
SpacePotato01: They blush and awkwardly fly off
Loonatic93: Gekigengar 3? Now THAT is a reference!
DeM0nFiRe: You do have to like join their github organization and like accept the license, but it's free to do so (basically same license as using the editor if yuo directly use the engine you pay royalties over a certain revenue. But they do specifically call out that reading the source and taking ideas from it as long as you dont actually copy code is totally free with no royalties
saberpilot: holy hell, my husband picked a bad time to be asleep
saberpilot: nadesico is his #1 favorite anime
PixelArtDragon: @PixelArtDragon Oh, the free (or at least free to develop) engines are great, don't get me wrong. But there's a difference between those and open-sourced code that can be used to make your own changes or to make your own engine.
saberpilot: cheer50 for the nadesico reference
Loonatic93: Was Gekigengar 3 an actual anime? Or did it only exist in MSN?
saberpilot: there's a fake ova they made
RandomTrivia: FBtouchdown ANIME! FBtouchdown
saiarcot895: yup, that's physics
niccus: that's just rocket jumping
lirazel64: Bond levels of physics!
TheAinMAP: Physics.
PixelArtDragon: That's TOTALLY how physics
Bionull: Explosion = Uno Reverse Card
kusinohki: this almost sounds like "Airbats"...
Metric_Furlong: no, that's Dead Snow
cuttlefishman: Nerds
felipe_modesto: Point clouds
TheAinMAP: All rivets accounted for.
A1_Saucy: Iron Man digital wireframe for WWII planes!
RandomTrivia: The skills and knowledge to maintain these old aircraft are literally disappearing from living memory.
Creideiki_SE: @PixelArtDragon There's always the iD engines, if you don't mind that they're AAA from the last generation. Otherwise I've heard people say good things about Godot, but I've never used it myself.
Loonatic93: I'm just sad that Beej mentioned airplanes combining together and not calling out Superion!
MagicalAttackGecko: what
cuttlefishman: And like, most of the manufacturing was not to the sub MM specifications
RandomTrivia: LUL
RandomTrivia: Thanks Beej
ritchards: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
jarnatan: I have experienced Beej
BrowneePoints: actual dogfighting
PixelArtDragon: @PixelArtDragon Godot is good, but its 3D things are at least a few years behind the current engines
cuttlefishman: Is Chillpoint supposed to be funny?
ritchards: that is comedy "working"
TheMerricat: chat you wouldn't download a car but would you download a world war two fighter plane?
cuttlefishman: @TheMerricat heck yeah
kusinohki: @TheMerricat sign me up!
Loonatic93: I would absolutely download a car!
cuttlefishman: Give me that Westland Wyvvern
saberpilot: @themerricat maaaaaybe
LordZarano: Gearbox scanned a real bus for Desert Bus VR
kusinohki: hell, I'll take a WW 1 plane
PharaohBender27: katesWot
A1_Saucy: life imitates art
PixelArtDragon: They're landing pads for alien ships
cuttlefishman: @LordZarano What bus?
LurkerSpine: I will say, it works super well for the very limited games it's out for
LurkerSpine: It's on phones too
Loonatic93: Ya know, for all we know, ubisoft could have just had Hatshepsut working there.
EvilBadman: You can stream the 4k Series X games on the lower Xboxen
EvilBadman: is the big thing
Mai_Andra: Streaming is like the "PS Now" subscription.
RandomTrivia: BEEJ NO
LurkerSpine: it's called xcloud (or was)
PixelArtDragon: !listen
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
Loonatic93: XBox U!
Alex_Frostfire: Call it a New Xbox One X Series S.
PixelArtDragon: The XBox 4
BrowneePoints: Xbox SE:X
X_modem: Xboxoneseriesxbox360boxboxbox
TheMerricat: 420xBox69
PixelArtDragon: XBoxPi
Electrodyne: mmmmm pie
LordZarano: @cuttlefishman some old vintage bus from the time the first game was made I think
saiarcot895: now it all depends on your internet connection and latency
Tukadian: Would have made Cyberpunk's life easier if they only had to release for the next gen.
Loonatic93: Somedays I wonder if there are times were Bonesaw isn't ready, and nobody is there to tell him that "it's okay."
TheMerricat: or buy multiple copies of one
BrowneePoints: I still can't believe they made a machine that can be named the SEXbox
Loonatic93: Bonesaw shouldn't always have to be ready.
RandomTrivia: UM
Alex_Frostfire: Ah, Jerma.
RandomTrivia: Ah ok, that makes more sense
asddsa28: Jerma
asddsa28: that is what happen
DEATHlikescats: Nasubi in Japan
GapFiller: mmm speedy
cuttlefishman: You ever see a 24hr Waiting for Godot performance?
PharaohBender27: @cuttlefishman So what, they peform Waiting for Godot and then just adlib for 22 hours while they continue to wait?
PharaohBender27: ShowLove300
TheMerricat: Saints row reboot!!!
Pteraspidomorphi: I'm loving Psychonauts 2
DEATHlikescats: I've heard you can run Waiting for Godot backwards and it still works
Pteraspidomorphi: Your... fig?
PixelArtDragon: Like how Beej realized he already owned Minecraft?
Earthenone: is upheaval in the format now? :P
GapFiller: the long awaited
EvilBadman: I don't think so earthnone

Styxseus: Neat
ritchards: Something's gonna happen!
jessieimproved: LRRL lrrHORN
saiarcot895: somehow, it doesn't feel like the last LRL was that long ago
TheMerricat: @saiarcot895 August was a blur
jessieimproved: Wandersong has been a trippy game, great to watch
Pteraspidomorphi: I think we're post-santa
saiarcot895: @TheMerricat honestly, yeah
Styxseus: Sounds plausible :P
TheMerricat: Single player Gwent with a story
TheTekkieman: It's a story in the Witcher universe where things happen through Gwent.
LordZarano: Thronebreaker seemed like Gwent: Story Mode, yea
Ignatiuspants: probably maybe...?
DeM0nFiRe: Gnomes vs Dragon't
Pteraspidomorphi: There were some tiny design issues
Styxseus: I mean.. How do you even do well in that game :D
Ignatiuspants: that book seems like it might be impossible
Styxseus: It doesnt even point to the end if you win!
SpacePotato01: I think given the RNG involved in winning that game, it may actually be statistically impossible to win in a human lifetime.
Drasvin: Game breaker bugs in paper format
KaleidoscopeMind: Neighbor evil
cuttlefishman: Watch the Resident Evil movie
CastleOtranto: They could play RE: Code Veronica

LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 3:29 PM
beowuuf: a clock is always, right?
jarnatan: Heather is a clock, is that what we converged on?
TheMerricat: @spacepotato01 so there was a forum-based playthrough of the book done by the community for the web comic order of the stick and they did in fact win without quote cheating quote but they did have a lot of pre-game meta knowledge
CrazymattCaptain: clock is always
cuttlefishman: In before @A_Clock subscribes
LordZarano: @beowuuf Not just for christmas!
