TehAmelie: ten minutes, but the last five took an extra ten, so twenty minutes
PixelArtDragon: So... how about that video game news that happened today?
Styxseus: lrrSIG

GapFiller: like from sending the tweet last Sunday to fired in 2~3 days tops
PixelArtDragon: Prepare Yourself
TehAmelie: i was still on tripwire's steam page from putting them on ignore when he quit
TheAinMAP: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW

DeM0nFiRe: Jigglypuff has Rest, yeah

Laserbeaks_Fury: And also Will Smith is in Fortnite?
Styxseus: Its SUCH a popular franchise
niccus: oh right, there was fortnite news just this morning
Saxpython: Legions of Fan, singular?
Styxseus: *cough*
veelofar: Put Venti in Fortnite, you cowards!
RockPusher: ♫ Beware the demo woman… ♫
ANeMzero: It's a little known fact that actually every Unreal 5 game requires this character to be in it, so they're doing this in preparation for their Unreal 5 version of Fortnite
TehAmelie: i'm sure the model had a name in the demo files. Pawn, i think is the default in game makers
v_nome: Mortal Kombat did that
PharaohBender27: katesLol
kusinohki: mo cap suit isn't already a fortnite skin??
Fanklok: MoCap was already in Mortal Kombat
kirbytronic: Paul Saunders, Internet FunnyTechPerson
Angreed66: Are you sure that's not already in there
v_nome: Mokap, the guy that did the motion capture
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, I'm shocked a mocap suit isn't something in Fortnite
ANeMzero: I look forward to them reintroducing Paragon characters in Fortnite.
CAKHost: They should have a guy that isn't properly green-screened out
TehAmelie: remember Ermac, the secret character made up by an error code?
TheMerricat: do they still make demos like that for 3D Mark chat?
beowuuf: put greenscreen suit beej in fortnite you cowards
Styxseus: Everyone in the world just has weird placeholder names? LUL
CAKHost: @beowuuf :D
Laserbeaks_Fury: I'm still struggling with Die Hardman
kirbytronic: Windwalker Echo - You fight them for 6 and a half hours to try and finally get the non-lethal kill, for Snake to pick up a machine gun in the following cut scene
TehAmelie: is Windwalker her family name? like Zippotricks
NotCainNorAbel: How about guy from PUBG?
Styxseus: Have you met my brother? "Dies in Act2 (NameTBD)?"
TheMerricat: for knife?
LordZarano: TBH "Unnamed character from tech demo" is totally my jam. I have a bunch of random nvidia tech demos on my PC. I'm not in the market for Fortnite though, so even I'm not the target audience
Robot_Bones: I prefer to play as John Fortnite
BlueChloroplast: I still can't believe that some of the Mistborn characters are in Fortnite

TehAmelie: if it was me i'd simply have named her Demo Mode
GapFiller: if yr a previously mostly unknown CEO who wants want everyone to know their name there are surely better ways of going abt it than this
Robot_Bones: [Everyone disliked that]
veelofar: That tweet was a big Yikes from me, Dawg.
MagicalAttackGecko: Man fucks around, finds out, more at 11
beowuuf: lrrEFF around a fi- oh, nm
GapFiller: yeh that escalated rapidly
NotCainNorAbel: That's a new level of you f'd up
TehAmelie: ha i didn't even realize what coward move it was. tweeting on the holiday when it would take the most time for backlash to happen
Brozard: Not sure who that guy that he was even planning to impress or influence, or what he expected the repercussions would be.
TehAmelie: ACLU utterly condemns it, what else do you need to know
Styxseus: Wait what? :P
TheMerricat: crap I thought he had really gotten screwed over and was really fired but he's actually apparently co-owner of the company which means losing CEO title means jack shit
KV1NN4: And the person whose being hunted has to pay the bounty hiunter that $10k
GapFiller: in other news the DOJ is suing Texas over the law
Metric_Furlong: legalising vigilantism can't possibly end badly, right Kappa
Saxpython: :-(
Styxseus: That sounds.. Uhh.. Very, very bad
josh___something: I applaud you for your conviction... I guess?
GapFiller: if yr gonna go big or go home at least go all in
niccus: oh he has a pro-life song from his own band in the game, he's not pulling out anytime soon
TheMerricat: which game @niccus ?
niccus: Killing Floor 2
Brozard: Hmm. Chinese social karma credit system bad. Texas social vigilantism system good. Hmm. lrrSPOOP_TK
TheMerricat: He's still co-owner of the company unfortunately
Styxseus: I'd be surprised if they could just YEET him from a company he owns a big part of
Snowcookies: yeah
Styxseus: Positively surprised! But yeah
TehAmelie: by the way there's explicitly no provisions in the law about overloading the snitching system with fake tips. . .
Brozard: ^^
TheMerricat: some companies do have buyout clauses but...
Brozard: The website has already been taken down by false claims
Brozard: *due to false claims
TehAmelie: ha
Arctech14: wasn't false claims. it violated their terms of service
Laurence72: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always doing a silly voice.
kirbytronic: Heather is on the side of summoning the rhythm apocalypse
PixelArtDragon: Not friends, temporary allies
Brozard: @Arctech14 Ah, you're right, got my info mixed up
TheMerricat: they got kicked off GoDaddy for tos violations, their current provider of domain name services and their hosting provider has said that if they actually turn the site back on because right now it redirects to a right to life website that it will be in violation of their terms of service and they'll be kicked on the other hand this current provider is also the same one that's hosting a lot of other shady shit so who knows whether or not they'll actually follow through or not
BlueChloroplast: SirSword
PharaohBender27: Wait, 36-hour days?
Styxseus: Uhhh, wait
TehAmelie: inside you there are two wolves. one of them wants to make all your internal organs eat each other, and the other one wants the organs to decide for themselves
Styxseus: *counts hours in a day*
wildpeaks: math is hard ok
TheWriterAleph: 36-hour shift. which is no-thank-you
RockPusher: I would argue a full 24hours of that would add negative progress
Snowcookies: 36 hours without sleep sounds terrible. Not even I tried pulling all nighters in uni
Styxseus: Even 24h without sleep is pretty bad :P
kirbytronic: 8 hours of probably okay work trying to fix the other 28 hours of overtired work
wildpeaks: I've pulled a few 36 hours but that's hyperfocus, it shouldn't be the default
tknomncr: Why not both?
Brozard: Keep Sleeping & Nobody Implodes
TheMerricat: I think the most heartwarming part of this whole story is they got rid of the crunch and the next games were still awesome and well received meaning the crunch never needed to exist in the first place they just needed better management
Styxseus: But hey, naps at the office totally counts as a full nights sleep, right?
PharaohBender27: Pretty sure the longest I've been awake was about 33 hours when I was in undergrad, and let me tell you I got pretty loopy after being awake about 28 hours, and was starting to nod off in my last class that day.
RockPusher: We need more stories about competent management
BlueChloroplast: indeed
kirbytronic: I'm waiting for some kind of remake/release... at some point, hopefully
DeM0nFiRe: I always end up just staying up all night to watch awful / silly block during GDQ LUL
Metric_Furlong: longest I've ever been awake was 50 hours. I would not recommend it
Laserbeaks_Fury: Prime 2 was awesome, but I never played Prime 3 because it was Wii controls
Styxseus: The M-Prime games are really good! :D
ANeMzero: American work culture isn't exactly great either :P
kirbytronic: Wasn't there a story of someone working on Smash being hooked up to an IV so they could keep working?
DeM0nFiRe: Easier to just skip a night of sleep than rearrange sleep schedule and then fix it afterwards
GapFiller: this aint their first rodeo
GapFiller: Nintendo know a thing or two abt running a hoedown
wildpeaks: @DeM0nFiRe *stares at a ESA speedrun on her other screen* :D
PharaohBender27: @ANeMzero Yeah, Americans on average take a lot less time off each year than workers in most other countries
KinoGami: @kirbytronic that was sakurai himself and he did it to himself. he wasn't told to do it
Fanklok: "I haven't had a day off in 8 months"
DeM0nFiRe: @DeM0nFiRe LUL
Styxseus: :D
TehAmelie: "Nintendo" literally means something like "work hard and you don't need to be lucky". seems ironic
CAKHost: Regular Crispy Day?
Brozard: The Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme
CaptainSpam: "We've learned about 'Crunch', we hear it's real bad, and you'll be working around the clock until we figure out where it came from!"
Laurence72: Ca[tain Crunch?
Laserbeaks_Fury: But not Cap'n Crunch
PixelArtDragon: It's also disheartening to hear that the solution to stopping crunch was "let's not do that" and yet companies nowadays can't seem to understand it
TheMerricat: what about Capt Crunch?
wildpeaks: well, depends on contracts, for example CDD/CDI gets a lot more off time and benefits in France than self-employed workers
Raiger: Y'know, my mom used to make a captain crunch coated chicken that was actually pretty yummy...
Saxpython: +1
Brozard: To fix crunch, don't crunch
kirbytronic: Nintendo Shadowrun Megacorp
Raiger: At least my youthful memories are of it being yummy :D
spicyFerret_: "QA knows a thing or two about crunch", words stolen from my own brain
PixelArtDragon: Just don't crunch 4head
Saxpython: Rooting for the Nintendo buys EA timeline
Styxseus: In theory.. :D It's a thing everyone should be able to do
kirbytronic: "Don't announce your game's release date until you're reasonably sure you can release it then"
Brozard: ^^
spicyFerret_: Rooting for the Nintendo buys Activision timeline
MagicalAttackGecko: Echos, #2
ANeMzero: Metroid Prime 2 echos has the light and dark mechanic
MagicalAttackGecko: (my first shooter, btw)
Saxpython: @spicyferret_ +1
TehAmelie: "design your release date around the game, not the other way around"
Laserbeaks_Fury: You know, just flip your castle upside down and double your game size
Styxseus: Working smarter etc.
RockPusher: The classic "work smarter, not harder"
fastlane250: Work smarter, not harder
Styxseus: Not very helpful (as advice, because its so situational), but very true
DeM0nFiRe: Majora's Mask being released as quick as it was is kinda crazy, even given that it re-uses assets. It's such a detailed world
spicyFerret_: ATVI QA crunch is nasty, along with *everything else*
veelofar: Ah, MP2, my second favorite Metroid game...
kirbytronic: "I missed the 30 second window to do that thing that was going to set up the rest of this week. Better reset, sigh."
TehAmelie: !advice
LRRbot: Don't wall into frozen water.
Fanklok: How did the bank in Kajora's Mask know how much money Link had in the future
GapFiller: Hell of a motivation that watching the Moon hit Termina
TheWriterAleph: hmmmm
Brozard: lrrSPOOP_TK lrrSPOOP_TK
GapFiller: not naming names eh Paul
RockPusher: lrrHEART lrrSLOTH lrrHEART
wildpeaks: an unspecified amount of PS5s
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
Laserbeaks_Fury: The bank wrote how much Link had on hi shand
Saxpython: lol

LurkingLuusi: define on the market cause i'm not paying 800 moneys for a consol
TehAmelie: Horizon Word Salad
Laserbeaks_Fury: But playing Forbidden West on PS4 is going to be soooo....bad
kusinohki: @wildpeaks I need a PC upgrade so I can play HZD 1 ...
LunarJade: @TheMerricat That's when Spiderman 2 is suppose to come out.
wildpeaks: it isn't called Horizon Zero Dawn anymore ?
PixelArtDragon: Is the PS5 backwards compatible with PS4 games without any upgrade?
Creideiki_SE: Horizon One Dawn.
TheMerricat: ah :D
Metric_Furlong: Horizon Journey to the West
kirbytronic: Horizon Zero Dawn 2: Horizon Zero-er
wildpeaks: HZD++
ANeMzero: A lot of people dismissed "Smart Delivery" as meaningless marketing stuff but making upgrades easy, and committing to free upgrades long term was just a nice thing.
DeM0nFiRe: That is such a dick move lol
saiarcot895: how is "launch window" defined?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Zero Dawn was a subtitle, like A New Hope
wildpeaks: hmmm
Styxseus: @wildpeaks From what I gather, series title = Horizon. First game in the series = Zero Dawn
spicyFerret_: COOL TECHNOLOGY?
wildpeaks: darn, it took long enough for my brain to memorize this title
KinoGami: lighting and framerate, mostly
Laserbeaks_Fury: 4k native
TehAmelie: does it have special eyes?
kirbytronic: HZD wasn't my favorite game, but I also platinumed it, so maybe don't listen to me
TheMerricat: @pixelartdragon doesn't look like anyone answered I googled and in theory yes but since they say they actually had to look at the games to make them compatible I have a feeling that it may not be hardware-based compatibility
Styxseus: Huh.
wildpeaks: too bad they didn't call it "Horizon: One Something", the first 0-based serie of games
LordZarano: The triggers feeling "like pulling on a bow string" was a big marketing thing
ANeMzero: Another problem was that there was no way to upgrade to a higher tier from a lower one, so if you just bought normal PS4 version, it would be the whole price of the PS5 to upgrade.
Styxseus: @wildpeaks LUL
MrSVCD: can't wait for the pc edition. I am playing zero dawn on pc now and it is great.
Fanklok: We're keeping out word, your welcome
TehAmelie: maybe the third one will be Horizon 360, to be really confusing
wildpeaks: if I recall correctly, Control also didn't have a free upgrade for PS5 ?
RockPusher: If there had already been pre-orders based on the original information then Sony's lawyers might have pointed out that that wouldn't fly in many jurisdictions
Laserbeaks_Fury: uuhg
PixelArtDragon: I feel like especially after what happened with Cyberpunk 2077's release and running on previous generation consoles that they definitely should have been working on the upgrade before the delay.
Brozard: Unless you bought a digital copy of the PS4 game, maybe?
wildpeaks: Too Many Editions
Mai_Andra: If you buy the digital version, the license to it will be attached to your PSN account. They will know that you "own" it.
wildpeaks: I recall the ubisoft grid
Brozard: That's what I assumed
KinoGami: guess i'm glad i just have a ps5 and I just have to try to make sure i don't install the ps4 version of a game
RockPusher: The Microsoft approach to product SKUs
Laserbeaks_Fury: man, Ragnarok has me hype
TheTruePhantomAngel: I assume KOTOR Remake didn't have a bundle?
BlueChloroplast: yeah the "edition charts"
TheTruePhantomAngel: announcement*
TehAmelie: i understand God of War has a sexy Thor in it. what are the odds Kratos will fight him?
spurius: and people made fun of microsfot smart delivery
spicyFerret_: Horizon Zero West: Edition Edition
Styxseus: I assume at *some* point they will just stop with the ps4 versions, but because of the console sales issues, they couldn't do that as fast as they wanted?
TheWriterAleph: why are things the way they are :(
wildpeaks: wibbly wobly timey wimey
saiarcot895: sounds worse than USB-C/Thunderbolt/DP/USB 3.2 Gen 2/<insert new standard here>
Laserbeaks_Fury: Well, Kratos has a history of killing gods, so odds are high
Robot_Bones: PS6 supplies are real scarce
kirbytronic: I heard it has a 100% fatality rate, though
Laurence72: I time travel 6-7 hours each night in my bed
niccus: travel.
Halinn: Can't go straight to PS6, since Paul will get all six of them that they'll release
electra310: Kinda slow, only one direction, but low energy and reliable
Snowcookies: living lol
LordZarano: Having fired a bow, I have to say that that doesn't sound very appealing to me. It takes a LOT of force. There's a reason why crossbows were made
TheWriterAleph: Paul, King of Segues
Japolai: I time travel forward at a speed of 1 second per second
GapFiller: its true traveling thru time at one second per second IS still time travel
RockPusher: Heather said chip shortage and for a moment there I was thinking about french fries
Snowcookies: Poreos?
Mai_Andra: If you want to do entry level time travel, like a plebian.
wildpeaks: secret oreos, through the mountain
Laserbeaks_Fury: Shiney Oreos
MolaMolaphant: oh, the scab cookies?
Laurence72: Are these Voreos?
misskale: ?
saucemaster5000: manufacturing demand is very pokemon
TehAmelie: if you think about it we're all experiencing some relative time dilation in every interaction we have
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Krispy Kreme Australia is apparently doing pokemon donuts too
PMAvers: Secret Lair: Oreo Edition
GapFiller: ever since looking it up cant see Oreos w/o thinking of that one Chinese spider that basically looks like an Oreo w/ legs
kirbytronic: The dumbest part of them being the "some are rarer than others" is that would imply you're supposed to collect them... and not open the cookies? To see if you got the "special" ones?
PMAvers: You can pay $29.99 now for five cookies.
TheTruePhantomAngel: Agreed.
Fanklok: How many people are going to have display cases showing all the oreos off in their home.
KinoGami: trade your US Pikachu oreo for your friends UK Charmander Oreo
TheTruePhantomAngel: Though I do find it funny a kid may end up eating a $5000 cookie.
RockPusher: benginOh benginNo
kusinohki: animal crackers, but pokemon shapes
ANeMzero: Give me some rat flavored oreos
wildpeaks: colors would have been enough branding
XprotoformX: Is there a sparkling edition of the Pokémon Oreos?
Orgmastron: Also, remember that Nabisco workers are on strike
Laserbeaks_Fury: Magicrackers
v_nome: Some parent is going to deal with a fit because their kid wanted the Pikachu cookie, not the Charizard.
wildpeaks: one day I will taste the special japanese kitkats
PMAvers: I want to see collectors getting into fist fights over packs of oreos.
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong Sorry
TheTruePhantomAngel: Where is my shiny Pokemon Oreos!
KinoGami: one in every 4000 packages has a shiny oreo
electra310: The shiny is botulism!
kirbytronic: #PokeScabs
Fanklok: Those selfish workers, won't anyone think of the copporations
CAKHost: I feel the only rare cookies I might tolerate is the Insomnia Cookie store I just learned about. They specialize in making warm cookies late night/early morning
TheTruePhantomAngel: Yeah...might be passing on that.
KinoGami: i mean it's probably just edible gold flakes
TheMerricat: you know I've been having fun being addicted to store brand grasshopper cookies those are nice
wildpeaks: one unit of oreo
Mai_Andra: No more cookies?! The Agenda strikes again!
saucemaster5000: aren't likitungs considered a delicacy in some pokemon game? do they taste like oreos?
keroan0: Wow, I JUST got a notification that LRR was live, 48 minutes after going live. Someone put the fire in the Twitch servers out! XD
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
ANeMzero: Personally I'm holding out for Digimon Hydrox
BlueChloroplast: ah colin mochire as the snack fairy
Brozard: Give me chewy ginger molasses cookies over Oreos any day
CAKHost: Same...
mowdownjoe: I think baking anything of your own is more fun. I've fallen in love with making my own pizza.
TehAmelie: i think oreos are an America thing. it seems you can't get them fresh here, just incredibly stale
TheTruePhantomAngel: @saucemaster5000 Wait, or do you mean Slowpoke tails?
electra310: Hydrox, like Oreos but you definitely don't eat the whole bag
misskale: I like Hydrox
KinoGami: "fresh" oreos?
TheMerricat: The problem with hydrox cookies is we expect them to taste like Oreos and they don't
Mai_Andra: Chewie "Chips Ahoy" though... xivGoob
saucemaster5000: that's it -- slowpokes
Styxseus: :D
PMAvers: I'm pretty sure Oreo's default state is stale.
wildpeaks: yeah we only get them in special "american aisle" part of shops
LordZarano: "Hydrox" just sounds like a cleaning product to me
MagicalAttackGecko: All of chat will help out....
niccus: oreo taster's choice?
ANeMzero: At one point you could get Hydrox in Canada (source: I have had Hydrox in Canda)
kirbytronic: Ben is already at the Moonbase
RockPusher: That sounds like a good LRL bit for when everyone can come back to the office at the same time
Lord_Hosk: Heather, at the next safe convention in... 2040 maybe??? I will bring you some
RockPusher: LRR eats the WHOLE cookie
KinoGami: i mean, isn't a pokemon themed donut just a rice ball? KappaHD
kusinohki: the regular doughnuts are pokeballs?
RockPusher: fugiWow
Japolai: Krispy Kreme does that all the time! it's so annoying
Fanklok: Pokemon Company please stop ruining the thin veil that allows me to ignore the fact that they 100% eat pokemon in pokeworld
PMAvers: You know what pokemon is nice and round and perfect to be a doughnut? ROWLETT
v_nome: @KinoGami Only the jellies
Saxpython: Preach Heather, Preach!
TheMerricat: I'm pissed none of the doughnuts are rice ball shaped to honor the cartoon sensorine from Fox
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ursaring Claws?
Saxpython: +1 overrated
kusinohki: pika pika :(
kirbytronic: Let us have Mimikyu instead >(
TheMerricat: censoring even
DeM0nFiRe: 3 pikachus, a pikachu wannabe and a pikachu hasbeen
GapFiller: theyre fine
BlueChloroplast: I def ate pokemon in the games
Snowcookies: They're fine
PharaohBender27: katesWot
Brozard: They're only great hot off the presses. After they've cooled, they're just okay
GhostValv: wat
TreeVor84: Personally, I don't like Krispy Kreme.
wildpeaks: they better be good donuts at this price
misskale: my dad says they have a half life
saiarcot895: they better be really great donuts
RockPusher: Good donuts are worth the money
TheNerdWonder: They’re okay. Local donut places are generally better
Juliamon: Krispy Kreme isn't artisanal
Fanklok: Can you translate that to Norwegian Kroner?
electra310: Duck Donuts makes the donuts right in front of you and a dozen doesn't cost 30
Mai_Andra: Krispy Kreme are extremely light bread, so they're maybe 60% glaze? xivMorbol
Lord_Hosk: Krispy Kream is... Fine. They are above average if you get them fresh made but they are never great.
TheWriterAleph: i have the unpopular opinion that KK is overrated as hell
saiarcot895: oh right, that makes a bit more sense
wildpeaks: krona or kronuts
theblakdeth: $3.00 for an artisinal donut in Portland is actually pretty cheap
RockPusher: AUD vs CAN is fairly close
Laserbeaks_Fury: Cinamón Rolls
fastlane250: i don’t remember how much a dozen costs from my local bakery
wildpeaks: delicious engagement
TheMerricat: Krispy Kreme is good but it's fast food good, not good food good
electra310: Leave a comment in both!
Angreed66: From desert bus conversions the Aus $ is slightly lesss worth than cad
kirbytronic: Ben and Heather rank Pokemon Again: This Time With Donuts
spicyFerret_: 30 AUD is roughly 28 CAD
couldntpickausername: what a fun news storeo
Halinn: Whenever you have any tangentially related experience to something in Checkpoint, you should leave a comment on both that video and the chillpoint vod
Brozard: If you win, you get your teeth smashed
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
CAKHost: Um
GapFiller: sic Britt Bake on this guy and see what happens
DeM0nFiRe: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
GapFiller: Adam Cole on commentary
Snowcookies: house of lies
fastlane250: lrrSPOOP
Saxpython: oh no!
TheWriterAleph: if you lose you GIVE HIM YOUR TEETH
GapFiller: *Britt Baker
Halinn: Actually, just comment on all LRR vids. Praise be unto the Algorithm
wildpeaks: at least chat isn't chanting "teeth"
Boolean263: teeth teeth teeth
TheWriterAleph: teeth teeth teeth
wildpeaks: my bad, I jinxed it
Laserbeaks_Fury: He's got a high Win/Floss ratio Kappa
GapFiller: Did Somebody Say Teeth!?
RockPusher: Do you really want someone you have just schooled in Smash to then be doing teeth stuff on you?
Laurence72: A good way to get you in the door. A tried and true selling method -- First one is FREE
LordZarano: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
PharaohBender27: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Lord_Hosk: Cleanings are cheap
TehAmelie: five thousand comments on every video just going "teeth teeth"
Snowcookies: Maybe he goes easy with kids
GapFiller: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR TEETH
saucemaster5000: are we playing during the teeth cleaning?
KinoGami: sounds like a way to incentivize new clients
TheMerricat: The trick is he does the cleanings for free and finds billions of cavities because well his customers are the sort of people who play smash to get free dentist cleanings
spicyFerret_: 30 AUD = 28 CAD = 22.07 USD = 192.22 NOK
RockPusher: Does the game of Smash happen after the anaesthetic?
DeM0nFiRe: Counter point: If you know you have big dental surgery coming up, spend a bunch of time practicing mash bros
Lord_Hosk: Cleanings are basically a loss leader for dentist anyways, they are just for them to find the real problems
Snowcookies: Cool
Seth_Erickson: Hamsters 👀
Saxpython: @spicyferret_ +1
theblakdeth: Hamster: the Mage sounds like a new RPG
KinoGami: is it Hamazing?
KinoGami: I feel they dropped the ball on their game title
electra310: Look how cute it is!
Styxseus: Thats... ADORABLE...
saberpilot: they look like those zhu zhu pets
PMAvers: Fluff Guys
Brozard: awwwwwwww
PharaohBender27: katesAw

electra310: oh my god
TheWriterAleph: This for every pet, please
Saxpython: aweome
TehAmelie: all the adorbs of actual hamsters but none of the poop and year-long lifespans, seems great
wildpeaks: training montage
KinoGami: harvey, harvey, harvey the wonder hamster
spicyFerret_: brownCHARLIE
GapFiller: Fuzzbutt
cuttlefishman: What were there names?
GapFiller: we all remember Fuzzbutt Paul
Brozard: He doesn't bite, and he doesn't squeal, he just runs around on his hamster wheel
cuttlefishman: Fuzzbutt was one
wildpeaks: ha, had two mice too :)
GapFiller: and Tribble and Zot
tr3ewitch88: benginChamp benginChamp benginChamp
theblakdeth: reminds me of the Chao racing in Sonic Adventure 2
Styxseus: Bonus hamsters!
CAKHost: Bonus hamsters!
CAKHost: :D
Styxseus: :D
PixelArtDragon: Hamster free DLC!
saucemaster5000: I was also sold a pregnant hamster as a kid -- what's up with that?
wildpeaks: one was saved from the science experiments at school, the other sneaked in my room from the garden
iris_of_ether: I had bonus DLC with my pet mice growing up, too :D
Brozard: @saucemaster5000 Bonus hamsters!
Laurence72: Kneel before ZOT!
TehAmelie: they get pregnant as soon as the store staff blinks, i guess
Laserbeaks_Fury: Fuzzbutt, the lesser known incarnation of Fizban
TheMerricat: @saucemaster5000 hamsters are hard to tell if they are pregnant or mot
ZackTheCatKing: Hey folks, is FNPF on tonight?
TehAmelie: are hamsters the zucchini of pets?
BusTed: Especially without training.
kirbytronic: @ZackTheCatKing No FNPF, PPR on Sunday
Snowcookies: hamsters are not smart
ZackTheCatKing: @kirbytronic ahh thanks!
GapFiller: ZackTheCatKing PPR on Sunday
TehAmelie: as in, you always get way more than you barbained for
kirbytronic: I believe Wheeler's taking the slot
Laserbeaks_Fury: lrrHAM sters!
Snowcookies: they are
TheMerricat: lol
TehAmelie: we have your email address!
saucemaster5000: my hamster would get in its plastic ball and make a beeline for the stairs
Styxseus: and they'r also like "If I dont run, I will starve. TIME TO RUN!" which doesnt help :D
PixelArtDragon: @thingsonmystream
Snowcookies: I got bit by a dwarf hamster once
spicyFerret_: @thingsonmystream
tr3ewitch88: that napoleon complex
lucha_libro: I used to have a dwarf hamster, and they are indeed tiny angry fuzzy sausages
wildpeaks: ouch
kusinohki: graham tweets about paul's controversal hamster opinions...
ShaneLeeAtk: Can confirm
Saxpython: Paul going deep on rodent knowledge
CAKHost: 8[
KV1NN4: Ferrets bite because thats how they play, unfortunately. x.x;
cuttlefishman: sorry, what
BusTed: Whoa.
Styxseus: Thats HORRIFYING
spicyFerret_: yes hello i am ferret
wildpeaks: uhhh
Brozard: everaqRage lrrSPOOP
KinoGami: a horde of feral dwarf hamsters
GapFiller: what yr saying Paul is dwarf hamsters are basically like dolphins
GapFiller: cute lookin but evil
Fanklok: Cranivorous Hamster was not on my list of things I wanted to know existed
boosterdrivemtg: Skunky is familys pet pig
wildpeaks: I hope the puppies and kitten don't hunt rabbits in packs at night
CururuGuasu: With their tiny dwarf hamster axes
GapFiller: at least there isnt a literal panda too
BlueChloroplast: teeny axes!
TehAmelie: jeez i haven't even gotten to our old pal Pika's kitten game Calico yet
wildpeaks: has to be a nintendogs style game
KinoGami: duergar hamsers
PixelArtDragon: Wait. Are dwarf hamsters also burrowing animals?
KinoGami: hamsters*
Brozard: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
TehAmelie: Nintendogs, but with cats?
CAKHost: I already have my digimons, I'm good on the virtual animals that I need to make sure won't poo themselves to death
kusinohki: a rabbit tried to sneak in... but we caught it
Angreed66: That's just realistic walking a cat like a dog is a horrible thing to do
BlueChloroplast: nintendogs! and cats. we guess.
Styxseus: Hah, I kinda like the idea of "Train your dog! Bonus: A cat!" but when you try to train it, it just never listens no matter what you do :P
Lightningbro: I mean, the game was literally "Nintendogs + Cats" As I recall.
kirbytronic: There was a game like this that the "Coming up" was just Beej naming other animals that could've been in the game
DeM0nFiRe: I want the Mario 64 lego set SO BAD. Kinda wish they made it a ! instead of ? though
kusinohki: I've seen cat leashes, but I've heard it's like "the cat just tolerates the leash and still walks whereever it wants"
LordZarano: Like that sketch with Wes as a newspaperman. "Get me photos of cute kittens or you're FIRED!"
Japolai: the NES came out at the same time as the Mario, cos the chip works with it
Styxseus: @kusinohki It's more to prevent you indoor cat from escaping, I think. But still letting it have some outdoor-time
Orgmastron: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: a man wondering about box contents
PharaohBender27: Mawp
fastlane250: a [?] block containing brick-built scenes from a game that didn’t actually have [?] blocks
CAKHost: Hello music
PixelArtDragon: The top opens up to miniature Mario64 levels
fastlane250: Unless you count SM64DS
kusinohki: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: consciousness and it wishes it weren't a box
KinoGami: why haven't we gotten captain toad lego sets yet
wildpeaks: I have no lid and I must unbox
KinoGami: treasure tracker levels seem suiting for that kind of thing
CAKHost: LEGO Chibi
KinoGami: a mini-mini fig?
LordZarano: lrrJAMES James saw it for the fist time on his homestream this morning and immediately put in a preorder
Dromos_GHG: Micro-fig
RockPusher: Literally looking at the page for the LEGO NES again now trying to resist the urge…
Styxseus: Uh oh
saucemaster5000: I knew build-a-bear was haunted!
KinoGami: build a ghost
kusinohki: smoking jacket gengar??
Styxseus: Wait, why the robe?
KinoGami: five... voice... tracks...
KinoGami: so five versions of just "Gengar"
KinoGami: ok
PharaohBender27: katesLol
tr3ewitch88: I do like build a bear but they can be quite pricey
kirbytronic: Apparently there was a video with a cute/friendly Gengar recently?
saucemaster5000: give him a snifter and he's hugh gefnar
Angreed66: Inflections are powerful things
TheTruePhantomAngel: That happens, yeah.
DeM0nFiRe: wat
Styxseus: XD
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: LUL
swaggytaco: omg
BusTed: PokGengar
saiarcot895: LUL
RockPusher: gabyLul
QuietJay: PokGengar
Styxseus: o/
PharaohBender27: katesLol
saiarcot895: was not expecting that
KinoGami: that is not the voice i was expecting
GapFiller: nalvLUL ohhh WANT
Mai_Andra: xivGoob
TehAmelie: whose voice is that?
josh___something: LUL
veelofar: I love them so much
TheTruePhantomAngel: I have to admit though, my Bulbasaur plush from Build A Bear is the best. It is worth the price.
Saxpython: lol. this voice actor is great
fastlane250: I misheard that as “Gengar with 5.1 Sound”
KinoGami: i want to imagine that is just some random warehouse employee they recorded
LordZarano: "Sunkern" 😈
TheTruePhantomAngel: It's the only near life size one I could find too.
Fanklok: NIS?
Lightningbro: Yes, Phantom Brave is a Classic, that game's SO GOOD
Metric_Furlong: I own Phantom Brave - which I will eventually play at some point
PMAvers: ZHP?!
GapFiller: still got my old PS2 copy of Phantom Brave
Chipton: NIS didn't really get anywhere in the US until Disgaea
fatalDestiny: ZHP is great,
TheTruePhantomAngel: I wonder if the Gengar will the Build A Bear box issue my Bulbasaur one did. lol
GapFiller: lookin at it rn infact
Styxseus: Pffff
PMAvers: Holy shit ZHP is GREAT, and has been unavailable for ages.
Metric_Furlong: (downside of playing JRPGs is that takes a LONG time to get through them)
CururuGuasu: ZHP was great
Angreed66: They just can't lose at being a ranger
TheNerdWonder: That sounds like a W&P game
KinoGami: both
Styxseus: I think it's a bit of both?
Lightningbro: Prinney are sorta mascots, dood. But they're also from Disgaia
Styxseus: Not sure what came first
BlueChloroplast: oh. those penguins
KinoGami: exploding penguins
kirbytronic: Sounds like a villain in a Homestar Runner cartoon
Lightningbro: It's NIS, for all you know you play as Dark Death Evil Man.
PMAvers: If memory serves, he's unlosing because whenever he would be defeated, his level resets instead.
Metric_Furlong: Prinney is to NIS what Jack Frost is to Atlus, broardly speaking
Lord_Hosk: EvilBadMan is a nice guy
TheTruePhantomAngel: Never played the games Prinnys are in, yet I have a bunch of random stuff with them. lol
Styxseus: Prinny duud! o7 *explodes*
CururuGuasu: Short for Zettai Hero Project
TehAmelie: one sad thing with the SNES is it was very competently marketed. all the classics were very widely released. there are no unknown treasures, besides some unreleased half-finished things
Angreed66: Well they design book covers to convey genre
ritchards: lrrSERGE
PMAvers: One of the reasons why ZHP was gone for so long was that it had a exploit in it that let people hack their PSP's
Orgmastron: Ah yes, this
doormar: I was just watching a couple videos about this
GapFiller: yeh thats a conflict of interest
Styxseus: Hmm
TehAmelie: whoa i'm immediately interested in the new God of War https://i.imgur.com/eLyagtm.jpg
KinoGami: a secondary collectors market is crooked? shockedpikachu . jpg
Styxseus: @TehAmelie Oh yeah! It seems likes they're doing some cool things! They have some cool actor for Odin too I think
DeM0nFiRe: That's kinda rough though, if you are working grading a thing you probably have your own collection of the thing
Styxseus: (But Im mega-bad at names, so I dont recall +_+ )
Kuhfeek: I can confirm I do not have that much money
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: can they be monopoly dollars?
fastlane250: the market for buyers is just lrrGARBO right now
shendaras: You could by all sorts of things, like an NFT of the certification for the valuation of the game. /s
Fanklok: A sonic game being buggy?? Nooo
Styxseus: Heh
wildpeaks: abstract art
BlueChloroplast: ExtraLife
wildpeaks: sonic as a metaphor
BlueChloroplast: a DoritosChip sanic?
TehAmelie: troubleshooting step 1-5: turn it off and on again
ademus05: does anyone have a youtube link?
Styxseus: :D
ademus05: to the sonic bug?
Styxseus: I remember seeing a dragon-gun :P
kirbytronic: James has that one, I think
wildpeaks: ohhh I recall these
TehAmelie: you know there was a time in the early mid 00s when the internet was mostly made up of weapon skin graphics
TehAmelie: for HL2 mods
PharaohBender27: Camo-patterned? What is this, 2017?
Fanklok: Seems lkike some of these guns skins make things hard to differntiate
PMAvers: They actually do a pretty job on it, all the fancy effects and stuff are usually only seen on your own end.
saiarcot895: LUL it's a party then
BrowneePoints: That's some Saints Row stuff
Styxseus: Pfff LUL
wildpeaks: EBM or EDM ?
kirbytronic: That would make sense, considering some of the things the other guns do
KinoGami: now i'm just thinking of the saints row dubstep gun
BrowneePoints: The Saints Row Dubstep Gun was SO fun
KinoGami: is a headshot when the bass drops?
Styxseus: Maybe its more like razzledazzle camouflage :P
PMAvers: And, honestly, I kind of love that all the skins are for the guns (which you can actually SEE while playing) instead of outfits.
Styxseus: Like "wait, what IS that?"
KinoGami: more games need to take themselves less seriously
BrowneePoints: Oh yea the Supreme Court finally reached a decision on Epic vs Apple
GapFiller: wasnt it Cam and Alex?
Styxseus: @BrowneePoints They did?
wildpeaks: narrative-driven
Fanklok: A David Cage game that hasn't been ruined by David Cage
wildpeaks: short but memorable
Snowcookies: David Cage but good got it
BrowneePoints: @Styxseus Yep. Epic lost every count and has to pay millions, but Apple was deemed engaging in some anti-competitive(but non monopolistic) practices and has to allow external payment processors costing them BILLIONS. So they BOTH lost
2catladykatie subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 2 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, 2catladykatie! (Today's storm count: 12)
kusinohki: but what if bladerunner, but you sympathize with the replicants?
wildpeaks: sure, why not
Saxpython: @browneepoints :-)
Orgmastron: OH NO
Styxseus: @BrowneePoints That sounds.. Perfect LUL
wistol subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 20 months, currently on a 18 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, wistol! (Today's storm count: 13)
BlueChloroplast: both lost, oooh the best outcome
wildpeaks: older games already had a "see what other people picked" mode as far as I recall
ritchards: ignore chat? never!
wildpeaks: (unless I confuse with Dreamfall Chapters)
DeM0nFiRe: The witch has deathtouch
shendaras: You might make a mistake and do what chat wanted otherwise.
wildpeaks: they were already good at being stream friendly with the "mute copyrighted music" option
Juliamon: wildpeaks It told you at the end of the chapter, but not mid-game
Styxseus: Ahh. So chat is helping either way? Clever.
wildpeaks: ahh I see, then I was confusing with Dreamfall Chapters then
TehAmelie: so Epic and Apple BOTH lost. we said "whoever wins, we all lose" but. . .i guess we all won
Fanklok: Would you say... life is trange
BlueChloroplast: yeah that is bs for accessibility
Lightningbro: "Stuff is weird sometimes" You might even say... life is strange
virre_: I know music and lyrics used to have seperate distributions back when people bought a lot of books with music in it
Laurence72: Probably in case the license expires, so that they don't have to go back and change stuff
kirbytronic: Next week might be better anyway to take in some of the "fallout" as it were
Orgmastron: The Access-Ability video about Life is Strange: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtIoAdQkhE4&ab_channel=LauraKBuzz
TehAmelie: Life is Strange is a potent brand name. funny no one came up with it before
TheTruePhantomAngel: Gosh...those damn things.
TheTruePhantomAngel: Interesting?
wildpeaks: luckily never happened on any of the channels I mod, but I'm glad they're finally doing something about it
DeM0nFiRe: Wow the fact that they traced it to specific people is kinda nuts
Styxseus: Ohh?
ANeMzero: Bigots are everywhere
TehAmelie: your internet activity can be traced back to you personally, who knew?
kirbytronic: You can just say the US :P
virre_: Sadly those type of people are everywhere
iris_of_ether: Huhn.
PharaohBender27: Turns out Europe also has terrible racists!
wildpeaks: we got plenty of terrible people in Europe too sadly
Saxpython: <3
RockPusher: BrowneePoints I see a District Court injunction - nothing Apple vs Epic is at the Supreme court that I'm aware of???
wildpeaks: at least they have amazon-level money to deal with it
SurfDownstage subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 27 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, SurfDownstage! (Today's storm count: 14)
rubikdarkwill: @RockPusher "The federal judge overseeing the antitrust lawsuit brought by Epic Games against Apple"
RockPusher: yep, so not Supreme Court
Styxseus: Geez
Kaorti: It's a severe problem which has never been prioritized, in favor of more monitization.
RockPusher: it might get there one day - but that is a while aways
Kaorti: it's hard, but they haven't really tried
dylan16807: for reference, looks like twitch is estimated around 30% north american viewers
BrowneePoints: It's like stopping SWATing. It needs to happen, but trying to stop it is a complicated process
virre_: What court system are they suing in? That might have an impact on why they where from those countries
Sarah_Serinde: I mean hopefully it's an "and" not an "or"
couldntpickausername: social media as a whole needs to start doing something about hate campaigns
Kaorti: large companies *are* basically the only entities who can actually use the legal system
Styxseus: So on one hand.. All it took where a couple of people exploiting their tech.. So you could "just hunt them down" :P Buuut
Saxpython: criminal harassment has teeth
Styxseus: Doesnt that mean that anyone else could just do the same thing?
TehAmelie: i think we need to get back to calling up bad actor's ISPs and get them blacklisted
TehAmelie: actors'
Saxpython: lol
Lightningbro: I mean, wouldn't it be wonderful. "We sued the only two racists in the world, and they're never going to recover... The world is at peace now"
Fanklok: There's one person who has spenthe last TEN years actively ruining every game of Castel Wars on Runescape they possibly can
PMAvers: That Titanfall story... goes places. Especially when it turns out that the person and "group" that says they have a solution to the hacking... was actually the guy doing the hacking in the first place.
ANeMzero: Every time TERF stuff starts trending on twitter it usually ends up with half the tweets coming from like 10 accounts, so it's not... impossible that most of it is these two guys.
wildpeaks: kotor ?
Styxseus: @Lightningbro But it also implies: "Thats all it takes"
Saxpython: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
wildpeaks: oh right, this thing
BrowneePoints: They both lost and it's GREAT
TehAmelie: racists usually are afraid to act unless they're in a group of at least 25, but those two can probably snitch a bunch
BrowneePoints: Apple has to allow external payment processors
GapFiller: Epic infact lost most other things
Manae: not everything they wanted, but this really feels like Epic won. Though this'll really cost them
BrowneePoints: Epic actually lost the suit completely
RockPusher: The very very blatant breach of contract
kirbytronic: I read something about Epic won 1 part of their case, Apple won 9 parts? Or something?
RockPusher: It's nuanced and will presumably now move to the appeals courts
dylan16807: they court didn't decide if apple had a monopoly
TehAmelie: if Apple has to make any concessions in their quasi-monopoly i think that's the best possible outcome
BrowneePoints: Yea, they are "Non-Monopolistic but engaging in anti-competitive practices" @LoadingReadyRun
wildpeaks: I hope it will be like their ID rules: you can have external logins, but you also need to allow the option to use the built-in login
Manae: @browneepoints But it seems like they got what they want, in terms of going towards the future
Styxseus: News media hyperbole? No way LUL
Saxpython: looking forward to Graham's segment next week
PMAvers: In the end, there's only one trustworthy news source, and that's Checkpoint.
Lightningbro: It sounds like "Both of them lost" and we won.
ANeMzero: Apple is not required to let Fortnite back on the store, so while Epic won on one of 10 counts, that win only affects people who aren't Epic.
Angreed66: Based off competition changes Apple lost more
LordZarano: So people will be able to buy Twitch subs for the regular price in the ios app now?
wildpeaks: especially as Epic buys all the things
GapFiller: to give yr an idea of this practice Uber tried it too
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: but how else will company-senpai notice me? Kappa
GapFiller: Uber are not the kinda company to keep in this situ
Getter404: Epic's already appealed it. Didn't waste a MINUTE
Lord_Hosk: They will both 100% appeal
RockPusher: These sorts of things take *years* to settle
MolaMolaphant: I'm happy to let Epic Games throw as much money as they want at trying to break pseudo-monopolies
BrowneePoints: But in the short term, Jason Schreier put it simply as "Epic lost Millions, but Apple potentially just lost Billions" @LoadingReadyRun
Saxpython: <3
shendaras: Did you mention Google not paying its temp workers?
PharaohBender27: Cheer400
Styxseus: :D
GapFiller: shendaras thats not video game news
Saxpython: lol
wildpeaks: daaang
iris_of_ether: Heather layin' the law.
shendaras: True.
GapFiller: nalvLUL jlrrDang thanks Heather
Snowcookies: lol
Sarah_Serinde: Heather that is the biggest mood
TheTruePhantomAngel: Maybe I will go be a content creator Heather, fine! lrrDARK
GapFiller: cz theres a PPR on
Fanklok: #TryParrymancy
Manae: Found your own internet comedy troupe and do your own weekly gaming news segment!
PMAvers: Is this the first time Magic has been cancelled for a PPR?
Styxseus: :D
electra310: No, I'm pretty sure it's happened at least once before
shendaras: lrrHEART
Sarah_Serinde: PMAvers I'm almost completely certain it's not
kirbytronic: And he'll also be here on Sunday
Styxseus: The Wheeler just keeps turning
BlueChloroplast: SirUwU
Orgmastron: YEE-HAW
QuixoticScrivener: Wheeler is LRR
RockPusher: wheelerMuldcb wheelerClown wheelerMonkey
iris_of_ether: Ben WHeeler Power Hour. Peeler Heeler?
kirbytronic: Wheel Takes over LRR
electra310: Wheelrr
Halinn: I *do* like Whenjamin Beeler!
DeM0nFiRe: PPR PogChamp
BlueChloroplast: wheeLRR
TehAmelie: does it start at midnight?
Snowcookies: Not happening at midnight smh
niccus: will there be a day/night overlay?
PMAvers: And it just ends up being Wheeler playing more Pokemon.
wildpeaks: Ben Wheeler: The twitch channem
Lord_Hosk: I only like ben wheeler because instead of feet he has wheels. WHAT? THATS NOT TRUE? I have to reevaluate some things.
Styxseus: :D
Fanklok: Its Midnight somewhere
SarkhanGluedBackTogether: it's midnight somewhere
TehAmelie: hey, it'll be midnight in some timezones. probably mine
wildpeaks: oh no, is wheeler a werewolf
LordZarano: It starts at midnight *somewhere* in the world
GapFiller: it will be Midnight here in Albion in 15mins
aleriacarventus: yessss I miss midnight prereleases so much
Angreed66: But day is ending sooner so you need to be in before like 4pm
Spacecarl: depends on if they open good werewolves or not
PMAvers: It's basically Twilight.
wildpeaks: but is the kind of werewolf taht gives us chocolate
electra310: You could be the Unruly Mob
BrowneePoints: Meatspace Magic!
PMAvers: Turns out the vampires and werewolves will just play baseball instead.
TehAmelie: Midnight in Albion sounds like a great name for something

Seth_Erickson: That could be wrong though
Styxseus: @TehAmelie PFFF Hahaaha
Gizmoloid: Very Little Nightmares is very cool if you like the original.
Halinn: @Sarah_Serinde Whenever ceiling egg's not on screen, all of chat should be asking "Where's ceiling egg?"

Sarah_Serinde: Fanklok Yes indeed!
Fanklok: neat
Sarah_Serinde: They sing at people in Sea of Thieves and also stream other stuff when they're not busy
TehAmelie: dogs have strong beliefs about who's the big spoon and the little spoon in a cuddle https://tigercarings.tumblr.com/post/661255674956775424
mitomanox: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Wheeler attempts to take revenge on a samurai clan who attacked him and kidnapped his lord. Game: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice) at Fri 05:00 PM PDT (1:05 from now).
Fanklok: They come up on the sea shantay/irish folk station Spotify always has for me
Gizmoloid: @TehAmelie :) Ah, dogs. Such cute floofs.
TehAmelie: verily
Sarah_Serinde: They're good folks, I like hanging out in their streams :)
TehAmelie: i'd watch a streaming dog
TehAmelie: to mix up the conversations here
Sarah_Serinde: They also do a singing stream once a month over on YouTube
Sarah_Serinde: And yes dogs on streams are also very good
Gizmoloid: @TehAmelie Well, there's a between2ears channel, they stream dog walks with a camera on dog's back.
TehAmelie: ha
TehAmelie: we do have Jamie Dillon and her Ranger. whenever health permits her to stream
TehAmelie: but i was thinking a stream run by a dog. it might have a human in the background but it'd be primarily doge
TehAmelie: "just chatting" or more accurately just being a good boy
Gizmoloid: "Just woofin"
Juliamon: "just yappin'"
TehAmelie: maybe the chat posts cute pictures to entertain them
Sarah_Serinde thinks back to Owls at Desert Bus
TehAmelie: hmm i wonder if other streamers have things like niftychat
Gizmoloid: The dog would have a "On the Internet EVERYONE knows I'm a dog" poster in the background.
TehAmelie: seems like a solid concept
TehAmelie: we can do it. all we need is a dog
TehAmelie: not it, my apartment block is allergy proof
TehAmelie: i can't even have a hamster :(
Gizmoloid: Aww
TehAmelie: ironically it's my cousin who lives down the street who's allergic
