Metric_Furlong: most of chat are talking about Twitter, I think
Metric_Furlong: (whereas I'm trying to download things for the Vita, while it still has full payment functionality)
beowuuf: clearly you warned chat then graham and beej put it in checkpoint :)
Metric_Furlong: yeah, although as a slight correction, Sony haven't pulled that functionality *yet*, they've just announced they're going to at the end of the month
beowuuf: -.- "due to great custome rdemand, we've decided to hold off. on the closure." That would be an evil if brillaint move

beowuuf: i have the line "and yet you keep falling for it" in my head said by a villain but can't recall the film / show
Metric_Furlong: to be fair, I don't think we have any reason to doubt Sony if they say they want to do something that shafts the Vita in some :p
Metric_Furlong: *in some way
Metric_Furlong: source: I own a vita
CAKHost: Hi everyone
beowuuf: sergeHi
Metric_Furlong: hello CAKHost
DeM0nFiRe: The main thing that vita owners got shafted on was the stupid unreliable memory sticks that 3rd parties can't make
CAKHost: I still haven't gotten my glasses yet, i'm tired and something something else but I can't think of it because of the tired
CAKHost: Hi @beowuuf & @Metric_Furlong

CAKHost: If its taken them this long to decommission something on the Vita, I think it has a few more years left on it before it's fully abadonware
Snowcookies: ooh signal
CAKHost: Or whatever equivalent of abandonware with games as a service thingies
Metric_Furlong: vita wasn't really a 'games-as-service' console
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Heather, Beej and Paul and chat about the week's gaming news 📷 ||
DoodlestheGreat: "games as service" tends to end up as abandonware every time, anyway.
TehAmelie: if you abandon portable warez, are they homelessware?
Raiz0k: @CAKHost Probably has to do with how there's not that much of hardware architecture gap, as there was, say, between 2000 and 2010.

lirazel64: lrrARROWS
beowuuf: prepare yourself before preparing your child
Raiz0k: @DoodlestheGreat With one significant exception called "MMOs", which we are probably amazed the publishers haven't caught on to ;).

gnyrinn: Monarchs with term limits are, though.
saiarcot895: i think one town elected a dog as a mayor
PMAvers: Vote for Jar Jar

DoodlestheGreat: Elected as a Monarch Butterfly?
heyalexdaily: I got elected to student council solely on the basis of nobody but me giving a hoot.
GapFiller: ohhh Beej is twice as loud as Paul
Metric_Furlong: aside from those two minor details, though

GapFiller: thats normal in that part of the world
DoodlestheGreat: Speaking of anime, Beej, did you do your Fall Anime lineup already?
GapFiller: lots of people do that
dkosa: is there something wrong with that?
Metric_Furlong: have you ever seen Alien? that's not relevant to the birth of a song, it's just a neat film
Pteraspidomorphi: I asked a couple of days ago and was told no, DoodlestheGreat
Mai_Andra: Beej leaning for the "technically correct" caveat.
gnyrinn: Was that song that Celine Dion sang for Switzerland in Eurovission Swiss or Canadian?
DoodlestheGreat: @Pteraspidomorphi Thankee.
GapFiller: gnyrinn I see what yr did there
Mai_Andra: French, but not that French.
GapFiller: yeh open PSA for those who havent heard yet: get 2FA
GapFiller: and a password manager
Raiz0k: That *is* reasonable descriptor.
EvilBadman: Please, please the vernacular of the internet is "pwnd"
TehAmelie: is now that they have already been hacked a good time to start streaming? asking for a friend who wants to get into streaming
GapFiller: YIKES
DoodlestheGreat: And within 48 hours of them posting shade about Facebook's faceplant earlier this week on Twitter.
saiarcot895: setting us up for the sequel in this franchise
Metric_Furlong: release it in 3 installmant: part 1, part 2 and part 4
Pteraspidomorphi: "prologue"
Crokoking: split it in 2 and release it as "Part 1" and "Part 3"
Raiz0k: And +1 on the 2FA, won't alone protect you against APT-level threats as with Twitch, but you're probably not nearly as much of a target :p.
GapFiller: four part trilogy up in all this

ritchards: ah, X-Blade...
veelofar: Kingdom Hearts is my favorite game series of all time. I will defend the story to the death. I will not defend the names
PMAvers: The Chii-Blade, the Kingdom Hearts/Chobits crossover
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Ah yes, the Hobbit method.
CAKHost: I got my new glasses! :D
violetto: numbering them by powers of 2 so number 4 is part 8
BasilHunter: congrats on being relatively high ranked ?
Pteraspidomorphi: You now know the 300 or so people you need to murder to get to the top spot
RebekahWSD: It was sad to see how little some very dedicated people make
Pteraspidomorphi: I agree RebekahWSD
ArmadilloAL: Please don't murder Critical Role. That would make me sad.
GapFiller: gross in what snese? Kappa
Raiz0k: @Pteraspidomorphi But LRR is in an *ideal* spot numerically, come on!
saiarcot895: yeah, to be fair, even for the "higher" earning people, they also need to get their own healthcare, pay taxes (more than the usual paycheck taxes), etc.
DeM0nFiRe: Gross means that is how you pay for 144 of that streamer
Pteraspidomorphi: Raiz0k: They have the strength in numbers though! No one could defeat them!
PMAvers: I wonder if they have the numbers in there for how much a account has that hasn't been paid out if they havn't hit the threshhold.
ArmadilloAL: I have seen far more people defending the gross numbers than people having any sort of problem with the numbers, so clearly I'm following the wrong people.
Snowcookies: gross numbers versus petty numbers
TemporallyAwry: Yeah, my first exposure was the numbers with Critical Role, and all I can say is I hope the sponsorships and merch really bump up those numbers. Because the rental and staff alone has to eat up at least +50% of that listed number.
Raiz0k: @Pteraspidomorphi That's true, but they would then have to jump to just under 70.
beowuuf: @ArmadilloAL sounds like following the right people to me :)
PharaohBender27: OK, let's see if I can type in chat now . . .
beowuuf: hey!
Raiz0k: you can!
Crokoking: aren't there also different shares between twitch and the streamer?
ArmadilloAL: @beowuuf Honestly, at this point, probably half of them are either members of LRR or good friends with at least one of them.
GapFiller: lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE
PharaohBender27: Oh good. For a sec I was getting "You don't have permission to do that" in response to anything I typed.
Raiz0k: @Crokoking That's what Paul implied I think.
PharaohBender27: Yeeeeah
MagicalAttackGecko: yeeeee ironyyyy
Mai_Andra: I don't understand the internet hating on these people for actually making money at this.
Angnor33: What I'm curious about seeing is if, for the really large ones, are they seeing any signifigant dropoff after this.
beowuuf: @ArmadilloAL yup, it's the only reason i find twitter tolerable is because i barely follow anyone (lrr is certainly a decent chunk) and no one follows me :D
Raiz0k: Yeah, The Register made that joke in the second paragraph of their article, good thing I wasn't drinking anything at reading time.
MagicalAttackGecko: RIP Mixer
DoodlestheGreat: In the US, preventing people from sharing salary data is a FEDERAL CRIME.
PMAvers: I mean, I guess technically Facebook streams happen. For some reason.
Pteraspidomorphi: Is the Facebook one gone? I don't keep up
Juliamon: !patreon
LRRbot: 2663 patrons for a total of $19,614.88 per month.

LordZarano: Lots of streamers have merch
Raiz0k: @DoodlestheGreat And yet, remember the big tech hiring cartel from like 3 years ago?
CanPlayGames: Beej
RockPusher: Consume the Beej?
Raiz0k: The Beej will consume you anyway.
SquidVorbis: Nice hair Beej
Raiz0k: (insert drop)
TehAmelie: clearly we have been spoiled by LRR being transparent and honest and not coy about the fact that they're a professional operation
SquidVorbis: @tehamelie 'professional'
SquidVorbis: LUL
TehAmelie: "making money"
PharaohBender27: Yep, did that back on Wednesday.
MagicalAttackGecko: Hashed passwords
EvilBadman: Passwords weren't plain-text but still reset 'em anwyays
GapFiller: once agin for those up top: enable 2FA and get a password manager
saiarcot895: @MagicalAttackGecko did they actually get released though? I heard conflicting info
Nigouki: add another 69 to the end of 123password69
PharaohBender27: Did put in 2FA, though I wish it weren't as phone-centric as it is.
DoodlestheGreat: @DoodlestheGreat Yeah, and that was a fun time.
gnyrinn: Setting up 2 factor was surprisingly easy.
ArmadilloAL: This is clearly not the first time Twitch has asked me to change my password, since apparently my previous Twitch password was (paraphrased) "DisapproveOfTwitchSecurity".
saiarcot895: twitch already forced a reset of stream keys, i think
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
EikoandMog: Ooops, almost missed the chillpoint!
spurius: yeah they reseted all the stream keys
Alchemistmerlin: I wonder if they're going to lecture us about secure passwords the way they did the LAST time their own incompetence leaked our passwords LUL
Saxpython: change your password has never been bad advice
Raiz0k: No, sorry, @SquidVorbis, but LRR has always been very professional about those aspects. And they've been going at it for longer than YouTube exists, never mind Twitch, which fits other definitions of "professionalism" as well.
AshBurnem: I heard that the password list released was encrypted. So, yes.
MagicalAttackGecko: @MagicalAttackGecko last thing I read some accounts did have that leaked
spurius: I wonder if encrypted means encrypted or hashed
PharaohBender27: I've *spent* money on Twitch, but I can verify I've never earned money from it :p
Metric_Furlong: hack the planet!
CarlKolchak: whoa - Beej looking like Ambassador Mollari today
PMAvers: The third hack will be our lucky hack.
EvilBadman: the other story that G touched on is there's only 3 women in the top 100 and only 5% women in the top 1000
GapFiller: yr havta wonder abt the mentality behind that whole line of thought
DeM0nFiRe: LRR let Wheeler spend money on Yu Gi Oh, idk if I can support them anymore Kappa
saiarcot895: another streamer i watch bought a $400 toaster; someone then donated like $500 to him
Raiz0k: @EvilBadman So, around 50 in top 1000? That's just sad.
EvilBadman: Streamers are indepentent contractors most of the time, so they have SUPER FUN tax and Healthcare cots.
EikoandMog: There's also Kiryu Coco's $5000 bed.
EvilBadman: costs*
ArmadilloAL: I wonder how much of that is latent sexism and how much is "women have more important things to do with their lives that put in the hours it takes to become Twitch famous".
SquidVorbis: @evilbadman Don't forget no pensions!
SpacePotato01: Wait, I was very clear my money was only meant for buying gumdrops.
PharaohBender27: Reminds me of lrrGRAHAM 's Game Knights vlog where he was talking about someone accusing LRR of getting $60k from Friday Nights episodes, even though if that were even true, it would get eaten up by equipment/salary of a dozen people.
RebekahWSD: I have no money, but if I did, I can only wish it to rain from the sky
Laserbeaks_Fury: I gave you 10 buck for coffee, you BETTER buy some coffee
Spacecarl: This just in, streamers are people too! lrrBEEJ
MAPBoardgames: !venga
LRRbot: You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry. You'd better like to party, I'm telling you why. The Venga Bus is coming to town.
Raiz0k: Yet another aspect are all the constant (e.g. rent) and variable (e.g. new equipment) costs.
NotCainNorAbel: tarps, lots of tarps
TemporallyAwry: I know Hermitcraft had to deal with a bunch of people throwing a fit that individual members are doing sponsorships now. It's just weird to feel you need to make known "you don't like X and are taking your money elsewhere" - it's just so weird.
EikoandMog: I toss you guys $5 a month. idgaf what you do with it.
Raiz0k: All that good audiovisual hardware ain't free, and neither is a place to stream.
Saxpython: lol
Snowcookies: what about wrestler Kofi Kingston
saiarcot895: LUL

EvilBadman: I keep giving money to only fans and I'm not seeing any fan installation videos. >.<

GapFiller: yeh nevermind the money how abt the code eh
ArmadilloAL: I only give LRR Bezos Bucks, because everything else I *would* give LRR goes to Desert Bus instead.
echo__aj: I hear it’s a New Day!
ArmadilloAL: Oh yeah, and merch. They have the best playmat I've ever used.
GhostValv: D:
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, "Vapor", that's a bombshell and a half!
gnyrinn: Codenames are often on the nose: See Project Midway.
Blue_Link13: Vapor is the name I would give my steam ripoff on Game Dev Tycoon
PMAvers: Oh yeah, the Amazon thing got folded into the Curse thing and then Curse exploded or something
couldntpickausername: oh right, I should check the free games on amazon this month, thanks for reminding me Paul
TehAmelie: my parents never gave me money i had to spend on anything essential. conversely, when i made money of my own i gave it to them to run the household for us all. it's a wonder i ever adapted to living on my own
saiarcot895: access control?
Raiz0k: In fairness, the "help-with-git-flows" utilities have a storied tradition of having silly names.
Raiz0k: That's because git itself is silly :p.
Saxpython: Feels Insider Man
RockPusher: The Principle of Least Privilege
lirazel64: @tehamelie That sounds like a good prep for living on your own, tbh.

LurkerSpine: "Microsoft Points" when they were trying the alt currencies to hide how much money you were spending
LurkerSpine: I'm very glad that's gone
Laserbeaks_Fury: At least it's still 1-1 cash values
Metric_Furlong: note that this change will be implemented on the 27th of October; as of right now you can still purchase directly through it
Blue_Link13: Don't forget the WiiPoints too!
NullColaShip: Some kind of cart in the Switch shop would be nice. I bought 3 games in the recent sale, and had to go through the purchase flow for each individually...
RockPusher: The Steam wallet I think is more tied to needing to be there for the Steam Marketplace
Blue_Link13: Yeah, Steam Wallet is also where your refunds happen
Raiz0k: @LurkerSpine In that incarnation, sure, but there's a reason every "free to play" mobile game has its own version of "gold".
veelofar: Sure do love games that become completely unusable and inaccessible when the server shuts down.
EikoandMog: "Microsoft points" made me just never use the online store because I fucking hated having 'wasted' money.
LurkerSpine: Right to Repair laws need to happen
Raiz0k: Preach!
GapFiller: all is impermenance yes
PharaohBender27: @LurkerSpine I remember lrrIAN talking about that earlier this year
GapFiller: for worse as much as for better but it is the Spirt of the Age
RockPusher: Depending on your jurisdiction, that may be covered by consumer protection laws
saiarcot895: @LurkerSpine this might need a bit more than right to repair, because isn't that more for physical hardware?
TemporallyAwry: The anti-consumer behavior will continue into law-suits reach critical mass.
Raiz0k: Oh, yeah, Sonos, Nest....
PMAvers: Or you could have a 3G Vita and it could be screaming at you constantly about how it can't connect

veelofar: They want to be able to sell you the same thing over and over again, because they can't play their old stuff anymore
PharaohBender27: @DoodlestheGreat No problem! :)
ArmadilloAL: Shoot, I wasn't subbed? Guess I need to keep better tabs on my Prime sub. Thanks.
LurkerSpine: @saiarcot895 In most cases, honestly, right to repair is also about software. John Deere has some f***ing vile software running on their machines, that makes it impossible to fix your tractor or whatever, even if you have the part
LordZarano: The "Bus Factor", but for companies
PharaohBender27: @ArmadilloAL No problem! :) Think of it as another $5 saved for DB ;)
Godeke: That sounds like anything Corel.
GapFiller: The Reality You Are Trying To Reach No Longer Exists Eh Paul
ArmadilloAL: As an employee of a company that makes parts for John Deere? Yes, please let more people buy those parts.
saiarcot895: @LurkerSpine yeah fair, I know some stuff about John Deere and farmers using Ukranian firmware or something
Raiz0k: @LurkerSpine Which is trickling into automotive as well. But yeah, agri is pretty much attempting to pull a Company Town™ on the entire world.

dkosa: I remember html code being able to change the way internet explorer looked (like the scroll bar and things that shouldn't have been allowed)
LurkerSpine: this metaphor is... wild
Mai_Andra: Pfft. nub.
t3h_f1gm3nt: beej im not liking this visual metaphore
Earthenone: i was expecting beej to end up flipping off the camera during that bit
AveryCorvus: This metaphor is getting a bit stubby
MagicalAttackGecko: jlrrPillow_SG
GapFiller: this right here is why ChillPoint lasts 2 hours these days
GapFiller: and its why we tune in every week
GapFiller: more of this plz
ACookTooMany: depending on what you want, a fist and a nub are pretty similar
Mai_Andra: "In conclusion: ahem... Deez Nutz."
lirazel64: Beej, I don't own *any* game platforms. I just want to know if you or Heather is going to win the hair race.
Raiz0k: Oh, come, Heather, Beej has at least two goes before we can count that as "overuse" ;).
drcthulu: it's the troll within the troll
beowuuf: i riled people up? lrrBEEJ
RockPusher: fugiWow
LurkerSpine: @Raiz0k I'm terrified about GM's plans to do subscription services. We already have leases already, what are they planning on?
lion_byte: i no longer wish to live in interesting times
niccus: the Ignobel motto, right? If you didn't make it on, but especially if you made it on, better luck next time
LordZarano: They put that on themselves
Manae: I feel the curse was self inflicted
t3h_f1gm3nt: SEGUE
Raiz0k: @LurkerSpine "You will own nothing, and you'll be happy", of course :p.
Saxpython: FBtouchdown lrrSHINE FBtouchdown
markvd: sora is finally on the Smash Mouth band
Raiz0k: @lion_byte We really do need to find the source of that curse, huh?
t3h_f1gm3nt: seriously though, sakurai and his team have done and amazing job and i hope he now rests for a million years like he deserves
TheMerricat: so is someone who is only peripherally followed the whole smash saga is this the last game forever?
Juliamon: He's a Japanese game dev, he's *not* taking vacations
LurkerSpine: Japanese work culture is crazy. Too many directors/mangaka/etc dying before their time.
PMAvers: Maybe it's time for them to do ARMS 2.
Raiz0k: Yeah, +1 on TheMerricat's question.
t3h_f1gm3nt: @TheMerricat no. it might be the last one sakurai works on, but there has been no definitive thing on this being the last smash game
veelofar: I hope this is the end for Smash. I really don't want to put him through that again, and I don't trust anyone else with it.
Too_Many_Knives: Like TVTropes
goombalax: that's why Miyazaki can't retire
EvilBadman: It's also why like Magic R&D does not want to hear your card ideas at all
Raiz0k: @Too_Many_Knives Be careful when invoking The Great Satan ;).
GapFiller: printers projectors matresses whats the diff
Invitare: older than he looks
t3h_f1gm3nt: i think in his 40s?
Invitare: he's one of those men that doesn't age
RockPusher: There is no ideal printer. The are all Satan spawn.
EvilBadman: 51.
GapFiller: them Oriental genes Beej
veelofar: Sakurai is 10k years old
GapFiller: we dont age
Cephallope: Sakurai confirmed human
Invitare: he made Kirby
PMAvers: Honestly, if the next console just has Smash Ultimate Complete (now with Rollback Netcode), I'd be fine with that.
Invitare: he doesn't like making sequels
Invitare: though I for one would love another Sakurai's Kid Icarus
EvilBadman: He's got Kirby games to voice
TehAmelie: gesundheit
gnyrinn: Switch Successor. The Nintendo Router?
ArmadilloAL: If we get another Smash game, can we get Nintendo to retroactively name the Switch one Smash Brothers Penultimate?
DoodlestheGreat: "I'm going to work on porting Barbie's Horse Adventures to Switch!"
veelofar: He said that Brawl was the last Smash game he was working on, so who knows
t3h_f1gm3nt: i think he has said "he has no plans on working on any more smash games, but he wasn't saying that he wouldnt"
EvilBadman: They'll light the beacons like in Two Towers
Raiz0k: :D :D :D
PMAvers: Sakurai looks up to the sky, and the sun has been replaced by the flaming Smash logo
PharaohBender27: katesLol
lirazel64: Harvesting wild Wasabi, no doubt.
EvilBadman: @PMAvers Yep, that's it
GapFiller: isnt that kinda racist Beej?
LurkerSpine: the MASH theme starts playing
Saxpython: Ship It
Raiz0k: Y-y-y-eah, lot's of rice paddies in the *mountains*....
Saxpython: lrrHORN lrrSHINE lrrHORN
corpocracy: I think it would be difficult to ever top this roster, though. I think that's why it's such a big deal
GapFiller: thats kinda racist Beej
AveryCorvus: Honestly that would make a great announce trailor for a new smash on the next console
MrMatternot: Harvest Moon
ritchards: Hey, Thanos became a farmer!
Raiz0k: Rice paddies are friggin' intensive farming for one thing :p.
t3h_f1gm3nt: yeah i know sakurai and other people who worked on Smash Ultimate that no smash game in the future would include this big of a roster
Raiz0k: There's better crops you'd grow when relaxing :p.
Saxpython: Get 'em Heather
lion_byte: he will finally settle down and play Stardew Valley
Earthenone: so hes playing yajuza, got it
bokochaos: Hironobu Sakaguchi did a rice-based collab years ago for a Mistwalker mobile game. There is video out there of him planting rice
MrMatternot: Artists are not their art

Raiz0k: Again, what's the longevity on those cartridges?
Raiz0k: Anyone measured that?
Dascylus: "Hello, you need 4 Gameboy Advances to completely enjoy this game"
LarkSachrosis: Still have my GBC somewhere, OG Gameboy got ruined by a cousin ages ago, no idea what happened to my GB Pocket.
LordZarano: I learned recently that there was a game boy with a backlight called the game boy light
Raiz0k: I mean they're solid state.
Raiz0k: Heh, exactly.
LarkSachrosis: My little sister has our grandmas old NES, it still works.
t3h_f1gm3nt: i think the only issue with a lot of those old cartridges are the ones with batteries for keeping saves tend to die out
MrMatternot: You can set pallettes in Super GB
t3h_f1gm3nt: so the games would still work but it owuldn't keep saves
Raiz0k: ^and hence the question, because solid state stuff in this incarnation has potentially lots of deceptive failure modes.
LurkerSpine: couldn't you change the colors on the GBC?
Raiz0k: Huh, "red outline" is an interesting one.
LurkerSpine: at least for non gbc-designed games
zuchen_120: !next

Juliamon: LurkerSpine Only on the Super Game Boy I think
TemporallyAwry: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 3:04 PM
Juliamon: at least I remember being excited about cycling through palettes on SGB
Raiz0k: The other aspect I *suspect* is the physical fragility thing, in that whether the I/O will last longer than the storage.
Saxpython: @Juliamon +1
LarkSachrosis: Sounds like a good way to release the blue smoke
MrUglama: million dollar idea
Saxpython: @LurkerSpine lrrSHINE
MrUglama: nvm then
Manae: I'm pretty sure non-GBC color games were still monochrome, they just were "color and white" instead of "sepia and white"
EvilBadman: it perfect system
Raiz0k: So, like Hercules etc.?
Juliamon: Hunh.
misskale: they had the green one as a normal edition without halo in Canada
Cephallope: Why bother doing it if they'll look like normal sneakers?
t3h_f1gm3nt: you mean the BEST GBC color?!
PharaohBender27: Yeah, when lrrBEEEJ specified PURPLE
t3h_f1gm3nt: no im not biased because thats the one i owned lrrBEEJ
Saxpython: <- has lime green GBC
goombalax: I had the purple gbx
goombalax: gbc
lion_byte: purple = green
Juliamon: My sister had the lime green one. I had the Pikachu edition.
PharaohBender27: lunarj1Heart
EikoandMog: *shakes fist*
Saxpython: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh yeah I noticed that
EvilBadman: That's a good editor right there
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's very Duck Amuck
MrUglama: sadly, i got the blueish transparent GBA, now its a murky green
t3h_f1gm3nt: from a front view: yes pocket and GBC are almost indistinguishable. but side view its very obvious
Agu_Sakku: Color Gamedoy, and Gameboy Color.....
LordZarano: bottom left corner is different but yeah
Ba_Dum_Tish: Heather's handhelds continues
Saxpython: @PharaohBender27 A+ clip title
t3h_f1gm3nt: i was envious of my friend owning a pocket GB, even when i owned a GBC. yes, i got to play in color, but the pocket was SO THING and fit in pockets so well!
t3h_f1gm3nt: *THIN even
dkosa: my parents got me a colour pocket gameboy, thinking they were getting me a gameboy colour lol
Raiz0k: The hand the hand the hand....
PharaohBender27: katesLol
MrUglama: i expected you guys to cover the video from that villager from animal crossing
Raiz0k: Hand counterattack!
Agu_Sakku: Crash the stream again lol
Gaz_L: just imagine Guile's Theme

Laserbeaks_Fury: The Sega Master was really damn good
Raiz0k: I'm continually impressed about the amount of effort that goes into retrocomputing.
saiarcot895: similar thing with speedrunning games and finding glitches, i think; new methods are being discovered for older games somewhat frequently
GapFiller: isnt this similar to the logic behind NASA using old tech?
Laserbeaks_Fury: That's why I'd be fine if consoles decided to take 10 years between generations
Raiz0k: > Load Unity > Load Asset Store > Mix up > Publish
GapFiller: why use the latest state of the art when yr can use something old yr know back to front
ArmadilloAL: I just watched a YT video about how the AI was coded to handle trades in Monopoly in the NES, and the amount of work it took to get the NES to do something as simple as "divide the amount of cash a player has by 20"...
RockPusher: GapFiller NASA old tech is more around the time taken to validate things
t3h_f1gm3nt: Doomguy and Isabelle can FINALLY hang out and its great! lrrHEART
Saxpython: OMG yes the hair
Juliamon: I loved the Doom twitter celebrating Doomabelle
RockPusher: It was state of the art when the validation started, then years pass until the mission occurs
Raiz0k: @GapFiller "NASA using old tech" has the aspect of hardware hardening, in that for any time period, the tech of the time has to be specifically, bespoke adapted to survive in space.
GapFiller: RockPusher it feels they are dfft aspects of the same psychic territory; its all abt being able to trust the tech
AveryCorvus: Show Kirby feet
GhostValv: D:
lion_byte: Kirby: "You mean the Door to Darkness?"
t3h_f1gm3nt: BEEJ NO NotLikeThis
MagicalAttackGecko: you cant stop me
RockPusher: Though nowadays space hardware favours old stuff because old stuff is less susceptible to cosmic interference
Raiz0k: BEEJ YES
Nigouki: I think I actually know what pic Beej is talking about....
t3h_f1gm3nt: cloud versions DansGame
RockPusher: (physically bigger transistors and the like)
DeM0nFiRe: Gross
t3h_f1gm3nt: hitman 3 for switch is cloud based ye
Laserbeaks_Fury: I didn't think Cloud was in Kingdom Hearts all that much
ArmadilloAL: To be fair, KH has always been a Cloud game feen7
Raiz0k: FootYellow
goombalax: cloud is pretty cool but I'd prefer a sephiroth based system
Blue_Link13: Like, I get clouding KH3, but the other titles? The switch can run them
PharaohBender27 suddenly feels the need to look up the area size of Japan and Vancouver Island
EvilBadman: @Blue_Link13 Short answer is they likely weighed porting vs just hosting it
t3h_f1gm3nt: @Blue_Link13 i think its more they wouldnt' fit on the carts? but i think even that is BS
PMAvers: I assume it's less the processing power and more that they're fairly large storage-wise.
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 Even just Honshu is bigger than Vancouver Island in any case, for anyone guessing :).
t3h_f1gm3nt: consoles from 3 GENERATIONS AGO
PMAvers: My memory's a bit fuzzy, but I think KH3 was something like 50+ gigs?
PharaohBender27: @PharaohBender27 Yeah, just confirmed Japan is 12x larger - it just seemed distressingly plausible enough :p
Blue_Link13: @t3h_f1gm3nt Exactly. Square even solved that problem by making the part of the game that doesn't fit a download a la FFX
Saxpython: yeah the handhelds and mobiles
niccus: here's a size comparison of japan and vancouver island
t3h_f1gm3nt: i mean they already reprogrammed them to work on other consoles so wouldnt it just be remapping buttons? or am i a big dumb?
PMAvers: Looks like the PC version of KH3 was 75 gigs.
gnyrinn: Porting software to a new hardware/OS is either a piece of cake or unbelievably hard, never anything in between.
EvilBadman: @t3h_f1gm3nt Nothing in tech is ever "they can just"
TheMerricat: every console needs a different set of changes to the code to make it work
t3h_f1gm3nt: @EvilBadman i mean fair but in this instance i guess im just ignorant on what else it would entail when they have ALREADY ported to something that would work similar mechanically
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 Mostly due to the perils of Mercator projection probably :).
PharaohBender27: @PharaohBender27 Actually, more my vaguely recalling knowing how comparatively small Japan is, and my learning how big Vancouver Island is :p
DeM0nFiRe: Kingdom Hearts has evoplved past the need for words
EvilBadman: @t3h_f1gm3nt Truthfully, I don't either, but it's definitely not as easy as we'd all hope it to be
TheMerricat: @t3h_f1gm3nt The problem is you probably have assets that you can reuse now but the code isn't something that really is ever portable one-to-one to a new console. Even if you have a high level version of the code you have to be able to abstract that down to the specific hardware of the console That's usually the hardest part of porting things to new consoles is getting the code to be compatible with the different hardware
gnyrinn: @PharaohBender27 I move that the Mercator Projection be hereafter referred to as The Flemish Cylinder of Lies.
t3h_f1gm3nt: @TheMerricat ok THAT makes more sense to me and is valid
EvilBadman: IIRC, the KH1 and 2 collections each work off a unified launcher
RockPusher: Key
NonjaBiru: I think it's Chi
niccus: chi
PMAvers: I keep on expecting Ben Ulmer to pop his head into the call. "Did someone need KH Info?"
Pteraspidomorphi: chi
MAPBoardgames: Kingdom Hearts: bananafanafofana
RockPusher: or Chi
Gaz_L: Chi but they say it key
EvilBadman: Chi, but "key" cause puns
Juliamon: I *love* KH's ridiculous naming habits
Invitare: Stop. The English language can't take any more of this
Drasvin: The greek letter chi
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 Probably Japan "small in comparison with the population" vs Vancouver Island "large in comparison with neighboring continental areas" eh :)?
RockPusher: rayfkKing
EvilBadman: Unified launcher :D
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 @gnyrinn : if you have my compass.
GhostValv: DS
DeM0nFiRe: GBA as well Chain of Memories

CAKHost: 8C
DeM0nFiRe: Stuff on Switch is always more expensive though
Raiz0k: Yeah, what's that in NOKs?
nimrickz: switch game don't go on sale....
TheMerricat: 40 bucks but it's a $10 a month subscription to keep being able to play it
Dalrint: Cloud-based games feel llike such a scam...
EvilBadman: It's not on the eshop with a price yet. I'd guess 60 USD
Saxpython: @TheMerricat :(
CAKHost: @EvilBadman Yeah I was checking that first
CAKHost: Though is this a physical collection? Will there be a digital release?
Agu_Sakku: I stopped ate PS3/360. Havent gotten anything since...
Raiz0k: Ah, so around 1000 NOK.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I confused, what's that in Norwegian Krone
DeM0nFiRe: If they chjarge $120 for cloud based games that have been out for a long time, such bullshit. I believe it, but it's such shit
thegitrogsquirrel: what is that in Norwegian kroner
Raiz0k: @thegitrogsquirrel just said ^
MrMatternot: Was KH successful in telling it's story?
Mysticman89: kojima and cutscenes, KH and ???
thegitrogsquirrel: @thegitrogsquirrel ahh thank you
Metric_Furlong: it's the 'airline food' of game comedy
goombalax: 365/2
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's not even weird, it's just confusing
Gaz_L: KH3 technically starts as KH 2.9
fiftymcnasty: it was short
CrazymattCaptain: is KH harder or easier to follow than Homestuck?
Shigamori: Actually, .2 was pretty short
EikoandMog: Much, MUCH easier than Homestuck
CururuGuasu: It was all worth it for the 2.9 gag
Metric_Furlong: CrazymattCaptain harder than Homestuck
niccus: someone explain fate/stay to me
GapFiller: 4 RPG's
LordZarano: As I understand it the .5 releases are the compilations
Metric_Furlong: but easier than dot.Hack
Blue_Link13: 0.2 is actually vert short. about 2 hours
GapFiller: niccus its really v simple... Kappa
Shigamori: oh, explain fate/stay? Hey, you know that historical figure? GIve them boobs
PMAvers: And let's not forget all the retcons
BrindleBoar: eh, .hack is several interconnected series, you don't *really* need to obey the exact order
PharaohBender27: "How did they not get sued out of existence!?"
EikoandMog: They literally fake-out kill Goofy in 2.
Metric_Furlong: Homestuck is weird, but it's largely self-contained; it's just very, very, long
TheMerricat: the ultimate fanfic
GapFiller: Metric_Furlong thats a pretty hefty 'just'
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 A succinct summary.
GapFiller: its like saying the Great Wall is just v long
gualdhar: oh no Beej can do the math in his head now
TheMerricat: not if you grow it
Mysticman89: Homestuck also kinda owns it's complicated-ness, while [I have not played KH but I don't know that it makes fun of itself for being complicated]
Metric_Furlong: GapFiller I mean, to follow the story you read all the pages in numerical order. KH jumps around a lot and the chronological postioning of the various games in it is not easy to infer from the names
Arikell: So it Wasn't frog fractions?
Earthenone: does it take AAA batteries?
LordZarano: And there were calculator speedruns, because of course
saiarcot895: @LordZarano and one guy broke his wrist over it
GapFiller: just like irl watches then
Saxpython: incoming Beej prop comedy
LordZarano: @saiarcot895 oof. How?
MAPBoardgames: AAA clock? Do you set an alarm then it pushes the alarm time back whenever you get close unless you stay up late every day for a month?
GapFiller: phunny story look into why luxury watches are more xpensive than regular watches sometime
EikoandMog: I have one of those!
GapFiller: yr might be surprised by the answer
saiarcot895: @LordZarano speedrunning to 1000. I guess the way he was pushing the buttons on the controller was wrong
EikoandMog: It was an impule purchase but not one that I regret.
Metric_Furlong: GapFiller because they're status symbols where 'being expensive' is the point?
Mollylele: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:40:29.
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Because people just collectively agreed that they were expensive watches? :p

RockPusher: GPS-accurate clock
PharaohBender27: Reminder that lrrPAUL has been repping Dawn Guard this WHOLE YEAR
saiarcot895: i have a $25 projection clock that also tells the temperature; good enough for me
GapFiller: v good way to endrun planned obsolescence that
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, it's November soon....
Earthenone: !dbcountdown
LRRbot: Desert Bus for Hope will begin at Fri 12 Nov 10:00 AM PST (34d, 19:14 from now)
electra310: bus is coooomming
LordZarano: I have a clock screensaver on my phone when it's plugged in. It's very handy
niccus: it trains you to be a clock
PharaohBender27: I remember the highlight reel bits of that game
TheMerricat: lawsuits...
Raiz0k: In the way a smoke grenade has a "connection" to the thrower.
PharaohBender27: WutFace
notthepenguins: why was that... in game...

MrUglama: awww man, not the love rockert
Manae: Some of the removals are weird, but I feel like they're being removed because they were used to harass in the office at some point
Spacecarl: From what I saw said by some devs, they could have been put in by some of the objectional people who have left
Saxpython: NotLikeThis VoteNay NotLikeThis
Agu_Sakku: I miss the old Troll taunt....

Spacecarl: They did say they are adding an incubus model finally.
veelofar: They're roommates!
notthepenguins: otoh the Twin Imperions/Empyreons/whatever is a pretty rad name
Spacecarl: Also, the twin Consorts were the only two females of their species, which makes it worse.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Black Temple is soooo old
notthepenguins: yikes
Invitare: Prince Philip was the Consort of the Monarch, officially
Gaz_L: Yeah, some of these are full on "well, i guess we can't say hello to women" willful misunderstanding of the issue
DoodlestheGreat: The Twin Just Seeing Each Other On The Side. ForeverAlone
Raiz0k: It's still bait, meant to deflect the attention from all the f***ery they've been doing to show "hey, we're all prim and proper now!".
Gaz_L: plus, yeah, cleaning up random lines of lore instead of actually fixing the workplace culture is very not good
saiarcot895: that's a lot of effort for a clock

Tiber727: The team said it wasn't management that told them to do this. But this feels like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

SpoonfullOfSugar: First to Market
Arikell: clearly plagiarism
CAKHost: Wait... if I pay for the AAA clock game with the points, I don't have to pay the tax? Does that make sense?
CAKHost: Or gold coins, I guess
Raiz0k: @Tiber727 They haven't told them, they just been suggestively doing execution impersonations every time they passed them in the corridor ;).
Earthenone: what is a stopwatch if not a clock running backwards
saiarcot895: you mean timer @Earthenone ?
MagicalAttackGecko: OH THIS
Raiz0k: Oh yes, again.
MAPBoardgames: I play that game from time to time
Too_Many_Knives: Three times!
Tiber727: @Tiber727 Maybe, but it's also a phenomenon where people want to do *something* in a crisis even if it's pointless. Like buying stupid amounts of toilet paper.
Raiz0k: @Too_Many_Knives Wait, three?
PharaohBender27: Oh dear, did someone else leak classified data?
EikoandMog: If I had a nickel for every time military secrets got shared to 'fix' tanks in a video game, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot but it's weird that it happened twice.
MagicalAttackGecko: (was it the same person this time?)
EikoandMog: (French this time)
GapFiller: oh the tank thing
MagicalAttackGecko: awwww
PharaohBender27: katesPalm
saiarcot895: LUL
GapFiller: jlrrFacepalm
TheMerricat: at least we've gotten past the stories of actual game devs being arrested for espionage because they were trying to get better info for their games
saiarcot895: is that game subconsciously convincing people to post confidential tank information online or something?
Raiz0k: @Tiber727 Of course, but in this case you're at least pretending to protect yourself, and not the higher ups who have no intrinsic motivation to protect you in response.
PharaohBender27: "This bullshit AGAIN!?"
RockPusher: Turns out tankies are intense
Too_Many_Knives: At least 3 times based on Reddit discussions
Amentur: Apparently it's the third time comdivySIP
Raiz0k: @RockPusher Depend on the kind of "tankies" ;).
SpacePotato01: good model tanks are pretty expensive
LarkSachrosis: Yeah, didn't someone do this with jetplanes?
Plasterboard: It is all about "being right on the internet" and that's all
ghyllnox: So this person is driving a tank for work, and then they go home and play a game where they drive the tank and they're upset it's not the same?
JoannaTastic: @saiarcot895 "The easiest way to get accurate tank specs is not to ask for them, but to publish a game with inaccurate tank specs." - Ward Cunningham, probably

Loonatic93: Pro Athletes play sports games all of the time.
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
notthepenguins: I've known some tank trained folks and they are massive nerds for military stuff outside of that too
kdefinition: i mean, people drive cars & play racing games
Raiz0k: I mean, note the connection to the developers of War Thunder and the sources of the leaks :p.
Spacecarl: They just want this game to practice, but can't do it if it's not accurate
Saxpython: yea real tank mech energy
veelofar: I don't know about other countries, Paul, but I know the US military specifically conditions people to be MORE aggressive and MORE controled by their anger.
MAPBoardgames: Warthunder is also a video game. You actually get to go out and shoot other people
TehAmelie: i remember when Guitar Hero came out pro musicians would complain about how unrealistic/easy/hard it was
Too_Many_Knives: ITAR for one
Arikell: So many NDA's
Raiz0k: @veelofar That depends on the combat role, doesn't it?
CAKHost: Heather, can you tell your thunder to go away? It's very loud here!
markvd: also, if you enjoy your job, imagine doing it without any physical stress
Raiz0k: Twice!
veelofar: @veelofar As a friend of a former tank driver, it counts for this one.
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, remember F-19?
Athelgar: did anything ever come about from the Pokemon Go data of secret military bases?
TehAmelie: the Dr Stranglove team was questioned by the army, i believe, because of how accurately they had speculated the interior of a bomb plane looked
