GDwarf: E is the true ending, and it does lovely things with player/character interaction
Macheya: Just remember, Cavia hates you from the grave.
ArtofDaDress: or is it all tinkerbots
LoadingReadyRun: Such thiccness
PMAvers: Probably going to start up Tales of Berseria instead, had that backlogged for a while
Kramburger: Man, I watch the replay of the Life is Strtange streams last week and I'm still not sure if I'm okay
Pimptimus_Prime: Man, everybody ismgoing to be in the Defenders except Punisher and Kingpin... Even Malcolm is in it!
ArtofDaDress: Noice
RoastedGravy: Ohai Alex.
GDwarf: PMAvers: ToB is an excellent game
ArtofDaDress: meanwhile, i revisited Dishonored 2 after giving it a break, and im nearing the end for the first time
ArtofDaDress: its rly good
RoastedGravy: Is it bad I just noticed it was Alex because he said “thiccness?”
GDwarf: PMAvers: Also, there's a mod for the PC release of N:A that fixes the resolution nonsense
Kramburger: @Pimptimus_Prime To be fair, he's Jessica's neighbour, so there's a legit reason for him to be seen
Macheya: I still have to beat Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the hardest mode.
Kramburger: Cam says Thicccc
Kramburger: Thiccccccc
GDwarf: Trails in the Sky The 3rd just got its English release, so that'll be eating my time
ArtofDaDress: after i mess around in NG+, im gona try Dishonored 2 on No Powers mode on Very Hard with No HUD
LoadingReadyRun: I am cam'sman
ArtofDaDress: im looking forward to is
Kramburger: SURE
LoadingReadyRun: doop doop science
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: yay a cam'smn
ArtofDaDress: Thi-k-k
PMAvers: Probably will end up skipping TS, though, since I do eventually *want* to play it through.
wildpeaks: Is someone doing Science in here ?
sopranocat: I think anything where you have to ge through a significant portion before you really start enjoying it is bad design. I mean, I've used that for books for 25 years. Certainly something that's supposed to be interactive should be geting you interested in interacting pretty quick off the bat.

Noodles_15: How do you feel about dogs?
Kramburger: Okay Cam, say something sciency
ArtofDaDress: Well, im getting a degree in physics
Pimptimus_Prime: @kramburger And he's kinda became her assistant at the end of season 1. :-)
LoadingReadyRun: dogs are scientifically inferior
ArtofDaDress: i just found out my cooleg is fully paid for as of now
ArtofDaDress: so thats neat
GDwarf: PMAvers: I mean, the first 2/3rds aren't all that spoiler-y, but the final 1/3rd is all about twisting your interpretation of past events
Juliamon: it checks out
Kramburger: Story checks out
Juliamon: toe to tip that's a cam
Dmc3628: dogs should be obliterated by Braun Strowman
Contiguouskittycat: Cats are the alpha species.
Kramburger: No doubt
ArtofDaDress: what about in a combat setting? unless youre counting mountain cats, dogs pretty much win
Dmc3628: especially that one BIG dog in particular
Kramburger: I'm fostering three Giger kitten right now and GODDAMN they're cute
Kramburger: *ginger
Juliamon: "Giger kitten" oh my
GDwarf: Giger Kittens: Radiactivity has never been so cute!
Kramburger: Shhhh you
sopranocat: I just watched a 2-part Nature that spent a decent percentage explaining how, evolutionarily, cats are scientifically proven superior to dogs.
jonnykefka: Giger kittesn probably less cute, assuming we're talking HR Giger
Djshire: they make Giger cats now? Do they have whip tails? I'll take 5
WabisabiEvan: Sadly to me NieR sounds like that indie art film all my friends are raving about when I'm just in the mood to watch a gory martial arts/action flick. Nothing wrong with NieR just so far from my cup of tea right now.
sopranocat: I Greatly Approved
Karfsma778: My sealed pool is so garbage
GDwarf: WabisabiEvan: It starts out as a pretty bog-standard robutts fighting machines game
GDwarf: It's towards the end that things get..."fun"
Pimptimus_Prime: @kramburger Oh dear GAWD! I want one righ.... Oh, ginger. dang. One day I will live my dream/horrible horrible nightmare...

ArtofDaDress: Any word on what Arkane Studios is working on right now? anything dishonored related?
Macheya: @WabisabiEvan Nier is definitely the Ip Man of the movie genre.
sopranocat: @GDwarf Um......robots =/= machines????? How?
Djshire: !not next
GDwarf: sopranocat: Ehehehehehehehehe
sopranocat: I mean, not all machines are robots, but robots are machines......~brain hurts~
EikoandMog: Machine Lifeform != Android.
Pimptimus_Prime: @sopranocat Haven't you seen At the World's End? Robot just means Slave...
GDwarf: I'm gonna get a lot of use out of that evil cackle this stream
ArtofDaDress: Robot = slave. machine = not-a-slave robot
sopranocat: Oh god, is Nier one of those "science fiction" means "wibbly wobbly jello science"?
WabisabiEvan: GDwarf I know but I've also heard that the story is good but kind of depressing and I just am not in the mood to play a game several times even if from different povs to get the full experience. Maybe the movie analogy wasn't perfect but all the praises I hear just sound like the opposite of what I want right now. Well... aside from it being cool that's always appreciated.
GDwarf: I mean, yes, "RUR", the play that coined the term "robot" for a machine is using a Czech term for slave
Pimptimus_Prime: @kramburger Daaaw, dey is adoeable kittehs d'oh.
Kramburger: @Pimptimus_Prime Right?
GDwarf: WabisabiEvan: The game definitely gets very dark, and I get not being in the mood for that
GDwarf: I can't say more without spoilers, and the stream hasn't started yet, so I'll refrain from those
All_mankind: i think the word has evolved a bit since then
Pimptimus_Prime: @kramburger I bet those little suckers cuddle up real good!
ArtofDaDress: I just like bein a badass. thats why i play dishonored on easy to relax :P
Juliamon: a GIS for "giger kitten" has mostly disappointed... but still turned up plenty of cute kitten images
WabisabiEvan: GDwarf thanks like I said it sounds like a very cool game just not the one I want to play right now.

WabisabiEvan: I won't mind watching it on stream though.
Djshire: GDwarf exactly
ArtofDaDress: Castlevania 64 peeved me off, cuz if you played on easy, and got to the midway point of the game, it'd say "you need to be playing on normal or higher to proceed" so you basically just wasted 12 hours of your life
Lord_Hosk: Guys, did you know that if you stacked up soda cans from the earth to the moon...
GDwarf: Oh, I *hate* that, ArtofDaDress
sopranocat: @GDwarf Okay, when you say "dark", how dark? I mean, I was blindsided when we got into the end of Undertale and they're like "lol, friend baby human died and everyone was sad so now baby monster is killing everyone LOLOLOL"
Kramburger: @ArtofDaDress Wait, WHAT?

sopranocat: Everybody talked about Undertale, no one mentioned it was dark
EikoandMog: @sopranocat As in, complete and total mental breakdown "dark"
GDwarf: sopranocat: I...I'm not gonna spoil stuff just yet, but it gets *dark*. I...wouldn't call it depressing, though, is all I'll say.
All_mankind: aw, i thought we had the solution to orbital elevators there
sopranocat: And when I said that to my friends, they all looked at me like I was crazy and it's not dark
weldar93: People did compare Undertale to Earthbound a lot, which is know for getting dark at the end
Lord_Hosk: Sorry All_mankind
Djshire: sopranocat we should talk about how Undertale swept a sub-plot about genetic experimentation that went wrong under the rug so easily

GDwarf: Yoko Taro's previous games, every single one, had incredibly depressing endings. Drakenguard, Drakenguard 3, and NieR (original flavour) have your heroes tend towards dooming the world and/or being erased from existence/trapped in eternal torment for trying to do the right thing.

MousseFilledCat: was really hoping to do dishes while watching
sopranocat: Most games I've played the only thing that really changes in difficulty are how long the fights take. And since most games I've never found the fighting the interesting part of the's kinda silly.......I wouldn't mind if they had actually interesting puzzles or platforming or other levels of challenge besides "HIT IT A LOT"

Juliamon: Our ship can do sick pirouettes
Djshire: What is a "shmup" game?
wildpeaks: Goes to show the entire world is a simulation and we're all running inside Alex's brain
weldar93: Is Yoko Taro actually Alex under the mask?
Macheya: The people who made this should make a Gundam game.
MC_GigglePants: Shoot em up
sleepyham: i love that the game genre switches are appropriate to the story and aesthetics
nihilist_twitch_user: Don't be upset-y, just pirouette-y.
Dandinstorm12: crunch
Pandastirfry: i've kind of stopped listening to Yahtzee
EikoandMog: @Djshire SHoot eM UO
firehazard_k: Who are we playing as
Contiguouskittycat: Maid robot, go maid robot!
sopranocat: Aaah, we broke it
Narida_L: so, is it explained why the androids are blindfolded?
ky0dar: im always going to take dubs where i can, but i can super understand keeping the Japanese. it just makes too much sense
EikoandMog: !advice
LRRbot: Press X to pump the dog.
MistahFixIt: "Short Range Attack Gear - CHINESE WOR SORD"
TwilightAvalon: This is the greatest Final Fantasy game that SquareEnix never made
GoAmpDog2: god this pod sucks
the_living_gale: I want to be as cool as her when I grow up.
CoyoteSans: The thing with Drakengard/Nier is you have to go all in on each game, or you get Get what's they're trying to do.
rarermonsters: @Dandinstorm12 Yahtzee is too smart to "not get" something. I think he just has different expectations from literature and that made him not like Nier.
GDwarf: Hmm, not sure I like POD's Japanese VA
MC_GigglePants: Got those karate swords
HoloTheWiseWolf_: we can get new knees
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: are we a blind android in a black goth dress with a katana
ylegm: I was thinking the same thing gdwarf
ky0dar: the UI reminds me of Snake Eater
phorrestgaze: japan pod is so much cooler
GDwarf: So, Cam, what do you know about this game?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I just want to check this to make sure
GDwarf: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Not blind
Dandinstorm12: @rarermonsters Everyone always told Yahtzee he didn't get games, it was a thing
MistahFixIt: Robo-Goons: "Quick kill her, she's got a sweet katana!"
aesir_blade: The regular menu is likely disabled atm
Contiguouskittycat: I love how your sword is actually larger than you.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: drone buddies are ALWAYS friends
Djshire: Someone finally made a JRPG that covers every fetish
Alephred: The blindfold is just for fashion's sake.
sopranocat: robo-friend? Robo-friend!
weldar93: @Narida_L I believe the blindfolds are actually their optic sensors, so no its just because it looks cool
aesir_blade: Pod 042
doomlimit: Pod 157 or something like that, it's just a number
MinniChii: confirmed today, baby is human. and best guess is Girl. lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
doomlimit: Yeah that
GoAmpDog2: POD
EikoandMog: Pod042, yeah.
rarermonsters: @Dandinstorm12 Okay... but I'm not sure why. He's probably the smartest game critic alive right now
Kramburger: From Square Enix: Exactly Alex Steacy's Jam: The Game
WubGhost: is that a taro-bot?
Dandinstorm12: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
EikoandMog: Marx!
CoyoteSans: Kill Casshern, Devour Casshern?
sethjharris: reminds me of the first time I saw the Star Wars game in arcades that let you play an fps, flight simulator, and sword fighter from the same seat
JediTransmit: Bagger 288 video anyone?
GDwarf: WubGhost: TaroBot comes later. :B
nihilist_twitch_user: A wat?
senorrodrod: cheer100 make no BUTTS about it...this games is the TITS and a great look into post humanism
NimrodXIV: welcome to Alex's head
Contiguouskittycat: @MinniChii Congrats on the kid, sorry that it's a human though. I know how disappointing that can be.
Dandinstorm12: wait we can hover?
Pandastirfry: sometimes though Yahtzee really didn't get it
WubGhost: okee
Elaro_56: sorry
EikoandMog: Angelic!
Serifina: I'm a bit late. How come the game audio is Japanese?
MistahFixIt: So we're fighting... a sentient Bucketwheel Excavator.
Astra7525: ah. that's the meaning of the nickname
BASEGray20: First boss is one of the last bosses in Metal Gear Rising...kinda
Pimptimus_Prime: To be fair, Yahtzee has stated amny times that Zero Punctuation doesn't always have his exact opinion, as it is a show where he HAS to crap on things as much as possible.
Talin06: into english?
aesir_blade: This thing is called "Marx"
MistahFixIt: Where there are no open pit mines.
weldar93: I mean its also close to the first boss of Rising, kind of
Cherubimcw: IS it gonna chase us up the stairs again?
EikoandMog: All the Machine Lifeforms are named after Existentialist Philosophers.
Macheya: The first NieR had a whole language that was not-quite-legible language.
aesir_blade: A lot of enemies and other *** are named after philosphers
splatty1: its also just a simple cypher
MistahFixIt shrugs. "Sure. Whatever"
ecjones1975: Stop kissing the spinning part
MC_GigglePants: The machines use angelic scrawl for a written language for some reason
Macheya: And most of the songs and speech were in that language.
Dandinstorm12: @rarermonsters because people tilt REALLY hard
aesir_blade: Platinum game
the_living_gale: One thing I don't understand thus far: what are the pink/red/purple spheres exactly?
rarermonsters: @Dandinstorm12 Oh yeah that's fair.
TwilightAvalon: Its an even more Japanese Bayonetta
sleepyham: 3rd person spectacle fighter
Kramburger: Damage Spheres
2Flower: Spectacle fighter.
Contiguouskittycat: Devil May Bayonetta.
Dandinstorm12: Bayonetta but less Bayonetta
GDwarf: There's a machine literally named "Jean-Paul" ("Sartre" in Japan) whose *first words to you* is a statement of the fundamental basis of Existentialism
Macheya: It's also neat that Alex was refused a command that he tried to perform in the game.
weldar93: Its an action rpg with that Platinum Games touch
HoloTheWiseWolf_: the_living_gale some sort of bullet
OneMoreRedNightmare: combination action/rpg and bullet hell
aesir_blade: I think the name for this gameplay style is Character Action
doomlimit: @the_living_gale Bullets. Pink can be destroyed, purple can't.
ky0dar: @serifina alex felt it was aprops because if how Japanese this game is
2Flower: Ahh, she didn't attend the Prometheus School of Running Away From Rolling Things.
Pimptimus_Prime: Adam compared the combat favorably to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Rockario: Hey, it's 9-Ass
rarermonsters: I do think a lot of it comes from the fact that Yahtzee doesn't really jive with the "Japanese" writing style of being more blunt with dialogue
EikoandMog: Oh, it's Kyle McCarley!
Fanboy_of_Bolas: spectal fighter
Dandinstorm12: Twitch noooo
Serifina: @Ky0dar Ah, thanks.
MC_GigglePants: 2-Butt and 9-Ass are a great pair
Narida_L: lies
aesir_blade: 9S and the Horrible, No Good, Very Very Bad Day.
rarermonsters: cheer300 Here's some bits as a belated thanks for staying late to finish Undertale for us. I hope you found it worth it. I'm not a fan of Neir:Automate so far, but I'm hoping you can sell me on it.
ylegm: nice kramburger
sopranocat: So.....they can see through the blindfolds because they're robots? And they actually use sensors? Then why make then humanoid if you're going to not give them eyes??
the_living_gale: Thanks everyone. Still not sure what they're made of, but I get it.
MistahFixIt: No 6O is our Ramirez, iirc
Alephred: Ramirez? Sean Connery from Highlander?
silverxX59: have alex and cam talked about the difference between the sub and dub?
phorrestgaze: 2booty
Mysterious_Challenger just subscribed with Twitch Prime. Mysterious_Challenger subscribed for 5 months in a row!
Mysterious_Challenger: Feels are not permitted.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Mysterious_Challenger! (Today's storm count: 57)
MistahFixIt: Ramirez is a Call of Duty thing I think... a dude on the radio who tells you to do shit.
Contiguouskittycat: Get it out of the way early.
weldar93: @Sopranocat, everything about how they look is purely just, because it was cool
Macheya: @Alephred I think it's a character from Predator? a sidekick.
sethjharris: wow, that's a way to walk
ky0dar: @alephred i think its a modern warfare reference
Dandinstorm12: and one refresh later
nihilist_twitch_user: It's pretty classy, actually.
sopranocat: It looks weird.........
Dandinstorm12: mmmmm lrrAWESOME
DarkMorford: Fun fact: In Japanese, 2B has the same voice as Mikasa from Attack on Titan.
Juliamon: It's a really modest outfit
nihilist_twitch_user: As far as fanservice goes.
EikoandMog: !highlight I AM BUT A MAN
LRRbot: Highlight added.
Serifina: I don't care if it's fanservice. I *** love 2B's design. It's so good
SniperPumpkin: turns out that when you're the fan being served, it actually enhances
Mysterious_Challenger: I don't know
Djshire: Its not the worst kind of fanservice though
sethjharris: I mean, woman are allowed to be sexu
Dandinstorm12: also damn that sword is huge
sethjharris: sexy
wildpeaks: it's ok, that's what good fanservice is meant for :D
daneislazy: "I am only most of a man!"
Kidror: DarkMorford I thought I recognised it
Mysterious_Challenger: It actually seems pretty tasteful?
GDwarf: The thing is, it's not all that fanservice-y, save for the boob window, which you mostly don't see. Mostly it's just a sweet-ass dress
DoodlestheGreat: We've all see FAR worse fan service. This is almost sedate.
delta__vee: why sexy robots
Macheya: 2B's design is way less fanservicey than Kainé.
Mysterious_Challenger: Like, this clearly isn't battle-ready designed
samwonk: I like the hovering swords as a design choice -- it looks really cool /and/ it makes a lot of the animation work a lot easier.
secret_pipesman: headcannon is that it's because the operator picks out her outfit
ThatDangSkeleton: What kind of idiot builds a robot that isn't hot
MistahFixIt: Yoko Taro is a goofy old weirdo and doesn't apologize for it.
misteline: @GDwarf you can see her underwear
Serifina: @Macheya You mean Lingerie Girl?
MC_GigglePants: That doesn't explain why 9S is a hot shota tho
EikoandMog: It's the same with Senran Kagura. aka, Fanservice, the game.
GDwarf: Macheya: Well, you can now get Kaine's outfit in DLC
aesir_blade: Yoko Taro's reaction to all the lewd artwork of the game was "please make a zip file and share it with me"
GDwarf: misteline: No you can't, she's wearing a leotard
Macheya: @Serifina Yeah. @GDwarf Sweeet.
Lanthess: I like how they just said lrrEFF it to the clipping swords problem most of these games have
firehazard_k: Wasn't bayonetta created by a woman?
GoAmpDog2: 9s outfit ?
Contiguouskittycat: EGS had a good comic about this, where the robot refused to dress as anything other than a maid because she liked the outfit. This is when the creators realized she was sentient.
Wraithfighter: The skirt, the skirt is eyerolling... but look. My beef is with those goddamn heels. Who the hell can actually fight in those heels?!
the_living_gale: Nier's fanservice doesn't feel degrading for me, that's why I can accept, and even enjoy it.
Mysterious_Challenger: You don't want a 'breathe through your skin' explanation.
Himyul: Wraithfighter if you're a robot and have stabilizers.....maybe?
ElectroIrisu: Bayonetta had female designers work on her as well
wildpeaks: better honesty than another "she breathes through her skin" bs
the_living_gale: Unlike, say, Izetta.
Dandinstorm12: Why not?
misteline: @GDwarf Underher dress. Hence the upskirt achivement
MC_GigglePants: Androids who are programmed to fight in those heels can lol
JediTransmit: She's a robot?
EikoandMog: Honestly, it's a nice contrast to the Resistance.
ky0dar: i love the UU
rarermonsters: I prefer no explanation than hearing "She breathes through her skin"
ky0dar: UI
GDwarf: misteline: It's still a leotard
weldar93: @Macheya, Kaine at least had a better explanation for her looks than I expected, I mean not a great one or anything but more than I expected
sethjharris: omega hot?
DirgeNovak: Everyone is a robot
nihilist_twitch_user: Because if you're going to kill an army, you best look DAMN good.
DigitalSeahorse: k twitch I had to refresh to get that box to go should never have been there in the first place
Rockario: Well, if the real reason is "Designer really liked it" then any in-universe explanation would be made up after the fact.
MistahFixIt: No Explanation is sometimes better than a Powerfully Stupid Explanation
Kramburger: I'd love to see something talk through making Cute Anime robo girls as a phychological advantage on the battlefield. Like they're distracting, disarming, and agrovating
