rarermonsters: Huh, so what I'm getting here was National Lampoon was the original Rooster Teeth
Arclight_Dynamo: Beej, if you're interested in this sort of graft stuff, you should 100% read up on the history of Commodore and Atari.
Lord_Hosk: NBC tried to hire the national lampoons to make the radio show into a TV show, and couldnt get the right people to sign off which is what led to SNL, and all the talent just left
Dascylus: That said, I always preferred Second City over Saturday Night Live
kpiozero: I'm a fond of this canadian comedy group
kpiozero: What are they called...
Arclight_Dynamo: Haha, the Amiga. Yes. Geeeeez.
kpiozero: the runners?
Nuurgle: Kids in the Hall
KidSpanner: Degrassi
Arclight_Dynamo: Do look up the blog "The Digital Antiquarian" for this sort of history, BTW.
mercano82: Yeah, the guys developing Amiga needed money, they were going to sell to Comadore or Atari, and after some interesting business dealing, Comadore got it.
Jyggalag35: RIP ben
Lord_Hosk: Compaq was a great story about what happens when a company changed from start up to small, to HUGE it just couldnt adapt, and yet sort of did
MillanLofqvist: pls bukkake
talosparoxi: that's fair
Dix: Oh god yeah Compaq went to *** when HP bought it out
DarkMorford: Valkyria Chronicles!
CataclysmicReverb: PS3 was kinda a sleeper, once many people realized how bad the 360's online service was
SquareDotCube: Poor Ian,he got JASON'd Kappa
talosparoxi: I bought my ps3 for ratchet and clank
jakale: Journey is the only exclusive I can thhink of that I wanted, maybe last of us
Arclight_Dynamo: mercano82 : Jack frikkin' Trammiel.
PMAvers: I bought my PS4 for Persona 5. And that's all I've really been happy with.
Foxmar320: PS3 had a lot of good exclusives.
Jyggalag35: and PS3 could do BluRAys
Zyme86: Dreamcast was just one the edge, but never really had the set of game before it lost steam IMO
Taichanie: The last of us was a must have for ps3 for me.
talosparoxi: paul: "a console should never leak" comment on the dreamcast
Arclight_Dynamo: Commodore started as a manufacturer of office furniture. Fact!
rarermonsters: As much as I adore the dreamcast I have to admit it's game library was mostly garbage and a few masterpieces
Dascylus: I bought PS3 because it was an affordable Blu-Ray player at the time
Juliamon: My PS3 is a blu-ray player with a Skyrim feature
Mystaira: I just got PS4 today for my birthday that was a few days ago. 8D Now I get to finally play Persona 5! <3
Dascylus: Now my PS3 is a Netflix machine
RavingPenguin: Ben got real concerned about needing to pay back a Tom Nook debt there for a second
kpiozero: I'm suprised that Ben isn't a Qwerpline chracter now
easterncaveofwonders: Hi Ben Ian and Beej! Hi chat!
rarermonsters: That said, Grandia 2 remains the best true JRPG ever created (Outside of the mario satire JRPGs)
Lord_Hosk: Upper Right Ian, Upper Left Ben, Lower left Beej
duaiwe: I somehow managed to skip the whole blu-ray thing.
CaptainSpam: The Animal Crossing level is neat, as it randomly picks a season...
Viewers_Like_You: I'm just waiting for a new villager to move into town and put their house right in the middle of the lrrEFF ing road
RavingPenguin: If you run into the wrong tree do you get swarmed by bees?
Dascylus: @duaiwe So you basically own nothing from after 2006? Because everything runs Blu-Ray now
cthulhudude23: Dr. Ben, something super random, but for betrayal at house on the hill, a friend of mine bought a bunch of small, different colored paperclips to use instead of those stupid coffins, and they work MUCH better.
duaiwe: Dascylus Streaming, Digital purchases, and other digital “acquisitions"
Jyggalag35: Ben so close
duaiwe: I just stopped wanting to buy physical media like 10 years ago.
Xed_Regulus: Damn! Anaheim just scored. 2-1 Edmonton.
Dascylus: @duaiwe Your PC still has a Blu-Ray disc drive
easterncaveofwonders: Thanks @lord_hosk
PMAvers: Drive straight into the museum for drive-by EXAMINE THESE FOSSILS
DarkMorford: The app! Drink!
duaiwe: Dascylus I could be pedantic and say my MBP does not, but I explicitly put one in my gaming PC. I’ve never used it, though.
Xed_Regulus: Wait, the Ducks' goal is under review!
dougma: we laminated our player cards. now the clips fit tighter and do not slip
kpiozero: BATTLE!
PMAvers: Actually, wasn't Betrayal under the Avalon Hill imprint originally?

rarermonsters: Go away Pump19, oyou're capitalism and we're *** that right now
Xed_Regulus: Ducks' goal stands
JuniperP1: cheer100 Here's my contribution against capitalism... wait
TacitusVigil: Tomorrow is F_ck the Sith Day, so....close enough. :)
Serifina: Hi folks. Who's who today?
Jensling: May Day might have been monday, but S O C I A L I S M - N E V E R - S L E E P S
talosparoxi: they're the red headed adopted child of the maritimes. Which is a compliment on PEI.
Jyggalag35: hey cows are dumb... just a bit slow
mercano82: Now I'm thinking of the song where Big Bird tries reading the alphabet like it's a word.
KneelArmstrong: I'd imagine part of the issue is that Boo isn't exactly *on* the motorcycle per se
Zyme86: They are not bred to be dumb they are bread to be dossile
ChroniclerC: Cows are DELICIOUS beasts.
Jyggalag35: also, cows are MUCH LARGER than you may think if youve never seen one
TacitusVigil: Is VoicedOtter around, we could ask them.
Macheya: This is weird to hear after watching Kemono Friends.
Lord_Hosk: Otter tastes fishy
Arclight_Dynamo: I know squirrel tastes nutty. It was pretty good.
JuniperP1: make an otter bolonese, tastes like clamato
Nuurgle: @mercano82 I love that song!
oyleslyck: May the Fourth, followed by Revenge of the Fifth
SpoonfullOfSugar: does that mean that grass actually tastes like beef?
Viewers_Like_You: Otter tastes like it ought ter
rarermonsters: Humans are a nice species because we're the only creature that empathizes with our prey
talosparoxi: otters taste like seal. because they do... things

Lord_Hosk: Seal is sweater talosparoxi
JuniperP1: no, just not capitalizing
Serifina: So, uh, who is which screen/character?
Juliamon: Oh wow
TheMoatman: 144% alcohol?
4dSwissCheese: They should just sell that stuff as a special batch
Arclight_Dynamo: 144 proof, 77%.
Macheya: I think you got that backwartds.
Juliamon: That's... the opposite of how it goes
Feltic: Wrong way...
CaptainSpam: Um...
oyleslyck: Not proof 77% percent not the normal 40%
Aenir798: I think you got the proof and % backwards
CaptainSpam: Yeah, proof goes from 0 to 200.
Trippzen: I like gin but that sounds terrible. To be fair, I hate Bombay Sapphire anyways.
TheMoatman: Yeah but then you're drinking twice as much gin
Arclight_Dynamo: The point of high-proof booze is to use for flaming cocktails.
somewhatclever_: Beej, It's concentrated gin!
mercano82: OK, good, 77 proof didn't seem that hanious. 77% is a different story.
rarermonsters: Well, people might die if they don't have the taste to know how strong their alcohol is and drink the equivalent of multiple bottles in a night
TheMoatman: You could just get everclear and flavor it with some botanicals
SniperPumpkin: the high proof means that it basically evaporates when you drink it
dougma: Gin is usually 80 Proof, or 40%
rarermonsters: You can also make Sangria in the turlet
Jyggalag35: wait why did they take it down?
Issurru: Saskatchewan was left out
oyleslyck: I thought it was just Ontario
mercano82: Ben with the counter.
TheMoatman: This is some really good scotch
AllMeatPizza: Damn Ben, didn't know PJSalt was an item in this game
Zyme86: http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/bombay-sapphire-gin-recall-1.4097353 The Liquor Control Board Of Ontario was the first to issue a recall after its internal quality assurance team discovered that some bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin had not been properly diluted, resulting in an alcohol content of 77 per cent, not 40 per cent as listed on the bottle.
TheMoatman: Nice and sweet, but not too sweet
Serifina: Would someone please be kind enough to tell me who's playing what today, as I came in late?
Zyme86: 144 proof
TheMoatman: but not to fiery either
TheMoatman: *too
Jyggalag35: oh damn
Jyggalag35: not properly labeled
oyleslyck: 154 proof
ChroniclerC: JEZUS
rarermonsters: Dear Drs. LRR, I'm an American and unaware of your superior country, what stereotype of Manitoba are you referencing?
Viewers_Like_You: 77 proof, which is 154% alcohol
dougma: yea, about the same as pure grain alcohol
Jyggalag35: 154 proof, normal saturday night lrrBEEJ
oyleslyck: No proof is 2x %
Zyme86: Everclear 75-95% alcohol
Feltic: Everclear runs 75% to 95%
talosparoxi: try some of this pearl jam
TacitusVigil: The concept of proof still bothers me. "Let's make it like percent...but double it! Brilliant!"
Feltic: Or what Zyme86 said, ya fast bugger
Zyme86: @Feltic my google fu is strong
Nuurgle: Len's album was solid
SharpCookies: the bath
Jyggalag35: as with a lot of weird things, i believe it has to do with sailor terminology @TacitusVigil
Juniper_P1: and swearing!
BusTed: Haha.
CommiePuddin: !highlight self awareness
LRRbot: Highlight added.
Macheya: Have you seen and heard Crazy Town's "Butterfly" Ian?
Nuurgle: they had like 20 Canadian rappers in their crew
anonynym: confirmed, Ian hates dancing pregnant ladies
rarermonsters: Okay, seriously, I almost want to pose a challenge and find a song that wouldn't make an awesome gorillaz cover
delta__vee: s/scooters/snowmobiles/ :D
Viewers_Like_You: Ian with the clever sabotage
TacitusVigil: Jyggalag35 : Oh I know, I'm just calling BS on it.
Juniper_P1: given the state winter leaves edmonton roads in, I'd say scooters are impractical 12 months out of the year
SharpCookies: tos
stevestein: There was a long feature story about that video. They were given a bunch of money and just screwed around with it.
Pimptimus_Prime: Proofing had to do with how mucc gunpowder was required to ignite with alcohol.
stevestein: There was no plan
Lord_Hosk: LOL
Viewers_Like_You: Ben confirmed ProZD fan, based on that mental leap?
Xed_Regulus: DAMN! Anaheim has tied it up!
anonynym: holy crap, I was for decades that one of the lines in the song was about Sticky Buns
rarermonsters: Animal Crossing is sort of like Harvest Moon without the farming
dougma: TacitusVigil that is a modern change. originally proof ranged from 0 -214 and was based on a different test based on a hydranger (sp?) using english units. It was changed later
rarermonsters: Or ability to form relationshiips
TacitusVigil: Stupid Millennium Als. When will Millennium Albert ever learn?!
talosparoxi: DAMMIT BEN. now I need to rewatch OHSHC
RagingTrees: I love ProZD
jakale: he does good stuff
Famout: This stage is evil, I love it
Jyggalag35: people gokart out in the streets?
cyclopsboi: split screen multiplayer?!!? cheer100 game of the year!
SharpCookies: my youtube screwed up and basically made me resbscribe toa b unch of ppl i unsubscribed from long before
Macheya: I watched Jeremy Clarkson race through Tokyo in a Bugatti Veyron, does that count?
duaiwe: rarermonsters That’s why i like animal crossing, I really loath the relationship part of harvest moon :P
TacitusVigil: dougma : See, if had stayed the original, I would almost have more respect for it. If you're going to change it...just make it percent.
SharpCookies: I didn't remember until now how I followed a fair amount of ppl who only made OHSHC AMVs
RagingTrees: On the highways when you go to Tokyo, youll find nintendo characters on scooters driving between the traffic
dougma: TacitusVigil in england for a long time proof was 1.75xABV too... total mess
SharpCookies: OHSHC was my *** to an embarrassing degree
CaptainSpam: You mean in Tokyo, you're generally driving around in go-karts with no respect for road laws while GIGANTIC cars motor around, crushing you?
Nuurgle: Take the bus to see One Direction in Tokyo. Got it
Dix: I want an Ian + Ben Japan Vlog
rarermonsters: @duaiwe I'll admit I partially long for a world where being charming isn't necessary and I could just throw potatoes at a woman until she loved me
Jyggalag35: Ben you were probbaly not a blast at 16, mostly becuase youre actually 12 lrrBEEJ
TacitusVigil: dougma : This is the same country that didn't decimilise until the 20th century. Of course it's a mess. :P
RagingTrees: i think ben is rad
Lord_Hosk: Im going to win the lotto and hire Ian as a Japan tour guide

Taichanie: I was picked up in a modified subaru when I went to japan. It was very odd and cool.
LRRbot: Highlight added.
Nuurgle: !highlight harsh reality time
talosparoxi: beej you are cool
dougma: TacitusVigil they merged the two forms of 'proof' to new scales while keeping the old values around the same value under the new system. They did the same thing for celcious and farenheight aroind the same time
Arclight_Dynamo: TacitusVigil : Agreed. It's like redefining an inch to be 2 cm. Silly. I'm all for metrication, but when it comes to "traditional" things (like... football fields and alcohol measures), I like traditional units.
talosparoxi: 46
LathosTiran: Beej how can anyone who has this> lrrBEEJ < not be cool
Sitiran: 36? fuuuuuuu
talosparoxi: I could see that
mercano82: You get three stars for 60 points.
barbarianras: TO BATTLE!!!!
Nuurgle: I'm older than The Critic lrrAWW lrrBEEJ
Taichanie: How is Ben and the old man Beej and Ian become friends?
Dix: lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ lrrBEEJ
SharpCookies: wait, how old are you guys? thought ian and beej were early 30s
CaptainSpam: lrrBEEJ
rarermonsters: Come on Ian, Jay Sherman is 36 is as unbelievable as Goth Lolitas at 1000
Feltic: Wait... lrrBEEJ missed when that came online
ChroniclerC: Wait, lrrBEEJ WANTED the emote! xD
Viewers_Like_You: Hey, to be fair, Ian has an emote too: panicBasket
oyleslyck: FYI Kate dislikes the lrrBEEJ emote
mercano82: I think the stars mattered on the Wii U, for unlocking courses, but on the Switch, all the courses and characters are unlocked out of the box, so...
Xed_Regulus: Hockey game is all tied-up and Anaheim has a powerplay.
cyclopsboi: lrrDOTS lrrBEEJ lrrARROW
TacitusVigil: oyleslyck : She's objectively wrong on this.
RavingPenguin: lrrDOTS lrrBEEJ lrrARROW
TheMoatman: Nah Ian's like 60
Solomon_Kain: I pegged Ben at 37. Kappa
Saintnex: lrrDOTS lrrBEEJ lrrARROW
SharpCookies: lmao glad I complimented you I guess
2Flower: Ian is older than sin.
Kate: Correction @oyleslyck I don't like ANY kappa emote
TheMoatman: And Beej puts Methusaleh to shame
Lord_Hosk: Ian is in his mid 50s
Foxmar320: lol
UlranQentba: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
duaiwe: This is why I like Ian & Beej, I don’t feel old.
Issurru: I saw some crapshots when Ian had hair, it looked so weird lrrBEEJ
Pharmacistjudge: lrrDOTS lrrDILLY lrrARROW
SharpCookies: wait
Jyggalag35: YES
mercano82: How is the series going for Edmonton?
Jyggalag35: lrrBEEJ
MinniChii: I put ben at my husband's age (28)
TacitusVigil: I would buy two of those.
Moonstruckragamuffin: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Dusk_Shine: Ship it!~
TacitusVigil: Not even joking.
SharpCookies: I can't tell who is being serious about ian's age lmao
Jyggalag35: doesnt matter; got beej
Juliamon: DO IT
SolarJudas: I would 100% buy it.
CaptainSpam: Doooooo eeeeeeet.
ChroniclerC: I'M IN
vegasturm: lrrBEEJ
Foxmar320: LOL
Solomon_Kain: lrrBEEJ is pretty self-explanatory. Kappa
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: aw man
rarermonsters: Ian, that's a great idea, but I'm a millennial. What is "Letter Writing"?
ylegm: I mean, I already by all your guys other pins
Xed_Regulus: I turned 37 last Thursday. Suddenly feeling old.
talosparoxi: you'd have to explain kappa and then explain LRR
TheMoatman: Well you'
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: I don't want Beej on my lanyarrd
RavingPenguin: I WILL 100% BUY THAT PIN lrrBEEJ
stevestein: "What the hell is this?" We know what it is, Beej, it's YOU. *beejstep*
Jyggalag35: i dont buy buttons, i would buy that button
TheMoatman: *You're close
2Flower: Experience lrrBEEJ
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: i mean, sure do it
Dascylus: lrrBEEJ this emote makes me so happy
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: Also Ben and I are the same age lrrAWESOME
Contiguouskittycat: Ben is only 3 years older than me. WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!
Taichanie: Been is 24 isn't he?
talosparoxi: beej you look like 27
Aarek: lrrBEEJ = Beej Face no space
Trippzen: Wow, I haven't been carded in years.
TheMoatman: Ben do you have The Picture on hand?
Viewers_Like_You: Ben's 19!
Lord_Hosk: I put ben as 19
kpiozero: Oh man
Jyggalag35: I usually dont get carded, and im younger than Ben ><
PMAvers: Sounds like all the modes are actually good, too
Foxmar320: The_Ocean_who_Subbed Get off my lawn!
LoadingReadyRun: So... it's FUNNY, but it's not gonna get the same walk-by appeal. No offense Beej, but you ain't no cute ghost.
Arclight_Dynamo: I mean, Ian looks *great* for 87. Kappa
talosparoxi: I know you're older but you look young
mogling: The renegade one is the best
ylegm: are the battles better in the switch version?
Foxmar320: lol G
p_johnston: I always forget Ben is my age. beard makes him seem older.
Shemerson: I was so surprised when I found out Ben is 24, I totally thought he was older than me, but nope, same age
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: I don't like drinking
2Flower: lrrSPOOP > lrrBEEJ
MinniChii: to be fair, Ben looks like my husband. if my husband wasn't a redhead
Macheya: Man, bodied.
mercano82: Three men enter, one man leaves, then the other two leave, but they aren't winners.
talosparoxi: ben is 7
The_Ocean_who_Subbed: *...I don't, I like drinking
ChroniclerC: Graham, you underestimate lrrBEEJ 's appeal.
CaptainSpam: Um... this isn't elimination.
Jyggalag35: lrrSPOOP = lrrBEEJ
anonynym: I'm pretty sure releasing that much pure Beej into the wild will have detrimental effects on non-Victoria ecosystems.
CaptainSpam: Just as a reminder.
RagingTrees: I'm only 19, but my mind is older
Feltic: Ians 87!!! I must have missed his b-day, Well done Ian
SharpCookies: oh dude, I am also 24. yeeee
barbarianras: doesnt the sum of the differences in ages of beej/ian equal ben's age?
talosparoxi: probably G
Viewers_Like_You: I'm putting in an outside bet at it being Beej on the account
SniperPumpkin: lrrHORN > lrrSPOOP > lrrBEEJ
Lord_Hosk: Ben: 'I wish I was 19... last year was great"
rarermonsters: Improvement on the Beej Kappa Pin, an MTG Playmat
amythist: it's almost always Graham, everyone else tends to log on their own account
LoadingReadyRun: Ian pls
duaiwe: Ian: You know you can just get pins ordered. Kickstart that :D
nattsan: Can't wait for Splatoon 2
Jyggalag35: Ian, in the words of Palpeteine, "Dew it!"
Solomon_Kain: Go full Real Genius and write 63k letters by "hand" Kappa
rarermonsters: No, the Beej Kappa art put into the style of the Obama Hope poster
talosparoxi: oh Ian, it sounds like he gave you the goahead. he said please
Macheya: @Solomon_Kain I miss that movie.
RavingPenguin: Ian if you make the pin I will buy it lrrBEEJ
Tiber727: Everyone's being defensive. Turn it into Green Shell Hell!
CaptainSpam: nattsan: Can't wait for another trip back to Inkopolis. And to hear their excuse as to how Judd has a kitten now. lrrBEEJ
Solomon_Kain: 3 player Skyscraper was the Best Battle level EVER.
KneelArmstrong: Another touch I love on this map--the item sound effect is the sound for unlocking a new ability in Splatoon
mercano82: Try doing the SNES arena. It was designed for one on one combat.
ChroniclerC: xD Ian just playing backwards now.
Arclight_Dynamo: I mean... I want THIS pin: https://i.imgur.com/DZziVTp.jpg Kappa
CaptainSpam: Maybe don't stick around in the sniper nests... :-)
SharpCookies: this is alsoputting me in a splatoon mood
SharpCookies: i might boot it up tomorrow
TheMoatman: NO
PMAvers: If you use that feather to jump over someone, you can steal balloons from other players.
Nuurgle: ian with hair? Not on my pin!
4dSwissCheese: Best Zelda game
Feltic: I... I think that would be a very different sounding *uhh* for that version of apple pen
mercano82: The feather was in the original SNES Mario Kart. You needed it for some shortcuts, and it was good for avoiding red shells.
Foxmar320: Use feather and jump into another player to steel a baloon
CaptainSpam: Beej, Ian, Ben... you do know that this isn't an elimination match anymore, right?
rarermonsters: Link's Awakening is a massively underrated Zelda game. Probably the third best after Majaro's and Breath of the Wild
2Flower: I really hope the Switch's success translates to Splatoon 2 success. The Wii-U was really holding that great game back.
ChroniclerC: Do they know that they can find each other with the map in the middle of the screen?
Saintnex: Wow, I just noticed the mini map lol
mercano82: @rarermonsters You're not wrong.
Jyggalag35: same just noticed mini map lol
PMAvers: To be fair, Splat the First actually sold *really* well. Especially in Japan.
SharpCookies: @2Flower i mean to be fair it worked really well for the wiiu imo. the map on your gamepad and being able to tap to jump to a place on the map was hype
rarermonsters: Majaro's is not only the best Zelda Game and the best n64 game, it's probably one of the top ten Horror Games of all time
duaiwe: rarermonsters i’m not sure I agree with that particular ranking, but I do think Link’s awakening was a great game
justanal subscribed for 4 months in a row!
justanal: <3 Ben
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, justanal! (Today's storm count: 88)
CaptainSpam: It's based on hits, and if you lose all your balloons, you lose half your score.
2Flower: @SharpCookies Agreed, but the low sales of the console meant it couldn't really soar the way it should. High install base on switch, though...
StrykRedkite: Majora's Mask is good, but I put BOTW ahead of it.
justanal: I love you too, Beej.
SharpCookies: @2Flower that's true. I bought a wiiu for splatoon, tho, cuz it looked so good lmao I think it'll get a lot of success on the switch
Foxmar320: lol
anonynym: Just an Al?
rarermonsters: @StrykRedkite BOTW is superb but I'm really let down by a very bland story poorly executed. It had superior gameplay to Majora's Mask but Mask told a truly great story like so few games acheive
PMAvers: Oh wow, Splatoon 1 almost sold 5 million copies.
bishbashfalls: You hop off to the bathroom for one minute and suddenly, you hear about people and their preferences for butt sex. This place is pretty great.
justanal: My name is pronounced: Butt Stuff Only
Xed_Regulus: There is a guy at the Edmonton-Anaheim game wearing an Oilers' Luchador mask.
mercano82: Link's Awakening was the first Zelda I beat on my own. I played a lot of the original Zelda at a friend's house, co-op pass the controler style, and some LttP, but the GameBoy was the first Nintendo system I had myself. I spent my Christmas money one year buying the GameBoy+Link's Awakening bundle.
ChroniclerC: They still haven't figured out the minimap in the middle, have they?
mercano82: Xed_Regulus : Where are they playing?
Lord_Hosk: Yahkuza does a great job modeling what it was like when I was a mob hit man in the 80's in Japan -Ian
amythist: is that where the cuddle parlors are yet?
amythist: err no yet*
Arclight_Dynamo: I still want that kind of game, but set in 1980s Toronto. Or 1960s Montreal.
Xed_Regulus: @mercano82 Edmonton
Foxmar320: Who says Ian is not still a mob hit man
rarermonsters: LoZ really let itself down by never moving on from Ganon, especially since they made it so clear the kind of amazing stories the setting and art style could tell in Majora's Mask
CaptainSpam: You respawn and lose half your points, rounded up.
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh it's scring how many you pop, not how many you have
