Earthenone: is ian just blowing into a mic? lrrBEEJ
Dared00: Hi chat
FoxFyr: oh hey im on time for once
postmodernpajamawrestler: no, not allowed
Rhynerd: I heard there would be metal and I moved towards this stream at a pace.
Metric_Furlong: debating whether or not to throw in a poll, or save it for tomorrow since I'm probably not going be awake for all of this
kidoya7: Rhythm Cafe better be dropping me some fat beats to write to. End of Semester essays suck
rocketjohn: Someone seems to have wind.
Shparky2197: Thank you @Metric_Furlong. It's kind of managable at the moment, the hardest part has been recognising there's a problem and getting help for it.
Earthenone: your monday polls tend to get more responses
tipulsar85: Soon
Shparky2197: Also moving back home to be closer to family has helped a lot

Sektor88: Tak Fuji, aka the guy responsible for 99 Nights and the 1 million troops meme was partially responsible for this game.
Shparky2197: YAY! Cool extras
Rhynerd: Neat!
Earthenone: pride69 a foil comic with stickers?! how 90's is this game!
GDwarf: An instruction manual?!
Lithobraker: ooooh! the value! In kibler's name
Rhynerd: Not so much the kidnapping, but the comic is neat

Lithobraker: Did they licence it or get paid to put it in?

angryoptimist: Heard the stream started--so, what's all this Gal Metal business about?
Sektor88: n o o d l e m o d e
GDwarf: Now, I *have* heard that the difficulty curve on this is more of a cliff
TehAmelie: mastering the noodle as a musical instrument sounds great tbh
gravity_pike: Hmm, ian's shirt sure does a thing when you compress it.
solsesshiro: All right guys, I'm terrible at this game. Teach me how to play.
GDwarf: Ah yes, Tokyo, the pinnacle of human achievement

ArcOfTheConclave: tos!
TehAmelie: suddenly puberty?
SixPairsOfFeet: this is someone's fetish, isn't it
electroswagnetism: anime pls
angryoptimist: A N I M E
kidoya7: its Your Name all over again
Saulens181: @sixpairsoffeet yep sure is
CleverCrumbish: Anime why
Keab42: I've missed Ian's voices
SixPairsOfFeet: i'm completely certain i'm not interested in this situation in any sort of way!
TehAmelie: this is a strange Venom adaptation
angryoptimist: ATTACK!
aWabbajack: oh is this for Switch? I thought I saw the cover at the store
Lithobraker: PROTTECC!
Keab42: This is the voice of the mysterons
aWabbajack: the girl's on the cover
SixPairsOfFeet: they are playing on switch, indeed
GDwarf: So far I think I'd have preferred if it was just the girl chosen as the emissary
FickleMuse: Hey everybody!
aWabbajack: @SixPairsOfFeet awesome, thanks!
angryoptimist: Time to do a whole M E T A L.
sjcTheos: wait is this BABYMETAL the game?
Keab42: Metal club? TTSF?
EscherichiaCole: Gasp! Metal club?
Talin06: so... why is the guy even here?
CleverCrumbish: Lets spend lots of our precious alien technology on fusing two kids together and then... blow them up... with the rest of the humans?
GDwarf: XSEED does very good localizations
sir_jack_DB: \m/ O \m/
Earthenone: the ojou-sama, got it
bpcl: Oh shit it's the Yakuza
Lithobraker: of course she's the bass
electroswagnetism: She plays bass so you know she doesn't matter
RomanGoro: Has anybody ever said the words "I Hypotesize" IRL?
Keab42: She had quiet girl hair
sjcTheos: having a little brother is a defining personality trait?
Keab42: @romangoro I've said "I Hypothesizzle". It's close.
Shparky2197: Is anyone else here a bit lost? There's a lot going on in this opening cutscene
cheshire_creeper: TOUCH THE PUPPET HEAD
FoxFyr: Dat ESP tie in though
sjcTheos: and they break out into Doctor Horrible song
Keab42: So we have to play drums to beat Aliens.
DJ_Sucre: the artstyle reminds me of HisoMaso
angryoptimist: So, the boy is basically just there to explain why we're not good immediately?
GDwarf: Aliens fear rock music, we're now sharing a body with a metal drummer, now we're gonna fight aliens
Awexdio: Please tell me there's a Scott Pilgrim Style bass Battle
bpcl: I believe this is a "rythym game" where you have to press the arrow in the right direction at the right time in order to build up "rythym points"
Shparky2197: A badge for sitting through the opening cutscene. I think this game is very aware of it's plot heaviness to start with.
Ignatiuspants: Wait... the "you've never played drums before? you need to practice right now!" ...WASN'T a set-up for a gameplay tutorial?
Talin06: @angryoptimist looks like it
GDwarf: Ignatiuspants Yeah, that's a bit odd
sjcTheos: phrasing!
electroswagnetism: when does this game get to the game part
Shparky2197: Answer, all of them
SuperSugarSloth: usually this turns into a hentai
CleverCrumbish: Yes, getting expelled is definitely a normal response from a school board for being possessed by a boy
bpcl: That's not the best power when Aliens have given you a 1-day deadlline
Sarah_Serinde: Oh hey I found a new candidate for !badadvice :P
red_shoes_jeff: How many psychics? Hopefully more, or less, than four.
Ignatiuspants: I'm baffled by most of what I've seen so far...
Aenir798: I was expecting rhythm game stuff, but I'm down for this anime.
Saulens181: @supersugarsloth then again 75 percent of plots do
Sektor88: blackrose like from .hack? O:
chickenace11: how many are Jo-Jo references tho
GDwarf: Not sure if the references are down to the original or the localization, I could believe either
GDwarf: This!
sjcTheos: ^
electroswagnetism: Guitar player in a metal band not getting math scans
Shparky2197: Sorry, that sounded like Ian said "I don't get meth".
Shparky2197: Unintentional hilarity!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: going to call it now, Telephone pole is a yet different alien
electroswagnetism: k
angryoptimist: "k" katesLol
GDwarf: I kinda love that they talk over each other
sir_jack_DB: bzzzbbzzzbbzzbzzzz
SydPreviouslyHeadache: wtf is that emoticon thing
sjcTheos: katesWa katesOw
SydPreviouslyHeadache: a heart monster?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: lotta psychics in this school
chickenace11: This seems like the 5th or 6th time she has said that the prez is controlled by an alien
Rockario: This constant buzzing is making me less annoye when my phone doesn't alert me to new messages when I have the app in focus
GDwarf: This!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: what is that doing?
CleverCrumbish: Literally when did the Prez tell you this
Pariah164: Yeyeyeyeyeyeye
Rhynerd: Yeah!
bpcl: I wonder what alien power that character is using to rapid switch from John Travolta to Rodney Dangerfield
JohnLockeCole: Too many Buz
Sektor88: engage noodle mode!
Aenir798: Whoa this anime comes with a game? Cool.
Shparky2197: Was that 20 minutes of intro?
Metric_Furlong: CleverCrumbish the game is assuming its audience are able to infer that an explanation of things the player has already seen has been given
Keab42: Hard mode. One stick each.
Stoffern: time to noodle
angryoptimist: The last time we played rock music we tried to but failed to find our wife--what will we try and fail to find this time? Kappa
8_Escape: Three sounds.
Rockario: @Shparky2197 Was it? So I didn't miss any gameplay then?
RealGamerCow: Time to get Ginger Baker on this bizniss
gravity_pike: hit drums with drumsticks. These are the fundamentals of drumming!
SixPairsOfFeet: how do you do it with the foot?
sjcTheos: EnterSand (man)?
Shparky2197: @Rockario we're only now getting gameplay
GDwarf: 20 Minutes to gameplay? I've seen worse
CleverCrumbish: @Metric_Furlong But why would it assume that when it committed to showing the entirety of the conversation where the club even discover aliens exist diagetically?
Shparky2197: To sum up, aliens are attacking, they're weak to music
sir_jack_DB: oh my god EnterSand
SydPreviouslyHeadache: exit light?
splatty1: dvorak?
gravity_pike: is this Beast and the Harlot?
bpcl: It's about going to the beach
SydPreviouslyHeadache: OH it is
Shparky2197: So your band is going to defend the Earth with a minimum of questions asked
Metric_Furlong: CleverCrumbish to save time. it's a common narrative device
sir_jack_DB: WOW this is great
Sektor88: which I only know from asura's wrath enigmaLUL
SydPreviouslyHeadache: I never got into avenged sevenfold?
Keab42: Metal Power!
Rhynerd: Aliens weak to music chose a metal band drummer and some kid to be mankind’s protector.
Shparky2197: Yeah, what Rhynerd said.
Rockario: Okay, they're just using the names as references then I guess
electroswagnetism: In order to properly play entersand, you need to hit the drum as hard as possible
korvys: Wait, so you can just pick what you play?
Sektor88: an FPD
korvys: That's cool
GDwarf: So yeah, you can essentially freestyle your drumming, I gather, you just need to keep to the rhythm
angryoptimist: Well, this is sorta delightful.
solsesshiro: Basically
CleverCrumbish: @Metric_Furlong Yes, but you can't mix contexts like that. Either the conversation is presented with a diagetic framing device or you get to skip updates on who knows what, not both
solsesshiro: It's harder than it sounds
Metric_Furlong: whether it's assuming something beyond its audiences' capabilities is apparently subject of debate Kappa
TehAmelie: this is the first rhythm game i've ever seen where you are an actual band having actual practice
SydPreviouslyHeadache: i have no idea what's going on
korvys: I already have favourites
sjcTheos: I'm already lost...
GDwarf: SydPreviouslyHeadache We're playing "EnterSand" along with the rest of our band
Rhynerd: We’re a metal band.
Rhynerd: Well, we’re the drummer.
bpcl: Okay so instead of following the song you just have rhythms that you use like a toolbox?
sir_jack_DB: this song is so good
SydPreviouslyHeadache: how do you know which one you're suppsoed tob e playing?
sjcTheos: what does rudiments mean??
GDwarf: SydPreviouslyHeadache You can play any of them
tehfewl: head banging keyboard player? check!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: yeah, what does rudiments mean as well
solsesshiro: There is no "supposed to"
SixPairsOfFeet: rudiments are a big set of different little patterns
bpcl: basics
SixPairsOfFeet: with silly names
angryoptimist: Rudiments probably means "almost good" or something.
SixPairsOfFeet: like paradiddle-diddle for example
solsesshiro: Rudiments is nothing in particular
Dared00: @sydpreviouslyheadache you don't, it's an improv game
GDwarf: "Rudiments" is a different rhythm pattern
angryoptimist: Like, a partial success.
GDwarf: It's like "Harlot" but with the left hand, IIRC
angryoptimist: Oh, okay.
Sektor88: I can't not think of asura's wrath since they used this exact track for a boss battle. lol.
solsesshiro: It's just "you played something this section"
bpcl: I love the word "Harlot"
TehAmelie: so much power
gravity_pike: battle? metal! Metal? Battle!
Lithobraker: Black Rose is the best so far
Metric_Furlong: \m/
Rhynerd: That’s a lotta metal power?
solsesshiro: Basically if you do anything that isn't a built in rhythm it's Rudiments
Ignatiuspants: the story so far is, some aliens are attacking the Earth, because they're angry humans sent music into space some decades ago, and the only people who know this are trapped in the same body, and their band is going to save the world with the power of rock
Sektor88: metaru powah
sjcTheos: METAL \m/ limesHeck
Ignatiuspants: oh, my mistake -- the power of METAL \m/
TehAmelie: it's like a Scott Pilgrim subplot
SydPreviouslyHeadache: can you do both at the same time?
Pariah164: Oh my god, you're right
SixPairsOfFeet: so this is kind of like the tony hawk's pro skater of rhythm games?
Keab42: Headbanging aliens!
solsesshiro: That's... A way of looking at it
Dared00: This game is like Floor Kids, your job is to combo different rhythms
8_Escape: METAL \m/ is like SCIENCE!
angryoptimist: This looks pretty fun to play.
Dared00: So yeah, THPS
Pariah164: Man I need to play Floor Kids again
Sektor88: might need to get this for my switch :P
SixPairsOfFeet: new world degeneration!
TehAmelie: "Entersand" is a measure of how much Metallica you're channeling right
korvys: I like the blue one and the gree one
SydPreviouslyHeadache: fucking destroyed
GDwarf: Stop! Stop! They're already dead!
Nightvalien28: METAL
Ignatiuspants: awesome!
Pariah164: ZA WARUDO
Shparky2197: I know that this is probably not a literal interpretation of what they're set up is, but what the hell are the authorities going to think when they see a metal band playing to a group of aliens on top of a high school?
Shparky2197: their*
Keab42: A weapon to surpass Metal Power!
bpcl: I love this game's historical accuracy
korvys: Morality?
TehAmelie: they're just gonna think "japanese school clubs, man, what can you do"
Metric_Furlong: Shparky2197 "that's so metal"? Kappa
Rhynerd: @shparky2197 depends on of they see the aliens get defeated as well.
Pariah164: Replay
korvys: I like the blue one and the green one
Shparky2197: Well the aliens don't seem to be having so many problems with the music as they impied in the intro
Pariah164: Keyboardist is best girl
bpcl: Which avenged sevenfold song is that riff they keep playing from?
Keab42: I dislike protagonist guy.
TehAmelie: i recognize part of this tune from high school choir. . .
8_Escape: Why are the martians headbanging!?
angryoptimist: Honestly, I like the Prez--she's jut like "right, they're weak to metal; kick their ass with metal!"
offbeatwitch: fuck yeah this game has a rad aesthetic
angryoptimist: *just
electroswagnetism: I think the green one is secretly a bunch of snakes in a school uniform
bpcl: They can't help it, that's the power
Pariah164: @8_Escape Because metal, bruh
SydPreviouslyHeadache: how do i spell that?
bpcl: Just like how metal fans are weak to Taylor Swift
FITorion: only one I recognize is Black Rose ... Dot Hack
GDwarf: I'd love to know if the reference was in the original or if it was a localization thing
GDwarf: SydPreviouslyHeadache Urusei Yatsura?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: that's it i think, thank you
Shparky2197: Though I appreciate the whole, "oh it's probably a student music video project. You can even see the poor workmanship on the alien costumes. Yeah, totally fake"
SixPairsOfFeet: my take is that most of these aliens totally dig metal music, but their society has been destroyed by aliens getting too much into metal
Nightvalien28: heck
SixPairsOfFeet: so these are metal fans from the alien world enjoying the metal
GDwarf: We destroyed their civilization, I don't think they're underestimating us
SydPreviouslyHeadache: yeah that was it, thank you
SixPairsOfFeet: at the same time, the Purity Squad™ aliens are there to pulverize the planet
cuttlefishman: This art style reminds me of the Dragon Jet Fighter girls anime from the last year
cuttlefishman: anyone else get that?
TehAmelie: whoa, we wrecked their planet with our metal?
8_Escape: Did they just Team Rocket you?
solsesshiro: Dragon Pilot?
cuttlefishman: Maso-Tan
AlonsoSwift: Just got here, apparently in time for the weirdest Climax Reasoning segment ever?
GDwarf: TehAmelie Apparently the golden record on the Voyager probe had metal music on it, which destroyed their civilization
FITorion: right to left...
angryoptimist: katesLol
sjcTheos: limesBully
red_shoes_jeff: Why not?
Shparky2197: Oh right, apparently Carl Sagan was actually really anti alien, sending that Golden Record and all
Pariah164: LOL
Pariah164: Don't bully my waifu!!
cuttlefishman: Yeah, Hisone to Masotan
TehAmelie: no one can destroy the metal♫
Rhynerd: And now the survivors intend o destroy mankind.
Aenir798: the 2nd GIG? geez
cuttlefishman: this art reminds... a lot of Hisone to Masotan
Feminine_Desires: anniHYPE anniHYPE anniHYPE anniHYPE anniHYPE
GDwarf: Ah, my favourite Cowboy Bebop episode, "See ya later, Jupiter"
Nightvalien28: that was a long reach for that joke
sjcTheos: The aliens tried to destroy the metal
Dared00: I love this game so much
NovaTiempo: >INCOMMING!<
Feminine_Desires: Incoming!
NathanJay_GA: Raid incoming...
Aenir798: what is with this game!?
FickleMuse: That's an amazing aesthetic
Shparky2197: I think it was all music they had an issue with, but I don't recall offhand what was on the Golden Record
Earthenone: this game is aesthetic as all hell
gravity_pike: cult?
SixPairsOfFeet: @sjcTheos but they were blasted to the ground
Dared00: Kvlt!
DJ_Sucre: not a kvlt
TehAmelie: brace the chat!
electroswagnetism: KVLT is the most metal stat
Metric_Furlong: what's the LD 50 for anime references? Kappa
GDwarf: Kilo-volts, maybe?
strgrv: Ben raid incoming!
solsesshiro: By the way guys, just for the record, the story-mode is stupidly easy. You can basically just swing the joycons completely at random and win. At least as far as I got (6-7 performances?)
Himyul: KVLT... is that a radio station?
Shparky2197: Oh that's what that was
cuttlefishman: kvlt is more or less how metal you are
cuttlefishman: is a metal term
SixPairsOfFeet: haha
Juliamon: lrrHORN Incoming Raid lrrHORN
GDwarf: Her home is a liquor store
Shparky2197: Wait what?

GDwarf: Plot summary so far: We're an average high school boy that aliens fused with a high school girl and now we have to play metal music to drive off the aliens who want to destroy the Earth because the golden record on the Voyager probe had metal music on it that destroyed their civilization.
Sektor88: If they hate metal, can we just blast babymetal at them on loop for 24/7? Automate the defense process? Kappa
Shparky2197: Thank @GDwarf. That's an accurate summary
Metric_Furlong: bpcl they're not very clever aliens

solsesshiro: I used landscape when phones were smaller
angryoptimist: METAL
Makimachine: Android. <3
SixPairsOfFeet: my first android had a slide-out keyboard <3 so good
Rhynerd: Got too used to having to do it in portrait.
Aenir798: This game has some very deep lore
sjcTheos: slide out keyboards were da bomb
SydPreviouslyHeadache: one of thems missing?

electroswagnetism: Y/N Y/N
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Plute nose ian
Ignatiuspants: Kia typed all of that immediately after hiding from the teacher?
Keab42: Plutonium Y/N
GrandLlamaQ: "Doc, you can't just walk into a corner store and buy Plutonium!"
8_Escape: So would the topic for that discussion be Topics w/ Y/N in the title Y/N?
FireBasilisk53: not putting Y/N in the topic: Y/N
NathanJay_GA: what in the world
Ignatiuspants: this chat session is moving a little fast
solsesshiro: Y/N: Y/N?
Lithobraker: bpcl my theory is that the aliens are just really like metal and aren't actually planning to destroy the earth
Invitare: yeah, nah
SixPairsOfFeet: does this game ever add more than just the two drums and a both-at-the-same-time?
sjcTheos: What does Y/N stand for any why do we end every convo title with it? Y/N
electroswagnetism: There's no way I would ever stay in this group chat
tipulsar85: You can use messenger in landscape in current revisions of Android.
SixPairsOfFeet: it kind of sounds like you're hitting the bass drum with one hand and the snare with the other?
angryoptimist: "Level up the pentagram!" -> !advice
Miss_Katherine: oooo so whats this?
bpcl: Lithobraker Alien metal fans know what would make a good metal album
Earthenone: GUTS!
Keab42: So which one of those is KVLT?
solsesshiro: @SixPairsOfFeet No. Only in handheld mode. every other mode is just the kick and snare
SixPairsOfFeet: ah, so in handheld mode you tap on on-screen buttons, right?
EJGRgunner: that buzzing noise is in no way annoying
SydPreviouslyHeadache: I still don't know what that heart thing with it's head cracked open is supposed to represent
solsesshiro: Yes
SixPairsOfFeet: how many does it have? :D
Sektor88: ruhroh
Sektor88: we Persona 5 now
splatty1: persona?
8_Escape: Persona 5 much?
cuttlefishman: Is this Princess Maker
electroswagnetism: oh no this game is cooooomplicated
tipulsar85: Suddenly persona...
Lithobraker: bpcl fighting alien invaders with is pretty damn metal
aWabbajack: info overload
ArcOfTheConclave: Metal Spirit!
Edgarware: it IS a dating sim!
Keab42: Now the game truly begins!

NimrodXIV: yikes

Jorge4hg: Galrsona
angryoptimist: Whoa. This seems neat, though.
Dared00: Galsona
SydPreviouslyHeadache: this is involved
Rockario: Like, maybe it's suppose to mean "I love this!" because it's an embodied Heart saying "This!" ??
red_shoes_jeff: lrrSPOOP
Th3HolyMoose: damn, this game is indepth :D
solsesshiro: I think, maybe.
splatty1: when do we get a metal persona/stand?
PMAvers: We live here now.
tehfewl: Its dating sim time
RealGamerCow: oh god, its the same font as Persona right?
Sektor88: Upgrade social links to unlock better drums Kappa
bpcl: It's already been way too fucking long since there was any metal
ReverseCreations: S.Links!
Ignatiuspants: join an activity with a bandmate! there's a dating mechanic!
SixPairsOfFeet: did they just put a boy into the girl's body so that dating the other ones is still technically hetero?
accountmadeforants: This is exactly the right amount of information, I'm sure
cuttlefishman: A+ @electroswagnetism
bpcl: That's what I would do if I was a guy in a girl's head

Erudite_Cynic: i thought Kvlt said Knit
Saulens181: @sixpairsoffeet ...fuck.
Shparky2197: Using messenger in Android in landscape mode usually relies on whether you can rotate the screen in the current screen. So on messenger and for chat heads in apps that can rotate, you can use landscape mode. However, if you have chat heads on your home screen or apps that don't let you rotate the screen, you can't use messenger in landscape.
Earthenone: since you are two people sharing a body. maybe you should each use one joycon? lrrBEEJ
Miss_Katherine: is Kvlt a real word then?
Shparky2197: That took way to long to type up
Sektor88: secret ending for no stat increases? :P
solsesshiro: Someone just said it was some kind of metal term
SixPairsOfFeet: yeah! archon mode!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Clothing store has a book over her head
Aenir798: @Earthenone But only one actually has any control over the body

solsesshiro: Agreed
SydPreviouslyHeadache: all caps: You are a puppet x4 I am a puppet x4
Rhynerd: Paid mannequin.
red_shoes_jeff: When can I start!?
Sektor88: wait, workign part time lowered our passion?
PMAvers: "Please do not touch the mannequin."
Shparky2197: I mean, I'd love to have that job, but that's not good for being less shy
korvys: Arcade!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: well dang it, now i made myself want to listen to ziltoid
bpcl: Shady Shop! That looks legit!
Ignatiuspants: headcanon: the main character is genderfluid, and all the aliens did was separate the sides of their personality into two voices.... I'll accept this right up until some new evidence comes on screen that the boy ever had a physical form
Rhynerd: Not sure if that’s better or worse than having to operate somethinf.
Sharkfists: Zone out! Just spend hours staring at a wall!
TehAmelie: is it the living statue act or just working with customers that increases guts you think?
Lithobraker: Shparky2197 I feel like part of the job would be dancing around to music in the clothes
GDwarf: Go to the arcade, with luck there'll be a cat there that can offer us guidance!
hawkfalcon8: arcade!!!!!
solsesshiro: @Ignatiuspants He had a body in the intro. It might be gone now, we don't know
SixPairsOfFeet: but maybe the body was just an illusion
korvys: I think the green one is the bass player, isn't she?
hawkfalcon8: awwww
Rockario: If your time at the arcaed leaves you kvult-ing, please consult a doctor
Ignatiuspants: the intro was clearly a dream
Anubis169: haaaaai Ian and Heather! lrrAWESOME

gravity_pike: it's the gig economy, ian
Keab42: Can you choose whether to work or play at each place?

Shparky2197: Aren't there labour laws against 1 hour shifts in Japan? I'm honestly curious
Sarah_Serinde: lrrHERE
splatty1: your home is the book store now
Earthenone: maybe the rule is if you only work one hour you dont have to claim it as income on your taxes
starlitdiscord: #TeamChaos

TehAmelie: hmm in sweden you don't pay taxes if you earn less than ~100 dollars but that could work too
GDwarf: cuttlefishman XSEED Games AKA Marvelous USA
HydraWiggins: #NotAKvlt
Rhynerd: @sixpairsoffeet yeah, that’s it!
SixPairsOfFeet: 100 dollars is a really really low spot for 0% tax to stop :o
tipulsar85: Is it time to quote Batman in Fortunate Son?
Th3HolyMoose: It's $2000 per year for no tax
Th3HolyMoose: in Sweden
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: i just got here and the vibration sound is tilting me
chickenace11: Cats are major Metal fans
cuttlefishman: Cats are Kvlt af
Metric_Furlong: cats come with built-in guitar picks
GDwarf: "Jupiter to Kichijoji Line" is an interesting song name
GDwarf: "DeadHysteria" and "Utopia" for the rhythms
Feminine_Desires: Those are some 3D anime animations ...
SydPreviouslyHeadache: and this is already beyond what i can do
SixPairsOfFeet: someone asked if telephone pole was the bass player, but it looks like blue haired girl actually has only 4 strings on hers
Painfully_Dyslexic: is this game only motion control?
GDwarf: I do love our bassist just getting into the groove back there
TheNerdWonder: Ian, you have the hands reversed
bpcl: Oh shit the guitar riff for this is a lot better
Rhynerd: Isn’t Blue hair the bass?
Feminine_Desires: Ian has the hands reversed yay
electroswagnetism: blue hair is bass
GDwarf: Oh, I thought Green hair was the bass
Jorge4hg: ian is reversed irl
Metric_Furlong: blue is bass, green is rhythm guitar
SixPairsOfFeet: @Painfully_Dyslexic i've been told if you use handheld mode you get on-screen buttons for different parts of the drumkit
Countjondi: this is not my thing, yet im glad this exists
Lithobraker: in the US the standard deduction means that $12,000 per year isn't income taxed. still Social Security taxed though
GDwarf: Ian's getting the combos, so he's not using the wrong hands
Jorge4hg: Neat
bpcl: omg please more metal
SixPairsOfFeet: it was inevitable for this to exist, but not for this to end up outside of japan :D
cuttlefishman: METAL
tuckamanian: they are giving out a lot of metal points
VoidByAnyOtherName: ware ware wa uuuuchuuujin daaa
hawkfalcon8: WE GOT THE POWER!
Nigouki: um
MistahFixIt: Hey aliens leave my cat Ganymede alone! lrrEFF
Aenir798: UH
red_shoes_jeff: Ganymede?
angryoptimist: Um.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: OH they gonna Majora's Mask us
bpcl: Metal math does not allow metal points on a less than 1000x scale
Nigouki: that's a bit much
DJ_Sucre: An whole Ganymede
RatekStormcrow: Heather is best alien.
Theycallmejokke: Whelp
Jorge4hg: Sure
solsesshiro: @tuckamanian Yeah, it's actually nearly impossible to fail songs in story mode
tipulsar85: Next Ian, remember to use swap the colors mentally...
SixPairsOfFeet: who needs oxygen
ArcOfTheConclave: A colony drop?
chickenace11: What could possibly go wrong here?
ancientspark: Jupiter magical girl
red_shoes_jeff: There's closer shit than Ganymede, c'mon!
Ignatiuspants: they'd just move the Earth to an orbit further away from the sun? man, that's cold...
Jorge4hg: Not wrong
Sektor88: Ian "clickbaiting the henshin" horner
Lithobraker: Wait, does the sun just get super dim from being so far away?
Metric_Furlong: Ignatiuspants boo!
ArcOfTheConclave: the other half is magic
chickenace11: Is the other half disguises
Tiber727: Is the other half a combination of red lasers and blue lasers?
electroswagnetism: why not just... send the earth to the sun?
splatty1: so what does noodle mode mean?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: good thing we can breath
GDwarf: I have a physica problem with this setup
Keab42: I feel like this would be a good game without the weird alien angle
bpcl: hol
Shparky2197: Wait, where's the air?
chicken_fajitas: what platforms is this game available on?
Aenir798: but sound doesn't work in a vacuum
Rhynerd: @electroswagnetism that’s test 3 probably.
Aenir798: also how breathe
Shparky2197: Why is there air?
Dared00: this game is pretty unrealistic
Lithobraker: cuttlefishman by the power of metal
Metric_Furlong: cuttlefishman the power of Metal
Jorge4hg: Magic
Earthenone: as far as i know switch exculsive
Aenir798: My immersion is ruined
chickenace11: If this was an anime I would watch it
cuttlefishman: fair enough, by the power of metal
Jorge4hg: I mean Metal Magic
Sektor88: @cuttlefishman they're so skilled they break the laws of physics.
SixPairsOfFeet: you are immersed in the vacuum of outer space
ARandomPlatypus: Metal transcends logic
Ignatiuspants: @Aenir798 um, actually, the sound is being conducted through METAL
solsesshiro: @splatty1 It changes the way the joycons register a "hit". In noodle mode you can just swing tem around, but in hard mode you actually have to swing and stop as if you were hitting a drum
Earthenone: what are spaceships made of? thats righ METAL
bpcl: this riff is better than like the actual metal I listen to
Jorge4hg: They're that good
Tempest2097: Also Hi Heather and Ian. And Hi Chat.
Earthenone: checkmate
VoidByAnyOtherName: can't breathe in vacuum? no problem, fill the space with METAL
Rhynerd: @electroswagnetism “so you’ve handled energy weapons and physical weapons, let’s see you handle teleportation. You have four days to stop us from teleporting Earth into the sun.”
cuttlefishman: @chickenace11 The Legend of Black Heaven is an older anime about how Metal Saves the Earth
Shparky2197: Also, A) Aliens are still enjoying this, and B) Why are the aliens on a rock on a collision course with EArth?
Shparky2197: B*)
cuttlefishman: more of a hair metal thing though
tuckamanian: Metal is the 4th dimension
chickenace11: @cuttlefishman I will have to check that out
VoidByAnyOtherName: what's utopia
VoidByAnyOtherName: deadhysteria?
GDwarf: VoidByAnyOtherName A drum rhythm
Metric_Furlong: Shparky2197 I think it's been fairly well-established that the aliens are not the best at their jobs
Rhynerd: A rhythm comvo
Sektor88: wow, these guys ain't shit
Nightvalien28: METAL POWER
Tempest2097: HELL YEAH
Rhynerd: Certain rhythm sets are named.
Jorge4hg: Nice
cuttlefishman: METAL
Zalbaag: So, is the last song just going to be the theme from Black Heaven?
Shparky2197: I mean, yeah that's fair
solsesshiro: Black Heaven's the one where the guy accidentally flips off some giant black guy, right?
bpcl: I want this game
solsesshiro: That's literally the only thing I know about it
ArcOfTheConclave: What if this is just a ploy by aliens to get free concerts?
Shparky2197: Wait, headcanon. Aliens really like metal, and are just being tsundere about it?
Jorge4hg: I'm having a great time with this game
red_shoes_jeff: Love it
electroswagnetism: that's not very secret :<
Ignatiuspants: for some reason, I really want the last song to be a thrash metal cover of "Invaders Must Die"
cuttlefishman: seems pretty anime @Shparky2197
8_Escape: Maybe your KVLT level?
cuttlefishman: so... legit
Rhynerd: So many secret bonuses
Mivair: Are we playing heavy metal to stop an invasion?
solsesshiro: Yes
GDwarf: Mivair Yes
Sektor88: @Mivair yup
Tempest2097: @Mivair Do we need a reason?
Mivair: Because that rocks in the most literal sense of the word
Metric_Furlong: Mivair very yes
Jorge4hg: Yeah
Reecer6: weird to me how much you're allowed to freestyle in what is presumably an established and practiced song
Painfully_Dyslexic: If you're enjoy the music but don't listen to a lot of metal I'd recommend a band called "Animals as Leaders"
ancientspark: Apparently, someone has watched too much Macross
korvys: Are they good, or just forgiving?
Keab42: In terms of weirdness this is up there with the Tank Dating Simulator.
Lazarus_18: @Mivair The metal on the Golden Disc destroyed their civilization.
tipulsar85: Break?
Mivair: @Lazarus_18 That's kind of fantastic???
angryoptimist: These girls are living the dream--they're literally playing metal in space and saving the world with their hobby/craft.
chickenace11: Why is your character the only normal looking one out of your band
solsesshiro: Japanese protag rules
Jelkimantis: Wait, do the octopods know they can just listen to metal on Spotify?
Metric_Furlong: chickenace11 they're actually two people who have been fused
Mivair: Because if you look normal you aren't part of a metal band
bpcl: This song is legit 100x better than the entire Wolfsbane catalog
Nightvalien28: kerbla
angryoptimist: I'd say the bassist and tall lady are pretty normal.
Theycallmejokke: Team Rocket blasts of again
Lithobraker: Did we just destroy Ganymede??!
Metric_Furlong: so we just blew-up Ganymede
angryoptimist: RIP moon.
Jorge4hg: omg it is

Rockario: I really like this kind of divorcing a style of music from it's usual aesthetics.
cuttlefishman: must've
GDwarf: I'd be surprised if they hadn't been
GDwarf: Though it probably wasn't the same people doing both localizations. XSEED contracts out lots, 'cause they're a small company

Tempest2097: I remember it from SimTower.
Nightvalien28: screw the rules, we have metal power
VoidByAnyOtherName: caaaawwww caaawwww :V
tehfewl: not reading half of it? just like a real group chat
Rockario: That is the kind of chat youget when one person says, "Let's talk about the rules."
solsesshiro: Play
solsesshiro: Not work
korvys: You need the pink one
angryoptimist: Play tab.
Dared00: Play!
cuttlefishman: Don't Work at it, Play
angryoptimist: PLAY TAB
korvys: Play tab!
ARandomPlatypus: PLAY TAB
Feminine_Desires: @LoadingReadyRun don't use the work tab
Tempest2097: Play tab?
GDwarf: OK chat, they'll see it or they won't, don't need to spam
Rockario: Can we switch tabs to spend our time dddifferently? Oh, lookslike we can!
VoidByAnyOtherName: :o
Rhynerd: Play the rental shop?
Aenir798: phew
crassiopia: METAL THEATER
korvys: Zombieland reference?
SixPairsOfFeet: Metal Theater 3000?
RealGamerCow: Zombie 5K
solsesshiro: Performed by Kichijoji Metal Girls!
crassiopia: oh it says metal club theater
Nightvalien28: I mean there is a cardio app that is running from zombies, so she is not wrong
Sektor88: Finally!
Sektor88: I was wondering that :P
Sektor88: Ah, so it's the Macross Delta effect?
korvys: The guitarist is Beej?
TheNerdWonder: and Ian's gone full Fat Albert
jpost042: poetic?
AlonsoSwift: What's this about CQC?
Nightvalien28: the rules of metal cqc
GDwarf: I love that the localizer just had to go "I'm shrinking her text, it can't fit otherwise"
red_shoes_jeff: I mean, pre-recorded metal started all this...
Rockario: RAW is prerecorded, Smackdown is live lrrBEEJ
crassiopia: ian "louis armstrong" horner
Aenir798: We already established pre-recorded metal can destroy their civilization
Sektor88: Yeah, your passion took a hit earlier on when yoiu boosted something else
Rhynerd: And we’ve measured how much damage can be dealt with live metal.
VTMonster: need some staminax
Rhynerd: We can blow up a moon with enough live metal.
Sektor88: enigmaLUL
Tempest2097: That's a heck of a plan
SixPairsOfFeet: how can metal fight against a giant magnet?
GDwarf: Octolings are in both Splatoons
cuttlefishman: Is this... is this a magical girl game?
Sektor88: is splatoon an anime? Kappa
cuttlefishman: Technically?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: should have hired Majima
Earthenone: kids vs squids
angryoptimist: But in splatoon you're both squids AND kids--that means you steal their power! Kappa
Rhynerd: Splatoon is the Xcom 2 of Gal Metal, as somebody said.
GDwarf: "My Very Excited Monster Just Sat Upon Neptune" is the song name
GDwarf: Which is the initialism for the planets, so well done there
ElementalAlchemist: I get it, it's the planets mnemonic!
SixPairsOfFeet: but aren't squids and octopi different?
AlonsoSwift: RUDIMENTS
Rhynerd: What would be the good ending sequel to this game?
ElementalAlchemist: Except they used "Neptune" for "Neptune," so
Tempest2097: I really feel like this needs two bass pedals.
GDwarf: Mnemonic, that's the word I wanted
AegeusEvander: is this an improv rhythm game?
GDwarf: AegeusEvander Yup
SixPairsOfFeet: yup, improv rhythm game
cuttlefishman: The ending of X-Com 1 @Rhynerd ?
Reecer6: kool metal gals
SydPreviouslyHeadache: *school* metal club?
Ignatiuspants: "Kichijoji Metal Gals"
solsesshiro: @LoadingReadyRun Kichijoji Metal Girls
GDwarf: I assume the "M" is "Metal", and the "G" would be "Gals"
crassiopia: sKool
Rhynerd: Probably, but why stop there?
tipulsar85: K___ Metal Girls
SydPreviouslyHeadache: oh it's a g
SixPairsOfFeet: skvvl metal klvb
Rockario: @AegeusEvander Basically, and I love it
crassiopia: kvlt metal gals
vidStrickland: This game sure yells HARLOT a lot
Sektor88: the damage numbers PogChamp
crassiopia: HARLOY
crassiopia: shit
Jorge4hg: Heather rocking it
Sektor88: still nice tho :P
8_Escape: On the one hand you beat them handily but I feel like you could practice a bit.
GDwarf: The secret beats, that David played and it pleased the...sheep?
Rhynerd: That’s more than enough metal to blow up a moon!
boristhewizard: Needs more kvlt
splatty1: you got a toxic beat, whatever that was
cuttlefishman: Onsen episode time!
ElementalAlchemist: That "whoosh" and the other character on the side made it look like a fart
Aenir798: Heavy metal created an onsen
TehAmelie: "secret beats" [to the tune of chocolate rain]
FoxFyr: Its still tripping me out that they have over $10,000 in equipment. Im assuming that the rich bassist's family donated a few thousand dollars worth of ESP custom shop instruments and Roland Keyboards
GDwarf: "Salad, that word should have a different meaning to us all today" um...
cuttlefishman: This localizatio
e_bloc: cheer265 just get a burger is great advice
Aenir798: Ah yes, the 4th gig, the Day of Independence
Earthenone: because its the 4th!
Nightvalien28: REFERENCES
Ignatiuspants: I love these references
VoidByAnyOtherName: what are these references omg
Tempest2097: YES
RealGamerCow: obligatory hot spring episode?
Lithobraker: "Uranus just sat upon my very excited monster" was absolutely the original name of that song
Jorge4hg: NEAT
Rockario: Today is the day of our Independance DAY!
Tempest2097: Reference game on point
xCelticWolf: Is it a reference to beast and the harlot by a7x
tipulsar85: President Pullman? When did you get here?
Reecer6: some sort of solar cycle whereupon we will attain freedom
GDwarf: That's a flying squid saucer
Ignatiuspants: and the whole anime/manga aesthetic is pretty great too
AlonsoSwift: Now I'm remembering that Desert Bus bit where Beej (as Derek) did the Independence Day speech
VoidByAnyOtherName: we shall not go quietly into the night
GDwarf: This really *is* a Splatoon prequel!
Sektor88: hahah
SydPreviouslyHeadache: oh are we introducing a third person to shove into a body?
jpost042: "better"?
Jorge4hg: much better
Nightvalien28: huzzah?
splatty1: wait, squids now
cuttlefishman: this is literally splatoon
GDwarf: "You have been chosen" "What, again?"
Nightvalien28: it is splatoon
splatty1: this is splatoon??????
Rhynerd: Are the squids a rival faction?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: huh
solsesshiro: Yes and no Rhynerd
Nightvalien28: do they have sushi?
Earthenone: i reallly hope it does
hollatheforestfairy just subscribed with Twitch Prime!

SydPreviouslyHeadache: oh, solid plan
splatty1: hasn't cam played this culture in stelaris? Kappa
chickenace11: IT'S Beej eats the whole thing: alien edition
red_shoes_jeff: D E A D
SixPairsOfFeet: metal butt powers: ACTIVATE
VoidByAnyOtherName: at least your butt is indestructible
Dared00: You best fill yourselves with nutrias
Jorge4hg: anime bump
Earthenone: we have the combined resiliance of two teeagers!
Faaln: metal makes you immune to the negative effects of gravity
ElementalAlchemist: Sweet, we survived that somehow
GDwarf: We have the terminal velocity of two humans! Wait, no, that'd be worse...
angryoptimist: "Squid Y/N"
angryoptimist: lrrWOW
Rhynerd: “Hey better deal, how about you guys help us destroy the octarian empire with the power of metal?”
SixPairsOfFeet: maybe the air resistance of two humans?
chickenace11: No squids
cuttlefishman: nice
angryoptimist: G U T S
SixPairsOfFeet: but only the weight of a little teenage girl?
TheNerdWonder: turns out squids are repelled by jazz
Reecer6: the group chat is so quick
FickleMuse: slytqItsFine
Earthenone: lrrFIRE
red_shoes_jeff: lrrCOW
Reecer6: i bet they wouldn't even notice if you made a typo
Erudite_Cynic: the buzz is making me look at my phone every few seconds
embyrr922: benginBurn
solsesshiro: I've been trying to find the emotes from this game since I got it
Aenir798: @Reecer6 Heather is speeding through it
splatty1: try out non noodle style?
jpost042: going to school is optional?
solsesshiro: This is after school jpost042
Earthenone: it think it is bonus school
Ignatiuspants: I still don't understand the "This" emoji thing -- a broken heart with the handsome Superman face with the ladies' restroom symbol for a body, and the word "THIS" coming out of where the heart is open...
jpost042: bonus school sounds bad
GDwarf: Does spending time with friends up your affinity with them?
Lithobraker: I think it's like KUMON for extra school
solsesshiro: Although, the chatroom segments all take play at school, so yes, school is optional.
Earthenone: working at a cafe is also on brand for the stream
solsesshiro: Yes GDwarf
SAJewers: heh
Rhynerd: I imagine the chats are during free periods.
Rhynerd: Or between classes.
Dared00: Maybe train?
SixPairsOfFeet: nope, they totally chat during class sometimes
Aenir798: go to practice?
red_shoes_jeff: PRACTICE
Jorge4hg: practice?
Rhynerd: Let’s practice!
solsesshiro: The background is the classroom and different members refer to avoiding teachers more than once, so I think it's during class
splatty1: practice
VoidByAnyOtherName: oh no wonder, aoki toshinao did the chara designs
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: practice?
Earthenone: you must gather your band before venturing forth
Ignatiuspants: ooh...
AlonsoSwift: This is where the dating sim happens Kappa
Rhynerd: Thinking about it, does anyone think this band would become another 2 drummer band once they defeat the aliens?
subrand0m: I think when you do things with the band mates is how you bump up their scores
Rockario: Oo, these are some of my favourite beats
solsesshiro: When you practice it shows you the Hot rhythms for the upcoming performance. Hot rhythms are rated more highly than others.
Ignatiuspants: so that's at least two drum sequences named after Metallica Songs
Rockario: Like these two specifically
splatty1: are you able to scroll through the other rhythm sections?
solsesshiro: Yes, in solo practice
Reecer6: i wanna see you mess the rest of the band up by playing a swing
GDwarf: What determines if you combo something or not?
Rockario: Wait, those headdings are a whole huge beat library!? I'm definitely getting this game
Rhynerd: @rockario yep, the hot tab is just the two sets that can work best for the situation at hand.
Ignatiuspants: oh man, maybe if you'd played in the arcade with Kia you could have found her playing one of those
Rhynerd: Yes.
Rhynerd: But they got teleported back out of space.
solsesshiro: Yeah that happened. In the second chapter.
angryoptimist: They've been further from the earth than human has ever been before!
RatekStormcrow: Every Metal Band worth their salt has gone to space...
angryoptimist: *than any human
Rhynerd: We’re talking long term space inhabiting here.
Sektor88: enigmaLUL
SixPairsOfFeet: isn't it illegal to grow high school girls?
cuttlefishman: No, avg high school girl is prob above 2k calories
RealGamerCow: sweet breads, not sweetbreads.
RealGamerCow: :D
e_bloc: Ian's teen girl squad voice is great
TehAmelie: we are the moral metal!
VoidByAnyOtherName: what do you need morality for?
TehAmelie: see above
8_Escape: Don't forget to practice.
red_shoes_jeff: P R A C T I C E
GDwarf: We're in grade 2-4, so presumably grade -2
AlonsoSwift: You're watching documentaries? You're realizing how much you suck at karaoke? I dunno
Rhynerd: Morality is your knowledge, right?
Earthenone: maybe try solo practice to see the beats
VoidByAnyOtherName: do you become a metal band of delinquents if your morality is too low?
silverstar216: wait is this on the switch?
Jorge4hg: Nice ian
Earthenone: yes it is @silverstar216
Dared00: @silverstar216 yup
solsesshiro: silverstar216 yes
silverstar216: Cool! Thanks
Feminine_Desires: swap the controller's around
TheNerdWonder: they do. I think those are other patterns
Feminine_Desires: Or play crosshanded
Aenir798: isn't it because you're holding them reversed
solsesshiro: Keep those cymbals in mind, by the way. They're important later.
splatty1: ians just been doing it backwards for a while I think
FickleMuse: They don't? I've been confused at least
Jorge4hg: I think so too
korvys: I'm pretty sure you can play them either way. I noticed a while ago that Ian was playing with the "wrong" colour for one of the patterns
FickleMuse: Yeah. I thought they were crossed
SydPreviouslyHeadache: what is that heart thing emote supposed to be?
PressStartToFinish: It's really wigging me out that when you swing the blue joycon it's the orange effect on the screen and swinging the orange joycon gives the blue effect.
Feminine_Desires: Yeah cross your arms when playing or swap the controllers.
angryoptimist: Q: is the bird the word? The word is the bird?
angryoptimist: Kappa
Earthenone: TL note Cake means Drugs
azureHaights: All about that cake, 'bout that cake
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: an extreme longing for cake?
Jorge4hg: Time Travel Cake 50 dollars
Aenir798: TL note: cake means keikaku
Feminine_Desires: Cross the arms or swap the controllers?
solsesshiro: @LoadingReadyRun Do note that once you "clear" a practice it takes your stamina and makes you pay to come back
Rhynerd: Whoops
tuckamanian: can you try abyss or Beast?
GDwarf: So, this game got mixed reviews, but this has definitely sold me on it
Aenir798: Maybe it's because in drumming you generally cross your arms
SixPairsOfFeet: mhh i love being punished for success
Rhynerd: How do you change tabs in this game?
Rockario: Is it color switched AND side switched?
red_shoes_jeff: CHAOS
Sektor88: chowse Kappa
Rhynerd: No chaos rhythms yet.
PressStartToFinish: "Rhythm not created" is what people tell me every time I try to dance.
angryoptimist: If you don't create the rhythm, you won't attract the worm... Kappa
Rockario: *gasp* Do we have to unlock beats by freestyling them if we want it before the story brings it in?
Jorge4hg: nail it
solsesshiro: @Rockario Yes
SAJewers: lrrHORN
TehAmelie: when the seafood strikes back
SixPairsOfFeet: will there be a chef finger kiss?
cuttlefishman: Drum vs. knife
cuttlefishman: makes sense
korvys: French squid ninjas...
GDwarf: This *is* a Splatoon prequel!
SydPreviouslyHeadache: smash those symbols
Makimachine: He sounds like Londo Mollari. XD
TehAmelie: you're a metal kid now, you're a metal squid now. . .
GDwarf: Toxic18 seems almost too easy
SixPairsOfFeet: be a real pro and hold the controllers with arms crossed
angryoptimist: These girls have great production value--they've even got pyro.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: at least these guys are dizzy and not just headbanging along
solsesshiro: Any actual drummer out there want to enlighten me as to why that's a thing? Crossing your arms, I mean.
8_Escape: 656thousand points.
angryoptimist: Well, those squids sure got rekt.
Rhynerd: Less than it takes to blow up Ganymede.
tipulsar85: lrrHERE
J4Y_4NDY: Talk about going to Achievement City
SydPreviouslyHeadache: I really like Ians french
SydPreviouslyHeadache: uhh Kia quick nab one
stevestein: This music = "Awwwwwww yeah"
angryoptimist: #MadScience
TehAmelie: cheese it, it's the fuzz
angryoptimist: ^
GDwarf: I mean, Luna is *kinda* like a police person
cuttlefishman: Is Washiohone a reference to something?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: I love how the drums are disposable
azureHaights: TSOP
tipulsar85: Get to Choppah!
SixPairsOfFeet: TL;DR: early on, hi-hat use called for more precision, and predominantly right-handed drummers wanted to hit the hi-hat with their right hand, but the base drum couldn't be moved to the side, so the hi-hat was on the left
angryoptimist: Apex? Crossover with Starbound?
AlonsoSwift: It was the best of predators, it was the worst of predators Kappa
DarkMorford: "washi no hane" is roughly "Eagle's Feather"
solsesshiro: Huh.
GDwarf: Apparently in "drum" mode you have to have a sharp stop at the end of each strike
solsesshiro: Correct
cuttlefishman: But is that a reference to something @DarkMorford ?
8_Escape: That's concerning. a 2million point goal.
SixPairsOfFeet: hm, but in real drums the stick will bounce back naturally?
TehAmelie: maybe you only get real points in drum mode. . .
DarkMorford: I don't think it's a direct reference to anything, but it's a common way Japanese schools are named.
angryoptimist: Ah, there we go.
ArcOfTheConclave: Is there going to be Calimari Inkantation in this game?
Rhynerd: @8_escape we hit a million once, didn’t we?
cuttlefishman: Unique background - this is the squidarians in jupiter?
Totalhobo: Can you actually play drums in this
Rhynerd: Or was it just 100,000 and I imagined another 0?
Totalhobo: like well
Totalhobo: or is it 2 notes
angryoptimist: Thought I saw 2mil as well?
solsesshiro: Story mode is -extremely- easy
Earthenone: i think we hit a million when we blew up that planet
Earthenone: or moon i guess
solsesshiro: Free play has actually challenging point goals
Kraest: Hello friends!
TehAmelie: yikes
Rhynerd: i’m pretty sure it takes 1mil metal points to destroy a weaponized ganymede
red_shoes_jeff: D E A D
angryoptimist: Might have been a little lrrGREED , there.
Rockario: Didd they modify the Noodle mode by taking a zero off of every score goal, cause that's neat
GDwarf: No, I think the free battles are just 10x as difficult
angryoptimist: Makes sense.
angryoptimist: That effectively makes it the challenge mode.
SkylerRingtail: Having just tuned in recently, where are the note prompts (or whatever equivalent there is)?
angryoptimist: And that's the replayability of a lot of these types of games.
solsesshiro: there are none @SkylerRingtail
Ignatiuspants: there are no note prompts! you just follow your heart and the game judges you
angryoptimist: @SkylerRingtail Doesn't have those--there's patterns, and you freely choose them.
silenceaux: Closer
GDwarf: Wo-ah, living on a prayer...
TehAmelie: if only we had a prayer
Rhynerd: We just get a list of rhythm sets and play what we know, or make our own.
Rockario: And "Drum mode" wants you to stop at a certain point to count as a hit? Cause that's a cool way to give more control over exactly when the beat hits, but makes it more work to mime
SkylerRingtail: Huh. That's a different idea. Thanks, chat.
TehAmelie: we'd be living with halfway there
Rhynerd: Back to noodle mode
Rockario: I really want to disect the game's scoring system, but feel like that would require a lot of experimentation.
solsesshiro: It's a little arcane
silenceaux: Does it reward changing up rhythm types a lot, or more keeping the same one for a long time...?
cuttlefishman: yes?
cuttlefishman: Both I think to a degree
Rockario: Scoring is exactly the problem I see when trying to visualise an "improv" music game, so this really interests me
TehAmelie: huh, over 3 million in practice
