TehAmelie: it's a dirty job, but chat's on it
Foxmar320: lrrSIGNAL
underhill33: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
wildpeaks: I suppose the pervasive role of technology in everyday life, or how the "hero" sees people as mere resources with no penalty to steal from innocents are interesting aspects to examine

mtvcdm: Just a quick note, Smackdown is on right now, but nobody please spoil Graham.
wildpeaks: ah, the innocence of youth
EldritchEldrazi: @LoadingReadyRun is there anywhere to suggest games for the stream?
korvys: Is this the hacker one, or the hong kong one?
Mewyabby: lrrWOW
D1cey1: The game that was going to show off next gen
Fableist: any chance of seeing you talk about watchdogs 2 as well? the first game has a lot of problems story wise that the 2 does so much better imo?
jonasjonIV: I get this and sleeping dogs confused.
CleverCrumbish: Quadrilateral Cowboy is the game about hacking Watch_Dogs should have been
aesir_blade: It's cyberjock
SnivianMoon: @CleverCrumbish Absolutely agreed.
TehAmelie: it's smartphone-punk
wildpeaks: 5 minutes into the future
BlindProphet32: Cyberpunk adjacent
DoctorOfBeard: cyber thriller?
darkalter2000: Why is the stream skipping?
brainbosh: This is much closer to Dystopian than Cyberpunk
Foxmar320: Its not skipping for me
azureHaights: Ooh, I'm not too late for the Graham & Cam Connection
hoktauri: fine here
mew4ever23: Like, you could do Watch dogs irl sometime next year, at the rate smarthome tech is advancing
tim19862: brick phones
Laserbeaks_Fury: This came out on the heels of Black Flag and promised to be a interesting new IP in a similar genre. Sadly, it was not
until_may: I am here to watch your dogs
EldritchEldrazi: you can call me
EldritchEldrazi: dog watcher
NathanJay_GA: Watch Dogs: Where Alexa *IS* the city

MousseFilledCat: Hello chat.
RebekahWSD: I had never read the book before I moved in with husband. He had this broken book on his shelf, so I snagged it. And then i fell in love. With the book, and with him.
SnivianMoon: The story in this game is utterly, utterly troubled and bad.

darkalter2000: The stream keeps pausing and skipping for me is it happening to anyone else?
Viewers_Like_You: I mean, the hacking is about on the level as a CSI-type show
TehAmelie: the part that endlessly amuses me is the hero's profiling program that puts together a file on everyone as you meet them based on their internet footprint and summarizes their personality in one word
Foxmar320: Yeah I hate the main character
wildpeaks: oh definitely

ContingentCat: seems like a bad system
SnivianMoon: The main character is also monumentally "Steve"
Awexdio: GreyHat
Nightvalien28: this is the steve of all steve
ContingentCat: hmm
mtvcdm: And then, surprise, you're a jerk.
aerobeing: Clara Lille is alive, dammit!
mew4ever23: Exactly. You're meant to be a vigilante, but you do a lot of bad things
DirgeNovak: Is it going to be WD 1 or 2?
MostCallMe__Tim: Do I hear alex laughing in the background?
EldritchEldrazi: @LoadingReadyRun apparent;y someone gifted me a sub to the channel
shurtal: "ludonarritive dissonance"
Viewers_Like_You: "I mean, he stole all my money, but he was wearing a neat coat while he did it"
mtvcdm: Subs get called out at the end of the stream.
Nightvalien28: you steal from people, you steal from people's health funds
until_may: @EldritchEldrazi merry chirstmas you fool
Foxmar320: Yeah I have no idea why the people in WD would like the main character.
EldritchEldrazi: @until_may tytytytyty
wildpeaks: it certainly applies here: mecanic and narrative are at odds
TehAmelie: to say nothing of what you can do on the way to objectives for fun and profit
EldritchEldrazi: @until_may this is the second sub I've ever been gifted
Fableist: watchdogs 1 wanted to be a batman story but ended up being a revenge story. watchdogs 2 does the vigilante hacker thing so much better.
wildpeaks: Vampyr is another example of this
until_may: @EldritchEldrazi i get random like that
Foxmar320: Yep
ContingentCat: for those of us who haven't particlarly heard that term, what does ludonaarritive dissodence mean
Nightvalien28: booker was a monster
atinyspacemarine: hey there party people
ContingentCat: there we go nevermind
Kykiwi: but those cnady bars do
Foxmar320: Also food in locked safes in Bioshock.
stgts: I mean, you have a lot of those options in WD2 and it felt a lot like the game asking YOU to make the moral choices rather than instituting a morality. the developers specifically emphasized that you could play the entire game without using guns
CleverCrumbish: @ContingentCat The things that we are TOLD in the narrative are dissonant with the things that we are SHOWN and allowed to DO
DirgeNovak: Ludoscababib Discobiscuits is prime Jimquisition
splatty1: I think I heard they also scrapped some of the vigilante story for watch dogs
Viewers_Like_You: Ludonarrative dissonance: GTA IV cutscenes being all "I'm sad about killing in the old country, hopefully USA is a new start", then gameplay immediately shifting to running over pedestrians willy-nilly
ContingentCat: @CleverCrumbish thanks
CantWearHats: oh Uplay
wildpeaks: udontplay ?
Kykiwi: ha uplay
Nightvalien28: uh oh
Foxmar320: welp
Aenir798: doh
Nightvalien28: we all have one but don't remember
Viewers_Like_You: Is it dickbutt?
until_may: try Dickbutt
Kykiwi: I have one also and also dont knwo my pw
quentastic: I remember someone describing the protagonist of watch dogs was an ***hole who the writers did not realise was an ***hole
SnivianMoon: UPlay is such a UPain
DirgeNovak: lol uplay
mew4ever23: It's always dickbutt
NathanJay_GA: Was Uplay necessary for this game?
ContingentCat: try dickbutt that's always the password
DoctorOfBeard: Dickbutt
Foxmar320: Yeah :(
aerobeing: Watch out! They will also block you for some time if you try too much with a wrong password.
Kthanid: Siege.
Questhere: the you plays
blip2004: Uplay sucks
DirgeNovak: udon't
TehAmelie: Child of Light is the only thing i've got there
e_bloc: charity100 as someone who was thoroughly underwhelmed by both of the Watch Dogs, I am excited for this. #charity

Foxmar320: I own a lot of Uplay games. Its not a great platform.
CantWearHats: right, Captain Pisscoat
NathanJay_GA: what characterization?
silvalunae: omg graham plz say "I'm in" when you log in
the_number_two2: CoL is an AMAZING game... they should do a Talking Sim about that...
Viewers_Like_You: Steve Watchdogs
wildpeaks: it has an icon on it
SnivianMoon: Aiden is the Ur-Steve
DirgeNovak: Wait. Did *Twitch* just subscribe?
korvys: Oh, Cameron, I started listening to Ben Frost based on you talking about him at DB. Did you know he composed the Rainbow 6 Siege soundtrack?
Aarek: IMO piss jacket was more iconic
CantWearHats: "but we had all these hats made..."
Nightvalien28: ah yes the iconic piss jacket
DoctorOfBeard: he is not mario
TehAmelie: big brain: saying "Hacker voice I'm in"
TriggerHappy2Pi: Also if you give bits do #charity
NathanJay_GA: @DirgeNovak Those messages are pretty common. I don;t know why it's happening
SAJewers: iirc jim sterling did a whole jimquisition on that ubisoft "iconic" thing
aerobeing: Spoilers.
DruthersHaver: also: fully spoiled
until_may: does badness upset people?
sugarsh0t: financial abuse?
Kykiwi: Umm there is wierd vouyer scenes
shurtal: there's some nudity, but you prolly wont get there
Viewers_Like_You: Content Warning: Fewer dogs than advertised.
mew4ever23: Stock M rated game warnings, spoilers if you care for a 4 year old game
DirgeNovak: A kid dies
Fableist: depending on how far you get there is sex slave stuff?
Brok3nGol3m: "M" for "Meep"
shurtal: also, sextrafficking
e_bloc: content warning: we're not actually watching dogs.
Rhynerd: A child does die.
Phosphatide: a graham talking simulator?? PogChamp
OriginalGarwulf: Yeah...I have an iconic hat, but that's because it's a STETSON. That particular brand has been associated with the Old West for over a century. That is iconic. A baseball cap in a not-released video game is not iconic.
Rhynerd: Early on.
brainbosh: There is some messed up stuff but thats deep in the surveilance footage
DoctorOfBeard: doens't a child die at the start?
aerobeing: Hacking!@
Foxmar320: Theres a GPLP if you wanted to watch the game.
mtvcdm: We did that subplot in GPLP.
e_bloc: you meant shurtal, but not really important
DirgeNovak: Aiden's motivation literally is avenging his niece's murder
aerobeing: Are image links allowed in this chat?
azureHaights: Ade N. Pierce
EldritchEldrazi: Aid'N peirce
silvalunae: it's in the game?
mew4ever23: That is actually not that far off
korvys: Aid'n'Pierce
Brok3nGol3m: Aid 'n Pierce = stimpak?
shurtal: Aid N. Pierce. You MUST aid Mr. Pierce
aerobeing: Clara Lille is alive, dammit!
Swamplor: I'm heading down to the Aid N' Pierce
tim19862: yeah
tim19862: neat effect
TehAmelie: "do you ask aid and succor?" "well, that's an odd way of saying 'stabbing' but sure"
wildpeaks: at least it certainly has an aesthetic
SnivianMoon: I do appreciate the stylization of the graphics, but the data moshing always made me wonder if my GPU was overheating.
aerobeing: I liked Sleeping Dogs better.
Foxmar320: Ubisoft E3 trailers lol
NexusVoxx: oh hey G on Talking Sim
DoctorOfBeard: Watch Dogs: To Aid and Pierce
Laserbeaks_Fury: Odyssey is pretty damn close
Jorge4hg: Sleeping Dogs is amazing
Ckiva: lmao DoctorOfBeard
mew4ever23: Trigger warning: Towers in an open world exploration game
DirgeNovak: Clara is played by a super well known Quebec actress and she's great in this
tim19862: crafting a fictional narrative for advertising? lrrBEEJ
mtvcdm: Whyyyyyy do 'you've been hacked lol' graphics always include a skull.
Awexdio: Watch_Dogs 2 was much better of a presentation. Still had it's problems but was a fun run and flowed better than #1
CantWearHats: it is extremely ubisoft
splatty1: also I remember the music being really good at times
Phosphatide: can we just stream nintendogs next time FrankerZ RalpherZ
TehAmelie: ah, Clara Lille, aka Lisbet Salander, aka Pippi Longstocking
wildpeaks: :D
mtvcdm: This game is doing it right here in the menu, there's Sombra...
Nightvalien28: its fine G, no one would steal this game
tim19862: whoops
BrewTapCast: So I just ignorantly came here thinking they would be watching actual dogs... I feel like an idiot. All the signs and I still didn't see it.
aerobeing: DirgeNovak, I kind of want a prequel with her.
Mysticman89: something about james that you totally could have played off as not a password
Foxmar320: Towers are a very Ubisoft gameplay thing
wildpeaks: everyone's favorite
aesir_blade: The cerebral assassin...
mtvcdm: Welcome to Chicago!
NathanJay_GA: Climbing radio towers was still kinda fresh when this game came out
Ckiva: Ade N. P. S.
PatchworkWit: Hi Graham and Cam!
Rockario: Swear G was going to say Maharaja
ButterBall000: Our hero Board Hardwood
Jorge4hg: the most interesting person in the game..
aesir_blade: Isn't ubi a french studio?
NarishmaReborn: he robs from the rich... and the poor... and gives to himself?
Laserbeaks_Fury: this was UbiSoft Montreal wasn't it?
DirgeNovak: Wow Screentear City
wildpeaks: merlaut with au, not o ? why ubisoft
Mysticman89: montreal, so ccandian french
orellien2773: This is totally legit hacking yo.
SpoonfullOfSugar: well it sometimes lives in the sea, therefore it's a Mer-Lot
NexusVoxx: @aesir_blade quebec, so kinda
Havok4: I really like the visual effects on the hackervision.
the_number_two2: Motion that Aiden be referred to as "Aid and Pierce" for the rest of th night
Aarek: "I'm in"
Nightvalien28: just stole money from that poor woman for no reason
CantWearHats: yup this is how hacking works
Ckiva: I love dogs, is this the stream for me?
CantWearHats: 100%
mtvcdm: t h e c l o u d
PenultiN00b: Naturally I knows the hacker
TriggerHappy2Pi: This sounds like a "bad guy" speech
DoctorOfBeard: sound could be higher
TheMagicWalrus: this game takes place in chicago right Illinoisans can't pronounce anything right
TehAmelie: basically he robs from anyone with a bank account who crosses his path and buys trendy clothes

Pteraspidomorphi: I know this, it's a unix system
mtvcdm: Yes, because hacking steals by one dollar at a time.
BlindProphet32: Aiden Pierce staring as Guy with a Cellphone Man
splatty1: so is this actually the internet-of-things-punk? Kappa
Armstrong11139: I like how this is actually dialogue. Not voiceover, not inner monologue, it's actually happening in the scene
Jorge4hg: gasp in code
AmoriLinguae: was this this cringy 4 years ago?
CleverCrumbish: I was massively disappointed to discover that a game marketed as about "Hackers" was not in fact about "Hacking" but about the politics of greasy Chicago libertarians
Swamplor: Aid And Pierce was a 3rd level Warlord Daily attack
chickenace11: It's a signal boost
ButterBall000: Aiden reminds me a lot of Zachery Quinto
orellien2773: @AmoriLinguae Yes, yes it was.
ContingentCat: or something about the illusion of danger

TriggerHappy2Pi: I've never seen more than the first half hour of this game, but how do they set Adain up as a good guy after this?
PenultiN00b: Guy with a Cell Phone Man!?
Aenir798: What a folk hero!
mtvcdm: Well now they KNOW it's you.
CantWearHats: and so all of hacking was ruined forever
shurtal: Some people call him
Jorge4hg: and all made sense.. kinda well not but
TehAmelie: Guy with a Cellphone full of Javascripts Man
wildpeaks: inb4 we hear from him again
NexusVoxx: javas script
asthanius: "Let's assume our phones are NOT tapped"
tim19862: lol TehAmelie
mara_jane: this game needs more crepes and gingers
mtvcdm: And we never heard from the main character of the game ever again.
CleverCrumbish: It's not, though? Like the sister and nephew are just a proxy wife and son
brainbosh: No, his neice/daughter!
orellien2773: Roll tide!
TehAmelie: a little last minute rewrite
mtvcdm: Yay, NXT Takeover: Chicago!
Nightvalien28: yeah because that is very different
Foxmar320: "Hero"
slazer2au: Well, "Hero"
FlyingUltraCar: About as impressive as the moon being a waxing instead of waning crescent, but ok
Jorge4hg: hero is a strong word
asthanius: A paragon of virtue
korvys: Oh yeah, this thing where you have "choice" to not kill him?
mtvcdm: Welcome to Not Wrigley Field.
Scy_Anide: Wiggly Field
shurtal: Jiggly Puff Field
TrakoZG: Squiggley Field
jammininmypjs: nice that its not the wife and children but i dont think id call it impressive to break away from that trope
mtvcdm: You can tell it's not Wrigley Field because the team's won more than three championships.
shurtal: HEYYOOOO
chickenace11: extra field
orellien2773: Might be "Guaranteed Rate Field". And yes, that's an actual stadium name in Chicago.
Paranundrox: sick burns from mtvcdm
Paranundrox: and almost certainly statistically correct
mtvcdm: The team logo is red, white, blue. It's the Cubs.
CantWearHats: and now, video games!
asthanius: OUR HERO
TriggerHappy2Pi: This shift to gameplay seems kind of jarring
I_Am_Clockwork: wow
Aenir798: HEROISM
Kykiwi: tbh i do like the start of this game
I_Am_Clockwork: lrrWOW
tim19862: sure is scared before seeing a gun
silvalunae: damn this got dark
Jorge4hg: justice
Kykiwi: But it goes down hill fast
CantWearHats: heeeeeere we go
jonasjonIV: ah yes, torture!
Foxmar320: This feels bad
Nightvalien28: yeah we had like an hour ladder climbing
mtvcdm: This is literally the first action of the game.
CantWearHats: it's extra bad because it's a *tutorial*
TehAmelie: you shoot a guy at the end of this game too, and then it's just weird that it's presented as a weighty choice
ContingentCat: you gave a shit about him by now, we don't know this guy
ContingentCat: *by then
mew4ever23: No. In any sort of decent game, this would be a midway killing. Like it was with Kellog in fallout 4
Nightvalien28: now learning, how to kill man, point gun, fire
mtvcdm: This is the first thing you do after you are handed control and you must do it before you do anything else.
girlpainting: so in this game you don´t play a hero, you play as a anty villan
Questhere: mouse 1 to pay respects?
Aarek: hand!
Ckiva: kneecap him?
dammitjoel: IN THE BUTT
Pteraspidomorphi: Can you shoot a leg?
tim19862: lrrAWW

PenultiN00b: so windy
asthanius: His jacket loves to flip out
Kykiwi: whoa his coat
CleverCrumbish: Remember how Spec Ops: The Line, which was considered revolutionary at the time because of the dearth of games in its vein, punished you for interacting with it in the only language it gave youm that of obligate violence?
Nightvalien28: his coat is freaking out
Aenir798: @korvys No, it said "shoot"
wildpeaks: yup, we're definitely the baddies
CleverCrumbish: This is that but worse
I_Am_Clockwork: thereeeeeees a lot to unpack in that scene
korvys: @Aenir798 Oh, still
brainbosh: The game starts by LYING to you
I_Am_Clockwork: and not in a good way
ButterBall000: If he had a baton the whole time why did he use his fists?
orellien2773: Don't worry, he was only struck in the head hard enough to make him unconscious, he's totally fine!
TrakoZG: hax hax hax
splatty1: wait, doesn't this game also end with shooting this guy for some reason?
TehAmelie: it's like the player is put on the wrong side of a fake execution
RealDarkAdamo: id say aiden is more an anti hero then hero
CleverCrumbish: Cause there isn't even a hamfisted point about the military. We're just establishing that Aiden is a bastard
Jorge4hg: ohh yeah audio files
NathanJay_GA: Lets hack the vending machine!
Aenir798: Why did the guy record that...?
silvalunae: wait but hoW
Foxmar320: If only the Drifter in Destiny could do that
mew4ever23: All the free monsters you want
CantWearHats: @Foxmar320 one day he'll get his sodas, one day
aerobeing: Well, he did the deed, so it's kind of a vengeance.
Fableist: i wouldnt really call aiden a hero. he is the protagonist sure, he tries to help sometimes but his main goal is revenge!
I_Am_Clockwork: so don't ask to hard about *how* aiden hacks the way he does. the game just handwaves most of it
until_may: Alpha protocall comes to mind
Foxmar320: CantWearHats he better cause he owes me one
asthanius: It's like Zack Snyder saying Superman is a hero when he commits genocide
orellien2773: The Greater Good.
CleverCrumbish: @I_Am_Clockwork Which sucks because it's BORING
Viewers_Like_You: The greater good
mtvcdm: (The 1999 world Series was *actually* won by the Yankees.)

I_Am_Clockwork: @CleverCrumbish agreed
girlpainting: as i say, he is an anti villan
Jorge4hg: all good
DoctorOfBeard: The Greater Good

TehAmelie: everything is internets and Aiden has a lot of scripts at his command i guess
Aztren: ah, the roman rains problem
aerobeing: How much choice you have to not do awful things, though?
tim19862: that is incongruous
mew4ever23: Looks like a TI84

SnackPak_: drugs?
I_Am_Clockwork: @girlpainting yes I like that read of the character
CantWearHats: yeah like if the game *dealt* with any of those anti-hero themes it might actually be decent, or at least interesting
Laserbeaks_Fury: Someones getting dive mooney
Kykiwi: you stole some ones lunch money
Aztren: reigns*
orellien2773: Well, it is a Chicago baseballs stadium...
EscherichiaCole: No piss coat, game 0/10
until_may: @wildpeaks we dont speak of such things
mtvcdm: Yeah, this seems about the level of responsibility of some pro ballplayers.
aerobeing: I like this guy.
aerobeing: Jordi
TheMagicWalrus: that was 1000% cocaine money
lunarecliptica: his coat seems to be twitching a bit
wildpeaks: ah yes, casual murder
orellien2773: Jordi is just the best!
RealDarkAdamo: its been awhile since i played it but isnt it framed as in you break small laws or skirt the law to stop massive crimes
Scy_Anide: Why couldn't that guy be the protagonist instead?
asthanius: I could see an explanation being: He's only seen as a hero because people don't see his methods. But that's dumb and a stupid excuse made up after-the-fact
CantWearHats: his coat is so flappy
Aarek: wibble coat
tim19862: wobbly coat field
shurtal: Mr. LaForge not himself
RiverBirch: Who let the dogs out
Kykiwi: i like him! but he dosent get any more charater development apart form this
CleverCrumbish: @asthanius It's also, iirc, not borne out in the text
asthanius: Exactly
RiverBirch: Pffffffft
ampharos15: nice shot
quentastic: So we killed everyone before the room who we wanted to scare, and then didn't kill the guyy we wanted to scare?
Foxmar320: Everyone in this game is just bad.
delta__vee: wait... was that a sports analogy without a specific sport
Viewers_Like_You: Ah yes, good ol' good guys doing good stuff
ampharos15: what was that hand gesture lol
aerobeing: Jordi is great.
CantWearHats: ah yes, the [sport] stadium
Nightvalien28: but people will get hurt Kappa
FinalShowFilms: Jordi is probably one of the best characters in the game.
I_Am_Clockwork: so now we are throwing a bunch of gang-vs-cops shootout next to a bunch of civilians
Fableist: the supporting cast for this game are much better than the protag
PatchworkWit: jordi is honest about being a jerk
CleverCrumbish: We just established that Aiden is a bastard, but we need to have him be sympathetic, so let's IMMEDIATELY Russell Brand him
PatchworkWit: and therefore endearing
DirgeNovak: Jordi totally dies, right?
ArgentumFlare: You're like a VERY slow joker
TehAmelie: i think the game tries to do a bunch of fantasy casting, but without making the characters "really" look or sound like the actors
walkwithoutrhythm: Literally just Persona 5
ampharos15: ive never played this game but it looks similar to the division
asthanius: You airdropped Dog.mp3
Alterego2012: Another viceroy? Nute Gunroy???
silvalunae: tbh aiden is more a script kitty than an actual hacker imo
Aenir798: ENHANCE
Jorge4hg: of course
Aarek: can only hack via line of sight
CantWearHats: cool technology!
mtvcdm: What is this, ley lines?
Rhynerd: Imagine if you had that option added onto every NPC. Just distribute dog videos to the world.
aerobeing: Line off sight mac address spoofing?
tim19862: ah visual 'hacking' so dumb
asthanius: Sight-based hacking
mtvcdm: We just have ley line magic.
brainbosh: Yes, Line of sight, cause they all use IR?
ArgentumFlare: It doesn't make sense, but its cute
ContingentCat: because all you have to do is see something to hack it
chesul: yea. that totally works...
CleverCrumbish: @silvalunae Aiden is a fantasy construct of how script kiddies see themselves
Ckiva: who knew hacking was semaphore all along
TehAmelie: hack the planet, one LOS at a time
atlas624: @ampharos15 Makes sense, Ubisoft does share a lot of its assets around its various branches. You can see it most clearly in the fact they all share the same gun models in every game
girlpainting: o.O
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh yeah, and you have Laughing Man blur on you all the time
Foxmar320: Hack to hack to hack to hack to open door
wildpeaks: something something advanced technology and magic
aerobeing: Is it all InfraRed based?
FinalShowFilms: It doesn't make sense mechanically, but I believe the idea is that you have to know it's there to know you can hack into it. That's now how they explain it at all, sure...
silvalunae: @CleverCrumbish -nodnod-
Master_Gunner: As far as video game hacking minigames go, it's not bad. Just super dumb and nonsensical.
walkwithoutrhythm: That's not how emergency doors work tho. That bothers me more than it should
girlpainting: hacking a door, because you have lign of sigh through a bunch of cameras.....SUUURE
aerobeing: McGuyver
Zyme86: crafting LRR
ContingentCat: If they just used a different word instead of "hack" I feel like the willfull suspense of disbelief would work better
Viewers_Like_You: Sorry, but was one of those cameras the "planet" I've heard so much about?
Juliamon: "not how it works IRL" is fine as long as you're consistent about it
aerobeing: Today on Tinker Tailor Solder Fry
escape_artist_404 just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, escape_artist_404! (Today's storm count: 50)
ExhaustedElox just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. ExhaustedElox subscribed for 52 months in a row!
ExhaustedElox: Got a full deck of subs. :) Glad to support LRR all this time.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ExhaustedElox! (Today's storm count: 51)
TehAmelie: the game does love the concept of machines being able to recognize shapes, faces and hackable objects. . .
OriginalGarwulf: Juliemon: That is exactly true. The key to willing suspension of disbelief is consistency. Once you create a rule for your setting, you have to follow it.
asthanius: "Had heart surgery" "Foot fetishist" the most important information
ritchards: Now Batman your way through this!
I_Am_Clockwork: cops work for the man maaaaan
CantWearHats: "badboy" ok sure
OriginalGarwulf: Also, has anybody noticed that this guy is trying to blend in with one of the most obvious custom coats imaginable?
TehAmelie: don't question the personality profile algorithm!
TheMagicWalrus: I mean it is Chicago
atlas624: Man, Ubisoft really got their mileage out of that "cover to cover" system, they've been using it for the last 6/7 years
cyclopsboi: i mean its not really that far off base
Foxmar320: The entire city runs on Windows its horrible
CleverCrumbish: "Cops are not good, but we're not going to make any actual like, coherent statement about that. Because we're a corporation the size of Ubisoft"
walkwithoutrhythm: ex-Military manic depressive describes my last gf. Hope shes doing ok
Mysticman89: kinda reminds me of how hacknet works
p_johnston: if cops were good aiden couldn't kill them and still be good. therefore cops are bad.
atlas624: @OriginalGarwulf I think you mean "iconic"
aerobeing: Matrix prototype.
e_bloc: it's deus ex hackina
ampharos15: lol hack him
darkecologist: are the bears winning?
TheManaLeek: Tactical hacking stance
Paranundrox: not standing suspiciously at all
Robot_Bones: them sombra level hacks where they can't run good no more
OriginalGarwulf: Police: "Hey, that idiot's still wearing the coat! Shoot him!"
Brok3nGol3m: "Ypu
Phosphatide: hooray for internet of things
Brok3nGol3m: "You've got the pride"
TrakoZG: equip blackout, got it.
ButterBall000: What might've helped the "hero of the people" aspect would be if the player could help people through some of the peoples problems that show up in their information.
Nightvalien28: and somehow every bulb exploded
Jorge4hg: for the greater good
ritchards: For the Greater Good!
Martizz1e: this is 1 right?
hoktauri: uh, thats more than a blackout
Aenir798: What a hero!
jonasjonIV: I think this killed people
Kykiwi: for the revenge
korvys: That seems like the sort of thing that would get people killed in a stampede....
I_Am_Clockwork: "Destroyed a couple of arc lights, we may have injured"
NarishmaReborn: people will be hurt and likely die from this
Fableist: this is hot fuzz levels of greater good
Viewers_Like_You: Noted good guy Aiden Watchdogs creating a situation for hundreds of people to get trampled
Asimech: I feel like the sparks near the switches or whatnot are a bit much and unnecessary.
I_Am_Clockwork: "may have injured"
OriginalGarwulf: So...how many people did we just injure or maim?
CleverCrumbish: @Phosphatide Okay that's the one conceit in this game I will defend because the internet of things is just Like That. It's genuinely awful.
wildpeaks: the hero we didn't deserve
I_Am_Clockwork: our hero
mtvcdm: Oh, guaranteed this kills fans.
ContingentCat: remember this is a *good* person
atlas624: And now you've started a stampede/riot at Chicago's biggest stadium on its busiest night. Well done, jackass
jonasjonIV: now, seal the door so noe one can leave!
Brok3nGol3m: no one will need that door in an emergency
DirgeNovak: Watch Dogs, the gane where you play a literal terrorist
Asimech: This should also work as an answer to the "how much of the awful stuff the player does is optional" question. I.e. "Not enough."
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Militant Vegan"
Scy_Anide: Ah but you see, CtOS is the bag guys, as their system can be hacked!
Scy_Anide: bad*
CleverCrumbish: @DirgeNovak All the fun of playing a literal terrorist without any of those pesky coherent ideologies that inform actual terrorism
p_johnston: it's all for the greater good. by which i mean revenge.
TehAmelie: on refleciton i'm not sure how much of what you're seeing is some kind of AR phone camera filter Aiden is looking through or if he's supposed to have his own hacker vision
atlas624: That's the problem though, the game NEVER owns how messed up this entire premise is. If they had it would have at least been interesting, this is just Consequence Free Man becomes a Vigilante
wildpeaks: also interesting how it summarizes people to barely a few words, as if people can't be multiple things
Foxmar320: I hated the police search things. Sometimes it felt like you just couldn't loose them
Camthelion: lord i hated the driving in this game. it handled so awful
mtvcdm: Also, we just murdered that other car.
asthanius: They kinda get into Aiden's horribleness in the sequel, but it's too little too late
TehAmelie: it could be a commentary on algorithms being unable to effectively label people, but we never get to see those labels being wrong
Paranundrox: points for police evasion. Like a good guy!
mtvcdm: Because we're the good guy.
ContingentCat: like all good people do
mew4ever23: Your hero, ladies and gents
Paranundrox: god I missed G streaming Watch Dogs...
Ckiva: it's because everything needs experience points these days
atlas624: I heard the sequel actually approached a lot of the problems the first had, but no one cared
Paranundrox: this takes me back
ContingentCat: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 36:12.
Asimech: Boiling each person down to a single line could work if the line would always reflect the protagonist: If it were how *they* would boil down that person based on the data they hacked.
jonasjonIV: tough car
asthanius: @atlas624 This issue is that Aiden is still the hero in the second one, in spite of never addressing his flaws
Mysticman89: solid suspension
TehAmelie: oh but Aiden doesn't do it, he has profiling algorithms do it for him
mew4ever23: lrrFINE
Viewers_Like_You: That jump? Hacked.
Kykiwi: car made out of rubber
ContingentCat: this is a very good car you found
TrakoZG: this is actually very normal for Chicago. Graham
Scy_Anide: Oh yeah, you're playing with m/kb
mtvcdm: Normal evening out driving.
blip2004: way to keep everything low key
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips
silvalunae: indestructable card
Viewers_Like_You: Fence? Hacked.
silvalunae: ^car
CleverCrumbish: It's more not a Mitsubishi than it isn't anything else
walkwithoutrhythm: This to me sounds like a very good reason not to do long running multi-decade series and come up with new ips every once in a while
atlas624: @Asimech Hell if you were clever you could even make that a gameplay thing, set your scanner to pick up and interpret different keywords for different hacks. But clever and ubisoft don't play well
Fableist: it does have a steal mechanic, you can hide in the car!
brainbosh: Kinda has a stealht when you hide in the car.
Foxmar320: On PS4 at least I felt like the driving controls were a bit stiff
NathanJay_GA: There is a mechanic to "hide" from police, so yes, you can do stealth in a car
ritchards: now zipline across teh city!~
Swamplor: Is this the game that features the ability to fling yourself out of a moving vehicle with a single button press?
Paranundrox: destroy infrastrucure! Like a reasonable peson!
wildpeaks: that man ? ded
Paranundrox: *person
Asimech: @atlas624 True.
DirgeNovak: you can hide in your car
TheAinMAP: Oh dear.
Camthelion: e or f?
Nightvalien28: driving casually
Skudd: Watch_Dogs had a lot of good ideas, but I don't feel like they really nailed most of them until the second game.
Brok3nGol3m: katesRip
CantWearHats: in WD2 I would aways get rammed by police cars out of nowhere
Jorge4hg: for the greater good?
CleverCrumbish: @Swamplor That's most GTAlikes
Fableist: you can do that too. if you drive more carefully while police are looking it takes longer for them to realise your the one they are after
aerobeing: At least he turns off the car unlike in GTA.
atlas624: @walkwithoutrhythm Sadly the raw maths says otherwise. Odyssey was a damn good game that got a lot of praise, Watch Dogs was trying to do something new and it flopped big time
ContingentCat: good luck with rent guy
TehAmelie: i'd make a reference to civilian casualties but it'd be unfair to imply Aiden isn't a civilian
Asimech: Because protag.
Jorge4hg: because the good people need funds
TriggerHappy2Pi: Do the cops come for you if you start murdering people?
Viewers_Like_You: Hey, money is the root all evil, so really, you're doing him a favour
Swamplor: @CleverCrumbish Fair enough. I don't really play any. There was one, though, where Wiggins managed to do it a bunch of times in a row on stream.
jammininmypjs: age 22 $1700
Mister_BlueSky: Perhaps only if it's insured or something?
CleverCrumbish: Is the implication that you don't take ALL of their money, because Aiden is Not Satan and therefore deserving of praise?
wildpeaks: it's randomized basically
jammininmypjs: that sounds nice
Nightvalien28: HERO
aerobeing: You can always consider their story and not take their money, though.
Foxmar320: We stole her music lol
ButterBall000: What would be nice is if you could stealthily give that hacked money to people that need it.
Scy_Anide: Music industry gonna come after you now
aerobeing: You wouldn't download a song?!
mew4ever23: Yeah, sometimes its money, sometimes you pirate their music
Paranundrox: oh no, you fucked up now
Paranundrox: RIAA's after Aiden this time
Rhynerd: “Maybe I’ll get a copy of her itunes.”
asthanius: Oh yes the creepy nanny cam
korvys: Haha! The greatest crime of all, MUSIC PIRACY!
atlas624: We....we used her to download a song? "You wouldn't pirate a person" "F--- YOU I WOULD IF I COULD!"
ritchards: sit down, man!
shurtal: Spying on the family, YEAH
NathanJay_GA: aaaand spying on our sister
underhill33: Oh right he spies on his family
TehAmelie: it's P2P stealing
aerobeing: Paranundrox, he's fucked.
keltonhicks: just got done watching the twitch rivals stream all day. glad you guys are on!
cyclopsboi: so you are stealing money from the rich stock broker, its kinda like really bad occupy politics
CantWearHats: o u r h e r o
wildpeaks: yuup
ContingentCat: EWWWW
I_Am_Clockwork: oh yeah this trope
Foxmar320: Not creepy at all
Aenir798: H E R O
TriggerHappy2Pi: thats creepy
CleverCrumbish: Literally who feels this way about their uncle, this is SO OBVIOUSLY a transplanted wife/son plot
SnivianMoon: Y I K E S
asthanius: Serial killer board
Master_Gunner: So that's a thing.
frozenphoenix7: Our HERO
Jorge4hg: this looks an awful like an ex
ArkhamArchivist: Pepe Silvia?
TrakoZG: weeelllllllp
Mysticman89: that could have undesirable consequences.
TehAmelie: he downloaded that song right off her library. she doesn't have it anymore.
Duwani1: So he is that one character from Punisher?
TastyArsenic: goood guy
silvalunae: i can feel the undertones of that's supposed to be his wife not sister
Zebunisher: tottaly not a creep,nope!
NathanJay_GA: Alexa! Buy more red yarn!
girlpainting: well, this hacking persons mechanic alone is a reason for me NOT to support this game. i think i am to lawefull good for this kind of games
korvys: H E R O I C
brainbosh: I mean, EVERYONE in this city has cameras now.
CantWearHats: he just really hates post-it notes
orellien2773: "And now my hand's broken!"
atlas624: Sad thing is, not even the most messed up thing to happen with camera's in peoples houses in this game - pretty sure Aiden watches a woman die at one point and does NOTHING about it
CleverCrumbish: Nice passive voice bro
Asimech: Maybe this is why they decided switch from ex to sister? This would be *even creepier* if she were his ex.
Fumakotaro_ just subscribed with a Tier 2 sub. Fumakotaro_ subscribed for 12 months in a row!
Fumakotaro_: 1 year hype!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Fumakotaro_! (Today's storm count: 52)
aerobeing: atlas624, Clara? Or someone else?
ContingentCat: yeah "badboy17" someone you should trust an listen to
silvalunae: please let badboy be like a 13yo girl
Statist42: so not even the "not player controlled" parts are sure if aiden is a good guy or a dick
MacSquizzy: @LoadingReadyRun Hey you guys don't happen to be part of this EPic Games Creator thing do you?
keltonhicks: bad boys II
Ckiva: bad boy is actually the titular 'watch dog' and is a very good boye indeed
I_Am_Clockwork: is there a "correct" build?
TriggerHappy2Pi: Badboy is definitely a hardcore brony
ContingentCat: @silvalunae or like a 90 year old british lady
TastyArsenic: is badboy his sister? that would be great
brainbosh: Just once I want to meet the mysterious figure with the modulated voice and it's actually just how they sound in RL
Robot_Bones: badman is either the nephew or Will Smith
I_Am_Clockwork: these sorts of game often do, even if they tell you they don't
silvalunae: @ContingentCat YES PERFECT
TehAmelie: you can level up your crafting skills? better not let Alex see this
atlas624: @aerobeing Just some random old lady IIRC, I remember it from ChipCheezum's LP of this a while back so memory is a little foggy
shurtal: Gotta min/max a quaility build
CleverCrumbish: @Ckiva It was Silent Hill 2 the whole time!
CantWearHats: Badboy is the Shiba Inu from the true ending of Silent Hill 2
DirgeNovak: spoiler: Badboy is a 25 year old Quebec woman
aerobeing: I want a prequel with Badboy. Badboy lives!
Theycallmejokke: Twitter promised me planets would be hacked, I'm here for the planet hacking
TrakoZG: GTA unlocked
MacSquizzy: This skill tree is ugly as heck
andrew: Dear Doctors Cameron and Graham, have you played Watch_Dogs 2?
keltonhicks: bad boys II for ps2 greatest software ever lrr
silvalunae: @CantWearHats \o/
asthanius: Clara is SO OBVIOUSLY just the embodiment of one of the artist's fetishes
asthanius: It sucks
p_johnston: is it worse if they writers know aiden is a horrible person and are afraid to acknowledge it or if they genuinely think they wrote a good guy?
TriggerHappy2Pi: Is this going to only do this today or will you continue it in subsequent weeks
CantWearHats: mission complete!
DiscordianTokkan: Are Jammy Commers like Jammy Dodgers?
Brok3nGol3m: you knocked it outa the park!
CantWearHats: mmm, unstable chemicals
KharadBanar: Comm on and Jam
VoidByAnyOtherName: where're the clockwork doggos andyRage
CaptainSpam: Now I kinda want to see a cell phone punk game that starts out like this, but quickly becomes absurd with "hacking" powers. Like, being able to just start casting fireballs out of your phone.
arcaneemperor: HI Graham! unfortunately also, Bye Graham! :D
Foxmar320: Hack the bed to access
Mister_BlueSky: You're listening to the boy from the big bad city, this is jam comms.
EscherichiaCole: Did you just hack your own computer?
atlas624: @asthanius Exactly, we all know if you build a character out of your fetishes you go all in. Make her a redhead with improbable boobs and amazing muscles, broadcast your kink so that none can shame your character design!
Viewers_Like_You: Ah yes, my favourite pastime, hacking my own diary
Aenir798: Why are people recording all these audio diaries?!
Jorge4hg: and not a single dog has been watched
CleverCrumbish: @p_johnston I think the worst notion is if they know Aiden is a bastard but think they wrote a narrative that politically justifies him being centred as the good guy nonetheless
Fableist: in the sequel you can really fuck with people. you can change their ctos profile to make them criminals and have the police come arrest them or make them wanted gang members and have another gang come and kill them. its kinda fucked up!
brainbosh: Why doe he keep a COMPUTERIZED diary!?!
mew4ever23: Question - this is our computer, yes? Why are we hacking in, surely we already have access on our phone
TrakoZG: I like how your OWN equipment has vulnerabilities
TehAmelie: i want a game where you do "hacking" with an axe and "jamming" with fruit preserves
Brok3nGol3m: @atlas624 worked for Game of Thrones
wildpeaks: let's hack sleep
Theycallmejokke: I've really missed Pierce's icon cap
TriggerHappy2Pi: Whats that reference?
mtvcdm: Hack our own alarm clock.
aerobeing: "And tonight on the stream we hack this big evil corporation!"
I_Am_Clockwork: keeping records is how they got both Nixon and Capone
TurboEmily: Encryption is a thing
Viewers_Like_You: A full night's sleep: LIFE-hack
Asimech: I am up at 4 am right now.
wildpeaks: it's literally 4 am for me.. :D
ButterBall000: If I did have to do that on a computer, it would have no network capabilities.
Aztren: i... go to sleep at 4am
VoidByAnyOtherName: if he did keep a diary it'd be part of a trap
CantWearHats: Aiden Pierce is physically welded to his coat
p_johnston: @clevercrumbish yeah your right. that truly is the darkest timeline.
aerobeing: TurboEmily, but why would you record a thing like what we just heard? In case of amnesia?
ContingentCat: I've gone to bed at 4am for a while
andrew: fuck Aiden Pierce, gimme Marcussss :P
ExhaustedElox: No, you were taking them camping
atlas624: Man, are we EVER going to get a game on any budget that actually delivers on bed physics? Every one just sleeps on top of the covers even in 2018
orellien2773: Also, the compression algorithm on Aiden's dream is just awful.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I just got here.. is the Video supposed to look like that?
TehAmelie: is Aiden's memory corrupted?
Mister_BlueSky: Yes.
Foxmar320: Hey andrew
BusTed: onoes
RedRaptor just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. RedRaptor subscribed for 27 months in a row!
RedRaptor: I don't get this game. I haven't seen a dog this entire time!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, RedRaptor! (Today's storm count: 53)
shurtal: i wanna help marcus find that dudes robot again....
Scy_Anide: Why did he turn as hard as he could when they shot the tire?
aerobeing: Or to set up for "It was all Jordi, it wasn't me"
Armstrong11139: "AT AGE 6" in case you can't do math
CaptainSpam: So... bad keyframe data in the video stream means "l33t hacker". I guess?
korvys: I was about ot type that
brainbosh: AGE 6 GET IT?
Theycallmejokke: But math is hard
Jorge4hg: important
TurboEmily: @aerobeing perhaps to help him process stuff? Sometimes you just gotta get stuff outta your head before you can do something else
TastyArsenic: yeah it is shockingly obvious it was supposed to be his wife and kids
CleverCrumbish: Luv 2 sleep stiff as a board on top of my bedclothes in my dirty Chicago libertarian gear
VoidByAnyOtherName: "we have calculators now, grandpa"
BusTed: Not as iconic as his hat.
asthanius: Aiden can't hack a shower, so it's not worth it
Foxmar320: I hope we can get the yellow coat again
keltonhicks: hey graham, can you get alex to play bad boys 2 for ps2 on watch+play? it is a classic piece of software
CantWearHats: I fully believe Aiden showers in his coat
TehAmelie: someone said he was welded to the coat but i think it's more like he's wedded to it
ContingentCat: @atlas624 and fully clothed, even his shoes ew
p_johnston: and then you used your particular set of skills to track them down and save your daughter!.... wait wrong one.
korvys: Can't take off the coat, it has the logo in the seams
gizmofreak1: @LoadingReadyRun so basically he's the digital punisher
I_Am_Clockwork: "distractions" here being spying on people
shurtal: "I put on my iconic coat and hacker's hat."
Paranundrox: I love how random the information is
electroswagnetism: more like post-dramatic stress disorder
mtvcdm: "Basketball season PASS"? They're called season *tickets*.
Brok3nGol3m: she doesn't need food this month
aerobeing: You can just not hack them, though.
TrakoZG: hack the stairs
KV1NN4: So.. remind me... once you look at the info.. you HAVE to steal money?
aerobeing: It's what I did with my playthrough.
KharadBanar: @mtvcdm not in Ubisoft Dystopia
Rhynerd: @kv1nn4 nope
I_Am_Clockwork: like setting asside the actual money theft, which is bad enough, breaching aaaaaallll these people's privacy is heanously evil
aerobeing: KV1NN4, no, you can just not hack them.
CantWearHats: stairs? pfft, REAL hackers use a Scissor Lift
aerobeing: KV1NN4, after you see the info.
Viewers_Like_You: To be fair, this takes place in the far-off future year of "2013", so money is surely worth far more or less than in our boring present
wildpeaks: he hacked gravity
TurboEmily: Frequently purchases condoms? Did that game just try to shame someone for safe sex?!
KV1NN4: @Rhynerd Oh good! I'm glad you can choose not to steal
splatty1: I'm pretty sure you can find homeless people that make over 80,000$ a year
brainbosh: Why does a 20 year old need dialysis?
korvys: @CantWearHats Scissor lifts are for hacking to drop on people for murder, not transportation
tim19862: who is he, the police Kappa
azureHaights: Why does this streetwalker have a sword? Why does this squirrel have a system key?
Foxmar320: Why you always crimin
Jorge4hg: A good person obviosly
ExhaustedElox: Let's do some crimes!
blip2004: Blitz?
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: do crimes!
mtvcdm: SIR ARE YOU DOING CRIMES TODAY
TehAmelie: let's Minority Report this b-word
electroswagnetism: CRIMES
Fruan: You have to tell me if you're crimes.
CantWearHats: @korvys my playthrough of Watch_Dogs 2 disagrees :P
CleverCrumbish: So, can we talk about how despite all the various ages listed on people's personal details, every mug shot looks like somebody inflated a baby? Nobody in these images resembles a human.
Scar_Red_Tiger: Doing Crimes again Johnny?
Rhynerd: A friend of her is about to crimes?
Jorge4hg: are you a crime?
lunarecliptica: sir this is a crime-free zone
ReverseCreations: @brainbosh it happens, i'm 29 and on Dialysis <_<
mew4ever23: Guilty of crimes
TurboEmily: So
Nightvalien28: reinassance wig society?
KV1NN4: @aerobeing ...I don't understand what yu mean. So hacking means you WILL steal then?
wildpeaks: let's investigate crime, in a "borrowed" car
TurboEmily: You are discount batman?
ritchards: why you always criming?
cyclopsboi: investigate the crime, by stealing a car
Aarek: how about the crime of car theft?
Armstrong11139: This is what Minority Report was about right?
TastyArsenic: this game is... wow, this is some police state bs huh
aesir_blade: Are we Minority Report now?
I_Am_Clockwork: gah
Ckiva: relieving trauma with invasive vigilantism!
Jorge4hg: a car for justice
Viewers_Like_You: Ah yes, my favourite band, Potential Crime Area
DoctorOfBeard: first step to fight crime: steal a car
TriggerHappy2Pi: I find it hard to believe that no one writing this considered on wrong everything that aiden does is
brainbosh: @ReverseCreations Ooof, sorry. :(
Rhynerd: @aesir_blade we Minority Report now.
Paranundrox: steal a car, like a hero!
Pteraspidomorphi: I'm sure he punches himself in the face every day, DoctorOfBeard
asthanius: Aiden is a dick
aerobeing: KV1NN4, no. You just look at them. Then if you don't press the trigger button to hack them (Q), then you don't hack them.
ContingentCat: better costume?
Nightvalien28: batman has more money
TriggerHappy2Pi: This guy spies on people
aerobeing: KV1NN4, so you can hack them only when you want to do it.
Brok3nGol3m: batman is self-funded
brainbosh: What show was it that did this much better? Person of Interest?
I_Am_Clockwork: also batman doesn't steal from the poor, generally
Ckiva: batman has a working relationship with law enforcement?
CantWearHats: wasn't that the end of Dark Knight Rises
azureHaights: @ContingentCat Certainly more iconic
aquinas_0: this is more or less morally bankrupt than the division?
CleverCrumbish: No Graham, obviously. He can do that from home.
TehAmelie: predictive crime fighter, Aiden "Guy with a Cellphone" Pierce
BusTed: Yes, brainbosh
hoktauri: batman can be a dick, Aiden is a DICK
KV1NN4: @aerobeing Oh! Okay. Whew.
NathanJay_GA: Well, there were those times in The Dark Knight
RealDarkAdamo: he hacked everyones phone to find the joker once
p_johnston: batman doesn't rob people.
Jorge4hg: Stalkman
TriggerHappy2Pi: He probably also posts on 4chan about how everyone should have guaranteed privacy
BusTed: I'm actually watching it through for the first time.
Fableist: ah the stupid concept that became the second marvel civil war!
korvys: Except that one time
wildpeaks: also Batman doesn't fight crime for a reward
asthanius: 1) Aiden sucks. 2) Aiden spies on his sister. 3) Aiden has no morals outside of "you hurt me now I hurt you". 4) Aiden really sucks
Sir_Rebral_Paulsy: Use the sentient CTOS to detect crime
jonasjonIV: not killing is optional. becuase all crime deserves death!
p_johnston: batman doesn't kill people.
splatty1: safety of the victim in no way maters amusingly enough
Rhynerd: Look at that coat go.
Saintnex: I mean batman jumps on roofs looking for someone to beat up?
TheAinMAP: "Person of Interest" this is not.
aerobeing: TriggerHappy2Pi, I mean he knows well they don't. So that would make sense.
TrakoZG: potential crime zone = where Gregg lives
Jorge4hg: Did somebody say crime?
shurtal: Feel in my crime feeling bones
Ckiva: potential victim, who, you?
Jorge4hg: crime, crime never changes
Rockario: I ddon't suppose any of these potential crimes have a chance of not happening without our intervention?
tim19862: wobble wobble coat, buttery buscuit base lrrBEEJ
Armstrong11139: So...given how games work, is there a subtle implication here that only in us observing a potential crime does it become an actual crime?
Brok3nGol3m: and she calmly walks away
orellien2773: Tab
OriginalGarwulf: Anybody get the feeling that whoever made this watched way too much Person of Interest (and missed the point)?
orellien2773: I think
Viewers_Like_You: That guy you're tailing is a real holster-button
Bobtheninjagoldfish: is it wrong that when he said "This guy is close I can feel it!" I said "Yes, YOU ARE THAT GUY"
Foxmar320: Yeah people freak out if you have a gun out. Go figure huh
asthanius: Deaf in one ear...after that explosion
Theycallmejokke: Such heroics
hoktauri: that's some staimina
Laserbeaks_Fury: They're good Watch_Dogs, Brent
aerobeing: Viewers_Like_You, hehhe
ritchards: is he deaf in one ear because of the expliosion we did?
Brok3nGol3m: and now he's deaf
jonasjonIV: leave him in the street!
TheManaLeek: Yeah, dead is neutralized, you got that right
asthanius: REP UP
CleverCrumbish: Aiden Pearce: Very slightly the world's fastest man

Aenir798: So do we just leave him in the street
hoktauri: and you just leave him in the road
mtvcdm: Just leave him i9n the road.
xantos69: You say unharmed.....
DoctorOfBeard: and no one will ever know it was you
e_bloc: I am the law!
EscherichiaCole: Fun fact: he was not deaf in one ear this morning
ContingentCat: good thing nobody saw you here in the midle of the street
Jorge4hg: Justice was served
EscherichiaCole: He is now
corpocracy: #Justice
Ckiva: was he deaf in one ear before or after that takedown?
electroswagnetism: you're just vigilante boot on the neck of the underclasses is all
Pteraspidomorphi: That bastard!
TrakoZG: criminal left in the street, call Streets & San for cleanup
brainbosh: Man punched, problem solved.
aerobeing: That's just his TV tax.
TheManaLeek: That'll show him, watching Bake Off and having money
Pteraspidomorphi: I bet he likes the 10th doctor!
cyclopsboi: I went ahead and put this guy in a vegetative state, "neutralized"
I_Am_Clockwork: like we don't have any contet for *why* that happened either. by our own logic, maybe the guy we just beat was on his OWN vigilatism quest. :p
andrew: i almost forgot how _joyless_ the first game is compared to the second one
TurboEmily: Everyone appears poor in this game .__.
Paranundrox: Say it with me! Ludo. Narrative. Dissonance!
FlyingUltraCar: Mission accomplished
hoktauri: it's been less than an hour and seriously, fuck this guy.
mew4ever23: I was just about to say "For now. He's in the middle of the road."
Saintnex: yea the stealing of other peoples money is the weirdest part
blip2004: the party is almost over at 7 am?
asthanius: Also: Why does your nephew like you so much? You're not even a cool uncle
CleverCrumbish: Could anything she says sound less sincere
Rhynerd: Took $140 from a fire fighter
Fableist: like... you dont have to take their money! it is a choice! its not like there is that much to buy anyway!
wildpeaks: phone while driving
Mister_BlueSky: Yeah, WD2 delivers on the promise this game made a lot more.
CantWearHats: @wildpeaks it's ok he hacked the car
ContingentCat: yeah that sounds way more like shitty ad than sibling
KharadBanar: I kind of like the person descriptions to be honest. Much easier to remember during distracted gameplay than a name
ContingentCat: *dad
Viewers_Like_You: He should get a custom license plate reading "ludonarrative dissonance"
NathanJay_GA: *steals car* "I hate stealing cars"
wildpeaks: at least gta doesn't pretend to be a good guy
p_johnston: this game could be good. like if your niece died 1/3 of the way through because of you and it was a storyyl of aiden becoming a better person.
Asimech: Obviously Aiden thinks cars should be owned for life, but you're allowed to "borrow" anyone's car.
ButterBall000: All 3 GTAs?
Fableist: this is not trying to be parody like gta is this is played straight
quentastic: I kinda like the implication that you will likely hack people based on your prejudices. There's something interesting in that.
emrafool: yes, hi. i would like to watch dogs.
Ckiva: all 3 leads in gta5 @ButterBall000
Saintnex: I mean every GTA has a criminal protagonist if I remember correctly
TrakoZG: GREGG
Viewers_Like_You: Aiden "The Fox" Watchdogs
korvys: The logo is sort of... fox-like
splatty1: Crimes?
KharadBanar: Watch Fox
CantWearHats: ohhh, THAT'S why you can buy a fox sweater in the sequel
TrakoZG: Aiden GREGGORY CRIME TIMES Pearce
Foxmar320: Perfectly normal
Fableist: ubisoft really fucked with the game after they got it
Rockario: So, GTA was mechanically designed with the character being a criminal in mind. But then it became the default mode for open-world city gameplay.
emrafool: ah, the old time tradition of urinal pushing
aerobeing: Fableist, it wasn't ubisoft at first?
TriggerHappy2Pi: Do the cops if you just start beating people up?
Viewers_Like_You: Meanwhile, GTA IV has Nico going "I sure hope I can start a new, crime-free life" while running over pedestrians
CleverCrumbish: @Rockario It makes L.A. Noire, for all its faults, a little refreshing
DirgeNovak: yes
I_Am_Clockwork: note he frames this visit in terms of HIS readyness, not thiers
Oatway_: oh original watch dogs
cyclopsboi: so what do you think the original game was supposed to be?
aerobeing: Rockario, I think the original concept for GTA 1 was not that, though.
Oatway_: neat
Jorge4hg: lots of camera angles aiden
asthanius: "God, I'm deep."
Nightvalien28: aiden, consider therapy
I_Am_Clockwork: he is very inward and selfish in his focus
Foxmar320: Nice park job
TrakoZG: I like how they get the Sears Tower wrong. You can see it from most parts of the city but it's not always so prominent

Armstrong11139: It's his character, he's the Trash Man
Oatway_: Reach
Vahden: Is the game always set in fall/winter?
KharadBanar: Was Happy Birthday in the public domain yet when this game was released? And if not, did they bother to license it?
TheAinMAP: Oh you're that uncle.
Ckiva: lmao Armstrong11139
Sir_Rebral_Paulsy: uncle aiden hacked his way through the garbage out front
slazer2au: Dr Graham, you forgot to press apply when setting the radio to off in the menu.
emrafool: mom looks about 19
Oatway_: weird that the script changed 9 and "nine" a few times
CleverCrumbish: Ah yes, human interactions, that humans have, we know these
TriggerHappy2Pi: Graham, asking the real questions
TehAmelie: The Wolf of Wall Street has a more likable MC and he's even clearly portrayed as a villain. . .
DiscordianTokkan: Her hair is unsettling. It's like a fox tail
brainbosh: Tickles are measured in Tickle Units
TrakoZG: Unvle Aiden hacked you this amazon gift card
I_Am_Clockwork: like why are we late
DiscordianTokkan: That randomly sneaks onto her shoulder
chickenace11: one movement of the fingers up and down
wildpeaks: why do games and movies always pretend tickles make people laugh anyway ?
I_Am_Clockwork: what reason does he have to show up late instead of early
Aenir798: I like how Aidan shows up to his nephew's birthday party in his crimefighting getup.
DirgeNovak: Jackson is so excited to see Uncle Aiden
Foxmar320: "when was the last time you showered" his sister says
Armstrong11139: I'm sorry, but I had to KO that guy in the middle of the street and then steal $170 from a firefighter
TastyArsenic: how is any of this better if she's his sister? this is probably worse than ex-wife!
TheAinMAP: Did the kid have a fox on his shirt?
Pteraspidomorphi: I think that's part of his skin, Aenir798
mew4ever23: What did you get for your birthday? I got OLDER
brainbosh: @wildpeaks They do, but it can vary WIDELY from person to person.
phorrestgaze: does he have a layer under the sweater?
asthanius: He got a funko pop
ritchards: so he's wearing a shirt AND a jumper AND a jacket?
Fableist: BUY BEEJ!
aerobeing: mew4ever23, that's what I get for my birthday every year.
Scy_Anide: Is his name plural?
Vahden: His super power is infinite shirts.
korvys: Hackers are like Ogres, they have layers.
NathanJay_GA: "pre-owned"
emrafool: oh he's a "where's my hug?" guy
Jorge4hg: brand new
A_Dub888: I has some...... scuff marks on it
TrakoZG: ignore the trash, your car is outside, if you don't like that, I can get you a charger
shurtal: Just what every 10 year old wants: A count of Accessory to Grand Theft Auto
Foxmar320: Someones gotta play healer might as well be that kid
Awexdio: I hacked all your neighbors bank accounts to get you a present. Sorry about the property value loss
aerobeing: "--I'm not 16 yet. -- Well, your government profile says you are."
Nightvalien28: your nephew is a hanzo main
DirtCadaver: *SMASH* DPS for LIFE
Fableist: its only slightly dented with the imprint of a wheelie bin
ButterBall000: He didn't say a word to his uncle.
mew4ever23: Real men play with tanks
DirgeNovak: Early PS4 means at least five layers of clothing
Jorge4hg: only dps
I_Am_Clockwork: He is lying to her through his teath "to protect them"
Oatway_: weird attempt at the slider there
Ckiva: I sure relate to these characters already
Paranundrox: "things are different. I've only stolen $300 and two cars today!"
Rhynerd: “I’m sorry to say this, but your son plays healer.”
frozenphoenix7: I'm not gonna remove the cameras from your house
mtvcdm: Late September in Chicago, so.
cyclopsboi: did the PTSD just make him exceptionally cold? he is wearing an awful lot of layers for autumn
NathanJay_GA: Eh, I still think Jak1 was better than Jak 2
ritchards: literally, I'm gonna stalk you and have cams in your house
TehAmelie: real men play with SPIDER tanks. will we have time to do that by the way?
TheAinMAP: I get it.
OriginalGarwulf: Different from what?
Pteraspidomorphi: orellien2773: He's been running around since yesterday and did not shower or change
Jorge4hg: creppy
Silver__Knight_: orellien2773 aesthetic or death
CantWearHats: OH, LIKE THE BOOK
aerobeing: "Big Brother"
TastyArsenic: OH BOY this is real a real weird sibling relationship. it's like that folgers commercial
TrakoZG: orellien2773 dpending on the day in CHicago, that is either too much or too little
Furvias: That coat may be iconic, but it looks stupid
brainbosh: SYMBOLISM?
ButterBall000: Big Brother is watching.
mtvcdm: Chicago can get pretty chilly.
skrt_01: We don't talk about jack 3
asthanius: Always the Orwell, huh?
FinalShowFilms: iTs a JoAk bEcAuSe hE Is a HaCkEr
CleverCrumbish: My headcanon for this game is that Aiden has used his magic Hack Phone to hack these people's brains to make them believe he's part of their family, and that's why they're all going along with that assumption but not knowing how to interact like humans
Rhynerd: I hope we have time to play Spider Tank.
azureHaights: Soubrette?
SnivianMoon: Aiden, did you gargle with broken glass and gravel? Do you need a lozenge?
Ckiva: can you unlock the throat sweet upgrade?
Oatway_: huge house
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: oh god, that Folgers commercial. "This year, you're my present"
wildpeaks: the hat has more personality than our character, maybe that's why it's iconic :D
mew4ever23: Oh come on, man, put your phone away
TurboEmily: There is a defcon talk by Deviant Ollam that covers hacking and bypassing keypads like the kind used at Gated communities. It's surprisingly easy
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh jeeze, I bet that one reference is the *entire* reason they changed them from a couple to siblings
azureHaights: Quit looking at your damn cell phone, Aiden
Viewers_Like_You: Hack! Drain her account! Be a good guy!
Foxmar320: Aiden get off the phone
I_Am_Clockwork: stealing YOUR SISTER's MEDS?!?!?!
Nightvalien28: drugs
TrakoZG: this is a mansion
EscherichiaCole: She owns this house and makes 36K a year. That seems right
TheManaLeek: Pills here
Paranundrox: you just stole your sister's meds. Like a reasonable human
Robot_Bones: pylls here
mew4ever23: You
emrafool: lemme just take a quick dump while you keep talking
TrakoZG: houses in chicago are tiny compared to this palace
I_Am_Clockwork: HER PTSD MEDS!?

wildpeaks: watching his phone instead of the person he's talking with
I_Am_Clockwork rages
CantWearHats: "meds?" "no thank you I had a big lunch"
brainbosh: Aiden, close the door please?
CanvasWolfDoll: i love whole grain brand cereal!
TastyArsenic: aiden pearce is not a good man
Scy_Anide: What time of year is this? The doors are open, there's a ceiling fan on, and Aiden has like 5 layers of clothing on.
asthanius: CAN'T HACK HER PHONE
mew4ever23: you're rambling, i'm just digging through your home with my phone out...
asthanius: For no reason
TehAmelie: ooh, can you profile yourself in the mirror?
mtvcdm: No, he must continually hack 24 hours a day or else the bus will explode.
MousseFilledCat: So, just saying, this house is far too nice for her yearly income
TrakoZG: I had an apartment smaller than that kitchen
Pal_Friendpatine: If videogames have taught me one thing it is to visit other peoples’ home and loot items from there that might benefit me
asthanius: You can listen to other phone convos, but not this one
TehAmelie: cause it'd be hilarious whether you can or not
Robot_Bones: millennials always on their phones am I rite lrrBEEJ
emrafool: hold on, just checking the tndr chicks in this area. swiiiiipin riiiiight
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: evening gents what have the dogs been up to?
Furvias: there is glass in that door
Rockario: I like the idea that Aiden hacked her phone and then it just plays out loud from his phone
Furvias: so the lock isn't really helpful
Paranundrox: Please stop being a criminal, thanks
TehAmelie: assault and invasion of privacy mostly
Fableist: huh that voice sounds familiar? like an old partner I had
brainbosh: Does Aiden have an earpiece? How does he hear all these phone calls and audio logs?
DirgeNovak: This writing is so terrible
Paranundrox: Also, give me back my medss
Foxmar320: I love that kids iPad
Viewers_Like_You: Last time you helped, you drained my bank account!
Paranundrox: I need those
I_Am_Clockwork: "mom and dad are fighting" vibes of this cutscene
mtvcdm: She isn't wrong
e_bloc: kid cares more about fork knife
Jorge4hg: She's right
CantWearHats: ok yeah that is so heavily coded as "mom and dad are fighting"
phorrestgaze: whelp, time to ignore that and probably make things worse
Furvias: Oh look an Off Brand iPad
Rhynerd: She has a point.
TastyArsenic: oh boy this is definitely a brother/sister relationship. no rewrites here
Paranundrox: IMMEDIATELY ignore her request
aquinas_0: is the protagonist of this secretly just schizophrenic?
frozenphoenix7: Aiden. Aiden please. Please stop.
CleverCrumbish: Your scan of your nephew pegged him as 10, so is your sister just wrong about how old her kid is?
wildpeaks: "normal"
mew4ever23: Aaand she does not immediately run up to the door and relock it
Scy_Anide: Stolen car #3
frozenphoenix7: As a brother to two sisters, this ain't normal.
Scy_Anide: this time right outside your sister's house
chickenace11: With some of my siblings yes
Scy_Anide: that won't be suspicious at all
aerobeing: Does the sister drive?
Paranundrox: You just stole your Sister's car, clearly
ritchards: I'm sure Kate hacked Graqham's phone all the time

Rhynerd: Was that your sister’s car?
emrafool: where's my faaaaamily
2rrr_mirror_breaker: well my sister is recovering from addiction and suffers from a personality disorder so your guess is as good as mine
CanvasWolfDoll: as someone with siblings, some are easier to deal with a couple states away.
TehAmelie: cars are just wallpaper to Aiden
Ckiva: it's probably your sister's lmao
e_bloc: someone obviously stole it back
Foxmar320: WOW
TheAinMAP: What are the odds that's the sister's car?
wildpeaks: that red car ? ded
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: unfortunately, in some parts of america, it probably is common
Paranundrox: Jesus Cam
I_Am_Clockwork: this kind of arguing can happen, and as an older sibling In totally understand the "Thou shall not lrrEFF with my younger siblings" reaction
BusTed: seabatYIKES
emrafool: cam no
MadAran87: XD
frozenphoenix7: Tone this down to about 67% and we've got what I would consider normal. But right now? Not normal.
ghost_waz: wow Cameron
NathanJay_GA: oof
DirtCadaver: Diana you are not getting away
e_bloc: lrrWOW
Driosenth: Jesus Cam
circusofkirkus: is he 10?
aerobeing: lol
Aenir798: Dead
Furvias: "Faster, FASTER"
wildpeaks: that other red car ? ded too
Foxmar320: That man should be dead
Oatway_: one determined crank caller
Ckiva: overreacted? yeah me too
TastyArsenic: so presumably this guy didnt know you were following him, so why was he driving on the other side of the road?
wildpeaks: Aiden just really hates red cars I guess
mew4ever23: Yet more people dead
Paranundrox: "please ignore the car crash sounds"
frozenphoenix7: To be fair, I THINK he just shot me?
Kykiwi: Lol
phorrestgaze: pew pew... "no"
MostCallMe__Tim: Imagine you steal a car and something like "Baby Shark" starts playing
jonasjonIV: "hero"
Scar_Red_Tiger: Aiden has definitely not overeacted
gizmofreak1: besides the whole hacking into cell phones, arguments like this happen all the time
MousseFilledCat: My older brother is not protective of me at all. We do enjoy giving each other shit in the nicest way.
chesul: what happens if you just stand outside her house?
Aenir798: I'M GOING INTO A TUNNEL
CanvasWolfDoll: she knows he does these things!?
I_Am_Clockwork: "I'm in a tunnel"
TriggerHappy2Pi: I feel like the thing about this game is that a bunch of major problems with the game makes the normal video game stuff more noticeable
Anaerin: "I'm going through a tunnel..."
emrafool: what was that noise? just the cracks of 3 people's skulls in a car accident dont worry
Aneximarius: "I'm...in a tunnel?"
Driosenth: I'm in an tunnel!
DirtCadaver: fair in a tunnel
korvys: Fuck you, Aiden
Fableist: your not stealing cars. nobody owns cars anymore you just get in and go
Viewers_Like_You: "I'm literally in a tunnel"
CleverCrumbish: Hey Nicole if there's one thing you don't have to worry about, it's your brother being a Hero
Oatway_: what's in his hand
jonasjonIV: chase man into traffic
TehAmelie: telling Aiden to stop being a hero is like telling him to stop showering
Furvias: I'm impressed that there isn't any heavy breathing or wind noise with that running
Foxmar320: and ded
Oatway_: oh a gun
AmoriLinguae: objection you're not being a hero
TehAmelie: okay that was mean
Asimech: I noticed a distinct lack of sarcasm or whatever when she said "hero".
e_bloc: castrate the suspect for answers
mtvcdm: He was coming right for us!
frozenphoenix7: Awww, that guy was just on an interview to get a job to move out of the basement.
MacSquizzy: This conversation is painting your ill-advised attempt at vigilante justice as "wacky antics"
FlyingUltraCar: The music says cool hero
CanvasWolfDoll: the 'suspect' game? we're not batman!
Questhere: and no one was hurt
aerobeing: I mean it is justifiable in this case.
Foxmar320: Free car!
NathanJay_GA: The phone is controllable, though. You can put it away
Paranundrox: HERO
Aenir798: That wasn't even a pre-owned car, that was just a "owned car"
Driosenth: who keeps $114 in a glovebox
Nightvalien28: you hacked that man
Furvias: Remember only Hero's Car Jack
Brok3nGol3m: A true marxist
Pteraspidomorphi: Logic checks out
timiam: UwU a Camgraham stream, glad I clicked over here.
AmoriLinguae: What's the car steal count?
emrafool: badboy?
Paranundrox: @Driosenth well clearly the banks aren't safe :P
wildpeaks: 4 so far
frozenphoenix7: Why can't YOU trace a phone call Aiden? Didn't you JUST do that?
e_bloc: it's not carjacking if you're a hero!
TehAmelie: if the hero does it, it's not a crime
Scy_Anide: Well, 4 this morning
circusofkirkus: All hail comrade Aiden
CleverCrumbish: @Brok3nGol3m Close, but wrong kind of anarchist :/
TheAinMAP: Wait, that fire truck must have passed that burning car.
Ckiva: is the loop a real place?
aerobeing: Well....
aerobeing: There's a thing about this job...
wildpeaks: that's.. not relaxing at all
mew4ever23: Our hero
Oatway_: tales from the loop
aerobeing: That comes up later.
phorrestgaze: "Relax I'll bring lots of guns!"
Aneximarius: the torque on that car is insane
frozenphoenix7: God that would've been a wonderful plot twist. The hacker ally being your sister. Or a very stupid one. Entertaining either way probably.
blast_shark: Was that Dave's spokesman walking across the street?
Pteraspidomorphi: What bothers me most about this game is how poorly secured the city os is
Ckiva: thank you kindly mtvcdm
Fableist: dont you know who i am! im the protagonist! i can park where i want!
mew4ever23: He Protecc
Aneximarius: so THATS what a bitcoin is
ritchards: VR game
wildpeaks: 5
CleverCrumbish: @frozenphoenix7 I'd be into it. Someone Aiden treats as an idiot having one up on him would be nice
Foxmar320: Another free car!
Genderi: It's not available!
CanvasWolfDoll: ah, nice to have a morality scale. those are always executed meaningfully.
aerobeing: Aneximarius, heh
azureHaights: Upgrade your car. You crafted this.
Oatway_: "glovebox looted: ring found"
orellien2773: Okay, so, one thing that bugs me in games sometimes is when they don't think out the acronyms and how poeple would say them. Pronouncing CTOS as "Sea-Tea-Oh-Ess" is... odd, especially since, looking at those letters, I'd expect it to be more "Sea-Toss".
Rhynerd: Stole a wedding ring.
corpocracy: This would be much more compelling if this was just all in his head. Like if the Rep meter was completely fabricated
MacSquizzy: I hate this thing Ubisoft does with their open world games where they include a skill tree, but then lock tiers of upgrades behind story progression
korvys: Not yet
brainbosh: Hack the cannon
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips
jonasjonIV: America!
Brok3nGol3m: you do gun?
Aneximarius: fun fact: there is no waiting period in america to buy a cannon
Paranundrox: To be fair, it's hard to drive with one hand permanently glued to your phone
e_bloc: drunk on power
I_Am_Clockwork: time to participate in illegal gun trade
Viewers_Like_You: "I'm not drunk! I just hacked an entire bottle of gin."
mew4ever23: Wepon
DirgeNovak: Thank god G doesn't drive in real life
ContingentCat: Aiden please be drunk with how pou're driving
aerobeing: orellien2773, IRL they don't always think up the best names for products.
emrafool: me need gun now
Jorge4hg: i need a gun for justice
Armstrong11139: Oh man, if only I could've employed that parking strategy for PAX Unplugged a few weeks ago...
zeraxilim: Cam's expression is priceless
Genderi: 416
ritchards: I'm fairly sure you can play the whole game with baton?
Statist42: "shouldnt have hacked my driving license and actually got some training"
frozenphoenix7: The one Assault Rifle you can afford
Theycallmejokke: Do we get to be the giant robot spider later today
FinalShowFilms: CToS doubled their guards from 14 to 28. I therefore need to double my arsenal from 1 to 2. That is an equivalent power balance.
chickenace11: steal everybody money
Foxmar320: Nope must buy gun
KV1NN4: Ah, COP SHOW, i love that procedreal
Lazarus_18: So, wont by preowned car, but will buy gun...
BlandSpice: I just love that ad for COP SHOW
korvys: Purchase the 416
ithinkmydogisjace: Wait did anyone see that he just raised his hand and drank nothing?
CleverCrumbish: @orellien2773 So this is probably a framing conflict. The writers want the actors to pronounce See Tee Oh Ess to emphasise that OS stands for Operating System, and that therefore it's a unifying computer system. In real life, of course, it's not important to emphasise that so people would say SeeTos
brainbosh: You haven't climbed the tower yet.
Awexdio: You need sub-level access for this section of ctOS
brainbosh: Climb the Ubisoft tower to unlock the region.
Furvias: I like how Threaten is an option in the Shop Menu
ContingentCat: "activist" yeahhhh
frozenphoenix7: Don't mind me, I'm just going to hand this man a pile of cash and he's going to hand me an untraceable assault rifle.
cyclopsboi: "activist hacker"
Genderi: Protector.
orellien2773: Man, the people in Chicago are just so jaded.
CleverCrumbish: dedSec, in the same vein as Aiden himself, are a fantasy construct of how Anonymous see themselves
Fableist: yeah dedsec! the good guys you fuck over who become the protagonists for 2!
TrakoZG: "peacekeepers" = Blackwater
I_Am_Clockwork: ok now we are justifying killing these security goons
Genderi: Wow I love watch and play
DirgeNovak: military mercenaries, as opposed to civilian mercenaries
asthanius: Many =/= all
MostCallMe__Tim: In these games, would we be better off driving in first person? Driving in games like GTA, the control over the car SUCKS a fat one and I remember them having similar issues trying to pilot full sized vehicles remotely in Mythbusters
particle33: Is this console or pc?
Furvias: As opposed to his Criminal Future
wildpeaks: you didn't stop long enough to check they're not dead, at least
Rhynerd: Yet.
Jorge4hg: yet
FinalShowFilms: Nevermind that CToS is providing secure well paying jobs to former felons in an attempt to help resocialize them into society.
Zyme86: How dare that company give ex cons a job
FinalShowFilms: They're crims so bad
cyclopsboi: yup fast five
Fableist: i love the fast movies!
MarsIsDead: Yeah out of choice... you recked that one guy with your car

CanvasWolfDoll: why is... why does he have that?
timiam: That's not how grenades work friendo
corpocracy: A Wireless grenade?
Viewers_Like_You: It's okay, he's not you
azureHaights: Explosives tend to do that, Cam. lrrBEEJ
aerobeing: He'll just respawn.
Jorge4hg: they're bad people cam
Paranundrox: it's okay, because he's been proscribed medical marijuana, so he's clearly a criminal /s
Aneximarius: I am not in the least surprised that pocket frags hurt them
GloriousMost: Look at all these criminals, Medical Weed
Brok3nGol3m: the internet of things should not include grenades...
Fableist: it gets better in the next one! wait you want us to hunt a terrorist! we just steal and drive cars man what the hell!
DoctorOfBeard: wifi grenade

Questhere: why does his grenage have wifi
Laserbeaks_Fury: Of course you can hack grenades, they have a PIN Kappa
gizmofreak1: blow it up you cowards
Issurru: sometimes they throw the grenades away OpieOP
SquareDotCube: The idea of grenades being IoT is very worrying indeed
ContingentCat: it'll hurt him for the rest of his life Cam
ryuhimora: was driving earlier, but now i can mention that its possible to restore the visuals from the E3 demo, and the game runs better with them on because the engine isnt being hobbled
Brok3nGol3m: @DiscordianTokkan his short, short life
aClonedPickle: It won't hurt him for long, but it will hurt him for the rest of his life.
Asimech: @Laserbeaks_Fury Goddammit.
Rhynerd: This is why you gotta get analogue grenades.
CleverCrumbish: No. I 100% believe you. I have SEEN the real internet of things, and I TOTALLY BUY that somebody would connect a grenade to it
aerobeing: WeedenProject, Sleeping Dogs
TriggerHappy2Pi: What is the level at which the city wide OS declares you "addicted to porn"?
TrakoZG: hack the dog?
CanvasWolfDoll: our protagonist feels super judgey.
MrTheWalrus: "This is a very poorly-designed grenade and I'd like to submit a complaint."
Furvias: Really can we talk about "Threaten" being a omni present menu option in a Shop?

Aenir798: All grenades need bluetooth connectivity.

ExhaustedElox: No, you can do this mission without setting foot on the grounds.

brainbosh: Imagining someone bot-hacking internet-enabled greanades across the world simultaneously.
aerobeing: SnivianMoon, lol
DirgeNovak: you need to use the code on a console inside
Master_Gunner: TFW your grenade doesn't work because a bitcoin miner hacked it.
asthanius: "Alexa, play La Bomba"
Rhynerd: Maybe the digital grenade is meant to have IFF systems to affect point of detonation?
mew4ever23: Why would you waste networking components on something designed to explode?
aerobeing: brainbosh, Kingsmen 1.
SquareDotCube: "Yes, I'd like to RMA this grenade?" "Okay, what is the problem with it?" "It exploded."

Issurru: 1984
aerobeing: Well, considering where he is pointing that telescope...
ContingentCat: it's ok?
FinalShowFilms: Is it citizen OS? I thought it was City OS
Anaerin: azureHaights: ct. As in "City"
frozenphoenix7: ctOS is Big Brother.
particle33: How do you make hacking fun in a video game?
azureHaights: oh THEY FWAWKIN
Duwani1: So its the machine from Person of Interest?
CleverCrumbish: Aiden wants to beat up the telescope guy because his invasion of privacy game is filthy casual level compared to Aiden
Pteraspidomorphi: You are being watched. The government has a secret system. A machine.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Vulnerability Detected: Self Conscious About Weight
Pteraspidomorphi: Oh, you beat me to it, Duwani1
TehAmelie: Deus Ex Revolution had fun hacking
Mister_BlueSky: Who spies on the spiesmn's?

TastyArsenic: this is the good guy remember
wildpeaks: yeah, it was a good show
Oatway_: @DirgeNovak yup

slazer2au: DirgeNovak Same
Vanderhof: @DirgeNovak ya
Furvias: " I could take advantage of peoples dirty secrets" ... HERO
BlandSpice: Oh right this game had an invasion mechanic
I_Am_Clockwork: this game, but as a heist game would have been so much better
Bobtheninjagoldfish: who when picking a hacker name thinks "you know what will strike fear into the hearts of my enemies? BADBOY17!!"
SnivianMoon: NO
Jorge4hg: his coat is going places

TrakoZG: lrrGARBO lrrGARBO
Rhynerd: Poops today
brainbosh: "Tested positive for Herpes" Everyone has herpes.
grgriffin3: Wel, she saves money, due to all the shoplifting.
LaconicLad: is this the game that's loosely tied to Assassins' Creed? or is that something else?
ryuhimora: Too bad hacking your way through missions stops working about halfway through
ContingentCat: isn't that redundant
Foxmar320: lol
Pteraspidomorphi: A job and a hobby
Aneximarius: So far i've learned that i'm in the wrong career
jigokuro_temp: Implying there are real psycics?
cheetoJack: only one?
Rockario: Were they *his* nudes though?
Aneximarius: the fraudulate psychic makes like 16k more a year than I do
MarsIsDead: It very much seems like there is a good game in here with a good writer
BlandSpice: @LaconicLad There's an implication that Abstergo exists I think?
particle33: As opposed to non fraudulent psychic
grgriffin3: @LaconicLad it's this one. Far Cry is also tangentially tied in, but mostly due to Easter eggs.
FlyingUltraCar: Posted “nude photo” actually sand dunes
Ckiva: not all psychics are fraudulent
LaconicLad: aha.thanks
wildpeaks: 6
aerobeing: Is that just Renault?
Foxmar320: Best driver? Have you seen are driving?
Ckiva: you can purvey nonsense without being dishonest about it
TehAmelie: i'd like to think in this world there are actual psychics but Aiden's profiling software doesn't believe in them
MarsIsDead: The gameplay looks fun but yeah the justifications with the story already are dumb...
Mr_Dirty: Best driver in the city huh?
Paranundrox: "then he's in luck" *Graham proceeds to drive through every fire hydrant and every other light post* :P
CantWearHats: this gameplay but with better writing is Watch_Dogs 2
Rhynerd: It was a picture of their dog without a collar. The algorithm classified it as a nude photo.
asddsa28: were was the ethics team!

LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:15:23.

Vanderhof: @Rhynerd ohh saucy!
KharadBanar: That assumes there are vision designers
CleverCrumbish: Imagine making a game where your character is nominally a hacktivist living in a 100% surveillance police state and somehow thinking that the best way to justify your actions narratively is to connect opposing characters to criminala activity. That definitely isn't weaksauce and absolutely doesn't make it more complicated and they totally shouldn't just have gone all in on "government bad"
grgriffin3: In AssCreed Origins you can see a video of the head of the Abstergo game-making division getting murdered by this main character.
ContingentCat: yeah it wouldn't be that hard to put a better story behind these mechanics
ExhaustedElox: "Such as seals..."
jonasjonIV: online eco terrorist?
mtvcdm: What is an "online eco-terrorist"?
Laserbeaks_Fury: That alaogy makes no sense
Paranundrox: "trolls online political threads" Is that what I just read?

SnivianMoon: "Modern day canary in the coal mine"... So... They're going to die before everyone else?
TrakoZG: BSOD ATM lol
Viewers_Like_You: Ah yes, the canary in a coal mine, known for giving you black lung to warn you about the dangers of mining
frozenphoenix7: Like, this game would feel so much better if we weren't supposed to pretend that Aiden is a "good guy"
corpocracy: That's a lot to withdraw from an ATM.

Rhynerd: Civilian killed.
CleverCrumbish: @frozenphoenix7 Or that there even are "good guys". Just make him the less bad guy compared to the literal police state. It's not hard.
mew4ever23: Because who plays watch_dogs online

Laserbeaks_Fury: This is the Invader Kirk

Bobtheninjagoldfish: wer ubi afraid to make a game where you are just a scumbag if you want to be
Bobtheninjagoldfish: SPIKE THEM!
DirgeNovak: it was fun at ps4 launch but no one does it now
BrindleBoar: that does seem like a better way than Dark Souls "You are being invaded" What does that mea- "You have died" oh
cheetoJack: and now we kill a man because he tried to get into our phone
asthanius: It says "kill". Our hero. Kills him.
grgriffin3: Kneecapped to death!
Kykiwi: Hero
TriggerHappy2Pi: Do the cops come for you?
Jorge4hg: High score!

Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: killed right in the leg
Scar_Red_Tiger: Problem. Solved.
Inkompetence: Kills someone, immediately pulls out phone.

mikethetike221: sergeHolyMoly
wildpeaks: we went 0 to spec ops in record time
Mysticman89: only 3 or 4, seems fine. most people only kill one or two people a day
frozenphoenix7: Pretty sure this section is mandatory G
TehAmelie: i think we ran someone over like 10 seconds after first getting into a car
RealGamerCow: LA Noire suffered the same fate. By the end you were gunning down literally dozens of people in any given mission
CanvasWolfDoll: 'only' three or four. they... presumably had friends. family. responsibilities. y'jerk.
TrakoZG: games let you evade cops because aotherwise you'd never be able to progress.
p_johnston: every time i see games like this i think of The Writer Will Do Something and just feel sympathy for whoever had to try and make this story.

Mr_Dirty: turn it off and on again?

ContingentCat: @gamewhy this is Talking Simulator where to critically look at games, often old games

Kykiwi: I am stil surprised people are stil laround for pvp

Vahden: Well at least it's annoying as dealing with real IT systems.

raaabr: Indeed
Genderi: Wow I love Black Mirror
Rhynerd: With the tutorial bot.
grgriffin3: I found most of the characters of the sequel unlikeable, but in a more fun way. In a way that added to the charm, if that makes sense.

Xenovita: lrrAWW
mtvcdm: The game is fine in every respect except the story. The story falls down hard.
raaabr: Also, this game has issues with...poor reputation as well. With stuff like the downgraded graphics...
xenuceratops: I just heavily dislike its technobabble to end all technobabble.
korvys: He doesn't act likeable, people just tell you he is.
ContingentCat: and it would be ok to not like him if you didn't have the game insisting he was a hero
grgriffin3: Seriously: This is AssCreed 1 mark 2: A tech demo instead of a fully-fleshed-out game.
I_Am_Clockwork: Unlikable and not in a good way or in a way that makes a meaningful point
abaoa_qu: he is no Adam Jensen
corpocracy: Which is interesting compared to GTA
ReverseCreations: so Aiden is the roman reigns of video game characters?
raaabr: The framing of the game doesn't position him as a bad person either, right?
Feltic: Sleeping Dogs had a decent good driving mechanic
Paranundrox: outrun the police, like a hero!
acuilador: But we're a grizzled man who takes no guff. Isn't that an instantly likeable character? All marketing drone say they are
Dyllbert: I assume the game never presents any sort of moral question about what we are doing? Its just bad and we know it is bad but we do it anyway?
I_Am_Clockwork: theres an interesting idea, when did this come out in relation the newer deus ex game?
TrakoZG: reach the suspect undetected *knocks down several light poles*
RealGamerCow: This character is a 10 year old boy's idea of a "vigilante hero"
raaabr: Also is that the assassin creed logo on his jacket
TehAmelie: i remember this idea i think Alex has talked about, a stealth game where you're a time traveler and have to avoid breaking character. that could be fun with the profiling all NPCs in sight stuff this game has going
aerobeing: He has a car RIGHT THERE!
Foxmar320: Good cars already shot up
Asimech: Graham's driving is painful to watch, because I drive like that in games as well, except I don't stream.
wildpeaks: ah yes, a car full of bullets, very stealthy
TehAmelie: you'd have to profile them without hacking though
ContingentCat: @raaabr not quite the AC logo but yeah the reference was probably intentional
Rhynerd: It wants you to be just as bad as the company, or worse.
aerobeing: Asimech, ever tried driving with a controller? I find it much easier to drive well with one instead of keyboard.
Fableist: this game reminds me alot of certain recent dc movies. one of the best examples of something that was changed for the worse by oversight and changing direction
Paranundrox: like, you're driving a criminal away from the police
Paranundrox: and the game keeps insisting you're in the right
raaabr: There isn''t a moment where the game pulls the rug out from under you and puts your character in the stark cold light of day
Aenir798: Parked car in the middle of the street
Xenovita: LUL
mtvcdm: An old parked car with bullet holes
Foxmar320: welp
ContingentCat: an old parked car like 2 feet from the curb
aerobeing: You're parked too far away from the curb to just be a parked car.
MarsIsDead: I can't pull over any farther!
raaabr: *Stealthy*
aerobeing: ContingentCat, parking ticket is how they got some mob boss or another, I guess. :D
mtvcdm: Also: the Chicago Loop is *not an island*.
Officinalis: 'Stealth fun!'
Mr_Dirty: if we kill everyone then it counts as stealth right? no witnesses
Asimech: @aerobeing Yeah, I drive *worse* than Graham if I'm using a keyboard/digital input.
azureHaights: Follow "the route"
OriginalGarwulf: I'd seriously love to have a running tally of the property damage in this.
wildpeaks: turn right instead of turning left ? what is this, a Doctor Who episode ? :D
raaabr: Huh. I wonder what a Ghost in the shell game would be like if it ad hte mechanics of Watch_dogs
raaabr: *had the
aerobeing: Asimech, yeah. I drive/fly with a controller and run/shoot with a KB/mouse in most games most of the fime.
cheetoJack: Just a normal parked car in a pedestrian mall
Drakas: hello sexys
Officinalis: Nothing to see here.
LaconicLad: that reminds me, I still haven't watched Arise.
splatty1: also, I like the music for this
Foxmar320: good they saw nothing
grgriffin3: Stealth!
ContingentCat: Why are they trying to make a big deal of this guy having killed someone when we shot someone in the street in the middle of the day not long ago
TehAmelie: how bad would it be to drive a real car with a keyboard and mouse?
Luminaire_p: "You're going the wrong way!"
wildpeaks: Aiden Pierce, master of stealth
Luminaire_p: "How do they know where we're going?"
Mr_Dirty: so are we roleplaying a drunk driver?
raaabr: @ContingentCat You could make a point for it if it was meant to be a pointed argument for how amoral you and your character are, if it was framed that way
aerobeing: TehAmelie, not sure if they've done that with a KB/mouse, but I'm pretty sure it has been done with a controller and also by using a Paint-like program.
Paranundrox: Aiden texts and drives
Asimech: @TehAmelie *Dry heaves in horror.*
raaabr: "This criminal killed a guy, he's super messed up headspace wise atm"
grgriffin3: We're roleplaying an UNCARING driver.
TehAmelie: we haven't caused any property damage in like 30 seconds
raaabr: "You killed a guy, you felt *nothing*"
TehAmelie: oops
MrBevers just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. MrBevers subscribed for 18 months in a row!
MrBevers: Thanks for all the months of entertainment, you are all awesome!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, MrBevers! (Today's storm count: 65)
ContingentCat: @raaabr yeah and if the game wasn't insisting you
ContingentCat: *you're a good person it would work great for that
TheAinMAP: Super stealthy.
NimrodXIV: nothing to see here, News
ExhaustedElox: I do appreciate when games make the setting feel like a city and not a series of buildings.
SnivianMoon: Oh god. I remember this part.
frozenphoenix7: You know sometimes I try to play GTA or other games as someone who drives following the rules of the road. Then the AI constantly rear ends me, cuts me off, or otherwise wrecks into me.
raaabr: I just see ways this game could be improved. But as exists, the framing isn't there. I agree, Contingent
aerobeing: TehAmelie, actually, I think that paint-thing was driving using a mouse.
TehAmelie: it's a big city too. it has a Pawnee "in" it
korvys: You just drove a man to his death?
TacitusVigil: I wonder if they decided to not call him "The Fox" when they realized what that would be translated into in the Spanish markets. Kappa
Fruan: teeth
acuilador: We're the good guys. Thats why we're evading the cops and delivering peoiple to the mob. TOTALLY the good guy
Fruan: Ahem. TEETH. Much better.
TehAmelie: i believe those are dentures
phorrestgaze: Not much character detail, he's probably a minor character.
corylus22: TEETH
Friedent: Freddy Delaney
TheMerricat: @frozenphoenix7 if IRC the fact that they couldn't get the AI to work properly was the actual reason for the initial GTA game.
TacitusVigil: Isn't he the bad guy in that Jack Reacher movie?
LaconicLad: he looks like how I feel after being awake for 36 hours.
chickenace11: He dead
Xenovita: TEETH
ContingentCat: @raaabr if there weren't other weird story probems I might think the mismatich of reputation and actual actions was intentional but I think that's giving them too much credit
wildpeaks: he super ded
Foxmar320: Don't mess with the old man
raaabr: And your character does NOTHING
NimrodXIV: ^
wildpeaks: we're such a good guy
grgriffin3: Our hero!
2rrr_mirror_breaker: spoiler, old man is ezio with that hidden blade
SnivianMoon: Our hero, folks.
azureHaights: Bad advice: Dodge that neck stab, 15 seconds ago
mtvcdm: We're the good guy!
chesul: hey, clean your knife before you resheath it.
Fableist: why is it so hard for you to have silencers on!
asddsa28: nope dont kill them
chesul: that's just bad blade care.
TehAmelie: none of my business!
Foxmar320: We saw nothing
zeraxilim: we're the good guy!
Aenir798: H E R O
DiscordianTokkan: "Yeah, cool, just checking the radio"
TacitusVigil: Our 'hero'
raaabr: Literally no emotion
Sarcastic_comma: what
keymaster515: hardcore
Scy_Anide: That would be a great scene if it weren't for Aiden...
korvys: Characterisation - Uncaring asshole
Fableist: homer backing into a bush gif
CleverCrumbish: Hey Aiden who are you talking to?
keymaster515: but not in a good way
raaabr: THEN WHY DIDN'T YOU
corpocracy: HAVE YOU?
Sarcastic_comma: emotion is a sign of weakness
Sarcastic_comma: :p
Paranundrox: But you'll steal from completely random people?
adi_pie: Put one between his eyes, or more easily, pinned the accelerator and run the ambulant skeleton down.
Drakas: im glade you get to kill him
raaabr: You could have, I dunno
raaabr: Hit them with your car
Sarcastic_comma: god this protag is so unlikable
raaabr: Also that old guy was such a bond villain
Mr_Dirty: we can hack money right? why work for the mob?
phorrestgaze: "I can make millions off of people walking by me in the street who left their bluetooth on"
aerobeing: raaabr, or just fucking SHOOT them with the GUN you have?!
grgriffin3: Aiden "Altair" Pierce.
Dyllbert: This dialog would go over better if our character had ever presented morals and wasn't just completely okay with stealing the last $100 from someones bank....
mtvcdm: Who are you?
mtvcdm: !smash
LRRbot: Put Beej in Smash, you cowards!
asddsa28: if you going to be robin hod kill the sharif
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: he's too deep 4 u Keepo
SnivianMoon: What is an Aiden?! A miserable little pile of machismo.
CleverCrumbish: Jordi so obviously exists only to make Aiden look better by comparison, and it is NOT working
SquareDotCube: A pile of sausages in a trenchcoat and cap
raaabr: I have Baby Driver on my mind atm, @aerobeing
Jorge4hg: crime?
NathanJay_GA: Have we unlocked the minigames yet? Those are pretty neat
chickenace11: Did we do said crime
acuilador: He robs from the poor to give to himself. Total hero.
aerobeing: raaabr, don't remember many specifics of it.
Viewers_Like_You: "Yes, tell criminals my name so I can do crimes for them."
TehAmelie: he's but a blank slate of hacks and gravel-voiced vigilantism
TacitusVigil: I know they're not, but with that voice flange, I really hoped they were a Goa'uld. Kappa
Vahden: I'm assuming "badboy" is a girl?
MadAran87: Was the point of this game to make the protagonist as unlikable as possible? To provoke soul-searching on the player's part? is that giving them too much credit?
DirgeNovak: yes
aerobeing: Vahden, yes.
wildpeaks: dead or paralyzed
raaabr: You could probably write a paper on how much of a cipher he is
Lazarus_18: @acuilador He dosn't rob the poor, he robs EVERYONE. Big difference.
acuilador: @vahden congrats on the total soul read
grgriffin3: They will be given a HARD slap on the wrist.
adi_pie: This reminds me of inFamous 2, where the cutscenes had to account for being either Mother Teresa or Satan, so your character was lways undecided. But at least the dialogue in-between was not in any way undecided on which one you were.
ContingentCat: @Vahden I'm hoping for an elderly british lady
aerobeing: Vahden, also not 17
andrew: Chicago's beautiful
Sarcastic_comma: yeah its pretty close to the real thing
grgriffin3: Chicago is nice.
underhill33: It looks decently Chicagoan
Sarcastic_comma: very Art Deco
corpocracy: There's way more traffic
TehAmelie: parkour!
SquareDotCube: Downtown Chicago is great
hoktauri: give it a year or two there'll be a PAX eventualy
RealGamerCow: Vahden the answer in this game is always "What would a 10 year old boys answer be?"
splatty1: I mean, real Chicago also has 2 levels of streets basically here
TrakoZG: Dr Cam, it has a lot of the highlights but missing the soul
ArcOfTheConclave: this is pretty authentic
phorrestgaze: Chicago's great! The architecture's congruent since it burned down twice.
aerobeing: ContingentCat, that would be good
timiam: Chicago is an awesome trip. Cool museums, aquarium, food, whatever you want.
Viewers_Like_You: Yes, I'll give the game this, it's a good Chicago impression
timiam: Well worth it.
JAGStow: This isnt where I parked my car.
TehAmelie: hey, i think i recognize that street
I_Am_Clockwork: note that Aiden asumes "he"
TehAmelie: i've been in Chicago but i didn't see a lot of it
aerobeing: I_Am_Clockwork, well, the name is "BadBoy"
I_Am_Clockwork: rather the writers have aiden asume "he"
Oatway_: there
adi_pie: So, you could say they're deadsec on keeping their identity safe?
Foxmar320: Normal man normal iconic hat
SnivianMoon: Every monologue Aiden gives, I expect to be answered with "Sir, this is an Arby's"
frozenphoenix7: Look Graham, I'm just saying, we're in Chicago and can hack the entire grid, we could find where CM Punk lives.
TacitusVigil: @I_Am_Clockwork It's badboy, not badgirl. Kappa
raaabr: tbh Badboy17 is....a very accurate user for someone like this
DirgeNovak: I'm surprised Ubi Montreal hasn't made Montreal in a game yet
grgriffin3: Well you tried, you idiot.
heronblademaster: cheer100 <insert excuse to donate bits here> #charity
ContingentCat: @I_Am_Clockwork to be fair it's a safe assuption for someone who calls themselves "bad boy"

Theycallmejokke: Bu wah A GIRL!?!
raaabr: A hoi hoi!
asthanius: a gurl? in my vidja game???
Oatway_: there's a great LA Noire article about someone playing the game with their dad who grew up in LA when the game is set
Aenir798: what is that outfit
Officinalis: We recruited her in Mass Effect 2 right?
Master_Gunner: Well this is a character design.
timiam: A+ plot twist, Ubisoft.
SquareDotCube: Though the funnier part is outside Chicago, of "picturesque northern Illinois"
TehAmelie: tbf Badboy17 is a pretty good username for hiding. . .all this
wildpeaks: character intensifies
frozenphoenix7: There is a lot here.
asddsa28: yay the love interest when dos the dog die .....
asthanius: Character design doc: cleavage. But like, tasteful????
grgriffin3: Her character design is....Someone who doesn't understand the culture, thinking that they understand the culture.
blip2004: she wears a shirt with her hacker symbol on it. subtle
raaabr: Wow
TehAmelie: the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Fanclub
Armstrong11139: In the words of someone wiser than I, there's a lot to unpack here
Duwani1: Her boobs seem really low - like she got a clavicle raise.
I_Am_Clockwork: woah bad touch
cheetoJack: I pretty sure in Watch Dogs 2 they split her character design in 3 and got 3 interesting support characters out of it
DirgeNovak: It's 500% funnier when you know who plays her
TacitusVigil: Story twist: They're all temporary tattoos Kappa
Dyllbert: TBH though, the "you don't look 17" line was pretty good
wildpeaks: personal space, AIden
raaabr: Aiden is *super* touchy
CleverCrumbish: Oooooh I don't feel good
frozenphoenix7: This is....not ok to me.
aerobeing: I like her, though.
korvys: The hacker is a liar? This is my shocked face :|
jonasjonIV: yes, please threaten the woman. thats what good people do!
Rockario: "He is a she" is the WEAKEST line of suspicion
mtvcdm: This is what good guys do. Mansplain to the master hacker.
BrindleBoar: yeah just grab someone's neck and demand trust
2rrr_mirror_breaker: as long as he never calls her an impossible girl im ok with it
Foxmar320: Yeah that creepy
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: @DirgeNovak who?
grgriffin3: OUR HERO
aerobeing: korvys :D
Jorge4hg: our hero
Sarcastic_comma: wow can we play the game as badboy17 she's a lot more interesting
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: hands off creep
timiam: "System hacks"
Viewers_Like_You: Do you really think someone would do that, just go on the internet and tell lies?
Galexandro: If he was ugly this would be so much creepier
TheMerricat: The girl with the .... X tattoo?
raaabr: You could probably analyze how the people who made this game posit this as a "good person" yet he does all these awful, creepy behaviors
SnivianMoon: This has unnecessary undertones.
asthanius: Aiden needs to stop talking
aerobeing: Sarcastic_comma, right? I totally want a prequel and a sequel with her.
TehAmelie: oh my cats, she has an Illuminati tattoo
Silver__Knight_: THE PEOPLE'S. HERO.
Ckiva: bleurgh
chickenace11: Cam's face is my face
raaabr: @Galexandro He's Creepy regardless
TriggerHappy2Pi: He seems rather casually misogynistic
emberBecky: *an eyeroll so big it cracks my skull*
BlandSpice: For a hacker, Aiden really doesn't get people anonymizing themselves
mtvcdm: Canw e play as Clara?
wildpeaks: you're one to talk, Aiden
acuilador: @Sarcastic_comma you say that. She's going to get super boring real quick.
mtvcdm: I would rather play as Clara.
TehAmelie: TheIlluminati
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I Run my life through this phone OF COURSE I'M GONNA HAND IT TO THE PERSON LYING TO ME
Foxmar320: Why is anything in this game
ContingentCat: you've stolen like 10 cars today Aiden you have no high horse in that department
ExhaustedElox: Our hero, ladies and gentlemen....
Viewers_Like_You: Wait, you HACKED something?!
adi_pie: mtvcdm, no, that would bring us joy
DirgeNovak: The actress is the literal opposite of Clara
aerobeing: lol Graham :D
Silver__Knight_: Good lord that is a LOW cut on that shirt.
AmoriLinguae: what about this game has given aiden the idea that stealing wouldn't be involved?
TacitusVigil: *burn*
slazer2au: TO be faor. People wore Lulsec when that was a thing a decade ago.
Fableist: she is helping you because of guilt she was involved in the death of his neice
grgriffin3: Dominated.
SnivianMoon: That's the sickest burn.
asddsa28: good can you tell us
Mr_Dirty: I would take any assassins creed character over our hero
TehAmelie: imagine if the game was about Clara, or like, just not about Aiden
Drakas: she was the one who stop the hack at the start of the game
gelatosquid: I don't remember, do they fuck later?
Jorge4hg: is it?
korvys: Ya Basic, Aiden
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: rekt
raaabr: So a handsy, creepy, gruff dude who steals from people ofof the street, breaks the law casually, and murders people
phorrestgaze: can we play as her?
ContingentCat: that's a serious burn
FerociousPeach: "Here, have this super special tech. Give me a reason to trust you with this tech i already gave you...."
Dyllbert: I mean if you expect nothing....
asthanius: @gelatosquid Unfortunately, I think so
aerobeing: gelatosquid, no. That's unreleased DLC.
azureHaights: "You're exactly what I expected, Aiden. A dumptruck fire full of nothing."
ExhaustedElox: Yayyyyyyy skills!
wildpeaks: !advice
LRRbot: Escape the cheesecake.
raaabr: Our hero, Ladies, Gentlemen, and others
grgriffin3: More battery = more hacking.
ExhaustedElox: Batteries = more power uses
asthanius: @aerobeing I thought there was something in the crate at the end?
splatty1: they just spin around for a bit
wildpeaks: you mean "hack the cheesecake", lrrbot
SnackPak_: autogyro?
aerobeing: asthanius, that's Fifth Element.
heronblademaster: I never figured out how to use half of this stuff when I played through this game
CleverCrumbish: @phorrestgaze No, and there is... a complication with the notion of potentially doing so in the sequel
TehAmelie: they just stop and hover for a minute, i'm sure
s0lesurviv0r: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:45:19.
cheetoJack: if you disable the helicopter it goes to a farm upstate to live out the rest of its years
BrindleBoar: the people who aren't in or underneath the helo live, that's pretty close to everyone
I_Am_Clockwork: I think if they abandoned the "do-gooder robinhood" pretense, this could have been a neat hiest game
DirgeNovak: Can't wait for her to heroically sacrifice herself for Aiden's cause
jigokuro_temp: In reality, helicopters that lose engines are typically fine. In this they probably explode.
wildpeaks: 9
Dyllbert: How do you know her last name now...?
aerobeing: asthanius, or do you mean some clothing or something?
Foxmar320: DED
asthanius: Yes!
ExhaustedElox: LMAO
BrindleBoar: RIP
insane_42: WASTED
wildpeaks: perfect
TacitusVigil: [Wasted]

Armstrong11139: I love how the phone call doesn't so much as pause
corpocracy: Even if you did have to meet face to face, why would she give her real name?
phorrestgaze: just get caught in the wheel and kill him
raaabr: That was so satisfying
ExhaustedElox: Keeps the conversation going while wrecking
Brok3nGol3m: Cam, THAT's Batman
TehAmelie: speaking of the coat, can we get the iconic pisscoat yet?
grgriffin3: He was creepy because of REASONS! We swear, he's totally normal!
ContingentCat: @Armstrong11139 yeah she heard the crash and just doesn't care
ExhaustedElox: Oh god, Aiden was totally a PUA in his 20s
Armstrong11139: @ContingentCat Can't blame her
SquareDotCube: My favorite creash in this game is when you got him to lawn dart into the ground

Paranundrox: excuse me?
TacitusVigil: Oh no...
Mister_BlueSky: Instrument cleaner? Kreygasm
raaabr: Nazi furs...
n3ther: he answers enthusiastically
TacitusVigil: He's not going to "clean" those instruments...

asthanius: People had to write these conversations
wildpeaks: instrument cleaner :D
Foxmar320: stelthy
grgriffin3: Stealth!
BrindleBoar: "do you have any experience with instruments"

Sarcastic_comma: No
I_Am_Clockwork: It is super not
aerobeing: Yes.
asddsa28: no there camras for that
Brok3nGol3m: no. there's a lot more texting, youtube, etc
Tiber727: I assume the guards would be looking at cameras.
korvys: Pretend to be a Tuba
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: yes but there are WAY fewer guards
FinalShowFilms: I have worked as a guard.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: "no. kind of. yes."
Driosenth: Here's a better question, why does Aiden know how to effectively communicate with people with all these different kinks
I_Am_Clockwork: well as my friend tells it anyway
ExhaustedElox hums Epic Sax Guy to distract the guy that likes instruments.
shurtal: guard duty has a lot of standing on guard, for thee
Brok3nGol3m: Sometimes they even look up
Foxmar320: welp
FinalShowFilms: It's mostly standing and walking around
TacitusVigil: Fun fact: Guards can't look up. Kappa
NotCainNorAbel: as long as nick cage isn't around it is pretty boring
FinalShowFilms: And being aware.
Ckiva: I assume that guard duty is basically sitting in front of a door. And you pay attention when someone comes nearby.
corpocracy: My security guard at my work talks to us a lot
Sarcastic_comma: don't kill the oboe fucker
mtvcdm: Oh hi hello
Vanderhof: hack dem bombs?

CleverCrumbish: Aiden "Gluewaist" Pearce
korvys: I feel like that is a realistic outcome
splatty1: aiden forgot to turn of sticky walls
Mr_Dirty: use a bigger stealth gun?
Brok3nGol3m: < works in security. I miss the days before cell phones

wildpeaks: we're an evil wizard with a magic tech wand
ContingentCat: smooth
Ckiva: how so Brok3nGol3m >
Ckiva: ?
aerobeing: That comment was perfect, though.
phorrestgaze: My building's guard watches youtube on one of his 24 little streams, the other 23 being cameras. He's actually effective, noticed someone moving around in a car today that'd ridden in with a woman and was waiting for her to come back.
aerobeing: The "whatever, not my problem"
Brok3nGol3m: @Ckiva my staff was more vigilant. Actually looked up when people walked by
aerobeing: phorrestgaze, with or without her knowledge?
the_number_two2: Get into the car... Vehicular homicide??
TehAmelie: you just can't play Dark Souls or games that can't be paused

phorrestgaze: @aerobeing without
wildpeaks: I think they already know we're here
FerociousPeach: time to be the good guy, and murder all these schlubs
aerobeing: phorrestgaze, oh, wow
grgriffin3: You unlock a silenced assault rifle later in the game and at that point the game is officially over.
TacitusVigil: Quick Graham, hack their bodies with your bullets!
Zyme86: Cam they talked about that on Leverage. Before cell phones getting ifo off people in shows required sooooo much more effort. With cellphones, it turns into a bump grift followed by a sim card swap and you ahve most evertying for most phones
TehAmelie: this is a lot of bullets. doesn't feel like casual difficulty.
Welbog: It's convenient that the guards don't have regenerating health.
azureHaights: I think your window for using silencers is kind of over
NotCainNorAbel: real game
korvys: They're red, Graham
azureHaights: Crates?
wildpeaks: wodden crates
ContingentCat: TNT
Aenir798: keys?
Brok3nGol3m: katesBeans katesBeans katesBeans
Mister_BlueSky: Deagle?
Furvias: Crate
chesul: Crate?
korvys: Crate
mtvcdm: Anything can blow up if you try hard enough.
TehAmelie: 1911?
Kykiwi: pallets
aerobeing: C4?
ContingentCat: oh yeah Crates
LaconicLad: graham and his undying hatred of barrels.
Rhynerd: Crates or zombies
Rhynerd: Or both?
Foxmar320: Im sure now that we are inside they won't follow us
SnivianMoon: What was this game's Time To Crate? O
aerobeing: Rhynerd, zombie crates.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: and a generator that has to be started
SnivianMoon: I'm guess low.
CleverCrumbish: "Those hacks"
azureHaights: Odin crates. Boxes of the Allfather.
TacitusVigil: Oooh, CHIP brand chips.
CleverCrumbish: You know, how hackers talk
asthanius: I love CHIP and ENERGY DRINK
the_number_two2: What about KeyQuest?
Rhynerd: Maybe it’s more of a holy square.
corpocracy: Where are those guards you left behind?
until_may: cam looks liberated
Brok3nGol3m: we only buy the best in generic for our people!
grgriffin3: I hope the world stops advancing technology before we get to "hackable grenades".
frozenphoenix7: "Welcome to Crate & Barrel,your friendly local munitions supplier. We've got a screaming deal going on our M24's this Black Friday weekend."
wildpeaks: you'd think the guards outside would have alerted the people inside
adi_pie: "Everything has computer chips these days" Yes, they do. Not everything is wirelessly accessible though, game.
blast_shark: This guard is pretty calm for that firefight that happened down the hallway
Lazarus_18: God, these VA's have NO chemistry
aerobeing: You hacked it or she sent an email from her main.
grgriffin3: I do think the camera-maze puzzles are clever.
JOZeldenrust: Their idea of OpSec is... unusual.
TacitusVigil: He did a Google Image Search and found her Facebook profile. Duh. Kappa
CleverCrumbish: Clara takes a brief moment to explain Aiden's job to him. He is held in rapt attention as if he has never heard of a computer before
heronblademaster: @adi_pie bluetooth 7.0 is backward-compatible with non-wireless devices
auxv: Call me old fashioned, but i prefer my grenades analogue.
Mister_BlueSky: Sometimes you have to hitch a ride on a guard's bodycam.
TehAmelie: i remember when Sombra was new in Overwatch and someone posted this little scene of her hacking Genji's butt. that still makes me laugh. "Hacker voice I'm in"
adi_pie: Come on, Graham, we all know there are only 3 people with Quebecois accents in Boston. Clearly we can figure out her last name.
aerobeing: TehAmelie :D
wildpeaks: instead of hacking grenades, hacking people's defibrillator for example would make more sense
Foxmar320: lol
Aenir798: What a competent guardsman
Paranundrox: He *was* an expert in bomb disposal
Mediocre_Man5: "expert in bomb disposal"
grgriffin3: He was an "expert in bomb disposal" too!
TrakoZG: wildpeaks hacking a pacemaker?
Paranundrox: was
Furvias: Silenced Pistol, Exploding Barrels and a Melodica Fucker... what a game
Mr_Dirty: welp Steve was dumb nothing to see.
TacitusVigil: Can we hack their shoes so we tie their laces together?
heronblademaster: @wildpeaks I have a gastric stimulator implanted in my stomach, that's a genuinely terrifying thing to think about
wildpeaks: yes exactly, forgot the name for a second
frozenphoenix7: We're obviously hacking their phones and making them so volatile that they explode.
mtvcdm: Everything can explode.
aquaticwater22: Dumbass
NotCainNorAbel: moonbase has no explosive platnes in the hallway?
frozenphoenix7: Because when you heat up metals and electricity and something something kaboom.
Vanderhof: Oh is Clara's last name "Little" supposed be Alice Liddell-ques from Alice in wonderland? Through the looking glass and all that jazz?
TrakoZG: can we hack an IOT lightbulb to explode?
Fableist: in the sequel you can make random people on the streets phones melt down or fry them!
Foxmar320: Why did we even install these explosive plates?!
mtvcdm: That man got some airtime.
Rockario: A lot of stuff has ddegrade in this abundant future, like safety standards for high-voltage fuses
Brok3nGol3m: situational awareness training fails
phorrestgaze: Why do they even have those?
CleverCrumbish: @Vanderhof Given her name is "Lille", probably not
chesul: what was that? stand on the explosive plates? strange, but OK!
FerociousPeach: hey, new gun for free, lol
phorrestgaze: "Made by a sexist edgelord"
ContingentCat: when was this game released? it seems very of a specific time
SerGarretCameron: She's legally distinct Lisbeth Salander
asthanius: Clara's design is entirely fetish-based.
wildpeaks: Aiden can look plain, but as always, the female characters have to be flashy
Mr_Dirty: Nerd/hacker/punk rock/hot chick?
grgriffin3: Clara's design is "technophobic old white dude's idea of female hacker".
TehAmelie: it might be a clever play on Pippi Longstocking, the inspiration for Lisbet "Girl with the dragon tattoo" Salander that was clearly the inspiration for Clara.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: it looks like they were going for 'The girl with the Dragon Tattoo" but didn't stop with just one tattoo
TrakoZG: SerGarretCameron pretty spot on there
korvys: @Bobtheninjagoldfish Exactly what I was thinking
TehAmelie: or that may be giving the game too much credit
jigokuro_temp: I do know someone that looks mostly like that, but they aren't a hacker.
screamingpeasant: Let's be fair. it'd be more like a bookmark folder
Fableist: just wait till you have to break out of prison
azureHaights: You down with OCP?
TrakoZG: RIP tumblr
Ckiva: I think they just said "make her look as edgy as possible but still sexy"
corpocracy: Okay, so why is killing all of these guys fine, but not killing that crime boss?
grgriffin3: @azureHaights yeah, you know me.
asthanius: @screamingpeasant "References 1"
azlan121: I dunno, I know plenty of girls that look like that, seems fairly standard 20-something-former-emo-kid-turned-rocker type
TheAinMAP: Ouch.
frozenphoenix7: I'm flashing back to when Graham and Alex and Ben streamed Kona(partially because I watched those not too long ago) where they discussed albeit briefly, writing descriptions of female characters by men.
the_number_two2: Wasted

emberBecky: her design doesn't bug me as much as the fact that he needs to immediately 1) question her validity 2) touch her
TacitusVigil: Our occupation *is* error, that is correct.
Vanderhof: @CleverCrumbish sure, but the quest is also called "open your world"
frozenphoenix7: The entire scenario was not ok.
TehAmelie: i want to see Robocop fight Aiden. with his wrist spike hacking thingy. in his butt.
TrakoZG: open yourworld.exe?
mtvcdm: Clara's design didn't faze me. Aiden's reaction to her did.
NotCainNorAbel: some well paid security guards
Fableist: that guy can take you to the next area if you stick on his cam graham
grgriffin3: PMCs are inherently evil, everyone!
Brok3nGol3m: I mean, I'm an asshole
FinalShowFilms: PMCs are evil, Graham
ContingentCat: and "suspected of" is enough to justify killing them
mtvcdm: "Survived car bomb explosion" makes someone evil?
aerobeing: Unfortunately true for some locations, though.
the_terror_that_flaps_: I feel their a design note for Clara that reads "Tactically deep neckline"
FerociousPeach: they're all *suspected* of being bad people, so it's ok to murder them
phorrestgaze: I've seen that anime
TehAmelie: those rotating statues are evil. how many KWHs you think they're burning?
chibi_bento: so, I don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet, but while 'our hero's' actions would weird me out no matter what, the fact that he's a white hetero male makes it extra squicky. we don't need more narratives reinforcing that white cishet guys should still expect to be beloved heroes even if they're doing terrible, creepy things all the time.
Furvias: how is "Survived car bomb explosion" make them a bad person
auxv: terrible people, who may or may not shag pianos
frozenphoenix7: "Zombie fetish" So he watches Saga as well I see
Rhynerd: Zombie fetish? I’ve seen that anime.
hoktauri: So it's okay to kill people who have kinks
Vanderhof: Umm also... its okay to kill terrible people?
mtvcdm: That ones's a charity jooger. What a jerk!
hoktauri: there goes my customer base
Genderi: "mind control"?!???!??
Asimech: Yeah, Clara's neckline screams "cleave no matter the cost".
TacitusVigil: @mtvcdm It's ok, he cheats by running.
Asimech: *cleavage
screamingpeasant: Look; we can't be the good guy if they're not bad. And being different from you is how you tell (i.e kink shaming)
TrakoZG: blue it good
Oatway_: dude does not look 39
grgriffin3: He's the head of security and he only makes 115k? Odd.
azureHaights: Ooh, quebecois?
DirgeNovak: You just blue your cover
BrindleBoar: did she just get an accent?
TrakoZG: grgriffin3 he's just the head grunt, not an exec
Fableist: you can just leave?
I_Am_Clockwork: "the guy who sold me these" implying the grenades aren't standard issue
Foxmar320: The double!
azlan121: and now all I can think of is arrested development
TehAmelie: heck, that's ten times my salary
Armstrong11139: @BrindleBoar She's been on about half an accent the whole time
Mister_BlueSky: Can we not go back the way we came?
Drakas: she allready knows who did it
NathanJay_GA: yeah, it's time to leave
grgriffin3: @TrakoZG That makes more sense.
BrindleBoar: I didn't notice it before
wildpeaks: awkward
Sarcastic_comma: its amazing how they made such an interesting an relevant concept with the hacking and seeing so bland
grgriffin3: You can just leave, you know.
TrakoZG: I like the vernacular "soda pop dispenser"
TrakoZG: this is accurate to Chicago
Scar_Red_Tiger: Artful takedown
TehAmelie: soda? pop? ah, soda pop
DiscordianTokkan: Justa a pile of bodies
mtvcdm: Take THAT, car bomb explosion survivor!
Agnememnon: the old wait behind a vending machine trick
BlandSpice: How close to The Division was this? Ubi seriously seemed be on a theme
wildpeaks: it reminds me of the heart in Dishonored that also tells you secrets about people
Rhynerd: Think they’ll all just walk into your choke radius?
screamingpeasant: suspected != guilty of
Mr_Dirty: +2 soda of cover
TehAmelie: wow Dishonored was a steampunk Watch Dpgs
ApodoNuevo: Wait, was that one "survived a car bomb"?
NotCainNorAbel: kill the jogger!
TehAmelie: Dogs
CanvasWolfDoll: i dunno, all the 'suspected' and 'acquitted' don't make me fine.
Genderi: +10 xp!
NathanJay_GA: You can just leave if you want
Mr_Dirty: but they are all worth xp
aerobeing: He was acquitted using bribing.
mtvcdm: Acquitted? That means he's guilty!
CanvasWolfDoll: are any of them actually bad?
aerobeing: And corruption.
Foxmar320: No survivors
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Said Mean Things About Failsafe"
hoktauri: it's okay to murder the animal abuser, everyone else is eh....
TrakoZG: ^
TehAmelie: yikes, i made a Beej belch noise just now. be happy no one heard it
Rockario: Suspected by whom?
Armstrong11139: It is funny how only some of them are capable of calling in reinforcements
phorrestgaze: The hate crime guy aws the best at shooting
I_Am_Clockwork: not even proven, just suspected.
Fableist: back the way you came?
NathanJay_GA: Back the way you came
BrindleBoar: suspect, therefore murderable
splatty1: couldn't you just walk out the way you came in?
grgriffin3: Go back out hte way you came, I htink.
tapdancingbeavers: How do we know someone hasn't hacked their records and added a criminal record
mtvcdm: "Enjoys Nickelback"
Zachasaurs: Doors-exist, but cant use
screamingpeasant: could the reading that the game is coding them as bad correct? I mean, my browser history....
Inkompetence: Suspected by The Algorithm.
Sarcastic_comma: I wonder if this game ever reflects on the moral issues with all the murders
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Pudding Enthusiast"
Sarcastic_comma: prob not
splatty1: soooo, who programed furry recognition into ctOS?
TehAmelie: oh, i figured it was Aiden's homebrew profiling software
Prince40000: ahh yes we should base our kills on cityOS the thing that we spend the entire game fighting
Scar_Red_Tiger: Ah, the Light Yagami system of justice.
Foxmar320: mmmm jam
asthanius: @splatty1 A very committed employee
grgriffin3: Com jams!
Viewers_Like_You: "Chicago doesn't like you."
SnivianMoon: Jam on the coms, jam on the coms!
Rockario: I would hope with all the surveillance that CityOS would *know* if he did a hate-crime or not
TacitusVigil: I wonder how far the game will try to make a guard look bad. "Never tips the delivery guy"
insane_42: give them the raspberry Kappa
TrakoZG: jamieJamjar the comms
phorrestgaze: the red's faded you're fine.
the_number_two2: Cam Joms!
wildpeaks: 10
insane_42: get it? raspberry jam, raspberry pi
Foxmar320: Need more potent jam
wildpeaks: :D
Sarcastic_comma: ded
phorrestgaze: that would definitely be cool with the youth
mtvcdm: That driver? Dead.
Viewers_Like_You: Hacked!
grgriffin3: I do like the "bwEEEEEEooooo" sound of escaping the cops, too.
asthanius: Welcome to 2006
Cinntoastmin: badger ;-;
circusofkirkus: did the developers get stuck in an early 00s internet loop?
CleverCrumbish: CURRENT. MEMES.
BrindleBoar: a snake a snake!
Viewers_Like_You: The freshest memes
randomino5: D:
RTWarner: The multiplayer hide and seek in this game is among my favourite gaming experiences
Vanderhof: I mean G did the only sensible thing, once you have shot one, do not leave any witnesses
Furvias: It's an old meme sir but it checks out
Theycallmejokke: Hallo fellow youths
DirgeNovak: We get a beat underground lair later on
TrakoZG: he bounced his signal around> SEVEN PROXIES onoes
Prince40000: yeah @RTWarner the invading game was awsome
Genderi: I like how you got to just turn around
Laserbeaks_Fury: "There's only one way to deal with a trap. We have to set it off"
Viewers_Like_You: Don't forget, this takes place in the far-flung future of "2013"
RealGamerCow: The coolest thing about this game is the QR code graffiti
Mister_BlueSky: im in ur base hackin ur ctosz
TrakoZG: also CHicago has way fewer hills
Sarcastic_comma: watchdogs 2 protag is sooo much better
TrakoZG: it is pretty flat
screamingpeasant: DBZ abridged "I know you're playing me" line pretty much
waser3000 just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. waser3000 subscribed for 34 months in a row!
waser3000: it's a trap, "well I gotta go see it now!"
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, waser3000! (Today's storm count: 69)
grgriffin3: Well, for Chicago, corruption is business as usual at City Hall.
TacitusVigil: I'm just glad Ubisoft didn't make this a present-day set Assassin's Creed game.
Mr_Dirty: hell they could just say yes it is a trap bring me the big rocket launcher
RTWarner: @Prince40000 so much fun to watch people run around trying to find you
Genderi: the 3rd lane is for real life too, if you try hard enough!
Asimech: Sounded like party poppers.
Prince40000: @RTWarner my favorite was calmly walking around and acting like a NPC, seriously getting the right walking speed is super diffuclt
Furvias: I really want to know the story of how a whole city got onto one OS
FerociousPeach: the smart and rational thing would be to confirm where he is, watch him from a distance for 2-3 months, then take him out from a distance, lol
Jorge4hg: but why
ContingentCat: you could just not
Furvias: that seems like a compelling story seed
FerociousPeach: so clearly, we're going to just walk right in
auxv: everyone waffles on the "this is a trap" seed
azureHaights: "Yknow, the funny thing is? I know you're playing me. ...And you're right."
adi_pie: And then the reptoids came?
TacitusVigil: So many things to hack. I'm sure that portends nothing.
FerociousPeach: this doesn't look like a set piece at all, nope
Vanderhof: Or... instead of taking the bait, use some of the money that you stole from people and pay the hitman dude that helps you, to take him out?
Officinalis: Damp roof is the worst type of roof.
TrakoZG: Furvias bribe enough politicians, can do anything.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: There were rumors that this was linked to the AC franchise, right?
the_number_two2: I would love it if that was a crapshot with Alex and Kathleen's mercenery characters. "This is a trap." "I know. We'll need more C4 then."
ContingentCat: would make his vaugely AC logo make sense
TrakoZG: ^
DoctorOfBeard: hack those chest high walls!
Asimech: @Officinalis I present to you: Steel roof covered with brick dust.
mtvcdm: You know what other game tried real hard to have a protag super-hacker and failed? Remember Me.
Krokaar: my ankles hurt just thinking about falling 3 feet
grgriffin3: @Bobtheninjagoldfish they basically are linked. A video in AssCreed Origins shows this character murdering a character from AssCreed 4.
aerobeing: @vanderhof Gotta find out who to take out first?
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: right, i'm off to bed. bye folks! thanks for talking!
mew4ever23: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:09:30.
DirgeNovak: It's in the Assassin's Creed universe. You kill an AC4 character in this.
wildpeaks: would have looked too much like Deus Ex
raaabr: Heeeey I'm back
SerGarretCameron: it's Deus Ex by way of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
MostCallMe__Tim: Um Graham.... I just found an article that would have been a REALLY important story for checkpoint. Apparently game devs are unionizing in the UK
Vanderhof: @aerobeing but... we can hack everyone, and just keep paying out till we get the right one?
NathanJay_GA: I just wanna know why the construction lift is running a full CentOS installation
Skyboss1996: OH BOY. The return of PISS COAT
wildpeaks: talking of that, Deus Ex would be great for talking sim
grgriffin3: The only reason that this and AssCreed being linked doesn't make sense is that I would be SURE that DedSec and the Assassins would be workign together by now.
Viewers_Like_You: What if Black Mirror but too much?
Jorge4hg: angry coat
ArcOfTheConclave: lrrEFF ing luddites
I_Am_Clockwork: later friends. gotta head home from work
I_Am_Clockwork: catch you in the vod
ContingentCat: damn that coat wants away
FerociousPeach: "Oh noez teh facebooks!" *spooky music*
wildpeaks: coat is trying to nope the fuck out
TacitusVigil: "Are we the baddies?"
Sarcastic_comma: so your the bad guy
Skyboss1996: mostly yes
frozenphoenix7: Now you access the box.
wildpeaks: must have been really frustrating for the dev team
BlandSpice: From an IT perspective, you are literally playing the worst kind of person: Black Hats
TrakoZG: Dr Cam, it sounds like they sold the idea on the right (or most gullible) council members, yay committee
korvys: Instead of "Cellphones have security concerns, isn't that terrible? You shoul be concerned" it's "Cellphones have security concerns, isn't that rad? You should have fun"
TehAmelie: you blue it all up
DirgeNovak: Ubisoft only tells one story in all their games
TehAmelie: even child of Light?
grgriffin3: You have to actually click on it to open it, yeah.
Foxmar320: nice apartment. so clean
aerobeing: I would argue that what you did, i.e. hacking, does not warrant a murder of your family.
Zachasaurs: lol nice math
GloriousMost: How can he see such detail with such a tiny screen?
Rockario: Bellwether? Like, the assistant mayor?
Skyboss1996: how... is the laptop moving?
TehAmelie: wasn't Bellwether an organization in Deus Ex too?
wildpeaks: typical orgy of evidence, check
Officinalis: Was that an open box of diapers?
Mysticman89: I wanna look at that math to see if it's anything recognisable
grgriffin3: @TehAmelie I thought the same thing, but that's BellTOWER.
TehAmelie: ah
electroswagnetism: It was Belltower in deus ex, yeah
adi_pie: Oh, right, Willem Dafoe is in this game.
Zachasaurs: @Mysticman89 i saw sum funtions and some probability stuff
wildpeaks: ah yes, threatening his sister, very funny prank
raaabr: No sir, he hasn't lost his EDGE
wildpeaks: our character is all edge
frozenphoenix7: The Mer-Lautte.
Jorge4hg: ohh yeah that thing we don't know
Juliamon: Bellwether is a common business name, and was used as the example company when I took a tax software course.
TehAmelie: i was pretty sure. . .the words have very similar mouthfeel i guess
azureHaights: Willem DeFaux?
ContingentCat: how rude
aerobeing: @raaabr just founf his LTE
Mysticman89: a common thing for *science* and *math* is to put up stuff like schrodingers equationn and other real equations,
aerobeing: found
raaabr: LTE?
Foxmar320: We only know how to shoot mans so lets do that
adi_pie: It's fine, that guys is sleeping now.
Mysticman89: so curious if they bothered with that, or literally just put random summations
Viewers_Like_You: You'll pay for character development, but you'll only get THE EDGE
mtvcdm: We're the hero!
aerobeing: raarg, 4G internet
SnivianMoon: Man, this city is NOT up to OSHA code.
TehAmelie: you'll always be our Science Dad, Williem Defoe
SnivianMoon: So many explosions.
mtvcdm: This is what the good guys do!
grgriffin3: Some of them ARE things that explode!
Lynks_9: i feel like even with a centralised OS, things shouldnt just be able to blow up instantly. sure you could damage it, but instabooms?
OriginalGarwulf: So, is there a public menace greater than the player character? Really, not seeing one...
Officinalis: Not beside the protectors, just the exploders.
Despoiler98: That man disappearted
slazer2au: DruthersHaver They killed a marksman, not killed with marksman abilities.
screamingpeasant: *takes notes* never attach my bombs to the wifi
DruthersHaver: @slazer2au oh that makes sense
TehAmelie: the only one AIden can never profile. . .is himself
grgriffin3: "Alaskan Militants"?
FerociousPeach: and this is why we don't put our grenades on instagram :)
Despoiler98: who wears explosives that are network capable?
the_terror_that_flaps_: @SnivianMoon yeah, like they need a better vetting process for the City Planner
phorrestgaze: someone marketing internet connected grenades needs a raise.
Asimech: The sound of the suppressed pistol really bugs me.
SnivianMoon: "Hey boss! You want we should rig this highly volatile explosive charge to this internet connected electrical panel?" "Yeah, why not?"
grgriffin3: You just killed a former SEAL!
korvys: seabatHITBOX
Clockwork_Soldier: hirboxes
raaabr: Ahh
wildpeaks: we broke the chains of love
Asimech: It's like somebody went "usual 'suppressed firearm' sounds aren't close enough to lasers."
Despoiler98: @SnivianMoon totally normal
SnivianMoon: Entirely normal!
screamingpeasant: life hack. disable the wireless on your grenades and manually pull the trigger
orionsrise1: the cover system on this game was atrocious
Mysticman89: see, this is all part of an evil government plan and you're unwittingly working for them. they installed a secret hacker backdoor and 'accidentally' let you learn it.
wildpeaks: it's like red barrels
raaabr: I kinda want a game where every line from the gruff protagonist is just a low murmur ala Sam Elliot
aerobeing: raaabr, EDGE was one of the 2G cell standards.
azureHaights: "How many levels of trope are you on"
ArcOfTheConclave: Milenium park.
raaabr: Hah, I get it
Rockario: Of course Instagram is why the grenades are IoT! They communicate with all nearby cameras to post a picture whenever the grenade goes off
auxv: Slaps roof of grenade "This baby has so much bandwidth"
grgriffin3: When Bourne Identity have supressed pistols that actually sounded like supressed pistols I was amazed.
phorrestgaze: rip
Foxmar320: That man had a family
Officinalis: Waaagh!
Jorge4hg: he's fine
circusofkirkus: that sounded like some bones crunching
aerobeing: That crunch.
raaabr: I heard the crunching
Despoiler98: "injured"
Viewers_Like_You: Hacked!
TehAmelie: that car blocking pole went to orbit
Zaraka00: I havent seen a game use the old night vision goggle sound recently which is nice
Dyllbert: There were/are suppressors that actually sound like that, but they only work for about 10 shots before they have to be replaced
the_number_two2: aaaaaauu
Despoiler98: you shattered his spine and that's "injured"
aerobeing: Viewers_Like_You :D
Aenir798: How does your public reputation go down? Does everyone know who you are and what you look like?
screamingpeasant: @raaabr ddin't saints row 3? allow you to be a zombie where you just go "bahh" all game
Mr_Dirty: so we hit a person in a stolen car and they knew it was us?
raaabr: "Sure, he runs into people on the street. But he fights the GOOD fight"
hd_dabnado: the beeeean
DiscordianTokkan: Demitorus
wildpeaks: !advice
LRRbot: You can't break it any more once it's already broken.
ContingentCat: the legally distincy bean
Despoiler98: CHICAGO
Asimech: I know suppressed weapons sound generally like that in media, but this sounds exceptionally "pew, pew pew".
aerobeing: Aenir798, I wonder if it's actually reputation with dedsec?
chibi_bento: I prefer breaking celery for my bone-crunching foley, personally.

raaabr: "Don't you ever loosen up"
Uristqwerty just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. Uristqwerty subscribed for 5 months in a row!

shurtal: Arch is taller, but bean is T H I C C
raaabr: "I never feel anything"
Eklinaar: oh he does look like a young Tom Waits
Rockario: I think there's another Anish Kapoor sculpture in a different city that made Chicago really pissed?
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: yup giant chrome bean is chicago
FerociousPeach: and of course, despite all the people he's thoughtlessly killed in the last 36 hours, he doesn't just shoot this asshole
grgriffin3: The Merlaut.
Viewers_Like_You: Off-brand Legume
tim19862: legally distinct sculpture lrrBEEJ
TehAmelie: and yes i do believe they wanted Tom Waits here
Rockario: The Merloc?
ContingentCat: it's actually called skygate or someting dumb he hates that everyone calls it the bean o everyone calls it the bean
ArkhamArchivist: the Mer-Latte
BrindleBoar: MURLOC!
Rhynerd: the Merlaut.
Officinalis: Vantablack was cool, then it became tacticool, which is soooo much bad.
Fruan: If anyone doesn't know what they're talking about and wants to google it, it's called "Cloud Gate"
shurtal: Merlaut, Merlaut, john madden
wildpeaks: Merlaüt
banachspacebar: I'd like a nice glass of Merlaut right now.
TacitusVigil: How old was she? I wish they would tell us.
Despoiler98: could ANY of these games have a protaganist that doesn't sound like Batman?

Asimech: This guy screams "going to betray you in some way before the end".
TehAmelie: i don't see the Batman voice, Aiden's gravel sounds so obviously forced to me
korvys: Is "Big Teeth" the new "Big Mood"?
mtvcdm: Why are their jackets staying dry in a rainstorm?
electroswagnetism: TEETH
tim19862: korvys the old big mood, this is from 2014 lrrBEEJ LUL
Rhynerd: @mtvcdm sheer force of anger.
Jorge4hg: holy moly this coat
Aziraphalesshop: Was that an eyeroll Graham?
wildpeaks: I think he means bullets
mtvcdm: Coat why
grgriffin3: Tell, don't show, right?
tim19862: Jorge4hg yeah, the whole time
screamingpeasant: gun to the face is the ultimate silver tongue
hoktauri: social engineering via baton to the face
FerociousPeach: it would be fun, but would cost too much to program
Rhynerd: @mtvcdm would you want to be near Aiden Pearce?
the_number_two2: ex-po-si-tion! Clap! Clap! Clapclapclap!
wildpeaks: there are some great accounts on twitter on the topic
Officinalis: Social engineering is nominally a big thing in Watch Dogs 2.
Aziraphalesshop: Cam, Deviant Ollam is a fantastic speaker on it.
Vanderhof: @hoktauri "I am social reengineer your face" xD
Brok3nGol3m: they show the veneer of ignorance and luck that protect most things
Vanderhof: gonna*
TehAmelie: i'm a rogue social engineer
tim19862: Aziraphalesshop yes, also bypass entry
ContingentCat: um "flamboyant mayor" ?
Aziraphalesshop: @tim19862 Yeah
Dyllbert: Black-hat ethical hacking, including social manipulation would be a very interesting field to get into
SnowToad: TALKING SIMULATORRRRRRR
RealGamerCow: We had a team do a social engineering test on our company. They dropped 10 USB keys around th ecampus with things like "Wedding" "Taxes" "XXX" "Games", etc labels on them. 7 out of the 10 keys were plugged in.
FerociousPeach: @Aziraphalesshop his videos on physical pen-testing are awesome too
RealGamerCow: The XXX was plugged in the most.
tim19862: Aziraphalesshop oh and elevators :D
Aziraphalesshop: @tim19862 I've recently been binging his stuff
MousseFilledCat: The reporter who did that interview was in my high school class
tim19862: me too
SnowToad: Are we talking about some social engineering?
tim19862: good stuff
wildpeaks: or a delivery package
MousseFilledCat: We did crosswords together in senior English because we both got in to college Early Decision
RealGamerCow: The US got into Iran's computers with dropped USB keys as well.
FerociousPeach: @Dyllbert still very much illegal
Pl4sm4_Ro4ch_jtv: Social engineering is soo simple now days. twisting words, usb keys, fake company emails.
Fruan: Clip board, labcoat and a frown. Gets you anywhere.
hoktauri: I see security at my building open the gates for food all the time
ExhaustedElox: Working for DDomino's, I learned that no one will stop a driver in uniform, carrying a pizza bag.
corpocracy: The Wire has a great scene with an inmate walking out of a secure facility with a mop bucket
slazer2au: DEFCON has an asstonne of videos on social engineering.
Officinalis: How to sneak into a concert. Go around the back while carrying a big bag of ice.
GloriousMost: I remember the demo footage for this game did social engineering stuff
SnivianMoon: I love the movie "Sneakers" precisely because they do social engineering in addition to electronic breaches. They do the "Appear in a hurry with an arm full of cake" thing to gain access to a secure building.
SnowToad: Maybe its WAY more powerful because you've never see it on the news
Foxmar320: that man will never walk again
Brok3nGol3m: despite it being an industry term, there are poor reactions to pen testing when you name it
Furvias: Tom Scott did an AMAZING bit where he figured out someones information with 10 minutes of Facebook data
Viewers_Like_You: Maybe by "social engineering" the game means "automotive violence"
LathosTiran: aiden should have "post-it detector 9000" on his phone
comstarcleric: Gggg
aerobeing: Viewers_Like_You lol
screamingpeasant: in a concert. That bag of ice is more valuable than the ticket
tim19862: haha nice Officinalis
Scy_Anide: I mean, those are the references Aiden would make though
ExhaustedElox: It was so great; I got into an out of a hospital when I was a pizza delivery driver with no one stopping me.
jigokuro_temp: Longcat was 2004!
grgriffin3: Aiden is a old man, remember.
Decaped: i thought WD2 was the shitpost.
aerobeing: An RPG game with with social engineering would possibly be interesting.
FerociousPeach: also super useful: a golf shirt with an elevator company logo
wildpeaks: I see Graham ventured on the reddit :D
slazer2au: Officinalis or edit the wikipedia article to make you appear as family.
azureHaights: Not enough colors on those displays to do deep fried memes.
Reecer6: oh yeah, this game is full of memes that were dead before they developed the game.
korvys: Getting into a concert with ice?
cosarprime: something about a guywho ran pup triva?
NathanJay_GA: "It's an older meme but it checks out" is an older meme. But it checks out!
polyglut: Can you try the canned air with automatic doors thing?
Foxmar320: oh this mission
JOZeldenrust: Getting into festivals carrying a length of 16 amp cable, a black shirt, cargo pants and as many lanyards as you can fit around your neck.
orionsrise1: the thing about watch dogs that really bothered me was the fact that the system stayed in place after multiple days of absolute failure, the local government still kept it in place. after 24 hours of bridges going pisswacky and lights causing accidents, even Chicago would have shu that down
SnowToad: GENIUS
jigokuro_temp: wow
adi_pie: Let me tell you about how few questions guards ask you in a hospital if you have a white coat.
underhill33: lrrWOW
wildpeaks: wow
Reecer6: i need to try that.
screamingpeasant: nice
CleverCrumbish: That's some Don Draper ass shit

SnowToad: So can I just walk into the moonbase and start washing the dishes? @LoadingReadyRun

Derkatronic: I mean there's some logic there. 'Why would this guy have washed dishes for 6 hours if he didn't work here?'
DoctorOfBeard: F

Officinalis: F
screamingpeasant: employer: well, he shows up on time

Reecer6: the online in this game is still real cool though

Foxmar320: We were trying to have a moment Warmac!
abaoa_qu: Press F to remember
shurtal: cause if you provide years, you have to assume the user can math
CanvasWolfDoll: ah yes. i remember now. such tragedy. glad i took time to remember.
northos: being invaded?! prepare the giant tree seed...
Rhynerd: Dangit Warmac, we’re trying to remember our niece!
TehAmelie: they wanted it to be sad. heck, try a gravestone with just one date on it
SachielOne: You can turn off invasions in the options.
MarsIsDead: So I just need to walk into a restaurant and start managing people and they will put me on salary?
grgriffin3: Nice. Age 6. Dick Grayson, age 12.
Pl4sm4_Ro4ch_jtv: LUL hacker
wormapotheote: so this is hacker dark souls gta?
Brok3nGol3m: is that guy war-driving a park?
mtvcdm: Welp, goodbye
Foxmar320: lol
orionsrise1: perfectly normal looking car there
aerobeing: Stream sniper?
Jay_Blanc: I read of someone who did that, but had a change of clothes and a folding trolly in the pizza box bag. Then changed into generic-tech worker, to haul the server boxes back out on the trolly. Making sure they looked cumbersome enough that the security guard helped them out the building.
TehAmelie: did you hack the car collision?
grgriffin3: There can't be.
Foxmar320: I hope its not someone watching
Laserbeaks_Fury: Hack his car to make to do a Christine
Derkatronic: The contrast between Grimdark McEdgelord and Hipster Tallhair in W_D2 is pretty jarring
orionsrise1: yupp
SnowToad: Hacker is surprisingly fit for running after a car... I would walk 10 meters and get tired.
aerobeing: Are servers still up?
Scy_Anide: I thought you turned the online component off?
Despoiler98: why does he have an AK47?
orionsrise1: No this is an elimination mission
Despoiler98: HOW does he have that?
Mr_Dirty: Panic?
TehAmelie: i believe AIden has hacked his Wii Fit to be in superhuman shape
aerobeing: orionsrise1, so offline?
grgriffin3: Well that was goddamn stupid.
aerobeing: The idea of this was great, though.
aerobeing: Made me preorder it. :(
Skyboss1996: People still do this?
orionsrise1: No still online
sag3error: Warning, incoming game
aerobeing: The last game I have preordered.
wildpeaks: well that was a great emotional moment of remembrance
mtvcdm: Why did we get a skill point from that
Lynks_9: the thing with dark souls invasions is that they are internally consistent- you are the same character whether you ar invading or not and there is an established narrative that defines it's presence. These fixers aren't that- they are just hamfistedly jammed in
Rhynerd: Because Experience.
Asimech: @TehAmelie So he has hacked it to use a practical metric instead of BMI?
randomino5: are you reeeeally sure tho
Scy_Anide: 3, you had to apply it AND confirm twice

MarsIsDead: She has not changed clothes since
BlandSpice: He figured out he needed the hat for all this rain!
aquinas_0: got to save that model budget somewhere

adi_pie: It's time to stop
aquinas_0: why would she... the fuck
Jay_Blanc: Aiden, so generic that the writers forgot who he was.
Skyboss1996: *Floppy Grind sounds*
Jorge4hg: listen aiden
ContingentCat: oh no
grgriffin3: And you do a GREAT job, Aiden.
ricin: he protec?
Furvias: Until I don't protect

MarsIsDead: Aiden is Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense
TacitusVigil: I mean, his sister is dead, so...too late?
Viewers_Like_You: Because... I've been hacked too!

Tiber727: Because open world games are designed to go on pretty much forever!
frozenphoenix7: I will protect you. I will put cameras in your house to be able to make sure I can see if anything goes wrong.
Mr_Dirty: Are these two game of thrones brother and sister?
Reecer6: honestly the story of this game would be really good they just leaned on aiden being a huge antihero more
azureHaights: Oh, DIDN'T I?
Jorge4hg: i mean kinda
orionsrise1: it would really be better to say, do you really think you're safe?
asddsa28: what did he do
Reecer6: but they really don't at all
wolf2012pack: yes, he DID
JPattemore: But he kinda did.
aerobeing: "No, you didn't. I did." Dun, dun DUNNN
TehAmelie: yeah, i put cameras in your bathroom. it's not weird, we're family!
Despoiler98: god he looks like a psychopath

ContingentCat: for once we left somewhere with the same car we used to get there
TehAmelie: the way you do anything is the way you do everything, right? in Aiden's case, that way is hacking
TacitusVigil: So...I'm beginning to think we're not much of a watch dog on anything. :P
Jay_Blanc: What, haven't you ever seen a Drive Through Graveyard before?
Cw3040: CtOS: It Not Perfect System
Skyboss1996: GEDDIT?
mercsenary7: Watch Dogs. Good universe. I like it a lot. Aiden Pierce. Not so much.
Biomonkey01: I remember playing the start of this game, and dropping it after 3 hours. Watchdogs 2 I played a lot though
Asimech: The game lays it all out and then just changes the subject.
Viewers_Like_You: This game's meaning is like his coat physics: flimsy
Despoiler98: Its almost like NOTHING MATTERS *waves arms around&
ContingentCat: it's so surface level it's frutrating
orionsrise1: oh and takes a big turd 4ight in the middle of its own story? God this company can piss me off sometimes
DoctorOfBeard: if you die in the camera do you die in real life?
TrakoZG: my clip UR has LeeroyJenkins
space_turbulence: thank you guys for being here. hav8ng a very bad evening
Roadhog123: Can we talk about the high security razorwire fence around a mobile tower... with a 2 metre *gap* in the fence?
mercsenary7: are we able to do spoilers?
TacitusVigil: Aiden seems like the type of guy that would hack the elevator to come immediately to him rather than wait the 30 seconds for it to arrive.
Pal_Friendpatine: kaypikeHEART @space_turbulence
countz3r0: HACK THE PLANET
mtvcdm: We do spoil in Talking Sim. It's necessary in ordfer to discuss the game.
korvys: The theme is HACKING IS COOL
wildpeaks: the modern Deus Ex would be a good contrast on a similar theme
mercsenary7: Its a standard revenge/murder story that has a layer of "omg technology. IMPLICATIONS."
Mr_Dirty: watching this just makes me love spiderman more
hd_dabnado: 1337 h3[3R
darthcoercis: when do you meet up with Matthew Lillard and Angelina Jolie?

Aenir798: his coat matched his car lol
hd_dabnado: oofda
space_turbulence: @pal_friendpatine thanks <3
mercsenary7: it tacks on a bit of "who watches the watchmen" type of technology is used to gather all this data
TacitusVigil: We hacked the car...by committing GTA Kappa
randomino5: see how you took that car? freedom
wildpeaks: oh good, free money
Brok3nGol3m: that was his cop-bribing money!
corran__horn: Without the self reference that there are maybe 0 actual
Scy_Anide: This is kind of what Ubisoft does with a lot of their games though. They present themes as though they want to say something about them, and then 9 times out of 10 they don't say anything because "gotta appeal to the widest audience"
Armstrong11139: It's like somebody watched Serial Experiments Lain, and their main takeaway was that "they sure do say 'everything is connected' a whole bunch"
Saintnex: It will allow you to do anything, but the game doesnt seem to care at all about any sort of implication to this
orionsrise1: let me save you a bunch of time then. Aiden mad, gets gun, shoots bad guys, takes phone out, goes to fictional Google headquarters, finds out it was the mayor all along
mercsenary7: on you and is used to predict and influence you and it... doiesnt really go anywhere.
corylus22: So like, social darwinism?
Lynks_9: who keeeps ash in the glovebox? that seems both inconvenient and a recipe for trouble
TehAmelie: that's like, bailout money. that's Gone in 60 seconds preparedness
Officinalis: A good guy wouldn't have $245 in his glovebox...surely.
Derkatronic: W_D2 embraces the 'wired city as a giant playground' a lot more thoroughly and is more fun for it.
wildpeaks: ice cream truck !
Lynks_9: cash*
MadAran87: What does it say about a culture when a popular concept of salvation or fantasy is wholesale collapse and genocide-scale devastation/apocalypse?
corran__horn: apex tier (insert masculine ideals)
mugulord: moral agnostic
mercsenary7: WD2 makes a bit more of a better point about it
mercsenary7: but even then not a lot.
Decaped: this game has less to say than ReadyPlayerOne.
mercsenary7: right that's part of it
TacitusVigil: But...so are we?
tim19862: Alexa? Kappa
mercsenary7: later in the story it talks about "bellweather"
aerobeing: tim19862, Facebook
aquinas_0: its even less moral than Numbers!
tim19862: that too
mercsenary7: which is implied to be the collection of data and the manipulation of such to directly influence the populace.
Viewers_Like_You: The only way to fight big brother is to be a big brother
DoctorOfBeard: it's not like you cold leak all that data and expose everything
Brok3nGol3m: to be fair, when PRISM was uncovered by Snowden, the dialogue wasn't about government over-reach but about leaking secrets
TacitusVigil: I kinda wish Aiden was the villain of the sequel.
Foxmar320: No he doesn't die
Kykiwi: he dosent die i tihnk
grgriffin3: You have a mission in 2 where you meet him.
ExhaustedElox: He does show up on a mission in WD2, though
mercsenary7: aiden makes a cameo in WD2
aerobeing: And google.
ContingentCat: there's so many missed opportunities
adi_pie: No, they do kill Clara though.
mercsenary7: by the time of WD2 he's become this mythical uber hacker
DruthersHaver: man of the people
adi_pie: Because of course they do/
Zanaide: I think he's not the main character because he's as entertaining as a post.
mercsenary7: not really
aquinas_0: @TacitusVigil you'd end up with something painful like Prototype 2 then though
korvys: No, that would mean the game had any sense of Justice
mercsenary7: he's kind of revered
Saintnex: Aiden decides to go full vigilante in WD2 and just goes around like batman
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: of course
Skyboss1996: PISS COAT
grgriffin3: Nah, they hero-worship him.
aerobeing: And whatever China has.
ExhaustedElox: No, he's a hero to the the characters of WD2
orionsrise1: because he has the personality of South park's al gore
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: rip clara
TehAmelie: the end has you dramatically choose to kill a guy or not. because that's a line we have trouble with
brainbosh: "Cosmetic"
banachspacebar: if they killed him in this one I feel like they'd try to portray it as a tragic death
mercsenary7: iirc, Marcus goes "I just helped out Aiden pierce. The Fox himself!"
Foxmar320: It was so good
Rhynerd: Or even a case where the hero has to show people how easily the system can be used for evil and has been used for evil.
Decaped: Ubisoft haven't had an open world game as bad as this since, right? this was after AC3?
TriggerHappy2Pi: Would you mind telling us about the end of the game?
TacitusVigil: @aquinas_0 I was thinking of Prototype, yeah. Except not with all the layers of jackets. :P
Reecer6: oh yeah, that was an important coat in chip and ironicus' playthrough as well
Asimech: Ok, now Graham is driving like I do in games when I'm using a mouse and keyboard.
aquinas_0: LOL
NathanJay_GA: Piss yellow and VERY dirty
CoyoteSans: Adrian Pierce is kind of like The Last of the Steve Era of Video Game Protagonists.
mercsenary7: I believe this is after AC3.
phorrestgaze: Heros/murderhobos
JPattemore: It's like farcry 4, where Ubisoft tries so hard to explicitly say exactly nothing, that it ends up unintentionally endorsing the thing it would seem to try and portray as bad.
mercsenary7: Black Flag comes out soon after I think?
darthcoercis: Ubi has made a lot of open world games since that are equally terrible, just in different ways.
Skyboss1996: Like... running around with Open Carry
Saintnex: @Decaped I mean AC3 really hit the barrel in terms of bad open world, though FC Primal I have heard is also not good
orionsrise1: this coincided with AC blackflag
MostCallMe__Tim: Dear Dr Gramron, would these GTA-like games be improved with first person driving, do you think?
DirgeNovak: This came out after Black Flag
Skyboss1996: I mean, America gets kinda a 40/60 pass.
corpocracy: You can't just kill things and take their stuff with no consequences
Skyboss1996: But the rest of the world is NOT as chill
Cw3040: I mean, every campaign of Cyberpunk 2020 i've been in has the same pitfall: there's no real end-game
DirgeNovak: Black Flag was a PS4 launch title
mercsenary7: there is a kind of fast travel
ExhaustedElox: Yeah, you open hideouts
korvys: Aiden is doing the digital equivalent of walking into every house and rummaging through all everybody's shit
aquinas_0: reduce the scope to walking distance and connect it to a metro
mercsenary7: you fast travel to these containers that you've set up as safehouses?
El_Spectre: First person driving is hard because you can't swivel your head as easily as when actually driving.
mercsenary7: its actually a pretty interesting living concept
CoyoteSans: This is like the Jefferson Starship of video games: it tries to sell itself as railing against the practices of the industry it is clearly the product of.
SnivianMoon: I think this game might be improved by ten raccoons in a trench coat replacing Aiden.
Drakas: like clara your hacker friend is the other hacker from the Merlot job and the one that is leaving the flowers on your nieces grave
FerociousPeach: "I can't let this bystander ID me to the legal authorities. Better murderface him! Aren't I such a good guy, for the people??"
Laserbeaks_Fury: If everything in this city is wired, why do you ever need cash?
Zaraka00: You can take the train too iirc
TacitusVigil: Time to hack this building [starts climbing up side]
mercsenary7: you have to open the CTOS towers though
Foxmar320: lrrFINE
ContingentCat: @SnivianMoon agreed
frozenphoenix7: HERO
aerobeing: SnivianMoon, I agree.
korvys: Aiden the digital murder-hobo
Decaped: Jordi is the best character.
wildpeaks: ah yes, the person that makes us look like a good guy in contrast
Zanaide: Yeah, I did like Jordi.
Reecer6: jordi is very good, appreciate him
Jorge4hg: jordi lrrHEART
Officinalis: In at least the first Read Dead, traveling was often *the time to have an infodump conversation*
Skyboss1996: Lets just brush over that
Brok3nGol3m: Hero of the people!
ExhaustedElox: I do kinda love Jordi
phorrestgaze: Are we the baddies?
mercsenary7: Jordi is actually quite fun character
Mr_Dirty: Why is he not the main character?
azureHaights: STRAIGHT ANSWER, FUCKO.
Saintnex: THIS IS NOT A GOOD REACTION TO PEOPLE BEING HELD HOSTAGE
Banrael: We could be the pizza guy instead?
BlandSpice: See this guy fits the theme way better
korvys: Jordi is great
mercsenary7: like unlike
Jay_Blanc: Why couldn't we play as Jordi?
aquinas_0: oh that would be fun
Scy_Anide: Right? If Jordi was the main character this would just be a GTA V spin-off
mercsenary7: pretty much every other character in WD1 he doesnt really take himself seriously
MarsIsDead: I love this guy... Can we have spin off with this character?
aquinas_0: and unambiguous
Zaraka00: This VA is real good
Reecer6: jordi betrays you at the end of the game as a last-minute twist and there's no real reason for it?
JOZeldenrust: Jordi is a psychopath, but he's both consistent and entertaining.
aerobeing: Jay_Blanc, because plot twist
CleverCrumbish: I feel like Aiden is too dense and boring as a character to realise Jordi is actually just a psychopath
Skyboss1996: FlapFlapFlapFlapFlap
mtvcdm: We deserve that.
Mr_Dirty: turn the fans in coat down?
Zath_: I feel like the game could have been so much better if you played as a bad guy
mercsenary7: contracst this with grimwhiteman Aiden pierce must mutter grimly about grim things
mtvcdm: We deserve to go to jail.
Rhynerd: Coat wants away from these people.
the_number_two2: flappin' in the breeze
ExhaustedElox: lol Cam
tim19862: LUL
Foxmar320: :D
Decaped: Jordi killing you at the end is the canonical ending for this game, in my head.
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: ripping ass
hoktauri: his coat is going to the store
FerociousPeach: Aiden's just passing a massive amount of wind
TrakoZG: pfffffft
wildpeaks: now we can't unsee that
shurtal: Serial Flatulence Offender, Aiden Pearce
darthcoercis: jesus cam
Derkatronic: *sits backward on chair* SO. You're being accused of murder.
aerobeing: Reecer6, he gets better pay and is honest about it. I like the guy for the work ethic. :)
Jorge4hg: hahahaha
Armstrong11139: I can no longer unsee that
Brok3nGol3m: guyjudgeButt fluckSnow
Despoiler98: WHERE DID HE HAVE THAT
SquareDotCube: Chicago, AKA the Wibbly City
Banrael: Man, if that is what that is, he needs to get that looked at
Rhynerd: It’s been lying there.
aerobeing: Reecer6, or not even sure about better pay, actually.
mercsenary7: also the coat is almost like what an edgy 13 year old would think is a cool outfit
Banrael: THe volume of air alone
Rockario: Is there anything to be said about Aiden ignoring the crimes of his associates because of the nature of the larger crimes being committed? Like, "What's breaking into one home compared to a surveillance state?"
TehAmelie: he was not actually looking in the sight when he adjusted it
Laserbeaks_Fury: Doctor Strange's Cloak of Levitation moved less than that
mercsenary7: like its a trench coat. But not
orionsrise1: that has to be this specific game's glitch. I never had the coat glitch
phorrestgaze: he'd fit the playstyle
mercsenary7: so its not terrible.
wildpeaks: he straight out of a GTA
aerobeing: Jordi is great.
Vanderhof: Jordi is a man that enjoys his job.
Viewers_Like_You: He has characteristics, unlike Aiden
Skyboss1996: Neither of you are, but ok
Saintnex: Just to really drive home the point that we are NOT the good guys
Asimech: Aiden, pot, kettle.
the_number_two2: Jordi is actually the main character of this game...
wildpeaks: 13
Seagulyus: hey guys! what sorta dogs are we watching? I hope there is some malamutes :D
Saintnex: despite what UBI and the game might say
Skyboss1996: SUBTLETY
Foxmar320: Stealth
mercsenary7: Saintex: I mean you're good by proxy really.
aerobeing: the_number_two2, Clara for me.
mercsenary7: I mean you kill. Like A LOT of people.
AmoriLinguae: Okay, is it just me or is this game kinda bad at motivating you?
Reecer6: my family (family, family, family...)
the_number_two2: aerobeing I would play that game!
CoyoteSans: Jordi has an actual personality, which stands in direct contrast to Generic White Guy //douchbaggery Aiden Pierce.
Decaped: I've been watching a lot of X-files recently, and this really reminds me of one of their techno-horror episodes.
aerobeing: AmoriLinguae, realism?
Armstrong11139: I mean...somebody already *has* played that against him...so...
TehAmelie: "family" is a four letter word, son" "um"
darthcoercis: so this game is basically "i'm gonna commit all of the crimes to show you that a computer program is bad"?
AmoriLinguae: Like, I'm not invested in this story
Asimech: He's also hitting some "going to betray you" flags.
korvys: No one tries to tell you Jordi is the hero
aerobeing: And he is HONEST about it.
ArkhamArchivist: Jordi is monoblack, and admits it
corpocracy: Which is why GTA "works"
hoktauri: And it's not "amoral" to cover being a dick
ExhaustedElox: Yeah, he's actually aware of the story as it is happening. Aiden just blunders from scene to scene
adi_pie: Aiden feels like that meme image of the guy shooting someone and then asking "How could X do this?"
mercsenary7: Asimech: Its more of "Nothing personal."
phorrestgaze: our coat is getting angrier.
Saintnex: @mercsenary7 I feel like you are good only because the game tries its hardest to make everyone else seem like the literal worse
mercsenary7: But it happens like literalyl at the end of the game
Nepeanotcanada: the back of that coat still going strong LUL
mercsenary7: @Saintnex You're not wrong
Asimech: @mercsenary7 Fair.
Skyboss1996: SQUISH
Jay_Blanc: Can I ask a question. Who fishes in the Chicago drainage canals? Why are these people in this game fishing in the Chicago drainage canals?
Viewers_Like_You: Aiden "Nothing personell kid" Watchdogs
JOZeldenrust: You actually rob them after you "knock them out". Wow.
BlandSpice: He's a weird juxtaposition while Aiden is busy trying to envision himself as a white knight
Jorge4hg: normal crane activity
Jay_Blanc: What do they think they're going to catch?
JPattemore: Jordi understands that he's a bad person, doing terrible things simply because he wants to. He knows we are as well, but we just don't want to admit it to ourselves.
aerobeing: LOL
mercsenary7: I mean compared to sexual slavers, rampant police corruption
Brok3nGol3m: hard to tell how fast you're running with all that fwapping
Lynks_9: @Jay_Blanc future's bleak
mercsenary7: pierce who is otherwise just a thief
mercsenary7: is pretty saintly.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wasn't there a section of Killzone that's like this?
Biomonkey01: Now I want to go bhack and play the second game. Being able to do everything non-lethal with drones from across the street felt so good
ContingentCat: "welp guess the ghosts are at it again"
mercsenary7: Of course then you get into the rampant serial murders and well...
aerobeing: mercsenary7, yes.
the_number_two2: I wish we could switch perspective at least... like even Lego-game esque. Ensoul Jordi, then ensoul Aiden, back and forth
aerobeing: mercsenary7, Deadpool
orionsrise1: there is a crap shot episode in that jacket
chesul: please don't hack at a propane tank...
mercsenary7: yes but Deadpool is funny/fun
Skyboss1996: and everything's on fire
Derkatronic: Seems safe.
Scy_Anide: If Aiden had any character whatsoever this could also be a game about playing off of Jordi until you realize that you are in fact just the bad guy and then turning to stop being the baddie but having to confront your best friend, Jordi, about everything you've done together.
Decaped: the serial murderer in this game is pretty fucked up thing, if i remember. something like the most racist/sexist thing in the game.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Propane and Propane Applications
DoodlestheGreat: "I hack propane and propane accessories..."
chesul: it would turn to a pro-pain tank.
Viewers_Like_You: Hunger: Hacked.
phorrestgaze: dobby?
Cw3040: there's things for remote starting your grill?
mercsenary7: WD2 makes a better argument
aerobeing: mercsenary7, and kills actual bad guys?
TehAmelie: will you get back to this game in the future by the way? i'd like to see more of this
BlandSpice: That's a noise?
Rhynerd: @scy_anide I’d love that storg.
aerobeing: No.
Foxmar320: That doesn't sound normal
Skyboss1996: BZZZZT
Kykiwi: um
wildpeaks: doesn't seem normal
aerobeing: Not normal.
mercsenary7: I dont think so?
Asimech: There's an actual Internet Everywhere oven in existence. It's 300 USD.
orionsrise1: character needs to be silent, jacket glitching gives character away
mercsenary7: wait its gone
heronblademaster: not normal
ExhaustedElox: That's not good...
Theycallmejokke: ouch
Skyboss1996: Well, it's gone now
ContingentCat: I was going to say is that they game?
Cinntoastmin: That
grgriffin3: This seems off.
Cinntoastmin: mawp
Biomonkey01: wtf?
TacitusVigil: Time to hack the audio.
Mr_Dirty: panic?
BlandSpice: Well that's from the game?
wildpeaks: maybe the coat is protesting louder
mercsenary7: you're out of range
mtvcdm: That doesn't sound like the game.
FinalShowFilms: That sounds like a headphone jack is buzzing
azureHaights: Hi budy.
mercsenary7: reach the door
Scy_Anide: That's definitely not normal
jonasjonIV: it is unpleasant
DiscordianTokkan: Is it comms jamming?
Foxmar320: That sounds like the game is glitching out
Derkatronic: lol hi there
Jorge4hg: hi
Lynks_9: "hey boss, should we link these industrial shipping cranes up to ctOS?" "sure, what's the worst that can happen with autonomous heavy machinery linked to the internet of things?"
DoctorOfBeard: kiss!
Theycallmejokke: maybe the moonbase is getting hacked
aerobeing: DiscordianTokkan, no. This is not the game.
Scy_Anide: Game audio cut out now too
orionsrise1: nope you have also the noise glitch
Skyboss1996: Nope, now the audio is gone
Aenir798: Cam muted the audio to spare us guys
mtvcdm: We have no game audio.
Skyboss1996: Oooh
Jorge4hg: no game audio
Fugi: chat pls lol
mercsenary7: and now its back
Jorge4hg: thanks cam
BlandSpice: That noise did not seem mixed correctly to be intentional
aerobeing: I'm pretty sure I don't remember that being in the game.
NathanJay_GA: I dont know about that. I think that might have been a bug
Kykiwi: chat delay opop
ContingentCat: thanks Cam that was a bad sound
coelopteryx: our oven has a thing where you can set it to turn on at a certain hour/after a certain offset of hours. i'm not sure what the heck use it is.
TheManaLeek: They have advanced muting technology, it can be turned on and off at will
mercsenary7: yeah! beat that man, give him head trauma for days
Reecer6: i think the game does a bit more with interface screw later on
Rhynerd: Stuff like that is why I prefer visual interference over audio interference when it comes to jamming and whatnot.
Viewers_Like_You: That cover? Hacked.
Oatway_: making a batch of the shortbread recipe you shared last year G
jigokuro_temp: Sticky Cover: bad in beds, bad in games.
azureHaights: MGS5PP didn't have these levels of sticky cover
wildpeaks: !advice
LRRbot: Go in from behind!
korvys: Jordi is played by Aaron Douglas, who played Galen Tyrol on Battlestar Galactica. Is that a character you remember, Cameron?
Lynks_9: @coelopteryx you can prepare your dinner to be ready when you get home
Furvias: Cam I am now stuck with the phrase "Visual Farting"
wildpeaks: that's the plan, lrrbot
Decaped: I came in late, did we see any of the single shot camera stories? like the porno guy?
orionsrise1: around chapter 7 there will be an explosion that keeps going off
AmoriLinguae: @coelopteryx it's for jewish people who follow a strict interpretation of what you can and cannot do on the sabbath
Skyboss1996: Deagle
wildpeaks: a nerdcave
DoodlestheGreat: Like... "So what were they thinking?" or even "So what, WERE they thinking?" :tf:
Stoffern: Doesn't Clara die far too soon, though?
mercsenary7: Its a hidden CTOS station in like an abandoned island
Foxmar320: oh yeah this
Aenir798: H Y P O C R I S Y
Rockario: Making bad noises on purpose always buggs me a little bit. I get that they're going for something but that doesn't make it less annoying. See also: tinnitus sounds after explosions, not super cool for someone who's ears ring
zeraxilim: Oh my god
Foxmar320: Threatening the mans family.
the_number_two2: @Decaped we go "sexually attracted to musical instuments"
TehAmelie: Dear Dr Cameron, i want to thank you for putting "so what?" in my rhetorical dictionary. it's been a great help in many a hostile political debate
azureHaights: A lotta lindens.
grgriffin3: Our hero!
mtvcdm: This is what good guys do
wildpeaks: good guy Aiden
darthcoercis: Aiden is a trash gremlin.
Silver__Knight_: Our. Hero.
tim19862: hippo Crit! lrrBEEJ
SnivianMoon: Welp. I didn't think he could be a bigger piece of garbage. But there it is.
Jorge4hg: Our hero is a good guy
the_number_two2: Hero!
TacitusVigil: So...our motivation is that our family was threatened...and we threaten other people's families. Great.
frozenphoenix7: HERO.
mercsenary7: Aiden is a grim man making grim decisions
orionsrise1: it was Ubisoft
mercsenary7: that's literally his character
mercsenary7: see
Reecer6: once again this man is supposed to be a good hero you root for
frozenphoenix7: i would!
Silver__Knight_: There is no war in Ba Sing Se. Aiden is a good person.
mercsenary7: "I wouldnt know where to begin."
aerobeing: "My parents are dead!"
mercsenary7: like my dude.
darthcoercis: that's the best question an npc ever asked of a player "what the fuck is wrong with you"

Dandinstorm12: hello friends
Biomonkey01: Hard Men Making Hard Decisions While Being Hard
Cw3040: high tech low life man
ReydienOnline: the ends justify the means
the_number_two2: mercsenery7 Aiden is Grimdark!TM
FerociousPeach: that's first honest statement he's made all stream
Viewers_Like_You: You'll pay for character development, but you'll only need THE EDGE
Saintnex: Its worth mentioning in this series of missions, Aiden also MANIPULATES a family member to kill Angelo
frozenphoenix7: "I wouldn't know where to begin." I would. I very much world.
Dandinstorm12: lrrSPOT
frozenphoenix7: would*
mercsenary7: I wouldnt say the grimdark
wildpeaks: such is life in the tech
I_Am_Clockwork: Some head writer somewhere said "Gimme edgy. no Edgier. no edgier"
aerobeing: Viewers_Like_You, what is that edge referencing?
mercsenary7: more of a grimdim? Grimedge?
Decaped: a lot of the social commentary is in the side stuff, but still not very good. They didn't really make the vigilante story work as a main driving, because the main character isn't compelling.
BlandSpice: @Mr_Dirty he totally has fingerless gloves doesn't he?
wildpeaks: positive and negative example have things to teach
TehAmelie: see advocates of certain ideologies "really" hate having to develop their thoughts beyond vague insinuations
mercsenary7: like the world isnt that bad.
Reecer6: mediocre garbotrash
Lynks_9: "I've gotta protect my family by establishing a habit of me going after other people's families"
the_number_two2: Grimdank?
mercsenary7: fastforward to WD2 and its way way better compared
the_number_two2: Grimshade?
corpocracy: More video games need actual writers
mercsenary7: grimdim.
CoyoteSans: ludonarrtive dissonance!
mercsenary7: tbf aiden doesnt actually follow through
Dandinstorm12: many many times
Foxmar320: So many this game
mercsenary7: its more like he just uses those threats?
Brok3nGol3m: the difference writing makes?

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, niivvy! (Today's storm count: 77)
FerociousPeach: i get the impression that the writer(s) and the content designers were not working on the same story
I_Am_Clockwork: and like, this sort of disconnect can work, if you make it the core theme. A story about someone struggling to deal with themsleves as an amoral antivilan and what that means would be fine.
mercsenary7: I mean dont get me wrong, WD2 isnt perfect.
TehAmelie: would it have been better to limit the sandboxing and railroad the player into being a nominally good vigilante?
Too_Many_Knives: Goodnight, LRR
ReydienOnline: an example of Ludonarrative Dissonance, then?
mercsenary7: but on the topic of the game allowing you to be a good character as the narrative describes
MarsIsDead: Trumps Twitter account?
aerobeing: Deadpool shoots people.
JPattemore: So having watched this game, it seems as if it essentially is a tacit endorsement that crimes against others is acceptable as long as those committing the crimes can actually get away from them. It tries hard not to have a commentary on the terrible actions performed by the protagonist, that it's silence is effectively an endorsement of those actions.
mercsenary7: you could literally run WD2 nonlethally
mercsenary7: with the taser.
mtvcdm: You don't get the choice to not do it. It's a cutscene.
ContingentCat: no Batman drops people off buildings killing them that way instead
wolf2012pack: outside of the DCCU murderverse
TheyCallMeK: Makes me think of bio shock infinite and how Elisabeth is shocked at the first death then never again
TacitusVigil: Batman also doesn't do the Gritty Voice when he's just Bruce Wayne Kappa
CoyoteSans: @ReydienOnline Chris Franklin's video tearing Aiden's character apart is one of his best.
mercsenary7: @TehAmelie it might have been better
mercsenary7: to drop the entire murder revenge plot
aerobeing: ContingentCat, Batman doesn't kill people, gravity kills people. :)
mercsenary7: and have aiden be a private detective
Skyboss1996: The good thing about WD? Spider Tank
mercsenary7: or literally some =guy stumbling on a mystery
TehAmelie: i mean it couldn't be worse
Foxmar320: The pvp system is so bad
niivvy: mangoPog social commentary
Viewers_Like_You: What if Black Mirror, but pointless?
Decaped: so the last season of black mirror?
ArkhamArchivist: So all of black mirror?
Rockario: And we didn't even get to a point of being told "Now go invadde other player's worlds and be a ddangerous predator"
mercsenary7: commentary: It takes a step up to a line to make a point but doesnt actually cross it
BrindleBoar: technology am play gods!
CoyoteSans: It's commentary by people with no courage to actually make a stand about anything at all.
Skyboss1996: Yes and?
Pal_Friendpatine: Well even the first trailer we saw of this game was different than what the game was when we finally got to play it. Something clearly changed along the way.
wildpeaks: "and also signup for uplay"
Dandinstorm12: ^^
aerobeing: Just food for thought.
AmoriLinguae: this wasn't news in 2014
Saintnex: There could be a lot of social commentary in this game, from both the tech connection and Aiden as an amoral character, but the game never touches it
TacitusVigil: "So you want to stop this?" "Oh god no, I want to take advantage of it!"
mercsenary7: A later point is that you are your data and enough data allows for the "bellweather" system to manipulate your decision
ContingentCat: it's like when people declare something a social construct and think that ends an argument
CleverCrumbish: It's a "subversive" commentary made by the people the commentary is ABOUT
mercsenary7: decisions*
darthcoercis: is Aiden a terminator?

aerobeing: Pal_Friendpatine, I would love to play the actual trailer based game. (
Skyboss1996: that was, at best, a frozen take
TehAmelie: i wonder if the city that tries to pull a surveillance state like this would give citizens free smartphones
mercsenary7: but that's still very much a "Okay. And?"
mtvcdm: Like, I could go find a Facebook headline right now.
Brok3nGol3m: now THAT's an afternoon!
corpocracy: We have people who open accounts at the bank who refuse to get debit cards or online banking so they don't get "hacked"
MrTheWalrus: It's not like we're lacking stories about those themes.
Reecer6: it's very much "we live in a society"
CoyoteSans: I looked at a video from, like, xmas 1999 a while ago, and my step-granddad was hand-wrining about the coming age of rfid-chip tracking humans
aerobeing: TehAmelie, doesn't have to. Just has to make it cool. IRL
tim19862: there is, but not like watch dogs shows
mercsenary7: "Hey I know you're on a revenge journey, but technology is collecting data on you and can manipulate you. Here are examples. And this is a bad thing."
ArkhamArchivist: By the way, sign up for Uplay
Foxmar320: By threatening other peoples families
ArkhamArchivist: no reason
Dandinstorm12: be better at being a monster than everyone else
Skyboss1996: Be that man! Because if you're that guy, it cant happen to you!
aerobeing: Well, it kind of shows that he could not protect his family.
ContingentCat: and "that guy is the hero"
northos: I wanna be the guy!
Mr_Dirty: there is a threat to your privacy by signing up to programs and sharing you personal data. Remember to sign up to Uplay!
Jorge4hg: THE guy
mercsenary7: and that's WD1 in a nutshell
Dandinstorm12: Logical conclusion
InfinityToPlanck: one of my favorite pieces of ancient text is a summarian tablet complaining about kids these days. It was also inexplicably a practice tablet for said kids
TehAmelie: i wonder if, if this game had been made 3000 years ago, it would have been about the dangers of the written word
chesul: can't beat them, so join them?
CoyoteSans: Bender does not endorse the COOOOOL crime of robbery!
Viewers_Like_You: It's a watch_dog eat watch_dog world out there
TacitusVigil: So...we need a Saints Row version of Watch Dogs?
korvys: If you speed in Mafia 1, you get a speeding ticket.
aerobeing: Sleeping Dogs.
CleverCrumbish: @TehAmelie I really want to see a video game made by a society that doesn't have writing
tim19862: you could be a bus driver, following laws with gta mods :)
mercsenary7: @TacitusVigil "I prefer the term puckish rogue."
Fugi: If you don't use the power of technology to get ahead then you're letting others use it against you
Reecer6: I mean, that's Watch_Dogs 2, right?
randomino5: have you ever tried to obey traffic laws in GTA? it's actually physically difficult
Despoiler98: They're a supervillian
TacitusVigil: @mercsenary7 :D
NexVesica: Your character in Saints Row is a cartoon
mercsenary7: @Reecer6: Its closer
SquareDotCube: oh man, can we play Saints Row 2 on Talking Sim?
hoktauri: I don't see Watch Dogs flying out of an alien space ship
Skyboss1996: What if it was... Fun?
Skyboss1996: NAAAH
Scy_Anide: If I remember right, in Driver: San Francisco, as you play a cop, pedestrians actually dive out of the way of your car.
mercsenary7: I mean WD2 still has the narrative that your protag and friends are good people
FinalShowFilms: Seconded: Saints Row 2 for Talking Sim plz
TehAmelie: i really like SR4 where you're the president of the United States, with superpowers
Foxmar320: I miss the Saints games
CleverCrumbish: Basically speaking: On site hacking is done better by Quadrilateral Cowboy, and EVERYTHING else in this game is done better by GTA
mercsenary7: like you can do a nonlethal with the taser gun
randomino5: Saints Row 2 vs Saints Row 3, sound off
aerobeing: randomino5, I would love some blinkers and ability to do a bus route and cabs online.
corpocracy: Yeah, I mean Saints Row and Just Cause are basically cartoons
DirgeNovak: Yes please Saints Row 2 Talking Sim please
mercsenary7: but you also gun down hundreds of guards with a not-AK that also hacks their bank accounts
orionsrise1: it's more of a question of fighting a system with its limitations. freedoms are a dirty thing to have and to hold
aClonedPickle: Saints Row 1 had some moments, don't sell it short :v
mercsenary7: can also*
Foxmar320: Saints 2 was my first one
Foxmar320: Was a lot of fun
Skyboss1996: It worked
CleverCrumbish: SR2 is great
aerobeing: The Coma made the person remember language they never knew.
CleverCrumbish: TERRIBLY programmed, but great
Derkatronic: And you mention 'not talking much for awhile' way later in the series
hoktauri: SR4 is my favorite
Armstrong11139: Saints Row 2: I Lived Bitch
Despoiler98: ALIENS
Derkatronic: No thats 4
Foxmar320: Thats 4
ReydienOnline: no, that's Saints row 4 is the Matrix one

CleverCrumbish: No that's SR4
aerobeing: I think that's 4.
mtvcdm: 4 was the matrix.
jonasjonIV: Only played SR3. Crazy
mtvcdm: 4 was the one with the dubstep gun.
CleverCrumbish: SR3 is the only video game ever to have a good ending
mercsenary7: we'll bang okay?
Oatway_: Saints Row 2 has the very best justification for a changing protagonist model. "Hey boss, you do something to your hair?"
swaggytaco: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 3:00:11.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: SR3 on TalkSim Plz?
Skyboss1996: Mmmmmyeah ok

korvys: Also, the one where you go to Hell
TehAmelie: now i want an open world James T Kirk simulator
korvys: You ARE working, G
gelatosquid: Saints Row 3 was the best one
Foxmar320: I love the interactions for banging each crew member. Its amazinf
CleverCrumbish: SR3 also has the weird duality of wrestling being real, but also explicitly confirming the montreal screwjob happened
ArkhamArchivist: I Love Saint's Row 1-2
raaabr: And now I re-watch the VOD afterwards

mercsenary7: do you want me to go find it?
Foxmar320: No no thats fine just email Graham about it lol
Type_One___: bye everybody!
RvLeshrac: Graham: Just grab an emulator, a pen, and the Kusogrande playlist.
TehAmelie: i have suggested a couple of real solid W+P numbers in the past but maybe they've fallen between the chairs and i should try again
Juliamon: TehAmelie Also possible they were unable to get the games to run. That seems to happen... often
TehAmelie: i mean, just take the words "VHS claymation" and say that's not something Watch + Play needs
Foxmar320: Remember watchandplay @ loadingreadyrun.com
Foxmar320: Email G your game suggestions for W+P
mercsenary7: Found it
mercsenary7: hahaha
mercsenary7: AHAHAHAHAHA
Foxmar320: oh no lol
TehAmelie: i suppose i should try that one for myself and see that it runs
coelopteryx: i think i saw someone speedrunning something very w+p-esque recently but i forgot the name of the game... or no wait!! i remembered the name of the game. now to decide if i'm bold enough to actually suggest it
coelopteryx: got a wicked case of the "someone else'll suggest it eventually"
RvLeshrac: W+P did come up at least once during Kusogrande.
coelopteryx: "or not, and that's fine too"
TehAmelie: go ahead, babe. i get a feeling the submission pile is growing thin
TehAmelie: sorry, i should say babe/dude probably. i'm a little drunk.
coelopteryx: hm hmhm. thin pile bolsters boldness
AmoriLinguae: my 'hidden' folder in steam is now useful (potentially)
