Toshar: ive been wanting to see this game played. ive heard not so good things about it which is sad since Valkyria Cronicles has been an interesting series
Twinklebees: This one is quite similar to the first one in a lot of ways
TXC2: is also covers stuff like PTSD and Concentration camps, so you may want to skip this one

Mysticman89: does that have a meaning behind it, or is it just hard to pronouncce?
RebelliousUno: interesting I would have said Sigh-Up-Wee-Kway
Thane1607: !help
JollyGee29: I played a bit of the first one of these games. It was pretty fun, but I got frustrated with a mission and kinda forgot about it.
syupweque: Just a word my brother made up
JollyGee29: Didn't know there was a 2 or 3 until 4 came out
Earthenone: 2 and 3 were japan only
RebelliousUno: I own one of these
JollyGee29: That makes sense
syupweque: Not saying you should. It's funny; people's attempts
RebelliousUno: Yes I own VC1
cuttlefishman: Yes, og Valkyria Chronicles was in 2009
TXC2: so this Valkyria chronicles 4, 2 in America ?
Earthenone: @TXC2 yup :P
Twinklebees: Essentially yes, TXC2 :P
BishopSansPants: The first LRR I ever watched was the Valkyria Chronicles Unskippable!
cuttlefishman: if my computer screen is wafting
Earthenone: @BishopSansPants thats awesome
Nereidum: No, VC2 came out here as well. It was for PSP, though.
Freshly_Toasted: Black Friday in the UK? I never knew people were still trying to make that a thing
SenseAmidstMadness: That writer's slow descent into madness
EvilBadman: @Freshly_Toasted Commercialism will never die
TXC2: Freshly_Toasted it's 'cause some of companies are American owned
Sarah_Serinde: Yeah Black Friday has firmly become a thing in Canada as well, despite it just being a random Friday for us
Sertion: Final post is just "Games will be sold!?"
Freshly_Toasted: I just keep thinking back to that video of journalists filming the masses only to for 1 guy to come inside and another to turn away because of the cameras
Mysticman89: oh you've got the deccals. I don't know what those are, but glad you're going for the full dlc experience

cuttlefishman: Are... are they drifting a tank?
thomturtle: Yesterday was crazy. o.o
Saunabath: Anime armies are always so very relaxed about uniform and dress code, and somehow it never causes problems
Zyme86: I liked the stylized PzIII more than the stylized M4 tank design
cuttlefishman: How are they drifting a tank?
atlas624: Love this series, it doesn't get enough love
Zyme86: >>>>>>>>
TreeGamer35: tank drift... Yup
Sarah_Serinde: !quote 5648
LRRbot: Quote #5648: "Our chat has so many little arrows in it, it looks like someone has forwarded us an email." —Paul [2018-12-26]
atlas624: @Saunabath To be entirely fair, they actually have a reason for Riley's uniform
samuraitiger19: Another Paul and empty chair stream?
margieargie: Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: Re:
Earthenone: 2 mostly
Twinklebees: Zyme86: Yeah, though the VC tanks always have a bit of a mishmash feel to them
RebelliousUno: Man watching through the twitch app really messes with the audio
Saunabath: @atlas624 Does she breath through her skin?
CobaltShurikenReborn: haha now im the special one, i dont have the arrow!
TXC2: ok who in chat ISN'T subbed right now ? :P
cuttlefishman: WW2, with the noted land battleships
red_shoes_jeff: How much did I miss?
Earthenone: just the into cutscene
atlas624: @Saunabath No, this is actually believable and won't make you ashamed of your words and deeds
ZachtlyAsIntended: You know what needs to be in a videogame? WORLD WAR ALL THE WARS!!!
TreeGamer35: someday i will play through one of these games
LaughingViewer: Yes, all the best and funnest parts of both wars!
Zyme86: The first one was basically the invasion of poland, but the evil empire was russia invading the pluckly little german (cause protagonist was using a Panzer III)
atlas624: You should, VC4 is really good
Thane1607: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 10:17 AM
RebelliousUno: It has some...problematic parts in it as well though
RebelliousUno: at least the first one did
JollyGee29: My secret tech for the first game was to use a controller for everything but the aiming
VoidByAnyOtherName: cutscenes must maintain maximum anime
thomturtle: Paul, you are not an idiot. :P
TXC2: RebelliousUno I heard it had stuff on the camps
CanvasWolfDoll: wait, the game i suggested got picked? what?
atlas624: @Zyme86 Gallia is Not!The Low Countries, this is more Not!Operation Barbarossa but its the Allies invading the Evil RussianGermans
Rhynerd: @CanvasWolfDoll congrats!
TXC2: CanvasWolfDoll congratulations
Mr_Migs: had to be on the line didnt it for volume
TheOldBadger: It's effectively a third person shooter, so whatever you use for that I guess
red_shoes_jeff: Ah yes, one of the few games where "Tank Controls" is ENTIRELY literal.
Earthenone: i would, but i am a monster who likes controlers for thirs person shooters
cuttlefishman: I wonder how hardware accelarated movement works with a trackball

EvilBadman: The chairs aren't even talking to each other. i wonder what the fight was.
Rhynerd: oh Paul's back
ZachtlyAsIntended: I don't know what's' up with all the caps today, I'm sorry.

LRRbot: Executing command.
ZachtlyAsIntended: @thomturtle or the doctor.
Hingadora: lrrSPOOP
Toshar: it cominf from....INSIDE THE MOONBASE
samuraitiger19: The laughatron has found the crew! It kill them all!
atlas624: I hope they fixed the framerate issue this game has for the PC release. Higher framerates make interception fire a lot more dangerous
thomturtle: I mean, both. Something terrible is there, and the Doctor is there.
Sertion: This is the best Japanese developed console game port settings menu I have ever seen
thomturtle: And sometimes everybody lives, and sometimes everybody dies.
Sarah_Serinde: Good ol' anykey
thomturtle: See, something terrible.
cuttlefishman: Seems a bit late to enlist
BellaDante__: no James today?
ZachtlyAsIntended: about tree fiddy?
cuttlefishman: James has been replaced by Chair
Freshly_Toasted: 3 lines, 3 cliches, I am oiled and ready
cuttlefishman: superior cohost
BellaDante__: ah I see
cuttlefishman: dang sons, angiosperms
RebelliousUno: yet
BishopSansPants: It's just a very over-wrought metaphor for love, I'm sure.
TXC2: here in scenic not Holland
thomturtle: @Freshly_Toasted Oiled and ready for what? O.o are you a baking pan?
cuttlefishman: no, don't show us boring humans and war material, focus back on the angiosperms
RebelliousUno: Maybe the tank was built there
BellaDante__: that is a cool tank
RebelliousUno: or it was airlifted in
Mysticman89: maybe the tank can fly
Earthenone: maybe it was droped from the sky
TXC2: it's a HOVER tank Paul Kappa
UnspokenKibbles: Is the sound centered a little bit to the right for anyone else?
Kazman20a: just really tough flowers
Freshly_Toasted: @thomturtle don't you butter your toast?
Rhynerd: Reinforced flowers
Earthenone: lrrSPOT
BellaDante__: dog!
manfred909: lrrSPOT
Sarah_Serinde: Somewhere in this field is a spot where a bunch of turf was pulled up and moved over to replace the bits the tank tore up
TheFaceofCho: lrrSPOT
TXC2: I'd die for that dog
RebelliousUno: Cute dog in the hat is actually the player
Admiralmatt: lrrSPOT lrrSPOT
Riandisa: Pretty much
thomturtle: @Freshly_Toasted Oh ho ho.
CanvasWolfDoll: yeah. unfortunately rags doesn't get much play.
Freshly_Toasted: Dog is myad
azureHaights: I remember this scene from Goldeneye!
TXC2: it was nap time
cuttlefishman: These are thicc flowers
ritchards: Squaddy?
Rhynerd: to not get notcied by the enemy
atlas624: The amazing pop up Edinburgh army
Pteraspidomorphi: Squatty
Earthenone: flower cammo
CanvasWolfDoll: sometimes you just need a nap, paul.
atlas624: Squad E
UnspokenKibbles: The studio sound in particular seems centered a little to the right.
Rhynerd: except for the tank
Zath_: Where is his inkwell?
thomturtle: Pretty boy soldiers? o.o
red_shoes_jeff: Okay, but why shoulder map?
RebelliousUno: Just play Ibiza at them?
Pteraspidomorphi: Does this have a japanese voices option?
TXC2: thomturtle it's an anime, it's par for the course
Metric_Furlong: ?codefall
thomturtle: Do the Vanga Boys have a bus?

atlas624: The shoulder map is so you don't drop it in the footwell of your Not!Sherman
RebelliousUno: Flowers behind it are fine
Freshly_Toasted: Blue electric flanges for... extra speed!
RebelliousUno: it's a very careful tank
Sarah_Serinde: These are some impressive plants
Zyme86: The M4 was a petrol tank
SaiyaOrigaia: tank resistant flowers
Admiralmatt: ?codefall
Pump19: Could not find any unclaimed codes. Visit to add new entries.
Rhynerd: So, whoever said really tough flowers was right
RebelliousUno: I keep thinking he says Squadie
frnknstn: The spirit of ANIME has BLESSED this TANK
cuttlefishman: Has Vangabus been danced to during DB?
thomturtle: I think you're everybody.
cuttlefishman: I don't remember it
Ukon_vasara: shelling the flowers made fields of confetti, rather festive for a war
Earthenone: i assume we are a a dog in a hat,
Saunabath: "You know what would have been good for our squad? More tanks!!"
TXC2: so is this more X-com or advance wars?
RebelliousUno: The guy on Bond didn't do well when he thought he was invincible
azureHaights: Squad Ala, we're off!
RebelliousUno: I really need to finish VC1
Rhynerd: more X-Com
samuraitiger19: It's goes from strategy to 3rd person
TXC2: azureHaights :D
CanvasWolfDoll: amazingly, i'm a few chapters in, and raz has not yet died! but i really wish he would.

Earthenone: the training might have happened in the 3 previous games lrrBEEJ
cuttlefishman: Good name @UnspokenKibbles

ZachtlyAsIntended: War...War never changes. Nor do the flowers. Flowers never yield.
RebelliousUno: I need to go make food bbl8r folks
Rhynerd: Actually, I'd probably best compare this to the tabletop game Infinity

RoseBitter: Good morning, chat
TXC2: RebelliousUno see you soon
TXC2: hello RoseBitter wecome
Rhynerd: Because I compared Infinity to Xcom except you spend orders to make whoever you want go in whatever order you want (including one person going twice or thrice or...) and everybody is allowed to react to what everyone else is doing.
Twinklebees: Command is a special action that's unlocked later.
Freshly_Toasted: Anime tank xcom?
Rhynerd: Thinking about it, has anyone here played Infinity or is it just me that one time?

Aenir798: I just got here, where is the famous Youtuber?
BellaDante__: yeah you can, they will just have less AP
Twinklebees: You can go multiple, but you won't be able to move them as far with each successive action
cuttlefishman: Replaced by even more famous chair
Freshly_Toasted: I thought lrrbot was being weirdly passive aggressive before I looked at the name
Earthenone: famous youtuber is late
TXC2: Aenir798 what are you talking about, chair is right there KAppa
CanvasWolfDoll: the red x's are bustable barriers. black are unbustable.
atlas624: @Aenir798 Get a load of this guy, pretending he's never heard of Chair
TreeGamer35: mgs5 is yet another game for my need to finish list...
CanvasWolfDoll: have to use an explosive to break them, though.
TreeGamer35: and to make that list worse i just started monster Hunter world
TXC2: TreeGamer35 I really want Graham to finnish that game, I want to know what he thinks of the ending
theneatestburrito: lrrHERE
CanvasWolfDoll: oddly enough, i got into this series because of the unskippable episode of the first one. it's kinda anime (which i like) but still a super fun series.

margieargie: lrrHERE
EvilBadman: TXC2 "what ending" ok, cool got that joke out.
TreeGamer35: i would watch graham play through it for sure @txc2
Earthenone: that tip would have been nice before this action :)
OmnipotentTrevor: TXC2: Unfortunately, with the exception of Adam, LRL doesn't have any more long play show types that let them finish games
TXC2: EvilBadman ok the twist then
TXC2: OmnipotentTrevor yeah I know
OmnipotentTrevor: Well, Adam and now Lets Kiss
Rhynerd: Tank time?
Pedantically: And Let's Nope usually plays all the way through games.
EvilBadman: TXC2 I rather enjoyed MGSV, but had to hit the softball.
Freshly_Toasted: Except ozmafia is finally over
TXC2: Now kiss doesn't finish games, the games finish Kathleen Kappa
Zyme86: Be OFFENSIVE B E Ofensive
TXC2: EvilBadman fair enough
Earthenone: the icons represent classes yeah
azureHaights: "Let's be offensive! Our opening act will be one Mr. Ricky Gervais..."
Rhynerd: that's the scout symbol, right?
EvilBadman: Scouts are the "binoculars"
Laogeodritt: Ah, yes, the super slow Valkyria Chronicles tutorials. =V Or maybe I've just restarted the first game with new players enough to get annoyed with it now
CanvasWolfDoll: maybe lrr should consider a longplay show with rotating cast? call it the trudge, schedule someone to do a game with a second to fill in with their own.

Freshly_Toasted: I don't get to use that word enough
OmnipotentTrevor: GPLP was also good for that
ContingentCat: foiled by a knee high fence
Sarah_Serinde: The thing about LRR's stream schedule is that a specific show only happens once a week, which makes full-game playthroughs really slow
Sarah_Serinde: But I agree I liked watching people play through full games sometimes
Earthenone: you have 2 more chances
theneatestburrito: We wouldn't want anyone to hurt themselves clambering over obstacles.
Twinklebees: Earthenone: Kai only has 3 ammo, I think
TXC2: yeah, like didn't beej take something like 3 months to finish that Peach DS game?
JollyGee29: @Rhynerd Oh, I think I remember that from the first one now. That's convenient
ContingentCat: firing back? how rude
Freshly_Toasted: I can imagine paul screaming across the battlefield "Hey it's not your turn, buddy!"

CanvasWolfDoll: dog's name is ragnarok. or rags.
morgoth_bauglyr: its a not quite sherman
thomturtle: Tanks, the freshmaker.
TXC2: it looks like a Sherman built from two other Shermans
CanvasWolfDoll: to be fair, it's an interwar setting. the current year's somewhere in the 30s.

Earthenone: are. tanks not 2 cp in 4? neat
morgoth_bauglyr: you get 3 cp (i think) and 1 per character with a cp icon
brainbosh: The United States of Winos?
Twinklebees: Yeah, only one CP in 4, Earthenone. It's a nice change
atlas624: @morgoth_bauglyr I love how the Not!UK is called Edinburgh. Like the capital of Scotland Edinburgh. Its super weird, like calling the Not!US New York or something
Rhynerd: What do they make these fences out of?
IncredibleFrown: uh if you shoot the radiator you can push some chip damage, and small arms units tend to have grenades that'll bite
sorinplaneswalker just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. sorinplaneswalker subscribed for 5 months in a row!
sorinplaneswalker: Strongest wooden fence ever!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, sorinplaneswalker! (Today's storm count: 15)
Rhynerd: Ragnite is a super fuel of this setting.
Earthenone: fences are made of reinforced plot
H1Lari0us: hello paul and chair!
Nereidum: You get 1 extra CP for each leader you have deployed. Leaders have the CP icon on the top-left of their portraits. I think the base amount you get per turn just depends on the mission.
TXC2: the fence is made of a fruit stand Kappa
brainbosh: I would assume the tank barricades would stop you, not the wooden fence.
Twinklebees: The tank's literal glowing weak spot is on the back
azureHaights: You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow... that tank up
TXC2: REAL inside LRRball joke I just made there
CanvasWolfDoll: weakspot's on the back.
Rhynerd: used in tanks, medical supplies, combat-grade explosives, and the Valkyrias can use ragnite stuff for literal magic.
atlas624: You joke, there are indestructible fruit stands on a later map
TXC2: Really? wow
brainbosh: Broadside not a good position to open to the enemy. :P
atlas624: Yeah, its actually a really funny mission and I hope we get to it this stream
Rhynerd: wait 'till you see the anti-tank infantry
IncredibleFrown: dumping all your cp into one unit tends to have diminishing returns but if shooting three times is what you want it'll do that
TXC2: Remindes me of tank on tank fights in WH40K
CanvasWolfDoll: @Rhynerd never liked lancers much myself. annoying enemies, tedious to use.
Zyme86: TOS! language
atlas624: Tends to be the best course of action against tanks. Lancers aren't the best investment IMO
red_shoes_jeff: They didn't stand a chance against the flowers!
Rhynerd: More in that I'm looking forward to the commentary on the lancers
Earthenone: so, you care about flowers but not the people you just murdered?
CanvasWolfDoll: that's fair.
atlas624: The softest tank boys, the rudest shocktroopers, the best butt in the army - squad e really is a motley crew of misfits
TXC2: so Raz is the Villan right?
Psychic_Ketchup: Claude seems to be the protagonist of a different JRPG
Saunabath: Anime army officers; send dozens of soldiers to their deaths, get PTSD over trumbled flowers
BellaDante__: the flowers did nothing wrong, but the imps can fuck off
CanvasWolfDoll: i'm glad paul also doesn't like raz's insubordination. i feel vindicated.
theneatestburrito: Raz is the villain.
Nereidum: Yes, that's an A.
Aenir798: H for Heroic?
CanvasWolfDoll: that's an a.
TXC2: that or a 21
Parkes04: Tanks make great fertilizer
Twinklebees: Yeah, that's an A
morgoth_bauglyr: A
CanvasWolfDoll: good jorb, paul.
Earthenone: A. so in anime that means "room for improvment"
atlas624: That's an A, highest rank you can get
red_shoes_jeff: H? 4?
Sertion: 74
BellaDante__: it's an A
theneatestburrito: Rank ,4 ?
Zyme86: Mag have mercy on my enemies cause paul wont
syupweque: I find myself a fan of raz
Aenir798: It's an A with a note attached saying "see me".
atlas624: Could be worse, Welkin from the first game based an entire battle plan on a patch of reeds in a river
TXC2: Europan is how I would spell European
Talin06: it was in the first game
H1Lari0us: Europan lul
Earthenone: maybe it will help them design better flower camoflauge
Laogeodritt: Europan, not European. =P
BellaDante__: yeah this is Anime WW2
atlas624: Oh its hella world war 2
Talin06: it is not not WWII
brainbosh: I feel there were a lot of other european wars before then.
CanvasWolfDoll: @syupweque eh, he's that 'charming harrasser' anime trope i dislike. plus arrogence, but mostly the first thing.
BellaDante__: all the games take place during the Second Eurpoan War
TXC2: It's WW 1.5
theneatestburrito: Legally distinct western continent?
iammorthos: Calling it WW2 may bring is some "Complications" for a Japanese Video Game
brainbosh: World War B
Zath_: Big Conflict Act the second
syupweque: @CanvasWolfDoll I still prefer him to this main character crying about flowers. Just me though
Twinklebees: Nah, the salute is a new cutscene
red_shoes_jeff: World War 1.4C
margieargie: World War 360
Twinklebees: Since it says "new" in the corner
atlas624: Oh yeah, we're about to meet your rival. She's got great.....seniority
Talin06: World War Mongoose?
BellaDante__: that third one is a new cutscene
Earthenone: i think you need to click on being sad abouyt flowers
atlas624: Click new, you won't go wrong
red_shoes_jeff: The War To End Some Wars
mtvcdm: World War fanfic. Tags: Sonic the Hedgehog, elfpreg
adi_pie: You won't joke when the Dryad Council comes after us, Paul.
m_logan2000: operation save the flowers
Sarah_Serinde: Had to go plant flowers first
atlas624: Seniority is an interesting thing to describe Minerva's qualities. All two of them
Twinklebees: Minerva's so angry at Claude for being an anime protagonist. It's great.
Earthenone: ohh she is a "victor" i hope she enjoys those spoils and writing the history
Zath_: Such lax dress code
BellaDante__: Minerva is great
BellaDante__: because she just doesn't like Claude at all but knows she has to put up with him
margieargie: We can't fight without our vital flower resources!
Zyme86: The federation needs Sisko, not there here we want but the hero we need
adi_pie: Good thing we have a plucky team up to the task of turning this all around.
TXC2: Zath_ it's an anime, "Dress Code" is basically some colour co-ordination
Earthenone: play to your outs federation
atlas624: Paul, you have no idea how right you are
margieargie: Europa? A lot less ice than I was expecting.
BellaDante__: my understanding of this series is that there are like 20 plucky teams going around
splatty1: IQ 200 plan
Pal_Friendpatine: That voice was Hawk Moth
adi_pie: Their butts.
TastyJams just subscribed with Twitch Prime!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TastyJams! (Today's storm count: 16)
atlas624: @margieargie The winter missions come later
Psychic_Ketchup: We put all our eggs in one basket! It's perfect!
Earthenone: solid plan, why did we not do that at the start?
SpacePotato01: "there was a typo. They sent us a plant"
Earthenone: i hope it was a flower
CanvasWolfDoll: !advice
LRRbot: Hit them in the crack!
H1Lari0us: all units into one attack lrrBEEJ
TheM8: as you are playing France im not hopeful...
illmastershogun: Operation all eggs in the basket commence.
adi_pie: Their Death Star?
red_shoes_jeff: I think the Empires winning for a reason.
BellaDante__: "Let's just attack their capital"
Zath_: This is actually StarWars isn't it
morgoth_bauglyr: yes
Earthenone: @BellaDante__ nice
TXC2: Camera no!
splatty1: straight to the capital! Kappa
atlas624: I think I have a different target, and so did the camera
Zyme86: More of a left cross
JollyGee29: "Schwarzgrad?" Really?
Zath_: Good ol' not Europe
TheM8: blackcastle?
adi_pie: The United Kingdom of Edinburgh
Earthenone: its not NOT the map
CanvasWolfDoll: @TheM8 england. they're part of fantasy!england's army (but they come from fantasy... belgium? i think is gallia?)
Psychic_Ketchup: Hey I have family in Sneek
morgoth_bauglyr: gallia as in asterix
TXC2: ragnite = not oil
atlas624: Yeah, Gallia is fantasy Low Countries, so Belgium and Holland
Gallium71: As a resident of Edinburgh I approve of this arrangement.
BellaDante__: don't mock the lances
SenseAmidstMadness: Video James!
Earthenone: those lances are rocket launhers
TXC2: Hello James
manfred909: morning James
flameburstx: ah, the good old NotGermany vs NotAllies conflict
Zyme86: @paul the lances are rocket launchers
RedEmpress_: James!
Zath_: So wait, the brilliant plan is to invade Russia in winter?
atlas624: @Gallium71 As an Englishman I approve, your capital is much nicer than London
MagicalSkeleton: James!
TreeGamer35: morning James
adi_pie: I think 7 10ths was of the entire continent.
BellaDante__: why is it the Eastern Theater, there arn't any other theaters
Laogeodritt: canvaswolfdoll: IIRC Gallia is an odd mix of Belgium and the Netherlands
rogerivany: Would've been here earlier but that sub-train from yesterday went on forever.
Mysticman89: they should make their barracades out of the same stuff as they make flowers out of.
Pal_Friendpatine: I like that James’ shirt says oediv semag
TXC2: Can't we go sideways to victory?
flameburstx: maybe the war would go less poorly if our soldiers could see instead of covering their eyes with oversized helmets
Earthenone: world war 1.5 remix
Aenir798: Man I'm surprised they came up with all this, it's almost like it was based on something that possibly happened in real life
rybackgaming: The Great Snorsh War.
o0sk_ren0o: This is... the whole story
atlas624: I've always treated these cutscenes as being part of some documentary made decades after the war
Laogeodritt: Oh hey, James is here!
adi_pie: Welcome to JRPGs, Turner. :P
brainbosh: The Great War B
Armstrong11139: It's World War II, but pronounced "World War Second" Kappa
CanvasWolfDoll: @Laogeodritt in my defense, i don't know eurpean geography, even without a coating of fantasy gloss.
Zath_: Legally distinct global fighting 2
red_shoes_jeff: You don't play many JRPGs, do you James?
TXC2: Armstrong11139 hahaha
Mysticman89: a 100 hour jrpg is a fast one
BellaDante__: oh you will do one more mission this stream
BellaDante__: out of like 50
BellaDante__: this is a long game
Zath_: Why is her chin so sharp
BellaDante__: anime
Earthenone: we can now bust caps?
flameburstx: is... is this a participation badge?
Twinklebees: I think you got a medal for getting an A in the mission
Psychic_Ketchup: For when you need to cap some fools
CanvasWolfDoll: @flameburstx yes!
Laogeodritt: @canvaswolfdoll That's fair. Also need European 20th c. history to get a lot of the inspirations and parallels. ;P (To be fair, not my forte either—I prefer medieval England/France, early imperial China and bits of premodern Japan.)
adi_pie: Games of Cinema
accountmadeforants: Look man, that medal was only valid for 6 months. You need a new one.
atlas624: @flameburstx That's an actual thing you get for being involved in some wars. My dad got a few from the first Guf War
o0sk_ren0o: Eurnot?
Zyme86: That seems a little ambitious
SpacePotato01: it's an off-brand europe to avoid copyright claims
Mysticman89: the world is flat and it ennds at russia.
Aenir798: wow
Psychic_Ketchup: Eurnopa
Aenir798: I don't want to even imagine those supply lines
atlas624: @Zyme86 Scout rushing is a totally legitimate strategy
theneatestburrito: Could Eu-ro-not?
TXC2: is that a Digital camera?
syupweque: Yes. Raz is starting to lose me
flameburstx: @LoadingReadyRun hae you played the original valkyria chronicles? it is basically NotBelgium defending itself from NotGermany
adi_pie: Raz was the first to die in this mission.
atlas624: You'll be glad to know Raz is designated butt monkey and gets his ass kicked a lot
TXC2: Hell no
theneatestburrito: It only helps a little.
Zath_: Imperial music on the horizon!
brainbosh: JRPG Punk
Zyme86: The weaponry is both yes and no
adi_pie: The weapons are era appropraite-ish.
Psychic_Ketchup: The tanks have literal glowing weak spots
BellaDante__: yeah the main characters in this game are all Not!Belgians in the Not!England army
adi_pie: But also have the Magical Element.
flameburstx: well james, have you ever heard of kryptonite powered tanks?
margieargie: I hope they don't have any flowers in -their- territory that might end up as collateral damage...
atlas624: Absolutely not. Machine guns are basically unheard of outside of tanks and mortars are newfangled prototype tech
splatty1: they use lenfields not enfields Kappa
Saunabath: Didn't Graham and Paul make an Unskippable episode on Valkyria Chronicles?
Earthenone: they did!
atlas624: And Robinsons, not Thompsons
BellaDante__: yeah the Robby Gun
Earthenone: it was great
adi_pie: The first game also dealt with the subject of concentration camps, so be prepared for that to maybe pop up.
EJGRgunner: So basically unleaded mana-line?
flameburstx: now that i think about it, that one tank from the original is basically the T-1000 isn't it?
CanvasWolfDoll: @Saunabath they did! got me interested, so i played the first one, then started on this one, and reconmended it for this stream! it all comes around.
SenseAmidstMadness: What the fuck
Rhynerd: a monocle
SenseAmidstMadness: Why
Psychic_Ketchup: Look, glasses are expensive okay
Mysticman89: the birdge make keeping it on your face much easier
Zyme86: Flash call, Thunder response was the password for paratroopers in the 101st on dday
H1Lari0us: monoglass
red_shoes_jeff: That's a Monocle with extra steps.
Talin06: yes welcome to anime
adi_pie: They make their monocles like they make their Europes. Poorly. From memory.
Rhynerd: So, I went to get a sandwich, what have I missed?
BellaDante__: "I'm her girlfriend"
flameburstx: look, in war everyone has to ration. even people wearing glasses
Rhynerd: Besides james coming in
Kerrisis: Monocle. She's evil. Guaranteed.
TXC2: Rhynerd cutscense

manfred909: for a howitzer that is HUGE
flameburstx: "21 centimeters. that's not so big" - James Turner, 2018
Rhynerd: did paul choose the members of his "squad" or did they just meet Minerva?
Earthenone: pride69 #charity also bits left to give
$396,181 total raised so far for Direct Relief! 12 more hours to show support. Cheer and include #charity. Learn More at
TXC2: Rhynerd nope
CanvasWolfDoll: minerva runs her own squad.

manfred909: midnight
EvilBadman: Midnight PST, I beleive
Rhynerd: That dog is an officer, Paul.
atlas624: How dare, Rags is a vital part of this squad!
Earthenone: again, we have a dog, wagging tounge is ok
Saunabath: "Forget your tactical sense. The plot requires us to act irresponsibly."
TXC2: the Dog is not a pet, the Dog is the Comanding officer Kappa
adi_pie: I'm sure we can find some more subs to give, James. Kappa
Brok3nGol3m: so at 5x, about 2 million $ in bits
adi_pie gifted a Tier 1 sub to adi_pie2_electricboogaloo!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, adi_pie2_electricboogaloo! (Today's storm count: 18)
Twinklebees: Minerva just straight up hates Claude. It's rather refreshing.
BellaDante__: There is smooching but its plot only
Zyme86: In the first one a kid was born in the tank
BellaDante__: also respect Rags, that dog is an officer
CanvasWolfDoll: okay, i'm just going to say: Minerva isn't into any member of your squad. they pair off within their own ranks.
adi_pie: The kid was part tank.
Earthenone: it was not shown
atlas624: I hope not, but it had been in that barn for a long time...
Mysticman89: if the tank is rockin, don't come a knockin?
flameburstx: no, the tank was protecting a pregnant woman
TXC2: !addquote (Paul) [now] We got a Tank, we're gonna be bangin a lot of stuff.
LRRbot: New quote #5649: "We got a Tank, we're gonna be bangin a lot of stuff." —Paul [2018-12-27]
Lightningbro: Really? Valkiria Chronicles 4 won? Sick.
Rhynerd: The turrets in the turrets.
Avayu: cheer300 Right, still got some of these lying around. #charity

TXC2: If the tank is a rocking, get the fuck away from the tank
Rhynerd: Food for powder
Saunabath: "Castle turned into a makeshift fort" Castles are forts!!!
adi_pie: A cannon's got to eat.
flameburstx: they have a cannon, you are fodder. do the math
Rhynerd: they'll fill a grave as fine as any other
atlas624: Oh yeah, Gallia is a little bit Swiss as well
adi_pie: Yeah. THere's the United Kingdom of Edinburg.
adi_pie: It's not-Great Britain.
flameburstx: again?
BellaDante__: yeah its the Kingdom of Edinburgh
Twinklebees: flameburstx: they're referring to the plot of VC1
Earthenone: well its haf ok
Psychic_Ketchup: What about the flowers!?
JollyGee29: So this is concurrent with the first one timeline wise?
TXC2: "well lads, we're taking a fortified location with no artillery support, command expect nothing to go wrong."
BellaDante__: yeah
Rhynerd: Those fools, they started the plot to Valkyria Chronicles 1
flameburstx: @Twinklebees oh this plays at the same time?
adi_pie: Oh, so this is at the same time as the first game.
Twinklebees: flameburstx: Yeah
BellaDante__: All the Valkyria Chronoicles games happen at the same time I think
atlas624: Yep, in fact events of the first game directly impact the story of this game
o0sk_ren0o: Oh is this a prequel?
CraziestOwl: Sup guys w
TXC2: there GOLF in this game?
Lightningbro: Fishing? You mean Golf
morgoth_bauglyr: @adi_pie yes it is
Amentur: If they get some golf balls this war is over
o0sk_ren0o: Or is it in parallel
Rhynerd: I thought one of the Valkyria Chronicles games happened after the first
accountmadeforants: Adam will take over your country so he can golf there
adi_pie: TXC2 sadky no. But we have a gulf.
Zyme86: @TXC2 the head is the hole and the rifle is the club
Twinklebees: TXC2: Only if the ball is a mortar shell, and the hole is an enemy.
flameburstx: lets do it for NozBelgium
RedEmpress_: visions of adam sitting atop a tank, screaming "GET OUTPLAYED!"
Rhynerd: Involving a civil war that happened the first
adi_pie: It's a cutscene game, James.
Lightningbro: Adam would take over a country just to have a new Spheda course.
adi_pie: A mooovie, if you will.
Zath_: Is this the same Gallia from Fire Emblem 9/10?
BrindleBoar: Strategy by way of Third Person Shooter
iammorthos: THis would be an interesting Talking Simulator, but as an example of Romatisism of the world wars from a perspective where Japan was magically not involved.
JollyGee29: @Zath_ No Laguz here, I'm afraid. That would be sweet though
noSmokeFire: if you're cold, they're cold. bring your howitzers inside
TXC2: oof that maxim
Rhynerd: that howitzer would be less visible without the camo net
CraziestOwl: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:05:08.
adi_pie: I know Cameron has played some of this.
Rhynerd: it looks like it's the same color as the bricks there
adi_pie: Or the first one in any case.
Zyme86: @paul I have a bit coin update. 1 year drop from 19,783 to 3810 as of today
Rhynerd: Yeah, Cameron played 2 sessions of the first Valkyria Chronicles
Lightningbro: @iammorthos So "The world the way Japan wishes it was"?
EvilBadman: Zyme86 Holy Moly.
Laogeodritt: I would want to get one of my 20th c. Europe history friends in to do a Talking SIm-type thing with this. That'd be so fascinating.
Earthenone: !findquote silly
LRRbot: Quote #429: "Silly James! Go away!" —James [2015-07-09]
TXC2: Zyme86 lrrWOW
Rhynerd: I remember him noticing how young a lot of his troops were
iammorthos: @Lightningbro no, that world would be called. "Japan, the endless Empire of the sun."
TheMerricat: Afternoon chat. How's the game so far?
CanvasWolfDoll: there's a squad member that shows up later who is a japanese ninja, so there's actually a little ambiguity about not!japan's role in all this.
Lightningbro: @iammorthos Actually for a very good time Japan was just "I have my island, I'm happy, leave me out of it
adi_pie: Cutscene-y, TheMerricat.
BellaDante__: yeah they all have people they like and different traits
adi_pie: Also, welcome.
TXC2: Jimmy Frank? well that fuckers dying
BellaDante__: also side missions
adi_pie: "She likes Raz" well, there's no accounting for taste.
BellaDante__: you should press D to see their traits
splatty1: Jean Matrix!
iammorthos: @Lightningbro yes they were, and then they weren't
Talin06: is Vyse in this game?
Rhynerd: Yeah, soldiers have traits that give buffs and debuffs in certain situations
theneatestburrito: There are X dislikes Y traits, I seem to recall?
Lightningbro: @iammorthos And then a world war happened and they went back to it.
BellaDante__: Jean Matrix is great because she's just a reference to Comando
theneatestburrito: For relationships?
Rhynerd: Vyse might be in this game, but he's part of Gallia
noSmokeFire: don't forget a lancer
BrindleBoar: "Jean Matrix"
Rhynerd: he'd have to be a cameo from a meet with Squad 7 from VC1
Lightningbro: The trait "Husband at home" is "I've got a Husband back home"
iammorthos: @Lightningbro yeah, a little mainland is island hopping got them the taste for empire. And so it goes
TXC2: all snipers, like overwatch Kappa
Zath_: Snipers are basically mini artillery
Earthenone: all snipers seems like a good way to win a game of halo though
CanvasWolfDoll: hold on, james. these snipers are actually pretty great and i love them.
adi_pie: "That's a good way to lose a war" James has clearly never played X-Com Kappa
Rhynerd: Lancers are anti-tank infantry. Big slow armored fellows with rpg lances.
noSmokeFire: Laurent is a fan of disney's aladdin
BellaDante__: Laurent McCloud is a protagonist of a different Anime game
adi_pie: Oh, wait we lost the war in X-Com. Fuck.
BellaDante__: bring Rosetta
BellaDante__: she's the best
darkecologist: why is 'panicky' a bad trait. i need to know right now.
TXC2: All assault is how one wins X-com Kappa
gnome_friend: !smash
LRRbot: Put Elspeth Tirel in Smash, you cowards!
BellaDante__: the cute dog is a medic
splatty1: cute dog is with the medic
TheMerricat: Squads A-D, just watch us run in and figut!
BellaDante__: if a unit goes down the dog will sometimes come in to get them
BellaDante__: it gives the other soldiers a moral boost
TXC2: a cute dog with a hat Paul, dont forget the hat
Deftscythe just subscribed with Twitch Prime. Deftscythe subscribed for 20 months in a row!
Deftscythe: 4x5 Glorious Months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Deftscythe! (Today's storm count: 19)
Zath_: "Routed" is a nice way of saying horribly slaughtered
Zyme86: Free brandy for everyone
adi_pie: He has a magic potion in his cask.
TheMerricat: Don't forget the basics, and maybe also don't forget those advanced lessons we gave you, you know the whole reason why you are a leader!
adi_pie: You can basically retreat a unit at a camp and then hop them to a camp further on in later turns.
Rhynerd: oh, that's a tank
captain_wulf: went and picked up my CAD for the GP ... ya'll got some sweet money
Didero: So World War Fun is basically a continent-wide game of Capture The Flag?
CanvasWolfDoll: yeah, this game is essentially a slightly more complicated stratego.
Didero: Also, good evening
Professor_Rakor: You're going to need to stab them..with bullets.
Lightningbro: I miss my copy of VC1 on PSP, I liked having the Little Wings from Phantasy Star Portable 2 in random oddly realistic war-sim
TXC2: "Woah hes got a big thing!"
Rhynerd: note the game said defense and hp
Rhynerd: not Ap
PandasAndPancakes: Don't bring him too close - he's still vulnerable to machine gun fire
TXC2: hello Didero wecome
TXC2: *welcome
adi_pie: Meatl Gear Valkyria.
noSmokeFire: just sleeping
Rhynerd: you can go prone in tall grass
BasilBrushOff: He's pinin' for the fjords
Butthurtgamer2: tanks are very vulnerable in the back, where they glow blue
Zyme86: Taking out the bogie is a legit way to take out tanks IRL it would knock off the track
adi_pie: Away.
adi_pie: It went away.
Rhynerd: it went boom
BrindleBoar: tank exploded, therefore gone
Psychic_Ketchup: They're biodegradable
Zyme86: The shadow realm
Rhynerd: it's in the land of wind and ghosts now
TXC2: the tank never was
Earthenone: your tank can also provide cover
PandasAndPancakes: Silly James, explosions have teleportation properties. Have you never exploded to get to DQ before?
Rhynerd: you see, this is 8th edition valkyria chronicles, tanks no longer take up the board as wrecks when they die.
TXC2: But they still have directional armour Kappa
BrindleBoar: maybe you can break that rubble by driving your tank through it
Rhynerd: maybe you can shoot a machine gunn turret?
red_shoes_jeff: Heh. "Shot."
Earthenone: 1 damage
Earthenone: it has 200 hp
adi_pie: It dealt exactly ONE point of damage.
PandasAndPancakes: ?? means more than 99 shots to kill.
Zyme86: It does something, not much
theneatestburrito: Only 1199 shots to go!
Lightningbro: To Kill ?? doesn't that mean "To kill, far more than you have ammo or time for."?
splatty1: 1/12000 almost there kai
Rhynerd: 1 damage down, 1199 to go
DartAgain: GRN GRN GRN
incslayer: GRN GRN GRN
Professor_Rakor: Be wary of debris hitboxes.
PandasAndPancakes: switch to mortar?
adi_pie: Honestly, this style of game feels like a good fit for the Switch.
BrindleBoar: yeah obstacles have big hitboxes
EvilBadman: There's a demo on the switch as well, but it's probably that first mission paul played.
TXC2: the tanks noise is guilds of Ravnica? Kappa
TehAmelie: was this tank made for us?
jonnykefka: The wall's in the way. The turret is below the camera
CanvasWolfDoll: use a mortar
Rhynerd: don't leave home without mortar shot
adi_pie: I'm sure this is mortar-fying to the enemy.
CanvasWolfDoll: also, i use a controller. does keyboard offer 'snap to next enemy' buttons?
Lightningbro: Camera is above barrel. hence the issue you're having aiming
EvilBadman: @CanvasWolfDoll A and D
Zyme86: Shooting the side face of the turret IRL most likely disable the tank
theneatestburrito: The first one ported to English, maybe?
jonnykefka: No, the series is relatively new. The company previously made Skies of Arcadia
incslayer: i want more SoA
Zyme86: Mortars are anti infantry,
Zath_: BLAM
Twinklebees: Blam
TXC2: that man? dead, D E D dead
Jorge4hg: overkill
CanvasWolfDoll: go left!
TheMerricat: maybe back up from the wall so they can't counter attack?
jonnykefka: @incslayer play the first Valkyria Chronicles and you at least get Vyse and Aika as playable characters...
red_shoes_jeff: "Where's the engineer!?" "Covering the rear flank, sir!"
incslayer: @jonnykefka i bought the first Valkyria Chronicles for that exact reason
Rhynerd: isn't there also a third character from Arcadia Skies in VC1?
jonnykefka: they were busted-good
Rhynerd: the medic, maybe?
incslayer: yea shes a medic
jonnykefka: yes, the medic
splatty1: turrets have op armor
Rhynerd: "ow,"
CanvasWolfDoll: yeah. gatling turrets are cheats.
PandasAndPancakes: Fina is canonically one of the medics
Professor_Rakor: Hell of a helmet.
PharaohBender27: Hello chat! I see we're playing Anime Not-Not World War II: The Game.
Stoffern: I guess they have a lvl 5 helmet
margieargie: You could at least sell the hit!
TXC2: hello PharaohBender27 welcome
Mysticman89: thats a fine helmet hes got
TXC2: that's all we SAW they did
The_FlyingDutchman: charity50 hey I found some bits in the couch after yesterday #charity

EvilBadman: Your second lancer may be able to hit the tank over the rubble
Lightningbro: @TXC2 Actually they only moved two units. There's a pause between different units.
PharaohBender27: @The_FlyingDutchman Yesterday was insane, in the best possible way
Rhynerd: do tank treads still have their own Hp in htis game?
Twinklebees: Generally you don't need to be too afraid of enemy fire. Your dudes are fairly sturdy unless they take a direct hit from a tank or something
adi_pie: Man, imagine, if the enemy could move.
TheMerricat: good thing you killed that engie. ^_^
adi_pie: "Repair sandbags" apparently means "bring more"
Lithobraker: Oh hey! it's the warcrimes game!
incslayer: cheer304 *feels inspired to also rummage through couch* found some leftover bits aswell #charity

adi_pie: I'd be curious if the Scouts are as busted as they were in the first one still?
Despoiler98: that's some Storm Trooper level shooting there
Rhynerd: that's X- er, Valkyria Chronicles
BrindleBoar: when you fire a projectile it can go anywhere in the red dotted circle
Twinklebees: adi_pie: They are.
adi_pie: Excellent
CanvasWolfDoll: please move your tank around. it will fit the way your units are going...
incslayer: that tank disappeared...
Twinklebees: They didn't really fix the problem that the game is heavily biased towards taking enemy bases as quickly as possible
splatty1: you reload one shot per turn automatically
Lightningbro: Yes, "Getting stuck on level telometry" does cost AP.
Despoiler98: his helmet needs many bullets
Rhynerd: @Twinklebees so, make sure to make a super fast scout?
Professor_Rakor: Lancers and snipers only recover one ammo per round, so if you want them doing multiple attacks each round, engineers refill them all the way.
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker Wait, do they actually have warcrimes in this game? I pretty much only know this series from the Unskippable episode, and had thought they would have "sanitized" that aspect, so to speak
Twinklebees: Rhynerd: Well, they all move the same distance, but some have better potentials
Lightningbro: Only two of the gatling guns can see you
adi_pie: Oh, boy do warcrimes happen in the first game.
Twinklebees: The best ones have a random chance of getting double the movement in a turn
BasilBrushOff: boop
Despoiler98: the saddest rifle ever
CanvasWolfDoll: if you just keep advancing thorugh the level, you'll get a unit to deal with the gatling turrets.
TXC2: well shit
TehAmelie: i choose to believe there's really a mouse scroll wheel inside your scope
PharaohBender27: Either this game's rifles are nerfed, or the helmets are OP
Rhynerd: lrrHERE
Lithobraker: PharaohBender27 from watching I think CaffeinatedLemur play the game there are a number of cut scenes that effectively have the protagonists commit warcrimes.
Twinklebees: PharaohBender27: Turrets are actually armoured units, so small arms are less effective. I think
Lightningbro: "Those walls should provide good cover" Shut up, your vote is invalid, everyone can see me.
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker *facepalm*
TreeGamer35: what war game is complete without a few war crimes
adi_pie: Lithobraker, I miss the good ol' "!warcrimes" command.
TehAmelie: is this Xcom without the science fiction but with anime graphics?
Professor_Rakor: Yeah pretty much.
morgoth_bauglyr: not really
adi_pie: Basically.
TheMerricat: jump over the sandbag and use the other side for cover?
Rhynerd: and with more overwatching
Rhynerd: and a different command system
TreeGamer35: you aim the shots too
Rhynerd: and it's magical ww2
CanvasWolfDoll: at least they avoid the legitamate warcrime games usually make. (the red cross thing)
Lithobraker: PharaohBender27 on the other hand, as I recall they were mostly things that were technically war crimes but wouldn't actually get prosecuted even if the Hague was a effective organization.
Lightningbro: @TehAmelie And an aiming system that mildly listens to your input
EvilBadman: I love that that question got 2 yeses and a no.
adi_pie: EvilBadman, a resounding "maybe"!
TehAmelie: well, i always say genres are useless
Rhynerd: I'd say it'e closer to what an Infinity video game would be like, but I've only played the infinity tabletop game once.
TehAmelie: and Xcom is basically a genre
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker Oh, OK. Because seeing as how this is "Not-Not World War II," I thought you meant there'd be . . . World War II-type atrocities.
Professor_Rakor: You do still have to deal with permadeath, except now they're characters with backstory.
Rhynerd: There's a degree of that.
masta2505: Instant shooting
PandasAndPancakes: PharaohBender27 In the first game, even the good guys are racist assholes.
Lightningbro: "Similar" in the way they're both turnbased tactical shooter-rpgs. But their fundimental gameplay is mildly different. Also all units have Overwatch, for the win.
Lithobraker: PharaohBender27 oh, yeah no. war crimes, not crimes against humanity. Not even "morale bombing" iir
Pal_Friendpatine: Did Paul say “basshole” ?
Talin06: i love that overwatch is free
Rhynerd: The not-germans in this game do have a thing against "darcsens" a people known for pale skin, dark hair, and a certain pattern of cloth that they tend to wear.
incslayer: @Talin06 that is one of the reasons i like that game aswell :p
adi_pie: That man is made out of steel.
TheMerricat: 10 hp left.... :-)
Twinklebees: You start with 3 ammo and gain 1 per phase
morgoth_bauglyr: engineers can also refill ammo
TheMerricat: bet your tank can take care of it.
Lithobraker: CanvasWolfDoll I remember when the Eve online devs did that to be able to put "Game brought into compliance with Genveva Convention" in the patch notes. The playerbase did not realize this and got *really* pissed at the red cross for presumably suing the devs.
MecaXeno: can you use your camp to call reenforcements
TheMerricat: lol I was watching that simpsons episode this week too
TXC2: TheMerricat good old flying hellfish
Rhynerd: you could swap your second lancer out for an engineer

Despoiler98: so we've learned that rockets.....hurt people.....
TheMerricat: @Stellapacifica the real problem with the conventions is that they were designed for the sort of warfare that we saw in WWI/II an don't really cover modern situations.
Lightningbro: !findquote rockets

silenceaux: Just fire over your sniper's shoulder, they'll be cool with it
Banrael: Excellent.
PharaohBender27: @Stellapacifica Probably. There's also some weird (i.e. not things you'd think of) stuff - I remember learning that using the sort of soft lead bullets and bayonets they used in 18th-19th century warfare now would be considered a warcrime.
TXC2: when does #Charity end James?
Twinklebees: Hiding in the grass also reduces the damage you take
Lightningbro: Isn't it lovely that all armies keep their unit's classification neatly on their uniform in a universal norm?
Earthenone: 12 hours
Earthenone: ends at midnight pacific
TXC2: like the exact time
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun how did the giving of donations to your mother work out James, I missed it if you mentioned it already
Rhynerd: I forget, is using a shotgun as a weapon a warcrime or just frowned upon?
TXC2: oh, thanks :P
morgoth_bauglyr: ranges in this game are very short. like half pubg pistol range short
TXC2: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 11:38 AM
Stellapacifica: @TheMerricat @PharaohBender27 yeah, that kind of stuff. Maybe we should update them... there's some stuff that really oughta be on the list that didn't exist at the time.
TXC2: !charity
LRRbot: Until midnite tonight (PST), cheer with #charity and Twitch will donate $.20 for every 100 Bits to Direct Relief.
Twinklebees: Actually, in this game that's pretty medium range.
Lightningbro: "I've got a clear shot of your head"... WHY WOULD YOU TELL THEM THAT OVER THE RADIO!? I mean, seriously army-dude.
Twinklebees: You're playing waaaay longer range than you really should.
PharaohBender27: @Rhynerd Not 100% sure, but I think using a shotgun as a weapon is considered a warcrime - you're allowed to use them to shoot doors open.
PharaohBender27: @Lightningbro They went to the James Bond Villain School of Explaining Everything to Your Nemisis
Earthenone: remember kobe for accuracy
silenceaux: Probably harder to throw from on your knees
PharaohBender27: *Nemesis
TXC2: using a shotgun is a "war crime" Because Germany complained about them after WW1
margieargie: Takes out cover, and also the person taking cover.
TehAmelie: i understand the old full metal jacket is the only ammunition that's good for shooting people according to the geneva convention
TXC2: turns out shotguns are SUPER effective in trenches
TheMerricat: @Stellapacifica the irony is that that's been attempted a number of times but either the US or Russia refuse to limit their options and it ends up just being the folk who really never needed to sign them who sign the updates.
Gallium71: TXC2 depends who you talk to, or so I have been told
TXC2: TehAmelie that's more an environmental thing
Lightningbro: @PharaohBender27 At least for them that makes sense, you can't be a Super Villain without exposition, but the foot soldiers aren't supposed to expose their actions.
DigitalSeahorse: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (3:17 from now).
Gregarious_Potato: jeesh did they have to make the girl butt so obvious?...
Rhynerd: @PharaohBender27 thanks for clarifying! I thought I had heard that before but I needed some clarification
DartAgain: it's tactical @Gregarious_Potato
Despoiler98: "show me what you can do" What kind of order is that? is that really an officer talking on your radio?
TXC2: Gregarious_Potato it's anime, so sadly yes
BasilBrushOff: Standard sniper issue Tactical Widowmaker Yoga Pants
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie - Yeah, the reason that 18th-19th century style ammo is not allowed is because soft lead bullets absolutely WRECK you - it wasn't just because of primitive medical science that so many people died of battle wounds back then.
Rhynerd: can you drive over those barriers?
Twinklebees: All the other snipers, even female ones, get butt-covering ponchos. Not Kai though. She's special
adi_pie: This game has a *a lot* of sexist stuff in it, sadly.
mosartov: @Rhynerd no
Gregarious_Potato: @TXC2 its sad that anime type genres do that, I would purchase more games like this if it wasn't so obvious
Despoiler98: hmmmmm tank beats sandbags *takes notes*
Rhynerd: doesn't the tank also have a machine gun?
TXC2: Gregarious_Potato Blame historical ingrained Japanese Sexism
Stellapacifica: Bullets that don't hold up on impact are essentially improved shrapnel. Bye bye internal organs.
morgoth_bauglyr: when he's standing he's not protected by the sandbags
mosartov: what a champ!
DartAgain: just takes it
YourDMJay: TANKED that shot
Rhynerd: he just has tha tank shell replacing his hips
EvilBadman: He just did the Homer Carnival bit.
PharaohBender27: Abs of steel!
Tiber727: A great tactic is to simply run over the sandbags to remove their protection.
accountmadeforants: Turns out that was Captain not-Germany, he's mad!
Lightningbro: Turns out using the same stuff you make medical kits to make high explosives isn't incredibly lethal, who'd've thought?
Despoiler98: psssssssh
Grevas13: I don't really think it's inherently sexist for a character to have a sexualized design.
frnknstn: Shotguns are not banned in the Geneva Convention. Germany did object to them after WW1, but they were voted down
Despoiler98: knee high wood barriers the BANE of tanks existences

SenseAmidstMadness: The combat in this game seems...bad...
TXC2: Stellapacifica indeed
Twinklebees: SenseAmidstMadness: They are not playing particularly well.
Despoiler98: that rocket launder is.......impractical
p_swizzles: hey boxnard
Despoiler98: launcher
morgoth_bauglyr: @SenseAmidstMadness they need to get about 3x as close to be effective
Phllufy: no such thing as over kill
TXC2: It's like a bangalore
TheMerricat: @TXC2 actually only the germans considered 'trench guns' a war crime, they decided to announce any solder caught using one would be shot on sight if captured, to which the US responded that any soldier using a saw toothed bayonet ( i.e. Germans) would be shot on sight as well. The US has been using shotguns in combat ever since.
Rhynerd: think you can hit the machine gun from here with that lancer?
YourDMJay: go into the camp!!
LuHeGi: it has a gap at the bottom... thats probably why you couldnt hide behind it
Didero: The enemy can call in reinforcements from their flags though, right?
rendelnep: except the for the corrugated one my ancestors made
Earthenone: you can capture the flag
YourDMJay: go to the flag!
Twinklebees: Just get the flag
adi_pie: Listen, comms team, has your doctor never told you not to rush an operation?
Rhynerd: I agree with the flag cap idea
PharaohBender27: Whoops, @Rhynerd looks like I was misinformed - see TheMerricat's post above
bethjch: Flag
Rhynerd: alrighty then!
Despoiler98: I knew a medic in Desert Storm who carried a shotgun simply because if he was working on someone in the open he could fire it pistol grip and it would make the enemy duck WAY faster then a normal rifle would
TehAmelie: that rocket launcher looks like those comically large wooden guns they make trainees carry as punishment in i think the russian army
Stellapacifica: This "storm the castle" deal just makes me want to play the hyrule castle part of BotW
Twinklebees: They go to the Eddie Izzard military academy, and Flags are often the real objective
TrueSkorn: Just made it in, how are we doing boys?
Stellapacifica: I still have an autonomic response to the guardian alert noise
TehAmelie: we're winning the flags
Rhynerd: they've almost captured the outside of a castle
PharaohBender27: @TrueSkorn Slow but steady
Lightningbro: Blowing things up with WWII era fantasy-explosives
Despoiler98: This war is all about who has the most flags
TrueSkorn: Sweet
TheMerricat: @TrueSkorn X-COM in fantasy land WWI going accoridng to schedule, Paul is walking over them like a stormtrooper.
mosartov: @Stellapacifica automatic?
TXC2: see the thing with shotguns is that, while REALLY powerful, they're short range, slow to fire and REALLY heavy
Twinklebees: Nope, that's an impassable knee-high wall
Didero: Shoot the turret?
BasilBrushOff: that's a showjumping fence, you need a horse for that
mosartov: autonomous?
Stellapacifica: @mosartov sort of... I"m looking for the fancy word for fight-or-flight
Lightningbro: Shoot it anyway?

Despoiler98: *ting*
TrancedJoe: That turret isn’t going to attack yet anyway, right?
Despoiler98: impassable knee high walls, the greatest fortification
Twinklebees: Nope, TrancedJoe
Stellapacifica: Medical linguistics is hard but as long as you get your point across nothing else matters, lrrEFF prescriptivism
YourDMJay: they love each other very much
Lightningbro: But they tried, and they Volleyd
EvilBadman: I shot, and I missed. So I shot again, and I missed. Shot again, missed.
TheMerricat: "Give me a report on the enemy's movement" - Well sir, there's only one left and he's ignoring us while we lob rockets at his head!
mosartov: slow rollin doom
BasilBrushOff: they see me rollin', they hatin'
PharaohBender27: They vaporized him!
Lightningbro: Units next to one another can fire when another unit attacks. Might be... a chance? That's affected by how much the units like eachother
TXC2: "run little rabbit, run"

SenseAmidstMadness: Not the most stable army
TheMerricat: Twice James. TWICE!
BrindleBoar: time to rush in and die!
Rhynerd: is this the part where the love interest shows up?
Earthenone: children tend to exagerate
Twinklebees: Yes, Rhynerd
Lightningbro: The anti-tank symbol means there are baracades that need to be blown up
TheMerricat: Those kneehigh walls apparently can be killed by tank shots.
Despoiler98: I cant get over how stupid those rocket launchers are
Despoiler98: Stay Low! *holding 10 foot tall rocket*
Lightningbro: Note, IIRC. Tanks cannot "Volley" like other units.
DartAgain: sniper elite
morgoth_bauglyr: jeez the luck
mosartov: nice
Twinklebees: Lightningbro: They can in this game.
TheMerricat: @Despoiler98 "Lances"
PandasAndPancakes: lrrSACK

Earthenone: sometime you just need to roll a hard 6 i guess
Lightningbro: @Twinklebees REALLY?!
Tiber727: Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!
TXC2: I like how we carry it on the shoulder, but fire it Chainsaw style
red_shoes_jeff: SHOOT THEM, RAZ.
margieargie: Keep blowing them up, it's worked so far

Lightningbro: What. unit is.... GRENADIER!? I didn't know 4 had a new unit! type?
Earthenone: intercept=overwatch
Twinklebees: Interception fire is when you shoot at them on their turn and vice versa
incslayer: @Despoiler98 a mortar is sort of a slingshot
Mowdownjoe: That's anime for ya, Paul.
Lightningbro: "That gun is sweet" That gun is a Morter.
Lithobraker: Lightningbro next time I'm calling it a rifle :P
Twinklebees: Clunk, clatter, kerchunk.
Kykiwi: i think she is more aoe denial and less for dmg
TXC2: Morters can be guns Kappa

Lightningbro: @Lithobraker How about we break the difference and call it a bazooka?
Lightningbro: @Lithobraker I will also accept Railgun
incslayer: i have to admit im surprised that noone has introduced mecha's yet
BloodnBullets: looks like you can get a twofer on the bridge
red_shoes_jeff: lrrCOW Goodby!
TXC2: I think they dont want to overshadow the tank
Twinklebees: So, this is what you SHOULD have been using rather than sniping them with lances from across the map :P
Lightningbro: J.. that not cover James...
TheMerricat: might want to move a scout p as a spotter/
mosartov: dont leave her without fire support over there
splatty1: CQC mortar
Despoiler98: while you were studying the sword I was mastering the MORTAR
o0sk_ren0o: @Twinklebees Lance snipe has been a time honored tradition since the first game. It would be completely inappropriate to not do it at least once per game.
mosartov: to be fair, positioning that under someone's butt would be quite brutal
Lightningbro: It landed in front of the sandbags, lessening the blow to one of them, sadly.
Rhynerd: ded
Tiber727: *plop*

TheMerricat: pew pew pew pew.
Psychic_Ketchup: He had a plan and stuck with it til the end
PMAvers: It might not be hitting, but I think it said that units targeted by that are slowed down? So might still be worth.
Earthenone: well all units that can overwatch do it for free, cant rocket launcher overwatch
Twinklebees: PMAvers: Yeah, it's low accuracy, but if it does connect it's pretty devastating
TheMerricat: @PMAvers yes, she's 'intercepting' them which interferes with their movement and aim
Tiber727: @Lightningbro If anything, I feel they don't move up their units enough. May as well use your movement to the fullest to get the bonus for winning in the fewest number of actions.
YourDMJay: send someone to cap the flag too, yoour fastest boy
Lightningbro: @Tiber727 I mean, yeah, but they're moving up one unit or two, rather than the whole squad
Twinklebees: Yeah, this is effectively the tutorial mission for her unit type
o0sk_ren0o: Riley is such a good girl.
Rhynerd: They only brought one fast boi
TheMerricat: scout's time to shine!
bethjch: Don't you just need to grab the flag
Lightningbro: @bethjch Some missions, not all.
Twinklebees: Remember your objective!
Tiber727: @Lightningbro I remember having to leave behind your squad a lot to get the best ranking in VC1.
red_shoes_jeff: Get to cover?
PharaohBender27: Wait, if you clip something, does it automatically show up in chat, or do you have to manually put the link in chat? I might have boozled myself if it's the latter
BloodnBullets: "if you were from where he was from; You'd be DEAD!"
Earthenone: if you click on new flag, you can spawn units on your new base
Rhynerd: you have to manually load int eh link into chat
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 you have to copy paste the link
TXC2: PharaohBender27 you have to paste it in
PMAvers: Someone said that the D4's can be destroyed?
Rhynerd: but you can go into your video dashboard to find clips you've made
Lightningbro: @LoadingReadyRun Paul, the anti-tank symbols are breakable baracades.
PharaohBender27: Thanks, at @Rhynerd!
PandasAndPancakes: @pharaohbender27 ctrl + shift + t ?
TXC2: PharaohBender27 although I'm pretty sure we still get it on our backend
YourDMJay: drive over them
Twinklebees: No, the anti tank symbol means a tank can't fit
Alness49: Oh hey, is this that tank dating game? lrrBEEJ
Lightningbro: Or... they were in OTHER games
YourDMJay: yep!
YourDMJay: you were right
bethjch: The red ones were breakable
Didero: Can an engineer dismantle them or something?
Lithobraker: Let me just shoot right next to my sniper...
incslayer: are we doing "tankery"?
TXC2: possibly, but we dont have an enginner
Lightningbro: Whelp, ignore me, I was mistaken, They were breakable in older games
TheMerricat: "ome of them can't be blown up. Depends on the color. I think the pale blue ones are breakable and the brown ones unbreakable."
TheMerricat: from the game forums.

PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Ah, that makes sense. Still don't know why the embed thinks the title is "WildLuckyStarArsonNoSexy" :P
Cinntoastmin: lrrHORN
thetoastmonster: !game
LRRbot: Currently playing: Valkyria Chronicles 4
Lightningbro: I'm honestly kind of embarrassed that those Barricade weren't breakable...
TXC2: so they just had that rigged to blow at any time eh?
MousseFilledCat: Rank is solely determined by number of turns
Didero: So if that gun self-destructed, this whole mission was for nothing?
Alness49: Bs get Degrees of Artilery Fire
Twinklebees: Yeah, fewer turns means higher rank
Banrael: They now like meatloaf tacos?
Tiber727: Wow, it took 7 turns and you still got a B? This is way more forgiving than VC1.
TheMerricat: clips are assigned a random phrase, since it's not a given that you'd not pick a title that someone else is using.
Earthenone: well it WAS
Alness49: Turns out they needed an extra centimeter
Pteraspidomorphi: So, when's the livestream schedule overhaul meeting again? Just curious if the info currently on the calendar for upcoming weeks is reliable
cuttlefishman: So
TXC2: in no fucking way is that Gun 21cm across nor long
cuttlefishman: How anime are we thinking this game is so far?
cuttlefishman: Pretty anime?
red_shoes_jeff: Um, Raz MIGHT be fighting to die.
Despoiler98: why.....didn't they shoot the big gun AT the enemies in the gateway instead of blowing themselves up?
TXC2: SUPER anime
darkecologist: 'i don't really know how guns are measured, so i had no idea what size to expect'
PharaohBender27: TOS
TXC2: !clips
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
Lightningbro: (Pratfall) PAUL!
Cinntoastmin: UM
Fu4ow: aren't the enemies anime fascists ?
Defrost: Hey can I have someone volunteer to be a test dummy real quick?
PandasAndPancakes: P-Paul!
Dillox82 just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. Dillox82 subscribed for 40 months in a row!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Dillox82! (Today's storm count: 25)
Alness49: Are we NOT doing phrasing anymore!
SunsetOcelot: Are they still about a penis?
TXC2: Defrost you rang?
Despoiler98: sobering experience,....... ANYWAY
ValtheDrake: it's always the quiet ones...
Defrost: @TXC2 not a mod... ;)
TXC2: Yes Raz, it's a woman
MousseFilledCat: Defrost, what do you need?
Rhynerd: It's a childhood friends character!
Lithobraker: Isn't that an anime waifu?
TheMerricat: A CHILDHOOD FRIEND! Who would have thought!
Defrost: Hey it works!
Alness49: So you have Tsundere, Yandere and this lady here is Artillere
Despoiler98: what kind of uniform is that?
Ciijay: All of these lines - are they still talking about the penis?
incslayer: just because we are at war is not an excuse to not keep up with our scrapbooking
Defrost: Thanks MousseFilledCat <3
rendelnep: i' mean 21 cm is 8 inches...
PMAvers: I think it's usually the diameter of the bullet or shell. So it's shooting things that are like 8 inches in diameter.
MousseFilledCat: No problem.
TXC2: Defrost I could click to see the deleted message right?
SunsetOcelot: This game is full of madlibs
Lithobraker: Did Riley just deadname Kai?
incslayer: can friendship bloom on the battlefield?
Rhynerd: I think so
splatty1: always gesture with high explosives
Defrost: @txc2 just updated to Chatty (Version: 0.9.3-b5) wanted to see how they implemented the single message delete
Lightningbro: @Lithobraker I'd presume it's a passed loved one's name
TXC2: Defrost ah Ok
o0sk_ren0o: "Temporary" till the end of the game
noSmokeFire: "ragnite" sounds like a folksy prospector swear
red_shoes_jeff: Ragnabbit!
MousseFilledCat: I'm not sure what you did, Defrost, nothing looked different for me at all.
Psychic_Ketchup: I think the rule is "don't"
TXC2: Defrost ah a Beta version, Ok then
Alness49: The rule is make sure your grip is firm
Rhynerd: you're free to just hold a mortar shell, I guess.
Talin06: i think the rule is don't
margieargie: Unless it's a shaped explosive.
Rhynerd: I mean, you have to breach load more mortarts
PandasAndPancakes: It's like waving a landmine around.
Rhynerd: oh right, she hates your guts.
Grevas13: I'm going to go with Kai being her dead brother, killed early in the war. And that spurred her to join the army.
PandasAndPancakes: its probably fine so long as you don't drop it.
Lightningbro: Apparently Claude's the landmine
PharaohBender27: !?!
Zyme86: striking a superior officer that is court marsialable
MousseFilledCat: ellipses!!
Earthenone: !findquote ellipses
LRRbot: Quote #4750: "ELLIPSES!" —Jacob, repeatedly [2018-03-09]
incslayer: Tsundere much?
noSmokeFire: how did you take orders from him without knowing who he was??
TXC2: Zyme86 they're both Lieutenants
Znazl: rooWut
Lithobraker: I love how she's an "adviser" like the US special forces are all in "advise and assist" missions.
TXC2: war, war happened Kappa
PMAvers: Those two totally used to bone, didn't they?
WizardZedd: How did it take the entire length of that conversation for her to apparently recognize him?
Pteraspidomorphi: I recently watched the anime Gate and I can confirm the japanese are not big on chain of command there either
Rhynerd: @PMAvers they were kids
Alness49: But when you sit down and think about it, they ARE chevos!
GenericHerooo: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:14:51.
Lightningbro: Ah, yes. Obligatory reporter character.
Rhynerd: hey, another Ryan!
accountmadeforants: Hi I'm your new subordinate AND I 'M MAD! But legitimately though, I hate your guts.
ValtheDrake: wait, we're going to get an actual adult in our squad?
manfred909: 'potential'
Psychic_Ketchup: Big mood Claude
Lightningbro: Oh god they really are Otacon and Snake..
Saunabath: How is that a potential?
SunsetOcelot: Claude's preferences have changed?
Defrost: Fuck I unlocked that years ago..
incslayer: we can put stickers on the tank :P
CraziestOwl: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (2:42 from now).
Didero: I think the army prefers the term 'camouflage' over the word 'decal' :P
margieargie: When do we get "Normal Fence"?
Pteraspidomorphi: He's not self-conscious yet, but he might be at some point!
Zyme86: backery emblem is to put on the side of the thank to show off your kills
noSmokeFire: is there a setting to turn off the random voice lines?
Earthenone: wait, we only have our learners and we are driving a tank?
TXC2: pretty sure I was born with Self doubt :p
Saunabath: I feel like this game is Now Kiss material
Lightningbro: If I ever find myself the commander of a tank Paul. I'm taking that Decal joke. "Person Person Person, Bakery, Person"
iammorthos: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (2:41 from now).
Going_Medium: Try to unlock object permanence.
Didero: So the solution to getting defeated at war turned out to be winning the war!
PharaohBender27: That
PMAvers: That sure sounds like something that's going to get blown up.
manfred909: sergeHi
solsesshiro: So I only played (most of) the first game. What's different three games later?
TXC2: yes, like what a base should be able to do
PharaohBender27: Stupid return button! I meant, that's . . . not actually a lot of soldiers for a "massive base."
WizardZedd: Man...4 games in this series, far as I can tell, absolutely nothing has changed. This is basically identical to the first game. ;x
Didero: So again the solution to resource shortage was just... having more resources
incslayer: this is occupied territory technically we are in Federation territory
PharaohBender27: Then again, we just had a "major battle" with like 12 participants total, so . . .
Rhynerd: the grenadier troop is pretty new
Tiber727: From what I heard, they tried different types of VC games, and people didn't like them.
Lightningbro: I find it funny the two newest games have made the Tanks more... "characters" kinda
TXC2: 3000 men is like one Brigade
TXC2: if that
Didero: Seems like the top brass finally realised you're allowed to shoot back when attacked :P
Rhynerd: The americans?
TXC2: well he's clearly from the Navy
Alness49: "We made a mistake"
Zyme86: Cause marines are often super elite
Earthenone: i dont think we can throw the first stone when it comes to outfits
incslayer: WHAAT?
solsesshiro: @Lightningbro So when can I give my tank twintails?
cuttlefishman: game, plz
adi_pie: Raz, could you stop?
Cinntoastmin: UM
accountmadeforants: Got that Cybran technology, they gave their ships LEGS!
PharaohBender27: *FACEPALM*
Rhynerd: Raz, no.
adi_pie: I hope she breaks his jaw.
cuttlefishman: Raz, that's a superior officer
BloodnBullets: please get slapped...
TheMerricat: @WizardZedd this is actually happening at the same time as VC1 and 3 - we are just playing one of the other nations involved in the world war.
margieargie: Can we send him up unsupported next battle?
Lightningbro: How long until Raz is courtmashaled?
Alness49: Someone should teach Raz the word "Insubordination"
flameburstx: paul! spoilers!
ValtheDrake: something's gonna get broken, that's for sure
PharaohBender27: I'm getting Ozmafia flashbacks from that cutscene
splatty1: claude, your his CO... THATS YOUR JOB
incslayer: @Alness49 and "Sexual Harrassement"
Didero: "I just hope he won't get into trouble"? Claude, you're his commanding officer, you need to keep him out of trouble, that's your job!
TXC2: Charged with sexual assault, in the army....good fucking luck in the glasshouse son Kappa
solsesshiro: This looks suspiciously identical to the first game
red_shoes_jeff: @Alness49 Too many syllables.
Rhynerd: Not gonna change your squad up?
PharaohBender27: How astute of you, Claude! Truly, you are a master at the art of warfare! Kappa
WizardZedd: @TheMerricat Sure, but I would have expected them to move the mechanics of the game forward in some way. Improve it, add to it, smooth out the rough edges, something. But this just seems like they keep making the same game over and over. ;x
Didero: Um, research is usually done in research labs, not in frontline bases
Alness49: Can you manage Laser Guns? That would be fantastic!
WeedenProject: I feel like weapon R&D does not take place on the front line?
TheMerricat: @WizardZedd sometimes if you feel like you've perfected the formula... :-)
Lightningbro: (sighs) I hate when people ignore Tutorials, because it always leads later into "How do I do this thing" but maybe that's just personal bias.
Rhynerd: @Alness49 are there any valkyria in this squad with a proper valkyria weapon?
solsesshiro: @WizardZedd The game was pretty solid from the start, but I agree. At least some novel ideas
TXC2: what do you think Field testing is chat? Kappa
PandasAndPancakes: @rhynerd noy yet.
Alness49: To be fair, this game ain't gonna be played beyond today
ChaoticObserver: I would say training field should be something you look at real quick
ChaoticObserver: But only for a minute
Lightningbro: I meant to add "Though I understand given your limited timeframe"
Psychic_Ketchup: LRR are fantastic role models except when they're not Kappa
ChaoticObserver: Note here, experience is for ALL units of that type
TheMerricat: you are spending XP to upgrade your classes
Rhynerd: Yeah, one turn off of this game is how a chapter is typically 5 cutscenes and a mission
Didero: Psychic_Ketchup: They're a great example of how to (not) do everything! :P
solsesshiro: So... What's a Grenadier?
Alness49: "Soldier, you're going to sit and aim like you never sat and aimed before!"
Rhynerd: a mortar soldier
Rhynerd: they're new
PharaohBender27: Way to dance around the fourth wall there.
solsesshiro: Huh... That doesn't sound groundbreaking or anything
TheMerricat: scouts can get you a new potential
Despoiler98: can we unlock "anti-depressants"?
TXC2: I unlock that everyday :P
Rhynerd: he had social anxiety before this
PharaohBender27: Wait, Nature Lover? Is he also going to mourn all the flowers that get crushed?
Mister_BlueSky: I had that as a Day 1 unlock.
Lightningbro: Huh, they took out levelling Commanders. Interesting
Tiber727: This looks like a pre-video game society. Why would they have the phrase "leveled up?"
Rhynerd: don't want a new order?
TXC2: Mister_BlueSky it's a day zero patch :P
Despoiler98: why is there an audience cheering?
Fu4ow: @Tiber727 D&D is *super* popular
splatty1: Just do it! the Shia Lebeouf school of teaching
Fu4ow: or I guess just wargames, that makes some sorta sense as well
Alness49: Pyrophobia? For an artillery soldier?
TheMerricat: he's a furry fanfic writer.....
Cyberegg: you can fill multiple bars then level up
Psychic_Ketchup: He has the potential to be an unpopular author
Zu_o: Put the fire as far away from yourself as possible @Alness49
Tiber727: @Fu4ow I guess it works.
Lightningbro: @Mister_BlueSky I strangely developed that skill after I was finished with the advanced Tutorials.
Gnuttor: Hi Paul! Hi James! Hi chat!
PharaohBender27: "Actually, I don't. I was just planning on letting the Empire walk all over me."
TXC2: hello Gnuttor welcome
PharaohBender27: Hi, @Gnuttor!
Rhynerd: point into shocktrooper?
solsesshiro: Sniper best unit
Lightningbro: If you go to status you can see what those Traits mean.
TXC2: !I think he got THE POINT!"
BrindleBoar: So to speak
Gnuttor: @TXC2 , @PharaohBender27 :)
Earthenone: maybe someone will recognize him and shoot him?
Rhynerd: he writes stuff on the mortar shells
J4Y_4NDY: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:27:00.
Rhynerd: nobody likes recieving his writings
PharaohBender27: Maybe he writes mediocre accounts of the battles?
Lightningbro: I too am curious as to how "Unpopular Author" manifests into battle
TXC2: when out of ammo, he chucks remaindered copies of his novels Kappa
LuHeGi: if it is a wrap battle maybe
red_shoes_jeff: I'm back. Do we know why Claude got slapped yet?
Fu4ow: at least if he sneaks intel into his writing, no one will read it
Mister_BlueSky: If someone says "what are you writing" he drops what he's doing and talks their ear off for like an hour about all his "potential" ideas.
TXC2: red_shoes_jeff nope
Earthenone: you could always go to skirmish
Earthenone: to play with no story
J4Y_4NDY: How long was the tutorial?
TheMerricat: @J4Y_4NDY that long.
TXC2: J4Y_4NDY an hour ish
J4Y_4NDY: Dang
Rhynerd: So long story short: we have a mission to mark out tanks for Riley's artillery group to bomb during a heavy fog
Didero: J4Y_4NDY: I'm not entirely sure we finished the tutorial yet :P
J4Y_4NDY: 0_o
Mister_BlueSky: The tutorials are never over. Never.. over..
Rhynerd: Riley hates our guts but we're gonna get right into that camp and mark out every tank by rubbing our faces on anything that looks like a tank
Didero: Wait, is this the story mission or a skirmish?
Grevas13: This game totally looks like my jam.
Earthenone: skirmish
Rhynerd: oh, this isn't the story misssion?
Mister_BlueSky: Too much story, not enough mission.
Earthenone: they skipped enough cutscenes to have the option of the story mission then went to skirmish
TheMerricat: @Rhynerd skirmish.
Agu_Sakku: Panzer Vor!
TheMerricat: they are all scouts, this should go fast
red_shoes_jeff: Need to work on the timing of your dramatic gestures thee, Claude.

Earthenone: you are out of range
Earthenone: he has more range with a rifle than you do with a machine gun
umm_so_uhhh: Oh hey!
Despoiler98: oh hai guys!
GlennSeto: The lady sniper's poncho seems cut specifically to show off her ass.
Grevas13: so cheesy
Grevas13: i love it
Earthenone: snipers one liners are doomed to go unapriciated
GlennSeto: But maybe I'll feel ashamed for my words and deeds.
Fu4ow: is this Solas?
Earthenone: no one can hear them from so far away
Lightningbro: So, I just looked it up. "Unpopular Author" makes Connor's Defense fall if he's below half AP. HOWEVER "Immersive Writing" makes him have higher defense AND accuracy when below half HP. "Poor Logic" makes Connor occasionally just... "Choose" to deal less damage to tanks... FOR DRAMATIC TENSION... (Sighs) Connor...
Grevas13: fences of unobtanium
Didero: It's all the flowers at that soldiers feet that protected him
GlennSeto: Chat, the first Valkyria Chronicles has been in my Steam backlog since forever - does it still hold up?
PharaohBender27: Fences - the most impenetrable defense ever devised!
J4Y_4NDY: Fence OP pls nerf
TXC2: GlennSeto well the gameplay is exactly what you're seeing here, so maybe?
Agu_Sakku: i want to grab a copy of the first game on my ps3
PharaohBender27: Riley seems unsafely close to that tank for firing.
manfred909: HeadShot?
GlennSeto: @TXC2 Oh, this looks pretty sweet.
TehAmelie: >fire artillery on their snout to establish dominance
GlennSeto: I was worried the first might be a good deal less sophisticated.
Earthenone: from what i can see this adds one class to the game
Rhynerd: Yeah, the biggest chance I see between this game and the first VC is the grenadier
Earthenone: but i only played the first one
flameburstx: so far only difference i can see between vc1 and 4 is the mortar infantry
Earthenone: also in 1 it costs 2 actions to move your tanks
flameburstx: yes
Rhynerd: Oh right!
Grevas13: See, now, the problem with Laurent is that he can't inherit galeforce
flameburstx: i assume we unlock orders ata later point in the game
Earthenone: in general the size of the crosshair is how "accurate" you are
Earthenone: we have unlocked 1 order so far, and it is a bad one
Alness49: Lay off our motar waifu!

e_bloc: dude needs a wig
Earthenone: thats great
GlennSeto: A bandana would do.
Earthenone: i hope we can give this rookie a helmet
PharaohBender27: Next time we're at base, we acquire a tactical wif
TXC2: and this guy isn't punching the enemy....why?
PharaohBender27: *wig
red_shoes_jeff: Can we not get this man a hat?
red_shoes_jeff: Quickly Kai, give him your hat!
Didero: Protected by the flowers once again!
Earthenone: everyone knows flowers are a 5+ ward save
Gizmoloid: @TXC2 Maybe he's at the stage of his training just after his hair fell out but before the gains?
TheMerricat: last guy, just cap the flag
TXC2: Gizmoloid ah, fair
Rhynerd: We're listeneing to enemy chatter too?
morgoth_bauglyr: yes
e_bloc: guy running through war field: " what pretty flowers"
H1Lari0us: curtis is also concerned about the flowers
oyleslyck: I call that bald sniper "One Punch Man's cousin, One Shot Man."

Lithobraker: Booooo Adam! we want Golf!
Jonci_: Games that have a sequel in 2019
oyleslyck: The fun of this game is to optimize to see how few turns you can complete a mission
Rhynerd: be glad you didn't get anyone shot enough that you had to summon the dog
PharaohBender27: @Didero Hope you get better soon!
H1Lari0us: games that take place in 2019
Earthenone: i think medics pick up your not quite dead yet bodies
Didero: Thanks :)
Rhynerd: because that's how the medic works. somebody loses all their health and then you need to send a soldier to summon the medic to pick up your dying friend
Lithobraker: Can't you just use the Paul clones?

Banrael: BTW - also looking forward to trying that tea you mentioned :D
EJGRgunner: Paul's taking care of business.
EJGRgunner: Working overtime.
Rhynerd: long story short: we need to take this city 'cuz it's full of tanks. First we gotta find the tanks
AntiCrepuscular: Fake Tanks... Fanks?
Earthenone: Real Fake Tanks, more likely than you think
Rhynerd: because decoy tanks are in the same location, they're made of wood.
darkecologist: will we be greeted as liberators?
Banrael: "It's only a model"
TXC2: are they made of balloons, like the british ones? Kappa
Frednotbob: There are tanks drivers here!

Rhynerd: a shocktrooper will be useful, if just to act as covering fire to teammates
TrueSkorn: I got a free sub from a fan. I have to thank them
TXC2: how is Neige not an elf?
Rhynerd: because elves don't exist in this setting.
Rhynerd: unless you count the valkyria as elves
Rhynerd: but then again...
SunsetOcelot: Oh that tank, I miss it so much
forlornhope22: The problem with Godwin's law is it turns out there are still a lot of Nazis
Aenir798: I like how he does the hand motion a couple seconds after saying "Move Out"
Earthenone: im guessing that is because it takes longer to say "move out" in japaneese
red_shoes_jeff: "Why do we keep bringing this tank places tanks can't go!?"
Rhynerd: because the commander is in the tank
PharaohBender27: Our mission is to liberate this impressionist painting!
TXC2: Is claude putting his hand like that because he's telepathic? Kappa
Nereidum: Just get close.
Rhynerd: you need to get up to the tank so your soldiers can see if it's real
Earthenone: im guessing blue weak spot means its real
AntiCrepuscular: it's going "Rrrrrr" for "Rrrrreal tank"?
Rhynerd: just make sure to run from the tank once you've ID'd it if it's real
H1Lari0us: just realized
H1Lari0us: children, where are your helmets?
wicker_knight: "Hey, I think you're cute. I'll blow up that machine trying to kill you" Kappa
PharaohBender27: @H1Lari0us Only the Imperial swine wear helmets! Soliders of the Federation leave their heads free and fearless! Kappa
Earthenone: i think she is apogizing to you for missing
TXC2: "Sorry", huh she must be a Canadian sniper Kappa
AntiCrepuscular: it plank not tank?!
wicker_knight: So, I take it this is some cross between Advance Wars and Dynasty Warriors?
Hot_Leather_Daddy: they don't need helmets they're hard headed.
Rhynerd: it's more like XCOM and maybe Gears of War
PandasAndPancakes: I'm impressed that their plywood tank still made engine noises.
Jonci_: Those are some tight pants on her
Rhynerd: or that tabletop game called infinity
Swamplor: Just joined the stream and ... immediate butt
H1Lari0us: @PharaohBender27 thats fair lrrBEEJ
Earthenone: i wonder if they had someone pretending to make engine noises in there
PandasAndPancakes: Swamplor Best kind Kappa
wicker_knight: okay yeah, I can see Final Fantasy XCOM
PharaohBender27: @Earthenone Does record player technology exist in this universe? Maybe they set up recordings of tank noises inside
Swamplor: But seriously, why are we a sniper in assless chaps?
TXC2: the real tank was the one in our hearts Kappa
Jonci_: This isn't Final Fantasy XCOM?
Rhynerd: She's wearing assless chaps?
PharaohBender27: @Swamplor Because video games
TXC2: Because Japan
Rhynerd: I thought it was just a tight suit
red_shoes_jeff: @Earthenone Michael Winslow's needed work, okay?
TXC2: Rhynerd it is
wicker_knight: @Rhynerd a very, very tight suit
morgoth_bauglyr: mr pessimist
BleedingToast: hello paul and chat katesWave benginHi lrrAWESOME
TXC2: tight, two tone the 1930's
PharaohBender27: @BleedingToast Hello!
AntiCrepuscular: you just learned to lie down! :D
TXC2: hello BleedingToast welcome
morgoth_bauglyr: you did get em
Rhynerd: yeah, he ded
wicker_knight: this is a very weird mix of cartoony and gritty designs...
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 To borrow an Alex-ism, this game asks for a lot of "Sures" from its audience
Earthenone: that wasent so much "forcing them to their feet" as "forcibly removing their feet"
H1Lari0us: i like the transition from map to man
Rhynerd: Valkyria Chronicles is a bit of a roller coaster.
TXC2: PharaohBender27 indeed
Jonci_: I feel like I should have gotten into this series a long time ago. Looks like something I'd like
Rhynerd: it will open fire once you stand up
Rhynerd: run.
Earthenone: if it sees you, it will fire ar you
TXC2: tup tup tup tup
Chillie: oh them lurking tanks
cuttlefishman: Where is chair?
Earthenone: he did not seem to care
Rhynerd: chair is taking a break
TXC2: "no time for you old man"
cuttlefishman: Is chair broken?
Earthenone: where james goes, so too does !chair
BloodnBullets: is it a real tank?
wicker_knight: okay, overwatch fails to hit a target in open space from 10 feet away, definitely XCOM lrrBEEJ
EvilBadman: Chair had to get ready for GP Van
TXC2: ^
cuttlefishman: Is Chair going to be doing signings at GP Van?
EvilBadman: Unknown, keep an eye on Chair's twitter account
TXC2: Right, Crapshot idea, a vlog to PAX, from the perspective of a chair
Lord_Hosk: (arrested development voice over) he wasnt ok
ArcOfTheConclave: that man was just destroyed!
Nereidum: Now you can go around to the gate and open it.
morgoth_bauglyr: it's a tank?
Jonci_: Metal Gear?
ArcOfTheConclave: inb4 all of them are fake
lord_bry0n just subscribed with Twitch Prime. lord_bry0n subscribed for 18 months in a row!
lord_bry0n: something something witty, and seasons greetings
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, lord_bry0n! (Today's storm count: 29)
TheElrad: a fake tank so surpass Metal Gear
Rhynerd: we found one real tank so far
Earthenone: tank has a job now
Nekuia: Wooow, that one HP.
Rhynerd: can you drive over the survivor?
Nekuia: Sadly, it doesn't work that way...
Nekuia: HAHAHA. That works.
Rhynerd: it worked?
Earthenone: their real tank killed there real soldier
Nekuia: Friendly fire worked
margieargie: "Friendly fire, isn't"
Rhynerd: oh wow
morgoth_bauglyr: you can't kill by running them over. you can bump them around
Jonci_: Just as planned. Run him over to bump him into friendly fire
red_shoes_jeff: Yep
TXC2: the plan worked Kappa
Nekuia: Yeah, it sucks that you can't kill them, but pushing people around is super useful.
Earthenone: you can remove cover by running them over
Rhynerd: apparently running over a soldier is a great way to get his friends to shoot at him
Jonci_: World's luckily man survives 2 tank attacks, dies to the idiot in his team's tank.
Earthenone: hopefully the fog properly obscures his head
freshmaker__: I only just got here so I can only assume this is an original and funny joke that no one has made. I guess LRRMTG started early because that sure is a lot of GRN
BloodnBullets: so what can the engineer do?
Nekuia: Bigger heal, repair tanks and and fix sandbags.
TXC2: BloodnBullets restocks ammo
Earthenone: engineer resuplies heals and fixes broken things
Nekuia: They also carry more grenades... But that is rarely useful.
Rhynerd: they also have a fair amount of movement and a rifle that's either the same as or slighlty worse than the scout rifle
Nekuia: It's the same as a scout rifle, but the user tends to be worse with it.
BloodnBullets: so lancers are the only effective anti-tank infantry then?
Nekuia: Yes*
Rhynerd: yes
Earthenone: i got some with shocktroopers in 1
red_shoes_jeff: At the very least, could the two sides just use different frequencies?
Rhynerd: a shocktrooper shooting at the engine of a tank can deal some damage
Jonci_: I'm wishing for an easter egg where you get close to a tank and it flashes revealing Dio.
Ritaspirithntr: THIS is what I wish Fire Emblem's combat system was like!!!!
Featherweight_: Heya Paul, how are the ongoing adventures of turnip today?
Rhynerd: Hey, anyone ever played a tabletop game called Infinty?
Earthenone: it even has joint attacks like fire emblem :)
morgoth_bauglyr: @Rhynerd tes
morgoth_bauglyr: yes
Earthenone: @Rhynerd i have yet to play, i hear it is super weeb and have a couple minis from it
margieargie: I mean, you don't have any friendly fire for it to push you into, right?
Rhynerd: because i think the VC system would be a good way to make a video game of said tabletop
BloodnBullets: so can we call in the artillary teams on the tanks we have identified?
morgoth_bauglyr: the artillery team comes in part 2 of the mission
Nekuia: Oh man. Rhynerd. VC being open like G-mod thing would be kinda neat, honestly. It would work kinda well for table top games.
Rhynerd: at least in terms of how every soldier had a reaction and you can spend orders to make soldiers do multiple things in a turn
morgoth_bauglyr: haha that line
ArcOfTheConclave: ratta
RockPusher: ratta ratta ratta ratta
RockPusher: grn grn grn grn
Rhynerd: I should give infinity a shot next year.
TXC2: "sir, they're firing a lot of pokemon at us sir!"
BloodnBullets: i think a sniper heavy squad probably wasnt right for a scouting mission
RockPusher: and that is a butt so yeah, this is Valkyria Chronicles :D
TXC2: so the way she has her hat, she's meant to look like a cat yes?
Rhynerd: valkyria chronicles is known for its butts?
Nekuia: Yes...
Nekuia: Yes it is.
Rhynerd: I thought VC was better known for breasts.
Nekuia: Have you not seen Kai's butt?
TXC2: it's anime, they like both
Rhynerd: It's hard not to see kai's butt
Nekuia: Exactly.
Rhynerd: But that's one butt.
RockPusher: !findbutts
LRRbot: Behind you.
HisEvilDomain: they're specially telling you to scout more, so I'm guessing you capture all flags or there's one sneaky tank
RatekStormcrow: Wooden Doors are not known to stop tank shells
Rhynerd: I can think of a couple games that released some notable butts recently, whether I want to or not.
HisEvilDomain: depends on the game
Chillie: Wait, I know number 1 and two. What is 4?
Nekuia: That moment before the turret finally wheeled around to fire at you.
PharaohBender27: Poor Godwin
Nekuia: Watching you play this so safely, is kinda refreshing. Given how I just stormed in.
red_shoes_jeff: Tanks have mortars, don't they?
Nekuia: They do, but they suck.
Earthenone: they di!
TehAmelie: so many Ratatas
TehAmelie: i hope we have pokeballs
HisEvilDomain: that fence is impossible to vault
Earthenone: but overwatch is small arms only
Nekuia: The arch on them is really bad.
Rhynerd: yes, but they can't mortar fire in overwatch
TXC2: how much ammo does this guy have?
Rhynerd: you just fire the ragnaid
PharaohBender27: @Nekuia Man, I'm afraid to ask what sort of losses you suffered when you played
Nekuia: All of it TXC2
TXC2: Clearly
Nekuia: None. I A'd every mission first try...
morgoth_bauglyr: healing not gasoline
PharaohBender27: @Nekuia :O
Nekuia: I played every VC game we got over seas, and 4 is honestly the easiest one.
PharaohBender27: At least, I'm guessing that that's impressive

Rhynerd: can you climb that tower?
RebelliousUno: Can you not get into the tower
Nekuia: Honestly, once you know what to do, it's just a matter of doing it and not missing shots.
Rhynerd: you'll have to be touching the ladder to activate the tower climb action

HisEvilDomain: not in field of view of any unitsm so movement unknown
TXC2: 40% damage is not nothing
Nekuia: You can do it Paul. I believe in you! Find that tank or not tank.
RebelliousUno: tank gun
PharaohBender27: OW
Nekuia: Good job Raz. doing the one thing you are good at.
HisEvilDomain: tank gun to the chest "I'm fine"'
BloodnBullets: i think that was your dude at the start
BloodnBullets: or one of your dudes hiding in grass
Earthenone: it was raz yeah
Nekuia: Yeah, when in base you heal more HP start of round, but he was also couched so he took reduced damaged... And he is Raz so he is Raz. That has meaning, just a spoiler.
Earthenone: they cant fire at random? have they not seen this show?
RebelliousUno: o7 General Direction
azureHaights: They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance --
Rhynerd: No, she still hates Claude
Nekuia: She doesn't like him... BUt she likes the squad.
PharaohBender27: @azureHaights Nice reference there
BloodnBullets: no liking someone is different to being willing to leave them for dead
Rhynerd: she's giving him the benefit of the doubt for the people in the squad who she still likes
HisEvilDomain: Obey her rank of Fanciful Headband non-descript grenadier
Gizmoloid: Wait, wouldn't triangulating give an actual position rather than a general direction?
TXC2: "only Hugh can prevent Florist Friers"
Earthenone: set it to 420-69
Nekuia: Doing this part of the mission for A rank first play is super risky. Haha.
HisEvilDomain: approximate position depending on how you triangulate and where the towers you use are located
RebelliousUno: assuming the team are looking at the tower
RebelliousUno: and put it together
Jonci_: That's how panels work alright
voslan: 7.1.5.
RebelliousUno: and the enemy don't...move
TrueSkorn: 715
Nekuia: Also, you HAVE to use the snipers.
azureHaights: Naiko
Simonark: The clacks it is
TXC2: Gizmoloid that would depend on the Accreancy of the Triangulation
red_shoes_jeff: 7 1 5
Rhynerd: 715
TXC2: John 7:15
PharaohBender27: @RebelliousUno Not to mention, not just blow up the tower to stop them
rendelnep: @Earthenone katesNice katesNice katesNice
Rhynerd: those are indeed the towers.
morgoth_bauglyr: you dont actually only have to hit them
morgoth_bauglyr: -dont
Nekuia: Yeah, the game basically tells you what one to aim for too. It is super easy. But you do need to use the sniper to do the thing.
HisEvilDomain: 4+3... 4-3... 4 + (3/3)
RebelliousUno: I guess that one is easy enough
PharaohBender27: Oh hey, we only need to hit one number!
azureHaights: So we're playing One Away from Price is Right
Fu4ow: is this one of those clocks where the numbers flip?
Nekuia: Kai doesn't even have 5 rounds a clip. Gezz.
azureHaights: General Sound Effects Lady, do we have all five numbers right?
Simonark: To June 4th
RebelliousUno: Wow where did all the debris go
Rhynerd: he's hoping chilhood memories will provide artillery coordinates
cuttlefishman: chillihood memories?
cuttlefishman: delicious
Lord_ZYRK: "They. . . want me to shoot the belltower?"
TXC2: so fun story, the bible passage for john 7:15 is: "The people were surprised when they heard him. "How does he know so much when he hasn't been trained?" they asked."
TXC2: :P
Nekuia: Different tower.
red_shoes_jeff: Raz doesn't get a lot of things.
Nekuia: Raz gets what he needs to get... Shoot at.
darkecologist: ah yes, the area code for western Wisconsin. they want me to meet them there.
PharaohBender27: Are they going to actually explain how the hell a reference to Claude and Riley's past indicates the exact location of tanks?
wicker_knight: guessing it means something along the lines of "shoot here"
Nekuia: They do, I think...
Nekuia: Nice. you missed.
red_shoes_jeff: You need to get closer.
Rhynerd: I think the idea is more "bomb the area around this tower that's showing off some childhood memories>"
azureHaights: My eyes!
haseo_sora: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (1:12 from now).
Rhynerd: we'll find out when we finish the mission
Earthenone: even if they do, paul wukk skip it :P
RebelliousUno: You couldn't hit the broad side of a signal tower apparently
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: ohai folks. is this some tactical booty armor?
Nekuia: Yeah, I tried it, if you don't user a sniper, nothing happens.
Earthenone: and kai cannot die, or you auto fail
Rhynerd: yes
RebelliousUno: Somehow this will work?
Sertion: Don't you shoot the tanks on 7/15?
Featherweight_: july 15th is tanksgiving
Swamplor: Maybe sometimes it's January 98?
RebelliousUno: Boo Featherweight_
Earthenone: i was expecting a difrent ring bell code at least
Nekuia: It's a sign to Raily, who knows what that date means. So you are signally to her, because you can't radio in.
EvilBadman: Are the other tiles different, other than the 715?
Rhynerd: yes.
darkecologist: @Featherweight_ lol
PharaohBender27: Wait wait wait - if their comms are jammed, why are we getting radio chatter!?
Nekuia: It's the bad guys.
Nekuia: Not even joking, more of the half of the chatter is bad guys.

Rhynerd: Hey Raz, go shoot some scouts
PharaohBender27: Well yes that last one was, but it sounded like a "Federation" voice earlier - it seems they differentiate by having the Imperial troops sound gruffer
Grevas13: so neige is noire from fire emblem, without the alternate personality. is there a term for that character archetype?
RebelliousUno: All the murder she's doing
Rhynerd: the apologetic attacker?
Earthenone: i mean she is a child being told to murder
Rhynerd: then again, she only says sorry sometimes
Nightvalien28: she is pure as the driven snow, after killing about 30 men
BloodnBullets: one day she will have those cold dead eyes of a cold blooded killer
TXC2: she says sorry when she misses
Rhynerd is going into tvtropes
chrono2x: One Punch Man?
TXC2: Rhynerd no dont!
Grevas13: No, rhynerd, that's too dangerous
Saunabath: If only we had a hat for him to wear
Grevas13: we've already lost too many good people there
Rhynerd: Cowardly lion?
Nekuia: Yeaaah. Raz you did it. Good job.
rendelnep: katesRip Rhynerd. we hardly knew thee
TXC2: I wager theres a Tvtropes page for this game
Nekuia: AI is stupid. Sadly.
RebelliousUno: just running
Rhynerd: shrinking violet?
RebelliousUno: slowly running
Nekuia: Oh, right. Low rank Sniper. I was confused a moment.
PharaohBender27: Were you here earlier when a guy ran until he was like 10 feet in front of Raz and then got wasted?
Rhynerd: I am back from tvtropes and imagine neise is either a shrinking violet, a cowardly lion, or both
Nekuia: Raz got hit.
RebelliousUno: Ah good they're all leaving the tower
Nekuia: Good job. Raz.
red_shoes_jeff: Aladdin, put your fucking hat on.
CastleOtranto: Resupply Neige?
Earthenone: its nice of them to remind you incase you put the game down mid mission
Earthenone: if its like 1 all you need to do is touch her to refil ammo
Nekuia: Just get close.
RebelliousUno: I think it might be just getting close
Sati90: Hello bonus Paul! Thank you for shoring up the holiday gap.
HisEvilDomain: stand, there ws a prompt
TrueSkorn: Worked
NightChaos_: There was an ammo box graphic, it worked
HisEvilDomain: okay, I misseed it
Earthenone: yay teemwork!
red_shoes_jeff: JOLLY COOPERATION
TXC2: cooperation working together, DIG IT!
Earthenone: if its like the first out of range shots can still trigger co op attacks
Earthenone: if partner is in range
Rhynerd: good news is they might rush you next turn
RebelliousUno: "Too Easy" - Misses
TXC2: BS on that miss
Earthenone: it was too easy. it made him miss
PixelArtDragon: "Adjusting sights!" Oh wait.
RebelliousUno: That time it was easy
Sertion: Don't forget about the mission
RebelliousUno: Worth trying a move turn
TXC2: I think we should start moving other people up
Nekuia: Moving other people up? Heavens no. Clearly moved to many up.
RebelliousUno: Snipers are probably all that matters
RebelliousUno: just like XCom
Nekuia: Nah. Snipers are awesome, but not the most important...
PixelArtDragon: Is it just me, or would this game benefit a bit from a grid?
HisEvilDomain: would the guys at the top need to resupply soon?
RebelliousUno: well considering they're all that can hit the towers
TXC2: I think being free form is to this game benefit
RebelliousUno: It is a little hard to gauge how far you can move though
Earthenone: so do i, a grid would not line up well with the actetic in my opinion
TXC2: RebelliousUno fair
Rhynerd: look at this firing line
Earthenone: ohh yeah you definitly need to learn what the game thinks is cover and what it dosent, but most cover based games are like that
PixelArtDragon: Maybe some amount of snap-to when within a certain range? It would help with those "am I close enough" questions.
Nekuia: The game needed to be worked on a bit more, they just slapped the old VC 1 remaster engine on VC 4, which on it's self was an updated engine from VC 1's first release. Bleh.
red_shoes_jeff: Capture?
Earthenone: capture the flag behind you
Earthenone: :)
Nekuia: It's Fine. Raz will just be back attacked and die. and the world will be saved.
Nereidum: A suggestion...try getting a sniper into the sniper nest tower you just went past.
PixelArtDragon: He also has a wife an kids, but that's besides the point :P
Nekuia: You can put anyone in there. Just doesn't help anyone but a sniper. Haha
Earthenone: you can put anyone there, a sniper will be useful there though :)
RebelliousUno: Getting the snipers up there is really good
TXC2: wow we got up that ladder fast
Nekuia: You diiiid it.
RebelliousUno: lrrGOAT there
Milambus: it kinda makes sense that a thin wooden fence provides no cover
PharaohBender27: lrrHORN
RebelliousUno: ding ding ding ding ding
Parkes04: these snipers are really bad at sudokui
Katgurl72: Hello
HisEvilDomain: this code is very vague to affect everything so precisely
Sati90: That was an incredibly clean demolition
TXC2: hello Katgurl72 welcome
RebelliousUno: Some how our fellows back in RT managed to figure out what on earth 715 meant
H1Lari0us: yeah
H1Lari0us: why not just bomb the entire city
TXC2: RebelliousUno presumably a grid ref
Katgurl72: I was gifted a sub to this channel the other day, so hello and thanks @txc2
HisEvilDomain: see it was there, hear the bells figure out the code instantly and triangualate precise artillary
Rhynerd: no, it's literally a reference to a village festival Clause, Riley, Raz, and kai would go to.
PharaohBender27: @H1Lari0us Maybe because this is a Federation City they're liberating?
H1Lari0us: fair
Milambus: they mentioned a date though
PixelArtDragon: Maybe it's 7x1x5?
Earthenone: i thought the bell ringing would change, but the date would stay the same
morgoth_bauglyr: rank is based on the number of turns it took you
RebelliousUno: were there tanks that happened to be tanks
PharaohBender27: @Rhynerd :*facepalm*
Rhynerd: the cutscene will try and explain it.
RebelliousUno: and couldn't they have just moved the tanks
Milambus: maybe the next episode expains?
Fu4ow: it's just "only person X could set *that* date" and that's it?
Styxseus: How does that translate into "Shoot THIS tank, not THOSE tanks" ? Yeah
Rhynerd: I can't.
Nekuia: I said it earlier. It was a sign to Raily, who'd understand that it was a sign from Squid E.
HisEvilDomain: was there an artillary shelling game at the festival??
Styxseus: Since all three signals/codes where the same
RebelliousUno: Ah yes the traditional blow up the tank game
RebelliousUno: right next to "Hook-A-Duck"
RebelliousUno: and the Ring Toss game
Fu4ow: he did keep saying coordinates though
RebelliousUno: !russel
HesGotNoPants: real tanks or go home, paul has no time for cardboard shenanigans
unturnscryflunge just subscribed with Twitch Prime!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, unturnscryflunge! (Today's storm count: 33)
Nekuia: In NA the best score is A in JP the best score is S. Both have the same turns to make the rank, but to get S, you need to kill everyone. Kinda sad, we don't have that but oh well.
Earthenone: !bib
Earthenone: !birb
LRRbot: Peck your beak!
Rhynerd: admittedly, being able to change the signs to the coordinates would have been cool but I imagine the devs either though that would take too long or liked the village festival idea more.
Sati90: Hey guys, this is Russel...
PixelArtDragon: "I have to see a horse about a man..."
HesGotNoPants: gather parts is code for adult time
Nekuia: Both...
Rhynerd: it's about to be explained
PharaohBender27: "I can slap you around some more!"
unturnscryflunge: Hey friends. no offense intended b/c i <3 Paul, but is Lrr mtg cancelled or postponed today?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: july 15th is 7/15
PixelArtDragon: July 15th? You mean 15/7? Kappa
HisEvilDomain: I'd understand it if it was the bell ringing was maybe a clock face reference but that would only give one part of the coordinates
RockPusher: because, Anime lrrBEEJ
Earthenone: canceled
gualdhar: the tank positions happened to be the other two sets of numbers on each tower I think
PharaohBender27: @unturnscryflunge Cancelled - most of the crew's going to Vancouver
Nekuia: It's more of a "Bomb this area" So really if the tanks where just not by the bell tower, they'd be safe.Haha
Earthenone: all mtg players are in route to magiccon
HisEvilDomain: but the same amout of rings each time
TheElrad: And now we come top the now kiss part of this steam
TXC2: unturnscryflunge cancled, LRR is going to the GP
TXC2: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (48m from now).
rendelnep: now kith
Nereidum: I assume that maybe the idea was that they also set the other coordinates on each tower, but just didn't include that in the gameplay, maybe?
unturnscryflunge: right on. thanks friends!
PharaohBender27: That still doesn't explain how that reference provides the coordinates!
wicker_knight: it would make sense if the signal was "carpet bomb near the tower"
wicker_knight: but obviously it's not
BloodnBullets: im going to go with it wasnt about identifying exact coordinates, just identifying which tanks were real, i.e. the ones around the towers
PharaohBender27: @Nereidum I feel like it's just a giant "Sure" we're supposed to swallow, but I can't swallow it.
Nightvalien28: it could be done in a more military way instead of random emotional magic
HisEvilDomain: maybe Nereidum, it's just very surreal to me how they're clearly using a thought process to explain the characters actions but stop halfway through
Rhynerd: Yeah, if the bottom two things provided coordinates, it would make more sense.
TheElrad: handholding? I wasn't prepared for that much lewdness
Nereidum: Since the snipers only get 3 shots without a reload, they couldn't really have you shoot a bunch of numbers on each tower to set all of them, anyway, I guess.
Nekuia: Whoa, why do we need Military in our Anime gun shooting game.
Sertion: What if the festival had been in October? :o
RebelliousUno: So a reddit thread suggests that the other two rows are co-ords for the tanks...just that setting that up is glossed over
MrSVCD: I know of a artillery unit in Sweden that also was a hunting party so they referenced kills as coordinates. "That big moose bull in 1994, 500m west."
Chillie: #empireDidNothingWrong
Psychic_Ketchup: Oh no someone set fire to the Reine!
Earthenone: that makes sense uno
PharaohBender27: @Sertion Then the squad would have been screwed, I guess.
TXC2: Adele has set fire to the Reine Kappa
jakale: curses you nameless empire
Rhynerd: No, we wanted to take the city and use it as a camp
Sertion: @PharaohBender27 Lucky
Earthenone: and we need the first row to confirm that message is coming from us and not them
PixelArtDragon: Yay, caring for the comms officers!
Rhynerd: and to claim all that comms tech that the imperials had
Earthenone: she is pyrophobic
Sati90: Adele working with the empire: confirmed! DAMN YOU ADELE!
Nekuia: Fire no dad. Dad? DAAAADD!
Earthenone: remember
PixelArtDragon: Boldy stand!
PharaohBender27: Oh, is this a PTSD episode?
Despoiler98: How did agents "douse the whole city" with NAPALM?!
Saunabath: Her dad is fire
Despoiler98: That's now how napalm work!
RockPusher: ……
Rhynerd: now you can look into the past
Nekuia: I also like how being scared of fire, makes you take like literally the next step of fire.
teh_v: Read the room game
TXC2: teh_v it profoundly doesn't
Nekuia: Go form burning to just exploding it.
red_shoes_jeff: That gear-change gave me whiplash...
Ba_Dum_Tish: Yeah this is cut scenes the game
Sati90: lrrWOW dramatic tension? What tension?
tapdancingbeavers: Hello all lrrAWESOME
HisEvilDomain: I think the writers were shown Saving Private Ryan or something and then locked in a room until they were done
TXC2: hello tapdancingbeavers welcome
Nekuia: Yeah, basically. Skirmishes tend to just be reused maps with a different set up.
PharaohBender27: @tapdancingbeavers Hello!
Sati90: Looks like it
HesGotNoPants: lrrAWESOME hello muffin lrrAWESOME
Earthenone: skirmishes tend to be regular fights on story maps if i recall
Earthenone: from 1
Saunabath: @HisEvilDomain This is basically Band of Animu Brothers
HisEvilDomain: uuuugh, I had forgotten that existed, my brother was obsessed with it
TXC2: Man Band of brother is like 18 years old :P
Lord_ZYRK: Band of Aniki
Nekuia: OH man, you have Railey now usable? Rip the game
Fu4ow: are these names custom?
Nekuia: No.
HisEvilDomain: I think I'd have watched it more if they had companion skills and plywood tanks
Fu4ow: Jean Matrix is a bold choice then
Sati90: Oh is Riley OP OP?
PixelArtDragon: Cast an invisible spell!
RebelliousUno: Ah yes the hand gesture allways useful
Nekuia: Her class is.
PharaohBender27: @HisEvilDomain @TXC2 Fun fact, I once went to an event featuring one of the actual people that show was based on a few years back.
HisEvilDomain: ooooh
Nekuia: Used right, they break this game utterly in hal.
Earthenone: mortars with overwatch fire seems a bit much yeah :)
Nekuia: half*
TXC2: PharaohBender27 really? cool
HisEvilDomain: now actual history is interesting
MostCallMe__Tim: isnt it supposed to be magical cards? Or is paul having too much fun?
Earthenone: magical cards are canceled, all magical people are on a boat
TXC2: MostCallMe__Tim no mtg today, everyones going to GP van
TXC2: instead we have adam playing Ashen, basically all the reat of the week :P
TXC2: *rest
RebelliousUno: skadoosh
Lyannen: Are you sure :D
Earthenone: well we have adam for the rest of the week, he might beat ashen or decide to gold or something
RebelliousUno: Tanks drive like a steakhouse
Friedent: I just got here. It looks like Paul is playing a JRPG tank sim... how wrong am I?
RockPusher: GP Van sounds like a road trip vehicle…
Earthenone: @Friedent 0
RockPusher: Road Quest 2: The GP Van lrrBEEJ
HisEvilDomain: Ashen is cool and Adam is great, I approve of this emergency programming
HisEvilDomain: very accurate Freident
Nekuia: Oopph. Close to gettnig that. Dang.
RebelliousUno: You did like half the damage on it though
Nekuia: If this was VC1 you would have hit the sky box.
TXC2: Friedent not compleatly, it's more a x-com tactitcs game, but with first person shooting
RebelliousUno: so it's not all bad
BloodnBullets: can riley hit it over the building
BloodnBullets: ?
Nekuia: First person shooting? You mean, third person.
PharaohBender27: @Friedent Add infantry and cutscenes, and you're correct
Nekuia: Yes she can
TXC2: Nekuia the sniping is first person no?
HisEvilDomain: considering how many shots people can take, I count them as bishi-tanks
EvilBadman: @Nekuia it has both 1st and 3rd, if you want to be technical. :D
RebelliousUno: You really need a grenade or rocket for the tank
TXC2: but yes 3rd person shooting
Nekuia: Nope! It's barrel person. The aiming in this game is really not good.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Perivale! (Today's storm count: 34)
RebelliousUno: It's more RPG Aiming than anything else
TXC2: if the aiming was too good, the game would be too easy really
Nekuia: If you put yourself back to a pole and fire forward, they AIM for the pole because it's on screen in the way.
red_shoes_jeff: No, he WON'T feel a thing!
morgoth_bauglyr: the aiming is good. when you move into range
morgoth_bauglyr: like 5m from the target
PixelArtDragon: Can you accidentally run over your own prone soldiers?
TXC2: Right chat I'm off
RebelliousUno: I feel like yes
morgoth_bauglyr: yes. but it will only push them around
RockPusher: later TXC2
RebelliousUno: Or deliberately
tapdancingbeavers: Bye @TXC2
Sati90: I assume the glowy bit is the WEAKPOINT tm?
TXC2: Goodnight Everybody, and thanks for streaming Paul
PharaohBender27: Bye, @TXC2!
Earthenone: you could in 1, would remove them from cover
red_shoes_jeff: Did he just say "M'lady?"
HisEvilDomain: apparently tanks are made of neoprene, as ramming an enemy unit on 1 HP did nothing except cause friendly fire to kill it
Sati90: Sudden chivalry surprises everyone
BloodnBullets: start advancing a scout to make the grab?
PixelArtDragon: @HisEvilDomain Maybe they're made of plot device?
Earthenone: i think it just accepts that no one would actually stand still and get run over by a tank
LiveFaust: His defense went up because the fedora covered his shiny head.

BloodnBullets: you basically slapped him in the face with that grenade
HisEvilDomain: that could be the case, we have a lot of interesting effects like blue sparkly grenades and healing hass
Chillie: Noooo, the lamp stand D:
HisEvilDomain: *gas
Nekuia: I've never tried that, but I wouldn't be shocked if you zip in this game.
Earthenone: you should be able to spawn guys on flag from this veiw
morgoth_bauglyr: you can retreat them and redeploy them elsewhere
CastleOtranto: Put a deployed person back in a base and move them to a new one
RebelliousUno: yeah is it a retreat and redeploy
Nekuia: Oh, yeah no. You can retreat from one base (If in the base it costs no points.) then spawn them else where, but yeah, no just moving.
Sati90: Ohhh tricky move
Nekuia: You need to use a menu to do it
Earthenone: correct
Nekuia: Highlight a character and puse F
morgoth_bauglyr: yes it costs a point
HisEvilDomain: but it would be good for snipers and those with low movement
HisEvilDomain: so it's something I guess
Nekuia: High light a character and push F key, it opens a menu, if at base you can retreat for free.
Nekuia: Railey, was to far to do that move anyway.
Earthenone: yes
Nekuia: Yeah, you need one CP to call for them on the map.
Nekuia: And it takes a turn for them to spawn.
Earthenone: zuko
Earthenone: what is prince zuko doing here?
Earthenone: :P
HisEvilDomain: being a prophet
HisEvilDomain: clearly
Lyannen: He is there to fire at you
PharaohBender27: Is it really wise to put a prophet on the front lines? Kappa
RebelliousUno: he should have seen it coming
RockPusher: based tree
1MrGhost: Never underestimate the power of the tree!
Chillie: ahahahah
Sati90: “he said as he set up an ambush”
RebelliousUno: He did see that coming
Earthenone: well heIS a prophet
Nekuia: I need to bounce and make dinner, I believe in you Paul. You can do the thing.
Despoiler98: damnit the enemy isn't following the RULES
red_shoes_jeff: "Too easy." *IS SHOT REPEATEDLY*
H1Lari0us: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 2:32 PM
HisEvilDomain: it was so easy he felt shooting would be showing off
Gypsy_Supreme: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Adam's Gamehaus (So begins three glorious days of the Gamehaus! Game: Ashen) at Thu 03:00 PM PST (26m from now).
GDwarf: Oh, what? So sorry I missed the start of this!
Gypsy_Supreme: !advice
LRRbot: Make an honest moral inventory of yourself.
HisEvilDomain: "surprise attack"
red_shoes_jeff: SURPRISE! lrrCOW
RebelliousUno: I wonder if he saw that coming
tapdancingbeavers: I don't know, a tank driving up and shooting would surprise me
Earthenone: suprise attack should mean he cant duck
Lyannen: Surprise tank
BlueChloroplast: Sneaky tank :p
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: Surprise! You got TANK'D
RebelliousUno: it's not a new reality show
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie giggles
RebelliousUno: TANK'D existss
RebelliousUno: it's about making Fish Tanks
GDwarf: Man, this is definitely Valkyria Chronicles music, I'm glad, the soundtrack to the first one was great
Featherweight_: jimmy jams and the prank protral
RebelliousUno: I saw them put a fish tank in the back of a car once
Sati90: @rebelliousuno are they surprising fish tanks?
Nekuia: @GDwarf I am just sad that 90% of the music in this game is just VC 1
PharaohBender27: @RebelliousUno That seems underwhelming compared to Paul's idea
HisEvilDomain: TANK'D is a very distressing show. So much money
GDwarf: Nekuia That's not a flaw to me. :P
RatekStormcrow: Look at the surprised faces as they are getting TANKE'D with 105 mm of pure FUN
Nekuia: I never said it was a flaw GDwarf. I just wish they did more for the game.
GDwarf: How's the plot in this one? VC1 kinda lost the thread, but the premise of this one seems like it's got pottential.
Nekuia: It's... VC1 if the plot happened backwards.
Chillie: lrrBEEJ
adi_pie: I didn't think we had invented invisible walls back in the first World War.
Nekuia: That is the fastest way to explain the plot. It starts so bad and slow, but kinda picks up nicely bu the end.
adi_pie: Pardon, World War 1.6 HD Remix.
Earthenone: can we nickname riely "shelly"
GDwarf: Nekuia So...everyone starts out giving up on being special so as to fit in, before abandoning that idea and embracing how awesome they are? :P
RebelliousUno: Go around the other way?
Nekuia: Tank is just in the way, Good use of Corners.
lifecharacter: This seems like the sort of game that needs a movement reset function.
RebelliousUno: poor scout
RebelliousUno: 2hp!
adi_pie: Ha.
Earthenone: 2 is not 0
GDwarf: 2 HP! XD
Nekuia: GDwarf... Yes. I almost wish that was a joke.
Nekuia: The main cast is also from Galia. Just like VC1 because they did nothing original.
GDwarf: Nekuia Wait, what? I was joking, but if it walks back the "it's better to give up on being special to fit in" message of VC1 then I'm here for it. :P
Iperithon: mine now! no flag, no country!
Sati90: Flag: blue’d
Earthenone: you got a B on your Vexilology Exam
PharaohBender27: @GDwarf You missed the mission where they literally communicated where artillery should blow up enemy tanks by referring to a *festival a bunch of them went to as children*
GDwarf: PharaohBender27 ...Suddenly it's Final Fantasy VIII? :P
RebelliousUno: The medal is the award the telescope is a chore
TrueSkorn: MORE!
BlueChloroplast: <3
Sati90: So you can look at your medal from the battlefield
Banrael: Then guys in full platemail
TheElrad: guys with knifeguns
frozenphoenix7: The "bat rope"

RebelliousUno: plus he hits really hard
Lyannen: Why would you want that?
fiftymcnasty: The secrets of bats are lost on batman
PharaohBender27: Actually, maybe not, now that I think of it?
PharaohBender27: Whoops
PMAvers: Maybe a metal bat-bat with a taser or something embedded in it?
Sati90: A high tech bat that can crack skulls forever
ArcOfTheConclave: Replace the Battery. What's a tery?
mrcontroll: "Robin, get the bat" "the what?" "sigh..

Earthenone: @JohnLockeCole anime x-com, also magic iscanceld as all players are on a boat to play magic
BlueChloroplast: Sleigh Ride is very good. I don't like the ones with sugar bits.
aleriacarventus: omg that root beer tea was so good
JohnLockeCole: How did they like Valkyria?
player0x01: "Root Beer Tea"... sounds awesome :)
walkwithoutrhythm: I had a really good tea a while back with cocoa nibs and chilies. It was surprisingly spicy but very tasty
PigmyWurm: wouldn't that just be Burch bark tea?
Featherweight_: rootbeer flavor is a bark
Sati90: It... sure was Root Beer
LimeJester: I think that was designed to be made as an iced tea. XD
Phailhammer: cya :)
Riandisa: Thanks for the stream, Paul!

Amentur: Is Adam playing all that Ashen with Funko?
BlueChloroplast: w00t
frozenphoenix7: It's a few weeks off, but do you know if there's any interest from the crew on doing Kingdom Hearts 3 fora Newday Tuesday?
Justin_Bailey: I'm guessing that would be Ben if it happens @frozenphoenix7 ?
RockPusher: Bye Paul gabyHi lrrSLOTH
Featherweight_: Its a good card bront
frozenphoenix7: Ben said on his personal stream he wouldn't be doing as such @Justin_Bailey and wanted to save Kingdom Hearts 3 entirely for his personal stream.
Featherweight_: it damn near killed me
Justin_Bailey: Ah ok cool. Don't catch his streams often enough to have heard that, but he's certainly the crewmember most into KH3
Alness49: Ben has since said he would be starting on New Day, and then continuing on his streams
BlueChloroplast: @Featherweight_ <3
Featherweight_: "we"
Justin_Bailey: (from what I gather, at least)
frozenphoenix7: Did he? Last I knew he was planning on doing it solely on his personal streams, but cool.
Suffix: Featherweight_ - you're awesome.
PMAvers: Paul made this.
Suffix: I mean. All credit to you, Paul.
Suffix: If you hadn't asked it wouldn't have been done.

Engi_Laru: Am I to guess the "LRRMTG" Stream on the calendar on their website is wrong?
Lyannen: Probably.. blame James
Justin_Bailey: @Engi_Laru from what I remember, the recommendation in terms of the schedule is to use the Events tab above. The calendar on the LRR page isn't really in sync with the actual schedule
