togashinaruta: At least I got a price match on it
Dared00: In some UK Tescos, it was down to 25 pounds
Questhere: didnt someone hack a snes classic to play PS games it it managed to do a better job?
jadedcynic pulls out a bugle and plays "Taps" for the PS Classic...
AntiCrepuscular: yup
TheMoatman: It's gone down even further now
mtvcdm: Nintendo is off in its own world, taking care to do their things properly. Sony sees dollar signs, goes for the quick cash-in and doesn't know how to do what Nintendo did.
Riandisa: Some people got it for $30ish with some price match juggling
Vampiricsloth: it didn't have the best ps1 game on it so i didn't get it.
Vampiricsloth: Legend of Dragoon
PixelArtDragon: "We had to do this so that our corporate overloards will think they understand what they're doing."
togashinaruta: I thought it was going to have tekken 1,2 and 3 - It just had 4
Metric_Furlong: "Maybe if we supported this thing in any way-" "No! Market has spoken, we're pulling the plug"
PMAvers: Sort of like EA and ports to Nintendo consoles. "Well, we put out a game that's more expensive and missing features than the other consoles, looks like no one wants these."
Foxmar320: Yeah if they mark it down to like $30 then maybe
AntiCrepuscular: savage burn from Heather :D
Jorge4hg: The hardware is pretty decent
tocu: NES and SNES are the 1 and 1a of consoles all time and are in an era were the graphics hold up and nintendo has most the games on lockdown so its not like you have the games purchased on your pc
TheMoatman: It's literally just pcsx isn't it?
mtvcdm: The thing about classic consoles, I played esoteric enough stuff as a kid that none of them ever really match in their included titles the stuff I actually played.
jadedcynic: Sony - if people will buy a thing someone else makes, but not buy the same sort of thing YOU make, make the deduction as to what the only variable affecting the result is...
Mangledpixel: it won't make a very good paperweight, unlike the other mini consoles it doesn't have weights in it to give it some heft
togashinaruta: It's honestly not as bad as the internet makes it sound - 60ish is a good price for it
brainbosh: "Playstation 0" "I have 0 Playstation 0's"
mtvcdm: SNES Classic came close, with Kirby's Dream Course and Super Star, but wasn't *quite* there.
Akaiatana: What you folks need to do is photoshop Playstation classic into an old photo of Paul
togashinaruta: I set it up at work and no one noticed that any of the games were PAL
Dared00: I mean, just a year ago Sony's CFO said himself that he has no idea why people would ever like to play old games
Jorge4hg: @Dared00 oof
OmnipotentTrevor: I hate that for the playstation classics. They add games to the PSN classics, in some cases using that to judge how much people still like the IP, but then only have them available for the PS3 which has a smaller user base every day and which many people might not bother with because of how close the servers are to death.
Lord_Hosk: During the development of Serious Sam, he was known as "upbeat sam" but the smile kept looking creepy, so they gave him a straight face and changed the name.
mtvcdm: When an NES revamp comes out with Super Dodge Ball, Tecmo Cup Soccer Game and Base Wars on it, call me.
Mr_Dirty: Wee need an object get a crate?
Metric_Furlong: crates and sewer levels were the two perenial sticking points
DigitalSeahorse: yup
Ukon_vasara: crates: something you never see except for in every single video game ever
ThorSokar: oh, it's a specific crate, you know it when you see it
DigitalSeahorse: he liked the game of only crates
Mangledpixel: and the barrel, aka the round crate
TheMerricat: when in real life have you seen a crate.
Akaiatana: Specifically it is a wooden crate made out of 2v4s regardless of the setting (scifi, etc)
Lord_Hosk: Basewars... always give your guys laserguns, and then you just steal every base.
Foxmar320: TheMerricat when I worked for UPS
togashinaruta: I work in IT consulting - we see back rooms full of crates all the time. one of them even had a hummer next to all the crates
TheMoatman: I mean when in real life have you seen a 200 foot tall stone golem
Earthenone: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: an honestly acquired Bump in the Night
TacitusVigil: How does Boxnard feel about crates?
RealGamerCow: I need to take a picture of the shipping department where I work. Wooden crates abound, and crowbars!
Akaiatana: You see Crates in Rhythm games... periodically Kappa
Ba_Dum_Tish: As someone who worked in the freight industry I did see them
Nuurgle: can we start shipping things in crepes?
tocu: I thought the whole point of MGS 5 was to steal all the crates from the world and remove them for the betterment of all humanity ?
Gypsy_Supreme: As someone who has done some Museum work, crates are used there ALL the time.
natsunokaze: I had testing equipment sent from a parts supplier in India that came via a crate. Proper old looking thing too.
brainbosh: If it's not a warehouse or art gallery there probably wouldn't be crate there. :/
Jay_Blanc: 90% of all Video Games take place in the shipping and distribution sector.
jadedcynic: ohhh, the old smuggler's trick
PixelArtDragon: A lot of machinery comes in crates.
Mangledpixel: time to revive this ooold image:

natsunokaze: @thefileclerk Seriously?
jadedcynic: yeah, I remember hearing about a guy that would drive across the turkish border in a Rolls Royce, with a jar of nails, a jar of molasses, and a jar of sand in the trunk; customs would search the car all over, and find NOTHING amiss...except this 'vibe' that he's up to no good. They have to let him through...then next week, he shows up again: Rolls, jars of inoccuous items in trunk, SEEMS like he's smuggling, but nothing can be found. This keeps up for months, and eventually a customs officer sto

Creideiki_SE: @NovaTiempo Neat. And then a couple of months until we get pretty pictures...
H1Lari0us: its probably just competetive megaman
jadedcynic: wait, do you mean the Olympics are over?
mtvcdm: It's like Madden.
NovaTiempo: First picture is back already - its 4x4 pixels. :p
cosarprime: Street Fighter is probably like WW2 shooters there.
TacitusVigil: I mean, LeBron James could play himself in those 2K18 games, right? :P
TheMerricat: Capcom ProTour in SF universe = Bison's tournament.
togashinaruta: WWE wrestlers tend to play other characters
Ba_Dum_Tish: Yeah it would probably be released yearly by EA like other sports titles
mtvcdm: Guile complaining to the devs how his character only got an 87 rating this year.
ggodopaste: did anyone ever watch Street Fighter The Later Years?
DigitalSeahorse: like Sailor V in Sailor Moon
togashinaruta: but voice actors tend to be excited to play themselves, so i think it's a toss-up
Lord_Hosk: I mean... Sports players play sports games. NBA pros play NBA 2KXX
CaptainSpam: Rocket League is still selling well? Impressive.
Ukon_vasara: ooh, i love that Warframe is in this "games youd expect" apparently
TheMerricat: @ggodopaste was that the YouTube series? is so, did they ever finish it?
Jay_Blanc: Oh... Incidentally, you all should probably watch the Netflix Anime 'High Score Girl'.
HesGotNoPants: as nash: how did m. bison kill me? *plays as m. bison to learn his move set*
ggodopaste: @themerricat They did finish it! iIt was good!
EricTheOrange: Counter Strike GO is 2008 I think

Akaiatana: Paul: Blizzard cancelled the Esports league for Heroes of the Storm, Blizz' moba
RockPusher: Guess I'm not commenting on Blizzard stuff then
mtvcdm: You make too much of a ruckus in Twitch chat they can go find your
Earthenone: also theoreticly harder to bots
Krokaar: all the hate from diablo immortal is probably a part of it, at least from what has happened in their last two live streams
Antimuffin: Wait.....Blizz is getting tied to Twitch?
togashinaruta: It's an attempt at accountability
Ukon_vasara: some of the banned words they had were pretty silly tho
tocu: Esports channels tend to have some of the worse time with modification so adding an extra layer to get in weeds out alot of the nonsense
togashinaruta: @Antimuffin They've had that since Oct, at least
Mr_Dirty: enforce rules or force you into their store both make sense
Metric_Furlong: Krokaar there's also been some very bad stuff that was typed in chats with Hearthstone related streams they've done in the past
tocu: after that accountability could help a ton as well
Krokaar: ah dang
H1Lari0us: i think this is a good move from blizz
LbxAni: everyone keeps talking about Blizzard wanted to censor people, but what I see with this story is that if Battle.Net is linked to Twitch I can get Twitch Loot drops easier without worrying about going AFK or whatever
Antimuffin: oh I see you won't be able to comment on Blizzard streams without account tie, got it'
mtvcdm: Yes. Let humans mod this pls.
Ba_Dum_Tish: The greater internet theory
tocu: like when they added follower mode it had a bump in helping with bots for a bit
TheMerricat: old blizzard, I'd be all for this. today's blizzard, hell no i wouldn't trust them not to use it to control pr
RockPusher: Accountability for actions vs building social credit infrastructure… I have conflicting opinions
Insert_code: I think heather is more correct, I don’t see banning people on going well for blizzard in terms of platform growth
Mr_Dirty: But math runs the robots and math cant be wrong... whats wrong with having a computer do it?
DigitalSeahorse: haha yes! down with TOS breakers
jadedcynic: Heather - No one READS a EULA; it might be IN the Terms *already* :P
Insert_code: @mr_dirty ask rainbow 6 fans who had an autobahn on certain words in game.
shamblingkrenshar: Yeah the chat for those events got... toxic is a good word here. So I can see why they want to try something that might maybe make it less of a dumpster fire.
EricTheOrange: Personally I'll take anything to stop people being assholes
ritchards: So what you are saying is , if you are going to be silly, make a fake account first
silverfur64: blizzard hasn't done a lot of perma bans in a while
HesGotNoPants: @loadingreadyrun there have been court rulings on this, if you've paid they should be able to sue to get their accounts back
Foxmar320: I know a lot of people whos Battlenet id is their real name ;)
Insert_code: Autoban* not a German highway
TheMerricat: @hesgotnopants what country.
jadedcynic: @silverfur64 so they're due for another 'flurry'? ;)
LbxAni: you've already linked Twitch to your Battle Net if you claimed Twitch Prime Loot boxes, so the accounts are connected
thomturtle: If you get banned from a gym, you're not getting the money back, it makes sense to me...
jadedcynic: ^^^
HesGotNoPants: @themerricat us ruling

MostCallMe__Tim: Trying to find the article I read a few weeks ago, but did anyone read about game devs in the EU unionizing? I'm wondering if I was just seeing things because I would have expected Jim to be all over it
tocu: @HesGotNoPants for the true perma banned from blizzard people (which I only know of like 3) they got rebanned within a day of the purchase so could go about normal means to get the money refunded.
Ukon_vasara: yeah, putting throwing money around doesnt give you free reign to be an asshole
DigitalSeahorse: lrrHEART lrrDARK ferociousModlove
mtvcdm: 'how much money has person X given to LRR' is not a factor when it comes to the banhammer.
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun see, i trust you and your mods. i don't trust Blizzard, not these days.
Anubis169: aww lrrHEART
Anubis169 huggles TheMerricat
HesGotNoPants: but cant I make a new battle not account
jadedcynic: @Ukon_vasara in an ideal world, yes - many things in modern life run exactly opposite to that admirable goal (which DOES get met in some cases)
EricTheOrange: Honestly I highly doubt they'd ban their BN account. maybe suspend
Akaiatana: doxxing might be a thing, yeah
wicker_knight: or identity theft, yeah
tocu: I feel like its a similar move to when GDQ moved to sub only mode. They keep getting the fire hose in chat and want to actualy make chat useable
jadedcynic: "Your continued use of The Service constitutes your agreement to these Terms." :P
DigitalSeahorse: safety reasons
Stoffern: Happy new year from CET btw!
SoloPlayerMike: ah one hour to go until the new year here in england
RockPusher: In our effort to make things better, we risk building the infrastructure to make things a lot worse… it's a more complex issue than first appears :/
wicker_knight: @SoloPlayerMike Kill 2018 for us
Creideiki_SE: Happy new year from UTC+1! Or, in the local vernacular, "Gott nytt år!"

Sannindi: Leon always struck me as a boy scout, so this amuses me.
Foxmar320: Leon got smashed
Lysander_Gustav: Isn't that the setup for Sunset Overdrive?
wicker_knight: I mean, still true @LunarJade
Lysander_Gustav: Wow that's a boring retcon
brainbosh: Wow, that original backstory doesn't match with the way they moved his character at all.
BrindleBoar: not sufficiently heroic
sir_jack_DB: that is SO LAME
togashinaruta: what's his Baxter story?
Mr_Dirty: I like the first version. It makes him a loser/idiot.
jadedcynic: it was NRA: Not Relevant Anymore
Lysander_Gustav: hahahahaha
wicker_knight: okay, so Leon now just a putz, instead of a putz with a funny inciting incident
Foxmar320: I wonder if they changed Clairs from being a college student looking for her brother?
Lord_Hosk: Lady_Hosk has the underscore on twitter because LadyHosk is a person who joined in 2015, followed 7 people and tweeted once, Most of the poeple they follow are also inactive. but Twitter doesnt purge accounts because they like big numbers.
HesGotNoPants: is he still an alcoholic?
Insert_code: So main character is Stanley from the Stanley parable now?
AntiCrepuscular: Happy new year, western Europe!
PandasAndPancakes: I mean, steering him away from potentially abusive cop seems okay...
brainbosh: Quite honestly, that is what I thought the original backstory was.
BrindleBoar: he's not a cop, he's a Hot Cop
wicker_knight: @Foxmar320 wasn't claire also, like, a Special Forces soldier or something?
Akaiatana: Leon: actual raccoon
Foxmar320: wicker_knight no just a normal college student
ThorSokar: it's Resident Evil they can't have a character that has emotions or drinks!
wicker_knight: Oh, I'm thinking of Jill Valentine I think
Despoiler98: this is like flip phone ear
Despoiler98: era
Foxmar320: wicker_knight yeah Jill was for sure
Krokaar: they had those giant old cellphones
brainbosh: RE2 was pre-cellphone smallet than a brick
BrindleBoar: The Resident Evil universe only has 80's cell phones
Lysander_Gustav: Mmm jibble sandwich
RockPusher: Standby sans pants
TheMerricat: gibbet sandwich
arcana_capulus: and get drunk
GDwarf: They didn't quite remove Jill Sandwich, they did change it to "Any later and you would've fit into a sandwich"

togashinaruta: @Insert_code @Sarah_Serinde there's a mental factor in the difference between 'come over' and 'schedule screen time'
McGurganatorZX: oh boy, space trucking time?
RealGamerCow: E:D is VERY improved in the latest patch. Exploration and Mining are both fun now

TheMoatman: Oh that explains the name
Saunabath: Medical doctors
neuroflare: not doctors in the manner of a Doctor Feelgood?
Arclight_Dynamo: *Second* highest. The Order of Merit is higher.
Earthenone: the medical boards of canada
neuroflare: well, they may claim it
Arclight_Dynamo: The Order of Merit is Commonwealth-wide.
LordChrusher: the queen hands out the order of merit
togashinaruta: They starting on the idea of making better educational games on medicine and biology. hence - "Bio-ware"
Scar_Red_Tiger: My Granddad received the Order of Canada.
theghostwiththemost: hi from Ontario Canada
kamelion84: katesLol
LordChrusher: so the order of canada is the highest canada specific award

Antimuffin: Kate was just streaming it
Antimuffin: Along with a zillion other streamers
RockPusher: Margaret Atwood was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour in the UK new years honours - only 65 members commonwealth-wide
thundershot879: oh no this mess
Insert_code: @gdwarf what are syrup’s strengths and weaknesses?
TheMoatman: Oh that's why it looked like ark
tocu: Dec 23rd
Earthenone: so this will be played on GoC this week is what you are saying?
mtvcdm: Atlas looks quite.... unfinished. Hilariously so.
thundershot879: turns out the biggest enemy is real estate
tocu: the most messed up time to launch a game
GDwarf: Insert_code Weakness: Fire boils it dry. Strength: It's delicious.
ThorSokar: "bumpy" is being POLITE
Ukon_vasara: Atlas looks like it belongs on Watch+Play
GDwarf: This sounds exactly like what I'd expect from the Ark people. :P
Antimuffin: It's really just an iteration on ARK, but with pirates instead of dinosaurs.
Aarek: Atlas also still had the Ark menus in it
Saunabath: People play it, so apparently it got fixed
mtvcdm: Atlas needs a lot of work still.
Metric_Furlong: ThorSokar well, Paul is Canadian
Earthenone: sea of indiegogo
ThorSokar: true

Stoffern: Anticipate larger!
Antimuffin: I love how people now expect "Early Access" games to be polished and not have any issues. Like, do we need a new status? "For Realsies Unfinished"?
Questhere: newly released game doesn't work on release. in other news sky is still blue
Insert_code: This is what server stress tests are for
GDwarf: I've *never* seen *any* online game launch without the infrastructure being overwhelmed.
wicker_knight: @Antimuffin we'd need another status on the other end to be "for real we're actually done all the fixes we're going to put in are already in the game"
GDwarf: Antimuffin You expect the problems to be client-side bugs, not servers being grossly underprovisioned.
ysurin91: Just want to state that the developers of Ark did not make Atlas
Saunabath: Everybody expects the launch to go fine, both players and the devs.
tocu: they lauched it christmas weekend which ment lots of people had to work during what a company that size should have a christmas break
Creideiki_SE: @wicker_knight I think that's spelled "the dev team has been reassigned".
Earthenone: because some kids dont DESERVE to get a switch for christmas
togashinaruta: often it means that something in the middle failed, like load-balancing software, or a limit on cc transactions for the day that the bank never told them about
RockPusher: Also, the marketing upside of being able to say you sold out of your product due to demand
Earthenone: what we need is a third party who rents 2 weeks of server space to launching mmos
wicker_knight: @Creideiki_SE or, "we have joined the EA development stable" lrrAWW
GDwarf: ysurin91 Wikipedia, at least, says Wildcard made both
Lord_Hosk: You sold 50 million copies of the game, we know that you wont have 50 million players every day, but you can rent servers by the week. but every online game is like "We sold 50 million games we expect that on average we will have 750,000 players at a time, we will get server space for 800,000 for the first month
togashinaruta: it's rarely a case of 'not having enough servers' - it's usually more complex than that
RockPusher: Heather pulls the curtain aside and finds the naked truth standing there
PixelArtDragon: Servers are hard to just "add more" to.
Antimuffin: It looks exactly like ARK.
sivakrytos: this is how amazon got into webservices
brainbosh: It looks... about the same as ARK, and that's still super popular?

RockPusher: lrrHEART Mods lrrHEART
Anubis169: lrrHEART
Grevas13: You could even access the ARK menu from Atlas
Insert_code: Like Warframe? Have to buy a 2nd monitor for the wiki to play. Love it tho

Earthenone: makes sense lrrBEEJ
TheMoatman: About why cheating is bad
Earthenone: homework for gamers? that is great
wicker_knight: Do I need to complete my SAT :/
Creature_Comforts: <Insert 500 word essay copypasta here>
AlienNanobots: 500 words? That's like, a page. Hardly an essay.
TheMoatman: And everyone has to use turnitin
Earthenone: i wonder how much people are selling their essays for online
Insert_code: I really really really * 497 times want to come back
Akaiatana: Watch them hire a third party essay writer?
TheMoatman: (that isn't real but it would be funny)
ysurin91: they apparently believe that Nexus mods is a pice of cheat software
Mr_Dirty: Your game is not worth that much effort. copy paste?
TacitusVigil: "Hey, they actually wrote the essa-they just copy/pasted the wikipedia page on DRM. Dang it."
tocu: See I would just put in I use this mod that was not cheat it was making your game playable since I cant use that or play your game please refund my purchase and I can just be out of your ecosystem
mtvcdm: Can I just buy someone else's essay about why cheating is bad online?
Ukon_vasara: totally bogus
TheMoatman: In conclusion, cheating is a land of contrasts
Master_Gunner: "the dictionary definition of cheating is..."
togashinaruta: i hope they're checking for plagiarism
Insert_code: @akaiatana watch them get a ghost writer Ye...
Arclight_Dynamo: This is the sort of thing that people who cheat at games wouldn't want to do, so it's a good way to keep dongs out. Perfect!
wicker_knight: I can't imagine anyone is reading theses...
Jelkimantis: I think this is a thing from a Reddit conversation about most clever paternal punishments.
Juliamon: Ohhh yes.
TacitusVigil: Now I imagine Heather and Paul getting a time traveling phone booth to kidnap famous people from computer history to bring to and give a presentation on hacking and cheating. Kappa
tocu: I would end the above statement with a clip of Mr Burns talking to homer on a mountain in the snow explaining Cheating is a God given right
Sarah_Serinde: So many words
MrPhlip: can confirm
S0LIDGAMER: guys happy new year!!!!
Arclight_Dynamo: Next up: "Want to get unbanned? Eat all your vegetables and take a bath." Kappa
thavleifrim: I think the trick here is you keep it on record, then if the person cheats again you send the essay back to them in response to the ban appeal to explain why they are banned
togashinaruta: what awful college was this?
Arclight_Dynamo: As someone trying to get a job with the Canadian federal government, that's how job applications are screened before they go to an actual human. A computer read them. It's... not great.
togashinaruta: or was this a CS class?
wicker_knight: I mean, sounds like the same tools used to generate revenue scrubbers
RealGamerCow: There are SEO services for resumes now
Earthenone: i guess your college was preparing you for the job market at least
RockPusher: I didn't need to in the end, but I highly considered invisible keyword stuffing in electronic CV submissions
togashinaruta: we still have people read each one
DigitalSeahorse: keyword keyword keyword keyword keyword keyword
wicker_knight: algorithms are not a replacement for people
lunarecliptica: yeah, co-op told me to literally just steal wording directly from the job ads for the cover letter. it's not great
thundershot879: there are only so many ways to write a sentence
Phailhammer: Arclight_Dynamo: That explains that time I still got to interview despite pasting an answer to the wrong question. :D
Sannindi: Writing a program that rates the programs your classmates wrote to rate the programs their classmates wrote to rate the programs their...
Dryhad: And then they post the same job a week later because the computer threw out all the applications and they were too stupid to double check
Arclight_Dynamo: Now let me tell you about automation taking over for legal researchers, and how that's bad for people who need lawyers... :\

Laserbeaks_Fury: "How To Appease Your Robot Overlords: 101"
Lord_Hosk: Lady Hosk with 10 years experience as a nurse was getting rejecion letters left and right when applying for jobs, until she showed up to a place and said "Why is no one looking at my resume" and got 5 calls that week from different branchs of that hospital system.
Insert_code: It’s practice for when we have to hand in appreciation letters to our computer overlords
thundershot879: forkknife?!
Antimuffin: Didn't Amazon or someone realize that their machine learning algorithm was super sexist and stop using it? they had it learn from who they had hired and what language they used. Turns out men write differently than women and the sexism became institutionalized in the algorithm.
weightloss2019: hi
JOZeldenrust: Soon we will only be vestigial parts of computer programs
DigitalSeahorse: ForkKnife :p
Earthenone: if we stop talking about fortnite every episode they will never let lrr be partnered
Driosenth: I'm a TA grading a class, Any writing project goes through a anti-plagiarism software (TurnItIn). I've checked each paper that has been flagged. Never seen one that was a false flag
RockPusher: If fork-knife stopped existing, some 10 year olds would be sad
togashinaruta: @Antimuffin yep
Malkmaven1176: Fortnite...meh
banachspacebar: If you don't talk about fortnite they'll all ask why you only talk about pubg
Stoffern: Every time you floss a new fortnite player gets their account...
brainbosh: There have been major updates and I had no idea about them. :/
Arclight_Dynamo: Sea of Thieves suffered from being available only in annoying ways (Win 10 store) and not having enough content. Otherwise, I was *all* about that game.
DigitalSeahorse: R) arrrrrr
Creideiki_SE: @Driosenth I've had to use TurnItIn for reports that included source code. *All* the source code was flagged.
RockPusher: Yeah - Sea of Thieves severely limited their customer base to start with
togashinaruta: @Driosenth that's a bit different that machines grading it as good or bad - you're still grading the paper separately, right?
Lysander_Gustav: Destiny 2 has some of these dances too. I'm interested in seeing what happens.
TheMoatman: He didn't invent that dance though
RockPusher: It's always fun when people encounter the true extent of copyright laws
tocu: surprisingly there is no proper case law on this yet so its going to be a very interesting case.
Lord_Hosk: (watches chat for internet lawyers)
thundershot879: dance copyright is really weird
white_wampa watches Lord_Hosk
Saunabath: The way I understand it, a choreography for a performance can be copyrighted, a specific dance move cannot
natsunokaze: I'd get popcorn, but legal cases take a while and popcorn has a limited shelf-life.
Arclight_Dynamo: Even more confusing: copyright varies by country! So it might be copywritten in the US, but not elsewhere! Or vice versa!
RealGamerCow: Knitting is binary!
TheMerricat: tocu, sure there is. just not case law involving video games. dance troops and musicians have fought for years over whole stole what from whom
DeviantHS: what @Saunabath said
Mr_Dirty: Objection! Counsel is knitting the witness a scarf!
Lysander_Gustav: Knitters were some of the first computer programmers
JOZeldenrust: It's hard to define the fundamental units of any creative endeavour.
Arclight_Dynamo: So, because internet, jurisdictional stuff happens. Fortnite is international.
DoubleFried: happy 2019 everyone!!! <333
Laserbeaks_Fury: But also, dances haven't been "sellable" like this so the law hasn't needed to be there
PixelArtDragon: It's like the "I'll know it when I see it" "Okay, so I'll start drawing, and tell me when it becomes it."
RockPusher: Arclight_Dynamo indeed - I believe the situation in the US is considerably murkier than in my jurisdiction (NZ)
Lord_Hosk: interestingly, they have reached out to the 'creators' and/or popularizers of "complex dances" but not "common/social dances" almost like they have highly skilled lawyers
red_shoes_jeff: "Stealing from everybody is called RESEARCH."
tocu: @TheMerricat there is 1 semi relivivant case regarding yogo but not really dance straight from a well researched lawyer on this so dance copywrite has not ever been tested
Arclight_Dynamo: @RockPusher Yup. And it's simpler here (Canada) because we have agreements with the US to try to harmonize copyright.
AntiCrepuscular: "buyers"
Orgmastron: You can't copyright clothing designs because it's functional, which is why logos are often so prominent
Arclight_Dynamo: This does sound a *lot* like the copyright hand-wringing around sampling back in the 90s. This will work itself out like that did.
Driosenth: @togashinaruta all papers are graded individually. TurnItIn is usually used a an indicator of what I'm in for. Same with duplicate file detection software. I expect almost all code to look the same. It shouldn't have the exact same creation timestamp
wicker_knight: so, ironically, by NOT being gambling, it's copyright theft ):
wicker_knight: (:
RockPusher: Arclight_Dynamo I wouldn't be so sure about that - a couple of recent cases have made the basis for sampling a bit shakier again
Saunabath: I remember Secret World Legends had to change the name of the thriller dance emote to zombie_strut
DigitalSeahorse: I saw a show where fashion company "steals" the Story theme from another company before it goes public so the first company tries to sue but can't so has to has to redo their theme last minute
tocu: my theory is Epic riding a wave of positivety could settle this out of court and give all thoes that created a small cut of things
Arclight_Dynamo: @RockPusher Oh, is that so? IP law wasn't ever my focus.
SnivianMoon: The Saint's Row games had the same dance in them, but when you bought those games, you weren't discretely buying that dance.

PixelArtDragon: Next year is 364 days, 22 hours, and 6 minutes from me
tocu: Toby Fox did have a 2nd project come out this year if you want to end on a high note.
Arclight_Dynamo: There was a case in England, Jennens v Jennens, that started in 1798 and ended in 1915. 117 years. And it only ended because the estate ran out of money to pay the lawyers.
JOZeldenrust: 2019 is 54 minutes old.
Arclight_Dynamo: Speaking of "long legal cases," that is...

Insert_code: Eromanga sensei seems like a good choice for that
mtvcdm: 10-to-1 being the odds it'll work.

Arclight_Dynamo: @RockPusher You're thinking of Serge. Kappa
mtvcdm: Those error print runs are real valuable though.

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: NewDay Tewsday (It's not new new, but it's January 1st, what did you expect? Game: Return of the Obra Dinn) at Tue 12:00 PM PST (19:57 from now).
wicker_knight: a jester, a priest, a werewolf, and an arabian salesman
NovaTiempo: Quarrel! quarrel!... whelp, ded.
RockPusher: The irresistible force is meeting the immovable object
natsunokaze: Happy new year y'all! Going to bed as soon as the locals finish setting off fireworks!
RvLeshrac: Whereas Darkest Dungeon, the game is explicitly designed to shit on you.
TheMerricat: Adam should never be introduced to the old school rogues and nethacks...
wicker_knight: or XCOM on impossible
Antimuffin: Woo!
Arclight_Dynamo: Yaycob!
Earthenone: Something Hype!
SquareDotCube: No more Otome games
Lyannen: You have to win 900 out of 1000 dice rolls with dice that are loaded against you
Antimuffin: Ozmafia was traaaaaaaaaaaash
RockPusher: nethack at least rewards careful play
Sarah_Serinde: They are very done with Ozmafia
Earthenone: she deleted it live on stream
Sarah_Serinde: In both senses of "done"
wicker_knight: OzMafia can go in a fire
garrukthecaller: Happy new years evereveryone
PMAvers: She had many statements about OzMafia, many that can't be said on TV.
RockPusher: FNPF scheduled for 13 hours lrrBEEJ
Antimuffin: Although to be fair, she played it in the least interesting way possible. I looked it up later and you can get way better results by choosing the same person all the time instead of splitting it up between 3.
Angreed66: though Ben's making Adam's
LaconicLad: I've been playing nethack for over 20 years now and never won even once.
Earthenone: presumably ben will make 3
RockPusher: will still run over-time lrrBEEJ
Antimuffin: Also the game *does* actually have lore, you just can't get it except in like 1 specific ending.
Sarah_Serinde: Antimuffin She (and a lot of chat) had...a lot of other issues with it though
Antimuffin: Oh yes for sure
Sir__Octopus: Subs?
TheMerricat: @antimuffin was it the fact that it wasn't interesting or was it the fact that the games males were all creeps
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Mr_Dirty: bonus stream of Paul's tech time?
Antimuffin: But it least would have been problematic and interesting instead of problematic and boring.
Frankenfruity: yeah but these will be without messages now
ysurin91: happy new year

wicker_knight: @Antimuffin yeah she never settled on a route that she liked, and the closest to a route she wanted was Pashet, which isn't really a route
RvLeshrac: So if chat dumped another 500 subs when it was just you two..
corpocracy: lrrDOTS lrrHEART lrrARROW
Sarah_Serinde: Reminder that even though they don't read sub messages out loud when they do them this way, they still tend to go back and read them on their own time lrrHEART
Arclight_Dynamo: Result Donkey Kong?
RockPusher: lrrDOTS lrrDOTS lrrAWESOME lrrDOTS lrrDOTS
Antimuffin: Pashet *is* a route, it's just not a romance route. You become BFFs and hold handss.
