PhoenixMelior: all right, I need checkpoint to be 5 minutes late while my podcast finishes
Earthenone: im sure they will oblige
Metric_Furlong: which is quite strong, as you'd expect from being able to bring extra fighters onto the field, but does have a couple of trade-offs, related to how the spell system works
Metric_Furlong: (basically, you need to have summons un-summoned to be able to cast certain spells - and summoned units cannot cast these spells themselves while they're on the field)
PhoenixMelior: eh, depending on the spells that doesn't seem like much of a drawback
DoodlestheGreat: Soon(tm) it will be the time for the chequing of the pointes.
Metric_Furlong: well, it includes healing spells
PhoenixMelior: I was about to say
PhoenixMelior: "unless that involves healing spells"
Metric_Furlong: and most of the attack spells
Metric_Furlong: and the reason that matters is because attack spells, being ranged, generally don't provoke counter-attacks

GapFiller: Take 3!
TheMerricat: @richard_ermen gearbox
NathanJay_GA: that was... better
devil_dan: Flawless.
Elspeth_Tirel: Isn't that what the first game had?
known_kadath: Take 3!
BrindleBoar: earned some mulligans from the perfect rant takes
timiam: Run on and on and on, Graham.
dragoon3zero: once more with feeling
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: don't use run on sentences they are hard to read Keepo
Laserbeaks_Fury: You generally don't pay off your own bounty
7gorobei: speedrunon strats
tastethebeams: @Elspeth_Tirel yea but don't worry about it, it's new content Kappa
metalman895: wooooo!
Theycallmejokke: All in ONE take, perfect, got there!
PhoenixMelior: that's how it works in Elder Scrolls, actually
MAPBoardgames: First try!
Sektor88: "horse nuts real"
DigitalSeahorse: Loading Ready Run-on sentences lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
Metric_Furlong: lrrGOAT
ghost_waz: got it in one!
TXC2: #HorseNutsRealism
devil_dan: You can in RDR2.
GapFiller: One Take Peferect!
TheWarbo: Your game may be realistic...but is it Horse Nuts Realistic™?
Elspeth_Tirel: We forgive you now
Reecer6: Wanted: Cash or check, $10,000
AzureShok: Just got here, sorry if a dupe Q. Have you seen the new changes to MTG Arena?
BlueMechanic: "Horse-nuts level of realism" sure is a statement
TheMoatman: Man I got a .36 second latency to AGDQ when they still had low latency mode on. Perk of living half an hour away from both the stream and the datacenter they're streaming to
onyxseeker just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. onyxseeker subscribed for 6 months in a row!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, onyxseeker! (Today's storm count: 17)
PandasAndPancakes: Can I pay for your bounty? That seems neighbourly.
Stellapacifica: On a scale of 1 to horse nuts, how realistic is your game
red_shoes_jeff: "Lucky I just robbed that bank, eh?"
Azsedcf: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 18:42.
PhoenixMelior: again, that's ALSO how it works in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Lucaan: Making fun of something? On this stream? NotLikeThis
ThorSokar: well, it's how it works Now, for corperations
TheMerricat: i came in during Graham's real talk on destiny, what came before?
Zath_: You can pay your own bounty in Assassin's Creed Odyssey as well.
Metric_Furlong: Randy 'accurately named' Pitchford
devil_dan: I mean, a bounty hunter would probably take the money instead of risking his life but that wouldn't erase the bounty.
godort: just buy 2 USB sticks
DigitalSeahorse: wasn't Gearbox the company that did DB VR?
UnexpectedOracle: You guys are amazing! It’s my first time watching live
Metric_Furlong: DigitalSeahorse yes
GapFiller: TheMoatman phun phact even on minimum video quality and with low latency disabled and hidden chat I'm still getting massive buffering
Foxmar320: Why would you even carry that with you?
cheetoJack: you probably shouldnt take a usb stick like that to a medieval times
Angnor33: This is why you always have 2 USB sticks.
TXC2: hello UnexpectedOracle welcome
TheWarbo: Even if your porn is fine, don't keep it on the company secrets thumb drive.
Emergent_OS: Thank you, Dr. Graham for covering the Bungie story. Without your coverage, I would have been lost in this incomprehensible, convoluted story.
SpookySpaghooti: what else happens on these live shows?
Dared00: Also, if you knew about a USB stick with "child porn", why didn't you report it TO THE POLICE
Foxmar320: Like who takes there porn out to dinner?
Daye04: Randy Pitchford? Randy Pitchfork more like it
GapFiller: its bad enough I'm on the fence abt peaceing out here
NathanJay_GA: Honestly? The Hearbox story seems exceptionally sensational, and I'm not sure if I'm gonna take the lawyer's side
BlueMechanic: Why do you have a USB stick out at a Medieval times?
NathanJay_GA: *Gearbox
DigitalSeahorse hopes there isn't any underage stuff on there
ANeMzero: You shouldn't take a USB stick to Medieval times, period. If there is one thing we know gamers hates, it's historical inaccuracy /s
ExitPursuedByABear: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Graham, Kathleen & Paul bring you the latest video game news) at Mon 02:00 PM PST (23m ago).
MousseFilledCat: Violating your trust as a fiduciary is a big deal
TheMoatman: GapFiller is your speed fine on tests?
TXC2: "money that should have been developing Aliens Colonial marines" Kappa
aClonedPickle: i doubt funneling more money into borderlands would've fixed their shitty drop tables
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Can we just rename Gearbox to BorderlandsBox?
Reecer6: Gamers rise up!!!
BlueMechanic: They didn't have USB ports in Medieval times
Decaped: That money should have been thrown in the Battleborn pit!
ricin: Callender is just trying to misdirect
hippitybobbity: he stole a lollypop from Borderlands!?!?!
orellien2773: Graham, serious kudos for avoiding the "Publishers are the spawn of Satan, Developers are only angelic beings" take that soooooooooo freaking many people have.
Dared00: This money should've been spent on Half-Life: Opposing Force
hoktauri: I went the Medieval Banquet in London on Friday and was quite angry at the unrealistic chainmail they had
ricin: a magic trick, if you will
KinoGami: that money belongs in a museum!
DigitalSeahorse: xD
Angnor33: @BlueMechanic Nice.
Laserbeaks_Fury: !card Misdirection
LRRbot: Misdirection [3UU] | Instant | You may exile a blue card from your hand rather than pay this spell's mana cost. / Change the target of target spell with a single target.
Decaped: it should have been burned in the Battleborn bonfire!
delta__vee: that's money they should have spent on battleborn KappaRoss
Foxmar320: That story is just so out there. Like what the heck.
devil_dan: Calendar Man?
TheMetalupis: Dear Doctors LRR, i know G mentioned it before, but i was wondering who was coming to Pax South
hippitybobbity: i still feel that money should have gone to free Destiny DLC
TheWarbo: I own, like, six.
TheWarbo: They are all lined up right here on my desk
KinoGami: i have so many usb sticks
Scar_Red_Tiger: dont mix work and pleasure
KinoGami: i don;t know where they all are
BrindleBoar: work stick, porn stick - just get different colors
DigitalSeahorse: how'd Medieval Times know there was porn on it if they had no ports? :D
control_rig: I was SO glad when I realized he wasn't into Magic: the Gathering, but rather actual "stage magic".
KinoGami: pretty much i lose one and then go buy a new one
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: @Foxmar320 It is almost as "out there" as the whole David Cameron pig thing. What has happened with news lately?
DoodlestheGreat: If he'd really wanted to mis-direct, he'd have said it was what held back "Aliens: Colonial Marines." :tf:
TheMerricat: and maybe don't keep the porn stick in your pocket...
TXC2: Jesus Graham
orellien2773: <insert Arrested Development reference here>
Foxmar320: TheSoundOfWhiteNoise dark things have taken place :(
Akaiatana: She used multiple G-forces?
Metric_Furlong: not a trick, it's an illusion Michael
BtEtta: That seems like a self-own :P
Mr_Horrible: goddammit
richard_ermen: What if all this was the worst kind of marketing stunt possible?
KinoGami: they make usb keychains and such
MousseFilledCat: Fiduciaries are legally obligated to act in the best interest of their clients only, so that's a serious accusation
Laserbeaks_Fury: Throw it up in front of Penn and Teller
KinoGami: there are ways to avoid this issue
tenthtechpriest: what is this? IT MUST BE MAGIC
OKB_1: I do and do not want to know
TXC2: "slight of hand" :D
DougintheTrench: Creepy illegal sex stuff is something to be concerned about, as is the $12 mil. But it probably shouldn't be put together, it dilutes both issues.
Reecer6: How can this mythical Swiss device fit SEVEN TOOLS?
TehAmelie: narrator voice: it was not magic
Amentur: Maybe it turned a non-bodily colour :D ?
ContingentCat: a "slight of hand" is a good way to refer to it
Anaerin: The $12 million, so I saw reported, was "A personal bonus based on future game sales", which is a) not illegal, and b) entirely between him and Gearbox software.
Elspeth_Tirel: Is it slight of hand or sleight of hand?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Some Sort of "Digitation"
delta__vee: "photo finish" har, har
Rhynerd: Greetings!
RzltDK: usb sticks are everywhere like hdmi cables and you never know where they all come from
Rhynerd: How were the stories today?
therisingtithes_: I'm sorry, but "it's not a photo finish" did just kill me out of nowhere.
FreaQU: Photo finish has a weird ring to it when talking about porn
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: oh yeah, he was the DB VR call in right?
DigitalSeahorse: they took our stickers and put them in the VR
aClonedPickle: thank you for addressing that Kathleen
Laserbeaks_Fury: The secret is she's twins Kappa
richard_ermen: Open the floodgates!
DigitalSeahorse is still proud of Rosco sticker on visor
Reecer6: When do you get Pitchford as a call-in?
ChrisLewisRose: Randy pitchford? He Suuure is!
aClonedPickle: he showed up on Mikey's call-in
LucidBerserker: Hehe
LucidBerserker: Hard in :D
DigitalSeahorse: as poorly lit as it is
tenthtechpriest: he's real hard in all right
SajuukSjet: phrasing, Graham! :D
BtEtta: One of my board games has some expansion pieces designed by Pitchford.
thundershot879: what about bungie forgetting a line of code which made a puzzle keeping destiny content locked for everyone impossible forcing bungie to manually unlock it 24 hours in
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: the magic magic MAGIC, not the magic MAGIC magic
LucidBerserker: I see what you did there Graham
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Just as unproven as the David Cameron pig thing. And probably just as unsettling and hilarious at the same time.
BtEtta: Small World, good game.
Foxmar320: I really want to play KH3 but I want it for PC.
RzltDK: I wonder if the law considers you 18 at birth time or midnight?
TheWarbo: the Epic Log
lunarecliptica: secret movies are pretty standard for kh games
PharaohBender27: @TheSoundOfWhiteNoise Oh man, I'd almost forgotten about that one.
TheWooglie: Foxmar320 that would be great
MousseFilledCat: I'm sure it's Jiminy's Journal
TheMetalupis: usually finish the Journal
Lazarus_18: Oh god, is it more sequel hooks?
TXC2: RzltDK Very interesting question
OmnipotentTrevor: The Secret Movies are a series staple at this point
UnknownGerm: Secret boss? Secret boss.
accountmadeforants: Answer this 200-page quiz to confirm you ACTUALLY understand Kingdom Hearts
orionsrise1: I'll show them! I'm playing Civ 6 until realeased
EricTheOrange: It's kind of a tradition in KH games that if you 100% them you get a secret extra scene
Mushbie: @rzltdk quite sure its midnight
NextLevelTabletop: @RzltDK Midnight
OKB_1: Dataminers will put on Youtube on the first day of course.
known_kadath: Isn't MtGA Built on Unity?
DougintheTrench: Talk to King Mickey before boss route A and not after and then beat every bonus boss with no damage taken.
LordManiMani: Get the Bengineering Guarantee
DigitalSeahorse: how do I get win10 to stop showing me huge ass notifications about everything?
TXC2: known_kadath yeap
known_kadath: Good...good
Rhynerd: What did Unity change in it’s TOS?
SajuukSjet: Unity apparently has a horse in that race, now, so SpatialOS is a competitor
TehAmelie: legally, anniversaries happen on the stroke of midnight. ethically, you probably don't have to watch porn with teenagers past the age of 25. . .
LucidBerserker: @LoadingReadyRun I just got in, how do you feel about Bungie being free from Activision's clutches?
Foxmar320: LucidBerserker you missed a long story
Pteraspidomorphi: You can as long as you own the full server-side environment I think
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Oh, that will be trouble for Heathstone then?
draxov: It's scared a lot of developers (including the company I work for) because the precedent that unity can just revoke licenses
LucidBerserker: @Foxmar320 Aww, well, I'll just watch the VOD then.
Metric_Furlong: RzltDK most legal records don't really list time of birth, just day of birth, afaik so I'd imagine it's probably 'at midnight'?
Pteraspidomorphi: Unity did not behave in a trustworthy manner, no
Foxmar320: LucidBerserker we are about to talk about it again tho
TheMerricat: @lucidberserker youll want to catch the vod, Graham much to say
draxov: But Improbable's blog post was pretty dramatically worded
draxov: And scaled it way out of proportion
PharaohBender27: @LucidBerserker Also, if you just got here, you missed a really lrrEFFed up story about Randy Pitchford.
DigitalSeahorse: kenohkBubble lrrSLOTH benginTry
draxov: There second blog post even asked for some sort of Software Police thing XD
LucidBerserker: @TheMerricat I will, cuz I honestly can't WAIT for Bungie to give us THEIR version of Destiny :D
PharaohBender27: * lrrEFF ed
Foxmar320: Ben is great
KinoGami: i knew that sounded a lot like ben
RzltDK: @metric_furlong that's true for enforcement but not necessarily true for law as written
TheMerricat: @pteraspidomorphi to be fair to unity they claim they've been telling improbable for over a year there was an issue.
TheMetalupis: DandyGeek, A+ human

KinoGami: what adi said
Foxmar320: Agree adi
NathanJay_GA: So Bungie is basically Martin Lutjer?
Elspeth_Tirel: Honestly I don't see self publishing going well for them
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: yeah the move to Activision always seemed an odd "independence" move to me
NathanJay_GA: *Luther
GenericHerooo: The way the arrow is pointing right in Graham's head.
Foxmar320: Also as much as I liked Forsaken some things they did really bug me.
LucidBerserker: @TheMerricat Oh, well then. I'll see the VOD's cuz I was not a fan of Curse which stopped me from getting Warmind. My buddy though said that Forsaken is TOTALLY worth it.
DigitalSeahorse: something something burning bridges
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Oh, that is just a corporate image thing. They know players see the big companies as evil, so they want to play up them splitting from them as a massive deal.
LordManiMani: sounds like jerkwad leadership
Foxmar320: Time gating story content that you can miss if you don't log in is really stupid
OKB_1: Why if you don't like imposed deadlines do you make some huge life service game thing like Destiny?
Rockario: I can see it being the folks in charge bringing in that "90's Game Industry" thing where everything is a show, always go extreme no matter the actual business context
richard_ermen: I miss Dinklebot...
KinoGami: isn't the story that he gave them a "fuck you" quote when they asked him to come back for the expansions?
DougintheTrench: Bungie been slowly kneecapping the goodwill over the years.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: i'm curious, how do we know the mistakes are Bungie and not Activision, even indirectly?
thundershot879: @foxmar320 yeah a rare bounty into a one a month unrelated dungeon makes no sense!
hippitybobbity: interesting development
Anaerin: Are Bungie going to be the next Valve?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Foxmar320 it's very FOMO
DandyGeek: Bungie had explicit creative control
mtvcdm: It seems like this move is very likely to send Destiny down the Metal Gear Survive Hole.
adi_pie: Hey, I hear EA is looking to make a Destiny-alike. Maybe Bungie can help with that. Kappa

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Josephdalepi! (Today's storm count: 20)
SquareDotCube: I feel like Bungie might be happier making smaller games again for a while?
Angnor33: I miss Myth.
TheMoatman: And then Microsoft got them after Halo was underway
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: EA, or Ubisoft
Elspeth_Tirel: EA has Anthem though right guys???
Dared00: Or Sony?
Foxmar320: Like ive been playing less and less Destiny due to frustrations with gameplay choices
TheMerricat: Just remember myth2's installer issues
LucidBerserker: @Anaerin I'd rather they turn into the next Blizzard. Since Valve won't release anything with a 3 in it =P
EvilBadman: Elspeth_Tirel Anthem looks fun, so shrug?
SAJewers: apparently Gathering of Developers on Win + Man, Rockstar on PS2
KinoGami: i is bobby kotick still incharge at activision?
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Gearbox is also a publisher right? Seems perfect for Bungie
offbeatwitch: old Bungie was a proper old gamedev company - I wonder if the current employees still feel like they're living that
fiftymcnasty: The investigated for securities fraud bit seems a bit over blown.
Anaerin: LucidBerserker: Except that Blizzard is owned by Activision.
aClonedPickle: think so, kino
PharaohBender27: All the parties involved are bad in their own unique ways!
Pazy160: Destiny is always so close to being great but its harder and harder to have any good thoughts towards the good 90%.
DougintheTrench: @LoadingReadyRun Who's Bungie's publisher is next is feeling kinda like a celebrity relationship.
Elspeth_Tirel: @EvilBadman I'm just bitter because DA Origins is my second favorite game ever and I haven't fully enjoyed a Bioware game since 2010
KinoGami: odst and reach
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: @Foxmar320 kind of the same, I tried it a while and was hoping for easy drop-in drop-out coop - it didn't seem to have that so I moved on to other things
adi_pie: Yes, Reach and ODST.

accountmadeforants: Like, that's the same thing Christ Roberts said with Star Citizen, after being forced to actually release something by Origin Systems with Wing Commander, and being actually forced to release something by Microsoft with Freelancer.
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Gearbox is also a publisher right? Seems perfect for Bungie, to hook up with them.
offbeatwitch: yeah and then they outsourced halo to 343 and they did the Modern Triple A thing
AgentMagicMaster: they...... got to keep the RnD?? wowowowow
Foxmar320: Yep
LordManiMani: mmmm Halo Reach
UnknownGerm: Hell, when I worked at EA, they wouldn't even let me keep the notepad I wrote stuff down on
coolbond: bungie sounds kinda like asshats
thundershot879: yeah bungie just seems to hate having to answer to anyone
DigitalSeahorse: lrrWOW
Foxmar320: Hey Bungie if you want to hire someone to test for glitches call me
accountmadeforants: *Chris, dang that's an awkward typo
DandyGeek: Reach is the engine Destiny uses, afaik
Kykiwi: hire bunch of people who can keep them actully realse stuff on track
CamelAttack: It would be hilarious if they tried to find another publisher and nobody takes them up on it because of their last two relationships with major publishers.
offbeatwitch: bungie seems like they're pretending they're still the company they were in the 90s
adi_pie: I mean, even aside from Warmind and Forsaken. Let's not forget the PC version of Destiny is 100% made by Vicarious Visions.
Foxmar320: DandyGeek foxmarLOVE
PharaohBender27: @UnknownGerm Oof. I imagine you have stories from that job.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: LUL
mtvcdm: Put Blue Toad in smash, you cowards!
TXC2: !smash
LRRbot: Put a generally-accepted appreciation for the breadth of the current roster in Smash, you cowards!
SpookySpaghooti: Activision didnt tell Bungie to reboot D1 and D2 a year before launch each
DandyGeek: @foxmar320 <3
Pazy160: Oh yeah, Bload is my favourite mario character.
UnknownGerm: PharaohBender27 suuure do.
LordManiMani: or join the growing market of companies mostly owned my Chinese conglomerates
BtEtta: I'm annoyed that Luigi can't wear the super crown.
SpookySpaghooti: NABBIT WOO
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: still want Booette/Peachaboo
adi_pie: @DandyGeek that is what they said around the time of D1. That it's an "upgraded" version of the same engine.
Foxmar320: So many easy modes in that game
azureHaights: Gotta get that all important BotanicSage demographic
loryitalys: hi
LucidBerserker: I'll take Toadette over Blue Toad any day.
Mr_Horrible: got some real echo fighter stans in the community
loryitalys: Squid1 Squid2 Squid3 Squid4 PJSalt
Reecer6: Yeah, it's such a weird and dumb decision.
Emergent_OS: Bungie is masters at developing futuristic FPS... I wonder if they feel burdened by the format.
nullrush: you're forced to play different characters?
wildpeaks: oh dear
accountmadeforants: Or several small children and one parent who doesn't know how to play video games.
coolbond: Toadette is not really easy mode it is just pit immunity
Kykiwi: lol
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: 76 isn't dead yet?
NathanJay_GA: oh boy
Foxmar320: Another game I mostly stopped playingg :(
Rhynerd: “We need one person to be the clutch.”
DandyGeek: @adi_pie Yeah, so stands to reason D2 is the same core. You can’t build an engine from scratch *and* crank content for a live game
SpookySpaghooti: 76's community has gone insane I swear
adi_pie: Oh, definitely not.
TheMerricat: @emergent_os remember they made myth
TXC2: pins, ammo and stimpacks dont have weight
DandyGeek: 76, another game using an ass old engine
Rockario: They did add ammo weight when they introduced survival mode into FO4
SpookySpaghooti: God Im so scared for ES6
wildpeaks: 76 is seems punishing with weight than F4 survival
Foxmar320: No one I know is playing 76 anymore
UnknownGerm: they found QA Smoke?
SpookySpaghooti: why cant Bethesda just get a new engine :(
Anaerin: Babby Pins weighed 0.1kg. They now weigh 0.001kg
ZeroArcana: they stopped making bobbypins out of depleted uranium
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: w00bie?
Anaerin: UnknownGerm: Yes.
Kykiwi: Wait they ban you?
Kykiwi: oof
Laserbeaks_Fury: 60 Bobby Pins = a Nuke according to MacGuyver Equivalency
LadyTL: Bobby pins weighing as much as they did didn't even make sense as a 'volumetric pound'
PharaohBender27: @Anaerin lrrWOW
coolbond: wait did you say wooby?
OKB_1: And you can get Fallout 2, a good game, for free if you own Fallout 76.
SpookySpaghooti: Not only do you get banned, you have to WRITE AN ESSAY on how you got into that area
mtvcdm: 76 has more of a storyline outside of gameplay than inside of it.
Elspeth_Tirel: I heard they make you write an essay about why cheating is wrong to get unbanned
coolbond: splatoon crossover confirmed
Phailhammer: There's a bee? lrrSPOOP
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: "you found this area that we didn't properly block off? BURN YE, WITCH"
offbeatwitch: bethesda's engine requires the dev room to exist because of how items work
Anaerin: Yup, they ban you if you've been in the dev room. BUT you can take items from the dev room and trade them to other players, and the other player doesn't get banned. So people are using mule accounts.
DandyGeek: Bethesda really don’t get how to handle an online game
TheWarbo: OH I thought wubi like the ubuntu-on-windows thing
Metric_Furlong: cocaine, mostly
Invitare: I don't think it was just the movies
azureHaights: 🎵In the year 2000...
richard_ermen: The 80s...when every teen movie included attempted Karate Kid...
DiceHoarder: They were made in the 80's that's what's wrong with movies from the 80's
EvilBadman: @Anaerin As if Beth can't still do a bansweep
Orgmastron: lrrWOW
Decaped: @WhaDidBeejPutInDPie you had to teleport hack to get there, i still think bannings are dumb.
control_rig: I object to that
accountmadeforants: Shoulda dobbed
Shinjiro12: I'd hella dab for 2k
kinkerbelle: $20 per hour. Mm.
SpookySpaghooti: Wow I wish I could do that
Pteraspidomorphi: LoadingReadyRun could absolutely do that
TXC2: Dab Ben style
mtvcdm: How much are the resulting medical bills?
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: 10 hours... sounds bad
Dared00: @kinkerbelle $200
Laserbeaks_Fury: Rock hard dabs
PhoenixMelior: 2000? That's IT?
Invitare: how much was Carameldansen?
TheMoatman: For 10 hours? That's 200 bucks an hour. I'd do it
Anaerin: EvilBadman: I don't think they have the ability to track traded items.
KinoGami: didn;t you do a crapshot about this? KappaHD
LucidBerserker: I'm sorry, but I sure as hell would for 2 Grand.
red_shoes_jeff: Didn't you guys do a Crapshot about that?
Peter_susman: get adam to dob for 10 h
Amentur: So a modern version of caramelldansen ?
Akaiatana: Maybe have a dab of muscle relaxant?
SpookySpaghooti: 10 hours of hard work for $2000? sounds pretty solid imo
OKB_1: Never skip dab day
SquareDotCube: The good news is, he's ready for speed skating :P
TwoMenInAHorseCostume: $2000<continued range of motion of my shoulder sockets
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Kathleen, 10 hours of Carameldansen?
SpookySpaghooti: but ouch the shoulder pain
TehAmelie: i don't think i "could" do it more than an hour or maybe two
LadyTL: *dabs into a cellphone* dangit
LordManiMani: Dab Bus for Hope
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Oh wait, 10 hours of Carameldansen is just Desert Bus
LucidBerserker: I don't have a lot of time left in me, so 2k for 10 hours for dabbing seems more than deece
underhill33: RIP
josh_le_crafter: dab-sert bus for hope
PhoenixMelior: they raised the price of Netflix in Canada?
TimbrePanic: yes
PharaohBender27: @TheSoundOfWhiteNoise Pretty sure 10 hours of carameldansen would destroy your hips
DoodlestheGreat: "Nintendo and chill?" OhGod
SquareDotCube: And yet you still don't get servers for your Smash multiplayer
TehAmelie: at what point do you think your arms fall down and don't come up again?
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Have James Dob for 10 hours?
SpookySpaghooti: whats the average cost of living in Canadia?
Gattlinggoon: @LoadingReadyRun problem about switch online is that it doesnt work... at all... the lag is so bad streamers quit with the new smash
ContingentCat: damnit they raised the price of canadain netflix agan?
PhoenixMelior: SpookySpaghooti varies GREATLY by province
Emergent_OS: @themerricat True, and Halo began its life as RTS. Maybe now Bungie feels, as if they are cursed. No matter what idea they start with, it is now always seems to end up as a FPS, because they are so talented in this genre. And RTS games have unfortunately became less popular.
EricTheOrange: Some people are downvoting beacuse they want to be part of a trend.
Rockario: I prefer the $5 games because I can still play my VC copy of Ocarina of Time and Super Mario World

TXC2: SpookySpaghooti like America, super expensive in places where people actually live, real cheap out in bumblefuck noware
wildpeaks: oh good
GlennSeto: Data miners just found that SNES games are around the corner, including SNES Mini exclusive Starfox 2.
UnknownGerm: welp
TheOtherTrevor: But did the ships crash?
KinoGami: they clearly needed van halen to help
SpookySpaghooti: hey hows Star Citizen doing
TimbrePanic: PhoenixMelior, 9.99 base, 13.99 standard, 16.99 premium

DougintheTrench: Just release every Nintendo game before 2010 onto the Switch at the same time! I'm sure the servers can handle it.
ZeroArcana: the Distant Stars remain distant
LordManiMani: Ah Project Outbound Flight
accountmadeforants: Engage the glitch drive! Go to plaid- oh no wait those are GPU artifacts!
Scy_Anide: Someday people will learn why "queues" exist, but not today.
PhoenixMelior: TimbrePanic thank you. Also nonsense.
Anaerin: That's a lot of Anacondas...
ZethRuss: reminds me of AQ opening
Decaped: Just like the chinese car emissions restrictions!
ThorSokar: there's time now!
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: the WHO?
UnknownGerm: siiiiiiiigh
TimbrePanic: PhoenixMelior you're welcome
Dared00: Good, finally
PharaohBender27: So, what's their definition of "gaming disorder?"
Gekyouryuu: Kathleen, could I ask your opinions on who the best romance options in p5 are? still early in the game, and curious who to look forward to
Reecer6: gaming disorder is when your games aren't in alphabetical order
Orgmastron: Forgive me I don't exactly trust the ESA
ChrisLewisRose: gaming disorder is nowt compared to social media disorder THATS something which they need to look at
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Gaming Disorder just sounds like a gambling addition, seeing as quite a few games nowadays are just straight up gambling.
GlennSeto: No objections there.
Iceberg_Man: gaming disorder is a bad name for it
DigitalSeahorse: lrrFRUMP lrrAWW
lunarecliptica: i feel like 'gaming disorder' is maybe not the best name for it?
TXC2: so an addiction then?
offbeatwitch: gaming disorder is when you hate women and minorities
SquareDotCube: it seems like less gaming and more escapism and gambing
CamelAttack: Ugh, gaming disorder isnt specific to gaming. It's an amalgamation of various disorders.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: honestly, i've felt like i've been in that situation at times...
Hellscream31: how many of us love kathleen? just to know how many i have to compete with
PharaohBender27: Then, why don't they call it "gaming addiction disorder?" Calling it "gaming disorder" makes it sound like it describes someone who is inept at playing games.
Akaiatana: Not going out for dinner with friends because you have a raid? etc?
TheMoatman: Usually they call things out separately when it's prevalent enough
mattydubs75: are they gonna use your music video?
Reecer6: Yeah, it's not any different from any other non-substance-related addiction.
j0xer: it probably has to be classified seperately so people can get health care coverage for it
EricTheOrange: To be fair companies have created games to be addictive. The point of MMOs are their supposed to take up all your time
DigitalSeahorse: it's right up there with other forms of distraction addictions
Decaped: I dunno, seperately would allow for people who flunk out of college because of gaming to have more resources for that problem.
Angnor33: D&D will make you a satanists!
Angnor33: Kappa
Unas84: yeah, they could use 'game-focused' as a modifier for known disorders?
PhoenixMelior: presumably, these are only those that have "addictions" to gaming? It's a bad name because it sounds like anyone who games at all has "gaming disorder"
Emergent_OS: Game Designers seem to fit the gaming “disorder” definition...
accountmadeforants: Eh, I'd take the WHO over the ESA and the guys literally making money off of games
Metric_Furlong: Angnor33 nah, satanists are too cool for D&D Kappa
DigitalSeahorse: avoidance of dealing with other problems
TehAmelie: my stepbrother used to cheat at Ludo before Playstation existed. gaming disorder!
mattydubs75: poor long lost member of 64k
Rockario: It's hard to hit that line between "Not Demonizingh games" and "Acknowledging games can be a target of addiction"
NextLevelTabletop: @LoadingReadyRun Dice Friends tonight?
PhoenixMelior: Metric_Furlong no i'm not!
Angnor33: @Metric_Furlong Probably true. ;-)
Hastur578: I haven't seem one of these it forever! <3
TXC2: NextLevelTabletop should be
DougintheTrench: Don't you remember Kathleen? You ate the tissue.
OriginalGarwulf: I've written on this subject in the EverQuest Companion - the problem is that for a very long time now, mental health professionals would not even acknowledge that it was possible to become addicted to a video game.
Dared00: @PhoenixMelior and not eveyone who gambles has a "gambling disorder"
OriginalGarwulf: And people did suffer and find themselves unable to get help because of it.
PhoenixMelior: Dared00 right, it's just hard to tell with all of this
ChrisLewisRose: Those kids and their gaming disorders, so bad for them *goes back to staring at facebook for 4 hours*
PhoenixMelior: huh. That surprises me, Garwulf
mynameisie: Imho if video games are causing significant problems in your life it’s likely there’s an already established problem that interfaces with gaming
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: "Compelled"
Scy_Anide: Anything can be habit forming
offbeatwitch: desert bus
MousseFilledCat: Video games trigger your brain's reward mechanism in a way watching tv doesnt
PharaohBender27: @NextLevelTabletop They're continuing Kathleen's campaign. Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch this evening's stream live :(
DigitalSeahorse: Distractions!!!!!
Invitare: they were likely defining addiction as a chemical thing exclusively
Gattlinggoon: @LoadingReadyRun the difrence is between addiction and compulsion. you can not become adicted to games. Extracredits did a good episode on it
TXC2: speaking as an Addict, you cant get psychologically addicted to anything
TXC2: *can
TehAmelie: tell my 17 year old self who didn't sleep for a week after playing Diablo for an hour you can't be addicted to that. . .
offbeatwitch: one time I stayed up for like 20 hours watching desert bus
DougintheTrench: Is there a general Media Consumtion Disorder?
offbeatwitch: it was bad
devil_dan: Unhealthily eating healthily.
PhoenixMelior: txc2 I was gonna say
TXC2: stupid fingers :P
TheMoatman: It's definitely a prevalence thing. Way more people get unhealthily into games than, say, movie-watching. Same reason why there's a separate alcohol category from the other substances
Kramburger: I'm told that an addiction becomes an addiction when it impacts significantly on your life/health. There doesn't have to be a direct addictive component
OriginalGarwulf: I don't know how many people have heard of Shawn Wolley, but he was famous for having committed suicide while playing EverQuest. The story that you didn't get unless you talked to his mother (which I did) was that the family spent YEARS trying to get him help, and nobody would touch it.
Boiler_bot: I think anything that involves a dopamine release, you can get addicted to.
Reecer6: Granted we're all armchair psychiatrists.
Akaiatana: Turn out for who?
prystigia: A friend of mine is a lecturer in Game development here in the UK, he was talking about it today and was arguing a case for using the term 'problem gaming' over 'gaming addiction' largely in that it was problematic behaviour being epressed via games
KinoGami: the Who?
PharaohBender27: @offbeatwitch Well, LRR is addictive :P
TehAmelie: PJSalt don't tell me to moderate my salt!
OKB_1: I think gaming addiction could definitely become a helpful addition to the DSM as long it's properly defined.
Reecer6: Who, who who who?
PhoenixMelior: I mean, a lot of weird things are diseases in the compendium so eh
TimbrePanic: OOO?
KinoGami: they are still alive?
SliverSwag: it's a case of the people in charge of adding it don't know much about Gaming and just don't understand
PhoenixMelior: I'm sorry, who?

Nocxia: the jurassic park ones were adorable
devil_dan: You mean UFO Enemy Unknown?
sag3error: Isn't Lego plural?

TheWarbo: No, I mean do you have "a bunch of Legos" or "a bunch of Lego"
DigitalSeahorse: Canada is both
Mr_Horrible: they're well made and fun. It's always impressed me
SquareDotCube: I suggest one of the first LEGO games - LEGO Creator. (also if it gets picked and you need a way to get it let me know)
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: i always legos
lunarecliptica: legos here in ontario

aWabbajack: night TXC2
PharaohBender27: Anyhow, as I was about to say before, LRR bringing it up is the first time I ever knew there was a debate about the plural for "Lego" - I always assumed it was one lego, two legos :P
PharaohBender27: So long, @TXC2
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: "Damn Legos! they ruined Legoland!"
margieargie: One LEGO, two LEGO, three LEGOs.
DarkMorford: Leggo my Eggo!
adi_pie: I refuse
AmoriLinguae: but the English regular plural is 'add an s' and no matter how much people want to regulate that that's not how it works, that's how the average person is going to pluralize any new word, and shaming them for it is being snobbish
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: anyone have the link to the bungie tweet of "if you're playing every day i don't see the problem"?
adi_pie: I somehow doubt it's still up.
TehAmelie: it's not just snobbery, Lego group wants to direct the way people talk. it's like if Coca-Cola insisted people call it soda and not pop

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Dice Friends (Kathleen leads our heroes through the means streets of Ravnica. This is Bylaw & Order Part 2.) at Mon 05:00 PM PST (1:58 from now).
Metric_Furlong: I mean, just to note 'lego' is the accepted plural in the UK whereas in the US it's 'legos' so attempts to appeal to 'how English works' are going to be difficult :p
AmoriLinguae: the Lego group can want that all they want, but the average person saying 'you should do as Lego says and not follow your natural speech' sounds like shaming to me
Rockario: Thinking about it, my usage pattern is basically that Lego is an adjective. But then I usually shorten the term "Lego Brick(s)" to "Lego"
Pteraspidomorphi: LEGO don't want people to say "legos" because it will become a colloquial word and they will lose their trademark
Pteraspidomorphi: Ignore them :)
AmoriLinguae: I'm not saying that "lego" as a plural is wrong
TehAmelie: but why wouldn't everyone want to say "LEGO™ Building Blocks"
PhoenixMelior: Lego as a plural is in fact correct
AmoriLinguae: I'm just saying that if anyone who speaks English encounters a new word without context, the plural is by default "add an s"
PhoenixMelior: and I also don't care that gif is pronounced with a soft g, it's a hard G.
adi_pie: Here's a question. Who cares?
adi_pie: Just say it how you please and move on.
Gizmoloid: Who cares? Philologists.
adi_pie: Neat. That sounds like their problem, not mine.
Metric_Furlong: PhoenixMelior "just like me, I'm graphic: 720p'
PhoenixMelior: Metric_Furlong exactly
AmoriLinguae: I care about people saying "legos is wrong" when it's not, it's one of two correct ways
PhoenixMelior: also, moose. There's only one correct way to pluralize moose: moose.
adi_pie: That's what I mean, Amori.
Rockario: Moosen! lrrBEEJ
AmoriLinguae: but moose isn't a new word
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: Many much moosen!
Metric_Furlong: Meese
adi_pie: Say it how you please, and let people that have nothing better to do waste their time trying to tell you different.
adi_pie: It's the internet. It's all wrong to begin with.
Metric_Furlong: !advice
LRRbot: Hit them in the crack!
Rockario: I'm now imagining if someone decided that "Buffalo" was plural and "Bison" was singular and folks started trying to justify it as a part of rigorous linguistic rules
TehAmelie: maybe elk was the singular of moose
Metric_Furlong: Rockario 1 Bison, add another bison and you have 2 buffalo. perfectly straightforward Kappa
margieargie: One of my favorite is that "pease" use to be singular, until people decided that it was -clearly- the plural of "pea".
TehAmelie: language is a mess. you can see the impulse to conquer China and straighten it all out
Rockario: @TehAmelie If there's 1 it's a caribou, but if there's more than 3 it's an elk-herd lrrBEEJ
margieargie: (note, may have had that slightly wrong, but i'm too sick to look it up)
PhoenixMelior: what's the buffalo sentence where it's a proper sentence? is it 7 or 8 buffalo
Gizmoloid: It's actually an interesting part of how language works: On one hand you literally can't control it since language is used by people and there are always people who talk how they like regardless of rules. On the other some manner of structure is necessary so that people who speak "wrong" are still understood.
Rockario: "Buffalo buffalo" buffalo "Buffalo buffalo"
