ninjaspinner: Hey Graham/Kathleen: Bit of a question. How active are you in the discord, and is it ever Okay to drop you a thank you message I don't want to be publc about?
drcanonball: lrrFRUMP ?
Dared00: There were rumors that MP4 failed because they were attempting the Ubisoft-like production where multiple studios co-develop the game
Kikazi: I believe Prime 4 is a thing, but I wish it was more of a thing
PharaohBender27: @SalmirAeon Yeah, I've noticed that happening sometimes during the "Coming Up" segment
GDwarf: ryuhimora It is, it's just being started over from the start due to some unknown issues with the project-to-date
Foxmar320: The VIP demo didn't work
Skyboss1996: Anthem's closed demo sure did happen
Karfsma778: It was a SHITSHOW
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 knows all about that...
AgentMagicMaster: VIP crashlanding more like
SAJewers: did graham try the anthem demo?
1losttheGame: it was the pre order demo, lets be real
Zath_: It was super fun
KartoffelKaiser: The Anthem demo is exactly what we should expect from EA
lectrican_man: it's weird how they didn't just call it closed
SalmirAeon: @PharaohBender27 ok good, not just me then
CoyoteSans: Well, that's a portent of good things to come, a-yup.
Foxmar320: I was in the VIP demo and didn't get to play it AT ALL
laskotheking: @LoadingReadyRun Is NDTewsday tomorrow what I think it is?
Alness49: Thanks Paul for the vote of confidence
ryuhimora: RIP Demo, HA
drcanonball: ea ddos'ed em shelves
LordZarano: Vaguely Important People
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: G is a katesRip
GDwarf: Network technology *does* suck
devil_dan: BIP Barely Important People
Skyboss1996: Transparent servers aren't normally a problem, however Transdimensional ones are
Maddrius: Early stress tests are good.
Foxmar320: Wait you were able to connect?!?!
Skyboss1996: Graham? Destiny? Yup. Checks out
Foxmar320: How?!
Dix: Aww fuck
Dix: lol
Zath_: I'm sure AWS is working on transdimensional
Dix: new addiction AHOY
Minteria: Mass effect died for Anthem... elaFeels
Dared00: It's not a bay-ta, it's a bee-ta Kappa
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 a few managed to get rhougfh and play for a bit. a few were streaming it
Mal2mad: Yeah! The robbits aren't weird or organic-looking enough to be warframe!
Foxmar320: I tried all weekend and couldn't get into the game at all.
Alness49: This is more of a Testfire
ContingentCat: oh yeah during BNF Kathleen said Destiny should be worried, is that still the case?
Kikazi: through*
1losttheGame: i really want to try it :/
Skyboss1996: Hmm. Twitch is being a little wierd today
Foxmar320: I tried streaming it. Sat for 30 minutes on the connection screen I was so mad.

Dared00: Destiny's Butt is my Destiny's Child cover band
AgentMagicMaster: Grammer Joeks
TheMoatman: Destiny's butt feels great to play?
Zath_: @1losttheGame There's an op en demo this weekend
frostfeuer: I got the 95% load glitch all weekend. Lost my progress repeatedly
korvys: @Skyboss1996 Oh, you too? Is it doing the freeze then catch up thing?
Blade_Tiger: "Destiny's butt feels great" - LRR
BillTheCat: the flying is the best thing
Gallium71: Yeh, just looking at the footage the gunplay looked, poor? Guns 'felt' like pea shooters
PharaohBender27: @Skyboss1996 Is it randomly freezing on you as well?
aesir_blade: Graham have you tried Warframe recently?
Skyboss1996: @korvys : Yup
togashinaruta: beta never has had an official definition, and every company defines it differently internally
1losttheGame: yeah, but who knows if i can play T_T work and all that @Zath_
Alness49: "If"
RayFK: But Destiny is bringing back the LAST WORD Kappa
angryoptimist: Hey, if you want satisfying butts, play Warframe. Kappa x 9000
BillTheCat: but I wish they made something with a story again :(
RayFK: How can they die?
Karfsma778: Oooh, third person
Mushbie: and one is EA...
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 yeah, I saw that. and several hours later, I saw some other streaming actually playing
Zath_: Both looter shooters, different gameplay
frostfeuer: Want to give it a shot but thinking division might be the way to go. Anthem feels like its trying to be warframe
Skyboss1996: also, lots of times when I boot twitch, I get the 4000 eror
Decaped: The same should be said of Warframe, so Bungie shouldn't really be worried.
drcanonball: warframe is still better
Kikazi: maybe it just took HOURS to get through?
PhoenixMelior: apparently the frame drops were NOT just me
GapFiller: speaking of streaming issues presumably the heavy buffering despite being on minimum video quality and no latency is on my end
Glodenox: Yeah, seems to be Twitch itself
Foxmar320: Anthem left a really bad impression on me.
lectrican_man: its not your fault. network technology just sucks
WrightJustice: oh its not just me
Beowulf_Bjornson: I found it to be much more fun than Destiny. The animations feel really good
Stoffern: RIP that one frame
Skyboss1996: It's a twitchy thing, Not a LRR thing
Gnuttor: Some video frame drops, but audio is ok.
KodeMage: I just assumed that was me, but yeah there's some buffering happening to the stream
PhoenixMelior: bye G
Zath_: Anthem feels way better than warframe to me, they have different combat systems by a lot
korvys: @LoadingReadyRun It's not really dropping frames, as holding them hostage, then releasing them all at once a few seconds later
CoyoteSans: But hey, why Destiny or Anthem... when you could The Division 2? ...yeah, no.
Jbeckfox: We gonna get that dice friends tonight? @loadingreadyrun
ContingentCat: enjoy your appointment G
GapFiller: bai G
Skyboss1996: Please do not bounce to hard G.
PharaohBender27 waves goodbye to Graham
1losttheGame: drop it!
angryoptimist: Bye G
accountmadeforants: Not sure how I feel about Destiny's gunplay being a bar to clear, though...
ninjaspinner: Peace Graham
TimbrePanic: Go tyour happointment
PhoenixMelior: remember G, eat all foods before bouncing nose
ryuhimora: Graham ASMR
Papperslappen: Graham is in my head
dredgyboi: talk about mountain goats
Karfsma778: For me it's not been frames, it's been both video and audio freezing then resuming. And sometimes the audio goes quite fuzzy
kamelion84: lol
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips

Skyboss1996: Kathleen "Double Mics" De Vere
VelvetFalcon: Bye.
ritchards: get Beej in!
Mal2mad: Why Destiny, Division or Anthem...When I can Warframe? Or MHW?
Skyboss1996: Bye
Amentur: Byebye G
DoodlestheGreat: Seeya , Graham!
lectrican_man: two mics is a pretty good nick
Laserbeaks_Fury: Binaural
prystigia: is it ... GOOD news??
richard_ermen: Da noose?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: Kathleen 2sheds Devere?
Zappeljakob: Kathleen, When Arcade Spirits is out, will you play it with Graham on Let's Kiss?
Skyboss1996: Beej! Beej you can come in now!
EvilBadman: the Xbox twitch app has been real bad for lrr streams recently. :\
PhoenixMelior: so I guess Kingdom Hearts is out tomorrow?
Mr_Dirty: now we can talk about G
hoktauri: chair-chan left in the corner unloved
Decaped: games can also succeed on really bad gameplay, see RDR.
GapFiller: admission time never really liked The Mountain Goats
RAICx: Two mics, for that binaural experience
dredgyboi: oooh cant wait
ContingentCat: yesss
ninjaspinner: I love this so much, you guys make me smile so much. Thanks for everything guys
GapFiller: just too many other bands doing what they do better
MelSlashVin: I can't wait for Dice Friends
Kikazi: woot!
jakale: the black hills, another source for mountain goats
Skyboss1996: Dice Frands
VelvetFalcon: You're basically a member of the mountain goats now!

PMAvers: Time to remove random boosters from all games.
PharaohBender27: It's a good thing the D&D campaign will be 10 episodes - I'll have to duck out early this week, and will miss next week's.
EvilBadman: @1losttheGame No, the dance lawsuits
ContingentCat: Isn't there a lot of legal questioning if blind boxes are gambling? This might be getting ahead of that
accountmadeforants: How unlike gambling can we make this while still being gambling?
CoyoteSans: The Belgians Are Angry
KartoffelKaiser: It turns out more competent democracies have determined that gambling is gambling, and that video game gambling with real money is still gambling
Spacepup: They probably don't give a poo about the players complaining, but governments are talking about regulation now.
Karfsma778: Definitely Not Gambling™
1losttheGame: oh, the dance one i get
Skyboss1996: *yet
jakale: yes, paying crime tokens is things publishers do not like
Gallium71: Late Capitalism: Let's sell gambling to children!
AgentMagicMaster: It's only a matter of time......
Glodenox: we got rid of it in Belgium, good riddance
Mr_Dirty: the plan b lootbox
RavingPenguin: Implying uwu is not menacing already
ArcOfTheConclave: e-poker is a game and gambling
Frankenfruity: What's the difference between those and Overwatch for example?
KartoffelKaiser: OwO what's this? *indites ur CEOs*
Drazoth: guess who had the !!FUN!! experience of spinning out on the highway in the middle of a snow storm
Rockario: Less "UwU" and "'ello, 'ello!"
TehAmelie: we could just install I Can't Believe it's Not Gambling on everyone's computers so they can get that dopamine hit for free
Lithobraker: Drazoth how's the adrenaline high?
HailtheRNG: personally, i'm sorta pissed that lootboxes are somehow allowed but I can't play poker online.
Skyboss1996: I still don't understand loot boxes when a store is already availible.
PharaohBender27: The biggest threat to capitalism isn't communism or socialism, it's people who push the envelope of capitalism WAY too far and make people start looking at communism and socialism as an alternative.
KartoffelKaiser: ^
1losttheGame: i would assume that it would change after you buy it as well though, and show the next one still
Gallium71: PharaohBender27 very true.
mtvcdm: That wouldn't be an x-ray lootbox then. It'd just be a lootbox.
1losttheGame: so people might just go through and buy until they see what they want still
devil_dan: That's how normal loot boxes work, Paul.
MelSlashVin: If Fortnite brings down capitalism I will be...unsurprised
SajuukSjet: look inside the bargain bin before you buy the bin
CoyoteSans: Nah, it'll be cryptocurrencies crashing.
Zanzabar_: Its a rotating item in a store
SajuukSjet: the bargain bin is cleared out every night
PharaohBender27: @MelSlashVin @CoyoteSans Why not both?
Mysticman89: It feels weird where loot boxes is mostly associated with shooty games these days instead of RPG things where loot is arguably the point
hoktauri: I'm too good for loot boxes, I only play gatcha games...
ContingentCat: that's a damn big fortune cookie
MelSlashVin: That's a big cookie
Skyboss1996: either that or big cookies
DoodlestheGreat: And a big cookie, too...
CoyoteSans: Invest in my new IPO: GatchaCoin!
korvys: @LoadingReadyRun Two words - Big Cookie
ryuhimora: alternatively, that's a really thin shirt
1losttheGame: dont you mean Japanese companies?
Gekyouryuu: @hoktauri I play both, but mostly only spend on gacha. mostly fgo
Gizmoloid: Big money for a big cookie!
Mal2mad: Clearly, we need to capture The Doctor
KinoGami: maybe blind box toys are also bullshit
Mysticman89: I figure the t-shirt would be origami'd like those ketchup cups that look tiny put pull into a full thing
1losttheGame: whats the government regulation on those in Japan?
ryuhimora: you could say it was a paper thin shirt
KartoffelKaiser: Can we just go back to knowing exactly what you're going to purchase before you buy it?
hoktauri: @Gekyouryuu I sold my soul to FFBE
KartoffelKaiser: MTG packs have limited, but if you buy packs just to crack them that is 100% gambling
EvilBadman: Most digital goods can't be resold if you stick to the TOS
ryuhimora: @RavingPenguin Yes, which is why selling cards is a Gray Market
prystigia: retire champion!
Mal2mad: Also, Magic cards have a market.
aesir_blade: I'd be just fine if MTG was forced to scrap the mythic rarity
KSmallmoon: and that opening is on video!
KharadBanar: @RavingPenguin WotC has been purposefully ignoring the secondary market for 25 years to be able to make the argument that it isn't
CoyoteSans: The thing about blind box boys is their existence doesn't affect my ability to enjoy regular toys.
CoyoteSans: *toys
Skyboss1996: Win once, retire champion
ContingentCat: My rule for blind box toys is only get them if I'd be happy with any of the options
PhoenixMelior: ^
red_shoes_jeff: Ringabel is the best character, after all.
Skyboss1996: the James Turner system of competition
Mysticman89: do kinder surprise count as a blind box toy?
CoyoteSans: Loot boxes affect my ability to enjoy the regular part of the game.
Rockario: Physical stuff is actually putting you in possession of something. Buying an in-game lootbox is actually just asking permission from the dev to borrow something.
ArcOfTheConclave: drafting isn't gambling
mtvcdm: The baseball card market has pretty much crashed.
PhoenixMelior: Mysticman89 I believe so, yes
Gallium71: Ah, baseball/football cards are true random therefore tend to get a pass.
Skyboss1996: No, because chocolate
PhoenixMelior: I mean, they USED to have collections
thefileclerk: @mysticman89 toy is too crap. also, chocolate.
brainbosh: Do the old cereal box toys count as blind boxes?
Mysticman89: so do we need gamblings laws for kinder surprise?
DKS04Saturn: Didn't they use to have collectible sets on kinder eggs before?
ritchards: wah? there's a lootbox problem in video games??
KartoffelKaiser: Ok but what if you just sold chocolate? Why do you need to put random toys in it?
Mysticman89: or even like the toys in a happy meal
tenthtechpriest: what's the implication of this on my happy meal toy?!
thefileclerk: @dks04saturn mack when they were made of metal
mtvcdm: People bought a gazillion baseball cards in the 80's and 90's thinking they'd be worth something someday. They still have them, and they won't be worth anything until most of those people lose them.
Castekken: What about the machines you put in 50 cents and get a plastic bubble with a toy
Aztren: i guess they could just do it with non-tangible content?
Mal2mad: South America here: Kinder Surprice are overpriced and way too sweet.
DocHoliday9999: They’ve had some Frozen and Jurassic World Kinder Eggs here in the States
Skyboss1996: It would be much better if the suprise was a solid chocolate kinder egg
Mr_Dirty: you could just make the law about digital items
Mal2mad: *Surprise
EvilBadman: You're getting a physical item vs. digital code.
accountmadeforants: Lootboxes being so brazen is definitely pushing that definition
mtvcdm: We have Kinder Joy now in the States. Meh.
togashinaruta: you'd be surprised what has collectors markets - you can't use that as a 'it's ok if someone else will buy it from me"
CoyoteSans: And Happy Meal Toys I believe you were allowed to specifically ask the cashier if they had a specfic toy in stock and give you that.
Castekken: Loot box is just the new quarter toy dispenser
Rockario: I can stop playing MTG forever, I can get DCI banned for whatever reason, but that doesn't mean Wizards gets to come andd confiscate my cards
Minteria: <message deleted>Only lootbox I've ever bought was for mass effect 3 multiplayer with microsoft points. I learned my lesson after that.
PharaohBender27: @mtvcdm That or someone spots some infamous criminal in the background, like with that one basketball car. :P
KartoffelKaiser: Yeah Blizzard does that in China. You get literal cents worth of gold, plus the loot box you actually wanted whenever you buy a loot box. Their line is that you're paying for the gold and the loot box is "free"
PharaohBender27: *card
KodeMage: Magic doesn't need random packs, it would survive without them. We have a solution, it's called Cube Draft.
Gallium71: I believe that there was a legal case in the UK with sticker albums, the 'line' being it must be true random and no variety in rarity.
lectrican_man: I think rarity based collecting is a pretty scummy gimmick be it candy or mcdonalds kids meals
thefileclerk: @mtvcdm kinder joy was origionally made for places too hot to sell the normal kinder.
GapFiller: animal cunning
Skyboss1996: the thing about compaines... they employ people to figure it out
Rekees0: how fortunate we have courts to interpret the intention of the law
ritchards: with the special Edrangel map
CoyoteSans: Unfortunately, they tend to lobe buisnesses.
Lysander_Gustav: I missed the show? Darn it.
Tiber727: I still hold that a judge would probably laugh at Blizzard if they took it to court, but no one's taken it to court yet.
PMAvers: And how much of the law is being sculpted by those corporations paying off Congresscritters.
Skyboss1996: PUBG also already looks like ARMA 2 soooooo
KharadBanar: !pubg
LRRbot: Plunder Under's Battle Grunder
CoyoteSans: Yeah, the one real saving grace is the video game industry still hasn't figured out how to rig the game through lobbying.
DKS04Saturn: Got rid of facebook about a year ago
CoyoteSans: Sadly, the tech companies have started to.
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: amazon warehouses, also horrible
PMAvers: Metroid Prime: doing the Final Fantasy VII remake thing, but will still probably come out before it.
KartoffelKaiser: Don't tell people that they get to make decisions if the do not, in fact, get to make decisions.

Minteria: <message deleted>@Dix OhGod please don't trigger my ptsd for that
PharaohBender27: @CoyoteSans Oh yeah. Speaking of Facebook, I remember reading about how they got Senator Schumer (whose daughter works for Facebook) to essentially kill a congressional inquiry
Laserbeaks_Fury: I tell you what, if Mass Effect 4 came out and suddenly my Shepard was shoehorned into a canon relationship I'd be pissed too
KartoffelKaiser: This is all about expectation management: Ubisoft made a huge deal about player agency, so taking it away made people rightfully mad. The thing they purchased was not actually the thing they were sold.
DirtCadaver: Ever run as a GM that completely ignore the story you setup for them to play
RAICx: Thank you mods! <3
TStodden is STILL waiting for Ubisoft to send his copy of AC: Odyssey for playtesting Project Stream...
Tiber727: As someone who doesn't play AC,I still don't understand it because I thought the point was that you are viewing a fixed history. That kinda contradicts player choice.
thefileclerk: @laserbeaks_fury what if he was a shoehorn?
Skyboss1996: Bone Zone will occour

TimbrePanic: yesss
ArcOfTheConclave: @Tiber727 MAGIIIIC!
Membranes1: @Tiber727 its a simulation based on historical DNA data
Skyboss1996: Steggos!

TimbrePanic: This was really wholesome
Lysander_Gustav: That's more stegasauruses than I was expecting
prystigia: GOTY
NathanJay_GA: ouy
PhoenixMelior: Leggo my Steggo
thefileclerk: that is lovely
lectrican_man: but how do steggos even bone. I've never understood!
Alness49: A significant amount of Steggo Boning occured
ContingentCat: what could go wrong
Skyboss1996: Unfortunately, I like the Ankylosaurus more
Laserbeaks_Fury: Fun Fact: Stepping on a Steggo is as painful as stepping on a LEGO
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: if you Steggo in the game, you Steggo in real life
CoyoteSans: The Assassin's Creed conceit is kinda stupid to hold onto considering the character it was designed to service is now literally a smear in a petri dish.
TehAmelie: a stegosaur pyramid scheme. . .there should be wordplay there somewhere
KartoffelKaiser: @Tiber727 Assassin's Creed has never had internal consistency.
margieargie: Jurassic World 3: Wow That's A Lot Of Stegosauruses
devil_dan: And that wasn't a good Checkpoint story?
Lysander_Gustav: Parents, talk to your kids about ethical stegasauruses
Tiber727: @Membranes1 I know it's a simulation. But what's the point of the simulation? Is it to learn about history by experiencing it?
Skyboss1996: Stegos
Gizmoloid: @lectrican_man very carefully. like hedgehogs?
GapFiller: thagomizers
TimbrePanic: That reminds me of Ooblets now
TStodden: Leggo those Preggo Streggos?
Skyboss1996: Remember, Kids. No steppo on Steggo
NathanJay_GA: "Elf Steg"
ArcOfTheConclave: Games done well?
Lysander_Gustav: I love that thagomizer turned into an actual scientific term
korvys: Yay! Rami is a cool dude.
CoyoteSans: @Tiber727 It was supposed to train a modern character to be an assassin. Then he Jesus'd, and now the bad guys stole his DNA to make video games out of.
korvys: And very tall
Amentur: Rami is such a grade A person lrrHEART
CoyoteSans: That's seriously the framing device now.
thefileclerk: oh, greaaaat.
TimbrePanic: Rami's accent is constatly evolving depending on where he is
CoyoteSans: Like, not even training simulations, it's literally in-universe UBisoft harvesting the past for video game ideas.
Decaped: @Tiber727 They use the simulation for information on super powerful artifacts still present in modern times.
angryoptimist: I kinda like Rami, and I really like Vlambeer.
Membranes1: @Tiber727 in odyssey the modern people are interested in finding the location of Atlantis which is more like an "alien" vault. so they need to explore the past world to find the clues etc

NeuterCommuter: Given the current exchange rate, its a great time to visit Canada.
GapFiller: kinda worrying how close visiting the one has become to visiting the other
Tiber727: Thanks for the information. It doesn't change my assessment that player agency in terms of romantic interests is completely meaningless in-story, which I guess is an argument both for and against the change.
NathanJay_GA: Dont countries have provisions for sports competitors? Are laws just not caught up to tech?
Skyboss1996: Being paid by a company in your home country in your own currency

DirtCadaver: STAR CITIZEN for the WIN
CoyoteSans: ugh
Skyboss1996: Star Citizen : the world's most successful Pyramid Scheme
CoyoteSans: why won't this studio die already
Lysander_Gustav: Is it persistent universe like Planetside?
LordZarano: Skyboss1996, no, that would be Bitcoin
Karfsma778: Star Citizen has been in production since APPROXIMATELY 1933
ContingentCat: I can't wait to hear how angry people will enevitably be when (/if) star citizen comes out and it's not what they expected
Skyboss1996: ah yup
ArcOfTheConclave: 100 ships in a instance to kill each other.

NathanJay_GA: Battle Royale inside a giant spaceship might be an interesting experiment
Gizmoloid: @ryuhimora Oh, right, the "genetic" part is kind of telling :) for some reason I remebered something about Abstergo getting his brain after he died.
togashinaruta: there's no bonus or drive to recruit others, so whatever you think of it, it's not a pyramid scheme
Lysander_Gustav: This seems like they actually made a plot excuse for battle royales
CoyoteSans: No, it's just a cult.
Lysander_Gustav: almost by accident
Gallium71: This seems like a lot of work to find your own fun?
KharadBanar: Honestly that sounds pretty rad
korvys: @togashinaruta Or maybe it's just a very flat pyramid?
Skyboss1996: yeah, they shifted from Pyrimid to cult a few years ago
DirtCadaver: its already pretty amazing and its not even "a game" yet
ContingentCat: it's not a pyramid scheme, it's just a normal scheme
Jikkarr: Bearing in mind Star Citizen already has a FPS mode in Star Marine.
accountmadeforants: As someone who backed Star Citizen from the very start and cut my losses: that sounds pretty rad!
Skyboss1996: big money. Real money

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ryuhimora! (Today's storm count: 25)
lectrican_man: im looking for videos of this. Apparently battle royal is a game mode in star citizen?
Skyboss1996: Now if that Emergent Gameplay could become actual game
TehAmelie: it goes all the way to the moon!
TimbrePanic: maybe in 2049
ZeniteZero: That feature backlog is miles long
ZeniteZero: Talk about scope creep
PhoenixMelior: worse than Peter Molyneux
Lysander_Gustav: Some decadent bastard pulls together a battle royale on his pleasure-barge. Kind of like the Emperor in Destiny.
DirtCadaver: the First person Game Squadron 42 should be out in 2 years
ryuhimora: Hey, a gift sub!
CoyoteSans: Star Citizen is literally the game from The Magic Circle.
togashinaruta: The game is going to release the same way gmail just stopped being beta one day
TehAmelie: because they're actually contractually obligated to come up with features to put all the money they're getting to use
ZeniteZero: @CoyoteSans omg, yes
Skyboss1996: They keep throwing us money! Uuuhhh... Add more stuff
Lyrathemighty: did you cover the Hbomber stream on a checkpoint?
mtvcdm: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Graham, Kathleen & Paul bring you the latest video game news) at Mon 02:00 PM PST (54m ago).
PhoenixMelior: they did
Lysander_Gustav: I think they did last week
ZeniteZero: moon2CUTE
DirtCadaver: yay, have you seen the Talent list from Squadron 42
mtvcdm: Thanks LRRBot you're a ton of help
Lyrathemighty: excellent ^_^
NathanJay_GA: woo!
Lysander_Gustav: The talent list for Squadron 42 is bonkers.
GenericEvilGenius: @Myrniss <3
togashinaruta: I don't know - that seems like exactly what they're doing - the betas have come a long way from when it was just a hanger
Myrniss: @GenericEvilGenius lrrHEART
PhoenixMelior: crapshot idea
Lysander_Gustav: Though I would prefer if Gillian Anderson was the main character instead of the generic buzz-cut guy.
ZeniteZero: Hmmmm... coffee... too bad it's almost 9pm here T_T
Skyboss1996: B&W shots of serge making one cup of coffee
PharaohBender27: !storm

PharaohBender27: cheer133
solahwin_tampramain: chill point = over :(
TehAmelie: we have a very vague concept of "releasing" a game these days, except when it comes to Star Citizen where it's apparently never released enough to count. . .
Skyboss1996: Uhhh
Skyboss1996: Hmm
Skyboss1996: There, fixed.
NovaTiempo: Evening all! ... oh. subcall. Back to the VoD!
GapFiller: frozen stream is frozen
LordChrusher: cheer100
ZeniteZero: LUL
Skyboss1996: OwO!
ryuhimora: NorthOS sounds kinda cool acttually
red_shoes_jeff: I'm just now reminded, they're giving 13 Ghosts a conclusion, at long last.
ryuhimora: Hey, Kathleen said my name right!
GapFiller: LoadingReadyRun also interesting that my sub didnt turn up presumably due to subbing too early
Skyboss1996: 5:00 PST
GapFiller: how early is it too early to sub to the channel for a given stream then?
Castekken: WhAts next

mtvcdm: When you eat cookie dough, you're telling the world how few busses you give.

Rhynerd: Thanks for the stream!
rennz17: It will be just Ben let’s be honest Adam is there to watch Ben play a game
Amentur: Overly convoluted Squenix cookie dough
Earthenone: road quest is still hopeing to be out this spring as far as i know
Phailhammer: cya :)
TehAmelie: ya thanks
PharaohBender27: @StephenJM81 Still in the editing mines. From the PAX, it sounded like they still need to color correct the footage
StephenJM81: ok, thanks @PharaohBender27
TehAmelie: that snark wasn't directed at Kathleen, just this pervasive and strange judgment on Star Citizen we as a society apparently have converged on
PharaohBender27: @StephenJM81 That is, if I'm remembering correctly :P
PhoenixMelior: eek, Toronto is undera big winter snowstorm
PhoenixMelior: looks like things will be better by the time I leave, but it certainly looks bleak now lol
TimbrePanic: yuup, snowed in everywhere in southern ontario
TehAmelie: where it's nominally "not released" while in practice being sold and played and constantly developed just like an old MMO
TehAmelie: and that makes the whole game a scam
PhoenixMelior: hope you guys are doing okay
Kamotetop: !nest

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Dice Friends (Kathleen leads our heroes through the means streets of Ravnica. This is Bylaw & Order Part 3.) at Mon 05:00 PM PST (1:54 from now).
cheetoJack: who overclocked this winter? they need to turn it down again
PhoenixMelior: that's what happened to our winter
PhoenixMelior: it got spread out
cheetoJack: oh so Wednesday's temperatures are Calgary's fault?
PhoenixMelior: I'll let you know once I learn how to spell Indy
PhoenixMelior: ah, yes. Yes those are our fault.
cheetoJack: -13F/-25C low, -1F/-17 high
PhoenixMelior: Looks like that's the temperature I expected it to be the day I left
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:01:17.
cheetoJack: Once I get into single digits of Farenheit I know its very cold... but negative double digits is much worse
PhoenixMelior: oh, someone left the stream on
PhoenixMelior: LoadingReadyRun you're still live, if anyone's there to see this
Juliamon: Notified.
PhoenixMelior: cheers Juliamon
LoadingReadyRun: lrrSLOTH
malc: "have you tried turning it...off"
TehAmelie: !badadvice
LRRbot: Mutiny! Mutiny!
TehAmelie: dangit
GapFiller: !advice
LRRbot: Keep yourself in the Molotov Range.
GapFiller: that doesnt sound much better
malc: !badadvice
LRRbot: Punch the axe.
malc: ow
malc: didn't help
TehAmelie: you're supposed to do the opposite of badadvice
margieargie: !badadvice
LRRbot: Bake your sword into a loaf of french bread.
TehAmelie: probably not chopping your fist with the axe in this case though
margieargie: I don't know, I kind of like that one.
TehAmelie: i think it came from Dice Friends where someone observed the classic prison gag of baking contraband into bread would work badly if you tried to pass off a distinctly sword-shaped baguette
TehAmelie: the someone may even have been me :x
