Nightvalien28: why is the game half life, what was the category this week, nostalgia?
Earthenone: half life stream confirmed
TXC2: CONTACT!
wildpeaks: time for John Freeman to kick all the things
KharadBanar: SIGNAL
TXC2: the category was Classic FPS games
TheWarbo: "classic FPS"
thegreatwyrdling: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:06.
Nigouki: so, any bets on how far they'll get in 3 hours? Blast Pit? Apprehension?
Twinklebees: That stinger.
TubeAlloy: Is it HL:Source or the original?
TXC2: presumably source
frnknstn: They will make it to the first giant claw finger thing
TubeAlloy: I like source but the controls are so slippy
NathanJay_GA: Theyre waiting for you, Gordon. In the test chamber.
TXC2: Here we go!
TubeAlloy: Given the 15 minute intro I think they might get to the lava pit
wildpeaks: time to have a totally normal day at the office and nothing goes wrong
accountmadeforants: Oh hey, it's the prequel to Hunt Down The Freeman! seabatTROG
niivvy: mangoJabroni did somebody say half life
GloriousMost: lrrHORN lrrHORN
TXC2: Hello James and Paul
wildpeaks: that Chance fella sure has a lot of games
TheWarbo: Games of Chants?
wicker_knight: HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED gabyWow
wicker_knight: aww lrrAWW
TheWarbo: Hey James did you hear if you made Half-Life partner?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oooooo
TXC2: I mean having a Streamer showcase Half life 3 would probably be a good idea
TubeAlloy: HL3 - coming to a phone near you! :D
Nigouki: i'm pretty sure Alex and Cam streamed Half-Life on Talking Sim within the past 3 years
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: is this OG Half-Life or the Black Mesa source remake? Because the Black Mesa remake is REALLY good.
TubeAlloy: oh yeah I forgot about black mesa
Jarannis: I'm super hyped for this! Half-Life was the start of my gaming addiction
TubeAlloy: it's not finished though is it?
TXC2: Nigouki indeed they have
Narcogen: what no Marathon?
Nigouki: Crysis is super good actually, once you get past the benchmark meme
Robot_Bones: wow I feel old with halo in that list with these others
wicker_knight: no HALO?
accountmadeforants: Crysis is great, yeah
Hingadora: No Dark Forces on the list?
wicker_knight: oh it was
TheWarbo: I feel like there exist classic games with "new" in the title
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Black Mesa is sort-of finished in that I don't think the Xen levels are released, but the Xen levels are also terrible and nobody likes them anyway.
TubeAlloy: Doom is still amazing if you use a source port
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Black Mesa Source as released is definitely a full game with plenty of content.
fuzzygenius: they're working on the xen levels too
TXC2: then the nostalgia would were off, and we'd realise just how bad it was
GloriousMost: lots of those golden eye records have held for like 5 + years

lithuasil: Don't worry James, you didn't miss much
TXC2: the only Half life game I've played was the demo of opposing force :P
wildpeaks: well now we know to all vote HL2 for next Game of chance :D
TXC2: yes, 'cause it takes SOOOO LOOOOONG for Paul to grow a beard Kappa
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: fun fact: I currently work at basically the real Black Mesa. I pass the actual literal Black Mesa (as in a mesa that is black) on the way to work every morning. I have a Black Mesa coffee mug.

wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I have some guesses where you might mean, and none of them are places where I'd be comfortable hearing that the staff think of themselves as being part of Black Mesa lrrSPOOP
frnknstn: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou are you hiring people with a background in advanced materials?
SomebodyNowhere: feel free to look around
wildpeaks: I cannot not hear Freeman's Mind when seeing this intro
rocketjohn: So chat, and @LoadingReadyRun - how many people failed to move in this introduction, assuming it was a movie?
rocketjohn: when first playing
SomebodyNowhere: its made of science
Makhiel: Oh wait, I remember this I managed to fall to my death here and then never played this again

wicker_knight: It's a Carbon Fiber Strut supporting a Cobalt-Iron Maglev system
TubeAlloy: They really let the architects just go to town :)
wicker_knight: the strut is capable of extending for X00 meters without additional support
KharadBanar: It means "almost as old as me"
wicker_knight: oh, Gordon is a lot younger than I thought
TubeAlloy: James you can clip out and die!

TubeAlloy: Yeah later on things get real tense when there's platforming
GeeItSomeLaldy: isthis modded
Schwarm_: hmm.. Never got past the first hour of this game.
SomebodyNowhere: gman
Pal_Friendpatine: This is the flipping LONGEST intro evar!!!!
Jarannis: The Source version was the same game on the Source engine with the same assets, and Black Mesa Source was a full redesign with fresh assets that were re-modeled from scratch
GeeItSomeLaldy: it sounds like a different vo
frnknstn: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou how about a position in security or materials handling? I hear there may be openings
Pal_Friendpatine: WHy? WHy?? So long!!
KharadBanar: Frame drops?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh yeah we're always hiring in security
TheWarbo: I think the answer to "how far into the game will we get" is "halfway through the intro"
Nightvalien28: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou because they quit or because they simply disappear?
GeeItSomeLaldy: ah, its hl source
SomebodyNowhere: barry the every security guard
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it's funny, I can kinda age-date anyone who comes in my office, because everyone about 35 or lower will laugh at the Black Mesa coffee mug and anyone older will be like "what defense contractor is that"
buckminst: Blah blah blah, Mr. Freeman.
KharadBanar: @GeeItSomeLaldy that's not source, it's the OG thing
Jarannis: "GoldSource"
TXC2: this looks good for OG
slagyo: so this is halflife: sonic unleased?
SomebodyNowhere: didn't you realize gordon butters the bottoms of his shoes
wildpeaks: sheesh, Gordon sure is twitchy, can't stand in place for half a second
buckminst: They're waiting for you, Gordon... ... in the TEST CHAMBER.
GeeItSomeLaldy: models are different though. is this the high poly models then?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Black Mesa Source is the real Half-Life Source edition
NathanJay_GA: remember to reset the security guards computer Kappa
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I recommend trying Black Mesa Source if you get a chance
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou My father occassionally wonders out loud how much Marvel paid to let the Stark Industries logo be so similar to Lockheed Martin's
TXC2: tup tup tup tup tup tup tup
TheWooglie: is your sensitivy high?
Pal_Friendpatine: So this is a 90 hour game and 40 hours is just riding carts and waiting for doors to open?

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh my god when Breen is yelling at the guards like "HE'S NOT EVEN A PROFESSOR"
ArcOfTheConclave: didn't Simic Paul wear the crab hat?
SomebodyNowhere: in this version can you play with the microwave
accountmadeforants: It's good to see you, vending machine.
frnknstn: use the microwave in the break room

kainboa: yes, a protective suit that protects everything except the head... you know, the most important thing you have...
TheAinMAP: No mirror? Are there no restrooms here?
rocketjohn: hazard suits have helmets
SaintFoxx: with his head. Back when he had a ponytail
Nightvalien28: they teleport their poop
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou hopefully he's not wearing denim under the hazard suit
TXC2: !addquote (Paul) [now] All physics labs are in the 90's.
LRRbot: New quote #5782: "All physics labs are in the 90's." —Paul [2019-01-31]
GeeItSomeLaldy: He's wearing a black poloshirt with orange highlights. Stealing Beej's look
head_cannon: The art never depicts Gordon wearing a helmet, but I always assumed it was there, just not rendered in the HUD. That would explain why the Headcrabs could never infest you, only scratch at you.
TheWarbo: James, *they*'re the physicists. I think they understand airlocks better than you do. :-P
Abavus: There seems to be some considerable safety issues with this building

GeeItSomeLaldy: What's great is that the speedrun would be half way through the game by now :D
adi_pie: Dr. Kleiner?
someone_evil: Why did you need a hazmat suit, but these people don't?
GeeItSomeLaldy: Ah, they start at the end of the journey
Narcogen: Because they aren't going in the test chamberrrr
wildpeaks: because they stay out of the test chamber ?
TXC2: I wager you clip out of the train
Meyari: @txc2, yeah, sometime in spring/summer I think
head_cannon: @someone_evil They're monitoring the test chamber from their stations. You're the one going inside.
jjaakee: they start the save after the train
Gizmoloid: @NathanJay_GA At least two things :)
SomebodyNowhere: gordon's job requires the suit because he's going into the test chamberrrrrrrrrr
jjaakee: they just load in before the door to reception opens
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: there is actually a canonical generic scientist who is actually Kleiner from Half-Life 2
mtvcdm: lrrFINE

GeeItSomeLaldy: The Sonic 1 speedrun was SWAG though

godort: OG Half Life? Baller
GeeItSomeLaldy: Fun Fact, that's Eli Vance
head_cannon: It's easy to take for granted that "story in an FPS" wasn't really a thing before this game. I still love how it takes Doom's excuse plot and plays the whole thing straight.
Moonspeak721: why would gordon not have access to his own lab
wildpeaks: caution laser caution laser
Vallulv: oh no laser leak!"

wildpeaks: Crowbar is Ready
wicker_knight: @Moonspeak721 because he's entry-level
KidAmn: MAD science, yo.
SomebodyNowhere: apply some science to those things
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah, IIRC one of the reasons Half-Life made such a splash at the time was its realism. Not in graphics or anything, but in things like "the weapons you find are in logical locations and not floating above the ground & spinning"
GeeItSomeLaldy: This isn't the first accident Gordon's caused, they locked him out after the last time

Vallulv: this is why scientist whear glases
Moonspeak721: you did this
Emergent_OS: I half-suspect, that there is a line in everyone's employment contract, that reads: "Black Mesa holds no responsibility In case of the cascading resonance..."

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Gordon's aim with a gun might seem unrealistic, but remember that he is an MIT grad, and MIT has a pistol club that routinely beats the military academies. True story.
auxv: no far cry,
TheWriterAleph: that's how you science!
wildpeaks: science solves everything
Gizmoloid: :D
SomebodyNowhere: LUL
GeeItSomeLaldy: \o/
wildpeaks: short game LUL
TheWooglie: There is a quick save button
SAiconjr: yeah, breaking the electronic lock opens the door, not prevents you from ever opening it again
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou with respect, the military academies don't feel like they have time to waste teaching people to shoot pistols :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: apparently not
ArcOfTheConclave: that is failsafe
tux789: he has to do it atleast a hundred times for it to truely be science
Nigouki: just up ramp
Nigouki: to the vent
wordswords1: have either of you played this before?
akssoon: Room; look UP
wicker_knight: from what I hear, it's a common trope in military academies that FPS geeks are consistently among the best marksmen
TXC2: Yeah if you have to use your sidearm in a battle, shits gone sideways
GeeItSomeLaldy: murderer
zaalzar: military has to teach its personnel either; suicide rate among the military is depressing
Sethro420: Imagine if science was this cool in school
SomebodyNowhere: remember alex' old HL2 streams, it seems like so very long ago
ayirbudd: have either of you guys played this before?
Nigouki: in the room there's an exit vent
wordswords1: there's a vent up a ramp
head_cannon: The room you crawled through a vent to get into has a second vent to crawl out of.
Enmity777: in the headcrab room
wicker_knight: this game is almost as old as Ben
TheWarbo: go up
TheWooglie: I plsyed black mesa a bit when that came out
GeeItSomeLaldy: in the explodey room
akssoon: Breast ahead
TheWooglie: played
Gizmoloid: There's another vent in the headcrab room
TXC2: 20 Years ago I think I was playing Theme hospital :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the Black Mesa Source mod is super good and I recommend it
ayirbudd: cool was just curious! this is a classic
frnknstn: The server room
GeeItSomeLaldy: the explodey computer room
NathanJay_GA: The one where you healed

ReynardWrecca: 20 years ago? Gap year; White Russians, riding around on scooters, listening to Beck 'Odelay', Goldeneye on N64.
TheWarbo: First Player Sciencer

RAICx: Now he'll never be able to finish that report
Emergent_OS: Holy Cow how Level Design advanced in the past 20 years. In terms of readability, sense of direction and natural affordances...
akssoon: through door
akssoon: glass broken
TheWriterAleph: because no iron sights, kid!
Zebunisher: you should pick it up, Paul
head_cannon: Right-click is alt-fire for your weapons.
frnknstn: some guns have alt-fire
Nigouki: one is single fire one is triple
SomebodyNowhere: HL doesn't iron sight
wicker_knight: @Emergent_OS have you tried to play the original HALO recently? It's labyrinthine lrrSPOOP
sivakrytos: yes
Nigouki: also this seems like it's not the OG HL, but the Blue-Shift texture pack
BleedingToast: the epic store were giving it away for free last month
Gizmoloid: Oh yeah, this game was WAY before iron sights.
Jarannis: Gotta love the "Right Click To Fire Faster" on the stock handgun
Pandalore: where you got the gun
akssoon: The glass door

SAiconjr: real dogs with rabies that want to eat your brains
KharadBanar: @LoadingReadyRun Epic Games want people to install their launcher, so they're giving away games on it
tux789: guys you do know how government spending works, if you dont use it this year you wont get it next year
Emergent_OS: @wicker_knight Wholeheartedly agree. Progress, that we take for granted these days.
wordswords1: right now I think jackbox party pack is free
TXC2: 3, 3 shots, ah ah ah
GeeItSomeLaldy: I mean it's not like they have a killer app like Valve did Kappa
incslayer: @LoadingReadyRun no they switch free games every two weeks but if you claim it you get to keep it
SomebodyNowhere: freeman has brawn?
khalmoro: creators are also getting Subnautica Below Zero early access from epic
KharadBanar: look at me doing free marketing for Epic, I'm such a sucker
GeeItSomeLaldy: PINEAPPLES!
SomebodyNowhere: just a bunch of grenades
malc: oh wow, Half Life
noSmokeFire: the grenades are big because they're full of science
Bakufreak: I set up a biweekly notification in Google Calendar for all of 2019 just to remind me of the free games on Epic Games lol
rocketjohn: I am deeply upset that Epic have abandonded the Unreal Tournement remake.
TXC2: that's a fucking demo charge is what that is
Emergent_OS: I think EA Origin also gives out free games, but I am not sure.
SomebodyNowhere: that guy hiding in the dumpster
GeeItSomeLaldy: I mean Epic basically handed it over to the community from day one. It was pretty much doomed when Fortnite got big
noSmokeFire: I love Albert Einstein whack-a-moleing out of a dumpster
KharadBanar: what a piece of human garbage Kappa
SAiconjr: half life in Half-Life ... heh
rocketjohn: would you say he has.. half-life?
noSmokeFire: you're having some kind of half-life, full-life consequence
Gizmoloid: Safe scientists can heal you a bit.
SAiconjr: what's the half life of your half life in Half-Life?
GeeItSomeLaldy: I mean with 100 max HP and 100 max AR he's at 1/4 life
Gizmoloid: Oh too late
Makhiel: I know nothing about the lore, are those legally-distinct xenomorphs?
accountmadeforants: So why would you put the valve there?
TXC2: some half semi charmed kinda life Kappa
wicker_knight: @Makhiel legally distinct facehuggers, yes
GeeItSomeLaldy: They have 3 arms @Makhiel - they're totally different
KharadBanar: Is this Subnautica? Kappa
TubeAlloy: It's amazing how little the lead radiation suit weighs
malc: wheeeeeeesplat
SomebodyNowhere: awwww
Mangledpixel: you're supposed to get on it quickly, yes
accountmadeforants: Same reason the valve for raising the water was in the area where the water would flood into
KharadBanar: because it's a cargo elevator
Mangledpixel: and then the headcrabs fall on you
head_cannon: @TubeAlloy Based on the battery use for sprinting that existed in Half-Life 2, it's kind of like power armor.
Rounin7: 98
tux789: 98?
Nigouki: 1998
GeeItSomeLaldy: end of 1997
NathanJay_GA: batter up!

wicker_knight: what kind of awful god would make it rain headcrabs gabyB

Mangledpixel: @LoadingReadyRun there was a health machine back there
buckminst: Marathon! <3
Mangledpixel: you were standing right by it
NathanJay_GA: remember, you can sometimes find stuff in crates
Gizmoloid: HEALTH STATION where you got off the elevator by the way.
RAICx: Might want to heal
TXC2: Interestingly, Tomb Raider 3 came out the day after this
TubeAlloy: I thought I knew all the classic fps but I've never heard of Marathon, was it not big in Europe or something?
Nigouki: just stick yourself into this socket on the wall and regain health
buckminst: TubeAlloy It was on the Macintosh
TXC2: and Ocarina of time 4 days after
holir_: PARKOUR!
buckminst: So, probably not =)
TubeAlloy: Ah ok that makes sense @buckminst
dormouss: oh goodness. The hours I spent playing Marathon when I was supposed to be doing homework.
TubeAlloy: cheers :D
tux789: how does one get marathon now?
buckminst: I played and beat both Marathon 1 and 2, but never completed Infinity
accountmadeforants: Implying Wolfenstein 3D doesn't have the deepest lore
head_cannon: @NathanJay_GA Smashing the storage crates looking for useful supplies is another thing that this game tried as an alternative to "ammo and health packs sprinkled around arbitrarily", which I think was cool.
TXC2: also this came out the same year as Resident evil 2
Pandalore: break boxes get things
TheWooglie: Didn't both Dark Forces games out before this? They had great stories
wicker_knight: new marathon when they add it as an arcade machine in destiny 3
buckminst: Didn't Infinity wrap up Marathon's story?
GeeItSomeLaldy: They'll release a new Marathon but they'll change the name to Snickers
GeeItSomeLaldy: I don't know if that joke translates well to NA
TubeAlloy: You need to feed boxes to your crowbar to keep it happy
mahpete_: !uptime

TXC2: GeeItSomeLaldy I dont believe it does, by I found it funny
singedwhiskers123: @kharadbanar yup
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the MIDA Multitool in Destiny is implied to have come from the Marathon universe, so it's still knocking around

MrRumdum: i havent seen someone new to half life 1 in a long time, this is special to me
invaderJim0: I was drunk, but I'm still here
TXC2: Spirrie Canadian highland is 1 on 1, 20 life, no ban list, but some cards are pointed, max of 10 points per 100 cards
wicker_knight: @Spirrie commander requires a "commander card" which is always available in it's own zone and also limits the color identity of cards in the deck. Highlander does not
KharadBanar: turns out the water wasn't deadly all along
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Half-Life's brilliance was also having genuinely hard enemies. The marines in this game coordinate and act with intelligence and are still SO FREAKING HARD
Lightningbro: LRR adjacent question, when does Ben stream. I can go check... But I'm here anyway, and I'm sure someone knows off the top of their head
GeeItSomeLaldy: Yeah, Game AI's not really advanced since HL, which is a shame
Spirrie: @wicker_knight Oh, so just 100 card Singleton? Thanks!
coriolis_storm: @Spirrie Highlander is one on one, and you don't have a commander that you can repeatedly play
noSmokeFire: how left these science crates hanging there?
malc: you don't _have_ any feet!
NathanJay_GA: Ah yes, the box smashing room
TheWriterAleph: Marathon Remastered plz
wicker_knight: @Spirrie basically. The different highlander regional variations have different ways of handling powerful cards. TXC2's post earlier outlines how Canadian Highlander does it
mtvcdm: Feet are a state of mind, not of body.
TXC2: got get them Mirror's edge strats Kappa
SomebodyNowhere: and somehow first person platforming has not really gotten any better in 20 years
frnknstn: Plus the responsiveness of the enivonment was unusual. Different materials in the floor make different footfall sounds, different bullet holes...
mtvcdm: Mirror's Edge lets you see your feet.
TheWooglie: there's a command
GeeItSomeLaldy: I mean Mirrors Edge was the only serious attempt at it and that was dizzying
wicker_knight: @Lightningbro I believe there's a calendar on his channel. I don't know when he streams today
MrRumdum: I played half-life jump maps, so no FPS platforming can scare me
Psychic_Ketchup: Lightningbro Today should be at 9PM Lrr time

spartan117180: This is my first stream that I have watched from the LRR crew! The main reason I have not watched sooner was because I did not think that Twitch was free.
TXC2: well welcome spartan117180
coriolis_storm: Surprisingly calm scientist WutFace
hanrat: Now you know
mtvcdm: !youtube
LRRbot: All our streams get archived on a dedicated YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/loadingreadylive (for non-stream videos, the main channel is http://www.youtube.com/loadingreadyrun)
TXC2: 3? more like 5 :P
head_cannon: Good, James has learned to try breaking the glass before giving up and backtracking.
RebekahWSD: "Everything is going to hell, but everything is fine with me" said the scientist
malc: haha
SomebodyNowhere: wow
frnknstn: lol
wicker_knight: lrrWOW
malc: James wasn't a fan
wordswords1: @LoadingReadyRun I'm curious if you know from where do most of your new viewers and fans come from?
Lightningbro: Yeah, I found your streams via random youtube browsing a year or so back. and I've been enjoying everything since.
malsareus: a fan-tality occured
spartan117180: Don't worry Paul I have been watching your content on YouTube for a while now.
TXC2: then again we still dont have the final stream of the GPLP of Metal gear rising up on youtube :P
wordswords1: you guys put out a lot of different content, I wonder what draws people in the most
GeeItSomeLaldy: Last year I saw a streamer play HL1 for the first time ever, on Hard Mode, and regretted it in that room (it basically instagibbed them)
TheAinMAP: Made it past deadly aliens. Defeated by fan.
noSmokeFire: is this sokoban :o
wildpeaks: I'm guessing MTG is a big factor
SomebodyNowhere: your crowbar wont run out of ammo
ArcOfTheConclave: friday nights for me
iSmartMan1: To clarify, is this with the Blue Shift texture pack? Most of the graphics look like original HL and not HL Source, but I don't remember the pistol looking like that
mtvcdm: Every time the topic comes up everyone seems to have different answers.
Meyari: Desert Bus for me
SomebodyNowhere: shortgun
TemporallyAwry: Unskipable was good - DailyDrop made me subscribe to the RSS ... now twitch.
TXC2: I came in from Desert bus/ the escapeist
Rounin7: no, it has hd skins
mtvcdm: Almost every piece of content seems to wrangle somebody.
GeeItSomeLaldy: This does have the HD textures/Models
Nigouki: this is definitely the HD skins from Blue-Shift
hanrat: What did you think about that recent DK charity stream?
mtvcdm: For me it was Checkpoint on Penny Arcade.
TrickJarrett: ohai friends
Jarannis: I think they replaced the original textures on Steam at some point with the HD skins
GeeItSomeLaldy: you don't need Blue Shift for it
Rounin7: this is not original shotgun model
MrRumdum: These are the HD models yea
TXC2: Hello TrickJarrett welcome
Psychic_Ketchup: I was one of the unskippable ones back in 2011
Sethro420: Shotgun science
GDwarf: Definitely Unskippable, then GPLP (Pre-Twitch), which segued nicely into the Twitch streams
TheWarbo: Yeah I was via Checkpoint on PA too
GeeItSomeLaldy: There's a tickbox in options to turn them off
wordswords1: you should consider another survey, it could be an interesting thing to find out
Gizmoloid: Zombie model looks like it does have HD Pack installed.
Barb4rian: Checkpoint, PA, and mostly Strip Search here
CrazymattCaptain: smash everything
brmurnane: That mechanical keyboard though...sounds amazing
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah I watched Desert Bus starting at 4 but didn't realize till 7 that the crew that did it also did other stuff. I think I randomly stumbled across a stream replay on Youtube...actually now that I think about it I thjink it was the inaugural Let's Nope (which I still love)
MrSVCD: @LoadingReadyRun Blueshift graphics are in the default install.
malc: after 20 years this game still has bugs? ;)
TheWarbo: he's in storage
RAICx: I found your how to talk like a pirate video on the international talk like a pirate day website, like 17 years ago?
GeeItSomeLaldy: There's an option in settings to go back to the *real* og graphics and turn off the HD pack
Lightningbro: "Here's Johnny" that movie would've went WAY different if she had an assault shotgun in that scene
TheWriterAleph: so the original 1006 graphics were worse than this...?
Lapinelis: That's some fast speed crowbarring, I couldn't do that.
TheWriterAleph: *1996
TXC2: fun fact: I only started watching LRR because moviebob did a phone in on desert bus 5 :P
wicker_knight: DO IT
wicker_knight: DoItDoItDoItDoItDoIt
TXC2: TheWriterAleph this game came out in 1998
wildpeaks: yesss
wicker_knight: let the look at that tiling
malc: threee deeee
GeeItSomeLaldy: now you'll have even more FPS
Nigouki: go to your pistol, it's magically a Glock now
TXC2: the crowbar is thinner and shinyer
Meyari: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou, me too. I heard about DB4, watched DB5 and didn't realize until they started regularly livestreaming that they did other stuff
wendigo4481: I love how old school games essentially have you running around with your left arm tied to your waist.
head_cannon: I do like the classic 3d models in this game.
TheWriterAleph: @TXC2 cool i typed the number wrong twice LUL
ReynardWrecca: I started watching LRR because someone I watched the first Unskippable and realised it was the 'Talk Like A Pirate' people.
malc: !sir
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ladders are like the third eternal curse of FPSes
TXC2: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You are being very aggressive, I'm going to need you to simmer down.
SomebodyNowhere: turret you need to chill
Psychic_Ketchup: That's some powerful science
Lapinelis: I think I started when all you did was skits in somesort of lrr specific website I don't remember anymore.

NojhLivic: "Good night"

quietbutlouder: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou black mesa design cons: not cute, fall over like cards
GeeItSomeLaldy: Crouch jump
Lapinelis: jump crouch, no?
BrindleBoar: this is pre-mantle tech
Papperslappen: crouch jump?
NathanJay_GA: crouch jump?
devil_dan: Crouch jump?
noSmokeFire: bunny-hop with a grenade
MrRumdum: "I'm different"
TemporallyAwry: I believe you have to get the box from the hallway if you want it.
Asimech: Freeman's Mind makes this game look so nice with the mantling bits.
Zebunisher: now if ony you could GRAB stuff
Nigouki: you can drag the crates by using E and walking back
TXC2: coriolis_storm I dare to presume you've seen the Stream LRR have done of Cards against humanity?
MrRumdum: the box is too high for crouch jump
frnknstn: Move the boxes with E?
Robot_Bones: just crit
Psychic_Ketchup: Yeah just rocket jump, nbd
head_cannon: One thing I can't defend in Half-Life's case is how the crouch-jump is only mentioned in the optional tutorial, and the first time it's needed, the player might be completely lost.
wicker_knight: that's QUAKE reflexes in Action! lrrSLOTH
devil_dan: That crate stood no chance.
Nigouki: should have picked Crysis if you wanted lean buttons
Robot_Bones: look at those shoots now we know why james is pubg champ
Nigouki: which also turn into yaw buttons later :3
TXC2: this is a very weak shotgun
SomebodyNowhere: phd level scientist jumping up and down next to a box, yeah this guy is going to become the next savior of man
MrRumdum: Did you two play HL2?
Asimech: Bah. I did the same with one of the hands in Blood once. Required me to *kneel* to hit them. And I *one shotted* them. (Let's ignore that I emptied both barrels and the first one would've been enough.)
noSmokeFire: he has to go to sleep now. it's his bed time
SomebodyNowhere: I'm sure they're fine

benegesseritmother: new guy to lead into a trap

Psychic_Ketchup: Hey Ben!

wicker_knight: ohai
tenthtechpriest: hi ben
HesGotNoPants: @bengineering did you eat the simic slaw?
Uzumaki15: Hi Ben
SomebodyNowhere: benginHi
GDwarf: Those sure are lip flaps
noSmokeFire: wow, his mouth is unpleasant
GeeItSomeLaldy: Mmm... top side. I need beef
benegesseritmother: damn what that mouth dp
TXC2: yes, "save" us
TheWarbo: Ahh, Thursdays. Ben yelling things at GoC & LRRMtG from the other room
quietbutlouder: i love how they're your pals in HL2, but killin the vortigaunts here feels sad now
Bengineering: @HesGotNoPants whats a simic slaw
Asimech: "They're coming in, alright." Lewd, Paul.
Nigouki: get ready for one of the top 10 anime betrayals
tux789: yeah fps' got confused about the difference between a double barrell and a magazine tube for many years
frnknstn: Those flappy mouths were state-of-the-art in 1998
HesGotNoPants: @bengineering you know who it is.
CrazymattCaptain: abuse the infinite ammo of guards

SomebodyNowhere: are you really skipping the health machine
TXC2: speaking of, whose Idea was Mosh, and how do we get it to WotC?
KharadBanar: Really good costume design in that episode
frnknstn: This was the first big game to use bone-based model animation
ayirbudd: the simic slaw stinger was icing on the cake
I_Am_Clockwork: it also probably isn't fitted to your frame type
BrindleBoar: the crab hat was perf tho
Sethro420: Dirty dangles bois
devil_dan: More meat.
wicker_knight: probably still better than what Christine Sprankle has talked about wearing the Elspeth plate
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: can I get a FN link? Can never remmeber if it's on the LRR channel or the WotC one.
NathanJay_GA: next to the coffee machine
GenericHerooo: Hi, everyone! =)
SomebodyNowhere: there was a machine in the room with the coffee machine
TXC2: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou it's on the WOTC channel
HesGotNoPants: @ayirbudd it was salad but was it confirmed simic slaw
Bengineering: Man speaking of old Fps's did anyone ever play Blood II : The chosen?
ALEISmALPTO: !
wildpeaks: one must wonder how often the coffee machine has severe issues that they had to add a health station next to it
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun i would suggest the pistol for the small ones
ayirbudd: it was lots of things
Psychic_Ketchup: Friday Nights for those looking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JajWO0_6IH8
KharadBanar: Ah, the "turn off horror soundtrack" lever
Asimech: @Bengineering Yes. Oh yes.
MrRumdum: i didnt even know there was a blood 2
Bengineering: I used to play that as a LAN game with my brother while we waited for our dad to get off work
Gizmoloid: By the way here's how Gordon looked like without the HEV suit (model from Blue Shift) http://combineoverwiki.net/images/b/bd/Gordon_blue_shift_model_hd.jpg
TXC2: Blood 2 is a PROFOUNDLY 90's Name :P
castlewise: and beard reasons?
Asimech: @Bengineering And I've got the "aah, not in the face!" trauma to prove it! (*Three* types of "facehuggers", seriously Monolith?)
frnknstn: Blood was such fun at a LAN
hanrat: would have been more... smurfy?
APrioriOfNothing: But then you could have auditioned for the Blue Man Group right after!
accountmadeforants: Tricksy, luring you with tasty ammo pickups
wildpeaks: so this is where they store skeletons, got it
wicker_knight: I don't think they've ever been depicted even with hair
TXC2: I gonna say no
HesGotNoPants: f to remember the slaw
tenthtechpriest: do vedalken even have hair?
HesGotNoPants: f
frnknstn: Man, I should have suggested Shogo: Mobile Armor Division
KharadBanar: pretty sure vedalken are hairless
APrioriOfNothing: They have wisps.
adi_pie: I imagine they're like dolphins, and are just covered by very fine hairs.
HesGotNoPants: no the wiki says vedalken are hairless
Sethro420: My moms is orange
BillTheCat: you should have been topless and covered in blood for Rakdos :D
TXC2: not enough spikes and chains on the Rakdos one Kappa
pollux14: i mean, if we had a simic vedalken he could have hair
BillTheCat: wotc probably wouldn't have liked that
benegesseritmother: gruul shouldve had less clothing
KharadBanar: It pretty much immediately read as Rakdos to me, so it's fine
Robot_Bones: yeah the rakdos probably show more skin than the wizards channel is prepared for
accountmadeforants: Not all Vedalken are hairless, I'll see if I can find one with a beard. https://scryfall.com/card/kld/58/nimble-innovator
SomebodyNowhere: wow he just jumped through that window like nothing
Talus26: The best costume was the Gruul one to me lol
I_Am_Clockwork: lrrEFF your FILES!
GeeItSomeLaldy: Vandal!
Spirrie: Why did you choose to do all Paul, rather than giving different team members guild outfits? Was it to make it seem more like Paul’s personal dilemma?
BillTheCat: katesRip filing cabinets
Gizmoloid: Maybe he has a crippling fear of shotguns?
Nigouki: iirc by this point you could have had a heard of 8 people following you, but now you have to leave them behind as you go up the elevator shaft
SomebodyNowhere: why james
offbeatwitch: donk donk donk donk
hanrat: this is the real game
serialstreams: I have been playing Half Life since 1999 and I never knew you could destroy those filing cabinets
offbeatwitch: CLANG CLANG CLANG
APrioriOfNothing: So is this now a reversed Ikea simulator?
TXC2: WotC mothership and a story with Rakdos BDSM Lesbians in it, so who knows what they're OK with :P
GeeItSomeLaldy: you'd have been quicker using a grenade
Jarannis: @serialstreams Same, I was just typing that
KharadBanar: Someone probably had a really fun day programming that
TheSeg: Ah, asshole physics. :)
Ckiva: groundbreaking gameplay, uh I mean cabinet-breaking gameplay
BillTheCat: in the Black Mesa remake of this game I got like 8 followers
I_Am_Clockwork: oh this jump
SomebodyNowhere: I'm sure he'll be fine
I_Am_Clockwork: you might want to save
APrioriOfNothing: He looks in trouble. Maybe
Nigouki: they make a great scene out of it in Black Mesa where the people following you all look kinda resigned as you leave them
TheExactSame: that dude was supposed to fall already?
RAICx: Put a bullet up that man's butt
lemmel: Hes just hangin out up there
Asimech: Ah, time for the ol' save and jump.
GeeItSomeLaldy: F5
TheWooglie: There is a quick save button
TXC2: have we not been saying?
serialstreams: Run and jump

Nigouki: yes, hide behind explosive crate :D
I_Am_Clockwork: you can knock those turrets over
SomebodyNowhere: hide next to the explosives box
Plaicoson: man i love half life
I_Am_Clockwork: like the turrets in Portal

TheWarbo: NathanJay_GA 300 science per minute!?
Plaicoson: with a grenade launcher for BIG probrlems
accountmadeforants: So, no beards, but all Vedalken depicted with hair seem to have black hair and like a feather cut? https://scryfall.com/card/kld/53/janjeet-sentry https://scryfall.com/card/kld/42/curio-vendor
I_Am_Clockwork: order up!
NathanJay_GA: @thewarbo an unprecedemted amount of science!
Baldrash: Mirrodin.
wicker_knight: different number of fingers
goldheartache56: kaldesh
Plaicoson: kaladeshian vedalken have 6 fingers
I_Am_Clockwork: Kaladeshi vedalkens have 6 fingers
Baldrash: Or Kaladesh too. Man, lot of Vedalken.
accountmadeforants: Yeah, Vedalken are fairly different on all planes. Kaladesh have six fingers, Mirrodin has 4 arms
SomebodyNowhere: well
TheExactSame: we all have forearms
Psychic_Ketchup: A blue humanoid?
accountmadeforants: You're a vedalken if you blue yourself
moxbagel: I call 'em blue bois
Plaicoson: they all are blue dabudi dabuda
wordswords1: by that same logic why are humans on all planes
wicker_knight: Mirrodin Vedalken were the first to get Phyrexianed. were previously one of the other two
SomebodyNowhere: can you knock over these turrets
wicker_knight: don't know if we've been told which
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I figure it's like how elves are different on different planes but still elves
HesGotNoPants: blue skin big brain. 4 arms are due to gin gitatis
Nigouki: you can kill the turrets
I_Am_Clockwork: yes you can knock over the turrets
wicker_knight: Gin Gitaxias
I_Am_Clockwork: just like in porta
Nigouki: you clikc on them with your gun
wicker_knight: you science them
I_Am_Clockwork: it's almost like Valve likes recycling mechanics in thier games Kappa
quietbutlouder: yep they're easier than the portal ones even
quietbutlouder: iirc
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Jin-Gitaxias
goldheartache56: lorwyn tye plane without humans
wicker_knight: lrrGOAT there
accountmadeforants: I mean, Boros angels used to have four wings, and now they have two. And the ones of Zendikar have anywhere between two and eight or so. Number of limbs/bits don't really make a big difference I guess?
quietbutlouder: it like, looked around lol
Nigouki: when you get the revolver you can one-shot them :D
HesGotNoPants: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou auto correct cant fix magic names
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it's also almost like Aperture Science made weirder, crappier versions of Black Mesa products
tvenn: A+ friday nights guys
quietbutlouder: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou isnt cannon the other way around?
I_Am_Clockwork: I want a plane where the Angels are flying wheels of fire that have 8 wings that are covered in eyes and stuff
BillTheCat: 13 hp no problem
frnknstn: this is on easy?
wicker_knight: yes
wicker_knight: also sphinges
moxbagel: Paul are you saying it's because Planeswalkers gotta do it everywhere they go?
SomebodyNowhere: gman
wordswords1: then the real question is, which one were the first veldalkens
wicker_knight: whereas angels and demons are natural phenomena of their respective colors of magic
frnknstn: but why do there have to be SPIDERS on every plane?
hanrat: for the good of the species?
TXC2: isn't Dominaria meant to be at the centre of the muitverse
wicker_knight: and dragons are descended from a being native to the blind eternities
accountmadeforants: Eh, for Dragons and Cats there's at least an Ur-entity that spread them everywhere. Maybe there's also an Ur-Human and an Ur-Vedalken?
KharadBanar: Don't know if at the center, but certainly large and well-connected
wicker_knight: hydras are not explained afaik
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun only because of teferi and a small number of cards
SomebodyNowhere: was that a health machine in there
Gnyrinn: All vedalken can planeswalk, but only once and will lose/gain limbs in the process.
SomebodyNowhere: apply science liberally
TXC2: also how do Planeswalkers know how to talk to people from other planes?
Plaicoson: Gordon freeman dropping indiscriminate amounts of science on these military bois
adi_pie: I think Ravnica is at the center of the Universe. It was put there by the most powerful force known to Planeswalkers, popularity.
quietbutlouder: I have no idea what ur talking about rn and it sounds wild lol
Neljandik: Don't worry, the goverment is here to make sure that the aliems won't kill you
hanrat: "Eat Plumbum"
TXC2: quietbutlouder magic the Gathering
KharadBanar: @quietbutlouder The story behind Magic: The Gathering
TheExactSame: how many minutes of music would you say is in the entirety of HL1?
accountmadeforants: TXC2 the old ones had like, auto-translate (and would sometimes speak in multiple different languages in the same sentence when speaking with another planeswalker). Currently the explanation is stop asking questions.
TXC2: I see
moxbagel: I like the "Horny Vedalken Progeny" theory better I think.
I_Am_Clockwork: I think this is a "Kill 'em all and let God sort em out" situation
quietbutlouder: @TXC2 ah thank, i was just kinda jokingly imagining you all had some real interesting beliefs about the world
NathanJay_GA: That sounds like an instruction youd give to some machine leraning software
frnknstn: @TheExactSame Only a few minutes, because they had to be stored as CD Audio tracks on the install media

ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun the sagas are references to the history of magic and dominaria
wordswords1: @LoadingReadyRun do you remember what the Triumph of Gerrard was suppose to represent?
Nigouki: iirc here the music is unique to each chapter and triggered by location, not just combat triggered
TXC2: him killing Urza? or him sacrificing himself
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun the mending of dominaria is the time when bolas sacrifised the planeswalkers' immortality and immense power to stop the rifts in dominaria.
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun the eldest reborn is the time bolas returned and almost destroyed everything.
I_Am_Clockwork: just pumping bullets into that explosive barrel :D
TXC2: cards/ interesting
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun bolas was the one that fixed it but it cost the planeswalkers' immortality and eternal power and knowledge
wicker_knight: well, he was a douche before
Our_oBoros: I believe Bolas took one look at the time rifts and said "None a my business".
wicker_knight: he was just briefly a douche with limitations
TXC2: he's always been a douche
accountmadeforants: Can't a Dragon have his godhood and actual proper immortality (rather than functional immortality)?
I_Am_Clockwork: we were discussing Friday Nights
Lightningbro: "I agree with your reasons for doing this, but not with the means you're using to achieve it"
moxbagel: All I want to talk about is Simic Paul and what WHOLE DEAL is
I_Am_Clockwork: which led to a discussion on vidulkans
TheWarbo: James is like "Lore? In *my MtG?" :-D
wicker_knight: because of Friday Nights, we tlaked about a Vedalken costume for paul, which became a discussion about cross-plane variation for vedalken, which became magic history

HesGotNoPants: ya Friday nights and the murder of simic slaw
chesul: accountmadeforants he wasn't fully immortal before the mending, he was technically killed pre-mending by umizawa.
moxbagel: I love that he's just holding a Conch as a stand-in for all the bio-engineering
wordswords1: speaking of magic have you heard that the next half life game is VR and a prequel to HL2?
TheExactSame: @TXC2 thanks
Nigouki: nope, you're going backwards
NathanJay_GA: yes that way
TheExactSame: it is
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun not knowing what's to come i would say that we will see bolas again, sooner than expected.
accountmadeforants: chesul I mainly meant the aging thing. (Like, Elder Dragons can theoretically die of old age, which Bolas really doesn't like.)
Nigouki: you went backwards, wrong elevator
RAICx: You're going backwards James
khalmoro: back back back
frnknstn: I thought the mending was triggered by Jeska, Venser and Radha
TXC2: TheExactSame ah Sorry, I thought you meant kill 7 billion demons, which a webcomic Alex likes :P
BillTheCat: this game needs a big racing-style WRONG WAY indicator :D
hey_strawberry: yall never played half life?
TXC2: *which is a
Lightningbro: Maps? What are maps? This is before games had integrated maps.
TXC2: hey_strawberry James played it once 20 years ago
chesul: accountmadeforants true, but I'm pretty sure Bolas has already solved that.
Nigouki: yes, through the lazers
EvilBadman: @Lightningbro Doom had maps.
TheExactSame: @TXC2 ahh. I was about to go look up alex playing 7 billion humns
wicker_knight: Bolas invades Ravnica, yeah
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun well the next set is called ''War of the Spark''
chesul: the conclusion of THIS bolas arc.
caulderjof: Maybe Bolas will just win the magic universe forever, and so magic will be over.
HesGotNoPants: Chad will die
EvilBadman: It's autumn on Ravnica, and they've gone out of there was /not/ to say Fall.
EvilBadman: their*
TXC2: I REALLY hope we dont immeditaly go into another arc
RAICx: Yes
Nigouki: yes
Enmity777: yes
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun only ajani and ugin weren't the ones that managed to
BillTheCat: lrrGOAT
moxbagel: yeah paul read the 24x24 pixel bitmap
Lightningbro: @EvilBadman Really now? Interesting.
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun ''defeat'' bolas?
Nigouki: prepare for more action music
TXC2: Like I want to take a year from long stories in magic
TheWarbo: Paul...I think "something has gone wrong" is already objectively true
Emergent_OS: I bet that soldiers' instructions were to "(S)end Scientists", but "s" was lost, so they read it as "end scientists".
TheExactSame: no poppong on those
BillTheCat: run away from the big VTOL
accountmadeforants: They replaced the texture pop-in with deadly helicopter pop-in

Nigouki: casual playthrough is ~7 hours
ALEISmALPTO: oh 20. sorry
TXC2: that blood texture
tvenn: do you remember the last set you played in a sealed league
GeeItSomeLaldy: World Record is 28:06
accountmadeforants: Without scripts is 28 minutes
TheAwkes: #RollTheDiceOnFreezerSalad
MrRumdum: i meant 20 minutes segmented sry
moxbagel: what do people use scripts for? Like fast run/jump?
NovaTiempo: I've just spent the last 30s looking for a beeping phone at my desk. Nope, game noise beeps :p
Amentur: The latest worldrecord is only 13 days old :O
GeeItSomeLaldy: O h yeah, ppl still run this
TXC2: Scipts in speedruns are for SUPER complicated sequences of button presses
accountmadeforants: Huh, guess that guy was the one who got to announce Half-Life 3, and nobody was looking...
NovaTiempo: Are we about to get an unschedualed Speedrunoneword?
moxbagel: BONG
GeeItSomeLaldy: SMB1 is down to individual frames. There's like a potential 21 frames a human can save in that game.
GeeItSomeLaldy: and they only know that because the Tool-assisted speedrun can save a tonne more because it can do stuff humans can't
NovaTiempo: Ammo fairy.
accountmadeforants: A grate place :)
Amentur: lrrJUDGE
GeeItSomeLaldy: Yeah, you can only complete levels every 21 frames or something
GeeItSomeLaldy: so as long as you're within those frame-rules each level you can get a world-record
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Remembe Gordon, this was all your fault."

NojhLivic: Are there peopel better trained that Gordon though? He's the guy they threw into experimental tech on a regular basis and survived.
GeeItSomeLaldy: It says in the manual for HL1 that he never picked up a gun before joining Black Mesa
moxbagel: The right man in the wrong place can make ALL the DIFFerence in the WORld
GeeItSomeLaldy: he made an air-powered cannon when he was a kid
wicker_knight: yeah, Gordon's the kid using the new equipment. all these other scientists probably haven't used it since they were in his shoes
GeeItSomeLaldy: I remember this stuff because I sat and read the manual on the bus home after I got it
NojhLivic: HL had a manuaL?
Emergent_OS: @moxbagel Those words are burned into my psyche.
wicker_knight: I remember trying to talk to my stats profs about data visualization and the response was basically "that's what grad students are for"
ayirbudd: that little guy was fleeing and james showed no mercy
frnknstn: The manual was the CD insert, right?
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun croych jump
TXC2: man remember when Games had Manuals?
GDwarf: You can tell it's radioactive 'cause it's green! Clearly this is a river of phosphorus mixed with radium.
GeeItSomeLaldy: No it was a big booklet, back when games had actual literature wwith them
accountmadeforants: Man, Gordon, how come you're so opposed to taking a bath?
ALEISmALPTO: @LoadingReadyRun good
wicker_knight: that's true of most things that are dangerous tbh
Emergent_OS: I miss artistic game manuals, like manual of Starcraft 1...
gsyhiap: "exciting" feliciaBoom
TemporallyAwry: Radiation : Unexciting until it's too exciting. I assume it wasn't an intentional pun?
ayirbudd: is dying very exciting?
KharadBanar: It excites the atoms in your body.
moxbagel: The champ for me was the Starsiege and Tribes manuals. So good, so full of worldbuilding.
ayirbudd: dont answer that
MrRumdum: Radiation isnt that scary, just use ur rad-aways
silver_harloe: radiation: you're bathing in it.

gsyhiap: surprise!
TXC2: HOLY MOLY
SomebodyNowhere: ooh the tentacle monster thing, I remember him
Asimech: Yeah, save your ammo.
TheWooglie: yeah this was the bit I remember
silver_harloe: back in the day, my friend Paul (no relation) would start just playing and figuring things out while I read the manual. then he'd teach me how to get around and do basic game play, and I'd teach him a bunch of shortcuts and tips which only made sense because of the grasp of basic game play he had
gsyhiap: katesRip
Asimech: It's attracted by sound.
TXC2: OK so it one shots us
j0xer: this thing is not killable by normal means
SomebodyNowhere: stahp
Asimech: It's attracting its attention.
TheWooglie: It is doing something. just not the thing
accountmadeforants: His curved pointy thing is more powerful than your curved pointy thing. Whatever's down there must be an amazing scientist
EC_as_That: They attack based on sound and can't hear you if you are crawling/ducking
AlliterateA: the guards you're ignoring are telling you it hears by sound
EC_as_That: @LoadingReadyRun
iSmartMan1: In case you forgot,the giant monster is attracted by sound, and grenades can be used to draw its attention
EC_as_That: FortOne FortOne FortOne
GeeItSomeLaldy: It's nice to be in a stream that doesn't ban you for giving hints
KharadBanar: The level design in this place is A+
castlewise: just finished friday nights. That last "victory" shot was killer
head_cannon: I like how that collapsing bridge draws the player's attention to the oxygen & fuel lines.
ayirbudd: !upnext
silver_harloe: thank you for waiting while I slowly reloaded my shotgun
GeeItSomeLaldy: Strong-arm Freeman
ayirbudd: oops i did it wrong
v_nome: so what category are we in now?
Asimech: James, seriously? Has Minecraft taught you nothing?
wicker_knight: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG (Graham and James play with Magic Cards. Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Thu 02:00 PM PST (2:03 from now).
frnknstn: !next
Emergent_OS: I don't recall, did me make to the first G Man sighting place?
TXC2: yeap, super wouldn't break you shoulders doing that :P
ayirbudd: thanks lol
wicker_knight: @Emergent_OS we made it to at least one
KharadBanar: Hi Graham!
TheWarbo: wow those are two very distinct drinks
NovaTiempo: Training day in your favour! Advance to go
drcanonball: mango passion sounds kinda nice
azureHaights: Your biggest!
Emergent_OS: @wicker_knight Thanks, I always forget where those are located.
TheWarbo: hey look, it's LRR's biggest fan
GeeItSomeLaldy: If it was really a big fan it'd subscribe
NathanJay_GA: One of the fan blades is backwards. Now you cant unsee it
r10pez10: half-life? whew
drcanonball: just climb
Pandalore: gotta go fast
GeeItSomeLaldy: o/
wicker_knight: lrrFINE
Psychic_Ketchup: This is fine
azureHaights: cronch
TXC2: !addquote (Paul and James) [now] 'Why did you that?' 'I don't know, there was a button so I pressed it.'
LRRbot: New quote #5783: "'Why did you that?' 'I don't know, there was a button so I pressed it.'" —Paul and James [2019-01-31]
wicker_knight: it's a patreon supporter
Asimech: On another hand, if it's meant to be pushed why isn't it always in the pushed position?
MadCmdrMoe: Lock out, Tag out
Angnor33: LOTO!
KerbalDyne: lock out tag out baby
BillTheCat: nice going James
LordZarano: why would they put the button to turn on the fan underneath the fan?
Tser1ng: Fireable offense if you don't do it.
Aarek: why is the on switch for the fan UNDER the fan
rocketjohn: have you considered quicksaving, James?
Emergent_OS: I want Gordon Freeman to give the same answer as JC Denton. "Why did you destroy this machine?", "I was never properly trained in its operation".
r10pez10: Half-Life Fact: Dr. Kleiner's named his de-beaked pet headcrab "Hedy Lamarr"
Robot_Bones: damn, I just tried to clean the targeting reticle off my screen LUL
silver_harloe: you can rebind it to the modern quicksave key of f5
KharadBanar: Isn't the procedure designed to make people safer even if they don't know why they're following it?
TheWooglie: I think I changed it to F5 after hitting quick load by mistake one time]
NojhLivic: Robot_Bones I've done that too...
rocketjohn: james james james.
TXC2: James pls
Asimech: Continually?
devil_dan: Up, not down.
Feminine_Desires: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:00:58.
Robot_Bones: well generally it goes in circles
r10pez10: black mesa is not known for its safety procedures
head_cannon: I guess that must be an emergency on/off button for if someone got trapped down there.
devil_dan: Throw things until you hit the button.
silver_harloe: physics!
azureHaights: This is how, this is how, this is how this works.
GeeItSomeLaldy: Gratuitous Physics!
TXC2: so why did the debris fall then? Kappa
Lightningbro: Giant fans, they push up giant small things right?
Asimech: Fans push you up, before letting you down.
accountmadeforants: Only a villain would unleash a giant fan on anyone
r10pez10: so it totally looks like this game still holds up, huh
TwitchTVsFrank: good thing you brought your wing suit to work
GeeItSomeLaldy: Video games are Fan Boys
wordswords1: They use quantum scientist that are both below and not below the fan at the same time
PixelArtDragon: Ah, Half-Life. Vent crawling simulator.
devil_dan: I mean there are those things, where yo fly on an air stream in a bug tube.
accountmadeforants: Larger fans do tend to move more slowly, since the alternative would be obscenely loud
devil_dan: *big tube
silver_harloe: willy wonka's chocolate factory
TXC2: accountmadeforants and also massively expensive to operate
NathanJay_GA: Fans can also be used to drive a certain type of subwoofer
Asimech: @devil_dan Nope, too late. I'm imagining a tube meant for launching bugs.
silver_harloe: every fan was installed by those engineers once they did the thing
Asimech: Quick save?
BillTheCat: hahaa
GeeItSomeLaldy: I know a wind tunnel with enormous FAST moving fans
TheWooglie: American football games?
Emergent_OS: This playthrough for some reason makes me remember an old LRR Sketch "LHC HD".
frnknstn: do wind turbines count as big fans?
a00682005: half life!!!
Asimech: Grenades to distract it.
EvilBadman: @frnknstn Only if they subscribe
NojhLivic: No sense of rhythm
frnknstn: they turn surprisingly slow
Asimech: Too fast.
NathanJay_GA: Yeah, this drummer sucks
Asimech: Also it's better to have them move to another level.
Mushbie: grenade down the hole
Asimech: Grenade the boxes?
TXC2: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: stuff
accountmadeforants: A coffee factory nearby has multiple giant slow moving fans
TheWooglie: Denied
j0xer: crouchwalking doesn't make noise
TXC2: James is making some odd noises :P
Laserbeaks_Fury: I think the alt fire for grenades just rolls them on the ground
quietbutlouder: ya done got stabby jabbied
GenericHerooo: Only destroy the boxes to the sides. (?)
bladethis: https://www.bigassfans.com/ big ass fan is a brand of giant warehouse fans
silver_harloe: giant things moving fast is the weird thing. movies get that wrong all the time. especially anything with mechs. inertia doesn't work that way :)
BillTheCat: don't you go down and destroy them first?
BillTheCat: before going back up?
devil_dan: Seems that the thing I'm thinking of is a free fall simulator.
r10pez10: it's too big
Kerrisis: It's almost impossible to run through this area @LoadingReadyRun . ALso James needs to get the Oxy pump going, that's the next level down.
head_cannon: @BillTheCat Yeah, but James jumped down instead when he was here the first time. Oops.
GeeItSomeLaldy: there's a second path on the bottom
Mushbie: yes
Kerrisis: Sorry, power, not oxy.
GeeItSomeLaldy: down down ,deeper and down
KharadBanar: @bladethis that seems like an interesting brand strategy
NathanJay_GA: to the bottom level, yeah
Feminine_Desires: wat
Feminine_Desires: twitch please
r10pez10: you can prolly follow the power line
r10pez10: man i hated this part so much
TheWooglie: r10pez10 so satisfying when you did it though IIRC
silver_harloe: is this the original original? I could've sworn oxy, power, and fuel were three paths instead of 2
r10pez10: yes it was great to kill the damn thing
Feminine_Desires: can anyone else watch that clip from that link?
TXC2: what link?
TemporallyAwry: QuickSave
a00682005: i remember when somebody taught me the jump and duck. it completely changed the game.
PixelArtDragon: Wait, since when is health out of over 100?
PixelArtDragon: Am I just remembering it wrong?
Feminine_Desires: hmm, let me repost and see if twitch can see it again. It gave me a "something went wrong" error. https://clips.twitch.tv/OnerousGlamorousCheetahOneHand

NathanJay_GA: you did it! you can move on
Hotrob_McAwesometon: as someone who's on my company's health and safety committee, and got a "I'm not reprimanding you for bringing up too many health and safety issues, but..." I can confirm this would give me a heart attack if i had to inspect it
sweg_leaps: Greetings
TXC2: hello sweg_leaps welcome
silver_harloe: yeah. no one inspects this shizz
TheWooglie: lrrSACK lrrSACK
Papperslappen: saved
accountmadeforants: Thankfully Gordon has these enormous, shock-absorbing arms
gsyhiap: The H&S statement for this facility is a piece of paper with "🤷 suuuure" on it.
TXC2: man we have some serious grip
PixelArtDragon: Ah, Half-Line ladders.
SomebodyNowhere: freeman falls a hundred feet but just grabs the ladder again like its nothing
Papperslappen: That monster is not wearing a regulation hard hat
Asimech: Hmm... "no-one inspect the New Mexico research facility" doesn't quite roll off the tongue as well as the original.
TXC2: inertia does not applie to Freeman it seems
TheExactSame: it's blocking a fire exit
Hotrob_McAwesometon: to be fair, given my interactions with how little the ministry of labour cares, the monster may have already been reported and Black Mesa just told them "Yeah, the beware of monster sign is just on the way from the print shop"
masta2505: Oh can you remember the time when HL1 was praised for great graphics ... I really wonder if people were blind back then.
gsyhiap: TXC2 - inertia is for slackers
ValtheDrake: also, this isn't strictly my department, but I haven't seen any papers and I think it might be an illegal alien...
SomebodyNowhere: are we still in the tentacle monster part?
Baldrash: One of the weakest aspects of HL1 was actually the graphics since it was running on ye olde Quake II engine.
TheWooglie: and you were running at 640x480 proably
j0xer: colored lighting was all the rage
head_cannon: This is what was state-of-the-art. At one point.
TXC2: Graphics aren't everything
The_FlyingDutchman: no RTX? tsk bad graphics
wordswords1: back in my day we had to walk uphill both ways for a nice texture and we liked it!
GeeItSomeLaldy: Because before this games didn't have coloured lighting
lifecharacter: Remember when COD Modern Warfare was hyper realistic?
Rounin7: this is great graphics
Zath_: To be fair, graphics have diminishing returns, games today won't look as bad in the future as old ones do now.
Gizmoloid: Don't crawl past the monster, speed is more important.
Pal_Friendpatine: Remember when people claimed an amazing PC build and the question was, “Can it play Crysis 3?”
j0xer: yeah having never had a PS1, i can't play any of the classic PS1 games, they are just too damn ugly without nostalgia factor
frnknstn: hold the grenade for longer to throw further
silver_harloe: you destroyed them in a previous life
KharadBanar: The original Deus Ex does that for me
r10pez10: you quicksaved below, remember
Hotrob_McAwesometon: you can get away with outdated graphics as long as you have good art direction IMO
Asimech: You can break the box and get back down the ladder.
The_FlyingDutchman: Crysis 3??? you young'ns I build my first PC to run Crysis 1
Mushbie: @Pal_Friendpatine Crysis 3? more like crysis 1
khalmoro: just compare this to silent hill 1
silver_harloe: you didn't bother to go up to the control room in this life
head_cannon: Saved with 5 life? Living dangerously, I see.
Hotrob_McAwesometon: I think Mechwarrior 2 still looks pretty good due to its atmosphere
r10pez10: did we nickname the awful tentacle spike monster yet
masta2505: Guys, i grew up on C64s and Amiga 500s ;) I know how far we've come. ;)

Asimech: Yes. This is the right place.
Feminine_Desires: respawning enemies x.x
SomebodyNowhere: all that work for this
TXC2: BURN BABY BURN!
lifecharacter: Those are noises.
j0xer: Colored lighting, maxing out my voodoo2
Hotrob_McAwesometon: RIP Spike the Tentacle Monster
Psychic_Ketchup: benginBurn benginBurn
KharadBanar: I like how the control panel for this comlex device is just a single button labeled "Test fire"
r10pez10: satisfying
PixelArtDragon: Honestly, graphics are the easiest thing to redo with modern technology.
malc: hahaha
gsyhiap: LUL
TheWooglie: 5 life
Hotrob_McAwesometon: Squid1 Squid2 katesRip Squid2 Squid4

Papperslappen: lrrWOW
gsyhiap: I nearly said that his health was low, but thought "nah, they'll be fine"
BillTheCat: haha
SomebodyNowhere: at 5 health I'm pretty sure you couldn't stub your toe without reloading
r10pez10: thing was huge
SomebodyNowhere: magnum
Asimech: 'Man, the Hive places in Destiny 1 don't look so great."
GeeItSomeLaldy: Science man can heal yo.... never mind
gsyhiap: Paul with these strange modern game-dev best practices
j0xer: well to be fair you aren't supposed to take any damage from that boss
Mushbie: I got "late" into the pc game, and my machine was and athlon Xp 1600+ with a nvidia mx 460
j0xer: since it 1 shots you
TheWooglie: to be fair the last life James lost was from his own grenade
thegreatwyrdling: save your game James!
silver_harloe: not at 5 health he doesn't
Asimech: Are you using jump to swimp up or "forward+facing up"?
malc: O_o
r10pez10: you're correct to go down that way
SomebodyNowhere: spinny
gsyhiap is dizzy now
Rounin7: through the hole and up
The_FlyingDutchman: my first real gaming rig would have been a Core2Duo machine running a 8800GTS
Mushbie: down,out and up
devil_dan: Not when he is probably cofing up blood.
AerialPosterior: The revolver always looked weird.
j0xer: dont worry you dont need much magnum ammo, best gun in the game
r10pez10: wahey
GeeItSomeLaldy: Delicious health, nom nom nom
gsyhiap: feliciaHeal
TXC2: I enjoy that this gun has TWO gas ports :P
Mushbie: @The_FlyingDutchman my first homebuild was a core2duo E6750 with a 8800gt
Clem_JVS: he didnt need that health any.. guess he wanted it
a00682005: what was it... f2 to save?
The_FlyingDutchman: @Mushbie that was the one, I had that cpu too
GeeItSomeLaldy: HL1 ladders, only slightly less infuriating than HL2 ladders
devil_dan: lrrFINE
Hotrob_McAwesometon: the arch-enemy of half-life... ladders
Mushbie: it was a really good cpu for the price
Nigouki: lol
The_FlyingDutchman: switch to a Q8800 after a while when 2 cores were just too little (6 years later)
SomebodyNowhere: ohno
1losttheGame: LUL
Nigouki: go to the autosave
circusofkirkus: welp, we live here now
Asimech: And this is one reason why you stagger save.
gsyhiap: djtIRVY
Clem_JVS: the games tores the last 2 quicksaves in the save menu
MrRumdum: you can go back to the autosave in the menu
Nigouki: they're staggered nicely
Clem_JVS: stores*
Gizmoloid: Check your autosaves.
TXC2: yeap this is fine
Asimech: You're not meant to ride them, so.
castlewise: I remember this game being ... better
theRomanoid: Go back from quicksave point maybe?
Asimech: Check if auto-saves are separate from quick-saves?
TXC2: Swim up like in Minecraft Kappa
SomebodyNowhere: lrrFINE
lucha_libro: this game WAS great for its time.
Mushbie: nope this is the return pice
Mushbie: Pipe
silver_harloe: the barrels are not the key. when you got the end, you could drop onto a pipe to the right of the others
gsyhiap: LUL
TheWooglie: Smooth
1losttheGame: LUL LUL
circusofkirkus: worth it
Rounin7: LUL
gsyhiap: feliciaSave !
theRomanoid: reload and get back here
Clem_JVS: as i was say the game stores the last 2 quicksaves
TXC2: lrrHORN lrrGOAT lrrHORN
head_cannon: What a journey we've been on.
TheAinMAP: Ha!
Papperslappen: lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrGOAT
thegreatwyrdling: Goddamnit James!
castlewise: lol
sivakrytos: clearly not dying of radiation any more
NathanJay_GA: what in the world
gainsofcastamere: unfortunate
wench_tacular: wooo, do it again!
TXC2: !clips
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips
SomebodyNowhere: quite a journey we've been on
castlewise: lrrGOAT lrrGOAT
IntegerDevourer: reload and swim back
TheWooglie: reload
Mushbie: reload
r10pez10: i did not know that path existed
frnknstn: !game the best
Nigouki: reload from autosave
j0xer: back at the beginning with -150 health
sivakrytos: that's how radiation works, yep
TheWooglie: there are other saves]
r10pez10: "load game" holds the older autosaves
Gizmoloid: Check your autosaves for a safer spot
SomebodyNowhere: there's suit charge still
Mushbie: it is
Asimech: How about a fully manual save?
SpyCactus: pipe crawl?
devil_dan: then fall back down...
Asimech: You know, in a non-quick save slot?
Mushbie: or maybe not
ggodopaste: there's a walk button
KharadBanar: I love how this system is just barrels swimming in a circle
ggodopaste: I think Shift?
Nigouki: running is fine
Hotrob_McAwesometon: this game wasn't designed for mechanical keyboards and laser mice. gotta break out a spongey membrane and Dell ball mouse
gainsofcastamere: Circulating barrels immersed in waste is key to Black Mesa's current research.
TXC2: I'm getting pissed off how we keep pulling on the hammer of the pistol :P
SpyCactus: Good thing these pipes are hexagonal and not round
Pal_Friendpatine: Spongy Membrane. Good band name
r10pez10: i want to ride on dtr freeman's wild radiation ride again

KharadBanar: @Hotrob_McAwesometon I think back then there were still some Model Ms from when keyboards weren't cheaply mass-produced yet
GeeItSomeLaldy: litearlly never saw anyone die there
Asimech: @TXC2 Why? The hammer on a revolver is just ornamental, right? Kappa
SomebodyNowhere: put away the magnum
Mushbie: ahh this
Clem_JVS: people die there quite often actually
EvilBadman: Speedrunning "this never happens"
SomebodyNowhere: ohhey that guy
r10pez10: froot froot train
SpyCactus: Yeah, not fighting the microwave crab seems good
The_FlyingDutchman: tbh, for an old game they set up the environment really well with minimal to no tiling
EvilBadman: Use then W I think
r10pez10: (check controls for train controls)
TXC2: I think watching Forgotten weapons has ruined my ability to look at video game guns :P
Rounin7: no electricity man
Asimech: Press W when the UI thing is up?
gainsofcastamere: He has one of the highest health pools for an individual enemy.
silver_harloe: special boss. you don't shoot it
Asimech: Oh right, yes. Things need electricity to run. And the green stuff isn't usable.
plummeting_sloth: remember you can break apart all those boxes for stuff
frnknstn: check crates for health
The_FlyingDutchman: considering dark souls 2 had some horrendous tiling for an atmospheric game
GeeItSomeLaldy: I mean you can shoot it, but you need a lot of explosions
Mushbie: reload and run past him
theRomanoid: You can't kill him with guns
Hotrob_McAwesometon: "quit camping u noob"
gainsofcastamere: yeah it's a huge amount of damage required to kill him, avoidance is not a bad plan.
TXC2: theRomanoid sounds like a challenge to me Kappa
silver_harloe: nothing will kill the big dude except the scripted kill button, which is somewhere past him
LordZarano: Dynamite with a laser beam, garenteed to blow your mind
r10pez10: it making the ammo noise
Clem_JVS: na this thing can be killed with alot of explosives.. just most people dont have enough at this point in time
GeeItSomeLaldy: If you have a rocket launcher and ammo cheats you can kill it
j0xer: gargantuas are definitely killable
PixelArtDragon: Those flammable barrels are not regulation red.
theRomanoid: Somewhat not being able to ADS now makes me uncomfortable
TXC2: is that sound it's farts? Kappa
r10pez10: so the lore here is those electric aliens were attracted to a possible source of electricity
r10pez10: big sign on the wall
natesnation: Vortigaunts are cool bros
Zath_: This boss seems to know the meta pretty well
SpyCactus: Head crabs at the health station? More like med crabs
Clem_JVS: my guess it was something they wernt expecting.. then just left it in because humor
Asimech: Wall meat!
r10pez10: show don't tell
gainsofcastamere: Being from another dimension Vortigaunts don't realize that barrels are always filled with explosive.

1losttheGame: modern games dont do that! this is amazing!
Hotrob_McAwesometon: wow, a lot of attention to detail
head_cannon: Half-Life 1 seems to want to be conditioning the player to be cautious and paranoid, since running right into a new room usually results in death.
Nigouki: nade the turrets
r10pez10: this game is like 80% misunderstandings
Clem_JVS: 100 HP wow!
theRomanoid: "Power generator -> " sign on the wall makes me happy
PixelArtDragon: "Are you still there?" Wait, wrong facility.
castlewise: I wonder if one of those guys is the guy from "Hunt down the Freeman"
Clem_JVS: you are
TXC2: this is ALL black mesa
r10pez10: yeah we are, black mesa is huge
Nigouki: this is all still Black Mesa, it's a huuuueg place
SpookySpaghooti: heyo Lrr friends!
plummeting_sloth: those were folks sent in to merc you all
SpyCactus: They're just trying to tie up loose ends
gainsofcastamere: the mg is trash at range, fighting the soldiers is easier if you use the pistol and go for headshots in this section
Clem_JVS: you will know when your not in black mesa
TXC2: hello SpookySpaghooti welcome
SpyCactus: You know, like you
gainsofcastamere: it's just much more accurate
GeeItSomeLaldy: No, this is your Tax Dollars at work
TXC2: Black Mesa is Impossibly huge
Clem_JVS: nadebaited
GDwarf: Black Mesa is an entire mesa that they hollowed out
r10pez10: yes uh, black mesa never decomissions everything
PixelArtDragon: Try using grenades?
gainsofcastamere: pistol is much better
silver_harloe: good thing he's not smart enough to shoot the splody boxes next to you
r10pez10: think of aperture science, the other megacorporation in this universe
gainsofcastamere: its counter-intuitive but it's often better, the mg is only decent close-up
SpyCactus: Ah yes, the cave Johnson monologue section
frnknstn: this is waste systems maybe?
wanuhava: <message deleted>wtf is that? https://imgsup.com/gallery/ScreenShot_029JPG01.jpg
plummeting_sloth: that would involve them making anything, which doesn't seem to be in the cards any more
silver_harloe: HL3 is so late now that it could do No Thing Except Disappoint
theRomanoid: but they can do "Portal 2 episode 1"
wordswords1: it'll probably be portal VR
castlewise: Someone posted the "script" to Half Life 3 online at one point
Clem_JVS: 2 hp >.<
Laurreth: they could make Left 100 Dead, The PUBG
castlewise: or something which could very reasonably be the scripot
Galomaniak: There will be Artifact 3 Kappa
offbeatwitch: singleplayer experiences aren't economically viable anymore
khalmoro: they only care about dota
silver_harloe: he's like "thanks for trying to slowly reload a shotty while I shoot you"
KharadBanar: Portal VR would probably be Motion Sickness: The Game
Hotrob_McAwesometon: literally 2hp
Clem_JVS: or which reasonably at this point cant be the script cause its out there
theRomanoid: HL3: battle royale xD
head_cannon: "Reloading at point blank range" was a bold strategy.
MrRumdum: break some boxes
gainsofcastamere: smash those crates, could well have health in them
NathanJay_GA: there might be health stuff in the crates
j0xer: is james anti-box killing?
1losttheGame: that is a flat out lie
GDwarf: Single player stuff still does really well
devil_dan: Is this the Source port?
Galomaniak: Check boxes
GDwarf: Like, Breath of the Wild
gainsofcastamere: the boxes always have stuff in them, smash em up good!
GDwarf: But multiplayer games make *more*
GeeItSomeLaldy: OR Witcher
TXC2: Single player is only uneconomical if you're a fucking greedy asshole
Clem_JVS: origional or seam origional?
plummeting_sloth: valve can make way more money providing a market for other peoples games than making their own. Less personnel too
Clem_JVS: steam*
Lightningbro: Yeah, single player games totally don't make money. I say playing Kingdom Hearts 3.
r10pez10: poor audiodog
Pal_Friendpatine: It’s about the amount of content that can by bought after the games release. Multiplayer usually has more post release content
badpandabear: Might be true for FPS, but RPGs and Platformers still do well
j0xer: players as content is a huge money saver
Pal_Friendpatine: Be*
offbeatwitch: TXC2: in terms of what shareholders want, singleplayer single-purchase experiences aren't moneymaking enough
SpyCactus: Single player games take work and money, while anyone can make a microtransaction filled PUBG clone
offbeatwitch: indies keep the scene alive though
castlewise: I guess if success is the same as sales. But there have been some amazing single player games recently
Katten_Rastyr: Single player games aren't viable because barely anyone knows how to make good ones anymore cirPls
theRomanoid: singleplayer games can not really bring continuous flow of profit (expansions and DLCs do not work that well)
silver_harloe: breath of the wild made no money because it had no MP
castlewise: AAA and otherwise.
TXC2: offbeatwitch oh indeed, hense my statement
offbeatwitch: I basically exclusively play indies
Asimech: @TXC2 And if you think you need to spend mountains on marketing and "photorealistic" graphics.
Katten_Rastyr: That Being said Doom 2016 is bomb AF cirGasm'
r10pez10: quicksavo
AerialPosterior: MP games are a gamble. High chance of being DOA.
Katten_Rastyr: cirGasm *
PixelArtDragon: The sound effects in this game are underratedly very good.
EvilBadman: @offbeatwitch there is a marked difference between "economically viable" and "pleasing to shareholders."
NathanJay_GA: Single player games make money. But these companies see multiplayer gamee make more money, so they dont bother with single. They want ALL the money, are not satidfied with just a lot of money
castlewise: Yeah, some companies aren't happy unless they are making *all* the money.
Clem_JVS: question is.. whos stores boxes like that anyway ???
castlewise: While others are happy to just make money
offbeatwitch: @EvilBadman yes, that was poor wording on my part
Katten_Rastyr: I want more Co-op games
head_cannon: I remember when Bethesda tried marketing the Doom 2016 multiplayer and didn't mention the single-player campaign at all. It must have made sense to the executives as just the common practice.
Pal_Friendpatine: You know my biggest complaint at the moment is with ALL of the amazing processing capabilities we now have, games are being made to look better and better and NOT have load screens be reduced.
KharadBanar: I think it has to do with big publishers wanting to feed people their "live services", and those need an awful lot of content. It's certainly easier when a large portion of that content is what other players are doing
Clem_JVS: i want more co-op games that dont have a max teamsize of 4
GeeItSomeLaldy: Look at these guys, expecting fans of any size to blow you
Pal_Friendpatine: I get it games can look good, and that sells, but can I get a game that has no load screens some day?
gainsofcastamere: gibbed! nicely done
Hotrob_McAwesometon: chunk'd em
r10pez10: n++ has no load screens
SpookySpaghooti: @Pal_Friendpatine Who cares about optimization when you can have journos screech about how pretty your game looks
TXC2: Pal_Friendpatine try dark souls
devil_dan: Your leg bones must be dust by now.
wordswords1: @LoadingReadyRun I think the problem is they're looking for the same percent return on investment but their investments have ballooned out of control
gainsofcastamere: poor little guys's stuck
Clem_JVS: high impace reactive armor
Pal_Friendpatine: And that is why they make them look good first and foremost... it sells
silver_harloe: yeah. the penalty for better graphics is higher cost to produce = higher profit needed to "succeed"
SpyCactus: I'd be okay with reducing the cost of games by lowering graphical quality if it meant they could hire competent writers
Asimech: Or if they'd listen to the writers.
r10pez10: yea
Pal_Friendpatine: I like that idea @spycactus
r10pez10: figure out a way to kill the big monster
GeeItSomeLaldy: remember back in the day when games let you back-track
TXC2: or you know, give the dev sensible working hours and conditions :P
TXC2: *dev's
Pal_Friendpatine: And that one too @asimech
Clem_JVS: and a resonable project deadline
SpookySpaghooti: what the fuck was that thing
Asimech: @TXC2 Yeah, admittedly that would be first in my list of improvements.
Laurreth: TXC2, but that would require sensible hiring practices and competent management
silver_harloe: eventually the tools will catch up so today's graphics will be cheaper to make
GeeItSomeLaldy: There's a terrible YES Album you need to go turn on
GeeItSomeLaldy: (Big Generator)
devil_dan: Maybe design explosives containers that don't blow up when a butterfly farts on them.
r10pez10: track power's still off
Nigouki: go down, run around the big guy to the tunnel on the left
SpookySpaghooti: competent management seems to be the thing the games industry needs most imo
Laurreth: silver_harloe, it's less about tools and a lot about people who can use them
SpookySpaghooti: just look at the dumpster fire that Bethesda has become
r10pez10: you've completed everything downstairs
Nigouki: emphasis on RUN, he will chase you
RassilonDND: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG (Graham and James play with Magic Cards. Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Thu 02:00 PM PST (1:13 from now).
devil_dan: I am reminded of the broken legs sounds in Prey.
Nigouki: that's not left James Kappa
TXC2: there seems to be a lot of going round in circles in this game :P
r10pez10: giant tunnel to the left o' him
gainsofcastamere: next time, opposing force? then blue shift?
IntegerDevourer: You need to steal some fizzy lifting drink
gainsofcastamere: :)
Zath_: Shooters from the future?
head_cannon: You're pretty close to beating the big blue guy.
SpookySpaghooti: @LoadingReadyRun hey Paul you were great in the latest Friday Nights!
malc: lol
1losttheGame: oh yeah, the Friday Nights episode was hilarious
TXC2: we've done games from 2018 right?
Laurreth: silver_harloe, like if you wanted to create an intricate industrial setting you're ideally looking for someone who has experience actually designing industrial stuff, and I don't think any development studio could budget for Phoenixmelior ^^

SpookySpaghooti: oh man thats a good username
TXC2: is that meant to be a safety feature on the lift? :P
gainsofcastamere: Thanks, I stole it from a joke Graham made at PAX Aus.
PixelArtDragon: It has a safety system. If it detects that it's /currently/ maiming someone, it stops.
KharadBanar: I don't regularly follow Games of Chance, has First Person Puzzle Games been a category yet?
SpyCactus: I feel like you are short one button somewhere
Asimech: @TXC2 Sure. "When the lift gibs a user, go back down for another round."

SpyCactus: You need to get the track power back on
head_cannon: Perhaps you should quicksave before running the gauntlet past the big blue monster.
r10pez10: time to RUN
SpyCactus: But I don't know what you missed to get that
Nigouki: giant tunnel left of the big guy
silver_harloe: track power is on
r10pez10: you're going the correct way
r10pez10: up to the control room again

Nigouki: now jump across
GeeItSomeLaldy: now save
Nigouki: now on left
Nigouki: missed it
Nigouki: that's straight, not left
r10pez10: not the one with the track in it
GeeItSomeLaldy: left
r10pez10: the BIG tunnel
Gizmoloid: NO the tunnel right on the left
Nigouki: no
Nigouki: immediate left
r10pez10: left of that one
r10pez10: where the gate is
Nigouki: that gate should be open
GeeItSomeLaldy: the gate should be open
gainsofcastamere: That announcement voice gave me chills, the memories.
head_cannon: That gate should be open. Our bad.
Nigouki: the point of going downstairs was to open the gate
BillTheCat: did you have to hit the lever in the control room?
r10pez10: oh i don't ...
SpyCactus: I think a button to turn on track power is missing somewhere
r10pez10: you unstuck the generator but didn't turn the power on, james
PixelArtDragon: The enemy's gate SHOULD be down.
offbeatwitch: thanks chat
r10pez10: whoops :/
TheWarbo: chat will never steer you wrong james
r10pez10: yeah you need to go back downstairs
Gizmoloid: Not that lever, that's for tram.
Gizmoloid: I think.
Nigouki: it's ok, the next chapter is the 2nd worst after Xen anyway :P
frnknstn: maybe we missed something downstairs
GeeItSomeLaldy: it's a verified bug. If you want you could use the speedrun strats to skip the whole leve
r10pez10: it had two parts lol oh well
gsyhiap: katesThank
r10pez10: thanks for the stream!
TXC2: thanks for streaming James and Paul
SpyCactus: Games HAVE gotten better at letting you know what to do
