GapFiller: also while waiting whats the 18 James of Chance game submission deadline?
GapFiller: never done it before see
mtvcdm: Deadline is Whenever They Roll For It.
PhoenixMelior: sometimes Wednesday, probably, no one knows for sure
Laurence72: @PhoenixMelior As I lack cooking skills beyond using a microwave halfway competently, it may take a while, or someone else who has cooking know how, for them to get to market
mtvcdm: Bullet Hell the current category.
GapFiller: yeh thats why asking abt deadline
PhoenixMelior: ah, devious. I'll look out for pre-orders
GapFiller: cz this is the first time wanted to submit a game
wildpeaks: as long as the microwave doesn't catch fire, that's competently enough
PhoenixMelior: the problem, Gapfiller, is that no one knows

offbeatwitch: hi welcome to SnowPoint
Rathclav: 80% of people are used to winter driving and know how to drive safe
Weagle: What baffles me is people who don't know how to handle the snow while living in a region that gets a few snowstorms a year at minimum

zerg539: gentle gas gentle brake don't try to turn and speed up or slow down are the big three rules for ice driving

Alness49: Cryptocurrency fans learning why oversight is needed in finance
Phosphatide: so are we using that clip of beej “leaving” as the youtube stinger FrankerZ
GapFiller: yeh it was a big deal
Nightvalien28: I love when bitcoin idiots get screwed
offbeatwitch: they were like "the currency is inaccessible because our founder died with the private keys" and then money started moving out of the accounts
ContingentCat: death: it happens
MidgardSerpent: I had heard about that, but hadn't heard that he was alive. Is that confirmed? Or just speculation?
1losttheGame: no, no, the orphanage ate him Kappa
GlennSeto: Ostensibly Crohn's disease.

Pteraspidomorphi: A little bit
Bistromaths: we can hear it
PharaohBender27: One of my coworkers has what they call "Hit by a bus" preparation for having people take clear notes on their work.
TheMoatman: I mean you could *definitely* fake your death with 179 million
Amentur: Just barely
1losttheGame: lets be honest, how many people here would fake their own death for that much money?
Bistromaths: The noise dampeners behind you aren't killing the fan noise. Pretty thought they are
Reecer6: I have a preferred answer to that conundrum.
GapFiller: its not really noticeable
ThorSokar: the fan is there, but it's not loud enough to be distracting
Bistromaths: **though
Rathclav: I only noticed it when you mentiond it XD
Lithobraker: then again, you're dead, do you really care if your financial company dies when you do?
monsieur_squirrel: cryptocurrency is where libertarians learn banking rules
GapFiller: Bitcoin AKA: idiots demonstrating why the past One Hundred Years of Financial Regulation exist
Reecer6: Oh right, regulations are good and have purposes.
thefileclerk: dont forget the horrifying co2 cost on top of that!
DiscordianTokkan: I mean, I can't hear the fan, but I'm not using headphones so my own computer's fan noise is probably masking it. :P
user_with_name17: fantastic
PhoenixMelior: not sure what nintendo expected, really
Lord_Hosk: My uncle died from a brain tumor on his Medulla he was out to dinner and just stopped... during the autopsy they were like, Oh yeah... thats why, his heart and lungs are kinda controlled by that part of the brain.
PhoenixMelior: but also yeah, no Fire Emblem thieves. I have no choice then?
steelfox13: Paul, you don't care? A man potentially died!
GapFiller: well Detective Pikachu is a thing...
SAiconjr: instead of pikachu, I'd give one to charuzard

keep_it_lobster: Amazon has recommendations for Valentine's gifts for pets.
Phosphatide: pokemon seem to be more sentient than real world animals

Izandai: That's just absurd.
TheWarbo: Oh yeah I have gotten gifts from pets
Nightvalien28: were they dead birds
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
hieroglyphica: @keep_it_lobster ....ew?
offbeatwitch: oh, somewhat same
Pteraspidomorphi: I would have appreciated the extra gifts
GapFiller: totally unrelated cat story: a football match the other week was interrupted by a cat running on the pitch
ShinobiPhoenix: @loadingreadyrun Plague of Gripes would disagree with you on giving Valentines to Pokemon
offbeatwitch: my family buys our dog gifsts
Jarcarp: Cat's just don't care.

Bugberry: He's a Heel
saiaseigm: I would give Bowsette a valentine.
tocu: Lets be reall Geno would be the cooler character to update the game than Waluigi
UnknownGerm: They just don't care that people care about him
Bistromaths: Waluigi is just stupid. Wario makes sense. It's an upside down M. Waluigi is...what?
CaptainSpam: Nah, put the Split the Room cat in Smash, you cowards!
ShinobiPhoenix: I am completely with Beej on this. Waluigi is stupid
Reecer6: I've gotta remake Wreck-It Ralph but with Waluigi now I guess.
KinoGami: wario is the best
DiscordianTokkan: It's like having ANY poll with a non sequitur or a joke (like "PINAPPLE, lol") as an option inevitably gets that as the winner
hajnal_endot: isabelle needs to be given a reason to do not work
saiaseigm: And hopefully Bowsette would give me... well let’s not go there
Lithobraker: he's a heel who got over
KinoGami: don't knock my perfect yellow and purple boy
GapFiller: Wario is a classy guy
richard_ermen: Wario may be crude, but at least he´s absolutely honest in his crudeness ^^
SAiconjr: maybe, but then why is it so many folks ship draco malfoy over harry potter?
Nightvalien28: wario is a bad guy, waluigi is a dude that wanted to play tennis
PhoenixMelior: Waluigi RPG when
CaptainSpam: Wario at least has some depth. He runs a company! He hunts treasure!
TehAmelie: Wario is crude and self-involved. Waluigi cares about people, even if he hates them
richard_ermen: @SAiconjr Because blonde and badboy ;)
GapFiller: Super Waluigi Land
ratzuka: who is tingle?
Phosphatide: wario is also a capitalistic pig TheIlluminati
Bistromaths: Did......anyone.....like Tingle?
Bistromaths: Like ever
GapFiller: Tinglechu
hajnal_endot: yes
Izandai: Waluigi has a personality, but no character.
PhoenixMelior: does anyone like Waluigi?
KinoGami: tingle likes tingle Kappa
red_shoes_jeff: Who the FUCK was calling out for more TINGLE!?
richard_ermen: Also Wario has the best laugh xD
Bugberry: Was Tingle ever popular in america before his games>
Simonark: Waluigi's Surgery Party
Invitare: Tingle is unironically popular in Japan though
Alness49: @Bistromaths He was a funny joke that I feel hit a little close to home for gamers
Papperslappen: Put Chuck Tingle in Smash!
Izandai: He's a complete jackass.
Bistromaths: Yeah his backstory was insanely uncomfortable
user_with_name17: I don't give a shit about any of them, if I am being honest. Its the mushroom kingdom
muondecay: look, they put him in hyrule warriors...and that was plenty
PharaohBender27: Same here, Beej
Reecer6: You keep saying lothario and it keeps confusing me because it ends in ario.
Izandai: A truly awful person.
ShinobiPhoenix: people who pretended to like Tingle are the reason to never give Waluigi anything
ContingentCat: that's a damn low bar for virtue
HbombAndFriends: A few years ago, my school did a career day, and my “career” was web developer. Each class made a “web page” with their favorite characters. Every class had one Waluigi. Some princesses, & superheroes, an occasional Mario, & even Kamen Rider Ghost. But always a Waluigi.
Alness49: "These 'Virtue Signallers' all up in my face about...*checks notes* Fraud"
richard_ermen: Buuuuuuuut Kathleeeeeeen!
Izandai: The concept of "virtue signaling" is complete bullshit all on its own, and in this context it's especially stupid.

Creideiki_SE: Commander Keen on Nintendo hardware is extra weird considering Keen was made as a tech demo for a PC port of Super Mario 3, but Nintendo didn't want to sell the license to id, so they came up with their own characters and setting to be able to use their cool engine: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2015/12/heres-what-id-softwares-pc-port-of-mario-3-could-have-looked-like/
GapFiller: speaking of virtue signalling been having to put up a lotta that re Skullflower this past week
frnknstn: Keen 4-6 were better than any 90s Mario game. Fite me.
Simonark: If you fake your own death, save it for insurance fraud
richard_ermen: Wasn´t Keen from Apogee?
TehAmelie: in ancient China famous calligraphers used to disappear and start over with different names and different styles when they reached middle age. for Youtubers maybe that's something to do when they turn 20

CaptainSpam: Ah, Jazz Jackrabbit...
Gnyrinn: Weren’t some of the Commander Keen games published by id?
MolaMolaphant: At a certain point, I'm not sure there's a meaningful difference between doing a thing because you want to show you have a virtue and doing the thing because you have the virtue. Like, if you're doing good things, most of the time it doesn't matter why?
Pteraspidomorphi: No, Keen was from id, but it might have been published by Apogee

KinoGami: put cosmo's cosmic adventure on switch you cowards
Izandai: Wait is that what the Freudian Id is? Is that what that means? He didn't just pull a couple letters out of a hat???
frnknstn: Put Rescue Rover on Switch you cowards!
PharaohBender27: Oh man, Wolfenstein 3d. Or as I knew it as a kid, "Wolf 3d."
user_with_name17: they all had the same distribution model. Give them the first episode free, when you beat it, display an ad as to where to buy the next to episodes and finish the game
Alness49: Anyway, Commander Keen in Smash you cowards?
hieroglyphica: @molamolaphant That mindset is for real how I argued away a lot of my toxic thoughts. It don't matter why you do good things
Master_Gunner: It's a common thing in software dev that the company owns anything you develop on company time/resources.
Dared00: News from literally right now: Apex Legends just hit 25 million players: https://twitter.com/VinceZampella/status/1095083377475051520

GapFiller: OH GOD embarrassing story time: mate at Uni gave me a couple Keen games
GapFiller: TEN YEARS LATER still not played them yet
offbeatwitch: oh yeah, I've seen videos on twitter
wildpeaks: yup, voice chat in multiplayer, rarely fun
TehAmelie: here's a relevant movie recommendation: Sorry to Bother You
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Do you even have the hardware to play them anymore? :D
CastleOtranto: I would have been into buying Keen on Switch until I saw they wanted $10 for it. I'll pass at that price.
hajnal_endot: @tehamelie put on your white man voice
1losttheGame: there are also ui indicators for when your partners shoot so you dont have to guess which is cool
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 maybe I do still have the same laptop I had in Uni
richard_ermen: Is Apex Legends the chinese copy or why does it have so many players?
user_with_name17: we could do that in Battlefield. It was called spoting and you got points for doing it and extra points if your ally kill them while spotting
wildpeaks: I loved how L4D back in the day was doing audio notifications for players in a similar way too, so people could collaborate without having to use voice chat
Alness49: Also can I just say how refreshing to see a multiplayer game launch with no issues, and a legitimately popular one too!
TehAmelie: i'm hoping to get rid of mine
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 bigger problem the drive the games were on may or may not still work
DoodlestheGreat: "Enemy spotted." "Tier 3 armor here." "I never loved you." :tf:
devil_dan: I feel lik ethere were other games that did something similar.
Izandai: That's a very obvious testing step that I think a lot of studios wouldn't think of.
offbeatwitch: saw a video on twitter of a woman playing Siege with some incredibly shitty Gamers™ ripping into her

PharaohBender27: Someone's character is going to get their knees busted!
margieargie: What happens if you don't pay? Does someone show up and virtually break your virtual legs?

wildpeaks: there were a lot of picnic images though
LaconicLad: there was a panic in there somewhre
DoodlestheGreat: Well, we figured you KNEW what happened...
TheWarbo: I think the closest we got was "oh I thought it was my wifi dying"
orionsrise1: I put a question mark in Beej!
offbeatwitch: PLAY INDIES
Kikazi: fair point Beej. There were a few panicBasket emotes, but, that could mean something else
coolbond: and not been made by bethesda
user_with_name17: !Beej
coolbond: they SUCK at QA
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: honestly even then... it needs to be designed to have fun in it
offbeatwitch: when is the last time I bought a triple A
ContingentCat: there was a few variations on "oh it's not just my internet"
mtvcdm: Nintendo's always just in its own world.
ani_laurel: Nintendo is almost printing money atm
offbeatwitch: probably hitman 2016 after IO went independent
Alness49: Nintendo just sit on a large nest egg
PhoenixMelior: what is a "lot"
Invitare: it's 26%
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: A LOT
PhoenixMelior: also I hate the word "FEMALES"
wildpeaks: exactly, I hate that word
Nightvalien28: YIKES
Nightvalien28: seabatYIKES seabatYIKES
NeuterCommuter: "A lot of female developers." -By Japanese Standards.
KharadBanar: just call them women
PhoenixMelior: o/ hi, I'm an engineer
wildpeaks: +1
HesGotNoPants: wheres graham
ExitPursuedByABear: male/female are fine as adjectives, but I don't like theme used as nouns when referring to people
LolCamAlpha: Hi, am also engineer
PhoenixMelior: (also I'm female)
frnknstn: Fix structural problems!
LolCamAlpha: same, phoenix!
GapFiller: problem ofc being Nintendo are a very traditionally Japanese Company
Alness49: This would be the time to announce the "Nintendo Scholarship for Women"
Sarah_Serinde: I seem to remember reading about how studies show that people (and not just men) think there's a significantly higher percentage of women present or talking than is actually the case...
PhoenixMelior: whoo! High five!
PharaohBender27: Japan has . . . issues
Juliamon: Women or minority.
Nightvalien28: a woman or a person of color
underhill33: Or and old person...
GapFiller: Japan like much of the Far East is just bad for women in general
mtvcdm: Japan has good PR.
GapFiller: see also China
PharaohBender27: Not to mention it also sucks to be someone of Korean descent in Japan
GapFiller: China is eg very patriachal
Sarah_Serinde: Like I don't remember the exact numbers but they might think they're at 50% but if you count it then it's a lot less
Jadenim: We do a lot to try and encourage women in engineering, but still only about 20% coming out of university
Amentur: Or a foreigner trying to work there ..
thefileclerk: @mtvcdm how do they have such good pr
Invitare: this official website states it's 26.1% female https://www.nintendo.co.jp/csr/en/report2018/employees/index.html
Jadenim: Makes it difficult to do balanced recruitment
the_canuck_mystic: !uptime

thefileclerk: @mtvcdm even their war crimes are swept under the rug
PhoenixMelior: as a lady in engineering it sure is easy to stand out though

ShinobiPhoenix: Nintendo: "Clean your own house first..."
Alness49: They "confirmed" Metroid Prime 4, how's that working out?
PharaohBender27: @Jadenim But then you try to get more women to go into that field in university, instead of just shrugging and going, "Whaddya going to do?"
ContingentCat: for all you know in a drastic shift from the previous games the next animal crossing could be a battle royal game
SAiconjr: we have top men. TOP men.
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: :) 25 months!
Invitare: Kathleen they released a report on this last year, we do know. It's 26%
wildpeaks: Taupe men. And some beige ones
Nemosaur: Guitar hero was the game that made me a "gamer"
ShinobiPhoenix: @contingentcat sure, but Workshop the mechanics of it right now
PharaohBender27: @Invitare Ooof
Jadenim: @pharaohbender27 We have been ever since I started 15 years ago; schools outreach, endorsing women in engineering events, placements, etc.
HbombAndFriends: RIP Guitar Hero
Phosphatide: guitar hero was guitarfreaks and drummania for the western world before konami finally realized that people outside of japan also played rhythm games
HbombAndFriends: Rock Band is still alive and well. :)
PhoenixMelior: WISE is typically a thing in all big universities these days
Dared00: GHTV was an amazing idea
Jadenim: Still not much progress :(
robo__nixon: RIP Live tv
ShinobiPhoenix: how exactly SHOULD Animal Crossing Battle Royale work? first to make a certain amount of money or catch certain fish?
offbeatwitch: capcom apparently just put their entire soundtrack catalogue on Spotifyt
PhoenixMelior: Beat Hazard also did that
user_with_name17: what about the songs you bought?
GapFiller: All Hail The CloudTM
PhoenixMelior: yeah, this? This is why I NEVER trust the cloud
mtvcdm: t h e c l o u d
LolCamAlpha: EXACTLY, Phoenix
Mister_BlueSky: *Chuck it into the sky* There it's in the cloud now.
ContingentCat: all hail the cloud
richard_ermen: Mc CLOUD!
Phosphatide: praise the cloud BlessRNG
user_with_name17: audible tells me that even if I stop the service I will still have access to the library, is it all a lie?
wildpeaks: "Trust the Cloud, it's not a smoke monster"
LolCamAlpha: people ask me why I don't subscribe to spotify THIS IS WHY
ThorSokar: "The Cloud" is just someone else's computer, stop letting them fool you
GapFiller: and this is why I still have all my CD's tapes vinyl ect ect
ContingentCat: "old man yells at cloud" sounds more reasonable now
SajuukSjet: this is why Bandcamp is nice.... cloud PLUS downloads
PharaohBender27: @Jadenim Yeah. I imagine it's hard to make headway against cultural biases regarding gender roles, as well as men in the field who push back at any efforts to make things more equitable (see: that asshole at Google who wrote a whole manifesto against diversity)
TallBlondePillager: What's this all about?
Pteraspidomorphi: Bandcamp is great
Dared00: @LoadingReadyRun Paul, you're wrong, GHTV was livestreaming channel that were streaming new songs 24/7. Custom song creation suite for musicians was Rock Band Network on X360.
LolCamAlpha: Bandcamp also lets you preview the whole album!
LolCamAlpha: Bandcamp is ace
wildpeaks: and indie games often put their soundtracks on bandcamp, it's neat
SajuukSjet: lolcamalpha: that's up to the artist :)
SajuukSjet: as it should be
robo__nixon: I went back to play GH live a few months back and no more online. sad
offbeatwitch: yeah, like how Wii Shop Channel shut down recently
orionsrise1: ahhhh! is anyone else getting the lag?
Phosphatide: does heather own her own DDR/PIU cab yet Kappa
LolCamAlpha: oh yeah, for sure, sajuuk
Pteraspidomorphi: Not at this time, orionsrise1
HbombAndFriends: Guitar Hero Dead
LolCamAlpha: also I did not know that because just about every album that I wanted to check out let me preview it!
Duvnal: funny story, the first ebook ever pulled off people's librarys without warning for copyright issues was, no joke, George Orwell's 1984
user_with_name17: I expect 95% of games not to work in 30 years
GapFiller: yeh there was a whole discussion abt this topic (featuring Mia!) at Desert Bus 2016
orionsrise1: stupid dsl
thefileclerk: glitch the game did sooooome of that
GapFiller: all abt magnetic storage tape
PharaohBender27: Oh cool, Kathleen knows someone going into the same sort of field I work in! (Though I don't specialize in digital archiving)
GrumblingMoblin: it would be nice, but the legal challenge and costs are difficulty to manage
Shadwhawk: *flashes back to the closure of City of Heroes*
user_with_name17: planned obsolescence is too profitable
SajuukSjet: lolcamalpha: an example is something like Welcome to Night Vale... they have a couple segments available to listen on their live shows, but the rest are only available after you purchase
Martizz1e: don't know if chat mentioned it because I'm just listening but I. the states, the FCC said it's legal for individuals to make servers for dead games
ThorSokar: yea, there's a list of like 20 or so games EA shuts off every year now, it's kinda insane how many games they make not work anymore now
LolCamAlpha: Interesting....
ani_laurel: Glitch just went opensource
Frankenfruity: But what about Day One patch
wildpeaks: this is why you should support GOG, they make great work to preserve games in a sustainable way
Inkompetence: Or a game that requires a day-one patch. If the patching service isn't available, you're probably in trouble.
LolCamAlpha: Though I'd imagine that you only need to preview a few episodes of WtNV to know whether or not you would want to purchase it
GapFiller: Mia talks abt digital preservation at DB2106: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl4KmhZM9H8
LolCamAlpha: *the whole thing
frnknstn: Physical copies don't help, Rockstar patched songs out of older GTA games, and you can't roll those back
GapFiller: more storage talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws_DGLzTqmw
thefileclerk: @ani_laurel ish, I wish one of them was more playable
Juliamon: LolCamAlpha the regular episodes are all available for free, only the live shows are paywalled
PharaohBender27: Head's-up: Twitch's update means I get to do my three-month sub all over again :P

PharaohBender27: (I did my initial 3-month announcement during Live)
user_with_name17: yeah, when you save these games you have to ask which version are you saving. The original game may be nothing like the final product that everyone ends up playing after a year
KharadBanar: CwC what's this
