KharadBanar: Epic's store actually doesn't suck, it was really surprising to me
Gekyouryuu: fourth?!
actionjb: Hey chat I just joined, what game he talking about?
TheMerricat: chat had to refresh, looks like I missed a chunk of stream, what game is Paul talking about now?
PharaohBender27: @actionjb Rainbow Six Siege
actionjb: @PharaohBender27 Thx
Spacecarl: benginTraitor
movienationyt: i am looking for steam friends
Myrniss: @actionjb i think Rainbow Six
OKB_1: My favourite podcast, Friendly Fire.
orionsrise1: sorry I don't have steam
Foxmar320: Ive seen lots of friendly fire on Siege streams
accountmadeforants: I figured we solved this by not having teammates block shots?
thefileclerk: choking through tcp/ip
KharadBanar: If you shoot your teammate and he dies IN REAL LIFE
AntiCrepuscular: reflected!
aitsu100: lol
thefileclerk: nice!
WrightJustice: waow
AntiCrepuscular: I am rubber you are glue?
corpocracy: Stop hitting yourself
Foxmar320: Stop shooting yourself :P
accountmadeforants: This just sounds like a challenge for trolls

Alness49: Oh, so it's the Troll-Suicide. Nifty
brainbosh: Wait, wasn't that an episode of Red Dwarf?
PharaohBender27: showlove250 Sorry to hear about all the recent tech woes at the Moonbase! Here's hoping the rest of 2019 goes more smoothly for you guys!
Rhynerd: Would that also apply to the hostage in a match?
Vyous: So, time to run into all of the team-mates bullets?
Nigouki: they added reflected damage for friendly fire to World of Warship and it was promptly abused
Alness49: Okay, that's cool that they also have a "no hard feelings" option then
accountmadeforants: But seriously, what's preventing them from making shots just clip through teammates?
Spacecarl: I get the impression that having the danger of friendly fire is important to that game
AntiCrepuscular: @accountmadeforants then you'd get teams stacking up in a queue to use the front players as a meat shield
Spacecarl: and adds risk for the explosive characters
AntiCrepuscular: ^
Spacecarl: balance reasons
wildpeaks: yeah, friendly fire risking getting yourself banned if you aim wrong is part of the charm, hmm
sir_jack_DB: Phortnite Phestival

ugh_sunlight: They were charging like £40 a ticket or something crazy
Alness49: But at the same time, it's in Norwich.
sir_jack_DB: "A tarpaulin lobbed over a van with a plastic slide sticking out the back [was] billed as a ‘Cave Experience’." oh NO
orionsrise1: anybody else getting an echo?
Alness49: I would take the desert island
TheMerricat: They trapped people on a island with no way off, overflowing toilets, nothing to eat but cheese sandwichs. and no actual acts
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: !SIR
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: @orionsrise1 no?
Dared00: @orionsrise1 nope, check your tabs
Spacecarl: Never go to the first event of anything that doesnt have a track record
BloodForTheCorelab: good old 2 winow echo...
AntiCrepuscular: This is like those Christmas Wonderland type events that crop up every year (usually a couple of reindeer in a muddy field)
couldntpickausername: I'm only getting echo if it's ported to the switch
orionsrise1: nope. only one tab open folks
orionsrise1: more than likely it's my dsl
TheMerricat: picture of the "cave expreience"
Nigouki: orionsrise1 check for a stray Paul hiding in your room
CamelAttack: Has a Paul Clone gotten into your house?
Anaerin: orionsrise1: Refresh/reload the tab. It may be that the browser's loaded two copies of the video, one behind the other.
orionsrise1: @nigouki oh god that's terrifying >(

incredulouspasserby: I mean. If that worked to get volunteers for Habitat, then good.
red_shoes_jeff: Playing it right now.

AshBurnem: Oh, booo
orionsrise1: @amentur . I'm on a tablet
Syntheticuh: pc port of ff9 is really good, its not like one of the bad ff6 ports at least
PMAvers: Portception
aitsu100: its pretty shoddy
Foxmar320: Square why you gotta do this
WrightJustice: oh boy
Amentur: Dang, I don't have any tablet knowledge :/
accountmadeforants: But yeah, the way they're mishandling that port is incredible
PharaohBender27: So much porting!
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: its ports all the way down
Silver__Knight_: Do you think they lost the files for the original?
CamelAttack: Square does not seem like a great company.
AshBurnem: Square hates its fans.
AntiCrepuscular: Ooooh, the pocket supercomputer port! lrrBEEJ
EightBitDreams: I read that the PC version has the audio bug fixed, but not console versions
red_shoes_jeff: No problems with it so far.
orionsrise1: @themerricat . I assume it's my internet because it has a history of dropping below 1mbps. i get fiber optic tomorr3!
MechaKuuga: LUL
blankslatearts: Hey Paul.
Foxmar320: Silver__Knight_ wouldn't be the first time they lost files
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: oh god the start-from-0 music after battles - I HATE that issue. The music is one of the main things you should experience in FF and the issue ruins the original experience cause you can't hear all the music
Silver__Knight_: Foxmar320 cough KH1 cough
TheMerricat: *fingers crossed for you* @orionsrise1

red_shoes_jeff: Is... that a problem?
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: the music bug also affects the FF's on Steam: FF4, FF5, FF6, FF7, FF8, FF9, perhaps 12...
Akaiatana: More like overplayed music :P
TheMerricat: I honestly don't understand what the folk in charge of Square Enix think at all these days. It's not like they are just money grubbing jerks like EA/Activision, but they just make really strange and stupid decisions.
orionsrise1: @themerricat . thanks because Murphy's law dictates its going to be a blizzard tomorrow
KartoffelKaiser: The music bug is not in 12. 12 doesnt have random encounters, for one
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: yeah PS4 is same problem - Fastfwd is not one button click like it could be - its Start - R1 - Start to turn it on or off
accountmadeforants: TheMerricat I often wonder whether Japanese game developers only ever learn how to develop for the current PlayStation, then take a hammer to the noggin and forget everything all over again
drthmik: that is How the IOS version worked fast forward everything
couldntpickausername: at least FF is treated better than Castlevania
GDwarf: Square-Enix used to do *fantastic* remakes, like, world-class ones, and then for the past decade they've stopped caring and farmed out shoddy projects to 3rd parties
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: @KartoffelKaiser oh right
WrightJustice: they just want the dolla dolla
Psychic_Ketchup: People will buy the port regardless of bugs, so they probably figured "why bother"
AshBurnem: At least Castlevania got a good TV series.
wildpeaks: o.O
Anaerin: A SEALED, New In Box copy.
AshBurnem: $100,150
ugh_sunlight: I'm sorry what...
Anaerin: It wasn't just the cart, it was still factory sealed in retail packaging.
mtvcdm: It's worth whatever I can get someone to pay for it.
TheMerricat: then the owner promptly opened it and blew on the contacts.
roxknee: @loadingreadyrun yo looking slick, and I mean Harvey Spector slick keep it going
AntiCrepuscular: :D
mtvcdm: A piece of rabbit dung is worth $100,150 if you can find someone willing to give you $100,150 in exchange for rabbit dung.

Jorge4hg: ahh evo, i understand evil japan
Dared00: oh, this. eugh
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I was watching Kenny Omega's coverage of the japanese EVO
PMAvers: Did somebody say CORE VALUES?
Gekyouryuu: "oh, no, breasts! we CAN'T show that! quick! back to blood and dismemberment!"

Zappeljakob: I keep hearing "Evil Japan"....

rf232: asspects?
Pal_Friendpatine: Well put @gekyouryuu ‘tis the world we live in
TheMerricat: @gekyouryuu wasn't breasts this time. they did a freeze cam that made it look like two fighters were 69ing
wildpeaks: oh boy
voslan: Oh Team Ninja... You really should change...
Stoffern: oh
KodeMage: this sounds well planned...
Gekyouryuu: @TheMerricat ....ok, that's a new one
TwoMenInAHorseCostume: Oooh, classy
AntiCrepuscular: NotLikeThis
KartoffelKaiser: ok yeah that's a bit much
KodeMage: like they knew exactly what they were doing
GDwarf: I'm utterly unsurprised that a Dead or Alive presentation would do this. Disappointed, but unsurprised.
Amentur: I guess chat didn't mind ..
Anubis169: you think it's easy making physics that realistic? the engine could be used in so much stuff <3
Akaiatana: When they came back, was it a Wake Up Super?
PMAvers: The best part was apparently they cut right to a add of Mortal Kombat 11.
PharaohBender27: So, what ARE Evo's core values!?
KharadBanar: C O R E V A L U E S
Rhynerd: Remember the “I’m a Fighter” advertisement thing for an earlier DoA?
KodeMage: Seems like it perfectly reflects the fighting game community and that's the freaking problem
accountmadeforants: Imagine if those guys got to develop a Metroid game
Papperslappen: oh no! my brand!
Jorge4hg: core values...
wildpeaks: yeah seems hard to believe no one knew
MercurialVox: a "Cheese it it's the fuzz" button
TheMerricat: funny part is they killed the western side of the stream but didn't cut the Japanese side.
Tithegha: @kodemage preach
Bobtheninjagoldfish: OH NOW BEWBS.. Back to people literally kicking the shit out of each other and Making each others head explode and Spine ripping and good wholesome CORE VALUES like that
hoktauri: Can I get a game without excessive gore and without jiggle?
KodeMage: the fighting game community has always been super toxic
Anubis169: they're probably covering their asses against backlash
PMAvers: And right to a ad with Sonya Blade having her face literally ripped off.
KodeMage: @hoktauri there are many
Alness49: I feel Evo bought into their "No, we're cleaning up our game, it's a serious game now", but DoA knew what they were doing
dissintegrate: hello
PharaohBender27: @PMAvers That sounds horrifying
TheMerricat: @hoktauri Smash?
PandasAndPancakes: on the one hand it's silly, on the other hand I'm glad to know they'll consider cutting the stream if content is too offensive.
KartoffelKaiser: well their marketing should reflect that then
CamelAttack: Counterpoint, just because the violence as bad doesnt undermind the sexism they were presenting.
NovaTiempo: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 56:21.
lostindagame: doa has always been a little provocative to get press so why was this a surprise?
Erudite_Cynic: you got boobs in my bloodsport
Alness49: As far as I'm aware, with the violence or sex issue it's not about one or the other, it's the combination of the two that gets people's hackles up
PMAvers: And now we just need Marvelous to announce a partnership with ASW to develop a Senran Kagura fighting game.
togashinaruta: I feel like the studio itself is split on what they are trying to do with that game
KodeMage: @Alness49 in the US it's ok to show lots of violence and sexualy is heavily persecuted
Stoffern: the ghost?
PharaohBender27: Oh, is this the EA story?
couldntpickausername: if your company is laying off 800 people you did something wrong
KodeMage: blizzard
togashinaruta: Paul laid off the rest of LRR?
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: I think though that its not unreasonable for there to be stream guidelines for different audiences that could be easily breached by doa's usual fare
Jorge4hg: activition can get in the sea
Nightvalien28: but loot boxes are just cosmetics, they are supposed to help devs grow
KodeMage: @couldntpickausername not necessarialy not every job is meant to be a forever job
PMAvers: #FireBobbyKotick
Foxmar320: Yeah Jim Sterling has strong opinions on that
PharaohBender27: Sorry, I meant Activision-Blizzard
ThorSokar: "We had our best year ever!, You're all fired!"
Bobtheninjagoldfish: 800 people laid off WHEN THEY HAD MORE REVENUE THAN EVER BEFORE
korvys: But Paul, they're doing so well, their investor call said so *eyeroll*
couldntpickausername: @KodeMage 800
KharadBanar: #FireBobbyKotick #ThankGodForJim
CamelAttack: #FireBobbyKotick
PharaohBender27: #FireBobbyKotic

Nightvalien28: such a good company
togashinaruta: That Polygon article had a lot of problems
AntiCrepuscular: porque no los dos?
KodeMage: @couldntpickausername ok, some examples where that happens all the time, seasonal field work, the decennial census in the us, contract work
Jorge4hg: that's big mess up
sir_jack_DB: yes, it can be more than one thing
Alness49: So the Activision news had a different lense to me given Graham's piece on Destiny. Their biggest francise just left the building leaving their studios suddenly missing work.
Invitare: are any of the people responsible for thir organisational failure losing their jobs?
dissintegrate: how do you feel about what god in society and the lack of acknowledgement
PharaohBender27: Yet, why is it that the people who CAUSED the mess-up don't suffer the consequences?
KodeMage: @couldntpickausername basically every year after christmas it happens, the only difference is it's spread out geographically
CamelAttack: The problem with the discussion of the business side is that it still ignores that they people at the top failed massively by having so much staff they didn't need. But they make the people at the bottom pay for their fuck ups.

togashinaruta: Those organization problems were predictable- upper management could have planned/adjusted better
PharaohBender27: @CamelAttack Exactly
Anubis169: they took on too many staff for what was required?
PMAvers: Temp-to-hire: the biggest scam.
ThorSokar: so, greedy and incompetent, that's always a good mix
SydPreviouslyHeadache: yeah togashinaruta that's how i feel about it
Rockario: So despite having a great year, management did a bad job?
GDwarf: It's not even that they over-hired when they were hiring, it's that their work demands are cyclic but their staffing isn't.
jamesk902: Yeah, the problem isn't so much being greedy as it is being stupid.
Nightvalien28: and yet they can give 15 mil to one guy
cheetoJack: Sounds like the large company I work for
KodeMage: Look, it's awful that it happens but it's not like these people will be unemployed for long. They have in demand skills in a booming economy.
TheMerricat: And instead of utilizing that overstaffing for new projects, fire them
Nightvalien28: no they can't they are that incompetent
PharaohBender27: Maybe the people who keep lrrEFF ing up like this should have their "value to the company" reassessed?
Foxmar320: Other than the yearly CoD what else are they making right now?
Anubis169: TheMerricat: it's down to accountancy and HR book balancing
KodeMage: they can't just make up a new project out of nowhere
wildpeaks: and the company will continue to suffer no consequence
CamelAttack: Booming economy does not equal job growth. The markets can be doing great and still have big unemployment. see Activision-Blizzard.
TheMerricat: I hear the LRR ghost...
GDwarf: That said, there's an interview with Nintendo when they were doing quite poorly where...Iwata, I think it was, essentially said "we don't lay off workers because they won't work well if that threat is hanging over their heads", but Nintendo also has ludicrous amounts of money saved up
dissintegrate: do u think that peoples blindness to god is a problem
Orgmastron: *incoherent grumbling about capitalism*
KodeMage: @wildpeaks that's the problem, these people should be entitled to severance by law, they were mismanaged
GDwarf: KodeMage: True, but they could've seen this coming two years ago and started projects then
Fruan: They're not (just) greedy, they're incompetent
togashinaruta: It’s literally their job to make up new projects out of nowhere- that’s what a publisher does
Jorge4hg: Hail chair
MercurialVox: more a case of corporate incompetency than corporate greed in this case
KodeMage: they need a union
CamelAttack: Hail chair!
Alness49: @GDwarf Also you can't fire someone in Japan. Or close to never
GoblinRanger: that haunted router running around again?
Anubis169: Chair stream manYES
Jorge4hg: I agree chair
Foxmar320: I missed Chair
rs25mtg: !chair
mtvcdm: Hi, non0monetized chair!
gredorabugman: Chair
Karfsma778: @KodeMage then they just fire the whole union
accountmadeforants: I literally never have enough people to manage or assign jobs. And if there's not enough assigned/funded work, that still wouldn't excuse getting rid of people over retraining a bunch of juniors.
GDwarf: KodeMage A union wouldn't have helped in this case
SydPreviouslyHeadache: yeah, GDWarf, can't make something great with that kind of blow to employee moral
GDwarf: Games should unionize
togashinaruta: Unions don’t automatically fix things - they are just another set of tool
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: I love video games, but I hate that seemingly every sector of the industry involved in games/hardware/warehouses seems to treat employees badly
GDwarf: But these weren't programmers/designers, and unions don't protect against layoffs, generally
Alness49: Yes Games should Unionise. No, this might not have helped in this case.
Zephyr256k: @GDwarf it's not even just that they have a whole bunch of money laying around. The top executives all took massive pay cuts to avoid layoffs.
KodeMage: @togashinaruta a union would have seen that there was an overstaffing issue ahead of time and would help the people who were let go transition to other jobs
Tiber727: @GDwarf Nintendo, for better and for worse, does things its own way. Investors would probably like to tear Nintendo apart for not "putting their cash reserves" to work or something like that.
Papperslappen: In Europe it is quite common to corporations having to negotiate layoffs with the Unions
CamelAttack: Unions can cut down on the amount of contractors there are. So people being fired are notin such a bad position after a firing.
PMAvers: Or at least fought for severance packages.
KodeMage: @paul there's no reason they all can't have a union, unions aren't just for "special" people they're for everyone
Havtorn_Epsilon: Speaking as a game dev, I would love unions. Unfortunately it's a deeply toxic discussion that never gets anywhere
togashinaruta: @kodemage maybe- I’ve seen unions do good, and I’ve been in some awful union jobs

KodeMage: I've noticed a tendency among capitalists to group people into different classes and imply that different jobs are different levels of "worthy" to be in a union.
Zephyr256k: So, you can say these layoffs were a 'failure of organization' rather than greed by the executives, but it's greed by the executives that dictates layoffs as the solution to that problem rather than find a solution that doesn't involve layoffs, like pay-cuts for the executives that actually caused the problem int he first place.
KodeMage: lol fortnight dances, he was denied is copyright
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: theres an animators guild that pushed for a union a while back
KodeMage: carlton can't
PharaohBender27: On the other hand, I'm a member of ILWU Local 5, and most of the members are workers at Powell's Books, whereas I'm an archivist (the Oregon Historical Society recently joined Local 5)
Papperslappen: Unions have the ability to do solidarity actions where one union can go into conflict on another part of the workforces behalf
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: they do wage guidelines which is super helpful
TeiranDragon: it's strange, the only interaction I ever have with unions is with teamsters who work with convention centers. and I love them because they help me move All the heavy boxes.

CaptainSpam: Yeah, if the Carlton can be copyrighted, Valve would also be in trouble for having it in TF2 for a couple years now...
PandasAndPancakes: unionising together helps generate solidarity and collective bargaining power
darkecologist: whatever happened to the tattoos on athletes copyright dispute?
wildpeaks: at least there is a clear precedent now
WhaDidBeejPutInDPie: "Its not unusu AL! To be loved, by anyone!"
togashinaruta: I wish Harmonix was still making content for Dance Central. (Sigh)
accountmadeforants: Our union, which is ostensibly for developers, still fights for our testers in China. Yes, there can be more overarching/cooperative unions. Whether US corporations accept that profit requires literally any amount of labour is dubious.
Foxmar320: Destiny 1 also had the Carlton dance
dissintegrate: people carrying the church in there minds and hearts
Zappeljakob: Guild Wars 2 also has it
Loonatic93: If you can copyright a wrench, you can copyright a ball!
TheMerricat: @wildpeaks not really, because you _can_ copyright dances, but not a single move. They decided that Carlton was just move, not a full dance. But they haven't and won't define the line by between just a move and a dance.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: the norn dance
Amentur: It is still a rather iconic dance
CamelAttack: They said it didn't have enough steps in to be considered a full dance.
Akaiatana: I'm pretty sure Fortnight's version suffers from Copy-Floss
darkecologist: 'we need more complicated dances'
jamesk902: Or the company that owns Fresh Prince, under the "work for hire" rule.
Gizmoloid: In the case of Carlton dance, didn't the actor come up with the dance himself?
CrazyStreamTime: Yussef Cole at Waypoint pointed out: "This question cannot be adequately answered without squaring Epic’s behavior within a long history of mainstream white America stealing music and dance from black artists, decontextualizing their work, and repackaging it to make it more palatable (and thus, profitable) to white audiences."
Rockario: This feels in-line with whatever precedddent exists for composer v performer stuff in music
Nigouki: Hasbro figures looks like horrific bootlegs compared to the GSC Figmas
KodeMage: how long until there's an Overwatch card game? They just did transformers which is a good game but not selling very well.
Foxmar320: Yeah thats odd
Nigouki: there have been Figmas for a while
PMAvers: I mean, there are Nendroids and stuff]
ThorSokar: I thought there already were for some reason?
Shadwhawk: Yeah, they don't look as good, but the Figmas cost like 3-4x as much
Nightvalien28: great that will help pay their workers ... oh wait
Akaiatana: Overwatch had figurines, but not 'toys'
TheMerricat: wish you could Star people in chat @crazystreamtime & @rockario
AshBurnem: And there have been FunkoPop.
Alness49: Also these are designed to be played with.
KodeMage: isn't overwatch stuff more like statues than toys?
Anubis169: LoadingReadyRun: While I was in Tesco looking for a present for my little niece's 2nd birthday, was going through the games section, I saw "Monopoly: Fortnite Edition"
Anubis169: neeeeeeeearly threw up a little wetVOM
PMAvers: A team-up between two companies that overwork and underpay their workers.
togashinaruta: Comparison - There’s the license for “Indiana Jones” and a separate license for “Indiana Jones that looks like Harrison Ford”
Foxmar320: welp
mtvcdm: You can finally pit Tracer against Roman Reigns just like a real WWE match!
FlyingUltraCar: Actually, they farm out most of the monopoly reskins to USAopoly
Akaiatana: Paul, would you say that department has a monopoly on them?
KodeMage: yes, they do have a monopoly division
CaptainSpam: There are so. Many. Monopolies. Which seems very ironic.
justforplaylists: So to be a toy, it can't have too many or too few points of articulation?
FlyingUltraCar: which is an actual company
Frankenfruity: I just can't believe that game still sells
Rockario: @TheMerricat Thank you?
wildpeaks: unironically I bet there is such a department
KodeMage: Only one company makes Monopoly?
AshBurnem: The Mario Kart Monopoly has custom rules. It's actually reeeeally good.
Shadwhawk: The Pharah figma looks so damn good
TheMerricat: :-)
Tiber727: Boardwalk had better be "the point" because no one gets on it.
FlyingUltraCar: (I interned at Hasbro for six months)
couldntpickausername: mtg?
accountmadeforants: The Monopoly Department almost certainly developed both teleportation and brainwashing technology. There's no reason why that game keeps appearing on any shelves.
LordShadner: this morning I saw Monopoly: Cheaters Edition lrrHERE
SketchyDetails: Monopoly: The Gathering?
Rockario: Gotta keep putting out new version of Moonpoly because people are figuring out it is not a fun game
KodeMage: Hasbro doesn't actually make anything they just own and license brands.
CaptainSpam: I thought USAopoly was a knock-off company?
KodeMage: Hasbro makes no products, literally none.
mtvcdm: Is this going to be like the 'world' themed Monopoly where Boardwalk and Park Place were handed to Montreal and Riga, Latvia? TRUE STORY
devil_dan: Mummies Alive Monopoly when?
Papperslappen: I imagine Monopoly being made in Monopolytown, a company town utopia from the 50s where everything is great but something under the polished facade seems rotten
togashinaruta: Coming soon - monopoly themed monopoly
Bartlebad: USAopoly gets licences to make versions of Monopoly, but recently they've started making their own games
FlyingUltraCar: They make new versions of monopoly internally when they change any rules. Like, Monopoly Gamer was developed internally
PMAvers: I do appreciate that some of the buyers for board games in big box stores are starting to get good taste. I saw Azul in Walmart the other day.
Foxmar320: Yeah Monopoly is not actually that fun to play
Bartlebad: Like Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle, that's a good one they make
Gnyrinn: They put Monopoly go out to tender?
Rockario: @mtvcdm Surprised they didn't pick Essen lrrBEEJ
underhill33: Monopoly Legacy when?
FurbyGoneFubar: They are more likely to be designed for parents to buy for their kids who they know are in to thing X.
CrazyStreamTime: Yay AP
aitsu100: right monopoly the way to ruin friendships before smash was invented
FlyingUltraCar: I worked on brand writing, which means I have read the rules and copyright info for Monopoly more times than any human being should
ThePerrBearr: I stll need to watch that movie
RealGamerCow: weird flex, but okay.
dissintegrate: if u had thorns on your wall it would be agood representation of sin leading from the light to darkness
Papperslappen: Put Gritty in Apex
PMAvers: Monopoly Legacy: Whoever won the previous game starts with 5x the cash of everyone else and if they would go bankrupt gets a mob loan and can buy back in.
Alness49: Chapie, from the film, Chapie
mtvcdm: Rockario, it was the results of an online vote. the US Cities version got a similar treatment and there it was Minneapolis and Pierre, SD as the dark blues.
Anubis169: Monopoly's great to play, where else can you get the same kind of gamer rage that Overwatch and Fortnite induce in teenage/20s players without actually being at a computer? :D
Nightvalien28: I hate this age we live in
CaptainSpam: Strangely, ThinkGeek sells some of the more nerd-culture-related Monopolies.
accountmadeforants: Neil Blomkamp also made that BioWare game advertisement, right? Is this not also a big advertisement?
grimpo96: Hey, chat stream with Paul? awesome
jamesk902: In theory you could make a contract by Twitter, though that wouldn't be enough.
Nigouki: studios rarely let you make anything these days without taking the IP rights
FurbyGoneFubar: I mean, US troops aren't drawing out of Syria yet... So not sure if that's on twitter deals or on the current president not honoring deals....
Rockario: "What more could there be?" he asked, having just done a story about who owns the rights to dances with different choreographers and performers
wildpeaks: (haven't seen the movie and don't recognize any of the names mentioned, welp)
dissintegrate: people asking jesus into there hearts
Gizmoloid: Movie's called Chappie, the band in question is Die Antwoord.

accountmadeforants: I'm impressed this game is still this big
togashinaruta: Weren’t all of these locations battle points i

Dared00: also, Scalebound might be coming to... Switch, according to rumors
ThePerrBearr: when it first came up i thought they were actually putting an ad for a new Final Fantasy game in KH
Havtorn_Epsilon: The sad part is that you can't really Game Jam those without running into copyright issiues if you want to do something with them later
AntiCrepuscular: Amentur huh... I noticed that it looks like the only one labelled "square enix"
accountmadeforants: You were eaten by a tiger
Rockario: I just watched that VoD last night, the text addventure was a real good short subject
