Zhedor: soooo, do i prioritize playing anthem or watching cameron play anthem? Or do i challenge my pipes and try to do both?
TehAmelie: you only get one chance to see the show live
Zhedor: hmmm, true
TehAmelie: i'd do that and see how long i can hold out without playing it myself
TehAmelie: well, i usually do
Zhedor: sounds like a sensible idea. thats unusual for this chat ;) :D

stateofcomatose: So Cam, how much of this game have you gotten to play?

FurthestChunk55: would it be possible to turn up the room mic?
Zhedor: Is this chat going to be so negative the whole time? because I really don't feel like putting myself through that
Traion: Let's be reasonable Bioware didn't want this. This seems like something EA wanted to jump into the live service market

Kazman20a: you sound fine Cam

Drakas: hello
Myrdin90: hewwo Cam
Anaerin: Miss_Katherine: No, that's Apex Legends.
TheMerricat: You sound perfect my end.
Traion: Miss_Katherine that is Apex
Miss_Katherine: ohhhh okay
Miss_Katherine: ty
Myrdin90: is Anthem better or worse than Apex?
tenthtechpriest: i will say this, they manged to fix a LOT of the early access issues. mind you most of those issues were load screens, but still
HondoTrigger: surprise Loading Time!
Laserbeaks_Fury: WOuld you describe this a more of a bunt. Runners are advanced on bases and momentum is not lost
FurthestChunk55: this is the not-destiny that people have been ragging on

Zhedor: better, cxause it's not a battle royale
TallBlondePillager: @Myrdin90 Næmmen halla øystein
stateofcomatose: Um, Cam, you okay?
Evochron13: wait what?
Anaerin: You're really going to regret that, Cam.

MothProphetEcho: cameron shlupping his numb cheek asmr
NathanJay_GA: so when you said you should get in a fight, it seems you meant against yourself :P
Anaerin: stateofcomatose: He had a filling earlier today.
Rhynerd: Hello! Time for me to watch an Anthem stream that isn’t from that pal of mine from London.
Myrdin90: @tallblondepillager hei hvem er du?
Foxmar320: Its very crowded
Dix: I wish I had time for more looter-shooter 'MMO's
Freshly_Toasted: Anthem seems alright, like it's not super bad or anything. Just not exceptional enough to stand up to the hype
Miss_Katherine: I mean, I dont like Destiny so maybe I would like this one instead!
Foxmar320: You already have Warframe, Destiny, and The Division.
Kazman20a: My only problem with Apex so far, is that there is nothing I have seen in it that makes me want to play it over anything else
Gekyouryuu: same, @Dix
ninja_theory_ashrams: Looter shooter can't be crowded, EA just decided to devote more studios to making them
Dix: Aaaaaaaaand there's your title. *drini*
Kazman20a: anthem not apex
Dix: *drink*
Oatway_: "shlooter", please
Drakas: i love the sound track for this game
stateofcomatose: Ah yes, the Anthem being the canon reason for DLC
TehAmelie: so it's a kind of anthemanathema
TheMerricat: All I know, like Anthem or not, I'm going to enjoy numb Cam playing it. :-)
accountmadeforants: I didn't realize "looter shooter" even was a specific market, but I guess it is, huh?
Freshly_Toasted: Could use a whole lot more variety than anything else
jessaayyy: no I said steamed hams that's what I call hamburgers
TallBlondePillager: @Myrdin90 Daniel (imladris) :p La merke til at steam-navnet ditt plutselig dukka opp i chat
Foxmar320: Ill hop in Discord after you get out of the single player bits
solemn_storm: "freelancers" is a weird name
PhoenixMelior: this intro certainly feels like Bioware
MalBeam: so precursors built terraforming robots that ran amok?
Foxmar320: The opening is really good
adamjford: So these Freelancers only work for one employer? Sounds like Employees to me lrrBEEJ
Myrdin90: @tallblondepillager ah I see
Laserbeaks_Fury: You know, that one first shot of the javelin looked a *lot* like an angaran
Rhynerd: @solemn_storm is it because of the Mercenary nature of the term?
JediTransmit: Oh man, how much did I miss?
FurthestChunk55: so as is tradition for a Cameron stream I'm present for, time to ramble unbidden about Warhammer 40k Kappa
EikoandMog: It's called Sham Contracting.
Freshly_Toasted: I get you need a name but freelancers working together as part of an organisation is a little... weird
CaptainSpam: So this is just a game about learning various national anthems?
accountmadeforants: But then, it took me a while to realize that "MOBA" was an actual genre, and that "like DOTA" had fallen out of favour.
TheArchitectX: So how much do these Freelancers get paid per word?
Miss_Katherine: is that a krogan? <3
Foxmar320: JediTransmit almost nothing it just started
ContingentCat: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 10:10.
FurthestChunk55: she has a cool hat
TehAmelie: i hope that somewhere there's a book lying around that you can read that's telling the entire plot of the Elder Scrolls games
sivakrytos: @adamjford this way the employer doesn't need to pay for health insurance :P
TheMerricat: @JediTransmit you got here on the intro cinematic. Only thing you need to know is Cam just got back from the dentist and his face is still numb. :-)

Freshly_Toasted: This feels very american
Simonark: Wait, Catherine Tate and Kristen Schaal are in this game?
Rhynerd: @stateofcomatose they get a voice later.
TehAmelie: he's super happy about something. my guess is the war
Rockario: I literally *just* remembere that this is a different game than Apex Legends :P
tenthtechpriest: how come those guys are wearing helmets and we aren't?
MalBeam: 'lancers seems like a better name for the pilots, given that they fly javalins
HazaTheRaider: getting to the transhumanism early, I see

Rhynerd: @tenthtechpriest I don’t think you’d want to wear a helmet while slipping into one of those.
Rockario: It would be claustrophobic until the neural interface kicked in, and you feel at one with your awesome robot body
HazaTheRaider: and... dead.
EikoandMog: Man, it'd be real cool if we were doing that.
Dix: GDI rookie
Miss_Katherine: omg you get to be a robot that fights dragons??!!?? how have i not heard mroe about this
Tiber727: @tenthtechpriest Wearing a helmet is like wearing a red shirt. You don't want to wear a helmet.
FurthestChunk55: man it'd be great if we got to do that
Akaiatana: If they don't find you Andy, at least they'll find you Anthem
Anaerin: Hello, Rookie, have you tried turning your Javelin on and off again?
TehAmelie: viva la differents
Vyous: The weird long-ankles are kinda disconcerting.

Anaerin: TallBlondePillager: It wouldn't surprise me.
MalBeam: man, fighting a wyvern sounds like a cool introductory tutorial fight
Sarah_Serinde: Akaiatana Hi yes that Red Green pun makes me very happy :D
Stoffern: Its not Jennifer Hale
HazaTheRaider: "shoot the thing, spacebabble, got it"
EvilBadman: FemLancer is not Hale
TallBlondePillager: @PhoenixMelior Sometimes it's Laura Bailey :p
Miss_Katherine: i love those jump legs omg
orellien2773: I really am glad that they gave the PC a voice, really helps with teh storytelling.
Piratical_tendancies: *Boing*
Miss_Katherine: Yeah, very cool so far
samuraitiger19: I leanred recently that Jennifer Hale voices the lead singer fo The Hexes in a Scooby Doo movie... I forget the title
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh excellent, I was hoping to see some Anthem! So that's where Cameron disappeared to.
ThePov42: visuals are good
Stoffern: Its not Bailey either, this time
TehAmelie: these legs are made for jumpin
Gallium71: This start seems interesting enough
tenthtechpriest: rabbit mode engage
Dix: Actually NOT Jennifer hale this go for the Freelancer
LegionofLashes: this is very much andromeda so far
orellien2773: Oh, and female voice is Sarah Elmaleh:
notarealartist: Is there motionblur?
Gallium71: looks neat...
KinoGami: visually this game is very interesting
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Go around the lasers, not into them.
FurthestChunk55: that sure is some lava
Freshly_Toasted: This is cool, anthem's visuals are one of it's strengths
KinoGami: i wish my pc would play nicely with it

Myrdin90: fire hot

Foxmar320: Fire very hot
DaSunao: lrrFINE

Miss_Katherine: lets play "the lava is lava" LUL
NathanJay_GA: 10 out of 10

notarealartist: Cam, i ask myself everyday
FurthestChunk55: gamers are very similar to dogs

wicker_knight: hi all. This is an RPG? I thought this was another battle arena game?
Myrdin90: is there alot of motion blur or something? im getting a headache from watching Cam turn the camera too fast
adamjford: @wicker_knight it's a Loot Shooter
Dix: Oof yeah TehAmelie this is definitely messing with me a bit
FurthestChunk55: @wicker_knight you're thinking of Apex Legends
FurthestChunk55: this is Anthem, a not-Destiny
TallBlondePillager: @wicker_knight This is more of a third-perrson action shooter
Stoffern: always turn off motionblurr
TheMerricat: can anyone acutally hear the background comms?
e_bloc: showlove400 sweet. . . was just thinking about buying this game and seeing on on tewsdaynewday helps a lot. if you don't mind me asking, what are you playing tonight on TS? <3 you Cameron
wicker_knight: @FurthestChunk55 well, I thought this was in the same genre as Apex Legends, yes
HazaTheRaider: greetings Cammander; are there any options for motion blur adjustment?
wicker_knight: not-stiny, got it
Kramburger: One thing I noticed about the combo is there there's an ability called 'Detonating Strike' which is a Primer, not a Detonator lrrFRUMP

Foxmar320: Im sure that guy is fine
Sirius2010: are we having fun?
Rhynerd: That scorpion got some lift!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Freelancer Banana
FurthestChunk55: man, we go from 0 to the apex of our jump immediately
Akaiatana: If a freelancer falls into lava, are they working for exposure?
KharadBanar: It sure looks like we are supposed to be having fun
FurthestChunk55: the jumps are very sudden
BrindleBoar: the real question is why they don't have a backup mission coordinator - or maybe personnel less prone to fainting
TallBlondePillager: It also doesn't look super thrilling, Cameron
RatekStormcrow: Looks very starship troopers at the moment, especially the books where thy have those Exo Skeletons
DandyGeek: I think they are already looking into ways to overhaul the revive system
aesir_blade: So is the game music the anthem?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: The environment detail and the jumpy legs look like fun but so far I have to agree with the people who've said this game looks very generic. If I didn't know what it was I could mistake it for any number of AAA games.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Too be fair, Javelins are super heavy, it's less a jump and a controlled take off
Sirius2010: looks like Andromeda should have
Rhynerd: @brindleboar funny enough, a character that appears later in this game is a backup cypher.
HazaTheRaider: this looks way more fun; rocket-boosted parkouring across a dangerous landscape
samuraitiger19: Yeah it's very middle of the road squad shooter like Destiny or Warframe.
ProfBadger: ugh, dangerous power sources.
Drakas: has any one else been playing anthem
TehAmelie: so far it looks more fun to play than Destiny tbh
samuraitiger19: I poo poo it because I hate EA and what they did
TehAmelie: which i guess is the game we have to compare it to
Zhedor: I have, @Drakas
Gekyouryuu: *hacker voice* I'm in
Foxmar320: This mission is going fine
ThePov42: I kinda dig the flavor
adamjford: Polygon has a video about Anthem's generic design that's MOSTLY about Truck Nuts goofs but makes some good points
adamjford: It's good
Foxmar320: lrrFINE
EikoandMog: The Anthem is really kind dumb as a threat.
FurthestChunk55: so our team is about to mega die
CaKnuckleguy: I've been playing since Origin pre-launch. It's still fun
Roughly21Smurfs: Well this all seems awful
BrindleBoar: poor chain of command in evidence
Myrdin90: moron
HesGotNoPants: anthem of creation.....roll credits
boooling: The gun feel in the game isn’t very exciting for me
TallBlondePillager: Why would you, with a gun, fly close enough to a melee monster that it could swat you?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It really doesn't seem that much like Destiny TBH. It looks more like Mass Effect almost.
HazaTheRaider: oh no, poor.... whoever that person was?
tenthtechpriest: breakdown in the chain of command
Foxmar320: Still everything is going fine
BrindleBoar: "retreat!" "no!" ... who's in charge
KharadBanar: These robot suits look like they allow for no facial expressions

FurthestChunk55: faye is giving me garnet from steven universe vibes
Myrdin90: oh no! not... that guy...
togashinaruta: Oh, this is the part that I missed when the alpha build crashed
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: All the lava is just making me think of Death Mountain in Breath of the Wild and I jsut want to play that instead.
RatekStormcrow: You can't see the color of their shirts under the armor , maybe some are red ...
Foxmar320: Ive taken down one titan solo and it took forever.
HazaTheRaider: well done, whoever. that was

samuraitiger19: Wow... he's a dumbass
FurthestChunk55: yeah the guy in charge is going full Ahab
HazaTheRaider: was that cinematic really weird and like... floaty in animation to anyone else?
FurthestChunk55: never go full Ahab
Erudite_Cynic: but but but Porkins!
Papperslappen: Red leader was my favorite leader
HazaTheRaider: the end was wonky for reasons i can't explain
TheArchitectX: "No! Not that face and voice that we met all of 2 minutes ago."
Tiber727: You take that back! Red Leader is the best Star Wars character!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the constant references to "Freelancers" are making me think of RvB

wicker_knight: @MAPBoardgames doesn't look like it no

EikoandMog: Like, this would have been a great FPS RPG. As a "live service" it's just kind of meh.
TallBlondePillager: One failed mission and the entire freelancer class is just completely shunned. What.
Telabu: i like how lone dude sadly sweeping is the universal indicator for the decay of a group or building
Gekyouryuu: axolotl bunnies?
ContingentCat: aww space bunnies
FurbyGoneFubar: SUperhero landing!"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: screw everything I want to go pet the fernbunnies
Zhedor: More Detective Hops mysteries!!!!
Rhynerd: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou they’re called grabbits!
Tiber727: @RomanianMyEscutcheon It was between magic and jetpack, and they chose jetpack.
RomanianMyEscutcheon: I'm going to start a Proper Noun count, I swom 2 Jon.
Anaerin: Why hello Stephen Mangan.
TheMerricat: @TallBlondePillager I think it's more, one failed mission and there are hardly any left because that was the whole deal that got wiped out
accountmadeforants: That's some nice banter
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: okay flying around does look super cool
Kikazi: yeah, that's a bit harsh, one failed mission and everything falls apart?... oh well, here goes the redemption arc
ProfBadger: Soooo, most MMOs
ninja_theory_ashrams: Is there an in story reason for bio-luminescence rvolution?
samuraitiger19: Oh god... is this the same guy who voices the annoying computer on your ship in Warframe?
DandyGeek: ooh, harvest materials
Gallium71: This is very pretty...
ThePerrBearr: that sounds amazing
ContingentCat: !birb
LRRbot: Tweet, twe-twe-tweet, tweet, squawk!
FurthestChunk55: the flying looks like mario 64 flying for some reason
ProfBadger: except Wow because they try to take flying out.
ThePov42: I like that this valley kinda looks like a hand curling into a fit
Foxmar320: The world is beautiful and the flight feels really good.
Dix: I dig it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: in complete sincerity, I love flying around looking at things
TallBlondePillager: @TheMerricat I guess? Didn't come across very well tbh
aitsu100: yeah i love the Ironman Sim part of this game
Roughly21Smurfs: They kept track in the demo of how many Grabbits were killed lrrBEEJ
Myrdin90: wow that is PRETTY
Anaerin: samuraitiger19: No, I believe this is the guy who played Wheatley in Portal 2.
aClonedPickle: most warframe voices are just DE staff so probably not
tenthtechpriest: this is gorgeous. well, not our starter javelin it's beat up unupgraded garbage but the rest is gorgeous
FurbyGoneFubar: Did those scale birbs just multiply in mid air?
ThePov42: Everything has this ever so slight biological feel
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron, give me the lore dump. Is there enough for me to care about yet?
DandyGeek: Hover is very good, too
Laserbeaks_Fury: "I fixed it!"
stateofcomatose: F
TheMerricat: dang it connection, stop fucking up
Evochron13: be sure to kill a grabbit for extra voice lines :P
FinalShowFilms: Just flying around in the game is my favorite part of the game. Which sort of makes me sad when people say the flying is 'boring'
Kikazi: i'm a bit surprised they don't do the "wingman suit" thing, but eh, does look fun
BrindleBoar: yeah I find it difficult to imagine that Bioware hired a DE dev away just to do voicework
HesGotNoPants: *bang* work thingy
togashinaruta: You can think of it as FEMA messing up in LO - they were still around, but the identity of being savors in the nick of time was lost
Foxmar320: This mission breaks down all the types of missions you will do.
samuraitiger19: Huh I guess his voice just really reminds me of the ship computer in Warframe
Evochron13: hands up who else killed a grabbit?
Ukon_vasara: yeah, from what i gather the "How do" is phenomenal, while the "What do" or "Why do" is currently a bit lacking
aesir_blade: Ordis' voice is a lot higher pitched
angryoptimist: I dunno, I think Ordis has a little more character.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I wouldn't mind if Destiny had legit jetpacks like this. Imagine jetting around the Dreaming City....
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is the Heart of Rage still...going?
Stoffern: Also most of the Freelancers died, is my impression
wicker_knight: !uptime

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: so what is this "anthem of creation"
Telabu: accidentally a whole reactor? oh no
wicker_knight: soooo, Three Mile Island, basically
Rhynerd: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou an alien system for building planets.

DandyGeek: I think it's not clear in the intro, but the Heart of Rage basically nukes an entire city?
Kikazi: i agree with that assessment, but I wish they spent more tutorial time showing that as well as game mechanics before "two years later..." a tutorial mission
FurthestChunk55: so when do we get to punch out the asshole who got everybody killed
DaSunao: Did you know the US Nuclear Navy is self regulated?
LackingSanity_: I still don't think that opening made a great case for that, though. The stakes didn't feel very well communicated
wicker_knight: Three Mile Island and we follow basically-gordon-freeman
LairofLore: that seems like a fair read. this already looks more interesting than that first mission.
ninja_theory_ashrams: Yeah, easing people in is key, I mean in Halo 1 you don't startfighting until 3 minutes in
ProfBadger: It
Anubis169: o.O
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: are we talking nanomachines or space magic or what
MadAboutVideoGames: Its space magic
Rhynerd: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou made most of this planet but it might have also wiped out the creators?
ProfBadger: It's going to turn out responsible for everything.
FinalShowFilms: Space magic
samuraitiger19: Well 3 Mile island did make everyone turn their backs on nuclear power plants.... along with Cherynobel
tenthtechpriest: standard shootbang objective gaming
mrnobodycze: You are teacher?
ContingentCat: I hope it's not explicitly a nuclear mistake, most people already think nuclear power is way more dangerous than it is
Foxmar320: This world is still being created. Everytime the Anthem goes HAM new stuff pops into existence.
Evochron13: i don't think you do furthestchunk55 i haven't seen him 5 levels in
cmdrud87: It reminds me more of Tarkir's Dragon tempestst
RomanianMyEscutcheon: Something something Ancient Progenitor Race something something BioWare.
Rhynerd: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou probably nanomachines and psychic powers.
wicker_knight: @ContingentCat this isn't no. It's destiny style terraforming magic
Jezus38 subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 11 months, currently on a 11 month streak!

Rhynerd: Oh, by the way, there’s psykers in this game.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah I'm getting major Mass Effect vibes from this. Maybe it's the UI but that's really what I'm getting, a lot more than Destiny.
wicker_knight: but yes, nuclear power has problems but not the ones that keep it from being used
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's not like this mechanic isn't used a bit in Destiny
wicker_knight: 2GCU
Zhedor: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou well its the same studio
ProfBadger: okay, so that's intersting.
FinalShowFilms: As much as people like comparing the game to Destiny, it really doesn't feel like Destiny.
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 now THAT I can appreciate, and in-story reason for constantly changing environments and enemies
ProfBadger: locational cooling.
FurbyGoneFubar: So water cools you. Check.
Rockario: Oo, overheating mechanics?
DandyGeek: You can pet it with a grenade
tenthtechpriest: I feel this game is closer to warframe than destiny
RomanianMyEscutcheon: Standing in a circle while shooting things? In Destiny???
angryoptimist: Maybe they don't want to be petted.
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at

Miss_Katherine: O: O: O:
Gekyouryuu: it's so cute!
aitsu100: I want 10
EikoandMog: Give it a hard pet with the butt of your rifle.
SketchyDetails: V to pet grabbit
ZealousCrow: omg so adorable
Traion: I don't think power armour makes for good scritches
Chantzzzzz: oh, so that's where the dev budget went ha
Kikazi: wow
tenthtechpriest: shoot them
BrindleBoar: owl-faced peacock cats
Miss_Katherine: theres so many!!!
Zhedor: Have you come across detective Hops Mysteries, Cam?
Foxmar320: If you kill one Owen has a comment
wicker_knight: No Grabbit pets 0/10 literally unplayable
HazaTheRaider: noooo ccome back
fiftymcnasty: Because the programers didnt think that was important
MadAboutVideoGames: Pet it with rockets
accountmadeforants: This seems to be what Firefall was trying to be.
samuraitiger19: I mean with how advanced tech is today I see no reason why we wouldn't be able to have nuclear power and have it be safe.
gizmofreak1: i figured graham would be the one to play this game on stream because of how similar it is to Destiny
DaSunao: Scritch them with gun!
Tanglepixie: Some sort of moth-cat?
LairofLore: that creature is far more adorable than anything with mandibles should be
EvilBadman: Standing in a circle can be in multiple games and still be criticized, chat.
Swamplor: You want to scritch them. They clearly want you to scritch them. Why can't you scritch them?
EikoandMog: !birb
LRRbot: Peck your beak!
Shamthewow: you could scritch them with bullets
Ukon_vasara: 6.7/10, cant scritch the grabbits
samuraitiger19: Oh wait Japan...
fiftymcnasty: What is important is interecting with thing through your gun
wicker_knight: @gizmofreak1 Cam is the resident destiny scrub now
cuttlebranch subscribed with Twitch Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, cuttlebranch! (Today's storm count: 24)
Orchestrion: Huh they’re actually pretty big
RomanianMyEscutcheon: You can scritch them. Technically. With bullets.
KharadBanar: "Scritch" is not an available verb in this context.
1losttheGame: I want them to make a king grabbit Raid goes like greed in Diablo 3
DaSunao: @samuraitiger19 We do have safe mobile nuclear power
Myrdin90: a baloth is gonna attack?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if these people are trying to build an open-world shooter and didn't realize the first thing people would do was try to pet the bunnies and the second was try to shoot the bunnies then they should not be making an open-world game.
Foxmar320: It rolled over like my cats do
FurthestChunk55: but cameron, the only reason to interact with something is for the purposes of murder, this is a shooter, you must shoot
Rhynerd: Don’t scritch the grabbit with your vulelts.
Dix: Stairways to NOTHING
BrindleBoar: stairs that go nowhere, tho
samuraitiger19: @DaSunao Huh really?
fiftymcnasty: It would be a step well
Chantzzzzz: stepwell?
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou there is a line for shooting the bunnies
ThePerrBearr: I want to be Iron MAn
HazaTheRaider: we're running around poking a bunch of motion-sensors for space magic alien stuff happening? or is that the wrong thing
togashinaruta: Would buy scritch dlc
fiftymcnasty: but those stairs go nowhere
omdorastrix: A step well
ninja_theory_ashrams: i would say cool adjacent
samubtdp1985: is this like pubg or destiny
ProfBadger: I mean, it's visually impressive. but like, where's the context?
1losttheGame: Step Wells?
Rhynerd: Oh, wow.
DaSunao: @samuraitiger19 US Navy drives them around to random ports
Dix: Yep. "I'mma do some nonsensical shit"
Foxmar320: The Anthem decided there should be stairs and so there were stairs
TheMerricat: The Shapers made them with the Anthem?
Zhedor: There is a in universe radio drama starring a grabbit detective
SketchyDetails: "this is a thing that existed somewhere. I don't know what it is, but it existed. And Now theres one here"
Rhynerd: Yep.
accountmadeforants: That sounds like some neat lore I'd be on board with
ThePov42: The Anthem is procedurally generating the world. Try not to be in the are it is generating
niccus: "visually impressive but without context" is like 95% of video games
LairofLore: anthem knows stairs are needed to go up but not why or how they're supposed to work
TheNerdWonder: they don't appear to be functional steps, so must be decorative
Pal_Friendpatine: That’s what I think @themerricat
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: So we're talking Expanse-style protomolecule for the Anthem here? Why are we staying on this planet if it occasionally goes all Zendikar-Roil?
ContingentCat: *gestures* aliens
samuraitiger19: Oh right.. nuclear subs...
Myrdin90: so the shapers made that stuff? because its pretty i guess
FurbyGoneFubar: Yeah, carving enormous statues does not sound like something humans would do...? Uh...
Papperslappen: Is the anthem a procedural level generator run amok?
FinalShowFilms: The Anthem is a random number generator whose numbers are reality.
EJGRgunner: Coming in with no context at "Why can't I scritch them?" and now it sounds like Cam has turned into the "Aliens" guy from the history channel meme
Evochron13: so cam you have played multiple levels already then?
Kikazi: well, that would be interesting
Rhynerd: The shapers made planets with the anthem, but without the shaper the anthem just does whatever.
Zhedor: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou no mention of space travel so far
Kikazi: "flip gravity for a day"... I wonder what would happen...
FurthestChunk55: games need more context sensitive stuff that isn't just "press button to advance game"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ahahahah maybe the Anthem and stairs are like Rasputin and zippers, he's ALMOST figured out how they work but still missing a few critical details.
Gekyouryuu: "Welcome to the planet of procedurally generated nonsense!"
TheMerricat: I like the bunny hopping landing.
angryoptimist: Explosive Alien Birds, huh?
NovaGirl5: Thoughts on the digitigrade legs on all the Javelins, Cam?
HazaTheRaider: plinkaplinkaplinkaplink
DaSunao: @samuraitiger19 I mean, and nuclear carriers. Every last Sunday of the month I try to watch Japan protest the Reagan
Foxmar320: Yeah its fun but it has a lot of problems. Mostly quality of life stuff.
accountmadeforants: So how come these humans are fighting The Anthem?
TheMerricat: @angryoptimist if they breath fire, I'd have to assume they are going to explode once you pop them...
Traion: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou to me this feels like a human colony that failed and these are the people stranded here. Having lost all knowledge of how to operate the super tech over the generations
Erudite_Cynic: the Third Person perspective is a bit of a turnoff for me
FinalShowFilms: Because occasionally the random numbers the Anthem spits out are "You die now humans"
Rhynerd: As a freelancer, you keep shaper’s technology in check so it doesn’t do something like turn a city into a volcano.
Ukon_vasara: i would not be surprised if this turned out to be the game to play 2020
togashinaruta: The promise was that there would be random “storm” events like that
TehAmelie: hey, it's Bioware. any moment you're not turning inside out and falling through the world is a quality of life moment
NovaGirl5: @accountmadeforants Choatic random creation is bad for things that already exist
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh's a BWAAAHH
KharadBanar: I think this would be a great game in a vacuum where Destiny and so many other games didn't exist
Evochron13: i like anthem; it's gorgeous. but it emphasizes a social aspect very heavily which i was hoping i could find freelancers in the lrrdiscord but haven't had much luck yet
Rhynerd: Should I mention the Dominion?
KharadBanar: like if nobody heard of this concept before
Miss_Katherine: remember Dark Void?
tenthtechpriest: is it time for the worst part of every game? swimming?
Kikazi: I dislike how many games mess up the "quality of life stuff" initially, but at least they do typically fix that stuff eventually
ninja_theory_ashrams: do a barrel roll
aesir_blade: Is there an option for 6dof flight in the menu?
MadAboutVideoGames: Just find all three monoliths do alien sudoku and restat the anthem
samuraitiger19: @DaSunao Sounds a lot like Korea and their relationship with US bases atm.
Rhynerd: Or should the Dominion wait until they’re better introduced?
Zhedor: @TehAmelie Really? I've never actually had any bugs like that in any bioware game
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: damn the flight does look suuuuper cool I might need to get this just to fly around...but I really don't want to get it. I have enough to do with D2 and HZD. I don't need more to do!
Pal_Friendpatine: You can dodge in the air but that’s bout it
TehAmelie: i think only Descent ever had the guts to let you fly upside down
Galactic_pain: Absolutely beautiful
togashinaruta: Honestly- I thought it was good design for a game start
DaSunao: @samuraitiger19 Ooh, I had a shoe thrown at me in Korea
tvenn: do most games like this have the dinklebot led missions
FurthestChunk55: @Rhynerd i would suggest waiting until they're actually introduced
ZealousCrow: I'm curious to see whether this game will spawn a whole genre of flying shooters like this.
EvilBadman: @Zhedor But reddit posts the same glitch every other week, must be happening to everyone!
Rhynerd: @furthestchunk55 fair enough.
Myrdin90: they cant risk WHAT getting worse?! they havent explaned whqt it is
samuraitiger19: @DaSunao I'm sorry. Most of us Koreans aren't assholes. Believe me.
DandyGeek: It has a cluster of pain points for QoL and just general design for a loot/shoot, but the core play is solid and extremely fun with a squad
accountmadeforants: @NovaGirl5 I'm impressed they've survived this long at all.
NovaTiempo: Evening all o7
Zhedor: @EvilBadman ah, okay. I've only ever been to reddit once so I wouldn't know :D
Gekyouryuu: so many rings. is this Vryn?
notarealartist: Is this the tutorial?
EvilBadman: @Zhedor Kappa
FurthestChunk55: this looks real cool but, what is this
Pal_Friendpatine: @ukon_vasara it would be nice if the expansions of this game make it the thing to play. I am still waiting for the Bioware twist to show up
ninja_theory_ashrams: it is the will of unicron
FurthestChunk55: what is this area
wicker_knight: @Gekyouryuu might be the ruins of some sort of apocalypse on Vryn
NovaTiempo: So, Eru Illvatar?
Justherefortherewards: Hey this isnt destiny dayHmm
HazaTheRaider: ld thgatntbe a theme of seeking aswers in a purely random world?
DaSunao: @samuraitiger19 Japan is more angry about the Marine base in Okinawa as far as I've seen. They end up running over people while drunk every other year
KharadBanar: UwU what's this
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I'm super lookingforward to being able to afford this.
FurthestChunk55: like, Destiny pops up with a bit of text at least giving you the name of the place
Traion: This could be a cool thing to run in Numenera tbh
Justherefortherewards: lootin', shootin' cam dayHeart
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: What was that phenomenon at the beginning where one person seemed to be getting taken over by the Anthem somehow? Is it suggested to be sentient?
tenthtechpriest: the macguffin magic is on autopilot
wicker_knight: @FurthestChunk55 destiny implies that people KNOW what those names are, this game doesn't
FurthestChunk55: the only info we have on this place is that it's a ruin with a macguffin in it
PaxEtCorio: @Myrdin90 They can't risk the shaper energy getting worse and turning into a Cataclysm. They explained it both as Owen and set a precedent on the tutorial mission
FinalShowFilms: Cyphers (Pyshics) can occasionally 'hear' the Anthem if it's strong enough
PhoenixMelior: "barrel" roll. Sure
TehAmelie: the god of deus ex machina
FinalShowFilms: And it drives them mad.
Zhedor: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou the cyphers sort of connect to it like technomancers
accountmadeforants: Oh, that sounds very similar to the Ivory in Iconoclasts
AmoriLinguae: it's a or d first then ctrl
Foxmar320: Yeah I have not been able to get air dodging to work tbh
Justherefortherewards: who does the voice over? it sounds like Wheatley (Stephen Merchant, I believe?)
togashinaruta: I really love the design and story of the game - I’m just turned off/burned out on “dailies, ‘endgame’ and ‘raids’”
Myrdin90: @paxetcorio yea I understand whats happening now :)
Talin06: So it is Blame!
FurthestChunk55: the fuck are echoes
wicker_knight: Iconoclasts seems like a good jump-off point
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 do you eventually get to name your freelancer?
Kumakaori: *sees Cam playing; So this is some kind of Destiny 2 expansion then >>;? ;P :v.
Foxmar320: Kikazi no
wicker_knight: @FurthestChunk55 the little motes of free light
KharadBanar: echoes are an excuse to fly around some pretty areas
Kikazi: @Foxmar320 poop
FurthestChunk55: like, okay, "as you know" exposition is trash
Tiber727: @DaSunao Well, I'd say the real question is if the marines cause a higher crime rate than the general population.
MalBeam: our first mission is to prevent a cataclysm event? seems like mission creep for a rookie lancer.
FurthestChunk55: but surely we should be told what the things are
Kumakaori: sorry ,tht was probably only funny to me, and or, a joke already made <<;.
Justherefortherewards: it sure does LOOK cool, flying around and such
wicker_knight: @FurthestChunk55 the in-game characters don't know though
Zhedor: a cataclysm in anthem can be almost anything unnatural
flapjacksofwar: I dislike that everyone just tries to be a comedian in their dialogues
FurthestChunk55: oh so it's just space magic got it
samuraitiger19: I'll admit that this is a very beautiful game I just wish the story and gameplay were more than just.... average. Also I wish it didn't have EA's fingerprints all over it.
Anaerin: "Echoes" have been described to us as motes of loose Anthem energy. Beyond that, they don't understand it.
ninja_theory_ashrams: if the water is going up, is it still a waterfall?
Galactic_pain: Should
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: did we dunk all the balls?
stateofcomatose: I do appreciate that on each of the "go grab the thing and put it in another thing" quests you have had, you have always been able to find far more than you actually need to complete the quest
bigb00gi3: yeah, I'm not a fan of the level of quippiness
wicker_knight: @FurthestChunk55 weird godlike technomagic, yes
Ukon_vasara: sure, its just waterfalling up
EikoandMog: Oops, there goes gravity.
DaSunao: @tiber727 Well, they definitely cause a higher VTOL crashing into houses rate than the general population
Tiber727: @ninja_theory_ashrams Well, a waterrise doesn't have the same ring to it.

Asimech: How do the underwater controls differ from flight? I saw somebody complain about them after the VIP demo so I got curious.
wicker_knight: I do not like the lack of character animations, although I understand it given the apparent focus on graphical detail
ThePov42: If nothing else, I'm glad Stephen MErchant is getting more work
AmoriLinguae: the background chatter is a bit much
FinalShowFilms: The underwater controls are the same as the flight controls, just slightly sluggish because you're under water
MadAboutVideoGames: Why is it always a monster. Its never icecream. If its ransom it should be icecream sometimes
NovaTiempo: !teeth?
Zhedor: the underwater controls are very similar just less responsive as far as i've seen
Miss_Katherine: I mean, this is very mass effect
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Mostly what I'm getting from this is that Destiny needs jetpacks.
Ukon_vasara: tho, i suppose this anthem of creation makes for a real nice excuse for why theres a never ending supply of baddies to shoot / new future raids or w/e popping up
Kikazi: I'll give Owen's voice actor some real credit here, he's making it believable for me
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: like real jetpacks, not just the jump-jets
FinalShowFilms: Really, more games need mech suits
flapjacksofwar: -nods- Shepherd
Spacecarl: Not enough convenient chest high walls for Mass effect.
wicker_knight: @MadAboutVideoGames I mean, we flew by random Ellora Caves expy a while ago
MadAboutVideoGames: That thing was born just to imiatly die

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: a whole galaxy being reshaped by the Anthem? and you have to get it under control to survive?
Miss_Katherine: do we get to swap out arm parts like a mech game?
FurbyGoneFubar: Shouldn't you take *some* samples of that new thingy for someone to study?
Zhedor: andromeda was great
adamjford: I also enjoyed my time with Andromeda
Shadowsoflife: Same @flapjacksofwar
Namboto: the dialogue is also not... spectacular
FurthestChunk55: as far as i can tell, this game is "it would be nice if we got to do that"
NerdsHome: i did like andromeda
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou or just one world, with the "Anthem" effect serving as the justification for environment changes
KharadBanar: Controversial opinion: I don't care for boss fights and would prefer something like this
Taveena: Eyyy, I didn't miss all of the Camthem!
Myrdin90: @furbygonefubar they had a name for it, so its not new
omdorastrix: I mean, this way they can introduce them to you, keep them a challenge, and without them absolutely wrecking you on first contact...
ninja_theory_ashrams: IDK if fighting the boss monsters would have been "fun," but would have been more climatic and cathartic
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah flying around with the jetpacks looks ABSURDLY cool. Destiny needs jetpacks.
jadedcynic: we're 'fire brigade'
ProfBadger: okay, wso are we gonna bother marking that control point on the map in case someone else tries to tamper with it? no?
Miss_Katherine: xD
omdorastrix: Yes friend computer...
wicker_knight: This feels a lot like ReCore to me. I think I prefer the style and design of that
Zhedor: hi foxmar
Pal_Friendpatine: When you compare the two: the suits (the armor), the changing landscape (the different planets, the jumpy shooty floating it is easy to see how this was inspired by what they learned on ME: Andromeda
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: what up Foxmar
Ukon_vasara: hello Foxmar
angryoptimist: Hi Foxmar320!
aClonedPickle: hello foxmar three-twenty
TheArchitectX: Hey
TheMerricat: So what's the over/under on how soon Destiny gets jetpacks? :-)
Traion: Hey foxmar
NerdsHome: hi Foxmar!
EikoandMog: Hi Foxmar!
ContingentCat: hi foxmar
EchoBrozer subscribed with Twitch Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, EchoBrozer! (Today's storm count: 26)
Foxmar320: Yo
Anaerin: "Hello to Foxmar three twenty"
ninja_theory_ashrams: benginHi Foxmar
flapjacksofwar: Hiiiii
Stoffern: I think Soldier means you used guns, artillery is grenades...
Bladinus: Hi Foxmar320
ArcOfTheConclave: 320 blaze it!
Taveena: Executioner is melee focused, Artillery is gear-use focused, Soldier is ranged-weapon focused... I don't know what Sage is.
Laserbeaks_Fury: probably *how* you kill enemies: Weapons, melee, ordinance'
Roughly21Smurfs: Hullo Foxmar
chesul: that's sad.
ReydienOnline: I've heard there are inspiring mods like "+2% Sniper Ammo"
ChaosPainter: I hear many things abut Anthem, most are telling me not to buy it
holesinone178: does have legendary versions i think
Miss_Katherine: thats very sad
Taveena: The guns are boring, the comopnents and gear are fun.
KinoGami: this just makes me wish destiny let us play third person
TheMerricat: Soldier: Includes feats for weapon use, killing elite enemies, hitting weak points Executioner: Obtained through feats for using ultimate abilities, melee and killing legendary enemies Artillery: Includes feats tied to using gear and combos, as well as scoring multi-kills Sage: Obtained through feats for harvesting material nodes, reviving allies and collecting stuff
tenthtechpriest: soldier is for weapon use, executioner is for melee and ults, artillery is for gear abilities and combos, sage is revies and collecting junk
Pal_Friendpatine: Masterwork and Legendary are the top two levels
1losttheGame: There are legendaries
DerPilsner: thats just lazy
flapjacksofwar: Yellow class items = Best items?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I'm seriously digging the idea of flying around gorgeous landscapes with jetpacks. If you hide secrets and/or puzzles in those landscapes, you have my attention.
NovaTiempo: Thats one way to avoid power creep
ContingentCat: well that doesn't make for a very effective skinner box
FurthestChunk55: it's like diablo not having names on the cool swords you pick up
angryoptimist: That's got later-patch-overhaul written all over it.
angryoptimist: I just hope EA gives Bioware the chance.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: what's with the total lack of color inside the city though?
ChaoticObserver: Also seen some that roll random bonus stats and how it occasionally glitches (like it gives you 0 additional damage for 0 seconds).
ninja_theory_ashrams: this is the last time you see your face
jadedcynic: well, I wager it'll 'sag' and undersell....but within a year of launch, the devs will have caught up and added more cool content and things, and it'll be a great game...too late :P
Miss_Katherine: omg soooo many lesbian faces!
wicker_knight: I feel like this game decided to drop a lot of variability in favor of detail, and that seems like a mistake for a "loot"-type
CamelAttack: My take on Antehm is remember how Destiny released with lots of bad around a core good and it took them some 6 years to figure it out. This looks like that all over again. Except from EA/Bioware
adamjford: Wait, so you DO create your character and how it looks? Then why isn't Fort Tarsis third-person???
flapjacksofwar: Gimme Exotics with cool powers
TheMerricat: Do you actually get to see your face often in Anthem?
Zhedor: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou there's color, just wait
KharadBanar: how do you define a lesbian face @Miss_Katherine ?
DanielSolis81: I loved Polygon's video on character design and truck nutz.
FurthestChunk55: @Miss_Katherine excuse me?
Pal_Friendpatine: Except if your helmet opens, which happens from time to time @ninja_theory_ashrams
tenthtechpriest: also you can spend a lot of time picking and customizing how your pilot looks but nboody will EVER see it
KharadBanar: (genuinely curious)
FurthestChunk55: that seems at the best inappropriate
NovaGirl5: you do in cutscenes
B4rberblacksheep subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 17 months!
B4rberblacksheep: Time to see the brand new Destiny Killer
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, B4rberblacksheep! (Today's storm count: 27)
ChaosPainter: then this menu is pointless
TheMandrew: you can see your face in cutscenes
accountmadeforants: That makes Destiny seem... conscientious, almost. Which is impressive.
PaxEtCorio: You see your face in the game in MOST cutscenes if you stick to the default helmets
Rhynerd: Sometimes you see your face.
Pal_Friendpatine: I do kind of agree @camelattack
Taveena: If you choose a helmet model that opens up, in certain cutscenes, you see your character's face. I DID NOT KNOW THIS, and used the pre-order helmet, which does NOT open up.
NovaGirl5: You open your helmet in the field sometimes
Miss_Katherine: KharadBanar FurthestChunk55 just someone who has one of the social indicators of possible queerness
AmoriLinguae: I really like the middle 3 rows down
PaxEtCorio: If you don't have a default helmet, the visor doesn't open up
Namboto: are there sliders? Or just a bunch of presets?
Pal_Friendpatine: That’s why I wear the default helmet
Rhynerd: Only the default helmets open up?
KharadBanar: But what are those indicators? Is it facial expression?
Pal_Friendpatine: Presets @namboto
Asimech: Under that reasoning I would expect the Colossus or w/e the heaviest Javelin is, to give you a first person perspective.
DentedPockets: Is there no dance emote that has you look at your front?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It's a minor gripe, but I really don't like that all the mechs are called "javelins." The word "javelin" suggests a certain combat role/playstyle to me. It's not generic enough.
PaxEtCorio: And you also see your face if you have a default helmet during the suit-up animation in matchmaking
Miss_Katherine: KharadBanar I mean, I was mostly talkign about the dope as hell pixie cuts
KharadBanar: Oh sure
Taveena: And in some cutscenes ingame.
angryoptimist: As long as it's coming from a place of representation and not homophobia, I guess.
PaxEtCorio: So that's story cutscenes and matchmaking cutscenes
Taveena: but ONLY the default helmet.
ninja_theory_ashrams: were they all right handed parts on the left side of the head?
PaxEtCorio: Only the default helmet of each Javelin though
maybe_here: You see your face sometimes in cutscenes. It was a little odd because I'd forgotten what I looked like.
FurthestChunk55: so do we ever see anyone from the first mission?
Pal_Friendpatine: And during cutscenes
bigb00gi3: so many quips
Miss_Katherine: Yeah I was literally excited at being able to make a character I could think of as gy as hell xD
Xed_Regulus: She sounds a bit like TQ
Taveena: The Launch Bay.
angryoptimist: @Miss_Katherine SeemsGood
wicker_knight: okay, that also feels like a mistake
lazareth4twitch: hi
ninja_theory_ashrams: Fort tarsis is the 3d layout of a menu system
Supermaduro24: If I play this game on PC can I use my ps4 control to play this game
LairofLore: so it does the monster hunter thing like the gathering hub?
DandyGeek: Launch Bay was a late add based on pre-demo feedback that players would want to show off their swag
Namboto: man, I can't help but compare this to Warframe
lichen_subscribe: Just got here - is Cam a ventriloquist now?
angryoptimist: I'm always happy to see people happy.
MadAboutVideoGames: Im at the beging but the moment I met Owen my thought was He is so going to die
Zhedor: @Supermaduro24 you should be able to
lazareth4twitch: why do you get blueprints for below your level? what use is that?
ArcOfTheConclave: is there multiplayer?
TheMerricat: It's not Ironforge.
angryoptimist: And deep character customization is always good.
Alness49: This is nice and I don't want to see someone bunny hopping through it.
Rhynerd: But Freelancers are a team.
chesul: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou to be fair, Javelins are actually super versatile weapons.
wicker_knight: nehhhhh. I feel like that was a mistake in Destiny and it sounds like a mistake here
Ukon_vasara: yeah, you are The One, and so is every one else, like basically any other MMO
Miss_Katherine: Alness49 but they have literal bunny legs!
DentedPockets: It's sounding more and more like they made a single-player game and added multiplayer because games.
NovaGirl5: digitigrade legs
Shamthewow: Warframe has a similar power fantasy with multiplayer
Foxmar320: ArcOfTheConclave yes I will be joining Cam shortly
ChaosPainter: I wanted Anthem to be amazing, I wanted to see Bioware get a win after Andromeda and I feel this is not a win at all. I'm not mad I'm just disappointed and sad.
EvilBadman: The deep customization is more in the coloration/materials of your Javelins that the 'Lancer
omdorastrix: I wonder if this also combats the feeling of missing out when playing solo, by keeping it personal. Destiny as a comparison makes me feel like to get the most out of the game i NEED to play with others...
FurbyGoneFubar: What is wrong with her teeth?
Zhedor: @Ukon_vasara maybe in the newer ones, in the olden days you were just another schmuck ;)
Miss_Katherine: omdorastrix same
HazaTheRaider: is the dialogue audio low for anyone else? compaored to Cam and the sound
SK__Ren: Does it have the umlaut?
angryoptimist: I feel like Destiny and Warframe both do it well--you're not THE One, you're *A* One.
ninja_theory_ashrams: fort tarsis reminds me of that "Outer limits" episode where the lone surviving human is surrounded by holograms
LairofLore: maybe nick name?
djalternative: Zoey101
Gekyouryuu: what if it's a nickname?
lichen_subscribe: you've been mispronouncing "Joe"
wicker_knight: I mean, it's a nickname, yeah
tenthtechpriest: nope you're just super rude
pixelsatdawngaming: Doesn't Zoe have an umlaut over the o?
NovaTiempo: Whouldt that be Zoey > Zoe > Zo?
EvilBadman: Maybe people pronounce their name how they like?
TimeToFry: "Zoey? Nah, that's not short enough"
PaxEtCorio: @DentedPockets Not... necessarily. Think of it as something like Monster Hunter: World. The "base" is an instanced area, and there's just a lobby (Launch Bay) if you want
ArcOfTheConclave: Only one freelancer + multiplayer seems like a disconnect.
SK__Ren: Zooey
HazaTheRaider: get in my brain, thing
AmoriLinguae: Zoë
niccus: warframe wavers a tad between "a" and "the", enough that i wouldn't call it exemplary
Laserbeaks_Fury: Just jam it directly into your cerebral cortex
DanielSolis81: I knew a Zo once.
KharadBanar: @pixelsatdawngaming It's over the e, but it's not mandatory
1losttheGame: I think she is just shortening it
phorrestgaze: I had a friend who went by that pronunciation of Zoe back in Michigan
ContingentCat: well "should" is ehh, if she says my my name is pronounced ___ you don't argue
Namboto: see, when it comes to the "your
DentedPockets: @PaxEtCorio Ahh, I get it. So a reverse Guild Wars.
KharadBanar: Also it's technically not an umlaut
Zhedor: ah lot of the gripes people seem to have with this game can be traced back to EA giving multiplayer games to bioware, which has always been a single-player focused studio
Kikazi: I just met a new coworker whose name is "Anne", which I would normally pronounce "An" but she pronounces it "Annie"
TheMerricat: Look Aztecish
angryoptimist: LIke, sure you get wrapped up in Matter of Importance in Warstiny Destiframe, but there's lots of those happening at any given time--you just happened to be the Space Wizard/Space Ninja in the area on hand.
Kikazi: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
FurbyGoneFubar: Maybe Zoe had parents that wanted her name to be unique and special?
PaxEtCorio: @DentedPockets Hmm... Yeah, that's actually pretty close. SeemsGood

Mysticman89: there might be an argument that zoey is zoe with oomlauts and zoe no -y is without
Papperslappen: Maybe protagonist was bitten by a diphthong as a kid
Kikazi: yeah... I like Owen
pixelsatdawngaming: The facial animation on that guy is pretty great
ProfBadger: Ah yes, the constant need to plug people into the power source to 'use' it.
Miss_Katherine: Everyone is EMOTING SO HARD
FurthestChunk55: i kinda want to punch owen in the face
Dix: :D
Ukon_vasara: SeemsGood
MadAboutVideoGames: Stop gas lighting the other cyphers Owen
TimeToFry: 👍👍
Rockario: Owen is not doing anything to meet her half-way in this
Miss_Katherine: theres mod for Fallout 4 that runs up how big everyones expressions are, and it feels like this game ahs it on
wicker_knight: okay now I want to punch Owen in the face
flapjacksofwar: Outquip everyone!
Namboto: *"when you're the one" in an MMO, you need a good reason for the existence of the other players
sir_jack_DB: personal space
sir_jack_DB: jesus
mtvcdm: Can we put Owen through a table?
bigb00gi3: not until we hear his catchphrase
jonnykefka: There is some good character animation/motion capture here, pity it's being wasted on a living pile of garbage
Asimech: Personal space, dude. Also: Look up "bear's favour".
FurbyGoneFubar: I know that voice. Just checked and it's apparently T.J. Ramini playing Owen. Why do I know his voice?
flapjacksofwar: Shave his eyebrows
Myrdin90: i like this dork
DentedPockets: Send Owen out to get some coffee.
MadAboutVideoGames: I assume he dies
phorrestgaze: maybe she's got a rich private life. Maybe she's thinking about her bonsai garden when doing her menial tasks.
NovaGirl5: Owen's not that bad folks
Kramburger: "Do you ever feel like you were born in the wrong generation?"
Rhynerd: @madaboutvideogames want me to whisper you his fate?
SketchyDetails: the fort improves as the game progresses ala The Division home base
Taveena: I really like Owen, honestly.
pixelsatdawngaming: Seems like the most human guy we've seen yet
aClonedPickle: a lot bit, ideally
Dix: He has kind of a Joker-ish vibe
ChaosPainter: so basically Freelancers are Witchers of their time
tenthtechpriest: if you look down you'll see your character's legs are moving like they're jogging even though you don't move faster than a walk
Myrdin90: He reminds me of Soka from Avatar
Traion: I find it hard to believe that there is an organised government that lets the magic power armour be in the hands of mercs
FurthestChunk55: idk i find him a touch irritating
1losttheGame: i like owen.
wicker_knight: Oh I'm sure he's fine, yeah. Just, that was not a nice thing to do to the messenger lady
ReydienOnline: I mean, we were talking about "maybe we know them really well." that *IS* someone you've known really well for a long time, clearly
pixelsatdawngaming: @ChaosPainter When do we get to play Space Gwent then>?
ArcOfTheConclave: I wouldn't like working with Owen IRL.
Drakas: i liked owen
Bugberry: Freelancer/Specter/Warden/insert Bioware elite hero title
rf232: No, you don't understand, the public narative now is this game is bad so EVERYTHING in this game is the WORST thing imaginable
HazaTheRaider: the quirkiness of the dialogue is starting to remind me of the Avengers movies, and how every scene felt exhausting
ReydienOnline: so such camaraderie and proximity has grown over time
Tiber727: Eh, it's fine if he's a bit irratating to some. Better that a character have *character* than be perfect and boring.
angryoptimist: Protocol says you don't put people through tables until they're at least 3 touches irritating. Kappa
wicker_knight: @FurbyGoneFubar probably just whomever the voice director suggested as the baseline for the performance. FemFreelancer seems clearly inspired by Shepard, but it not Hale
flapjacksofwar: As an introvert, i dislike Owens in my space
martypunker: Why is there so much spacing between lines of dialogue?
GarQuithnik: that is in no way a private conversation
Dix: oh would you look at that.. a contract fell into our lap
MadAboutVideoGames: Can we romance the space bunnies?
mtvcdm: Why was Owen's voice really underwater there the instant we turned our back to him?
EvilBadman: @martypunker There's spacing?
Iraeda: "we need to speak in private"... this seems very.. open for private

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheAwkes! (Today's storm count: 29)
Rhynerd: It’s funny, while a friend of mine said “I wanna fuck owen” after discussion why they understood the lack of romance, here the Chat just wants to punch him.
wicker_knight: @mtvcdm probably some weirdness with the directional sound
martypunker: @EvilBadman I mean, the physical lines on the screen.
BlueChloroplast: @Iraeda yeaah
adamjford: I think Owen is cute
EvilBadman: @martypunker Legibility is a good thing?
Namboto: this scene could use some... editing? Blocking? Direction?
adamjford: I like him
FurbyGoneFubar: Come on, at least negotiate a *number* before taking the job!
TheMerricat: Why do I not trust blondie.
Rantling: He's cheeky, but enthusiastic. I like him
TheNerdWonder: even tassyn wanted to slap him
martypunker: @EvilBadman You can still read it without half an inch between lines surely?
Taveena: Yeah I like Owen a lot more than Tassyn.
djalternative: something with the mouth flaps and lip sync is off to me.
tenthtechpriest: but we haven't even negotiated a contract or signed any forms or anything!
sir_jack_DB: okay, *now* I have a sense of scale for the Javelins vs humans
Stoffern: Tassyn wants to slap everyone
Namboto: it just feels like "oh they're here now, and now they're talking at me, and hardly interacting with the environment"
Bugberry: @FurbyGoneFubar They aren't exactly picky
Asimech: While the animation quality on Owen is fine as far as I'm concerned, I don't care for the decision to have him emote so much.
EvilBadman: @martypunker I'm watching twitch on a TV from 8 feet away. Yes. I can read it and it's wonderful.
Bugberry: Truck Nuts
1losttheGame: i wish there was actual color and paint to use
mtvcdm: Yeah, there's something real weird going on with the sound on the voiceacting. If we're not looking right at the person and they're not right in front of us the sound gets weird.
TimeToFry: Truck Nuts
djalternative: Truck Nuts
Taveena: I mean, I think that's deliberate.
adamjford: Truck Nuts.
FurbyGoneFubar: So every freelancer has to have that physical build to fit inside it?
TheMerricat: We don't get to get a suit like old man Ahab in the intro video? dang it!
accountmadeforants: That was a great video.
TheArchitectX: That was extremely non-specific as to the mission and the payment. And who's hiring you.
HazaTheRaider: gotta head off for now, Cam, hope you have fun with this!
Rantling: I like everyone but the Sentinels, and they're just doing there job.
PaxEtCorio: I think not being able to change the silhouette is a deliberate - and correct - design choice.
noSmokeFire: thank you for mentioning the nuts so I didn't have to
wicker_knight: Yeah that, again, feels like a lack of animation and model variety in-game. Again, considering the texture detail, it seems like that's by far what was focused on
adamjford: @FurbyGoneFubar oh there's 3 other classes of Javelin that have different silhouettes. They mean within classes, I think
Zhedor: @TheMerricat you can, it's a different type, you get access to all 4 different ones
FurbyGoneFubar: Ok, thanks
Myrdin90: does anyone know if theres an upcoming expantion for Anthem?
1losttheGame: wait what menu is the paint in? i missed that
Rhynerd: There’s at least another cataclysm planned for Anthem.
flapjacksofwar: As a freelancer, you dont negotiate your fees very well haha
ChaoticObserver: @Myrdin90 I know there is a timeline for new things to come into the game starting next month, but none of it is an expansion.
FinalShowFilms: They have a plan for continual updates going forward
ChaosPainter: There is a well based suspicion that emotes were cut out as well as other gear
djalternative: There's only so much personality an new coat of pain can convey
djalternative: paint
PaxEtCorio: @LoadingReadyRun That's fair. Perhaps gating certain vanity drops gated on GM+ difficulties
FinalShowFilms: My level 1 Javelin looks just like my Level 20 Javelin.
Taveena: I think this is more comparable to Warframe in terms of its character design?
tenthtechpriest: the difference is just kind of a coat of paint and some textures
PaxEtCorio: Which... There will be vanity chests coming soon I think. Not sure if they'll be difficulty gated though
theinvisiblevoice: yeah, you get to go from an old suit to clean to new thru rep
pilz_753 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 23 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, pilz_753! (Today's storm count: 30)
SK__Ren: Rusty Javelin
Bugberry: Power Ranger colors
Ukon_vasara: yup, after a year in Warframe you probably have a neato cape, some bulking shoulder / chest / leg armor, maybe even a color palate
Pal_Friendpatine: Cosmetics are released as chests at the end of Strongholds starting in March. Play your daily, get your key, then go and play a stronghold to unlock one of four chests. Your teammates get what you unlock and vice versa. Around 100 items, no duplicates. Or so I’ve heard.
TimeToFry: Green and pink
Piratical_tendancies: Purple everywhere!
angryoptimist: @Taveena I'm not sure I agree.
Kikazi: "...Fade to Grey..."
KinoGami: i made mine yellow and purple
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: You get your Prestige Leviathan armor with its glowing highlights or Bergusian Night everything with layers of moving symbols, and you look rad AF.
Papperslappen: Team hot pink!
Namboto: to compare it to Warframe, the silhouette of your frame doesn't change too much unless you get a special skin, but they make up for that by having a lot of different frames to choose from
GarQuithnik: im digging the war machine style
Shamthewow: blue and grey is quite pretty
noSmokeFire: how many? 50?
omdorastrix: Set the stripes to neon-pink for a Retro-cyberpunk fibe
NovaGirl5: I paint my javelin in trans flag colours
Myrdin90: im so tiered of the big gray robot look
SketchyDetails: all og the look parts just bolt on to the same frame
Namboto: here's there's what, 4 javelins? 3?
Lagrangeismyhomie: purple rain, pur-ur-ple ray-yain
Tanglepixie: Pink, definitely.
angryoptimist: @Taveena Warframe lets you do a lot with your silouette--also, that whole organic look.
flapjacksofwar: Now equip ALL THE GUNS
coelopteryx: what if: vaporwave javelin. cyan, pink, orange, etc.
EvilBadman: @Namboto 4. those're the classes
KinoGami: "Juicy"
tenthtechpriest: I believe unlocking the actual cosmetic shop is a mission
Rhynerd: Your suit almost looks a Sentinel.
TehAmelie: "my other mech is an Eva"
Ukon_vasara: just turn them into Nascars?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: one on your butt that says "if you can read this you're flying too close"
ryuhimora: "Nice Butte"
EikoandMog: Robot suit Tramp stamp.
Lagrangeismyhomie: "DICKBUTT"
Alness49: "My other mech is a Dreadnaught"
MadAboutVideoGames: I want Nascar stile ads as decals
noSmokeFire: NASCAR style sponsors
Taveena: @angryoptimist While that's true, I think that's mostly because Warframe has the advantage of time and a less stupid release schedule.
Rhynerd: At least you can throw flares.
angryoptimist: This just makes me want an Armored Core MMO.
noSmokeFire: bus, Mad got there before me
flapjacksofwar: My other mech is Jehuty
tenthtechpriest: nope
noSmokeFire: how about a Javelin with "NASTY" across the butt
1losttheGame: you can't do that. i really want to.
omdorastrix: "Raid Ball"
ContingentCat: or like "thicc" in comic sans
BlueChloroplast: Upsidedown "If you can read this pull me out of the snow"
Ambitious_Sloth: A sticker with Calvin peeing
EvilBadman: Shield doesn't have customization currently, but there's been a ton of outcry for it
Dix: In before "send noods" jokes
ghostvalv: Creepy
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah if these Freelancers are so desperate for cash, how come none of them are wearing advertising??
Myrdin90: "RICH BITCH"
1losttheGame: i got an assalt rifle with +5 to shotgun (:
SketchyDetails: seriously. There is NO STAT SHEET. There is ono where to see how much armor and shields you have
flapjacksofwar: CABAL STRONG
angryoptimist: Oh, yeah--that's an oversight. Even back in 1997, the first Armored Core gave you a signle sheet view.
PaxEtCorio: A stat sheet would be so damn useful.
TheMerricat: dev console ^_^
Gekyouryuu: @MadAboutVideoGames @noSmokeFire you guys are reminding me of Tiger & Bunny, an anime about super heroes with corporate sponsors where their suits are COVERED in ads like that. for REAL things, too, like one guy in armor is sponsored by S.H. Figuarts, and one girl was sponsored by Pepsi
Pal_Friendpatine: Yeah right now you have to do the math yourself. But since I don’t know how the game applies the numbers I don’t know if my math is accurate
SketchyDetails: Theres no where to see your health pools and theres a bug that make sthe visial representation unreliable
FoxFyr: Ah, I didn’t realize this was BioWare, a lot of things make more sense now
PaxEtCorio: It was probably some guy just looking at database rows on his 2nd/3rd monitor LUL
Alness49: Destiny had a power level, which is blunt but tells you "This us better"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: even Destiny with its lack of numbers at least gives you bars!
Pal_Friendpatine: Right @sketchydetails The no armor numbers throws me
ghostvalv: ah the mass effect 2 experience
wicker_knight: also is that compounding? Is 5% on one and 5% on another equal to 10% or 10.25%?
noSmokeFire: @Gekyouryuu man, a Tiger & Bunny destiny-like would be CHOICE
TehAmelie: City of Heroes dealt with that for years. eventually they caved and let players see the stats that their stat mods were modifying. and then they shut down the game
angryoptimist: D A N K
Dix: s q u i s h
omdorastrix: *SHLORP*
Traion: So we aren't changing our javelin class?
noSmokeFire: get buffs based on fictional product placement :P
BlueChloroplast: uggh sports pads STANK
ryuhimora: noooooo
sir_jack_DB: UGH
SketchyDetails: Between missions my interceptor went from 3 armor pips to seven
sir_jack_DB: barf
Myrdin90: "I used to be an adventurer like you"

eye_h_bar: Oh nooo
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Honestly I think they missed a trick by not making the robots totally remote-controlled so they didn't have to be human-shaped.

Tanglepixie: Thank you for that image.
Papperslappen: Smells like old hockey gear
MadAboutVideoGames: Should have got the moisturizer wicking fabric from Zoe
Asimech: Sweaty? Sweat has grease in it. Run a few missions and you'd need to *wash* the dang thing to have any hope of it not being disgusting.
TheMerricat: WIcking fabric, your sweat is expelled as you fly... :-P

TehAmelie: oh, you can see your "power" rating. i guess that's the character sheet
Dix: There's no visual that you've actually sent a invite either? Yeesh
Beowulf_Bjornson: I feel a lot of issues people direct at Anthem are really issues of the Live Service model and Anthem has become the scapegoat for it. Which is fair.
angryoptimist: Ooh, pri-va-te, fancy!
noSmokeFire: rungle in the jumble
angryoptimist: Kappa
Kikazi: automatic cleaning system upon exit: fill completely with sterilizing gas, empty, fill with ozone, empty, fill with febreeze
Namboto: A T&B style MMO/destiny-like would be excellent; fill the void where City of Heroes used to be
Baldrash: What's on the docket for Talking Sim tonight? More Anthem?
Gekyouryuu: @Namboto I never got to play City of Heroes. people made the X-Men and it got taken down, from what I heard
wicker_knight: @Beowulf_Bjornson I think it's also a bit of "the distractions aren't there, so you notice" compared to things like Destiny where there's stuff like the Lore and plot to look at/complain over
Drakas: its more to do with origin
angryoptimist: @Kikazi One *would* think that autocleaner systems would be a thing by the time mech suits like this were a thing.
Zaraka00: This game just feels heartless to me somehow
MadAboutVideoGames: I hate that you cant free play on private
EvilBadman: gotta but a flesh suit on that bone prison
WonderfulGlory: That's what games are now
Rantling: Good Bones.
Grinogre: Your mic is a little low.
WonderfulGlory: At least AAA games
Meltalar: cameron, i feel they cut the Q&A and have normal paying players do their Q&A work
angryoptimist: They're very polished bones, at least.
noSmokeFire: Cameron "Needs More Bones" Lauder
Asimech: Owen's voice started just as Foxmar started moving so my head went "Foxmar's character is talking".
Kikazi: @angryoptimist one would *HOPE* auto cleaner systems were a thing by this point
Namboto: @Gekyouryuu I think it died a more natural death - I never played it much myself though, so don't take my word for it. It lasted for years though
Saeif: I hate that it's normal that games are released half complete like this
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: So far this game's only actual draw for me is the jetpack flight. That does look super rad. But now I just want Destiny to have jetpacks rather than to play this game.
TehAmelie: hmm, that new Warhammer 40K fleet game is also supposed to be fine in a year . we should make a list
tenmoexe: imo the flying is too slow for me
Rantling: Sorta like this game will actually be done in a year.
Gekyouryuu: so, Cam, you're saying it's like a cool action figure from the 80's, but the only story is in the commercials and character stat blurbs on the box for each figure?
ChaoticObserver: Which is another thing to me: is there really a negative for waiting 6 months for the inevitable 30 dollar sale of the game and maybe fix this stuff?
Kikazi: @angryoptimist ...but... we know better...
Beowulf_Bjornson: @wicker_knight I for one enjoyed Anthem's story and lore way more than Destiny 2's. I didn't like the silent protagonist approach of Destiny. I felt disconnected from the story
FinalShowFilms: Getting good at flying in Anthem is super rewarding
SketchyDetails: Matthias is the BEST character in the game
Pal_Friendpatine: Might be the best way to go @chaoticobserver
EvilBadman: @ChaoticObserver Not really, outside of FOMO
ChaoticObserver: Becuase it feels like that's the way to do it
Asimech: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I'm pretty much the same.

Bugberry: So basically Zendikar?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah it seems very Zendikar
KharadBanar: Cam has previously compared the Anthem to the Roil
wicker_knight: @Beowulf_Bjornson oh yeah. I don't mean to say that Destiny's story is great (disclosure: I think it's not, though the lore is good). I meant that it drew attention to itself in a way I don't think this story does
MadAboutVideoGames: That feeling when you get teleported from 10 feet behind
ArcOfTheConclave: Lex Luther: Solve my maze. lrrBEEJ
Kikazi: every time we talk about "the Anthem", I keep expecting a music que
Pal_Friendpatine: I love the random lightning strikes
Namboto: wait, they limit your flight time? That feels not good
ProfBadger: I... like warframe got rid of stamina almost immediately because it turns out it's jutst fun to do.
Gekyouryuu: @Bugberry sounds more like if Zendikar were colonized by the people who made the Halos in Halo, or the older races from Mass Effect
TimeToFry: I like that you can shoot the collectibles
TehAmelie: haha they could put a Superman 64 level in this and it'd be great because flying is fun
angryoptimist: @Kikazi One would certainly hope, but the state of engineering is kinda too disorganized. For stuff like that to be a reality, standardization has to be less like pull teeth and technology sharing needs to be de rigeur, I think.

KharadBanar: Wait, this isn't talking sim? Kappa
Beowulf_Bjornson: @wicker_knight Yep. Also, this came after Destiny, and people rightfully expect devs to learn from other's mistakes
warpspeed365: Same cam
EvilBadman: What happened: If a group member hit the next major area, and you're too far, you get tele'd to them, with a long load screen
Pal_Friendpatine: @namboto it adds an element of strategy to using the water elements of the map to keep flying farther. Infinite flying gets a little boring after a while
Asimech: "Casual way of spending time" is really high up in my "why I haven't quit Destiny 2 for good yet".
TehAmelie: a bridge too far for that guy
ContingentCat: F
angryoptimist: Booo, TehAmelie
wicker_knight: @Beowulf_Bjornson yeah. This feels like an expansion and improvement on, like Borderlands. The state of the art is well past that
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah being able to chill with friends in Destiny is pretty great

Kikazi: @angryoptimist as an engineer, I fully agree with you, but as a "business mind", I... well, you know as well as I do the odds of that "standardization" becoming more commonplace
ArcOfTheConclave: the flight does look fun
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: like "hey let's do Blind Well" "okay we'll chill and talk and every so often coordinate to focus down a big bad or try to pull something hilarious with our equipment hey look at this cool thing I can do"

Pal_Friendpatine: Ice is primer
SketchyDetails: The red icon above the heads is what you need to look for
Bugberry: I'm bitter at EA for what they did to Mass Effect, so I see myself maybe picking this up in a year when it's on sale.

Kramburger: Primer/Detonator fact Sheet:
Pal_Friendpatine: They are comboing
wicker_knight: yeah, UI is not great on this game
SketchyDetails: Thats an aoe detonator, its stronk
wicker_knight: well that's to harsh
ProfBadger: Mass effect didn't either, did it?
angryoptimist: @Kikazi It's true, but it'll have to happen eventually--bigger and bigger problems keep popping up that need engineering solutions at an increasing pace and we're really going to have a hard-requirement as a species at *some* point for reducing the stepping-on-toes of effort at cross-purposes and such.

Drakas: cam you need to talk about the crafting a bit maybe
Laserbeaks_Fury: Andromeda combos were very obvious though
MadAboutVideoGames: None knoe each javalin has its own detination. Ranger is single target, colosus is aoe, storm speads status
wicker_knight: are these people?
Traion: Okay I'll head to bed. Have fun Cameron, Foxmar, and Chat
angryoptimist: G'night Traion!
TheMerricat: night @Traion
Pal_Friendpatine: Comboing is very important in later difficulties
ContingentCat: @Traion g'night
Pal_Friendpatine: @wicker_knight the Scar are basically insects
wicker_knight: okay that's what I thought
FinalShowFilms: Yeah, it does
Zhedor: It mentions that when you float
angryoptimist: That thematically works, given the name.
ProfBadger: skeet shooting!
noSmokeFire: sorry, I'm having trouble with the accents + distortion: are the enemies called "scarves"??
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: a Wings of Sacred Dawn type boost?
angryoptimist: Storm = air element.
wicker_knight: okay, they're definitely-sentient-technologically-advanced bugs/things/people though
KaleWoamingford: ranger's melee is a primer, storm's melee is a detonator
Dix: And how ya kinda gotta just hang there when launching a nova bomb...
wicker_knight: @noSmokeFire Scars
Pal_Friendpatine: Interceptor melee is also a detonator
wicker_knight: which, is also kinda a weird name tbf
BlueChloroplast: ah so it is a stargate
TimeToFry: Which Javelin are you gonna go for Cam?
Drakas: its at points
FinalShowFilms: There is a tooltip for the Storm hovering bonus that pops up -when- you start hovering as a Storm. Not always though.
Pal_Friendpatine: And Interceptors get the aura effect if meleeing a character under a status effect
theinvisiblevoice: ranger melee primes, other javs detonate, yeah
SketchyDetails: Its not a distance. It's "Have you clears the last waypoint befor ethe next shooty place"
angryoptimist: I question whether they even needed to do that at all.
Myrdin90: this place is pretty
SK__Ren: Given the detail, it might be with memory managment to forcibly unload areas
MadAboutVideoGames: On your skills look in the upper right corner of the skill a star is detinator circle is primer
wicker_knight: huh. It must be unloading the space behind the player
TheMerricat: Their servers are too weak and the instancing can't handle more than 40 ft of landscaping?
Pal_Friendpatine: But your outside the mission boundary there
angryoptimist: I mean, you've got fast/nice traversal skills, right?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I feel like they missed a trick by not making the Javelins more animalistic. The weird legs seem to have different feet in different classes - like the ranger kinda has hooves - and I think they should have gone all-out with that. Makes sense if you're going to be out roaming in the wilds.
EvilBadman: the teleport's long as load screen is the worst
ReydienOnline: it seems to not be based on the other player's position, but on static loading areas

wicker_knight: @ReydienOnline oh, that's a good call
Plaicoson: this game looks super sweet
Asimech: Reminds me of a driving game where the catch up mechanic just teleports you ahead. I uninstalled it pretty quickly after I found out about it.
BlueChloroplast: oh I think it is Scars not Scarves
Drakas: you only get pulled forward when you nere the waypoints for the mission your own
wicker_knight: yeah it being based on particular areas makes sense
MercurialVox: yeah I concur Reydien, I think once leader crosses a load barrier it gives the party a set time to also pass it
mjihde: Oh hey, Anthem. How's it going?
LackingSanity_: I think the Waypoint crew said it feels like this game made some significant design changes late in development, which is why there's some good stuff with the core combat/flight/setting, but a lot of the stuff surrounding it (mission design, direct story cutscenes, etc) feels a bit rushed
togashinaruta: Minimum RAM limits, I bet
jmatthew155: I like this game
Dhaunayne: i got frost bite yesterday, for the second time in my life ever. i was dumb and paid for it.
NovaTiempo: Is your face numb today Cameron?
angryoptimist: @ReydienOnline Interesting--think it might be related to this not really being Bioware's wheelhouse? Even the Mass Effect multiplayer they didn't do themselves, so instancing and loading/unloading for multiple players they might need to get their eye in a bit, yet.
MrSVCD: How was it that had the axe throwing thingie they went to in LRL?
Officinalis: Hey Cam! Hay chat!
wicker_knight: what I'm hearing also implies to me that this game was like "okay, we just need 3-6 more months of dev" "it ships tomorrow" "what?"
angryoptimist: ^
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I do like the HUD with your allies' health & shield. That is definitely somethign they could add to Derpstiny, especially in raids.
Baldrash: So silly question for those who have played this, is there a way to spec melee?
Pal_Friendpatine: @foxmar320 Prime with ice, Detonate with lightning
angryoptimist: @wicker_knight I would very nearly put money on that being the case--and I *never* make bets.
ProfBadger: no groundpound?
Rhynerd: @baldrash there’s a javelin for melee
Stoffern: Baldrash one of the other suit types is "the melee suit"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: okay, so Destiny needs jetpacks and also allies on HUD. That's what I've learned so far from this game.
Baldrash: @Rhynerd @Stoffern Rad.
Pal_Friendpatine: Oh got ya @foxmar320 thanks
TehAmelie: Bioware's idea of storytelling is still mainly "more is better" eh
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah from the word go the Cabal are clearly a big, organized, conquering force. Then you run into the Fallen as scavengers out in the wilderness. Then you hit the Vex as the mysterious inhabitants of a mysterious world that shouldn't exist.
Laserbeaks_Fury: so yes: We wanna know how you got those Scars Kappa
Dix: Bioware hecked up worldbuilding? Wat
reptileviking: It hink the art design for this game is competent but boring
EikoandMog: The Vex is the ones that I don't really understand.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you encounter each faction in a context that calls out its central theme.
wicker_knight: yeah I thought the scars were, like, actual human scavengers
reptileviking: Nothing stands out at all
wicker_knight: for a while
KharadBanar: Sure are weapon parts in there
Stoffern: Dix all the world building is in a mass effect style codex, in text form
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh so they're the geth, but bugs?
TimeToFry: @EikoandMog Time travelling computers trying to achieve their perfect fusion
the_gentleman_crow: I like how this plays just magic comes first
BlueChloroplast: Slime mold humans!
I_Am_Clockwork: oh they are Spidersmen
LackingSanity_: @Dix I think it's the opposite, the world building has been done, but very little of it is communicated well
noSmokeFire: so they're Man-o-wars?
TehAmelie: oh right, Spiders-Man, that's who i was missing in Spider-verse
ArcOfTheConclave: So that's why they're bipedal
Taveena: They're trying to make their own javelins.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wasn't that the plot to "Mimic"
reptileviking: It is neat but I wish it stood out more
wicker_knight: huh
Dix: LackingSanity_ so... Destiny 1 Grimoire
ProfBadger: you could let them combine to form superbeings.
wicker_knight: also having, like, deformation and reformation visually would be nice
ProfBadger: bigger humans!
ProfBadger: humans prime
TehAmelie: Spiders-Man is a colony of mutant super-spiders that thinks it is Peter Parker. i love comic books
wicker_knight: and, like, having htem imitate some of the animal-things the anthem creates
the_gentleman_crow: Hit their alpha?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah what if when you hurt or blew apart several scars, the remnants might join together into one big one?
ArcOfTheConclave: maybe have aoe attacks hit multiple times?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that would be interesting from a tactical perspective.
Laserbeaks_Fury: The Missile Barrage ultimate is sooo satisfying
cfpreston: or having little bug things fly off instead of blood
ChaosPainter: loot after the hive
FurbyGoneFubar: I like how having enemies inside the objective area slows things down, but setting off explosives in the area is no problem at all... Ah, video game logic.
ritchards: So, Cam... yeah or nay so far?
FinalShowFilms: They do actually have bugs fly out of them instead of blood
LetsConsider: Do we know that they are a colonial organism in the sense that they are still seperate?
FinalShowFilms: When you headshot them you see bunch of black insects go flying
Taveena: It's hard to see but the yellow numbers, like in destiny, are headshots. The headshot areas also flash.
wicker_knight: in the sense that you clearly identify them in poor light, yes you are
I_Am_Clockwork: oblong cylinders
the_gentleman_crow: Precision damage is just larger damage crit is a multiplier I assume
I_Am_Clockwork: oblong cylinders as far as the eye can see
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I'm having a similar problem with this game that I did with Gears of War, where I constantly shot my teammates because they were indistinguishable from the enemies.
MalBeam: the enemy silhouettes has been a recurring criticism in the discourse
banachspacebar: "Some of them are green, some of them are red" which is like, the most notable example of how *not* to distinguish things
TimeToFry: Does anyone in chat know what video Cam is talking about?
Earthenone: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 4:20 PM
LetsConsider: Could the things we fight be the drones of whatever organism is the center? Like ants or bees?
ayirbudd: whats up everyone! how goes the antheming

Laserbeaks_Fury: Man, I *really* miss mailboxing the shield Cerberus grunts
reptileviking: Truck nuts!
Earthenone: how goes the new hottness?
wicker_knight: @TimeToFry I think the Polygon review?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: mailboxing
Dix: Oh those were great
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ?
BlueChloroplast: mailboxing?
FinalShowFilms: Shooting them through the eye slot
Dix: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Hitting the sheld guys throug their eyeslot
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh XD
BlueChloroplast: huh
Laserbeaks_Fury: The sheild had little slit you could shoot through, like a mailslot
ProfBadger: cerberus shield guys had a slot, shooting through it was a headshot
I_Am_Clockwork: I am super not loving the gunplay so far :P
wicker_knight: foxbye?
KharadBanar: There are many things wrong with ME3, but it had the best combat system out of the Mass Effect games
TehAmelie: i never even tried that. always jsut blew them up with magic
corpocracy: Protect the FoxMar
the_gentleman_crow: My fave javelin is interceptor
ArcOfTheConclave: That's a nice way to do crits
SketchyDetails: Blastback pistol is BAE
djalternative: It really doesn't feel like there was any strong artistic direction on this. It feels very paint by numbers with nothing to differentiate it.
yallz: red for the pistols, blue for the jetpack - classic izzet build
SketchyDetails: You can fire or ice grenades
I_Am_Clockwork: see, I feel like Nobody in destiny would say the line "I don't care what its name is" Everyon in that setting is super into their own lore
SketchyDetails: Hey cam, have you discovered what the Scars are?
MalBeam: the npc callouts sound almost like the fake teamchat they do for e3 demos
MadAboutVideoGames: Ranger has fire grenade
Laserbeaks_Fury: Feast or Famine
the_gentleman_crow: I thought ranger did have a primer
wicker_knight: yeah hte lack of a "potion" mechanic seems like a mistake
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Clockwork you clearly never heard Zavala sigh and call over the Tower PA "Fireteam...'The Bad Guys Don't Care What We Call Ourselves So Why Should We', report to the VAnguard."
Pal_Friendpatine: Imagine if this whole thing turns out to be how the Reapers get started
mjihde: To be fair that's a problem in a lot of games. Wonder if there's a healing item or something
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does this game still use the thing where yellow bars are weak to Incinerate?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: uhm is that a Thwomp from Mario or something
I_Am_Clockwork: ok, now that I get a closer look at big guy, I do like the clunky mech design
KharadBanar: That's a heckin chonker
wicker_knight: @mjihde true, but still a mistake here. Seems like it would have been a good candidate for having regenerating health/shield only, similar to destiny
I_Am_Clockwork: but doesn't really scream "bug person" to me?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: are those pants? Did the Scar figure out pants before they figured out arms?
the_gentleman_crow: I find ranger to be ok
girlpainting: granadeheaven
mjihde: Mm, fair
MadAboutVideoGames: Yes yelow bars are weak to fire and acid ble to lightning
TimeToFry: Headshot
wicker_knight: wait, why are you wearing a breathing mask but also a loose sleeveless shirt?
KaleWoamingford: I like the ranger a lot, but that's because there's a masterwork assault riffle that can prime enemies by setting them on fire
TehAmelie: they need clothes to pull of their "that's no man, that's three trillion scars in an overcoat" bits
Taveena: Yellow bar is also weak to cold
Pal_Friendpatine: @wicker_knight @mjihde during a fight only shields recharge
Laserbeaks_Fury: Weak to cold, or does it negate the armor bonues
Iraeda: so mass effect style yellow armour blue shields?
reptileviking: At least unsinc them!
FinalShowFilms: I have a Storm build that never fires their gun at this point.
SketchyDetails: yellow par is suuuuper weak to armor penetrating abilites :D
FinalShowFilms: Just throws fire and lighting around.
wicker_knight: @Pal_Friendpatine yeah, and I think that without a potion mechanic that's a mistake
TimeToFry: Which Javelin are you going to main?
wicker_knight: I'm assuming there's a healer support class as well
djalternative: I wish the scars were more like Spiders Man from Marvel
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: this is a surprisingly long loot screen
mjihde: @Pal_Friendpatine seems fairly standard, honestly. Just must not quite feel right this time
Laserbeaks_Fury: I couldn't say no to triple jump
1losttheGame: wtf, you cant go into freeplay mode in private. WHY.
1losttheGame: or solo at least.
SketchyDetails: I am maining interceptor because I like stabbity
Taveena: I main Colossus, and I love it
Asimech: According to some people Storm works well with Storm.
FinalShowFilms: Colossus is a lot of fu n
Pal_Friendpatine: Enemies drop the little health pickups if that helps @wicker_knight @mjihde
FinalShowFilms: Colossus are good partners for storms.
TimeToFry: I want to like Interceptor, but... That butt...
the_gentleman_crow: I main interceptor
MadAboutVideoGames: As ranger your combos are single target only so they are great sigle target damage
Zhedor: Main Storm, because more hovering! :D
Asimech: (According to people complaining about the VIP demo balance, to be fair.)
GarQuithnik: storm works best with 0 mana spells
Prophetx05: I'm enjoying maining an Interceptor
FinalShowFilms: Colossus are the tank, and can taunt enemies into attacking them to draw them away from the Storm
TehAmelie: why not see which one looks coolest?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Interceptor looks like the one that makes the most use of zipping around in the air, which inclines me towards it at the moment (if I were to play this).
Taveena: Colossus is like playing a Titan with ten times as much healht
Dix: I'm sorry what
NovaTiempo: um.,
Pteraspidomorphi: Ooooh.
JosephDeath: Dammit Cam

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I did like the armor/shield/bionic rock-paper-scissors combat mechanics in ME3. They added complexity to your tactics but were still simple enough to visually indicate and read in t eh middle of combat.
Laserbeaks_Fury: gotcha
Pal_Friendpatine: Devastator sniper rifle with slow reload but explosive rounds is very popular
TimeToFry: Your primer did fire stuff right
Salty_Paul: It's actually 50%/25% @BronzeKnight. Also, shields actually take reduced damage from fire and acid. Armour is the opposite.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, FelineFamilyGaming! (Today's storm count: 41)
Drakas: i like my 7 shot dead eye
KaleWoamingford: the ranger's melee is a primer, the game never directly tells you this, but it makes having two detonator skills viable
1losttheGame: oh good, anthem just hard locked my ps4
I_Am_Clockwork: yeah setup/payoff gameplay tends to be very rewarding imo
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: they really should have taken the animalistic look for the mechs and run with it.
TimeToFry: SeemsGood
aClonedPickle: yeah that's basically storm
Tanglepixie: Oh I used to love doing that.
Asimech: From what I've heard Storm is the "self-combo" suit.
FinalShowFilms: All of the suits have the ability to self-combo
FinalShowFilms: Storm are just really good at it
BlueChloroplast: I liked paralyzing enemies then firestorming in Dragon Age Origin with the mage
Dhaunayne: en tassadar adun
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: go for a bear/gorilla look for the Colossus, something almost insectile for the Storm, a hawk/falcon look for the Interceptor. Could have been really cool.
Asimech: @FinalShowFilms And that by itself explains their popularity.
decimage_: Storm is great for trolling , not so good for taking down solo bosses, elites,etc.
Pal_Friendpatine: Now that you mention it @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou that could have been a heck of a thing. And have the player be a cypher that controls the suit. But I guess that feels less dangerous to the player because you are not in the suit. But if your are connected to the character by your mind then...
HondoTrigger: coffee sludge!
Meltalar: i used to play world of warcraft by looking at kneecaps!
Ukon_vasara: yeah, i remember DA2 where i made areal heavy control mage, all earth and gravity
ArcOfTheConclave: #plot
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wait, weren't we at Heart of Rage?
Animekitty93: And that's why I swirl my drink so it doesn't settle as much while I drink
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: even if they still had the human in the suit, they could have gone a lot harder with the animal look.
Evochron13: this is the pre-quel to it laserbeaks_fury

Pal_Friendpatine: True true @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou
djalternative: Why should I care?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if you're going to be tussling with primal forces of creation, you could do worse than having your mech suits look like appropriately archetypical animals.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: A truly bearlike Colossus suit would be rad AF
noSmokeFire: her legion of dong?
ThePerrBearr: it's a backstory, why would you fighht?
Baldrash: Yay player agency!
TimeToFry: Who needs guns, right
Evochron13: because immersive story telling perrbear
djalternative: A Bear-Colossus would be great.
TehAmelie: those guys that weigh like three times as much as the others should not fly exactly like them, immersion ruined
coelopteryx: the inflection on cam talking about how they're Attacking Our Bros reminded me of full life consequences
noSmokeFire: is there a lore video to explain why nobody has helmet over their face?
ThePerrBearr: never played wow
Vyous: This would be a group pick up raid thing
MadAboutVideoGames: That guys face is so punchable
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: or what if you went for the jet fighter look? Airplanes have radically different looks based on combat role. What if the Colossus had an A-10 look while the Interceptor was based on an F-16
Zhedor: i Hate wow with a passion, so i automatically approve of anthem doing it differently
reptileviking: It's also just way cooler than anything ingame
1losttheGame: like the end of halo reach? that was so cool
Dix: WoW started that in Wrath of the Lichking with the whole gate battlescene?
Worldbuild: You know, Halo Reach
Ukon_vasara: thats like the DA2 tutorial, your first fight is you were overpowered af Because it was the storyteller embellishing
TehAmelie: now i'm picturing WoW like the part in Night in the Woods where Mae interrupts grandpa's story to have him jump of a cliff
djalternative: or just, when one of the disposable characters dies, give me a different one
Mangledpixel: this sure is a great trailer for the game that you already bought
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Destiny would have come up with some excuse to either pop you into the past (like simulated Mercury) or have you inhabiting someone else for whatever reason.
WeedenProject: The Halo: Reach ending was fantastic :)
NovaTiempo: Thats clearly an Arm-y grunt
Rhynerd: Note; you don’t actually want to meet one of those things.
omdorastrix: Groot?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you always knew how Reach was going to end
the_gentleman_crow: The only one who lives is jun
TimeToFry: Who's that bald guy, why is he the leader and not the badass gold robed guy
reptileviking: Words words words
Earthenone: they said the name of the game!
Taveena: Nothing good ever came out of a box.
Stoffern: Its a giant USB dongle
TehAmelie: that novelty control pad is rad
wicker_knight: espescially when weird robo-tuhtankhaman watches
CamelAttack: That's why it's Pandora's Box?
MadAboutVideoGames: That guys plot armor stopped those bulets
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: nothing good ever came out of a box that's clearly the Ark of the Covenant from Indiana Jones too
ContingentCat: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: box text
girlpainting: loot box fail ^^
Aenir798: Man this was a pretty nice movie.
djalternative: Well, not by him anyway. I'm sure Protag will control the anthem by the end
TimeToFry: And we're back
1losttheGame: "drivers non-compatible, system crash"
omdorastrix: He did not safely remove hardware
FurbyGoneFubar: She looks *so* unimpressed
Earthenone: !card heart of rage
LRRbot: Can't find any card by that name
BlueChloroplast: I mean not everything if we never heard of it
Earthenone: must be a metal band
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: why is this man staring into the middle distance and reciting a story everyone in this city supposedly knows already
Bladinus: lol @Earthenone
BlueChloroplast: I feel like I've just been bombarded with words and have no connection to anything yet
hawkfalcon8: hey Cam! heard you got down and dirty with Rin on Dice Friends ;)
Rhynerd: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou it’s kind of his job to recite and record stories?
banachspacebar: THE ENCLAVE... wait, wrong game
LathosTiran: you retell the story to not forget the story
Asimech: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Look, he's just lonely.
LathosTiran: "you could make a religion out of this"
Rhynerd: He’s like a bard.
Diabore: nice cutscene there, be a shame if some gameplay got in the way
FinalShowFilms: It's all the same store, just different access points.
I_Am_Clockwork: interesting, the player character is voiced
blessedexchequer: you access both from both
FinalShowFilms: You can also access the store -without- going to the store.
ArcOfTheConclave: Fashon!
I_Am_Clockwork: you don't see that very often in this sort of game
mjihde: I kinda like that actually. Having to walk between a thousand shopkeepers is annoying, but having one guy sell everything is still silly
FinalShowFilms: If you open the map you can tab over to the 'Featured' store
17 raiders from TheManaLeek have joined !
FinalShowFilms: So you don't even need to talk to them.
the_gentleman_crow: Why are they that close then I get if they are on different parts of the city
I_Am_Clockwork: also, hi raiders :)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the more I think about it the more I really like the idea of a more animal look to the Anthem mechs. If you're tussling with primal forces of creation in lush, unsettled areas, it seems obvious to go with a more animal look. Like HZD. But instead they all look like people with a couple extra bits glued on.
Earthenone: games should just have a toggle with any given level, "would you like to play it or watch it"
Rhynerd: Yeah, I can’t think of a good sewer level.
TheManaLeek: theman20Leek theman20Leek theman20Leek
NovaTiempo: Greetings o/
I_Am_Clockwork: it seems strictly medium
Worldbuild: Huzzah! Raiders! lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
axare123 is gifting 5 Tier 1 Subs to LoadingReadyRun's community! They've gifted a total of 10 in the channel!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @Earthenone I appreciated that the Deus Ex games had "story mode" difficulty for that
axare123 gifted a Tier 1 sub to ShadowAce0!
axare123 gifted a Tier 1 sub to KinoGami!
axare123 gifted a Tier 1 sub to cynimo!
axare123 gifted a Tier 1 sub to SuperformanceS1!
frostfeuer: Its alright to start, but gets.... less good?
axare123 gifted a Tier 1 sub to OmniWyvern!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for the gifts, axare123! Welcome to shadowace0, kinogami, cynimo, superformances1, and omniwyvern! (Today's storm count: 47)
RvLeshrac: "This is fine" is a good description of Anthem.
SquareDotCube: It's visually awesome, that's the problem
frostfeuer: I dropped after I hit the grind wall of the tombs personally
Ukon_vasara: it iight
haybalebarn: Is it more or less fine than D2?
Ukon_vasara: its a thing that exists
FinalShowFilms: There have been a lot of people performatively over-reacting to it in hot takes.
TheMandrew: i think it's awesome...:(
SquareDotCube: all the visuals, and for what?
Meltalar: it seems fine
RvLeshrac: haybalebarn: It is D3 before The Update
scarygaryp: That’s a bummer I was hoping it was better
Asimech: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou It would also have given this game a unique aesthetic in comparison to D2's and Warframe's armour.
I_Am_Clockwork: it def. doesn't seem like the kind of game I'd want to sink Hundreds of Hours into like it wants me to
wicker_knight: I mean, i will say that the texture detail is beautiful
snake12341: I wish this game was awesome
Meltalar: but has issues
EvilBadman: @TheMandrew Nothing wrong with that. Enjoy what you like. :)
frostfeuer: I would say less than current D2, and less than D1 launch
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah the detail in the environment design is insane
wicker_knight: I kind of feel like everything else suffered for that though
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @Asimech yeah, it would have separated it from the more cybernetic looks
Anaerin: Regulators? Is Warren G going to show up?
pimiento: grittee?
Dhaunayne: grit is the best kind of coffee
RvLeshrac: It is hard to compare it to Destiny, because my experience with Destiny is the game trying as hard as possible to get me to NOT play it.
angryoptimist: Celebrated mascot Gritty?
wicker_knight: yeah, I'm curious what people say about it in 6-12 months
TehAmelie: maybe that's how Rooster Cogburn gained his "true grit"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the layout & gameplay so far make me think a lot more of Mass Effect than Destiny. Which makes sense.
ThePerrBearr: how is the single player of this game?
frostfeuer: I want to like this game. I really want to
angryoptimist: So, you'll be sticking with Destiny 2, then?
axare123: they rushed the story and missions a bit in development...
djalternative: Make a Gritty-Colossus BioWare
NovaTiempo: So is this a case of "hope they had the other 50% not ready for lauch day"?
frostfeuer: But I'd stick with Destiny 2 and starting division 2 because they seem they learned from division 1 which is a suprise in looter shooters
RvLeshrac: There are many bad design decisions, like just skipping all of the story while you load in during multiplayer missions, and not allowing you to repeat them.
haybalebarn: When I tried the demo for like an hour, the UI made it feel nearly completely unplayable
maybe_here: On keyboard it's 'J' I believe
FinalShowFilms: If you hit J you can open the journal menu
Dix: Bioware and UI.... reminds me of how they TOTALLY hecked up ME1 control schema
Evandill: Yeah that's kind of the problem, like this is a decent game, and will probebaly be super cool in like 3 months, but like.. D2 already went through the process of taking time to get good, and it's good now.
wicker_knight: yeah, that's gorgeous
Prophetx05: even on consoles the ui is nearly impenetrable
Anaerin: Bioware sure know how to make a pretty game.
Evandill: Like that's pretty A.F.
frostfeuer: Its gorgous
Iraeda: I must admit Anthem is absolutly gorgeous
FinalShowFilms: I mean, every time you get a journal entry it indicates the J hotkey.
ThePov42: Their concept artists deserve awards
wicker_knight: but, this isn't No-Man's Sky
the_gentleman_crow: I love those quests where u already have the stuff u immediately finish it
wicker_knight: it's Borderlands
pimiento: you got a purdy environmental rendering
El_Funko: I think even the most scathing reviews still give the game cred for looking really nice
the_gentleman_crow: They released apex too soon it really hurt anthem
Anaerin: I mean, when they got Frostbite and built DA:I on it, it was jaw-dropping.
I_Am_Clockwork: Andromeda had some similar issues. Beautiful landscapes that held..... nothing of interest

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, WonderfulGlory! (Today's storm count: 49)
RvLeshrac: The good news, I guess, is that there's nothing wrong with the core game.
El_Funko: Maybe with a slight lack of area diversity, could maybe have used some vastly different biomes
FinalShowFilms: And by invisible walls you mean a blinding wind that makes you think you're going to die
Anaerin: I_Am_Clockwork: Andromeda has huge problems. Like originally going to have procedurally generated worlds.
frostfeuer: Agreed with the biomes
RvLeshrac: Anthem is not *fundamentally* broken.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does the tactic where you dive to cool off and then level out to extend fly distance work?
djalternative: The game looks good but I've yet to see anything that looks interesting.
TimeToFry: Does sprinting cause overheating
FinalShowFilms: Yes it does, Laserbeaks
Dix: See also: The Halo Ring
mjihde: I wish they went full in on flying. Instead it's a land based game in which you can fly for a bit.
El_Funko: Yeah, what they have is super prettyu
RvLeshrac: Laserbeaks_Fury: You build heat much faster rising than you lose it diving.
EsperDerek1: Overheating while flying seems a little silly when you're using it to travel across the map.
El_Funko: I just would have liked.. more pretties to appreciate
TehAmelie: it's like a really good texture filter on an Amplified type Minecraft map
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: aw pterodactyls! Let's be friends~
RvLeshrac: Not allowing you to fly forever outside of combat is also a problem.
wicker_knight: @EsperDerek1 almost certainly it hides the background loading so that the player doesn't outrun the loaded map
El_Funko: I think wanting more is a fair criticism
frostfeuer: There are a lot of core issues with the game that... needs a lot of work to close the gaps. This is especially noticeable with end game loot affixes. I can see it getting there, but by the time it does there are other games to play
ContingentCat: and have shifting landscapes, maybe I'm missing something if the anthem just creates stuff I don't see a reason why next thursday or w/e there's a mountain where there was a canyon
Erudite_Cynic: was that a Ahhh Real monster Reference?
SquareDotCube: Are you saying that Anthem needs more anime?
I_Am_Clockwork: @Anaerin yeah. I am starting to get sick of games leaning on Precedural Gen. for single player content, because invariably they use it as a base for a system, rather than to fill in spaces between well crafted set pieces
the_gentleman_crow: Play storm
El_Funko: Yeah, the flying is the best part of the game and I wanted it to be a bigger part. Proper air combat would be rad as hell
TimeToFry: Play Colossus!
the_gentleman_crow: U got clue token
Zhedor: oh come now, there is no need to force storm
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: genuine 3D aerial combat would be amazing, but to be fair it's also hell to design in a way where anyone has any idea what's going on.
the_gentleman_crow: Storm is fly bio
the_gentleman_crow: Boi
AntedrigusManor: first time seeing gameplay of this and it really does look like a mix between andromeda and destiny
djalternative: More fleshed out melee for flying would be great
ThePerrBearr: go Hulk Buster
angryoptimist: Storm does seem like Cam's class, given that he favors Warlocks in Destiny.
EsperDerek1: It's kinda weird to do Iron Man: The Shooter and you can't do the fly-during-combat bit.
Evandill: Oh god if they had air combat that wasn't limited to one clas,s I'd pay more attention to this.
Vyous: Play Storm. Make your mech red & blue.
Evandill: but also that may further homogenize the desgins?
Zhedor: @Evandill it's not limited, but storm is better at it
axare123: but we love you, so since you like storm we want to see it go off
TimeToFry: Is that a giant sword stuck in the ground?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if you could just fly around for long stretches of time that's literally all I would do in this game. Maybe sometimes find a high ledge and snipe.
djalternative: Go Colossus and make it orange for Gritty
pimiento: maybe if your anthem could become a plane and it was also in space and there was also a button that launched a shedload if little missiles and it was macross
girlpainting: storm is maybe a nice way to play magic, BUT on the other side of the table it is BOOOOOORING, if you wait half an hour if the enemy can make it or not
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: why doesn't the agile suit have a railgun sniper rifle built into one shoulder is what I want to know.
Zhedor: i regularly freeze those
wicker_knight: @girlpainting I still love Sam Black's description of how to win with Eggs: "At some point during the process, your opponent falls asleep, granting you the win by default."
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: did we just kill a leopard?
theinvisiblevoice: ice has a build up stat before it freezes, big enemies have a higher 5th threshold
Evandill: I do really like that they stole ME's Primer+Finisher ability system. that was good.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: what on earth is attacking us
ContingentCat: With a world this pretty and having flying work this well having an exploration mode would be good, just let you fly around without inturruption
RvLeshrac: pimiento: Just to be clear, the suits aren't "Anthems"
haybalebarn: "Dominion" is the perfect generic conquering empire name
squickster subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 21 months!
squickster: YAY! its Cam!!!!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, squickster! (Today's storm count: 50)
the_gentleman_crow: My issue is storm hover isn't really that intuitive
angryoptimist: Wulfen? Are we talking Space Wolves, now?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I'd totally fly around and gather stuff and find stuff
pimiento: RvLeshrac : yea i know :)
girlpainting: wicker_knight i play games to have a good time with me and my friends. if i play storm, i am essentialy robing my oponent from its fun....i would never play something like that
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I would imagine that they'd try to build it into the arm instead, just because "on the shoulder" tends to indicate "rocket" on a mech
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @wicker_knight I'm thinking something that's normally slung over the back, and when in use flips over the shoulder to lie along the arm
djalternative: you should be able to do things like put googley eyes on your suit
angryoptimist: Are we Wolf Lords with your Wolf Claws with our Wolf Wolves doing our Wolf Things in prep for the Wolf Time?
FinalShowFilms: The Freeplay mode isn't single player, but it also doesn't require you to interact with the other players.
wicker_knight: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou oh, similar to Mass Effect again. Yeah that makes sense
FinalShowFilms: You don't have to interact with them at all, they're just there.
TimeToFry: Some kind of effect field
frostfeuer: I really like the voice acting of the fem main character though
Erudite_Cynic: this game seems to be filled with "can't evens"
I_Am_Clockwork: ok.... So Lets design areas where there is no flying.. ya know our core mechanic?
RvLeshrac: 4-man free play is just... not good.
Evandill: I also agree that yes I want attatchments on these suits
mjihde: As I said, it's a land game in which you can fly sometimes, even though they try to sell flight as the main thing that makes this game stand out
Zhedor: @I_Am_Clockwork i think its good for some variety
mjihde: They approached it all wrong
noSmokeFire: it's not really suppressed, just impolite
Rhynerd: Can’t stop the storm
Meltalar: dear DR cameron. i have not seen more of the game that you showed. and so far this game does not tickle my fancies. it looks awesome but thats it
haybalebarn: From what I've seen, the world is incredibly pretty, yet... visually uninteresting, if that makes sense?
angryoptimist: lrrWOW
TehAmelie: your jetpack is all like "help, help, i'm being suppressed"
Jameson920 : I’m really wrestling I with if I should pick this up
Earthenone: the flight reminds me of tera
LairofLore: I don't think its distance based, it seems to be triggering when one of you crosses an invisible line
Ukon_vasara: yeah, feel like Plains of Eidolon woulda showed that a squad of randos for freeroam is ... icky
RvLeshrac: Jameson920: PC, you can pay $15 for Origin and get it for a month, I guess.
TimeToFry: Why is he so big
Erudite_Cynic: thats a big lad
I_Am_Clockwork: @Zhedor yeah it's only a problem if they abuse that design space out of laziness
FinalShowFilms: Yeah, it's "Is someone here? Everyone who isn't will get teleported in 20-30 seconds"
Rhynerd: @haybalebarn I think I can see what you mean it makes me want to see a Talking Sim about Dirty Bomb
girlpainting: TimeToFry because he always eats his greens
mjihde: I wanted this to be awesome, and I may get it when it's cheaper, but while it looks 'fine' it doesn't look $100 of fun to me unfortunately. And none of my friends are getting it.
Evandill: Agreed.
Meark subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 51 months!
Meark: Cheers!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Meark! (Today's storm count: 51)
TehAmelie: a game for your stalemate
BlueChloroplast: time to shoot thingys
Xed_Regulus: Whoa, he's a big fella
angryoptimist: Big McLargeHuge
El_Funko: But also your friends could play some for $0 investment, like Warframe. I'm super curious what EA does with this game post-launch
Riandisa: I wanted to get this, but it was clear none of my friends were gonna play it with me, so I couldn't justify buying it.
I_Am_Clockwork: you... could have stopped him?
reptileviking: Yeah no-one I know got it. I was hoping it would be the new hotness but instead everyone's just playing Apex!
frostfeuer: Yeah, I would much rather play warframe here
haybalebarn: Why couldn't you have shot... like 2 seconds before?
TehAmelie: you're huge! that means you have huge loot!
frostfeuer: They've come a long way with that games
Meark: Thanos?
silenceaux: Good thing the PC stayed completely out of the way and silent until AFTER he killed the agent
Ukon_vasara: why not take shots before the execution?
Earthenone: im sure over time the game will get both better and cheaper and may slide into margins easier
Zhedor: @I_Am_Clockwork so far i've seen that only once or twice, and it was used well then. like in the upcoming segment
TimeToFry: Like he's straight up twice the size of the others, and they're already big
ThePov42: himb tol
Meltalar: why do i like the bad guy more than the good guys?
noSmokeFire: that's totally the dead business man from that cutscene, right?
EvilBadman: Great we upset Ghaul.
wicker_knight: dumbs?
Zhedor: @Meltalar vader syndrome?
Rhynerd: Defeat the Doms
frostfeuer: The current road map doesn't release a new stronghold till april and cataclysms don't start till may
Rhynerd: ?
Evandill: @Meltalar 'causse he looks way more interesting than the PC's?
RvLeshrac: frostfeuer: The core problems in the game are *NOT* more content.
Awexdio: Huh.... I wasn't expecting to like the villain. Then again Bioware does make pretty good LE villains.
Kramburger: The worst thing about the division was headshotting dudes and them just shrugging it off
RvLeshrac: Adding more of the existing content with the existing problems is just going to compound all the problems, and also make new problems.
Dix: The aim seems like there's not much in teh way of an assist at all
I_Am_Clockwork: I don't see how these guys are functionally any different from the scars, which makes the coms dude's excitment seem disengenuous
Anaerin: First you Wombo. Then you Combo.
frostfeuer: @RvLeshrac I didn't say they were, there are a lot of core issues with the game. But the content is also light
angryoptimist: @Rhynerd I really want these to be MS-09B Doms, now.
Meark: Wait, this looks a lot like Andromeda
TimeToFry: @chat does anyone know what video Cam was talking about earlier? It was some sort of in depth review?
Zhedor: @Meark same engine, same studio.
I_Am_Clockwork: it's a medium game in an overcrowded marketspace
Ukon_vasara: it will be quite interesting to see Anthem in 8 months or so
Meark: Zhedor Well that explains that.
girlpainting: well, i am pritty much burned out on Guild Wars 2 for 7 years now.....i am looking for a good one to switch
TehAmelie: i do like the giant villain. almost a One Piece feeling
El_Funko: Yeah the post-launch phase for this game is going to be interesting to watch
El_Funko: If it survives
tapas_fe: the flying is sick tho
FinalShowFilms: For me the Javelins were the selling point.
niccus: Anthem reminds me a lot of Warframe way back in the beta days but i have no idea if Bioware can afford to put in that much more effort to make it the contender it needs to be
Worldbuild: Terribly worried for Bioware
angryoptimist: I'm certainly worried for Bioware.
CamelAttack: He also pointed out that EA forces studios to work on games they arent very good at. Then kills the mfor underperforming.
Meark: I enjoy the flight as a method for dealing with covering long in game distances
FinalShowFilms: I do not like the suits in Warframe nearly as much as I like the Javelins
Rhynerd: Yeah, question exists if EA is loading a shotgun as we speak.
RvLeshrac: The problem here in Anthem is that none of these problems are a shocking surprise.
Meark: I would also have played more Andromeda.
Meltalar: i like andromeda, but there was so much, you could do with it
haybalebarn: Andromeda was deeply flawed, but with a lot of heart
girlpainting: dos this game has a monthly subscription ?
Dix: The fact there was no DLC was a massive travesty
KerbalDyne: Wait andromeda is already gone?
Meark: If to only play in that universe more
LairofLore: that reminds me...what did they do for people who bought the andromeda season pass?
Dix: KerbalDyne Yeah. All development has stopped
CamelAttack: EA might not be loading a shotgun yet because who else do they have to turn to as far as major studios go?
Rhynerd: Or if the shotgun’s already loaded and tomorrow they’re gonna ask Bioware to meet them behind the shed.
Anaerin: KerbalDyne: Yup. No more updates, and no DLC at all for Andromeda.
RvLeshrac: There's no way that Bioware couldn't have seen ALL of these problems during development.
Meark: Andromeda's DLC is referenced in the game, but cut as soon as the game came out
frostfeuer: Yeah there are only 3 objective types in this game, no matter the mission you are doing
wicker_knight: @CamelAttack 3rd parties they don't own
KerbalDyne: holy crap that was fast
Iraeda: @LairofLore absolutely nothing
HesGotNoPants: do we mean mass effect andromeda?
frostfeuer: Oh agreed, these are glaring issues with core gameplay and loot
Meark: Yes.
Anaerin: HesGotNoPants: Yes.
Zhedor: yes
Evandill: @HesGotNoPants yep.
orellien2773: Biiiiit overkill, that :D
RvLeshrac: But especially "let's build our entire game around flight and then put a ridiculous limiter on it."
LairofLore: Iraeda uhf well thats depressing
frostfeuer: All the weapons of a given type look identical, it doesn't feel good to get some loot
hawkfalcon8: i love this, it's like talking sim, which is my favourite stream
niccus: @girlpainting it's a single-payment game
Awexdio: My biggest disappointment with Anthem... is that I want to support Bioware... but I refuse to pay the corporate murderers that are EA
girlpainting: niccus thx
wicker_knight: yeah, this definitely feels like a good game, poorly produced
frostfeuer: I'm in agreement that this was a single player story experience that was told they needed to make it a GaaS
pimiento: yea but a marketting exec said it would come out, so to not release it would have meant he'd look silly in front of his mates
angryoptimist: The art's and the polish are there, just needs more of the rest.
KharadBanar: I don't believe any AAA product nowadays that markets itself as a "single-payment game"
wicker_knight: poorly scheduled
frostfeuer: Some of the story content is out of logical order
EsperDerek1: Bioware's never been particularly great at UIs.
Dix: just look at kathleen's Fallout 76 joke from Checkpoint about 'when it comes out of Alpha this fall'
Erudite_Cynic: its a rush to revenue industry right now
1losttheGame: they need a new UI team
snake12341: You would think EA would start working its way out of the absolute shitshow it dug itself into, but I haven't seen any work
frostfeuer: Division 2 learned from division 1 in a lot of ways
angryoptimist: Fallout 76 has probably blown absolutely every chance it has to make a good impression at this point.
TehAmelie: maybe EA will cut Bioware loose and give them their IPs back to keep working on their own terms haha i want to dream
cmdrzellgaudis: I wish Andromeda had just been bold enough to take its make its own path with its own storyline rather than poach bits from the first two ME games
the_gentleman_crow: I hate how people jumped on the hate train of anthem then apex cones out nothing but love
BlueChloroplast: Huh. All I've seen are the ads which seemed annoying
Ukon_vasara: yeah, i feel like if that early access a month ago did anything, it hurt Anthem
Anaerin: It's almost like they should have had a proper beta phase for this, and had the time to fix the issues within it. A lot of times "Open Beta" are just early demos.
NovaTiempo: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:00:58.
I_Am_Clockwork: fire and acid I belive
girlpainting: yellow = ice
RatekStormcrow: ice
I_Am_Clockwork: oh
JonTheGoose: the more I look at this game the more I wish it were ME4....
TehAmelie: i think at least now i've seen the game in action the Blomkamp movie/trailer will make sense
frostfeuer: Have you seen all the fixes between last division 2 beta and this one. Thats a big list for beta to beta
girlpainting: just remember yellow snow @ LoadingReadyRun
girlpainting: ^^
TimeToFry: Nice grenade
Zhedor: early access always hurts games. If only because it dilutes the impact of the release. I mean there is a reason why movies don't stagger their release dates
wicker_knight: @TehAmelie Just think, a decade from now there won't be a mess of copyright lawsuits to get access to the Dragon Age IP for some sort of maker mod :<
orellien2773: That's the reason why I'm muuuuuch more interested in seeing Anthem improve htan Division 2: Anthem has, you know, actually competent storytelling.
Anaerin: The turret's firing ice at you, so it makes sense it'd be vulnerable to fire.
BlueChloroplast: oooh awesome beastie!
TimeToFry: Does this game have lootboxes?
the_gentleman_crow: No
angryoptimist: Yes.
angryoptimist: IIRC?
wicker_knight: it has lootcrafting
Zhedor: as for EA needing to change how they do business: why should they? they've continously been making more money each year since 2016
FinalShowFilms: No lootboxes that I'm aware of.
frostfeuer: @TimeToFry not as of yet
angryoptimist: Oh, it doesn't?
EikoandMog: Oh god, I hate this realisation.
angryoptimist: Right, the other one does.
frostfeuer: Currently no lootboxes
I_Am_Clockwork: man those rift sound efects are lifted straight out of DA Inquisition
niccus: it's fucked up that lootboxes dont contain loot
wicker_knight: @EikoandMog which?
EikoandMog: I realised I spent 48 hours on a game in 2 weeks.
TimeToFry: Okay, that's good
Stoffern: I have not seen boxes. it has microtransactions but you buy things directly
angryoptimist: (That is, Apex Legends has lootboxes.)
angryoptimist: Got the two EA games mixed up.
Talin06: No loot boxes yet
TehAmelie: The Monitor? are we in Crisis on Infinite Earths now?
SquareDotCube: No lootboxes? Guess they got scared after the E3 reveal and Belgian response to lootboxes
the_gentleman_crow: There's u buy coesmetics but no loot boxes
pimiento: birch?
SquareDotCube: and, well, I hate to say it but it makes for less of a game
wicker_knight: :/
the_gentleman_crow: Battle front 2 hurt ea bad
I_Am_Clockwork: man the PG swear cutoff
ArcOfTheConclave: why was there that 2 second pause?
silenceaux: Weird way to cut off that son-of-a line
Evandill: There was more than enough time to say "bitch" there.
Jay_Blanc: So... What happens to EA once they have ground down and exhausted all their studios?
haybalebarn: The Dominion seem a bit generic, but I will admit this mission makes me interested in them.
Pteraspidomorphi: Son of a.... *long silence*
angryoptimist: Loot boxes don't really add substance to a game.
haybalebarn: I can't stop comparing this game to Destiny 2 though, major Red Legion vibes
Zhedor: oddly enough it was better cut when i played the mission
SquareDotCube: @Jay_Blanc they'll just make FIFA. Nothing but FIFA.
TehAmelie: maybe it was a really long swear word
pimiento: we can't have dances, they'll get sued
reptileviking: Sure, get them sued by Beyonce :P
Rhynerd: @jay_blanc they die as a company, hopefully.
Drakas: i love this track
noSmokeFire: in the future a long pause is the most devastating insult of all
Awexdio: So the monitor is just the illusive man over whatever he was in Mass Effect games?
TehAmelie: remember Ron Swanson's nickname for Leslie's mom? that was some bleeping comedy
niccus: oh yeah by the way this game's soundtrack is pretty darn good
Zhedor: they can also make sims
Dhaunayne: i need a game to have qwop as a dance
noSmokeFire: your cape is really energetic considering your model is otherwise totally static
Prophetx05: i definitely think that going into this game with no hype has made my opinion of it more favorable
Meark: Can I get more didgeridoo in my monitor?
MalBeam: i don't know how well leg-based poses will work with the reverse-knee mech design
theonlyangelx: so. how is anthem, Cam?
angryoptimist: Electric didgeridoo is an instrument?
orellien2773: Remember to follow your Legionnaire challenges!
Anaerin: theonlyangelx: "Fine"
EikoandMog: Oh, that is absolutely didgeridoo. Wonderful.
Zhedor: @Prophetx05 same here
Mazrae: hello hello
masterblaster999: hi cameron
angryoptimist: I know of regular didgeridoos, but I hadn't thought someone made an electric one or how or why.
theonlyangelx: ok. cool. oh that's a shame
TehAmelie: a very warbly digeridoo. is it autotuned or something?
EikoandMog: It's a great instrument that needs to be used more often. I say this as an Australian, though.
Prophetx05: this is a game i would like to play with friends, and that's enough for me
theonlyangelx: i mean, i wish games would stop being released without.... content.....
El_Funko: It's hard to judge sales though, most numbers so far are from retail which is mostly console
theonlyangelx: yeah, australia here, so samesies
the_gentleman_crow: It's a few weeks out still
noSmokeFire: it's like giving early access to your unfinished game has...repurcussions?
Worldbuild: So much I'm hearing is this is an incomplete game.
El_Funko: And doesn't count those who got it through Origin Access or EA Access
frostfeuer: roadmap in question
the_gentleman_crow: Oof
El_Funko: Especially since EA was pushing those subscription services so hard
theonlyangelx: ohai @El_Funko how you doing friendo?
angryoptimist: EA gets too gunshy, considering their willingness to blow money on things that are certain to be "disappointing" (i.e. pushing stuff out the door too fast).
the_gentleman_crow: That be the shabby boi
theonlyangelx: oh, and it's foxmar on too, hiya foxmar!
Prophetx05: what does interacting with someone in the launch bay do?
Kaorti: Bioware isn't really the same studio it used to be.
El_Funko: Hey angel, I'm well! Yourself?
Worldbuild: Agreed @angryoptimist
Darleysam: anyone that plays Dota, Owen's VA does Timbersaw and Bristleback amongst others
frostfeuer: Was it the legendary weapon?
theonlyangelx: yeah, doing good. it's hot as hecke out there today
El_Funko: Yeah if it's the legendary weapon, that's a bug
frostfeuer: There is a bug where the pre-order masterwork vanishes
angryoptimist: Hopefully, for Bioware's sake, they give them time to sort the game out.
Drakas: yea thats a bug
frostfeuer: It'll come back after next mission
Himyul: nice secondary weapon. Shame if something happened to it.... lrrDARK lrrDARK lrrDARK
frostfeuer: Apparently
Stoffern: Thats happened to me too Foxmar320 they did eventually come back
Jay_Blanc: @angryoptimist EA makes promises to investors that Games Will Be Released On These Dates.
dr0ne00000: @LoadingReadyRun I've been enjoying this game a lot
ThinksTooMuch waves @theonlyangelx
RomanianMyEscutcheon: The way EA cans projects on a whim, it becomes very easy to forget they have all but a guaranteed revenue stream with the various EA Sports properties.
theonlyangelx: that's convenient
theonlyangelx: ohai @ThinksTooMuch
Drakas: there is also a bug were you dont get you lvl 20 epic unlocks
FinalShowFilms: @Foxmar320 There is a glitch in the game when you first go to the launch bay
Prophetx05: i want EA to give this game its chance
theonlyangelx: making games is hard, and publishers are making it harder
angryoptimist: @Jay_Blanc They also promise monotonic revenue increase year-over-year. Sort of a mess.
Evandill: I'd believe it.
FinalShowFilms: Promo gear disappears from your inventory when you first go to the launch bay. When you leave they come back
theonlyangelx: games produced on their own schedule seem to do better anyway
El_Funko: *cough* Apex Legends is a remarkable release *smug cough because my bae is perfect*
theonlyangelx: @El_Funko exactly, on their own schedule, game was great
El_Funko: Yeah absolutely
pimiento: ape legs is also a much smaller game
ThinksTooMuch: recent example: KH3. Game took forever to come out, but when it did, it was incredible
Kramburger: Not to mother you Cam, but will you need to take a break before Talking Sim?
EvilBadman: Apex Legends also has a gameplay hook and not relying on plot
thatguy575 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 20 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, thatguy575! (Today's storm count: 52)
pimiento: which helps, but yes.. super polished and real nice to play
SquareDotCube: I'd be okay if EA did just leave their developers alone
Laserbeaks_Fury: Also from what I heard, they finished APEX before EA got involved
Kaorti: Releasing so quickly after announcement was a smart move for Apex.
theonlyangelx: 100%
RvLeshrac: Making games is hard, but constantly repeating the exact same design mistakes over and over doesn't help.
theonlyangelx: i'd be willing to wait for them
Jay_Blanc: Will EA learn from Apex Legends, or accidentally kill it?
TehAmelie: i'd be all over Apex if it had any single player mode. . .
cynimo: so how does this compare to an older looter shooter like borderlands 2?
theonlyangelx looks longingly at the eventual F76 content
haybalebarn: I feel like in the world of games, innovation in writing has lagged far behind innovation in other areas.
El_Funko: I'd counter that getting 60 people online in the same source engine match is quite an achievement
noSmokeFire: The Red Dead debacle points that way, I think
El_Funko: The thing that confuses me with Anthem isn't the bugs and stuff, it's a lot of the design decisions they've made
EikoandMog: I think we're gonna see the MMO crash and burn in "live services" soon.
reptileviking: I just wish they dialed the graphics a bit. Wouldn't that solve most of the problems?
Prophetx05: I think we're hitting the top-end size of the Bubble
SquareDotCube: That's fine, they brought it upon themselve
Jay_Blanc: I'm pretty sure AAA Games are in mid-collapse already.
EvilBadman: the fact that games haven't really increased in price since forever is mind blowing
El_Funko: The Fortress or whatever the social space is, feels so bland and empty for a multi game
Zhedor: There is also a massive problem in game dev with the estimation of long any given part of a project will take. this problem also exists in regular software dev but there you have more experienced project managers
MadAboutVideoGames: I dont believe the line that EA wasnt involved with APEX its monetization is a publishers wet dream
RvLeshrac: reptileviking: Not really, in most cases.
Himyul: maybe 2
theonlyangelx: oh yeah, games have advanced incredibly
nehemothmtg: I cant remember the command,how long has the stream been live?
Crokoking: there also is probably a ton of more gamers
reptileviking: Why not? In the 2000s teams of like 20 people made decently sized games
Himyul: 1.5 orders of magnitude
Vyous: Some of it is the economy of scale & a wider target audience.
El_Funko: @nehemothmtg About 2 hours
Prophetx05: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:11:49.
theonlyangelx: log4
Baldrash: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 15:23:12. lrrSPOT
nehemothmtg: Ty
KharadBanar: The player base is also orders of magnitude larger, and marginal costs are negligible
Prophetx05: you're welcome
djalternative: economies of scale
frostfeuer: 6 years yeah
LathosTiran: in development from 2012
Talin06: Those games where complete though
omdorastrix: The team that did the menus in this game, might be as large as the team that did the entirety of Kings Quest... for example
I_Am_Clockwork: 6 years of dev, and it still feels rushed and unfinished
MadAboutVideoGames: The price per unit for games has dropped they dont manufacter indiviual copys
angryoptimist: It's hard to say--these things build on top of themselves. Theoretically, it's should be cheaper to do more, to some extent. Given how much wheel-reinvention game development does, though, that's certainly accurate, though.
Himyul: and you have to predict future hardware before you start developing
AbyssalSnowstorm: Howsit?
Prophetx05: i think the game industry is going to have a good old 2008 housing crash
orellien2773: Which do you think costs more, developing Anthem or creating Infinity War?
I_Am_Clockwork: that's not to say the devs are bad, but that building thses sorts of games is an olympian task
theonlyangelx: is this a romance option?
angryoptimist: @Prophetx05 Probably more a question of when not if, now.
Driosenth: Cameron, King
pimiento: that's a haircut you can set your watch to
SgtCommanderson: development time was 6 years, but I'm not sure all 6 of those were making this particular design
Driosenth: 's quest was 700K
orellien2773: No romance options, @theonlyangelx
theonlyangelx: :P
Zhedor: @orellien2773 infinity war, easily
Vyous: Some of the problems I see with these AAA titles is that they spend all this time making beautiful environments, and mo-capped, voice acted NPCs, but then forget to make actual content around it.
noSmokeFire: this hair went to college
Officinalis: Lucky Jak, (Legally not Handsome Jak)
Kramburger: Given that the business world in general has shifted to short-term profits as Daytraders become more common, I think it's possible that games companies being publicly traded has the potential to be a bubble that headed for a bust
djalternative: yeah. the lip sync on this really bothers me now
Jay_Blanc: Developing Anthem would have cost way more than the production costs of Infinity War.
angryoptimist: The thing is, games have gotten more expensive to make in the last 5-10 years--I'm with Jim Sterling on this, I'm not sure they got *better*.
coelopteryx: i am now entertained at the idea of Temporal Hair
theonlyangelx: EspeCIALLY ALIENS
Anaerin: The romance option is the players you met along the way.
reptileviking: If I can't smooch aliens I'm not interested!
El_Funko: I want to see some iron men pound thrusters
Prophetx05: @angryoptimist almost certainly, this bubble is going to pop, probably sooner than the publishers expect
warpspeed365: Yes thank you!
TimeToFry: Does this game even have a fandom?
FinalShowFilms: You haven't met the objectively correct choice yet.
RvLeshrac: Games are more expensive to make, and none of that is actually going into employee salaries, so where the hell is it going?
LathosTiran: 10$/hr *40 hr/week * 200 people 8 6 years =$24,960,000
hawkfalcon8: speaking of how was rin? Avenir
Dix: Hard to smash when its... mechanical
orellien2773: It's nice, but I honestly really like the characterization in Anthem. Don't need banging quite yet.
TimeToFry: The Tumblr tag is relatively quiet
theonlyangelx: @Dix you lack... imagination :P
Earthenone: !smash
LRRbot: Put Aunt Euphemia in Smash, you cowards!
Dix: theonlyangelx I prefer not to think that far into it. lol
JorranSteele: Just got in. Has any actual combat happened yet?
warpspeed365: @dix you clearly have never tried hard enough 😂
Zhedor: plz no spoilers for dice friends, I haven't seen the most recent episode
banachspacebar: I'm going to choose what Foxmar is saying is that Matthias settles down with someone in a quiet home somewhere
TheKingWiggins subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 3 months, currently on a 3 month streak!
TheKingWiggins: Finally able to catch Cam, yay!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheKingWiggins! (Today's storm count: 53)
RvLeshrac: LathosTiran: Dev salaries should be closer to $50-60/hr to meet market.
Rhynerd: Yeah the Beta’s questline would really... affect the romance.
Himyul: LathosTiran 10/hour is way too cheap, and 40/week is way too low
RomanianMyEscutcheon: You could almost say that you're... a Guardian. lrrBEEJ
RvLeshrac: LathosTiran: But I'd wager the average salary is around $30.
the_gentleman_crow: I prefer the mechanic she has a good personality too bad she has a kid
AbyssalSnowstorm: ^
LathosTiran: i was being very conservative to low ball the number as an illustration of the floor of long game development
Laserbeaks_Fury: Damn, people really turned hard on Freelancers for just failing
Laserbeaks_Fury: They didn't even do anything wrong
omdorastrix: Mission gives you
FinalShowFilms: It makes an amount of sense.
Zhedor: a kid from a prior relationship would actually be something interesting in aromanceble npc
angryoptimist: All this freelancer talk is just making them think of the world building in the various Armored Core continuities From Soft made.
FinalShowFilms: When your disaster relief organization fails in their disaster relief efforts, belief in them dwindles
Prophetx05: the awcond shopkeeper always feels like she's hitting on me, i just want to invite her out to drinks once
Prophetx05: *second
Baldrash: @Evandill *Raises hand*
Anaerin: Is it just me, or is anyone else getting a Roman Centurion vibe from Owen here?
Himyul: "mistakes were made"
Evandill: Though tbh, I'm also the kind of person to scroll past quest text in WoW after a while.
TimeToFry: So what's the deal with the triangular iconography everywhere
AbyssalSnowstorm: That's a pretty good comparison
ujai321: this is thrilling
Zhedor: @Anaerin now that you mention it, yeah a bit
orellien2773: Brin! <hugs Brin>
FinalShowFilms: What equivocated to a capitol city was destroyed and the disaster relief efforts (Freelancers) failed to put it down.
Jay_Blanc: It only cost $400 Million to make Infinity War. That wouldn't pay Bioware's payroll for four years.
ThePov42: Huh. New Detective Pikachu trailer is... still baffling
Luminaire_p: Talk to her near her plants. :)
Darleysam: oh Brin is so good, one of my favourite characters in this
noSmokeFire: she goes "woo woo woo" in the background
FinalShowFilms: Getting your new suit @Foxmar320 ?
Rhynerd: Yeah, that sounds like woobie.
theonlyangelx: LANCER you say :3 :3 :3
Himyul: to sent the nels
Officinalis: Suits in the gig economy.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are the sentinels military or police?
Rhynerd: Yes
holir_: wow... I never thought about the name "FreeLancer" before.
Zhedor: cam, please listen to the radio plays ;)
noSmokeFire: you use the lancr app
theonlyangelx: yep
I_Am_Clockwork: A Free Lancer, as in a Lancer (knight) who had no lord
Earthenone: close enough
LathosTiran: your lance was free for hire
Worldbuild: Knight errant
the_gentleman_crow: Sentinels are the military police from attack on Titan free lancers are scout regiment
ThePov42: An unbound kingt... a free lance
Officinalis: The classic black knight
angryoptimist: Ronins, IIRC, had heaps of negative connotations.
axare123: yes
EikoandMog: A ronin!
Worldbuild: Oh, a Man at Arms
angryoptimist: Knight Errants on the other hand...
I_Am_Clockwork: Often Free-lancers had the reputation of being one step away from being a well armed bandit
TimeToFry: Uhhhh
KaleWoamingford: have you seen the radios around the fort that you can turn on?
holir_: So FreeLancer was the Lyft driver of war
TimeToFry: I feel like I recall Cam saying he'd do sub notifications...
I_Am_Clockwork: arms and lower torso?
Ukon_vasara: what really tickled me was the negative ammo glitches ive seen
FinalShowFilms: No, you do have a body. I've seen it
canoecrasher subscribed with Twitch Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, canoecrasher! (Today's storm count: 54)
Angreed66: Ronins were less ethically complicated though. True samurai committed horrible crimes regularly for their lords.
Zhedor: @KaleWoamingford have you figure out what happens to Krista?
theonlyangelx: shout out to the 17-1800's when a cowboy, a samurai and a Natural Scientist/Engineer could all be working together to explore ancient mayan ruins
FinalShowFilms: The camera has glitched out for me and I saw the inside of my face
SketchyDetails: Your model is a headless body
FinalShowFilms: Which is weird considering no players ever se you outside of your suit
haybalebarn: In the beta, I had a moment where I loaded into the world and my head didn't load with me, so I was just running around as a headless mech.
angryoptimist: I kinda liked how it was in Armored Core--you were a mercenary, negative connotations included.
TheMandrew: there's a head. i've had a glitch when i was in a conversation and the camera panned back further into the skull, so i could see the back of the teeth
TimeToFry: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a critical look at some of their favourite video games. Game: Occupy White Walls) at Tue 06:00 PM PST (40m from now).
Sarcastic_comma: there is alot of down time in this game
theonlyangelx: ooh, pretty colour foxmar
ravage2002: most of the textures loading bug are fixed by installing the game to a ssd
Rhynerd: I forgot what Occupy White Walls is.
angryoptimist: A hypthotihunch.
noSmokeFire: homeboy is gonna get possessed, huh
Earthenone: thats a pretty load screen
EikoandMog: Art gallery mmo.
Evandill: This game also makes me acutely aware of how often I check my menu in D2
angryoptimist: We are Zool?
mjihde: This is a damn pretty game though, all gameplay concerns aside
theonlyangelx: that's a satisfying ambient jetpack noise
I_Am_Clockwork: Our Free lancer seems to be characterized as a bit of an impulsive.
Abelzumi: <message deleted>CAM, I'M DRUNK, BUT NOTICE ME
RvLeshrac: Oh yeah, the load times in this are just atrocious.
angryoptimist: Cam does not like dogs.
RvLeshrac: Especially they constant load times when doing things like trying to look at your loot.
Evandill: @mjihde It's glorious looking
Earthenone: lrrSPOT
sir_jack_DB: thanks mods lrrDARK
phorrestgaze: which animals would you be more comfortable with shooting flak?
Anubis169: play nice
Rhynerd: The dogs were firing flak?
angryoptimist: lrrHEART mods for whatever it sas
Zhedor: because you keep bringing a storm foxmar
angryoptimist: *was
Dix: meant to time out and accidentally like.. actually b anned. whoops.
angryoptimist: Womp womp.
Dix: TFW you dixHAMMER a little too much
Himyul: lrrEFF that dog in particular
Officinalis: Armadillos firing flak. That...seems like it would be right.
theonlyangelx: eh, it's fair enough
Rhynerd: Well, hopefully there’s an unban option.
Anubis169: Ev'ry day i'm ha-mer-in'
the_gentleman_crow: Remove Dix sword
EikoandMog: You're a loose cannon, Dix but damn if you don'
theonlyangelx: also, i think the worst flak animals would be.... leeches
EikoandMog: t get results!
Wellbot1 subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 13 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Wellbot1! (Today's storm count: 55)
theonlyangelx: or ticks?
Dix: oh i unbanned them. I just meant to only purge it
Earthenone: better to act quickly and fix it later to get the messages out of chat
Earthenone: imo
noSmokeFire: flak bobbit worms
Dix: exactly Earthenone
theonlyangelx: ooooh, mods are like Free Lancers
TehAmelie: but he gets results!
Dix: it was like eh good
the_gentleman_crow: I gest Dix
Rhynerd: Would ticks be easier or harder to deal with if they fired flak?
white_wampa: so far, has Anthem been bad, mediocre, or good?
theonlyangelx: @Rhynerd i just had the best/worst idea for an RPG enemy. ticks that explode when you try to remove them
Rhynerd: I mean, the think that typically sucks about ticks is that you can’t see them unless you actively search for them, right?
azureHaights: So I take it today is One More NewTalk TuesTalk
Rhynerd: And the. You have to hope you find them before they dig in
I_Am_Clockwork: oh man. Warmer/Colder! My favorite kids game >.>
Himyul: well this just got eggciting!
theonlyangelx: bugs with teeth!
TheAinMAP: Icky monster.
angryoptimist: M O I S T U R E
MalBeam: elite worker aka employee of the month
the_gentleman_crow: Depends on their flak if the flack from tick would give u Rocky Mountain disorder if u got hit by it that would be bad
EikoandMog: Ew, I stepped in it, ew, ewwwww
Rhynerd: That was all your health
azureHaights: Moist junk
Officinalis: That moment gave me Bloodborne flashbacks.
TehAmelie: anyway, re. those Mayan ruins. my favorite setup for a historical drama:
angryoptimist: Pretty soon, the outside of your suit will smell like the inside.
I_Am_Clockwork: I feel like this game mechanic is a hold over from Andromeda's resource radar mechanic
theonlyangelx: @TehAmelie that's exactly what i was remembering! good to know i'm not alone in loving that concept
ayirbudd: so this game is basically just warframe right?
Prophetx05: i also greatly enjoy playing this while listening to audiobooks
the_gentleman_crow: No warframe is more polished
ayirbudd: lol
angryoptimist: The character designs, certainly.
angryoptimist: The environments, maybe not.
ujai321: perfect 5/10
Himyul: lrrFINE
angryoptimist: Though I *do* like Warframe's environments.
haybalebarn: Cam is whelmed by the game.
samwonk: I'm glad that you are having the experience of it in which it is functional, and therefore that the best you can say about it is that it's functional.
niccus: it's analogous to warframe way back when and needs about as much effort as it did
ravage2002: It's fine solo
samwonk: Other people are having this experience but less functional.
Taveena: Honestly I'd say if you enjoy Bioware games you'll enjoy it EVEN if you don't have friends playing it.
theonlyangelx: yeah, kinda the F76 problem, alongside many other games of a similar class
Taveena: Alternatively if you enjoyed ME:Andromeda's combat and wanted more.
niccus: the bugs are definitely more pronounced on ps4 so maybe hold off for that particular version
canoecrasher: Is he playing with James? Or is that someone else?
FinalShowFilms: I enjoy this even playing solo. I also just don't really like Destiny's gameplay enough to stick with it.
theonlyangelx: @canoecrasher Foxmar320
EikoandMog: Thast is @Foxmar320
Himyul: is Destiny better, or do you just have more sunk cost in it?
angryoptimist: And Destiny 2 will *for sure* be seeing further investment of resources from Bungie--this, who knows?
canoecrasher: Gotcha
Zhedor: @Taveena my thoughts exactly
the_gentleman_crow: Though comparing the two is like comparing strawberries and watermelon
theonlyangelx: yeah, omg mood
theonlyangelx: i do like the aesthetics of this planet
Anaerin: angryoptimist: You say that, but Bungie no longer has access to Activision's other studios to build their extra content for them.
theonlyangelx: it would make a pretty fun LANCER setting :P
SquareDotCube: But hey, maybe EA will consider just to leave their studios alone and let them make the games they want to make, and not the games that metrics say they should make
angryoptimist: @Anaerin That's true. On the other hand, what else will they do?
EikoandMog: I believe the word is "Stormy"
KexanR: the lightning comes from the little creatures on the ground
Evandill: @SquareDotCube One can hope.
Prophetx05: i think EA has started skipping the "cutting out finished parts of the game" to go to "release game, then finish those parts and add them later"
TimeToFry: @theonlyangelx That's my thing with this game, the setting and most of the lore is all just pretty dang cool, and then the gameplay is just kind of... Meh
theonlyangelx: "jumpscare"
Anaerin: Oh, hey, Metroids!
TehAmelie: that's require EA to remember their own history and their manifesto as the "electronic artists"
Earthenone: maybe the weather comes with the class
angryoptimist: @Anaerin We know it'll continue to exist, at least--this game could very well evaporate in a year if it can't become not-"disappointing" in sales.
theonlyangelx: oh, doublescorpion
theonlyangelx: i like it
JonTheGoose: shoot it in the....mandible?
TheKingWiggins: War Machine the game
theonlyangelx: that crab is pretty cool too
TehAmelie: ah, giant earwig-scorpions. those should have been in Avatar
theonlyangelx: oh, that sounds like cool lore
angryoptimist: Warmachine the miniatures game or Cpt. "Rhodey" Rhodes War Machine?
theonlyangelx: YES!
TheKingWiggins: Both
theonlyangelx: i should really do another runthrough of Alpha Centauri
Evandill: I do still agree with Patrick Gill that the designs of the mechs need... something more.
theonlyangelx: but i don't know if i can now that it's called Rygel Kentaurus again
noSmokeFire: homeboy is super, super evil. calling it now
angryoptimist: You did 1 (one) explosion.
theonlyangelx: thanks Foxmar!
Worldbuild: Thank you for the stream
angryoptimist: Thanks for the stream!
ContingentCat: katesThank Foxmar and Cam
angryoptimist: Thanks Foxmar!
Rhynerd: Thanks Foxmar!
Rhynerd: And thanks for the stream!
theonlyangelx: thank, Cam
aitsu100: its def passable
mjihde: I appreciate that honesty, and it does look fine.
2lateudietwo: LUL is this destiny 2 expansion?
theonlyangelx: click on the insecthingos, make them all fall down
Papperslappen: It looks pretty good actually, maybe the missions are a bit similar to each other
adamjford: Feels like I'm going to wait for it to possibly get its own Taken King/Forsaken update
angryoptimist: Oh, Warframe has mechanics like that.
angryoptimist: It almost has too many mechanics like that.
Foxmar320: Agreed
theonlyangelx: we've had multiple mech/suit games, and we really just need
aesir_blade: Warframe has entire classes based around buffing your team and stuff like that
aitsu100: totally agree with you cam
theonlyangelx: a lancer game
niccus: it's a lot...
theonlyangelx: oofa
Worldbuild: That is correct
GarQuithnik: that sounds about right
reptileviking: I don't think that's true?
Foxmar320: Division also can have squad combos but not as much as Anthem or Warframe
angryoptimist: Warframe is fun to play immediately, IMO.
aClonedPickle: the new player experience isn't great, which is why it's nice to have a clan of people dropping free stuff on you
ujai321: 100 hours seems high, but there absolutely is a barrier
theonlyangelx: i wouldn't call this a big win
SachielOne: You need to build up a weapon and armor mod collection in Warframe
Novus_Spes: This is not the "big win," no. I feel ya, Cam.
angryoptimist: But, yeah, it changes as you play--and it takes a number of hours to get to its final form.
SquareDotCube: I think Bioware's big win will come from its top-down RPG roots, tbh
banachspacebar: They announced some stuff with the new player experience in 2019, so maybe wait for that?
theonlyangelx: it's a fine game, but it's no big win
the_gentleman_crow: Depends warframe can be fun before 100 hours
drcthulu: Lauderable
haybalebarn: Seems like a very lukewarm, whelming experience.
RvLeshrac: SquareDotCube: Everyone responsible for those has left.
KharadBanar: It makes you a Lauder
zerg539: It has the bones of a good game but not enough meat
MalBeam: i don't know if anthem was the sort of game to deliver an easy 'win' for Bioware given their company's strengths
SketchyDetails: I am a giant dork
theonlyangelx: is true
RvLeshrac: SquareDotCube: To make isometric RPGs.
theonlyangelx: yeah, it has a history
TehAmelie: i don't know warframe, but i can say Planetside would let you drive a giant robot a lot faster than that
Evandill: Warframr is fun bur it takes a while to hit the real interesting parts.
SketchyDetails: The people that work at bioware are the people that want to make games that Bioware makes
SgtCommanderson: If you liked icewind dale and baulder's gate, obsidian is more that bioware than the current bioware. If you liked dragon age and mass effect, there are still some people from those around.
theonlyangelx: O.O no mental resources? i must suck at WH40K :P
theonlyangelx: i think what they needed was just a really good DM as story lead
angryoptimist: Honestly, I'm surprised that Bioware made something so polished and functional with their first foray into this--there's no doubt in my mind that they can make this very good. I hope EA gives them the chance.
Bladinus: you might just havea different playstyle than Cam @theonlyangelx
Foxmar320: Looking at the roadmap it might be good by September when I feel it should have launched
theonlyangelx: @Bladinus mostly i'm just super new to WH, and I still haven't figured out psionics :P
Evandill: Getting this close is not nothing
angryoptimist: ^
niccus: every other space looter shooter have had long ramp-ups from when they launched
angryoptimist: It's not easy! And they did this first try.
theonlyangelx: mediocrity is a good starting point, but game pubs kind of... want immediate results
Bladinus: ah, that'll do it. Easy will come with familiarity.
Foxmar320: All of them have. Destiny 1 and 2 for sure had problems and got better.
DoodlestheGreat: Yes
niccus: warframe had a hideously long road
zerg539: Warframe is a completely different game from launch.
RvLeshrac: I have less faith in the gaming industry the more games that get released with the exact same problems as every game before them.
Evandill: Noooo
aClonedPickle: borderlands has The Worst loot drop rate in gaming
RvLeshrac: No one ever learns anything from any mistakes.
SketchyDetails: OH. I played Warframe at the VERY beginning.
DoodlestheGreat: Borderlands was AMAZING when it started.
SquareDotCube: Borderlands had a lot of samey weapons but I was fine with that tbh
SketchyDetails: Its SO much better now
Officinalis: Borderlands 1 was mediocre. Borderlands 2 was deece.
theonlyangelx: okie, imma head off! Thanks for being online Cam!
Foxmar320: Division had no end game at launch and progression was a mess. It got better.
Evandill: Borderlands wasn't, Bl2, was good
Baldrash: Diablo III is a master's thesis in how to fix a game.
Officinalis: Also...they didn't come out in 2019.
DoodlestheGreat: That's okay, Cam.
SquareDotCube: I'm in the minority in that I didn't like BL2's weapons quirks
adamjford: Someday someone will release a Reaper of Souls/Taken King/Forsaken/etc on the first try
theonlyangelx: honestly, this might be a good talking sim game to talk about the concepts behind game development and publishing
SketchyDetails: Cam would like us to get off his lawn.
SquareDotCube: Jakobs was probably the most tolerable
Rhynerd: One moooore thing
phorrestgaze: oh good, thought anthem gave you a mini-stroke
RvLeshrac: I don't much like "end game" content, because to me it always looks like a euphemism for "content you're paying for that you will never see."
Evandill: @adamjford I'd hope so.
KharadBanar: TBH I'm still salty about Diablo 3 that fixed all of its shit with the expansion but demanded that we pay for it again (If you don't have the expansion the game is just non-functional)
aClonedPickle: yeah idk, twitch.
RvLeshrac: To be fair, Diablo 3 was pretty clear about how broken it would be way before launch.
Frednotbob: I've tried that, it's really fun!
RvLeshrac: A lot of people were defending it with the usual tired "but but but beta" BS.
Earthenone: 4:33?
StalinThePunk: Did I just miss the entire stream doing homework???
RvLeshrac: That Said, I begrudgingly accept that if people hadn't bought it in spite of knowing it was going to be crap, it may not have had the funding to become not crap.
KharadBanar: I actually got a good deal of enjoyment out of Diablo 3 right at launch, but when I tried to get back into it without buying the expansion it just REALLY disappointed
TehAmelie: i remmeber following D3's development and being amazed at the vast new depths of disappointment they managed to find on a weekly basis
Earthenone: you missed the anthem stream, the talking simulator has yet to start @StalinThePunk
TimeToFry: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
StalinThePunk: @earthenone well that’s a consolation prize lol
unusuallylargemoth subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 7 months!
unusuallylargemoth: I like Cameron
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, unusuallylargemoth! (Today's storm count: 56)
RvLeshrac: I ALSO remember people going "lol colours are too bright lol get a life" at the criticism, not grasping that the criticism was "If they didn't understand the basics of the game, how can they get ANYTHING ELSE right?"
KharadBanar: To be fair, skills and animations felt *really* good in D3 right from the start
canoecrasher: I'm not new! 20 months!
canoecrasher: :)
RvLeshrac: I don't really like any of the classes except the post-expansion classes.
RvLeshrac: Demon Hunter is... fine?... but Paladin is so much better than any of the launch classes.
canoecrasher: It's fine, twitch glitch
Rhynerd: See you then!
KharadBanar: I liked my Wizard
RvLeshrac: Crusader, bleh
RvLeshrac: Same thing.
canoecrasher: Any recent games launch that way?
RvLeshrac: And Necromancer was relatively amusing.
Earthenone: i enjoyed the monk in base game
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Luminaire_p: Thank you for the stream, Cameron. :)
ArcOfTheConclave: It would be nice if mist games could launch as the games they could be.
Stoffern: Time to flip that side
Earthenone: but yeah crusader is basicly the same but better
RvLeshrac: I don't think Necromancer is $10 amusing.
RvLeshrac: But maybe for someone who REALLY loved the Necromancer.
KharadBanar: Anyway, EU person hitting the bed here
coriolis_storm: The bones of games and the skins of pixels!
KharadBanar: Good night!
RvLeshrac: At the end of the day, D3 was a disappointment not just because it had problems, but because they *literally* didn't need to do *anything* but make an updated Diablo II with new content.
twitch_Purple: Wow. Really just got here.
TehAmelie: i loved the D2 necromancer. still haven't finished the D3 expansion

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a critical look at some of their favourite video games. Game: Occupy White Walls) at Tue 06:00 PM PST (10m from now).
HesGotNoPants: !next
RvLeshrac: Anthem feels kind of the same way. All Bioware had to do was make Destiny with flying and not screw up badly like Destiny.
Nicarrow: z
RvLeshrac: Destiny with Flying, except it doesn't kick you in the balls if you actually try to play it for more than a few hours a week.
TehAmelie: i thought the skill system they worked on early on where you'd pick up runes as random drops to modify your skills in ways no one would even be able to predict because of all the billions of possibilities. that became extremely boring in the finished D3
HesGotNoPants: what's on talking sim?
Earthenone: Occupy White Walls
RvLeshrac: TehAmelie: It turns out PvP is a terrible idea, always, unless your game is focused almost exclusively on it.
TehAmelie: i thought it was fascinating, to finish the sentence
RvLeshrac: TehAmelie: ANet found out that it is impossible to have both a huge, interesting skill variety and PvP with the first Guild Wars.
RvLeshrac: Because when you have hundreds of interesting skills, some of them are going to be more powerful than others.
TehAmelie: and of course, pvp is where the money is
silenceaux: The other half of that was combining disparate skill sets
silenceaux: resulting in certain combinations being clearly very powerful, and others being surprisingly worthless.
RvLeshrac: Yeah.

LoadingReadyRun: We may be slightly delayed as Cameron feeds and regains his energy for more streaming
coelopteryx: let cameron become powerful
