cheetoJack: I should probably call it quitting time
cheetoJack: Finished 2 of my 5 tasks today, and delegated 2 of them to someone else. Thats not bad
Metric_Furlong: that not nothing
PhoenixMelior: is the person you delegated to actually going to do them?
BloodForTheCorelab: don't bring logic into this phoenix?
Twinklebees: I think that's enough Adventures of Rean for today
PhoenixMelior: I can't help it, after the one guy I delegated to did nothing for a month I'm paranoid
sir_jack_DB: hey hey party people
BloodForTheCorelab: then you threw him out a seventh story window as a warning to others?
PhoenixMelior: sort of
Metric_Furlong: the old demonstration of defenestration
kusinohki: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a critical look at the world of video games.) at Tue 02:00 PM PDT (1m from now).
cheetoJack: the person i delegated to is not likely to do them himself, due to lack of knowledge. I trust him to reach out for help at times. Really if he takes care of some of the work it helps me do other things
NightValien28: title change
PhoenixMelior: cheetoJack that does actually sound helpful

Laserbeaks_Fury: No, it just makes you delete the save
Laserbeaks_Fury: I finished a 100% Steel Soul run
Laserbeaks_Fury: It was very engaging
IzGaige: 112% steel soul is something i've been wanting to do, but have been too scared to try

TheWarbo: 90% of problems are solved by yelling "JAMES" out the studio door
MAPBoardgames: I like that pin on Heather's hat
notBrunoAgain: The music in this game is outstanding
silvertabbycat: You threatened it with James and it started behaving
chickenace11: we just experienced beej
TemporallyAwry: #ThanksJames
SixPairsOfFeet: do *not* waste a single drop of its precious audio
adamjford: quite loud
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: like beejs car the problem has sorted itself out
NightValien28: deaf now
Morendur: I despise Twitch some days
SniperPumpkin: very very loud
IzGaige: i really hope they touch on the fact that this game is, imo, one of the few games that evokes a sense of reverence at times
wildpeaks: similar to Dune, "James" is a fix-word
Morendur: I've just been sitting here waiting for the stream but apparently my stream just decided it was gonna freeze and I never noticed
Morendur: and it happens sooo often -.-
kusinohki: subtitles?

Wicker_Knight: BAAAAAH HUNDDAAAAAAAA
kusinohki: no dialogue?

Lightningbro: Wait what? hornet says git gud? I need to fight her again.
kaffeetrinken89: Nice to see that cam is doing better healthwise. ^^
RiverBirch: Hello everybody
RiverBirch: Hope ya'll are doing well!
jonasjonIV: little feets
CleeKru: your camera looks unfocused... or is if just me?
Wicker_Knight: @Lightningbro I believe the official transliteration is "Gek Ku", and it is not during her fight
SquirrelLord1111: I love the little feets
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: @CleeKru seems fine to me
Lightningbro: @Wicker_Knight That is a shame.
Rekcus: Super Hero Landing
Thagnok: I've been watching the PlayFrame playthrough on Youtube, and I think it was about halfway through episode one that I went and bought the game.
Kain0025: @Lightningbro hornet says "Git Gud" during a very specific moment that I will not spoil
Laserbeaks_Fury: No fall damage, no bottomless pits
kaffeetrinken89: I hope you'll do the sha-sha-sha. ^^
CleeKru: huh
kusinohki: if there's fall damage after that...
TheWarbo: first time "oooh, weird evocative stuff" second playthrough "ohhhhh that's what that means"
Wicker_Knight: it's part of the secret ending. It definitely sounds like Get Gud though, and you definitely do for the sequence after :P
Kain0025: kain00GG kain00GG kain00GG kain00Hype kain00Hype kain00Doot kain00Doot
Wicker_Knight: this entire game coutl take place inside someones wall
Kain0025: I wouldn't say secret ending
TehAmelie: Hollow Knight would be a good name for a pet termite
Lightningbro: More like under someone's flowerbed
Kain0025: True ending is more appropriate
kaffeetrinken89: I hope my wall doesn't look like this ... bit it would explain why it smells a litt funky recently. ^^
RiverBirch: Y'know what the best part of this game is?
fuzzuwu: first playtrough?
RiverBirch: It's MOVEMENT MECHANICS
ReynardWrecca: Good evening lovely LRR people, and good evening chat. Everyone feeling wholesome?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are we the Higher Beings?
Lightningbro: Yes, we are the higher beings
TheWarbo: mmm Souljuice
Kain0025: @RiverBirch I just played Rondo of Blood for the first time after playing this and holy crap I missed the fluidity of the movement

SniperPumpkin: Orange is the bad color

Lightningbro: Orange is definitely the bad color.
misskale: This game has such cute art. I found out my 6 to niece is dressing up as the knight for Halloween
misskale: *year old
ReynardWrecca: Orange & Teal - the classic modern colour pairing. Like, y'know, all the films.
RiverBirch: @Kain0025 That moment when you get ranged swing charm, and start pogoing off all the monsters.
PiGuy2000: Hollow Knight is sooo good, glad I caught the stream!
Kain0025: I pogo w/out it >.0
RiverBirch: which is valid of course
Kain0025: I'm SO CLOSE to beating Pantheon V.
PiGuy2000: That's insane Kain0025
Kain0025: I just need the Absolute Radiance RNG to not be a butt
RiverBirch: But the sheer power you have when you understand how your movement works, when you understand the mechanics
Kain0025: @RiverBirch OH absolutely
RiverBirch: Seqeuence breaking potential happens
Laserbeaks_Fury: the "eternal" Kingdom
Kain0025: The movement is amazing.
PiGuy2000: @RiverBirch the speedruns of hollow knight are incredible to watch
Kain0025: Pogo > dash > flap > pogo
CraziestOwl: Is It Just me or the controller is really loud?
TheWarbo: need to find Maps on the tech tree
Lightningbro: I feel that gate does a good job of showing you; This little bug can do feats of GREAT strength.
Laserbeaks_Fury: katesHeart Cornifer
ReynardWrecca: Dirtmouth, the town that really needs a rebranding.
RiverBirch: Look at how this place is borded up

RiverBirch: ;O;
Lightningbro: Oh good, thank you @EikoandMog and @PiGuy2000
RiverBirch: GRUB FRRRRRAAAAAAATHAAAAAAAAAAA
WitherVoice: Visit Quirrel though, he's the BESTEST!
PiGuy2000: np Lightningbro :)
Kain0025: All of the playable demos at various expos/cons around the county tell me that Silksong is closer than we think
wildpeaks: I love that "old Paris metro" style of architecture
Kain0025: My stream alerts are sounds from this game so I keep thinking stuff is happening XD
EikoandMog: Originally, Cornifer was real hard to find so they made it a LOT more obvious with the scattered maps.
Lightningbro: Maybe I'll set that as a goal this month. What better month than Halloween's for beating a game about saving(?) the big buggy world.
RiverBirch: Thats immersion >:O
RiverBirch: also that
9802: Like the LoZ jgames
sidni9001: <3
Qooroo: I am dumpster fire terrible at whatever sort of spatial awareness lets me keep track of level layout, so the map not auto-filling as you explore is one of the big reasons I haven't played this game.
RiverBirch: You're not here to rediscover a place, you're remapping this place.
TehAmelie: compare Dark Souls: at least you HAVE a map
TheWarbo: I do like the sort of "choose your own level of mapping support" aspect of it.
PiGuy2000: Can we get some bapanadas in the chat?
wildpeaks: the enemies also just don't really aggro at the moment, they go their way and you happen to be in the way
Lightningbro: I'm with the "you've not been there" camp. I died and lost huge progress once, and stayed off the game for a bit. But when I came back I remembered saying "Wait, but I've been over there? Oh crud I died, and lost that."
Laserbeaks_Fury: She used to be an adeventurer!
rwhr2d2: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 28:33.
RiverBirch: *SiiiiIIIIIIIIIGH* Bapanada.
PiGuy2000: there's the bapanada
godort: oh rad, Hollow Knight
godort: this game is great
ReynardWrecca: Bapanada sounds like a Spanish dessert.
Lightningbro: Has there been a translation for Bapanada? It's treated something like "Welcome" but I'm not sure if it's a "directed at travelers" or "Directed at customers."
WitherVoice: QUIRREL! MA MAN!
RiverBirch: Here's a Fun Fact for you all! Y'know those destructable signs you can smack here in the crossroads entryway, that those get repaired by a specific bug!
RiverBirch: You can get a snippit of what it looks like, but its a little hard to do
Laserbeaks_Fury: I love their names don't show up until they officially introduce themselves
TehAmelie: i want a game where you have to fill in everything on the map manually. give your own names to places, and put in helpful notes until the map gets useless and you have to buy a new one. . .
MAPBoardgames: @LoadingReadyRun I have often heard this game compared to Dark Souls (bugsouls), but I don't see the connections. I would like to hear your thoughts on this .
kitsunestudios: Feels a little like a mashup between Miyazaki and Geiger
RiverBirch: Everybody here has a purpose.

RiverBirch: = L O N G E S T
TheWarbo: yeah it's the old "show the lock before you give the key"
PiGuy2000: Long nail + mark of pride KreyGasm
SquirrelLord1111: one thing I love is that you can look down or up and it pans the camera.
Lightningbro: Just out of reach, and yet, far enough to tell you you're not ready.
BrowneePoints: What's this? Cam Cori and Heather playing one of my favorite(and imo) best designed games ever?
kitsunestudios: Do they explain what the currency is ion the game?
WitherVoice: you can get to that grub... pogo on flying enemy. not worth the setup tho
Mysticman89: Kinda surprised to see a metroidvania type game on talking sim compared to a more narrative focused thing
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh theres a very strong narative in this game
Phosphatide: heck yeah hollow knight
BrowneePoints: @Mysticman89 This is a narrative focused game, they just present it differently
Mysticman89: not to say there isn't narrative in metroidvanias, but still
DaMullet14: so I missed the 'totally spoiled stream' part of the intro, I assume the grubfather is secretly the final boss or something?
godort: this game has a very strongly developed world
Forgotten_Lizard: One small detail I like is how the knight suffers knockback from his own sword
Lightningbro: I relate it more to Scrouge's Pogo Jump, but sure.
mowdownjoe: There's a DLC dungeon that really wants you to use the pogo from the down slash.
PiGuy2000: Hollow Knight's storytelling is some of my favorite storytelling in a video game, the way it slowly feeds you lore is wonderful
RiverBirch: lrrCOW
TehAmelie: so far it looks like every NPC will get sadder until they turn to monsters
Pteraspidomorphi: And there are lots of designs
Paranundrox: yeah, the design of this game is so good
ContingentCat: Oo Hollow Knight
Laserbeaks_Fury: We don't go to Deepnest anymore
PiGuy2000 remembers deepnest and shudders
Phosphatide: dear god the character designs of this game are gorgeous
Phosphatide: the DLC designs are just chef kiss
NightValien28: that is the blighttown of this game
Forgotten_Lizard: We dont talk about Deepnest
BrowneePoints: This game is just a wonder of design, and it was made by a very small dev team @LoadingReadyRun
TheWarbo: I do like how Cornifer draws like "big horned head bug" on the map
hippitybobbity: YESSS
NightValien28: hello hippitybobbity, hello friend
RiverBirch: You shall find out soon!
Paranundrox: the aesthetic even
GirlPainting: it has dark souls elements. bossfightss, the souls curency you loose on death
RiverBirch: And your SOUL VESSEL IS BROKEN
Paranundrox: and we have no money
TheWarbo: corpse runs, enemy respawns on saves, shortcuts as rewards in their own right, lore that is both esoteric and dispensed piecemeal
ContingentCat: I mean, people seem pretty eager to compare anything to Dark Souls so
KNACC: the world in decay, the melancholy, the benches that are like bonfires
RiverBirch: Btw: THIS GAME HAS A BESTIARY!

NightValien28: a mask
Laserbeaks_Fury: And it get stringer as you get stronger
BrowneePoints: World in decay, "bonfires", limited heals, corpse runs, currency lost on death. It's very much a Souls-like Metroidvania
GirlPainting: i would classefy this game as a SoulsVania or Metroidborn game ^^
Lightningbro: Yeah, no this game is VERY dutifully related to Dark Souls. There's a lot of Dark Souls mechanics in the game.
RiverBirch: a "Bank" who's run by "Trustworthy" bugs.
TehAmelie: doesn't seem to be stamina that makes you choose between attacking and defending though
PiGuy2000: It is VERY important to store your money
Phosphatide: bank is wonderfully useful
Paranundrox: yeah, the bank is a great place to store money
NightValien28: bank is usefull
Lightningbro: Bank's super good.
mowdownjoe: Right... the bank...
Paranundrox: keeps you from risking losing it on death
Wicker_Knight: Mirabelle is your friend
RiverBirch: It's very important you put all your money in the bank
Mysticman89: buy all kinds of bug bonds
RiverBirch: all of it
NightValien28: banks are good and helpful and good
hippitybobbity: is it? i never used it
Lucien0451: Safest place there is
TheWarbo: Banks are an important part of the modern economy
RiverBirch: Very usefull
Nigouki: should we really do that though? after 2008 and all that...
Morendur: gee, now I don't want to ever put my money in the bank
Jorge4hg: as is tradition
Metric_Furlong: in-jokes!
RiverBirch: Its tradition to put all your money in the bank
hippitybobbity: i just didnt die
Perchipy: Yes, bank is super convenient and trustworthy
RiverBirch: Save your money!
thelamenamegame: Banks are very trustworthy
sivakrytos: dark souls is a metroidvania anyway
RiverBirch: Invest!
BrowneePoints: And all the little Easter Eggs and little secret sidequests ugh this game is SO good
WitherVoice: my D&D character is called Millibelle. she is not the correct class.
RiverBirch: Invest in the bank with all your money!
godort: I think the best part is that this game learned all the right lessons from dark souls
Laserbeaks_Fury: But there have been other side scrolling games that have tried the same thing and feel quite as good
Paranundrox: yeah I'm excited for the next one
Morendur: was hollow knight in a humble monthly bundle? I feel like I might have this and I now really want to play it
godort: rather than just "Dingy world, hard enelies"
RiverBirch: @Morendur yes
RiverBirch: It absolutely was
Morendur: yay!
wildpeaks: metroidsouls
Paranundrox: Silksong is it?
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun oh yea and don't forget that your heal and your magic take the same resource
Morendur: thanks @RiverBirch
RiverBirch: Thats where I got my copy of it
NightValien28: dark souls is a metroidvania
TehAmelie: and Castlevania is a Metroidlike lrrBEEJ
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: so what's our deal here? why are we on our tiny bug adventure?
BrowneePoints: Dark Souls (DS1 in particular) are definitely inspired by Metroidvanias
Phosphatide: miniboss!
Phosphatide: kind of
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou you'll have to watch or play!
RiverBirch: Real talk, imagine a 3d 3rd person Metroid game in the style of Dark Souls
RiverBirch: That'd be fucking amazing
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou this game has a wonderful narrative but it plays it very close to the chest
TehAmelie: who do i have to pay for this
notBrunoAgain: That string ostinato there is also the leitmotif for the bad color
Pteraspidomorphi: Metroidvanias are often nonlinear
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: did we at least get anything at the start that I missed?
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou just a lil buggo climbing a mountain
GirlPainting: @ LoadingReadyRun if you three would together be a boss in a metroidvania soulsborn game, how would your bossroom look like and what attcks would you 3 have? ^^
RiverBirch: Juice fountain
SniperPumpkin: hot springs are so nice
RiverBirch: It's called GEO.
ContingentCat: delicious and nutritious soul juice
Lightningbro: Similarly; Black is "powerful" because some things in this game are black and dangerous, while others are black and powerfully helpful.
PiGuy2000: "White things are typically good" have you even played the endgame? :P
RiverBirch: The currency of Hallownest, made from fossilised shells of various forms. - A Description of GEO
NightValien28: I feel is a kind of mineral abundant enough to be money
Phosphatide: they're geocaches Kappa
RiverBirch: So its fossilized shells
Animefreak369: The currency of Hallownest, made from fossilised shells of various forms.
embyrr922: It looks like ammonite fossils
TheWarbo: It does say what it is; like Dark Souls this game has lore via item descriptions in the menu.
WitherVoice: called geo and it's probably fossilized shells
Paranundrox: that is exactly this
BrowneePoints: I do really think Cam would love this
TehAmelie: say have you heard of Elegy for a Dead World?
Animefreak369: According to its its in game discription its fossilised shells
RiverBirch: Best Character in Hollow Knight incoming
FireBasilisk53: yup that's hollow knight
Phosphatide: this is now cam's new favorite game
PiGuy2000: That is EXACTLY what hollow knight does Cam
notBrunoAgain: It's not something the average player necessarily notices but this game's narrative design is basically identical to Dark Souls'
BrowneePoints: @RiverBirch the bus?
Mysticman89: Some people think the feel evoked by dark souls is unbridled rage
RiverBirch: THE LAST Bus
kitsunestudios: Metroid Prime's messages in the Chozo ruins is similar.
Phosphatide: insert adam complaining about jars some more
BrowneePoints: Oh yea, this game is RIGHT up Cam's alley
notBrunoAgain: For me the emblematic thing about Dark Souls is the end in Dark Souls 3 when the sun is leaking
MAPBoardgames: I feel like I have recieved satisfactory answers to my earlier question. Thank you
Laserbeaks_Fury: You are even given a decision at the end to maintain the world as it is or try to change the status quo for something possibly better
GirlPainting: @ LoadingReadyRun it is interresting that on the map your current location is NOT visual
Lightningbro: I mean, you CAN go that way. I've completed entire AREAS without it when I really should've
notBrunoAgain: People do sequence break by going through the dark room without a lantern.
KydrouKair: It IS full of spikes annd death
Jorge4hg: mostly death
PiGuy2000: @GirlPainting you can buy a compass that you equip to show your location on the map
Mysticman89: is there any perks/achievements to doing stuff without the lantern?
GirlPainting: PiGuy2000 kuhl
KydrouKair: only IRL
loizo4: Haha right after you said "you can't see squatt" my Twitch crashed :D
TheWarbo: GirlPainting you pick and choose which map features you want (via cheap items)
BrowneePoints: Wonderful art/sound design, wonderful character/world design, great combat, it's just such a fantastic game. And the scale of this game is HUGE for an Indie title

BrowneePoints: And Team Cherry is a TINY team
PiGuy2000: I love that the whole team is only a few people but this is one of my favorite games of all time
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun Yea this game was made by a 3 person team
NightValien28: three devs and a musician
Phosphatide: healing in the middle of hordes NotLikeThis
Laserbeaks_Fury: Its a big deal in boss fights

loizo4: You're thinking about Art Nouveau :p more french for you Cam :D
Phosphatide: wham wham wham wham
NightValien28: we all had
wildpeaks: bug zoomies
RiverBirch: its a fuckin Junebug
NightValien28: I have one here right now
TehAmelie: it looks cute until you remember the word "ovopositor"
Laserbeaks_Fury: I have NEVER seen that before
kitsunestudios: @loizo4 One of my favorite periods, design-wise
Phosphatide: i've never seen that animation before LUL

iamnolionheart: Is that a bug or a feature
Invitare: Bench Mimic
Phosphatide: they're all bugs Kappa
TehAmelie: if i was a mimic i'd totes be a bench
loizo4: this zones is very vegetal in architecture. Are all structures influenced by Art Nouveau in this game?
Forgotten_Lizard: Oh shit, the amount of detail you notice after having already played the game before.
TheWarbo: yes his first dialog was the epitome of "uneventful life"
RiverBirch: He lives an UNEVENTFUL LIFE
BrowneePoints: This npc is totally not indicative of deeper things
RiverBirch: He's just a COMPLETELY NORMAL NPC
RiverBirch: A SHOPKEEPER and NOTHING ELSE
RiverBirch: I've give him my money
RiverBirch: All of my money
KydrouKair: No, Sly's COMPLETELY HARMLESS
Wicker_Knight: Sly is Yoda
Wicker_Knight: capitalist yoda
PiGuy2000: I will go no where near leg eater
KydrouKair: Liar!
BrowneePoints: Isn't his name Legeater?
RiverBirch: I'd go near Leg Eater

PiGuy2000: With leg eater I would... touch him with a 50ft pole... and nothing else
RomanGoro: It's interesting that Cam wanted to find a place to "park" before pausing, because that's very much a soulslike trope. And it suuuuuuucks
ContingentCat: Damn the new crapshot is good
EvilBadman: There's no actual pause in souls, partially
Phosphatide: cottage cheeeeese
ContingentCat: thanks I hate it
EvilBadman: This very good soundtrack is on Spotify, by the by
Phosphatide: i definitely need to pick it up finally
embyrr922: There's a really great series on youtube about motivic development in this game https://youtu.be/wzOY3mxTBag
WitherVoice: HK is currently #1 on my overall best games ever list. Want Silksong so much.
Phosphatide: my one critique of the game is that it's easy to get lost in the first part of the game and run around doing nothing for hours
KV1NN4: I briefly forgot how to spell Knight and wondered how Hong Kong was a game x.x.;;;
Phosphatide: but once you break free hooo boy does it open up
Gekyouryuu: ok, now that I'm home and fully set up, time to do some more Iceborne while I watch this
Gekyouryuu: getting close to finally getting to fight Velkhana for realsies
WitherVoice: @phosphatide yes. beginning AND early i City of Tears has a bad case of "can get stuck"
EikoandMog: Velkhana is a paaaaain.
Phosphatide: city of tears is just so huge
BrowneePoints: Did Cam look at the art book?
Rockario: Found a deadened
TheWarbo: Can I suggest a brief look at soulslike item descriptions in the menu?
TheWarbo: (not necessarily right now)
Laserbeaks_Fury: BEST BOY
BrowneePoints: BEST BOY
kynelwynn: One of my more recent favorite games, this one is a treat
WitherVoice: when you're locked in but before you find the way to Sanctum you can get stuck for a while
sivakrytos: he's fast travel
seth_erickson: Playing the greatest indie game imo seabatTROG
BrowneePoints: @seth_erickson Not just greatest indie game, one of the best designed games ever imo
Drew_64: The music in Dirtmouth is amazing, i've spent ages sat on the bench listening
Phosphatide: top three indie games with great storytelling: hollow knight, celeste, untitled goose game
TehAmelie: that's called an "endling"
seth_erickson: Hollow Knight 2 soon Kreygasm

seth_erickson: I would simply not get hit
Laserbeaks_Fury: Sadly, most of the time, I have to use charms for survival
EvilBadman: High level play but there's one-hit and one-death runs and bosh rushes
Phosphatide: getting hit is for chumps
Telenstray: what sort of effects do charms have?
Laserbeaks_Fury: All sorts
TheWarbo: it even has a description for the money
seth_erickson: There's a plethora of effects
Phosphatide: they're like passive ability equips
offbeatwitch: risk of rain 2 has the extreme version in the form of Glass Cannon
BrowneePoints: @Telenstray magic abilities, increased attack range, increased attack speed, SO much stuff
Laserbeaks_Fury: Run fast, longer nail, regenerate soul, auto pickup Geo

seth_erickson: Have they seen the grubs
Vyous: Have they discussed the use of color in the blood/attacks?
Phosphatide: even when you find the person who takes the eggs, they never mention the eggs explicitly unless you both own one and are in a position that you can use it
seth_erickson: and by extension the Grub protector
fractal9091: maybe you just make up the names
ArcOfTheConclave: the map is labeled?
Boiler_bot: Grub pals
RomanGoro: Given this is a spoilered stream, what do y'all thing of what happens when you rescue all the grubs?
silvalunae: hallo
Boiler_bot: RomanGoro I believe it is a natural process.
kynelwynn: @RomanGoro In the cocoon camp here
TheWarbo: yeah there was a "Forgotten Crossroads" title splash the instant we fell down the well
seth_erickson: I'm a fan of the reward
RomanGoro: Was that your first impressions, Boiler_bot kynelwynn ?
kynelwynn: no, b/c it's portrayed poorly
TheWarbo: ahh yes now we first enounter "bubbling water" as I heard someone say it
ArcOfTheConclave: you saved a viking64Friendo !
The_Voices: good thing that was not a mimic...
Boiler_bot: RomanGoro I mean there was shock naturally at first, but I rationalized it.
BrowneePoints: If you are interested in picking this up, the Switch version comes with all the DLC
Phosphatide: wonderful geocaches
TheWarbo: i think the map is the natural way to find a goal at this point
TheWarbo: specifically the thing Cam said "looks like a boss"
AwkwardBirb: @BrowneePoints correction: ALL the versions come with all DLC
Laserbeaks_Fury: So fights it actually helps to get knocked back
ContingentCat: what could go wrong?
seth_erickson: Yep I got it for 15 bucks all dlc on xbox and Switch
kaffeetrinken89: there are also very big things in the background
ArcOfTheConclave: does that look like a boss arena to anyone else?
mowdownjoe: Yeah, the bounce-back helps discipline you to properly space your attacks against enemies. Honestly, the charm that removes bounce-back is hardmode.
Phosphatide: i adore how you walk around reading the map btw
Laserbeaks_Fury: But, if you're like me and you playu this game enough where you just know the whole layout, the game does reward you for not investing in maps

Boiler_bot: A devilish trap!
BrowneePoints: @Kuolar OH i thought you meant while fighting
Phosphatide: he's so... big seabatTROG
ArcOfTheConclave: you can break the wall to just leave
littlejojo14: this game is amazing in currently 92% complete but great watching 👍
PiGuy2000: Also this guy looks super menacing and massive, but he is really just a pushover
Phosphatide: heck yeah heather knows the rock tech
Lucien0451: Remember to stay after the fight for the cutest bug of them all
dylan16807: also worth noting is that you don't fill up your soul orb when hitting the armor
Wicker_Knight: also worth noting you don't NEED to kill this thing

Paranundrox: lrrHORN lrrHORN_HF lrrHORN lrrHORN_HF

TheWarbo: Shaman!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Maybe we'll run into it in Silksong

mowdownjoe: I missed this building my first time through the area.
Nabo_Head: bone bench (lenny face)
GDwarf: All around me are familiar faces?

Boiler_bot: What a nice... Thing.
Kuolar: Love me the music of Greenpath
DaMullet14: Wasn't dark souls like, the second episode of talking sim?
Paranundrox: story doesn't require dialogue
BrowneePoints: This is very much a narrative game, it just does it in a very unique way
WitherVoice: this game is HAAARDCORE narrative heavy, it just SHOWS rather than TELLS.
MillerDark: This is an example of a game that is heavy with indirect narrative, rather than direct, like cutscenes.
Phosphatide: mmmmmmm i need that book
PiGuy2000: The hard-cover wanderer's journal is wonderful
JACQUESEB: @LoadingReadyRun How does one do to propose a game for Talking simulator?
seth_erickson: Maybe will see them in Silksong PogChamp
TheWarbo: Yeah part of the "Souls-like" of this game is that there's a ton of narrative but it feels like you piece it together.
Phosphatide: would you say it's "wanderful" Kappa
Nabo_Head: i say this is story heavy as well :3, maybe without a "narrator" but from a very testimonial 1st hand way of revealing things, with pause and mistery
PigmyWurm: frankly I think Talking Simulator is more interesting when the game is less obviously narrative driven because it is less obvious so more interesting to dissect
Boiler_bot: Lots of implicit versus explicit story telling.
RiverBirch: "Man chat, I wish there was something in this game that had red dressing it"

BrowneePoints: Yes. Very implicit lore, not explicit. It shows the story, and doesn't tell, which is refreshing
mowdownjoe: I think I finished at 91%, pre-DLC.
ewalkedaway: Nice!
Nabo_Head: bapanada <3
AkivanS: I really like how each area in the game is represented by a specific color
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah I'm at 110 too, I think I just have Godhome to do
PiGuy2000: I would argue that this game has both lore and storytelling. The lore is the history of hallownest, which is separate in some cases from the knight's story @LoadingReadyRun
NightValien28: I just did a 100% steel soul under five hours to get all achievements
wildpeaks: Pathologic would be great for Talking Sim, it has wondeful lore
RiverBirch: @NightValien28 You're a goddamn machine
Phosphatide: i'm at 111%, stuck on that last percent for technical completion
PiGuy2000: Wow, I just wrote exactly what Cam said :P
WitherVoice: gathering swarm for the cute!
mrMorphius: yay, Cameron is playing dark souls again
ewalkedaway: @NightValien28 that's amazing!!
MillerDark: For what happens to you, it can be summed as "You meet a girl and she helps you kill your big brother".
TheWarbo: the "certain objects" are very "at the end of this tough area" reward quest objects.
Phosphatide: he's quite sly Kappa
Boiler_bot: Sly is... Sly.
PaperDoopliss: Sly's not here to make friends
NightValien28: can't say captalism without sly
Mysticman89: Sly does not follow the Serge shopkeeping philosophy.
EikoandMog: If you like the Grubs, you can also get a plush of the grub that talks when you squeeze it!
Gizmoloid: "Their currency is fossilised bugshells". What would it be like if human civilisation existed long enough that oil was fossilised humans?
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun Yeah. The lore of who your character really is really informs the story of the game.
ArcOfTheConclave: piece of heart
Decaped: If it's about your character and your journey, isn't that just still story? even if it has already happened?
BrowneePoints: @Gizmoloid that's not really how petrol works
Nabo_Head: nice OST incoming <3
TheWarbo: and we could have read this the first time we were here, been even more bothered at being blocked
Boiler_bot: Just checking.
Laserbeaks_Fury: You say that, but when you get to the water in the City, it's NOT damaging
NightValien28: looks like acid, must be acid
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun This music is SO GOOD
Phosphatide: the path is green
PiGuy2000: Greenpath is the 2nd best area in this game
sivakrytos: well, it's green
ArcOfTheConclave: this path is green
MillerDark: Non-diegetic knowledge?
TheWarbo: i think at some point the game explicitly says this is acid (maybe in the Ancient Waterways?)
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun one fun easter egg for after you complete the game is learning that the name of the first room of the game tells you who you're playing.
Laserbeaks_Fury: This is also distinctly NOT part of the Hollownest Kingdom, this is Uun's place
MAPBoardgames: I can't get over how good the music is.
EpiiMeth: The music is really great in this game
hippitybobbity: the music is very pretty it's true
BrowneePoints: The soundtrack for this game is fantastic
EpiiMeth: It never feels out of place, or in the way
Phosphatide: the sound design is on point with this game
Boiler_bot: Laserbeaks_Fury yeah, interestingly we've got a new bug culture, with different architecture etc
TheWarbo: err, I think it says in the ROYAL Waterways that this is acid. Royal Waterways, Ancient Basin. Get it right, self. :-P
Kuolar: This song is so playful and alive, much like the area
WitherVoice: I love the flytrap plants being named "Fool Eater"
Phosphatide: i'm personally a fan of the sound cutting out when you get hit, makes it very impactful
Laserbeaks_Fury: So, sadly, for the PS4 version, some of the game OST were encoded badly and sound bad
kenyawarren1: hi and I
NightValien28: friend
BrowneePoints: Best Gal!
SohNata: The music feels very Ghibli.

Kramburger: !badadvice
LRRbot: It's just ahead.
djalternative: q
RiverBirch: !badadvice
LRRbot: Sleep with the gun!
WitherVoice: why backtracking? can just go down there
Laserbeaks_Fury: you you go to Cornifer, and then left the bottom way
Boiler_bot: LRRbot bad trigger discipline.
dylan16807: there was a hanging rock by cornifer
seth_erickson: you can kite the flying enemy to get up that ledge but I don't think it's the intended route @LoadingReadyRun
notthepenguins: you see, the game lied to you! what a surprise clever move!
Phosphatide: the twofer PogChamp
wildpeaks: such value
RiverBirch: HERE HE COMES
DaMullet14: obvious mouth?
Boiler_bot: Huh?
embyrr922: TEETH
Phosphatide: teeth teeth teeth teeth
EpiiMeth: Theeth
Boiler_bot: OHHH
djalternative: TEETH
TheWarbo: TEETH
CadmusNix42: TEEF
cgwonder: That kind of stuff really annoys me because there's a big difference with asking players to think outside the box and asking players to just guess
thelamenamegame: TEETH
adamjford: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
ZachtlyAsIntended: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
kerbalized_: !teeth
thelamenamegame: TEETH GANG
Kramburger: This seems fine
RiverBirch: "BABEES"
Boiler_bot: yes sir
kerbalized_: T E E T H
RiverBirch: But no
TheWarbo: yeah the game definitely wants you to think that
RiverBirch: BESTIARY MAN!
BrowneePoints: It's just a friendly serious spider-man
PiGuy2000: Not all powerful creatures in this world are inherently hostile, which I like
Laserbeaks_Fury: You know who else has 6 eyes; The Beast
BrowneePoints: I mean, I THINK it's implied The Hunter is a Spider?
TheWarbo: Kill one -> basic description. Kill a bunch -> the Hunter's notes.
kaffeetrinken89: the beast book of beast. kind of potter-esque
RiverBirch: He has one on your shade.
Phosphatide: grinding this was fun
RiverBirch: WHICH IS WEIRD
Boiler_bot: A stain on the world...
Nabo_Head: I actually prepared myself before entering, thinking it was a boss went for the bench and change charms, jsjsd
embyrr922: Fool eater
Laserbeaks_Fury: Find 10 Bear Asses
Gekyouryuu: if we kill enough things, do we then have to kill HIM?
Boiler_bot: A fine riposte.
BrowneePoints: I believe it's implied the Hunter is a spider yes?
NightValien28: the fake out is great
CataclysmicReverb: arr slash npcs with threatening auras
RiverBirch: The Hunter is...weird.
EikoandMog: There are spiders.

BrowneePoints: oh wait nope I remember his model now
BrowneePoints: he's kinda esoteric
RiverBirch: Something special happens if you fill out his entire besitary though!
NightValien28: there are a massive number of spiders, a terrifying amount
Lightningbro: Not enough eyes for a spider, but isn't it the same amount as a Weaver? Or am I mistaken?
RiverBirch: ^ you're not wrong for thinkin that
seth_erickson: Nosk is a spider right?

Phosphatide: i'm afraid of cam finding spoilesr in that book LUL
kaffeetrinken89: his body looks kind of ... human?
Laserbeaks_Fury: The 6 eyes motif is the same as the BEast, one ofthe 3 masks you see back at the egg
RegulusPratus: That's a pretty great superpower
BloodnBullets: truly a superpower
wujo444: it's not rare, you just forget about it
PiGuy2000: This game is great to play even with spoilers
Kramburger: Cam is a Free man
RebekahWSD: I quite enjoy spoilers, so I know if there's anything that's going to upset me before reading it
wildpeaks: I do enjoy this superpower as well
Boiler_bot: Very nice superpower
RiverBirch: The LORE book
ArcOfTheConclave: Teach us you're secrets Cam!
Phosphatide: fair enough ha
BloodForTheCorelab: studies have shown spoilers improve enjoyment
seth_erickson: Wow that's a crazy superpower make sure to use it for good
coelopteryx: many people have that power but have yet to discover it within themselves
EikoandMog: Aren't there studies about spoilers actually improving the experience?
RiverBirch: This fucking game is chalk full of stuff
RiverBirch: and it looks amazing
RegulusPratus: I got here late, so I was gonna ask about the book
BrowneePoints: To be fair, the Beast is a spider and has 6 eye motif
wildpeaks: if anything, it makes one even more curious to know how things went from A to B
angryoptimist: I, too, have discovered this power within myself.
Metric_Furlong: turns out the secret tech to never having media 'spoiled' for you is to stop caring about spoilers :p
Paranundrox: @EikoandMog the thing is, you can always rewatch or replay something. You can never experience it for the first time again
RiverBirch: Bapanada....
seth_erickson: Hunter Aphids are the worst
DaMullet14: what exactly is the mark of being gormFUL?
Kramburger: This game is really good and making things feel like they have an actual impact
EpiiMeth: Big bush, tiny bug
wildpeaks: so cute
RiverBirch: HUNTER APHIDS ARE THE WORST FOREVER
PhoenixShaman: they look like the fuzzy sheep insects from Ancient Magus' bride
offbeatwitch: i love the big bush bugs
Jasoman: @LoadingReadyRun Why does Cam look like he was forced to go to his So's bookclub?
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: smthg about the 70s
Lightningbro: Welcome to Greenpath, home of... well, leaves, mostly.
kaffeetrinken89: do yo want to know my secret? I am always spoiled ... Hulk reference doesn't really work.
WitherVoice: Primal Aspids. Little known fact... they are actually SATAN.
EikoandMog: @Jasoman I think that's Cameron's default state.
korvys: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always stuck in the subocean.
angryoptimist: @DaMullet14 Well, you know--when you've got a lot of gorm about you. Like, you know, when you see a fellow and think "that's a person with lots of gorm--they clearly know what they're doing." Kappa
RiverBirch: I was born in the spoil, MOLDED BY THE SPOIL.
Kramburger: Surely we should have a sufficiently small enough mass relative to our size that we can walk on water
Jasoman: @EikoandMog Fair enough
Lightningbro: "How am I supposed to get that shiny? It's like the game expects me to just, SWIM THROUGH ACID or something?!"
JacquesEB: are You gonna go through the DLC?
Paranundrox: yeah, the unfolding benches are sweet
Boiler_bot: Very Ghibli.
kaffeetrinken89: btw: What is orange stuff. It is dangerous, but is it ... something?
BrowneePoints: @kaffeetrinken89 yes
NightValien28: yes
NightValien28: it is an infection
JacquesEB: yes
RiverBirch: @JacquesEB That moment when you find this weird torch in the middle of a cave system in the cliffs...and stoke the fire
EikoandMog: @kaffeetrinken89 Oh, yes.
Man_Panties: why u leave Geo????
GDwarf: Oh, that's...something I hadn't noticed, but is a clever design decision
NightValien28: I love that this is actually 3d made in unity
RegulusPratus: I'm a little surprised you didn't rope Alex into this. Seems like his jam, particularly given the Blasphemous stream.
Boiler_bot: Sound design, pretty excellent.
PhoenixShaman: @LoadingReadyRun Which ending are you trying for?
TheWarbo: yeah the teeth are there, but you don't always notice them until they shake a second before biting
seth_erickson: You went right when you were supposed to go left
dylan16807: hornet's pretty well to the left
EpiiMeth: Go Left Keepo
RiverBirch: Find your Bug Senpai Heather, Find him!
RiverBirch: *HER
RiverBirch: *boopies*
Nabo_Head: !advice
LRRbot: No washing feet in cake.
cgwonder: i like how the bugs you awaken from the ground make the cat activation noise
Laserbeaks_Fury: I love this design, a lot of sidescrolling games like this go for pixelated looks and it's starting to get boring
Boiler_bot: You are smol
TheWarbo: we definitely have that "cloak-wrapped humble samurai" thing
hippitybobbity: this is for a reason my friends
BrowneePoints: Moth Knight!
Boiler_bot: A cunning ploy, soldier!
angryoptimist: One might say the we are "chibi".
LiveFaust: Zim sized and shaped.
kaffeetrinken89: Like an earwig.
RiverBirch: I hate Moss Knight
hippitybobbity: you died before you became an adult
PiGuy2000: Lol
seth_erickson: This bug Gamer knows how to look up PogCHamp
Phosphatide: ptoo
TriseAlpha: Insectoid Zim?
RiverBirch: He blocks my one super attack, pogo stabbing
Kramburger: Sir, could you NOT?
RiverBirch: >:o
Laserbeaks_Fury: You gotta save Zote
dylan16807: the transitions between areas are fun to look at
Boiler_bot: RiverBirch the super strat
RiverBirch: NO, DON'T
migelino164: Oh hell yeah, Hollow Knight!
angryoptimist: Will we--or have we already--ASCEND, ASCEND, ASCEND!-ed?
PiGuy2000: Do your piles of leaves not have faces in them? :P
TheWarbo: ZOTE
EpiiMeth: PHOP
RiverBirch: DONT MEET ZOTE
NightValien28: let him die
PhoenixShaman: @LoadingReadyRun I got here late have we discussed the over arching plot yet?
RiverBirch: ZOTE IS THE WURST
Lucien0451: Do we?
Wicker_Knight: zooottteeee ;__;
seth_erickson: All Hail Mighty Zote
Phosphatide: mahmehbah
RiverBirch: ZOTE IS A BASSARD
Wicker_Knight: Zote is worst charactre
migelino164: The best, but the worst
PiGuy2000: Zote is amazingly terrible
Nabo_Head: but we have to listen his wisdom!
RiverBirch: HE'S MISTER STEAL YO GIRL
adamjford: Zote honks so bad
Nabo_Head: always!
EpiiMeth: Zote is the best worst char
RiverBirch: 100% Worse
Wicker_Knight: more than 5% :P
NightValien28: 555% percent worse
fractal9091: maybe 95%
RiverBirch: 100% the WORST
ArcOfTheConclave: 100 % worse
migelino164: Cam, it's like you in the future but bad
TheWarbo: Zote is definitely a necessary character for "let's analyze how Hollow Knight presents itself"
Boiler_bot: Zote has *the* most lines of dialogue than any other character in the game, amazingly.
Phosphatide: zote is the best, chat is wrong
ZealousCrow: PogChamp I love hollow knight so much
PiGuy2000: I love that Cam it it spot on the head with that description
migelino164: This game... * chef kiss *
Laserbeaks_Fury: Great characters can still be terrible people
Decaped: Zote saves you from parasocial relationships!
ArcOfTheConclave: grey prince Zote is the best
cgwonder: Good character design is when Cam gets the personality spot on just from the drawing
PiGuy2000: BTW this fight is great for teaching the player how time pogos
Wicker_Knight: @Phosphatide Zote is like that scrabbly, ugly cat that always tries to knock over your food and water and steals your socks and whines at 1am and scratches at everyone
Wicker_Knight: and never cuddles
RiverBirch: I hate Zote with a passion
Wicker_Knight: and is clearly waiting for you to die
Phosphatide: but he's so sensual Kappa
Boiler_bot: Hi Zote
niccus: six?!
Kramburger: Zote needs their coffee
EpiiMeth: ZOTE THE MIGHTY
asddsa28: i like how it looks like you
ArcOfTheConclave: "You stole my kill!"
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: anime AF
RobotHobbit: You also get an achievement for leaving Zote to die
Wicker_Knight: @Phosphatide don't get me wrong, I know people for whom I would have been describing their favorite cat :P
offbeatwitch: zote is like an old grumpy grampa
Pteraspidomorphi: (We'll be crossing him again)
ZealousCrow: what a dick...
Boiler_bot: Sorry for living, Zote.
empyreon: YEET that Zote!
PiGuy2000: Zote is the comic relief of this game
migelino164: This character is Clint Eastwood's character at the start of Gran Turino
humbletales: he gets a little stronger in the DLC
RiverBirch: He's Mister Steal Yo Girl
silvalunae: his nail is a toothpick?
fractal9091: to be fair, his 56 precepts are pretty funny
Phosphatide: the eternal ordeal is my favorite thing, real talk
kynelwynn: The Fifty-Seven precepts of Zote!!
kaffeetrinken89: Zote is a german word for dirty joke. ^^
Wicker_Knight: it's VERY... VERY dirty fanfic
AwkwardBirb: And then you beat him so many times in her dreams she starts to become sad
wildpeaks: reminds me a lot of Susano in Okami
SquareDotCube: grumpyknight
AwkwardBirb: and doubtful

Lightningbro: Oh, yeah, BOTH of those "bosses" were "inital boss but actually normal enemies."
Boiler_bot: Paranundrox oh yes very convenient.
Staplerp: Kappa
RiverBirch: 4000 Geo
JacquesEB: My fav characters in this game other than hornet are Zote and Troupe Master Grimm
Wicker_Knight: Zote is very much that, yes
ArcOfTheConclave: the good old bank
RiverBirch: Give 4000 Geo to the Bank
RiverBirch: To hold onto
RiverBirch: forever
RiverBirch: until you need it back
hippitybobbity: SHAAAAHH
ZealousCrow: The bank was honestly such a great surprise
Paranundrox: their own nail
Laserbeaks_Fury: She has her own needle
TheWarbo: she's got her own weapon
Wicker_Knight: her dress is too awesome for her to be evil
Decaped: sliksong needs to come out already.
ewalkedaway: GIT GUD
Phosphatide: hornet's theme song Kregyasm
AwkwardBirb: @Wicker_Knight her existance is too awesome to be evil.
Phosphatide: Kreygasm
Boiler_bot: CHAA~
PiGuy2000: SHAAAW
EpiiMeth: Looking forward to silksong as well
humbletales: i cant wait for Silksong
Wicker_Knight: I DINUM
Phosphatide: HAAA
RiverBirch: GIT GUUUUUUUUUUD
seth_erickson: It's a needle Kreygasm
silvalunae: i love her?
Wicker_Knight: I GALLE
kaffeetrinken89: there is a rather stark contrast
EpiiMeth: ADINO
humbletales: HAHAHA, dommah dommah dommah!
Wicker_Knight: @silvalunae you're in good company ;P
Lightningbro: Oh, that's it, "The Vessal" that's the other name that the Knight's known by.
BlackIsis: She's the protagonist of the sequel, isn't she?
BrowneePoints: She's also the protagonist of the sequel!
TheWarbo: yeah she's the standard "i fight you until i trust you, now we're on the same side" character
RiverBirch: Hey Hornet, what's your favorite pokemon? "AUDIIIINO!"
NightValien28: if this is dark souls, then silk song is bloodborne
Vyous: Interesting that when you hit other enemies, they spurt orange, but when you damage her, it's white.
ZealousCrow: This fight is SO FUN. It's the first challenging fight in the game and it's just a fantastic dance.
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun She is part Spider after all, so silk makes sense
Boiler_bot: ZealousCrow absolutely. It's a great duel.
Decaped: I enjoy that she giggles in these fights.
RiverBirch: Her part was supposed to be free DLC
Phosphatide: DLC became too big
Drew_64: I always took her sounds as laughing, like she was trying to push you rather than beat you
RiverBirch: But then the idea for it got too much gain
seth_erickson: She was supposed to be dlc
ghostvalv: oooh hornet
BrowneePoints: Mhmm she was supposed to be dlc, and it was too big. so they jsut made a sequel
Phosphatide: it's like what happened to the breath of the wild sequel
Wicker_Knight: Silksong was originally going to be a side DLC
NightValien28: and not a single person complained
WitherVoice: HEGAAALEH!
Wicker_Knight: and instead it's a full game they're saying
PiGuy2000: They kept saying there will be "Horney DLC" and then Team cherry dropped the sequel on us
Lightningbro: "Stretch goals" Silksong was originally the last DLC, but instead they put so much into it it became it's own game.
ArcOfTheConclave: Herrah the beast
RiverBirch: "Welp, we made too much game."
e_bloc: Party200 bonus Heather *clap clap, clapclapclap*
Staplerp: SHAAA
RiverBirch: His cloak
Phosphatide: yesss dashing
Laserbeaks_Fury: sort of a Rapture/Colombia dydnamic
Boiler_bot: Dashy!
migelino164: DASH PogChamp PogChamp
WitherVoice: note how Hornet doesn't bleed orange juice
BrowneePoints: If I remember correctly, silksong takes place in a new part of the world in a new kingdom yes?
seth_erickson: Mothwing Cloak Kreygasm
Morendur: this looks so dope, I need to play it
BrowneePoints: pllllOOOOOT!
Wicker_Knight: @Morendur this game is AMAZING

Wicker_Knight: Spectral wings
BrowneePoints: Monarch's Wings
PiGuy2000: Monarch wings
Paranundrox: is I believe the name
Paranundrox: ah, Monarch
migelino164: Mantis Claw for Walljump
RiverBirch: And your Walljump is a Mantis Claw
Lightningbro: Mantis' Claws for the wall jump.
silvalunae: very quickly falling in love with this game ;o;
Paranundrox: yeah, and the Claw
NightValien28: yes
RiverBirch: UNN!
Wicker_Knight: yes, it is a hook, but you don't use it combat
NightValien28: it is a hook like thing
Boiler_bot: Oh hi.
TehAmelie: are we slowly turning into Frankenstein's bug?
Laserbeaks_Fury: And if you beat him, he doesn't come back
Boiler_bot: Let's leave him alone.
Wicker_Knight: @TehAmelie we kind of already are
RiverBirch: Hallo Quirrel
migelino164: Crystal Dash is needed
TheWarbo: yeah i love things like that, where like 90% of us went up and tried to talk to him
seth_erickson: Hopefully we can get to Mantis Lords' this episode
Laserbeaks_Fury: Quirrel's hat looks like one of those ghosts too
Lightningbro: Or, y'know, the thing I joked about, just the ability to swim in acid.
Phosphatide: quirrel PogChamp
Decaped: is that a slug?
Wicker_Knight: a snail
Wicker_Knight: or wait, no, it is a slug
Wicker_Knight: got my lore mixed up
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah Unn is a slug
ewalkedaway: slug.
Nyx_fire: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Let's Nope (Ben sits down to play some spoopy games! Game: Moons of Madness) at Tue 05:00 PM PDT (49m from now).
Wicker_Knight: Goddess Unn
migelino164: To be honest, Greenpath is my least favourite zone in the entire game
Nyx_fire: this game looks cute
humbletales: its cute and scary
Phosphatide: deepnest will always be my least favorite
Laserbeaks_Fury: like smear frames
cgwonder: Ascension also ties in with the idea of spider's silk, using it to climb
Decaped: even less favorite than deepnest?
seth_erickson: this game is spectacular Nyx_fire
migelino164: I remember having such a weird time with progressing through. Aesthetically it's beautiful, but gameplay I didn't enjoy it
Phosphatide: just because of fear of spiders
RiverBirch: HEY CHAT
RiverBirch: What's your favorite Upgrade?
migelino164: Oh man Deepnest was RAD
Lightningbro: Does Hornet ever call her Needle a "Nail"? I was always under the thought that she had a "Needle" which would be like a spear?
Wicker_Knight: lrrSPOOP @migelino164
drshellbell: Greenpath is super easy to get lost in
Boiler_bot: So, are the bugs human sized, or is Hallownest as big as a typical ant colony, I wonder?
Phosphatide: 100% perfect immersion, but ffffff lrrEFF
ewalkedaway: @RiverBirch double jump
migelino164: @drshellbell That's what I disliked about it mostly
Kuolar: I made the mistake of going to deepnest very early. That was fun
Wicker_Knight: @Boiler_bot never specified, but easy to imagine both
Wicker_Knight: lightly implied that everything is small
migelino164: @RiverBirch Do Pins count, or specifically upgrades such as dash?
RiverBirch: I was gonna ask another question regarding Charms
PiGuy2000: I knew about deepnest, tried to avoid it for as long as possible, and still hated it
seth_erickson: Isma's Tears I think it's called just opened so much of the game to me that I was astounded how much there was still to find
Lightningbro: @Boiler_bot Tiny ant colony. Devs have referred to it as an "adventure under your feet" at one point, though heavens if I remember where.
RiverBirch: So, in notice of what
RiverBirch: Whats ya'lls favorite Charms?
Decaped: I think they are small, since they call things needles and nails.
Gekyouryuu: maybe the bugs are people sized, as we know it, but the PEOPLE are even bigger
Wicker_Knight: @RiverBirch def. Mantis claw
Phosphatide: quick slash Kreygasm
EpiiMeth: @Kuolar That is indeed fun... valksFine
RiverBirch: Form or function, it doesnt have to be both
Phosphatide: mantis claw is just an upgrade, not a charm
PiGuy2000: @RiverBirch LONGNAIL
seth_erickson: I like Dream Shield though it isn't particularly great I don't think

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, embyrr922! (Today's storm count: 78)
ewalkedaway: quick heal charm
RiverBirch: Quick Nail's my favorite.
Wicker_Knight: @Phosphatide yeah, but that's what they asked for first. Favorite charm was Deep Focus
RiverBirch: and Mantis claw is my favorite upgrade
ghostvalv: defender's badge... I think
Phosphatide: oh i missed the first question then
RiverBirch: First Question was whats your avorite Upgrade Second was your favorite Charm
Wicker_Knight: Actually, Quick Focus rather than Deep Focus
Phosphatide: for upgrades i'm fond of the abyssal shriek as an attack, monarch wings for mobility
drshellbell: Mark of pride for charms, a mini longnail and quick nail.
ewalkedaway: @ghostvalv ah yes, the s*** badge
ghostvalv: :D
Lightningbro: For me; Upgrade; Crystal Dash Charm; Weaversong with the synergy.
Decaped: My favorite charm was one of the pet ones. Just because it was very silly wandering around with an entourage.
migelino164: Favourite Upgrade: Shade Cloak. Favourite Charm, Sharp Shadow
RiverBirch: Okay now, this next one is gonna be hard for me.
RiverBirch: But whats your favorite Boss?
Phosphatide: second favorite charm is definitely shape of unn LUL
seth_erickson: Mantis Lords no question
Phosphatide: mantis lords Kreygasm
Calaban161: Such haunting music
ewalkedaway: Mantis lords/Sisters of battle
Wicker_Knight: Traitor Lord
BusTed: doma doma doma
migelino164: God I can barely remember the bosses
RiverBirch: @BusTed Has said the CORRECT answer
WitherVoice: fave charm is Fragile Strength for sure
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Beware the vape.
RiverBirch: But in the wrong way
PiGuy2000: Mantis lords is such a fun boss
RiverBirch: *Deep breath*
Lightningbro: Favorite AND least favorite boss; The Hollow Vessal. or whatever it was called (been a long time)
Decaped: Doma doma doma doma doma
Phosphatide: mantis lords is both fun AND has fantastic music

Wicker_Knight: I found Dung Defender frustrating, but he is a great character
Lightningbro: "Y'know, you can fight giant bosses, and fell great brutes.... but now... Fight yourself"
migelino164: Least favourite was Crystal guardian, because fuck that guy.
seth_erickson: It's just so fluid and it feels so satisfying when you're jumping around their attacks
EpiiMeth: @Lightningbro I think you mean the Broken Vessel
migelino164: Favourite might be the Mantis Lords, their combat was incredibly well done
Wicker_Knight: @Lightningbro Broken Vessel/Lost Kin is def. good
Lightningbro: @EpiiMeth Thank-a!
Phosphatide: i have a soft spot for grey prince zote as a boss
EpiiMeth: NP
Decaped: I really disliked the Bug Wizard boss, That fight i could never quite dodge things correctly.
ghostvalv: oh ya soul .... guy
migelino164: I need to go back and do all the content again
RiverBirch: Soul Tyrant
Wicker_Knight: Soul Master/Soul Tyrant
seth_erickson: Soul Master and Soul Tyrant
migelino164: but starting from scratch to learn movement and combat again seems like such a pain
Phosphatide: soul wizard is annoying because of how long the fight can get just trying to hit the damn thing
ewalkedaway: I find Soul Master/Soul Tyrant to be fairly easy
RiverBirch: Can I be honest with ya'll?
Phosphatide: not that bad to dodge but geez
RiverBirch: I still havent beat Nightmare King Grimm
Lightningbro: I mentioned loosing a ton of progress and only knowing because of the map earlier; Soul Tyrant was why. I still fear him
Wicker_Knight: @RiverBirch neither have I
Wicker_Knight: true ending done, still haven't
seth_erickson: RiverBirch I stil haven't even beat the game yet
ewalkedaway: @RiverBirch It's taken me about a month of practice, but I finally beat him today.
RiverBirch: Anybody here even try to do Godseeker ending?
Lightningbro: I'm coming up on the second Grimm fight. Actually, Design wise, Grimm is EASILY my favorite boss.
RiverBirch: Cause Looking through that
RiverBirch: like, holy shit
PiGuy2000: Ok chat, what's the worst sidequest
ewalkedaway: @RiverBirch Me!
Wicker_Knight: never bothered to get that DLC
RiverBirch: I love Godseeker for its lore
EpiiMeth: I still need to defeat the Radiant
RiverBirch: But the effort you gotta put into it?
Wicker_Knight: @Lightningbro they are?
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's not really DLC, more like updates
migelino164: Yeah all the DLC are free and included
ewalkedaway: I actually just like the boss rush mode.
ghostvalv: kaching
adamjford: Crack open a fresh, refreshing Stag!
until_may: yeeet
Lucien0451: Menderbug did it
AmoriLinguae: I kinda forgot I was watching a stream, this music is great for meditation
Lightningbro: I presume the Kingdom Locked up the Tramways in order to prevent the infection from spreading.
Laserbeaks_Fury: "We don't go to Greenpath anymore"
SachielOne: It was a quarantine measure, wasn't it?
Rockario: I like that idea, the stations shut down piecemeal as they fell out of use
TheWarbo: yeah there is an easter-egg-ish bug who comes by and fixes the signs you break without even thinking about it
korvys: Fast-travel via bugs; ver Morrowind
ewalkedaway: alright, I'm gonna say it:
Laserbeaks_Fury: And the Stag *hates* the tram
Laserbeaks_Fury: He comments on it when you get the pass
ZealousCrow: I would call the tram a shortcut as well.
ewalkedaway: Most useful charm is the gathering swarm
EpiiMeth: @Laserbeaks_Fury Yeah, that was kind of funny to me
Rockario: @Lightningbro Oo, actually I like that too. Fast-travel being shut down because of an emergency
Lightningbro: @ewalkedaway Hands down. I only wish it cost 0.
seth_erickson: We can overcharm if we want to show it off now
ghostvalv: defender's musk
Laserbeaks_Fury: And some charms can have hidden combine effects
Lightningbro: OH! You guys haven't mentioned Charm Synergies!
NightValien28: its the lore stick
BrowneePoints: The dream nail is also absolutely necessary to full completion
TheWarbo: and then there's like maybe 5ish characters who know when you dream nail them and it's great
PiGuy2000: The bosses in the game also have dream nail dialogue (but good luck accessing them)
Laserbeaks_Fury: You can also sequence break and get the Dream Nail super early
Wicker_Knight: some snark at you, some complain
TheWarbo: "Ahhh! Get out! Getoutgetoutgetout!"
Lightningbro: Many bugs I've dreamnailed that are hostile have made the remark; "....Help.....me....."
RiverBirch: EVERYBODY
adamjford: My Name Is Bug
seth_erickson: Just Like Dark SOuls
RiverBirch: If you're interested in hearing about Hollow Knight Lore
Wicker_Knight: @Lightningbro yeah, a bunch of the ones in Crossroads are like "...afraid..." "...don't hurt me..."
RiverBirch: look up a guy called Mossbag
ewalkedaway: MOSSBAG!!!!
PiGuy2000: mossbag is a great one
RiverBirch: Mossbag is #1 reccomendation
silvalunae: but that's just a theory B)
Wicker_Knight: gabyLul ... gabyThump
ZealousCrow: Gathering swarm is a massive time saver.
RiverBirch: GRIMMCHIILLLDD
Wicker_Knight: there's one that makes you throw bugs that try to eat whatever you've thrown them at :P
ghostvalv: turret
Lightningbro: What's cute is it's kinda implied the gathering swarm gather geo to their nest, and your charm means you're keeping their nest in your pocket.
ghostvalv: waitt... option
EpiiMeth: Rakdos bugs is a really good description
TheWarbo: do we have a goal right now, or has the game left us back in "explore to see what's out there" mode?
PiGuy2000: Nightmare king grimm is the one fight I haven't beat, the fight is so brutal

PiGuy2000: Ah yes, the easiest boss in the game
ZealousCrow: I waited sooo long to get lantern.
Wicker_Knight: @TheWarbo very much "explore and see". Your character has a motivation at this point, but the player is just motivated by curiosity

RiverBirch: Y'know what my favorite Charm is?
RiverBirch: UNBREAKABLE STRENGTH
Kadenus: this is making me want to replay this game
Wicker_Knight: Longnail and Mark of Pride
PiGuy2000: mark of pride
TheWarbo: Wicker_Knight That's what I thought, but I couldn't remember if they had more "seek out the city" than the one sign at the start of Greenpath.
migelino164: Soul eater easily one of the better charms
Wicker_Knight: @TheWarbo no, just that and Hornet's "I know what you will do"
surfderf: cam are you feeling better?
RiverBirch: Speaking of Unbreakable Strength, there's one thing I'd like to inform ya'll about regarding Fragile Charms
migelino164: Though I think it got nerfed to need 4 pips now?
Lightningbro: There's a Charm that makes you make tiny Mini-knights that chase enemies and exploxe, and if you have the smelly charm on they explode on enemies even more powerfully.
PigmyWurm: I often did one or two of the long nails, no knock back, and faster attack speed
RiverBirch: Fragile Charms do not break if you are defeated in a dream battle
EpiiMeth: "If you need a longer reach"; More like "If you need to overcompensate" Kappa

BusTed: seabatBRAIN
asddsa28: im trying to finger out if i should flip spoopfer or have him in a pumpkin which one?
ZealousCrow: I love that that "miniboss" was just three regular enemies in a trenchcoat.
Phosphatide: give him the think hand
TheWarbo: No Steelsoul is only the "spirit comes out" deaths are now gameover
seth_erickson: The charm that gives soul power when you take damage is also one of my favorites
migelino164: Is this a one-off Talking Sim gang, or are we continuing for next week/undetermined time in the future? Just because I adore this game so much
Wicker_Knight: @seth_erickson grubsong
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah Grubsong charm is op in a lot of circumstances
migelino164: Dang, still nice to catch it though
mrshazboto: Thoughts on Disco Elysium for talking sim? Too long? Too new?
ZealousCrow: I think there's something to be said for the fact that a couple of the early bosses turn out to be really unimpressive creatures. It makes it feel more real that you're getting stronger as you go.
Wicker_Knight: same
migelino164: I did the exact same thing. I started shovel knight, took a break to play shovel knight, then never picked shovel knight up again
AbnormAnomaly: I actually thought it was a shovel knight expansion.
migelino164: took a break for hollow knight*
Laserbeaks_Fury: Watching Heather and Adam totally got me into this
Phosphatide: if cam decided to pick up this game for his home stream i’ll definitely tune in for that
Wicker_Knight: @Phosphatide unfortunately I believe he mentioned earlier that he would like to try this one offstream
TheWarbo: Again, I love the "you're approaching an area transition" signals in the surroundings
ZealousCrow: wait Phosphatide, has Cam not actually played hollow knight?
Wicker_Knight: gabyLul
migelino164: LUL
DigitalSeahorse: lrrCIRCLE_SG
Kikazi: lrrSPOOP_TK
RiverBirch: I hate these Jellyfish
RiverBirch: So much
ewalkedaway: same
Laserbeaks_Fury: If you hit them into acid, they don't come fly back
adamjford: and it deals 2!
Phosphatide: the flower run through here LUL
TheWarbo: also note these enemies don't drop geo
korvys: That's a very... visceral feeling attack.
Decaped: wasn't there an escort quest through this area? i have some vagure memories
AwkwardBirb: @Decaped yup
Laserbeaks_Fury: The flower quest
Wicker_Knight: there's a "can't get hit quest". this is not the only way to go though
seth_erickson: The Stag might be my favorite NPC
migelino164: God now I need to play this again
RiverBirch: Man, I have a lot of money here
adamjford: @korvys That's how the game indicates you just took 2 damage from a single attack. Suitably brutal feeling
PiGuy2000: Don't forget to stop by the bank and drop off all your geo
RiverBirch: I wish I could save this money somewhere nearby
TheWarbo: Up: thorns. Down: acid. This room looks great.
Wicker_Knight: that's the bank
RiverBirch: The Bank is here!
migelino164: Yeah that's bank
PiGuy2000: That is the bank
Laserbeaks_Fury: The banks here
TheWarbo: Yeah that's geo on the sign
ZealousCrow: Bank is here
RiverBirch: This is the Bank!
wench_tacular: its the bank
RiverBirch: The Trust Bank!
Lightningbro: The bank is here, it's CLOSEST to the City Stagway though
ewalkedaway: yay... "bank"
RiverBirch: The Trusty Bank! :D
korvys: @adamjford The sound mixing is excellent in this.
Paranundrox: ah, the bank
RiverBirch: Give it all your money
Paranundrox: perfect!
Paranundrox: time to deposit all our cash
Paranundrox: for safety!
wench_tacular: perfectly safe
patrick_stonecrusher: oh man can't wait to watch this vod! catch you on TheTubes! sergeHeart
korvys: What language is that?
Wicker_Knight: simlish
korvys: (I assume it's not real)
Wicker_Knight: Hallownestian I guess
ZealousCrow: Odd. I don't remember Quirrel being here.
EpiiMeth: It's just gibberish as far as I know
migelino164: OH NO
migelino164: NOT THIS
EpiiMeth: But people have tried to create a language based on Hallow Knight
migelino164: Good
Lightningbro: OH NO Poor Willow!
migelino164: Don't go up BibleThump
jonasjonIV: yes. hats a thing
TheWarbo: we needed that in our chat

Paranundrox: bug is cute
adamjford: Does Cori like bugs or cottage cheese better?
Paranundrox: case in point: us
Wicker_Knight: we are technically not bugs
shurtal: God, I love this game, can't wait for Silksong
Paranundrox: are Bugs next on Thanks I Hate It? :P
ZealousCrow: Wicker shhhh
TemporallyAwry: Bugs are cute because they are small - ya' see that coming down the street the size of a car - thoughts would be different.
seth_erickson: He has more dialogue for this area too
Rhynerd: If the head was more triangular like the fellow here I’d find them cute too.
Paranundrox: speaking of, how much do I have to pay for Thanks I Hate It to become a thing lrrBEEJ
migelino164: Does he appear in King's Station? I forget
Lightningbro: You totally can get that mask without Mantis claw, it's just... I'm an idiot for doing it
Wicker_Knight: BEST ENEMY NAME. EVER. gabyWow
migelino164: He's down
seth_erickson: Mantis Lord's is close
TheWarbo: yeah he's where best NPC shows up later
Wicker_Knight: worth checking the Hunter's Journal just for the names of these things
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: hoppity mopta
migelino164: Boi-oi-oi-oing!
Wicker_Knight: @migelino164 Cornifer or the Last Stag?
ZealousCrow: Fungal Wastes is really fun to navigate. I spent a looot of time here during my playthrough and didn't really get tired of it.
TheWarbo: yeah I do like that the Hunter's Journal descriptions get increasingly lore heavy as you defeat later-game bugs
Lightningbro: Can't you already fight the Mantis Queens? I hope Heather does!
migelino164: @Wicker_Knight Last Stag
Wicker_Knight: he does
migelino164: Thank you
asddsa28: lrrSPOOP_PK I got this one cos i dont know how long pumken will be addable

migelino164: WAOW
Ivalenz_: Do not question the Cori.
asddsa28: aww noo
Gekyouryuu: @WitherVoice my reaction is more to knowing cordyceps exist irl
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh hey, it's the Owen Wilson guys
Lightningbro: Usually Demanding Horror is the Heather thing to do.
Paranundrox: lrrCORI
silvalunae: i keep thinking ian is here but it's not ian
Lightningbro: Sorry, Murder.
Lightningbro: Demanding Horror is Adam's gig
TheWarbo: village
seth_erickson: We're pretty close to the mantis'
Lightningbro: ^Village
seth_erickson: An intelligent bunch indeed
ZealousCrow: I wanna tell Cam about the Mushroom miniboss so bad, but
Wicker_Knight: they are the noble barbarians of this game
seth_erickson: You need to go up and around
TheWarbo: Up from where the shortcut lever is, right?
seth_erickson: We fight the big mushrooms next
Wicker_Knight: the Wutai, maybe
seth_erickson: Where the lever was
WitherVoice: UP
Wicker_Knight: GoLeft
seth_erickson: he was correct
ghostvalv: oh yeah headbangers
Wicker_Knight: #GoLeft
seth_erickson: for pronouns
AwkwardBirb: whut a sleepy boi

TheWarbo: bouncy mushrooms...now above acid!
ZealousCrow: Yeah not for a while
AwkwardBirb: oof left behind
ghostvalv: yeah the claw
ewalkedaway: I like Cloth, completed her story arc in my first playthrough, ... just perfect
TheWarbo: But we need an item to go that path! Hmmmm....
Wicker_Knight: one of two ways to the city
Kumakaori: oh right, you don't start with wall jump.
EpiiMeth: The first time I reached the city, it was not through this passageway
Wicker_Knight: they drop sweet katanas....
Wicker_Knight: they're officially mantis children
Paranundrox: Hornets
Anaerin: Mantis Wasp.
PiGuy2000: Note that hitting them doesn't result in orange spewing from them
Kumakaori: mean bee-squitos. <<.
TheWarbo: and they notably do not explode into orang clouds
seth_erickson: Now we speed run to the boss
migelino164: Yeah, they're notably not "corrupt"
angryoptimist: Meanwhile, a bird-bird would be the equivalent of a dragon in this game.
PiGuy2000: They are a lot like samurai
Wicker_Knight: Bretta gabyWow
migelino164: Bretta
ewalkedaway: Bretta!!!

PiGuy2000: Lol
ZealousCrow: Heather is making this all look so easy, but all this combat takes a long time to get good at.
migelino164: Cam have you not played it? You should get on that ASAP
EpiiMeth: I can recommend that series on Hollow Knight by 8-bit music theory
seth_erickson: Best Boss Best Boss
ghostvalv: sisters :D
TheWarbo: man that lever sure was a lot of screenshake
PiGuy2000: Do the boss!
ZealousCrow: These areas take a long time to explore before you git good, so you really get a lot of time to appreciate these areas.
EpiiMeth: Down for the lords
GlennSeto: Oh, TS is doing one of my absolute favorites of recent years? Gotta watch that VOD.
PiGuy2000: It is just straight down
GoblinRanger: To the mantis lords!
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun For Cam, this upcoming boss is the first boss that REALLY feels like a dark souls boss

PiGuy2000: Time to first try mantis lords!
Phosphatide: yesssss
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun Broken Throne is Chekov's Gun
Paranundrox: this was such a rough fight for me
GlennSeto: IMO, it tells a story very similar to Dark Souls, but manages to do so in a way that is much more emotionally affecting.
Phosphatide: god this music Kreygasm
seth_erickson: Kreygasm
Lightningbro: I only just realized.... There used to be a fourth?
Pteraspidomorphi: Oh I heard the music and here I am
migelino164: It's so simplistic, but it's my favourite boss fight
Paranundrox: I had to max my Nal for it
Laserbeaks_Fury: This is where the Steel Soul run ended
TheWarbo: and like, two of them watch as you duel the first one, in a way that isn't the raw aggression of orange-tinged enemies
BrowneePoints: @Lightningbro yes
EpiiMeth: Also SourPls
Lucien0451: This fight is just so much fun
kynelwynn: thin, needle like weapons, long, curved horns. Who else have we seen with.. oh Hornet!
nurovi: love this fight
SpiffGames: The pace increases as you go, but subtly
Wicker_Knight: @Lightningbro *coughcough* traitor lord
adamjford: this takes sooo long with no nail upgrades. love it
BaronVonPoppinOff: lrrBEEJ_PK
TheWarbo: oh right, if you fail this fight, you get the "upgrade nail" suggestion on the corpse run
korvys: Are those other 2 going to join in?
BrowneePoints: I believe Hornet was trained by the Mantis'
PiGuy2000: it is theorized that it is the case
TehAmelie: this bug has such long, uncanny limbs. are we going to ganglefuck country?
Laserbeaks_Fury: She's the Beast's and the King's daughter
GlennSeto: Is this a spoiled stream? Regarding Hornets heritage?
Wicker_Knight: yes
Wicker_Knight: fully spoild stream
asddsa28: this music is pacific for this
migelino164: Something I hated, but also loved about this fight, There's next to no breathing room to sit and heal until the first is defeated. It's like a test of ultimate skill and fighting prowess best represented by Mantis people)

Phosphatide: it’s so fun
Musicsquid: I think this is Adams favorite fight too or one of them
Paranundrox: the first half is I think the hardest
GlennSeto: Hornet is the daughter of the spider queen and the king of Hallownest. This sort of makes her our half-sister.
Paranundrox: there's basically no time to breathe
NightValien28: you should see the mods people make for this fight, they are insane
TheWarbo: yeah Talking Sim is generally "the point is to analyze the game so spoil when necesaary"

LRRbot: Quote #3809: "These cards... I actually need to read them to find out how good they are." —Doc [2017-01-06]
Calaban161: are those random peices of advic or set?
Lightningbro: Both. Randomized among a set
Juliamon: We have a pool of options.
Rockario: Randomly picked from a big list
Juliamon: It's quite long at this point.
Calaban161: Nice
Calaban161: !advice
LRRbot: Don't look in any baguettes.
Juliamon: And !badadvice uses a separate pool, but does have some overlap.
djalternative: it depends on whether it's random or set based on who the puppet master of LRRbot is at the time
embyrr922: !findquote alex
LRRbot: Quote #2266: "It sounds like Alex stubbed his... body... on something?" —Graham [2016-04-07]
malc: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always just dead here.
Juliamon: Nah, it's always random.
Lightningbro: Isn't secret also a pool?
Jazaman: the advice list is big enough that someone ran a rnn on it and generated new quotes that the crew had strong difficulty telling apart from real quotes
Lightningbro: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always alive.
Juliamon: Secret, box, search for treasure
shurtal: It's Spoops Mackenzie tonight, correct?
malc: make your mind up, LRRbot
Calaban161: What contradicting secrets
Rhynerd: Lrrbot is always just dead here and alive.

Rhynerd: Does that make LRRbot Schrodinger’s cat?
Kikazi: !squirrelfacts
malc: I didn't know that existed :)
djalternative: @Juliamon it is quite seldome but I have seen !advice clearly 'hacked' before
Lightningbro: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: a messenger
malc: djalternative: sometimes it is just eerily appropriate
Kikazi: !thopterfacts
korvys: !vaseline or barcode
LRRbot: Vaseline!
Juliamon: I mean, it can be moved to a different pool, but it's still RNG in the pool
Rockario: "How many balloons does an egg weigh" is one of those kinda mind-bending puzzles where I'm sure the answer isn't as easy as it should be
Kikazi: dang, either I'm mis-remembering those two codes, or they're long gone
Juliamon: It's servofacts
Kikazi: oh!
korvys: !subscribe servofacts
LRRbot: Thank you for subscribing to Servo Facts.
TalesFromTheManaCrypt: unsubscribe servofacts
Kikazi: !servofacts
korvys: !unsubscribe servofacts
LRRbot: You are already subscribed to Servo Facts.
Kikazi: i guess requires some for of "scribe"
korvys: !servofacts
Kikazi: wow, can't type
korvys: I guess they turned off the facts, but left on the subscription?
djalternative: @malc nah. I've seen someone replace the entire pool with tell dale. it was the only thing that came up the entire stream.
IsThis___Art: kinda hope they're still late, picking up foods right now
Lightningbro: That's weird.
Rockario: I'm getting points for watching, and bonus points for clicking a box. I did not read what they are for, I don't really care, I'm at 2.1K
Juliamon: djalternative I can confirm that was NOT the only option in the pool.
Calaban161: What are all the comands is there a list somerwhere?
Juliamon: RNG just be like that
Juliamon: !help
TheMerricat: Servofacts and unsubscribing from it failing is an injoke in an of itself. there was never a list behind it. :-)
DaMullet14: Rockario you use them to put badly fitted sunglasses on emotes
Lightningbro: @IsThis___Art I'm sure they will be, given they had to shoo Heather off of Hollow Knight. XD
