Dared00: @TXC2 for online multiplayer games? Not really.
SajuukSjet: DMCA
Koios7: Cheats in competitive multiplayer games are considerably less fun, lol
angryoptimist: Legal consequences might actually put fear into 'em.
SajuukSjet: there's a lot in there against cirumvention
TXC2: Dared00 I was thinking more of single player
TXC2: but fair point
AwkwardBirb: Singleplayer cheats, yeah no one should care. Multiplayer cheats, you're a terrible person.
NimrodXIV: ^
mtvcdm: Just wave that cape in front of the bull
LordZarano: Third party cheats for singleplayer are generally called "mods"
TheSpindash: My takeaway, Be a cartoon.
Tithegha: that's what game warez and crack ascii screens are for, the fame
TXC2: ^
mtvcdm: Yeah, you go on the BBC to talk about it, expect to jump up the priority list.
Lithobraker: In Disney circles this is known as the "InsideDisney" phenomenon.
sivakrytos: talking about your cheats on large media organizations is a very good way to bring yourself to the company's attention
Izandai: Don't fucking cheat in multiplayer games.

TheSpindash: I cannot be held responsible for what I command Paul to do to Beej.
Psychic_Ketchup: We did this! (Note: we did not do this)

Anaerin: INTERACT... MOUSE LEFT... FIRE.... Awww....
orionsrise1: nah twitch chat is always responsible
LordZarano: !listen
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
TheSpindash: I'll have you know, @orionsrise1, that I am very irresponsible
mtvcdm: Any amount of HP can be reduced to zero.

TXC2: the Hero of the storm PRO LEAGUE got shut down
IbunWest: How is one of the most iconic Warcraft characters not already in HotS?
TheWooglie: deathwing is huge
AwkwardBirb: @SajuukSjet never stopped DnD players.
SajuukSjet: oh dear :D
orionsrise1: @thespindash you are still responsible for your irresponsibility under the terms of twitch chat!
IbunWest: That'd be like having Smash Bros without Link or Samus
Pteraspidomorphi: Is that the distraction Graham mentioned last time?
malsareus: I got washed with really hot water
mtvcdm: It's like playing as Galactus in Smash.
Izandai: Something something Ridley too big for Smash
TheWooglie: Dragons in WOW can turn into humanoids

TheSpindash: @orionsrise1 Nah. I'm very irresponsible with my irresponsibility.

AwkwardBirb: Deathwing ult: "The match immediately ends, and is uninstalled from the enemy team's computers."
Phosphatide: technically you can fix something that is broken, but something destroyed would be more difficult OpieOP
malsareus: quite a few people want to like fallout 76
orionsrise1: @thespindash unfortunately now you have made it my responsibility to report to twitch chat the irresponsibility of your irresponsibility and your non compliance in excepting your responsibility for your own irresponsibility

Crokoking: the box only hold only unlimited crafting items - not guns etc from what i understand
red_shoes_jeff: Can't wait to take a swing at Outer Worlds, a.k.a. REAL Fallout.
EvilBadman: The Stash box is currently glitched and Deleting Items, because Fallout76 can't catch a break
zacthesomniac: i enjoy your skits on YouTube
Anaerin: You might get read-only access.
LbxAni: really curious how much this is Bethesda and how much this is ZeniMax meddling. I assume mostly ZM, but we should hold Bethesda accountable for anything they did

jessieimproved: What I actually want is another Fallout single player campaign
angryoptimist: I've heard that F76 has a performance issue with too many items being on too many players, and that was the reason for the unpopular weight changes.
Anaerin: WoW is F2P up to Lv20
LbxAni: just the most recent expansion, everything up to that is part of the sub
zacthesomniac: HolidaySanta
LordZarano: With dropbox if you stop subscribing all your stuff stays there, you just can't upload anything since you're over the limit
VanFlicke: @LbxAni <= what they said
Izandai: Also in WoW I think you can pay your subscription fee for the month with in-game gold?
malsareus: in retail WOW f2p is for the first hour or so
IbunWest: Yeah there's some kind of game time token that can bee bought and sold on the Auction House
Crokoking: Free to Start as nintendo calls it - sounds more honest
VanFlicke: @malsareus nah, it's to level 20 for unlimited # of characters
Kazman20a: and they delayed the expansion at the same time they anouced this
VanFlicke: Corrction, up to 50 characaters
CamelAttack: The difference is that private servers are actually servers, that allow you to treat them as servers. F76 isn't offering private servers they're offering private lobbies.

AwkwardBirb: yeah it's not a fun time when you want to enjoy the game but it has issues. Ended up not playing games because of that :(
TXC2: I mean most consoles aren't made anymore :p
Izandai: People are allowed to like games that most people dislike. People are also allowed to dislike games that most people like.

Pteraspidomorphi: Nvidia used to have a thing like that but it didn't work very well iirc
AwkwardBirb: Parsec also exists that does this as well. It's great.
TXC2: Mysticman89 I'm given to understand thats a VERY sore spot
AwkwardBirb: so more options is great.
Pteraspidomorphi: (I'm in that demographic)
djalternative: Couch coop is very much my jam
Mysticman89: thinking for like the official magic channel and that sort of thing
Woogachaka: I'm definitely in that demographic
Kuolar: It may allow indie devs to implement just local multiplayer now and still appease people wanting online but saving a lot of dev time
Woogachaka: I used to be an RA in college for freshmen and built my couch coop library as a means to bond with them and facilitate them bonding with each other. Man was that a blast, and I honestly miss the experience of a good round of Gang-beasts
Kazman20a: it also means thatonly one person needs to won the game according to the info
NightValien28: oh this
Foxmar320: The microtransactions are way overboard
Mysticman89: 300$+ sneakers also feels bad when you get to the check out, but then im not a sneaker buff

angryoptimist: They seem to be trying to put people with addictive personalities into debt or something.
AwkwardBirb: @angryoptimist more like succeeding
TXC2: angryoptimist welcome to capitalism
LordZarano: NBA also had the advert that was more microtransaction & gambling than basketball...
KevinTheShark: So the problem isn't the microtransactions. it's the false chance elements
KevinTheShark: that makes a change
IbunWest: Can you imaagine playing Magic Arena and the client telling you "Sorry you can't craft Oko because we don't have any more."
LordZarano: It had slot machines! Actual slot machines!
AwkwardBirb: pretty sure capitalism and Gambling are unrelated.
LbxAni: I think they're trying to make as much money as many ways as possible and see what sticks when countries start shutting them down for gambling mechanics
TXC2: IbunWest eh, he's gonna get bad anyhow Kappa

AntiCrepuscular: and then the store doesn't have the half-size you need...
TXC2: Sneaker sim 2k20
AwkwardBirb: @Krauser428 it's not even like digital cosmetics are bad. It's just how they keep trying to sell it in stupid ways like limited time or loot boxes.
KevinTheShark: Perhaps they do this. And then later on release it to the mainstream. And these guys just got the first achievement
EfreetM: Al Bundy Simulator 2020

mtvcdm: The first few 2K20 review scores are in: IGN gave it 4.3/10; Forbes gave it 5.25/10.
Dmc3628: the referee pose bug is hilarious
skkreet64: you look like this guy
Count_Nodonora: hang on, why is forbes reviewing video games?
Dmc3628: yes Beej max relation to that
EfreetM: the conductor is yelled at because the train is late - just the usual
Foxmar320: When I worked for Walmart if a customer was angry managers just gave them a gift card and that was the end of it.
orionsrise1: I worked at a Wal-Mart! twice!
TXC2: "you just lost a customer" "good"
mtvcdm: They got rid of the overnight shift a few weeks ago at my Walmart, so don't yell at us because things are crappy enough already.
djalternative: @count_nodonora Forbes has done video games for years
Foxmar320: All the trailers ive seen have slot machines in it so im assuming thats what the game is.
KevinTheShark: So are we getting an MBA Autumnal Rumble?
LordZarano: Rage against the machine, the cogs are not the machine
Phosphatide: from nba 2k20 videos i’ve seen, the gameplay is also bad and broken soooo SeriousSloth
orionsrise1: I was fired both times for violence in the work place
Lithobraker: djalternative forbes will allow anyone to publish their blog as a "column" for exposure.
IbunWest: And the real kicker with the whole NBA2K thing is that even if you do get the super limited edition item, it's not going to carry over to next year's version anyway
TXC2: yearly game releases are a mistake
Foxmar320: Fact
mercano82: PAX East tickets just went on sale.
IbunWest: Considering they have proven that they can live update rosters during the season, I kind of agree.
Diabore: have we talked about fallout 76 yet?
KevinTheShark: But imagine if they're All so bad the bot wins?
TXC2: Diabore sure have
Rhynerd: Fallout 76 was discussed.

Laurence72: I want an AI bot to do well enough to qualify for a tournament.
SievertSchreibr: Hi LRR
Mysticman89: Ive seen some games deem 'winning as being in the top%'s, instead of being the actual last person standing.
AwkwardBirb: @Laurence72 I mean they are absolutely capable of making those
Foxmar320: Im going to have to watch the replay for the 76 part. Theres like three news stories that all came out today about it.
Mysticman89: So you can get killed, and have "victyory" pop up
Count_Nodonora: @djalternative My question wasn't really have they done it, it was more along the lines of "Forbes is a business magazine, why the heck would they stick their nose in video games review". That's more of a rhetorical question though.
Prof_Poppinoff: The old unreal tournament bots were easily good enough to win

Pteraspidomorphi: It's probably just the AI training us not to recognize them
Lithobraker: Are people imitating bots as a bait to other players now? that would be awesome
AwkwardBirb: I remember my friend telling me about Them Fightin Herds made some INSANE AI early in development that wasn't even reading button presses: It just would annihilate you with perfect combos.
Lithobraker: YES!
Dmc3628: because Forbes now sees video games as a legitimate business? that's what i'm guessing count
TXC2: Count_Nodonora turns out video games make A LOT of money, so being on top of them makes sense
Rhynerd: Now I’m just remembering this one video where two members of a group hid while their third member acted like a bot.
KevinTheShark: Behold. Emergent gameplay
EvilBadman: @Dmc3628 Forbes has been rporting on games for years now
niccus: spy party royale
LbxAni: as long as when a young kid realizes they lost to a bot they don't kill them selves or others, ok
TXC2: this is how skynet gets made Kappa
Dmc3628: that I know evil i'm referring to answering an early question
SomebodyNowhere: skynet
frnknstn: there is an actual "pretend to be a bot" video game, called Spy Party
Rhynerd: “Can we shoot all the humans and then let the bots kill us?”
djalternative: @loadingreadyrun you can force a bot to win. It’s very hard but it’s been done.
NightValien28: I mean that is what I assume of fortnite
KevinTheShark: This is the matrix 4
pyrelight: there's 1 player watching 99 bots playing and is the camera for others to watch on twitch

Mysticman89: adult human things
NightValien28: """"adult""""

jetpixi: Adults are overrated
ChroniclerC: I mean, I'm not ~not~ a child...

Lithobraker: I really want to do Drosophila breeding speed runs now. First to White Eyes, Curly Wings, Black Body phenotype wins!
gravity_pike: i don't know how I feel about Beej marrying a child
Phosphatide: too real, unsubscribe adult life
KevinTheShark: weird flex but okay
DiscordianTokkan: Hahaha
DoodlestheGreat: "When I was a child..." "Last Tuesday?"
forlornhope22: "and remember I AM AN ASS!" -Shapespear
mtvcdm: That's a button now?
Baldrash: Ooh, there's a BLEEP?
IbunWest: Beej is using such adult language.
Laurence72: is the... "evil" button still there?
EvilBadman: A nightmare of glitches
ChroniclerC: The "Do not press" button?
mtvcdm: It got a 4.3 from IGN.
n0t_multiple_r0b0ts: hehe seen so many videos of this one
IbunWest: You would think
mtvcdm: Four. Point. Three.
TXC2: but it has mixed gender matches, so it's all good right? Kappa
Dared00: well, not *every* match
KevinTheShark: I can't wait for bug fueled Rumble
DoodlestheGreat: A buggy, lootbox crammed bowl of month old whale spunk.
Foxmar320: There are some AMAZING bugs
LbxAni: there are a LOT of places with articles online that I swear don't have editors anymore, or have overtaxed editors who can't read everything
noSmokeFire: the W+P Rumble
Dmc3628: actual hilaribad bugs
mtvcdm: It'd be funny to watch unless it just outright crashed.
Invitare: that had me dying
n0t_multiple_r0b0ts: apparently the graphics are on par with games from 2005
gravity_pike: the camera just decides to NOPE out of the stadium sometimes.
Sibwow: Love doctors for autumnal rumble please
Invitare: Love Doctors are banned, aren't they?
IbunWest: I don't understand how a series can get actively worse with every iteration.
Lithobraker: LbxAni Editors don't take low wages for exposure. Unfortunately some journalists do.
noSmokeFire: John Cena is a potato
EvilBadman: they tried to run a Twitch Rivals of WWE2k20 last night
EvilBadman: for 50k
