PhoenixMelior: I think he works with Nelson at YJ

Metric_Furlong: fair point

ContingentCat: yeah I was surprised there wasn't an extra beat there
2Flower: It's going to be interesting to see this one, considering Cameron tried the game on his home stream and was very unimpressed.
Metric_Furlong: home streams aren't canon
ContingentCat: Oh I didn't see that. Maybe Cori has something in mind to talk about with it

Coinman1863: One thing I note is I read that this game has 300% motion blur in the settings

offbeatwitch: let's rotate the cushions!
stateofcomatose: I've put probably 20ish hours into this game. It feels like a game from a bygone era? It's difficult to explain, like it's a callback to when games were a little more complete feeling? The system is very old Fallout, the world feels very Fallout meets Firefly. What I'm trying to say is that it is VERY good

accountmadeforants: Cameron, did you get out of Edgewater?
Rockario: Fancy, I just use the stand for he WiiU gamepad
Gekyouryuu: ok, Twitch, now that I'm on my laptop instead of my phone, can I PLEASE see more than 2 seconds of stream per 5 minute chunk?
Scarbble: hi friends
Despoiler98: space Truuuuuuuuck
TheMerricat: GDI Twitch, I _can NOT_ pull down a 1080 stream, let me switch to 780p please!
SyrusRayne: I think I agree with that. It's very critical, in a "twitter dunk" sort of way? But it doesn't examine *why* this stuff is bad.
Drasvin: Oh right. Outer Worlds, not Outer Wilds. My brain keeps trying to confuse the two.
Despoiler98: oh god pods O.O
EvilBadman: Drasvin not just you
SyrusRayne: No game sound.
2Flower: I think the game not interrogating fallout-style gameplay mechanics isn't a bad thing -- it's focused on story more than completely rethinking combat.
korvys: The game is one without all the weird people in it :P

Durzo_Blint_: Will you ever play another Stellaris series? There's been a lot of changes since the last one.
jadedcynic: don't get me wrong; they're BOTH good games, but rather different :)
Diabore: i love that "story" is a game type instead of "easy

NightValien28: jadedcynic none at all, played over 40h found 1 bug
TheMerricat: So many interesting locations they've placed security cams....
Molladia: Does this have a co-op option? Or single player only
frozenphoenix7: I personally haven't had a lot of bug issues on my XOne playthrough @jadedcynic
Diabore: @CJbro4509 cam no, cori i believe so
p_johnston: i never encountered a bug playing.
CJbro4509: aah
Laurence72: here to kill our spouse and steal our baby?
FinalShowFilms: There is one particular bug on the PC version that stops progress near the end, but other than that I've encountered no bugs
Despoiler98: So I"m gonna let just ONE of them out
accountmadeforants: The music is a lot of the old sci-fi music I liked, but new. Which is what brain decided is good. (But seriouisly this game's sound design all went into the music, the cueues are on point.)
MAPBoardgames: I really like the blue-collar style space travel (Alien, Firefly)
Metric_Furlong: suddenly Stats!
NightValien28: FinalShowFilms that is the one that I found but it is easy to fix thanks to the games' secondary routes
korvys: Does this screen imply the colonists are sorted by stats? :D
ravenlord_xix: @jadedcynic I havn't encounter many for sure bugs (it crashes the first time I load each day , but that might be my PC). There are some odd ragdolling once in a while, but nothing distracting
TheMerricat: S.P.E.C.I.A.L
j0xer: melee is super bad compared to guns, makes me so sad
Metric_Furlong: korvys it's the future that Gamers want
BloodnBullets: ive heard the speedrunning strat is to make yourself super dumb so you get a bad ending early

MAPBoardgames: GoC had Turnips, TS has Potatoes
Simonark: The starchiest of playthroughs?

NathanJay_GA: for those who've played this, how much time did you take to make your character?
Diabore: only needs 1 to make more Kappa
ContingentCat: I like the idea that as more people name their pets like people more people name their humans like pets
EvilBadman: NathanJay_GA 20ish?
KV1NN4: @EvilBadman Ooooh so it did!
frozenphoenix7: Like 15-20 minutes @NathanJay_GA
Gekyouryuu: stealing a human is traditionally called kidnapping
Despoiler98: we have FTL but still need to be podded?
NathanJay_GA: Same, about 20 minutes here
ponbern: Depends on the resale value
MAPBoardgames: A human is a big responsiblity. You have to feed them and take them on walks
BlightningHelix: I mean, we were just told that it was cheaper to keep you all in cryo than use you as labor so what's this guy thinking?
BloodnBullets: those soldiers clearly did not listen to the speech about firing from the hip in spave

Invitare: It's not the best choice, it's Spacer's Choice

Despoiler98: Wait they arent unemployed
I_Am_Clockwork: *gasp*
Simonark: @Dryhad Yes but it's a good costume worn at a fun party.
Despoiler98: theyre maurauding
2Flower: One thing I don't like is it never asks "Who ARE the Marauders?" Nope. Just crazies. Bad crazies who kill you.
TeamKessig17: KILL HIM TO DEATH!
holidayMD: The first thing he says is a company slogan
ravenlord_xix: @2Flower I think Parvatti asks if/ why no one has tried to help them
NightValien28: 2Flower they are the worse thing in this universe, the unemployed
ulexarX: The game sounds a bit quiet to me?
I_Am_Clockwork: mmmmm saltuna
BrindleBoar: ye olde space capitalism
2Flower: Yah, but unlike raiders in fallout, there's no story to them, no audio logs, no background. They just exist to kill you.
p_johnston: yes "saltuna"
Rockario: "The Hope" is a hell of a name to give your drug
Despoiler98: crap to take!
kerbalized_: a bit quiet
TeamKessig17: Shoot him for funzies!
SyrusRayne: Unlike Raiders in Fallout New Vegas, you mean. @2Flower
accountmadeforants: 2Flower That's a later thing. Worry about murder folk now, worry about murder folk why later.
WonderfulGlory: If you murder him he drops a sweet katana
kat2kool: so they're Reavers
SyrusRayne: Fallout 3's didn't have a good explanation for 'em.
BrindleBoar: vape life!
NightValien28: I mean they are the end result of declining capitalism it fits well
SyrusRayne: It IS weird for Obsidian to nail Raiders and then walk it back?
Despoiler98: We get it Cori you vape *eyeroll*
I_Am_Clockwork: because they've already designed human NPC's and it'd be ashame to wate those assets and not have some human enemies
Cepsys: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 26:28.
I_Am_Clockwork: Videogames!
Despoiler98: Hey THEY started it >.>
accountmadeforants: You don't have to.
2Flower: Fallouts usually have at least logs left behind about the raider organization and structure, maybe how they got started. FO76 for all its faults has a massive raider storyline.
accountmadeforants: It just makes sense to.
ninja_theory_ashrams: katesLewd
I_Am_Clockwork: space nanner!
NightValien28: it will be given enough time
SyrusRayne: They talk about individual raider groups, sure, but it never really justifies why there's hordes of hundreds of Raiders around. New Vegas at least had them in very limited numbers.
SyrusRayne: Here it's more subtextual - people hongry
EvilBadman: Marauder are always hostile to you
orimazer: gun is a powerful and simple verb for this kinda game
EvilBadman: like for no reason other than "yep"
ravenlord_xix: shins in thoat
frozenphoenix7: And of course, you know, you're rewarded for killing them.
NightValien28: I mean you can
NightValien28: choice and all that
TeamKessig17: Yeah, but you can and therefore should.
SyrusRayne: Oh my god
Juliamon: You deserved it
BrindleBoar: and a lesson is learned
EvilBadman: You're rewarded for killing *anyone* frozenphoenix7
Diabore: oh no! consequences!
blip2004: lol was going to say you could shoot them
v_nome: We fell down
TeamKessig17: YAY!
ninja_theory_ashrams: but... what if shoot?
frozenphoenix7: @EvilBadman Sure, but there's literally no detriment to Marauders.
SyrusRayne: I suppose this is what freezer-burn does to a person.
ravenlord_xix: BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD
frozenphoenix7: While others at least "You lose reputation."
TeamKessig17: I hate games where everyone is friendly and nobody dies.
EvilBadman: @frozenphoenix7 Oh yeah, agree

TeamKessig17: A ship! Killl it!
Invitare: Cori appears to be siding with the Marauders
TeamKessig17: Kill it with fire!
BlightningHelix: After all, this is a meritocracy. Your manager and commanding officer would almost certainly be the smarter and more competent of you.
accountmadeforants: I'll add that there are a number of "name written in red"s you really wish you could just talk to. And your only choice there is just to resist the urge to shoot the baddies.
mrshazboto: Just got here - have we gone tax collecting yet?
domslashryan: I found I enjoyed this game more with the subtitles off, and only showing the last line of dialogue. That way I avoided reading the jokes before they were delivered
TeamKessig17: Kill the women named ada!
EvilBadman: ^not a woman
TeamKessig17: Anger face.
TeamKessig17: Sad face.
ContingentCat: @mrshazboto not yet, we're just getting started
TeamKessig17: Clearly.
korvys: Me too, Ada
jkoon78076: hey cori, cam, just wanted to say you guys are awesome.
mrshazboto: @ContingentCat Fantastic. I would hate to miss that. This game is a strong contender for second place game of the year for me so far.
I_Am_Clockwork: I kind of want to start a new game with a character named Alex Hawthorne just to see what happens
TheMerricat: lol
Rachaelneco: 4head
offbeatwitch: potato hawthorne
BlightningHelix: The dread captain Hawthorne
ponbern: The Dread
NightValien28: captain hawthorn #4039
BrindleBoar: like, the sixtieth.
Simonark: You can actually ask her about that I think.
korvys: We are the Dreas Pirate Hawthorne
korvys: *dread
TeamKessig17: This "ADA" reminds me of cam.
domslashryan: @i_am_clockwork Ooh, I like that
KevinTheShark: What level of Hawthorne are you on my dude?

LRRbot: Unleash the Goldblum.
mrshazboto: What build did we start with?
Kramburger: Wait, did we skip the bit where Ada tries to threaten to blow you out the airlock even though you're in an atmosphere?
EvilBadman: One of my favorite lowkey bits in this is continually introducing yourself as Alex Hawthorne
I_Am_Clockwork: @domslashryan "What a coincidence, I am ALSO named Alex Hawthorne. What are the odds?"
korvys: Wait, Unreliable? Did she take that grafitti as instructive?
NightValien28: Kramburger she did that
frozenphoenix7: @Kramburger No, we did that.
Juliamon: Kramburger No, we had that
RaynMurfy: I like that as a way to give your a name ingame.
SyrusRayne: I wonder if the game reacts to naming yourself Alex Hawthorne...
ChiefEngineerMichael: "Work diligently, improve yourself, and you too can reach middle management!" I love that one
cambo212: all dialog all the time
Mysticman89: I would imagine leadership also helps with your chit chat abilities?
ProfBadger: ah, Red Alert Tim Curry's Nightmare.
offbeatwitch: i feel like games that throw screens like this at me are failing show don't tell
Rockario: Like when Beej played Shadowrun and just went straight for CHA
frozenphoenix7: A lot of options, but a lot of them are....mostly meh?
mrshazboto: @Mysticman89 Yes. That and at 20 you get companion abilities
NightValien28: cheetah
niccoli_omari: get that lockpicking skill up, there is a TON of loot you get with it. 35-45 should do you good
Mysticman89: "botched" is a quest section? Oh boy
mrshazboto: Oh god the codex is the worst part of this game
Rockario: But does mining gear have dangly tubes?
Calaban161: Dash Cheetah's Ability
TehAmelie: oh hi
SquareDotCube: Fair warning, this game does nto like parkour that well
niccoli_omari: i wish there was more parkour in the game....
SyrusRayne: Something about the UI: you can change it so it displays (stat-modified) damage rather than DPS as priority.
SyrusRayne: Also yeah this is a Bethesda-movement game. Parkour = parkdon't.
Simonark: After the sheer amount of Parkour in Borderlands 3, this was a jarring shift.
Calaban161: Unless horse
Despoiler98: smart ass AIs
SyrusRayne: No horses in space.
korvys: Oh, this is just delightful
embyrr922: Ship's AI sounds deliberately similar to GLaDOS
TehAmelie: that baby gun takes up i wanna say 20% of the screen estate, so this must be a shootyman game
TeamKessig17: So in other words, we didn't will the ship lady?
TeamKessig17: Unacceptable.
KevinTheShark: "ADA, play Despacito"
ContingentCat: I can't help but read ADA as the American Disabilities Act, and I really hope that isn't intentional
mrshazboto: Oh god we killed them?
EvilBadman: @mrshazboto Through inaction
accountmadeforants: I'm amazed you both managed to get the guards killed.
MAPBoardgames: Today there have been many "accidents"
NightValien28: occupational hazard
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun would it be possible to bump up the game volume by a notch?
cambo212: Dialog is a bit quiet
erloas: anyone else find the in-game voices low compared to everything else?
KevinTheShark: Strictly prohibits dying.... Yeah that sounds like corporate policy
TheMerricat: Thanks Cam! :-)
Rerout343: So, when I played through this, I couldn't help but equate the Board to "Friend Computer" and it had non-zero amount of impact on how I played it.
mrshazboto: I never got this and I really appriciate it
TeamKessig17: So not the best choice. Also, kill ernie!
Invitare: You've tried the best, now try the rest; Spacer's Choice
EvilBadman: erloas I had to turn down everything other than voices in my playthroughs
mrshazboto: This game's politics - the latest state of capitalism
Despoiler98: CRONCH
ContingentCat: w o w
Rhynerd: Stick’d that man’s skull in.
SyrusRayne: Yeah, Idiocracy is about right. It's at least insulting the right people?
Vlanoik: Spacer's Choice: When all the good slogans have been copyrighted so you use the rest
SyrusRayne: That's a really low bar though.
EvilBadman: the time slow down is real good for doing status effects
Invitare: Cori's thirst for blood is rising
mrshazboto: Melee is a fun way to go in this game
CulturalGeekGirl: Good CRONCH
popeworldbuild: Meaty cronch
Dryhad: Idiocracy as in Lamarckian misunderstanding of how intelligence works?
Despoiler98: Oh no Cori has tasted blood!
ravenlord_xix: I'm going to do a full melee run with the chainaxe (tremor cleaver), RPG as a Khorne berserker
p_johnston: melee is really satisfying.
mrshazboto: Hold reload?
EvilBadman: Reload hold it down
Master_Gunner: hold R
ElektroTal: lrrCAMERON lrrCORI
SyrusRayne: Hold R
frozenphoenix7: Hold reload
niccoli_omari: hold reload
domslashryan: Long press reload
LbxAni: same as fallout
niccoli_omari: but you redraw it automatically in the game usually
TeamKessig17: I thought this was an obsidian game! Why can we bethesda hop?
accountmadeforants: Idiocracy is this planet, yeah. The rest of it is slightly better.
TeamKessig17: Also, bethesda is deeply screwed.
BloodnBullets: the pod people is us!
Rerout343: You can do that?! I finished my whole playthrough without finding out about that!
TehAmelie: it's been like three weeks since i finished DOOM and more and more i like just how much care it put into the first person combat
SyrusRayne: I do love the archaic language they use. It's very Great Depression.
KevinTheShark: @loadingreadyrun Cori your hair is looking amazingly vibrant today, did you just have it done?
FinalShowFilms: I've beaten this game three times and never knew you could put away your gun
korvys: Inhumer is a good word
LbxAni: hope we get to Moon man, that interaction is just sadness

Kramburger: You can do the quest in a semi-reasonable way
kat2kool: Ooh truffula trees
j0xer: bog standard collection quest big yawner
mrshazboto: @blammmmm what didn't you like about fallout? That will determine what the answer is.
Invitare: Cori stubbornly refusing to use the front door
SyrusRayne: @blammmmm Writing-wise, it's a bit of both K2 and OldFallout. Gameplay-wise, it's a better NuFallout.
SquareDotCube: Death, taxes, and death taxes.
cambo212: beign able to have companion dialogue in the elevators is top tier
TehAmelie: 'e's got to be the king, 'e 'asn't got shit all over 'im
SyrusRayne: So if you can handle the first-person explorey Bethesda-style exploration stuff, then yeah.
blammmmm: idrk, didn't like the feel/atmosphere, never played new vegas tho @mrshazboto
p_johnston: his quest actually seems to be there to help point you to a couple other quests in town.
Rhynerd: “No I’m not a guest, I’m just looting the place.”
Kramburger: We must protect Parvarti
ReynardWrecca: Parvati, wife of one of the Hindu gods? I think?
Rhynerd: “You got a power regulator to spare?”
TehAmelie: in the spacefuture, we only anthropomorphize the company "itself"
frozenphoenix7: Parvati is great and precious.
RagingTrees: i love parvati
TheSeg: slytqHi Hello everyone from San Francisco!
RavingPenguin: The tone of a lot of the interactions seems like if you mixed patriotic nationalism and blended it with corporate capitalism

Mysticman89: character is named Potato
kat2kool: @TehAmelie potato
MAPBoardgames: @TehAmelie Potato
TehAmelie: sweet
frozenphoenix7: potato*. Lowercase P is very important.
Invitare: Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew
KevinTheShark: And that's when the Plants attack.
MAPBoardgames: Oh! sorry habit. "potato"
I_Am_Clockwork: lrrFRUMP_TK
Kramburger: They're free
ArkhamArchivist: Can we. Put a bullet in this man?
Rhynerd: Yes.
frozenphoenix7: I mean, you can put a bullet in anyone in this game @ArkhamArchivist
TehAmelie: good idea. can we shoot him?
frozenphoenix7: Well, except for 1 NPC.
Rhynerd: Although I wouldn’t do that so close to armed guards.
Invitare: Reed Tobson is not as bad a guy as he seems
Rhynerd: @frozenphoenix7 is the 1 npc ada?
Kramburger: Yes, we can shoot him. We can shoot him before speaking to him and it won't soft lock the game
frozenphoenix7: <_<
ravenlord_xix: @ArkhamArchivist I convinced him to leave town and try his chances in the wild, that way i don't feel guilt
Invitare: Talking Sim is spoiler-allowed right?
KevinTheShark: This is... going to go swimmingly
RavingPenguin: Parvati! stankyAWW
niccoli_omari: <3 Parvati
niccoli_omari: NOOOoooo
TehAmelie: hmm has either of our hosts played through this before?
Invitare: Cori making enemies of the Chat here
Rhynerd: Don’t say no to friend.
TheMerricat: @Invitare that's a assumed for TS, it's impossible to talk about some aspects of a game without having spoilers.
embyrr922: The Illusion of Choice!
punchcard: Parvati is adorbs
Kramburger: If you kill him, you find a message in his safe that gives you the next quest
accountmadeforants: Reed's a unique kind of oblivious.
EvilBadman: @embyrr922 You can absolutely not take her
ContingentCat: @TehAmelie Cam's given it a try but not finished
TheMerricat: @TehAmelie Cam's played a bit from what I collected at the start of the stream
KevinTheShark: Murder everyone?
MAPBoardgames: Genocide route?
frozenphoenix7: You can have up to 2 companions at a time as well.
Rhynerd: What is the third way?
RavingPenguin: Ah, the Adam Savidan method
p_johnston: you can juat kill everyone.
Invitare: well, Tobson seems slimy, but he's actually honest. He genuinely thinks he's doing what's best for his town and people. It's just that he totally buys into the corporate way
ponbern: technically correct is the best kind of correct
SilentOptimist: i never figured out the 3rd way
EvilBadman: Killing everyone is the 4th way, if you want to be technical
couchboyj: Can't kill someone stuck in a jar unless you let them out first
SyrusRayne: Oh no, is Cori going to be mean to Parvati?
TehAmelie: and default is the best fault
ContingentCat: lrrSPOOP
popeworldbuild: Oh no
ProfBadger: Clip it!
j0xer: #bethesda
ravenlord_xix: I love that the companions will chat with each other as you walk around towns and stuff
Rhynerd: Because I have yet to find the third way and I really want to find some good alternative to stripping some place of power.
EvilBadman: i can post what the 3rd way is, if we're fine with spoilers
loupious: shoot her in the head
Roughly21Smurfs: What’s the third way?
kerbalized_: !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 https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips
offbeatwitch: i like parvati
EvilBadman: third way: Side with Tobson and then replace him with Adeaide
TehAmelie: let's not replace Parvati if we can
ravenlord_xix: @Roughly21Smurfs You route power to town, but convince reed to leave and the deserters to move in
Rhynerd: So, you’d still have to de-power the botanical gardens?
frozenphoenix7: You cut power to the deserters, but can convince Tobson to step down and Adelaide to take over.
frozenphoenix7: Yes @Rhynerd
NathanJay_GA: Yeah, you can cut power to the botanical lab, then depose Tobson and have Adelaide lead Edgewater
Invitare: you show Tobson that Adelaide is a better leader, and he gives the town over to her, because he actually wants what is best for everyone
Roughly21Smurfs: Ohhh i didn’t know that was possible @ravenlord_xix thanks
accountmadeforants: @Rhynerd You can strip the bontanical site of power, but then convince Reed to leave. After which grandma will turn the cannery into a garden.
SilentOptimist: i tried so hard to find the "fertilizer"
Rhynerd: Well, I guess that’s the option I’ll be following.
Emergent_OS: There is a way to satisfy both factions, there is a third option...
BlightningHelix: Satisfy is a strong word
frozenphoenix7: There is some....nuance to it @Rhynerd if you want to do it without any violence.
SyrusRayne: Cameron: Definitely Not A Cop
frozenphoenix7: (And some skill requirements)
TehAmelie: now i want to do that Cam tells me
ravenlord_xix: @Roughly21Smurfs you also end up with a sign with a caption that says, "you've taught the deserters a life lesson- never dream" or something like that
BloodnBullets: beat me to it @TheMerricat
Rhynerd: @frozenphoenix7 I assume these skills involve charisma?
frozenphoenix7: Lie specifically.
EvilBadman: The third way doesn't really appear naturally to people because the game is poses the quandry a binary: "CORPERATION BAD, HELP THE DESERTERS"
Emergent_OS subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 28 months!
Emergent_OS: Thank you!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Emergent_OS! (Today's storm count: 25)
EvilBadman: the game poses the quandry as a binary* good lord what did my fingers type there
Roughly21Smurfs: It transpires Cam is a cop and has been on a deep undercover sting for the Victoria Police Department all these years 🤔😂
ulexarX: Also, I don't like that the third way isn't something that reveals itself if you talk to any of the characters before removing the power. No one suggests it
TehAmelie: one of the funniest lines Satan has delivered in any fiction: "I can't tell you what to do, how do you think you can tell me what to do? If I could tell you, though. Mm, hmm, mmm."
TheMerricat: @EvilBadman the thing I like about a lot of the Obsidian games I've played is that they make it LOOK binary but give you more options if you explore. It's on "you" to see the world as something other than black and white.
frozenphoenix7: Many of the faction A/Faction B questlines have a 3rd solution that you have to look and figure out on your own tbh, and it's kind of....eh? that the game doesn't really point you in any of them tbh.
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat Oh, absolutely. It is really well done.
accountmadeforants: So, did anyone figure out what the various handles at the geothermal plant actually do? Or did I just get past the point where they mattered?
frozenphoenix7: They're used to reroute the power
ulexarX: I dislike this third option because it doesn't reveal itself until you've already made a choice
frozenphoenix7: If you go to the computer first it tells you that the handles need to be flipped manually and so you have to go flip the 3 switches then go back to the computer.
kassy_13: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a critical look at the world of video games. Game: The Outer Worlds) at Tue 02:00 PM PST (57m ago).
Emergent_OS: @evilbadman I think, this is a remnant of Fallout 1’s design. The initial build had opposite repercussions of major decisions. Help sheriff - bad, help mobster - good. That was changed later, yet, habit was formed.
frozenphoenix7: Hard same @ulexarX
kassy_13 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 34 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, kassy_13! (Today's storm count: 26)
accountmadeforants: And yeah, expecting to have all the information before you make a choice is something this game shuts down at every opportunity. And once i understood that, I appreciated it all the more for it.
kerbalized_: m
accountmadeforants: Thank you frozenphoenix7, I guess it was just something I did on instinct.
frozenphoenix7: Yeah, I figured that's what they were for when I was going through the plant, but I actually didn't touch any of them 'cause I didn't want to accidentally mess anything up for myself.
accountmadeforants: Though I did end up toggling them randomly at various points, I guess just the first interaction matters?
DrWreckage: But the desire to have the information is not about being entitled. It's about the fact that, in real life, or in a TTRPG, -I- could propose the leadership change even if it's not programmed into the game. The Point isn't in needing to know, it's in needing to know the limits of the game.
frozenphoenix7: Then lo and behold, they're for the normal gamer thing of "X didn't work go flip the switches."
accountmadeforants: Like by the time I hit the computer, I'm fairly sure some of them were "untoggled"
Emergent_OS: To be honest, the dialogue tree moral choice system, or more precisely, embedded meaning, is an antiquated design. However, few developers can venture beyond aggregate meaning to create an emergent gameplay and design emergent choice system. Clint Hocking is a rare example.
ravenlord_xix: I also kept turning them on while I went through the plant, thought it would open an option to route power to both sites
mrshazboto: Get that macguffin

notBrunoAgain: Society should be better somewhat
meagremania: And yet you live in a society!
JellyAndKake: you criticize society, yet you participate in it. Curious.
JellyAndKake: I'm very intelligent.
HavenJunde: also there's no ethical consumption under capitalism so there's that
JellyAndKake: ^^^^^^this right here.
accountmadeforants: @DrWreckage That's completely fair, but the way I think of it is, is that's super weird and the game treats it as such. Overthrowing society requires taking some unconventional paths, ones that aren't expressed in quests.
EvilBadman: Weapons found on unfrtaunte corpses are free lrrBEEJ
EvilBadman: unfortunate*
Vyous: So, I do want to comment that I think this particular settlement was more of a caricature of old US 'Company' mining towns, than the frontier west
mrshazboto: @LoadingReadyRun you can hide helmets in the settings so you can wear a hat while still seeing your face
offbeatwitch: we really do live in a soceity
Halinn: On the flip side, consider this: eat the rich
BlightningHelix: I think you can make less-harmful choices under capitalism, but yeah, there's no choice to opt out of capitalism and remain in society.
TheMerricat: for a second @EvilBadman I was really thinking you were using some high falutin french word or something. :-)
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat That word will never not be typo'd by me
meagremania: As an aside, the sky is really pretty in this game.
JellyAndKake: where guillotine-kun when we need him?
MAPBoardgames: Capitalism sucks, but it is best system we've got.
ContingentCat: turns out a perfectly ethical life isn't particularly plausible, sometimes making an effort is enough
JellyAndKake: hahahahahahahahah
TheMerricat: Communism works, if you remove the human factors.
HavenJunde: as a disabled person, sometimes i cannot make the "less harmful" choices in capitalism. Amazon is one of the most convenient online marketplaces for delivery
erloas: lots of systems work if you remove humans from consideration
accountmadeforants: This continues to be my very recent favourite: https://i.imgur.com/DAUIfmz.jpg
TheSeg: The birds done you in!
offbeatwitch: that went well
JellyAndKake: So does capitalism. British Imperialism alonekilled more people than Communism
2Flower: Yeah, disability means surrendering to bad carbon emissions for deliveries.
RebelliousUno: it probably didn't start off as a corporate run utopia
ArkhamArchivist: sick volcano
Invitare: most, if not all of the colonies are corporate owned
Gekyouryuu: and as it turns out "we chose.... poorly."
RainbowPhoenix06: big mood @2Flower
notBrunoAgain: I mean you can agonize as much as you want about your carbon emissions it'll be flattened out by rich assholes flying around in private jets
Flakyz: just came to check the game quickly, rate it out of 10
TehAmelie: i mean, you can also move to a vabin in the woods and get away from society and die from an infected foot at age 40
TehAmelie: cabin
NathanJay_GA: according to our background we are a safety inspector that went looking for work
Invitare: It's also pretty clear that the corporations have gotten worse over the last 70 years
TehAmelie: i always advice people who dislike society to do that
MAPBoardgames: These conversations are WHY we tune into TalkingSim
LetsConsider: I mean, how 'corporate run' would America qualify as? And if you bought into the lie that corporations are better at stuff than governments, then it wouldn't surprise me
BlightningHelix: But you sorta can't, Amelie. Because outside of buying the cabin and the land, you'll often run into issues where you can't live off the land and be self-sufficient.
accountmadeforants: A big part of why they fridged the Hope is because they're all people from Earth, who never experienced corporations' ideal of "society". Is what I gathered.
mrshazboto: I'm absolutely in love with the fact that you make choices in this game that you likely won't survive to see the repercussions of, and yet have society changing effects.
TehAmelie: Disco Elysuim seems like a great game. like, a game that's too much for Talking Sim
TehAmelie: i still like the name it had in development, No Truce with the Furies

sycohmantice: It talks about the connection between capitalism and an assumption about the world ending haha
Vyous: From wikipedia: Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit.
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat Even when we imagine those scenarios, the humans still alive are still the worst
RebelliousUno: better slowing down time than dribbling
monsieur_squirrel: the only purpose of capitalism is to destroy the atmosphere and exterminate poor people
KevinTheShark: Don't know if the knife is as satisfying as the Rod
EvilBadman: not the Marauders
EvilBadman: no
RebelliousUno: Outlaws you can IIRC
EvilBadman: they're the faceless mooks to kill and get loot from

TheMerricat: that's a hefty plant on that bench.
RebelliousUno: it's owned by a corporation, the currency is bits...
TehAmelie: MdDevitt sounds like a made up name
TehAmelie: McDevitt, too
Roughly21Smurfs: All names are made up 😂
Rockario: The good old "Nuke Town" dilemma
BloodnBullets: that was a pointed and manipulative statement
Driosenth: Would you kindly divert the power
KevinTheShark: If you cut the town off from Capitalism though, where will the resources then come from?
TehAmelie: well most names are based on circumstance and etymology. not that many people make up their own
Wicker_Knight: other times no one is actually a good person
2Flower: Not entirely. If you kill the town that’s it due most of them. She hates everyone there and won’t let them in.
TheMerricat: So chat, I have zero actual knowledge of the plot of this game, we've discussed there is an option 3, do we tell Cori and Cam about it?
RebelliousUno: this is a bit more tricky to make the decision
NathanJay_GA: It's also up to you to dig deeper and find out more
mrshazboto: You're not really getting the full effect because you haven't actually talked to the townsfolk yet. That's why I really like the tax collection quest.
BlackIsis: @Rockario Except, you know with an actual dilemma instead of "punch baby or don't"
BlightningHelix: I don't think this is quite the nuketown situation, but the game isn't subtle in telling you "hey, there's an answer here that's not being a bastard."
RebelliousUno: yeah this is more of a dilemma than Blow up Megaton
mrshazboto: A lot of the townsfolk in Edgewater seem very happy with their structure and safety
TehAmelie: remember The Campaign, where Will Farrrell punches an actual baby? that was a surprisingly good movie
RebelliousUno: Or put a bullet in his face
KevinTheShark: Bullets are good
Kramburger: If you cut power to the town, Adelaide is like 'cool, guess we might get a couple more people'
Wicker_Knight: nor do I see that as all that much of an improvement, tbh...
thomturtle: Cori's hair looks awesome!
mrshazboto: Oh I didn't know you were just gonna tell her
Roughly21Smurfs: Which is hidden behind the ‘bad’ choice though?
EvilBadman: Kill everyone
Invitare: what I found very nice was that right before I was going to switch power to the Garden, Parvati spoke up to try and convince me to send it to the town instead
RebelliousUno: First time I convinced Reed to leave. Second run through I'm taking a completely Corporate Shill Run
Invitare: it really made me reconsider what I was doing
Invitare: and what was the "correct" action
BloodnBullets: I was kinda wondering why they didnt seem to have any control over the companies power plant...
BloodnBullets: it seems the answer is killer robots
KevinTheShark: So when do we meet "Handsome Jack"
MAPBoardgames: "As the size of the explosion increases, the number of social situations its incapable of solving approaches zero." -V. Order of the Stick
I_Am_Clockwork: Can I just say I'm kind of sick of rpgs starting out with "moral binary/trinary choice as tutorial for every social encounter" shorthand?
RebelliousUno: the answer is always Killer Robots
accountmadeforants: There's a lot of perfectly nice people living in either place who didn't need to get caught up in your quest to get a simple POWER REGULATOR.
thomturtle: What sort of build are they running?
RebelliousUno: she doesn't seem fine
Cepsys: "eh, we can always build more killbots"
Wicker_Knight: can you just grab the regulator and leave?
2Flower: No build, I think.
EvilBadman: no, they have to go in
RebelliousUno: Wicker_Knight it kinda electrocutes you
erloas: she's only temporarily dead
EvilBadman: the build is "what cori wants to play with"
RebelliousUno: you have to do one or the other
Invitare: the Power Plant does a great job of turning you HARD against Spacer's Choice, too
Wicker_Knight: boo
TehAmelie: here's where Disco Elysuim shines, with nonstop choices that have nothing to do with morality usually
mrshazboto: Wait are we playing on companion permadeath?
EvilBadman: In the hardest difficulty, the companions DO die
EvilBadman: but this is on normal
mrshazboto: Gotchyta
I_Am_Clockwork: you chopped that robot apart
MikeSmith916: Am I the only person that uses the Time Dilation in this game?
RebelliousUno: supernova is punishing
EvilBadman: @MikeSmith916 No, I use it ALOT
KevinTheShark: The irony with taking the regulator from the Cannery is that the Capitalism will ensure that to continue its existence they'll replace the regulator. So the moral choice in that direction is pointless
mrshazboto: Those barrels are for shooting
thomturtle: I use time dilation because I'm a terrible aim. :D
TehAmelie: there is time dilation?
ravenlord_xix: @MikeSmith916 i use it a ton to line up multiple sniper headshots
2Flower: Is shooty barrel.
Invitare: not true. You see why in this area
RebelliousUno: The board might get a bit pissed
Invitare: Spacer's Choice are basically abandoning this entire outpost. They've been doing so for years
Roughly21Smurfs: Tactical Time Dilation - thawing out space sickness thing 🙂
mrshazboto: It's kind of like shoplifting from walmart. Walmart as an entity doesn't care, but you've made at least one worker's life considerably worse.
ravenlord_xix: Counterpoint- they have been stated as considering shutting the cannery down due to not meeting profits
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun if that were true, why is this an abandoned geothermal plant instead of a manned one?
JellyAndKake: but isn't there a log from the collector that says they're gonna close the plant anyways?
AtomicAlchemical: Or call the whole town a loss and board it up
Invitare: and are literally just wringing out every last bit while they can
BlightningHelix: Send a new power regulator and terminate the guy who ran that cannery into the ground.
Kramburger: Either that or they send people to take the one from Adelaide's people
RebelliousUno: yeah there's a log that says that the plant is about the only good thing
BlightningHelix: Your choice on what terminate means in this context.
punchcard: Town already on the edge as far as Corp concerned
RebelliousUno: the terminal you just were at can turn off the gate
notBrunoAgain: So I haven't played through to the end, but it's a plot point in the game that nothing ever gets fixed in Halcyon
2Flower: Except Edgewater is underperforming since the deserters left. And the Board has a habit of leaving people out to dry if it saves a penny.
notBrunoAgain: And everything has been slowly deteriorating over the last few decades
notBrunoAgain: So, perhaps not, the corporation wouldn't replace the power regulator. Maybe they don't have a replacement part.
CulturalGeekGirl: On the Waypoint podcast Rob Zacny talked about being in this exact situation IRL: a factory that was running on fumes where there was no investment and as soon as it stopped being profitable it was shut down
2Flower: Oops all robots
TehAmelie: Cori "Hates Robots" Dickinson
Invitare: it's not even that it's underperforming. Edgewater is doomed. Deliberately
CulturalGeekGirl: Which is a pretty common story in the manufacturing centers of the northeast
mrshazboto: Buying stuff isn't worth it at this point - but selling and breaking down stuff to save storage weight is
Johnsterkai: first double C stream caught live!
BlightningHelix: In this case "Box it up" might be just leave you all to your fates.
I_Am_Clockwork: "If you don't let us be utter dicks to our workers we won't be able to keep the plant open!"
RebelliousUno: well that's mostly because they couldn't thaw you out
ravenlord_xix: aim for the weak spot
storiers: Having worked for a megacorp irl, they are generally pretty slow to fix things and almost never act with urgency. We give them way more credit for competence than is accurate
I_Am_Clockwork: "Then you shoudn't keep the plant open"
Radyin: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:26:57.
mrshazboto: In this case - "box it up" means abandon you on a hostile alien planet
Wicker_Knight: @CulturalGeekGirl the prevalence of that is much greater in the midwest due to the specific way grandfathering is done in a lot of industrial policy law in the US rather than, like, that being a natural way of handling things
TheMerricat: Given they left the Hope there with however many colonists frozen just to 'rot' away, I seriously doubt they'd shed a tear about the fates of the folk here if they shut the whole thing down
BlightningHelix: I also have worked for a megacorp. There is some stuff I can get fixed real fast. If it involves cash inflow, I can get it fixed with great haste. If it's anything else, it can take ages.
RebelliousUno: mostly the hammer
2Flower: The board had literally abandoned an entire planet to die because it saved money. They will not save Edgewater.
mrshazboto: What level do plasma swords start dropping again?
RebelliousUno: are we playing a character with some intelligence here?
RebelliousUno: or did we go for the dumb as a post version
Kramburger: I worked for GE for 3 years and part of their employee retention scheme basically seemed to be exploiting the sunk cost fallacy
RebelliousUno: because the Dumb lines are classic
TehAmelie: i have worked for city government and i can tell you they're usually so slow to act they don't even know what the emplpoyees are doing
GravetideGhoul: Yeah, the impression I got of the town's situation from speaking to everyone and reading through a lot of the materials was that the town was already on the way out because they weren't meeting quotas and Spacer's Choice was just going to write them off as a loss
ravenlord_xix: it's all robots- The Corporations reprogrammed them to kill all huumans to take advantage of a health/accident insurance plan
KevinTheShark: In the end though. It if is something fixable that causes an immediate break in the profit they were to gain, then they might have reason to ensure its existence a little longer, if cost is outweighed by profit at least
Wicker_Knight: maybe, if someone gets to it
MAPBoardgames: I always liked the ridiculously over-sized wrench as a melee weapon.
RebelliousUno: The other problem is they haven't really had any saltuna shipments for a while too
MiranFurze: lrrARROW
Roughly21Smurfs: Are the corporate guards just robots anyway? 🤔🙃
Invitare: GravetideGhoul It's not even that. Edgewater was doomed the moment they reprogrammed these robots in the plant. They're just wringing it dry now
Duwani1: And fungus
mrshazboto: It's what Saltuna is "now"
Duwani1: Also overfishing
RebelliousUno: Saltuna is a real fish, but it's not native to Terra 2
Invitare: Saltuna aren't even found on this planet
plummeting_sloth: ah, the chicken of the sea... rats
MAPBoardgames: Best burgers you'll ever have.
Kramburger: They're canning FLAVOURLESS rats
RebelliousUno: so it was being shipped in from...Monarch
Wicker_Knight: well, abandoned marginally sooner than they would have been abandoned otherwise
ContingentCat: or at least cheaper
RebelliousUno: but there's issues with Monarch
accountmadeforants: The fish also turned scrawny due to not being in a sulphur-filled hellscape
RebelliousUno: So yeah canning Fungus and stuff
Rockario: Tuna is the chicken of the sea, Rats are the chickens of space
Rhynerd: The Vale has a fungus with a similar texture to Saltuna, and Reed will tell you.
ponbern: Saltuna is just the name of this species of rat
MAPBoardgames: Which costs more, the power regulator or one of those security bots?
Himyul: Rats seem like they would actually be a pretty efficient source of gathering protein.
Radyin: I like that there are more than the two obvious choices here.
ContingentCat: there's worse things for soltuna to turn out to be, rats is fine
TehAmelie: i was a janitor at city hall, actually. the prominent figure in my city's politics was the kind of guy who had an axe resting against his desktop computer in case of error
I_Am_Clockwork: I think this situation bugs me because it smaks of Philosophy puzzle style of "It's like this because it's an interesting question, realistic logic be damned"
plummeting_sloth: also, lot of corpses
Kramburger: I think the reason the bots are attacking people is because they are cheap
accountmadeforants: There are buttons to tell Parvati to kill in the bottom left.
Gekyouryuu: sic 'em!
RebelliousUno: well here the robutts have malfunctioned
LetsConsider: Have you heard of the cops who tazed some kids for avoiding fare? The fare was like 1/4th the cost of the taser cartridge
MAPBoardgames: That knife is now impossibly dull
Invitare: I don't know if Cori will find the log, but basically the Power Plant was the only profitable thing on Edgewater, so Spacer's Choice took out a massive insurance policy on it, the send it some "security robots" that "went haywire"
mrshazboto: @accountmadeforants they don't have inspiration at 20 so they can't press the "pavarti, kill" button yet
XYZ_INSANE: Just got here! How's the day going? Whatcha playing?
InquisitorGaia: oh cool ive done this part
RebelliousUno: So did you do the thing with the mechanised scout?
RebelliousUno: in the junkyard
mrshazboto: @RebelliousUno nope, they beelined here
InquisitorGaia: @XYZ_INSANE this is The Outer Worlds
Wicker_Knight: did the robutts lose?
plummeting_sloth: surely we can cobble together what we need from all these various deadly deadly robots
RebelliousUno: mrshazboto ah fair enough
accountmadeforants: mrshazboto Ah, I hadn't realized. I suppose I did do a lot of solo axe murdering before realizing/unlocking those buttons.
BlightningHelix: You know, the thing that always jumps into my brain regarding interstellar travel. Just imagine what kind of stuff we're going to bring to other worlds if we explore them just by accident.
Radyin: Did they talk to the deserters?

Duven60: moral of the story: never let a corp over insure you
Invitare: it doesn't really run itself. The control console states that it's only at 22% power output. It's falling apart
BlightningHelix: Like, we might infect planets with mice and rats just because, well, they can get on a ship.
mrshazboto: @accountmadeforants yeah I wrote off the companion abilities until I realized that they were basically buttons you got to press every 15 seconds or so that said "delete this thing in particular"
RebelliousUno: Unexpected Enemy in the Shooting area
I_Am_Clockwork: weapon is looking a mite damaged there, spacer
InquisitorGaia: might want to consider repair
accountmadeforants: mrshazboto They've never worked as "delete" buttons for me so far, but they do work as very effective knockdown effects while I chop something else to bits.
RebelliousUno: in normal you can get away with a damaged weapon for a good while
ravenlord_xix: aim for the blue light on the chest
ReynardWrecca: That knife looked like the one EVA-2 uses against the swimmy Angel.
I_Am_Clockwork: good old bullet hose
accountmadeforants: But then I'm fairly sure I went to planets in the wrong order.
InquisitorGaia: used all the small bullets eh
TehAmelie: baby gun should not run out of ammo
XYZ_INSANE: Cam, brew an pioneer decks?
mrshazboto: @RebelliousUno really? My hunting rifle seems to drain super fast even with the perk to reduce durability loss
EvilBadman: companions don't use ammo and their guns never degrade. give 'em the biggest stuff.
Radyin: I’m guessing that we are not on Supernova.
RebelliousUno: mrshazboto yeah in normal I never found it really affected anything too much
InquisitorGaia: @Radyin sure doesnt look it
RebelliousUno: but then I had a high eng character in that play through
RebelliousUno: so maybe that affects things
ravenlord_xix: @mrshazboto I think the more powerfull guns degrade faster. i've noticed even my high level rifle drops fairly quick
Radyin: @inquisitorgaia Parvati still being alive is a good sign.
accountmadeforants: Anything above Normal difficulty level is silly in this game.
Gekyouryuu: playing on the hardest difficulty? what are we, Cam at home or Adam at any time?
I_Am_Clockwork: the Combat in this game is... fine?
I_Am_Clockwork: kinda bland?
RebelliousUno: Hard is more challenging combat than Normal
TehAmelie: does Nightmare mean enemies respawn after 15 seconds?
RebelliousUno: Supernova is just pointlessly punishing
Kyir: Everything just becomes bullet sponges usually
mrshazboto: @RebelliousUno I'm really just sad they never explain the armor formula to you and how it's additive rather than multiplicative. It actually doesn't matter what you wear up until a certain point and I wish I knew that before getting rid of most of my light armor.
KevinTheShark: I often prefer playing games for the story and the choices and puzzles rather than the combat
Roughly21Smurfs: This is story with combat not combat with story totally
I_Am_Clockwork: I don't know that making the enemies tougher to kill doesn't seem like it would fix my problems with the combat
RebelliousUno: I'd like some of the food mechanics without the permadeath of companions

InquisitorGaia: @Radyin that is to true, one might also notice theyre going through enemies like butter
plummeting_sloth: Phantom of the Cannery is where Andrew Lloyd Webber really went downhill
pratorious420: rude
ArcOfTheConclave: ramp up hit points as dificulty is the worst
mrshazboto: @ravenlord_xix could be the case. It isn't as big of a deal with how often you find benches, but it's noticeable
Rerout343: My only complaint with the difficulty settings in this game is that all of the "survival" options are locked to the hardest combat difficulty.
ReynardWrecca: Don't boil sprats! Grill them!
RebelliousUno: mrshazboto I'd like it too if Tinker costs didn't get so prohibitevly expensive
TheMerricat: Here's where I have to head out. Night chat, night Cam and Cori! :-)
BlightningHelix: I'm sorry, what?
ContingentCat: u
Juliamon: I like this guy.
RebelliousUno: Upgrading everyone's starter armour would be awesome

Invitare: Cystypig
ContingentCat: Cyctypig ?
RebelliousUno: Cystypig
Frostwriter111: Chairman of the Board?
accountmadeforants: Simply put, increasing difficulty in this game seems way beyond the point. But there may well be a "build"(?) that makes sense of them.
RebelliousUno: tasty tumours
Invitare: maybe you'll get the Cystypig loading screen
ContingentCat: UM
ContingentCat: Yuk
I_Am_Clockwork: meat apples! mmmmm
ReynardWrecca: That...is effing horrifying.
mrshazboto: The tumors taste like chicken apparently
Conrii: Great, I hate it.
GravetideGhoul: Perfectly healthy
InquisitorGaia: @TehAmelie i always ingest my daily does of mercury, dont you know the reccomended daily does of mercury is 0.0000 mg
RebelliousUno: it's not the wurst until it's boarst wurst
Grevas13: that's delightfully terrible
ChiefEngineerMichael: Vomit! Vomitvomitvomitvomitvomit!
Angnor33: Tasty and Efficient!
ReflectiveGamer: for a second there, you looked like a preist. whew.
TehAmelie: sounda about right
ContingentCat: uhhh?
Radyin: lrrHAM
Rhynerd: Why kill a pig for meat when you can make the tastiest meat a removable tumor?
ponbern: so the pus would just be natural special sauce?
Kyir: In The Space Merchants, doesn't one company get all their "chicken" from one giant tumor that they constantly feed and shave chunks off of?
Invitare: is Cystypig vegetarian? It doesn't matter.
Grevas13: like, if you want to get across that this is a shitsack world, cystypigs are a good illustration of that.
RebelliousUno: and when you see them
RebelliousUno: you're like...yeah that's what I thought they'd look like
Radyin: I like the word “tycoonery.”

BrokenGolem: lrrSPOOP_HF
ReynardWrecca: This is an unsettling conversation.
ContingentCat: yeah just from the word I could tell it wasn't great
RebelliousUno: *hurrrkk*
Juliamon: Capri Swine
Cepsys: clip?
Radyin: Do you stomp them like wine grapes?
BrokenGolem: katesNope
ravenlord_xix: try the Boart Wurst, the add makes it look like the lady is peeling flabs of meat off a giant dog

ravenlord_xix: lrrCameron
TehAmelie: like, only me and one other guy volunteered to try the mercury
ravenlord_xix: lrrCAMERON
Frostwriter111: rewarded for being a good person
InquisitorGaia: me?
RebelliousUno: now you have to go and justify your actions
PunkRockZoologist: Legit feeling kinda sick now after the Cystypig discussion. Thanks for that.
Grevas13: @TehAmelie you don't seem crazy, so it probably worked out.
ContingentCat: our old rival, consequenses
MAPBoardgames: I gained karma for killing that dude, therefore he was a badsman.
BaronVonPoppinOff: I always feel the right answer is to wait; if Edgewater would collapse without interference anyways...
RebelliousUno: welp
ravenlord_xix: you can turn it off
TehAmelie: i do have certified mental illness
GravetideGhoul: As soon as Cam said the word popping, that's when I wanted out
Juliamon: At least you found out quickly
ContingentCat: that's one way to find out
BloodnBullets: functioning as intended
BlightningHelix: That would be a fitting end, kill off a town and then just die on a fence.
RebelliousUno: I love Titus Androidicus
CapnRobert: lol
TheAlanHeffley: theres one for the highlight reel
mrshazboto: Have they encountered the debuff system yet?
ponbern: I'm sure her insides are now Cam
RebelliousUno: popping off...just like a cystypig...
ContingentCat: @RebelliousUno ew no
KaosBODMAN: you have to redo your skills now?
mrshazboto: TTD recharge rate is real good
KaosBODMAN: looks like
TehAmelie: just to check, who here has reaad Oryx & Crake? aside from Cameron
RebelliousUno: yeha I think the skills didn't apply
ravenlord_xix: speaking of bioshock, I feel like this game blends some of the good bioshock aesthetic, especially in the advertisments
Radyin: I think you canceled your skill points.
I_Am_Clockwork: @ravenlord_xix yeah the vending machines are Very Bioshiock
RebelliousUno: It's bioshock + Fallout to me
InquisitorGaia: this isnt oblivion you cant jump on it
DoodlestheGreat: Really.
Grevas13: no skyrimjobs here.
EvilBadman: There's a Respec on the ship, and it's like 50 credits the first time
KaosBODMAN: no jet pack or ability to climb? lame
RobotInProgress: Thats not very skyrim of you
RebelliousUno: Fast travel...100 feet
EvilBadman: Fast travelling is the best, there's no respawns
Rhynerd: No lemons for you.
AtomicAlchemical: Walk through the rock formations... what do you take this for Cam? A Bethesda game?
ravenlord_xix: @I_Am_Clockwork Welcome to the Circus of Values! Note: Spacers Choice does not gaurentee any value, nor any resemblance to a circus
InquisitorGaia: theyre apples @Rhynerd
TehAmelie: what? a beautifully animated fruit tree but you can't eat from it? is this the garden of Eden?
ContingentCat: well that wouldn't be very nice
RebelliousUno: we wanted a power regulator
Invitare: I think Cori is about to leave without talking to anyone
RainbowPhoenix06: boy she's a self righteous piece of work
Invitare: I'm getting the impression that Cori is the personification of Chaotic Neutral
Rhynerd: @inquisitorgaia oh
Duwani1: you can fix all of this too
ContingentCat: kthxbye
RobotInProgress: Neutral is a relative term
InquisitorGaia: also sorry if i was an asshole @Rhynerd im super high
MAPBoardgames: Traveling by map is the fastest.
BlightningHelix: I think there is only one term to describe what we've done here.
NathanJay_GA: as, we didn't get the second companion
BlightningHelix: Space Asshole.
Rockario: Parvati's like "Oh *this* is your ship? Yeah, that power regulator was totally worth it"
NathanJay_GA: *aw
I_Am_Clockwork: If you give power to the Deserters, it's implied that she is willing to let the Edgewater people starve/die because she hates the mayor because her son died in the factory
ReynardWrecca: Take her. She's lovely.
RebelliousUno: which one
RebelliousUno: there's several
Grevas13: so, she's just kaylee from firefly?
accountmadeforants: I do appreciate Cori stretching the limit of what this game tolerates as moral.
ravenlord_xix: Now, for an important question: Parvatti > Kaylee Fry?
JellyAndKake: yeah and max is just Book
I_Am_Clockwork: oh did we not meat the Vicar?
mrshazboto: Oh wow yeah we skipped right by daddy bible thumper
EvilBadman: Vicar Max is VERY MUCH not book from Firefly.
plummeting_sloth: damn spassholes
Duwani1: no vicar sad but hey
NathanJay_GA: fyi, if you want to watch a scene where a vicar beats up a hobo because a book is written in Grench, then this is the game for you
ravenlord_xix: engine room, up ladder
Rhynerd: My youtube reocmmendations tell me there’s a Space Station 13 song called Space Asshole
RebelliousUno: Max is totally a space asshole imo
mrshazboto: Vicar Max grew on me...until he didn't
InquisitorGaia: did you turn the quest in to bowler hat guy?
MAPBoardgames: This is totally my ship. I'm not lost. No sir ee!
Invitare: Vicar Max *says* he worked in a Prison. I'm pretty sure he was a prisoner though
NathanJay_GA: *French
ravenlord_xix: literally it seems
NathanJay_GA: stupid keyboard, what even is Grench?
RebelliousUno: but he has the best line sometimes
Batyn: Change your quest tracking
RebelliousUno: it's in fucking FRENCH!
ContingentCat: gee I wonder if the people who made this likes firefly
EvilBadman: Nyoka has the best lines. :p
ravenlord_xix: who wouldn't like firefly?
Kramburger: I feel like Mass Effect's asshole options are more like "I'm trying to save all of our lives and I don't have time for this/need this more than you do"
CulturalGeekGirl: Wow, the fact that they let you skip SO MUCH Of this is AMAZING
MAPBoardgames: Are those oars on your space ship?
RebelliousUno: I feel there's a lot of Futurama references here too
cmdrud87: it's fine, they 'Re Canadian, French is like their mother tongue :p

BlightningHelix: @Rhynerd the song in question is Chris Remo song from Idle Thumbs, about Red Faction. People from SS13 servers just realized "yeah this works for our game."
NightValien28: drippage?
BasilHunter: reminds me alot of Firefly/Serenity
Duwani1: I do like that you can in fact kill everyone - I don't but you can
Officinalis: Yeet the rich.
accountmadeforants: The brightest minds, like Dirt Farmers, and you!
ContingentCat: sounds fun
ravenlord_xix: it's a wonderful cross country run, just make sure you have tons of ammo and health kits
CapnRobert: get a real doc brown feeling from this guy
Mysticman89: not sponsored by kitkat
EvilBadman: I can't wait to see what potato gets up to on the groundbreaker
RebelliousUno: alright Chat, I'm going to head to bed and try not to think too hard about Cystypigs
Officinalis: Holographic Shroud, two colorless: Holographic Shroud enters the battlefield with two energy counters. 1: Equip. Remove an energy counter. Equipped creature gets shroud until end of turn.

ContingentCat: the 8th
Invitare: what are you talking about? It's already Fugi's shift
InquisitorGaia: oh i thought it was the 6th for somereason

InquisitorGaia: i guess
ContingentCat: in DB related news, the shirt's availible
kat2kool: jonny's late for his shift already *shakes head*
Invitare: DB always starts on Friday. Except when it started on Saturday
Firnsarwen: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:57:47.
Invitare: the point is, it's a weekend thing
KilrenKrae: is there another show on tonight, ids this one over?
Juliamon: This one is on break and will be back in a moment
ContingentCat: I think there's a Let
Juliamon: There is also a Let's Nope afterward.
KilrenKrae: oh ok lol
kat2kool: Do these channel points expire?
Juliamon: I don't think so?
Rhynerd: I don’t think they do
SirTrae is continuing the Gift Sub they got from TheMerricat!
SirTrae: But I think the emotes you get with them do.
Juliamon: Though they're so easy to earn I suspect they may implement an expiration eventually.
kat2kool: lrrFINE_HF
Juliamon: Yeah, emotes purchased with points are 24h
DiscordianTokkan: Just got in from Terminator and food, how's The Outer Worlds so far?
BasilHunter: my poinys thing has a notice: Points may be reset on Dec 16, 2019
ravenlord_xix: @DiscordianTokkan How was terminator? Planning on seeing it this weekend
DiscordianTokkan: @ravenlord_xix Best Terminator I've seen in years.
ravenlord_xix: good news!
InquisitorGaia: dope
DiscordianTokkan: I hadn't even been spoiled on how the Terminator's quirk (Since they ALL have to have a quirk these days), so if you haven't heard yet, it's worth being surprised
Pazzix: kinda wish my only evening class wasnt tuesday
Invitare: Do you want to see Cystypigs? There's one on Phineas' lab
DiscordianTokkan: sergeOffByOne
RvLeshrac: OH YEAH there's totally a live Cystypig.
Duven60: ah the old index at 0 or 1
Applesauz: Monarch's pretty good for nasty-ness
Rhynerd: Isn’t there a cystypig plant somewhere?
RvLeshrac: Delicious, delicious cystypigs.
taeasakura: Go to Cascadia
Invitare: the dangerous place was Monarch > Cascadia
Gekyouryuu: chat, I am SUPER stoked! Japanese Live Action Spider-Man has been confirmed for Spider-verse 2!
RvLeshrac: I mean, cystypigs are really the humane meat.
ravenlord_xix: going in kinda blind. Read a few quick articles on Behind the scenes stuff
EvilBadman: I haven't been to Scylla. You can go to a couple different places after Edgewater
Invitare: I haven't been here
RvLeshrac: You can just harvest the "fruit" that falls from your meat, instead of the actual meat.
ravenlord_xix: you know, theres an elevator there
plummeting_sloth: I will always be with you Holmes... ALWAYS
ravenlord_xix: avoid the big evil apes though
Flailsquared: my cat is the best at the creepy watson thing
Pazzix: i like space
RvLeshrac: They're called cysts, but they're really just meat apples.
InquisitorGaia: ^
ravenlord_xix: blue barrels are shock bombs if you shoot them
RobotInProgress: meat apples, or crimes against nature
DreadfulDrifter: @ravenlord_xix elevators and doors are for people with poor imagination
RvLeshrac: I see you like to live dangerously.
ArkhamArchivist: I saw a tweet where a child called Brussels Sprouts "Salad Meatballs"
KV1NN4: (I know I'm the foolish one here)
RvLeshrac: ArkhamArchivist: that implies a level of flavour which is not present.
ravenlord_xix: out of the fire...
BlightningHelix: Do not exist the dome
BlightningHelix: exit*
plummeting_sloth: the blue keeps the bad out
ravenlord_xix: yes, a big dome on an airless asteroid- terrforming issue
ArkhamArchivist: Amonkhet is unsafe outside the Hekma
Angnor33: PUBG mod?
Duven60: kinda cold outside ...no mind of atmosphere
MAPBoardgames: This is a weird PUBG mod
RobotInProgress: death is optional... until its not
BloodnBullets: i wonder if you can shut down the field?
InquisitorGaia: @Angnor33 the outer worlds
RvLeshrac: You're not wrong.
ArkhamArchivist: we're all alone, more or less
TheWooglie: Duven60 all alone, more or less?
CapnRobert: quests take you here
plummeting_sloth: just outside that bubble surely is the subocean
Mr_sandmens: I just assumed that was a wall
RvLeshrac: Most of hte interesting story is in logs.
ravenlord_xix: I didn't meet col. butterscotch when I went to scylla
ravenlord_xix: you should go meet junlei and start the parvatti quest for some good, wholesome feels
plummeting_sloth: he's known as the information broker for good reason... he breaks information. Mainly by tearing up newspapers
BloodnBullets: im getting an idea of what we are going to find there...
EvilBadman: Nyoka is rad
RvLeshrac: I just think Cam should get a trip to Phineas's, purely so he can meet that gentle giant, that king of corporate meatgineering, the Cystypig.

SirTrae: Stheno? Is there also a Eyurale and Medusa?
Duven60: cute little thing, bit bitty tho
RvLeshrac: I had to return here with a cannon.
plummeting_sloth: ah, gravity
Juliamon: Welp.
DiscordianTokkan: *crunch*
ravenlord_xix: the most dangerous enemy
ulexarX: "So long suckers!" I jump off the building in a trail of smoke
Juliamon: Horizon: Second Dawn
DiscordianTokkan: The most deadly enemy in any TTRPG also: Fall damage
Ukon_vasara: ground is fine, gravity the true villain
Mysticman89: gamer sense is a tingling
BlightningHelix: Gamer senses?
EvilBadman: Those big animals were level 19, if you missed that, and needed perspective
plummeting_sloth: for all we know, those giant animals are in fact teh welcoming committee. They are of course by the landing pad
BloodnBullets: well that was a slick move
RvLeshrac: Did you just juke a Mantiqueen?
plummeting_sloth: you handle that Parvati
DiscordianTokkan: Can't stop, nay, won't stop
iamahmed2: What are the odds
RvLeshrac: A Mantiqueen is like a 6' tall, 4' long praying mantis which shoots wasps.
iamahmed2: I was literally just doing the same thing
ArkhamArchivist: ugh, this place is the pits
ravenlord_xix: take advantage of the unlimited stamina
accountmadeforants: Twitch compression does not appreciate the Q
plummeting_sloth: twitch compression generally doesn't like time compression
BlightningHelix: I think twitch just doesn't like this planet in general
plummeting_sloth: dang but this is pretty though
JellyAndKake: okay so it's not JUST my shitty hotel internet
ravenlord_xix: i'll laugh so hard if you just speed run it to nyoka
EvilBadman: you didn't have the nav clearance to
Invitare: you need a nav key to get past the blockade
CapnRobert: yeah they explain
plummeting_sloth: good hustle
Mr_sandmens: you didn't have a access code to land here
ravenlord_xix: god, it took me so long trying to sneak through
DiscordianTokkan: benginTry
RvLeshrac: That was actually an impressive run.
ravenlord_xix: you can also bring your ship here by going to the dock and having ADA fly the ship over
iamahmed2: @ravenlord_xix Same I was literally doing the same till I realized I could just land on stellar bay
iamahmed2: 😂😂
NightValien28: hair thief
SirTrae: Is that an ascot?
plummeting_sloth: ah, a potato chamer
NightValien28: I am potato
plummeting_sloth: who doesnt love fish!
DiscordianTokkan: OK, this game is awesome
plummeting_sloth: deez brass nuts
T1pster: lrrAWW_SG I accidentally an emote
RvLeshrac: SO FUNNY STORY, there's a bug in the game where if you do a certain combination of quests, you board your ship and just get a message "Parvati has died"
thefoxwarriors: It's not the best choice. It's Spacer's Choice
RvLeshrac: And I was like "Fuck this" as soon as it happened and reloaded.
Kramburger: How mush time do you need, in terms of side quests completed?
ravenlord_xix: @RvLeshrac Tell me how this happened so I can make sure to never do it, must protect pavartti
RvLeshrac: I'm not sure, somehow you can get cattle on your ship, and apparently she may randomly die. Reloaded, and it never happened again.
plummeting_sloth: ah, so not sober, just drunk and also awake
ravenlord_xix: pavartti scared of cows, confirmed.
Rockario: Would potato's nickname be "Po", "Tay", or something else?
ravenlord_xix: also, is the cattle part a reference to that one firefly episode?
ArkhamArchivist: @Rockario Spud
RvLeshrac: I have no idea, because I've never seen Firefly, but the answer is almost certainly "Yes"
plummeting_sloth: well, technically the second drink was on you, Mr Mustache

Gekyouryuu: "I came because I was told this was a bar. I was expecting a BAR machine gun. I am disappointed, but at least I'm also drunk."
NathanJay_GA: @syrusrayne they found a shortcut
plummeting_sloth: I wish my bar had a barter system for the random crap I've collected
plummeting_sloth: surely this jar of old nails is worth a shot of Old Crow
SyrusRayne: @NathanJay_GA ._.
RvLeshrac: Abigail is *incredibly* thirsty.
plummeting_sloth: locking you say...
NightValien28: upstairs you say
plummeting_sloth: upstairs you say
Kramburger: The woman looks like 3 of my design lecturers from Uni
plummeting_sloth: hehe
SirTrae: She sounds familar
DepressedMoonman: Get this women some pure and plain water cause she thirsty
RainbowPhoenix06: she talks to much...convenient
BloodnBullets: so this frail old woman has a key to the thing we need? interesting...
plummeting_sloth: you're certainly welcome to pay your respects and also graverob
I_Am_Clockwork: "Hey Kids, wanna see a dead body?"
ArkhamArchivist: Shame we sold that shovel
accountmadeforants: Ah, so that's what that grave was for.
Ukon_vasara: ++++++++++++++
plummeting_sloth: can't help, too busy exhumin'
Ukon_vasara: oh, sorry
RvLeshrac: Sometimes the sulfur smell covers up the fishy smell.
plummeting_sloth: oh no, they've evolved pathing!
RvLeshrac: What level are you?
EvilBadman: they're about 6 levels higher than you
RvLeshrac: That'll do it.
RvLeshrac: When you're on level, they're incredibly easy. When they're higher level, they're incredibly difficult.
EvilBadman: Maybe give Parvati a better gun and armor
accountmadeforants: You're here when you were specifically told not to, you two.
accountmadeforants: I appreciate that, though.
EvilBadman: Z to sell your junk

BloodnBullets: those jedi were on to something
RvLeshrac: She didn't say he was buried.
plummeting_sloth: why bury the man when you can get them reasonably close
RvLeshrac: You were reading too much into it.
Lucien0451: Bug that happenede to me a few times. Go to the map screen (or any similar), and then to the character screen to level up
BlightningHelix: I mean, when your graveyard is full of monsters, you don't spend too long with the shovels
BlightningHelix: You just kinda dump it and hope for the best.
accountmadeforants: Oh, so now I don't know what that interactable grave in the middle of nowhere is for, I guess.
sithenin: I had 6 companions by this planet
Sogheim: howdy howdy
plummeting_sloth: gotta love the level-up immediately after theft
Ukon_vasara: yay stealing VoHiYo
TemporallyAwry: Cause it's a grand 'ol time :D
InquisitorGaia: depends on how much you steal and how you do it, it might be legal if you lawyer hard enough
Ukon_vasara: i do like how triumphantly our crime was rewarded bloobyThief
BlightningHelix: Okay Parvati, you're going to take the fall for this.
DiscordianTokkan: Smash the state! Or at least snatch it!
jpss92400: are you guys going to play through the entire game?
NightValien28: she ready
Ukon_vasara: 20,000xp seems like a lot of xp
RvLeshrac: It is... not a lot of XP.
erloas: they look directly as you as they talk to eachother, kind of creepy
plummeting_sloth: BLADELORD
sithenin: Did you find the science hammer?
RvLeshrac: "Accept" is accepting that they won't be applied when you leave.
EvilBadman: Your companions have perks too
Meltalar: so, honest question. how do you like the game?
Hygrom: Your companions also can be given armor and guns
BloodnBullets: shoot everythign
wightfyre: Dang, I think I mess around too much in The Outer Worlds, 'cause I was over level 20 by the time I even met Nyoka NotLikeThis (I may have a problem that involves clearing everything to completion before moving on)
NathanJay_GA: oh, can we talk to Grimm? he's got some good lines
snowshoveler23: I tried to like this game. Great dialogue, but the world wasn’t fun IMO
CulturalGeekGirl: Firefly + Futurama
NathanJay_GA: You can tell that there's a lot of effort and sincerity that went into every little detail
Meltalar: okay, thank you cameron. I feel the same, I was thinking of getting it, but I just can't feel it
I_Am_Clockwork: it suffers the problem of most rpgs of its type where the combat is too bland to stay the amount of it has, imo
adamjford: If you like the genre of "Picking Up Random Junk Kinda Janky Shooters", this is probably a good one of those
accountmadeforants: This game is very good at throwing fun dialogue at you.
ponbern: PLAY SOME DURING YOUR DESERT BUS DOWNTIME!!!

ArgentumFlare: This is a game that I am very excited for the sequel to.
I_Am_Clockwork: there's some unwrittn rule that RPG's have to have subpar fighting mechanics
sithenin: I think weak points are only active in slow time
kat2kool: @ponbern I'm pretty sure that 'desert bus downtime' is a contradiction in terms
I_Am_Clockwork: *plotbased rpgs
accountmadeforants: You also played at Hard, Cameron. And you really shouldn't, this game's strong point isn't combat, it just about made its combat good over the previous Fallouts.
TemporallyAwry: "The gameplay gets in the way of the game" situation.
RvLeshrac: There's a "Nyoka Bar Talk Bingo Sheet" in the bar.
ponbern: @kat2kool I guess I dropped the /S
ArgentumFlare: Now that they've been acquired by microsoft they'll likely have the budget to make Outer Worlds 2 a legitimately AAA game.
kat2kool: @ponbern ah, fair enough
NathanJay_GA: Yeah, honestly I liked all the talk about tossball. Helps flesh out that this could be a real place
Crokoking: the dragon age games might be a good comparison
Invitare: Monarch is the largest I've seen so far
CountZakula: This place is the largest map if I'm not mistaken
InquisitorGaia: monarch is quite large compared to the rest of the worlds
Meltalar: but isn't just a jrpg with party interaction, like fire emblem, just a better way, tactics over blazing through combat?

I_Am_Clockwork: I get the feeling the game is telling us "Capitalism would be fiiiiine, if it weren't for all these bad Corporations using thier powers to be bad actors"
RvLeshrac: It chiefly says "Corporations are awful, but the people who make up the corporation are also mostly awful, but some of them are good, so the solution is probably to eliminate the ones that are awful."
I_Am_Clockwork: which... you know
Anubis169: meow... manMARTIN
Mysticman89: Is the characters aesthetic intentionally C3P0 ish?
