korvys: Here comes 2
SnivianMoon: Salutations, Ian!
Suhono: Oh hi
GrunkusDunkus: OH
Suhono: I am ready!
ElementalAlchemist: Good evening friends!
GrunkusDunkus: I left twitch open and suddenly Ian
Drakas: dose the web cam lok a bit dark to any one else
Simonark: Shenmue games are famously short, right?
korvys: Yes, and completely absent of waiting for things...
korvys: Iamsmr
ElementalAlchemist: Do you know where I can find Mr. Sun?
korvys: Maybe look up in Mr. Sky?
Alephred: Are the pandas the vendors, or the customers?
Alephred: Or the goods?
ElementalAlchemist: the rentals are WHAT
Simonark: That old man has a 25-year old voice.
plummeting_sloth: no, you'll need to use the special booze gatchapon to get the specific alcohol Sun wants
Juliamon: The fish all went to bed already
Simonark: The early evening is a notoriously poor time for lake fishing
SnivianMoon: Oooh, those are some nice herb sets.
Electrodyne: Mods plz rename the stream Ian's Run
SnivianMoon: First, find some crows....
Juliamon: If we had the power to rename streams we wouldn't have to yell frequently when the title fails to update.
Drakas: is it just me or is the web cam a bit dark
SnivianMoon: So much better than bifoliate orange.
kakmize: ground citrus is best citrus,
Juliamon: No no it's fine tonight
Simonark: "Ground citrus"? As in.. on the ground? Or like... sausage ugli?
I_Am_Clockwork: when in doubt automate
I_Am_Clockwork: also, heyho friends
orbitaltuna: ooh it's shen mooey time
SnackPak_: slytqHi
korvys: "Looking to broaden my privacy breach surface area"
Juliamon: "Fuckin' deal with it"
ElementalAlchemist: We're going to keep hanging around her for as long as it annoys you
plummeting_sloth: "I honestly don't know... whenever she puts out I guess"
orbitaltuna: ha
RatherWT: Did they add ANY polygons to Ryo?
Drakas: how is everyones day going
Juliamon: Competitive horse stance!
korvys: "I am a human and speak like a human. Nothing I am saying should make you think otherwise"
plummeting_sloth: lets beat the annoyance out of this dude
Tidomonkey: Kick his ass Seabass.
ElementalAlchemist: RatherWT: no
myrddinthewizard: Good Evening Everyone!
Electrodyne: Put on your red shoes and stance the blues 🎵🎵
dangerous_safety: remember, always punch with your feet Kappa
Electrodyne: Let's stance
plummeting_sloth: did we ever beat teh top monk at that last temple?
ElementalAlchemist: Does our opponent have health, or are we just supposed to survive through the time limit?
ReverseCreations: Oh have we found another rhythm section of Shenmue III?
ElementalAlchemist: Guess it's the time limit
plummeting_sloth: just need to horse stance ourselves into some better kung fu?
ANeMzero: goodbye forever
SnivianMoon: Sparring isn't actual combat - It's basically a time-limited excercize to grind up your moves.
RatherWT: Ugh, Ryo, write on the lines
Simonark: WKRP?
ElementalAlchemist: ah
plummeting_sloth: herbs hang out in bars. Well.... Herberts hang out in bars
ElementalAlchemist: so sparring is supposed to be different from combat
TheMerricat: deep cut @Simonark
SnivianMoon: Yeah, it's a bit confusing at first, but they're separate options that have separate purposes.
j0xer: that voice is a young person trying to a be an old person....poorly
korvys: Are you buying or selling at the panda market?
plummeting_sloth: yeah, religion is cool I guess, but I'm gonna go play video games
Juliamon: By pandas, for pandas, of pandas
Simonark: Is there a franchise where all the children's voices are over 70? For balance?
SnivianMoon: Invest in Panda futures!
Arcticblast324: booooo
TheMerricat: ysbrydPunjail ysbrydPunjail ysbrydPunjail
korvys: Is it a panda bear marke- DAMMIT
dumbo3k: disbear?
Juliamon: !tiltyquote
LRRbot: "You're gonna be subjected to some goddamn puns." — Jacob (via tiltyhouse)
Tidomonkey: Anybody want to buy some panda meat?
kinetikparametr: Its Panda Market, not Punda Market
Simonark: Panda puns? You've gone and bamboozled us.
TheNerdWonder: Ian, that pun was a lot of bull
korvys: meander?
ogundiety: BUt it is very serious plodding.
TheMerricat: I appreciate that Ian isn't black and white about puns.
Simonark: I like the apt word "Obambulate".
dumbo3k: The same price is the best price!
samwonk: They are tied for the best prices.
ElementalAlchemist: yup
GDwarf: Village-wide, instantaneous price-matching
ElementalAlchemist: The prices are as best as the other prices
ANeMzero: this economy is rigged
Fruan: Tied for first is still first!
Arcticblast324: I mean, if everyone has the same prices, then she *does* have the best prices
SnivianMoon: Has the cauliflower meta been replaced?
Simonark: They are the best prices in that they were set for her by Pete Best.
GrunkusDunkus: if everyone has the same price, hers are technically the best
RatherWT: "That seems pointless" is the driving philosophy of Shenmue, I thought.
JohnPraw: I worked at a gas station in high school - a guy eating all the lemons would not surprise me.
johnhelix: I just got here, are we harassing children again?
tehlordofelves: I was going to ask if they gave the main character facial animations this time around, but, apparently not
ANeMzero: lights come on and werewolves come out
korvys: What year is this set in?
myrddinthewizard: What a terrible night for a curse...
Simonark: Wait, The child's answer was yes and he had NO follow-up questions?
ElementalAlchemist: yes
GrunkusDunkus: he's horrifying
j0xer: 0_0
dangerous_safety: No No No NO
ElementalAlchemist: Right, that kid's mouth
Simonark: Also he looks like he's a victim of the Joker?
ElementalAlchemist: is a terror and a menace
tehlordofelves: OH GOD! Those animations!
korvys: Imprisoned for face crimes
dangerous_safety: lrrCREEPL_SQ lrrCREEPR_SQ
Electrodyne: Did that kid unhinge his jaw
kinetikparametr: Norman Reedus?!
ANeMzero: that kids smile reminded me of the wkuk director sketch.. "Nice take, but try it Happier and with your mouths open"
SnivianMoon: That kid is like a toothpaste commercial was brought to life by a Monkey's Paw.

Walkingharder: That is not a response to that statement
GrunkusDunkus: the least helpful answer
korvys: How very helpful...
SnivianMoon: Check with the market shopkeep, maybe?
ElementalAlchemist: There are several around here, unless there aren't
ElementalAlchemist: So we need sweet alcohol
A_Dub888: Isn't that one of Darksied's generals?
Electrodyne: Search on the ground. After 7 pm it's Sun-down.
SnivianMoon: Oh my god. Hearing that come out of Ryo was weird.
Alephred: You're thinking of Granny Goodness.
SnivianMoon: Huzzah!
ElementalAlchemist: holy crap
Simonark: Grandmaster Funk?
ElementalAlchemist: we've asked like 25 people and we finally have someone to ask
korvys: Grandmaster Funk?
ElementalAlchemist: Now we just have to find Feng
TheExactSame: that was intentional
Walkingharder: Doesn't matter. Just start asking about Fung
TheNerdWonder: since when does E sound like U?
GrunkusDunkus: who is he? the grandmaster
ElementalAlchemist: STOP HITTING ON US
Walkingharder: WHAT!?
SnivianMoon: Okay, this is a part that drove me crazy. The game does an AWFUL job of telling you who Fung is. I can clue you in if you want, Ian.
A_Dub888: !adult
LRRbot: I need a different adult!
SnackPak_: She heard us flirting wiht granny
Juliamon: Everyone in this village is SO thirsty
GrunkusDunkus: HMMMMMMM
quietcat: the old lady's voice reminds me strongly of the old medicine woman on the mountaintop in Last Airbender
Iceberg_Man: she shot her shot
BusTed: slytqThirst
Walkingharder: Okay these answers are pointless
ElementalAlchemist: I will not tell him that because I will never see him because you didn't tell me how to get to his house
plummeting_sloth: tell hiim to show his face once in a while... tell him to take off that stupid mask
Walkingharder: FINALLY
ElementalAlchemist: wow
SnivianMoon: Oh snap, she actually was useful! I wish I had talked to her on my playthrough.
ElementalAlchemist: Did we find two useful answers in oe stream?
ElementalAlchemist: That's a new record
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun a fire fily
GrunkusDunkus: looks like
SnivianMoon: Neat!
Electrodyne: You can't take the sky from me
Juliamon: Fireflies DO kinda look like LEDs
ElementalAlchemist: I assume by the time we get to Ternary Spring which is past Sunflower Grove we'll be summoned to Shenhua's house
embyrr922: Fireflies are nature's bioluminescent LEDs
odocoelus: Is Twitch constantly pausing/buffering for anyone else? or is it just on my end?
SnivianMoon: On the edge of my seat here.
ElementalAlchemist: It's just you
TheMerricat: @odocoelus it's ok on my end.
ElementalAlchemist: Ian pls
GDwarf: 18 cabbages in 15 minutes?
SnivianMoon: Boooooooo (okay, that was good)
dangerous_safety: more like BLEDs
ElementalAlchemist: Two minutes now
TheNerdWonder: @odocoelus it was doing that to me earlier. ended up having to reboot some equipment
Juliamon: Will that be the herb of hubris?
ElementalAlchemist: oh, wow, last second
GDwarf: *Seconds* to spare
ElementalAlchemist: Good job
Electrodyne: If you run there reeeeeally fast are you in bachmann ternary overdrive
SnivianMoon: Nice!
korvys: Grand Feng Railroad
v_squid: ternary spring ? master_feng : !master_feng
Walkingharder: Okay I have questions about this guy
TheExactSame: this man is made of wood
kinetikparametr: PRAISE THE SUN
Walkingharder: This guy is me and I am not happy about it
ElementalAlchemist: Alright, so we just need wine and steamed buns
oyleslyck: "Don't forget the wine and buns" - no context
A_Dub888: Sorry, are we looking for a man or a rabbit?
ElementalAlchemist: to attract this guy
SnivianMoon: Oh no.
ElementalAlchemist: Let's play Face Off, the game where you rip your face off!
GrunkusDunkus: like in Faceoff?
korvys: starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage
TheMerricat: Nicolas Cage vs John Travolta! :-)
BusTed: Good ol' reliable rock.
Walkingharder: That face.....
TheNerdWonder: good old rock. nothing beats rock
ElementalAlchemist: yeah
plummeting_sloth: you won her face?
ElementalAlchemist: We got to make fun of Shenhua's face
ElementalAlchemist: instead of her making fun of our face
Shadwhawk: Wow, they really couldn't even bother animating this?
Electrodyne: Scissors to take her
dumbo3k: she has only chosen scissors
TheExactSame: So face off is rock paper scissors on the honor system
oyleslyck: Baiting you with scissors
embyrr922: Wow their faces
Arcticblast324: she's a big fan of scissors huh
embyrr922: Halp
Juliamon: I think Shenhua is trying to tell you something
SnackPak_: This is Hell, right?
ElementalAlchemist: Scissors
JohnPraw: She'd be a lot better if she just picked correctly, seeing as you always say first.
I_Am_Clockwork: does... she always pick... the same thing?
MCJiopur: Is this rock paper scissors entirely vocally?
SniperPumpkin: this is a loosing strategy ian
BusTed: Hahaha.
GrunkusDunkus: oh wow
hamdotexe: rock pls
oyleslyck: Clip this
SnivianMoon: Cut it out you two.
v_squid: did they only record one line?
ElementalAlchemist: She didn't before, but she clearly does now
plummeting_sloth: and so they scissored on into the night
dangerous_safety: the game has demonstrated a loop, you must concede
GrunkusDunkus: oh holy shit
BusTed: The long game.
Despoiler98: WHat is with their mouths
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
TheNerdWonder: she's stuck in a loop and he's an idiot
oyleslyck: NO
ElementalAlchemist: No
SnivianMoon: That was some premium face off.
hamdotexe: well played
ElementalAlchemist: We are fun, and that's why we're not doing it
dangerous_safety: clean up after all that scissoring
Walkingharder: That bed banana
Despoiler98: just taking your shit
ElementalAlchemist: dangerous_safety: pls
MCJiopur: He always announced first, why didn't she just say rock
Electrodyne: I dig her spunky 80s beret
Electrodyne: The kind you find in a panda market
ElementalAlchemist: Ryo
ElementalAlchemist: Ryo pls
embyrr922: Why do we not get under the covers?
ElementalAlchemist: embyrr922: covers are for chumps
embyrr922: Why do we sleep in our JEANS??
SnivianMoon: Don't forget the wine and buns!
TheMerricat: @embyrr922 because that would require more animation budget. :-P
ElementalAlchemist: Non-denim pajamas are for chumps
Despoiler98: Wine and buns for breakfast?
Electrodyne: Scissors
Zalthia: Why isn’t he writing on the lines :(
ElementalAlchemist: Hey Shenhua. Do you have wine and buns?
Drakas: she has nice shoes
Despoiler98: They are expression humans do.... *faces dont change*
SydPreviouslyHeadache: this game is so weird.
SnivianMoon: There are a lot of herbs around the house, I believe.
DarkMorford: Shenhua's plenty cute, but she has all the personality of a board.
Juliamon: Herbal exploration time
ElementalAlchemist: #sponsored
BusTed: An herbal excursion.
embyrr922: We found the bounding box on the music
nemryn: This is a really pretty game
TheMerricat: You just missed a herb back there.
SnivianMoon: I think there was another ground citrus back there.
Bakufreak: Missed another thing on your left
Electrodyne: delicious rock oranges
SniperPumpkin: ah, it's always nice to take the morning to explore the great digital outdoors
SydPreviouslyHeadache: i go with I Don't Know. they're my third baseman
Walkingharder: It's not like they are using them
SniperPumpkin: get all the ground citrus
Alephred: Now for the ground beef.
dangerous_safety: joo-yuh-bae Kappa
TheMerricat: So what do we do with all these herbs we pick? do we eat them or sell them?

plummeting_sloth: it's a good day to hand a monk his own ass
SnivianMoon: Monk fight sounds like a good idea. Maybe some one inch punches to get our endurance up?
Electrodyne: Are those cows?
dumbo3k: that dank herb\
Alephred: 11 herbs and stances.
SniperPumpkin: cows and cow like objects
Electrodyne: Shenmoos
korvys: lrrGOAT
Walkingharder: Herbs, goats, and apparently chickens....
Walkingharder: This game confuses me
Juliamon: That doesn't seem particularly confusing.
SnivianMoon: Consecutive Normal Punches!
dangerous_safety: the one-inch "two-foot" technique
ElementalAlchemist: It's only one inch!™
Despoiler98: Saw a guy do this to Conan on his show looked like it hurt
nemryn: Oh, we haven't even gotten to the part with the chickens yet
Walkingharder: sure, one inch
Despoiler98: That is not even close to a 1 inch punch
SydPreviouslyHeadache: eah i thought the deal behind a 1 inch punch was, 1 in away, and just shoving your body weight into it
ogundiety: Maybe his back foot only moves bout an inch? That's as close as I can come up with for their definition
ElementalAlchemist: Ryo status: still not one-punch man
ElementalAlchemist: yeah, just made it
SnivianMoon: Now that we're Stage 3 One Inch Punch, Ryo's punching a shorter distance. I think he's working his way up to an /actual/ One Inch Punch slowly.
dangerous_safety: oh that makes sense then i guess
Walkingharder: Garlic breaks are important
dangerous_safety: one-more-punch man
SydPreviouslyHeadache: garlic: Good for your heart
SnivianMoon: Bunches of punches and garlic filled lunches
SydPreviouslyHeadache: unless you're allergic to garlic
CaptainSpam: Dang it, Ryo, take off the dang bandage!
Despoiler98: fight time is NOW
korvys: People who take things literally should give them back.
SnivianMoon: Atmospheric and dramatic. Go Ian!
Despoiler98: oh he's gonna fuck you up
Walkingharder: gut says second
SnivianMoon: Holy heck, he hits like a truck.
Despoiler98: wham!
SnackPak_: Back to the dummy
SnivianMoon: It's pretty clunk
embyrr922: Just slam an entire bulb of garlic
SnivianMoon: Unfortunately Snake Power can't be used in Dojo fights
Despoiler98: Are you just eating garlic cloves WHOLE? He must have the WORST breath
CaptainSpam: Come with me... and you'll be... in a world DANGIT
SydPreviouslyHeadache: snakes. some might think they're a fruit or vegetable. however, they are actually fungi, as determined by badgers
SydPreviouslyHeadache: well shit, now i hear it too
ElementalAlchemist: Yeah, I've been getting that too
Electrodyne: Lots of valuable plants out here in the subherbs.
SnivianMoon: Chop chop
ElementalAlchemist: Well, we'll get money at least
ElementalAlchemist: SUPER. CHOP. SUPER. CHOP. SUPER. CHOP.
ElementalAlchemist: (no, that would be a good game)
Despoiler98: THats some high tempo music for chopping wood
korvys: Glad your here to comment on our word, my dude.
Despoiler98: whiff!
korvys: *you're, work
AziraphalesShop: thanks Ian, I'm now picturing a Skeletor/ Willy Wonka mashup.
plummeting_sloth: Just like, once out of every 200 times or something, I'd just like him to shriek NOOOOOO when you mess up
daDilph: Watching this stream has confirmed that I have zero desire to play Shenmue myself. But the stream itself is awesome.
SniperPumpkin: this guy does have the best reaction when you miss though
dangerous_safety: is it just me, ir does the woodcut music sound like an oriental remix of oldschool doom?
ElementalAlchemist: Well, it's on Play It Forward now, so
Pharmacistjudge: will you be here longer than Adam on Persona 5?
Despoiler98: we got Herbs for DAAAAYS
Despoiler98: By herbs does he mean hardcore drugs? Are we heroin smugglers?
SnivianMoon: Don't forget the wine and buns!
SniperPumpkin: where does the time go
guifero: @LoadingReadyRun u can see the herbs u need in your inventory... theres no need to go the store!
paulienohands: the music is from afterburner
plummeting_sloth: the days are just packed... with pointless faffying about
Trakshvar: What year is this supposed to be actually?
guifero: @LoadingReadyRun therers also a map for herbs
plummeting_sloth: 1987
SketchyDetails: Rename the stream to Infinite Shenmue
daDilph: So much pointless faff! But pointless faff is fun with friends. Not so much solo.
SniperPumpkin: I will say that on stream is the only possible way I could experience this game, it would be unbearably slow without playing off of chat
Trakshvar: And they still have guards with polearms at the gates?
SnivianMoon: Would it be safer to buy more than one?
Despoiler98: steamed hams
SnivianMoon: Oh wow. I didn't notice that last time.
SnivianMoon: That's a good return.
embyrr922: Ooh Shaomai so good
hamdotexe: them pork buns are so good
SnivianMoon: Oh, I guess it's the same.
plummeting_sloth: man, I know it's not actually the case, but considering all the imperial iconography that was talked about last stream, i would love for the baddies in this to actually just be Cultural Revolution holdovers stamping out any reference to the Imperial Family
Electrodyne: Do we need more than one, since it said "buns"?
Alephred: I would much prefer to eat buns that garlic.
Alephred: *than
ElementalAlchemist: Yup, that's a camera angle
Despoiler98: that kids like 2 how does he know this?
Inkymouse: Was it the voice of one of the twins from Rugrats?
plummeting_sloth: "But, you managed to find your way home huh?"
Trakshvar: What part of china are we in anyway?
plummeting_sloth: "shame"
SniperPumpkin: the rural part :P
Jorge4hg: shenmue china
Electrodyne: The rocky party
guifero: @LoadingReadyRun it is in park u have to enter it
Electrodyne: part
Trakshvar: Also impressed we havent seen any Mao hats. Isnt this in the middle of mao?
dangerous_safety: not beijing
Despoiler98: *facepalm*
Alephred: It's the 80's, not really the middle of Mao.
Pharmacistjudge: Ah..."work" for you
plummeting_sloth: okay, apparently it's in Guangxi province
Electrodyne: I know what part of China this is: Thirsty Mom Village
Despoiler98: Does anyone else do any work in this town?
plummeting_sloth: it's basically the most south you can go on China's coast
plummeting_sloth: where it hits Vietnam
Trakshvar: All i know is 1987 was the year of the black dragon fires
SniperPumpkin: is this a maze, this feels like a mase
Pharmacistjudge: hmm...does jujube candyh have jujube in it?
dangerous_safety: desperate housewives, rural china edition
plummeting_sloth: and like, ya know in it's interior as you said
Despoiler98: This chicken means something >.>
Jorge4hg: that chicken is the answer
plummeting_sloth: those sunflowers? herbally useless
Despoiler98: And also not moving
Despoiler98: Suspicious chicken INTERROGATE HIM
SniperPumpkin: the way through has been found
plummeting_sloth: a temple hidden betwixt sunflowers
Trakshvar: I love crows
embyrr922: It's Russel!
SnivianMoon: Maybe there's some Crow Dipper nearby?
SniperPumpkin: follow the animals ian, they're speaking to you
plummeting_sloth: maybe this is why the temple got abandoned. No one wanted to trample the sunflowers
Trakshvar: Crows are such lovely birds
Despoiler98: No they'd be your Murder Ian, crow flocks are Murders
dangerous_safety: ryo's murder posse
Pharmacistjudge: a bunch of chickens...
hamdotexe: I tried to fed crows peanuts for that same reason
Pharmacistjudge: maybe the chicken in the maze was just foreshadowing
plummeting_sloth: the bird man of victoria
Despoiler98: thats kind of terrifying
SniperPumpkin: aha, some plot
korvys: Sure thing, Grand Feng Railroad
plummeting_sloth: he's very wary... and also very drunk
Jorge4hg: disguise as a chicken
Trakshvar: A man in my country has had the same crow coming to his appartment and peking on the door at the same time of day for years
Electrodyne: Parliament Fengadelic
SnivianMoon: Time to use the wine and buns!
plummeting_sloth: suns out bums out
SydPreviouslyHeadache: here comes the sun, do do do do
nemryn: Ryo: master of stealth
embyrr922: Good job, Ryo
korvys: Grand Feng Railroad said you were here
plummeting_sloth: so, he super sneaky... occupying the literal only building here
plummeting_sloth: "You get one question, one, got it?" "What are crows?"
embyrr922: One question! "Where do sailors hang out?"
SniperPumpkin: what is your accent supposed to be?
plummeting_sloth: like, I know they won't touch it, but it's interesting they picked the year right before the Nationalist Revolution
dangerous_safety: thats 4 questions now...
SniperPumpkin: so wine and buns per question
SniperPumpkin: huh
Astramentha: 5 questions.
plummeting_sloth: he has a sign that says "Will teach kung fu for booze and snacks"
SniperPumpkin: saw an herb on the left side as well
SnivianMoon: Secret Licorice!
SnivianMoon: Crow Dipper?
plummeting_sloth: nah, crow dip is poor mans chewing tobacco
SnackPak_: lrrGOAT
Trakshvar: i hope Riyu loves licorice as much as ian. Cause he sure is getting a lot
SnivianMoon: I just figured Crow Dipper was really, really bad fondue.
plummeting_sloth: you ever need a nicotine fix so bad you just rubbed a crow across your gums?
A_Dub888: benginButt benginButt benginButt

Karfsma778: Oh god, we're fighting a little old drunk man, we're gonna DIE
justwhatever_idk: gotta love the druken master
SnivianMoon: Wouldn't be a Shenmue game if you didn't get your ass handed to you by an unsuspecting old man.
plummeting_sloth: you better body check yourself before you body wreck yourself
PMAvers: "Your father... left his manga collection in the attic."
plummeting_sloth: when I'm good and full and drunk
Electrodyne: Killed by Vader, he was
Karfsma778: "Well, for one, he's dead, so"
SniperPumpkin: at least he's being upfront about stonewalling us, as opposed to every other person in this game who just does it by accident
justwhatever_idk: he feels bad about getting beaten up by the old man and needs comforting
ElementalAlchemist: We should tell Shenhua how we got utterly totaled by a 75-year-old man
Karfsma778: a *drunk* 75-year old
Pharmacistjudge: ok quick this game still about trying to not let two mirrors touch each other because if they do, it will destroy the world...somehow?
plummeting_sloth: lets take our frustration on being beaten by one old man by beating up another old man
Trakshvar: Can you use that other dummy?
Shadwhawk: One of the sounds in this music sounds exactly like my cat scratching at my door, and it raises my blood pressure whenever I hear it
plummeting_sloth: and horse stance is useful when combatting horses with kung fu
Electrodyne: Let's Stance! Put on your red shoes and stance the blues
SnivianMoon: Practice your horse stance, to make sure you can stay stable.
SniperPumpkin: Dear Dr. Ian, I've done a google and can tell you where the Crow Dipper is if you like.
Despoiler98: That music is....far too intense
justwhatever_idk: Loading Ready Live segment: Horse Stance
plummeting_sloth: well, there's not tapping A to not squat
SniperPumpkin: there's only one that I can find, Langhuishan, right past the cow pasture
TheAsterite: if i've never played shenmue or yakuza, which should i play first?
SketchyDetails: Is this the kung fu equivalent of doing curls in the squat rack?
SnivianMoon: It's between the Kung Fu temple and Shenhua's house.
Daggothur: oh wow, ian, this is the same game i played on the SEGA 10+ years ago
SniperPumpkin: I think it's on the road between the bridge and shenua's house
SnivianMoon: There's a sign.
Trakshvar: That was a weird one. Why do you need to train how to stand still?
plummeting_sloth: aCtually, I just have a question. Can I had you your own ass?
Saocyn: What difficulty are you playing on?
SniperPumpkin: Trakshvar squats are a thing
justwhatever_idk: Shenone Shentue and Shenthree
Laogeodritt: My dearest Ian and chat: On this snowy day, we here are reminded that the winter is upon us. I hope you all are well.
Despoiler98: Oh he gonna kick yo ass
justwhatever_idk: late night monk fight
SnivianMoon: monk FIGHT monk FIGHT
dangerous_safety: late night monk fight
plummeting_sloth: ah, see that's a hint. You need to strap steel on yourself to win this fight
CaptainSpam: Shenmue is... an acquired taste...
justwhatever_idk: Shenmue has Character (tm)
Karfsma778: Shenmue is Not Good Unless You Like Shenmue Already
ElementalAlchemist: steel thy shovel
SnivianMoon: Holy heck, he does so much damage
Saocyn: holy crap the master is still strong as hell on normal too
Laogeodritt: (I don't know why I decided to arrive in chat like I would open a letter in Japanese)
Despoiler98: Yeah this doesnt involve smashing people with bicycles
PMAvers: New technique learned: "Bullet Punch." (Ryo just pulls out a gun.)
Trakshvar: So is this basically a remaster then?
Alephred: Shenmue was groundbreaking twenty years ago, and has not developed since then.
justwhatever_idk: Shenmue is Fun because Everything is a little Off
Laogeodritt meows at @ElementalAlchemist
nemryn: Shenmue is one of those games where it's great that it exists but actually playing it is not so hot
hamdotexe: monks are no joke
SniperPumpkin: Trakshvar not even slightly, this is part 3 of 7?
Despoiler98: wow harsh
Karfsma778: Yakuza is legitimately very good. Just, the best stuff
CaptainSpam: "Shenmue: It's Good-Esque™!" -- Ian Horner, 2019
dangerous_safety: memories of good
Daggothur: "you must train!" see that line on the next crapshot
justwhatever_idk: Shenmue has a lot of interesting ideas that don't go to plan
SnivianMoon: Shenmue is Good-Adjacent? Tangentially good, if you extend toward the limit of perception?
nemryn: It's like an Un- set
Laogeodritt: So where are we in this game, anyway? Was there any story progression over the weekend until now? =V
Trakshvar: Dang so we are gonna be spending the next 3 years with uan as he plays trough the whole of shenmue then? :P
Despoiler98: Zero was Epic it was so fun with you and Jacob playing it
Daggothur: wowza
Karfsma778: I should really finish Zero
hamdotexe: brutal
SnivianMoon: Basically I begin to think that Shenmue III might only be for people who played the other Shenmue games and REALLY want to know where the story goes.
justwhatever_idk: Truck Stance
Alephred: Dumps like a truck.
SniperPumpkin: well, you can check in the morning
justwhatever_idk: what shape is Truck Stance
Karfsma778: I got distracted with other things. Never finished. I'm in the first section where you play as Majima.
plummeting_sloth: I'd go there now, but I'm too hungry to fight
PMAvers: "We're just NPC's in a video game! Run before you get infected with stiff writing!"
asddsa28: yesssss
Trakshvar: So in wich of the 7 games does riyu actuallky find his father then?
CaptainSpam: I... wait. SHE just told HIM about the thugs.
justwhatever_idk: can't put them in harms
Earthenone: NO
SketchyDetails: bahahaha
SnackPak_: No fun Ryu
SketchyDetails: Ian, please play face off on LRL some time.
I_Am_Clockwork: face..... off?
korvys: starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage
ElementalAlchemist: No, I said already. We are fun, and that's why we're not playing Face Off
PMAvers: She pulls out a knife while Ryo's sleeping and she just peels his head like a potato.
CaptainSpam: She says that in the same way someone would say there's an infectious epidemic sweeping the country...
SnivianMoon: If Face Off is considered fun, actual fun might give her a heart attack.
Robot_Bones: are you not 90% garlic by now?
CaptainSpam: Garlic and cauliflower.
dangerous_safety: and limes
Driosenth: Ian, did you manage to snag a Steam Controller? Mine just arrived today, and I can definitely say it is an "interesting" controller.
Laogeodritt: @Driosenth I've had one for a few years. It's definitely an... interesting controller.
Laogeodritt: I've found it fairly nice for watching stuff on my computer from the couch.
CaptainSpam: I like it, though not necessarily for controller-based games.
PMAvers: Always be looking on the Steam Community for button configurations.
Juliamon: I'm a bit jealous that you actually got one
Laogeodritt: (I have a stand that lets me swing my monitor around to face the couch - I use that instead of a TV)
dangerous_safety: ryo keeps forgeting that the sun comes back up
Alephred: Time to open 24 drawers.
CaptainSpam: She always has the same banana and apple. It's uncanny.
Laogeodritt: @dangerous_safety I do too. Every morning. It always comes as an unwanted intrusion in my room during a peaceful sleep. =V
Driosenth: I'm tempted to get one of of LG's fast refresh OLED 4K TVs,
Xafty: i have a 43inch and a 50inch tv as my double monitor setup
Karfsma778: OLEDs are good stuff
asddsa28: right i saw that on your twitter
korvys: "I hope.................... he's ok"
Laogeodritt: Ooh, screaming power supplies are always fun!
asddsa28: this is worse then harvest moon dieolong
korvys: "Did you call me a monkey?"
Jorge4hg: you say that ryo
plummeting_sloth: and I won't throw any monkies off of trees
SnivianMoon: Off to the left there
Laogeodritt: It's probably caps. It's always caps. =V (And then more ripple current through the inductors to make the whine.)
SnivianMoon: It was back in the cow pasture.
Karfsma778: Just take a baseball bat. Pull a Majima
korvys: You just ran passed a bunch of herbs and stuff

Despoiler98: @Karfsma778 or Kiryu pick up a bicycle
korvys: Costco had great deals on things that distract you from your herb gathering
dangerous_safety: WRRRY
Karfsma778: @Despoiler98 Sure, but you'd look mighty weird carrying around a bicycle.
SniperPumpkin: hmm, it's a very low plant
Despoiler98: @Karfsma778 never stopped Kiryu :D
Laogeodritt: Like, out of the speakers? Or literally the display itself?
korvys: Is there a skill book for stepping over low fences?
SniperPumpkin: kinda white leaves
shadownova896: Your greatest enemy.... The fence
Karfsma778: @Despoiler98 This guy is definitely no Kiryu, though
SniperPumpkin: yeah, might not be able to get it here yet
Despoiler98: @Karfsma778 seriously *rolls eyes*
Laogeodritt: Ah, good ol' early-2000s game design.
SniperPumpkin: looks like there might be another one up by the house, but I'm not sure how to direct you to it (if it even exitsts at this point in the plot)
SnivianMoon: There is apparently also some Crow Dipper back in Shenhau's house.
SnivianMoon: There's a flower patch that's a bit above the house.
D1cey1: Into the black abyss
SnivianMoon: Oh no
CaptainSpam: Welp.
Despoiler98: Game.....ded
Despoiler98: And its OUTTA HERE
Jorge4hg: F
D1cey1: It's dead Jim
dangerous_safety: we were told to hurry, and now we know why
SnivianMoon: Oh, sorry - Out the front door, past the cows to the right, and up in elevation.
Electrodyne: "I yam the lawn" - Karl Herbin
SnivianMoon: Also, heck. That's a pain.
PMAvers: And then the voice of the Reptile Brain from Disco Elysium chimes in
Karfsma778: Anyway, Ryo should definitely just have taken a baseball bat to this encounter.
Laogeodritt: Shenmue III: apparently not the epitome of stability
SnivianMoon: I'm having bad flashbacks to when I played Shenmue I with a faulty VMU, and it would randomly purge my save file.
SniperPumpkin: not north: Out the front door, past the cows to the right, and up in elevation.
Laogeodritt: Speaking of things not existing, imagine designing a major sidequest into a game with all its hints, and then just forgetting the sidequest trigger. =V
PMAvers: But Ryo, I'm already blaaaaaaaaaazed
SnivianMoon: Oh, sorry Ian - I should be more clear. It's on the other side of the house.
Karfsma778: Those restrictions. Augh
CaptainSpam: Something on the ground, you passed it up.
CaptainSpam: There was a red interactiony thing.
SniperPumpkin: text directions are hard
SniperPumpkin: especaially on a 30s delay :P

SnivianMoon: Big herbs! Big money! I love it!
plummeting_sloth: that was the end goal for the game I recall?
korvys: "I hope.................... he's ok"
nemryn: Do we have all the move books we can get from herbs?
Laogeodritt hands everyone in chat a monkey fallen from a tree
Despoiler98: when does ANYTHING HAPPEN in this game????
Laogeodritt: Pahahahaha, Ian
dangerous_safety: an Intermodal Container of mokeys fallen from trees
SnivianMoon: That's where they make charcoal, remember Ian? Where they stiffed us from learning how it's made?!
SnivianMoon: Yes, I am still bitter.
SniperPumpkin: I really wanted to learn about charcoal
asddsa28: what
asddsa28: why
asddsa28: its not that hard you need cay
SnivianMoon: Through the market, I believe.

Juliamon: moooo
Jorge4hg: mooooo
asddsa28: umm wiate
plummeting_sloth: mainly for helping that kid get that lure. That was huge, Ryo
theonlyangelx: so Ian... where DO sailors hang out?
Laogeodritt: That sounded like socially awkward flirting.
Laogeodritt: (I would know =V )
SnivianMoon: Ryo, remember the basics of CQC
korvys: Got a nice crop of corpses there, guys
Jorge4hg: well then, eff them
plummeting_sloth: you, why aren't those guards on the bridge doing, like, anything
asddsa28: you wree talking
Saocyn: LUL
theonlyangelx: Gotcha!
Saocyn: take that elbow to the nose
Jorge4hg: First time
theonlyangelx: nono, keep reading chat!
Laogeodritt: At least they didn't restart the background music, like that one game on last week's W+P
SniperPumpkin: can't read chat and QTE at the same time
Jorge4hg: hahaha
korvys: If you're reading this, you're doing it wrong, Ian
Jorge4hg: that was a thing
Laogeodritt: Ryo, that was so slow, how did you NOT react

Saocyn: Big Alpha Kreygasm

korvys: That man is very wide
plummeting_sloth: seriously, there's been 2 people with clubs who keep saying they want to help with this exact thing
SniperPumpkin: time to fightsman
ElementalAlchemist: Well, yes, obviously Ryo thought that would work
Laogeodritt: wait, is this actually a plot boss? holy crap
Laogeodritt: (well, kind-of-plot... I'm not sure actually)
Jorge4hg: holy truck he is
ElementalAlchemist: Let's see if we can demolish this fridge

Juliamon: Kick his ass, Shenhua!
Karfsma778: Kick him in the dick!
plummeting_sloth: nah, that was winnable
SnivianMoon: Just to save some time (because this drove me nuts) this is a scripted loss. Even if you pummel him to an inch of his life, this is still the outcome.
Laogeodritt: I'm disappointed in the lack of ass and dick kicking, as Juliamon and Karfsma put it.
plummeting_sloth: bah!
Jorge4hg: wat
Despoiler98: WHAT?
Despoiler98: Thats a COMA
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: we have brain damage
korvys: I hate to say it Ian, but I think Ryo's kung fu isn't good enough to make up for... yours.
SniperPumpkin: wait a minute, why do you have hexagonal lense flairs rhyo
asddsa28: i dont like these guys why you so dumb get a knife
Karfsma778: we have MORE brain damage
Karfsma778: NEW brain damage
SnivianMoon: Brain damage WOULD explain a lot.
Jorge4hg: the chicken
Despoiler98: WOW really? Fucking GENIUS
dangerous_safety: Ryo doesn't have a brain, just another cauliflower
SniperPumpkin: so all your bruises healed, but you still have this one bandage on your face?
korvys: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:54:54.

korvys: Banapple
Jorge4hg: @SniperPumpkin anime
TStodden: I have an apple, I have an banana... *Ugh* Banana coated Apple. lrrBEEJ
SnackPak_: I thought Ryo was a big Lisa Lefteye Lopez fan
Laogeodritt: Such dejection in your voice, Ian
SniperPumpkin: how will you learn about kung fu?
Despoiler98: In two days those bruises would cover his face in black and blue not be GONE
ElementalAlchemist: I have a pen. I have a pen. UNG. Long pen!
plummeting_sloth: well, everything here is normal, in this apparently occupied town
korvys: Oh hey, you sold all your drugs so now you can gamble a lot!
Karfsma778: There were like seven!
asddsa28: nooo shit
ElementalAlchemist: Would you like to play some Lucky Hit? How about a game of Lucky Hit? Would you like to try Lucky HIt?
Asimech: "Ok, if you insist I won't live twice."
Alephred: That man's moustache makes me unhappy.
plummeting_sloth: good poiint, carnie. How about you and every other man here join me in fighting the people who are occuping your town and beating up old people
SniperPumpkin: zone of no-recovery
plummeting_sloth: since you know about it
Despoiler98: HAHAHAH
plummeting_sloth: there are several stone masons here. With hammers. this is a solveable problem
Jorge4hg: yes yes

Jorge4hg: Good night @SnivianMoon
someusername5: help says git gud

korvys: You have plenty of money from selling that man the drugs you collected

Karfsma778: It's a very good Youtube channel
DigitalSeahorse: HahaBall w HahaBall
Laogeodritt: @korvys What kind of content?
Laogeodritt: Ian, no! That's not how you consume literature!
korvys: @Laogeodritt Just... her doing stuff. Like, making sushi, alone, for no particular reason. Or eating other food, or playing video games
Karfsma778: Is it just me or does it look like that old guy has Big Head Mode turned on?
Laogeodritt: Huh.
Laogeodritt: That sounds oddly interesting. =V
Sogheim: all the buns, Ian. all of 'em
tehlordofelves: Is this the same quality that the first 2 games were made with?
Laogeodritt: Ian: thankfully, we have tabs to open things to look into "later".
korvys: @Laogeodritt Considering her character in WWE, it's very charming.
ElementalAlchemist: yes
ElementalAlchemist: The first two games played just like this
RockPusher: LoadingReadyRun content until the heat death of the universe, thank you very muchly! lrrHEART lrrIAN tiltyhEXTREME
Laogeodritt: (Unfortunately, it's possible to turn "later" into "a year later"... yes, I've had tabs-for-later open for over a year now.)
tehlordofelves: why do people love this series?
tehlordofelves: this is so weird
CaptainSpam: She sounds... like a Double Fine character. Like Raz went to Whispering Rock Summer Camp with her.
ElementalAlchemist: Nostalgia, mostly
Earthenone: are you ok?!
ElementalAlchemist: No, we're not OK. We just woke up from a coma.
ElementalAlchemist: STOP HITTING ON US
ElementalAlchemist: why is everyone here so thirsty
Karfsma778: "We don't want you doing anything stupid. So next time, take this knife with you!"
tehlordofelves: but why did people like the series in the first place?
DrWreckage: @LoadingReadyRun Which Yakuza should be played first?
Karfsma778: Zero
KilgoreTrout503: I fondly remember the first Shenmue
RockPusher: Can confirm, Yakuza is great - also fantastic value for money if that is a concern

TStodden: 1999 - 2005-ish...
Juliamon: It was groundbreaking for its time. Its time was 20 years ago.
Karfsma778: Note: the game has learned nothing in the past 20 years
tehlordofelves: it's like people who still want a Half-life 3, even though anything they do along those lines would not live up to their expectations
Earthenone: get that tigher THIGH
RockPusher: I was amused to encounter an in-joke in Kiwami 2 that only lands as a joke if you know roughly what happens in the rest of the series :D
ElementalAlchemist: Why don't we already have the forklift?!
Earthenone: now the forklift TRUELY begins
Jorge4hg: Also a love letter for the fans who waited a long time
ElementalAlchemist: The forklift is our life
Karfsma778: Finning Spackfist
tehlordofelves: sorry, I misspoke, this may be exactly what they expect. but then they would realize that what they wanted is not something that is up-to-date
ElementalAlchemist: The forklift is the whole point of this game :P
asddsa28: yeah that the is valve they want that
tehlordofelves: it's something that is "stuck in time" but they don't realize that isn't what they ACTUALLY want
Karfsma778: I just want it to be, if it ever exists, to be fine gameplay, but mainly to finish the damned story
CaptainSpam: I'd like to see a Half-Life 3, but I don't want it to be "exactly Half-Life 2 but moreso". I mean, Half-Life 2 wasn't "exactly Half-Life but moreso"...
Jorge4hg: It's not gonna happen, steam gains so much money that they don't need to
Juliamon: well, ACKSHUALLY....
Laogeodritt: for HL3, I mostly want story out of it. Same engine/gameplay, with quality of life improvements, would be fine with me
Despoiler98: De Women

Karfsma778: Ah, well
Jorge4hg: but what if one more ian?
Earthenone: i thought it was based on coin reciving sound effect
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: sorry, onomato-what?
Juliamon: the 'gacha' is the cranking, and the 'pon' is opening the pod
DarkMorford: Yeah, "gacha" is the sound of the mechanism, and "pon" is the capsule falling out.

Alephred: Chai Hu Root - the little maker.
ElementalAlchemist: "Where can I find them?" "In your inventory, dearie."
ElementalAlchemist: And by searching, I mean searching through my inventory
InquisitorGaia: did she call you DIO?
Jorge4hg: wat
nemryn: They need to be fresh!
Juliamon: Did you exchange them away?
DigitalSeahorse: elfunkCat wat
dangerous_safety: ticket, thats the clip it
Laogeodritt: @InquisitorGaia She uses the Japanese 'r'. That can happen with American English speakers - American English often softens an intervocalic 'd' into a tap like the Spanish/Japanese 'r'
Laogeodritt: well, for an AmE speaker to hear a tap /r/ as a d, I mean
nemryn: It's still not as bad as the Morrowind quest log
ElementalAlchemist: Yeah, it's easy to hear a non-English 'r' as a 'd' if you're not used to it
Laogeodritt: (P.S. linguistics is <3 )
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: alrighty, I've gotta stop procrastinating and get some work done. Have a great day/night, everyone
nemryn: I think try looking by the river?
Jorge4hg: Night @RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt
Laogeodritt hands @RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt a parting gift of Himalayan salt
Drakas: i kind of want to say there in the sun fower field
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: Thank ye kindly, @Laogeodritt :)
Laogeodritt: wait, Ian, are you telling me this game has PLOT? Ew.
Martijn_Wouterse: Yeah, I though sunflower field too.
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: take care and have fun, everybody
Martijn_Wouterse: Yellow flowers and lots of sun and such.
Stoffern: Shai Hulud?
TheMoatman: Oh no, you mean I missed all the plot for today?
guifero: Mb sunflower
ElementalAlchemist: I've got a real thirst for some thug blood
Jorge4hg: So necessery

ConspicuousCompiler: Is it solo Ian tonight?
Juliamon: ConspicuousCompiler It usually is for this slot
Adamantcheese: i wish i could become a master after only 5 minutes of trying to punch someone
ConspicuousCompiler: Last time I caught it was Beej + Ian, but that may have been a bit ago. Sadly, I miss LRR most of the time in the evenings.
Adamantcheese: i would watch LRR at work, but sadly it's blocked
Banrael: Unfortunately time for bed here. G'night y'all, take care.
Martijn_Wouterse: I can almost only watch VOD's as most streams happen when I sleep :P
ConspicuousCompiler: Is our opponent cheating by not wearing tight-fitting jeans?
RockPusher: I'd like to see the occasional Matters of Import special - that intro needs to live on!
Laogeodritt: that was back in the Matters of Import days, wasn't it?
Laogeodritt: I think that's about when I started watching LRR's streams
Earthenone: i miss that constuction vehicle fighting game
Laogeodritt: @Earthenone I... wait what
Juliamon: That was a very good game
ElementalAlchemist: oh wow
ElementalAlchemist: Battle Construction Vehicles was fantastic
Laogeodritt: Yeah, that needs to go on my to-watch list
ElementalAlchemist: you definitely need to get in on that
Robot_Bones: Even if you have you should probably watch it again
ElementalAlchemist: BSV is so silly and great

ElementalAlchemist: Assume there was an "Excuse me. Do you know where I can find the next part of the plot?" in there

A_Dub888: heh..... "duty"
asddsa28: yupppp you need to more grind
Karfsma778: EMPTY IT
ElementalAlchemist: If you want a martial arts expert, try not being such a scrub, Ryo
Laogeodritt: why is this turning into such a classic kung fu flick
CaptainSpam: Well, this guy HAS emptied his mind, to the point where he has exactly one thing on it, and that's training.
Despoiler98: MONTAGE TIME
Earthenone: poor red tiger, has to put up with ians skillspam every day
Karfsma778: And are good...
Earthenone: it was the most ian choice
nemryn: "You may start immediately" Red Tiger jumps Ryo right there in the dojo
SniperPumpkin: Shenmue is the perfect choice
Robot_Bones: or was it the bestest choice?
TheMoatman: I got in a bit of horse stancing right before I remembered the stream was on. It feels both easier and harder now
blip2004: I don't even remember what the last play it forward was
CaptainSpam: I imagine Shenmue III actually has an ending. Eventually. :-)
SniperPumpkin: it's a great game to just hang out with
Karfsma778: You yourself said it was "Good-Esque"
asddsa28: i would play harvist moon soooo i would be no better
Alchemistmerlin: I feel like that dude has punched you in the taint several times and you are unaffected. Ryo Hazuki: taint of steel
Earthenone: some do
asddsa28: right
Earthenone: ps2 one has an end i belive
hamdotexe: you play this game so we don't have to
SniperPumpkin: a public service
daDilph: Amen to that!
Karfsma778: EMPTY IT
asddsa28: its full of things
asddsa28: get rid of your mind
DigitalSeahorse: shigiNo
nemryn: Man, I know I recognize this guy's VA from somewhere
CaptainSpam: Red Tiger isn't getting any better with HIS fighting...
erloas: apparently this master has not yet learned the power of the montage
Despoiler98: I hope he gets paid OT

ElementalAlchemist: oh yeah
ElementalAlchemist: we have tiger thighs
TheMoatman: He’s gonna get a clue. And by that I mean Boddied
CaptainSpam: We still have no guarantee what the endgame even is. It could be the fishing minigame for all we know.
TheMoatman: *Clue
nemryn: Endgame is a Lucky Hit board
Despoiler98: @nemryn I quit
ElementalAlchemist: That would be awesome
ElementalAlchemist: oh
ElementalAlchemist: or ROLL IT ON TOP
ElementalAlchemist: We could totally pull off ROLL IT ON TOP

SniperPumpkin: horse stance sub reading
ElementalAlchemist: Subs while horse dancing sounds great
CaptainSpam: You can stance if you want to. You can leave the main story behind.
