Molladia: It must be nice, it must be nice to have Shenmue by your side.
Feriority: \o/
Juliamon: lrrSACK
asddsa28: yeahhhh
SnackPak_: That was a close one
Jorge4hg: yay
SnivianMoon: Oh wow. WOW. I didn't think it was going to save us there. HECK.
korvys: Uh...
Jorge4hg: ian
Asimech: Well, now I wonder how Shenmue would be if Hayter did Ryu in the Solid Snake voice, @SnivianMoon
Pal_Friendpatine: @juliamon thanks! HahaCat . Where do I recommend, again?
TacitusVigil: The real prison was the friends we made along the way.
Juliamon: !addquote (Ian) [now] Boy, I just had a flashback to prison there.
LRRbot: New quote #6621: "Boy, I just had a flashback to prison there." —Ian [2019-12-11]
Juliamon: Pal_Friendpatine I think you can tweet at Ben?
Feriority: Gotta down some garlic
Juliamon: I don't think there's an official Nope submission form
SnivianMoon: @Asimech That would be AMAZING. "Sailors, huh? You're pretty good."
cryomancer20x6: So accurate how the chickens are just barely faster than you. It brings horrible memories back
Pal_Friendpatine: @juliamon ok that’s what I thought I remembered. At bengineering. K
bv310: So I've watched a good chunk of this game and I'm still not 100% sure what the point is. That's kind of nice
Juliamon: đź‘Ť
Juliamon: She's just having a ghost moment, probably
Jorge4hg: She was dead all along ian
SnivianMoon: I'm not sure if it's worth it, but it might be wise to fish our way to buying some Snake Power before taking on the boss.
Feriority: Wait is shu mai better healing than garlic?
Molladia: You have no control, who lives, who dies, who tells your story
TheAudiovore: you need 2 things: Horse Stance and Black Garlic
purplegori11a: Yup
Jorge4hg: and lots of gacha
Feriority: What if you eat the black garlic while in the horse stance?
Feriority: You would get so good at martial arts
RoastedGravy: Snake POWAH
SnivianMoon: Maybe we can trade in some herbs for the cash to buy snake power?
Jorge4hg: shenmue is consuming you
Walkingharder: We've got a different coat so it's late game, I know that
SnivianMoon: We do have to do it right. And as our jacket says, "LOVE FISH"!
purplegori11a: Fish=money?
v_nome: There is no Ian, there is only Ryo. There has only ever been Ryo.
Feriority: Wait are we really halfway through? It feels like we're still in act 1
erloas: if you're not always fishing then you're just a fake fisher
Jorge4hg: define humans
SnivianMoon: OH! Right, we were on the way to the secret fishing hole when we got stuck last session!
Earthenone: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a restricted area.
korvys: Can you ever like... BUY a fishing rod? So you don't have to rent?
Jorge4hg: fellow human
RoastedGravy: Oh, I do have a nice rod, ifyaknowwhatimsaying
RoastedGravy: Kappa
Jorge4hg: lewd
Feriority: This stream is a real learning experience
SnivianMoon: It was past the sunflower market, but instead of going right to the Hermit's Nest, you go left past the cows to the pond.
SnivianMoon: Sorry, not sunflower market, Panda market
Sirius2010: Play it Forward was a wonderful decision
Sirius2010: Tell Paul and whoever he is talking to Hi
Featherweight_: fish for ev-er clap clap clapclapclap
purplegori11a: FISH!!!!!
SnivianMoon: Is... Is she just going to stand there the whole time?
Toxxick: I just realized this game was made RECENTLY and I have SO MANY QUESTIONS
asddsa28: lrrFINE_HF
Jorge4hg: ok
SnivianMoon: Shenmue, I love you, but ya got design issues.
Sirius2010: What?
purplegori11a: Ok
Sirius2010: This animation is mildly unpleasant. The valley is very uncanny
lucha_libro: how many years of penance is this game worth again??
Jorge4hg: we barely do fishing, what is this injustice?
Feriority: You needed herbs for a quest before right? How do you know what's safe to sell?
coelopteryx: oh that rainbow fish jacket owns, i kinda want a jacket like that
purplegori11a: Do it
shea_wolfe: "....To Death!"
purplegori11a: Chop,That,WOOD!!

tehlordofelves: Thanks for the HahaShrugLeft @hawkfalcon8
Sirius2010: Hey @DarkMorford
RoastedGravy: TOS
SniperPumpkin: the buttons in this game seem deeply confusing
SnivianMoon: @SniperPumpkin You aren't wrong.
Akaiatana: This is the speedrun section right, with these splits?
Featherweight_: He doesn't even need the wood. He's in it for the love of the game.
orbitaltuna: how do you know when you get a gold split
Lord_Hosk: is this where the sailors come to get woody
shea_wolfe: This is an odd rhythm heaven game
Feriority: You can tell how good because of the dramatic music
Lord_Hosk: SIR
cryomancer20x6: lol
orbitaltuna: wooooow
Lord_Hosk: thats not how wood works!
SnivianMoon: Well then!
SniperPumpkin: you were robed
SnivianMoon: Your axe has become phased with the rest of the universe.
orbitaltuna: what's with all those bells
Sirius2010: What system are we on
purplegori11a: Ya
ArcOfTheConclave: did you buy the good stuff to learn the tech?
Akaiatana: Don' worry chat, that was an error log
orbitaltuna: there goes shenhua or whatever
Earthenone: personal computer is the system
coelopteryx: that wood-splitting technique.. splitting and phasing through the atoms themselves
SnivianMoon: Time to fight some Thugs! As is the primary quest of the game, I presume.
SniperPumpkin: time for fights
SniperPumpkin: and a savegame?
orbitaltuna: final dim sum? ccolorD
Feriority: A true master teleports inside the wood and destroys it from the inside out
asddsa28: hell yeahhh
purplegori11a: Literally don’t know what is happening
orbitaltuna: remember, kick punch, it's all in the mind
SnivianMoon: This guy's just angry because he can't afford an entire shirt.
Featherweight_: he's so BIG
Earthenone: so vascular
RoastedGravy: @Featherweight_ Kappa
Butternades: Mooscles
ArcOfTheConclave: So vascular!
johnhelix: Kick his ass, seabass!
purplegori11a: Good job?
orbitaltuna: why does this feel like a really old tekken
Walkingharder: So is this kung fu?
purplegori11a: I thought it was just me
RoastedGravy: Looks more like Yakuza. From what I’ve seen of Yakuza, anyway.
SniperPumpkin: it's more like Yakuza's great grandfather
Roland_Malius: This game wishes it had Yakuza combat
SnivianMoon: Nice dodge!
Walkingharder: That guy has a large chest
RoastedGravy: His pecs are bigger than his face. O.o
SquareDotCube: I see this guy learned the Andore Jr. way of fighting
SniperPumpkin: but our new move
Walkingharder: But somehow his pecs are not larger than his eyebrows
ElementalAlchemist: Hey everyone
ElementalAlchemist: Did I miss anything at all?
Sirius2010: We can't hit
Butternades: Yiss I can feel my mooscles growing stronker
ElementalAlchemist: Also, why is this guy a big meanie jerk?
purplegori11a: Hmmm...
SnivianMoon: Hey, our love of Horse Stance isn't reason to mock us!
asddsa28: can we buy a nife
korvys: Unfortunately, Ryo's kung fu skill is not enough to make up for Ian's kung fu... not skill.
boristhewizard: That font...🤢
SnackPak_: @ElementalAlchemist You didn't miss much. A little bit of wood chopping
SnivianMoon: You can skip by holding B
orbitaltuna: is it hold to skip
purplegori11a: Ya
Feriority: The B in the corner started to fill up
korvys: It's not a great control system, so I don't really blame you :P
ElementalAlchemist: OK. That's about what I figured for this game; just wanted to confirm.
SniperPumpkin: so we went to all that trouble to learn the bodycheck move, do you have to set it as active somewhere?
Feriority: I think it will work you just have to hold it
Sirius2010: are we on PC or something else?
SnivianMoon: If you use the heaven flip on these guys, they go down pretty quick.
kat2kool: Won't someone think of the corn??
Mysticman89: to what degree do dark souls strats of just dodging behind them, whacking, and repeating applies?
SnivianMoon: Nice double takedown! And you've got both snake power still!
RoastedGravy: Time for Round 2 with Bruce Lee wannabe!
Sirius2010: 69
RoastedGravy: Round 3!
purplegori11a: Yas queen
Pal_Friendpatine: No D pad?
SketchyDetails: Hey, Use medicine!
SniperPumpkin: settings page 1?
purplegori11a: Dam
SnivianMoon: Sadly, no dpad for combat. But dodging should only require a single push, instead of a double tap. You just need to move at the right time.
SnackPak_: Sneaky, game
benv0li0: what's playing?
RoastedGravy: Great!
SniperPumpkin: well, that's not helpful
purplegori11a: Good job team
asddsa28: ooo good idea
Feriority: HACKERMAN
purplegori11a: Ya
SniperPumpkin: this coudl be great, or terrible
ArcOfTheConclave: Hacking? I'm in!
Pal_Friendpatine: K. Worth the check. Good luck!! To the K&M!!!
purplegori11a: You got this!
SnivianMoon: Go Ian! You got him this time.
purplegori11a: Let’s do this!
RoastedGravy: Did he just go “Ora ora?”
ArcOfTheConclave: Ora! Ora!
RoastedGravy: Okay good, I’m not crazy.
benv0li0: well not for that reason anyway
Pal_Friendpatine: Bricka Bracka Fire Cracker sis boom baa. Ian with the Kung Fu Ra Ra Ra!!
RoastedGravy: @benv0li0 SeemsGood
purplegori11a: Yup that sums it up pretty good
Walkingharder: High on the cheek bone
benv0li0: I mean you're at least not having auditory hallucinations... or if you are other people are having the same ones and there's a comfort in solidarity
SniperPumpkin: oh thank good
SnivianMoon: Huzzah!
purplegori11a: Come on stupid game
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN

SnivianMoon: That is such a Shenmue thing to do.
korvys: I blame Matt
SniperPumpkin: never take your hands off the controls in this game
mrMorphius: lrrEFF
poryout: third time's the charm!
Walkingharder: Don't push emote buttons or you get hunchbacks?
SnivianMoon: Rule #1 of Shenmue: Never let go of the controller
purplegori11a: Come on stupid emote
BusTed: bonk
SniperPumpkin: oh now you show up
korvys: I like to think he keeps getting knocked out, and waking up and it happens again
benv0li0: Lord of the rings would be very different if Gollum's Precious was an aluminium bat
Pal_Friendpatine: Was that Gollum?
korvys: Oh, Jacob is a treasure
cryomancer20x6: LOL!
Mysticman89: Not quite who I pictured when jacob told his story, but who knows
korvys: "Where are you hiding the sailors?"
cryomancer20x6: Ian just bought a forklift on accident
purplegori11a: What??
coelopteryx: classic siri
ArcOfTheConclave: better lucky than good
benv0li0: Are they speaking in papyrus?
ElementalAlchemist: I... want to say he's not, but given how much we're hit on in this game, it's hard to say
purplegori11a: Yuppie
purplegori11a: He knows!
purplegori11a: Or not
benv0li0: Also Ian , you will be sorely missed at magfest. You remember the game you helped me playtest last Mag? a copy is on its way to you with Beej
JonnyGlitch: how about known gnomes?
asddsa28: just get a knife to his neck then hell tell
benv0li0: The official WeRateDogs game
Xafty: ah yes, things that we dont know that we dont know
ieva_art: this man has a LOT of pecs
ElementalAlchemist: Ryo, surely you know words other than "what"
Seagulyus: get some feathers. I bet he is ticklish
JonnyGlitch: or are they ungnome?
ArcOfTheConclave: I don't know who I'm talking to, that's why I asked.
purplegori11a: Pretty please
benv0li0: msg me later I may be able to get you added for not this next one but the one after
boristhewizard: If I become a friendly neighborhood thug, can I get those abs too?
benv0li0: unfortunately you'd have to larp
benv0li0: or fortunately if you're up to it
Juliamon: "I literally already beat you once"
Walkingharder: Go get the stones
SniperPumpkin: ah Shenua: good cop
purplegori11a: Beat him up!
Akaiatana: He really needed to show off his pecs to anyone who can see
Walkingharder: They both have pants!
benv0li0: they are nice pants
purplegori11a: How do you check your channel points
ElementalAlchemist: I mean, it's true. Shenhua does have more brains than us, despite her obsession with Face Off
SnivianMoon: Everyone buckle your seatbelts. We're about to get a bit of, uh... tone whiplash?
Xafty: walks out with like 6 teeth in her hand
Walkingharder: She isn't little
cryomancer20x6: Oh shit
asddsa28: yessssss
Mysticman89: oh my
JonnyGlitch: "lets be girls together"
MegaAbsolKat: I think he just said Ian's literal reaction.
korvys: She's playing Face Off with him
Walkingharder: She found the stones
purplegori11a: Is he ok?!?!?
Xafty: thats worrying
asddsa28: she has super powers
ElementalAlchemist: how did she pull that string
Juliamon: She is the true Face Off master
ElementalAlchemist: Is Shenhua the strongest person in this game
Feriority: His face! Ha ha
SnivianMoon: I consider this canonical now. Face off is actually a torture method.
Xafty: yeah that very much seems like she stepped on his "stamp collection:

Feriority: Revolver Shenhua over here getting the confessions
Walkingharder: I now really like Shenhua
asddsa28: me to now
Armyguy0: Shenhua is cold as ice
Xafty: ah, the perfect level approach
Tiber727: Ah, the classic Shenmue voice acting, the tone doesn't at all match what Shenhua's saying.
InquisitorGaia: shes actually a high up in the triad
cryomancer20x6: @Armyguy0 Is she willing to sacrifice their love?
Unpronounceable: I always like it when games use words like thingamajigger or whatchamacallit in their localizations
Mysticman89: I love me a good thingummywhat
ArcOfTheConclave: Shenmue is awesome
Feriority: You know his name, Ryo, you have a dozen of his gacha figures
Walkingharder: The hair
SnivianMoon: "Don't ask me, I got lost on my way over from Tekken!"
Mysticman89: he has more facial curves than others too I think
cryomancer20x6: He looks like he's from Tekken
SniperPumpkin: his skin has totally different lighting
Earthenone: so we are going to get there and yeh will have killed this guy right?
RoastedGravy: I kinda wanna do a Yeh pun.
purplegori11a: Punch him?
Akaiatana: @RoastedGravy yeh nah
purplegori11a: Punch him!
Walkingharder: Don't let him go. Keep him in the dungeon she clearly has
cryomancer20x6: I thought about making a Sodium pun, but Na.
SnivianMoon: Tripe is nature's candy, they say. Or wait, no they don't.
johnhelix: Rock tripe. Made from the stomach lining of the common rock.
ElementalAlchemist: shen hoo-ah
SnivianMoon: "This is the weirdest business card I've ever seen."

purplegori11a: Ya

Mysticman89: Might just be a pokemon thats breathing there.
tehlordofelves: wind is different in their Country
RoastedGravy: Perfectly logical.
mtvcdm: I've seen fire and I've seen rain. I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
Walkingharder: Nothing is clear!
SnackPak_: Is it behind that tower with the bell in it?
SnivianMoon: Time for a drawer opening adventure!
cryomancer20x6: lol all of the keys are in Gacha machines
purplegori11a: Hmmm
RockPusher: Keys eh - that is a new mechanic that's never been used in video games
mtvcdm: You have 293 keys.
Walkingharder: Rubber boots, sure
Feriority: Is Chai just not showing up? Wasn't that why we ran here in the first place?
Feriority: He had a big head start
SnivianMoon: Ian, now that you say that, I think a gachapon based final boss would fit Shenmue perfectly.
Kaszoski: 6 keys each made of 6 different pieces
hawkfalcon8: Goodnight!
Walkingharder: I took keep rubber boots in the china cabinet
purplegori11a: lrrSCOOP
mtvcdm: I see we've found the pot dispensary.
SniperPumpkin: oh no, it's sliding blocks to get behind the book cases
RoastedGravy: Hey, a wok is plenty useful!
Walkingharder: Folks then cans
korvys: I was away - are were.... robbing some old lady's house?
purplegori11a: It’s like the game parking jam
Akaiatana: Those iron bowls - they were mentioned in the wokthrough!
OldManJohnsonMB: Why does she only have forks?
Walkingharder: This makes zero sense
Mysticman89: The girl likes her chili
Xenguin47: Hello from patient zero of the latest east coast plague!
Kaszoski: You find 6 different coloured tokens, then exchange it for a chance to get a key
Kaszoski: YOU HAD ONE
Walkingharder: Have fun
RoastedGravy: I bet she has all six.
asddsa28: you ok
SnivianMoon: You'd think that if someone were entrusted with six tokens required for a quest of destiny, they'd keep them somewhere safe. Not strewn about everywhere.
SniperPumpkin: they're everywhere
purplegori11a: What?
Akaiatana: I guess you'll have to give it a token effort
RoastedGravy: Maybe this is just a way for her to get you to clean her house.
Kaszoski: Get your magnifying glass out
SniperPumpkin: sytematic searching, I guess
Xenguin47: That looks like a bunch Alexas in a drawer...
Walkingharder: Time sinks would be proud of this
Feriority: Shenhua's going to teleport you home pretty soon
purplegori11a: Ow
mtvcdm: I think 'the hell' is exactly it. Deal with the devil.
SniperPumpkin: that was very optimistic of you ian
Kaszoski: Time to pad the 'game play' out
abaoa_qu: Gameplay!
RoastedGravy: Ian “Give me the fist” Horner
Feriority: Punch the sword token with the first token
Kaszoski: You had TWO
korvys: !findquote fist
LRRbot: Quote #1025: "Do not fist in this room!" —Graham [2015-11-04]
Kaszoski: I hate her already
mtvcdm: No shit
ElementalAlchemist: "Give me the fist!" --Ian
RoastedGravy: She IS making us clean her house.
RvLeshrac: I can't figure out if that's a Japanese thing or a Bad Translation thing, because it happens ALL THE TIME in translated games.
Akaiatana: Turns out Elder Yeh only confirms things
mtvcdm: And NOTHING ELSE
SnivianMoon: Why not put the tokens in the same drawer. Elder Yeh, you need to DECLUTTER something fierce!
RvLeshrac: "Thing X happened." "Thing X happened?" "Thing X Happened." "Thing X HAPPENED?!"
Walkingharder: She said some random bullshit to you before and has clearly forgotten about what she said before
purplegori11a: I found the token
mtvcdm: Elder Yeh, do these things bring you joy?
Xenguin47: Batty batty batty bat!
cryomancer20x6: The Batplate by Wayne Inudustries
purplegori11a: Game It looks like you found the token
Xenguin47: Ooh, a token!
RvLeshrac: Big thing in Ace Attorney games too.
PMAvers: This is the original escape room?
OldManJohnsonMB: I'm all for immersion, but manually searching a bunch of cupboards for tokens feels like they're padding this out a bit
SnivianMoon: Hey, that's four!
Juliamon: We just don't know.
SniperPumpkin: it's a crane apparently
cryomancer20x6: It's a token with a crane design on it.
cantfindremote: That birdcage is criminally small. That's all I have to say.
Walkingharder: "There are six random things in my place that have unique designs on them. Find it, they are clues and not totally things I just misplaced."
CobraStryke_LightningBolt: Thats a Bird!
MadameAdversary subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 7 months!
MadameAdversary: There's a button here. I love these!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, MadameAdversary! (Today's storm count: 236)
Kaszoski: @CobraStryke_LightningBolt You found a bird
MadameAdversary's Sub shared rewards to 5 others in Chat!
Kaszoski: Yes a bird
RvLeshrac: There are an increasing number of tokens as you proceed through the game.
RockPusher: waits for one token to not be in here
RvLeshrac: This house has seven, next house has 38.
JonnyGlitch: It's a Token effort
OldManJohnsonMB: I do enjoy how relaxed and methodical he is about this search. Very carefully, one at a time
ElementalAlchemist: The last one probably still got dropped in the gacha machine :P
Walkingharder: Is there another Shenmue game?
Tiber727: I don't think you have to worry about that for at least a decade, Ian.
JonnyGlitch: anyone else getting dropped frames?
Kaszoski: She's going to tell you to find 5 more of each token to combine it
OldManJohnsonMB: Shenmue IV/Drawer Opening Simulator IV
Kaszoski: Threats to do a fourth one
SnivianMoon: Fifteen minutes later: "Now you must find the seven sacred baking spoons" "Are we just helping you clean your kitchen here?"
Feriority: Isn't it supposed to be a 7 game series?
RoastedGravy: Shenmue IV: The Quest for More Drawers
JonnyGlitch: all good now
Walkingharder: Threats......apt
mtvcdm: Fund my Kickstarter or else i'll make a fourth Shenmue
Toxxick: didnt this one JUST come out?
PMAvers: Shenmue 4: Ryo runs into Kiryu and becomes a better game.
Kaszoski: Yes just came out
SnivianMoon: Heyo! One lefT!
Xenguin47: Da mooooon!
Feriority: Looks like you found it
the_lone_bard: This is giving me weird pokemon r/b/y lavender town vibes.
poryout: i love the way he grabs them like a claw machine
Kaszoski: "Oh you found 5 out of 6 that I placed here, I lost the 6th one outside somewhere"
cryomancer20x6: He sounds excited every single time.
mtvcdm: We've almost found all the Lucky Charms!
OldManJohnsonMB: That's a talisman, not a token you fool!
Spacecarl: That was SO GOOD
BrindleBoar: he had the soul-read, that's all there is
SnivianMoon: The soul read on that Hangman game blew my mind.
JonnyGlitch: no scoped
RoastedGravy: I can totally imagine that.
SniperPumpkin: Adam has the biggest brain
Juliamon: !roadquest
LRRbot: Ready for a road trip? ROAD QUEST episodes premiere Mondays at 4pm on Youtube! Latest Episode: Ep7 "The Worst Highway in BC"
ArcOfTheConclave: Adam buged your car!
PMAvers: No, that's not the moon token, read it again. "Oh, it says, 'I prepared Explosive Runes This Morning.'"
RockPusher: lrrHEART seabatBRAIN lrrHEART
mtvcdm: Rapscallion had to be not so much guessing the word as guessing Alex.
Juliamon: Oh butts, that didn't save when I updated it?
OldManJohnsonMB: At least one token needs to be in a pot
JonnyGlitch: but consider, how many 11 letter words start with R?
Walkingharder: Adam has insane luck
Kaszoski: Not good enough
SnivianMoon: Can't go up there, sadly.
SniperPumpkin: those aren't real things ian
Kaszoski: Back to searching all things
SnivianMoon: There's one more cupboard.
RoastedGravy: Reminds me of the time I solved a Wheel of Fortune puzzle with only one letter.
Akaiatana: Pick Up your tokens, Ryu!
DarkMorford: Shenhua, you could maybe help us look.
SnivianMoon: You just passed it.
SnivianMoon: The one to the left of the back door
datske44: behind the shelves you pushed earlier?
OldManJohnsonMB: The one next to the door I think
SnivianMoon: Other side, though.
SnivianMoon: There ya go!
Juliamon: !roadquest
LRRbot: Ready for a road trip? ROAD QUEST episodes premiere Mondays at 4pm on Youtube! Latest Episode: Ep8 "The Hangman is Hungry"
BrindleBoar: the ol' booze shoes trick
RockPusher: pennyAcqintglass
RoastedGravy: What kind of alcohol do people drink in China?
Feriority: We gotta get wasted to get through all this
Feriority: *shudders* moutai
OldManJohnsonMB: That's how she went blind, drinking shoe booze
cryomancer20x6: Speaking of booze, time for some Angel's Envyyyyyyy
Mysticman89: see, an "alcohol" design to me is like R-OH
SniperPumpkin: are we going to climb a ladder?
Akaiatana: Elder Yeh sounds like a character Kathleen would voice
Kaszoski: Anger
RockPusher: gabyLul
cryomancer20x6: Stupid sticky keyboard
OldManJohnsonMB: HAHAHA
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at
Makimachine: LUL PogChamp
RoastedGravy: It’s too dark! LUL
SnivianMoon: "We urgently have to solve this puzzle! There's tremendous dang- Oh wait, it's past 9 PM? Forget that."
RoastedGravy: Also, looked it up. The design on the token was a Chinese drink called Baiju.
SnackPak_: That's Shenmue, baby
Fruan: Guys, I think this is it. I think Ian is finally losing it.
RoastedGravy: Baijiu*
Kaszoski: I think Ian broke a bit
SnivianMoon: This is what Shenmue does to a person.
asddsa28: maybe she is training when she plays face off with you
cryomancer20x6: This game broke Ian for sure
SnackPak_: If Ian can do LRRmans, this should be no problem
Kaszoski: Cuts and bruises on his psyche
PMAvers: "Nah, rooting through drawers and cupboards is my every day life now."
Pal_Friendpatine: @fruan I was thinking the same thing!!! This is it! The game has broken him!
Feriority: It's a school night, Ian. Ryo's like 15
Akaiatana: Does the gametime pass in real time?
the_lone_bard: I love that voice acting. Just no change at all. "I'm worried about you. "Don't be." "ok."
Mysticman89: Yoiu're not my mom, why do you impose a curfew on me?
Kaszoski: @Feriority he's gambling at 15 then?
Walkingharder: Normally I would agree but after what she did to that guy........just listen to her Ian
SniperPumpkin: nope, can't leave
Kaszoski: She's got you trained
Mysticman89: also we might maybe be sleeping together? You are definitely not my mom
Feriority: Night gambling is forbidden
SnivianMoon: Goat Protest! Stick it to the man!
OldManJohnsonMB: Maybe you can teach the goats to gamble?
SquareDotCube: The Shenmoon
Earthenone: its after 9, what kind of gambling establishment is open at this hour
mtvcdm: lrrGOAT
PMAvers: The shenmue tree, under the moon, rising over Mt. Fuji
Feriority: And then drop a save?
Walkingharder: Lie to James?
Walkingharder: We are close to beating this game
Juliamon: Maybe Shenhua is just used to living in a village full of old folks and small children, and it's literally unheard of to be awake after dark.
mtvcdm: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet.
SnivianMoon: Engage fluid cycle protocol.
Walkingharder: Plot? I've never heard of such a thing
cryomancer20x6: @SnivianMoon Bourbon engaged.
Earthenone: we cant have plot its after 9 at the moonbase
the_lone_bard: I feel like I can pretty decently recreate the Shenmue experience at home. Just waiting around for time to pass until I can progress the story any further, that's basically just waiting until work tomorrow.
cryomancer20x6: Right? Or waiting for a tv show to come on at night
the_lone_bard: I'm not waiting for the shops to open at quarter to 6 in the morning, I'm just playing IRL Shenmue.
CaptainSpam: Still don't know where we can find sailors...
mahpete_: but you forgot the remote in your shoe cabinet. @cryomancer20x6
SnivianMoon: Wait, At this hour?
SniperPumpkin: beautiful rainbow catfish
CaptainSpam: Ryo is physically incapable of waking up on his own, isn't he?
SnivianMoon: Good thing Ryo wrote an entry for every token he found. Super important.
CaptainSpam: Wh... hey! No apple and banana!
SniperPumpkin: I think they respawn at noon CaptainSpam
CaptainSpam: Ah. Huh, would've thought it was a morning respawn. Ah, well.
cryomancer20x6: The apple and banana are proof of spontaneous generation
ArcOfTheConclave: save?
MadameAdversary: No rural forklifting?
SnivianMoon: Late night monk fight, late night monk fight!
cryomancer20x6: Apples and bananas come fromm bookshelves
SniperPumpkin: lrrJUDGE
CaptainSpam: No forklifting, but there IS woodchopping.
SquareDotCube: Clearly you need a forklift quad mech for such terrain
ArcOfTheConclave: spinning breakfast?
SnivianMoon: Tiger Thigh is super strong.
Walkingharder: Eat some cauliflower
Earthenone: thats plot ammo
cotillion1850: so there has been not forklifts in this game so far?
Earthenone: was a gatchapon forklift
SnivianMoon: Yeah, given that in previous games the moves you learned from NPCs were powerful, it's disappointing that the setpiece move wasn't anything more than a cutscene trigger.
Feriority: Does the new techniques being level 1 matter? Or is that just for your overall kungfu level?
DarkMorford: Oh, when did this become a SHAFT anime?
OldManJohnsonMB: It takes years of training to master neck bends like that
Laogeodritt: Hello, Ian! Hello, chat!
cryomancer20x6: Old man hits hard
Laogeodritt: Yeowch.
CaptainSpam: Still hits like a truck.
Walkingharder: You're either a master of in your early 20s
Alephred: Oh dear, we're still in this village?
mtvcdm: Runnnnnnnn
SnivianMoon: Time to say Bye to Bailu
PMAvers: "Get your grind on, or buy the Raging Tiger DLC for a boost to your combat stats!"
Laogeodritt: So y'all, have I missed any Main Story tonight?
Mysticman89: we'll live here all year. I hear the autmn harvest is solid.
ArcOfTheConclave: I was under the impresion that this village was the entire game.
OldManJohnsonMB: Do you start to open drawers faster after the intro chapter?
Feriority: Can we ever come back, or if we leave now will that fight never happen?
Laogeodritt: Ooh, after like a thousand hours, we actually finally took care of those thugs? Awesome.
SnivianMoon: Without spoilers: In my opinion the second half of the game is MUCH more enjoyable in terms of pace and setting. As well as activities available.
DarkMorford: And Shenhua did something truly horrifying to one of the thugs.
PMAvers: Well, what do you think "Face Off" actually consists of?
CaptainSpam: I sincerely hope the next area's background music sounds like... oh, I don't know... "I've Got a Golden Ticket"?
RoastedGravy: And then he drops the key off the tower.
Earthenone: its in a book?
cryomancer20x6: Shenua is actually a kitsune
Xenguin47: A spot for a key!
Mysticman89: This puzzle is for pro gamers only
SniperPumpkin: no one noticed these things in 70 years?
Painfully_Dyslexic: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:19:54.
Laogeodritt: Gyah. So I've been watching Cori's playthrough of Horizon: Zero Dawn, so coming back to Shenmue's voice acting definitely involves some whiplash. =X
PMAvers: Ah yes, enter the turtle. I remember this Jojo.
Feriority: What a puzzle
Earthenone: lol
SniperPumpkin: ok, it's an actual puzzle
mtvcdm: !advice
LRRbot: Hit them in the crack!
SnivianMoon: This is a nearly hundred year old key, I should be careful *SLAMS token into slot*
ElementalAlchemist: solution: push until it fits
Laogeodritt: Oh my God, I love that jamming animation.
RoastedGravy: Reminds me of jamming in N64 cartridges.
Feriority: This is what happens when you build a puzzle that can only be solved by martial artists
SnivianMoon: Shenmue breaking ground with an actual "Bodge" button.
SniperPumpkin: wine and buns, obviously
OldManJohnsonMB: I love how much work must have gone into all the camera cuts and animations, and they are all so janky
RockPusher: Those aren't opposites, those are lunch!
RoastedGravy: Dumplings and Baijiu. The best combination…probably.
SniperPumpkin: this is how we learn stuff
mtvcdm: Dumplings, or booze, or a combination of these two extremes.
SnivianMoon: @SniperPumpkin Don't forget the wine and buns!
cryomancer20x6: No way. Dumplings and booze go REALLY well together
CaptainSpam: I was half expecting the tower to blast off into space.
Earthenone: your bell is in annother tower
Xenguin47: Secret level... secret level...
MadameAdversary: secret ladder-- through the tower
asddsa28: damm
Spacecarl: its not like they have ladder technology
Pal_Friendpatine: I bet it’s food and drink. Solid and liquid. So kinda opposite?
Seagulyus: Earthenone there is a second bell, but its hidden underground protected by a giant spiderwoman
Xenguin47: Repositing wheels
RockPusher: better than a wheel suppository
MadameAdversary: that sounds... uncomfortable
Walkingharder: It seems like it's been here for a while.
EJGRgunner: It means Galileo was right
Earthenone: that pokemon ran out of colours?
RoastedGravy: Maybe it means there’s a sun…and a moon.
Xenguin47: Ohhhh!
RoastedGravy: My God, Shenmue predicted Pokémon Gen 7! Kappa
Xenguin47: Dragon something for the slot?
SnivianMoon: After the wheel repository, we need to go to the grassy knoll.
Walkingharder: Plot? It's plot
Laogeodritt: "This... this is..." Why so bewildered, Ryo? =V
CaptainSpam: It's missing its opposite, that what it is.
Kaszoski: A birb
Earthenone: !card sword of seven stars
LRRbot: Can't find any card by that name
Kaszoski: She had it in her pocket
Mysticman89: shenhua has many secrets
Earthenone: ahh yugioh card, my bad lrrbot :)
SnivianMoon: That is a fair point. Although that sort of explains what might've gotten that thug to talk!
RoastedGravy: Fuck Sword of Seven Stars. I still remember those times.
Walkingharder: You should know not to ask her where she got weapons or where she keeps them
PMAvers: Blood just trickles out of the altar.
PMAvers: "OH GOD WHY?!"
SnivianMoon: Turn it topwise!
CaptainSpam: Of course! It'll defeat rocks!
RockPusher: LRRbot will eventually evolve to know all collectable cards
cryomancer20x6: This dialogue belongs on Watch and Playy
RockPusher: and then, move on to reading our tarot
asddsa28: ooo
ArcOfTheConclave: what!?
SnivianMoon: Ian, your process of realization was exactly like mine, and I had exactly the same reaction :D
Kaszoski: YZ
Phosphatide: mystery smudge
Kaszoski: You are Ryo
SnivianMoon: For a series that prides itself on in-game immersion, having a clue that directly references controller buttons seems out of form.
Earthenone: i wonder if it will teach you a cutscene punch
Laogeodritt: Uh-oh, who threw Ian down the transterrestrial hole into Australia?
RoastedGravy: Oh hey, I had one of those dragons once. They were cool.
Painfully_Dyslexic: is Ian broken?
Pal_Friendpatine: Oh we Kung Fu Panda now?
Pal_Friendpatine: @painfully_dyslexic yes. Basically yes
SnivianMoon: Oh, that'd be pretty cool if it were!
SniperPumpkin: that is a very secure code, because only someone who's controlled by a time traveler could possibly know what it means
Kaszoski: "You have now unlocked the next 75% of the game"
OldManJohnsonMB: How is it 7pm already? Did it take you 6 hours to climb the bell tour?
Kaszoski: Help I'm being talked at
ArcOfTheConclave: National Treasure?
SnivianMoon: A dragon...? And a phoenix...? What could it mean...?
therisingtithes_: Here's my real silly question as someone who knows nothing about the Shenmue franchise: is this wuxia, as in, do these special objects have fantasy meaning/value? Or are they just ornate Resident Evil-style puzzle pieces with no special properties whatsoever?
Kaszoski: "I adopt you into my family"
Xenguin47: The treasure is the friends we made along the way
ArcOfTheConclave: the real treasure is the girl friend we made along the way?
Phosphatide: the treasure is the financial investments we made along the years
Earthenone: as far as i can tell all puzzles are the latter so far
RoastedGravy: The real treasure is the treasure we find along the way.
SnivianMoon: @therisingtithes_ The game is rather yet to tell us anything about that. Even now, two and a half games in.
Kaszoski: The real Treasure is the end of the game
SniperPumpkin: therisingtithes_ the game is ambiguous on that point
Pal_Friendpatine: Hey Cormorant Fisherman! That’s actually real!!
SnivianMoon: It's a map, dummy!
Seagulyus: then she drops it
Seagulyus: and the treasure is lost for all time
PMAvers: And now, TO BE CONTINUED in Shenmue 4.
Earthenone: light it on fire and move on to avoid an ark situation?
SnivianMoon: Smart thinking!
Phosphatide: so fast the game didn't even give you a prompt
Asimech: Remember: Arrows are from the d-pad!
orbitaltuna: Gollum?
Spacecarl: not even gonna try to chase, eh?
CaptainSpam: "Gollum, get down here. That's not even a ring."
Kaszoski: Punch him
Electrodyne: dangit smeagol
Laogeodritt: @Pal_Friendpatine Graham did a vlog episode on cormorant fishing in Japan a few years ago!
Phosphatide: wow called out
Kaszoski: Taunt was super effective
Laogeodritt: Holy crap Shenhua
Earthenone: lol
Pal_Friendpatine: @laogeodritt that’s awesome!
OldManJohnsonMB: "Solve your problems with violence, like a real man"
Kaszoski: WOW knocked out
Kaszoski: Guess he was strong
Phosphatide: damn he really is strong
CaptainSpam: Man, downed by one blow.
kat2kool: Dang why isn't Shenua the protag
Earthenone: his fu has ben kunged
Oatway_: first try!
Kaszoski: We're just Shenua's body guard
OldManJohnsonMB: You bit up that poor cripple, you monster
Earthenone: sailors? here?!
Feriority: The game would be too easy if you had Shenhua's power
orbitaltuna: Oh I thought he was going to punch him in the balls
Mysticman89: would have been ok with a scripted you get knocked out, and then you wake and shenhua is just there and gollum is crying
CaptainSpam: Cormaran?
SnivianMoon: Ian, your Chai voice is disturbingly accurate
DarkMorford: A boat? Are there sailors with them?
Earthenone: i think it was nyah- and ow, not a place
cryomancer20x6: How were they able to afford Gollum?
Phosphatide: the real scroll was the firsts we dodged along the way
Phosphatide: fists even
SnivianMoon: And furthermore HOW IS CHARCOAL MADE?!
Laogeodritt: @Phosphatide Pahaha, dammit, that took me by surprise
Earthenone: look ian, elder yeh wanted to patch her roof and hired a literalist to do the work
Phosphatide: i think you were going to find the phoenix anyway?
Phosphatide: but thanks for the initiative
SnivianMoon: And so we say goodbye to the land of Thirsty Grandmas
CaptainSpam: "And why have the two of you been standing there staring into space after you beat up that poor cripple?"
cantfindremote: "Shenhua go. You scare the living crap out of me."
coelopteryx: roof pumpkins seem like the kind of thing where a bird ate a seed & put it there later
Earthenone: kitty!
Juliamon: Kitties!
Electrodyne: Spaceship of the imagination
Fruan: Speaking of uncontrolable thirst, AFK today was amazing.
Laogeodritt: We've suddenly gone from a pretty grounded, even mundane, story to ... a mythical prophetic story?
cryomancer20x6: whoa
therisingtithes_: that moon is very harvest
asddsa28: what were i want to see that
InquisitorGaia: theres a gif of that on imgur
Phosphatide: ian i don't believe you, that sounds too cool to be real
cryomancer20x6: Don't mess with an octopus though. Poisonous bastards
RoastedGravy: Why is the moon so big?
Phosphatide: clearly that was all CG
OldManJohnsonMB: At least Shenmue travels light
Laogeodritt: Ahh. I didn't see that bit of it at all until now.XD
PMAvers: The moon's so big because this is actually a sequel to Majora's Mask.
SquareDotCube: Better question, what the hell did the eagle do to bring the wrath of an octopus?
Earthenone: and cranefishing
SnivianMoon: We already have five girlfriends! In capsule toy form.
asddsa28: yess
asddsa28: it is
Laogeodritt: Also: Did I detect a perspective skew on that moon???
Phosphatide: wait when did you check into the hotel
SniperPumpkin: Laogeodritt yes you did
Feriority: Don't just hand your stuff to the first stranger you meet!
asddsa28: she stells it
Pal_Friendpatine: Yeah cormorant fishing is a thing
asddsa28: i have not idea
SniperPumpkin: it's clearly just floating in front of the skybox
asddsa28: but i fell like that
PMAvers: Wait, please tell us we just didn't give the bag with the mirror in it to a complete stranger.
Feriority: COLA! You missed this
Earthenone: did we just put the MacGuffin that moves the plot forward in the hands of a hotel worker?
SnivianMoon: Your herbs are still good here!
cryomancer20x6: And then Ryo got fat on soda.
JonnyGlitch: cola-cola?
SnivianMoon: There are more and different herbs to collect, event.
Laogeodritt: So... speaking of sea, imagine intentionally designing a game with a ship that would sail into the subocean if you stay on it long enough
Asimech: Ian said that question such that I now wonder if "eating dumplings" has some other meaning.
Juliamon: We aren't in the sticks anymore, Ian. You have to be civil and not dig through everyone's stuff.
JonnyGlitch: Hawnk
OldManJohnsonMB: Don't worry Ian, I'm sure she'll come back when it's time to maim/torture another underling
Asimech: "Can I eat your dumplings, if you catch my meaning."
mtvcdm: New collectible!
Earthenone: chobu chan is the gatchapon boss right?
Earthenone: :P
SniperPumpkin: I'm sure we'll have plenty of opportunities to laboriously explore that boat
PMAvers: We come back to the hotel room, and she's... cooking already.
RockPusher: guyjudgeAA guyjudgeAA guyjudgeAA guyjudgeAA
cryomancer20x6: Giant pretzels!
CaptainSpam: Still not sure if she's hitting on Ryo yet...
RoastedGravy: Too easy.
Laogeodritt: @PMAvers Using the coffee maker and the clothes iron.
SnivianMoon: Every larger store (not an outdoor stand) has a hidden Chobu-Chan inside, and if you find it you get a card. Sets of cards can be traded for move books. It's surprisingly fun!
CaptainSpam: Don't DO that, Shenhua!
Earthenone: shenhua is back onher bullshit
cryomancer20x6: Those pretzels have to weight 2 lbs each
RockPusher: Knock it up a notch - BAM!
Earthenone: 5 for 3!
Phosphatide: just take the poor man's meat, ryo
ElementalAlchemist: "I want your hot meat, man!" --Ian
Kaszoski: All
cryomancer20x6: Now I'm hungry
daDilph: Oooh, new jacket.
RockPusher: Sir, please, I want to put your meat skewer in me!
SnivianMoon: This guy has more enthusiasm than the entire village of Bailu.
RoastedGravy: Ian, plz.
SniperPumpkin: so many new people to talk to
Kaszoski: Wait, how many villages have we been to?
Kaszoski: EEW
SniperPumpkin: because you'll die
Kaszoski: Stop drinking
mtvcdm: What is happening
Kaszoski: WHAT
Phosphatide: ryo noo
Juliamon: I am... concerned
InquisitorGaia: this is one of the only places in the world you can eat street meat that wont kill you
mtvcdm: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at
Kaszoski: The heck lady
asddsa28: she just druged
Alephred: You are now poisioned. I will sell you the antidote.
SquareDotCube: because you forgot what anything else tastes like by the third cup
Laogeodritt: That reaction was the one I had when I ordered maccha at a local Japanese tea shop. It was HORRENDOUSLY bitter.
Earthenone: drugs?
mtvcdm: I'm laughing so hard i'm coughing now
Kaszoski: A cup of that fine woman's tea
cryomancer20x6: Wow that guy sounds creepy
SnivianMoon: It's probably cocaine.
TStodden: Cocaine!? Should I really be in that? (G'Evening Everybody)
SnivianMoon: They hide it in the vases.
Laogeodritt: 'morning, @TStodden
mtvcdm: Drink those Buddhist statues! Drink them!
SnivianMoon: You found Chobu Chan!
Earthenone: lol
Phosphatide: no-scoped
SnivianMoon: You get a card for every Chobu Chan you find.
RoastedGravy: You found a Chobu Chan.
Phosphatide: "tea shop was amazing" LUL
SnivianMoon: You can trade in Chobu Chan cards for move books.
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: its a discount scavenger hunt
SnivianMoon: Every store has a hidden Chobu-Chan inside, and if you find it you get a card. Sets of cards can be traded for move books.
angryoptimist: Oh, excited to catch on of these live! Saw one of the VODs on Youtube--it was a storm of obscure references! Just the way I like it.
Phosphatide: do you have to buy something to get a card?
OldManJohnsonMB: There's a menu option called 'shop cards'
SnivianMoon: You still have your big wheel tickets, no worries!
angryoptimist: SODA, COLA, BUBBLES, ORANGE
SnivianMoon: It's actually shockingly fun looking for Chobu Chan
mtvcdm: Soda, Cola, Bubbles, or Orange?
therisingtithes_: how old *is* Ryo?
Earthenone: 16?
Earthenone: maybe 17?
RoastedGravy: He’s anime years old.
ElementalAlchemist: animage
SnivianMoon: Shenmue has this giant, detailed world to explore, and the Chobu Chans give you a reason to actually explore it all.
InquisitorGaia: trailer for this game said he was 18
mtvcdm: Edible Arrangements?
ElementalAlchemist: meow!
Laogeodritt meows at @ElementalAlchemist
ElementalAlchemist: hi :)
OldManJohnsonMB: What's the drinking age in Japan?
Earthenone: i mean it could easily be 18* because they wanted to sell it in the west
Laogeodritt: also, it's 18 in PRC
SnivianMoon: I've seen Kung Fu Hustle. I know this woman could kick our ass if she wanted to.
MadameAdversary: Use Excellent Folding Chair Technique!
OldManJohnsonMB: If you aren't sharing a room, how can she cook dinner?
ElementalAlchemist: Let's roll it on top
angryoptimist: Rollin' on top?
ElementalAlchemist: OldManJohnsonMB: Or play Face Off?
OldManJohnsonMB: Exactly!
Laogeodritt: oh my god, Ian XD
SnivianMoon: Dead Rising also ascribed to the bathroom savepoint policy, I believe.
ElementalAlchemist: lrrWOW
RockPusher: lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW sigil by the bathroom door
cryomancer20x6: What happens when you try to enter the women's bathroom?
CaptainSpam: If there's a single banana and apple in that room....
SnivianMoon: Yup!
Earthenone: 202 is shenhuas room
SniperPumpkin: how are we paying for this?
Earthenone: protagionist payment plan i belive
RockPusher: nyan!
PMAvers: He's a Platnium Lucky Hit player.
SniperPumpkin: I don't think we got enough money fishing or chopping wood to support this
OldManJohnsonMB: Oh you can peep in her window, like a creep!
angryoptimist: Picturesque.
ElementalAlchemist: meow!
angryoptimist: So, licorice?
BrindleBoar: so Ryo is a drug dealer? that tracks.
PMAvers: The room's been comp'd from all the Lucky Hit.
SnivianMoon: Backer messages, I believe.
CaptainSpam: Hi, Kickstarter backers.
cryomancer20x6: It's a guest book
Phosphatide: this is cute
cryomancer20x6: That's pretty cool
Laogeodritt: yarekara something 20 something... can't read that script =(
Kaszoski: Daaw
SnivianMoon: Check behind you, if you could, Ian!
Electrodyne: Last one, "rest in peace poppop"
Earthenone: i wonder if Chobu Chan is in our room
SnivianMoon: It's okay, should be there in the morning.
Kaszoski: Lucky you saved
OldManJohnsonMB: Ryo's too cool to sleep under the blankets
Electrodyne: A sweet message left forever in a video game
Phosphatide: sleeping without the covers
Laogeodritt: we actually woke up in the morning?!
Kaszoski: Then Shenua is right there
TacitusVigil: Pfft. Waking up is for chumps. Have you tried just spending all day in bed?
SnivianMoon: We have traded banana/apple combo for the sheer power of FIVE APPLES.
SnivianMoon: Er, four!
Laogeodritt: @Electrodyne It's actually really hard to animate that right. D;
Laogeodritt: err, sleeping under the covers, I mean
SniperPumpkin: Four Apples!
Kaszoski: So is 1 apple worth 3 bananas?
mtvcdm: Get swole on apples!
Juliamon: I wonder if that "is not a he" one was someone's coming-out in a place they knew was safe?
Laogeodritt: Ian r u ok???
Earthenone: double the free fruit!
SnivianMoon: That was impressive.
Phosphatide: i didn't know ian liked apples that much
Oatway_: kung fun?
Phosphatide: fung ku
SniperPumpkin: Kung Fun!
TacitusVigil: Free hair dryer!
OldManJohnsonMB: Looks like your bag made it into the room, so that's nice
RockPusher: Everybody was Fung Fu Fighting!
RoastedGravy: Nah, it’s Art of the Fun Fist.
TStodden: Fun Ku?
cryomancer20x6: What's your favorite kind of apple?
RoastedGravy: I prefer a MacBook, myself. Kappa
Electrodyne: Honeycrisp, with a pinch of picking salt
Phosphatide: this is absolutely kung fu hustle now
TacitusVigil: Honeycrisp is the prize apple.
Juliamon: Honeycrisp is a bit overrated IMO. I've been on
Juliamon: I've been on Zestars this year
SnivianMoon: Honeycrisps are top tier, no lie.
Electrodyne: Yeah, the picking salt is extra fine
ElementalAlchemist: Jonagolds are where it's at
PlusDY: windmill slam snapdragon
TStodden: I'm always partial to the Fuji's, although I will take a Pink Lady from time to time.
RoastedGravy: I didn’t even know they were different kinds of apples. I only knew of red and Granny Smith apples.
TStodden: Fuji's & Braeburns
asddsa28: there are a toon
Juliamon: RoastedGravy When you live somewhere with orchards around, you get to know the varieties.
angryoptimist: This is what I'd put on the Voyager Probe, which is why no one puts me in charge of anything:
Electrodyne: Pink Lady
PlusDY: Snapdragon and Rubyfrost are both new and they're very yummy
Pal_Friendpatine: I just picked up an Arkansas Black apple. I haven’t tried it yet
asddsa28: i have been on a thing on trying to try as meany as we can
SniperPumpkin: looks like 28 yen?
Alephred: Snu snu.
OldManJohnsonMB: To the gambling hall!
SniperPumpkin: er, yuan
Laogeodritt: I tend to fry off apples and make a brown sugar sauce nowadays. Mealy apples are great for that.
mtvcdm: To the Lucky Hit parlor!
Laogeodritt: Also for baking, I love apple crisps.
PMAvers: Oh, so Ryo is bad at being a cop.
Earthenone: do we have detective hats?
Electrodyne: Go chop wood :)
SniperPumpkin: ah, the Fun Fu
Pal_Friendpatine: Shenmu: Detective Ryu
CaptainSpam: Okay, I like this guy's VA.
Juliamon: Can we... can we learn a new stance?
Ashiok_Nightmare_Beaver: Hi im Dave Shen, the Si Fu of this establishment
nemryn: Ryo is unfamiliar with the concept of training, apparently
Earthenone: can we come...after 9
Electrodyne: LET'S STANCE
SnivianMoon: That was a blowout, hecl
SniperPumpkin: oh, Buddha is watching
mtvcdm: That man has been shot with a foot gun in the face.
Electrodyne: bye red
Kaszoski: Feet gun are dangerous
CaptainSpam: Yeah, that guy's voice might not match the face, but I still like it.
mahpete_: red wolf, checking in!
ElementalAlchemist: nice dabs
SnivianMoon: I highly recommend seeking out other training dummies in the city, if you want to use them, because otherwise you WILL hear this constantly.
RockPusher: benginDab tiltyhEXTREME

Juliamon: I appreciate her honesty, since we have been in that position too
ElementalAlchemist: This one looks hard
Electrodyne: These all have two winning slots
RockPusher: ♫ sweet lemonade, oooo sweet lemonade ♫
Phosphatide: did fresh fruits only have one victory spot?
SnivianMoon: !Subscribe Lemonade Facts
Kaszoski: F
mtvcdm: Ohhhhhhhhh
RoastedGravy: Lemonade was invented by William D. Lemonade.
ElementalAlchemist: Yeah, but the ones on the lemonade look hard to get to since the winning slots are funneled away from
Electrodyne: oop maybe not
Kaszoski: Heaven says lose
mtvcdm: Again!
CaptainSpam: Oof.
mtvcdm: That happens every 30 seconds.
RoastedGravy: Oh cool, lemonade and grape wine was invented in the same year. Kappa
BrindleBoar: but how else will you remember you're in China!
TacitusVigil: Beej!
cryomancer20x6: At that point I'd ask, "Can I just give you $10 for the fruit?"
RoastedGravy: A wild Beej!
CaptainSpam: If I recall, I'm pretty sure Hollywood invented that riff for... something. I forget the exact movie.
TStodden: Lucky Beej?

Kaszoski: He can't write straight
RoastedGravy: Woooow
