e_bloc: Corgo100 Corgo100 lets chop some wood 100 emoji
SnivianMoon: Time to CHOP!
SnackPak_: Got any wood?
CaptainSpam: I... WHAT?!?
CaptainSpam: Chop Chop Master Ryo, coming in from the countryside.
SnivianMoon: I want someone with this level of enthusiasm cheering me on at my job.
SnivianMoon: He's like a wood-chopping Hype Man.
Wolfstrike_NL: Ooo nice, we're not stuck anymore, and not nice, I missed some of the game :(
nemryn: Ryo dones't need to be paid, the chopping is its own reward
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: The chopping is the friends along the way?
TehAmelie: if we kept the firewood that'd probably be worth a lot more than the money
Juliamon: A good warmup
CaptainSpam: They've got their fancy-schmansy big-city chopping. They need to be shown some old-school country chopping.
Featherweight_: 52 panda bucks, nice
JohnLockeCole: Hello Friends, What have I missed so far?
SnivianMoon: FORKLIFT
ElementalAlchemist: ChobuChan Fighter?!
SnivianMoon: Chobu Chan is my favorite new Shenmue character.
e_bloc: well this is perfecxt
ElementalAlchemist: Chobu Akira?!
TehAmelie: it's Virtua Fighter but with all eggs
aitsu100: this chobu cant fly
CaptainSpam: It should say "YOUNG MAN!!! Tough break."
TehAmelie: or is it Speedy Eggbert, Street Fighter edition?
SnivianMoon: Put ChobuChan Fighter in EVO, cowards.

CaptainSpam: Does the beer cooler actually say "soft drinks" on it?
TheMoatman: Hi Ian, I'm looking for where stonemasons hang out
Featherweight_: maybe the two sets of giants moles was not the smartest investment
ElementalAlchemist: Garlic!
CaptainSpam: "Young miss, why on earth do you have t-shirts of myself and a friend I met in the countryside?"
Alephred: It's a bit weird having Shenmue t-shirts and gatchapon prizes in-game.
SnivianMoon: Want to try Lucky Hit? How about a game of Lucky Hit?
notarealartist: hello!
e_bloc: do you have a license for these hands
aitsu100: ummmm
SnivianMoon: Wha.... what?
CaptainSpam: I...
TheMoatman: That was a very subdued "Really?!"
CaptainSpam: Da hell?
accountmadeforants: He's talking to you!
SnivianMoon: "Hi Ryo."
ElementalAlchemist: SnivianMoon: Would you like to try Lucky Hit? How about some Lucky HIt? Would you like to play a game of Lucky Hit?
D1cey1: Fourth wall gone
WolfFromPDX: Fourth wall broken?
CaptainSpam: Ryo SHATTERS the fourth wall with his electric accusation!
SnivianMoon: @ElementalAlchemist This is...? I see...
TehAmelie: [Ryu turns to the camera] what game do you think you're playing?
RatekStormcrow: tr4igger area was a cylindwer and you were supposed to be on ground level ?
AntiCrepuscular: :D
accountmadeforants: lrrCREEPR lrrCREEPL
Featherweight_: teeth!
AntiCrepuscular: tilt mechanic?
Juliamon: That's a Disco Elysium expression right there
AntiCrepuscular: time for big cheats!
RvLeshrac: What he's not telling you, Ian, is that you play this game of Lucky Hit with a high explosive ball.
JohnLockeCole: oh hey, it's byakko, suzaku, genbu, and seiryu
aWabbajack: It's time to see!
SnivianMoon: WHAT
AntiCrepuscular: :o

D1cey1: You and your rigged boards!
WolfFromPDX: Botox gone wrong
TheMoatman: Now, has Ian found out about the very important thing in this town?
nemryn: Thius game is so jank and I wouldn't have it any other way
nemryn: *This
CaptainSpam: Nope, it was Cold Drinks. My mistake.
SnivianMoon: @Mushbie This game is extremely jank, but in a way that is sort of an acquired taste. It can hurt you, but you still can love it...
SnivianMoon: I think Shenmue might be the video game equivalent of Malort.
notarealartist: what is this game?
TehAmelie: are the fridges full of cardboard six-packs? what if you want just one?
InTheLandOfTheRisingSun: WOAH! We're in a completely new place! And it looks COOL
aWabbajack: Might be Shenmue @notarealartist
RatekStormcrow: You can check out any time you like, but you can :_never leave
Tiber727: Beer really made a mistake by putting out new Beer.
JohnLockeCole: notarealartist the better question is what *isn't* this game, and the answer to that question is "Well Paced"
notarealartist: yeah but like what's it about?
aitsu100: flash Kick
Laserbeaks_Fury: Sonic BOOM
InTheLandOfTheRisingSun: I've heard that New Beer was just a marketting stunt to allow them to put out Beer Classic
SnivianMoon: Guile's non-union equivalent.
TheMoatman: Nominally, it's about getting revenge on the man who killed your father
nemryn: @notarealartist Ryo here is on a quest to find the man who killed his father
TheMoatman: It is, in no way, actually about that
notarealartist: ah ok
nemryn: But mostly he just asks for directions
TheMoatman: The real dark knights
accountmadeforants: Here's my badge and dead father.
e_bloc: a manhunt, huh
TehAmelie: strangely, that man's face is the one that's 90% Guile
JohnLockeCole: Yes, it is about avenging your father's Death... Through Almost at Random progressing your way through a continent playing hundreds of minigames
ElementalAlchemist: "A manhunt, huh?" "Anything else?"
Invitare: his clothing is stuck to him
SnivianMoon: This guy is absolutely extra
aWabbajack: 10/10 just enough Fork Lifts
TehAmelie: going by the mustache that's a very large 13 year old boy
TheMoatman: But when do we get to drive the fork lifts
TheMoatman: What about part time jobs driving fork lifts?
Alephred: That man's mouth is horrific.
SnivianMoon: *Notices ur larger new setting* Naiowu, what's this?
Juliamon: Was... was that a threat
aitsu100: i think hes gonna kill us
ElementalAlchemist: yes
accountmadeforants: "Where's my father!"
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: so I didn't see last week, did we bring Shenhua?
ElementalAlchemist: You go to the ferry terminal first when you're lost, and if you're still lost when you leave, they kill you
TehAmelie: also he's wearing shades in the shade
Invitare: making food that you will never eat
WolfFromPDX: Is there any sort of time limit on the part time job? Because I would just turn this into a fishing simulator.
JohnLockeCole: we all know that she's in the hotel room in front of the mirror pracitcing for Face Off
TheMoatman: Sure
Laogeodritt: Hello, Ian! Hello, chat!
TehAmelie: Homer Simpson cosplayer
accountmadeforants: Wait, so is there just a dedicated "show 'em your dead dad" button?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: you know what you need to handle cargo? a forklift
TehAmelie: that sentence might had needed some verb
InTheLandOfTheRisingSun: FORKLIFT TIME
AntiCrepuscular: YES
TheMoatman: let's goooooo
ElementalAlchemist: But can we drive forklifts at the port?
ElementalAlchemist: YES
SnivianMoon: Why must they tease us like this?
ElementalAlchemist: lrrGOAT
nemryn: There's a dedicated "plot-relevant question" button
ElementalAlchemist: A job with a forklift?
Laogeodritt: A job with a forklift?!
SnivianMoon: Love Fish!
TehAmelie: why are all the jobs advertised twice`?
WolfFromPDX: *snert*
Juliamon: This seems like a multicultural hub, based on some of the other workers' names. Would not be surprised by Japanese part-time work posters.
Tiber727: Why exactly did they put two identical posters next to each other?
nemryn: IIRC that particular picture is Shenhua's kidnapped dad, who might have some leads on why our dad got killed
TehAmelie: she's almost usually right
Featherweight_: backers wall incoming
Laogeodritt: I do like the posters, in Japanese, in China.
SnivianMoon: The store cards are what we get for finding ChobuChan in stores.
TehAmelie: maybe this is this town's Little Tokyo
Featherweight_: yes
ElementalAlchemist: We should drive a forklift
SnivianMoon: Sadly, I don't think the forklift job opens up until later in the plot.
SnivianMoon: Herb time!
TehAmelie: clearly we must plot onward straight like a steamroller until we can drive a forklift
Featherweight_: that good good ally ginger
SnivianMoon: Ground citrus!
AntiCrepuscular: delicious floor herbs!
MAPBoardgames: This game is weird. There's all this extra stuff tacked on to the core gameplay.
Gnuttor: Ian, you have now made the garden cleaner! Good job!
BlightningHelix: It's simple. Pick up the citrus, peel it, and discard inner citrus.
TehAmelie: this is a city. couldn't you pick up a big can of citric pepper for like, one yuan?
JohnLockeCole: move that, you mean like... with a forklift?
MAPBoardgames: Like I said, its a weird patchinko simulator
nemryn: More like a plot tacked on to all the open-world stuff
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @MAPBoardgames from what I see, its more like a bunch of core gameplay tacked onto some extra stuff
SnivianMoon: We should hunt for ChobuChan while we're asking around!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Shenmue is the ganddaddy of "extra stuff"
SnivianMoon: Because we need more faffing about. It's the Shenmue way.
JohnLockeCole: "while I'm at it, do you know where Sailors Hang out"
BahamutZER0: how fresh can it be if it's just sitting out on the table
RoyEltham: Howdy Ian
nemryn: The chobu-chans can be pretty sneaky sometimes
SnivianMoon: Chobu is in stalls and storefronts, but I admit sometimes it's not clear which ones.
SnackPak_: Swing and a miss
SnivianMoon: Huzzah!
WolfFromPDX: Doh!
Juliamon: Lemons? Those looked like navel oranges
Laurreth: Family: the perfect gift.
RoyEltham: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW lrrIAN
Laurreth: (Experience may vary)
MAPBoardgames: What do you get if you find them all?
Lithobraker: What flowers do you recommend to say "I'm sorry your cat died after eating my rare orchid"
SnivianMoon: Could Chobu be inside of one of the arrangements?
RoyEltham: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
JohnLockeCole: Souvenier shop has Vases, Chobu could be in a Vase
RoastedGravy: Sup.
SnivianMoon: Horray!
Lithobraker: That a super sneaky chobu.
accountmadeforants: 'Fishman, is my dad sleeping with the fishes?"
SnivianMoon: Hey, gotta move those fish somehow.
Angnor33: Blue meth enhances the flavor of most fish.
Kazman20a: i thought iit was shattered glass
nemryn: I mean, you're not gonna pack the fish in red meth, are you?
RoastedGravy: Now I want a skit where a guy is making puns to a bunch of people about whether his dad is dead or not.
Lithobraker: It kinda looks like that coloured chemical ice
SnivianMoon: Mr. Fisherman sir, not everything is fish related.
Featherweight_: I know only fish
RoastedGravy: I am the fish man. My fish is delicious.
SnivianMoon: We're checking out so many chicks so far.
Ridgenator: Nature's yeast sounds like a Futurama joke
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Hey there, wanna grab some buns?"
Lithobraker: Just got here, my head canon is that Chobu is a local good luck charm / tradition, and if a kid finds him you give them candy.
JohnLockeCole: "want to try my buns, they're soft, warm, and pleasant to hold"
RoastedGravy: “Miss Bakery Woman, has my dad pied?” Kappa Kappa Kappa
Alephred: "No thank you, my anaconda don't want none."
TehAmelie: do you. . .eat?
WolfFromPDX: Not steamed hams? I'm disappointed.
ElementalAlchemist: Meow!
Laogeodritt: This person is totally a human. They totally know how conversation works.
accountmadeforants: "Are you consuming nutrients? As humans do? See ya!"
nemryn: Everyone in Shenmue is a human who knows how conversations work
SnivianMoon: I swear those red barrel models are lifted directly from Half-Life 2.
ItIsVey: Those conversations are like that bit from Whose Line where they can only respond in questions
TehAmelie: is this where we can get. . .asian beef?
RoastedGravy: Mr. Skewer Man, has my dad been smoked? Kappa
SnivianMoon: Skewer guy is hiding Chobu well if he's got one.
Despoiler98: where the hell does he get A1 sauce?
Lithobraker: Chobu is vegetarian.
SnackPak_: One pleasure pork, please
MAPBoardgames: You get a skewer with a Chobu on it.
SnivianMoon: I could go for some meat skewers right about now.
DarkMorford: Dat jump cut
SnivianMoon: That guy looks like Naiowu Ed Grimly.
RoastedGravy: Fruit vendor, has my dad gone bananas?
Despoiler98: dun dun DUN
RoastedGravy: Trying to think of as many puns as I can.
Juliamon: I remember there was at least one we had trouble focusing in on
Lithobraker: Ok but are they compliant with Naiowu meat skewer regulations?
JohnLockeCole: are these Ravnican Treaty approved Meat Skewers?
SnivianMoon: Oh, it's the awful tea vendor
Juliamon: Never again, lady
TehAmelie: bah, i got another wooden ball. avocados have the worst toys
MAPBoardgames: 5-Hr Lethargy comes in the same container as 5-Hr Energy
Lithobraker: @TehAmelie I don't know why but you got me real good with that joke.
Despoiler98: UM excuse me?
TehAmelie: tee hee
BahamutZER0: "goodies"
AntiCrepuscular: well HELLO yourself :D
Lithobraker: !adult
LRRbot: Adult currently unavailable, please try again later.
RoastedGravy: Man, Steven Universe really went downhill.
Despoiler98: Holy crap
RoastedGravy: Kappa
TheMoatman: Steven Alternate Universe
SnivianMoon: Uhhh...
BlightningHelix: Steven's life went in an interesting direction.
Alephred: What was the voice direction with this guy?
MAPBoardgames: This game has some thirsty persons
Despoiler98: who....the shit is this guy?
CaptainSpam: This is a conversation by two human people beings.
nemryn: "Nah, food is for chumps"
MAPBoardgames: DONT answer that question!
SnivianMoon: "Sorry, guy, I'm on a strict black garlic and cauliflower diet"
CaptainSpam: It's almost 9pm...
Despoiler98: and fitting accessories
AntiCrepuscular: so close! NotLikeThis
JohnLockeCole: I would think that Niouwu's Leading Budhist fittings store would be bigger.. like, that it would have a building
TehAmelie: Ryu is like a D&D metagaming cultist character who only eats the food with the most hp/ money value cause there's no stats for taste
MAPBoardgames: Is "look at your Chobu" a euphemism?
Despoiler98: Is she sitting in a brothel's waiting room?
DarkMorford: Don't call me Shirley.
Laogeodritt: Suddenly closer to the mic for one line.
Wolfstrike_NL: she's inviting you to her room?
TehAmelie: oh no
TehAmelie: we have become a lobbyist
Redcoaster: The voice acting and faces in this game are disturbing me...
Featherweight_: Ryo the man with no game.
JohnLockeCole: let's all go to the lobby, let's all go to the lobby, let's all go to the lobby, to talk about some feet
Laogeodritt: Or a different mic/postprocessing of the line's audio cl ip. Either way.
RoastedGravy: SkillJim?
SnivianMoon: BobCo?
Despoiler98: yikes
AntiCrepuscular: those brows!
TehAmelie: they look painted on
TehAmelie: but who would paint on sad eyebrows?
AntiCrepuscular: Yeah!
Tiber727: Her face looks like the theatra tragedy mask.
Tiber727: *theater
TehAmelie: a whole baby pig :o
WolfFromPDX: Man, getting a Kung-Fu Hustle vibe here.
SnivianMoon: These meals look more realistic than the rest of the game somehow.
TehAmelie: yeah that lady was like 60% the landlady in Kung Fu Hustle
TehAmelie: or more
SnivianMoon: @TehAmelie Absolutely agree.
CaptainSpam: @TehAmelie Yep, definitely.
DarkMorford: Why is Shenhua, who's never left Bailu, singing in Japanese?
Laogeodritt: And then she disappears!
TehAmelie: that's what videogames are all about. virtual camera cranes cost nothing!
CaptainSpam: Dang. She sleeps HARD.
Despoiler98: is she face down
SnivianMoon: Just, face down dead
RoastedGravy: Faceplant
Alephred: Ryo has no reflection, vampire confirmed.
Despoiler98: what the shit?
Angnor33: That scans.
Angnor33: Those are the 5 americans.
SnivianMoon: I'd have pegged Dick as a Terry, given the hat.
TheMoatman: It's Shenmue, Ian
TheMoatman: It's just weird AF
OmnipotentTrevor: Isn't mark there a character from the first game?
TehAmelie: i want to say it's cryptozoology
CaptainSpam: What, you don't have a picture of five americans (with a lowercase a) in your hotel rooms?
RoastedGravy: Wait, can we see the portrait again?
Despoiler98: those are the only 5 americans
deinonychus24: Take this quiz to find out which of the 5 americans you are
SnivianMoon: Oh! Did our apples respawn?
nemryn: Apparently the 5 Americans are concept art from Shenmue 1
OmnipotentTrevor: Like, one of the guys in charge at the old port in Japan?
WolfFromPDX: Um. Seems legit.
TheMoatman: 5 americans was the reboot of 3 Ninjas
RoastedGravy: There was a band called Five Americans.
Tiber727: A classical Japanese portrait, a classical Chinese portrait, and a classical American portait. What's the problem>
Tiber727: ?
TehAmelie: 5 americans could be a match for 3 ninjas
JohnLockeCole: you would need two more to get the magnificent Seven
CaptainSpam: This is.
SnivianMoon: Press "A" to "This is..."
Despoiler98: this
Despoiler98: is.....
Despoiler98: WHAT?!
AntiCrepuscular: warm AF
accountmadeforants: There's also a band called "Five Americans" from the 60's. And they had a Mike, at least.
MAPBoardgames: Yoink?
RoastedGravy: APPLES
SnivianMoon: Apples, horray!
TehAmelie: multiple apples beat an apple and a banana imo
CaptainSpam: I guess I haven't been to China and am not familiar with hotel rooms posting advertisements for jobs in the area.
JohnLockeCole: Complimentary Apples!?
Despoiler98: dont use the blankets or anything
RoastedGravy: It’d be cool to visit China.
JohnLockeCole: Ryo doesn't need blankets because he sleeps in his clothes
Alephred: Turndown service for what?
Despoiler98: Lets see if shes still faceplanted
SnivianMoon: My limited experience with hotels in China is that they are actually legitimately STUPID NICE and REALLY comfy.
CaptainSpam: "Oh, hi, Ryo. I slept like a rock last night."
sireggsbenedict: theyre "included"
RoastedGravy: Paying hotel fees just for them sweet apples.
SnackPak_: I bet she'd be real good at face off
TehAmelie: and you don't even have to pay up front
CaptainSpam: For a hotel of this quality, that seems a great price.
Despoiler98: does she just move from the couch to the bedroom?
TheThromborax: He....he....he changed his clothes?
accountmadeforants: We've scoured the city for Chobus, but haven't spotted a single you!
OmnipotentTrevor: That was the first chobu you found
TehAmelie: and some oddly skinny Buddha figures
ElementalAlchemist: one dim sum, please
TheMoatman: "No, I'm just on a diet of 100% black garlic"
RoastedGravy: Pressing the doubt option on that one.
TehAmelie: can i get a dim sum for a pretty penny?
frnknstn: Was she coming onto us?
Tiber727: Ryo, at this point, why not just keep the photo out so you can ask more people?
SnivianMoon: It seems so easy for Chobu to be amongst the buns.
Painfully_Dyslexic: has the person who wrote the dialogue ever heard speech before?
SnivianMoon: But it doesn't seem like it.
RoastedGravy: I think they’re baozi? I dunno.
CaptainSpam: Look at her face. She KNOWS where it is. She's trying not to laugh at you.
BlightningHelix: Both of the people selling prepared food appear to not have chobus.
TheMoatman: Apparently the pawn shops have a full list of chobu stores
RoastedGravy: Wow, this vendors have been super helpful. Kappa
SnackPak_: really?
AntiCrepuscular: c'mon!
TehAmelie: hmm how do you get super cheap brand name goods? stealing or counterfeiting?
SnivianMoon: WOW, that's sneaky
Tiber727: @Painfully_Dyslexic At this point, they may be doing it purposefully to tap into nostalgia because the old games had bad dialogue/VAs.
WolfFromPDX: I used to go to dim sum on Sunday afternoons twice a month when I lived closer to Chinatown here in Portland. $20 all you could eat, tea, and dessert.
accountmadeforants: HOT DAMN, that's dedication
MAPBoardgames: That was next-level
TheThromborax: camera
AntiCrepuscular: cameraman pls :D
TheThromborax: damnit camera
TheThromborax: she looks like a robot, but they all do
TheThromborax: maybe one of the sprinkles is a duck
Kazman20a: have to go back and check the missing stalls maybe hes' skewered on a skewer
TheMoatman: Those are big fuckin doughnuts
RebekahWSD: OH! We're outside the shitty tiny village! Amazing!
TehAmelie: wait, does she leave the counter full of soft serve all day?
TheMoatman: Apparently Chobu's between two steamer baskets at the bao place
RoastedGravy: Don’t even have plates.
TehAmelie: maybe the booth is refrigerated
TheThromborax: is looking for the chobu separate from looking for the man in the photo, or are those related missions?
MAPBoardgames: Just step aside as this dude get punched
TehAmelie: knocked him out with a modest boot to the butt
TheMoatman: I too black out when I get kicked in the butt
nemryn: Man, failing that does not seem like it should give us a game over
JohnLockeCole: we knocked him out, by kciking out his knees??
RoastedGravy: Where’d he go?
TheThromborax: that guy looks like a famous scam artist/cult leader, but I can't think of the name
RoastedGravy: Did we just kick him into the void?
SnackPak_: very sneaky
SnivianMoon: Wow. WOW.
AntiCrepuscular: where?!
TheMoatman: Wow that's some bullshit
RoastedGravy: That means skewer man has a Chobu.
TehAmelie: dumplings conceal many secrets
MAPBoardgames: This means meat-stick place has one too
RoastedGravy: Probably.
WolfFromPDX: Uh ...
TheMoatman: AntiCrepuscular there was a corner of a dark brown chobu in the crack between a bunch of steamer stacks
AntiCrepuscular: ugh D:
MAPBoardgames: In the coals?
SnackPak_: A tiny skewered chobu

Despoiler98: Woooooooow

TheMoatman: The burger joint doesn't have one
TehAmelie: this is worse than those frogs in MGS3
Despoiler98: lrrWOW
D1cey1: Was there an oyster one?
TheThromborax: this game takes place int he 80s. do you have to get the film developed before you can get points for the birds?
TheMoatman: There's one at the liquor store
BlightningHelix: The oyster place?
TehAmelie: at least there you knew it was just one, and always one, in every "room"
SnivianMoon: It was over next to the hotel
TheMoatman: And one at Tomato Mart but IDK which that is
SnivianMoon: There are a LOT of shops we haven't seen yet.
SnivianMoon: Hey, huzzah!
TheMoatman: Worst case there's apparently a master list at the pawn shop
TheThromborax: should be called "I love salmonella"
TheThromborax: bloomin'
TehAmelie: those are The Onion headline material
SnivianMoon: Chobus have adaptive camo.
ElementalAlchemist: Replace your liquids

Angnor33: Perfectly Normal Human Simulator 2019.
SnivianMoon: Why is this small child selling liquor?!
pearofsalamanca: oh no this game is still being played
pearofsalamanca: is that how long it is?
Angnor33: You can't trust a grownup to sell liquor, they might drink it, since they're of legal age.
Juliamon: pearofsalamanca it's a good value for the money if you base value on game length
WolfFromPDX: This game's logic is the best.
SnivianMoon: I can't argue with that reasoning, @Angnor33
Juliamon: In any case, there's no rush to get through it
SnivianMoon: Okay, that fortuneteller is 100% a Grey in disguise.
pearofsalamanca: how many goddamn voice actors are in this game

accountmadeforants: HYUK HYAAAR
Despoiler98: Wow overreact much?
pearofsalamanca: i doubt they'll make a shenmue 4
Wolfstrike_NL: Hee knows!!!
BusTed: or some other prepositional phrase
accountmadeforants: So either Ryo's dad never went to these shops, or he's just like Ryo and never bought anything but went looking for their Chobu.
pearofsalamanca: ian, do you think they'll make a shenmue 4?
pearofsalamanca: out of curiosity
nemryn: "Chobu among the Buddhas" is the name of my new self-help book

Lord_ZYRK: This is an important clarification: a cooked chicken or a live chicken?
LadyAiluros: i think we get money for all of the cards
ElementalAlchemist: Oh, it's the horse dance machine
MAPBoardgames: 'Slippery Chicken' is the name of my coverband
the_canuck_mystic: Thanks @Juliamon

LadyAiluros: we lose HP
BusTed: Oh.
LadyAiluros: i think?
the_canuck_mystic: Running is illegal?
SnivianMoon: Oh, it just prevents you from running altogether. The button is disabled in those areas.

LadyAiluros: I feel like he’s gonna be a wee little bookend
SnivianMoon: This Chobu feels like it might be well hidden.
the_canuck_mystic: Wait isn't this set in china? A history of the three kingdoms is a foreign book?
MAPBoardgames: This is the one that has Chobu on the ceiling. Just to bus with Ian.
raven534: So there aren't C.O.U.S es?
Painfully_Dyslexic: these books are all over the place, how are you suppose to find anything?
aWabbajack: book hunting like in The Ninth Gate
MAPBoardgames: @raven534 There are. There was one the size of a gem
ElementalAlchemist: but only part 2 of Antarctica
Lord_ZYRK: Take a look / it's in a book / a hidden Chobuuu
SnivianMoon: Vertical book stacking...

ElementalAlchemist: I really want to see Ryo try something on
SnivianMoon: If you could wear a dress in this game, I would be delighted and happy.

Hexy_Lexy234: i wanted to see him in a dress
ElementalAlchemist: let us be beautiful game
justwhatever_idk: Ryo is clearly a Butch Lesbian
ElementalAlchemist: we're here to be beautiful
MAPBoardgames: Actually, I think the Chobu hunt is a fantastic marketing technique.
pearofsalamanca: was that yellow dress a reference to that old what color is the dress thing
SnivianMoon: Oh my gosh, that white dress. I want to beat up thugs in that dress.
pearofsalamanca: oh my god it was wasn't it
keymaster515: When was the last time you were confused by a yellow dress?
Wolfstrike_NL: The prizes on those o.O
ElementalAlchemist: #PrideFish
TheMoatman: Why would we wear a shirt with our enemys' org's name on it?
BlightningHelix: To fit in
pearofsalamanca: maybe it was a reference to the what color is the dress thing
pearofsalamanca: the confusion thing
DarkMorford: Last time I was confused by a yellow-ish dress, I thought it was blue.
LadyAiluros: calling it, chobu is printed on teh shirt
SnivianMoon: Man, someone just really going to town on that xylophone.
TheMoatman: Actually, why does a random clothing store in China have an organized crime syndicates' logo on their shirts
JosephDeath: In a shoe?
Hexy_Lexy234: hey Ian, i recently rewatched Bylaw & Order and i just realized that Enor's voice reminds me of Homsar's
SnivianMoon: Could it be a part of the light fixtures? I thought that might've been it in the Bookstore, but it wasn't the case.
justwhatever_idk: cho shoe
Kazman20a: top shelf of the shoes, if you back up?
MAPBoardgames: C.O.U.S.
BlightningHelix: Enor's voice always reminded me of one of the henchmen from venture brothers
accountmadeforants: I thought I saw it, but it turned out to be a weird refleciton.
Lord_ZYRK: Same, accountmadeforants
Hexy_Lexy234: @BlightningHelix yeah, i can hear that too now
LadyAiluros: also those are some … unique ….. prints on the shirts
Lord_ZYRK: Confirmed for not Chobutt
ElementalAlchemist: oh no
ElementalAlchemist: We'll have to go back to the dress shop
BlightningHelix: Cool, cool!
SnivianMoon: Dang, Ian, that's impressive!
Lord_ZYRK: He's got the CHOBU MADNESS WutFace
Hexy_Lexy234: even though i heard the wrong reference, im glad Enor's voice was a reference
TheMoatman: What's the name of this store?
SnivianMoon: Maybe in one of the boots?
pearofsalamanca: someone help ian
pearofsalamanca: please
ElementalAlchemist: At least the music is really nice
Kazman20a: top shelf center
ItIsVey: i can see it
ItIsVey: not shelves
The_Voices: oh... i think i saw it
Tiber727: By shoes, books, dresses?
The_Voices: sneaky
ElementalAlchemist: I thought I saw it a couple times but it turned out to just be the boot toe
Jorge4hg: Sneaky bastards
ElementalAlchemist: I'm saying I mis-saw the boot toes a couple times
Kazman20a: yeah that is what saw a bot toe
ElementalAlchemist: I don't know where it is
Zaghrog: I'm suspicious of the shirt racks on the wall
VTMonster: What are we looking for?
Lord_ZYRK: Chobu
crazyjayman12: can you check the lights?
BlightningHelix: Chobu, a little chicken figure

The_Voices: Like i said, sneaky
LadyAiluros: do we know how many places are in this burg?
ElementalAlchemist: Man, that was rough

LadyAiluros: daaaanng
LadyAiluros: I feel like yup lightbulb
ElementalAlchemist: Meow!
justwhatever_idk: cat lives in your ear
pearofsalamanca: are you done with chobu chan
pearofsalamanca: or what
SnivianMoon: We're never done with Chobu Chan
LadyAiluros: no we will be with chobu chan forever and ever
SnivianMoon: Information!
nemryn: We may be done with Chobu-chan, but Chobu-chan is not done with us
accountmadeforants: That was the most coherent conversation we've had all day.
MAPBoardgames: Ian's $10 was well bet
LadyAiluros: all these eyes
SnivianMoon: Can we find Chobu in 5 in-game minutes?
FITorion: I immediately think... check the mouths
Kazman20a: oh, hes going to be behind the mask
TheMoatman: It isn't
Lokolos: Welp I have to go to bed. Later everyone.
accountmadeforants: Shenhua, did you find any Chobus?
SnivianMoon: Have a good night, @Lokolos
Jorge4hg: night @Lokolos
SnivianMoon: Uh, your father is Dead, Ryo. Sorry to break that to you.
OmnipotentTrevor: Wait, her father
MAPBoardgames: Totally sounded like an invitation to me
justwhatever_idk: "Ryo I want to Bang You" Ryo: "I see"
BahamutZER0: "ok?"
Juliamon: !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.
ElementalAlchemist: justwhatever_idk: That literal exact conversation happened multiple times in Bailu
MAPBoardgames: !box
LRRbot: Box box box!
Lord_ZYRK: More Shenmwah (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ ❤
Juliamon: Niaowu is way less thirsty for Ryo, thankfully
ElementalAlchemist: indeed
ElementalAlchemist: Bailu was overwhelming with thirst
PsybrnetiCToasT: Just scorching suns and hot dry sands thirst
SnivianMoon: I feel like Bailu is where all the grannies got sent it they were too thirsty elsewhere.

BusTed: The thing!
ElementalAlchemist: pls gib forklift

korvys: "no... I do" - Ryo, you are the least convincing person I've ever heard.
RvLeshrac: DirgeNovak: You can't just ask a woman what's wrong with her face.
korvys: And you litterally do have money
FITorion: wait I thought you were over 1000 from the fighting... did you buy a bunch of stuff?
ElementalAlchemist: That was tokens
ElementalAlchemist: Fighting dealt in tokens
FITorion: oh darn
RvLeshrac: In Shenmue 2, nothing happened if you didn't pay rent, I wonder if that's changed for 3.

WolfFromPDX: Skewers?
MAPBoardgames: The ferry terminal? That takes me across the water.
Hexy_Lexy234: gdi, now i really want some Dim Sum
TheMoatman: Life is like a gacha machine: you never know what you're going to get, but it won't be what you want
RvLeshrac: Ian: Open a Dim Sum place.
TheMoatman: but what am I?
RvLeshrac: There's clearly a need.
Hexy_Lexy234: i wish there was one in St Catharines, Ontario
DarkMorford: Late Night Dim Sum Fight?
korvys: Stream making Dim Sum?
Invitare: are there any sailors at this Ferry Terminal?
justwhatever_idk: Tinker Tailor Dim Sum
RvLeshrac: Yeah, you just stream your dim sum kitchen instead.
DirgeNovak: Is SkipTheDishes a thing in Victoria? You can surely find some dim sum on there
SnivianMoon: Or something!
Featherweight_: Vic closes at 6pm
MAPBoardgames: I feel the question "You all right, buddy?" Is really valid
RvLeshrac: Around here, 99.9% of the chinese places just serve frozen dumplings anyway, so.
MAPBoardgames: Are we looking for Chobu here too?
RvLeshrac: But a Nepali restaurant just opened up, so I can go get curry momo
SnivianMoon: There's a second board of photos to the right.
Hexy_Lexy234: "aw, shit, yeah! whacky mole!"
Featherweight_: enchance
OmnipotentTrevor: Ryo just had his first emotion?
Chillie: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
DirgeNovak: i see
Featherweight_: If you see the budda shopping...
BlightningHelix: Don't you still need to get money for your hotel room?
DirgeNovak: what happens if you don't pay? she cook you into soup?
korvys: If you kill the shopkeeper, you become the shopkeeper. I think that's how it works
OmnipotentTrevor: He didn't want to send you to his competition
BahamutZER0: what a twist
nemryn: Heh, "both Buddhist shops"
A_Dub888: "I'm not here to buy something" "Then get the hell out"
InquisitorGaia: hey all
korvys: "I don't keep track of shops that I previous specifically knew you should stay away from"
SnivianMoon: Time to go explorin'!
FITorion: so gotothe shopyou skipped

ElementalAlchemist: EASY Chobu
MAPBoardgames: That's Snot a good place for a Chibu!
MAPBoardgames: ohhh... Mooncakes
WolfFromPDX: "I said across her nose, not up it!"
SnivianMoon: We gonna shop, Down to the Vendor Avenue. We're lookin' for a Buddha!
ElementalAlchemist: This is not as good as the fashion shop's music
SnackPak_: mid-sized car?
DirgeNovak: Literally the worst wine label
Juliamon: Did that font even exist in 1987?
MAPBoardgames: This is unlike any pawnshop I've ever seen
DirgeNovak: probably not
SnivianMoon: Do we have enough Chobu cards to buy something yet?
CaptainSpam: Ah, Vendor Avenue. Right down the street from Marvin Gardens. Wait, no...
justwhatever_idk: "Yes I run a Pawn Shop, but I'm *also* a massive piece of shit!"
Lithobraker: Glasgow smile the character design
Juliamon: k e y s
SnivianMoon: This game is a completionist's nightmare, I'd wager.
MAPBoardgames: Key sets? What is this? Let's Nope?
CaptainSpam: How many of those things ARE there in this city?
BlightningHelix: Is it his chobu? Or did someone have to pawn their chobu?
ElementalAlchemist: Refrigerated Chobu?
BusTed: wasted
Featherweight_: there are a ton
Juliamon: I mean, it IS Vendor Avenue
Lithobraker: So are chobu good luck charms or something?
DirgeNovak: has... has yu suzuki ever seen an actual child?
WolfFromPDX: LMAO
MAPBoardgames: Oh, reeeeaaalllly....
ElementalAlchemist: She didn't break up with us... she just wasn't really our girlfriend
Lithobraker: Uranium not nearly ductile enough. Gold or copper might be able to work
ElementalAlchemist: Face Off isn't what we value in a romantic partner :P
WolfFromPDX: I usually don't laugh at kids getting hurt, but in this case ...
MAPBoardgames: What's the chobu count up to?
Kazman20a: chobo for days
DarkMorford: Look at all those chickens!
ItIsVey: I think there's like 100 chobu to collect or so
ElementalAlchemist: I assume we can't get the forklift job yet?
SnivianMoon: There was also an herb merchant there. Can we sell some of our sets?
Lord_ZYRK: Free extension cord PogChamp
SnivianMoon: This guy looks like a retired Inspected Zenegata
Lord_ZYRK: Fite me 1 v Chobu SwiftRage
Featherweight_: where are the laser disk players

MAPBoardgames: Hide Chobu in Smash, you cowards!
SnivianMoon: I just saw it
BahamutZER0: and then chobu was hidden in one of the tv's video feeds
Lord_ZYRK: ^ that's what I was thinking LUL
LadyAiluros: I wanted chobu to be in the blender and I am a bad person and I do not feel bad
MAPBoardgames: there was a gap between the fridges
Lithobraker: What is a chobu? Is it a good luck charm?
SnivianMoon: I have spied it if you want me to share the location!
DirgeNovak: did CDs exist in 87? Or are those laserdisc players?
justwhatever_idk: All the pieces of crap line up into the shape of a Chobu
Anubis169: o hai ian & chat

wrathofwood: want to try a game of lucky hit?
Featherweight_: Danger and fish
ElementalAlchemist: That was gloriously unhelpful
SnivianMoon: No problem! Happy to help the Chobu hunt. It's surprinsingly compelling.
BahamutZER0: by the way would you like to purchase an inexpensive insurance policy?
MAPBoardgames: No wonder that dude wanted to beat up that fortune teller.
Anubis169: hey at least he didn't try the "What kind of danger?" ... "Can't quite make it out, $20 more please."
BusTed: pennyFeed
Kazman20a: no running? because they couldn't sync the stairs animation?
TehAmelie: Kowloon walled city exists in this time doesn't it
Anubis169: If you do a shenmue tour, you have to wear the jackets
Juliamon: We theorized no running because loading zones
Chillie blushes
ElementalAlchemist: you bet we want tackle
ElementalAlchemist: pls tackle me
Anubis169 pounces on ElementalAlchemist
Anubis169: Gotcha! (as requested)
SnivianMoon: That is a steep cost.

Lithobraker: China is on my list of places to go after the genocide stops...
Anubis169: could take a while
Anubis169: how long do we have for fishing?
Alephred: What a weird name for a fishing rod.
BusTed: i wonder if it was a backer.
Juliamon: Running on the docks? How risky!
MAPBoardgames: It's just a racket, there is NO fishing spot.
Anubis169: yeah he's a scientist
GrittyGramps: huh, he has a twitter

Chillie: That's a dinner you caught.
TehAmelie: that's food for four days
MAPBoardgames: That's a hell of several meals

LRRbot: Quote #4798: "Did you know fish scream? Well not really "scream" but they make a horrible gargling noise when you hit them in the head." —Cameron [2018-03-15]
Chillie: guys, apart from water, does this background look static to you?
Anubis169: Ian: Interesting fact of the day, did you know trout can grow as big as a whopping 9kg?
nemryn: It's a very pretty static background tho
Anubis169: they're line-breakers :D
TheMerricat: ake trout are the largest of the chars; the record weighed almost 102 pounds (46 kg) (netted) with a length of 50 inches (130 cm), and 15–40-pound (6.8–18.1-kilogram) fish are not uncommon. The average length is 24–36 inches (61–91 centimetres).
TehAmelie: the larger ones always taste less, it's a law of nature
SnivianMoon: Heck, this is still a pretty good haul so far.
Anubis169: lrrSPOOP
Anubis169: what the actual hell
Alephred: How many kg of fish does one man need?

BusTed: is that a gundam reference
Anubis169: green, yellow and red
TehAmelie: rent a man a fishing pole and he'll feed the city
TheMerricat: Not without their gundam they aren't.
MAPBoardgames: Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
Anubis169: ^
SnivianMoon: We seem to have escaped the Carp curse of Bailu, too.
Chillie: Can you catch anything other than fish here?
Skyboss1996: this is a more traditional "Fishing" simulation
TehAmelie: interesting addendum, from an experiment done in some region in east Africa it seems if you give a man 400 dollars no questions asked he'll teach himself to fish and start a business
Featherweight_: can't even hit the fish with a bike
Skyboss1996: Not enough hitting fish with bikes. 0/10 IGN
Anubis169: Also fun thing I experienced a couple months back, was at the koi company picking up some frozen rats for my pet snake and looked in the pond. Tons of large Carp in there, beautiful... then I almost fell over backwards from shock when a small shark-sized Sturgeon came to the surface to say hello <3
DirgeNovak: Too much water 7.8/10
Lithobraker: Press X to hit fish with motorcycle
nemryn: Can't hit the fish with a bike, can't date the fish, what is this bs
TehAmelie: quite spelled koi-t?
Anubis169: it was gorgeous though
Skyboss1996: Hello Hooman! Am Fish! Feed?!
Anubis169: lovely fins all down its body
MAPBoardgames: @TehAmelie I've heard that.
FITorion: please quote that
Anubis169: the kind you want to give a big hug even though you know you can't travHert
Skyboss1996: Ah yes its now FOUR O CLOCK
TehAmelie: by the way, don't tap on the glass https://i.imgur.com/x8jtl9D.gif
korvys: It's a monitor, I think
Lord_ZYRK: ^
Skyboss1996: it's one of them monitors
Anubis169: it's a monitor <3
TehAmelie: huh
SnivianMoon: Out of curiosity, what's on tap for Rhythm Cafe this week?
Skyboss1996: what's the forklift situation in this game?
Anubis169: btw, if you ever fancy in-game fishing as a calming activity, hit up Black Desert Online
Anubis169: lo-fi ping pong?
SnivianMoon: Oh, neat, I'm curious as well! That sounds interesting.
Skyboss1996: Give us the forklift you cowards lrrFRUMP
ElementalAlchemist: So far we are unable to forklift, but the game has told us there is one
ElementalAlchemist: We're all anticipating that
accountmadeforants: Let Ryo lift fork, you cowards!
SnivianMoon: I'm hoping there's racing, eventually.
TheMoatman: But can we race them
Anubis169: you can forklift a forklift...
TehAmelie: how many kgs of fish will we need to buy a forklift?
Skyboss1996: *OSHA wants to know your location*
DirgeNovak: Can't wait to see your revenge on Beej on RQ
Alephred: I hope forlift-chan notices me!
Alephred: *forklift
Skyboss1996: it did not go unpunished
TheMoatman: Murderous intent
Skyboss1996: can we win dynamite from the gashapon machines?
SnivianMoon: I definitely gasped audibly when that mud/sand toss happened in Road Quest.
Skyboss1996: to speed up fishing?
TehAmelie: Beej did not plan that move all the way through i suppose
justwhatever_idk: A friend of mine's moonroof recently just, fell out
constablecrab: Can you actually do that?
LadyAiluros: waht in game time does it cut you off at?
DirgeNovak: how many episodes are left on RQ, btw?
Lithobraker: I'd take a moon pool over a sun roof any day of the week
justwhatever_idk: Yeah, especially we just had a snow storm and he's not had time to fix it lol
TehAmelie: we had a theory you get cut off when you have too much fish to carry
Juliamon: RQ is a 12-episode series
Juliamon: !roadquest
LRRbot: Ready for a road trip? ROAD QUEST episodes premiere Mondays at 4pm on Youtube! Latest Episode: Ep8 "The Hangman is Hungry" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RoOHFvaTlQ
Skyboss1996: AH
ElementalAlchemist: Hi Heather
SnivianMoon: That's a lot of fish.
Featherweight_: the next ep scares me
Juliamon: We caught the One Good Fish on the first try
LadyAiluros: that’s not too bad
TehAmelie: so disappointing when you catch a monster first thing and then nothing but small fry all day
Skyboss1996: he's not wrong
SnivianMoon: I feel like we got a better rate in Bailu?
BusTed: slytqShrug
InquisitorGaia: -50 for the rental
Anubis169: 1 whopper, bunch of normies and a few tiddlers
LadyAiluros: i mean you paid for your rooom for the night and soome foods
Anubis169: that's a nice looking hotel
TehAmelie: Shenhua showing signs of having an independent life? gasp
Skyboss1996: oh lord he's a cat
SnivianMoon: Could make an international phone call, if you wanted to
Anubis169: this is the 80s isn't it?
D1cey1: Yup
D1cey1: 1987
Anubis169: an international phonecall would probably cost the 313 we just made :D
SnivianMoon: It's 5 yuan a call, apparently.
Skyboss1996: mm. free apples
Juliamon: This game is slightly anachronistic in spots. In this case, for the sake of gameplay.
TehAmelie: funny story, when i was 1 years old i called someone in the US on mom's rotary phone. twice.
TehAmelie: she may have remembered that mostly due to the phone bill
