SnivianMoon: Forks out... porks out?
PharaohBender27: Love how this port just ships presumably valuable vases and antiques without packaging them in any way
PharaohBender27: Also electronics\
DanielJGrouse: in this universe clearly no packaging is needed, you can slam those vases against the wall and nothing happens
tandtrollog: they are obviously just chinese counterfeits =P
SnivianMoon: Part of me wishes the forklift game had a 'damage' component to the cargo, where if you drive carelessly, you get less money for having damaged stuff. Another part of me knows that would be positively irritating.
TheSpindash: Pointlessly irritating, you say?
PharaohBender27: @tandtrollog Yeah but they presumably need to get overseas intact so gullible customers can buy them!
tandtrollog: true
Mox_Hagdorm: Um

Phosphatide: yeah we're playing it now Kappa
Suhono: @DanielJGrouse you'll be pleased to know that not counting this one, there are multiple
Phosphatide: last spurt
Phosphatide: that impact should've definitely made that vase fall LUL
TheSpindash: Mixed reviews
Wolfstrike_NL: go for 8 yea, no more driving for the crate
Piratical_tendancies: lots of time lost being forced slow in the warehouse

Phosphatide: "yeah sorry, i couldn't concentrate, my friend got kidnapped yesterday..." "oh sorry to hear that, hope you feel better tomorrow"
PendelSteven: Shenmue 3
DanielJGrouse: Ian is over this forking game
Piratical_tendancies: !y
PharaohBender27: @Askilian Did you just arrive? This is Shenmue 3. It's . . . an acquired taste
TheSpindash: Don't worry, I'm sure the entirety of the next Play It Forward will be the credits thanking all the backers
DanielJGrouse: spend all your money
PharaohBender27: And honestly I feel like I'm more entertained watching lrrIAN play this than I'd be doing it myself, aside from forklifting
Phosphatide: saving in front of the gatcha i see
Mox_Hagdorm: !badadvice
LRRbot: Test the death pit.
chickenace11: haven't seen Ian play this game before but there is a duck temple? i need it now. Kappa
Askilian: @PharaohBender27 Yeah I heard many things about the games, firt yime I see it playing live (aside from the demo) and... Wow. I dunno how to feel. Poor Ian :(

Sarah_Serinde: Stoffern Yes, we've tried a number of times to get it, it's rare if not the rarest, and after previous efforts we just got it on the first try :D
PendelSteven: GamesRadar gave it 4/5, describing it as "a magnificent, authentic, totally uncompromised sequel that crucially ignores virtually every gaming trend of the past 18 years
Armyguy0: Same as them
Phosphatide: this is where we get to say "hi youtube" right 4Head
Armyguy0: I JUST got done with vods today

PharaohBender27: @Askilian Indeed
Sarah_Serinde: Askilian Totally all good :)
PendelSteven: I often forget this game came out not even three months ago
DanielJGrouse: can't wait to learn that the castle is actually a location of its own, complete with gacha's, lucky hit, fishing and kung fu monks we have to beat

PendelSteven: it seems as rythmic as SMB3
r10pez10: space fridges
IsaTheEngie: unless it's an mmo or action RPG where the colored part is the bits that hurt you
PendelSteven: nice work done in Unity, yes, but not a rhythm game
PendelSteven: If anything this is more like F-Zero
SquareDotCube: it's the chevron. If it were an X or caution stripes it'd feel more natural to avoid.
Alness49: It's the first person Battletoads you never asked for
TheSpindash: I'm just finding it hard to visually parse it.
ToastyLoaff: Im getting a battle toads vibe
4dSwissCheese: Hey y'all! How we doing tonight?
ToastyLoaff: the dreded 3rd level
BrowneePoints: Oooo the level 3!
Enmity777: The gameplay loop of this reminds me of Super Hexagon
korvys: Quick restart is nice
rybackgaming: Heather and Ian Battletoads stream when?
PendelSteven: The Turbo Tunnel
TheSpindash: Battletoads is a game with a level made incredibly hard because the testers, the -testers- said it was too easy.
BrowneePoints: Can't believe people intentionally made the 3rd Level insanely hard to convince video game renters to buy the game
merrja: have they ever played Retro/Grade on Rhythm Cafe?
Pteraspidomorphi: No keyboard support?
TheMoatman: Use the stick! (Don't use the stick!)
GDwarf: Is Retro/Grade the shmup where time's backwards?
BrowneePoints: So..i'm finding it easier to look at the lines and not the walls
kusinohki: I'd think you could play this using the R/L triggers... *shrug*
r10pez10: when i think of Rhythm Cafe i think of Dance de la Muerte
merrja: it's the reverse spaceship
BrowneePoints: The lines get more solid the closer the walls get to you
Lithobraker: I need someone to ambiguously say "begin" or "again" at the beginning of each try
BrowneePoints: I'm just glad you two enjoyed Songbird Symphony
SniperPumpkin: oof, they weren't kidding with that photo sensitivity warning. this is not a game I can watch comfortably
merrja: I liked the NGE one
kusinohki: video games have stories? :P
ToastyLoaff: Can someone link that rant?
SAJewers: heh
GDwarf: I think more rhythm games have stories than not
SniperPumpkin: Time for stream-as-podcast
BrowneePoints: Dear Nintendo: Please give us Elite Beat Agents 2
GDwarf: Sometimes those stories are terrible, but they still exist. :P
HoloTheWiseWolf_: this feels a lot like race against the sun
Laogeodritt: This seems like un-fun levels of frustrating? I dunno how it handles but it seems too fast to comfortably react
GDwarf: Race the Sun is less frustrating than this, though
TheSpindash: My biggest criticism of this game is that it has not yet congratulated Josh on his birthday.

Faulpyr: This reminds me of Super Hexagon
GDwarf: HoloTheWiseWolf_ Maybe? Beat Hazard makes my optic nerve hurt so I can't play it. :P
BrowneePoints: Paperman is so good
gek_tw0: does this game have a vr version? seems kinda like a depth perception design
Alness49: R get!
minachirp: The tilts are so violent that it seems hard to see when you're gonna run into something
HoloTheWiseWolf_: yea beat hazard is not kind to the eyes.
HoloTheWiseWolf_: wish it had spotify integration since how many of us store music in mp3's on our pc these days
HoloTheWiseWolf_: oh beat hazard 2 is out and has that intergration
GDwarf: I mean, I store all my music locally. :P
dungeonmaster099: it is also the same song from liv one so it might not be rhythm game
BrowneePoints: Yea Heather went Right and it blocked her
GDwarf: But yeah, Beat Hazard quite literally makes my eyes hurt and gives me pulsing headaches. It's kinda astonishing.
BrowneePoints: Ooo new song!

IsThis___Art: @CleeKru same. its the big things flying toward my head
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Naruto never clicked with me, and i wish Bleach hadn't

RealGamerCow: Netflix intentionally cancels shows after 2 seasons because they get fewer new subs after that point.
BrowneePoints: except for One-Punch Man
Questhere: ill take bleach filler over naruto filler any day
Pteraspidomorphi: 2 seasons is pretty good. A lot of shows today that could have used 2 only get 1
RealGamerCow: Because Neflix knows art is about maximum profit

Bladinus: I prefer < 50 episode series myself.. I'd rather like to get a completed story than something that just goes on endlessly...
gek_tw0: face block
Pteraspidomorphi: Definitely
BrowneePoints: Yea I think that's why I liked FMA:B so much. It's a long plot, but it's not so many episodes that it meanders
MaladyDark: so the average song length of pop music in the 50-60's was under 3minutes. this is why this was chosen as the length for Eurovision. Pop Songs got a lot longer over the next decades

kusinohki: @Bladinus same. I wonder what anime (based on manga) would be like if they waited until the manga was finished first (FMA brotherhood for example). I can only assume it's less marketable that way though
Lysander_Gustav: Hello folks!
BrowneePoints: You know, I think that's why I like JoJo so much
TheMerricat: evening chat! how goes the rhythm?
GDwarf: The lead time on anime series means that if you wait for a manga to be finished you're a year-plus after people have stopped talking about it
kusinohki: @MaladyDark wasn't the 3min song basically a result of the "single vinyl"? it wouldn' tfit if it was longer? or something?
BrowneePoints: it's a continuous "story" but self contained parts with shorter series lengths
dungeonmaster099: well fruit basket is one they doing now
GDwarf: Plus, you never know when a manga might peak and start losing its audience
Juliamon: NOOOO
HoloTheWiseWolf_: as much as people dont like it i think sword art online is doing that, they seem to be making it as the light novels are finished
Lysander_Gustav: This looks a little like audiosurf but with a splashier camera and more motion sickness
korvys: literally 5 frames away
TheMerricat: So I'm assuming this one is less song based and more twitchy?
kusinohki: green = go?
rybackgaming: Heather. Don't hug me. I'm scared.
CWaltz86: a dont hug me joke? in 2020?
ToastyLoaff: Isnt this an avoid-em-up? now you gotta not avoid?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: im waiting for an orange to be right behind a green
Nicarrow: hi all
BrowneePoints: Okay Ian
ToastyLoaff: done
BrowneePoints: but if Crash is legit the next Smash character...
kusinohki: @GDwarf I get all that, but I can't help but feel a lot of the shonun jump series would be better if they took 1/3 as many eps, but that's not an option due to production and cashing in on the 'hype wave". *shrug*
TheMerricat: So I came in late chat. I get the don't hit the blocks thing, what's with the colored ribbons?
korvys: I would have assumed Crash was in Playstation All-Stars
breadisbest1: seems like a area from tron
BrowneePoints: @TheMerricat Stay on Green, move in the direction blue tells you, avoid red
TheMerricat: thanks @breadisbest1
kusinohki: @TheMerricat avoid red, follow green. follow green until arrow. I think??
kusinohki: grr. 2nd green = blue...
dalefriesen: Is crashing good in this game?
BrowneePoints: Well plus Banjo and Ken/Ryu totally deserved to be in Smash, and Hero. Massive history on Nintendo systems
ANeMzero: @korvys Actvision owns Crash and Spyro and doesn't play well with others. Same reason why neither showed up on the PS Classic either.
GDwarf: I...what?
korvys: I mean, All-stars has Raiden, and Smash has Snake, so we all know All-stars, so All-stars was never going to win, really.
CWaltz86: this game feels super too fast
jadedcynic: oh wow, Blue Blazers?!? woof!

Sarah_Serinde: Ah, hard to tell sometimes in text
Spirrie: Fair
Sarah_Serinde: HoloTheWiseWolf_ I feel like there's a reference or something that I'm missing here
TheMerricat: Just think how long it took from LRR to decide they were definately doing Road Quest and the first Eps showing up on Youtube. :-)
HoloTheWiseWolf_: just making a real angry face so it can be a cross cross stitch
Dog_of_Myth: @TheMerricat LUL
GDwarf: It's fun to map out an entire complex process and realize just how incredibly convoluted these things can be
TheMerricat: And sorry @dalefriesen got called away just as I hit submit and missed your thanks. :-) Np and thanks for the enjoyment you've given me being a guest on LRR :-)
Sarah_Serinde: HoloTheWiseWolf_ I mean I've done ಠ_ಠ does that count? :D

Sarah_Serinde: Thanks friends lrrHEART
silverfur64: Sounds like a loophole I used once when playing D&D. A book had a weight of like 1 lbs. Paper had negligible weight, and therefore nothing to calculate. So I just bought 500 sheets of paper and recorded no weight.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun Google was meant to be the choosen one, now it's just another Valve.
Juliamon: The bigger the corporation, the less they care about communicating changes with end users.
silverfur64: Which of course does not work IRL.
TehAmelie: corollary, you need to do a bunch of stuff to learn to realistically calculate how much time it takes. that one thing you're putting off because you're thinking about all the steps it'll take to get done, go ahead and start doing that
HoloTheWiseWolf_: what did you do with the paper
jadedcynic: @TheMerricat oh - Google has done FAR worse than *just* "becoming anohter VALVe" - they're doing crap that Gabe wouldn't even think of...

Mysticman89: I made a slideshow in LaTeX back in university sincce I didnt like ppt
Laogeodritt: And web browsers manage to do kerning way better than MS PowerPoint. It amazes me just how absolutely *horrendous* PowerPoint's kerning is.
RealGamerCow: I should
Pteraspidomorphi: :D
TheMerricat: @jadedcynic agree, just mean by that that they are someone who just hangs around doing mediocre work now.
HoloTheWiseWolf_: use the best tool for your need not the one tool forever

dalefriesen: Netflix Canada doesn't have The Repair Shop. doesn't seem to know about it.

jadedcynic: S quality! lrrAWESOME
Sarah_Serinde: If it's not a super S what's even the point
Pteraspidomorphi: If you go back to main menu does it become level R2?
Juliamon: Rival!!
chickenace11: i do like how the game places small arrows on the green lane to show you
ToastyLoaff: needs to be that S we drew as kids in elementary
TheMerricat: @dalefriesen does this link work?
MaladyDark: I think there was a power point platformer made recently. a alternative game engine jam, inspired by those excel games
HoloTheWiseWolf_: its why chiefs have many different knifes when you could get by with one if you try hard enough
dalefriesen: @TheMerricat It just says not available in Canada
chickenace11: go to two player mode Ian drives Heather shoots Kappa
TheMerricat: crud. sorry.

jadedcynic: Yay for Region Locking. (and related licencing limitations) . lrrFRUMP
DarkMorford: Programming is kind of the same way. I'm pretty good with Python, C++, C#, and a couple other languages. Yes, I could do just about everything I need in only one language, but some are better at certain tasks than others.
MaladyDark: that's what Vpns are for.
MaladyDark: so I can watch all the countries
jadedcynic: yeah, VPNs are not "secure" :P
Anubis169: DarkMorford: Seconded
TheMerricat: NordVPN was pushing that line hard till it came out they had gotten hacked a year ago and didn't notice till recently.
Pteraspidomorphi: That lack of nuance is marketing by certain VPN providers of dubious integrity
TehAmelie: VPNs are expensive too. i used up a free trial one just changing my l.ocation to watch a couple of ads in a browser game
TehAmelie: weird typo there
jadedcynic: if you REALLY want to keep something from being accessed by people, just keep it only on an air-gapped device (or just keep it as a hard copy and erase it off your devices :P )
Mysticman89: I think PIA also had some hiccups? Or were acquired by someone who had a history? Not sure what the best (ideally free )vpn source is these days
Laogeodritt: There are some advantages to anonymising VPNs, being that your IP address and your destination aren't exposed to remote servers or men-in-the-middle and that it also tunnels your DNS requests, if these are data leaks that matter to you
Pteraspidomorphi: I just run my own
Pteraspidomorphi: Mysticman89: You are correct
Gizmoloid: I think they advertise like that because VPN companies are a bit leery of advertising themselves by saying "Use our product to get stuff the companies or your government don't want you to have"
GDwarf: DNSSEC finally becoming a thing removes most benefits of a VPN for home users
TheMerricat: that and dns via http
Laogeodritt: is DNSSEC finally seeing wider deployment? It was a "thing we should do" that never happened for so long that I stopped paying attention.
jadedcynic: the 'magic cure-all' ploy
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun to be honest a lot of VPNs still make their money on torrent folk hiding from their ISPs
Laogeodritt: Yeah, the marketing for VPNs is... horrendously exaggerated. It's infuriating to hear respectable educational YouTube channels reciting their marketing talk because of that.
jadedcynic: EXACTLY IAN
Pteraspidomorphi: Laogeodritt: Are your own zones signed?
DarkMorford: I've actually run into blocked videos sometimes even when I use a VPN. I tried to geo-hop to Japan once to watch a YouTube video, but I still wasn't able to get it to load. I think it's because I was using one of the bigger VPN services, so YouTube knew what the Tokyo endpoint was and blocked me based on that IP.
Pteraspidomorphi: Youtube actually blocked you? Huh
jadedcynic: I never assume security or privacy....ever.
MaladyDark: unfortunately I am required to put all my personal data into the goverment web portal. things I do in order to get my pension
jadedcynic: on the plus side, I never feel lonely anymore ;)
BrowneePoints: Oh yea! Ian and Heather, you ever get a chance to listen to any of Hadestown?
GDwarf: "I'm upset with the world", the 2020 mood.
Mysticman89: I have yet to make a facebook account and don't plan to. Everyone told me it was social suicide
RealGamerCow: "you don't need a bank, put all your money in Facebook!" is their terrifying new strategy
Pteraspidomorphi: :D
GDwarf: AOL crashed and burned, but Facebook et al have managed to recreate the bad stuff from it
Pteraspidomorphi: Ah, Libra
MaladyDark: @DarkMorford Netflix sometimes throws me a please dont use a VPN when i am using one of the big ones.
jadedcynic: @Mysticman89 amen- I almost signed up early on, but I actually examined their buisness model and asked "qui bono?"
GDwarf: Facebook is now getting access to medical data. Which isn't creepy at all!
MaladyDark: I have a facebook. it gives my mother the illusion she talks to me.
GDwarf: That SuperMicro story is *so weird*
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I don't know if it's spread to your next of the woods but there is a new social site called nextdoor that only lets you talk to your 'neighbors'.... OMG talk about illuminati conspiracies
Awfrigate: which article are you referencing from the times? I don't read the Times so I'm out of the loop.
GDwarf: NextDoor is infamous for being full of very scared suburbanites freaking out because they saw someone they didn't recognize in the neighbourhood. :P
rybackgaming: *something something underground railroad facts*
Dog_of_Myth: But why?
IsThis___Art: yes, i'm familiar with those uncles and aunts
MaladyDark: yeah, a big health insurer here is advertising lower premiums to people who wear thier company provided fit-bits
Awfrigate: Next Door, find out how racist your neighborhood really is
TheMerricat: @GDwarf I didn't believe till I saw, but yeah
RealGamerCow: Oh right, Ian might not be aware that some insurance companies are giving out free activity watches, and all the data goes back to them so they can adjust insurance costs based on activity levels.
GDwarf: I lost a lot of respect for BBC news this year when they started going full transphobic.
Pteraspidomorphi: Do they attempt to geographically pinpoint you in any way
RealGamerCow: in the US
Dog_of_Myth: Sounds like Thanksgiving for half of my family. :/
MaladyDark: I wish the switch is more like the 3ds
TheMerricat: You can get an awesome activity track for $50, why would you trust your insurance company for a free one?
Traion: Heather are you telling me you aren't running a marathon every day with your DS in hand? Kappa
LDUrquhart: My insurance company is always surprised I dont want a cellular modem plugged in to my car
RealGamerCow: In the next 10 years, expect RFID rice-sized injectable devices that will be angled towards "personalized medicine" that be used to hone that awful practice to a razor fine point.
MaladyDark: I do believe in nintendo' health commitments
RealGamerCow: Sorry, my tinfoil hat is showing. lrrAWESOME lrrSPOOP
Robot_Bones: only when Beej is on
GDwarf: Everything's political, Ian
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun Ben and Adam can get a bit weird but you Heather and Beej are the only real sources of 'real talk'. :-P
Pteraspidomorphi: Rhythm Cafe gets the most unrelated conversation among the LRR streams I watch
chickenace11: I mean I have the theory that LRRBot is just a super fast Paul clone
RealGamerCow: Time for a bodega cat, I mean streaming office cat?
GDwarf: :P
jadedcynic: Ooo, Moonbase has mice?
Calaban161: Mouse freind is distracting
GDwarf: Fair enough
Stoffern: Did Ben's old roommates move into the moonbase?
Riandisa: Next AFK: Mouse Trap?
jadedcynic: everyone dies, too; you wanna discuss inevitable mortality right now? :P
RealGamerCow: Booo.
Sarah_Serinde: lrrWOW
Calaban161: You have Dande
DarkMorford: Serge and Ben would just straight-up die.
Robot_Bones: is the moon zoned for a Palace?
TheMerricat: Get a hairless cat.
MaladyDark: yeah. the political discourse here in AUS is making me angry, and I don't get angry much. A break is needed from time to time or the bad feels will eat me alive
Juliamon: Hairless cats have a lot of extra maintenance involved, plus they still have dander
jadedcynic: ♫I know an old lady who swallowed a fly...♫
MaladyDark: also, when I met you... kathleen had enough cat just on her jumper.
Traion: Also kill Ben and Serge
GDwarf: Free-range snek?
TheMerricat: So what you are saying is Beej is getting a cat, Heather? :-P
jadedcynic: Ben & Serge start telecommuting ;)
GDwarf: Every so often an owl comes running out, kicks something to death, then runs back into its hidey-hole
MaladyDark: is paul a no parent or a yes parent?

chickenace11: ask for forgiveness not permission
jadedcynic: Nah, it's James
GDwarf: Pun game stronk
Juliamon: I think we're missing a free and easy option of putting Hootie somewhere with maximum mouse visibility, as a scarecrow
Robot_Bones: Heather its better to ask forgiveness than for permission
jadedcynic: Heather you started lrrFRUMP
jadedcynic: "it's easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission"
jadedcynic: @Juliamon mice don't have terribly good distance vision - a stationary owl statue would just be something stationary.
jadedcynic: But even just having a cat come in a pee in a few strategic locations would be FAR more effective in scaring off the intruding mice
Juliamon: I would be shocked if they didn't have something that could rotate it back and forth
chaostreader: !quote 6128
LRRbot: Quote #6128: "I said some funny things in the past." —Ian [2019-06-16]
jadedcynic: mice might have some instinctual memory of owls as: "a dealdy blur that streaks towards you if you're dumb enough to get caught out in the open"
Juliamon: It may be less effective than cat pee, but have YOU tried to get a cat to pee in a specific place?
Juliamon: I had a cat get sent home from the vet because they couldn't get a urine sample, rather than use the box provided he backed up against the cage door and pissed out into the room
TheMerricat: lol
jadedcynic: yeah, case in point; you don't MAKE a cat do ANYTHING; you *might* be able to suggest that it try <thing>, but be patient and don't hold your breath (or expectations)
Laogeodritt: @jadedcynic I'm reminded of the Magus Sisters summon in FFX.
Lucaan: Owls eogNani

kusinohki: I'm expecting a "then they all died" twist ending...
Sarah_Serinde: Good luck, Heather
MaladyDark: I have to say I laughed out loud. a lot. at the reveal of Ian in that HUGE rental
Mysticman89: I hope you didn't all die in a tragic accident.
jadedcynic: Oh! Ian, forgot I have the opportunity to do so: THANK you for re-enacting "The Duel" in that arrival with the rental P/U! LUL
Dog_of_Myth: !findquote time
LRRbot: Quote #4013: "My mom spent a lot of time hidden behind a drawn curtain" —Ian [2017-02-13]
Juliamon: I still can't believe it was a 350 of all trucks.
jadedcynic: TV movie from way back
tezzerettinkerer: Hi LRR!
Stoffern: Isnt The Duel that old Lucas movie with the truck?
jadedcynic: Spielberg directed
GDwarf: "The Duel" is an early...Spielberg? movie about someone in a car being chased by someone in a truck
Stoffern: Oh Spielberg
jadedcynic: @GDwarf EXACTLY :D
GDwarf: Basically, road rage where you can't see the person raging
Dog_of_Myth: Trucks are fun.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun for later viewing to get the joke -
GDwarf: Just the poor sap in a car trying to survive as someone tries to kill them for no reason
CamelAttack: Why does the Ford 350 as the largest vehicle not simply eat the others?
Dog_of_Myth: My ride is the Canyonero.
jadedcynic: @GDwarf at one point, he manages to sneak into what is apparently 'The Truck Driver's' garage and finds a LOT of damaged license plates - implying the Truck Driver makes this 'hunting down someone who trivally wrongs him' a recurring activity
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun luckily it's an awesome show.
jadedcynic: Also, that movie kinda documented a REALLY early instance of road-rage
TehAmelie: if only by accident. it's supposed to paint the truck itself as the antagonist
jadedcynic: @GDwarf also it wasn't 'no reason' - our salarayman shlep cut The Truck off (minor, forgettable thing) and then the hunt begins...
TehAmelie: Duel is a fine concept movie. i wanna rewatch it now
jadedcynic: but yeah, if you haven't see this, you should try to hunt it down, it's as TehAmelie said, a fantastic concept film
TehAmelie: a an called Man fights a truck with a driver who's only faintly suggested to be a person
TheMerricat: Too bad it still costs $15 to buy it.
TehAmelie: a man called Man.
TehAmelie: or possibly Mann
TheMerricat: Heather was the secret 4th driver. :-P
jadedcynic: @TehAmelie according to IMDb, "David Mann" :)
TehAmelie: naturally
Mr_Dirty: but those beans!
Driosenth: one of my first jobs was a literal bean counter
TheMerricat: All I can think of now is Heather hiding pills in the food in LRR and covering folk in blankets.
Fruan: They said EVERY law.
jadedcynic: O_O
jadedcynic: #IanNO
Mr_Dirty: So next love doctors will be Cats themed huh?
TheMerricat: jellico?
Dog_of_Myth: Get that sweet sweet Jellico in you.
Juliamon: (it's actually a huge pain trying to find a cat vein, I've had cats where it took the vets several attempts to draw a blood sample)
TheMerricat: @Mr_Dirty did you see the last Loading Ready Live?
Juliamon: (on the other hand, giving them subdermal injections is SO easy)
Mr_Dirty: @TheMerricat yes and I need more
jadedcynic: HAH! IMDb lists Carey Loftin as "The Truck Driver" (Loftin is a prominent stunt driver) - and his profile page? Has THE DAMN TRUCK FOR HIS PROFILE PICTURE radBliss *chef-kiss*

Dog_of_Myth: So year of the Skaven then?

RaklarLS: it's not like you can have a discussion on twitter, why even state your opinion after someone has stated theirs.
TehAmelie: i had someone tell me i was wrong to like the last Ghostbusters movie because it didn't make a lot of money (according to a figure he just made up)
TehAmelie: in 2019
TehAmelie: for 30 minutes
EightBitDreams: "If your likes don't match mine, you are obviously wrong"
IsaTheEngie: Wanting to like a thing is my experience with FFXIV in a nutshell
Dog_of_Myth: Some people just do that to start an argument.
EightBitDreams: That happened to me with A Song of Ice and Fire. It took until the TV series for me to finally get into it, after several false starts reading the first book
MaladyDark: I love firefly. I don't think it deserves all the hype.
Juliamon: I tried SO HARD to like Star Wars because I had a friend who loved it. Fortunately nowadays it's becoming easier to dislike without being told you're Wrong.
TehAmelie: Star Wars fans seem to be actually consuming themselves over if episode 9 is good or bad
Dog_of_Myth: Now I want to watch that movie again.....
RaklarLS: i guess it could also be seen as a lazy way to try and force an interaction with someone they like? doesn't matter there's no agreement, you noticed them
TheMerricat: If I'm being honest I love Castle of Cagliostro but the middle part did run a bit long.
MaladyDark: oh god. disney just smoothing away all the details in the older animated movies
GDwarf: My first Lupin was Cowboy Bebop :P

Mox_Hagdorm: Are you talking about 4K77, Ian?
BrowneePoints: Did you hear about the X-Men Cartoon on Disney + Ian?
MaladyDark: ooh that sounds great.
MaladyDark: but I prefer british old movies
MaladyDark: I saw the first movie of the new trilogy. i saw the first 2 prequels. I have seen the OG trilogy enough times that I know it well, but not so much that I hate it
MaladyDark: starwars just doesn't ... grab me? I dunno. they are fine action-adventure films.
RaklarLS: I think I prefer I jedi outcast/academy games to the actual movies. Those games have actual space wizards, doing impossible wizardry things
Mox_Hagdorm: Dewbacks.
SoldieroFortune: matte painting?
TheMerricat: I think I dropped out of being a superfan of either Star Wars and Star Trek around the time I got ahold of Netflix and started finding out how many more sci-fi space based series were out there that deserved more attention. RIP Farscape.
MaladyDark: I have a friend who hates pride and predjudice with a passion. thier mother watched the 5 hour BBC miniseries everyday for like a year... not even sexy colin firth moves her heart
Juliamon: I'm just not big on Space Fighty Adventure with a Hefty Side of Politics media. Just not my jam.
BrowneePoints: The Krayt Dragon Skeleton? or the Dewback Lizards?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ehh, with the Peacekeeper Wars, I think Farscape came to a proper conclusion
TheMerricat: Review Starlight, that was the magical girls who put on musicals at night?
Laserbeaks_Fury: I do, Daniel was Arcees, head AIR
Mox_Hagdorm: Also, this game is INSANE.
TheMerricat: As Beej says, it's OK to like something I don't like. :-P
RaklarLS: i'm definitely curious to at least watch a bit of it
niccus: the hard part about hating something is that you have to somehow watch it in the first place
DarkMorford: Revue Starlight didn't hook me as hard as Love Live or Bang Dream, but it was a fun show.
Despoiler98: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Road Quest Q&A (You’ve watched Road Quest for the past 12 weeks and I’m sure you have some questions. Well we’re here to answer as many as we can!) at Mon 05:00 PM PST (23:06 from now).
DarkMorford: Not a rhythm game, no. But I'm not sure how to categorize it either.
GDwarf: I think the anime and game were made at the same time, neither based on each other?
Laogeodritt: So how are we doing in the game, anyway? I've been listening to discussion and totally forgot we were even playing a game. =X
Mysticman89: is *this* a rhytm game, or just a twitchy reflex barrier dodging game?
GDwarf: Or rather, both based on each other?
TheMerricat: I think the last anime I ever hated was the Master of Ragnarok anime. Luckily I enjoyed hate watching it.
MaladyDark: Audiosurk nija
TheMerricat: I heard you.
TheMerricat: it even
RaklarLS: the game should show median/average timings too
Sarah_Serinde: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
DarkMorford: I think the Revue Starlight game is a spinoff/expansion of the anime, set after the show finishes. It's kind of an adventure RPG, no rhythm elements that I know of.
Sarah_Serinde: !RQ&A
LRRbot: There will be a Q&A livestream after the Road Quest finale on Jan 6! If you have any questions you want addressed, add them here:
RaklarLS: this versus lo-fi ping-pong from the other day is definitely a change of pace.
Mox_Hagdorm: Is this made by the same people that made Super Hexagon? This game reminds me a lot of it.

RaklarLS: games done quick is going on right now btw
Juliamon: Ah, yeah, AGDQ started today
Juliamon: So if Barrier X wasn't enough speed for you, there's that
Earthenone: barrier X was too much speed for me, and i only saw the last 15 min or so of it :P
TehAmelie: i keep trying to keep up with GDQ but i quickly lose interest when they're in between games, when the people on the camera aren't as funny as some canadians around here, or when they're doing games i don't care about. . .
Juliamon: GDQ very much is one of those things where you don't just sit there and watch the whole thing like Desert Bus is. You tune in for games you like, or games that you just want to know HOW they managed to get those times, or races.
TehAmelie: yeah. i have to practice keeping track of when that happens
Juliamon: I just keep the schedule open in a tab while it's running.
TehAmelie: hmm that sounds good
Juliamon: Just make sure to refresh it occasionally since it adjusts based on actual run times
TehAmelie: thanks <3
Juliamon: In "It Doesn't Hurt to Ask" news, I found some really cute made-to-order handcast jewelry but the earrings looked like they were on standard-sized findings so I sent a message asking if they might be able to find thicker gauge ones. Turns out the crafter had stretched piercings in the past and had been meaning to look for options for similar folks, she really appreciated my bringing it back to her attention/giving her an excuse to do it!
TehAmelie: yay!
