atrociouslyambisinister: @juliamon makes sense. thanks!
Thoth7: bladed is *usually* agility
Dovakey: oh nice
Thoth7: with all the scenarios across all the expansions, the difficulty spread is broader
Thoth7: this one scenario is Very hard
Dovakey: goodnight peeps
Juliamon: !ppr
LRRbot: The Theros Beyond Death Pre-Prerelease will be held on 10 January 2020! For more information, see this handy graphic:
DiscordianTokkan: PPR, wooo
Dezinkled: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
Thoth7: Scenario 3 from the base game is a bit easier, but so is this one now that you have an idea of how it works
Ganjinn: Magical folk
atrociouslyambisinister: The pupper!
AnDagda: well, that was fun
HesGotNoPants: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 25:22.
TacitusVigil: [Takes off Wizard hat and shuffles away sadly to Peanuts music]
atrociouslyambisinister: What a suspicious thing to say Ben lrrBEEJ
Agl0vale: Crim is Oko
jetpixi: Oh damn
chesul: it'll be 11pm somewhere.
EJGRgunner: Anyone want to take a bet on how long James will be waiting at the restaurant THIS time?
lirazel64: Let's invoke the Old Ones to prevent audio issues during the PPR.
DiscordianTokkan: Since I've been paranoid about using my Unstable basics for prereleases, I'm picking up a set of the new Sky Basics also, because... Reasons
jetpixi: I am far too late
damn_i_am_pretty: Good sports! Nothing like losing a horror game to get you ready for Ashiok
A_Dub888: dakadaka
DiscordianTokkan: I like the idea of the Hands popping up and waving faces at the table
Rhynerd: Automatic Slap gun
Lysander_Gustav: hahahaha
Juliamon: I like that one because the timing is easier to predict
Aarek: whamjangled
TacitusVigil: Ian just slapped his desk at home and he doesn't know why.
pharniel: Whamjangled. how can you not love that boi
Juliamon: TacitusVigil (In the other office)
Agl0vale: whamjangled?
Thoth7: "wham-jangled" is definitely something I am going to have to add to my vocabulary
thecanerdian: oh jeez did I just miss the whole thing
SnackPak_: lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrGOAT
erloas: so only 10 hours left
TacitusVigil: * Ian just slapped his desk in the other room and he doesn't know why.
Juliamon: He's almost definitely going to finish tonight
ritchards: so only another 50 hours to go
TacitusVigil: @Juliamon :D
jetpixi: @tacitusvigil 🤣
Rhynerd: Does he have the snake juice?
Dog_of_Myth: Got to fork for snake juice
Juliamon: He has lots of snake juice, he's ready
Sarah_Serinde: I will have to sleep through it and catch the vod :(
AHayes31: chances of revising the original Nightmare on AFK?
TacitusVigil: @Juliamon *Snake Joose
Despoiler98: I demand moar Lego streams :D
RvLeshrac: The end of Shenmue 3 is a good time to finish my gunpla I think.
jetpixi: Ooo Nightmare :)
pharniel: I've got some fridge magements that are from when we dissected some old 5.25" HDDs
TacitusVigil: Did Ian get himself assimilated....again...(sigh)
pharniel: platter HDDs are awesome
RvLeshrac: Noooo
Chillie: nooo =(
Sarah_Serinde: Aww
lirazel64: Juice of Snake and steamed buns!
Nigouki: so the show is safe until 2022
chesul: aww, that's super sad.

Dog_of_Myth: Dale!

pharniel: [raptor squeal]
NimrodXIV: Tell Dales
Izhuark: Dale ?
DiscordianTokkan: !advice
LRRbot: When you're walling somebody in, make sure you're standing on the right side of the wall.
GoblinRanger: Several dales
Thoth7: multiple Dales!
Sarah_Serinde: #BlameJames
kerbalized_: Dale????!!!!
TacitusVigil: Dangit James
mahpete_: looks like I just missed the stream. see ya on the vod!
kerbalized_: yaaaaaaassss
ninja_theory_ashrams: sending Support for whatever you do, Adam
Rhynerd: Tell Dales
Sarah_Serinde: Copy editor you say? Oh hi :P
AranMathai: Adam is not going away, correct?
Lysander_Gustav: neat
lirazel64: DALE!
Izhuark: Cool !
pharniel: [excitement intesifies]
Juliamon: mahpete_ There are multiple vods due to restarting, jsyk!
RvLeshrac: James was busy fighting Adam and Ben last night to copedit.
Gekyouryuu: wait, what about Adam's show now?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: ooh, exciting
Thoth7: "Tell Dale"... "Now tell the other Dale"... now those other two Dales"...
TheMerricat: So hyped.
lirazel64: Oooo!
Calaban161: Paranoia was fun
pharniel: @Gekyouryuu Adam says Adam's Gamhaus is endeing
damn_i_am_pretty: All Three Dales?!
Gekyouryuu: ah
TacitusVigil: A Tale of Two Dales. It was the Best of Dales, and it was the Worst of Dales.
TacitusVigil: Or is it a Dale of Two Cities?
mahpete_: @Juliamon worst case I can wait for the youtube version.
Lysander_Gustav: :D
lirazel64: Is this based on On The Edge?!?
DiscordianTokkan: Sergecraft 2!
pharniel: OTE is a trip and a half. Perfect for LRR
r10pez10: human noise
GoblinRanger: sergeSqueak
RvLeshrac: TacitusVigil: What's the worst of Dales?
Rhynerd: Adamandthencori
Evochron13: sergeSqueak
Gekyouryuu: that's a bummer, but it's his decision to make
Juliamon: mahpete_ That MAY be a good idea. The restart was due to severe audio glitching.
DiscordianTokkan: Tine o'Clock! lol
RvLeshrac: Jameses, Uno, and Serge
pharniel: I'd love to see them try some of Jenna Moran's (Chuubu's, Nobilis, Glitch) but that might be asking too much
TacitusVigil: @RvLeshrac When you roll poorly and he starts laughing and you realize "...oh no..."
Sarah_Serinde: Ooh a Paul!
Foxmar320: Oh neat!
r10pez10: ben
Thoth7: Ah, Mine o'clock - an endless source of clips of James falling down holes of his own creation
Rhynerd: The Manhole?
DiscordianTokkan: Heh heh heh
Decaped: This manhole is for children!
SnackPak_: neat
Lysander_Gustav: Neat
ninja_theory_ashrams: all hail the gigaloo
Thoth7: yeah, Manhole
TacitusVigil: Head and shoulders above Myst?
Juliamon: hur hur hur
lirazel64: Ooo!
Rhynerd: Oh, that’ll be interesting
jetpixi: WHAT
TehAmelie: head and shoulders above Deuce Bigelow, Male Gigolo
jetpixi: CYAN?!
Rhynerd: No puzzles?
TheMerricat: Describing The Manhole as "the first children's software to require a hard disk", Macworld in March 1989 stated that its "realistic sounds, the fantasy-filled graphics, and the stack construction are truly impressive".
RvLeshrac: Most of the Humongous Entertainment games are also pretty Walking Sim.
jetpixi: Oooooo
TacitusVigil: @TehAmelie That's...just everything.
Foxmar320: Its so bad
spiffinn: oh i just here
erloas: you'll finish the game when you get to the end
RvLeshrac: Ben and Adam are basically doing a second Watch+Play at this point
spiffinn: *got
Rhynerd: They’re heading back to the hospital.... and then they’ll be there.
Sarah_Serinde: :D
Lysander_Gustav: And then the game truly begins
Calaban161: At least you now have another clip for your Handgun Ben
Juliamon: Herbus
JacquesEB: crap, I just lost the game
TheMerricat: BTW folks - in case you want to play along with Paul and Cam. :-)
Foxmar320: The fun is riffing on the game :P
DiscordianTokkan: wheelerHub
TehAmelie: the word is now "houbris"
frozenphoenix7: It's all about the game, and how you play it?
IncredibleFrown: so what you're saying is you'll be high for it
Thoth7: it's okay, Ben - you can have fun *at* the game
xantos69: cheer50 Bits!

TacitusVigil: @RvLeshrac He still hasn't told Ben, Paul is letting him tucker himself out.
TehAmelie: hmm, now should i watch Ian or play Starsector?
RvLeshrac: Oh shit did I miss the Awful Games Block?
TheMerricat: Why not both? :-)
RvLeshrac: Not W+P, I mean GDQ
SnivianMoon: Will Ryo get his revenge? Will we solve the mystery of the Chobu? Will the elusive 9-item forklift delivery be achieved?? It's time to find out, on the exciting conclusions of Shenmue III!
TehAmelie: it could be doable
PharaohBender27: (speaking in 1940s radio announcer voice) Will Ryo finally defeat the leader of the Red Snakes? Will he rescue Shenhua's father? Find out in the next thrilling episode of Shenmue 3!
TheMerricat: The ulimtate computer setup, LRR twitch one monitor, walkthroughs for the games on the second monitor, and a game on the third. :-P
TehAmelie: hmm, the starup menu for this game has an option to turn sound on. that seems promising for multitasking
SnivianMoon: Stay tuned for partial excitement!
r10pez10: scissors!
Seagulyus: you know SnivianMoon I think was closer. though, keep it to forklifts that is why I care about shenmue
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat I . . . OK my brain's melting just trying to imagine that
Pal_Friendpatine: @pharaohbender27 I want to get a filter so I can talk like one of the old newsreel announcers
TheMerricat: @r10pez10 no.... lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR lrrCREEPR SISSORS! lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR

PharaohBender27: SingsNote He triiiiiied to kill him with a forklift . . . SingsNote
jkoon78076: hey Ian, guess what? you're awesome
PharaohBender27: Also, internet plz
r10pez10: frontname
SnivianMoon: @PharaohBender27 Ole!
Dog_of_Myth: A wild Ian appears
feddy5hnight: hi
PharaohBender27: @SnivianMoon :D I actually do that in my mind whenever I think of that line
TheMerricat: ? They are just NOW asking you to sign a EULA?
blip2004: typing on mobile is very hard
CamelAttack: You're signing away youre rights to a lawsuit because for some reason arbitration is legal.
Pal_Friendpatine: @themerricat maybe you have to agree to the EULA to finish the game wattsLOL wattsLOL
SnivianMoon: Oh right, we no-scoped the Gem set at the end of the last session!
SnivianMoon: Oh no. Oh NO.
PharaohBender27: @SnivianMoon Just the "Ole!" was only once, so I worried doing it would just confuse even people who generally got the reference
Pal_Friendpatine: I don’t know if the save was confirmed
TacitusVigil: If only we had a video to refer to...
TacitusVigil: Kappa
SnivianMoon: @PharaohBender27 I've been thinking of that reference ever since we got into the forklift on this playthrough, and afraid it'd be obscure myself.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: i 100% would have sworn up and down that you saved on stream
RvLeshrac: The real question is, do you reload?
SnivianMoon: Oh sure, rub it in game.
Pal_Friendpatine: @snivianmoon @pharaohbender27 I’ve been thinking of that reference for weeks now.
jkoon78076: 2 more
dangerous_safety: Side!
asddsa28: in 7
Agl0vale: do you think you'll play this game again on your own time and not on play it forward?
PharaohBender27: @SnivianMoon It's funny how much crossover there is of fanbases, or at least references
dangerous_safety: at least its fastish
RvLeshrac: At the start of the game you have to restart six times, then walk in a counter-clockwise circle sixteen times while staring directly up to get the seed set right, Ian.
Pal_Friendpatine: Empty all your money, save, then find out what happens if you can’t pay the hotel manager
PharaohBender27 gets angry at his internet before he refreshes because he's like a minute behind at this point
HesGotNoPants: ie ian is done looking at this
CapnRobert: so if you dont get it from spending all your money gonna reload?
CapnRobert: it seems fair
DrWreckage: I think you're allowed to Save Scum
PharaohBender27: They're . . . rectangular gems?
dangerous_safety: gonna have a lot of partial sets to cash in on at least
SnivianMoon: HUZZAH!
PharaohBender27: lrrGOAT !
Alephred: Save!
r10pez10: save?
MousseFilledCat: Save?
PharaohBender27: SAVE
Pal_Friendpatine: @pharaohbender27 they are just cut rectangular
HesGotNoPants: I hope the final boss requires 6000 gold
TheAinMAP: lrrIAN lrrPAUL
Agl0vale: hi Paul benginHi
JohnLockeCole: the gatcha could be anything, it could even be a boat
Kramburger: The spirit of this game is akwardly voiced social interactions
dangerous_safety: gonna need a bigger boat
ElementalAlchemist: Hello friends
ElementalAlchemist: I have made it
Kumakaori: with out last cash, we got the fishing rod >D.
PharaohBender27: @Pal_Friendpatine I mean, yeah. I just meant that their shape seemed to be the only thing notable about them. Heck, they could be *molded* in that shape - even in a game, you really think they stock Gatcha-machines with valuable stones? Or even nice glass?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: OH NO
Pal_Friendpatine: @pharaohbender27 ah I get ya. Good point
SydPreviouslyHeadache: well. thank you TheMerricat
DiscordianTokkan: Goodnight Paul!
DarkMorford: Don't tell ME ya don't have any cash!
Pal_Friendpatine: What is the black thing on Ian’s right? Green screen shenanigans?
Juliamon: Looks like a chair arm
PharaohBender27: Speaking of the "suspension of disbelief in-game" - gatcha (sp?) machines in 1987 mainland China? I don't think so
TheMerricat: @Pal_Friendpatine chair rarm
r10pez10: !chair
SnivianMoon: Ian, out of curiosity, do you have any recommendation for someone who enjoys the Shenmue series as to where to begin with the Yakuza series? I admit I'm curious, but the franchise seems quite daunting.
PharaohBender27: OH NO
r10pez10: minigame'd
ElementalAlchemist: oh
ElementalAlchemist: you, uh, have a tab
Pal_Friendpatine: wattsLOL
ElementalAlchemist: Sure, let's start, even though we can get more efficient money forklifting
r10pez10: the classic counting from 0
Tiber727: What happens if you fail at chopping wood?
Erudite_Cynic: 0 is WAY better than Kiwami
PharaohBender27: How much wood do you have to chop?
SnivianMoon: That sounds like a great one to pick up. Thank you much for the recommendation!
Unpronounceable: Heather Alexandra, from Kotaku, also recommends starting with Zero
blip2004: damn I missed what happened with the landlady
SnivianMoon: Oooh, sounds like some VODs to check out.
Erudite_Cynic: Judgement is best Karaoke song hands down
PharaohBender27: :D
Erudite_Cynic: fite me
HesGotNoPants: this will do thank you hubris pixies
Juliamon: blip2004 she teleported us to the wood-chopping minigame
lirazel64: Are you going to chop for the old lady?
JohnPraw: Good evening, Ian. Great job to you and the rest of the team on Road Quest! Very well done.
DiscordianTokkan: @blip2004 Wood chopping for debt
JohnLockeCole: I dunno Erudite_Cynic .... cause we know, life is like a diamond
korvys: This man isn't as enthusiastic as that woman from the last place
jetpixi: Good evening. Seems we are chopping wood.
Agl0vale: ive become interested in this series after watching you play it, would you suggest playing 1 & 2 first or can I skip to this one?
jetpixi: Or else what
SydPreviouslyHeadache: huh
PharaohBender27: That's what I asked!
r10pez10: pay in gatchapon prizes
SnivianMoon: Woah, wait, I thought it was 23 yuan a night?
tergonis: tell me she shows up after the finally and just wails on us
PharaohBender27: Time to lift some forks!
Juliamon: Maybe interest due to not having it when she wanted it?

StringCheeseRiot: so glad to hear you had fun
DiscordianTokkan: Good ol' mummified toe shots
StringCheeseRiot: oh god!
jetpixi: lol oh no
Nigouki: so is kissing the toe the closest any of you got to drinking that tomb juice?
SnivianMoon: Road Quest was a heck of a good series. Bravo to you all for putting it together.
TehAmelie: i wonder how much is tissue and how much is whiskey residue at this point
PharaohBender27: Can't say I'd want to "kiss the toe," but RQ makes me want to visit northwestern Canada
StringCheeseRiot: I'll need to come visit you guys up there so damn beautiful!
lirazel64: You're probably going to have to pay for another night...
Comeback323: so, what is this game about?
TehAmelie: you can buy firewood?
TehAmelie: one career option this game seems to be missing is arbitrage
StringCheeseRiot: you
Comeback323: so....its a game about dicking around?
SnivianMoon: Ryo: Hello. Old Lady: Guess I'll die. Ryo: I see...
StringCheeseRiot: you will die first
Nigouki: i'm kinda jelly of west coast geology, Ontario is just super flat
jetpixi: He's a great conversationalist huh?
Comeback323: I'm confused lol
StringCheeseRiot: ok horner concentrate
TheMerricat: so apparently there used to be two toes they used but an a-hole intentionally swallowed one of them and paid the fine in the early 2000's.
PharaohBender27: @Comeback323 Theoretically, a teenager avenging his father's death. Really, what Ian said
Dog_of_Myth: Looking forward to chopping wood in VR
TehAmelie: it's a revenge simulator like Skyrim is a dragon fighting game
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie lrrWOW but also :D
Pal_Friendpatine: Why is she saying whoops?
TheDarium: So, the firewood industry is dying in a town that has two separate woodchoppers?
Juliamon: It's kinda like Stardew, but if Joja murdered your grandfather and you didn't have to actually farm
Dog_of_Myth:'re supposed to fight dragons in Skyrim?

jetpixi: @Juliamon lol
Pal_Friendpatine: Are her audio lines bugged?
Tiber727: It still confuses me that, it's a miracle that he even got to make a Shenmue 3. How much does the story actually progress in this? Shouldn't he have sped it up a bit?
Agl0vale: old fire wood lady for smash
Comeback323: so is this the most recent game?
SnivianMoon: Big money? Big prizes! I Love It!
StringCheeseRiot: have you ever chopped 100 logs?
Comeback323: so the game is mostly side quests and very little the main plot?
ElementalAlchemist: Shenmue is all about going as slowly as possible
TacitusVigil: Shenmue is about the journey. And the minigames. And the forklift racing.
StringCheeseRiot: sell some blood
RvLeshrac: Well, we thought we knew what we were getting in for when some of us dropped $200 in the pot.
SnivianMoon: Shenmue III is very much a game for people who want more Shenmue III. And it really has an almost brazen and refreshing disregard for modern gaming sensibilities.
RvLeshrac: But then Things Happened.
Nigouki: you can have a very fulfilling day until your cat tells you to go to sleep? Kappa
Comeback323: Ah so it's a hobby simulator
asddsa28: it reminds me of harvest moon whitout a farm
Comeback323: cool haha
TacitusVigil: You knew what you were getting* (Just, apparnetly, not on Steam)
korvys: Look for Chobu
GoblinRanger: Chop wood fish?
r10pez10: you can even play face off
StringCheeseRiot: CHOP WOOD FISH
jetpixi: just like life
RvLeshrac: TacitusVigil: Pretty much.
jetpixi: where is stuff?!
PharaohBender27: Yeah, but how likely is it there will be a full 8(?) games, really? #HarshButNecessaryQuestions
RvLeshrac: I really wanted my capsule forklift, too.
A_Dub888: Not to be confused with Face/Off
RvLeshrac: But oh well.
HesGotNoPants: because in real life I'm going to try to avenge my father's murder
Comeback323: his mouth is so big
StringCheeseRiot: Jesus his mouth is huge!
azureHaights: You won't find better rates, or a more cleft chin!
ElementalAlchemist: But you can't play Roll It On Top with the Roll It On Top guy with a great voice from Shenmue II
TheMerricat: Shenmue XXI, A 50 year old Ryu finally finds his father's murderer.... he's a 90 year old in a nursing home. Eventually Ryu just decides to invest in a Gachapon business and becomes a millionare.
SnivianMoon: I think you'll have to use the "Sell" option to get the cash, not the "exchange" option.
Comeback323: I wouldn't expect this game to have combat
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat :D
Comeback323: yet it clearly does
SnivianMoon: I made that mistake more than once myself!
SnivianMoon: Holla holla get yuan
SniperPumpkin: this game does need a serious UX overhaul
Tiber727: That seems a bit of a false dilemma though. You can have all the minigames and day-to-day life stuff. But maybe, instead of getting revenge taking 5 more games and 100 steps, they can cut 10 or 20 steps.
Comeback323: so can this game be beat?
korvys: Oh, is Shen Hue still kidnapped?
TehAmelie: what happens to the NPCs when Ryo finishes the game, leaves town and leaves their lives without meaning?
SnivianMoon: They could also get different and better voice acting/directing. But somehow that wouldn't feel the same.
l0gin4me: Is there any time crunch in the game or can you do side quests for as long as you want?
Juliamon: Yeah, "kidnapped"
Juliamon: l0gin4me Apparently there is a date where you will game over
TheMerricat: @SnivianMoon they explicitly got the same VA's so that it'd be consistent quality. :-)
SniperPumpkin: I think the Voice Acting is exactly correct for the game this is trying to be, it's just the game interfaces that are needlessly obtuse
SnivianMoon: @TheMerricat That makes me strangely happy.
PharaohBender27: YES WE DO
Comeback323: why are all their mouths so big
SniperPumpkin: but do we have enough pound cake?
IncredibleFrown: shenmue 1 has that too right? like if you take two years, the trail goes cold
jetpixi: Better make it three then
Comeback323: so are we trying to kill a vampire?
jetpixi: Isn't Snake Juice the thing Tom "invents" in Parks and Rec and everyone gets wasted on it?
StringCheeseRiot: everyone has huge mouths! is this the competitive eatting capital of the world?
Juliamon: The literal opposite of fresh
TehAmelie: how anticlimactic would it be to give up the trail of vengeance to drive forklifts and play pachinko for the rest of your days
PharaohBender27: So I literally looked up "Snake Juice" because of this Play It Forward, and . . . learned about a bullshit diet trend
SnivianMoon: They did lovingly render just about this entire game.
r10pez10: you know, snake oil
Drakas: hello
TheDarium: @Comeback323 I think it was because this series started on the dreamcast, so stylized faces were better then realism. But it could just be a choice they made.
StringCheeseRiot: have a good night Ian!
StringCheeseRiot: always a pleasure!
TehAmelie: i'm reminded of the rationalist rewrite of Moby Dick. "'Revenge?' said the captain. 'On a fish? No, I decided to get on with my life instead.'"
r10pez10: boats are where sailors hang out
PharaohBender27: I just wanted to know what "Snake Juice" in this game was made of! i.e. if it actually involved snake venom
jkoon78076: Ian I hope you are having a wonderful evening
IncredibleFrown: oh did what's her name get pinched? i haven't been watching consistently
StringCheeseRiot: Cheer100 Chop wood fish!
SK__Ren: Yes, He's Piccolo and we're Krillin.
Juliamon: IncredibleFrown Shenhua was lured away under false pretenses
JohnLockeCole: Kung Fu Fire Extinguishers?!?
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie (pushes imaginary glasses up nose) Actually, whales are mammals
kusinohki: miya!
jetpixi: Must find Kitty
jetpixi: Main Quest now
Kramburger: Hey, what side do you think Shenuha is sleeping on in the castle?
Jorge4hg: Too far away, well guess we forklift for our rest of our days
kusinohki: what for? I need to cross the river... I just told you
SnivianMoon: @Kramburger FACE DOWN
DarkMorford: She's sitting and reading her book.
TehAmelie: Ahab is being dismissive
Kramburger: She's hanging off the roof like a bat
PharaohBender27: @Kramburger Either on her left side, or given this scenario, tied to a chair
Juliamon: "Those Red Snakes are too strong for you, traveler."
Dog_of_Myth: What do we name our boat, Ian?
Comeback323: could you learn new fight moves before?
JohnLockeCole: a Kung Fu Grand Master shure would be helpful dealing with the red snakes in the castle? y'know what I mean?
Drakas: would you call him you pier peer ian
dangerous_safety: more horse
asddsa28: ruster step might be better
SnivianMoon: More Horse Stancical?
TheMerricat: So vascular.
azureHaights: @Drakas His peerless pier peer
Kramburger: When I did Taekwondo, we called it Horseriding Stance, which is a lot clearer for kids (and adults like me who have taken one too many hits to the old head)
SnivianMoon: ooooooOOOOOH AH! . . . HA! HA!
Calaban161: Dont you have to tell your freind that you got the boat
TheMerricat: Did we just slam a couple of bulbs of garlic?
TehAmelie: such enthusiastic training. i bet their girlfriends let them stay out past nine
e_bloc: Corgo138 rooster riding step
korvys: @Kramburger Oh hey, I did Tawkwando as well!
ElementalAlchemist: Horse dance!
Kramburger: I mean, YOU can probably say
ElementalAlchemist: I certainly hafve
ElementalAlchemist: have
anamelessdog: Horse Pants?
r10pez10: !addquote (Ian) [Now] I love my kung-fu brethren.
LRRbot: New quote #6688: "I love my kung-fu brethren." —Ian [2020-01-08]
PharaohBender27: Wait, the post for rooster step looks an awful lot like the one for horse stance!
ElementalAlchemist: Horse Dance is way more exciting than Horse Stance
korvys: !findquote horse
LRRbot: Quote #4480: "Are we being strung along by a horse lothario?" —Kathleen [2017-11-10]
TehAmelie: Horse Prince, or whatever that game was called. . .what a legend
Drakas: ian you can horse dance if you want to, as long as you dont leave you friends behind
SnivianMoon: Once you master the Horse Dance, you can move up to the Bojack Boogie.
DarkMorford: More like one-foot punch, am I right?
JohnLockeCole: TehAmelie honestly I still just call it "Horse Boyfriend game"
Comeback323: do we already have all the skill books?
TehAmelie: works for all occasions
Electrodyne: Those guys in the background -- their kicks were fast as light'ning
Comeback323: do more skill books = better moves?
Electrodyne: in fact it was a little bit frightening
Drakas: we have enough of the skill books
Electrodyne: they fought with ex pert tiiimiiiing
SnivianMoon: @Electrodyne You have to admit, though. They have expert timing.
Kramburger: Have you ever punched something so hard that you made wood pahse through stone?\
Electrodyne: Yes!
PharaohBender27: One-inch - I mean, one-foot punch
CaptainSpam: Ah, so this is basically wood chopping but for kung-fu training?
Armyguy0: So how close to the end of "play it horner" are we?
CaptainSpam: The illusion of choice!
PharaohBender27: :D
r10pez10: shenmoo curfew
IncredibleFrown: you know, some number of the minigame jobs should give you kung fu move xp
DiscordianTokkan: seabatCHOICE
l0gin4me: sleep is important
SnivianMoon: Gosh dang bedtime. Ryo! Shenhau got kidnapped. You don't have a curfew!
TheMerricat: Ryu's a good boy, he always obeys the curfew.
Kramburger: seabatCHOICE seabatCHOICE seabatCHOICE
dangerous_safety: Calling it now, not there
JohnLockeCole: look at the time, I had better go see Shen.. Hu... huh, I feel like something is missing
PharaohBender27: Grab your apples!
korvys: If only they had free garlic
Armyguy0: "play it horner" is a fiting name for the Shenmue III set btw
CaptainSpam: I can't wait to see the no doubt very satisfying ending to all of this malarkey. Kappa
Juliamon: Jokes on you I already do
e_bloc: also check the insides for spiders too
azureHaights: I don't have to worry about applespiders. I don't eat apples. Kappa
Electrodyne: We're kung-frugal
TheMerricat: That's why I always peel bananas from the non-stem end. :-)
Comeback323: we sleep for 11 hours??
Kalpho: He goes to sleep and wakes up the same time everyday, why does he need an alarm?
TehAmelie: my favorite new word of the day
Kramburger: Spiders don't live in apples, they live under plastic outdoor furniture. Source: am Aussie
korvys: Gotta get that kung-fruit
kusinohki: may 6 1987... when did the game start?
DiscordianTokkan: I have a water glass from watching the Avengers, that I always check the straw for for spiders. I won't make THAT mistake a third time
Armyguy0: Thats what the K means in K-mart
SnivianMoon: Oh heck, it's gettin' cinematic in here.
SniperPumpkin: I'm excited to see the thrilling conclusion* of this story
Drakas: can i check the bottoms of my spiders for apples
r10pez10: this has some parallels to entering the space shuttle
Pal_Friendpatine: @themerricat it’s also easier!
Armyguy0: its were the kung-frugal shop
SnivianMoon: The drone shots in Road Quest were /buttery/ smooth.
IncredibleFrown: the gang's all here
DarkMorford: Road Quest had some epic drone shots
TehAmelie: she's a white mage!
JohnLockeCole: are these all our mates, like did we rally the troops?
CaptainSpam: "But I had a hard enough time finding a boat that could hold TWO people..."
SnackPak_: This is the 80's, they don't have drones yet lrrBEEJ
korvys: Are we Seven Samurai-ing this?
wynternyghtynggale: grandmaster bae
korvys: Well, five?
enki1256: That expression is.... interesting.
Comeback323: so this is the end boss?
azureHaights: @Electrodyne Your Kung-fru cannot compare to my Karasaifu: the Way of the Empty Billfold
Armyguy0: That guy looks like kung-fu joker
JohnLockeCole: korvys more Five Guys
CaptainSpam: I just noticed he's basically Waluigi with his mustache shaved off.
TehAmelie: it was a situational comedy, but with the comorant man along it's more of an epic
DarkMorford: An outboard motor? Really?
SnivianMoon: Don't forget the wine and buns!
Armyguy0: wait
PharaohBender27: For a second, I thought that was some sort of superweapon
SniperPumpkin: I was expecting a pole. The outboard is...incongruous
AranMathai: That man has an exceptionally muscular back.
Armyguy0: IS this Waluigis day job?
Calaban161: Fab Five.
SnivianMoon: "Me and Scoob will check out the kitchen"
Kramburger: Fun Fact: A Bug's Live is a licenced remake of Seven Samurai
TehAmelie: does she speak?
asddsa28: just kick in the watter XD
DarkMorford: She just doesn't have anything to say to Ren.
TehAmelie: guess she just didn't feel like it today
JohnLockeCole: Does she actually speak or does she do what this game thinks speaking is?
TheDarium: Prep for quicktime events?
Electrodyne: Fish jacket > celestial pony crop-top shirt.
korvys: Castle is on the hill behind, I assume?
Pal_Friendpatine: @kramburger wattsHM HahaBall . That’s wild. I just started rewatching that
azureHaights: Or whatever it's called
lirazel64: That ab shot, though...
PharaohBender27: I mean, maybe it was considered a castle at one time
Armyguy0: WELL
Comeback323: so why are they staying back there? what are we defending? are we afraid they will steal our boat?
Kramburger: Okay, so where is this castle hiding it's Chobu-chan?
IncredibleFrown: is this a unity game??
CaptainSpam: Except this is the Unreal engine, not Unity...
korvys: "One day, this stand will hold lamps, but first they need to be invented"
kusinohki: the stand is time appropriate, but not the lights. that's why the lights are removed. :P
Armyguy0: "like my Chobu-chans"
SnivianMoon: If Droopy Dog were in Shenmue, he'd be this guy.
IncredibleFrown: "they stole my time displaced halogen lamps"
Armyguy0: They took his Chobu-chan
Calaban161: They stole my Chobu
asddsa28: dont turst him
Armyguy0: now hes the only one with out it
korvys: "What did they steal?" "My Chobus"
kusinohki: "you're the only one I can ask! because you'r the first person I've seen in 10 years!"
SniperPumpkin: oh this game
erased_citizen: Damn red snakes
PharaohBender27: OK so who was it last stream who predicted that the castle would just be another locale with its own miniquests? Because they were 100% right, it seems
azureHaights: "Hello are you happy A-Train"
dangerous_safety: I dont think he can either
Kramburger: He sounds like DBZA version of Mr Satan
HesGotNoPants: that is texan
SniperPumpkin: there's a little bit of texas in there
DarkMorford: "Bye" the way...
Armyguy0: WAIT
Electrodyne: yes, suspicious because when "The Red Snakes daycare" opens we expect them to be good neighbors
asddsa28: he konws your going to die
Dog_of_Myth: That is texan
Agl0vale: "endgame"
Comeback323: "even my daughter"
Armyguy0: @LoadingReadyRun IF this is a shop it MOST likey has a Chobu
SnivianMoon: Ian, welcome to the final Shenmue III gift: Another bizarre item hunt!
TehAmelie: maybe you can take money with you to the next game
Calaban161: The good Shit is valubale
TheDarium: There is no safe place from capitalism...
kusinohki: is it any different from shops being outside the final boss dungeon/castle in an RPG game?
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun it actually looks as if they did make halogen lamps for construction work back in the 80's. So maybe not time displaced....
SnivianMoon: You have to do this.
ElementalAlchemist: But chobu!
ElementalAlchemist: We have to get the completionist points!
azureHaights: Large plate? We've got plenty of those back in Kamurocho! Need it in Silver or Gold?
Kramburger: I was *kidding*
Armyguy0: it does have a Chobu does it @Kramburger ?
SnivianMoon: I will admit: This ranks pretty high in the "This is kinda bullshit" scale of plot-gating quest tasks.
Kramburger: It actually has a Chobu
Electrodyne: I can't wait until the final boss, leader of the Red Snakes, is...Chobu.
Armyguy0: HA
Kramburger: I'm SO mad
Armyguy0: I KNEW IT
SnivianMoon: Oh Ian, take a closer look around.
TehAmelie: yoink achieved
IncredibleFrown: "i'll take this." *leaves china*
therisingtithes_: What's 'Smartball Technique'?
GoblinRanger: Art of this game? Kinda meta
Kramburger: Man, that Penny Arcade strip about Ryu doing everything *but* what he's supposed to rings more true than ever
PharaohBender27: They're good books, Bront
DiscordianTokkan: SP MANY PLATES
kusinohki: that plate almost looked like a crokinole board
enki1256: Perhaps a plate collection?
asddsa28: this is a trap
Dog_of_Myth: Greek wedding?
SnivianMoon: It's all plates. It's nothing but plates.
Pal_Friendpatine: that plate looked like a pizza
IncredibleFrown: now you have to guess which plate is mine!
korvys: "The art of shenmue"? So they just took a photo of a book in the developers office, huh?
Electrodyne: if you buy those college textbooks, your inventory value goes down to 10% of original value
kakmize: Not a single plate matches any of the others
Nigouki: what
RunningMonkeys: what
Dog_of_Myth: Normal people
LisasMoistClam: what a great game
Kramburger: "They've hidden my ruby ring in a gacha machine"
kusinohki: like a perfectly normal human
dangerous_safety: Ryo is practicing his claw machine style
jetpixi: I was away for a bit. It looks like you're drinking snake juice...
DiscordianTokkan: Pizza plate!
DarkMorford: YES
SnivianMoon: Pizza Plate Best Plate!
IncredibleFrown: that one's his
Armyguy0: pizza plate
Miijhal: yessss
Juliamon: Best plate
AranMathai: That plate would drive me insane.
SnivianMoon: We can't take the pizza plate?! THIS IS ANOTHER CHARCOAL SITUATION!
asddsa28: gpdXD
TehAmelie: i'm shocked this strip hasn't come up before now
PharaohBender27: "The pepperoni plate of legend!?"
Electrodyne: No ryo it's clearly a bootleg pizza plate
asddsa28: i want that to be a crapshot
Pal_Friendpatine: Wow and I thought the others looked like pizza wattsLOL
anamelessdog: are you stealing plates?
Pal_Friendpatine: Now he’s going to have a plate collection set
Kramburger: That strip is from the year 2000
Kramburger: IT'S 20 YEARS OLD
RunningMonkeys: when he picks up the plates the stand comes with them which seems wrong to me.
IncredibleFrown: i've found your plate, master bruce
dangerous_safety: I am Mysterious Creature Man
Miijhal: that's also how i feel about gacha games
Nigouki: Kramburger why must you lie like that, i remember the year 2000 being only a few years ago
korvys: How good is it going to be when Ian runs out of time to do this today :P
SnivianMoon: That camera took me like 45 minutes to find on my play through. I hate it.
Pal_Friendpatine: @runningmonkeys some stands have springs that make the stand clamp onto the plate, but yes I agree, it’s just weird
IncredibleFrown: is that camera actually retro by the 80s?
l0gin4me: that doesn't look retro for 1987
TehAmelie: what IS this? a room where they drop all the collectibles you missed?
Kramburger: @Nigouki The inevitable march of time is killing us all
Electrodyne: i think there was another pizza plate on the shelf above the camera
Kramburger: Okay I have several questions, but they all basically boil down to WHY?
IncredibleFrown: oh this is gonna have to load for every plate huh
Electrodyne: Added to wishlist
Armyguy0: I need this @TheMerricat
CaptainSpam: Batplate.
PharaohBender27: One dish to serve them all!
madrua: good ole plate-save move
Kramburger: The shop one the island that NOBODY GOES TO
TehAmelie: how many cubic meters of junk have we carried around in this game? or should it be measured in cubic kilometers?
TacitusVigil: [Beej hears that in the other room and hangs his head in sadness]
kusinohki: an eccentric millionaire wanted those 3 items and no substitutes...
JohnLockeCole: These three Items, that were all like 20 feet away from your shop's door, totally unattended?
SnivianMoon: I love how this guy is so worried about the reputation of his shop - His shop in the old castle. Where everyone in town said NO ONE EVER GOES.
JohnLockeCole: Saved your Shop
jkoon78076: what did he give you
IncredibleFrown: A Door Knob
AranMathai: Is this man actually a hoarder?
PharaohBender27: Wait, what did he give us? I was typing a snarky post :P
SniperPumpkin: that's OUR door knob
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 snake powder
SnivianMoon: Never know when you're gonna need to open a door.
Electrodyne: The doorknob isn't useful without a sock to put it in
CaptainSpam: So what happens if it becomes 9pm now? Does everyone just load up on the boat and head back to the mainland?
TehAmelie: i want us to be able to use the doorknob for fighting
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Oh wow that IS the best gift!
Kramburger: This shop I set up under a gang hideout keeps getting robbed, wht do?
TacitusVigil: [Starts cursing in Mandarin]
IncredibleFrown: we can put it on a wall and open it like a cartoon
DiscordianTokkan: !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: Initiate fluid cycling protocol.
DigitalSeahorse: ssandRAINBOW_SG kathle3PRISM ssandRAINBOW_TK
Dog_of_Myth: Wait, there's plot?
SnivianMoon: No scoped!
jetpixi: Don't let James control you
e_bloc: thats a real good one
Kramburger: Yes but WHY
TehAmelie: the head of the Buddha, the last place you'd look
dangerous_safety: !advice
LRRbot: Ian lies.
ElementalAlchemist: lrrGOAT
Armyguy0: And it was a head at long last @LoadingReadyRun
ElementalAlchemist: That was fast
PharaohBender27: The Buddha-chobu?
korvys: Chobhudda
korvys: Chobuddha, rather
azureHaights: The chobu that can be described is not the true chobu. The chobu that can be found is not the true chobu.
IncredibleFrown: let's see what's behind door number 1!
dangerous_safety: i mean, its a castle
Agl0vale: 2 of them have tigers
Kramburger: One door tells the truth, one lies, and one will stab you for asking tricky questions
mahpete_: plant jail?
orbitaltuna: wat
Kramburger: SHENUHA NO
IncredibleFrown: c h i c k e n
A_Dub888: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! There's no money in the tarp budget for that.
DiscordianTokkan: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That's not how you wear that.
TehAmelie: a prison for chickens with pathing errors
Calaban161: Air walking chiken
IncredibleFrown: it's doing the rooster step
Dog_of_Myth: Who broke that chicken
Nigouki: bwak bwak, motherfuckers
Juliamon: I'm glad Ryo is also concerned
IncredibleFrown: kukeeeeeeee
Juliamon: The HELL is that poster...
korvys: That's a picture of you!?
DiscordianTokkan: That's him!
CaptainSpam: I mean, we all know the moment you find Shenua, you're going in one of those cells.
SnivianMoon: I think that's the most emotion Ryo's displayed all game.
PharaohBender27: Wait, that's a picture of US
Kramburger: So much Garlic though!
korvys: He likes garlic too
dangerous_safety: Siude
Kramburger: We need to get in and free that garlic
TehAmelie: i only wish the Ryo picture had had a caption saying "HIM"
korvys: Ghosts!
PharaohBender27: Gollum!
Decaped: murder gollum in front of the pictures of his family! It's the Shenmue way.
jetpixi: Dem skillz
TehAmelie: hey, this isn't Gollum, it's Quasimodo
kusinohki: did we find the cat?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: that might be the only cat i dislike
jetpixi: Kitty Quest complete?!
Kramburger: Okay buddy, no eye gouging, that's a DQ
enki1256: This guy is... properly creepy. And i wanna play a monknow.
Pal_Friendpatine: Quasigollum
Agl0vale: was gollum the cat all along?
CaptainSpam: Geez, Ryo, double-tap.
Litebuffroast: IF YOU DARE....!
Kramburger: You never expect the hunchback to wear jorts, yet here we are
JohnLockeCole: well that was a much easier reverse body check
TehAmelie: i'm scared of that elbow strike with the palm up. seems like a fast way to doslicate your elbow
Kramburger: "Speaking of, who wants to play faceoff before we get started?"
Litebuffroast: Nope. you had your shot. Best to settle your losses on the way out.
Kramburger: I wonder what side Shenuha's father sleeps on?
korvys: Yes
mahpete_: yes
SnivianMoon: The final boss battle better be a round of Face Off.
Calaban161: I like my face where it is Kramburger
PharaohBender27: No, Ryo - you must face the last boss on your own
CaptainSpam: Face-Off is the endgame QTE
TehAmelie: Ryo is just that hot
Dog_of_Myth: HahaShrugLeft lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR HahaShrugRight
JohnLockeCole: it was always lit, just the fire didn't pop in to view until you were close enough
Pal_Friendpatine: Yup. All those torches were like auto lights
TheMerricat: lol
Kramburger: Such herbs to collect
jetpixi: o.o
r10pez10: it's a red snake
CaptainSpam: Okay, no, game, this is way the hell too late to pull a male gaze.
TehAmelie: i bet Shenhua likes it better here than anywhere else she's been
Inquisitor_Xian: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:10:07.
Kramburger: She decorated her room with P Diamonds
TehAmelie: i'm betting she's THE red snake
Electrodyne: Find the Chobu hiding in her bead curtains.
Litebuffroast: Such a weird lair for a....traitor?
jetpixi: Does she just chill on that sofa all day?
Kramburger: She's actually just dipped her arms in liquid latex
r10pez10: i actually forgot most of the plot
TehAmelie: if you had an ottoman, wouldn't you lunge in it whenever you had the chance?
r10pez10: what does the mirror do?
jetpixi: I feel like she lays there and waits
jetpixi: Never know who's gonna come in all heroic like
Kramburger: Our princess is in another castle
e_bloc: we're going to the castle, we're gonna get shenmued!
PMAvers: No, he's in a different castle.
Juliamon: If I looked like her and had a chaise like that, I would never leave it.
r10pez10: who is lan di?
PMAvers: In Shenmue 4.
SnivianMoon: Yes, Ryo. That's what she just said. Lan Di is in the castle. Do you have Solid Snake Syndrome?
jetpixi: Yeah fair @Juliamon
ElementalAlchemist: Shenmue IV: Ryo climbs this hill to the casatle
PharaohBender27: I had to refer to him by name instead of "your father" for formality's sake
ElementalAlchemist: castle
Litebuffroast: Give'em the Bear ian!
Electrodyne: Ryo and other guy go to White Castle
Kramburger: Ah yes, colour-coded enemies
TehAmelie: fighting seems t go our way as long as we have railings on which the bad guys can fold over backwards
Dog_of_Myth: One Kick Man
JohnLockeCole: Ok, so like, who is Lan Di? is he the one who killed our father? I'm assuming not or they'd need a new hook for the next five games
PMAvers: "Block high, you idiots."
jetpixi: You don't skip leg day!
Litebuffroast: The bear!
SnivianMoon: Snappin' necks and breakin' spines.
DiscordianTokkan: Hahahah
therisingtithes_: Ryo Hazuki, the Ankle of God
Driosenth: can you get a two-for
Fruan: Later, the police find 57 men dead of a broken neck.
kusinohki: "it won't be like fighting 1 or 2 red snakes!"
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: The "Boot To The Head" technique truly is unbeatable
Nigouki: who would have thought that kicking people in the temple was so effective
DiscordianTokkan: Ooh. a two-fer
Driosenth: YES you can
TehAmelie: hey, i recognize that power kick from Bryan Fury
korvys: Something something, swipe left
Dog_of_Myth: 2 for 1
PharaohBender27: "Hey, you think we should help are comrades in front of us?" - "Nah:
TheAinMAP: Two-for-one!
Calaban161: The 2 for 1 special
Pal_Friendpatine: This is the type of content I’m paying for!
r10pez10: oh hey it's the stairs from Joker
PharaohBender27: *"Nah"
Kramburger: "I'm WoRrieD YoUR KUng fU iSn'T STrOnG EnOuGh"
TehAmelie: forward, forward, right kick. it's quite good when Bryan Fury does it
Litebuffroast: Ren is dead man.
Pal_Friendpatine: Very efficient
TheMerricat: You know if I saw a guy just thunder thigh his way through 30 other folk, I don't know if I'd step up to him.
Kramburger: Ded
r10pez10: sweep the legs!
PMAvers: We get to the final boss, and he's all "Hmm, come back after getting another five ranks of kung fu."
jetpixi: Broom-Fu
Calaban161: Whel she cleans up
Vyous: I'm sad she doesn't yell "men!"
Dog_of_Myth: Sweeping up the bad guys
asddsa28: witha blad
dangerous_safety: use the other end
Calaban161: *well
Kramburger: If she had a real weapon, she could destroy the world
Litebuffroast: Ha. He just points at her and nothing happens.
PharaohBender27: The broom technique!
SnivianMoon: So Lan Di just employs Lemmings, then.
jetpixi: this is hilarious
e_bloc: I think I'd let her broomstick with that
r10pez10: haha it worked twice
Pal_Friendpatine: Her wooden shoes had foley work
A_Dub888: #Efficiency
DiscordianTokkan: A broom dispatch conveyor belt
TheMerricat: lol
jetpixi: Like an assembly line off ass kicking
Electrodyne: zoom out on the pile of 700 mooks in the river
jetpixi: of*
Kramburger: Is there a sun in the sky yet?
SnivianMoon: It's all asskicking from here on in.
PMAvers: "And that's how that river came to be known as the Corpse River."
JohnLockeCole: really more face kicking at this point
enki1256: Roadhouse!
DiscordianTokkan: Oh! These ones get back up!
jetpixi: lol @PMAvers
r10pez10: they even managed to pace the final fights oddly
mahpete_: are we over leveled or something?
TheAinMAP: Well, they can get back up at least.
Dog_of_Myth: WHAT
Kramburger: These guys look like a bunch of Yakuza OCs
enki1256: Especially purple shirt guy. And green tanktop there.
TehAmelie: i want to say that was Bruce Lee's Rising Dragon kick but i'm not sure if that only existed in Street Fighter
DiscordianTokkan: RIGHT in the kidney
SnivianMoon: Niiiiice
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: a sleeveless vest?
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: with a singlet?
RassilonDND: Wow, thats a nice 900's jacket
Dog_of_Myth: It's a bold fashion statement
Kramburger: @RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt For showing off the guns
SnivianMoon: We still have so much Snake Juice.
DiscordianTokkan: @RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt ... Aren't... all vests sleeveless? D:
korvys: What happens if you can't finish this by 9pm?
Gascitygaming: Ooo what ya drinking tonight Ian?
Dog_of_Myth: Ole
SnivianMoon: Nothing stops the Blob!
jkoon78076: music stopped for a second. shits gonna go down
DiscordianTokkan: Tsingtao is pretty decent
jetpixi: It's a fine enough beer
asddsa28: i like him the best
RassilonDND: its like heiniken, but.... the same
Mysticman89: ah that. I've heard is pronounced not how it looks
Pal_Friendpatine: Tsing Tao @gascitygaming
SydPreviouslyHeadache: I mistookt hat man for a doofus, but no. he's amazing
Kramburger: Tsingtao is.... definatly a beer
e_bloc: but Ian you've been playing this game since last year, you've had so much time
TehAmelie: Victoria sounds fairly cosmopolitan i must say
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: @DiscordianTokkan .... yes, yes they are.
RassilonDND: the chinese way to pronounce it is Ching-dao
IncredibleFrown: it's so clean you can see through it to shenmue
SketchyDetails: oh man. If you run out of time and it hits 9pm and everyones just like"M Well Its bed time, lets go home"
Pal_Friendpatine: For those who know Chinese is it pronounced Ching-dao?
Gascitygaming: I've tried that, it's fine, yeah not really a strong taste, whether that's a positive or negative is up to you
SnivianMoon: Time for the re-rematch against this big doofus!
Calaban161: It took you most of a day to clime the stairs
Litebuffroast: Wait, are they about to ensemble this castle?
SnivianMoon: @SketchyDetails Oh wow, that would be AMAZING.
RvLeshrac: The only Chinese beer I've ever seen is Tsingtao
RassilonDND: @Pal_Friendpatine Ching-dao is the correct pronounciation
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: good lord, that face. is he a jojo?
PMAvers: Wait, is he just going to stand there and watch?
TheDarium: Of course those others are having an easy time. Ryo already went through there.
Mysticman89: ching dao is how I've heard its 'supposed' to be pronounced, but actually calling it that tends to cause confusion
l0gin4me: And your friend just stands there watching...
SnivianMoon: Little does this guy realize we're packing Snake Juice.
enki1256: I think Lucky Buddha is a Chinese beer. With bottles in the shape of Buddha.
RassilonDND: Chinese beers arent popular outside china, mainly because they are so cheap in china and the difference in water quality standards
Agl0vale: "red why are you just standing there damnit?!"
Pal_Friendpatine: Cool thanks @rassilondnd I always thought I’d heard that was correct
DiscordianTokkan: Tiger beer is pretty good also. From... Singapore, I think?
jetpixi: Actual pronounciation is good to know. Thanks all
PharaohBender27: My understanding is that Tsingtao is based on German beers from the brief time Germany had a small colony in China between the end of the Boxer Rebellion and WWI
SnivianMoon: ExCUSE me?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: what? this game
JohnLockeCole: oh shit
Dog_of_Myth: Wow
SketchyDetails: lol
IncredibleFrown: they unlock items from the "toy door" set
SydPreviouslyHeadache: oh ok
SketchyDetails: gatcha?
SnivianMoon: Oh thank goodness.
RassilonDND: @PharaohBender27 correct, thus the heinekin reference
SydPreviouslyHeadache: that's actually good design
JohnLockeCole: ahhh ok we don't have to go all the way back to red lady convo again
Mysticman89: I work at a chinese resturant, and I've only heard one bustomer actually refer to it as ching dao
dangerous_safety: and you dont even need to walk all the way back, how nice
Litebuffroast: Oh, wow. a backdoor out of who noes where
Kramburger: An actual sun!
SketchyDetails: jason on the drone again?
PMAvers: Man, someone had a nice drone in this time period.
Mysticman89: and thats in like 5 years
DiscordianTokkan: @Mysticman89 ... Right, for some reason I never realized it'd be pronounced like that.
SnivianMoon: Snake Juice!
ElementalAlchemist: This guy hits hard
Calaban161: Don't forget your Reverse Body Check
Mysticman89: apparently it's named after the place it comes from, which has the same name and similar pronunciation confusion.
PharaohBender27: @RassilonDND But Heineken's Dutch (pushes imaginary glasses up nose)
SnivianMoon: The Reverse Body Check is the QTE move we learned from Grandmaster Bei specifically to beat this guy.
DiscordianTokkan: Like, I remember Tao as Dao, and I think a friend had mentioned (like, two decades back) Tsing as Ching. Languages are fun. :D
Kramburger: Which is different from the back body check we learnt in the village
Kramburger: !advice
LRRbot: Just make the polygons touch!
dangerous_safety: !badadvice
LRRbot: Use your body to cushion your own fall.
dangerous_safety: LRRbot on point today
SketchyDetails: No more James!?
dangerous_safety: LUL
SnivianMoon: Go Ian, Go!
r10pez10: thanks for your help, ren
RassilonDND: @PharaohBender27 its a pale lager, which though the company is dutch, the most popular beer in germany would be pilsner, which is similar to a pale lager
ElementalAlchemist: Should've practiced with more Excite QTE 3
Pal_Friendpatine: So if nothing actually touches anything (because atoms are mostly space and electromagnetic fields are what interact) then do polygons really touch?
SnivianMoon: You hit that man so hard subtitles came out!
jetpixi: Aw yeah
SydPreviouslyHeadache: the only way that could be better is if he did the Akuma slide at him first
PharaohBender27: For the record, I've had Tsingtao, and found it pretty good. But then my standards for beer boil down to - nothing "Lite," and no Coors, American Budweiser, or PBR
Alephred: That's the move that cost you 5000 bucks?
Calaban161: Just like a Kamen Rider finisher
SnivianMoon: Ah yes, here we are in the alley of Batch.
Oatway_: aggressively inoffensive
r10pez10: kinda surprised one of the statue heads isn't a chobu
e_bloc: ah, my favorite kind of alcohol: inoffensive
IncredibleFrown: chobu is the last boss
jetpixi: what....are you doing
DiscordianTokkan: For whatever reason (likely the rice) I can only taste Budweiser as watered down saké
Dog_of_Myth: TOS
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I can promise you, you found the last one already.
Kramburger: Final boss is a game of face off with a real live Chobu
PharaohBender27: But . . . I like inoffensive lagers - at least, European inoffensive lagers
RassilonDND: @PharaohBender27 Everyone has a different pallet and therefore a unique taste in beer. I am sure what works for you is fine :)
kusinohki: chobu censor dot??
TheDarium: Not knowing THAT much about chinese architecture, gotta say this looks more like a temple then a castle.
RassilonDND: Enjoy responsibly
asddsa28: why the hell is this not falling aprt
SnivianMoon: I feel like you're right about that.
enki1256: Is this... the... what?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: was that dude adam koebel?
Kramburger: Who invited the local Jockey Club?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: those out of place dudes? what makes you think that
PharaohBender27: @RassilonDND lrrHEART :D
TheMerricat: Hipster kung-fu
r10pez10: oh the "get beaten up in our game" tier
RockPusher: dixGRITCHAMP fugiWow
PharaohBender27: @RassilonDND Dangit, I meant :)
RassilonDND: The one in blue is what I imagine the residents of dawson city look like
Gascitygaming: Speaking of eating garlic. One time when my dad was around 10 or 11 he had a really bad cold but wanted to go to a movie, my Baba (Ukrainian grandma) made him a sandwich with butter a whole bulb of garlic. He felt better by that night and went to the movie but no one sat within a row of him. benginFingers benginFingers
kusinohki: how much for the "running away like a coward" tier?
Kramburger: No... we fight *well*. Lex Luthor fights good
SnivianMoon: This scene right here is peak Shenmue.
Alephred: The time of day changed on that one staircase.
Mysticman89: delicious, but lonely.
RassilonDND: :( i need to make some maple apple butter
ElementalAlchemist: garlic is great
DiscordianTokkan: Sephiroth?!
Kramburger: I ythought we'd body check the door
Bobtheninjagoldfish: SEPHIROTH?
SnivianMoon: LAN DI
Juliamon: Lan Di!!
Gascitygaming: lol very lonely, my grandpa used to grow garlic in margarine tubs on the kitchen table lol
RockPusher: No surprises that Ian "Onion like an Apple" Horner would be on the garlic sandwich train
Litebuffroast: Yodaface?
Alephred: These must be backers too. :D
ElementalAlchemist: Lan Di?!?!?!?!?!
Kramburger: Lon Di, you've gained some many more pixels since I last saw you!
enki1256: The admiral! He needs a tricorn hat.
TheDarium: who's that sepherioth looking guy?
RassilonDND: You know hes the boss when his henchmen are basically asian FF villians
Litebuffroast: or Yo-Da-Face?
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: that dude looks like he's cosplaying Guybrush Threepwood
TheAinMAP: Ouch.
Pal_Friendpatine: @gascitygaming I know someone who used the same technique to get over a cold. Raw garlic rips my digestion up something awful otherwise I’d use the technique too wattsLOL
r10pez10: the fight scenes look legit
r10pez10: wonder if it was mocap
AranMathai: That old man just died.
Gascitygaming: @Pal_Friendpatine i've never wanted to get over a cold so badly as to try it lol
jetpixi: teehee
SnivianMoon: Perfection
Pal_Friendpatine: @gascitygaming wattsLOL wattsLOL
RassilonDND: NOOO!
Armyguy0: YEs
tergonis: hwarang nooooo!
l0gin4me: Sure, take the easy one
Kramburger: Goodbye, Rooster Sephiroth
Pal_Friendpatine: It was Chinese Neo
Juliamon: You Died
Oatway_: hugged to death
ElementalAlchemist: And it will remain unanswered
ElementalAlchemist: welp
therisingtithes_: that's all your bones, Ryo
PMAvers: Ah, we got Zangief'd.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: has Ian ever hiot one of these first time?
A_Dub888: !findquote hug
LRRbot: Quote #2170: "You can't hug the moon without it hugging back." —Cameron [2016-03-26]
Kramburger: He's the Big Hug Thug, with a Big Hug Mug
TheAinMAP: lrrWOW
RassilonDND: This reminds me of the fight from IP Man
Alephred: I have to assume Yu Suzuki doesn't think much of Jeet Kun Do
enki1256: Back to the start.
jetpixi: Hey! That looks like Pawn Shop guy!
SnivianMoon: A Japanese youth gets caught in a time loop based on failing QTE battles. This is Groundhog Day: Shenmue edition.
IncredibleFrown: why does clucking sephiroth get to hang out in lan di's room
r10pez10: they spent all their budget on this
RassilonDND: actually, now that im watching, this seems like similar fighting styles
enki1256: And we getes to hear this guy again at least.
SnivianMoon: On the plus side, we get to see this again.
PharaohBender27: So I just realized a weird stereotype in how martial arts are represented in media - guys who are like 80+ being as nimble as 30-year-olds - even if you're an expert, wouldn't the effects of aging at least slightly slow you down?
jetpixi: teeheehee
r10pez10: we get to rewatch where the money went!
orbitaltuna: wat
Bobtheninjagoldfish: how much did this make on kickstarter?
Kramburger: Oh shit, they guy serves Bibidy!
orbitaltuna: she is very red
r10pez10: that poor guy's shop
TheMerricat: 69,320 backers pledged $6,333,295 to help bring this project to life.
A_Dub888: benginBurn benginBurn benginBurn benginBurn
SydPreviouslyHeadache: jesus
e_bloc: that's a lot of yuan
DiscordianTokkan: 100 backers away from perfection
Juliamon: 100 backers off
SnivianMoon: And they needed LOTS more than $6M to make it happen.
TheAinMAP: benginBurn
DarkMorford: $6M is Desert Bus money!
orbitaltuna: well lan di da
RassilonDND: HS18Burned
r10pez10: they were aiming for more than 6 mil? wow
ElementalAlchemist: oh
mahpete_: oof, one of the top google results is "shenmue 3 kickstarter refund"
e_bloc: love fish
Kramburger: The reward tier to be one of those backer enemies was $10,000
PMAvers: And they all died in the fire.
ElementalAlchemist: It's not just Lan Di after all
reechii: powerful finger
Mysticman89: Is this the six fingered man?
Alephred: Reminder, this game is part 3 of a projected 11.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: so they introduce an interesting char and it's right at the end like "lololololol shewnmue 4.."
Gascitygaming: who do we have for suspects for this arson? What about that lady who is always dressed in red and has red hair? Nah too obvious
TheDarium: So... new villaness next game?
RayneTheDarkLadyOfSalt: This really is a 1970s wuxia movie in video game form, isn't it?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: actually yeah, that's a good point
ElementalAlchemist: "You're not ready to fight me. You should train at the dojo. Come back when you're the 15th duan." --Lan Di
RockPusher: gabyLul
IncredibleFrown: nice first move
jetpixi: LOL oh no
Kramburger: Make him make the first move, Conway!
Decaped: shenmue 3 also got publisher funding as well as Epic funding too
RockPusher: excellent first move
orbitaltuna: is this timed? :o
l0gin4me: Is Lan Di the only person responsible for the dad's death? Or is he just one of many across multiple games?
kumatsu: I'm confused, I thouhgt this game was a countryside chore simulator lrrBEEJ
Mysticman89: I think kickstarter and the like are often mostly to demonstrate interest to the major investors.
TheMerricat: he original Shenmue was the most expensive video game ever developed at the time, with an estimated production and marketing cost of over US$47 million
TheAinMAP: Still benginBurn ing.
TehAmelie: is this going to be like the part in Inquisition where suddenly you're on a timer you're not told about and if you're too slow everyone dies?
Driosenth: Is Lan Di Orange Cassidy?
DiscordianTokkan: YEET
r10pez10: ultimate frisbee mirror
TehAmelie: i'll get you at the next LAN!
RockPusher: guess your Kung Fu wasn't high enough after all
SydPreviouslyHeadache: how many of the Shenmue games did they want to make?
Mysticman89: now he flies out the window and catches it
RassilonDND: dick move, he really wanted that ultimate frisbee
chemicalrascal: some say it's still flying through the air to this day
Gascitygaming: I could have really used an Adam "YEET!" right there
Alephred: Yu Suzuki thinks the whole story will take 11 parts.
Decaped: yay Arson
RassilonDND: are they all just watch a crime?
PMAvers: "Fire is nice."
TehAmelie: extreme close up does not make Ryo's emotional expression any more convincing
kumatsu: New Year's Bonfire
Juliamon: RIP that crazy chicken that definitely nobody let out
chemicalrascal: waiting for someone to break out the marshmallows
r10pez10: oh no
jetpixi: oh no the chiccy
PharaohBender27: cheerwhal311 Well, this was a heck of a ride
RockPusher: danicaChicken benginBurn notthatChicken
ANeMzero: @Alephred It's 11 chapters but 2 and 3 are multiple chapters. He still thinks there is another 2 games left to make though.
SnivianMoon: THE CATS
r10pez10: i'll never complete my toy key set
Juliamon: CAT
jetpixi: CATS
DiscordianTokkan: KITTY
A_Dub888: So.... is Lan Di dead?
mahpete_: cats, but no sun!
RockPusher: rudeOri rudeOri rudeOri
tergonis: now let us pet them!
TehAmelie: oh, i'm sure the chicken was grinding against geometry to escape into a parallel universe just in time
ConspicuousCompiler: Yes. Hello. I came here for Cats the Musical.
orbitaltuna: is this the end?
TheDarium: Chicken was in the first building, not the castle.
SydPreviouslyHeadache: on the one hand i want to see where it goes, well see someone play it, but. well i guess this game has enough of a following
TheAinMAP: katesLoaf
Bobtheninjagoldfish: so... who was flamey Mc Redhair?
reechii: lol is this the end?
ElementalAlchemist: We finally found the cats of Niaowu
r10pez10: are _we_ Bailu?
TheMerricat: Speaking to USgamer back in June, Suzuki said that Shenmue III gets through about 40 percent of Ryo’s story. Back in 2015, during a Reddit AMA, Suzuki revealed that there are a total of 11 chapters in the Shenmue story. “Over the past 14 years I originally planned for there to 4 or five games to the series,” he said. “If at all possible, I would still like to realize the full story of 11 chapters.”
ElementalAlchemist: How else are we going to get taken by the storm of Bailu?
dangerous_safety: Ryo must find additional girlfriends in other lands
orbitaltuna: the real friends are the bailu we made on the way?
SnivianMoon: The Baliu was inside us the whole time... No, wait, that's just Bile. Our liver makes that.
ConspicuousCompiler: It turns out that the real Bailu was the friends we made along the way.
orbitaltuna: that bell keeps making me think of the auction house
Bobtheninjagoldfish: so... who was flamey Mc Redhair?
Driosenth: I'd like to see this story end in another 17 years
Pal_Friendpatine: @snivianmoon isn’t that the gall bladder that makes bile?
blip2004: the gallbladder stores bile
SnivianMoon: Yes, @Pal_Friendpatine , you're right! I had a brainfart.
Pal_Friendpatine: @blip2004 gallbladder stores, liver makes?
JohnLockeCole: So if they have the Dragon and Pheonix Mirrors, than they still need Tiger and Turtle, right?
TehAmelie: sort of a reverse that thing when TV shows go on past their prime as long as they make money, they'll squeeze more games in if they "can" make the money
SnivianMoon: We might not have beaten Lan Di. But at least now he KNOWS... We LOVE FISH.
RockPusher: Cliff Temple, Private Eye
JohnLockeCole: To be Seiryuu, Suzaku, Genbu, and.... the one that's a tiger
blip2004: it is made in the liver and contains dead blood cells which gives it it's yellow colour
l0gin4me: byakko?
RockPusher: Loooooong Looooooong Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun
JohnLockeCole: yeah that one
RassilonDND: I would love to see what would happen if we ever got a shemue complete edition
ElementalAlchemist: But the most important question in this game, "How are we even friends?" was never answered
TehAmelie: is he also Keyser Söze?
r10pez10: Ryo will return
r10pez10: in SHENMUE 4.0
DiscordianTokkan: That boat is HAULIN ass
Kramburger: We're flashing back to a conversation we literally JUST had
SydPreviouslyHeadache: i'm not sure that's still a boat at that point. damn
kumatsu: rayfkSanic
PharaohBender27: Why are we suddenly in sepia?
IncredibleFrown: shenmue: age of ultron
Pal_Friendpatine: @blip2004 oh wow so @snivianmoon is right! Bile is made in the liver! And stored in the gallbladder . Wow biology
TheMerricat: memories. @PharaohBender27
TehAmelie: a jet propelled catamaran disguised as a touristy river boat
therisingtithes_: We're in the other part of the middle-game now
RassilonDND: also, sadness that there are a few fish now extinct in the yangtse river
JohnLockeCole: Shenmue 4: Infinity Forklift War
SnivianMoon: Tune in next time for Shenmue 4, CHOBU'S REVENGE.
InquisitorGaia: Siccors in face off
TheMerricat: "Does my breath smell like garlic?"
DiscordianTokkan: RIP jacket
PMAvers: And they're all bowled over by a pandaren riding a barrel.
SnivianMoon: lrrGOAT there
00gogo00: "Flashback to earlier in this cutscene" is the most Japan thing ever
jetpixi: Maybe
PharaohBender27: The treasure's HIDDEN IN THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA
ANeMzero: Well see you guys in another 20 years for the next game
Mysticman89: why does he think lan di is alive? He was last seen standing in a bunring room?
Kramburger: They're gating us behind Kung Fu upgrades again! Can't defeat Lan Di, better go and practise kid!
RassilonDND: chat, im curious if we got all the gatcha/pachinko boards finished
Juliamon: RassilonDND Not even close
r10pez10: first rule of bodycounting, if you don't see a dead body you can't be sure they're dead
TehAmelie: ooh, new game +
TheAinMAP: lrrCHKN
TheMerricat: You know what would be sad? If Shenmue's story was finished before Gordon Freeman's.
RoastedGravy: Oh bus, I missed the ending.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: So who was the lady with the Red hair that set fire to everything.. she seemed at least interesting...
Juliamon: Let's Forklift
r10pez10: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:44:44.
InquisitorGaia: whos next in play it forward?
RoastedGravy: DANGIT
JohnLockeCole: Mysticman89 it was a burning room he had plenty of time to get out of, and Lan Di has wwaaaaayyyy stronger Kung Fu than Ryo and would have no problem getting out
TehAmelie: well, 2 hours of Pachinko then?
PharaohBender27: Well, I should sign off at this point. Good night, everyone! katesWave
SnivianMoon: If someone set out to 100% this game's collectibles, it would be an absolute terror.
kumatsu: the speedrun record for shenmue III is 4.5 hours
RassilonDND: More pachinko!
TheMerricat: night @PharaohBender27 !
Kramburger: Finished Early, now it's time to go finish Persona 5 for Adam
PMAvers: The ending has not yet been written.
Juliamon: It was pretty anticlimactic
TehAmelie: it was a very "episode 3 of 11" ending
IncredibleFrown: the ending is in shenmue 5
DiscordianTokkan: And a redheaded lady set fire to everything
RoastedGravy: Did we at least win Face-Off against Shenhua?
mahpete_: and gave away like 5 mirrors
SnivianMoon: I really do wish the fight with Lan Di were a bit more satisfying. Like, if you could at least land a hit.
RockPusher: Time to open the cabaret… oh wait lrrBEEJ tiltyhEXTREME
jkoon78076: goodnight Ian. :) gotta get to bed in the East coast
Kramburger: We have to go practise horse Stance before we can fight Lan Di
orbitaltuna: is there a secret ending?
TheMerricat: Threre is a letter from the author at the end of the credits.
DarkMorford: And now for an hour of scrolling backer names?
RoastedGravy: Can’t wait for Shenmue 4 in 2034, I guess. Kappa
CaptainSpam: I dunno, I'd go with the Muppet Movie and say that life is a movie, write your own ending.
RassilonDND: Does shenmue usually pays off 100% completion?
PMAvers: Needs a Dog Ending.
Decaped: Shenmue 4 will fulfill the prophecy and be a pachinko machine with some quicktime event cutscenes
JohnLockeCole: It seemed like we did stone zero damage to Lan Di, so I doubt there's a "actually do beat lan di" style of secret ending
Juliamon: I guess we could Chobu-hunt some more
Headshotcatcher: Loved the streams Ian!
Bobtheninjagoldfish: apparently the lady in red was in a Shenmue comic...
RockPusher: minigames are their own reward
SniperPumpkin: Dear Dr. Ian, Thanks so much for streaming this game, I'd never play it on my own, but it's a neat thing to experience with you and chat
Seagulyus: gratz on beating the game ian!
DarkMorford: Thanks for playing this one, Ian. Now I don't have to! ;)
Alephred: 'Volcano' is a strong name.
SnivianMoon: The whole theme of this game seemed to be "Your Kung Fu is not yet strong enough".
Juliamon: Check out this VA list tho
lirazel64: Good lord, you could spend your whole life and not get 100%
TheMerricat: Shenmue is a lifestyle choice.
RockPusher: The OG salaryman game
Alephred: Lord, how much was the 'dinner with Yu Suzuki in Monaco' tier?
Mysticman89: there was 4 "be a shenmue face" tier in the credits
Kramburger: It was a $10,000 tier in the Kickstarter
PMAvers: Sounds like a job for a mod
Oatway_: could there be a ShenmIan
IncredibleFrown: has any thought been given to what game is next
Mysticman89: For the right price, they'd probably let you.
mahpete_: that seems like a lot of money
SnivianMoon: Ian, if you were a Shenmue shopkeep, what would your Real Human Conversation be?
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun you have the decanant man in the seasonal smash, don't be greedy. :-P
lirazel64: Ian, wouldn't you rather be a fishing champ?
InquisitorGaia: gnight ian, im a go walk my dog and then get dinner
Alephred: The 'Be a Shenmue NPC' and 'DInner with Yu' tiers were both $10,000
basilmemories: Thanks Ian! This was great to have after some health garbage today.
JohnLockeCole: I assume that's USD?
Alephred: Yes, USD
Driosenth: My Road Quest merch has been in shipping limbo for the past two days
RoastedGravy: The story was the friends we made along the way.
RockPusher ordered like 3 water bottles - Beej really struck gold with that merch idea
RoastedGravy: I hope they can finish the Shenmue story.
SnivianMoon: Huzzah!
Kramburger: !uptime

DiscordianTokkan: Thanks for the stream Ian! I should get to bed also, it's like 1am here
DarkMorford: Isn't there TTSF tomorrow evening?
chesul: wait, did you cancel TTSF?
PMAvers: So basically a usually Friday.
RockPusher: DarkMorford I was going to ask how that is possible with PPR prep - guess they figured it isn't
RoastedGravy: Blessu
RockPusher: or not
TheMerricat: And for the folks who missed it, Adam announced that Gamehaus is being retired once he finishes Persona. :-(
Driosenth: are you going to make a clock out of a hard drive cage and platter?
ANeMzero: oh no :(
erloas: magnets and shinny discs
Armyguy0: @LoadingReadyRun were will you put your shops chobu-chan?
Kramburger: ian pls
RockPusher: we watched you save this time
Juliamon: Isn't Hootie basically the LRR Chobu?
RoastedGravy books flight to Canada to find Chobu-Ian.
Kramburger: Ian's Shop is hidden inside a Chobu
DarkMorford: 4 platters on a motor makes for a good meat slicer. :P
asddsa28: i thoght that was sopt
Juliamon: Spot's not really a mascot
jetpixi: Thanks for streaming! Have a good night!
SnivianMoon: Thank you so much and sincerely for playing through this unique and wonderful game, Ian. I've enjoyed every stream, and very much appreciate your playing through it for us.
