Quaseymoto: Antici......Pation
lirazel64: Mmm... Easter dinner alone.
Juliamon: Audio?
GamesAndInk: No audio?
gualdhar: muted
Thatwasademo: Audio's off
lirazel64: Sound?
SAJewers: no audio here wither
constablecrab: Naughtio
Naarius: Ian isn't making mouth noises
TacitusVigil: Ian's so deep he's inaudible. Kappa
letfireraindown: well i'm not allone
SAJewers: or maybe he's a mime lrrBEEJ
Juliamon: Still silent
raven534: Ian, we want noise!
GamesAndInk: Nope that didn't help
lirazel64: No sound.
Juliamon: The intro was also mute
Naarius: Oh is the the interpretive dance rhythm cafe?
TacitusVigil: Ok....three words...
Quaseymoto: Ian is a great mime.
Drew_64: I can't hear you, can you hear us?
Konda020946: why do i feel like i am watching the swedish chef
FrozenNitrogen: I don't think sound is important for rhythm games
migelino164: this is where ASL would come in handy
kerbalized_: Time... headphone.. dance a bit. I'm bad at this game
SAJewers: Naarius: Rhythm Game Charades? :P
floki4242: the mad scientist needs to figure out the telecommunicator
BrainBetter: How many words? Is it a movie?
manglemonster: is it red?
constablecrab: Cut the blue wire!
LunarJade: Ian is trying to figure it out.
maestrith: Just bump the color to black and white and it's a throwback stream.
patbaer: I like that he kept talking, despite knowing we couldn't hear him
lirazel64: *shakes hips to indicate number of syllables *
raven534: I know very minor amounts of ASL
migelino164: I know Auslan, but not ASL
GamesAndInk: @maestrith I think it would be very funny if they did the stream in black and white, and occasionally cut to old timy caption cards with a random quote from the quote database in it
LunarJade: @patbaer thats cause I can hear him.
maestrith: 44-M-...oh Sign Language... my bad
LunarJade: I don't know why the sound isn't going out on the stream though.
maestrith: @GamesAndInk agreed
BrainBetter: I'm just very impressed by Ian's interpretive charading.
constablecrab: @GamesAndInk Huh. A silent movie themed rhythm game could work.
raven534: Pulsing screen for the rhythm?
Juliamon: AHA
raven534: Sound!
gualdhar: yes!
GamesAndInk: We can hear you!
manglemonster: YES
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Sound
migelino164: Got it

Serpens77: Hello, My Name Is Hello
constablecrab: lrrFINE
Reduce_Sanity: Blami!
mercano82: "First time caller, long time listener."
Dog_of_Myth: That certainly won't show up in the highlights.
manglemonster: Hello Hello, my name is also Hello!
migelino164: Ian, we agree you should get some ASL under your belt for situations like this
constablecrab: You do understand what the word "never" means, right?
mercano82: Go grab your legos, build a table, and flip it.
odamadillo: Hello Ian and Heather.
DarkMorford: No hearing game
GamesAndInk: I find it takes as long to get past Zone 4 as it takes to get past Zones 1-3
migelino164: zone 5 is dlc Amplified
odamadillo: Hello everyone.
mercano82: Is Zone 5 lit by gas?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: hello friends
robo__nixon: These days . . what is reality, really?
Juliamon: !addquote (Heather) [now] I like my conspiracy theory better...
LRRbot: New quote #6894: "I like my conspiracy theory better..." —Heather [2020-04-12]
migelino164: Zone 5 has those electric pipes. on the ground that "amplify" attacks if you or enemies stand on them
bi0buster: Oh... We learned a thing.
someusername5: I do love watching people learning this
GamesAndInk: Confusion is a hell of a status effect
Dog_of_Myth: Bombs are bad. Writes down notes
mariomario42: ShowLove100
bi0buster: Oh god this game is complete chaos.
mariomario42: hahaha
constablecrab: This seems awful
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun Remember, you're sharing a keyboard--you might have to bind spell keys for both of you
mariomario42: oh my
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun I just mean that the Steam screen sharing is having you on the same controller--sharing keys is what made Heather force you to fireball spam a couple sessions ago
robo__nixon: Is Ian in the Moonbase?
Thatwasademo: What does Pot of Greed do?
mariomario42: it just contains stuff
GamesAndInk: Holds lots of good stuff
niccus: really good stuff... just takes a lot of hits
raven534: !card pot of greed
LRRbot: Can't find any card by that name
raven534: Thought that was a card
Thatwasademo: it's a Yugioh card
mariomario42: bow is wonderful
migelino164: bows are pretty poggers
Thatwasademo: the joke is that every time it comes up in the anime they explain it again
mariomario42: you gotta side step them
raven534: !card horn of greed
LRRbot: Horn of Greed [3] | Artifact | Whenever a player plays a land, that player draws a card.
bi0buster: You force them to parry then sidestep.
constablecrab: Is the floor pattern some kind of chemical retort or what?
niccus: ayup! and potentially deadly if you're fighting multiple things at the same time
mariomario42: the bow did
Thatwasademo: careful of those exploding statues
raven534: Your ass is crypt
odamadillo: This is an interesting game
mariomario42: it just spawns skeletons
someusername5: one of my favorite background tracks on zone 4 level 2
migelino164: walls around you
mariomario42: that sword isn't going to last long
niccus: the tricky part is that when you can attack, you *must* attack -- so there's merit in using things with less range
migelino164: Xbow is better despite reload
migelino164: shots pierce IIRC
niccus: yeah, crossbows pierce and wreck the swordsmen
bravejrl: Cheer100 Hi :)
someusername5: hit, side, hit
mariomario42: you just attack him, then side step
niccus: you should practice with the monster keeper in the level select
niccus: you have to kill to out
mariomario42: sword guy doesn't attack if you're standing next to him unless you attack first
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun What I mean is I believe the way this steam remote play works is that it emulates you sharing a keyboard. Player 1 has shield bound to V, player 2 has it bound... to something else, if anything. When Heather hits V, it's like she's hitting Player 1's V.
banachspacebar: This is just to say: I have eaten / the cheese / that was in / the inventory
odamadillo: Ok I am completely lost. What on earth is going on in this game?
angryoptimist: If there's an apprentice blademaster, is there a master blademaster? A double-master?
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo Dungeon crawling but on a rhythm.
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo With elements of roguelike play
bi0buster: Heather has got the swordmasters down. You counterattack after they lunge.

odamadillo: @gamesandink Oh so a game I would suck at.
GamesAndInk: It's a rhythm game--as it turns out, all of these enemies are super easy if you can just memorize their rhythms :P
mariomario42: do you believe in miracles!
noSmokeFire: "don't fall for the spider trap" would be good !advice
angryoptimist: ^
manglemonster: ^^
migelino164: it just gets hard once they mix multiple enemies in the same small area
odamadillo: @gamesandink That sounds like quite the challenge. How long have they been playing this game?
someusername5: spiders georg
constablecrab: die-gar
Juliamon: I think this is the 5th session? But not consecutively.
angryoptimist: Ultimate Super Robot Die-Gar 5
noSmokeFire: it's wingardium dagger-oooosa
niccus: they have played a lot, they might not have learned a lot
constablecrab: Dang wall-mounted laser pigs
Juliamon: And this remote setup is different than the first times they played
Juliamon: (one of which they did with a gamepad)
Serpens77: OGRE THUMP
GamesAndInk: For instance, right there we just learned that the ogre has a 3-range attack
Juliamon: *dance pad, rather
constablecrab: You just got killed by Fuzzy Lumpkins
odamadillo: This is my first time watching this game and from what I can tell the pro strat is just keep running away.
bi0buster: Also the tempo is really high so it can be very difficult to make good decisions.
UnusuallyLargeMoth: @LoadingReadyRun I would love to say I could do better but in reality I would probably choke under pressure anyways you're doing fine cheers
bi0buster: I love the shopkeep vocals.
Robot_Bones: bombs for Safes?
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo That's not far off. The trick is that each enemy has a movement pattern, so when possible you want to get distance so you can get into the groove
Sarah_Serinde: Hullo friends
constablecrab: You are doing the lord's work
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
noSmokeFire: you're not experts, but you ARE professionals
VoodontWoW: My doctorate was for nothing !
angryoptimist: What's the saying? "Half of everything is showing up"?

odamadillo: @gamesandink Have you played this too or is that your observation?
angryoptimist: Suddenly, dragon.
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo I've played this for a couple hundred hours. It's a good 'unwind after stressful day' game
bi0buster: Did that monkey just get lasered?
someusername5: nice
GamesAndInk: That drum is awesome
constablecrab: This track is hype
odamadillo: @gamesandink You use this as a chill out game? If I played it myself it would have the opposite effect. The only rhythm game I can use to chill out is Final fantasy Theatrhythm.
constablecrab: Frozen monkeys are so refreshing on a hot day.
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo I mean, the fact you're concentrating on visual and auditory stimuli with every nerve helps block out whatever in reality is stressing you out. Can't be stressed if your brain doesn't have room for it.
bi0buster: "A lot of stuff just happened to me" Ah yes, Necrodancer.
seantheman2: how's the game, Ian
seantheman2: just noticed I'm a sub again. Waaat?
xenagosthesatyr: I have only just barely played this game with a buddy of mine, but she introduced me to the game and now I've introduced her to LRR. I think that's a good exchange
constablecrab: They're batting 10000
lirazel64: I have a lovely belfrey...
GamesAndInk: Ring of Luck protects you from bats, in case it becomes available. Since bats move randomly, it makes it so they can never randomly move into your space.

odamadillo: @gamesandink That is true. I suppose that is what happens when I play Theatrhythm. I suppose I should try this out myself at some point. Is it better alone or with a friend like Ian and Heather are doing?
angryoptimist: Ian's got the hang of the parry guys, it seems.
GamesAndInk: @odamadillo I've never played with a friend. Maybe it's easier that way? Not sure
Seagulyus: oh my god is that pickle rick?
angryoptimist: You're thinking of a Stand from Part 4, Heather. Kappa
noSmokeFire: welcome to the house of lyres
odamadillo: I guess only Ian and Heather can say if playing together is easier huh.
angryoptimist: That weapon is AWESOME
angryoptimist: Never didn't have it
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun The sleeping statues that don't do anything have goodies in them if you blow them up or hit them with a big attack.
bi0buster slow clap
head_cannon: "Did you forget?" "...Only a little!"
GamesAndInk: WHY IAN
HorusFive: Ian-"I'm Invincible" [explodes}
bi0buster: HAHAHAHA
bi0buster: Ian that was amazing.
bi0buster: You could not have timed that better.
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun Additional note: You have to learn to recognize which statues are "wind", "sleeping/treasure", "bomb" and "mimic"
MAPBoardgames: Necromancers: Healers who never gave up.
viridimayai: Take the Ring of War! It's super good
odamadillo: @gamesandink You know this game so what can you play it on?

angryoptimist: CurseLit CurseLit CurseLit
bi0buster: That one is uhh. Cadence of Hyrule?
Kirgo: Glass weapons are the ultimate weapon of skill and purpose! Do or die!
viridimayai: I know it's easy to forget sometimes, but remember your spells.
MAPBoardgames: Why are the shovels digging so much?
GamesAndInk: The walls are crumbly I think?
Kirgo: @MAPBoardgames Level 4 has very crumy walls.
odamadillo: @juliamon The Zelda game? Did they play that game previously?
someusername5: eat the ham, get the cheese
Kirgo: Its meant to make accidental overwhelming attacks against you.
Juliamon: odamadillo They did! Look for Cadence of Hyrule in the vod archives
angryoptimist: Cadence of Hyrule was played here, yes.
Juliamon: They played it twice: once the base game, once the DLC
Juliamon: Multiple episodes each
MAPBoardgames: aromor?
odamadillo: I will look at that after this then. I still need to catch up on Play it forward and Heather's animal Crossing streams.
viridimayai: Walls on Zone 4 are very weak, you destroy a wall and all adjacent walls when you dig them, so you can knock spiders off walls by destroying a wall next to the one a spider is one
constablecrab: I do love the golem's dance
Kirgo: I assume there are no teleporter monkeys?
Kirgo: Due to coop mode?
someusername5: no, teleport monkeys still exiat
someusername5: *exist
bi0buster: Heather is clearing house damn.
Kirgo: Ah. Both get teleported.
Kirgo: Niffty work around.

angryoptimist: Nutritious wall meat.
odamadillo: Does anyone know if Ian and Heather have ever played the Singstar games on this?
MAPBoardgames: It said "drumstick" and I was not expecting a chicken leg
constablecrab: What if that IS their shrunk size?
HorusFive: You don't take your own product
angryoptimist: You can't make up the streets. Kappa
Kirgo: The spiders are almost harmless if you dig the wall next to them.
Kirgo: They fall off!
viridimayai: You can dig spiders off walls
odamadillo: I think I have some of those somewhere. Want me to try to send them in?
Countzeroor: I wonder if they're on Marvel Digital Unlimited.
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun You can push crates and barrels onto spike traps for treasure
angryoptimist: Never Not Cheese
Kirgo: The trick is to dig the wall next to the spider.
viridimayai: You have to dig them by digging next to them, not directly
bi0buster: You've done it, you just have been busy dealing with other stuff at the time so you haven't noticed.
noSmokeFire: yup. La Puta. you got it.

Vlanoik: half a heart? take the gi
angryoptimist: Said in the same tone as "there was time now!"
Titan457: Success so immediately followed by failiure
viridimayai: Spiders can only move diagonally off the wall
Kirgo: Success so clearly in view, or perhaps merely a trick of the light?
bi0buster: I think that was because heather had the move+dig upgrade.
PixelArtDragon: Need some milk for that carrot
angryoptimist: Is that Loading Ready Law?
Kirgo: Curious is the trapmakers art. His own efficacy is unwitnessed by his own eyes.

bi0buster: Thank you for the sage advice Ian. I don't know how I made it this far without that
MAPBoardgames: If you eat the cheese, you will always have the chesse
viridimayai: This was a pretty good first floor
Countzeroor: The real health is the friends we made along the way.
bi0buster: Which zone was it that has the dual track that flips between metal and EDM depending on if you're on a "hot" or "cold" tile?
MAPBoardgames: he is our hero
thundercat2000: hi all
bi0buster: 12 diamonds dangdang.
angryoptimist: W e a l t h
MrPhlip: bi0buster: that's zone 3
angryoptimist: Next run, the diamond shop will be mono-glass items, just watch.
noSmokeFire: please, Ian. the correct plural is "spiders men"
bi0buster: Cast heal?
bi0buster: Just right off the bat, get dem HPs.
thundercat2000: porr Ian
angryoptimist: Now is still a good time to heal.
Kirgo: But axe HAS distance?
Kirgo: Or am I mistaken?
Ciijay: this levels song used to be the opening song
angryoptimist: F
angryoptimist: S'a good song.
bi0buster: The soundtrack to this game is great.

LunarJade: If I practiced with them I'd probably get the hang of them but I usually just stick to what I like.
constablecrab: I'm really glad LRR is still doing it's thing when basically every "variety" streamer I follow is exclusively playing Final Fantasy.
GamesAndInk: I can't stand the whip; the fact it sometimes does an attack to some distant enemy when I'm trying to flee one always kills me
angryoptimist: The a game that culturally large'll do that, I suppose.

MAPBoardgames: I'm excited for Talking Sim this week. I think "World of Horror" is the procedural generated horror game.
raven534: @constablecrab That's what Graham's doing on Play it Forward! (I think he's still in the middle of it)
constablecrab: Oh it was inevitable. But I have no interest in the remake.
odamadillo: @constablecrab Yeah it is good that Lrr provides such a great variety of content. It means there is actual things for me to watch besides spoilers for the game I am eagerly awaiting.
thundercat2000: Just started playing FF7R today.
thundercat2000: And Man the differences so far are interesting
LunarJade: Do you think its worth playing the original and the remake then?
LunarJade: I've not played the original, but I figured I'd just wait for the Remake to go on sale at some point.
thundercat2000: At this point I'd say play remake.

GamesAndInk: As far as I've seen, the Remake follows the same story but looks and feels better. I don't think playing the original is required reading, though I'd love to see Cam and Cori play 3 hours of each for Talking Sim.
thundercat2000: FF7 is great but it is a old PS1 RPG so it can be a little rough.
iris_of_ether: Ouendaaaaaaaaaaan!~
iris_of_ether: Osu!
thundercat2000: I would stay the story of remake is expanded from the original with what little I've seen.
Jigokuro: Ouendan is great
r10pez10: !donk
bi0buster: They expand a lot of the story in the remake because they take a 6 hour section and turn it into a 20 hour game.
angryoptimist: DONK DONK
odamadillo: @lunarjade The first real game I ever recall seeing was the original Ff7 so it will always have a place in my heart so my opinion is a bit biased but I would say it is a good idea to play the original first but it depends if you have the patience to endure a game that is quite out of date.

MAPBoardgames: A barrel of laughs... with teeth.
constablecrab: The parryman, henceforth to be known as Parry Como
thundercat2000: The materia system is one of the best final fantasy magic systems
odamadillo: @thundercat2000 I agree it is in the top three. 9's system is better though
someusername5: it escaped, you were a few beats too late
MAPBoardgames: Suprise!
thundercat2000: I found 9's was good but lacking
GamesAndInk: Heather living life to the beat of her own drum
MAPBoardgames: Of course she has babies. She's a mummy
constablecrab: Are those little skulls? I swear the look like sandwiches
thundercat2000: everyone was locked into their own skills
someusername5: crossbow is fun
niccus: oh shit
thundercat2000: And I know I'm weird in that I enjoy FF8's junction system
bi0buster: Yes, but we still accept you. :P
blip2004: I also like the junction system
thundercat2000: Only FF system where you can break the game disc 1
odamadillo: @thundercat2000 If I am honest now I understand it, I find the junction system good but as a kid I hated it with a passion.
GamesAndInk: Haha Heather picked up the ring of piercing--which doesn't matter because the crossbow has piercing.
TehAmelie: so many bats in that room
TehAmelie: is that bat country?
thundercat2000: @odamadillo Oh yeah it was not kid friendly at all.
trilemma85: Silly Ian, that was actually Kilt invulnerability. It provides a slight protection to bagpipes.
viridimayai: Oh yeah, the teleport monkeys
odamadillo: @thundercat2000 Especially when you are under 10 years old when you play it!
thundercat2000: Was surprised to find FF7R still has limit breaks didn't know that.
thundercat2000: oh... ouch.
odamadillo: @thundercat2000 I was 8 when I played it.
jubale1: everybody sing along!
MAPBoardgames: Peircing weapon! grab that other ring
viridimayai: Go get the ring back
thundercat2000: I'm enjoying the action combat so far
bi0buster: My problem with the junction system is mostly how it works with the magic system, you're incentivized to do really dumb grinding that isn't fun, but the idea of binding specific stuff to specific stats I find totally fine.
thundercat2000: And it seems purple materia this time around augments your physical attacks.
gualdhar: with as much cheese as you're eating you should be concerned with constipation
gualdhar: maybe take an immodium
thundercat2000: First one your find is deadly dodge which I think adds more damage when you attack after dodging .
MAPBoardgames: OWNED!
r10pez10: Ian will return, in Crypter of the Necrodancerer

MAPBoardgames: Yeah, that tracks
GamesAndInk: Crypt Charm is kinda perfect for Ian
GamesAndInk: Er Risk Charm
kusinohki: doesn't the risk charm mean you roll nothing but 1s?
GamesAndInk: Risk Charm gives you stupid bonus damage when you're at low health
niccus: and all you have to do is drop to half heart
ryllo7: this looks fun
TehAmelie: ooh we're RTSR now
MAPBoardgames: You got his Lucky charms
kusinohki: I think you grabbed his lucky charms!
banachspacebar: Lucky Charm, I think it said
viridimayai: Luck Charm is Awesome, gives you more good, and bat immunity
MAPBoardgames: Bloodlust?
GamesAndInk: Lucky Charm: extra items, can't be attacked by bats, food and stuff in crates is upgraded...
TehAmelie: dang, nobody give that to the Joker
viridimayai: LOL
r10pez10: lucky charm > sucky charm
TehAmelie: although it doesn't hold a candle to the ducky charm
Dog_of_Myth: !y
r10pez10: we like watching your flails, ian
viridimayai: Have they done the Dragon Dance codex?
TehAmelie: there's money in the banana stand, eh
odamadillo: All this cheese talk has made me want a cheese pizza.
ryllo7: but the cheese stands alone

TehAmelie: Ernie Floyd was once a member in a daily cheese club. it did not go well
r10pez10: must have been tickled pink
r10pez10: "he used to do it on his bike ... now he has an ice cream van"
RealGamerCow: grey market cheese, okay
TehAmelie: wait, it was a monthly cheese club. but then they did deliver 25 kg at a time
ryllo7: and yes you are a gouda guy
constablecrab: Ian stop! You're going to make me empty my fridge!
nanostul: Does he hang out with James' Stone guy?
Sethalidos: dammit Ian you're making me hungry
PixelArtDragon: Damn, now I want cheese.
noSmokeFire: cheese van cheese van cheese van
r10pez10: cheeth cheeth cheeth
RealGamerCow: I just had potatoes au gratin, so I'm good. For now.
bi0buster: Ben already made me order popcorn chicken today.
Dog_of_Myth: Cheese van down by the river....
angryoptimist: Heather found the monsters.
odamadillo: My mum works for a supermarket so we have access to a lot of cheese
bi0buster: You load in a magazine of bolts... Somehow.
Dog_of_Myth: That's a room
MAPBoardgames: There is a milk processing plant in my town. You used to be able to get cheese right there from a little shop.
TehAmelie: i once read an article claiming cheese was as addictive as heroin. seems possible, but i feel like someone else would have said something about it if it was the case
r10pez10: big dairy is suppressing it
raven534: TehAmelie I think that was sugar, wasn't it? Or is it also (allegedly) true of cheese?
r10pez10: now please inject the monterey jack
TehAmelie: it was cheese
raven534: Huh, strange
PixelArtDragon: "Why is it all breakable, shopkeep?" sounds like a ganster threatening a business.
TehAmelie: i mean i would test it but i can't go without my breakfast cheese sandwich. it's where i get all my calcium. . .
DarkMorford: TehAmelie Please make sure to deposit your excess cheddar in the sharps container. Kappa
r10pez10: Whips RP?
raven534: I don't think cheese can possibly be that addictive, I don't like the stuff or crave it despite eating it occasionally
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: whips rp goods, they aren't really
niccus: oh hey plot boss now instead of act 5
MAPBoardgames: This guy's face rings a bell
kusinohki: he just might... ring your bell
niccus: he's invulnerable!
bi0buster: You were both blocking each other from killing it. xD
DarkMorford: @niccus I'm sure there's a crack in his armor somewhere.
niccus: also, yeah, swordsman is rough when you have something that hits diagonal
GamesAndInk: Final boss fight *jazz hands*
MAPBoardgames: Going, Going, Gong!
TehAmelie: hell's bells, so to speak
viridimayai: You can practice his fight in the boss pit, I recommend you know how to fight him
niccus: on the flipside, he's *much* harder with no items and just a dagger
TehAmelie: at least we don't have to fight the dead swinger
banachspacebar: Dead Ringers is also a confusingly worded Magic card
kusinohki: F F F F
noSmokeFire: cadence's voice is too close to heather's, so I keep thinking she's getting REALLY into the game
GamesAndInk: The only thing you need to know about the Dead Ringer fight is: When he starts charging you, make him charge his own gong.
bi0buster: Now it's SHARP cheddar.
noSmokeFire: yes, definitely
GamesAndInk: It costs 1 bomb to get the helmet, and it gives you 3 bombs
MAPBoardgames: a bomb near one of the traps sjhould do it
MAPBoardgames: wrong spot!
bi0buster: Nice

someusername5: close
TehAmelie: never trust the cheese
PixelArtDragon: Looks like the helmet, despite making you safe from bombs, is not itself safe from bombs
odamadillo: Why am I picturing Ian as Monterey Jack from rescue rangers now?
DarkMorford: Don't forget Sally Acorn, Ian. >_>
angryoptimist: I have nothing to add, I've just really enjoyed everything this episode of Rhythm Cafe and I wanted to say so.
CastleOtranto: @odamadillo Well now I am too. Thanks.
odamadillo: @castleotranto Would that make Heather Gadget then?
r10pez10: daguerre
DarkMorford: I think that would be Cori
noSmokeFire: dággér
CastleOtranto: @odamadillo Not gonna open that can of worms.
odamadillo: @castleotranto Can't say I blame you there.

someusername5: eat the meat
bkowalski99: heyoo
TehAmelie: TIL a theory says the big bang was a phase transition, like what happens when water vapor condenses, but it was the universal forces separating
MAPBoardgames: Isn't "doing alright" a euphemism for "going to die soon in a humorously ironic way"?
kusinohki: ian's wub step is impeccable
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @MAPBoardgames that's what it means in magic, not sure about crypt though
TehAmelie: hmm would it be possible to mod some wubstep into this game?
someusername5: you can play the game with any music out of the box
niccus: iirc there's a dubstep-style soundtrack built in, you just have to switch to it
GamesAndInk: @TehAmelie It actually has a music importer that will try to match the beat
TehAmelie: ha
niccus: i think... it's melody's default soundtrack?
