Juliamon: Paul is vital to the show.
GapFiller: well obvsly
GapFiller: there IS only one after all
kusinohki: "that is why he's paul"
NightValien28: paul is always watching and\or plotting
Creideiki_SE: Paul is everywhere and sees everything.
Foxmar320: Paul is vital to everything
TXC2: yeah?
NightValien28: we have no proof that he is not
TheMerricat: Plus, Paul is the only one they know how to clone, if necessary, so it's 'impossible' for him to be missing. :-P
kusinohki: is that what happened to all the paul clones? some grand battle royal with only 1 remaining?
TXC2: sounds like a crapshot to me
GapFiller: that does raise an interesting thought experiment re how a Highlander/Jet Li The One esque scenario works when cloning is a reality

SpikySpahgetti: inb4 turnip sweatshops irl for animal crossing
Anubis169: LOL
tenthtechpriest: big mood
Foxmar320: I might have to do that cause I play at night a lot
EvilBadman: Turnip communities has a shelf-life, people are gonna fall off Animal Crossing more and more over the next couple months
Raiz0k: Jokes aside, the myriad of "virtual" currencies is amazing right now, and this is all on the d/l pretty much by default. Amazing when you consider the regulatory panic regarding cryptocurrencies.
Ciijay: Turnip prices among friends will definitely still be alive I feel
GapFiller: what yr saying is we shd treat Kathleen like Waffle House
GapFiller: ala The Waffle House Index
Izandai: It'a 90% cut. That's not nothing.

GaelanS: fyi audio is a little out of sync for me, idk if that's my end or yours

Ciijay: Yeah this came up last week too, that was frustrating to see from a non-time traveller view :(
TXC2: 0.05 is the actual interest I'm getting now IRL :P
Raiz0k: @djalternative : game economics are basically real economics, but faster, harder, better, stronger.
TheMoatman: Well the good news is that people are learning how important compound interest
Izandai: Damn time travelers. Always ruining things for everyone.
iondream: this is surreal

Joda011980: greetings everyone
glitched_goddess: Time travelers ruin things? It’s just like real life
TheMerricat: Notice Paul doesn't agree he just metions he liked the idea. :P
raven534: Just have negative interest for backwards time travel
GapFiller: if anyones gonna invent a TARDIS itd probs be Paul
AgentMagicMaster: "Time travel is something we don't have to deal with in real life."
SpikySpahgetti: Paul invents time travel in order to play animal crossing.
Mr_Pecks_Ecology_Class: Paul Krugman wrote an essay about how time travel would irreparably break interest
EldarLuin: You mean Back to the Future 2?
Knightlyvalor: Well, there is a sketch about the people who manage your assests in the mean time... ;-)
Zaz___: resetti is back in town
TheMoatman: @TXC2 the the high interest banks are still around 1.5% so it might be worth looking into those (if you're in the US, I don't know anything about canadian banks)
Foxmar320: Oh wow
kamelion84: wow
RegulusPratus: You don't need to time travel in both directions, so cryonics will do
GapFiller: wow
DoodlestheGreat: Ooooo.... That'd be mean. I like that.
wildpeaks: that seems harsh
cuttlefishman: Benjamin Franklin put some money in accounts for the people of the city of Philadelphia, and then told people they couldn't touch it for like a few hundred years
djalternative: @Raiz0k I wrote a whole paper on how to make engaging economic gameplay
Izandai: They need to rehire Resetti.
SpikySpahgetti: Time travel= MR Resetti
kusinohki: didn't douglas adams suggest that? time travelers going to the start of banks and deposit a penny or a dollar and then go to the end of times??
Zandivya: Trading in futures anneLol
muondecay: FEC's newest enforcer: Mr. Resetti
riking27: Actually, the game does detect backwards time travel. But it doesn't do anything except set a flag in the metrics sent to Nintendo
TXC2: TheMoatman I'm an UKm'n
TStodden: That's the mechanics of Milliway's... where the principal of compound interest makes your extravagant meal affordable.
Amentur: Account closed due to inactivity?
HorusFive: See also- Futurama episode 1.4
Karfsma778: They can detect TT backwars
SpikySpahgetti: Mr. Resetti is the best part of animal crossing
LaconicLad: I haven't played EVE in a few years, but I still really enjoy reading their in-game financial reports.
Ciijay: That's why you can afford everything at the Restaurant at the end of the universe @kusinohki
GapFiller: time travel brings a whole new meaning to the idea of Futures Markets
Anubis169: Kathleen: Partially why I don't play Pokémon Go anymore, phone's wonky GPS got me banned for spoofing by moving places too quickly :D
Anubis169: like 4 times
HorusFive: Is there any way to transfer actual cash to Bells? Or back?

raven534: And in that you can time travel
lirazel64: Aren't we all time-traveling, in a sense?
Raiz0k: Our Great Leader Nook.
jaxiclus: State-controlled capitalism simulation? Should work in Chinese market
kamelion84: katesLol
SpikySpahgetti: So totaltarian simulator???
ani_laurel: Its Seven Rings
GapFiller: so just like the PRC then
NathanJay_GA: basically the story of how I got my car
RegulusPratus: Oh hey, I live by the Met, they're neat
TStodden: In New Leaf, prices could have been inflated by 25% if you chose the "Wealthy" Ordinance.
Brozard: This is such a good story
Izandai: "Ones of times."
cuttlefishman: "went to the MET double of times"
jaxiclus: Is this just you bragging about going there?
samwonk: There's also /two/ major cultural institutions in New York called the Met.
Foxmar320: omg thats so good
mtvcdm: Whoa, what?
EldarLuin: Neat!
HorusFive: @samwonk true. Nothing funnier than Opera and Modern Art groupies getting in a snob fight
Ciijay: Oh wow, that's amazing
GapFiller: awesomesauce
DandySwagg: “Ones of times” might be less accurate, but it’s funnier imo
keymaster515: I like the Met, but that means you can have Van Gogh's Starry Night!
TStodden: That painting is ALREADY in the game, IIRC.
aWabbajack: Wonder if there are Gustav Klimt arts in the game?!
Ciijay: How many of these paintings are also Redd paintings...?
Raiz0k: Because the models are symmetric?
aWabbajack: well the SFW ones
SpikySpahgetti: van gogh was basically don't pixel art before there were pixels
GaelanS: impressionism is the original pixel art and you can fight me
SpikySpahgetti: doing*
Izandai: That absolutely scans.
glitched_goddess: Do they have the artifacts? Like their Egyptian collection?
Foxmar320: Yeah that works
CAKHost: I got starry night as a painting, that was pretty good
EldarLuin: Very neat!
mtvcdm: That is shockingly reasonable.
Ciijay: I love that it's croppable too! WOW. That part is more amazing!
Ciijay: And it updates real time?!
Izandai: *gasp*
SpikySpahgetti: that pronunciation.
GDwarf: Fairly simple downscaling, but still, neat
Scy_Anide: The eye looks like a belly button
CAKHost: Oh!
WrightJustice: cgbPog
DiscordianTokkan: Oh THIS is danged good
Lithobraker: @GaelanS did can gough ever do pointalism?
SpikySpahgetti: van gouuf

Brozard: Ah, yes, that
lirazel64: Mondrian would be great in AC.
TXC2: 2been making the tears rain down like a monsoon"
EldarLuin: Yeah.
Raiz0k: Is it just me, or is Beej's audio lagging more?
wildpeaks: it's surprising that Nintendo is ok with it if people reverse-engineered it
TheMoatman: I haven't looked at what they decode to so it might just be, like, JSON or sometjomg
mowdownjoe: Nintendo? Open-sourcing stuff? HAH! Yeah, right.
TheMoatman: *something
TStodden: It was likely reversed engineered...
Foxmar320: Yeah
Raiz0k: I mean, they've been mellowing out in the last couple of years.
wildpeaks: they were extremely against such things back when people were doing cool hacks with the wiimotes back in the day

SpikySpahgetti: by like a whole 30 seconds
Graham_LRR: Probably anything in public domain
Juliamon: I would cover my home's walls with Mondrians if I could
GapFiller: Graham_LRR evening G
TXC2: hello Graham
Anubis169: Graham_LRR heyoo~~
TheMoatman: It's 627 bytes of raw binary, but It looks heavily padded
Anubis169: Paul that's a nice super-tall mug :)
TheMoatman: This probably wouldn't be too hard to reverse engineer
SpikySpahgetti: mobile is like a time machine that makes sure your always in the past
glitched_goddess: Also just things people are familiar with. I doubt people are scrambling for the Narmer Palette
Raiz0k: @Graham_LRR : copyright wise, sure. The only hurdle would be patent law.
Rivulatus_: Got to respect the whomever is in charge of public relations for them though, for both knowing that this would be cool, and being able to impliment it
GapFiller: oooh more Valorant
BrindleBoar: step one: sacrifice a goat
snowcookies: James has been enjoying it
Raiz0k: Big P there.
Izandai: heh
Dared00: Got my drop literally 40 minutes ago
GapFiller: in unrelated Valroant news apprently esports stars are jumping ship for it
jamiebgood: Effing Loot Boxes lrrEFF
aWabbajack: 24/7 offline streams!
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k nice thing about patents is they aren't automatic, you have to file to get one. And to file you have to explain it well enough that someone could replicate it....
aWabbajack: VOD / Reruns?
Anubis169: Twitch authorised this...
GapFiller: 'safely'
kusinohki: ooof, "disease vector model"
Izandai: hmmmmmmmmmmmm
mowdownjoe: Wish I was able to stay awake through yesterday's Valorant stream. Probably could've gotten a drop.
GapFiller: nice littel sly of sly hand that feeds biting there Beej
TheMerricat: @mowdownjoe I don't think the LRR account is drop enabled
glitched_goddess: I bet option 2
mowdownjoe: @TheMerricat I thought they rolled out Drops to all accounts.
aWabbajack: Overstrike
EvilBadman: Counterstrike Goverwatch may be an easier term
drcanonball: Honestly the valorant cope poachers are ruining some channels
LadyLockwood92: CS:GOverwatch might be easier
Zandivya: They waited until yesterday to do this.
Driosenth: counterwatch
Baldrash: @mowdownjoe You still needed to link a Riot account, and apparently they didn't?
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : exactly, I was just thinking about possible hurdles. But as we know, in practice, copyright law currently is a liiiiitle asymmetric in terms of enforcement.
jamiebgood: Iirc, somebody had a pirated UFC stream that pretended to be playing a UFC vidya
GapFiller: Impact Wrestling does this on their channel fwiw
Izandai: good lord
TheMerricat: @mowdownjoe the "Twitch Drop" system is opt in and anyone can get in on it, but each game campaign has it's own rules and IIRC the Valorant one requires you link your Twitch account to a Riot account, which probably hasn't been done with the 'general' LRR acount.
GapFiller: tho in their case its a little different
HorusFive: You incentivized staying "Live" constantly- of course somebody's going to do it
TheMoatman: Oh my god the QR codes are YUV420p
wildpeaks: they're incentivized to game the system
glitched_goddess: user Totally_PewDiePie_I_Swear

GapFiller: HI BEEJ
Izandai: Hi Beej! katesWave
Raiz0k: Hello!
snowcookies: hello
Anubis169: Re: The Valorant drops, couple friends who are partners complained about this, and their Twitch contacts either ignored them or told them "Just let it happen until people make a noise. There's a deal with Riot going on."
Rivulatus_: wat up Beej
djalternative: hola
jetpixi: So this is why it's been so glitchy.
ThorSokar: RPGAyaya composLurk
senshi5609: hi
Anubis169: it's seriously wetVOM
TheMoatman: No wait, I was wrong. I introduced that artifacting accidentally
Mister_Skittles: and the more you do it, the more you bubble to the top
HorusFive: Sempai Beej noticed us lrrHEART lrrBEEEJ benginLove
raven534: Glad Beej is all the way on the right just for that
GapFiller: Anubis169 That is Absolute Bullshit
Raiz0k: Or, you know, a "Reaction Stream" ;p.
TheMoatman: However, it does have an embedded image of the item
HorusFive: "Pure lowest common denominator"
I_Am_Clockwork: it's Live, so something's going to happen XD
iondream: they get a cut of the revenue generated, so...
GamesAndInk: I mean, you can't have unattended streams....
GapFiller: oyeh the pan strem
Anubis169: Yeah he got a suspension for that
glitched_goddess: Wasn’t there someone who restreamed a ufc event and pretended it was a game?
GapFiller: anyone else remember that cz I sure do
Juliamon: RIP potlid-chan
Anubis169: and the pot had post-it notes on it
TXC2: I remember that
wildpeaks: you don't have to be visible, but you have to be interacting at least
Zandivya: I think they pointed out on Dropped Frames that Twitch makes more money off of people watching reruns than supporting lower view streams anneFail

TheMoatman: So this turns into this You can see the shark
TheThromborax: Yeah you're there
Raiz0k: I only wonder when will deepfake-level videos be involved in this arms race...
Brozard: @zandivya Just like terrestrial TV unfortunately
GapFiller: it increasingly feels the approach to the rules here is not unlike the approach to the law in the PRC
TheMerricat: @TheMoatman lol
GapFiller: 'dont get caught' rather than 'dont do it'
Raithencore235: Doesn't the Magic channel play past Magic coverages?
Graham_LRR: There are also channels that do just show stuff. Like MST3K’s.
SpikySpahgetti: here is this deck thing that was prerecorded now back to the main event!
uktemperance: And Loading Ready Live is the first place this prerecorded stuff gets seen normally!
Anubis169: Yeah the Rifftrax channel
glitched_goddess: Plus CritterVision
Graham_LRR: Even Twitch’s own Presents stuff!
Anubis169: but that's a special category "Always On"
TheMerricat: Rifftrax, BobRoss, there are a number of channels that get away with it.
Raiz0k: I mean it's clear the spirit of the law is active interaction, and not playback.
EvilBadman: Let's pre-record Desert Bus Kappa
SpikySpahgetti: Live concerts aren't live if they are recorded
Anubis169: TheMerricat: Bob Ross can't exactly interact with the chat :P
LordZarano: was about to mention BobRoss
Anubis169: unless science is veeeeeery wrong
GapFiller: TheMerricat dont alot of those channels have official approval from Twitch anyway?
HorusFive: g'bless
itira: achoo!

bronsonboy511: a four-fer
GapFiller: gesundheit
TXC2: 5 sneezes make a wish
quietcat: gesundheit
SpikySpahgetti: Someone just put their mill deck down forever so she sneezed
LadyLockwood92: Gesundheit
TangleTrail: Kathleen actually sneezes "achoo" that's amazing
TheMerricat: So sad so many Kotaku folk have left this year. :(
accountmadeforants: The ultimate weapon? You mean that thing wot kept running away from Tifa trying to punch it?
EldarLuin: Chicken Cannon from Air Farce?!
glitched_goddess: Assault Shotgun
SpikySpahgetti: The chicnantor is a fun gun
excalgold: Metal Gear ?
LadyLockwood92: I mean...if it was like the gun system from say...Gunstar Heroes
BrindleBoar: METAL GEAR
SpikySpahgetti: Ultima weapon??? is that a gunblade!
MatthewDennisMTG: the whole gunsmith thing on CoD is mind-bogglingly complex
ZeroArcana: i am now the ultimate weapon TransgenderPride
HorusFive: Now- for expert opinion- correspondent Alex
TXC2: Ultima weapon, is from Ultima weapon
Raiz0k: I'm holding out for the mega-super-giga-extra-hiper-ultimate weapons.
glitched_goddess: TransgenderPride death to shinra TransgenderPride
Amentur: Saberrider coming to CoD?
Raiz0k: It's called "paint".
HorusFive: @TXC2 The one you get from Ulitma Weapon, the Ultimate WEAPON?
GapFiller: TXC2 not to be confused w/ the Ultima Materia which is NOT from Ultima Weapon
LadyLockwood92: TransgenderPride
Izandai: Huh. The gray parts of the layout are very slightly narrower–especially on the right–than the red and yellow parts.
excalgold: that's no metal gear THAT'S A GUNDAM ! *explosions*
raven534: TransgenderPride
SpikySpahgetti: i want to make a gun that fires GUNDAMS!
DoodlestheGreat: We wanna make guns from the Borderlands series!
HorusFive: PrideTrans lrrCOW
bronsonboy511: No sniper rifle shotgun. lrrFRUMP
muondecay: Aww i want to make the DecaGun
thundershot879: you have to make a gun that shoots smaller guns
Raiz0k: Everyone know the ultimate guns is a shotgung that shoots exploding swords.
EvilBadman: If I can't make the Punisher gun that shoot Knives, what the hell is the point
djalternative: a dodecagundron
Lithobraker: I want my anschutz bolt straight pull integrally suppressed pistol in subsonic 45 AC dammit
MatthewDennisMTG: to be fair, the blueprints also unlock attachments but
SpikySpahgetti: its like that scene from the simpsons where they have a shotgun in the middle and four guns attached to it like a pistol and a smg
RvLeshrac: The "esports people are jumping ship for Game XYZ" stuff is a very weird artifact, because it implies that esports aren't *actually* like sports in any meaningful way beyond the money, while the industry attempts to paint them as exactly the same. Like Jordan was a laughingstock when he tried to switch to another sport.
accountmadeforants: Merge the blueprint of a really good gun with the blueprint of a really awful gun to make a gun that outright doesn't work! :D
Izandai: Okay, not narrower on the left, but there's a noticeable line along the right side of the screen.
TStodden: Where's my Nunchuck Gun!?
TheMerricat: What was that game that Alex or Ben played where you basically duct taped more and more guns together till they filled a full third of your screen?
Anubis169: it seems to work for Fortnite with gun skins...
Lithobraker: There is literally gun design copyright issues,
RvLeshrac: Weapons *are* licensed in games now.
HorusFive: TBH- Those firearms companies spend money to be in those games as advertising
TheOtherTrevor: GunDRM or GunDAM? Or Gundam DRM
excalgold: was that enter the gungeon @TheMerricat
SpikySpahgetti: When u think of customizing guns i think of the scene from the simpsons where u got a shotgun surround by 4 other guns on metal bars
reptileviking: I want more things with weapon customization on par with Mother Gunship
Amentur: If it's not in Gungeon, I'm not interested
ZeroArcana: i assume it's a stats thing
HorusFive: Or is it the games paying the gun makers?
RvLeshrac: There's a reason the Counter-Strike guns use "alternative names."
djalternative: Gun DRM is a thing in real life actually
TheMerricat: @excalgold it was 3d, so I don't thnk so
TXC2: quad rail guns look so stupid to me :P
Aarek: @TheMerricat mothergunship?
duo7531: I want a gun that's just scopes. that's it
wildpeaks: harmonica
Juliamon: Alex has literally drawn that before
GaelanS: 3.5mm headphone jack
Creideiki_SE: All this talk about Ultimate Weapons makes me realize it's been several years since I last watched Saikano.
ThorSokar: The ZORG ZX-1 may be for you!
Lithobraker: So a Drilling.
Wolfstrike_NL: Leave it to Paul to put ina CD-rom drive
Nigouki: gun with an HD-DVD/Blu-ray combo drive
drcanonball: Sounds like something Paul would make in CH
Agnememnon: that's ridiculous no one uses physical media anymore
lord_wertornion: the blueprints are basically skins that can have parts that you have not unlocked yet for that gun and a skin. so combining blueprints gives you more options
excalgold: Calico one owns the rights to far as i know and it's super sci-fi looking
Anubis169: Juliamon: I made one in my garage before :D
TheMerricat: @Aarek I think that was it! THanks! :-)
Malazim: To me you are describing borderlands 3 Paul
lirazel64: I want Paul's dream gun now, and I don't play shooters.
wildpeaks: :D
Izandai: heh
cuttlefishman: haha
thundershot879: lol
RealitySoldier: I like it
Raiz0k: TBH that sounds less like custom skins and more like aposematism (like a peacock - "I didn't manage to get killed despite running around equipped with stuff in bright primary colors!").
SpikySpahgetti: @lirazel64 just look up the scene from the simpsons
TheThromborax: If you paint the gun blue pink and purple, will you get sued by BiNet?
GapFiller: katesLol katesLol katesLol
TheOtherTrevor: Gun colours are a spectrum
excalgold: why am i having issues watching twitch......'because you are downloading WoW silly.....'
Karfsma778: Gunder Reveals
TheMerricat: And as long as your game is focused on 'realistic' gameplay the courts have ruled that your '1st amendment rights' trump gun copyright/trademarks
lord_wertornion: a lot of camo
m00ntruther: uhh beej?
TheOtherTrevor: literally
HorusFive: Not according to some parts of this country...
Angnor33: Pinkprints
raven534: The real news is that guns and gender reveals are equally pointless
StarlitGhost: there are other genders than pink and blue, also
GapFiller: gun colours are not a binary
TXC2: if you thought Gender revels where dangerous before Kappa
Orgmastron: Oh God gun gender reveals NotLikeThis
Blade_Tiger: No you need pinkandblprints, obviously
iondream: it sounds like its for gun people, irl gun people. they are a bit crazy about building their favorite combination of weapon. they have like 30 guns
fry_dx: PrideBisexual barrSpray PrideBisexual barrSpray PrideBisexual barrSpray
SpikySpahgetti: Do guns have genders?
Scy_Anide: There's also black, and gray, and gunmetal black, and matte black, etc.
Ba_Dum_Tish: Is this gun pink or blue?
Anubis169: SpikySpahgetti: According to most dating sims, yes.
excalgold: tan and dark tan?
RealitySoldier: are prints for the pink guns technically "pinkprints"
muondecay: I thought 'Gun' was a gender
excalgold: digicam!
KSmallmoon: tre bluepirnts combining tells you were the gun Must not be blue, and where it must not be pink, and where it has to stay gunmetal?
kusinohki: are the pink guns pink-prints?
jetpixi: BLUE(pink)prints
SpikySpahgetti: Dating simpson are illogical
raven534: I want my weapons in yellow, white, purple, and black NonBinaryPride
Anubis169: haven't you ever seen the "Hello Kitty Pink Flamethrower"?
SpikySpahgetti: I meant sims
SpikySpahgetti: rip
wildpeaks: do the newer COD games still let you unlock different colors by doing challenges or is it all microtransactions now ?
RealitySoldier: @kusinohki on one wave haha

ThorSokar: AHAHAHA
ghostvalv: 🤔
LadyLockwood92: An absolute UNIT

Scy_Anide: So it's an encyclopedia
Zandivya: cohhMoney
Statist42: like a mill yen?
Ba_Dum_Tish: Its a core rule book
lirazel64: Its not a brick, it's a whole building!
EldarLuin: in yen or $
raven534: That's like 1 volume of the condensed OED
RaynMurfy: 7?
Izandai: It's gotta be more than the game.
Dared00: 1900 yen
Uzumaki15: About tree fitty
snowcookies: 100$?
iondream: 10 dollars
accountmadeforants: 20 bucks
Arium26: Shipping must be a fortune
wildpeaks: 100 ?
LocalTrey: retail 30-50?

Rivulatus_: 50-100 retaiol
m00ntruther: @Ba_Dum_Tish its the whole damn game system
wildpeaks: wow

DiscordianTokkan: 16.90?!
ZeroArcana: the shipping would be riduculous
aWabbajack: dandid69 dandid69 dandid69

tenthtechpriest: HOW
HorusFive: lrrWOW
Rivulatus_: that is so little
mowdownjoe: @incslayer Didn't he write the newest MtG Lore novel? That was a quick read.
DiscordianTokkan: OOH. It must be the cheap paper like in Manga sets
TXC2: Japan has a lot of trees right?
snowcookies: wow
drcanonball: recycled paper?
Anubis169: The shipping would be more than 16.90
aWabbajack: oh sixteen ninety
DiscordianTokkan: Like, Shonen Jump physical copies
TStodden: 2 reams + a couple of gallons of ink
LocalTrey: japan has lots of cheap paper cause of the manga industry?
Raiz0k: Nah, the paper is clearly mass-printed, so not that expensive.
accountmadeforants: Given how much they use on just about everything, paper must be real cheap in Japan.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun don't you remember they used to GIVE phone books out. Just print it in super thin paper.
incslayer: @mowdownjoe i dont know i dont read mtg lore novels
SpikySpahgetti: the treekiller
EldarLuin: So I have to get a third Amazon account? Canadian, American AND Japanese?
GapFiller: thats literally an entire dead tree there
Lithobraker: Must be super crappy paper like actual phonebooks
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : exactly!
Ba_Dum_Tish: Wowza
fry_dx: Where's the strategy guide for the strategy guide?
LaconicLad: and I was impressed with the disgaea guides.
Raiz0k: There's still lots of trees...
SpikySpahgetti: I recommend that tv tropes page
bronsonboy511: Paul is Strat-Shaming, I can read the whole guide if I want
RealitySoldier: while you were selling the turnips, i was studying the book
SpikySpahgetti: it is this trope
glitched_goddess: I remember seeing a strategy guide back in the day for The I’m sorry, I need a guide on how to person?
SpikySpahgetti: talked about here
I_Am_Clockwork: if only someone would invent the Wiki
kusinohki: 1000 page strategy guide book.... we used to call that "the manual"
Knightlyvalor: Aren't book prices not mostly arbitrary? Most of the cost is the one-time writing? So the price is: How many books can we sell at this price, how many at that price? And then estimate the highest profit?
Anubis169: bear in mind, this book is only accurate until the next DLC patch
Anubis169: x_x
EldarLuin: oh my lanta
GapFiller: I_Am_Clockwork hah
Izandai: katesLol
LadyLockwood92: @glitched_goddess I dunno, I could do with that
PixelArtDragon: Searchable PDF?
SpikySpahgetti: Wikipedia if printed would be
Lithobraker: Ah, it's like a thesis where the appendix takes up 80% of the space
jetpixi: @Ciijay Buys fish! :)
bronsonboy511: Let us Consult the Guide!
EldarLuin: that would be 20$
Izandai: OUCH
TXC2: revised edition
Izandai: too real
HorusFive: Like old comic-price-guides
Raiz0k: Reading book is nice, but I draw the line on the risk of it squishing my hand when I turn the pages....
raven534: Still under 30$
GapFiller: yeh thats the problem w/ irl books
GapFiller: they dont come w/ a ctrl+F function
EldarLuin: moar. because moar
SpikySpahgetti: Wikipedia has over 6 million articles, and that's just in the English edition. In printed form, Wikipedia has over 7,400 volumes. Each volume has 700 pages.
RealitySoldier: Now it's Animalpoint
Aarek: that university level course? economics in video games?
raven534: It doesn't cost as much as a textbook at least
TheMerricat: - Awesome new patent idea! Sell these with a small LCD screen embedded in the cover so you can type in the term you want to search for and it'll list the pages it's found on.
Manae: Yes they do, @GapFiller
Nigouki: 1,650 yen + 1,981 yen shipping, but out of stock until May 26th

SpikySpahgetti: if wikipedia were printed
PixelArtDragon: Or you... don't.
wildpeaks: you haven't met some of the people I live with then
TheMerricat: Ideally beej, ideally.....
raven534: Don't tell me whether or not I leave my table set!
HorusFive: Or they pile up in a counter until they threaten to fall over
NimrodXIV: you use plates? :D
Angnor33: You can just stack the new clean dishes on top of the dirty ones until you run out.
badpandabear: Yes I don't have 2 bows two plates and a tuperware container on my cofee table
TXC2: what monsters just leave that shit there? put it in the sink!
HorusFive: Look- it's laundry or dishes today...
PixelArtDragon glances at dishes on my desk
RegulusPratus: It's not a first-person game. You play to the camera more.
EldarLuin: YOu mean messy sink?
mowdownjoe: I'm not alone in my filth!
Ba_Dum_Tish: Yep totally no dishes on my desk Kappa
EldarLuin: Messy sink exists
CAKHost: Or a sink pre-fillled with dishes?
Nigouki: wait hold up, there TWO different giant AC guide books, one by Kadokawa and 1072 pages and another by Tokuma Shoten and 1216 pages
GapFiller: ah the benefits of a too small desk
GapFiller: no space for dishes
AtomicAlchemical: Can't put away dishes, the sink is already full
BrindleBoar: that's what mugs are for
cmdrud87: I bought something similar (but cheaper) for my first plac

PixelArtDragon: Hey, I put legos on my registry and someone even bought them for us!
AtomicAlchemical: @GapFiller No comment
TheMerricat: I buy my pots and pans from garage sales.
wildpeaks: from experience, it appears dishwashers are completely invisible for some people given the number of times I find plates and glasses in the sink that's literally 10 centimeters from the dishwasher
Rivulatus_: I just buy from restraunt whole salers, cheap kitchen stuff that is quality
SpikySpahgetti: beej the same rule goes for buying wrapping paper. Only buy it after christmas
couldntpickausername: I don't like how modern pots all have glass lids and or metal handles
ani_laurel: dang, that's good
GapFiller: dem strats
TheMerricat: @wildpeaks but I didn't know if the dishes were in there were clean or not.... :-P

EvilBadman: @cuttlefishman You're sitting on dead people, in a manner of speaking
glitched_goddess: Not like Kreygasm China
Izandai: My family has broken so many dishes...
wildpeaks: that's why a magnet that says "clean or dirty" is useful :D
LaconicLad: in 1976 my parents had a drawing I made printed on a plate with the date and my name on it. I'm still using it.
PixelArtDragon: Same thing for correlle plates- the name brand makes them sound more expensive than they actually are
Brozard: Eat your china, make your bones strong
GapFiller: couldntpickausername can we turn yr cold dead hands into plates well we're at it?
SpikySpahgetti: Graham just immediately breaks your new plates
EldarLuin: Have pre-dead people buy them for you
Akaiatana: Plates are the circles of life
muondecay: I love our nearly indestructible Fiestaware
cuttlefishman: where are the bones from?
TXC2: !addquote (Kathleen) [now] Try to buy the goods of dead people.
LRRbot: New quote #6921: "Try to buy the goods of dead people." —Kathleen [2020-04-30]
Izandai: If you can't make your own dead people goods, store-bought is fine.
SpikySpahgetti: Necromancy is cheap and afforable.
mowdownjoe: Smooth, Paul.
badpandabear: Haunted plates last longer. It's scientifically proven
snowcookies: get dead ppl to give you things
Karfsma778: @cuttlefishman Dead things
Ba_Dum_Tish: Time for AC confusion
GapFiller: nice one Paul
raven534: Baking dead people into goods? Sounds like Witch's Oven
PixelArtDragon: Apparently one of the consultants for it is a hack
tenthtechpriest: vikings are assassins now?
LocalTrey: we're all made of dead people/animals/plants and star stuff!
Spirrie: That goes for estate sales as well!
Zandivya: Lots of dead people
djalternative: Vikings vs England
wildpeaks: "sure, why not"
Raithencore235: I like Corelle, its really durable, but when it breaks... it turns into shards and slivers of glass
DoodlestheGreat: AC: We _totally_ didn't get this idea from "God of War," honest!

Amentur: Not much assassin to that trailer either
kendog61: the8bitGO jlrrFacepalm
Izandai: Well that's good.
Lithobraker: Vikings know for their subtlety
Spirrie: Vikings aren’t really good assassins
drcanonball: It hasnt been AC to me after the egypt one
Ba_Dum_Tish: Last time I cared about AC was the pirate game
HorusFive: Ah Beej- lower that bar
GapFiller: djalternative tbf The North of England is pretty much Vikings anyway
TXC2: sailing or rowing?
EldarLuin: AC has been pretty good with historical context...
Koios7: ive already locked my guess for the next game in- AC samurai during warringstates/nobunaga periods
wildpeaks: I just hope they add the history tours
Dared00: You can sail all the way to England
I_Am_Clockwork: I'm not a fan of the series continuous trend toward more and more fantastical elements
ZeroArcana: well, the pirate AC games were fairly popular ~somehow~
cuttlefishman: where are the tall buildings in scandinavia in the era?
Izandai: *jazz hands* Branding!
glitched_goddess: I hear lots of Viking bros are upset that you can be a girl Viking
TheMerricat: Assasins Creed - Wall Street Broker! :p
floki4242: that cinematic trailer was Epic
CranstonSnord: "Eric the Red... like blood"
iondream: sounds like they like money
SpikySpahgetti: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Akaiatana: Kathleen on AC and on plates: Get good sails.
NotJustAFleshWound: So how much of this game is just going to be a rowing simulator?
Drew_64: No one expects an assassin to be hiding in the middle of a bloodthirsty horde
iondream: definitely came from a brainstorming meeting
LaconicLad: Too many games have the initials AC. Just sayin'.
Lithobraker: Didn't we find out there there is actually archeological evidence for horned helmets, albeit rare?
raven534: And traded
TheMerricat: Asheron's Call is the true AC game.
GapFiller: yeh The North of England is basically all Vikings
m00ntruther: did anyone ever see the Assassin's Creed Movie?
HorusFive: Did Kathleen just threaten the Queen?
EldarLuin: Remember: Pillage BEFORE you burn
GapFiller: Jorvik eg
SpikySpahgetti: Can we get a brutally historically accurate Vikings
lord_wertornion: the trailer makes it look like that is what is happening
raven534: Ooh, you can get Feast for Odin! It's a cool viking board game
LaconicLad: @TheMerricat Yes!
RegulusPratus: Yeah, screw the King of Northumbria! He's a dingus!
CranstonSnord: Maybe Assassin's Creed will be raiding Animal Crossing islands
djalternative: That seems to be the plot from the trailer, Kathleen
Karfsma778: I wanna sail a longboat up the Seine and burn down Paris!
TehAmelie: Ethelred the Unready had it coming, you can tell that from hius name
KevinTheShark: You leave York out of this!
TXC2: m00ntruther according to the box office, no
GapFiller: theres a reason Danegeld was a thing in Albion
TheMerricat: True story there were elite Viking Guards in the Roman Empire....
LadyLockwood92: Finally
floki4242: a battle between vikings and templars does make a bit of sense
m00ntruther: lol
Lithobraker: We had better get the Vikings male eyeliner too!
Zandivya: Ancestors Legacy does the same setting as a tactical game
GapFiller: also phun phact The Normans were basically Vikings too
glitched_goddess: See how the brits like being the ones getting colonized
Dared00: From Eurogamer: "Any military location you encounter on the rivers of England is fully raidable"
Scy_Anide: Bigger, girthier, emptier!
raven534: Dammit, they could have kept the O theme going with Odin's something
GapFiller: mmm French Vikings
KevinTheShark: I think theyre aiming it towards Nordic Theology rather than "vikings"
EvilBadman: Oh it's HUGE in Odyssey
Raiz0k: @Dared00 : "Just like in the simulations."
NotJustAFleshWound: @GapFiller yep, Norman = North man
PixelArtDragon: @GapFiller Norman - men from the north (i.e. Scandinavia)
LadyLockwood92: I mean, our history is full of us getting conquered.
Invitare: Hold on, weren't English crusaders the villains in the first game too? And wasn't there a US Revolutionary War game, with the English as villains again? Is this just anti-English propogan-oh yes Ubisoft are French. That makes sense
SpikySpahgetti: back when the nordics were evil.
TheMerricat: In before Kratos meets our MC.
Foxmar320: Odyssey is way too big
m00ntruther: just give me an updated Planetside 2, Dammit
TehAmelie: i want pop culture to hurry up and catch up to the like ten years old discovery that half of viking sailors were women. . .
Raiz0k: Ah, that's the sandbox inflation Yahtzee keeps complaining about.
HorusFive: HUGE Tracts of LAND
snowcookies: Just Deserts
wildpeaks: I was quite fond of MATN's stream of Oddysey because he always had anecdotes from this time period as he has a history degree
Scy_Anide: Yeah I don't want accuracy, especially with vikings...
I_Am_Clockwork: ah the old Elderscrolls 2: Daggerfall problem
Ba_Dum_Tish: That sounds like a man who tried
LadyLockwood92: There's a Chocobo in there somewhere
SpikySpahgetti: Welcome to the void!
r_craddz: There were God Battles that appeared monthly
KevinTheShark: I think its a 1 to 100 scale model of Greece
HorusFive: Ah, Realism. That's what you gamers want, right?
Izandai: Not even a korok? Lame.
Phothrism: In Australia there kinda is a big rock in the middle?
mtvcdm: I wonder what appeal there would be behind hours and hours of desert with nothing in it. Certainly we never would play anything like that.
raven534: Oases are cool (relatively)
Akaiatana: Origin extra zones are dune-a-thing enchantments
snowcookies: But what if you dig down and find a mineshaft?
kusinohki: crashed escape pod with some leftover droid parts...
floki4242: Must bring glory to ancestors in video games
Izandai: @mtvcdm It's about the Journey, not the destination!
Raiz0k: "Not just."
PixelArtDragon: @I_Am_Clockwork What do you mean, that land is all procedurally generated and therefore interesting Kappa
Knightlyvalor: HorusFive yes, that is why we play Desert bus. :-P
Raiz0k: It's OK Paul, no sham in admitting it.
Raiz0k: *shame
WonderfulGlory: Seems like it's a dev area for adding extra stuff, and they just left it there to pad out space
HorusFive: @Knightlyvalor lrrAWESOME
r_craddz: Alot of sailing in oddysey as its the greek islands

Scy_Anide: The full version is still on Steam, they just pulled the demo it looks like.
Izandai: oh good
PixelArtDragon: Wasn't this basically how Halo 1 cracks were made?
glitched_goddess: Well that seems like an oversight lol
GapFiller: couldntpickausername was thinking of that
GapFiller: how is Trials different from Collection?
EvilBadman: Trials is 3d in the remake
Izandai: wow fuck that

EvilBadman: Pretty sure the announced the Trials remake and the Collection at the same time
shamrocksheik: nice trolling Paul

Izandai: Fortnite also does that.
Akaiatana: Sounds like Stadia bot the farm
ContingentCat: Maybe it was my charitable reading of the practice but I thought it was more about giving you a chance to learn how to play it than helping your feelings.
CranstonSnord: Leeroy Jenkins bot
bronsonboy511: Thats just victory with extra steps
GapFiller: iirc Paul x Beej were both in that ScruBG strem way back when
Raiz0k: TBH, I'm okay about that, because lots of people don't have top-tier Internet connections, but the players should be informed.
glitched_goddess: Well I mean, Stadia
PixelArtDragon: So these are machine-learning AI!
Izandai: That sounds kind of amazing.
LocalTrey: saw something a month or so ago of small games pretending to be multiplayer games but are actually single player
wildpeaks: oh so the bots were trained using my playing style then :D
bronsonboy511: New Gambling
ZeroArcana: ah, they based their programming off my playstyle
AtomicAlchemical: "The AI is terrible and somehow I'm worse"
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : that doesn't sound like neither "ML", nor "AI", at all xD.
bronsonboy511: It is like horse race gambling, but Esports
Izandai: katesLol
Izandai: wow
Pteraspidomorphi: Rocket League adds bots after like 10 seconds, it's terrible
Raiz0k: Ah yes, full circle into economy stuff again.
GapFiller: also other takeaway here is man people are NOT playing PUBG
GapFiller: the player base is TANKED
bronsonboy511: Sneak 100
Gekyouryuu: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:21:54.
PixelArtDragon: Isn't this exactly the multiplayer in one of the AC games?
TehAmelie: will we ever get bots with as much personality and variance in skill as the ones in Quake 3?
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> You asked us questions, so Graham, Paul, and James sat down to answer them. Talks about who does what at LRR, some history on how LRR got started streaming, and at one point James claims to be a time traveller. | ||
EldarLuin: that's kinda awesome
Izandai: @GapFiller Not on Stadia, anyway.
CAKHost: Oh no, people are using the system against them!
Gekyouryuu: gee, twitch, thanks for telling me. -_-
LordZarano: Turing test
Brozard: Oh, so like SpyParty
Arium26: @Pteraspidomorphi Not in ranked though, it just keeps the games rolling. Been stuck searching for minutes before, less fun than bots.
Raiz0k: In BF2 (remember that) I've had quite a bit of fun running head first into hostile players with a medkit, and then stabbing them from behind.
Pteraspidomorphi: I'd rather wait minutes
Ba_Dum_Tish: Stadia itself is the problem
GapFiller: also PUBG is dying too
Dared00: It's free for Stadia Pro users
Pteraspidomorphi: Than be grouped with 2 bots against a party of 3 experienced players
Izandai: @GapFiller On what grounds?
GapFiller: people are still playing it obvs but its nowhere near what it previously was
GapFiller: see also Destiny 2
Raiz0k: The perennial corporate arse covering.
Izandai: So it's dying in the way Minecraft is dying.
Izandai: Gotcha.
snowcookies: beep boop
accountmadeforants: "Who can say?" -"YOU can say!"
glitched_goddess: I think a stadia costs more than a pubg license
Arium26: Maybe look into 3v3 solo ranked then
TehAmelie: all the news that's fit to stream?

DigitalSeahorse: :O
DigitalSeahorse: dammit twitch now I can't use the faces I like cause they're all overridden with purple
DigitalSeahorse: >(
Juliamon: Huh, did they remove the option to choose your emote set?
Earthenone: :o
Raiz0k: Are they :)?
seth_erickson: there are non purple ones :O
DigitalSeahorse: >( :| O_o
seth_erickson: :)
DigitalSeahorse: I clicked on the white ones just now
Raiz0k: Wait, what :/.
Raiz0k: Oh, OK, that works.
DigitalSeahorse: :\
DigitalSeahorse: just me?
Earthenone: i type them, not click them, maybe thats it?
LordZarano: check check ;)
DigitalSeahorse: hmmm
seth_erickson: seems like maybe there's an option to change it in your account settings
Raiz0k: I think the trick is skipping a space ahead of the next sentence. Or... it could be some new default.
DigitalSeahorse: nope I typed this :/
Raiz0k: :/
Juliamon: Check your settings, yeah
Juliamon: For me it's under the Twitch Prime settings
accountmadeforants: :7
LordZarano: if you have twitch prime then there should be an option for it yeah
DigitalSeahorse: I don't
Raiz0k: Neither do I, and it just works here....
Raiz0k: Could be just a SNAFU on the side of Twitch.
LordZarano: It was originally a Twitch Turbo thing
Juliamon: Personally I like the purple ones best anyway
accountmadeforants: Yeah, the purple ones are the best. Though the monkey ones have the most variants. Decisions, decisions...
Juliamon: I hate monkeys, so those aren't even a consideration for me
Raiz0k: So none are LRR-inherent?
Juliamon: I have no idea if channels can choose default sets
Raiz0k: (sorry, had a bit of a skip before I came back to chat)
Juliamon: #notastreamer
