jonnykefka: When it first came out I remember the MegaTen subreddit going to the FE subreddit and being like "WHAT IS THIS IDOL NONSENSE" and the FE subreddit responding "WE THOUGHT IT WAS YOU" and then everyone discovering that the game was actually really good
NoNane09: F for saving
ghostvalv: oh no
asthanius: Hoisted
Orgmastron: F
red_shoes_jeff: F
PharaohBender27: f
ArcOfTheConclave: Did Kathleen not save at the end of last stream?
LadyLockwood92: Hey folks~
TXC2: Hello LadyLockwood92 welcome
MidgardSerpent: I remember you doing this last time, but caan't recall if you saved or not afterwards.
Leonhart321: And we can hit up the real place to care about in Shibuya, legally Distinct Tower Records
odamadillo: Hey LadyLockwood
AmberLampLight: Is game audio a little loud for anyone else?
LadyLockwood92: Ah, time for some Animes
jonnykefka: there's always the "Quick session" button
SeiichiSin: A little?
vespa_amazonia: what's up this battle music is great
Orgmastron: Yeah game audio is quite loud
PMAvers: Ah yes, the Barry Goodman Power Hour
jonnykefka: the battle music is so good
Graham_LRR: Yeah, game audio could turn down a bit
SeiichiSin: Doing good, just doing some writing for my D&D stuffs.
sir_jack_DB: p good, fixed my car
TXC2: Hi Graham
snowcookies: doing fine
GapFiller: Graham_LRR evening G
mowdownjoe: Let me tell you... you'll be thankful for Quick Session once you start getting more party members.
Graham_LRR: I mean, I’m doing well!
The_Quiet_Alestain: Doing well.
red_shoes_jeff: 69 damage. Nice.
AmberLampLight: that's better!
MidgardSerpent: doing well, all things considered.
newstous: Alright, taking a break from virtual finals
Leonhart321: Good, upgraded some kitchen tools for some better coffee/Matcha making
Mcgwee: a ok
LadyLockwood92: I'm good, playing D&D tomorrow, gonna have some dinner in a bit~
Orgmastron: That's better
cuzuki: doing just swell. doing some daily chores on FFXIV while I watch.
DarkMorford: Not too bad here. Thinking about grilling burgers for lunch, playing Animal Crossing.
SeiichiSin: Hello Graham!
Commander_Pulsar: Doing okay. Errands, laundry, work.
snowcookies: does the game not warn you to save before quitting?
Firnsarwen: doing well, had a good morning with fresh coffee, cinnamon bun and eggs, with a chill James stream! LuvBlush
LadyLockwood92: Also hi Graham~ lrrHEART
Graham_LRR: I’m sure chat can helpfully remind you to save at the end of the show lrrGRAHAM
odamadillo: Hello Graham! And Today I am fine. Not as good as I was yesterday but that is to be expected
Lordofironstorm: Hello all!
drfox17: K's just giving us a "previously on Kathleen Saves the World"
Leonhart321: Graham's clearly feeling sassy today Kappa
Firnsarwen: hiya @Lordofironstorm sergeHi
mowdownjoe: @Graham_LRR You know from experience, huh?
PharaohBender27: OK, all things considered.
newstous: Oh, hi Graham
SeiichiSin: So much Animal Crossing.
Lordofironstorm: I am ready for my tri-weekly dose of anime games!
coelopteryx: you cannot fathom the extent of how helpful chat will be about reminders to save (actually you can fathom it all too well)
TXC2: coelopteryx far too well
coelopteryx: indeed
jonnykefka: the game never reminds you to save.
Lordofironstorm: I just noticed that the moves all have Artist names like it's a song they wrote
LadyLockwood92: Could be worse, could be right back at the start
noSmokeFire: @Lordofironstorm beats by Dre
DarkMorford: @Lordofironstorm This game is nothing if not brand-consistent. :P
jonnykefka: The aesthetic is very thought through
red_shoes_jeff: [7 missed calls]
Leonhart321: Thou hast obtained the Wheel. of Fortune arcana and obtained the microphone of anime
jonnykefka: left side crosswalk
gualdhar: across the street from you
LadyLockwood92: She is a genius.
PharaohBender27: Seems fine on my end
AmberLampLight: game audio is better now, thanks!
mowdownjoe: Oh... this guy...
jonnykefka: the VA legit composed some of the songs in this game
accountmadeforants: THAT STANCE...
Leonhart321: We Jojo now?
LadyLockwood92: How pleasant.
gualdhar: he isn't the Megadeth guy at all
Dared00: Barry Goodman.
odamadillo: If he greeted me like that I'd punch him.
Wicker_Knight: o____-
Gladuir: Oh no, I love him.
sir_jack_DB: Barry Goodman is a very goodman
accountmadeforants: Very good, man.
Lordofironstorm: So this is the guy commenting "3/10 elbows too pointy" on your girlfriend's facebook pics
BusTed: benginWat
SeiichiSin: Yes, accurate.
Mcgwee: lrrSIGNAL wdeb alarm lrrSIGNAL
TXC2: Barry Goodman is a gameshow host name :p
Ritaspirithntr: Ah Barry!
LadyLockwood92: Names that are definitely made up, and not in a bad way
Leonhart321: 4/10, not enough posing
red_shoes_jeff: "... I've changed my mind about saving the world."
LadyLockwood92: His posing needs to be more Dynamic.
DarkMorford: I love that they let Nakamura Yuuichi just go lrrHAM with this character. So many roles I've seen him in, he's very down-to-earth, kinda stoic.
Ritaspirithntr: Yes! Tsubasa knows practically everyone!
drfox17: @PharaohBender27 Wait, we forgot! we need to change the glasses settings!
kvetchnik: Why is english speaking people always named Goodman in Japanese stuff? Also, the background music is giving me epilepsy
Pteraspidomorphi: He's right there next to you!
Pteraspidomorphi: He can hear you!
Traion: Hey K, hey Chat
drfox17: We need new glasses!
LadyLockwood92: Oof
LordShadner: lrrCOW
PharaohBender27: @drfox17 Whatever do you mean?
drfox17: New glasses every session!
ghostvalv: :/
Leonhart321: Wow, rude
northos: lrrWOW
Traion: Lookin great today
LadyLockwood92: Charming
ArcOfTheConclave: We just witnessed a murder
Lordofironstorm: D:
asthanius: @kvetchnik Because plenty of writers love looking for names that mean things, and Good Man is a fairly obvious one to go for
kvetchnik: Ah, true
iris_of_ether: HE'S NOT EVEN...AUGH
asthanius: Yeah he's built like a football player
Pteraspidomorphi: He looks more buff than anything else
Traion: I do love the roots showing through on Barry
LadyLockwood92: I mean...he's Thicc, but he looks more Beefy.
Wicker_Knight: it is what it is
kvetchnik: Also the "that is so in the forgotten past" said by 25-something characters Japanese cliché
Leonhart321: I mean, the food is really good out there. If it wasn't for all the walking, I'd probably had added a little weight on
Lordofironstorm: I am digging his use of Engrish randomly in his sentences
LadyLockwood92: Atlus has a real problem with treating bigger folks with respect.
GapFiller: tbf this is one of those things where Japan in general is not as progressive as we The Enlightened West wd wish
kvetchnik: His power level is over 9000!
LadyLockwood92: Ah...of course...
Lordofironstorm: @LadyLockwood92 Atlus has a problem with treating a lot of kinds of people with respect
Wicker_Knight: dattebayo.
LadyLockwood92: @lordofironstorm Trust me, I know.
Ritaspirithntr: Gotta get that sweet prerelease specials!!
Wicker_Knight hides behind the 4th wall
DarkMorford: This guy is so much fun.
Pteraspidomorphi: Priorities!
PharaohBender27 hides with @Wicker_Knight
LadyLockwood92: Okay...Barry, you're at a 35, we need you down at about 7
TehAmelie: ah, how goes the great game in a troubling package?
TXC2: it goes
Ritaspirithntr: @darkmorford i didn’t like him until his duet with Mamorin!!
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie We just had a "troubling package" moment a few moments ago :/
kvetchnik: Jesus, I'm getting stress exema from the background music, especially combined with the slow dialogue :-D Not for me, have a great time everybodies
TehAmelie: "great game with a troubling package" wait that's me hoho trans humor
LadyLockwood92: Ha ha...Idols are extremely overworked and the business is incredibly toxic.
Lordofironstorm: I want to watch whatever anime is on his shirt
thebumblingbagofbogusluck: His build reminds me of a Football lineman. There are plenty of athletes who need to have some bulk in addition to muscle in order to perform well.
Petaaaaaaaaaaaa: Lametage
Leonhart321: Also, it should be set to 80s power rock
PharaohBender27: @kvetchnik katesWave
jonnykefka: @Lordofironstorm keep watching, you at least get the theme song
vespa_amazonia: @TehAmelie nice
SquareDotCube: Someone on the dev team didn't watch 80s movies for reference
NoNane09: this section makes me kinda upset. Barry reminds me of the worst instructors I've had.
LadyLockwood92: This is really kind of uncomfortable.
GDwarf: It's literally her *first day*, c'mon.
DarkMorford: @Ritaspirithntr I just like how out there and goofy he is. And as I mentioned earlier, it's kind of unusual for his voice actor to really go lrrHAM in a role. A lot of his characters are very low-key and sorta stoic.
Dared00: more like Barry Badman
Pteraspidomorphi: Well she did insult the drill sergeant
GDwarf: Maybe ensure she's got the basics and then build on them?
TXC2: this is what the industry is really like though
LadyLockwood92: She's been an Entertainer for *Five* minutes!
Leonhart321: Welcome to showbiz kid. You suck and I hate your attitude. So shut up and learn your patterns and cues
LadyLockwood92: The only reason they're even Idols is to help your clownshoes operation!
Commander_Pulsar: Being a professional also involves dealing with people like this. Usually by telling them to get in the sea...
red_shoes_jeff: "I didn't even START yet!"
LadyLockwood92: Goddamn it Itsuki, grow a goddamn spine!
NoNane09: Itsuki: Uhhhh, I'm just here to kill demons.
Gladuir: Hey, hey Barry, maybe you should retire since your training methods sound like they are from the 1950s.
GapFiller: TXC2 phunnily enough the idol industry now is arguably marginally better than it used to be
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
mowdownjoe: Anime was a mistake.
GDwarf: The problem with "the industry is just like this", is that they leave out other parts of the industry, and we're supposed to *like* Barry.
LadyLockwood92: I don't like Barry.
Leonhart321: Or teaching someone.... wait
odamadillo: Is this guy Beej?
dastar512: pieAnime
ArcOfTheConclave: Is Barry's Hair dyed?
LadyLockwood92: No, Beej is nice.
GapFiller: GapFiller still not great obvs but eh small steps
TehAmelie: showbidniss? hmm do we get an option to stop dealing with abusive executives and just go Bandcamp?
PharaohBender27: @odamadillo Pretty sure lrrBEEEJ would be a much more supportive instructor
GapFiller: TehAmelie HA
Leonhart321: No, he just sucks as a teacher
TXC2: GDwarf oh indeed
Traion: @arcoftheconclave yes you can see his roots come through
Gladuir: Tsubasa ,sweetie no
Baneat: That 'gaijin' accent is nails on a chalkboard
PharaohBender27: In fact, I know so, because of that Panalysts Loading Time
odamadillo: Yeah you are probably right about that Pharaoh.
thirsty_kitteh: How is the Persona-male-gaze-music-idol-tactical-combat-Embelem going?
DarkMorford: I think Barry's supposed to be doing the "tough love" routine, but they maybe went a little overboard with it.
LadyLockwood92: I think he's just a jerk.
malsareus: this idol stuff is just a means to an end
Traion: This hairstyle and glasses are new in the Switch version right?
TXC2: the glasses are at least
malsareus: She also has a clearer motivation as our protag does
Pteraspidomorphi: The glasses are optional
Lordofironstorm: "My sister was trapped in an abusive, exploitative industry and I will follow in her footsteps, dammit!"
Leonhart321: So far, the only character I've liked is our Den-O expy studio friend
TehAmelie: by the way is there an easy way to explain how this title related to Atlus's other stuff to someone who hasn't played any of it? it's backwards SMT and Fire Emblem but sharper?
malsareus: Like, why are *we* doing all this?
DarkMorford: Unrelated, I am *loving* her hairclip. (Fun fact, "tsubasa" means "wing".)
LadyLockwood92: To fight Monsters!
Ritaspirithntr: People who are usually percieved as being incredibly strict are more often than not people who care about their work and what they do.
NojhLivic: malsareus To support Tsubasa mostly, and save the world, I think?
GDwarf: Hairstyle is the same, glasses are new
TXC2: TehAmelie it's SMT but your summons are FE characters
thirsty_kitteh: I think we are because we were told too and we're took soft to say no @malsareus
Orgmastron: @malsareus Because plot
Traion: @tehamelie Persona with less of the day to day stuff
TXC2: "help"
GDwarf: Ritaspirithntr I mean, maybe, but that's not the same thing as being a good teacher
LadyLockwood92: And a lot more abuse.
Wicker_Knight: @malsareus when in doubt, assume audience is the hidden will of MC, in which case, well, what do you think the game believes the audience wants *waves hands*
MalBeam: wait, are we a co-ed idol group?
Orgmastron: ^
NoNane09: This isn't an SMT game. ...yet.
red_shoes_jeff: It was more like, "Hey, wanna job?"
LadyLockwood92: They recruited Itsuki because he was there and he had Chrom with him
Leonhart321: And instead of letting you train at a gym or getting a specialist, we forcing you into singing lessons
Ritaspirithntr: People said that about my band teacher a bunch, but she’s a nice person. She wanted us to play it properly so that i came out the best way as possible! The training their going through at least pays off in the end!
malsareus: Lady, you have magial powers
Pteraspidomorphi: Do we all get to watch the anime?
Lordofironstorm: "Anyway, let's go watch some Madoka Magica to unwind"
Wicker_Knight: also Tsubasa's attempts at flirting are about as subtle as throwing bricks
Leonhart321: Tsubasa, you talking smack to guys who. like Madoka or Sailor Moon?
NoNane09: "signed" is a strong word for how this happened.
DarkMorford: @Wicker_Knight And the boy *still* doesn't get it!
LadyLockwood92: Hey kid! You wanna join an incredibly abusive and exploitative industry?
GDwarf: Ritaspirithntr There's also a difference between exacting standards and *insulting your students*.
GapFiller: it shd be noted mixed idol gruppes are actually pretty rare in the general case
NojhLivic: And our ability to see the flirting is about as clear as mud
Wicker_Knight: @LadyLockwood92 we'll pay you pennies :D
DarkMorford: Kiria lrrHEART
NoNane09: Saved!
thirsty_kitteh: Kiria! katesHug2
GapFiller: GDwarf sounds like wrestling esp the Old School mentality
Lordofironstorm: I fell like that jacket could use a couple more buttons
ArcOfTheConclave: does Idol talent help with the shonen fighting?
BoblinTheGoblin69: yes
Orgmastron: Yes actually
NojhLivic: Nah. Jacket needs more belts.
Traion: Good thing Tsubasa isn't here. She might take samples for her Kiria skin doll
northos: @Lordofironstorm definitely a few more zippers too
LadyLockwood92: Apparently.

NoNane09: That's NOT a good way to do that job!
Ritaspirithntr: @gdwarf well unfortunately, insults are used as a means of motivation. Sometime it works sometimes it doesn’t. It depends on one conviction!
TXC2: needs more pockets too Kappa
Lordofironstorm: I love the character design in this game, though
malsareus: getting mad for money.... NOT taking that job
Ritaspirithntr: And perceptions
malsareus: that sounds like shitty work
Lordofironstorm: Did Nomura guest-design her jacket?
Leonhart321: No?
red_shoes_jeff: "Nope"
GapFiller: Lordofironstorm not enough unecessary zips and belts
GDwarf: Ritaspirithntr I'm going to fundamentally disagree
NojhLivic: Yes. Singers sing songs using words. Good job Kiria.
Leonhart321: Because no-one taught her?
LadyLockwood92: @ritaspirithntr That's really not good, there's a huge difference between constructive criticism and insulting someone.
TXC2: no, Babies cry to get attention
jonasjonIV: he's trying....
skyrider19: Not exactly Itsuki...
Diabore: throw a brick at him
NoNane09: paging r/whoosh'
Lordofironstorm: Ohhhh Itsuki...No
PharaohBender27 facepalms
GDwarf: Itsuki is both bland and clueless. Fairly standard anime protag these days, alas.
jonnykefka: Kiria is just the best person in this game.
DarkMorford: Whooooo! We get to go to an idol concert!
red_shoes_jeff: Itsuki.... God DAMN it, Itsuki...
malsareus: Look <iria, this boy is very dense, I suggest writing it down using short words
LadyLockwood92: I wish Touma was the main character.
Wicker_Knight: Yeah itsuki is very "we need to make this guy a complete chump in dialogue otherwise we're worried he'll come across as a manipulative creep"
Ritaspirithntr: @gdwarf @ladylockwood92 that’s your opinion and that’s fine and all. Nothing wrong with it. You are right, but everyone works differently. So i understand where you’re coming from, but i also understand where they’re coming from.
GDwarf: I assume he knows what a concert is, he's just surprised. :P
Orgmastron: It really is
malsareus: apply several more editing passes
jonnykefka: Part of it is, in JP, she's using English as slang, and there's an implication he might not know the word
NojhLivic: Maybe we're also trying to characterize Kiria as a deep philsophical character?
noSmokeFire: but we couldn't use him as an audience surrogate if he had the sense of a brick
TXC2: you say lazy writing, I say paid by the word Kappa
GapFiller: KAthleen yr say lazy writing I say long and venerable tradition of lazy writing stemming from Visual Novels especially
Leonhart321: Oh, we crossed the lazy writing thing back at the idol host expo dumping in front of a whole crowd
noSmokeFire: I know a lot of dumb creeps
SeiichiSin: I agree. That isn't the fix.
GDwarf: Generic protagonist writing isn't to try and not make them a creep, it's an attempt to make them bland and easy to do a self-insert for.
Orgmastron: Honestly Tsubasa should have been the main character
Lordofironstorm: ^
GDwarf: And yeah, Tsubasa should be the MC
noSmokeFire: Tsubasa has a motivation *and* a personality
NojhLivic: Tusbasa /is/ the main character of the narrative... but we have the player insert character riding alongside.
GDwarf: Itsuki doesn't *contribute* anything to the plot that Tsubasa couldn't.
Wicker_Knight: yeah but tsubasa as MC would have her spend less time in front of camera
angryoptimist: You are a writer, though--just not of this format of content.
DarkMorford: @jonnykefka I mean, yes, but it's not so much "slang," really. The idol/entertainment industry uses a *lot* of English terminology as a regular thing.
angryoptimist: And a certain amount of that must surely transfer.
LadyLockwood92: The only reason Itsuki gets to be the main character is presumably because they didn't want a female protag.
thirsty_kitteh: If this was the Now Kiss, this would be the moment where I would be rooting for Tsubasa / Kiria
Wicker_Knight: do that anyway
Lordofironstorm: Is that Plue?
TXC2: that is a huge emote
Orgmastron: Don't let that stop you @thirsty_kitteh
LadyLockwood92: I...really wish Tsubasa wasn't in this Idol game.
Leonhart321: Wow, that's some whiplash
NoNane09: @Kathleen it's part of the longstanding JRPG tradition of TERRIBLE operational security.
QuantumTwitch: Yea writing is suprisingly hard. Its hard to convey a good conversiation
karmakamikaze: Not to be confused with "Civ Live" where people wage war over a small island while LARPing as world leaders.
thirsty_kitteh: @NoNane09 Isn't that just media in general? I have a whole list of movies that just wouldn't happen if there was an Ops/OpSec department
thirsty_kitteh: @Orgmastron ~~ <3
TheSilent_R: I cant even have a good conversation in real life. How on earth am I supposed to write one
accountmadeforants: I'd give it a 50/50 on him somehow losing the ticket, and that becoming a plot point/side quest.
mowdownjoe: Having played this game, I do wonder what the point of Itsuki as a character. Just an empty vessel in the tradition of JRPG empty vessels when the whole story revolves around his best friend.
Orgmastron: Dress up time!
vespa_amazonia: VERY important
NamesAreSilly: Ok, did the chat dialogue have a different writer? Because that flowed a lot more naturally than any spoken dialogue so far...
ArcOfTheConclave: inb4 something bad will happen at the concert.
DarkMorford: Fashion Persona!
Lordofironstorm: Fashion SOuls is the endgame
jonnykefka: this is essential. Especially because some of their default costumes are AWFUL
GDwarf: mowdownjoe: I mean, yeah, that's pretty much his point
TXC2: NamesAreSilly probably
NoNane09: @thirsty_kitteh yeah, but Persona 5 in particular features some... questionable OpSec decisions, even for teenagers.
gualdhar: Tsubasa must stay as Horse-faced girl
SeiichiSin: Ooooh, outfits! All I need to know is when do we get the silly outfits.
Arazien: Oh man I love this absurd game
red_shoes_jeff: You could do a lot worse than charging into battle in your gym clothes.
Wicker_Knight: @mowdownjoe I mean, he's an audience point of view character. He's there to help viewers receive necessary exposition and to provide framing and context.
Wicker_Knight: that's not in itself a terrible thing, albeit it's kind of an easy way out for handling a situation the player is assumed not to be familiar with
Lordofironstorm: Sorry Tsubasa, I have a date with Jack Frost
Arazien: Sorry Tsubasa, we don't give a hee ho about you right now
SeiichiSin: I think you saved after getting the items.
mowdownjoe: You get so much money in this game, that at some point it becomes obvious they did that for the Fashion Souls element. (But I did like the Joker costume Itsuki gets.)
Mr_Horrible: I like that we're still using the crosswalk even tho there's massive crowds of people blocking the streets
NoNane09: I wish Itsuki would at some point just come out and say, "I'm only here to kill demons!"
TXC2: Running is for closers Kappa
gualdhar: wait, there's a run button? where?
LordShadner: and 5 curry
malsareus: I propose a roller blade button
SeiichiSin: Yeah, you were doing the tour and then went to the dungeon. And saved going into the dungeon.
MidgardSerpent: yeah, I think those curries are the rewards you gut for the lottery things.
LadyLockwood92: @nonane09 That'd require him to have some kind of personality
Wicker_Knight: so when does Emma get to become an idol?
TXC2: wow a lot of people are trying to hail a cab Kappa
GapFiller: eyyy moar faceless extras
Lordofironstorm: Excuse me, they are CONSTRUCTION PAPER cutouts!
red_shoes_jeff: @NoNane09 Pretty sure the boss said singing makes you a better demon-fighter, or somesuch.
Commander_Pulsar: Fighting in inexpensive, casual clothes makes sense. If I were a superhero, I think I'd try to fight in sweatpants & a t-shirt I didn't really care about. You're going to get blood, concrete dust, dirt, etc. on them, they're going to get ripped, burned....
Leonhart321: These cutouts are practically crinkling with anticipation
ArcOfTheConclave: inb4 hatanaka is evil
GapFiller: mebbe its just me but being used to anonymous extras being plain white outlines even amazing technicolour outlines seems extravagant
Dared00: woo
Arazien: Listen to those cutouts cheer
red_shoes_jeff: Wooo
GapFiller: [cheering noises]
BlueDaNewb: wooo
NoNane09: @red_shoes_jeff she did, but also, like, why not give Itsuki some specialized training for that? like, I dunno, basic tactics training?
GDwarf: Now we get a physically impossible concert
Lordofironstorm: Anime cutscene time!
SniHjen: Hey there
TXC2: anime time
Dared00: KOWASHITAI
Arazien: It's the good song!
accountmadeforants: It reminds me of that bit in the new Pokémon where they do the "throwing a rock concert to save the world/distract people!" thing, except... there's no singing, or rock music, we're just supposed to imagine it.
vespa_amazonia: oh there it is!
DarkMorford: KIRIA lrrHEART
jonnykefka: I wonder if this will demonetize the VOD
Ritaspirithntr: Now for one of my fav songs!!
GDwarf: She appears to have cast meteor on the 109 building. I hope their insurance is good.
malsareus: I think the bright color of the cot outs were a mistake, the make them look like craft paper things, greyscale probably would've worked better
karmakamikaze: Oh, this song is great.
LadyLockwood92: There's gotta be *so* much tape holding that top up.
Lordofironstorm: That's quite a corset
angryoptimist: Anyone wanna guess at the over/under that this is crashed by monsters or is just a learning experience for the heroes about performances?
GDwarf: Antigrav tech!
jonasjonIV: levitation. cool.
TXC2: MAGNETS!
vespa_amazonia: the craft paper look is great for the extras imo
Arazien: [Memories of Matt & Woolie]
NoNane09: so, uhh, how is the floating happening?
NojhLivic: Man. Kinda wish we had these level of special effects. Holographic AR would revolutionize everything.
SajuukSjet: Magnets!
vespa_amazonia: the power of music?
malsareus: ok, flying saucer, why aren't we in space right now?
jonasjonIV: the same tech used ot keep her bras on?
Wicker_Knight: no, extensions
ancientspark: Spontaneous daylight for singing always happens
vespa_amazonia: well now i wanna play FFX-2
jonnykefka: Yeah, I love how all the concert FX are just...a little more advanced than we could make right now, but doesn't feel super far off
angryoptimist: She usually keeps it in a braid, does that shorten it at all?
Lordofironstorm: @drfox17 She had it up in a french braid with a knot at the end
TXC2: jonasjonIV that's just double sided tape
ArcOfTheConclave: I live Tsubasa
Commander_Pulsar: Wouldn't the crowd just see the bottom of that disk for most of the song?
drfox17: ooooh
LadyLockwood92: Yep, they're definitely gonna end up just friends...I know Atlus too well.
Leonhart321: Itsuki, don't pretend you were listening to the music Kappa
NojhLivic: I find it interesting how often we go into first-person conversations.
angryoptimist: That's... a good point, Commander_Pulsar
bennguyen200: Hi
malsareus: ah if only the MC could have this much character and motivation
uroboros_of_old: Morning all
NojhLivic: hi uroboros_of_old
TXC2: Hello bennguyen200 and uroboros_of_old welcome
SniHjen: "Eirin! Eirin! Help me Eirin!"
Lithobraker: just came in, those must be the new version of Sully's aluminum tit holsters to have any support
accountmadeforants: malsareus In a JRPG? Surely you jest.
LadyLockwood92: Barry is a sack of shit...
NoNane09: "Tsubasa, I *really* need you focused right now, because my plot alarms are all going off very, very loudly."
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker lrrWOW
TXC2: the crowd is super chanting "Kira" as in the character from Death note
Arazien: Barry is an absolute mess
angryoptimist: Aluminum what?
Wicker_Knight: Please note: Barry almost made this person quit the industry before starting
Leonhart321: She's high energy pop, you'd be soft ballads. You're not even competing
jonasjonIV: Maybe Itsuki has severe brain damage from the fights. Amybe that's why he gets so oblivious.
skyrider19: aw, I missed the music video. Thanks comcast for such reliable service...
Traion: If they'd spend 10% of the jiggle budget on making Tusbasa's necklace move this game would look amazing
angryoptimist: Technically, Barry gave the "shape up or ship out" speech.
SniHjen: Orb Get
LadyLockwood92: In this JRPG we *love* and *support* our Party Members!
Lordofironstorm: SOcial Link Rank Up?
red_shoes_jeff: Because anime, Kathleen.
LadyLockwood92: Because Anime was a mistake!
thirsty_kitteh: Because of people like me, Kathleen, becuase of people like me. I'm sorry :(
gualdhar: especially because she's really only 13 or something, those knockers are gigantic
NojhLivic: I am thou
jonasjonIV: Tsubasa will now DIE FOR YOU
MugiwaraLexi: Because you have to find the glow in her boobs of course
viridimayai: if this your third playthrough?
ArcOfTheConclave: total social link rank up
vespa_amazonia: that subtle FE theme is great
TXC2: gualdhar but she's 18, the game said so Kappa
malsareus: lady, you gotta top eating flashlights
SeiichiSin: I forget what someone called it, but is like boobs are always bigger when they are in focus.
karmakamikaze: I am thou, thou art I...
Wicker_Knight: @gualdhar we have been assured she is [Local Legal Age of Consent]
Graved: kaonicPog 🌟
Traion: Kathleen do you need to ask that question? ANIME TIDDIES are at the core of the storytelling here Kappa
Qooroo: Ah, it's the Wil-o-the-tits.
Leonhart321: These tits of mine glow with an awesome power
vespa_amazonia: ah this is still happening huh
LadyLockwood92: Ah...Maiko turned up. Speaking of ridiculous boobs.
BusTed: That got me, Qooroo
jwright5475: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Kathleen takes her turn in the PiF hotseat the only way she knows how, JRPG's :D. Game: Tokyo Mirage Sessions) at Fri 10:00 AM PDT (44m ago).
accountmadeforants: It's a good thing the solid colour outfits don't have eye-holes.
Tajessa: I just got here and the first thing I saw was glowing amine tiddies. Okay.
LadyLockwood92: @vespa_amazonia Hey~ How're you doing?
vespa_amazonia: yeah this is the good take
malsareus: Agreed
TXC2: why not indeed
malsareus: it's very silly
gsyhiap: Seems like a reasonable challenge to me
Wicker_Knight: it's NOT how all games are, too. It's how too many games are, but not necessarilyl al
viridimayai: very anime
Gladuir: Just because its normal does not mean its good
jonasjonIV: she's right and she should say it
SniHjen: Perfoma, legally distinct from persona
red_shoes_jeff: You know, the two are not mutually exclusive.
Orgmastron: 100%
GapFiller: questioning why a woman is questioning The Male Gaze implies woman shd not question The Male Gaze
LadyLockwood92: @loadingreadyrun Please do~ That's absolutely the right take.
Graham_LRR: Perforrrma, you know say Itsuki me, I’m gonna blame A licky boom-boom down
GapFiller: fuck that
Disciple_of_Zeta: This standard of normal IS pretty stupid, to be honest
NojhLivic: Time for battle?
Graved: What bothers me is that there is much less effort being put into guys. Give us cool hunky guys D:
ArcOfTheConclave: just because everything is stupid doesn't mean that it can't change.
gualdhar: I mean, if we can't open games to constructive criticism then what's the point of watching a stream like this? Might as well watch a commercial
karmakamikaze: lol @ graham
angryoptimist: Also, it's one thing to be cool with it, it's another thing to let a thing go *totally unchallenged and remarked upon*. It's arguably harmful not to remark on stuff.
vespa_amazonia: @LadyLockwood92 i'm good! just about to hit that g-dawful unskippable beach sequence in my persona 3 replay but otherwise i'm great. you?
BusTed: Wow.
malsareus: and nobody else is apparantly paying attention to Tsubasa having a tittie flashlight
Tajessa: Thanks G now that's stuck in my head
jonasjonIV: shocked
Leonhart321: DAMMIT @graham_lrr That got me
PharaohBender27: Not agaaaaaaain!
MAPBoardgames: Wow, this concert went all out on their special effects.
ContingentCat: Games may be overwhelmingly male gazey, but they don't have to be!
red_shoes_jeff: "Hey, Boss... was this in the SFX budget?"
AugmentingPath: Graham_LRR didn't get enough of that with Conformer, eh?
MalBeam: her soul is light, just like dolores dei's lungs in disco elysium. tsubasa must be the next innocence
Arazien: The cutouts are moving. The budget has arrived
viridimayai: It is very easy for me to forget that this is a fire emblem crossover
ArcOfTheConclave: @malsareus Invisible! tittie flashlight
Mr_Horrible: even if they did, would they just think it's part of the performance?
SniHjen: their color is being drained
vespa_amazonia: oh no the attack of the greyscale
hyaundredneer: Missed Chat; Didn't Get: "That's normal." > "That's stupid?"
Lordofironstorm: Evil Depression Ghosts?
Mr_Horrible: we already AR'd a giant spectacle
northos: Crowd continues to be best character
Mcgwee: oh no however could this have been forseen
LadyLockwood92: @vespa_amazonia I'm good, that article about Gwyndolin you sent was absolutely fantastic, made me see her in a whole new light~
NojhLivic: What I want to know is, what started the bad guys ramping up their farming of Perfoma? This has in theory been happening awhile, but now it gets worse once Tsubasa and friends join?
DrChairthrower: @MalBeam Thinking about Disco Elysium in the context of this game gave me whiplash.
LadyLockwood92: I don't understand what people were expecting.
Lordofironstorm: That is an outfit!
SniHjen: Familiar with the game "The Void"? where you paint colours unto souls, to help them become real.
accountmadeforants: The sister, surely?
Lithobraker: Wow, imagine if the Mirages had Twitter on their side, this game would be harder than SL1 Dark Souls.
LadyLockwood92: It's Tsubasa's sister.
SniHjen: I keep thinking of it when I see the coloured crowd
Leonhart321: Gee, I wonder who that could be
LadyLockwood92: Almost certainly.
jonasjonIV: I wonder who it could be?
newstous: Oh, evil sister.
vespa_amazonia: @LadyLockwood92 i'm so glad! that character is important to me
angryoptimist: Also, I can't help but wonder if this is especially male gaze-y specifically *because* of the subject matter.
Lordofironstorm: WHo here has seen Symphogear?
ArcOfTheConclave: Which FE villain is her persona?
Traion: I would recognise those ludicrous tits anywhere. Must be Tsubasa's sister Kappa
vespa_amazonia: oh no!
PharaohBender27: :O
accountmadeforants: "Sister... what the hell is that top?"
Invitare: wow get rekt Kappa
DarkMorford: @Lordofironstorm Yo! I've still got a season or so to catch up on, but it's so much fun.
goatprince: god, the costumes in this game.
Lordofironstorm: Because Kiria's outfit here reminds me of Kirika from that show
mowdownjoe: Well, at least they don't drag this plot thread out too long.
viridimayai: Holy ridiculous outfit batman
Qooroo: Oh, she...just doesn't have a shirt, does she?
LadyLockwood92: Why is she posing like that?
Ritaspirithntr: Honestly, seeing chat for this game is fun, but also toxic, because yeah! I don’t like all those stereotypes either! But i had so much fun with the game that what i like about it is stronger than what i hate about the game. So, Sorry! It’s a fictitous game and i don’t consider comparing it to reality all too often.
Wicker_Knight: @Ritaspirithntr and we're not asking you to stop that
Arazien: Aaaaanimmeeeee
NuCk3: i've lost the plot
Wicker_Knight: but we are asking you to consider what it is you like
LadyLockwood92: Does everyone need to treat Tsubasa like that?
k_prinz: wth, i had this stream open ofn my second stream and was assuming this was just some weird idol stuff
accountmadeforants: The idolasphere is just below the toposphere.
k_prinz: but is even weirder than i imagined
Lordofironstorm: Also, this game in general reminds me a lot of Symphogear
Ritaspirithntr: @wicker_knight i know! But i always find it hard seeing negative comments about a game i like.
Wicker_Knight: absolutely understandable :)
Ritaspirithntr: @lordofironstorm YUP!!!
Hexy_Lexy234: hey wonderful humans!!! <3
Mcgwee: those hip furs are really throwing me
TXC2: hello Hexy_Lexy234 welcome
SeiichiSin: Hello Hexy!
red_shoes_jeff: Alright, NOW we're saving the world. Just took a bit to get going.
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @Hexy_Lexy234 !
Wicker_Knight: I also like this game, to be clear. but I still need to admit when some of the things I like are... umm. guilty pleasures >_>
GamesAndInk: @LoadingReadyRun If you're voicing for people who are only listening, they might entirely tune out the Japanese lines, so speaking things like "KIRIA!" might be useful to them? I think it's okay if you slip up and speak those lines :P
LadyLockwood92: I wish we hadn't had to deal with Barry to get here.
Commander_Pulsar: I have a sister, we've *never* had a problem fighting each other.
Mcgwee: ditto
Leonhart321: I have a question, both of her eyes work, so why does she need the eyepatch
Hexy_Lexy234: tfw you REALLY want some pop but dont wanna leave the house
vespa_amazonia: aesthetic
malsareus: @Leonhart321 style points
GamesAndInk: @Leonhart321 So that when she goes below decks during a pirate raid, she can take the eye patch off and have dark vision
Tajessa: because anime?
KidAmn: "Whether we wanted it or not, we've stepped into a war with the Cabal on Mars"
LadyLockwood92: It also doesn't really make sense considering her partner is Tharja, who also doesn't wear an eye patch...
Leonhart321: For all her preaching about this being a battlefield, that's a bit of a blind spot
Lordofironstorm: @Leonhart321 For the same reason 2B wears a blindfold. It looks rad
vespa_amazonia: @GamesAndInk also that, yes
pygmytortle: Kathlleen dubbing this gives me life
SeiichiSin: I'd share some with you if I could Hexy.
Mr_Horrible: I do like that she frames this as a "Now's your chance!" rather than the typical "You have to defeat the enemy no matter who it is"
Hexy_Lexy234: Ayaha? more like AYAYA
mowdownjoe: DEEP HURTING
Lordofironstorm: Oof, ouch, owie, my bones
m4sherman677: hello
angryoptimist: B o n e H u r t i n g J u i c e
accountmadeforants: Kiria, no, that's bone hurting songs!
Dared00: oof
Commander_Pulsar: "should not ... have had... the shrimp..."
SK__Ren: Thats the bone hurt juice kicking in
SniHjen: just throw a phoenix down on her
radio_penguin converted from a Twitch Prime sub to a Tier 1 sub!
LadyLockwood92: That attack targeted her bones!
Leonhart321: We don't deserve Touma
SeiichiSin: Don't say sorry for anything you adlib, we totally here for those part. Just as Graham.
sendatou: something, something power of friendship
Mcgwee: and that's how we don't have a fourth party member yet
LadyLockwood92: I don't think that's true...there are apparently a lot of you
Nanosphere5: what platform is this on?
DarkMorford: @Wicker_Knight That's always the problem I have. Like, I get that it's a problematic trope and an important real-life issue, but on the other hand, pretty girls? *shrug*
LadyLockwood92: Switch
TXC2: Nanosphere5 switch
Traion: Switch
radio_penguin: Ah good it went through. had to turn my sub over before I left for work
Lordofironstorm: Let's go to Tartarus, I mean The Palace, I mean the Idolasphere!
frnknstn: speaking of anime protagonists and painful injuries, how is Ian doing?
red_shoes_jeff: GYM CLOTHES!
angryoptimist: Gotta robe those wards and ward those robes.
Wicker_Knight: @DarkMorford the way I think about it is: "It's not a problem that stuff like this is made to tastes like mine, the problem is that tastes like mine have such an outsize influence on the things that get made"
Leonhart321: Can we keep Touma in Rider form?
LadyLockwood92: that's because she's a wamen
vespa_amazonia: i mean but that fur collar
Leonhart321: Hs the only character who deserves it
MugiwaraLexi: I hate that they ruin the best dress for Tsubasa with censoring -.- it made me sad.
LordShadner: can we upgrade Tsubasa first?
Lordofironstorm: Redhead Izaya stays
ArcOfTheConclave: Kamen Raider Cavalier!
Mr_Horrible: I *do* like the idea of one of them just walking around in the goofy battle gear while the other 2 are in street clothes
Orgmastron: Yeah the girls get a lot more outfits for...obvious...reasons
accountmadeforants: "Hee Ho Mart: Open 24/7, Magic Apocalypse Or Not!"
SeiichiSin: lrrFINE
Ritaspirithntr: But P5 has them in different clothes!
Lordofironstorm: Can't you upgrade her in the dungoen?
GamesAndInk: "What're you buyin'?"
SniHjen: @Ritaspirithntr don't even mentioned P5
LadyLockwood92: Casual Fridays~
MugiwaraLexi: @Lordofironstorm No you can't upgrade inside a dungeon, only in the home base
SK__Ren: And my axe!
EvilBadman: We've been rocking the Persona 4 Dancing costumes during Royal. :D
Leonhart321: I kept them in casual for a certain part in Royal cause that just made sense
drfox17: "By the Power of Matt Mercer!"
Dared00: gotta go fast
GamesAndInk: You mean Speed 2: Cruise Control?
ArcOfTheConclave: The red ones go faster!
radio_penguin: I was about to aske what in the heck is this then I realized that it was some Anime bollocks
Leonhart321: Can channeling Kabuto and Accel
ArcOfTheConclave: saferooms?
vespa_amazonia: this is SOMEONE'S fetish
NojhLivic: OKay that was surreal
TXC2: game.....why?
Manae: Warp pipe sleeves...
GamesAndInk: Crawling inside a giant woman's top = totally normal
Dared00: Giant costume means there must be a giant woman nearby
accountmadeforants: Cute ghost!
Lordofironstorm: Gosh heckin' dang
ContingentCat: oh hey wisp is in this game too
vespa_amazonia: all i want to do/is see you crawl into
TXC2: vespa_amazonia A Giant woman!
Mr_Horrible: yooo that's neat
Nanosphere5: what is Tokyo mirage about?
Orgmastron: This gets super complicated and annoying
Wicker_Knight: like, I don't have a problem with the animatronic maid outfit, but I kinda do have a problem with the figurines being naked instead of also being in a similar outfit
Lordofironstorm: Let's just casually crawl through this giant blouse
GamesAndInk: @Dared00 I imagine you saying that like an expert tracker. "*kneels in dirt, picks up the hem of a giant maid outfit* This was left by a giant woman. *sniffs* Anime. *rubs cloth between fingers* If I had my guess, giant tiddies."
angryoptimist: Crawling through the maid outfit--given the nature of the subject matter that the game is focused on--feels a lot more diagetic than the boob hammock, at least.
Monty_The_Python: oh hey a fire emblem game
SquareDotCube: Well, inputs can be changed as introduced in 10.0
radio_penguin: wat
Mr_Horrible: I know the feeling, Kathleen. I keep ping-ponging between WASD and click-movement games and goofing myself for the first minute of playing each one
vespa_amazonia: that motorcycle is still so good
TXC2: Nanosphere5 evil thing is stealing people's "performa" which is basically Life energy, we, a group Idols are going to stop them
Leonhart321: Touma, we do not deserve you
drfox17: Chat, I need some help... when as Chrom used 2 swords?
Wicker_Knight: never
Lafajet: @Nanosphere5 Short version? Supernatural beings are stealing people's creativity and hijacking their bodies, so you need to stop them by becoming japanese idols
angryoptimist: Consider the subject matter, if it didn't got *some* strange places, it'd be purposely avoiding addressing certain things--and that means of traversal feels the right sort of weird.
LadyLockwood92: He certainly owns two swords mind you
angryoptimist: *go *some*
Wicker_Knight: @drfox17 the same time he decided to dress like a goth emperor of dust
Ritaspirithntr: @wicker_knight oh believe me! It’s still just as weird when you see them at clothing stores
Wicker_Knight: @Ritaspirithntr true
drfox17: @Wicker_Knight good to know
vespa_amazonia: BOO
Traion: You can get Tsubasa a new weapon now btw
Nanosphere5: @lafajet @txc2 I heard this pitched as persona 5 with fire emblem combat
vespa_amazonia: oh i don't like those
Mr_Horrible: Pennywise mizzS
angryoptimist: Do you unlock more costumes for Itsuki later?
Chaotically_Random: HA HA HA NOPE KILL THEM WITH FIRE
TXC2: Nanosphere5 not exactly
Wicker_Knight: it's really not fire emblem combat
newstous: Got to say, I'm loving the absurd entrances
drfox17: I do not like these clown heads
drfox17: they're worse than mara
PharaohBender27: (Sees giant clown heads with sharp teeth) katesNope
vespa_amazonia: mara's great what are you talking about
TXC2: It's more SMT with FE characters as the summons, also the FE weapon triangle
Lafajet: @Nanosphere5 It's more like Persona/Shin Megami Tensei combat with a light sprinkling of Fire Emblem references
SniHjen: "I will lose as many cools as I want!"
Hexy_Lexy234: "who uses axes?" people who wanna AXE important questions
RunningMonkeys: heroes spoiled me on who uses axes
radio_penguin: Fire emblem sounds?
LadyLockwood92: So you *don't* need Barry.
Leonhart321: You killed a clown, you're more adept at performing to a crowd
vespa_amazonia: yeah hm
radio_penguin: oh right this is Fire Emblem...wat
Frypod1077: Tsubasa wants a new weapon looks like
Nanosphere5: so, they are following the anime trope of personality by noon size it seems
Orgmastron: Me too Kathleen
accountmadeforants: I can understand "Sword, Spear, Bow" as different physical attack types... but why Axe? Why not Blunt? (And make the rest Cutting, Piercing, Ranged)
goatprince: i am also a map filler, kathleen. it's in our editor's blood.
Lordofironstorm: Oh no! the cardboard people fell down!
SniHjen: "axe" because fire emblem
Nanosphere5: boob size not noon size
SniHjen: axe - sword - lance
goatprince: it's a lot.
accountmadeforants: SniHjen Ah, that scans
LadyLockwood92: Certainly Maiko's personality is intimately tied to her bust size.
drfox17: is it just me, or is tsubasa's level up art... nothing lik her?
GapFiller: yr do havta to wonder whether a full SMT x FE xover actually works in practice cz it feels FE just clashes too much if its anything more than flavour onna SMT base
drfox17: like, i thought that was a different character
LadyLockwood92: Oh yeah...Tiki...
GapFiller: ah Tiki
Wicker_Knight: I feel like Devil Survivor Series is far more "a combination of FE and SMT combat" than this game is
TXC2: hmmmmm I wonder which is good and which is bad Kappa
Mcgwee: I play eterian I understand
Mr_Horrible: okay, Radiant feels a much more appropriate word for Unity :p
LadyLockwood92: Passives.
Lafajet: There's at least one more Unity type, but that doesn't happen for a while
Walkingharder: Active and passive skills
PharaohBender27: @Mr_Horrible Same here
goatprince: you've mentioned the male gaze problem with this game, and guess what? that's one of the big things that kept me away! it's not actually a good idea!
drfox17: @LadyLockwood92 Ah you every stream dose of tiki
chaotic_good_ferret: ianemsComfy
accountmadeforants: "Unity" doesn't seem very... unified.
Mr_Horrible: so Radiants are like character passives, and Carnages are weapons? sofieThink
odamadillo: Oh Hey lrrMATT
LadyLockwood92: @drfox17 Thanks. I hate it.
drfox17: @Graham_LRR I see Penelope is pulling weeds
NamesAreSilly: Speaking of SMT...I *really* want a remaster of Digital Devil Saga.
Manae: @accountmadeforants I think the theory is spear beats sword with ranged, sword beats axe with finesse, axe beats spear by being able to deflect/control it
MugiwaraLexi: @Mr_Horrible You are correct
LordShadner: EPIC BRO-FIST
Lafajet: There are descriptions at the bottom of the screen
GapFiller: goatprince how dyr feel abt Tiki and The Loli Jailbait Gaze
Walkingharder: You can skip these thank the lords
Lordofironstorm: FUSION HA!
jonasjonIV: bro fist!
cassaclyzm: Just one frame of them kissing, that's all I ask
TXC2: "we call this the act of mating"
Lafajet: Aw man, I wish there were more varities of these ones
Manae: BRO-FIST OF POWER
DarkMorford: @Walkingharder But why would you? :P
ghostvalv: :O
karmakamikaze: Fist Bump of Destiny
BlueDaNewb: Gotta vogue
red_shoes_jeff: AH! M'KNUCKLES!
GapFiller: FABULOUS
Mr_Horrible: okay, that's... really funny actually
goatprince: @GapFiller not great, my dude
GapFiller: goatprince high five for this being the definition of NOT OKAY
TXC2: trap ort?
Leonhart321: Ya think?
red_shoes_jeff: Handy!
Walkingharder: They never should've let Atlus have control. You knew it was going to get weird
Mr_Horrible: escape rope Pog
drfox17: town portal?
Lafajet: This is like... the far polar opposite of all other Megaten games in terms of tone
meowzhuxi: FE 3 houses is a lot like the daytime aspects of Persona smashed together with a fire emblem game
Wicker_Knight: I mean, it makes about as much sense as "we're going to mash Disney Animated Canon and Final Fantasy together and that makes... Kingdom Hearts?"
meowzhuxi: but this is bonkers
drfox17: @Walkingharder I don't think anybody thought it was gonna be this weird, even with Atlus in charge
angryoptimist: @Wicker_Knight the DARKNESS!
Hexy_Lexy234: "sweet lance, dude, it looks totally wicked"
GapFiller: Lafajet which personally is one of the things its got going for it
GapFiller: a change of scene is sometimes good
Mr_Horrible: Wicker_Knight Disney Canon, Final Fantasy, and 12 binders full of L O R E
drfox17: @Wicker_Knight sometimes the exception proves the rule?
Dared00: wicked
PharaohBender27: That ball of yarn is OUT OF CONTROL!
Rogue_07: this seems..ominous
Lafajet: @GapFiller I mean yeah, it's nice to not have an existential breakdown every time I want to play SMT
SK__Ren: iirc this was as far as I saw when you and Heather did the WiiU streams.
Walkingharder: Atlus will always exceed expected weird levels @drfox17
Wicker_Knight: I mean, old FE TIki would probably just eat them
goatprince: i'm judging, let's be clear.
TXC2: ^
TheThromborax: da fuk
chaotic_good_ferret: are you going to be part of any magic streams anytime soon?
GapFiller: at least its not vagina steaming
PharaohBender27: Allow me to judge then - you should NOT put rocks in your hoohah
GapFiller: Gwyneth Paltrow has alot to bloddy answer for
Traion: Constant unread messages are the true experience of this game
PharaohBender27: ^
accountmadeforants: Tsubasa: "WHY ARE YOU STILL SHOPPING"
TXC2: I feel Vagina eggs are a thing even Lorna Slitwhistle wouldn't sell :P
Lithobraker: that its 100% a lie Kathleen, you judge them intensely while selling them ridiculous nonsense.
Mr_Horrible: It is odd that they don't just swap character control for sequences like this
PharaohBender27: Whoops, that "^" was for @GapFiller 's post
Mr_Horrible: since none are a silent protag
vespa_amazonia: *scurry*
northos: well that's certainly one way to make a shortcut
Traion: @pharaohbender27 nope mine know, can't have it back Kappa
angryoptimist: The only thing not worth criticizing is something too boring to be worthwhile.
Walkingharder: This was the first time they used this game engine iirc
vespa_amazonia: oh no a purple one
TheThromborax: so I guess the kiddo isn't watching this playthrough? too much Goop talk
Lafajet: Aw man, I hated these ones so much
odamadillo: I have watched Kathleen play some pretty questionable games on Now Kiss. Ozmafia is one example that comes to mind. Is this game worse than that one?
NoNane09: this is totally winnable without SPO
vespa_amazonia: rocket horse
Lithobraker: Savage enemies throw extra harsh shade on your life choices.
NoNane09: *SP
Lafajet: Let me just get from point A to point B sometimes, game
angryoptimist: lrrFINE
accountmadeforants: Are her horse's hind legs... rockets? Rad.
drfox17: @TheThromborax based on the switch notifcations, she may be pulling weeds in AC:NH
Orgmastron: I'm at the point in the game where they're more annoying than hard
red_shoes_jeff: Ozmafia was... an experience.
Wicker_Knight: I love that the pegasus is a rocket pegasus katesLol
TXC2: I miss Now Kiss :P
vespa_amazonia: oh shit
Manae: It is a bit hilarious seeing them shout out they're transforming but they just... stay the same
Traion: Ozmafia was a special kind of terrible
LadyLockwood92: Oh man... that's an awful noise
NoNane09: Stand and fight Kathleen!
NoNane09: You can do it!
Nanosphere5: this definitely has lots of make gaze stuff
TheThromborax: was that woman riding a woman who was also a motorcycle?
PharaohBender27: @odamadillo Yeah, so far Kathleen hasn't thrown off her headphones in a rage, which she did *multiple* times playing Ozmafia
vespa_amazonia: NYOOM
Lordofironstorm: Wait, are these enemies supposed to be like Samara from The Ring?
angryoptimist: SKRT
Dared00: This is "just" problematic, Ozmafia was offensively bad
Rogue_07: nope
ravensshade: relatively new game of tokyo mirage sessions i see
PharaohBender27: @Traion I feel like Ozmafia was to "Now Kiss!" what The Quivering was to "Watch+Play"
NamesAreSilly: @TheThromborax No, no. That's Snow and Shiva in FFXIII
Lafajet: Savage enemies are no joke in this game
odamadillo: Oh yeah that is true. Many moments of anger were created by Ozmad
odamadillo: *Ozmafia
Wicker_Knight: @PharaohBender27 or what Detroit Too Human was to Talking Simulator
Nanosphere5: I've not heard of ozmafia sounds terrible though
PharaohBender27: @Wicker_Knight Right, that too
Traion: @pharaohbender27 wow that is so right it blew my mind
Lafajet: Ah yes, Nickelwise
angryoptimist: I have no idea what Ozmafia is.
accountmadeforants: What makes Ozmafia truly special is that apparently, Kathleen hadn't even gotten to the *most* icky bits.
TheThromborax: @namesaresilly are they ALSO in this game?
ravensshade subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 54 months!
ravensshade: I sure love me some tokyo mirage
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ravensshade! (Today's storm count: 11)
NojhLivic: Did we change our costumes? Why are we in street clothes?
NamesAreSilly: @TheThromborax Nah, just a bad joke
meowzhuxi: I know its been said, but those clown heads are absolutely terrifying
NojhLivic: Oh okay. Cool.
odamadillo: @angryoptimist Good. Don't ever find out what it is!
Frypod1077: This game has some issues, but the combat system is real good imo
Nanosphere5: as a new watched what is "now kiss"?
PharaohBender27: @angryoptimist It was an "Otome" [sp?] Japanese romance game Kathleen played on "Now Kiss!" in late 2018, and it was so horrible that Kathleen instituted a "No otome games ever" rule for that stream
ravensshade: meanwhile I just used the freelc outfits
drfox17: let's not take that phrase out of context
TheThromborax: @namesaresilly if you told me there was Kingdom Hearts DLC for this I would believe you
Rogue_07: you absolutely just picked up a Jedi holocron
Lordofironstorm: @PharaohBender27 What's an otome game?
drfox17: @Nanosphere5 Kathleen's stream for dating sims
Lafajet: I never noticed that before, did that storefront say "Love Fed Fat"?
angryoptimist: @PharaohBender27 Wow.
PharaohBender27: @Nanosphere5 It was a stream series Kathleen used to do, which focused on romance games
TheThromborax: yes that is what it said
PharaohBender27: @Lordofironstorm Ot
Wicker_Knight: @Lordofironstorm in this discussion: romance-focused visual novel
TheThromborax: gold engram
PharaohBender27: @Lordofironstorm A very specific, Japanese style of romance-focused visual novel, to be specific
Lorennar: wait, was the clown called nicklewise?
Wicker_Knight: This is way too long an animation for a basic attack
Hexy_Lexy234: did... did he just "ORA"
Nanosphere5: so... is that her private stream or..?
accountmadeforants: Wicker_Knight Ehhh... Otome is very specifically Japanese(-style) and aimed at women. Butterfly Soup is also a romance-focused visual novel.
TXC2: Nanosphere5 no it was on this channel
Ritaspirithntr: Thankfully there’s a Play Record (achievement) for ignoring a bunch of them!
PharaohBender27: @Nanosphere5 No, it was a LRR stream - she hasn't done it for a while
asthanius: There's badly-made, and then there's bad
LadyLockwood92: @nanosphere5 Kathleen only does music streams on her personal stream.
GapFiller: yeh did we ever get a proper statistical analysis on how often Now Kiss got into W+P territory?
TheThromborax: there is nothing on earth worse than a bad twine game
odamadillo: My favourite Now Kiss games was Arcade spirits with Jacob and Roommates with Matt
SniHjen: you can activate "quick session" with a press of a button.
Graham_LRR: @nanosphere5 It was on this channel this channel but we couldn’t find a good time for it between Road Quest editing and then “the current circumstances”. It may yet return some day.
Rogue_07: "nickelwise" oh, that's moderately clever
LadyLockwood92: Moderately...
thirsty_kitteh: I'm curious, Kathleen -- if there _was_ a male gaze toggle you could turn off[1], what would be the next thing you'd want to change? Is it the clueless protag writing?
Sky_Kast: Hiya
Nanosphere5: so ozmafia his a game and now kiss is a stream title / stream type
PharaohBender27: @odamadillo I straight up bought Arcade Spirits based on those Now Kiss! episodes
Hexy_Lexy234: ABC - Always Be ConsumingMP
TheThromborax: did she and Jacob finish that April Fool's game Love Thyself where you date a clone of the same person you are a clone of?
angryoptimist: Another good way to avoid saying the demonization word, Graham: Human Malware.
odamadillo: I would if I could too Pharaoh but I need money first
thirsty_kitteh: [1] the toggle should be off by default, but it was hard to get that in syntax
NoNane09: Dia is basically a full heal at this point and it's great.
LadyLockwood92: I wish Edelgard was in this game, she'd have this fixed in no time.
PharaohBender27: @odamadillo It's too bad they had to quit Roommates because they got soft-locked out of their chosen romance
Wicker_Knight: @Nanosphere5 correct, Ozmafia was a game Kathleen played on her (now no longer active) Now Kiss series on this stream
Lordofironstorm: I want all of those character sketches in an art book or something
GapFiller: nanosphere5 ect the Now Kiss archive: http://wiki.loadingreadyrun.com/index.php/Now_Kiss!
Rogue_07: Wait, game, you are not allowed to use the Fire Emblem levelup fangare and not have random stat gain
Lafajet: "At times there will be a wall" is just good life advice
red_shoes_jeff: Mr. Itsuki, TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!
Sky_Kast: poor Graham
Anubis169: meow... manMARTIN
Rogue_07: I call foul
accountmadeforants: "Strike! For your right! To tear down that wall!"
odamadillo: Yeah that was annoying. Stupid game mechanics.
Dandinstorm12: meow indeed
TXC2: hello Anubis169
angryoptimist: Please evaporate clowns.
drfox17: hey @Anubis169
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller That link leads to an empty page
Sky_Kast: still pets can carry and pass coronavirus too
Lordofironstorm: Oof, enemies get Sessions too
TheThromborax: just say no to putting clowns in your game
incslayer subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 49 months!
incslayer: ooh a for me rare Kathleen Sub Reading hows the mirage sessions going?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, incslayer! (Today's storm count: 12)
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 It seems the exclamation mark was supposed to be part of the link.
Mr_Horrible: oh, interesting that enemies get the combo attacks too
Wicker_Knight stands up to defend evil clowns *Head bitten off*
TXC2: GapFiller no luck
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, that makes sense for a SMT game.
TXC2: !vod
LRRbot: Streams from the last few days can be found at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/videos and the Archive of all streams can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/loadingreadylive
Mr_Horrible: that'll probably make for some neat boss fights
angryoptimist: RE: putting clowns in your game: this is Atlus, they WANTED it to be unsettling.
Rogue_07: were Tsubasa and Caeda talking about food there?
GapFiller: its the exclamation mark at the end thats doing it
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! Are you wondering what's causing our movement to be controlled?
Rogue_07: my Japanese sucks
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller For some reason it refuses to hyperlink the "!" adding it in the address bar worked
GapFiller: the linx dont work cz of the exclaimation mark at the end
GapFiller: dont knw howto deal w/ that exlcamation mark
DarkMorford: @Rogue_07 Yes. Something about parfaits, but I didn't quite catch Caeda's response
red_shoes_jeff: You do have all those Chakra Drops, though.
LadyLockwood92: Cheer245 Please don't ever stop criticising the Male Gaze in this game. It's far too important to speak out about it.
Nanosphere5: vn's don't usually have a lot of game play but It sounds like looking up the review or game play of ozmafia to see what made it terrible
Traion: Solving SP is easy just level goth doctor until she sells you SP patches Kappa
LadyLockwood92: Now for some cake
Walkingharder: It takes a while for the combat in the this game to get rolling but once it does it is a blast
Nanosphere5: the male gaze in hyperneptunia was also pretty bad
Sky_Kast: wow
TXC2: SFRA
Wicker_Knight: Ozmafia's writing involved a lot of representation of abusive behavior as "being helpful but honest" @Nanosphere5
GapFiller: speaking of Now Kiss still gotta watch Kathleen playing the John Cena Game
GapFiller: and Panzermadel Tank Dating Simulator as iirc Kathleen played that too
Traion: @nanosphere5 the writing was a hellscape
angryoptimist: I don't think all the elements of male gaze have to go away entirely, but it should NEVER go unremarked upon.
Lordofironstorm: That was some Scooby Doo level running
northos: lrrEsCaPe
LadyLockwood92: Male Gaze in Digimon games these days is through the roof, it's the worst part about them.
NoNane09: Kathleen, you can totally take the savage fights at this point, and they're basically an instant level-up
Lafajet: Run away, run away, run away now
angryoptimist: @LadyLockwood92 Why is it there?!
odamadillo: @ladylockwood92 Do you mean Kyoko from Cyber Sleuth?
angryoptimist: Like, Neptunia, I get.
SniHjen: oh no, found a cutscene
LadyLockwood92: Also Nokia, and Erika in Hacker's Memory.
raven534: why is it called male gaze instead of skeezy gaze?
vespa_amazonia: OUTFIT
Frypod1077: Tsubasa really likes scanning the horizon indoors
Nanosphere5: how much queer coding is in this game?
drfox17: @LadyLockwood92 there re digimon games?
LadyLockwood92: Simone De Beauvoir I believe.
PharaohBender27: @Wicker_Knight Not to mention the body-shaming *and* it turning out you had to windmill slam your chosen romance from the very start in order to actually get anywhere with them
GapFiller: raven534 skeezy makes it too obvs this thing is NOT OKAY
Psitterrific subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 28 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Psitterrific! (Today's storm count: 13)
Orgmastron: @nanosphere5 A little bit
GapFiller: Male Gaze gives it the thinnest vineer of being fine
Wicker_Knight: @raven534 it comes from the very early days of feminist theory, when the challenge was just to define something other than "universal vision"
Orgmastron: ^
Mr_Horrible: the combat looks *very* nice
Graham_LRR: @raven534 It comes from film theory: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Male_gaze
vespa_amazonia: also "skeezy" gaze doesn't locate the problem within patriarchy, which would make it kind of toothless as a term of criticism imo
Mr_Horrible: the right balance of depth and action
Leonhart321: I mean, mechanically speaking I like it
Orgmastron: The combat is really solid
angryoptimist: The idea of a universal vision is kind of laughable, when you think about it.
LadyLockwood92: @vespa_amazonia That's a very good point
GapFiller: speaking of Hard Mode yr wonder what Adam wd make of this game
Hexy_Lexy234: @Graham_LRR reminder that youre a wonderful person
GapFiller: he HAS played P5
SniHjen: I've seen some lategame gameplay, and sessions get absurd, so you have that to look forward to.
Leonhart321: Its just the wrapping the mechanics are in is not tickling my particular JRPG itch
Nanosphere5: sktchy gaze turns it into a "I'll know it when I see it " issue
angryoptimist: A universal cultural perspective is not a thing that's even remotely close to existing.
Lafajet: I like how chat just sort of turns into a university seminar with this game (and I'm not being sarcastic here)
vespa_amazonia: this is...such a look
Ritaspirithntr: Should’ve just left that guy! He’d be fine!
TXC2: anything called universal isn't
thirsty_kitteh: This world hasn't invents high necklines at all, has it?
TheThromborax: shirts are BANNED
LadyLockwood92: Damn, that is an outfit.
Hexy_Lexy234: he has 2 different coloured eyes
Lorennar: heterochromatic eyes
Mr_Horrible: thirsty_kitteh there's just not enough fabric in this Tokyo :p
PharaohBender27: That is a *long* scarf
StewartRWyatt: Given the trend of Persona games, this guy is too extra not to be a bad guy
Wicker_Knight: @thirsty_kitteh what's a neckline? is that likea where you put an open collar?
Lordofironstorm: In TMS, all necklines shallower than three feet are illegal
GapFiller: that is Tom Baker level scarf there
Wicker_Knight: I like his hair
vespa_amazonia: oh the SHOES
TXC2: wow them shoes
Mr_Horrible: "Wait, didn't we leave a Savage fight back there on the way to the entrance?..." "AAAAAGH"
JAGxTERRA: hey everyone
GapFiller: oh those shoes are fab
LadyLockwood92: Hi~
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @JAGxTERRA !
angryoptimist: "I'll know it when I see it"-subjectivity is unavoidable when it comes to matters of culture and human values. Even the obvious isn't as obvious to some as you would think--if it was a solved problem, literally nothing would be the same.
Paranundrox: hey Kathleen, hey chat
Paranundrox: picked my Lunatic NG + run back up because of this stream
Paranundrox: it's a fun game
accountmadeforants: TXC2 I'll have you know USB is perfectly universal! *Plugs USB-C cable into laptop, but it's the wrong kind of identical-looking cable, so it doesn't actually carry display signals*
Mr_Horrible: alright, engaging lurk mode while I go into Sprint Planning
Countzeroor: Hang on - Nickelwise?
PharaohBender27: @angryoptimist As I sometimes think to myself, one person's "common sense" is another person's nonsense
odamadillo: What consoles is this game on?
PharaohBender27: @Paranundrox Ahoy-hoy!
TXC2: odamadillo switch
Paranundrox: Swich @odamadillo
BusTed: Lookin' cool, Itsuke!
NamesAreSilly: @Countzeroor Atlus, and JRPGs in general, love their puns
Paranundrox: there's also the WiiU version
NoNane09: Pretty sure those are the enemies in the savage fight too
TXC2: hello Paranundrox welcome
Paranundrox: but this is a rerelease/port
angryoptimist: Hi Paranundrox
StewartRWyatt: Is a 3-chain the highest it can go? Or can party members get multiple chains in?
odamadillo: Just Switch and Wii U?
ravensshade: yup
PharaohBender27: Did Tsubasa just backwards yeet herself out of view!?
Paranundrox: @StewartRWyatt you get more chains as you get members, and later on you unlock things that can reset the chain
LadyLockwood92: Also, I really wish I could check out Kathleen's personal stream more often, sadly it starts at 3am for me.
Lafajet: @NoNane09 the savage versions are a higher level afaik
Countzeroor: @NamesAreSilly That's less "pun" and more "change the denomination of the coin to Stephen King doesn't sue us."
Paranundrox: I've gotten up to a 24 chain before
accountmadeforants: They're training you for when they sneak in the "Is Pepsi okay?"
odamadillo: I have neither of those. Guess that means I can not play it for a while.
Walkingharder: The Switch version has updated graphics and more content. And the biggest plus is that you don't need to buy a WiiU just for one game lol
Nanosphere5: @wicker_knight oh that awful "I am being honest trope" that's actually " no you are an asshole " from earlier ozmafia talk
Lafajet: Unless I'm totally misremembering things, Savage fights are always at an average level above your party level
northos: I mean, aside from all the nonsense we've already called out, I actually do think the style looks pretty good
Traion: ^
Paranundrox: yeah Savage fights are always a challenge
LadyLockwood92: Unfortunately despite SMT generally being on PlayStation, Fire Emblem is a Nintendo franchise.
Traion: Savage fights scale
Paranundrox: they scale with you
vespa_amazonia: i do really like these hand-drawn level-up screens
Theycallmejokke: Oh no I'm late
Lafajet: @Traion That's what I was thinking
Traion: I think you'll find that this game usually pits chests in the foreground Kathleen Kappa
Wicker_Knight: @Nanosphere5 yep. Ozmafia had lots of [Male Love Interest]: "You [Female MC] are ugly and weak and stupid and need protecting and not to make decisions" [Female MC]: "Oh I feel so cared for"
TXC2: Hello Theycallmejokke welcome
LadyLockwood92: Having said everything I've said about this game, it's making me wanna play Three Houses again.
Theycallmejokke: Thanks! :D
northos: @Traion lrrWOW
asthanius: "Fun combat" "I will avoid combat" :D
JAGxTERRA: nominations for best boi?
Paranundrox: Touma, easy
Theycallmejokke: I hope I haven't missed to much awkade anime fun
northos: Touma not close
LadyLockwood92: Windmillslam Touma.
Traion: Touma not remotely close
LadyLockwood92: No contest.
MugiwaraLexi: Touma is hands down best boy
Wicker_Knight: I have a soft spot for this game's Yusuke equivalent
Lordofironstorm: I wish the Switch port would include 3 Houses characters as partners. Claude would be an excellent partner for Itsuki
Wicker_Knight: but it's probably still Touma
LadyLockwood92: Itsuki's just kind of a wet fart of a character.
Paranundrox: @Lordofironstorm I'd love to see another title in this series
Lafajet: I feel like the Traport stones are a bit useless when you get Traport so early on from Tsubasa
Paranundrox: most of the items are irrelevant
Lordofironstorm: Because Itsuki has no personality and Claude has a ton of it
LadyLockwood92: Maybe they could get the team from Three Houses to help in the writing.
Paranundrox: I'd love to see another TMS game with more than a slight FE wrapping around it
Nanosphere5: @wicker_knight ......... wow. I don't think I have seen something that blatant in years even in non western media / horrible "dating" games
red_shoes_jeff: Upastairs.
Lithobraker: LadyLockwood92 that's unfair to wet farts. Itsuki is far more bland than a fart could ever hope to be.
cassaclyzm: I absolutely do
Lafajet: @Paranundrox I mean, I made use of many of them but overall It's mainly the healing items that get much use
Traion: Just the part of the team that wrote Sylvain, Hilda and Claude supports please
angryoptimist: @Wicker_Knight Well, that's gross. I have to wonder how much of that is just cultural or weird authorial baggage or just a kink I don't agree with. Not that I'm meaning to kinkshame, exactly...
DeadGunner: about the only thing i can do acctually
PharaohBender27: @Nanosphere5 I mean, there's a reason that game is particularly infamous in this community
drfox17: mmm coldbrew coffee
LadyLockwood92: @lithobraker You're right, that's my bad.
sorceress966: I grew up on nintendo games with a fixed camera, I SUCKED at camera control until Breath Of The Wild
NojhLivic: I wonder if we'd be more enamoured with these characters if we could hear what they're combat dialog was.
NoNane09: HL2 and Portal trained the whole virtual 3d space thing into me
Wicker_Knight: @angryoptimist I definitely think it was meant as a kink, target audience is explicitly young women. It just really didn't work
LadyLockwood92: I don't know that you can save Itsuki tbh
JAGxTERRA: something something awesome lol
Hexy_Lexy234: @drfox17 dangit, now i wish i had a coffee maker
Dandinstorm12: Kathleen "chatty bunch" DeVere
drfox17: @sorceress966 Same! I never got the hang of dual stick controls until BoTW
Lithobraker: "Great job Joker"
drfox17: @Hexy_Lexy234 I'm using a blender pitcher, some cheesecloth and folgers
Theycallmejokke: My guess is its just a lot of "take that" and "Hah! A hit"
sorceress966: @drfox17 Yeah IKR, and I still haven't gotten a handle on going first person
Traion: Somewhere in those 21 text chains Tiki will let you know if you can make a new weapon ;)
angryoptimist: @Wicker_Knight I'm... not sure how I feel about that. I don't want to kinkshame, but that seems... I mean, as long as people can separate it from reality... huh, not sure at all how to feel about that.
SniHjen: they say the name of the person who goes next in the session
Hexy_Lexy234: @drfox17 thats super innovative and nifty
TXC2: all they say is "I think that enemy got the...point!" Kappa
Walkingharder: There will be certain things you can't access in each dungeon until later as well.
Nanosphere5: their audience was young women? not men who want to enjoy that sort of domineering behaviour portrayal?

LadyLockwood92: I'm amazed you have service.
Lafajet: I recommend making frequent use of the map in all the dungeons but especially this one. It's very confusing spatially
Traion: @nanosphere5 yes
GapFiller: not that it matters as not interested enough to wanna hear it anyway but does this game even have an ENG dub
LadyLockwood92: Ah, Lady Underboob returns.
Paranundrox: can that even be called an outfit?
northos: GapFiller no
drfox17: @sorceress966 funny enough, I used Kathleen's "inverted X & Y" settings for BotW, and in 3rd person, it works really well
Lordofironstorm: That's a seriously good cell phone company who can get you 4G reception in Hell
JAGxTERRA: dem glasses swoon
Nigouki: why are all of them lighter than air?
Wicker_Knight: @GapFiller nope
Lafajet: @GapFiller Nope, Japanese VO only
NamesAreSilly: WHY are you trying to run away from where you need to go to reach her?
angryoptimist: If it won't immediately get you arrested, it's an outfit.
NamesAreSilly: Silly character...
NoNane09: Itsuki: "Please don't get us all baited."
Traion: @paranundrox you have to be pretty outward and fit to wear it sooooo... Kappa

Hexy_Lexy234: @drfox17 what ice cream would you recommend to go with a hot coffee float?
NoNane09: Oh man, it's time to get those sweet sweet CHOICE emotes again
Lafajet: Is Touma a third wheel if Itsuki is more like... training wheels?
angryoptimist: @Lordofironstorm :D
Nanosphere5: I am guessing that localization would cost much more than they are interested in?
Lithobraker: drfox17 so you're saying it's the perfect powerup for my IRL speedrun attempts?
TXC2: Lordofironstorm that's not all that's gonna go brrrrr Kappa
LadyLockwood92: Itsuki is the protagonist purely because they needed one and Atlus has a chronic 'Cool Sidekick' fetish.
TXC2: Nanosphere5 probably
drfox17: @Hexy_Lexy234 Generally vanilla is the best choice, you don't want too many crazy flavors coming through, but amarreto (almond) is also a very good choice
Traion: Itsuki isn't a wheel, a wheel has defined edges. He's a soft sphere
Manae: And heal up
GapFiller: Nanosphere5 it feels the only audience for this game wd not be interested in such a localisation anyway
Hexy_Lexy234: @drfox17 thanks, friend
TXC2: !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. Don't forget to wash your hands!
GapFiller: BRAKE THYME!
Lafajet: @NoNane09 I mean, the game is localized but not translated. It's basically the bare minimum made to make it better fit western standards of acceptability (which is saying a lot here)
Wicker_Knight: @Nanosphere5 that seems like a reasonable guess. There's also A LOTTT of VA in this game, and Atlus has experience with how exhausting that amount of translation and rerecording can be
drfox17: @Lithobraker Just a Hyper from FF, basically
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:41:40.
PharaohBender27: Hey! My domain is perfectly pleasant, I'll have you know! Kappa
Brozard: @gapfiller smells better than my usual brakes
Lafajet: The next dungeon is probably what was changed the most for the western release
Nanosphere5: so... why are they fighting on stages?
Lordofironstorm: Also, if there's ever a sequel to this game, can Sothis replace child Tiki so it's not quite as creepy
GapFiller: Nanosphere5 Idol stages duh
NojhLivic: They fight on stages cause they're performers
Orgmastron: Something something magical idols
LadyLockwood92: Or just replace kid!Tiki with adult Tiki.
Nanosphere5: so like paper Mario?
Wicker_Knight: sure, let's go with that
LadyLockwood92: Kinda, yeah.
Lafajet: I say we replace Tiki with Sothe so he can just be serious and disappointed with us
odamadillo: Who is Sothe?
Wicker_Knight: TWEEST, replace Tiki with Nah, who can also be aloof and disappointed with us :P
Lafajet: He's from FE9-10
Lordofironstorm: @odamadillo He was from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn
Lordofironstorm: The Ike games
odamadillo: I know Awakening only and some from Heroes when I played that
PharaohBender27: katesWave lrrKATHLEEN
Lordofironstorm: He's an edgy rogue-boi
LadyLockwood92: Welcome back
Lafajet: He had a bigger role in the second game, sort of like a mentor to the first lord character
Brozard: That was abrupt
Brozard: I legit jumped in my seat
LadyLockwood92: @wicker_knight Sothis can also be aloof and disappointed in us.
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:45:39.
vespa_amazonia: UNBREAKABLE
GapFiller: how can it be a MegaTen game w/out any backtracking? Kappa
Hexy_Lexy234: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 12:23:50. lrrSPOT
Orgmastron: The red and green you can't break until MUCH later
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That appears to be some sort of sidewalk slam.
drfox17: @Hexy_Lexy234 I just thought, toffee ice cream in coffee would be great too
Wicker_Knight: @LadyLockwood92 yeah, that's what I was riffing off of :) Alternately, Henry could be friendly and supportive and creepy without being... loli!Tiki friendly supportive and creepy...
Lafajet: That is like, almost final dungeon later wall
drfox17: @Hexy_Lexy234 or chocolate, how am i forgetting that one
PharaohBender27: I think I'd feel weird having to crawl thrugh a giant dress :P
VTMonster: Hi Kathleen, have you beat this game before?
GapFiller: VTMonster not beaten no
GapFiller: she played it a whole bunch times w/ Heather back in the day
northos: hax
drfox17: @PharaohBender27 Listen, sometimes you gotta crawl through a woman's giant dress
Dandinstorm12: !quote 36
LRRbot: Quote #36: "More VIT!" —Omega_Lairon
Lafajet: She's seeing through the code
Traion: Kathleen seabatBRAIN DeVeere
Theycallmejokke: sneaky
Hexy_Lexy234: @drfox17 ooh, now i really wanna try all 3 of these. time to get coffee supplies
Simonark: I just got here and the clowns...
TXC2: Hello Simonark welcome
northos: oh I just noticed the "artist credit" line on the label for who's doing what attack at the moment...that's cute
PharaohBender27: Yeah, sorry about the clownheads, @Simonark
Traion: The glasses on Tsubasa are really cute
Simonark: They have guns in their mouths, too. That's very phobia-efficient.
TXC2: It's finally getting cooler here in the UK :p
Lafajet: @northos Yeah, the UI isn't great in all instances but it has very many nice small details like that
odamadillo: @txc2 You are a Brit too?
GapFiller: TXC2 and yet its still warmer enough that Im having to open my windows
CraziestOwl: What did I walked in to
TXC2: odamadillo sure am
drfox17: @TXC2 funny enough, it is also getting cool here in the US
Paranundrox: god the FE level up sound is so viscerally satisfying
TXC2: GapFiller indeed
Paranundrox: just needs the stats up ding
drfox17: why is Tsubasa's level up art... not look like her
Orgmastron: @paranundrox It does!
TXC2: drfox17 it was probably made at a different time
TXC2: then they made changes
kanadinbacon221 subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 10 months!
kanadinbacon221: Yeet! almost a year. i love you guys and all the content you guys put out. thanks for being so amazing and cool!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, kanadinbacon221! (Today's storm count: 19)
drfox17: @Paranundrox part of me is still expecting the repeated "DING" of stats
Paranundrox: yeah
Paranundrox: pwing pwing pwing pwing is just so satisfying
Theycallmejokke: oh well
Lafajet: Ah yes, the bane of every JRPG player
Dandinstorm12: Kathleen "Boo! What a waste" DeVere
Lordofironstorm: @drfox17 It kinda looks like her? The hair is just a slightly different shade
NoNane09: Don't forget the other level-up stuff?
Traion: Also do new weapons?
tctrain: repeated dings? you guys are getting lots of your stats going up on levels? Kappa
LordShadner: check for new weapons?
PharaohBender27: For one second there, I thought lrrKATHLEEN was talking about real life :P #TheCurrentCircumstances
Paranundrox: Itsuki maintians a food blog
Paranundrox: I refuse to believe otherwise
drfox17: @tctrain not on Igntaz, that lazy bum
Paranundrox: he gives a review of every drink and food item you eat
TXC2: I don't know, that sounds like him having a personality Kappa
vespa_amazonia: who's that crab-hands guy
NoNane09: at least it's not like p5 where if you miss the engage slash you basically lose
Paranundrox: later on when the enemies can Session, things can get worse faster
vespa_amazonia: why is it tap-dancing
Lafajet: @NoNane09 Yeah, this is far from the most punishing SMT game. Still, things can go bad pretty quickly
Lordofironstorm: @vespa_amazonia Whay aren't YOU tap-dancing?
vespa_amazonia: lack of training, talent & inclination
Paranundrox: the nice thing is these kinds of enemies all follow the weapon triangle, so guessing resistances/weaknesses isn't as hard
NoNane09: i love the turn order indicator
Dandinstorm12: impressive
Theycallmejokke: woopsy doodle
ContingentCat: turn around bright eysss
Lafajet: The best way to show they don't scare you, right?
NoNane09: tried to 180 trickstab an enemy in front of you, gg
AtomicAlchemical: Turned around and saw the thing that made the sound
Paranundrox: Savage Encounters sacle
Paranundrox: *scale
GDwarf: Savage encounters scale to your level, IIRC
Traion: It scales
PharaohBender27: I *really* do not like that sort of scream/cry sound that enemy makes
drfox17: but why take the chance
Paranundrox: so Savages will be higher level now too
Lafajet: @GDwarf They scale to set levels, but are always above you if I remember correctly
NoNane09: @drfox17 EXP. Lots and lots of EXP.
LordShadner: maybe a mew weapon would help Kappa
LordShadner: *new
Lafajet: So there's basically "tiers" of savage encounters
drfox17: @NoNane09 i was advocating for more grinding, actually. I didn't realize it scaled
NoNane09: You'll get a TON of bonus damage from weapon upgrading rn
GDwarf: This game *is* bad for constantly giving you reasons to leave the dungeon
Dandinstorm12: sounds rough
Traion: Savage encounters drop some stuff you need for late game upgrades iirc
Theycallmejokke: Our magic little sister
drfox17: @LadyLockwood92 okay, so I guess you get two doses today
NoNane09: +10% HP is never bad
Lafajet: If you want to be sure there are weapons for next time, you can check your messages and it'll show every available Unity by name
NoNane09: Touma the walking talking Repel
ChaoticObserver: Brofists in space
Khador1: what on earth is going on?
drfox17: @NoNane09 I would make a joke about his personality, but he seems like a nice guy
Leonhart321: And yet, still the best character so far
TXC2: "and that's where babies come from"
Lafajet: I REALLY wish these weren't just the same sequence with different characters
Paranundrox: I don't think that ever triggered for me in my playthrough :P
Paranundrox: since I never really used items
drfox17: tiki just has a sippy cup of performa
drfox17: or a juice box
Lafajet: That is a nice detail
pumpkinnecromancer: Oh hey this game
Paranundrox: she's just suffering under the yoke of capitalism
accountmadeforants: "Capitalism... ho..."
Paranundrox: it's not Mirage related :P
Lafajet: Are we headcannoning this character to be Recette now chat?
Khador1 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 33 months!
Khador1: Today is my birthday so its nice to spend it watching this with my family and eating cake, thanks LRR and Kathleen
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Khador1! (Today's storm count: 20)
DarkMorford: @drfox17 Now that I know of. I think he'd like it, but all the badgering from chat kinda pushed him away.
Walkingharder: Happy Birthday @Khador1 !!!!
DarkMorford: Not*
Dared00: @Khador1 happy birthday! lrrAWESOME
drfox17: @DarkMorford aww, we're the reason we can't have nice things
pumpkinnecromancer: @lafajet she’s actually based on Aimee from the FE PoR games
odamadillo: @khador1 Your subjecting your family to this? Happy birthday!
PharaohBender27: Happy birthday, @Khador1 ! katesHype
TXC2: Happy Birthday Khador1
DarkMorford: @drfox17 Yeah, you'd think we'd have learned after souring so many things for Alex, but, well, chat.
Paranundrox: happy birthday! @Khador1
Lafajet: No nostalgia allowed here, Idols
pumpkinnecromancer: Want a suggestion from a veteran from this game?: Keep those melmarks @loadingreadyrun
Khador1: Thank you you chat, all of you have good days as well :)
Paranundrox: @DarkMorford sadly some people learning isn't all of chat learning, and it only takes a few
Orgmastron: The minimap is not great
Akchipman: Ooh, weird fe spinoff. Let's go!
Paranundrox: @Akchipman it's more an SMT game with a FE overcoat
pumpkinnecromancer: So you’re just at the 106 dungeon right?
Paranundrox: yes
totole654: @JokerBoney thank you fpr gifting me the sub
NoNane09: Shibuya navigation is saved only by the fact that pressing X always opens the Tokyo map.
Critterbot: Nice.
odamadillo: @khador1 Spending birthdays with this community is always great. I had the same experience yesterday for mine.
drfox17: "One More!"
Theycallmejokke: Just killing all the things
Lafajet: @Paranundrox Three SMT's in an FE overcoat?
pumpkinnecromancer: I’m actually in a fan discord server for this game
Akchipman: SMT?
Paranundrox: Shin Megami Tensei
Paranundrox: the Persona series is also SMT derived
pumpkinnecromancer: Yes always remember to save
Walkingharder: I live dungeon crawling
vespa_amazonia: love a good dungeon crawl myself
the_cardiac_people: its just nice to have the chill stream going lol
Hexy_Lexy234: i came here for the Kathleen and i intend on staying for the Kathleen
Lafajet: This isn't the best dungeon for exploring from a viewer perspective, but in general I'm for it
pumpkinnecromancer: I got VERY lost here. Also new follower made
Paranundrox: this dungeon is kind a pain tbh
DarkMorford: I mean, a number of us are here more for hanging out with you, not so much the game.
Lafajet: It's very demanding on spatial reasoning
Korolan: If people didn’t like watching you explore the dungeon, they wouldn’t be watching you play a jRPG?
drfox17: @pumpkinnecromancer welcome!
Paranundrox: mostly because it takes a bit to go up and down the outfits
TXC2: hello pumpkinnecromancer welcome
Korolan: Do what makes you happy TBH
pumpkinnecromancer: Yeah it’s a bit of puzzle solving
Orgmastron: Yeah I can't navigate most of the dungeons without a walkthrough
Lafajet: The later dungeons are way easier to follow as a viewer
Theycallmejokke: Nicklewise, Ha! Hadn't spotted the clow enemies name, well played game
Traion: People wouldn't want to watch Kathleen explore dungeons, I mean it's not like there was an entire show on this channel dedicated to her playing JRPGs... Kappa
LordShadner: your on quick-session
pumpkinnecromancer: Yeah I’m a big fan of this game ^^
Lafajet: Quick session just speeds up the animations
pumpkinnecromancer: Quick session just speeds up the animations
Paranundrox: you thought it was an elevator, but it was me, Stairs!
Lafajet: @pumpkinnecromancer Jinx!
Paranundrox: that staircase seems extremely unsafe
Dandinstorm12: thanks game
pumpkinnecromancer: That’s usually the big indicator
KinoGami: quick session doesn't just speed up animations it also just cuts some
vespa_amazonia: onee-chan i'm here and i brought you a shirt
Theycallmejokke: New paerty member get?
jonasjonIV: yes, please put on clothes
KinoGami: makes it more bearable later in game when you have longer chains in battle
boristhewizard: RPGAyaya RPGAyaya RPGAyaya
Thisbymaster: she did forget to get dressed.
drfox17: Be Like Joker: Always Dress for the Occasion
Brozard: I was expecting Aya to turn around and have that creepy idol show host’s face
KinoGami: so it doesn't feel like it takes forever to kill one enemy when your session is like 16 long
pumpkinnecromancer: Tsubasa is adorable
accountmadeforants: *neat
LadyLockwood92: That's her *not* dressing for the occasion?
PharaohBender27: She's remembering!
Leonhart321: That unwavering,vacant gaze
pumpkinnecromancer: @kinogami my record session is like 35
Lordofironstorm: D: RUDE!
vespa_amazonia: one of the unwavering gays, maybe
LadyLockwood92: How long ago did her sister disappear?
drfox17: when you're a phantom thief, you can go with anything: places, dates, game awards
ArcOfTheConclave: what happened to the Tsubasa's wing broach?
jonasjonIV: back when her sister was THIRTEEN.
LadyLockwood92: Yeah...
drfox17: heather doing some turnip sellin'
goatprince: aaaaa.
Paranundrox: let's play a round of "guess the FE character" :P
Lafajet: Primal scream achieved, now it's an SMT game
NoNane09: Why would the mirage be trying to hurt its host?
Traion: @jonasjoniv ten in the Japanese plot...
LadyLockwood92: Don't worry tho, she's definitely [18]
drfox17: I'm going with.... dark magic lady
drfox17: from one of the games
NojhLivic: And got so far
Paranundrox: @drfox17 so descriptive :P
LadyLockwood92: Robin?
drfox17: @Paranundrox Eeeeeevil dark magic lady
jonasjonIV: yes, "thirteen
jonasjonIV: "
odamadillo: I think Aversa
pumpkinnecromancer: I know the answer so I’m not saying anything
Lordofironstorm: @Paranundrox Imma say Camilla because she fits this game's aesthetic
Akchipman: so, which fe characters besides Tika have we met?
Paranundrox: I don't think there's anything from Fates in this game?
Lordofironstorm: Or did Fates come out after this?
TXC2: Akchipman Chrom and caeda
Paranundrox: @Akchipman Chrom, Caeda and Cain
Traion: Fates was after iirc
Paranundrox: yeah
Lafajet: @Akchipman So far, I believe it's Chrom, Caeda and Cain
Akchipman: Fates was shortly after.
pumpkinnecromancer: @lordofironstorm fates came out a little while after the WiiU original
Paranundrox: yeah TMS came out in 2015
Lordofironstorm: Ah, never mind then
LordShadner: so we need a 4th C? Kappa
Paranundrox: so we're strictly Awakening and earlier
drfox17: "I am thou, thou art I..."
Paranundrox: oh and Tharja
Traion: Also we don't need Camilla in this game we have Maiko to fill her "roles" .....
LadyLockwood92: Ha Ha. **The Idol business is incredibly toxic and exploitative**
Akchipman: Tharja/Lucina?
pumpkinnecromancer: @traion this is true...
Paranundrox: no Lucina
Traion: We met Tharja
Leonhart321: I am a Shadow, the true self
drfox17: @Paranundrox Vader Noooooooooooo
Lafajet: Well, we sort of saw Tharja
LadyLockwood92: Kiria has Tharja.
Lordofironstorm: PERSONA! *tears off mask*
Traion: Boob Light heals all!
Theycallmejokke: Glowy sister love power active!
TXC2: yeah "meet" is strong word for what we have of Thaja so far
jonasjonIV: back before her disastrous face tattoos!
PharaohBender27: The power of love overcomes Ayaha!
Hexy_Lexy234: this is so anime and i am here for it
vespa_amazonia: #canceled
Akchipman: *enter Magic Girl power*
samwonk: Building up self-esteem by saying you don't need to have talent as long as you look good and act cool?
Lordofironstorm: This whole game is problematic, lady
Leonhart321: This is less mask tear and more card crush
pumpkinnecromancer: It’s just so tongue and cheek about it too
Traion: @hexy_lexy234 oh this game gets way more anime, strap in
Manae: Schlorped in to a portal
TXC2: save the Sister, save the world
LadyLockwood92: I really feel like Tsubasa's sister should have been later in the game.
pumpkinnecromancer: I mean they literally meet a weeaboo
vespa_amazonia: that's a UFO jellyfish
Theycallmejokke: ouch
Lordofironstorm: Uh oh
LadyLockwood92: 'Cause she's female.
Hexy_Lexy234: @Traion there are 2 things i love in this world. Jojo level BS, and Magical Girl BS
Dandinstorm12: time to bring the beats
Leonhart321: For the same reason Touma isnt @red_shoes_jeff
GapFiller: Hexy_Lexy234 and when yr combine the two?
pumpkinnecromancer: @red_shoes_jeff basically because we’re supposed to watch from the point of view of a supporter
Lafajet: @red_shoes_jeff I would argue she is, from a narrative perspective
Orgmastron: @red_shoes_jeff Because that's not what cishet males want according to marketing executives
Theycallmejokke: Holly molly that worked
angryoptimist: Let's go Cicada! Kappa
Hexy_Lexy234: @GapFiller luckily, Jojo's is basically a "magical girl" anime :P
vespa_amazonia: well! tables turned
Paranundrox: she's definitely the protagonist, but not the PC
pumpkinnecromancer: Yeah I’m pretty sure Robin fulfilled a similar role in awakening
Traion: Wind I guess from FE
red_shoes_jeff: We have those axes to throw.
Lafajet: In as much as the part drives the plot forward, it's done by the different party members but mostly Tsubasa
drfox17: either that, or arrows
Paranundrox: yeah in FE Pegasus units are weak to Arrows and Wind
LadyLockwood92: But Robin and Chrom are both the protagonist of Awakening
Lafajet: Most often things seem to happen TO them though
pumpkinnecromancer: Axes and arrows won’t session for a looong time tet
Paranundrox: yup
drfox17: [leans over] "Hey! Hey Shamir, can you take care of this one for us?"
Akchipman: @ladylockwood92 As well as Lucina as the supp9rt protagonist
Dandinstorm12: lrrGOAT
pumpkinnecromancer: @ladylockwood92 and Itsuki and Tsubasa are both protagonists of TMSFE. Heroes even recently acknowledged that.
Traion: We can't afford Shamir's fee @drfox17 ;)
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, but Itsuki has so little reason to be here though...
jonasjonIV: if only....there was a way to use words...but not talk....
pumpkinnecromancer: Again it’s from the point of view of a supporter
Lafajet: Itsuki has a weird role of just enabling the rest of the party to do their things
GapFiller: ah selective intelligence
pumpkinnecromancer: It’s like the producer in the idolm@ster series
Manae: One more, with feeling
Lafajet: Itsuki put all his points into EQ
Manae: once, that is
Akchipman: Plot intelligence, gotta love it!
Traion: Itsuki fills the same role as Tidus, or the crappy kid from FF12. Person that is not needed but only here because the focus groups wanted him
angryoptimist: Is Itsuki a plot-idiot-savant, perhaps?
sorceress966: DND wisdom v intelligence
drfox17: now sing us the song of your people Tsubasa
pumpkinnecromancer: The producer in the idolm@ster series doesn’t do crap or even show up, but is still the player character and protagonist.
accountmadeforants: Tsubasa! Doot as you please!
LadyLockwood92: Barry still sucks.
Leonhart321: Look the only song that can do that was lost long ago.....this is just a tribute
Traion: I think the song of Tsubasa's people is just a Kiria cover :P
TXC2: "with the mighty power of boob glow, you can accomplish anything!"
drfox17: Tsubasa procedes to play Edge of Dawn on a kazoo
NojhLivic: I'm getting so many vibes to the Macross series, where idols are considered one of the best anti-war weapons, stronger than the transformable mecha that protect them.
KinoGami: this was dlc
ArcOfTheConclave: So momentos?
pumpkinnecromancer: In a sense
Akchipman: so idolasphere = dungeon?
Traion: 31 texts. This fills up faster than my email
pumpkinnecromancer: Yup
accountmadeforants: Mementos: The flesh taker!
Ritaspirithntr: This was a purchasable DLC In the WiiU version!!
Leonhart321: No alcohol siiiiigh
KinoGami: the new thing they add is the EX-Dungeon
pumpkinnecromancer: @leonhart321 that’s reserved for maiko
pumpkinnecromancer: Tiki btw is at her cutest in this game <3
Lordofironstorm: Special grinding dungeon?
TXC2: Akchipman it's what she does
LadyLockwood92: Like...the whole Big Bro thing was cute when Nanako did it in Persona 4, Tiki doing it is creepy...
accountmadeforants: Akchipman Trust me, Kathleen tried to stop her.
Traion: @akchipman Japan and creeps is why
RatekStormcrow: Dont eat books
ChaoticObserver: @Lordofironstorm Basically
KinoGami: because she used to call touma big brother, then tsubasa calls him out on it, so tiki asks to call itsuki big brother instead
Paranundrox: basically one dungeon drops EXP items and one drops Carnage Mastery items
pumpkinnecromancer: She did it with Marth too in the original games
Akchipman: Cool. Another weird thing of Japan culture that I hate.
angryoptimist: Detritus? So we recycle for stat coupons?
Lafajet: Special training really isn't necessary if you go through the main game at a reasonable encounter rate
heretic_cathar: I love how stylish the game looks. Definitely looks a lot like a modern Persona game
Lordofironstorm: "Don't overlevel, kids!"
Mcgwee: oh megaten 4 had these
ArcOfTheConclave: @angryoptimist correct
PharaohBender27: @Akchipman Like @accountmadeforants , lrrKATHLEEN tried to stop her: https://clips.twitch.tv/SmellyDistinctPepperoniBatChest
drfox17: Tiki: "did you bring me performa? I'm huuuungry"
LadyLockwood92: Don't get me wrong, I find kid Tiki creepy as she is.
Territan: You can always tell someone who's familiar with a game. "Dialog, dialog, dialog, dialog, dialog, dialog... wait, weren't those last three different?"
Paranundrox: Chrom about to drop a new EP(ee)
Frypod1077: Get equipped with Epeen!
pumpkinnecromancer: Extended Play
ContingentCat: katesLewd
newstous: That... is not an Epee
Mr_Horrible: sooOOOO Epee
Lordofironstorm: An epee (ep-ay) is a fencing sword
TXC2: when do we get a foil? Kappa
Territan: And "epeen" is NOT its plural.
Merathax subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 7 months!
Merathax: I haven't caught up with the VOD yet, but just wanted to say you're doing a great job with this stream in general. Not easy to follow up after FF7, but you're doing a great job with this game I had never heard of before
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Merathax! (Today's storm count: 21)
drfox17: I've been stabbed by a epee. that looks so much worse
Mr_Horrible: I mean, his falchion isn't a falchion either :p
red_shoes_jeff: @newstous I have some bad news about the Falchion.
pumpkinnecromancer: Some of these weapons do look pretty cool
LadyLockwood92: Like the whole 'Looks like a little girl but is actually 1000 years old so her wearing barely anything is totally fine' thing makes me ludicrously angry and uncomfortable.
Lafajet: Don't get too attached to the names and models matching chat, it will only lead to sadness
TXC2: Territan of course not, it's epeeodes Kappa
Akchipman: Thanks for the clip. I hate that game did that.
NojhLivic: I love how adroable she makes the word Carnage sound
Paranundrox: you trade Electric for Wind, and get new skills too
Paranundrox: yeah it's a neat system
Paranundrox: Sonorous Baritone
pumpkinnecromancer: She’s just baby. There’s no romance in this game.
pumpkinnecromancer: I mean they’re idols so.
Ritaspirithntr: If you hold/spam the “B” button you skip most if not all of Tiki’s exhaustive dialogue.
matleigh35: is this the wiiu or the switch version?
Paranundrox: X fast-forwards dialogue as well
pumpkinnecromancer: Switch
angryoptimist: When you can feel someone's voice, it's less a sound and more a shockwave. Kappa
Akchipman: switch
NojhLivic: Wait so we can't date Tomou?
DarkMorford: Hey chat, who's more long-winded? Tiki or Saharah? Kappa
Paranundrox: Saharah :P
Traion: Tsubasa's body mass is like 70% chest she looks so ridiculous
pumpkinnecromancer: The owl from LoZ @darkmorford
Lordofironstorm: lol
Paranundrox: I had that thought when I went outside and a butterfly flew past me
Paranundrox: but my thought was "oh I've caught that one already"
pumpkinnecromancer: This music tho
Hexy_Lexy234: speaking of Animal Crossing, does anyone have any bamboo trees they can pass on to me?
Paranundrox: yeah the enemy difficulty increases over time
Paranundrox: and you get most of your item drops in here via Session chains
drfox17: I keep forgetting about those horse ears she has!
Traion: @hexy_lexy234 LRRcord is your friend
TXC2: !discord
LRRbot: LRR has an official Discord server! You can join here: https://discord.gg/lrr
Hexy_Lexy234: thx, friend :)
Akchipman: Chrom looks weird...
DarkMorford: Something something cleavage joke?
drfox17: it's like she's Fire Emblem Equestria Girls in that outfit
vespa_amazonia: @drfox17 cursed, thanks
Traion: I would watch that show @drfox17
Paranundrox: basically, you want to be maximizing Session Chains in combats in here
accountmadeforants: That's a really weird way to pick something off the ground, Itsuki.
pumpkinnecromancer: @drfox17 i mean she’s a Pegasus knight. Could be worse, she could turn into a minetaur.
TXC2: I don't know, the ass is a powerful clamping muscle Kappa
pumpkinnecromancer: Anyhow gotta go

Paranundrox: Tomes are a use item, that give a certain amount of exp on use
pumpkinnecromancer: See ya! Break a leg! (Haha... showbiz humour)
Lordofironstorm: lrrSPOOP
drfox17: @Traion "Rainbow Dash learned Galeforce! Oh nooooo"
Countzeroor: Is the game trolling us?
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a community, not a casino.
Manae: They're going to one-shot you if they don't miss, aren't they?
Rhonlore: agi and zio only i think
TXC2: these things remind me of the aliens from Fifth element
Paranundrox: you probably want to get out of the dungeon after this fight though, to reset the enemy level
Lordofironstorm: These are some tanky boys
vespa_amazonia: okay tsubasa's finger-gun animation is cute
Traion: You get money from sessions at least
Paranundrox: every 3rd session chain you're getting an item drop
Paranundrox: sometimes Yen sometimes Tomes
Paranundrox: I don't recall if it's every chain after the 3rd?
TXC2: lrrGOAT
Traion: I think so Para
Paranundrox: it disappeared
LadyLockwood92: Huh... Tsubasa's level up sprite doesn't have blue hair.
Ritaspirithntr: The longer you stay there, the more powerful the enemies become!
NoTomToLose: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:35:12.
Paranundrox: you might want to leave
drfox17: @LadyLockwood92 yeah, i noticed that
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! Where is circle?
Paranundrox: Gold Bars are for selling
PenguinMortified: eat it
Lordofironstorm: That's some mad dosh right there
TXC2: GLOD!
Paranundrox: they're like 10k?
Traion: It conducts electricity?
LadyLockwood92: It's a chocolate bar
Paranundrox: the enemies scale with time
drfox17: @LoadingReadyRun well Kathleen, sometimes you just wanna take some one to the GOLD BAR
Lordofironstorm: Ohhh boy
ArcOfTheConclave: run?
jonnykefka: time to leave!
red_shoes_jeff: Jack, NO!
PharaohBender27: katesScared
Traion: Run?
vespa_amazonia: i don't like these at all!
Akchipman: We did say to leave.
GDwarf: Exciting!
LadyLockwood92: Skellington
Theycallmejokke: Run away!
Fracaswell: cheese it!
Orgmastron: Time to go!
TXC2: well we're boned
Paranundrox: also that door has enemies that are like level 54 or something
LadyLockwood92: How Spoopy
bainard656: Forgot the part about mobs scaling when you fight them?
LordShadner: traport?
novrdd: spoopy room
jonnykefka: time for a goho-M or a traport
Paranundrox: so Tomes are a use item and Gold Bars are for selling
Paranundrox: Tomes just give you a bunch of exp, probably one level per Tome at this stage
Ritaspirithntr: Welp! You stayed there too long!
drfox17: Tiki: "any more performa for me to munch on?"
vespa_amazonia: but no consequences hooray!
Traion: These teenagers are awakening all kinds of performance parts of their body Kappa
BrindleBoar: I mean if this is Fire Emblem then they're weapons?
LadyLockwood92: I'm really enjoying Kathleen's playthrough...but every time Tiki shows up it kinda makes my skin craw...
LadyLockwood92: crawl*
SquareDotCube: tomies my homies
accountmadeforants: Poggies my doggies. Tomies my homies.
monocman770: Pour one out for the dead tomies.
goatprince: [the tomies have been shouted out]
LadyLockwood92: Tomies for the homies
Paranundrox: they now need a fight to level
drfox17: maybe just dip out for a fight?
LadyLockwood92: Oh great...they've added Barry to the pause menu...

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Therberus! (Today's storm count: 25)
Paranundrox: especially later on when you might need them more
Traion: @accountmadeforants we got 11 in a couple minutes. Not worth the time to minmax them
Theycallmejokke: That was more bullying than a real fight :D
Paranundrox: and they get easier to get as you have longer chains
monocman770: Nicklewise!
Ritaspirithntr: Since Tomes are consumable items, you can also use them in the training space!
novrdd: omg that enemy design is super terifiying
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That appears to be some sort of sidewalk slam.
Therberus: Wait is that the fire emblem level up noise ?
Paranundrox: yes
accountmadeforants: Traion Paranundrox Fair enough.
LadyLockwood92: It is
Theycallmejokke: :D
Paranundrox: @accountmadeforants later on instead of getting like 11 in a few minutes you can get like 30. It scales pretty favorably
BoblinTheGoblin69: i dont remember this fe map
Diabore: thats why hes texting, he wants attention
heretic_cathar: What are the Fire Emblem influences in this game?
LadyLockwood92: Kathleen "Extremely Efficient" De Vere
Lordofironstorm: "OMG Itsuki! We're fighting monsters! Send text"
SquareDotCube: Samantha is weak to cheese-its, probably
newstous: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You are being very aggressive, I'm going to need you to simmer down.
accountmadeforants: Paranundrox Wew, I hope there's a "use multiple" option, then.
Theycallmejokke: Power leveling for the win
Ritaspirithntr: @boblinthegoblin69 it was a buyable DLC in the WiiU game that was freely included in the Definitive Edition
accountmadeforants: The enemies have been drinking their Ovaltine, they grow strong!
heretic_cathar: So the battle system is SMT, with a few FE story elements?
Theycallmejokke: yes
Paranundrox: @accountmadeforants when you select it you can just keep feeding teammates Tomes until they're all maxed out, just by spamming A. It's quite nice
drfox17: "Itsuki, these monsters feel like thick wet send tweet"
Ritaspirithntr: At most 2 tomes per party member will level them up
drfox17: Who gave Tiki a cell phone!
Graham_LRR: Wait, is that enemy name “nickelwise”
Paranundrox: Yup!
PharaohBender27: YOU'RE RIGHT THERE, TIKI
Ritaspirithntr: Yup!
LadyLockwood92: Damn it Tiki! I am right here! Who gave you a phone?!
vespa_amazonia: personally i feel "poundfool" would have been better
TXC2: Graham_LRR sure is
Paranundrox: those messages were from awhile ago
PharaohBender27: @vespa_amazonia katesLol
jonasjonIV: silly gen Z, texting in the same room.
Lordofironstorm: There needs to be a "Mark All as Read" button
ArcOfTheConclave: @heretic_cathar the weapon triangle from fe is part of the weakness/resistance mechanic.
Akchipman: Hi, Graham. And yes, it's 5x as expensive as a pennywise
ContingentCat: teenagers and their phones
Paranundrox: you can hold A down to go faster
LadyLockwood92: Oh god...
GapFiller: Graham_LRR yes and thinking now its a wonder that slipped thru
silenceaux: This is what happens when you turn on notifications for all of your Discord channels
gualdhar: sexy *drunk* bunny. not suggestive at all.
Lordofironstorm: Of course TIki has her own custom emojis
Ritaspirithntr: Just spam “A” they’re not important except for an Achievement that’s literally for ignoring them!
drfox17: Tiki is now learning about twitter
LadyLockwood92: Because Maiko's only character trait is 'Sexy'
Paranundrox: She tells when you've unlocked stuff, yeah
Paranundrox: I'm sad that Kathleen skips all of Itsuki's beverage notes
Traion: @ladylockwood92 hey she has two character traits Kappa
Paranundrox: it's his only characterization! :P
vespa_amazonia: is this clerk okay
EvilBadman: avac adoo
drfox17: @vespa_amazonia No. No she is not
red_shoes_jeff: But, but avacado's not for DRINKING! IT'S FOR TOAST!
LadyLockwood92: !sir

LadyLockwood92: !badadvice
LRRbot: Sleep with the gun!
drfox17: Beej's patently stupid answer is in the advice prompt now!?
Akchipman: !sir
red_shoes_jeff: Why, do the original accessories become important later?
ifritleviathan: Selling gold for cash how very cash money of you
vespa_amazonia: when you sold tsubasa's original equip, did it change her character model accordingly? seemed like it did
Lordofironstorm: "We eating the $5 instant ramen tonight, boys!"
Drew_64: "everyone's dying....better get the good ramen"
Orgmastron: I have like 3 million or something ridiculous like that in my playthrough
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You can't understand; you're not sailors.
red_shoes_jeff: Right there.
LadyLockwood92: Not Anna too!
Traion: iirc Melmarks get better later so keep them
drfox17: give anna some money, it'll cheer her up
vespa_amazonia: oh cause they're all in the middle of a performa drain zone i guess
vespa_amazonia: i thought it was just the effects of working retail

drfox17: it's the reason play it forward exists
PharaohBender27: Man, Barry Goodman's just straight up snoring on the menu screen
RatekStormcrow: I want a persona with 30 hours of gameplay ...
TXC2: ifritleviathan stay strong friend
GapFiller: Play It Forward IS a Long Play Stream
Walkingharder: 50 hours is about right
Traion: @ifritleviathan draaaaaaaft iiiiiit
LadyLockwood92: I hate Barry. Barry is the worst.
Frypod1077: @ifritleviathan I cracked my draft set of the convention exclusives and they were worth it
Talin06: more Kathleen more better
Drew_64: Barry is awful
drfox17: Tiki only has one number in her phone, and i just learning now texting works
Traion: Just ignore the texts
Theycallmejokke: This if why you don't give four year olds mobils
Lordofironstorm: TIki just found out how hashtags work and she's experiemtning
accountmadeforants: ifritleviathan Give Winston draft a shot?
odamadillo: Kathleen is one of my favourite lrr members. it is always fun to watch her streams.
drfox17: Soon Tiki's gonna just be taking photos of her performa meals
vespa_amazonia: unicycle knight!
ifritleviathan: @accountmadeforants with who?
vespa_amazonia: hahahaha
drfox17: "Look at my sourdough performa starter"
hunkajunk: I didn't know we were playing Dangest Dungeon.
LadyLockwood92: 'Not now Tiki! I'm dungeoneering!
Lordofironstorm: That girl has a Tom Nook staff
accountmadeforants: ifritleviathan Ah, sorry, figured it was a case of not enough people. Not, no MTG people.
PharaohBender27: @Lordofironstorm Oh wow, you're right
Paranundrox: yeah it's just "kill these 3 types of enemies"
Paranundrox: most of the time by the time you've found her, you've beat those enemies
PharaohBender27: Did Itsuki just say, "Darth Vader"?
Theycallmejokke: It's my head cannon that he did now
DarkMorford: @PharaohBender27 Almost certainly not, but I wasn't paying attention to hear what it was.
jasaria: I think Purple means it's complete?
red_shoes_jeff: I think you had some stuff for that quest already.
LordShadner: you might have had most of what she wanted before talking
Orgmastron: Purple means you've met the requirements to complete it

GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:56:24.

drfox17: @TXC2 Fire Emblem joke, since the 'nun' class can use axes
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You and the horse are now bound/friends for life.
TXC2: drfox17 ah, I see
drfox17: Tiki: "Check out this Performa Karage I made! #foodie"
Traion: Clearly not being in a sentai outfit weakens Touma
Lordofironstorm: Useless? Come one, it's not like he's Itsuki or something
Graham_LRR: @loadingreadyrun take your time 👍🏻
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:58:34.
odamadillo: Touma is the only character that is tolerable.
Paranundrox: it's more noticeable later on
Paranundrox: when you have like a 12+ chain
LadyLockwood92: Touma is great~
Ritaspirithntr: The speedy sessions isn’t noticable until you get like, oh, 8 more people!
LordShadner: now backtracking for unity isn't so bad
Lordofironstorm: Like, if there were a game with the Atlus art, combat, and dungeon design teams; but another company's writing team, that would be an amazing JRPG
DarkMorford: This dungeon is actually kind of a nifty puzzle mechanic.
Paranundrox: the game is good about giving you predictable warp points
vespa_amazonia: @Lordofironstorm fully agreed
Paranundrox: which is nice for exploration and exiting dungeons
Taylorton147: hey gang
LadyLockwood92: 'Not now Tiki! Map!!'
LadyLockwood92: The writing in this game is just making me pine for Three Houses and it's nuance...

vespa_amazonia: detritus! now in handy pill form
Lordofironstorm: Is that a pill full of popcorn?
Traion: But Kathleen what if stream forever?
LordShadner: it's detritus, so garbage in pill form
LordShadner: I guess
Paranundrox: yeah you can exchange Detritus for useful items later in the game
drfox17: looking cool touma?
GapFiller: Kathleen isnt the 24 hr strem type
Paranundrox: there's a ghost that collects garbage, basically
LadyLockwood92: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a restricted area.
Mysticman89: Alas, the warm glow of a monitor does not provide nutriets.
GapFiller: she might be the only Crew whos never then that kind of super long single strem
hunkajunk: What if we got you lunch delivered, would you stream forever? :P
Lordofironstorm: He's got a THICC HP bar
LadyLockwood92: !badadvice
LRRbot: Lubricate your Lego before beginning the process.
GapFiller: it feels this kind of goading which works so well w/ some of the other Crew doesnt work on Kathleen

Traion: Maybe Penelope wants some mommy time today too
hunkajunk: I was kidding, sorry if it came off pushy. However much you would like to stream is perfectly ok.
GapFiller: like James x Adam can absolutely be taunted into doing longer strems on the fly
drfox17: "What is good in life" "Well, there's sumia....
GapFiller: Kathleen seems more sensible
LordShadner: unless you want to continue
TXC2: Traport, 'cause we just had to save that whole 2 letters :P
beginningtofade: well if there's a cutscene, we must continue!
LadyLockwood92: Sup homeslice?
Traion: Kathleen's dialogue makes Tiki way better
Manae: I mean, technically you DO fight a lot
Paranundrox: he mostly just shouts "enemy nearby"
drfox17: two female characters, talking about a 3rd female character? i think that counts
Invitare: you fight other things tough
Paranundrox: and that's about it
meowzhuxi: I mean Tsubasa and Ayaha's dialogue pretty definitively passes the Bechdel test
LadyLockwood92: Big Brain Conspiracy take, they took the two letters out of Trapper so they wouldn't have to put the word 'Trans' in their game.
LadyLockwood92: Trapper*
LadyLockwood92: Goddamn it Phone!
vespa_amazonia: Traport?
LadyLockwood92: Yes.
drfox17: Tiki: "sweet, now go get me pocky"
viridimayai: Nooo my FE references!
TXC2: I was thinking teleport :P
LadyLockwood92: I mean, at least this way Chrom doesn't remember getting stabbed by his closest confidante/wife.
ArcOfTheConclave: Chrom as an Uta-loid?
drfox17: Tiki: "Can you get me some Mountain Dew and Doritos while you're out?"
Traion: TMS with King Giz as the party? There are enough of them
GapFiller: hot take King Gizz are fine but personally theres always been other bands that do that better
Wicker_Knight: @GapFiller Heresy :P
drfox17: @LadyLockwood92 It's probably best he doesn't remember that his daughter is way more popular than he is
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Don't let lrrKATHLEEN hear you say that!
red_shoes_jeff: There is? Why weren't we doing THAT?
LadyLockwood92: @drfox17 That too.
accountmadeforants: GapFiller Fair
ContingentCat: Remind yourself by spending all day listening to King Gizz's library
Traion: I'm enjoying the King Giz rewrite
PharaohBender27: I was just kidding with @GapFiller there :P
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 what is life w/out risk? and what is risk but not arguing abt musical tastes
accountmadeforants: That face O_O
LadyLockwood92: Tiki...close your mouth.
LordShadner: did her face freeze?
drfox17: Tiki: "can you get me some HB sauce for this performa?"
TXC2: "insert toast here"
jonasjonIV: lrrCIRCLE lrrCIRCLE lrrCIRCLE
Lordofironstorm: "I'm counting on you to send me a bunch of pointless texts, Tiki"
Ba_Dum_Tish: Feed me Itsuki
LadyLockwood92: I bet they're all from Tiki.
Theycallmejokke: So much stuff
Diabore: is that what its like to be popular? seems like hell
Lorennar: Soooo Tiki is the Yuffie of this game?
red_shoes_jeff: So THAT'S why she kept bothering us.
GapFiller: Lorennar Tiki is too young
viridimayai: What is that nightmaer clown?!?!
drfox17: @Lorennar i mean, she's not puking all the time
LadyLockwood92: In so far as she endlessly desires Materia.
ArcOfTheConclave: craft both?
GapFiller: Lorennar shes aimed at a different audience
PharaohBender27: @Lorennar I don't recall Yuffie creepily insisting on addressing Cloud as "Big Brother"
Traion: Making all weapons also reduces the running out of dungeon mess
drfox17: i mean, we're implying she's doing the opposite of puking all the time
drfox17: she's just always eating performa
Theycallmejokke: new poky stick get
Lorennar: I mean Tsubasa was apparently 15 in the first cutscene so....
Lorennar: or 13
TXC2: 13, she's 18 now
TXC2: says the game.....
malsareus: that's a very smol 13
LordShadner: 10... 13 in the US Kappa
GapFiller: 18 for legal reasons
Ritaspirithntr: Only if you have enough Performa to make all of them!!
LadyLockwood92: [18] for legal reasons.
Traion: She's 15 in the Japanese version 18 for the international iirc
Lordofironstorm: Sadly, I think the English translation aged her up
TXC2: Tsubasa was a late bloomer, but when she did... Kappa
Wicker_Knight: everyone is [LLoC] (Local Legal Age of Consent)
Lordofironstorm: and by sadly, I mean thankfully
AtomicAlchemical: "For those of you keeping score at home, the princess is now 16 and shame on you"
TXC2: Lordofironstorm sadly?
Lordofironstorm: but it's still suspect
red_shoes_jeff: TO BE FAIR, I was short as hell until like 16, then I just grew out of all controll.
Ritaspirithntr: I thought it was 16 in JPN and 18 in USA.
Xavorin: Oh hey there, friends. I just picked this up a couple nights ago to keep me occupied until the 29th.
accountmadeforants: The enemy's just called "Samantha"? Are we just gonna run into a group of enemy "Bart"s, soon?
Lordofironstorm: @TXC2 It's sad that they had to instead of her bing 18 in the original
Wicker_Knight: potentially, but it's almost certanly a play on Samara @accountmadeforants
LadyLockwood92: I just noticed her tiny shorts...now I'm upset.
DarkMorford: @LoadingReadyRun Who's more tedious to deal with, Tiki or Saharah? lrrBEEJ
red_shoes_jeff: You are.
LordShadner: oh horseslayer
Traion: 1:20 eat it!
TXC2: Lordofironstorm fair enough
