monosceros: the progenitus civilization
Mister_Skittles: i love that this is technically a one handed sword
ChrisGMiller: Ah, the before peoples. i'm with you
gek0h: the pthumerians discovered the blood of the Great Ones long before Yharnam grew from a small village into a mighty town
Malkaresh: @ChrisGMiller These are literally crypts of a fallen civilisation.
Malkaresh: Destroyed by the old Blood
Ferisar: we drank the tomb juice
TXC2: how did we get here?
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Flunge!
HorusFive: How did any of us get here, really
j30000000: sounnds like a trip
gek0h: there was a wolf and it was on fire
BrindleBoar: but it's a hallucination with loot
TXC2: sounds about right lrrbot
FinalShowFilms: It's a dream within a dream
kynelwynn: You would say, this is not your beautiful house? That is not your beautiful wife?
ChrisGMiller: @Malkaresh and the Old blood is Old Gods right, as is Elder Things?
gek0h: and then a bunch of tiny skeleton dolls
Ferisar: it would work
Malkaresh: Why are any of us in a chalice dungeion?
CompletelyUnsure: Oh, so it's Persona
Simriel: It's a hallucination, but it's also Real
Ferisar: i mean the main game is a series of hallucinations
Matt_Cowdery: Naw, the pthumerian dungeons are a physical place beneath yharnam
Ferisar: so it def fits
WiltLeafWanderer: That tracks
ashteranic: been busy for a bit. did cam get past ludwig or whoever it was ?
Malkaresh: @ChrisGMiller Correct. The blood of the Great Ones.
mystdream: one dream to another
FinalShowFilms: They are, but we're accessing them via a dream.
HalvariChan: From the Central Chalice onwards there are dead ends
Simriel: @Matt_Cowdery That doesn't mean it can't also be a hallucination that is inside of us
quasi79fu: this entire story could be seen as a metaphor of driving out the evils of sin within yourself ...Right?
Matt_Cowdery: but this also has residents of the nightmare in it, so its probably a dream about those places?
TXC2: ashteranic he sure did
gek0h: there are 4 different categories of chalices and they all represent slightly different cultures / geographic areas below yharnam or the surrounding areas
ashteranic: nice
Matt_Cowdery: Yeah, strawberry fields, nothing is real
I_Am_Clockwork: The catacombs are a tomb complex built by the Pthumerians on top of an Old One who “stayed behind”. The Berganwurth scholars spelunkers their way through and found the old one at the bottom. The Challice dungeons are a psychic echo of that story playing out in our Hunter’s dream
krfsm: have you had any opportunity to try out the beast cutter?
ashteranic: oh right, the glowy sword ludwig has. that'd be a giveaway
Ferisar: just fyi, those ranged attacks take QS
kynelwynn: L A Z E R B E A M
Mister_Skittles: you have energy waves now Cam
gek0h: probably not enough strength for the beast cutter?
ChrisGMiller: @Malkaresh Got it, just was curious at which part of the Lovecraft/Dewraith mythology this was ... near.
gek0h: oh, i'm thinking of whirligig
Makrosian_Tae: woah!
wildpeaks: umm :D
iris_of_ether: That sure was a sentence.
Driosenth: like a mosquito
j30000000: a lot of the game is someone's unconscious brung to life by an old one so it tracks
drowbard: The hitboxes on the new sword look so good
Leonhart321: If it lasts for more tha. 4 hours, consult a doctor
WiltLeafWanderer: Yours lights up?
gek0h: @ChrisGMiller the end of the DLC becomes very explicitly love craftian
wildpeaks: well that's what happens when bones home
thehokeypokey: we gem farming?
ChrisGMiller: neat!
kynelwynn: Thought the lazer was durability loss, not QS. Is it both?
Malkaresh: Also if you think building arcane is rough, I'm trying to do a bloodtinge build right now with Bloodletter (DLC) and Evelyn as the main goal. The starting game SUCKS.
Greyah: I love the light trails this sword leaves. So pretty.
gek0h: the moonbeam projectiles? they consume quicksilver bullets @kynelwynn
Mister_Skittles: there is 1 illusory wall in this entire game
Manae: It's nice to have a sword that doubles as a torch
kynelwynn: MMk
Ferisar: i think there's a way left of the room with the locked door
Leonhart321: Sadly I have to peace out now since I have work tomorrow, good luck with the bloody extractions
kynelwynn: Moonlight in DS used to just chunk its durability
Ferisar: oh or that
gek0h: there are no illusory walls in the main game and dozens of illusory walls in the pre-set chalices
Ferisar: well hey accidentally blood vial farming
Malkaresh: @ChrisGMiller This game is a Lovecraftian Matrushka nesting doll with a dollop of CHambers on top.
krfsm: mercury? you mean, liquid shiny candy?
quasi79fu: mercury is poisnous though
j30000000: as one does I mean you have to do cocaine to get the ghosts out of the blood
TXC2: Drinking Mercury, then getting super depressed, then insane?
Makrosian_Tae: what do the runes do?
Simriel: @quasi79fu So is Other Peoples Blood. Hasn't stopped us yet
Ferisar: i thought it was just mercurial
planeswalkagogo: man, I used to have a toy with mercury in it. good times
accountmadeforants: By the way Cam, Checkpoint+ should be coming up in about 5 minutes. (Unless I've missed something?)
gek0h: runes give you stat (minimal) customization
iris_of_ether: Have you seen the Mercury Toilet video by Cody's Lab? It is a wild ride. :D
BrindleBoar: yeah but if you don't drink mercury, then you won't be able to make mercury bullets with your blood
krfsm: drinking mercury was a constipation treatment back in the day
Simriel: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (3m from now).
Xafty: isnt eating/drinking mercury less an issue than you would think, like its not good to be sure, but doesnt it basically just pass through you?
Angnor33: Jabbing random vials of blood you find lying on monsters is also not good for you. Kappa
quasi79fu: there is tomb in China that is considered a toxic place because of the mercury in it..
ChrisGMiller: @Malkaresh i watched the foldablehuman video on the endings, but have never played. Kinda like 40k, i dig the lore, not the game.
Ferisar: oh yeah this guy
bokochaos: If you're feeling depressed, can I offer you some lithium?
quasi79fu: The builder of the tomb wanted silver rivers and made themout of mercury
ChrisGMiller: @Malkaresh but thanks for the clue in
TXC2: Gods I love how they handle Mercury poising in Legend of Korra
FinalShowFilms: Use your R2 charge attack from a distance
gek0h: funny how the first time you face this guy he's not a boss
hunkajunk: Cam, I have an odd question for you. I know on some of the podcasts you've talked about sitting in a quiet cafe with a pastry and a coffee, just looking outside silently as a relaxation thing. Would that sort of activity still work for you if you were accomanied by someone? not touching, not saying sanything, just sitting a few feet away also enjoying a nice beverage and pastry ?
TheMerricat: Afternoon chat, how goes the blood letting? Are the patients recovering?
GapFiller: phun phact Quicksilver (aka Mercury), Arsenic, and Cinnabar the ingredients for The Elixir of Life according to classical alchemy
Malkaresh: @ChrisGMiller I get it man. I watched videos of this for years, before I started playing. Just because I found the Lore and universe fascinating.
Matt_Cowdery: This dude is straight up using dark souls pyromancies
GapFiller: one recipe at least
Orgmastron: Secret apeshit technique! NotLikeThis
planeswalkagogo: big slops is fine
TehAmelie: have you heard this idea to put lithium in drinking water to make people happier? i can't decide if it's horrible or horribly efficient
TXC2: hello TheMerricat welcome
quasi79fu: hi merricat
gek0h: BPS is so rude, he interrupts us non stop
GapFiller: TheMerricat Cam dominated Ludwig
SquirrelLord1111: Good ol Pocket Worms
GapFiller: it was awesome
Xafty: @GapFiller so pure mercury, a mercury salt, and arsenic. fun
Notbri: That's just a deathclaw
nolessthanagod: Are you intentionally dressed like a Thraban Inspecror?
sleepscience_: I only ever fought one of the chalice bosses. Never fought that guy
Malkaresh: Uninterruptable and continous?
TXC2: Notbri huh, yeah it was :p
gek0h: chalice dungeons have some bosses that FromSoft probably decided were too annoying for the maing ame
TehAmelie: well yeah. i hope there aren't several plans to drug drinking water
Makrosian_Tae: why are we rune hunting exactly? what are they for?
thehokeypokey: most of these chalice bosses are pretty boring
gek0h: upcoming stream at 2?
Simriel: Checkpoint + is scheduled to be on in 2 minutes btw :P
planeswalkagogo: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (42s from now).
Xafty: depends on what you mean by "drug" cause we add a lot of stuff to drinking water for reasons
Notbri: @Makrosian_Tae Fun and Sport!
Ferisar: hahaha
iris_of_ether: :D
j30000000: have a good one cam
thehokeypokey: I think the last one is cool though
MrVirite: oopsy
Notbri: Whoops!
TXC2: thanks for streaming Cameron

TXC2: Goodnight Everybody
PharaohBender27: Goodnight, @TXC2 ! PrideWave
beowuuf: night txc2
PharaohBender27: So, since I missed that whole stream, how long did it take lrrCAMERON to put that damn horse down?
PadawanTK16: I’m wondering the same thing
accountmadeforants: PharaohBender27 'bout half the stream.
Ferisar: i think he downed him about an hour ago
Raiz0k: Hello!
Makrosian_Tae: damn
Manae: About two hours today
drowbard: He got it around an hour ago?
beowuuf: i thinj some of us blinked and he beat it, but over an hour and a half, i need to go back and see the successful run
HorusFive: It was past the 2hr mark, right? I am also going back to find it as soon as the VOD clears
Bronzefinger subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 78 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Bronzefinger! (Today's storm count: 20)
Ferisar: it was a fairly clean victory
Makrosian_Tae: is it that hard?
Ferisar: though he was fully out of vials
Ferisar: yeah if you're doing ludwig with a just okay build he can be very challenging
Raiz0k: Hard boss for Cam on Bloodborne?
PharaohBender27: So I guess he decided to stream today just so Ludwig would be out of the way by the weekend?
beowuuf: phase 2 cheat attack didn't help!
Raiz0k: (well "harder", this is a FromSoft game)
beowuuf: *cheap
HorusFive: I'm happy he got past it. I was a little uncomfortable watching Cam get more and more disheartened.
PharaohBender27: @Raiz0k Very. He literally spent all of yesterday's stream unsuccessfully trying to beat it
Manae: He streamed last Friday, too, though that was due to shooting Monday. Maybe he just wanted to continue the streak
PharaohBender27: @HorusFive Same
Ferisar: sometimes we go through pain to get where we wanna go, so it's ok
Ferisar: cam picks up what the game puts down pretty quickly
TehAmelie: i know fluoridated water is good cause people can't afford to go to the dentist, but i have this funny idea more accessible mental health care would be preferable to making everyone take psychopharmaca
PharaohBender27: So, those of us who are watching Checkpoint: We all did our homework, right?
Raiz0k: Of course!
PixelArtDragon: Shit, there was homework?
Jeezy56: I did this week
wildpeaks: an eldrich dog ate my homework
HorusFive: No. But I have a good excuse. I'm very lazy
EightBitDreams: Checkpoint *is* my homework...
beowuuf: it's almost like mental chemistry is far more delicate than enamel and so giving people drugs can do horrible things if it's a blanket dose to everyone
GapFiller: again
PixelArtDragon: Quick, can I copy off someone?
PharaohBender27: @PixelArtDragon lrrHEATHER said a few weeks ago that watching the Checkpoint episode was "homework" for Chillpoint
TehAmelie: yes, that
PharaohBender27: lrrSIGNAL !
Raiz0k: *There's* the audio.
accountmadeforants: So, it was actually only about 40 minutes from the end of the stream:
GapFiller: actually tbf we did go offline today
PixelArtDragon: @PharaohBender27 Oh good, I did it then.
GapFiller: unlike yesterday
CastleOtranto: Haha, I thought I'd accidentally started an episode of Road Quest.
Raiz0k: That's one of them good accidents.
kusinohki: @CastleOtranto would that be so bad though?
GapFiller: seeing the actual sausage being made w/ Cam swapiing out for Adam was a hilarious highlight tho
TheMerricat: On the other hand @TehAmelie they used to include Lithium in 7-up so.....
CastleOtranto: I do have an episode up in another tab, actually.
GapFiller: presumably we sadly wont get to see the further highlight of Heather giving the paif od them the gears over that Kappa
beowuuf: we've seen swapping differnt studios before when checkpoint and lrrmtg used to blend together
PharaohBender27: If I'd realized lrrCAMERON was streaming today, I'd have been there to see him finally gain sweet victory
frnknstn: Stream still titled bloodborne here
GapFiller: frnknstn and?
TheMerricat: And while it's not a huge amount, most people have been getting a small amount of lithium in their water naturally. So it's not as if this is one of those _completely_ off the wall ideas. Just a bit off the wall.
Manae: @PharaohBender27 I had to go pick my wife up from work and got back to see him getting the sword from the defeated boss
beowuuf: themerricat: is there a carbonated drink that didn't used to casually include hard drugs for fun?
GapFiller: TheMerricat mmm delicious lithium
TehAmelie: for fun? ha. they used to give babies morphine to make them quiet
TheMerricat: LOL @beowuuf Well Mountain Dew didn't though it was meant to be a chaser for moonshine.
PixelArtDragon: @TehAmelie How much would it cost for a municipal-wide supply? Lithium is a lot more expensive than flouride
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : weren't there some sensationalist articles about trace Prozac in the water across the US about 15-20 years ago?
TehAmelie: good question
beowuuf: themerricat: lol, as long as someone showed restraint back in the day :p
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Chillpoint! Hang out with Heather, Beej and Paul and chat about this week's gaming news! ||
GapFiller: we shd as a society be thankful nobody ever thought to put crack in the water
Manae: @Raiz0k there were articles a few months ago about mass pharmaceuticals in waterways nationwide
Manae: And drugs in Florida, hence Meth Gators jokes
TehAmelie: baby drops, usually made with a mixture of cocaine, opium, laudanum, morphine or maybe heroin, if not all
Raiz0k: @GapFiller : given the Cold War experiments *that we know of*, I'm not so sure.
Raiz0k: Ah yeah, old timey drugs, a little bit of everything.
LordZarano: LSD in the water, maybe
Lithobraker: just got here, what are we talking about the re: cold war?
GapFiller: Raiz0k yeh it feels that wd be one way of getting people ready for war enmass
EightBitDreams: Wake up sheeple! They are putting Dihydrogen monoxide in your water!
TehAmelie: lrrSIGNAL
GapFiller: LordZarano we can only wish theyd put acid in the water
Raiz0k: As in, die peacefully @GapFiller xD?
snailkane: Evening!
wildpeaks: always has been
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k yes, mostly due to improper disposal from my understanding, I'm not sure the trace was ever enough for folk to consider it biologically impactful, just enough to wake everyone up to the idea that maybe flushing it all down the toilet was a bad idea
Scy_Anide: The frogs were inside us all along and the fractions were the friends we made along the way.
beowuuf: beej's hair is finally achieving A Look
TehAmelie: the trouble with LSD is you become temporarily immune after taking it for three days
CastleOtranto: I'm merely Frog Addition
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker Talk about addidatives in the water, such as fluoride. Some people in chat have opinions
keroan0: Schrodinger's Fractions
GapFiller: good evening lrrPAUL P lrrBEEEJ B lrrHEATHER H lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
Raiz0k: Oh, @LoadingReadyRun : huuuge props for the excellently hermetic joke in the recorded episode!
beowuuf: arg
kusinohki: why would anyone want fractional frogs?
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat So if I take antidepressants, where am I supposed to pee?
wildpeaks: MMOARG
InkyGhoast: hoi
niccus: fractionally good
TheMerricat: lol @PharaohBender27
GapFiller: tangent liking the Spike Spiegel hair Beej

Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : yeah, hence "sensationalist". And +1 on the side effect.
beowuuf: props to the 'welcome to the jungle' riff at the top of the episode btw :)
Raiz0k: You could even say Frog Fractions is a Multimedia™ experience (remember that label?).
niccus: which sequel
beowuuf: it took me a stupid amlount of time to find out about the secret....i played it straight for so long...
beowuuf: (the first one)
GapFiller: yr they played it onstrem onetime iirc
Stoffern: Playing Frog Fractions 2 would be hard at this point...
TheMerricat: Frog Fractions, 2, or 3?
GapFiller: G and Cori
Raiz0k: The real Frog Fractions was the friends we made along the way.
BigFMonster: good to know i have that bundle but only played like 4 games from it
PharaohBender27: @Raiz0k I'm having flashbacks to game announcements almost a decade ago
Scy_Anide: Since you reminded me about it, I just installed Frog Fractions along with the DLC.
frnknstn: Glittermitten Grove isn't even a terrible little game on the cover
Raiz0k: You're welcome xD.
LarkSachrosis: Stormdancer is a much better name.
kusinohki: stormdancer sounds like a magic card
Raiz0k: Spoooiled foreveeer.
Raiz0k: It does.
beowuuf: until the secret was out
accountmadeforants: Honestly, most people wouldn't be able to play any proper Frog Fractions game without people "spoiling" the gimmicks.
PixelArtDragon: *pidgeon meme* Is this... a Frog Fractions sequel?
beowuuf: that was a wild arg from what little i heard of it
beowuuf: it was a wild level of trust

accountmadeforants: People would find out immediately, tokens are much thinner.
kusinohki: cards that say something different under black light?
niccus: so that's why foils keep bending
Juliamon: Tokens use different cardstock
Raiz0k: Another idea: lemon juice.
NarishmaReborn: it would be hilarious
KeirenH: Cards against humanity hid cards in stuff I think
beowuuf: mystery booster then turns out you can redeem the cards for the real art version of the cards as they are legal
TheMerricat: @Lithobraker nah, the actual part I came in at was the end of Cam's stream and @TehAmelie was mentioning that recently scientists were suggesting putting lithium in the water supply to 'make people happy' and pointing out how much of a bad idea that sounded, I posted the article about it and played devils advocate pointing out that a lot of people have been getting small amounts of lithium in their water supply naturally and it use to be an additive to 7-up.
Phosphatide: what if the adhesive is too strong seabatUseless
pyrelight: this blacklight will make your deck ILLEGAL! muahahahahhahah
LarkSachrosis: You'd get to see just how grimy your opponent is.
TheMerricat: @Lithobraker I think you came in around that point.
niccus: unstable had the unannounced variants of the same card
Aarek: @KeirenH yeah one of the boxes had a card you had to literally cut out of the box
Raiz0k: Ah, thanks for the original context TheMerricat .
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, the Unstable variants were a serious surprise.
beowuuf: godzilla alt arts is the most recent weirdest that sounded like awind up
Earthenone: pokemon has a card you can only get by winning a rock paper scissors tornament in japan
NojhLivic: Even before the internet, magazines and hobbiest published lists.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Oh, I missed that context. I thought @TehAmelie was saying that it would be better to invest in mental health than fluoridate water
Raiz0k: Unstable, Unglued etc. was excellent.
Scy_Anide: "So intricate that you'll always see new cards" is code for "convoluted".
beowuuf: very cryptic command was such a troll
wildpeaks: and "always has more cards to sell you"
GapFiller: speaking of Garfield whatever happened to that other CCG that was meant to be his pure original vision of MtG?
pyrelight: but beej, that's been done, Cheatyface :D
LarkSachrosis: Munchkin'd rules are a mess *by design* though.
niccus: and the playtest subset had the permanently alterable legacy crds
TehAmelie: i did talk about fluoride at the same time so i can see the confusion
KeirenH: there are also at least a couple un-cards that require you to destroy them when played
Juliamon: !card armchair
LRRbot: Entirely Normal Armchair | Artifact | During your turn, if Entirely Normal Armchair is in your hand, you may hide it on the battlefield. / {0}: Return Entirely Normal Armchair to its owner's hand. Only any opponent may activate this ability and only if they see Entirely Normal Armchair. / {2}, Sacrifice Entirely Normal Armchair: Destroy target attacking creature.
Raiz0k: Ah, yes, Munchkin is like BDSM - you have to have a group that's on board with the general things that can transpire.
EvilBadman: The real game of Munchkin doesn't start until someone is about to win
kusinohki: I forget the name of the CCG that was spy themed. you could play cards face down illegally... but maybe get caught
TheMerricat: To be fair to the scientists as well, they weren't aiming to 'make people happy' but they had noticed that appearently it reduced suicides attempts when they added it to water supplies
Earthenone: @GapFiller its called artifact, i think all it really managed to do was change the name of the most recent masters set
beowuuf: cheatyface - less avenues to cheat with it than people think :p
kdevine7800: Spycraft?
GapFiller: Earthenone not nothin at least eh
kdevine7800: I know you could bluff in Netrunner
pyrelight: yeah, i remember reading someone made a commander deck that was solely had proxies for the deck, and hiding underneath EVERY proxy was a cheatyface.
Raiz0k: @EvilBadman : especially when everyone is *theoretically* two-three levels down. It then gets hilarious.
kusinohki: spycraft is a very good guess... probably it
beowuuf: an illegal commanfder deck :p
accountmadeforants: "Normal" Frog Fractions and Glittermitten Grove are perfectly decent (albeit somewhat boring) games, yeah.

PharaohBender27: The way that quote "flowed" reminded me of an oral history, the transcript of which I'm audit/editing (making sure the transcript actually reflects the audio), and this one guy totally had a habit of changing direction mid-sentence or doing asides, which translates very poorly to the page
EvilBadman: @Dared00 That wasn't on Xbox though. ;)
Raiz0k: BTW, why did we get the worst parts of Cyberpunk in 2020? Where's my jack?
EightBitDreams: Worse was they said they were adding Sony-exclusive challenges as well
TheMerricat: @Dared00 was that game released before or after the movie studio Sony got into such bad financial straits?
EightBitDreams: Those aren't tied to the character
Stoffern: Sony very clearly owns the video game rights too...they made that actual Spider-man game exclusive to Playstation as well
ArcOfTheConclave: will there be crossplay on the avengers game?
Raiz0k: Don't worry, everything's being eventually owned by Disney™®.

Dared00: @TheMerricat 2019
frnknstn: the whole thing feels so backwards. Unless Spiderman is used well as a character, the Spiderman IP will continue to devalue
TheMerricat: @ArcOfTheConclave Playstation and crossplay?
BlueFingers5: While it's not great, if it were more like Soul Caliber with console specific exclusive characters and Xbox and PC got something the others didn't it wouldn't be so bad.
ArcOfTheConclave: @TheMerricat A man can dream.
breadisbest1: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (28m ago).
Phosphatide: oh spiders, like black widow, yeah that’s what we’re talking about right
accountmadeforants: If you put it at a specific line-length, then read it diagonally...
EvilBadman: That thing read Trump-ish
TheMerricat: @frnknstn the thing is Marvel still owns Spiderman the character, so the comics are going to go along no matter what Sony does.
ashteranic: some playstation games support crossplay, although sony was extremely begrudging about it. for instance, cod supported it, and then sony were all like "fine, but only if you with hold a gamemode from the other platforms"
beowuuf: that man's quote the arg for frog fractions 4 confirmed
KeirenH: Sony doesn't own the videogame rights, but maybe they are blackmailing marvel, like "We'll let you use spiderman in the movies as long as you do what we want with the videogames"
EightBitDreams: We need a T-shirt with the quote!
PixelArtDragon: It's also weird that it feels like "Sony told Chrystal Dynamic to remove this content" and not "Sony is paying extra for their character to be added"
ashteranic: @PixelArtDragon it might be a cross-promotion deal.
Earthenone: like a typinh Esport
ashteranic: ie, sony agreed to market the title in exchange for exclusive character
EightBitDreams: I want an Amico
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun A cursory google shows that Sony doesn't own Spiderman's videogame rights. Marvel does.
accountmadeforants: PixelArtDragon Probably because Spider-Man isn't really a minor character. Like, he'd be a shoe-in regardless.
niccus: yes
LarkSachrosis: lrrBEEJ
EightBitDreams: The team making it are very passionate about it
TheMandrew: gimme a remake of Frogs and Flies and i'm sold
fiftymcnasty: Its a 250 dollar console to play bad phone games
EightBitDreams: It's the opposite of the Atari VCS, which is an obvious cash-grab
CAKHost: Is that a yes? I can't tell...
pyrelight: for some reason it has a new earthworm jim game
Invitare: Nintendo profits are up 400% this year
accountmadeforants: "No bad language, graphic violence/blood or sexual content - every game on Amico is rated E for Everyone or E10+" Huh.
GapFiller: there isnt room but that obvs wont stop people trying
TheMerricat: As someone who grew up in that era of consoles, an who played on both the Intellivision and Atari 2600, I honestly can't see anyone wanting revive Intelivision.
HorusFive: Stadia couldnt do it, and they dont need to sell a console AND they have googles money
accountmadeforants: Ouya sold themselves as a full-blown competitor to other, proper consoles. When they were really an Android phone in a box.
pyrelight: hey, i want another sea battle
LordZarano: It's an Ouya that can't even be used as an Android media device
EightBitDreams: Amico very much understands it, but they are too small to get the price where it really needs to be
ArcOfTheConclave: graphic reboot but that gameplay is similar?
EvilBadman: Good ol' kicking ass Reggie
beowuuf: the magnavox oddessy 2 is apparently where it was at back when i first saw a console...gunfighter, aww yeah
djalternative: also, don't forget Mad World
guardianzero666: I am clearly out of touch here, when did checkpoint move to fridays
iris_of_ether: Beej.
J01000111: What am I missing? In what universe is Kirby a horny game???
J01000111: Is that the joke???
saydlen: Roll it all the way back to Eternal Darkness
EvilBadman: @guardianzero666 about a month ago
GapFiller: J01000111 Kirby is permanently on main
pyrelight: kirby is all about horror though.
Dared00: @guardianzero666 a month or so ago, works better with COVID recording schedule
PharaohBender27: @guardianzero666 Several weeks ago - when they started filming the actual Checkpoints in the studio again
mowdownjoe: Good ol' Eternal Darkness.
TheMerricat: @J01000111 What does Kirby do.....
pyrelight: oh yes, eternal darkness
Raiz0k: Isn't the joke that Kirby is like pure vore?
Phosphatide: kirby succ
Orgmastron: @J01000111 You could make the argument that Kirby is vore
EightBitDreams: Amico's big title is apparently Earthworm Jim
TStodden: ESRB E / E10+
TheMerricat: At least Yoshi spits.
GapFiller: Earthworm Jim is cool shame abt Doug Tenapel
Dared00: too bad Earthworm Jim creator is a horrible garbage human being
pyrelight: i prefer the argument that kirby is elder mythos. a being from beyond the stars that will devour everything.
frnknstn: When I hear "Amico" I hear "Coleco"

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, StageMgrRob! (Today's storm count: 27)
GapFiller: Kirby as Cthulhu
GapFiller: its got legs
ashteranic: not even a bit
ashteranic: there's a reason why ms/sony push psn/xbl/gamepass/etc
EightBitDreams: The controller is the reason for that. They wanted accurate gameplay
GamesAndInk: The hardware market is negative lucrative: most companies sell them at a loss and make up for it in game costs
ashteranic: the margins on hardware are basically negative
EightBitDreams: And that thing has the weird touch-pad controller
Raiz0k: @TStodden : Stellaris, the game where you can glass planets, subject the surviving population to exhaustion via force labor, and *then* enslave another species for meat, is rated PEGI 7+.
kdevine7800: lrrPAUL
Sogheim: lrrHEART lrrPAUL
GapFiller: it feels the way consoles have become white good media centres in the past ten twenty years thoroughly disproves that idea of consoles as standalones
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun We are in the era where you can fit a reasonably well endowed emulator on $40 computers. That's why these exist.
Raiz0k: Yeah, what Paul is saying I think.
LordZarano: What was that weird niche handheld with a crank on the side?
pyrelight: fishing
Earthenone: they should just have sold a fancy usb controller and the games
accountmadeforants: LordChrusher PlayDate
pyrelight: don't remember it offhand, will search zarano
LunarJade: play date
EvilBadman: I'd sell the hardware for enthusiasts at first who want the novelty hardware and then pivot to multi-platform, 100%
SAJewers: i think it was somewhat confirmed via job listings it was android or linux based?
Lithobraker: @Raiz0k that's the power of technostrategic abstraction
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I pay $40-50 to make the thing, I sell it for $100-$150, even if the games sell like hotcakes on other platforms, who's going to pay that money for them? They'll be around $10-$50 at tops
Raiz0k: I mean, yeah, there's always hardware nerds, but that's hardly economically viable.
pyrelight: oh, welp
Raiz0k: Although, looking at audiophiles.....
EightBitDreams: Fun fact: Amico's original release date was chosen 3 years ago because it was "fun": 10-10/20-20. The delay was to another "fun" date, 4/3/21
pyrelight: huh, interesting 8bit
accountmadeforants: Meanwhile, I missed my chance to pre-order the Analogue Pocket, as expected :( (They're supposed to make more available, though.)
kdevine7800: I've made 2-3 emulator machines from different Raspberry Pi boards or the Pine64
kdevine7800: Trying to make the PS or Xbox controller work was the most difficult
kdevine7800: Beej knows Klingon
Lithobraker: @Raiz0k it isn't violent content when you're measuring in megadeaths /s
EightBitDreams: The OUYA's controller was one of its biggest problems, very hard to get it working right
Amentur: Gagh is best served live lrrAWESOME
EightBitDreams: Controllers are hard for some reason
kdevine7800: Gagh should ONLY be served live
Raiz0k: @Lithobraker : it isn't a crime against humanity when they're not humans </classic_stellaris_jokes>

kdevine7800: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW lrrBEEJ
TheMerricat: If you are making an emulator for a Raspberry Pi, I wonder what would be cheaper, building an actual arcade stick or buying a PS/Xbox controller an getting it to work.
indianajo3 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 53 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, indianajo3! (Today's storm count: 29)
Raiz0k: Right now TheMerricat ? Probably the latter.
Sogheim: @TheMerricat my brother in law swears by the arcade stick
Raiz0k: Unless you were going for volume and/or had someone who had at least a passing awareness of GPIO.
EvilBadman: @Texan_Reverend Better than the Hague
PixelArtDragon: They could connect you via a system that anonymizes your info
GamesAndInk: I mean confidential can just mean they keep no records. Medical records are confidential but only cuz doctors can't show people your stuff
kdevine7800: It becomes difficult to sync up the voltages as they sometimes used trickery to give controllers more functions
Earthenone: its good advice
Earthenone: :)
Earthenone: i am #notontwitter
kusinohki: #whatsthisoctothorpefor
TheMerricat: I"m just so happy to see that Feminist Frequency is still alive and kicking, I lost track of them for a a couple of years and had assumed lack of news meant the worst.
PharaohBender27: @Earthenone Problem is, as lrrBEEEJ is saying, it's kind of part of a lot of people's jobs. I'm not on Twitter either, but not everyone has that luxury
j30000000: indeed any love we can put out in the world will be
TheMerricat: Like you are a troll.
j30000000: amazing
Laserbeaks_Fury: #GuffGoats
Laserbeaks_Fury: *gruff
kdevine7800: Transference
Raiz0k: Yup.
TheMerricat: I just realized that stream of consciousness responding to the stream doesn't work that well when other people have different levels of stream lag....
HorusFive: Concerned about areas of "Duty to report" even in a good-faith organization
GapFiller: theres a lotta literature abt THAT particular idea
GapFiller: this idea that OG geeks tend to be the worst for this sorta ting
Laserbeaks_Fury: Typing of the Dead CTS?
Raiz0k: For what, for trolling?
PharaohBender27: Was that footage used from last year's championship? Because *no one* in that footage was wearing masks
EightBitDreams: We need a Typing of the Dead MMO
Maddrius: love them clicky keys
omdorastrix: I *really* like the cherry brown keys on my Corsair KB
Sogheim: Typing of the Dead + They Are Billions = Profit
Laserbeaks_Fury: Sadly, half A presses don't work
Raiz0k: Can't get used to springs personally, even 'though I started out with them.
Raiz0k: Maybe got too-delicate finger joints or something :p.
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 wearing masks? please thats so last month
GapFiller: this is one of those tings thats frankly makin me feel edgy leaving the house right now
ArcOfTheConclave: katesLewd katesLewd
kusinohki: I assume the typing champs were using a kavorak keyboard??
kdevine7800: She said banana and all I see is Cory punching someone
fiftymcnasty: So its the new Typing of the Dead
PharaohBender27: @kdevine7800 katesLol
Raiz0k: @GapFiller : the worst thing about that? About a month ago the list of possible countries you would be referring to with that was considerably smaller.
TheMoatman: There are many with no letters now
TheMerricat: In before we hear about the horrible scandal of someone using the macro function in their keyboard and/or a keyboard logger to cheat :D
accountmadeforants: I got to try a Wooting linear keyboard at one point, which uses optical switches where you can change the actuation point. It was great, but I already own an expensive keyboard so I can't really justify it to myself.
PharaohBender27: Dang
Raiz0k: I can't get over the fact they didn't go with "Das Tastatur" for extra hilarity.
Invitare: shouldn''t a keyboard with no letters cost less?
EightBitDreams: I think Linus Tech Tips got a DAS keyboard with all emoji's instead of letters
TheMoatman: Since all the MK nerds love their weird caps
EvilBadman: yeah, but how good is their Starcraft Macro
TheMerricat: "The highest typing speed ever recorded was 216 words per minute (wpm), set by Stella Pajunas in 1946, using an IBM electric typewriter. Currently, the fastest English language typist is Barbara Blackburn, who reached a peak typing speed of 212 wpm during a test in 2005, using a Dvorak simplified keyboard."
GapFiller: tfw yr discover that other people are just objectively better at something than yr ever will be
Laserbeaks_Fury: Do they have pit crews to replace the springs?
fubargames: Those cubes can fall apart if you twist them wrong.
niccus: top speed transcribing is probably much slower than top speed typing
kdevine7800: performance enhanced keyboarding
BigFMonster: got to have a well oiled machine
oyleslyck: pit crew for your keyboard
TStodden: 200 WPM = 1000 CPM or 16.667 CPS or ~60 ms PER keystroke
PharaohBender27: I think I can only do like 50-60 wpm if I'm on fire, but I don't do the 10-finger method (they tried to teach me, but it itched my pinkies, I didn't know which finger to move to go up or down, and it just never took for me)
GapFiller: yr say that as a joke Paul but the fact is people DO rip out their keys to improve workflow
drowbard: I knew a person in college that could do a sub 20 second Rubiks cube
EvilBadman: Someone should bring back the T9 typing championships
fubargames: I've solved a Rubik's Cube in 49 seconds as my best time.
Raiz0k: Is it time already to mention stenographer/chorded utilities such as plover ?
wildpeaks: same, Paul :)
PixelArtDragon: I find that looking at the keys makes me faster, for some reason
the_canuck_mystic: Most important things I learned in High School was touch typing.
TehAmelie: i "translated" a short story in one day at a rate of 12 words per minute the other week. to brag a bit
Mysticman89: my thinking sometimes gets out of sync with my typing which is not ideal, but yeah
Laserbeaks_Fury: Data entry
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie For translation, that actually sounds good
oyleslyck: transcribers
Earthenone: twitter personality?
Raiz0k: @LoadingReadyRun : as above, then you use steno stuff.
EvilBadman: Live captioner or stenographer
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k even if it wasn't that's something that I was interested in a long time ago and now you've reingnited that. thanks :-)
Laurreth: IRC Scatman?
LordZarano: So what's the relationship between typrx and typeracer?
TStodden: When I was learning, back in Jr. High... I was sitting around 30 WPM. It wasn't until the internet & chat rooms that brought me up to around 60 WPM... although I could go higher if accuracy isn't critical.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : "I hate it" ;)?
AtomicAlchemical: Yeah, probably captions
TehAmelie: i mean, i rewrote it, ate, went to the bathroom and surfed the internet at the same time
LarkSachrosis: Freelance transcription.
Laserbeaks_Fury: My mom did that kind of work for the post office
EightBitDreams: Maybe someone manually transcribing from phone/tablet stylus entry, rather than using AI to do it
Mysticman89: I learned as a young kid with akkeyboard how to type, so I'm very fast but not 'correct' in the sense I have like 3 floaty fingers instead of the proper home row thing

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, dspmu! (Today's storm count: 30)
iris_of_ether: My workplace would hire a transcriptioner for a hard-of-hearing coworker. The ladies had special keyboards for it
snailkane: Does the championship take into consideration the language barrier?
PharaohBender27: That's what really slows me down - if I see an error I've made, I *have* to go back and correct it
accountmadeforants: Yup, there's (near-)live closed captioning, it's absurd.
Ritaspirithntr: There’s an anime where the main character did have to type 200 characters per minute. It’s called Violet Evergarden and is about Auto Memory Dolls.
RandomTrivia: Closed captions become less relevant every day because of the improvement of speech-recognition software
lirazel64: It used to be a thing for "girls" because typing was done by women.
Raiz0k: And yeah, I was also getting into, and then I realized that for any creative stuff I do *that's* not a bottleneck.
EvilBadman: There has to be a terrible burden where you have to disassociate the content of what they're saying
TheMerricat: @Ritaspirithntr her fingers are .... not normal fingers though
badpandabear subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 31 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, badpandabear! (Today's storm count: 31)
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, Beej, that's another thing - note shorthand.
Ritaspirithntr: @themerricat yeah, but she was asked to type like that before she took her gloves off.
Lithobraker: Are you allowed to use a chording keyboard?
fubargames: People doing real time live close captioning (at least in Swedish) have a keyboard where they press combinations of keys to make up whole words/syllables in one press.
PharaohBender27: The oral history department at the research library/archives I work at has standards for transcription, so a dash or an ellipses mean something very specific
iris_of_ether: Oh NO
wildpeaks: oh god
TehAmelie: i read a thing about how computer ads in the 1980s always had to show a man near, but not using a computer, since typing was for women
mowdownjoe: HONEY NO
Sogheim: oh man...
iris_of_ether: subject object?
HorusFive: those poor bastards. That man hardly talks english good...
PharaohBender27: o_O
AtomicAlchemical: You would never be able to tell where any sentence is going
fubargames: Typically he doesn't
wildpeaks: how do they even manage to do it ? it's just word salad
TheMerricat: @fubargames Stenography.
spiltdownman: I wonder if he sounds way more eloquent?
Earthenone: cars
accountmadeforants: I imagine at some point it just comes out as a Boomhauer script, but in French
Raiz0k: Yeah, live translation of that kind of cadence (?) is a lot of fun to listen to in many languages.
Dared00: so it's Ford-nite now?
red_shoes_jeff: @spiltdownman Statistically impossible.
Laserbeaks_Fury: What else are you going to take to the Drive-In
RandomTrivia: @Dared00 Well played
Sogheim: if you cannot drive the ice cream truck I'll be upset
wildpeaks: are they powered by an explosion engine ? :D
RandomTrivia: Wouldn't you want to leave a dead vehicle as a distraction?
spiltdownman: how is it statistically impossible for him to sound more eloquent? surely there is only room for improvement
fubargames: Yeah, but for like TV subtitles in big live interviews and so on. If they make a typo it always become another "valid" word, so sort of like autocorrect.
lirazel64: @tehamelie My sister once worked at a place with a typing pool. She was expected to write in longhand and hand it to someone else to type.
Raiz0k: Made up? Is that like the gun situation in shooters?
Raiz0k: Also known as A.K.A 47?
TehAmelie: huh
lirazel64: Thank God *that* died.
Dared00: Whiplash looks like a Stratos
wildpeaks: considering I know as much about cars as about sports, these are indeed words, probably
HorusFive: I always forget that Beej is a car-guy
Raiz0k: Doge-looking frontend? Sign me up!
BrindleBoar: goodbye forever
GoblinRanger: bye
RandomTrivia: Oh goodbye
Earthenone: !findquote car

wildpeaks: his truck needed him
HorusFive: Call forth the substitute Beej
TheMerricat: That's right I keep forgetting that Beej is a car man.
Raiz0k: Beej, is that the WASPs acting up again?
Lithobraker: When does fortnite add IEDs that you can sabotage cars with?
Azralorne: Heather should split herself between the two screens lol
Scy_Anide: Do they care if their VODs are muted?
Azralorne: 😂😂
RandomTrivia: The Multi-Heather!
Lithobraker: Did GTA also use to license songs for the radio?

GapFiller: The True Face of Heather Revealed!
AtomicAlchemical: And then Paul was a sandwich
HorusFive: Paul-encompassing Heather- @Raiz0k
Raiz0k: Heather controls the vertical and the horizontal.
RandomTrivia: Look to your left. Look to your right. Both of those people are Heather. The Beejdrop has changed hands
accountmadeforants: Watch her reach through the blinds and come out in Paul's room.
wildpeaks: !advice
LRRbot: Be less on fire
GapFiller: !badadvice
LRRbot: Don't do what Daddy Ian didn't.
spiltdownman: I like how both beej and heather are sitting next to paul in checkpoint but also next to each other in real life. nobody gets left out

spiltdownman: the dary
oyleslyck: EA taking their NFS Underground motif
excalgold: the sewer.....
TheMerricat: How can you have a yard underground? How would the grass grow?
tycoonbosh: It's just the equivalent of playing in a dome, but not professionally
EightBitDreams: John Madden falls in a hole your dog dug in the backyard, and found himself underground
Raiz0k: Yeah, @oyleslyck has the right of it.
Lithobraker: Did they add try and keep the players isolated from COVID minigame?
pyrelight: The yard : Underground : Revengence
excalgold: NFL 2K21: The Bubble
accountmadeforants: TheMerricat It's an upside down yard, the "grass" is proper grass's roots. (:
PharaohBender27: So is it Fight Club: Football Edition?
kdevine7800: Will the audience be standees or real fans?

PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Ah, fair. Just seemed like you actually cared there for a sec

EightBitDreams: It's all about Calvinball
PixelArtDragon: Let's go Millenials!
