GamesAndInk: @TacitusVigil You are a powerful person with a deep wellspring of worth that you bring to the world, and I know you have it in you to make it just a little bit longer!
beowuuf: homework done then :p
PharaohBender27 tries to shoots spoons into @TacitusVigil , but is unsure if he has the correct technology for doing so
lirazel64: meaning Gladiator on Arena so all the Amonkets.
Snowcookies: Yes, this show has homework, and a final exam at the end of this month
TacitusVigil: Heh. I wish that was true @GamesAndInk :(
TacitusVigil: Maybe some sort of harpoon gun but with a spoon instead @PharaohBender27 ?
beowuuf shoots blunt squishy spoons that make a funny noise when they connect, but can be redeemed for real mental energy at any participating store

RockPusher: where we chill… and point
AgentMagicMaster: what was that about Epic paul?
GapFiller: that stinger was pretty funny
kusinohki: outro was amazing!
cuttlefishman: I heard points are being chilled
beowuuf: diabore: sounds like maybe right now?
Diabore: @AgentMagicMaster fortnite was taken off the apple store for breach of contract, now epic is suing them
NovaTiempo: How dare Appple :p
Diabore: and google followed, in epic fashion they are suing google too
PharaohBender27: It's clearly all a plot to foil Checkpoint!
GDwarf: Film Checkpoint only on days that don't actually exist, such as February 29th!
AgentMagicMaster: @Diabore Oh, I know. The checkpoint stinger this week was baller.
kusinohki: daily checkpoint... it's the only rational solution :P
Scy_Anide: Clearly the solution is to have Checkpoint on Thursday, Friday, AND Monday.
GapFiller: Diabore see what yr did there
RockPusher: The video game industry is just weirdly conspiring to be as inconvenient to checkpoint as possible :D
NovaTiempo: "198Fortnight" OOF
TheMerricat: has Fdroid banned Epic yet ;-)
Diabore: th only reliable news i listen too, chockponk
Angnor33: Lots of podcasts drop no Thursdays, for whatever reason.
mowdownjoe: @TheMerricat I know you're joking, but considering they're only for open-source apps...
kusinohki: bad news thursday... so ppl won't notice and then forget over the weekend?
TacitusVigil: Maybe people want it out for Friday and the Weekend?
Arikell: I never could get the hang of thursdays
Diabore: @kusinohki thats 455pm fridays
RockPusher: "What sort of podcasts are you into?" "Thursday"
TristalMTG: I just assume the analytics dictate Thursday as the best release date
demonflowers2: now i want to know all the podcasts heather listens to
TheMerricat: @mowdownjoe not if Epic Sue's them they won't :p
Snowcookies: #tangenttime
Dared00: For me, Thursday was always "the day where nothing interesting happens"
Sogheim: podcasts are for dog walks, so I get a lot of repeats midweek from monday news drops
Tiber727: Fun fact: podcasts are done on Thursday began as a tradition to honor Thor, the god of podcasts. Kappa
TacitusVigil: It goes up on Thursday to honor Thor, God of Podcasts.
mowdownjoe: But yeah, Epic's whole thing is remarkedly tonedeaf considering the LITERAL FASCISM that surrounds them. I don't like Apple, but c'mon, don't use them to make comparisons to 1984.
GapFiller: Beej yr say that as tho yt comments have value
PharaohBender27: @TacitusVigil katesLol
GapFiller: any value at all
Tiber727: How did we make the same joke at the same time?
beowuuf: tht was freaky
cuttlefishman: Record Checkpoint on 0400AM on Tuesday Morning

cuttlefishman: obviously
3schr: "We can record checkpoint every day of the week" - Paul, Now.
3schr: You heard him, everyone!
accountmadeforants: People who record podcasts on days other than Wednesday just aren't to be trusted. Those Tuesday and Thursday folks are a bit off, and don't even get me started with those weekend... things!
GapFiller: mowdownjoe ah but what cd be more zeitgeisty than a megacorp painting themselves as an underdog rebel outsider
PharaohBender27: @mowdownjoe Yeah, Jim Sterling had the right take: lrrEFF Apple, lrrEFF Google, and lrrEFF Epic - this argument belongs in a courtroom, not become a proxy fandom war

3schr: Exactly!
3schr: Splider
TacitusVigil: Wait, are Beejdrops just people turning the Beej Slider up? Whoops, all Beej?
kusinohki: games normally without spiders, now have a slider to add some
Sogheim: when making a podcast, which muse do you invoke? Calliope? Melpomene? Thalia? Big Thalia?
RomanGoro: I'm not arachnophobic so take this with a grain of salt, but Satisfactory's no-spiders mode is even more horrifying IMO
RockPusher: But does "Spider Slider" increase or decrease terror consistently across games? lrrBEEJ
Tiber727: If I make a game, it will have a spider slider. It will only be used to increase the number of spiders.
beowuuf: those turned down spiders have to go somwhere
CaptainSpam: "What happens if you turn the spider slider up past 100%?" "Then the game just becomes Bloodborne."
lirazel64: What about people who fear snakes? or cats?
GamesAndInk: If you made Mirror's Edge's streets lava pits instead of extreme heights, it would be a different game but would help some height phobias
RockPusher: scary as in mechanics - not scary as in MY BRAIN SAYS NOPE
AgentMagicMaster: if I was tiny, I would fear Dragonflies more than spiders.
Juliamon: It's the difference between being scared and being terrified.
kusinohki: vague memory... there was a W&P game where so many spiders spawned, the game froze... can't remember name...
Gizmoloid: @TacitusVigil Or maybe they're turning a "NotBeej" slider down and the Beej is the default state of being?
3schr: It's supposed to big scary how big they are, not just that they are
Juliamon: kusinohki That was the infamous Time Ramesside
PharaohBender27: @kusinohki One of the many iterations of Time Ramesside
TacitusVigil: @Gizmoloid Oooh, good point.
TacitusVigil: There's a difference in having a phobia and just "being scared."
Dared00: yeah, when I was watching Ben's gameplay, he was scared even by the level 5 blobs, he just wasn't repulsed to the point of unplayability
chefryto90: Not, really.. Phobias are no fun to interact with. Ask Ben.
DiscordianTokkan: They're a LOT bigger than the player
BlueChloroplast: change jumping spiders into flopping carp?

AtomicAlchemical: Difference between fear and phobia is often the difference between "I am uncomfortable" and "I am having a panic attack"
EvilBadman: I absolutely cannot do heights IRL. Games tip it /sometimes/ but not often
kusinohki: adrenaline rush vs PTSD ??
BlueChloroplast: @TheMerricat :D
Arikell: rational vs. irrational fear
niccus: admittedly it's really difficult to remove the limbs of snakes
CaptainSpam: Spiders: They creepy, yo.
ArcOfTheConclave: lrrEFF spiders
accountmadeforants: Spiders move real weird and are everywhere
Snowcookies: I saw someone say that accessibility might take time away from developing the game which is ugh
BlueChloroplast: @niccus ROFL :D :D :D
Diabore: @TheMerricat google has said it was a streamer named pokelawls
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you have to SIGN UP for therapy
Twilight_Spark: Oh that's very interesting. Of all "creepy" things, spiders IRL are like...I always I feel like I have a tacit alliance of convenience with spiders.
GamesAndInk: Exposure therapy, as PART OF A PSYCHIATRIC COURSE, is helpful
EvilBadman: consent!
GapFiller: exposure is basically a fundamentally suspect
GapFiller: just personally
kusinohki: insert far side cartoon - locked in a phone booth with spiders, snakes, hanging off the 50th floor...
ashiok_nightmare_moose: controlled environment, professionals, etc
TheMerricat: it's controlled and done in specific stages
Snowcookies: it's slow and not for everyone
GapFiller: it feels exposure advocacy is of a piece w/ other forms of adversity breeding character rhetoric
AtomicAlchemical: I do not have arachnophobia, but I have an almost pathological fear response to realistic scorpions. It's made Animal Crossing very stressful after dusk.
Sogheim: House Flipper gives a warning about the cockroaches and even gives you the option to have broken glass instead. I appreciate it a lot
GamesAndInk: Phobias are the brain short-circuiting, literally: you become irrationally afraid (positive punishment), and when that thing goes away you calm down (negative reinforcement), which trains your brain that the thing was scary, so next time you're exposed it becomes even MORE scared. It's an emergent loop as a result of how humans learn, and it results in levels of fear that are comparable to actual life-threatening situations and are hard to describe to non-sufferers.
CaptainSpam: CSD3 just did away with the chores entirely, actually.
lirazel64: Ah. thanks for that. I have a good friend that's an ailuraphobe, so I wondered.
CaptainSpam: (CSD2 had the option, but CSD3 just doesn't have chores)
Juliamon: Fear of violence is rational. Fear of bugs may not be.
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon I do wonder if fear of bugs is a primal holdover from when humans didn't necessarily know which bugs were dangerous and which ones weren't
BlueChloroplast: @GamesAndInk oh that is interesting.
lirazel64: It's great to make games that more people can play.
Juliamon: PharaohBender27 I've seen research that it's very regionally based, some places have a significantly lower rate of insect/spider phobias.
kusinohki: honest question - do spiderwebs without spiders trigger arachnophobia??
GapFiller: katesLol
GamesAndInk: @BlueChloroplast It's why exposure therapy is an important aspect--the idea is, you're exposed to the thing, but a therapist helps you remain calm even when exposed to it (which is the part people FORGET, that therapy is an important part of the process) so that you train your brain 'no, actually, this thing is okay'
Dared00: @kusinohki it depends, but they can
EvilBadman: Key art
BlueChloroplast: @GamesAndInk oh cool!
ashiok_nightmare_moose: well at least its upfront about the content though
aiamethyst: mtg arena needs a feature like this, I would like to turn off all the sharks
ashiok_nightmare_moose: pretty sure ben turned it on and off
GamesAndInk: Fun fact, trypophobia (fear of many clustered holes) is sometimes thought to NOT be a classic 'phobia' because it elicits disgust, not fear, and is possibly an innate fear to keep people from being near wasps/fungi/maggots. But of course, it's easy to fall into the trap of avoiding the thing that disgusts you until it actually becomes a phobia, so it's possible that trypophobia is actually two related conditions.
RockPusher: Brains are weird - there are spider-like things that set me off, there are spiders that don't
GapFiller: lol EA eh
TheMerricat: and yet they still can and probably will
Twilight_Spark: rofl
Tiber727: Shareholders: "How about giving us that money instead?"
PharaohBender27: Because they want *all* the money
BlueChloroplast: @GamesAndInk huh
RockPusher: Never underestimate good old fashioned lrrGREED
GamesAndInk: Also, 100% of the time I use Google to look up the spelling of trypophobia I regret it because it pops up helpful image results.
kusinohki: wouldn't know what to do with 1 million... let alone 16
BlueChloroplast: @GamesAndInk yeahhhh I've heard of that problem
lirazel64: It's not about accomplishment. It's about dick-meaz
Twilight_Spark: They can kick out the execs.
lirazel64: measuring contests with other execs.
Vyous: They can replace the board.
cuttlefishman: Do you keep the shareholders happy Beej?
TheMerricat: to block this they would need to vote to replace the directors. which is almost impossible
GamesAndInk: If you paid me like $5 million but made my shareholders mad, I'd say "Aw, so sorry you feel angry" all the way to my mansion on my private estate.
Snowcookies: LRR has no shareholders cuttlefish
cuttlefishman: (That's the joke Snowcookies)
TheMerricat: that's my secret, I have no shareholders...
TacitusVigil: They're deeply concerned and rebuke them for raise...but do nothing. AKA The Susan Collins.
RockPusher: the sea-change into a snowball
Zhedor: Well, i just checked: I am an EA-Shareholder.... I don't know how to feel about this story. Or the fact that I own EA-Stock
Twilight_Spark: If you own any stock-backed ETF/mutual fund you likely own some EA.
djalternative: 3/4ths shareholders saying no is a significant portion though. I don't expect the 30 mil version to pass at this point. Some form with less money will probably get passed though

TheMerricat: @lirazel64 tbh I don't remember any female Nazis in game but I only played two of them and not all the way through
Izandai: @Zhedor Fun fact: People with only one testicle exist, and most of them aren't nazis.
PharaohBender27: @lirazel64 Those games, or at least the ones I played, didn't have women "targets"
djalternative: that's... still below industry standard for min per word payment
BlueChloroplast: @djalternative huh
Dared00: Average changed from 3.5 to 6.5. Everyone gets paid the same, except for Johnny Bigword that gets paid 40 times more Kappa
djalternative: $0.08 is the standard min
Izandai: @Zhedor I'll cut to the chase: The implication of what you're saying is that not having two testicles makes a man somehow inherently lesser than others in some meaningful way, and that's awfully insulting to the real-life people who don't have two testicles.
Snowcookies: Let's not base someone's value based on their genitals
Izandai: There's plenty of legitimate ways to undercut the narrative of nazi strength. Like pointing out that they thought it was a good idea to invade Russia in the winter.
Izandai: @Snowcookies Precisely.
Juliamon: Let's move on from the testes talk please.
Izandai: Okay.
DoodlestheGreat: Did they discuss the Epic Games/Apple slapfight?
djalternative: no
GapFiller: DoodlestheGreat yeh right at the start

PharaohBender27: @DoodlestheGreat Not yet
GapFiller: followed by some giving out abt news happening at time of writing
lirazel64: @doodlesthegreat Getting there!
Zhedor: @Izandai I got that, I've got some different context to the one ball story based on german media, which I probably should have reevalued some tme after my teens
PharaohBender27: For @DoodlestheGreat 's benefit: https://clips.twitch.tv/UglyToughEndiveArsonNoSexy
RockPusher: Even around this part of the world I'm a bit of an oddity of being an IT worker who's been in unions for most of my working life - though that is more about the industries than the profession
LurkerSpine: I wish I could join a union
Rockario: Thus the reasoning behind bosses saying "compensate your employees well or they might unionize"
Izandai: Huh. How about that.
AgentMagicMaster: fascinating
DigitalSeahorse: I was warned not to lead on that I actully thought of the potential union organizing at the call center I was at when HR called me into office and then I did not as I was warned not to
Izandai: And Google now, apparently?
wildpeaks: also Google yeah
GapFiller: Google yeh
TacitusVigil: My mom had that happen when she was working as a young woman. She was the only one that knew how to work this one machine during a strike. So when she went through the lines they'd stop booing and chanting and tell her "We don't mean you, we love you!"
accountmadeforants: I hope they blow each other up simultaneously.

TheMerricat: chat was the epic 1984 video at least interesting enough to watch for the Lola?
GapFiller: a MegaCorp presenting themselves as a scrappy Outsider is a bold move cottom
TheMerricat: lols even
GapFiller: see also Uber in California this week
Twilight_Spark: Someone has to be harmed.
Kazman20a: court don't do hypotheticals
Sogheim: @TheMerricat the famous Hammer was a unicorn head, I believe
GamesAndInk: That's also why states consistently make clearly federally/constitutionally illegal laws: purely so that they can bring those to the supreme court to try and knock down the federal/constitutional law
GapFiller: why look like a MegaCorp shirking their corporate responsibilities when yr can look like a sexy industry disruptor
Tiber727: You have to be affected by something in order to have standing to contest it.
Amentur: I'm not sure what I find more annoying: Epic paraphrasing 1984 for Fortnite or Ubisoft paraphrasing "First they came ..." for WatchDogs Legion
PharaohBender27: @DigitalSeahorse That sounds like intimidation by your HR
accountmadeforants: GapFiller I mean, Apple and Google are trillion-dollar companies. Epic is a mere, comparatively miniscule billion-dollar company.
DigitalSeahorse: yup, PharaohBender27
eshplode: Having a trailer for a lawsuit seems kind of in poor taste
Izandai: It's the astroturfing of the fight.
PharaohBender27: @Amentur Wait, Ubisoft did that!? I mean, I wish I was surprised at this point, but still . . . :/
DoodlestheGreat: Chutzpah. That's the word you want, Heather.
Reecer6: yeah, the weaponizing of children is the worst thing
Izandai: (which is a term I fucking love BTW)
AgentMagicMaster: astroturfing always feels scummy
lirazel64: It's the self-righteousness.
TheMerricat: @amentur I give Ubisoft a pass for that given the origin of the poem and the fact that it was at least relevant to the story of the game
RockPusher: preach it Heather! lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
Dared00: I like the idea, but the 1984 stuff is just tasteless
burnafterburn: fortnite was banned from the play store too

Sogheim: "mobilize the fan base" doesn't work when Apple promotes their next big MMO shooter but with free upgrades if you were a Fortnite player
Jaconian: Side note: Paul: we have those same glasses at home (bought b/c they were the glasses my grandparents had).
GapFiller: this sounds even more like the Uber ting in that much like the Uber userbase the Fortnite playerbase is part of the product it feels
Dared00: I mean, it *was* the reference to Apple's 1984 ad, but it's still tasteless
Tiber727: Epic wants to make their own store. Which is their right, but let's not pretend it's anything but self-interest.
Vyous: Even the filing doc felt quite sensationalized.
Amentur: @PharaohBender27 They did a take on it in the WatchDogs Legion trailer a few weeks ago. I'm German and my eyes just twitched the whole time over that happening
Snowcookies: Spotify literally went to court with Apple over a similar thing last year iirc and they didn't run this kind of campaign
DoodlestheGreat: The hilarious part is that original commercial was also an out-of-touch slapfigfht between megacorps, IBM and Apple.
RoyEltham: Apple Music on Android circumvents googles cut via manual entry of paid account info. So they are being hypocritical
Reecer6: to be fair, at the time, apple was both smaller and a direct competitor to ibm
PharaohBender27: @Amentur Yeah, that's some nonsense right there. Not to mention recent revelations have shown that Ubisoft execs are *not* good guys
rrtycoon2: Yeah, Fortnite is the store, and Apple/Google is the mall.
Dared00: I might be naive, but based on Epic's behavior over the last few years, I kinda believe that in addition to helping themselves, they also want to help other devs
AtomicAlchemical: Payment management. Bug checking. Legal expenses. Probably Financial Insurance of some kind
LurkerSpine: While I honestly don't think a 30% cut is terrible, I do think Apple's ToS is insane. They're going after Airbnb, claiming they should get a percentage of a booking. That's just absolutely dumb.
GapFiller: Dared00 eh gonna havta cop to being cynical on that front mysln
PharaohBender27: Whoops, left out a word in that title
GapFiller: ymmv obvs
Amentur: @TheMerricat I would give Ubisoft a pass if I had reason to believe that they will actually be critical about the topic. The other WatchDogs just felt like they poked at these real subjects and then didn't care to go deeper
TheMerricat: the "they came" poem was written by a literal Nazi supporter who thought Hitler wasn't doing enough and only changed their tune after they were arrested for being too loud about it. I know some people feel it's 'sacred' but imo it's fair game.
Sogheim: Paul's beard keeps trying to devour his mouth, oh no
Dared00: 12
Tiber727: @LurkerSpine To give Apple a tiny bit of credit, if Apple didn't take a cut of in-app purchases, everyone would just make the app free and make you buy everything in-app.
Snowcookies: Sogheim you've met beards that don't try to devour mouths
DoodlestheGreat: I've no doubt whatsoever that 30% is WAY too high.
Reecer6: i mean... that's the poem? it's literally a mea culpa
RoyEltham: Apple Music on Android circumvents googles cut via manual entry of paid account info. So they are being hypocritical
Lithobraker: I'd be a lot more sympathetic to that argument if there was any way to compete with the App store on Apple products
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Where the heck did you read that? My understanding was that Bonhoeffer was an opponent of the Nazis from the start
Reecer6: i don't trust any business strategy that loses money
DigitalSeahorse: they dont even have achievements in games
RoyEltham: Also, the app store has tons of free apps, so how do they cover that cost?
BlueChloroplast: :D
LurkerSpine: @Tiber727 The only way I could see stuff like concert tickets and hotel reservations etc is if they allowed apps to call it a literal Apple Tax, and advertise they could get a discount by using the website instead of the app.
Shoki_Donai: The titans do battle, the news story.
Sogheim: I had enough of that with the Disney Sony Spiderman thing
GapFiller: Reecer6 how dyr feel abt Uber? sp
GapFiller: aking of big tech companies trying to pass themselves off as 'the little guy' this week
RockPusher: and the results won't be seen for years
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Aaand whoops I totally misremembered who wrote that poem, my bad :P
accountmadeforants: Lithobraker Yeah, I'm with you on that one. "Cost of doing business" doesn't justify excluding competition.
LurkerSpine: Apple has also repeatedly committed acts of collusion. I have ZERO confidence they're acting in good faith right now.
Reecer6: @GapFiller oh yeah uber and whatnot is the worst offender
DigitalSeahorse: RoyEltham ad money

wildpeaks: yeah you make 7x time the amount on iOS than on Android as a general rule
PharaohBender27: @LurkerSpine Like Jim Sterling said today, " lrrEFF Apple, lrrEFF Google, and :eff Epic"
AgentMagicMaster: they poked apple in the eye lol
wildpeaks: and Android is harder to develop for due tot he amount of devices
Reecer6: something something apple users are rich and rich people are irresponsible
Raiger: Doesn’t epic also have their own android App Store too...
FNBRtoast: very interesting u have opened my eyes
RoyEltham: @DigitalSeahorse that's the app using ads to fund itself. I meant the app store itself hosts free apps where they don't get a cut.
Izandai: Hence why they had to Trojan Horse it.
TacitusVigil: You're rich in friends, Beej
KevinTheShark: iOS does seem to attract more people with an amount of disposable income.... and kids
orellien2773: The question, to me, is whether or not Apple's TOS and their policies constitutes a potential Antitrust violation.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a minister who opposed tha Nazis and was eventually executed for it towards the end of the war. My memory got warped and I'd thought he'd been the author of that poem

Dandinstorm12: Seabats?
wildpeaks: "maybe these 5 sparkly bear asses will fill the void of existential dread"
DarkAbyssKeeper: Honestly, applying the 'If the scene doesn't contribute to the story, cut it' philosophy to games could be revolutionary.
TheMerricat: that one did @digitalseahorse but the two line ones didn't show up for me at least....
rrtycoon2: C+....C+.....C+......

Juliamon: PharaohBender27 I'm willing to bet it's just Twitch being weird today.
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon Fair call
accountmadeforants: Yup, Twitch's emotes have been a bit wonky since they introduced threaded replies.
BlueChloroplast: I think dragon age origin had stuff like that, with programming it
Izandai: katesLol
DigitalSeahorse: PharaohBender27, I was gifted 3 days ago of Ysbrd though
GapFiller: Victory to the MAchines!
EvilBadman: Dragon Age: Origin had a tactics system that worked similarly and it ruled. There was a PC mod that added more if/thens statement
GDwarf: Paradigm Shifts are less automated than Gambits, but yeah
chesul: so, basically they offboarded programming their ally AI to the player?

Sogheim: can't afford yacht, tarp budget went over again
wildpeaks: hashtag yachtlife
DigitalSeahorse: xD
accountmadeforants: You're telling me my epiphany while reading the financial section of the newspaper to buy a boat was not entirely rational?
Izandai: Aren't yachts sailboats?
Dandinstorm12: no
TStodden: How much are Yachts now? 4 Million?
ZaxusEMK: technically, yachts were originally sailboats
Snowcookies: some ppl put sails on yachts
Lithobraker: I thought yachts were for doing cocaine with a seinic view
Dared00: Dynamite Yacht Race
PharaohBender27: Yes you can - it derives from the Dutch term for "hunting"
accountmadeforants: TStodden At least 20 bananas, probably.
GDwarf: "There is no standard definition, so the term applies to such vessels that have a cabin with amenities that accommodate overnight use."
ameliette: gta yachts are small cruiseships
LurkerSpine: or an aircraft carrier
BlueChloroplast: Yacht basically means expensive boat.
Izandai: Holy shit Heather just cracked this whole thing wide open.
Scy_Anide: My boat isn't very long but it's thicc.
Arikell: There's a whole power/weight ratio problem here
PharaohBender27: i.e. "Yes you can have a sailboat yacht"

TheMerricat: "A yacht /jÉ’t/ is a sail or power vessel used for pleasure, cruising, or racing. ... To be termed a yacht, as opposed to a boat, such a pleasure vessel is likely to be at least 33 feet (10 m) in length and have been judged to have good aesthetic qualities."

EvilBadman: Xbox and PS5 are in a game of price/date chicken
Laserbeaks_Fury: What happens with the sequel? Halo: Infinity +1?
TheMerricat: @Wiliart wins chat, close it down.
Izandai: That would actually be really good.
EvilBadman: neither of them want to relive when Sony did the $299 to Saturn
GapFiller: ohhh that Saturn ting was bad
Jaconian: It's just a corporate game of chicken.
storiers: On launch day you just walk into the store and put twenty dollar bills on a counter until a salesperson stops shaking their head and hands you the console
Izandai: katesLol
Sogheim: so it's MtG packs?
EvilBadman: "That means it's free, right?"
TacitusVigil: Free Xbox!
Dared00: Get the box, you'll pay... eventually
rrtycoon2: Your card has been charged a mystery amount!
Shoki_Donai: "Just give me your best offer"
ADTalks: You mean $50 more, but guaranteed in stock through christmas?
Izandai: @EvilBadman I've heard of this, but what was the Saturn announced to cost?
KevinTheShark: Gotta use the Barter system
Jaconian: They'll reveal the price during checkout.
EvilBadman: @Izandai 349, I think?
GapFiller: Izandai ~$399 iirc
Izandai: OOF. Yeah that's bad.
rrtycoon2: Oh, don't bring up holds, banks love to double up on those.
GapFiller: mightve even been higher
Saunabath: Let the market define the value, like currencies
BlueChloroplast: katesWa katesOw
Lithobraker: Stop giving them ideas beej

Snowcookies: Woo
niccus: the game's out of its early access heaven!
Snowcookies: Fugi and James
aerohydra: James just said yes to fugi finally
wildpeaks: Fugi finally managed to convince someone :D
Wiliart: Automation for the sake of automation
TheMerricat: So with Serge playing Satisfactory and Factorio coming out I'm really getting close to breaking my "don't buy games at full price" rule.
wildpeaks: he's been trying to get Serge to play it too
Izandai: You harvest resources, build factory pieces, and murder alien bugs.
wildpeaks: beware, ti's very addictive for programmers :D
TStodden: It's a factory... building factories... building factories...
LurkerSpine: it is NOT in honor of full release, James had no idea about it leaving early access
niccus: factorio will literally never go on a discount
KevinTheShark: I got it confused with Satisfactory for a moment there

wildpeaks: satisfactorio
RomanGoro: Although you can get run over by a train?
ThermobaricKitten: Satisfactory is basically 1st person Factorio
Invitare: Serge has been playing it
Izandai: @RomanGoro Sadly I doubthe'll get that far.
Dared00: JOSH RULES
Izandai: *doubt he'll
Wiliart: That channel is fantastic
TheMerricat: Satifactory = 1st person Factorio, Factorio = top down Satisfactory

GapFiller: Kathleens Island Tour The Real One More
dylan16807: Making robots build and copy-paste things makes a huge difference in the mid and late game in factorio, but it takes a while to get there.

ADTalks: Too many rhythm games
DigitalSeahorse: lrrCAMERON lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN lucidDuck
EvilBadman: He's been doing some side dungeons, which are generally rougher than the game/dlc
GapFiller: apparently Cam is in danger of overunning his allocation re finishing the game
niccus: he might have to skip a few chalice dungeons, but he's moving at a decent clip
Snowcookies: one of the blood beasts
Dared00: How far is he into the game? Not sure if I should catch up or wait for the end
niccus: he's doing DLC postgame, but pregame
CaptainSpam: I'm not sure if the game ever ends, from what I've seen of streams.
GapFiller: Dared00 near endgame
Izandai: katesLol
KevinTheShark: Like with the Divine Beasts in Breath of the Wild!?
wildpeaks: "enjoying" is relative in Bloodborne
Dared00: @GapFiller oh neat, thanks for the info
GapFiller: hes basically at the FFVII just before the endgame point
EvilBadman: @Dared00 He's like 3/4 through the game+dlc, but he's on chalice Dungeons which are 100% optional
Snowcookies: Yay Dice Friends
Lithobraker: I believe the bloodborne boss machete order was a joke in CommodoreHustle
ADTalks: oh man, Andy and jacob?
