Juliamon: LRRbot says TTSF
LoadingReadyRun: that actually makes a bit of sense
beowuuf: ooh, now i really want to know the context :p
Juliamon: "Ottoman Adventure and Bluetooth Speakers"

beowuuf: iris_of_ether: there are vehicles too???
Dergib: Did they ever say if they have a plan for stream points?
Dergib: sitting on 69k
monsieur_squirrel: nice
SoaringDragon42: nice
beowuuf: channel points? hard to have generic ones. maybe arrange for challenges?
Juliamon: Figuring out points is waaaaay on the backburner right now
iris_of_ether: @beowuuf So, I just had the Crown Vic sitting in a project box (I wanted to make post apoc cars awhile back), so I figured what the heck
GapFiller: the only stream I've seen use channel points in anything like a remotely useful way is James
GapFiller: nobody else
GapFiller: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE
kusinohki: TODAY!
AWells44: I think you point are so people who cannot afford subs can get emotes

pyronils80: Hello and good evening! :) :) :)
mowdownjoe: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE
SoaringDragon42: A bit early for that.
Joalni: Sounds credible
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf I remember lrrPAUL saying they worried if they had something like "We have to sing if someone cases in 100k," 20 people would do it immediately because of how many points we've accumulated :p
Sarah_Serinde: Based on the episode I am *super* jealous of Victoria's weather :p
PharaohBender27: Sitting on 182.1k myself
Sarah_Serinde: 15C sounds heavenly
CAKHost: The question now is, what is Beej doing now?
GapFiller: good evening P lrrPAUL lrrHEART H lrrHEATHER lunarj1Heart
Stoffern: I know 2020 is weird but daylight savings already?
CAKHost: And should we put up signs?
kusinohki: daylight saving month
monsieur_squirrel: hello from a c,ech pub
ritchards: Dammit Paul, you had one joke! lrrPAUL
GapFiller: this is why Beej is filling in for Heather eh? Kappa

Laserbeaks_Fury: Now that he's tenured, totally slacking off
GapFiller: hope the weather in Victorias been okay today cz its been binning it down here in Albion today
GapFiller: also yesterday
PharaohBender27: @monsieur_squirrel HSCheers
TheMerricat: Chat I'm starting to get the feeling Beej doesn't want to be with us any more
GapFiller: most of this week infact
EightBitDreams: Wait, there was video game news??
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller "binning?"
CAKHost: Like the chance to win buying the PS5? Which is a think we have to think about now???
CAKHost: *thing
monsieur_squirrel: @pharaohbender27 🍻🍻
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 just miserable
GapFiller: all week

LordZarano: wait, error 4 lrrBEEJ 4 makes more sense
beowuuf: Stoffern: when i saw the hour delay my mind is so fried time wise i had to double take about that
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh god, don't put that out into the universe!

Simriel: Did someone turn the Beej slider down so much?
mowdownjoe: Sadly, the fact that it's US only means no easy "5 PS5s".
GapFiller: hey Paul are yr a bad enough dude to own 5 PS5's? Kappa
SirBiffaloEsq: Yeah. Bungie does a bunch of "this costs more than we will let you spend on an order unless you do thing" promotions
beowuuf: just to 6 ps6 joke seabatBRAIN
MolaMolaphant: bungie has a rewards systems. The Raid Jackets are for folks who got first-week completions.
EightBitDreams: No date yet

beowuuf: *jump

Simriel: How is LRR going to afford 100 PS100s
PharaohBender27: Sony's clearly trying to sabotage LRR by withholding launch date

GapFiller: if its anything like the PS3 launch then in lieu of 5 PS5's we can do a Gibbstation 5 video
Dergib: it was like 700 us at launch
Nigouki: man that was a meme-y launch
LordZarano: $599 USD is the famous meme number
GapFiller: get roving reporter Gibb on the scene again
Sarah_Serinde: iris_of_ether sergeJustRight
Simriel: That's what, 4 million Canadian?
kusinohki: wouldn't $555 be more meme-y ??
EightBitDreams: There was a $499 PS3, it sold out in 2 seconds
GapFiller: thats even worse than the Saturn lauch
GamesAndInk: Can anyone else faintly hear Paul's voice being picked up from Heather's headphones? :P
beowuuf: how long did it take to recover from te salt shortage that video caused? MiniK

GapFiller: iirc a scalper was how LRR came into possession of a PS3
GapFiller: inna roundabout way
EightBitDreams: Personally I think it's a big marketing ploy. Sony already said they were going to manufacture more of them than they've ever had at a previoous launch
GamesAndInk: Or maybe it's Beej's headphones sitting on the desk near the mic? @Joalni
Nigouki: maybe this is just a really elaborate way to gauge needed stocks for regions because they're expecting shortages?
LordZarano: one of LRR's ps3s was an empty display unit iirc
ContingentCat: just vibes
kusinohki: go full "omega-thon" competition. be great marketing
Kerrisis: Meh, I'll stick with my PC thanks.
GamesAndInk: It's not at all bad, don't worry about it, it was just a curiosity
TheMerricat: Translation into human speak = We want to give them to streamers who'll talk us up a lot and not make us look bad.
EightBitDreams: Maybe they'll only choose streamers
ContingentCat: @TheMerricat as well as some cute kids that will be good in photo ops
EvilBadman: @themerricat Marketing would just send those not have a faux lottery
MolaMolaphant: I'm guessing they bias toward people who buy more games, because that's where they make money
KinoGami: my guess is they'll look for people with active subscriptions and have used the system a lot fairly recently
TheMerricat: @EvilBadman why not both?
Mister_BlueSky: Can I show them my extensive collection of PS1 & PS2 games?
monsieur_squirrel: only around 1400 Kč
monsieur_squirrel: 14000
GapFiller: LordZarano the memory cheats obvs but its always confused me a little how LRR got a real PS3 at launch but still needed replicas sourced from elsewhere for 3 PS3's
EightBitDreams: My dad still plays Pokemon Go, there's a gym right outside his house :)
beowuuf: weird, everyone else has been in to pubg clones, yet sony didn;t go that route...
ritchards: can you pet the dog?
GapFiller: ^
EvilBadman: @themerricat You send free to streamers and lottery the whales.
ArcOfTheConclave: irgress sounds right
Laserbeaks_Fury: that makes sense, community has always been a big part of pokemon
Kerrisis: Ingress, yes.
EightBitDreams: The Harry Potter one was weird. "I caught Hagrid!"
Brozard: Ingress was their first game, IIRC Field Trip was their first app?
GapFiller: wasnt there a lotta behind the tech curtain overlap between Ingress and PoGo?
BlueFingers5: ingress requires 8 players to team up to get the highest level gear. It's as social as PoGO but more competitive

LordZarano: PoGo got a huge boost from nostalgia
EightBitDreams: They made AR better....but not a lot better
EightBitDreams: Most people turn that off
Kerrisis: They've just introduced Mega Evolution into Pogo.
Invitare: Potion Seller! Sell me your strongest potions!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Potion Seller, I'm about to go into battle and I need your strongest potions
BusTed: 😬
EightBitDreams: You could do that prep before leaving the house
RockPusher: We're 12! gabyLul
Joalni: I still like playing PoGO. Got invited to a remote Mega Raid today and it went quite well with multiple people.
Agu_Sakku: snicker impendIngThulhu snicker
Robot_Bones: monster baiter, bait me your strongest monsters
BusTed: Yeah, remote raiding and expanded spin distances have been good for PoGo.
monsieur_squirrel: is monsterbate a verb or a noun
Laserbeaks_Fury: I've seen that anime
EightBitDreams: What if there are bears in those places in real life?
LarkSachrosis: That's The Music of the Spheres
kusinohki: still waiting for Denna Coil glasses....
RockPusher: lrrSPOOP
GapFiller: yeh we all remember many MANY terrible 90's cyber horror straight to video movies
BusTed: That would cause more accidents than PoGo ever did.
Snowcookies: there was an AR fatal frame for DS once right
TheMerricat: That's how you get stories of people stabbing other folk on accident because they got too into the game
j0xer: adam and ben wandering around the moon base screaming would be a cool stream
LarkSachrosis: In order to lick China's boots
LunarJade: @Snowcookies yep. Spirit Camera
GapFiller: Add Oil!
RockPusher: !advice
LRRbot: Hit the glowy thing.
GapFiller: still too much for the CPC
Joalni: @BusTed I hope they'll keep the expanded spin distances after all this. There were some issues before with spots being in difficult to get places.
GapFiller: !badadvice
LRRbot: Teeth are stored in the mouth.
Juliamon: Expanded spin distance still doesn't reach my house
TheMerricat: To be fair @LarkSachrosis they'll lick any large market's boots to make money. Anyone remember how many games ripped out the twin towers after 9/11 out of some sort of 'patriotism'?
monsieur_squirrel: CPC are homophobes, they deserve death
BusTed: I think it'll be difficult for them to ever go back to the old mechanics, Joalni
j0xer: censorship for china money is no different than all the censorship for USA market japan did on NES and SNES
SoaringDragon42: Yeah, my nearest stop is half a mile away. Walkable, but not spin-from-home close.
EightBitDreams: I don't like them changing old games like that. That'd be like changing Bugs Bunny cartoons
Saunabath: The thing is, regional modifications for content are not a new thing, censorship in games has been around always. But usually the censored version is a local version for a specified market, not the global version.
PharaohBender27: Yeah, a lot of media companies are terrified of pissing of the Chinese government and thus losing that "market"
JaysonMaxwell: ^^^ yeah.
XcaliberCrusade subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 10 months!

LarkSachrosis: @TheMerricat Having grown up during the Bush era and The Foreverwar, yeah.
j0xer: same thing with german versions of shooter having green blood imo
Dergib: well Germans are aliens. lol.
PharaohBender27: @Saunabath They probably figured that in the era of the Internet, there's no "we can only censor this for this one area"
PharaohBender27: @XcaliberCrusade lrrHEART
Juliamon: Worldwide is the actual opposite of "localization"
TheMerricat: Agree with @PharaohBender27 if you are a market as large as China, they are going to 'localize' globably just because they know otherwise they'll still get complaints.
GapFiller: the hilarious part here being given that way these things work inside the Middle Kingdom thats the one part of the world where this kinda censorship actually has the least effect
j0xer: sanitized instead of localized
Laserbeaks_Fury: Looks perfectly fine on my CRT
GamesAndInk: This is Heather's normal look--we've been using an AI to upsample her for decades.
EightBitDreams: SNK is owned by "Leyou", who is a Hong Kong based global video game holding company
XcaliberCrusade: @PharaohBender27 lrrHEART
ContingentCat: there we got
ContingentCat: *go
Nigouki: the problem is China has "reach" and gets outraged at thing well outside its borders and jurisdictions and companies fear that
Agu_Sakku: Connection been having issues in general for the past few days all over Twitch.....
Invitare: I thought she was blurring due to moving at super speed
MAPBoardgames: You spend too much time looking at the big picture, you lose focus.
GapFiller: EightBitDreams theres yr explanation for the SNK ting then
GapFiller: cz of the new National Securtiy Law
Nigouki: Reality Labs is where Mark Zuckerberg was manufacturered Kappa
EightBitDreams: The Facebookening of Oculus
EvilBadman: You have to work with a chinese company as a "rep" to even get into china.
TheMerricat: For the first 4 minutes of the stream twitch kept dying on me but I don't think that's what's doing it for heather's video since they use a different streaming option to get to paul's PC and he's the twitch stream.
niccus: previously, facebook had no way to interact with reality
dabudder: I love how Zucc thinks 'reality labs' sounds less totalitarian than 'oculus'
XcaliberCrusade: "Oculus is now Reality Labs" "Oh... cool" Narrator: It was not cool.
Invitare: shouldn't it be "Virtual Labs"? Since it's specifically not real
j0xer: Reality Labs is not far from Cyberdyne
dabudder: ^^
EightBitDreams: @Invitare They are adding Augmented Reality to the group, thus "Reality Labs"
niccus: they can't use cyberdyne, someone else is already using the name
GapFiller: like threads it feels
AgentMagicMaster: I'm glad Apple is doing this, as much as I 'm not a fan of Apple.
GapFiller: the implementation of threads seems relevant as a twitch example here
Juliamon: It's going to cause damage, and that's the POINT of it
JaysonMaxwell: Like the Organ-Donor system, except less ethical.
EvilBadman: GapFiller Or channel points. Or hype tranis
dabudder: @AgentMagicMaster I do think apple does a very good job of making its customers feel safe, *towards other companies*
RockPusher: "… but the data we were secretly collecting hoping to sell will be worth less! However will we cover our GDPR fines if they decide to do anything!"
RockPusher: lrrBEEJ
ContingentCat: Capitalists gonna capitaliza
PharaohBender27: Of course there are mercenary desires! It's capitalism!
j0xer: they dont want others to have your data, because they have your data and they dont want to share
GapFiller: 'whats good for GM is good for America'
Juliamon: Maybe now more apps will offer one-time 'remove ads' payments (I wish)
RockPusher: That's years and years away from resolution
niccus: oh, Epic's developer account just got disabled
TheMerricat: Apple Vs Epic, Apple Vs Facebook, anyone think maybe there's a bit of a trend going here?
EightBitDreams: The judge made the important point, that Apple can't stop Epic from updating Unreal Engine on iOS and Mac
Laserbeaks_Fury: The Marvel one? I think that' sout
GapFiller: it feels the Charles Wilson attitude is v common in Silicon Valley
kusinohki: chances of fortnite still being relevant when the legal dust settles ??
Lithobraker: Anyone else see the arstechnica story where Apple won't allow facebook to tell people that apple takes a 30% cut on event tickets?
AgentMagicMaster: @dabudder I agree!
EvilBadman: @kusinohki Very high because Fortnite is huge even if (you) don't like it
NotCainNorAbel: @Lithobraker I saw the article yeah
dabudder: @TheMerricat I mean, i dont think its a *bad* thing that apple is doing this, but it does show a trend towards apple becoming more 'nintento-esque'
Dergib: PoGo works like that
kusinohki: @EvilBadman was going for more of a comment about how slow the legal system is, but fair
Juliamon: Fortnite is basically Second Life but for kids now
GapFiller: well consider how Fortnite came to prominence
Laserbeaks_Fury: Fortnite is morphing way faster than anyone not playhing can keep up with
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller You mean the Congressman who got the U.S. involved in the Soviet-Afghan War, and wound up helping train people who later used their training against the U.S.?
GrittyGramps: I think they added some sandbox elements?
GapFiller: it wasnt a Battle Royale to begin w/
JaysonMaxwell: That hit air, yeah.
PharaohBender27: I remember that episode!
TheMerricat: @dabudder I'm just wondering if the wolves smell something and are all attacking the king for a reason or if it's just coincidence that two of the biggest 'upstart' Silicon Valley companies are challenging them.
ContingentCat: the default bullying was in a checkpoint yeah
LarkSachrosis: What kind of game was Fortnite originally, before it pivoted into a Battle Royale?
eric_christian_berg: Like "Basic".
Laserbeaks_Fury: A horde survival game
GapFiller: LarkSachrosis a zombie game iirc
Dergib: A Minecraft clone
GapFiller: tho the memory cheats there obvs
Laserbeaks_Fury: Hence all the builting
dabudder: That doesn't suprise me. I think there were minecraft related insults when I was in elementary school
dabudder: idk
Juliamon: Classism starts early.
dabudder: ^^^^
TheMerricat: @LarkSachrosis the F2P game was always Battle Royale. The paid for game was a zombie FPS/Tower Defense type game with survivial/building components.
LarkSachrosis: Didn't James and Paul play it when it first came out? I think I remember that.
ContingentCat: wow
Laserbeaks_Fury: katesEz katesEz katesEz
PharaohBender27: katesEz
EvilBadman: And you need PS+ to play it online
dabudder: @Juliamon yeah... ur not wrong.
GapFiller: maybe its improper to rep other channels onstrem but it feels remiss not to mention Talk Guys here
Dergib: that's all PlayStation online games @evilbadman
Lithobraker: PharaohBender27 The majority of the warlords trained and given equipment by the US actually fought *against* the nascent Taliban.
j0xer: i wonder how much fallguys devs got paid to give away their game for free
kusinohki: "more friendly" version of trying to kill everyone else?
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's going to suck if in a few months it becomes the most toxic, cutthroat BR out there
EightBitDreams: Tetris did a Battle Royale
PharaohBender27: @Lithobraker Ah, that's egg on my face :p
RockPusher: Quite frankly I'm surprised the idea of "Takeshi's Castle: The Game" hasn't been a breakout hit before now…
Mister_BlueSky: A royale with cheese, perhaps.
chefryto90: The bootleg Super Mario Battle Royale tried that
dabudder: Wait was it checkpoint who did the story on the charity costumes that fall guys offered up to coporations?? cause if not i think you guys would love what fully guys did
EvilBadman: @Dergib I am very aware, the point was the audience is already there in PS+
NotCainNorAbel: RockPusher, I agree. It seems like it should have been something in gaming for a long time
Juliamon: dabudder yeah they talked a lot about the bidets
sir_jack_DB: Eliminator in Forza Horizon 4 is that
Loonatic93: Like Tetris 100!
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, Forxa kinda?
Mister_BlueSky: Now I want a Burnout that does that.
Laserbeaks_Fury: *Forza
drthvd3r: Dude, F-Zero as a battle royal game!
kusinohki: I think that's called a demolition derby?
Nigouki: Destruction Derby needs a franchise revival
Dergib: games like fall guys have never really took off before
MAPBoardgames: Pod racing BR?
AgentMagicMaster: sure why not?
BusTed: Burnout BR
Snowcookies: There are racing MMOs, so it's ppossible
Mysticman89: maybe 100 laps, last person in each lap is eliminated?
the_lone_bard: Wreckfest, which was trying to be Demolition Derby, has been trying to do that.
RockPusher: Pocket Racing!!!
Mysticman89: or 99 laps i guess
dabudder: that sounds boring
BusTed: Or BuRnout
XcaliberCrusade: Hot Wheels battle-royale would be great
kdefinition: Oh man a 100 man destruction derby would be a pure lag fest
MolaMolaphant: the destruction derby game was in the ps5 games showcase
BusTed: Mobile, yup.
niccus: did... they fix the thing where only the host gets quest completion?

dabudder: also quick off-topic question for paul: does anyone in the 'friday nights' crew now play legends of runeterra? ive been really enjoying the new expansion
GapFiller: needing everyone to buy their own copy of the game for multiplayer what is this the 90's?
j0xer: spawn versions stopped when devs figured out CDkeys
Dergib: what game is this?
Lithobraker: PharaohBender27 however a lot of those groups eventually joined the Taliban effectively gunpoint. Kinda like how the more moderate militias in Syria got swallowed by Daesh or HTS.
GapFiller: Crystal Chronicles
Dergib: is it a stand alone game or a actual sequel?
ContingentCat: sorry but GPA? all I can think of is Grade point average and somehow I don't think that's right
GapFiller: thinking abt it now the plugging GBA's into a GC ting feels like a precursor to the WiiU and the Switch
Sarah_Serinde: Lithobraker PharaohBender27 Ok I haven't been following this conversation but this sounds too politics and not on topic
SeiichiSin: So... I see we have a 404 error.

EightBitDreams: The game was good practice
j0xer: might as well count it, the stats for this season are all messed up anyway

UnboundLaconicity: The power of visualising you goals, I guess, but with a graphics chip.
Mysticman89: now the question is, can you pilot a plane after mastering flight sim
LordZarano: what's a no hitter?
ritchards: he didn't know he could do it until the computer showed that it modelled that he could
Mysticman89: I love "games"
dabudder: ah yes, the metaphysical game
ContingentCat: when is a video game not a video game?
dabudder: the worlds most dangerous game
dabudder: game theory
niccus: nour?

EightBitDreams: Sounds like Job Simulator in VR
RockPusher: Screw with food? katesLewd gabyLewd
BusTed: Like 'nourish'?
