EightBitDreams: Yeah, you have to check the point before you can chill at it
GapFiller: which yr think aint that Beejs turf
DigitalSeahorse: uh...
PharaohBender27: @LordZarano Yeah, don't want to have to tell Ms. Dery we didn't do your homework
DigitalSeahorse: oh
GapFiller: also that stinger was v nice
PharaohBender27: @DigitalSeahorse Did you forget to do your homework!? :O
RebekahWSD: We had homework? Oh gods, it's high school all over again and it's been over a decade help
GapFiller: gotta say callin it homework really encourages people to go watch the episode
GapFiller: thats some grade a advertising there
PharaohBender27: @RebekahWSD It's a joke lrrHEATHER made some weeks ago, that watching the Checkpoint episode was "homework" for chat before Chillpoint
RebekahWSD: Oh. I don't always get jokes. I will relax slightly.
Raiz0k: EHLO everyone.
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @Raiz0k ! PrideWave
kusinohki: Hewwo!
PharaohBender27: @RebekahWSD I mean, you should still watch the Checkpoint episode before a Chillpoint :p
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @kusinohki ! PrideWave
RebekahWSD: It seems like a good idea!
DigitalSeahorse: I like the youtube membership video
Raiz0k: It is, if only for the entertainment value.
PixelArtDragon: It's like homework. Yes, you should do it, but also I'm living proof that you can get through large swaths of life without doing it and turn out fine in the end

GapFiller: its worth noting Heather called it homework once as a gag
GapFiller: and its we the chat who are running w/ it
GapFiller: running it into the ground if anything
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller I mean, it's what we do katesShrug
Raiz0k: We're probably halfway to the outer core right now @GapFiller .
GapFiller: as w any internet gag comes a point where it starts to feel like one of EGMs April Fools
PharaohBender27: That I'm probably running it into the ground more than anyone else, truth be told
PharaohBender27: *And I'm
Raiz0k: Nah, it's a team effort.

kusinohki: paul detaches his beard and throws in in the washing machine...
cuttlefishman: Is... Is /Beej okay?
GapFiller: theres things wrong w/ all our minds Beej
GapFiller: its not just you
RockPusher: Money laundering is old hat - body laundering is the new hotness
Raiz0k: Any other year, it would be a worrying sign...
PixelArtDragon: It could be worse, my wife said twice in a row that she put something into the sink to bake
GapFiller: phunny tangent old friend of mine years ago used to used egg whites for conditioner
Raiz0k: Really? I don't remember my beard getting itchy since it went about a month long from "long stubble".
wildpeaks: ow, yeah masks would get caught on the little hairs
EightBitDreams: If you grow your moustache long enough, you can weave it into a mask
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, normal surgical masks are fun, and N95 masks are EXTRA fun in that regard!
ash16180: When did they start? Did they talked about the Ubisoft story?
GapFiller: oh ooph them beard mask trubs lrrPAUL lrrHEART
constablecrab: Can confirm. MaskBeard is a thing.
PharaohBender27: @ash16180 They haven't gotten to any of the stories yet

GapFiller: whats so controversial abt Ubisoft being as tonde deaf as usual? Kappa
Cool_Jean_Aunt: tom clancy's squad goals Kappa

OldManJohnsonMB: yeah the dev cycle for these games is so long that they just get stuck in the sunk cost fallacy means they push forward even when it is a Bad Idea
GapFiller: thing is ofc this is the kind of incredibly juvenile understanding of edgy and controversial that yrd hoped we moved on from when 4ch stopped being cool 10 years ago

PharaohBender27: Whoops, did not actually mean to make that gift anonymous :p
AshBurnem: BlackLivesMatter
wildpeaks: thank you PharaohBender27
GapFiller: ironically enough look at who has all the money
Raiz0k: This narrative is literally one of the primary ones to counter any protest movement by the establishment.
Amentur: BlackLivesMatter
PharaohBender27: No problem, @wildpeaks ! :)
ash16180: Love you, and your point about the rising fist is mostly correct. However, one clear exception is Rabbi Kahane movement, the one shown with yellow backyard. It's an ultra-nationalist racist religious Jewish group. It was a small political party, until the Israeli government declared it a terrorist organization.
ash16180: Kahane have citations regarding Palestinians like (free translate) "Arabs out! I want them out of here. Alive, and if not alive then dead". I grew up as an orthodox Jew in the Israeli settlements, and even there Kahane was considered much too extreme. Please don't show that symbol.

GapFiller: Raiz0k no lie I genuinely fell outta my chair w/ laughter reading that Scots wikip story
Joalni: This is why teachers keep repeating that you have to check the sources for wikipedia you use.
PharaohBender27: @Raiz0k @GapFiller What's that story? I haven't heard it
ununmik: hi
DigitalSeahorse: bunnnTR BlackLivesMatter ExtraLife
Raiz0k: @GapFiller : yeah, I laughed outside and cried inside a little bit, especially after seeing many people confessing *that* was their impression of Scots.
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : tl;dr it turned out a significant part of Scots Wikipedia was being prepared by someone with NO knowledge of Scots, who'd followed the algorithm of "use English as base, search/replace for Scottish accent stereotypes".

Pteraspidomorphi: It's still like that in germany, I think
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 right!?
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 The cherries on the cake are: 1. It's being going on for EIGHT YEARS. 2. MULTIPLE PEOPLE that actually know Scots were contacting the people responsible and being blown of.
wildpeaks: oh wow
PharaohBender27: @Raiz0k katesPalm
Orgmastron: I think they recently made an exception for educational purposes?
Raiz0k: The main perpetrator tries to justify themselves that they "were only 12 when they started", but you know - eight years.
kat2kool: gamers understand palette swaps
PharaohBender27: @Orgmastron An FPS video game wouldn't qualify for that, though
PixelArtDragon: I just find the whole idea of a popular movement that is actually motivated by a shadowy organization to be at best a bad idea, at worst outright peddling dangerous conspiracy theories.
Orgmastron: ^
PharaohBender27: ^
ununmik: who else misses the friday night series?
GapFiller: ^
kusinohki: the protest group is protesting climate change?? not sure that's better...
ipoddodd: @PharaohBender27 I learn all history from my FPS games!
Lithobraker: The game is like 1 inch away of accusing George Soros of paying protesters.
PharaohBender27: @PixelArtDragon Like, that's literally what led to some of history's worst atrocities
lirazel64: @pharaohbender27 Yeah, at this point it's lazy writing.
Orgmastron: Yup @Lithobraker
EvilBadman: Has...has been fired
DigitalSeahorse: or harassment having been a thing someone did
GapFiller: surprise surprise
PixelArtDragon: Ubisoft going ahead with making this game definitely casts a big shadow on their claims that they actually consult a diverse group of people when making their games.
ipoddodd: If he tells you to stop, you'd best really reevaluate it
pyronils80: Its way more compicated as you said, ( I am german), basically you are talking about several laws against the Third Reich iconografy, against violence propaganda laws etc. !
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : you could even say it becomes pretty Umbral.
lirazel64: Push boundaries when the boundaries are unjust, not because they inconvenience your predelictions.
GapFiller: the story (and the problem in general) ofc being when it reaches the point where its obvs the rot is not down to one single person
Raiz0k: I mean CKIII is non-controversial in the same way a flashbang is "invisible".
Lithobraker: The whole protesters are being supported by a clandestine global group has been an anti-Semitic trope since 1903 with the Protocols of Zion hoax.
Orgmastron: ^
Genderi: As a CK2 player, I'm surprised how popular CK3 is
Raiz0k: @Lithobreaker - as I mentioned before, it's way older (for antisemitism in particular, another example is blood libel).
cuttlefishman: CK2 was released in 2004
Raiz0k: Yeah, they've hyped CK3 amazingly way.
Raiz0k: *well
Dared00: plus, CK3 is in Game Pass
Zaraka00: I started playing CK2 realizing its free now and it is too much fun
Raiz0k: Ah, CKIII: Gor.
Raiz0k: Or Antigor in this case I guess.
Drasvin: To a computer, everything is math
Genderi: CK2 had homosexuality, and only that. It was also a negative trait.
Raiz0k: Oof.
wildpeaks: computer doesn't judge, computer is just happy to see you
PixelArtDragon: CK3 looks great, but I'm very skeptical of their "let's sell the expansions before we've even announced them"
kat2kool: frankly the option for asexuality alone is making me strongly consider this game
PixelArtDragon: @kat2kool Same
Orgmastron: !computer
Mushbie: okay but can you marry a horse like in CK2?
Orgmastron: Friend Computer Loves You
wildpeaks: :D
Genderi: (amused) it's very programmer to, when putting in additional sexualities, to do the 4 binary possibilities
Raiz0k: Apparently from Checkpoint you can romance your own daughter, so in all likelyhood.
lirazel64: @raiz0k oh gods... I hate even thinking about Gor.
Raiz0k: It is extremely iffy, to put it mildly.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the choice is already being made for you in most games, may as well let the player choose if they can
Raiz0k: Re CKIII, in general the Medieval times were wayyyyy wilder in terms of sexuality that people think.

kat2kool: the victorians have a lot to answer for
lirazel64: See the Theban Band, as one example.
Genderi: CK2 has improved slightly over its lifetime, but it really suffered from patriachal heterosexuality being built into the game engine from the start
GapFiller: ReynardWrecca CK3
wildpeaks: Crusaders Kings 3
Raiz0k: Yeah, the approach they went with is an excellent solution for the issue of representation (in comparison with e.g. Total War, where you could argue that the cultural changes were "forced").
ReynardWrecca: Ah, got it. Yeah, that's a thing; and I'm saying that as a former member of the British Armed Forces!
Genderi: One big one was that Merchant Families were hardcoded as patriarchal, despite being able to otherwise enable gender equality
lirazel64: @reynardwrecca and the "reality" thereof.
Raiz0k: Hah, on that - fun fact, in some countries, like my own, the ruler had the title of "King". So any female rulers were also Kings.
cuttlefishman: Adoption exists
cuttlefishman: game solves for it, can recognize people to be of your line
RockPusher: adoptive hereditary monarchy
GapFiller: Raiz0k who says King has to be a gendered title eh
Raiz0k: Exactly!
Kibbik: PrideKoala
kat2kool: some ace people still get horny

NightValien28: spy cat
wildpeaks: nimlotBeelzebub
RandomTrivia: That does sound like a cat
kusinohki: cats can sneak everywhere!

AranMathai: yes.

lirazel64: ScaredyCat
GapFiller: yes Paul all cats are secretly spy masters
Orgmastron: Yes Paul
ReynardWrecca: ALL cats are secretly spies, yes. Also, when you think they're purring they're secretly drilling.
Genderi: You can indeed appoint your cat as your spymaster, if you are not of sane mind
Raiz0k: @ipoddodd : and this exactly the example from my country :). And she wasn't the only regent (Bathory's wife was also co-regent).
PharaohBender27: katesLoaf
Joalni: Hush, Paul CoolCat Don't say too much
ash16180: Did the spy cat wear boots?
ImmortalLen: I'm downloading the free to play version right now. Thanks for the game recommendation!
wildpeaks: Dwarf Fortress has so much depth
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 okay whenever I watch Kate form now on gonna be back o head thinking what is Loafs agenda here?
niccus: oh yeah and it takes a long time
Zaraka00: Dwarf Fortress world creation is the best benchmarking tool
Raiz0k: Oh, the worldbuilding generator for DF is a thing to behold.
GamesAndInk: It takes sooooooo long to generate, because it gets SO detailed
ConspicuousCompiler: What I love is that DF has the craftspeople in your settlement make art about significant events. Including, for instance, about that dwarf (who still lives at your fort) who murdered another dwarf last year
Raiz0k: And there's also the possibility to take part in it in the adventure mode IIRC.
ash16180: Wonder how having whispering little birds and eating little birds works for the spy cat
GapFiller: mmm delicious microtransactions
Mushbie: @ConspicuousCompiler or dwarfs being murdered by elephants.
GapFiller: for a full price game even
EvilBadman: Apparently the narrative of the Avengers is quite good and the multiplayer/microtransactions is just meh?
PharaohBender27: And, per Jim Sterling's review, representing in dull, washed-out colors
PixelArtDragon: Or rather, I hope you /don't/ like it, because you're going to have to pay a lot if you want it
kusinohki: iron man does have a lot suits in the comics
kat2kool: Petition for Frog Thor!
TheOtherTrevor: progressive view of race relations: everyone is just a pallet swap of each other
RandomTrivia: Ooh, can I have a Warmachine skin that looks like Terrence Howard?
Raiz0k: So are you saying microtransactions are actually on-brand in this case, Paul :> ?
Driosenth: please don't say Thor-skin
kusinohki: beta ray bill. think thor with a horse face
ReynardWrecca: "What about Beta-Ray Bill?" - that is the FIRST time that question has been asked in a long time.
Joalni: He's got a horse face!
kat2kool: Beta-Ray Bill is also a space horse!
cuttlefishman: Did Paul see the Snowfire news?
Drasvin: Alien horse thor
PixelArtDragon: Please do not say "thorskin" again Kappa
cuttlefishman: He's back in the comics
GapFiller: TheOtherTrevor ah the Mortal Kombat solution
codatski: Wait isn't Thor alien Thor?
beowuuf: Frog Thor - straight palette swap MiniK
Joalni: Ragnarok
Raiz0k: @Driosenth : almost beats "The Riders of the Iron Horse" from the current Dice Friends.
wildpeaks: you get a hammer and you get a hammer, everyone gets a hammer
RandomTrivia: Wasn't that where Stormbreaker originally was?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: ragnarok was the best
Raiz0k: The first shot's free!
wildpeaks: the "free to pay" model
PixelArtDragon: If I wanted to spend that much on a base game + making it look nice, I'd get into Warhammer 40K :P
EightBitDreams: Remember when $2 Horse Armor caused a huge outcry?
ConspicuousCompiler: Sports games have been doing that for a couple years. Madden and FIFA gamers just suck it up and pay.
Invitare: give them a slice of cake and they buy your whole bakery
Mysticman89: up front cost+subscription fee+microtransdactions is the full trifecta
PharaohBender27: @EightBitDreams How little we knew back then . . .
AshBurnem: It costs over $700 to play Sims 4.
PixelArtDragon: @EightBitDreams Wow, that takes me back
kat2kool: definitely not a dystopian concept at all
LordZarano: @mysticman89 you missed the season pass
SacrificialToast: remember when you could just unlock cool things by playing video games?
GamesAndInk: The cost of making games goes up, yet games cost $60 in the 90s and they cost $60 now .. but gamers riot if the price goes up. So we have to pay for the game somehow
TheBorzoi: Tony Stark has Stark Industries. He doesn't need a brand deal
Invitare: that's a myth
kusinohki: benchmark - the new standard (copyright revocorp, all rights reserved)
Raiz0k: You're thinking too small @Mysticman89 , there's still room. Selling children into servitude, prepaying with your organs, the possibilities are limitless!
Joalni: There are dozens of us!
Dared00: hell yeah, Tiger & Bunny rules
RandomTrivia: Stark Industries, specifically the Tower was a big part of the Avengers brand in-universe
djalternative: I know what Tiger and Bunny!
Gekyouryuu: Tiger & Bunny SO GOOD
AshBurnem: Dozens!
Pteraspidomorphi: Maybe even three dozens
JaysonMaxwell: sergeHi "Diminishing Percent" ... that feels about right.
ConspicuousCompiler: Sims universe stuff is one of the few DLCs I actually feel is totally worthwhile and fair. There is an insane amount of detailed, custom content produced for these really cheap little chunks for people who want that specific thing.
GapFiller: I remember watching Tiger+Bunny at Uni anime club
Mushbie: "Softbank"
GapFiller: good times
Orgmastron: Tiger & Bunny <3
ReynardWrecca: The 'rankings' system in One Punch Man always made me laugh :)
Gekyouryuu: they had legit PEPSI ads featuring the character backed by Pepsi
mowdownjoe: I tried watching it. It's... okay.
Lithobraker: If I'm going to pay a bunch of money for a character model, I at least want it to go to an artist I've commissioned for a furry OC Kappa
ConspicuousCompiler: I would love all games to have the level of "Pay $5 for extra stuff that very specifically panders to you." that Sims games have.
Mysticman89: Add some 'loyalty' bonuses for making sure people have fomo about ever letting their stuff run out
Traion: GamesAndInk that ignores several factors: a) DLC and special editions and season passes already increased the price b) the market is way bigger so instead of moving 100k units they are now moving 5 million units. And games don't have much of a per unit cost
Raiz0k: Ah, sponsored by Nuka-Cola Quantum.
Plasterboard: Sorta like Mystery Men
BusTed: Like Transformers.
AshBurnem: Pepsi Optimus Prime was a delight.
kat2kool: that's disturbingly brilliant
Plasterboard: Provides continuity

AshBurnem: 4 skins.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: !adult
niccus: lord four skins
GapFiller: !sire
ConspicuousCompiler: I think we should excise these 4 skins.
3and4fifths: Fore?
PixelArtDragon: !sire
GapFiller: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a community, not a casino.
kusinohki: 4 skins? (hur hur hur)
Kibbik: how many skins?
Mai_Andra: <insert image of Asuka wearing "Cup Noodles" outfit, holding the title>
RebekahWSD: I oughta have been solo if that's the case?
RebekahWSD: It, even
TheBorzoi: Why don't 4 million of us just put in $1 and get 4 million skins made?
RandomTrivia: That was very nice of them
JaysonMaxwell: That feels ... legally nebulous.
iris_of_ether: katesNice
Raiz0k: Which shows 4 skins are worth less than whole skins.
Orgmastron: @Mai_Andra Asuka makes it work though

EvilBadman: We get yet another ninja branding thing
PixelArtDragon: I'm genuinely impressed that a bidet company had that much money to spend on PR
niccus: maybe we were getting peach skins anyways
theleerm: i bet no one is gonna end up using it
Joalni: They kinda ruined it for me too. The costume just doesn't feel right.
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : a "bidet" company, yes. A "washlet" company? Let it rain on the weeb signal!
wildpeaks: design by commitee
kusinohki: @PixelArtDragon the cynical part of me wonders if they ever thought they actually pay it assuming they would get outbid.
AshBurnem: From Ninja "Blevins" Tyler.
GapFiller: we all remember 'Dark' kids cartoons right
wildpeaks: ohh that would have been cool
kat2kool: at least it wasn't a toxic toxic bird skin
theleerm: id far prefer the tushy one
LordZarano: There's already a ninja costume in Fall Guys isn't there?
kat2kool: W H A T
Joalni: There is @LordZarano
accountmadeforants: It did include a pointed mention of FOMO...
GapFiller: the Nintendo story which was written and presented by G not Beej yeh
EightBitDreams: It was 6am but a total surprise drop, no announcement
AshBurnem: We call it the Reserve List.
kusinohki: disney owns all the vaults
Joalni: "Potentially sensitive material" LUL @Mai_Andra
Plasterboard: FOMO no mo
rrtycoon2: Manufactured Scarcity
JaysonMaxwell: @AshBurnem LuvOops
Bearudite: FOMO is a hell of a thing
Mushbie: the disney vault needs to die just like Mickey mouse
GapFiller: lolo Sough of the South
Gekyouryuu: that's in the Gulag
Raiz0k: Fnar, fnar, nice one Beej.
EightBitDreams: I think Nintendo is losing the license for Mario's likeness, because he was based on a real person
kat2kool: Song of the South was taken out back and shot
eric_christian_berg: In the Disney Oubliette.
GapFiller: phun phact used to own a Song of the South VHS
Invitare: the key to that vault has been thrown away
BloodForTheCorelab: Damn straight beej! give us filmore you cowards!
DeM0nFiRe: Last Remnant got removed from purchase on PC so Squenix could release a remastered version. Only problem is they didnt release the remaster for PC, so you just cannot buy it for PC anymore
djalternative: Filmore or RIOT!
Raiz0k: The Disney In Pacem.
BlueMechanic: Yeah, Filmore was great
BloodForTheCorelab: djalternative RIOT!
aitsu100: does Disney+ have Treasure Planet is the one thing i want to know
Mai_Andra: I'm still waiting for Disney's 'I-man" to be added. atozPheebs
EikoandMog: I want that Game and Watch SO MUCH
GapFiller: the odd thing personally is that at this point yr dont see more companies doing the outta the box for a moment once every 7 years ting
kusinohki: @Mai_Andra I-man?? was that the story where a guy breaths a weird gas and becomes invulnerable?
djalternative: I had tiger electronics
ReynardWrecca: I was alive before the NES came out!
rrtycoon2: Oh, I used to see Game and Watches on display at an old big box store back in the 80s
ButButTheJesus: a PORTABLE game?!
Raiz0k: Don't they GapFiller, the constant "reboots" etc.?
Decaped: Game n watch HD
virre_: Oh I remember not being allowed everyone else having a Game and Watch
GapFiller: Raiz0k constant reboots v the 7 year rule sounds like the worst who wd win in a fight
ash16180: I heared a funny conspiracy idea, that Disney made "Frozen" so people won't find out Walt Disney body is frozen when they google "Disney Frozen"
Raiz0k: Hah, so it does.
EvilBadman: I think the March 2021 thing is pointing to something more than just the "vault" since the online only Mario 35 game has the same time restraint. What the hell that is, I have no idea.
LurkerSpine: No one in my town had a Game & Watch, but I was born in the mid-80s
RandomTrivia: The Wayback Machine is a treasure
GapFiller: show of hands how many of us were alive before the Gameboy came out?
GapFiller: o7
Mai_Andra: @kusinohki That's the one.
djalternative: yeah. that was on archive
Splash4Mirrodin: o7
LurkerSpine: Tiger Electronics were very popular, but I don't know if they were pre-GameBoy
rrtycoon2: For 90s kids, it was the pregenitor to tiger handhelds.
Raiz0k: o7
EightBitDreams: But I would have killed for the Zelda one
kat2kool: @aitsu100 Treasure Planet is in fact on Disney +
virre_: When did the Game Gear and Atari Lynx come out?
Joalni: Oh wow, I'm actually younger than original Gameboy.
GapFiller: virre_ abt the same time as the Gameboy
DeM0nFiRe: First handheld game I played was a Tiger Electronics football game. I dont think I ever even learned how to play it though lol
Dared00: iirc, it's 4980 yen in Japan
aitsu100: ok thnks @kat2kool
Texan_Reverend: But at _exactly_ $50 dollars....
Bearudite: Beej's disney Vault
EikoandMog: 4980 Yen so around $50 is a good bet, Beej.
TStodden: Just buy 2 (one to play, one for "The Vault")
Raiz0k: Didney Vaurt!
EightBitDreams: That's why I ordered the Atari VCS
EightBitDreams: To have it
EightBitDreams: It looks cool
GapFiller: Gameboy 1989 Atari Lynx 1989 Game Gear 1990
DremoraLorde: Buy one to use, one for the vault, exept don't buy the one for the vault

Splash4Mirrodin: 2.087456 games
Raiz0k: Crap, I still remember reading about Lynx and how revolutionary it will be.
rrtycoon2: The GBA mini?
Dared00: oh yeah, Polygon says $49.99 USD
Gizmoloid: @EightBitDreams Oh yeah, Zelda game&watch. At some point I gave up on waiting for someone to remake or emulate it and played one of GBA G&W collections to unlock it. Worth it.
accountmadeforants: I've seen them for 45 euros here.
AshBurnem: GBA Pico
LurkerSpine: Why is it all time limited?
wildpeaks: yeah it's too bad it's time limited
EikoandMog: What a shame they stole it from that one guy that developed one and gave them a C&D
SeismicLawns: the time limited factor of these is kinda dumb
Raiz0k: Except PT wasn't exactly planned that way IIRC.
SeismicLawns: PT was just removed because of legal, not because of being purposefully time limited
EightBitDreams: Now people will sell Switches for $1000 because they have Jump Rope installed
djalternative: Mario Battle Royale was already made. It's called Soviet Jump
Joalni: I'm just glad more people will get to experience Super Mario Sunshine.
Dared00: I mean, if it's 100% online, then I can imagine Nintendo just turning off the servers on March 31st
EvilBadman: Again, I would not be surprised if there's a major Nintendo thing March of 2021 at this point
EikoandMog: DLC later!
Raiz0k: Rule of Three probably?
EightBitDreams: Maybe Nintendo only invested in a 500GB hard drive for their shop, so they have to "clean the fridge" now and then
SeismicLawns: Sunshine also apparently doesn't have gamecube controller support
DremoraLorde: They want you to play galaxy 1 so that you'll buy 2 seperately
EikoandMog: @SeismicLawns WHAT
Raiz0k: Bundling two games seems to little, four glazes over the eyes (speaking as a rando of course).
Raiz0k: *too
djalternative: isn't Galaxy 2 already in HD?
codatski: Has anyone at Nintendo officially acknowledged/spoken to the rationale behind making it limited time? I have been wracking my brain and I cannot think of ANY good reason for them to do this crap other than pushing Q4 earnings
rrtycoon2: I can only assume storage limitations...but that seems iffy.
EightBitDreams: The believable theory I read about All Stars 3D was it wouldn't fit on an 8GB Switch cart with Galaxy 2
Texan_Reverend: The Super Mario World / Super Mario All-Stars combinations SNES cartridge is still my favorite SNES cart in my collection.
Mushbie: @djalternative it was a Wii game so no. not HD
EikoandMog: I hope Galaxy 2 hits as DLC. I pulled out my Wii to play it recently and... my Wiimotes don't work anymore.
Raiz0k: @codatski : sadly, that might be it.
Mai_Andra: I got Kirby All-Stars with my SNES. It was great. amisoWow
djalternative: @Mushbie huh. I though 2 was on wii u
BusTed: Bring back the Nintendo Power time trial competition!
Bearudite: L IS REAL
ButButTheJesus: I got Donkey Kong Country with SNES in 1995
wildpeaks: oh wow
Pteraspidomorphi: But is waluigi in it?
Dared00: Put Luigi in Smash, cowards
aitsu100: make yoshi playable you cowards
EightBitDreams: A lot of people wanted them to use the DS version of Mario 64, wehich did have Luigi
LurkerSpine: The Mario Kart thing looked weird and possibly neat, possibly terrible
Mushbie: @djalternative it was as a digital release for the Wii U, because it could run Wii games
djalternative: Luigi is in New Super Mario 64, along with Wario and Yoshi
Pteraspidomorphi: I loved the Mario Kart thing, but I don't have the home type or space for it. I suspect that will be the case for most people
mercano82: Is the 64 All Stars build even including the new DS features? (I really wish they had taken the time to do a proper remaster, rather than using N64 level graphics)
SeismicLawns: they released mario all stars too many damn times
BusTed: Beej always on the hustle.
EightBitDreams: @mercano82 No, it's based on the Japanese N64 Mario 64 with rumble pak support
wildpeaks: they've hit the jackpot on that investment
EikoandMog: @mercano82 DS did have a graphical rehaul. It was just a launch DS game so it was kinda crummy.

BlueMechanic: I have seen a shop called Kid's Exchange, but they were clever enough to put a hyphen in the website name
Mushbie: Kids Exchange
Raiz0k: The "Whitelabel SCP Foundation" game?
Brozard: I saw Formar playing it the other day too, looks great
wildpeaks: Warehouse 13 meets SCP
Foxmar320: Who brozard? 😜
Mushbie: @BlueMechanic I am pretty sure there is an experts exchange that didn't do that :p
wildpeaks: and it's even coming to GOG with all the dlcs
Raiz0k: @BlueMechanic : probably because their predecessors dating from the time of the aforementioned nursery did not!
Raiz0k: ("funnily" enough, that misreading is even more controversial in 2020... )
SeismicLawns: 1st step: git gud Step 2: give up
EikoandMog: But that's literally what Celeste did and it got praised?
PixelArtDragon: "Try gitting gud, you scrubs"

wildpeaks: difficulty sliders go both way, they can also make things harder
Raiz0k: What, didn't they play OG Prince of Persia?
Dared00: TBH I agree with Kotaku - accessibility mode isn't neccessarily for people who want "no challenge", but for people for whom the default experience is "too much challenge". For many people, Control will still be challenging, even with accessibility modes on.
BusTed: Catering the player's experience to what they're comfortable with is entirely the point of these options, I'd say.
Timerquack subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 38 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Timerquack! (Today's storm count: 24)
Raiz0k: Yeah, there's certainly a risk of alienating the actually disadvantaged players, simply through the virtue of "solving" accessibility through rolling out the red carpet vs actually providing a tailored challenge.
Armyguy0: kind of reminds me of pathologic 2
accountmadeforants: I still love CrossCode's difficulty sliders. I appreciate that they distinguish between "things being too fast" and "things hitting too hard":
Armyguy0: And all the fallout from it being "to hard"
GapFiller: thats a v optimistic reading Beej
Raiz0k: It's a difficult problem to solve, given the actual evolutionary pressure behind this mentality.
accountmadeforants: I just wish they also went the other way.
wildpeaks: TLOU2 has some good accessibility options too and it doesn't detract from the game
kusinohki: the "ask older sib to get past this boss" feature
djalternative: Sometimes you only have an hour in a night and don't want to spend it grinding a single hallway.
wildpeaks: exactly
TheQuantumMechanic33: is there still going to be FNPF tonight?
iris_of_ether: or "ask the spouse to get past this jump"
wildpeaks: or even something common like having other people around so you can't be completely focused on the game
Snowcookies: I like starting on the easiest difficulty for my first playthrough of certain games
RandomTrivia: Sometimes you just want "cheat code go brr"
Mushbie: remember back when single player games had cheat codes?
djalternative: Doom still has cheats
Raiz0k: @djalternative : hear, hear. OTOH, I more often find myself gravitating towards a reframing of "it's not grinding, it's solving a puzzle" for games like the Dooms.
wildpeaks: :D
Raiz0k: :D
EikoandMog: Reverse psychology!
wildpeaks: I think they do that intentionally sometimes
HorusFive: There will one day be a discussion about a disagreement between designer and producer- where they have different ideas about adding or keeping out accessibility options
kusinohki: penny arcade tanuki suit strip...
Pteraspidomorphi: I don't remember which game it was, but there was a puzzle game that gave you the solutions after you failed a couple of times and you couldn't turn it off
Raiz0k: Vista? It's at least since 98!
RandomTrivia: That's a Clippy thing
Ukon_Cairns: oh god, seems like every time i died in Breath of the Wild its like "hey, why are you even fighting, why not try cooking" benginRage
Snowcookies: "You've been stuck on this puzzle for too long, I'm just gonna auto skip you"
Raiz0k: "You've pressed Shift too often!"
Ctabbe: I know this isn't the subject, but this really reminded me of when i bought the ring fit. i could play fine, but my girlfriend who had had knee surgery, couldn't squat fully and was just unable to get a good score. it really ruined the experience for her
djalternative: @Raiz0k I was more thinking of RPGs where the numbers must go up
EvilBadman: Doom Eternal offered me an armor that reduces damage after I banged my head on a boss encounter
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, for that genre that's no fun @djalternative .
Barb4rian: Doom Eternal on Nightmare: Here, you've died for two hours straight, want some super armor? -- No, Doom, no. I put it on Nightmare for a reason!
Raiz0k: Barb4rian, can you shut off that spybot that you apparently have on my machine?
EvilBadman: I'm on ultra-violent, Barb4rian, and woooof. the Doom hunter mission
Raiz0k: Anyway, I guess it's a difference between what's the focus of the game - the challenge itself or anything else.
Blue_Anteater: @Ctabbe That's really unfortunate! I think that they recently added more accessibility options, though, and you can change the settings for certain exercises. I haven't checked, but squats might be included!
BusTed: Glamour Shots.
Barb4rian: @EvilBadman Just wait until you find a Marauder ;) -- @Raiz0k Nah, I like watching your playthroughs :D
djalternative: It's mostly about data manipulation and mass photo processing
samanthamaybe: @CAKHost slytqLewd slytqLewd

GrittyGramps: lawn signs in general are kinda weird to me
BearPsychologist: Joe Bidland
Raiz0k: Bidenforming.
SeismicLawns: Joe Bisland
Vyous: So, a secret about political organizing, lawn signs don't actually move the needle. They just make the supporters feel better, so this fits really well.
korvys: Kinda makes sense, though. For the same reason you put them outside your home - you're proud of the candidate or whatever. Which is already kinda weird, but moving that to your digital lawn isn't.
m_cable: Hey. They got to increase younger voter turnout somehow.
PharaohBender27: @GrittyGramps Fun fact, it was a guy in my state (Oregon) who started that strategy when he was running for Senate in the 1960s
djalternative: I'd go to Joe Biland
Snowcookies: oh yeah
GrittyGramps: huh, interesting
GrittyGramps: to me it just seems like a way to paint a target on your back (or rather, house)
GrittyGramps: no matter who you support
Raiz0k: @Vyous : as a non-American, the concept of lawn signs is *extremely* alien, looking at it objectively. It's essentially like some sort of tribal effigy that's only missing the severed head of your enemy.
niccus: to be fair, lawns are also a very american (-suburban) thing
EikoandMog: There's a couple in Australia but it's only for the real die-hards.

RatekStormcrow: so mario cart bullet ?
RandomTrivia: So it basically hacks for you?
AlienNanobots: If your sacrifices have pleased the Gods
kusinohki: does fall guys really need a catch up mechanic??
Mysticman89: randomly appears, but it could cause harm as well as good rather that strictly catch up is my read of it
Wicker_Guide: it's a holy rubber band hammer
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : yeah, sure looks that way. What I'm personally concerned about, given the US' cultural influence, is the "leaking" of this attitude everywhere.
EvilBadman: @kusinohki One that's fair and requires skill, sure.
Raiz0k: @Wicker_Guide :
Vyous: @Raiz0k They are really bizzare. Political organizers don't actually want to spend effort giving them out, but volunteers constantly clamor for them. It's a status symbol thing I guess.

BusTed: 😬
Raiz0k: @Vyous : the scary thing is that it's an inherent trait for people apparently. The majority party over here is following the same rhetoric and still winning by a sufficient margin, despite the fact that everyone doesn't vote from them regardless of their position on the spectrum actively hates them.

EikoandMog: It's a 50:50 if the reunion album sucks or rocks.
korvys: Vlambeer 1, and Vlambeer A
GhostValv: who gets the Vlam and who gets the beer?
EightBitDreams: I worked for a small startup, where the owner decided he didn't want to be in the game industry anymore. He gave us all 3 months of pay and said "Here's the money, you can keep working a couple weeks to ship this game if you want, regardless of the money." We all finished and shipped the game
GapFiller: imagine if that ever happend to LRR
Dared00: my favourite part of the Vlambeer story is the Polygon article when they were talking about how they aren't really friends or anything and Vlambeer growing into what it ended up being was pretty much an accident
LurkerSpine: @mowdownjoe I figured it'd be pretty huge news
Raiz0k: I mean, that's the way it *should* in a properly working free market....

GirlPainting: did LRR play the Yargle day event on arena?
EightBitDreams: @Molladia If you look at the PAX schedule there are at least a couple LRR events
Raiz0k: @EvilBadman : is that the studio involved in Skullgirls?
djalternative: Normal or Rotiserie? @LoadingReadyRun
LurkerSpine: @GirlPainting They did! It's on yesterday's VOD
Dared00: @Molladia this should be correct:
ButButTheJesus: Gene, Val, or Ant?
EvilBadman: @Raiz0k Aye.
GirlPainting: thx LurkerSpine
Raiz0k: Oh, that's sad.
GapFiller: no Kathleen Island Tour this week cz theyre retooling that show for a reschedule
Molladia: Thankyou @Dared00
TStodden: Any bets when the Naomi becomes sentient?
Arikell: Quietly achieves sentience
Raiz0k: "I require more resources"
Snowcookies: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! There's no money in the tarp budget for that.
CaptainSpam: The All-Sega Device.
Splash4Mirrodin: Naomi presents Crazy Taxi
Raiz0k: Oh, so does Rhytm Cafe still exist?
LurkerSpine: @Raiz0k The studio that owns the IP, Autumn Games, is supposedly hiring the people who left Lab Zero to continue development
GapFiller: that really makes it sound like some kind of electronic rhizome
Earthenone: andy is just using his own voice right? :P
Raiz0k: @LurkerSpine : that sounds like "temper tantrum at middle management echelons being damage-controlled by higher-ups actually". Is that an accurate assessment, or am I missing some context?
NotCainNorAbel: i lost it so hard when that happened
GhostValv: that was honestly hilarious
Raiz0k: Oh, that Dice Friends is a must-see then!
RandomTrivia: That was a joy to watch
frnknstn: such great character moment
kusinohki: and then cori just kills the whole thing at the end
mercano82: We've established that Goblin = French.
Jeezy56: I gotta catch up on DF then!
DoodlestheGreat: They finished Dead Space 3.
EvilBadman: They finished the dead space
GhostValv: the nope needs update
TheMerricat: they finished DS3!
Snowcookies: Blame James
Earthenone: pride51
GhostValv: it's something like Maid in Terror or something like that
Raiz0k: Did they finish the DLCs as well?
ConspicuousCompiler: Only thanking the awesome ones? Oh man, mighty selective, aren't we?
PharaohBender27: It was! :p
Raiz0k: Mr. PBender 27, identity withheld.
ConspicuousCompiler: A very specific subset of waterbending.
GhostValv: they skipped the DLC for DS3.
LurkerSpine: @Raiz0k I mean, Mike Z is the owner of Lab Zero who has abused his employees and others. He was supposed to transfer ownership to employees at one point, changed his mind, many key employees left, and I think he's firing people perhaps both out of spite and the fact that he probably doesn't have a company capable of doing any work with all the key losses at the same time.
GhostValv: and the game I think is Maid of Sker...
niccus: cowards still don't use VIIII
serramarkov: You're right, Beej, and I hate it and won't support it.
Ukon_Cairns: ahh, bandit of the fours family
Raiz0k: @ConspicuousCompiler : until you remember "mummy corpse" was a popular cosmetic ingredient for affluents in the XIXth century West....

Dared00: Here's the list of panels including LRR or LRR-friends I made a while ago, it's missing at least one panel that isn't on the schedule yet:
Raiz0k: *things
Snowcookies: !mcrules
LRRbot: 1. Dig up the entire chunk down to bedrock. 2. Dig one layer at a time. 3. Only build tools using resources from within the chunk. 4. No placing blocks besides ladders (with a few exceptions). 5. Keep digging. 6. If you can make a tool that would make mining faster, you have to use it. 7. You only get one bucket. For comprehensive rules go to:
aerohydra: the 3 of them took about a mine oclock time length
aerohydra: so i dont think its getting done
