PixelArtDragon: XS: Xtra slarge
RockPusher: I greatly respect Sony for their Playstation naming scheme
samanthamaybe: Hi chat! happy friday
NullColaShip: Tenbox Series Ten
MolaMolaphant: tenboten series ten
TheMerricat: What I saw on the specs list that popped up, wasn't the only real difference was a step down in graphics cards?
PixelArtDragon: In fairness to the price, the biggest bottleneck in games is graphics, and the biggest bottleneck in graphics is resolution.
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat Not even owns 4k TVs
EvilBadman: even eeveryone&
EvilBadman: not everyone. Dammit, fingers
Raiz0k: @RockPusher : I know, right? Did anyone honestly expect following a monotonic numerical scheme [modulo special editions] would be a cause for admiration about 20 years ago?
gravity_pike: I thought that "Series X" was the name of the next gen of xboxen, but i guess this generation is just called "Series?" 😡
TheMerricat: Tell me about it @EvilBadman I've got one tv and it's from just after the DTV conversion in the US. Mostly though I'm saying that it's realistic to claim that the gameplay should be similar if all the downgrade is , is a step down in graphic cards.
MikeSmith916: 3.8 vs 3.6 Ghz on the same processor is going to feel pretty much the same.

PixelArtDragon: I think because PC needs to interface with a large variety on different hardwares, it has to make some sacrifices it wouldn't need to make if it knows exactly the specs it's running on.
NullColaShip: I guess the following generation will be the Xbox Parallel series
gravity_pike: lower resolution, and also there's that pesky Kryptonite Fog

Beowulf_Bjornson: That was them. It also works across generations
PixelArtDragon: I would love that to be a feature on PC, I have no need for 40gb of textures I will never load.
Beowulf_Bjornson: "Smart Delivery" is the marketing name
TheMerricat: @PixelArtDragon keep your fingers crossed, it is Microsoft and they are still trying to make the 'one platform' thing work.
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon : this is all a matter of managerial shenanigans/cost optimization unfortunately, it pays better to work on the next game than to make global-scope optimizations.
Raiz0k: Keeping fingers crossed for MS is a new concept.....
togashinaruta: They've already shown they are Cake-powered. Who knows what the market cost of that is.
EvilBadman: i think the bigger MS play here is the All Access payment plan
MolaMolaphant: switch is 300 USD most of the time
neacon: so then you are forced to "subscribe" for games, and it kills the used game market, so look at those monthly cost vs the up front cost. but alot of consumers only see the lower prices and understand they are paying more in the long term.
MolaMolaphant: *if you can find one
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k yeah, but it's a new world too. While I'm watching this on my PC, my andriod phone's screen is being mirrored next to the window via their "Link to PC/My Phone Companion" app. They've really gotten into the whole integration thing
PharaohBender27: $400 CAD = $303 USD
7gorobei: sony and ms are partially subsidizing the disc-less models by assuming they will make it back on digital only meaning they wont lose out on the used disc market
Zaraka00: I really feel like the X is made to make the S's price look better
MikeSmith916: $25 a month for the Series S and GamePass+EA Play is an amazing deal.
couldntpickausername: I sell ipads
diamondmx: But you don't really need to make a $300 next-gen console look cheap. That's a real good price.
TehAmelie: i feel Sony put an end to the good times with Playstation 2. remember when consoles didn't get sequels?
PharaohBender27: "It's the XBox 1! No, not that XBox 1"
couldntpickausername: it's hell trying to figure out the models
couldntpickausername: sorry I'm late, I was making my mother supper
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : so what's the difference between that and the software-based Steam Link (honestly asking, have no idea - I've been playing Battletech on a tablet, and party games on an Android TV and they work _mostly_ without problems)?
PharaohBender27: @couldntpickausername No worries :) We just covered the whole XBox S story
diamondmx: I don't see myself getting an XBox this gen because it's all coming out on PC anyways. Which I love, but ... is that good for MS?
SAJewers: they're not doing 5 ps5's? Kappa
Sibwow: dear doctors chillpoint, how do I deal with the predownloaded super mario 3d allstars icon taunting me?
Invitare: Sony did two Playstations? Paul did that years ago
neacon: maybe when everyone is working from home, there is no office chatter, so no "leaks"
7gorobei: mooreslawisdead on yt actually had a ton of accurate leaks on the consoles
EvilBadman: I blame the lack of a centralized event (i.e. E3)
Raiz0k: Honestly, I'm waiting for the inflection point when "it's 2020" stops being a reason/excuse.
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k None, AFIAK? More Secure? Soon there will be a difference, you'll be able to run apps from your phone as separate windows on your PC, sorta like a rootless X Windows setup. But that's still in beta.
PharaohBender27: @Raiz0k January 1, 2021? Kappa
diamondmx: I'm looking forward to the 5 PS5's video from Paul, also still waiting on the 2 PS2s, 1 PS1 (or X PSXes), and of course the truly decadent 64 N64s.
MolaMolaphant: @Raiz0k I'm afraid that inflection point is going to be in 2022

EvilBadman: @Invitare "PS5 Partner showcase, no hardware news" Fans: "RELEASE DATE/PRICE????"
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : I meant, Steam Link can be easily forced to run arbitrary apps remotely since "forever". Re MS, on the one hand, great, more power to the people. On the other.... MS....
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : when the Vogon Fleet comes?
diamondmx: A sad number of people thrive on stirring the shit.
the_lone_bard: Poking hornets nests just to see them buzz lost the novelty sometime around oh I dunno, 2013-2014 when that just became life ><
Invitare: Always assume leaks are fake. They invariably are. Unless it's Laura K Buss
Laurence72: I don't believe that Beej was young!
TehAmelie: i speculated once. it was terrible
Raiz0k: No Beej, you are absolutely right, it just breeds unproductive conflict.
diamondmx: @Invitare True, she's got spies everywhere.
MrUglama: Yea, i dont think Beej has ever been young, he just appeared upon humanity
Raiz0k: To be fair, for Heather, I also enjoy watching it....
PharaohBender27: @Invitare Laura definitely gets legit scoops. And then her pal Jim Sterling just makes predictions that are proven correct about 1-2 years later
LurkerSpine: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 34:36.
Raiz0k: @MrUglama : Ah beihlieve that the proper term is "beejdropped".
the_lone_bard: Where's. My. Elephant!
diamondmx: @PharaohBender27 I think Jim just has darkest timeline prophecy powers.
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k ah, I thought you were asking about the tech behind it, actually the "Your Phone" is way more functional than how you'd do stuff on Steam Link, it's essentially having access to everything on your phone via Windows. I've been enjoying using it to read my manga on a larger screen, but it also passes phone notifications to the Windows 10 notification system, lets you make calls through the phone, etc. I'm actually super impressed how much work they seem to have put into it
Snowcookies: lol
Invitare: PharaohBender27 no, Laura gets factual leaks, Jim is the Cassandra of Video Games
NimrodXIV: :D
NovaTiempo: Beej: Inteseting Man™

PharaohBender27: @diamondmx @Invitare A fair read
iris_of_ether: Beej has it right on the supply chain side
iris_of_ether: imo
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : I was kinda' asking for both, since I haven't used Windows in forever and am a techie :). Most of the stuff is no standard fare on other OS, but the seamless screen share - jealousssssssss.
Raiz0k: *now standar

chaostreader: @tehamelie Yup
TrinexxSlayer: zelda has a split timeline, many games are prequels sequels and also parallel to previous games
diamondmx: Preliminary Injunction
TehAmelie: this is some postredereconstructionism here
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k Fair :-) to be honest, this past month has been my first one on Windows 10, I had fought hard to stick to Win 8.1 prior to my laptop being exploded by lightening, I'm sorta regretting it now, though at least it means I get to benefit from everyone else having stumbled over all the rough spots and found solutions ahead of me.

Raiz0k: Haven't Apple countersued recently?
Laurence72: Funny how not being on a platform is sometimes considered a sign of status ie: console exclusives
Invitare: Two companies with too much money fighting over making more money
TheBorzoi: Epic went against the Apple ToS though. As much as I disagree with a lot of Apple's practices, I'm on the side of Apple here.
Laurence72: ^
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : 8.1 until the last month? I am honestly impressed. At least you now have WSL as a gateway drug ;).
chaostreader: @invitare Kind of? More Apple being kind of confused that someone is arguing with them over an obvious infringement.
LurkerSpine: I hate all the companies involved
PharaohBender27: Right! That guy! What was his name?
Raiz0k: It
the_lone_bard: Epic blatantly wanted to start this fight but also suffer no reprecussions until after a decision had been made and they could decide to back out... I don't think Epic's ever picked a fight before.
mowdownjoe: Jorji! I remember him.
Laurence72: Cobrastan best country!
TehAmelie: i'm fine with Epic being forced to handle their own distribution if Apple isn't good enough for them
chaostreader: @the_lone_bard Oh they have, just with people much smaller than them.
Raiz0k: @the_lone_bard : honestly, I don't believe that's their optimum outcome. They are evidently set up for a protracted battle.
TheBorzoi: "You're updating but not fixing"
MolaMolaphant: @TehAmelie the problem is that there's no alternative distribution to apple devices
Invitare: Eat the rich
PharaohBender27: Jorji! That's who lrrHEATHER was talking about!
Raiz0k: Clip that!
deathrite: Apple is trash, Epic is trash but I guess things could be slightly better if Epic wins in some for and Apple has to lower its cut, less money for Apple is better for everyone too
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k believe me, it was the first thing I beelined to. But then I realized I could play modded Skyrim and now thanks to 16 hour marathon sessions on that, I can't tell if it's daytime or nighttime any more :-P
ReynardWrecca: Good evening Heather and Paul and Beej, good evening chat. Hope we're all well & happy.
ritchards: that's hard to prove
diamondmx: Worth noting that Epic, by removing the 30% apple cut, lowered the price by 20%. So they don't just think apple is being unfair, they also want a bigger slice of the pie.
TehAmelie: oh yeah, those. who knew a de facto monopoly could be bad?
Camail: positional moves
the_lone_bard: RaizOk Oh I get that, what I mean is like, it's like walking into a building during a storm, threatening someone inside and then going "OK while we wait for the cops to get here, I'm gonna wait inside though." like, no... That's not how what you're doing works. Epic's trying to setup for their long protracted legal battle, but also doesn't want to suffer the downsides of a long protracted legal battle.
Decaped: weird little stuff, also known as ridiculously important legal stuff.
LurkerSpine: I don't really mind apple taking in app purchase cuts, what I have a problem with is like, if a purchase isn't made in app, apple is trying to take money from people who make money outside of it
LurkerSpine: E.G. AirBnB (not that airbnb is a good company)
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : can't say anything about Skyrim, but I've been mainlining [sic] Fallout 4 for the better part of the year on Proton and it works just fine :).
deathrite: @diamondmx oh 1000% they're just as greedy, Im sure they'd do the same thing in Apple'
deathrite: s position
GreyKnightEXE: Epic's gamestore takes a cut of purchases. So it seems pretty hypocritical
RandomTrivia: Which of their arses do you think they pulled that statistic from?
the_lone_bard: And that's why Epic has a 0% chance of winning?
Mister_Hush: Put those together and you got a 66 and two thirds percent chance to win the belt
EvilBadman: Epic's store takes a far smaller cut GreyKnightEXE
PharaohBender27: @RandomTrivia Everyone knows 73.4% of all statistics are made up on the spot! Kappa
diamondmx: Hold on, 67% of what is no longer play FN on iOS? Surely 100% of FN iOS players are no longer playing FN on iOS?
Camail: beej's passion is invading heather's frame
thesweattykid: Epic is just shit
Raiz0k: "A small number"™®™®
Amentur: Families are being ripped apart by this change! lrrSLOTH *citation needed*
MrUglama: wait, they are in the same place!?
LurkerSpine: Statistics are like bikinis, interesting for what they reveal, but what they conceal is vital ~ I forget who said that
lirazel64: Some of them maybe switched to Valorant?
Nemo_Rasa: millions of people stop playing fortnite every day, then start again the next day
TheBorzoi: I don't play it myself but I always assumed that those playing on iOS probably already play on another platform and just play it on iOS during work breaks and stuff
Raiz0k: @Amentur : we just had video evidence!
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k hehe I'm one of those folk who like modding games so much that sometimes I forget to actually play the game. My last Bethesda game was Oblivion and I never even made it to K'Tvech or whatever the name of that city that the gates first open in was. But there's a new 'prepackaged' modpack installer called Wabbajack that takes care of downloading all the mods and configuring them, handles all the Gamebyro Bethesda games too so I'll probably be following over to FO4 soon 8-)

diamondmx: @MrUglama No, Beej just breaks spacetime.
RandomTrivia: Also that
MrUglama: yea, i guess he can bend space
EvilBadman: It is *super problematic* that the iphone has only one app store
TheBorzoi: If Epic are losing customers from this, they could stop losing those customers by following the Apple ToS...
ReynardWrecca: @diamondmx If Beej becomes passionate enough about things, his limbs actually appear behind us all.
RandomTrivia: This has all the hallmarks of a case that will simmer on for years
TheBorzoi: Epic's argument is "We lost customers because the app was taken down" but it as taken down because they broke ToS therefore it's their own fault, not Apple's
Decaped: Epic helped get us Crossplay on games. Epic will help us get a better platform on the APple store.
m_logan2000: I agree with Beej. Stats can be good when used responsibly but can be used to manipulate people into believing your untrue arguement while still be true stats
ritchards: I suspect it is more 67% switched, the other 34% didn't (and there is bad rounding there), and they are assuming the other 34% can't play, rather than just aren't playing.
diamondmx: And if he becomes too passionate, he becomes us. #TeamBanana #StopTheBeej.
PharaohBender27: @diamondmx katesLol
Decaped: can someone link that cool stat video that Beej mentioned in Checkpoint?
EvilBadman: He did a training exhibition recently (in the last 12 months), IIRC they coulda worked off that

Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : and that's also a surprising case for Proton, BTW (and I know, I'm sounding like a hardcore neckbeard now) - as long as the modding system is not very particularly Windows-subsystem based, it also works seamlessly (so pretty much all stuff under the banner of "unzip file here").
Fofo57007: they do a lot of "classic
Fofo57007: " players
Decaped: @ritchards thank yoU!
Fofo57007: and put some of the best teams in the history of different clubs
Petaaaaaaaaaaaa: @LurkerSpine Thanks. There goes by joke about having download Kaps from my ISP
TehAmelie: at least i guess Epic has stopped trying to get their customers to "fight" this "battle" to win Epic millions of dollars. that might have worked better if they promised to share. . .
LurkerSpine: I've been whooshed, :D
GamesAndInk: There are companies which still haven't done anything, so that's... something
diamondmx: It is hard to praise people for *finally* doing the right thing after doing the wrong thing for a long time while knowing it was wrong.
EvilBadman: Valve still hasn't made /any/ statement about Black Live Matters. GamesAndInk
NovaTiempo: !oofa
Fofo57007: yea
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I don't mind hearing *nix evangelism, I keep dabbling in it once every five years but with 90% of my non-work related computer use being gaming, I always either just bounced off when the games I wanted to play wouldn't work or it'd linger on a secondary PC doing nothing, I'm really looking at stuff like Proton and wondering if it's time to try again. 8-)
togashinaruta: I do know at least one person that thought the NFL's apology was laughable, and was happy with the statement EA made. Their problem with the NFL is that their apology made it sound like it was out of their control, so it fell flat
Mister_Hush: Yes and that's a problem
ununmik: hi
diamondmx: As corporate apologies go, what I recall from the NFL's one seemed pretty decent.
LurkerSpine: There's always an unnamed team that is interested
Basic_Human_Decency: Hello~
LurkerSpine: If they wanted to sign him, they would have.
togashinaruta: ^ exactly
ununmik: I've just been binging your friday nights series
EvilBadman: I'm still mad at the niners for fucking him over like this (and I'm a niner fan :|)
diamondmx: Oh, have they still not actually given him his job back?
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : great to hear :). IMO if you're playing AAA MP-heavy games - it's not. Otherwise - consult Proton DB for your game collection compatibility.
NovaTiempo: oh no, the fires :((
iris_of_ether: I sure as heck am double-sheltering in place
excalgold: yea sorry about the air quality......we didnt -want- to all catch on fire at once down here! *Oregon Resident*
Baldrash: Yeah, like he's not unofficially black-balled anymore, but no team's done more than lightly kick the tires on signing him to a contract.
Raiz0k: Oh crap.
Zaraka00: In California, havent been outside for more than a few minutes in a couple weeks because of the smoke :(
diamondmx: And none of it is dank nugs. Shame.
Decaped: did Kathleen write that?
PharaohBender27: @LoadingReadyRun No, that's fair, and I'm typing as someone in Portland who had to tape the door to his balcony shut
excalgold: Orange sky in the terrifying
Basic_Human_Decency: it's everythings on fire again season Kappa
ptay313: stop kink-shaming people Heather!
GhostValv: :O
mowdownjoe: Yeah, I wondered if Graham wroted that.
MolaMolaphant: specifically thicc-thighed bandicoots
iris_of_ether: benginLol
MrUglama: kink shaming is not okay hahaha
247Gremlin: I mean, I'll take that. I'll get kicked in the ass by those absolute dumptrucks of thighs.
niccus: hey now, they were bendy sticks
TheKingInGreen: Just because it could be worse doesn't mean it's not bad
excalgold: but a more modern attractive
PharaohBender27 virtually hugs @Zaraka00
RandomTrivia: I don't think Heather is kink-shaming, more just curious about where the idea came from
Raiz0k: "Beej, it's 4PM..."
deathrite: Bandicoot has got the sickness for the thickness
Laurence72: I'm not saying I'm desperate, but.......
diamondmx: What do I need to google to find this? For research purposes.
SquareDotCube: The only person I've heard use the phrase "dump truck ass" is Cam.
ritchards: Crash Bandi-CUTE!
Saunabath: To be fair, the design is very Fortnite-y, but I guess that's just how video game characters are designed now.
TheMerricat: I think Heather knew that Beej wrote it given they are married and probably had lived with his personality far more than we have and just wanted to make a joke :P
NovaTiempo: Oh, a CrikyDile
Raiz0k: ^
iris_of_ether: Heh
TehAmelie: great, i had lived up until now never thinking about Crash porn fanart
ForOhForError: the story was theoretically present
TheMerricat: Gordon Freeman
TehAmelie: that's what's holding Half-Life 3 back
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : "thinking", because you *know* it exists. Let's live in that hell together.
GhostValv: slip slap slop
PharaohBender27: Maybe Crash is a mute?
niccus: it's both more varied and more normal than you think
Laurence72: And Chell from ortal
LordZarano: Everyone is pan in fanfiction
Ignatiuspants: I never actually played the games, but Crash talked constantly in the edgy 90s commercials...
TheMerricat: One story you all didn't manage to get to but was exciting for me was from the Minecraft world where after just 8 months they managed to find the seed for the world that was used to generate the default icon picture for resource packs. It blows my mine that given how much randomness is in the world, they were able to take a 512x512 pixel image and derive enough information from it to be able do that.
excalgold: Because Halo is no longer a launch game?
EvilBadman: It's likely Ubi used a "soft date" to not reveal the release of the console
Gizmoloid: @TheMerricat Oh yeah, seeing them find it so soon was very cool.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : they didn't? I'm 7/10's of certain they did at least mention it.
Faulpyr: I'm kinda weary about Ubisoft, in general, right now...
Saunabath: Is AC going to be exclusive to Xbox?
EvilBadman: No
LurkerSpine: @TheMerricat They definitely did cover that at some point
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I remember them touching on the project on a previous Checkpoint but that was acutally finding the seed for the title screen world, not the resource pack icon.
LurkerSpine: EA Play
PharaohBender27: @Faulpyr Same here
LordZarano: They covered the Minecraft title screen panorama world being found
TheMerricat: The resource pack seed was just found on the 7th, this week.
Beowulf_Bjornson: Game Pass is amazing. Also there is a difference between EA Play and EA Play Pro
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : oh, fair point! That might be it!
Faulpyr: I was excited for Watch Dogs Legion... then The Ubisoft Stuff happened... and also the whole Aiden thing?
LurkerSpine: Both
EvilBadman: the PC Game Pass is jumping from $5 to $10. Game Pass ultimate is Xbox + PC Game Pass for $`14.
LordZarano: But they didn't mention pack.png being found, which was the original goal, and happened just this week
Raiz0k: Aside: can't wait for game pass futures.
PharaohBender27: @Faulpyr Do I even want to know that the "Aiden thing" was? I just know about the IRL stuff with Ubisoft
MolaMolaphant: Madden 1995-2012
NimrodXIV: 99 cents each
mowdownjoe: Wait, PC Game Pass is going up in price? But... I don't have an XBox...
EvilBadman: @PharaohBender27 Aiden's an added charcter in WD:Legion
LurkerSpine: TitanFall 2
RunningMonkeys: that's exactly what came to mind for me too
PharaohBender27: @EvilBadman katesPalm
LurkerSpine: Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Star Wars games
NovaTiempo: I wonder if this will lead to more C7C remasters?
Frankenfruity: dragon age
Faulpyr: They announced the protag of the first game... who's kinda reprehensible... is now a playable character with his own DLC story chapter!
NovaTiempo: *C&C
Ignatiuspants: EA did a Goldeneye remake, I think, after they bought the James Bond rights
deathrite: I feel ya Beej
BusTed: Accurate.
excalgold: Their remake had Craig instead of Brosnan Bond
josh___something: DOGGO!
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 Legions apparently is going to include Aiden in it but I don't know the downsides about it.
iris_of_ether: lrrSPOT
TheAinMAP: lrrSPOT lrrSPOT lrrSPOT
BusTed: Salty sea dog
LurkerSpine: They already had cats
LurkerSpine: They have birds, monkeys, cats, and dogs
SoaringDragon42: oh, well then nevermind!
PharaohBender27: @Faulpyr Yeah, that's very katesPalm - and of course the worst part of it is that's the least bad item of bad news from that company :\
LordZarano: SalC1 on YouTube has the main video about Minecraft pack.png being found
Faulpyr: Haha, right?

MrUglama: from what i have done on that, i understand why someone wouldnt like to go for the vault
LurkerSpine: The vault is kinda hard. You need a full 4 person crew to actually get it all
NovaTiempo: Ah yes. Tvtropes - refused the call :)
LurkerSpine: but I don't know key value, so I don't know if selling it is worth it.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Downside's propbably that Aiden's in it at all - watch the Graham & Paul playthrough of Watch Dogs for the Talking Sim episodes of it, and it'll be clear - Aiden's . . . not a good person
MTGRanger: A lot of ck3 modders had early access
NovaTiempo: Jacob lets play when ? :D
TheMerricat: Paradox games tend to use the same formats for their data files, similar to Bethesda. Usually you just need to fix your references since they do 'hardcode' ID's in their own data files
Raiz0k: Err, I mean, VtM2: Bloodlines *is* a Paradox game... sooo.... promo?
ATrophonian: Mmmmm, I'd try that.
AranMathai: There's a touch of a stink about that right now.
Faulpyr: Yeah, them positioning Aiden as this awesome new thing they're adding kinda reinforces how out of touch the marketing team are with their "diverse development teams".
NovaTiempo: is world of darkness the EVE deveoper one?
diamondmx: C'mon World of Darkness Crusader Kings.
diamondmx: World of Darkness is Vampire the Masquerade, Werewolf, Mage, etc.
Raiz0k: Yeah, their channel is full of trailers for that game, so I assume they do :).
chesul: oh man, I would love to watch that.
diamondmx: EVE owned them for a while but nothing happened.
TheMerricat: There were already WoD mods for CK2 but they were almost all on the 'forbidden' mod site, LoversLab.
NovaTiempo: oh no
iris_of_ether: Mage would be like "well, we blew up Cordoba" ;p
LurkerSpine: I still want to know why that's time limited
TheNerdWonder: There are doggos in CK3 too, I wrote a mod to let you pet them more than once every 5 years
Raiz0k: This is their latest trailer for VtM2 (I think)
demonflowers2: no offence to this guy, but mario battle royale isn't the most original idea
couldntpickausername: honestly, companies are not the bad guy for defending their ip.
couldntpickausername: fanworks are neat but that's part of the risk
RandomTrivia: Or altenatively, when you do get shut down, shred everything so they have to start from scrath
RandomTrivia: *scratch
lirazel64: Hey Beej, you just did the No Fun To Speculate With thing...
Laurence72: Them's Fighting Herds proves you can do original stuff in spirit
NovaTiempo: Marketing!™
Ignatiuspants: How is Them's Fighting Herds doing?
Laurence72: Got a boost from EVO Online, but has simmered down some after EVO Online got canned
LurkerSpine: I'm still surprised Nintendo didn't DMCA flappy bird
m_logan2000: free advertising
ritchards: And now all the other companies will do this...
Laurence72: Also, First DLC character is being released soon
PharaohBender27: Ummmmm
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
LurkerSpine: Y'all need to see Portrait of a Lady on Fire
RandomTrivia: How do you swipe on an oil painting? Do you throw it out one window or the other?
PharaohBender27: @RandomTrivia katesLol
NovaTiempo: 6ft ? why?
NarishmaReborn: i like the ckIII story about eating the pope
PixelArtDragon: This is how Henry VIII got one of his wives
TheNerdWonder: Paradox gets very clever with its game events
Saunabath: I want that to happen with horses in the game
TheNerdWonder: Glitterhoof is best waifu
RandomTrivia: The phrase "warts and all" exists for a reason
Raiz0k: Ad what Heather said: exactly, and they people of the time were *acutely* aware of this.
SajuukSjet: Power of the Image
Raiz0k: *the
PharaohBender27: Fun fact: We've been imagining George Washington wrong, because his face was apparently super smallpox-marked
Frankenfruity: @LurkerSpine absolutely! Phenomenal film
excalgold: she was beautiful because of her mind ?
excalgold: imagine that !
m_logan2000: Napoleon was not actually that short
SquareDotCube: and yet some of those medieval paintings are hilarious
demonflowers2: she was a powerful woman, there fore she must have been hot
lirazel64: Lorenzo Di Medici sent a prospective bride a picture of him and one of his illegitimate daughters.
Raiz0k: Que reference for that one Hochenzollern.

graal_smith: What if the booster box did not contain a legendary creature or planeswalker?
Laurence72: Nuke happy Ghandi was an overflow error that they ran with
RandomTrivia: @LordZarano Supposedly Oliver Cromwell
ritchards: no, they already have their decks build @xantos69
chesul: is it just 3 player?
NovaTiempo: Kathleen Dimir? Excelent :)
EvilBadman: the LRRMTG account has previews on twitter
TehAmelie: i've heard that story
chaostreader: @xantos69 Then they are incredibly unlucky
graal_smith: @chaostreader did you mean me?
Solid_Fuel: YES
NovaTiempo: you could make SUCH a good cape from all that foil
fuzzy_died: you have done that in the past
diamondmx: We'd definitely watch one person crack their pool.
Raiz0k: That's sad.
kirbytronic: Boros War of the Spark
Raiz0k: Both of things.
Laurence72: TTC Crack a Pack episodes prove it works
chaostreader: @graal_smith Yes. Yes I did.
fuzzy_died: It was Amaonket
TheMerricat: @Laurence72 so apparently that was a popular misconception, Sid released a new book recently that mentioned it
ptay313: Note to Paul, next time, film that shit and put it on youtube for us nerds
TheMerricat: whoops Paul beat me to it
NovaTiempo: -1 error?
Laurence72: Hunh. TIL.
excalgold: aww...i liked the overflow better
jamesk902: Sic Pacem Para Bellum, I guess.
TehAmelie: peace through superior firepower, yaay
RockPusher: !yay
LRRbot: Yaaaaaaaay...
RandomTrivia: So it was just a Cold War anaolgy, rather than integer underflow? That's so mundane
Nigouki: someone's uncle at MicroProse was full of shit
TehAmelie: it's pretty interesting the "game" made up that strategy for peace based on the AI they gave it
CrazyZonie: Chat, did they talk about that Mercedes is using the Microsoft Halolens in their US Dealership Repair shops?
togashinaruta: Remember that, next time you make assumptions on how a game is worked, based on external assumptions
MolaMolaphant: VaLRRant is definitely better than DiscLRRd, which I use
TheMerricat: no @CrazyZonie that sounds wack
ShaneLeeAtk: Classic Ian
kusinohki: meant to ask, what's the link for rythem cafe suggestions?
RandomTrivia: Time to let Ian out of the box again
SpoonfullOfSugar: the rithm is gonna get you...
excalgold: Decant another Ian
Ignatiuspants: You have to fight it, or else the ... ah, someone else said it
CrazyZonie: @TheMerricat Nope. Saw it on a CNN article.
TheMerricat: "Rhythm Fighter is a hardcore game that combine 2D Roguelike with rhythm. In this game, you need to follow the beat, fist to meat. At the same time, you need to pay attention to move, roll, batter, etc. You need to face strong opponent and show your courage, create your signature move."
