TehAmelie: well, "the forbidden protagonist" sounds like Goku to me. could it be you're actually watching Dragonball?
Metric_Furlong: no, it couldn't
TehAmelie: rats
TehAmelie: you'll agree he is totally a forbidden protagonist though?
Metric_Furlong: possibly, but probably not in this sense
TehAmelie: i followed the DBZ manga religiously when it was published here, i think Son-Goku spends 80% of it not being there for the big fight
Metric_Furlong: got to try and build tension somehow
TehAmelie: in that vein, i do love the One Punch Man fighting game that is not about beating up the opponent but summoning Saitama
TehAmelie: not enough to like, play it. but i do love it
TehAmelie: just acknowledge that your protagonist is literally invincible and lean into it
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Oh boy, it's more elsinore today! I do hope that my favourite character, Laertes, survives and has nothing bad happen to them
TehAmelie: oh man, i loved that game. and i did absolutely none of the reading about Hamlet i was gonna to prepare for this stream
Metric_Furlong: reposting the poll link, for anyone who missed it the first time https://www.survey-maker.com/poll3152135x717343b8-97
TehAmelie: actually learned more about what the play is about in the last stream than i did in 39 years of living in post-Shakespeare society
CanPlayGames: !NEXT
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a deeper look at the world of video games. Game: Elsinore) at Tue 01:30 PM PDT (1m from now).
richard_ermen: Ohh, is it going to be time for more faux-shakespearean amusement? I'm giddy with delight ^^
Metric_Furlong: it'll be quite the Shakesperience
TehAmelie: you'd think pop culture osmosis was more effective with the guy who invented half of the current English language
Metric_Furlong: I find that seeing the play explains the play
richard_ermen: "Reading the card explains the card"?
TehAmelie: hmm good idea. there is apparently a movie with Crowley in it
richard_ermen: I don't agree,considering some of his plays xD
TehAmelie: or, is it a movie or a recording of the play? well, potato, tomato
IviaRelle: I meant to rewatch the Reduced Shakespeare before this stream, drat. It's a slightly parodic adaptation of all Shakespeare's plays and sonnets in an hour and a half, the entire back half being devoted to Hamlet.
TehAmelie: that sounds like Hamlet
TheAinMAP: lrrSIGNAL katesAir lrrSIGNAL

SuneEnough: both @TehAmelie
Invitare: can this book even be called Hamlet is Hamlet is dead?
SuneEnough: Elsinore Castle is the castle in Elsinore

Metric_Furlong: how are Rosencrantz and Guildenstern?
TehAmelie: they are dead. even if they are alive
Metric_Furlong: dinger
Metric_Furlong: it's like now you see them now you don't with those two
RandomTrivia: Imagine being Banardo and seeing you walk into the room and stand absolutely still for 2 hours
TehAmelie: i named two side characters in a story in that book i was just yakkin about Rosencranz and Guildenstern, as a joke, and i'm kind of frightened of what they do to the story
RandomTrivia: """entirely unexpected"""
ieva_art: hellooo
Nigouki: The Queen's death was entirely unexpected, but we all knew Hamlet was gonna bite it
xantos69: Yes, her life became lost somehow.
RandomTrivia: Well, where did she last see her life?
niccus: her life was lost in a hamlet-involved incident
ContingentCat: A life was misplaced
TehAmelie: her life was interfered with
kdefinition: She just happened to aquire 34 stab wounds during an unrelated argument with the prince
Metric_Furlong: at what point do the hyenas show-up?
ContingentCat: In other news Pizza day is friday
Lordofironstorm: Just got here. Is this a Visual Novel of Hamelt?
Juliamon: Lordofironstorm With added Groundhog Day
TehAmelie: who are the hyenas in The Lion King actually? given that everyone compares it with Hamlet
BogglesUrMind: Hmm... this game certainly is a strange brew, isn't it?
Lordofironstorm: Danish People no Naku Koro Ni
TehAmelie: i'd guess the sword is modeled as part of his legs
Metric_Furlong: so, which part of this game do we start comparing to a Japanese wizard civil war?
BogglesUrMind: Dang, Hamlet sounds like he totally blows.
Metric_Furlong: (yes, I am doing a bit where I'm bringing-up different things that reference/are compared to hamlet)
ContingentCat: he is a like 13 year old rich boy so yeah he blows
TehAmelie: Hamlet is what the kids call "a lot"
ContingentCat: or am I remembering Hamlet's age totally wrong?
elah806: Um
TehAmelie: i wonder what kind of king he would have made
niccus: uhhhhhh
Orgmastron: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a Hideo Kojima production.
iris_of_ether: UMM
ContingentCat: um?
elah806: ContigentCat "Hamlet" here refers to Hamlet the title character's dad, they have the same name
goatprince: you are sitting, not lying down...?
elah806: NO
Lordofironstorm: WE NEED AN ADULT
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Yas queen
TehAmelie: he sure acts like he's 12, so, probably the age of majority for the period
asthanius: "Embrace" is a bit far. But sit...
niccus: where's the option to panic
ContingentCat: @elah806 oh right, whoops
goatprince: ophelia was the original kombucha girl
ContingentCat: close your eyes and think of Denmark?
RandomTrivia: What's the worst that could happen?
asthanius: NO
TehAmelie: the idea of "minors" only came up in the Victorian period, as i understand history
ContingentCat: uhh
Juliamon: I think we made a terrible mistake
niccus: go the fuck to sleep
iris_of_ether: lrrCORI benginLol

RandomTrivia: Raiz0k It was completed during Kathleen's bonus stream

Lordofironstorm: So who's the main character of this game?
iris_of_ether: DoritosChip DoritosChip DoritosChip
Metric_Furlong: Lordofironstorm Opehlia
TehAmelie: Ophelia is the player character, but who knows
Lordofironstorm: I wasn't sure if it was always Ophelia or if you could switch persepctives
asthanius: Then the King must die *shrug*
TehAmelie: the main character is the one whose perspective informs the way we see story, so i guess Ophelia. the protagonist is the one whose actions most directly cause the story, which i guess is Claudius
Raincoast_Bear: Perhaps Rosencrantz and Guildenstern can help?
Raiz0k: @BogglesUrMind : I see what you did there :D. And, for added fun, isn't Hamlet set at around the time of a temperature maximum for Medieval Europe xD?
niccus: other ways to see a lot of hamlet: be an actor and rehearse the play
Raiz0k: Thanks for the info RandomTrivia and ContingentCat .
Raiz0k: Also, is anyone else getting slightly garbled voice?
TehAmelie: and the hero is the one whose sacrifice makes the story satisfying. i don't know who that would be
Raiz0k: *chuckles*
racoonius: hello chat and hello Cameron 👋
BirkaBirkowski: is this the sequel to Runescape?
Raincoast_Bear: Just don't go to England with R&G....
goatprince: a shack is a type of locker, yes
Lordofironstorm: But aren't Rosencrantz and Guildenstern already Dead?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I like to think Laertes's 'trip' is spent frolicking in a field nearby quite mad.
Nigouki: smells like plague
Raiz0k: Certainly an interesting way to force a door....
niccus: how was this boarded up from the inside
TehAmelie: they're always dead. dead is the one thing you can count on them being
Metric_Furlong: niccus wizard did it
TehAmelie: kind of a universal constant of Shakespeareverse
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: R&G's deaths are a fixed point in time
TehAmelie: if our world = c, the works of Shakespeare = Rosencranz and Guildenstern are dead
Raiz0k: If it's limited by c, then in most of the observable universe R&G are still possibly alive.
ContingentCat: the extended Shakespeare universe
TehAmelie: mm-hmm
RandomTrivia: Trapped in time? Wait, is Ophelia aware that she's in a Groundhog Day loop?
TehAmelie: the possibility of their being alive is like all the things that light does besides having a constant
Raiz0k: Oh great, now we're playing a Nurgle cultist simulator?
Metric_Furlong: topical!
Raiz0k: Didn't want to mention that, but yeah....
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: It's fine, we'll die and wake up without the plague

Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : does it manage to hit proton decay?
TehAmelie: yeah, it has some theories
Raiz0k: Nice.
TehAmelie: i'm jealous you can just throw that survey out there. i link to my book, it sounds like advertising. just cause it's 18 years of work
JaymicUnyielding: Oh whoops, I totally forgot which day Let's Nope is on.
TehAmelie: well you're here now, and there's no getting out lrrBEEJ
Raiz0k: Fortunately, we also have lot's of deaths here.

wildpeaks: take care JaymicUnyielding
Raiz0k: Have fun!
JaymicUnyielding: Thanks! This seems like a super cool game, please enjoy it!
TehAmelie: i'm cuing up what youtube has to offer in the ways of Hamlet performances. is there any i should watch above all else?
TehAmelie: i mean i'm not gonna spend 2-4 hours watching one and then another one
corianderd: I the david tennent 2009 hamlet is interesting. They tried to make it look staged and all dramatic with the lighting
TehAmelie: cool cool
wildpeaks: Stratford Festival had their great version for a month in JUly, but sadly I don't think it's online anymore
Metric_Furlong: I haven't seen enough recorded/filmed performances of it to judge, sorry
corianderd: the big advantage the 2009 one has it Pat Stew as Claudius tho. He's just great
Metric_Furlong: this is true
wildpeaks: I mean, it's still online, but it's no longer free on youtube, it's on their on-demand site now: https://www.stratfordfestival.ca/WatchandExplore/OnDemand/Production/Hamlet But I can attest it was a good version
corianderd: I do also like the spectacle of the Brannaugh one
TehAmelie: it doesn't look like you can watch it without paying money. oh well. i'm a rich and famous author in LRR chat now
wildpeaks: welcome back
Raiz0k: heeelloo
ContingentCat: hello
Raiz0k: No, you're both live.
xantos69: cheer50 Welcome back Cam!
goatprince: I waited until Cam returned to deliver this one: Heat Death 12: Heat Dearth
Raiz0k: Took me a moment, but oh my gods....
RobotInProgress: Bone?! BONE?!!?!
wildpeaks: maybe even the queen
Metric_Furlong: the bone zone?
TehAmelie: i'm so pumped Rosencranz and Guildenstern are ladies in this version. we should do more of that
TehAmelie: ask not "could this character be a woman" but ask "does this character have to be a man"
RandomTrivia: That definitely sounds like a metaphor for something
RandomTrivia: "gone up the forest path"
Sarah_Serinde: TehAmelie I never got out to see them, but in the past couple years the Stratford Festival in Ontario did a bunch of Shakespeare plays with women as the main characters and it was great to see
TehAmelie: sweet
PokerNutz: Out of curiosity, who else in chat has played and/or finished this?
wildpeaks: Sarah_Serinde I hope you get a chance to get there, I used to go every year, great troop
Raiz0k: The question is not always easy to answer, but in the case "it's a theatre play that has [almost] no concrete basis in any historical events and has been there for ages, re-imagined in all and any possible way", it is.
TehAmelie: we do have about 6000 years of stories mostly about men to rethink
wildpeaks: The Tempest and Corianus especially were great
Sarah_Serinde: wildpeaks For I while I was going most summers, especially when I had the big discount for being under 30. Now that I don't have that and I'm not living with my mom (who I'd usually go with and get a ride from) I haven't gotten out to them as much
Raiz0k: That, and we can also make new stories.
TehAmelie: oh yes
wildpeaks: oh dear
jessieimproved: I like the intentional pause before the word "suffer" in the text, you could hear him say it
Sarah_Serinde: I went to several Shakespeare plays and I got to see Pirates of Penzance and that was fun
wildpeaks: ohh neat
jessieimproved: I got to see Hamlet done very well at Oglethorpe College here in Atlanta, one of the art teachers made some serious props
Lordofironstorm: Come on, Quince! It's like you've never even READ Hamlet!
goatprince: Quince seems like the hint repository, rather than an actual player in the narrative.
Sarah_Serinde: Ooh Tempest by the ocean sounds great
Metric_Furlong: yeah, sounds like it'd be a blast
ContingentCat: oh yeah whatsherface
RandomTrivia: Zoe Wanamaker?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I went and saw a version of tempest that was redone as a sci-fi. It was... interesting.
oyleslyck: Vanessa Redgrave?
Sarah_Serinde: I remember Tempest being one of the ones that Stratford Ontario did with a female lead in recent years, along with several others
Sarah_Serinde: And I think it wasn't just a one-year thing either
RandomTrivia: Just based on you saying the HP flight instructor...
ContingentCat: gesundheit?
RandomTrivia: Redgrave I would also believe
wildpeaks: Martha Henry ?
ContingentCat: oh course he does, the edgelord
oyleslyck: Harriet Walter?
Raiz0k: Those must have been expensive as hell.
Metric_Furlong: NarwhalsInATrenchcoat isn't that basically Forbidden Planet?
wildpeaks: there are probably several
elah806: Very Teenage Edgelord
Sarah_Serinde: I've never read or seen that one and I'm pretty sure I'm fine with that
Raiz0k: Essentially the OG one. Werter's got nothing on him.
Nigouki: people didn't know there was a splash zone?
wildpeaks: oh that must be rad
Raiz0k: (although Werther is more like the OG emo)
elah806: A lot of Shakespeare companies have bent over backwards trying to make Titus Andronicus remotely tenable for middle-aged white audiences who want to think they're cultured and virtuous
TehAmelie: i remember being shocked by The Elephant Man where the guy got naked on stage. it gets a bit more real than movies and stuff
BrowneePoints: *was a Theatre Major* *looks at contemporary Theatre Culture* LAGUHS
elah806: Lots of very imagistic dream ballet euphemistic depicitions of violence
wildpeaks: delicious fish
Raiz0k: Damnit, now I'm hungry.
Raiz0k: Vienna Newtown, BTW :p.
ContingentCat: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That's not how you wear that.
BrowneePoints: I mean, the best part of Shakespeare is we consider him this lofty playright, when his works were written for the common folk, and a bunch of the words he "invented" were common slang from working women /shrug
goatprince: cam, weaknesses: the name 'weiner', funny bone, carbonated beverages (burps)
SquareDotCube: Is that where they keep the weenie wagons?
RandomTrivia: Quickly, to the dark corner!
wildpeaks: that's not going to get awkward at all
PokerNutz: Ophelia, best ninja
wildpeaks: Stealth 100
ContingentCat: don't be suspicious. don't be suspicious...
BrowneePoints: Brit be acting pretty sus
ContingentCat: !sus
azureHaights: @BrowneePoints It can't be Brit. We literally JUST saw Ophelia vent
Raiz0k: @BrowneePoints : I always thought that view is only prevalent in people that haven't been paying attention in the relevant literature/language class, and what you say is like the first "meta" thing students learn otherwise, but now I'm not so sure.
BrowneePoints: @azureHaights I was memeing
azureHaights: As was I
TehAmelie: Neil Gaiman talks a good rant about how scholars invent Shakespeare being a secret noble and stuff just because the idea of a mere commoner accomplishing things contradicts their philosophies
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie Yep! Most Writers/History buffs hate the "Secret Noble" bullshit because it detracts from a commoner busting his ass to be a timeless writer
Raiz0k: But do contemporary (to us) scholars do that as well?
wildpeaks: woopsie daisy
niccus: time to die
SquareDotCube: !y
empyreon: LUL
RandomTrivia: Welp. Time for a mulligan
Foxmar320: foxmarWELP
niccus: exit stage window
BrowneePoints: @Raiz0k I meant more Contemporary Theatre Culture as in those that go to see theatre. They treat it as a lofty pasttime, when it was always for the common folk

Foxmar320: Alahmnat thanks!
Raiz0k: @BrowneePoints : that's interesting, over here the vast majority of plays in "normal" theatres (so not the big explicitly "classic" ones) is decidedly more modern, or at least offers modern reinterpretations (and the latter also applies for the "classic").
wildpeaks: our dress has fire resistance +10
ContingentCat: !findquote fire
LRRbot: Quote #7157: "You are not... currently... on fire... I don't think." —Dale [2020-08-24]
Raiz0k: So it's not also a stealth insult, it's also a meme?
gredgredmansson: Headcanon: Lady Brit is Thursday Next
Raiz0k: Cue laugh track.
RandomTrivia: @gredgredmansson Expand?
gredgredmansson: Thursday Next is a series of novels involving a detective solving crimes within fiction; making sure the stories act out the way they are supposed to
TehAmelie: cloister life was an ever present option for people with nothing to lose at least in the early middle ages i believe
RandomTrivia: @gredgredmansson Yes, I know the series and love it. I meant specifically?
RandomTrivia: Oh gotcha
gredgredmansson: @RandomTrivia just as this is a character that didn't appear in the original play
TehAmelie: i guess the Americas never got into that
RandomTrivia: You think Brit is going to force us to obey the plot
RandomTrivia: That's interesting
gredgredmansson: idk
DoodlestheGreat: I'm not here to make friends, I'm here to make cookies!
wildpeaks: it's like telling a cat "don't you dare push this coffee cup off the table"
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : America has the equivalent "homesteading" thing, 'though?
Nigouki: do we still do the groundhog day thing if someone OTHER than the shadowy figure stabs us?
gredgredmansson: @RandomTrivia well, there was that time Thursday messed up the ending to Jane Eyre
TehAmelie: don't think i know what that is
RandomTrivia: @gredgredmansson Well, messed up or fixed is the contentious point anyway
gredgredmansson: indeed
Orgmastron: Bernardo looks good in a dress
Raiz0k: I meant the idealized concept of settlers striking out on their own, isolated from civilization.
goatprince: Bernardo's got a RUMP, dangggg boiii
wildpeaks: LUL
RandomTrivia: Although there was the small matter of the demon trying to kill her
iris_of_ether: Cameron.
wildpeaks: now kiss
gredgredmansson: i should really read those again
niccus: wow rude
niccus: dont interrupt the play
wildpeaks: Ophelia nooo
Raiz0k: Speaking of actual Shakespearean theathre....
TehAmelie: ah, i guess it satisfies the idea of getting away from everything. though in kind of the opposite way. total freedom instead of total surrender
Raiz0k: Yeah, pretty much, I agree :).
RobotInProgress: Milky Thighs
gredgredmansson: cmon claudius, did you have to be MORE of a dingus
Orgmastron: Bernardo is a trans woman. I don't make the rules that's just how it is.
TehAmelie: i can buy it
gredgredmansson: oh, genderfluid
Orgmastron: GenderFluidPride GenderFluidPride GenderFluidPride
Sarah_Serinde: TransgenderPride GenderFluidPride
gredgredmansson: Othello?
gredgredmansson: I think you are in the wrong play buddy
TehAmelie: when does Hamlet take place exactly? i guess Catholicism is very influential at any rate
Raiz0k: Denmark.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: GenderFluidPride . Wait, which of the pride month emotes is the genderfluid one? This 'un? PrideShrug
Raiz0k: Oh, "when".
wildpeaks: some of the people you talk to do react well and supportive
Raiz0k: Around XIII-XIV IIRC?
wildpeaks: (but I don't recall which ones)
TehAmelie: almost contemporary to Shakespeare eh
gredgredmansson: yeah the play itself was written around 1600 and first performed in 1603
gredgredmansson: so it's a period piece
Raiz0k: OK, sorry, I confused that with the time of the original legend.
TehAmelie: what did the English in 1600 think of Denmark in the 1550s? strange thought

TehAmelie: it is
gredgredmansson: cool, I'll have to check it out later
wildpeaks: I hope we'll keep playing this
TehAmelie: it is a rad game and our hosts are double rad lrrDARK
silenceaux: Gertrude What
ContingentCat: um
wildpeaks: all is well
Raiz0k: Well well well.
wildpeaks: I do like friend-Brit, she grows on you
TehAmelie: i can't help but think Lady Brit is some kind of Britain-insertion fantasy
PokerNutz: @wildpeaks at least she's not trying to **** us like in Chapter 1.
wildpeaks: true :D
gredgredmansson: oh
TehAmelie: actually i have one, certainly stupid question about Hamlet: why Denmark?
gredgredmansson: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dames
Invitare: lecturn?
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie: Lady Imperia Excellentio Glorios Britway?
wildpeaks: *gasp*
TehAmelie: out of the literally thousands of kingdoms in historical europe, or an infinite number of kingdoms one could just make up

TehAmelie: ah it is Cctober, or as the internet likes to call it, Halloween. my local grocery store has been selling christmas drinks and snacks for the last two weeks
wildpeaks: being dramatic
wildpeaks: this boi needs a hot cup of tea
gredgredmansson: So that is what that speech sounds like in modern language
Raiz0k: It's interesting BTW that Irma's archetype (woman with an overtly servile role that holds swaths of de facto power) shows up in *many* cultures.
ContingentCat: lrrHORN ?
gredgredmansson: ophelia please get out of the table
RandomTrivia: Like you haven't been waiting for this moment the whole time
TehAmelie: hey, it's the central plot of Trees book 3 that i jsut read
KV1NN4: well you're acting a bit like a child right now Hammy
wildpeaks: m'other *tips inkwell*
RandomTrivia: And there I thought this would be a classic Agatha Christie "work through the people to find the culprit"
TehAmelie: fun fact: anything written by Warren Ellis now feels cheap and gross to read
e_bloc: Corgo205 Claudius is sus
wildpeaks: there are many more layers than just this mystery
TehAmelie: man Hamlet would be such a harsh traitor game
niccus: like a chump
ContingentCat: Wow rude
PokerNutz: @wildpeaks Have you played this before?
wildpeaks: RIP
gredgredmansson: BAD END
RandomTrivia: That went well
Nigouki: the stabbings will continue until morale improves
wildpeaks: yes PokerNutz it's great
gredgredmansson: and barely anyone died
PokerNutz: @wildpeaks Glad they made the *change*

TehAmelie: and yet, Rosencranz and Guildenstern are dead. somehow. that's just how it be
gredgredmansson: yes, that IS unlikely
MeJustinYouChat: wait is this 5d hamlet with timetravel?
ContingentCat: yup
gredgredmansson: Ophelia is timelooping
Raiz0k: 4d, let's not get carried away.
MeJustinYouChat: It boggles the mind
MeJustinYouChat: Oh so only 1 reality no branching?
MeJustinYouChat: Oh that's fine then
TehAmelie: i tried to watch Rosencranz and Guildenstern are Dead the other day, but i had to stop. never had that happen since The Holy Mountain
gredgredmansson: so, I joined in late, what changed so that Hamlet dueled Claudius directly instead of Laertes
Raiz0k: 1 reality with takies-backsies.
gredgredmansson: oh duh, Polonius probably didn't die
ContingentCat: not yet nope
Orgmastron: We told Hamlet everything
MeJustinYouChat: I need to see this from the start. To the VODs
MeJustinYouChat: Enjoy the stream everyone
TehAmelie: kind of funny, i'm presently rewatching the talking sim of Life is Strange. take-backsies sure are nice
gredgredmansson: define "everything" @Orgmastron
Orgmastron: That his mother was unfaithful and that Claudius killed his father
wildpeaks: merely being able to pause during a conversation, even without time travel power,would be so useful irl
TehAmelie: heck yeah
gredgredmansson: @Orgmastron I see. Confirming his suspicions would make him less crazy-paranoid
Mysticman89: text based conversing is mucyh better than in-person in part because of the minipauses that occur in between messages
gredgredmansson: @wildpeaks so if real life was a web forum, where you can carefully craft a response
TehAmelie: i've been told of a guy with Autism who required exactly 8 seconds to process anything that was told to him and reply. would be nice to just be able to have that figure to tell people
wildpeaks: pretty much :D I think that's part of why I prefer written chat to audio
wildpeaks: it's acceptable to take a at least a few seconds to reply
gredgredmansson: never heard that argument for "subs vs dubs" before
gredgredmansson: it's interesting
Raiz0k: I don't think one needs to be on the autism spectrum to appreciate that possibility.
wildpeaks: at least one rtick in some conversation is that I tell people I need to take notes, so it lets me slow down the speed of conversation, but that's only appropriate for some types of conversation
wildpeaks: can't do that when ahving a beer with friends, for example
TehAmelie: "if you wanna have a thoughtful conversation, just give me a minute. literally."
wildpeaks: exactly
Raiz0k: @gredgredmansson : subs (not talking about JP media, in general) have both the advantage that you can pause and read (if you require processing it longer for any reason) *and* you get duplicated stimuli from two "channels" (audio and text).
gredgredmansson: @Raiz0k neat
wildpeaks: good point Raiz0k
gredgredmansson: You know, that actually makes the "the voices sound better in JP than EN" argument make more sense, your brain is already telling you what they are saying, so you are hearing the tone with the words together
gredgredmansson: I never really got that before
TehAmelie: to be fair, voice acting is a very highly respected profession in japan
gredgredmansson: so I've heard
ky0dar: hey chat. is polonius dead yet?
gredgredmansson: No, but Hamlet is
TehAmelie: i think he just killed Hamlet
ky0dar: that feels like a twisy
gredgredmansson: Claudius killed Hamlet
wildpeaks: he met the end of a pointy sword
TehAmelie: ah
gredgredmansson: Hamlet confronted Claudius directly instead of dueling Laeres
gredgredmansson: the queen is not taking it well
ky0dar: sounds like claudius is living his best life?
gredgredmansson: yeah sounds like
TehAmelie: did we restart time? what prompts that by the way? i know, i'm very inattentive
Nigouki: so why is Hamlet so bad at stabbing? we've seen him get owned by both of his parents in a knife fight
ky0dar: 5
PokerNutz: @TehAmelie We can just choose to
gredgredmansson: now I really need to see the vods for the Gertrude fight
TehAmelie: aha
Kerrisis: !uptime

Mister_Hush: Hammy's a thinky boi

Gulleko: completely unintentional, but I love it eogHee
wildpeaks: such a cheerful place
Raiz0k: In the graveyard? How efficient!
PokerNutz: Ah this scene.
gredgredmansson: look, that whole thing with Lady Brit...
TehAmelie: i wonder sometimes. Hamnet Shakespeare died very young, 11 or 12. could he have had time to be a drama queen?
Raiz0k: Irma, stop helping.
empyreon: 360 moonwalk right on out
gredgredmansson: "I am the king, I can do whatever I want" -Lion Claudius
ky0dar: is this game going to end with ophelia killing herself to stop everyone dying???
wildpeaks: "I killed your son, why did you run from me" well sheesh Claudius, I wonder why
Raiz0k: Ooooh, 12 is well enough to be edgy.
gredgredmansson: @ky0dar that didn't work in canon, doubt that will work now
ContingentCat: just do a grampa simpson and turn right around

ky0dar: wellll
wildpeaks: The Ghost Knows gogcomSpoopy
RandomTrivia: Uh oh
xantos69: That's a full party wipe
silenceaux: The Ghost has made itself known
Orgmastron: Mmmmm whatcha say
gredgredmansson: "you've met with a terrible fate, haven't you"
ky0dar: so that explains why noone has a danish name in this "denmark"
gredgredmansson: seriously, look at that face
RandomTrivia: Oh no, Quince knows about our power to respawn!
wildpeaks: we've been eaten by a ghostly grue
ky0dar: weve been infected with the logos!
wildpeaks: the plot thickens
TehAmelie: did you see that run animation? it was awesome
gredgredmansson: who are you, quince
wildpeaks: good question indeed
Nigouki: tender hearted from all the knives in him :(
TehAmelie: he ran out of the room in one step
PokerNutz: @gredgredmansson A very good question
ContingentCat: as i his heart has been tenderized
Invitare: you DID miss Quince though
ky0dar: can someone just give hamlet a copy of black parade? its not pertinent to the game, im just asking.
wildpeaks: to be fair, Hamlet also missed Quince
gredgredmansson: spoilers
TehAmelie: haha can you imagine how hard it would blow the mind of anyone circle 1600 AD? just show the the Black Parade video and the'll probably burn themselves for witches
wildpeaks: must be the bad lighting in the castle

Mysticman89: what kind of monster kills their kicksttarters
wildpeaks: "no dev was harmed in the making on this game"
ky0dar: i maintain that ophelia is made of memetic polyalloy.
gredgredmansson: you sure did
wildpeaks: gogcomSpoopy
ky0dar: its why everyone gets stabbed.
TehAmelie: the first thing that happens in this play is that we find out ghosts are real. come to think of it, i wonder why people take death so hard
RandomTrivia: The ghost is also Bill Murray?

wildpeaks: our mother ?

Nigouki: Simona?
GamesAndInk: Tragedy usually involves people trying to avoid tragedy.
Nigouki: has he been hanging out with her ghost?
silenceaux: A sort of dread regarding the inevitable
Raiz0k: Er, a very major part of tragedy is people "walking themselves" into it. Otherwise the Book of Job would a "tragedy".
Raiz0k: *be a
gredgredmansson: "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when YOU fall into an open manhole and die." -Mel Brooks
Raiz0k: Exactly, not "someone cuts" ;).
gredgredmansson: yeah yeah, you told me this already
Laserbeaks_Fury: I say we take this loop off
Laserbeaks_Fury: Let's go galfing
Laserbeaks_Fury: *golfing
ContingentCat: an we just take matters into our own hands and stab him?
Raiz0k: I mean, he literally had his back turned just now.
niccus: speedrun wreck your father
RandomTrivia: Aaaaand he's set fire to the notes
ContingentCat: just push him in the fire
empyreon: I demand a Shank option!
wildpeaks: too bad we can't just boop him on the head
gredgredmansson: methinks we need to avoid mentioning it to him altogehter
GamesAndInk: I think the king said you should watch him when he thinks he's alone--can you hide in his room somewhere?
Raiz0k: Oh hey, there's a dagger right there!
WonderfulGlory: This is like Paranormal Activity: Shakespeare
asthanius: Can you extinguish the flames?
Raiz0k: Oh the game is being such a tease now.
ZareZareThinks: try telling him you believe hes in danger
Raiz0k: Seriously 'though, have we tried bringing someone with us?
ZareZareThinks: before he burns the stuff
LordZarano: Imagine if the time where she didn't loop was the one where she killed her father
ZareZareThinks: i remember he gives you the key to his chest when you do from a previous stream
Dish_KP: Hamlet, the Movie, the Game?
gredgredmansson: oh
Sogheim: Ophelia is having such a hard time being believed by all these men in her life. I feel bad.

Raiz0k: "Turning", present tense ;)?
senshisun: ShowLove100 I forgot about this game! Going to watch the whole thing on the VOD later.
spiltdownman: have we tried hard pivoting the world into comedy to avoid the tragedy? try dressing up as someone you have the hots for and then get into high-jinks with their retainers.
ContingentCat: hmmm
gredgredmansson: when did he die in canon?
senshisun: Hmm... that sounds like a good idea
Raiz0k: Someone in chat called it, didn't they?
ContingentCat: yeah replace all their knives with retractable joke knives
Laserbeaks_Fury: What happens if you tell Hamlet hes going to kill your dad?
shurtal: I tuned back in, and for a second I thought this was Runescape
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I think this is a heavily flawed victory

Mysticman89: cast the old man into the flames
ky0dar: he cant sleep. his heads on fire.

wildpeaks: yeah that wouldn't be fun
Raiz0k: Yeah, the modernized lines are not that jarring.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I'd swear there is a term for that
Raiz0k: For what?
Sogheim: “You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him in the original Klingon."

Laserbeaks_Fury: For using a modern equivalent to relate something vs being period accurate'
Darleysam: Silent Hill 3 according to the schedule

Laserbeaks_Fury: Whos the protag?
ky0dar: well, that sounds fun
wildpeaks: I wonder what ending they'll get in the intro

TehAmelie: my first encounter with videogame music that's just rock, rather than electronica
ky0dar: theme of laura is still an utter classic.
TehAmelie: what's that?
ky0dar: its one of the themes from SH2
TehAmelie: Terra's theme from FF6 is my favorite song in the world, but in "music that doesn't sound like videogame music", i submit The Best is Yet to Come from MGS4 and Dead Man's Gun from RDR
TehAmelie: thanks
ky0dar: i love The Synapse from Deus Ex 1
SquareDotCube: Oh hey, just their luck, Silent Hill 4 got ported to PC over on GOG
ky0dar: also, the Marsvision songs from Surviving Mars are all pretty solid.
TehAmelie: wasn't that when the series started to get bad?
ky0dar: Silent Hill 4 is a side game that ended up getting the big branding.
TehAmelie: curious
ky0dar: its being different, but its still a Team Silent game.
ky0dar: after that you get people trying to do Silent Hill that, i think are uniformly westerners?
TehAmelie: huh
ky0dar: I liked Shattered Memories on the Wii. That had some interesting design choices. I heard Sam Barlow worked on that one.
TehAmelie: was the lead dev on the earlier ones someone named Akira or am i making stuff up?
ky0dar: akira yamaoka did the score?\
TehAmelie: ah yes, the musician
ky0dar: wikipedia shows no other akiras in Team Silent
TehAmelie: many years ago i theorized the optimal name to achieve any worldly success would be Akira American Creed. haven't seen any evidence to suggest otherwise
ky0dar: i... see.
SquareDotCube: Maybe in the 80s Kappa
TehAmelie: hey, i bet it would work even better today. it's gender neutral and all
ky0dar: youre not wrong
TehAmelie: we'd just need someone crazy enough to actually take the name upon themselves
TehAmelie: the logic is, have you ever heard of anyone non-famous named Akira? etc.
TehAmelie: don't think too hard about why you would hear about someone who wasn't famous
ky0dar: i as a pasty white boi from australia can confirm, i do not know any akiras personally.
ky0dar: and thus all the akiras i know of are famous.
ky0dar: QED
TehAmelie: QUD to the max
