LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (2m from now).
GapFiller: cant help but feel rolling straight into the hilarious post credit outtakes takes something away from that stinger punchline
BrookJustBones: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (1m from now).
PharaohBender27: So turns out one of this week's Checkpoint stories has hit me hard today - Kate's nuking all of her clips as I type. I've saved most of the ones I made myself, but a few now only exist in her download. :\
TheMerricat: Twitch management is stupid sometimes --------- a lot of the time
GapFiller: given it was mostly his work yr wonder how Sonny Bono wd feel abt DMCA now 20~30 yrs later had he not skied into that tree
beowuuf: :( oof, know she got it - like most people did it seems - didn't realise she was acting on it :(
TheMerricat: Thing is @GapFiller none of the issues most people have these days with 'DMCA' are actually DMCA problems but companies deciding they don't want to deal with 'DMCA problems' and going well past where they actually needed to

ContingentCat: * lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
beowuuf: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
PharaohBender27: lrrSIGNAL
TheMerricat: It's very rare for a YT complaint or a Twitch complaint to actually get to the point where DMCA is actually involved because both Amazon and Google decided to roll over for media companies and instituted their own frameworks that are far more draconian
GapFiller: TheMerricat indeed one of those nobody needs to follow the letter of the law cz everyone understands the spirit enough as seen on many a totalitarian state
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Yeah. This week's Checkpoint was definitely a "righteous rage" episode

GapFiller: one or the other
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun no audio on the incoming screen in case it helps
PixelArtDragon: It's okay, we'll all just have to hum it to ourselves
RockPusher: lrrBEEJ_WH
NovaTiempo: Noises!
LoadingReadyRun: oops!
beowuuf: I assumed the counter was all linked? lol, there we go :)

Molladia: I'm anticipating more Eve Online news.
The_Quiet_Alestain: Thanks! Why? But thanks nonetheless! :) @adamjford.
TheMerricat: You know when they first divorced sub anniversaries from renewal dates it didn't bother me so much but now whenever I see this "Next Sub Anniversary on Nov 11 (in 19 days) | Sub renews on Oct 29 (in 6 days)" I get irritated.
TheAinMAP: lrrDOTS_PM lrrCIRCLE_PM lrrARROW_WH
beowuuf: yeah, an annoying disconnect :(
Juliamon: Yeah, it's frustrating. I can never remember my anniversary.
beowuuf: todayyy

Molladia: he's in bed still right?
EightBitDreams: Ack, he's behind me!
RobotInProgress: in my house?!

beowuuf: !adult ummm....
PharaohBender27 looks behind him

PixelArtDragon: Beej is in my fridge?!
RockPusher: Beej is always exactly where Beej intends to be lrrBEEJ_WH lrrBEEJ_WH lrrBEEJ_WH
Nigouki: is Beej still on the run after kililng Graham in the Crapshot?
couldntpickausername: at Kathleen's place eating the remains of Graham
red_shoes_jeff: Oh shit THE CRAWLSPACE!
GapFiller: good evening lrrPAUL Beej!Paul lrrHEATHER Beej!Heather lrrHEART
DevInsanity: The fact that my immediate reaction was to check behind me is worrying
Kikazi looks through his front door peephole just in case
Questhere: *checks under the table* Beej?
beowuuf: I'm guessing he's just decided to read all the EVE online stuff after all

Crokoking: i want beej's face to show up outside paul's window
RockPusher: PH balance - it's good for your skin!?
PixelArtDragon: That's an awesome name. Too bad it might be basic lrrBEEJ
Twilight_Spark: Wow okay.
GapFiller: also this way its not mildly tilting to see Paul in between Beej and Heather
MagicalAttackGecko: Filming
beowuuf: lol themerricat
GapFiller: for whatever reason always kinda bugs
PharaohBender27: Rustproofing a bee shed, perhaps
PharaohBender27: ?
ContingentCat: !dbcountdown
LRRbot: Desert Bus for Hope will begin at Fri 13 Nov 10:00 AM PST (20d, 20:51 from now)
TehAmelie: team HP, aka life
Juliamon: Maybe less Rustproofing and more Live prep
GapFiller: totally worth it
Buxx345: spicy graphics
RockPusher: Paul rejects regular crispy
RandomTrivia: Regularly Crisp?
ContingentCat: if you're going to record in a different resolution, extra is better than lower

constablecrab: Beejdrops are fallin' on my head... Beej's head... WHAT THE??
GapFiller: speaking of 4K in non video game news apparently people have been upscaling historical bw footage to 4K
Snowcookies: I did my homework
GapFiller: and historians are getting really angry abt it
RockPusher: I did my homework early this week lrrAWESOME
ContingentCat: best homework
RandomTrivia: @constablecrab LUL
MagicalAttackGecko: I did my homework last night paul!
TheMerricat: I'm a goldfish, memorywise :P
PixelArtDragon: If I'm not going to get around to doing my actual homework, I might was well make sure I do my CP homework.
beowuuf: it's creeping up there though, regularly getting to be 10 mins!
NovaTiempo: Also, need moar Eve story
RandomTrivia: All the while counting the rhetorical questions!
SnackPak_: Deep lore
beowuuf: the beej parts are real, the not beej parts aren't real
7gorobei: so what we need is a 5sec "previously on checkpoint" cold open?
ContingentCat: oh that's always been impossible to tell
EightBitDreams: Sounds like your average reality show
lord_bry0n: whoah that is meta
KV1NN4: Paul is a bit quieter
constablecrab: One of them is a muppet
Twilight_Spark: Porque no los dos?
wolgo: Does chillpoint have characters though
beowuuf: and the points are arbitrarily assigned
EightBitDreams: There is a large volume difference between you two
NovaTiempo: sound levels are good
GamesAndInk: Sounds good
beowuuf: wolgo: yeah, paul plays heather, and heather plays paul. They're freakily good at it
TheMerricat: Chillpoint is the portal between the real world and Commodore Hustle.
ContingentCat: sounds good
BrookJustBones: Paul is a little lower but not to bad
Something_Vaguely_Nerdy: paul just sounds way more chill :)
NovaTiempo: oooooooooow.
wolgo: @beowuuf XD
TheMerricat: Paul is about 80% of Heather's volume to me, both are fine IMO
RandomTrivia: Welp
RockPusher: Do we need to go over rhetorical questions?
jdarr5000: WHeres Beej!
beowuuf: Who needs to know about retorical questions?
KV1NN4: ok, for me if I turn Paul up to be clearer, Heather is overwhelming; I'll jsut listen harder
Snowcookies: Chat would love to go over rhetorical question
PharaohBender27: @jdarr5000 Away on a secret mission
GapFiller: the real story here ofc being Gamestop is still alive
GapFiller: currently at least
GamesAndInk: I want a Twitch channel to make SoundUp, SoundDown, SoundGood, and SoundOff emotes to make it easier to communicate "James is low, Adam's fine, game's muted"
PixelArtDragon: I'm looking forward to this being an anti-trust case
TehAmelie: you know LRR would use that to make a SoundLeft
Something_Vaguely_Nerdy: I wonder how they'll even mark the consoles as "sold by Gamestop"
TheMerricat: the confusing part is everyone is making up a guess as they are asked
Scar_Red_Tiger: YOu Paul, You are the Analysts
GamesAndInk: As an analyst, if you call me and ask for an opinion, you're going to get "Not enough data" regardless of how much data you give me XD
EvilBadman: @Something_Vaguely_Nerdy Serial numbers, if they wanted
ContingentCat: We need to normalize not having an opinion
EightBitDreams: Except for those grandmas buying consoles you always read about
Laserbeaks_Fury: Consoles a very much priced out of impulse buying

Scar_Red_Tiger: oop
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Scar_Red_Tiger! (Today's storm count: 16)
PixelArtDragon: What percentage would have to change for it to be worth the extra money is a good question
GamesAndInk: Honestly, this news makes me LESS likely to buy from GameStop. If I wanted an Xbox, and Walmart/Best Buy/Amazon didn't have one, I'd be like "Well... I'm not gonna get one from Gamestop because that supports them"
QuietJay: Thanks for the KPOPlove @scar_red_tiger
innovativemethods: More Xbox space, less Funko pop space?
constablecrab: When has Gamestop ever not had employees pressure customers to do things they already know they don't want to do?
DegHag subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 13 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, DegHag! (Today's storm count: 17)
LordZarano: I'm sure GameStop management thinks the GameStop employees make a big difference to consumer's purchase decisions
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ohh, is that a Celeste mug Heather's got?
PixelArtDragon: This is definitely going to lead to outrageous Xbox sales quotas at at least one GameStop somewhere
EightBitDreams: They already scan Nintendo serial numbers on console purchase, which is why Nintendo console boxes have holes in them
ContingentCat: that sounds far too nice to happen in 2020
TheOpps: Yeh, I was just about to mention the corporate Charity thing.
Something_Vaguely_Nerdy: yeah I remember seeing that and stopped doing the top up thing :\
TheMerricat: I don't mind things like Amazon Smile exactly because of what Paul just said
innovativemethods: the corporate charity thing increases donations in total, though, because a lot of people would not donate otherwise...
gravity_pike: yeah, between amazon and amazon smile, use smile, BUT also try to use neither
TehAmelie: if i shopped at Amazon to begin with. . .
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah, don't hate the service person for having to ask about that crap
rrtycoon2: Honestly, from a tax standpoint, the amount of money you give in charity with the topping off things on average would...barely dent what you owe.
NimrodXIV: sometimes round off like that is better than getting change, :D but yes then that company is getting the tax write-off
TheMerricat: The thing that I really really hate is when your boss leans on you to donate in their name. United Way can go fuck itself IMO
GapFiller: admission time: still not watched any part of that stream
GapFiller: really gotta get on that but otoh wheres the time
gravity_pike: AOC has an amazing Streamer Presence for having literally never done it before.
GamesAndInk: Is Twitch Streaming going to be this generation's "You could really sit down and drink a beer with them!"
PharaohBender27: @GamesAndInk Possibly?
innovativemethods: it absolutely is
GapFiller: definitely

JaysonMaxwell: "Remember a Month or so ago how BurgerKing used Twitch - this was the opposite of that"
TheMerricat: @gravity_pike OTH being a politician is an excellent training environment for being a streamer.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah, Among Us was an interesting choice
Snowcookies: lol Paul
ReynardWrecca: Evening everyone. Hope we've all had a good week.
TheOtherTrevor: I mean, with 400k viewers... perhaps
DeM0nFiRe: I watched some of the stream. I think the key is that it wasn't like "oh hello fellow humans I like to do human things too" she was like actually playing the game and chatting and joking and such
beowuuf: her speaking her thought process to chat throughout was cool
Mai_Andra: Tonight on Hannity: "AOC stabs her own supporters in the back, and they worship her for it."
GapFiller: TheMerricat it feels theres a chicken egg ting going on there
GapFiller: which teaches which
TehAmelie: wasn't she famous for playing Splatoon or something before? i guess it doesn't have the same audience interaction though
TheMerricat: Complementary @GapFiller they both require the same sort of skills.
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie I remember hearing that she was playing AC back in the spring
EightBitDreams: That's what made it funny
GapFiller: Mai_Andra and ofc Hannity is exactly the kinda old greybeard Fox pundit who is stuck in the pre video game eighties to get it
beowuuf: yeah, the game she's streamed before was name checked but I forget what it was
TheMerricat: I didn't mind Paul, I just was filled with envy.
innovativemethods: I voted by mail and it probably counted!
Kikazi: Loved AOC's first kill at the start, which she immediately accidentally self reported and managed to sell it
lord_bry0n: canada/bc dose have a very good election system
GamesAndInk: I found it boring if only because my state has rules that are roughly as easy and convenient as Beej described.
constablecrab: Beej explaining how things work is always fun.
ContingentCat: rubbing in how Canada lets you register day of, which yeah
gravity_pike: like, congrats on not having politicians who are actively trying to kill you, i guess
ReynardWrecca: I mean, we here in the UK have proved REPEATEDLY over the last five years that we cannot be trusted with democratic voting, so it's nice to see someone doing it right.
codatski: It was funny, but did make me kinda sad lol
EightBitDreams: Watch out for those tongue papercuts
Snowcookies: you can just use water if you want
ContingentCat: you could have used a sponge and water
beowuuf: actually, funniest / saddest part was the health care discussion because it was canadian / UK streamers speaking with americans
Kazman20a: sponge works
Scy_Anide: Not using pre-sealing envelopes is odd.
TheMerricat: They sell envelope stamps thingys
GapFiller: do they not have Pritt sticks in Canada
Scy_Anide: or self-sealing, whatever.
PixelArtDragon: I'm surprised they didn't do a tear-off strip
GapFiller: then again presumably those aint allowed here
rrtycoon2: That and usually you'd open it by slicing a side, not the licked spot anyway, right?
JaysonMaxwell: My envelope didn't seal - I broke down and used tape, hopefully that's okay X'D
iris_of_ether: Finger cots, yeah
Kikazi: envelope knife to slice it?
innovativemethods: pre-sealed envelopes are... less good
LordZarano: A letter knife
DeM0nFiRe: I voted Monday, they had a little water applicator thingy for "licking" the envelopes
NovaTiempo: Bring "the machine"
RandomTrivia: Some kind of surgically implanted letter opener
Zanaide: Glue stick
EvilBadman: You can craigslist someone to lick for you.
TehAmelie: a simple sponge is how we licked envelopes at the second hand toy store. . .
beowuuf: i like the idea that you can vote for a candidate but but a qualificatio non it - like 'yeah, voting for this person, but only because of this thing' that aoc mentions new york was doing
innovativemethods: but then you can't have tongue paper it's!
Snowcookies: ew
GapFiller: so no sealing the envelopes w/ a kiss then
innovativemethods: *papercuts
TheMerricat: That's how they prove it was your vote Paul! They track the DNA :P
PixelArtDragon: I've seen a little bottle with a sponge on it for people who have to do a lot of envelopes
Molladia: I got one of those postcards recently and had no idea it was coming.
ReynardWrecca: I worked in an office with an awesome thing that fires the envelopes down a fast conveyor belt with a rotating blade along one edge that slit them open. That was cool.
GapFiller: speaking of which presumably in when LRR mailed their own merch way back when somebody SWAK'd merch at some point
lord_bry0n: i forgot to request my mail in balot but was able to early vote no problem
PharaohBender27: @innovativemethods That's why I never do the "swipe the tongue along the seal" technique, but just do a bunch of vertical licks along it
GamesAndInk: Secret Hitler?
ContingentCat: eh it's the new hotness
TheMerricat: Vote for me I definately won't Betray you! :P
Scy_Anide: LRR has spoiled me on group streams. So many groups end up with everyone talking over each other and the audio is garbled and awful.
EightBitDreams: Hillary Clinton liked Tetris, AOC could have played Tetris 99
beowuuf: the streamer group they chose was relly chill and liked each other, i liked it. And that was a rotating group of streamers, etc
PixelArtDragon: It's certainly a good campaign idea, but I'm very curious how many of the viewers are actually eligible US voters.
ReynardWrecca: I guess AOC gets misquoted and decontextualised for basically everything she says, it might be refreshing to have that happen about extraterrrestrial murder.
EvilBadman: lrrARROW_TK www.iwillvote.com btw
Foxmar320: LRR did that on stream is was great
Laserbeaks_Fury: I'd love to see a joke negative ad about them "AOC.....She's very sus..."
gravity_pike: stream choppy for everyone or just me?
TheMerricat: no issues here @gravity_pike
beowuuf: check the quality settings, i keep having them default back to full :(
GapFiller: PixelArtDragon it feels we're getting to the point where most of them are
Molladia: #trustissues
constablecrab: same
Stoffern: Pokimane did
MAPBoardgames: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 26:35.
Stoffern: Im pretty sure
Kazman20a: that I understand completley
NovaTiempo: Chair!
TheMerricat: I played Among us yesterday with a crew of folk I used to work with, I'm glad we were friends or I would have taken issue with the fact that I kept being killed first :P
PharaohBender27: katesChair
GapFiller: TheMerricat was it the killing itself are the implicit sus? Kappa
Molladia: a phone ringing..... thats a sound I've not heard in a long time.
ContingentCat: yeah that could have gone bad
beowuuf: i love that she was like 'i'm terrible at lying face to face, maybe i'll get away with it in voice only?' , that's a qulity you want in a politician - can't lie! :D
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Snowcookies: AOC-LRR Crossing the Stream?
aiamethyst: Jacob might be interested in that tech
Crokoking: get them in on desertbus :P
Loonatic93: I was so happy that Minnesota was represented, quite well by Ilian Omar!
SnackPak_: Paul's got them good overlays
EightBitDreams: That would be amazing, LRR Presents Congressional AOC
MagicalAttackGecko: yes paul yes
ReynardWrecca: Ocasio-Cortez / Saunders for North American Presidents 2024!
MAPBoardgames: Technically speaking, lrrPAUL is a wizard.
wildpeaks: an AOC-LRR stream would be brilliant
RiiiisDK: I find Pauls window suspect... One is black and one is lit up...
beowuuf: loonatic93: who was a beast the first time they were the imposter! :D
Scy_Anide: That's just improving international relations
Zhedor: what are your consultation fees? I'm not even kidding, wec ould really use some experience of yours at work?
PharaohBender27: "Is AOC selling us out to Canada? More at 11"
Mai_Andra: I thought it was a phone ringing... shigiLw2
zkillzzz: CANADIANS INFLUENCING THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELLECTION
Loonatic93: @beowuuf Well, given how *some* Minnesotans feel about her... I personally love her, even if she isn't in my district.
Dread_Pirate_Westley: PacMan Mega Tummel.
TheMerricat: She did say it was a weird door bell noise :P @Mai_Andra
beowuuf: everyone all in the cloud now
beowuuf: loonatic93: interesting, i thought they came across very well in terms of personality there, anyway
Loonatic93: Speaking of Canada... If the unthinkable happens in November, can Canada please invade and annex Minnesota?
TheMerricat: @Loonatic93 I'm praying for alien invasion
GapFiller: oooh burning down the White House again eh Kappa
gravity_pike: Y'all up in BC happy with being canadian? What's the temp on Cascadia? Kappa
elah806: Mario 35 is a fascinating experience, I don't think I would pay for it
codatski: @loonatic93 @themerricat I'm just waiting to see what NASA has to say about the moon lol
ForOhForError: T spins!
Foxmar320: EXTREME Tetris is hard
Loonatic93: @beowuuf As far as her constituents, absolutely. But, many of the *orange lovers* came up with a whole bunch of crap about her. Stuff about marrying her brother to become a citizen or some such.
Loonatic93: @beowuuf Also something about Shakira Law.
TheMerricat: @codatski nothing ever bad happens when NASA finds something interesting on the moon. :P
Loonatic93: Yes, the misspelling was intentional.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are there ghosts in the Pac Royale?
Foxmar320: I saw one Mario 35 level where the person had like 20 Lakitus dropping spinies on them
beowuuf: loonatic93: that's unfortunate :(
Sarah_Serinde: Loonatic93 Let's take this out of chat please
RockPusher: The Moon announcement speculation is far more entertaining than what I anticipate the Moon announcement to actually be about
beowuuf: sorry sarah!
CaptainSpam: He's pretty slow, mind.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I don't think Bowser can turn around?
CaptainSpam: He can turn around and give chase, but he's slow.
constablecrab: No, Mr. Mario, I expect you to die!
GapFiller: having been watching Heathers Thousand Year Door playthru what I really want these days is Super Bowser World
TheMerricat: As long as they don't announce that they found giant transforming robots on the moon.....
TehAmelie: that sounds like a Super Mario World hack i'd play
GapFiller: TheMerricat whatif the moon is a dragon egg!?
QuietJay: Finding a monolith on the moon might also be problematic.
TheMerricat: I'll take it @GapFiller :)
beowuuf: what if the monolith is 1 x 4 x 8? And was sort of dark purple? That would just be disappointing :(
EightBitDreams: There is a free demo of the game on Stadia
TheMerricat: Framed in Obsidian? @beowuuf ? ;)
RiiiisDK: 1x4x8 cm / inches / lightyears??? :-)
TehAmelie: milliparsecs
QuietJay: Stadia has 3 free demo games right now.
Snowcookies: My friend works for Google Stadia
wildpeaks: we call it a "produit d'appel" in french but I'm not sure what the translation would be
GapFiller: gotta say that doorbell really does sound kinda like a phone ringing
codatski: Google just wants to be able to say Stadia was profitable
EightBitDreams: I think Stadia would have been great *if* it had powerful PC hardware behind it. For some reason it ended up with worse-than-Xbox One X graphics
beowuuf: themerricat: lol, if it ended up being a minecraft tie in i might actually not mind :D
RiiiisDK: there's some fun normalizing of the audio going on here :-)
RockPusher: What about the Splorts games channel?
LunarJade: @GapFiller I mean technically it is a phone. Its part of the intercom.
TheMerricat: The problem with channels for games is that 90% of the games I love are essentially one hit wonders from companies that never publish again or have just started pubulishing, or got absorbed afterwards
TehAmelie: hmm imagine a console that's hotwired to itch.io
theghostwiththemost subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 38 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, theghostwiththemost! (Today's storm count: 19)
GapFiller: LunarJade huh didnt know that thanks Heather
TheMerricat: I mean where would I have played Firewatch or Tacoma, or Gone Home if I was only playing games via a channel.
EightBitDreams: Luna has some really great smaller developer games, like Trails of Cold Steel 3 from Falcom
DeM0nFiRe: PS Now is kind of cool because it's a cloud thing, but for PS4 and PS2 games you can also download them and play them locally
Countzeroor: Lev Lekofka of TSR just passed away.
TheMerricat: :( @Countzeroor :(
EightBitDreams: That is accurate, Stadia you buy the games, except for Stadia Pro, whiuch is more like PS+
kais58: I don't...get them, like my 3080 came with a year of Geforce Now, but you can only play games you have...and I don't exactly need their horsepower, so why would I use it?
kais58: and steam works great for in-home
codatski: Honestly Gamepass and PSN are the only ones I expect to stick around. And Gamepass is already absorbing other services. All of EA access will be on Gamepass next month.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I've been using the Game Pass beat for PC and it's been great, except when I have to manage save files outside the game
QuietJay: Gotta click the free to me button
innovativemethods: they ALREADY have a separate sub for Ubisoft
innovativemethods: so yes Luna is going to do this because they ARE doing this
DevInsanity: I have SIX game stores installed. It's annoying
Laserbeaks_Fury: Dishonored 2 was about to leave the Game Pass, then suddenly it didn't, I guess because MS bought Bethesda
wildpeaks: makes sense
codatski: Gamepass has aquired EA Access games @lunarjade
innovativemethods: I run gog galaxy 2, a store for my stores
TehAmelie: i have like 10 or 12. maybe not all installed even, but i have games on them
TehAmelie: so silly
Foxmar320: I own Ubisoft games on Steam that open Uplay to play
Countzeroor: It Not Perfect System.
BrindleBoar: like a crap matryoshka doll
DeM0nFiRe: omg I have Jedi Falln Order and for some reason it shows up in my Epic, Steam, and Origin but it only works if I launch it from one of them and I always forget which one I actually have it on lol
MAPBoardgames: Now you're playing with Portals!
TheMerricat: On my old laptop because I was tired of launching games and having to wait for the launchers to update before I could play a game that hadn't been updated in three years, I tried keeping all the launchers loaded. That was part of the reason why I had 32gb of RAM installed and still had to close Chrome and Firefox to launch modern games.
EightBitDreams: I could easily see Ubisoft going Cloud-gaming
innovativemethods: Microsoft can do it! XCloud works great!
EightBitDreams: Them and Microsoft all have huge server farms all over the world, that really helps
DeM0nFiRe: Most of the internet is on amazon or google servers, so if they cant do it no one can LUL
codatski: Agreed, but I imagine it will be a format wars kind of thing. Not all can make it work profitably, and will likely sell out of it
DeM0nFiRe: Amazon already gave up on their Crucible game before most people even realized it launched LUL
wildpeaks: cloud is what brings them the most money, so it makes sense they try to push a product that makes heavy use of it
Laserbeaks_Fury: Probably, but that won't stop EVERYONE from trying to launch their own platform
DarkAbyssKeeper: Google has enough money that they've adopted a spaghetti throwing business plan.
TheMerricat: Google will cancel Stadia after they acutally manage to build large enough of a userbase for management to feel as if they'll earn enough tears and wails of pain to make it worth it. I swear they must have a deal with some sort of devil
Juliamon: Google tends to give things 6 months, then flips a coin whether they'll shut it down
wildpeaks: at least AWS for amazon, for Google I'm not sure
LordZarano: They are pushing Stadia hard on YouTube ads
Scy_Anide: Maybe Twitch should read up on it instead.
PharaohBender27: katesRage
MAPBoardgames: Kate is deleting all of her old VODs right now on her stream.
beowuuf: read up on the dmca, unlike us!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Someone must have put some outside pressure on Twitch
EightBitDreams: Especially if they don't know which VODs have them
Ivalenz_: It was too hard for Twitch to do its job so it swept everything into the trash bin.
PharaohBender27: Yeah, Kate's spent today downloading her channel's clips on a hard drive and then nuking them from Twitch
gravity_pike: I think the thing that gets me is "we have too many of these to review, so we're just going to go ahead and give you one strike."
wildpeaks: good thing LRR already has the backup youtube channel for the vods
innovativemethods: that is not a valid excuse. "it's a pain" is not a legal excuse.
codatski: Ah, but we broke the law by not letting counter the strike. Oh also, going forward it is a 3-strike and you are permanently banned under the going-forward plan
CastleOtranto: Is there any way a class action law suit doesn't come out of this?
PixelArtDragon: Of all the lessons to learn from this: Turns out YouTube could have been much worse when it comes to content flagging.
wildpeaks: they probably took it into account and it costs them less to do this than any potential lawsuit
EightBitDreams: Don't forget that Twitch started out as a service where you could watch one single guy streaming his entire life...
TheMerricat: Just a reminder, since we talked about it pre-stream, but neither Youtube/Google and Twitch's copyright/DMCA frameworks are actually the DMCA provisions, they are rules that Google and Amazon put into place to avoid having to deal with lawsuits from companies i.e. it's cheap for them to sell you out than it is to stick to the actual DMCA law.
red_shoes_jeff: Thing is, TELLING everyone you have done this scummy thing and then POINTING OUT the relevant laws for people to read up on, is basically putting up a big neon sign that says [CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT HERE].
DaSunao: Wait, this is what Justin tv turned into?
Kazman20a: if you look at your contract, you will find there is not much you can do. they get to delete what they want
sillatawum: if anyone complains, they can always just ban us for unspecified TOS violations
innovativemethods: Skeal!
red_shoes_jeff: Any other year, this might be kind of hilarious in its shady absurdity.
Ukon_Cairns: yeah, am curious to see if twitch will see any legal pushback after admitting to infringing on that part of the law.
EightBitDreams: @DaSunao Yup, justin.tv's most popular videos were when he was playing games and chatting with people, so they became Twitch
Foxmar320: On my channel I already don't play music. Now im just never played games that I know have copyrighted music like GTA.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, When I tired to stream Fallout4, all the songs were just automatically taken out by the PS4 itself
RockPusher: Wonder how annoyed the video game industry will be with the music industry when they force the issue of game streaming being technically illegal to be examined closely
TheMerricat: Height of Irony Twitch just popped up a little "going online" banner just now except instead of telling me someone was coming online it was suggesting I should buy someone a Twitch Gift card which can be redemed for bits or subs!
DaSunao: Holy shit, I had forgotten about that thing. I don't think I ever watched.
Kazman20a: if they get in legal trouble it will not be from streamers it maybe from copyright holders since they where not prompt in delivering and taking down
JaysonMaxwell: "Educate yourself on the law - just not the part about how we just broke it!"
codatski: I wonder if there is a way to build streaming-friendly tagging into purchased music that Twitch could automatically recognize and protects streamers?
DeM0nFiRe: RockPusher Video game industry already tried to get away with it themselves, a ton of companies started saying no one can make videos of their games a while back. MOst relented due to massive pushback
TheMerricat: @codatski yes, but that costs money.
Foxmar320: Yeah I deleted all my Control vods
LordZarano: Can't really play Brutal Legend properly and have vods
innovativemethods: @codatski yes, twitch now sells music for streamers to use for this very purpose!
NightValien28: is there a way to find which videos\clips are going to be hit with a dmca?
wildpeaks: some part of Life is Strange 2 was quite silly without song too
Juliamon: Dream Daddy has that
red_shoes_jeff: I really want there to be consequences for this. I just want 2021 to just be wall-to-wall karmic, legal, and financial backlash for everything the we've all had to put up with these last few years.
Foxmar320: I played Control with the music on is why I had to delete my vods
ContingentCat: Dream Daddy yeah
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh god, I'm having Hall of the Mountain King flashbacks
innovativemethods: @nightvalien28 no, it's literally up to the RIAA rep
MAPBoardgames: @NightValien28 There isn't, which is the problem.
PharaohBender27: @NightValien28 No clue, but I'm guessing not, which is why a lot of channels are just nuking all their clips
codatski: @innovativemethods Yeah, convenient isn't that? *eyes roll into the second dimension* lol
TheMerricat: @NightValien28 no, because filing a DMCA is a manual/automated process.
Ivalenz_: Technology progressed well ahead of the law and entrenched industries like RIAA who do not understand current culture.
NightValien28: PharaohBender27 oh crap, guess I gotta go on a deleting spree as well
wildpeaks: there are artists who get copyright claims against their own songs & uploads on youtube
innovativemethods: there are artists who get claims against PUBLIC DOMAIN songs.
Greypelt: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PDT (53m ago).
beowuuf: doesn't sharkfist get claimed against his own music or somethign stupid like that?
ForOhForError: They hit you for holst? dang
DeM0nFiRe: wildpeaks Happened to Black Sabbath LUL they released a song from their (then) upcoming album on youtube, and it got deleted like an hour later saying it had copyrighted music
TheMerricat: @red_shoes_jeff not to be political but it's unlikely that next year will be the year of reckoning. Unfortunately historically even if the best of outcomes comes up most of the year will be spent trying to actually convince the otherside to show up for work.
DaSunao: Like when a Doctor Who episode for a con stream got aggressively shut down by a bot?
Ivalenz_: Guilty until you fill out paperwork.
EightBitDreams: And the person who decides if your counterclaim was accurate...is the person who originally claimed
gizmofreak1 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 16 months!
gizmofreak1: Hi guys. Love the show.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, gizmofreak1! (Today's storm count: 20)
Foxmar320: Ive had claims on my replays of stuff thats not even in my replay
MagicalAttackGecko: How many times have someone tried to claim a LRR original as their own?
red_shoes_jeff: @TheMerricat A man can dream...
NightValien28: Foxmar320 wut
cuttlefishman: I mean, it's an AnoAni replacement
GapFiller: MagicalAttackGecko ask G abt Imaginarium Studios Kappa
Twilight_Spark: Who is?
Countzeroor: I got a claim once on a video of me in sitting in the front of my car with no music talking about Blade Runner 2049 by a copyright troll from Spain.
Drew_64: I find it bizzare that Youtube et al. don't have a system to hold the monetisation in a trust until the claim is resolved/not disputed. seems like implementing that would kill the industry that wants to exploit it.
FoudtheTroll: noo! but it-s so fun1
Molladia: Wait Beej has a podcast?
Foxmar320: NightValien28 People will try and make claims on anything even if its not there
RockPusher: The Spreadsheet Wars Podcast?
TheMerricat: @EightBitDreams thing is, the original deal was even if they decide if the counterclaim was acurate, your content is supposed to go back up and it all moves to lawsuit land. YT and Twitch circumvent that by not involving the DMCA and instead using their TOS to give the advantage to the complaintant.
Juliamon: If there isn't a weekly EVE News podcast that is a HUGE oversight
gravity_pike: I played Eve like 7 or 8 years ago; it is so much fun to talk about, and incredibly boring to play.
TehAmelie: it wouldn't be hard to use the technology that detects copyrighted stuff to contact the copyright holder and see what they want to do about it but that would be much less profitable
codatski: Like videos about sports! Not sports, videos ABOUT sports
innovativemethods: @drew_64 the reviewer of the claim is the person who initially filed the claim. that wouldn't do anything.
Twilight_Spark: In the past there have been Eve news websites.
Twilight_Spark: Dunno how they're faring atm.
MAPBoardgames: I love the EVE highlight stories. The rest of the stories are too tedious to follow.
wildpeaks: so it needs a podcast narrating the overarching plot & lore
PharaohBender27: I'm now starting to wonder what the whole DMCA will mean for Desert Bus in terms of Random Dance Parties, Carameldansen, and Late Night Dubfight :\
Laserbeaks_Fury: Trickledownians
FoudtheTroll: maybe a desert bus stretch goal? "a brief history of eve online"
ForOhForError: Sounds about right
AshBurnem: Quislings.
ContingentCat: @PharaohBender27 I thought DMCA is part of why the random dance parties are so short
beowuuf: ooh cool
Drew_64: @innovativemethods - video gets DMCA claimed, youtube doesnt pay the money to anyone, until X time has elapsed, or the person who is being claimed against succesfully counter claims. Is what I was suggesting. It can all be automated, no reviewers.
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 as stupid as it all seems the only way they'd be impacted is if someone got really stupid in the *IAA's, Twitch knows about DesertBus and has folk monitoring it so the automated system isn't likely to interfere, it'd have to be a bureaucratic moron who though hitting a well respected fund raiser for children, supported by highly vocal and visible people in the entertainment world was a good idea
innovativemethods: @drew_64 nothing makes a counterclaim successful.
wildpeaks: bone home, in spaace
innovativemethods: well, okay, going viral on twitter works. but no normal process.
RockPusher: TheMerricat I mean, the level of stupid in the *IAAs is pretty high lrrBEEJ
MAPBoardgames: Bureaucratic morons burned the BBC archives in 1979 to save on space.
ContingentCat: "is this a Eve or real world conflict" might be a good This or That
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames lrrWOW
TheMerricat: @Drew_64 the problem is none of this is going through the actual DMCA process because neither Google or Amazon want to deal with the horror of dealing with courts on this. So it's all based on the TOS instead of law and it's designed to keep the folk who are actually more likely to make Google or Amazon's life a mess (i.e. the media companies) happy than it is keeping the streamers happy esp since streamers are a dime a dozen and if one gets pissed off and leaves, 42 more are waiting in the wing
AshBurnem: I am hype for the Steam version of Dorf Fort.
TheMerricat: wings for their chance.
BlackIsis: There are literally two books about it
BlackIsis: From Andrew Groen
gravity_pike: The Empires of Eve book is real good.
gravity_pike: ^
Twilight_Spark: Eve is only periodically interesting, that's why you only hear about it once in awhile. I used to be big in Dust 514 before that shut down.
TehAmelie: i calculated could get really into eve if i had about 50,000 dollars to jumpstart a solid one-player fleet
kais58: I was super into eve, 10 year vet, you've talked about some of the things I was invloved in, but got out a couple years ago and no idea what's going on now
ContingentCat: @MAPBoardgames was that the same thing where they destroyed the last complete dodo skeleton or was that another time priceless archives were destroyed for space?
wildpeaks: a netflix show about the Eve Online universe could be fun
AshBurnem: Raconteur? The guy with the wrench and jetpack that fights Nazis?
cuttlefishman: Just came out today
cuttlefishman: It's... fine
MAPBoardgames: Yeah. I was wrong on the date. It ENDED in 1979. https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/501607/wipe-out-when-bbc-kept-erasing-its-own-history
GapFiller: oooh wonder what Serge will make of this
RockPusher: Pirates!
TheMerricat: wait, what? I missed the name of the game?
innovativemethods: nice!!
innovativemethods: civ6 meets pirates
xantos69: I still play that game from time to time
cuttlefishman: It's another MP Scenario for Civ, is a lot quicker than some of them
RockPusher: Are they adding dancing?
Pteraspidomorphi: I remember Pirates! being nice, but it's been a while
Jeezy56: Sid Meier's Pirates' Exclamation Point
innovativemethods: ah, mp only *sigh*
TehAmelie: a pirate civilization would be light on the civ stuff
MAPBoardgames: Pirates (exclamation point) was a great game!
cuttlefishman: I mean, you can play in solo versus AI in Civ 6 MP
cuttlefishman: But it's not that exciting
RockPusher: … dang it, I should load up Pirates! again
niccus: also with the most impressive bugs if you happen to run into them
Molladia: OH really, I through AC3 was the best one, with Connor the "Native American"
TehAmelie: shanties for bounties sounds great
quietcat: ah, Heather, I love your mug! It's so cute!
Scy_Anide: Fuck Ubisoft.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I dunno, what DO you do with a Drunken Sailor?
wildpeaks: the real treasure was the music we learned along the way
TheMerricat: @Molladia Hey if Kevin Costner can be the white savior of Dances with Wolves and John Wayne be Gengis Khan.....
AshBurnem: #FuckUbisoft
beowuuf: the real question is does that ac actually have henry rollisn in it?
Kaorti: @Laserbeaks_Fury Tunefully, *clap him in some irons*
innovativemethods: good!
ContingentCat: we like puns but not that much
GapFiller: thats the secret of Fortnite
Mai_Andra: xivGoob hashtag Bring Back Paragon xivGoob
GapFiller: not even Fortnite knows what kinda game it is
GapFiller: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always pivoting.
Tehbeard: They remind me of those mobile game ads that are actually for bejeweled clones.
GamesAndInk: Fortnite is a game where you pull pins out of a 2D maze to let a co-ed reach some treasure
wildpeaks: Fornite is a platform, not a game anymore
codatski: Trailers for Fortnite remind me of mobile game ads like the ones we talked about last week :/
ArcOfTheConclave: quite chunky
wildpeaks: Errant Signal even had a very good video on that topic
jessieimproved: Devs could be doing better on that you know
PharaohBender27: O_o
ContingentCat: players in the shadows? what are they just stealing ideas from Blaseball?
Foxmar320: Thats what Destiny 2 is doing with Beyond Light
TehAmelie: woo down with data bloat
tidehollowcat: I... What?
QuietJay: yes, it was over 90gb on pc
Foxmar320: File size is dropping by a lot
jessieimproved: asset sizes, it's all about asset sizes, sound files, images, etc
SnackPak_: So many skins, I guess?
TheMerricat: they took out all the micro transaction costumes no one bought.
Tehbeard: so... fortnite is ~0.36 CODs?
ContingentCat: so many dances?
AshBurnem: Warning: The Commissioner is still doing a great job.
jessieimproved: unpacked audio is HUGE
QuietJay: it's now 28.9gb on pc
ArcOfTheConclave: the bit mining?
TehAmelie: installs in the dozens of gigabytes is always mostly textures
jessieimproved: also wav files in multiple languaes
jessieimproved: languages
DarkAbyssKeeper: They removed the nsa package.
PharaohBender27: I should actually see what the chonkiest game on my desktop is at this point - I know it's not 90 GB, though
cuttlefishman: Gen-shone
GapFiller: speaking of games people shdnt be playing
AugmentingPath: It's pronounced Yimpasht
BrindleBoar: Gacha Impact: On Your Wallet
Foxmar320: I played that game until I got to the first loot box pull. Then I NOPEd out
DarkAbyssKeeper: Gen: Shin Impact. The generation who are stumbling and tripping the most.
codatski: Yeah screw that game
RobotInProgress: maybe one day I will escape the void of G:I
Mai_Andra: Final Fantasy XIV did reduced the PS4. I think the original download had reserved extra space to accommodate patch data. They redesigned it to better use the PS4 update structure... or something...
red_shoes_jeff: Does that game still tack on really invasive software when you download it?
Twilight_Spark: It's like a swear jar for the company. xD
DarkAbyssKeeper: Man i sure hope the bugs are hard to fix!
PharaohBender27: So apparently my chonkiest games are Witcher 3 at 50 GB, Wolfenstein: The New Order at 44 GB, and Dishonored 2 at 43 GB
niccus: that anti-cheat was gone
innovativemethods: that's not a crappy version! that's an EXCEPTIONAL version
KinoGami: gatcha games tend to always give currency for downtime
innovativemethods: we had a backhoe induced outage for five hours and got a $7 credit!
AugmentingPath: do your casino chores
Pteraspidomorphi: Most ISPs I've used in Europe have violated their SLA and did not repay their customers. I think that's just something they say
Tehbeard: Does the legalese for this in game payout exclude certain DOS-y sort of causes for a server being down?
Mai_Andra: mobile games do that frequently.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Bank Error in Your Favor. Collect $200
ArcOfTheConclave: that if MTGA compensated bad updates?
red_shoes_jeff: I still can't wrap my head around how a game can look SO well crafted, and SO boring, at the same time.
innovativemethods: the $9 airbnb credit
Mai_Andra: The big confusion around Genshin Impact is that it looks like a casual action JRPG with lootboxes, but it's actually a chinese gacha mobile game built up into a proper action game.
gravity_pike: never got my $50 from whoever it was losing my credit history
TheMerricat: The bank asks for the money back.
GamesAndInk: Bank Error In Your Favor: Gain $200, Lose $200 next week, Overdraft Fees $30
TheMerricat: @gravity_pike Equafax
KinoGami: yea in real life if the bank makes that error you are required to pay it back
JaysonMaxwell: Finders Keepers! lrrBEEJ
DeM0nFiRe: monopol is a documentary
MAPBoardgames: But if there's a bank error, NOT in your favor, you are prolly screwed.
BrookJustBones: I believe some countries have rules about low amounts in error are yours to keep, but I am not sure
KinoGami: the bank however if not required to tell you if they make an error in their favour
ContingentCat: I'm shocked, Shocked! well not that shocked.
MAPBoardgames: Monopoly just isn't a good game.
CommanderPulsar: Monopoly: Family Fight Starter Simulator.
jessieimproved: tabletop games that eject players completely before the game is over is not a great thing
gravity_pike: eternal MOOD
Molladia: a Vtuber? a what now?
MAPBoardgames: I keep seeing these anime-girl insert games.
TheMerricat: As a reminder Monopoly was originally meant to be an intentionally unfun game to teach about the evils of capitalism. Then in a height of irony was stolen and repurposed to glorify subverting it.
TehAmelie: two things stand in the way of my playing Doom Eternal: money, install size and time
KinoGami: virtual tuber
KinoGami: like kazuna AI
gravity_pike: vtubers use virtual avatars to stream
PharaohBender27: I remember an AFK stream of Monopoly, which ended with lrrBEEEJ , lrrIAN , and lrrKATHLEEN essentially saying "This is a miserable slog of a game to play if you use the actual rules and no 'house rules'"
innovativemethods: vtubers are virtual YouTubers, people who stream using a motion mapped virtual avatar
Laserbeaks_Fury: The face tracking is getting really good
Molladia: it's ok to be horrified right?
Die_N_Honor: Call out the weebs Kappa
ContingentCat: yeah you'd be right to say weebs
TheMerricat: samples of what VTubers are - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMe5FejMwv8
gravity_pike: I was shocked to learn that they're like 25, I assumed that they were all teenagers.
RockPusher: Weebs gonna weeb lrrBEEJ
Scy_Anide: Having an avatar and a username on the internet? That's silly.
wildpeaks: some of us have a face made for radio or just shy, or simply don't like showing personal infos on the internet
RockPusher: A stable of horse-girl v-tubers lrrBEEJ
GamesAndInk: Being a vtuber can also be a great way to stream if you have some dysphoria with your appearance
Molladia: Ok Merricat, I was ready to be damaged by that, but.... instead I'll just avoid it
GamesAndInk: Or v oice
ArcOfTheConclave: the kayfabe
accountmadeforants: A shark lady? How much shark, by percentage, are we talking?
TheMerricat: @Molladia I picked one that was just OK vs making fun of them or whatnot. It's safe to watch
Lord_Hosk: So kinda like how ASMR isn't necessarily 20 somethings being semi-sexual with their sounds, but it certainly seems to be a dominant trend.
TehAmelie: i was just thinking about vtubing might be fun for my dysphoria
ContingentCat: I think this is a good sign my internet experience curation is working that I haven't seen this vtuber stuff
TheMerricat: @Molladia and my brain just actually parsed what you typed, NVM :)
RockPusher: I should become a V-Tuber - no face tracking, just a picture of a potato lrrBEEJ

Nathade: Thanks for the KPOPcheer @3and4fifths
PharaohBender27: katesSub
ritchards: Thanks for the KPOPfan @3and4fifths
ContingentCat: sergeHolyMoly
beowuuf: lrrHEART
GapFiller: they have remade Shadow Dragon at least
Criiisiis: thanks 3and4fifths
JaysonMaxwell: LuvGift !!! lrrHEART
innovativemethods: except they did! Shadow Dragon was out for the 3DS! it's the same game!!
GapFiller: they kinda had to as Shadow Dragon was the OG after all
NighSeptem: 3and4fifths thank you for the gift sub
Kikazi: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
BrookJustBones: Extra fun game news, RuneScape just got released on steam
krasafaren: I'm dying in my sleep in the wait for Dragon's Dogma 2, and I feel like I'm almost alone in that.
GapFiller: innovativemethods technically it was a remake
GapFiller: Marth Debut in Smash Bros is a whole trope
DeM0nFiRe: innovativemethods Ehhh Shadow Dragon is a remake and even has different mechanics, not really the same game
MAPBoardgames: I main Marth. I've never played FE.
RunningMonkeys: I am really excited to finally be able to play the og FE.
ptay313: woohoo!
AugmentingPath: ssb #FE final destination sessions
Mai_Andra: shigiLw2
ArcOfTheConclave: HAHAHAHAHA
vrecken: I don’t think there were any English FE games before that.
ContingentCat: good news March doesn't seem to be ending
Raiz0k subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 80 months, currently on a 80 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Raiz0k! (Today's storm count: 42)
ptay313: I have a backlog of fire emblem games to play still
accountmadeforants: GapFiller That Siliconera quote at the top is solid
innovativemethods: the first fire emblem is... not... the best. things improved over time.
innovativemethods: like, sacred Stones is the first one that's reasonably playable
AshBurnem: Final Fantasy 1 is amazing!
KinoGami: i did go back and play FF1
TheMerricat: You heard it here chat! Remaster FF!
Scar_Red_Tiger: Gimme Thacia 776
MAPBoardgames: FF1 is awesome. Fight me.
Ukon_Cairns: yeah, for some the history is nice. for most the loss of decades of Quality of Life improvements is not a wanted thing
RunningMonkeys: As some one who has played a lot of old fe games I would have preferred 4, 5, or 6 but I'm still really excited about this
NimrodXIV: FF1 is the only one I ever finished. lol
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Final Fantasy is a heck of a lot better than 13.
GapFiller: FFII is the best FF Kappa
ptay313: Awakening is probably my favorite game in the series
MAPBoardgames: LOL! lrrPAUL
DaSunao: I just learned there was a chromecast attached to the living room TV and that I can get it to do Twitch
niccus: oh, on a similar note, Rogue is out!
vrecken: genealogy of the holy war is also acceptable
Mai_Andra: FF1 is nice, but it's very unbalanced. You can just have a party of 4 warriors and tape down the confirm button, then just walk through the entire game. Any other choice just makes combat take longer...
AugmentingPath: @niccus never heard of it. What's it like?
edgeyberzerker: a pure experience!
accountmadeforants: There was an EasyAllies series about that, too, about someone playing Pokémon (Red?) for the first time. It was so great.
storiers: Final Fantasy I is an okay Final Fantasy game if the thing you like about Final Fantasies is the mechanics, not the story. Not sure how big an audience that is
niccus: it's like a lot of games
DeM0nFiRe: Also in the case of Fire Emblem the best one is actually unironically the first one that came out in north america, FE7 for GBA
ArcOfTheConclave: FOMO is gross
JohnPraw: The Nintendo Vault
EightBitDreams: The bits are going to start molding
Mai_Andra: I'm very excited for the classic Final Fantasy Legend collection coming out on Switch. Those were my first FF games, even though they were actually SAGA games. shigiHype
DaSunao: Thanks for the KPOPfan @raiz0k
DaSunao: Thanks for the KPOPglow @3and4fifths
innovativemethods: FE7 is very forward-only. I really liked the story of 7, no joke, but the gameplay was *very* demanding in a way later ones are not
wiigamer1995: ferroThink
EightBitDreams: The NIntendo employee who loves those games is leaving the company in March
edgeyberzerker: Fighting EX layer did!
GapFiller: eyyy CanLand
Mai_Andra: The time-limit is the April Fool joke. =|
frage069: See Roosterteeth and their anniversery being April 1

TheMerricat: @Raiz0k it is Cam as the GM, so it's possble they all just live with crippling emotional damage :P
