BusTed: what if hades was a boy

Getter404: Wow, wasn't expecting this level of philosophical discourse
Earthenone: thats good life advice there
TehAmelie: rhythom-eter or rhyth-ometer?
Earthenone: breaking pots too, very zelda
RockPusher: !advice
LRRbot: Just jam it in there.
Solipsody: That slide can't be good for your sword.
accountmadeforants: Thanks dad by way of you slicing off a titan's toe nail and then replacing your eye with it, or some other kinda wonky creation myth
TehAmelie: this looks like it would be a rad hack & slash platformer
Rogue_07: Are we punching skelemans?
SFSMaus: combo breaker!
CaptainSpam: That music reminded me a bit of Woah Dave! for some reason...
readyforperfect: groovy
Getter404: Well these are gods, there's a very real chance he could be your son. Or both.
Earthenone: maybe its just you shaking
TehAmelie: that profile looks like Ian
Traion: 100% Ian
SFSMaus: is Lyrik having a stroke?
elkae: The shield looks like a plate during the dialogue
DeM0nFiRe: Wait this isn't Zelda 2?
Solipsody: Kind of disappointed smashing the pots doesn't make a smashing noise.
Rogue_07: Mysterio-sama?!
Earthenone: praise the sun?
TehAmelie: i think we do see Apollo
elkae: Headless snapper
DarkMorford: Is Charles Martinet in this game? And if not, why?
Getter404: The King of All Cosmos looks... different.
accountmadeforants: Sun 2 smiles on you. (Also, this aesthetic and track reminds me of A Dance of Fire and Ice)
TehAmelie: oh, it's the titan guy from John Wick
elkae: Hello there! This god looks very godly
elkae: Fashion on point
constablecrab: sun chips
DarkMorford: Sun Chips!

RealGamerCow: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
Rogue_07: Ian why
SFSMaus: lrrHAM
constablecrab: burstin' with ribs

Traion: Selene and Eros?
TehAmelie: what if i told you you have a moist bag of ribs on you already?

Rogue_07: Is the Moon Tiara Power just a hangover cure?
Traion: So is Eos responsible for the hungover walk home?
TehAmelie: if this game starts playing Modern Talking i won't be surprised like, at all
Earthenone: we are always in the fanfiction timeline on this show

TehAmelie: sweet headbangin
Earthenone: party on seline
SFSMaus: Is this game metal?
QuietJay: Silverhand
Solipsody: Selene has a beard?
Traion: Are we gonna call Theia and Hyperion to come pick up their kids?
Rogue_07: Oh wow, she is metal AF
Pteraspidomorphi: The post-pre-party party?
TehAmelie: a metal moon? are we in Iron Sky now?
PaperDoopliss: Selene really likes her caps
Juliamon: Got it memorized?
chaostreader: @juliamon Dammit. I thought the same thing.
readyforperfect: i pop out for a second and now the moon is headbanging? game of the year right here
Earthenone: i thought she was seline not beat!
TehAmelie: Neon Drift? i think i've dreamed this crossover fanfic
DarkMorford: I mean, the Switch does have OS-level remapping...
accountmadeforants: Hi Beat, I'm Lyrik. Wait, that's not what that was?
monosceros: house of lies!
AmishCarBomb: White Castle DAnsGame
Traion: Hyperion, Titan of Light, is probably gonna have a good show
elkae: 69 o'clock, eh?
Laserbeaks_Fury: You can't keep time without Kronos
Earthenone: is this a daylight savings time origin story?
SFSMaus: Dawn dawn dawn
RandomTrivia: Are we going to fall off the end?
TehAmelie: more like HACKveduct
Traion: Oh Eos looks rad
Painfully_Dyslexic: this game gives me Hyper Light Drifter vibes
elkae: Is Eos weeping?
RandomTrivia: LUL
Laserbeaks_Fury: this beat is very PPG
RandomTrivia: "Look, an anachronism" is my favourite kind of fourth wall break
constablecrab: Time for coffee pong
SFSMaus: She should have strived for Alpha Flight
FarleyF: Beats by Zeus
constablecrab: wow rude
RockPusher: Ear. Gunk.
Traion: Careful Heather the last guy that made Hyperion mad got castrated with a sickle
AmishCarBomb: "One of you is Sailor Moon" LuL
constablecrab: There's bones and shattered pottery everywhere!
SeismicLawns: "I'm a god" -but you're not my dad tho
elkae: Nooo the broken pottery is adding to the mess!
PendelSteven: 'Ello KonCha
SFSMaus: wait you're busting more pottery.
SFSMaus: Clean!
Dog_of_Myth: Hola all
elkae: You unlocked the "Mmm Squishy" trophy
AmishCarBomb: Pottery and trees apparently
RockPusher: No matter where pottery might hide, Heather shall defeat it!
PendelSteven: Harry Pottery?
RockPusher: Some damn fine muscle touching going on in the background there
Traion: But what about my girl Theia. Aren't we gonna meet my fave?
Solipsody: So... Why are the versions in the background headless?
TehAmelie: they seem to have the symbols of their office for heads
elkae: Probably somewhat less distracting?
SFSMaus: At least the save points are more reasonable than Space Channel 5
PendelSteven: jump!
PendelSteven: Go ahead and juhump!
elkae: "Whatch" your step? Oh no
PendelSteven: #randomlyrics
readyforperfect: "well cool! i've made some friends who i hope to never see again."

azureHaights: I thought a squeaky wheel gets degrees

AmishCarBomb: Gyro?
korvys: Jocrates
azureHaights: Giorgios?
SpoonfullOfSugar: Jodeous
Solipsody: So... The new antagonists look exactly like the old antagonists. Definitely for plot reasons and not to avoid creating new art.
SFSMaus: Mmmmmmm, gyroes
azureHaights: Wait, Georgios is already canon in Jojo
azureHaights: (you know, because Wham)
elkae: The hair hat is the biggest mystery in that series
TehAmelie: i think we'll have to make it
PendelSteven: anime huh?
Solipsody: Would the characters in a Jojo rhythm game have music by their namesake bands?
Invitare: Jojo's Rhythmic Adventure
AmishCarBomb: Bloody Storm Dance Mania?
SFSMaus: Sounds like the perfect LRR project
ApodoNuevo: Sold with a plastic peripheral instrument, where you play a banjojo
azureHaights: Speaking of Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, I still love how all the trivia in that one Salute Your Shorts episode was actually true
RealGamerCow: So 2nd chapter is literally just 1st chapter, but more?
PendelSteven: Georgio who?
TehAmelie: i think you can get a yoyo with a bullroarer
warkettletwitch: hi!
azureHaights: @PendelSteven George Michael
PendelSteven: Franchise?
PendelSteven: Hakkuh!
Decaped: this game needs drums, or bass, or some kind of rhythm track!
TehAmelie: the amount of shield beams any tree monster needs feels very arbitrary
RobotInProgress: ravers outfit
readyforperfect: school girl nagas is something else
TehAmelie: looks like an extra from Monster Prom
korvys: I think it's a breastplate (grey on grey skin, though), and those armoured greek skirts
Traion: So Ian for the Hyperion level how about you read Keats' Hyperion to the beat Kappa
RobotInProgress: its Rave attire~!
DarkMorford: @TehAmelie That reminds me, Monster Camp just came out. I should play that a bit tonight.
constablecrab: Speaking of, Monster Prom 2 has really good music.
TehAmelie: good idea

SydPreviouslyHeadache: new dad, who dis
lirazel64: I sense a horrible Zeus.
SFSMaus: in the shape of a goose.
lirazel64: Goose... swan... same diff?
SFSMaus: (I thought LRR had a goose emote)
SFSMaus: must be on the DB account
Sarah_Serinde: DB doesn't have emotes
Sarah_Serinde: We do have !y
Sarah_Serinde: But I don't remember who has goose emotes
Juliamon: LRR has a goose emote on the discord
Sarah_Serinde: Ahhh right so it does
Invitare: nah Zeus turned into a Swan, not a goose
Juliamon: They aren't shared with Twitch though.
SFSMaus: 'ello
Rogue_07: I've never heard of aging candy canes before
Rogue_07: now I want one
RockPusher: Fine, table-aged, candy canes
Snowcookies: candy canes!
SFSMaus: Artisan candy canes
TehAmelie: i think you're supposed to just lick them
RockPusher: make sure you get the woody notes from the table veneer
PendelSteven: Maybe I don't really wanna know how your garden grows
readyforperfect: the menu music is a total jam
Max_Mckayful: Hey Ian, could you do that joke again?
SFSMaus: The hands go on the hips
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS

CyndaneTierney: I would have to speed up the scrolling so that those icons get separated a bit, but I don't know if that's a thing in this game. I had to do that all the time on harder DDR difficulties.
RockPusher: Party Gorgon!
RandomTrivia: Every time one of the sword icons moves it throws my brain completely
RandomTrivia: That's evil
readyforperfect: lord that's so many buttons
RockPusher: good enough!!!
RandomTrivia: Yeah!!! Nice
PendelSteven: yay
readyforperfect: good enough!!!
TehAmelie: now picture this in hard mode, with 1.2x speed
SFSMaus: Woo!
Dog_of_Myth: lrrAWESOME
readyforperfect: second dad?! nosferatu...
RandomTrivia: Wait, are the real friends the friends we made along the way?!
TehAmelie: the only dependable mortal is a dead mortal, you'd think
RockPusher: get wrecked smellingtons
readyforperfect: i laughed out loud at "is"
RandomTrivia: Oh that's cool, like it's putting the whole game in fast forward, not just the levels
TehAmelie: when they say "factor" it makes me think it'll "keep" accelerating, Desert Bus style
TehAmelie: it's probably not what they meant but it would be ridiculous
RockPusher: Rhythm Cafe, but it speeds up every time Ian does a voice lrrBEEJ
Mysticman89: sometimes theres faster speed, but bigger gaps between notes so its arguably the same difficulty
readyforperfect: this song slaps at 1.2 speed
RaklarLS: rocking out to the midiest of midis
RandomTrivia: There *was* a trophy for that....

SnackPak_: Thanks Siri!
Invitare: Siri: "Activating God Mode"
RealGamerCow: you were getting godmode points at some point
Mysticman89: I read it as you're one on one with god (NPC) gods of rhythm
Traion: I think Godmode was the second half of the stage
Mysticman89: also the game description does say single player
Mysticman89: trophies where you need to intentional play sub optimally are meh
RealGamerCow: Back on the xbox 360 I used to be big into getting cheevo points.
RealGamerCow: including renting games that gave you easy cheevos from Gamefly
Traion: This is Early Access right?
Traion: Just felt like there was a story arc missing at the end
SFSMaus: It appears they left the story for number 2 where we could meet second God dad.
Traion: Nice score
readyforperfect: nice
RandomTrivia: Instrument as input is the logical extreme of the "play-the-music" end of that spectrum
Traion: The art for Eos is so good
RealGamerCow: This game is $2.25 right now, so still good value
RealGamerCow: Ian and Heather, how does one get the Rhythm Heaven games on the Switch?
Traion: First you elect Heather President of Earth, then she forces Nintendo to put more Rhythm Heaven on the switch Kappa
RandomTrivia: Perfectly planned

RandomTrivia: That is quite aggressive screen shake
CaptainSpam: Hm, yeah, that's a bit excessive on the effects.
RealGamerCow: very glad you turned that off
CaptainSpam: That's not quite Vlambeer level of screen shake, but still.
Traion: So the side throbs are for the hearing impaired I guess. To let them know the beat?
RandomTrivia: The moment it gets busy it's going to be hell
RealGamerCow: That gave me motion sickness almost immediately.
