TehAmelie: how many 24 hour news channels are there on the TV? i have no idea
Juliamon: tons
ContingentCat: Too many
Juliamon: It's an addiction for many
corianderd: Are y'all ready to blend investigation with action adventure?
jessieimproved: just say no to tv news
Juliamon: Let's SWEEP some CHIMNEYS
jessieimproved: yasss
ContingentCat: yessss
jessieimproved: no news, all talking sim
jessieimproved: talking sim then crossing the nopes
TehAmelie: i just read a comic about an adolescent chimneysweep from the victorian era who got turned into a monster
Juliamon: (but seriously, please use the lrrcord politics channel if necessary, we want to keep the stream chat a safe zone
Juliamon: )
jessieimproved: lrrHEART lrrHEART
margieargie: I've been watching the Moriarty anime that's going on this season, so hopefully that hasn't effected the Holmes part of my brain :p
TehAmelie: you know, they needed starving orphans to climb those 9 inch chutes
TehAmelie: don't know what this game is about but i'm gambling on there being some connection

LordZarano: Gront IS a muppet
TehAmelie: wow, i timed my break perfectly
SeiichiSin: The opening for Talking Simulator gets me to laugh every time.
wildpeaks: traditional "something something should redo the intro one day" greetings
ContingentCat: Hello Cam and Cori
jessieimproved: it needs a Cori update though
ContingentCat: how dare Cori
Solipsody: Okay, I am glad she's addressing that.
TehAmelie: hello team C&C
wildpeaks: *gasp*
margieargie: Or worst of all, mixing up Pelagianism and semi-Pelagianism!
soundlord775: what is talkin sim? I am new to the non mtg stuff
LordZarano: Cori's a little quiet
Juliamon: soundlord775 Thoughtful inspection of games
Pteraspidomorphi: Appropriate
Solipsody: Well, fortunately Sherlock Holmes is a subject about which no one can possibly nitpick minor points of canon and history!
SeiichiSin: I like the glasses Cam, not sure if they are new or if I'm just now noticing them for the first time, but they look good.
ContingentCat: you are forgiven Cori, just this once (tranlators note: not just this one forgiveness is infinite)
codatski: A game I absolutely love and it is NOT a good game. But I love it
soundlord775: @Juliamon thanks
wildpeaks: also, drugs
ameliette: judging by that laugh this is gonna be good?
wildpeaks: exactly :D
HorusFive: like Encyclopdia Brown, but with more murder
DanielJGrouse: Devil's Daughter is a unique experience
wildpeaks: it's a good one to get started
djalternative: Is Sherlock classically a cocaine man or a heroine man?
Rivulatus_: the well known crime.solving powers of cocaine.
TehAmelie: i'm sure it will be more canon-compliant than Enola Holmes at least. that's the benchmark now, right
readyforperfect: this is my first time on talking sim and i have no idea what to expect but i like the vibes so far
noSmokeFire: "It looks as though someone has rubber a yoyo on this honeyed hand"
wildpeaks: drugs ? *David Madsen has entered the chat*
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Pteraspidomorphi: Is the dishwasher broken?

Solipsody: @djalternative Cocaine. Heroin doesn't work with his lifestyle of running around and coming to conclusions very fast.
teammanfred: Somebody tried to send a sign.
CaptainSpam: The notifier seems to be significantly louder than all other audio...
Juliamon: CaptainSpam We're aware and have told Paul
TehAmelie: i like "Detective Crime Thriller". it has the cadence of "Tactical Espionage Action"
wildpeaks: controller was spooped
Juliamon: It's an ongoing issue
Solipsody: Is there a minigame where you establish the difference between deductive and inductive reasoning?
noSmokeFire: the mystery of who murdered the controller
djalternative: @Solipsody okay. I can never remember which one is classic and which one Cumberbatch uses.
Ashton: We don't negotiate with controllers
HorusFive: In this economy!!!!
margieargie: Bring in a scab controller
Foxmar320: Controller plz
Pteraspidomorphi: Maybe it also wants to be washed
norivia: i stand with the controller union
wildpeaks: it is agreeing to your terms
CaptainSpam: Oh no the controller's gonna blow!
noSmokeFire: inductive reasoning is perpendicular to electric current
CAKHost: It can have my 123K channel points if that will help?
CAKHost: That's like money right?
Foxmar320: The true final boss is controller pairing
wildpeaks: welp, mouse and keyborad it is then
TehAmelie: i think of Cumberbatch-Sherlock's reasoning as reductive, or what is it when you take the most likely explanation as absolute fact
wildpeaks: that's quite the image :D
noSmokeFire: @CAKHost both channel points and money both have subjective value ascribed to them by humanity
Solipsody: @djalternative From The Sign of Four: ' “It is cocaine,” he said, “a seven-per-cent solution. Would you care to try it?” '
GapFiller: good evening lrrCAMERON Cam lrrCORI Cori lrrHEART
Foxmar320: Someone should really clean those windows. So many hand prints
Arisa_Unohana: I spy a stray Cameron :D
Solipsody: It has a "Find Gameplay" button. That's a good sign, righT?
Foxmar320: That man is kinda sus
jessieimproved: i like the art direction so far
PabstBlueFalcon: Sherlock, in hot pursuit of cocaine
EricTheOrange: So I saw this was by Frogwares, is this one in their long series of Sherlock Holmes games or is this something else entirely?
noSmokeFire: birds got 'im
wildpeaks: so, we ate someone's last cookie and they appear to be very mad at us
Nigouki: fudge I'm late, did I miss anything exciting?
jessieimproved: just got started
wildpeaks: it just started
noSmokeFire: @Nigouki controller issues
thatguy575: tactical role!
Juliamon: Literally just started the game.
RandomTrivia: Welp, already we have a predestination paradox
Nigouki: ah
RandomTrivia: None of our decisions matter
Arisa_Unohana: Yes. Yes you are, Cam xD
jessieimproved: that would track with Holmes
margieargie: It's Sherlock Holmes, I'd believe it
Juliamon: Ugh, take your SHOES OFF in the house, man!
Involume: Am I too late to the party to say Jeremy Brett was best Sherlock?
Solipsody: Holmes only owns one set of clothes. He makes Watson wash them every day.
Solipsody: @Involume It's never too late to be 100% correct.
Gekyouryuu: my favorite sherlock was the CBS show elementary
Arisa_Unohana: Watson has never looked so sleazy O.o
Involume: @solipsody awwww yeeeeah
Blue_Anteater: @Gekyouryuu Elementary was a great show!
Pteraspidomorphi: I thought the cure was drugs
GhostValv: we could change that
TimbrePanic: @Gekyouryuu Yes!! It's by far my favourite modern sherlock holmes story
Gekyouryuu: @pteraspidomorphi as with most medicine
TehAmelie: Alan Moore's Holmes is my favorite. maybe cause he only has like two scenes
Thisbymaster: yes, that is the ONLY cause of pale skin
RandomTrivia: It's a good thing Sherlock has the power to pause time while he looks around
Blue_Anteater: The Great Mouse Detective is my favorite Sherlock Holmes adaptation, though. :p
Solipsody: Patch on his best - Someone sewed it for him?
Pteraspidomorphi: Pale skin. Cause: British
Solipsody: Vest, not best.
TehAmelie: time stands still for Holmes' deducti-vision!
Involume: Maybe it's the Jonathan Swift I've been reading but that orphan looks delicious.
TehAmelie: i like that as a mechanic
EricTheOrange: he coulda mended it himself.
Solipsody: With those sausage fingers? Please.
Rivulatus_: that is a. life of an elder person then a child.
Blue_Anteater: @EricTheOrange Would a young boy have been taught to sew, even in that time?
EricTheOrange: So the one thing i know about these games is you look out the window and see the large lady in the building across the way.
Makhiel: game audio is low?
Involume: a little low yeah
Solipsody: So Mr. Hurst got a job as prey for a human hunt, like you do, and he ducked too slow. It's a shame, but it happens.
TehAmelie: i do like when games give you, the player, superhuman skills as the player character by game mechanics. see: Snake tracking people through walls
EricTheOrange: @Blue_Anteater I mean probably not, but Holmes is making some jumps in reasoning.
Orgmastron: Crimes?
TehAmelie: um, is Cori quiet?
Blue_Anteater: @EricTheOrange I mean, fair XD
potatowraiths: hello
RandomTrivia: Sherlock's VA reminds me a little of Rupert Everett, specifically his Prince Charming
potatowraiths: user formerly known as sir_jack_DB here
TehAmelie: oh there you are
noSmokeFire: first you must locate the analgesic to get past the door
potatowraiths: because Twitch is borked
wildpeaks: emphasis on "try"
TheMerricat: @EricTheOrange I've found that most detective stories have huge leaps in logic to come to their 'natural' conclusions.
Arisa_Unohana: Does Cori know the game?
noSmokeFire: legs: engage!
Solipsody: How much method acting did you snort before starting this stream, Cam?
Twilight_Spark: For a flat this size is London, approximately...$3B and one of the crown jewels.
TehAmelie: per month?
SachielOne: per week.
codatski: There is a lot to talk about with this game. I hope you see it through
TheMerricat: Holmes is known for his lack of understanding of boundaries
Nigouki: ooooooh nooooooo
Involume: I've been playing the game before this one. it's a lot of fun but this one is more polished.
Mangledpixel: dress up time!
ryanccurtis: I like the hat!
Solipsody: Monster Factory!
Twilight_Spark: Oh no it's the hat.
theneatestburrito: Are we John Hamm?
KWardJenx: Jon Hamm looking nicely Victorian.
evilspoons983: bathrobe needs a cigar
noSmokeFire: cam, I am begging you to give this man a mustache
RandomTrivia: Oh good, there's an Arthur Dent cosplay option
Pteraspidomorphi: Going to the races?
EricTheOrange: OK I'm not up on victorian era sports but what sports do you play with a Tie on? Polo?
Juliamon: Sherlock Holmes, the Man of Many Hats (Literally)
Solipsody: Jacob?
wildpeaks: oh god
Pteraspidomorphi: :D
Twilight_Spark: Right on the Thames sir, I was brought around to it in Oxford. Before I was rusticated of course, shocking business that. anneKappa
GhostValv: :O
RandomTrivia: OH NO
TehAmelie: Holmes is always known for his unrecognizable disguises. . .
Ashton: : chefs kiss :
TheMerricat: Gentlemanly Sports, @EricTheOrange . Gentlemanly Sports.
GapFiller: that is so wrong its perfect
CAKHost: I'm getting flash backs to a commador 64 game of barbie where you can dress her up for these parties that ken invited you to. But I kept dressing her up in the wrong outfits for the parties
evilspoons983: he looks like he's in a 2000s indie rock band
PixelArtDragon: That beard is the Karl Marx
PotatoWraiths: I am here for some free association bullshit
RandomTrivia: At least one of those moustaches wants regular twirling
PabstBlueFalcon: I love how the 5 o'clock shadow is a constant
Mysticman89: but im just gonna sleep in the bed again later and mess it up again
Magnifisquatch: I'm not freaking out... YOU'RE FREAKING OUT
TheMerricat: that's what the maid is for
TehAmelie: did you know making your bed makes it a better breeding ground for microbes?
evilspoons983: shaving daily is for hippies
Arisa_Unohana: Gotta go to sleep but good luck you two LuvSign
RandomTrivia: Nice, taking the stairs 2 and a half at a time
TheMerricat: night @Arisa_Unohana !
OldManJohnsonMB: No horse shit in the streets? 4/10
Alahmnat: I'm upset by the shadow being cast ONLY over out eyes
Alahmnat: *our eyes, even
Nigouki: Whitechapel? isn't that where some serious murdering happened?
Rivulatus_: yup nigouki
evilspoons983: "urchin" should be on a Victorian-era-media drinking game
RandomTrivia: We could wait here a while and mews on our notes... lrrBEEJ
TehAmelie: Whitechapel is also just an actual place
Solipsody: @Nigouki The papers at the time thought it was pretty jolly murdering, actually.
Solipsody: The important thing is it's a poor neighborhood.
TehAmelie: i remember reading From Hell and then Freakangels and being confused at recognizing a lot of the buildings
Pteraspidomorphi: Hey
HorusFive: Go left
TheMerricat: INSULTED!@
Twilight_Spark: Are you going to play Chess 920?
Martizz1e: woah, haven't twitched in way too long, enjoy this free bezos sub, maybe it's a footlong, that's up to your imagination
Mysticman89: tell them they're muted
Xilats: OW! I was walking up the stairs, and the back of my suspenders shot off and smacked in the head!
Juliamon: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
Twilight_Spark: You should really play Chess 920, it's newer.
Mangledpixel: !findquote R1
LRRbot: Quote #2317: "That guy isn't actually that scary, you just stay behind him. You stay behind him and mash R1. Just like every other thing in these lrrEFF ing games. You just stay behind it and mash R1. And then you tell other people to git gud. That's how this game works. Stand behind it, mash R1, go to other people's chats, tell them to git gud. I think I've got it now." —Cameron [2016-04-13]
PixelArtDragon: Why didn't you go left?!
TehAmelie: it's Mister E's room
keymaster515: English street numbers don't go linearly like in the United States.
DeM0nFiRe: Heh is that quote about Havel the Rock?
GlennSeto: @keymaster515 Not at all or criss-cross?
TehAmelie: i think it's the asylum demon
Thisbymaster: you passed it?
djalternative: that looks a little too much like a punch card for a pub
DeM0nFiRe: Heh well I guessed the game right
Twilight_Spark: Lotta value judgement in that inference.
TehAmelie: Homer Simpson inner voice: paying bills before they are due saves money
Thisbymaster: I hear the kid, but I don't see him
EricTheOrange: So I've never played the games if Holmes doesn't take money for cases how does he afford his lavish apartment?
keymaster515: @GlennSeto Generally not at all. For example, a bunch of places has the number 1 in the middle of the street or wherever they are.
evilspoons983: whoop another Victorian drinking game trigger - mother died when young
TheMerricat: Anyone watch the Enola Holmes show on Netflix? was it any good?
noSmokeFire: watson would require them to render two characters
Solipsody: Watson needs a break sometimes.
Twilight_Spark: Look, Halloween was a couple days ago okay?
Mangledpixel: !findquote pumpkin
LRRbot: Quote #185: "F*ck you, pumpkin! Eat shit!" —Alex [2015-05-01]
TehAmelie: i did, it wasn't
BTC1220: I do love a good asspumpkin
djalternative: @EricTheOrange he takes money from people who can pay but he also does pro-bono work
Nigouki: well if we do get into trouble it's good to know it's all Watson's fault
PabstBlueFalcon: The T key
GlennSeto: @keymaster515 That's ... vile. But then, we have phone apps for navigation these days.
Involume: Holmes you bitch
DeM0nFiRe: In the US there's not much tenant rights so we don't usually have a Watson come with our homes
wildpeaks: when in doubt, tea solves everything
Thisbymaster: ah T, the button to pay attention
korvys: Oh, detective vision, like Batman
evilspoons983: caaandle
HorusFive: You're telling me that whole pumpkin in the sink isn't worth investigating, game?
Involume: It's just Holmes taking a massive opium hit
InkyGhoast: just got here, can someone give me the gist of anything thats happened
GlennSeto: @DeM0nFiRe And not well-off enough for a Mrs. Hudson? :P
Pteraspidomorphi: Tom has been eating pumpkin for three weeks
Juliamon: InkyGhoast A young street urchin's father has gone missing
DeM0nFiRe: Heh I dont actually know enough about sherlock to get that joke
InkyGhoast: thank you!
wildpeaks: because the broken crockery isn't a mystery, it's a tragedy
Mangledpixel: for those unaware: most of the Sherlock Holmes stories first appeared serialized in The Strand magazine
Involume: @inkyghoast Not much. This little boy has talked Sherlock into searching for his missing father
Thisbymaster: Holmes, can't use a latter
BTC1220: Firmly grasp it
evilspoons983: how did the candle light itself?
Pteraspidomorphi: Crimes!
RandomTrivia: Apparently there were some matches with it evilspoons983
HorusFive: Formal letter- completely unsigned
TehAmelie: Enola Holmes i think has more scenes about Enola flashing back to all her training with Mrs Holmes throughout her childhood than anything else
RandomTrivia: How we struck a match while holding on to the ladder I don't know
Nigouki: time to get to the pub and get wasted
fiftymcnasty: Nice new glasses!
GlennSeto: @Pteraspidomorphi My grandfather used to have that not with pumpkin, but with goose as a kid. Doesn't like the taste to this day.
HorusFive: Newsies
GlennSeto: Dickensian squalor?
margieargie: Or at least trying to be
TehAmelie: my english relatives say it's cockney
Solipsody: It's a form of received pronunciation they pick up from the Artful Dodger.
Prof_Poppinoff: cockney/south london
RandomTrivia: The East End urchin accent is distinct from a Cockney accent
JadedCynic: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 35:02.
HorusFive: I think it's supposed to be Cockney. To more or less effect
RandomTrivia: Cockney involves dropping of many consonants
Juliamon: Cockney by way of Americans trying to identify a Cockney accent
RandomTrivia: You still can, if they lived there for long enough
Invitare: London is a big city
Rivulatus_: every street has a different accent.
JadedCynic: Kensington, Cockney,
Invitare: a big *historic* city
theonlybm: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a deeper look at the world of video games. Game: Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter) at Tue 01:30 PM PST (36m ago).
Nigouki: lrrFRUMP
margieargie: lrrFRUMP
djalternative: lrrFRUMP lrrFRUMP lrrFRUMP
TehAmelie: be glad they are accents and not languages, i suppose
GlennSeto: "Proper" ...
SquareDotCube: lrrFRUMP
Invitare: lrrFRUMP
RandomTrivia: Greater London has been 30 miles across for decades and there are more accents across it than one might imagine
TehAmelie: (you know the difference between an accent and a language)
Juliamon: TehAmelie That's for later tonight Kappa
Prof_Poppinoff: they might as well be languages in some cases. although those folk like to claim they are dialects
RandomTrivia: Some of them are not just accents but local dialects
HorusFive: Proper work in this case involves tailing felons and reporting back to Holmes
GlennSeto: @TehAmelie Germany is big on dialects. That's a bit nastier still.
x0den: one of my favorite games is the sherlock mystery games where you play as wiggings.
Solipsody: Eavesdropping?
Makhiel: Listen with your eyes!
wildpeaks: subtle
JadedCynic: Cockney is a lot of 'contractions' and dropped initital/final consonants, plus a LOT of rhyming euphemisms
Mangledpixel: Wiggins is the spokesperson for the Baker Street Irregulars, a group of various street urchins who helped Holmes in a number of stories
Twilight_Spark: I like the idea of this oddly dressed man wandering into a pub and muttering to himself "There's nobody to eavesdrop on here."
JadedCynic: ah, pat the head and rub the tummy trick
TheMerricat: that doesn't look hard at all
Nigouki: oh boy, that's some gameplay
evilspoons983: this is just like eavesdropping IRL
Alahmnat: this seems miserable
TehAmelie: Cockney rhyming slang is a whole other beast, isn't it?
RandomTrivia: Rhyming Slang was/is a subsection of the Cockney dialect, from which the accent is the most often used feature in mediaa
Makhiel: this is evil
Alahmnat: worth it?
GlennSeto: What did Cam/Holmes just do?
Solipsody: So this minigame represents Holmes's incredibly short attention span.
JadedCynic: thanks; I hate it :P
Xilats: Ohhhh nooooo not this kind of challenge.
xerjen: Totally unsuspicious
evilspoons983: I suspect that's like 90% less shitty with a controller
TheMerricat: Should we be worried about the ... flys? swarming this booth?
Invitare: Comrade!
GlennSeto: @Solipsody I mean, he checks quite a few boxes for ADHD.
Prof_Poppinoff: bangers and mash > pie and mash
Mangledpixel: spam and mash
JadedCynic: Subtle in a way that we can only assume that everyone SEES us eavesdropping, but no one CARES :P
Nigouki: why are they all talking about the guy
wildpeaks: is it.. a cat
Twilight_Spark: D:
Alahmnat: we've narrowed it down to... half of London
BTC1220: Yes mm the nondescript 'special job'
HorusFive: Holmes, you are NOT working class here.
evilspoons983: dysentery! orphanage! double shots!
GlennSeto: God, that sneeze made me wince... what a year it has been.
Solipsody: @GlennSeto That was actually the only thing I liked about the Robert Downey Jr. version - they had a few bits that really leaned into that.
djalternative: I'm glad where in the universe where people will say the exact thing that's relevant exactly when you start looking at them
Involume: "Who's that wanker?" Fellow patrons, I assume
Twilight_Spark: lol Holmes wanders into a bar, just wanders around.
JadedCynic: have we dealt with the fact that Doyle would say that Holmes ONLY wore the deerstalker hat when travelling outside of London....
Alahmnat: this gameplay is... not... good...
Blue_Anteater: @Solipsody In Elementary, it's pretty much stated that he's on the spectrum in some capacity
wildpeaks: and the barman never asks what we want to drink
Despoiler98: WATER?!?!?!?!
Solipsody: Who could be suspicious of this clean-cut sportsman?
Involume: It's as good as the series gets. And I'm a fan!
TehAmelie: in pointless trivia, water is the only drink that's not a beverage
wildpeaks: to be fair, it's the tutorial and we picked the easier mode
Twilight_Spark: Oh yeah, I'm not super critical of the devs from a game standpoint.
Solipsody: @Blue_Anteater Haven't ever actually seen that one yet.
JadedCynic: "Roit, who tha hell is THIS toff? Ah, better not muck with him - might be a Royal for all I know."
GlennSeto: @Solipsody I prefer the Downey Jr. version to Cumberbatch, because he's not written as a complete sociopath who doesn't get people, but still magically deduces motives.
Blue_Anteater: @JadedCynic The deerstalker hat was from the illustrator, who liked wearing one. IN the stories, it was a simple cloth hat, and yes, only for outdoors adventures.
Mangledpixel: you were the one who dressed him ready for golf or something
JadedCynic: oho!
djalternative: especially since he can't show emotion because holmes being a person with emotions isn't part of the public domain
Twilight_Spark: Literally 2 steps behind him.
wildpeaks: *gasp* what a ruffian
Pteraspidomorphi: Why did George have to be told by leaflet about a pub on his street where according to his son he was a regular?
Blue_Anteater: @djalternative LUL
Juliamon: Pteraspidomorphi He knew about the pub but not the person with the special job
Solipsody: @GlennSeto For sure. As Involume observed, though, nobody beats Jeremy Brett. RDJ's kind of following in his footsteps, in fact, with the more physical version of Holmes.
Pteraspidomorphi: Everyone in the pub seems to know though
JadedCynic: and our man, doesn't want this looked into; what a Stressand Effect (before it ever becomes a thing ;) )
TheElrad: the t h I c c c plottens
quasi79fu subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 9 months, currently on a 6 month streak!
quasi79fu: yay????? SHerlock Holmes
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, quasi79fu! (Today's storm count: 45)
djalternative: or so says the lawsuit against enola holmn anyway
JadedCynic: canny use of the Irregulars
djalternative: oh wow. that notifier was double and also loud
JadedCynic: oh wait, that's US - okay, this is interesting
RandomTrivia: Holy loud sub notifier
Prof_Poppinoff: double loud notifier? double lucky
Juliamon: Paul has been alerted of the notifier issue
Blue_Anteater: @Solipsody It's good! Very much an AU, and more of just a good crime show that an adaptation, but there are plenty of easter eggs for fans.
Solipsody: Isn't the whole point of being Sherlock Holmes, and having irregulars, that you DON'T have to do this bit yourself?
DaxStrife: That drunk sounds like someone from a Mr. Weebl cartoon.
Drew_64: has any game ever pulled off a tailing minigame?
RandomTrivia: Why is the shady guy looking around for specifically the boy following him? Surely he doesn't know that the kid matters any?
JadedCynic: Normal Dude, Normal stroll
niccus: there should be a sherlock holmes game where you can pick which sherlock(-based) actor model you play with
Involume: During lockdown I have been rediscovering the Jeremy Brett Holmes series. It's all on youtube and it's all fantastic.
Solipsody: @Blue_Anteater I like Jonny Miller. I'll check out sometime.
RandomTrivia: I love that the boxes are labelled "cover"
Snowcookies: is this what stealth games are lrrBEEJ
wildpeaks: the tailing mission in Death of the Outsider was fun, although too short
JadedCynic: @niccus uh, there'd be SOOO much licensing involved with WOULD be wonderful tho
HorusFive: Also, how suspicious is seeing an urchin walking behind you vs seeing them take cover as you walk. Just fly casual
Prof_Poppinoff: well well well
Solipsody: Also, aren't you a generic urchin? Wouldn't this guy, like the rest of society, totally ignore you?
Despoiler98: oh no the Po Po
JadedCynic: parkour sim in 3...2...
InkyGhoast: we ass creed now
RandomTrivia: Dammit Cori I was just typing that!

niccus: the game should let you combat roll
Prof_Poppinoff: must have been the wind
Despoiler98: just my imagination
JadedCynic: I mean these streets aren't exactly teeming with people...
JadedCynic: go through the pub
Despoiler98: YA THINK?

DaxStrife: Black Lung Simulator 2020
Prof_Poppinoff: sings *too many mechanics*
Involume: I got the Black Lung, pa!
JadedCynic: yeah, here's the rub - the clients often didn't really care about DOUSING THE FIRES while sweeping was going on
naThanathos: Is sherlock the chimney sweep?
Twilight_Spark: Trying to escape from your life in late stage capitalist dystopia? Here we have a minigame simulating EARLY stage capitalist dystopia!
niccus: well yes the kid is going to die from this, but it's a long term case
Snowcookies: I can't believe we have to clean chimneys while chasing a man
TehAmelie: we still have one lung left
quasi79fu: How big is this chimney?
Despoiler98: and THAT is how he got lung cancer
JadedCynic: add to which this might even just be sheer asphyxiation and pass out in the chimney
RandomTrivia: Do we need to Assassin's Creed harder?
Pteraspidomorphi: Mind powers!
InkyGhoast: it's the tutorial so ever forward
margieargie: With the power of your mind, apparently
Solipsody: It's okay, Holmes will give him tupence for all this later, so it's all worth it.
norivia: psychic powers
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu small enough that yes, children were used for this
Despoiler98: ok seriously was victorian London actually covered in all this scaffolding? Cause I've never seen this in the pictures
Prof_Poppinoff: pat your belly and rub your head
Foxmar320: omg that looks miserable
ContingentCat: !ing
Pteraspidomorphi: Holmes must pay really well
quasi79fu: and sooo he feellll to his death and was not heard from again
TheMerricat: definately meant for controllers.
Snowcookies: ning
captain_potato_pc: wow this child is REALLY ready to die for this job
RandomTrivia: This kid's balance isn't very good, that beam is plenty wide enough
bakerydragon: oh wow
JadedCynic: okay, I guess we're not a Descendent of Ezio here LUL
tergonis: nobody look up!
norivia: remember, if you fall, loosen up and you'll bounce
TehAmelie: i'm starting to think a twins stick controller would be good for this twin stick stuff
Prof_Poppinoff: lol
Solipsody: They really didn't have a lot of faith in the detective bits to hold your interest, did they?
BTC1220: How many children have died under Holmes' orders???
TheAwkes: This balance minigame looks pretty good?
x0den: holmes pays in exposure.... to danger
JadedCynic: @captain_potato_pc hey, he wants to eat, right?
Mysticman89: t pose for dominence, not for balance
GlennSeto: I'm glad you're staying on brand.
quasi79fu: why is this kid not in the circus?
HorusFive: Good thing Victorian healthcare was so good for street children
djalternative: if 8 stories is survivable then 2 stories is
Involume: Man these kids work hard for a shilling
DaxStrife: Wasn't this supposed to be a mystery game with Sherlock Holmes?
CAKHost: I didn't know investigation work was so dangerous!
JadedCynic: heck, maybe in his past, Holmes might have saved this lad's life?
GlennSeto: Why is this kid so willing to kill himself for Sherlock Holmes?
Foxmar320: wat
PixelArtDragon: Wait, these are almost exactly the same rooftops as the ones in Dishonored!
Solipsody: So, does Wiggins have a blade implanted in his hand so he can drop on this guy for a stealth kill, or...?
captain_potato_pc: @JadedCynic well so I guess it would be drath either way *shrug*
OldManJohnsonMB: "anything is better than selling newspapers"

JadedCynic: you can tell becaise the paint is all worn from all the people going over ;)
norivia: take 'em and wake 'em and shake 'em all over
GlennSeto: I see birdshit is a universal signifier of climbable surfaces.
quasi79fu: Does Sherlock pay the kid enough to do this??? I would ask for a raise
Talin06: so why are we a kid doing this and not homes?
virre_: I only remember the verse about putting him in the bed with the captains daugther from the campfire sing-alongs in scouts
JadedCynic: @Despoiler98 more like a shilling - food for a week
gwentara: "Shave his belly with a rusty razor! eaaarly in the morning!"
BTC1220: no crouch. only cutscene.
NavelWarfare: Evening team! What do we think of the game so far?
Involume: Holmes is too busy doping up
Mysticman89: good secret
GlennSeto: Look that kid is gonna earn 4 shillings and that money will put him through college.
JadedCynic: yay minigames!
TehAmelie: the verses suggest: put him in the longboat till he's sober, put him in the bed with the captain's daughter and other random things. you're never quite sure if they want to help the drunken sailor or hurt him
Alahmnat: shoe shining minigame
OldManJohnsonMB: Very convenient he needed a shoe shine
Despoiler98: OMG shoe shine simulator 2020
RandomTrivia: Wipe with cloth first, then brush
RandomTrivia: Have neither of you ever brushed a shoe before?
Solipsody: WHY?
JadedCynic: yep, apply polish with small yep, and finally chamois
RandomTrivia: It was in the 1800s!
Dashiell: One (1) shiny shoe
Despoiler98: yay money
JadedCynic: you don't POLISH your shoes
readyforperfect: so was that just so he could get a little side hustle mid-chase?
niccus: what was that for
JadedCynic: (which we will give to our friend who leant us the kit)
Prof_Poppinoff: the two brushes and tin of polish is all you need
OldManJohnsonMB: "Come back! I need to do the other shoe!"
quasi79fu: Omg they can smell Poverty????
Solipsody: You should have been able to smear polish on the soles of his shoes so he'd be easier to follow.
TehAmelie: i so want someone to mod Ron Swanson into this as a shoeshine customer
JadedCynic: those are ratting dogs, they wouldn't be kept as 'sentries' or similar
quasi79fu: wheres Harry Potter?
Snowcookies: not good doggos
djalternative: *translator note: poverty smells like snausages
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu on platform 9-3/4

RandomTrivia: I'm surprised that wasn't a QTE out of nowhere
Blade_Tiger: This is giving me flashbacks to Assassin Creed 3's horrible eavesdrop segments
GlennSeto: So what I'm getting here, is that Cam would not have survived on the streets of industrialization London.
DaxStrife: This kid is shockingly dedicated to this job.
TehAmelie: that was a whole minigame just to replicate that one scene in Les Mis huh
GhostValv: london potholes amirite gamers :)
Pteraspidomorphi: To be fair he probably thought it was a pothole
JadedCynic: @RandomTrivia ...what do you mean it was NOT? :D
TehAmelie: that one shot, even. where Gavroche jumps onto the back of that carriage
RandomTrivia: @JadedCynic I meant the actual jump
JadedCynic: yay, for poor upkeep
Despoiler98: who leaves that big a hole in your estates wall?
Snowcookies: how convienient
Alahmnat: the sky seems super blue for industrial-era London...
quasi79fu: That man has Guns
RandomTrivia: Ah yes, even back in the late 19th century we alreadu jad automatic doors in England
TehAmelie: today on McMansionhell
OldManJohnsonMB: If your wall can't keep up urchins, why bother with a wall at all?
JadedCynic: nah, shanghai'd back then meant going on a Royal East India Company ship to....well, Shanghai
Solipsody: I'm really glad you guys are plaing Wiggins: The Devil's Daughter today. I was afraid it would be some dumb game about a genius detective instead.

Prof_Poppinoff: Alahmnat yeah this almost feels european in setting, too nice for london
RandomTrivia: Window must be covered in handprints
quasi79fu: he doesnt have his x ray glassses to see through the wallls
GlennSeto: He'll come back in 15 years, a decorated veteran, still haunted by the sounds of the jungle.
tergonis: windows too dirty, gotta clean em and get more black lung points
Involume: Look at all of those Chekhov's guns.
quasi79fu: Poe Tay Tooooes
JadedCynic: the Navy would just set up a couple of brightly-dressed marines with a petty officer handing out The King's Shilling (don't have to kidnap when you can bribe 'em and they come running to YOU :)
TehAmelie: alternate punchline: "only two people live here? i could move in and they'd never notice me"
GlennSeto: Smart boy.
readyforperfect: what no drawing minigame?
quasi79fu: where did he have a pecil and piece of paper stashed?
Alahmnat: I'm amazed there wasnt a "draw the crest" minigame

jessieimproved: transfer fluids
RechargeableFrenchman: Muldoon-house!
Despoiler98: Stretch WHILE Relieving your self
margieargie: Drink a glass of water, or beer, depending on whether you're the suspect or not
Prof_Poppinoff: Despoiler98 the best feeling
JadedCynic: streamer & game seem quiet - had to max stream-client volume and then turn up my headphones...and yeah, that sub-notifier is LOUD as a result :P
Involume: In the spirit of Sherlock Holmes, I'm going to be strung out on the couch doing morphine.
Solipsody: I should actually go make supper. Catch you on the VOD. Don't tell me who did it, I want to see Wiggins catch the guy.
TheRealRedal: Ahh that old classic
Juliamon: The volume issue has been ongoing, we've told Paul about it but there's not much else that can be done
JadedCynic: where's my laudanum?
GlennSeto: Not sure if we're all getting the same ads, but here's your periodic reminder, that Ubisoft is a poorly drained warren of abuse.
quasi79fu: may i ask wtf does poorly drained warren mean?
Mysticman89: ah, ok so it's some actual issue instead of just a easy knob to be dialed. not ear melting anyway so no biggie
Juliamon: quasi79fu a flooded den
quasi79fu: tanks
Juliamon: with stagnant water
quasi79fu: delicious
JadedCynic: @quasi79fu with no context; I'm assuming a 'warren' in this case is the noun - animal den (often rabbits)
Mysticman89: also people are probably not getting all the the same ads, they tend to be vaguely regionalised
Involume: Sub notifier almost woke my baby up
quasi79fu: Dance magic dance ...jump magic jump
TehAmelie: i think "most" of chat is subbed too. no ads for me
GlennSeto: Sorry, I suppose "gutter" would have worked better.
quasi79fu: oooh I know about gutters
quasi79fu: wait that sounded wrong
jessieimproved: LRR chat is overwhelmingly subbed, compared to other chats that I've seen
TehAmelie: "I'm not Julia Roberts, I'm no VIP, not even an IP. just a lonely P sitting in the gutter"
Juliamon: The overall implication is that ubisoft is gross and terrible anyway

Juliamon: That loaf is dried the heck out now
PixelArtDragon: It's the sliced thing since best bread!
jessieimproved: I *could* also eat that much toast
CAKHost: Please tell me there was a dog.
RandomTrivia: Probably just blank toast and there wil be a preserve of some kind
jessieimproved: if you're lucky, some jam
GlennSeto: I have had more toast during breakfast as a kid.

RandomTrivia: This girl has read too many light novels
wildpeaks: it will be explained
TehAmelie: that child looks like it's on baby drops
GlennSeto: Did Holmes father a child in one of the previous games?
RandomTrivia: That's not ominous at all, Mrs Hudson...
tapdancingbeavers: adopted child I am guessing?
Involume: If I remember, making deductions is a fun part of this game
Despoiler98: perfect
GlennSeto: Monsignor!
wildpeaks: incognito
TehAmelie: would a pastor have a beard?
TheMerricat: FYI chat, that is Katelyn Holmes (Katelyn Moriarty) whom Holmes adopted in a previous game after Moriarty requested he take care of her after his death.
GlennSeto: No beard?
RandomTrivia: As we know, preacher's outfits are timeless. Pastor present, they are recognisable lrrBEEJ
HungryCavalier: The daughter's backstory was in an earlier game (Testament of SH)
OldManJohnsonMB: No collar and beard?
GlennSeto: @TheMerricat Did Moriarty at least have the decency to die for real after that?
DaxStrife: Given the time period of this, I'm surprised Holmes doesn't have a "racist Chinese stereotype" disguise.
TehAmelie: ah, Holmes and Moriarty, the original Kismesis relationship
TheMerricat: @GlennSeto the game claimed so but you know how supervillains are...
Juliamon: DaxStrife Or maybe the devs wanted to avoid that deliberately?
Despoiler98: Moriarty had a KID????
GlennSeto: @TehAmelie Elementary did that really well.
Involume: Well I guess Holmes is a FATHER.
GlennSeto: @TheMerricat He is THE original supervillain.
quasi79fu: I dont trust this guy
RandomTrivia: Ah, a Bond-style disguise, where you use your real name
TehAmelie: man of wealth with terribly dirty nails

Mysticman89: I mean yes, but usually it's not a manual process
Zhedor: Isn't that the plot of Foucault's Pendulum?
TehAmelie: seems a bit permanent
Zhedor: Sorry :D

niccus: this is why sherlock was so smart, all the streets
Earthenone: im lost please help
Involume: Wiggins!!
siltyroach: Queue that video of newlock being hit by a car over and over after doing his mind map thing

siltyroach: Indeed we've checked the same deadend a couple times now
HungryCavalier: What does your task list say?

Mysticman89: if tobi doesn't make rent then oh boy theres going to be trouble

How_Do_I_Shoot: why would sherlock holmes need to look that up? isnt he supposed to have an eidedict memory
InquisitorGaia: did you know that if you have your headphones plugged into your phone they wont play the audio from your computer
The_Voices: pocket dog!
ArkhamArchivist: HoboHolmes
siltyroach: Dont put your dog in a bag of holding
RandomTrivia: @How_Do_I_Shoot Maybe he hasn't read that one before?
snowmonkey99: Why is Jon Hamm solving crimes wearing *that* hat?
wildpeaks: nonsense, we have nothing better to do than walk our good doggo
TehAmelie: Holmes probably has most of the same skills Harry does. well, except for all the Psyche ones
InkyGhoast: no we have to go to hurts's house
TheMerricat: not marsh's house, hursts house
siltyroach: makes for a sad DM reminding you theres no oxygen in there
How_Do_I_Shoot: combine do with rag
InkyGhoast: WATSON wants to go to Marshall's house
TheMerricat: you are using toby to find the scent of the oil
InkyGhoast: we can only bring one sidekick at a time apparnelty

DaxStrife: I've seen dogs open doors with their heads before, but not like that.
The_Voices: welp
ButButTheJesus: lrrFINE
TheMerricat: Toby is a monster......
SplittingImage77: Reminds me of the opening sequence of Downton Abbey with the doggos bum showing
siltyroach: LUL
wildpeaks: don't even worry about it :D
ButButTheJesus: we're not tripping over our ears nearly enough
AWildTransgirlAppeared: Ghost dog ghost dog
How_Do_I_Shoot: my experiance of bassets is that they usually stop for a biscuit right about now
Xilats: Toby: Psychic Investigator.
wildpeaks: doggo > gravity
TehAmelie: well, look at that tail going at least

TheMerricat: look chat, red herring house had a purpose!
Mysticman89: itt might be problematic if you're not quick enough
TheSinisterCheese: The wonders of breeding dogs... Could we stop making the even more sick?
ArkhamArchivist: How many breeds of dogs have humans over-engineered to the point of uselessness?
RandomTrivia: *B O R K*
Silver_Kn1ght: ArkhamArchivist too many
Nigouki: now I kinda want to watch some Mamoru Oshii movies cuz they always have a basset hound in them
TehAmelie: it depends. no dogs fill any function to the biosphere
siltyroach: B O R K
Angnor33: Ah, genetic engineering.
readyforperfect: we made the wolf friend shaped
TheBehemothBarn: Yeah a supper sniffer
TheSinisterCheese: @ArkhamArchivist Other than working breeds which are still used for work, all of them. Look at old working dog breeds from 100 years ago, they were way healthier and good looking.
wildpeaks: because they wanted scritches behind the ears
Juliamon: It turns out Moon Moon was onto something
Zhedor: It's nothing compared to what we did to ourselves. And we were also apex predators ;)
TheBehemothBarn: super*
The_Voices: dont forget the tiny demons called pugs and chiwowoas(sorry, cant spell it)
siltyroach: Dont you find the way it can barely breathe cute tho?
Lithobraker: Normally the mother has to lick the puppies to stimulate breathing after birth
Xilats: @Zhedor I am still an apex predator! I can do a triple centurion of nuggies.
Lithobraker: In wolves
InquisitorGaia: what is this a mineshaft in the middle of a city?
How_Do_I_Shoot: he seems a cabable dog
Nigouki: time for drums in the deep?
siltyroach: He'll use his ancestors wisdom
RandomTrivia: @InquisitorGaia Clearly it's a half-arsed basement extension
Alahmnat: depends on the accent
TheSinisterCheese: @siltyroach A mate of mine has a pug, according to them it is the most adorable thing when it sniffles, snores, and is constantly out of breath. And how it is cute how it sleep in strange position so it can breathe.
AWildTransgirlAppeared: We're suddenly in a Skyrim dungeon
ButButTheJesus: stowage is what bwings us here togethah, today
TheMerricat: So chat, I recently learned that apparently all the dogs in the world are from one small family of domesticated wolves as opposed to many separate lines of wolves being domesticated in different areas.
GlennSeto: Oh, isn't this where the Amnesia monster shows up?
RandomTrivia: @ButButTheJesus A+ reference there, well played.
Xilats: What a helpful lock latch!
Lithobraker: @TheMerricat let me guess, you read arstechnica
siltyroach: @TheSinisterCheese Oh god. I was being sarcastic that is sad.
TheMerricat: @Lithobraker ^_^
Applecrisp: cam's new glasses look nice
How_Do_I_Shoot: thew worlds easiest lock
HungryCavalier: Well, that was challenging
RandomTrivia: Gameplay!
Mysticman89: master lockpick
Xilats: Now, if we had brought Toby, we wouldn't have needed to use the picklocks.
InquisitorGaia: that was the most remarkable lock, and nothing like how lockpicking works at all
Alahmnat: the outer shadow on the handwriting is *killing* me
wildpeaks: Toby moonlights as a master thief
wildpeaks: nobody suspect the daborable doggo
siltyroach: Has there ever been a good lockpicking minigame? that represents atually pins and all
Pal_Friendpatine: I love that this game, deducing, mystery, intelligence, is making for a very quizzical looking Cam. It seems not only does he have to figure out the mystery but also has to figure out the game.
TheMerricat: I like that the lock was a true ward lock vs a tumbler lock
TehAmelie: i think it was around New England they've found a new species of mixed coyote, dog and wolf. seems benign, though the concept sounds pretty Frankenstein
TheSinisterCheese: @siltyroach That is a fact of life to many pugs. Hell some of them undergo surgeries to make them breathe better. The dogs like bassets with lots of excess skin often get infections unless the are constantly cleaned well. It is SO sad what we do to dogs. And I honestly with my government, and every government, would take actions and ban those breeding guidelines and descriptions.,
RandomTrivia: Oh great, now we have to tell the kid his dad is dead
InkyGhoast: we have a brain connect
Lithobraker: @siltyroach I've been waiting for a new lockpick mini game that uses the improved haptic feedback of modern controllers
siltyroach: @TheSinisterCheese I guess banning breeding is all we could do for them wich is incredibly sad indeed
Critterbot: Cartridges.
siltyroach: a whole rifle
ulexarX: Imagination: Activated
TheSinisterCheese: @siltyroach my government, in Finland, has actually had some attempts at this. But there isn't enough political will and the breeders put up a massive fight. Hell... Add a massive tax to breed dogs that aren't used as working dogs or something if you can't outright ban it.
gamercat88: is this our mind palace?
Robot_Bones: At last, a mind palace view
siltyroach: Its a bit under furnished
Robot_Bones: Same Hat
HouseThomas: I loved this game! I’m glad you are playing!! ❤️
SquareDotCube: Special job and paupers list?
TheElrad: try the rest of the clues?
ContingentCat: whoops romance isn't great
Lord_ZYRK: "I was trying to call you an idiot, but I guess now I want to smooch???"
Involume: "Oops, I'm dating a space racist"
TheSinisterCheese: What you don't think the "What do you mean?" isn't a clear enough of a clue that if you choose it you end up throwing a cream pie on the talkers face?
Lord_ZYRK: seabatBRAIN
Sky_Kast: hiya
Sky_Kast: well rip perfect timing Kappa
Involume: You CAN be wrong about your final deduction, which is cool
Gadora: I quit Mass Effect because I was trying to do an RP run. Right after the first reaper encounter, there was a point where I tried to say "I stand by my report" as a polite way to address a superior who expressed doubt. Instead it was more "Are you calling me a liar?"
Involume: RP run?
Gadora: Roleplaying.
Blue_Anteater: @Gadora I just finished the first one, and while I liked the game overall, I did hate that mechanic
Involume: Ah
Juliamon: Making choices that align with how you've been playing the character
Gadora: Had a pre-existing character I was trying to bring in to adapt.
Involume: Gotchya
wynternyghtynggale: hi everyone
Revelia: Problem with RP mass effect is you're playing Shepard, who has a character, that you are choosing which flavor of Shepard's existing character you prefer
quasi79fu: aww man I missed stream
readyforperfect: naw we're just on break
RandomTrivia: Only on break. Weren't you here earlier quasi79fu?
Involume: So what was the decision to play this game? Did I miss something at the start?
corianderd: I suggested it at the end of last stream and Cameron agreed to play it :D
quasi79fu: I had to deal with a new player and setting them up for my rolepplaying campaign on saturdays
corianderd: for my amusement
Involume: Noice
quasi79fu: I might have missed some things
Involume: I'm actually a bit of a fan of the series
Blue_Anteater: @Revelia And that's fair, but there's a moment where you're talking to Joker, and the message is like, Where did you get your training?, but what Shepard SAYS is, Are you sure you're capable of flying this ship? So, it's a little misleading
TehAmelie: you have to rewrite some stuff in your head to make it fit with the character you want to play
TehAmelie: at least i did
pletcho: is it kosher to swear in this channel
quasi79fu: Burglars!!!!!
estrogently: lets blur gary
gamercat88: but toby
Blue_Anteater: @TehAmelie Yeah, I'll probably be doing that as I go into the second game XD
wynternyghtynggale: burgler boys!
Revelia: @Blue_Anteater yeah that's definitely a problem. Fallout 4 had a similar problem
RandomTrivia: That was a very Martin Freeman Watson reaction
quasi79fu: Im sorry...But is no one going to notice a grown man sneaking around a house?
Alahmnat: they did a good job with Watson's "I'm so sick of your shit, Holmes" response
Involume: Sneaky vicar!
PixelArtDragon: "We made a cool place to sneak around, so you're going to have to sneak around it at LEAST twice"
quasi79fu: Omg what
itira: LOL
RandomTrivia: lrrWOW

Austere_Squire: Hullo, all
Ferisar: the evidence burglar
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's only a federal crime if you read it *before* it's recieved. After that it's just snooping
gualdhar: this is definitely not American Healthcare
RandomTrivia: Engage stealth mode!
Ferisar: that's such a gentle end-screen
Ferisar: "oh but why on earth are you here?"
quasi79fu: How is that a hiding spot
Nigouki: I wish we had Ophelia's stealth
RandomTrivia: Should have studied Ophelia more closely
quasi79fu: tick tick tick
ContingentCat: jlrrTick

Despoiler98: I like that mechanic actually
Robot_Bones: snape snape severus snape

Gadora: I appreciate they gave visual feedback, not just auditory.
RandomTrivia: @Robot_Bones That is an old but excellent reference.
wynternyghtynggale: oh they gave us a map how nice!
TheWooglie: You might get this a lot, but Heat Death was great lrrHEART lrrAWESOME
Austere_Squire: it's unfair how thoroughly pleasant everyone at LRR is

DrSoupPHD: Taste test
InkyGhoast: how ya doin cam
quasi79fu: I almost heard him say he needed a Poppet
Mysticman89: why do we have pipette bulbs? all the cool kids just upsuck from the top with their mouths
RandomTrivia: G A M E P L A Y
Alahmnat: poit
quasi79fu: Its a fuzzy snow field
Alahmnat: I thought we left the hidden object games behind
Revelia: when we say "gameplay" like that do we mean to say that it's contrived, forced, or otherwise "bad" gameplay?
quasi79fu: Isnt Tuberclosis like contagious?
Nigouki: ah yes, the cure-all sanatoriums of the time
margieargie: He'll probably die if he -is- transferred to a sanatorium anyway, but...
josh___something: Why does watson look like a hipster?
InkyGhoast: is the commitment with a quarantine
Alahmnat: we do?
KV1NN4: or: Why do hipsters look like Watson?
readyforperfect: it's going dracula is my new answer to how things are going
Zaraka00: its going totally dracula BD
quasi79fu: uhhh the daughter scares me....Shes into Dracula...Next thing you know she will find out about Twilight Series
Alahmnat: why is the game in 1st person now?
TehAmelie: tuberculosis, or tuber-oculosis, an affliction caused by eating raw potato eyes
TehAmelie: either peel or cook your potatoes, people
RandomTrivia: I would apologise but I feel it's important to recognise a Watch&Play moment when it happens
quasi79fu: Witchcraffft
wynternyghtynggale: itsnt it so nice it was on the first page
quasi79fu: Oh noooo death
wynternyghtynggale: send him to the sanatorium and you wont have to see him die, he just dies off screen!
RandomTrivia: Gary Youngman?
InkyGhoast: ooh we should bring toby
TehAmelie: and it probably features an accidentally authentic wedding scene
RandomTrivia: You don't need to do any more, we know what you're getting at
PhoenixShaman: map in the secret bunker?
SquareDotCube: "Dear diary, today I discovered I want to be a goth girl"
Alahmnat: no really, it's bugging me that the game is suddenly in 1st person now
TehAmelie: the already poor character animation b budget must have run out
BusTed: Not creepy at all.
RandomTrivia: Seems fine
quasi79fu: walk? carriage?

Involume: It's next to the door
InkyGhoast: why doesn't game just teleport us ugh
margieargie: There is, of course, no other map of Epping Forest in the entire country.
SquareDotCube: duduce so you can get there?
Simonark: John Hamm, Boy Detective
TehAmelie: i think cab rides are actually the loading screens
x0den: im assuming you've tried clicking on the words "search the map" on that menu?
RandomTrivia: Cab rides are absolutely concealing loading screens
Simonark: @TehAmelie I'd feel confident betting money on that.
TehAmelie: options menu said something about it
SquareDotCube: Where's the epping forest?
readyforperfect: i especially don't mind the cab rides when toby comes along in his lil car seat
RandomTrivia: @SquareDotCube North-East of London. Today it's within the boundaries of Greater London

Daggothur: alex would have a kick out of this lol
DeM0nFiRe: Sir Pentine
Kiwijelly: Aw, from the title I was hoping for a janky hidden object game
TheBehemothBarn: Adrenaline is one hell of a drug
RandomTrivia: As I said right at the beginning, surely the Predestination Paradox means that none of our decisions really mattered?
Juliamon: Kiwijelly Sometimes it is
TehAmelie: i'll buy that Holmes just has a keen sense of where he's aiming
RandomTrivia: The beam does seem to track the area around his heart
Alahmnat: of all the weirdly modern things in this game, I'm actually okay with the game giving you an affordance for when/where they're aiming at you
Despoiler98: Ya know those Victorian laser sights
Mister_BlueSky: Hold out for those Epic bushes, dog.
readyforperfect: so they're doing their most dangerous game straight up in the middle of london?
Nigouki: can we put on the other body's skin like a disguise?
RandomTrivia: This is not the middle of London. This is Epping Forest, comfortably away from anyone who might overhear
DeM0nFiRe: Run Holmes, Run Home
readyforperfect: thanks @RandomTrivia
Kiwijelly: Because I have information to share on that subject, whereas janky 3d murder mystery shooters are outside my sphere of knowledge
Critterbot: Martini Hemry's are rather large bore.
josh___something: Oh, as in a rock slide
quasi79fu: head went brrrr
RandomTrivia: Could someone please please quote "Maybe if you had more holes in your lungs, you'd be getting more oxygen"?
Ferisar: new activity: rocksliding

TehAmelie: !card rock sled
LRRbot: Goblin Rock Sled [1R] | Creature — Goblin [3/1] | Trample / Goblin Rock Sled doesn't untap during your untap step if it attacked during your last turn. / Goblin Rock Sled can't attack unless defending player controls a Mountain.
Kiwijelly: why this font?
Simonark: Yeah, Epping Forest is huge and very old growth.
Alahmnat: why anything this game has done, @Kiwijelly
Ferisar: the smell of the swamp will protect you
InkyGhoast: i think the logic is also that the swamp will cover our smell from the dogs
quasi79fu: LOL smell of the swamp....Donkey get outta ma swamp
TehAmelie: you're a big stone, that means you have big cover
Alahmnat: it's to hide your scent from the dogs
Nigouki: need to wash our wound with swamp water
Ferisar: big stank

Kiwijelly: It was then I started to suspect that this particular route might have been a mistake
RandomTrivia: Luckily we're being pursued by a stormtrooper!
Despoiler98: actually *pushes up glasses* water is fantastic cover from bulletls as little as one foot of water can deflect and slow down a bullet to less than lethal velocity
shinycrochet: swamp water, perfect for wounds
captain_potato_pc: luckily we can just hide in the swamp
quasi79fu: isnt there a path to the house right in front of that massive boulder
RandomTrivia: Even the bullets aren't finding our body

Despoiler98: @tabbyphobos no NINJAS did that, DUH
Ferisar: isn't this where you came from?
Alahmnat: and now they're suddenly so very far away
Ferisar: or am i confused
RandomTrivia: WHAT TRACKS?! We're in a SWAMP!
Kiwijelly: @tabbyphobos pretty sure that was Robin Hood
TehAmelie: i guess we left a trail of blood
InkyGhoast: so when does the game just ask us if we want it to do it for us
ieva_art: when was this game even made??
Alahmnat: I am *astonished* they didn't force you to minigame that
Despoiler98: he is injuring SO MANY of his internal organs right now jumping and running like this
TehAmelie: NOW your health is deteriorating?
Kiwijelly: it should have been
Critterbot: He's being so matter of fact about it. xD
Vulfe: quick, put pants on the wound so it doesn't feel vulnerable
Despoiler98: just rub dirt and leaves in the wounds
jessieimproved: looks cozy
RandomTrivia: Thank you Cameron for correctly pronouncing "herb" given the setting
Ferisar: amnesia: the holmes descent
Kiwijelly: what is he wearing?

SquareDotCube: I *know* they exist.
BlueMagnusStormCrow: The running away from the shooter bit looked very unfun.
ieva_art: yeah subscription sound is v loud...
Revelia: there was a skip option for that part
wynternyghtynggale: the animation on the fleeing actually made me feel ill
jessieimproved: I'm late on the math, but I think you need at least 50 total people to have 76% of anything
ieva_art: just make it a visual novel lol
RaemonDamon: If you have a skip option for your puzzle minigame, I personally feel like it might not be a good minigame
x0den: i think they need to be more visual novel and less point and click
Kiwijelly: hidden object games
Zaraka00: wait did I get up and miss the part that bridges from arriving at epping forest to being chased?
Alahmnat: yeah, Holmes being super-duper smart makes it *really* hard for the "everyday person" to step into his role with any degree of competence.
Enmity777: I partially agree, but this game is also the worst of the series imo.
TehAmelie: a game where you have to become interesting enough to summon Sherlock Holmes to help you
x0den: I like the sherlock holms consulting detective games where you play as wiggins and compare yourself to holmes rather than just being holmes
RandomTrivia: Dog section best section
TehAmelie: like the One Punch Man game but sillier
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: They could pause and have you research "knowledge" in a mini-game... equivalent to him doing "lookup/indexing" in his head. :) It would suck,.
Ferisar: to be fair to holmes his omniscience has been slowly increased over the character's lifespan and passing hands
Alahmnat: @MyClosePersonalFriendJohn sounds like Carmen Sandiego games when they came with a legit almanac to cross-reference against.
Ferisar: he used to be just a very smart dude who liked cocaine
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: @Alahmnat Ya... only this would be basically wikipedia lookups. :D
TehAmelie: he doesn't know everything, just everything relevant to his cases. . .
Kiwijelly: speaking of hidden object games, have you guys played the first Cadenza game?
TehAmelie: hey, i like this Neil Gaiman story
Kiwijelly: stabbed
RandomTrivia: We let the vigilante do his thing
Kiwijelly: eh
Kiwijelly: it was the best option we were given

Kiwijelly: I mean, you could do Ace Attorney style, where the cases are so silly only you can solve them
TehAmelie: i'd like a game where you are not any kind of detective but you're forced into a ridiculously unsolvable mystery on the level of the opening scene in the Dirk Gently show, and the game is about getting the attention of Sherlock Holmes so he can figure it out for you
Kiwijelly: oh, I have a pitch
Kiwijelly: Sherlock Holmes is supposed to solve a mystery but breaks his leg, so you have to do all the clue finding and pitch him your solutions
TehAmelie: heh
Kiwijelly: for the last arc you figure out that the baddies are planning to kidnap/target him and have to follow clues he left to find him
Kiwijelly: using the skills you've built
Blue_Anteater: Honestly, that's kind of a combination of multiple Sherlock stories, which I think actually works
Blue_Anteater: I'd play!
Kiwijelly: we'll call it...
Kiwijelly: Sherlock Holmes and the Art of Delegation
TehAmelie: Stephen King did that sort of, in a story where Holmes gets disabled due to his canonical severe cat allergy and Watson solves the case
Blue_Anteater: @Kiwijelly katesNice
Kiwijelly: honestly, it would have to be on scene or the solution would just be 'call mycroft'
TehAmelie: but at what cost?
Blue_Anteater: Would you play as Watson or a new character?
Kiwijelly: actually, this should just be a Nero Wolfe game
Kiwijelly: because that is the plot of every Nero Wolfe story
Kiwijelly: except replace 'broken leg' with 'can't be bothered'
Kiwijelly: i listen to a lot of Old Time Radio
Blue_Anteater: Have you ever heard of a podcast called the Thrilling Adventure Hour?
Kiwijelly: I believe so
Blue_Anteater: It's a narrative podcast done in the style of Old Time Radio
Blue_Anteater: It was performed live on stage for about a decade, and they turned each segment into podcast episodes. There was space Western, supernatural mystery, etc. It's fun!
Juliamon: is most of it still locked behind Patreon though?
Juliamon: I remember they basically cleared the feed after the live shows ended
Blue_Anteater: Oh yeah, it might be...
killerpommes: maybe one of those games where you are a newbie and Holmes is your mentor. And sometimes he helps you out with investigating your clues
Blue_Anteater: I think the feed still has a few up, like the favorites are whatever
Blue_Anteater: *or
Juliamon: I've not kept up with them, since the Treasury feeds kept changing on me
