gnome_friend: I love how clear Graham was on this week's Checkpoint
beowuuf: (soon)
TheMerricat: Evening chat, I'm told that there might be snow where I live today. I've been told that there might be snow where I live the past four days. There is no snow as of yet. I'm both happy and frustrated.
beowuuf: same with me over the last month or more!
Snowcookies: Yay snow
beowuuf: without the frustration :p
DeM0nFiRe: The weather here has been dry but of course the one day and the one time of that day that I need to go out, there's supposed to be heavy rain
TheMerricat: I'm not frustrated so much that there is no snow as I am that I try to be a considerate hermit and not order shit to be delivered in the middle of storms and when the ground isn't fun to walk on. Of course I know the day I break down and order the shit I've been holding off getting, they'll be scheduled for delivery on the one day that we actually have a snow storm.
GapFiller: !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 PST (4m from now).
beowuuf: yup :(
GapFiller: feelin better abt my package of Neu Years Sale stuff which came today
gnome_friend: !smash
LRRbot: Put Avenir Call in Smash, you cowards!
gnome_friend: Was that Avenir's last name?
Juliamon: Guess so?
Metric_Furlong: lrrbot seems to think so, anyway
gnome_friend: I'm not seeing last names for the characters in the By Law and Order videos...
Snowcookies: Whoever put that in seems to think so
TheMerricat: Avenir is a font face?
Metric_Furlong: and both they and lrrbot have the power to ban people, so do you really want to tell them they're wrong? Kappa
Snowcookies: yes
Snowcookies: <message deleted>I tell mods they're wrong all the time
TheMerricat: lol
gnome_friend: Everyone is wrong sometimes
Snowcookies: Like the one who thinks it is the summer of our lrr-content
Snowcookies: omg

gnome_friend: its self or itself?
GapFiller: yes
KV1NN4: or it's elf?
gnome_friend: it's a nelf!
KV1NN4: !!
Raiz0k: it's a dwelf?
KV1NN4: got mil--wait no
gnome_friend: I also feel like there must be some joke in the name "Ashphalt" that I'm not seeing like there was with Millenial Bloop
sevenishmagpies: TEETH?
Raiz0k: @gnome_friend : normally it's spelled "Asphalt" :).
gnome_friend: @Raiz0k I know, but not in the song
PharaohBender27: @gnome_friend Oh wow I never noticed that before katesWot
gnome_friend: That's my question
PharaohBender27 runs to get his iPod to check
Raiz0k: If it's from RQ, maybe it's from when they were crossing that First Nation land with the hot springs and whatnot?
Juliamon: Apparently pronouncing it "ashphalt" is a Canadian thing
Raiz0k: Ooooh.
NonUniqueGuy: Hey I actually remembered to check out chillpoint on time
gnome_friend: Huh
lirazel64: Wheee!
matthaus_c: looks like I'm right on time benginDab

DeM0nFiRe: I mean especially CDPR's roadmap they showed in the video. It literally is just "We are gonna make updates to the game at some point in the next 2 years" it has literally no information lol

HorusFive: I can create a "roadmap" for fixing the game. I don't know anything about it, but I can make one
PixelArtDragon: Give us an idea of how the tasks are broken down
couldntpickausername: *hears 'gantt chart' and has project management class flashbacks*
GapFiller: if it werent for the fact that Gantt charts are so unsexy yr wonder why people dont just present their Gantt charts instead of messing around w/ roadmaps
DevInsanity: If CDPR put up a public Jira.....
gnome_friend: What?
gnome_friend: Did you say... "underpants gnomes?"
matthaus_c: also it was fucking hilarious that they said "there was a management problem" and then casually threw shade on the QA team
Raiz0k: Yeah, the LRR crew are pretty much spot on in terms of software. Road maps are pretty much never used for actual software development, they're there to placate the clients/management.
cuttlefishman: "Big Black Bar"
NonUniqueGuy: Not all gnomes know all other gnomes
PharaohBender27: @matthaus_c Plus, "There was a management problem" "Yeah, so why are you still the management?"
Crokoking: you clearly forgot the beej rant on the roadmap
couldntpickausername: Beej should guest on Podquisition, he'd fit right in
red_shoes_jeff: @gnome_friend Old-ish South Park joke.
Snowcookies: If you haven't watched Checkpoint, it is on the LRR youtube channel
fastlane250: i dont, but i should watch them
KSmallmoon: @gnome_friend it's a South Park Joke. The Underpants gnomes had a plan that was 1: Steal underpants. 2: ???? 3: Profit!
aitsu100: yeah where was the homework portion of the road map Paul
NonUniqueGuy: "Did everyone do their homework today?"
matthaus_c: @PharaohBender27 right? "I've proven my incompetence, but I'm still in charge here"
GapFiller: not to be a negative nelly but calling it 'homework' just makes me wanna watch it less
rustenskurk: Have you considered actually just starting Chillpoint with screening Checkpoint, since you'll be talking about it?
rustenskurk: I honestly sometimes forget details about the show after a day
Tehbeard: @Raiz0k "powerpoint Chaff" is how i've heard it described, distract the mob long enough for dev to get something together.
Earthenone: the CPverse is growing
DarkAbyssKeeper: The Checkpoint Stinger will eventually be Sketches.
matthaus_c: Graham and Beej's "Character"
cuttlefishman: Loading Ready "Occasionally Goofy" Run
GapFiller: gotta wonder is the calling it homework ting a kind of inverse advertising where yr shill it inna bad light to selling it ironically
rustenskurk: Remember when the Chekpoint aftershow was almost completely taken up by Kathleen commercials?

PharaohBender27: @Zappeljakob Context for that book: https://clips.twitch.tv/ComfortableReliableConsolePicoMause
RockPusher: LoadingReadyRun: We're funny because Heather throws out the bad stuff! lrrBEEJ
TheMerricat: @Zappeljakob it's a book Heather recently got, https://unbound.com/books/things-i-learned-from-marios-butt/
TacitusVigil: Ah, a Paul sandwich with Dery bread. Hello all.
gnome_friend: lrrWOW lrrPAUL lrrHEATHER
Snowcookies: Paul, be the director
gnome_friend: sergeHi @TacitusVigil
matthaus_c: release the Paul "are we done yet" supercut
DarkAbyssKeeper: Is Dery Bread hypoallergenic?
Raiz0k: @Tehbeard : don't recall ever hearing that one, hilarious and very correct in a lot of workplaces :D! Of course, the problem when the management deploys the constant meeting productivity mines, just to run this metaphor to the ground.
RvLeshrac: Just let them go on forever, and then use that as "bonus" footage when there's a slow week or when you want to go on vacation.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: Release The Saunders Cut!
TacitusVigil: @DarkAbyssKeeper Nah it's cool. :)
PixelArtDragon: The politics group decided to do more politics by doing less politics
Zappeljakob: Thanks Merricat and Pharaohbender, seems like a good precaution to have that^^
HorusFive: You know, corporate BS
TheMerricat: "Whoa!! Those politicians are really scary!!!"
Raiz0k: In the 90s as a kid, I was convinced that there's almost no corruption in Western Europe and the US. Later on I learned it's called "lobbying" and "think tanks".
HorusFive: Wouldn't want politics in your video games
CAKHost: It's a big big Big big thing that can't be explained by roadmaps
Laserbeaks_Fury: Maybe don't do a coup
TacitusVigil: Or...or...just stay quiet and nobody will notice us?
PixelArtDragon: I'm just curious what the lobbying group is going to do if not, well, lobby.
ashteranic: "can't possibly have alignments with the close relationship our industry has with the military-industrial complex and the fomentation of angry-dude-gamers as an identity within games."
DeM0nFiRe: Save 15% or more on car insurance by not having car insurance!
lirazel64: Beej, you are married to a smart person!
EvilBadman: Caught my hand in the cookie jar, so we're not buying cookies anymore
ashteranic: definitely not a subset of the same issue
RockPusher: The Aristocrats!
MidnighterKnight: the aristocrats moment
TheMerricat: The weird part of this was, the ESA apparently is shit at being lobbyists anyway because they weren't giving that much.
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, and that's the advantage - you can't write off a bribe for a tax cut.
geail: The Fukushima tanked his career harder than the 9/11 one
geail: Yeah, that was post Fukushima
TacitusVigil: The Afleck duck is something else.
couldntpickausername: sounds like he ducked up
Camthelion: OH! thats why hes no longer the duck
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : I mean, 2.5k (or was it 25k)? That's peanuts.
RvLeshrac: (Note that he got a lot of response from people actually affected by it who enjoyed the laugh, as opposed to the people who were mad, who were not affected by it)
TheMerricat: ^^^^^^
ranknullity: I always thought the way he spoke was just an Aflac-tation
fastlane250: yeah, brands taking any political stance is usually just for $$$ reasons
ashteranic: Let's not forget the time they doxed all those reporters who went to E3 out of negligence!
DoodlestheGreat: "You don't think we forgot Ubisoft protect sexual abuse, did you?"
SnackPak_: sergeJustRight
RockPusher: I love that joke Paul
gnome_friend: That is excellent
GapFiller: thats always a zinger
Raiz0k: Heh, true.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat @Raiz0k I think $2.5k. Really it comes across as almost a "Hey, we exist! Remember that!" type of donation than an actual attempt to influence policy
Bobtheninjagoldfish: ESA also the European Speenrun Association.
TacitusVigil: Is the UK part of the ESA? Otherwise shouldn't it be the ASE?

GapFiller: at least Wheeler still gets to be The Great Clown Pogliacci
Raiz0k: @PharaohBender27 : yeah, I also think it was 2.5k ("25 hundred"), I was just doubtful that I heard that right. It's actually worse than "we exist", on that level it probably degenerates into "yeah, don't forget our industry sector exists so that you may introduce knee-jerk legislation that we will pretend to fight against!" </tinfoil_hat>
MidnighterKnight: I still don't understand the word "pog".
TemporallyAwry: Yeah - Randomly would have been amazing actually.
ToastyLoaff: have a variety of PogChamps

ToastyLoaff: is it the quality or quantity we want?
EvilBadman: TwitchTVsFrank I think you wrote 'pogchump'
Raiz0k: Yeah, but "same expression" doesn't cut it for peripheral vision.
TacitusVigil: They should just change it to PorgChamp and make it those birds from The Last Jedi.
CaptainSpam: The story I've heard is that it's actually seriously related to a POG competition.
Fullwagon: Awww I don't have PirdePog only PrideKoala
accountmadeforants: wheelerPog PogChamp seabatTROG
DeM0nFiRe: They honestly should just create a fake character to draw for the new emote and every time it turns out they have to stop using someone's face for a pre-existing emote, they draw it with the new character

RunningMonkeys: did they announce the new pog today? I haven't seen one for it and wouldn't know who it was if I wasn't following them already
TacitusVigil: I'll be honest, it didn't occur to me that people would be mad at that. I should have, since people are terrible.
Juliamon: They don't "ask" they just say "ok you get to deal with this today"
Amentur: I'm sure there are contracts made beforehand but they still need to give their moderation a hand
GapFiller: Raiz0k phunnily enough I've never counted either of those for whatever reason
GapFiller: even tho both totes count
NightWingMistHawk: How much of that is motivated by people who are ticked that the OG PogChamp face is gone? I remember seeing a lot of people complaining about it when the first couple of fresh faces were happening.
GapFiller: *shrugs
DoodlestheGreat: According to what was said on Dropped Frames earlier this week, they _do_ make sure to ask the persons involved before putting them in the program.

SmithKurosaki: @Earthenone It's not that you can't, but LRR and LRR adjacents do an excellent job of cultivating a positive space
GapFiller: gnome_friend Fugi is only one guy
TheMerricat: TBH I bounce of pretty much every non-LRR affiliated channel I stumble upon due to how even the 'casual' folk's community is way more toxic than anything I've ever seen in LRR related stuff, even when the Magic crowd invades for those streams.
Raiz0k: (oh that linked, thank Hell for gTLDs)
PixelArtDragon: I don't think I follow more than one or two channels that I didn't either find through LRR and its affiliates or through Twitter
boilersnake: that is ture. I like the youtube videos of streamer but his streams are bad not because of him but beacuse of the community of his
boilersnake: but hier it is grate

Raiz0k: @Flying_MTG : Jim Sterling has a very comprehensive coverage on that, if his style's your jam.

PixelArtDragon: I mean, climbing the tallest towers might work on Coruscant
TheMerricat: @dr0ne00000 blame news sites not wanting their URLS to be unreadable.

dr0ne00000: I miss KOTK games
CAKHost: I'm loving those pictures of Ian
Bobtheninjagoldfish: EA: "Why are you ending this 3 years early?" Disney: You completely Bean's an aboslute gimme of a franchise.
PixelArtDragon: It could be that EA also wants out
Mister_Hush: I seriously doubt they could argue breach of contract if the games are bad and don't sell well.
Lithobraker: Wasn't fallen order really competent?
dr0ne00000: KOTR even
Shiriyun: read the contract is until 2023
Mister_Hush: They made the games.
DeM0nFiRe: I am kind of assuming Disney just bought back the last 3 years of the deal
DarkAbyssKeeper: Exit clauses.
DoodlestheGreat: "The other games you made were utter crap, to the point where you even got lootboxes canned. Well done, jackoffs."
Shiriyun: so the contract is likely still active until then
Bobtheninjagoldfish: Like can you imagine being the person who chancellled star wars 1313? A game wher eyou play a Star Wars bounty Hunter when The Mandalorian is the biggest thing in Star wars in a long time?
TheMerricat: @Mister_Hush EA has sat on the franchise for so long they could easily be in breach of contract if there were a "you must have published X games by now" clauses.
Mister_Hush: Every single business move, whether it's making a game or building a bridge, is a risk, and I highly doubt the contract says anything like "These sales numbers, or it's your ass"
SpoonfullOfSugar: also could have been that they both discovered that they did not work well togeather
DeM0nFiRe: That is what I assume happened
aerobeing: @Bobtheninjagoldfish Would be cool if someone has secretly been developing it and they release with the third season.
Mister_Hush: @TheMerricat That's possible, I guess, but seems unlikely imo, from what I know of other contracts.
GapFiller: the sad part is ofc Disney are one of the few companies who can do that
Lithobraker: That's 99% likely
GapFiller: out of petty cash
PixelArtDragon: This is one of those things that is very hard to speculate on without a lot more knowledge of how multimillion dollar corporate contracts work
Bobtheninjagoldfish: Like How do you cancel 1313 a BOUNTU HUNTER game when THE MANDALORIAN is coming?
TStodden subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 85 months, currently on a 85 month streak!
TStodden: Now Starting: YEAR 8!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TStodden! (Today's storm count: 12)
MolaMolaphant: also possible with the expanding SW releases that they want more games than EA could manage on their own
Foxmar320: Star Wars The Division
GapFiller: yr gotta wonder abt a company when theyre so big that 100m can be considered petty cash
EvilBadman: Star Wars has gone buckwild in their licensing for tv/movies so the games change is not surprising.
Foxmar320: I also play a lot of Assassins Creed games and enjoy them
Foxmar320: Im playing Valhalla now
SnackPak_: It's like Iron Maiden, if it's your jam, it's all good
couldntpickausername: *cough* breath of the wild *cough*
Crokoking: ubisoft mostly went away from that specifc trope
Raiz0k: There's probably a similarity between different "flavors" of meth across trailer park labs...
DoodlestheGreat: It's also likely that other game companies kept pounding on Disney saying "LOOK! We want to do this game and make you tons of money! We do these games all the time! Screw EA!"
PixelArtDragon: Towers are also a thing in Shadow of Mordor
CaptainSpam: Breath of the Wild doesn't pollute your map with icons, though, that was the major difference.
MolaMolaphant: it's not even a bad gimmick. It lets them build out incredible vistas. It's just that the ubisoft climbing puzzles are so samey
EvilBadman: @Crokoking Valhalla has it, Watch Dogs 3 doesn't so ehhh
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah it was originally in assassin's creed and then far cry 3 or 4 added, and I think that is when it became a trope?
Fairgrim: Horizon Zero Dawn felt like this too
TheMerricat: So I raise the question again chat, do we think that Star Wars is going to become the next Warhammer franchise? When GW took the license back from Relic they decided to just open it up to anyone with the cash and now we have 100 different games for the world all of varying quality.
Foxmar320: Yep they still do that in Valhalla
Lithobraker: BOTW did it in a pretty new and well executed manner though
Invitare: as I understand a lot of the Open World clone giberish was primarily down to one manager who's been fired
KeytarCat: @MolaMolaphant Ubisoft doesn't know what people like about their games, so they just keep doing the same thing
accountmadeforants: CaptainSpam Yeah, comparing Immortals Words Words Rysing to Breath of the Wild makes it very clear Ubisoft has a problem.
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah botw made it like a puzzle you solve to unlock the mp in that area, it was nice. But also clearly inspired by ubisoft's games lol
aerobeing: It does sort of make sense as a "scout the area" thing.
Crokoking: @EvilBadman they still have the "synchronize" but it doesn't really do much anymore in newer AC
Foxmar320: In Assassins Creed you spend a lot of times climbing churches to look around
GapFiller: TheMerricat as a sideqq dyr reckon Disney have the same kinda monopoly as GW?
PixelArtDragon: "I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one standing around looking impressed. What's the point of having you all?"
EvilBadman: @Crokoking In valhalla it still adds all the Quests/Treaasures/Quests
dr0ne00000: @TheMerricat when did the license change happen? I grew up with GW ripping everyone off charging tons for miniatures
Laurence72: tropes are tools
Robot_Bones: There are worse things to be than Common
CaptainSpam: In BOTW, you look from the tower, say "hey, that over there looks interesting", and you mark it yourself and head out. It doesn't say "hey friend this is interesting let me just put it and the other eighty things that aren't apparent from this view on your map okay?".
aerobeing: LUL
Foxmar320: So many icons
rustenskurk: Good verb for it
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : honestly, with WH it kind of works (there's so many games most people focus on the good ones), so it's probably a good strategy. What I doubt is that Disney is willing to free up their IP like that, especially after steamrolling "Legends", which was kind of the novel form of that (right?).
aerobeing: Makes the map a scratch-off.
Foxmar320: The worst for that was AC Unity
SmithKurosaki: Yea, valhalla isn't much better for that either
gizmofreak1: they even the Notre Dame Cathedral model from one of the Assassin's Creed games to rebuild the actual Notre Dame @LoadingReadyRun
Foxmar320: The Unity map was just icons ontop of icons
EvilBadman: Paul - Valhalla still does that but it's 5 now instead of 50, thank god
aerobeing: Odyssey
Stoffern: Odyssey
Foxmar320: Odyssey
TheMerricat: @GapFiller on StarWars? yes. @dr0ne00000 around 18 I want to say?
Raiz0k: Orginsey
TacitusVigil: Assassin's Creed: Mario Odyssey
DarkAbyssKeeper: Congratulations, you found a ladder. You are now aware of every criminal and elegant vase within 5 blocks.
dr0ne00000: @TheMerricat so is it better now?
DoodlestheGreat: The greasy one! Assassin's Creed: Canadian Tire!
GapFiller: TheMerricat for all the power Disney wield they do not it feels wield the kinda total absolute power GW wield due to be being the literal only game in town
Foxmar320: Odyssey had the problem that you would hit a wall where you were under level if you didn't do side quests
Raiz0k: @dr0ne00000 : there's a lot more at least decent games than before. Just don't blindly preorder anything with WH on it ;).
Crokoking: Odyssey kinda forces you to do most of the stuff because you need the xp
EvilBadman: Odyssey is the worst for cruft in that regard. Like real bad.
Foxmar320: Valhalla tho Im feeling over leveled all the time.
TheMerricat: @dr0ne00000 so this is for video games, and when Relic had the license it was making Dawn of War games which were almost universially proclaimed as awesome but took forever to come out. Now like I said there are 100's of games but of way differing quality and genre.
SmithKurosaki: At least the skill tree is better
PixelArtDragon: At least we should be grateful that they aren't doled out daily or weekly (cough cough Destiny)
dr0ne00000: @TheMerricat I love the Relic games, hopefully newer ones are ok
Lithobraker: Filters on your map so you can to the UI designers work for them.
Foxmar320: Yep ive seen stuff like that in Valhalla as well
TheMerricat: @GapFiller how many other companies are out there other than Disney who own Star Wars? Maybe I'm not following your point properly?
Crokoking: in valhalla it even bugged out and you couldn't turn off the pictures at the start
matthaus_c: Dune, desert planet?!
Raiz0k: Yeah, I think Disney owns all the IP now?
DoodlestheGreat: So they didn't make it so that settings stay after you close the game... FailFish
Foxmar320: Valhalla has you jumping around a lot. So far I have 5 maps I can hop between
CAKHost: So Dark Souls messages again?
Foxmar320: So they have done that before
GhostValv: ready for 5 planets :)
CAKHost: But with pictures
aerobeing: Division 2, but it's Star Wars. Where bullet sponges make sense.
Fairgrim: Isn't Beej describing Zelda game?
EvilBadman: @Foxmar320 You're not hopping between them constantly though
Invitare: Doesn't Valhalla have like, 4 dfifferent Open Worlds?
DeM0nFiRe: Pod racing didn't stay on one planet though LUL
SmithKurosaki: @CAK: Try tongue but hole?
Foxmar320: EvilBadman sure have been
PixelArtDragon: They might be able to have you do flyovers in your ship instead of towers
ameliette: i wish tiny death star would come back. that was very fun. the few star wars mobile games ive seen have never been in genres i enjoy
Foxmar320: Division team is Ubisoft Massive.
Zappeljakob: !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 PST (45m ago).
KeytarCat: I like the idea of a Crusader Kings style starwars game that takes place on just one planet
DoodlestheGreat: Oh great! Bullet sponge stormtroopers!
drcanonball: AC: starwars inc
SmithKurosaki: Ahhh, so the loot tables will be TERRIBLE then
Foxmar320: Invitare so far 5 world options
DeM0nFiRe: Hahaha
PharaohBender27: katesLol
SnackPak_: but fighting them is so fun
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 PST (45m ago).
m_logan2000: it like being typecast
aerobeing: "Alright. How about you make a game about space nazis."
TheMerricat: Wolfenstein Old Blood = Good, New Blood = not as good, hope Indy = Super Good.
sevenishmagpies: but killing nazis is so much fun!!!
Driosenth: "We really enjoy killing Nazis"
SmithKurosaki: I think the world needs to fight some right now though :p
josh___something: an entire studio typecast LUL
ashteranic: "Stop Asking Me To Be Picard In Things"
GapFiller: TheMerricat its an esoteric point tbf best as I can articulate it for all that Disney 100% owns the IP its still just an IP to them theyre not synonymous w/ Star Wars the way GW IS 40K which as points go is admittedly orthogonal to yr original question
WalrusOntheCourt: The police sketch artisti only sketches natzis.
EvilBadman: @Foxmar320 Fair, I didn't really find myself going back to like Vinland or Asgard after their storylines.
Foxmar320: The Indiana Jones game would work in the AC style
SquareDotCube: What if they did Young Indiana Jones?
Lithobraker: A pulp comic serial? So the same style as the movies then Kappa
RockPusher: Give me my Fate of Atlantis movie dammit!
SmithKurosaki: Fox: Yea, but the engine for AC has not aged well.
Raiz0k: A Nazi GigaChad?
DeM0nFiRe: Actually an indiana jones game would work in a fallen order style lol
Fairgrim: telltale games version?
DoodlestheGreat: Really Byrne Hogarth the game. Works for me.
drcanonball: Fate of Atlantis seconded
WalrusOntheCourt: Now someone who is 9 feet tall, a natzi, killing baby seals with his bare hands!!!
SmithKurosaki: I'd love to see Ubi follow sucker punch's style from Ghosts
WalrusOntheCourt: SO EVIL
DeM0nFiRe: fallen order already has indiana jones style climbing and swinging and such
Laurence72: The uncharted at home?
Foxmar320: Yeah Uncharted Indiana Jones would be great
aerobeing: Somewhat unrelated: Return to Castle Wolfenstein had the best healthkits. They were meals that looked very appetizing.
GapFiller: OH Comix Zone! thanks for that nostalgia bomb Heather
MolaMolaphant: Infernal Machine is what y'all are asking for here...
Ok_We_Live_Here_Now: That was one of my favorites as a kid!
aerobeing: Hot meals.
MolaMolaphant: I taught myself to read with Fate of Atlantis!
Driosenth: bundled with Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max
aerobeing: I don't think I've seen a single whole Indiana Jones movie nor played a game.
Foxmar320: EvilBadman Ive been streaming it so I did story on stream then went back for side stuff off stream
KeytarCat: @MolaMolaphant that's my favorite family story!
TheMerricat: @GapFiller ah, so what you are saying is GW is 'nothing' but Warhammer (40k or Fantasy) and Disney has way many more coals in the fire. I can see that point being relevant. Though I would contend that Disney is sufficiently aggressive about exploiting their IP that they might push SW as hard as GW pushes WH.
gnome_friend: lrrSPOOP
CAKHost: If they do the Indy fights, they also have to add the music too
aerobeing: If it's a google doc, there is a document changes history you can look at. :p
GapFiller: TheMerricat absolutely on that latter point I'd say we're in agreement (also Disney are inna position to be a lot more aggressive abt that stuff)
CAKHost: Though I only really remember the Atlantis one
RockPusher: Beej lied‽ Beej exaggerated.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : the flipside of that argument is, for Disney, it's safer for all involved over there to follow a more "conservative" decision path, exactly because they were assigned to just another IP.
aerobeing: "Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak, somewhere in this town!"
PixelArtDragon: Its really funny that that story came out around the same time as Everjane shutting down
TheMerricat: I think it helps hugely that 'prison' is just another location to RP in rather than an actual punishment.
Foxmar320: Was it GTA5 that had the cheaters only server?
Raiz0k: Are you suggesting everyone went, preferred-vibe-wise, from a Jane Austin novel to a western PixelArtDragon?
RockPusher: RIP EverJane
SmithKurosaki: Fox: You can get banished to the corner (dunce hat) bad player servers in GTA:O
djalternative: If there are no cops, the game cops and robbers has no purpose
Orgmastron: Fs in chat for EverJane
djalternative: RIV EverJane
SmithKurosaki: But that's admin'd by rockstar
josh___something: RIV Everjane
TStodden: GTA Online does have a "Bad Sports" pool of servers, IIRC.
rocketjohn: RIP Chunderfrump
PharaohBender27: Fs in chat for Maggie Chunderfrimp
Snowcookies: RIV
Neddy471: Beej is looking more like Doc Brown every day.
josh___something: @djalternative lol jinx
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I hope so. THB I don't mind the dilution of the Warhammer property and I've gotten a lot less invested in Star Wars as I've grown up, but I'd really hate for Star Wars to go back to having 1,000 different versions of all the popular characters.
Raiz0k: Ah, still remember that W+P....
matthaus_c: "a cult following"
SniperPumpkin: based on some back of the envelope calculations the number of people in that fanbase was probably numbered in the small double digits
accountmadeforants: The W+P is a bit mean in retrospect, but so, so funny
KeytarCat: @matthaus_c occult following
SmithKurosaki: Star Ocean?
GapFiller: if anyones stuck for something to watch after this stream the two times they played EverJane on W+P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQzoPm7W1TA (2017/11/01) and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmiKrDtxbyY (2016/10/19)
djalternative: Phantasy Star?
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
RealGamerCow: Moth people?
spurius: he plays a game for fun?
couldntpickausername: as opposed to people who play dwarf fortess for pain?
SmithKurosaki: rust: Masochism?
Earthenone: for urban development reserch?
Neddy471: ^
SohNata: Exactly the kind of person I would expect Beej to kknow
SniperPumpkin: oh so it's Blaseball
rustenskurk: Oh so proto-blaseball

WonderfulGlory: Kind of like Blasball
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : I see what you mean, that's just mentally draining. And come to think of it, at worst people will be drawn away from SW to something that doesn't iterate on <INSERT_CURRENTLY_MASS_MEDIA_FRIENDLY_CHARACTER_HERE>.
NightWingMistHawk: What game are we talking about? Sorry, stepped away for a sec
Raiz0k: So, it's like Ogame crossed with a MUD?
rustenskurk: Space Something 3
NonUniqueGuy: Star something 3
EvilBadman: Outscape?
Neddy471: Also: People play DF for the views or for the "freak-show" level curiosity.
Fairgrim: This also reminds me of EVE Online stories
Raiz0k: (and cheers to maybe the one other person that knows both of these things, come to think of it)
Neddy471: They've just invented D&D!
Texan_Reverend: Hihgh school, indeed, Heather.

lilyoswald: Oh that is wonderful
aerobeing: PrideWorld
TheMerricat: I just pulled up the Ever Jane facebook page and it made me sad. They were trying to get the money for keeping up the servers for most of last year and after they put up a survey for monthly subscriptions almost 90% of the folk who said they'd support it ghosted.
sevenishmagpies: PrideCrown PrideCrown PrideCrown

niccus: oh, did you hear what happened to the Star Trek wiki?
Mister_Hush: ime
NightWingMistHawk: @niccus I'm guessing it's not good?
Neddy471: That's good. Most of the people I know are just *confused* about what to do, so they overcompensate by being jerks.
KeytarCat: Chaotic evil? More like an asshole
GapFiller: TheMerricat lrrWOW that is supremely depressing
RandomTrivia: Heather, you hero
Neddy471: @KeytarCat There is significant overlap.
Raiz0k: Oh, the latter one is actually pretty great, it's very nice they not only don't go all burn-at-the-stake for someone that doesn't intentionally misgender, but they offer solutions as to how to dig oneself out of a hole in that case.
sevenishmagpies: thx heather!!!
Foxmar320: Right I forgot about the first time

Foxmar320: lol yeah
rocketjohn: Possibly something they wouldnt' stand behind today...
elkae: I’m pretty sure I put the links to each other video of Ever, Jane in the W+P comments too
MortifiedPenguins: @niccus what happened?
kieradrifts: It was so cool to see my favourite content creators talk about my favourite RP community ^^
niccus: yeah, something not good happened at Memory Alpha https://twitter.com/Cube1701/status/1347645582043701253
CaptainSpam: Maaaaaaaybe they were a bit harsh...
PixelArtDragon: In fairness, there was literally nothing else to do
Neddy471: @Raiz0k Yeah, I've been known to misgender cis-hetero people because I have big sausage fingers and I'm an idiot.
GapFiller: if yr cant play it the way its meant to be played yr just gotta make yr own fun eh
NightWingMistHawk: @niccus Lovely. Another fandom I used to love showing how shitty it really is
Raiz0k: @couldntpickausername : there's tons of ways playing evil chars without being an asshole. It's really a test of character.
MortifiedPenguins: how long until an apology video for the apology video
aerobeing: NotLikeThis
niccus: afaict it's mostly that the wiki has a bad admin and the rest of the admin crew isn't taking action, but this isn't going without a fight from the fandom
iris_of_ether: Just right under the bus
rocketjohn: I have been the developer to whom management did that!
PixelArtDragon: Refreshingly bad
SmithKurosaki: Managers: Here's a bus, get under it
ToastyLoaff: lrrDOTS
Raiz0k: No, if they did that with programmers there would be a riot.
Lord_Hosk subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 65 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, osi_layer_8! (Today's storm count: 16)
Raiz0k: They went with testers, because on the job market rn, testers == often junior programmers trying to find a job.
ToastyLoaff: lrrWOW
ashteranic: (buuuuuuuuuuullllllllllshit)
rasterscan: That was a giant lie.
Thandres: it can be true if they had no QA :P
Raiz0k: They're to smart to kill their golden goose.
Raiz0k: *too
RandomTrivia: It's quite impressive how quickly and how many people were thrown under a bus
SpoonfullOfSugar: On PC i've encountered very few bugs
rocketjohn: QA people are better than that
Talin06: they just did not test it on older systems
TheMerricat: @niccus that sucks, not surprising sadly, but sucks.
aerobeing: How were they doing the QA? What was the procedure?
accountmadeforants: "Did you actually give them the time and resources to QA that?"
grax_strife: I think if they admitted to that, it could be used in the lawsuit.
MortifiedPenguins: I've head cdpr are having a hard time finding new staff, I guess they've just made it even harder
PixelArtDragon: If QA didn't find that, it's still management's fault for not screening applicants properly
KeytarCat: "Hi, we didn't hire competent testers because we wanted to save money and time"
Lord_Hosk: QA testers never turned on legacy consoles
aerobeing: It seems like it was not QAd at all.
rustenskurk: Sea level magement?
ashteranic: more likely, QA knew, said so, filed the bugs, and they were consistent in punting them to a later milestone
SmithKurosaki: QA generally gets treated like crap
SmithKurosaki: Odds are they weren't given suffcient resources to properly QA
Tehbeard: Issues lost in a "JIRA upgrade".
RandomTrivia: Not to be confused with sea-level management, soon to be In-The-Sea-level management
Earthenone: i wonder if they paid the QA team or people paid to be on the QA team
Lithobraker: @Raiz0k step 1, ignore the QA ticket. Step 2 blame the QA for not sufficiently warning you about game breaking bug
niccus: the fallout last i checked is that "gender" has been removed from *everyone* in the wiki
ANeMzero: I mean they still shipped with a bunch of showstoppers
accountmadeforants: That's what triage is for
KeytarCat: Showstopper, like the massive dong clipping through my pants!
bytecaster: Yeah, that would be my bet. But who knows.
lilyoswald: I've been on programing teams where that happens right before launch
aerobeing: Or someone just said "yeah, it's all checked" at a meeting.
Raiz0k: @Neddy471 : ...or getting to excited to write. As long as one catches oneself, it's OK IMO. The actual assholes that misgender are really easy to read.
TheMrFraser: as someone who has been on the receiving end of that for a piece of internal use software i could believe that
GapFiller: having done games testing can confirm that is absolutely a ting that happens tho obvs cant say either way it was the case here
aerobeing: And they were a person who didn't have anything to do with the actual QA.
Lord_Hosk: KeytarCat thats not a showstopper the game still plays with that
Raiz0k: @Lithobraker : hey, who gave you credentials to my JIRA board?!
josh___something: "literally unplayable" but not in a joking sense
ANeMzero: I have hardware that meets the recommended specs for 1080p at high and I can't maintain 30FPS at 720p medium/low
The_FlyingDutchman: I mean i have delayed 2 IT projects at work due to QA issues already.
Fairgrim: spaghetti code
gnome_friend: @RealGamerCow didn't Beej say not to clip that?
djalternative: exactly
RvLeshrac: There's no better way to get a clip.
aerobeing: @josh___something They asked the QA person whether it's all good and they laughed histerically. And they misinterpreted it as "good", when it was actually "very bad".
ATrophonian: Perfect Clip!
aerobeing: *hysterically
Raiz0k: Actually, how does that work out chronologically? *Could* they have skipped last gen? When did they start taking pre-orders for PS4 etc.?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: StAR cITIZEN?
Lithobraker: @Raiz0k the JIRA credentialing system worked in dev, it's an ops problem now.
PixelArtDragon: I've restarted a game 12 times, but my reasons for not finishing it has nothing to do with my available hardware :p
Raiz0k: @Bobtheninjagoldfish : we're talking about games here, not tech demos ;).
Fairgrim: I love going to conventions and seeing all the setups be hidden PCs inside of fake consoles
Lithobraker: Commit to the commit message
SmithKurosaki: Judge! I've committed a loop
Raiz0k: @Lithobraker : ah, just fess up, you're a Five Eyes agent that got bored on the shift.
PharaohBender27: "But do you commit to committing to commit?" katesSass
gnome_friend: "have to" abuse the staff
PixelArtDragon: I dunno, 5-6 levels of commitment>
PixelArtDragon: The highest levels of management can't be replaced by anyone other than shareholders, though
djalternative: commit to making a commitment 5 months down the line about which commitment you're going to make
aerobeing: What about last fucking decade, when you promised it.
Lord_Hosk: "we HOPE to have no OBLIGITORY overtime"
Fairgrim: "Just don't have crunch"
Juliamon: Yeaaaah I wondered why that sentence wasn't addressed
Lord_Hosk: there are two key words
RealGamerCow: We promise in the future to try and prioritize the reduction of situations that lead to "crunch"
Neddy471: @Raiz0k I know, but I imagine if I'm that clueless when the answers are obvious, I can only imagine how bad I'd be if I was confused. (I have a few trans friends that I've known through their transitions, and I still make mistakes)
Juliamon: Apparently everyone's hot for Bowser again

ToastyLoaff: Bowsers Fjory
impoftheperverse: Super Sajain Kaiju Cat Mario
PixelArtDragon: "Obligatory" is known as the "gun to the head" defense i.e. "no one had a gun to their head forcing them to overtime" which is a very weak defense, because it means they still can promote those that do work overtime over those that don't
Orgmastron: Juliamon That implies they ever stooped Kappa
Raiz0k: Thank you for giving a conceptual aneurysm PharaohBender27 and PixelArtDragon to all programmers here, what with the semantic overload of "commit".
Orgmastron: stopped*
flouncy_magooo: Where's the Funky New Mode for 3D World?
Juliamon: Orgmastron That's why I said apparently. I know I never stopped.
ToastyLoaff: Ive seen that anime
Mister_Hush: @PixelArtDragon Or fire the ones who refuse overtime, depending on local labor law
djalternative: yeah. that's the final boss battle in the game
PixelArtDragon: @Raiz0k Are you saying I pushed it too far? Kappa
TheMilquetoastFool: Bowser's furrys.
lilyoswald: "Are you sure you want this?"
Lord_Hosk: In the future we plan to not have mission creep, we plan to hire an appropriate level of staff from the very start, and plan to only start marketing the game once its ready to launch not base the programing based on the launch schedule.
Fairgrim: Mario Tennis
Mister_Hush: My favorite thing about Dr Mario is Miyomoto himself saying in an interview, "Maybe perhaps that doctor was not exactly legitimate."
Juliamon: "I'm making the 'most beloved' series? Awesome!"
CaptainSpam: I mean, it STARTED with jumping on turtles, punching bricks, throwing fireballs due to a flower...
The_Color_Twelve: its that "Things I learned from Mario's Butt" in the background?
Raiz0k: @PixelArtDragon *melts into a puddle of loosely-connected neural tissue*. Also FootYellow .
Juliamon: The_Color_Twelve Yup
The_Color_Twelve: fun
impoftheperverse: You can access it riught away
sevenishmagpies: it's a separate mode
The_FlyingDutchman: looked like a one bg mission type, maybe 3-5 hours worth
PixelArtDragon: I wonder what the original devs of Mario would have thought if they knew their creation would eventually be such a massive franchise
Foxmar320: I loved the original game
impoftheperverse: looks like Oydssy DLC the added on to this instead
Raiz0k: @Neddy471 : that's procedural memory for you, it was fast enough for "which berry bad", but not fast enough now.
Deathclaw31: bowsette and Booette
RealGamerCow: The internet was hornier about it
TStodden: They added Toadette & Nabbit (which spawned the Bowsette)
lilyoswald: ah, bowsette, what a thing
Foxmar320: Sims 4 now with Luigi's Mansion ghosts
djalternative: but do they go for blonde bowsette or readhead bowsette
Raiz0k: Oh, so that where the new deluge of Bowsette art is coming from...
impoftheperverse: Nabbit was in the DLC "New Super Luigi U"
NonUniqueGuy: Will it do as well as the Star Wars Sims expansion they put out last?
Fairgrim: Halloween in the Spring!
impoftheperverse: the DLC was folded into Deluxe
niccus: apparently a lot of people just found out that you can go first person in Sims 4
Blade_Tiger: The Sims / Phasmophobia crossover
PixelArtDragon: At this point it feels like Sims 4 news is "wait, that wasn't already in the game?"
Foxmar320: Who?
ToastyLoaff: como?
RandomTrivia: wat?
niccus: but does it feel good?
TStodden: With this update, Death is no longer a career-ending event.
RandomTrivia: oh no
RealGamerCow: pardonfuck
djalternative: Yeah. Bonehilda is great
TheMerricat: The Sims is one of those franchises that I would be in 100% for if it weren't for the fact that I know it takes a decade for them to release all the packs and by the time they are done the full set costs around $700.
MidnighterKnight: Works for me.
Foxmar320: The Sims games are out there so im not surprised

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, bustingmakesmefeelsgud! (Today's storm count: 18)
RandomTrivia: I guess fans love *any* character in a maid outfit
Foxmar320: The gamer mask
CAKHost: Wasn't Bonehilda in Sims 1's Making Magic expansion?
Fairgrim: it's RGB so it's gamer news!
aerobeing: Concept car for your face!
NonUniqueGuy: @TheMerricat And then they come out with a new game with better graphics and less features so they can spend another decade making expansions
NightWingMistHawk: Ah yes, the Razer mask that will likely be waay overpriced because Razer
Juliamon: I honestly dig the mask
sevenishmagpies: i will buy it if it comes with matching kitty ears
impoftheperverse: put Super Sayian Kaiju Cat Mario in a Maid outfit
Foxmar320: Now you have to remember to charge your mask as well
Mister_Hush: @TheMerricat I think of The Sims like action figures or a Barbie Dreamhouse. You don't need every single piece of the product line, and probably wouldn't be super happy with each and every one.
niccus: it has some good points, and multiple questionable points
RandomTrivia: Will it have Razer branding? Because that stuff is expensive...
Mister_Hush: They make a lot of stuff to appeal to a lot of different people.
aerobeing: I like the active breathing thing if it works well.
GapFiller: off chance anyone hasnt seen the Razer Mask yet feast yr eyes: https://www.razer.com/gb-en/concepts/razer-project-hazel
Juliamon: Mostly I like the voice amplifying detail
niccus: neon goth is back
Foxmar320: Juliamon I like it as well except for the part that people can see my mouth. I like wearing a mask to cover that.
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: it's an aesthetic choice
Camthelion: cybergoth as hell
PixelArtDragon: Wait, wasn't it shown that this kind of mask is actually less effective at stopping the spread of viruses?
aerobeing: The case does do UV "disinfection".
lilyoswald: ok
Juliamon: As someone who can have trouble understanding muffled speech, the voice amp thing has me very excited
TheNerdWonder: If it has valves, it’s useless as a filtering mask
NonUniqueGuy: of course it has voice effects
lilyoswald: look, That looks like a kink thing.
Laserbeaks_Fury: No one cared who I was till I put the mask on
RandomTrivia: Wait, I can have an Iron Man style PA built into my mask? SOLD
spurius: so a bank robery mask?
niccus: @PixelArtDragon normally yeah, but it looks like the outlet-looking things are more for aesthetic, and it's filtered with speakers looking like valves
aerobeing: Not sure if actual voice effects or just amplification. But I hope it does the Bane voice.
The_Color_Twelve: I'm sure I've seen it in cyberpunk
Raiz0k: FYI: there were at least THREE "smart" face masks at CES.
niccus: or at least it *claims* to be filtered both directions
TheMerricat: @Mister_Hush I wish I could look at it the same way but I was actually able to get pretty much everything but the EA Store content for Sims 3 late in their cycle and during a rare sale for it so I only ended up spending ~$200 and played all of it and really wanted a lot of the store stuff but didn't trust EA enough to be willing to buy stuff off their store (plus store stuff never went on sale)
aerobeing: Oh, does it? I thought they were proprietary. If they do, that's good.
KyoteOfTheStream subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 70 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, KyoteOfTheStream! (Today's storm count: 19)
Mister_Hush: @TheMerricat That's absolutely fair, giving EA copious sums of cash is a real problem
Lord_Hosk: Ohhh look at you canadians with a working pulp and a N95 manufacturing industry
aerobeing: I think it's cool and stupid at the same time.
Foxmar320: Thats the part I don't like
Raiz0k: They all have different features.
RandomTrivia: Huh. It actually sounds like they've thought it out. And absolutely over-engineered
aerobeing: Depending on the price, as well.
Juliamon: It's overengineered but it's getting good ideas out there
SirBiffaloEsq: So if it's dark out all you see is a glowing mouth, cool
lucha_libro: How long until beej becomes Doc Brown?
djalternative: Not even for a crapshot?
TheNerdWonder: This is on the same level as the emotion sensing cat ears
Fairgrim: As someone with hard of hearing I need people to wear clear masks so I can lip read
Juliamon: Much like how I don't intend to buy a rollable phone, I like knowing the tech exists
Lithobraker: Having the mouth visible us important for those with hearing difficulties, but it looks so ugly
TheMilquetoastFool: Over engineered piece of tech? Sounds like Razr alright.
RandomTrivia: From here it's only a short step to retro-reflective displays to have a Vtuber mouth in front of your own :D
GapFiller: the only reason I'm seeing to get one of these is to go w/ yr fluorescent dreadlocks and glowsticks
SniperPumpkin: may of the elements are good, but it's a bit too GAMER_TM to actually want
iris_of_ether: I'm with Heather here
aerobeing: Plague doctors.
Invitare: why are Smart Masks a thing but we still don't have Smart Glasses?
Raiz0k: @RandomTrivia : "A Scanner Weebly"?
RvLeshrac: I can get reasonably-priced cartridges for my half-mask, but I can't get reasonably-priced paper N95s.
TStodden: I can see Heather going for a mask that lets you cosplay as Nook.
TheMerricat: @Invitare we do?
Invitare: not at a consumer level
DoodlestheGreat: Oh, we furries have been taking advantage of mask tech for quite a while.
djalternative: @Invitare because people felt that they were huge invasions of privacy
aerobeing: @Invitare We do. It's called LASIK. Kappa
fastlane250: well that was a rare sentence
KilrenKrae: fursuit vehicle

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Scp_049_Cure! (Today's storm count: 20)
The_Color_Twelve: just like the Germans
Deathclaw31: a polar bear
Invitare: djalternative only if they have cameras on. I'm sure you could come up with some other way to record gestures. IR or something.
aerobeing: @Invitare Or TransPRK, for the mostly-laser-only option.
aerobeing: It sounds like a Beerfest thing to me.
couldntpickausername: or a mountie hat...
flouncy_magooo: I'm German and used to the cliche. It's a big shrug for me.
Zappeljakob: probaly more to the bavarians then Germans as a whole
The_FlyingDutchman: nah, it would only be appropriative if germans would actually be that way
djalternative: @Invitare sure but consumer perception being soured by google glass had a very large impact on the whole idea
pyronils80: It is offensive! Not all Germans are from Bavaria! I am from the north of Germany!
flouncy_magooo: Yeah, all the Lederhosen stuff is very local to Bavaria
Our_oBoros: Well, this german thinks it is quite silly, nothing more.
CaptainSpam: I mean, the mountie outfit would be pretty awesome.
DoodlestheGreat: I guess in Italy, Mario and Luigi would just be... Mario and Luigi. BUT DRIVING A PIZZA!
RvLeshrac: TheMerricat: I like how that article says "consumers aren't interested" as though the actual problem isn't that every VR thing is *holy shit* expensive for no value.
Juliamon: Germans I've met seem to take it as humorous
aerobeing: @djalternative It is apparently still being used in some commercial environments, if I haven't been misinformed.
The_FlyingDutchman: I hope there is a clogs and cheese option for the dutch version
Raiz0k: :D
Talin06: cultural telephone
CMDRNuffin: As a non-bavarian German, I am deeply offended by the fact that the only widely used German stereotype is the stereotypical bavarian
KeytarCat: Like the In-n-Out in Norway!
TheMilquetoastFool: Most contrived game of telephone ever.
sevenishmagpies: they should have the japanese yodel guy instead
rustenskurk: I think whether it's "offensive" depends a lot on whether there are more serious tensions between the cultures.
aerobeing: I sure hope I get to experience Denno Coil level of glasses.
The_Color_Twelve: Eh, curling, and poutine I assume
ghyllnox: Maaaaybe not the best models for appropriation, Disney
Raiz0k: I'm really thankful none of our folk dresses really went into the collective US consciousness now.
Sogheim: toques and hockey, that's what we're taught
accountmadeforants: And the US is especially fun with "My family's originally from *European country", so we always do *thing said country has never done or heard of*"
ToastyLoaff: Its like if US was depicted as only Texans
GapFiller: yr wonder how many people (esp in The States) just assume everyone in Canada is exactly like Bob and Doug McKenzie
KSmallmoon: @aerobeing Seconded. AR is awesome.
TheMerricat: @RvLeshrac I think that's a lot of "we know if we sell these as 'consumer' devices we'll be crucified as bad as Google was for Glass".
PharaohBender27: "That one thing" which is very specifically from one region of that country.
The_Color_Twelve: maybe a double decker and a red phone box
RandomTrivia: Bonus for that one, it angers the Scots!
Fairgrim: is this a dunk on FRWL now
The_FlyingDutchman: @PharaohBender27 and from like 100 years ago
Foxmar320: wat
RandomTrivia: OH NO
Sogheim: bring back Britney Spears, Pokemon!
aerobeing: Multi-meaning phrase depending on spelling.
djalternative: HA
ToastyLoaff: Perrikate is the new pokemon
PharaohBender27: People unfamiliar with Germany (I studied there - in Bavaria, in fact) fail to understand that Bavaria is kind of Germany's Texas.
impoftheperverse: Katy Perry cover of "Gotta Catch em All"
Snowcookies: uh huh
Foxmar320: Shocking
NimrodXIV: hah
CaptainSpam: Ah, yes. The rat.
RandomTrivia: I would say "bring back Donna Summer" given her one cameo, but uh... Sadness
cuttlefishman: I mean, how old is Katie Perry?
josh___something: Basic as HELL
djalternative: shocked_pikachu.jpg
Bobtheninjagoldfish: PSYDUCK
GapFiller: tbf Katy Perry is just following Kyary Pamyu Pamyus example
Raiz0k: Also, let's not forget that the perception of "Italian" and "Greek", etc., was actually heavily lobbied in the US.
CururuGuasu: She’s already a Final Fantasy character, so why not Pokémon now?
cuttlefishman: Was she around for the 151 OG?
captain_wulf: can she even name a different on?
Mister_Hush: Not even a literal DARK HORSE? come on
rogerivany: I think mine is Snorlax
RvLeshrac: Katy Perry's favourite Pokémon being pikachu is on-brand, though.
KV1NN4: nooo Britney Spears should be hired back for this
Mister_Hush: It was right there
Deathclaw31: sciHype
djalternative: HELL YEAH
accountmadeforants: That's how you know Nintendo paid them to do it. Well, that and Charizard probably.
Orgmastron: POKEMON SNAO
Foxmar320: Mimiku best pokemon
Orgmastron: NAP*
Orgmastron: SNAP*
PixelArtDragon: Okay but Gible is basically Left Shark
cuttlefishman: Pokemon Snap (2021)
Juliamon: Because everyone was asking for "a new Pokemon Snap"
DeM0nFiRe: New Pokemon Snap 3DS XL Lite
ToastyLoaff: Pokemon Digital Snap
RandomTrivia: Pokemon Snap HD?
SirBiffaloEsq: Eh, think I'll wait for New Pokemon 3DSnap XL
RandomTrivia: Snap DX?
Sogheim: Pokemon Snap iOS
aerobeing: Pokemon Snack.
iris_of_ether: @pixelartdragon Confirmed
rasterscan: Pokemon Snap: Redeveloped
fastlane250: “It’s Pokemon Snap”
CururuGuasu: Pokémon Ah Snap

tergonis: Super Pokemon Snap
impoftheperverse: Pokemon Snap: Snappier
KeytarCat: I can't Believe it's not Pokemon Snap!
Bobtheninjagoldfish: SNAP HARDER
RandomTrivia: LUL Twitter plays Pokemon is one hell of a concept
PixelArtDragon: Praise Helix Fossil!
djalternative: Pokemon Snap World
Raiz0k: Oh, Heather :D.
Fairgrim: Twitter plays pokemon?
The_FlyingDutchman: Pokemon Snapocalypse
djalternative: PraiseIt PraiseIt PraiseIt PraiseIt
RandomTrivia: "Why does this guy keep getting replies saying Start9?"
Sogheim: All-Terrain Venomoth?
Raiz0k: "It's sales all the way down."
CastleOtranto: I have paid as little as 4 cents on the eshop
fastlane250: One dev did that a while ago and you could chain like 10 free games
impoftheperverse: I thought they wew just stopping games under $1.99 to come up the charts
Raiz0k: Oh, so it's Steam Greenlight redux essentially.
SquareDotCube: oh yeah, that was Drawful 2. Jackbox couldn't do limited-time free games for some reason on the eShop
TheNerdWonder: Probably helps overcome any credit card fees too
Faulpyr: And if it's credit card purchase... there those fees.
CaptainSpam: Eh, Drawful 2 was never free on Steam, either.
The_FlyingDutchman: salesxratings variables?
lion000000000000: You do it based on certain timeframes that dropoff over time, thus making a bunch of cheap sales one year wont help future sales
KeytarCat: I'd say a godsend
HorusFive: You can't stop "gaming the algorithm" That's part of being an algorithm.
djalternative: yeah. $1.99 seems like an actual common sense minimum nintendo could do to still make money on a sale
Athelgar: I would assume it could reduce mass bot purchases to drive up numbers as well
Raiz0k: @djalternative : it's also useful as a spam-blocker, as was discussed now.
Peter200lx: When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure
RandomTrivia: What a basic Beej LUL
Deathclaw31: Dunsparce best pokemon
GapFiller: De Fault the two finest syllables in the English Language
ghyllnox: Oh I love this kind of thing, it's a very interesting type of problem
Driosenth: why not number of purchases per dollar
Raiz0k: @GapFiller :D
Mysticman89: nintedo in a fugue state
TheMerricat: busted/.
Raiz0k: Nintendo stories? With Beej? Complete coincidence!
Foxmar320: lol
3and4fifths: diplomatic immunity
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Raiz0k: "3.6 Nintento stories. Not great, not terrible."
ToastyLoaff: Dont kink shame
iris_of_ether: "Oh No He's Hot" was a hilarious title
Lithobraker: Maybe you rank it by gross revenue divided by current price. So a game that sells a bunch when cheap will rank way lower if they massively increase the price
impoftheperverse: But kink shaming is MY kink
RandomTrivia: They didn't realise it was main, I guess?
Raiz0k: Oh so *that's* where the Bowsette memes come from.
The_Color_Twelve: Baraowser
cuttlefishman: Meowth can do better impressions
cuttlefishman: Just saying
LordZarano: the steam stats websites could sort all games by playtime, which obviously favours longer games but was generally pretty good
GapFiller: also Ashs Pikachu is the only Pikachu documented surfing
rogerivany: Ash's greninja is OP though.
Foxmar320: Ok thats fair cause Ash's Pikeachu is goofy
RandomTrivia: Ash's Pikachu is secretly a Ditto - Send Tweet
impoftheperverse: "Oh you're into that, that's awful...tell me more"
Ivannorr: Ash's Pikachu's parent was obvs a Ditto
Foxmar320: Story checks out
djalternative: Also, there's one very weird lore moment where ash's pikachu enters a shared dream state where he talks with other pokemon. This is in XY&Z
rasterscan: Who else will be there?
The_Color_Twelve: oh so that's how that works
Zappeljakob: doesn't arena call that Artisan?
Raiz0k: Huh.
GapFiller: DB HYPE

impoftheperverse: Taiko got ported to Switch but still no Yokai Watch 4
