xythrogar: will we be quizzed on the gameplay?
RomanGoro: I've been needing to be súper stimulated to avoid bad spirals lately, so I'm here for chaos
CAKHost: Will it be like that card game you played?
CAKHost: That would be cool!
GhostValv: wow... huh
EricTheOrange: Smup it up
Two_Hats: Hello everyone!

jessieimproved: I've seen some bigger humans look like they're going to shake a poor machine apart
RandomTrivia: Tilt in Pinball was a different thing, they would have tilt sensors for detecting people trying to cheat by tilting the table, but it wasn't specifically about tilting when you do poorly
mizzytastic: tilt like that is a poker term, but I dunno if there is an etymology before that
Goblinsinsuits: looks like each time you do it it lights up a letter
GhostValv: D:
Laserbeaks_Fury: ow many tables are there?
EricTheOrange: I do like this games aesthetic. Dense pixel graphic animation.
Raiz0k: Hi all, is this Demons' Souls Pinball?
mizzytastic: modern high detail pixel art is the perfect look for a pinball game
ZeroArcana: playin' some painball?
EricTheOrange: So can you "win" this board and move on to a new board?
Tiber727: @Laserbeaks_Fury Just one table. The main way it changes is the "boss" at the bottom.

EricTheOrange: yeah
Raiz0k: Yup!
Laserbeaks_Fury: yes
DeM0nFiRe: It is a little loud
mizzytastic: or dungeon keeper maybe
kumatsu: This definitely reflects my experience with pinball of "wishing time moved at half speed so I could process what is going on"
RandomTrivia: Is quite loud
Laserbeaks_Fury: and a little loud
SurfDownstage: its fine
RandomTrivia: Better
KV1NN4: yeah loud
Raiz0k: Now it's too quite.
Spacepup: Too quiet now I think.
Raiz0k: *quiet
KV1NN4: betetr thanks!
SurfDownstage: cant hear it anymore
EricTheOrange: turn it up a little please
djalternative: yeah. split the diff
Spacepup: Could go up another 10%-20%
vellebastet: You got this, Cam. unarmeHeart
seanmrwick: this looks super cool
Tiber727: Just remember that unlike regular pinball, tilting the table is outright encouraged in this game.
SurfDownstage: ty
EricTheOrange: yeah thats good
RandomTrivia: That's good volume
Spacepup: Sounds about perfect there, close to your volume.

DeM0nFiRe: Is the video choppy for anyone else or is it on my side?
EricTheOrange: so you can beat the bosses? do they come back?
RaklarLS: super choppy for me too
Spacepup: Yeah, choppy for me too.
CAKHost: Is Cam and Cori trading off?
RandomTrivia: @DeM0nFiRe It's the discord stream that's choppy
RandomTrivia: Cori is fine
Spacepup: Cori's video was fine, but Cam's is having some frame drops for me.
SkylerRingtail: Ah, was about to ask if anyone else was having framerate issues
EricTheOrange: yeah it's cam feed, I dunno if anything can be done
RandomTrivia: We're watching Cam's stream via discord, broadcast from Cori's end
Spacepup: It's not bad, as long as *I'm* not the one playing.
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
GhostValv: skill
Solipsody: So this is only this jerky to us?
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah it's two layers of streaming
RandomTrivia: Cori is seeing exactly what we're seeing. It's known and not solvable
RandomTrivia: Oh no
SkylerRingtail: Afraid this is making me queasy, so I'll have to bow out. Have a good afternoon, folks!
TehAmelie: getting a respectable score though
EricTheOrange: so what happens if you beat all three bosses?
CaptainSpam: Probably wizard mode.
RandomTrivia: Sorry to hear that, SkylerRingtail, take care! lrrHEART
vellebastet: @skylerringtail Sorry it's doing that to you. Hope you have a lovely day!
RaklarLS: so we got an angry cat and some sort of nun, and now a shoggoth
Tiber727: @EricTheOrange There's more than 3 bosses I think. But it starts over.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh hey, I met them in Bloodborne
Laserbeaks_Fury: _| |_
Nebula662: Holy crap Demon's tilt....what????
vellebastet: You did so well!
GhostValv: how the turntables
EricTheOrange: 0th place
TehAmelie: looks like we got ourselves a ball game here (sorry)
mizzytastic: how important do you think the random element is to roguelikes?
RandomTrivia: A Roguelike but your progression is what you learn? That's a platformer isn't it?
Tiber727: I would be up for a pinball game with randomly generated tables, come to think of it.
Laserbeaks_Fury: B-B-B-Bals of Steel
TehAmelie: Einstein mode, if you wanna be funny
RandomTrivia: Like, we're not unlocking new table features or more powerful flippers
Laserbeaks_Fury: Real question: Can you tilt the board?
Tiber727: @RandomTrivia No, that's a roguelike. Roguelikes have been around for like 30-40 years, and for much of that time metaprogression did not exist
RandomTrivia: That's the REAL Pinball experience, wondering how someone ever managed to score that high
RandomTrivia: @Tiber727 I see, I didn't know that was a relatively new development
Solipsody: @mizzytastic The random element in roguelikes means you have to learn general skills/information rather than optimal paths/timing. Theoretically that's kind of the opposite of pinball, but it's hard to say with all the dynamic elements here.
EricTheOrange: @RandomTrivia well in traditional rougelikes you do not unlock power ups. some people will deliniate the two and the ones where you get stronger are "rouge lites".
Raiz0k: @RandomTrivia : if you're unlocking some progression, then that's a "rougeLITE".
Tiber727: @RandomTrivia There's an ongoing debate over whether having metaprogression invalidates calling it a roguelike.
Raiz0k: (esp. metaprogression)
Raiz0k: Heh, yeah, what Tiber said.
CAKHost: Is this progress?
Solipsody: The term is so broad now that it doesn't really mean much anymore.
RandomTrivia: That sounds like a fascinating thing to gain some Random Trivia from Kappa
EricTheOrange: Personaly I find the rougelike VS rougelite debate pedantic. But that's just me.
Raiz0k: And I think the term rougelite was invented, not to offend the rougelike diehards/purists.
RandomTrivia: @EricTheOrange I also think it's pedantic, but that doesn't mean I don't find it interesting
Solipsody: Oof, I'm having problems with the video here that I don't think I can keep watching... I'll try the VOD later. Ciao.
TehAmelie: whoops, the stream was so intense i almost burned my dinner
RandomTrivia: Take care, Solipsody! lrrHEART
EricTheOrange: still a bit choppy. I'm fine with it personally.
Raiz0k: IMO it's both, from a game design point of view, it's def. a valid discussion, but there's often a gatekeeping component unfortunately.
CaptainSpam: Reminds me of the Powerball in the Twilight Zone table, except heavier instead of lighter.
TehAmelie: it would be so hard to build just one balanced and fun pinball table. now to make them procedurally you basically have to teach a computer to do that
djalternative: wow. pinball loves to go for all of the testicle euphamisms it can get.
Tiber727: I believe the term "rogueLITE" was invented by the people who made Rogue Legacy.
EricTheOrange: As a child I had kirby pinball for the gameboy. that's the only pinball game I've ever really put time into
KeirenH: is the stream dropping lots of frames or is that on my end?
CaptainSpam: @djalternative Nah, that was just Balls of Steel. It's usually not that bad.
fragilepaper: LUL
Shinji16: So happy Dragon's Fury wasn't the last gothic horror pinball game
RandomTrivia: @KeirenH We're watching Cameron streaming through Discord, broadcast to Twitch from Cori's end
fragilepaper: Oh god noooo
NimrodXIV: cool split screen
EricTheOrange: @KeirenH it's a known issue, cuz cam is streaming to cori and cori is streaming to us.
djalternative: @CaptainSpam when you lose a ball in this game, you drain your ball
vellebastet: This is chaaoooos and I love it
TehAmelie: now there's double infinity stuff on the screen
RandomTrivia: Keep telling yourself that Cameron LUL
EricTheOrange: we omnly have one game audio, which is a good thing
niccus: is there a TASbot for an irl pinball table?
CaptainSpam: @djalternative Yes, that's standard pinball terminology. That area of the table is the drain. The ball falls down it.
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : that's entirely feasible, generative algorithms are by far nothing new. In fact, the modern "This Person Does not Exist" stuff you may have seen relies on essentially two neural networks competing against each other (one tries to convince the other that the image is "real").
RandomTrivia: For an IRL pinball table that would be exceptionally difficult as you would have to match the exact plane of the table or the movement would be subtly different.
djalternative: @CaptainSpam and I'm saying that this applies to all of pinball, not just the videogame versions
CaptainSpam: @djalternative Then I'm just saying you're reading too much into it. :p
NightWingMistHawk: Are there multiple tables in this game?
SurfDownstage: I'm a big fan of bad-audio-quality-core

Boon_33: was watching dice friends last night and did not expect Cory was telling the truth when she said this would be demon's pinball
LurkerSpine: as a kid I loved rollerball on the NES and now I'm suddenly nostalgic for it
Loonatic93: So this is basically Hot Topic the Pinball game?
Tiber727: My dad loved to spend time in a bar. Pinball was an important part of my childhood.
insane_42: one more? I thought this was talking sim
CaptainSpam: To be fair, multiball can be hard to track in real pinball, too.
Tiber727: Multiball = spam the flippers.

BogglesUrMind: Just got here. Is this just high quality pixel art pinball or does it have some other twist?
insane_42: I wonder if you could stack 3 monitors like you can do 3 monitors with a racing game to see the entire board at once
PandasAndPancakes: This and Devil Daggers would have been instigated burning of piles of cartridges
adamalprime: it was called devil's Crush on the Turbo Grafx 15...
Orgmastron: LMAO Casmeron
azureHaights: In an alternate universe, does that give us Desert Tilt For Hope
7gorobei: is there an option for people with monitors that can rotate into portrait mode?
Orgmastron: Cameron*
CaptainSpam: I still want to see an Apollo 13 table at some point, with its ridiculous 13-ball multiball (yes, really). Probably *completely* unmanageable, but still, fun-sounding gimmick.
LordZarano: @BogglesUrMind It has some bullet hell elements
TehAmelie: i once read an authentic pamphlet warning against the devil's work called Diablo
Spacepup: Man, some of my earliest memories are leaning on the computer table chair-arms, and watching my mom play Wolfenstein 3D.
DeM0nFiRe: I am liking the music for this
Coyoteofthenine: kids in the 80's would play this then try to feed ball bearings to snakes and loins
ContingentCat: !holes
LRRbot: The Hole Story, with Nigel Fitzgerald Brouwer
azureHaights: @LurkerSpine Glad to see I'm not the only one with Rollerball nostalgia
Raiz0k: Given that Harry Potter is also regarded as the Devil's Work™, completely unsurprised.
azureHaights: Music so GOOD
TehAmelie: the part where the game is about "fighting" Diablo was apparently lost on them. . .
RandomTrivia: If you want a TalkingSim "What is this game trying to say?" angle, how about this: Pinball represents the struggle against the inevitablity of gravity, an allegory of life in its inevitable struggle against death. There you go, we found some depth to Pinball. lrrBEEJ
Raiz0k: See also: Doom.
azureHaights: Just wish I had friends to play the versus table with
LurkerSpine: @azureHaights That music has not left my brain in almost 30 years
mapguru: I am not a fan of pinball only because my wife is way better at it then me. But I don’t mind loosing to her at it.
xantos69: I am glad you two are having fun. When I play pinball I get so salty that pure NaCl could take lessons. (Possibly because I am trash at it)
adamalprime: 16 Bit Console late '80's early '90's... TurboGraphix 16. Alien Crush and Devil's Crush, pinball cartridge games, sitting in my closet right now...
azureHaights: Also, I'd love to see Pinball Quest with more modern, non-wonky physics
ContingentCat: it has to be hammer time
Raiz0k: @RandomTrivia : please no. You're giving out postmodernists bait. They're like piranhas, only piranhas actually contribute to the ecosystem by excreting something useful to others.

Coyoteofthenine: Ball Physics is the name of my death metal band
Raiz0k: Sorry if this was answered before on the stream (missed the start), but are the frame lags a part of the game's mechanic, or an artifact of the stream?
TehAmelie: i appreciate the committment to chaos but i kind of miss seeing the whole game screen where we can see how well everything is going

MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: I do love that Talking Simulator is the "deep analysis" show... and the common words/phrases being used today are: No! Yes! What?!
CaptainSpam: @Raiz0k Artifact of Cam streaming it to Discord.
Raiz0k: OK, now I see it, the frame lag is on the CAMERON VIEW only.
Raiz0k: Yup, thx CaptainSpam.
TehAmelie: you can't really think critically about the game before you have invested yourself in playing it
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: :)
TehAmelie: lrrAWESOME
Coyoteofthenine: why when the game start is Aslan in a Hannibal Lecter mask
DeM0nFiRe: I was actually thinking the music reminds me of another pinball table, Black Knight 2000 (the main theme of which gets played a lot at GDQs)
CaptainSpam: Black Knight 2000's music is SO good.
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah
Coyoteofthenine: is it a Aslan 50 shades of furry thing??
Loonatic93: "Stand against the devil!" (While playing Pinball.)
RaklarLS: Devil Crash! That's the Genesis game this reminds me of
Raiz0k: @Coyoteofthenine : preeeettyy sure that's a chimera.
RaklarLS: crush*
Loonatic93: I believe this is a spirtual successor to Devil Crush.
Raiz0k: Look at the sides.
Coyoteofthenine: okay so 50 shades of mythic furry
Wywin: flipLflip flipDrain flipRflip
RaklarLS: yeah, even the songs evoke the same feeling
xantos69: Who built this!?!?!???!
TehAmelie: why don't we simply brick up those hioles
TehAmelie: holes
ContingentCat: to cause problems for you two personally
Loonatic93: But it has a high level of Hot Topic energy to this.
vellebastet: sykLaugh
Raiz0k: I mean, at least some Zeus myths are nominally "furry".
CaptainSpam: Oh, huh, DeadFlip has a Twitch stream. NEat.
HundreydAundre: Pinball should generally have a 'foul' zone that you can rebound off of.
Coyoteofthenine: Zeus would hump anything he could caught
jdkirkham03: hot yoga with metal rock as the soothing music in 8 bit form
Taylorton147: zeus would hump a stone if it had tits
TehAmelie: off the top of my head, Zeus has transformed himself into a snake, a swan, a woman and a fog for sex stuff
TehAmelie: not at the same time. . .i think
HundreydAundre: You'll be penalized yes. But the point would be to keep Us playing.
PaperDoopliss: What's the objective of this table? Stick balls in the priestess' head and bully the furry on top?
RandomTrivia: Not if you're a dog
xantos69: balls lost?
jdkirkham03: going to get your balls cut off.
RandomTrivia: That could be occult pinball OR a vet
xantos69: Look one is bad, but all is worse.
Coyoteofthenine: 50 shades would have been a much better book if it was about Zeus
Coyoteofthenine: please world don't write that book
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : as a European, I must protest you forgot one animal.
TehAmelie: fortunately the title Love and Thunder is already taken
CastleOtranto: I have never heard of this game before, but I somehow immediately want to play it.
Loonatic93: I don't think blood should be coming out of there.
Coyoteofthenine: LOL
HundreydAundre: Does 'game' have a response?
Raiz0k: If you hit it hard enough, it does. Or so I'm told.
crystalbravest: oh this looks rad
TehAmelie: !advice
LRRbot: Cleanse the Merry-Go-Round horse object of power.
TehAmelie: well that's just uncannily on target
Coyoteofthenine: Cam dropped the ball
Raiz0k: Oh wow, it is.
niccus: that's what people call it nowadays, having a hardcore ball count
CAKHost: Mini Cam View!
ky0dar: *looks in*... are we talking simming a pinball game?
TehAmelie: is this the fabled sub-table?
Mangledpixel: rotate the screens 90° and they'll fit nicely :p
Azralorne: could you make the cameron view words tinier too?
Coyoteofthenine: I will call you Pocket Cam
Azralorne: <3

CaptainSpam: I assume the thing in the lower-right is the tilt indicator?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Thankfully the NES was released when I was 10
CAKHost: I used a whole roll of quarters to get a bunch of plastic gems because I realized I could
Loonatic93: I did play during that time! I actually participated in official pinball tournaments and everything!
Coyoteofthenine: Claw Games are why my @ year old ha three boes of stuffed animals
CAKHost: That was enough for me
TehAmelie: i spent like ten dollars beating Time Crisis 2 once. so stressful
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: Ya, nevermind I was very wrong. :)
Laserbeaks_Fury: And we spent all our money renting games instead of arcade cabinets
Coyoteofthenine: 2 year ols*
codatski: It was my grandpa who owned the arcade. He would take quarters out from the machines and just hand them to me and friends. I thought I had a lot of friends growing up, but I actually just had several freeloaders lol
Tiber727: Like I said, I grew up in bars. Pinball games became one of the best games because the skill carries over to other pinball games, and if you're good enough you can play forever.
CastleOtranto: And now I own this game. All is right with the world.
TheExactSame: neat.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Once I caught an owner collecting the quarters from their machines and that added like 25 credits to all the machines for us
TheExactSame: is this like a modern pinball quest?
Laserbeaks_Fury: *they added
LurkerSpine: I'm thinking of building a vertical digital pinball machine for my house
Juliamon: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
CaptainSpam: Yeah.
Tiber727: The saddest day of my life was getting the top score and then learning that they reset the scores.
Ominouslyominous: My partner's mom used to be a pinball repair person and would just run a quarter through machines for him while she was working so he got to play gmes.

CaptainSpam: I'd given thought before to actually buying a pinball table, but then I realized I don't think I've got room in my apartment, and also they can be nightmares to maintain.
Tiber727: @Mysticman89 The things it does differently are having 3 boards on top of each other, bullets that deflect your ball, and bosses to beat. But overall, what you see is what you get.
TehAmelie: did some physics professor ever really launch a pinball at the perfect angle to get it bouncing between bumpers forever or is that an urban legend?
LurkerSpine: @CaptainSpam some of the older ones are also fire hazards! :D
Tiber727: But personally, one of the best pinball games you can get is Timeshock.
Wywin: @TehAmelie I can't say I've heard of the story, but that can 100% happen on a real game, provided minimal vibration. The coils will eventually catch fire though :P
Blasteg: Demon Tilt sure is Tilting eh
Mysticman89: fair enough. Wasn't sure if maybe there was some persistent rpg elements or something, although i dunno what they'd do
TehAmelie: well, can't fight entropy
Tiber727: They're not using it, but an important thing in this game is that you can tilt the table an unlimited number of times, but if you do it too much in a short period you die.
Raiz0k: @LurkerSpine : so about 1m? Ah, so, you're actually building it out out of discrete components? I assumed it was like a display/projector thing. If so, more power to you!
TehAmelie: once you start tilting, it never ends until you go too far. in my experience
djalternative: Cam is currently summoning a deamon to play pinball for him
LurkerSpine: @Raiz0k no, definitely just doing emulation lol
gawag_: missed opportunity to call it "Cam cam"

TehAmelie: Cori said on hardcore mode you can unlock sub-tables, clearly that's the mark of pinball wizardry if i ever heard of one
Wywin: there's a reason pinball machines are often found in bars :)
Raiz0k: Up to some point, it is :).
floki4242: I feel the rich history of pinball machines in pool halls and bars suggested is

vellebastet: sykLaugh
TehAmelie: robbed!
Chrysoprase: Cameron/Cory, Did you two ever do Hellblade: Senua's sacrifice? It is a couple of years old but a friend of mine played it and it is a exploration of psychosis in a horrorgame. It is really good.
RandomTrivia: Noooooo!
gravity_pike: those side gutters; i hate them with my life
RaklarLS: less flailing, more tilting
TehAmelie: someone definitely streamed Hellblade when it came out. i wanna say Paul?
Mysticman89: games with actual mental health people getting front and center credit are definitely neat
CaptainSpam: I mean, that's the strategy to most any pinball table: Though learning the universal basics of pinball control is one thing, you just gotta learn how the table "flows", per se. Ramp A can lead to Orbit B, etc.

Raiz0k: Just came from passively listening, and very disappointed by the lack of ball puns in the chat.
TehAmelie: we went balls deep on puns early on
Raiz0k: Ah, so everyone's spent.
TehAmelie: maybe a bit of premature joculation
Raiz0k: :D
RomanGoro: I assume Cameron realizes that by saying that someone is going to go trough the VoD, register the results and plot them
KeytarCat: So arcana AND zodiac?

djalternative: I mean, I also had to do push ups in front of the girls, but only because everyone was doing push ups together
RomanGoro: That's awful, my first university teacher told us to argue with him anytime we thought he was wrong, because he knew that in that argument we'd figure it out ourselves
Raiz0k: @Laserbeaks_Fury : were you living in an Ayn Rand novel?
azureHaights: But what if the real choices we made along the way were the friends we made along the way?
TehAmelie: our math teacher liked to play us in soccer. with half the class against him it was a pretty even match
xantos69: Those memories are coded deep within little Cam.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Nope, just Florida
Raiz0k: @matthaus_c : the "defeat" laugh is pretty much on point.
RomanGoro: Turns out most other branches of knowledge don't teach like that and so you end up labeled as "having an attitude"
Azralorne: playing an arcade game will do that to ya

Lysander_Gustav: Hello everyone!
Lysander_Gustav: Oh, pinball!
TehAmelie: this doesn't feel like the sort of game where you get a mercy ball if you lose before you have touched a flipper, but if so it seems you could score some cheap points that way
matthaus_c: hello @Lysander_Gustav benginHi
Lysander_Gustav: This looks stylish. Is this a multiplayer game?
TehAmelie: not even in multiball, i fear
RandomTrivia: Another authentic Pinball experience!
Lord_ZYRK: Cori needs an assistant with a sponge to mop her brow

azureHaights: Did they just turn into Graham's detective from Drugs Drugs Drugs?
Lord_ZYRK: I dunno, these tunes make it feel more like the Demon Tower of pinball games
Lysander_Gustav: I feel this has a really arcane way to unlock multiball mode

electric_claire: Pinball predates Rogue by 220 years
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: arcade games are meant to be hard, quick, addictive, and eat through your coins
djalternative: several decades. pinball was originally an almost entirely rigged casino game
SurfDownstage: I think it's a pretty standard arcade style
Raiz0k: Yeah, pinballs are def. some sort of precursor.
Loonatic93: 2 Cold Scorpio Ramp?
SurfDownstage: Rogue is an arcade game
matthaus_c: is a Pinball a calzone
djalternative: they were outlawed in new york for quite some time
Lysander_Gustav: I am sorely tempted to buy this game
Pinwiz11: Oh, I will be buying this game
Pinwiz11: Maybe not today, but I will
electric_claire: Even if you limit pinball just to the kind with flippers pinball is ~90 years old
TehAmelie: nobody shoots my ball except me! wait

xantos69: That is how I always feel playing pinball.
Lord_ZYRK: It's not narrative, and yet you two haven't ran out of things to say about it
CAKHost: It's an auto play that occasionally fails
LurkerSpine: Speaking of arcade games, has anyone played Killer Queen? I've been really wanting to play that one for years
Lord_ZYRK: even if those things are mostly "eat shit" and "WHY"
TehAmelie: i recall something Brian Bendis said about getting angry and not realizing how much fun you're having
Lysander_Gustav: there is so much going on, visually
CaptainSpam: @LurkerSpine Killer Queen is good stuff, though you kinda need ten people to play it.
Juliamon: Now I just want to research the divergent evolutions of pinball and pachinko.
Lysander_Gustav: so many things for the eye to be distracted by
TheMandrew: you guys need to really stop playing games that are in my wheelhouse and also affordable
LurkerSpine: @CaptainSpam oof 10 people
Lord_ZYRK: Cameron has achieved an emotional response :O
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: is pinball a tragedy

RandomTrivia: You can see that something will happen, but only while it is happening do you realise that it's bad and you did it
vellebastet: Ah yes, pinball
RandomTrivia: And that it's too late
TehAmelie: but unlike chess you're fighting against the wet machinery of your own body
CaptainSpam: @LurkerSpine Well, that's what it was designed for. Two teams, five players each (one Killer Queen, four worker bears).

CAKHost: Do you ever think that the creators of this ritual stopped themselves to think "Why do it like this?" but then kept doing it anyways.
vellebastet: She started crying blood at one point. Don't know what that means, really
Lysander_Gustav: I hope they someday do a remastered version of Metroid Pinball
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : it's seems that Cam's synopsis on "going too far" is mostly correct then.

Bearudite: is the beer making it BETTER or WORSE?
TehAmelie: now, i made this for Dark Souls but it's really just as applicable here https://i.imgur.com/8gMM9fz.gif

matthaus_c: beautiful @TehAmelie
RandomTrivia: Uh oh
matthaus_c: cat angy
TehAmelie: :)
Lysander_Gustav: I am sure there is some precursor to polybius that involves a possessed pinball machine

matthaus_c: I would just blast PJ Harvey on stage
Lysander_Gustav: There's something to be said about when people try to make games as "hardcore" as the arcade versions, when they're designed to be horribly unfair in order to get people to pump more quarters into it.
CaptainSpam: Now I'm imagining someone going out and performing to the hourly NPR news update...

CaptainSpam: This also sounds like mid-90s pinball table music, so it's got that going for it.
Raiz0k: : I'm under the impression it was "in five AhMeRiCaN" units.
Lysander_Gustav: I would prefer a game that embraces the nostalgia but doesn't make me want to chew through my keyboard
Raiz0k: (as in, five minutes)
Raiz0k: Yeah, the game is really something re the interface scope.
Lysander_Gustav: At least in the real world you are limited by the amount of quarters. In a virtual pinball game designed to be relentlessly unfair, you aren't limited by that and so the frustration is possibly increased.
Lysander_Gustav: Though once I get into the gaming zone I tend to be so dialed in that I stop talking or paying attention to anything else, and that probably isn't great for streamer interactivity
floki4242: you made that up
vellebastet: Hullo

noSmokeFire: it's 2021: let video games eat ass
Lysander_Gustav: is this more aggrivating than Odama?
CaptainSpam: @Lysander_Gustav Yes, there were numerous pinball "controllers" back in the day. I'm not sure what you'd consider "official", though.

Loonatic93: Aoewin, Arwen... Same diff.
RandomTrivia: The sword was made of Lemons
TehAmelie: getting a sword shoved in your face has to feel like an icecream headache
TehAmelie: it's going to be cold, right
Koshindan: What if getting a sword shoved in your face is the cure to an ice cream headache?
Raiz0k: Come to think of it, it literally does probably.
TheMandrew: it's a sour candy you just can't stop sucking on
Koshindan: Just need a hole to let the cold out.
Bearudite: isn't there a theory that Tom Bombadil IS the Witch King?
Taylorton147: @Bearudite aint he a little short
ContingentCat: clearly there is a soul of a cat inside the pinball mechine
Dread_Pirate_Westley: The problem is your microphone is feeding out to Twitch instead of to the game. Fix that and when you tell it no, it might listen. Probably makes the show a bit worse for us, though.
KeytarCat: The voice reminds me of the hedge witch in Momodora 4
Lysander_Gustav: well, now I hope someone makes a Rogue-lite version of pinball, with abilities and effects and a storyline that carries over though your plays
CaptainSpam: Ball locked, Cam. That's a good thing.
CaptainSpam: Well, okay, in the best case scenario, it leads to utter chaos, but still a good-ish thing.

resilientspring: I killed a lot of hours back in the day on that free pinball game that came on windows... didn't even occur to me to check for modern versions!
I_Am_Clockwork: guuh the nostalgia
Lysander_Gustav: There was this one pinball game I played that let you unlock different kinds of balls, that had different weights and special effects on the board.
Raiz0k: It's almost as if pinball is not the most perfect metaphor for everything?
Lysander_Gustav: Or maybe it's a brick-breaking Arkanoid variant that I'm thinking about

Raiz0k: @Lysander_Gustav : Arkanoid is essentially "brick:breaking"
sithenin: Can you catch with the bumpers in this game?

Mysticman89: yes but now he has slaves in the afterlife or something
floki4242: it's bonkers
resilientspring: I arrived late, what is the bouncy demon head on a chain in the bottom right corner box thing?
Raiz0k: @resilientspring : I believe that's called "Cam's sanity"
Bearudite: this is a talking simulation and the sim is broken
TehAmelie: "because you have never used them before"

azureHaights: goodbye cori
Taylorton147: f
fragilepaper: ^
RandomTrivia: Behold as a human soul leaves its vessel
sithenin: Do the bumpers stay lifted as long as you hold the button or only stay up for a limited amount of time?
azureHaights: Welcome back Cori
Bearudite: the juxtaposition of "I can't remember the last time I had this much fun playing a game" and screams of abject suffering and anguish really sells this for me
TabbyLavalamp: Ever since they were two young kids They've played the silver ball From Edmonton to BC They must have played 'em all We ain't seen nothing like them In any amusement hall That Cori and that Cameron Sure play a mean pinball
Raiz0k: You know, as much as I vicariously enjoy the players having fun, we've pretty much reached peak entertainment, which makes me ask: what's the point of this stream (in terms of covering this specific game), except for hiscore?
ewhac: Even given Cam's view is choppy, I can't fathom how he can track the ball.
KeytarCat: This is not one of those times
RandomTrivia: Today we remember that it's important to enjoy playing games.
Juliamon: The thin line between "fun" and "frustrating"
vellebastet: I'm quite entertained.
azureHaights: @Juliamon Frunstrating
Robot_Bones: the real talking sim is the game we played along the way
chaostreader: !point
LRRbot: If you came here hoping for there to be a point to this, I have bad news for you.
RandomTrivia: Is there a line here? I think we're in the big middle section of the Venn diagram there
ContingentCat: the hammer giveth and he hammer taketh away
ewhac: "Will. You. Challenge. The. Black. Knight. Again?"
xantos69: I'll ask this question. If pinball is so obviously frustrating, why was it so wildly successful?
Juliamon: Competition.
Juliamon: People want to be "the best" at something. Sometimes that thing can be a pinball table.
TehAmelie: and, the simplest games are the most addictive
resilientspring: I think there's also something interesting about it being low stakes to just try again? Kind of a gambling thing, almost. "this time, I'll get it!"
sithenin: I never played pinball for competition. I enjoy them even if they are frustrating. aka Dark Souls
Mysticman89: also theres likely a curiousity aspect 'what happens if i do finally spell that word?' etc.
ewhac: Oh, absolutely! The whole reason I got into computers in the first place was to make the lights blink.
vellebastet: From what I've gathered, this game is strikingly simplistic for how captivating it is. I believe it does a great job of capturing the essence of pinball in this way.
Dandinstorm12: how's the pinball chat
Raiz0k: That is a valid point, except now I'm now worried about Cam...
Taylorton147: cori is going to do it!
Taylorton147: 10 mil!
Taylorton147: NICE NICE NICE

GredGredmansson: you got this Cam!
ewhac: L'oeuf.
niccus: physics in game dev is hell, and it takes too much effort to make pinball feel good
winona_queen: Cam is an egg, ready to hatch
ewhac: A spherical egg of uniform density...
Raiz0k: There she goes, deprecating her skills again.
KeytarCat: So more like a spore?
Raiz0k: @Cori: I understood that reference!
xantos69: Bumpers go BRRRRRRRRR!
niccus: oh, maybe you need 144hz before your skill gets unlocked
sithenin: I wasn't here at the start, did they talk about space cadet pinball any?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: of all the people I'd expect to win competions, I'd have probably pegged it at Wheeler to do it as a joke. Then I'd have gone for Cori to do it seriously
Raiz0k: Huh, yeah, Wheeler is lokey skilled, but Cori prob gets it done.
niccus: mmm countertop nachos
Raiz0k: wat
TehAmelie: maybe a run of Hades
xantos69: Big Same. That game is amazing.
