Juliamon: TheMerricat Both?
TheMerricat: looks like it was just quiet :)
Juliamon: Maybe even neither

PixelArtDragon: Smash cut to a bleached white skeleton
DeM0nFiRe: That sounds like something that would happen in naked gun, but idk if that actually did happen in naked gun

RealGamerCow: That sounds like a highlander thing
TheMerricat: we watched that on BNF!!!

Juliamon: That got used for a Boards of Canada thing
niccus: so, video games
noSmokeFire: protect the orbs

JohnLockeCole: Billiard Shakespeare, Squash this Nasty Fur Ball
Raiz0k: Nah, we're fine with your fortress built out of consonants, thank you very much Blakisis.
mizzytastic: this reminds me graphically a lot of Dicey Dungeons

BlackIsis: Is this just peggle with...dwarves?
RealGamerCow: Has Talking Sim ever done Rollers of the realm? It's a pinball RPG
PixelArtDragon: @noSmokeFire Peggle already is for nerds!
Raiz0k: ^what they said :D
djalternative: I do love that the guy was named Gol but when his buddy saw him writing down his full legal name on a form, he was like, "What? You're name's Gold now. I don't care what you say. I'm calling you Gold from now until forever"
Raiz0k: Must have been a Pratchettian dwarf.
Garfman314: are there different playable classes?

JadedCynic: peggle where we're launching OURSELVES
RealGamerCow: Oh we slayin the spire now
SacrificialToast: Peggle the Spire
Earthenone: seems like the typical rouge lite map

CleeKru: there is a little part of "Freude schöner götterfunken" in the end melody
CleeKru: it's very wierd
Earthenone: !card reckless charge
LRRbot: Reckless Charge [R] | Sorcery | Target creature gets +3/+0 and gains haste until end of turn. / Flashback {2}{R}
innovativemethods: There's no enemies left to charge to, recklessly.
Taveena: Wait, so... you lose health when you hit the spikes, but when ELSE do you lose health?
NonUniqueGuy: So if you want to go right, aim left and if you want to go left, aim right it seems
TehAmelie: the Ode to Joy shows up in some strange places. like in reconstructed music from 20,000 years ago
RandomTrivia: "Reckless Charge" or "Another nickname for the US healthcare system"
Earthenone: we are losing health on contact with enemies
RandomTrivia: Kappa

Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : essentially we'll always got back to "Four Cords", or the historically equivalent, available instrumental composition.
JadedCynic: Slay the Peggle?
Raiz0k: Oh no.
PixelArtDragon: Hey, maybe the spire's into that
elah806: Isn't Peg the Spire just Mighty Jill Off?
CleeKru: the music is actually killing me
Raiz0k: No spire shaming.
RandomTrivia: Remember to get the Spire's consent first, kids

JadedCynic: welp
RandomTrivia: Game says no, apparently
spicyFerret_: @frnknstn bought by EA and well, EA
Ignatiuspants: I think Popcap was bought by EA and then shut down ... yeah
Juliamon: EA happened to them
NonUniqueGuy: Health is a resource
Taveena: I mean, aren't you more shotgunning? WE'RE backseating.
JadedCynic: 'we could take some health'
Raiz0k: More like sitting in the peanut gallery.
CAKHost: Somewhere, Ian feels a disturbance in the...game...with the ball and pegs...
innovativemethods: Your health goes down if you hit the spikes, so your life meter is shared between enemies and the spikes.
ritchards: as long as you have health, you can go
Taveena: I'm... GUESSING the only failstate is running out of health?
CAKHost: I can't remember what it was called ;n;
Earthenone: good philosophy
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does that include the spike hits?
Tangsm: You have leveled up your beard.
Raiz0k: @CAKHost : ...he starts whispering: not again, not again.... next thing will be 8 crates".
innovativemethods: @Laserbeaks_Fury No, the spikes are the last thing, so it doesn't count.
Ignatiuspants: The fantasy adventure flavor in this game would be improved with better music
RandomTrivia: That was impressive
RandomTrivia: sergeIntoTheSea
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh it's a per shot thing
Raiz0k: On an anti-roll apparently.
CAKHost: It was from Shenmue 3
Raiz0k: Yeah, hence the crate reference.
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh that posion is bad
Raiz0k: I think he mentioned what it was called.

Earthenone: !advice
LRRbot: Make the arrows happy.
Raiz0k: Yup, can confirm after a somewhat-risky search.
RealGamerCow: It's my right to take myself by the horns!
Raiz0k: (that it was Lucky Hit)
CAKHost: But what if I need to take off my horns, Cori?
JadedCynic: but...we only have 30 mana max, and charge uses ten...
Earthenone: i assume we need to hit a mana pot mid fall
Taveena: Calculated.
Juliamon: JadedCynic Refill potions
innovativemethods: Gives them bleed.
CAKHost: I also got the crate reference too, @Raiz0k. Though I remember that bring joy to Ian
Earthenone: as long as they are bleeding their own blood

DAC169: @codatski happy birthday! aipOMG
Raiz0k: @CAKHost : yeah, that hit the highlights. Probably the most that game brought anyone authentic joy ;).
JadedCynic: @Juliamon in mid-'bounce' - because that was five charges IN ONE 'bounce'
CAKHost: Happy Birthday @codatski and @Juliamon!

Raiz0k: Just like IRL.
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
noSmokeFire: glavin!
JadedCynic: daed
Raiz0k: So, who was saying this char is more powerful?
libraryrulesrule: yes rogue
JadedCynic: lrrGREED
noSmokeFire: we had single jump??
JadedCynic: do what you know...
Ignatiuspants: that sounds kind of like a dodge roll
Tangsm: Rogues don't follow laws, including physics.
ArcOfTheConclave: you jump, then you jump again
RandomTrivia: That seems very useful
Raiz0k: Yes, first we "jump" from the scorpion.
JadedCynic: @noSmokeFire well, more like 'single shot' ;)
Dmc3628: and now the game BEGINS
RandomTrivia: Welp

libraryrulesrule: akwood?

InquisitorGaia: goat!
Ignatiuspants: I've realized a difference between this game and Peggle ... Peggle shows you where your ball will bounce after hitting the first thing
noSmokeFire: noat!
libraryrulesrule: oh, thoughtslime talked about that comic
Raiz0k: Oh, the "sad dog" webcomic.
DAC169: can still skip a level this way
niccus: isn't the starting trail the power of the starting unicorn in peggle?
DAC169: "tap dat ass"?
JadedCynic: Cori - don't know why I never noticed before, but you have a fantastic laugh - thank you for sharing with us like this! :D lrrHEART
Juliamon: "The trapped souls of past rogues" yikes
Juliamon: Kinda!!
JadedCynic: 'stop hitting him - he's already DEAD!" :D
Raiz0k: @Xaunaught : pretty the consensus, yes :).
RandomTrivia: Worth a try LUL
JadedCynic: I don't know Slay the Spire much, but people are saying it's "Peggle meets Slay the Spire" aka "Slay the Peggle"? (WARNING: do NOT try mixing the titles the OTHER way; it's no beuno)
Taveena: Literally lrrGOAT there.
Raiz0k: Given the consistent HP drop, it feels like we're missing something.
Raiz0k: (or again, a symptom of a mobile port)
DAC169: somehow I knew you'd have to use double jump to get in there
Dandinstorm12: too many cooks?

plummeting_sloth: a munnel, if you will
JadedCynic: @CaptainSpam Narrator: "subsequent events showed that statement to be in error"
Dmc3628: i'd imagine so
JadedCynic: hmm..........
Raiz0k: :D
Raiz0k: Probably not.
Taveena: Wouldn't the pressure make the gold MORE solid?
niccus: only when scrooge gets really rowdy
Dandinstorm12: surely not
Dmc3628: then again i don't know enough about thermodynamic chemistry
noSmokeFire: scrooge mcduck is terrifyingly powerful
plummeting_sloth: not that it would bother him, the duck can withstand hitting a pile of solid metal
Laserbeaks_Fury: Just the shear gravitational weight
Ignatiuspants: I mean, he can swim in it, so the density of the gold vault must be incredibly low
vegetalss4: A cubic hectare? I wouldn't think so, that's not that much in geological scales.
Raiz0k: @Taveena : from a certain point, yes.
RandomTrivia: Melting point of Gold is 1337K (never knew this before, nice)
RandomTrivia: Probably not warm enough
plummeting_sloth: what is the triple point of scrooge mcduck
JadedCynic: leet Kelvin
naThanathos: But at what pressure?
Manae: I enjoyed in the new Duck Tales that he specifically mentions swimming in coins was an acquired skill that took years of learning
RandomTrivia: I assume that's one atmosphere
TehAmelie: elite Kelvins. how fancy
Raiz0k: But it's the melting point at standard pressure, right?
niccus: i imagine the bottom of the money pit is all dented coins, gold is way too soft
TehAmelie: but what does the melting point of gold really mean? it's extremely pliable at room temperature
KeirenH: melting temp would be higher at higher pressure, right
vegetalss4: Unless I'm wrong about how much a hectare is or how deep you need to go into the earth before stuff starts melting.
JadedCynic: it makes me wonder if they set the Kelvin temperature scale to just get that meme?
Laserbeaks_Fury: State your name, occupation, and creature type
TehAmelie: noo iKelvin's based on the freezing and boiling point of water adjusted for absolite zero
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : just the transition point from solid to liquid. Malleability is another thing. Welcome to the materials science rabbit hole :).
Raiz0k: (and yes, malleability changes with temperature)
RandomTrivia: Further Google-fu suggests it is at 1bar, with melting point increasing with pressure as expected
TehAmelie: just an amazing coincidence on the level of absolute zero temperature in Celcius being almost equal to the height of the world's tallest man in centimeters
TehAmelie: (but negative)
JadedCynic: @vegetalss4 hectare is a unit of area, like an acre - so 'cubic hectare' wouldn't work, but you'd go back to a hectare being x metres by x metres and say "<x^3> cubic metres"
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : probably o complete coincidence, since the major limiting factor is gravity.
TehAmelie: i mean if you say a cubic hectare people who know how long the side of a hectare is will know what you mean
plummeting_sloth: can't believe they brought back mana burn
vegetalss4: @JadedCynic it might not be entirely accurate, but it is was the comic books canonically says the size of the money bin is, and it isn't really something that. (sometimes with a made up big number name for how much money he has)

InquisitorGaia: scarab moved
Raiz0k: Scarab? Necons?!
JadedCynic: that hurts more than just missing it by a huge amount
Garfman314: the scarab makes me think of the cave of wonders finder from Aladdin
JadedCynic: I think the Cushion is your REAL nemesis...
JadedCynic: oooo, that sounds POWERFUL
JohnLockeCole: So much more base damage
DiscordianTokkan: That's a LOT of damage
noSmokeFire: this is fine :x
Raiz0k: It does, but it looks more like "necessarily re-balance of a «hard» character".
TehAmelie: that's a solid Tiny Dancer parody
TehAmelie: why hasn't Weird Al done it?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Hold me close, Tony Danza
Raiz0k: Yeah, so maybe not kill him?

djalternative: some sort of stylized *
gamercat88: @TehAmelie how about ;
TehAmelie: asterisks, i like it
SoldieroFortune: "M" with a horizontal line through it?

djalternative: I def haven't studied economics quite a bit and designed complex multi-currency systems
TehAmelie: i do like the Phi
wildpeaks: "the sky inferno" sounds like a delightful place
Raiz0k: Yeah, so depends on tech level. The symbols you mention are relatively modern. If it's a fantasy world, you usually wouldn't even have a mark.
TehAmelie: it's sort of like the green inferno, but it's ground and water mixed together
Earthenone: ¤ is used to denote unspecified currency, if you want to be accurate and weird
jamesk902: Alternatively, you could use a 3-letter code as is used in international finance, something like MAR or MRK
Raiz0k: If it's a mark, it's probably going to be coopted from something most people recognize - so from spirituality.religion.
Raiz0k: (sorry, that dot was supposed to be a / )
Blue_Anteater: Most sci-fi worlds don't use symbols either, usually they just say "credits."
Juliamon: An alchemical symbol, maybe
TehAmelie: better stop the brainstorming
TheMrFraser: if they are 'Marks" why not an Italicized N with a strike through that closes the whole thing off into a funky looking M
djalternative: nah. more econ talk. always more econ talk
TehAmelie: but thanks for playing along chat
Raiz0k: Thanks for sharing with us :).
Luminaire_p: neat idea
JadedCynic: I mean, HARDCORE 'Rogue-like' would have us just starting over from scratch; Rogue itself really didn't have ANYTHING to do with this 'growing from previous attempts' mechanic at ALL

Earthenone: aww we need to try and land on a book to get frogs back
rasterscan: Ben murdered a -lot- of people./
Juliamon: We're playing Fantasy Peggle!
floataway3: We were getting silly with some tainted grail
JadedCynic: we're enjoying a mix of peggle and 'slay the spire' - a "Slay The Peggle" roguelike if you will (please do not mix the titles the OTHER way, that way lies no bueno :( )
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Impress the ladies with your alpaca knowledge.
Jean_Jacques_EB: Hi Cameron, Have you played the Vampire the Masquerade visual novels? if not, could they be considered as candidates for talking simulator?
floataway3: So how is this so far? I have really wanted to find something to scratch my peggle itch
astronomifier97: its a gelatinous cube!
JadedCynic: @floataway3 I'd say it would satisfyingly scratch that itch
TehAmelie: good ol jelly cube, so rarely represented
Raiz0k: For a reason, probably :D.
floataway3: Ah, it even still plays Ode to Joy when you complete!
JadedCynic: I mean, it always ends with good ol' "Ode to Joy" <3
Raiz0k: "Ode.... Ode never changes"
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
RandomTrivia: One might say "Ode dear..."
TehAmelie: good news for Peggle-gios or whatever we're calling enthusiasts of the genre, there's a Peggle pag currenlty on sale on Steam for 1.50 euros
JadedCynic: jelly cube was even trying to help us - slow our descent... ah well lrrAWW
TehAmelie: *pack
RandomTrivia: LUL
TehAmelie: "pag" sounds vaguely dirty but i can't figure out how
Raiz0k: I'm thinking how's that going to smell after a few days.....
djalternative: Mark Rober made a video on that concept
geldaran: neither as easy or fun as it sounds.
ContingentCat: and it would just freeze here
JadedCynic: wow, that peggle pack is also priced at $1.50 cdn even!
JohnLockeCole: Getting that much Jello to set into a consistant Surface would actually be a significant engineering problem
djalternative: Turns out, you need an actual engineering degree to fill a pool with Jello
JohnLockeCole: it *can* be done, however
floataway3: $1.48 American, comes with deluxe and nights! Easy pickup
Raiz0k: Oooh, nice, some currency parity.
jonnykefka: is this...puzzle quest peggle? I'm intrigued
noSmokeFire: and unliving beings!
Benevum: There is a dude on youtube who did one deep enough to swim in in his back yard. It ended up kind of liquefying once the sun came out though
IncredibleFrown: we take those
RandomTrivia: Huh.
JadedCynic: @jonnykefka I don't know Slay The Spire at all, but people are saying it's a good mix of Peggle and that - a 'Slay the Peggle' roguelike if you will?
geldaran: I think Mark rober did it orecently..
DiscordianTokkan: lrrSACK lrrSACK
geldaran: you just have to layer it.
Benevum: @geldaran Yeah that's teh one I was thinking of
Raiz0k: @Benevum : so did he actually swim before that, or kind of flopped around?
RandomTrivia: Forg!
GhostValv: :O
Raiz0k: Noooooooo
Juliamon: bye bugs
Mister_Hush: you sure did
geldaran: it was more like a dull tud.
Earthenone: lightning can get effed anyways
noSmokeFire: it's peggle with slay the spire's map, basically. StS is a deckbuilding, turn-based RPG roguelike.

Raiz0k: @JadedCynic : keep an even footing, even.
JohnLockeCole: the thing that causes bloodlike hearts? Bone marrow?
JadedCynic: @noSmokeFire I get the vibe that we get that on future Mage runs - like the Rogue now has that 'anti-mana burn' item...
ImmortalLen: This is the weirdest Rouge Lite I've seen yet... I love it!
SpoonfullOfSugar: You know what? Spider Butt

Loonatic93: I find the game just so very charming. Silly puns, no need for dark edgy stuff.
GhostValv: yay?
CaptainSpam: That wheel reminds me of Dicey Dungeons in a way. Kappa
noSmokeFire: wheel of futility, turn turn turn
CAKHost: I've seen a few videos on tumblr of dogs turning around when they heard the line "turn around" in the The Vogues "Turn around, look at me" song, I think
KeytarCat: No horny bulls, please
CAKHost: At least I think it is that song
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : had the exact same conversation at least thrice over the last 15 years, so speaks of the Baha Boys ability to induce cognitive dissonance really.
CAKHost: Don't know how many songs have "turn around" as part of its lyrics :T
Loonatic93: I feel that this game has some incredibly sincere corniness.
Raiz0k: Or, again ,a mobile port.
Raiz0k: Except it's too involved. So a something what rose from a mobile game's ashes?
Raiz0k: Or a mobile game pastiche?

JadedCynic: I mean, green Jelly Cube just weakens us....maybe red eats our health?
Earthenone: red always makes you go faster
Raiz0k: Yeah, sounds on point @Juliamon .
Loonatic93: @LoadingReadyRun Before you launch, you can use the Right Trigger to make the cubes move faster.
TehAmelie: would you rather fight: a gelatinous cube or a rust monster?
Raiz0k: Or even had the game greenlighted as a mobile game with the view it would go beyoned that.
SoapyMarmoset: This looks like peggle? I love peggle
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie am I a monk or a paladin
TehAmelie: no, you're just you
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : the latter, and anything but a digester.
CaptainSpam: No lrrGOAT .
LathosTiran: peggle had a speedup. you had to type STEVE or something
TehAmelie: i think you'd just hold the right mouse button to speed up?
KeytarCat: Maybe you are the goat\

SandwichKed: oh, that's the name of this game
SandwichKed: I saw someone doing beta on it a while back
CAKHost: Er for other sites off Twitch
JadedCynic: it came out last march on steam
Juliamon: CAKHost We appreciate asking first, go ahead
TehAmelie: mostly you have to be a known and trusted member of chat "or" provide a clear context for the link you're posting
JadedCynic: SeemsGood
CAKHost: Also I found a frog video too in case I couldn't find it. Would that be okay to post?
wildpeaks: so close
CAKHost: It's just kind of loud so warning
CastleOtranto: I have this on in the background and the soundtrack is getting to me by almost being Ode to Joy, but then not.
Juliamon: 1 is not 0
JadedCynic: @CastleOtranto it's 'borrowing' from Peggle that the round-win music is that...during the finale, and then back to normal game soundtrack
TehAmelie: hm, i haven't really noticed. and i usually love a little Ninth symphony
CaptainSpam: Yeah, I'm pretty certain the similarities to Ode to Joy are not coincidence. :)
JohnLockeCole: That's a lot more base damage
JohnLockeCole: I like base damage
JadedCynic: I mean, Ode to Joy is PD now, isn't it?
JohnLockeCole: Very Yes
Ignatiuspants: it's frustrating while watching too, because it does the thing that Peggle does, but it just kind of teases at the "Ode to Joy" without using it
Excalibur_1867_: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:00:41.
Earthenone: i havent tried, but i assume ode to joy is the first result if you google public domain music
Raiz0k: The composition itself, yes,
JadedCynic: as long as you're not using a copyrighted arrangement, you're cool
Ignatiuspants: It makes you expect a fanfare to celebrate winning and then there isn't one, really
JohnLockeCole: Everything Beethoven Wrote was public Domain over a hundred years ago--- now, Specific performances/recordings may be copyrighted
Raiz0k: but not necessarily every performance.
Ignatiuspants: but yeah, classic compositions (from before 1924?) are in the public domain, but recordings of performances after that aren't
TehAmelie: it is what, fifteen notes? that describe a practically univsersal sense of joy. i think it's something Beethoven more lassoed down than invented
JadedCynic: huh....I guess not knowing the work so closely is a good thing, because it's getting a 'fanfare' across to me just fine...
JadedCynic: @Raiz0k given that both Peggle and Roundguard seem to be using their own original arrangements is a good thing then?
CastleOtranto: I am now imagining a teenaged Beethoven on a horse, stalking his musical prey with a lasso.
TehAmelie: did you know? Ludwig van Beethoven was almost certainly black
wildpeaks: you paint a vivid picture

aleixa_p: thanks
CastleOtranto: @JadedCynic Nah, it was @TehAmelie 's concept
Juliamon: who ready for the DROP
Mangledpixel: "oh this computer's muteeeeeeed"
Ignatiuspants: aren't there contemporary portraits of the whole Beethoven family?
TehAmelie: all that we actually know of Beethoven's appearance from contemporary is one charcoal sketch and one offhand mention in a letter between third parties. but they suggest he was black
MostCallMe__Tim: Who agrees that the BGC remixes of LRR music is *chefs kiss) magnifique
Raiz0k: @JadedCynic : arrangements or performances? Because if it's the former, It Depends™, but if it's the latter, i.e. a performance of the original arrangement, it's fine AFAIK.
TehAmelie: *contemporary sources
noSmokeFire: hewwo
Raiz0k: There were also the archers.
RandomTrivia: That was barely a worthy pun, game. Try harder.
Earthenone: lrrSPOT
floataway3: Alright. I'm on team rogue. Our character can just go away forever for attempting that pun
JadedCynic: I mean someone made a game based on Frederic Chopin coming back from the dead for a rhythm music action adventure game, so why not "Ludwig, Music Cowpoke"? (and thus credit goes both to @CastleOtranto and @TehAmelie )
Earthenone: !quote chopin
LRRbot: Quote #1623: "Oops, off I go to Mongolia!" —Chopin [2016-01-20]
Mashamino: enigmaWheel

Getter404: Oh no... is this a Gacha now
noSmokeFire: y'know, I'm not sure but I *think* that might be a mimic
TehAmelie: i'd also credit REM who described writing "Losing My Religion" as lassoing in a higher dimensional creature

JadedCynic: lrrGOAT

TehAmelie: Jiminy Cricket is a character in this fantasy world eh
JadedCynic: @noSmokeFire yeah, I had my suspicions, but then, I'm not an Expert™ on them or anything ;)
Raiz0k: @JadedCynic : that's where you hit a sort of practical grey area, where another composer could argue that it was their arrangement you used. Public Domain is a way more messy thing than most people think (not to mention it doesn't exist in a lot of legal systems explicitly).
floataway3: Ew.

Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : and on the subject of Chopin, it's pretty certain by now that he was bi.
Earthenone: gorgon ramsey?
RebekahWSD: I like American diner style omelettes
TehAmelie: it gets real funny when you use something like the Red Army Choir's performance of the Soviet national anthem (as LRR did in a great sketch). how do you credit a vague group of people in an army of a country that doens't exist anymore?

Despoiler98: CAM Why?
JadedCynic: the Game heard you Cam - and the game likes to be a helper, just like Dale Kappa

ritchards: that's not a beholder that's a ... Behelder, legally distinct...
RebekahWSD: I've even say extremely litigious
Despoiler98: dang got owned
JadedCynic: so, kids BETTER BUY THIS GAME REAL QUICK before we get to the 'steamboat willie' level Kappa
Earthenone: beauty is in the eye of the plaintiff
Ignatiuspants: really, what constitutes copyright infringement is in the eye of the ... um ...
CAKHost: Is he sitting on the stool or just floating above it?
RandomTrivia: Huh. The different eyes even shoot different colour beams.
Getter404: I think they're going for a "Three Stooges Syndrome" strategy by getting legal threats from EVERYONE so they have to battle it out among themselves before getting to them
Raiz0k: Yeah, going off to auction off my kidneys preemptively just from seeing that.
TehAmelie: Wizards have been known to act real jealous when people steal either of the two monsters in the monster manual they made up themselves
RandomTrivia: "we can only afford to pay one of you damages so you work out which gets that" seems like not a great strategy
JadedCynic: @Getter404 yeah, I feel like we're going to see 'a mouse' soon :P
plummeting_sloth: so shocked at it's lack of lazers
floataway3: On one hand, this game seems fun, and I like the concepts they add to the Peggle formula. On the other hand, this game seems to tease very closely to some extremely litigious copyright claims...
CAKHost: Hey he closed his eye as you were trying to attack! He can't do that!
JadedCynic: @RandomTrivia worked for John Constantine ;)
Laserbeaks_Fury: You dont
noSmokeFire: but cameron, pitons
Simriel: and Borutos Dad
noSmokeFire: Boruto's Dad dissonance
Laserbeaks_Fury: chaws rooms
Loonatic93: You don't take any damage while petrified.
JadedCynic: Borat's New Assonance?
TristalMTG: I only ever think of that one scene in Simpsons whenever Boruto is mentioned: "My son is also named Boruto!"
JadedCynic: (sorry, I'm dyslexic...at first I didn't hear anything wrong with what people were saying)
noSmokeFire: fluid is just wet spikes
Mashamino: Boruto's Dad's Son's Aunts (I took it too far)
noSmokeFire: I thought our whisk protected us from spider eggs?
Juliamon: We in Golgari territory
Earthenone: its hard for me at least to tell what things we have and what things we just can have if we spin them
Juliamon: That's.... uhhhhh
Getter404: I... I can't even make a Society joke anymore. They've killed it.
ContingentCat: um?
KeytarCat: Oh, two potions
CaptinOfBeez: We live in a .... rogue lite society
niccus: wow it does 83 damage
Mashamino: wowzers
Steelwolf171: The true friends were the trademarks we infringed along the way
NarishmaReborn: that sounds like a bad saying
Dog_of_Myth: Phrasing
aleixa_p: Uhhh...
JohnLockeCole: I think hitting their axes just.. killed ouy
JohnLockeCole: you*

bentropik: oh it's a NES caertridge!
CAKHost: He looks like someone who does that...?
Dog_of_Myth: Phrasing.....part 2
floataway3: Don't blow in it!
JadedCynic: Wow
DAC169: NES cartridge!
DAC169: aipOMG
JadedCynic: toooot!
Dog_of_Myth: !y
Mashamino: @bentropik ooh, that's great idea
JadedCynic: @bentropik oh wow, a pan flute dressed up to look like an NES Cartridge lrrWOW I love it! <3
Sarah_Serinde: lrrHERE
CAKHost: Why is a game that has more to do with Peggle and Slay the Spire, non-Nintendo games, making so many Nintendo references?!
Sarah_Serinde: A love of Nintendo?
enki1256: She does not look nearly as excited to be shot out of a crossbow thing as the dwarf did.
Dog_of_Myth: !findquote Nintendo
LRRbot: Quote #6676: "Wah! Nintendo is real!" —Wario [2020-01-06]
TehAmelie: Arnold Schwarzenegger voice: it is in your nature to destroy yourselves
CAKHost: Fair Wario
JadedCynic: @CAKHost because it got released on the Switch and is $9 right now apparently - maybe they sat down with Nin-legal and cleared all this?
JohnLockeCole: Wizardry seems hard
Earthenone: i wonder if the nintendo references helped them get on the Switch store?

CAKHost: @JadedCynic Didn't know that. I guess?
TehAmelie: three very premature babies?
Earthenone: you could always learn a skill on top of them to make them go away
Lysander_Gustav: hello folks!
JadedCynic: though the 'blow into the covered gold contacts' is less precisely a property of Nintendo itself, and more a 'cultural touchstone'of a past era?
Lysander_Gustav: Fantasy Peggle?
Juliamon: Fantasy Roguelite Peggle
Lysander_Gustav: Interesting
JadedCynic: I mean, do people blow into USB ports before connecting something? I might start doing that...
plummeting_sloth: a fog of frogs
JadedCynic: yay!
Getter404: I want to be friends with this orc!
Earthenone: i just rotate usb ports 3 times, i dont need to blow into them
JadedCynic: ^^^^
TehAmelie: i would love to see Nintendo try an claim they invented blowing into their cartridges to make them work. . .
JohnLockeCole: and Why is our Maximum Mana 0?
TehAmelie: hey maybe Nintendo magazine even published that tip once or twice
JadedCynic: I mean I was doing it with my 2600 cartidges before the NES ever launched :D
JohnLockeCole: ok it's going up, I guess we were under somekind of eeffect
Orgmastron: JohnLockeCole this is a special challenge run
Juliamon: JohnLockeCole Weekly challenge, we lose mana between shots
Mashamino: @JohnLockeCole an effect of the weekly challenge thingy
ritchards: wait... Owl House!
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie oh CRAP; I bet Nintendo Power DID...oh my
KeytarCat: You were robbed
JohnLockeCole: oooof loosing all your mana as Wizard

JadedCynic: you know what they say about problems when you get more money....
Mister_Hush: Does money actually *do* anything, or is it just a score?
Earthenone: score i belive
Earthenone: makes things happen on the wheel of winning?
TehAmelie: me, i once dropped a SNES cartridge from the top shelf and then it didn't work, but a day later it worked again. Killer Instinct, i think it was
JadedCynic: @Mister_Hush money is ALWAYS the score...just like in real life /s
TehAmelie: such soft hardware. i liked cartridges
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, since there is some threshold for the wheel?
Shirts_: what is this game and how do I buy it lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
PMAvers: Man, the draining mana pool if you don’t hit the scarab feels like a pain in the butt. Like a spike.
DiscordianTokkan: Bonus damage while poisoned at least
KeytarCat: "This attack won't land, and I get to watch the whole wind up while I get cloberized"
Lysander_Gustav: I like the music
Earthenone: i remember that happening to me in monster hunter
Lysander_Gustav: oh, a gelatinous cube
Raiz0k: The Deluxe Guide to All Your Mistakes.
TehAmelie: hehe the most unrealistic part of Dark Souls is when you swing the zweihänder around. historically it was mainly just lifted up and dropped onto enemies
Earthenone: press attack, know i will die, die 20 seconds later
plummeting_sloth: teh famous peggle thing? you mean play Ode to Joy when you win?
Lysander_Gustav: hahahahaha
Raiz0k: :D
KeytarCat: Why is your mana broken?
Lysander_Gustav: yeah it's so good
CleeKru: right Ode to Joy is the actual name....
JadedCynic: I gotta admit, that does hit me at an almost subconscious level...
Lysander_Gustav: It was such a good thing to hear when you're putting together a combo on breath of the wild
KeytarCat: ty
plummeting_sloth: they love ascending tones almost as much as free 2 day shipping
CleeKru: or rather "Ode an die Freude"
Manae: Do they use a Shepard scale though?
Raiz0k: Hah, re Zweihänder so the followup of people underestimating how those incredibly unwieldy weapons can't be used as a Final Fantasy sword?
Lysander_Gustav: I mean, with proper training I'm sure it won't feel unweildy.
Raiz0k: At least we hit "treasure" and not "spiders".
Lysander_Gustav: The weapon exists, so I'm sure it was useful for folks
TehAmelie: of course, you can just get the strength and stamina of a demigod to do it
JadedCynic: @Lysander_Gustav iirc, usually when mounted, sure, but...
KeytarCat: cleeeean
Raiz0k: @Lysander_Gustav : even if, it's a specialized weapon. If you were staggering out of an inn after a good night, you wouldn't want to have it as your main means of self defense.
RandomTrivia: benginChaos
NarishmaReborn: wait so are we just playing hades now?
TehAmelie: if Rhythm Cafe has taught us anything over the last weeks, what you want to carry around for self defense is a cannon
Mashamino: enigmaWheel
JadedCynic: I mean, personally, I figure the Zweihander's best use was 'looking awesome in the hands of the recently deceased laying in state', but YMMV
djalternative: a level 2 wheel?
TehAmelie: well, dropping a somewhat sharp and balanced massive piece of steel onto someone wearing steel armor could have great effect, with superb timing. sort of what they did with jousting lances
plummeting_sloth: so 2 fun facts I've recently learned doing some studying to make a kit for a Wars of the Roses group 1) There is a dagger called a bollard, which had some bulbous knobs in the hilt below the blade 2) When wearing your watch coat, it was common to carry your dagger immediately over your crotch where it would be accessibly and not hidden in the coat I'll trust y'all to fill out the rest
RandomTrivia: @Gekyouryuu boooooo
Raiz0k: @JadedCynic : that's the subject of "practical vs ceremonial weapons", which is a whole entire can of worms :).
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @plummeting_sloth is that a dagger in your prep or are you just pleased to see me
TehAmelie: imagine going out in public wearing nothing but assless chaps and a knife with testicles on it hanging over your groin
xantos69: cheer50 I also have bits for you. Bounce those pegs.
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : and that why e.g. the Winged Hussars had the koncerz, which was essentially a degenerated sabre, reduced to a pointing weapon, taking of the advantage of the combined weight of rider and horse.
TehAmelie: with the right hair you'd be a Final Fantasy villain
RandomTrivia: TehAmelie pls
CAKHost: Why
plummeting_sloth: sorry, I guess that was my fault
JadedCynic: you're gonna wanna read back through the chat, Streamers :D
Raiz0k: Just to clarify, I wasn't replying to that last post ;p.
xantos69: Just imagine that.
Lysander_Gustav: I love chat
JadedCynic: there is a context...
Sarah_Serinde: There's...a slight amount of context a little higher up in chat gabyLul
HarmonisedMelody: I can't believe you made me imagine this...
Lysander_Gustav: a knife with trucknuts
Sarah_Serinde: Ooh sweet
TehAmelie: we're studying history!
plummeting_sloth: ooh nice!

CAKHost: Oh the game Paul played?
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Sarah_Serinde: CAKHost Yup!
Lysander_Gustav: Control seems like it would have a lot to talk about
CAKHost: Oooh!
DiscordianTokkan: Later!
plummeting_sloth: i'd be interested in seeing what you think of The Foundation DLC, what with you knowing a bit of SCP Cameron
TehAmelie: thanks for having us lrrAWESOME_KI
plummeting_sloth: later!
CAKHost: Bye!
Lysander_Gustav: I haven't seen anyone talk about the DLC that is a tangental crossover with Alan Wake
Raiz0k: Thanks lrrCORI lrrCAMERON ! Thanks chat!
vmob: good bye! good bing!
Raiz0k: @plummeting_sloth : there's an actual SCP-based DLC for Control?
Lysander_Gustav: Not actual, for copyright reasons
ghyllnox: Ty! o/
Lysander_Gustav: Can't say it outright
