DoodlestheGreat: Google has corporate ADD
HalcyonPrime9: ^^
TheMerricat: @GapFiller the company prior to the one that I left in 2019 did big business in acquisitions of smaller companies that did the same stuff as we did and the statement pretty much was word for word what we'd find out the old owners of a lot of companies would give folk just before we walked through the door.
Juliamon: (I found out I was unemployed because a friend texted me with a supportive message about it)
krfsm: starting a project at google is how you get promoted, maintenance, not so much
r10pez10: maybe they felt sad when they dropped the ball on terraria
PharaohBender27: IIRC, in Jim Sterling's bit about it, they said Google also apparently thought that ISPs would be more cooperative with their service than they were?
PharaohBender27: Herzliche Grüße, @pyronils80 !

r10pez10: GapFiller what happened with uber?
Juliamon: Thumbs-up/thumbs-down is how most people rate thing anyway.
r10pez10: "Mountain Valley Spring Water"
ArcOfTheConclave: rated 5/7
TheMerricat: Uber lost their lawsuit in the UK, their workers count as workers now there and get min wage and benefits
GapFiller: r10pez10 UK Supreme Court ruled their drivers are workers NOT self employed
r10pez10: yes good
r10pez10: cheers
Raiz0k: Excellent, another place stands up for them.
PharaohBender27: "We want General Direct, not Lieutenant Direct!"
DeM0nFiRe: Haha yeah fandom of nintendo marketing communications
TehAmelie: the question is, can someone make a Ntendo Indirect parody?
LordZarano: Steam does actually have a percentage rating. "86% positive reviews". It'll show you if you hover over Very Positive
Raiz0k: The method in the madness for Steam ratings is that with the lower granularity (at least the immediately visible one, like LordZarano pointed out), they have more opportunities to counteract gaming the system.
r10pez10: i would watch a nintendo variety show tbh
Bellpei: We need new Puppet executives.

Snowcookies: Project triangle strategy
Raiz0k: Listening to Heather now, I'm not sure whether we actually need Beej all the time on Chillpoint ;).
r10pez10: breath of the wild 2 news: there is no breath of the wild 2 news
r10pez10: skyward sword was pretty good
jacobsh97: Skyward sword is my favorite zelda game
jacobsh97: I'm looking forward to playing it again
aiamethyst: the minesweeper minigame was great
KinoGami: they have never added content to any of the re-releases
shea_wolfe: I would love twilight princess HD and WW HD on switch, but I'll take this for now
RandomTrivia: Arguably Link's Awakening DX was a remake with extra content, but that was just the colour dungeon
r10pez10: triangle news
r10pez10: lmao
DeM0nFiRe: There's still a chance more zelda stuff will happen, since they haven't mentioned the 35th anniversary yet
98paperboys: I'm really looking forward to triangle strategy actually
Raiz0k: Gods damn, that name....
nyperold: Demise's Fury. :D
cuttlefishman: hunh, howdy folks

RandomTrivia: Hey there cuttlefishman!
r10pez10: minish cap on switch when
PharaohBender27: After lrrGRAHAM 's delivery of that name, I can only imagine PROJECT TRIANGLE STRATEGY being in all caps :D
Raiz0k: At least we'll know what the sequel will be called!
Snowcookies: There are better ways to make placeholder titles
CururuGuasu: I don’t think they will keep the project name this time
TheMerricat: I mean most JRPG games these days have titles that look like they came out of a twitch clip link generator anyway.....
mowdownjoe: Bravely Default was "Project Flying Fairy" when they just had a 3DS demo, IIRC.
shea_wolfe: Octopath was sooo pretty, I enjoyed that game so much, just wish it had better writing
shea_wolfe: Remember Pandimonium?
RandomTrivia: Nintendo are out here playing 2.5D Chess LUL
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, Bravely Default is probably the weirdest JRPG name so far, at least Octopath Traveller invokes something, as Heather pointed out.
r10pez10: five over two D
quillilian: 2.5.1D
r10pez10: 2.5D+
Raiz0k: @r10pez10 0.4D?
s4mwise_ow: To me 2.5d always invokes Super Paper Mario lol
TheMerricat: I can't remember chat, did Kathleen finish her "Now Kiss" playthrough of Octopath? All I remember is her trying to get two characters to make out over someone's grave...
margieargie: They need at -least- 8 months to come up with another name
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah releasing a very early demo to get feedback is a good idea I think
shea_wolfe: In like...less than a week I think
98paperboys: I can only afford one JRPG per year, and this year's is Bravely Default II, so I'm glad that Triangle Strategy is slated for 2022
NonUniqueGuy: Getting feedback for a game is always fun.

snowmonkey99: Splatoon has always been post apocalyptic, the wasteland seems new
Mikey_McC: It very was in game, it was pretty central to the Splatoon 2 DLC
s4mwise_ow: Splatoon lore runs deep
nyperold: @r10pez10 Go into a business that the hero will be required to be a customer for? And make sure you tell him where the Fairies who upgrade your Wallet are?
Armstrong11139: The post-apocalyptic setting was in the game, though the original reveal was a hidden item in the first game
DeM0nFiRe: Maybe the apocalypse only happened in france
CururuGuasu: The hidden lore you unlock implies some dark history
Armstrong11139: It's just that up to now, we've mostly focused on the "rebuilt" squid society

Wicker_Guide: lrrSPOOP
RockPusher: Can't be BG&E - Splatoon games actually get made lrrBEEJ
EightBitDreams: Propaganda!
fireiceair1989: I love how Splatoon 3 logo colours are shared with fireic1Enby
s4mwise_ow: @rockpusher lrrWOW
mowdownjoe: Apparently, the setting of Splatoon 3 was influenced by a Splatfest. Which I guess explains the 2022 release date.
Raiz0k: @RockPusher : at least Splat3 is not made by Valve, so there's hope....
Johanson69: BG&E2 is more space opera though, the original kinda dystopian I guess?
snowmonkey99: Coming out on the 900th of March
shadowbow464: Chaos won the last splatfest in 2019 so given that they probably started development in the late 2019.
EightBitDreams: With every announcement they say it means the Switch Pro is coming
GapFiller: speaking of Rise the Steve!Beej callback was good
r10pez10: Switch Pro is gonna be two joycons each with a screen on them
Orgmastron: That's conspiracy logic for you
RandomTrivia: The Switch Pro has reached HL3 levels of rumour-mill power
KinoGami: the switch pro both exists and does not exist at the same time
IncredibleFrown: i half suspect the order city will be the expansion pack of 3, the same way the octo subway was the expansion of 2
EightBitDreams: A Zelda 35th anniversary Direct
s4mwise_ow: Oohhh I hope so. Octo Expansion was SWEET
GapFiller: Can't Won't what's the diff really
RandomTrivia: Ah well. There's always Pokemon Direct
TheMerricat: Chat, I'm starting to think that the reason why Heather is tired of Switch Pro news is because Nintendo has told her that they are going to announce it this year and she's just tired of not talking about it :D
r10pez10: Flight Simulator World 3-1
EightBitDreams: Flight Simulator 2020 is just jaw dropping in VR...if you can run it. It requires a monster PC to handle it
margieargie: Yep! Buckingham Palace is no longer an apartment block! :p
Mixtab: LiDAR point maps?
SpacePotato01: New balance patch. Big Ben is now 10 miles tall.
s4mwise_ow: I want to spend money on Nintendo stuff, but I’m waiting on Big Uncle Joe to come through with his check, cause a boy gotta save cash, yaknow?
LunarJade: @GapFiller "Can't" suggests the game isn't developing well. "Won't" suggests they have PR plans.
TheMerricat: @EightBitDreams true for a lot of VR stuff. I was looking into the possibility of getting SkyrimVR and.... I'm sad again now.
RandomTrivia: "Look at all these new things for you to crash into!"

TheMerricat: Good thing about a 747 is you'd go over it....
SpacePotato01: They just don't want to have to do 300 orders all at once.
RockPusher: If you look out the left side of the plane, you'll see a Denny's
CAKHost: What about on a boat pull by a car?
GapFiller: thats the ting when there aint no law they always say theres a law now
LordZarano: !sir

r10pez10: what a dilemma
Juliamon: I watched some wild turkeys walk through a drive-thru once. Nobody shooed them away.
CAKHost: People do that!
HalcyonPrime9: seems entirely reasonable
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : but with a 737 MAX.....
CAKHost: At least the car pull a boat...
RockPusher: (I don't think Denny's do drive through, but it is a funnier name)
manwichcannon: in the future when we have flying cars, drive throughs will shoot capsules that our vehicles capture
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I'd rather they try to drive a 737 Max through a drive through than fly it.... :P
nyperold: I need to have a think about Warp Pipe placement.
Juliamon: I'm SO hyped for the pipes
nyperold: Pipe Hype.
CAKHost: Feb 25th
TheMerricat: @RockPusher Curbside pickup is available for the Denny's near me, close enough :D
Skeletonman1100: Great news.
CAKHost: That's when the update will be coming out
RandomTrivia: Houses with no doors!
r10pez10: so, a door
ArcOfTheConclave: is this AC?
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : the pilots as well, significantly less attitude warnings.
EightBitDreams: Wow, I'm going to have to start playing Animal Crossing again
Juliamon: Being able to go straight from your indoors to a shop is hype.

HalcyonPrime9: Pi day or pie day?
RockPusher: Booo Pie day - Tau day forever!
TheMerricat: Quick chat! Call Vi Hart!
MolaMolaphant: it's a pie model with the symbol for pi on it
GapFiller: Hinamatsuri is Girls Day according to the usual source:
quillilian: Just connect the pipe directly to the plumping. lrrGARBO -free washroom
RandomTrivia: "I baked you a pie!" "Oh boy, what flavour?" "PIE-FLAVOURED!"
shadowbow464: Hina matsuri is girls day.
Raiz0k: "Ewww, tastes irrational."
niccus: pi? pie? paipopaipo paipo-no-shūringan?
margieargie: @Raiz0k -I- think it tastes transcendental!
Raiz0k: *checks on the ring's floorboards*
TheMerricat: ysbrydPunjail ysbrydPunjail you two.
IncredibleFrown: @margieargie you must be imagining things
rocketjohn: will they actually stop authorising things for their platform that aren't accessible though.
Raiz0k: Ooooh, TIL we have a special one for that, I've always been using FootYellow .
r10pez10: is it like the TURBO button on my pc
Raiz0k: Ah, the TURBO button.....
KinoGami: is this dark souls 2 weapon durability again?
TheMerricat: I can't remember did the turbo button just lower the cycle speed or did it spam the CPU to slow it down manually?
PharaohBender27: DirectX, or as laypeople know it, "that thing that needs to be installed every time you start up a game the first time" katesSass
EightBitDreams: That's why Zelda Skyward Sword couldn't run at 60fps even in emulators, all over the game every bit is timed for 30fps...but Nintendo in rewriting the game for Switch gave it 60fps
GapFiller: maybe its a sign of age but can never hear the name DirectX w/o immediately thinking abt the quasi black magic process of installing 90's PC games
Skeletonman1100: @EightBitDreams I did not know that. Thanks for that tidbit!
TheMerricat: You'd think that in 2000 era programming, folk would stop using FPS as your timing block... but....
Raiz0k: It might be dependent on the architecture TheMerricat?
pyronils80: Blizzard just announced a HD remaster of Diablo II! Sorry for being off topic, but had to share it! Oh Yeah! :)
pyronils80: Diablo 2
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I looked it up and apparently it literally dropped the cycle speed on the original ones and as PC's got too fast for even that, did software shenanigans then they stopped using htem
EightBitDreams: Ooo, is it a cube?
ritchards: but can you pet them??
PharaohBender27: ^
IncredibleFrown: sharks with frickin laser beams on their heads?
RandomTrivia: You can create forced invasive species?! Finally, some realism!
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : you might, until you take a look at the still-extant game engines. Which probably have that (brave) default to enable power users to optimize their game code.
TheMerricat: That'll be interesting @pyronils80, but then I remember how well received War3's remastering was received so... conditional yay?
Easilycrazyhat: You can apparently genetically engineer eggs?
iris_of_ether: There are so many random animals!
ritchards: SimLife!
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : yeah, that makes sense from an electronics standpoint.
TwitchTVsFrank: i saw a sentient pineapple
EightBitDreams: Spore!

Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this NMS?
RandomTrivia: Oh dear. Once again, scientists are so concerned with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should. lrrBEEJ
Juliamon: Spore, but with a better game attached to the creature gen
Creideiki_SE: Invasive *and* horrifying species? This is just Space Australia!
TehAmelie: i'm going to have to play on not-hardcore mode sometime so i can see any of the new stuff they made in the last three or four versions. . .
Raiz0k: You can use emotes I guess even without that patch, some of which look like a "there there" gesture :).
RockPusher: Good on the devs for sticking with it after all the blow back
ArcOfTheConclave: can you fight other players with your pocket monsters?
margieargie: I love what I've played of NMS and wish I had the time to give it its proper attention
TheMerricat: NMS has officially reached the point where I've lost track of all of what they've added and now it's actually so full of content that I'm almost too intimidated to start back up again.
rocketjohn: for me, the original NMS was perfect, and then they progressively ruined it.
Narcogen: There are a lot more creatures and NPCs now than there were at launch
Narcogen: At launch it was a lot more empty
quillilian: Expecting no man's in these skies?
Raiz0k: My favorite No Man's Sky thing is that the lobby message of "X did something" is autotranslated to X's language. Probably not as visible in NA, but in Europe....
TehAmelie: you have to think like a colonizer to feel like you're alone, think the NPC species don't really count
Narcogen: It's Raining Men's Sky
Laserbeaks_Fury: I just hate space is full of rocks
TheMerricat: Subnautica - Paradise full of huge monsters simulator.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : don't be, they've also streamlined lots of stuff along the way. It's really accessible, there's tons of game-integrated tutorials, etc.
RockPusher: Speedwetting!
IncredibleFrown: vicas's successor?
Raiz0k: Ah yeah, Subnautica, the game for dreadlaxing.
RandomTrivia: Why? Because someone had to.
cuttlefishman: A feet of strength
cuttlefishman: if I may
pyronils80: Subnautica is the most beautiful game ever!
RandomTrivia: That's pretty impressive
nyperold: Toetally amazing.
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k that's actually super comforting, I've played games before where the tutorials didn't keep up with the content added so starting up was unintentionally super hostile just because there were fifty other things going on that the tutorials weren't updated to accomidate for. Thanks :)
Raiz0k: I can't wait for the post-release patch of Subnautica: Below Zero, so that I can actually start playing it without save file invalidation ;).
EightBitDreams: Ooo, he must be a beta tester for the Switch Pro and its new foot controllers
IncredibleFrown: four joycons, two for your hands and
RandomTrivia: oh no
DeM0nFiRe: yeah no mans sky new player experience is smoother than it used to be, so it is still a good time to start playing
Snowcookies: wut
ArcOfTheConclave: WHY
PharaohBender27: O_o
snowmonkey99: Ah, a Twerk-ey
AshBurnem: Twerk-ey, yes.
margieargie: Good if you like the thigh meat I guess
SFSMaus: I've been twerked!
kat2kool: Apparently the Japanese name is Shiritori, or Butt Bird
Bellpei: Miitopia: Horse Girl Edition.
Drasvin: Since BotW npcs were based on the mii system, I wonder if the new mii stuff is prototyping things for BotW2
PharaohBender27: katesLol
nyperold: Or you can follow a guide on how to make Miis of various characters and put them in.
RandomTrivia: Eww, shipping real people nooooo
TheMerricat: Does the Switch still have Mii like avatars? That was the thing I liked most about screwing around with on the Wii.
DoodlestheGreat: Soooo.... Blizcon's opening is done, and you're definitely going to get some stuff for next week's Checkpoint out of it. notsquishY
GapFiller: isnt that just real life fanfic
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : yeah, one of the things they did good there is that they use the player's natural environmental progression – limited by game mechanics – to prevent them from getting "infodumped". It's still not a perfect game, but it looks like they've *also* done their homework in the usability department. You're welcome :).
EightBitDreams: Rated Mature: Miitopia SlashFic edition
Raiz0k: Ughh... I do honestly hope the Streisand Effect will be going to full effect there.
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k I feel sorta bad about blasting Hello Games back during the launch these days, they really went the extra mile and beyond on NMS.
atinyspacemarine: oh, gun game!
DeM0nFiRe: Sounds like reverse gun gamew
atinyspacemarine: which game are they talking about?
DeM0nFiRe: -w
DeM0nFiRe: Valorant
atinyspacemarine: ah, cool
Laserbeaks_Fury: I feel like I've played that game mode in another shooter
Laserbeaks_Fury: But I can't recall
atinyspacemarine: it's classic CS(c/s/o) gun game as it was meant to be played
DeM0nFiRe: It's a game mode that came from counter strike mods and maybe other stuff before it, but yeah it's caleld reverse gun game in counter strike world
atinyspacemarine: I like the idea of it a lot
s4mwise_ow: I wish Valorant was good, cause maybe then CS would make a few changes.
TheMerricat: If you are still killing other players by slapping them....
margieargie: It's kind of like people getting confused about how the DEFCON numbers work
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : IMO you shouldn't be (esp. since I doubt you were anywhere near at the extreme of the "hate" they got), because they deserved it then. As much as they deserve praise now for, effectively redmeeing themselves. Rarely, but still sometimes, tough love is the way apparently ;).
atinyspacemarine: increase the challenge to get kills, built in rubber banding
Questhere: passive resentment
s4mwise_ow: But nah they just take CS and made it A Riot Game.
EightBitDreams: Kindness war!
SpoonfullOfSugar: All turns into a compliment guel
Capt_clown: I mean escalated difficulty
Greggleswong: eventually you're just down to trout
SpoonfullOfSugar: duel that is
Raiz0k: In that case....
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah I heard D4
Wolfstrike_NL: Not really?

DoodlestheGreat: PLAID!
kat2kool: tsk, purple mana getting snubbed once again
Bellpei: We're going to brown town!
Snowcookies: Green is best
DeM0nFiRe: The best color of magic is octarine
Raiz0k: Isn't the best color "Jund"?
GapFiller: benginHeart benginChaos
Capt_clown: Blue is your a jerk LUL LUL
nyperold: The Colour of Magic?
TheMerricat: Brown is really just Orange with context. :P
Laserbeaks_Fury: Damniot, I was just about to do the Appljack joke
littledansonman: I'm a brown main
beowuuf: colourless is not a colour, but brown is :p
Juliamon: ^
margieargie: Five colors, plus the special color only cool people can see
rocketjohn: wheeler is on brown, presumably
Electrodyne: "I'm gonna go cast a Brown Lotus"
kat2kool: could be Serge
TheMerricat: Serge should be Brown, agreed.
m_logan2000: teteris?
Snowcookies: the search party is more a kill party
Juliamon: He's probably a billionaire at the rate bitcoin's been going
PharaohBender27: Inventory Tetris
djalternative: basically, you can't actually escape from tarkov yet. that map isn't in the game at the moment
Orgmastron: Inventory Tetris!
Juliamon: That's like 85% of the game
m_logan2000: half?
DoodlestheGreat: Yep! That's about half the game.
Wicker_Guide: 80% invento4y
margieargie: Ah, right, murder Tetris
CururuGuasu: Murder Tetris
RockPusher: margieargie Brown is really Octarine? By eyes have been deceiving me this whole time‽
Raiz0k: Hah! Even without watching his streams yet, I *knew* what Paul is going to say xD.
TheMerricat: If you see people they shoot you, then it's over. So yeah, inventory management :)
DoodlestheGreat: Okay one third inventory management, one third hideout management, and one third dying in the first 60 seconds of a raid.
PharaohBender27: katesWot
Wolfstrike_NL: O cool!
TehAmelie: there are still more cars left
TehAmelie: to. . .project
mtg69420: cars
TheMerricat: He added a REAL car wheel to the stick!
kat2kool: Ian finally remade the wheel?? :O
RandomTrivia: He swapped the wheel out for one that's BIGGER than before
Electrodyne: Late night PIF/Tarkov has really been messing up the Secret Paul Message schedule recently
Snowcookies: Woo racing
Raiz0k: Improved grip!
EightBitDreams: They embed his DNA in the wheel
RockPusher: Ian did an Ian and will do an Ian to show off the Ian…
DeM0nFiRe: It was a 3 project tinker tailor solder fry. Modified the wheel, and shifter, and also made a button box
Snowcookies: How many games are there
DeM0nFiRe: 2
Juliamon: The loose ends seem to be tying up
RandomTrivia: We found tiny Subway. He's precious and WE MUST SAVE HIM
Electrodyne: There are only 6 games we haven't discovered yet
TheMerricat: Watching Ian doing TTSF is dangerous for me lately, I keep having to remind myself that I don't have the bandwitdh right now to start trying to emulate him on hardware hacking :D
kat2kool: Heather's last sentence is a perfect example of why I love Rhythm Cafe
Juliamon: It's VERY straightforward. Just also VERY a lot.
TheMerricat: AKA Red Dwarf meets Aliens.
beowuuf: so gutted the youtube is being a butt :(
PharaohBender27: YouTube plz
GapFiller: wasnt there a DMCA ting w/ it
RandomTrivia: Oh what a surprise... Kappa
beowuuf: at least episode 0 is still up and twitchvod is ok
margieargie: I can't believe copyright enforcement on YouTube is causing unnecessary problems, that never happens!
swaggytaco: oh dang i didnt realize i missed an episode
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
TheMerricat: WTF could Youtube screw up on that episode and think should be DMCA'd?
RockPusher: The Funko-friendly time!
Earthenone: im guessing intro music?
Raiz0k: Are you honestly surprised?
beowuuf: i think the attribution in the archive is mis-spelled, or someone is claiming it anyway, or something weird, or both
Earthenone: assuming they had a custom music intro for the campaign?
RandomTrivia: That sounds like a James problem!
Hexi_Lexi: james knows what he did :p

margieargie: Isn't that how it usually is...

TehAmelie: unless you mean the Old Testament
Earthenone: haha
TheMerricat: I thought it was started in the "Alex's Stream" CH bit, where Beej dances to try to distract Alex so they can break him away from his stream.
TehAmelie: that's it
TehAmelie: the video called. . .Alex's Stream
Earthenone: ok, i remember it from their but it felt like it might be a callback to something earlier that i missed
TehAmelie: i guess it builds on Beej's established love for taking his clothes of
Earthenone: a charicter in a gatcha game i am playing has a skill called seven veils and it made me think of beej, so they are in my main team :P
