wildpeaks: *gasp*
Foxmar320: I knew it!
RandomTrivia: (for a lack of TXC2)
Juliamon: Paul PiF'd it
Foxmar320: Paul played Control
wildpeaks: it was Paul playing it in Play It Forward
Raiz0k: Oh yeah, it was Paul!
PixelArtDragon: Did Paul play control, or did Control play Paul?
wildpeaks: :D
Raiz0k: Maybe Paul Controlled Play.
wildpeaks: and triangles were involved
Foxmar320: Paul didn't do the DLC tho
Foxmar320: I don't think it was out yet
Ferisar: yes yes yes
r10pez10: director
TheMerricat: BTW chat, I normally don't do this but if you are at all interested in owning Control and don't yet, you might want to keep an eye out on March's Humble Choice Bundle (it's their monthly deal) I got an email from them saying Control would be one of the games in it.
snailkane subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 9 months, currently on a 9 month streak!

wildpeaks: sweet
Raiz0k: Is that DLC a standalone?
Armyguy0: Man last time i showed up this soon no one had founded there 1st city yet
Anubis169: TheMerricat: Guessing it'll be the higher tier of donation, but worth it.
wildpeaks: it's also on GOG drm-free
Foxmar320: DLC is not standalone
Anubis169: thankies for the heads up!
Raiz0k: Also, that track RN sounds like a mix between Cities: Skylines' soundtrack and that of Thomas Was Alone.
Raiz0k: @Foxmar320 : thx.
snailkane: I'm hyped for this stream as Control was one of my fave games the year it came out
corianderd: @Anubis169 Choice is Humble's monthly subscription
Armyguy0: @Anubis169 Humble Choice is pick your own
Raiz0k: And thanks for the heads up TheMerricat!
Anubis169: o hai Cori
corianderd: o/
Armyguy0: so its 10$ or so
TheMerricat: @Anubis169 that's not how their Choice bundle works, it's a "pick X out of X deal" where you pay the sub price either for a month or more and then each month you get to pick to keep X games out of that month's list

CMDRNuffin: is it just me or is cam's volume a bit low?
Armyguy0: @CMDRNuffin not just you
Hangedman: I got it day one, I was far too excited. Infrequently so excited these days
DiscordianTokkan: Volume seems low, yes
wildpeaks: must be nice
TheMerricat: Amazon wish lists are the way to go.
Foxmar320: As an adult I don't get xmas gifts anymore
BrindleBoar: Amazollars.

Armyguy0: ngl cash is the way to go
wildpeaks: it is canonically in the same universe as Alan Wake
Hangedman: This game is sort of the culmination of all their previous games
Foxmar320: I am one of the few people who enjoyed Quantum Break
HundreydAundre: LRR Control: The Talking Sim/Played Forward Sequel
Hangedman: Modern magical realism, is the name I’ve seen
Hangedman: But that name is great
Raiz0k: Well, it's not only SCP. E.g. Perdido Street Station, Kill Six Billion Demons are all that.
Raiz0k: Hah!
r10pez10: Control stuck with me so much i ended up doing an art because of it https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/324138724973608960/813888376285429790/IMG_20210224_054114.jpg
Hangedman: Hey same. First and only fanart I did
Foxmar320: Oh thats really good
Ferisar: @e_bloc nina's stream, by any chance?
e_bloc: I believe this is still a free to play download on PS+ this month
e_bloc: @Ferisar indeed,
krfsm: Jeff Vandermeer's Southern Reach stories are also considered early New Weird IIRC
wildpeaks: funny anecdote, the narrative writer of Control worked on Dishonored before
Ferisar: nice!
Raiz0k: Yeah, Southern Reach as well.
wildpeaks: so you know it's The Good Stuff
e_bloc: won't promote other streams but I will say she is a delight to watch
r10pez10: my favourite part were the in-game whiteboards adding lore
e_bloc: I love the lore of this game
niccus: the new hotness now that people don't say "paranormal"
Raiz0k: On the gaming front, the Fallen London world (Fallen London, Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies), which is strongly evidently inspired by Bas-Lag.
Raiz0k: (the Perdido Street Station world)
wildpeaks: Sunless Skies would be lovely for a talking sim one day
PixelArtDragon: Is anyone else finding Cam's sound to be a bit low?
natedesuka: Cam you're a bit quiet
charlieweber45: lrrBEEJ

TehAmelie: i submit "weird" is a genre only because publishers don't like "horror" anymore
Kaorti: fiction fusion cuisine
Raiz0k: @wildpeaks : maybe once we get the Sovereign update, hopefully by the end of the century ;).
krfsm: China Mieville's Kraken is kind of a New Weird take on urban fantasy, it felt to me.
niccus: mystery flesh pit national park
Hangedman: I often think of it as - the exploration of modern existential horrors like liminal spaces, through a fantastic lens
wildpeaks: oh wow I thought they were done with updates, they already added so much
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : nomenclature is as much of subject to fashion as anything is.
krfsm: it's MEATY
Kaorti: I think it actively and self-conciously resists definition.

natedesuka: I adore the interior design in this game, its soooo good, reminds me of going to my parent's work in the 80's
Ferisar: kraken i remember reading under the pretense of magical realism but that's not really anything by itself
krfsm: the horror is closer to the surface in Bas-Lag than in Ankh-Morpork, but there's definitely a touch of horror in Pratchett's stories too.
LordZarano: Enter Nightvale definitely fits in somewhere here
PixelArtDragon: SCP is apparently very good for hobbyist horror writing
wildpeaks: Control is certainly "SCP: The Game" meets The Lost Room
Juliamon: It was good until the "will they/won't they" resolved
DeM0nFiRe: I've been listening to NIght Vale recently, really cool
Raiz0k: Oh, Nightvale is definitely in the genre.

EvieCraven: How about: "New Weird is a genre that explores the unknown and the unknowable, but is differentiated from the 'Old' Weird by a more complex investigation of these topics -- in particular not only focusing on the horror that the unknown/unknowable provokes in people, but also its attraction and the need to accept it"
Kaorti: I
innovativemethods: Yeah. That's sort of what I feel. After they found the corporate-conspiracy town, things sort of fell apart (they're supernatural-conspiracy town)
r10pez10: all hail the glow cloud
Sogheim: do y'all not have a Glow Cloud? ours is turquoise by the turnpike
PixelArtDragon: Do not look directly at the dog park
Kaorti: I think "the glow cloud is on the PTA" is a good summary of New Wierd.
Hangedman: Spooky Qwerpline
Sogheim: that book is scary, that movie is terrifying
Raiz0k: @wildpeaks : re Sunless Skies – I was snarky with Sovereign, since I came in late (late last year in fact), but having looked at the previous versions: yeah, it's definitely game that has undergone extreme development in the meantime.
2Flower: I see New Weird as a seamless blending of the mundane and the impossible. Where strangeness is common and you can live alongside it in a fairly boring way.
UncannyJimjams: Ca, is going to love Emily then
j3official: Chimichanga
UncannyJimjams: Cam*
Hangedman: Yeah, Control has several characters who all face it in different but very human ways
talosparoxi: man control took me by surprise and took me for a ride
Hangedman: It’s a good cast for that
Foxmar320: I think Cam is going to love the characters in this game
Raiz0k: Also, if someone played Sunless Sea and was discouraged – I still recommend Sunless Skies. Unlike its predecessor on occassion, it's very much a *game*.
BlindProphet32: Given all this I picked a good time to rewatch Fringe
Foxmar320: Janitor best character
noSmokeFire: "digesting annihilation" sounds like something that calls for an antacid
wildpeaks: oh yeah Sunless Sea is so hard, I never had the courage to play that one
optimalbook: How do you feel about the Annihilation movie as opposed to the book? I felt, while it was a good movie that the departures from the novel were a bit too distracting.
UncannyJimjams: This is, for me, the Twin Peaks of New Weird narratives
wildpeaks: definitely enjoyed other people's playthrough of it though
PixelArtDragon: I have become my friend group's Owner of a copy of Dune
TehAmelie: it's funny cause the second book's main character is called Control. just his own self-applied nickname
gualdhar: sorry, who's the author for annihilation? I missed it
StarWarsTHX1138: Wait what book are we talking about?
SeiichiSin: You really shouldn't be throwing books at people anyway. Unless they deserve it, but then you should use your old college textbooks.
natedesuka: Oh Fringe, thats such a good example, I loved that show
optimalbook: @gualdhar it's Jeff VanderMeer
Hangedman: Living alongside the unknown, and recognizing the unknown in everyday things
wildpeaks: Fringe <3
Raiz0k: Strugatsky Brothers are probably the protoplasts, even.
talosparoxi: "suck is life in the zone"
talosparoxi: *such
Kaorti: Maybe it's been said, but Gibson's "The Belonging Kind" seems pretty new weird.
natedesuka: John Noble was robbed by the Emmys, never even nominated, he was amazing
innovativemethods: I mean. It's trash, right?
BlindProphet32: @natedesuka Agreed.
Raiz0k: @wildpeaks : as many others, I played Sunless Sea for the story *despite* the gameplay mechanics. For Sunless Skies, you both enjoy the gameplay *and* the story.
talosparoxi: used batteries, empty beer bottles, tupperware
TehAmelie: rip Fringe with Benefits, my little experiment in online group TV watching
wildpeaks: Raiz0k oh yeah that's a good way to formulate it
Raiz0k: :)
innovativemethods: Sunless Skies, notably, has a slider to make the gameplay not a barrier to story progress, and I think that's the best option for a game like it. I enjoy Sunless Skies a lot.
Kaorti: use it for shelves
BrindleBoar: IIRC in Roadside Picnic the aliens didn't even visit, there's just this line of craters across the planet where the alien civilization's trash and/or wreckage struck the planet?
Hangedman: No one is sure, is important to Roadside Picnic
innovativemethods: Sunless Sea I kept dying because there's no real tutorial for the game mechanics, so I never got to progress the story because I kept having to run back for food and whatnot.
dappercuttlefish: hey y'all! have I missed anything?
Hangedman: Everyone just speculates about the β€˜roadside picnic’ because they don’t understand us and we don’t understand them
wildpeaks: I think having permadeath optional is the main thing that would have allowed me to play Sunless Seas: I love permadeath in games, but rarely as a first playthrough for something so narrative
r10pez10: the penny dropping on the shawshank drop was hilarious
TheMerricat: We are still in booth view Cam
r10pez10: it's a brick joke that doesn't resolve til the end of the game
thetoastmonster: all pigs fed and ready to fly
wildpeaks: oh yeah, Metro has this too, ti's lovely
RandomTrivia: LUL
innovativemethods: @wildpeaks You absolutely need permadeath for the story to work... but Sunless Skies has a "retire" option so you don't have to suicide, which is really what's required.
r10pez10: oh playing it with audio in another language is crazy
UncannyJimjams: As a US federal employee, the memos and the architecture and SPOT ON and they filled me with a lot of... nostalgia might be the word
talosparoxi: I mean this is talking simulator, the game is only a gateway into conversation
Hangedman: If anyone is interested in Control and isn’t really into the gameplay, I highly recommend that you play on low difficulty with aim assist. Just make yourself a super badass. It absolutely works.
innovativemethods: (Seas does too, but it *gates* it, and that sucks.)
PixelArtDragon: I need to finish Solaris at some point
ameliette: yes, epilepsy warning is very real with this. (probably wont reach the worst of it in this stream though)
TehAmelie: so the game gives you a lot of. . .control?
Raiz0k: @innovativemethods : but even on the defaults, it's OK for everyday gamers. Sunless Sea was a game where the player is a suffering book protagonists. And fortunately they learned that for Sunless Skies, that's the wrong approach for the medium, since a reader, and a player, are two different things.
Hangedman: Turn off the UI, crank up the badass options, play a fun TV show
TheMerricat: Plato's Poster?
e_bloc: one of my DMs independently created their own oldest house and I was disappointed when neither they nor the other players got the reference
Raiz0k: @wildpeaks : even with permadeath, Sunless Sea is waaaaaaayyyy easier on you. No more heirlooms and other obscure mechanics, you just lose half of your cash and some of your exp.
r10pez10: courtney hope does really good in this
Foxmar320: Best painting ever
margieargie: The Prison Movie sounds like an awful "parody" film from 10 years ago
NightWingMistHawk: Was the man crying as he held the gun up to his head?
Hangedman: Not quite
Raiz0k: Honestly, is anyone surprised that the janitor is more powerful than it seems ;)?
wildpeaks: welcome to the oldest house
e_bloc: @r10pez10 she deserves an award for this
krfsm: oh yeah, this game has the Finnish janitor too

mostly_minerals: Its opressive for sure
PixelArtDragon: The architecture in this game is quite good
InkyGhoast: I think i've been in this building
UncannyJimjams: I work in a building almost exactly like this lol
innovativemethods: This is just a random DC FBI building.
Hangedman: This looks like every old college
Hangedman: It’s great
wildpeaks: the house is its own character
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : the reference is completely obfuscated. Completely.
CrazyZonie: Not robin from HIMYM... But she does remind me of an actress... Can't remember who.
TehAmelie: Cobie Smoulders
e_bloc: it really captures the brutalism of a federal building at some times
r10pez10: she's based off of Courtney Hope, who stars in The Bold and the Beautiful
Raiz0k: Heheh.
caoinlean: looooovvveee this game
InkyGhoast: take the keys out of your pocket, show your ID
CrazyZonie: Ministry of Silly Walks! That's the one you're looking for.
Sogheim: I was worried there wouldn't be stairs up, that the second flor just stares down at you with no way up
TheElrad: The Ministry of Asking on Questions
Raiz0k: It's the The Ministry, it's not industrial at all.
Foxmar320: Reflections are real good
innovativemethods: A picture of someone not looking into the camera. Cool, cool.
Raiz0k: *not
r10pez10: oh yeah this game has raytracing
caoinlean: this is definitely a look at everything type of game

e_bloc: I believe it
RandomTrivia: Fascinating
wildpeaks: oh if you like typography, you're gonna love this game
CrazyZonie: Typewriters are under appreciated tech.
TehAmelie: from Central Bureau of Control alone the Southern Reach vibe seems strong here. is there some official connection i've missed?
talosparoxi: 14 point? dang that's big
Raiz0k: Niice.

ContingentCat: wow
niccus: you know, anything past 1850s
SurfDownstage: No zippers allowed
thetoastmonster: no Tamagotchis.

TheMerricat: " Always use Times New Roman 12-point font. Indent each paragraph using the "Tab" key once for a lh-inch indent. Leave one blank line between paragraphs. β€’ Place the inside address at the top of the letter, block style. β€’ Center the closing ("Sincerely"). Center the signature block ("John F. Kerry"); then using the spacebar, place six spaces before "John" to ensure the "J" in "John" aligns with the "S" in "Sincerely." "

Decaped: Number 2 Pencils are probably too iconic
devil_dan: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 31:06.
Raiz0k: Maybe we should just leave?
Foxmar320: Jerry went on break hours ago
TehAmelie: is the platonic ideal the monster?
RandomTrivia: Sooo... anything that might be recognisable and psychologically notable? That seems concerning
PixelArtDragon: But what about #3 pencils?
TheElrad: and this has been Talking Simulator folks
PixelArtDragon: Oh yeah, it's hardness
Kaorti: The big truth of regulation: every rule has a body count.
flufff42: Just take a seat and wait
Raiz0k: What about #i pencils?
Sogheim: that's what HB means?
r10pez10: the logo is great
ruscobrog: Outside of drafting, I can't imagine anyone would normally find out.
talosparoxi: I was in like highschool when I found that stuff out
RandomTrivia: @Raiz0k You're imagining things
xantos69: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 31:56.
JAndersonCAD: i had a full set for drafting
ArdCollider: we have those in the US but they come in "drawing pencil" packages and loose stock
r10pez10: [H]ardness and [B]oftness
Easilycrazyhat: the doors like you
talosparoxi: art and robotics classes covered it
JAndersonCAD: but its dying out
wildpeaks: well this seems safe
EvilBadman: I only learned pencil types when I was in a drafting class
niccus: they're having a good time
Foxmar320: That all sounds normal
KevinTheShark: The doors all open proximity based. Its nothing suspicious
Juliamon: Yeah, also learned from a drafting class.
2Flower: All hail inverted controls!
CrazyZonie: You don't like flight sim controls, Cam?
e_bloc: there are two types of people
CrazyZonie: Also, Hi Foxmar!
UncannyJimjams: Oh snap, I didn't read those screens on the first playthrough-- that's very interesting
elah806: Cameron, with your knowledge of the importance of graphite weights, do you have any insight as to why Scantrons apparently explode if not filled in with #2
Kaorti: containment breach is never a phrase you want to see on an unattended console
TheWooglie: SW Squadrons had it set to normal by default. That screwed me up
ContingentCat: I was today when I learned that, I was always confused about these elusive #2 pencils I'd never actually seen
eshplode: Control with inverted control. I like it
Foxmar320: Ha yeah they will
TehAmelie: hmm my new favorite pen seems to be a BR, for brush
Sogheim: this game is just an SCP gone very bad and I enjoy that
SeiichiSin: I can answer that question Elah.
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
Raiz0k: @RandomTrivia : hah, got one at least ;)!
r10pez10: nothin' wrong with that
krfsm: but the doors ARE locked
mostly_minerals: why is there no alarm
wildpeaks: maybe nobody was able to reach the doors
krfsm: you can't get out
Raiz0k: Also, Cam is one of us!
talosparoxi: lrrCAMERON_SG doesn't lock doors
NightWingMistHawk: Why would regular citizens come here on a normal day?
elah806: @SeiichiSin please do
Foxmar320: Oh yeah this must smell damp
Sarah_Serinde: Reminds me of high school
CrazyZonie: Concrete and plastic Floria?
mostly_minerals: kinda dusty, kinda moist
TehAmelie: it's got a weird soft plastic tip
thetoastmonster: @Raiz0k we are all one of Cam.
Angnor33: The damp earth, slightly musty
SerGarretCameron: Like wax coated rubber.
ContingentCat: they feel like dust

nyperold: "It was balancing a ball on its nose."
Dezufnocosem: Everybody Loves Raytracing
somecall_metim: I stopped playing this part way through. I just fix that
TehAmelie: ooh, tube mail
PixelArtDragon: I love that they have a pneumatic tube system
SeiichiSin: Basically they don't. The reason they require you to use that specific pencil weight/darkness is just because that is what the machine is calibrated to read. It will read other darknesses and weights, but it prefers the mark of a number 2.
CrazyZonie: That bannister is used in some 1960 buildings at Arizona State University.
s0lesurviv0r: god, just realizing they used this architecture a bit at one of the older campuses at my community college
JAndersonCAD: my inner architect is loving this level design so much
dappercuttlefish: this game has such a strong sense of texture and space. I know exactly what everything would feel like, and how I'd sound in it
Juliamon: Things that confuse me every time: only allowing inversion of one axis. My brain prefers inversion of both. Made playing Superliminal tricky.
Easilycrazyhat: This place really likes black highlighters
RandomTrivia: This is PEAK 1970s municipal architecture
Kaorti: mold removal is separate from janitorial huh?
Raiz0k: @thetoastmonster : and Cam is one with all.
JAndersonCAD: i have so much appreciation for the detailing
TraceBullet: get ready for a lot of redacted
Foxmar320: lol
ContingentCat: oh yeah that reminds me, people excited for Blaseball coming back next week?
KevinTheShark: It's so frustrating that we all recognise this building
wildpeaks: totally normal hallway
nyperold: "If we need to hole up in HQ, we need to know that we CAN."
Blade_Tiger: "Don't worry about it Cam" - game
CrazyZonie: Maybe the game is suggesting you LEAVE... REALLY FAST
Foxmar320: Dr. Darling is great
talosparoxi: spoiler warning, the mold removal should not be a minor expenditure
TehAmelie: is that Colonel Sanders? this goes all the way to the top
KevinTheShark: Ahhh the janitor
Easilycrazyhat: Game's like "...you know you don't have to walk everywhere...right?"
innovativemethods: Note the only faces we see are of management, and only after the security gate.
BrindleBoar: "retired"
elah806: Interesting @SeiichiSin. What technology do they use that's sensitive enough to require that kind of calibration?
r10pez10: casper is great
RandomTrivia: Why do I imagine that to be "retired" in the Bladerunner sense...
krfsm: and an ashtray
Raiz0k: Also, it's interesting what Cam is saying re the architectural style. E.g. for me that's pretty much only what I've seen in movies. Must a NA thing.
wildpeaks: even the lighting is so good
Sogheim: coffee mug with the logo of a place that doesn't actually exist?
Ciancon: Picked Control up at the start of Feb and got the plat in a week. Such a wonderful game!
krfsm: that's seen recent use, even
CrazyZonie: Aren't the defibulators "modern tech"?
2Flower: Doors frighten the Cameron.
UncannyJimjams: SO many bathrooms in this game
JAndersonCAD: all the safety signage is great
Raiz0k: I mean, even "old" European institutions don't have that much stone-like materials.
SeiichiSin: No idea, some old stuff usually.
Foxmar320: Yep
Easilycrazyhat: A bit
Foxmar320: Explore explore explore
elah806: Damn I even know what this /bathroom/ smells like
BrindleBoar: there are chests and lore books scattered all over, so exploring has benefits, but it's not necessary
TehAmelie: my town has a movie theater complex built into a castle. . .
SeiichiSin: It honestly even isn't that precise, they just complain as if it is because... Even they don't realize it isn't that precise.
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k This is old 1960's US Federal Building architecture.
Sogheim: it's so quiet, you can't even hear the air conditioner that should be going constantly
thetoastmonster: Control is a beautiful walking sim
UncannyJimjams: totally normal federal building with documents strewn everytwhere
PixelArtDragon: "the mold"
e_bloc: yeah any secret document should be locked when not in use or in transit
TehAmelie: your hands can spread "the mold"
innovativemethods: $50 for a guitar? Good price!
Blade_Tiger: 'THE' mold?
RandomTrivia: T H E M O L D
UncannyJimjams: But they have book club
Easilycrazyhat: Paper doesn't grow on trees, Cam. ...wait

Juliamon: Socks and Ballerinas sounds like a solid band name
Kaorti: T H E M O L D
Raiz0k: Yeah, that's what I'm getting from that as well @CrazyZonie . Both "Eastern" and "Western" architecture is different in that regard.
e_bloc: just like toilet paper
talosparoxi: yeah
nyperold: Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands!
Raiz0k: *European architecture
elah806: Ian talked about this on the Panalysts IIRC
dappercuttlefish: The Mold
Easilycrazyhat: T H E M O L D
Foxmar320: The Mold!
TehAmelie: jeez i already have to play this for myself
Sogheim: acoustic guitar for sale!
wynternyghtynggale: hi everyone
empyreon: less than a cup left in the pot? guess I've had enough coffee for the day!
e_bloc: if you leave one ply on the roll you don't have to replace the roll
Sarah_Serinde: "turns out it's pretty hard"
dappercuttlefish: vanish or "vanish"
talosparoxi: I didn't even notice that mold poster
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Greg gave up on the guitar :(
somecall_metim: @dappercuttlefish yes
RandomTrivia: Attention to detail in this game is absolutely 10/10
Foxmar320: wow
margieargie: "Only unwashed haands spread the moo-old..."
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k My dad was former USAF... I had A LOT of experience with buildings like this. And it didn't stop when I went to ASU for college in the 90s
Easilycrazyhat: Magic Cabinet
BrindleBoar: NotLikeThis
Creideiki_SE: I just remembered that Cam said copyrighted music is turned off for the stream. For those who want the Finnish metal anyway: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEIcgXCWfDwWWCIuTfpv_DQ
s0lesurviv0r: OR someone dumps twenty scoops in the coffee maker and dumps mud into the jar
JakeKamas: The clock was wonderfully sad
Foxmar320: I love the vending machines
krfsm: lrrWOW
TehAmelie: jeez again, 40 dollars
niccus: ooh, my house has one of those
Easilycrazyhat: They have different names for some reason
SurfDownstage: I like their branding
innovativemethods: I *love* this packaging
Sogheim: I like that vending machine
TheElrad: they have no brand names :D
e_bloc: the maternity ward actually does have one of those (at least in the hospital we went to)
snailkane: i like these non-brand snacks
Easilycrazyhat: It's above your clearance to know
talosparoxi: almonds?
Raiz0k: Re defibrillators: in theory, you can make them with just capacitors and other passive electronic elements. Although of course modern AED's are full of "smart" electronics.
EvilBadman: aLMONDS?
eshplode: It's basically No Name brand
e_bloc: almonds?
Kaorti: that vending machine tells some sort of story
2Flower: I too enjoy a food.
Astiahl: Hot & Spicy:tm:
JAndersonCAD: tamales?
Dared00: I love the packaging, because it actually follows the "no representations" lore we found earlier
s0lesurviv0r: can't have Frito-Lay finding government secrets
e_bloc: sounds nice
JAndersonCAD: like the candy
EvilBadman: arf, thanks capslock
TehAmelie: those pistachio bags are HUGE. possibly lethal doses of protein
SurfDownstage: Vending machines are like prisons
ArdCollider: would absolutely be the Negativland song that got U2 to sue them
elah806: Why is it always "hot & spicy." What if I just wanted "spicy" and not "hot"
BrindleBoar: sort of, yes
innovativemethods: oh that *flag*. that is such a government office flag.
Kaorti: safety measure
Easilycrazyhat: No branding, remember? (rubber ducks, etc)
talosparoxi: peanuts > almonds, that's my hot take of the day
InkyGhoast: we have that flag
KevinTheShark: I enjoy that they've rationalised not having branded food packaging in the vending machines
Raiz0k: Kind of like early Archer, eh?
Foxmar320: So much REDACTED
Decaped: if things are too small, the demons get in.
TehAmelie: this is poetry
wildpeaks: there is a lore explanation besides security, but yeah, it's a sweet easthetic
margieargie: It could also be "we got this 40 years ago and haven't bothered/don't have the budget to replace it"?
EvilBadman: @Raiz0k Archer was purposely ambiguous on extract time setting
devil_dan: The oldest house doesn’t like new tech.
elah806: I suspect there's some management that is as reticent to retire as they are to digitize
Easilycrazyhat: Definitely not "Secure, Contain, Protect"...>.>
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : there is no such thing as to much pistachio, the Nut Inquisition will see you shortly.
krfsm: I inherited a set of surplus military document drawers in a room I used to live in; sadly I didn't really have anywhere to put them when I moved out
RandomTrivia: G A M E P L A Y
Foxmar320: No im here for this
Kaorti: this IS the gameplay
Dared00: this *is* gameplay ;D
wildpeaks: don't worry Cam, this is gameplay :D
e_bloc: this ain't gameplay simulator
TheElrad: and then I redacted it right into the redacted readacted and then there was redacted all over the redacted
TemporallyAwry: unarmeGameplay unarmeHmm
SurfDownstage: Isn't this the gameplay?
snailkane: relatable
Pteraspidomorphi: I watched Paul's full playthrough :D
Drea713: if you're expecting gameplay, why did you click on the stream called talking sim lol
talosparoxi: this is talking sim, no gameplay necessary
PixelArtDragon: This is talking sim, we're here for the talking
2Flower: It's cool. Most of the posters and paper eventually repeat, so stopping to look now works.
lemmel: Nope, I love this. Its like watching somebody tour my workplace.
InkyGhoast: i thought the point of this game was to read all the paper
djalternative: to put in terms the game would use, no technology can exist within the oldest house if it hasn't been in the human morphic field/collective conscious long enough
dappercuttlefish: i'm just vibing with feeling like i'm in a place that isn't my house
CrazyZonie: Cam, If I was expecting gameplay, I wouldn't watch anyone playing Control.
Raiz0k: @EvilBadman : kind of the same thing here, but on a more meta level, right :)?
eshplode: The no-longer-white board
Easilycrazyhat: yeah, this basically *is* the gameplay for Control
MWGNZ: or the right marker, but left it up there for 6 months
TehAmelie: i love pistachios but it's just chemistry, if you ate one of those bags in one sitting you'd die
elah806: It's fine at this point in Paul's playthrough he was making snow with time cards
niccus: translation seems to be roughly "I, an investigator, gain power"
SerGarretCameron: or stuck tape to it and had to try to remove it, and now the glue will never come off.
PixelArtDragon: Sometimes it's just an inferior whiteboard at fault
couldntpickausername: I did that once and was able to fix it, there's a couple ways.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: What!? No, Control is like tarkov, if we remove the inventory sorting and add in picking up files
Wolfstrike_NL: Sharpies are now forbidden from entering the building
Raiz0k: That's probably the totally harmless janitor.
CMDRNuffin: or it's just a cheap-ass whiteboard. we have them at my workplace too
ArdCollider: friend of mine worked at a place where someone wrote a root password on the whiteboard in sharpie
AlexFGaming: I am expecting only enough gameplay for you to understnad the Stupendium's rap on it afterwards
KevinTheShark: So... Discover, Investigate, Control
Decaped: Let's talk about the redaction, when you're writing a redacted note do you write the part that's redacted or do you not or is it cheap to do one way or the other?
TheMerricat: It's 'bad' latin so...
Easilycrazyhat: "Did you get the memo about TPS reports?"
corianderd: @ArdCollider :O
innovativemethods: our whiteboards at work do that too. black just doesn't erase clean if you leave it up for a month or two.
RomanGoro: Has Cameron encountered Threshold Kids already?
krfsm: or someone has left permanent markers that look like whiteboard pens in the pen holder on the whiteboard.
Easilycrazyhat: @RomanGoro That
InkyGhoast: ive also received this memo
InkyGhoast: i hate how real this game is
Easilycrazyhat: 's quite a bit farther in
mostly_minerals: g g gg goooost?

ComradeMik: god I love this game
RomanGoro: Thanks, Easilycrazyhat
beckbat: try going back
ComradeMik: it's so good
Easilycrazyhat: Oh look, that janitor.
thetoastmonster: My only regret is that this is Talking Sim, not Play It Forward
wynternyghtynggale: best character <3
djalternative: oh good. I got here in time for ahti
Wolfstrike_NL: sergeFriend
Raiz0k: @CrazyZonie : I would lie if I'd say I hadn't any experience with that aesthetic, but still, it feels subjectively more oppressive than Soviet-era brutalism. At least that one used stuff that was more "alive", like limestone.
CrazyZonie: Remember the painting with the janitor.
PixelArtDragon: Hey, it's that guy from the painting!
KevinTheShark: He's got headphones in :D
dappercuttlefish: I do not trust him to have a face
wildpeaks: Ahti <3
e_bloc: the walkman is a nice touch
Easilycrazyhat: I love his accent
Masslost: i think i had that walkman as a kid
Crokoking: i really like that they went with "finnish" for "weird" instead of the usual suspects
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k The big thing about that architecture was it was supposed to survive a nuclear blast.

somecall_metim: he looks like the cigarette smoking man
thetoastmonster: @Orgmastron Yes, I watched that, but I would also enjoy watching Cam PIF too
somecall_metim: SHe thought that! how did he hear!
CubedPapayas: love him responding to her thoughts
krfsm: "there'll be work for the axe", that's a phrasing
RandomTrivia: UH
Raiz0k: Ha, that's how they get you!
ComradeMik: I love the Finnish accent
InkyGhoast: UH SIR THAT
dappercuttlefish: god damn ahti and i are on the same page
Blade_Tiger: did he just hear our internal monologue
PixelArtDragon: Wait, he just responded to our inner thoughts
Kaorti: Ahti just responded to our inner monologue
djalternative: ahti can hear your inner monologue
eshplode: Did he just respond to her thoughts?
InkyGhoast: that was my inside voice
Astiahl: (Yes, he responded to an internal thought)
wildpeaks: replying to something we were thinking, totally normal
CubedPapayas: yeahhhh
RandomTrivia: Did he reply to our inner monologue?
TheWooglie: PixelArtDragon I just thought that
UncannyJimjams: He looks like a very old David Lynch too
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
ComradeMik: also ahti is a very important person
somecall_metim: @LoadingReadyRun he heared her thought "He's a friendly face"
Mushbie: @randomtrivia yup
snailkane: @krfsm it's a Finnish idiom too :)
Raiz0k: Not sure if publicly-visible governmental architecture anywhere was supposed to endure that, more like "generate the impression that it would" @CrazyZonie .
SurfDownstage: I missed the beginning, why are we in this building?
s0lesurviv0r: replying to thoughts lrrFINE
RandomTrivia: That seems normal
eshplode: I had no intention of playing this game, but after watching like 5 minutes, I want to go pick this up
krfsm: anyways, we're past 11 PM here, so I'm going to crash out since I need to start working relatively early tomorrow. gotta catch this on the vod tomorrow.
vegetalss4: Yes please
asthanius: Janus strikes yet again
Raiz0k: "Janitor is the English word for Lu Tze"
AziraphalesShop: Dr. Jan Itor
wildpeaks: interesting hallway
e_bloc: why wouldn't we?
somecall_metim: honestly don't most of our words have origins in latin?
TheMerricat: "Appropriately, janitor derives from the Latin janus, meaning β€œarch” or β€œgate.” As an occupation, the word originally referred to one who keeps guard at an entry gate: At the expiration of that time, wheels were heard whirling up to the gate--the young janitor went out with his gate-keys."
Raiz0k: Hah, we have.
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k Well, what I know of physics, it can, so long as it's not in the 50 mile radius of the blast.
Orgmastron: SurfDownstage For reasons to be revealed later
djalternative: oh. that's who Ahti is?!?! That makes so much sense now.
ruscobrog: portal god
Kaorti: god of gateways, the new year etc
Sogheim: did you make a loop?
ameliette: and on the topic of gods, ahti is just a new poseidon :p
RandomTrivia: Fascinating. This is why Talking Sim is best LRR stream
niccus: oh hey that was where his painting was
Foxmar320: Yep
asthanius: If this stream had a bingo card, Janus would be a free space
Foxmar320: Building shifted
Easilycrazyhat: Did it change?
TehAmelie: the word in swedish is vaktmΓ€stare, or guard-master
better_seasons: hey was that elevator thier before?
Easilycrazyhat: Or was it always like this?
Foxmar320: Totally normal
devil_dan: I love this game.
niccus: crappers are constant
brainbosh: I mean, someons just turned on the lights
ComradeMik: you have been given permission to enter
beckbat: so, that loop doesn't make physical sense
Easilycrazyhat: What's the original hallway look like?
KevinTheShark: The building.... may or may not change more or less a lot....or not at al
Raiz0k: @CrazyZonie : ...and anything that's in any remotely "major" city (and hence hosting such buildings) would be :).
RandomTrivia: Ah, we've been Antichamber'd
Sogheim: you did have a warning that time spent due to changes does not count towards overtime
beckbat: and the elevator appeared
MrTheWalrus: I also really like this game, even though it's a genre I don't typically enjoy.
Creideiki_SE: Luckily, crappers are usually fine. I think only one leads to a vast white void?
wildpeaks: ah yes, lack of cool music
KevinTheShark: Yaaay, opening credits
djalternative: oh. I just remembered, the last line of dialogue in the story is ABSOLUTELY GOLDEN
snailkane: This is where copyright music would play
asthanius: Remedy does such good title sequences
niccus: it's time for the pilot episode
josh___something: @KevinTheShark that sounds more distressing
Creideiki_SE: No Poets of the Fall :(
SurfDownstage: movie night?
CubedPapayas: sad no ashtray maze song
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, it doesn't take long to figure out this game's "thing"
dappercuttlefish: a banging metal tracks
Robot_Bones: To find out what's behind... the scary door
RandomTrivia: Oh this is MORE unsettling
asthanius: Remedy has a metal band
TehAmelie: Finnish metal, i hear
wildpeaks: it is nice that they have at least a fallback, not completely silent like Life is Strange 2

snailkane: @CubedPapayas that's still in :)
TheMerricat: Yes, I expect Control to someday become a show ala Fringe
RandomTrivia: Let's Nope has come early today!
Foxmar320: It's mostly music from Poets of the Fall that was either made for this game or off their album
Hangedman: Credits also has some
beckbat: there's just 1 sequence
ComradeMik: there's a couple of songs from a band associated with the deva
ComradeMik: *devs
innovativemethods: damn that's a good title drop
beckbat: God's of the old world
Astiahl: Modern gothic glam metal
CubedPapayas: oh ok good, that one slaps
ameliette: theres also some radios in the office that wont play anything with the copyright music off
Khalahd: Oh wow PotF did stuff for this, also? Niceee

RomanGoro: That's a lot of lightbulbs
TehAmelie: i just have Crosby, Stills & Nash stuck on my mind since watching Annihilation
e_bloc: ah mystery solved
talosparoxi: much better
CrazyZonie: I think it's one of those BaoBao trees from Africa.
Foxmar320: Yeah Poets did two songs specifically for this game and some of their music is also just featured in it.
Raiz0k: Damn, now I'm hungry for some pistachios.
Alas_Babylon: Eat Rope
2Flower: Just eat this sweater.
SurfDownstage: Well you want more than one, don't you?
Easilycrazyhat: Fibers (plural) is never food
asthanius: Fibrous Bar
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @Khalahd yeah, If it weren't for the lack of copyright, "Take Control" would turn up later by them too
TemporallyAwry: I love the "generic government packaging" vending machine goods.
TehAmelie: a variety of fibers
innovativemethods: mm, rope
dappercuttlefish: these would probably be ominous if they didn't have no name energy
GamesAndInk: A bar of fiber has bran in it. A bar of fibers has a shirt in it.
somecall_metim: tooooobs
EvilBadman: Many fibers, much regular
ComradeMik: protein fivres
talosparoxi: protein fibers, you know, muscle
RandomNetGhost: Fiber seems like bread. Fibers seems like a sentient tendril forcing its way down your throat.
Alas_Babylon: Is that a siren or is someone playing Pac-Man?
ComradeMik: *fibres
InkyGhoast: tuuuubes
empyreon: mmmmm hair-brick
Kaorti: the security post probably shouldn't be empty
BrindleBoar: This is fine.
TheAinMAP: lrrSIGNAL
Foxmar320: Take Control is an awesome song
RandomTrivia: UH
ameliette: bc 'fiber' registers as an uncountable noun. its like hair vs hairs
rendelnep: mmm nylon. cotton AND hemp
CrazyZonie: Cam, my company still uses pneumatic tubes to move meds around our hospitals.
RandomTrivia: Welp
asthanius: This game's physics are a delight
Khalahd: @NarwhalsInATrenchcoat That's super cool, I love how involved they get
Easilycrazyhat: I get big "Alice Isn't Dead" vibes from this game.
KevinTheShark: Those cabinets shouldnt be open
RandomTrivia: *boop*
wildpeaks: sometimes physics just.. happen
Kaorti: that cup should probably have an inside
Raiz0k: I mean, "Fruit by the Foot" would also look ominous in that packaging design.
margieargie: I feel like that sort of Physics! actually works here...
Decaped: I like how all the US flags shout "We're too proud to take our own advice about iconography"
innovativemethods: "fruit leather, measured"
djalternative: Note: you can filter to only unread collectables
Alas_Babylon: Sorry about the blood loss related to the Alaskan scissors
Dared00: you can't paste Loss.png into the letter
2Flower: Must not be canadian.
elah806: I do kind of miss the havoc engine where you brush anything and it's immediately at escape velocity
samwisep86: Alaska?
dappercuttlefish: I enjoy the simultaneous "memetic hazard" and "style guide" vibes
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, filtering out seen collectibles becomes pretty useful as you get *a lot* of them.
Raiz0k: Oooh, pneumo!
ComradeMik: @samwisep86 we don't talk about Alaska
Creideiki_SE: @samwisep86 Don't mention that.
KevinTheShark: I laugh every time i see someone reacting to that square hole video
TehAmelie: i can smell that tube system, somehow
nyperold: You know, that incident with the baked Alaska...
somecall_metim: @elah806 arma 3 must be built out of that then. Tanks get yeeted from a pebble
TehAmelie: never seen anything like it in real life and yet
Foxmar320: Ummmm
Easilycrazyhat: That sounds fine.
samwisep86: Well I’m here in Alaska, so...
CubedPapayas: i kind of wish tehre was a game where you just wandered around this office, looking at papers and such
Masslost: I wish control got its own tv show
2Flower: lrrFINE
CrazyZonie: Sounded like a drawer being slammed to me.
ameliette: @NarwhalsInATrenchcoat i watched a not-copyright playthrough of this earlier, and i recall 'take control' defintiely playing there
talosparoxi: it was a "gun" shot
wildpeaks: the call to adventure
RandomTrivia: Hi Ian!
Raiz0k: Is anyone else thinking "Trench" is a lowkey reference for "Gears"?
ComradeMik: @samwisep86 my sympathies
Easilycrazyhat: This isn't dnd. you have to progress the game yourself.
Alas_Babylon: DM: "You hear a gunshot in the other room." Players: "We dabble around the room for four hours"
Kaorti: rules say to talk at a moderate volume.
elah806: The open plan-ness of it all is kind of disconcerting
RandomTrivia: Classic "Oh no! Anyway-" gameplay
ComradeMik: I dunno, the oldest house feels like it could deaden sound if it wanted
TehAmelie: dabbling is a free action
KevinTheShark: The epitome of "The Silence was DEAFENING"
RomanGoro: What game does this game happen in? 2015 something like that?
InkyGhoast: chair goes screeek
Vincent_VonDoom: Open concept offices :(
RandomTrivia: Set dressing magazines
Alas_Babylon: Literal hashtag content
TehAmelie: Visually Interesting magazine
ComradeMik: @romangoro sometime in the late 2010s
Easilycrazyhat: "I didn't do it!"
Alas_Babylon: CW friends
ComradeMik: maybe even concurrent with its release year
Raiz0k: "You want me"?
Easilycrazyhat: The sumbols
Easilycrazyhat: *symbols
asthanius: She's talking to someone
InkyGhoast: she's talking to the traingles
talosparoxi: you'll find out
somecall_metim: the darkenss!
wildpeaks: chyrStairs
Easilycrazyhat: I <3 the board's translations XD
Dezufnocosem: I don't know if this game uses it, but the technology for raytracing light bouncing can also be used to simulate sound bouncing in the environment
PixelArtDragon: Why was the gun talking to us?
Raiz0k: Ah, so the pistol is a Metaobject.
Decaped: OOPS, so on the nose.
RandomTrivia: Those gloves have strong TF2 Medic energy
Easilycrazyhat: @PixelArtDragon Not the gun, The Board
ComradeMik: technically the gun wasn't talking
TheMerricat: Back when I was a kid my Dad used to take me to the yearly 'vendor' convention that was held on the Air Force base he worked on, I loved collecting the magazines they'd pass out, you'd be amazed at the weird shit that vendors would try to sell in them.
ComradeMik: the board is talking through the gun
Foxmar320: :D
talosparoxi: right?
Alas_Babylon: 2 minuts in and we're already in the Astral Plane
Kaorti: The Board is processing your application
RomanGoro: :D
asthanius: What if Art Deco Brutalism?
somecall_metim: the translations the x/y is great
AlexFGaming: I love the idea of you must choose to be the chosen one
s0lesurviv0r: clzHype
KevinTheShark: The design in this game is MAGNIFICENT
BrindleBoar: I love the gold streaks in the black "marble"
TehAmelie: wait the Board is talking the Invisibles transdimensional language
wildpeaks: this place was definitely influenced by Dishonored The Void
ruscobrog: The word pairings are great.

AlexFGaming: It's very intriguing
talosparoxi: the visuals in this game are so striking
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I'm so glad that Cam is enjoying this
Orgmastron: "You must choose to be the Chosen One" is *chef's kiss*
Mantafold: Ah kingdom heart I love this game
Dezufnocosem: refilling the coffee pot is now known as "Completing the Astral Plane challenge"
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : I'm guessing you're not just talking about the many, many varieties of ammo and other ordnance :).
margieargie: Oh, right, I remember all those YouTube videos about wannabe influencers doing the Astral Plane Challenge
Easilycrazyhat: I would trip all the time if I had a floor like this
Easilycrazyhat: and fall into the abyss, probably
Dared00: there might be a hot dog outfit? Kappa
Mattmitchell45: LRR should all get fitted Streamer Jackets
djalternative: will we be allowed to get the cat ears for her?
TehAmelie: hey i remember this part from a Watch + Play game
talosparoxi: the mirror outfit is my favorite of the ones I've found so far
Mysticman89: I don't know if you can actually dress as a hot dog mascot, but it'd be neat
wildpeaks: such a lovely material
KevinTheShark: These bits are basically platforming segments... with some combat
CupOfAether: dress up in my existential game? amazing!
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k nope, more like "do you need a hardened 1.5 gigaflop CPU for your project? we've got twelve different models!"
JAndersonCAD: i love that marbling
RandomTrivia: *BONK*
Easilycrazyhat: <Do not mind the Shadow Man>
Foxmar320: That man went away
Alas_Babylon: m'lee
TraceBullet: m'lee
Scy_Anide: Jedi powers activate!
TheElrad: cause the gun is currently pointed at your head?

KevinTheShark: It's a "gun"
Kaorti: it's the concept of "weapon"
Mattmitchell45: I Weapon to Serve
RomanGoro: Gun/House is such interesting wording
ComradeMik: shame that last time I saw it with RTX it ran at seconds per frame
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : Hah. "Do you want this bunker enclosing a full-scale PS3 cluster"?
vegetalss4: The melee in this game is very cool looking. I remember Paul used it a lot when he first gained it.

talosparoxi: you can aim better with the zoom button, L2
CupOfAether: headshots are bonus points!
innovativemethods: 1.5 gigaflop is approx Pentium 4 speeds btw
Easilycrazyhat: One criticsm I have of this game is that the PC runs like she's carrying the gun even before she gets it or if she's not carrying it.
wildpeaks: the storage pocket
Decaped: the gestalt gun.
margieargie: How can you show off your gamer cred without headshots, though?
SurfDownstage: I'd argue that *all* of me is important
Gekyouryuu: Service the Weapon? oh, it's a Sex Pistol. Kappa
wildpeaks: "nice face" "thanks, it has a pocket"
Raiz0k: "Hello, Vsauce here"
CrazyZonie: Cam, the face holes stuff fails when you put holes in the support machinery below the face holes.
xantos69: The good news about guns/people...is that it doesn't particularly matter where the holes happen if you make enough of them happen the job gets done.
snowewolf: oh hello cam and everyone, i am real human person
talosparoxi: I love the thing the r2 button does for the trigger on ps5
TehAmelie: heh, you get the progamer crossed-out crosshairs when you hit
MrTheWalrus: You wield you.
Easilycrazyhat: "You/We"?
djalternative: I love how the board speaks
Easilycrazyhat: It's great
wildpeaks: <Don't worry/Everything is fine>
snailkane: i love how they use live action cutscenes in this game
CrazyZonie: @MrTheWalrus You wield gun/we wield you
Raiz0k: Also, the gun looks HUGE in her hand.
RandomTrivia: Oh cool, a sentient magic weapon!
Easilycrazyhat: Basically
talosparoxi: a regular gun would
RandomTrivia: A .44 Magnum probably counts
TehAmelie: i imagine that gun happened because people brought in a bunch of 1911s
snowewolf: No but also yes
ComradeMik: well, this specific gun yes
Raiz0k: Cam, they essentially said that at the start, didn't they?
RomanGoro: Cam, could you move a bit more to the side? You're covering some of the subtitles
Astiahl: Just communicating hyperreal concepts to your fragile meatbrain. Everything is fine.
Kaorti: "I have a phonecall for Lars Gerhart"
TheMerricat: This gun is your badge of office.
TheElrad: you are the new director
NatShido: psychopass vibes.
innovativemethods: It absolutely is. it's The Service Weapon, the archetype of weapons weilded by Federal Agents
Decaped: this specific gun feels more like a thing that is pretending to be a gun
ComradeMik: but other guns it's a little less clear
wildpeaks: welcome, director
Easilycrazyhat: Those pictures were totally there before >.>
ameliette: "You wield gun/we wield you" also house-board-gun-director are tied together
MrTheWalrus: That person is you. You are the director, therefore the portraits of the director are of you.
Sogheim: the gun feels like something that wants very much to be like a gun but it's not always correct
Fofo57007: they are HUGE
e_bloc: I'm director? always have been slash meme
KevinTheShark: Halfway Cigars
JqlGirl: cigarillos
SirMorek: they're like FINGERS
ComradeMik: given that there are security personnel with guns
Zhedor: was that always your picture?
niccus: pirouettes
Easilycrazyhat: Cigar-rettes?
TehAmelie: that's not a cigar. . .
ComradeMik: Corinthians?
Ed25519: delicious?
mostly_minerals: yeeeeah
Raiz0k: So that you can stick them in your enormous gun.
RandomTrivia: Delicious, Cam. You're looking for the word "delicious"
talosparoxi: it's like the size of the bottle pening
Jorsh029: pirouettes
s0lesurviv0r: pirolines?
InkyGhoast: pirouettes?

Juliamon: It's not that bad
Raiz0k: @talosparoxi : fair enough, but those had *filters*. If those acquaintances of yours roll cigs like that with filters, you probably need to ask them about their homes in the clouds.
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : don
Raiz0k: 't worry about that, it's better this way than have a bitly or sth black hole.
corianderd: Found the Vandermeer blog thingy I was reading before stream https://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2009/06/28/the-new-weird-anthology-notes-and-introduction/
TehAmelie: i usually use imgur but then, it just happens to be down
TheMerricat: holy cow, chat, last week my region was below zero in temps for pretty much the entire week, today I'm trying to decide if I need to turn on the AC....
Raiz0k: Yeah, we're getting projected temps of 14-17 here.
Dared00: same, in a week and a half we went from -10 to +19
Raiz0k: That's climate change for you.
somecall_metim: this stream made me re-download the game. I'll finish it this time, instead of getting distracted.
TehAmelie: here we have had 200 cm of snow in about a month. and also blistering cold
Juliamon: Would Blaseball count as new weird
TehAmelie: absotuvely
Raiz0k: It would.
wildpeaks: I already re-downloaded Ghost of a Tale and Sunless Skies, I'll wait until I finally have a rtx gpu to reinstall control :D
s0lesurviv0r: just bought this game on steam then realized with my whole family online, have to wait to download it overnight clzStress
elah806: Winter just broke here in Buffalo, up until a day or two ago it was in the teens and then suddenly midday one day it was in the 30s, and now forecasts aren't below freezing for the near future
wildpeaks: welcome back chyrCoffee
SurfDownstage: hai
Decaped: this game comes with next month's Humbe Bundle, and is also free on PSplus this month.
Kaorti: agreed
TehAmelie: otherwise it's 40 money points on Steam right now. a bit steep
Spluuga: it has finnish sense of humor to be precise
KevinTheShark: The board. A faceless conglomorate of voices
ContingentCat: a board of damiclies
Kaorti: immensity and a bad translation job
Easilycrazyhat: Why would it be? It's yours.
Brozard: Hmm, as much as I want to watch this, I haven't played Control and don't want to spoil it...
elah806: The streaming edition on Switch works pretty smoothly as well
CrazyZonie: Cam, did the room change when you took the gun?
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie: Over here we had pretty much the typical winter from back about ~20 yrs ago, so maybe not as much snow, but still down to almost -20Β°C at night on occassion.
snowewolf: look at the pictures cam
niccus: ooh, what time is it
Kaorti: such a good jaw
margieargie: Huh, are those the flags that mean you're under admiralty law or however the conspiracy theory goes?
RandomTrivia: "Soon may the Otherman come, to speak to us and steal our gun"
Raiz0k: Very charismatic jawline, that.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Of course it's not a man's shirt, this is the Director's office, and you're the Director
innovativemethods: that's us, in a picture we never posed for.
Easilycrazyhat: "This is your office. Do not touch the phone."
Masslost: that white shirt hanging up looks like the one in picture
Rhynerd: Just some floating people in a red room
niccus: nice mood lighting for a government building
RandomTrivia: Uh
Raiz0k: Oooh, a live action mix!
snailkane: i love the use of live action image
Easilycrazyhat: The live action bits are dope
TehAmelie: new weird is rebranded horror confirmed!
Raiz0k: Well, they said it!
somecall_metim: huh never noticed they used bullpups
Laserbeaks_Fury: The Service Weapon is *such* a Destiny gun
Raiz0k: The live action was quite nicely mixed.
RandomTrivia: Did somebody superhero land here/!
RandomTrivia: ?
ContingentCat: um?
Easilycrazyhat: That looks like red marble?
KevinTheShark: Well, thats unfortunate
margieargie: Shouldn't have dropped that liquid nitrogen canister
MrTheWalrus: Turns out the carpet is just painted on. For budget reasons.
Rhynerd: The carpet was concrete this whole time
Dared00: the destructibility in this game kicks ass and looks so cool
TheMerricat: Chat, I mentioned just prior to the steam starting officially that Humble indicated their March Choice bundle would include Control in it. They just announced the full game list for March's bundle if you were interested - https://www.reddit.com/r/humblebundles/comments/lqoq4b/march_2021_choice_reveal/ they switched things up this month to moving the charge for each month from the first Friday of the month to the Monday prior of the month (i.e. today for March) so I'm not sure when you
KV1NN4: not sure if carpet of textured poured concrete?
RaemonDamon: Cam should melee something loose
s0lesurviv0r: don't use "gun" on floor surfaces
innovativemethods: honestly painted on concrete isn't the dumbest thing I've heard.
TheMerricat: get the games, today or still on the first friday of march but....
Easilycrazyhat: Oh look, a new hallway
beckbat: take a look at the office door
Kaorti: hello us
KevinTheShark: You do get that outfit later
Laserbeaks_Fury: I love the explanation for all the retro tech, have we found that text yet?
somecall_metim: odd that she doesn't react to seeing her paintings
Raiz0k: Also, at this point I wonder whether the "3 floating bodies on a monocolor background" archetype is derived from some single source.
Easilycrazyhat: Are we wearing the jacket in the painted portrait?
Foxmar320: Map could be better honestly
Dared00: oh yeah, no, the map in Control *suuuucks*
Foxmar320: Signs are frands
Easilycrazyhat: Oh great, more voices in our head.
talosparoxi: god that line gave me some shining flashbacks
Gamshyd: i find the map in this game deliberately is what it is
innovativemethods: @raiz0k I want to speculate that it's religious - Jesus and the two theives at Calgary. but I have nothing to back this up.
talosparoxi: you've always been the director jesse
mostly_minerals: "ok"
Easilycrazyhat: She's so accepting of all of this XD
RandomTrivia: The map probably isn't helped by the fact it seems to be concealing ever-shifting level geometry
Easilycrazyhat: Evil misty enemies
wildpeaks: how does one map a non-euclidian space
Foxmar320: Im sure its fine
KevinTheShark: There's a wonderfully intrinstic distinction in this game of Red is BAD
Raiz0k: @innovativemethods : holy (literally) crap, I think you're right! There's even a Soviet Block joke about that, I'm ashamed about forgetting about actually xD.

Easilycrazyhat: Dr. Darling!
CrazyZonie: isn't Cam supposed to pick up those cyan droplets?
Easilycrazyhat: This is the whole thing
Kaorti: in more depth
Laserbeaks_Fury: It was playing is a cutscene, but not the focus
Gamshyd: @LoadingReadyRun the menu accessed videos are longer cuts
Foxmar320: It's a little different
Easilycrazyhat: We saw part of it
Kaorti: we had a clip before
CubedPapayas: yeah you can just view the whole thing while the game is paused
TheMerricat: @CrazyZonie the cyan droplets are health pickups, you need to be hurt to pick them up
IbunWest: These videos are delightful.
Ferisar: they are a bit extended in the collectibles
Nosser2: Sometimes parts of the video are cut off in the game but you get the whole thing in the collectable menu.
djalternative: The versions in the log are often longer and uncut
Laserbeaks_Fury: hehe...fired
KevinTheShark: I love this guy
Easilycrazyhat: I love the extras, hah.
wildpeaks: chyrCube
talosparoxi: slightly different yes
CubedPapayas: theres some videos taht are on TVs, and once you see them you can watch them easier in the menu thing
CrazyZonie: @TheMerricat Thanks
NightWingMistHawk: Oh wow I see the SCP influence in this game
TemporallyAwry: note to self, acquire an ominous metal cube
somecall_metim: praise the c u b e
Raiz0k: So.... the cube is a form of the Service Weapon, right? Or some form of "reality anchor" for that?
Easilycrazyhat: We don't know much about this House, but it's clearly the Oldest.
innovativemethods: they put the office where the gun is. that's wonderful.
PixelArtDragon: Maybe this is the oldest weapon?
UncannyJimjams: What a helpful memo!
NatShido: So we're Warehouse 13.
Easilycrazyhat: I don't think they have much choice where anything goes, tbh
Juliamon: The cube seems like the "default" form, and it adapts to the user
RandomTrivia: So we chose to be the Chosen One
Foxmar320: We run this place now
RandomTrivia: Like they said earlier! Neat!
Laserbeaks_Fury: No such thing as a Tautology in this game
somecall_metim: the pyramid did say you have to choose to be the chosen one
Kaorti: now that we have the gun, we were always the director :P
InkyGhoast: I wish job apps were that simple
KevinTheShark: There'll be plenty of places for that later
TheMerricat: "isten, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!"
SkylerRingtail: Lord I hope not
Wicker_Guide: i have the magic weapon. look at me, I'm in charge now
UncannyJimjams: I can say from experience no they do not
Wicker_Guide: some do
Easilycrazyhat: The House likes us.
Foxmar320: From my experience? The VA sure does
InkyGhoast: so is this like a GS14-GS15 situation or
Kaorti: no, this is the game trying to make sure we notice
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun depends if the appointee to the directorship was a Trump nominee or not :/
NatShido: incredibly excessive from my experience.
Angnor33: Usually more pictures of the President. Director is typically only in the main lobbies, maybe a few conference rooms.
Ivalenz_: You'll see POTUS more often then the Director.
snowewolf: i think it is how the house tells everyone there is a new director
better_seasons: one immagines turn-over is rather high
dappercuttlefish: Taking a guess: there's the Oldest House, and the Weapon... so we're not allowed to bring in archetypal items because they might stop being a thing and start being a Thing?
niccus: it makes more sense if the role of director can change at any time and you need to know
SoldieroFortune: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:17:51.
comrade_cutesteww: There are always $50,000 portraits of the directors in fed buildings
Easilycrazyhat: Those in and out tones on are great
DoktorNik: The US Air Force and Army Also have too many pictures of Director's and COmmanders
kumatsu: The Ur-Cart
TehAmelie: the bottles MAY be in a different arrangement
innovativemethods: this is The Cart
RandomTrivia: That seems more normal for a government building. Everything is standardised
PixelArtDragon: The Refreshment Cart is a very subtle OoP
Blade_Tiger: The Oldest Refreshment Cart
TheMerricat: has cam actually listened to the chant yet?
niccus: just hangin' out
Easilycrazyhat: There's not a lot of variety in this game, but it works pretty well
PixelArtDragon: Mood
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : or walking around with extrusions into our reality resembling a parody of a gun.
GhostValv: Mondays... am I right?
KevinTheShark: They thought they could get away with duplicating it. But YOU wouldnt let that stand with these devs
UncannyJimjams: In my building there's a picture of the agency director, the secretary, and the president in the lobby and some conference rooms. Certainly not in almost every room on every floor
talosparoxi: government standard refreshment cart
NightWingMistHawk: When is this game set?
TehAmelie: humans float when they die, or is that fish
kyless2106: This game is so deeply amazing on so many levels!!!
EvilBadman: There are many regulations for the assortment and assemblage of [CART]
Wolfstrike_NL: Carry on Kevin, great job, hang in there
InkyGhoast: are we allowed to say spoilers for this? I wanted to say a fun fact about one of the DLCs
Laserbeaks_Fury: I like to think the lack of diversity is a deliberate style choice
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun @InkyGhoast has a good question
JqlGirl: Clear out your desk. You're [REDACTED]
EvilBadman: I'd avoid spoilers unless they said otherwise, tbh. Seems like a healthy mix of new to game and nto?
Foxmar320: Normal hallway
EvilBadman: not*
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's Talking Sim
Kaorti: it didn't help though
Laserbeaks_Fury: Spoilers are a part of the duiscussion
RandomTrivia: Huh.
Easilycrazyhat: Glad to see they have sound proofing
TheMerricat: @EvilBadman I'd normally say no spoilers but Talking Sim is a special sort of stream and often we do do spoilers since a lot of times it furthers the discussion.
Rhynerd: So. The bunkers protect from model texturing
PixelArtDragon: Vetted?
Raiz0k: @Laserbeaks_Fury : yeah, as we already discussed, it's supposed to invoke a Cold War black ops agency, which weren't exactly known for affirmative action.

Raiz0k: Oh, Duluth! I know that one from Ticket to Ride!

SquareDotCube: "so uh... hang out here often?"
wildpeaks: we all float down here
UncannyJimjams: Marhsall is the head of... security I think? Or internal affairs? She has the soldiers
RandomNetGhost: @LoadingReadyRun What's the policy on in-chat spoiler discussion for this game?
Kaorti: that's a lot of shelter for 6 people
CrazyZonie: Yeah, Cam. Don't go shooting the guy for just hanging around while he waits for the company to give him more orders.
innovativemethods: the ratchet mechanic to open th see doors is super impressive.
talosparoxi: I didn't even realise you could close those doors from the inside
PixelArtDragon: BIG TEXT
KevinTheShark: Ohhh, such aesthetic
wildpeaks: that title drop
better_seasons: man when cams in charge, termination ends up being by whim?
Easilycrazyhat: Invasive sound. Creepy.
somecall_metim: it's our enemy, comrade
innovativemethods: @kaorti there's a provisions bunker, and bunk beds. they're expected to stay there a while.
InkyGhoast: yeah i know normally talking stream is spoilers allowed but this time it seems like cam is blind and might want to keep it that way
Wicker_Guide: pop music is satan
Dared00: quick gameplay note: if you long-press (i think?) inventory button right after picking up a document, it should auto-redirect you to the new document and you don't have to trawl through menus
Raiz0k: Urgghhh, this internal monologue just set the mood a good 10 points back. You just don't namedrop stuff like that out of the blue.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I love the reason for all the archaic tech: The Oldest House exists with the collective zeitgeist, and newer technologies haven't been absorbed yet, so the House doesn't like 'em
Astiahl: That's her naming it on the spot.
manwichcannon: This game is really [REDACTED]
elah806: don't be suspicious, dooon't beee suspicious
TheMerricat: I love watching someone play this but I know that I'd never finish it myself. I'd be buried under the collectable lore.
ttam809: you can hit y to only see the unread stuff
KevinTheShark: There isnt. There is an AWFUL lot of documentation in this game
Sogheim: oh god they made Supernatural

KevinTheShark: A big black pyramid
GhostValv: hang in there :)

ttam809: hop the railing

Laserbeaks_Fury: I don't think there's falling damage?

elah806: That Lynch influence really shows through in the lighting
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : thanks for confirming that stuff like SCP articles are designed to enthrall a specific personality type. Glad to know I'm not the only one.
Easilycrazyhat: @Laserbeaks_Fury There is
TehAmelie: thinking about them gives them power
Raiz0k: OMG, you killed Polaski!
ameliette: no, not 'person'. 'polanski'. you see the surnames of all bosses etc
Ferisar: you're finished kaiba
RandomTrivia: (NERD!)
Easilycrazyhat: Polanski was one day away from retirement
ieva_art: how do u feel abt the game so far?
manwichcannon: radio tower unlocked
Kaorti: there is better cover now. memetic cover
Raiz0k: Was that actually with an "n"? Because if so, bad reference that.
Creideiki_SE: The light is not red, you don't need cover anymore.
nyperold: You/We, you say?
EvilBadman: Boonfire Lit
Easilycrazyhat: Do not buy this room
Wicker_Guide: "sane"
somecall_metim: how do they know?
Kaorti: must have a portrait in there
Astiahl: The building told them.
manwichcannon: the walls have told them
Laserbeaks_Fury: Well, her picture is on all the walls now
Juliamon: They saw all the portraits change too
innovativemethods: @somecall_metim they looked at a portrait :P
RandomTrivia: The uncanny valley is strong here
TehAmelie: omg Tracer
richard_ermen subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 37 months!
richard_ermen: Yay for Control. That's a good game and one with a few nice things to think about. The DLC is also quite good.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, richard_ermen! (Today's storm count: 63)
Masslost: the outfits fbc wear seem like something from the 80's
Raiz0k: Also, did here height actively change between shots?
Raiz0k: *her
dappercuttlefish: i feel like naming it was maybe not a great plan?
RandomTrivia: Emily "Captain Exposition" Pope
Easilycrazyhat: @dappercuttlefish lrrFINE
nyperold: Trench has a hole in him.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I'm surprised they managed to get Trench out that position, he was pretty dug in Kappa
Raiz0k: Jesse is oddly calm about this, eh.
richard_ermen: Actually...the sentence "There is a hole in their mind" is quite appropriate in this game.
LadyLockwood92 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 10 months!
LadyLockwood92: Woo, 10 months~! I recently played this a little. It's definitely interesting.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, LadyLockwood92! (Today's storm count: 64)
sherwholocked13: Do people recommend this game?
wildpeaks: yes
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: yes
richard_ermen: Aye
Astiahl: Yes
ameliette: jesse isnt exactly new to the weird
UncannyJimjams: @sherwholocked13 this game is excellent
Creideiki_SE: @sherwholocked13 Very much so.
snailkane: yes
ieva_art: yea
TheMerricat: @sherwholocked13 very very recommend.
Raiz0k: @richard_ermen : like "I do not recognize the bodies in the lake"?
richard_ermen: Well...most aren't really ...."people".
SkylerRingtail: For the half hour I've been tuned in, the world seems interesting but the dialogue and exposition is...off to me?
TemporallyAwry: I'm assuming the "options before" were "get to the warhead"
richard_ermen: @Raiz0k That's actually referenced, I really liked that one ^^
LadyLockwood92: I do, the story's interesting, but the combat can be frustrating in places.
Easilycrazyhat: @sherwholocked13 If this looks good to you so far, it only gets better
ggodopaste: You do not recognize the bodies in the water.
Raiz0k: @richard_ermen : oooh, cool!
TehAmelie: hurry up, steam refunds. i just want to swap one recent impulse purchase i didn't even play for this. . .
JqlGirl: something holding them there, yeah
electric_claire: It's a french cuff, Cameron
Laserbeaks_Fury: That whole outfit is definitely a style
BlindProphet32: cufflinks for rolling them up is nifty
KevinTheShark: Thats where she keeps her bulldog clips
electric_claire: But like, short-sleeved
Laserbeaks_Fury: I do love the boots
Wicker_Guide: have discovered "excitable cutie", clearly this organization is legit
ameliette: the sleeves are probably designed to be cuffed at that height
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: Is it a short sleave with buttons on the upper arm?
richard_ermen: Basically, a lot of what "The Bureau" is is ...time-shifted between different areas of the Old House.
ieva_art: clothing designer for game said she spent so much time designing pope's shirt and then they covered it all up w that gadget lmao
PaperDoopliss: @TehAmelie If you wait a couple weeks this game's going to be in the Humble Choice - the whole bundle costs $12 USD or so
richard_ermen: Because the Old House has always been there.
TheMerricat: @TehAmelie did you see it's in March's Humble bundle? you might want to wait.
LadyLockwood92: Okie, I'm gonna finish session 2 of First Law, see you in the VoD
PixelArtDragon: 37 is very oddly specific
richard_ermen: Always assume that "stabilize" means "threw enough bodies at the problem"
Astiahl: 3 and 7 are both numbers of power
BorealMage: I, too, refuse to be [REDACTED]
electric_claire: I always find it weird that video games don't understand how redaction works. Like, you don't redact the document when you file it, you redact it when it's published.
richard_ermen: Amusingly, I've just recently been killed by [REDACTED].
PaperDoopliss: One roll per occupant, to prevent cross-contamination. Ingenious
KevinTheShark: That looks like the roll used primarily for drying hands unfortunately
Easilycrazyhat: "Just leaning"
Kaorti: is 37 prime? it looks prime
ameliette: 37 feet is excatly 444 inches, wonder if thats related too
electric_claire: If you're going to redact something in the filing cabinet you just wouldn't file it
Raiz0k: The Shelter doors have a certain "Fallout vault" ascetic.
RomanGoro: Can we talk about how cool the brutalist architecture in this game is?
Raiz0k: So "Hiss" is tetanus?
snailkane: it's very cool
InkyGhoast: the triangles tried to guide you
manwichcannon: that didnt go well
Easilycrazyhat: oops
Edgarware: oh
KevinTheShark: rip
BorealMage: @RomanGoro It is a very good aesthetic for this game
richard_ermen: @RomanGoro It's also very much on point what with the Board standing just there.
DeM0nFiRe: is she gonna be ok?
Astiahl: Pretty sure anything ending in 7 that isn't 77 is prime by virtue of 7 being indivisible.
Raiz0k: Well, floaty, late-stage tetanus.
Laserbeaks_Fury: I don't feel so good, Mr. Stark
InkyGhoast: welp we just did a murder it's only our fifth today
wildpeaks: so now you don't have to feel bad that you can't cure them
TemporallyAwry: You just caused someone to evaporate ... and seemed surprisingly calm about it.
PixelArtDragon: @Astiahl Like 27?
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: Will Emily remember that person existed?
manwichcannon: 27 is divisible by 9 and 3
Astiahl: Noted.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Hey, at least the established the "bad guys" are unsaveable
snailkane: Ordinary is a good name for a town imo
Creideiki_SE: "Ordinary" is a perfectly ordinary name.
dappercuttlefish: god your home town is called Ordinary that's a recipe for it getting archetype'd
TheMerricat: @TemporallyAwry TBF Pope's seen shit to be the lead Sci for the FBC, if she got upset over that.....
Kaorti: and chat is already descending into numerology. I love it.
Easilycrazyhat: I know it's a game, but being The Director feels like things should no longer be classified XD
Astiahl: We're watching modern occult fantasy, numerology is inevitable as a topic lol
richard_ermen: Can I just say this? I love the janitor and that game part. You'll see =)
TheMerricat: @Easilycrazyhat yes and no, remember you are the Director but the Board run shit.
richard_ermen: Oh gods, the Board...
TemporallyAwry: @TheMerricat fair enough, but still. "the rapid redefinition of normal" is happening shockingly fast PrideLaugh
KevinTheShark: @Easilycrazyhat Being the Director may simply only mean its literal meaning of only existing to give Direction to the compan
innovativemethods: her shirt's lines are insane.
elah806: So then are the HRAs basically hedron crabs
NightWingMistHawk: For those who don't know, a Bakelite Telephone is apparently a rotary phone
RandomTrivia: LUL I absolutely love the idea of an old unremarkable piece of technology being important/powerful by being iconic
TheMerricat: Emily has Elf ears.
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, I get it, but still
Raiz0k: Also, Pope's model is directly inspired by Tilda Swindon, right?
manwichcannon: @Easilycrazyhat you are allowed to access whatever you want, but there is the matter of finding it in this place
Alienfirst: so so hype to see this game get played
richard_ermen: Control is basically an "Unknown Armies" game in other terms.
KevinTheShark: You dont need to lead. Just to find a direction
Astiahl: Bakelite is a type of plastic that was in heavy use during the time of rotary phones, more specifically.
Raiz0k: This part sounds like an episodic game.
Mushbie: "nah that ain't me. I'm the boss"
asthanius: I love how Remedy so obviously wants to make a bunch of tv mini-series
richard_ermen: Ahh....the phone.
snailkane: I thought Emily had a real actor who they used as her model just like the other characters, right?
richard_ermen: @asthanius Wait till we get to their childrens show.
ieva_art: god the atmosphere in this game is top notch
Raiz0k: @asthanius : hah, different words, same vibe.
KevinTheShark: Hey, the Hotline! :D
Kaorti: I know people with eyes like that. They're nice.
richard_ermen: Control has THE MOST FUCKED UP childrens show I've seen so far.
spethycakes: Bakelite was also commonly used for pins, bracelets, and other jewelry. It can sell for fairly significant sums now.
TheMerricat: Bakelite was the first plastic we were able to make from synthetic compounds, we went crazy over it for a while.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Made me think of Magneto's cell
s0lesurviv0r: the characters are actually modeled after the actors
snailkane: Oh yes Atlas is great
wildpeaks: reminds me of the Magneto cell in Xmen 2
manwichcannon: @snailkane most of these charachrters have really good facecap
Kaorti: only stupid mistakes
Decaped: Virtual insanity too.
asthanius: @richard_ermen you and I both know that’s a YouTube series like Don’t Hug Me. The lower the budget, the better
ieva_art: yeah they have some segments that are straight up live action for jesse i believe?
niccus: <message deleted>https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/58d28073e6f2e10bb3d14b50/1490706417951-F7I8OKEXJOHXYIMPO5XL/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48kJuI8p5FQJ1Eq-llLbNfaL4UqsxRUqqbr1mOJYKfIPR7LoDQ9mXPOjoJoqy81S2I8N_N4V1vUb5AoIIIbLZhVYxCRW4BPu10St3TBAUQYVKcVwiMXy0_LgceVXG1CKh67v8u1s0pBIJf9445W-KB9EEl1zKMAtdN8yEjqLo53gl0/batl_02.jpg?format=1500w
BorealMage: @richard_ermen it's fiiiiiine, nothing wrong with it at all...
niccus: nope that's too big
nyperold: I wanna be where the people are / I wanna see, wanna see them floating...
Laserbeaks_Fury: You can talk to Pope
ameliette: i wouldnt be surprised if the fucked up kids show was inspired by morso
richard_ermen: HahaSweat
Juliamon: Yeah, shrink that one
RandomTrivia: lil' steppy
PixelArtDragon: Ooh, that's some good IK right there
Easilycrazyhat: She's also still holding the gun.
MyClosePersonalFriendJohn: Do you prefer McDonald's or Burger King? Seems like a stupid question... in tis situation. :)
asthanius: IK is very good
RandomTrivia: Oh I absolutely adore this game. They took the time to match the footsteps to each step
ieva_art: tap tap tap
TehAmelie: handy tip that i love, any number is divisible by three that if you add its digits together they're divisible by three. see: 12, 1+2=3
Juliamon: Textured ramps, yes
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah :(
richard_ermen: Gun is key.
RandomTrivia: So rarely do developers actually bother to match the animation to the steps
wildpeaks: spilling all our secrets :D
elah806: Except for Minecraft stairs
KevinTheShark: I think the eye thing may be to distingeuish between Jesse being tired and dubious and Emily pope being fresh and eager
SquareDotCube: Inverse Kinematics.
Kaorti: yep, but execution of the ramp & picture is important
TehAmelie: as long as we're on numerology
manwichcannon: dynamic tripping yes
BorealMage: That's a great subtlety
innovativemethods: oh, Valheim has them as individual height levels, and it's *clunky*
Decaped: I feel like that's why the bodies disappear. They couldn't get the physics right on corpses.
raaabr: The asethetic of this game is pretty neat
Laserbeaks_Fury: The "animation in LA Noir we cool, never saw another game try that
Decaped: ridiculous corpse physics being a mainstay of bad animation.
richard_ermen: I only remember the really badly telegraphed faces from LA Noir#
richard_ermen: And the fugly main story.
Orgmastron: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That's not how you wear that.
draxov: It was interesting in LA Noire how they basically played videos on peoples faces to make them look so.....realistic....?
wildpeaks: given the level of destruction we can do, it would be weird if bodies remained intact, and blood everywhere would detract from the tasteful aesthetic
manwichcannon: older games always tried much harder with physics simulation
devil_dan: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: a very glossy jpeg of a goat
Foxmar320: Always more files
raaabr: I love the signs all around in this game
Decaped: I'm not sure those corpses have blood in them currently.
Kaorti: what's the 5th wall?
ieva_art: the physics in this game are rly great tho
Decaped: those ones do.
richard_ermen: Its interesting in how you can collect so much yet so little when I compare this to having finished AC Valhalla recently.
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie : there's a joke from over here. "What are the world's three greatest philosophers? Heraclitus of Ephesus, Thales of Miletus, and Seat of Bakelitus".
Easilycrazyhat: Red hallway is R E D
mostly_minerals: firefighters?
sherwholocked13: Is the shoting in this hard?
EvilBadman: Goofy corpse physics and disappearing bodies help us disconnect from the violence we're causing.
Astiahl: Replace Your Blood With Bees
TheMerricat: The fifth wall is the roof
s0lesurviv0r: Krieg from Borderlands going nuts on the PA system
Raiz0k: That's very much a vault suit.
BorealMage: @Kaorti A TV character talks to you, but in a different time
wildpeaks: face-melting hot soup
KevinTheShark: Nope
Laserbeaks_Fury: Spaghetti
Neddy471: Is this the first session?
BrowneePoints: Death
InkyGhoast: it was pizza day
manwichcannon: I found a glossy jpeg of an RTX 3070 on ebay
richard_ermen: Basically "Go here later"-type of corridor.
Foxmar320: Why not both
asthanius: Director style
Laserbeaks_Fury: This is a Metroidvania type of game, right?
talosparoxi: if you hold in the touchpad after picking up a collectable it automatically opens that collectable in the menu
Stormthius: Follow your heart
CrazyZonie: Clean hits, Navy seal style
raaabr: Ehh, even left handed people sometimes fire with their right hand
KevinTheShark: I like how she basically instantly knows how to use these things
Easilycrazyhat: I also love the ammo system. very clean.
richard_ermen: If this is the style of play Cam adopts, then it's be fun to see him during some of the later encounters xD
talosparoxi: rocket
wildpeaks: physics happened
snailkane: you may have exploded it yourself with the punch
RandomTrivia: You punched that guy so hard the thing behind you exploded
rosesmcgee: you can change the over the shoulder view from right to left, sometimes helps with cover
s0lesurviv0r: 3060 comes out in march, heard it repels cryptominers
CrazyZonie: The Environment is distructable.
devil_dan: Red means explosive. And the hiss guy shot it a couple times.
dougma: The single handed firing bothers me, and I don't know why
Laserbeaks_Fury: I do miss eating trash hotdogs
Gizmoloid: I think the explody thing got set of by the shooter before you punched him
richard_ermen: Is Cam playing with a controller?
InkyGhoast: i like the exploration aspect of this game but i do wish it had a dead space tell me where to go line
asthanius: Square toilet
dougma: Something about the arm animation is too noodley
Creideiki_SE: Cam: crafting materials.
Spluuga: Fun fact, Finns consume the most coffee per person in the world..
manwichcannon: he was holding one earlier
Foxmar320: That has to be a damp file
EvilBadman: Yes, an Xbox Controller IIRC
wildpeaks: this place looks both alien and lived in
Decaped: i am disturbed by bathrooms that lock on the outside.
TemporallyAwry: The intercom rant is great atmosphere, but it's really doing a number on my brain.
InkyGhoast: i want to pok in all the corners AND know exactly where i need to go
Easilycrazyhat: I will say I find some of the exploration "rewards" kind of lackluster. It's pretty much all generic materials you get everywhere else.
richard_ermen: Control is like Lovecraft. Only show the things necessary for the story.
Raiz0k: Being only mildly sarcastic, it's interesting they've managed to translate an originally mostly-American creation from a collaborative writing medium to a video game medium *with even more guns*.
innovativemethods: @dougma they didn't mocap gun shooting, they had them pretend, so it's... not quite right.
Easilycrazyhat: Oh look, mold
RandomTrivia: Hmmm, don't want any of that
Kaorti: mold in here
wildpeaks: this doesn't spark joy
BrowneePoints: I hope jesse can raise the bar and pass mustard. *i'll see myself out*
Foxmar320: AY NO TO MOLD
richard_ermen: Also the lack of food is actually a thing of the story.
TraceBullet: phazon shelter
Foxmar320: opps caps
DeM0nFiRe: Must be the safe house for fish
manwichcannon: relatively normal
Easilycrazyhat: Do Not Eat the Tasty Mold
iris_of_ether: lrrFINE
Foxmar320: Say no to mold even :P
KevinTheShark: Thats a no-no zone
Rhynerd: Gonna need a lot of vinegar in that room.
Kaorti: bravo
Astiahl: Technically A Foodstuff
InkyGhoast: ok we don't go to ravenholme
Ferisar: this gamer looks up
KevinTheShark: *dab*
Sogheim: I'm sure once you have "anti brain explodey" powers, it'll be fine
elah806: Malfunctioning atmospheric processor in there
Angnor33: Perfectly normal undersea panic room.
TehAmelie: the rock will give no shelter, the shelter room will try to blow you up
AlterForm: gamer literacy, finding all the treasure nooks!
Laserbeaks_Fury: The manteling in this game is very good
richard_ermen: A lot of what Control does with its environment is about how the Environs control perspective and reality.
BorealMage: Hey, who hissed on my dinner?
GhostValv: D:
Officinalis: The hiss are members of the clean plate club.
Angnor33: And then it ate the chow.
Kaorti: I like the soundproofing on the barricades
manwichcannon: It concerns me that a meatloaf could become an object of power
manwichcannon: what would it do?
Raiz0k: What about a fruitcake?
richard_ermen: You are actually supposed to go down the other corridor, the red doesnt showcase that well, because the hiss corridor is training the player to avoid red.
Alahmnat subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 14 months, currently on a 2 month streak!
Alahmnat: hooray, Control time!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Alahmnat! (Today's storm count: 65)
ieva_art: maintenance outfit?
BrowneePoints: @manwichcannon the person or the food
wildpeaks: poor janitor will have a lot of work to clean this place
CrazyZonie: Firefighter?
richard_ermen: But its not always meant in the same way.
raaabr: Looks like some kind of emergency fire fighter thing?
Angnor33: All properly cooked meatloafs are objects of power.
TehAmelie: it would be worse if Meat Loaf could become an object of power
Easilycrazyhat: Multi-dimensional building with Sound Monster: Fine -- Stairs: We're fucked
manwichcannon: @BrowneePoints A meatloaf not the guy
Kaorti: combo protective coverall and military fatigues
nyperold: If you take the stairs, put them back when you're done.
Raiz0k: @richard_ermen : oh, that's a nice UX screw-up then.
DarkAbyssKeeper: "in the building"
Foxmar320: This building has it all and more
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie He would do anything for love, but he won't do that
KevinTheShark: Frankly, there's a LOT in the building. In fact there's a lot more BUILDING than should be in this building
TheMerricat: Meat Loaf isn't an object of power?
dappercuttlefish: the Meatloaf might be something to do with nostalgia? the Fruitcake is absolutely poison
richard_ermen: Ahh, but Cam figured it out.
empyreon: please, any other type of loaf @TehAmelie
richard_ermen: Nice.
ttam809: Oh man LOVE dead letters
raaabr: This game has a really rad aesthetic, I love it
innovativemethods: oh no. letter ghosts.
ttam809: all this stuff's so wacky
codatski: Just got here! I did NOT understand/like this game at first, but then came to love it very quickly
Easilycrazyhat: Dead letters is a great concept
ieva_art: oh i love the letters
Raiz0k: So, dark red vs "glowing red".
talosparoxi: dead letters is so good
niccus: like the thorn, or phi
Easilycrazyhat: The skitter-skatter of breaking the game.
talosparoxi: oh cam
Foxmar320: I never got out of bounds
richard_ermen: Same.
ieva_art: now i just wanna see the speedrun strats for this game
Creideiki_SE: For fun with geometry and physics, watch speedruns of this game.
richard_ermen: You later on get to craft.
BrindleBoar: they're crafting materials
Easilycrazyhat: I think you'll find out here
talosparoxi: they're craftables
Easilycrazyhat: after clearing this point
snailkane: I can't wait for Cam to stumble upon Threshold Kids
richard_ermen: Shielded enemies. Bane of player life.
manwichcannon: you can make piles of stuff and jump on it later but it is really finnicky
Foxmar320: He has a solar shield, better switch to my solar weapon
Easilycrazyhat: @snailkane I legit couldn't watch those. They were...something
Raiz0k: That shield regens?!
richard_ermen: @Raiz0k Yup
Easilycrazyhat: health doesn't regen, fyi
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah, but I think a melee withh knock it down
better_seasons: you can upgrade at any of the control points. It unlocks once you hit the first control point.
Raiz0k: Poor Cam.
Alahmnat: lol Foxmar
Easilycrazyhat: oh yeah, melee is the answer to shields at first
richard_ermen: Early on the game is suprisingly unforgiving in Combat, which becomes weird in how much it switches in its sceond half.
snailkane: @Easilycrazyhat They reminded me of the creepy puppet tv shows they used to make for children in the 80s and 90s Finland
RandomTrivia: Welp
Foxmar320: Yeah very agro
talosparoxi: wall hacks
Raiz0k: No no, they're not, they're just throwing a Hissy Fit.
TehAmelie: wait control points? isn't that like if Mario games had Mario points?
Foxmar320: They will hunt you down
Easilycrazyhat: Right there, probably
Officinalis: Earlygame can be rough.
ContingentCat: uhhh
innovativemethods: modern game. autocheckpoints.
EvilBadman: Control points are bonfires
ameliette: snailkane morso? i thought of morso when i saw treshold kids as well
Dared00: saving system in this game is miserable
manwichcannon: i wish this game had an option for a very slight passive health regen
richard_ermen: I once lost two hours of progress because I forgot to save. Maaaan.
Easilycrazyhat: Keeping up health can be pretty tricky
KevinTheShark: The game is challenging, but fair.
talosparoxi: you can just turn on invincibility in the menu though, that's what I did
Laserbeaks_Fury: You won't have to re-collect any collectibles
Foxmar320: I did get an upgrade late game that let me heal a little on dashing. Helped a lot.
snailkane: @ameliette oh god morso, I had completely forgotten about that one! thank you! i was thinking more like tohelo ja torvelo and urpo ja turpo
manwichcannon: that would feel cheap for me
wildpeaks: "the dark souls of new weird"
Officinalis: They don't respawn, but will show up in 'danger areas'.
TehAmelie: i heard about "badass mode" but i didn't think the game just gave you godmode
richard_ermen: @Foxmar320 I just got "Health from killing", that basically made me invincible later on HahaSweat
Easilycrazyhat: That worked\
GhostValv: one is the things I got from watching NK Jemison play is that bosses do seem weirdly imbalanced sometimes
DarkAbyssKeeper: They don't respawn but they can different spawn.
RandomTrivia: What was that if not cheesing?
Foxmar320: richard_ermen thats also very strong
ZethRuss: !listen
LRRbot: Always listen to chat, Never listen to chat.
innovativemethods: @randomtrivia punching and then shooting.
TehAmelie: just like in Halo eh
talosparoxi: @TehAmelie yeah you can fully customise the difficulty and there's literally a button that just makes you immortal
Easilycrazyhat: They don't just stand there getting shot
RandomTrivia: The pathfinding seems very good
richard_ermen: Yeah, I really liked that. Reminded me of FEAR.
Hangedman: They aim quite well unless you sprint
DarkAbyssKeeper: I have invested nothing in melee, because throw.
TehAmelie: well, Halo made you use a fully charged plasma pistol and then regular pistol
KevinTheShark: There's a good variety by the end of the day
Astiahl: The power of YEET compels you!
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, melee ended up being my dump stat in this game.
Alahmnat: this game is just so pretty
Kaorti: you're really fragile right now
Laserbeaks_Fury: I found HEadshots do deal more damage, but the game encourages you to just run and gun
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie Nah, Melee into melee cancel shotgun was an instakill
UncannyJimjams: it's a sweet flavor win when they try to use the terrain, they are still trained government agents with guns
talosparoxi: @DarkAbyssKeeper that feeling when you can finally regen energy while holding three objects to throw
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie the good old "B X RT" combo
KevinTheShark: GEt on the POINT
KevinTheShark: Kappa
wildpeaks: !point
LRRbot: If you came here hoping for there to be a point to this, I have bad news for you.
Raiz0k: So, more like Doom 2016 of New Weird?
Foxmar320: Oh be sure to watch any TVs you find
BrowneePoints: I can hear it in my dreams Kevin
GhostValv: nice
Easilycrazyhat: @Alahmnat The textures aren't even particularly amazing, but they nailed the lighting direction. It's really good.
talosparoxi: !advice
grammypokey: Hey Cameron! My son is a huge fan of yours
devil_dan: Heal the concrete tumors.
Kaorti: it does, doesn't it
richard_ermen: Ahh, good ol Brutalist Old House architecture.
ieva_art: is the siattle public library brutalist
raaabr: I like that cleansing the point doesn't actually make the place completely un-eldritch in design
Easilycrazyhat: Check that control point? I think there's more stuff you can do.
BorealMage: It could very well be the Seattle public library with the way this building operates.
innovativemethods: it's super stone
richard_ermen: Cam also hates the environment?
Sarah_Serinde: Oh I remember you telling me about that Cameron, I should probably visit sometime
Kaorti: I recommend the top floor reading area.
RandomTrivia: Who needs key when we have gun?
Kaorti: Also the Red Hallway.
kumatsu: I think Kathleen posted a vlog about going there to do some writing during downtime in Seattle?
Easilycrazyhat: Oh, not yet
TheMerricat: I'm the DIRECTOR my clearance is my SERVICE GUN!
ggodopaste: It's a big black glass shape that shouldn't exist
BrowneePoints: My town's old library was a Carnegie building. Very pretty limestone
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this on PC or console?
TehAmelie: McMansionhell has a vast ongoing series of articles talking about what brutalism is, though i think she's still on what it's not
iris_of_ether: I *live* in the Seattle area, and I should go sometime benginLol
Astiahl: @Laserbeaks_Fury Yes
DarkAbyssKeeper: Ctrl Z the pixel filter.
richard_ermen: @TheMerricat More true than anything else in CONTROL.
manwichcannon: @Laserbeaks_Fury both
RatekStormcrow: Fast travel means you need to backtrack ?
ieva_art: i live in a brutalist building so
Raiz0k: Honestly, I'm surprised at how many of brutalist and brutalist-inspired architecture are there in NA.
talosparoxi: @Laserbeaks_Fury it's available on both
Easilycrazyhat: Fancy libraries are great
Sarah_Serinde: Amazing
Foxmar320: I believe there is a TV you can check downstairs in a side room that has a "fun" TV show on it
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, what is Cameron playing it on
Laserbeaks_Fury: Sorry
Easilycrazyhat: Movies!
manwichcannon: i think pc with a controller
Kaorti: not surprised Cam has Librarian fans.
wildpeaks: disk \o/
Officinalis: <3 Casper
richard_ermen: @RatekStormcrow The game later on uses an enemy attack model where Hiss attack sektors and you need to fast travel to defeat them.
Raiz0k: Oh, an 8''!
Easilycrazyhat: Darling is a great character
talosparoxi: "launch" codes
JqlGirl: 8okb!
richard_ermen: Poor Darling.
Foxmar320: Darling is one of the best characters in the game
ieva_art: oh i think i found a stack of these among my dad's things recently
RandomTrivia: Huh, it's a disk that "launches" things
Neljandik: Seems like LRR viewers are a bunch of nerds. HAHAHAHA.... wait
Gizmoloid: @Laserbeaks_Fury PC with xbone controller, I believe
manwichcannon: he has a good actor
wildpeaks: chyrCoffee
Laserbeaks_Fury: The Launch Codes Sick: Literally launches thing
GhostValv: :O
Easilycrazyhat: he's so proud of his videos XD
Alahmnat: I love how much this game is basically just "what if Warehouse 13 and the SCP foundation had a concrete-covered baby"
Laserbeaks_Fury: *Disk
Raiz0k: Yup!
KevinTheShark: He looks like he's having such fun
elah806: Speaking as an active master's student in library school I can say I definitely see why information professionals like librarians and museum workers might gravitate to LRR
RaklarLS: man, i wish i could finish this game; it keeps crashing at random points, and it's so frustrating
Raiz0k: It certainly was!
codatski: The lead scientist is played so well
RandomTrivia: Especially to streams like Talking Sim
manwichcannon: it isnt used for that anymore so no big
Foxmar320: Yeah I love all of them
wildpeaks: wonderfully careless is an accurate description of Darling
Raiz0k: That reminds me of the SCP that's tomatoes that are overly critical of bad comedy.
Easilycrazyhat: The b-roll footage is possibly my favorite video, barring a late game one I don't want to spoil.
talosparoxi: you definetly did
Foxmar320: Yep there is a TV in this office I think
Officinalis: Is it TV time?
Officinalis: It is!
Dared00: here we goooooo
Foxmar320: Yessssssssss!!!
UncannyJimjams: fun fact, Darling's actor is Alan Wake's VA
wildpeaks: Threshold Kids \o/

Ferisar: oh no
Easilycrazyhat: Oh, here they are
snailkane: yes!
manwichcannon: ooh this is a treat
Astiahl: yaaass

BorealMage: rbeeGross

DigitalSeahorse: lrrCAMERON lucidLove
UncannyJimjams: there's more episodes later
Ellipseis: only available on vhs of course!
SurfDownstage: lrrFINE_TK
ameliette: dvds too advanced, vhs is all you get
Easilycrazyhat: I legit couldn't watch those videos. Too...off
innovativemethods: oh! that's who I saw play control! thanks!
BrowneePoints: "My mom is missing in actions"
Foxmar320: Super unsettling
RandomTrivia: Soooo... a childrens' show?
Laserbeaks_Fury: But I repeat myself
Alahmnat: "how unsettling?" "yes."
Raiz0k: Also, wasn't the final shot with the player silhouette just great?
Kaorti: the most unsettling
InkyGhoast: i was watching a streamer play earlier and she approached a tv before going "oh nope that's the creepy puppets!"
Mysticman89: LRR should do a creepy kids show
UncannyJimjams: handmade puppet levels of unsettling
TheMerricat: I love that Remedy's games almost always have some sorta creepy tv show embeded in them.
snailkane: I'm pretty sure it's a reference to Finnish children tv shows from the 80s and 90s that included crude and creepy puppets
Officinalis: @xantos69 That's spoilers to explain iirc
RaklarLS: soviet union levels of unsettling children's shows
richard_ermen: Its fascinating in looking at if afterwards, as to how the "City" is presented as something bad...because once you leave te Old House, you're not actually coming back. Ever.
couldntpickausername: "my time has come" *gets out surprisingly large supply of eyeless puppets*
KevinTheShark: An unsettling childrens show? Like the Geleteens? (*cough* Cori)
Masslost: @xantos69 if you google it theres so information about them and its pretty messed up why they were created
Ellipseis: *Kris straub vibe intensifies*
Fracaswell: those were written by Anna Megill
Astiahl: The physical propwork for this *3d rendered game* is delightful and amazing.
CrazyZonie: I need to win the lottery, JUST SO I CAN PAY CAM TO MAKE AN UNSETTLING CHILDREN"S SHOW
DigitalSeahorse: dat old TV set VCR combo
wildpeaks: Anna's great :)
elah806: The Littlest Stream House I think qualifies as on the creepy kid's shpw continuum
Easilycrazyhat: yeah, the show was made for a purpose, but it's part of Plot
RandomTrivia: I'm sure there is pseudo-infinite online discourse about that show
BrowneePoints: @snailkane it's a reference to Davey and Goliath and Howdy Doody
snailkane: ah, thanks
innovativemethods: oh god those heating vents in the floor.
xantos69: cheer50 Cam you literally work at a video production house. LRR can (and has) made "children's shows" before. I'll direct you to Paul doing the playhouse videos.
Foxmar320: There is so much reading material in this game.
Raiz0k: @snailkane : there's also a couple of SCPs that reference that aesthetic. In general, it wasn't only Finnish - it was spread all over the Soviet Bloc.
raaabr: Has Cameron read the posters for the mold and the like?
codatski: The notes actually are dope in this game
Easilycrazyhat: @raaabr a few here and there
wildpeaks: how has this been two hours already :D

Stay tuned. ‡
Alahmnat: @manwichcannon "jolly gleaming magnet out you don't say" feels like an oddly appropriate URL slug for that clip
snailkane: @Raiz0k You're correct on that one. I was working on the assumption that since the devs are Finnish they probably were inspired by the shows they used watch 20-30 years ago
Easilycrazyhat: oh, good SWL news ^.^
Easilycrazyhat: *SWS
devil_dan: Let's join the Threshold Kids!
ieva_art: i watched some soviet puppet shows but none were nightmare quality like this one....
manwichcannon: @Alahmnat That is ridiculous in the best possible way
Raiz0k: @snailkane: oh, I wasn't aware they were Finnish, in that case, probably even more so (in terms of specific shows). But also, you're probably familiar with Pat & Mat or even maybe Floppy Bear etc.
TehAmelie: so you like narratives that keep you lost and scared by not really telling you what's going on but flood you with strange and beautiful imagery? have you heard Helplessly Hoping? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyquqw6GeXk
SkylerRingtail: The game sort of gives me Meow Wolf's House of Eternal Return vibes
devil_dan: @Raiz0k Or Pa & Pi.
TehAmelie: staggeringly good choice for the biologist's theme song in Annihilation i thought
wildpeaks: welcome back, director
snailkane: @Raiz0k I mean, @ameliette brought up Morso earlier. It was pure nightmare fuel: https://muropaketti.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ylepressi41-20171012.jpg
Raiz0k: @devil_dan : although, in terms of fictional Finnish characters of that time period, nothing probably gets you as much as The Groke.
TehAmelie: oh hi again
Dared00: Finnish?
Raiz0k: Yeah, par for the course @snailkane :D.
Neljandik: Finnish dev
Easilycrazyhat: Finnish, I believe
wildpeaks: finish developer, in Malmo
somecall_metim: @Raiz0k groke sounds like something that lives under the bed
Astiahl: Finnish.
Foxmar320: Finnish
spethycakes: The list of names in the credits was largely Finnish-appearing
NightWingMistHawk: Finnish
asthanius: Not at all
Easilycrazyhat: They made John Wake, too
RomanGoro: Alan Wake
Easilycrazyhat: >.> Yes...
Spluuga: gunlet yes
2Flower: They also made demos in the early nineties as Future Crew.
somecall_metim: and max payne
Neljandik: MalmΓΆ is Swedusg @wildpeaks
JqlGirl: and it's pronounced Es-poh
Kaorti: they seem aware of the U.S. alright :P
somecall_metim: the story lead in this was max payne
Easilycrazyhat: YES
Neljandik: Swedish*
BrowneePoints: Mhmm. It's also commentary on the feudal system
codatski: Well.. it turns out that it is a lot more complicated than that. But you gotta read the lores lol
RomanGoro: And [SPOILERS] there's a lot of references to Alan Wake in the game, and then a whole DLC that ties both games
Easilycrazyhat: Yeet times ho
wildpeaks: ah my bad, must have confused
talosparoxi: lol crazy hat, "it's me John Q. Wake here"
KevinTheShark: Yeah, these are the guys that made Alan Wake. He becomes relevant later!
Raiz0k: "Coming from the outside" is a nice way to put it :).
djalternative: Male Room
Easilycrazyhat: @talosparoxi XD I think my brain was stuck on John Wick for some reason
talosparoxi: you wanna go to the boiler room
Raiz0k: MalmΓΆ Room?
TheWooglie: emergency supplies
RandomNetGhost: Watching this and hearing Trench makes me want to play through all of Max Payne again.
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, go to that room the man just got domed to death from
RandomTrivia: Emergency supplies presumably
niccus: wall to wall fiber bars
Kaorti: fibers bars
talosparoxi: probably MREs
Astiahl: The best rewards are codex entries!
snailkane: Fibers are good for you
BorealMage: Oh, there's [REDACTED] in the emergency supply storage.
Makrosian_Tae: Oh shit, you're playing Control! I'm SO HERE for this!
RandomTrivia: @BorealMage Well played
Raiz0k: Are "low objects" also Of Power?
KevinTheShark: Object get angry at you. Cuddle them to make them feel better
Makrosian_Tae: ^
devil_dan: If you invest into this OOP you'll be OP.
talosparoxi: @KevinTheShark don't try getting fresh with the anchor
nyperold: We need some Objects of Wisdom, and possibly Courage.
RandomTrivia: Who is this "Clarence" and why won't he let us through any of these doors? lrrBEEJ
ameliette: @KevinTheShark you would get along well with a certain NPC
somecall_metim: The O R B is angy
ttam809: Flopper disk
Makrosian_Tae: Ah, so Cori has played before,
Raiz0k: Yeah, the light in the staircase was different, "safe".
Makrosian_Tae: ?
Kaorti: the D I S C
ttam809: OH
wildpeaks: get ye disk
ttam809: We get the Board now!
talosparoxi: @ameliette you speak of course of the best character in the game
ttam809: THE B O A R D
wildpeaks: they 3d-printed the save icon
CrazyZonie: @RandomTrivia I don't know. Did you ask Roger, Roger?
raaabr: I love the way the board talks
RandomTrivia: @CrazyZonie I did ask Roger, Over
ttam809: I love the way the board double talks
josh___something: Floppy Disk/Nuke
Dog_of_Myth: Now the fun truly begins...
Raiz0k: Honestly, I'm about most of the LRR core crew's age, and never in my life have I seen an 8'' floppy.
shurtal: god i love this game
Raiz0k: 5.25'', sure.
wildpeaks: unleash mayhem
KevinTheShark: Nice
wildpeaks: welcome to physics
josh___something: The YEET power speedrunners use
Easilycrazyhat: I get massive Psy-Ops vibes from the telekinesis mechanics in this game and I love it.
ComplexedOne: this is such a good lame. just
Kaorti: we threw a coffee cup once :P
RandomTrivia: I do enjoy that it's named "floppy disk/nuke", like: "Thing it actually is/What it conceptually represents"
Officinalis: Cube/thingamajig
devil_dan: Now you broke it.
wildpeaks: glod split
Astiahl: I love how the telekineticized objects just have like, the screams of the damned radiate from them while you hold them
TheWooglie: are you OK?
xantos69: Don't go into oblivion.
Kaorti: it's a Very long way down
Officinalis: The abyss calls to you Cam.
Kaorti: nigh infinite
CrazyZonie: @RandomTrivia I never jest. And don't call me Shirley.
RandomTrivia: And I thought watching JAMES almost fall off things was stressful enough
EvilBadman: It's all your favorite parts of Destiny jumping puzzles, but in 3rd person!
AlterForm: oh no, just got back from stepping away, what got cam spooked?
The_Voices: cam, do you need a new seat coushion?
wildpeaks: yeet
Officinalis: Ability/Gift/Burden
KevinTheShark: Depends if the space has air to cause resistance
Raiz0k: Well, gravity?
snailkane: <ability/gift/burden> is great
JqlGirl: terminal velocity
TehAmelie: relative to what? :p
TheWooglie: can you fall in space though?
shurtal: Constant Thrust is my...."acting" name
BrowneePoints: I see we have gained the "Yeetus Deletus" spell
Kaorti: right through the pillar
KevinTheShark: The telekinesis is pretty good for auto aim
TehAmelie: free falling is almost all that objects in space do
Makrosian_Tae: I love the *SCRUNCH* noise they make when you smush them with telekinesis
LordZarano: You would reach terminal velocity and then you would become terminated
wildpeaks: delicious blue
Ellipseis: the mental yeeting in this game is so good
talosparoxi: cam you also don't need to aim at things to use telekinesis, you can just use ground chunks
Easilycrazyhat: Secret base XD
Raiz0k: Yeah, that was interesting.
Kaorti: it'll buff out
KevinTheShark: Yeet often. It's a teeny bit OP
Makrosian_Tae: My biggest complaint about this game is, and will always be, the damage values from the enemy. It really feels like you are constantly taking 90% of your heath in damage from a single hit
talosparoxi: #meduringeverybossfight
raulghoulia: your face? that's where your thoughts come from
ameliette: heh. "mute the hiss". and calling astral plnae secret base, so casual
talosparoxi: @Makrosian_Tae you can adjust the damage values in the menu
Easilycrazyhat: It's nice that you can just rip parts of the wall out. you don't always need physics objects
RandomTrivia: We *HAVE* gun, but now we *AM* gun
ameliette: @KevinTheShark Yeet early yeet often?
Raiz0k: Also, the tele-k just goes through their shields, right?
josh___something: From watching the speedruns, isn't launch stupidly good when upgreaded??
Kaorti: gun is symbol, D I S C is power
Makrosian_Tae: @talosparoxi wait, is that separate from difficulty?
Raiz0k: Ahyup, it does.
ArcOfTheConclave: gun or yeet? gun or yeet? yeet.
TehAmelie: "wait, are we just the Bureau's gun?" "always has been"
LordZarano: This game really reminds me of Second Sight on the Gamecube
CrazyZonie: Sometimes you just gotta shoot someone. And other times you just gotta drop a chunk of the wall on someone
Easilycrazyhat: @Raiz0k It's the scissors to their paper
BrowneePoints: Yeetus Deletus
raulghoulia: bye!
Alahmnat: away
KevinTheShark: @ameliette *salutes* all the yeet
josh___something: Delet this
Astiahl: Objects deal constant damage regardless of mass, actually. Which implies some fun things.
Alahmnat: he went away
talosparoxi: there is no "difficuly" per say. but I am talking about assist mode yes
Raiz0k: Waiting for the Rock then ;p.
BrowneePoints: Red Misted
InkyGhoast: that man is now dust
RaemonDamon: "Where'd he go!?" "Away."

Easilycrazyhat: Grabbing rockets is a pwoer up I believe
ArcOfTheConclave: what is the hiss?
codatski: You cannot get grenades yet, please do not die trying to do that lol
BrowneePoints: I love how very into this Cam seems
Easilycrazyhat: It's VERY fun when you can do that, though
SuperBloodWolfMoon: I think my favorite trope of games like this is, "We're researching this anomalous thing, which we're also using to power our research facilty," which always leads to disaster.
RandomTrivia: ^^
talosparoxi: if you hit triangle it drops the object
RandomTrivia: It's like, what did you expect to happen? LUL
devil_dan: There is only one way to find out if you can catch rockets flying at your face and that's why most people don't try.
DeM0nFiRe: He's having a nice sit down
manwichcannon: its ok cam the house tidies itself
mycosect: he looks fresh from heat death
Makrosian_Tae: You can drop an item if you press the change gun button
Zappeljakob: I find it funny that the director has no Clearance level on it's own and needs to "borrow" it from others
Mysticman89: fast travel? is this secretly an open world game?
Easilycrazyhat: No reason...
wildpeaks: boss time
Alahmnat: if there's one complaint I have about the flow of this game, it's giving you a "throw stuff" power right before giving you a boss that's effectively immune to having stuff thrown at him.
Astiahl: It's secretly a soulslike, actually, lol.
Raiz0k: @SuperBloodWolfMoon : it's essentially a more elaborate Icarus, if you think about it.
Officinalis: Tommasi is a jerk.
manwichcannon: he cant dodge bullets
talosparoxi: but can he dodge bullet?
manwichcannon: precognition
TehAmelie: "dodge this"

Astiahl: Which means ity's also secret a metroidvania RPG.
ruscobrog: I killed myself a lot in this fight because I kept throwing explosives into objects next to me.
Astiahl: Nested secret genres.
talosparoxi: I like how the adds in this game also work as health pickups
Raiz0k: The boss, probably?
Easilycrazyhat: You pick that up
Officinalis: That's an upgrade
Kaorti: they can yeet too
talosparoxi: rocketo
manwichcannon: ah yes it is a soulsvania just like hollow knight
gravity_pike: i died so many times here, and my load time was like a solid 1:30. just about gave up here, tbh.
Alahmnat: yeah, the boss throws stuff at you too
Easilycrazyhat: Probably his yeet rocks. They hurt.
Ellipseis: that flying dude is counter-yeeting
TehAmelie: oh dear, we're down to 50% health
talosparoxi: a rocket out of nowhere basically kills you every time
legiondivided: those big rocks tommasi is throwin?
Crokoking: the boss also throws chunks of environment. they hurt
snowewolf: it was the spike you graped - he chucked it 1st
Easilycrazyhat: You pick that up XD
rosesmcgee: Could someone please tell him that Down on the D pad lets him switch sides on the camera?
Easilycrazyhat: Not shoot
mycosect: pop
raaabr: Shot in the back
2Flower: I do wish this game had difficulty settings. Eventually it just grinds you down with hordes.
TheAinMAP: benginRip
TehAmelie: okay maybe the health bar wasn't lying that much
talosparoxi: this is why I just make myself invincible, lets me have all the fun with none of the frustration
raaabr: This game does have difficulty settings, I thought
BrowneePoints: Directional screen flash would help
codatski: The game really doesn't tell you this, but you really want to keep moving as much as possible. That habit becomes invaluable later
Hangedman: It does have modifiers now
RandomTrivia: Oh that's concerning
KevinTheShark: Icons are generally reserved for pickups and interactibles in this game. Shootables are red
Alahmnat: I love the design of this room
2Flower: Yeah, I was trying to be slow and careful and use cover and the game hates you doing that.
Makrosian_Tae: They must have added the modifiers after I'd already completed it start to finish. Great to know that others that come after me won't have to deal with the suffering I did NotLikeThis
TehAmelie: gotta think like a Vanguard huh
KevinTheShark: Wait! I AM your manager!
JqlGirl: i love this mail room
Kaorti: he's being very evasive
wildpeaks: we're giving a performance review
JqlGirl: the aesthetic is so good
talosparoxi: I mean it kinda makes sense from a character perspective that the game incentivises you running around and firing wildly
TehAmelie: is this how junk mail is created?
Alahmnat: at least the aim assist is very generous
talosparoxi: it's not like jesse had combat training
manwichcannon: look tomasi, we will fire you if you dont stop flying around during office hours
Easilycrazyhat: Bosses never come back, Jesse
Angnor33: Was that a glorious pneumatic tube network?
Alahmnat: Hotline Mailroomi
KevinTheShark: Such a good level design
Easilycrazyhat: "That's telekinesis, Kyle"
Angnor33: I love it so much.
mycosect: mind bullets...mullets
snailkane: There were scannable items in the rooms you were before.
CrazyZonie: No, some of them were dead before.
Alahmnat: to be fair, some of them were already dead
RomanGoro: Can you imagine having a brain the size of whoever in-universe built this area and also IRL did the concept art?
TransientPoe: The funny thing is, I don't actually remember him coming back
wildpeaks: the ones that leave blood aren't our fault
Raiz0k: @Angnor33 : yup, plenty of that all over the building.
talosparoxi: @Angnor33 pneumatic tube system in a building that shifts randomly
TehAmelie: at least this game justifies why all the enemies hate you on sight. you're their boss!
TransientPoe: I kinda remember expecting to see him again and then the end credits rolled and I went "wait, that boss fight went nowhere!"
Easilycrazyhat: @TransientPoe I think that's a optional thing late game
manwichcannon: ill take my corpse with me thank you
TransientPoe: @Easilycrazyhat I thought I did all the optional stuff, but I may be misremembering
devil_dan: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:24:50.
RomanGoro: There's a reason in universe why they still use very old technology, but I can't quite remember it
Alahmnat: topical!
asthanius: This was a real thing!
gualdhar: huh, they're referencing real events
Raiz0k: So did we have the explanation on the shoulder grab?
SkylerRingtail: Huh. wasn't expecting a reference to 'recent' events
Kaorti: This is about the US cuban embassy ... thing a few years back
Easilycrazyhat: @TransientPoe He shows up in the Turntable
Kaorti: that guy sounds like an asshole
manwichcannon: @RomanGoro imagine a supercomputer becoming an object of power
Alahmnat: it's SUCH a good room
TransientPoe: @Easilycrazyhat Ah, that explains it. I never got very deep into the Turntable stuff; the rewards weren't worth it by that point in the game
raaabr: Comms room
KevinTheShark: A dream of cable sorting

xantos69: Its probably about 50-50 with the community and the mods.
Juliamon: I just wish more communities had access to LRRbot
Juliamon: It's SO useful
xantos69: I mean. Paul could always white label it then resell it to other streamers.
Juliamon: It's not Paul's though
Juliamon: It's a combined effort between several people
xantos69: Hua, I guess I just always figured that Paul put most of that fancy back-end stuff together.
