TehAmelie: heh, speaking of ads i just saw one for some clickbait that said "games that are basically pointless because no one can beat them", with a picture of Nier Automata
DeM0nFiRe: I haven't finished nier, but I seem to remember that it gives you a legitimately challenging boss fight like almost immediately upon starting the game
DeM0nFiRe: Or at least challenging for someone bad at video games like me lol
TehAmelie: i think Alex ran through it at least twice on Talking Sim
TehAmelie: they had a lot of things to say about it too
DeM0nFiRe: I had fun playing it but I think I got distracted before I got very far
Metric_Furlong: iirc it might have been the longest running TS series on a single game
Metric_Furlong: (I didn't watch much, on account of TS at the time being on at around 2 AM for me)
TehAmelie: i didn't watch much on account of planning on playing it myself
Metric_Furlong: (it also prompted some Extremely Normal comments in the Discord wrt to them playing it with the Japanese voice over)
TehAmelie: the best laid plans of mice and men, they will go astray, curse them, curse them. . .
Metric_Furlong: was going to comment about mice plans, but remembered if I did I'd just be ripping-off an Eddie Izzard routine
SmithKurosaki: that checkpoint last night was pretty on fire :)
Metric_Furlong: yeah, and educational
TehAmelie: quite
TehAmelie: *monocles*
beowuuf: I love graham quickly fact checking a coming up joke and it turning in to a whole education section. :D
TehAmelie: Metallica sure made themselves the face of aggressive copyright trolling but without actually doing much, huh
beowuuf: while everyone forgot about dre, apparently
TehAmelie: there's probably some metaphor for their whole career in metal there, depending on how much posers you think they are
TheMerricat: To be fair to those of us in history who shat on Metalica back then, they may not have created the DMCA but they were a large part of the reason why companies like YouTube don't even fuck with trying to implement a 'fair' version of copyright enforcement and instead default towards a more strict ("you can't go after us because we are even more draconian than the DMCA demands") system that is buddy buddy with the *AA's
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy! PrideWave
TehAmelie: Dr Bell! can you hear me?
NightValien28: ahoy hoy pharaoh
beowuuf: sergeHi
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah I think it's good to call out that Metallica's lawsuit was not particularly impactful. But imo it doesn't make it any less funny that they got silenced for copyright reasons
PharaohBender27: I trust every watched the teaser trailer for today's episode?
PharaohBender27: *everyone
GapFiller: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news :D) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (1s from now).
beowuuf: discussing it now and obliquely graham's commitment to a bit :D
DeM0nFiRe: I remember when Black Sabbath was doing the markting for their 13 album, their own copyright detection was deleting their videos from their own youtube lol
GapFiller: PogChamp
TheMerricat: Chat, save me. I just reinstalled Calibre on my laptop and have spent the last three hours effing around with the metadata for all my digital books and installing plugins to properly generate Library of Congress codes as if there will ever be anyone other than me using this shit.... :D
DeM0nFiRe: (Well, by "their own" I of course mean Google's with the parent publisher's input)
GapFiller: time was when CP+ was sketch length (5~6min) and possible to quickly cram in before stream started
GapFiller: those were the days eh (not that the present is any worse lets be clear)
Metric_Furlong: DeM0nFiRe copyright detection is the most Not Perfect System of Not Perfect Systems, really :p
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Oh dear, Library of Congress call numbers!? When I took cataloging class we had an assignment to assign call numbers to made-up titles, and Library of Congress cataloging numbers are such a hell of a thing.
TheMerricat: I really love that they've just made the stingers for Checkpoint a mini-chillpoint with G and Beej, the Beej, Paul, and Heather Chillpoint format rocks but I was starting to miss Graham's biting wit being contributed to them.
beowuuf: x2 speed trailer :p
PharaohBender27: Like, you have a book on locksmithing in 19th century Germany, so you have a base call number, but then because it's Germany, you have to add x amount to this base number and subtract y amount from another base number for 19th century . . .
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 that's why I'm using a plugin to do it for me :P
GapFiller: iirc Trent Reznor has bitten the hand that feeds him many times over the years for the Copyright laws that are ostensibly to help him infact causing him huge amounts of trouble
GapFiller: like the With Teeth ARG ting
TheMerricat: I honestly have no clue if it's doing it right or not, esp since most of the books are missing tons of metadata info still but... I'm a geek and if I can add 40k more useless metadata to my library system ;;; :D

Mai_Andra: Poor Anthem. I really liked it. Speaking of Anthem, Outriders demo is available.
Dared00: @Mai_Andra speaking of flops in the making? Kappa
Spacecarl: Which is a damn shame
RockPusher: I think we can switch the tense to *was* a game now
GapFiller: Anthem o7
SmithKurosaki: I'll miss anthem because even though it was a gameplay loop garbage fire, the mechanics were good
MAPBoardgames: I can't remember if it was battle royale or just a destiny clone.
SmithKurosaki: Press F for Anthem
PharaohBender27: I'd honestly forgotten that they were even going to try to revamp it
PutneyPrime: algorithmic punch
SmithKurosaki: destiny fraternal twin
RockPusher: Let's celebrate rational project management
TehAmelie: i remember the Iron Man flying business seemed so nearly incredible
Mai_Andra: Anthem was actually good at the core, but the main scenario was glitchy, and the post game was pointless and tedious.
DoodlestheGreat: I've watched someone play Outriders today. It's not Anthem, thank goodness. But what I've seen feels so much like a variation on Destiny. Either way, not my speed. Still, WAY better start for the game.
RockPusher: also *actually* reassigning the team rather than canning them
Mai_Andra: Outriders feels like Anthem, but for The Division.
niccus: and Destiny + Warframe were very well-established
SajuukSjet: Good Soundtrack though.... the One Lasting Legacy of Anthem :P
Metric_Furlong: the old 'Outer Wilds/Outer Worlds' problem
MAPBoardgames: worse
Mai_Andra: I still never played Dragon Age 3. I need to fix that somehow.
ButButTheJesus: @Mai_Andra same, but I'm perpetually in the middle of too many other games
SmithKurosaki: games as a service needs to die in a giant pit
mowdownjoe: *glares as Mass Effect 3*
LurkerSpine: ME3's online multiplayer was actually fun. It just wasn't something that had staying power
nemryn: oof
ButButTheJesus: @LurkerSpine yeah i enjoyed it
SmithKurosaki: it.was rather buggy and there were a lot of lost aspects which meant things didn't work as intended
DeM0nFiRe: I played ME3 multiplayer about 10 times and that felt like about the right amount of times to play it
Oghara: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out https://loadingreadyrun.com/live for an interactive schedule, or http://lrr.cc/schedule for a Google Calendar version.
Yamazuya: what gets me is the language that EA used. To say they *allowed* for a vastly popular single player franchise to remain single player is just...it boggles
SmithKurosaki: can confirm
Dared00: The Bioware vs EA thing is not entirely true, at least according to Jason Schreier: "BTW I should elaborate on one thing. Although some people within BioWare have been pushing for this, as the story says, there are also people at BioWare who very much wanted DA4 to be a multiplayer service game. Reality is never as simple as "EA wants X; BioWare wants Y.""
LurkerSpine: EA should just fire Andrew Wilson. CEOs of companies that large rarely do anything of value

Invitare: it's why none of the "wow killers" ever... did
DoodlestheGreat: And usually only one or two of specific genres.
TehAmelie: remember when everyone on your friends list was playing Overwatch?
SmithKurosaki: and that's where anthem crashed. that reward loop
MAPBoardgames: I've been WoW free for over 7 years
djalternative: I love these expansion names
TacitusVigil: Wait, Blinker Fluid is coming out?!
Pinwiz11: Path of Exile's three month cycle (and it rules)
Joalni: Beej has weird ideas about WoW, but he is definitely onto something.
NathanJay_GA: blinker fluid, the long-awaited sequel to muffler bearings
SmithKurosaki: destiny 2's current season is actually pretty good about keeping that loop going
DoodlestheGreat: That's why Path of Exile deliberately has the league system to slide new content into the game to test it.
LurkerSpine: I stopped playing Fire Emblem Heroes, and it's honestly been a big improvement in my life
TacitusVigil: I keep trying to get out, but they keep dragging me back in...
MAPBoardgames: It's a chase quest involving a dragon.
mtgbear: Hi guys, .. Loving the big hair lockdown hair ... actually looks cool.

DeM0nFiRe: I remember a game called Black Prophecy that was a really fun space shooter mmo but just didn't get popular. Ended up closing down before it left beta
Joalni: I do kinda hope that LRR does something similar to the Classic LAN stream when Burning Crusade Classic comes.
DoodlestheGreat: Yeah, when your game drops 99% of it's player in less than a week, YOU GOTS TRUBBLE.
AshBurnem: And yet they shut down City of Heroes.
TacitusVigil: Oh, has Star Citizen come out yet?
SoaringDragon42: The fun bit of Fortnite
Joalni: Fortnite wasn't "saved", more like it got derailed into its current form.
SmithKurosaki: is arena even there anymore?
mtgbear: very true
EvilBadman: Pivoting!
DeM0nFiRe: I would say No Man's SKy definitely evolved. The core gameplay is the same as it was at launch, they just keep adding stuff mostly
DoodlestheGreat: Same way that Sony turned into a BR from being a zombie sim.
Earthenone: as someone who played wow classic, that conversation is quite famillar
TacitusVigil: Class Action Hero.
Earthenone: yesi play wow, not the one you do though
DeM0nFiRe: No Man's Sky's problem was promising too much. The game was solid (though buggy) at launch, it just wasn't what was promised
mitomanox: Beej: which one deserves your life savings the most? The Pikachu magsafe charger or the Workboy?
Mai_Andra: No Man's Sky was functional and fine when it launched. It just wasn't as deep as a lot of people expected it to be. FFXIV was entirely broken and unfinished when it launched. For manually, it was literally unplayable.
SmithKurosaki: @dem0nfire anthem suffered the same problem tbh
TehAmelie: it's funny watching Graham's stream of No Man's Sky at launch where he's very happy getting exactly what he expected
Mai_Andra: *For many...
r10pez10: can i cash in my pigglesworth coins
EvilBadman: In our defense, "haha vbucks printer go brrbrr"
TheMerricat: All this talk reminds me of the old 2D SpaceWars like game called Subspace that got taken over by the community and shepparded to the point where they even now have a steam page for it - https://store.steampowered.com/app/352700/Subspace_Continuum/
djalternative: Yeah. That also sets so much bad law precedent for them
djalternative: they really should've gone for cash
LurkerSpine: I'm sure that court costs were covered.
MAPBoardgames: But they were paying their legal team anyways

Creideiki_SE: Whoa, Subsspace still exists? I played that back in university, *mumble* years ago.
DeM0nFiRe: Mai_Andra Yeah I agree there, FFXIV was like a massive pivot. NMS was more like "ok, we will eventually ive you everything we said we would and more"
WalrusOntheCourt: I love this idea. The lawyers got Vbucks. BUT MAYBE they got paid in loot boxes in the hope that they get lucky!!!!

kumatsu: "I ordered this expensive meal and it came out stone cold and full of crustacean shell"
r10pez10: "please come back"
SmithKurosaki: please try another hit, basically
WalrusOntheCourt: Always pay your legal fees in loot boxes.
teaspoonC: epics lawyers probably argued something similar to what Beej said, in any event
Hexi_Lexi: omg! thats LITERALLY 100% accurate. i say as a former smoker
LurkerSpine: did anyone sue Blizzard for Overwatch Loot boxes?
EvilBadman: Start running ads "Played Fortnite ever? You're entitled to a V-buck Settlement!"
djalternative: but paying out in Vbucks for a lawsuit means that Vbucks have real world value and therefor so do their micro-content
Peter200lx: They still to limited time
PharaohBender27: @EvilBadman katesLol
Dared00: yeah, Epic actually removed random boxes after acquiring Rocket League
Peter200lx: what is available at the moment is "random" or limited
TheMerricat: @djalternative *dramatic gopher turn* . gif
SmithKurosaki: yea, it looks like d2 removed random drops in place of pay silver for this specific thing as a result of the loot box lawsuits
argorlp: The thing with Overwatch Lootboxes is that they don't have any real value They give you cosmetics (and coins for cosmetics) but unlike CSGO or other games you can't trade stuff or sell it, once you buy it your money is basically gone xD It's still gamling don't understand me wrong, but it's gambling where you can't win anything of actual value
Peter200lx: you can't buy whatever you want in fortnight as I understand it, only what they choose to have available at the moment
Juliamon: I've only ever seen meters start at 25c
WalrusOntheCourt: But Nothing is exactly what a loot box gives you!
GapFiller: is it too much of a sloped shoulders moment to mention that its 2021 and people are STILL doing the video games cause violence ting?
WalrusOntheCourt: Law of equivalent exchange?
MaddogM: be careful with Loonied and Toonied - don't want to get DMCA'd
Diabore: maybe car jackings are going up because no one has been paid in a year in chicago
TheMerricat: The first thing I did as a 'real' adult with a 'real job' was walk into Wal-Mart and purchased a 5lb of Jolly Ranchers as an FU to all those gas stations I spent all my allowance in as a kid.

argorlp: For Warping we theoretically need to clone ourselves and kill the original, and that thought is really distressing xD
Ivalenz_: Heather hit it on the head. Food delivery drivers leave their cars unlocked and running. So there are cars out in the wild to be stolen. Since the car is running with keys in it, police classify the incident as a carjacking.
Onisquirrel: that's gotta be a sidequest/event in GTA right. Where somebody else treats you like an NPC in the game
Gnyrinn: OK, Just so you know: When Paul said that legislator's name, a ca. Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake happened.

SmithKurosaki: it's like when games release versions for australia
ghyllnox: Can we mess with the definition of "people"
GapFiller: tho thanks for the rant
TheMerricat: Heather, what they'd really do is they'd sue the Illinois government on First Amendment issues and have the law turned over in 20 seconds.
Creideiki_SE: Was it Duke Nukem 3D that had flowers instead of blood in Germany?
ghyllnox: Can these be very competent gorillas
Izandai: Didn't the Supreme Court put an end to this nonsense several years ago?
Juliamon: ghyllnox Animal abuse is covered in the same law
Gizmoloid: Considering they stole music from GTA 4 owners, when their license run out, they are more likely to patch the game for everyone if it came down to it.
EvilBadman: I'd be more concerned about Fast and Furious movies influencing street racing, tbh. That's at least more belivable.
ghyllnox: Drat. How about androids?

Dread_Pirate_Westley: Warning: Contents included.
DoodlestheGreat: "Oblique" is a good word for them. "Obscure" is anopther.
quillilian: Contains: Matter
Invitare: Contains?
argorlp: Warning are nice, and are not very hard to do, a 5 second Warning before the movie/game/series starts shouldn't really hurt anyone
Getter404: Outdated Cultural Depictions
TheMerricat: @Gizmoloid that's the one.
SmithKurosaki: there's a vision warning on d+
Izandai: There's a fine line to be walked between informing potential viewers about content that could be a problem for them and not spoiling the thing.
Onisquirrel: Warning: contains 1 love doctor
Mysticman89: mature subject matter is the one I see a lot of and that could mean a lot of things

mowdownjoe: That must be Canadian Netflix. There's a laundry list of content warnings before some of the shows I watched. *glares at Highrise Invasion, for more reasons than one*
DoodlestheGreat: Yeah, that's Sam and Max, alright!
TehAmelie: not super related, but speaking of legislation one problem with Elon Musk's plan for a Mars empire i worry about is how interplanetary lawyers will abuse light lag, calling into question when a law takes effect in relativistic terms and such
SmithKurosaki: I have to say, u appreciate
MAPBoardgames: "You know Sam, nothing spreads love quite like fully-automatic weapontry." "Actually, I thought those were bullets, Max." "Ehhh. Same thing."
Jeezy56: I'll take a Hexen reboot
Gnyrinn: I'm with the ESRB on that one. Rewarding violence towards non-violent characters is worse than just depicting violence.

TehAmelie: in my headcanon Doomguy is already a lady
Juliamon: You could also JUST SAY they're female
ravage2002: Well they already did... she was called Crash and was in quake 3 arena
NatShido: Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn.
ArcOfTheConclave: Just release a doom DLC to play as Samus
Drasvin: In Doom Eternal, the slayer does speak in a flashback
lirazel64: There's a ghost in there anyway.
teaspoonC: they have to figure out how to render little red bows on every single bullet
EvilBadman: Halo 3 already solved this with Fem Spartans in multiplayer, tbh
DoodlestheGreat: What do they expect, Doomguy with two beach balls grafted to the chest? notsquishY
TheMerricat: IMO, as much as I appreciate the concept that "we aren't just doing a model swap" suggests they are putting thought into trying not to be shitty, the whole "women have to be done differently" is far more annoying.
Izandai: I don't see why just doing a model swap wouldn't be totally fine. There's no reason that Doomgal couldn't be exactly the same musclebound armored badass that Doomguy is.
ghyllnox: Also see: trans doom guy?
RockPusher: They're overthinking themselves into doing something dumb
lirazel64: The power suit already has a sexy bod.
Getter404: Galaxy Brain: Doom and Perfect Dark are now under the same corporate umbrella. Make it the AvP of 90s FPSs
Mantafold: Turn into a ball?
NatShido: @rockpusher agreed.
djalternative: It seems to me that they wanted to make the female slayer her own character, which I appreciate
TacitusVigil: I assume Doom Guy is 90% spite at this point.
Izandai: @TheMerricat Agreed.
TehAmelie: the most embarrassing part i think is using "the doom slayer" as some kind of official character name
Izandai: It's so dumb. FailFish
teaspoonC: the word "Cooties!?" circled on a white board somewhere
MolaMolaphant: There are some other ways to pitch ultraviolence than "rage and raw brawn" but who knows what they're actually going to land on
EvilBadman: It is the name of the character in 2016, Eternal TheAmile, so that's official.
MaddogM: Overthinking it does make a change
PixelArtDragon: This entire thing would be so much better if they made it about making a completely different character instead of it being a *woman* character
r10pez10: i have no idea what chakram are, i keep thinking it's the things you align
PharaohBender27: It's like a crap comedian being, "See, men rip demon aliens apart *this* way, while women rip them apart this *other* way, amirite!?"
Izandai: ^
SmithKurosaki: there's no reason to genderize, exactly
TehAmelie: it's the demons' name for him. and the game documentation calls him "the doom marine". i like that they made it ambiguous
Invitare: How would it effect Doom Slayer's friendship with Isabelle from Animal Crossing?
TehAmelie: since we know it's really Doomguy in the game code
Onisquirrel: It's kind of weird that the people who realized simplifying Doom was the solution to modern Doom are now overthinking this.
SmithKurosaki: if they want to make a different class, sure... doesn't need to change the gender through
Gnyrinn: @PharaohBender27 I would love to see that comic. I'd probably bring a carrier bag of rotting vegetables to throw at them.
MaddogM: Think out loud to press
teaspoonC: like every time Peter Molyneux was ever in front of a camera
argorlp: I mean it would be cool to have different abilities to have a different game experience, but from a game Engineering point there really is no reason to
gravity_pike: speaking for the studio instead of speaking on a personal level
TheMerricat: To give them 1% of credit there is exactly ONE scene in the newest Doom where we see what DoomGuy would look like shirtless. So maybe they were concerned about _THAT_ cutscene. but 100% sure that this is what they are thinking of when they say they are making Doomguy a Doomgal - https://preview.redd.it/0z7d9mrmrez31.jpg?auto=webp&s=bb43677fbaa19d5bbd7d397274a45d33f8b93292
Invitare: oh no, he has lore these days. The demons killed his pet rabbit
nyperold: I guess there could be points where you do see her, helmet off, or even suit off, such as before she sets out. Maybe a monologue where she talks about her father.
Earthenone: im sure the jiggle physics of glory kills will cost millions to create
niccus: mod metroid prime's visor reflection into doom
SmithKurosaki: @themerricat yea that garbage is what I'm worried about
TehAmelie: heh, the belly armor
djalternative: Look, Doom Guy absolutely ROCKED the Doomicorn skin
r10pez10: samus isn't a robot??
SajuukSjet: and it's not like Doom Guy doesn't have the whole Unicorn Outfit :P
Loonatic93: Now I want to play Doom with a Magic Wand!
Izandai: @nyperold PrideLaugh
3and4fifths: Is...is Sailor Moon the new Doom Marine?
LurkerSpine: New Metroid when? :(
EvilBadman: @TehAmelie UAC facility announcements and reports call him the Slayer in Eternal.
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Orgmastron: 3and4fifths Surely it would be Sailor Mars
Izandai: @LurkerSpine Eventually™
TehAmelie: oh noes
Getter404: I mean he kind of does? The classic Doom Guy "pose" has his midriff being torn off and exposed
posty91: Isn’t doom guy the grandson of the Wolfenstein guy?
Getter404: He is a Massive Wall Of Meat
djalternative: the Doomicorn skin was def the most intimidating suit he had
3and4fifths: @Orgmastron there were wands mentioned...
Loonatic93: Doom Lady would be a Lamborghini!
gravity_pike: beej showing off his house's stairs in this story
KV1NN4: i totally yelled "also a ferrarri?!"
Dezufnocosem: "ruthless aggression"
MAPBoardgames: They were just thinking about the Ferrari that Doom Eternal bought him.
AshBurnem: Doom Slayer is more a Rat Fink Hot Rod.
TehAmelie: a Ferrari with a bow in its hair?
Mai_Andra: Does he know that Ferrari makes more than one car?
Juliamon: A PINK Ferrari
Izandai: oof
Styxseus: I mean the armor IS sort of sleeveless in doom eternal, but that hardly seems like enough to justify all of this
Invitare: no I want that
TacitusVigil: Oh God, Doom Karen
RockPusher: They should abandon this and just make the Isabelle doomslayerhappen
Orgmastron: Or """PMS"""
NimrodXIV: Doom Karen, omg
argorlp: I would really like Doom Karen xD
HorusFive: If that works, it would be a great Speedrun strat....
Mai_Andra: The female aggression will always target the nuts.
Dezufnocosem: regional satan
SmithKurosaki: Don Karen would be a great April folks
Jeezy56: I'd like to speak to your Mastermind

MAPBoardgames: “Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil... prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...” -Terry Pratchett
RobotInProgress: Doesn't even need a name change
TheMerricat: LOL @MAPBoardgames
Questhere: slay hellspawn with passive aggression
Loonatic93: Just copy Zarya from Overwatch!
Decaped: Maybe i'm too naive, but the quotes sound like trying to have a meaningful difference without falling into all those horrible tropes.
Izandai: Traditionally in western culture, the only "acceptable" way for a woman to be aggressive is in the "mother bear" role.
mitomanox: you can't imagine how much of a relief it is to see people talking about this with this vision after interacting with my family <3
Onisquirrel: sometimes a chainsaw is just a chainsaw and a demon is just a demon
r10pez10: i give it 20 seconds before someone clips beej saying penis
Weagle: My first thought for this story was just "female Doomslayer could just be Samus"
Izandai: And that... Why would that be Doomgal?
niccus: doom eternal was divisive in leaning a lot more into plot

Joalni: Female Shepard in Mass Effect is a fan favourite, though. Makes me wish a female slayer would be voiced by Jennifer Hale too.
TacitusVigil: Doom Guy cares not for plot, only smash!
TehAmelie: i'm sure they can take it further than Zarya. imagine. . .Zarya with a 10% more bisexual haircut!
prof_membrane: This entire story is about the male gaze. Including female doom slayer without having women in the creative process is not actually more progressive, it just has more tits.
Onisquirrel: doom has a lot of plot it just hides it behind the slaughter
Decaped: If they were going to just make a female caricature why would they even be fretting about it?
teaspoonC: @tehamelie we aren't ready
PixelArtDragon: I'm just curious, are there any women on Id Software's character design staff?
niccus: a demon roomba
NoTomToLose: "It's the only way to be sure"
Camail: and the game frames doomguy as cool because of that
TheMerricat: TBH while I understand the folk saying Samus could just be the DoomGal, really DoomGal isn't a thinking person like Samus. They don't talk, they don't work with someone else they just rip and tear. ANYTHING could be Doomguy, we could go the joke Skyrim route of having them be a bear. Just as long as they don't need to interact with anyone in any way other than kill or intimidate.
HorusFive: He has one setting
EvilBadman: in Eternal, he commandeers a gun to shoot himself to another planet. It's hilarious
r10pez10: if it bleeds, we can blow it up
Dezufnocosem: the opposite of "tactical espionage action"
EvilBadman: Like a giant space gun
nyperold: "We need to do this *carefully*." *CRUNCH* "... ... ...Or that."
MolaMolaphant: The charitable read is that they're trying to figure out how to make a distinct ultraviolent character, and how to make the animation design reflect that clearly
AshBurnem: No, the Slayer has two settings. Rip and also Tear.
prof_membrane: Samus is a hunter. Doom slayer is a walking cuisinart
SmithKurosaki: ^^ what mola said. the framing is just wrong either way
GapFiller: the Pichu was cute
mowdownjoe: And a lot of Pokemon news today, huh?
djalternative: no. the Slayer has a Jarvis for his thinking
iris_of_ether: Still love the electro physics joke
Drasvin: The slayer is only aggressive towards demons and those in league with demons or those that would get in the way of him killing demons
r10pez10: shut up and take my phone
nyperold: Speaking of shocking news.
ravage2002: Well he was the Doom Guy, you stay as long as him in hell and you'll want to destroy everything too
margieargie: So I kept my hands from reaching for my wallet during the Pichu story by having a Switch controlloer in my hands :p
NoTomToLose: more like chu-charger
NimrodXIV: I'm not even a huge Pokemon fan and I want one
Izandai: @TheMerricat Yeah, Samus is a completely different character from Doomguy, and IMO the only appropriate way to make Doomgal happen is for her to be EXACTLY the same character as Doomguy.
SoaringDragon42: Despite Beej's warning, my wallet did pop into my hand randomly
r10pez10: can we get a magnetite that erases hard drives
couldntpickausername: isn't magsafe specifically for older macbooks?
Camail: have a placeholder phone, i guess
Izandai: Because why should the fact that she's a woman change ANYTHING?
teaspoonC: presumably a production version would have a better looking induction pad
r10pez10: can we get a Surprised Pikachu model
niccus: guess you'll have to get an extra phone just to be cradled
Getter404: Oh, and it's Notch-Eared Pichu too, which is a distinct character in the anime apparently?
Spacepup: The problem is that Pichu can't control their electricity.
couldntpickausername: I thought the electricity was stored in the balls
r10pez10: the P (power) is stored in the balls
RockPusher: A plush toy, a seam ripper and a Qi pad
ButButTheJesus: @couldntpickausername gdi i lol'd
Earthenone: there was an episode of the anime early on where pikachus were powering the pokecenter
r10pez10: beej your phone matches your shirt matches the checkpoint overlay
LurkerSpine: I also jumped
accountmadeforants: Apple added magnets to Qi (like what the Palm Pre did, and the Nexus 4 and 5, I wanna say?) and called it MagSafe again
r10pez10: that made me jump too
Izandai: Oh that's neat.
TehAmelie: i always saw Doomguy as a moderately clever character. it's just that when it comes to demons he has determined there is nothing to think about, ever. just stomp them, and their friends, as fast and hard as possible
r10pez10: "what the hell was that NOISE"
Getter404: Fool of a Took!
diamondmx: Yeah the first few generations of that charger were fiddly af to get situated correctly.
Onisquirrel: candy!
RockPusher: Candy!
Camail: now i'm even more scared
r10pez10: candy!
NoTomToLose: Thank goodness! I was about to call the police!
ButButTheJesus: candy!
PixelArtDragon: Candy? Or a sewing kit!
Nigouki: it's the tin of candy Beej rattles when he wants to taunt the spirits
SmithKurosaki: the music choice was hilarious
r10pez10: loonie and toonie me for some candy pls
Getter404: It made it to Colbert. The olds know about it now!
MaddogM: "Those of you" we saw you jump Heather :P
PharaohBender27: @SmithKurosaki I'm let curious who decided to use that music and where they got it from :D
Metric_Furlong: and don't forget the boat-naming
PharaohBender27: Fact is, copyright law *PERIOD* is a hot mess
Izandai: ^
mitomanox: what puzzles me is how Blizzcon's team did NOT anticipate that they would have a problem with that on Twitch
SmithKurosaki: indeed. Tom Scott did a great video about it last year(?)
Getter404: I remember the early "using a sharpie on this disc is illegal" days of DMCA enforcement
PixelArtDragon: Drawing the line of the sand both makes what's over it illegal but also safeguards what's on the right side of it
gravity_pike: the dmca was created to protect the shape of boats. provide them a "safe harbor" if you will.
PharaohBender27: Whoops, sorry for jumping in front of your "^" there, @Izandai
diamondmx: If the false claims clause were pursued as vigorously as the infringement clause, it would be a significant bit better.
Izandai: The DMCA is not the problem. Youtube and Twitch are not the problem. Copyright law in general is the problem, and it's a problem that's just been getting patched for decades.
RockPusher: The issue is more that the legislature has become dysfunctional so updating the legislation to account for lessons learned since it was passed isn't happening
PharaohBender27: Or were you ^ing me and not Metric_Furlong?
Izandai: @PharaohBender27 Nonono, I'm agreeing with you.
teaspoonC: the pre-DMCA situation would effectively had been "YouTube doesn't exist"
accountmadeforants: "Instead of letting copyright hoarders fashion knives or call in air strikes, we just gave them all baseball bats and told them to sort it out."
RockPusher: Thus is true of most legislation from that particular legislature
LurkerSpine: Well, tech moves faster than law, and lawmakers are also stuck in the past.
PharaohBender27: @Izandai Oh OK! :D It just happened so fast I thought it was for the post above mine
Stoffern: Also: boats?
Izandai: "Lightning Fingers" they call me. Kappa
GapFiller: and if the past 20 yrs have taught us anything its that tech advancement speed has accelerated while law remains at the same constant glacial pace
LurkerSpine: Generally speaking, most US reps were born before the freaking walkman
PharaohBender27: @LurkerSpine Also certain entities and industries try to make it so it works in their favor *cough*Disney*cough*
RockPusher: The legislative harmonisation is wonderful cover for corporate imperialism
Nigouki: you wouldn't download a boat
lirazel64: @pharaohbender27 Watch out, the Mouse has Ears.
accountmadeforants: A lobbyist snuck someone a fiver and they added it in, I'm sure.
Camail: that was their hill
RockPusher: Plundering the public domain for profit
diamondmx: @Nigouki Hell yeah I would
PixelArtDragon: I'm just confused as to how boat hull designs aren't under patent law
ButButTheJesus: @Nigouki i would if i could!
Camail: its a small hill, with no one dying on either side
RockPusher: Weird amendments are a hallmark of that legislatiure
RockPusher: *legislature
SmithKurosaki: not to get super politics y, but corporate lobbying is a bit issue
PharaohBender27: I was about to say, remember the whole SOPA thing?
Earthenone: yeah, you could end up with some weird car guy instead of a weird boat guy
lirazel64: @pixelartdragon Hull designs are based on fluid dynamics and thus are very similar. A fruitful area for piracy lawsuitsà
JAndersonCAD: Just finished watching the HeroQuest videos Paul and those were so wonderful and entertaining!
gravity_pike: youtube / twitch basically always just take things down, instead of following the provisions of the DMCA, because they're not OBLIGATED to host any content, and it's cheaper to just take everything down instead of hiring a human to make a decision
PharaohBender27: ^
SoaringDragon42: Weird Al wrote a song about it. Offered it for free on his website. >_>
GapFiller: theres a doing it for the art/doing it for the money divide at play there
PixelArtDragon: @lirazel64 Right, but isn't patent law already a field that's supposed to deal with different designs?
sendatou: #PayTheArtists
gravity_pike: System of a Down released the album, "Steal this Album" because they were mad at their label
GapFiller: no touring is STILL the main income source for most musicians
Laserbeaks_Fury: That darn Backstreet Boys Reunion Tour
MaddogM: It's the Merch more than the touring
GapFiller: said as somebody immersed in that world
DoodlestheGreat: Yeah, touring's less important for small artists.
GapFiller: touring is still How Its Done
GapFiller: esp for DIY people
3and4fifths: It what we call the touring test :p
DigitalSeahorse: how I guess they make money off having people find that song and want to use it commercially cause it just that good
Getter404: It was sad hearing about rock legends in their 70s and 80s saying "I don't even like doing this anymore, but if I'm not touring 50 weeks a year I can't afford my insulin" and similar sentiments
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL @GapFiller how do you tour when no one can come to your shows?
SajuukSjet: the one big Not Bad Deal for Artists distributing online that i know of.... is Bandcamp
Izandai: Paul, I have bad news.
GapFiller: LoadingReadyRun the present situation is a special case
argorlp: Here in Germany there was a similar problem for meny years because GEMA (the main organ for music rights here) couldn't make an agreement with youtube, so many Music Videos were blocked until 2018 I think Many people started to make jokes about a cool new music video named Gangnam Style because we actually couldn't (without a VPN) watch it here
DigitalSeahorse: online zoom ticket events :P
teaspoonC: Zoom shows have been a thing, to some degree
GapFiller: and thats one way the current situation has been so devestating
r10pez10: checkpoint: your weekly fortnitely news update
posty91: The beginning of the next month is Monday...
DigitalSeahorse: xenomorphs
TehAmelie: Aliens ironically fit in everywhere
Getter404: I played 1.0 when it was just Traps N Zombies for like 2-3 weeks, uninstalled, then like a month later all this happened
Laserbeaks_Fury: and a Ripley skin
margieargie: Oh, that, I was thinking little green men / grays
PixelArtDragon: Oh, that thing from Cam's campaign lrrBEEJ
tenthtechpriest: first law is in fortnite?
DigitalSeahorse: I hope thatès a scrabble word now
nyperold: If you wanted to figure out if you were able to tour, did you do a touring test?
RobotInProgress: can't wait for the episode of Heat Death , done entirely in Fortnite
NathanJay_GA: A few news websites have posted articles about the Deathloop trailer, some talking about how the music sounds like a Bond theme song. What do you think of it? Has Graham made any comments about the trailer, considering his recent interest in the film series?
niccus: a little easy to headshot
MAPBoardgames: Ep3 of First Law on LRR on Monday.
Zalthia: Those things from Cam's- dang it @pixelartdragon
Laserbeaks_Fury: BIG RIGS
Creideiki_SE: Pet peeve: "Xenomorph" is just what the lieutenant in Aliens called them when he wanted to sound posh. It's not a proper name.
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, that Polygon video is great. We love the big vampire lady because of her big... rigs
GapFiller: OH the Dinosaur Planet story
GapFiller: yeh this is a tickle
Izandai: @Creideiki_SE It is though. Because people decided it is. Because "The Alien" is too nonspecific.
DigitalSeahorse: but now people have used xenomorph enough that it became the name
RockPusher: foxmarLOVE
DeM0nFiRe: I had never heard of this game until I saw a streamer play it like 5 years ago and then it totally disappeared from my awareness again until I heard about it being leaked
TehAmelie: "xenomorph" works. just like "cloverfield"
Getter404: It sure was nice how Starfox ended after 2 games and was never seen again.
teaspoonC: if you wanted to be annoyingly scientific it could be "Nostromona nostromona" or something

accountmadeforants: Like if they sold Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as a Mario game, people would be disappointed
Gnyrinn: The xenomorph style way of naming things is kinda legit. Look at medicine: "idiopathic" means "I don't know why", "pneumonia" means "ling illness", etc.
DigitalSeahorse: TehAmelie and so it was called That Spoopy Movie Without A Title
Joalni: I can now confirm that the Twitch purple screen of death activates even if your Adblock is disabled. Also it loops, so yey. Twitch pls fix your bussing systems.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun I don't know if this is something you need/want to address during a Chillpoint but just a headsup that I _JUST_ got an email from Fangamer saying that they've been informed that the company behind their storefront has informed them that they had a potentially huge data breach concerning customer data. :(
Izandai: TBH Federation Force would've been fine even with the Metroid branding if the series had gotten a new mainline game at all recently.
Spacepup: Especially because they bait you with a R-Wing section right at the start of Starfox Adventure, and then never again.
NatShido: @qvdv Need sales boosts to help those year-on-year record profits.
Vyous: 60 frames? We want 144 now Kappa

Mai_Andra: It was also possible to release unlicensed games for Nintendo that didn't actually go through the company 's testing approval. We had a few based on Bible Stories.
margieargie: Ohhhh that would bother me SO much
Izandai: huh
Getter404: Just had to retire my Mario Red joy-cons, lefty's starting to drift too much
MAPBoardgames: Do we have a pic of these joycons?
Getter404: Where. Is. Spice Orange.
EvilBadman: the Mario one has to be exactly THIS red.
Juliamon: Bring Back Spice Orange
EvilBadman: i.e. a specific pantone for mario
Q_sic subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 53 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Q_sic! (Today's storm count: 25)
MaddogM: They're filling out the gradient :P
NathanJay_GA: I wonder how much of it is due to different shades of red by design, and how much is just slight differences in different batches of plastic
LurkerSpine: I'm worried to use my joycons. I don't want drift
ButButTheJesus: huh
GapFiller: OHHH
RockPusher: That's very noticeable
Stoffern: waow
margieargie: Owwwww
TimeToFry: Oh man
Diabore: oh i HATE this
PharaohBender27: The one second from left looks almost orange-y to me
SmithKurosaki: yea that sucks
GapFiller: thats either the Best Thing Ever or The Worst
AshBurnem: I want that translucent Atomic Purple.
Juliamon: (but actually the 'gold' right joycon is a decent orange)
NimrodXIV: yeah, I would just think dye lot. lol
accountmadeforants: Every single time a new designer comes in they go "We should do red, we didn't do that one yet, right?" and they don't have the heart to tell them.
Izandai: Those left two are almost identical but the rest are pretty distinct IMO.
PharaohBender27: Oh yeah, that's so weird
Mysticman89: left and second to left is almost the same imo, but the other yeah
NoTomToLose: Peer Schneider of n64.com fame?!
teaspoonC: oooh it's reflected in the software, that's wild
NoTomToLose: Probably don't click that
EvilBadman: There's a software you can download on pc that let's you change the color of the joycon that is reported to the switch too
TimeToFry: ???
GapFiller: OH this
tenthtechpriest: with real frogs?
RockPusher: Bring on the wall!!!
LurkerSpine: not with actual traffic I hope
SquareDotCube: "don't get run over"
eshplode: That's not the worst thing ever?
quillilian: Oh so not an FMV game
Onisquirrel: how do they train the frogs?
NatShido: Lol floor is lava.
Invitare: sounds like Frog Fractions... er... 3? tbh
ButButTheJesus: the seinfeld episode!
Izandai: PrideLaugh
tenthtechpriest: and will the cars be real
tangokilo421: So we get to see people get bodied by cars in a safe manner? Sign me up!
LurkerSpine: Oh it's Konami
InquisitorGaia: what is this MXC?!?!?
Onisquirrel: gameshow frog fraction would be interesting
teaspoonC: hopefully literally no one involved in Floor Is Lava is anywhere near it
nyperold: Okay, I can see it being an AR game?
Getter404: From the sound of the application forms, it's *extremely* HEY GUYS REMEMBER THE 80S
TheMerricat: In before they do Jungle Hunt or Pitfall :P
AshBurnem: Does the show have.... legs?
accountmadeforants: One episode of Frogger, twelve episodes of legal drama documentary
Laserbeaks_Fury: Burgertime: just run over a bunch of hamburgers
GapFiller: this all sounds like Takeshis Castle but KILLER
GapFiller: or The Running Man
Mai_Andra: So, it's Mega64? A "real life" pantomime of video games?
Onisquirrel: their was that panalyst topic about Predator reality shows. Could that end up true
GapFiller: actually yeh this is uncomfortably close to The Running Man
ButButTheJesus: @AshBurnem oh u
QuietJay: is it self driving car vs pedestrian testing?
teaspoonC: the slow march toward actual Hunger Games continues
wildpeaks: "one of"
DoktorNik: So I didn't have any time this week, crazy busy with work. But Nothing about blizz con anywhere, was it just that meh this yeah?
GapFiller: DoktorNik yes
NathanJay_GA: there's still a potential post-mortem story, too
diamondmx: I heard they didn't lay them off, just reorganised them into other parts of google.
accountmadeforants: Stadia is a weird custom Linux thing, as I understand it?
ArcOfTheConclave: they HAD a team
kumatsu: speaking of Stadia, looks like there's resolution on the Terraria thing as of this afternoon
EvilBadman: Oh, there's an even newer Stadia Story, then. The spent A TON on trying to court publishers to put their games on the platform. Like, super over paid.
teaspoonC: D2 remake, D4 still coming, nothing too fancy
nyperold: "Man buys Stadia, says it's a 'collector's item'"
accountmadeforants: Of course that fucking happened LUL
Gnyrinn: Weren't the Stadia servers supposed to run on linux?
QuietJay: The Terraria Stadia launch is back on.
LurkerSpine: isn't journey to the savage planet on a bunch of systems?
TheMerricat: "Stadia is built on Debian Linux servers and Vulkan is their graphics API." @accountmadeforants
QuietJay: The Terraria devs got their google accounts back.
TheMerricat: @QuietJay WOOT! when did that happen and did they post what it took to happen or did they just turn back on mysteriously?
ButButTheJesus: spiderman pointing at spiderman pointing at spiderman
QuietJay: Posted today in terraria fprums
gravity_pike: what was the name of this game?
GapFiller: eyyy Diamond and Pearl
mowdownjoe: Heather now talks Pokemon.
accountmadeforants: TheMerricat Oh, shouldn't be too weird, then.
GapFiller: yeh people talked abt it on James stream
recursioning: Not defending everyone or this behavior but many engineers are working our asses off to keep thing running
mowdownjoe: Got to hear Ben's take on the Pokemon news...
ButButTheJesus: i was also awake at 7 but not for pokemon
GapFiller: Pokemon Snap being 20 yrs old makes me feel old
Diabore: im not sold on the chibi art style
asddsa28: i wanted it for so long
Juliamon: The D/P remakes I honestly think are a brilliant design
TimeToFry: Its basically been a meme for years
asddsa28: the mingame
GapFiller: and not just in the haha old sense but actual early onset middle age sadness
RunningMonkeys: black white 3 when?
RunningMonkeys: :p
Wolfstrike_NL: BW remake when?
couldntpickausername: I just want ports to the switch
Invitare: nah the next one will be Hoenn again. More trumpets
Earthenone: gen 4 is the ice cream generation right?
margieargie: People have been calling for it ever since ORAS, really
Izandai: I was thrown by the chibi overworld models, but I do kind of like it. It's more similar to the original sprites.
asddsa28: who cares about black and wight not me
margieargie: at least
Invitare: Vanilluxe was gen V
Getter404: ILCA: The makers of the Domino's Hatsune Miku AR app. This is not a joke, that's on their resume.
SK__Ren: Forget pokemon. We had a great remake of Links Awakening... when are we getting a remake of Oracle of Ages/Seasons?
Onisquirrel: D/P is when I got back into Pokemon so it is the other nostalgia game for me.
diamondmx: Yeah, a Black & White 3 would be sweet. More god-games!
NatShido: @sk__ren ikr!
Juliamon: The style seems like a really fun way to update 'retro' graphics without going 'just pixel art'
Izandai: @SK__Ren YES
Invitare: Gen VI was quite different
SydPreviouslyHeadache: if they remake Oracle of Seasons/Ages, i hope it's on a single cart. but yeah, I found out gen 4 had very few fire types
Diabore: ar-key-us apparently
asddsa28: yesss
Invitare: I believe it's Arch-eus
Earthenone: nobunaga?
Invitare: as in Arch and Deus
chesul: card C, like in Arctic.
Camail: do not pursue
mowdownjoe: Ar-see-us in Japan, Ar-kay-us in US.
TheMerricat: @diamondmx with our luck, Black and White 3 would be a mobile game and you'd have microtransactions for getting mana back.
SK__Ren: Prof Oda
Izandai: @mowdownjoe So it's ar-see-us
Mai_Andra: "Breath of the Wild Area" is the common take.
Invitare: Breath of the Bidoof
accountmadeforants: SydPreviouslyHeadache I hope it also integrates the third Oracle game they were originally planning
Newigeg: ar-see-us was the official pronunciation until they realized that it had the word "arse" in it. now it's ark-eus.
KaleidoscopeMind: I refuse to say "ar-key-us" because it just makes me thing it is a kingdom hearts connection
Juliamon: It looks like basically Let's Go, Sinnoh, But Also Feudal Era
diamondmx: @TheMerricat More likely, Peter Molyneux comes back and Molyneuxs the f out of it.
TacitusVigil: No! Bad Beej! Not every game needs Nobunaga!
Invitare: period appropriate Samurott
tenthtechpriest: gen 4 famously had a fire leader in the elite four whose team was mostly not fire types
Joalni: It looked like alpha footage. At least I hope it's still in alpha.
Izandai: @accountmadeforants That is also my dream, but I'm sure it's only a dream.
Diabore: 7-2-8 i think?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: @accountmadeforants i forgot about the third sage, that'd be so cool
mowdownjoe: @Izandai More or less. I mean, they used that in the Detective Pikachu film, so 🤷♀️
Invitare: but Heather, it's a Samurai. It fits
3and4fifths: and Chimchar in the wild
asddsa28: i love gen 4
TimeToFry: It is something different, which is cool!
Diabore: i dont know why they used the scenes with 5 fps pokemon
Onisquirrel: I like this idea for starters. mixing different gens

argorlp: Pokemon Legends Arceus is another one of those games were I would reall like to have a Switch Pro
Izandai: Battling looks standard.
Izandai: @TheMerricat PrideLaugh Amazing
TehAmelie: Nobunaga, i choose you!
wildpeaks: pokemon of tsushima
Joalni: Also we got some more Pokemon Snap footage.
Mai_Andra: FF7R: Y
Izandai: Kena
Izandai: Kena is hype Sifu is hype, the FF7R news is SUPER hype.
Joalni: Yuffie is back!
DeM0nFiRe: It's a remaster of a remake LUL
GapFiller: Nomura is just back on his bullshit again
Juliamon: Final Fantasy VII: Remember When We Gave You All Those Other In-Universe Games When Advent Children Came Out? We're Doing That Again
tenthtechpriest: $560 dlc
Izandai: It *is* very nice that upgrading is free.
asddsa28: woo
Diabore: its a free ps4-ps5 upgrade for the base game
cuttlefishman: Yuffie shouldn't be in the gam as far as they got in the game?
EvilBadman: @cuttlefishman Remake's weird, don't expect story to be the same [spoilers]
Diabore: @cuttlefishman by og ff7 no, but this is a reimagining more than a remake
Joalni: @cuttlefishman It seems she has a side mission in the DLC and doesn't interact with the main cast
Orgmastron: cuttlefishman Yes, they're adding her in the DLC
argorlp: Paul can upgrade FF7 up to five times
Izandai: Basically, if you already paid for FF7R, you probably won't have to pay for it again. But you will have to pay something for the new story with Yuffie. And I think that's all totally fair.
SmithKurosaki: kind of hard to play on PS4 when there's no stoxl
SmithKurosaki: stock*
accountmadeforants: FF7 remake is effectively a different game from FF7, despite the "remake" name.
SmithKurosaki: PS4, also*
Juliamon: The "remake" in the name includes the plot
ButButTheJesus: @tenthtechpriest and there's a part of my brain going"worth it"
Skeletonman1100: Yuffie's Moogle outfit is FREAKING cute.
SmithKurosaki: PS5... wow keyboard can't accept ps5 apparently
Orgmastron: I think Yuffie is cool
TehAmelie: can't wait for the complete edition FF7R in. . .20 years?
AshBurnem: Vincent got a whole game.
Onisquirrel: The DLC looks to be Yuffie and new characters wandering MIdgar during the remake story doing their own thing.
EvilBadman: Yeah, "Remake" doesn't exclusively mean they didn't change stuff.
teaspoonC: I'm not aware of any FF7 characters that don't have a following
Izandai: @cuttlefishman The Yuffie story seems to occur around what we saw in FF7R without intersecting with it, so technically not a retcon. Just showing a thing we hadn't seen before.
Stoffern: So is this DLC the next part of the FF7 story or is this DLC just a smaller thing?
Mai_Andra: The streamer I was watching exploded when Yuffie appeared. I think she's popular. =|
Izandai: Ever Crisis is WILD
DeM0nFiRe: The other one is another FF7 remake isn't it?
Skeletonman1100: Actually a materia match 3 would be kinda cool.
Izandai: Some kind of retelling of the ENTIRETY of the FF7 Compilation.
Diabore: @Stoffern side story for yuffie beside the story happening in ff7r
wildpeaks: penultimate fantasy
DeM0nFiRe: Or did I misunderstand that?
Joalni: It seems to be new lore @Stoffern but not the next big chapter of the story.
Izandai: @DeM0nFiRe No, you've got it.
Earthenone: they built midgar, not so much the ff7 universe
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Diabore: @DeM0nFiRe you did not, it is a reimagining of every other ff7 game from what ive read
HorusFive: The internet? Mad? At Beej? lrrBEEJ
Juliamon: Isn't Midgar just most of the game anyway? Kappa
Stoffern: Huh, they realy are adding a lot to the FF7 story this time around
Izandai: Has he beaten FF7R yet?
Diabore: id be shocked if he hadnt
accountmadeforants: Isn't Midgar just the tutorial section? Kappa Juliamon
Joalni: IIRC yes @Izandai
AshBurnem: None of my takes are shitty, they are all hot!!
teaspoonC: Beej driving that engagement
Izandai: PrideLaugh
couldntpickausername: we love you heather
TheMerricat: LOL Paul
iris_of_ether: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
HorusFive: I have Soooo many uninformed takes!
Snowcookies: wow Paul
PharaohBender27: lunarj1Heart lrrHEATHER lunarj1Heart
DoodlestheGreat: I tried to keep my own commentary tongue in cheek, at worst. It was a fine episode.
TehAmelie: here i was thinking i was generous in predicting they'd make Gold Saucer into a separate game
Izandai: YES PAUL
Izandai: I also noticed that
Earthenone: FF-XXI will be cool too i guess
ButButTheJesus: pls be nice to Heather katesLove
margieargie: So next game is FF XXI?
AshBurnem: Can we skip to 21?
Skeletonman1100: They did, but it's gonna take at least a year until we get more info about it.
accountmadeforants: They're still supporting Final Fantasy 11, I heard
Izandai: The next FF that's going to be a bighuge deal is 21
TheMerricat: Next game has to be 28.
Metric_Furlong: setting themselves up for FFXXI
BrindleBoar: Yes, much like there will be an Elder Scrolls 6, there will be a Final Fantasy 16. They made a non-announcement.
kumatsu: Give us a complete remake of FF 6, cowards
Izandai: PrideLaugh
3and4fifths: FF69
LurkerSpine: 15 had a bunch of DLC, but also that stopped because the director left
DoodlestheGreat: Passive aggressive?
MAPBoardgames: Beej nails the call-back
elkae: No aggression plz
Orgmastron: lrrWOW Beej
ghyllnox: Female aggression?
elkae: D:
Mai_Andra: FFXVI hype, FFXI:R hype
argorlp: I only make passive aggressive comments
SnackPak_: y'all are aggressively awesome
FanboyBryan: <3
Izandai: Though I do hope that FF16 is really good. I'm quite hype for that game.
PharaohBender27: Cheer300
TheMerricat: If we Karen and ask to speak to Beej's manager. Do we get Heather or Graham?
Qvdv: paper in spirit
TehAmelie: "use differently gendered aggression" should totally be in !badadvice
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Por que no los dos?
elkae: You get Heather saying "I AM the manager"
Mai_Andra: FF1-6 on switch hype (please?) curiousjoiKupo
EvilBadman: @TheMerricat Beej counters with "I am the manager."
DoodlestheGreat: Kaldheim Seals! ORK ORK!
Izandai: @TehAmelie Agreed
Earthenone: who will be on the show tonight?
Diabore: i dont know if sealed is still up
accountmadeforants: Specifically renamed to distinguish from the digital stuff they do, only to be stuck in a digital world
elkae: Dammit I meant Beej. What EvilBadman said
Mai_Andra: FF8R hype? curiousjoiMosey
beowuuf: must have been a huge long script for cp+ too :p
HorusFive: narrator voice [he would not]
PharaohBender27: Something's going to happen!
Relentless_Bread: final fantasy 9 was the best final fantasy
ButButTheJesus: wooo
DoodlestheGreat: YAY
Spacecarl: Also I dont think you can even escape in the game yet?
TehAmelie: woo
MAPBoardgames: LRL Hype!
Orgmastron: LRL HYPE!

Snowcookies: Yay Live
PharaohBender27: Oooooh

Izandai: oh boy
iris_of_ether: Re: managers - I mean, it's not like I'm painting a tiny Heather Gendo model over here, for future donation....
TheMerricat: lol @iris_of_ether
Diabore: so its probably going to be draft, sealed is no longer up on arena
Onisquirrel: @Mai_Andra I wouldn't hate that.
SnackPak_: sergeJustRight iris_of_ether
beowuuf: now the games truly begin
SmithKurosaki: hope to see more vampire soon :)
ghyllnox: Furslaw!
TheMerricat: I demand a running stress induction counter for the players :P

TheMerricat: lol @Juliamon
Earthenone: @Juliamon i mean with talking sim followed by lets nope that is kind of the usual transition :P
Juliamon: Earthenone This is moreso than usual though
