KronicDeth: I missed cat ears?!
juneblue58: Cat ears? I'm instantly sold.
razgriz792: Wait third. I watched the first on youtube. is the second not up yet
CMDRNuffin: oh no I missed session 2 and half of session 1 (because pesky work). anyway
kusinohki: I don't remember cat ears... (not that I've played this game for myself)
KronicDeth: @razgriz792 2nd is in VODs here

Alahmnat: but with a lot less racism

thetoastmonster: #2 pencils are not allowed in the Oldest House.
2Flower: I like that they avoided the common SCP trap of "ordinary object what kills ya dead" most of the time.
grgriffin3: I think it's on a different level, yeah
Easilycrazyhat: So basic
RandomTrivia: I believe they said that #2 Pencils are dangerous because of their iconographic nature as recognisable, rather than that they specifically do things
Foxmar320: Hello Cameron and Cori
Robot_Bones: Thank you!
noSmokeFire: those are some real triple-A titles
TehAmelie: very meaty books. the movie goes pretty hard too
razgriz792: BOOOM
2Flower: I will say the endless parade of orange dudes does get a little tiring as the game goes on.
2Flower: Like, I'm in this for the story and atmosphere, not 995,194 gunfights
plummeting_sloth: all the world is a chunk
grgriffin3: Those pesky walls
kusinohki: nice warm up nice warm up...
Foxmar320: muligan
noSmokeFire: they say the new director can throw objects...directly into her own face
Kaorti: punch a chunk right into their stupid heads
Jay_Blanc: The walls are the most direct part of the Oldest House. And you're just ripping chunks out of it. To throw around. Anyone asked the Oldest House how it feels about that?

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, xerjen! (Today's storm count: 51)
grgriffin3: I personally always enjoyed the fights, but maybe I just enjoyed throwing things at other things
KronicDeth: The gun fights can be annoying, but if you get the flying powers, it's a bit more fun. Especially in Research with the bit atrium.
Foxmar320: Remedy has that problem with their games
edididididididddiiddd: lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrGOAT lrrFRUMP lrrFRUMP
Alahmnat: it does tend to get repetitive after a while, especially since they keep respawning in areas we've already cleared out
TehAmelie: turning the difficulty down weirdly makes the combat more tedious, although i guess it evens out with you dying less
Robot_Bones: unarmeGameplay
Easilycrazyhat: I too enjoyed the fights. The physics engine was too fun to mess around with.
razgriz792: Its very theraputic to hit people with things
Kaorti: the game doesn't force you to change up your approach, but switching up your tools helps keep things fun.
Foxmar320: The combat can be fun but sometimes it just goes on too long
noSmokeFire: "does this gameplay respect my time"
2Flower: I really wish Control HAD difficulty settings, if only so you can breeze through when you get tired of it.
grgriffin3: I also like that the flying guys are designed to be able to dodge thrown objects but you can still hit them if you know how to manipulate things properly
plummeting_sloth: yeah, the combat can be non-tedious, but you basically have to force your own challenges on to it to get there
Jay_Blanc: Control *DOES* have difficulty settings. See 'Assist Mode'.
GamesAndInk: And in Mass Effect, you're some sort of super-soldier and genius commander, so turning the difficulty down can make you FEEL like one since you're not always dying
VorlonScout: @2Flower It does, they added them a year after release, but they're there now.
CururuGuasu: As I get older I’m more and more willing to switch to Easy mode when needed
grgriffin3: That was a timed mission I think, it just awards bonus crafting materials
Easilycrazyhat: You had a temporary side mission. I think you completed it.
2Flower: @VorlonScout Oh, nice. I played on release, and it was just "go depopulate the world"
Kaorti: yeah, the side mission ended after that death.
Alahmnat: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: i ended up with a bugged mission that never got there before the time ran out, so that can happen
johnalogue: bright and organic becomes scary in this context
grgriffin3: I'm pretty sure Research is a new floor of the building?
grgriffin3: Might need to use the elevator
plummeting_sloth: like I did a "forklift kills only run" for a bit to liven things up, but that was me making my own fun
Alahmnat: yeah, Research is its own division
Jay_Blanc: The Assist Mode settings in Control are very fine-grained to let you have a very detailed adjustment of things in the game you might find too difficult.
CururuGuasu: Good old [REDACTED] map
JadedCynic: Heh; silly me - I was getting in the mood for this by going and replaying Alan Wake, and I got wrapped up in it and lost track of time :D
Kaorti: this is an amazing room
grgriffin3: I adore the popups for each new sector, the aesthetic just appeals to me so much
TehAmelie: i read that as roleplaying Alan Wake which seems fun
Easilycrazyhat: Don't forget you can watch these in the collectible menu

plummeting_sloth: boy, is our face going to be red when it turns out it's easy to drive the Hiss out of the people we've been turning into a fine red mist
2Flower: I mean if you aren't making puns when you throw stuff are you even playing this game?
JadedCynic: "Cool Off!"
nyperold: "So, how much can you BENCH?"
EricTheOrange: well google says para means "Para- (prefix): A prefix with many meanings, including: alongside of, beside, near, resembling, beyond, apart from, and abnormal."
johnalogue: another sniper polite enough to show exactly where they're aiming
plummeting_sloth: so I missed a bit of the last stream, did we ever unlock any more configurations of the service revolver
kusinohki: famous Arnold line "yeargh!"
thetoastmonster: "I'm not supposed to get lead in them!"
JadedCynic: "Let off some steam, <name>" - last line vs big bad in "Commando"
Kaorti: that's our thing!
smquinn22: Be prepared to die... a lot
2Flower: Many whelps, left side!
EricTheOrange: considering this game I'm guessing para in parapsychology means abnormal.
AlphaHelixNZ: Yeah the telekinesis practically compels you to shout great one-liners.
smquinn22: I love this game, but my god
Alahmnat: it took me longer than I care to admit that you had to shoot those red globbies
Alahmnat: in order to dismiss the wall
JadedCynic: "Stop and SMELL THE FLOWERS!" *whack*
Kaorti: donk!
JadedCynic: oh yeah - I get that Black Mesa vibe
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: "Looks like some sort of sidewalk SLAM"
better_seasons: If I recall the developers have said they had a lot of issues with this area specifically, during development.
johnalogue: can they equip those weapon mods?
JadedCynic: they're SMART; I like the progress
vellebastet: Hello
CAKHost: The zombine or just combine?
Kipstar: @Alahmnat I never worked that out! I gave up at this point cos I couldn't work out where to go!
plummeting_sloth: Chest high walls mean a lot less when you can tear concrete chucks with your mind
Foxmar320: Research is also the first time copyrighted music shows up normally.
JadedCynic: ooo, all the stuffing coming out of that padded chair
Jay_Blanc: Go downstairs. There's a special thing allllll the way downstairs.
grgriffin3: Don't worry, the Oldest House will fix it
Alahmnat: @Kipstar I had to look it up, heh
2Flower: Jeese is going to have to make a very, very extensive trip to IKEA at the end of this to replace all the crap she smashed.
plummeting_sloth: huh, yeah... I wonder if the first person we meet being a janitor has anything to do with the fact that we're just absolutely trashing this place
v_nome: Classified lunch menu
ContingentCat: lrrFINE
JadedCynic: well, that's the peril of using concrete in brutalist architecture - the material is rather impermanent and needs lots of upkeep
kusinohki: illegally working during lunch break
Easilycrazyhat: Probably didn't have time to put it away when the Hiss invaded their brain.
Kaorti: copyrighted music
Alahmnat: [redacted]
e_bloc: poor opsec
plummeting_sloth: Ah, trying the Fonzi on it
e_bloc: really no reason for there to be TS docs in the cafeteria
Easilycrazyhat: mmmm, Mold
Foxmar320: Rude
grgriffin3: Remember: Do not touch the mold!
nyperold: It's a wafer-thin documint.
sivakrytos: you might have previously noticed that the bureau's security standards (of all sorts of things!) are...not really best practices
johnalogue: @JadedCynic Concrete *feels* permanent but isn't
e_bloc: although I would assume anyone who works in the building has TS, but definitely not need to know
EricTheOrange: wow, hateful
Easilycrazyhat: I too shot most of the camera's I encountered XD
Alahmnat: also don't worry about the environment, it'll be all better next time you visit
JadedCynic: I mean, it's accepted to be part of the Bureau's layout if we have a camera set up in there...
Mushbie: one of the rooms here has the best "easter egg"
e_bloc: Corgo1000 I cannot express enough how much I love that Cameron and Cori are playing this game which I love.
R2JL: Vital testing apparatus destroyed
Jay_Blanc: Every streamer I've watched play this game, misses *that* door and it's secrets. For some reason.
Mushbie: the sound studio
Foxmar320: The sound studio is great but with the music off we won't hear anything
felrender: I mean, it's ALSO for you
kusinohki: the safety of my bank account maybe...
grgriffin3: Yeah, the music being off is gonna make me real sad when we get to the Ashtray Maze
Foxmar320: Agreed
plummeting_sloth: now, the warning about not bringing your smart phone and credit cards in there, THAT"S for you
felrender: since said metal objects will take a straight line thru you to the very expensive donut
Alahmnat: IIRC from Paul's play-through the music still plays in the maze
Easilycrazyhat: @grgriffin3 That part actually isn't muted! Matt went through it and it still played
EricTheOrange: I like the telekenisis cuz then I don't have to aim as much
nyperold: If you have a metal object IN you...
Mushbie: @Foxmar320 is all music of or just the "copyrighted" stuff
grgriffin3: Oh thank god
VorlonScout: @grgriffin3 The music you are thinking of gets played regardless. Remedy owns the rights to it.
felrender: Yeah the music in the maze is stream safe
Foxmar320: All the copyrighted stuff is off
Jay_Blanc: All the *original* Music should play, because Ahti still sings his Tango.
ContingentCat: you actually can bring some amount of metal into MRIs they just have to know, Source: I've had an MRI with metal in my body
Mushbie: then the song is still there
CMDRNuffin: PSA: do not try to bodyblock RPGs
Jay_Blanc: The Sound Studio's Music is *very* Original.
johnalogue: it's okay, it was like a weird magic RPG
2Flower: Youtube blocks it, but not Twitch?
Easilycrazyhat: Wait, are we doing a Talking Sim/PiF for Control?
grgriffin3: Well, he did it
JadedCynic: @Easilycrazyhat well, there's the difference between what Auto-tagging content algorithms will target, and what the devs THINK will get flagged...
Foxmar320: Easilycrazyhat sure are
felrender: iirc any song Poets Of The Fall recorded for the game specifically is cleared?

GamesAndInk: That "TONK!" sound as an ashtray hits a person's skull and doesn't really change its velocity is quite satisfying.
better_seasons: I'm just checking the music there
TheMerricat: oh crap Chat is this room the one I think it is The one we come back to later?
felrender: I still absolutely love that the TK will let you just wrench off a chunk of The Oldest House to throw at people
Jay_Blanc: This guy was having a bad day at work. And *then* the Hiss arrived.
2Flower: It's just a little airborne! It's still good!
JadedCynic: Cam: I feel you could say anything and just append it with "Director's Orders" like hitting a hiss-goon with a heavy ash tray "No smoking; Director's Orders." B)

Alahmnat: oh hey, it's that thing
Easilycrazyhat: Aww, it's waving hello
felrender: It can double as a Psychonauts background character cosplay
codatski: Cam. I have a friend who lives for those kinds of sales, and as a friend, I requested he get movers and not have his friends help him move. That stuff is WAY too heavy
grgriffin3: Not a disturbing thing at all!

Alahmnat: they do
JadedCynic: PC?
kusinohki: jesse - the face that blocked 1000 rockets
Alahmnat: yeah, PC but with controller
atinyspacemarine: grabbing the missiles is important
Easilycrazyhat: Nope
VorlonScout: Grabbing rockets is a bit tricky, regardless of platform. Probably by design...
Alahmnat: they have to be in a certain range
JadedCynic: thank you for checkpointing that, Remedy <3
Easilycrazyhat: Hmm, I never had a whole lot of trouble grabbing rockets on PC. It seemed to prioritize them for me.
kusinohki: checkpointing in this game is overall rather forgiving
JadedCynic: oh wwait, was that a spawner (or 'doorway' for bad guys?

Mushbie: Not really sure why people would recommend a controller for this game...
Easilycrazyhat: The Dots The Dots
sirspate: this game reminds me of Advent Rising.
JadedCynic: that's the big thing I always have - the analog sticks are great but MAN are they - wiat, WHAT?
JadedCynic: was that...
Mushbie: its likely fine, but It also plays fine with mouse and keyboard
JadedCynic: no, I think I'm better of not knowing
Alahmnat: I love the painting wobbling in the background
Kaorti: the mouse controls are *weird*
johnalogue: Tell her you're the new director ffs
Alahmnat: everybody seems to kind of already know
JadedCynic: Ah, yes - Jesse is a Protag that speaks for the player :D
Mushbie: @Kaorti really? I didn't noticed. must be a taste thing
grgriffin3: Pls feed me your dots of life
VorlonScout: I generally tend to prefer M&K, but for this... I don't know, there are so many different action controls that some of them have to get awkward keyboard assignments.
JadedCynic: mmmm, head cheese
plummeting_sloth: mmm... brain slices. A local delicacy
natedesuka: Using the Control point gives you full life btw
grgriffin3: Side mission!
VorlonScout: And for most things the controller aim assist is pretty good.
CAKHost: Adam?
RomanGoro: I still feel like the combat is the least interesting thing on this game, tends to be something to separate one cool bit of story from the next
RomanGoro: Of course there's a couple very awesome encounters too
VorlonScout: (The training course is an exception, because it doesn't consider the targets "enemies" and therefore doesn't give you any assist at all.)
JadedCynic: oh right a Control Point is our 'campfire' analogue
JadedCynic: yay, the got the harnesses
johnalogue: it sounds like she recognized your last name, sooo
ContingentCat: they're fine
Easilycrazyhat: They're just kind of...there...
Kaorti: sniping with the pistol is hard, but pistols aren't really good for sniping anyway.
grgriffin3: Yes they do
JadedCynic: well, there's not much point yet - we can't free them, and at least they're out of the way
Easilycrazyhat: You could "take care" of them yourself if you really wanted to >>>
Rhynerd: Yep. Standard FBC weapon is a Lewis gun.
ContingentCat: what a big boy
Creideiki_SE: Yes. It is a Lewis gun. It is very strange.
SquareDotCube: yeah, the FBC's arsenal is kind of... everywhere
RandomTrivia: They have a Luck & Probability department? Huh, what are the odds.
Juliamon: That fish...
vellebastet: Fish!
Angnor33: Biog Billy Bass!
razgriz792: FISH
TehAmelie: that's a big ass bass
johnalogue: odd choice to use a lewis gun, which would still be pretty iconic
plummeting_sloth: soldier, you stand aside from this fish this instant
Alahmnat: 4-leaf clover
JadedCynic: yeah, that's totally a water-cooled Lewis Gun - the heavy 'barrel' is a sheath that circulates water over the actual barrel for cooling
Rhynerd: How is this fish not an object of power?
kusinohki: @RandomTrivia booooooo!
Angnor33: ^^
VorlonScout: @RandomTrivia The odds are precisely [REDACTED].
JadedCynic: @RandomTrivia lrrFRUMP
RandomTrivia skitters away
johnalogue: @JadedCynic sounds unreasonably heavy for standing around with
razgriz792: Is she one of the founders of MArshal carter and dark?
JadedCynic: you seem to think this is the FIRST time they've handled stuff like this
Creideiki_SE: @JadedCynic Nah, the Lewis is air cooled. The jacket is a bunch of fins and clever aerodynamics to pull air through.
johnalogue: she could know where we can look for Shaun!
plummeting_sloth: Rangers lead the way... behind that lady
ContingentCat: !helm
LRRbot: Respect THE HELM.
JadedCynic: uh, don't leave it like that
Easilycrazyhat: These interactibles will matter later
e_bloc: you joke but that is actually the reason
grgriffin3: Yeah, these all tie into something optional you can do later
Mushbie: this puzzle gives the worst/best costume
RomanGoro: I like that luck is green
Kaorti: this area is worth coming back to late game
plummeting_sloth: dammit, now we need a mop for all the luck you spilled
nyperold: Jesse, they have standard procedures for when bits of the building move around. If someone is fazed, you know he's the new guy.
kusinohki: you spilled luck on the floor. now clean it up
TehAmelie: fire, water, air, bullet: long ago the four elements lived in harmony
Tehbeard: So you're just running off after spilling all that luck on the desk/floor?
e_bloc: that is actually why you hang horseshoes with the arc at the bottom
grgriffin3: Soothing
felrender: it's a v satisfying noise
Kaorti: OH knocking on wood!
e_bloc: according to superstition
Kaorti: I get it now!
Easilycrazyhat: Oh, I never noticed the cradles bonk the items. huh.
JadedCynic: wait, if it's hitting the statue, doesn't it....lose energy...
RandomTrivia: A Newton's Cradle is a very powerful relaxant
felrender: Maneki Neko!
JadedCynic: the luck cat
plummeting_sloth: *activated luck cat with back of fist*

Rhynerd: I hope that ranger wasn’t suggesting that the cat steals your soul
vellebastet: Love
vellebastet: lrrHEART
InkyGhoast: maneki neko!
vrulg: maybe it has a tiny motor
LordZarano: "The luck falls out" is actually the genuine superstition for lucky horseshoes, yes
johnalogue: @JadedCynic I...may have misread the first letter
TheMerricat: for people who are angry at the fish isnt an object of power....
Easilycrazyhat: Most things in this building shouldn't
JadedCynic: okay, have we gotten any explanation for why Jesse has a tic of rubbing her right shoulder?
TehAmelie: it it just me or is it powerfully weird this place has a luck department
2Flower: Long lady, in this house, we obey the laws of thermodynamics!
CleeKru: so this IS a dream
JadedCynic: that doesn't sound worrying
RandomTrivia: It would be exceptionally lucky for the air pressure to be perfectly arranged to keep pushing the Cradle
Easilycrazyhat: @JadedCynic My take is that she's not used to carrying the weapon
Alahmnat: I think it's completely reasonable to have a group researching luck
Alahmnat: given everything else is apparently real too, hehe
JadedCynic: ^^^
TehAmelie: too real
grgriffin3: The Ritual Division just sounds like a nice and happy place to work
JadedCynic: I'm with Alahmnat
CleeKru: RITUAL DIVISION is very ominous
Rhynerd: Orange healthbar means that this individual should not be living
niccus: when you mitose for the morning
TheThirdTail: Hmm, I remember long division, but I think I missed out on ritual division in my maths courses
Alahmnat: lol Cam
plummeting_sloth: Ritual Division was my Joy Division Black Metal cover band
johnalogue: I'd want to research luck too in this context
polarscribe: @felrender The graphic design on this game is *chef's kiss*
kusinohki: I should work in the ritual division. I find comfort in routine
felrender: I love how the Orbs just skedaddle
TehAmelie: ma'am you may approach the BENCH
Rhynerd: Lights out for that guy

JadedCynic: well, that's not easy to figure out with the helmets and facemasks (don't shoot untill you see the glow of their eyes?
johnalogue: you threw a projectile at them, but then they mist
grgriffin3: I think like 3 of them?
polarscribe: I'm gonna have to reinstall this and go for another playthrough. So good.
Tehbeard: "did any of theme live"... well several of them used to..
Rhynerd: Wave 2
JadedCynic: good news, there's no survivors to have to apologise to
JadedCynic: this is like the security chief we dealt with back at the reactor
nyperold: Parakinesiology Chief... Lewis? Like the gun?
kusinohki: does anyone ever collect the bodies and/or HREs??
AlphaHelixNZ: I really love the percussion here.
Alahmnat: this game *definitely* has a "last chance 1 HP" limit break on big hits
JadedCynic: @nyperold puppet_monkey_realisation.gif
TehAmelie: i love the absolute hate for all solid objects of our dash
johnalogue: the gun just does *nothing* right now
Invitare: isn't it lampshade?
TehAmelie: something something post "first"
Alahmnat: gun is pants against shields
ZethRuss: mod inventory full
Kaorti: looks like the loot tank is full
Rhynerd: How does one figuratribly lamppost somebody?
JadedCynic: time to spend some upgrades and or mods?
LordZarano: I know of "lampshading" but not lampposting
Alahmnat: I shall acquire pizza
JadedCynic: mmm, time for dessert - just ate supper watching you :)
TehAmelie: more discontent
wiggins: oh, is Cameron playing Control again?
TehAmelie: more like still
lirazel64: @wiggins Yep!
wiggins: well, yeah, though I had thought the previous stream was a one-off
RomanGoro: No, they're going long term according to Cori
VorlonScout: Hi Matt!
JadedCynic: wow @Rhynerd even urban dictionary doesn't have much for lamppost/lamp post: mostly ordinary definitions of the actual object, and then aa couple of it used as a pejorative noun(?) "Alan, you're such a lamp post!"
TheMerricat: I have a feeling cam meant gadlighting
TheMerricat: gaslighting even
TehAmelie: there's a whole lot to do in this game. i wonder if we'll even finish it
Juliamon: Gaslighting or lampshading
lirazel64: @kusinohki Yeah, can you imagine what this place *smells* like?
TehAmelie: for sketchy definitions of "we"
DeM0nFiRe: There's no audio on the stream right now, right?
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat maybe....like that old joke of the shop teacher asking a student "what's the difference between a screw, a nail and a bolt?" and the smart alec replies "maybe it's because I've never bolted anyone?"
TehAmelie: <Ralph Wiggum voice> chat's helping!
TheMerricat: none for me

TheMerricat: @jadedcynic I'm more sleepy than I thought it took me way too long to realize the punchline there :D
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat sorry :)
vellebastet: oh hi
TheAinMAP: katesAir
JadedCynic: oh wait, I was thinking James was streaming extra long for Mine O'Clock - did he squeeze in his last PiF with funko and wheeler yet? or is that tonight after Let's Nope?
DeM0nFiRe: Wait we're travelling now? Ah crap I didnt pack a suitcase
Easilycrazyhat: Sneaky Ian in the background
TehAmelie: howdy pard's
JadedCynic: maybe MOAR health? ;)
TheMerricat: I think that's tonight
Alahmnat: good idea
VorlonScout: Yeah, if you're leaning on throw, more Energy is good
kusinohki: moar vit!
TehAmelie: that's a contraction of pardners, not a wrong apostrophe
Easilycrazyhat: Shield has a nice secondary power
JadedCynic: think of all the energy expended...that'd tire people
VorlonScout: And eventually you'll want to have enough Energy to yeet the entire man.
vellebastet: sykLaugh
JadedCynic: but are we just being a conduit for a power somewhere else?
TheWriterAleph: glug glug
GamesAndInk: One of her telepathic powers is simply teleporting entire cakes into her stomach constantly
JadedCynic: @GamesAndInk oh right
niccus: she just carries logs of fondant
Tehbeard: Caloric intake was a thing in the mass effect lore for biotics, wasn't it?
vellebastet: Like the Flash?
ContingentCat: So many eggs
kusinohki: we're literally in a building where the laws of physics are ... fluid
ContingentCat: like Gaston level eggs
Kaorti: real answer, I'm pretty sure she uses external power via her bound items.
TehAmelie: in the reactor cooling room i'd launch forklifts straight up like 50 meters at levitating hisses. . .
DeM0nFiRe: Ah so you successfully blocked it out, neat
GhostValv: D:
Alahmnat: roflmao
LordZarano: People who climb Everest have to eat sticks of butter to get enough energy
ContingentCat: I'm so glad I wasn't eating during that part
TheAinMAP: Oh.
nyperold: Crisco is probably too dangerous around this building.
satyropodobny: oh, that was Shadow Cam probably then
Alahmnat: that Panalysts was *wild*
johnalogue: Yeaaah, it's definitely external energy
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, smash shield is fun
JadedCynic: her pockets are filled with Clif bars
johnalogue: Panalysts returned more powerful than ever
Kaorti: loot tank?
TehAmelie: butter is a very portable form of calories
Rhynerd: I have a feeling your brain did not want any responsibility for those words and campaigned to forget you ever said those things as a result.
Easilycrazyhat: That's...a duck...
JadedCynic: wait, is Evil Cam back, do I gotta cross the coutnry to do another containment ritual?
Mushbie: IMO health is best, because you can't forget to use it
plummeting_sloth: it gets handy when you can launch the shield at other folks at higher levels
Kaorti: forgot to empty out the mod storage
SentientRatKing: Energy is useful. If no one has mentioned it a small trick for using throw is to just double tap the button. It flings stuff immediately and can be useful for the floaty TK enemies that dodge otherwise. Also for rapid fire throwing
niccus: it needs to be like a really wet tres leches
johnalogue: there are fats too
Tangsm: Carrot cake is just a no go.
sivakrytos: so you just want her to be guzzling cocacola?
JadedCynic: just Power Ade™
Easilycrazyhat: She also has some unknown energy being tagging along. Perhaps that's fueling her energy expenditure?
satyropodobny: it's brain power. Vast amounts of glucose are the way
johnalogue: @Tangsm Carrot cake is *always* a no-go
VorlonScout: Seconding what SentientRatKing says -- some of the floaty enemies will fail to dodge if you grab and throw really fast.
Rhynerd: I mean, mountain climbers basically eat sticks of butter as rations, according to an XKCD What If?
niccus: a contigo full of maple syrup
Alahmnat: this is actually my *least* favorite element of the game, having to keep up with your mod inventory
JadedCynic: Jesse's got a constant Power Ade™ drip from a flat carrying pack under her jacket
plummeting_sloth: oh yeah, heads up CAmeron. this is the part of the game where it just starts throwing "kill some dudes" side quests at you, and if you follow them all you will never get anywhere
RandomTrivia: "Fill this Jesse with cream"?
GamesAndInk: She has the 2:1 simple syrup from a bar in her pocket, with an IV tube going directly into her bloodstream
SpacePotato01: Her backpack is just a bag of gravy connected to an IV going into her.
Tangsm: You just hear the spray whip sound mid-fight and think, "Oh no, she's reloading..."
SpacePotato01: she should have a backpack
VorlonScout: @Alahmnat Agreed. At a certain point I just had to tell myself "no, just blindly delete the lowest level of mods and stop thinking about it"
Rhynerd: Maybe Jesse is just eating sticks of butter.
TehAmelie: energy legs!
Alahmnat: you have a second slot for a personal mod now too
CMDRNuffin: She just drinks pure liquid glucose.
JadedCynic: I'm so glad that generations past mine have kept Whippets as a thing - I worried it'd die out...
Easilycrazyhat: If only you had other gun modes ;)
Kaorti: there's a 2nd personal mod slot open too
LordZarano: So THAT's why corn syrup is subsidised in the US. To make sure there's always enough energy for Jesse
Rhynerd: “The director needs your corn syrup.”
JadedCynic: @LordZarano shhhh, don't make me send you to the Oldest House to forget that
SentientRatKing: recovery speed is good
Alahmnat: I'd go launch efficiency personally, given how much stuff you yeet
TehAmelie: hmm, does heroin have a lot of calories?
johnalogue: @JadedCynic why would you want that to continue?
plummeting_sloth: the little blue triangles are actually tinny Russian First STrike Bars
TehAmelie: thinking of Pawnee's sweetums factory that started out with heroin candies
CMDRNuffin: Corn syrup has mostly fructose which has to converted to fat first. And then to different fat.
SentientRatKing: I also used throw efficiency which just lets you TK concrete all day long at high levels
JadedCynic: welp, containment's been broken - secret's out...man I hate explaining my failures to my supervisor...
Creideiki_SE: We should probably craft some new guns as well.
Rhynerd: There are three parts to Jesse Faden: Corn, G U N, and triangle friend.
JadedCynic: well, new forms for The Gun
johnalogue: @TehAmelie pretty sure heroin literally burns fat tissue
Kaorti: any point
Alahmnat: only unique thing at the main point is outfits
plummeting_sloth: yeah, you might like Shatter. Less precise
Kaorti: it's board missions and outfits at the main point
JadedCynic: scanable on left
SentientRatKing: Does cam want to know what the new guns are as the names are a bit... vague
Alahmnat: hooray more awful opsec
Easilycrazyhat: Board missions are everywhere too
Kaorti: pierce would help at range, and spin is fun.
Kaorti: shatter is good and reliable
VorlonScout: I kind of hated these.
TehAmelie: who doesn't like a scattergun?
SentientRatKing: Also agree that shatter is a good choice
Easilycrazyhat: That line
Tehbeard: I feel like i'm missing something..
TheWriterAleph: OffByOne
JadedCynic: sergeOffByOne
amythist: Brain's not here today man, all you got is Spleen today
JadedCynic: skipping the scannables?
Kaorti: this is a drawing of a hypercube right?

Kaorti: same here
vellebastet: oh this
Easilycrazyhat: it's not *that* bad. Just gotta pay attention
R2JL: When holding an object you can press X to put it down gently
TehAmelie: time to rub all the things on other things!
gravity_pike: to me, this puzzle was satisfying to figure out
JadedCynic: and in here I'm expecting all the interactables to be puzzle-related
TheMerricat: I like how she says we in the stands in the middle of the room unmoving
JadedCynic: Marshall, that's what I just said in my Inner Monologue, thank you very much!
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat the gamer "we"
Easilycrazyhat: What *is* the difference?
Easilycrazyhat: ;)
johnalogue: is *this* your card?
codatski: Cam I recommend paper and pencil for this puzzle
SentientRatKing: Huh I blanked this puzzle in my memory as well... weird and fitting
TehAmelie: if it was me i'd simply, nah i've got nothing
kusinohki: paper and pencil? I suggest screen shots and a walkthrough! :P
JadedCynic: nah, it's just remembering patterns
VorlonScout: I have blanked out all memory of this puzzle as well, except that a vague sense that I was on the verge of flipping tables.
DeM0nFiRe: If it was me, I would simply put it in the square hole
VorlonScout: *except for
JadedCynic: so now it's just three cards left, not five
Alahmnat: Marshall's "hints" are probably the worst part of this puzzle :P
nyperold: Thanks, Marshall.
Easilycrazyhat: People really hate this puzzle, huh? XD I found it so straightforward
JadedCynic: okay, did he mean they were switchable or did he just decide to make a smliey?
Too_Many_Knives: It's the unhelpful NPC help that makes this puzzle annoying
Alahmnat: I appreciate that Cam now knows two characters named Marshall
Kaorti: I found these hints both patronizing and useless
CAKHost: Is that a smilely face?
kusinohki: where's the "yell at marshall to solve it" button?
CAKHost: Or am I just seeing that
VorlonScout: @Too_Many_Knives That and a whole lot of running back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and...
VorlonScout: You're a professional.
Easilycrazyhat: You're a Pro Gamer, Cam
Henshini: UnarmedOracleMLG
Kaorti: literally pro
Kipstar: where's the "I'm the Director, you do this!" button?
Too_Many_Knives: @VorlonScout I just worked it out on paper. Not much running around after getting all of the hints
Kaorti: maybe it weaponizes the iconic nature
Alahmnat: interesting that Polaris's glitter showed up there...
SentientRatKing: Isn't iconic the opposite of what they want though?
Skeletonman1100: I'm out of the loop. What is HRA?
somecall_metim: lewis gun would be good for the old house; older tech plays nicer
johnalogue: The Lewis gun is iconic and also *way too heavy to use like a rifle*
TehAmelie: this feels like the kind of lab where you have like a 50% chance to accidentally set off a proton beam through your head at any time
plummeting_sloth: which is kinda odd, because how everything else in the Bureau is deliberately generic
Henshini: It's probably the most sophisticated gun that still works in teh building/doesn't cause shifts
JadedCynic: @Kaorti oh you mean Marshall's 'barks' - they're clearly not advice or hints (a non puzzle related person trying to look at a puzzle-related person's notes)
Alahmnat: HRA = Hedron Resonance Amplifier
kusinohki: @Skeletonman1100 HRA s are the devices that protect people from the hiss
Easilycrazyhat: @SentientRatKing Maybe in this case Iconic makes it more effective? *shrug*
Skeletonman1100: ok.
Kaorti: hedron resonance counteracts hiss resonanace
JadedCynic: I mean, character conversation isn't ALWAYS hints or advice...
TehAmelie: the hedrons are powerfully aligned
Alahmnat: Marshall is kind of awesome
johnalogue: "don't call me director, call me Jesse" "I will half obey you not-director"
SentientRatKing: @Easilycrazyhat could be also it's a very early machine gun design so something something uncomplicated non modern design just occurred to me for the first time that otherwise iconic is bad in the bureau
Easilycrazyhat: @SentientRatKing Could be
ashteranic: What did he know, and when did he know it
Kaorti: Marshall's interjections are pretty clearly intended to be hints in the gameplay sense. Marshall wasn't being patronizing, but the designers were.
JadedCynic: oh right, the Black Rock mining stuff off of the reactor
JadedCynic: yeah, bomber jacket
aerobeing: And her gun.
Kaorti: that's an amazing coat.
TehAmelie: are we going to be threshold kids now?
plummeting_sloth: I mean... time kinda works strangely in here
Kaorti: I would love that coat.
aerobeing: @Kaorti It looks warm.

vellebastet: lrrHEART
theinvisiblevoice: thanks for the gift sub ^_^
SentientRatKing: @Easilycrazyhat the more likely and unfun answer is the artists liked the design and felt it matched the rest of the aesthetic as well as like Cam said Marshal's design
gravity_pike: it lets you know where you're going, as a player
johnalogue: @aerobeing the outfit looks warm but the environment looks cold
Kaorti: @aerobeing and soft, and tight in the right ways while still letting you move.
Alahmnat: btw, there's a *really* cool fansong about Control written by The Suspendium (minor spoilers?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6gGE9kxe1M
Mistborn83: Wait black rock like on LOST?
aerobeing: @johnalogue Yes.
Skeletonman1100: Okay. Also since I am ootl what is the hiss?
Mushbie: has Cam found out what the powers the NCO?
AlphaHelixNZ: Also HRAs are presumably a direct allusion to SRAs (Scranton Reality Anchors) from the SCP Foundation.
ZethRuss: go central to upgrade ?
Mistborn83: Has to be a connection to the Island
plummeting_sloth: ah, this is that Black Rock Candy mountain I've been hearing about
Alahmnat: the hiss is the invasive force that has taken over the Bureau's personnel
Kaorti: @Mushbie no, no spoilers please :-)
kusinohki: @Skeletonman1100 hiss is the name jesse gave the bad guys possessing ppl
JadedCynic: I mean @SentientRatKing I could easily work up fanfic that'd build the backstory lore of the FBC working on this place back since the 19th century :)
JadedCynic: o7
TehAmelie: i feel like the HRAs will turn out to be like the black boxes in Annihilation
Easilycrazyhat: @SentientRatKing Possibly, but they clearly put quite a lot of work into keeping the world consistent. I'd bet there's an explanation in team, but just not laid out in the game.
Mushbie: @kaorti oh I would never say it.
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie that reference goes over my head, not having consumed that media lrrAWW
Alahmnat: the NSC reactor always throws me because around here that stands for "North Spokane Corridor"

Easilycrazyhat: Construct is a verb in this case, Cam
codatski: No love for health Cam?
TehAmelie: nyah nyah (i wanted to avoid spoiling it really)
JadedCynic: spin - smg, shatter - shotty, pierce - snipe
johnalogue: sniper pistol, really
kusinohki: I've watched other streamers never learn how to zoom either...
JadedCynic: @codatski cam likes hard mode it seams
aerobeing: That sounds like playing the game in a harder way.
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie well, your secret is safe from me :D
Mushbie: charge, slanade gruncher
Alahmnat: wait is there a zoom that isn't just right-click?
codatski: @jadedcynic That is certainly valid, but there will be some sections that will frustrate him
aerobeing: So, they use Zoom for their online meetings in Department of Control? Kappa
TehAmelie: old school Alexisms
Mushbie: that's an Alex-ism
ThorSokar: you have described this whole game

Easilycrazyhat: There's a reason this thing only holds 2 shots XD
AlphaHelixNZ: Snifer riple got me so hard the first time I heard it.
nyperold: I've heard of rail shooters, but...
JadedCynic: SURPRISE!
Kaorti: i bulli u
plummeting_sloth: that was a brave brave man
aerobeing: @Alahmnat It's not a fact that those two are not connected.
johnalogue: when you have the extremely powerful sniper gun and someone pushes you from behind
TehAmelie: AlphaHelixNZ did you need the hopsital?
plummeting_sloth: WAS a brave brave man
JadedCynic: "Have Coffee Break"
LordZarano: Get HYDRATED!
johkmil: That was a real watercooler moment
Kaorti: that man learned
armoredscarves: "Why beep noise?" instnt exmplosion screen goes dark bloody red
JadedCynic: I love that they can tell when you're aiming at them and then they hide (I'm gonna hate it when *I* play, but...
Makrosian_Tae: Black Rock Galactic
TehAmelie: whoever said "pain is the great teacher" clearly didn't consider the explodo
Alahmnat: I think using bows in Destiny prepared me to be much better at Pierce than Paul was, hehe
Kaorti: to be fair, that wa a different noise
AlphaHelixNZ: @tehamelie I may have done. 😂
Easilycrazyhat: Learning!
JadedCynic: *ahem*
satyropodobny: sniper rifle beats shotgun at close quarters, who knew?
JadedCynic: @satyropodobny well, if you're patient...
Kaorti: *magic* sniper rifle
Alahmnat: the Firebreak looks RAD.
ThorSokar: Thwamps
Skeletonman1100: Thwomps
gravity_pike: something i picked up from the speedrun of this game is that the gun reloads A Lot quicker if you leave 1 round in the chamber
johnalogue: leap of faaaaith!
SentientRatKing: @Easilycrazyhat true and it could easily have an internal logic that makes sense. It was more of a "oh huh that's a little odd" moment for me rather than "Well that breaks all the rules" thing. But since it's a small detail that I didn't even notice in my playthrough. I can also see the visual design guys fudging the logic a touch because they like it. Mainly saying that I think both are possible design decisions.
Easilycrazyhat: I wonder if we should go down lrrBEEJ
Mister_BlueSky: And the baby ones were "Thwimps". :D
plummeting_sloth: Para reality thomps
vellebastet: Grooos
wiggins: you can totally make it
Foxmar320: That sounds like somthing I would say
iris_of_ether: 1-800- DUNT
Easilycrazyhat: @SentientRatKing All fair points :)
Makrosian_Tae: Ohhh

gravity_pike: but, no, this is for later.

vellebastet: @foxmar320 sykLaugh
Foxmar320: lol
Alahmnat: I'm fairly certain that's not supposed to work
TehAmelie: like threewmp
johkmil: I don’t think you were supposed to be able to do that.
wiggins: I plead the fifth
plummeting_sloth: that... wasn't supposed to work
Easilycrazyhat: How dare, wiggins
JadedCynic: lrrFRUMP

johnalogue: that's amazing
RandomTrivia: @wiggins I believe that counts as a Wiggins Solution?
Kaorti: matt is patches?
SentientRatKing: @Easilycrazyhat now I want the story behind why they use maxim guns though. That sounds like a fun document to read.
dooppatrol: thespi22Dab
Foxmar320: See if we take Matt raiding now
Easilycrazyhat: But can you get back?
Foxmar320: :P
CleeKru: * lrrFRUMP
Stormthius: Kappa
RandomTrivia: Judging by BotW
JadedCynic: how DARE you insist on surviving, Cam! LUL
Easilycrazyhat: @SentientRatKing Same! I love the inner lore in this world.
PMAvers: Cam: "Oh, I lived. *cocks gun, ends transmission*"
RandomTrivia: jlrrFall
TehAmelie: holy cats, Threewmp would be such a great name for a bigger Thwomp. i bet they already used it but i still made it up now
johnalogue: @SentientRatKing Maxim guns? Don't think they can carry *those*
shurtal: tried to buy a ps5 today, got all the way to putting in my credit card info and it failed.... yay
kusinohki: mopped the floor with him
TehAmelie: a clean death
TheWriterAleph: a clean kill
ThorSokar: This is totally a place where "computer, Arch!" would work, but only in 1 room
TehAmelie: i'll see myself ouy
johkmil: Is it a Lewis gun?
JadedCynic: Nice one @TehAmelie @TheWriterAleph
krorkle: Mawp.
LegionofLashes: go clean up! Have a seat! I need to vent! the callout possibilities are endless regarding the telekenisis
Easilycrazyhat: *Cori has left the chat*
johnalogue: probably shouldn't have been allowed through that checkpoint given the giant gun
SentientRatKing: @johnalogue my bad Lewis guns
CMDRNuffin: It's probably the big red button that says "DO NOT PRESS"
JadedCynic: hmmmm, that doesn't look right
johnalogue: @SentientRatKing Maxim guns, of course, would be even MORE iconic
Easilycrazyhat: Hope those weren't important
JadedCynic: do turbines regularly spew out sparks?
Alahmnat: they *shouldn't*
johnalogue: sure hope that's not how people traverse this hall normally
SentientRatKing: @johnalogue a bit comical to see carried around like rifles though
Foxmar320: lol
RandomTrivia: LUL
Makrosian_Tae: Cam has slow fall right?
aerobeing: @johkmil Google says yes.
Alahmnat: rofl
JadedCynic: SeemsGood
armoredscarves: I see gravity is in effect
Easilycrazyhat: This is fine
JadedCynic: cam found the fast way down
RandomTrivia: Hahahahahahaha
Foxmar320: Thats the last sound you make as you die
TheMerricat: Cam is always going for the straightforward route
ThorSokar: Already knew that, sorry
Easilycrazyhat: Have you heard Adam scream, though?
vellebastet: sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh sykLaugh
aerobeing: LUL
johkmil: No one saw that.
bmac_oceanusborealis: no no, that is not going to be cliped and added to some sort of complinmation
johnalogue: how else would cam scream?
ggodopaste: lrrFINE lrrHERE
vellebastet: OMG
TehAmelie: we'll have to invent audible gravestones for those last words
Easilycrazyhat: Puzzle solved
nyperold: Jesse's a good dancer. She can really tear up the floor.
JadedCynic: props to the game for making an in-game fall feel so realistic as to induce fear in the player tho
JadedCynic: Sure Cam - you just took a short cut
SentientRatKing: @johnalogue now that I'm thinking of it seeing someone trying to turn the crank while shouldering one would be really funny
Easilycrazyhat: Yes...changing...
sivakrytos: there's probably a subset of developers who love seeing players play like this and a subset who cannot stand it
Foxmar320: lol
johnalogue: @SentientRatKing They'd need an assistant crouching next to them
aerobeing: Yeah. Walls moving all the time...
kusinohki: I've always wondered, how do ppl without TK put in the batteries?
TehAmelie: in large teams probably
Foxmar320: :D
ThorSokar: seems like the thing to do
armoredscarves: how is it having a gravity gun for a hand, if i may ask?
kusinohki: I heard a machine go ping
CleeKru: lrrHERE
Kaorti: uhoh
ThorSokar: *Loony Tunes Music Plays*
Easilycrazyhat: We've found a gravitational threshold.
Kaorti: parkour!
johnalogue: just a little reality warping
Kaorti: as a treat
Easilycrazyhat: yup!
Foxmar320: yep
Sogheim: I think this area should have been bigger
gravity_pike: who lives behind the other doors? 🤔
aerobeing: To the bored room.
Easilycrazyhat: Nice looking room
JadedCynic: @Easilycrazyhat i mean, with all the laws of universe being broken, a clipping glitch like that could be handwaved as an in-game irregularity :D
MicroManagingMusician: hey cameron i have been a fan for a while but this is my first non vod i have found, thanks for the years of good content
ThorSokar: not bad for a Motel
johnalogue: the law of three can only apply *more* in this space
TheExactSame subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 49 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheExactSame! (Today's storm count: 72)
krorkle: It’s different, anyway.
JadedCynic: yeah ring the bell - rule of three
Alahmnat: I really appreciate that they kept the motel from getting stale by *not* recycling the exact same puzzle every time
SoldieroFortune: !roll
Easilycrazyhat: @JadedCynic I was thinking that all bugs could be explained in-game, too, hah. Nice feature of a world like this.
krorkle: Behind the door?
JadedCynic: ah, sound sting
Kaorti: success noise
LegionofLashes: third door!
JadedCynic: is there MORE stuff to change AGAIN?
LordZarano: This is the second time we've been to the Oceanview Motel right?
ThorSokar: Observation puzzels
Alahmnat: @LordZarano yep
RandomTrivia: Suddenly, Hidden Object game!
Easilycrazyhat: You have a lot to keep track of, streaming an all
AlphaHelixNZ: Smrt!
JadedCynic: I mean, there was nothing visible of the 3rd door opening from the front desk...
TheExactSame: I'm sorry, your son has failed Highlights magazine
TheExactSame: hell need to repeat
Foxmar320: looks safe
Alahmnat: shortcut
JadedCynic: no, you were right the first time - the drawbridge is a puzzle
johnalogue: how many doors does this location need?
johkmil: There’s some serious security for this black rock.
johnalogue: it's not more secure against anything except brute force by having such thick rock
JadedCynic: geez, how many security levels ARE there?
Mushbie: you can break windows....
Easilycrazyhat: Then they shouldn't put tasty tasty lore in hidden corners of the game, Cori.
xerjen: Nooooo, not the coffe machine :(
RandomTrivia: That's going to make Monday mornings utterly miserable
Master_Gunner: who needs shield when you have GUN
kusinohki: I forget if there's a coffee machine altered item...
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
cmdrud87: Table for one!
CMDRNuffin: Note: RPGs are not as cuddly as they look.
SentientRatKing: Hmm from a design standpoint maybe some of the difficulty comes from switching modes of thinking. I.E. most of the game being combat and traversal through space as well as some environmental interaction. Then you're solving puzzles that don't really match any of the skills or thinking you've been using. That's a very off the cuff thought though so could easily be wrong.
Kaorti: or at least express
nyperold: "Time to STAMP you out!"
johnalogue: ooh we briefly had a friendly I think
Juliamon: something something airmail
ThorSokar: They took the regeneration upgrade early
JadedCynic: okay, I think the whole 'security LEVEL' thing could've been done better with area-based security passes; some of the senior staff seem to be limited in their access...
Angnor33: They have replaced their sense of self preservation with a psychic power generator.
shurtal: But what if gun become paper weight?
accountmadeforants: They're full of healthy bits, that makes them very healthy
polarscribe: what if we punched the floor
Kaorti: this is his sector
johnalogue: @JadedCynic Role-based access control is good security
itsybitsystreams: Overload champions? In my videogame? It's more likely than you think
ghyllnox: I like that you still take the stairs like a normal person
JadedCynic: @SentientRatKing yeah, I'm lucky that I like both shooters and puzzlers
kusinohki: "death disaster and immenent distruction? must be Tue"
JadedCynic: yeah, I knew I liked Arish
johkmil: There must be hundreds of dead federal agents at this point. This will be difficult to cover up.
aerobeing: @JadedCynic They are in lockdown, as well, right now.
Easilycrazyhat: I don't really see it as unfun, personally. A game shouldn't have a "skeleton key" weapon that works on everything. Adapting to different enemies weaknesses and strengths makes fighting more than just smashing through enemies.
VorlonScout: Arish is a man who knows he is *not* a protagonist.
Alephred: "You don't have to be crazy to work here .. but eventually will be!"
CleeKru: is it possible to have dialog a little louder? (is it just me?)
aerobeing: Or at least were.
TheMerricat: Arish is Barney reincarnated
Alahmnat: there are remarkably few *unlikeable* people in this game
RandomTrivia: In-game dialogue *IS* a bit quiet
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat .....reviews....crap, you're right...
lirazel64: Don we ever look at the scannables?
JadedCynic: did we have more problems with The Clog?
Kaorti: that's a big mess, even by hiss standards
nyperold: "The good news is, it's just down the hall. The bad news is, 'down' is a lot more literal than usual."
Alahmnat: I really really like that all of the signage in this building uses the US Highway Font
johnalogue: @Alahmnat it seems dangerous to be "unlikeable" in a building influenced so heavily by human perception
Easilycrazyhat: Spooky, sneaky hiss monster time.
Foxmar320: yup
Easilycrazyhat: It hits HARD
DeM0nFiRe: wow, instadeath
CleeKru: O.O
LegionofLashes: benginRip
Too_Many_Knives: Invisible baddies now
RandomTrivia: Welp
RandomTrivia: jlrrCoolgame
bmac_oceanusborealis: prophecy
grgriffin3: Ooh yeah, this thing is a real bastard
aerobeing: I remember this fight being hard.
Too_Many_Knives: lrrFINE
gravity_pike: I used the shotgun in this fight, which made it pretty straightforwards.
MicroManagingMusician: bug fan cameron happy to catch my fisrt stream
aerobeing: And a bit scary, I think.
VorlonScout: There are a couple of approaches that work against those things, but they're annoying regardless.
Alahmnat: *hides their "first try" trophy for this fight behind their back awkwardly*
Kaorti: smart
VorlonScout: Yeah, shielding right when they screech is a good plan
Easilycrazyhat: It's classic "video game 'invisible'"
Kaorti: right in the kisser!
JadedCynic: Aperature Science Turret Voice: "Where are you? There you are."
VorlonScout: (If you don't know where they are, anyway.)
Foxmar320: Get domed out :D
Kaorti: clong!
Too_Many_Knives: Gottem!
DeM0nFiRe: Nice
Foxmar320: Nice
Easilycrazyhat: @JadedCynic "Goodbye"
TheWriterAleph: kPOW
Kaorti: this isgreat
aerobeing: Nice.
Alahmnat: you can also still hit them when they're invisible
RandomTrivia: benginTry
VorlonScout: If you can survive their initial "HI I AM RIGHT HERE" attach you get a window of opportunity, at least.
CMDRNuffin: first try every time
Boon_33: Excellent slab work, is this mine o clock?
accountmadeforants: Aw, but Arish asked for you to put bullets into it, not rocks. Poor Arish. :(
SentientRatKing: @JadedCynic definitely helps having a knack for both. It just occurred to me how much of a sudden gear shift the puzzles are and how it's odd they don't use any of the skills or mechanics the game otherwise teaches you.
Too_Many_Knives: Next time we fight one with friends :)
nyperold: You know what would be great? Fighting more than one at once.
JadedCynic: Whale plaid, Cam - spotted the distortion really quick
JadedCynic: 665
JadedCynic: man, I like Darling :D
xerjen: Ba dum tsss
Alahmnat: he's such a dork and I love him
Neddy471: Narrator: They did not take that again.
Echo_Hotel: I really wish they would just pick one Y coordanate for the Jessy lines and one for everyone else all that jumping around is hard to read.
BusTed: seabatBRAIN
JadedCynic: so Black Rock is to 'paranatural stuff' the same way that lead is to 'ionizing radiaton'?
JadedCynic: cool
Neddy471: @JadedCynic Yes.
AlphaHelixNZ: I love how enthusiastic Darling is about everything.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I just want to hug Darling
Neddy471: "FOR SCIENCE!" seems to be his oeuvre - he's very much a mad scientist.
lirazel64: Do we ever look at the stuff we pick up, or does that take too long?
SentientRatKing: @Echo_Hotel was about to say that different colors would help to but then realized that might be useless for those who are colorblind if they weren't careful with color choice
episvont: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 13:49:22. lrrSPOT
episvont: hang on
episvont: thirteen hours?!
ContingentCat: dog years
SentientRatKing: @Echo_Hotel also misread your point so disregard as you see fit as color wouldn't help with tracking reading position. Sorry about that
ContingentCat: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:59:37.
TheMerricat: @lirazel64 in previous streams we have looked at the stuff we picked up there was a little bit of noise about we were spending a lot of time looking at the scannables I don't know if not looking at them as a conscious choice or if Cam's just in the game that much right now
episvont: lol
episvont: ok
episvont: I forgot that command did that
JadedCynic: !march
JadedCynic: !date
JadedCynic: !camp
MicroManagingMusician: this is the ecound control stream right?
JadedCynic: man, that's an old one
Alahmnat: third
GloriousLumi: Half of this game is the incredible lore, the other half is the insanely fun gunplay
JadedCynic: this is the third stream of Talking Sim of Cam & Cori playing CONTROL
ContingentCat: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: highly experienced furniture yeeters
episvont: was about to sleep anyway so I'll have to catch the vod
gsyhiap: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I always need healing.
Easilycrazyhat: @TheMerricat I feel like the collectibles are a huge part of the game, really. I hop Cam takes a look at them at least partially.
ContingentCat: wow on theme box
JadedCynic: @episvont rest well; we'll try to remember you in the chat :D
gsyhiap: !advice
LRRbot: Don't ask questions you aren't ready to get answered.
TheMerricat: fbc in a nutshell
RandomTrivia: Good advice LRRbot
GloriousLumi: It really is lol
CleeKru: that !secret... i feel that
JadedCynic: @ContingentCat didn't they have a Crossing The Streams or two of them all playing that 'moving company' game?
episvont: stay safe everybody
aerobeing: Whoever mentioned the Control song -- thanks. It's quite good.
TheMerricat: you too @episvont and have a good sleep
ContingentCat: @JadedCynic yeah I think that's what it's from, but still works for this too
RandomTrivia: They did, the game is called "Moving Out". I think this week's CTS is a little similar but IN S P A C E
aerobeing: @Easilycrazyhat I feel they certainly add a lot to understanding of the lore.
GloriousLumi: Control is one of those games I have played through multiple times just to make sure I collected all the stuffs. It's one of those games you find yourself thinking about when you aren't playing it.
SentientRatKing: I wonder if they could have included the lore more naturally rather than pages that had to be collected and read.
johnalogue: Darling seems present enough in recordings that we won't actually meet him in recognizable form in-game
Easilycrazyhat: Like that lvl 5 door there...
Robot_Bones: Now that you have his Key Blade
TheMerricat: @sentientratking they do, for primary lore.
JadedCynic: ugh, that's weird - I apparentl ylike to move the mouse to click on the chat box that I glide over the buttons at the bottom right of the stream window, so for like the 5th consecutive stream I happen to notice the tooltip for 'unsubscribe' is up O_o
sivakrytos: what's darling's doctoral degree in
RomanGoro: SentientRatKing probably, but this is also a large bureaucratic institution, so at least all the paperwork makes sense in-universe
Makrosian_Tae: Ohhh, does he know he can pick up the projector?
GloriousLumi: For the main story there is just enough exposition to leave you wanting more.
Blue_Anteater: @JadedCynic It's been happening to me too!
nyperold: It might be weird seeing Darling in-person, anyway.
JadedCynic: :D
Easilycrazyhat: XD Darling
Foxmar320: lol
Alahmnat: he's SUCH a dork
TheWriterAleph: dis fuggin guy
Alahmnat: and I love it
johnalogue: love this guy
AlphaHelixNZ: <3
Alahmnat: yeah I dunno where they're hiding the casino part @JadedCynic
nyperold: Either they leave him obviously live-action, like in these films, or convert him to the same style as the rest of the characters.
Echo_Hotel: Best character in the entire studio's portfolio
johnalogue: do we know that the oceanview has a physical location?
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat I mean I haven't played all the game, but it looks like we're in a very simple twelve-unit roadside motel?
Alahmnat: of course, depending on where it is, "and casino" can just mean "we have a slot machine in the bathroom"
GloriousLumi: How many Threshold Kids has Cam discovered?
TheMerricat: @johnalogue The very last time we were there someone was outside the building trying to get in
aerobeing: @Alahmnat I could argue that one of the options of "the casino" is just "will you or will you not get out of there? alive or sane?".
JadedCynic: @GloriousLumi not enough by his count
krorkle: There was a door in Darling’s office.
johnalogue: ohhh
Mushbie: @johnalogue well it's implied it has more than one
JadedCynic: @aerobeing ...see, that's kinda what I was starting to wonder about...
GloriousLumi: @JadedCynic Never enough if you ask me lol
johnalogue: @Mushbie the worst motel chain that's always out of rooms and locked for some reason
JadedCynic: hey,that bathroom break was NECESSARY dammit!
ContingentCat: just call it the scenic route
aerobeing: @JadedCynic But also with all the changing there could just be a door that there is a way to get to.
JadedCynic: ooo, yellow box
Mushbie: @johnalogue nono not a chain
ghyllnox: Cameron "Probably Fine" Lauder
Mushbie: the same motel has more than one location.
GloriousLumi: @aerobeing There is a front door. You just can't access it from the inside.... or the outside lol
Mushbie: maybe
Easilycrazyhat: Honestly, a lot of the more out-of-the-way stuff I found wasn't really worth it. Mostly materials you get just playing the game. One of the critiques I have of this game.
JadedCynic: "Don't like it - take it back!"
nyperold: As expected, that lamp only did light damage.
aerobeing: @GloriousLumi I mean a door to get to the casino part of the "Motel and casino"
SentientRatKing: Oh did cam ever experiment with controller sensitivity? Might help with any aim difficulties he has had
RandomTrivia: @nyperold *polite applause*
PMAvers: *cues up the theme from Big Shot*
JadedCynic: *when cam hit one trooper with a desk lamp* "How about a little light reading?"
TheMerricat: series of normal hits
saucemaster5000: jesse's superhero name is definitely "The Huckster"
ContingentCat: or a furry of blows if you're Dande
RandomTrivia: OH NO Cori
Easilycrazyhat: It's spreading D:

grgriffin3: Sorry Cori!
JadedCynic: Ooooo, feel better Cori <3
GhostValv: o7
GloriousLumi: @aerobeing Well, we know where the casino is, so as long as we aren't going through the light switch, we should be able to get there by car
Easilycrazyhat: Feel better Cori!
ContingentCat: lrrAWW feel better COri
SentientRatKing: Rest well Cori thanks for being here. Feel better

CleeKru: lrrHEART
Foxmar320: foxmarLOVE
DeM0nFiRe: I wouldn't even know how to hold a controller with my ear, that is really impressive
Easilycrazyhat: I wonder what it is about this game that triggers it. The wibblyness of the energy stuff?
johnalogue: fitting, as the ear is what determines your sense of balance
RomanGoro: But the problem is precisely playing it by inner ear, Cam
Foxmar320: Nice
Spluuga: I am back.. now with one less tooth..
JadedCynic: gesundheit Cameron
johnalogue: dammit we all made the same joke
JadedCynic: nice Agent Smith, there...
RandomTrivia: Welcome back Spluuga, or at least most of you! :D
gsyhiap: chat is a hivemind, johnalogue
Neddy471: I like and hard-core HATE the confusing layout of this place.
Spluuga: thank you
JadedCynic: oh right, I remember cori telling us that that's later
Too_Many_Knives: Exit only
CMDRNuffin: of course it's a bloody puzzle
AziraphalesShop: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:12:31.
Neddy471: Maybe through the fans?
krorkle: Visit Ahti?
Fracaswell: wasn't there an elevator in the power plant area?
Mushbie: yeah it's a return path
gravity_pike: I think the entrace to blackrock processing is in the main ring?
Neddy471: Visiting Ahti is always awesome.
JadedCynic: @Neddy471 the fans have grating over them
Foxmar320: Best bet is always follow the signs
Neddy471: @JadedCynic It's been so long since I played this.
johnalogue: @JadedCynic how much stronger is grating than railing?
JadedCynic: @gravity_pike we want the black rock quarry tho - we've been to Processing
Easilycrazyhat: There's a lvl 5 door you missed in the office that leads you onward.
GloriousLumi: Yeah, the signs are suuuuuper helpful in this game
Easilycrazyhat: the office past Arish
Foxmar320: Should be a sign around here that points to it
Neddy471: I LOVE the story behind the NSC Power Plant.
Mushbie: @neddy471 it's so good
Neddy471: It's a very much a "oh, well, that's not good." moment.
gravity_pike: ah. Well, the signs are ususally a good bet, easier to figure out than the map.
AlphaHelixNZ: @neddy471 Absolutely! Gave me chills when I figured it out.
aerobeing: @Neddy471 I'd love a thorough prequel or prequels of the beginnings of this and how it was all built. Maybe even in form of video or animated series.
Too_Many_Knives: Lighter colours on the map are higher up areas
Easilycrazyhat: You backtracked from the office when it wanted you to keep going.
Neddy471: @aerobeing Isn't that "Threshold Kids"?
Mushbie: it isn't
aerobeing: @Neddy471 That seems like a tiny part of it.
Foxmar320: Sign says thats correct
JadedCynic: We want Black Rock QUARRY not Black Rock Processing
Alahmnat: probably easiest to TP to the Atlas Chamber
Neddy471: It was 1/2 joke.
SachielOne: Can you go into the black area off the west side of the main room?
gravity_pike: I remember getting lost here as well, though :(
aerobeing: Which office? The UK one or the US one?
Mushbie: you have to go to Darlings office
Easilycrazyhat: Darling's black rock office, past Arish and the invis-monster
krorkle: You have a level five clearance, now.
SentientRatKing: My bet for one of the reasons why the game causes motion sickness so easily is that Jesse's movements are very sudden and rapid and you're moving the camera a lot during gameplay in a way that is also often very sudden and rapid. Shape of the environments might have something to do with it too. Lots of lines flitting by the screen. This is speaking as someone who had a severe inner ear illness a while back and still has to be careful of motion sickness.
aerobeing: I think it should show you on the map where you want to go.
nyperold: @aerobeing Both. AND neither.
aerobeing: With the current goal you have selected.
Easilycrazyhat: The way point system in this game could use some work.
aerobeing: And it does.
RomanGoro: The map is rather useless in this game
aerobeing: I see at least two options towards it.
Neddy471: Have we tried going on the upper level of the NSC power plant?
Too_Many_Knives: It shows where but not how
Neddy471: Because the upper railing looks like it connects to that area.
AlphaHelixNZ: I mean, I for one enjoy running through these hallways. Probably for the best considering it’s easy to get lost at times like this.
CleeKru: @aerobeing and cam tried both
aerobeing: @RomanGoro I didn't find it such when I played it. Though, the navigation can be somewhat non-straightforward.
Easilycrazyhat: I think it's the Atlas chamber
Alahmnat: it's through the Atlas Chamber
JadedCynic: @SentientRatKing yeah, I think the 'clean lines' asthetic is a big factor; less rounded stuff or textures to....i dunno - distract the eye?
aerobeing: @CleeKru There are nuances.
Neddy471: It's been a *long* time since I had to find anything in this game.
Pessistictimist: I can't remember... isn't it 'redacted' on the map?
krorkle: Atlas Chamber
Easilycrazyhat: So back up the stairs to Arish
TheMerricat: it feels any better Cam I think this is where Paul got lost as well
diceinbox: Hey Cam I remember you playing Nier on TS and that helped me through a shitty time. Thank you
Easilycrazyhat: I'm sorry :\
aerobeing: Immersion.
ZethRuss: door was on the left side
Alahmnat: as a gentle reminder, Arish moved over here and is no longer in the power plant
Too_Many_Knives: opposite side
Easilycrazyhat: Left corner when facing the glass
Foxmar320: Other side of the room was the door
Neddy471: :-( I always hated that part of this game, controller-breaking frustration.
Neddy471: lrrAWW
SentientRatKing: @JadedCynic yeah it creates some of the same effect I feel when playing rhythm games with lines on a moving bar like guitar hero that always hit me hard
johnalogue: it's a mysterious complex of shifting walls and mazelike corridors! On purpose!(?)
VorlonScout: As someone with no measurable sense of direction (in or out of games), I feel your pain.
diceinbox: The issue is that the right way somehow feels wrong
JadedCynic: sounds like a good deal tho - Arish is a good leader :)
Easilycrazyhat: You're going the right way now.
Easilycrazyhat: That's a side door, fwiw
johnalogue: yeah, that door doesn't scream "progression"
SentientRatKing: Oooh launch effeciency
Easilycrazyhat: Yeah, shortcut
Too_Many_Knives: Through
Alahmnat: keep going, you're good
diceinbox: That’s the right way
better_seasons: Do you need direction on where to next Cam?
Easilycrazyhat: In here
aerobeing: Yes,
JadedCynic: so chat - we go THROUGH black rock preocessing?
diceinbox: Cam you good?
Neddy471: XD
JadedCynic: now he is, yeah
gravity_pike: hey, we got there!
Easilycrazyhat: We got there ^.^
Too_Many_Knives: Good job
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: easily missed, I don't blame you at all
johnalogue: sure is, jeese
diceinbox: If it makes you feel better this part of the game is pretty
VorlonScout: I've done the same. Or worse.
gravity_pike: that part of the game had me, also, wandering around for like 2 hours.
Neddy471: "Apply head to keyboard, repeat until stress or consciousness has left"?
TheMerricat: Cheer100
Easilycrazyhat: Very pretty
aerobeing: LUL
Skeletonman1100: That was Bob from Quarrying.
accountmadeforants: "This is nice :) " BLAT
gsyhiap: They exploded into 100 bits!
diceinbox: That was a lowly worker named Jim you have killed him
SentientRatKing: This game needs the Dead Space way point line mechanic
Foxmar320: That was Bob, he was ne day from retirement
razgriz792: well they are a red smeer now whoeverthey were
CleeKru: nice
Masslost: poor Greg from accounting never even saw what hit him
Easilycrazyhat: The physics engine if quite robust
Alahmnat: I do love beaning guys in the back of the head
Easilycrazyhat: *is
Too_Many_Knives: Double hits are a very useful tactic
gravity_pike: yeah, hitting guys on the back of the head is a very efficient use of Mana
JadedCynic: ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Kipstar: that's where they keep the fire
Easilycrazyhat: So this is above the NSC Power Converter if you look down from that catwalk :)
diceinbox: The game is control you already found it
johnalogue: well that is the name of the game
Driosenth: Coming from someone who works in a government complex with a bunch of brutalist buildings, I love how well this game captures the feel of the offices and warehouses, sans the crazy layout of course
aerobeing: I liked controlling <redacted>.
johnalogue: Brutalism is awesome
Driosenth: I know those stairs.
diceinbox: The basic premise of the game is <redacted>
JadedCynic: yeah, those wall
aerobeing: @Driosenth I think with most buildings you go to for the first time, the layout feels as confusing.
armoredscarves: Polygon did a nice video about Control's architecture (and video game architecture in general) :)
Alahmnat: that particular wood-embedded concrete wall pattern is ALL OVER THE PLACE in the local university near where I grew up
ashteranic: my brother's high school was this building. complete with weirdo layout
JadedCynic: 60's Brutalist government buildings
Too_Many_Knives: UWaterloo's math building, complete with confusing layout and brutalism
Spluuga: 60's school
Sarah_Serinde: I had 4 years of high school in this building
diceinbox: And the parts they tried to update they decided to paint white
AziraphalesShop: Definitely paid for with federal funding
aerobeing: @Driosenth Or at least has a high chance to.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: ok, that got a solid chuckle out of me
Easilycrazyhat: So there's some interesting lore bits around the NSC there that are probably worth finding
elah806: Why is it always the math/labs building
RomanGoro: It very much passes Alex' "have the designers ever been in a building" test
Neddy471: There was this one building in UC Berkeley ("Evans") that was hard-core neo-brutalist style (All Concrete and exposed metal), it was the most incredibly depressing building I had ever been in.
GloriousLumi: Fun Facts: The puppets of Meg and Topher were made by one of the designers over a weekend, whose family has a long history of puppetry. And they are based on the Narrative Lead Anna MEGill and her brothe ChrisTOPHER
aerobeing: LUL
gravity_pike: This building was the Engineering building at university.
JadedCynic: Yeah, thanks to 9/11 I've had pilot friends who had to change their names to John...
Easilycrazyhat: Flipping through his Hiss-book page
xantos69: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:24:22.
diceinbox: Why did Alex stop doing talking sim?
gsyhiap: Easilycrazyhat - sure it wasn't Hisstergram?
JadedCynic: @Easilycrazyhat or his TL on Hisser?
Easilycrazyhat: His Mysp-hiss
Spluuga: I miss hanging out with Remedy guys..
Neddy471: Beating the game.
Easilycrazyhat: That ones...very late game
Too_Many_Knives: You get that for finishing the story
StreetCornerPoet: Maybe he was researching HISStory
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: They just got matched on hissr too
itsybitsystreams: Hissr: the dating app for snakes
diceinbox: You find them by doing side quests and continuing story
JadedCynic: @gsyhiap Hissbook bought Hisstergram, remember - they're basically the same thing
aerobeing: When you unlock them they are available at the quick travel points.
Neddy471: You get others for side-quests.
canahedo: You get that from beating the game
Mister_BlueSky: AFAIK they're at the end of sidequests mostly.
better_seasons: In a bit you can get a goldern suit at luck and proability
aerobeing: Or rather at the main one, I think.
GloriousLumi: Mt favorite suit is the Synchronicity outfit
canahedo: There's one in the syncronology lab
Easilycrazyhat: There's at least one you can go get now if you want.
SentientRatKing: Oh umm Cam a decent check for if your motion sickness is getting bad is to suddenly turn your head to the right or left. Can be helpful to gauge where you are with that as in my experience it can sneak up on you while playing games.
diceinbox: My favorite outfit is a side quest
JadedCynic: nah, Hisslr - the social media site for Hiss porn Kappa
Neddy471: Okay, I don't get motion sick, and this is making me woozy.
Alahmnat: I'm not sure "scrambling over exposed machinery and duct work" is "the old fashioned way" of getting to a lower floor when the elevator is broken...
ashteranic: absolutely weight bearing
SentientRatKing: I trust you know what you're doing just thought it might be a helpful tool to take or leave as you will
elah806: Both those types of ducts are very stable and rigid
diceinbox: Look at the load bearing dry wall
gsyhiap: JadedCynic - Really? Next you'll be telling me they bought Oculus Hiss and WhatsHiss too!
JadedCynic: @Neddy471 the VOD will be there - take a break if you need to
aerobeing: Yeah, equippable at the central executive control point.
Mister_BlueSky: The... one involving "luck" was fun. I did it without a guide and it was neat to figure out.
Easilycrazyhat: Die Hard is totally a real movie with things that would really happen
Neddy471: @JadedCynic :-) I appreciate it.
GloriousLumi: Yeah, those are the kinds of ducts jewel thieves and spies love crawling through
JadedCynic: foil-thick aluminum ducts
ashteranic: definitely not going to have a problem with a 130-150lb onto an air duct that's at most like 2-3mm thick and maybe insulation filled
ContingentCat: yeah they're made to transport air but definitly are made to be that strong
diceinbox: Jessie only ways 13Kg so
JadedCynic: ^^^
JadedCynic: :D
Easilycrazyhat: The Oldest House is built to withstand
ashteranic: with *dropping a 130-150lb woman onto*
ashteranic: me type good today
Driosenth: I know that a full grown man can crawl across the top of a round hvac duct that size, rectangular ducts, i'm not so sure
JadedCynic: I mean, look at those shiny finishes - you'd only get that with thin metal...
Invitare: obviously the Hiss reinforced everything so they could jump on it
gsyhiap: Yes, the *ducts* are the implausible part of this game.
RandomTrivia: @ashteranic You accidentally a word there :D
johnalogue: gee wonder what could've dented these ducts
GloriousLumi: Yeah,. rectangular ones aren't that strong
diceinbox: The end of the game happens when Jessie accidentally falls into a pit during a cutscene
AlphaHelixNZ: I’m pretty sure the Oldest House is made of Implausible.
JadedCynic: okay, The Oldest House adjusts gravity etc
Easilycrazyhat: This extra-dimensional building doesn't have believable duct-work XD
xantos69: "Support the weight of" is not the same as "will stop you if you are falling onto it from height"
DragonicDudeYT: shotgun is great because its puts you in range of health pick ups
ashteranic: @RandomTrivia more than a few
Quentastic: I like the divot, in the ductwork implying that people often come this way by the same means
JadedCynic: I mean, yeah, we just 'pushed the walls back' - so I think we can handwave away a little 'let's walk on tinfoil'
Skeletonman1100: So I take it the Hiss create weird reality warping disturbances or is the the Hedron?
krorkle: Spin is semiautomatic.
GloriousLumi: Well, when there are unpredictable building shifts from time to time you know you gotta make your infrastructure average-woman-proof
DragonicDudeYT: the dlc boss is so hard
nyperold: A primate could swing around on some of those ducts.
nyperold: What kind of primate?
Easilycrazyhat: You can sort by type to make comparing a little easier, btw
Mushbie: @skeletonman1100 if they are white it's hedron
nyperold: The duct ape. :)
GloriousLumi: Yes
Alahmnat: it's a boost to a subsequent kill
diceinbox: Can we all agree shatter is the worse
JadedCynic: @Skeletonman1100 well, kinda both, plus the Oldest House itself changes in ways that the universe shouldn't allow
xantos69: @nyperold Boooooooooo
RandomTrivia: @nyperold OH MY GOD
Too_Many_Knives: kill streak I think
krorkle: Kill streak
johnalogue: hhhahahaha
GamesAndInk: Maybe the building operates on Ork logic: anything you THINK works a certain way DOES.
s0lesurviv0r: needs more b0re
GloriousLumi: It's the Oldest House, so, yeah @GamesAndInk
TheMerricat: @skeletonman1100 what is reality? both the hiss and hedron impose their own version of it, you just happen to be a bit more biologically compatible with the hedrons version
JadedCynic: @GamesAndInk that's actually my headcanon for how the Director is 'chosen' - they have the focus and will to make these amorphous forces take concrete shape
InquisitorGaia: the house does work on ork logic @gamesandink
Skeletonman1100: Thanks chat!
GloriousLumi: @TheMerricat Not counting the slides
JadedCynic: @InquisitorGaia I disagree that it DOES not; it might not....but there's plenty of stuff Jesse seems to be doing that implies it might...
Officinalis: <3 The Pierce
Skeletonman1100: one more question: Blackrock has reality altering properties?
AlphaHelixNZ: Cam, your debris-sniping is on point right now. It’s very satisfying to watch.
Foxmar320: I see Cam has found the power of the Pierce to delete people
GloriousLumi: I'm hoping we somehow get access to slides in future games and get to explore those realities
johnalogue: @Skeletonman1100 Blackrock is paranatural lead, it blocks weird stuff
TheMerricat: remember there is a collectable that implies that anyone who starts to realize the the world outside in of the house is just another dimension/threshold has their head implode
GloriousLumi: @Skeletonman1100 More like reality-keeping properties
JadedCynic: "Just gonna box his ears a little"
InquisitorGaia: @jadedcynic ok thats fair
Skeletonman1100: @johnalogue that's what I was missing.
aerobeing: @GloriousLumi That sounds like a good in-universe premise to do whatever DLC they want.
aerobeing: @GloriousLumi Or future games.
ashteranic: they really did a great job allowing you to clamber over piles of junk you've spilled everywhere
Easilycrazyhat: Lok up
Easilycrazyhat: yeaahh
Mister_BlueSky: Pretty.
diceinbox: Purty
GloriousLumi: Well the latest Remedy article implies we will be exploring more of the world, but they weren't explicit WHICH world ;)
JadedCynic: lrrWOW
RandomTrivia: Woah pretty
MyrddintheWizard: lrrAWESOME
ContingentCat: gesundheit
Foxmar320: Nice
razgriz792: nice
ashteranic: they don't twinkle
Easilycrazyhat: That was a good one XD
JadedCynic: don't think to hard about 'what might be'
diceinbox: Nice
TheMerricat: score?
aerobeing: @TheMerricat The one we're seeing right now or the one we walked in from at the start of the game?
johnalogue: that was unexpected
krorkle: You’re still indoors, technically.
prof_membrane: Clip that
InquisitorGaia: youre still inside the house
Mushbie: if they are, they aren't ours
diceinbox: Cam what’s more frightening is that those are stars
Foxmar320: We were deep underground last I checked but in this game that doesn't matter
JadedCynic: @ashteranic well, you need an atmosphere to make starlight scintillate
TheMerricat: @aerobeing the one we walked in from
Makrosian_Tae: I missed it. Does Cam in fact have slow fall?
GloriousLumi: This is a Threshold inside the Oldest House
Easilycrazyhat: @InquisitorGaia Well...various interpertations of "inside" XD
Alahmnat: he has fall mitigation
AlphaHelixNZ: They’re little holes in the skin of the world letting the light in from Outside.
ashteranic: @JadedCynic i mean, true, but one would hope that there's air pressure in here :P
Sarah_Serinde: You know what...
Sarah_Serinde: !addquote (Cameron) [now] We're probably going to be okay.
LRRbot: New quote #7521: "We're probably going to be okay." —Cameron [2021-03-09]
Sarah_Serinde: I feel like adding something hopeful :P
ashteranic: maybe a distorted gradient, sure
SentientRatKing: @LoadingReadyRun forgot that you asked this but most outfits are unlocked by side quests, one is unlocked by a puzzle, and one is unlocked by completing the game
Officinalis: Or even if it technically is "off-gassing".
prof_membrane: So people found a trans dimensional concept device and … just set up a government agency in it?
RomanGoro: There's no way that's the first time that phrase is added to the quotes db, Sarah_Serinde :D
aerobeing: @TheMerricat If our world is just a piece of a "multiverse", then it might as well just be. No reason for it to be a "central" or "more real", just one we're used to.
JadedCynic: @ashteranic might not want to stop and think too hard about whether we're breathing right now, or WHAT we're breathing
diceinbox: Why does twitch sensor the word trans
aerobeing: @JadedCynic Or who.
razgriz792: YEp proably nothing to worry about
GloriousLumi: @prof_membrane It doesn't let just anybody in. It invited us in when it wanted itself to be know, and we only occupy it at it's discretion
Foxmar320: Ripping concrete out of the wall to dome someone out in this game is so satisfying
TheMerricat: @aerobeing what did I just say about imploding heads :p
JadedCynic: I mean, yeah, I've heard plenty of the guards grunt and make human noises while they fight.... lrrFINE
aerobeing: @TheMerricat You don't know me and what I want. :p
Sarah_Serinde: RomanGoro 5587 is definitely a good one
prof_membrane: @gloriouslumi Sounds like a relationship.
AlphaHelixNZ: Oh there’s one of those damn Hiss Clusters nearby.
GloriousLumi: Indeed. One that can be revoked by the Oldest House any time it desires
AlphaHelixNZ: There’s the blighter.
RomanGoro: 5587 is close enough, yeah
Foxmar320: Those round ball things are super annoying.
Dog_of_Myth: Oh nice. Cam got to the quarry
SachielOne: Oh, it gets worse. The Shame Orb heals the monsters
aerobeing: @Foxmar320 Or super useful. With the right tools.
Easilycrazyhat: I think pierce, well, pierces shields. I could be misremembering.
TheMerricat: has Cam actually been informed that those balls are healers
ashteranic: the healing balls flip around to being really handy when you can possess them :P
prof_membrane: Ok dynamite sounds like a healthy response
Laserbeaks_Fury: I really like the gameplay loop of cycling between using abilities and using the Service Weapon
GirlPainting: So @LoadingReadyRun Cameron, how do you feel this game implements the game mechanic from half life 2 ´ s grav gun? just a copy and paste or dos it bring something new to the table?
Foxmar320: I don't think Jessie is trained to operate explosives. Oh well im sure it's fine
Officinalis: Something...something....a clever reword of Rock Candy Mountain as Black Rock Candy Mountain.
Laserbeaks_Fury: LFG Blackrock Quarry
johnalogue: @Foxmar320 I don't think Jesse is trained for ANY of this
Easilycrazyhat: Oh yeah, we missed an ability back in Research, didn't we.
GloriousLumi: @prof_membrane Technically Jesse was searching for the Oldest House most of her life, and she only gained access when it let her. The same went for everyone else that works at the FBC
Foxmar320: :D
RandomTrivia: @Officinalis You clearly wanted to use that pun for Nefarious purposes :D
LathosTiran: BR prism, is this a new black rock shooter reskin?
Alahmnat: that is an unsafe place for that control panel
aerobeing: I think this is sort of Matrix-adjacent style of training. You'll understand it later in the game. :p
Foxmar320: Oh good
GloriousLumi: No, just a literal prism made of Black Rock
aerobeing: Or, maybe not understand, but learn more of. LUL
SachielOne: Marines, WE ARE LEAVING.
Officinalis: It lives here now. We are it's guests.
GirlPainting: left
diceinbox: Oh cam you can’t kill death
InquisitorGaia: back out
GirlPainting: if nothing goes right, go left
gsyhiap: Away
razgriz792: leave
Foxmar320: Can't kill death but im sure gonna try
InquisitorGaia: yes
GloriousLumi: Who doesn't?
ContingentCat: sure would be nice
aerobeing: Absolutely.
InquisitorGaia: maybe then my body would not be falling apart
razgriz792: death
Foxmar320: Yeah I think that blast might have let them out
Foxmar320: Or let them in?
GloriousLumi: Or woken them up
Easilycrazyhat: They won't follow
JadedCynic: @GloriousLumi actually she has only been looking the Federal Bureau of Control since she had a Threshhold event in Butte and the FBC took her brother and covered everything up, the fact that Jesse's been in contact with an astral being (the shimmering triangles we see) is the only reason she was able to look at The Oldest House and see it (at least the FBC's entrance in New York)
Alahmnat: I don't think they come inside
MAPBoardgames: How old is Jesse? 24?
aerobeing: @InquisitorGaia Or maybe it still would, but in very flareful and useful ways.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Marshall and her rangers, on a routine expedition, met the greatest Threshold ever known
krorkle: They won’t leave the quarry
GloriousLumi: @JadedCynic That's what I said.
Spluuga: boredom, the worst failstate
diceinbox: According to the late great Terry Pratchett all you have to do is get Death drunk and give him curry so he won’t kill you
prof_membrane: @gloriouslumi Insight, fear, ty
itomeshi: Woot, catching live Cam and Control!
Rhynerd: I’m a little disappointed that the astral plane monsters aren’t killing the Hiss infected.
johnalogue: @diceinbox Okay, but you're taking death-cheating advice from a person you described as "late"
Easilycrazyhat: So if you wanted an outfit, there's one you can get now via a puzzle.
JadedCynic: @GloriousLumi no YOU said The Oldest House let Jesse see it, not that a separate entity helped Jesse see it
aerobeing: @diceinbox I can believe curry has that potential.
diceinbox: @johnalogue how dare you insult that man
krorkle: The luck puzzle, but it’s complicated.
JadedCynic: @Rhynerd the story might explain why that is...
InquisitorGaia: puzzles are not here
Easilycrazyhat: Not here, but with the things you currently have. It's in the luck study room.
SachielOne: Bentral Executive
Laserbeaks_Fury: She'll be in Central Executive now
SachielOne: *Central
InquisitorGaia: centeral
TheMerricat: Sounds awesome
Easilycrazyhat: Sounds good :)
krorkle: Central executive.
Alahmnat: works for me
diceinbox: Oh god I just remembered the flamingo
aerobeing: @krorkle It feels complicated. But all of the instructions are actually in the game.
ContingentCat: sounds good
razgriz792: sounds good
gsyhiap: Seems good
TheMerricat: Nice.
GirlPainting: So @LoadingReadyRun Cameron, how do you feel this game implements the game mechanic from half life 2 ´ s grav gun? just a copy and paste or dos it bring something new to the table?
RomanGoro: Good & Cool as the kids say
Wolfstrike_NL: Sounds like a 2 step plan
Easilycrazyhat: Looks good!
ContingentCat: cute
RandomTrivia: Fancy.
InquisitorGaia: you look good
krorkle: Thumbs up.
RealGamerCow: rad
SachielOne: I think I saw that side view on a coin once
JadedCynic: yeah, we told Marshall to join Pope in the Boardroom
aerobeing: Nice. I'm getting some Pirates of the Carribean style vibes.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Looks good on you
GloriousLumi: @JadedCynic How do you think she hadn't seen it before? It wasn't all Hedron. The House was in need of a new director, it let both Hedron and Jesse in.
SentientRatKing: You look good
ashteranic: cam's turning into a colonialist british naval commander
MAPBoardgames: Cam has the Tomas Jefferson going on.
Spluuga: yeah I too have a ponytail..
SachielOne: Hey, no need to insult the man
ashteranic: or maybe just a barrister
Easilycrazyhat: Hmmm, wonder what happened to P1-5
JadedCynic: @ashteranic I thought he looks a little like George Washington
LathosTiran: dear devs, stop faking putting the thing in a pocket. usually theyre bigger than that
diceinbox: The main issue I have with the writing is the zoom ins on Jessie saying obvious things
Laserbeaks_Fury: Now we know who Threshold Kids was being made for
JadedCynic: then why didn't you take ME in?
Easilycrazyhat: @JadedCynic She ran away
Alahmnat: to be fair, they did try. we just got away
RomanGoro: Can we talk about how good that eye is?
TheMerricat: @JadedCynic to be fair she ran and hid, he didn't
MAPBoardgames: @JadedCynic Jesse hid when the FBC arrived
InquisitorGaia: @Easilycrazyhat sure
RomanGoro: JadedCynic who told you they didn't take her?
JadedCynic: yeah, and 'her freind' helped her hide...
Makrosian_Tae: Frienemies
TheMerricat: I think by this point in the game we've already learned that her friend's name is Polaris.
JadedCynic: well, this is how they keep an eye on him.,...oh dear
Makrosian_Tae: Dylan spooky
Easilycrazyhat: This is a good cliff hanger to leave on, hah
xantos69: Cheer50 Thanks for the stream!
nyperold: "We needed stuff done. If we told you before, wouldn't you have skipped straight to that and not done it?"
Neddy471: Go Cam!
JadedCynic: yeah, I think she mentioned Polaris's name ONCE while talking with Pope - thanks for reminding me <3
TheMerricat gifted a Tier 1 sub to Darling! They have given 2957 Gift Subs in the channel!

arkham1981 subscribed with Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, arkham1981! (Today's storm count: 75)
SentientRatKing: Have a good night chat thanks for being your usual friendly selves. Thanks to the subs for supporting LRR
RandomTrivia: Thanks for the stream Cam! lrrHEART
TheMerricat: It's amazing how many constants folk managed to come up with in math and science before the introduction of modern technology.
JadedCynic: I mean, Jesse may refer to her hed-friend as "Polaris" but, like an old friend, she doesn't directly address it with its name :) And she doesn't seem to find any opportunity (or need) to talk about Polaris with others besides Pope, so....yeah
aerobeing: Is there a motion blur setting to turn off?
ContingentCat: Thanks Cam
Easilycrazyhat: With Wheeler
JadedCynic: @aerobeing that's WITH Motion Blur off
JadedCynic: No
Juliamon: He's enlisted Wheeler to help.
BlackIsis: Why would you want to escape, it's a lovely place
RandomTrivia: Wheeler will be here to laugh at James
JadedCynic: you can't escape tarkov yet - it's early access
ContingentCat: "help"
DeM0nFiRe: If he doesn't escape tonight, does LRR have to stage a rescue mission?
RandomTrivia: """help"""
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
JadedCynic: that's the fun part - James + Wheeler going working
TheMerricat: Is tarkov really a game you can play MP or just as player and spectator?
Easilycrazyhat: Feel better Cam! Thanks for the stream :)
CAKHost: James and/or Wheeler
aerobeing: @BlackIsis Such a lovely place, (Such a lovely place), Such a lovely face...
Easilycrazyhat: Evil of the 4th kind
JadedCynic: thanks for the fun, cam - rest well - you deserve it
CAKHost: Funko for laugh track
DeM0nFiRe: o/ lrrHEART
Alahmnat: take care, Cam
BlackIsis: I believe it's some sort of evil sublet
johnalogue: too much hair is relatable
CAKHost: Bye!
Neddy471: @TheMerricat You can "technically" play MP, it's just that Funk and James are too far to be able to get to the same server.
TheWriterAleph: bye Cam!
Easilycrazyhat: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
BlackIsis: I haven't had a haircut in 20 months
JadedCynic: Hope we all get our vaccines soon, and we can 'go back to normal'

aerobeing: @TheMerricat Yes. But there are no friend/foe markers, so you need communication via an external program, like Discord.
Neddy471: @JadedCynic I hear that. My Wife is pining for Disneyland now that Cali is opening up again.
JadedCynic: @Neddy471 well, if they try to group, their 'unreasonable' ping make the game drop one of them
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I just want to play magic face to face again :(
TheMerricat: me too @JadedCynic though the way my state government is handling them, I'm not that enthusastic about it happening before next winter.
JadedCynic: I just wanna drive my cab again, and take people places, and not worry about bringing death home to my family
JadedCynic: tell you what tho - when it is 'all over' - I am going to be asking people for SO MANY HUGS :D
TheMerricat: Fair, I have a feeling this has cemented my agrophobic and anti-social tendancies to the point where I'll be avoiding the outside and people for the rest of my life but that's OK, being a hermit is fun :P
JadedCynic: at least on the plus side - all this lockdown, quarantine, safety measures, etc. has virtually annihilated the influenza virus :D
TheMerricat: WOOT WOOT on that! :)
aerobeing: @JadedCynic I feel like "free hugs" might be quite a thing at some point after it ends.
Juliamon: Even if I wasn't uncomfortable with hugs to begin with, I don't think I'd be comfortable until years after "it's over"
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat I suppose locdown has shown that your way of life is PERFECTLY FINE and TOTALLY ACCEPTABLE, DAMMIT! <3
TheMerricat: 100% agreed :)
DeM0nFiRe: Whelp I was gonna watch a show before lets nope but funimation is ded
TheMerricat: If only that nasty need for the ability to pay rent wasn't there...
Juliamon: DO NOT TOUCH has become such a deeply ingrained sentiment, I love being in a crowd but I do NOT want to be in a crowd any time remotely soon.
DeM0nFiRe: Also the big thing that I want to do that I cant do now is go for a nice walk without a mask so I can breathe fresh air
JadedCynic: I mean I first voiced my aspiration as "I am gonna hug EVERYONE" and before Istopped speaking, I'd already appended with ", once I've asked their permission" :)
TheMerricat: :)
JadedCynic: I mean, winter is making things worse here - it's not safe to walk the streets around here until maybe May for all the snowbanks...but at least I'll be able to go for a walk (keeping away from people) soon...
TheMerricat: whelp time for me to nap a bit, chat you all are awesome. here's to hoping that the world goes back to 'normal' soon and you all get your desired amount or lack of social and physical interactions soon. :D Be safe, be well, and be happy!
JadedCynic: o/
DeM0nFiRe: Most of the snowbanks have melted here (though not out of the question they would return) though there is one big snowbak right on my street corner. It's like a 15 foot snowbank or something it's impressive lol
DeM0nFiRe: o/ TheMerricat
JadedCynic: I mean, we've got 3 feet of compacted snow covering suburban sidewalks; even without any more storms it's gonna be a while before we can see the intersections AT the stop sign :D
DeM0nFiRe: Heh
DeM0nFiRe: We didnt get very much snow here this winter. Usually around early february we get tons and tons of snow, like 1 or 2 full blown blizzards
DeM0nFiRe: Didn't happen this year. Got like one snow storm of like 8 inches maybe and another handful of a few inches each
JadedCynic: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Let's Nope (Ben and Adam play horror games until they find the key that will bring them true happiness. Game: Resident Evil 4) at Tue 05:00 PM PST (25m from now).
