TXC2: love this bit
nyperold: I've neither played this nor watched a full playthrough; just seen clips.
rustenskurk: You know, even as a subscriber I'd be happy to see ads on going live or designated ad breaks. It was ads every literal 10 minutes during VODs that used to drive me mad.
GapFiller: thought occurs: how to gauge stuff like that if everyone is subbed

TXC2: hello NightValien28 welcome
JadedCynic: it can be handy to have a window as some mobos will have seven-point number displays for boot error codes, etc.
NightValien28: TXC2 hello friend
innovativemethods: @jadedcynic nah, just listen for the beeps
pharniel: Perfectly reasonable pronunciation. It's like you've pronounced lots of names normally unspoken before.
JadedCynic: @innovativemethods how, with all the sound insulation? ;)

NightValien28: its your now, HANDLE IT
Orgmastron: Oh right
Thatwasademo: it's time to go for a walk
Hugh_Munculus: !yay
LRRbot: Yaaaaaaay...
Genie_M: it's just a few sidequests and a bike
ArcOfTheConclave: inb4 the CP2077 content is bugged
LurkerSpine: woah, wait, is Paul's camera focusing on his face?
BusTed: Auto tracking?
PsychoI3oy: your webcam is moving
Sly_chocobo: While this has nothing to do with DS, I'd be super intrested to see how the audio-routing is done on that PC, its something Im struggling with a lot right now :D
BusTed: Neat.
Riiiiiiis: following the face
NightValien28: oh no does that mean the game is gonna crash out just like cyberpunk LUL
LurkerSpine: that is amazing
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat because lrrGREED
saucemaster5000: wow cyberpunk is so busted it's affecting other games?
PsychoI3oy: only slightly unsettling
frnknstn: If you see any graphics glitches, call it 'Cyberpunk 2077 content"

wench_tacular: such face, very wow
Alahmnat: it's very... precise
Aquarionics: It's a little seasick inducing.
10of9: Cool!
iris_of_ether: lrrWOW
Theycallmejokke: The future, it is here!
Thatwasademo: I have no idea whether the head tracking is sick or sickening
NojhLivic: On tiny window it's not bad.
Travilogue: Mildly distracting, but maybe just because I'm not used to it?
kopflurch123: you dont stream that much paul right
Sly_chocobo: A stream for another day perhaps :D
TehAmelie: wait is there crossover with this and Cyberpunk? i have no idea what to expect
ContingentCat: Maybe make t a little less sensitive
JadedCynic: that was pretty good for tracking, but I'm pretty resistent to motion-sickness
Brozard: mmm, don't like it
Critterbot: Cool, but... I'm not sure if I like it.
TehAmelie: when you hear Hideo Kojima got off the leash, the sky is the limit. there was a day when i assumed the real name of the game was "Norman Reedus and the Funky Fetus"
Brozard: Can you increase the bounding box?

TheThromborax: I love this game.
TheThromborax: the ending is so fucking anime
Thatwasademo: Large looks a lot more readable from here, yeah
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie let's just put it this way: Kojima was able to get Guillermo del Toro to ACT in this game - Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelssen, Lindsay Wagner is small beans by comparison
ConspiracyOfCartographers: The head-tracking thing is still weirding me out
TehAmelie: are you sure? because you will get backsies

PixelArtDragon: Pew pew
TheThromborax: God this is a good song

Theycallmejokke: Russell nooo!
JadedCynic: and there's the death happening, - name explained in the first 5 min
Pteraspidomorphi: Control and Thimbleweed Park were both great playthroughs
fcloud: and then motorcycle man found himself stranded. death stranding. the end
PMAvers: That gives a new meaning to "as the crow flies." Right into the dirt.
JadedCynic: oh shi-
serialtram: rip
NightValien28: dead
wench_tacular: coming through
Aenir798: F
Despoiler98: what did he just hit?
NimrodXIV: whoops?
NojhLivic: Wipeout
Carlioo: wreckless driving, smh
theneatestburrito: RIP Lea Seydoux?
Mysticman89: well, everyones extreme sport career starts somewhere
DoodlestheGreat: FRA-GI-LE.... Must be Italian...
EvilBadman: We went 0->Kojima pretty quck
NightValien28: Despoiler98 mary poppings
Alahmnat: I like that her umbrella said "handle with care"
BusTed: aw beans
raulghoulia: helmet?
NightValien28: NOO the bike
fcloud: motorcycle man would benefit grreatly from some basic trail markers
JadedCynic: gotta get our packages
Genie_M: she's fine
QuietJay: guess now we walk, and walk, and walk
lifecharacter: Them smart drugs.
BusTed: pennyCuss
TehAmelie: i think it said "Handled with care" to be even more stylish
RvLeshrac: Oh, there's a lot of stuff in this game.
PMAvers: Insert Let's Nope! intro here
fcloud: that was my favorite super futuristic techno bike!
cgwonder: our first objective isn't 'check if that woman is okay'?
Carlioo: language!
Thatwasademo: go left
HundreydAundre: That's reasonable, yea.
RavingPenguin: Brain pills
DoodlestheGreat: Just a bit. There's some nudie bits, too...
Joda011980: goodevening everyone
JadedCynic: you gotta EARN that bike, Paul
Jakelope13: Wait, she's the reason why we have to walk everywhere? And it doesn't look like she was even there! Dagnabit
CanPlayGames: Get drugs
TXC2: hello Joda011980 welcome
Despoiler98: get them SMART drugs
Mysticman89: all the delicacy of an adam metaphor
JadedCynic: water == bad
RvLeshrac: cgwonder: I'm sure she's sturdy.
HundreydAundre: I blinked, & am lead to belief that his Bike ran away without him.
wench_tacular: I'm Batman
Carlioo: ah yes, the odradek
BusTed: The Xs represent things that are not cargo.
Carlioo: at least the names are kinda creative
Alahmnat: how did our stuff get that far away?
Despoiler98: @HundreydAundre bike took a short leap off a tall cliff
TehAmelie: i guess smart drugs are bad for you if you crash your bike into a lady who isn't there
TXC2: so the Xs are NOT gonna give it to us?
JadedCynic: @HundreydAundre it was on the edge of the cliff, and the wet soil crumbled and it fell
JohnLockeCole: yeah I hate when I crash into TransReality
Taveena: I'm 15 minutes late! What's happened so far?
PsychoI3oy: 2080 super?
JadedCynic: @TXC2 oh the x's will give it to us, but we don't want it
EvilBadman: @Taveena Not much, tbh
Mangledpixel: so far this looks incredible
Pteraspidomorphi: May I suggest +10% Paul volume? What do other people think? (Paul did ask us to comment on the mix)
ArcOfTheConclave: the Xs are more rugged terrain.
Mysticman89: I'm always looking for reasons to justify a 3090
Anubis169: Hihi Paul et al lrrAWESOME
SohNata: Paul does sound a little quite relative to the game, i would agree.
Genie_M: you will get lots of likes
graal_smith: It IS a popularity contest
wench_tacular: isn't everything?
TehAmelie: yeah Paul could be louder please
TXC2: hello Anubis169
DoodlestheGreat: Yes it is, paul...
PMAvers: Oh god does this mean Paul's now on Twitter?
Despoiler98: Everything is a popularity contest Paul
Izandai: Everything is a popularity contest.
Genie_M: yup
Scy_Anide: Game audio is definitely high compared to Paul audio
Carlioo: yeah the sound mixing is a bit off paul, try raising your volume
PsychoI3oy: 👍
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun very much so - in that 'likes' is the fiat currency of the world
Taveena: From what I've heard this is actually a popularity contest ingame.
flufff42: A little more Paul audio would be good
Anubis169 huggles everybody
Despoiler98: LOL Izandai
JohnLockeCole: I mean, Paul is very popular among chat
TheExactSame: don't want to get stranded at the uncool table at lunch
Izandai: #Drift
Carlioo: hello!
NightValien28: echo echo echo
Brozard: HELLOHELhelHLhlo
JadedCynic: good timing there - got a cool echo effect :D
RvLeshrac: It is a pity this is on PC, because BB coming out of the speaker is great.
RvLeshrac: *controller speaker
TXC2: hello, is it me you're looking for?
RvLeshrac: But the graphics are fantastic.
JadedCynic: run the scanner again
TehAmelie: yelling up here seems like it could cause an avalanche. which might be bad if you're standing on top of it
PixelArtDragon: This is some really nice inverse kinematics
RvLeshrac: "See that mountain? You can fall off it."
graal_smith: Also, I really wish that they got David Hayter to incredulously repeat the keywords of Death Stranding. Like: "Bridge Baby?!" or "Odradek!?"
Thatwasademo: the feature the scanner has where it tells you definitively what parts of the geometry are slippery is great
wench_tacular: wuss
Genie_M: assassins creed with 100+ kg of cargo
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun that's the DESTINATION for the package we're carrying - the rain is bad and we need to shelter from it
JadedCynic: there's something in the water
Alahmnat: oh dear
Despoiler98: wasnt something invisible chasing him?
PMAvers: Oh, deer.
Theycallmejokke: Oh our pizzas are going to be cold when we finally arrive, goodbye tip
Genie_M: the rain _is_ dangerous
JadedCynic: looks like some leaks in his jacket
TehAmelie: hey, David Hayter has a website where he'll voice act any sound byte you pay him for. . .
RvLeshrac: Rain bad, water fine.
Despoiler98: or incredibly acidic rain
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB
EvilBadman: Y'all went all out to film Suspiciously Slow Movers Kappa
JadedCynic: well 'acidic'
ContingentCat: cute tattoo
NightValien28: omg he has pores
JadedCynic: spidey sense
saucemaster5000: Wow that's a terrible stick and poke
Carlioo: is it goosebumps or an allergic reaction
wench_tacular: sir!
CanPlayGames: Is that normal Retus?
Despoiler98: oh dear
Mangledpixel: ah, so this is an adaption of the Goosebumps books
MyBuddySuperfly: #mood
Taveena: Ghostrilla!
Aenir798: rapidly growing dying plants wat
JadedCynic: again, spidey-sense
RvLeshrac: Kojima:Norman Reedus::Yoko Taro:2B
TehAmelie: ehrmegerd, gerhbemps?
Genie_M: welcome to Kojima-and
BusTed: lrrSPOOP
PMAvers: lrrSPOOP Hey kids, just a warning that there may be some really big spooks coming up okay byeeeeeeeeeeee
cgwonder: oh good, she's fine
graal_smith: Because as They Might be Giants said, "Wearing a raincoat is flying around in a airplane made of a raincoat."
ArcOfTheConclave: she got better
Despoiler98: what the actual hell
Alahmnat: sir? sir.
Carlioo: ghosts everywhere!
JadedCynic: oh, another one....on the ceiling....
aWabbajack: lrrSPOOP awabbaCheeseBB
wench_tacular: we obey the laws of gravity around here!
fcloud: pretty easy to sneak up on sam, he should get his hearing checked
Sanityis0verrated: why it get sharp
Jakelope13: Wait, so if the grass is sprouting then immediately dying in the mystery rain.... then what's all the green stuff outside? And why is it immune to the mystery rain?
RvLeshrac: He doesn't have a shirt on because Kojima wanted to see him without a shirt on.
JadedCynic: to get away from the rain on it?
BusTed: I'm trying to picture how this thing ambulates.
NightValien28: Sanityis0verrated its dragging its fingers when it moves
Aenir798: Fanservice
XandaxDK: Shouldn't have sneezed
Pteraspidomorphi: Paul!
Manae: So people are also invisible to the invisible monsters?
TehAmelie: if you are invisible, visible light will pass through you eye
Carlioo: damnit paul!

FoxBoxGamers: @Jakelope13 it's not exactly deadly rain
Taveena: It's a levitating monkey that just keeps slapping the ground.
HavenJunde: ah, the handstand ghost
wench_tacular: tiny creature, huge feet
MyBuddySuperfly: really long arms, maybe?
Aenir798: maybe it's just an invisible hand
Max_Mckayful: I think it knows we're here and is just trolling us
Genie_M: you'll see - they're ... different
josh___something: implying it has a 'rest of it's body'
TehAmelie: maybe the invisible hand of the market is hunting us
BusTed: Just very dense.
graal_smith: Or they're walking from UNDERNEATH?
TheExactSame: "ok bye"
Jakelope13: Maybe it's a monkey-ghost? Their feet look like hands, right?
JadedCynic: It's stepping - pushing off from the heel and putting all the weight on its toes, so the claws plant at the end of the 'print
fcloud: it's a man on a hand-shaped pogo stick
RvLeshrac: TehAmelie: No, these things are real lrrBEEJ
JadedCynic: yay, the rain has passed
TehAmelie: zing
Electrodyne: It's High Five Ghost from Regular Show
Sanityis0verrated: it's Thing from the Adam's Family playing a jike
MyBuddySuperfly: Harry "Porter"
Genie_M: you'll see more than that ;)
Sanityis0verrated: *joke
Carlioo: I feel like the game still is a bit too loud btw, but maybe that's just me
raulghoulia: you dont?
Taveena: They're ferrofluid!
Sanityis0verrated: that jacket is great
saucemaster5000: yeah who's side are you on? Norman Reedus or the people who want to look at Norman Reedus?
Taveena: Over 9000!
Orgmastron: Yeah game audio is still a bit loud
Sanityis0verrated: easy approach me fuck off signals
rustenskurk: Ah yes some proper Kojima nonsense
JadedCynic: but have you ever gotten into the shelter from rain - the first instinct is to remove your wet clothing
fcloud: let me get out my scanner
TehAmelie: i want to think she extends the spikes as a fear reflex
ArcOfTheConclave: timefall
NightValien28: you don't say
Caldurin: of course it is
nyperold: Timefall.
ContingentCat: Wow
JadedCynic: She's got 'mood spikes'
Jakelope13: So.... has he beaten Doom (2016)?
Alahmnat: Kojima I think we need to talk about your names
Thatwasademo: let's be careful not to break your name, then
Mangledpixel: yuuuup, it's a Kojima game, sigh
neisan2112: The names in this game
JadedCynic: ^^^
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> You had Magic related questions, we had Magic related answers! This week on TTC Graham, Cameron and Nelson A your Q's! ||
Basic_Human_Decency: the man with the package Kappa
Sanityis0verrated: she is really a cat
MyBuddySuperfly: nomnomnom
s0lesurviv0r: Porter, do you transport things?
Alahmnat: giant tardigrades
JohnLockeCole: wait, sam bridges? I thought we were named Norman Reedus?
nyperold: So it ages you to death? Is that what we're saying?
TXC2: ah Bond, that's where I know this actress from
Jakelope13: Wait, that's his actual name? Sam Porter Bridges? Or is "Porter" a nickname?
MyBuddySuperfly: I was joking
wench_tacular: ewww
BusTed: monch
FoxBoxGamers: normal human phrases
JohnLockeCole: that's what everyone keeps calling this guy
graal_smith: "Chryobite?!"
Thatwasademo: it's like both of everyone's names are their surname and surnames are always accurate all the time
NightValien28: why is it crunchy
JadedCynic: @Jakelope13, both, sort of
Sanityis0verrated: enjoying that a bit much
TehAmelie: i would think if you had a tardigrade that big and put it in your mouth it would eat your head
Aquarionics: @Jakelope13: nominative determinism in action

NightValien28: RvLeshrac god why
TheExactSame: so does that confusing with 'fragile' painted on all their packages
RvLeshrac: Then again, they're usually fried.
Sanityis0verrated: yep conveniently soaked in a way that doesn't affect my face
JadedCynic: protein is protein
Basic_Human_Decency: it's just an unfried chicken nugget
thetoastmonster: I think her umbrella is broken.
FoxBoxGamers: edgebrella
ShaneLeeAtk: Ah, I see we are playing Kojima's Spotify List.
TehAmelie: extremely conceptual umbrella
MyBuddySuperfly: Try not to burn the bridges you encounter
BusTed: Agreed.
Genie_M: CEO of Fragile Express
TheExactSame: and sharp
Theycallmejokke: That is a shit umbralla
ContingentCat: it's called fashion Paul
josh___something: cool and impractical
Mangledpixel: gritty scifi reboot of Mary Poppins
Sanityis0verrated: true though it may eat through fabric
HavenJunde: its not actually an umbrella
Thatwasademo: didn't you crash into this lady's umbrella earlier, though?
graal_smith: "Timefall?!"
RvLeshrac: Not an umbrella but spoilers
Thatwasademo: or was that someone else
JohnLockeCole: I assume it's like that because we crashed into it?
tenthtechpriest: titanfall?
NightValien28: Thatwasademo it was her

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, PrancerInflatableReindeer! (Today's storm count: 31)
Jakelope13: Okay, that's a much better explanation for why she's wearing gloves than "I'm secretly hiding something". I imagine she's hiding something, too, but the "my skin looks older than I am" explanation is much more reasonable.
NightValien28: kay
TehAmelie: ooh, it wasn't acid, it was super time rain
JadedCynic: okayyyy
BusTed: Teleportation seems handy for a delivery person.
Despoiler98: so she can teleport?
Max_Mckayful: I am ... Batman (whoosh)
CanPlayGames: They should just be in hamster balls, yeah?
Carlioo: why do you need an umbrella if you can just teleport anyway
FoxBoxGamers: and THAT's why the rain is 'deadly'
nyperold: Maybe it works better when it's timefall, not rainfall?
Genie_M: yup, she teleports
damn_i_am_pretty: Batmaning away
FoxBoxGamers: but also grows plants
fcloud: not a very good umbrella, and we happen to be in a world where a good umbrella would be pret-ty useful
JadedCynic: there's stuff in the sky, and the rain brings it down
Pseudonym_Ken: Makes everything older?
Sanityis0verrated: kinda just want her to Mary Poppins with that non umbrella
Thatwasademo: presumably the moss is fine because moss doesn't care how old it is
wench_tacular: checks out
TXC2: rain that makes time pass?
Despoiler98: wait THATs what Blood is for?
Taveena: I recommend keeping the blood inside you.
Genie_M: rain fast forwards time
Thatwasademo: don't run out of blood, got it
azureHaights: "When you have no blood, you die" big same
TehAmelie: clearly we're gonna have to call it an un-brella
Alahmnat: "don't run out of blood" what is this a souls game?
Ignatiuspants: can confirm! running out of blood is bad
CanPlayGames: Living 101: Keep the blood
Carlioo: maybe you can refresh your stamina with a refreshing monster energy drink
JohnLockeCole: I also die when I have no blood
JadedCynic: yes @LoadingReadyRun this is literally a walking (hiking?) simulator
MTGRanger: I’m big on having blood, personally
JadedCynic: and strangely, it's FUN
Jakelope13: Okay, so does the timefall actually affect everything it hits, or does it just alter the age of everything on the surface? Is her whole hand really old, or just the skin?
CaptainSpam: Is this VOD going to be super turbo muted?
Genie_M: bleep goes forward
Mangledpixel: is it worth checking for a streamer option in the menus, in case this music is an issue?
Theycallmejokke: Don't tell us how to live game! Maybe we're going for a no blood run ;P
aWabbajack: lrrAWW lrrAWESOME
Izandai: It was directional before.
MyBuddySuperfly: Netflix's Dark Season 4?
Genie_M: it was
graal_smith: Enjoy, Paul.
JadedCynic: Crypto biote
nyperold: It's a good thing you can keep going with far more blood than a human can, I guess.
RvLeshrac: You scared it away.
Mangledpixel: too slow
RvLeshrac: They're more afraid of you than you are of them.
Genie_M: they scare away
Despoiler98: lrrAWESOME
TehAmelie: walking-with-literally-everything-strapped-to-your-back simulator is what i've heard
Max_Mckayful: @MyBuddySuperfly Nailed it - was trying to place this flavor of music
RvLeshrac: OK, that's not true, I'd probably be pretty afraid of eating one.
MyBuddySuperfly: @Max_Mckayful :D
RvLeshrac: "Cryptobiote" implies that nobody knows what it is.
cgwonder: this soundtrack is incredible
PrancerInflatableReindeer: is that low roar?
TXC2: boy that music is loud
Genie_M: please use walkways
keroan0: Music is perhaps a little loud
serialtram: music is a bit louad
CyberColossus: oh damn hey Paul 👍🏿
RvLeshrac: Hallelujah!
CaptainSpam: Game music is rather loud, yeah.
RvLeshrac: Paul has immediately learned that you can balance.
CanPlayGames: I hope they make a reskin of this game where you play as a wee lad trying to get rid of a ring that a bunch of ghosts want
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie yeah, it makes 'walking' a challenge - boxes bigger than you over terrain that seems like straight off a volcanic island like hawaii or similar :D
RvLeshrac: And thus has a leg up on 99% of the other streamers I've seen play Death Stranding.
JadedCynic: there's that deer, too
Genie_M: it _is_ a walking simulator
ashiok_nightmare_moose: I loved this game, I hope you enjoy it too paul.
LuveenW: deep water
flufff42: In sections the music seems intentionally load to set the mood, drowning out gameplay in some “cutscenes”
Genie_M: water is fine - if it doesnt flow too much
Genie_M: scan it
TehAmelie: i have run out of my endurance gauge while wading a river. it did then tap into the blood gauge
JadedCynic: well, groundwater is 'clean' of that timefall stuff, but a river is still dangerous to a hiker anyway :D
Gen2Gengar: This music sounds like a collaboration between Thom Yorke and Julian Casablancas
Genie_M: blue water is fine, yellow depletes your stamina quickly, red just sweeps you away
Basic_Human_Decency: this music sure isn't annoying Kappa
TheExactSame: Seriously
Aenir798: Loud music
NightValien28: super loud
TXC2: thank you Paul
NightValien28: thanks paul
RvLeshrac: The music is intentionally louder than the game.
Brozard: Dang, that's....unfortunate
Sanityis0verrated: it is no persona
JadedCynic: yay, console games shovelled into PC
TXC2: damnit Kojima :p
Mangledpixel: ugghhh
NightValien28: what?
Max_Mckayful: Seriously? Don't be so serious Paul (jk, that seems dumb)
Rhynerd: Good song, but yeah that is rather loud
tenthtechpriest: that's so serious
aWabbajack: SingsNote SingsNote SingsNote SingsMic
Aenir798: that's...dumb. only master audio???
ContingentCat: are they serious?
NightValien28: they don't have music options?
Simonark: I assume this song is a mission statement to never ever take itself too seriously
Talin06: ah Kojima at it again
Mangledpixel: the loud music is probably part of his artistic vision
TheMerricat: why so serious?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: They play key songs when you arent in danger and are coming up upon scenic vistas
SachielOne: Goddamn artistes.
Rhynerd: Kojima really wanted you to hear this song he likes.
Pteraspidomorphi: Don't be so serious, ContingentCat
CaptainSpam: I'm sort of worried that the VOD might be absolutely hosed.
RvLeshrac: I don't think the music is actually "louder" than the game, it just intentionally overpowers the game when it comes on at times.
NightValien28: that fecking sucks
TehAmelie: if you can keep shouting over the music it will probably help confuse the youtube copyright bots. . .
LordZarano: That makes sense why the hair turned grey when the "timefall" hit it then
Max_Mckayful: Just like movies with bad dialogue - soundtrack balacne
EvilBadman: @JadedCynic MANY console games have independent audio sliders too. It's based on game.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: its really not 'louder' if you were in a fight that would be too loud too
NightValien28: RvLeshrac it is a bit louder than paul though
fcloud: paul can control his voice volume against the game, he just cant control game music vs game sfx
RvLeshrac: The game will likewise be "too loud," yeah, what ashiok said.
JadedCynic: @CaptainSpam yeah, the cut-rate ContentID knock off that twitch uses surely WON'T false-positive this :D
RvLeshrac: Changing the speaker type might help.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the lack of in game adjustment is an issue across console games
aWabbajack: brave new Paul
Anubis169: audible censorship?
keroan0: I could go for a louder Paul
serialtram: yeah, the music is making it a bit hard to hear you
UnboundLaconicness: You're a bit difficult to hear over the game music, Paul
Sly_chocobo: The msuic is just *really* loud for whatever reason
winterstretch: you are a bit too quiet compared to the game atm
NightValien28: yeah that is the issue, sound effect fine, the music is loud
ArcOfTheConclave: iirc, not yet
CaptainSpam: Music is overpowering you a bit, yeah.
TXC2: Paul is fine for the game, just not the music :p
JadedCynic: @EvilBadman if this was developed on PC first, it'd never get released with such 'options'
Genie_M: no, you can scan as much as you want
TheThromborax: watch it for moving
Thatwasademo: it's full of bloooooood
RvLeshrac: I don't want to belabor the point, but you probably won't really know if the game is too loud until later when there are actual loud sounds.
EvilBadman: @JadedCynic You don't know that and you're perpetuating really dumb PC is better stuff.
JadedCynic: @SachielOne blood for the blood porter ;)
TheThromborax: (stupid phone) Look out for MOVING water
TehAmelie: oh damn, i was watching in 480p for some reason. i thought the game lacked a certain je next gen sai
NightValien28: define big
MTGRanger: The environments are really pretty though
Genie_M: well, you're fine until ~100kg
Theycallmejokke: Slaps top of Norman Reedis, this guy can hold SO many boxes
TheMerricat: ok game does seem a bit loud here sans music
ashiok_nightmare_moose: they let you try to carry some OSHA non compliant loads lol
ashiok_nightmare_moose: imo dont get to wrapped up in collecitng stuff now
Max_Mckayful: @MTGRanger Agreed. Sooooooo scenic. I love it :)
Genie_M: yep, and you will feel that
JadedCynic: oh yeah, that's gonna be a thing, and yeah, we'll get there paul
Genie_M: you really don't have to collect all the cargo you see
Anubis169: reminded of those assistive limb suits used for heavy lifting :D
RvLeshrac: The "best" thing might be to adjust the speakers to Headphones instead, to reduce the range, then fiddle with volume.
neisan2112: You also only NEED 1 piece of cargo to take in.
Scy_Anide: Game audio still rather loud compared to Paul.
TehAmelie: would be funny if you could learn to balance like 300 kg on your head like the real champions of carrying stuff, but then only on pretty flat ground
RvLeshrac: Dynamic range on the "Speaker" setting is going to go from extremely quiet to super loud.
niccus: none of these walking/running animations work really well for head-carrying, so that might be the reason
Anubis169: a little
Mangledpixel: yeh, Paul's voice could use a boost
Izandai: Yes
kalira77: i mean, he's near a waterfall
TheMerricat: yes to loud
NiallF: yeah, you stepped on that dead deer and didn't even comment
HavenJunde: yes that deer was there before
serialtram: nice
wench_tacular: nice
nyperold: Oh deer,
Anubis169: oh deer...
Izandai: nice
TXC2: Nice
JohnLockeCole: I mean it's about right I'd say, could maybe be a tidge quieter
Theycallmejokke: Cave deer didn't make it, F
Anubis169 huggles nyperold
TheMerricat: nice
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun yeah, the dead deer was there the first time - you walked by it (it was on the fringe of view)
fcloud: maybe twiddle "sound output optimization" to something other than "speaker"?
Izandai: He walked over it, in fact.
RvLeshrac: Oh deer.
Genie_M: it show up when needed
TehAmelie: you're not consuming ANY stamina going up that hill with that backpack? impressive
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac that's a good point - the O/S will have volume controls, the hardware ('phones) will have controls, and I'm sure paul's mixing apps/hardware will give options, too...
NightValien28: why grab with different hands?
RvLeshrac: Game has an immersive UI. I believe you can adjust it in the options if you want to see things more often.
wench_tacular: sell it on ebay
Genie_M: go to city
serialtram: i assume you're supposed to go towards the city?
Alahmnat: I assume you head for the towers?
catfoo123: HELLO
neisan2112: Just head towards the buildings
saucemaster5000: throw a fancy picnic?
Genie_M: deliver
Mangledpixel: it's deliberately unclear, I think
TXC2: NightValien28 you can carry stuff in hands, so one might be full
fcloud: paul, just do what all the other lrrians do: have paul fix it
Genie_M: you're a delivery person - deliver
JadedCynic: Ah, The City....*my* The City
NightValien28: TXC2 ooh
frnknstn: can you get your bike back?
SurfDownstage: What was the city name they were labeled with?
TXC2: Hello catfoo123 welcome
TheMerricat: nature sounds or the sounds of your scanner
catfoo123: YAYAYAYAAY
Alahmnat: I think it's your scanner beeping?
PsychoI3oy: i think it's the echoes of your scan
SK__Ren: I really should finish playing this game
Genie_M: you scan echo?
JadedCynic: @frnknstn Not really - it'd be up that cataract/canyon against the fairly strong river
ashiok_nightmare_moose: your near range thing is picking up the bugs at the cliff side
TehAmelie: random hypothetical question, can you put stuff down and come back for it later?
PsychoI3oy: yes
TheExactSame: we're very grunty
ContingentCat: cool technology
JadedCynic: Sam's getting fed up with you? ;)
electric_claire: Our main character sounds like a horse
josh___something: Very deep grunts
UnboundLaconicness: There sure are a good variety of exertion noises to be found...
SK__Ren: Its very real life too.

wench_tacular: sober up there!
FoxBoxGamers: currently more of a mule @electric_claire
PsychoI3oy: tehamelie, there's some built in options for doing that
Theycallmejokke: Nice save
JadedCynic: leaning back while climbing down - keeping that center of weight in the right axis for intended motion
Max_Mckayful: Ooof, amazed we didn't pull an ankle there. Yay Sam!
Genie_M: you can do such great faceplants downhill
frnknstn: Authentic Reedus Grunts (TM)
RvLeshrac: <Kojima> I need to record more grunts. <Reedus> For the game? <Kojima> ... <Reedus> ? <Kojima> ... yes ...
ashiok_nightmare_moose: this is a big leap forward in reacting to the terrain REALLY matters with bigger loads
TheMerricat: has reedus been in anything since this?
TehAmelie: maybe they got some of the horse designer people from RDR2 to work on this. hopefully just the sound. . .
ashiok_nightmare_moose: all those tiny rocks arent jsut for show
JadedCynic: yeah, Sam berated me for my backtracking, too *blush*
Mangledpixel: to quote my grandfather, "Careful, these rocks are slippy, mind you don't fall AHHH!"
JohnLockeCole: so who is this reedus guy, they called the character bridges?
josh___something: @frnknstn There's something very cursed about the term "Authentic Reedus Grunts"
RvLeshrac: TheMerricat: Walking Dead.
TheThromborax: oh the map! the map is such a big part of this game
josh___something: was... was that a pee option?
wench_tacular: thank you game
Theycallmejokke: Bonus package, maximum greed mode!
JadedCynic: Norman Reedus plays 'Sam Porter Bridges' - first big acting break in "Teh Walking Dead"
TheMerricat: @rvleshrac I thought he left WD?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: scanner is only near range
Thatwasademo: the scanner is more about terrain and nearby things
wench_tacular: greed is good
TheThromborax: @josh___something everyone pees, it's okay
Anubis169: can do, but careful of the water
Theycallmejokke: absolutely
NightValien28: greed never hurt anyone go for it
Anubis169: the physicsc on the moss is real
Angreed66: Personally if I was in this time rain scenario I'd always have my hood up.
neisan2112: Just tumbling down a hill with like 3x the # of packages is uh horrifying.
Frankenfruity: lrrGREED is good
Anubis169: physics*
TehAmelie: a courier in the spacefuture would have such a cool HUD and never ever get lost. until it decides to download a firmware update. . .
10of9: lrrGREED
Genie_M: scan water
JadedCynic: oh hey, we're making progress, we're finishing the opening credits
Izandai: You can scan the water to see the depth.
wench_tacular: hmmm, this looks bad
RvLeshrac: TheMerricat: I think he was in more WD between.
serialtram: looks like that dam(?) there is a way across?
Anubis169: nah not worth it
Alahmnat: river go fast
ashiok_nightmare_moose: don forget to scan for the danger rating
Emergent_OS: Paul, can your headphones use Surround Sound? Can you determine the spatial origin of the sounds in the environment?
Thatwasademo: you can always scan
NeoSilverThorn: Definitely not worth it.
Genie_M: scanner works
RvLeshrac: Caulk the wagon.
Milocw: why not use the bridge up ahead?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yup and red is v bad
Genie_M: it's blue it's fine
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie shhhh, I wouldn't put it past Kojima to watch streams of his games and take ideas and then release 'an update' :D
Genie_M: yellow is scary
CaptainSpam: Y'know, if I were to be responsible for a large-budget game, just as a joke, I'd time it out so that the credits-during-the-intro-gameplay continue to the end of the game. Kappa
Genie_M: red is dangerous
RvLeshrac: CaptainSpam: So, FFXIII
MTGRanger: @captainspam that’s an amazing idea
DrSpookPHD subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 43 months, currently on a 43 month streak!
DrSpookPHD: say yes yes to martini & rossi on the rocks say yes
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, DrSpookPHD! (Today's storm count: 33)
Despoiler98: Dont worry about it paul
Anubis169: well...
TXC2: "should I be concerned?" "yes"
Anubis169: don't worry about it
FoxBoxGamers: they got caught in the timefall
wench_tacular: they're just slackers
TehAmelie: eh, it's good freelance delivery business
Theycallmejokke: Nah, everything is fiiine :D
Anubis169: lrrFINE
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @CaptainSpam it sort of does as they introduce characters
Thatwasademo: I'm sure everything is fine
n_mandrag: nooo..... EVERYTHING is FINE
josh___something: Dont worry bout it
Brozard: All these lost packages but no lost bikes
ArcOfTheConclave: Im sure it's fine
RvLeshrac: So you don't HAVE to pick up these packages. But it is a nice thing to do.
Frankenfruity: Incompetence, paul, on their part
TheMerricat: @captainspam that _would_ be such a Kojima thing to do too
JadedCynic: asian color schemes - red is not 'dangerous' but just a fact - ground relief
MyBuddySuperfly: wheeeee
Max_Mckayful: Job security baby.
Izandai: I do like that collecting lost packages restores your stamina.
fcloud: hey, is that where we're going?
MTGRanger: lrrFINE
NightValien28: maybe they are like UPS they chuck their packages into the wild and said they delivered it
Manae: Stack UP, Sam! Not out!
JohnLockeCole: I mean the other deliverypeople died in the wilderness, aye?
wench_tacular: everything is fine!
Sanityis0verrated: yeah they suck
10of9: lrrFINE
Genie_M: waiting for the first downhill faceplant
TehAmelie: i'm just assuming they all were QUITTERS
nyperold: @CaptainSpam Maybe the voice credit for a character comes when the character is introduced?
n_mandrag: Did you see your paycheck yet ? Yeah- they didn't like it
NightValien28: knocked on door no response, YEET package, the UPS way
UponMyOath: @rvleshrac as I understand it, that’s the thesis statement of the game
Anubis169: holy crap, i've done that mistake IRL :/
JadedCynic: that convo you had with Fragile - she said a lot of couriers are giving up
Angreed66: It's a kojima game art takes precedent over logic.
Scy_Anide: Maybe they're feral packages and you're rescuing them from the wild.
wench_tacular: sway those hips
neisan2112: You can carry in your hands
Theycallmejokke: There is no such thing, don't listen to the game Paul
Genie_M: this is not yet "too much cargo"
Alahmnat: at least they don't make you use tilt controls?
Thatwasademo: I'm sure that tip is just showing up for no reason, it's fine
tenthtechpriest: surely the reason is gross negligence
TehAmelie: heh this is already so far beyond the most ridiculous "dad carrying all the shopping in from the car in one go or die trying" levels
UponMyOath: @angreed66 disagree. He just doesn’t use regular people logic. It’s all consistent in the game, I think
Genie_M: safe zone
MyBuddySuperfly: line is the dlc? XD
josh___something: Line looks like a fence
Thatwasademo: that's the city wall
wench_tacular: mime time
Thatwasademo: you can go in just fine, the rain can't
Thatwasademo: or maybe not?
JadedCynic: also our avatar is 'the man who delivers' - we ALWAYS come through
Thatwasademo: now I'm confused
Max_Mckayful: Use barrier skip like Zelda ;)
nyperold: It's those walls from the Animus.
wench_tacular: you don't need those ankles
JadedCynic: the people who live here want people to arrive ONLY where they desingate
lirazel64: If you lose your balance on a flat street, you're... me?
Genie_M: unless you HAVE to run
JadedCynic: it's a 'gated community'
Thatwasademo: ah, right, you have to use the actual gate
Thatwasademo: so they can scan you through security
Thatwasademo: now everything's coming back to me
TehAmelie: did the prompt say you're supposed to bounce your thumb off the button like unto a rubber ball?
RvLeshrac: Real talk: The entire game makes consistent logical sense within the story framework, and saying otherwise outside of the usual "lol Kojima" memeing is just kind of wilfully being a dick to game writers.
TheThromborax: @thatwasademo there are other things in this world besides rain
LurkerSpine: where are the guards?
Mangledpixel: my guess is they only care about the cargo
NojhLivic: Yeah Kojima games may not be grounded in reality, but he makes an effort to go several layers deep with his explanations for why things happen. It's just those explanations also tend to be hidden deep in the optional lore.
RvLeshrac: But going into specifics about things is spoilers.
Anubis169: RvLeshrac: Agreed, a LOT of love and effort went into the consistency of this universe
CaptainSpam: Checkpoint! ...wait, no, this is a literal checkpoint.
wench_tacular: buttons 101
Alahmnat: conceptual tutorials
QuietJay: hold down a button by holding down a button
RvLeshrac: This has one of the best tutorial sets I've played through.
Max_Mckayful: @RvLeshrac Well said
Rustpile: oh hai Paul
fcloud: holding down buttons: press button and do not release
ashiok_nightmare_moose: took me a while to see they put tinya rrows above the button indicators
Thatwasademo: this all looks good
PixelArtDragon: This was a Crapshot, involving a lightswitch
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac is right - if you keep an open mind, and pay attention, the game WILL explain all this and begin to have internal consistency, but it's not something easily explained in a brief statement....
UponMyOath: This game is more metaphorical than Metal Gear, too, and a lot of folks have a limited literacy for that, I think
TheThromborax: the game narrative is consistent but the bedrock info is very sparsely delivered
10of9: I like that he is apparently going all over the place for abandoned packages, but does not make any attempt to recover or salvage is really cool motorcycle. lol
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @LoadingReadyRun that screen is so poitnless the answer is always "deliver all"
JadedCynic: near miss
Genie_M: hi Mom!
saucemaster5000: next mission: complete a delivery of idiot drugs
RvLeshrac: The answer is only usually "deliver all," but there are rare reasons to not.
LurkerSpine: handcuffs?
TheExactSame: great work is not a tip
Despoiler98: why does everyone have handcuffs?
Max_Mckayful: Help me Sam Wan Reddobi, you're my only hope
SK__Ren: Kept you waiting, huh? gdi Kojima
Jasoman: Norman Reedus and the freaky feetus!!
JadedCynic: there's a reason for that
RvLeshrac: For like 99% of players the UI is irrelevant, though, yes.
TehAmelie: maybe it's a family business and you're the heir
The_Color_Twelve: maybe you changed your name after they hired you
Genie_M: there's a reason for that
rustenskurk: Look Kojima names aren't subtle
MyBuddySuperfly: oh, no retweets? :(
Carlioo: look if you start questioning names now we're gonna be here all week
Anubis169: You too the scenic route
thetoastmonster: Your name is Porter, you work for Porter, your job title is Porter.
X_modem: That's just the tip of the name fun iceberg.
NightValien28: Sawesome
Thatwasademo: Sawesome.
Critterbot: A W E S O M E
fcloud: we did it! we delivered the package. game over, we win
JadedCynic: those cargo containers take a LOT of punishment - there was rusty spots on some of them, but didn't rust TRHOUGH
TehAmelie: S, the letter that comes before A in the alphabet!
CanPlayGames: I'd wanna work for Planet Express, where I know the bar isn't set high and that I'm expendable
Alahmnat: job gameification has really gone too far
ashiok_nightmare_moose: !card Lizard Warrior
LRRbot: Lizard Warrior [3R] | Creature — Lizard Warrior [4/2]
nyperold: "I got confused and thought my scanner noise was something else... maybe I shouldn't have told you that, huh?"
NojhLivic: Saucesome!
TheMerricat: @despoiler98 in the future people are way more open about their kinks....
Despoiler98: So are likes our currency?
Theycallmejokke: Time for celebratory Monster Energy drink
JadedCynic: Yep, Despoiler
NightValien28: I kinda dislike how slow all those stats are
JadedCynic: likes == fiat currency
rustenskurk: I'd love to see Paul take Brian David Gilbert's Kojima name generator :D
TehAmelie: i feel like likes would be prone to a lot of inflation
neisan2112: You can skip all of it
Thatwasademo: presumably the people receiving the cargo
tenthtechpriest: remember to like favorite and subscribe
fcloud: you can speed through this if you want, there's a button that just slaps it all up there
Critterbot: Yes.
FoxBoxGamers: new from facebook-- likecoin
MTGRanger: Yeah the Kohima name generator would be fun for lrr
saucemaster5000: like, y'know, whatever
Genie_M: there will be much liking
Angreed66: Money irl is really just trust given units
TXC2: Likes are cpyto aren't they? :p
CaptainSpam: Apparently in the future apocalypse world of the death rain, we still cannot escape the dark specter of social media.
Genie_M: no, there's a limit
Alahmnat: @FoxBoxGamers you joke but...
MyBuddySuperfly: Snad!
PixelArtDragon: Are "likes" NFTs?
FoxBoxGamers: @PixelArtDragon oh god
Carnevale_Guy: Likes are closer to XP in the game's mechanics
Thatwasademo: no, because they're clearly fungible
TheThromborax: @pixelartdragon yes
Despoiler98: did he just nope out on that?
NightValien28: sure did
Thatwasademo: and yeah, they act more like XP than like currency
TehAmelie: i mean i would literally take 40 likes on my blog over 40 cryptodollars
Genie_M: he's not really that kind
wench_tacular: well someone has jacked their ride up
UponMyOath: @captainspam part of the metaphor is there’s good and bad ways to engage with social media, too
Alahmnat: that seems dangerously top-heavy
BusTed: sweet ride
NightValien28: steal it
JadedCynic: Bridges
NightValien28: kill him take his car
FoxBoxGamers: I would NOT feel good about getting out of that while the pneumatics are running
X_modem: Snoop Dog walks out.
MyBuddySuperfly: ah, the M35 Mako
Theycallmejokke: giraffe car
Max_Mckayful: Let's "West Wing" it
Tehbeard: @MyBuddySuperfly It does not look to be as stable as the Mako though.
TehAmelie: the car does look like a giraffe designed it
CanPlayGames: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE
neisan2112: I feel that's not the highest #
Thatwasademo: turns out corpse disposal is very important for reasons
TheThromborax: corpses are a *problem* in this world
wench_tacular: why are there seats in a corpse disposal vehicle
PsychoI3oy: corpse disposal is Very Imprtant Business
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun there's other vehicles of the same type to the left of this one, in a parking lot
Genie_M: you'll have lore soon
FoxBoxGamers: awfully big truck for one body.... and strapped down...
Emergent_OS: Paul, are you playing with online components active, or strictly in the offline mode?
Sanityis0verrated: but who disposes the disposal team
MTGRanger: That’s a lot of corpses for one bridge.
FoxBoxGamers: go... WHAT
RvLeshrac: Playing without online enabled would be insanity.
Anubis169: yeah...
RvLeshrac: You'd never get anything done.
MyBuddySuperfly: @Tehbeard or as powerful Kappa
josh___something: That's a LOT of capital words
HavenJunde: this is a lot of words :D
TacitusVigil: Have we stranded death yet?
TXC2: "today at 11" "DOOOMS!"
fcloud: @HavenJunde it's a kojima joint
Genie_M: not subtle kojima
UponMyOath: I assume the mods have done this, but probably worth noting this game has a couple of big content warnings for suicide
Thatwasademo: explosions, you say?
Sunrise_Laro: We just need someone like you with NOUNS!
Thatwasademo: almost like explosions are a theme
MTGRanger: we Need DOOMS!
NojhLivic: Man I'm so mixed on if I'd want to have DOOMS or not in that world.
Anubis169: UponMyOath: We're aware, thankies lrrHEART
FoxBoxGamers: get ready for WEIRD
wench_tacular: that ain't right
BusTed: I love all this assumed knowledge.
Despoiler98: EEEEEWWWW
niccus: it's a baby!
neisan2112: Baby time!
MyBuddySuperfly: that's... not ilegal?
NightValien28: childe
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB
TXC2: ah, the funky fetus
Sanityis0verrated: um
ashiok_nightmare_moose: bb
CanPlayGames: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrSPOOP
Saulens181: Ah, good ol' Hideo Kojima.
Despoiler98: UM NO THANKS
Alahmnat: um?
MyBuddySuperfly: wow, that's totally ilegal
Sanityis0verrated: explain
serialtram: what the bus
e_bloc: hi BB
CaptainSpam: @TacitusVigil *hard cut to Death, waiting at an airport for you to pick him up* "Aw, geez..." :p
neisan2112: It makes since eventually
Max_Mckayful: Welcome to your new reality
Tehbeard: Lucozade mecha-womb(tm)
fcloud: wassup bridge baby!
niccus: well, not makes sense, just explained
EvilBadman: "explain" Kojima, "no."
ArcOfTheConclave: tall car is so silly
Anubis169: Welcome to this reality, where things are different
Anubis169: buckle up
MTGRanger: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE
PixelArtDragon: Bridge Baby vs Threshold Kid
RvLeshrac: Hey, I have one of those.
TXC2: why does the car needs to be jacked up so high?
TacitusVigil: @CaptainSpam They know what they did!
ashiok_nightmare_moose: They do want you to do all the missions to get all the explanation
Kaorti: @CaptainSpam we could not stop for death.
Sly_chocobo: See babys are the cloest thing between life and death... somehow?
Alahmnat: lol @PixelArtDragon
MyBuddySuperfly: sit down, you must be tired
RvLeshrac: Best CE I own :p
ashiok_nightmare_moose: but its kojima so theres only so much
Sly_chocobo: Or... something...
Genie_M: they're unborn babies
JadedCynic: for the record - 'anglo' names have ALWAYS been profession-based - "Miller" "Smith" "Hunter" - Makes sense that Sam would start working with a company named Porter and take their name for his
TehAmelie: hmm how much air would you need to burn a body in an enclosed space? probably less than like a hockey stadium
Sanityis0verrated: it's schrodinger's baby
FoxBoxGamers: @TXC2 better to keep us in suspense
ArgentumFlare: I like Kojima games but hooo boy is there a bunch of word salad
TXC2 Stares in Post office
Caldurin: imagine visiting other countries
Max_Mckayful: Yeah, this guy didn't live through 2020
tenthtechpriest: imagine visiting other countries
JohnLockeCole: I remember visiting other countries
Critterbot: They said the thing! Roll credits!
ContingentCat: that didn't age great
lirazel64: Ah, the before times...
FoxBoxGamers: I remember visiting people
JadedCynic: remember - this was PRE-quarantine....AWKWARD
Mangledpixel: TXC2 I feel like questions like that either have a really long and complex explanation, or absolutely no explanation at all beyond 'Kojima though it would look cool'
n_mandrag: p...e...o...p...l...e ?
fcloud: @Mangledpixel or both!
TXC2: Mangledpixel imdeed
TacitusVigil: And then we came up with dumb names for everything that happened.
Orgmastron: This game really hits different in COVID times
Taveena: "thank you for explaining my job to me"
lostluckDev: Weird exposition moment there.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: this is kind of the skyrim intro
ArcOfTheConclave: Exposition!
Alahmnat: I assume the B in BT stands for Beach
Mangledpixel: fcloud ah, yes
nyperold: I've seen cars sort of like that in Walmart. I assume they don't typically go this fast, though.
lostluckDev: Necessary, but... very odd that he's telling sam.
MyBuddySuperfly: what about a double rainbow?
MTGRanger: This world has invisible monkeys, explosive dead people, time rain, and baby who are also magic batteries
FoxBoxGamers: uh... off the bottom of screen
LurkerSpine: RIP double rainbow guy
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you can control camera btw
BusTed: mattlrHeck
MyBuddySuperfly: so intense
josh___something: wh... what is a BT? has it been explained?
Despoiler98: OH Dear
wench_tacular: that seems bad
MyBuddySuperfly: that's... normal
Anubis169: josh___something: We've just started
Taveena: "We're gonna have to cut through the BTs!" "What about the Lettuce?" "THERE'S NO TIME!"
Thatwasademo: lrrFINE
Alahmnat: lrrFINE
Mangledpixel: josh___something I think it was those invisible things from earlier
fcloud: BTs havent been explained yet
DeM0nFiRe: lrrFINE
Theycallmejokke: We have a small... ehm leak?
JadedCynic: Rainbow means there's rain between us and the sun...that chiral 'stuff' that is in the rain...
BlueMechanic: I hate when the corpse starts leaking upwards
NeoSilverThorn: lrrFINE
MTGRanger: just fire the bodies into space lrrBEEJ
JonTheGoose: the dead body appears to be leaking
Saulens181: yes.
UponMyOath: You don’t want me to let out the black smoke
JadedCynic: "fine, do you FEEL anything?"
BusTed: It's going necro!
UponMyOath: *em
FoxBoxGamers: so if the corpses detonate now for reasons... timefall makes them extremely dangerous... why is this truck not covered?
MyBuddySuperfly: Bebé
MTGRanger: Is this..... normal rain?
Kaorti: is black smoke better or worse than blue smoke?
wench_tacular: turn baby off and back on again?
ContingentCat: dang babies no work ethic
fcloud: all rain is magical danger rain
Aenir798: slacker baby
ArgentumFlare: Have you tried turning your baby off and back on
EvilBadman: No no no, don't shake the baby
josh___something: @Anubis169 Fair... but also, that term has come up so many times that I thought it was previously explained
PixelArtDragon: !advice
LRRbot: Avoid the Pew Pews.
fcloud: can you send me a screenshot of the baby
NightValien28: do not percussive maintenance the baby
TehAmelie: black smoke is the worst of all, if i know anything about wrestling
Alahmnat: ow
fcloud: can i remote into your baby for troubleshooting purposes
Despoiler98: WELP
TheMerricat: what scares me a bit is the bed of these trucks aren't designed for moving bodies, the walls are lined with seats....
josh___something: F
Genie_M: and now you all die
Mangledpixel: that doesn't seem good
Thatwasademo: F
MyBuddySuperfly: cool game. The end
Theycallmejokke: woopsy doodle
FoxBoxGamers: well lets hope we landed face down
Despoiler98: welp game over
FoxBoxGamers: otherwise we dead
TXC2: and that's why low clearance matter
Anubis169: josh___something: Normally in Kojima games, they throw you right in at the deep end, and have clever writing to reveal it
ArgentumFlare: Final Pam Voice "I will fiiiiiix the baby"
e_bloc: time for crab I guess
wench_tacular: well we found the crabs
Sly_chocobo: Smashcut to bleached white skeleton :P
MTGRanger: Crabs acquired
NojhLivic: Crabs, evolution's favorite
Izandai: I would want a mask.
FoxBoxGamers: yeah helmets > hoods
Conrii: I am shocked and amazed that tall car experienced issues at the slightest impact.
josh___something: I was not familiar With Kojima's works
Sanityis0verrated: rule #1 keep your blood inside your body
TacitusVigil: Yeah, you'd need a full isolation suit
NimrodXIV: that's red glitter
wench_tacular: i hate glitter!
NightValien28: neither does an umbrella but that doesn't stop fragile
serialtram: i think the corpse when boom
serialtram: went*
Despoiler98: oooooo thats some missing legs
OldManJohnsonMB: Faces are known for their disease-resistant properties, Paul. You know this, as a scientist
JadedCynic: the gradual build-up these chiral particles that people end up injesting is comong out now that the human isn't living and (hypothesis - electrical fields from our brains and nervous system is 'stabilizing' them? so when you die, you have this big reservoir of 'bad stuff' in a body that's going to .....
TehAmelie: next time let's get a car designed by humans and not giraffes ok
Genie_M: glitter is boom stuff
MyBuddySuperfly: dont push it like that, dammit
ArgentumFlare: Is that Yuri lowenthal screaming on the ground?
fcloud: yeah a hermetic seal would make more sense. but then we wouldnt get to see famous actor face
Thatwasademo: oh no, the antenna is flapping
MTGRanger: Glitter nuked
NightValien28: fcloud we could if it was transparent
FoxBoxGamers: flappy scanner
Sly_chocobo: I think if your worried about noise that flappy thing is a dead giveaway..
josh___something: XD paul
wench_tacular: not brething isn't really a solution
Sanityis0verrated: should have covered his face
Thatwasademo: the flappy thing isn't the right sort of noise, I guess
fcloud: @NightValien28 well thats true
Thatwasademo: which would make sense, considering the purpose of said flappy thing
TehAmelie: when will the ghostbusters designe a PKE with a reasonably small spinny part?
JadedCynic: @Sanityis0verrated well Igor was trying to shield him....
electric_claire: Why would you go anywhere without a full hazmat suit
FoxBoxGamers: I feel like the scanner doesn't bother them since it's not a living thing?
Genie_M: it's breath, not noise
Despoiler98: OH NOOOOOO
ArgentumFlare: Meanwhile, their uncovered friend has probably aged into dust
JadedCynic: time to run
wench_tacular: sir? sir!
TacitusVigil: Do we have any idea why anything is happening yet?
neisan2112: Fun times!
breathlessisthehunt: Dont like that
Sanityis0verrated: ruuuuuuunnnn
fcloud: it's adam smith's invisible hand! run
Alahmnat: that's... probably fine?
BusTed: So much for incineration.
NavelWarfare: Totally normal corpse behavior
NojhLivic: Well that's not good
Mangledpixel: maybe it only reacts to human sounds (somehow) like how the one before didn't go for the deer
MyBuddySuperfly: oh, hum
JadedCynic: now we have ANOTHER 'BT'
wench_tacular: it'll never get back to us
fcloud: didnt explode after all
Theycallmejokke: That's probably fine
OldManJohnsonMB: Nothing scarier than hand-feet
Despoiler98: Sam bleeds glitter?
TXC2: Chiron clamies it's own
Tom_Bruise: "We're sorry we couldn't recover Devlin's bodily remains, he just kinda... sunk? into the ground?"
josh___something: Red glitter
Genie_M: lots of problem
Rhynerd: Corpse is a ghost now. Bigger problem
MTGRanger: Could you imagine this game with that Xbox add on that hears sounds you make and modifies the game accordingly
CanPlayGames: Chop Leg
Sanityis0verrated: noooo99 our glitter
Genie_M: corpse is handy now
PixelArtDragon: Ohhh, it's blood, but mixing it with the rain is making it coagulate much much faster
TheExactSame: no like
wench_tacular: that seems deeply unpleasent
JadedCynic: bye yuri
CanPlayGames: Use the Baby
FoxBoxGamers: there, we helped.
TehAmelie: where's Yuna when you need her to send the ghosties
serialtram: f
wench_tacular: oh look, they got him out
MyBuddySuperfly: oh, they helped!
Tom_Bruise: That's help, right?
NightValien28: take the shot
OldManJohnsonMB: good thing that gun shot wasn't very loud
FoxBoxGamers: uh
TXC2: yeah, that's a big nope from me dawg :p
Despoiler98: And he can just casual fly ok
CanPlayGames: Hello
fcloud: wow good shot
wench_tacular: save us space jesus
Genie_M: yep
TacitusVigil: Did...that man just fly in?
FoxBoxGamers: UH
Genie_M: but a bit delayed problem
Tom_Bruise: oh no, now the truck's gonna die
TehAmelie: these tar pits are hungry
JadedCynic: the tide is coming in.....
MyBuddySuperfly: Bebê is annoyed
TacitusVigil: Well, that person I should say.
TheExactSame: "throw baby"
TehAmelie: man you got tar all over the baby
JadedCynic: living and the the edge of the water....
MTGRanger: @tacitusvigil don’t worry he has a magic baby battery he’s fine
wench_tacular: sir? your gravity is broken
CanPlayGames: Oh no! The baby bomb didn't work
ArgentumFlare: I think he was probably dead anyway. Thats more of a mercy killing
JadedCynic: crap, missed...
Sanityis0verrated: it only cares about sounds of meat bags not mechs
BusTed: seabatYIKES
Anubis169: lrrSPOOP
josh___something: Jesus
Despoiler98: Needed a longer knife dude
Mangledpixel: they all float, down here
FoxBoxGamers: desperately trying to die before.... a thing happens?
Theycallmejokke: yikes
CanPlayGames: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Kaorti: hell of a way to go
KartoffelKaiser: i was not aware of how fucked up this game is
TXC2: shit went sideways REAL fast
MyBuddySuperfly: "wow, maybe I should do something about that"
KartoffelKaiser: huh
Sanityis0verrated: why not your jugular my dude
Genie_M: yeah, game starts heavy
FoxBoxGamers: UM
Anubis169: he must've been so effing scared of what he thought was coming :/
fcloud: heres a thing that i dont think is ever explained but looks really cool
JadedCynic: and thanks to the scanner.....we see
wench_tacular: that's a big lad!!!
Theycallmejokke: Oh that is a big boy
OldManJohnsonMB: "Expedition log, Day 27: Some seriously weird shit just happened, and I think I'll need more time to process it. But: free baby!"
Tehbeard: oh heck nope
n_mandrag: Craaaaabs
Despoiler98: oh this problem got WAY BIGGER
josh___something: neat
Tom_Bruise: So this is hell? Not as fiery as I expected
MyBuddySuperfly: nice, nice!
electric_claire: Probably should've taken Sam's advice, my dude
ashiok_nightmare_moose: big kaboom
Anubis169: well... :S
TehAmelie: that escalated hard and fast
JadedCynic: and that's the stuff in the one body we were trying to deliver...
BlueMechanic: I have quetions
NojhLivic: And that was the first time I died.
MyBuddySuperfly: long arms? No! Long fingers!
CanPlayGames: Anyone else feel like Kojima just wants to make weird "movies"
FoxBoxGamers: fractal hands
ArgentumFlare: 'Ultra Big Boy's all mine'
NeoSilverThorn: Huh
Genie_M: yep
EvilBadman: @CanPlayGames What do you think his games are Kappa
TehAmelie: wow, but aren't we on like the 34th time we died now?
fcloud: i feel like kojima and scp should work together on something
Thatwasademo: and now time for some sort of metaphor
MyBuddySuperfly: Jacob, keep your shirt on
nyperold: It's like Deadly Premonition. Or Spirited Away. Hold your breath so they can't see you.
NavelWarfare: @tom_bruise Depending on your poet of choice, as little as 1/9 of hell is actively on fire
Kaorti: @CanPlayGames pretty sure it's widely known.
wench_tacular: why is he covered in handprints?
JadedCynic: @CanPlayGames yeah, and what do you think he's DOING? :D
Genie_M: he died
josh___something: How many times does this game take off sam's shirt?
Mysticman89: this is how babies are made
PixelArtDragon: Lost our shirt AND PANTs
Sanityis0verrated: why are we nakef
Izandai: Oddly enough, it barely makes more sense in the actual game.
JohnLockeCole: I am all in on "Why don't these people just Live in Sealed Suits/Sealed Vehicles
OldManJohnsonMB: Naked Man Simulator: 2019
JadedCynic: it takes a while to make more sense...
fcloud: sam, we need to see your pectorals at all times, understand? if we can see your naked butt, thats even better
ArgentumFlare: Well that whole crash scene was in one of the trailers
Genie_M: it will in 30+ hours
josh___something: Wait, nvm... your pants also went byebye
neisan2112: Very much a wait and see game
NightValien28: FEESH
BusTed: Holy mackeral.
PixelArtDragon: Oh we're JAFFA!
wench_tacular: that's quite the framing
Sanityis0verrated: uh oh baby went rouge
JadedCynic: yeah, give it like a few streams....
Alahmnat: this all seems extremely fine and normal and good
FoxBoxGamers: that was some DANGEROUS framing
TheMerricat: Kojima is just an insider in the SCP trying tonwarn us by leaking docs as games
TehAmelie: is that a full organectomy scar?
ArcOfTheConclave: that's an interesting scar
n_mandrag: "thats a whole lot of fish"
TheExactSame: now to finds clean underwear
KartoffelKaiser: all this, and yet they won't even show us Norman's reedus Kappa
MyBuddySuperfly: BUTT
wench_tacular: butts!
OldManJohnsonMB: his face is remarkably clean
SK__Ren: Buuts
MyBuddySuperfly: sorry
NightValien28: ass
josh___something: Butt
MrSVCD: tos
SachielOne: It's the Hiss!
ArgentumFlare: Confirmed, Norman Reedus does not do Squats.
TehAmelie: oh no, the Godhand
OldManJohnsonMB: Paul: Can you ad a !butt counter for this run?
Tom_Bruise: "Sir, you may be in Hell, but still' No shirt, no shoes, no service"
CAKHost: Have we reach the end already?
CAKHost: :P
Anubis169: Welcome to the game
niccus: oh that's what we're playing
CanPlayGames: Experiance B E E J
Tehbeard: 0/10 - Nudist beach is mainly nude dead sealife.
LurkerSpine: that's the game
fcloud: i've died and gone to a music video
Thatwasademo: oh hi logo
Genie_M: Title.
TehAmelie: now the game truly begins
wench_tacular: and cut
TXC2: this is some Denis Villenuve bullshit :p
Taveena: Well... that was horrifying and bewildering.
lostluckDev: So.... the game's started finally?
azureHaights: Roll credits! *ding*
Genie_M: stream 1
JadedCynic: and dolphins and fish, and....all the 'life' from the ocean...
thetoastmonster: 1h20m in, we've got a title
Mangledpixel: welp, that's the game, goodnight everyone!
PsychoI3oy: an hour and 19 minutes, it's not quite WR territory, but good PB
ArcOfTheConclave: I've gone through the entire game and I'm still not sure who those 5 are.
n_mandrag: @TXC2 no - this is way past Villneuve. This is peak Kojima
josh___something: And creepy kids songs
OldManJohnsonMB: "You'll have to excuse me, Ma'am. I seem to ahve lost my pants
TXC2: hello probably our dead wife :P
MyBuddySuperfly: Fair M'lady
Dandinstorm12: whats up chat
josh___something: Crab
Thatwasademo: hi crabs
JadedCynic: well, we did have a bit of warm up before we started the game
n_mandrag: Moa crabs ma dude
serialtram: really nailing creepy and confusing
fcloud: speaking of falling down, i'm shy one pair of underpants here, little help?
neisan2112: @TXC2 Hey Denis Villenuve makes very well made bullshit
breathlessisthehunt: We return to the sea?
TXC2: hello Dandinstorm12 welcome
X_modem: Woh, This new season of fall guys seems strange...
Sanityis0verrated: why are we covered in hand prints
JadedCynic: giant squids...we rarely see those
BusTed: rayfkKing
ArgentumFlare: I have never worn heels, but wearing heels in sand sounds.... impossible??
Mangledpixel: has London Bridge been sung in any piece of media without it being creepy?
nyperold: I guess "I see London, I see France" isn't really true, is it?
Anubis169 huggles Sanityis0verrated
Thatwasademo: that first step's a doozy
OldManJohnsonMB: He is very calm about drowning. Good for him
TehAmelie: they do look like thick USB key casings
Genie_M: they're fine
Mysticman89: those are actually usb-Sea, and waterproof
MyBuddySuperfly: metaphor
JadedCynic: @Sanityis0verrated long-story short - previous interactions with 'BTs' and 'the other side' and bad stuff - scars if you will
TacitusVigil: I think my metaphors got metaphors in it
Anubis169: Mysticman89: +1 for pun points
JadedCynic: we have a strand
fcloud: they kind of are usb keys, they're important to the plot. more on that later!
ashiok_nightmare_moose: youre in control
fcloud: @Mysticman89 go to pun jail
ArcOfTheConclave: respawn mechanic!
Izandai: Well that's convenient.
TacitusVigil: Game, you gotta give me more than that.
Genie_M: respawn mechanic
azureHaights: In the Seam, find the Strand, pull the Thread, ruin the Sweater
MyBuddySuperfly: oh no
FoxBoxGamers: NONONONO
wench_tacular: nope nope nope
Saulens181: @TacitusVigil legally speaking, it doesn't.
Alahmnat: that was... a lot
Aenir798: ????????????
Izandai: what
The_Color_Twelve: ick
TheThromborax: oh yeah. I remember the first time I saw that
electra310: !!!
serialtram: nope
breathlessisthehunt: Dont like that
NeoSilverThorn: Well.
Tom_Bruise: The game will either give you exactly nothing more, or it's gonna give you everything and more on the whole repatriate thing
Angnor33: Nope. No thank you sir.
MyBuddySuperfly: Bebé
Critterbot: Yooo that's messed up!
OldManJohnsonMB: I don't like that one bit.
Sanityis0verrated: why
kalira77: not. okay.
fcloud: best part of the game right here
CanPlayGames: lrrSPOOP lrrSPOOP lrrSPOOP lrrSPOOP
PixelArtDragon: Oh, we ATE the baby!
Izandai: Oh hey it's this guy.
TXC2: Mads !
OldManJohnsonMB: Dude ate a baby
Alahmnat: oh, hi Mads
JonTheGoose: bebe plz
wench_tacular: hi mads
n_mandrag: and thats how you make your players not want to die in game...
nyperold: Interesting definition of "repatriate".
ArgentumFlare: I love to start my monday with Vore nightmares
wench_tacular: mads is our daddy?
KartoffelKaiser: did he eat the baby?
BlueMechanic: I still have my previous questions but also more questions now
TacitusVigil: No sir, don't like that.
JadedCynic: when most people would just die from this sort of 'afterlife interaction' we became a 'repatriate' - and can 'come back from death' (aka we died in that explosion)
The_Color_Twelve: totally normal thing that just happened
OldManJohnsonMB: On no his hood is down - he's going to get wet!
Anubis169: The game doesn't pull any punches, buckle in chat this isn't nice and safe anymore
TehAmelie: if you are a sovereign citizen, i guess coming back from the dead would be repatriation
TheThromborax: Hideo Kojima has *ideas*
NojhLivic: Man, nightmares while being dead are really trippy.
fcloud: that baby thumbs-up is just the most kojima thing ever
electra310: Nothing about that was good at all
Theycallmejokke: Remember to chew your baby people, or you get guts baby
JadedCynic: tl;dr - Sam is in this world what in the fallout world would be called 'a ghoul' ;)
Genie_M: yes, you died in that boom - and repatriated
Alahmnat: @Anubis169 was it *ever* nice and safe?
Sanityis0verrated: evidently naked land is purgatory
MyBuddySuperfly: now you've got a Bebê 2000 Plus
TheExactSame: does wonders for the skin, apparently
TehAmelie: they did warn us about the craters
Sanityis0verrated: well more of the in between
FoxBoxGamers: ah, that's the crater you mentioned the corpse making
TheThromborax: three dead bodies did that
Genie_M: that's the boom
niccus: (big bang isn't really an explosion)
wench_tacular: corpse go boom
JadedCynic: notice the black strands....
fcloud: bad news, i died and came back to life. good news, i got my clothes back
ArgentumFlare: Big Bada-Boom
MTGRanger: Oh not again
Anubis169: lrrCOW
neisan2112: And that's why we don't want corpses
Izandai: Probably.
niccus: it sure did
JohnLockeCole: nahh, there are always more explosions
TheThromborax: It happened to all of us, Paul
NojhLivic: Yes
Tom_Bruise: Everything happens when it's on a screen
JadedCynic: @niccus well, not like we usually think of as 'explosions'
TXC2: that happened to all of us
TehAmelie: for some values of "happening"
TacitusVigil: This concept art of the Mandalorian stinks
SkylerRingtail: A lot of things just happened
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yup it happened, you respawned
SK__Ren: If you run out of blood, you die.
nm_r0b0t5: so dead bodies bad
OldManJohnsonMB: We all saw it. We cannot unsee it
Thatwasademo: you died, do you want your possessions identified?
TheThromborax: yes, those three wiped out a city
Genie_M: yep, corpse went boom, you died
EvilBadman: I'm so upset Kojima wasn't able to bring this weirdness to Silent Hills
PixelArtDragon: Wait, do we now have to return this baby to its people? Because I've seen this show.
Genie_M: you reborn
fcloud: i feel like we should give the baby a better name
NimrodXIV: I am 0% closer to understanding this game
serialtram: blood belongs inside the body, i hear
RvLeshrac: PixelArtDragon: This is our BB now.
Genie_M: so yeah - don't do corpses
neisan2112: @EvilBadman For real!! It would have been insane and amazing
SkylerRingtail: I appreciate loading screens that let you read the tips
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun well, it devestated the area, and now there's *another* BT going around like the big thing we saw - so that's why we burn our dead (and away from our habitats)
ArgentumFlare: So, since sam can reicarnate or whatever is he just like... a recycleable bomb?
LordZarano: @niccus Neither was the Cambrian Explosian
TehAmelie: the walking simulation has never been more literal
fcloud: later on you can kill people though? and they dont explode?
RvLeshrac: The take-away here is "don't kill anyone"
Anubis169: NimrodXIV: In the same way as some games don't info-dump, this game explains at random points over a slow-burn
wench_tacular: at least he has his shirt on
JadedCynic: at least we got the body out of the blast radius from the city
BusTed: Seems like a fair bet.
Genie_M: yes
RvLeshrac: fcloud: There are an enormous number of spoilers involved in answering that question in any way.
JadedCynic: at the cost of a vehicle and two CDT crew
TheThromborax: Just wait until "I think I just watched Norman Reedus take a dooker"
PixelArtDragon: Also we seem to cry often
breathlessisthehunt: i think we really like his face
Anubis169: yeah no spoilies chat :)
X_modem: Wake me up. inside... I can't wake up....
nyperold: Bridge-t?
Angnor33: So you've just woken up chained to a bed, and not in the good way...
ArgentumFlare: If there's one thing kojima loves its wordplay
NimrodXIV: hey GDT
KartoffelKaiser: "hey, you're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right?"
wench_tacular: that's a comfot
Sanityis0verrated: shitty it feels shitty
electric_claire: Coroners are definitely not doctors
NightValien28: totoro san
neisan2112: Hello "Del Toro"
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon we had Fragile explain that - allergic reaction to 'chiral stuff'
Genie_M: my favourite character
wench_tacular: good name
FoxBoxGamers: ♫ at least you're not dead ♪
electra310: Hi, Deadman
TacitusVigil: No thanks, a regular name will do please.
TheThromborax: Kojimaaaaa!
josh___something: Subtle
ContingentCat: little on the nose
Theycallmejokke: No that is a stupid name
Sanityis0verrated: coroners are doctors
Gr1llMe: this is a very good video game
tenthtechpriest: don't worry, I'm a major character
RvLeshrac: Sadly, this isn't del Toro, because he's got incredibly bad English.
niccus: (it's a metaphor)
josh___something: SUBTLE
ArgentumFlare: "We need a visual health indicator"
Despoiler98: but also, handcuffs
Sanityis0verrated: they have to pass the same exams as physicians
TXC2: the look like handcuffs though
Genie_M: yes, prisoner
ArcOfTheConclave: all the names are super dumb
Rhynerd: I just thought of a joke I can make way later in this Play it Forward.
Sly_chocobo: "This isnt a prison! Its just a room made of metal that keeps people safe!"
ashiok_nightmare_moose: technology/cellphoen allegory
ashiok_nightmare_moose: power but at a cost
JadedCynic: I imagine he got the nickname back 'before' all this, when he was just a coroner
TheMerricat: I'm assuming this is a flashback
niccus: (metaphor becomes louder)
electra310: Cuff-link, lol
Tom_Bruise: "Sir, could you answer my questions before bombarding me with sci-fi gobblediguck?"
KartoffelKaiser: *jazz hands* symbolism
wench_tacular: multi function
serialtram: ah, symbolism
JadedCynic: 'deadman' because he deals with the dead all the time
NightValien28: because SYMBOLISM
josh___something: VERY SUBTLE
BusTed: The tingling lets you know it's working.
Sanityis0verrated: um no thanks?
Mangledpixel: but what's this meta for?
wench_tacular: "fluid"
serialtram: oh my
Despoiler98: eeeeewwwww
JadedCynic: @KartoffelKaiser exactly
fcloud: and why was he cuffed to the bed?
ArcOfTheConclave: "Liberty"
FoxBoxGamers: why did you said that so creepy
electra310: Not our precious bodily fluids!
Sanityis0verrated: um
NimrodXIV: I have so many concerns
Brozard: I want to hear Deadman's line delivered like Dave Spokesman
NightValien28: excuse you??w
ArgentumFlare: As Alton Brown Says: No Unitaskers
Theycallmejokke: We stole your piss
Mysticman89: should call them cuff links
Brozard: "We're here to help?"
fcloud: and HERE WE GO with the fluids. so many fluids in this game
Brozard: "Game over, man!"
Genie_M: sometimes they are REALLY not subtle in the imagery
Thatwasademo: if I had to guess, they're handcuffs because sleepwalking was a problem or something
TehAmelie: heeh now i remember the amazing story of the little Japanese girl in Pacific Rim who felt bad about not being able to say Guillermo's name but then she got to call him Totoro instead
TheThromborax: you accidentally destroyed a whole city in the first hour of the game
Izandai: Why is there Monster Energy on the table?
SK__Ren: I never noticed it was a MGS reference. Good catch
niccus: don't you want that for your stream? just listens for "game over" and then overlays it on command
DoctorAddams: This isn't Jenny LeClue Detectivu!
ashiok_nightmare_moose: one of the last cities in the US... a good portion of the remaining population
BusTed: Monster Energy is a core mechanic.
Sanityis0verrated: why you killing a baby
Excalibur_1867_ subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 16 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Excalibur_1867_! (Today's storm count: 34)
JadedCynic: @TheThromborax well...we tried, but failed - and we weren't alone
JonTheGoose: I mean who hasn't woken up handcuffed to a bed missing a few pints of bodily fluids amirite?
electra310: Sure, why not Sudbury?
ContingentCat: year that sounded capitalized
azureHaights: Decimated, or "decimated"
JadedCynic: Yay, for America just expropriating Canadian cities
electric_claire: Lots of sudburies
n_mandrag: sponsored by....
ArcOfTheConclave: monster energy product placment
Aenir798: There's more than one Sudbury
noSmokeFire: I forget, is all the Monster product placement or just because Kojima likes Monster?
electra310: How conveeeeeenient
Tom_Bruise: Even in the distant future, when Hell is about to conquer the Earth, we'll not run out of Monster Energy
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Its not sudbury ontario i dont think, the map doesnt make sense that way
NightValien28: noSmokeFire yes
JadedCynic: I wonder if the nickel deposit has an effect
wench_tacular: let's have some monster
neisan2112: Oh Monster is important for this game
LurkerSpine: There are Sudburies in the US
Angnor33: Product Placement!
wench_tacular: Man, I just died
Sanityis0verrated: no thanks
Thatwasademo: it's the kind of product placement where someone involved actually likes the product
tenthtechpriest: good thing monster energy is around
electric_claire: Presumably Sudbury in Massachusetts
Thatwasademo: but also money changed hands
ContingentCat: that explains the enviroment if we're near Sudbury
ArgentumFlare: Monster energy is a public utility now, runs through the pipes
TehAmelie: Monster is SO bad for your guts, but if you're a relf-reanimating zombie man i guess
TheThromborax: @JadedCynic BOSTON, ONTARIO
Billy_Waggledaggers: Ironically, that Monster is the one most damaging to the protagonist's health.
wench_tacular: of course you do
ArgentumFlare: See, nobody could touch you. its a m e t a p h o r
NightValien28: I mean monster probably has the life span of a radioactive product so
electra310: Not wanting you to touch him doesn't mean he doesn't want anybody touching him, you're just creepy
NojhLivic: Dude if people touching me left welts like that, I wouldn't call it a phobia, it'd be a justified reaction.
noSmokeFire: are you a bad enough dude to bring the president some drugs?
EvilBadman: Monster. It has what repatriate's crave
TXC2: MONSTER! it's what plants crave!
TheThromborax: @JadedCynic sorry for all caps
PixelArtDragon: He realizes there is something the other person does not like, resolves to be more careful about it. Good guy.
Saulens181: I doubt it
wench_tacular: i doubt it
Tom_Bruise: Don't make promises you can't keep, game!
Mangledpixel: X doubt
electra310: Rude
The_Color_Twelve: every game designer to every player
Alahmnat: what did we say about the touching!?
PixelArtDragon: I take that back.
Sanityis0verrated: um pain medicine won't cure know that right
JadedCynic: @TheThromborax no worries; I'm old and my hearing is bad - you MIGHT have to raise your voice ;)
Angnor33: Legally Distinct Hologram.
NavelWarfare: Then why did you offer us a hand up!?
fcloud: cause im not the PLAYER CHARACTER dumbo
NightValien28: DRUGS
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yup lobotomy
Genie_M: yep
Tophical: Says he will try not to touch him, walks right through him
TXC2: Morphine?! shoulda lead with that
ContingentCat: lrrFINE
Tom_Bruise: it looks like his scalp's stapled on with his skin over the staples
wench_tacular: maybe
TheExactSame: yes?
electra310: Are you a bad enough dude to save the president?
TheExactSame: I mean no
NightValien28: I would say no
JadedCynic: I still love that we get hit with this BAD stuff, and we *USE*it*for*our*tech*??? I *wonder* what you're trying to say, Hideo? ;)
Excalibur_1867_: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:31:32.
Genie_M: he's a porter
Thisbymaster: shut down game, uninstall
Ignatiuspants: America's last president before the apocalypse? that doesn't sound good
Genie_M: he delivers.
thetoastmonster: You say "yoink, mine now!"
OldManJohnsonMB: Snake Plisken: The president has crashed in the ruins of New York City. We need you to save him
TheThromborax: this is such a game game
Critterbot: Try not to overthink anything too much in this game. :D
vegetalss4: It would be kinda fun if the game offered you the choice and just ran credits and a game over screen if you said "no".
fcloud: "no" "then sam sat alone in his room forever the end"
electra310: Hologram deadman is bad at social distancing
ArgentumFlare: So, polling the room, do you think Kojima is self aware of his weird ham fisted metaphors? Are they intentionally/ironically obtuse, or totally sincere?
Mangledpixel: oh yeh, this does feel rather Escape From New York
TehAmelie: a little morphin might make the Monster go down easier. . .
Sly_chocobo: There is only one thing that kinda *really* bugged me about thsi game, the engery drink advertising..
NightValien28: ArgentumFlare he is 100% aware and they are intentionally obtuse
OldManJohnsonMB: @vegetalss4 Knowing Kojima, doing that would probably lock your profile
Sly_chocobo: Just... ooof, that just grinds my gears
Genie_M: it will make sense
thetoastmonster: And his job is a porter
josh___something: It's very subtle
Thatwasademo: There is in fact a connection there, yes
Sanityis0verrated: we keep getting names
Saulens181: from what I recall, it gets dumber
Jasoman: @Sly_chocobo it gives it the REAL world feel
noSmokeFire: an unusual form of nominative determinism
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @ArgentumFlare the obvious naming is just kojima naming things in english in his japanese game
RvLeshrac: I'm sorry, that's *Fragile Express*.
Alahmnat: going back to the Old Ways
electra310: Paul LRR
Sanityis0verrated: it might be a title
Tom_Bruise: the moment you're born, you get a registered LLC to your name
Thisbymaster: their first name isn't subtlety
TXC2: I mean, that's how it used to work IRL :p
e_bloc: good deduction Paul Loading Ready Run Bionic Trousers Inc.
OldManJohnsonMB: Paul, Loading Ready
Caldurin: So do we meet someone called "This way up"?
Mangledpixel: no families, only corporations
TheThromborax: PauLRR
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun well, surnames have kinda been like that all along - 'Smith' 'Hunter' 'Carver' etc
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
TehAmelie: in the future we don't have families but corporations. must be symbolism or something
RvLeshrac: That's a good idea.
ArcOfTheConclave: Kojima: I know developers who use subtext and they're all cowards.
serialtram: <given name> <job title> <employer>?
RvLeshrac: You should write that into the LRR contracts.
sivakrytos: people name their own companies after themselves all the time
XandaxDK: ok bot
JadedCynic: brb, I need water (and yeah, to stretch)
OldManJohnsonMB: Sam Hunter Huntersmen Inc?
TheExactSame: my name is johnson johnson & johnson
ashiok_nightmare_moose: sams name in particular is story relevant so dont go off too hard chat :p
RvLeshrac: I bet Ben would change his name to Ben Bionictrousers
TXC2: lets be honest here, names like cooper, thatcher, smith are all jobs :p
JadedCynic: @sivakrytos oooh, good point - chicken and egg kinda thing: who had the name first, the company, or the person? :D
TheThromborax: I just saw an Old Spice ad where the guys in it are so obviously high I can't believe it's not an ad for the Canadian market
ArgentumFlare: @NightValien28 Thats the sense I get too, but I've always wanted him to work with somebody who could like tell him No? I broadly like his stuff, but I feel like he's one of those film directors with good ideas, but need to be... tempered?
JadedCynic: @TXC2 yeah, Hideo isn't exactly doing anything NEW here :D
TehAmelie: Fragile™ is not a job at least
nyperold: @TXC2 Yeah, but by now, it's almost ironic when the job and the surname match up.
Saulens181: oh wait no it's just the stream
LordZarano: James already calls himself James_LRR
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie neither is 'bridges'
frnknstn: This game definitely seems good and interesting. It also seems a wonder it got funded.
TheThromborax: The name thing is weird because before that he wasn't actually working for Bridges. He was a gig worker
LordZarano: !homestreams
LRRbot: Crew homestreams: Adam: | Alex: | Ben Ulmer: | Cameron: | Cori and Ian: | Heather: | James: | Jeremy White: | Kathleen: | Matt Wiggins: | Serge: | Wheeler: | Nelson:
JadedCynic: @TheThromborax well....wait and see.....
frnknstn: He was called Sam Porter by the dude on the corpse disposal van
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the only thing kojima needs to look at is how he handles women in his games, imo letting him go off on world building ended up with really good results here regarding the Seam and the Beach tying together human connection as a part of society
TheThromborax: so he wasn't named after his employer. It would be like if your last name was Pepsi but you worked at Coke
Lithobraker: It's called an Aptronym chat
TheThromborax: @JadedCynic oh, I've beaten this game. The ending is still playing in the other room. It's been months now and that woman is still expositing.
LoadingReadyRun: again, are ads playing now for unsubscribed folks?
TacitusVigil: @TheThromborax Does it make anymore sense now? :P
TheThromborax: I'm just sittin on the shore of iceland, wishing, praying that at some point she will stop talking
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie the interesting thing is (I haven't finished the game so I can't say if this is addressed or not) is kinda chicken and egg: did the PERSON 'Fragile' found a courier company and name it after herself, or did the courier company named "Fragile™" exist first, and that woman took on the name when she joined the company (and just doesn't give out her first name?)
TacitusVigil: I'm unsubscribed, and yes. although it's back to the break screen
JadedCynic: @TheThromborax LUL
NimrodXIV: @LoadingReadyRun just finished, but yes
Lithobraker: LoadingReadyRun it played when I loaded the stream, but isn't playing right now
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @JadedCynic the former
frnknstn: Got no ad here, but it may be regional / adblocked
TheThromborax: @TacitusVigil yes, the story makes perfect sense within it's own four corners. However, (1) the whole story is explained in exposition dumps over the last 1/3 of the game and (2) it's so incredibly bizzarre that the photo-realism actually makes it harder to believe. This would have been better as an anime
ArgentumFlare: I had a batch of ads once you started the break
TheThromborax: but I love this game
TheThromborax: it's one of the best games I have every played and I honestly think about it quite often
saucemaster5000: I think the biggest question is why would you name a courier company "Fragile express." It sounds like they're gonna break your stuff.
Angreed66: More like they are telling their customers like they treat all packages as fragile
TXC2: I guess they are experts at fragile cargo ?
TehAmelie: their slogan is "Handled with care" so it's sort of thoughtful
Izandai: Could be like "We express deliver fragile things" with the implication that they don't break them along the way.
JadedCynic: yeah, don't get me wrong, Hideo Kojima is FASCINATING and comes up with some really interesting stuff, but can take some time to 'digest' it - and you might need to stop and take in in manageable chunks (not sure if I'm ready for another 'meal' :D ) etc and yeah, one day I'd like to see him join a project with someone that can rein him in...
TehAmelie: in a "Maybe not entirely a backwards justification for having such a superbly moe girl we can literally call her Frafile" way
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie meh, people use retronyms all the time - why not take it a step further *sigh of resignation*
TXC2: and we're back
CrazyZonie: Yay... Bodnard's back!
CrazyZonie: Boxnard
TehAmelie: some less good things have occurred
CrazyZonie: <== Can't Type
ContingentCat: shocked pikachu face
Tom_Bruise: things have gone well enough; you're alive, you've had Monster, stuff's good
Genie_M: naah, it'll turn much worse soon
Angnor33: At least they can't undo their likes?
TheThromborax: @CrazyZonie this is a total Boxnard game
RvLeshrac: They can't unlike it, because they're dead.
Alahmnat: no takesies backsies
niccus: i just noticed there's camera tracking
TehAmelie: phenomena are existent that would be considered not ideal
saucemaster5000: Dead likes are still likes
JadedCynic: but you still had the transactions complete right?
Genie_M: likes are likes
Sanityis0verrated: can't take likes away post mortem
Thatwasademo: well, you've still got 353 likes
JadedCynic: if a person writes me an IOU, and then dies...what happens?
Saulens181: As someone in the chat pointed out, likes are fungible, so yeah they still count.
sivakrytos: what about shares and subscribes
RvLeshrac: There's a fancy edition Sam figma, and I kind of want it.
TheThromborax: this is an Amazon warehouse
RvLeshrac: It comes with a bunch of packages.
Genie_M: this time it's Small Medium Large and XL boxes
nyperold: Talk about an economic boom.
MAPBoardgames: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:43:05.
JadedCynic: uniform 'attache' sized container
Genie_M: it's a "Small" package
Izandai: Shipping containers: The data packets of physical goods.
JadedCynic: we do get BIGGER boxes, but mostly yeah
Thatwasademo: there's a few standardized sizes for packages in this game not just one, but yeah
Lithobraker: It's like the U-classes for cube sats.
CrazyZonie: I don't know how shipping containers work on a ship, Paul. My experience is with shipping containers work with aircrafts. (I worked for Roadway Global Air back in the 1990s)
electric_claire: Packaging bloat has gotten even worse in the death stranding future
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun there's even one for pizza, which already has a standardized box, but this one is *clad*
Genie_M: outside
TXC2: to be fair, it is kinda weird that there isn't a global standard package size
JadedCynic: what's in a name, really
TheThromborax: go outside
ashiok_nightmare_moose: its another building entirely you have to leave
Genie_M: go outside, it's another building
JadedCynic: maybe we should go out the door and then go in that direction?
Thatwasademo: the isolation ward is in another building, so just go up the ramp
TheThromborax: you are underground
wench_tacular: your princess is in another castle
Tom_Bruise: "pleasant journey" Yeap, will do, Robot
TXC2: "work with care? whose care?"
wench_tacular: and if you do die, don't take a city out with you
ashiok_nightmare_moose: 'reconnect the world'
nyperold: Reconnect the world
TehAmelie: well, the universal standard metal case packages are extremely useful when you have to deliver cubic meters of various stuff on foot but i wonder
partsofmanny: the walking sim now begins
ContingentCat: safety...uh it's in there somewhere
josh___something: Explicit tutorial talk
neisan2112: It's like 8th?
TheThromborax: setting markers and drawing routes is a transformative gameplay element in this game
OldManJohnsonMB: We have written a list of priorities and the word safety is on that list.
JadedCynic: yeah, drawing a better route than the 'shortest' route can be a thing when planning your hike
TehAmelie: Safety n:th
MAPBoardgames: We acknowledge safety.
Theycallmejokke: You know it's bad when LRR's safety priority is better than the place you work
TXC2: !findequote safety
NojhLivic: Those buildings looked less built.
TXC2: !findquote safety
LRRbot: Quote #6171: "I'm not beholden to your standards of safety." —RebelliousUno [2019-06-25]
Tom_Bruise: It used to be fifth on the list or prios, but then the whole Targhost thing happened, so we had to rethink our strategy and so now it's down to 19th
Lithobraker: Package standard sizes should be like A4 paper, so that the smaller packages can still tesselate into the dimensions of the larger packages.
Genie_M: look at map?
Thatwasademo: setting a route can be very helpful and you should probably get used to doing it
Angreed66: Prioritizing the impossible is for the foolish.
JadedCynic: ^^^^
TehAmelie: such big air
wench_tacular: well they do deal in copses
JadedCynic: well, it feeds a large underground facility
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Train Operators only
TXC2: Thatwasademo but exploring!
TehAmelie: this building is basically a skateboard trick
ashiok_nightmare_moose: CHoo Choo
noSmokeFire: can we get a skateboard?
CrazyZonie: Just think, someone had to sit down with Norman Reetus to record and edit all that grunting noise.
TheThromborax: draw a route in your map
neisan2112: Just cus it SAYS no access doesn't mean you should follow it
OldManJohnsonMB: In the post-apocalyptic future, all must obey the 'no access' signs
Genie_M: it's to the left of no access
TheThromborax: hold down X and drag the line
JadedCynic: @CrazyZonie or maybe - for more verisimilitude, jog alongside him and record the sounds :D

Mistborn83: Hi Paul. I hope you enjoy this game as much as I did. It was my fav game of 2019
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Mistborn83! (Today's storm count: 35)
TehAmelie: and then think, you just can't get those authentic grunts of excertion without physically running and jumping and generally work up a lather
Theycallmejokke: Cool technology
Thatwasademo: you can tilt the map because it's actually drawn relative to Sam's wrist
TXC2: for what dark purpose can we do that? :p
neisan2112: Other road
JadedCynic: take the left side?
Genie_M: left
wench_tacular: hang a left
Mistborn83: IMO a perfect game.
nyperold: When they say "no access", they also throw up a force field. At least it isn't like the one at Ulence Flats.
Thatwasademo: go left
CrazyZonie: @JadedCynic They'd still have to sit down to do the editing at some point. Hours of nothing but Reetus grunting in your ear.
Genie_M: leeeeeeeft
Max_Mckayful: Hello, I'm the map
Theycallmejokke: Be a rebel Paul, don't let that sign push you around
JadedCynic: @CrazyZonie oh wow, yeah, that'd be worse - I'll just jog with him and record. :P
TheThromborax: "compass" is the first-person mode
RocknGrohlNerd: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:48:45.
Thatwasademo: chat's already telling Paul to go left
Thatwasademo: it's great
MAPBoardgames: Go Left!
Tom_Bruise: all this time I never knew I was actually a compass
TehAmelie: cutting and splicing fractions of grunts and playing them over and over until they don't sound like human noises
JadedCynic: !go left
RocknGrohlNerd: thanks lrrbot

wench_tacular: picnic?
Lithobraker: OldManJohnsonMB in the post apocalypse if someone cared enough to erect a "no access" sign I'm going to assume trying to enter that way is a Bad Idea™
neisan2112: Left, like 30 seconds ago
NojhLivic: Good job! I knew you'd make it.
DeM0nFiRe: It's a walking simulator, so doing more walking actually means you're even better at the game
ashiok_nightmare_moose: !bad advice
Max_Mckayful: I consulted my Hitchhiker's Guide. Panic averted
Genie_M: now for the hard part
AmberLampLight: no picnic?
RvLeshrac: <Kojima> I need you to strip and take a shower while I record it. <Reedus> ... this is for the game, right? <Kojima> ... ... ... yes of course
X_modem: Delivery is in your blood!
JadedCynic: @Tom_Bruise if you stayed in 4d person, yeah, you'd never see it
Sogheim: lrrPAUL !
Thatwasademo: Deadman, why are you calling us so often?
OldManJohnsonMB: I'm more of a fan of the deconstructionist movement. So much more fun
Angreed66: It just occurred to me why aren't all the plants that die in the rain exploding into black goo too. Humans aren't really that special irl.
Izandai: @Thatwasademo He's lonely.
TheExactSame: impressionist
nyperold: Ooh, a pay phone. What vintage is that?
Agorgext: He's fragile, but not that fragile :)
wench_tacular: probably
ArcOfTheConclave: there is
ContingentCat: even more deconstructionist?
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun libertarians
Thatwasademo: There is in fact that, yes Paul
Genie_M: you'll meet them
TXC2: yes, they called Republicans Kappa
SkylerRingtail: The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement
Ignatiuspants: deconstructionist movement?
JadedCynic: that's less of a conscious 'movement' but just unconscious entropy
neisan2112: Woooow
Orgmastron: Deconstructionist, obvs
Izandai: @Angnor33 You may have noticed that this game is not, in fact, real life.

JadedCynic: @TXC2 ow, too true
cardinalwiggles: a whole entrance just for him?
n_mandrag: lets be fair - whenever there is a sensible plan to make something better- there HAS to be an opposition
Lithobraker: There's the "I would get up but the next episode on Netflix already started" movement
damn_i_am_pretty: There's the Rebuiltist Movment, the Fixit Movment...
Theycallmejokke: The "ah fuck it, this seems hard to fix" movement have some solid points
RocknGrohlNerd: your name is Bridges?
Sanityis0verrated: there may be an eff it we live here now movement
OldManJohnsonMB: The Apathy/Nihilism Movement
JadedCynic: Now I see why they had "# 06" on that truck...
CrazyZonie: I'm usually closely associated with the Bowel Movement.
TehAmelie: it would be such a Kojima thing to pull a David Cage and secretly make a full digitized copy of his actor taking a shower but only the sound
LordZarano: Is there an antideconstuctionist movement?
e_bloc: Cheer250 good afternoon Paul Streamer Loading Ready Run Bionic Trousers Media Inc.

ashiok_nightmare_moose: @RocknGrohlNerd 👀
Tom_Bruise: oh, and don't forget the Demolitionist movement, founded by Demolition Girl
TXC2: so they needed a courier to go a block over?

TehAmelie: they take no chances with the president's morphine eh
Max_Mckayful: He's easing us in
TheThromborax: it was a LIE
saucemaster5000: what... a weird casting
OldManJohnsonMB: To be fair, it took you a little while to cross that street.
nyperold: Don't care about doing something? There's an apathy for that!
Alahmnat: sorry what?
wench_tacular: you'd think that I'd remember that
NightValien28: I absolutely hate that everyone knows his phobia and yet constantly try to shake his hand
Thatwasademo: Yeah, the president is Sam's mother.
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun it was a justification for getting Sam in the same room as his mother
Genie_M: mom
electric_claire: Wait, the president is Sam's mom?
Sanityis0verrated: first and last
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yup
Izandai: paul pls
Sogheim: oh hey the camera bobs with Paul
Scar_Red_Tiger: ":nd Last?"
Thatwasademo: I like how the face tracking just automatically zoomed in there
Alahmnat: it's like there's always a Black president in every disaster movie :P
JadedCynic: again, what was Sam's full name (that he avoids using)? "Sam Porter Bridges"
noSmokeFire: why did deadman Like this delivery 52 times?
Alahmnat: like, "walking"
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Funny enough Vanquish sort of did it first
X_modem: It's really subtle... but there is a *minor* theme involving bridges for the people keen enough to catch the obscure references. LOL
OldManJohnsonMB: "Only you have two complete hands to carry an item and open a door"
Genie_M: oh they do
NeoSilverThorn: Delivering *is* Sam's special set of skills.
Lithobraker: Wait, does Paul's camera have a servo for face tracking?
n_mandrag: Sam - no one else can hand me the salt. I NEED YOUR SKILLS!
Genie_M: he's a porter
TehAmelie: it seems you excel at "miscellaneous"
Tom_Bruise: look, not to be overly judgemental of large people, but Deadman was in no position to come pick it up himself
RocknGrohlNerd: question chat, why carry stuff around? there no cars in this universe?
saucemaster5000: I'm more thrown by running into the "Pan's Labyrinth" director on a postapocalyptic delivery job.
Angreed66: This the start of the game
MAPBoardgames: Got lost twice, crossing the street
wench_tacular: good job speed wasn't a factor
Theycallmejokke: To be fair, you had chat helping you
cardinalwiggles: you got there in the end, thats all that matters
TheThromborax: "I need you to cross the street." "I got lost three times"
Mushbie: @Lithobraker I think its a cropping system instead of moving the camera
TacitusVigil: Wait, it's just the Oval Office?
Lithobraker: Tom_Bruise you just make it a ramp, and he can roll.
Izandai: what
CrazyZonie: Paul, there are much worse fetch quests. You should be happy for this one.
SkylerRingtail: Ugggggh
Thatwasademo: yeah, but you fell for the ploy to try to get you to talk to your mother, so you get 52 likes
FoxBoxGamers: excuse me
Izandai: jesus christ
TheThromborax: Mr. TotallyNormalGuy
Invitare: Kojima pls
OldManJohnsonMB: Die Hardman 2, The Revenge
TXC2: why does they have a mask INDOORS
tenthtechpriest: DIE HARDMAN
electra310: Wait, the hospital bed is in the Oval Office?
Sogheim: Black Mask!
DeM0nFiRe: Diehardman is a christmas movie
SkylerRingtail: I can't take that name seriously
wench_tacular: Bane!
Alahmnat: It's a Good Day to Die Hardman
Billy_Waggledaggers: I can hear Adam now: "Wow-wee! This game stinks!"
Tom_Bruise: Why does he have Raiden's jawline?
Despoiler98: Why is he wearing a friggin SKULL?
TheThromborax: Die Hardman is actually just a dutch name. It's a coincidence
BlueMechanic: director of bridges. "you go across"
kalira77: you forgot Fragile
Theycallmejokke: Well he is clearly NOT a badguy
JadedCynic: Remember - Sam is known as 'the one who always delivers' - no one ever said he delivered PROMPTLY
noSmokeFire: @Despoiler98 fashion
OldManJohnsonMB: Missed a real opporunity not casting Bruce Willis
Lithobraker: There's a reason that BDG made a "come up with your Kojima name" video
TehAmelie: they tried calling him the Bridge Builder but people kept thinking he was some kind of diplomat when he actually just builds bridges
n_mandrag: They really should have been voiced by bruce willis
EvilBadman: This dude seems trust worthy. Good name, too
noSmokeFire: Die Hardman is german for "The Hardman"
TXC2: Bridget Bridges?
TacitusVigil: I mean, the White House has a Residence. You didn't need to put the bed in the Oval Office
electra310: Bridget...Bridges?
wench_tacular: will we recognize her?
Vyous: Bridget Bridges
Orgmastron: The names in this game are very absurd
SK__Ren: D'eth Aardm'n
Billy_Waggledaggers: Her name isn't any better. Bridge-it Bridges.
nihilus_42: just mentioning, that is not a covid safe mask
MAPBoardgames: Are the NPCs gaslighting the Protag?
TXC2: or Bridget President?
OldManJohnsonMB: President Bridges
TehAmelie: at least it wasn't another clone of Big Boss
Brozard: "Die, Hardman" I scream while playing Mega Man 3
tenthtechpriest: hi mom
TheThromborax: Bridget President America
Genie_M: yep
Ignatiuspants: Bridget Bridges?
wench_tacular: please don't
Max_Mckayful: Well, he's a "deathless" freak. Sounds like he's hard to kill. Hard to die
Angreed66: Ah Bridget Bridges
NeoSilverThorn: @Orgmastron That's a Kojima thing. I mean, there's a Metal Gear character named "Hot Coldman", I shit thee not.
JadedCynic: Pres. Bridget Bridges
SachielOne: Is my mom going to explode?
Wiliart: Martha?
Sogheim: I would be more concerned if this was named for Jeff or Beau
OldManJohnsonMB: I have to hope this is somethign lost in translation, and not just "Call that Man Die-Hardman, because its hard for him to die"
Genie_M: and yes, remember what happens when people die?
OldManJohnsonMB: "Such a visionary"
electric_claire: Wait, is her hospital bed in the oval office?
JadedCynic: named the organization/agency after her self to inspire people
n_mandrag: Bridget Bridges, of the overpass line ?
Alahmnat: are you wearing clean underwear?
TheThromborax: @electric_claire yes and no
CrazyZonie: @Sogheim Hey! I'd be honored to work at a company named for Jeff BRidges
TehAmelie: that's me?!
EvilBadman: Amelie? On DVD?
JadedCynic: @electric_claire why not?
Ignatiuspants: are the bridge babies Bridget's actual children and therefore the protagonist's siblings?
Lithobraker: Amelie? Cook an egg in a spoon? Amelie?
SkylerRingtail: And what did you do with your life?
noSmokeFire: I am Amelie. I cook the egg.
Thatwasademo: amelie went left, like chat told her to do
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie you've been busy (or slacking on the job? ;) )
wench_tacular: For a Bionic Woman, she's not looking great
TehAmelie: i'm scared
RocknGrohlNerd: dang it Paul stop being funny, I can't take it seriously
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @OldManJohnsonMB bruh its a japanese game, they name stuff in english all the time
SkylerRingtail: Again
TXC2: this game is just Kevin Costner's The Postman :p
LurkerSpine: why would they set this up in the oval office?
EvilBadman: @TXC2, rad, where's Tom Petty
Sanityis0verrated: America was never whole though?
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie yeah, it's awkward when a story decides to use YOUR name in it...feels weird
BusTed: @TXC2 I have been saying this since the beginning!
Tom_Bruise: So if this is all about restoring America, what's the rest of the world like?
TehAmelie: if America goes, so does humanity. not for any metaphysical reason, just spite
Wiliart: So.. America = humankind. Pfff
TacitusVigil: I mean, Europe could be doing fine?
FoxBoxGamers: why do we have rad tech and cars and stuff and this hospital bed looks exactly the same
FoxBoxGamers: also UHOH
electric_claire: I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous this story is
TXC2: BusTed fair enough
NightValien28: how did she have strength to do that
MAPBoardgames: Doesn't the 25th amendment kick in during times like this and the VP should take over?
TheExactSame: where's that call nurse button?
electra310: Maaaahm, staaaahp
JadedCynic: Sam gave up with the last effort, when things seemed to screw up...
wench_tacular: she's leaking
OldManJohnsonMB: Sam, if you don't listen I am going to LITERALLY RIP MYSELF IN HALF
BusTed: @TXC2 Great minds and all that.
PixelArtDragon: Symbolism!
sivakrytos: @electric_claire idk what you expected from hideo kojima
tenthtechpriest: you'd think that if the president fell out of her bed hospital staff would come running
Lithobraker: how heavy is she that she can knock over heavy equipment?
BlueMechanic: I like that Jack Shit still ha a democartically elected leader
Angreed66: Asan American I disagree with the premise of this game
josh___something: That's a bit rude to touch your clearly tpuch phobic son
electric_claire: @sivakrytos I've never played or seen a kojima game!
TXC2: MAPBoardgames only if they invoke it, they may not what too for some reason
RvLeshrac: josh___something: He's allergic, not phobic.
arrowgrut: Time to die
TehAmelie: maybe this is why he has touchphobia
TacitusVigil: The timeline confuses me.
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun I think it's the cancer
Genie_M: yes
fcloud: is she legitimately old? or did she just stand out in the rain for five minutes
Thatwasademo: well that was a hell of a hallucination
MAPBoardgames: @TXC2 What about now?
Genie_M: she's actually old
nyperold: I'm looking forward to meeting Look Who's Talking-Man, Loaded Weapon-Man, and 12 Monkeys-Man.
electra310: Oh no, you killed the president of jack shit!
JadedCynic: well, it WAS terminal
Alahmnat: PAUL.
X_modem: Perfect timing for that question.
tenthtechpriest: PAUL
Theycallmejokke: :D
OldManJohnsonMB: Physically and literally came on to me
kalira77: Paul no
CanPlayGames: lrrFINE
josh___something: @RvLeshrac I felt like phobic was also a fine word to use there, but that was what I meant
Theycallmejokke: Paul yes
TehAmelie: and now Sam is the president
arrowgrut: Oh she's dead
RocknGrohlNerd: I believe Paul
NimrodXIV: yet no one came running when all the equipment clattered to the floor
arrowgrut: Nice job
Tom_Bruise: Sooo none of us brought a mop, huh?
TehAmelie: by right of combat
HavenJunde: she is Sam's mom, so yes she is actually old
Alahmnat: so who's the vice president?
ArdCollider: notthatFakefight
Alahmnat: or, like, the speaker of the house?
CrazyZonie: What's the black sludge?
Sanityis0verrated: why was she already black/muddy
Lithobraker: Sam's expression is literally the blankest possible
TheExactSame: I think we can sue
neisan2112: It can be both
JadedCynic: well, remember - people are FILLED with chiral particles from their gradual exposure.
Scar_Red_Tiger: allergic
josh___something: I mean, both
Aenir798: He has some sort of allergic reaction yeah
JadedCynic: an allargy
HavenJunde: it could be psychosomatic
Lithobraker: The president was really into activated carbon
Sanityis0verrated: it more an allergy than a phobia
TacitusVigil: Ooooh, it was a holodeck.
MAPBoardgames: Give me 20 decaliters of saline, stat! *Sploosh!*
wench_tacular: end program
tenthtechpriest: well one could cause the other
Izandai: what
RocknGrohlNerd: its a trap
JadedCynic: "Computer end program"
arrowgrut: And she's dead
OldManJohnsonMB: Oh good, now we can turn off this hologram
thetoastmonster: You were on the holodeck all along
BusTed: He has a rare case of HyperColor skin.
JadedCynic: well, in the respect that she was the PotUS, it was :D
TehAmelie: the time rain got to the picture eh
fcloud: "surprise! it wasn't _____ at all" is a kojima trademark. like, do a shot
METB0L: it was norman reedus all along
TacitusVigil: When was she elected? I thought the Death Stranding happened when he was a kid? Or before he was born?
JadedCynic: also, there's an issue - people die...and Corpse Disposal
NeoSilverThorn: "Computer, end program!" "InVaLiD cOmMaNd.!"
Max_Mckayful: Three can keep a secret if two are dead
TXC2: um....presidents change all the time
TheThromborax: Sam actually is a color-change bracelet
josh___something: Oh good, the "Weekend at" dangit baul
Billy_Waggledaggers: Deadman is literally wearing a red shirt. Ominous.
PixelArtDragon: Why not just... bury her?
Tom_Bruise: Someone better get Vice President Gangways on the phone
TehAmelie: Weekend at Bernie's would seem like a magical wonderland in this world
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun less that and more "Throw Momma From The Train" ;)

Ignatiuspants: isn't there a line of succession? did Bridget's entire cabinet die and not get replaced
CrazyZonie: Paul, I think Disney's Anamatronics division can help.
Brozard: "Sam, you are now the president"
RocknGrohlNerd: and now you are president,
Thisbymaster: why are they so close?
TacitusVigil: Dead people can't enforce contracts.
niccus: i'm afraid bernie's not president
frnknstn: more like weekend at burnies, cos of the incineration lol geddid
Alahmnat: is this, like, a BSG situation and we have to make the secretary of education the next president?
josh___something: Yes... she succeeded :)
TehAmelie: gottem
Sanityis0verrated: I GAVE NO CONSENT TO THIS
MAPBoardgames: Sam "Hearse" Bridges
RocknGrohlNerd: @brozard spiderman pointing meme
Sanityis0verrated: it means nothing
tenthtechpriest: hey sam I know your mom just died in your arms, but can you go dispose her body?
fcloud: "that is an ironclad legal document right there" "um, i'm not sure that--" "IRONCLAD"
ArdCollider: zombie first and last female president of jack shit
EvilBadman: Chat making assumptions that there /is/ an america to be president of, and her title wasn't honorific by now.
josh___something: in that you literally forced it on his hand
OldManJohnsonMB: "Carry your mothers corpse into a field and burn it"
Thatwasademo: contracts are symbolism not law now
josh___something: while he was unconcious
TehAmelie: hey, she weighs like 50 kg tops. we can job with twice that weight no problem
TacitusVigil: Wait, is every city named [adjective] Knot City?
TehAmelie: jog, even
fcloud: do we ever find out why diehardman wears a mask?
FoxBoxGamers: throuuuuugh the mountains
JadedCynic: it's a dead body - the fact that it is your estranged mother that you left on bad terms with...
Invitare: why do you need the incinerator to be so far away?
electra310: They can't just, like, start a bonfire?
Invitare: wouldn't it make more sense to keep them close
Alahmnat: oh good, then we're getting paid
Tom_Bruise: Wait, so this facility doesn't have an incinerator on-site? Not even a can of Axe Body Spray and a lighter?
OldManJohnsonMB: What do you do if someone else dies?
NeoSilverThorn: @fcloud Spoiler.
Lithobraker: TXC2 to be fair to the game, the sudden death of leader could destroy a weak state in the midst of a crisis, even if there is a pre-designated line of succession.
neisan2112: Need to not be near the cities
Brozard: @FoxBoxGamers Two lovers
Caldurin: voidout, chiral density, midichlorians, got it.
RocknGrohlNerd: avngrWut seems like a set up to me tbh
Aenir798: They have to be far away from population
Genie_M: they have to be away from civilization
TXC2: Lithobraker good point
TheThromborax: they are automatic
Genie_M: they throw stuff in the air
NojhLivic: They hinted about why burning a body near a place is bad, but they didn't explain why yet
saucemaster5000: Nope, fire is scarce in the future
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the bodies release chiralium
Sanityis0verrated: yes, I put a cuff on it that means you agree with me
Genie_M: yep
Mangledpixel: they implied earlier that the bodies give off something dangerous when they are burned
LurkerSpine: you can definitely make incinerators that don't vent into the air
n_mandrag: they noted that they could not burn it close to the settlement because of "chiral particles"
Roland_Malius: I think they said they have to be away from cities
josh___something: When does sam go off the deep-end and just refuse to evacuate the corpse bomb?
thetoastmonster: load them into a trbuchet
wench_tacular: how is she going to fit into the boxes
SachielOne: There was the implication that burning a bofy too close to the city was a Very Bad Thing
MAPBoardgames: Can't you put that in a box?
ArcOfTheConclave: they said that they don't want to incinerate people in the cities earlyer
Talin06: are they fusion incinerators?
Genie_M: they have to be away from cities
Thatwasademo: the incinerator needs to be outside the forcefield at least
CrazyZonie: Paul, we don't question the plot holes. Never question the plot holes. The longer you stare into a plot hole, you become the plot hole
Mangledpixel: so presumably the incinerators need to be in the middle of nowhere
TehAmelie: holographic particles in the air or something
Genie_M: they attract the hand-things
NightValien28: is there ever an explanation of why they don't use tunnels?
electra310: Bridget Strand Bridges President
rustenskurk: Every new name we learn makes me sigh
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun you want to release all these particles that have BAD explosions when they're collected together - you want to release them close to your habitats?
Sanityis0verrated: then shut up
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Bridget Strand
Theycallmejokke: Time to Yoda mom of to the nearest bonefire
SK__Ren: Bridget "Bridges" Strand?
Sogheim: these words they use bother me so much
OldManJohnsonMB: Bridget's Bridges and Other Collectables
TacitusVigil: Bad news: she's already dead.
HavenJunde: ah, america is dead
Angreed66: When the landscape is plotoles it's hard to avert the eyes
josh___something: Can we let america die here though?
Sanityis0verrated: time is of the essence but we will just sit here chatting
saucemaster5000: sir, that's not gonna fit in the overhead compartment, you'll have to check it.
LurkerSpine: That's not how governments nor companies work
Max_Mckayful: I studied American Reconstructionism in Future College. We learned Deadman was a controversial figure
josh___something: America LITERALLY just died here
Izandai: Tell you what, I did not expect this much pro-America rhetoric.
Tom_Bruise: Just let America die, and then we can start a new country; America 2
fcloud: "this seems like a huge plot hole" "let's not get into it now"
Lithobraker: So Sam, here's your shovel to dig the ditch, and here's the can of gas.
TheExactSame: unconvincing
NeoSilverThorn: @Tom_Bruise We're in America 1.5 here.
JadedCynic: the leading figure behind a movement dies, the followers tend to lose determination
TehAmelie: America 2: Merica Harder
josh___something: Why hold onto the america
TacitusVigil: You know, America =/= humanity
Angreed66: People who can let the past go kill the future
Milocw subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 5 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Milocw! (Today's storm count: 39)
Sanityis0verrated: I'm assuming she sent out wife
arrowgrut: why is it called bridges?
fcloud: what if there were other countries, outside america? controversial theory
OldManJohnsonMB: Perhaps this is a metaphor for modern america: Literally a corpse to be taken to a field and burned?
Genie_M: well now that you say that....
Max_Mckayful: @Izandai I here ya. Do see it more of "we need a county" in general, and less America in general. But also, I hear ya
Tom_Bruise: Vice President Skulloface seems to know enough about the job
Alahmnat: Bridges Across America
Theycallmejokke: al-yup
JadedCynic: yeah, but do you want someone who has to wear a mask due to his repatraition scars
PixelArtDragon: "Gee, I wonder what he's carrying in that body bag"
electra310: You can't even give the guy a wheelbarrow?
OldManJohnsonMB: BT = Big Truck Territory, i assume
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @arrowgrut to symbolize brisgign connections between people but also literally building bridges
TacitusVigil: If only we had drones...
Mangledpixel: there we go
TehAmelie: Body Temperatures?
TheExactSame: can we make charomatter reclamation tech?
Aenir798: Their music will haunt you
Genie_M: BT singular
Genie_M: BTs plural
BusTed: They can be pretty enthusiastic.
Izandai: @Max_Mckayful Especially since this is a Japanese game. But then, maybe that's exactly why.
ContingentCat: that KPop band has gotten big
electra310: "Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead!"
Sanityis0verrated: I your support basically thoughts and prayers
josh___something: covered in Kpop stans
fcloud: uh guys, can i get a truck, or a bike, or something? please?
OldManJohnsonMB: "What're you carrying Sam, a corpse?" No, why would you say that?
BlueMechanic: There's a metaphor for something here
MAPBoardgames: Are you more a supporter of Joe Johnson or John Joeson?
Sanityis0verrated: because what can they do
Sogheim: Paul out here on this KPop kick
wench_tacular: enjoy your walk with this ticking timebomb on your back
Angreed66: That's not how winds work game
LurkerSpine: Is there some meaning behind this like, your mother carried you and now you're carrying your mother?
nyperold: There's no such thing as a presidential line of succession anymore, I guess.
Tom_Bruise: yea get it? strands of spider's weave? Strand? Get it?!
CrazyZonie: So, you just went from one "monkey on your back boss" to two "Monkey on your back boss" via the cuff links?
Alahmnat: Totally Inconspicuous
Despoiler98: Why didnt they give him a truck or a bike/
X_modem: I'm so sick of this tired gaming trope of transporting your dead mom-president's bodies to incinerators. Feels like every game does this.
BusTed: Oh yeah.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yup the logo also references the chiral network
TehAmelie: at least we get her in a funny position for the rigor mortis
fcloud: BTS is the true enemy in this game
TacitusVigil: Carrying your dead parent is a bit of a blunt metaphor, isn't it?
Billy_Waggledaggers: That is a pretty harrowing image, to be fair.
niccus: this is exactly what backpacking is like
BusTed: This is the final sequence of Cave Story.
josh___something: "Deliver the president's corpse to the incinerator" is one HELL of a uest prompt XD
Genie_M: @LoadingReadyRun pull up the map and plan your trip
Despoiler98: why didnt he get a vehicle?
Alahmnat: she's very floppy
Theycallmejokke: Going on a road-trip with the family is always so stressful
Thatwasademo: yeah, so uh, corpses are already above the comfortable weight limit
Max_Mckayful: @Izandai It would be nice, this being the apocalypse, if the Bridges map wasn't just the US ;)
Invitare: hopefully she doesn't wake up and grab a Nemesis
MAPBoardgames: He has great cardio.
electra310: Are we really going to be staring at the bouncing corpse this whole mission?
Angreed66: Now wait here and let the body level this place
JadedCynic: man, this metaphor of 'your aged parents being a burden to you' is kinda on the nose...
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @TacitusVigil not really a metaphor but ALSO a metaphor :p it is the kojima way
TehAmelie: i guess we can walk backwards and face the camera
RAICx: Someone out there is going to cosplay this guy, body backpack and all
wench_tacular: she seems unwieldy as cargo
TehAmelie: so unbalanced
MAPBoardgames: Dude! I JUST LEFT! Don't you have a job?
TehAmelie: lrrAWW
TacitusVigil: I mean, couldn't they have given us a wagon?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yeah you really want ot hold the straps for body disposal
Thatwasademo: corpses become Bridges Touchers, got it
Angreed66: only 55kg with a body bag
josh___something: "I don't think I need to remind you" *proceeds to remind you anyway* -_-
Viscount16: upside if cancer: when you have to transport your dead mother's body up the mountains on foot, at least it's not as heavy as it could have been
Lithobraker: Oh no, someone told Kojima about chiral molecules
Sanityis0verrated: can you damage something that is meant to be incinerated
Izandai: @Max_Mckayful Well, now we're getting into technical and gameplay limitations vis a vis map size. In all fairness, for variety in terrain and climate, you can't do much better than the contiguous US.
Genie_M: @LoadingReadyRun easiest is to keep holding on both triggers all the time
CrazyZonie: @MAPBoardgames I know, right?
fcloud: here we are in the bustling metropolis of capital knot city
fcloud: *tumbleweeds*
josh___something: "...As you know" :)
TacitusVigil: Or a shopping cart?
thetoastmonster: could they not even spare a trolley to wheel her on?
TXC2: Viscount16 oooof
Tom_Bruise: well they'd have to snap a few bones to fold it up properly but I guess that's rude?
Despoiler98: ok seriously why didnt we get one of those trucks they had
TehAmelie: we have seen the cars in this world, clearly foot delivery is the only safe way
MAPBoardgames: A cart with big wheels?
OldManJohnsonMB: You fool! Dollies are what caused the end of the world in the first place!
TacitusVigil: Or literally *anything*
CrazyZonie: Tricycle? Bicycle? Pushcart?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you have to earn those upgrades
Aenir798: They could've driven you partway.
TheThromborax: the dolly would have to have feet
Viscount16: @txc2 right? it's not great!
Alahmnat: I guess every truck in the city was in the part that got explodified
Sanityis0verrated: this is best for mountain climbing
NightValien28: or you know a car, those they seem to hav
Theycallmejokke: I mean bone-saws are known tech
JadedCynic: we HAD a handful of those trucks in the garage we left to deliver the morphine
saucemaster5000: why not just send it via trebuchet?
Angreed66: Like they could've at least taken the trucks part way
TXC2: shit, a wheelbarrow would've helped :p
Sanityis0verrated: shut it man we workin
fcloud: she's only the president of the united states, we cant spare any resources for her burial
Deathrite_Sharkman: cue journey
Sanityis0verrated: stop with your propaganda
electra310: And look at her now!
Tom_Bruise: A sled! Get a sled!
ContingentCat: yeah even like a rickshaw thing would be better
foopoiuyt: Also, if they want this to be secret, why make it look like you're carrying a corpse on your back?
TacitusVigil: Is this just the plot of Dave now?
RvLeshrac: Place your bets for how many times Paul will drop The Presidential Corpse
FoxBoxGamers: @saucemaster5000 that would be a HELL of a Strand Game
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the development of technology over the game mirrors the increasing connections between settlements
josh___something: this is such an inefficient way to carry a corpse
MAPBoardgames: I thought we were pretending she is still alive? What's with the past-tense speech?
LordZarano: a shopping cart, a wheelbarrow, a wheelchair, anything
neisan2112: Kinda hard to take those through mountains
JadedCynic: @Angreed66 one question tho - how'd the construct the incinerator up there then?
Genie_M: you will get tech
Genie_M: later
thetoastmonster: can't we just fire her into the distance on a big trbuchet
neisan2112: There's lots of climbing
OldManJohnsonMB: You could strap it to a plank and drag it - that would still be better
NeoSilverThorn: "I'm carrying my dead mom on my back now. This is my life. How did this get to be my life?"
TehAmelie: a, momapult is the best solution so far
Lithobraker: Do donkeys not exist anymore?
OldManJohnsonMB: "Don't need any of those trucks you just walked past
Tom_Bruise: Nah, donkeys all died
X_modem: QWOP Mom-President Corps Disposal.
Angreed66: There are as many plot holes as stars in the sky
Invitare: why isn't there like, a train to this incredibly important incineration facility?
fcloud: momathon 2020
OldManJohnsonMB: It's not a plot hole, it's a feature
fcloud: yeah, kinda cruel to make him walk RIGHT PAST the array of unused trucks
Alahmnat: I guess to be fair, they did say that the corpse disposal team blowing up kind of obliterated the road
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @Invitare they just said the road was taken out
Genie_M: plan your trip
TehAmelie: maybe even a tremomchet
electra310: When I did emergency response training, they taught us like seventeen ways to move a person or a body with people power, and literally zero of them were "put them in a sitting position and attach them backwards to your back."
TheExactSame: like, hospitals have wheelchairs
neisan2112: Trucks don't work driving up a mountain. They aren't Skyrim Horses
Talin06: if they did that than there would be less "game play"
JadedCynic: how did Bridges manage to get the large components for this incinerator (that they could NOT assemble on site) up to this remote mountaintop locale in the first place?
rocketjohn: Just tuned in. What the everliving Christ is that on your back?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: to be fair int his game the trucks do handle terrain really well
MAPBoardgames: Now climb to the top, then jump off into a convenient hay pile.
EvilBadman: are you pressing or holding, this looks like a hold
OldManJohnsonMB: @electra310 Unfortunately, that knowledge was lost when society collapsed
rocketjohn: Is that a Mummy?
Genie_M: long button press
fcloud: @rocketjohn our mom, the president of the united states
Carnevale_Guy: you need to hold the button not press
drdngr: you need to long press if there's a dashed circle around the button
Despoiler98: your moms corpse dont worry about it
HavenJunde: @rocketjohn its a dead body
ashiok_nightmare_moose: offroading in the bikes is alot of fun
Alahmnat: @rocketjohn yes. and also our mommy
NeoSilverThorn: @Invitare No track, bad terrain, monsters from beyond the veil. (Circle one.)
CrazyZonie: @electra310 so, what you're saying is, your training is incomplete? You didn't get that 18th way to transport someone on your back as if they're a chair?
TacitusVigil: Yeah, just carrying a corpse on our back so dumb.
JadedCynic: maybe when we get away from the build up area
OldManJohnsonMB: It's a Mommy Mummy, @rocketjohn
Genie_M: @LoadingReadyRun long press
electra310: @rocketjohn It's our dead mom who is also the president
JadedCynic: @rocketjohn literally yes
Juliamon: rocketjohn You were on the nose, just not the way you expected
Tom_Bruise: gotta resist that Timefall I guess?
Izandai: Y'all are really upset at the existence of gameplay in this video game.
JadedCynic: Was
TehAmelie: is there a real time limit here or is it like the 24 hour limit in MGS1?
rocketjohn: Thanks all. If i was to tune in from the beginning would it make additional sense, or should I just pick things up from here?
TacitusVigil: We can have super sophisticated watch towers...but not a gurney/wheel chair/red wagon.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you can go up and down on the tower too
electra310: I don't think it would make much more sense, no
Genie_M: you're going up that mountain - plan ahead
Alahmnat: @rocketjohn I mean, I don't want to get your hopes up about things making *more* sense...
rocketjohn: is that just true of this entire game?
Izandai: @rocketjohn If you want to understand things, I advise catching up on what you missed.
Lithobraker: Chiral crystals could literally just be sugar crystals
PixelArtDragon: @rocketjohn I think if anything it would make less sense
JadedCynic: I do like the cross-section...
NojhLivic: Golfers would love that
Alahmnat: there'd just be more things to be confused by, hehe
neisan2112: Again, carrying stuff is the gameplay, also a wagon or anything will NOT work climbing through mountains.
TehAmelie: this looks like it would be a challenging song in Audiosurf
TXC2: TehAmelie I doubt it, I suspect a plot convenient amount of time will pass regardless
Genie_M: it's the straight line there - you _may_ divert
MAPBoardgames: It is a good day to pie.
Sanityis0verrated: is it?
Juliamon: [x] doubt
wench_tacular: is it though?
KodeMage: hey, just got here, are you carrying a corpse?
Izandai: @PixelArtDragon It definitely would not make less sense.
Sanityis0verrated: is it a good day?
electra310: I tuned in just in time to see us dive down our own throat and there was a baby there who gave us a thumbs-up, so that's how today is going in Death Stranding
neisan2112: And they already said the roads were not available cus of the explosion
TXC2: KodeMage of our dead president mother no less
EvilBadman: Only got two thumbs, only get two likes
Thatwasademo: We are in fact carrying the corpse of our mother, the president of the united cities of america
X_modem: My mom's dead after I wiped out an entire town... Today's a good day!
Genie_M: no, you can give a lot
josh___something: Isn't this body on a timer?
wench_tacular: ATV's lads>?
KodeMage: @txc wtf?
rocketjohn: wait. you have to manage the weight manually?
Genie_M: and others will give you a lot
saucemaster5000: "today is a good day" said the man strapped his mother's corpse
neisan2112: It's post apocolyps
fcloud: the timer is 48 hours, and the trip takes like ten minutes
Sanityis0verrated: they already lost 1 city worth of trucks
TXC2: "it's a good day to die, when you know the reasons why."
wench_tacular: time to button
ashiok_nightmare_moose: theres also the BTs
Sanityis0verrated: why waste on on you
Genie_M: not yet
Alahmnat: hopefully the clock doesn't keep running if we stop for the day before we get there...
JadedCynic: @rocketjohn when people die - the chiral particles they've accumulated over their life become unstable and dangerous, so we have to transport the recently deceased to remote locations to be incinerated to release those particles without city-destroying explosions
TheThromborax: get you some tardigrades
wench_tacular: tie corpse to ladder and drag
TacitusVigil: I still also think you'd have a corpse delivery system developed by this point if this was such a serious issue.
Milocw: This problem has been solved, by you crashing your bike in the intro. The real question is why you haven't been able to replace it.
TXC2: music time again
KodeMage: do you not have the wheel technology and a cart?
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat well, the game WANTS to be online all the time....
Tom_Bruise: oh heck, is this copyrighted?
thetoastmonster: time for a musical interlude
Aenir798: The radio is right next to the camera.
Alahmnat: I suspect it's non-diegetic
electra310: It's on the corpse, she's got her iPod
Rhynerd: Ah, you’ve entered the Bones zone.
fcloud: background music~
aWabbajack: yes
Izandai: I assume this music is not diagetic.
rocketjohn: JadedCynic I seee...? (I don't see)
ashiok_nightmare_moose: no radio, this is for cinematic flavor
Theycallmejokke: It's just Bridges humming to himself as he walks
MAPBoardgames: Sirius installed in your brain.
wench_tacular: chunes
Genie_M: this is movie music
saucemaster5000: nah, the music just comes from the air in the postapocalypse
electra310: Deadman will sing to you
KodeMage: dece music though
frnknstn: the yellow bag has a radio
OldManJohnsonMB: His mother's corse is singing a lullaby
Carnevale_Guy: some nice extradiagetic music
SkylerRingtail: I recall some games have options to disable copywritten music. Is this one of them?
MAPBoardgames: Is this going to F with the VoD?
josh___something: it's very weird for bgm to have lyrics
JadedCynic: @rocketjohn did you see the LAST delivery mission we were on, with the CDT (corpse disposal team)
Billy_Waggledaggers: Heather is going to freak...
azureHaights: Knowing Kojima, it's not diegetic, until it is
TheThromborax: Paul, I encourage you to play around with the route maker in the map. It adds some tools that make it feel less like bumbling around
Tom_Bruise: can you sprint while holding your backpack?
EvilBadman: Your personal finger strangth prob
EvilBadman: strength
KodeMage: lol, no don't listen to the music, it's not diegetic, lol
rocketjohn: @JadedCynic i arrived around 4mins ago
TehAmelie: the only sound option this game has is volume
LiahZagarl: you cant sprint
Genie_M: @LoadingReadyRun you are a _bit_ slower, but it's much much safer that way
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you can hold them down the whole time, it only matters when going down hill or through rough water
neisan2112: You can draw a route
NojhLivic: Oooh I just realized I'd adore a PS5 update of Death Stranding, with the new haptic stuff on the controller.
fcloud: you can place markers on the map and they show up in the hud
TheThromborax: hold down X and drag between points
KodeMage: if the game is death standing why do you walk around so much?
TacitusVigil: No one will be seated during the thrilling "Corpse Delivery" portion.
TehAmelie: i don't know if i want the controller to feel like i'm really high fiving a fetus
Genie_M: you can draw a line that you can see
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun first, make points on the map where you think you can cross. then use the tool to draw a line between those points
TheThromborax: make points were there are passes, ladders, ropes, etc
Manae: You gotta wonder, if it's so important to burn bodies, would it have killed them to dig a tunnel or something?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you did it, just drop way points
azureHaights: @TacitusVigil Well, I can think of one person Kappa
Genie_M: you can plan ahead a point-to-point route
rocketjohn: this seems... fiddly
frnknstn: Is this topology based on any real-world locations?
KodeMage: isn't anywhere you like an incinerator if you're motivated enough?
fcloud: get elon musk on the horn to build one of his transportation tunnels
TheThromborax: this is very fiddly but also a very helpful tool
Izandai: See, I would assume that when it becomes necessary, the game would explain this mechanic in a way that would be more understandable than Twitch chat saying "USE THIS THING" but I guess that's just me.
TheThromborax: yes, now look at the world
josh___something: This seems a bit clunky with the controller
Genie_M: kind of, yes
fcloud: it's more helpful later when the trips are longer
TheThromborax: doh
KodeMage: ah, good ole parallax
neisan2112: You can do lots of different things, there will be more targets later
Mistborn83: When you are not in this menu there will be a highlighed path for you
DieseMarkise: you dont need to place the markers though, it places a marker for each of your steps
Theycallmejokke: Planning!? Pfff, what have planning ahead ever helped with
TXC2: !plan
LRRbot: Translator's note: Plan means Keikaku.
Mistborn83: especially on more complex routes they help guide you
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you can jsut drag and drop the markers in the route no need to make the points first
Mistborn83: yes
neisan2112: yup
Tom_Bruise: looks about right?
Genie_M: yep
TheThromborax: VICTORY
JadedCynic: oh, didn't see ANYTHING? well, the world has been devastated by 'the living and the dead'....intermingling for some reason, and as a result there's these "chiral particles" that turn out to be useful in some snazzy future tech (holograms, etc), but exposure builds up in our bodies - while we're alive our living seems to control them, but when we die, they kinda.....splodey. so we take the recently deceased away from our habitats to remote incinerators for safe disposal and gradual release
NojhLivic: Worth a try. You can always adjust later right?
TehAmelie: ah yes, carrying our mom the dead president to her funeral is not the big epic quest the game is built around, more an appetizer i guess. unexpected
Mistborn83: They are super helpful later on in the game
Genie_M: now you can see it on the main screen too
Tom_Bruise: Igor, why did you put a ladder in a river?
TheThromborax: so long as you can see your path, you're good
Theycallmejokke: Free stuff
TheThromborax: yes, it's a bridge
Genie_M: yup, free pass
ashiok_nightmare_moose: you cant take it, someone else deployed it to help you (this ones an npc)
Sanityis0verrated: think it is more Bridge than ladder
Mistborn83: Anyone in chat beat this game? I put 100+ hrs in the game.
KodeMage: sending likes? facebook integration?
neisan2112: No you'll get one later
josh___something: This seems less like a ladder, and more a bridge
TheThromborax: @Mistborn83 I did. I think others did too
zatengo subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 58 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, zatengo! (Today's storm count: 40)
Theycallmejokke: It's the game sudo-multiplayer component
MAPBoardgames: In this dystopian future, 'Likes' are the currency.
thetoastmonster: how you gonna carry a 4 metre ladder
aWabbajack: same @mistborn83
Genie_M: no, they're one use
Genie_M: you'll have them
X_modem: Mash that like button, click that bell, remember to subscribe for more ladder content.
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun pull up the "compass"
neisan2112: You can scan to get it up
NojhLivic: Ladders are just more versatile bridges
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @KodeMage not for real jsut using them to show the commodification/exploitation of huamn connection
TehAmelie: every day i find more occasions when i'd have loved to take the Greendale community college course "Ladders"
Carnevale_Guy: RB will show your line again
Genie_M: @LoadingReadyRun compass turns the line on again
miss_fortuna_90: is that blue mist behind the text new on pc? it is annoyingly codering the screen
CaptainSpam: Sam's Piggyback Ride Service
JadedCynic: @rocketjohn also, we are the son of the last President of the US, and leader of the Reconstructionist Movement (given the catchy name of "Bridges") that wanted to help keep civilisation going after a series of catastrophic events that isolated everyone...
TheThromborax: Also, every time you use your scanner you can see the line refresh
KodeMage: @ashiok_nightmare_moose I mean... that is what the real ones do too :p
Mistborn83: Paul the music btw just pop up when you are traveling. It add ambiance.
Tom_Bruise: is it just me, or does Sam walk up hills like he pooped his pants?
MAPBoardgames: When do the robot dinosaurs show up?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: right but i dont think zuck would sign on for this games message lol
KodeMage: @Tom_Bruise he does look like he's wearing a diaper.
Angreed66: Have you ever climed a hill with a body on your back
Carnevale_Guy: your webcam image is coving up the part of the HUD, you might want to shift to the bottom right corner
Mistborn83: Yes that is a very good comparison
NojhLivic: Asynchronous multiplayer
TheExactSame: so they said, you have to carry your dead mother's body miles into the wilderness, and you said, "I don't wanna" and they said, "you promised"
MAPBoardgames: Other players improve that path
Viscount16: so you're carrying all this stuff from place to place regularly across dangerous territory... why don't you have a survival pack? or at least some food/supplies?
Genie_M: sort-of-multiplayer thing, yes - you get and give things to other "porters"
Mistborn83: You wont actually interact with the other players but they things they drop like the ladders
Tom_Bruise: oh yea, it's the Norman Reedus multiverse; other Norman Reeduses can leave ladders for Norman Reeduses across universes
X_modem: asymetric multiplayer
Despoiler98: @Viscount16 well this is only going 1 KM from the city
Mistborn83: When you call out if there is a another player near you they will call back
wench_tacular: handy
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yeah theyre handy some give bonuses
JadedCynic: @rocketjohn we seem to have been estranged from being part of a previous expedition with the Bridges organization; guessing something went wrong - maybe where Sam became a 'repatriate' - a person who survives one of these big explosions and manages to keep a 'strand' back to life (like a silver cord in the astral plane?) - but maybe others didn't survive...but we were not on good terms with her - even on her deathbed - terminal cancer
Genie_M: yeah, you build kind of the same world
TehAmelie: that scanner makes me feel like we should have a terrain-altering raygun and a jetpack and a spaceship
fcloud: sam doesnt need food (or he eats offscreen, whatever). you have to manage your stamina and your blood
Izandai: @Viscount16 There's no hunger mechanic in this game.
KodeMage: this game is literally a walking simulator, right? like that's almost 100% of the game play, right?
Sanityis0verrated: was it Igor
CrazyZonie: Ladders are bridges that just go up.
TheExactSame: my quads are burning just watchin this
Mistborn83: The more you like and interact with a players stuff the more there stuff will show up in your game
Thatwasademo: it's literally a walking simulator, but for a definition of those words that "walking simulators" aren't
TXC2: KodeMage pretty much
saucemaster5000: also you dodge roll for I-frames,, just like dark souls
Mistborn83: @KodeMage 60% of the game
EvilBadman: We're just suspiciously slow movers @KodeMage
fcloud: you do a lot of walking. also climbing, driving, ziplining, etc
Theycallmejokke: Igor the ladder goblin, what a magical being
Despoiler98: @Thatwasademo this is the walkiest of walking sims
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the binocular view is better for spotting ladders etc
ashiok_nightmare_moose: and theyll then show up ont he larger map
KodeMage: This really seems like it'd be easier with a sled of some kind, lol
JadedCynic: @Izandai yeah EVEN Hideo Kojima thought hunger/thirst with a literal hiking simulator involving stamina would be TOO MUCH. Funny that.
Mistborn83: @Despoiler98 this game is not for everyone but for those that like it I thought it was amzing. Great story great visuals great mecahincs
rocketjohn: JadedCynic thank you for the recap
wench_tacular: like share and subscribe
Thatwasademo: it's a "walking simulator" in that there's a lot of depth put into simulating the act of walking itself, rather than in there being no challenging gameplay
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun this game's version of "multiplayer" is stuff like this left in the world by other players
BusTed: Thumbs up Igor
ArcOfTheConclave: A huge theme of this game is how much more we can do together and this is a game mechanic for that theme
Theycallmejokke: easy peasy
Viscount16: i mean, just give him a fanny pack with some clif bars or something to handwave away the effort of "carrying a body on your back over mountains"
JadedCynic: again, yeah, I still think one of those 'atv trucks' might still help get PART of the way.
TehAmelie: walking up steep hills takes its own skill, you know. you want to put your weight on your knee as you stretch it. also, point your toes in if you can do it comfortably
KodeMage: @Thatwasademo I mean, path/route finding is a kind of game play
Thatwasademo: Igor's being real helpful
X_modem: Igor was the corpse disposal guy you met at the begging of the game BTW.
TheExactSame: I prefer Jacob's ladders
CrazyZonie: Mom, can we take a moment to talk about what a pain in my backside you're currently being?
Despoiler98: If you wanted to have an incinerator that wouldn't blow stuff onto cities why the fuck would you build it as high up into the atmospheric winds as possible?!?!?!!?!?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @KodeMage that tech gets unlocked later, and imo helps solidify the theme of human connection also increases our capacity to travel and build etc
KodeMage: @Thatwasademo I mean, see mazes
NojhLivic: It's semi-random yeah.
Mistborn83: @LoadingReadyRun yes
CanPlayGames: Igor is a helpful chap
Genie_M: not yet, this is pre-built
RocknGrohlNerd: whats up with the kids these days, leaving ladders all around benginLol
Thatwasademo: most "walking simulators" don't even have challenging pathfinding, though?
DeM0nFiRe: Igor is actually an NPC, that's why he has 0 likes
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun THESE specific items are part of the game. this is part of the tutorial to teach you how to use ropes and stuff
whittacre: Igor was the guy who died
Mistborn83: Igor is never wrong
Thatwasademo: like, I get what you're trying to say, but it doesn't appear to be a thing that that genre does
wench_tacular: Igor is a ladder salesman
Carnevale_Guy: I feel like the game does a really good job of exploring the gameplay of walking not being a free action
Tom_Bruise: Are we even connected to the Norman Reedus Multiverse? Does Norman Reedus Igor know?
Genie_M: this is prebuilt, you didn't get to the multiplayer part
Despoiler98: noice
Mistborn83: Trust in Igor
NimrodXIV: Praise Igor
whittacre: Igor is the NPC who went with you on the first corpse run
SK__Ren: Milk run
Despoiler98: Whose taking bets we can't finish the job here
neisan2112: Oh yeah these for Igor are always here. Igor was the CDT guy
thetoastmonster: is this just Buckaroo - The Video Game
TheExactSame: man. take a couple of days off I guess
MAPBoardgames: Igor knows a thing or two about moving bodies.
Mistborn83: Is Paul camera tracking his face?
NojhLivic: Easy Peasy Corps Dispeesy
Thatwasademo: anyway, point is, this game is actually for real about walking and how challenging walking can be sometimes
JadedCynic: I do WONDER how we got all the equipment to MAKE THIS INCINERATOR up to this remote location....without MAKING A ROAD
EvilBadman: @Mistborn83 yes
niccus: damn, got by igor
wench_tacular: Is it really west of Capital Knot city if we exploded the city??
Thatwasademo: (in addition to being about other things, of course, it's a Kojima game)
Alahmnat: @JadedCynic helicopter
drdngr: igor was the friends we made along the way
neisan2112: I mean he was, he just blew up
DeM0nFiRe: JadedCynic They actually said earlier that there was a road that got blown up
BusTed: The real Igor was the waypoints we made along the way.
NojhLivic: See now you broke the immersion chat. Paul was about to have feelings.
Genie_M: Igor was the guy who went boom
Despoiler98: @JadedCynic If you wanted to have an incinerator that wouldn't blow stuff onto cities why the fuck would you build it as high up into the atmospheric winds as possible?!?!?!!?!?
KodeMage: @Thatwasademo challenging? I dunno, different folks find different things challenging. It's definitely solving a puzzle of some kind most of the time.
X_modem: Igor was the guy who died at the beginning, he left those there before he died.
Theycallmejokke: Igor is as real as you want them to be
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @wench_tacular that was central not capital
RocknGrohlNerd: @busted benginFingers
tenthtechpriest: the real igor was the friends we made along the way
fcloud: we get to build roads later :3
frnknstn: @JadedCynic maybe the rain has cleared all the roads, only heavily-maintained buildings can still stand
TehAmelie: tfw you liked someone's post and then find out they died
Carnevale_Guy: Yeah Igor was one of the Corpse Disposal guys who died in the prologue. So it makes sense that he would have routes made to the incinerator.
ArcOfTheConclave: Igor was on the CDT and is now dead. he was the one with you in the back of the truck.
TehAmelie: well, post, ladder, etc
JadedCynic: @DeM0nFiRe oh crap; watching several playthroughs I've never noticed that - thank you. <3
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @Despoiler98 it covers the atmosphere already, thats where the chiral particals are normally
thetoastmonster: "did anyone order a dead president?"
wench_tacular: how much damage to "package"?
Theycallmejokke: One president, extra crispy please
ashiok_nightmare_moose: hence the lost communications etc
LordZarano: United City-States of America
saucemaster5000: do... you get likes for cremating your mom?
BusTed: Cold stuff, comin' through.
Izandai: @Despoiler98 Why is this the thing you're upset about and not that dead bodies turn into hundred-foot-tall tar monsters?
DeM0nFiRe: @JadedCynic Yeah I didnt notice it in my own playthrough, I only noticed it watching Paul haha
TheThromborax: damaging corpses can get you a game over
ArcOfTheConclave: Human dignity Paul!
KodeMage: so, time wise how long has this building been abandoned? this is hundreds of years after the apocalypse or less than that?
Genie_M: you get less likes, ultimately a gameover
CrazyZonie: One problem... Bodies require A LOT OF ENERGY to cremate. I mean, a lot of energy to get the thousands of degrees C to incinerate HR.
JadedCynic: @frnknstn yeah, erosion, complicated by BT incursions and explosions might well kinda destroy our infrastructure - raods etc
Despoiler98: @Izandai look I'm picky about my plot holes
PixelArtDragon: Ah yes, "holding a corpse of a visionary", no symbolism here
CrazyZonie: Someone's gonna notice
MAPBoardgames: I'd like this one to get the presidential treatment.
Talin06: cant let the plot juice out
JadedCynic: finally, the poor guy get's to actually have a moment REALLY alone with his family
Tom_Bruise: Look, sometimes you just need to cremate a whole enemy battalion all at once
JadedCynic: uh oh
TacitusVigil: Wait, what?
X_modem: lol @mapboardgames
Despoiler98: rainbow bad
Theycallmejokke: a painbow
Genie_M: and this is why you cremate far from cities
rocketjohn: time fall?
Despoiler98: OR just shelter in place?
CAKHost: It's going to spiral and go into a lake, right?
wench_tacular: or maybe wait it out?
KodeMage: @CrazyZonie that is a lot of smoke for one body, they must use a lot of energy all at once
BlueMechanic: the smoke means a new president has been selected
Alahmnat: couldn't we, like, ride out the timefall indoors *here*?
thetoastmonster: Surely staying indoors is the safer option?
wench_tacular: baby?
RvLeshrac: Had a meeting, did Paul drop the President?
CaptainSpam: The other cargo? But that's my lunch!
Thatwasademo: ah, time for a plot
fcloud: "timefall" seems like a word that must be a james bond movie, right? like, how could it not be
kalira77: why can't he just stay inside?
ArcOfTheConclave: BB!
RocknGrohlNerd: @pixelartdragon nope non at all wheelerPog
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB lrrSPOOP awabbaCheeseBB
TehAmelie: i guess they have a modded MInecraft style robot that harvests trees for burning in between cremations
BusTed: BabyRage
JadedCynic: "Show me The Baby"
Despoiler98: its a baby
wench_tacular: sure, blame the baby
josh___something: "please burn the baby"
TheExactSame: get a job, baby!
josh___something: Thanks game
Despoiler98: WELP
RocknGrohlNerd: stupid baby
CrazyZonie: Is that thing Norman Fetus?
electra310: Oops, sorry, no burning today, stars are wrong
RvLeshrac: Listen, that BB is on borrowed time anyway.
NimrodXIV: welp, no power no burning
saucemaster5000: It's not Boss Baby
JadedCynic: welp, too late - the incinrator stopped working - can't burn it now
KodeMage: I mean, ok, is that not his job?
wench_tacular: literal weight of the world
Thatwasademo: anyway, guess what time it is
Tom_Bruise: "You have to understand, we have to reach a strict babyburning quato and we're really far behind!"
TehAmelie: i know, leave em out in the rain so they grow up in a minute
BusTed: baby wasn't hitting the metrics
Sly_chocobo: Look, if that baby met its KPI's then it wouldnt be in this mess
FoxBoxGamers: "it can't be repaired" what manner of repairs are USUALLY carried out on babies?
TXC2: I had to step away, how do we have baby?
Despoiler98: greeaaaaaat
JadedCynic: it's defective, it failed the ONE time
RvLeshrac: Not a baby! A BB!
MyBuddySuperfly: oh no, the hands again
neisan2112: Definitely not a real baby
RocknGrohlNerd: run its corona
Sanityis0verrated: well I got a call at the worst time
JadedCynic: and now remember, the hands on the ends of those loooong feelers
Genie_M: it keeps these away from cities
KodeMage: this is why I carry flour in my utility belt, invisible creatures
Aenir798: The point is it has the bad things happen away from all the people
Thatwasademo: also if it's burnt it doesn't explode, at least
HavenJunde: the cremation just prevents the body from making a huge city-destroying crater
wench_tacular: oh noes!
RocknGrohlNerd: good question Paul, no more questions avngrAYAYA
neisan2112: Bodies burn at over 1000F gotta have a thing for that
KodeMage: baby bait?
MAPBoardgames: Void Vore?
wench_tacular: so not my problem then
Despoiler98: bb time
Tom_Bruise: yea but this guy lives when he dies, so it's fine
TheExactSame: could you get eaten somewhere else please
CaptainSpam: Man, last time I had a voidout, it was NOT pretty.
josh___something: WHY are they screaming into the speaker... sound LITERALLY attracts them
electra310: Throw that baby at the monsters
fcloud: reboot ya baby
wench_tacular: hi daddy
JadedCynic: and it seems they don't have the equipment to build a new incinerator at this stage
TXC2: where are we puting that into ?
Theycallmejokke: Time to redeem your self baby
adamtjames: paul why is your camera moving
Lithobraker: Why don't they use a HEPA filter to not release the magic dust into the atmosphere?
CrazyZonie: @TXC2 I was thinking the same
JadedCynic: be nice
saucemaster5000: oop we plugged into Hannibal
Thatwasademo: paul's camera is moving because of new facetracking technology
BusTed: They don't like it when you tap on the glass.
wench_tacular: yeah, that wouldn't be distracting
KodeMage: @adamtjames it appears to be tracking him.
TehAmelie: we shall call you Fritz, because you're on it
EvilBadman: @adamtjames He's testing nvidia face tracking
josh___something: "Start u little shit" norman reedus said to the jar baby xD
JadedCynic: @Lithobraker because dense build-ups of those particles are what causes this stuff
CanPlayGames: PrideHeartL lrrSPOOP
MAPBoardgames: Let's put this baby into gear!
RvLeshrac: Don't you hate it when you can't get your baby to crank on a cold day?
RocknGrohlNerd: big spoops
Despoiler98: that is a really obnoxious sensor
NimrodXIV: I love that the baby pod has a little charm hanging on it
JadedCynic: they're just dumping their garbage safely away from their habitats, not solving the problem
aWabbajack: lrrSPOOP
TacitusVigil: Is he talking to himself or the baby?
RvLeshrac: Fun fact: Sensors designed for detecting life-threatening conditions are *exceptionally* irritating.
CrazyZonie: You're worried about your footsteps with that thing clacking?
Thatwasademo: it's being as loud as it can in ways you'll notice but they won't
Tom_Bruise: "Sir, we've cracked the code; We've developed this baby that'll sense ghosts really loudly"
KodeMage: what are these things?
MAPBoardgames: Video games have taught me: If you bend your knees, they can't see you.
RocknGrohlNerd: yes dont make any noise, except for the sensor/probe
RvLeshrac: Because if it isn't irritating as shit, people will ignore them.
Milocw: I don't think the ghosts can actually like say see, after all he cares more about covering his breath so there "sight" must be wierd
TXC2: oh good, baby noises :p
Lithobraker: I feel like the Nvidia face tracking needs a low pass filter and hysteresis.
fcloud: you can scan to reveal them i think?
Genie_M: if you stop yo can see them again
JadedCynic: @KodeMage 'BT's - kinda 'ghosts' that are bridging the dimensions between the living and the dead - with bad side effects from the intereaction
kalira77: did we establish what BT stands for?
neisan2112: Yeah it's more breath not movement that gets them
fcloud: BT is ... Bridge Thing?
Thatwasademo: they can't see, and they can't hear machines, but they can feel breath
RvLeshrac: Definitely don't walk directly into one.
JadedCynic: they cause time to accelerate - grass grows and dies in a moment, people age, etc
fcloud: Beached Thing
HavenJunde: BT is Beached Thing
Aenir798: I thought this was a walking simulator game, not a horror game.
CrazyZonie: Oh, and the baby's cries won't alert the ghosts?
TehAmelie: Body Troubles
RocknGrohlNerd: why not s
Sly_chocobo: Wow you are getting.. alarmingly close lol
JadedCynic: Beached yeah, on the fringe (beach) between the land (living) and the sea (dead)
Genie_M: and this is why you run sometimes
MAPBoardgames: I showed up to the stream an hour late. Was any part about what's going on explained in that time?
Alephred: Oo, Death Stranding.
TXC2: MAPBoardgames not really no
Izandai: @MAPBoardgames Yes.
Tom_Bruise: Yes and no.
JadedCynic: @Aenir798 why can't it be both? (Spoilers - later it gets to be a ubisoft-style base-take-over-shooter too)
KodeMage: @JadedCynic ghosts? or aliens? Is there magic in this world?
Thatwasademo: eh, we know that if the Bridges Touchers touch Bridges there's a giant explosion which is bad
Izandai: No, just yes.
RvLeshrac: This is still basically the prologue.
Theycallmejokke: Where's the ghost busters when you need them
fcloud: i like that your footprints stick around, really helps with finding your way around without having the map open all the time
CanPlayGames: Are those the pokemon Yamask?
TehAmelie: this rope deserves a lot of likes imo
Izandai: There is stuff that hasn't been explained, but there's also stuff that has. So has any part of this been explained? Yes.
MAPBoardgames: @TXC2 @Izandai @Tom_Bruise Thank's for the full Twitch chat experience.
RvLeshrac: Please Like the maximum anything you use.
JadedCynic: @KodeMage seems to be more ghosts than aliens, and for 'magic'? See Asimov and/or Clarke about the dividing line between high-tech and magic ;)
RvLeshrac: I mean, except this stuff, because this is NPC stuff.
wench_tacular: 10/10, would use again
fcloud: i mean, some aspects have been "explained". whether those explanations hold together is a point on which people differ
Tom_Bruise: @MAPBoardgames you're about as welcome as can be I suppose
Lithobraker: @JadedCynic the most unrealistic part about this game is nobody's exploiting the time acceleration to mine cryptocurrency
JadedCynic: we have scanners that can 'sense' those things, and also give us holographic relief displays like we're seeing
RvLeshrac: Also, you can just *hammer* the Like button
fcloud: you've gotta be almost out of the BT zone
RvLeshrac: Lots of people miss that, and just Like a single time.
fcloud: there we go
KodeMage: @JadedCynic yeah, that's what I'm asking though, which side is this on of the "sufficiently advanced technology" line are we supposed to be on? According to the game's explaination.
EvilBadman: You left the general area that was attracting them
RvLeshrac: That all-clear wave from the BB
JadedCynic: @Lithobraker Hideo Kojima's weird, but even HE has some ethics :D
neisan2112: I still feel this game shows that people ask way to many questions way to early in. We're dropped in the middle of this world, a lot is sort of explained, but not really. Just gotta keep going.
Izandai: I think that's the indication that you have passed by the enemies.
SK__Ren: Its explaining why your stamina was recovering quickly before and is about to be really slow
neisan2112: Yup
JadedCynic: @KodeMage I think it's 'future tech to hand-wave away problems with the narrative
RvLeshrac: Yep.
X_modem: Nice job!
RvLeshrac: You can also pee.
EvilBadman: It's got what you crave
Tom_Bruise: Quick, drink your ration of Monster Energy, soldier!
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun they were a sponsor of the game's production
Angnor33: Wow
saucemaster5000: wow
josh___something: i'm disappointex
Thatwasademo: It's a magical canteen that turns timefall rain into untimefall monster energy
raulghoulia: is this a sponsored stream?
RvLeshrac: You do need to keep hydrated.
fcloud: i thing if you grip it shows you
PixelArtDragon: I wonder if there are mods that can change it
CrazyZonie: Product placement. Wonder if that ran afoul of British Product placement laws.
Alephred: This game is sci fi rather than fantasy.
TehAmelie: i think the game has a good tempo of exposition. it's still funny to rip on Kojima though
RocknGrohlNerd: ding ding , sponsor money i guess
Thatwasademo: hey, Sam took his hood down, that means we're back to pleasant walking
JadedCynic: ♫the sun'll come out, tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar...♫
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Conan Obrein is in the game
Genie_M: music starts when you're safe for a walk
CaptainSpam: You're not real, Igor, but we're still throwing likes your way.
RvLeshrac: Igor's dead.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yeah music usually mean scenic, you can still trip lol
MAPBoardgames: If you are too wound-up after your encounter with the smoke monsters, may I recommend 5-hour Lethargy?
TehAmelie: not only is he not real, but he's dead
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie I mean yeah, it's still a good game, even with the weirdness
Lithobraker: The fact that Sam only drinks monster energy honestly explains a bunch about the qualities his pee possesses.
Thatwasademo: some terrain is just slippery, like in real life
Alephred: This is one of the few games I've played to completion, recently. I do think it's something special.
Alahmnat: uneven terrain is still uneven when you're not carrying anything...
Genie_M: quick turns still throw you off balance
Izandai: @neisan2112 Yeah, people seem to be shockingly unwilling to let this game explain things in its own time. They'd apparently rather assume that if an explanation is not immediately presented, it never will be.
Tom_Bruise: He just has a bit of an inner ear infection, okay? Monster Energy will perk you right up
RvLeshrac: This is real music from Low Roar.
RocknGrohlNerd: figure yourself out...okey mom
Sanityis0verrated: this music is making me e
EvilBadman: They're a publishing company
Sanityis0verrated: sleepy
RvLeshrac: I think you're probably fine with the music in DS.
KodeMage: this music is going to get you muted isn't it? is there a setting for non-copyrighted music only?
Alephred: Low Roar is a real band, as are CHVRCHES
neisan2112: @Izandai It's how I feel about so many movies. Also why I hate Cinema Sins
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun maybe that's the problem - he's more used to being burdened and isn't comfortable with not having a load :D
aWabbajack: I uploaded vod to youtube it get a claim
Vivid_Soul subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 27 months!
Vivid_Soul: Thanks for the entertainment
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Vivid_Soul! (Today's storm count: 41)
SK__Ren: So... Paul Streams Control for Play it Forward, a year later its on Talking Sim. Can we expect Death Stranding on Talking Sim next year? Hmmm?
Sanityis0verrated: I mean you are immortal so what does it matter paul
CrazyZonie: Meanwhile you're just kiting the bad guys to the last human city
aWabbajack: twitch vod is fine
Izandai: @neisan2112 Oh, that's only one of MANY things to hate about Cinema Sins.
fcloud: man, we can go so much faster without a corpse
Sanityis0verrated: just let the cities burn
Izandai: @JadedCynic Symbolism?
MAPBoardgames: @SK__Ren Chances are good.
FoxBoxGamers: the presence of MONSTER into this hellscape future is really upsetting
TehAmelie: Norm has a lot of endurance too
FoxBoxGamers: like... where are the OTHER brands?
JadedCynic: @Izandai whoa mind-blown.gif
Izandai: lol
thetoastmonster: never skip leg day or corpse day
KodeMage: lol
tenthtechpriest: you're saying it was dead weight?
Tom_Bruise: this dude can run when he's not carrying the future of civilization on his back
lirazel64: Why is the incinerator so far from the city
neisan2112: The existance of Monster here means Coke exists
Lord_ZYRK: The man's in shape
JadedCynic: (no seriously, I never thought of that until you pointed it out
Alahmnat: that was Central Knot City
Vyous: Central Knot exploded I think
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Central Knot exploded
saucemaster5000: yeah it's tough to carry the weight of your ancestors
DeM0nFiRe: I thnk it was Central Knot City that went kablooey
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun no central knot blew up, not capital knot
EvilBadman: @lirazel64 Corpses cause BTs and explosions
SK__Ren: @FoxBoxGamers After the Brand Wars, all Energy Drinks are Monster Energy
Alephred: You're currently carrying practically nothing, which is why you can sprint like a champ.
Tom_Bruise: Knots? Strands? Get it?!
fcloud: because they're connected by strandas?
DoodlestheGreat: Bridges. Jeff Bridges.
fcloud: *strands
KodeMage: interesting branding, "bridges"
TXC2: bah dum tiss
Izandai: @lirazel64 When corpses are burned they release a bunch of toxic particulates.
RocknGrohlNerd: nice pun there
MAPBoardgames: A torn rope says "I'm a frayed knot."
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yes to signify tied strands and concentration
Genie_M: they are knots of a web
Theycallmejokke: Nut City... He he he
TehAmelie: of course Bridges is building a web of knots, we've seen the map
FoxBoxGamers: I mean Bridges has an obvious symbol of a web or net... which would make the nodes knots...
wench_tacular: oh now you tell us
Angreed66: The problem is only human corpses cause problems or that deer would've crated and My knowledge of human anatomy makes me call bs
saucemaster5000: do you get a patronus later
JadedCynic: I'm not happy with their vagueness in names - if ALL their settlements are called "___ Knot City" and they always use an adjective beginning with a 'C' seems suboptimal
TehAmelie: it just barely makes sense in English. maybe they should have gone with Webb or something
fcloud: do not dispose my bb!
Sanityis0verrated: it's our bb now

aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB
FoxBoxGamers: there's a LOT going on with these babies
TehAmelie: three months going on five hundred
Riiiiiiis: it's actually pronounced "mas" like in Las (vegas)
Sanityis0verrated: I mean we can just blackmail them if we don't want to burn the baby
saucemaster5000: is it voiced by Alec Baldwin? Cause that would explain a lot.
JadedCynic: @Alephred oh were you here at the start?
Riiiiiiis: Me danish
lirazel64: This whole baby thing is making this momma bear twitch.
BusTed: All of those likes were from Die-Hardman.
fcloud: leveling WAY up
Alephred: @JadedCynic I just missed the start. I have completed this game, however.
JadedCynic: totally secret disposal of the PotUS body that we have not yet released to the public - LIKED
fcloud: we should incinerate our mother's corpse more often
PixelArtDragon: Remember to like, share, and subscribe for more content
TehAmelie: i'm 99% certain Sam won't let anything happen to Baby
Tom_Bruise: Diehardman just spend the last 37 minutes spamming the like-button on that covert mission of yours
Thatwasademo: we've got a whole 07 miscellaneous
Thatwasademo: lrrHORN
Lord_ZYRK: Powerful miscellaneous
Billy_Waggledaggers: Don't shake babies.
FoxBoxGamers: don't shake that, deadguy
JadedCynic: @Alephred we set 'our birthday' to April 2nd - we'll see the easter egg next stream]
fcloud: "your errand boy" is exactly what you are, sammy
BusTed: 🤔
electra310: I don't think you're supposed to shake those
Alephred: @JadedCynic Ah, nice!
JadedCynic: actually sam, we kinda ARE 'their delivery boy, Mr. Porter™
Tom_Bruise: it'll be a Ghost-President I guess
Hexi_Lexi: hi LRR Fans! hi Paul!!! hope yall are doing well in these rough times, and reminder that i love you all more than words can express!!!
CrazyZonie: Paul, I present to you, the power of Disney Anamatronics.
Styxseus: The President is dead! Long live the President!
JadedCynic: yay, more dreams
PixelArtDragon: Turns out we have a spare President in the back room
TXC2: hello Hexi_Lexi welcome
fcloud: wait, am i dead again already?
JadedCynic: without even dying this time
TehAmelie: hi Lexi
FoxBoxGamers: HEELS in SAND
saucemaster5000: It's just a puppet with your mom's face taped to it
TehAmelie: is that made of plastic?
ContingentCat: that's a really bad dreamcatcer
TehAmelie: hey it's chapter me
JadedCynic: @FoxBoxGamers she's THAT good (Lindsay Wagner WAS The Bionic Woman)
Thatwasademo: it looked like twine and a steel frame
Hexi_Lexi: @TehAmelie LUL
XandaxDK: major product placement incoming :D
neisan2112: S Y M B O L I S M
ContingentCat: ~symbolism~
Tom_Bruise: it's what cuffs you to this mortal coil? Like a strand? Get it?!
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun there's NO symbolism at ALL with that, I swear
Sanityis0verrated: in case you try to run
TXC2: have.....have we always had that dreamcatcher?
josh___something: 'Die-Hardman'
whittacre: @LoadingReadyRun The clips of a handcuff are called "strands"
RocknGrohlNerd: @hexi_lexi you are too so sweet thank you. lrrHEART
Theycallmejokke: Time to chuk some Monster Engery
X_modem: I didn't know we had a president. I thought we were an atonomus collective.
electra310: Go on, stinky boy
HavenJunde: "private"
Tom_Bruise: "Look at my toys"
ashiok_nightmare_moose: love all the Norman Reedus mugs we get in the room
JadedCynic: yeah, we get a little 4th wall breaking with Norman here :D
Alahmnat: a collection of our failures, nice
CanPlayGames: A mamento. Of the men you watched die
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the mirror is fun
Hexi_Lexi: @RocknGrohlNerd only because you deserve it, you wonderful person who everyone here values and loves!
TXC2: I feel like that was litteraly Norman Reedus pointing at someting for us :p
BusTed: Cute.
Thatwasademo: you wanna drink some Monster?
JadedCynic: BTs in 'Army Men' :D
NimrodXIV: lol
josh___something: how... how is that standing
Alephred: The worst Army Men
TehAmelie: are those five cans always standing there? no safe way to defuse them i guess
Alahmnat: 3d printers have come a long way
wench_tacular: gotta give the people what they want
Hexi_Lexi: BUTTS
JadedCynic: @josh___something 'chiral particles' ;)
neisan2112: BUTT
RvLeshrac: Wait for it.
GapFiller: oooh shower scene
CanPlayGames: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! A rat has dug its teeth into your head.
MAPBoardgames: This room indicates that we are a floating camera. Like POD in Neir.
Tom_Bruise: his clothes are a hologram
FoxBoxGamers: I love the EXTRA-frosted glass in the middle of the already frosted glass
JadedCynic: yeah, new boots are always a good idea
frnknstn: butt count is 2?
ArcOfTheConclave: @TehAmelie there is a sidequest that replaces them with beer
josh___something: this is the 3rd time they've shown norman reedus naked... why?
TXC2: 100000% they monitor our poops
TehAmelie: reminds me of Snake's showers in MGS5 where he jams himself into a shower stall covered in gore and comes out covered in his uniform one second later
RvLeshrac: josh___something: Kojima wanted it.
Alephred: There is a lot of naked Norman in this game.
Hexi_Lexi: "take a shower so i can call you in the shower"
RocknGrohlNerd: any more calling butts. and segre will appear lrrSERGE
Sanityis0verrated: she dead though
ContingentCat: that was a fast election
LurkerSpine: just got out of the work meeting... I thought the president was dead?
saucemaster5000: man guillermo del toro is bossy
JadedCynic: @TXC2 well, our 'waste excretion' yeah
Theycallmejokke: Deadman is like a cat when you go to the toilet
ashiok_nightmare_moose: one of the things said was "no one can know the president is dead" its called opsec people!
Alephred: The President is dead. We haven't spread the word yet.
Hexi_Lexi: hey look its Bane from DC's Batman Kappa
MAPBoardgames: 'Merica!
RocknGrohlNerd: 'merica
Despoiler98: hologram
JadedCynic: holograms, son
RocknGrohlNerd: time to get liberated
Despoiler98: sooooooo no election then
Alahmnat: oh, we really ARE pulling a Dave
electric_claire: I guess the presidency is hereditary now?
TXC2: Don't call your mother by her first name
Tom_Bruise: All hail the Hereditary Presidency!
Hexi_Lexi: @TehAmelie hey look its you! :p
fcloud: hey sam. im the president. your first assignment is to get me another outfit, im sick of wearing a red formal dress 24/7
electra310: President is now a hereditary position?
ContingentCat: not really a president if there's no election
keroan0: She is really tall in those heels
Theycallmejokke: So mom wasn't America's last female president
LurkerSpine: wait, didn't the mom look exactly like her for that one second?
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun she's really her mother's daughter
FoxBoxGamers: excuse me
TehAmelie: that's not me. my name is pronounced like Amelie in the movie Amelie :p
PixelArtDragon: So it turns out she WASN'T the last female president.
JadedCynic: things happened during Bridges I
Despoiler98: ummmmm so she's undead?
CanPlayGames: Shes a Lich?
FoxBoxGamers: good middle name
MAPBoardgames: Didn't America blow up last time we elected a female president? Didn't we learn our lesson?
Alahmnat: really?
TXC2: so we can't have an Election why?
Despoiler98: I dont remember an election
HavenJunde: middle name: America
Tom_Bruise: Seriously, what happened to the Vice President?
saucemaster5000: she's a vampire clearly
JadedCynic: um, maybe SAM, the SON of Bridget who isn't dead at ALL?
fcloud: this might be a good time to introduce you to the concept of "an election"
frnknstn: The great American tradition of hereditary rule
josh___something: wait... new? do we get to hold a funeral now?
RocknGrohlNerd: vampire or mimic, either or
JadedCynic: @TXC2 the republic crumbles - there's not even communication between settlements outside of where we've seen
ContingentCat: @MAPBoardgames this one isn't elected, maybe a female dictator(?) will go better
TehAmelie: i did once deduce the name most guaranteed to make a person rich and famous is Akira American Creed
TXC2: hey Remember when American didn't have a war to not have a Monarchy? Kappa
fcloud: also, didnt they just tell us that there can be no other president, and that old mom president's death had to be kept a secret?
neisan2112: Everything's fucked, gotta do something until we get reconnected
wench_tacular: Now that's what I call Bridges
JadedCynic: yeah, well, Sam was part of Bridges I
FoxBoxGamers: @TehAmelie that IS a strong name
TehAmelie: and gender neutral!
electric_claire: These people are basically America LARPers, right?
JadedCynic: funny that - almost like a hereditary thing
FoxBoxGamers: I need you to not say 'edge knot' pls
Alahmnat: @FoxBoxGamers oh good, it's not just me
josh___something: Wht is there so many knot's in this name
FoxBoxGamers: @Alahmnat IT SURE ISN'T
TXC2: JadedCynic I know, but the fact that they're not even trying is kinda leading me to think these are bad guys :P
BusTed: Good job, graphics department.
fcloud: this was in the 8-bit era
TehAmelie: too soon, but good job
JadedCynic: Edge Knot City - seattle or LA or San Fran?
LurkerSpine: Wait, is it Am-uh-lee or Ah-muh-lee?
RvLeshrac: Am-el-ee
fcloud: those guys look like little master chiefs
Alephred: Depends who's saying her naem.
Alephred: *name
RocknGrohlNerd: taken? call liam neeson
JadedCynic: didn't we see one of them with the Igor CDT run?
ContingentCat: Wow the name is so subtle I wonder if these are the bad guys
Tom_Bruise: Their commander is the one and only Skullomania. Be careful, Sam
LurkerSpine: Didn't we see one of those dudes before we got blown up?
TXC2: also have the same mask as diehardman :p
JadedCynic: ^^^
josh___something: demens... subtle
wildpeaks: oh nothing in this game is subtle
MTGRanger: This feels a lot like fallout
RvLeshrac: If you want subtle, you've Kojimad to the wrong place.
MAPBoardgames: Non-unionist?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: anti unification
Lithobraker: So we're fighting antifa Kappa
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun 'leave me alone' I don't wanna join
Thatwasademo: It means the opposition to the reconstructionists, naturally
WonderfulGlory: People who don't want to be "American"
fcloud: excuse me, his name is skullman. deadman and diehardman must fight skullman
TehAmelie: i think we could just call the factions The Party in Government and The Party in Opposition
SkylerRingtail: I mean, America has always had a big xenophobic contingent...
ashiok_nightmare_moose: well bunker dwellers, preppers but after the thing they prepared for
electric_claire: I need an MST3k of this game
neisan2112: No it was a very specific word
Despoiler98: really seems like handcuffs to me
Sanityis0verrated: forced bonds are shackles
fcloud: maybe we should have not made them look and function exactly like handcuffs. thats on us
josh___something: 'So we're making you do this by force'
Alahmnat: oh no, another all-caps word
sspahgettioss: shackles are just a mindset
JadedCynic: to exploit the many to benefit the few, again
FoxBoxGamers: both of those statements can be true-- they are shackles symbolic of our bond
TXC2: it's a mixed metaphor......
fcloud: here we goooo
wench_tacular: do I look like a sysadmin
ashiok_nightmare_moose: the duality is part of the story, theres always a cost
Genie_M: this is not very subtle sometimes
Tom_Bruise: I must admit, I kinda respect the whole "subtext is for coward" thing, but this is getting a bit too much
TXC2: why does it float?
Thatwasademo: weren't we already wearing that?
josh___something: why is it floating
SkylerRingtail: But...those are just USB keys?
JadedCynic: funny, didn't we HAVE one of those?
TehAmelie: hey i already that!
MAPBoardgames: They're not handcuffs, they're 'Freedom Bracelets'!
whittacre: chiral particles have anti-gravity properties
FoxBoxGamers: I appreciate the boop boop boop of them walking on the hologram
Manae: oh god the 80's arcade boops
PsychoI3oy: only on the beach
Lithobraker: @SkylerRingtail *special USB keys
fcloud: good news, i nominated myself president. err, king. king of america
Stoffern: The technology is based on the chiral dust floats
Electrodyne: It's very convenient that they have this detailed presentation ready to be shown to any visitors
X_modem: Cross country network IT work.
JadedCynic: @SkylerRingtail high-tech solid equivalent to usb keys, but yeah
fcloud: ineffective!
JadedCynic: called it
Alahmnat: what did she think was going to happen?
neisan2112: Same as it ever was!
SK__Ren: Water flowing underground....
RvLeshrac: "Can you all stop running through me?"
fcloud: well diehardman, you dont have to run through me too. rude
rocketjohn: walking through p[eople seems rude.
TXC2: "this is not my beautiful white house"
JadedCynic: but....I'm not changing my stance, tho
Rhynerd: Same as it ever was? So’s Sam’s just letting the days go by?
Wiliart: Why is this guy wearing a mask again?
aWabbajack: awabbaCheeseBB awabbaCheeseBB
TehAmelie: please stop walking through me my antivirus throws up every time
Tom_Bruise: "Look, Die-Hardman, your face plating is making it kinda hard to take things easy!"
FoxBoxGamers: this cutscene sure is... "we don't give a shit about your choices, sam"
RvLeshrac: Don't shake the baby.
SkylerRingtail: I thought you said you couldn't fix it?
Alahmnat: @Wiliart no idea
TXC2: Wiliart we don't know
NimrodXIV: so the BB is ...fine... now?
fcloud: just had to replace a gasket and tighten up the bolts. your baby is good to go. see you in 5000 miles
josh___something: @Wiliart social distancing :P
Tom_Bruise: BBs! oh I get it, It's like BaBies
Lithobraker: I thought you said you couldn't repair it?
RvLeshrac: Tom_Bruise: Bridge Baby
RocknGrohlNerd: shake the baby
PendelSteven: 'Ello
nihilus_42: how are you fine tuning a baby?
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun what fills humans with those chiral particles? all this tech we're using powered by chiral particles? including the 'cables'
JadedCynic: brb
PendelSteven: Even if we're ending soon, glad I could say hi
DeM0nFiRe: Actually the BB clearly stands for Battleship
Sanityis0verrated: they are bridges between life and death
TXC2: hello PendelSteven welcome
TehAmelie: Stand Still Stay Silent has cats, it's great
BlueMechanic: Maybe it's the cool baby we were told about from the opening of My Brother My Brother and Me
FoxBoxGamers: considering how the BBs work, puppies would be MORE upsetting... but you won't see why for a while
Tom_Bruise: @DeM0nFiRe the Battleship Botemkin eh?
Sanityis0verrated: I guess you need a level of sentience
MAPBoardgames: Sam Bridges: Beach Bum
TehAmelie: i think this is four times
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @JadedCynic why ask then leave? the chiral particle are part of the apocalyptic event that shattered the world
EvilBadman: At least 4
Alahmnat: sounds like a new overlay element
Theycallmejokke: Once a baby, the other a guy that's really really good at carrying stuff. Togther they solve crime
fcloud: norman reedus does do a lot of waking up
Lithobraker: Heels in sand? Impressive
Sanityis0verrated: we have clothes this time though
PendelSteven: Yeah no, my brother wanted to watch the highlights with me just before I joined here
Electrodyne: and now we're Baltaar?
RocknGrohlNerd: he likes his naps, thats all
LurkerSpine: Every time Sam wakes up, take a drink
TXC2: maybe he's narcoleptic ?
fcloud: so she can even telepresence to his dreams?
PendelSteven: Is it though? You look like some actor I know
wildpeaks: yes, we're definitely looking at her.. necklace
PendelSteven: Oh
Thatwasademo: yup, Kojima is fascinated by a single English root word again
Tom_Bruise: Oh I get it, it's like strands
RocknGrohlNerd: surely, necklace
TehAmelie: the Pacific ocean has a lotta shore lady
PendelSteven: Stranded... Interesting note: beach in Dutch is still: strand
rustenskurk: Here we are hearing Kojima's though process when coming up with the game. "Strand... Stranded... Stranding... Ooh"
MAPBoardgames: They will have a whale of a time clearing this beach.
fcloud: wait why are you taking away the dreamcatcher you gave me
PendelSteven: a strand is a synonym for a beach in English still
Theycallmejokke: Hey! That lady stole our neckless
RocknGrohlNerd: and gave it back
TXC2: yeah this is oddly sexual for a dream (?) of our sister
wildpeaks: this methaphor doesn't have a leg to strand on
PendelSteven: literally stems from getting stranded with a boat in the sand
fcloud: hey you changed clothes!
Tom_Bruise: Look, she just really wanted to give you a necklace, but didn't have a necklace to give
FoxBoxGamers: palette shifts??
RocknGrohlNerd: @wildpeaks lol
fcloud: wait now shes wearing red again
Electrodyne: and "not" sounds like "knot" which is a way two strings can be joined together
Aenir798: Her clothes changed???
Alephred: Notice the subtle handprints on Bridge's skin, those increase over time with encounters with BTs.
RvLeshrac: This is the Folger's commercial all over again.
ashiok_nightmare_moose: death is stranded and is stranding the remaining people in their isolated cities
HavenJunde: the Beach isn't technically a dream, i think
MAPBoardgames: Was I the only one who noticed she was wearing gray in that one shot?
FoxBoxGamers: is the dress red or grey? welcome back to 2017
ashiok_nightmare_moose: yeah the beach is 'real'
fcloud: that looks like a continuity error, even in this game
electra310: These two aren't actually related, right? Please?
PendelSteven: Erm, I dunno, I'm red colour blind
TXC2: MAPBoardgames no I saw it too
PendelSteven: at least it's the same dress
TehAmelie: "oh yeah, it turns out dreamcatchers are complicated spiritual affairs Native Americans have been doing for thousands of years and i should never have made this dumb thing out of plastic"
Tom_Bruise: Okay, who let Earth get that close to the sun?
fcloud: who keeps handcuffing him to the bed?
kharnor: haha yeah those are totally not shackles
FoxBoxGamers: himself, presumably?
PendelSteven: Norman Porter
wildpeaks: we certainly have an interesting relationship with our sister
TXC2: again, have we always had that?
RvLeshrac: Put on the sunglasses!
vouru converted from a Prime sub to a Tier 1 sub!
vouru converted from a Prime sub to a Tier 1 sub!
RocknGrohlNerd: another waking up moment, this calls for a drinking game,
rocketjohn: Die Hardman?!
PendelSteven: Yeah, sorry, that's probably why I can't play this game
Lithobraker: Sam is just a sleep walker, that's why he needs the cuffs
kharnor: Die hardman?
TehAmelie: Die Hardman? i love your movies
fcloud: basic -- and i do mean basic -- amenities
Dmc3628: sure love me my branded Monster in shot
FoxBoxGamers: also we got an actual physical THING from a dream?
RvLeshrac: How many days has it been since you took a dump?
DoodlestheGreat: Monster Energy drinks...
ContingentCat: the etcetra is air
rocketjohn: Die Hardman was the best character.
Tom_Bruise: little plastic armymen and little plastic ghosts
ashiok_nightmare_moose: @PendelSteven ... how do you watch movies then?
rocketjohn: In those movies.
the_canuck_mystic: etc == product placement
Manae: The apocalypse may have happened, but companies survive
Tom_Bruise: you know, basic amenities
Electrodyne: Hi I'm Steve Timecopman
Alahmnat: @FoxBoxGamers we already had it, but we *had* been wearing it before now
Theycallmejokke: Four cans of Monster energy, the perfect balanced breakfast
EvilBadman: Hello, I am Evil...Badman. Wait, shit
TXC2: is the beach a liminal space?
pharniel: A Kojima game, unneccissiarly convoluted and confusing? What? I never
FoxBoxGamers: oh right
Lithobraker: A Kojima game? Unnecessarily confusing? I never!
RocknGrohlNerd: @rvleshrac like a half a day, thank you for asking benginDab
RvLeshrac: Everything will be explained in time, I wouldn't try to reason it out too much at this point.
PendelSteven: @ashiok_nightmare_moose well, for games they can look like somebody else, so this is a choice of the game
MAPBoardgames: A euphemism for something.
NimrodXIV: stop looking at the camera, Norman
Electrodyne: This is my partner, Ellen AboveTheLawingtin
neisan2112: "Yes"
wench_tacular: sure, sure
Dmc3628: ah yes a Kojima game being convoluted name a more iconic duo
Lithobraker: @pharniel jynx!
aWabbajack: pretty much
Aenir798: That's a beach, not the Beach.
TehAmelie: wait, is it four or five Monster cans? does it change from shot to shot? is this symbolism or a production goof?
RocknGrohlNerd: lrrBEEEJ lrrBEEEJ lrrBEEEJ
