Sogheim: lrrHEART lrrPAUL
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy!
TehAmelie: sometimes there are one commercial for your area and that's what you get
SnowBuddy18: I missed episode 1, can someone summarize?
OmnipotentTrevor: If anyone has read (or watched, I guess) The Postman, this game's plot is basically just a more complicated adaption of that story. Kojima was clearly inspired by it (probably the movie with Kevin Costner).
Sogheim: I am excited to be here to save America one package at a time
TehAmelie: i remember a time when they showed a 8-or-10 second commercial for an advertising company about 20 times in a row

Theycallmejokke: Lots of walking, Kojima being Kojima, and Dead people goes boom
TXC2: also the rain makes time accelerate
Theycallmejokke: Right!
Sogheim: and there's a man in a black mask named Die Harderman?
OmnipotentTrevor: "The Postman" being a story about a man trying to rebuild America after the apocalypse by delivering mail.

Lord_ZYRK: Winky face PridePog
mikialice: Oh wow no mistaking who that is
BusTed: "Just thinkin' 'bout stuff."
flufff42: The room has this weird fixed camera
BusTed: He *is* winking at us.
plummeting_sloth: Use Toilet (Stranding)
Theycallmejokke: Did he just wink at us
TheThromborax: oh, Hartman
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Thjat was a aquick undress
OmnipotentTrevor: You can apparently get him to punch the camera if you annoy him enough on that bed, I think.
plummeting_sloth: Man, Hartman only calls us in the shower huh
saberpilot: Norman has +1 to speed undressing
AmberLampLight: I know videogames don't have this down yet, but the way his biceps clip through his shirt is weirdly incongruous with the texture quality
TheThromborax: taking a dooker is also a plot point in this game
GDwarf: Fast dresser
mikialice: Such a pro at dressing and undressing
Alahmnat: Extremely Careful Camera Framing
BusTed: WutFace
TXC2: wow we get dressed FAST
KV1NN4: geez i wish i could get dressed that fast
RocknGrohlNerd: why did I read that prompt as Shower(Stranding) avngrKek
Tom_Bruise: So the people at this facility only seem to talk to Sam EXCLUSIVELY when he's in the shower
GDwarf: Turns out he's a quick-change artist
Theycallmejokke: He did, he did wink, neat
Lord_ZYRK: Did one of those say "Beer intake"
TXC2: no sound of the pew
TXC2: *pee
KV1NN4: he did not wash his hands
MAPBoardgames: No peeing minigame? 0/10!
Thandres: not washing hads??? D:
TheThromborax: time to SMASH MONSTER
Lord_ZYRK: Well at least he doesn't shake hands
plummeting_sloth: Now, for a unique achievement, make Sam keep using the bathroom till they pass out
Lord_ZYRK: Mamaaaa, oooOOOooo SingsNote
GDwarf: Sure
TheThromborax: YES
ArcOfTheConclave: zoom in on Sam's crotch. he has a unique animation.
TheAinMAP: Is that symbolically?
plummeting_sloth: We got the blood out of the shower and put in on the rope
Tom_Bruise: They put his blood in a rope? Where did they get it from? Did Sam consent to this?
TheThromborax: if there's a chance for something to be used as a Screaming Un-Subtle Metaphor in this game, it is
Theycallmejokke: Kojima confusing, parish the thought
DoctorAddams: "You back from that delivety early!" "Earth's haunted." "What!?" *loads baby* "Earth's Haunted."
claire_x: ropes made with blood?
Featherweight_: shower blood obvs
plummeting_sloth: Look Paul, in this post-apocalyptic future, words are scarce, so they have to use the same ones for different things

AmberLampLight: To be fair, I wouldn't try to borrow someone else's equipment if it had their blood on/in it
MAPBoardgames: Sunglasses with angry brows included
TheThromborax: These sunglasses are deliberately designed to cover more of your face so that more of your face is covered
TXC2: why bother having that gap between the lens and the frame? :p
OmnipotentTrevor: Not only can you get fancy outfits, they show up in cutscenes if you wear them, and it can really mess with the emotional impact of certain moments

novrdd: :P
Tom_Bruise: @Sogheim would you believe me if I said it's a ghost-sensing baby?
Featherweight_: baby is your ghost radar
TheThromborax: @Sogheim that's a very complicated question
plummeting_sloth: "Tired, huh" *taps on glass to keep baby awake*
PharaohBender27: @Sogheim Baby serves as a sort of monster detector
Sogheim: @Tom_Bruise I would believe that
Lord_ZYRK: Sogheim we'll tell you when you're older
TheOtherTrevor: #sponsored
niccus: this stream brought to you by monster
Theycallmejokke: chug chug chug
NimrodXIV: #ad
Tom_Bruise: It even had the URL clearly legible on the can
TheThromborax: now do another
TheThromborax: and another
TheThromborax: and a third
TehAmelie: i could do that if i was immortal too
TheMerricat: I wonder if they'll update the can designs when Monster does since it's online...
plummeting_sloth: I like to think that of course Monster corporation hasn't survived into the future, so all those cans are antiques
DoctorAddams: Refreshing AND affordable!
Alahmnat: this placement is almost as ludicrous as the placement in Michael Bay's The Island
TheThromborax: you can, and should, drink all of the ones on the table
Featherweight_: Monster energy not in the apocalypse could kill it
MAPBoardgames: Servings per can: 3.
niccus: just walk
futtbuckle: later on you get the opportunity to change the Monster cans with beer
plummeting_sloth: your objective is on the West Coast... better get walkin'
TehAmelie: i think this US is wider than normal
Sogheim: well, that's a pretty current coastline, so global warming didn't happen in this hellscape
futtbuckle: and if you get drunk on beer and mess up they change it back to Monster
NimrodXIV: it definitely looked wider
PsychoI3oy: heheh, i just remembered what style of beer it is
Caldurin: Make us whole again, isaac
DoctorAddams: This Sunset Overdrive is grittier than expected
PharaohBender27: @PsychoI3oy Oh dear, it's going to be PBR or something, isn't it
NeoSilverThorn: "Make us whole" is a phrase that Dead Space has left me very twitchy about.
serialtram: ooh, floaty USB sticks
withr: weird physics
PsychoI3oy: pharaohbender27, no, no... it's Kojima Subtle
NimrodXIV: Zero G USB
futtbuckle: @PharaohBender27 it's kinda amazing
TehAmelie: it's a universal force serial bus
plummeting_sloth: Aw come on, Sam. I think you could have spent another hour resisting the Call
TXC2: what happened to our "dreamcatcher" ?
TheThromborax: the handcuff is both a pip-boy and an unsubtle metaphor
Lord_ZYRK: TehAmelie in the future, the first truly sentient AI will be given the task of designing taffy pulling machines. It has. . . implications.
MAPBoardgames: If you make the USB keys full of magic, you don't have to program physics for them.
serialtram: the handcuff is symbolism
PharaohBender27: @PsychoI3oy so one of those 1970s generic beers that have "BEER" printed on in large block letters? Kappa
Theycallmejokke: That is not a good look Sam
Sogheim: waiting on the subtle metaphors
Featherweight_: your job is to get the wifi working

TheThromborax: Humanity discovers the afterlife and uses it to make the internet better
TehAmelie: oh, to be able to freely generate grammas
Tom_Bruise: they seem to have lost the technology to remove that mask from his face so I guess?
saucemaster5000: no, we just lost all fluid except perfectly preserved monster energy
Theycallmejokke: Dinosaurs? We repair the internet, and we get to have dinosaurs, that is what I choose to hear
plummeting_sloth: we'll need middle men, if you will
TXC2: I mean we didn't "lose" any technology when Rome fell, we just couldn't afford to make it any more
BusTed: does the baby need to eat?
serialtram: time to plug into the baby again
TheMerricat: OMG Do you all not know the meaning of PRIVATE ROOM?

serialtram: i think he means the ghosts
MAPBoardgames: Damn that Mallory! Always getting the middle of my communications.
Scarbble: much less private than advertised
Aenir798: The invisible ghost things
Theycallmejokke: His glitter party blood
Lord_ZYRK: BusTed you just hook up a can of Monster to that side port
PMAvers: If I were going to guess, there seems to be some bone white sticking out from under that mask, so... maybe he got a face-full of the time rain and it melted his face off?
Caldurin: Activating Baby
Tom_Bruise: The room can't have been that private, no way safety guidelines would allow dressing and undressing from HazMat suits in private quarters
MAPBoardgames: The baby is lucky. It gets a womb with a view.
TXC2: MAPBoardgames boooooo Kappa
Mr_Horrible: some kind of Dads Mikkelson?
TehAmelie: in NG+ you get to play as the BB

TehAmelie: (i made that up)
Sogheim: if a preborn baby could have PTSD, yeah
MAPBoardgames: This baby has seen some stuff.
Scarbble: backup shoes
MAPBoardgames: In case you get a flat?
PMAvers: Backups in case they get stuck in something?
plummeting_sloth: shoes so stinky they asked you to take them with you
OmnipotentTrevor: In case yours wear out.
Aenir798: What if you step in something?
Tom_Bruise: To be fair, this baby seems to know everything there is to know about the Hell that's encroaching on the earth, so yea, that baby being traumatized makes sense
PsychoI3oy: the boots were made for walking... but not very far
NeoSilverThorn: Second pair of shoes in case the first get soaked on the inside. Prevent infections.
NimrodXIV: you're walking across the country, a spare pair of shoes seems good
OmnipotentTrevor: Not only is there normal wear and tear, but time rain makes things wear out quicker
TheMerricat: We JUST talked about this Die, in my PRIVATE room you decided to enter without asking.
Lord_ZYRK: Gotta keep your feet dry
GDwarf: I mean, he's wearing a mask, he could be anyone if he didn't introduce himself!
ArcOfTheConclave: the twist at the end of the relationship between BB and Sad Dad is cool.
PharaohBender27: Maybe everyone assumes Sam has a goldfish memory or something
Featherweight_: did they mention why he doesn't get a new motor bike? there just making him walk now?
Featherweight_: was that thw only bike?

Lord_ZYRK: If the drug's so smart, why doesn't it deliver itself? DansGame
MAPBoardgames: All these rope metaphors make me think they are just Stringing Sam along.
TheMerricat: Sam! You've been doing this job without our help for years, but I'm going to treat you like an idiot because the game needs a tutorial...
OmnipotentTrevor: Yeah, they figure if you're already going there they might as well load you up
MAPBoardgames: What has Sam gotten himself Tied up in?
Ivalenz_: Make Amazon deliveries and repair their Wi-Fi.

plummeting_sloth: Oooh, a rope AND a ladder? How GENEROUs
PharaohBender27: A rope *and* a ladder! Oh boy!
Theycallmejokke: That is a ladder for each of our limbs, combined we will become ladderman! With all the powers of a man with four ladders
Territan: And thus, Ladderman was born.
Tom_Bruise: a rope, a ladder, some crampons. That's everything we can offer. What? A Toboggan?
OmnipotentTrevor: Just remember that whatever they/you put out there will eventually rust into nothing thanks to timefall.
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun you have a real center of gravity in this game. How you load your back impacts how you move
Territan: Ladderman with the power of height and bridging long gaps!
plummeting_sloth: "Sam, this mission is of vital importance to the survival of the country. So, we are equiping you with a walking stick that's only a little bit broken"
OmnipotentTrevor: There is a menu somewhere where you can see what your current center of balance is
TheThromborax: yes
JadedCynic: well, higher technology ultimately becomes LESS flexible - wheeled vehicles need roughly level terrain to travel at any appreciably improved speed, e.g.
OmnipotentTrevor: Oh yeah, there
TheMerricat: So what is the "Attach to suit" anchor point?
TheThromborax: you can put stuff on your shoulders
JAGxTERRA: The auto camera adjust on Paul is amazing.
PharaohBender27: Feel like that ladder is messing with our center of gravity
MAPBoardgames: If rain causes things to degrade, why aren't more people living where it doesn't rain as often?
serialtram: you have 4 ladders?
TheExactSame: if given the choice between a ladder and a ladder former, leave the former and take the latter
TheExactSame: that joke works better spoken
Orgmastron: Boo @theexactsame
DoctorAddams: It's some JRPG technology. Beautiful metropolis powered by magical spheres and arcane machinery? Check. Toothbrushes...? No.
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames Also, does all water accelerate aging? Are we no longer able to drink water?
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames where does it not rain? Can you GET there? Knowing that planes, cars, trains, etc are all breaking down
TheExactSame: @Orgmastron disagree!
TXC2: chile, it doesn;t rain in chile
OmnipotentTrevor: PharaohBender27: The timefall only imparts time when it falls. After the raindrops hit the ground they become normal water
plummeting_sloth: ah, you've activated "jousting lance mode"
Tom_Bruise: oh god, now to put the ladder back..
plummeting_sloth: for ladder jousting
MAPBoardgames: @JadedCynic I have an advantage of already living where it doesn't often rain. The rest of you are on your own. lrrSPOT
saberpilot: ladderman!
PharaohBender27: @OmnipotentTrevor How convenitent :p
NightValien28: onward!!
PharaohBender27: *convenient
JadedCynic: @TXC2 so, you wanna transport all these americans from the Continental 48, down through the tropical jungle of Central America and down to the west slopes of the Andes?
Tom_Bruise: "Die-Hardman? Yea, it's Sam. Listen, I need your help; I've take the ladder out. How do I put it back?"
TXC2: how has ladder jousting not been a thing that's shown up on vine/tiktok ? :p
OmnipotentTrevor: PharaohBender27: It makes me think of kinetic energy being imparted
JadedCynic: Devs making assumptions? whoa
TXC2: JadedCynic Gods no, Chile doesn't deserve that :p

MAPBoardgames: I wonder if you ever find any Fragile Express cargo?
saucemaster5000: Man Amazon is way more hands on and understanding to their employees in the future
Aenir798: Grab them on a return trip maybe
Mistborn83: alot of times you will pick things up going to one location and then just continue to carr them till you get back. Most likely those particular packages wont be there when you get back

TheThromborax: if you "dismantle" it, you don't get it back
Theycallmejokke: Can we like I own ladder
JadedCynic: All of man's technological advancements < mother nature playing with a more expensive toy
Mistborn83: dismantle destroys
Sly_chocobo: They have DRM Im afraid
Sly_chocobo: 1 Use only
BillTheCat: NFT ladder
BusTed: They're not *retracting* ladders.
plummeting_sloth: they've got glue on both ends, sorry
Alephred: It's all a scam by Big Ladder
PharaohBender27: ^
JAGxTERRA: Wait they're one use ladders? How posh.
Aenir798: They're reusable! Every time you come back here, you can reuse it!
Decaped: that's so other people can use your ladder instead of you just conserving what you take.
10of9: Muti use ladders is probably one of the technologies they want to rediscover!
BillTheCat: yo it's raining
TheThromborax: "it rains over here"
TXC2: Gods these people phone us more often then our cousin in GTA4 :p
PharaohBender27: Shelter!
plummeting_sloth: quick, hid in it!
OmnipotentTrevor: Or just move quickly enough to get out of the rain
JadedCynic: Bridges - they probably make the ladders, so they wanna hoard all the likes to themselves :D
10of9: lrrHERE
Mistborn83: there are some spots on the map that are always raining so you just need to get through them quickly shelters wont really help as the rain never lets up
DoctorAddams: It's like disposable contact lenses... But ladders.
Manae: They make pop-up post boxes but can't have some pop-up rain shelters?
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun you can't wait out this rain, just walk through it. It's confusing, since in the intro it was so dangerous, but at this point it's actually not a big deal
TXC2: time rain = blowout soon fellow stalker?
Scy_Anide: @jadedcynic Oh, so it's like the low-flush toilets and something got stuck.
TheThromborax: You have to level up to get pop up shelters @Manae
Mistborn83: I think you best bet is just to run through it as fast as you can
DeMeched: good luck
TheThromborax: god speed
Mistborn83: BTs
DeMeched: ITS HERE
OmnipotentTrevor: That was the game's indicator that enemies are nearby
PharaohBender27: katesScared
MAPBoardgames: Suddenly, "materials that don't break down over thousands of years" doesn't seem like such a bad thing.
TheThromborax: spoopifer
DeMeched: also, hi chat PrideCute VoHiYo
ArcOfTheConclave: Freaky BTs?
TXC2: hello DeMeched welcome
OmnipotentTrevor: It isn't blinking fast yet, so they're far away
Wicker_Guide: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 44:57.
JadedCynic: @Scy_Anide pretty much - the local Canal Pilot that steers the vessel through the Suez might not have been used to the 'eco-friendly' style of ship and expected the ship's handling to be stronger... (in other news, I expect the poor guy to have fled and hid somewhere safer for him....like the West Bank, or IN the current Icelandic volcano ;) )
TheThromborax: that's where the wi-fi cuts out
DeMeched: The line is your "as the crow flies" line to your destination
OmnipotentTrevor: The line is basically the wifi range
plummeting_sloth: way, are we off of the network? cool, let's stay here. Maybe people will stop calling us
TheMerricat: Sam! I just wanted to let you know that you are too far out and I can't call you any more!
OmnipotentTrevor: It'll matter more later
Sogheim: ok what was that?! was that a body?!
Alephred: Has Paul learned what Bridges does with the your toilet?
MAPBoardgames: Disconnected? does that mean the suits back at the office won't be calling us every 30 sec? Can we just... Not extend the network... just saying.
CanPlayGames: Why do they look like spooky space men?
JadedCynic: @Sogheim BT - smoky residual scan of it
plummeting_sloth: "Keep it down Sam" he said audibly
JAGxTERRA: Sam is talking to himself. Not a good sign
saberpilot: I wonder if those were humans at one point or if they're the monster things
Alephred: Those are ghostly umbilical cords.
Sogheim: no, sir, I don't like it
DeMeched: I'm sure its fiiiiiiine
NightValien28: the dead space school of horror
niccus: it's like the scanners in Alien; sometimes it's the aesthetic of horrible death that counts
DoctorAddams: So why can behbeh see the spooks...?
saberpilot: lrrFINE
JadedCynic: it's basically gradual erosion
Rewind_G: WOOo new episode of walking sim
accountmadeforants: The ghostly figures make me think of OG Nier.
Wicker_Guide: spooky ghost things are indeed former humans
BillTheCat: you only have enough waterproof material for a jacket for you
Alephred: What's the spoiler policy ehre?
OmnipotentTrevor: You can check the container integrity in the menu. But the stuff inside is fine as long as the container has any integrity left
Creideiki_SE: You overestimate Bridges' tarp budget.
GDwarf: This is some solid "as you know" exposition
MAPBoardgames: Insurance doesn't cover acts of God
TXC2: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
OmnipotentTrevor: Unless you, like, take a huge fall
saberpilot: no spoilers, I believe LRRbot said
JadedCynic: maybe we shouldn't have been USING chiral particles IN OUR TECH???
saucemaster5000: Thanks exposition man
Tom_Bruise: Can the Death Stranding and its BTs follow us into space?
Alephred: k
Sogheim: I am glad our boss is complaining to us over the phone while we're hiding
Tom_Bruise: if not, I might have a solution
Alahmnat: at least he didn't say "as you know"...
Alephred: You're out of 'network' rance, not radio.
10of9: I like your funny words exposition man...
saucemaster5000: You are still in exposition range
plummeting_sloth: Boy do people like telling Sam things that any person living in this world should already reasonably know
Rewind_G: do you have a face tracker on your webcam?
OmnipotentTrevor: The network range mostly effects stuff you can't build yet.
DeMeched: I think radio is okay, there are just certain mechanics that don't work outside of Chiral Network range I.E. Crafting
Rewind_G: it seems to float almost
JadedCynic: wifi, not radio, sadly - Yeah, I wonder why Sam doesn't just leave and slope out for somewhere and wave bye-bye to Bridges et al.
saberpilot: to be fair, I'm not entirely sure what a normal person would know at this point
Alephred: non-spoler Fun Fact: Odradek is a reference to Franz Kafka.
saberpilot: we haven't seen a single kid outside of little baby
Alephred: *non-spoiler
PharaohBender27: lrrFINE
PharaohBender27: Gee, if only we had a ladder . . .

Featherweight_: plummeting_sloth needless exposition is like talking about the weather in the post apocalypse
TheMerricat: So chat, does this game ever explain why people go around with perfectly good names but insist on using nicks like "Deadman" and "Die Hardmann"?
Alephred: Ladder are cheap, but you can only carry so many on your back.
justwhatever_idk: @TheMerricat yes
TheThromborax: Paul, consider re-loading your backpack
JadedCynic: @Lupus2253 maybe, but it almost seems like Sam is less-gregarious of a person, and enjoys his 'alone time'? Not everyone gets lonely?
TheThromborax: that heavy thing on top is going to topple you
saucemaster5000: @TheMerricat I mean, wouldn't you?
OmnipotentTrevor: TheMerricat: Because Kojima. This is pretty standard coming from MGS
ArcOfTheConclave: optimze your load
Alephred: Yes, the arrangement of your stuff affects your balance.
OmnipotentTrevor: i.e. Hotcoldman
Alephred: Heavy stuff can go on the bottom.
TheExactSame: woo saved a ladder
Featherweight_: looked afew for a second and now you have a deasil engine on your back
TehAmelie: only a waist deep river, ha
TheThromborax: if something looks big and heavy, it is big and heavy
Wicker_Guide: there is a benefit to holding things in your hands
PsychoI3oy: featherweight_, diesel fuel can, actually
Mistborn83: you cant run as fast
DoctorAddams: Disregard cargo, aquire proton pack.
saberpilot: too bad you don't have the bike you started with :(
Sogheim: thats not Paul whistling...?
PharaohBender27: Are we whistling, or is there someone else?
TheMerricat: Did BB just give us a like?
TehAmelie: i'm hoping you spend the whole 100+ hour game trying to collect enough money to replace your bike
X_modem: it slows you slightly and might take a little more stamina I belive.
JAGxTERRA: is that...is that a unborn baby on your chest?
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat Die Hardmann survived and became a repatriate - it's what gave him fame and got him his position in The Adminstration - why wouldn't he emphasize it; I mean neither you nor I are using our perfectly good given names in this chat... ;)
OmnipotentTrevor: Your whistling calmed him down
Alephred: You can stabilize with both hands, that's good. In specific situations, you may also want them for carrying even more cargo, in which case you will not be able to use them for balance.
RAICx subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 75 months!
RAICx: How’s it going Paul? Have you stranded yet?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, RAICx! (Today's storm count: 16)
TheThromborax: @JAGxTERRA yes and no
TXC2: JAGxTERRA pretty much
Lupus2253: @JadedCynic I completely agree, Sam does not seem like the person, who wants to socialize, that much, but then again, what he wants has been pretty much ignored the whole time. Considering how the other characters treat his phobia, for example.
Opera707: yo its paul!
Orgmastron: @jagxterra Don't worry about it
JAGxTERRA: We just act like thats normal? ok
TheMerricat: @JadedCynic Fair, but I also wouldn't be telling my boss "Please call me TheMerricat from now on...." :P
TheThromborax: don't drink the yellow water
Tom_Bruise: It's a ghostsensing baby, you shouldn't go out and about without one
Alahmnat: "normal" has a very different definition in this game
andysoo89: I’m getting exhausted just watching this poor man
TehAmelie: i mean, you CAN come back from the dead, but is a Monster really worth that nightmare?
PharaohBender27: @JAGxTERRA There's a *lot* in this game we're just supposed to consider "normal" :p
plummeting_sloth: man, can we just float the fuel downriver and get it later?
JadedCynic: @Lupus2253 "So, if I go deliver this package for you, will you leave me alone? SOLD!" :D
saucemaster5000: I really do appreciate how much "game" they manage to fit into just walking around
JadedCynic: grip-strength
TheExactSame: quads
JAGxTERRA: Sam has a gym membership
Alephred: Kirby can eat endlessly!
TheThromborax: Sam is a donkey, but not a Muel
TheThromborax: Mule
JadedCynic: Sam is a.....porter
saberpilot: are there any gyms left? XD
Sogheim: and Paul sings!
Alahmnat: it' a metaphor!
TXC2: like how the 10 year olds in pokemon can walk across a nation in a day :p
Tom_Bruise: Worked his core like noone else
TheMerricat: Meh, Sam is no Jenny LeClue but he definitely has some upper body strength.
plummeting_sloth: the linking factor to every modern video game protagonist is insane upper body strength
TehAmelie: why would he need to go to a gym with this workday?
gangstergoose47: phrasing
accountmadeforants: Link is just full up on courage.
plummeting_sloth: I'm glad we were able to bring vital medicine to this completely uninhaited waystation
andysoo89: Is it at all significant that the main character has the same name as the company he works for?
saberpilot: have they mentioned at all what the smart drugs do?
W_Livi subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 87 months!
W_Livi: ooh, death stranding
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, W_Livi! (Today's storm count: 17)
JadedCynic: @saucemaster5000 I mean, ultimately it's a hiking simulator, but the 'it's just a walking sim' isn't wrong, and like you say, SOMEHOW they make it INTERESTING lrrAWESOME
niccus: sure are brain drugs
Alephred: The things he carries are generally incidental.
PharaohBender27: So, we're just a drug mule?
Alephred: You'll only see them as crates.
Mushbie: ahh what America really needs is more Opioids....
TXC2: so smart drugs = antidepressants ?
JadedCynic: we are.... "The Postman" (people get their prescriptions in the mail)
Creideiki_SE: It did say it was oxytocin when you picked it up.
electra310: Oxytocin is the drug that makes you love babies, right? We've obviously got plenty of that.
OmnipotentTrevor: The container takes damage first
W_Livi: the container tanked the rain damage
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun Your containers take the damage first, once the container is breached....
Tom_Bruise: Can boxes get waterlogged?
Mistborn83: the container takes damage. Once the container takes 100% damage the cargo gets damaged
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun the containers are tough Roadie style things
Sogheim: awesome! we got Black Mirror Like's for our delivery
TehAmelie: those hard steel cases should be practically indestructible
OmnipotentTrevor: Once the container is damaged enough, then the cargo inside starts breaking
Aenir798: I think it said they'd take more damage from falling, but it didn't sound like the rain itself does damage
Wicker_Guide: message said the rain makes cargo more fragile
JadedCynic: you'll see spots of rust and the like on them...
Alephred: The containers themselves can tank some damage before the contents are damaged.
plummeting_sloth: you get a "soggy box" penalty
Mistborn83: there is a menu where you loaded the stuff that will give you %s
JadedCynic: I AM the second team
saberpilot: they're all dead. :(
JadedCynic: speaking of that - here
plummeting_sloth: THREE YEARS? you're a kilometer away!
serialtram: ah, the thing you need to reboot the router isn't here
Sogheim: three years?! but that was yesterday!
JadedCynic: sometimes it just takes one guy
Sly_chocobo: Well they are standard NPC's
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun you just walked from Washington DC to Cleveland
JAGxTERRA: "And they sent this fool?"
TehAmelie: miscellaneous is our strongest suit. they should call us Sam Misc
justwhatever_idk: there's monsters outside Paul
plummeting_sloth: you could use a big slingshot and send it over!
Sly_chocobo: If its not within 3-4 steps they need the HERO OF LEGEND to deliver their mail aor.. whatever
W_Livi: It's dangerous outside, man. All those BTs...!
saberpilot: this looks trippy
OmnipotentTrevor: On this map you can walk from one coast to the other in a couple hours, It hink.
Tom_Bruise: You gave this station the power of that baby
Alephred: You're going from place to place connecting them to the network (and basically making their 3D printers work)
saucemaster5000: they would but It's a bit cloudy outside
NightValien28: bb liked it
plummeting_sloth: what?!
NightValien28: wat
Tom_Bruise: You got a strand! Get it?!
TXC2: keep in mind that our first job was basically down the street
surtur15: the map looks huge
plummeting_sloth: Is... is Sam Bridges a giant?
JadedCynic: yes, Paul, we have to reconnect America
PharaohBender27: @TheThromborax Holy shit you weren't kidding
Lord_ZYRK: Sam takes looong strides
Aenir798: There's NO WAY we walked that far
TheThromborax: you just walked from Washington DC to Columbus, OH
Decaped: yeah, distances are a bit foreshortened
saberpilot: columbus is used to being off the grid :(
MAPBoardgames: It always bothers me when people remove necklaces by yanking on them so the cord breaks.
NightValien28: so the distances aren't 1:1 that makes sense
Featherweight_: its' all that time-rain
CordialContriver: USA looks a lot smaller than we learned in school.
TheThromborax: @PharaohBender27 yeah, "distance" in this game is wrong
BlueMechanic: I guess the Deah's Stranding made the entire continent smaller
Sogheim: ok this is a spoopy Walking Sim. I get it.
PharaohBender27: Also, didn't realize the entire eastern US was "mossy mountain" :p
Decaped: USA has a lot more holes than before too
OmnipotentTrevor: I love how you can see the quality of the hologram improve
TheThromborax: well, it's like they say. It's a small world, after all.
justwhatever_idk: @MAPBoardgames this one at least has like a magnet on the back of it
plummeting_sloth: when the Death Stranding struck, it brought a shrink ray
saberpilot: sure, now that you're connected you're nice
Mistborn83: there are some good cameos in this game
W_Livi: I wonder if the Stranding is somehow responsible for this geographic compression effect
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth again, Kojima stole UbiSoft's proprietary 'shrink-map' technology where you can see Cuba from Jamaica ;)
DoctorAddams: America is a lot smaller than I thought
Shemerson: I always felt that the NPCs in this game talk just a little too much, but it kind of makes sense, cabin fever and all
Aenir798: They should've tried communicating via smoke signal.
SnowBuddy18: oh my God, I thought Capital Not City was a joke
TheThromborax: America is compressed to the density of Japan, which is not surprising when you think about it
JAGxTERRA: These place names are gonna start confusing me.
plummeting_sloth: start with teh Disco center! I'm sold!
electra310: Are they even paying us?
Alahmnat: we get paid in exposure
TheThromborax: that's so true
Alephred: I recommend you optimise your load, you're going to tip over.
plummeting_sloth: exposure to Timefall
Featherweight_: FIVE ladders
JadedCynic: @electra310 yep, in likes (no, I'm not kidding)
Tom_Bruise: "Sam! One of our porters lost a shipment of Funkos. We need you to retrieve the package en deliver the payload"
MAPBoardgames: @electra310 We are being paid in exposure to time fall.
lirazel64: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:00:36.
saucemaster5000: I mean if your roomy is doing the grocery shopping, why not ask for a candybar?
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun if you take lost cargo to a post box you get partial credit
DoctorAddams: Dude needs a pony in a rain coat. It would make all this way easier.
Alephred: All the weird themes and obtuse control elements really come together to make a fantastic experience later, I was genuinely impressed.
TheThromborax: then the multiplayer element kicks in and another player can get the package
OmnipotentTrevor: You can "deliver" it instantly for less likes than if you took it all the way there
W_Livi: "you're to be paid in exposure" "people DIE of exposure!" "Yeah, but you're a repatriate"
JadedCynic: we can relay our found packages to other players to finish delivery and share the credit (this is part of the Souls-esque multiplayer)
JadedCynic: you could also take a light load and plan on checking post boxes out there to see if there's packages other people have found that we can bring the rest of the way
OmnipotentTrevor: I think you can also do that from waystations like this one too. Like you can put it in the locker here for someone else to deliver the rest of the way.
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun try the auto now
saberpilot: this is backpacking the game, isn't it?
TehAmelie: have we talked about what an odd term "repatriate" is for coming back to your body after death? unless you're a sovereign citizen
JadedCynic: @saberpilot yep. and somewhow it's still INTERESTING
NimrodXIV: my back hurts looking at this
justwhatever_idk: the Ordradek is in the way on the other side of the pack, presumably
Aenir798: Your shoulder loud noise maker is over on the lef
JAGxTERRA: Hip location?
electra310: Death is the undiscovered country, so if you leave it, you repatriate?
Alephred: There's a single button to optimise your load.
plummeting_sloth: yeah, it's like "Ugh, here let me fix that, idiot"
W_Livi: auto is quite helpful, though there can be times where you may wanna manage things manually
TheThromborax: Auto isn't "the best" but it shows you what's possible
justwhatever_idk: @TehAmelie are you not from your own body?
TehAmelie: yeah but it's not my nation
TheThromborax: once you get a sense for the system you can improve
justwhatever_idk: Yeah but it's your body though lol
TXC2: when you think about it, you are from your mother's body
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun so I don't know if this counts as a spoiler or not but given you are playing the game 'late' you may find that you won't need that much equipment since you can just piggy back on the equipment other players have placed.
Alephred: Your hands can be used for gripping cargo like suitcases, or stabilising your pack. Similarly, your shoulder slots can be used for armor, or cargo space.
TehAmelie: i'm incorporeal in my body, not patriotic
JAGxTERRA: Hey Sam get a PCC. You should have a PCC. Don't forget your PCC.
TXC2: TheMerricat Paul may or may not be in offline mode
Featherweight_: this game feels like an indie game concept that got way bigger budget then it really needed
JadedCynic: I mean, with all the BT explosions, and the Timefall erosion going on, the sheer geography of the world has changed - I haven't seen any trees....
TheThromborax: there are no trees. there are no animals bigger than birds
justwhatever_idk: yeah you can upgrade later
TheThromborax: yes, you can upgrade the ever-loving shit out of Sam
TehAmelie: i figured all the trees get automatically harvested for cremations
serialtram: oh wow, that's a lot of package
Alahmnat: "no, no, it's fine, I've got it"
Alephred: Yes, there are things you can do to improve your carry weight.
plummeting_sloth: He's more cargo than man, now
TheThromborax: the world now is what the world was like a billion years ago
Tom_Bruise: backpack? what kinda backpack are you wearing on your hips??
TXC2: I bet our lower back loves this Kappa
electra310: Still nicer than carrying the corpse
Featherweight_: I've warn cosplay that've felt like that
TheThromborax: dollies come later and you can surf on them
PrimsAlg: can you not turn in the lost cargo there?
ArcOfTheConclave: do you want the answer paul?
PharaohBender27: So, I looked it up, and the reason there's no trees is because even though this game takes place in the U.S., Kojima totally based this landscape on Iceland
TXC2: a dolly or maybe that BIKE that we had :p
OmnipotentTrevor: You can unlock a dolly later. You can even ride it like a skateboard.
plummeting_sloth: well, the problem with dollys in this world is that the distances are all wrong, so technically dollys would need to be several miles long
SurfDownstage: They spent all the dolly R&D time on those futuristic backpacks
TheThromborax: @PharaohBender27 oh that makes so much sense
Milocw: Dollies and dirt ground do not mix
JadedCynic: @Featherweight_ it's like a neat little indie concept of 'Backpacking simulator' and then Kojima used that as a vehicle for his story...
10of9: Why do easy way when hard way do trick?
MaxLSilver subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 32 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, MaxLSilver! (Today's storm count: 18)
TheMerricat: I wonder how realistic this cargo system really is. It's too bad Mythbusters isn't a thing any more, I'd love to have Jamie or Adam suit up like Reedus is now and show us how far they could actually make it....
Alephred: Well, there's the walking part, but then there will be Plot with a capital P.
justwhatever_idk: you gotta press n hold and drag it to your icon
JadedCynic: Dolly + loose soil + rough surfaces == stuck dolly
Alephred: So much P.
Sogheim: oh god they're handcuff-links
TheThromborax: @TheMerricat they rebooted mythbusters. It wasn't bad. Not sure if still around or not
TXC2: the SAS once scaled a cliff with 200 pounds of gear each, so this is semi plausible
Mushbie: Given that it is Kojima there is likely an in universe explanation for the lack of them Paul
W_Livi: Who destroyed disc-based media? Digital distribution
W_Livi: :p
Alephred: [Destroyed] means it was out in the rain too long. Can only be salvaged for materials.
plummeting_sloth: "Weapons restrictions lifted" "Weapons, you say?"
Alephred: (and not delivered)
JadedCynic: So Steam? Google? Amazon?
EldarLuin: There's a face I haven't seen in a Let's Play for a while. Hey Paul!
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat My guess: About 50 feet, then you flop over from the poor weight distribution and flail like a turtle on its back
TXC2: hello EldarLuin welcome
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth yeah, we still have to turn this into Kojima's Far Creed ;)
Featherweight_: JadedCynic it has that very indiegame style "one neat machinic " core
OldManJohnsonMB: Still can't tell from watching this whether the game is brilliant or dumb. It is kojima, so I suppose 'both' is a reasonable answer
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun you keep asking if you can just hold down the triggers all the time. You can, but I'll tell you that the satisfaction you will get, once you get the hang of it, of feathering the triggers just right when you know Sam is about to trip is so good
PharaohBender27: HahaSweat
EldarLuin: thanks @TXC2
JadedCynic: run, shmun - we're HIKING, you walk steadily to the destination
nullvoid8: @oldmanjohnsonmb having completed the game, both is definitely the answer
Mushbie: @OldManJohnsonMB *Road to Eldorado both gif*
Alephred: @OldManJohnsonMB I would say it starts as one, and mostly achieves the other.
JadedCynic: @Featherweight_ yeah, very much so, and it's nice in that

LRRbot: Never touch the mystery box.
EldarLuin: "It's just a little deep. It's still good. It's still good."
Alephred: Paul, you can scan the water to get a visual of its depth.
plummeting_sloth: "Try Drowning"
TXC2: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: another box, and in that box is another box which I mailed to myself. And when it arrives, I'll SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER!
accountmadeforants: Which box is the mystery box?
TheThromborax: have you tried giving up
Tom_Bruise: Depending on what river, that may not be an option. Thanks, game!
PharaohBender27: I mean, we are weighted down . . . :p
plummeting_sloth: the PCC is down with me
OmnipotentTrevor: Can you get a better ringtone?
TheThromborax: you have the ladder
serialtram: why does this place need a postbox?! there's nobody here
PharaohBender27: Wait, we're building Portland Community College? Kappa
OldManJohnsonMB: Ah, a slight bluff in the middle of nowhere, a perfect place for a mail box
JadedCynic: @OldManJohnsonMB ultimately it's a weird and fascinating Kojima story wrapped around a simple-yet-elegant "Backpacking Simulator" underlying game...which is more interesting than you'd expect...
EldarLuin: "I claim this land for Spain!"
NotCainNorAbel: additional pylons
plummeting_sloth: Sooo... we can do that, but we can't... ahh never mind
Alahmnat: wow 3d printing has certainly gotten better...
electra310: Yes, and it will almost certainly be you
MAPBoardgames: Insert clip of Monty Python's postbox dedication.
OldManJohnsonMB: @JadedCynic you had me at 'backpack' simulator
Tom_Bruise: So, they've developed the technology to turn light into matter, but they can't make a toboggan for boxes?
nullvoid8: yes, other Sam's
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat chiral particles, son ;)
erica2102: Oh, no... Is he building roads?? LUL
Alephred: It's not light, it's 'compressed' matter.
sivakrytos: because it is a video game, seems likely that YOU will be emptying this postbox
OmnipotentTrevor: Yep. Thanks to chiral technology, you can use the same trait that causes rain to speed things up to speed up other things
PharaohBender27: I feel like we're going to come to really hate that ringtone eventually to the point we want to throw something
EldarLuin: This is why you can't have nice things.
Decaped: Paul here expressing true american spirit
OmnipotentTrevor: You can deliver that heavy fuel, if you're worried about taking it all the way
Robot_Bones: No Deliver. Only Take.
erica2102: This game was so good.
Lord_ZYRK: Was that Rock-a-bye Baby?
plummeting_sloth: "You can rest easy knowing you did your part... poorly"
JadedCynic: @OmnipotentTrevor yeah, and there's no reason to think our exploitation of this stuff might have catastrophic side effects, even when said catastrophes have happened and fractured civilization, but that's no reason to STOP USING THE TECH :D
OldManJohnsonMB: This seems like a deeply inefficient way to deliver cargo. Not unlike the actual postal service
Alephred: This game has many dumb aspects to it, but I finished it feeling like it was something quite unique and special.
JadedCynic: ^^^^
erica2102: @Alephred Totally agree.
Featherweight_: what's the exchange rate on likes to subscribes?
JadedCynic: it's not without it warts but it DOES have its own little charm too
TheThromborax: yeah this UI is bad
andysoo89: How long till we get to tech horsemanship?
MAPBoardgames: The fact that the currency is "Likes" it makes me think that we really ARE being paid in exposure.
OldManJohnsonMB: In the future, there are no horses
TXC2: Featherweight_ it goes like into shares into subscribes
Saulens181: hello chat!
erica2102: I hated building the roads though... Lol
TXC2: hello Saulens181 welcome
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames O_o
keroan0: The wind rises, I think is what that said
CrazyZonie: I see Boxnard is still delivering the boxes. How does Boxnard like the future boxes?
Saulens181: what did i miss during the first hour which was taken up by my college lecture?
JadedCynic: @andysoo89 the timefall rain probably caused all horses to die of old age before they could give birth to another generation...
TheThromborax: (Does Paul want Run Ads reminders?)
TheMerricat: So can you imagine if this was a game where you could actually meet the other porters and they all had a "I am Sam!" voice command?
TXC2: Saulens181 we walked to ohio, which was just around the corner
OmnipotentTrevor: Considering how well this river flows toward your destination, I'd think a boat would be useful
PharaohBender27: ^
Tom_Bruise: a rubber dingy at least
GapFiller: katesLol outta four channels currently watching on Multitwitch this is the only non Minecraft stream
andysoo89: Even a wooden door
nullvoid8: nope, that river flows the wrong way
GapFiller: so thanks Paul for providing some fashionable asymmetry
CrazyZonie: Boat, truck, maybe trike
MAPBoardgames: Go left?
Alahmnat: @TheMerricat it would be like the "Chris! Roger!" bit from Let's Nope
plummeting_sloth: Ah, no boat technology was lost when we lost cart technology
JadedCynic: Gee, it's almost like we might wanna go back and look at what technologies we developed back in history :D
TXC2: resins = warhammer models?
JadedCynic: resins are the fuel for our 3d printers?
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth So we're officially less developed in transportation technology than ancient civilizations. Good to know :p
Tom_Bruise: Would a hovercraft be too much to ask?
CrazyZonie: Do Resins resonate in your heart?
nullvoid8: resins are crafting material
nullvoid8: but sometimes they are also deliverables
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth you do have a point - a barge or raft would just be a big timefall rain-trap :D
erica2102: @TXC2 What else would you use them for in this world?
LordZarano: Resins? Is this Astroneer now?
TheThromborax: building materials for yourself
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 but we can instantly make post boxes
andysoo89: Oh no, do we need to re-tech the wheel?
JadedCynic: maybe it's only been there recently?
Saulens181: I don't even think that's an online ladder
JadedCynic: YAY!
plummeting_sloth: maybe if we made an instant post box, and then turned it on it's side so it could be rolled...
accountmadeforants: ********* is *********-ing as usual, what a *********
TheMerricat: Then we find out the reason the name is starred out is becaus eit was a bad word....
TehAmelie: maybe it's someone who's been banned. NPC or PC
surtur15: holupaminute
nullvoid8: I didn't tune in to get called out like that paul
JadedCynic: end up circling around the destination without getting any closer :D
Alephred: This game will let you grind endlessly if you choose.
Tom_Bruise: Did.. did he just give a ladder a heads-up?
RebekahWSD: Oh, so this game would be a trap to me, since I get distracted way too easily
TheThromborax: deliver them anywhere
plummeting_sloth: KLANG KLANG KLANG
CrazyZonie: Ho-Aaaa!
TheMerricat: Does Paul realize he's heading back to the waystation?
wench_tacular: yes, a gazzele
TXC2: we need to fix the light bulb, but first we need to fix the shelf, but first we need to fix the draw, but first we need WD40, buy first we need to fix the car
Saulens181: Has Paul fallen over with a lot of cargo yet?
TehAmelie: it's like when you're picking berries, but with higher stakes. you do have severe limits to how many pickups you can realistically carry but they're worth so much more than a bucket of lingonberries
erica2102: See me tumble, like a wheel of cheese!
Decaped: booo, when are we getting the first amazing face plant
nullvoid8: @TheMerricat he picked up lost cargo
Sogheim: Paul "Mighty Gazelle" Sanders
TheAinMAP: So mighty.
NimrodXIV: a mighty clumsy gazelle
NightValien28: losing balance like a drunk gazelle
TXC2: Saulens181 not yet
JadedCynic: @Alephred I could see going back for a replay and just spending all my time back int he 'central knot city' area and completing deliveries and building up the area :D
JadedCynic: make it easier on others who just start out
Scarbble: i bet it's just a crafting material or something
Sogheim: is that the same guy?!
erica2102: Turn it into mini's for the painting minigame.
Steelwolf171: Ah, the majestic call of the mighty gazelle: "Whoop, Whoop, Whoop!"
nullvoid8: Resin is crafting supplies
Sogheim: man, that guy has nothing better to do than greet you
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun stash in your postbox?
TehAmelie: such outrageous miscellaneity
MAPBoardgames: If "Likes" are the currency, what do we spend to buy likes?
fcloud: time
PsychoI3oy: you can store materials
Tom_Bruise: our time and energy carrying boxes
Decaped: @JadedCynic this game has a good system where it doesn't spawn in things that you yourself don't already have access to, for that reason. keeps the beginning at a good pace for new people
OmnipotentTrevor: Oh yeah, and you unlock new conversations with the people as you get more stars by making deliveries to them.
erica2102: You deposit them at Distribution centres, main cities. Anywhere you want to do the majority of your crafting.
Saulens181: I think that's what the Share Locker is for
JadedCynic: @Sogheim hey, when you're in lockdown - don't YOU perk up when the delivery person stops by outside? Even for something small? ;)
CrazyZonie: Paul, don't Metal around with those Resins. Just stash it and use it later when you need it.
TheThromborax: just take it to the destination of your other packages
nullvoid8: I think you unlock the ability to recycle/deposit at waystations. It's defininty available at depos
Sly_chocobo: Facilities are like 'Cities'
Alephred: If Bridges was delivering RPG sourcebooks, this would be me.
Sly_chocobo: And there isnt like a shared storagebox
CrazyZonie: @Alephred Nothing heavier than a box full of RPG sourcebooks.
Sly_chocobo: It's basically to encourage you to use em where you find em rather than horde everything
JadedCynic: @Sly_chocobo 'towns' 'habitats' 'vaults' 'enclaves' 'communes' 'outposts' 'remnants of humanity' ;)
MAPBoardgames: You need a Resident Evil chest.
nullvoid8: I'm pretty sure books are a thing you can deliver
Tom_Bruise: maybe if we connect up to Raccoon Knot City, we might learn the tech behind quantum storage boxes
TheMerricat: So according to a quick google facliities that can recycle will have a recycle option on that first menu screen you get when activating the terminal
Sly_chocobo: @JadedCynic That corner of the forest we go to cry
fcloud: but if we had resident evil chests, there would be no game
erica2102: Take them to the main city and deposit them there. You will eventually be able to fabricate things using the materials.
nullvoid8: have the paths been brought up yet?
Alahmnat: I wonder how much time went into deciding how heavily to truncate the distances in this game
erica2102: @nullvoid8 Building the roads, you mean?
TXC2: fjord looking more like
plummeting_sloth: the well known American volcano fields
nullvoid8: @erica2102 no, the dirt paths
Alephred: This could be Boxnard's Day Out.
RvLeshrac: FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Bridges Version)
erica2102: Oh... don't think so.
CrazyZonie: @RvLeshrac I think this is more like the mechwarrior suits of the outer rim
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun worse yet, something to KEEP seeing popping over the horizon, every time you stop to take a rest; steadfastly walking towards you...aka human persistance hunters == Jason Voorhees
Saulens181: that's not a good sign
nullvoid8: good instincts paul
wench_tacular: reasons
Tom_Bruise: 1000ml? of blood? ruh-roh
JadedCynic: @CrazyZonie not even that - it's just a dude under a pack
erica2102: Move!!
JadedCynic: pirates!
Anubis169: meow... manMARTIN
Tom_Bruise: oh boy! Marauders!
CrazyZonie: @JadedCynic Boxnard is more than "just a dude"
TXC2: hello Anubis169
erica2102: Bandits!
wench_tacular: run forrest, run!
nullvoid8: aaand that's what the orange means
electra310: What if we do want to get caught? How well do mauraders pay?
Anubis169: yo!
JadedCynic: and now the hiking sim becomes Kojima's Far Cry
CrazyZonie: Maybe this is the time for a ghost attack?
Anubis169: Oh hey, Paul you're a walking luggage depot :D
erica2102: You don't want a gun...
JadedCynic: wish we had decent cover...
erica2102: Dead people explode, remember!
Tom_Bruise: yea killing things in this place seems... bad
W_Livi: death is Bad News in this world
Lord_ZYRK: They've got harpoons WutFace
Mistborn83: killing people causes them to go ff like a nuke
Aenir798: Corpses are like nukes, don't want guns
Robot_Bones: can we weaponize the baby?
CrazyZonie: @erica2102 Yeah, but we don't have mommie's corpse, either
wench_tacular: yes, of you
TXC2: "here comes the rain again"
Alahmnat: oh good, they're running away. I'm sure it's for no other reason
NotCainNorAbel: you ran away in a very threatening manner
erica2102: True
JadedCynic: oh, we crossed that line, and missed the sign that said "ACHTUNG MINEN"
Alephred: Inverted rainbow, what does it mean?
EldarLuin: Body thetans
Alephred: RIP double rainbow guy
electra310: I don't think the monster was Gorignak...
Tom_Bruise: "Even they know better than messing with BTs, but you though, you should just run by 'em"
TXC2: Alephred it's a sun dog
JadedCynic: @TXC2 ♫falling on my head like a memory, falling on my head like a new emotion♫
Scy_Anide: Even they know better than to do the thing that you do...
TXC2: JadedCynic yesss!
MAPBoardgames: Have you tried U-Bear? I cover you and honey, then call bear. You probably get to destination much faster.
EldarLuin: Reasons
DoctorAddams: What does BT's stand for? Bloody Twits...?
JadedCynic: @TXC2 with a Windoz computer, hold down alt, then type "1 4" on the num pad to get ♫
Anubis169: there's the weight of 'you' as well?
JadedCynic: there's all the ascii to put in - google "windows alt codes" :D
Mr_Horrible: Approaching cargo weight limit -> Approaching cargo; Weight: limit
CrazyZonie: Are the lost cargos ones that other players drop?
JadedCynic: thanks George
Alephred: @DoctorAddams 'Beached Thing', seriously.
PharaohBender27: ♫ Huh. I usually just use the SingsNote emote
TXC2: JadedCynic that put's me in a weird full page mode, I'm on firefox :P
Orgmastron: I believe so @crazyzonie
Alephred: Lost cargo is both from players, and spawned by the game.
TheMerricat: @CrazyZonie don't know how much of it is stuff players drop aand how much of it is 'NPC' dropped.
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 ...well, yeah, on twitch...alt codes work just about everyhwere Windows™ is used ;)
PharaohBender27: In before it turns out the limit is 120 *pounds* Kappa
DoctorAddams: So the ghosts are whales...? Is this Star Trek?
Mistborn83: Dont forget to pee
JadedCynic: @txc2 you might not have had num-lock on - and ended up entering 'alt+insert' or the like
TXC2: JadedCynic ah, good point
Mistborn83: some rain is positional other is time
erica2102: It's timed but can last for agggggeeessss.
Alephred: The game explains the beach as a metaphysical transition zone to death.
MAPBoardgames: The Rain in the Game is Mainly a Pain.
CrazyZonie: @Mistborn83 Urin trouble if you neglect the Pee mechanic?
Alephred: So beached things are things that are nominally dead.
TheThromborax: sometimes rain goes away. I don't think this rain does
TXC2: so the beach is limbo?
Alephred: A reasonably conclusion.
CrazyZonie: So that's where I parked my car.
Alephred: *reasonable
Mistborn83: later on you will get weather app and you can track it
Alephred: The game will go into more specifics.
lirazel64: lrrFINE
Mr_Horrible: wait, dead cars and tough conditions? Is this just post-apocalyptic Road Quest?
JadedCynic: I mean, we don't see THAT much in the way of steep mountains that would alter the flow of high-and low-pressure systems...so it can take a while for a 'system' to move on through
vegetalss4 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 45 months!
vegetalss4: You appear to be a walking collection of boxes.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, vegetalss4! (Today's storm count: 19)
TheThromborax: your boots are constantly degrading and will have to be replaced
Steelwolf171: I keep reading resins as resins. Changes the game feel somewhat
JadedCynic: @Mr_Horrible this is what became of Road Quest 2: trans-Iceland boogaloo ;)
DoctorAddams: Aaaaaah. Purgatory Beach. Not the best extra-planar holiday destination, but not the worst either :p
PharaohBender27: lrrSPOOP
CrazyZonie: @Steelwolf171 Could be worse, Have you read them as raisins?
Mistborn83: spoop time
JadedCynic: @TheThromborax yeah, there's a reason we have spare boots on our belt
TheThromborax: this is such a chill horror game
Mistborn83: I found playing this game even when you get "weapons" that the dealing with BT was very anxiety inducing
fcloud: aw shit
Steelwolf171: *rasins*. Really? My autocorrect doesn't recognize rasins?
Alephred: I recommend you collect the creepy hand-shaped crystals.
TheThromborax: I can't wait for him to get caught the first time
Alephred: Unfortunately, they tend to show up in the circumstances as BTs.
nullvoid8: you can hold your breath for extra sneak
Decaped: we don't have the thing to let you collect the hands yet.
Alephred: AHH.
Alephred: *ahh.
TheThromborax: Yeah, I forgot that wasn't unlocked from the get go, too
serialtram: those containers are looking pretty messed up
RvLeshrac: Who told Paul it was OK to walk through yellow water?
fcloud: i named my odradek "lil flappy"
Alahmnat: feet downstream!
RvLeshrac: It is OK to walk through like 2cm of yellow.
plummeting_sloth: man, we shuld have been doing that the whole time
TXC2: did we lose any containers ?
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac who told him NOT to? is more to the point ;)
OmnipotentTrevor: Just be glad you didn't lose any cargo doing that
DoctorAddams: Row row row your Sam
MAPBoardgames: This game is just a graphically enhanced Oregon Trail?
Saulens181: I think the water damages cargo somewhat?
nullvoid8: oh man you got lucky there. In so many ways
Decaped: first fall not as punishing as expected
TheThromborax: yummy tardigrades
Mistborn83: If you have cargo stacked on top of your pack it all falls off if that happens just a heads up
LurkerSpine: does falling damage cargo?
TheThromborax: it can
TheThromborax: but not always
W_Livi: don'cha just hate it when you run out of blood?
RvLeshrac: LurkerSpine: Almost nothing doesn't damage cargo.
TheThromborax: depends on the fall
Mistborn83: @LurkerSpine yes
plummeting_sloth: Sam has big "My clothes are soggy" walk energy
RvLeshrac: The amount of damage varies dramatically based on a bunch of factors.
TheMerricat: They put that anchor there as trap!! jerks
LurkerSpine: or as an idicator?
LurkerSpine: indicator*
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames Hideo Kojima's 21st Century Oregon Trail, With Ghost-Kaiju And Bandits And Aging-Rain
MAPBoardgames: Um. We can see through the cargo. Is that a bad thing?
TheThromborax: SO CLOSE
Mistborn83: that was close
Alahmnat: that was close...
DoctorAddams: It's like the Spider-Man 2 pizza delivery mini game, but with more nightmares.
JadedCynic: ^^^
Sly_chocobo: I think the babycrying and the flapping thing going *nuts* is a bad sign....
plummeting_sloth: or like an O2 tank
CrazyZonie: So, your supposed to hold your breath, but that baby starts whining? Explain that to me.
PharaohBender27: That or a breaking silencer mask?
TheThromborax: they can't hear the breathing, they just FEEL your breathing
electra310: The baby is whining in your brain
OmnipotentTrevor: They don't care about the baby. They care about you.
TXC2: the BT's care about breathing, not sound
TheThromborax: they don't track sound. they track your nonchalance
Sly_chocobo: So they are like those Vampires that hop?
Mistborn83: good job sneaking Paul
TheThromborax: rut roh raggy
TheOtherTrevor: smell of your breath?
Sly_chocobo: (And suck the breath out of the living)
Lord_ZYRK: They go after the CO2 like mosquitoes
electric_claire: Is this baby still under warranty?
OmnipotentTrevor: I think it's the fact that you're alive
MAPBoardgames: Maybe holding your breath is a superstition thing. Like hiding your thumb near a graveyard.
Orgmastron: Defective baby!
fcloud: uh oh problem with babby
plummeting_sloth: Shit, baby's broke
OmnipotentTrevor: baby got too stressed
GDwarf: "Nothing to worry about, your baby's just dying"
niccus: just turn it off and back on again
breathlessisthehunt: I was thinkign signs of life not so much sounds?
Alephred: You need to change your baby's oil.
wench_tacular: reboot babby
TheExactSame: you'll have to bring your baby to the dealer
Ivalenz_: Reboot the BB.
nullvoid8: nah, perfectly normal wear and tear
JadedCynic: @CrazyZonie it's not the 'sound' of your breath, it's the airflow - they FEEL not hear or see....if we jumped up and down, it would probably feel the tremors through the ground and home in on us
Mr_Horrible: "it's functions have been temporarily suspended" How is that not worrying?!
TheThromborax: run
DoctorAddams: Behbeh D:
Tom_Bruise: "So remember when I told you to burn it because it's defective? Yea."
OmnipotentTrevor: You can try to calm the baby down, I think
TheThromborax: just run
NightValien28: death comes NBD
MAPBoardgames: Lets take this baby in for maintenance.
JadedCynic: we gotta trust on OUR OWN feeling
Mistborn83: I think you made it trough the BT area
fcloud: take him to the baby repair center. theyre usually in minimalls, right by the tire place
plummeting_sloth: have you tried turning the baby on and off again
Alephred: "This baby can hold so much - oh whoops"
CrazyZonie: "Have you tried rebooting your baby?" Sounds like a great way to get a visit from the state
JadedCynic: we need to soothe and calm our baby, and pet it and rock it
breathlessisthehunt: I think thats just stress lol
Mistborn83: hey that is like me with crohns the body attacking itself. Fun times.
Sogheim: I'm sorry what?
nullvoid8: the language they use for BB is so wierd
TheThromborax: time to learn about cleaning up after your human Tamogachii
Laboons_beard: in water
TheMerricat: I just realized even our water canteen is monster drink....
Mistborn83: when you go in water
Tophical: Just an autoimmune disease, nothing to worry about
Jean_Jacques_EB: when you come into contact with water
plummeting_sloth: hehe... yeah, eventually you stop needing to pee and then the Monster Energy refills
Alephred: The organization has a policy of treating the BB as equipment, not a baby, for reasons.
JadedCynic: @breathlessisthehunt "why use a short word when three long ones say the same thing? :D
nullvoid8: timefall and dips in the river both refill it
OmnipotentTrevor: Yeah, the canteen turns water into monster
electra310: The inside of the canteen is made of Monster solids
Sly_chocobo: Wow, almost religious..
Mr_Horrible: like an Extreme Jesus
Tom_Bruise: No kidding, it's like Jesus but way more radical
Sogheim: Paul, your voice is too soothing, I'm gonna take a nap, thank you for your content
keep_it_lobster: That's what Gamer Jesus does.
breathlessisthehunt: @JadedCynic xD Gotta make it ~fanceh~
DoctorAddams: Feed it some Classic Oatmeal Cakes- wait, wrong game.
CrazyZonie: @Mistborn83 Sorry to hear that the Chrons are attacking. Keep up the good fight.
JadedCynic: You wanna enforce it, Paul? ;)
breathlessisthehunt: @Mistborn83 chrons is the dumbest thing, babe has it, you have my sympathies
TXC2: yeap, it like the devs only made one set of assets or something Kappa
JadedCynic: pre-fab materials with identical blueprints?
TheThromborax: everything outside is completely unique and special. Everything inside, even the buildings themselves, are just re-used assets. This is *subtle*
Mistborn83: thanks, friends. Yeah, it is crappy. But you do get to make fun poop puns
electra310: It's like working for Amazon and Verizon at the same time
TheThromborax: @electra310 don't give the bezos ideas
CrazyZonie: @electra310 So, Bridges was by my house installing new 5G spots? I have some complaints about his work. ;)
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun reconnecting the country feels like an UbiSoft sidegoal/achievement thing - grist for the 100% completionists (like me *bashful*)
Alephred: Expect you don't have to pee in a bottle! Oh wait.
plummeting_sloth: so miscellaneous now
TheThromborax: no, you can piss into the wind
CrazyZonie: @Mistborn83 Poop puns you say? No Shit
plummeting_sloth: Just unclip it my dude!
justwhatever_idk: You can get items by leveling, but it's not a Stat or anything
Decaped: ranking up has some effect, i forget what. I think it just helsp you build more stuff
plummeting_sloth: you have to fix the necklace everytime!
nullvoid8: pretty much yeah
Sly_chocobo: Out of band messaging I guess
Alahmnat: I feel like "misc" is there only because they needed a fifth point to make a star and couldn't think of anything else to include
Jean_Jacques_EB: increasing your rate does improve your stats (more carrying cap, etc)
TheThromborax: they need the Blockchain
SnowBuddy18: you now deliver at a piano rather than a pianissimo
TheThromborax: your necklace is an NFT
ArcOfTheConclave: you are the one they sent
Sly_chocobo: Technically that is the 'correct' way to do it
LurkerSpine: Unless it somehow has to be done by someone with DOOMS?
plummeting_sloth: welp, welcome to Knoxville I guess?
plummeting_sloth: Maybe Lexington?
Alephred: The network was designed to need the Q-Pid deliberately, for security.
miniwak: different stats affect different things. i increased my carrying capacity with one stat but legit can't remember which cause it's been months since i played
PharaohBender27: Hey, we've connected like, D.C., Ohio, and Tennessee!
foopoiuyt: There's no safer way to transmit them other than having a random unhappy person trek around on foot.
CrazyZonie: "Sorry, Bridges, your sister is in another Knot"
Mistborn83: is that Tom Brady slightly less atractive brother
MAPBoardgames: I'm noticing that the network has strands not dissimilar to the evil ghostmans.
OmnipotentTrevor: Now you can learn the explinations for things!
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Maybe Louisville or Nashville?
plummeting_sloth: Company Scrip is a FAVOR Paul
TheThromborax: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:47:24.
Neddy471: Welcome to Corporate Life Paul!
StellarSon: "You're welcome for giving you support for your assigned job"
MAPBoardgames: Break time?
SnowBuddy18: I mean, that's just how corporate works Paul
plummeting_sloth: BRIDGES is a MLM
electra310: Put that broke-ass baby in a box
djdndndjdb: hi
TheMerricat: It is a video game Paul, whenever they don't impede your progress NPC's are doing you a favor.
electra310: Sam is an independent contractor! He sets his own hours and everything >_>
plummeting_sloth: ah, this must be one of those Baby Changing stations i've heard about
JadedCynic: I mean @Alahmnat there's always Yakuza: Like A Dragon - they got the four main items of the ingame battle menu "Skills Etc. Guard Attack" :D
Neddy471: I mean, it is *unrealistic* in the sense that they're asking you to be grateful for being able to do your job... rather than punishing you for not being able to do your job when they deny you the resources to do it.
SnowBuddy18: so your character is in retail?
NimrodXIV: pardon
TheThromborax: oh yeah
Alahmnat: excuse me?
TheThromborax: i forgot about that part
NightValien28: wat
niccus: our moms come prefridged
BlueMechanic: wut
electra310: This is... everything about this is the worst
miniwak: it's crazy but it does make sense further down the line. as is kojima tradition
plummeting_sloth: yep... that's what wombs look like
NightValien28: don't like that
TXC2: wow that is PROFOUNDLY unethical
TheThromborax: Deadman has the empathy of a potato
Coogrr: Yep, also don’t like that
nullvoid8: if this is giving you guys pause, hoo boy, just wait.
JadedCynic: @Neddy471 I mean, it's not like contemporary employers don't do that NOW to us or anything...
TheAinMAP: That sounded like an explanation, but I'm not sure I learned much from it.
Spluuga: gotta update the firmware
StellarSon: the baby just needs a windows update
CrazyZonie sings, "We equip the BB, we unequip the BB, and stick the BB in their stillmother and shake it all about. Without the BB we cannot see the BT's, and that's what it's all about."
gsyhiap: Update? Just keep hitting the 'remind me later' button!
Mr_Horrible: Kojima dreams up some messed up worlds, I tell ya what
Coogrr: We’re getting a baby firmware update
nullvoid8: @TXC2 it's perfectly happy, this is BB equipment, not a person
empyreon: "baby looks happy" "ok, I'll fix that"
breathlessisthehunt: Too late my dude
nullvoid8: *perfectly ethical
RvLeshrac: You don't want your baby to freeze up.
CrazyZonie: You jammed a cable into your backside, and he tells you not to get attached?
Mr_Horrible: "This human baby is just equipment" Wow GDT is cancelled now
NightValien28: how do you not get attached to a literal child
Lord_ZYRK: What language do you think they use to develop for babies?
KV1NN4: Like a regular baby really
Alephred: If treating BBs like equipment grosses you out, be assured it gets better through the plot.
JadedCynic: @TXC2 unethical actions? Moral quandries? in a Kojima game? EGAD! ;)
TheThromborax: This thing being a baby was the first thing. Everything else grew from this
Vyous: It's Kojima, so I'm sure 5 years before they started any development
TehAmelie: sure, don't get attached to the baby attached to you. doubt it. . .
TXC2: "try not to get to attached" he said, about the thing with an UMBILICAL CORD!
plummeting_sloth: "There's no way to keep my BB alive" is my favorite DoWap song
NightValien28: first day, I bet kojima came out of the gate with it
CrazyZonie: "There's still a great deal we don't know about BBs." Have you tried asking Dr. Spock about BBs?
lirazel64: Honestly, this makes me very uncomfortable...
TXC2: JadedCynic touché
justwhatever_idk: I don't know if a stillborn dog would be less weird than a baby
MAPBoardgames: Heartman knows about blood.
Alahmnat: wait, are we getting our baby addicted to oxy?
TheThromborax: Hartman is just...so....damn
Mr_Horrible: Die-Hardman's brother, Live-Heartman
Neddy471: I'm pretty sure they started with the Baby and worked their way backwards.
ArcOfTheConclave: Do you want to know where heartman lives?
JadedCynic: Gee, maybe if we STOPPED being so cold and lifeless treating BBs like equipment - they might NOT be so unreliable? Just a hypothesis - we don't have to test it out or anything
claire_x: Has anyone informed the ethics committee about this?
TheThromborax: @ArcOfTheConclave no, it's too good
PsychoI3oy: oxytocin, not oxycontin
TheThromborax: it's how he sleeps
serialtram: i thinks it's to charge the cuff
electric_claire: For safety, Paul
Alephred: The game doesn't just gloss over BBs, there is so much examining of implications.
JadedCynic: Hey, to be fair, I tend to toss and turn in my sleep
plummeting_sloth: SAm, why do you keep acting surprised then when YOU do that to yourself
OmnipotentTrevor: He just got used to it
JadedCynic: yeah, given the dreams Sam has as a repatriate...
RvLeshrac: JadedCynic: To be fair, they're basically already dead.
ArcOfTheConclave: totally a dream
Neddy471: Yeah, it might keep him from sleepwalking or hurting people in his sleep.
DoctorAddams: Do the names have to b grimdark? Can I be Mister Chips...?
plummeting_sloth: "sorry, I mean Brit Knot City Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down"
CrazyZonie: Paul, imagine sleeping with your hand under your head. I'd be scraping up my ear with that thing.
electra310: "Am I gonna have to carry you the whole way?"
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth katesLol
Decaped: I wish the rest of the game's cutscenes were as good as that first one with the 3 porters.
GDwarf: "No one's having children, because people keep putting them in bottles and using them as RADAR systems"
plummeting_sloth: "Uh... I might know why people aren't having kids any more"
MAPBoardgames: can we go back to that "not having children" thing?
Manae: lady this is like a mass extinction event. maybe we're supposed to die out?
TXC2: "no one's having children" children? in this economy?
Alephred: The BBs are not made deliberately.
TheThromborax: yes, cities are a very bad idea
plummeting_sloth: yeah, it's sort of weird to be like "If anyone dies, they explode" and the reaction to be "Let
electra310: I think you kind of have to do a bunch of deliberate stuff to get a BB
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun nice insight
plummeting_sloth: let's cluster together
ArcOfTheConclave: No, people living together means that corpses are found.
JadedCynic: humans ARE (mostly) a gregarious species
electra310: !!!
Brozard: Would you kindly take a shower
plummeting_sloth: STOP TELLING ME i SMELL
TheMerricat: Heartman... are you watching me show?
JadedCynic: we want your waste products
empyreon: R00D
wench_tacular: so rude
CordialContriver: Take a shower, we need more data.
TheThromborax: "I can smell you from here"
MAPBoardgames: I can smell you through the chiral network.
DeM0nFiRe: "You are like a third of the way across the country and I can still smell you"
DoctorAddams: This whole thing reminds me of Final Fantasy The Spirits Within
TXC2: my reserch = stuff he puts up on clips for sale Kappa
OmnipotentTrevor: Do they still show ads on the stall wall when you take a poo?
electra310: That is too many options for using the toilet in a video game
NightValien28: sam central knot called, they can smell you, take a bath man
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!
JadedCynic: You're in St. Louis, and I can smell you here from Atlantic City
Alephred: There's plot stuff I won't spoil, but BBs are not made from regular, viable babies. I hope that makes it less gross for you.
serialtram: it does not
lirazel64: ummm... No.
TheThromborax: they should be gross
Decaped: I mean, BBs are meant to be gross.
TheMerricat: It's Hideo Kojima game, just go with the weirdness and remind yourself at least this time he isn't telling us that the vunerable killer woman has to walk around naked because she's actually a plant person who breaths through her skin....
Decaped: It kinda fits the theme of extinction of the human race and desperation and all that.
TheThromborax: I think part of the feeling you should contemplate with this game is "what extent will we go through to avoid extinction"?
Decaped: There's plenty of dumb kojima stuff later on to get mad at, anyway XD
RvLeshrac: Oh yeah did we get to watch Norman Reedus take a dump yet?
DoctorAddams: inb4 BB is the Godhead dreaming reality
TheThromborax: @RvLeshrac no, you didn't miss it
plummeting_sloth: oh shoot I should finish writing my midterm!
TheMerricat: Kojima is the best at coming up with weird setups and then working backwards through them enough make them _mostly_ plausible. I appreciate that of him.
Alephred: Norman Reedus has multiple hygiene options! All of which are relevant to the game.
lirazel64: I agree that the BB implications are interesting. The dislike is a visceral thing, kind of connected with being a mom and going through a Cesarean section.
TheThromborax: All reactions to art are valid
TheThromborax: I was cesarean. Never thought about the connection.
TheThromborax: but I see it now
JadedCynic: @lirazel64 that makes perfect sense - I guess Sam's abdominal scars probably didn't help lrrAWW
JadedCynic: I just wanna see Paul's reaction to what Sam does if we try to get creepy ;)
lirazel64: I mean, I'm still here... and I often have to nope out of Let's Nope, so...
JadedCynic: glad it's watchable for ya!
nullvoid8: @JadedCynic when do we try to get creepy?
DoctorAddams: You're walking along a magical beach and you find a baby in a jar...
TheAinMAP: katesAir
niccus: dont wake the reedus
TheThromborax: this game isn't "scary." It vascellates between "serene" and "uncomfortable"
JadedCynic: oh wow - Sam took a break while WE took a break
JadedCynic: maybe now...
JadedCynic: I can't help but wince at the red sore spots...
CrazyZonie: Time to poop in the shower?
MAPBoardgames: Every time you step into the shower, they call you. EVERY TIME!
LurkerSpine: can't have a shower in peace
Decaped: I just want a mod that takes the terrible names out
JadedCynic: ^^^
narset6691 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 36 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, narset6691! (Today's storm count: 20)
Alephred: Look what we made from your bath water! Imagine what we can make from your poop.
OmnipotentTrevor: Now you have a weapon to fight back
CrazyZonie: Hehehehe.... So shower water is holy water?
TheThromborax: poor Paul
niccus: gamer water is known to be powerful
JadedCynic: the concentrated wastes filtered out of our shower water...
TheThromborax: pooor poooooor Paul
JadedCynic: BT == simps?
Billy_Waggledaggers: It's all that Monster energy drink...
nullvoid8: throw your poop at them
TheThromborax: LOL
OmnipotentTrevor: Remember Paul, you can also just pee anywhere at any time.
PsychoI3oy: I'm glad Paul said it, I didn't want to
TheThromborax: bathwater
TXC2: are we gonna sell out bath water to thirsty bois?
RocknGrohlNerd: just pee on the ghost, easy
ArcOfTheConclave: @nullvoid8 that's later
RvLeshrac: nyannBlush
TheExactSame: Jarate tech
Alephred: This game is icky in many novel ways.
nullvoid8: huh, can you pee directly on a BT?
RvLeshrac: nyannHydrate
X_modem: Humanity's future may rely on Bell Delphine! [Facepalm]
RocknGrohlNerd: I'm waiting for "this is not a game" line
MAPBoardgames: Sorry to bother you, but I figured everyone else was, so...
TheExactSame: oh yeah. I love email from my clients
ArcOfTheConclave: @nullvoid8 correct
JadedCynic: bill collectors...jilted brides-to-be....Nigerian Princes...
OmnipotentTrevor: Your shower water is the weakest of the "grenades". If you use the toilet sitting you get the strongest
TheExactSame: no anxiety there
Decaped: I do think annoying you with incessant messages puts you well into Sam's headspace.
wench_tacular: male or mail?
Featherweight_: slow delivery 1 star
TXC2: Mail enhancement? Kappa
TheThromborax: enhanced mail is very important in the future
DoctorAddams: *writes down "spit on ghosts"*
MAPBoardgames: Nice TXC2!
nullvoid8: @ArcOfTheConclave for clarity, I've completed the game. Just never tried peeing directly in my playthrough
RvLeshrac: Remember to stay hydrated, specifically so you can more effectively take a piss.
IgorApp: enhanced mail.... e-mail?
wench_tacular: no judgement
JadedCynic: @txc2 whale plaid SeemsGood
TheThromborax: he did survive, but first he died
ArcOfTheConclave: @nullvoid8 iirc you def can pee on bts for value. but you need to be very close. and you also need a full blader
TXC2: MAPBoardgames JadedCynic thanks
Featherweight_: time to crush a sixer of monster and save the US of A
X_modem: Secretly the game is actually a Strong Bad game.
MAPBoardgames: This guy uses way too many emotes.
nullvoid8: that would explain it, I never drank enough monster to interact with the bladder system
NekomimiNinja: perhaps the same could be said of most work communications..
TheThromborax: Paul, before you leave, POUND all of the Monster on the table.
OmnipotentTrevor: Remember when this guy was probably born and learned to communicate
X_modem: A chilling pophetic view of our emoji future.
theneatestburrito: Maybe in the dystopian future, workplace emojis are normal...
ArcOfTheConclave: also, our eyes glow
Featherweight_: how does monster effect the BTs has anyone tested that?
PsychoI3oy: oxytocin, not oxycontin
Alephred: Do not mix the two Oxys up.
TXC2: they say Oxytocin, they mean oxycontin, gotta be subtle about it Kappa
Neddy471: Die-Hardman, and his friends: Beef-Hardmeat, Punch-Smackfist.
JadedCynic: how far in the future is this? we can literally track the increase rate of emoji use in communications in recent history...it's only to be expected, I guess...maybe not from a stick-in-the-mud like Die-Hardman, but...
JadedCynic: ;)
justwhatever_idk: @Featherweight_ too precious to use on a BT
MAPBoardgames: Cargo Cults?
JadedCynic: repetition breeds compulsion?
Featherweight_: but it's got what BTs crave
OmnipotentTrevor: Literally, the MULEs won't attack you if you don't have any cargo
fcloud: bt treats
Alephred: I named my Magic: Legends character Mindblast Hardcheese.
OmnipotentTrevor: You can walk right past them
DeM0nFiRe: I deliver, therefore I am
TheThromborax: THIS is where you get skeptical @LoadingReadyRun
nullvoid8: Paul, why are you delivering things in this game?
PharaohBender27: People NEED to receive their goods in a timely manner!
NekomimiNinja: To Kojima, postmen seem like crazy wizard people.
JadedCynic: that's actually a coping mechanism for people that deal with the dead...
RocknGrohlNerd: just like LRR delivers sweet sweet #content :)
nullvoid8: The Mules explanation is literally calling out the people that play this game
Lord_ZYRK: The blood of Hermes flows through my veins ( °Д°)
TheThromborax: @nullvoid8 well, HE'S actually getting paid
DoctorAddams: Delivery guys aren't made, they're BORN.
TheExactSame: we tried everything. and I mean everything
nullvoid8: @TheThromborax Call me when I can spend all these likes
Jean_Jacques_EB: pickled babies
claire_x: i keep on seeing BT and thinking British Telecom?
JadedCynic: Wait, right! We put a *baby* in a jar, not a full-grown man! Hey Adam, I think I have a solution!
OmnipotentTrevor: Less than a full human lifetime. There are some people you deliver to who can remember before the stranding
Featherweight_: we've tried everything! what about jar babies? You're a genius!
SnowBuddy18: 69 years
TheThromborax: @nullvoid8 try streaming! same thing
LegionofLashes: its been 3 years : dude 5 minutes passed, calm yourself
TheExactSame: we tried poodles in duffle bags
LordZarano: @claire_x same
DoctorAddams: @claire_x welp, thanks for that :p
OmnipotentTrevor: You can
TheExactSame: we tried geckos in plastic baggies
PharaohBender27: @OmnipotentTrevor Yeah, that corpse disposal guy at the beginning was reminiscing about the pre-Stranding world, and he looked no older than 60
TXC2: claire_x yeap, can unsee that now :p
RocknGrohlNerd: chug chug chug
accountmadeforants: "Haha, Reedus, I have you now! This cell is hermetically sealed from missions!"
Alephred: You can freeroam as much as you want and deliver non-plot stuff too.
JadedCynic: I do like 'Sam's' idle behaviours
TXC2: good old bepis cans Kappa
OmnipotentTrevor: I think if you use the toilet now you can get stronger "grenades"
JadedCynic: well, 'legally-not-Pepsi™'
wench_tacular: chugg chugg chugg
Featherweight_: the fact he doens't forehead crush the can saddens me
MAPBoardgames: Lets see if we can get Sam's heart to stop.
JadedCynic: look at him struggle to finish each can :D
Invitare: it's way too obvious
satyropodobny: who needs liver anyway?
lirazel64: what are the glasses?
TXC2: !clips
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
RvLeshrac: nyannHyper nyannHyper
accountmadeforants: All that energy goes straight to the baby
X_modem: lol
JadedCynic: I forget could we have changed our suit's colorscheme yet?
TXC2: "is everything else vibrating for everyone?"
RvLeshrac: Make sure you use the bathroom before we go, no stops on the way.
nullvoid8: pretty sure color schemes come at port knot
JadedCynic: @TXC2 "I can see soundwaves"
Featherweight_: accountmadeforants what do you think BB are floating in? Monstaer baaaby
TheThromborax: DADDY TIME
Invitare: the real reason men have a deep need to deliver things is because they keep drinking Monster Energy and they're ridiculously buzzed
JadedCynic: @nullvoid8 thanks!
BusTed: "Drinking excessive Monster energy drinks"
SuddenlyARabbit: Oh BB
CAKHost: They have a launch elevator for a guy that is going on a walk
TXC2: Le Cheife
Billy_Waggledaggers: Man binge-drinks Monster and complains of seeing things.
BusTed: What about the bad guy from Doctor Strange?
fcloud: launch elevators are cool ok!!
saravaughan: oh yes, le chiffre
W_Livi: Orson Welles?
CAKHost: Said launch elevator being large enough for a truck
DoctorAddams: So Mads Mikelson eats people, builds Death Stars, AND jars babies...?
saucemaster5000: Mads
TXC2: W_Livi :D
JadedCynic: @W_Livi touche :D
Lord_ZYRK: Do you think Deadman is a fan of From Rewatch with Love authThink
BusTed: Hey, you ever see Hannibal?
SnowBuddy18: @doctoraddams and beats up Bond
saucemaster5000: He's a good actor, but why didn't he do any magic tricks in casino royale? I thought that was his whole thing.
RvLeshrac: "Destination: Knot City" is one of the questions in the "Death Stranding Mission or AO3 Title" game
breathlessisthehunt: We do not understand..babies
CrazyZonie: Again, have you thought about contacting Dr. Spock and asking him about BBs?
Bluedevyl subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 24 months, currently on a 24 month streak!
Bluedevyl: I can finally make the joke! 24 months! That's actually 2 years! :) Loving the show, Paul!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Bluedevyl! (Today's storm count: 21)
SuddenlyARabbit: Is that really a safe assumption to make
JadedCynic: or a show called "Polar"...
NimrodXIV: @RvLeshrac LOL
SnowBuddy18: "babies were developed decades ago in secret" I mean, it's usually secretish
nullvoid8: @RvLeshrac both. definitely both
JadedCynic: now - bonding time, that we've been advised to not do :D
TheThromborax: "What's the deal with babies?"
RvLeshrac: Rocking the baby is a lot more effective with motion control.
CrazyZonie: I just realized something. Isn't a BB like a Tamagotchi?
JadedCynic: exactly, and you CAN 'pet the baby'
NightValien28: and then trico ate you several times
JadedCynic: @CrazyZonie interesting...yeahhh
Perchipy: If it’s Adam, would he let the baby out of the jar?
TheExactSame: restart the spooler
Neddy471: Have you turned it off then turned it on again?
bujabin: their printer is an hp
PsychoI3oy: "metals empty" "yes, but it's a resin only print, just print it!"
MAPBoardgames: You are literally the only person here.
JadedCynic: @Perchipy I think I've found the solution to his conundrum - we were dealing with a MAN in a jar; this is a BABY - totally different; we should let him know ;)
CrazyZonie: OMG... I could have sent some CICS commands to the printer. Maybe INACT and REACT the queue should work.
RvLeshrac: Perchipy: My BB Pod was shipped with *very clear* instructions not to open it.
Perchipy: @rvleshrac yeah but the ending...
LordZarano: @PsychoI3oy aah, those Epson memories
TheThromborax: All along the PCC doesn't have the same ring to it
Alephred: Fun fact: the Death Stranding collector's edition came with figurines, one of which was a scale-model BB.
noSmokeFire: consider fabbing one...and then cry, because your printer is dead
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac we have also been explicitly advised to not get attached to our BB, too, yet petting and rocking and soothing it seems to make it work better...
RvLeshrac: If a statement contains the words "the ending" it almost certainly shouldn't be sent.
PharaohBender27: @Alephred O_o
BusTed: Unfoldable ladder.
Mistborn83: Are you questioning Kojima? You are a brave man Paul.
CrazyZonie: Nanotech, Paul. Nanotech. It's not a cure all to make anything you want.
RvLeshrac: JadedCynic: Just like talking nicely to your computer.
saucemaster5000: They're still working on ladders that can only be used once
DoctorAddams: How long before they're asking Sam to grab some milk from the store in Wisconsin?
TXC2: why is it a hand?
noSmokeFire: tower nanobots are completely different from ladder nanobots
MAPBoardgames: Now that you've been told the Crystal collection Method, it's time to Get Busy, Child.
Mistborn83: @TXC2 they do explain that later
noSmokeFire: y'know, when they mentioned "chiral technology" I wasn't expecting it to be LITERALLY made out of hands
Mistborn83: Isnt there a motorcyle just to your left
Mistborn83: I mean right
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac Pascal's Wager - what harm could it do? :)
lirazel64: @txc2 Why not?
JadedCynic: well, Paul, it's all the oxy you gave them...
RvLeshrac: Alephred: Yeah, it is about 1x2x1.25 Road Quest Water Bottles.
Alephred: Look, Kojima is sometimes not very subtle about his themes.
TXC2: lirazel64 indeed
RvLeshrac: Alephred: Mine is sitting next to me for this playthrough :p
TheThromborax: you have rope
Alephred: Awesome! Also, weird! :D
RvLeshrac: It also isn't scale, it is life-size.
JadedCynic: That's WHY we have spare boots
RvLeshrac: (Might actually be slightly bigger?)
Alephred: Is it orange plastic? I assume it's not solid like amber.
nullvoid8: no, but you can recycle your old shoes and fab a new pair
Decaped: don't stop doing that! hearing people is fun
RvLeshrac: Unfortunately, it is just an empty plastic shell, yeah.
JadedCynic: oh wait, that's US? I wasn't watching closely, and I kept wondering who was calling out to us LUL
RvLeshrac: You call out, and you may respond.
RvLeshrac: Except that's not you, that's another you.
Alephred: Even the self-echo is explained in-universe.
Alephred: (you'll notice your echo sometimes says things differently than you)
nullvoid8: Sam calls out, sometimes Sam calls back as well
Mistborn83: does the rain ruin buildings? I cant remeber
RvLeshrac: We have reached the "Build stuff" part of the game, which is where the game basically becomes IMPOSSIBLE if you are not online.
JadedCynic: We're never really alone, we always have ourselves for company B)
TheThromborax: @Mistborn83 some things degrade over time and have to be maintained
RvLeshrac: Mistborn83: It degrades any structures that are player-built.
Mistborn83: that is what I thought
RvLeshrac: The game handles networking a little weird; you're put essentially in a "pod", and only see structures from a group of other players.
noSmokeFire: you'd need umbrella nanobots
NightValien28: can't make tunnels
breathlessisthehunt: sometimes looking at all those packages makes me feel like im hauling bags across campus, i can feel that backache lol
NotCainNorAbel: we can do that but still deliver packages one person at a time on their back.
Mistborn83: Paul you can build exactly what you are talkinga bout later in the game
TXC2: umbrella's take up precious hand space
OmnipotentTrevor: You unlock shelters soon
lirazel64: @loadingreadyrun My thought exactly.
JadedCynic: well, the rain WILL erode away player-built structures... @LoadingReadyRun
RvLeshrac: Not sure how it determines who is in your grouping, but at least at launch it didn't include your friend list, which was a little annoying
TheThromborax: it comes later, Paul
nullvoid8: what's the spoiler policy?
MAPBoardgames: There was a company that made those, but everything they made mutated into giant monsters.
RvLeshrac: No spoilers.
TXC2: forgotten Phelebotium is the name of that trope Paul
TXC2: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
TheExactSame: you grunt like a horse
nullvoid8: @RvLeshrac yeah, but is talking about future buildables a spoiler?
JadedCynic: @TheExactSame more like a ox or a mule...
RvLeshrac: Yes.
TheExactSame: @JadedCynic accepted
RvLeshrac: Anything that hasn't been shown in game is a spoiler.
Alephred: I really liked being able to pick up chiralium while moving. It was a fun mini-game to spice up my nature hikes.
noSmokeFire: it's probably fine
Lord_ZYRK: If it's a thing that is going to happen and hasn't yet, it's a spoiler
TheThromborax: watchtowers let you put waypoints directly into the world, kind of like Breath of the Wild, and are therefore VERY handy in making paths
JadedCynic: ysbrydPunjail
noSmokeFire: you had two quests, one for 1cg and one for a bunch
justwhatever_idk: you only needed 1, but you get a higher rank if you give them a lot
LurkerSpine: Just like Dinosaurs
JadedCynic: gee, is chralium an analogue for fossil fuels? ;)
Mr_Horrible: thought your little robot antenna was giving you a thumbs-up for a second there
Lord_ZYRK: Oh no, Paul's gotten a crystal addiction
Invitare: why does your sensor have emotions?
Alephred: You don't have to stop to grab a crystal, grab it on the run! Just time the button-press right.
RvLeshrac: Mr_Horrible: It was.
Mr_Horrible: ah, well then
RvLeshrac: The Odradek is operated by the BB.
Lord_ZYRK: Soon he'll be buying geodes from strange people in back alleys
TheThromborax: there is a ladder right next to you
JadedCynic: it's like that message from Die-Hardman - Paul's become a compulsive crystal collector
Mr_Horrible: "game features robotic thumbs-up from seance baby"
MAPBoardgames: The game says "Try standing still in the middle of the river lrrBEEJ"
RvLeshrac: Paul: You can slam the Like button *a lot*, please do so. I ask because player likes are REALLY HARD to get, especially nowadays.
Electrodyne: If Paul collects all the crystals, then monitors them without anyone else's permission, does that make him an Unlicensed Chiral Proctor?
e_bloc: if you are tired, try standing still
TheThromborax: some of the hands get big big big big and I mean BIG big big
Electrodyne: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
JadedCynic: @Electrodyne that was a long walk for a FootYellow
TXC2: Electrodyne that joke was a long walk off a short pier, good job
TheThromborax: "Brodye na Massye"
MAPBoardgames: @Electrodyne it wouldn't be a big adjustment. Provided he's got the backbone for it.
RvLeshrac: (Which is to say you can only Like a thing once, but you can Like dozens of times during the window that starts when you first press the Like button)
plummeting_sloth: I still think our characters first name should have been Jeffery so when we get him stuck on a boulder we could rename the game "Jeff Stranding"
Electrodyne: @mapboardgames ♥️♥️♥️
RvLeshrac: The number of Likes a thing gets also determine how long it sticks around.
accountmadeforants: I just hope a Jacob has a ladder somewhere
ArcOfTheConclave: look up "Worst ladder" on google images
Perchipy: Yeah, get a hold of yourself, Johnny!
RvLeshrac: So a ladder with 20,000 Likes is more likely to show up than a ladder with 5 Likes.
TheThromborax: "I award you no likes, and may god have mercy on your soul."
nullvoid8: anyone know if building sharing is region locked? would be pretty cool if I saw my name pop up
RvLeshrac: AFAIK the buildings that pop are functionally random.
nullvoid8: well, lets hope I'm in the lucky 10000 then
RvLeshrac: Very small chance your stuff will show up, but just depends on the area and how many other people are building there.
Alephred: Ah, I see there is an XKCD for 'worst ladder', I don't know why I was surprised.
nullvoid8: and that I'm watching when i happens
ArcOfTheConclave: @nullvoid8 iirc it's platform locked but I'm not sure if region locked
LordZarano: @RvLeshrac most of the ladders we've seen have had 0 likes though
justwhatever_idk: the distro center only has so much room
justwhatever_idk: so it's however much they can carry
noSmokeFire: the distro center has less room than our pockets?
X_modem: The facility only has the compacity to store 100 at the moment.
JadedCynic: @justwhatever_idk but I thought we were recycling them, nto storing them?
justwhatever_idk: it expands as the network expands
plummeting_sloth: huh.... looks like you made the computer do whippets
RvLeshrac: LordZarano: There are other factors involved, like the area you're in. Starting area is more likely to have a lot of things with very few Likes.
accountmadeforants: The distro centre isn't quite as greedy for crystals as Paul is
PharaohBender27: "Call me Crystal Sam" Kappa
justwhatever_idk: @JadedCynic I am explaining a mechanic, but I'm guessing a Recycled version of something also takes up an amount of space
TheExactSame: here's your bike. you just need a front wheel, handlebars and we lost the keys
RvLeshrac: LordZarano: Game also tries to balance it so that people have the opportunity to get Likes, while also ensuring people see useful construction.
plummeting_sloth: heh, I imagine that like the first aid spray from Resident Evil. Just spray yourself down like it's Axe
Electrodyne: Thoughts and Sprayers
noSmokeFire: a nice 420 likes
saucemaster5000: I love every character's assumption that, despite this being your job, you know absolutely nothing about this world. You must look really thick.
Alephred: It's first aid for your packages.
JadedCynic: @justwhatever_idk ohhhh, so like the recycling device only has so much room in its intake hopper - I get it! Thanks!
ArcOfTheConclave: the spary is a mix of liquified ductape an WD40
plummeting_sloth: ah now you can dump the rest
TXC2: ArcOfTheConclave that's like mixing matter and anti-matter Kappa
JadedCynic: like bootstrapping the facility
plummeting_sloth: "Okay, now that you've give me a few crystals, I trust you to give me a lot of crystals"
plummeting_sloth: 1066, Timefall Degradation and All That
Alephred: When you use the spray, you can actually see your cargo un-rusting, it's neat.
X_modem: Inventory Tetris!
JadedCynic: you gave us the 100 crystals, and we used those to make more recyclers so now we can accept much more than just 100 crystals at a time!
W_Livi: If you don't want to take all of it with you at present, you can leave it on the shelf and retrieve it later
claire_x: it must be duct tap and de-oxit
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah the bad guys are kind of annoying
JadedCynic: @Alephred so it's Rustoleum spray paint? ;)
noSmokeFire: making inventory management into an actual puzzle sounds like it could be its own game
plummeting_sloth: The last KNOT city is Tarkvo, for ultimate inventory tetris
justwhatever_idk: Lugging Stuff is a fun game
nullvoid8: correct
justwhatever_idk: stuff is Not Shared, yes
W_Livi: Each facility has its own locker and store of supplies, yes
JadedCynic: Yay, we can America back on track to exploiting the land for all its resources! LUL
JAGxTERRA: This game kinda screams corporate capitalism to me.
RvLeshrac: Well.
RvLeshrac: Share Locker stuff is shared, with other people, but locked to the facility you're in. Facility Locker is locked to you, and also locked to the facility you're in.
Saulens181: I think you need to make a new set of boots.
JadedCynic: @JAGxTERRA well, this aspect of it, yeah :)
JadedCynic: sigh
plummeting_sloth: Just barefoot it. I'll be more natural
TXC2: like a hobbit
Saulens181: Wait, can you barefoot it?
justwhatever_idk: yes
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth and more painful
Saulens181: is there a barefoot% speedrun?
Alahmnat: 'murca
justwhatever_idk: probably
Alephred: You can barefoot it if you choose. But it will hurt.
plummeting_sloth: ah, but with the benefits of Timefall you'll get calluses that must faster!
RvLeshrac: Don't have to be shy about taking stuff from the Share Locker, either.
plummeting_sloth: Alright time to quickly walk to Houston
RvLeshrac: JAGxTERRA: It is a little weird, a lot of corporate stuff, but also a lot of encouragement to Share.
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun remember what happens to when humans die? lrrCOW
justwhatever_idk: the bike needs to be charged
TheThromborax: you can - and should - throw your bathwater and other "grenades" at the human NPCs
noSmokeFire: sam never got his driver's license
plummeting_sloth: Sorry, you're a savoir and all but no one trusts you with a bikeshare
noSmokeFire: @TheThromborax ...is this a gamer bathwater thing?
fiftymcnasty: The savior of humanity: A FedEx dude
PsychoI3oy: isn't that a lot of games, though?
RvLeshrac: Also a little weird, you're not a hero, you're just a package delivery guy with a particularly important side mission.
Billy_Waggledaggers: No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater there, Paul.
PsychoI3oy: also what options do you have for the PCC when you're next to the bike?
lirazel64: Sounds like some of my corporate bosses.
MAPBoardgames: Your mission will literally save humanity. You still have to pay full-price for healing potions.
plummeting_sloth: well, time to throw the motorcycle on our back and huff it to a place where we can make batteries
Electrodyne: Collecting things and turning them in for cash? I like this Horizon Zero Pawn game
JadedCynic: @noSmokeFire the 'dirt' from outside includes a lot of 'chirellium' particles and the fact that we're a 'died-but-came-back' person makes our waste products...special (also a reason why we need to keep showering, the build-up could be...well, bad.
Alephred: On PC, we got the Horizon Zero Dawn cross-promotion. So some bases have gigantic Longneck holograms.
justwhatever_idk: PS4 also got those lol
TXC2: when is HZD2 coming out?
JAGxTERRA: "You're a super important person to us. Now, make this delivery chop chop."
RvLeshrac: Once people who are cameos are run across, should that cameo no longer be considered a spoiler?
Brozard: just take a wicked dunp into a tube
plummeting_sloth: and don't forget the rare cross-over Showering Norman Reedus that showed up in the new Halo
Lord_ZYRK: Gonna make you sweat YEET
JadedCynic: @JAGxTERRA well what makes us important to them is we're just about the only person willing to go outside and MAKE deliveries...
SnowBuddy18: urine a grenade?
LadyGrey21: I'm really sad they aren't. called bath water boms
RvLeshrac: Alephred: That's just part of the game.
JAGxTERRA: the pension better be worth it.
MAPBoardgames: Bodily fluids? Brings new meaning to 'explosive diarrhea'.
RvLeshrac: Alephred: There's no platform-specific stuff that I know of.
RvLeshrac: Unless they added a gaben cameo or something.
plummeting_sloth: "An ancient technology from the last tribe of porters called "Truckers", this weapon of a bottle filled with your own waste..."
Hangedman subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 51 months!
Hangedman: we're on the road to viridian city
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Hangedman! (Today's storm count: 22)
nullvoid8: yup, all the dirt paths are generated from player data
X_modem: kick punch it's all in the mind
lirazel64: @ladygrey21 how would you scent a bath water bomb?
Alephred: Interesting, @RvLeshrac , so I guess XBox Death Stranding also got HZD stuff?
RvLeshrac: As far as I know, yeah.
RvLeshrac: Death Stranding uses the same engine.
Hangedman: that's fine in this game tbh, focus is pretty important
Alahmnat: @nullvoid8 that's neat. like wearing desire lines into the terrain
plummeting_sloth: It would be cool if it acted as ablative armomr
n_mandrag: This guy is wearing half a car allready... him running cross country is an olympic feat. The only attack I could reasonably expect from him, would be to fall on someone and choke him out
plummeting_sloth: armor
plummeting_sloth: free boots!
Mangledpixel: so are those actual other player's tracks?
RvLeshrac: Combat's a thing. Game has already covered why killing is a bad thing.
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun or would it REDUCE your punching strength? more weight on the arm causes more inertia and saps force used?
justwhatever_idk: @Mangledpixel yep!
Alephred: If I recall, multiple players traveling a path can actually wear down the grass.
flufff42: If I recall correctly you can melee with items carried in your hand?
nullvoid8: there's a rope RIGHT there
RvLeshrac: Alephred: Yup.
justwhatever_idk: @Mangledpixel they can also sometimes be your own
Mangledpixel: @justwhatever_idk cool!
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac well, killing other HUMANS - we've seen that deer don't become BTs ;)
Hangedman: and that's someone's climbing rope
Alahmnat: @JadedCynic clearly the solution is Pacific Rim-style elbow rockets
Alephred: Yes, those stars indicate the paths other players took.
flufff42: Mules are "off the grid" I guess
plummeting_sloth: "These boots are moving on their own!"
accountmadeforants: Looks like the trails are being averaged out a bit, though. Because there were like five different names on the exact same trail, with no outliers.
TXC2: Biggus dickus? he's got a wife you know
JadedCynic: @Alahmnat well, in therory that WOULD work....
Mistborn83: it is what surrounds the mule bases
RocknGrohlNerd: throw him to the floor
Alephred: If you blaze a new trail, followers can thumbs up your path too.
RvLeshrac: He's married to Incontinentia Buttocks isn't he?
JadedCynic: yep, that's someone else's scanner
MAPBoardgames: If you bend your knees, they can't see you.
nullvoid8: yes, but it only tags cargo, not equipment
judaspringles: How long before John DeathStranding starts renting out adspace on the boxes he carries?
RocknGrohlNerd: @TXC2 any chance you know her name? avngrPog
Featherweight_: we pokemon now
noSmokeFire: maybe the mule's name is Boots
JadedCynic: wait, is this a MULE who's *name* is "Boots"?
Saulens181: right on the dpad?
justwhatever_idk: you can punch them with stuff
TXC2: RocknGrohlNerd I legit have forgotten, i just know that part of the scene :p
JAGxTERRA: @judaspringles I agree.
plummeting_sloth: Cargo PAUNCH
JadedCynic: ko, not kill
TXC2: Sneak attack!
nullvoid8: you should have rope, but I think it teaches you that in 5 minutes
Featherweight_: throw your shower water at them. They aren't BTs but it will still ick them out
plummeting_sloth: like his corpse
JadedCynic: there was a chiral 'hand'
Mistborn83: I did the mission very differnt
RocknGrohlNerd: @TXC2 yeah same here
Hangedman: there's a lot of ways to approach every place in this game, it's great
Saulens181: i think the game says "addiction to cargo"
justwhatever_idk: they are Hoarders more accurately I think
nullvoid8: her name is Incontinentia. Incontinentia Buttocks
JadedCynic: maybe....maybe Die-Hardmann is just barking up the wrong tree, and they're just hoarders?
noSmokeFire: it sounds like they deliver other people's stuff to their mailbox, so not ideal
Alephred: This game had minor Cyberpunk crossover content, because why not?
plummeting_sloth: they have an obsession with the groundbreaking Atari game MULE
JadedCynic: they deliver....to themselves
Billy_Waggledaggers: These guys seem more interested in de-livering things...
RocknGrohlNerd: @nullvoid8 nice ,thank you
Mangledpixel: !findquote sneak
LRRbot: Quote #4696: "'I would let her sneak attack herself.' 'As your attorney...don't.'" —Dale and Graham [2018-02-19]
BusTed: Get snuck on.
JAGxTERRA: Why is the FedEx delivery person attacking a UPS person?
plummeting_sloth: we know it's the bad-guy post box cause it's all shitty
SandwichKed: this game is all container porn
TXC2: we make deliveries of the SMACKDOWN!
JAGxTERRA: We escape from Trakov now.
noSmokeFire: greed greed greed
PharaohBender27: lrrGREED
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth ah, a fellow member of that tribe of the 8-bit days
Alephred: One knockout, addressed to you. Sign here please.
Featherweight_: backpack to the sky
ArcOfTheConclave: lrrGREED burry me with my money lrrGREED
MAPBoardgames: As it turns out MULE is just a rival transport company. They just told you they were thieves so you would take them out.
PsychoI3oy: UberEats here with your Knuckle Sandwich
JadedCynic: @JAGxTERRA just non-lethally - when people die, bad booms happen, remember :D
Hangedman: the interface for moving stuff around is kinda weird
W_Livi: I think you need to hit A after you selected everything
nullvoid8: you need to select "move" on one of the checked items
Mistborn83: all the way at the bottom
Featherweight_: YES
Alephred: 'Move To' your backpack.
wench_tacular: this seems fine
JadedCynic: seems like UI isn't Hideo's strong point
noSmokeFire: pERFECT
RandomTrivia: This seems perfectly ok
plummeting_sloth: we live here now
JAGxTERRA: I this where we put a backpack inside another backpack?
Alephred: This is fine.
RocknGrohlNerd: ahhh just leave it for the next guy
TXC2: I can hear a trombone playing looking at that :p
BusTed: A bit of a load.
plummeting_sloth: we are both a courier and signal tower
Alephred: The game will tell you when you can't hold anymore.
Mistborn83: dropping the metals is probably right call
SandwichKed: What's your STR again?
JadedCynic: @Alephred wow, we found the 'move all to backpack' button? :D
noSmokeFire: we're FINE
NimrodXIV: uhh
flufff42: I think you will find yourself a bit overencumbered
noSmokeFire: that's the coward's way out
TheThromborax: scroll to the bottom and confirm @loadingreadyrun
JadedCynic: weight, yes, but what about size?
Lord_ZYRK: Just don't trip 4Head
KV1NN4: hes going to be half an inch shorter at the end fo thsi delivary
PixelArtDragon: It's okay, you just won't be able to fast-travel
Alephred: We've had one backpack, yes, but what about second backpack?
LordZarano: Maybe swap Metals(200) for Metals(50)
RocknGrohlNerd: how does it hold together?
JadedCynic: 117kg? it's a load...but yeah, that'll be fine
plummeting_sloth: KLANG KLANG KLANG
Hangedman: magnets probably
CAKHost: That doesn't look comfortable :|
JadedCynic: @RocknGrohlNerd magnets IIRC
RocknGrohlNerd: and now... run for it :D
RvLeshrac: When it becomes relevant, someone warn Paula bout auto-optimizing.
nullvoid8: RUN
MAPBoardgames: Oh God. Can you imaging crouch-walking with that amount of weight on you?
judaspringles: have you peed in game yet?
n_mandrag: can confirm. 117 is possible, but sneaking would not be too effective
JadedCynic: trying, Die-Hardmannn
NimrodXIV: uuuurgh
RvLeshrac: Since the game doesn't warn you about it.
TXC2: judaspringles yes, once
Mangledpixel: !ing
JadedCynic: nice juke
nullvoid8: wut
JadedCynic: oh well
bujabin: so nimble
accountmadeforants: Just did a full on *teleports behind you*
JadedCynic: we can get that back soon
TheAinMAP: Uh oh.
plummeting_sloth: the Post Office is CLOSED
PixelArtDragon: Wait, there's combat in this game?
Billy_Waggledaggers: Gotta be some weight behind those punches.
judaspringles: Pee count is at 1
JAGxTERRA: Its like when a defensive linemen picks up the fumbled ball.
NimrodXIV: just run away, with all that weight on your back....
Lord_ZYRK: elfunkChunk
RvLeshrac: PixelArtDragon: The game prefers that you not.
Saulens181: Light as 117.5kg of feathers.
plummeting_sloth: you juked INCREDIBLY well considering you're basically carrying your own body weight in gear
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon oh yeah, we've just entered into the part where Kojima steals UbiSoft's patented 'infiltrate enemy bases' mechanic ;)
JAGxTERRA: think "light" thoughts
Alephred: Float like a refrigerator, sting like a bee.
wench_tacular: ouch, my ankles
MAPBoardgames: You protected the cargo from hitting that rock. With your face!
nullvoid8: you can carry thrice your body height in gear
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames Considering he's carrying like 100 pounds more than I even weigh, I really honestly cannot imagine it
fcloud: i mean, kojima has been infiltrating enemy bases since the 80s, i think he's entitled
X_modem: The real danger was the cargo we carried along the way.
PixelArtDragon: It could be worse, instead of 117.5kg of steel, it could be 117.5kg of feathers.
noSmokeFire: short-ranged, ladder-based teleportation
plummeting_sloth: nice and stealthy
judaspringles: HEEEY
wench_tacular: he was shouting his likes
Dandinstorm12: what up chat
W_Livi: I think it yelled because Sam wasn't facing the ladder at the time
Saulens181: a d d i c t e d t o c a r g o
Dandinstorm12: Hey Paul
PharaohBender27: (shaking) "Just need . . . one more container"
TXC2: hello Dandinstorm12 welcome
Hangedman: like proximity can be a bit weird
plummeting_sloth: Ice-T voice: It's a Neotropic drug that's hitting the streets. They call it Cargo
JadedCynic: we got isolated from each other...
TXC2: plummeting_sloth :D
NimrodXIV: yelling HEY is not... stealthy
Lupus2253: Ah Cargo Cults?
lirazel64: Damn, too real.
TheThromborax: "I can quit whenever I want!" "Cool, do I owe VAT it what?"
MAPBoardgames: So they really ARE cargo cults
Lord_ZYRK: Turns out people didn't like not having underpaid individuals to treat as subhuman, so we put it back in
JAGxTERRA: "Got any *scratches neck* pizza boxes for me to deliver?"
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames lrrWOW
Alephred: Might as well face it / You're addicted to crate
plummeting_sloth: boy you must have like no knees left
judaspringles: Amazon, a shining beacon of workplace happiness Kappa
n_mandrag: on the other hand - the lockdown and no human element sucks.
noSmokeFire: sam's knees can also come back from the dead
JadedCynic: Personally I hate Amazon and refuse to use it - I regret using Twitch every time I bring up the website
Lord_ZYRK: Speaking of, my printer cartridges just got delivered PogChamp
fcloud: "we would prefer this task be done by human labor rather than faster and more efficient machines", said no society ever
PixelArtDragon: Do you want same day delivery by drone, or next day delivery by huma
accountmadeforants: plummeting_sloth Kneecaps are space that could be used for more cargo.
RocknGrohlNerd: but yell at the world is just therapeutic, so I support it
BusTed: @Lord_ZYRK congratulations on your new wealth
plummeting_sloth: "There was a SALE"
couldntpickausername: *has been listening while working on something.* *looks up at screen* jesus christ, that's like me when I take a train to a con
Invitare: Amazon is awful, but it's rather diffcult to avoid. Such is the monopoly
Dandinstorm12: Look I was in Target and things just happened
Lord_ZYRK: BusTed PrideLaugh
judaspringles: @plummeting_sloth LUL
PixelArtDragon: The bargain bin at Staples was too alluring
bujabin: steam sale
JAGxTERRA: " I was chasing that cargo delivery high"
MAPBoardgames: Wait. If the MULEs are people who can't resist picking up cargo, what does that make us?
TheThromborax: There was a sale at Penny's!
electric_claire: What is Sam's spine made of that it hasn't snapped?
BusTed: I'd have been a fool *not* to pick this up!
lirazel64: Can't send you for office supplies without you bringing back the store?
PixelArtDragon: Adamantine? @electric_claire
JadedCynic: Based on Norman Reedus's height - Sam started this game at 1.79m...so far he's 1.61m tall, and we expect him to be 1.27m tall by the end of the game :D
TheThromborax: @electric_claire spite
Dandinstorm12: a bit yeah
couldntpickausername: so does it always have that many containers or does it scale based on how much you're carrying?
claire_x: @MAPBoardgames a MULE that gwts paid?
plummeting_sloth: man, there is just so much room for stuff in this apocolypse world
Mistborn83: I think he looks like tom bradys less attractive brother
claire_x: *gets
JAGxTERRA: They don't even let you inside for a coffee break?
JadedCynic: So, are MULEs Kojima's sly dig at bargain-hunters?
Alephred: The things you put on the conveyor belt and the things on your back both reflect the quantity of stuff.
RvLeshrac: couldntpickausername: There's a weight per-container
TheThromborax: @couldntpickausername there is no abstraction in the packages. if you are carrying it, it is a package
couldntpickausername: and if it scales, is there an upper limit, like if you installed a mod to have infinite carry could you like be drawing carrying 1000 containers?
TXC2: fun story: I once glued my shoes back together :p
nullvoid8: @couldntpickausername it scales, but hits a limit pretty quickly
JadedCynic: a cross between DaLancie and Ray Wise...kinda
PrimsAlg: apparently everyone at bridges has the same size feet
plummeting_sloth: Wait, why would standard issue automatically fit our character? did Bridges the company use our foot as the model for all it's employees?
couldntpickausername: darn, I wanted to be like balancing an entire cargo ship on my shoulders walking around
nullvoid8: @couldntpickausername disreagrd, I thought you were asking something else
noSmokeFire: ah yes, the Bridges Bridge
fcloud: a bridge! this is truly the technology of the future
plummeting_sloth: wait am I saying, the company has no other employees
TXC2: Disposable soles like disposable razors
justwhatever_idk: @couldntpickausername that modding idea conceivably could satisfy that need
Alephred: Yo dawg, I heard you like Bridges.
RocknGrohlNerd: no way @TXC2 :D what kind of magic is this lrrAWESOME using glue to fix stuff
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth I was just about to say "When Bridge's employee listings have one row in them....our feet are the mean, median, mode, max and mix :D
Mistborn83: That is what they say Paul the skilled handler
JadedCynic: *min
MAPBoardgames: Is being a 'skilled handler' anything like being a 'smooth operator'?
BlueMechanic: Is that Nicholas Winding Refn?
justwhatever_idk: same company different departmnet
JadedCynic: yay, INFINITE BANDWIDTH!!! INFINITE POWAH!!!! *cackles*
RocknGrohlNerd: yeah they can do data no problem, shame that world is so physical
plummeting_sloth: quick, send a message back to the past "Nobody die"
JAGxTERRA: Rs232 over TCPIP?
RvLeshrac: Paul: Imagine network troubleshooting, but to check the connections you have to die.
NeoSilverThorn: "We don't understand it, but we're using it anyways."
Alephred: One thing I appreciated is that you can actually affect the environment through your efforts.
noSmokeFire: "dude, I just asked for the wi-fi password"
lirazel64: You always have access to the afterlife!
MAPBoardgames: We have a negative ping!
BusTed: It's that negative ping technology.
ArcOfTheConclave: ping of -2.3?
nullvoid8: I'm pretty sure cavemen understood fire better than Bridges understands the beach
JadedCynic: we measure our ping in NANOseconds - ns!!!!
shendaras: Wasn't there a CH about twitch lag and low pings?
judaspringles: I wonder what this guy thinks of 5G Kappa
MAPBoardgames: Wasn't there a cH about this?
Invitare: they're messing with negative lag. Wasn't there a Commodore Hustle about that?
Alahmnat: as wwe said during the Jenny LeClue game, a calculated risk is not "we ran the calculations, and then took the risk"
Alephred: They must be using that Stadia 'negative latency'.
NeoSilverThorn: So long as the TV stays off, @Invitare
PharaohBender27: @shendaras Yep. Paul made all Twitch streams 30 seconds in the past (or was it futre?) so there'd be no chat lag
TXC2: that's gotta be weird, looking at pictures of your dead mother like that
JadedCynic: I wonder how Lindsay felt about her roles in the finished product?
plummeting_sloth: "The Memorial Foundation for the PResident who we have not acknowledged is dead"
JadedCynic: @TXC2 but you're one of maybe a half-dozen people who KNOW she's dead, so you can't talk to anyone about it...
TXC2: JadedCynic exactly
plummeting_sloth: honeslty, I'm getting big Metal Gear Survive "Normal Fence Researched" energy here
Mangledpixel: a bridge is nice, but it's no Normal Fence
JadedCynic: hope you talk about sinking that foundation down into the ground....
RvLeshrac: plummeting_sloth: People know she's exceptionally ill.
plummeting_sloth: haha, jinx @Mangledpixel
Mangledpixel: heh
JAGxTERRA: Sounds like Paul needs to start a union
TXC2: plummeting_sloth right? this whole UI has been reminding me of that game
JadedCynic: @LoadingReadyRun yeah, sure feels like Bridges has a 'too many generals, not enough privates' issue with their OrgChart...
TXC2: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 3:07:19.
MAPBoardgames: Found the Commodore Hustle! https://youtu.be/jv3qKqQskt0
X_modem: Bridges: Their Not Just for Falling Down in London Anymore.
ContingentCat: Meanwhile elsewhere some guy "damn I just wish I could build some bridges, if only someone wanted those, oh well"
PharaohBender27: @Mangledpixel @JadedCynic That MGS stream was the first time I lurked during a live stream - I think I might have even been there for that moment :p
Alephred: It's also interesting to think that this game is precisely what Kojima intended it to be, without corporate oversight and stuff like that. Straight from the author's brain.
plummeting_sloth: it's a little more egregious here, IMO, because seemingly we can make post boxes out of thin air so like... there is some WEIRD knowledge gaps out there
plummeting_sloth: And Sam Bridges gets another cm shorter
PsychoI3oy: 👍
TXC2: thanks for streaming Paul
PharaohBender27: Thanks for the stream, lrrPAUL !
wench_tacular: go Paul!
RandomTrivia: Thanks for the stream Paul!
lirazel64: interesting stream!
JadedCynic: I mean, I know Valheim is still in early access, but I've tried to help friends build long bridges and the game just won't let you do what you need to (foundation-wise for example)
Alahmnat: game weird
hoborg42: PogChamp
RocknGrohlNerd: still good fun to watch, thank you Paul
justwhatever_idk: stuff gets explained as you go, fwiw
Alahmnat: thanks for streaming, Paul lrrHEART

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Crossing the Streams (The LoadingReadyRun Crew comes together (from the comfort of their homes) to play game together. Game: Jackbox Party Pack) at Wed 05:00 PM PDT (3:50 from now).
MAPBoardgames: I'm still trying to figure out how the eastern US looks like New Zealand
PharaohBender27: @MAPBoardgames I looked it up, and it's because Kojima just based the land design on Iceland
TXC2: MAPBoardgames Kojima based it on Iceland
JadedCynic: Paul - as others have said: Kojima likes doling out his explanations for things, you just gotta be patient...
Terr0rc0tta: Paul talked about my month-weeks!
Alahmnat: I guess if you're building a post-apocalypse where everything ages super fast in the rain, having the whole landscape ground down into craggy hills and lichens makes a certain amount of sense
JadedCynic: Although I will go on record saying that one of Kojima's faults is not being able to accurately gauge the limits of the average player's patience...
