LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL Everyone got your walking shoes on?
wench_tacular: blister plasters at the ready
TehAmelie: i'm barefoot, actually. the best way to enjoy walks in nature imo
LoadingReadyRun: I'm pretty sure Sam wouldn't do too well barefoot
TehAmelie: only gravel and broken glass would trouble me. . .
TehAmelie: well, also nettles. and badgers. and snow
LoadingReadyRun: I feel like you want some arch support when carrying a 125kg backpack
TehAmelie: yeah it's not very good for business
TXC2: Hello Everybody
TehAmelie: if you're in a hurry at all. . .
LoadingReadyRun: It is a well known fact that Badgers hate bare feet and immediatly attack if they see them
TXC2: same with mushrooms and snakes
TehAmelie: i did see one once when i was wearing crocs and immediately realized i'd be in a lot of trouble if i needed to kick it
Ivalenz_: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW lrrSIGNAL lrrPAUL

Saulens181: o/
TehAmelie: all that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy! We ready to take nice leisurely stroll?
Tom_Bruise: A leisurely stroll indeed, but of the deathly hauntings one must take heed
NdroFox: A Hideo Kojima Game *MGSV Music Sting*
TehAmelie: if you look at the letters in the title card that has those umbilicals, it says EAT STING
TXC2: darn, I missed paul doing my Sub because I was looking at a double rainbow all across the sky out side my window :p
TehAmelie: strong subliminal messaging there
Astra7525: is she.. holding a BB?
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Nice!
TheThromborax: yes
Tom_Bruise: Eating Sting... must've been some people's dream
PharaohBender27: @Astra7525 Looks like it, but it's not in a container?
TheMerricat: @Astra7525 I don't know if we've gotten to the point where we find out what she's holding but it's a spoiler if not.
surtur15: rememer to lift with your knees, that's a lot of weight
TXC2: if looks more like she's holding a doll's head :p
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Fisty is back for her weekly punch appointment, and this time she has to quest deep into the glowing sea! | More of @Graham_LRR’s Fallout 4 LP, here! | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMlT2S9eP8g || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1375494785042018304
Astra7525: @TheMerricat I don't think we know what she is holding
thetoastmonster: at what point do his knees just turn to dust
Robot_Bones: Kojima might not want to bring you that much joy
TehAmelie: did you know? "newborn" babies in film and TV are usually three months old. they're usually a lot smaller
BusTed: Whoops.
Tom_Bruise: @thetoastmonster oh don't worry about that; Norman Reedus possesses a robust exo-skeleton that distributes the load across his body far more evenly
TehAmelie: the exoskeleton is our cargo
TXC2: TehAmelie if that, they can be even older
thetoastmonster: @Tom_Bruise ah so at the point of critical failure, all his bones collapse at the same time due to the even distribution. nice!
Tom_Bruise: yea but then he just dies and explodes. Don't worry about it!
Astra7525: I like how the buildings are apparently designed for easy ... rain runoff
TheThromborax: you do not have an exo-skeleton
Aenir798: We have an endoskeleton.
TehAmelie: i have an indie skeleton. you probably haven't heard of it
Mkingston: you don't
Lord_ZYRK: I can't wait to see if they mean a bridge in the sense we're all thinking, or it'll be something like "This is a BRIDGE, Sam. It's a cannon designed specifically designed to attack god, but they can only be built over water."
wench_tacular: of all the things that need explaining in this game, buttons isn't it
X_modem: Buttons are indentations on your controller that can be pressed.
TVsNate: Little known fact: Norman Reedus has an exoskeleton, it had to be digitally scrubbed
PsychoI3oy: it shows on the right how much is required
Mkingston: I loved this game. Took me almost 70 hours to finish.
TehAmelie: we can never escape Bridges company huh
shadowxviii: so, is the Bridges written on it becase of your company, or because people would no recognize it as a bridge without it.
BusTed: Fancy.
PharaohBender27: BRIDGE ACHIEVED
Lord_ZYRK: OSHA is dead
TheThromborax: no, if there were guardrails you couldn't fall the fuck off
Astra7525: "Death Stranding: Where every day is infrastructure week"
TehAmelie: did Bridget McPresident become the bridge builder because of her name or did she take the name later?
vellebastet: Hello!!
KV1NN4: without guardrails theres no risk of bruisign your elbows on them
X_modem: Are you going to take your bridge baby over your bridges branded bridge bridge strand bridge?
TVsNate: I genuinely really dug this game, as weird and Kojima-ish as it is. There was something very zen about hauling stuff around.
TheMerricat: You can upgrade bridges, maybe a level 2 bridges have handrails :P
vellebastet: How much have I missed?!
shadowxviii: Look, they ran out of raincoat
Tom_Bruise: everyone is stuck in these underground facilities, but they'll sure love those bridges
Pathfinder430: Everyone is a shut-in now
rucdoc: it's a very dangerous 100 feet, there are rocks and grass
PaperDoopliss: It's incisive commentary
Pathfinder430: Kind of like real life
Lord_ZYRK: With the space dilation, this is probably like 60km
Astra7525: @vellebastet 5 minutes tops
TheMerricat: We just started @vellebastet Paul came out and built a bridge just oudside the base
CompletelyUnsure: To be fair, if Ghosts from a hell-dimension were just hanging around, I wouldn't leave the bunker either
Mkingston: Death Stranding: Extreme Self Isolation
Saulens181: The scale is a bit off,, Paul. The distance must be at least *500* metres! Nobody can do that!
vellebastet: Oh, good. Thanks, everyone. :) lrrHEART lrrHEART
TheThromborax: not even Kojima has conquered tutorial bs
vellebastet: 🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿
TheMerricat: @vellebastet you did miss a totally awesome Beardtones reunion where Paul sang a round of Row Row Row your boat with himself.
TehAmelie: ooh does Sam experience the world as smaller than reality because of all his delivery experience?
Styxseus: I mean, they DO want the bridge, not so that THEY can use it, but so they can get deliveries easier, so it kiiindof makes sense?
Saulens181: @TehAmelie yeah sure lets go with that
TVsNate: @tehamelie that and all the future drugs
TehAmelie: obvs
TXC2: Sam is like Paul buyan and is in fact 500ft tall Kappa
PharaohBender27: @Styxseus I prefer my hypothesis: https://clips.twitch.tv/TemperedMiniatureTildeHassanChop-7dXkMASJGO-RHVB4
TheMerricat: The bridge is already deteriorating? CHEAP!
Lord_ZYRK: Is he humming London Bridge is Falling Down? PrideLaugh
TehAmelie: what else would he hum?

TVsNate: It took me AGES to figure out what those were
Mkingston: pee mushroom
Saulens181: ^
NdroFox: Pee shrooms!
TehAmelie: we had a professional singer belt Bridge Over Troubled Water in Swedish at grandpa's funeral. it was good
NdroFox: because Hideo Kojima!
wench_tacular: future tech!
vellebastet: Oh I'm sure there will be many a shanty to come with a Paul stream sykLaugh
FlyboyZeb: The future is now!!
Mkingston: the are a billion emails in this game
Brozard: Bridge Over Troubled Water
TVsNate: I spent a whooooole lot of the game forgetting about the whole peeing mechanic
Tom_Bruise: yea but phones don't serve as tethers to our mortal coil quite like cuffs do
v_nome: I feel like reading mail on cufflinks would be done one character at a time
TehAmelie: is that a real number? i mean i would believe it
NdroFox: The exposition dump text amount is quite a lot from memory
wench_tacular: my local delivery company could do with that lesson
TheMerricat: You know, I really don't like how familar all these folk are with me, would a Mr. Porter be out of order now and then?
TXC2: you get more lower back pain :p
rickerino1209: Hello
TXC2: hello rickerino1209 welcome
Brozard: Y'know, I wouldn't mind owning a retractable hoodie
HundreydAundre: D-du-dupe, doo!
TehAmelie: Sam despises being called by his let's say family names, i'm guessing cause he's the only True American™ left and it hurts his individualist heart
PharaohBender27: SingsNote It's a hard raaaain's, gonna faaaallll SingsNote
Tom_Bruise: Maybe get a helmet? With wipers?
BusTed: Does seem a little counter-intuitive.
Brozard: Maybe there's a vent on the hood?
Alahmnat: Paul, you're still asking questions in a Kojima game... ;)
Mkingston: Videogame:Don't think about it
RebekahWSD: Rain being on the game camera always makes me realize I hate having glasses in the rain
wench_tacular: were you expecting this to make sense?
lirazel64: Any of y'all know the Joan Baez song What Have They Done to the Rain?
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie From what we've seen, I've more thought it was because his relationship with his family isn't so great
TehAmelie: i guess dot jpg
Astra7525: Didn't the game explain that the timefall rain turns into harmless water as soon as it touches the ground?
NdroFox: The time-breaking rain as a plot device vs a mechanic did get a little... incoherent by the end of the game if I remember right
NdroFox: there's a real issue of gameplay-vs-story disconnect at times
rucdoc: quick emergency shoes
x0den: they've said in one of the documents that once the rain hits something it turns to normal water. still silly but they've covered it.
Astra7525: Maybe only rain hitting your skin first is dangerous
wench_tacular: lets hope it doesn't come to that
TheThromborax: oh
TheThromborax: this mission
Lord_ZYRK: Shoes don't grow on trees, but they do grow on small shrubs.
serialtram: for the view?
Tom_Bruise: I've tried the whole "sandleweed" thing, they didn't buy it and I had to leave the bodega
TheThromborax: stick to the path until you can't then pray
rickerino1209: I see no problems with that
wench_tacular: don't you want the situation to be normal?
shadowxviii: Hello !
Aenir798: Boots are Lost Technology. We don't know how to make new ones.
wench_tacular: stealth yelling
TXC2: "is there anybody in there?"
TehAmelie: wow, we have evolved from first aid spray to repair spray?
HundreydAundre: Oh, okay. My feed froze so I was like "Oh uh..."
TVsNate: Poor Woops McDisaster left so many really useful trails and nobody used them :(
flufff42: Mind your equipment, repair spray only works on containers
v_nome: Is "RandomTask" a player name or does the game contain Austin Powers references?
Scy_Anide: I spent most of the game accidentally hitting the call out button.
Mkingston: You'll be doing that a lot. Also, punching a vehicle instead of getting in/on it.
RebekahWSD: Does call out...do anything?
Rhynerd: Mushroom means somebody peed there, right?
Tom_Bruise: Have we tried making more windresistant boxes?
Mkingston: @Rhynerd yep
wench_tacular: my knees!
TheMerricat: Performance Enhancing Beverages... I'm surprised they dont' say "Monster Drink"
TehAmelie: we are more cargo than man now, i mean literlaly
vellebastet: sykLaugh sykLaugh
BusTed: Just... a little more...
Mkingston: weeclaFist
vellebastet: ummhmm
TehAmelie: Monster was a mistake. we should chug red bull and grow wings
PharaohBender27: "But you're not." ". . . So why did you even say that previous sentence?"
TehAmelie: remember those commercials? my second cousin got 20 bucks out of the class action lawsuit where red bull was forced to admit it doesn't actually make people grow wings
Tom_Bruise: But what about the marauders that could follow that proof and take our delicious boxes?
NdroFox: "If This Was MGS, Kojima would be making other deep-ish commentary right now, Sam"
Robot_Bones: the bonds of us all. the bonds of us all. the bonds of us all. Sorry to repeat myself but the lesson will stick better.
TheMerricat: LOL it's dropped cargo from the same guy that built the postbox....
NdroFox: That happens a lot
TXC2: well some people are just lazy I guess Kappa
NdroFox: the game has a (admittedly justified in universe) very small roster of npc names
wench_tacular: enhance!
TVsNate: getting the urge to reinstall and replay once I finish one of the other half-dozen games I got the urge to reinstall and replay
PharaohBender27: Trees! :O
NdroFox: I'm curious to see what my world looks like after being left for a year post-finishing
rucdoc: stuff covered takes less
TheMerricat: I'd bet it is.
NdroFox: How much does the game world advance when not active?
TVsNate: yup!
X_modem: yep
TheThromborax: I still have bad dreams about these woods
rucdoc: watch out for the BT's ion the forrest
TXC2: trees: natures breaks Kappa
LuveenW: it is! Arranging your cargo to minimize or at least spread out cargo wear is one of the key strategic elements of the game esp in later missions
TheThromborax: @LoadingReadyRun you have to equip it
NdroFox: The whole skittering down a hill simulation is way too real, I have literally fallen off mountains doing that lrrSPOOP
TheThromborax: you use it in the real world, not in the menu
Tom_Bruise: Quick, get the ducttape spray
Mkingston: you equip it and use in on the field
PixelArtDragon: You need a container repair spray repair spray
Mkingston: no
Mkingston: you spay it backwads
Mkingston: *spray
TehAmelie: The Long Dark did an excellent job i think where about ten seconds into the game you will twist your ankle if you try to run down a hill like you're in a videogame
TheThromborax: You don't have to unload the cargo
TheThromborax: aim the spray like a gun
PharaohBender27: lrrFINE
Tom_Bruise: oh no! Werewolves!
vellebastet: lrrFINE
wench_tacular: well this just gets better and better
TehAmelie: wait, metals? somebody else was yoomping this way to deliver a parcel of metals?
TVsNate: I cannot tell you how handy that "grip the triggers for extra stability" thing really turned out to be
NdroFox: At least this is after the early-if-not-day-one patch that made the whole "Oh No Bus" animation sequence a little shorter
NdroFox: at first it was annoyingly long iirc
vellebastet: sykLaugh
Aenir798: LUL
NdroFox: *Oh No, BTs, not Bus, appropriate as that autocorrect is
Aenir798: "HEY!"
vellebastet: H E Y M O N S T E R S
TheMerricat: You could just drop these metals and pick up the other crate. :P
NicktheNameless: This game actually changed the way I hold a controller so I could constantly press the triggers
NimrodXIV: it the shout button ever actually useful, or is it like Maaariooo?
TehAmelie: random thought, if you sat down to get your stamina back up you literally could not stand up again with that load
TheThromborax: perfect analogy
TheThromborax: axe bodyspray
X_modem: 😄 @TVsNate
TXC2: "bwhat's up everybody, it's ya boi Sam Porter Bridges"
TheThromborax: Don't forget you have gamer bathwater
TVsNate: @nimrodxiv Sorta kinda, later on down the line
PixelArtDragon: It's really quite amazing that someone managed to make "what if inverse kinematics was a video game" work
Lord_ZYRK: Well it's a good thing your last name isn't Ghostbuster
vellebastet: 🍿🍿🍿
wench_tacular: jlrrCooltunes
TheAinMAP: RPGGhosto
PharaohBender27: We are so boned
PixelArtDragon: lrrCREEPR lrrCREEPL
TheThromborax: You. Got.Lucky
TehAmelie: time to weaponize some adrenaline
wench_tacular: shake it like a polaroid picture
Tom_Bruise: let these haters hate, and let those fakers fake. Just shake
NicktheNameless: good recovery
TXC2: shake it like a poloroid picture
letfireraindown: shake it like a polaroidpicture
NdroFox: And now I'm getting flashbacks to the baby crying through my DualShock speaker, which legit scared the crap out of me first time
lirazel64: Pat the baby!
BusTed: DrinkPurple
TheThromborax: Did you already use your Bath Bomb?
Aenir798: Baby stressed
Tom_Bruise: Yea that cargo's lost. The ghost has it. It's theirs now
NdroFox: Engage With The Tube Baby
TehAmelie: by the way, one liter cans? that's over two pints for those who may not know
vellebastet: awwww
TheThromborax: oh yes, autotaxia
TVsNate: Counterpoint: "away from ghosts" is always the right way
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie That's a heck of a lot of energy drink for one serving
PharaohBender27: Or at least I assume so . . . unless coffee counts, I've never actually had an energy drink
X_modem: And to the BT over there with the hella good hair won't you come over BB We can shake shake shake.
Tom_Bruise: A litre of Monster Hunter is... a lot
TehAmelie: it is
Carlioo: so BT combat seems fun
Astra7525: also... I think we had a mission to throw something at the BTs innit?
TXC2: energy drinks are basically a black coffee with salt and carbonation added :p
TheThromborax: I miss my lucksack emote
TVsNate: even thinking about drinking a full liter of energy drink makes my teeth ache
vellebastet: Don't worry, Baby. Paul's got this!
BusTed: DrinkPurple
TheThromborax: and when you're done, you get to walk back!
Tom_Bruise: Oh right, this is a wind farm... and those must be wind harvesters?
TehAmelie: then in 30 minutes we'll need two more monsters to fight off the drawbacks from the first one. . .
PharaohBender27: Welcome to Pylon Land! How may we serve your pylon needs today?
TVsNate: I wonder, is the Monster license forever or will there come a time when Porter drinks Manstro?
TehAmelie: that's how they get ya, she said, while chugging pepsi
Aenir798: some button to sooth it?
PixelArtDragon: @PharaohBender27 I was told I must construct additional pylons?
CompletelyUnsure: Don't you have to stick it in your room?
dylan16807: dpad down I think?
TehAmelie: i'm assuming they paid Kojima company to get their name in here rather than the other way around
Mkingston: there's a button to look at baby and then rock controller
PharaohBender27: @TehAmelie Or just embrace the crash: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQwG33ylD_I
BusTed: lrrSPOOP
wench_tacular: a little cosmetic damage, be grand
Rhynerd: “Cargo’s haunted”
Carlioo: looks fine to me!
dylan16807: L1 then dpad down?
TVsNate: It's like multiple buttons then shake, it reminded me of holding people up in MGS games
shadowxviii: ghosthandled
vellebastet: whoo!
TXC2: Sawesome
Mkingston: weeclaFist boupheGood
Tom_Bruise: Yea there's the box of stuff, and then there's the box around the box of stuff. First the outer box takes damage before the inner box
Rhynerd: Maybe that’s why the cities have weapon locking fields. Too many people started pulling out pistols to make the “cargo’s haunted” joke.
TheAinMAP: Would it be helpful to fly above the storms, or is there something worse up there?
surtur15: hey, I'm a non-native speaker, any idea why it is called a Dpad?
TVsNate: Plug us in, combination UPS/IT Guy
n_mandrag: Directional Pad
TXC2: surtur15 D for Direction
BusTed: They could only afford a bunch of 256 GBs.
Carlioo: sam is looking real gundam-y
PharaohBender27: Limited bandwidth? Ah, man!
shadowxviii: Seems like you're crossing the continent quite quickly
surtur15: ooh, it makes sense, we just call it the cross
NdroFox: B a n d w i d t h
TXC2: so it's quantum entangled then?
PharaohBender27: @shadowxviii Yeah turns out the Timefall or the BTs or whatever reduced the continental US to 1 acre Kappa
TheMerricat: @TheAinMAP So I don't know if the particular conversation concerning it has happened yet or not but there _IS_ a reason why they aren't trying to fly or use drones in game.
TehAmelie: hmm our job level is 31 after going through what, 10% of the game at most. by comparison (as far as i know) there are 33 levels of Freemason membership
PixelArtDragon: It's weird, when I was young and only really had ever used Nintendo stuff I thought it was a Dpad because there are A and B buttons, C buttons, and a D pad.
TheAinMAP: Ah.
TacitusVigil: How goes UPS: The United Paul Service?
TVsNate: I wonder if Norman's ponytail ever gets caught in his mechanical hood
TXC2: given how fast things degrade, a plane probably isn't that safe :p
Lord_ZYRK: PixelArtDragon well the C stood for Camera iirc
TehAmelie: ooh, if we let them drink your blood they'll maybe run away
PharaohBender27: "Which is why we need to harvest your blood!"
shadowxviii: Just bleed all over the place
Aenir798: Just spit at them
Tom_Bruise: Just get, say, a spray canister, and just fill it with blood
Rhynerd: Or pee on them.
TacitusVigil: Don't worry, we can just use your mom's blo-oh, right.
wench_tacular: worst conference call ever
NdroFox: It's not Kojima without Bodily Fluids
Astra7525: Are we going to get a gun that uses our blood as ammunition?
shadowxviii: why are you bleeding in your shower water ?
Bionull: Based on that you'll be safest if you drop all this equipment and run around naked. Don't want it to block your blood.
TehAmelie: our pee is 100% Monster, it'll destroy anything
TacitusVigil: Do we know why he wears a mask?
wench_tacular: sure, no sense to you
TheMerricat: Die Hartmann, can I ask you a question? Why is EVERYTHING named Knot City something or other? Did we forget the real names of places?
TVsNate: Porter, taking that idea to its logical extreme, teaches himself to turbo-cry on demand
Tom_Bruise: "Sam, now that you've completed this job, it's a good time to look at side quests"
Lord_ZYRK: TacitusVigil nobody knew who he was until he put on the mask. . .
NdroFox: I think a lot of the "real named" places are now those big-ass holes in the map
NdroFox: the Knot Cities all seemed really new looking (except the first city anyway)
shadowxviii: Can you repackaged them ?
RobotInProgress: ooh, was not expecting this. reminds me that I need to play some Death Stranding myself
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Because we're building connections, and knots tie things together, and tying is a form of connecting, maaaan . . . (though I honestly wouldn't be surprised if that *was* what Kojima was going for :p )
TacitusVigil: Naming all of them X Knot City seems...not great though.
NdroFox: It's... Kojima Brand thematic naming, blunt, to the point, yet utterly confusing also
TVsNate: after talking to the settlers everyone seems pretty bitter about the old world, people probably just said "screw all those old names"
TacitusVigil: "Here's your package. That'll cost $30 million."
surtur15: The Knot part can be because in electronic circuits any place that connects more than 2 things is a knot
shadowxviii: Let us "reward" you with the tools you need to do the job with forced you to do
PixelArtDragon: Why did that sound like "rockabye baby"
TacitusVigil: Oh god, I just realized...this is basically The Postman.
Carlioo: wait maybe everyone else already noticed, but is the leader of the wind farm really called jake wind
TXC2: the knott city thing sounds like best the Translation team could do
Carlioo: is it him they're farming
TheMerricat: I'm with Paul, "Hey maybe you let me have access to all the shit I need to do my job at the start instead of dribbling it out like it was candy?"
Lord_ZYRK: TacitusVigil someone pointed that out last stream LUL
TXC2: Carlioo people's last names are their jobs
PharaohBender27: @TacitusVigil Yep. The Postman with a splash of cosmic horror
TehAmelie: "wow Sam, how do you cry on command?" "my secret is, not crying is the hard part"
NdroFox: The translation on Death Stranding comes across better than at least some of the Metal Gears, I think a lot of the names are more just Kojima being Kojima
TacitusVigil: @Lord_ZYRK Fair. :D
NdroFox: (I say as a Metal Gear fan)
shadowxviii: Please save the world, also deliver thses donuts while you're at it
GamesAndInk: "We, your employer, are going to ALLOW you to take on freelance work, so long as it doesn't interfere with your main job."
Bionull: Oh yes, I'm just made of free time. Nothing better to do.
PharaohBender27: @Lord_ZYRK People have been pointing that out this whole campaign :p
TacitusVigil: @PharaohBender27 Kideo Kojima presents: The Postman
n_mandrag: Couldn't hurt ?! Lady, have you seen the bill for Sams physical therapist to repair those backdamages ??!
TacitusVigil: *Hideo
PixelArtDragon: 45 minutes or it's free
NdroFox: Has the person talking been introduced in the plot yet? I can't remember
TacitusVigil: @PharaohBender27 Is the cosmic horror that one person every stream realizes it's just The Postman?
TacitusVigil: Kappa
TheMerricat: @NdroFox the woman or the man? I think both have
TXC2: this is episode 3, so we have some plot
PharaohBender27: @TacitusVigil katesLol
shadowxviii: 45 minutes starting when you pick up the thing
TXC2: TacitusVigil :D
NdroFox: @TheMerricat the woman, and fair enough
TheMerricat: @NdroFox The man is Die Hardmann, he's our bestie who hangs with the president. The woman is the president, I think.
TVsNate: I thought the cosmic horror was realizing just how interested everybody is in your pee and bathwater
PharaohBender27: Fun fact: When my folks and I were visiting my grandparents in Arizona when I was a kid one year, we spotted some of the film crew for the Postman doing some outdoor shooting
n_mandrag: @TVsNate no , thats just your everyday bodyhorror
Tom_Bruise: whole lot of volume, not a lot of mass.... so just to mess with your wind resistance?
NdroFox: @TheMerricat Ah, then no she hasn't (it's not the president it's someone else) I just couldn't remember if her voice just started turning up in my playthrough before an intro
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat No, the president is dead (but don't tell anyone), remember?
TehAmelie: is The Postman any good? i just realized the closest i've been to watching it is a joke in The Simpsons about its DVD commentary tracks
shadowxviii: Backtracking ?
shadowxviii: Aren't we supposed to be going West ?
PharaohBender27: Alexa pls
NdroFox: @TehAmelie it's... an interesting bit of wasted potential? It's a bit plodding honestly, shame since it's an interesting idea
TheMerricat: I may be one of the few people who don't hate the Postman, I just think it was typical Kevin Costner's pretension, which can be amusing if you are willing to put up with it.
Tom_Bruise: "Don't turn me off, please. It's cold in the dark"
TehAmelie: sounds worth a watch
Lord_ZYRK: Damn wiretap always wants to chat when you're busy Keepo
shadowxviii: What if we just march West disregarding what everyone else says ?
NdroFox: Fallout New Vegas is basically a more interesting version of The Postman lrrBEEJ
TXC2: the postman would have worked better as a TV show I feel
Creideiki_SE: I haven't seen the movie The Postman, but I've read the book it's based on, by David Brin. It's great.
Perchipy: Paul’s Alexa is turning into laughtron
shadowxviii: If there are ghosts, you can just bleed on them now
shadowxviii: Fill a super soaker with the stuff
NdroFox: The arbitrary restriction on what can be repaired to what degree got a little annoying as the game progressed for me
TehAmelie: unsurprising, searching for the movie brings up The Postman Always Rings Twice as the top results
TXC2: that's uh.....that's a VERY different movie ;p
serialtram: f
twistedlock23: nice
Saulens181: the first of many!
TXC2: well RIP that knee

Rhynerd: That looked like it hurt
BusTed: rayfkDont
TheExactSame: Im glad the falls are funny
Tom_Bruise: Be sure to pick that asphalt out of your teeth
shadowxviii: So, have you been able to do anything with your likes so far ?
TXC2: if you did that IRL, you'd have to stop for a good 10 mins to get your breath back :p
TehAmelie: we have weapons? or just the other guys?
TXC2: shadowxviii you can like things like ladders ans such that other people leave around, makes then last longer
Lupus2253: I wonder, does the bridge work as rain cover?
TVsNate: I wonder how in depth the mocap for Porter eating it was. How many days did someone have to just collapse over and over again?
TehAmelie: this looks like a proper old growth forest. it's nice
NdroFox: @Lupus2253 I think it did, until the bridge breaks anyway
NdroFox: The "multiplayer" building mechanic did lead to some... interesting things going on on my map
TehAmelie: maybe the ghosts are just nature's way to keep people in the cities we made
shadowxviii: Who's reading your yelp reviews though, you're the only other human outside
TXC2: "when the monsters don't eat you, this is a nice forest." Yukon Settlers, Circa 1800's
wench_tacular: A bit like here in Ireland, grand when it's not raining
TehAmelie: what if you like rain? :3
Lord_ZYRK: It's only spooky when it rains
Lupus2253: @NdroFox That is great, if it allows to play with the usability of the constructions in that way.
Mushbie: @Lord_ZYRK set to the tune of the song by Garbage?
Lord_ZYRK: You know it
X_modem: In the brief 5 second window it's not prepetually raining in this forest... not bad!
GDwarf: A like from BB? Kids get on social media so young these days...
TehAmelie: Billie Myers - Kiss the Rain
shadowxviii: Hold up ! Are we drinking Timefall water ?!
TXC2: dear other games: you see this?! you see how step that is? you see how we can still go up it?!
shadowxviii: Is that what that hint was saying
TehAmelie: okay who gave the fetus sealed in a magic juice jar a smart phone? and HOW?
TVsNate: nope! Monster energy drink MADE FROM timefall water
PixelArtDragon: "So, you are walking through an enchanted swamp, or spooky forest..."
TXC2: "I like this rope, I shall give it likes"
NdroFox: The Monster product placement is absolutely hilarious
shadowxviii: Is there a way to turn off seeing other people's stuff ?
TXC2: eh, I view this as using public works like roads
TehAmelie: turning off your machine's internet connection probably work
NdroFox: It's Demoltion Man level "The Only Energy Drink to survive the apocalypse"
TehAmelie: s
serialtram: wimdy
twistedlock23: hes dancing
PsychoI3oy: IIRC you can play 'offline' to not get other people's stuff
ritchards: Okay Norman, we need 10 hours of wildtrack of you grunting and exerting...
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun To be fair part of Hideo's whole 'point' with this game was helping each other so using other player's stuff seems totally on point for this game.
NdroFox: You can also dismantle other peoples stuff *only on your map* if it becomes a problem
Saulens181: Copyright time!
NdroFox: I think for no resource outlay too
TehAmelie: in my headcanon they had him doing something like this for a week straight to get the authentic sounds
Mushbie: I wonder if the PC version can be modified to not have the copyrighted music
shadowxviii: Last time there was not muted section like for the first stream
serialtram: yay! uncontrollably loud music time again!
TacitusVigil: Nice try Hideo. But much like the Borg, we've adapted.
NdroFox: The soundtrack was pretty nifty for this game, I thought
Rhynerd: And now for Kojima’s efforts to make you listen to music he likes
TacitusVigil: If you have to reupload, can you replace it with Yakkity Sax? Kappa
shadowxviii: Hideo "Listen to my Spotify playlist" Kojima
vellebastet: What a mood
TehAmelie: music that he likes and could afford to licence, anyway
CaptainSpam: Kojima *MADE* us his awesome mixtape, and we are *GOING* to appreciate it. Kappa
PharaohBender27: Oh, well at least maybe only 1 minute instead of 10 will get muted :p
PharaohBender27: Nevermind
Astra7525: I wonder... does an accumulation of people walking the same route eventually create a footpath?
TXC2: Surprised kojima hasn't added any bowie, maybe he reserves that for MGS
wench_tacular: I'm impressed he can get back up
shadowxviii: What's wrong with sleeping in the middle of a mountain cliff ?
Bionull: No problem with a 20 minute nap in a 45 minute delivery.
NdroFox: @TXC2 And even then it was the Midge Ure version of the man who sold the world :P
TacitusVigil: "To understand your pay dock, please reply "Productivity" "
TehAmelie: Led Zeppelin will take a million dollars minimum to licence Stairway to Heaven for anything, just cause they don't want people to put it in everything. i like that integrity
NdroFox: I didn't know the music cut out when you rested, that's kinda neat
shadowxviii: *stands up, arms raised* BRIDGES
TacitusVigil: Idea for a mod of this game: It's exactly the same but we're on a Segue. The balance controls are to balance the Segue. Kappa
Mushbie: The BRIDGES train has no breaks
Rhynerd: I imagine the list of tasks that become more pleasant when people are trying to eat you is very short.
TheMerricat: Chat, anyone else come unstuck in time this month? I just now realized it was Friday because I was wondering if Checkpoint would cover Reggie leaving GameStop and then realized I found out about it from this week's Checkpoint... :D
ComplexedOne subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 37 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ComplexedOne! (Today's storm count: 11)
shadowxviii: Persona Joker or Batman Joker ?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Probably because it's a proprietary engine.
TXC2: changing skins = show nothing but skin Kappa
GamesAndInk: Big brain play: find the music files, replace them with Road Quest music.
GDwarf: If nothing else, he clearly doesn't live in a society :P
TehAmelie: i bet this is a game where nude mods aren't super popular
NdroFox: I'm surprised there aren't mods that swap around the celebrity models a little
TacitusVigil: @TXC2 We already had him naked before, so that should be easy.
NdroFox: I want an Ed Wright Sam Porter, damnit (well, not really)
TacitusVigil: The model must be in the game!
twistedlock23: first day shipping
vellebastet: sykLaugh
TacitusVigil: "The Rending"
shadowxviii: I mean, isn't that what Amazon is trying to do, but with drones ?
TacitusVigil: Oh, can we throw more boxes at James' head?
NdroFox: Just wait 'till later, when you get multiple constraint challenges. The "time *and* kept level *and* can't put on back" ones were nightmarish
twistedlock23: imagine that but with like those boston dynamics robots
TheAinMAP: Not quite like hitting the 'now' option, but close.
PharaohBender27: Wait, is Port Knox City meant to be Knoxville?
Astra7525: They were right. Gamers DO LOVE free 1 day shipping
TVsNate: enormous backpack and a baby in a Tupperware container
shadowxviii: It's not free shipping, it costs them "likes"
Bionull: Legendarily average
NdroFox: your feedback whiplash can be such a mood in this game :P
W_Livi: "legendarily average"
NotCainNorAbel: legendary average
X_modem: It's the first time the Decima engine has come to PC if I remember correctly, so modding is probably a little extra difficult.
TheExactSame: it's like, hey there champ
TacitusVigil: To be fair, 90% of the packages we're delivering are, I assume, medicinal marijuana.
Bionull: Just like us three who came up with the same thing
W_Livi: heh
TheMerricat: So just in case anyone is getting excited about Paul talking about mods for Death Stranding, someone already released a 'nude' mod that at least let you unlock the camera in certain scenes where folk are already nude but hidden by the camera, and appearently while Sam delivers packages, he doesn't have one.....
TehAmelie: while we're on Kojima, it gets pretty funny (sad) if you search for nude mods for Raiden, a guy who actually runs around naked for a bit in game, compared to Mute, a girl wearing underwear
NotCainNorAbel: lrrDILLY
Tom_Bruise: Before this game is through, Sam will ascend to become the God of Boxes
TacitusVigil: Rate me four stars!
CaptainSpam: @Tom_Bruise Wait... are you saying Sam is Boxnard's true identity?
Bionull: It's all about self promotion, Paul
twistedlock23: amazon but an RPG
Creideiki_SE: When do you get to be The Deliverator?
wench_tacular: maybe they tried and now they're dead
TXC2: TehAmelie the video that replaces mute with Snake in the Rain dance scene is good and yet so telling
shadowxviii: Get ready to increment the "Normal Reedus wakes up" counter
GamesAndInk: Maybe being 'legendary' is what makes you mediocre. GOOD delivery people do things so quickly and anonymously nobody ever learns their name.
rucdoc: there was, she retired
TehAmelie: i don't know what this rain dance is but i can picture it
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!
n_mandrag: cycle the canteen
vellebastet: sykAds sykAds sykAds
twistedlock23: nice
Astra7525: Deliver some "samples", Paul
Robot_Bones: Time to rotate the fluids
TehAmelie: remember chat, you'll be ashamed of your words and deeds
TehAmelie: Kappa
wench_tacular: Ah, a RedBull advert. that seems on point
TXC2: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always carrying $3.17 in mixed coins.
surtur15: US$ or canadian?
TehAmelie: my theory is mixed coins from every dollar denomination
TheMerricat: TBH I checked LoversLab, which is the go to site for adult mods for most games (at least mods that aren't just swapping out texture files) and DS is barely mentioned. I mean there's an entire mod pack of naughty mods for the Darkest Dungeon....
lirazel64: I do kind of like the idea that if you want to get out alive you have to take care of babies.
TehAmelie: i am Jack's complete lack of surprise
TXC2: and we're back
vellebastet: Welcome back
TehAmelie: hi again!
TheAinMAP: katesAir
vellebastet: Keeps the mood
PharaohBender27: There was also breathing noises
X_modem: I think these people in the game's world are just so starved for interaction being the world is so isolated that they overdo it with the hyperbole.
GDwarf: Now for more time as the Bridges porter Sam Porter Bridges
wench_tacular: those shoulder welts, ouch
TehAmelie: i think the baby noises are purely psychosomatic. i mean, the ghosts clearly don't hear them
TacitusVigil: You mean sweat?
shadowxviii: make sure to bleed a bit in there
wench_tacular: do you want to take that again?
TXC2: why is there always a hand mark on our legs?
TheMerricat: holy cow he really does dress fast
TacitusVigil: This job stinks. We should unionize.
TacitusVigil: Wait, what?
wench_tacular: crush a dew
Tom_Bruise: "Sam, we have upgraded your tactical hud so you'll know when you can go plopsies"
dooppatrol: branding!
TVsNate: people are a lot less supportive when I throw MY handmade sweat grenades at ghosts
Lord_ZYRK: TXC2 we've got hand marks all over for plot reasons
TehAmelie: ah, he does keep a supply of five liters of monster at that table at all times
shadowxviii: Recycling !
PharaohBender27: Just chug it right down
TacitusVigil: They...still have Monster in this dystopia?
shadowxviii: A second one ?!
TacitusVigil: Exactly like it is now?
TXC2: Reign is better anyway Kappa
GDwarf: Monster helped fund the game
GDwarf: I assume that means in-universe that they founded Bridges
GDwarf: :P
n_mandrag: You misunderstand - it is a dystopia because they ONLY have Monster. Water is toxic to drink :p
shadowxviii: See I don't mind that kind of very blatant product placement
PharaohBender27: WOO! Let'sgetgoingonthisdeliveryI'msofuckinghypetodelivercargomanyouknow
TehAmelie: Timefall happening in your stomach right now, except it's not science fiction
TheMerricat: K, this guy is starting to lay on the praise just a little to thick
NotCainNorAbel: yeah but my amazon order
vellebastet: sykLaugh sykLaugh
wench_tacular: sure, sure, but in between?
dooppatrol: isnt that the most american way of doing things though
TheMerricat: Ok, so chat, Benjamin H just told us he thinks he sympathizes with BB because his LAST name starts with B.
TXC2: we need to six our boxes
TXC2: *fix
TVsNate: the people of this time period seem to give absolutely zero shits about the US... until you drop off a crate full of magazines or whatever
TXC2: didn't this game come out last year? :p
shadowxviii: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: legs?
Tom_Bruise: somewhere in 2019 I think?
wench_tacular: and some leaves
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Year before last?
PsychoI3oy: aren't you planning on using a PCC just outside?
lirazel64: can you make another bridge?
shadowxviii: The more ladders you carry, the less packages you can grab on your way
surtur15: @TXC2 for divere definitons of year
TXC2: nov 2019 for PS4, July 2020 for PC
TXC2: So i was both right and wrong
TXC2: I was Wright...wait
vellebastet: sykLaugh
TheMerricat: I'd say "Console Game" but you are playing on a console so....
lirazel64: It's not a consoling game, for sure...
TehAmelie: i'd vote for her
wench_tacular: who wouldn't vote for the Bionic Woman?
TehAmelie: i figure the game will leave you consoled like, with an original Xbox
lirazel64: ;)
TehAmelie: does that mean there are post-stranding movies?
Astra7525: oh hey, I have JUST noticed the massive crater to the south of the capital
PharaohBender27: @wench_tacular Anti-nuclear activists? (Part of the shtick for those shows was that their enhancements were nuclear-powered, wasn't it?)
TVsNate: Don't get excited, it's like the middle 30 minutes of Freddy Got Fingered
shadowxviii: Bike !
shadowxviii: Try not to run over people with that one :P
serialtram: reverse trike...
TehAmelie: reverse trike, or Trabant
TXC2: so an Ekirt ?
Astra7525: @TehAmelie more like an Isetta than a Trabant
TheThromborax: Reverse Trike is the mullet of cars. Business in the front, party in the back
vellebastet: That's a pretty perfect description ^
TheThromborax: the trike does give you more cargo
TehAmelie: is it "reverse" just cause it has the two wheels in the front? i don't think that's a rule of tricycles
TheThromborax: you can and you will need to
TVsNate: ahhh, a man and his hawg. and... his baby in a bottle. and some ghosts.
shadowxviii: Can you put things on the trike ?
Saulens181: There was a thing on the map
wench_tacular: @PharaohBender27 I don't remember, I was young and she was cool :-)
TheMerricat: I'm never not going to laugh when Sam yell his name out.
Lord_ZYRK: Time for some sick jumps PogChamp
nullvoid8: destination is "ludens fan"

shadowxviii: Someday Paul will manage to open the map without shouting :D
TheMerricat: Companion Cube?
nullvoid8: you *can* drive across ladders. I wouldn't recommend it
W_Livi: you got an email about that piece
serialtram: that is a companion cube
serialtram: well not companion
vellebastet: sykLaugh
serialtram: just weighted cube
surtur15: the companion cube is Benjamin or is it FOR Benjamin
serialtram: why not both?
TheMerricat: Ok, seriously game, did ANY of your porters mangage to deliver packages or did they just drop them all as soon as they got out of the building?
LRRTwitter: @LRRMtG> Heads up to Arena mobile players, the In-App Purchases are considerably more expensive than they are on desktop, presumably to offset Apple and Google’s cut of IAP 🙃 || https://www.twitter.com/LRRMtG/status/1375515588068446211
TheMerricat: Well that sucks
Astra7525: we skyrim horse now
serialtram: oof
wench_tacular: it's no skyrim horse
W_Livi: the grade on that slope is ridiculous; I wouldn't expect a simple trike to manage it
TXC2: whoosie doodle
shadowxviii: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: time to Münchhausen our ride eh
wench_tacular: maybe it's a little steep
TehAmelie: Sam should have the stamina
X_modem: I didn't find the Ludens fan until hundreds of hours into the game LOL
shadowxviii: so this is basically Fallout, huh
Tom_Bruise: they're valuable collector's items, Paul
niccus: sure is keighley
nullvoid8: @x_modem I think I first delivered to them in the epilogue XD
TXC2: shadowxviii with A LOT less shooting, but yes
X_modem: I think he was the last prepper I met.
Orgmastron: Nendos?!? They really are valuable collectors items.
Astra7525: for free no less
TXC2: I also remember that Telus guy, 'cause that happened while a stream was on :p
TacitusVigil: Hmm, actually, I amend my earlier comment: This is basically The Postman combined with the Mandalorian. Kappa
Orgmastron: OMG it's Geoff Keighley
TheMerricat: Wierd.
serialtram: oh my
serialtram: i ship it
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
wench_tacular: you're being weird
TehAmelie: Nendoroid? seems like a Nedroid ripoff
lirazel64: Aged prosecco.
TacitusVigil: Is anyone making wine anymore? I imagine it's all vintage now.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Go ahead with the dicking around. That sounds more fun to watch than the story.
TheMerricat: We understand Paul. This game is obviously one where you could spend all year playing and not further the campaign if you wanted to :D
wench_tacular: menu thinks its your mother
shadowxviii: What people Paul ?
nullvoid8: they can, but I only if you travel too far away
serialtram: do you actually see other players? or do you just see the effects of them leaving signs etc?
Hexi_Lexi: hey all you wonderful, amazing, beautiful people who i love more than words can express!!!!!
TehAmelie: hiya

thetoastmonster: Stand and deliver!
TacitusVigil: I feel like we can't just stack away all our problems, Sam.
TehAmelie: i just noticed our companion cube xD
TheMerricat: The companion cube is a special delivery.
W_Livi: the cube needs to be actually Delivered
W_Livi: I think?
Thisbymaster: have you gotten to the "have other people play the game for you" point?
Meyari: Yeah the cube seems to be from the email we got about lost cargo
Astra7525: wasn't that the capital city delivery?
TehAmelie: Baton? is he a relay runner?
TacitusVigil: braven10PRISM
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun so this might count as a spoiler but it was advertised that the companion cubes are part of a special quest added to the PC version, you get a very special ... Valve oriented item if you deliver them all.
X_modem: You would abandon your friend the weighted companion cube... you monster!
CaptainSpam: SamCycle, awaaaaaaaaay!
wench_tacular: sure, you tell yourself that
shadowxviii: Pretty sure it said specifically companion cube
TehAmelie: a cube almost as important as life itself, i think i read
W_Livi: I thought I saw 'companion' in the name
CaptainSpam: Yeah, that's a heart in it, it's a companion cube.
leopard_wolf: what is this game? some kind of one man shipping company?
shadowxviii: Right there, in the name
TheMerricat: It's not a WEIGHTED companion cube
LRRTwitter: @LRRMtG> Deleted that tweet about IAP, realizing that I don’t have total confirmation. | It may just be down to exchange rates. | In Canada, iOS has the STX preorder bundle at $69.99CDN as opposed to $49.99USD on desktop, which is not in line with exchange rates, but typical for Canada 😞 || https://www.twitter.com/LRRMtG/status/1375519142795640832
nullvoid8: if you park on the lift, you can deliver straight from the bikes inventory
TXC2: leopard_wolf yeah kinda
Mkingston: I still can't get over the that you deliver a 27KG box of semen in this game.
TehAmelie: heh remember Glados going "congratulations, you incinerated the companion cube faster than any other subject on record"? it had a pretty short appearance in that short game
Astra7525: @nullvoid8 That sounds useful
TXC2: TehAmelie and there was fan "art" of it anyway :p
TehAmelie: hey, i wrote a fanfic about it
Mkingston: More games should have commentary
nullvoid8: it's a very "elevator mirror" solution
Sky_Kast: how's it going ooh I lost my sub hmm
Alephred: Hooray, my favourite LRR thing.
Sky_Kast: makes sense though 😅
Astra7525: of course
TXC2: they went to far the other direction with the cube
serialtram: portal is such an amazingly iconic game
Mkingston: speaking of valve
Juliamon: Now we can be a NERD
CaptainSpam: Gordon Freeman's glasses. Not... quite what I would've expected, but...
shadowxviii: Deliver companion cube, get Gordon Freeman's glasses
Sky_Kast: yeah I wish valve would make more games like that
lirazel64: Sam I Am.
TehAmelie: i wish Valve would make more games lrrBEEJ
TheMerricat: @CaptainSpam theres actually more cubes out there, you get more items as you deliver more of them.
shadowxviii: Ok lady. Is rain fine ?
TacitusVigil: Oh, it's one of those 80s monsters...
TacitusVigil: A Gooney
Alephred: @TehAmelie How soon we forget Dota Autochess. Probably for the best.
LordZarano: Yeah, people would use the cube to get up the stairs and then leave it and try to get past the energy ball like a timing puzzle. Had to make them keep the cube as a shield somehow
Astra7525: ah, the order is two containers perhaps?
shadowxviii: The bike doesn't have as much strength as Sam :D
PsychoI3oy: it does that, you'll be fine when you take them off the bike
W_Livi: containers on the bike are not In Your Possession unless you're riding
nullvoid8: it's poor UI, they're on the bike
X_modem: Their on your bike
shadowxviii: Let's get sidetracked
TehAmelie: the Portal commentary track is really very enlightening. i remember most of it talking about what the game does to lead the player in ways that completely failed to work on me
Alephred: The Team Fortress 2 commentary track was also great.
Astra7525: don't get got by the MULEs
shadowxviii: Nice bridge
W_Livi: does the Run button work while you're biking?
TheAinMAP: Hi-ho Silver!
negentropic subscribed with Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, negentropic! (Today's storm count: 14)
Astra7525: @shadowxviii probably meant as a ramp
TheMerricat: Valve's commentaries in their games were awesome, in case people aren't aware Firewatch also got a dev commentary mode after it was released.
TXC2: humans in general don't look up
serialtram: run over the mules Kappa
Juliamon: Speaking of game commentary, I'm disappointed the Switch version of Superliminal lacks it.
Mkingston: dat soundtrack tho
electric_claire: There's nothing interesting up, everything cool is down
LordZarano: A lot of the "Ratman" graphiiti in Portal was just arrows pointing up
Tom_Bruise: just drive past some visibly arcing electricity? sure
Mkingston: some copyrighted music
TacitusVigil: There's no classic rock stations, huh?
leopard_wolf: there's a lot of stuff up, for various definitions of up and stuff
aceofroses_: Hey my first Death Stranding stream, hello Paul hope youre doing well
BusTed: Doop.
wench_tacular: that'll do it
twistedlock23: this is a cool song
shadowxviii: Do either is charges real fast, or you aren't using a lot of juice
W_Livi: Copyright issues aside, I love the soundtrack on this game
Sogheim: lrrHEART lrrPAUL
SpacePotato01: they should add another wheel. Or several.
wench_tacular: nah, it'll never catch on
TheMerricat: Should I be pissed that LRR has so many folk with smooth dulcet voices?
twistedlock23: @W_Livi same
TehAmelie: wheels are cool but my favorite of the six simple machines is the pulley
shadowxviii: Time to build a bridge
lemmel: We should really look into this, "the wheel".
KV1NN4: I keep thinking the baby is coo-ing along tot he song
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat I don't know - what's the reason to get pissed? Jealousy? A since of inequitable voice distribution?
BusTed: The places we'll go.
PharaohBender27: *sense of
wench_tacular: revolutionary
aceofroses_: so much food on this ubereats driver
TXC2: 4 wheels? blaspheme
TehAmelie: wait, our original bike had four wheels. we're just climbing back up
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 In ability to avoid being lulled to sleep :P
shadowxviii: damn you 1 foot ledge !
wench_tacular: sick
GDwarf: I like that our bike is leaving footprints
Wicker_Guide: Mood
Mkingston: I can empathize with Sam since I use a mobility scooter to get to work. damn curbs.
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Well then yes, because that will increase your blood pressure, which will keep you awake Kappa
shadowxviii: you still have 20 minutes on that delivery, could take a quick break, have a snack
PsychoI3oy: you can drive in
Astra7525: You can take the bike inside
electric_claire: Inside maybe?
Saulens181: I think you can drive it inot the elevator
Alephred: I believe it also charges inside.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun you may have missed it but when you get close enough to the buildings you switch from battery power to using their power grid for the bike
Astra7525: This is still America, of course you can drive-in :D
serialtram: does being on the power grid also charge the batteries?
Sogheim: so vehicles are set and forget
Sogheim: wow you're jangly today.
shadowxviii: I hope you get to keep the cargo that was on it
Wicker_Guide: game said it would go to private locker
TheMerricat: in your private locker
Lord_ZYRK: It gets automatically moved to private storage
Alephred: "Why do you have a crate of tardigrades in your locker?"
TheMerricat: lol
W_Livi: For what it's worth, the system also lets you Deliver containers that are at your feet; they don't need to be on your back or in your hands
shadowxviii: Are they paying you in music tracks ?
TXC2: maybe it's only newly dead people ?
Wicker_Guide: apparently yes
shadowxviii: oooooh, hat
Lord_ZYRK: I'm assuming it has something to due with chiral exposure prior to death
Wicker_Guide: would help explain the apparent "apocalypse"
lirazel64: All the museums where the mummies are stored... well, it wasn't pretty.
serialtram: lol
Lord_ZYRK: to do*
TacitusVigil: Our brand!
TheMerricat: A _branded_ hat, so you can make sure everyone know you work for Bridges!
TehAmelie: i guess now you can eat your hat
negentropic: Music tracks AND hats? They're spoiling you.
n_mandrag: "I helped saving humanity and all I got was this lousy hat"
shadowxviii: Mama ?
TXC2: "swaggering about in a garish new hat he seemed to say 'Look at me rex banner, I have a new hat.'"
Alahmnat: that seems... counter-intuitive given how less populated the western US is...
Astra7525: Have we actually ever MET mama?
shadowxviii: You know, the more you say Die-Hardman, it still doesn't make it sound normal. It still sounds ridiculous.
TehAmelie: people would migrate to areas where there are fewer dead people in this world
GDwarf: I mean, shadowxviii, we're Sam Porter Bridges, a Bridges porter, so...
n_mandrag: at what point will he explain why he is always wearing an incredibly silly skullmask ?
Sogheim: I think it's just fashion
TehAmelie: come to think, the map we have seen of Bridges' city network they have them every evenly spaced across continetial US
Wicker_Guide: It's been implied the skullmask is related to his repatriation, so stream one theory was that its hiding facial scars
TehAmelie: *very
shadowxviii: Are we going to Florida ?
GDwarf: I don't think that's water, I think that's a crater
W_Livi: "We took your blood away, so that we could slowly put it back into you"
GDwarf: "If you're using a blood-draining weapon"
Lord_ZYRK: Nobody makes me unbleed my own blood
Alephred: Yep, you can shoot your blood out of guns.
shadowxviii: It's for on the go sna~ I mean transfusion
TehAmelie: blood may be more healthy to drink than all that Monster
GDwarf: "Hematic grenade", eesh
Alephred: Also, blood bags can be used to heal yourself.
niccus: not to be confused with hepatic grenade
wench_tacular: well if they go wrong, there will be more of our blood to go around
TXC2: so does the BT explode if it dies?
TXC2: :p
n_mandrag: because why construct a grenade that is already filled with blood ?!
TehAmelie: reminds me of the hemapathologist in Scrubs
GDwarf: So, these aren't pre-filled grenades, we're *actively loading them with our blood in the field*.
LordZarano: @W_Livi You joke, but that is litterally what blood doping in sports is
shadowxviii: ok, but why is our blood a good BT repelant ?
W_Livi: huh... TIL
Robot_Bones: excellent question, no more questions
Alephred: Specifically, Sam's blood is a good anti-BT weapon.
Alephred: Also his bathwater.
TehAmelie: clearly we are the Chosen One
n_mandrag: @shadowxviii sam is just a generally toxic person. Hence why everyone just meets him via hologram :p
serialtram: i love how ridiculous the backpack gets in this game
shadowxviii: SamWakesUpCounter++
HundreydAundre: Wut the-? how are their two of you, emulator?
wench_tacular: refreshing
GDwarf: We must have a heck of a crick in our neck
TXC2: Keeps us young
TehAmelie: i hope we get some absolute unit of a backpack like some screenshots i have seen
Tom_Bruise: well he's gonna need the protein supplements. Blood should be good for that
Alephred: "We stole some of your blood while you were asleep."
Juliamon: Can we just replace our blood with Monster? Seems more efficient.
satyropodobny: thank you for giving yourself your blood
TXC2: I wonder if a healthy person get a blood transfusion every day would good or would kill them ? :p
shadowxviii: Piss grenades and blood grenades
x0den: i think sam just asked you to take a shower
Invitare: Jarate
wench_tacular: so toileting gets a privacy screen, but showering doesn't?
Wicker_Guide: @TXC2
n_mandrag: Ex Grenade No2 might be a clusterbomb then..
Mkingston: guess what the Number 2 has in it
wench_tacular: what, are they 12?
Wicker_Guide: ugh, was going to say its probably at worst on par with pregnancy

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, celebgurth! (Today's storm count: 15)
TheMerricat: Just wait till we get to #4 nades chat....
Mkingston: yes
TXC2: Wicker_Guide hmm, interesting
Solid_Fuel: oh shit
HundreydAundre: So, he's a "prisoner with employment benefits" bit here?
wench_tacular: fling your poop at them
Tom_Bruise: Sooo we're gonna throw our pee around to fight of ghosts?
shadowxviii: spit grenades ?
TehAmelie: all we need is paper bags
niccus: monster! we make your pee toxic
TacitusVigil: Drink Monster. Pee. Make grenades. Repeat.
shadowxviii: humor grenades ?
TehAmelie: and a lighter
CaptainSpam: Good LORD how much Monster does Sam drink?
Lord_ZYRK: How else would you propose we fight ghosts?
satyropodobny: return to monkee as engineering principle
Alephred: We need that urine. Chug it all.
TehAmelie: yes i have to remember that
Mkingston: Death Stranding, a game where Norman Reedus throws his pee and poop at ghosts whist delivering a 27kg box of semen.
azureHaights: I mean, if it works for sniper
Tom_Bruise: Don't tap the glass, it sounds like shotguns going off!
PharaohBender27: "Tired, huh?" And suddenly I feel called out :p
TXC2: Mkingston IT'S ART! Kappa
X_modem: That man downtown was right all along.
Wicker_Guide: @Mkingston while listening to the murmuring of the stilborn baby strapped to his chest
TehAmelie: should that go in !quote or !advice?
TacitusVigil: Oh hey Mads.
TehAmelie: "Remember, if anyone asks why you're throwing your pee around, it's to fight ghosts"
TheMerricat: BTW chat we do find out why Die Hardmann wears a mask, eventually.
shadowxviii: Moon !
HundreydAundre: Yes pls? soap I can figure out why I'm seeing two feeds of the same stream on my end.
wench_tacular: spaaaaace
Tom_Bruise: Why is Dads Mikkelsen teaching a baby astronomy?
Karmegeddon: Teach me daddy
Lord_ZYRK: BB is go to moon?
shadowxviii: BB, we will put you on a rocket and send you to the Moon
Lithobraker: Oh no it's scientist Mads Mickelson
TacitusVigil: @Tom_Bruise Because he's a great dad!
GDwarf: Teaching them history before they understand language is an interesting choice, to be sure
Invitare: To the moon!
Alephred: I like to think his name is to be 'The Hardman', and that's just the name in German.
wench_tacular: or where ever a package is needed
Tom_Bruise: A baby is not gonna get a good solid grasp of Astronomy. Start with, like, shapes 'n shit
Hexi_Lexi: but ONLY the moon :p
TacitusVigil: The one place uncorrupted by BTS.....SPACE!
Mkingston: Special Edition BB needed for the Moonbase.
X_modem: Mads is a huge honeymooners fan.
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!
PharaohBender27: We're going to end up on the moon at some point, aren't we? :p
n_mandrag: Kinda hard to learn physics if your having to struggle with object permanence
Hexi_Lexi: i adore how Paul still just has the Alpha Flight banner in his background. it makes me happy :)
Scy_Anide: Mads is just a fan of learn on hard mode.
TehAmelie: hmm what does chat think this says? i can provide a translation but i'm sure you'll be funnier https://i.imgur.com/tfIHUEZ.jpg
Sogheim: have to head back to work. have fun, y'all. good to see you, Paul.
Alephred: "Nobody cared who I was until I put on the mask."
Wicker_Guide: @TehAmelie Right cow: "Is that the new mobile feed trough?" Left cow: "Just help me get this - I mean yes, absolutely"
Wicker_Guide: @Alephred Right cow, responding: "Who are you again?"
TehAmelie: hehe
LoadingReadyRun: @Hexi_Lexi How dare you! That is the Dawn Guard banner!
Alephred: Ah, Dong Guard.
Hexi_Lexi: @LoadingReadyRun youre 100% right, and i feel bad
TehAmelie: "Honk honk, your uber has arrived." "Oleg, what the lrrEFF ?"
PharaohBender27: OOOOOOOHHH, @Hexi_Lexi done stepped in it! :D
serialtram: dawn dawn dawn
lirazel64: @tehamelie Unfortunately, I read Russian...
TXC2: and we're back
Hexi_Lexi: im a tired bean whos doing their best
TheAinMAP: katesAir
TXC2: loooong looooong trip
PharaohBender27: @Hexi_Lexi It's OK. katesHug
LordZarano: "Oh no my head's stuck" "That's what you get for russian"
Invitare: I'm not sure the Post Office appreciates people dumping things in their post boxes
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun online postboxes are connected to the network and let you access shared storage. Nothing you probably care about.
Wicker_Guide: So wait, I missed last stream, is that massive pile of boxes our "empty" state now?
Alephred: You can store your poop in postboxes! I'm sure they love that too.
noahbarto subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 17 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, noahbarto! (Today's storm count: 16)
Wicker_Guide: like, how much of what he's wearing is currently-undelivered cargo?
TehAmelie: what if. . .Sam himself is an undelivered parcel?
Alephred: When you have no cargo, you're visibly not carrying anything, @Wicker_Guide
TheMerricat: What @Wicker_Guide is asking is how much of what's hanging off Sam our equipment and how much of it is mission critical items.
Alephred: But he will likely not ever be carrying nothing.
Wicker_Guide: specifically I'm boggling at the realization that basically all of it is mission gear and not delivery payloads
wench_tacular: why would you tempt fate like that?!
Alephred: You can choose not to carry around extra grenades and shoes and blood bags, but it's not likely.
TXC2: "and that was the last we ever saw of the motorcycle..."
serialtram: look at your map and solve the travelling salesperson
TehAmelie: anyone ever soloed around in Planetside and found themselves carrying a light fighter plane's cargo's worth of junk everywhere?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Agreed.
keroan0: Delivery simulator, yes please
wench_tacular: that would be cool
Didero: Isn't that Euro/American Truck Simulator?
TXC2: isn't that just Euro truck?
electric_claire: Do the grenades really need their own boxes?
Didero: Also, good evening!
TXC2: Hello Didero welcome
Wicker_Guide: euro-truck offroading I guess
Wicker_Guide: gabyHi
TheMerricat: Did someone just yell back to us?
serialtram: echo
TXC2: TheMerricat no, it was echo
Mordin_Solus_Sings: A Kojima-game with less Kojiima in it has always been a bit of a wish.
TehAmelie: everyone now remembers the LRR Echo sketch
Alahmnat: falling on your head like a memory?
Wicker_Guide: "falling on your head like a new emotion"
serialtram: oh yay, ghost time
Aenir798: They hecked up your corpse disposal truck at the beginning
serialtram: but this time on a trike
HundreydAundre: Okay, cool. much bettered.
HundreydAundre: Newb Byke!
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Gun it!
shadowxviii: Ghosts too slow
Tom_Bruise: Oh no! The ghosts hate bikers! Throw your pee, quick!
e_bloc: sekiro
Styxseus: Just think of them as invisible roadblocks
shadowxviii: Is the scanner waving goodbye to the ghosts ?
TehAmelie: the ghosts seem highly territorial. surprised someone hasn't made a map of areas you could just go around
Didero: Paul, I love that you still have the Desert Bus banner behind you
Alahmnat: the scanner personality is kind of cute, tbh
CaptainSpam: Paul is always representing for Dawn Guard.
Scy_Anide: Yes, that is an option you can disable, or at least set so it only plays the first time.
shadowxviii: Desert Bus never stops
TehAmelie: it rides forever in our hearts, shiny and yellow
GoryHamJar: Go go Package Paul!
Wicker_Guide: my inner backpacker cries at this setup...
serialtram: i watched desert bus done quick again the other day, good fun
shadowxviii: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: a messenger
TXC2: !findquote message
LRRbot: Quote #4146: "We sent a message, and that message was a butt dial." —Cameron [2017-04-06]
wench_tacular: we're hunting wabbits
Wicker_Guide: !findquote quiet
LRRbot: Quote #4408: "Quiet you, I'm sneaking!" —Paul, While firing machine gun [2017-10-19]
shadowxviii: Now we are the wild pokemon
Wicker_Guide: or, being hunted by MULEs
shadowxviii: awkward time to pause, Twitch
Wicker_Guide: huh, had to fit in the MGS somehow I suppose
e_bloc: the annoying thing about killing mules is then you have to incinerate them
shadowxviii: Sam is a pro boxer
e_bloc: you'd think they could give you a flamethrower or something
PharaohBender27: @e_bloc But that's why we're just knocking them out
Tom_Bruise: so it's this easy to punch up the marauders?
shadowxviii: How effective are your piss grenades on these guys ?
e_bloc: yeah but when they give you other weapons later if you accidentally kill one it becomes a whole ordeal
Tom_Bruise: How are they a threat?
Alephred: They can incapacitate you and steal all your precious cargo.
Alephred: Including mission cargo.
wench_tacular: b*stards
Tom_Bruise: then we just punch 'em
shadowxviii: Take everything !
serialtram: deliver the cargo
e_bloc: I love container repair spray
shadowxviii: We can carry it, I'm sure :D
Wicker_Guide: you can't be everywhere, and this game seems to stick to protagonist-centered-causality
TheMerricat: Did they break it or did you just drop it?
serialtram: "Special Machine"
Wicker_Guide: take what you can, then come back and beat them up for the rest?
shadowxviii: oh, Special Machine ?
Alephred: They also become more of a threat as the game goes on.
serialtram: nice
e_bloc: is special machine just like a press drill
wench_tacular: nice
Orgmastron: Nice
TehAmelie: i see we can play Jenga mode, if we should want
shadowxviii: stuff you dropped
e_bloc: the workers comp insurance for this job must be astronomical
Alahmnat: I don't want to think about how awful the VO sessions for this game were for Reedus, given all the grunting and groaning he's doing
Alephred: Your eyes are bigger than your back!
Wicker_Guide: I think we'be hit the Jackie Chan threshold @e_bloc where no one will cover us
TehAmelie: it's jiggling!
TXC2: that looks super unsecure :p
serialtram: the correct use for jiggle physics
e_bloc: @Wicker_Guide I guess being able to come back to life at will probably helps a lot
Alahmnat: Paul.
Didero: !punfoul
Drea713: D:
Orgmastron: Booo
TehAmelie: the final form of cargo pants
Wicker_Guide: lrrWOW
wench_tacular: b'dum tsh
e_bloc: oh no
shadowxviii: Paul ....
Lord_ZYRK: Cargoman
e_bloc: I hope this makes the highlight reel
Hexi_Lexi: boo!!!
azureHaights: Cargo Thorax
Wicker_Guide: Cargo man, Cargo man, carrying cargo around the land
Wicker_Guide: Look out, here comes the cargo man
Alahmnat: this seems safe
wench_tacular: clip it, thats the ticket
TehAmelie: we WOULD have some serious armor if someone came at us with a sword, at least
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!)
shadowxviii: This is going to be an interesting drive
wench_tacular: bridge collapses
TehAmelie: i want there to be a load level where the bike just crumbles when you sit on it
x0den: is there stuff that doesn't need to be carried physically? i remember you had like 4 ladders at one point and you didn't actually carry them, but had them in inventory.
e_bloc: driving around looking like the Ever Given over here
TheMerricat: there was metal in the camp....
PsychoI3oy: x0den, they were carried, as collapsed cubes
RvLeshrac subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 21 months!
RvLeshrac: 21 months? That's almost a year.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, RvLeshrac! (Today's storm count: 17)
Alephred: Mules postboxes are a renewable resource.
TehAmelie: it's not quite nanomachine ladders, but sort of that area
e_bloc: I'd do it
Mordin_Solus_Sings: x0den, aren't those the things on this arms?
e_bloc: that really wasn't so bad
letfireraindown: That went better than expected
Didero: That can't have been good for your suspension. Or your back
Wicker_Guide: or your knees
TXC2: rather anticlimactic really :p
Alephred: Or your groin.
e_bloc: the newest kind of last mile problem
x0den: @Mordin_Solus_Sings when he actually did carry a ladder at one point it looked like a ladder so I THINK no.
Wicker_Guide: I do kind of wonder if Sam ever ends up with the Destiny Guardian dilemma i.e. "huh, I have [minor nuisance injury] I better kill myself and repatriate to heal"
x0den: @PsychoI3oy can he do that with other stuff?
shadowxviii: Who ordered...hum... stuff
e_bloc: I think my favorite part of this game is when you unlock zip lines
Bionull: For all the realism in this game, it really underestimates how hard it'd be to get any specific thing from those boxes.
TehAmelie: if this was Control, the Board about now would be congratulating your ingenuity/commitment to ladder/bridge/web building
TheMerricat: @x0den when you have the ladder in your tool belt it is extended, but the ones you kept in your backpack were just suitcases.
PsychoI3oy: x0den, stuff is all stuff, it's all in boxes on his back/arms/legs
Alahmnat: @Wicker_Guide I suspect that dilemma is harder to go in on when dying also creates city-sized craters
Tom_Bruise: nostalgia for the bureaucracy must be real
W_Livi: "I am confident that these documents are fine"
wench_tacular: just like mother used to make
Wicker_Guide: @Alahmnat oh that applies to him as well? yep, fair enough
shadowxviii: You're so good at Misc
TehAmelie: hey, we can excel at something besides Miscellaneous
x0den: @TheMerricat @PsychoI3oy alright. thank you
Tom_Bruise: Was that document the script to Paul Blart or something? Can't have been that special otherwise?
Wicker_Guide: @Tom_Bruise original print Fruits Basket manga :P
TehAmelie: this poster https://i.imgur.com/i7Qpcm1.png
MAPBoardgames: Hi friends!
TXC2: hello MAPBoardgames welcome
TehAmelie: hiya
e_bloc: congratulations, here's a picture of your dead mother who you incinerated
Wicker_Guide: I mean, we were explicitly told not to
shadowxviii: Can we rename all Knot city to Nut city ?
Didero: Time to fabricate a bike trailer? :p
Alahmnat: pull your weight, motorcycle
Wicker_Guide: to be fair to the bike, it sounds like its struggling to pull just Sam+equipment
Wicker_Guide: poor engine gabyThump
TehAmelie: i hope at some point we lecture hooligans spraypainting "[city name] Nazi-ty" somewhere
e_bloc: well at least someone was nice enough to drop a BT marker
CaptainSpam: ReedusMobile... AWAY!
shadowxviii: no ! not the dinosaur models !
wench_tacular: you ruined a dino!
dylan16807: nooo ;-;
e_bloc: what a helicopter parent
dylan16807: hold L1 then dpad down, I think
TheMerricat: "Hold down on L1 to switch to first person view. Press down on the D-PAD to look down at your BB. Press square to begin soothing your BB, using either motion controls to swing the controller up and down -- or not (which you can change in the settings)."
ashiok_nightmare_moose: rock your bbb
shadowxviii: don't shake babies
leopard_wolf: how are they getting air?
Aenir798: are you blocking some sort of bar?
Alahmnat: shaking is just impatient rocking
Wicker_Guide: well, this is... horrifying? adorable? adorifying?
TehAmelie: i think we need a new word for a parent who builds a web of connections all over their child's continent to force them into a life of relying on others. spider parent maybe?
TheMerricat: lol the sensor is acting like a mobile.
MAPBoardgames: Don't wake the baby. I prefer my babies shaken, not stirred.
shadowxviii: Alright, break's over, back to the job BB
ashiok_nightmare_moose: i like that the scanner acts like a mobile
Lord_ZYRK: I wish the scanner had a voice for things like the house AI in Invader Zim so we'd get stuff like "HURGH MOBILE PROTOCOL ACTIVATED"
Didero: You'd think games by now would design their UI in such a way that they leave room for a streamercam
TehAmelie: only games where they care about or even want people to stream them
TheMerricat: Kojima was famously anit-stream for this game, he didn't want folk being spoilt.
Wicker_Guide: even then, I'm sure its one of those things that's always on the lower end of the product backlog
Alahmnat: unfortunately game UI tends to work best in places where streamer heads tend to go for the same reason
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Well, I guess no one tell him about this PiF, then :p
TehAmelie: Kojima is getting torealize his unfiltered vision here, is he gonna care about streamers just when he's got out of the thumb of Konami's board of directors?
shadowxviii: You also don't want to restrict your UI space based on that
TXC2: "answered" :p
Alahmnat: ah, that's what BT means
PharaohBender27: Wait wait wait - Deadman, DieHardman, Heartman - is every nickname suffixed with "-man" in this setting?
Alahmnat: what an... underwhelming anser. lol
Alahmnat: *answer
shadowxviii: Who's talking ?
TehAmelie: on reflection, the majority of streamers, by numbers or influence, have their own fixed overlay and you could never accomodate all of them
Tom_Bruise: Nicholas Winding Refn I believe?
Scy_Anide: Just wait till you meet Cutman and MegaMan.
TheMerricat: @shadowxviii we haven't met them in person/holographm yet, but they are Heartman..
ashiok_nightmare_moose: new from Intel
ashiok_nightmare_moose: well old from Intel
ashiok_nightmare_moose: Ghost Canyon was only in a series of tiny computers
shadowxviii: That Beach is really making me think of a specific part of Bloodborne
Scy_Anide: He's your socially distanced parasocial friend, Heartman.
Wicker_Guide: @Alahmnat "So, good news, we've determined what happens after death" "Oh, is it an endless void? A courtly heaven-and-hell? A competitive Elysium?" "Nah, it's more like the most boring nostalgia version of stereotypical summer vacation"
Wicker_Guide: "Bad news, by the way, is that the vacationers want to come back"
TehAmelie: i just realized, why isn't all inter-city logistics handled by VTOLs that can go above any ghosts?
TheMerricat: @TehAmelie there is an ingame reason for no flying.
Wicker_Guide: probably the time-rain
wench_tacular: don't austin powers it
TehAmelie: dangit
PharaohBender27: katesScared
TXC2: uh oh
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Grenade?
shadowxviii: This looks bad

TXC2: yeap, I'm not sleeping tonight :p
Tom_Bruise: Turns out ghosts don't care about being peed on!
shadowxviii: "I do not care for your piss"
ashiok_nightmare_moose: only blood does damage
Lord_ZYRK: Kos. . . or as some say, Kosm. . .
Invitare: grant us eyes, grant us eyes
ashiok_nightmare_moose: just run out of the goop
shadowxviii: Majestic !
Invitare: as you once did for Vacuous Rom
NimrodXIV: something something high ground
Wicker_Guide: A Porter Is A Porter, even in a dream
ashiok_nightmare_moose: if you vacate the area it will end
wench_tacular: no, that's daleks
shadowxviii: Just go out, and deliver a few packages, it's for your own good.
Perchipy: Poor BB
Lord_ZYRK: The dead have returned with a dark porpoise
ashiok_nightmare_moose: either leave or fight
Tom_Bruise: Ok, I'm starting to fear the old blood
Alahmnat: I would run regardless, lol
TehAmelie: y'all ever try to fly to figure out if you're in a dream?

CloudyMrK: maybe an AK would help more than pee
Wicker_Guide: like, in the moment @TehAmelie
Wicker_Guide: ?
NeoSilverThorn: @TehAmelie On occasion.
wench_tacular: cool darks souls crossover
ashiok_nightmare_moose: it will chase you you need to leave the region

TXC2: if we hide, it will go away right?
TXC2: hello Anubis169
shadowxviii: Blood grenaqde maybe ?
Tom_Bruise: "Yep, that's me, you're probably wondering how I got here, hiding on this little ledge from that screeching targhost"
Alahmnat: ow
Lord_ZYRK: Anubis169 the dead are being fucky. Isn't this your jurisdiction to handle?
shadowxviii: It got scared, good job
MAPBoardgames: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: wait, we suck up one liter of blood for those grenades? that would take like, six weeks minimum to not kill you
Tom_Bruise: "It's only three rontgen, it's fine"
PharaohBender27: lrrFINE
Anubis169: Lord_ZYRK: There's a backlog, the latest Microsoft Excel screwed up the order of events
RvLeshrac: TehAmelie: I think that's total supply.
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: oh good
TXC2: !plan
LRRbot: What are those???
shadowxviii: look, in the end, it worked
Anubis169: good grief, how much load is your character under?
wench_tacular: that was a bad trip man
RvLeshrac: Not a lot.
RvLeshrac: He can handle more.
TehAmelie: what we need is an emergency jetpack. maybe 50 kg of fuel? should be no problem
RvLeshrac: Suck it up, Sam.
r2gamer2: Paul and Death Stranding, best combo
MAPBoardgames: Are those fish on the ground?
Wicker_Guide: yep
wench_tacular: fortunately we packed spare shoes
TXC2: sure look like fish
Alephred: Yup. Washed up from the beach.
Anubis169: those -were- fish on the ground :P
shadowxviii: "Anti-BT weapons" well those could have helped a few minutes ago
Wicker_Guide: we tried them, didn't seem to do much :/
wench_tacular: good as new
Alephred: Your spray is damaged. Who sprays the spray?
Tom_Bruise: oeh, let's have a cookout!
W_Livi: I could go for some fish
PharaohBender27: I'd have second thoughts about eating that fish
TXC2: to bad it's Friday Kappa
shadowxviii: I Sam !
Wicker_Guide: do not eat the delicious death fish
wench_tacular: they brought dinner!
Officinalis: Time for a good old fashioned fish-fry.
wench_tacular: Sam I am
NimrodXIV: think of the smell
shadowxviii: Don't eat the BT fishes
TehAmelie: headcanon: in former Silicon Valley there's a small community of dudes secretly becoming the wealthiest people in the world by abusing timefall to like each other's stuff millions of times
W_Livi: love this song
Lord_ZYRK: Status: uhhh. . . good luck with that
wench_tacular: we live in blissful ignorance
Wicker_Guide: @TehAmelie alternate headcannon: there's a single, collapsed building in Nob Hill where the mummified corpses of the people trying to do that remain
TehAmelie: sounds likely
Didero: Man, this music makes this feel like a great calm trekking game
TXC2: "if you have been killed by ghosts, congrats, you're now a ghost."
Alephred: I think this game's music does so much to establish mood. Imagine this scene with a rockin' metal theme instead.
Lord_ZYRK: Needs more sick tricks
PharaohBender27: SingsNote The silent VOD that will result from this sooooong . . . SingsNote
Perchipy: Yeah the music is great in this game
wench_tacular: jlrrCooltunes
shadowxviii: I watch so many old vods that I forget sometimes these are live
Wicker_Guide: I don't have much interest in this game, but I do kind of want the soundtrack...
shadowxviii: and keep trying to pause them anyway
LordZarano: Why can't we take one of those trucks back there?
TheMerricat: So now that you've played this for a while and had your first 'real' BT event, how do you like the game Paul?
TehAmelie: i want a shrine to Jeff Bridges that looks like this
keroan0: So uhhh here's your delivery. Sure, it's glowing a bit but... ignore that
wench_tacular: we need to shower for sooo long
PsychoI3oy: you can make the delivery from a vehicle parked on the circle
Oghara: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out https://loadingreadyrun.com/live for an interactive schedule, or http://lrr.cc/schedule for a Google Calendar version.
TehAmelie: what an actor. just take The Dude next to Marshall Cogborn. . .
ashiok_nightmare_moose: dotn for get to reload weapons
Invitare: you're covered in eldritch goo
TXC2: Greasy
shadowxviii: Hope you don't mind otherworldly goo
TheMerricat: Ok so that said you were suppose to be able to deliver cargo on vehicles that are close to the terminal....
CloudyMrK: the black goo is a bonus
Invitare: but I thought the feet were filling boots
LordZarano: How many women have we seen in this game, apart from our mother and our love interest?
e_bloc: numbers go up!
Tom_Bruise: "That's some feat, you must've got some serious feet. Quite a feet of feats you've got"
Alephred: That's not our love interest, that's our adoptive sister.
Wicker_Guide: one or two I think @LordZarano
shadowxviii: Should work on that bridge link
wench_tacular: there was Mama
Wicker_Guide: @Alephred I am not so sure those are separate, sergeFriend
LordZarano: Ah, sister. Ok
wench_tacular: yeah, or some shit
serialtram: time for the floaty 2FA dongles again
cardinalwiggles: thats a powerful USB
cardinalwiggles: definitely a 3.0 usb
Alephred: No matter which way you plug them in, it's the wrong way up.
Anubis169: Paul: Saw an article a couple days ago... somebody's modified a USB-C connector and made it respond differently depending on which way up you put it in
Anubis169: lrrSPOOP
Wicker_Guide: worst part is its based on USB-C but somehow it STILL HAPPENS
Wicker_Guide: @Anubis169 lrrSPOOP
MAPBoardgames: USB are 4 dimensional plugs
e_bloc: yikes
shadowxviii: Igor's dead
Alephred: Victor and Igor Frank, *nudge nudge*
TXC2: ah, that's why this guy looks EXACTLY THE SAME
wench_tacular: bad news
RvLeshrac: That's a Mini-Ludens, they came with the Collector's Edition.
Alephred: Yeah, that's the mascot of Kojima Productions
wench_tacular: "lived" is a strong word
shadowxviii: Another hat ?
ashiok_nightmare_moose: pack hematic grenades
Lord_ZYRK: He had a coupon
Tom_Bruise: must be someone else's blood
TXC2: also how do they have our blood already?
W_Livi: they, uh, sent some up ahead of you?
PsychoI3oy: it transfuses as you're aiming
SK__Ren: They took samples of your bodily fluids [/Deadman]
e_bloc: you probably donated it a while ago and he's giving it back
wench_tacular: and how?
Alephred: They take it from you as you sleep, no joke.
PsychoI3oy: they have no blood until sam throws them
wench_tacular: nobody else is delivering
shadowxviii: Yeah, about the canal ....
MAPBoardgames: Your blood is like the cancer cells that wont die. everyone has them.
Invitare: but the waters are filled with ink horrs
Invitare: horrors
krypticcblue subscribed with Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, krypticcblue! (Today's storm count: 18)
wench_tacular: mixed messages here
shadowxviii: Did she say hole ? I definitely heard her talk about holes.
TXC2: really? united Cities of America?
serialtram: UCA = United Cities of America?
KV1NN4: he seems to have already made the first and several steps
TXC2: !holes
LRRbot: The Hole Story, with Nigel Fitzgerald Brouwer
Lord_ZYRK: I sure as hell wouldn't trust anyone who uses the phrase "make us whole again"
Wicker_Guide: UCA is United Cities of America, yes, that was confirmed in first stream
Fanklok: I'm starting to think that this Bridges organization is using Sam's mom's death as a means to further their own agendas and might not actually care about America
TheMerricat: "The United Cities of America (UCA), also known as America, is a fledgling nation-state located in North America. Its capital is Capital Knot City. The UCA initially found itself fractured, and was intent on connecting its territories to the Chiral Network."
Invitare: a port where it never rains? Seems sus
Invitare: vent them into space
wench_tacular: maybe shower
MAPBoardgames: Dude! shower first!
shadowxviii: increase the Same Wakes up counter
PharaohBender27: Heck, I need to shower for a whole weekend! Kappa
Tom_Bruise: "I need a shower, the strongest soap you've got, and a helmet for future use"
Wicker_Guide: @Fanklok "The Bridges Family IS America. It's interests are America's interests" - Die-Hardman, probably
keroan0: Ugh, sleeping in your grime. I know that feeling
x0den: shower and reboot your bb
wench_tacular: shower until Monday, should be enough
