Hexi_Lexi: hey all you wonderful, amazing, beautiful, incredible people who i love infinitely more than words can express!!!
BusTed: It opened into another apartment.
NimrodXIV: it was creepy anyway
PharaohBender27: Sorry I was busy clipping - where is this huge hole?
TXC2: PharaohBender27 behind a bathroom mirror
Izandai: wtf
PixelArtDragon: "It was made for me!"
TXC2: PharaohBender27 this was a series of Tiktok videos
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Oh, OK
Izandai: jesus fuck
keroan0: Bonus party apartment
PharaohBender27: Kind of surprised no one was already squatting there
TXC2: yeah that Apartment is in New york, you would not believe how many of those there are
Izandai: PrideLaugh
GamesAndInk: Apparently those holes are put there by construction crews for getting in and out? I assume they're normally sealed up afterward.
keroan0: Yep, famously someone was murdered in Chicago through one of those holes
MAPBoardgames: Use the second apartment to store your weed.
GamesAndInk: Get the materials to completely hide the hallway door, knock down the walls, have a free double-sized apartment.

TXC2: Switch proliferation, Switchliferation
PixelArtDragon: It's the "we have Switch at home"
Nigouki: isn't it technically the Wii U form factor?
RockPusher: We've had desktops, we've had laptops - now introducing, The Switch'
constablecrab: Everything in nature tends to evolve into crabs or the Switch.
LordZarano: The Switch is basically a GBA but bigger
Chipton: The Switch form factor is ideal, but the game support is lacking
GamesAndInk: GameGear
TXC2: there's a Crapshot in this, where LRR show's of their version, and it's just a tree branch
PixelArtDragon: Playstation Vita
TXC2: PixelArtDragon oooh Careful now, LRRchat is the only place in the world were more then one person owns a vita Kappa
constablecrab: @TXC2 Yeah, "switch" meant something entirely different growing up.
KyubiStormMage: they make sound chips
PixelArtDragon: @TXC2 Oh don't worry, I don't have one, I'm just aware of its existence
couldntpickausername: I mean, the switch is generally just a tablet with buttons, it's not surprising companies wanna imitate
LordZarano: You could get controller-cases for tablets before the Switch was a thing
BusTed: smontch
PixelArtDragon: Game in Swatch
Izandai: That was actually a decent Doofinschmirtz impression.
Izandai: (or however you spell his name)
DeM0nFiRe: btw the switch wasn't even the first one to do it, android tablets with controllers built in already exist. The switch is successful because of Nintendo games, not because of the formfactor lol
couldntpickausername: frankly, gimme a windows switch and I'll load it up with the old games they refuse to port
LarkSachrosis: But Beej, *they're* not making money on the Switch lrrBEEJ
Chipton: Beej, I think people will go "Oh sweet, now I have a thing that feels like a Switch but runs my entire Steam Library"
EvilBadman: heather with a very joJo pose
Duetic: We have always been at war with Switch Pro rumours
accountmadeforants: Tencent won't give a shit about ripping things off. And Qualcomm is similarly unscrupulous (in different ways, up till now). So it's not super surprising for them to do these things.
Wicker_Guide: Switch Pro runs Half Life 3
Izandai: Do people dislike the non-mirrored joysticks? I thought that was better because for most games one thumb wants to be on buttons and the other wants to be on a stick and having one thumb lower than the other would be weird.
RockPusher: Mmmm, chips
accountmadeforants: The Tegra X1 was outdated by the time the Switch came out.
RockPusher: It's called 'lying'
Stoffern: Tensor cores? Is that a thing you make in Satisfactory?
MAPBoardgames: Tenser's Sampling Chips. 4th Level. Enchantment.
RockPusher: Oh, you need more pixels? I'll make those up for you. Genuine fake pixels!
iris_of_ether: Oh good lord, tensors
PixelArtDragon: What if we took matrix math, which GPUs excel at, and add another dimension?
TXC2: Nvida's real fake Pixels
LordZarano: So, the sort of things that Two Minute Papers shows
PixelArtDragon: Upscaling one pixel into four is very non-trivial though
TXC2: is rending 4 pixels easier then rending 1 and faking 3 is the question
LordZarano: What a time to be alive
RockPusher: Or you just make the download for the game come with the trained model for the game
Wicker_Guide: I mean, rendering 4 is definitely easier, but there's possibly a benefit if the same process is faking those 3 across many games
Ivalenz_: Machine learning does the upscaling. The upscaling can look better than native while using less power.
Cyberegg: you would need to patch a 560p output
PixelArtDragon: The more generic the algorithm is, the more memory it's going to need for its normal running (vs a specialized algorithm)
bytecaster: As far as I can tell, the networks still need to be trained, but Nvidias does that for you and ships the training data with the driver.
TracteurBlinde: The network is trained, just not individually per games like v1
PixelArtDragon: Heh, moving bits
PixelArtDragon: Because computers
PharaohBender27: Cheer300 Someone said something about moving bits?
LordZarano: How is it gonna work for pixelated indie games though? Switch has tons of them
bytecaster: @TracteurBlinde While I might be not completely up on this, but their own marketing material still sounds like they train for every game, but just once on their own machines.
Izandai: I wouldn't be too surprised if the Switch is replaced and the Switch Lite sticks around as the cheaper, less powerful model.
Chipton: The New Nintendo 3DS didn't get rid of the Nintendo 3DS or 2DS until the Switch supplanted the entire line
Izandai: And being both a handheld and a home console is part of the premium you're paying for with the "Pro".
TXC2: remember when Console specs didn't change, and that was part of the point? fun times :p
Izandai: PrideLaugh
CoalChisel: Can we just address the fact that they are pushing the upgraded systems with a sever lack of chipsets?
Izandai: @TXC2 Wasn't the PSX basically this though? A more powerful PS1?
MAPBoardgames: Don't we all have an uncle who works at Nintendo? Can't we ask them?
EvilBadman: @Txc2 when console generations were 5 years?
TXC2: Izandai I thought it was just smaller, but good point anyway
Izandai: I actually don't know, that's just the impression I've gotten.
TXC2: EvilBadman I guess they felt longer :p

EvilBadman: Arena Mobile's got higher in app purchase prices + can't redeem codes currently, so 🙃
TracteurBlinde: @bytecaster For version one it was per game, trained by nvidia. And I'm sure there's still a datacenter of machines churning away and training across lots of games. I don't know if there is a single set of weights they distribute, I guess I wouldn't be surprised if photorealistic games have one set of weights vs a more non-photorealistic game, but it isn't per game anymore
Izandai: PSX was just also the the dev codename for the Playstation.
Wolfstrike_NL: so..rocket league air hocky?
RockPusher: EvilBadman the platform cut has to be included on the mobile platforms
MAPBoardgames: I can't wait for the MTG euphemisms for pooping.

TXC2: Heather Low key spiting fire there
PharaohBender27: Almost like people jumping off of a ship . . .
Wicker_Guide: @MAPBoardgames crafting wildcards
MAPBoardgames: Sending to the graveyard? Too obvious?
dusty_cupboards: that is generally how boards work actually
floki4242: rats off the sinking ship
RockPusher: Some boards do have a percentage rollover term - but this feels like everyone ejecting maybe to cash out stock interests?
TXC2: almost like stocks aren;t real :p
Wicker_Guide: that are understandable but nonsensical
xantos69: @TXC2 Oh, they are very real. But that doesn't mean their value is based in reality.
PharaohBender27: Yeah, I know that there's turnover for titled officers on boards of directors, but that high a percentage of the board period leaving at once seems odd
DoodlestheGreat: They're getting out while the getting is good. Taking their stock options and cashing them in while Wall Street is completely faschmalliad.
RockPusher: take a chance that the stock price is still wrong by the time you are allowed to divest
DeM0nFiRe: Imagine putting that on your resume "Served on board of directors to oversee company's value increase by 1000%" LUL
Hexi_Lexi: i honestly kinda feel bad for regi (and related folks) for having to deal with all this gamestop stuff
TheMerricat: what @rockpusher said. being on the board of a company means you can't cash out your options except under special circumstances.
Wicker_Guide: Frankly if I was on the board I'd be worried about getting sued after the fact when the bubble bursts and people are looking for a way to make their lost money back
lirazel64: It's truly weird. There's a huge temptation for the company to sell stock, since people want it so much, but then what is the fiduciary responsibility?
PharaohBender27: @DoodlestheGreat Faschmalliad?
Izandai: They are contractually obligated to maximize profit.
MAPBoardgames: This is why 99% of public companies are run like shit.
PharaohBender27: ^
xantos69: Yea, but if you want a company to be about something other than money...You can literally NEVER take it public.
Wicker_Guide: Milton Friedman cries in his grave gabyThump (note: good)
iris_of_ether: 100%
Izandai: Which means it's *really really hard* to do something that's, you know, morally right or good for society if it would decrease profit.
PharaohBender27: Dictatorship of the Shareholders, if you will
TheMerricat: just a reminder to chat you are required by law to protect the assets of the company that does not equal maximizing profit
Izandai: Apologies. Point stands.
Gnyrinn: They must be able to guarantee that the stock prices will go sideways, at least a bit. Otherwise, time has stopped.
Izandai: That would be AMAZING.
Wicker_Guide: You're required by law to do a lot of things that aren't "maximizing revenue per unit cost", but the shareholder-leadership model IS "the people who have the company's best interest in mind are those whose only skin in the game is return on investment"
couldntpickausername: Boardy McBoardface
brightshadow: "meet the new chairman of the board, u/peepeepoopoo"
TXC2: why does that sound like a VERY bad TV show?

GapFiller: ah Patch Notes the evergreen gift that always gives

Gnyrinn: I'm pretty sure that Paul's talking about surströmming.
PharaohBender27: You have to wonder, who first even came up with that food preparation method?
MAPBoardgames: Delicacy is a French word for : I dare you to eat it.
RaklarLS: lutefisk was a good offering in dungeons of dredmore
PixelArtDragon: "If you leave it too long it turns into soap" is not something you really want to hear about food
GapFiller: as food prep goes lye is surely second only to letting it rot
TXC2: PharaohBender27 someone who food a fish in a bog, eat it out of hunger, and didn't die

GapFiller: I like it at least
TheMerricat: fermented soy beans
diamondmx: It was available at a hotel's breakfast buffet when I was in Tokyo.
Qvdv: I'm not entirely sure, but are we conflating Lutefisk and Surströmming?
RaklarLS: to paraphrase Dylan Moran, it's LOCAL delicacy for a reason.
TXC2: or How Koreans eat Kimchi
Perchipy: I eat it
RockPusher looks up from his vegemite on toast
diamondmx: So yeah, people actually eat natto.
Wicker_Guide: I still like Anthony Bourdain's comment about a rotted-bean paste "This seems like it would be a great food for people with little or not access to spices"
LordZarano: "Local delicacy" is just codewords for "something to freak out the tourists"

PharaohBender27: @LordZarano That or "Food we used to eat when you were thankful to have anything to eat even if it tasted like garbage" :p
TXC2: 3500? one for every 100,000 Americans :p
LordZarano: @PharaohBender27 Why not both?
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 phunny tangent to that theres a theory that what yr saying basically explains Sichuan cuisine
GapFiller: 'if we bombard it w/ all the strongest spices we can eat anything'
PharaohBender27: @LordZarano True. I'm reminded of when my grandparents and mother where in Germany in the late 1950s/early 1960s, and my grandmother made the mistake of ordering "Schlachtplatte," which turned out to be "All the assorted meat products we didn't use for other dishes"

TXC2: Fortnite is the Arizona State of videogames Kappa
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Oh SNAP
MAPBoardgames: Graham was right, I didn't know his last name until watching Checkpoint
accountmadeforants: If your character can be squeezed into Fortnite's PC's hitbox, it qualifies.
professor_a14: I wanna play as jeff average guy.
EvilBadman: Maybe they're doing Shaun of the Dead, beej
cotp_dom: Alright, which LRR character do we get into Fortnight?
ImmoralEthicist: I mean, I could've figured out his last name from his wife's last name, but I wouldn't have known it immediately
GapFiller: mentioned this before the stream started but Ethan Winters gives me big Ben Folds Rockin The Suburbs vibes
DoodlestheGreat: Cosplay of Evan Winters is just using a marker on one arm.

Earthenone: so im scared
Hexi_Lexi: it was Generations Ultimate that was the port
Oghara: @TheMerricat ye he did one for the winter season but I haven't seen one for spring yet

DoodlestheGreat: They're looking for a buyer.
TXC2: "buy me out daddy"
Wicker_Guide: has been looking to sell out
ButButTheJesus: soon to be Microsoft Voicechat for Gamers
EightBitDreams: The rumor is $10 billion, MS only paid $2 billion for the best selling video game of all time!
storiers: Discord was never really built as a company meant to last on its own for long
PixelArtDragon: I'm available to for purchase if the meetings involve free cookies
iris_of_ether: You're not that far off lol

GapFiller: well a free lunch at least
quietcat: I would like to subscribe to Heather's business method
LordZarano: ~whichcord?
DoodlestheGreat: @eightbitdreams, and $7.5 bil for a huge game studio.
Wicker_Guide: hasn't stopped MS before

RandomTrivia: Microsoft acquiring a competitor? Who would have thought it?! lrrBEEJ
mitomanox: dat hair
the_silent_holographer: ms meeting cookies were nice, in the before time
GapFiller: it figures theres not that many degrees of difference between corporate free lunch wrangling and full on ligging
aerobeing: How long before Discord account mandatory to be linked with Microsoft account?
PharaohBender27: @aerobeing O_o
RandomTrivia: @aerobeing Like 3 weeks
EightBitDreams: Oh yeah, and Xbox Live = Xbox Network now, they changed the name for some reason
RandomTrivia: *IF* they bought Discord
EvilBadman: @EightBitDreams Live is the SERVICE, network is the network
mitomanox: hooray! Discord user interface will now change every half hour like Teams lrrHAM
aerobeing: @EightBitDreams Next: Disney buys MS. Internet becomes Network.
LegionofLashes: I think its more discord going to people offering their company rather than microsoft looking to buy them
Wicker_Guide: @aerobeing immediate, then removed after backlash for 6 months, then all accounts are quietly merged together in a way that compromises an uncomfortable amount of user data
TheMerricat: we already here is not a single one of the 30 or so servers that I'm signed up for on discord are for gam
TheMerricat: game streaming
Stoffern: Well its better than skype in my experience
EvilBadman: Party chat is pretty bad on the xbox, tbh
Stoffern: but its not a high bar
badpandabear: Discord fills a niche, but it's not the only voice/video/text system out there
aerobeing: @Wicker_Guide Everyone, who disagrees, are deleted.
mitomanox: "the purchasing of an audience" < movie name
Wicker_Guide: nah, they're just asked where they'd rather go lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
rf232: linkedin?
Wicker_Guide: "Slack didn't agree to being purchased. In an unrelated note, here's Teams"
niccus: time to go back to trillian
Zhedor: teams is just Bus, when you have to be on multiple ones
Saunabath: Discord video streaming has never worked for me
TheMerricat: icq
Perchipy: God no
EvilBadman: Salesforce bought Slack @Wicker_Guide
mitomanox: IRC
Wicker_Guide: @EvilBadman lrrSPOOP
badpandabear: My theory is that every social media network is trying to recreate usenet

OrkaOrkinus: sergeScopeCreep
Oghara: @LoadingReadyRun Beej any idea when you get to the next anime season roundup?
Izandai: For those not in the know: The Harvest Moon brand is owned by a different company from the one that actually made the old Harvest Moon games you know about (because Harvest Moon is just the english rebrand; they have a different name in Japan). Then those companies stopped working today, so the Harvest Moon games being made these days are being made by a different company, and the company that made the old Harvest Moon games are still making those games but they're called Story of Seasons now.
TXC2: PharaohBender27 you say that as if thousands of people didn't drown their sims :p
Metric_Furlong: the clue was in the name the whole time kappa
Metric_Furlong: * Kappa
Wicker_Guide: sergeJustRight
