GapFiller: good evening lrrPAUL P lrrBEEEJ B lrrHEATHER H lrrHEART
DoodlestheGreat: Love the book, Heather.
PixelArtDragon: But are they smooth and satisfying?

rrtycoon2: I'm sweet and saucy.
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
PharaohBender27: @Earthenone Feel like there's a reference there I'm not getting :p

GapFiller: yr think its a wig or something
Arisa_Unohana: I am illuminated
LordZarano: I just discovered and have been on a binge of Laura K Buzz's youtube this week
Earthenone: PharaohBender27 it was an older one i guess, amazon prime did this whole thing about core gamers being aged 18-35 and Loving free 2 day shipping :)
PharaohBender27: @Earthenone Ahhh, that makes sense :D
DiscordianTokkan: "I know some authors that use subtext. They're all cowards" is one of the lines, IIRC
Orgmastron: "I know writers who use subtext and they're all cowards!"
TehAmelie: Dr Rick Dagless, MD
EvilBadman: Heather just want to know who to blame and how to hurt them for the line

Creideiki_SE: "Moist and meaty" sounds like a cat food brand with zero marketing budget.
BlueMechanic: trying to replicate Matt Berry's voice is hard. It's very distinctive
Metric_Furlong: clip in question
Arisa_Unohana: !badadvice
LRRbot: Split the party.

Drasvin: !findquote baby
LRRbot: Quote #1046: "I don't think babies are made by playing the violin." β€”Heather [2015-11-06]
Lord_Hosk: I don't think the death stranding connection is going to be why having a baby that lets you talk to ghosts would be weird Beej
PixelArtDragon: Video game news? On MY Chillpoint? It's more likely than you think!
GapFiller: eyyy Bonus Tangents
GapFiller: OH thats bad
RockPusher: Twice the Beej meme, no waiting!
MagicalAttackGecko: a meme so nice Beej posts it twice
Sibwow: beej is telling the story he gets to decide the topic
Wolfstrike_NL: that's a bug that Discord has had before
PixelArtDragon: Mute just Beej, make him have to liquid swords
constablecrab: New podcast: DISgruntled
beowuuf: ah, it's chillpoint cause you're giving thigns the cold shoulder? :p
RockPusher: Beej accidentally picked up Blaseball echoing
Orgmastron: It nor perfect system
Orgmastron: not*
LurkerSpine: uh... was that LRR slack?
MagicalAttackGecko: GHAAA SLACK
GapFiller: glad my usual policy of treating Discord as tho its radioactive is proving perfectly valid as always
PixelArtDragon: Wait, I don't have Slack open on this computer
Juliamon: Slack does love to do that
GapFiller: mmm adult content
accountmadeforants: Apple, much like its products, remains weird and capricious in an effort to appear clean.
PixelArtDragon: If they lower the boom on you, won't the boom be in the shot?
constablecrab: That is a hell of a mug.
PharaohBender27: My Mom knew someone who worked for Apple once. When he was laid off, he learned because security came and were all, "You need to leave now, and you aren't allowed to take anything with you."
GapFiller: it feels 10 yrs being a long time is one of those tings thats been particularly obscured by the Eternal Present age we're livin in
dylan16807: Discord announced a change a couple hours ago, now *most* NSFW servers will be accessible on iOS, and only ones "focused exclusively on pornographic content" will be hidden.
RockPusher: Apple still have to deal with credit card companies and they get to decide what can exist on the platform
RockPusher: See -- every other NSFW purge
PharaohBender27: Ah, the old "I know obscenity when I see it" strategy
GapFiller: PharaohBender27 tbf its not the worst strategy
GapFiller: it does work
Earthenone: quick, lets have the algorhythm define art!
GapFiller: usually
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Would work better than the algorithm
storiers: computers are just stupid people who don't require an income

jennyfixit: beej, my wife wants to know if you own a hairbrush
PharaohBender27: @Drasvin The issue is, as I've heard it described, that we humans "know more than we can tell." Computers don't have that ability.
Lord_Hosk: HANG ON! There are boobs on the internet! (runs off to the internet)
GapFiller: yeh despite advances in AI dev computers are still bad w/ ambiguity
accountmadeforants: I wanna say there is?
accountmadeforants: There's an "Explore Public Servers" button at the bottom of the servers list.

PharaohBender27: @LordZarano Because Twitter is more powerful
accountmadeforants: LordZarano Having NSFW stuff disabled by default, being decently large, and good luck.
GapFiller: right on the nail there Beej
accountmadeforants: Mostly the luck, honestly.
vip3rpil0t: Thank you so much for acknowledging what this is basically always leading towards <3
Talin06: they allow tinder
Earthenone: you have to go behind the shop and trade in your colored balls for the nudie apps
Lord_Hosk: But Tinder is exclusively a dating and relationship site (nudge nudge wink wink say no more)
PixelArtDragon: Tinder specifically has a no-nudes policy
Tehbeard: tweeting from apps is just a generic share though? or is it much more integrated upon the iFruits?
accountmadeforants: One reviewer just has to stumble on some NSFW content for the app to get banned.
LordZarano: "Horny on main" is a thing because a lot of tweeters have non-main "after dark" accounts too
PixelArtDragon: Wasn't it something like 20% of Tumblr?
BlueMechanic: Tumblr is pretty cool now. It's so unmarketable that it's not full of forced advertising and the adverts which are there are just weird and incomprehensible

RomanGoro: It's funny how if you go to youtube videos from four or five years ago, you find different annotations than you see today and the comments address each other by +User instead of however it looks now
beowuuf: the fact that some poeple have to rely on getting youtube to 'promote' them scares me
Boon_33: then we'd have 200 more videos about BELOPA, I don't see the issue.
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
Anubis169: Remember when LRR did a series of videos of you guys getting injured in funny ways? ...and it exploded overnight?
Anubis169: just as a joke
beowuuf: wouldn't it be funny to be on leno? :p
PharaohBender27: @Anubis169 Yeah, for CommodoreHustle, right?
accountmadeforants: Oh, that explains a lot, actually
Tehbeard: huh... I just thought the A/B testing subsystem was broken....
beowuuf: wasn't that where thingsonmyhead started?
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Yep, as I understand it
accountmadeforants: ArsTechnica does A/B testing for the first 15 minutes it's up.
DeM0nFiRe: ^
Anubis169: can I get a diff from this? :P
accountmadeforants: Then the most clicked headline becomes the proper headline.
beowuuf: can we have 1min 21s silence for thingsonmyhead :p
LordZarano: Project Viral
Nigouki: oh god so that's what was happening with the chainsaw robot sculpting video, it went through like 4 thumbnails in a week
YeetTheRich_: wtf
Anubis169: bahahahhahaha
beowuuf: wow
GapFiller: lrrWOW
NimrodXIV: woooow
PharaohBender27: So a thumbnail pinup
iris_of_ether: My start page on my phone frequently gives me advice columns, and I've seen the same article under like 3 different names on different days
Doomcomicguy: have you guys branched out into other video hosting yet? bitchute, lbry, odessy, daily motion, etc?
cyanMu42: That sounds like unapproved modification violating copyright.
Anubis169: I've seen that, there was a weird medieval weaponry vid where the item in the thumbnail wasn't ANYWHERE in the video..
misteline: That is horrendous
NotCainNorAbel: maybe there is a minigame where you stream on twitch
Anubis169: but that worked, remember the auto-generated CGI videos for kids that youtube got slammed for?
SK__Ren: The directive to follow was step 1
SK__Ren: :P
Lord_Hosk: I see that a lot with news articles were the picture in a tweet or on a article aggregator wont be in the article and im like "but I want to see whats going on in that photo" so I reverse image search it and the image is from 6 years ago at a different unrelated event and article.
YeetTheRich_: 5th step is for premium members
Boon_33: still less dumb than the videos that are speach-to-text of popular reddit comments.
Anubis169: i mean LinusTechTips has grown in popularity a -lot- in the past couple of months... he's doing something right :D
KV1NN4: youtube's (new?current?) algorithm can abandon you if they notice a drop in your views (ie, if you do something new that your audience might not explore
iris_of_ether: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
Lord_Hosk: Gee Anubis I wonder what Linus Media is doing different in the past two months
Metric_Furlong: there's two many of you to be tiny Kappa
ArcOfTheConclave: this is the ful time job for multiple people
Metric_Furlong: *too
Anubis169: You've been around for over a decade... you're successful by virtue of the fact that you're still around and stable :D
RockPusher: We're higher quality!
UnboundLaconicness: We have valuable eyeballs
jessieimproved: y'all are definitely quality over quantity and that is why I'm here
Metric_Furlong: Paul 'definitely not pandering' Saunders
accountmadeforants: πŸ‘€ views in quality
jessieimproved: the incredibly high sub count on Twitch is really telling too
Lord_Hosk: Have you considered... Selling Graphics cards at MSRP? I bet that would jump your views ;)
jessieimproved: subs over total viewers
Anubis169 spittakes
Anubis169: dammit hosk :D
Metric_Furlong: jessieimproved to be far, a lot of that is individual people throwing out gift subs :p
Laogeodritt: Back when Heather was still catching up on 2-4+ weeks of VOD backlog several years back, I remember how much the GIANT dumps would take over my YouTube subscriptions. XD
YeetTheRich_: how about a llr shitpost channel i bet wheeler would be on board
Metric_Furlong: Lord_Hosk sell at MSRP? in this economy?!
GapFiller: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
TehAmelie: trying to write a rulebook for becoming famous is sort of like if you're living in the age of tall ships and writing about how to discover new lands
PharaohBender27: katesParty
Laogeodritt: (Not that I'm complaining, I was very voluntarily subscribed to LoadingReadyLive's channel. But it was still a very remarkable flood each time.)
RockPusher: Stronks! tqsStonks
Boon_33: Buy Beej's new book on the LRR store, "how to make a hundred dollars" only $99.99, supplies are limited.
GapFiller: dont yr just HATE it when the ONE box doesnt match anything and just completely messes up yr carefully arranged shelf
Anubis169: uhhhhhh
GapFiller: seems legit
DeM0nFiRe: Is that also why it said the price was 11,000 Circle?
red_shoes_jeff: I wanna play THAT game!
Anubis169: tshirts really do grow on trees ya know
Metric_Furlong: clothes really do grow on trees
CAKHost: Wait a minute! You can't get clothes from trees!
Anubis169: it's a Clothes Tree :D
beowuuf: if clothes are worn in the forest, do they make waves in the fashion world?
iris_of_ether: benginButt ?
CAKHost: Though you can plant bells that you can use to get clothes so I guess???
accountmadeforants: "Furniture is just clothes for your house" is a solid piece of wisdom.
nyperold: Well... some drop fruit, which can be made into clothes (and other stuff).
Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants I thought that was wallpaper?
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong That's the underwear.
Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants I thought that was paint

CAKHost: Tom Nook is a fan boy
AmzRigh: smol raid amzrigSave

PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, raiders!
Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants I thought that was stucco?

Metric_Furlong: accountmadeforants I thought that was awnings?
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Anubis169: Quantic Entanglement?
GapFiller: took the words right outta my mouth there Heather
accountmadeforants: Metric_Furlong Awnings are like nail or hair extensions.
CAKHost: AKA, I'm on base, you can't get me argument.
Metric_Furlong: David "what if Blade Runner had sympathetic replicants?" Cage
nyperold: Yeah, K.K. swears too much in his songs. Swears like "omi" and "naowe" and such.
SirShaken: David "I don't know how to make female characters sympathetic so I'm gonna put them in a situation with sexual violence" Cage
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong Ah yes. The Talking Simulator of Detroit: Become Human was a heck of a thing
Anubis169: when you've got access to a deepfakes rig at a games company... don't use it for that -_-

Anubis169: Heather just patted Beej on the shoulder through Paul's ears lrrSPOOP
accountmadeforants: Molyneux was incredibly ambitious and basically unfiltered, and the worst thing he did was tell journalists about every dumb idea he's ever had or heard. And those ideas aren't even 1% as bad as the shit Cage comes up with.

LurkerSpine: there are different barrels, but it does look exactly like one of the barrels in the game
CAKHost: Slighly pulsing barrel

asddsa28: how is it spelled
accountmadeforants: The only thing I'm missing from DekuDeals is that I can't just see all deals in the EU at once, I have to manually swap between countries.
asddsa28: dam you google
aerobeing: Forget about it for a few years.
Wolfstrike_NL: 15 dollars!?!
Angnor33: I have absolutely done this.
NonUniqueGuy: This thing on your wishlist is on sale. "I have no clue what this is"
LordZarano: So it's or but for nintendo?
Lord_Hosk: And then it goes on sale for $9.99 and im like "What game was that again?"
Sky_Kast: yeah
aerobeing: isthereanydeals is good for that where you can set a price you want it at and the vendors you want it from.
aerobeing: And it will email you when it gets there.
KeytarCat: I'd get D2 full purchase for $15, but I also don't MMO, so
Skeletonman1100: Game backlog is what stops me from buying a number of games.
accountmadeforants: LordZarano Yup, big thing over isthereanydeals is that it tracks physical stuff also, which is really important considering it's a Nintendo thing.
RockPusher: gabyLul
Sky_Kast: the only one I liked was There is no game wrong dimension
Sky_Kast: not gonna buy it again but man it's a great game
AshBurnem: Wasn't there some controversy about the dev of Fez though?
KeytarCat: I played the first section of it and burned out because controls hard
AmzRigh: I love Fez's style
AmzRigh: The controversy is that some people thought the creator of Fez was kind of a jerk, he got bullied out of the industry for it.
Metric_Furlong: AshBurnem he used to get into arguments on social media back in the day, is about the extent of it
battlebreeches: Beej's hair is at maximum capcity
battlebreeches: 100% frizz
Earthenone: i used to play a TMNT arcade game at the local laundromat when i was a small child
AmzRigh: Turtles in Time was one of those rare cases of the console port being superior to the arcade version
iris_of_ether: It's a neat concept
KeytarCat: Oh, The Longest Johns showed me that! every month or so, the world changes and you can explore more
ArcOfTheConclave: If you make the shade comfortable and happy, time moves faster.
Sky_Kast: yeah collecting things will turn the speed up
misteline: I zoned out, what game are we talking about?
accountmadeforants: So what game was this?
KeytarCat: The Longing
Metric_Furlong: The Longing
accountmadeforants: Thanks KeytarCat and Metric_Furlong
KeytarCat: ^^
misteline: yes thanks
Brozard: He was following an oscillating fan
nyperold: I've played the demo.
KeytarCat: As an autistic man, oscillating is comfortable
nyperold: It looked interesting.
KeytarCat: Demo was very JRPG and very good example of it
accountmadeforants: Cris Tales is fantastic. They also had a demo they were gonna remove after a certain event, and then just kept up anyway.
accountmadeforants: I ended up taking about a screenshot a second because it kept stunning me with pretty and/or funny things.
Brozard: @KeytarCat Does that include rhythmically shifting your weight from one leg to the other?
PharaohBender27: katesLol
KeytarCat: @Brozard ...maybe. definitely
nyperold: I liked walking around and seeing how the gimmick affected what you saw.
Brozard: hmmm
Earthenone: so another mail system simulator for paul to play?
KV1NN4: wait whats this kiwi game actually called?>
AshBurnem: Kiwi is the opposite of Goose Game, then?
PharaohBender27: *Had* to get a Fortnite thing in? What is this, 2018? Kappa
AmzRigh: I missed what they were talking about, but Kiwi Game makes me think New Zealand Story
creamonmyface2: πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
GapFiller: ofc the real 1.17 news is that James is Back on the Wagon
GapFiller: beginning o May
LunarJade: KeyWe
accountmadeforants: The screenshots and gifs I made of Cris Tales when the demo came out:
AshBurnem: The problem is that they are trying to increase the total build height. It is proving more difficult, so they are delaying that bit.
Skeletonman1100: It's more cliffs are part 1 and caves are part 2.
RockPusher: jlrrPunch lrrCOW
GapFiller: yeh its pretty much doubling the heights
PharaohBender27: lrrJAMES can fall further!
Wolfstrike_NL: I think Serge and James already talked about the challange being on older versions of the game
TehAmelie: getting close to integrating Cubic Chunks in the base game. . .
beowuuf: way deeper, grimstone harder to mine
Earthenone: im sure the highlight reel will tell me all i need to know about the new update
Joalni: Where is special correspondent James? We need his hot takes!
Metric_Furlong: any multiplayer game can be a racing game if you try hard enough
Earthenone: not just horsepower. skyrim horsepower
nyperold: So it's Big Rigs Over the Road Racing.
Metric_Furlong: hell, so can single-player games, if you consider speedruns
Lord_Hosk: Every spider has a measurable 15 spider power
LordZarano: BrickExperiments made a Lego car drive up a sheer wall
PharaohBender27: lrrIAN Glasses! lrrKATHLEEN Glasses!
Wolfstrike_NL: So are 30% of the charracters in WoW just gonna get bad eyesight, and needing to wear glasses?
NotCainNorAbel: just noticed: is the chillpoint date always the checkpoint date?
PharaohBender27: lrrPAUL Glasses!
Lord_Hosk: Or maybe you want to protect your eyes from blood and visera
LordZarano: They did cheat by putting double-sided tape on the tyres though
AshBurnem: I prefer to have glasses on my avatars.
TracteurBlinde: goggles > glasses
KeytarCat: tf is that game
nyperold: Depends, but I put glasses on my Animal Crossing character, and she looks nothing like me. Starting with being a "she".
Lord_Hosk: Cosplay online
AshBurnem: Paul didn't mention that Conan O'Brian is the cosplayer's friend.

Mai_Andra: Oh, I love the new blue color. I'm really tempted to get one, but I don't want to have to deal with the drama of having two switches with only one account... >.>
Earthenone: clearly they are testing the blue market for switch pro
Wolfstrike_NL: The aliens are on the way!
GapFiller: thats the worst part is how right yr are Beej

LordZarano: Poe's Law: "Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is utterly impossible to parody ... in such a way that someone won't mistake for the genuine article."
GapFiller: sound reasoning there Reggie
wildpeaks: wow

Brozard: Link to Reggie absolutely dumpstering Chris Kohler
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf No, I got what you meant :)
GapFiller: Brozard lrrWOW
beowuuf: :)
KeytarCat: I want someone to race 4:33 of Silence with mario
KeytarCat: or some speedrun
KeytarCat: because an nes is a fair instrument for it
accountmadeforants: The TAS run also does things that are physically impossible on a controller.
NightWingMistHawk: As someone who is practicing a glitchless run of SMB1, the game is optimized to an extent that it's honestly overwhelming to even considering racing for the top time
LordZarano: TAS can use Left+Right, so it's a little difficult to compare
accountmadeforants: Most SMB runs are actual hardware, but emulators are basically perfect at this point so largely accepted. (They get an asterisk on, but are still the same category.)
KeytarCat: Note: TASes are built on emulator, but hardware verification doesn't require original controller, just the System (for a lot of things I've seen)
Amentur: Unless you put your controller on a heating pad and let it cook for a certain amount of time
KeytarCat: "So imagine you're at a bus stop..."
accountmadeforants: "The other important thing to remember in Super Mario Bros. speedrunning is the so-called "frame rule." This vagary of Super Mario Bros. programming adds a delay to the "blackout" at the end of a level so it lines up with a 21-frame timer. Think of it like a bus that leaves for the next level every 21 frames (0.35 seconds); even if you get to the stop at the end of the level a little earlier, you may end up waiting for the same bus and not saving any time." from Ars.
fubargames: Why do I have strong opinions about that clearly being a modded controller? I'm not a speedrunner.
LordZarano: hammers, Bowser throws hammers in SMB1
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah it's really fascinating
GapFiller: that is Ridonkulous
KeytarCat: Deterministic, but invisible

KeytarCat: Timesplitter was just better

Jeezy56: the story I read said the account he posted the codes with got banned on discord so he couldn't even remember them
Jeezy56: and then the next day the story was updated with turns out the password was "banana"
Lafajet: Wait, is Timesplitters even owned by the same company as Homefront?
KeytarCat: IT DID make Homefront look bad :P
TheMerricat: Homefront made Homefront look bad
AshBurnem: ^
CaptainSpam: Surprised it didn't get datamined before now, actually.
Brozard: I feel like it would be much easier in terms of game dev to include the whole game but limit access to only the first two levels than to try and extricate the first two levels only.
KeytarCat: The first Homefront was decent but...graphic. Second was bad open world
TheMerricat: Homefront wasn't popular enough to be datamined. IT really did NOT do well.

Tiber727: Enter the upside down world!
Gizmoloid: And sometimes the developer just lie to you. I remember hearing a story about some kid accidentally doing a fatality in original Mortal Kombat during some promo/test event and since nobody saw it nobody believed him and the dev denied anything special happened.
drawnbinary: it's 6:45am Saturday here and I completely forgot that timezones exist so Friday Night Paper Fight threw me for a second
Tiber727: Actually, in a music game, the upside down world would be making you play through all the songs again backwards.
