Chat Transcript:

 7:00 PMjordan thompsonhey goobers

7:03 PMCyberjinhi guys

7:03 PMSuperMetalDave64yeah that was a fun time

7:05 PMSuperMetalDave64the game has a lot of content after you “beat” it, which is great

7:05 PMjordan thompsonmaybe you could do a sequel to the video were you talked about how every console before the Wii u had to use the tv, just make the next one catered to not being able to take the console on the go

7:07 PMjordan thompsondid you see Injustice 2 character pack 3 trailer

7:07 PMWarren LewisHeyo!

7:09 PMjordan thompsonyou could replay that demo for the umpteenth time

7:10 PMSuperMetalDave64612p

7:10 PMSuperMetalDave64with drops to 21fps

7:10 PMSuperMetalDave64in bigger battles for extended periods of time

7:11 PMTrilinkhey finally caught one of these live again

7:11 PMSuperMetalDave64Digital Foundry said the game runs below the lowest settings possible on PC, so it’s “lower than low” settings for Switch to get it to run.

7:11 PMSuperMetalDave64basically however

7:11 PMSuperMetalDave64in portable mode, it’s the best looking FPS game ever

7:12 PMSuperMetalDave64in docked mode that’s another story of course

7:13 PMjordan thompsonsorry just trying not to imagine a sentient gameboy crying in Andrews disapproval

7:14 PMjordan thompsonis it the lighting or did Zack dye his beard, it looks darker

7:15 PMScottyJayManThere’s a woman with light bulbs as sholders in Xeno 2 and it freaks me out

7:20 PMScottyJayManI’m worse. I have Doom on PS4 and I just bought it for Switch.

7:22 PMScottyJayManWedding dress for next event.

7:22 PMTrilinkurghh season passes. imagine buying a book and getting to the last chapter where it says you need a dlc/season pass to read the the epilogue and complete the book :/

7:23 PMjordan thompsondon’t give me ideas I’m a writer, jk

7:26 PMjordan thompsonScooby Doo and shaggy as a code name in the PC files why am I not surprised

7:26 PMScottyJayManTrue ninja turtles don’t have nostrils

7:27 PMjordan thompsonI know years ago there was leaks for a Scooby Doo Mortal Kombat crossover animated movie, the project must have been scrapped idk

7:27 PMLink ZeldoHello!

7:28 PMjordan thompsonsoul caliber 5 had ezio from assassin’s Creed

7:30 PMScottyJayManI’m waiting for the Battletoads

7:32 PMTrilinkNintendo dlc/expansion passes wouldn’t be so bad if they released Game of the year editions more consistently

7:38 PMScottyJayManThen they’ll release a Switch version with less features.

7:45 PMScottyJayManNew Star Wars for everything but video games. Excluding Battlefront 2

7:47 PMScottyJayManDisney will probably buy Netflix

7:49 PMScottyJayManAndrew that’s a pretty good New Zealand accent

7:53 PMScottyJayManDon’t worry, no American can do a Australian accent.

7:56 PMScottyJayManYour switch would of gone to sleep, so no lost of progress. Like putting your phone to sleep.

8:03 PMScottyJayManI would think Hummer would be more concerned with their product being associated with men with small………hands.

8:09 PMTrilinkdoes that mean Nintendo paid Mercedes to have their cars in Mario Kart 8? strange because they dont traditionally like paying third parties for their IP

8:16 PMTrilinkhave you guys played Pikmin? if I recall some of the ship parts you collect are real life products

8:16 PMTrilinkI always thought was pretty cool version of product placement

8:17 PMScottyJayManChino robo does have real products

8:17 PMScottyJayManSorry Chibi Robo

8:19 PMTrilinkif I remember, it was the Japanese version that has the product placements but the English versions removed these. but yeah it has been a decade since I played it lol :/

8:20 PMScottyJayManSeen any good Black Friday deals for Pro controllers yet?

8:24 PMScottyJayManI’d say if you can’t find one on sale, still pick one up. The Pro controller is the best controller hands down.

8:25 PMSuperMetalDave64same thing happened multiple times with me on the Joycons

8:25 PMSuperMetalDave64playing Mario

8:25 PMSuperMetalDave64a brief disconnect

8:25 PMSuperMetalDave64and then come back

8:27 PMShinkei DEIIt seems that the joycon issue is because the internal bluetooth antenna is weak, I got mine fixed and did not take long. But we must agree that a controller is supposed to work outside the box

8:27 PMShinkei DEIbut yeah, the pro-controller is really good. Shame it’s really expensive

8:27 PMShinkei DEII still prefer the PS4 controller

8:28 PMScottyJayManHey at least you can now use a GameCube controllers with the Wii U adapter!

8:29 PMShinkei DEIYup conductive foam.

8:30 PMTrilinkI think the only GOTY editions Nintendo has released in the past is New Super Mario/Luigi U foor Wii U and then the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe & Pokken Tournament DX ports for Switch :/

8:39 PMShinkei DEIIt does get good but you gotta play about 3 hours

8:39 PMTrilinkdo you think Nintendo will celebrate the Wii Us anniversary like they did with Metroids last anniversary? :p

8:39 PMAndrew EisenYes.
