Chat Transcript:

6:51 PME. Zachary KnightHello Everyone

6:59 PMRyotaikuHow’s Kiwami 2?

7:09 PMRyotaikuWhy did the chicken cross the road? To get the highest score!

7:22 PMCodeNameZhi

7:23 PMCodeNameZSorry for beeing late I was playing Crash on my Switch

7:29 PMCodeNameZYou wanna see and edit a mans junk?

7:31 PMCodeNameZYou know how many channels would get copyright strikes because they show a mans junk on channel?

7:32 PMCodeNameZI think the developer once says VVVVV is read as “weeeeee”

7:39 PMCodeNameZ“There is a new game” Really people are still making games

7:40 PMaddictedtochaosSorry I’m late, storms came through and knocked out power.

7:41 PMCodeNameZIn Brawlhalla there is a LGBT flag that can be set even as a taunt in game

7:42 PMaddictedtochaosI see where both sides are coming from.

7:42 PMA LeafIt’s really not a big deal. It’s no different than including the flag of the USSR

7:44 PMA Leafso should we ban terrorists in videogames?

7:45 PMA LeafThere are still marauding hordes of terrorist organizations in the world. Should be censor them from games like in CoD?

7:45 PMaddictedtochaosIn CoD you are fighting the terrorists though.

7:46 PMCodeNameZYea but we are talking about a game that have worst of the worst in one place if anything having a neo nazi tattoo would fit perfectly

7:47 PMScottyJayManIf they wanted realism, they should replace the Nazi symbol with “MAGA”

7:47 PMA LeafOh I didn’t know it was the player character. That’s a little more on the strange side.

7:51 PMCodeNameZBut are Nazis such a big deal in todays world? I mean when is the last big thing nazis did? There are so far a small group of people that cannot do much

7:51 PMAndrew EisenAre you kidding? What country do you live in?

7:51 PMA LeafYeah I agree that certain people like to exaggerate how big of a threat modern day nazis are.

7:52 PMA LeafI believe that many people who have nothing to do with fascism get labelled it too loosely today.

7:52 PMA LeafI live in Canada if that matters for some reason

7:54 PMScottyJayManI live in Australia and we just had a senator use the term “ Final Solution” in their speech to the senate. It’s a big problem.

7:55 PMScottyJayManYou’d have to wonder if Microsoft or Nintendo were in the same position sales wise if they would still allow cross play.

7:56 PMaddictedtochaosThe roles were reversed in previous gen. And Microsoft said no.

7:56 PMCodeNameZYou can play PS4 on a train with no problem you just need a mini TV and a portable power generatior

7:56 PMScottyJayManI can confirm if your account is Sony locked you can still cross play with Xbox Switch if you use the Sony account on a pc or mobile

8:00 PMScottyJayManSony. The same company who joked the you can use used games in their system.

8:01 PMScottyJayManThey still sell those.

8:03 PMCodeNameZI think it was made by Panasonic and even it got its own version of the GBA player

8:03 PMScottyJayManMade by Panasonic

8:05 PMScottyJayManIt’s funny to think that Nintendo never released a system even with optical drives that can play dvds by themselves

8:07 PMScottyJayManHaha now I’m thinking about Xbox 360 HD-DVD separate drive.

8:07 PMCodeNameZAnd when Wii U came out DVD was pretty much dead and digital was the new thing for movies

8:08 PMScottyJayManAnd everyone ripped on Apple for starting the trend.

8:08 PMCodeNameZDont movie it when it is on?

8:11 PMScottyJayManBeing critical of BOTW is not an issue. It’s when you’re critical of Dark Souls that you have to fear for your safety.

8:11 PMaddictedtochaosTreat Zelda like a choose your own adventure.

8:11 PMaddictedtochaosI use the pro controller exclusively.

8:13 PMCodeNameZI ordered the Pro Controller because of Crash, games like that needs a D-pad and so far I’m using a 8bitdo controller

8:13 PMaddictedtochaosThat is what fast travel is for.

8:14 PMCodeNameZWhen I use the Joycon I hold it like the Wii remote and nunchuck (no rails on)

8:15 PMco2Pacosame here Codename Z – allows me to sit super comfy

8:16 PMCodeNameZBack in the day in the prime of World of Warcraft, usually a quest goes like that. You go for 15 mins to the marked space, than spend 5 mins killing, than another 15 mins to the next place

8:17 PMaddictedtochaosThat is part of the point. The game doesn’t hold your hand. Basically it is just try not to die.

8:17 PMCodeNameZonly to pick up a thing and spend 25mins return to the starting point

8:17 PMco2Pacoyea, the game isn’t perfect, but all the criticism is what I enjoyed.

8:19 PMaddictedtochaosHave to use the cooking pot

8:19 PMco2Pacolol still funny rants

8:19 PMScottyJayManIt’s either this or Skyrim.

8:21 PMaddictedtochaosThey want you to figure it out for yourself. There are multiple ways to do most things.

8:21 PMco2Pacoyea wind waker sailing was a little too “real”

8:22 PMCodeNameZEven in the remake you can miss really easy the speed sail because it is a random item on the auction

8:22 PMScottyJayManJust overclock your Switch to speed up link!

8:23 PMSeakkennedI liked finding the tingle bottles from people in Windwaker but I hear you can’t do that anymore.

8:23 PMCodeNameZYou cannot collect it anymore because the tinglebottle was linked to miiverse and now miiverse is down

8:24 PMaddictedtochaosYou can make potions to speed him up.

8:26 PMCodeNameZUsually when a link is to slow you get a faster internet

8:27 PMSeakkennedDid you ever go to any of the mazes in breath of the Wild? Those were real cool.

8:28 PMaddictedtochaosGuardian Scout type III or IV are rough in shrines.

8:28 PMaddictedtochaosSome of them are multi room

8:30 PMco2Pacoyea those labyrinths look cool but to get through them, eesh!

8:31 PMaddictedtochaosNorth east corner of the map is one of the labryinths

8:32 PMaddictedtochaosComplete Rito divine beast to get Revalis gale it will make traversal so much easier.
