Chat Transcript:

7:00 PMotritzuEvenin’ Andrew

7:02 PMotritzuI’d heard there are upgrades in the main game for those issues

7:03 PMotritzuDid you get Super Mario Party?

7:04 PMEvoh Lurkswhat is the worst game you ever played.

7:05 PMotritzuThat shadow over your left shoulder looks like a woman standing behind you. I know it’s your stuffed animal display.

7:05 PMotritzuI loved that one. It was a blast.

7:06 PMEvoh Lurkslol

7:06 PMTartToothI tried that game too. Wasn’t a fan.

7:06 PMTartToothI just don’t think it holds up today

7:07 PMEvoh Lurkssame

7:15 PMO-Contexsialayo

7:20 PMTartToothAndrew, do you think there will ever be a time in your life when you no longer have the capacity to care about video games?

7:21 PMTartToothI’m beginning to feel lethargic about games. Maybe I’m burned out from years of playing games and consuming gaming-related content on a daily basis. It’s a bummer because it used to be a huge passion.

7:21 PMmatthew wilsonhave you started neir lol. hope your enjoying fist of the north star

7:24 PMTartToothSorry to hear that. I love your singing voice. Hope you are able to find an avenue for pursuing music again

7:25 PMmatthew wilsonwont happen, there will always be cd project red + indies

7:26 PMmatthew wilsonon a side note, cd project red must have a good deal with warner bros b/c they are distabuting the physical version in the us

7:29 PMLakster37you’ll like it

7:30 PMTartToothAs a huge Zelda fan, BOTW is a dream come true. i couldn’t put it down.

7:34 PMmatthew wilsonwhat do you think of the harry poter game leak that happened this week?

7:34 PMotritzuMax your stamina and it becomes much less of an issue.

7:34 PMTartToothwhat Otritzu said^

7:35 PMotritzuThere’s also the Ancient Saddle that allows you to summon your horse from forever away.

7:35 PMotritzuThere’s roughly 100 of each puzzle types.

7:36 PMLakster37don’t worry Andrew, there’s 900 korok seeds. You haven’t seen even a small fraction of those puzzles 😛

7:36 PMaddictedtochaosla-nay-ru

7:36 PMotritzuThat’s not bad.

7:37 PMaddictedtochaossorry i’m late was watching a metallica concert.

7:38 PMaddictedtochaosdon’t try to do everything in an area all at once feel free to wander and explore

7:38 PMLakster37Koroks dont seem that creative to me

7:39 PMLakster37Even if they doubled the total number of puzzle types though, with 900 total they’ll still be repeated probably 8 times

7:40 PMaddictedtochaosyou don’t need anywhere near all 900 koroks to max your inventory.

7:42 PMaddictedtochaosconsidering the condition link was in at the start of the game his stamina is where it should be. he had been mostly dead for 100 years

7:42 PMLakster37how many sheer cliffs can you climb, Andrew?

7:43 PMLakster37(Ancient saddles is from the DLC Andrew…)

7:46 PMaddictedtochaosI assume you have not been to Rito Village yet

7:48 PMotritzuincluding the hardest korok in the game too.

7:50 PMotritzuabout half, yes.

7:51 PMaddictedtochaosyou don’t even need that many to have an inventory large enough to complete the game I only had around 60 or so

7:51 PMO-ContexsialBy the power of Grayskull

7:51 PMO-ContexsialThe tank of my E-cigarette leaks all over my hand!

7:51 PMO-ContexsialI mean. I have the power

7:53 PMO-ContexsialActually, I’ve missed a bit, what is this discussion about? I MAY be able to add to it.

7:53 PMaddictedtochaoszelda

7:53 PMLakster37andrew claiming about botw

7:54 PMotritzuLink seems to be power trained and not stamina trained.

7:54 PMLakster37complaining*

7:55 PMaddictedtochaosget revali’s gale from the divine beast in rito village it will making climbing so much easier

7:55 PMotritzuThe motorcycle is F’n hard to get.

7:55 PMO-Contexsialyeah, Video Games that are TOO realistic are quite boring. I mean, I wouldn’t want to play a game where I would need to get a license to carry a round a weapon as in a sword.

7:56 PMaddictedtochaosyes that is exactly what it does

7:56 PMLakster37Rock Band/GH singing as a sim you like?

7:57 PMO-ContexsialI didn’t mean to offend or anything. If people like realism.: All the power to them. I just like my Fantasy and heroism

7:58 PMO-ContexsialFor once zelda actually did something before Link did something. Isn’t that great for PC-Culture?

7:58 PMaddictedtochaosmore like Zelda failed and link died because of it

7:58 PMLakster37yes Link failed, no he didn’t have divine beasts (though you CAN beat ganon w/o the divine beasts)

7:59 PMotritzuLink wasn’t expecting the betrayal that caused him to fail.

7:59 PMO-ContexsialLink always wins, even if he fails. He is afterall the hero of the godess of Hyrule or somethin… My Zelda Lore is quite rusty. But Link never fails. Obviously

7:59 PMaddictedtochaosI would have preferred that you played the content in the flashbacks rather than just watch them

7:59 PMotritzuHe also killed something like 80% of the guardians the first time.

8:00 PMaddictedtochaosyeah but the whole point of rocksmith is to teach you to play

8:01 PMaddictedtochaos2

8:02 PMaddictedtochaoshelps of you already know the song

8:04 PMO-ContexsialI DO however like Basketball IRL 😮

8:05 PMO-ContexsialI also like how you pronounce the stupid Youtube Usermame I made up while High as crap

8:05 PMmatthew wilsoncontinue she failed to master her powers until after link is hurt

8:07 PMLakster37link doesn’t fail, he just takes a break for a hundred years…

8:07 PMA LeafHyrule Historia has been rectonned now

8:07 PMA LeafA couple games have been swapped in placement in a newer book, forget the name

8:07 PMA Leafswapped awakening and another game or something I forget

8:07 PMA Leafand made MM / Termina into a dream instead of a real place

8:09 PMLakster37really? I hadn’t heard that part of it…

8:09 PMA Leafyeah hold on lemme see if I can find the book name

8:09 PMotritzuHyrule Historia.

8:09 PMA LeafLoZ Encyclopedia I think

8:09 PMA Leafnope, Historia is retconned and old now, as I said

8:10 PMA Leafthe newer book changes the timeline

8:10 PMotritzuHuh?

8:10 PMA LeafIt’s a new book in the trilogy so far

8:11 PMA Leafit’s called The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia

8:11 PMA Leafcame out after Arts & Artifacts

8:11 PMaddictedtochaoswould you be able to do the vocals on Beatles rockband?

8:12 PMotritzuLink’s Awakening was already a dream. They didn’t need to do it twice.

8:12 PMO-ContexsialNO! Don’t turn the one Zelda game with a intersting Story into a dream! So unsatisfying!

8:12 PMA Leafno kidding

8:12 PMLakster37yeah, I was just looking at it. it says that it’s skull kid’s dream/imagination because he was sad that Link left – Link came and helped him get over it, and it disappears when Link leaves

8:12 PMO-Contexsialan*

8:12 PMA LeafTo be honest though it suits Majora’s Mask to make it a dream

8:13 PMA Leafso many references to OoT and the same characters, even if it was really due to it being made with the same assets

8:13 PMaddictedtochaosfigure you would be more likely to know those songs

8:13 PMA LeafWould make sense for it to all be in Link’s subconscious.

8:13 PMA LeafEspecially with the big nose on the moon! Ganondorf, anyone?

8:15 PMO-ContexsialI feel like Karaoke with Andrew should be a thing, and I’ve only been here for like two streams.

8:17 PMaddictedtochaoswas referring to the beatles

8:18 PMaddictedtochaosknow that song from “White Christmas”

8:20 PMO-ContexsialWith a deep voice such as yours you might be great at singing Elvis songs. lol

8:21 PMaddictedtochaosbeatles or stones? prefer the stones

8:22 PMotritzuSounds like something you’d have to hear in person.

8:23 PMotritzueither way. Recordings lose something in translation.

8:23 PMO-ContexsialSpeaking of music by the way, this might have nothing to do with Vidjo gaemZ but what would you consider your favorite Musical artists?

8:24 PMaddictedtochaosthe intro to gimmie shelter is musical perfection

8:26 PMaddictedtochaosor jeff lynne

8:27 PMaddictedtochaosrolling stones

8:28 PMO-ContexsialOnly been here for two streams and I’ve already managed to make the streamer feel old. God, I love myself.

8:29 PMotritzuYou aren’t the only one.

8:30 PMaddictedtochaosI’ll be 37 next week

8:30 PMotritzuI’m just a handful of years younger, AddictedtoChaos.

8:32 PMotritzuI’m about the same age as the NES.

8:33 PMaddictedtochaosI started with the Atari 2600
