6:56 PMeathdemonhi

7:00 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!hey Andrew remember me Becky the one who suggested that glitch in your Lego Movie glitches video

7:00 PMeathdemonI seem to be in the minority, but I like the greenlight change

7:00 PME. Zachary KnightHello

7:01 PMCodeNameZAnyone still knows who I am?

7:02 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!Andrew what’s your Skype I have other glitches I love to recommend because out of all the games that I have played one that’s incredibly good that deserves a mention is definitely defiance

7:02 PMCodeNameZI was more suprised when I found out Zack have kids

7:03 PMCodeNameZWell on twitch I am Z2400

7:05 PMeathdemonthe rare times ?I go to a movie its the dine in theatre

7:06 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!oh I so want to see that I’ve seen most of the clips for Lego Batman the movie I’ve seen most of the clips by that I mean the trailers my favorite ones with the butt mobile oh crack

7:07 PMCodeNameZDid you hear guys Sumo Digital the developer of Snake Pass did a livestream of the Switch version of the game they say how the Switch is easy to develop for and they did the port in a week

7:08 PMCodeNameZOr for preordee bonus you have an overpowered item

7:10 PMCodeNameZAlso the developer of Disgea 5 say the same thing

7:10 PMeathdemonthe switch is still $500 buck to mich

7:10 PMeathdemon50

7:10 PMeathdemonue4 works on it too

7:11 PMlittlegittelI’m sure someone has already said this, but I really like your shirt, Zack. Excellent

7:11 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!yeah what I also don’t like about a pre-order bonuses is that if you try to get them at any other point other than the dates they’re released they’re no longer available trust me I know

7:11 PMCodeNameZOne of many many many RPGs for the Switch 😉

7:12 PMAndreas Protopapasthat shadow behind Andrew looks kinda like…. Mario?

7:13 PMCecil475Hi all!

7:14 PMCodeNameZIf anything the avengers destroys more the city than Loki

7:15 PMeathdemonI like it make it 1k for devs make it 100 for students done

7:15 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!one thing that I would wish they would do that I wish they would make a game is mysteries-at-the-museum like sore to make it a trivia game because I love that show and no one has made a game off of it

7:16 PMeathdemonit heavily reduces asset flipers and shovelware. feel bad for devs in poor contries, but thats ok

7:16 PMCodeNameZSteam Direct is a short Japanese guy telling you about Steam games directly to you 😉

7:16 PMPeter GenslerHave you guys in chat preordered the Switch? I’m lucky, since Walmart in Canada doesn’t take preorders apparently. Meaning if I show up at least half an hour before they open I’m guaranteed to get one

7:17 PMeathdemonthey havent set on the fee, but it will be between 100 and 5000 per game. I hope higher, than lower

7:18 PMeathdemonits per title

7:19 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!is anybody going to go see that new Five Nights at Freddy’s movie when it comes out

7:19 PMPeter Genslerlol no

7:20 PMeathdemonacording to the guy behind steamspy he think if its set at $200 it should stop most asset flips

7:20 PMeathdemonvalve will pass on their cut, til you get it back from what I understand

7:21 PMadevãr realãIts hoqzz here

7:22 PMeathdemonsadly only three companies on earth have good descovery. that is netflix google and amazon

7:22 PMCodeNameZAbout the topics will we talk about the Switch internet browser?

7:24 PMCodeNameZThe google play store do kinda that, they recommend you games on what you recently download

7:26 PMPeter GenslerI feel like people are just looking for something to complain about when they mention the internet browser. Console browers are horrible and most people have smartphones on them always.

7:29 PMCodeNameZI played the DEMO on my phone of FNAF 2…. I got jump scared I trew my phone and deleted the demo right away

7:29 PMTassadarkyA friend of mine had suggested making a FNaF VR game. I’d be surprised if they didn’t with the rate they release sequels for that series along with the rise of VR lately.

7:30 PMCodeNameZI did today to look up a Mission on Mass Effect 3

7:30 PMScottyJayManI’m using my PS4 to watch this show.

7:30 PMeathdemonI some people use them to watch youtube, crunchyroll ect on their tv

7:30 PMCodeNameZWii U Mass Effect 3

7:30 PMTassadarkyI used to use the PSP browers all the time, then again, it was before I got a smart phone.

7:31 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I’ve heard that the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is being made by Paramount but I’m not exactly sure I mean I agree with you completely it’s a hit or a Miss in terms of what it’s going to be like

7:32 PMTheRiverAnduinis Paramount a Viacom company?

7:32 PMCodeNameZTalking about browsers if you try to go to My Nintendo with your Wii U browser it says it is not a supporter browser

7:33 PMeathdemonfunny thing, I ran across a film website, that doesnt cover games, talk abou who they think should play overwatch heros in a live action overwatch movie

7:35 PMeathdemonI am glad its dying good bye to good rubish

7:36 PMTheRiverAnduindid Disney close down their studio that made the infinity games?

7:37 PMCodeNameZWell I hated Guitar Hero back in the day because you need a special controller to play it, even using a normal controller would be just fine

7:37 PMeathdemonthey confirmed destiny 2 will be out this year as well, but I will be to busy playing overwatch to care

7:38 PMCodeNameZI have Supercharges for my Wii and the Supercharged Bowser

7:39 PMTheRiverAnduinunless the Switch sells tens of millions this year do not expect top tier third party games to come

7:39 PMIcyLady58- Gamer Extraordinare!I hope that’s not the case because I was actually reading about the horror attraction based off of Five Nights at Freddy’s at Circus Circus and I’m sorry to say this but it was a letdown

7:40 PMCodeNameZI liked the gimmick of Trap team and Supercharges

7:40 PMPeter GenslerI never got anywhere near 100% on Lego City Undercover, so I’m buying the 1080p version for Switch. From what I gather from the cover art and trailer, there may be new content

7:40 PMCodeNameZDo you find it interesting that the Switch version of Skylanders will use the Switch build in NFC scanner

7:43 PMScottyJayManBut you can now play just dance outside

7:43 PMPeter GenslerOh god I can’t imagine the embarrassment

7:43 PMCodeNameZDont you wanna to play Just Dance in an airplane?

7:43 PMeathdemonis it me, or is the switch 6 months early, and $50 to much?

7:44 PMPeter GenslerI’m buying the Switch with Zelda, but I’m a hardcore Zelda fan.

7:45 PMeathdemonmore games/ more system functionality. the system seems half backed

7:45 PMeathdemonthe switch would kill at $250

7:45 PMTheRiverAnduinif Nintendo had a brain they would buy the Timesplitters IP from Cytek UK and give it to Retro to make a new game

7:46 PMEddie Santana19 days to go

7:46 PMPeter GenslerIf you compare the WiiU’s launch year games to Switch, I think the Switch is looking much better. The best WiiU launch year game was what… Another 2D Mario platformer?

7:46 PMCodeNameZOnly the trolls mentions 1-2 Switch 😉

7:47 PMeathdemongamestop is dying anyways. digital is killing it thankful good bye to bad rubish

7:48 PMTheRiverAnduinI have been burned by GameStop for gutting games, I only buy used from them unless i see it is sealed.

7:59 PMeathdemontrust me 90% of all pc sales are digital now

7:59 PMTassadarkyWalmart offsets it’s electronics (gaming included) with their other departments, so they would still sell an all dlc console.
