6:35 PMeathdemonadult swim wins April fools

6:37 PMAndrew EisenOh? What did it do?

6:39 PMeathdemonless up a joke, more of a surprise, but still.

6:41 PMAndrew EisenWant to like that show. So much incredible thought, craft, imagination and intelligence in the writing but I honestly can’t stand it.

6:41 PMeathdemondont mind it, but not huge fan ether, but still a good way to win April 1st.

6:47 PME. Zachary KnightHello

6:48 PME. Zachary KnightSaturdays and Sundays just aren’t good days for me when it comes to April Fools. I am just way too busy to be able to follow anything.

6:50 PMeathdemonadult swim have come a shockingly big in the games industry as a leading indie publisher, with a very very good track record

6:55 PMkratos3821Nintendo fans “damage controlling since 1996”

6:55 PMAndrew EisenReferring to something specific?

6:56 PMkratos3821after a few big aaa announcements , it’s obvious that nintendon’t gonna have aaa support

6:57 PMAndrew EisenWho is damage controlling and how?

6:58 PMkratos3821that’s slogan for t-shirt

6:58 PMkratos3821Nintendo fans “who’s damage controlling and how?”

6:59 PM13Ucubeyoutube policies suck

7:04 PM13UcubeIs the third stamina wheel worth building or should I just get hearts?

7:06 PM13UcubeAah yes, Attention Deficiency

7:10 PMAndrew Eisen…

7:11 PM13Ucubebtw, thanks for getting Daytona stuck in my head

7:13 PMMixtape TroyDid Andrew come out as gay?

7:14 PMeathdemonI think 11 or something

7:15 PMMixtape TroyI expected something like that from you today.

7:17 PMMixtape TroyYeah Apr 1st

7:18 PMLakster37😭 I knew it! they were actors!

7:18 PMMixtape TroyTruman?!

7:19 PMLakster37I bet you don’t even live in Oklahoma, do you?

7:19 PMMixtape TroyAndrew you’re a liar.

7:19 PMCyberjinI hire actors too, but for friends

7:19 PMMixtape TroyYou’re way to lean and handsome to be a lush

7:20 PMMixtape TroyWho’s Mad Cats?

7:21 PMLakster37I think that’s the first time I saw EZK without a hat

7:21 PMeathdemongood riddens all their stuff was crap

7:21 PMLakster37it’s with a “z”, silly. that’s how you knew they were quality 😛

7:22 PMMixtape TroyZackary’s connection sounds and looks really poor.

7:22 PMmonkeyboiZach sounds like a glitch robot

7:23 PMMixtape TroyYikes.

7:23 PMeathdemondam ezk thats bad

7:23 PMMixtape Troy8 people sharing it can’t be helping.

7:23 PMTrilinkthanks to Breath of the Wild, i can catch this live for once!

7:23 PMeathdemonset up a second acess point

7:24 PMLakster37why are there so many devices on wifi? I thought your family was a sham. aren’t you alone?

7:24 PMCyberjinget extenders for your wifi

7:24 PMMixtape Troylol

7:25 PMMixtape TroyYeah I hear that’s where all their money went

7:25 PMLakster37I guess that makes sense for them to want to publish a game w/ so many peripherals… did they ever publish any other games?

7:26 PMNick BradleyJust came in and so far Ive heard nothing about Nicki Minaj…

7:26 PMeathdemonI have just ignored peta, they are just begging for attention

7:26 PMLakster37… that game is just called “Milk” …?

7:27 PMMixtape Troy@Lakster37 if ARMS is just called ARMS…

7:27 PMLakster37does that stand for something?

7:28 PMLakster37for some reason I always thought it did, maybe it doesn’t

7:28 PMMixtape TroyDon’t think so

7:29 PMLakster37Are your udders ready?

7:30 PMI Love Woodchucks SocietyDoes anyone actually take PETA seriously?

7:30 PMMixtape TroyPETA’s trolling is growing more and more obvious as time goes on.

7:33 PMNick BradleyLol there is no way they wrote that, that is insane

7:33 PMLakster37do they emphasize “switch” in their written statement?

7:34 PMAndrew EisenHere’s the link if you don’t believe me:…

7:34 PMLakster37you could see how many almonds are in a cup… that you shake around to make almond milk?

7:34 PMeathdemonwell peta is insane, someone get peta some peta bread

7:34 PMCyberjinthey shouldn’t be taken seriously

7:35 PMCyberjinlosing credibility

7:36 PMNick BradleyHoly cow, that is udderly insane.

7:36 PMLakster37nah, they just do these things for publicity. I don’t think they actually care about most depictions of animals in games

7:38 PMLakster37(Japan – are they anywhere else?)

7:40 PMI Love Woodchucks SocietyI love woodchucks, and I have no problem with how they were poorly represented in the video game “Over the Hedge”

7:41 PMLakster37but no one would have ever read it

7:41 PMeathdemongood example prison architect

7:42 PMlittlegittelWait, games don’t represent reality? You mean there aren’t fire breathing flowers in the sewer?

7:43 PMkratos3821p.e.t.a “people enjoying tits and asses ” , that’s the reason why they’re bad at taking care of animals

7:44 PMeathdemonspec ops the line

7:45 PMLakster37no kratos, if they’re busy doing that, then they can’t be abusing animals

7:45 PMLakster37or… at least not as much

7:47 PMeathdemonthey cant anyway most of the web is h t t p s btw, all they can see is domain names nothing else

7:48 PMHoqZz-Hello its hoqzz- here

7:50 PMHoqZz-Hello andrew eisen and e zachery night

7:51 PMHoqZz-Typo

7:54 PMMixtape TroySo… what effectively is happening?

7:54 PMMixtape TroyThere’s a lot of conflicting info

7:55 PMLakster37I get specific ads from Google based on specific searches and stuff I’ve done, though

7:55 PMLakster37but that DOES actually happen NOW

7:55 PMLakster37if you go searching for semen, there’s a good chance you’ll get semen ads…

7:57 PM13Ucubenothing is actually changing because Congress doesn’t ever ACTUALLY do anything

7:58 PM13Ucube… except spend money they don’t have

7:58 PMMixtape TroyOkay. I was thinking they were going to be selling data now

7:58 PMLakster37they can now

7:58 PMMixtape TroyOh so Comcast and Time Warner and their ilk lobbied for this

7:59 PMLakster37definitely

7:59 PMLakster37so does Google not sell that search info? they just use it for themselves? or do they sell to other advertisers as well?

8:01 PMMixtape Troy(Big) Business as usual in America.

8:01 PMLakster37you’re hampering the free market, Andrew

8:02 PMMixtape TroyYour connection has improved though, Zack!

8:03 PMLakster37idk why, I’m surprised they haven’t completely shut of ezk’s internet with what he’s been saying

8:03 PMeathdemonif I were king for a day, I would force line sharing

8:05 PMSheriff Texasandrew is epic 🙂

8:05 PMMixtape TroyWow my god your reading voice was perfect

8:06 PMeathdemonjust make the tools ver acounts get avalable to all, if it costs to much have people paay $5 a month for people who want them

8:06 PMlittlegittelVery Marie Antoinette of them. “We don’t have bread” ” let them eat cake.” Eggs are harassment.” “Change the icon”

8:08 PMLakster37I think “not all eggs” is a perfect description

8:09 PMLakster37corn rows, Andrew

8:11 PMLakster37I’m pretty sure Wii U used something similar to blu-ray… not DVD

8:11 PMScottyJayManWii U disc was proprietary, holds 26gb

8:12 PMLakster37right, just like Wii, but Wii was basically DVD. Wii U is very similar to bluray, at least from my understanding

8:12 PMLakster37only Australians cared about this?

8:15 PMeathdemonits not solid state, its faster than a disc, but slower than a ssd

8:16 PMLakster37my thought was, maybe it was just something that was leftover from ps4 or xb1 box?

8:16 PMeathdemonin fact digital foundry found internal memory to be the fastest way to load games

8:16 PMJacks 47My

8:17 PMLakster37it may be slower, but I’m pretty sure it’s still solid state…

8:17 PMLakster37you could call n64 carts solid state

8:18 PMeathdemonits solid state, but not a ssd

8:19 PMScottyJayManPsp go was 🙂

8:19 PMLakster37it’s pretty much a proprietary flash cart isn’t it?

8:19 PMLakster37haha ^

8:19 PMCarl KingI expected twerking guys 😊

8:19 PMScottyJayManDepends on the time zone

8:20 PMLakster37so that means you’ve tried?

8:20 PMCarl King👍😋

8:21 PMCarl KingTrump 2020

8:22 PMCarl King🗽

8:22 PM13Ucubewhat’s your idea for 24 hr game a thon that you say you are going to probably forget??

8:23 PMLakster37We want for everything but Switch

8:23 PMScottyJayManMore of you watching kitties 😳

8:23 PMLakster37why doyou need patience for Let’s Plays? There’s not much editing at all… just record and upload

8:23 PM13Ucubebtw Zachary thank u for subscribing!!

8:24 PMkratos3821nintendo it’s just not being supported by aaa and the few games they’ll get are gonna cost 10 bucks more…. Nintendo fans “2017 and still damage controlling”

8:24 PMCarl KingI subbed because you masturbated to kittens so don’t know what i expect lol

8:25 PMMixtape Troy@Lakster37 syncing game audio and voice audio, cutting of certain footage, lowering white noise levels, etc

8:26 PMLakster37I think people would most want you to do ASMR btw, Andrew

8:26 PMMixtape TroyWatching, re-watching, editing levels, re-watching

8:26 PMMixtape TroyLots goes into Let’s Playing

8:26 PMLakster37yeah, most Let’s plays don’t do that… maybe dividng it up in 20 min parts

8:26 PMLakster37but that’s not that difficult, especially if you just record it that way

8:28 PMLakster37yeah, I completely understand that most videos require lots of editting, I was just saying: Let’s Plays are one of the few types of videos that really don’t…

8:28 PMLakster37just set up everything the way you want, record it that way, and post

8:29 PMMixtape TroyAgree to disagree Lakster. Try it out if you haven’t, lot more to it than you would think.

8:31 PMLakster37If you want to go through the process of editing out boring bits, yes I agree. But if you’re literally just showing everything, like a live stream divided into parts

8:32 PMLakster37which a lot of Let’s Plays do, it’s not that hard

8:32 PMMixtape TroyYou were presenting facts, not pandering to Nintendo, Andrew.

8:32 PMMixtape TroyThey get like that.

8:33 PMLakster37it’s nowhere near 3 dozen is it?

8:34 PMMixtape TroyMore like one dozen Lakster

8:34 PMLakster37yeah let’s what I’d say lol

8:36 PMLakster37see that sort of thing starts getting into what I would consider more of a review, maybe with lots of gameplay. but to me the benefit of Let’s Play is people experiencing a game with their audience

8:37 PMMixtape TroyChuggaconroy’s level of quality is unreal

8:37 PMLakster37alright, fair enough

8:39 PMCarl KingYou need to get voice over work bro i think even Alex Jones made about 800k one year from it and your voice is better 🗨😮

8:43 PMCarl King50 shades of Trey Gowdy 😎

8:43 PMLakster37shapes of grey? were you saying words you wouldn’t want to repeat on the podcast?

8:43 PMMixtape TroyDamn that sucks Andrew

8:44 PMLakster37well most people hear their own voice lower than they do. for you, it’s not possible to be lower Andrew 😛

8:45 PMMixtape TroyBarbershop Quartets?!

8:47 PM13UcubeWe need more barbershop vids Andrew

8:51 PM13UcubeDescant is so fun

8:51 PMCarl King😂

8:52 PM13UcubeAnyway the wind blows
