7:34 PM13UcubeAndrew, PLAY MORE GAMES

7:34 PMkratos3821gearbox has always been involved in controversy “stolen money from sega to make broderlands 2” , “stolen assets from codehunters”

7:34 PMeathdemonthose streaming rules may be legal, but dam is it unneeded very bad pr

7:34 PMLakster37we all know how much Andrew like kittens…

7:34 PMeathdemonby atlus japan

7:35 PMLakster37(sorry, obligatory reference to Andrew’s most popular video – we HAVE to get at least one in per podcast)

7:35 PMkratos3821don’t dare to talk about the game after 7/7/17 because they’re gonna strike your channel with a nuclear strike

7:36 PMeathdemonit bugs me the only reasson p5 is doing so well becouse all the lps of p4g

7:37 PMeathdemoneveryone I know who bought it becouse of lps, what a way to shot themselves in the foot

7:37 PMGFY AHI love Boss fights

7:38 PM13UcubeWas this written by a Spoilers Attorney?

7:39 PMeathdemonthat is a atlus us staff hating their Japanese bosses

7:40 PMLakster37didn’t they later say that this only applies to Japanese reviewers? (which I would still disagree with…)

7:40 PMeathdemoncan you link that, ?”I havent seen it

7:40 PMkratos3821this are the same stupid practices made by Nintendo

7:41 PMeathdemoneven nintendo doesnt threaten twitch streamers

7:42 PMkratos3821Nintendo get half of every penny you get from twitch , if you stream one of their games

7:42 PMeathdemonno they get youtube ad rev, not twitch rev

7:42 PMkratos3821that’s why i stopped streaming nintendo games

7:43 PMLakster37oh sorry, that “Japan only restriction” thing is for puyo puyo tetris (which is also Sega published)

7:44 PMLakster37yeah I hadn’t heard anything about Nintendo with Twitch revenue, only YouTube

7:44 PMeathdemonnier route A is in it

7:47 PMeathdemonisnt most of it cosmetic

7:47 PMeathdemonyes its full jp vo

7:48 PMeathdemoncost, nintendo would have to pay agaib to use jp vo in the west

7:48 PMeathdemonas did atlus

7:49 PMLakster37what’s agaib?

7:49 PMeathdemonagain sorry

7:49 PMkratos3821Nintendo making “mistakes since 1996”

7:49 PMLakster37oic, as in pay the japanese voice actors more for using in other regions?

7:49 PMeathdemonyup

7:49 PMkratos3821Nintendo fans “damage controlling since 1996”

7:50 PMeathdemonthoses deals are done on a region by region basis

7:50 PMLakster37so Nintendo didn’t screw up until the N64? that’s pretty impressive!

7:51 PMeathdemonthink of persona’s a pokemon and you would be close

7:51 PMkratos3821yup! , the mistakes started with the 64

7:52 PMLakster37that’s kinda weird that Nintendo would still include it on the cart, though. are they exactly the same for each region, but the differences are just based on console region setting?

7:54 PMLakster37would the games have cost more back then in comparison to today’s price, though?

7:54 PMGFY AHtimes are changin

7:55 PMMixtape TroyBUT GUYS

7:55 PMkratos3821back then , there wasn’t the amount of consumers that now buy games

7:55 PMIngenting Filmenhiya boys, how late am I

7:55 PMMixtape TroyGames cost SO much to make

7:56 PMeathdemonthey are eating the cost, the free jp vo is a make good for the delys

7:57 PMLakster37maybe it’s just so consumers are forced to SWITCH the Switch’s region… you know, cause Nintendo wants you to do anything that involves SWITCHING something on the Switch

7:59 PMPats459Mass Effect

8:00 PMLakster37had they even confirmed that that is what the patch did?

8:00 PM13Ucubewho, me?

8:01 PMkratos3821that is why!, you buy games 4 to 6 months after the launch date.

8:01 PMLakster37unless it’s Zelda*

8:02 PMkratos3821game of the year editions are the best , all the patches and dlc are include

8:02 PMkratos3821and cheaper

8:03 PMCarl King

8:04 PMeathdemongames are bigger and more complex, but bioware had 5 years, so I dont blame ea for saying enough is enough

8:04 PMGFY AHsometimes good sometimes bad

8:07 PMeathdemonend of fiscal

8:07 PMCarl KingMass effect Andromeda is a shameful despray

8:08 PMGFY AHnot my thing

8:08 PMeathdemonit was nier, but the comunity fixed it in 48 hours

8:09 PMkratos3821the communit5y shouldn’t have to do it in the first place

8:09 PMeathdemonnot defending nier, but that game had a tiny budget of 15 mil

8:09 PMeathdemonand pc was very much a after thought sadly

8:10 PMeathdemonand yes the pc gamming community has some dam smart people. ever heard of durante

8:11 PMeathdemondurante did he was paid to foix kings story’s pc port

8:11 PMeathdemonfix

8:12 PMeathdemondurante is cs professor/researcher out of aus

8:13 PMLakster37what are some of the bugs?

8:14 PMkratos3821lego city undercover was shitty on the wii-u and keep being shitty on the switch

8:14 PMkratos3821the same bugs in both versions

8:14 PMAndrew Eisen“The Bugs and Glitches of The LEGO Movie Videogame” (…)

8:14 PMLakster37I’d be nice

8:15 PMeathdemonyou want to make a switch game a devkit it cheap, only $500

8:16 PM13UcubeDoes any have a good place to get a working NES original console for less than 80 us?

8:17 PMLakster37you have any used shops near you?

8:18 PMeathdemonor the nt mini

8:18 PMLakster37top loader are probably much more likely to work though

8:19 PM13Ucubei just got a broken one off ebay. it works but it audio buzzes REAlly bad

8:19 PMeathdemonif you want nes stuff, the nt mini is a option

8:19 PMScottyJayManTop loader NES only has RF, not composite.

8:20 PM13Ucubeyep
