7:46 PMeathdemonso a click bait headline

7:47 PMjordan thompsonjust imagine his assistant hearing him say, “I want to meet my female fans, for research, I swear”

7:49 PMeathdemonthat headline gives a very different impression, atleast tone wise, than what he said.

7:52 PMRyan SteeleI disagree. It isn’t clickbait, it’s just hyperbole.

7:54 PMRyan SteeleYou didn’t literally find pieces of shit in your Switch box, so yes, it’s hyperbole.

7:55 PMRyan SteeleAt least, I think so.

7:55 PMjordan thompsonis having babies causing overpopulation/ page 1 : here’s why you might just really want a dog

7:55 PMRyan SteeleOh, sorry, did I misunderstand what we’re talking about?

7:55 PMRyan SteeleJust jumped in a bit ago.

7:58 PMjordan thompsonso we’re not mentioning the SNES release, if not this week next week and at some point I’d be nice to get some thoughts on a N64 classic

7:59 PMeathdemonyour right outside of trevor from gta5

8:17 PMeathdemonyou mean use your ipad, diaries have all been replaced

8:17 PMjordan thompsonthat’s oddly specific Andrew, are you speaking from experience

8:21 PMTheRiverAnduinthe full game should be amazing

8:21 PMjordan thompsoncan we discuss SNES classic release and the possiblity of a N64 classic at some point

8:21 PMRyan SteeleThat demo was great. Not even totally done with everything you can do in it yet.

8:26 PMRedhawk Gaming(xenboblade)

8:26 PMTheRiverAnduingamestop has a clearance for X

8:27 PMTheRiverAnduin20$

8:27 PMRyan SteeleXenoblade X was great to play as well. I thought it played better than the original, and the setting was more appealing to me.

8:28 PMeathdemonsoon tm

8:28 PMjordan thompsonI hate to be annoying and repeat myself but can we talk about the SNES classic and the possibility of a N64 classic next week

8:28 PMRyan SteeleI still wonder if Xenoblade 2 is really coming when they say. It just doesn’t really feel ready yet, based on what we’ve seen so far.

8:30 PMRedhawk Gamingits coming

8:30 PMRedhawk Gamingthey gave us a 8 minute trailer

8:31 PMRedhawk GamingNintendo only shows finished games

8:31 PMTheRiverAnduinX was shown several years before release but no date

8:31 PMRyan SteeleYeah, X had pretty substantial trailers a long way out

8:32 PMjordan thompsonalright I’ll get ready for next week, I’ll bring the beer someone else is in charge of the lube, not me

8:32 PMRyan SteeleGiven that they have a date, it seems likely to stick. It still just feels early somehow
