Chat Transcript:

6:51 PME. Zachary KnightHello Everyone

6:56 PMBryan GillisHey guys! Visiting the US, so it’s actually convenient for me this week

6:56 PMDED_SEC GamingHav u played duke Nukem 3d

6:57 PMBryan GillisIn the Chicago suburbs to see my Mum

6:57 PMBryan GillisWas in the Houston area last week to see my Dad as well

6:58 PMBryan GillisSame with the allergies- mine are a lot worse here than they were in Scotland

6:58 PMBryan Gillisthe cold climate there probably leads to fewer allergens

6:58 PMBryan GillisAh, cool cool

6:59 PMmatthew wilsonwhat do you think of the walmart leaks?

7:00 PMBornDistractedrecharging from games can be a good thing…

7:01 PMBryan GillisOh cool, you found a way to play with them. Did you need to buy another copy of the game?

7:01 PMBryan GillisAh, okay. didn’t know that was a possibility, cool

7:02 PMmatthew wilsonstardew valley should run on a toaster, that is kind of suprisingf

7:03 PMBryan GillisIt looks like it should, certainly, but maybe it’s not that efficient behind the scenes

7:04 PMBornDistractedtell Andrew to take his time lol…

7:05 PMhype guysup

7:05 PMBryan Gillishave you finished the museum collection? That’s the painful one for me

7:06 PMBryan GillisI’m waiting for the update on Switch, then I plan to go in mostly blind and be surprised

7:06 PMBryan GillisOh wow, nice! Congrats

7:07 PMBornDistractedsometimes spoilers are difficult to avoid

7:07 PMBryan GillisYeah. I’m just avoiding any explicit walkthroughs of the new content. it’s not like there’s one big twist to avoid the spoilage of

7:08 PMmatthew wilsonwhy first gen is most popular gen

7:11 PMmatthew wilsonf that, no way will I pay for online saves. I get that for free on steam

7:13 PMBornDistractedcant cloud saves get corrupted?…

7:13 PMBryan GillisMuch less likely than local saves getting corruptes

7:13 PMBornDistractedoh ok

7:13 PMmatthew wilsonunlikely cloud saves are rarely just saved to 1 server

7:13 PMBryan Gilliscloud files usually use multiple backups to check for corruption

7:17 PMBryan GillisSeems reasonable to me. no reason they should have to foot the bill if someone else breaks it

7:20 PMBryan GillisYeah, the legality issue is another big thorn. it boggles the mind that repairing your own electronics could be illegal

7:21 PMBornDistractedmaybe they can franchise their repair centers?…

7:23 PMBornDistractedagreed

7:23 PMmatthew wilsondell does that for their stuff

7:24 PMmatthew wilsonagain I wont pay for cloud saves, I get that dor free on steam

7:24 PMmatthew wilsoneven ms give cloud saves to non gold members

7:25 PMmatthew wilsonthe lack of usb backup is the insane part

7:25 PMBornDistractedbad thing for Nintendo is putting ridiculous lack of memory in the Switch then adds cloud saving for a fee…

7:25 PMBryan GillisYeah. I think they’re just worried about cheaters

7:26 PMBryan Gillislocal save backups have a history of being hacked

7:27 PMmatthew wilsonspoiler alert the switch can already be hacked hiven a hardware cpu bug they cant fix lol

7:28 PMBryan GillisYeah, true. And worries about hacks shouldn’t hurt legitimate consumers

7:29 PMBryan Gillisit’s like how only legal viewers of movies have to watch those FBI warnings, or legal players of games have to deal with DRM

7:29 PMmatthew wilsonnot the next run, the next revision. they would have to swap to a new tegra chip

7:30 PMmatthew wilsonI think its 3 like every other zelda game, your thinking pokemon
