CrazyFishPerson: Also means you don't have the mass effect problem of animating eyes.
Karfsma778: Then why do they keep making them?
sethjharris: what do they uncover?!?
Kramburger: @Gamerboy12k Aesthetics, I think
Karfsma778: If they always dig too deep?
Gamerboy12k: oh
Drazoth: Oh yay, pulled a foil sacred cat for my zombo combo deck
GDwarf: Alex: Emil (guy with a billiard-ball skull head) is from the original NieR, in which his original form wore a blindfold like the Androids here do, so it's a neat little back reference
MistahFixIt: @Gamerboy12k - For an unsubtle visual metaphor (realtalk - their outfits are never explained)
CaffeinatedLemur: karfsma778: for reasons are legit but also spoilers
Hamsterhotep: Also, there's the whole 'blind swordsman' aesthetic.
cuttlefishman: If we're not to supposed know it, while are you spoiling it?
MC_GigglePants: @karfsma778 they're super advanced models so YoRHa can't afford not to use them presumably
GDwarf: cuttlefishman: Because this is Talking Simulator?
RoastedGravy: Because this is Talking Simulator.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: so...who sent you to fight??
Granitefish: cuttlefishman it's a 100% spoil run
cuttlefishman: Shhh, being facetious
Dandinstorm12: because Alex...can't be shut down
aesir_blade: Your gods are dead.
MistahFixIt: So this is Nihilism The Video Game?
Newbiespud: Just so the androids can have a god.
CrazyFishPerson: Because that is what you were programmed to do.
nihilist_twitch_user: I'm in.
Newbiespud: So they have a "cause."
Serifina: Wait. So, it's androids vs machines... in an endless war... and the creators of both are long-dead? That's AMAZING
RoastedGravy: It’s a journey of self-inspection and the concepts of purpose.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if the humans were already dead, then who built the androids and sent them to fight in the first place?
GDwarf: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Androids, after all the humans are dead androids, created by humans to serve them, become suicidal. So some androids band together to lie and say Humans still exist so that androids stop being suicidal
EikoandMog: It's absolutely Existentialist.
Macheya: So does this game tie into the end of the original Nier?
Granitefish: The truth behind the Machines is probably even worse
CaffeinatedLemur: well there is an actual reason that the two sides keep getting pit against against each other in story, if ok to spoill
JediTransmit: Ve believe in nossing.
Contiguouskittycat: Man, this isn't what Nier fought for.
GDwarf: This game is *ludicrously* existentialist, not nihilist.
Dandinstorm12: does focus firing the head help?
RoastedGravy: Why do they continue to fight?
Darth_Wooper: So... we're Wall-e? Continuing to do our job way after we were designed to do so?
sopranocat: Ookay, yeah, I'm gonna go watch Mario Paint again or play Stardew Valley or something cheerful
sopranocat: Bye!
Newbiespud: philosophy philosophy philosophy HITTING GIANT ROBOTS WITH GIANT BUZZSAWS
MistahFixIt: UHM
CoyoteSans: Yoko Taro's Thing is "War is Both Horrible and Pointless", but bringing it home REALLY well.
saucemaster5000: If the story is nihilistic and predictable, what actually makes this interesting? Again love the game.
dragoon3zero: i thought it was into lava
GoAmpDog2: that triggered me so hard
Positivemilkhotel: I would argue that the most *** part of this game is PASCAL
silverxX59: when i played i honestly thought that the humans who created 2B where the aliens and the machines where the actual humans
wildpeaks: ok, that's my type of game :D
MistahFixIt: Are we gonna beat a *** with his own a- YEP. YEP WE ARE
silenceaux: Speaking of wtf, time to beat a robomech to death with its own arm
cuttlefishman: This game Sartre's so hard.
Astra7525: yikes
GDwarf: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Androids existed before aliens appeared or humans died, but when humans died out they all became suicidal, and the aliens appeared, so some androids got together and created the big lie of humans still existing
Positivemilkhotel: specifically Pascal in A2's playthough
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: huh
2Flower: Nooo! My load-bearing eye!
Karfsma778: When did this become Metal Gear Solid: Rising: Revengance
EikoandMog: Sartre actually shows up!
JohnLockeCole: Newbiespud I mean.. Rotary digging Blades more than Buzz Saws really
firehazard_k: Oh jeez she has a beauty mark NotLikeThis sigh
wildpeaks: lrrGOAT there
Newbiespud: Fair nuff
GoAmpDog2: that dick
RoastedGravy: Is his name Pascal?
DigitalSeahorse: this war situation reminds me of religion
Spolin: Pascale BibleThump
Granitefish: Poor Pascal
MC_GigglePants: There is also a Simone de Beauvoir
aesir_blade: Jean-Paul is actually named Sartre in the original version, but was censored for some reason? @LoadingReadyRun
Dmc3628: yeah the Sartre's Melancholy quest is a wild quest that riffs straight from Sartre existential
Hamsterhotep: Pascal? Is he into betting?
RoastedGravy: NieR Automata is such an interesting moral dilemma.
EikoandMog: As I said, all the Machine Lifeforms that are named outside of Adam and Eve are Existentialist Philosophers.
GDwarf: And this game is *hella* existentialist. It's *entirely* about how outside sources of morality are flawed and you have to forge your own destiny, truth, and meaning
GoAmpDog2: fu jean-paul
CaffeinatedLemur: The two sides fight for data so the... group running things can evolve further
Positivemilkhotel: Pascal is definitely certified Feels of the Year
rarermonsters: So, Alex, to confirm, you're scarily cute moe android maid just flew an attack mecha and killed a gargant with its own chainsaw hands. Just confirming that I saw the most awesome thing ever
bigb00gi3: One thing that's been bothering my through all my playthroughs is that I can't figure out why A2 kills the robot king bebby
Spolin: Pascal just wanted to teach the other robots to be better BibleThump
firehazard_k: When did this turn into gundam Kappa
GDwarf: I mean, Jean-Pual literally says, as his first thing to you, "Existence precedes Essence"
WubGhost: huh, I guess riggers really are a tribe now
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: reminds me a little of the old Fred Saberhagen series "Berserker" where this alien race had long ago died out but their killer creations continued to ravage worlds primarily because they didn't know what else to do.
EikoandMog: Engels is what you just fought, the arms being Marx.
WubGhost: *badum tss*
skinny666: i just got here but it looks it's like ninja gaiden meets gundam
cuttlefishman: There are also Elks, the most philosphical of ungulates.
RoastedGravy: It’s a hypercube!
HongKongFuzi: Aren't blackboxes supposed to be brightly colored?
Newbiespud: This whole mission was about seizing the means of production
RoastedGravy: Laheiyem
RoastedGravy: How do you spell that?
thegrandpigeon: @Newbiespud but for whom?!/!?!???
Contiguouskittycat: The end!
Dandinstorm12: See, this seems like the logical conclusion to Talking Simulator, except maybe Myst
ThatDangSkeleton: that was a short game Kappa
aesir_blade: @RoastedGravy L'Chaim?
skinny666: and they all died!
Pimptimus_Prime: SOULSPLOSION!
firehazard_k: GG
skinny666: great game right
Edgarware: They got better
Dandinstorm12: Welp that's all she wrote chat
wildpeaks: got uploaded in another body I bet ?
EikoandMog: I remember playing the Demo and then picking up the game like "HOW THE lrrEFF did we durvive that?!"
RoastedGravy: It’s like that word you pronounce with phlegm.
Lord_Hosk: Because... there is a resurrection ship in orbit
Mijnheer: RIP, game over, good stream everybody, good night Kappa
GoAmpDog2: what 2B has two blindfolds?
Gekyouryuu: like a Tachikoma!
GDwarf: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: By the end of the second campaign the whole thing is revealed to be *even more* pointless. See, all the aliens are dead, too. The war machines of both sides are fighting for no reason, as it's shown they *could* co-exist if they wanted to, but they're so tied to their original purpose that they can't stop
wildpeaks: nice
EikoandMog: And then I played it, like "Oh. I feel dumb now."
Hamsterhotep: And so, you are...again.
Drazoth: so our soul is on the cloud?
RoastedGravy: Yeah, L'Chaim
rarermonsters: I've never thought I'd have a favorite walk cycle until now
JediTransmit: Kinda of reminds me on the wheel from 2001
DigitalSeahorse: except for his memories
rarermonsters: Google Souls
jonasjonIV: Wow. This is so cool.
Granitefish: Gdwarf a note you get after ending E shows that the entire fight is pointless even further
MC_GigglePants: Cloud Ghosts all up in here
silverxX59: so can we make the connection between yohora and the geth from mass effect
Gekyouryuu: Doctor Alex: Yorha Units = Tachikoma?
GDwarf: Granitefish: Yep!
CoyoteSans: I always wanted to write that kind of story, where a person wakes up after fying, and has to run to the dump where their old bady is being disposed of because it has their grandpa's watch still on their broken arm.
Contiguouskittycat: He's mostly the same.
KodeMage: Uploading your mind is a cool sci fi trope, Charles Stross wrote about it.
EikoandMog: Wasn't enough bandwidth to do it, iirc.
CoyoteSans: *dying
cuttlefishman: Fanservice Query - is there anything more fanservicey we can put 9S in?
mikhailkaminsky: @LoadingReadyRun https://www.dropbox.com/s/n5s7yzoajo4q9b5/SlotData_1.rar?dl=0 Here you go Docs, if you wanna use it.
Fugi: You'd think they'd have better wifi in 5062
Karfsma778: Cam: Unrelated to this game, but is Civ 6 worth buying? I know you played 5.
EikoandMog: Glory to Mankind!
Lord_Hosk: I can certainly see the strong influence of popular sci-fi over the past ten to fifteen years.
Shenandygains: glory to arstoszka
JohnLockeCole: She hesitates before saying it
misteline: That pause tho
Hamsterhotep: "The Emperor Protects"
Dandinstorm12: why so mad bro
CoyoteSans: Like, the body is disposible, but the sentimental trinkets aren't.
JohnLockeCole: Glory.... to *sadness* mankind
wildpeaks: there is multiplayer ?
MC_GigglePants: It's 11945 Fugi. It's even worse than you though.
Namboto: the salute covers the boob window
RoastedGravy: MULTIPLAYER?!
MC_GigglePants: Thought*
ThatDangSkeleton: I'm really looking forward to the context for that fist clench bc I don't know it yet
Dandinstorm12: ooooh
arcaneIllumination: Just got here, so going to watch the VOD, just want to quickly ask, who's playing, Cam or Alex?
JediTransmit: Try jumping?
GDwarf: The multiplayer comes to its own in Ending E
Dandinstorm12: Can you write Sonnets?
RoastedGravy: Aw dammit, I thought it was co-op.
wildpeaks: that sounded innocent enough until the words "and you can choose to harvest them"
Dandinstorm12: Alex
GDwarf: Like, ending E does the best thing ever with this sort of system
Hamsterhotep: "There once was a droid from Nantucket..."
PiousHeathen: Dear Dr Cam: There is something about this endless cycle of obligation in the face of suffering, and death as an honorable end that reminds me of the concept of "Giri". Considering this game is Japanese, that would certianly be on their philosophical minds. (Especially the way giri is described in the "Hagakure".
RealGamerCow: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 44:32.
spicydungus: !uptime
EikoandMog: Emil's Room lrrBEEJ
KodeMage: Has anyone here read Accelerando? It shows a world with uploading en mas.
Fugi: NierDeathExperience(s)?
Flea_Hastings: Linkbl!
Dandinstorm12: lrrJUDGE
RoastedGravy: ERMAGERD, LINKBL.
wildpeaks: Yellow Card
Flea_Hastings: Adam wuz here
RoastedGravy: HE’S BACK.
Hamsterhotep: @KodeMage: Stross is love...
Gekyouryuu: Doctor Alex: Yorha Units = Tachikoma?
Darth_Wooper: First save 38 minutes and change in.
SirOctopus_: So does the save mechanic reflect the in world save mechanic?
Positivemilkhotel: if you try to revive one of the dead bodies there's a chance that it actually just tries to *** kill you
EikoandMog: Oh shit, it's my desktop background.
thegrandpigeon: save after only 0 min... still better than domina
ggyppt just subscribed with Twitch Prime. ggyppt subscribed for 7 months in a row!
ggyppt: Been extremely interested in this game, so glad you guys are talking about it
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ggyppt! (Today's storm count: 63)
Rockario: Geez, yeah. 45 minutes with Alex powering through on easy.
Positivemilkhotel: Here comes the part that's a LIE
Dandinstorm12: also someone give Twitter a Yellow for me
timble4: note the year of 5012
Rappa95: @LoadingReadyRun you guys should TOTALLY selfdestruct
Dandinstorm12: SUUUB
Dandinstorm12: lrrSPOT
KodeMage: I just re-read accelerando. It's actually pretty scary and horiffic on the reread.
Mysterious_Challenger: If savepoints are designed this way for a reason, then it should at LEAST checkpoint in the first section.
TheMoatman: It's @NierDeath
GoAmpDog2: this part made me lose my *** when it came back a round
Valdinzar24: this game btw is a direct sequel to the first nier
KodeMage: kids run around with AK-47s as toys because they can't be killed
Kramburger: Ty Fugi
Positivemilkhotel: L I E S A N D S L A N D E R
KodeMage: very analagous to modern COD players
GDwarf: Valdinzar24: well, "direct", it's a few millennia in the future
Dandinstorm12: Do no evil?
firehazard_k: Not gonna lie I love the androids asthetic
Hamsterhotep: If you like Stross, Iron Sunrise and Singularity Sky go through some serious levels of wrong..,
All_mankind glorious?
EikoandMog: Oh man, this was AMAZING.
KodeMage: The enemies here aren't the Vile Offspring though, they're aliens.
KodeMage: They could also be of our own making
aesir_blade: Note that the Commander doesn't have her eyes or mouths covered. She's actually a non-YoRHa android that got picked up as the project started. Jackass knows her.
phorrestgaze: for the love of god don't go AFK at this.
Talin06: I just noticed Alex's shirt
wildpeaks: nice :)
Granitefish: This was great. Also where it comes into play in the second playthrough
Valdinzar24: @GDwarf well the consequences of what happened in nier 1 lead to the events of this game
Macheya: @phorrestgaze Why not?
nuvestrahl: Vibration settings,... mmmm.
EikoandMog: @phorrestgaze I did right at the end. It recorded 5 minutes of me being afk.
Spleeniop22: Sweet.
MC_GigglePants: Yeah the menus and HUD are the GUI that the androids run in their OS
GDwarf: My controls bugged out when this started, so, uh, it ended up taking a *long* time to get through this in playthrough 2
Dandinstorm12: that's....deep
Spleeniop22: haha yea
Drazoth: Just pulled an angel of sanctions for my embalm deck!
EikoandMog: YESSSS ADAM YESSSSS
rhkr3003: haha
Astra7525: wat
Dandinstorm12: lol
RoastedGravy: Kawaii-desu?
GoAmpDog2: yes yes yes
silenceaux: Make robo-boy blush
Spleeniop22: haha
phorrestgaze: @Macheya I made dinner, 2ed playthrough I had to wait like 20 minutes.
ThatDangSkeleton: @EikoandMog We haven't met that guy yet tho Kappa
aesir_blade: @LoadingReadyRun Turn on vibration, there's some dialogue for that
firehazard_k: So 9S is best boy?
nihilist_twitch_user: TehePelo
Macheya: @phorrestgaze Oh man, seriously? That's amazing.
Shenandygains: alex show cam the basic gameplay function chips!
Rappa95: SELF DESTRUCT
RoastedGravy: Dialogue for vibrations? Kinky. Kappa
Rappa95: DO IT
Fugi: Oh, it _could_ kill you if you do it right
RoastedGravy: Kreygasm
thedeatheffect: self destruct = emergency fanservice Kappa
GoAmpDog2: use it
EikoandMog: (It kills your costume)
firehazard_k: SELF DESTRUCT
splatty1: fanservice discussion part 2
Positivemilkhotel: "it kills something" lmao
GDwarf: Alex clearly has to show Cam the core CPU chip
MC_GigglePants: It kills clothes for sure
Shenandygains: this game lets you delete sys.32
MalBeam: @Hamsterhotep Saturn's Children also played with androids without their creators searching for meaning
vagrant314 just subscribed with Twitch Prime!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, vagrant314! (Today's storm count: 64)
Fugi: Good Ol' Ending U
Dandinstorm12: SUUUUB
Dandinstorm12: lrrSPOT
EikoandMog: Alex, go save and start removing chips :D
egyptcraze: hello alex! hello cam! hello chat! how are you?
Contiguouskittycat: Yeah, I maaaay need this game now. Unfortunately I need a whole bunch of games.
Hamsterhotep: @MalBeam I haven't read that yet,,,
Valdinzar24: also the best ending of the game deletes your save
Astra7525: Does the self-destruct detonate the bunker in orbit?
2Flower: 2b-senpai~
aesir_blade: End-ing-U! End-ing-U!
cuttlefishman: Are you Commander Shepard, and is this your favorite store in the Citadel?
MC_GigglePants: So, ending T or ending U first? Lol
rarermonsters: I want to see a scene where a spaceship is fighting a doomed battle and then the Captain reaches out and smashes a button that says "Self Destruct" and this causes a Bottle of scotch to emerge from his chair
Drazoth: @egyptcraze doing good here. Really glad i bought this almond cats fat pack
GDwarf: Valdinzar24: It can do so, you could also be selfish and not let it
CommiePuddin: I may have missed it: You noted the significance of the mouths being covered, is there significance to 2B and 9S having their eyes covered?
Nothing_Null_Nil: Perhaps the reason they all dress like that is because felt is the only fabric that survived the war.
Valdinzar24: @GDwarf i was'nt selfish still suprised it actually did it
ferretbadger84: Magnets?
MC_GigglePants: @commiepuddin they're blind to the teuth
egyptcraze: @drazoth whaddya grt?
Valdinzar24: not unhappy though
GDwarf: CommiePuddin: It's a call back to a character from NieR (Original Flavour) and also shows how the Androids are being blinded to the truth
MalBeam: @Hamsterhotep it's a heinlein homage about a sexbot in a solar system where humans are extinct
RoastedGravy: So RAM space?
timble4: there was something similar to this the megaman battle network games, starting with ?2?
MC_GigglePants: Or at least pretending to be blind
Drazoth: @egyptcraze in the process of finding out.
dragoon3zero: i would've enjoyed playing as 2B without a partner
GoAmpDog2: remove the OS Chip
GDwarf: CommiePuddin; That character does show up in this game, but he looks rather different, so the reference isn't clear unless you've played the original
Talin06: it literally ram space
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is there a benefit to not using all your space?
Fugi: "any time you can pause" is frustratingly not "any time"
GDwarf: dragoon3zero: 2B would also enjoy that, and the fact that it's not an option leads to her suffering some serious depression
Contiguouskittycat: So this is also a sequel to Drakengard right?
Dandinstorm12: lol
MC_GigglePants: Technically?
Macheya: Not really?
Hamsterhotep: @MalBeam : Sound strangely delightful. Glory be the sexbots!
Contiguouskittycat: This game has a really long history apparently.
GDwarf: Contiguouskittycat: Technically, yes
DirgeNovak: Don't they have words for "Access Point" in Japanese?
DigitalSeahorse: curved hallways with spiral gravity are cool
GDwarf: DirgeNovak: Welcome to the joy of loanwords
Granitefish: 21O's mail are great
KodeMage: In this world you could send a person a copy of yourself to interact with
Positivemilkhotel: Operator 6O is to precious for this rotten world
KodeMage: If you sent a fork of yourself they could have a whole conversation instead
epictyler525: hi Cam and Alex!
Rappa95: OH YEA
GoAmpDog2: jackass
Fugi: ENDING U THO
KodeMage: This would make it possible to communicate across the light speed delay of sace
wildpeaks: well you broke it
KodeMage: space*
TwoSenses: Oops
ky0dar: hey back now. did they talk about the ui?
wildpeaks: hahaha
Rappa95: ded
bv310: Awesome
Djshire: lol
Dandinstorm12: What
DigitalSeahorse: good thing you're on a 64 system
Karfsma778: Delete System32
Hamsterhotep: Was that the game credits?
EikoandMog: A-Z
Karfsma778: !highlight Delete System32
GDwarf: Mackerel Ending is best ending
Spleeniop22: Cool.
Rappa95: self destruct in the base time?
LRRbot: Highlight added.
EikoandMog: Let's get U!
Valdinzar24: the makerel is my favorite
Granitefish: The DLC adds an extra ending
sydpreviouslyheadache: ok. joke endings is what would have sold me on this game. if I had a console or could afford this game
rarermonsters: I remember how my favorite part of the Shadowrun games was reading the BBS between missions and seeing stories told by a cast of ancillary characters
GDwarf: Oh, right, self-destructing in the base is *hilarious*
TheExactSame: incidentally, auTOMata
bigb00gi3: I liked.. K, was it? the one with (S just going off on his own
TheMoatman: You get an ending for eating a mackerel
Contiguouskittycat: Reminds me of how you can die in Torment: Tides of Numenera by trying to fall faster at the beginning instead of slow down.
cuttlefishman: Mackeral Ending brings another meaning to the word... Fin...
CommiePuddin: @sydpreviouslyheadache This game is available on Steam.
SniperPumpkin: sydpreviouslyheadache, it's also on steam, fyi
aesir_blade: Do ending U now!
rarermonsters: This is strangely not unlike a weeby sci-fi version of Undertale
Karfsma778: @TheExactSame THANK YOU
EikoandMog: On the PS4, you can pet the pods.
bigb00gi3: If you click into the game and wiggle your mouse in a circle enough, you can pet it in here too
ky0dar: i would consider getting it, except i just got persona 5
bigb00gi3: it's pretty cute
GDwarf: Self Destructing while in the bunker is hilarious
MC_GigglePants: You can pet them on PC too. Just takes some fiddling
Namboto: @eikoandmog can you not pet the pods on PC?
Karfsma778: A-TOM-a-ta, not auto-mata
splatty1: you can pet the pods on pc by making a circle with your mouse
Laserbeaks_Fury: Why's the color so washed out here?
EikoandMog: I think it's a tad trickier on PC, yeah.
vagrant314: Is this game only in japanese?
Rockario: Oh, I get why these are referred to as endings. I was confused, since that was really more of a Game Over.
Fugi: I'm still missing 7 endings. Shit's hard.
Granitefish: They already missed one ending they can't get until they get Chapter select so there is no point to getting all of them
Gekyouryuu: Doctor Alex: given the existentialism and the cloud based memory filing, Yorha Units = Tachikoma?
EikoandMog: So easy to do on PS4. Just rub the touch pad and you pet the robots.
MinniChii: being kicked from the inside is weird.
TheExactSame: @karfsma778 glad we're in agreement
Namboto: @vagrant314 there's an English dub
rarermonsters: Is there anything more American than a cute girl with a huge katana saying "Hai"
EikoandMog: It's really sterile.
Karfsma778: Because the singular is A-tom-a-ton. Not auto-maton
Dandinstorm12: @rarermonsters hamburgers?
ky0dar: @vagrant314 no. alex chose Japanese for thematic resonance
Dandinstorm12: lrrBEEJ
kingslayer86: hello chat
DigitalSeahorse: they have no use for colour being androids
daneislazy: coloured dye is expensive
vagrant314: @Namboto @Ky0dar thanks I was curious if I picked it up myself
Pimptimus_Prime: Robutts don't need no colors!
Macheya: It's like that 80s commercial where the kids are in the government learning facility.
All_mankind: maybe it's some kind of robot friendly lighting that saves power
Hamsterhotep: B&W is stylistic. Sepia, even more so.
Spleeniop22: Ooo, i dig it.
Dandinstorm12: hahaha
Dandinstorm12: literally on fire
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: don't forget the black & chrome version of Mad Max
DigitalSeahorse: they can see in shades of grey?....or not see in more than black and white?
Spleeniop22: I thought sepia too.
nattsan: It accentuates lighting as well
Astra7525: man this is a weird game
Spleeniop22: I aww.
toenolla: Is there even oxygen on this station?
Spleeniop22: see*
ky0dar: @gcu_ofcourseistillloveyou i need to see that version.
Dandinstorm12: whoa
Contiguouskittycat: Fortress of lies. Subtle.
vagrant314: They are going to release a BW version of logan
wildpeaks: subtle
DigitalSeahorse: ah
cuttlefishman: LIES
EikoandMog: iirc, people used to dream in black and white once B/W TV started being a thing.
Spleeniop22: haha
OriginalGarwulf: So, a question: if the humans were all dead before the aliens arrived, then who built these androids and set them to war in the first place?
Drazoth: Drown in your liesssss
vagrant314: Looks awesome.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does YoRHA stand for something specific?
Havok4: Also the constraints to design characters that read well without color is super valuable.
TwilightAvalon: Id like to believe this area is black/white to show some sort of depiction that this isnt natural or human
Doctadoone: YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES.
Lysander_Gustav: There is an offical black&white version of Fury Road
TheLittleMakoThatCould: oh hey, i just started playing this too
EikoandMog: @Laserbeaks_Fury It does not.
GoAmpDog2: red later
Hamsterhotep: It's "Still not listening to VNV Nation"
Positivemilkhotel: @Toenolla Nope, there doesn't need to be because they're androids, not humans
jonasjonIV: thats deep
Namboto: everyone knows there's no color on
ky0dar: @lysander_gustav its called Black and Chrome because.
Namboto: the moon
Dandinstorm12: @TheLittleMakoThatCould massive spoiler warnings
EikoandMog: It was coined first in the stage play "YoRHa: Glory to Mankind."
firehazard_k: Are we stuck with the katana? Or can we get other weapons?
Djshire: TheLittleMakoThatCould you may want to leave, they're spoiling everything
MC_GigglePants: And YoRHa handles the conflict with the machines as black and white as well
Hamsterhotep: Dr Alex: I'm A Jet Now.
EikoandMog: We can get other weapons!
rarermonsters: @ Alex it could work in that, you would have to assume your programming would incorporate strong stylistic senses for you to look like you do
Gekyouryuu: Doctor Alex: given the existentialism and the cloud based memory filing, Yorha Units = Tachikoma?
TheLittleMakoThatCould: ah, ok
GDwarf: Firehazard_k: There are a dozen-odd weapons
Fugi: Katana best weapon
EikoandMog: In fact, we LOST our bigger katana.
KodeMage: YoRHa must be an intentionally ridiculus name, right?
the_living_gale: Wait a moment: if they know those models ask too many questions--which result in their destruction--why don't they just... reprogram them?
TheLittleMakoThatCould: I'm up to playthrough C myself, but i'll catch this on the VOD later
ky0dar: i need to watch stand alone complex.
nattsan: I really got play some more Shumps soon.
TheLittleMakoThatCould: o/
Dandinstorm12: cya
DigitalSeahorse: as people learn to be more "mindful" it becomes clear that all humans are misinformed through their upbringing because their parents and grandparents were misinformed
Hamsterhotep: This is like the Macross games, only good.
Anaerin: Oh, hey, Ikaruga!
rarermonsters: The games industry is too obsessed about rendering nothing perfectly
Laserbeaks_Fury: I thought Robotech:Battlecry was good
Dandinstorm12: @the_living_gale it would probably lower their efficiency
CoyoteSans: I get the sense a theme of this game is "people refusing to confront the reality of the situation, and so district themselves with comforting lies that make things worse"
ky0dar: i live the visual storytelling here
ky0dar: love
rarermonsters: @Laserbeaks_Fury Robotech: Battlecry was superb
daneislazy: wouldn't say crappy textures, good textures, crappy models, some normal maps

Contiguouskittycat: Is it Nier?

GDwarf: Emil is
Shenandygains: isnt it like the dev's CEO?
firehazard_k: WAIT WHAT
daneislazy: more likely one entity that was once human
Mysterious_Challenger: Nier never existed
Macheya: Emil's in this game?!
Contiguouskittycat: Do we get to play as Emil?

ky0dar: how are we supposed to feel about the lack of humans?
Dandinstorm12: @Djshire Red Card
TwilightAvalon: The inside joke is that these androids built by man, begin to replace man, then later "somehow" become man.

Dandinstorm12: better now
aesir_blade: Oh *** the locked chests have machine life forms locking them
