KeytarCat: Enguard sounds like a physical resistance spell
TehAmelie: En Gaurd, though, sounds like trying to reconcile En Guard and En Garde
Sarah_Serinde: Looks like a pun to me
LordZarano: En Gourd
TehAmelie: En Ford
KeytarCat: I know "guard" comes from the same root as "Guerre", but I always spell it wrong
KeytarCat: Always feels like when I can't spell "cloud" or "crowd"
KeytarCat: ooh, or "Ceiling", because "Ciel" is sky
Manae: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a deeper look at the world of video games. Game: En Guard!) at Tue 01:30 PM PDT (0s from now).
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN
KeytarCat: bwee bwee bweeeeeee~
TheAinMAP: Signal.
SnackPak_: lrrSIG
TehAmelie: lrrSIG
mwlsn: I haven't purchased it yet but I'm really hype for this game, excited to see it
mishrasbauble: sword fight!!!!
GreatWahooney: hello chat! we swordin today?
TehAmelie: i'm sure we'll have some sharp words at least
GreatWahooney: cutting remarks even
gsyhiap: Some pointed observations?
KeytarCat: Some STABSTABs?
Featherweight_: flunge!
TehAmelie: i like "sharp words" cause it spells s. words
KeytarCat: Maybe even some SATB 🎶👀
mwlsn: behold!
SnackPak_: aaaaaa
accountmadeforants: gdqAAAH sajamAaaa
CaptainSpam: aaaaaaaa
kynelwynn: AAaaaAAAaah
Rourke9: Aaaaaaahh
TheAinMAP: Hello lrrCORI lrrCAMERON
GhostValv: aaaa...?
TehAmelie: aeoiu
gsyhiap: Aaa?
ImmortalLen: Hiii!
CaptainSpam: AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!
Rourke9: Ooooh
GhostValv: D:
Rourke9: That’s. Yea. Huh
CaptainSpam: So... survivor bias, then?
Boiler_bot: Yeah, they just kept going.
Rhynerd: So, more like the whining of artillery shells?
Rourke9: Yea that sounds TERRIFYING
gsyhiap: Thankfully cannonballs are rarely employed these days...
kalira77: there's a scene in The Patriot that shows a cannonball doing that, i think
accountmadeforants: Chain Lightning but it's just a leaden ball with the zoomies
Rourke9: Yuuup
Rhynerd: Is that what the d6 with an 8 and ! Symbol is for?
Rhynerd: I have one of those in arm’s reach.
Rourke9: Oh
Rourke9: That’s poetic
Rhynerd: That is a good line.
kynelwynn: People have been playing those Fantasy Flight RPGs, huh?
RaidenFirewing: I would watch guessing dice
Earthenone: explain gaming parafinalia
Rourke9: The Fantasy Flight TTRPGs have some weeeird dice
Rourke9: The One Ring RPG has some neat dice too. That game rules fwiw
BrowneePoints: I'm very excited. Iron Pineapple(the Soulslike YTer) was very impressed with this game
QuixoticScrivener: I heard AC 6 is harder than Elden Ring.
accountmadeforants: There's a lot of Gundam bits to it, yeah
BrowneePoints: The bosses are very, very hard @QuixoticScrivener
Boopity: Suplex the train. Sword the helicopter.
Earthenone: you know what, thats fair, sword the helicopter could be a good !advice
accountmadeforants: Apparently one of the most powerful weapons is a pointy stick
TheAinMAP: RPGEpicSword SirSword
GreatWahooney: well if you can suplex a train, I don't see why not
Gaz_L: smh, Cam never played Metal Gear Rising, clearly
Rhynerd: Helicopter does not have melee weapon (presumably), therefore it cannot defend against your stabs
ImmortalLen: STABBING TIME!!!!
BrowneePoints: Yea! Iron Pineapple was pretty high on this, and he's pretty picky when it comes to Soulslike ARPGs
TheAwkes: After playing AC, AC2, AC3 and Daemon X Machina, swording helicopters is an automatic response.
CaptainSpam: Swordfighting games always need chickens. And, as per this game's title screen, it looks like we will not be disappointed.
Rhynerd: This is a game I want to get
Rourke9: Huh
KV1NN4: looove that font used to use it for my website
KV1NN4: but then angelfire died <XD
Boopity: Oh boy
Boiler_bot: sugar nyoooooom
Rourke9: I LOVE when what was once a technological limitation becomes an international aesthetic choice
gsyhiap: PJSugar
Rourke9: Like Pixel art
Rourke9: *intentional
GhostValv: ah... the sweet sweats
GreatWahooney: very very frightening!
Boiler_bot: "Unlocking Sugar Permit Level 5."
Boopity: You ever just get followed by the thunder
BrowneePoints: game audio is a LIL quiet
Rhynerd: I got followed by a Hurricane once.
GreatWahooney: yeah, could use a slight bump
CaptainSpam: Game volume could go up a bit.
gsyhiap: Handsomely mysterious, eh?
BrowneePoints: It's a Spanish Hat!
accountmadeforants: I like our goofy brother already
Rourke9: I love our little cape
TehAmelie: one time i was flanked by hail. like it started 20 meters away and then swipe down while everyone was staring in disbelief
KeytarCat: is...that our brother?
TehAmelie: swoped?
CaptainSpam: Count Duke.
mwlsn: The evil count-duke
gsyhiap: More tea, vicar-lante?
Rhynerd: @keytarcat Couldn’t be. Our brother doesn’t wear a mask!
Earthenone: cout dooku?
Featherweight_: He sounds like a sword themed MLM
BrowneePoints: why do I not remember what the hell that type of hat is called
Rourke9: You can have different titles to different holdings
TehAmelie: maybe it's like a lieutenant colonel
Rourke9: You can be a CEO to one company and CTO to another, is the analogy I would use
They_Are_Alyx: He's Batman (Zorro) looking for a Robin (Zorro Jr?)
KeytarCat: Oh no, the drift controller!
Boopity: It's impolite to recognize masked people. If you ever find yourself in this situation, keep it to yourself Kappa
gsyhiap: Is this one of Ian's modified controllers?
Gaz_L: i like that the dummies have lil mustaches
kynelwynn: There is historical precedence apparently. The Count-Duke of Olivares in 1621 - 1643
LordZarano: Put a label on that controller!
BrowneePoints: CAPITANO
Boopity: I love that Ian's modified controller has become a looming threat of sorts LUL
BrowneePoints: that's the name of the damn hat!
BrowneePoints: sorry. I have spanish ancestry and have a soft spot for their fashion and it was bugging me
bytecaster: What flavor steel are we talking about? I have preferences
KeytarCat: this looks wonderful
Juliamon: LordZarano I told them to label it in modslack *last week* so if they haven't done so yet, that's on them now
Angnor33: Ooh. Sekiro rules!
EricTheOrange: we straight up killin' fools
Earthenone: i remember kingdom hearts had nested heathbars, they were color coded too
TheAwkes: I think Sekiro's unique part was the momentum bar that would knock off a whole health bar if you were the right kind of aggressive.
BrowneePoints: I was trying to remember the specifically Spanish name for that hat, since the french version is the Cavalier
Rhynerd: Yeah
accountmadeforants: If they didn't want to get sick, maybe they should help you out ! OpieOP
BrowneePoints: While the Spanish Capitano was MUCH more restrained than the later Cavalier hats(which got VERY extra)
Rhynerd: Did the cavliers get the big fancy feathers?
bytecaster: Yeah, the controller might need some kind of shame marking for its tendency to look up, which is very ungamerlike.
gsyhiap: CoolCat
BrowneePoints: they both generally had Ostrich Plumes, but the Cavaliers got REAL extra @Rhynerd
EricTheOrange: I need to replace my old 360 controller I've been using on PC for like a decade. The D-pad already sucked when it was new.
Juliamon: Chorizo?!?!
bytecaster: Great! Now I'm hungry
BrowneePoints: excess seafood? kinda
Rourke9: That sounds yummy though
EricTheOrange: a DELICIOUS way cameron.
e_bloc: it is but it is also delicious
BrowneePoints: rice
Boopity: Much like soup
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Doesn't every culture have one of those?
e_bloc: one of the best ways to do it
Juliamon: It's hotpot but rice
bytecaster: Sock paella is only for special occasions though!
Juliamon: throw all the stuff in there
Boopity: It's Like a Dragon now
accountmadeforants: Yes, and Chorizo is also a good way to get rid of excess food, so putting it in paella would just be excessive
EricTheOrange: Paella is like the stone soup story, just throw everything in their.
Creideiki_SE: "Stir-fried random"
Rhynerd: Did the helicopter teach you nothing? Being in the air does not protect you from melee
Rourke9: This is delightfully pulpy
e_bloc: truth
BrowneePoints: it's how they gave life to older meat
Boopity: The space in "Defeated !" makes me irrationally upset LUL
Juliamon: Extra meat bits
BrowneePoints: yep. Chorizo was generally an older cuts sausage spiced up
GhostValv: extruder?
GreatWahooney: aww!
Thisbymaster: I don't call her that
Ryxiene: FBtouchdown
CaptainSpam: Instant GOTY.
e_bloc: I don't know that sausage pumper would work
EricTheOrange: I assume you end up with like extra meat bits after you've sold all the prime cuts and then turn those extra meat scraps into sausage.
BrowneePoints: Pretty much @EricTheOrange
Juliamon: A sausage pumper is a different thing
BrowneePoints: it was a way to take less good cuts or older cuts and mix it with spices to give it some more life
gsyhiap: Boss baby mayor
bytecaster: Baby major is the sequel to boss baby
BrowneePoints: Also speaking of Capitano Hats, Cam has the perfect Face shape AND hair to pull one off
accountmadeforants: Listen, someone's gotta leave college with 20 years experience, and it's gonna be that baby
TehAmelie: sausage compacter?
MAPBoardgames: I he a count or a duke? I'm confused.
TehAmelie: he is either both or neither
Rhynerd: Yes?
Earthenone: im convinced they are Count Dooku
BrowneePoints: You can be a count and a duke
Boopity: LUL
MAPBoardgames: @BrowneePoints this is true.
Boopity: It is now that I realize I do not know what a count OR a duke actually is
BrowneePoints: Basically a Count-Duke is someone who combined their Countship AND Dukedom
bytecaster: Both are made up, so why not be both
TehAmelie: i like that the guards have a hand at their side like they're not really trying
Faulpyr: What real life needs is i-frames
Juliamon: Count, Duke, either way they have a title and that makes them bourgeoisie
TheAinMAP: Duke of Wales?
Rhynerd: So, we are fighting the double-Bourgeois
xVoxtric: I imagine duke is like a close cousin to the king, in terms of relative power
TehAmelie: meanwhile anyone can call themselves esquire
EricTheOrange: I assume as this is non-lethal in the way most children's adventure stories are. like we are knocking these soldiers out with are sharp pointy stick.
bytecaster: What kind of moves can a duke or count do in chess though if they are that close to the king?
Ryxiene: Relative power indeed Kappa @xVoxtric
KeytarCat: It's a game about positioning and reading, less about fast reactions, so it looks
xVoxtric: bytecaster like a king but TWO squares in any direction
Rhynerd: Probably just a little less than a queen @bytecaster
BrowneePoints: Yep, Duke & Duchess, Marquess & Marchioness, Earl/Count & Countess, Viscount & Viscountess, Baron & Baroness. Highest to lowest @LoadingReadyRun
BrowneePoints: and then of course that changes depending on country, such as Spain having Don/Donna
MAPBoardgames: All of the noble titles relate to land. Better titles is larger/more important land.
Earthenone: they are into it
TehAmelie: i likes me a viscous viscount
BrowneePoints: I LOVE that this is a Soulslike that leans into environmental stuff as a way to be unique
bytecaster: This game looks delightful!
Rourke9: 20 bucks
Juliamon: I love the lightheartedness of everything
Earthenone: i think you misunderstand, getting kicked into the water by a woman IS the bribe
Boopity: This game's presentation and sense of humor is delightful so far
accountmadeforants: "Be a tutorial enemy, good pay, no coverage, great view"
TehAmelie: that guy, dead
bytecaster: That's one way to use a halberd.
BrowneePoints: Ya can't be a swashbuckling game without a sense of Humor and Lightheardedness!
TehAmelie: does it just say "reward"? sounds cheap
KeytarCat: "I paid money for this hat! Well, it's an expensive hat"
BrowneePoints: Although an American invention, I still do love that Zorro is TECHNICALLY the first Comic Book Superhero
SnackPak_: FBtouchdown
TheAwkes: This seems like a very good tutorial.
TehAmelie: closely modeled on Scarlet Pimpernel, who i think counts as the first superhero of all
bytecaster: They really should put in a chapter in the guard training manual about not fighting with their back to the water.
Gekyouryuu: Which came first? Zorro or The Scarlet Pimpernel?
accountmadeforants: I see this game also has wall-slump routes sajamFs
Gekyouryuu: nvm, answered as I was asking
Boopity: Good sound
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie Ooo just looked that up. predates zorro by a decade. Nice catch!
EricTheOrange: @BrowneePoints I mean how do we define comic books. are like radio dramas like the shadow comicbook heros?
MAPBoardgames: The parkor seems light and easy
bytecaster: Ha, jokes on you, we never tire, we don't even have a stamina bar!
accountmadeforants: I do like that the enemies actually gang up on you, forces you to use the kick-ables
bytecaster: I wonder if we could have kicked someone into the well
CaptainSpam: I would be amused if it turns out the "training" is the entire length of the game.
BrowneePoints: @EricTheOrange I believe it's due to the themes of the stories and the character archetypes. TehAmelie may have more insight
BrowneePoints: a lot of the first "comic book heroes" like Superman are in some way modeled after Zorro
TehAmelie: nah i just memorized that about the Scarlet Pimpernel in order to argue superheroes were made up by a woman
Angnor33: Tell that to Poe. :P
accountmadeforants: Sadly, we are not Ob Nixilis
AnjaBech subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 17 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, AnjaBech! (Today's storm count: 22)
Rhynerd: We’d probably have to hold them down for that and I don’t think that’d be properly swashbucklery
Boopity: That crate was an absolute menac
KeytarCat: Blink is the reset cue, I think?
EricTheOrange: I remember in my classical mythology class they talked about how Greek Heroes were meant to embody virtues of the people at the time. Strong, smart, leaders of men. they made that a parallel to superheros of today.
e_bloc: Corgo100 Corgo100 Corgo100 Corgo1 Corgo1 Corgo1
accountmadeforants: Might be Monster Hunter i-frames
KeytarCat: poetry
bytecaster: Where could it be safer than a guards belly.
NorthstarTex: Cerveza is important...for morale
TehAmelie: someone mentioned the game was all positioning. suppose it's forcing you to be more active than reactive, with the lack of instant dodges
QuixoticScrivener: Waiting for you to fight the first person with a long sword.
BrowneePoints: but yea if you go diving into it you'll find a lot of research down on how Zorro set the dna for "masked dual life vigilante fighting for what's right" pulp adventure stories. @EricTheOrange
Boopity: I really enjoy the emphasis on the use of environment so far
BrowneePoints: Bob kane credits him for inspiring Batman, but Bob Kane is also kind of a lying douche so mileage may vary @EricTheOrange
accountmadeforants: Samurai Gun?
accountmadeforants: Yeeee
Rourke9: Yea this is very well done group combat. Which is a tricky issue
Neddy471: The game looks really fun, but that font... ICK. It's just awful.
accountmadeforants: Many fighting games also do that and never stops being cool
e_bloc: funny I actually was just thinking the font was a nice change of pace
TehAmelie: have we met anyone we haven't cartoonishly murdered yet?
accountmadeforants: @Neddy471 They may have turned on the Ultralegible font
Boopity: LUL
EricTheOrange: "marvel of taxation"?
Rourke9: One of my old professors worked on AI for Red Dead Redemption. For the wolves, if they were being realistic they would encircle and take turns attacking from behind - but that was frustrating and no fun. So instead you heard the growls and stuff behind you, but they always attacked from in front
TehAmelie: is his hat bent the other way from ours?
Neddy471: @accountmadeforants That would make sense. But there has to be a better way to make something legible: Especially the way that the dot of the "i" sits in the middle of the preceding F.
TehAmelie: huge nemesis vibe if so
Rhynerd: Ah, they teach you that earlier than when they taught it in the demo
TehAmelie: curved carpets? i want those
Rourke9: That’s a great touch
Boopity: O-Oh my god, you're right those carpets are curved. Mind: blown
loufghyslaufey: Counting Do-Doots •>
QuixoticScrivener: The objective pop ups seem out of place, compared to the rest of the UI.
EricTheOrange: "Mr.Bucket, you put the balls in my mouth"
Land_Manatee: Looks like a joy
TehAmelie: i like games that simulate the player character having skills that make it easy to do things a regular player would have trouble with, like effortlessly lobbing a bucket on someone's head
Boopity: At the very least, the combat _looks_ very snappy and responsive
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ho! Ha-ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust...
Earthenone: if i ever designed a game i would attract the players attention with arrows, i would have arrows fly at them from off screen in the direction they should be going
TehAmelie: his hat brim goes up on the left, ours to the right. nemesis confirmed
They_Are_Alyx: "Definitely not your brother"
e_bloc: glad we sworded that out
Clockwork_Penguin: Ooh,this looks really cool
Rhynerd: That boy can really stab
TehAmelie: i'd like to SWORD you a question
e_bloc: A+
MAPBoardgames: Anyone can wave a sharp piece of metal around. But the pros. They know how to cut their opponent with an insult.
Rourke9: IRL rapiers do have rather high burst damage
Rourke9: Lethal, some might say
Boopity: Cori gaming!
Rourke9: I really love how you have to maintain pressure
QuixoticScrivener: The items seem effective for keeping stagger from regenerating.
bytecaster: Crate blindness is a real condition and nothing to make fun of!
e_bloc: eff it just cast fireballl
MAPBoardgames: Just what every boss fight needs: Adds!
bytecaster: Did somebody say lunch?
Rourke9: Bro can’t even help us against the guards first? Smh
Boopity: For real, I kinda wish they targetted him as well
accountmadeforants: !humble
LRRbot: LRR is a Humble Partner! Go to and LRR will get a cut of any purchase you make at Humble.
Rhynerd: Lad had to fall too early
bytecaster: I mean, when swords are involved, loosing is not always a way to learn.
Boopity: Sheesh THIRD time in a week?
James_the_Dabbler: Count-duke?
KeytarCat: Throat armor
itsalongrun: gorget
gsyhiap: Just minding my own business, by which I mean I was swordfighting some chumps...
sfn____: armored cravat?
Clockwork_Penguin: Wait, so is he a count named Duke?
TehAmelie: this "suddenly we're in prison" cut was even more sudden than the one in in Nimona. impressive
Juliamon: He is a Count AND a Duke
TotallyNotaBeholder: Google agrees with cam, looks like a beaver
Land_Manatee: Bevor
Gekyouryuu: He's a Duke where it counts
TotallyNotaBeholder: Sorry, bevor, Land_Manatee has the spelling right
BrowneePoints: yep Bevor! cuz it comes "BEFORE" the neck
TehAmelie: sedition? did we proclaim the downfall of nobility or something?
MAPBoardgames: Parchisi board on the top shelf
TehAmelie: wow, great spot
Land_Manatee: That's a shame
BrowneePoints: It's definitely worth the watch
TehAmelie: it's fairly amazing
QuixoticScrivener: So I’m familiar with counts and dukes. But can someone explain a Count-Duke? Is that like. Lieutenant-Captain? Or a Co-Pilot-Pilot?
Bruceski: It's weird to call a movie with that subject matter lovely, but the movie is lovely.
BrowneePoints: Shawshank is PROBABLY the best Stephen King adaptation
BrowneePoints: period
accountmadeforants: @QuixoticScrivener Someone who is both a Count of something and a Duke of a different thing
Bruceski: Definitely up there.
Rourke9: @quixoticscrivener sometimes people have different titles for different holdings. That’s my guess as to what’s happening here
BrowneePoints: @QuixoticScrivener basically he combined his County and his Dukedom
Land_Manatee: Ah, such finesse
MAPBoardgames: I love that line in Control about Shawshank
empyreon: no bulli BibleThump
Rhynerd: Damn, straight up tabled that man
SnackPak_: lrrWOW
Bruceski: Yeah, Stephen King writes like ten times as many things as anyone thinks he does.
BrowneePoints: there's a COUPLE historical examples of Count-Dukes
bytecaster: "Catch, catch, catch, why are you not catching it?"
TehAmelie: maybe he's both the count and the duke of the town, so he can't just go by the higher title
James_the_Dabbler: Are you a fencer or a wrestler?
Land_Manatee: Ooh, maybe a lantern shield
Rhynerd: I can answer that question if you want
Gekyouryuu: Family Guy actually raised an interesting point: how did he reattach the poster so well after entering the hole?
BrowneePoints: i like how snappy the hits feel
QuixoticScrivener: Gonna fire-up Crusader Kings and plant my Duke-King.
BrowneePoints: feels right for a Raiper/Epee
accountmadeforants: Apparently Count-Dukes were mainly (but still rarely) a thing in Spain. While Portugal had some Count-Barons :p
MAPBoardgames: I just noticed the two red !, one of them is (properly) inverted.
SnackPak_: neat
TehAmelie: ooh there should be a crossover that generates maps for this game based on Crusader KIngs games
accountmadeforants: And apparently Dolphin is also a hereditary title :)
gsyhiap: miiliFire
TehAmelie: very stylish
Rhynerd: So, we could have a Count Dolphin?
sfn____: Pretty good fire!
Land_Manatee: Very fitting for the art style
MAPBoardgames: GlitchLit
Boopity: Das some tasty shaders
accountmadeforants: gdqFire
TehAmelie: that's how you become the king of Hades. gotta put your head on fire
Rourke9: Charles V is the classic example of someone with a grab-bag of different titles in different holdings
Boopity: This poor lackey
Rhynerd: Poor lackey
TehAmelie: ah, the henchmen are terrified of us now
Boopity: This is the rest of stream now
accountmadeforants: Water+Bottle trick :)
SquareDotCube: Already getting PoP Sands of Time vibes, minus the wall running
Juliamon: goodbye forever
Rhynerd: Out of lanterns
bytecaster: Is the neighbor a fish?
Rhynerd: yes
Boopity: More lives :D
TehAmelie: this many barrels and no mooks to kick them into? should be illegal
MWGNZ: PowerUpL rayfkSanic PowerUpR fire
BrowneePoints: No
accountmadeforants: Grandmadier
BrowneePoints: a Grannydier
Boopity: Oh my god I love her
bytecaster: I'm sure that Grenadier is not flammable at all
Boopity: Slay
Land_Manatee: That's... the same voice acator, right?
Earthenone: grandma is fire soluble
TehAmelie: ranged enemies who try to stay at range? oh my
Dog_of_Myth: Get rekt granny
Rhynerd: “What does a Grenadier do?” “besides explode?”
Boiler_bot: "Go back to your cell." "Okay."
KV1NN4: 'gran'idier?? XD
Rourke9: Grenade, derived from the word pomegranate, or ‘seed/grain apple’
Rourke9: Bc they are full of shrapnel
Laserbeaks_Fury: can you toss the naes back
Laserbeaks_Fury: *nades
Boopity: This game seems to be doing an awesome job of visualizing enemy attacks. One of my biggest gripes with 90% of action games is that can't tell a damn thing that's happening with all of the excessively ostentatious VFX and flashing lights
Lord_Hosk: Chat Quick! the food truck we were going to go to for dinner broke down... Where should we get dinner!
Boopity: She's kiting :(
Earthenone: find the broken down truck?
Pharmacistjudge: Tacos
TehAmelie: should be easy to catch if it's broken down eh
bytecaster: I do like that the grenadiers are not even a little concerned with avoiding friendly fire.
Boopity: As they should be Kappa
Boopity: That was a loong soundbite for dying LUL
codatski: We're having street tacos tonight, so I'm with Pharmacistjudge here
James_the_Dabbler: Why do they look and sound like Purah
Rhynerd: It seems the best solution to a grenadier is a lantern
bytecaster: That's rude, they are still in their golden years!
TehAmelie: i like their extremely dramatic death scene that looks so fake you can be really sure you did not actually kill the granny
Earthenone: why would they bring explosions to the painting room
Boopity: It's all about the painting-explosion synergy

Boopity: Whoa
TehAmelie: livin on the ledge
raulghoulia: never punished
Rhynerd: they say the Count-Duke’s men are made of metal. That is not true. That is just all the shrapnel in them.
kusinohki: meows
bytecaster: @Rhynerd They meant to say, the Count-Duke's men are magnetic, easy mistake to make
kusinohki: what have I missed?
Boopity: Why has Teresa been blowing up walls???
anne_r_kist: Something something "inquisition"
Earthenone: this is blighttown, the early years
raulghoulia: i highly doubt this community sees a lot of civic improvement from their taxes
Boopity: Adalia spitting
Land_Manatee: Very Shawshank
Earthenone: good shawshank reference
TehAmelie: this is where the other prisoner from Portal went
kusinohki: early elevators using prisoners as counter weights??
Laserbeaks_Fury: Rock hammer
Boopity: Oooh, the jump to ledge grab is very much appreciated
dumbo3k: yeah, tiny rock hammer, used it to make some chess pieces
bytecaster: Everbody knows you have to keep your prisoners constantly in motion to prevent them getting any ideas
TehAmelie: they gotta put the oubliette somewhere
Earthenone: i was not expecting kicking the red barrels to work out for you
Lysander_salamander: Hello everyone
Boopity: I wonder how much it would mess with one's sense of balance if they were let out after being stuck in those moving cages for weeks
BrowneePoints: Palatial
TehAmelie: about 0.5 square km
bytecaster: What have those chickens done?
Boopity: Chicken crimes PogChamp
Earthenone: they were arrested for attemping a coop
BrowneePoints: I think I spelled that right
Mind2Waste: free the chickens!
They_Are_Alyx: Chicken liberation!
Boopity: @bytecaster You do not want to know.
MAPBoardgames: Those hens tried to overthrow the count-duke in a chicken coup
TehAmelie: no idea how many floors and everything that could cover
Amentur: Half a square kilometer. So there are 2 popes per km²

MAPBoardgames: Chickens are team players, they love co-op games
TehAmelie: i think she's saying use your pwoer attack

bytecaster: She cleverly has no buckets in her room, that's how you know she's a professional!
anne_r_kist: Splat
Mangledpixel: you could fit approximately 40 Vatican Cities inside Victoria BC city limits

Mangledpixel: not sure why it wouldn't be feasible
Boopity: She took "parry this you filthy casual" to heart
Mangledpixel: she's like the Borg
Mangledpixel: she adapts
Rhynerd: I wonder if tossing a thing and then kicking something else would break guard
KeytarCat: @Rhynerd the yellow mark means they can be kicked
Boopity: We do love a big muscular lady
KeytarCat: It's a positioning game!
Land_Manatee: Did you need to hit her 2x in a row or something?
raulghoulia: more meat
bytecaster: Less buckets!
Boopity: It doesn't seem to try and be soulslike in any way either. With the way it just instantly respawns you in the room you're attempting, it seems more like they want you to "figure the room out"
KeytarCat: @Boopity Puzzle combat game
Boopity: @KeytarCat What a delightful way to put it
Rhynerd: Is that a triple explosive barrel stack?
accountmadeforants: They've towed the kickables out of the environment.
MAPBoardgames: This game play reminds me a lot of early assassin's creed
KeytarCat: You do have a long poke, it's the left super
TehAmelie: no i think this avoids being a soulslike more aggressively than any swordfighty game i've seen since, hm, Dark Souls
Boiler_bot: Good ol' GM cannon fodder
Rhynerd: If only the cannon was still loaded
KeytarCat: opened a kick oportunity
MAPBoardgames: "You fight like a kitten!" "How appropriate, you fight like a string!"
Boopity: @MAPBoardgames This is the retort you think of later while you're in the shower
Boiler_bot: @MAPBoardgames Oh, that's a good one.
anne_r_kist: Oh...
MAPBoardgames: We need to clip both scenes of going through the hole in the wall for the highlights
KeytarCat: There's no penalty for dying, sooo
TehAmelie: le riposte d'escalier, or how doe sit go?
TehAmelie: does
anne_r_kist: Good
Juliamon: These devs are French, so they probably have access to actual Spanish folks
ghyllnox: This is a Spanish Spanish accent, not a Mexican Spanish one
FormOfSquirrel: This is definitely a much better Spain-Spanish accent.
Land_Manatee: I wonder if there's anything like with Appalachians having the most authentic old English accents?
ghyllnox: Speaking as someone who's been taught Spanish by both a Spaniard and a Mexican
BrowneePoints: yea Penelope Cruz is Andalusian
Snowwraith: Famously the original Resident Evil 4, set in Spain, was full of Mexican Spanish.
ghyllnox: @snowwraith LUL
TehAmelie: soiled your loins? that's the weirdest thing i've heard all week and yesterday was Glurp day
ghyllnox: I bet everyone loved that
BrowneePoints: the biggest difference is in c/s pronunciation for castilian/andalusian
Boopity: LUL
TehAmelie: now they think we're a t-rex
Boopity: The enemy quips are top tier
BrowneePoints: Hilariously, from the site "Language Trainers Canada" 'Unlike Castilian, Andalusian Spanish is distinguished by the pronunciation of the letters Z and C as S, a phenomenon known as seseo. What does this mean? That whereas in Castilian Spanish casa and caza are pronounced in different ways (kasa, katha), in Andalusian they sound exactly the same.' @LoadingReadyRun
kusinohki: weird thought - add a whip and we're really close to a Zorro game here...
BrowneePoints: Probably! Just regional variations through linguistics evolution
Lysander_salamander: hello everyone
TehAmelie: the grenadiers do help you a lot eh
Lysander_salamander: how is the game so far?
They_Are_Alyx: @kusinohki The game is already very Zorro
TehAmelie: granny nady
Mangledpixel: Granny Ada
TheAwkes: Granadier
They_Are_Alyx: Granadier is an S-tier pun
TehAmelie: dang liberals trying to take away granny's bombs
BrowneePoints: but yea I love how much snappier the combat is to accentuate that you're a fencer/using a rapier
KeytarCat: Fun thing: Dialects don't exist in a meaningful way! Linguists try to use "Variant" instead of dialect
BrowneePoints: unlike sekiro etc where the strikes are long to accentuate a single side blade
TehAmelie: Adalia Wallace is fifteen feet tall
TehAmelie: oh wait
MAPBoardgames: We're huge in Spain
Boopity: @KeytarCat Is the difference that rather than implying a regional thing, it's more general?
Mangledpixel: has there ever been a scifi tv show that HASN'T used 'Tabula Rasa' as an episode title?
TehAmelie: hmm maybe Dollhouse cause there it's more the whole show's subtitle
Laserbeaks_Fury: Count-Duke has good internet
TehAmelie: ooh somebody's doing a sedition
MAPBoardgames: "Not only do I have a price. I've discovered it's actually quite competitive." -Cameron
MrQBear: "I told her to stay in jail, and she DIDN'T"
TehAmelie: or his teeth?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are rude paintings libel or slander?
Mind2Waste: with a gauntlet on
TehAmelie: weird things to do with a gauntled on in any case
Boopity: two in the nose, one in the ear?
kusinohki: pompous portrait pyromaniac - someone had fun coming up with that
Boopity: LUL
Boopity: Good achievo
CaptainSpam: It's clear this team had a lot of fun making this.
KeytarCat: @Boopity yeah! Also there's some implied hierarchy when you talk about Language v. Dialect, and that's something we like to avoid when we can
They_Are_Alyx: Adds NotLikeThis
Laserbeaks_Fury: I believe that legally qualifies as proof of lying
MAPBoardgames: It had a couple of beers before the fight, yes.
Boopity: @KeytarCat Ah, neat! Thanks for the reply!
TehAmelie: nice recovery
Boopity: FBtouchdown
Land_Manatee: With his pants down
Boiler_bot: Nice
Jensling: As someone over 30, I too die on my way up the stairs
TehAmelie: i don't know what that sausage in the hand signifies but it feels more insulting than "Hanzo main"
Laserbeaks_Fury: ohhh Mandatory Parcheesi
TehAmelie: classic one, guard
TehAmelie: yeah that was entirely on purpose
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh hey, a Lute table
Rhynerd: Are those lutes on that table?
Rhynerd: Can you El Kabong a baddie?
Boopity: The grenadiers are a pure agent of chaos
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Agatha, STOP HELPING!"
KeytarCat: The grenadiers seem to be having fun
TehAmelie: the grenadiers remind me of having the Jinxed trait in Fallout. everyone gets more critical failures, and there's more bad guys than there are of you, so it should work in your favor, probably
Boopity: Oooh, so this is like a roguelike mode of sorts?
KeytarCat: ooh, the jaunty hat fellas recharge stagger on a backstep
Rhynerd: can tossing a bomb at a cannon set the cannon off?
Boopity: Good crate
KeytarCat: nooo! jaunty hat man got the recharge!
TehAmelie: i like that you technically don't attack downed enemies, since they immediately stand up after you hit them
zhejjj: I played the demo. En Garde is fantastically fun
KeytarCat: yellow mark means kick, red means crit opportunity
KeytarCat: yeah, I bet jaunty hat fellas are switches
TehAmelie: my favorite zinger so far was a guard going "i didn't slip, that was a dodge, nobody laugh"
Rhynerd: Oh, there’s a cannon fuse next to each fire thing i forgot the name of
Rhynerd: Was it brazier or is that the undergarment?
Boopity: Emilio noooo
TehAmelie: it was a spanish word that sounds a bit like brazier
Anubis169: That's pretty much how it went historically
Boopity: LUL
Boopity: The explosives and people flying off is ✨
TehAmelie: "i was hiding my money there" is my new favorite
Boopity: There's _so many_ of these zingers. What a fantastic game
Mangledpixel: entirely without pec
Boopity: Oh we got chaos goblin grandmas
CaptainSpam: EL KABONG!
KeytarCat: I want her to comment on poise
Rhynerd: If all else fails, toss a lantern on her
Boopity: Oooh that was a fun animation
CaptainSpam: Armbar.
EricTheOrange: gard bard
TehAmelie: erhmegerd guardbar
TehAmelie: that's right granny it's a conspiracy against you personally
KeytarCat: You have to get a hard stun for wine. I think kicking down stairs and the like do that
EricTheOrange: "we exclusively hire old ladies to handle our explosives."
Rhynerd: Can you get El Vigilante on fire?
Earthenone: that lute looks interactable
TehAmelie: he's too clever to let his pants catch fire
SquareDotCube: Rampart grenadier
KeytarCat: you have to do consistent damage
Critterbot: Should probably take out the grenadier first.
TehAmelie: well, he's half dead
Boopity: Grandma just did the ol "accidentaly dodge into a wall"
CaptainSpam: I like how they do one-liners to set up environmental attacks AND to hint that they're available.
140 raiders from benjamin_wheeler have joined!
KeytarCat: get that stagger bar up!
Boiler_bot: Oooooooh
CaptainSpam: Yeah, looks like his regen happens when you use the wrong counter to his attack.
Invitare: his name is Malenia, Blade of Miquella
Boopity: YES
CaptainSpam: Done!
Lysander_salamander: yay
FormOfSquirrel: lmao
Boopity: Perfect end
Forgotten_Lizard: seabatClap seabatClap
NikoSpud: I mean, that works
Boopity: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
Mangledpixel: perfect finish
Boopity: He gaming
Amentur: charly23Dab Still counts
ZachtlyAsIntended: collision physics are....great.
TotallyNotaBeholder: Just like you drew it up
TehAmelie: full Looney Tunes finish lrrAWESOME
Earthenone: where was the clown horn for that final shot?
Ryxiene: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
Land_Manatee: Gotta use those environments, lol

They_Are_Alyx: Are know?
CaptainSpam: Yeah, can't blame 'im.
xantos69: So, how's this game going?
Gekyouryuu: "I don;t know the meaning of the word!" "oh, well, let me teach you." "curse you! you've robbed me the ability to succeed due to ignorance!"
TehAmelie: dual wielding a large roast turkey and a rapier, that's new

iris_of_ether: I feel like I've played this character in Seventh Sea :D
TehAmelie: definitely recycle the chicken. recycle it right into !advice, that's my advice
Rhynerd: can we quote “How many heads can this Chicken go in? Let’s go check!”?
TehAmelie: when you wear a chicken on your head, you're wearing everyone that chicken has worn on its butt
Daedalus423: This game does look like a lot of fun
Rhynerd: I should probably head out now, I have a thing to attend
Rhynerd: Thanks for the stream! Hope ya’ll enjoy the rest of it!
TehAmelie: a pokey sword
Gekyouryuu: maybe it's a sewing needle and we're really tiny?
FormOfSquirrel: It's got that light, agile, "swashbuckling" quality, whereas Sekiro is very weighty.
xantos69: Yep, Saber, Epee, & Foil. Want the full history?
KeytarCat: smallsword is what you put on under your sword!
xantos69: Epee is anywhere on the body counts. Foil is torso only. Saber is waist up. (Not thighs) Fenced for 9 years so really sure on that.

kamilucky: i would be funny if it was Mcu style "Well THAT just happened."
bytecaster: Quick witty exchanges also mirror the kind of combat we are engaging in, kinda
TehAmelie: i think that enemy got the POINT
bytecaster: So it feels congruent to me
sfn____: @bytecaster Absolutely! There's a reason dnd bards have a "college of swords" subclass
sfn____: Sharp sword, sharp tongue
asthanius: They stooged themselves
Boopity: Not really using controllers a lot, I was actually quite surprised to find out that a lot of games use bumpers for attack
arkham1981: Speaking of voice actors, hearing Mark Hamill in the latest Futurama episode was wonderful.
bytecaster: I thought monday was Shrek day on this channel?
TehAmelie: hey, they said the thing
TehAmelie: that's what he gets for standing on the couch
Boopity: Sick burn Cam LUL
bytecaster: Is one of the elites stuck on the dresser?
bytecaster: Not very elite of them
Boopity: Who needs to read when you're good at video games?
bytecaster: Why read when you can parry?
iris_of_ether: !venga
LRRbot: To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield to the oncoming Venga Bus.
Boon_33: is oncoming venga bus redundent?
Boon_33: boom baby
bytecaster: Terrible canon discipline, really
Boon_33: safety standards were different back then.
Lysander_salamander: I like they are playing dead
Lysander_salamander: yay
empyreon: YES FBtouchdown
Boon_33: I want to swing....

Gekyouryuu: thank goodness the count-duke is ostentatious
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I can only imagine how long the lackey VAs were in the booth
TehAmelie: rapier wits: the game
Lysander_salamander: I like how they compliment each other's swordplay now and then.
e_bloc: I thought that game looked like a lot of fun
TehAmelie: and the grenade grans know they're hardly helping and they're fine with it
Mangledpixel: is there a disarming mechanic?
xantos69: Well game looks sweet. Hope to see more of this.
They_Are_Alyx: We also haven't seen the chin tilt yet
Lysander_salamander: yay
KeytarCat: Cam likes Knowing!
Feriority: Chin tilt is for duels with a rival, not for scub guards
protojman: The winter soldier hs a scene where a cop car shows up on scene already on fire. Always gives me a laugb
KeytarCat: oh that's hot
Feriority: *scrub
TehAmelie: and then they have to say "what's your point?" "i think you SEE my point"
TehAmelie: it's the law
Gekyouryuu: they'll beat you not because you're weak, but because they're strong
TheAwkes: Being in the room while a burning man stunt took place was two of the most stressful minutes of my life. There's something visceral about a person being engulfed in flames, even when executed by professionals.
Juliamon: Queer female protag without any comments about it, very nice
