TXC2: hello raiders
Hewdra: soon thoe!
beowuuf: you won't miss a moment of wheeler :)
benjamin_wheeler: Me to James before putting this on the schedule: "Remember, you asked for this"
benjamin_wheeler: "This is what you wanted, Turner"
Tom_Bruise: Can we honestly expect James to know what he asks for whenever he asks for anything?
Traion: I believe you asked for this PiF playthrough Wheeler
DarkMorford: I thought James asked for ice cream
beowuuf: look, James volunatily listened to caillou both 69 and 420 times and forced his chat and mods to listen to, James does not always make good decisions :p
TXC2: !addquote (Wheeler) [now] This is what you wanted, Turner.
LRRbot: New quote #7750: "This is what you wanted, Turner." —Wheeler [2021-08-29]
Traion: James continues to sing Calliou while he is being sprayed with a water bottle to stop. He makes a lot of questionable decisions
accountmadeforants: Oh, right, Ben, you can only change languages from the main menu (not mid-game). So do you want a warning for the last bonfire before you hit horse lad?
TXC2: that quote is gonna be evergreen for Mine O'clock
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
benjamin_wheeler: @accountmadeforants please
accountmadeforants: SeemsGood
benjamin_wheeler: well I can just quit save right?
accountmadeforants: Yeah
Traion: The way the game autosaves you can just quit save

Saphling: rison shine

Traion: @accountmadeforants I assume we are gonna be in Estate for a while until Ben gets gud
beowuuf: Is this your forward?
Psychic_Ketchup: "There's nothing I like more than [...] taking amphetamines" Kappa
accountmadeforants: Certainly possible, though he's got decent pace so far.
Half_Duplex: 4 weeks? you got a therapist on retainer?
Traion: NG+ in this is great fun
mowdownjoe: Might want to keep Adam on retainer.

CaptainSask: 5 Month streak, sigh, I've literally been watching LRR since 2005, just can't seem to remember to click the Bezo's Bux button
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, CaptainSask! (Today's storm count: 6)
beowuuf: I tested it, then OBS happened
Saphling: spiping
TXC2: yesterday was a bit Rocky 5, Today will be Bit Rocky 3 Kappa
Didero: Also I already forgot the audio issues and only remember the good times
smashy_030: ah the agony game
Saphling: a couple of episodes in the beginning before the 30-ep flashback starts...
CaptainSask: This is my first time looking at the menu and I already know I need this game.
accountmadeforants: You got your sugar, your brown sugar, your baker's sugar, your "sugar"
TXC2: !backseat
LRRbot: Please refrain from backseat gaming unless the streamer asks for help. The streamer wants to play the game the way they want. Feel free to discuss tactics in chat or with the mods.
accountmadeforants: !backseat
LRRbot: Please refrain from backseat gaming unless the streamer asks for help. The streamer wants to play the game the way they want. Feel free to discuss tactics in chat or with the mods.
Traion: @captainsask It is one of Adam's favourite games of all time
Didero: Can I at least shout dumb suggestions based on zero game experience?
Traion: " Hey Chat" is the safeword

smashy_030: lt to sword
Psychic_Ketchup: Or type your message, and then delete it
Symphoneers: Wheeler's studied the blade dayCool
TXC2: or ask lrrbot Like I do
CaptainSask: @Traion So I can blame Adam for this, just like I do for the fact I'm playing like 2-3 hours at least a day of Darkest Dungeon? Cool.
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Don't stay in the blood.
accountmadeforants: Nothing hurts Sol Badguy
Didero: "Stabbings kill the man"
Kaorti: Sword? Try pyromancy!
smashy_030: im sorry ben, nothing hurt bad guy
CaptainSask: Sword emotionally hurt bad guy.
Anubis169: Please no help unless asked for, no hints, tips, suggestions. No unsolicited outside assistance of any kind. That includes leading questions or "Why hasn't he..." style ones too
Traion: @captainsask Adam streams a playthrough of this every year
TXC2: Hi Anubis169
TXC2: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
Anubis169: hihi TXC2 <3
beowuuf: that seems more like bloodborne advice lrrbot, wrong souls game :(
Saphling: hurt badguy is sword's purpose in life
ContingentCat: !badadvice
LRRbot: Get a crystal for all your bathing suit zone purposes.
MagicalAttackGecko: <message deleted>have we fought loud horse boi yet?
CaptainSask: @Traion What? How have I missed that?
djalternative: No. Sword don't hurt bad guy?
Anubis169: that includes questions like "Have we fought XYZ yet", because if we haven't, that's a spoiler
BusTed: Haha.
jRoy7: This works out because I've never watched this game before. :)
Traion: @captainsask I think you joined during his recent Darkest Dungeon obsession^^
ContingentCat: Making up for lost time?
TXC2: !findquote worst
LRRbot: Quote #7273: "James, I need you to not be the worst." —Graham [2020-10-09]
ArkhamArchivist: Hit bad guy with sword. Don't get hit by bad guy sword.
beowuuf: LOL, lrrbot saving wheeler some sass
Anubis169: (nothing personal MagicalAttackGecko <3 )
MagicalAttackGecko: But anubis, he literally asked about that directly yesterday...
Didero: I forget, we did go back to get the axe installed, right?
Anubis169: wasn't here yesterday for that
vegetalss4: I just watched the VOD, we did.
MagicalAttackGecko: +1
vegetalss4: I say just as Wheeler show it.
Traion: @anubis169 he knows about loud horse boi and has asked us to warn him so he can change languages
Tom_Bruise: You will be left to live, and to love, but being left to laugh is something else entirely
Anubis169: roger that
Tom_Bruise: That's what we're here for; Memes and RHCP deep cuts
Didero: Being this naked in the rain can't be good for your health
thraximore: It's the past, being naked is kinda the uniform
accountmadeforants: Fantasy rules, more skin = more power
ContingentCat: in the game as in life, naked guys are the more annoying
accountmadeforants: For one of them, yes, the Mikiri Counter
Psychic_Ketchup: He just kicked sand, rude
Didero: Oh, I only just realised that the facecam is in the other corner. Are you trying to hide your health from us?
Anubis169: Didero: So the ninja misdirection is working manLURK
accountmadeforants: it's a surprise for chat
azureHaights: Three health values: "Okay," "Oh shit" and "Well, fuck"
Tom_Bruise: But Ben, how else is chat supposed to scream at you to heal up?
manwiththegoldencard: but even if you're dead, you're dead twice
Didero: You've survived fights with a sliver of health before though. And this way we can't shout "1 is bigger than 0" Kappa
accountmadeforants: Ben can heal up by making the face cam bigger
beowuuf: wheeler wears the red shirt and puts the facecam over the health bar so we cannot see him bleed, and thus we won't get disheartened
Didero: Looking cool is always important
spiffinn: i love the grapplng hook already
inconsideratehat: looked sick tho
PsychoI3oy: if you have a grappling hook why wouldn't you use it?
Traion: Considering this is after the clunky Dark Souls jumping the movement in this is a miracle
Didero: Just reload the save afterwards Kappa
Tom_Bruise: Yea the axe doesn't cut through walls
matthaus_c: Miyazaki is pulling a fast one on ya, yeah
Anubis169: matthaus_c: It's kinda his thing :D
matthaus_c: sure is benginLol
Psychic_Ketchup: I always preferred a fistful of Brock myself
matthaus_c: ramming speed!
Kaorti: axe feels so good to use
trilemma85: You didn't think shields were just defensive, did you?
matthaus_c: oooh this fight. I'm glad to be here for this one
TXC2: we could swim up that water right?
AttackCowboy: this is a sweet spider-man game
AllTheWeasels: 50/50 that you die
TXC2: he's gaming, actively
Didero: ACTIVELY gaming :O
Didero: Didn't say 'Hey Chat' first, so he doesn't want real advice, so I'm going to baselessly say "Yes, you can absolutely make that" just because it's funny
TXC2: good enough
matthaus_c: exactly as intended
accountmadeforants: Calculated
Tom_Bruise: Jump failed succesfully
Psychic_Ketchup: As far as last words go, "I can make that jump" is pretty good
matthaus_c: fire is just a suggestion
TXC2: Plants are wet
Tom_Bruise: rain tends to stop plants from catching fire somewhat
GwalchmaiOfHouseParadox: !findquote jump
LRRbot: Quote #1610: "Sometimes, I just jump into walls..." —Beej [2016-01-18]
Tom_Bruise: also it's a videogame and burning foliage is, like, a whole thing
Psychic_Ketchup: They also don't have grappling hooks
Psychic_Ketchup: (I hope)
TXC2: "I see the old man, he stares back at me in the mirror"
AllTheWeasels: With their eyes
CaptainSpam: What do your NPC eyes see?
matthaus_c: not dead unless it's an anime death
accountmadeforants: You can
Kaorti: yep
DVio141: You can jump sweeps
Kaorti: you should
Statist42: yes
Kaorti: that's the intended counter
Traion: You can and have to. You skipped the tutorial for that
Tom_Bruise: "Sir! Sir, I'm trying to pilfer these goods you seem to be guarding! I will speak with you in a moment."
Didero: the 'Hey Chat' system works!
DVio141: Chat does he have mikiri yet?
Traion: yes
Didero: you're a fish now
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Don't google that.
AttackCowboy: This is the underwater stage
matthaus_c: Salmon Wheeler
TXC2: Don't google "why am I a fish?", good advice
CaptainSpam: I somehow feel it's be LESS embarrassing if you HAD died in the water.
GwalchmaiOfHouseParadox: !findquote water
LRRbot: Quote #6069: "The water seems to be water." —Cameron [2019-05-27]
ZawaAmaz: dodge button with no direction
DVio141: Evade towards them
accountmadeforants: Y button
Kaorti: forward evade
Traion: Mikiri counter? B when the spear flashes white
Statist42: dodge towards the opponent
Seabats: stick has to be neutral
Seabats: it's weird at first
Didero: The dude that wants to die near the temple probably has a tutorial on it
TXC2: Hello Adam
accountmadeforants: Oh, depends on your button mapping. And I guess defer to Adam.
Kaorti: timing can be a little weird, but it gets to be 2nd nature
Admiralmatt: You can also practice it back at the starting area
PrancerInflatableReindeer: oh, very happy to see you ben. and chat <3
TXC2: Hello PrancerInflatableReindeer welcome
Traion: Listen to Adam, he is better at this game then most of us ever will be
ZawaAmaz: mikiri counter is an essential skill for the last half of the game
ballesta25: Any better and we'd never see you because you'd be too sneaky.
DVio141: @Seabats is that a button mapping difference because I don't remember it needing to be?
TXC2: "I'm the worst shinobi you'll even see, largely BECAUSE you'll see me."
Tom_Bruise: Attacking with torches is against regulations, sonny
Didero: Turns out having fewer enemies around is better for your health
Traion: perfectly forwards works too iirc, any other direction will kill you @dvio141
CaptainSask: Guard: "Did he just become a fish?"
A_Cat_Herder: Nature is healing, ben is returning to the water
Kaorti: and then Wheeler was the fishes
DVio141: @Traion Thankyou iskDab
A_Cat_Herder: "He'll be sleeping with the fishes... consensually because he will also be a fish"
Traion: Didn't you remove that idol yesterday because you kept using it in combat
Didero: More chaotic, fewer audio issues, so it all balances out
qegixar: I joined late, what has been happening?
ZawaAmaz: nice
Kaorti: nice
Critterbot: Nice.
Traion: You can try Mikiri counter with your training buddy
ContingentCat: wow
TXC2: qegixar not much, falling into a river, getting killed by a guy with a spear, etc
Didero: @qegixar A lot of running, falling, uselessly chopping bamboo, and accidental swimming. Didn't miss any story things though
Traion: If you press Y on that skill description it tells you how to use it
ZawaAmaz: inputting a direction is death when doing mikiri counter
matthaus_c: Mithril Counter
DVio141: Mikiri is really satisfying to do
Kaorti: the animation is really cool
Didero: It's also fun that you can apparently just freely travel between the past and present
TXC2: "I still don't know why I'm here" is the big mood
Traion: I think they put that Monk there to force the player to learn how to Mikiri counter
Didero: Imagine doing your best to be a guard, and you hear a faint voice from the roof in passing going "These guys I can just ignore". Can't be good for yoru self-esteem
CaptainSask: They charge you? How much?
DVio141: @CaptainSask Bout tree fiddy
Traion: These are bandits not guards so fuck em
Mushbie: @dvio141 LUL
space_turbulence: is anyone else not getting sound?
matthaus_c: sound is fine here
Traion: You can tell they are bandits because they don't have pants
Didero: Wasthat the shuriken prostethic thing?
Mushbie: plenty of sound
TheMagicalSazerac: Oh snap, its time for my favorite rhythm game, Sekiro!
Traion: @space_turbulence game sound isn't super loud so maybe turn the stream up
accountmadeforants: Learn HM01
DVio141: Your feet are magically glued to the tree
Kaorti: axe guys do suck
CaptainSask: Axe guy isn't fond of you either!
CaptainSpam: Axe Guy wasn't that good a followup to Axe Cop.
Didero: Maybe try learning pyromancy
space_turbulence: okay yeah it was on my end
Traion: The real crime is ruining these beautiful flowers by getting blood all over them
accountmadeforants: Dude, be cool
Didero: oh no, our opponent is actively gaming too
TXC2: "we snuck in all quiet like" "yeah, like a fish" "like a fish?"
thraximore: This ain't his first Shinobi rodeo
Traion: Don't Mikiri counters feel amazing to pull off?
CaptainSask: He's actually a corporate recruited in his off time.
TehAmelie: shinobi rodeo. i'd watch that anime. with a hero who ends every sentence with "hoss"
shurtal: Shinobi hunter? That's gonna get expensive, Shinobi is WAY less popular than Ninja Gaiden
CaptainSpam: Shinobi Hunter: Hunting down every original Shinobi cartridge for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.
TheMagicalSazerac: I strugglie with Mikiri because I have to basically take my hand off my left thumbstick
Psychic_Ketchup: Nothing beats drinking in a tree
Tom_Bruise: "I don't suppose I can convince you to fight me up here like a fish?"
Didero: See, this is why we need to see your health, so we can shout at you to heal :p
ZawaAmaz: only works on some bosses I think
matthaus_c: just shout whenever the screen gets a red vignette :p
Kaorti: waiting on "hey chat"
Traion: You can look up how to use the skill in your menu
DVio141: I think the grapple attack only works in a couple places
TXC2: "hey chat" is like simon says
TheMagicalSazerac: Enemies will ahve a grapple marker if they can be grappled.
TheMagicalSazerac: He sadly doesn't have one
prince_infidel: Only shadows die twice
shurtal: I mean, the game says that Shadows die more than once, but less than three soooooo
CaptainSpam: You can, indeed, die twice. That's the entire conceit of the game.
GwalchmaiOfHouseParadox: Are you saying you are not a shadow?
matthaus_c: it's aid you can't see
TheMagicalSazerac: It's just random
accountmadeforants: Dying a lot
ZawaAmaz: it's a free bonus that becomes more rare as you die and people get sick
TheMagicalSazerac: Also the more you die, the less aid you get.
DVio141: Once you get the rythm of this game you feel so damn cool in every fight
TheMagicalSazerac: I think the lowest is like, 6%?
accountmadeforants: Yeah, by dying a lot
TehAmelie: a pity ring of sacrifice?
Kaorti: sometimes Buddha is merciful.
gravygravyjosh: its a chance to not lose stuff on death, you want it as high as possible
shurtal: does it get turned off if you ring the bell?
matthaus_c: the Buddha-oir
Traion: It is an in game feature you can lower it if you want to be an ass to a bunch of NPCs
ZawaAmaz: it's a free bonus to justify the vestigial NPC death system that they planned
ZawaAmaz: no
Didero: Why do you want to turn it off?
matthaus_c: it ties into plot, so no
Admiralmatt: no it cant be turned off
Kaorti: Don't worry about it. you just get lucky sometimes.
RayFK: You horny fuck
TheMagicalSazerac: Daddy Miyazaki has to punish me.
Didero: I mean, WE're here, isn't that punishment enough? :p
CaptainSask: uhhhhhhh
TXC2: it doesn't work unless you say "Daddy" Kappa
Didero: "I'll try using whatever this is" GAMING
TehAmelie: that awkward moment when you finally meet up with Miyazaki for some hot S&M and then realize you're both masochists
RebekahWSD: My brain keeps combining Sekiro and Ghost of Tsushima
Psychic_Ketchup: Nice!
TheMagicalSazerac: Champion
Kaorti: got there
matthaus_c: seabatClap
Didero: B for Best Gamer
CaptainSask: Feel the rythm
CaptainSpam: "Well, you just literally disemboweled me, intestines and vital organs just sprayin' all out and all, but I've got a second health meter, so back in they all go for another fight!"
thraximore: seabatClap
CaptainSask: Feel the rhyme.
Gen2Gengar: Hello Wheeler, hello chat!
TXC2: hello Gen2Gengar welcome
Kaorti: I think it's really hot out here
Kaorti: armor probably chafes a bit though
ContingentCat: it's called fashion
shurtal: Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it's ninja time! SEKIROOOOOOO
Didero: "That fish has a sword!"
Didero: why do these people keep making campfires everywhere
MagicalAttackGecko: ope
Psychic_Ketchup: Imagine a dude coming up to you with a sword just yelling "i-frames!"
LarkSachrosis: Don't call it a comeback
Kaorti: ninja shit!
AttackCowboy: Gotta go slow
DarkAbyssKeeper: Was that 2 bow guys?
Admiralmatt: yeah this is a slow methodical game
CaptainSpam: @Psychic_Ketchup And then you stab them, and as they fall to the ground they utter "wtf are these hitboxes", spelling out "wtf" as individual letters. Kappa
Didero: Adam's here?! Kappa
Admiralmatt: with a lot of guarding
CaptainSask: What did you call me?
TXC2: I feel like slow and steady is the soulsbourne way
Didero: Swimming while carrying a sword, axe, and clothes around is impressive
andysoo89: But it’s way cooler to rush in and just hack and slash everything in sight
AttackCowboy: are you trying to grapple fish?
Didero: hot tub stream when
TXC2: Didero we do have that one Feed dump episode in a hot tub, and that was enough Kappa
andysoo89: I also won’t get out when I’m in a pool, but that’s because ai can’t swim
DVio141: I think the giant baby saw you Wheeler
thraximore: moon's a little bright
jRoy7: He's stream sniping
Tom_Bruise: they must've spotted you by the axe glistening in the moonlight
shurtal: THeir eyes are just unclouded by hate
Kaorti: The dudes with bad eyesight already got ninja murdered
Traion: Sekiro takes place in a mystical world where lasic falls from the sky
vegetalss4: Is the screen darker for Wheeler than for us, or is that just the bit?
Didero: You're not dead, so that's enough health
thraximore: @Kaorti It's just natural selection
Kaorti: like that
matthaus_c: wrong place at the wrong time, bucko
matthaus_c: just mikiri that slam lrrBEEJ
TXC2: oh no it's a large lad
beowuuf: @Didero i mean james personally streamed in that category earlier in the week, so... :p
DVio141: Falling off trees into water is Wheelers ninja way
Didero: @Didero :O I think I missed that
thraximore: The Shinobi is scared as well umbraSmug
shurtal: Wheeler's Nindo: Vertigo
RayFK: Boku wa Shinobi Code
Traion: Wheeler also owes Chat a kiddie pool stream in the near future @didero
RayFK: Wheelers rider for Commander Kingdom is ridiculous
RayFK: We had to buy him a kiddie pool
DVio141: @RayFK Does he play from the kiddie pool?
Didero: Wait, does grappling give you i-frames? Or did that archer just miss?
beowuuf: @Didero oh yeah, while waiting for the ferry (overnight for us) on thursday he set up a 20 min ama/watch a ferry come in stream. The category is beaches and hot tubs or something like that :p
RayFK: Yeah, it's why his plays are all washed up!
hexy_lexy: hey all you beautiful friends who i love and treasure beyond what words can express!!!!! <3
shurtal: Frolicking Fancy Free is an inherent right
beowuuf: lrrSHINE
TXC2: Hello hexy_lexy welcome
DVio141: @RayFK iskDab Oooooh gottem iskDab
Traion: I just realised something: With the way Adam is greying he is actually kind of getting Wolf's hair
Didero: @Didero Ooh, fun. But luckily doens't sound like vital watching :p
Psychic_Ketchup: Nah big baby is on bridge duty today
hexy_lexy: oh Laugers my Daugers
beowuuf: @Didero you will not have missed any story for the main PAC plotline, no :p
thraximore: the best kind of joke explains itself :D
DVio141: Deja vu
Traion: We are trapped in a timeloop
AttackCowboy: I like how they were like "we can see you standing down there staring at the wall"
hexy_lexy: @thraximore explaining the joke improves the joke
Admiralmatt: also you can guard through arrows too
CaptainSpam: So if the guards are all like this, what job do all the people with basic peripheral vision have?
Didero: @Didero Yeah, miss one episode and you're completely lost
TXC2: Explaining the joke makes the joke inclusive Kappa
beowuuf: @Didero :D
Admiralmatt: above all guarding is the most important button in the game
Traion: They become shinobi to prey on the visually challenged @captainspam
hexy_lexy: @TXC2 exactly! you get it!
Tom_Bruise: I'm sure there's some lunatics out there who've completed this game with *just* ranged weapons. *You* will not be able to
Didero: Somebody call James and tell him this PiF playthrough needs another month
Traion: Nope you can't and AI don't think it is even theoretically possible
Traion: *I don't think
DVio141: Pretty sure you'd run out of spirit emblems to actually use it lmao
An anonymous user gifted a Tier 1 sub to Traion!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Traion! (Today's storm count: 8)
Traion: Oh thank you!
andysoo89: Now I want mochi
beowuuf: 2 days is like a month
DVio141: That plain ass bandit just predicted you so hard
Traion: I mean you look like I might choke if I try to swallow you... so yes you look like Mochi
TXC2: beowuuf settle down there 2020 Kappa
Didero: Free item!
beowuuf: @TXC2 lrrWOW :D
Kaorti: !fish!
Didero: Benjamin "Carp Killer" Wheeler
TXC2: Wheeler Confirmed Pod person :p
andysoo89: Water levels swifGross
beowuuf: from soft's waterworld (not the kevin costner one)
Didero: The 'W' in 'Wheeler' stands for 'Water'
DVio141: The premier water lover of the format
Traion: Proud of you for keeping to the no backseating rule Chat <3
TXC2: ^
Tom_Bruise: You say that, just wait 'til you next PiF where you'll play Ocarina of Time on the N64, not the remake that made the boots an item
TXC2: shit's on fire yo
Didero: Are you saying it's break time?
TehAmelie: did you know some of the water you drink is older than Earth?
andysoo89: No backseating or you get a sackbeating
Leonhart321: We get it, you hydrate
Traion: Our daddy is so big and hairy
DVio141: Dad is such a large lad
Tom_Bruise: Not without the Goron Tunic, you won't get through the front
TXC2: Dad is a Viking ?
Didero: This is in the past, right? Wasn't he alive in the present?
DVio141: The entire mountain, man truly is the largest of lads
vegetalss4: He can't tell you what to do, he's not your dad... wait...
saucemaster5000: you can still give him a farewell teabag
TXC2: it's the button labeld "contesting the will"
TehAmelie: something the four elements something harmony

Traion: I just realised something with Wheeler having the flame vent we can't even use "Try pyromancy" anymore. He literally has fire Kappa
andysoo89: @traion guess we have to suggest hydromancy now
ContingentCat: water bending?
hexy_lexy: @Traion we can still suggest if hes tried "pie romancy"
andysoo89: Necromancy maybe?
Traion: Do that and Wheeler will instantly jump into the nearest body of water @andysoo89 LUL
andysoo89: @traion I fail to see the problem with that LUL
TXC2: reminder that "mancy" means diving the future :p
Traion: I think pie romance is how he snagged Kiefer @hexy_lexy
TXC2: to be fair, Pie would win most people's hearts
TXC2: and we're back
BusTed: FBtouchdown

hexy_lexy: @Traion fair. Keifer is a major cutie-pie :p
Traion: Like a ghost
thraximore: So he DID try pyromancy
Traion: Just like we drew it up
TXC2: surely it should be Pyrojitsu? Kappa
Didero: Gamer Tip #3: Don't press the wrong buttons Kappa
Didero: @TXC2 Shinobi Pyromancy
CaptainSpam: i attacked ur shield pls respond

DVio141: 5/7 perfect score for that display of power and finesse

thraximore: I love the Nightjar Slash
Didero: Wasn't there a skill the other day you wanted to get?
Traion: Key items
Admiralmatt: key items
Didero: Wait, the carp scales are key items?
Admiralmatt: i've seen you use it a few times
Didero: Should've put a bayonet on that bow
Traion: You might want to look at the description of how to do the grappling attack, because you have done it
Admiralmatt: you just press attack while grappling
Didero: Glad I didn't believe you then :p
frank_the_great: Is Wheeler in 1st or 2nd Hirata?
TXC2: Pepperidge Farms remembers
Admiralmatt: @frank_the_great 1st
Traion: Spoilers @frank_the_great
Didero: Does the fire also interrupt or stun, or is it just damage?
NightValien28: Didero it can interrupt

saucemaster5000: it's for god's b-day

Didero: Are those bloody or hairy legs?
Leonhart321: The hair on those legs
andysoo89: @didero yes
thraximore: @Didero yes
Didero: I was afraid of that answer
TXC2: this guy needs a skin care routine :p
BusTed: :(
Traion: Poor bandit doesn't even have proper underwear
BrowneePoints: Oh you shush, you know Graham and Paul both care about and support you :P
Didero: Where did he store that money? D:
Tom_Bruise: that's the face of a stepdad who's looking at all the fortnite listings on his credit card bill
andysoo89: @didero do you really want to know?
Leonhart321: Don't ask questions Didero
Didero: @andysoo89 Good point! I retract my question!
DVio141: Large lad alert
Didero: It's ok, he's apparently drunk!
Tom_Bruise: well that man is dead
Traion: Time for the best lad!
TXC2: !plan
LRRbot: What are those???
saucemaster5000: well nice ally we had once
Didero: Lull them into a false sense of security by dying, smart plan!
thraximore: he is no longer in the fight
Traion: And now he is out of the fight
spiffinn: i haven't seen much of this game so i don't know the lore, is there an in world explanation for the large lads?
Leonhart321: Yes
Traion: I think so?
BrowneePoints: yes
DVio141: I believe he does
thraximore: he comes back
NightValien28: spiffinn they eat a lot of rice
thraximore: No
Traion: He wasn't
Leonhart321: He's not important
Admiralmatt: not really hes there to help in the fight
saucemaster5000: he's helpful for, like, this fight
Traion: He's only here for this fight
DVio141: He's a real homie but he isn't important
Leonhart321: He's our Bro-nin
BrowneePoints: well considering this is a memory, I don't think things went well for him xD
saucemaster5000: basically cannon foddder/distraction. with a sword
andysoo89: I feel like we should try to keep that Bro alive
Traion: I will say that keeping the homie alive is one of my most important missions when playing the game, he is a good boi
2Flower: "So, you're awake." And now we're SKyrim.
iridium_alchemist: I heard you like consequences for death right?
DVio141: Oh boy Rot!
Styxseus: Things are happening!
accountmadeforants: So you wanted to know how to turn off Unseen Aid, eh?
Didero: Are you... killing the whole world by dying?
BrowneePoints: Who knew breaking the cycle of life and death has bad repercussions!
DVio141: So how much do you like the npc's
TXC2: now is this like hollowing from DS3? or is it like that world change mechanic from Demon's souls ?
saucemaster5000: dragonrot sucks. use protection everyone
Traion: Can't answer that without spoilers @txc2 ;)
Leonhart321: If we had known there would be consequences for our actions, we wouldn't take them
TXC2: "well well well, if it isn't the consequences of my actions."
accountmadeforants: Are you ashamed of your words and deaths yet?
Leonhart321: Same
Traion: Same
Leonhart321: If your attempt starts by tripping at the environment, that's bad luck for the attempt
Didero: One thing I do like about these Souls games is that you can just run past a lot of enemies
Admiralmatt: you can talk to the guy too
Traion: I think so
Leonhart321: I think so?
ContingentCat: try it and find out?
Admiralmatt: yes??? i Think?
Traion: Never really tried
Styxseus: I feel like I've seen that happen in a speedrun, but im not sure
thraximore: Maybe? Sounds like a Bloodborne speedrun strat tbh
Louie_Salmon: That's how it works in all their games, so I would assume so.
thraximore: Well he /died/ but that's neither here nor there
Traion: His forehead is enormous
Leonhart321: I'm jealous of his jacket
TXC2: "Leeeeeeeroooooooy JENKINS!
thegitrogsquirrel: oil up the big boy
Leonhart321: I feel that with a sword that big, he should at least have friendly fire on
Didero: @thegitrogsquirrel Won't that turn this into a wrestling match?
Tom_Bruise: just go up to Dwock "The Rayne" Johnson and stab his ass
accountmadeforants: The green mist!
Leonhart321: @Didero Well, he does use the green mist
TehAmelie: such footsies
TehAmelie: oops i spoke too soon
Traion: And this is how Ben learned the lesson we all learned at this point. Don't talk to the homie because he is an idiot
Admiralmatt: i cant believe that worked
Louie_Salmon: Imagine if he grabbed you and teleported with you
Leonhart321: Anyone else have "To Be Continue" meme in their head right then?
Didero: His heart is in the right place, it's a shame his head isn't working
thraximore: I mean he IS a homie, just rather foolhardy
Leonhart321: But he does have a plan of attack. His plan is to attack
accountmadeforants: Such a homie, acting like a dumbass so you won't feel bad about him dying last time.
Louie_Salmon: If I remember right, the strategy is to thin the crowd and then call him over?
Traion: I mean his stealth is about as good as yours Wheeler Kappa
DeM0nFiRe: Literally doesnt even know what shit looks like
Leonhart321: I mean, at least he kills someone
TXC2: "I've never seen shit, I close my eyes when I go to the toilet."
thraximore: This feels like the one scene in LotR when the hobbits are hiding from the Easterlings LUL
dysond: Heyo Ben
TXC2: hello dysond welcome
Traion: Basically if you are not crouched enemies will instantly spot you
Tom_Bruise: If there isn't, it's up to Chat to get on that mod
dysond: Oh this boss is a B
Didero: Do we even know why these people are even here?
Tom_Bruise: Something something marauders, something something Divine Heir
accountmadeforants: ostensibly robbing the place
Traion: Okay Ben there is an easy strat for this boss: Quarter circle forward, quarter circle back, jump twice, block for 3.5 seconds exactly, give James 10 dollars, then call your big brother to beat the boss for you Kappa
TXC2: everything's coming up Milhouse
Tom_Bruise: Don't forget to put in that weird pretzel-motion like Geese's super
TXC2: "more Oil!" USA, 1901 to Present Kappa
Admiralmatt: the sugar only lasts a few seconds
ElfLawyer: oof
TXC2: still, we're making progress
Traion: You need to try pyromancy is what you need to do Kappa
beowuuf: @Traion If you don't have big brother in your cupboards, you can use adam, but make sure it's savidan brand adam
Admiralmatt: but you can guard most of his attacks
Didero: Have you tried parrying? Kappa
DVio141: I would reccommend killing him
Sibwow: parrying is for cowards
Didero: Wait, I meant it as a joke, I'm not trying to actually help! :p
Traion: It lasts like 20ish seconds
Admiralmatt: you are supposed to parry him though
DVio141: You can parry most things tbh even larger lads than him
Traion: Oh 30 seconds exactly
Admiralmatt: i think theres only like 2 things in the game where parry him is bad advice
Leonhart321: I should replay this game. I always forget how good the aesthetic is until I see it again
saucemaster5000: his attacks are fairly telegraphed so he is very parry-able. But the real answer is do what works for yeh
Traion: I might've thrown on the download for this game in the break @leonhart321

Traion: Behind Ben @fluffybumhole
fluffybumhole: rip
beowuuf: @fluffybumhole behind ben, as he's either fine or dead :p
Leonhart321: Who need parries when you have fire?
ZawaAmaz: if you jump a sweep and you're right next to them, you can jump again in mid air for extra posture damage
TXC2: ElfLawyer Ben is going as fas as he can without parrying
TXC2: *far
Traion: He has avoided learning it so far @elflawyer he did learn how to mikiri counter though
ElfLawyer: @TXC2 oh daaaamn
Leonhart321: Bro-nin putting in work this run
Admiralmatt: The thing i learned about this game is any time you are not swinging your sword, you should be guarding. dodging is not something you do that much.
fluffybumhole: the red thing is a perilous attack indicator
Kaorti: that was the fire status effect indicator
ZawaAmaz: that just means you landed the fire status
Tregelen: that just indicates burning
Kaorti: They were stunned for the duration
Admiralmatt: that was a burn effect
Leonhart321: That means the fire status is on
Traion: That is the fire status, it dots and prevents posture recovery
Kaorti: no visceral, but an opening for free attacks
fluffybumhole: you can not cancel your run as far as i know
raicune: wheelerY wheelerT
Didero: Why are these dudes just standing around staring at each other? Are they on a date?
TXC2: can't alert people if they're dead
Traion: You know we've shafted a lot of sweaty men without pants today Kappa
kristian_fischer: Why did Wheeler just kill that almost naked Japanese man?
dysond: you can also kill the adds then run away and wait for him to reset for a stealth attack
ZawaAmaz: best to stand your ground and play the rhythm game
Leonhart321: What're you trying to do with the dash?
Leonhart321: I don't think there's a dash cancel
ZawaAmaz: the spin works well, but only when sidestepping an attack
Admiralmatt: i only know of a block cancel not a dash cancel
beowuuf: @kristian_fischer because lack of armour means you are the hardest to hit. the more skin you show the moe protected you are Kappa

fluffybumhole: sekiro takes a step when you input the run attack so you can use it to sidestep once you get used to it
Kaorti: spin isn't a good opener, but does work as part of a flow of attacks and guards
fluffybumhole: does he know how to heavy attack? it took me a while to figure it out
TXC2: "show me ya moves!"
dukeofbread: hits like a truck but is slow
ZawaAmaz: no
Admiralmatt: no
Kaorti: no
Tregelen: not on grab
Traion: no
BirkaBirkowski: nope sure cant
BrowneePoints: no
Leonhart321: No
Kaorti: that's a grab not a thrust
ZawaAmaz: command grabs are extra scary
Admiralmatt: not on this guy
thraximore: grabs must be dodged,
Styxseus: The Mikiri-counter is specifically for thrusting attacks
fluffybumhole: death does it too
BrowneePoints: death
BirkaBirkowski: Rot is basically pointless anyway 🤷
thraximore: It's the final death, resurrection doesn't influence it
Leonhart321: Death increases rot, NOT Ressurection
BrowneePoints: ressurrection doesn't. just death
Kaorti: you still resurrect if you die, just at a statute instead
Traion: Dying does increase the rot, resurrection does not
Admiralmatt: death increases the rot
dukeofbread: this is too honorable, I always get one backtstab in first
BirkaBirkowski: there are no permanent drawbacks to letting rot go rampamt
Traion: Only actually being sent back to the bonfire increases rot
covo375: I still am always surprised that you can jump in a FromSoft game
Leonhart321: Tag in
Traion: @birkabirkowski no spoilers
Tom_Bruise: he was probably gonna chop that boulder in half
thraximore: He's just watching
thraximore: Respectfully
Leonhart321: "Sekiro with the hot tag aaaaand he's dead"
TXC2: "I'm making it a tag match player!"
thraximore: Nice dodge streamer
Easilycrazyhat: XDXD
Kaorti: try pryomancy
Styxseus: Oh no! :D
Leonhart321: I was kidding
dukeofbread: I hate using my consumable items, some are really hard to come by
TXC2: two oil, toil...wait
BrowneePoints: Yea, deprogramming from DS and Bloodborne for this and learning the parry rhythms took a WHILE
Traion: Yeah getting out of the Souls muscle memory takes a bit at the start of this
Leonhart321: Yeah, deprogramming myself from Pyromancy range strats was an effort
dukeofbread: rolling is much less viable than DS3, L1 is OP
Leonhart321: Dark Souls 2 is the better modern take of a Metroidvania. Come at me
Kaorti: tracking is quite strong and there are hardly any i-frames, but the game's still fair
saucemaster5000: what's frustrating about sekiro if you're used to DS/Bloodborne dodging is how far you can get without learning to block/parry everything
BrowneePoints: Oh yea, it's a hell of a lot more accurate in this, but that's cuz it's designed around swordfights/parries
ZawaAmaz: getting 360 noscoped by a Heide Knight
ak_zakk: That is only if you never level up ADP/AGL in DS2
Admiralmatt: yeah it is the same in this one.
Admiralmatt: they dont want you dodging in this one.
BrowneePoints: @Leonhart321 I mean Dark Souls is an evolution of the Metroidvania genre. I remember Alex doing a big convo with cam on that
Styxseus: Sooo.. The first time I beat DS3, I kinda went for a "sneak-spell, backstab + parry"-kinda strat -- and then Sekkiro showed up and I was like "YES, This is JUST what I wanted!" xD
thraximore: the buttons are juuuuuuuuust different enough to throw you off whenever you switch between FromSoft games LUL
dukeofbread: once you learn the cadence/tempo of L1 spam you only have to worry about grab/sweep/thrust attacks
KaleCrutch: thats the type of thing I imagine a decent animation makes a huge difference even if they're mechanically the same
theblakdeth: match 3
Tregelen: sekiro basically ddr
ZawaAmaz: it's probably because the strong movement options in this game would trivialize the challenge if it still worked like DS3/BB
Easilycrazyhat: Was gonna say, you forgot rhythm game XD

Easilycrazyhat: I missed the beginning of this fight. Are we trying to have the other guy survive? Or just using him as a distraction?
theblakdeth: big ouphe
BrowneePoints: Yea you got FromSoft Cam'd there
Leonhart321: I blame the rock. It clearly jumped in our way
vellebastet: @traion Ah, okay. Thank you
TXC2: good to know the Camera is still the number one end boss
ContingentCat: it's ok that was just your first try right
Didero: Standing close to a rock doesn't mean the camera should just hide everything though
Tom_Bruise: not to get overly sassy, but at this rate, this drunkard's gonna die of dragonrot
ZawaAmaz: best to just block his attacks until he gives the red signal, you can never get guard broken regardless of posture damage if you keep timing it right
Traion: Ben has never not beaten a boss first try. The other tries didn't count because the sun was in his eyes
ContingentCat: right the sun, what a dasterly fellow
Didero: @Traion AND he's using a new controller!

Didero: I thought there were no good guys in FromSoft games?
Traion: we are killing bandits, if videogames have taught me anything that makes us the good guys @gwalchmaiofhouseparadox
TXC2: there are no good guys, just different kinds of bad guy
Didero: Maybe that's one of the reasons I'm bad at these kinds of games: I don't think things through nearly as well as Ben does
Mr_Horrible: oh no, he's an honorable idiot! sofieWut
Leonhart321: He learned by watching you, OK?
Traion: Based on his combat style Isshin Ashina taught him to fight
TXC2: He has the high ground

vellebastet: Definitely. You got this now
dysond: might be worth farming some dudes to get the 2nd res
Didero: Literally no way it can go wrong now!
dysond: kill them
TehAmelie: on one hand, it must be like super satisfying for the boss when this guy runs around for 30 minutes with ninja tricks killing everyone in town and trying to whittle you down and then you stab him once
vellebastet: sykLaugh
TXC2: everyone form a queue
Didero: I still don't quite know which symbol means 'undodge-able attack' and which one means you can stand on their weapon
TXC2: Red is the can't be parried one I think
thraximore: @Didero I beat the game twice and never learned
ZawaAmaz: it will keep you topped up on spirit emblems
thraximore: I just figured it out via their movement
Traion: I just figured it out based on their movements @didero
BrowneePoints: @Didero attack animation
Statist42: they are different symbols? i just assumed it meant 'danger' and you look at movement to know what to do
thraximore: probably
BrowneePoints: they aren't different
Didero: Oh, good to know I'm not an idiot. Thanks chat!
jibkat: Oil him up!
jibkat: Oh wait, wrong game
saucemaster5000: yeah the mikiri, jump counter, and unblockable are so similar you just have to see their attack animations

dweebert91: What happened to your friend?
TehAmelie: i like that his liquor is poisonous and not flammable

Mistborn83: Ben I believe in you
TXC2: Victory, like entropy, is assured
Styxseus: Well, the execution is not always triggered by "they ran out of health", so you can often kill things faster by doing that
thraximore: oh no LUL that's not what I meant
Styxseus: By executing them, that is
Didero: Just casually sliding up a set of stairs
Didero: I keep thinking Big Lad has four legs for some reason. Might be his skirt throwing me off
thraximore: @Didero I think it's a tunic? Maybe? He doesn't strike me as terribly concerned regarding his fashion choices

magical_girl_amelia: hi everyone!~
TXC2: hello magical_girl_amelia welcome
jibkat: Hi MGA
vellebastet: @magical_girl_amelia Hello~
Traion: @qegixar don't question how we take items and money out of the memory, the game doesn't either :p
magical_girl_amelia: I cooked katsu curry for dinner last night and am currently feeling nice and warm
jibkat: Can I steal some magical_girl_amelia ?
Didero: Cheese is an important part of a meal though
magical_girl_amelia: ehehe if you live in melbourne, australia
jibkat: Only a 16 hour flight!
Leonhart321: On the subject of katsu, does anyone know if eggplant keeps if you freeze it? I could go for making some Eggplant Katsus
magical_girl_amelia: cheap at twice the price :p
thraximore: it's wooooorking
theblakdeth: he's beginning to believe
Didero: Imagine if after all this work Homie gets the kill
iridium_alchemist: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown

Leonhart321: RIP Bro-nin. You shall not be missed
Traion: @browneepoints not technically a full boss ;)
Didero: Maybe next time try pyromancy
thraximore: Enjoy the cheese while it lasts :)
SplendidJank: I refused to party any bosses in this game, it made it very hard but my playthrough felt very unique
pyrojakk: @Traion ;)
BrowneePoints: @Traion well he got a prayer bead, so I'll count it
Leonhart321: Pyromancy is weak, Faith builds are where it as
chefryto90: Question for chat (that you can whisper is is a spoiler) ¿is there something different if Bro-nin lives?
tehfewl: try Finger, but Hole.
SplendidJank: I was just very bad at it
Easilycrazyhat: Now the game truely begins.
pyrojakk: That boss is easier to beat by just running around it and slashing it imo
Traion: But pyromancy can splash Miracles so easily! @leonhart321
Didero: @Traion What's the difference between that dude and an 'official' boss?
BrowneePoints: Bosses are harder
Solid_Fuel: the people saying "should have dodged taht" ....
Traion: You'll see @didero
Tom_Bruise: was he? He gave you a bead upon death
Traion: That was a miniboss correct
thraximore: Prayer Beads indicate a boss in my opinion, some bosses are just smaller than others
theblakdeth: bosses give memory, mini bosses give beads
Didero: @Traion Looking forward to that then!
CherryMagnolia: I really want to play Souls games but I don't own a console or a PC, is buying an Xbox series S a good idea to play Sekiro and some other story based RPGs?
PixelArtDragon: I'm guessing proper bosses have multiple stages or something?
pyrojakk: @Traion The full bosses have particular messages
Traion: beads are from minibosses
TXC2: Dodge, dip, duck, dive and dodge
jibkat: Finishher!
Didero: See, if it were me fighting that boss, I'd simply not get hit Kappa
Styxseus: Yeah, parrying is very different here than in darksouls too, in DS, parry is a tricky defensive move, in this game parrying feels waaaay more aggressive
Psychic_Ketchup: Oh hey is this who gave us the bell in the present?
DiamondMX: I think the question might be "Do the soulslike games perform well on the lower powered series S?"
krfsm: "are you ok?" they're in a FromSoft game, so signs point to"no".
frank_the_great: The only reason why I haven't played Dark Souls 1 is because it never goes on sale and I don't want to pirate or pay $40
Traion: DS Remastered ruined the experience of original Dark Souls. Blighttown with more than 2 frames is not how Myazaki wanted it Kappa
Leonhart321: And all of this is why I don't talk much, if anything, about the game unless directly asked. Let the player play the game
DiamondMX: DS1 had performance issues on the PS4, iirc, in one of the zones. But other than that, they're likely to be fine.
Didero: That IS bad news :(
jibkat: noooooooOOO
Styxseus: Oh no!
Leonhart321: Wow, I got got
vellebastet: Oh nooooooo!
