Fanklok: That's my secret I always die
Leonhart321: Grandma Gnat
accountmadeforants: Ai ai ai she's your lady butterfly
Didero: you're welcome Kappa
Traion: You defeated her right on schedule actually
GhostValv: I did this :)
Leonhart321: Femme Fly
ExhaustedElox: Hey Wheeler. :) Gonna stab some people?
Didero: I don't think we have game audio?
Didero: I was expecting the old dude to cough and wheeze a bit, sorry if I spoke too soon
Traion: No slashing though, slashing is for cowards
Fanklok: Stabbing people with a sword designed for slashing?
ExhaustedElox: Ooh, good call with the chopping.
Didero: Oh yeah, there's the game audio
accountmadeforants: Audio does exist, it's just vewy vewy quiet. But that's not new.
Traion: Sakura Droplet is the thing you got, should be in key items
Didero: Yeah, game's just a bit quiet, but that could be the game and not the audio settings
TXC2: "be vewy quiet, we're hunting for Samuwi"
Fanklok: There's always the FrankerFaceZ plugin, it has an audio compressor to balance everything out
accountmadeforants: Fanklok Yeah, that's how I was able to confirm audio exists at all.
GlennSeto: I'm only halfway through last week's VODs. How far... ah, that answers that.
accountmadeforants: Just crop it at -60 Db.
Didero: Except for Windows Update, which can and will mess everything up :p
TXC2: Windows Update AKA settings roulette
GlennSeto: AMD driver updates re-enabling that HDMI audio device is always fun.
Didero: This guy has some very polite ways of saying "fuck off"
Traion: Sakura Droplet in Key Items
Fanklok: Dying three times? This game is a liar
TXC2: the pro gamer strat is to be running Win7 with a too new CPU so that you don't even get updates at all Kappa
Zaghrog: third from the top
Didero: Do you have to hand in that memory thing at the idol thing?
Didero: Maybe it means you're not a shadow anymore? :p
Traion: #TryPyromancy
thraximore: !duh
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.
Styxseus: I mean, you have the power to ressurect 3 times, doesnt that means you can die twice, two times?
CaptainSpam: Ah, time for Sekiro: Thunderball.
ContingentCat: !spoilers
GhostValv: please don't be dingus :)
Fanklok: You should try parrymancy
TXC2: #JustDon't
accountmadeforants: That's good, Fanklok
Didero: On the plus side, we made you beat Insect Lady without (much) parrying :p
Traion: Oh Try Parrymancy is a great one
GhostValv: BOP ?
accountmadeforants: TOS
DeM0nFiRe: "Hey Chat, say map!"
Leonhart321: You finangle the dangle to humpus the wumpus
thraximore: Humped Whumpus, the strongest card in the cycle
Didero: Parry Mason?
GlennSeto: I like "Try pyromancy" better than "go left" since the sarcasm is more obvious
rotarysorter: is Ben the kind that would enjoy ringing the bell? Kappa
Fanklok: I thought of it last night while I was watching the last vod and was very excited to make the joke
Didero: Wait, you get spirit emblems from killing people? How have I missed that for so long?
ZackTheCatKing: Wheeler how goes the skulking?
Traion: I think we have an insect problem down here
accountmadeforants: Go Left wasn't just a backseating thing, though, it was also a stream delay joke which doesn't really work anymore.
accountmadeforants: "Go left 30 seconds ago."
TXC2: go left is like 6 years old :p
GlennSeto: true, true
GhostValv: lrrSPOOPY
Traion: Horror game!
GlennSeto: How long is the delay nowadays?
Didero: The only thing to fear is fear itself, or something
TXC2: GlennSeto mines 3 secs right now
thraximore: boog
goatprince: are ya winnin, champ?
Traion: If I had insects this big in my castle I'd burn the whole thing down

accountmadeforants: It's a good button
ContingentCat: close enough
goatprince: as a backseater, i have to tell you that that was actually the right button
Leonhart321: Boy that was all of 5 minutes. People do have the attention span of a goldfish don't they?
accountmadeforants: None of you even have your backseat driving license, sit down.
hermatic1: surely those undead peeps had already died before they resurrected so they die thrice aswell
objectivefailure: Glad to see even feudal Japan has basement crickets.
Traion: Hey I liked blighttown. All three frames I got
goatprince: as a backseater, you're welcome
DVio141: <message deleted>Have you tried finger but hole?
thraximore: @Leonhart321 Funny how often it's a non-subscriber... almost like they're wandering in off the front page and just IMMEDIATELY feel the need to berate the streamer
GhostValv: sin?
Didero: but what did the note say
moundsofmayhem: go backwards 30 minutes into the fututre
KidAmn: @Traion 3 frames? Alright, way to flex that 3080
Traion: @kidamn hahahaha
Fanklok: More of that pacifying agent, must be nothing.
Traion: If normal locusts eat crops do these things eat trees?
GlennSeto: TOS
Didero: This seems unhygienic
thraximore: Aww, he just gives you a kiss <3
objectivefailure: I hated these guys in Ocarina of Time.
goatprince: pacifying agent? more like award winning, critically acclaimed streamer Ben Wheeler
BrowneePoints: @thraximore unfortunately FromSoft fans can't just let the person enjoy the game
Leonhart321: @thraximore I was in a friend stream where someone came in and spoiled Chrono Trigger on a blind 1st time run, including having a username that spoilt it. Nothing surprises me about "trolls" and backseaters on Twitch
Didero: Sekiro boy should watch more horror movies, he'd know to chop off the heads of zombies
hermatic1: doesn't the enemy know there is a pandemic atm. Their attack does not look covid free
Traion: Ben would you like a relevant bit of tutorial text you only get randomly as a loading screen text?
goatprince: same
TXC2: "have tough, will travel"
thraximore: Chat, we can just shitpost!
Didero: That means we have more time to think up dumb puns!
rotarysorter: who wouldnt like a tough man <3
Leonhart321: Just tough men doing tough things

Didero: It's a FromSoft game, so bugs are guaranteed Kappa
GlennSeto: One day you start murdering people for your sworn lord, next thing you know, people are hitting you up on kidnapping gigs...
CAKHost: Also I know nothing about this game. Other than shadows die twice, I guess?
hermatic1: Clap
Traion: Every boss fight needs fire, that is what pyromancy is for
goatprince: @AnAnonymousGifter thnk u amomomos
CAKHost: Hi Matt!
thraximore: The suicide consumable is unique to this game
jibkat: Eat this to die?
accountmadeforants: Unrelated, have they invented glasses which don't collect all the dust and ghost fingerprints yet? That explains the onset headache.
Styxseus: You know, in case you really wanna get to that second death real fast
GlennSeto: It is useful in certain situations.
TXC2: accountmadeforants HA HA HA no
TXC2: dust on your glasses is the forever hell
GlennSeto: I miss Dark Souls 2...
goatprince: it was really..................................bugging you
Traion: Nah it is just DS2's Rat King, he moved to Japan
Didero: Man, Ben can read so much faster than I can...
thraximore: @Didero he can also do math very fast, just ask Beej
Leonhart321: That was a swerve to a Liverpudlian accent I did not expect
GlennSeto: Been following a promising fan overhaul of DS2's wonky lighting, but there is no release in sight.
TXC2: Leonhart321 possible a Little Britain reference
Didero: The problem with water generally isn't the getting in, it's the getting out again :p
goatprince: oh, actual swimming???
Traion: Honestly a DS2 remaster could be nice. Fix up the ugly tiling textures and the bad lighting
thraximore: Sekiro prefers letting the cold water freeze his bollocks before fully submerging
vegetalss4: Perhaps it's an ancient japanese shark cage, for looking at sharks.
Leonhart321: @TXC2 Ah, that might explain why I blanked on it. I hated that show
ContingentCat: HI Rusty I'm Dad
Didero: "All that screaming and shouting must've been the wind"
Traion: All the gun fire must have turned that guard deaf
hermatic1: must have been the wind
GlennSeto: In this cavern? For sure.
TXC2: Leonhart321 same, I never really saw it, but it was part of the cultural zeitgeist at the time
vegetalss4: Oh, I'm also just joking around because the anachronism amused me.
Didero: That water had a health bar!
TXC2: vegetalss4 does Japan even have sharks? :p
GlennSeto: @txc2 It's surrounded by ocean, so probably.
BrowneePoints: A bamboo rifle in a cave would be deafening
Didero: So do I just have a terrible sense of direction or is everybody feeling lost?
thraximore: Archdragon Peak, coming right up!
Leonhart321: @TXC2 Well, when you're the butt of all the "that one" jokes, you both have a strong aversion and a wilful need to supress those things
BrowneePoints: @Didero this section of the game is very open ended
TXC2: Leonhart321 indeed!
thraximore: aha, you feel our pain!
TXC2: can't break Jars? Did Adam Savidan make this game or something?
Didero: "Congratulations, you're our thousandth visitor!"
mowdownjoe: There could be people in those jars! We don't break these.
GlennSeto: Is Wolf about to get scammed for his life savings?
hermatic1: is it hide and seek, but which one?

CAKHost: Maybe they are those pots that Japanese leave sealed for a while....?
Leonhart321: You can be
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: You don't want sweaty books.
hermatic1: the graphics are superb
thraximore: sure
TheThirdTail: You can be here
Didero: should any of us REALLY be here
goatprince: you're here now
Traion: No you are doing Nito after gargoyles right now
GlennSeto: You are here, therefore it's okay.
hermatic1: no idea never played the game sorry
Leonhart321: There is nothing that you can not do now should you choose to
Didero: We're in Congo now? We were just in Japan!
thraximore: As you've so clearly illustrated by killing Lady Butterfly, there are few areas you can't beat in this game with sufficient persistence/stubborness
GlennSeto: I mean, I cleared this area before the next story boss, but I was also stuck on that soab.
Traion: There is a progress block here that will non obviously stop you at some point
Styxseus: Game goes "Hey, its really dangerous here! You should turn back!" ... Hey, should I go here?
Didero: You just rested, so literally nothing can go wrong
TXC2: Didero you don't play from soft games do ya? Kappa
Didero: @TXC2 I have people to do that for me
thraximore: I don't.. think... it works that way
objectivefailure: The list has it's own rules, not meant for the minds of men.
Styxseus: I cant answer that :P
Leonhart321: Oh you mean IN game
GlennSeto: I wouldn't call this Nito after Gargoyles, but Tomb of Giants before Ornstein & Smough.
Didero: is this a bird person?
rotarysorter: wooooooo
niccus: spoken like a guy who doesn't scream
Didero: Simply grab a ledge with part of your fingers to prevent fall damage, apparently
GlennSeto: You stab them long enough, they're bound to scream.
Traion: On my first playthrough of DS1 I did Tomb of Giants after Gargoyles because I thought that was where the second bell would be. Perseverance conquers all
thraximore: perfectemundo
GlennSeto: @traion I salute you.
GhostValv: ???
TXC2: "where does Skeiro go? that's right, the square hole!"
thraximore: or a strapping sailor
Didero: a... farmer? What places did you go to as a kid?
rotarysorter: rick flair coming in hot
Traion: Bird people!
GlennSeto: Is this the place were sailors hang out?
TXC2: what are they feeding these birds?
DVio141: That's not bird poop, that's bird man poop!
thraximore: Yeah they're OK :)
Vyous: Enemies start to get really neat going forward
Didero: I just realised, is the places list maybe sorted alphabetically, but based on the Japanese names?
Traion: Someone tried to feed pottery to pickle-pee
shurtal: Birds just trying to be an entrepeneur
TXC2: !findquote cool
LRRbot: Quote #4733: "I have a really cool sword...until it explodes...presumably." —Graham [2018-03-05]
thraximore: @Didero I was wondering that myself
hermatic1: I know exactly what you mean Ben, my wife and I did one of those at a local farm/ children play area. I was a girl on a swing and my wife was the angry farmer
Didero: Did that give you fall damage?
thraximore: LUL
shurtal: FAREWELL
Didero: Ok, THAT did, but the previous fall?
Traion: It is not Didero
Didero: @Traion Good to know
Traion: It is roughly progression sorted with Hirata Estate at the bottom as an exception
NightValien28: the gun shinobi
hermatic1: he looks a bit of a badass
Traion: O N I W A
TXC2: the gunobi
Didero: Ok, at this point it's probably a dumb question, but the Ashina are the people that kidnapped the kid we need to protect, right?
Traion: Yes and no @didero
thraximore: @Didero Genichiro was, but he's not the entirety of Ashina
vegetalss4: I think the kid is also from the Ashina family?
GlennSeto: I'm still not sure how our boss is affiliated with the Ashina clan.
Traion: Kuro is the last surviving member of a cadet branch of the Ashina so he is technically with his family
theblakdeth: I got killed by these Nightjar an embarrassing number of times
Didero: I think it's probably easier on all of us if I stop caring about the lore :p Thanks for the answers
hermatic1: as there are guns, can you pick up there guns?
thraximore: @Traion oh I'm not brave enough for custody disputes LUL
hermatic1: ^their
TXC2: the early bird gets the shai halud
thraximore: helloooooooo friends
goatprince: Shinobi tecknique [Early Bird get the Worm]
TXC2: hermatic1 nope
Traion: Hey I learned all the lore without someone to tell it to that time was wasted @Didero Kappa
thraximore: there's so MANY of you :D
GlennSeto: @traion Would that be comparable to sub-families among the Yakuza?
Leonhart321: Like 4 or 5
Didero: is "my dude" the same as "hey chat"? :p
Didero: That camera is just straight-up mean
hermatic1: loving these camera positions
TXC2: GlennSeto a Cadet branch of a family is like someone's cousin's cousin
theblakdeth: i think these dudes just have boomerang thingies
Didero: The memory of Fly Lady was still in your inventory, I think, do you need to hand that in at the idol? I think you did that with the other boss
HungryTanuki: I think that's the one thowing shurikens at you
Traion: As far as I understand it is is more like a European Cadet branch. A minor more distant branch of the family that is still tied to the main line via oaths and blood
objectivefailure: Impossible, you can't take it too seriously. It has ultimate in the name.
NightValien28: the actual hell even is ultimate frisbee
thraximore: @Didero did so already
NightValien28: huh
Didero: @Didero Ah ok, must've missed that then, thanks
hermatic1: people who know in chat, in this game do you have access to ranged weapons or is it all close combat?
TXC2: NightValien28 competitive Frisbee basically
niccus: it's probably a baby jail or something
thraximore: Seems like a waste, square footage is important on mountain fastnesses!
Traion: That is where they take the puppers if they need to pee on the middle of the night. It is not wasted space Kappa
Mattmitchell45: How Many Mr Owls Ya Gotta Luck to Get to this Tootsie Roll Center?
Wyatt46692: It's where they bust out their duel disks, they needed the extra space for their blue eyes
theblakdeth: @hermatic1 you have some attached to your prosthetic, but it's not point and shoot. it's lock on
Mattmitchell45: *Lick
Didero: @hermatic1 Ben has a tool that throws a shuriken thing, but it doesn't do too much damage
hermatic1: kk ta peeps
Traion: @hermatic1 you have ranged weapons but you can't really use them as a primary means of fighting as they have a limited number of uses
thraximore: FANTASTIC impression
thraximore: how DO you do it
WaltzMaster1: damn it he knows
theblakdeth: how do you know about kite guy?
TXC2: nah nah nah nah nah nah nah KITE GUY!
Traion: Ben was born to be a kite guy
BusTed: 🪁
Styxseus: What a job
hermatic1: any chance Ben you can cut the kite string and release the fella?
Styxseus: Kite-duty *again?* sigh..
Kazman20a: very top of the building you are on
theblakdeth: so lore nerds, who are the Nightjar?
Traion: Btw Ben I'm addicted to Gwent now and I blame you
Traion: Right now that would be spoilery @theblakdeth
Kazman20a: he fell, not sure how far
theblakdeth: ahh
thraximore: did he actually? ha
hermatic1: he was given the wrong sort of roof shoes
vegetalss4: What an embarrassing way for a ninja to die
Kazman20a: there was he fell
thraximore: @LoadingReadyRun someone said he fell LUL
vegetalss4: There was a third one
Traion: there was a third one
Didero: With all thos crazy flips, it's bound to happen
ContingentCat: well he stepped to a place with no roof and gravity stepped in
TXC2: Gravity, it'll get ya
Traion: He didn't have a fancy grappling hook like you do Ben
Phaers: weeeeeeeeoooooooooooo
Styxseus: :D
Didero: Seems they're trying pyromancy
Traion: He tried pyromancy we are doomed!
TXC2: this guy's got a blender
theblakdeth: got 'em with the consecutive normal attacks
Didero: lrrJUDGE
Kyir: This area was always a bit framey for me
hermatic1: oh no, I actually thought the kite guy was just an background thing, not an actual baddy
Traion: This view is so pretty
NightValien28: this game is like 20GB
NightValien28: and looks amazing
Phaers: did he get the guy directly velow chat ?
Kyir: They fly in packs
Traion: Oh look that is Mt Kongo in the distance we just saw those tress up close
Styxseus: Birds of a feather
Traion: Oh that is Moonview tower looks like it keeps the whole area in memory
Didero: oh no we're a ghost now
Kyir: He's a genius
Didero: Ghost Of Sekiro
theblakdeth: Legend status acquired
Traion: hahaha
thraximore: nice superhero landing
hermatic1: ouch his ankles
Kyir: Snuck right through the ledge
Didero: poor lizard
Traion: This is the lizard sanctuary, they were endangered you monster!
NightValien28: gecko country
Kyir: They're just hanging out
thraximore: screw your car insurance, lizards!
Didero: Which sugar was that?
thraximore: Gaachin's
Traion: Gaachin
Didero: Thanks
thraximore: One of the few sugars I actually bother to use
shurtal: B'gawk?
Traion: Gaachin and Ako are the big sugars
hermatic1: sekiro was just high the sugar gave him no additional benefits it was all in his head
Traion: Do we have any random pellets left?
thraximore: nope lol
hermatic1: nice
theblakdeth: dude i got so lost in this area
Kyir: Good thing you have those ninja legs that let you fall from any height
Didero: something something for whom the bell tolls
Traion: Those bells are someone in another online session ringing the first Bell of Awakening Kappa
thraximore: uh I never tried
Traion: I don't think you can
theblakdeth: Don't think so
Kyir: Sounds rad though
TXC2: lets try, for science
NightValien28: give it a shot, what`s the worse that can happen
hermatic1: only one way to find out ben
matthaus_c: you need the howitzer upgrade lrrBEEJ
shurtal: that dude's gonna give the ol' Mario Long Jump Scream
Didero: seems it's just asleep up there
Kyir: He's just chilling
thraximore: vibin'
theblakdeth: kite guy is menuing as well
Didero: Points? You get points for killing?
hermatic1: maybe he is sleeping
explosionally: <message deleted>can you shout out for my sister ....her name is Candis
shurtal: WHY ARE YOU AT SOUP
Didero: @shurtal :D
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
hermatic1: Ben got a busy day today then, this then pokemon later?
ContingentCat: yup Sundays are a lot of Wheeler

Tom_Bruise: never listen to chat, except when we're telling you to use pyromancy
BrowneePoints: That skill is SUCH a quality of life enhancer
Styxseus: :D
shurtal: this game just keeps on giving
Kyir: I would be so mad if I was that guy and someone blocked my gun point blank with a sword
hermatic1: Ben jump gun to face oh no
Didero: You just made that dude's day
BrowneePoints: Sekiro: Headshots fire Twice
Kyir: The grappling hook animations are so good
theblakdeth: all the animations are great. so smooth (Ft. Rob Thomas)
Didero: oh shoot
thraximore: They were going to battle, of course they're all packing heat :D
Tom_Bruise: what the hell guys?! I thought we said "no guns" ! How's this honourable!?
theblakdeth: Sekiro: Guns Can't Shoot Up
hermatic1: no automatic rifle, we have 5 guys with rifles at home.
Didero: shoot-outs die twice
theblakdeth: try pyromancy
Didero: First try!
thraximore: seabatClap
hermatic1: Well done
matthaus_c: seabatClap
BusTed: Just gotta poke 'em out.
thraximore: it's the GOOD kush

Tom_Bruise: "Such a good shinobi, I lost my arm in a sword fight. Yep."
NightValien28: its the orange coat
Didero: garden hose
Juliamon: Nose
theblakdeth: if you wear your hair like that, everyone will think you're a skilled shinobi

matthaus_c: now you won't die until the next idol :p
Didero: Kappa
TXC2: sorry the what now?
TXC2: now that was a classic Tenchu move
theblakdeth: he wasn't a bard, he didn't have a lute
Phaers: loot box also
Kazman20a: above you I believe
thraximore: that WOULD be cool. dunno
Styxseus: :D
NightValien28: WOOOOOOOOOooooo
niccus: is he ok
NightValien28: the saddest wooo
matthaus_c: too real
Leonhart321: ha
Styxseus: Those might be the best enemies in the game
Wyatt46692: I'm really interested to see how Ben navigates this area
thraximore: This is one of my favorite areas, inside
theblakdeth: No joke, I cleared the entirety of the game before I found that hole in the window. I almost quit the game because I didn't know where else to go
thraximore: sure did
TehAmelie: how goes the war on shadows?
TXC2: hello TehAmelie welcome
Styxseus: The broken ceiling tiles, indicating this is where and how he usually lands :P
Zaghrog: steam stuttering for anyone else? Or is it just me?
Traion: stream is fine on my end
Kyir: Seems find to me
Kazman20a: It is good for me
GwalchmaiOfHouseParadox: Looks good to me
Zaghrog: ok
thraximore: just murdering civilians D:
Kyir: That nun didn't stand a chance
thraximore: jk I did it too
Traion: Benjamin "Granma stabber" Wheeler
Traion: I think you stepped on some plates, broke them, and alerted him
Didero: "This isn't where I parked my car!"
theblakdeth: casual Tai Chi in the hallway
Kyir: That was pretty perfect
Traion: That is what perfect training does LUL
thraximore: 9/10 choreography
Tom_Bruise: I love how these three beams with 6 inch gaps between them function as cover
Didero: What can you use scrap iron for?
theblakdeth: no spoilerino
Traion: Ben, only cowards don't jump down the big bottomless hole in the middle of a tower Kappa
Didero: Oh, I thought Ben already knew what to use the iron for and that I just missed it
Traion: Ben does know, it is for prosthetic upgrades
Traion: You unlock new versions of your prosthetic tools @didero
Leonhart321: Probably both
thraximore: funny how most people in this game fall into one or both of those categories
Didero: Wait, isn't that a pretty flimsy door? What do they mean "doesn't open from this side"? Just hack it down!
Didero: @Traion Ah, thanks
theblakdeth: those things are so useless
Didero: Just throwin' a whole pottery store down there
matthaus_c: my man's better trained than that
TXC2: of course its not a Greek wedding, we don't have like 80 cousins here
TXC2: Kappa
matthaus_c: learning these weirdos is a big step tbh
Traion: Dying to a man without pants. The way everyone wants to go
Didero: You're still doing a lot better than I'd probably ever do, Ben, don't be too hard on yourself
Kyir: Those are really tall stairs. Murder on the legs
TXC2: touché Wheeler
matthaus_c: and none of them wear pants
Tom_Bruise: besides, where's the crazy old guy with the windex? (I know nothing about greek weddings except My Big Fat Greek Wedding)
Traion: I mean Japanese culture does value conformity Kappa
TehAmelie: he had it made at the sword longer store
TXC2: Tom_Bruise same :p
Traion: B neutral
Kyir: That thrust just comes out really fast
Didero: Maybe that's the icon for "unblockable attack"?
ContingentCat: c'mon Ben it's not polite to ask men about the length of their sword
NightValien28: either dodge neutral or towards the attack
Styxseus: It says B neutral, but forward seems to help with positioning
thraximore: I legit trained myself for hours on these enemies, it helped me "get" the mechanics
Traion: If you push slightly to the side when pushing forward it can mess up the Mikiri
BrowneePoints: That's a wise kid
Traion: Kuro is a good kid
thraximore: watch out, one of these idols COULD be a mimic LUL
Traion: I checked the credits Adam Savidan didn't make this game @thraximore Kappa
TXC2: thraximore don't you put that evil out into the world!
thraximore: an old soul, some might call him
TehAmelie: this crafting system is very hands on
TehAmelie: hand, anyway
thraximore: pft
Traion: You need to equip the new versions btw it doesn't upgrade it unlocks a new version
thraximore: does it though
Traion: It doesn't because the two upgrades you just bought are strictly better
Vyous: I really like the firecrackers in general
WanderingOmen: firecrackers are dope
Tom_Bruise: if that dude lets you sneak up on him, the samurai code is worthless
Styxseus: Oh this dude
thraximore: This guy is fun :)
Didero: I don't want to be negative but this dude seems good at swordfighting
NewtyNewts: Ah, I remember fighting this gy
Kyir: He's some kind of Ashina Elite it seems like
Tom_Bruise: lesson learned; spear start-up frames baaad
Wyatt46692: This is the "No, really. You should try pyromancy" mini-boss
accountmadeforants: This guy's great
NewtyNewts: He's got that iai slash.
Traion: I think that attack might be only parryable not blockable?
TXC2: ah we've got an Iaido guy, someone call Anubis
matthaus_c: I love how these fuckers be swinging nodachi with one hand like it's nothing
accountmadeforants: Dispel lingering curses?
TXC2: we'd find out?
accountmadeforants: (Tapping on the table, that is)
thraximore: I can anecdotally report that yes, this boss can be beat without parrying
Tom_Bruise: yo I think this dude's pretty good at this whole swordfighting thing
matthaus_c: return to chimp
accountmadeforants: thraximore I feel like you'd have to be very lucky or exploit something to do that.
Leonhart321: The dance of our people
Traion: That sword wiggle was basically my idle stance in this game,3
thraximore: @accountmadeforants I just... sidestepped every time I saw the sword glint
thraximore: It wasn't good, I should have just learned to parry LUL
matthaus_c: the sword wiggle is how I say hello in pvp
BusTed: "No wait, I said time out!"
thraximore: ended up hurting me later
DVio141: The wiggle must be done, it is an unwritten rule
matthaus_c: in other games, ofc :p
TehAmelie: i saw someone today who was mad at this game for being unfair since there's opponents you can't dodge or block. don't know if they had heard of parrying
accountmadeforants: Oh, I guess that works. But doesn't he do side-swipes, too?
Styxseus: It's the "Hi other player!" *waves with sword intsead of hand*
Tom_Bruise: oh joy, this dude has two bars
accountmadeforants: Yeah
TXC2: I feel like if From soft got rid of sword/shield wiggle, more people would complain about that then anything else :P
Kyir: Boss is cheating by keeping that attack in reserve
thraximore: very close
Kyir: Close!
Traion: Boss got you with the fake out
accountmadeforants: Image training
Leonhart321: We have already defeated you
AbyssEtc: how we all doin today? :)

krfsm: so that's good
Traion: Watching Ben play this I'm noticing how many cleverly placed items there are to draw the players attention to something
krfsm: and had a glass of nice Valpolicella to go with it
AbyssEtc: @matthaus_c cheers to that; doin great
Phaers: tap tap concede
ContingentCat: oh no not the Fountainhead
Tom_Bruise: say whaaat aerial lightning parries?!
Didero: Simply learn to channel lightning, apparently
TehAmelie: you can lightningbend but only while not grounded?
thraximore: it's basically another form of Mikiri counter tbh
DVio141: Lightning reversal feels so damn swag
BrowneePoints: Redirect lightning chat, not bend it
TXC2: if Zuko could it why can't we? Kappa
Traion: We haven't seen lightning, probably just something they cut Kappa
Fanklok: Wow sounds like someone ad From played MGR Revengeance, parry literally anything
Leonhart321: Iroh did it better
TXC2: "Iroh did what better?" "yes"
Traion: I actually meant items like that eel liver to draw you towards the scroll that teaches you lightning reversa
Traion: reversal
Didero: What does that red glow signify? Or is it just mood lighting?
Traion: @fanklok oh there is some wild stuff we'll be parrying before we are done ;)
TehAmelie: man i bet Pliny the Elder wishes he has thought of eating eel livers to gain lightning powers

Magikchicken: Did you just murder an old lady?
DVio141: That poor old lady
Mr_Horrible: she was a narc
TXC2: a high enough intimidation score is the same as a high enough stealth score
TehAmelie: no ranged weapons whatsoever?
Tom_Bruise: this game's full of old ladies, and they *all* have it comin'
Magikchicken: What's the story here, I joined with no context
TehAmelie: do you maybe have more variety of weapons in your arm than everyone else has in their whole reportoire combined?
TXC2: Magikchicken bad sword people kidnap child lord, we go rescue child lord, sword go brrr
Mr_Horrible: @Magikchicken the young lord we're pledged to got kidnapped, now we have to ninja-rescue him
Magikchicken: Ahh okay. Did the old ladies kidnap child lord extra hard, and that's why they have it coming?
Mr_Horrible: they're complicit
saucemaster5000: we're sexy megaman
Traion: @magikchicken We are a shinobi, our Lord is a sweet kid who is being held by his distant family. We want to rescue boi, also we can't die because of some power the boi has that these people want to exploit
Magikchicken: I just want to confirm that I can feel okay about the murdering of weaponless people :P
Didero: The only thing better than a sword is two swords, after all
Magikchicken: (Or do they call for help then pull a knife on you if they see you?)
Mr_Horrible: ^
TehAmelie: it's made of a poisonous metal? uranium probably?
BusTed: tqsKnife
Mr_Horrible: there's enemies in the game that act as lookouts
TXC2: "NOOOOO!"
Magikchicken: Got it!
Traion: They alert everyone if they spot you @magikchicken
Magikchicken: Thanks :)
Traion: This area is gorgeous
Didero: It's a FromSoft game, there's ALWAYS a bad guy nearby
TXC2: I love that that kid says "A Knife!" like he has discovered the new world :p
Magikchicken: A kill of necessity, then. They're in your way, and deliberately so
Didero: Did you remember to bring a fishing rod?
Magikchicken: Very good, carry on
Magikchicken: :)
Mr_Horrible: *Shinobi Prosthetic turns into an ultralight 9000 fishing rod*
Traion: You are gonna be afraid that anyone has lightning now until you finally find a lightning person
Mr_Horrible: it's still weird to think about a Souls game with verticality and jumping
Didero: Finally a thing Twitch Chat can help with
Traion: Not enough salt? Twitch Chat is here to help!
RAICx: Not enough salt? No worries, twitch chat is here!
TXC2: what if nobody has lightning and the games is just gaslighting us?
RAICx: Traion Hah LUL
Mr_Horrible: "We'll have to start posting on the anime boards..."
Magikchicken: Boiling water is costly
Tom_Bruise: "Yea, I got your salt right here!" *just pwns the fuck outta these guys*
Traion: Large scale salt extraction from oceans is surprisingly recent
Magikchicken: But yeah there's some deep info around how salt was an expensive resource
thraximore: wow, you did chat's work for us
TXC2: isn't almost all salt mined from the earth? :p
niccus: everyone knows that japan is a peninsula
thraximore: true
Traion: Nowadays a lot is sea salt @txc2
saucemaster5000: save balloons for kuro's endgame birthday party level

thraximore: no time for MONKEYING around
Fanklok: Oh hey twitch chat is there with you
objectivefailure: Suddenly a wild Twitch chat appeared.
Mr_Horrible: booooo
WaltzMaster1: cannibalism
Juliamon: BOOOO
saucemaster5000: I'm sure there's not too many monkeys to fight in this game
nuninman: boo
TXC2: time to earn that banana
Mr_Horrible: it *was* good, but boooooooo
thraximore: umbral4Wut I didn't get it
Didero: Luckily for you, I'm too dumb to get that joke!
thraximore: saru
Magikchicken: I'm loving the meme references
Magikchicken: "What have you got there Sekiro? A KNIFE"
TXC2: it's a boo of envy
Magikchicken: "Why are you booing me? I'm right!"
Mr_Horrible: it's like Salieri booing Mozart
Mr_Horrible: Didero I'm fairly certain he's played through it at least once on LRR streams
Traion: Adam has played through this 7 or 8 times on stream @didero
Mr_Horrible: and more than that on his home stream
Didero: I know, but why do I then only remember THIS part?
thraximore: @Didero Yeah i remember him being in this area last time he played Sekiro
Didero: Explain my brain to me, Twitch chat!
Mr_Horrible: because brains be weird yo
Mr_Horrible: electric meat lumps
Traion: There were monkeys here, brain like monkey @didero
TXC2: "brain brain what is brain?"
TXC2: !break

Tom_Bruise: was there supposed to be laughter in between? was that a joke? If so, goodjokestreamer
Leonhart321: @Didero You to mine first. Spoilers, you may be here while
benjamin_wheeler: The only time there was a Sekiro LRR stream was a one off w/ Adam?
Traion: I think so
Mr_Horrible: oh, maybe? I thought he played it through on LRR, but maybe it was just like a Newday Tuesday?
benjamin_wheeler: Newday Tuesday
benjamin_wheeler: yeah that's the only one, thus this stream getting to exist
Mr_Horrible: huh, we'll be one of those monkeys' uncle
Fanklok: There being a full play through of a game doesn't stop LRR from doing it multiple times
Mr_Horrible: *I'll be, darnit
Didero: Man, I'd forgotten abou Newday Tuesday
Fanklok: How many times has every resident evil been done here?
Traion: Please @mr_horrible these monkeys have standards about who they get into relationships with Kappa
Traion: Most of them once, RE6 twice, RE 7 like 3 or 4 times
Mr_Horrible: LUL
Didero: yeah but the Let's Nope Boys do whatever they want
Fanklok: I've been playing Diablo 3 and it absolutely refuses to give me the last thing I need for my build. I had one drop when I was level 8 and never again
Traion: If you try to stop the LN bois Chat has their back ;)
benjamin_wheeler: @Fanklok true, but I more or less made sure this wasn't a double before pitching it
TXC2: and we're back
Traion: Hey Ben? Piglet called, she loves you
mowdownjoe: Ook ook
Fanklok: Monkey? Snow? Is this an Onsen episode
Leonhart321: Become unto monke
TXC2: SMASH THE STATE!
TXC2: feel the eel?
Leonhart321: You should, unagi is delicious
Leonhart321: RIP
TehAmelie: is it the eel deal?
Traion: Just because that sculptor's idol was called Great Serpent Shrine, you think there is a snake here?
Didero: Time to leap off this cliff to verify!
Traion: Ben is paranoid about lightning
matthaus_c: fromsoft will kill you with lightning at every opportunity
Tom_Bruise: oh fuck, it's mummies
TXC2: it's a gun stick
Tom_Bruise: Lightning mummies, even?
TehAmelie: a gun on a stick. what will they think of next
Traion: Gunspear
Didero: Hah, can't shoot me when I'm busy stabbing this dude in th neck!
thraximore: mummykies
TXC2: weird, hairless monkeys
Didero: Press X To Doubt
ContingentCat: I trust you
Traion: Press X to pay respects
TXC2: x not gonna give it to ya
Didero: WAIT, we've been watching a mirrored Ben this whole time?!
thraximore: I blame Windows update
ContingentCat: blame windows update
Leonhart321: You thought you were watching Ben, but in fact, you were watching Neb all along

TXC2: the system works
Didero: go home, eat beads!
satyropodobny: who else but Wheeler
matthaus_c: "why can't I get past the piss mist"
BrowneePoints: This part is pretty open ended for exploration
Leonhart321: Kudos to that guy, he shot you in mid air
Didero: Are we not all the monkies you need?
TXC2: "you can't hit a moving target" (researches ballistics) "oh no?"
Traion: Yes this is clearly a monkey sanctuary and these are the wildlife rangers
shurtal: nah, it's a Board Game Adaptation of Barrel of Monkies
SkylerRingtail: Curious George is problematic now? I must've missed something
saucemaster5000: I think they dropped the charges on curious george
ContingentCat: wait how is curious george problematic?
Leonhart321: Too curious for his own good
Didero: Ok, another dumb question: Level 4 of what?
TheThirdTail: 4 skill points - top right bar
Mr_Horrible: no, GEX! D:

Leonhart321: Tactical roll
TheThirdTail: @TheThirdTail Ah, sorry, it only shows up when he gets exp
Traion: @didero it only shows up briefly when we get xp after killing someone
Didero: @TheThirdTail Oh phew, I was starting to doubt myself. I saw it now, thanks!
TheThirdTail: np, I forgot it doesn't always show
matthaus_c: monke friend?
Didero: I didn't realise until now that we even GOT xp >_>
matthaus_c: wait there's xp in this game? :p
Didero: Steal his hat!
matthaus_c: you act as if it couldn't be monkeys *and* guns
Traion: There are only 4 different upgrade things in this game not counting money, how could you miss one @didero Kappa
Fanklok: It could be moneys with guns
TXC2: it's gun monkeys?
Statist42: what? guns at the gunfort?
Tom_Bruise: it's actually worst; gun monkeys
Mr_Horrible: everyone's favorite gameshow
Mr_Horrible: Monkey or Gun?
Didero: Nobody told us this gun fort was difficult to approach!
JAGxTERRA: bamboo snipers?
TXC2: "it's boats, with guns, gunboats"
matthaus_c: don't worry, he always rolls snake eyes
Traion: My favourite miniboss
TheThirdTail: Ahhh, Shirafuji, my old nemesis
thraximore: I'm grabbing onto my gamer does that help
Didero: I'm tightly gripping my keyboard, am I helping
Traion: You can always deflect bullets mid air
BrowneePoints: Oooooh, Wheeler found Gunpowder Valley
TXC2: any one elses heart stop from that near fall? :p
BrowneePoints: (also the game doesn't make a good job of showing it Wheeler, but these are all women)
Traion: This is my favourite miniboss in the game. The approach is cool, the arena is cool, her fighting style is rad as hell

TXC2: guns and naginata
Leonhart321: Oh, those were based in historical accuracy? I did not know that
thraximore: well I want to get into this
BrowneePoints: @thraximore yep. Based on actual historical fact
Didero: Wheeler, you're good at sound effects
thraximore: this sounds awesome
ContingentCat: I should watch Princess Monnoke again
thraximore: @ContingentCat always be watching Mononoke
Leonhart321: Guess I add another reason to the list of why Princess Mononoke is the best Ghibli film
matthaus_c: Lady Eboshi best mom
Didero: I know I"ve watched Mononoke once, but I don't remember a lot of it
Traion: It is a great movie @didero visually stunning
Didero: Simply dodge by jumping off a cliff, can't get hit while plummeting Kappa
thraximore: That reminds me, I need to get a frame for my Mononoke movie poster
Didero: @Traion I do remember there was quite a bit more blood than I was expecting :p
TXC2: the movie gets VERY weird at the end though :p
matthaus_c: ayyyy first rot essences
matthaus_c: seabatClap
matthaus_c: benginLol
Leonhart321: Ah, I wondered which one was the Charmed One
Luca0483: wheelerPog
Traion: The Memorial Mob are the merchants you found.
SkylerRingtail: What do rot essences do?
TXC2: SkylerRingtail cure dragon rot presumably
kristian_fischer: "MISTAKES WERE MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADE!!!"
Mangledpixel: where are you jumping to? death
Traion: @skylerringtail mechanically they reduce the chance to keep our stuff when we die. Story wise they represent the people afflicted by the dragonrot a disease we are creating by drawing on the life-force of others to revive
Traion: You can parry them yes
Leonhart321: Yes, but not if you get caught in the perilous
dweebert91: She never has to reload?
kristian_fischer: "Can I parry the pointblank shotgun blasts?"
matthaus_c: yea you can cut through bullets with a butter knife
Traion: She has rule of cool magic don't worry about it @dweebert91
Fanklok: If popular video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 taugh tus anything it's don';t bring a gun to a knife fight
thraximore: @matthaus_c I saw that on Alex's twitter
matthaus_c: that video is so rad
Kyir: Good save
Traion: No firelink katana guy cheese for you Wheeler
matthaus_c: I thought the firelink katana guy cheese was just starting Sorcerer lrrBEEJ
TXC2: if it's a lead bullet, it makes some sense given how soft lead is
Leonhart321: Is it crossing the streams too much that I'm having Korean liquer while watching a playthrough of a Japanese game?
Traion: We all now the real way to defeat katana guy is to jump on the roof and use a bow, like Myazaki intended Kappa
matthaus_c: beat her like she's a goomba
Didero: simply Mario her to death

Leonhart321: Boooooooii
LibraryWitchKei: Show gun pls
Didero: show gun?
matthaus_c: it keeps her poise from regenerating
LibraryWitchKei: In before Wheeler sends himself over the cliff
Leonhart321: If it works, it works
Traion: Do what?
Traion: No
Kyir: You can start charging Ichimonji in midair, but that's all that comes to mind
Leonhart321: Off the top of my head, I don't think so
Traion: Marry me Shirafuji
Tregelen: i remember snake eyes being real pisser
Tregelen: a*
Didero: Did you just tell yourself to git gud? That's our job!
Traion: No our job is to tell him to Try Parrymancy @didero
Leonhart321: Are you on about her tell regarding her perilous?
Traion: Avoiding a red attack sweep with A triggers the mario
Tom_Bruise: "Okay, didn't even let me get up before hacking away, cool cool"
Didero: @Traion Oh, right. But that's basically the same thing :p
Tregelen: iirc the snake eyes grab can be parried but the timing is wierd
Officinalis: These ladies are the absolute worst.
Leonhart321: @Tregelen I thought it was defined as a grab?
Tom_Bruise: "Did... did that guy I *just* fought just jump off a cliff?"
Tregelen: a grab with a gun barrel, i swear it works but dodging is probably easier
Officinalis: I've seen speedrunners do the parry, but its super risky.
MrOrderlyChaos: You can, and the timing is indeed weird. Better just to dodge
matthaus_c: I think she technically had high ground there
Kyir: That grab is just mean
Didero: Using the tools you're given to overcome a challenge? How corny!
matthaus_c: using the silver pendant on manus? that's cheese!
Traion: You took "reduced posture damage taken" sugar
Kyir: She's just playing a whole other game
Traion: Clearly we need to attach a gun to our sword to keep up with her. as
TheJagerbombastic: <message deleted>Try setting the boss on fire/use fire tools

thraximore: !duh

MagicalAttackGecko: Try pyromancy?
Traion: But Ben have you tried pyromancy? Kappa
Kyir: If it were me, I would simply beat the boss
Fanklok: I think you mean parrymancy

LRRbot: Quote #2179: "You're gonna jack the stream? That's dangerous, Ian!" —Heather [2016-03-27]
Traion: Yeah the Buddha statue is really kind to block all those shots for us @didero
Leonhart321: @Traion So do I, but I'm not going to grab the steering wheel while someone else is driving
Traion: I can't even get mad about her grab, it just looks so cool
accountmadeforants: Sekiro has an actual "Guess I'll Die" button, which is why it is the perfect video game.
Didero: @Traion more like buddy-ha, amirite
Traion: @didero LUL
spleenlord: Just got here and I don't know this game very well. Have we reached the monkeys yet?
TXC2: spleenlord yeap
Traion: We've killed three whole monkeys
accountmadeforants: Other standouts are the Tribes franchise, which lets you die with just one press of K. (Unless you're playing Areal Assault, I guess.)
spleenlord: Excellent. I will have to find that in the VOD
Leonhart321: 3 monkeys and many geckos
Mangledpixel: accountmadeforants ah, but does it have a dedicated 'swear' button?
accountmadeforants: Mangledpixel Yes, though the swear is "Shazbot!"
Mangledpixel: like 50 cent blood on the sand
Leonhart321: Language!
TXC2: "that's it, I'm getting me mallet!"
Traion: Only thing that could make this fight better is Horseboi on top of the rock cheerleading at the top of his lungs
TheJagerbombastic: My bad Ben! Please continue to put in the work. I'll silently sit in my shame corner. We believe in you!
Didero: Shame Chame-ber
Leonhart321: It's the shame stands, and we're all in them together
Tom_Bruise: Welcome, to the Dumb-derdome
accountmadeforants: Wait... a shotgun... meaty hits, instantly locking you in the corner... are we fighting Elphelt?
Leonhart321: @Tom_Bruise So when Wheeler wins, does that mean we'll have gone Beyond Dumb-erdome?
Tom_Bruise: @Leonhart321 yep, and once we're Beyond Dumb-derdome, Stupid Road awaits
Didero: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Rhythm Cafe (Heather and Ian continue their never-ending quest to play ALL THE RHYTHM GAMES! Game: Wandersong) at Sun 04:00 PM PDT (3:05 from now).
Traion: Are the shame stands just Mulder's litterbox?
Kyir: 3 more hours to beat this boss
accountmadeforants: Rhythm Café is tomorrow (in this timezone, anyway :p )
Didero: There's also a stream tomorrow, so we've got time
Traion: Oh I totally understand
Didero: Do we have gourd seeds to give the lady?
accountmadeforants: Yes, but there are so many other things to have to kill!
Didero: And one seed equals one refilll, right?
Kyir: More gourd is always good
Traion: Yes we have 5 drinks now @didero
Didero: Great, thanks!
Traion: Also the item description of the gourd basically says "don't worry about it" on the topic of why it works like that @didero
Didero: Thanks for answering all my questions, chat. They're usually pretty basic, but you're always friendly about it lrrHEART
NotCainNorAbel: well...she didn't kill you
accountmadeforants: Lady Butterfly had one bowm'ns, this lady has so many gunw'm'ns.
notso_surprisingreveal: good luck Ben! This looks tough
Kyir: Lady Butterfly didn't have a sweet gun

accountmadeforants: You are going to have to go all out, just this once?
Didero: That's a good quote
Traion: @didero I am pretty confident every time you ask a question there are at least 10 other people that don't know, so you are helping them too by asking <3

LRRbot: Quote #7760: "Miyazaki wanted to make a non-problematic Curious George." —Wheeler, on Sekiro: Shadows die twice [2021-09-05]
fragilepaper: @Didero Like me, I don't know much about the game so thank you for asking!
TXC2: asking questions are how we learn Didero
Didero: @Traion Didn't think of that!
Didero: @fragilepaper Yay, we're learning together!
fragilepaper: PrideRise
Fanklok: Maybe if she gets shot she'll find out that it's not a very good experience and she'll stop shooting people
accountmadeforants: "Oh my God, this is what I've been doing to people?"
Leonhart321: She's just standing there and shooting me. I doubt she adheres to Bushido at all
Traion: She is the counter for the dark souls reflex of get some distance and heal
Kyir: Where IS mario?
Didero: But Ben, why didn't you simply not get hit? Kappa
accountmadeforants: Assuming they're sincere questions, and not rhethorical/trolling, yeah
Kyir: This feels like one of those bosses that really gets in your head over multiple attempts
pyrojakk: Hey chat, I missed most of the stream! Did ben finally defeat lady butterfly?
accountmadeforants: That was the last thing yesterday pyrojakk
accountmadeforants: So yes!
pyrojakk: Nice! Did he ever learn of the shuriken technique?
Traion: @pyrojakk he defeated her on his very last overtime attempt, and no he did not
Didero: I don't understand why she even tries to pummel us if she's got a boomstick with infinite ammo
pyrojakk: Wow, so he ust toughed it out
pyrojakk: rough
accountmadeforants: seabatHITBOX
Leonhart321: @Didero With a barrel that long, could you aim it that close?
Traion: Because it looks cool @didero
pyrojakk: And now he's on snake eyes, this boss SUCKS
Didero: @Leonhart321 She keeps killing us, so I assume yes :p
ComradeSteve: @pyrojakk agreed
Leonhart321: @Leonhart321 Touche
Traion: Don't you insult my wife that way @pyrojakk Kappa
Fanklok: Now I'm curious if it's possible to get a ring out in this fight or if there's a very low invisible wall blocking it. Does anyone know?
ComradeSteve: @Fanklok Not likely, and I think they patched so any miniboss ringouts result in a reset
pyrojakk: @Traion Saying she SUCKS?! Kappa
Fanklok: Lame
Traion: You mean getting her to fall of the cliff @fanklok ? You cannot
Traion: The difficult thing about her is that you don't really have a safe distance with her
Easilycrazyhat: This is not a good time to fuck around, frames, please.
pyrojakk: This is one of the fights that is not very clear, too...
matthaus_c: the most attractive thing on a woman is being able to effectively attack you from any range :)
Traion: Hey James? We dropped a couple frames, buy Wheeler a 3080 please kthxbai
Didero: Can we at least steal her kick move? Then we could just "This is Sparta!" her off this cliff!
fragilepaper: goodbye PrideLaugh
Traion: These falls will never not be funny to me
matthaus_c: we're here for however long you wanna be here, wheels
fragilepaper: ^^^
Traion: Oh we are bringing out the big boy sugar. She is going down
Leonhart321: I've got nothing but time
Traion: Speak for yourself @matthaus_c I'll revolt when he starts stealing Heather's time :p
matthaus_c: @Traion I don't think we need to revolt, Heather would just break through his wall like Kool-Aid Man :p
Chulump: oh no! It's wheeler!
Traion: Nah she doesn't get her hands dirty, she'd send Ian to do it @matthaus_c LUL
ivdar: Sekiro, bosses die twice
Traion: I'm sure Graham and Paul will be really upset with you providing extra content for us. Furious even
Traion: James just went live should I ask him for permission to go overtime? Kappa
matthaus_c: in that case, we'd just hear the mini driving through Wheeler and Kiefer's furniture
Chulump: good stuff
Babcom: Yeah!
spleenlord: Very nice
pyrojakk: Let's go!!
Leonhart321: One down
matthaus_c: let's goooooo seabatClap
TXC2: er we go!
ivdar: he's gaming!
Didero: ooooh-wooaaah, we're halfway theeeeeheeeere, ooooh-woah, living on a prayer
Traion: Every time she drives Ben towards the cliff where the others can shoot him I tense up
ivdar: she boomed ya
Leonhart321: Same
accountmadeforants: Heroic
Syntheticuh: is the yellow bar on the bottom our health?
Leonhart321: Posture
pyrojakk: @Syntheticuh No, it's our posture, our health is covered by ben's cam
matthaus_c: ^ wheeler is over our health
Babcom: Eal live!
Syntheticuh: ahhhh ok
Traion: @syntheticuh our posture if it fills we get briefly stunned
matthaus_c: sugar he's goin' down swinging

saucemaster5000: what a cliffhanger
TXC2: matthaus_c thought the same thing :p
Leonhart321: Go out on a high and leave them hanging. That's the Wheeler Way
ivdar: sudden deathblow overtime
Didero: Good move to pretend you couldn't defeat her earlier, just to make the ending that much sweeter
