CAKHost: Hello everyone and Ben!
Didero: Ben's not an everyone?
benjamin_wheeler: I'm a bit special
benjamin_wheeler: I've got that streamer status
Coloneljesus: he becomes an everyone only after 2 coffees
TXC2: Special like Special K
accountmadeforants: Bens are excluded for legal reasons related to old benediction treatises.
Coloneljesus: Spekial?
Didero: benjamin_wheeler Apparently not special enough to be a mod here, 'just' a VIP :p
benjamin_wheeler: IDK if my moderation style would necessarily jive
benjamin_wheeler: I like banning people too much
Coloneljesus: everyone needs a good banning now and then
Joda011980: goodevening everyone
Coloneljesus: it's how my parents raised me and look at me now
CAKHost: I think if chat is still around after Adam, I think we can handle Ben's mod status :P
benjamin_wheeler: @Coloneljesus ranked up to colonel
TXC2: here we GO!
thraximore: Where there's a will there's a way
TXC2: it's not a "hey chat" question
Didero: Soundboards Die Twice
penguinoof1: is sekiro worth buying
accountmadeforants: Castlevania: Shadows of the Night Die Twice
CAKHost: And now that I am aware that I may have person in-ear sound issues, I am hyper aware of me not hearing, hearing or maybe hearing too much XD
Coloneljesus: u gonna keep youtube on autoplay and then be surprised by the next video starting?
TXC2: penguinoof1 if you're into dark souls type games, yes

Psychic_Ketchup: You are in fact right
Coloneljesus: Sekiro of the Colossus
TXC2: hey we're over 20K on that again
Tom_Bruise: Patreon; How else could they pay this man to slash down friendly samurai for little to no reason?
Didero: I've been wondering what a good 'entry-level' Soulslike game is, doesn't even necessarily have to be by FromSoft
accountmadeforants: You wake up having to fight the urge to hibernate.
Coloneljesus: DS3, hollow knight
Didero: What makes DS3 better than Sekiro for this?
Didero: Oh right, I think I own Hollow Knight
TXC2: Didero movement is easier to learn in DS3
Didero: Oh no, did your son lock you out of your own house?
Didero: @TXC2 Oh yeah, Sekiro seems to have a lot of movement things
Coloneljesus: good thing in hollow knight is you can't really fuck up your build
Psychic_Ketchup: Some dingus is summoning ghosts on large ape's grave
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.
thraximore: have you tried going up and down and then tried the pyromancy katana
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Jump over all the holes.
accountmadeforants: Ben... Sekiro has a sweet katana.
Didero: It's win-win: Either Ben is playing the way you want him to play, OR you get to laugh at him doing things wrong!
Coloneljesus: try pyromancy underwater
Psychic_Ketchup: Fantastic tie, mr emperor
TXC2: Drink Pyromancy Try
Didero: The whole thing about being in the backseat is that you don't have to worry about navigation and you can just enjoy the ride
CAKHost: We need to go classic Soulsborn: Try ramming *puts message behind a corpse laying over a railing*
Coloneljesus: "try hole"
thraximore: Decisions like "do I press R1 two times or three times"
Didero: Game's louder than usual for me to but I don't mind since it's usually a bit quiet IMO
TXC2: hollow Knight is 2d for one thing
Didero: ARE Soulslikes Metroidvanias?
thraximore: You're not just furniture? Weird!
EkstraLangeDruer: @Didero Some are, some aren't I'd say. I would call DS1 a metroidvania but not DS2 or DS3.
thraximore: I always have the shurikens equipped, personally. The other two are flex slots
Didero: In Sekiro you do unlock abilities to be able to go to places you couldn't before, is that enough to make it a Metroidvania?
accountmadeforants: They have the elements people associate with Metroidvanias nowadays, backtracking and currency/exp smoothing out the ride between Proper Upgrades. (Whereas OG Metroids and Metroid-likes just have the Proper Upgrades.)
Coloneljesus: I would not say 2D is a requirement
thraximore: Hm. Not a terrible definition.
Didero: Sorry for starting a definition discussion >_>
Coloneljesus: prevents spoiler discussions :)

Didero: Isn't that exactly what a moat is for?
Coloneljesus: Shimoaties
Didero: I like how this game guides you with items
CAKHost: Wait, you're right Didero
Tom_Bruise: the shinobis are in the moat, the hokages are in the well, the Avatar has vanished, and the cake is a lie. Bad things are occurring.
CAKHost: Assuming they are bad shinobis
accountmadeforants: I'm hearing Super Mario Bros. underwater music in my head now
TXC2: tomb raider level design intensifies :p
CAKHost: Wait was that a koi?
Coloneljesus: @Didero that's something pretty much all soulsborne games do. the guiding with items I mean.
Coloneljesus: sometimes "baiting" is probably a better word than "guiding" tho
accountmadeforants: A carp which has a singular scale, which you can exchange for goods and services.
Didero: Hey, a helpful friend!
TXC2: Coloneljesus so you've met patches then? Kappa
Tom_Bruise: oh no, it's a Shinobi of the Spanish Inquisition
CAKHost: Oh no! :o

Didero: What's a Patches?
Coloneljesus: don't worry about it :)
thraximore: aw
accountmadeforants: Sekiro deliberately doesn't do some of the FromSoft staples.
Psychic_Ketchup: Oh Pot-ches, got it
thraximore: Guess we'll take it
thraximore: @Psychic_Ketchup pft
Coloneljesus: play a soulsborne and you will meet a patches
Tom_Bruise: and here I thought it was Peter Serafinowicz who voiced Pot Guy
thraximore: what is this xD
thraximore: just running in circles
TXC2: Tom_Bruise no, you're thinking of Darth Maul Kappa
thraximore: Living like a Shinobi on the Roof!
Tom_Bruise: @TXC2 nah, that was a different game. Darth Souls, I think
TXC2: :D
Didero: Do those sparklers count as trying pyromancy?
Haroldholmes25: @thraximore Tradition!
Coloneljesus: more like Pyrofancy
IzlanntheLion: have you died twice yet
BrowneePoints: The One Armed Longswordsmen are such pains in the patootie
TXC2: fighting? that sounds hard
TXC2: "ninja like going up, and free 2 day shipping"
Didero: Follow your wood, always good advice
thraximore: Your worst nightmare: a dog!
IzlanntheLion: so do rocketships whats your point
EkstraLangeDruer: Too late to talk now
TXC2: the dreaded roof dog
Didero: Wait, these have red hats too
Didero: Are these shinobi mushroom men?
Tom_Bruise: Golly, even the troglodites are giving you trouble
accountmadeforants: Due to Ninja Density properties, Ninjas tend to separate and naturally expand upwards.
BrowneePoints: I love that we Ninja Monks with the Nezumi. One Armed Purple Ninjas, and Whistling Dive Bomb Tengu Ninjas
Coloneljesus: Ninja are like stonks. only go up
accountmadeforants: Yes, that's why there's no guards there :)
Tregelen: red hats are jerks
BrowneePoints: @Didero I THINK the Red Hats symbolize that they're from the Ministry?
Didero: Double the swords, double the damage
Coloneljesus: red hats hate debian
Tom_Bruise: "Ok, guys, I concede. Could you reset real quick?"
TXC2: Didero God if only that was true in souls games :p
Didero: @BrowneePoints I don't know what 'Ministry' means here, I don't entirely understand the details of the story
Tregelen: you jumped from the other side i think
NightValien28: TXC2 it kinda is but you must never get hit for it to work LUL
hermatic1: evening Ben and chat. Good news plumber came today and all is fixed with my pipes now woohoo. djphoe2Kitty
TXC2: hermatic1 lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
NightValien28: hermatic1 huzzah
Didero: So did that purple dude on the wooden plank also respawn?
NightValien28: fairness is defeat
BrowneePoints: @Didero They don't explain it SUPER clearly, but it seems like the Ashina clan are from the North and are Seclusionist and Isolationist, and the Ministry is like a conglomerate of southern nations
hermatic1: so hoping you are all doing well?
Psychic_Ketchup: We... both have swords?
Tom_Bruise: we're both fighting the same foes; camera issues
BrowneePoints: @Didero While not EXPLICITY Sengoku, the Ashina do have some parallels to Nobunaga

thraximore: Roof dogs! FBtouchdown
Coloneljesus: but there are doogs on woofs
Tom_Bruise: Did that dog just use fireworks?
BrowneePoints: At least the divebombing Kabuki Nightjar isn't there anymore
TXC2: "roof dogs!" "it's pronounced Woof"
Didero: Too bad this dude is all dick

Tom_Bruise: why do the shinobis, as part of their death croaks, bend down to... toot their own horn?
NightValien28: I think its a trap
Didero: Killed by the camera, harsh
NightValien28: oooh they were in sync
ArkhamArchivist: Some kinda "Lone Shadow", huh?
hermatic1: oh no the Gemini brothers
NightValien28: lone shadow my ass
accountmadeforants: Oh look, it's Wingus *AND* Dingus!
Didero: why is he called LONE Shadow Vilehand if he CLEARLY brought a buddy?
Denis_Dobrolubov: He is lone, but he gets to die twice. It is in the title.
CAKHost: He clearly wants to sound cool
accountmadeforants: Sliding's a prerequisite to good techniques as a way to keep you in check :p
Tom_Bruise: that and sliding is also very, very cool. Ask John Vanquish or whatever his name was
hermatic1: there is only one opponent, but he uses mirrors I have seen how that trick is done
Didero: There's no wrong way if you're having fun
Coloneljesus: sounds like kinky advice
Didero: Wait, who's fighting who?
Coloneljesus: ben's fighting gravity
NightValien28: Didero ashina's disciples against the shinobis
Didero: @NightValien28 That's Blue against Purple, right?
Tom_Bruise: Did someone say "Clip that" ?
NightValien28: Didero correct
Didero: Thanks
accountmadeforants: The anchors here are a bit shitty to force you on the right path, it's not a great experience.
beowuuf: lol, well that was certainly an interestingly timed 50 min phone call. How goes the adventures of Father Skeiro and Booooy?
Didero: We're learning!
TXC2: beowuuf we have roof dogs now

TXC2: respect the one v one

BrowneePoints: they are very difficult. you are doing super well
Coloneljesus: 1v1 lets go
beowuuf: oh, wait, the lone shadow that has two health bars? so...the shadow has to die twice?
thraximore: @beowuuf Ha, never thought about that

Didero: That's one way to cure poison :p

Didero: Can't die if you're dead *taps head*

Earthenone: !vaselineorbarcodealloneword
LRRbot: Barcode!
beowuuf: called lone shadow, has friend...
Coloneljesus: pill time?
Didero: @beowuuf Yeah, I said that before you got here too. That's just straight-up false advertising, we should complain to his manager
BrowneePoints: You could try the Iron Fortress too
BrowneePoints: makes it easier to block two enemies
beowuuf: @beowuuf unless the argument is you have the boss, and they only have one shadow (as in person shadowing them) :p
Didero: I think that may be a bit too backseat-y?
Didero: @beowuuf But everybody has got one shadow, so then it's just annoyingly technically correct
saucemaster5000: lone ranger rarely worked alone either -- dudes just liking how a word sounds I guess
Coloneljesus: everyone has as many shadows as they have light sources around them
beowuuf: @beowuuf the best kind of correct, from a certain point of view
Didero: @beowuuf That's not a point of view the Jedi would tell you
BrowneePoints: Oh man I forgot about the spear!
beowuuf: @beowuuf :D
BrowneePoints: fun times

sir_slothing: oh snap we are at this point now, very nice

senkesword: anime first because its a greater power
beowuuf: maybe if we want to kill them we just show then the fnpf vod? It's now up on youtube for ease of distribution
Officinalis: Loved this fight after I figured out a reliable to get him one-on-one.
ContingentCat: god and anime? in this economy?
BrowneePoints: You got this! I believe in you!
Coloneljesus: a man can dream
Didero: A coworker brought up anime the other day, and another coworker asked "What is anime?" and I'm so glad I wasn't the one that had to explain
thraximore: the KICKS
Coloneljesus: "japanese cartoons" not that hard?
beowuuf: believe in the you that is believed in by the chat (who is you)

TXC2: Pengu92 we beat a boss
thraximore: @Coloneljesus ಠ_ಠ

Didero: That is a LOT of hair
NightValien28: welp
NightValien28: papa
CAKHost: Wow, that's a lot of hair
beowuuf: needs more basket on head
thraximore: now THIS is Giant Dad
beowuuf: this is onion knot knight, right?
Pengu92: @TXC2 Basket lady?
Coloneljesus: big daddy
TXC2: Pengu92 no, it was some shadow guy, had a friend
mizzytastic: I love how in this game which while it has fantasy elements is more grounded in reality ... still just has impossibly big men with no explanation
flikerz1: Jeez, kuro gets the best cinematography in this game
beowuuf: lone shadow vilehand
CAKHost: AKA, I'm going to stay and fight my kid
NightValien28: LORGE man
BusTed: sneak sneak sneak
thraximore: huzzah! umbraHype
Didero: This man is the size of two men
TXC2: Dad is twice our size :P
beowuuf: his hair alone is bigger than a person
BrowneePoints: Dad lied to us
Coloneljesus: that's so he can die twice
ContingentCat: nice power stance dad
beowuuf: lrrWOW
Didero: Is it me or does Dad sound drunk/
CAKHost: Sekiro's height must come from his mom?
Officinalis: This is the second fight that made me quit.
thraximore: holding
beowuuf: is this is test?
Coloneljesus: hodl
Traion: Hey Wheeler, hey Chat, good to see I'm not too late for this
Tom_Bruise: So there's two things Avatar can teach us; that deflecting lightning is cool AF, and Dads can be jerks
flikerz1: Eff dad. Eff tradition.
PaperDoopliss: Your understanding is correct
thraximore: Yes.
BusTed: The answer seems clear.
Tom_Bruise: There's more boss fights if you break the code.
BrowneePoints: yep. if you obey you get t he "bad end"
thraximore: Aw
beowuuf: well we didn't come here to lrrEFF spiders
CAKHost: :C
thraximore: Is that because of the speedrunning?
saucemaster5000: obey your parents obvs
Didero: Wow, that seems like a BIG choice that is not explained at all
thraximore: Dissappointing.
Coloneljesus: as is tradition is souls games
TXC2: that's from soft for ya
Coloneljesus: they don't explain shit
Kaorti: Well, that sucks, sorry that happened.
thraximore: Yeah fuck Giant Dad D:<
EkstraLangeDruer: I was kinda hoping to see Ben go Shura by accident
sir_slothing: and thats on character growth for sekiro in game
flikerz1: Dad fight round 2!
Critterbot: The Owl is no pushover though.
accountmadeforants: Obey the code looks like a traditional "what, for real?" instant game over choice.
ContingentCat: yeah fuck you Dad
Didero: Also, Dad pretended he was dead for 5 years
BrowneePoints: that kid trusts you and cares about you
beowuuf: this is benjamin "dammit i forgot the funny nickname oh well too late now" wheeler
Pengu92: Is "Obey the Iron Code" basically "Link the Fire"?
accountmadeforants: "Adoptive dad, you're a bad influence on my adopted son"
Coloneljesus: dad is a fucking crybaby
EkstraLangeDruer: It's a bit harsh that you've had a few fake choices throughout the game and then you get a super impactful one with no warning
ArkhamArchivist: I understand, I just disagree
beowuuf: cause my father is dead and you suck *kick*
letfireraindown: "Why? You claimed to have died back in that memory years ago! Why are you here?"
Coloneljesus: first choice is not even a choice
ContingentCat: oh hello there Maulder
Coloneljesus: you heard about dad dick. now get ready for dad sword
Tom_Bruise: well it's like that thing in Bloodborne; it's the option for when the player thinks "Fuck this, I want it to be over."
accountmadeforants: "Have it your way™"
TXC2: have it your way, we're going to Burger King
sir_slothing: you get a choice earlier about breaking the code and you're not allowed to, but sekiro as a person grows to see Kurt as more important that his family
Didero: First blood!
Traion: This is a rad fight
beowuuf: so is this the pickles or no pickles option?
thraximore: No you're just that good a gamer :D
Traion: Spoiler Alert, Benny Boi is gonna wreck this nerd
Tom_Bruise: didn't think Gouken would spam this much
beowuuf: the secret to this fight is that you're fighting another player Kappa
Didero: I assume if you die you don't get to retake that choice?
mizzytastic: I believe this was Miyazaki's favourite boss
thraximore: @mizzytastic I believe that :D
thraximore: Yeah this guy is sneaky
Traion: @didero you start at the second cutscene post choice yes
Didero: He throws that smokebomb so delicately
thraximore: He fights real dirty, it's great
BrowneePoints: This fight is REALLY good. But he is a stinky buttcheek and a half
Coloneljesus: he is a shinobi after all. they don't fight fair
thraximore: It's the closest this game gets to fighting yourself, really
beowuuf: quite a nice way, if you're not invested in the story, to still have the player feel the same way about the character through gameplay :p
thraximore: You both have two health bars, you both use shinobi tools and jump around
beowuuf: it's a trick?
beowuuf: lol
Psychic_Ketchup: Our dad SUCKS!
flikerz1: I love this fight. It rewards diverse move and equipment sets as well as resource management. Allot of the other fights rely on swordplay and spamming a single powerful move.
beowuuf: what a shit
sir_slothing: he basically uses your tools against you with the shurikens and firecrackers and the such
ContingentCat: lrrWOW playing possum dad? really?
Tom_Bruise: Man, Ozai is such a jerkhole in this game
accountmadeforants: You fool! You utter melon! I was only pretending!
Coloneljesus: is this uncle Iroh?
thraximore: @Coloneljesus goodness no
thraximore: Iroh ain't a sack o' crap
beowuuf: daddy owl giant
dukeofbread: guck
flikerz1: Poison
ContingentCat: gross
thraximore: he got his GOO everywhere
TXC2: Coloneljesus hell no, Iroh would roll the motherfucker in 2 seconds flat
Psychic_Ketchup: Dad just carries poisonous goo with him
Didero: Literal opposite of Iroh in very way
Didero: I should rewatch Avatar...
Critterbot: That's a cheap trick!
Tom_Bruise: Iroh is the scroll that taught Sekiro how to deflect lightning
Tom_Bruise: Ozai is the dad that's an asshole
dukeofbread: nice
Pengu92: WHAT
thraximore: you got MIKIRI'D
beowuuf: WOW
Psychic_Ketchup: Oh yeah he mikiri counters you
flikerz1: Can you get that posture restore as the player?
Coloneljesus: schooled
sir_slothing: Omg yessss I was so excited to see if you'd get the mirikyri counter used on you
thraximore: Like I said, it really is like fighting yourself
TXC2: that was a good run up to that point
Didero: You were very impressive regardless
PaperDoopliss: @flikerz1 You can't, but holding down block speeds your posture recovery up a lot
Traion: @flikerz1 Ichimonji kinda does that
Pengu92: Okay, he's as good as dead now. Every boss gets 1
Critterbot: You did good though considering it was your very first try.
thraximore: Sekiro's run cycle always makes me laugh
thraximore: little footsies
Traion: You died again on the same healthbar so your revives were still locked
sir_slothing: you died second stage so you got black barred
Tom_Bruise: I can't believe you can't believe you got punished for a bad thing you did in this game
beowuuf: hiding a dragon?
mizzytastic: if you get low enough maybe he's so big he'll go over you?
Traion: Hey dad, this is no ordinary monkey. This is a duelist called Wheeler. You stand no chance
dukeofbread: Owl dad: insubordinate and churlish
TXC2: killed by our own dad, the way nature intended
Didero: Ben what are you gonna do?
Didero: Grind for divine confetti? Kappa
letfireraindown: you're gonna kill him?
BrowneePoints: Not even's Oedipus's?
beowuuf: can you let us know or is it a surprise?
Tom_Bruise: you're switching off your targeting computer?
TXC2: this guy is gonna be deader them the Dad in any Disney movie
Didero: Oh right, I forgot about the weird growling coming from that pit
EkstraLangeDruer: Do you have the Benny Hill theme on your soundboard, Ben?
Psychic_Ketchup: No dancing on the roof
Sibwow: did you try fatrolling
dukeofbread: the flip is my favorite opening
v0ltvizenti: he looks like bigfoot
Tom_Bruise: I think it's just because this dad is very, very large
thraximore: I think it's because you press the left thumbstick down
dukeofbread: or pressing analog stick
thraximore: I do that when I'm trying to put in inputs
Didero: Dad big makes you feel small?
thraximore: and I'm desperately slamming buttons
dukeofbread: sometimes you can get staggered too if you take damage
dukeofbread: different from posture break
thraximore: Oh, flinching? That happens when you get hit
thraximore: Sorry I'm multitasking while watching
dukeofbread: LUL
thraximore: Shadows Mikiri Twice
dukeofbread: kitty!
BrowneePoints: I believe in you! Dad beat the ever loving crap out of me when I first played this too
saucemaster5000: prequel to sekiro would be about owl as an immaculately conceived kid who's into codracing
Didero: I think his braid might be a more dangerous weapon than his sword
dukeofbread: Would love a Sekiro sequel, also can't wait for Elden Ring
MrOrderlyChaos: This fight was such fun to learn
Coloneljesus: his braid is against the geneva convention
thraximore: I've played this game quite a few times and this Father Fight still takes me a couple of tries on average
dukeofbread: it's not 100%, but it's possible to bait the flip attack by staying at mid range
ContingentCat: !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.
malc: !frontseat
Coloneljesus: !shotgun
Didero: !sidecar
andysoo89: !sideseat
thraximore: Go left
Splash4Mirrodin: !caboose
beowuuf: ben will use the phrase "hey chat..." if he wants advice :)
andysoo89: if you say so @thraximore
Dr_fragenstien: kill the old man, he drops a sweet katana Kappa
TXC2: it's not fair to tease lrrbot like that chat
Traion: Please dead no need to use a charm. Ben knows the PVP code, no heal estus, 1-2 blue are cool
beowuuf: !advice
LRRbot: Try uncrashing it.
thraximore: get GAMER'D
thraximore: Can you goomba stomp him when he smoke bombs + sweeps?
Didero: @thraximore I think you need a plumber degree for that
thraximore: I've never tried it but watching this makes me want to attempt it
thraximore: @thraximore pft
beowuuf: @thraximore and a last name the same as your first name :p
Coloneljesus: his first name is Super
dukeofbread: we got this
TXC2: Super Mario Mario?
beowuuf: get rekt dad
Coloneljesus: Super Mario
Didero: Woo!!
TXC2: lrrHORN lrrGOAT lrrHORN
Traion: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Psychic_Ketchup: Yeah!
Coloneljesus: dad? more like dEad
beowuuf: lrrHORN lrrGOAT lrrHORN
BusTed: lrrHORN
Didero: You're always so hard on yourself, Ben
ContingentCat: FBtouchdown get wrecked dad
dukeofbread: Shadows get mikiri'd twice
thraximore: "Great" Shinobi here meaning "Big"
Psychic_Ketchup: Mmm stinky stick
Traion: That is why they patched in the reflection fights^^
thraximore: @Didero he's the one who stole it.
NightValien28: good thing there's new game plus eh
TXC2: great meaning large or immense
Didero: Imagine resting and Dad is just standing there again
BrowneePoints: Nah you did great
Didero: @Didero That's not very nice of him
ZealousCrow: I literally let Bell Gargoyles kill me in DS1 if I don't feel like I fought a pretty enough fight.
thraximore: You did great sweaty umbraSmile
beowuuf: what's the time, master wolf?
Traion: No victory booze for Emma?
Coloneljesus: oh she will pour up
Didero: Is it now a spoiler to ask what happens if you picked the first option in the talk with Dad?
Didero: Wait, I guess I can just google that, never mind
Traion: I get the feeling Owl wasn't the most loving Foster father
thraximore: Emma goes hard on the "tea", she'd Sake chat's ass under the table
Coloneljesus: she will sake that booty
Didero: "now take this to Emma" "Now take this to Kuro" "Now take this to Emma" "Now take this to Kuro"
silenceaux: A good wind down
Didero: Chill out by murdering some dudes
Traion: Who are we murdering?
Didero: who AREN'T we murdering
Coloneljesus: dadicide
BrowneePoints: The Purple one were Dad's. The Red one's aren't Dad's
TXC2: it's our Dad comrade Kappa
BrowneePoints: one's*
accountmadeforants: They don't know that. You should bring his head around to show them, like some kinda psychopath!
dukeofbread: everyone wants a piece of Sekiro, doesn't matter which side they're on
thraximore: @dukeofbread It bugs me that once you kick Genichiro's ass, Isshin's forces STILL try to kill you
Traion: You could Ben, but you forgot to cut off his head so they won't believe you without the evidence
Didero: IS it a guy?
thraximore: Like... we're on the same side homies
dukeofbread: even the chickens hate you
thraximore: umbral4Wut
thraximore: wut
shurtal: the macho man elbo drop!
thraximore: FromSoftware practices conscientious recycling :)
Traion: That spine? Wrecked
Coloneljesus: chiropractor man
dukeofbread: ogre dad
Didero: 1 > 0
beowuuf: brock just F5ing you all over the place
Didero: I think most creatures dislike being set on fire
BusTed: seabatHITBOX
dukeofbread: he planted you
ContingentCat: wow rude
TXC2: going for a last ride there
thraximore: Saw it, felt it
shurtal: Got HOOVERED
zarbit: he's SO FAST
Psychic_Ketchup: Hitboxes!?
dukeofbread: he planted a Sekiro sapling
Traion: Ben I don't think your Shinoni health insurance covers spinal surgery
beowuuf: looks like some sort of sidewalk slam
Coloneljesus: ben just loves hugs
TXC2: grab attacks are aleays the worst
ZealousCrow: This is just funny now
TXC2: *always
Didero: Triple A only says something about how much it cost to make, not anything about quality :p
Coloneljesus: HE DODGED IT
Coloneljesus: lesss gooo
dukeofbread: where are your magnet hands now
Didero: Good idea to open the door, it must smell horrible in here
Didero: We already talked about salt, time to bring some ASSALT
Coloneljesus: they don't get paid enough
Didero: wait that doesn't reallly work in text
Psychic_Ketchup: That salt conversation is really engaging okay
thraximore: They're under assault, but SNEAKY NINJA assault
Didero: I'll interior your ministry
Coloneljesus: wtf does that mean
dukeofbread: interior ministry?
Didero: Can you live with yourself if you don't unlock everything?
Didero: Well there's your answer
Didero: I'm the same :p
TXC2: 100% is way of life
mizzytastic: this battle would go very differently if Genichiro accepted the help of the immortal shinobi instead of pissing him off
Robot_Bones: can't eat up
Traion: Can't unlock everything in a single playthrough so I guess we'll be here for a long time. The horror!
Coloneljesus: but then there would be one less fight in the game
thraximore: @mizzytastic yeah I'm of the opinion that Genichiro is responsible for destroying Ashina by being a dickhead
dukeofbread: Genichiro and Sekiro aren't pals because differing views on Kuro
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!
Didero: Imagine letting a whole kingdom topple because you disagree about a kid
benjamin_wheeler: wouldn't be the first kingdom to fall over that
beowuuf: wb
Didero: Now I'm curious, which kingdoms fell over that?
BusTed: seabatClap
Didero: "We can't be arsed to animate this! What do we do?" "Have Sekiro close his eyes, of course!" "You're promoted!"
TXC2: Didero Japan had a civil war after the Emperor had a kid after he said his brother would take over after him
zarbit: probably to not show harming a child
beowuuf: @Didero or maybe the animator accidentally used black for every exquisitely animated pixel :p
Didero: @TXC2 That doesn't sound ideal
BusTed: Hah.
TXC2: Didero Civil wars often aren't :p
ZealousCrow: lmao
BrowneePoints: wooooow
ContingentCat: oh no the worst
Didero: Yeah, I can see how they didn't want to add a kid stabbing himself
beowuuf: understandable, but we can still be sassy :p
Coloneljesus: doesn't bloodborne have like dying fetuses??
Pengu92: Did we beat Owl? I left for a hot minute
Coloneljesus: ye
ContingentCat: yup
Traion: Not giving Wolf smell lines to indicate the incense was a mistake
Tom_Bruise: Just pop in right quick to fuck that scrub up
beowuuf: @Pengu92 we did :)
Sibwow: earthbound also had limited backpack space so i dont think we should invoke that as an example
EkstraLangeDruer: Ok Ben, what's the *weirdest* thing that could happen here?
ContingentCat: just taking the scenic route
Didero: Can't let that dude get complacent, yeah
Coloneljesus: we get dragon spire'd
TXC2: and it's not a fan fic Kappa
NUTSOFODEN: Sekiro is the princess, Ben. This is Wolf.
BrowneePoints: Yay Symbolism
Didero: Waste of a good palanquin
beowuuf: uuuuuh
Tom_Bruise: So this is God...
theblakdeth: who's ready for burning man?
TXC2: it's rope man
Coloneljesus: strawman argument joke here
Didero: Of course it's a giant sentient rope, what else
ZealousCrow: Yeah that might be the weirdest thing
Traion: Ben making the face everyone makes here
BusTed: What if we got to play as rope man.
beowuuf: sekiro and kuro are drift compatible, and pilot this knot jaeger, right?
NUTSOFODEN: if it just played anything Joe Hisaishi id be ok with that
Traion: Yes Sekiro 2! We pilot rope man like a mech!
accountmadeforants: You really tied the knot in a big way
EkstraLangeDruer: @beowuuf Thet's knot gonna work
Critterbot: Uhm, why is there a giant-ass strawman? :D
beowuuf: @beowuuf :p
thraximore: aw I missed the goofy cutscene
v0ltvizenti: Hey, you tied the knot!
ArkhamArchivist: puns got me at the end of my rope
Pengu92: The rope man is something that I haven't looked into and I'm in awe every time I see it
beowuuf: there are ... two bells of awakening. You won't believe what wakes up if you ring the other one!
saucemaster5000: this was about the point where the plot finally roped me in
Traion: This area you'll love Ben
Traion: Best area in the game
shurtal: feels like an insult to Guy Fieri
EkstraLangeDruer: Can't believe Kuro roped you into this
Didero: but why a rope man
TXC2: saucemaster5000 get out Kappa
Coloneljesus: oh i'm looking forward to this
Tom_Bruise: it'd only be worth calling this flavourful if this golem were made of butcher's twine
ContingentCat: why not rope man?
beowuuf: @Didero all the male models were busy
saucemaster5000: @TXC2 don't tie yourself in knots over it
Didero: I've never needed sentient rope to ring a bell
cheesecake_and_carrot_pie: play ds1
NUTSOFODEN: first the rope man, then the dogs salivate
TXC2: saucemaster5000 :D
theblakdeth: I pick up my spoon and yell SOOOOIEEE
Traion: Iirc it is a shinto thing
Coloneljesus: @Didero way more fun if they're sentient
ContingentCat: oh yeah those bells
thraximore: secret bloodborne lore?
TXC2: THREE LIVES?!
Didero: Might just be missing cultural context then, thenks
Didero: *thanks
Didero: Wait, is this the first enemy with 3 lives?
Traion: Genichiro had 3
NightValien28: TXC2 three monks in a trenchcoat Kappa
Didero: Also they're not a ghost anymore! Good for them!
TXC2: "missing the cultural context" = why I bounce off of anime :p
Coloneljesus: @Traion kinda but not "officially"
Traion: Ape had 4 but spread over two fights
TXC2: NightValien28 indeed
ContingentCat: welp
NightValien28: yeeet
teh_crash: the railings, they do nothing!
Coloneljesus: not if you jump over them
Traion: This fight rules btw. (I say that about every fight don't I)
NightValien28: OSHA, the S does not stand for shinobi
Didero: never mind, still a ghost
theblakdeth: this one was a toughie for me
Tom_Bruise: oh no, they know the multiform technique
james_missingtriggers: @LoadingReadyRun Hoggers my dude
Didero: @Traion I get the vague impression that you like this game :p
Traion: @didero lies and slander!
Didero: @Traion I stand corrected! :p
Coloneljesus: the leaves getting thrown up in the air is such a nice touch
beowuuf: !chat
LRRbot: Always listen to chat, Never listen to chat.
thraximore: yes
PaperDoopliss: Sure can!
EkstraLangeDruer: Yes
Pengu92: Yessir!
Didero: I'd say just try it and see what happens
Traion: @didero I'm on the internet everything sucks and I hate it :p
Didero: @Traion I hate your attitude! :p
theblakdeth: good first try
Didero: I know a place where you can easily grind confetti Kappa
Traion: This arena is also gorgeous
Coloneljesus: yup
theblakdeth: my problem with this boss was parrying way too early. he's so much slower than I was used to
Coloneljesus: she* I'm pretty sure
Traion: This boss feels just a tad "off" which is fitting for us being on the edge of the Divine realm
TXC2: it was good until it wasn't
mizzytastic: sekiro has better big lady than re8
Traion: It doesn't
thraximore: it makes you deal more damage to all enemies
theblakdeth: I never tried personally
NightValien28: does not
Coloneljesus: DS1 has best big lady
Coloneljesus: Gwynevere
Traion: I mean just look at the red and orange petals popping against the white snow. I could look at this bridge all day
Tom_Bruise: oh please, she isn't even real
mizzytastic: divine confetti does bonus damage to all enemies, but this boss doesn't get the extra bonus damage against apparitions
iridium_alchemist: Does the confetti not do more in phase 3? I thought it did?
Coloneljesus: oh and the others are??
sir_slothing: divine does have a small damage boost against all but it does even more to certain but this is not one of them
Tom_Bruise: Yes.
TXC2: Coloneljesus her Brother for one
erased_citizen subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 58 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, erased_citizen! (Today's storm count: 8)
Coloneljesus: I see. I've been misinformed. her brother is best twink
theblakdeth: I don't think that means what you thin k it means
Coloneljesus: in ghost phase, you should try pyromancy
Tom_Bruise: this does seem like how you're supposed to avoid that attack, yes
Didero: Buy more pellets first?
BrowneePoints: Yea she has a naginata and wields it accordingly
ZealousCrow: Yeah I don't think it's cheesy to just gtfo when they spawn on top of you otherwise
Traion: Have you tried explaining how she is violating core tenets of Shintoism here? Maybe she'll concede fro shame?
Traion: *from
Coloneljesus: pretty sure I just dodged them? don't remember that phase giving me more trouble than the rest
BrowneePoints: She's such a cool enemy
Didero: More Ghosts Than Expected
Pengu92: That slide was cinematic AF
EkstraLangeDruer: Time for stage3!
Didero: Earthworm Jim, is that you?
sir_slothing: bug time!!!
Pengu92: Oh god, she's got bugs!
NightValien28: same
Coloneljesus: a worm came out of your kneck?
Didero: I assume Elden Ring is FromSoft's next game?
Coloneljesus: ye
TXC2: Didero it is indeed
EkstraLangeDruer: @Coloneljesus it's a centipede!
v0ltvizenti: no, that's elden ring on release date
Coloneljesus: been announced for like 3 years
Traion: Yes @didero coming out in January
Didero: Elden Ring PiF when? Kappa
teh_crash: @Coloneljesus standard human reaction to being excited
Traion: In January @didero ;)
Coloneljesus: good fight
Didero: @Traion The rare New Day Tueday / Play It Forward combination! :p
Traion: There might be a tarp involved in deciding who gets to PiF Elden Ring :p
Didero: Belive in us who belive in you who believes in us who believe in you!
Coloneljesus: a tarp?
thraximore: ooooooohhhhhhhhhh
thraximore: Eldern RING
Robot_Bones: I will be Adam, Alex, and Ben all playing Elden Ring at the same time
theblakdeth: Elden Ring Fit crossover coming?
Coloneljesus: oh boy
TXC2: Robot_Bones And Cameron
Traion: @coloneljesus a tarp, a knife in the middle, whoever is left standing streams the game. It is a LRR injoke
Coloneljesus: bye
thraximore: HAHA
thraximore: baby you're a FIREWORK
thraximore: dayum
Coloneljesus: NPCs do be rotting doe
Traion: Ben just started a pandemic there
TXC2: Traion oooh lets not make that joke please
thraximore: the incessant coughing must cease.
Traion: Fair sorry @txc2 wasn't meant to be a joke about that
Coloneljesus: this is a mulligan, right?
Traion: Mulder is catlike in her stealth
TXC2: is Mulder chroma key green?
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time to open some mail. That's right, it's Mail Time! | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-qq2IXjQXs || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1439674604214124549
EkstraLangeDruer: It's fascinating how Ben pretty much had Owl figured out from the start but is struggling so much with timings now
Coloneljesus: oh nice
Traion: I found her easier than Owl, which took me way longer than Ben. Interesting how different people struggle with different bosses
Coloneljesus: @EkstraLangeDruer what he sais is true tho. the timings in this fight are weird
TXC2: well mail time will be fun to watch in 12 hours :p
Didero: It's pretty late for this question, but what does "I should Dark Souls it" mean?
Coloneljesus: dodge instead of parry I think
TXC2: Didero I assume "get gud"
Didero: Thanks for explaining!
EkstraLangeDruer: @Coloneljesus I agree! But I found Owl significantly harder because he is so much faster
Tom_Bruise: ok so the monk with a centipede for a face doesn't care about fire
Traion: She has bigger issues than fire @tom_bruise LUL
Didero: I really appreciate these detailed and insightful answers, thanks Ben!
Coloneljesus: centipede out of her face for one thing
Tom_Bruise: @Traion Right, the whole centipede-for-a-face thing
ZealousCrow: If you dodge over their attack you can advance and attack at the same time though. Gotta take advantage of those sweeps more often probably.
zarbit: (hoping this doesn't come across as backseating) I am very much hoping to see a mikiri counter this fight
Coloneljesus: he did one last attempt
EkstraLangeDruer: It just occoured to me that this is the Dancer of the Boreal Valley of this game
zarbit: I walk away for 5 minutes!
zarbit: Gah
Coloneljesus: less booty
Didero: The only tool you need is us! Wait...
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
thraximore: @EkstraLangeDruer I can see what you mean. It's fun to try and draw parallels throughout the series
TXC2: what kind of tool is chat? I'm thinking claw hammer
thraximore: @TXC2 Does chat even know how to claw? More of a mallet, really
Coloneljesus: screwdriver that strips every screw
JTElroy: I’m so terrible at this game, but it’s a ton of fun to watch someone who doesn’t suck play it!
Traion: Stepladder @txc2 we always scream for people to step on us Kappa
Coloneljesus: jfc
iridium_alchemist: hammer drill comes to my mind
thraximore: it's the looooooooooong pull on those attacks that makes parrying them hard
Didero: @JTElroy Yeah, that's also why I enjoy these streams. I'd be both bad and frustrated if I played, I think. And watching people be good at videogames is fun!
JTElroy: @didero and the nice vibes in chat don’t hurt either hehehe
Didero: LRR does have lovely fans, yeah!
Tom_Bruise: the desire to turn and tell people to watch this is often too strong to resist
Coloneljesus: 1 million subs when?
capnkyle96: planked to death
thraximore: oh NO
Pengu92: Wow
Didero: I think that move is the whole reason those branches are even there
Coloneljesus: he sekiro'd when he should have dark soulsed
TXC2: Coloneljesus we're still working on 100K followers :p
Tom_Bruise: when you die and fall into an abyss you die in real life
AlucardMarkov: How did that just happen?
thraximore: planked unto death
JTElroy: I used to watch LRR a fair bit like four years ago before I lived in China, but now that I’m back stateside I’m trying to get back into streaming communities
Traion: Ben has yet to figure out one thing in phase 2 but he got this
Coloneljesus: @TXC2 not on YT
AlucardMarkov: This game looks like a fun challenging game to play though
TXC2: Coloneljesus ah, I meant on twitch
Didero: I mean, that's the same thing as saying everybody can play musical instruments. You still need the motivation and the drive to persist even through the hard parts, and you need to know HOW to learn
Coloneljesus: it becomes a rythm game
teh_crash: i started gaming in late 90ies and to this day i have 0 intent of playing a souls game
JTElroy: @alucardmarkov it’s a ton of fun but can also be brutal. I never got very far honestly
Didero: It's not so much losing money as it is investing money into victory
Traion: @alucardmarkov it is a great game
Coloneljesus: @teh_crash I'd say try it but I'm sure you've heard that before a thousand times :)
JTElroy: I sank a lot more time into bloodborne personally
zarbit: Sekiro is one of the few games where I would wipe my memory if I could to experience it new again
Tom_Bruise: it's like learning an instrument, except the instrument actually wants you to learn
zarbit: Such an experience
Didero: It seems fun to be good at Souls games, but I'm not sure I want to put in the effort to get good, if that makes sense
Coloneljesus: getting better is the most fun and rewarding thing tho
zarbit: you love to see it, glad to hear it
Didero: @Tom_Bruise There's a lot of free lessons for musical instruments on the internet though
AlucardMarkov: it kind of gives a good look into game design where you need to recognize patterns and movements
teh_crash: @Coloneljesus yeah, heard it before and watched enough streams of them to know it's not for me
JTElroy: I think when my computer makes it stateside I’ll probably try and make it through sekiro again
Tom_Bruise: @Didero sure, but it's not as if a bass guitar has a will of its own saying "no, put your thumb up *here*"
JTElroy: It’s like my white whale
Didero: That's my point about knowing HOW to learn. Watching these streams has shown me that I don't try to 'read' video game fights enough
Didero: @Tom_Bruise Yeah, I guess you need a teacher for that
JTElroy: WOOOOO
Tom_Bruise: whereas these games, sticking to the music analogy, are both instrument and instructor
JTElroy: cheerwhal100
TXC2: he's soulsing at an accelerated rate !
NUTSOFODEN: this centipede man screams like a record scratch
Didero: You know what Dark Souls fans always say: git gourd Kappa
Pengu92: The amount of gaming is off the charts!
Coloneljesus: good...
Traion: Mulder, Daddy is gaming right now
TXC2: lrrHORN lrrGOAT lrrHORN
Coloneljesus: phase 4?
Didero: WOOO!
Traion: Well done Ben
thraximore: seabatClap
Coloneljesus: ;)
BrowneePoints: There IS a conversation to be had about the lack of accessibility of Soulslikes for those with motor difficulties, but this is not really the time or place
gkgaming5: bug monk!
Pengu92: wheelerY wheelerE wheelerE wheelerH
BusTed: gottem
Robot_Bones: the scientist said no man could game this hard but look at Ben now
Coloneljesus: he really did game just now
JTElroy: VICTORY
Dragonfirewiz: Mulder from xfiles?
Traion: Now you can buy confetti btw
JTElroy: gamed so hard
teh_crash: CAT
BrowneePoints: Notice, the monk with Corruption was not allowed past the gates
Didero: Dragon's Tally Board? Should we have been counting dragons all along?
Dragonfirewiz: good job killing that boss
JTElroy: Well done!
Traion: Gorgeous right?
Didero: Look at all the places where we can dive!
Coloneljesus: you're in the divine realm now!
Pengu92: Beautiful view
Traion: This area is so beautiful
Traion: homebase
Tom_Bruise: So this is where they built the Undead Asylum...
JTElroy: Okay yeah I need to force myself to play this game
Coloneljesus: C O N F E T T
TXC2: Vistas, if there's one thing From Soft can do right, it's vistas
BrowneePoints: Also Wheeler, if you're loving this, definitely check out the Black Myth: Wukong tech trailer
EkstraLangeDruer: The dragon's tally board you got upgrades vendors
Coloneljesus: Irithyl still best :)
thraximore: I found out it lets you buy confetti from vendors
thraximore: imagine my surprise
NUTSOFODEN: is this the Minamo you've always wanted?
JTElroy: @browneepoints I sincerely hope black myth wukong ends up being a real game
Traion: The homebase vendor only I think
Mahtamori: Several vendors had confetti and a few items added to their inventories
thraximore: I know the one at the temple lets you buy it now
Didero: Maybe the description of the item you got for the bossfight explains things?
thraximore: At the very least
EkstraLangeDruer: Reading descriptions? heresy
BrowneePoints: but yea Black Myth Wukong is a Chinese soulslike being made, and they just released an Unreal 5 trailer and it looks SO good
Didero: Sorry if that came across as condescending
thraximore: friend? :)
Traion: The vendor at the temple is the confetti vendor
Didero: Sorry for apologizing Kappa
Coloneljesus: too canadian
accountmadeforants: I'm so sorry for chat apologizing so much
Coloneljesus: soundtrack change?
thraximore: Time in this game changes the way it does in Bloodborne
mitomanox: 3 wheelers in a row <3
