beowuuf: look, I'm not saying Sekiro is better than Leonidas, I'm just saying Sekiro made a god bleed without dying, *and* managed to get in to position without 299 other people helping him.
beowuuf: Also sergeHi
NightValien28: leonidas was a chump
beowuuf: maybe it's the lack of katana, who can really say until Zack Snyder's "300 Samuri" comes out in 2025
benjamin_wheeler: if Leonidas was so great how come he wasn't named Luponidas?
beowuuf: apparently seo. I just googled in bing and put Luponidas and Leonidas came up.
TXC2: Hello Everybody

TXC2: Sekiro boy the pipes are calling
benjamin_wheeler: Chat I made a big dookie
benjamin_wheeler: that didn't clear any bosses/cutscenes
benjamin_wheeler: but uh, long story short, I've basically fucked up by running around and aimlessly slashing twice
beowuuf: oh no
NightValien28: who did you hurt
benjamin_wheeler: (its not actually that bad, but I did have to use the internet to confirm that)
Didero: All right, got my pizza, I'm ready for some shinobi shenanigans. Good evening!
Didero: What happened?
TXC2: hello Didero welcome
beowuuf: sergeHi didero. nothing happened lrrFINE
benjamin_wheeler: @NightValien28 oh that's the worst part, I didn't even swing my sword at anyone
BusTed: Hey all.
beowuuf: killed the invisible swordsman? :(
TXC2: hello BusTed welcome
benjamin_wheeler: but I did spoil a secret hidden boss for me
NightValien28: gonna be honest wheeler, thought that would happen a lot earlier on the playthrough, kudos for lasting this long
benjamin_wheeler: so I guess its a good thing?
thraximore: Somehow I'm even more nervous now
thraximore: How do you mess that up without hitting anyone
TXC2: lets find out
beowuuf: saves chat doing it and someone needing to go to a farm upstate
benjamin_wheeler: @NightValien28 I avoided playing this game and consuming any/all media involving it for a year after purchase, so what's another month or two
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Wheeler is down to his last two episodes of Play it Forward! Join him over at while he continues his playthrough of Sekiro! ||
benjamin_wheeler: @thraximore panic resting at an idol that isn't actually an idol
beowuuf: is this some code stuff that once you draw your blade it must not get resheathed until it's drawn blood?
NightValien28: I am proud of you
benjamin_wheeler: I hit alt F4 so fast but it was too late :(
Didero: Is one of the idols a mimic? :O
thraximore: ahhhhhhhhh
thraximore: I think I know now
benjamin_wheeler: it didn't fuck anything up, just makes it less pretty (or easier on obs)
thraximore: @Didero Not exactly
TXC2: here we GO!
beowuuf: i can't wait to hear about this :p
Pantsravaganza: lrrSIG lrrSIG
TXC2: Hello Wheeler
beowuuf: morning ben, and oh no!
ContingentCat: Morning Wheeler
joerybeer: Good morning to you!
thraximore: Kreygasm grip it and RIP IT baby
Pantsravaganza: lrrJUDGE
TXC2: La Croix: that was bad
Didero: :(
TXC2: a 2 part finale, just like the star treks
beowuuf: it's been delightful
thraximore: The best part about Sekiro is that you get to play it forever, there's a billion endings
Didero: Just continue playing it on your homestream Kappa
beowuuf: @TXC2 i'll get the "best of both worlds" dramatic cliffhanger music set up
garunkl: Hello everyone
TXC2: hello garunkl welcome

Mysticman89: You beverage lifestyle resonates strongly with me
Didero: I don't think I knew that carbonated water came in cans

ElfLawyer: hidey ho Benjamin & chat
TXC2: and remember: "hey chat" is not "yes, and?"
bwk789: @beowuuf maybe folks are waiting for the FamJam to re-up
beowuuf: wait until "hey chat" if you don't want us to be "chat! hey!"
TXC2: hello ElfLawyer welcome

Vyous: Some of the whistles are pretty fun.
beowuuf: @bwk789 luckily most people, like maybe wheeler, have twitch vods, but only lrr with graham will be on youtube. Sorry!
novrdd: heello ben, hello chat, hope everyone well and happy PridePenguin
bwk789: @beowuuf i thought it was today because i looked in for FNPF, saw the FJ tweet but assumed it was today instead. Vod time for me then :(
TXC2: hello novrdd welcome
novrdd: @txc2 PridePenguin
thraximore: I was right!
Traion: Oh you found the secret optional boss
beowuuf: @bwk789 yeah, famjam started at this time yesterday, so by fnpf time it was done. But yeah, i think everyone but kathleen kept the vods (wheeler has his) so at least there's that!
thraximore: @Traion the secret Dark Souls boss :D
Didero: We forgive you, Ben :p
Traion: We are beating this game this weekend for sure
TXC2: "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but some day." "later that day we beat the game"
novrdd: #speed_running sekiro
Tom_Bruise: Aaand we're back
beowuuf: @Didero surely we should pretend not to forgive him for narrative tension now, then forgive him tomorrow? :p
ContingentCat: !advice

Mattmitchell45: The Cardinal Sin? - Did you meet someone in St Louis?
beowuuf: Lord "It's hard to be humble"
Didero: Wait, maybe I'm slow, but didn't we leave off last week in that water area with the koi and stuff?
TXC2: Didero Wheeler probably did some grinding between then perhaps
novrdd: ouch
ElfLawyer: large swords? In a Japanese game? perish the thought
novrdd: ouch no.2
Tom_Bruise: Next you're gonna tell me this piece of modern Japanese media contains anti-war sentiments
thraximore: That's POSTURE, baby
beowuuf: playing by D&D hp rules :p
thraximore: you just gotta BELIEVE
beowuuf: please people at least wait until wheeler has had his pill, show some respect
ElfLawyer: "I'm not good enough to do this" *does it flawlessly*
ZackTheCatKing: Wheeler how did Fam Jam go yesterday? I was at draft at LGS
TXC2: where clanger?
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Send your sinuses to Arizona.
beowuuf: @ElfLawyer it's only flawless to us mere chatter's, an expert like ben can see the flaws and knows he could have done it better :p
Didero: Oh no, he's trying pyromancy
novrdd: daddy incoming SabaPing
CaptainSpam: At long last, haven't the shadows died enough times already?
Mahtamori: If you stand next to the clanger long enough, they WILL stab you. There's even a special deathblow animation for countering them

I think I've got it now." —Cameron [2016-04-13]
TXC2: "well you might as well JUMP!"
Tom_Bruise: you jumped because you like Dark Souls-ing these guys, you just said
beowuuf: it's not cowardice, it's forward tactical thinking
TXC2: I think it was the fire arrows?
beowuuf: bees are in short cupply this season
TXC2: this guy is 10000% trying to have a pee
Tom_Bruise: I think he's cutting off a potential escape route. Otherwise I have no clue what that guy'd be doing there
Haroldholmes25: big brain enemy standing in the corner so they can't be backstabbed
beowuuf: oh now he's mr stompy grumpypants
TXC2: camera pls
beowuuf: camera plz
ContingentCat: wow wheeler buy him a drink first before that
beowuuf: wait your turn!
Didero: That guy didn't get set on fire?!
beowuuf: we understand the unspoken "for you" that goes with those statements :p
Didero: That wasn't running away, that was scouting
beowuuf: didn't see it didn't happen
CaptainSpam: It was a temporary fire outage.
TXC2: Gods what aren't we out of these days? :p
beowuuf: look, we need to get rid of this fire in our warehouse
Tom_Bruise: your vision cones are supposed to be supersmall, how did you see me?!
beowuuf: @TXC2 excuses?
Didero: pallets of pellets
TXC2: beowuuf ha, very droll
Mysticman89: are you the bad guy here or
beowuuf: abandon is such a strong word....
Tom_Bruise: you mean the senile old lady?
Didero: Don't worry, she probably just died of old age
thraximore: Wrong spot
Didero: That dude brought a rocket launcher to a sword fight
beowuuf: people always burst in to flames screaming about your betrayal when they die of old age, happens all the time
Didero: and still lost, apparently
ContingentCat: it's ok she went to a nice farm upstate
Tom_Bruise: turns out he's not firing that thing close-range, but not for *that* reason
Jackomaning: Wolf is honestly one of the most unambiguously heroic FromSoft protagonists I think
thraximore: @beowuuf wow I've killed a lot of people of old age then LUL
beowuuf: @ContingentCat the farm is also on fire
dumpsterfire: stunt double
beowuuf: @beowuuf ... in games, right?
thraximore: @beowuuf ... yes
beowuuf: :D
Didero: worst game ever
beowuuf: ok, so how about a story mode in games where you get to summon your stunt double to fight for you? :p
TXC2: a Game where Jackie chan is the strongest man in the world
BrowneePoints: Looks more like a Neslowie
Didero: oh no you made the mushrooms angry
beowuuf: mushroom - strongest foe
ContingentCat: the tomato pincushions were tired of getting stabbed
Didero: The sun was in your eyes, the wind suddenly picked up
beowuuf: yup, just nothing you can do.
Carlioo: if there's one thing I've learned about souls-likes, it's that mushrooms are the strongest
thraximore: well that's good because the merchant is dead anyway :)
goombalax: I heard some shit about shadows dying more than twice, whats that about
beowuuf: you heard about a firesale and wondered if you had time to beat the rush
beowuuf: the bird or the coin?
Tom_Bruise: In important news; I've used Science! to determine when it's no longer OK to use the "new controller" excuse
thraximore: they DID
Tom_Bruise: conveniently, Ben isn't gonna reach that point until tomorrow after the 2nd ad break
Didero: but can you parry the rockets
anarchomaxy: When is the serge vs Wheeler CanLander event? Or did it already happen?
beowuuf: @anarchomaxy next friday, 1st October
anarchomaxy: @beowuuf thanks!
beowuuf: np
thraximore: ???
thraximore: lrrWOW
Didero: That was 100% the game's fault
varazeal: The abyss beckons
CaptainSpam: All a part of your clever plan to confuse the archer!
beowuuf: speaking of 1st of october, i hope rob scallon and andrew haung get to make another album...
PixelArtDragon: Hang on, these archer towers aren't OSHA compliant!
thraximore: Looking forward to that for sure
Carlioo: how long has this mansion been burning for anyway
thraximore: Jumping: wheeler's greatest weakness
TXC2: is anything truly OSHA compliant?
PixelArtDragon: This is getting out of hand. Now there are two of them!
Didero: If they manage to kill you, they're by definition not trash mobs
TXC2: "where the fuck am I?" a question I ask myself every morning
beowuuf: i think things once they;ve finished burning to the ground? clearly this is just an area getting made osha compliant
beowuuf: jumping fire, wheeler's second weakness
thraximore: no?
PixelArtDragon: @TXC2 And you might ask yourself "How did I get here?"
ContingentCat: You'd think you'd notice something like that
beowuuf: sekiro has firecrackers, the enemy have crackers. and fire.
beowuuf: lrrWOW
beowuuf: i mean when you use the word humane, then it's hard to argue
awful_neutral subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 42 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, awful_neutral! (Today's storm count: 2)
Tom_Bruise: it's not like they're gonna try and find the person responsible to quench a thirst for vengeance
beowuuf: no, i said 'jk' after i did it, so you cna't get mad
Didero: "Why didn't that explosion hurt him?" "Well, he WAS in the middle of stabbing somebody"
TXC2: beowuuf pretty sure that doesn't hold up in court Kappa
thraximore: NOW it's a party
Didero: DIdn't you kill him twice?
Tom_Bruise: that depends entirely on how much money the defendant has
beowuuf: @TXC2 funnily enough, not about to try killing the family of an enemy lord in order to test it out. and see :p
TXC2: wise
thraximore: go left
nightsreach: can't you makiri counter that?
Mysticman89: sekiro is the game where everyone is the pontiff
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise "your honour, the defendant said jk at the time, has said he's really sorry that the remaining family thinks something bad "happened, and has $1billion dollars. I'm not really sure what more you need."
Didero: You'll never get me at the bottom of this ravine!
CaptainSpam: You're right, they never will get you there!
Wolfstrike_NL: They will indeeed never get you there
SeiichiSin: I thought you already lost that long ago?
Tom_Bruise: have you checked for your lost mind under your second pill?
ContingentCat: it's 2021 you're in good company
TXC2: Tom_Bruise 2nd pill is for closers Kappa
beowuuf: these idiots are messing with a wheeler at full strength? good luck!
Tom_Bruise: well there's your problem; you took your second pill before you closed a deal today
beowuuf: second sword < second pill
thraximore: He's your counter
Jackomaning: he's an elite mob sorta guy
beowuuf: huh
beowuuf: that's a thing
Tom_Bruise: oh that looks like fun
Didero: Nothing that happens in this game seems good :p
thraximore: and now we get the BEST dark souls boss in this sekiro game
Tom_Bruise: it's a thing to fight, so I guess you're supposed to be here
TXC2: !findquote good
LRRbot: Quote #398: "If there's one thing Portal is good for, it's adding quotes to the quote database." —Paul [2015-07-01]
beowuuf: yup, that is definitely a dark souls boss as advertised
BrowneePoints: So does this demon look familiar Ben?
beowuuf: if it was making a godaweful racket it would be a bloodbourne boss
Tom_Bruise: and like most Dark Souls bosses, it appears it has a blind spot for beneath its grundle
Didero: No 'hey chat' is no good answer, them's the rules :p
beowuuf: three phases?
CaptainSpam: Can't the demon just learn to enjoy its job? Most demons seem to like rampant destruction like this.
CaptainSpam: So much hatred.
Tom_Bruise: wait a second... is this the old Shouty Horse Man's arena?
beowuuf: it should be a demon *off* hatred
TXC2: Tom_Bruise yeap
Tom_Bruise: so this is Shouty Horse Man back with a vengeance. I'm headcanonning this
beowuuf: emoting that much summoned a demon?
Didero: I mean, first attempt is always a mulligan, right?
NightValien28: good luck wheeler LUL
NightValien28: hey wheeler look, the demon is using pyromancy, seems effecting against you LUL
Didero: I only just noticed he has three lives instead of two
thraximore: @Didero he's not a Shadow, that's for sure
PixelArtDragon: @Didero Demons die thrice?
TXC2: !findquote feels
LRRbot: Quote #6654: "I feel like I gained at least two levels in 2019." —Kathleen [2019-12-26]
Didero: @Didero Apparently!
beowuuf: heroes die once, shadows twice, demons thrice, cowards 1000 times
Didero: Man, I'm gonna miss these streams
thraximore: They're storytelling mobs
beowuuf: wear less armour :p
thraximore: Your instinct is correct, but you need to adapt to how this combat system makes you approach it
thraximore: Or you could just go left
thraximore: I'm not confident about pyromancy here tbh
Didero: I get the feeling that trying pyromancy won't help too much :p
Tom_Bruise: quick, cast field of the dead for more mobs
Traion: Had to step out for a bit, how many attempts have we had?
beowuuf: clearly a red permanent, use hydroblast
thraximore: @Tom_Bruise just Ephemerate your Golos, my frood
beowuuf: @Traion this is only the second
Didero: Believe in us who believe in you, Wheeler!
Carlioo: I come back and see you switched to playing bloodborne?
Traion: This boss was clearly left over from the Izalith design doc Kappa
beowuuf: @Carlioo dark souls, boss isn't shrieking like a nightmare enough to be bloodborne :p
Carlioo: @Carlioo it kinda looks like bloodstarved beast!
ElfLawyer: there's fire everywhere, has to be Dark Souls
Traion: He juked you, Boss is a genius
beowuuf: @Carlioo oh yeah, but isn't screaming like bloodstarved beast :p
Tom_Bruise: That demon just took on a battle stance, we're sooo fucked
iridium_alchemist: Hey, if you keep this pace, you will have him down in 4 tries!
beowuuf: look, we just need to use five confettis, harsh language, and positive thinking
Tom_Bruise: !quote R1
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.

ContingentCat: !fidnquote R1
Traion: I think unrelenting aggression is what turned our friend into this thing
Tom_Bruise: well that's just good ol' fashioned greed
Didero: As a wise person once set, victory is inevitable
Didero: *said
thraximore: "wise" "person"
beowuuf: maybe offstream ben had the right idea with running away? :p
Didero: Hey, don't diss Cameron Kappa
Traion: That person was Wheeler five minutes ago and calling him wise is slander @didero Kappa
TXC2: more?
Tom_Bruise: @beowuuf no backing down, love conquers all hate
thraximore: Only so much as it hurts every enemy
Traion: Not more than on a normal enemy
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise if you love something, set it free?
Tom_Bruise: Yea we'll set it free alright
Tom_Bruise: free from this mortal coil
Didero: I think victory being inevitable relies a lot on your persistence and your ability to read enemy attacks
iridium_alchemist: you at least get the moral support of having a pretty sword.
thraximore: hehe
beowuuf: the more important questions is, will everything stop being on so much fire once we kill this boss?
Didero: 'Victory is inevitable' is a more catchy and empowering way to say 'practice makes perfect'
Traion: This is a Dark Souls boss not a Bloodborne boss, no viscerals in Dark Souls :p
Didero: And I don't mean that negatively
beowuuf: if we play the game enough something might glitch on the hard drive and we 'win' by the game no longer working.
Didero: That wasn't a camera shot I needed :p
Tom_Bruise: oh no, it's going Swole Super Saiyan
beowuuf: oi, now it's making noise, but aftre that katana crotch shot i don't blame it
Didero: I bet this guy organizes incredible barbecues
thraximore: Oh yeah that was brutal
Traion: So Ben can you do me a favour? I might not make it back from counting votes on time so if tomorrow you'd dick around for the first hour before going to the final boss that would be great Kappa
Didero: Have you really fought the hatred if you've absorbed it instead?
beowuuf: fight fire with fire, metaphoricallu
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!

beowuuf: wb
beowuuf: we were *all* here *all the time*
beowuuf: (whistles)
Didero: I thought confetti only worked against ghosts?
asthanius: Only against undead
Traion: Not more than against any enemy
Didero: But confetti does increase your damage slightly against every enemy
dukeofbread: woohoo, we're fighting the orange Cleric beast
Didero: Which sugar did Ben use?
Tom_Bruise: have we considered switching to some fire-resistant gear?
Tom_Bruise: like, Alonne Knight armor
Didero: What, like an asbestos scarf?
Didero: We can always just grind for more confetti later Kappa
Didero: Is this a story boss, an optional boss, or is the answer a spoiler?
dukeofbread: I have a spoiler-free confession: I never fought this boss the proper way
Didero: It's a FromSoft game, can't you cheese every boss? Kappa
beowuuf: this is your destiny ben
Tom_Bruise: oh yea, of course! Just get them down to one knee, and them mash R1 until they fall off the arena
Didero: that's new
dukeofbread: there's cheese and then there's CHEESE
Didero: Ben Wheeler: The Lactose Intolerant Gamer
Didero: Cheese, not even once
beowuuf: use gourd not gouda
ACSherman: I love his little stance at the beginning
Banrael: Turkey bacon ranched.. Now I'm hungry.
Didero: I assume 'Dark Souls 2 targetting' isn't a good thing?
Banrael: If I could get cheese with that, even better.
dukeofbread: it means generous hitboxes
dukeofbread: and magnetic tracking
iridium_alchemist: it's a sweep
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Don't fail.
Didero: Is this what Bite Down is for?
CAKHost: Wasn't the PPR like 2 weeks ago? Why is there a flame werewolf here?
mizzytastic: you jump, even if it looks like you get hit you won't take damage
iridium_alchemist: for sweeps, jump. don't dodge.
mizzytastic: its a sweep
TXC2: ppr was last week
TXC2: wait
ContingentCat: what is time anyway?
PixelArtDragon: Wait a minute, is this a Dark Souls boss?
TXC2: ContingentCat indeed
mizzytastic: I think big arm demon is just a Miyazaki boss
Didero: hey sekiro, have you considered stabbing him in the face more than once?
kristian_fischer: It's impressive he doesn't set more things on fire with that arm.
TXC2: kristian_fischer there's a shocking amount of asbestos around here Kappa
TXC2: strats? sounds expensive
Didero: The unimaginible luxury of being able to buy confetti
beowuuf: fender strat?
Didero: Dragonrot?
Mahtamori: Fact that as a human you can survive a direct hit from those flames suggests they aren't able to make stuff it hits terribly hot
BrowneePoints: You should check on your buddy
Traion: Yashariku candy or coward Kappa
Didero: Seems like that second blast just makes you fall over, but it doesn't do any damage
TXC2: rule of threes
Tom_Bruise: except kings, those come in fours
dukeofbread: that's a lot of confetti to the nutsack
dukeofbread: the 4k hdr kings
TXC2: a stomp, a stamp and a stémp
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise king size is about 1 1/3 of normal size, so maths still checks out :p
dukeofbread: in any Fromsoft game, fear the barefoot boss
Tom_Bruise: you don't need room when you've studied the way of the serpentine
dukeofbread: no idea, says not edible lol
asthanius: Sparkling stones I think?
Traion: It leaves a pretty marker to find your way
Mattmitchell45: @dukeofbread I would also fear a beast in shoes
TXC2: does any one ever use those to find their way back?
Tom_Bruise: I would only fear beast in shoes if the shoes have spikes on the bottom
beowuuf: demon gets pissy when you remove two health bars
Tom_Bruise: cleats, and I'm not quite afraid yet
Traion: Btw did I mention that this boss likes fire?
asthanius: Real talk, I don't know if those have ever been useful outside of videos where someone modded one of the souls games and is showing something off
Traion: Also he looks really cool
dukeofbread: Well I used them in DS1 for the crystal cave
Tom_Bruise: oh the Crystal Cave...
Tom_Bruise: what fond memories
Traion: double damage as opposed to 1.5 damage from Ako
dukeofbread: in my opinion it's mostly for leet pros to show off
iridium_alchemist: half hp I think?
Didero: The strat is dying?
Traion: Yashariku is basically an RTR you can activate on purpose
beowuuf: @Didero step 2
Tom_Bruise: dying is in fact step 2. step 1 is living and step 3 is repeating. Ask Tom Cruise
TehAmelie: how goes the shadow murderin?
TXC2: step 4 ...... step 5 profit?
beowuuf: @TehAmelie we're getting dark souls bossed right now :p
asthanius: Correct
Vyous: Correct
Didero: Is that a 'hey chat' question?
TehAmelie: that boss does look pretty Kalameet
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise sergeJustRight
Traion: yup optional. This is what the Sculptor turned into after he finally gave in
dukeofbread: head banging
PixelArtDragon: If this was like Dark Souls you could try pyromancy
ContingentCat: !spoilers
1y1e: bruh
TXC2: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
Traion: Sorry, since it is never actually addressed I assumed the conclusion was fine
Didero: Your sword is stil a lightsaber, so I'd call that 'good stuff' :p
dukeofbread: I think he means the half hp stuff
Traion: No viscerals in Dark Souls Ben
TXC2: "to assume is to make an ass out of u and me"
Traion: Yes but this is a Dark Souls boss
dukeofbread: the grapple hook attack is pretty neat
TXC2: "hey chat" is active
ACSherman: I don't think *always* but pretty often, yeah
PixelArtDragon: You got this
iridium_alchemist: in phase 2, like 90% of the time yes I think
ACSherman: in the sense that when you have that much distance it's what he goes for
gian_ko: Not always. But is one of his long range attacks. Uses it only when you are far away
ACSherman: good revive timing
PixelArtDragon: That was BS
Didero: lrrJUDGE
gian_ko: Toe kill
beowuuf: seabatHITBOX
dukeofbread: The boss got an achievement for that
Didero: Though you keep getting further and further. Progress!
iridium_alchemist: yeah. that attack kinda just sucks all around.
iridium_alchemist: It does seem out of place in this game yes.
Didero: I thought doing a deathblow gave you another ressurrection, what does using the statue on top of that do?
ACSherman: statue recharges the lil circle
ACSherman: instead of having to grind deathblows on enemies
Traion: @didero it only gives you another res if you have a circle filled which you do by getting multiple deathblows. Statue fills the circle
Didero: Ah, ok, thanks
Tom_Bruise: yea lesson learned; just because the big fire hurts, doesn't mean the small fire stops hurting
Didero: I keep thinking I understand the resurrection recharge system, and I keep being wrong >_>
dukeofbread: we got this
TXC2: Didero I also have that problem but in real life :p
Tom_Bruise: clutch confetti for the win
Didero: @TXC2 Real life is easy, its resurrection system is just 'no' :p
Traion: @didero it is one of those things that is really complicated on paper, but instantly clicks when you play the game
MagicalAttackGecko: lol stepped on
beowuuf: "he's dead" has been called
Tom_Bruise: please demon please no steppy on poor shinobi-kun
Didero: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LoadingReadyLIVE (A Variety show, LoadingReadyRun Style!) at Sat 06:00 PM PDT (6:06 from now).
Didero: yeah, plenty of time
beowuuf: look, it's simple, we'll just kill it now then take our second break, no biggie
Didero: Step 1: Don't get hit. Step 2: Kill the boss
Tom_Bruise: let's go over step 1 again
gian_ko: Step 1: Failed
TXC2: sometimes you gotta step back to run forward
Didero: Ben, have you tried going left?
Tom_Bruise: Step 0; review where you went wrong on step 1 last time
dukeofbread: jump too soon maybe?
accountmadeforants: Step 1 is a team-effort between you and the boss, sometimes
Tom_Bruise: either that or safe the confetti for phase 3
Didero: Either make hitboxes work better or don't put in litle hills, yeah
accountmadeforants: This is why Gael fights exclusively on oblique angles
dukeofbread: you did jump

ACSherman: sekiro voice: Your razor sucks!
MilkInBags: Hello Benjamin
Traion: Hey Milk
MilkInBags: I see you reached the Dark Souls segment

ACSherman: like an orangutan of misery
Didero: Does the divine confetti even make that much of a difference?
dukeofbread: ooo clutch
accountmadeforants: The kanji just means "danger", I think? (Which functionally translates to "(don't) block this you filthy casual".) Don't remember if this boss only has jump-able dangerous attacks.
MilkInBags: Add Demon of Hatred to Smash, you cowards
Traion: 25% more damage but since we also have Ungo it is like 18-ish percent actual damage increase @didero
dukeofbread: yeah it literally says danger, but looks this boss doesn't grab or thrust so it's always something to jump
iridium_alchemist: I find it real funny how Sekiro has the same bored expression despite fighting this big ass demon.
Didero: why grab when you can stomp
Traion: @accountmadeforants clearly you Mikiri all the fire attacks Kappa
beowuuf: @iridium_alchemist after fighting a god dragon everything else is 'eh'
Didero: Pretend it's a focussed instead of a bored expression :p
accountmadeforants: @iridium_alchemist This is why you don't do botox, fellow shinobi
MilkInBags: good attempt Ben
gian_ko: I hate dodging when hi steps on you. At least for me is way easier to parry.

dukeofbread: LUL
Didero: there's a RAVINE?!
Traion: Virgil are you implying symbolism in a FromSoft game
SK__Ren: Can this boss be tricked/knocked off that same cliff?
Tom_Bruise: coming up next, Ben *not* getting Iron Golem'ed himself
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: 'become'? I thought you already were
accountmadeforants: You will become the Sekirokage, believe it!
Wolfstrike_NL: !advice
LRRbot: Listen to your body. Keep breathing.
Traion: So what are the odds Ben sits on this boss for today and most of tomorrow and then just first tries the actual final boss?
Pengu92: Hey chat, just coming in, what have I missed in the past two hours?
beowuuf: 85 - 92%
Traion: A lot of dying in fire to the Demon of Hatred @pengu92
Didero: @Pengu92 We're fighting Fire Lad
beowuuf: @Pengu92 ben playing with the demon of hatred because he doenst want the game to end Kappa
Pengu92: Amazing, love the demon (that is a lie, boss looks difficult)
Traion: Slander! Wheeler would only throw a fight if he was paid good honest cash to do so. @beowuuf
iridium_alchemist: Orangutan is kinda hard to grok as a boss 'cause the game suddenly goes, "hey, the way we have taught you how to play this game? throw it out and return to Dark Souls."
beowuuf: @Traion what if he paid himself to do it? *fivehead*
Didero: I'm still not entirely clear on the diffrence between a Sekiro boss and a Dark Souls boss
TXC2: and we're back
Pengu92: Welcome back Wheeler!
accountmadeforants: Most Sekiro bosses are on semi-even footing, Dark Souls bosses require you to spin around them and R1
Traion: @didero DS bosses are more about positioning and waiting for "your turn". Sekiro bosses are more about quick reactions and parries
Didero: Thanks for explaining!
Traion: Mulder is helping, we can't loose
beowuuf: adjusting playstyles on the fly
Didero: but have you TRIED parrying the fire?
Traion: You have to play Dark Souls without a dodge roll
MagicalAttackGecko: wheelerMuldcb wheelerMuldr
Tom_Bruise: you can't parry the fire until you upgrade the Shinobi Fire-Extinguisher tool
Didero: We're trying to defeat the concept of hatred here, Mulder!
beowuuf: @Didero that just sounds like a line out of the x-files :p
beowuuf: later seasons, obviously
Traion: What is a more powerful force than the love of a pet against hatred @didero
Didero: Never watched X-Files
Traion: There is a latent skill that gives you an extra 15 seconds of sugar time
Traion: DS2 tracking is Souls lingo for "hot bullshit" Kappa
Didero: @Traion That sounds vaguely lewd somehow
dukeofbread: smoked gouda cheese
beowuuf: @Traion agreed
Didero: Now I'm imagining a game where the actual enemies aren't too dangerous but the main difficulty is wranging the camera
dukeofbread: every From game has at last one camera boss
Traion: @didero that is Nier Automata on higher difficulties when they take your lock on away
iridium_alchemist: @Didero I mean. Wasn't that just every early 3D game?
Pengu92: I didn't know the confetti gave a buff for this boss, new thing for my playthrough
TXC2: Ichienosie? which boss is that? Kappa
dukeofbread: The ancient shinobi technique of ichinoz
Didero: @TXC2 Isn't that a French sauce?
Traion: @pengu92 confetti gives a 25% buff against everything. Extra against apparitions. Wheeler is just using it for the 25%
TXC2: Didero it may be, it's also an actual Japanese name :p
dukeofbread: blame Gyobu for this arena
TXC2: (that I no doubt misspelled)
Pengu92: @Traion That's good to know, I didn't know it had a use outside headless
Didero: I feel like a headbutt like that should also do damage to the boss
beowuuf: it's like the boss is driving an armoured spike in to its head each time
dukeofbread: don't give up skeleton
Tom_Bruise: Don't you get it, Demon of Hatred? Wheeler's not trapped in that fire circle with you, you're trapped in that fire circle with him!
Traion: @pengu92 Headless, Shimchen Warriors, Oren,and the Ghost Monk are what most people use confetti for and nothing else, it is just too expensive and annoying to reapply imo

TXC2: first try and all Kappa
Traion: That was well done
beowuuf: cheer80 clean bits
asthanius: Whistle
dukeofbread: cheese: you get him to run off the cliff
Tom_Bruise: there was a part of me that was expecting this boss fight to be the rest of the episode, like that time Cam spent an entire broadcast fighting Ludwig
Traion: There is a prosthetic upgrade for the finger whistle that stuns him (and Headless, and Schimchen) 3 times
asthanius: The finger whistle is like a gascoigne music box
ACSherman: Cheer100 Cheer100 Cheer100 Cheer100 Cheer100
Didero: oooh, he sells a gourd seed
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise cameron's little laugh and 'first try' after finally winning still makes me smile
SK__Ren: In Bloodborne there is a music box item you can find that stuns Gascoine in the boss fight if you use it. Thats all
objectivefailure: Granny ended these dudes.
Didero: so quiet, i'm scared
dukeofbread: did you already come here?
accountmadeforants: I think you jump and ledge hang?
Didero: Maybe from the center beam?
Traion: you did get up there
dukeofbread: then you already got the item I think
Traion: nope
Didero: Maybe to reactivate the idol? I don't know if there is one there though
dukeofbread: how many prayer beads did we find?
accountmadeforants: If you've already been there before, then no. Otherwise there's something nice there, yeah.
Didero: we could always grind for more confetti Kappa
MagicalAttackGecko: Fight the loud horse man again?
Traion: There is a miniboss you could do
Didero: Murdering the elderly is always a good idea
iridium_alchemist: Old man certainly seems dead to me.
Didero: Also, didn't we do this already?
asthanius: He is dead
ACSherman: he's dead
Robot_Bones: he dead
Traion: You cannot fight him
sir_slothing: yeah he's big dead
dukeofbread: not in this playthrough
Pengu92: He's super dead
TXC2: "he ain't real, he dead"

dukeofbread: you can come back and explore after beating last boss
asthanius: Boss doesn't kick you to NG+
Traion: Dark Souls rules. You have to start the ng+ manually
iridium_alchemist: you can choose to NG+ or keep playing
dukeofbread: only DS1 kicks you into NG+ right?
TXC2: dukeofbread yeap
Tom_Bruise: doesn't Bloodborne do that as well?
1y1e: chat, isn't there a redo of an old boss in a different boss's location now? if you get my meaning?
asthanius: Do you want to know where the final boss is? Or no?
asthanius: Gotcha
Traion: There is a textbox giving you a final warning before the boss so go nuts
TXC2: "when last we Sekiro'd....."
Traion: We just killed a Demon, don't these people know what a big deal we are?
beowuuf: clearly think we're weakened after boss fight
TXC2: nah, no social media back in those days Kappa
beowuuf: a hole thing? was james involved? MiniK
sir_slothing: why I there a random ninja on the roof
beowuuf: we'e killed all the specific ninjas
TXC2: they're a Nina, where else are they gonna be?
Traion: @sir_slothing to watch for other random ninjas like us I guess
TXC2: *ninja
jokeres: Ignored.
Didero: All I saw is you not dying at all
TXC2 everts thy gaze
ChroniclerC: Deaths: 0
richard_ermen: Saw you what? I saw nothing.
sir_slothing: yeah to be fair sekiro is a random ninja on a roof as well so you guys right
TXC2: !addquote (Wheeler) [now] Water usually leads to more water, you can quote me on that.
LRRbot: New quote #7789: "Water usually leads to more water, you can quote me on that." —Wheeler [2021-09-25]
beowuuf: it's the jedi warning, water leads to water, water leads to water, water leads to *water*
Traion: It says right there in the title that there are 7 spears Ben
TXC2: !findquote quote
LRRbot: Quote #2138: "Yes. There is a way to implement quote search so that you can look at Alex's butt." —qrpth [2016-03-22]
beowuuf: LOL
dukeofbread: Sekiro got flipped like a burger
iridium_alchemist: Oniwa. Now where did I hear that name before? Kappa
Didero: The eavesdrop didn't even finish last time, it seems
Traion: @iridium_alchemist you heard it echoing from the original scream of the VA
sir_slothing: demon of hatred getting revenge with the fire
dukeofbread: poor guy
Tom_Bruise: "Awh what the hell, I was playing dead!"
TXC2: gawash my finger slipped
asthanius: He invented the knot, right?
TXC2: a common misconception, he invented using knots to measure a boats speed Kappa
Didero: Maybe the one that increases sugar duration?
dukeofbread: shinobi eyes
Traion: Shinobi Eyes not close
Vyous: eyes easy
Robot_Bones: Look, Look with your special eyes
1y1e: pog dog
Didero: Wait, is the final fight going to be the first fight again?
accountmadeforants: I don't know if there's any specific deets/percentages to how it works, but Shinobi Eyes basically means "Mikiri Counter actually works properly more often"
Traion: Stabbing a child sure is a heroic thing to do Genichiro
accountmadeforants: (In that it does tons of posture damage)
TXC2: so we're fighting Dio?
Tom_Bruise: Now remember what Uncle Iroh the wall scroll taught you
beowuuf: it's fine, i killed my dad, so this is just a saturday night
Didero: Oh, only one life, this is going to be easy Kappa
MagicalAttackGecko: There is a chance Ben might oneshot this....
beowuuf: clearly just a nostalgia story boss to end on
Traion: @didero Yes and nothing bad will happen, and then there will be rainbows Kappa
Aranq13: Wow I didnt notice it but he totally is that va
accountmadeforants: It's time for the line! 👀
dukeofbread: imagine if it was
asthanius: congratulations you win
CaptainSpam: Aaaand the end! Good game.
beowuuf: i know we're trying to kill each other, but do you have to be so lrrEFFF in hostile

BusTed: mmhm.
TehAmelie: he's ARMED and dangerous
PixelArtDragon: Hello there!
MichaelVYee: Oh sweet I wasn’t sure if it was today or not
accountmadeforants: Remember the old guy you wanted to fight?
accountmadeforants: seabatClap Come, Sekiro!
Didero: so who is this again? >_>
sir_slothing: surprise and old man that died is no longer of the deaded
BusTed: Come...
iridium_alchemist: So for those in chat that are confused as to WTF just happened. The Mortal Blade he used is "Life" so he literally brought Isshin back from hell.
Didero: Oh, this is the old guy that was dead
TXC2: it's Oba Nubunaga Kappa
drfox17: oooh, tuned in for the isshin fight
TXC2: *Nobunaga
beowuuf: *there's* the three boss health buttons :p
Tom_Bruise: turns out, not *that* dead... well maybe *that* dead but, you know, it's like... oh nevermind
Tom_Bruise: it's too fucky
Traion: This fight rules btw. Probably the best fight FromSoft ever made
TehAmelie: maybe we can kick him off the cliff
TXC2: he was only mostly dead
accountmadeforants: Hell yeah, agreed Traion
TehAmelie: that'd be hilarious
beowuuf: "to glaive"
TimeToFry: Dang, his gauge recovers quick
whatthedubbot Welcome to What The Dub?!
Pengu92: This fight is beautiful, dead grandpa is awesome
Traion: 4 LIFES
Traion: 4 lifes if you count Genichiro
CAKHost: This is the real reason we put ointments on cuts. So our ancestors don't come back and try to sword fight samurai. Kappa
sir_slothing: this is technically a four bar fight if you count genichiro
Traion: sorry caps
drfox17: ichimonji
SK__Ren: got that double ichi
accountmadeforants: Genichiro doesn't count MiniK
Didero: Wait is Kuro just lying there? Are wre running over a dead child?
beowuuf: @sir_slothing who? Kappa
CaptainSpam: Unfortunately, the Sword Saint was ultimately defeated by the Long-Range Archery Angel and the Glock Cherubim.
Traion: @cakhost no I'm out of ointment. I'm scared
TXC2: this guy thinks he's Yorm!
sir_slothing: @didero yeah basically lol
dukeofbread: he knows the terrain sucks, he wants you to get stuck on the rocks
sir_slothing: @beowuuf yeah you right tbh
drfox17: just working it out
accountmadeforants: I would like to open door Phase number 2.
Didero: The phase after combat is Second Main, right? :p
Tom_Bruise: grab the whistle
beowuuf: @CaptainSpam they at least defeated the crotch kick ceraphim
Tom_Bruise: immortal supersamurai can't stand the noise of whistles
TXC2: Werner hertzog voice "I would like to see the next phase"
niccus: casual four-phase boss huh
Traion: I love how many of these boss moves you can do yourself: Genichiro uses Mortal Draw, Isshin Ichimonji for example
drfox17: niiice
Didero: Why is Ishinn called the 'Sword Saint'? He doesn't seem that saintly to me
drfox17: aight
Traion: @didero I think because it is Isshin at his most powerfu
TXC2: Didero it means he's REALLLY good with a sword
sir_slothing: @traion my favorite is owl because he uses all the shinobi styles
drfox17: probably the translation of Kensai
Traion: *powerful, the Saint part is just a translation thing
beowuuf: his skills s'aint nothin' to be sneezed at
Traion: ^
Didero: I guess that makes sense
ChroniclerC: "Saint" insomuch as he is a divine paragon.
TXC2: he's a saint as in he does Miracles with a sword
Juliamon: Being a sword saint is like being a parry god
Tom_Bruise: he's a saint as in others will issue prayers in his name for strength in battle
Didero: That's a good joke for when Ben inevitably kills him: More like Sword S'ain't, amirite
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
TehAmelie: how scary would it be if they had Werner Herzog saying "thiz isn't even my vinal vorm" when you get to the next phase
TehAmelie: would work in any game relaly
Traion: Can we take a moment to appreciate the music for this fight btw?
Didero: I don't trust myself to remember that for the 4 minutes it'll take Ben to kill him, so I thoguht I'd type it now
Tom_Bruise: @TehAmelie "This isn't my final form. Be humbled in my overwhelming misery and pain"
Didero: I do like his hat
sir_slothing: I like how nonchalant isshin swings his sword
dukeofbread: he's just practicing his saintly slashes
Tom_Bruise: oh no, not Wartorn mob
Tom_Bruise: just gotta watch out we don't spread the dragonrot to Wartorn Moby
dukeofbread: it looks like you can jump over it, but it needs to be mikir'd
dukeofbread: it's misleading
Traion: Dying on Genichiro is an instant mulligan for me. Also it never ever happened
Didero: I have never died to Genichiro
Didero: But that is only because I never played the game
dukeofbread: none of this ever happened
sir_slothing: you know what's wild, idk if he fully did it or only partially but someone has played this game only Goomba stomping people
accountmadeforants: Sorta like phase 1 of Lady Butterfly. "I shouldn't die here, I shouldn't even take damage!"
Traion: Yeah Genichiro kills you because you are thinking about Isshin. That is his most powerful move
dukeofbread: tbh the boss would have been great without this extra first phase
Robot_Bones: eyes closed on a DDR pad
Tom_Bruise: it's a FromSoft game; the moment you stop respecting anything, it'll kill you
accountmadeforants: The boss is great with the extra first phase, too. This is just kinda how first phases super powerful bosses work.
Tom_Bruise: To quote Cam the Everwise; everyone's a threat until they're dead
Traion: I think the fight would be worse without the Genichiro phase tbh
drfox17: nice jumps
dukeofbread: clean
TXC2: Tom_Bruise Cameron's clearly never worked at a morgue if he thinks that Kappa
beowuuf: to be fair, if we didn't have to keep fighting him first, would we even remember we fought him at all compared to isshin :p
Didero: You at least need the first phase to explain where Ishinn comes from
sir_slothing: I fully believe the first phase is to refill you resurrection power
TehAmelie: i only now realized our name is actually Sekiro, i thought we were joking about that all the time
drfox17: ooof got clipped
Jackomaning: Sekiro is a nickname that only this character calls you
TehAmelie: like John Halo
TehAmelie: oh
Didero: @TehAmelie Who did you think Sekiro was then?
BrowneePoints: I wish you luck Wheeler. This boss shaved days off my life from stress.
Robot_Bones: yeah strangly not a John Darksoul situation
accountmadeforants: If they wanted to make him skippable, I believe he deserved a few more phases of his own. But I like him as-is, as a way to brush up your fundamentals and put you in the right mindset.
dukeofbread: @BrowneePoints same here
TehAmelie: i didn't think it was someone's name
drfox17: @TehAmelie the character is "wolf"
Didero: I thought 'Wolf' was the nickname
sir_slothing: I think closes thing to a name for him would be wolf since that what owl and Kurt call him
Jackomaning: Main character is named Wolf and Sekiro is a nickname from the Japanese for "One armed wolf"
BrowneePoints: Wolf is our Name, Sekiro is a nickname Isshin gave us
dukeofbread: you do well and then you die in phase 2-3 and get frustrated, then you die to genichiro
Tom_Bruise: I'm sure there's enough weebs in chat to get an answer; does "Sekiro" translate to anything?
drfox17: i mean, "wolf" is the name his father gave him
accountmadeforants: Like, if you're taking hits from Genichiro, you're probably gonna die to Isshin.
1y1e: you don't get to be the s word saint by giving people time to heal
Didero: So Ishinn is that important, that the entire game is named after the nickname he made up for us?
sir_slothing: yep
drfox17: yuuuup
BrowneePoints: I mean...he's the final boss for a reason lol
drfox17: here we go, phase 2
Jackomaning: @Tom_Bruise it's a shortening of "One armed Wolf"
dukeofbread: hesitation is defeat
accountmadeforants: Didn't the Rat Quest guy come up with the nickname? Or did they both decide on that one.

TimeToFry: LUL
dukeofbread: he's a glock saint now
drfox17: And a gun
lion_byte: gun spear
sir_slothing: he's also the samurai in the opening that kills the big dude
Didero: Why does a SWORD saint get an uzi?
Pengu92: Glock Saint Enters the Battle!
Traion: Spear, sword, and gun. Isshin has 3 arms Kappa
Tom_Bruise: @Jackomaning okay, didn't expect it to be *that* literal. Thanks tho
Jackomaning: @accountmadeforants They are actually the same guy, the fact that they both call you Sekiro is what makes Wolf notice
Didero: @Traion Maybe he kept one of Genichiro's arms :p
beowuuf: @Didero name was part of his tactics *forehead*
accountmadeforants: The gun fires tiny swords, and the spear's tip is also a sword. What? You're gonna argue with Isshin?
Tom_Bruise: his third face he's just gonna turn his arm into a Dragon
niccus: i recommend not bringing a sword to a gun fight
accountmadeforants: @accountmadeforants Ah, I completely overlooked that because the fact that you get a quest to slay some "rats" is way too funny to me.
TehAmelie: he has "become" the sword, he doesn't need to use one
sir_slothing: Wait it's the seventh spear guys
Didero: We've got time, just keep going Kappa
TXC2: to be fair, a gun in this time period makes more sense then a repeating crossbow :p
beowuuf: this is clearly the locutus reveal of sekiro games Kappa
AlucardMarkov: Was there any other boss killed earlier today?
Didero: What else am I going to do, go to bed at a reasonable hour?
thraximore: I take it we killed Demon of Hatred? quick turnaround
Mattmitchell45: Sekiro Blaps Blap
TXC2: AlucardMarkov yes, the dark souls esque one
Traion: Him having all these weapons fits with the core rule of the Ashina Style being "Do whatever works"
Didero: @AlucardMarkov Demon of Hatred
accountmadeforants: thraximore Shortly after returning from break, yeah
drfox17: you know, that is a good point, this fight does refill the ressurection thingy
Traion: @accountmadeforants another "hint" is the fact that the Tengu asks you if you've mastered an ultimate technique and after Isshinn dies Emma has a scroll she is supposed to give you when you mastered an ultimate technique
thraximore: attempts where you don't perfect genichibro don't count :)
BrowneePoints: The type of spear Isshin uses is called a Kama-Yari or Sickle Spear, and he took it off the dude in the opening cinematic
accountmadeforants: Traion Dang, that's really neat. I should pay more attention this playthrough.
dukeofbread: ez
thraximore: see? not THIS is an actual attempt
dukeofbread: "I need my pellets" are we a hamster?
Traion: Isshin slowly striding towards you through the white field is such a cool visual
Didero: @BrowneePoints You expect me to still remember the opening? :p
accountmadeforants: That slow walk towards you, man. "C'mon kid, parries are for closers. Now get back here."
sir_slothing: I'm just imagining an old man yelling a sekiro to get back her as he runs away to eat pellets from his pocket
beowuuf: just i just forget that september 25th is a fireworks worthy holiday in the UK?
Traion: @beowuuf Boris managed to go potty without soiling his pants so fireworks Kappa

Didero: @TXC2 Are you implying Genichiro ATE Ishinn?
accountmadeforants: Isshin crawling out of Genichiro's body, rejuvenated, is the future the 0.1% want.
CAKHost: @accountmadeforants Is THAT why everyone keeps saying "eat the rich"? o.O
Didero: It's eat or be eaten
beowuuf: sometimes you yeet the rich, but only in to someone else's mouth
accountmadeforants: @accountmadeforants Yes, but masticate properly
