TehAmelie: halo
TehAmelie: i woke up from a 5 hour nap and made up this joke https://i.imgur.com/lgQZcWz.png
beowuuf: don't get the political bit yet, appreciate the cute cat
TehAmelie: Jeff is just a drama queen
beowuuf: no, wait, i knew this meme, nm :p
TehAmelie: and hiding it by pretending to ironically be Miette
TXC2: "I was a political prisoner" "how?" "I kicked a giant mouse in the butt, do I have to draw you a diagram?"
beowuuf: aww, nice personal twist
laikagoat: lrrSIG wheelerMonkey lrrSIG wheelerMonkey lrrSIG
beowuuf: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG
thraximore: is a nap still a nap if it lasts 5 hours? or is it just a small sleep?

TXC2: SUB HYPE BEGINS
TXC2: lrrHORN lrrSPOT lrrHORN
Pengu92: Howdy chat!
EkstraLangeDruer: IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN *doot* *doot* *doooot* *dooot*
benjamin_wheeler: I'm ready for this, but not ready for this to end :(
Didero: I'm ready with my food and my usual supply of dumb remarks, let's do this!
TehAmelie: or the final cut-down, as the case may be?
beowuuf: more like the cinal cut-down, amirite gamers
beowuuf: *final
TehAmelie: good drift
Didero: benjamin_wheeler We won't tell James you finished the game if you don't :p
EkstraLangeDruer: Shit I was looking for that jole but didn't get there
EkstraLangeDruer: *joke
beowuuf: lol, yours was quicker and spelled correctly tehamilie :D
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Today is the final day of @BWheelerMTG Play it Forward session feat. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. | Presumably today is the day he’ll die for the second, and final time. http://twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun 📷 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FAOhQXpVkAEymBk.jpg || https://www.twitter.com/loadingreadyrun/status/1442173614611070988
beowuuf: we will miss wheeler weekend and sekiro :(
Didero: That is a good photo
Pengu92: Wheeler Weekends will live on in the hearts of the best Twitch chat on Twitch
beowuuf: plus presumably in the tag line which graham and paul must have incorporated everywhere by now :p
Didero: And here too Kappa
TehAmelie: if i ever get to Dark Souls 3 and then this game i'll always remember the LP fondly when i play it
TXC2: "well, we'll always have the VODs"
accountmadeforants: The first death is when you start playing Sekiro, and it just ganks you in a cutscene. The second death is when you finish playing Sekiro. :(
beowuuf: and ben, soon you will have elden ring.... like... really soon. Bloody hell, four months? what is time?
Didero: Finishing a videogame always feels a bit sad for some reason
CAKHost: I named one of my chickens in Friends of Mineral Town "Sekiro" in memory of these streams :)
accountmadeforants: I refuse to believe Elden Ring exists until I'm playing it. And even then, I'll probably need some convincing.
TXC2: here we GO!
Didero: Unless it was a shitty videogame you're just finishing out of stubborn determination :p
TXC2: Hello Wheeler
beowuuf: @accountmadeforants i mean the fact they promised nothing until the last minute makes me think it will come out when they say
beowuuf: morning wheeler!
Didero: Hi Ben!
CAKHost: Hello Ben!
CAKHost: Omg, so cute <3
TXC2: ah there's the pinkie
beowuuf: whew, my british soul was worried over the pinkie
accountmadeforants: The... coffee? Milk tea? It means nothing.
thraximore: if that's not Sake it's not Sekiro
Didero: oh shit it's the fine china, we gettin' serious now
beowuuf: we';ve got our neckbraces, we can handly emotional whiplash :p
Pengu92: Busted out the fine China for the finale!
Tom_Bruise: So here we are, ready to go unto the breach, where we'll die one last pair of times
beowuuf: some would say supremacy
Didero: Wait, I just remembered the giant fish, did we ever kill that?
beowuuf: the last boss isshin alone Kappa
accountmadeforants: Fight the last boss a few times to make sure it exists. :V
Leonhart321: Hey, missed a few since life got in the way health wise and such. We hunting pre boss secrets?
benjamin_wheeler: !patreon
LRRbot: 2686 patrons for a total of $19,926.14 per month. https://www.patreon.com/loadingreadyrun
beowuuf: @Leonhart321 basically sounds like, we tried the last boss at the v end of last stream a couple of times.
TXC2: Leonhart321 today should be final boss day
beowuuf: @Leonhart321 also lrrHEART, hope you're better!
Tom_Bruise: Isshin, the Sword Saint
beowuuf: isshin saint of swords
BrowneePoints: Sword Saint Isshin
beowuuf: nm, tom bruise has it
Didero: Consider this the warm-up
Tom_Bruise: and his host-body, Kenny G the Saxaphone player
Leonhart321: @Leonhart321 Painkillers and some light dental treatment gel helped
EkstraLangeDruer: Isshin Ashina, Sword/Spear/Pistol Saint
beowuuf: sword s'aint nothin' but a thing isshin
TehAmelie: he's more sword than saint, or so we can hope
Leonhart321: So at this point, are practically all bets off spoilers wise?
TehAmelie: do you know how hard it would be to kill a living saint?
EkstraLangeDruer: I think I know which one it is
beowuuf: isshin, ommision about the postol isn't a lie just a tactic
Tom_Bruise: well he also becomes a Sword-and-Gunlance Saint, so that's just uncalled for
Didero: @Leonhart321 Obviously not for endgame spoilers
TXC2: Leonhart321 not really no :p
Leonhart321: Ah, got it
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.
BrowneePoints: you killed him
Didero: Didn't you already kill the miniboss in here?
SacrificialToast: there was one of the one armed ninja guys in there yeah
BrowneePoints: ooooooooooh.
Didero: You're not thinking of that giant fire demon, are you? Kappa
SacrificialToast: might be below Isshin's room?
Didero: It's Sunday, it's his one day off
EkstraLangeDruer: Yep, you are not hallucinating. He's around but not in this dojo
beowuuf: victory really is inevitable at this point
3 raiders from zapshakur have joined!
beowuuf: hey raiders! good timing, we've just started sergeHi
Leonhart321: Nice
Didero: what's that do?
SacrificialToast: Sabimaru is fun
beowuuf: ben is checking out some missed things before we hit the final boss
blastertond: lrrHEART_HF
accountmadeforants: It sabis some more-u
Tom_Bruise: it just feels good, and that's good enough
SacrificialToast: it does poison through block, but one of the earlier ones might have done that already?
TXC2: Hello Raiders
accountmadeforants: This guy! Love him!
Didero: but why the eyes
BrowneePoints: Wait a second, how the heck is that man iai'ing with a nodachi!?
Didero: Turns out getting stabbed hurts
TXC2: Iaido baby!
beowuuf: @Didero more importantly, why does one not wink out when we get them down to phase two!
CAKHost: Did a Dark Souls player die by him?
Tom_Bruise: Mizuo, I think you left your bicycle lights on. Also they're on your face for some reason
thraximore: red eyes are a helluva drug
Didero: @Didero That would be amazing
accountmadeforants: @BrowneePoints He studied the blade real good
BrowneePoints: @accountmadeforants Nodachi were historically not sheathed because they were "Big Ass Blades"(tm)
Didero: Turns out it doesn't one-hit kill you!
accountmadeforants: His major was in blade preservation. @BrowneePoints
Pengu92: Those eyes of his are glowing red, their loud roar tells him to grab victory
Didero: woah
accountmadeforants: seabatClap
TXC2: gottem
BrowneePoints: Wheeler, Stylish, Handsome AND good at video games
beowuuf: i'll give you it right back once i've finished the boss battle...
Tom_Bruise: oh right, the war..
Didero: Wait, that's another fourth bead, right?
EkstraLangeDruer: yep
BrowneePoints: Did we get the wet fruit and the dry fruit?
EkstraLangeDruer: *technically*
beowuuf: did we ever get the snake>
CAKHost: Could be second God?
thraximore: fish god
Didero: no fatshaming
EkstraLangeDruer: @beowuuf no, also that's spoiler-ish
beowuuf: moderators keep stress from chat down, reduce potential of stress eating
Tom_Bruise: It's off for a nap
Didero: i showed you my bait pls respond
CAKHost: Check on them?
Leonhart321: We gave you the bait, we didn't ASK to be baited
beowuuf: @beowuuf oh, i thought ben had 'hey chatted' about that after he'd got around it, sorry
Didero: maybe they just have a tummy ache and needed a nap
CAKHost: Oh okay
CAKHost: I thought this was a "wafer thin mint" situation
Didero: Maybe there's more bait hidden somewhere?
TehAmelie: maybe the game wants you to snipe it from the surface? if you're supposed to kill the fishy
beowuuf: oh no, we made carp god go away
Didero: r u ok
BrowneePoints: Yea I can't really give any hints for anything left, cuz it's super esoteric and would get into spoilery stuff
Didero: can't see you cry if you're underwater
TXC2: things are better where it's wetter
Leonhart321: We want to be, where the fishes are. We want to see, want to see them swimming
Tom_Bruise: I hear the sound of someone breathing. I bet there's a guy skulking in the sha-oh no wait, it's me breathing
beowuuf: there are no allegations just friendly coruscations
Didero: Maybe he's floating somewhere belly-up
TehAmelie: never seen a fish graveyard before

CaptainSpam: How much death can one shadow take?
beowuuf: i suspect the number is greater than 1, but less than 3
Didero: @CaptainSpam Two, it's right in the game title, pay attention :p
TehAmelie: two death?
BrowneePoints: It did go somewhere
CaptainSpam: @Didero Oh, hey, there it is, whadya know. Carry on, then!
beowuuf: 16th century boy
Didero: ohno, pot guy!
mitomanox: i c a wheeler! <3
beowuuf: who killed pot friend?
Didero: Can't have been us
TXC2: !findquote pot
LRRbot: Quote #3097: "I make onion and pot." —Beej [2016-08-03]
beowuuf: that was second pot friend not original pot friend, right?
Tom_Bruise: I'm sure all these potheads are just having naps from too many muchies
Didero: I have literally no idea what you're talking about, wheeler :p
Tom_Bruise: oh that's not scary at all
beowuuf: i mean it wasn't a total loss, i have the start pf eulogy in my head now
beowuuf: huh
Pengu92: Excuse me WHAT
Leonhart321: I am become fish
Didero: To understand the carp, you must become the carp
beowuuf: i mean this is great, but what?
Moonspeak721: what a good video game
Pengu92: Sekiro: Pots become Fish
CaptainSpam: Well? Are you going to give the nice salesfish scales or what? :p
Alness49: Become as Carp
Didero: Don't let your dreams be dreams, I guess
TXC2: the mad lad did it
Leonhart321: Don't let your dreams be bream
Tom_Bruise: What a mad lad, he turned himself into a carp
beowuuf: it's a great game when all these tertiary characters have character arcs
SK__Ren: Reject Diem, Return to Carpe
thraximore: what an inspiration
DiscordianTokkan: Tired: Carcinization. Wired: CARPinization
klooswep: I'm gonna do it! I'm gonna become a fish! Just try and stop me!
Leonhart321: And you too can become as carp, as long as you don't trout yourself
Didero: But surely a giant fish can't just disappear...
BrowneePoints: ^ Correct
Tom_Bruise: Place your bets, will the Gunlance stance kill us?
beowuuf: press T to trout
TXC2: !findquote carp
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
Didero: Cue to starting the bossfight and Ishinn is frying a giant fish :p
Leonhart321: @Didero Please, this is Japan. He's making Sashimi
TehAmelie: two attempts, obvs
Tom_Bruise: At least four
klooswep: 69 attempts
Didero: Channel Prediction!
Pengu92: One try
beowuuf: one and done no doubt
TXC2: less then 10
BrowneePoints: I believe in you, but this guy is among the hardest FromSoft bosses I've ever fought
uniqusrnam: This is all I've seen of the game in the last five minutes and so far it appears to be a souls game based around fish and cosplaying a ninja...
beowuuf: can we do a prediction? :p
Didero: I can't answer that question without knowing whether you took your second pill, Wheeler
Leonhart321: Well, considering what I had to do for this fight, and your skill level, and the sheer absuive cheese strat I used......17 attempts
fragilepaper: 8 times
Didero: Took second pill? Then 2 attempts
beowuuf: who's that?
beowuuf: MiniK
Tom_Bruise: Kenny G, the Saxaphone player
beowuuf: yeah, I'm going with the forgettableness of the first part as a runner :p
Leonhart321: Also, I really hope that when they release and are finished with Elden Ring, they just start working on the sequel
beowuuf: bless you
EkstraLangeDruer: Not to brag, but I legit killed Midir on my first try
Leonhart321: Yeah, Genichiro is the mulligan of this whole sequnece
EkstraLangeDruer: Didn't even know I was walking into a bossfight
Didero: Also, first one is the warm-up, that doesn't count either
Pengu92: Pre-gaming on bosses, seems legit
Tom_Bruise: off to a great start
beowuuf: @Leonhart321 their great power is you thinking about isshin when you have to face them again, so they kill you :p
TehAmelie: the stage reminds me too much of the Boss fight in MGS3. that was the worst
fragilepaper: 1
klooswep: Count is on 0
BrowneePoints: My dad works at Sekiro
Leonhart321: @Leonhart321 No lies detected
TXC2: sun was in his eyes
beowuuf: second pill was a placebo
Didero: Like in Formula 1 and the car tires, Real Gamers need to warm up their controller for Ultimate Gaming
Tom_Bruise: let's put the count on 0(1)
Marethyou: Victory is inevitable!
Leonhart321: Oh god, it IS
fragilepaper: You sold me
Leonhart321: That's probably the best analogy actually. Genichiro is the Frieda to the Saint Blackflame
beowuuf: lrrFINE
TXC2: except that Frieda is hard A F :p
fragilepaper: ^
beowuuf: @TXC2 i mean Genichiro has killed wheeler at least once, so...
TXC2: beowuuf fair
Leonhart321: Also, they do have you fight him a fair number of times
accountmadeforants: He said the line!
Tom_Bruise: ok, first shot, here we go
TXC2: COP: Continuous Offensive Power
klooswep: Isshin, Sword-and-Spear-and-Gun Saint
TehAmelie: remember the guy with the gun in Bushido Blade? such cheats
TXC2: *Pressure
Leonhart321: Wait, poison works on him?
accountmadeforants: Sekiro has a flame thrower and a blade that's covered in just... so much poison. He's no longer allowed to complain about cheats, unfortunately.
SacrificialToast: the poison adds some nice vitality damage
Leonhart321: Can I revise my guess at attempts to 4?
TehAmelie: must be so embarrassing for him when he busts out a 360° slash with a ten meter range and doesn't hit anything
klooswep: bloobyGun
BrowneePoints: I think it was a massive range thrust
TehAmelie: Jagganath in Kill 6 Billion Demons had a better idea: a perfect sphere of sword
SacrificialToast: Isshin, Gun Saint
Tom_Bruise: ok, so we didn't make it first try
Pengu92: Does that one count? or was that still warm-up
TXC2: reminds me of the bad guy from Yojimbo
Leonhart321: For the sheer wall this fight is, I still think it's the single best final boss of a FromSoft Soulslike
Tom_Bruise: one try that counted, one try that didn't count, so 1(2)
TehAmelie: From are always like "NG+, now the game truly begins"
KidAmn: be, aggressive, be be aggressive
Tom_Bruise: Doesn't the game "truly begin" at basically every turn?
Traion: Hey Ben, hey Chat. Have we murdered Isshin yet?
Leonhart321: 2nd try
TXC2: hello Traion welcome
Carlioo: why does he have a samurai hat anyway
kristian_fischer: Like a skin suit he stepped out of.
Leonhart321: Or at least collapses like a skin suit
klooswep: Just Isshin, wearing his grandson's skin as a cape
Carlioo: did he bring his cool hat to the afterlife as well?
Leonhart321: @Carlioo Wouldn't you if you could?
kristian_fischer: It's all about the hats.
Tom_Bruise: was that you trying that thing?
Leonhart321: One step forward, one death reset back
fragilepaper: the death was worthwile
beowuuf: hey traion, how went the counting?
Didero: The real murder was the knowledge we gained on the way?
Traion: @beowuuf good
beowuuf: sergeJustGood
theblakdeth: I was inspired by this stream to finally get into Hollow Knight. digging it so far!
beowuuf: * sergeJustRight even
Tom_Bruise: the real second death was the first death we met along the way

thraximore: how many attempts are we on?
mitomanox: killing_yourself_to_live-BlackSabbath.mp3
accountmadeforants: I think the vendor who sold you the fire crackers?
Traion: @theblakdeth you are in for a treat!
accountmadeforants: (The crow mob, that is)
beowuuf: despite everything this is the first time i've ever directly tied the name 'hollow knight' as very dark souls name :p
beowuuf: @thraximore this stream or in general?
thraximore: it explains all the times you've been hit while jumping around :D
SacrificialToast: I was a big fan of High Monk in the Senpou book
Traion: Did we do aome grinding earlier in the stream?
TXC2: Traion not really
theblakdeth: @beowuuf It's somewhere between a souls-like and a Metroidvania.
Tom_Bruise: So we've only unlocked Air Guards now, while Street Fighter phased it out after Alpha III? Come on!
TehAmelie: i believe the Street Fighter 2 meta changed significantly when they introduced mid-air blocking
beowuuf: @Traion we checked out one of the memories, and looked in on big fish (quiet) and pot friend (got other pot guy, became fish)
thraximore: Genichibro doesn't count
Didero: Traion We only tried to find the giant carp, but after feeding him some more he disappeared and we couldn't find him again
Traion: @txc2 was curious why we had skill points again
TehAmelie: well, we both went right to Street Fighter there, i count that as a drift
accountmadeforants: Haha 360 and just walk away to dodge! *dead*
Tom_Bruise: it was the one other game series I could think of with parries *this* good
TXC2: Traion maybe Wheeler did some off camera, I don;t know
beowuuf: wow, that red eyed bodyguard fight was apparently as forgettable as Genichiro :p
kristian_fischer: Bob Sekiro - There's A Lot
accountmadeforants: I wish I could mash to "no, just let me die an honorable death" more quickly.
TXC2: OH that's right, we killed a mini boss
Didero: Oh wait, we also killed a miniboss, in the building with all the blue shinobi where Ben grinded for confetti before
TehAmelie: or "no, let me save those revives for a better attempt"?
Tom_Bruise: ok, third try, let's go
Carlioo: sorry if this is a stupid questions, but how many healing gourds do you get per life?
beowuuf: mini boss is crying red glowing tears about how quickly chat just moved on
iridium_alchemist: and you killed a big fish!
TXC2: Carlioo I think we have 10 now?
accountmadeforants: Carlioo At this point: 10. At the start just 1.
Carlioo: ah, thanks
beowuuf: 8.5K channel points away from 400K!
kristian_fischer: You met his sword instead
Didero: Hey Ben, did you know you can hold X to collect loot? Thanks, loading screen!
Tom_Bruise: that was a long walk to the funny bone
beowuuf: look, we understand, you want this appreciate this fight for as long as possible, it's fine :p
Traion: Have you tried asking him for his phase 2 gun? Might help you with the boss Kappa
fragilepaper: And it's the funny bone that does all the hurt
klooswep: The Arm-bone's connected to the, sword-bone, and the sword-bone's connect to your, kidneys
accountmadeforants: I fucking love Genichiro's tacticool roll after firing an arrow
TehAmelie: we shall boil his funny bone to make a laughing stock
Didero: Unadulterated hatred
mowdownjoe: Man, I remember Adam ramming his head against the boss for a bit on his home stream.
SacrificialToast: i'm pretty sure he always does it?
accountmadeforants: I think just being close and somewhere in front
EkstraLangeDruer: It depends on where you are in relation to him
beowuuf: @TehAmelie still a great pun
Leonhart321: Think it's proximity. If not that, then FromSoft coding hatred?
accountmadeforants: And "in front" is basically an 180 cone.
EkstraLangeDruer: He does it if he thinks he can get you with it
EkstraLangeDruer: Isshin switches his comboes up a lot to try and catch you off guard
EkstraLangeDruer: It's position based
klooswep: Swisshin, The Ord Saint
Didero: Isshin, more like IsSHIT, amirite
Traion: Charles? Not Charles!
TehAmelie: Is-going-to-get-kicked-in-his-shin
BrowneePoints: More like Isshin, the Sword Lame't HA! Got eem
beowuuf: @Didero save it for later when he's not dumpstering us :p
Didero: @Didero I don't think I can remember that dumb joke for 2 hours though Kappa
beowuuf: yup, we're taking multiple goes to kick his ass just to show him who is boss
beowuuf: @Didero :D
kristian_fischer: SEND IN THE HOGS!
beowuuf: nothing wrong with re-enacting the ending of the young master
TehAmelie: we're undermining his confidence with my-face-to-your-sword style
Traion: Phase 1 Isshin fights you so effortless. Like you are more of a curiosity than an actual opponent. Then he changes demeanor in Phase 2. It is a neat bit of in fight characterisation
Didero: I think you should specify that you're the one being aggressive, because I think Ishinn interprets it as a command Kappa
kristian_fischer: It's really a piece of social realism.
Tom_Bruise: Let's just hope his phase 3 is like an encouraging dad to his toddler on a tricycle
BusTed: "Nah I'm good"
beowuuf: as someone pointed out in chat yesterday, we're just doing all this fighting over the top of kiro, right? :p poor young lord is more forgotten than Genichiro and that mini-boss
TXC2: Tom_Bruise so shouting at us until we cry?
fragilepaper: Oh hey BusTed!
BusTed: @fragilepaper Hello!
SacrificialToast: Genichiro is annoying because he's not particularly difficult, but bleeds your resources just because you want to get the fight over with as fast as possible
beowuuf: soulslike teaches you patience in combat, and then tests you with Genichiro to see if you learned the lesson :p
Traion: @beowuuf Kuro got stabbed in the stomach by a magic sword. I think he is no longer a concern Kappa
Tom_Bruise: @TXC2 well I was thinking gentile and holding on as he's letting you succeed, but sure, that's a more reasonable expectation
TRAGIC_can: is this lasy boss?
accountmadeforants: Genichiro is peak "how dare you make me bleed my own blood"
TRAGIC_can: *last
TXC2: TRAGIC_can yes
Didero: Presumably! We don't know for sure though, so don't spoil anything
Didero: Or do we know?
Tom_Bruise: or his phase 3 is just gonna be him turning into a sentient gun
accountmadeforants: But as I said last time, still a super good first phase as a warm up and to put you on your toes.
beowuuf: @Traion we've been stabbed by worse and look at us. I mean... not right now, but ...
kristian_fischer: @Tom_Bruise So he's Megatron?
beowuuf: "Such heroic nonsense..."

Didero: Do you mean 'WHEEL out of your system'? Kappa
TXC2: at some point Isshin is gonna hit us with "Confidence is a slow and insidious killer" and I'm gonna scream :p
beowuuf: Genichiro is starscream? seems about right
Tom_Bruise: either that, or last whackadoo prediction; phase 3 is Isshin becoming Bayonetta
Leonhart321: @beowuuf So does that make Isshin Megatron, Galvatron or Unicron?
kristian_fischer: @Tom_Bruise His fashion sense isn't good enough.
Traion: Now that I think about it. The first Genichiro fight is the end of the tutorial. The second Genichiro fight is forcing you to prove you learned your fundamentals before the game opens up. And this the third Genichiro fight forces you to show everything you've learned over the game. It is a neat symmetry
Leonhart321: Someone beat the Gargolyes
Didero: I heard
BusTed: They were picking up.
TimeToFry: Oh we heard 'em
Didero: But for whom does the bells toll?
kristian_fischer: But anime is usually about killing God?
beowuuf: @Leonhart321 given how Isshin ruins Genichiro just then, I'm saying Galvatron :D
thraximore: Sometimes I wonder about that kid and how he's doing
beowuuf: @Didero ask not, for it tolls for *thee* !
beowuuf: @thraximore who? MiniK
Didero: @Didero Oh no, who could have forseen this? D:
TXC2: kristian_fischer yes, they are opposing forces, hence why having both is so powerful
kristian_fischer: Ah, balance.
Leonhart321: Building suspense
beowuuf: so if this is all about balance, does that make us Sekiro Sword Devil, or Sekiro Sword God? :)
Traion: Time for machine gun and spear and sword. You know dual wielding
kristian_fischer: Ah, he pulled a polearm out his butt. Naginata, I wanna say?
Carlioo: ah yes, the only thing stronger than sword: sword on stick
beowuuf: really just feels like bloodborne boss outta nowhere :p
TehAmelie: did i see wrong or did the old man parry every pellet of our shotgun?
fragilepaper: @Traion I don't play soulsborne games as I don't have the skills but that doesn't stop them b=from being a very good form of storytelling
beowuuf: isshin = enemy hunter with his trick weapon and pistol
TXC2: kristian_fischer a Naginata has a curved blade
kristian_fischer: ah
Traion: Nah this is a strange pike not a naginata @kristian_fischer
Pengu92: From games feel like one huge training montage in preparation for the final fight.
beowuuf: i mean you have to have a omntage
thraximore: The leaping backward sweep was my nemesis in this fight
beowuuf: *montage
theblakdeth: @thraximore me too!
Traion: The setting, the music, and how is weapons interact with the arena. This fight is just a treat
beowuuf: yeah, fromsoft are just masters of blending all this stuff together
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: wheeler's real nemesis is contractual obligation
Leonhart321: This fight is the perfect combination of atmosphere, design, stakes, game design and sheer absolute [REDACTED] this game has to offer
Traion: I don't think I've seen someone get to this fight and not be blown away by it. It is a masterpiece in boss design
Traion: Okay break time is time to look at election results brb
ContingentCat: election results? from where?
subspacenova: Deutschland is having theirs, right?
ContingentCat: ohh cool
beowuuf: didn't iceland just have theirs too?
TehAmelie: a good sized boss arena to keep the camera in line, but it doesn't feel artificial. every part is so well put together
Traion: Objectively positive news: election participation is up 0.8 points
TehAmelie: hooray
TXC2: and we're back
Pengu92: Welcome back!
beowuuf: wb
Tom_Bruise: meanwhile, us Swamp-Germans had our elections 6 months ago and we're still on an interim government smdh
Traion: Use Hidden Tooth Kappa
Didero: Have you tried using divine confetti? We may have to grind for some more of it though Kappa
Tom_Bruise: oh hey, videogames!
Fanklok: What if 5 confetti
Didero: That doesn't seem like a great trade
Traion: I was a big fan of tanto
Tom_Bruise: so it's if you really reall *really* want this game to be Bloodborne
thraximore: the Tanto is the Bloodborne item
MilkInBags: Hello Benjamin! Good luck with that absurd boss
TXC2: hello MilkInBags welcome
fragilepaper: Milk!
Traion: I have mulliganed this fight for missing that Mikiri counter before
Traion: Hey Milk
thraximore: go left, please
MilkInBags: yeet
Traion: We saw nothing
MilkInBags: mercury coke PogChamp
ElfLawyer: hidey ho Benjamin & chat
Tom_Bruise: so is jumping into a cliff the Sekiro-equivalent of the shame-concede?
beowuuf: the freakend if you will
ElfLawyer: how's he doing against the boss
thraximore: I'm just imagining his reaction to watching Sekiro YEET himself off the cliff
TXC2: a diet coke, so bougie Kappa
Traion: A whole can of Diet Coke? What extravagance
beowuuf: @ElfLawyer by anecotal evidence, about the high end of how you would expect
mitomanox: and radioactive oatmeal
TXC2: !clips
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
mitomanox: highlights
BusTed: And worship whatever the Roman equivalent of Hermes is.
MilkInBags: the most depressing fact about this boss is when you realize there's 42 phases Kappa
beowuuf: just give this man some lrrEFF ing <redacted>
TXC2: BusTed Mercury?
beowuuf: @MilkInBags 43, cause everyone forgets Genichiro :p
BusTed: @TXC2 lrrGOAT
accountmadeforants: Forward and B for what?
Traion: Neutral B is a bit easier
accountmadeforants: Mikiri is neutral B, mainly, yeah. But it is riskier if you miss it.
Didero: B flat is an interesting key, maybe try that
beowuuf: nah, the equivalent to hermes is parcel force :p
MilkInBags: Don't worry, you'll dream about his moves once you try to beat it for 4 hours straight
TehAmelie: kind of a power move to bust out Gough's greatbow there with the oppo standing an arm's length away in front of you
Traion: Perfectly parrying that rapid attack combo from Genichiro makes you feel like a god
Didero: Is this where we tell you to try pyromancy?
TXC2: this dude is gatekeeping us!
beowuuf: @Didero ben is having too much trouble with jumping as it is, let alone jumping jack flash
Tom_Bruise: welp, Join us Monday for the climactic finally of Wheeler's PiF of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
AlucardMarkov: So are any other bosses dead yet Ben?
Didero: @Didero I'm not cultured enough to get that reference, sorry
accountmadeforants: "FromSoft, I'm going to Twitch stream and I need your strongest bosses!" -"You can't handle my bosses. They're too strong for you!"
Didero: All the bosses are dead, except the ones that aren't
AlucardMarkov: I mean in this stream
ContingentCat: Marx would be proud
AlucardMarkov: Sorry
MilkInBags: Phase 1 out of 217 Kreygasm
TXC2: accountmadeforants nice
Didero: Ben killed a miniboss in the blue-dudes castle
Traion: Just a miniboss Ben had missed previously
beowuuf: @Didero oh, it's an old film with whoopie goldberg called jumping jack flash, that being the codename of a spy she gets in contact with. To get in to encrypted chat with him, he says to sing the key - jumping jack flash the rolling stones song is in b flat, that was the code key. I now realise how long a journey it was for that comment, sorry! :p
MilkInBags: What's the best Ben did against this boss?

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, fluffybumhole! (Today's storm count: 5)
Didero: @Didero Explaining jokes always makes them better :p I didn't even know it was a Rolling Stones song either
Traion: Phase 2 50% ish Milk
MilkInBags: nice
Fanklok: I'm confused where did Genichiro go? Is this a boss rush?
TXC2: beowuuf almost as long as a Wheeler joke
beowuuf: we've seen the phase 2 pistol and long weapon bloodborne cheats :p
beowuuf: @TXC2 i like to think it had a point though :p
mitomanox: "sword saint" is overrated
Tom_Bruise: Someone turn up the Death Grips, 'cuz this man's about to get got
TimeToFry: @Fanklok We're skipping the cutscene that shows what happens
TXC2: Fanklok no, we kill Genchiro, then Isshin comes out of his body
Didero: @Fanklok Turns out Isshin was inside Genichiro all along
mitomanox: i guess warrior names are always overrated
TXC2: beowuuf touché
beowuuf: @Didero 110% :D Let me take an hour to explain wheeler's horse joke...
Traion: @fanklok Ben skipped the cutscene (because we've seen it before) Genichiro kills himself with a sword covered in Kuro's divine blood and Isshin climbs out of the wound because restoring Ashina to glory was Genichiro's wish
Didero: I think I still have a 30 minute Youtube video open from last Desert Bus called 'Wheeler's Horse Joke' that I still haven't watched...
mitomanox: glory and honor in general are overrated, i guess?
Fanklok: @beowuuf Wow explaining it in a tenth of the time it takes to tell, impressive
TXC2: the horse joke super cut, it's great
beowuuf: @Didero it is a delight, i missed it live so glad to have seen it on the youtube vod without the interruption :p
Didero: oh no, he R1'ed back!
Traion: I hear this DB is just one singular horse joke from start to finish
beowuuf: @Traion which is quite impressive inception level execution given we're still in beej's intro
TXC2: I mean Desert bus (the game) is basically an 8 hour horse joke, but it's a bus
thraximore: "come!" "just a sec let me eat these PELLETS"
Traion: Beej is eternal @beowuuf
beowuuf: @TXC2 lrrWOW but more 'my eyes have been opened'
Fanklok: Dodging is for cowards
TXC2: ah yes, Beej's intro from like 5 years ago :p
Fanklok: Real dark soulsers suit up in full havel and tank it
beowuuf: at some point the bracket will be closed
Leonhart321: Dodging is not bushido obviously
Traion: Okay pyromancy doesn't work. Hit up Rosario and switch to Faith?
Traion: *Rosaria
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Jump over all the holes.
beowuuf: yeah, we don't seem to be getting +1/+1 when we dodge, which is appropriate, as we are neither attacking nor blocking
niccus: is that safe
Didero: It's going to be hilarious if Ben decides to use pyromancy and that turns out to help him beat this boss
Fanklok: What's that DS2 spell that consumes all your souls and does a billionty damage?
Tom_Bruise: so we're still on for not counting the times we die to Kenny G, right?
TXC2: counting deaths isn't a thing we do anymore here
Tom_Bruise: Imean, I've lost count either way
Fanklok: That means its first try
Traion: I'm not particularly interested in counting tries to begin with. The only try that matters is the final one
Didero: Just pulling out all kinds of brightly colored swords now
Didero: green, purple...
Tom_Bruise: oh yeah, totes, get lucky once, that's good enough, but it was a little bit of a thing earlier this stream
Fanklok: I'm curious if this fight has a cheese strat
EkstraLangeDruer: Quick! Take some damage so you don't waste it
Traion: I believe it does @fanklok can't remember what it is though
fragilepaper: Also counting can either be demoralising or can spur you on depending on the type of person you are, I am the demoralising person
accountmadeforants: !sah
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! That appears to be some sort of sidewalk slam.
Didero: We already lost all our sen and we spent our skillpoints, so dying literally doesn't matter
Traion: @fragilepaper I'm weird for me it switches between those two at random
Traion: Dying does let us see more of this cool arena and fight, I call that a win
mitomanox: victory
Leonhart321: We want a burrito
Didero: Wait, he has blood? I thought he was a ghost or something
Leonhart321: @Didero What do you think ectoplasm is?
beowuuf: no, the wish actually brought real isshin back to life in the prime of his life, that's the power of the 'Life' mortal blade?
beowuuf: or am i wrong?
Traion: Pretty sure he is actually Isshin revived @didero
Didero: Huh, useful sword then
Traion: It is a combination of the sword and Kuro's dragon blood as I understand it
MilkInBags: That dude is not a ghost, because ghosts cannot wield guns
theblakdeth: any polearm nerds in chat? Is Isshin using a Naginata, or is that something else?
Didero: Also, Isshin refers to his grandchild when he's reincarnated, does that refer to Kuro or to Genichiro? Or is that spoilers?
Traion: Not a naginata @theblakdeth a naginata is single edged and curved. This is a weird pike variant
TXC2: theblakdeth it's not a naginata
thraximore: that's a thrust attack...?
Didero: Weird pike? We back to carp talk now? :p
Leonhart321: I think it's a Yari
MilkInBags: naginata is like a scimitar on a pole?
subspacenova: He's using a cross-spear
mizzytastic: it's a cross spear, it's probably the same one that General Tamura has in the opening cutscene that Isshin later gifted to GYOUBU MASATAKA ONIWA
TXC2: more of a Flachion on a pole
EkstraLangeDruer: @Didero Genichiro is Isshin's adoptive grandchild. He talks to Wolf about this earlier in the game.
Traion: It is a Yari, but with the crescent moved to only one side
Didero: @Didero Thanks. I'm having some trouble remembering the lore
beowuuf: i'm guessing that cliff means we could cheese this boss somehow if we wanted to rob ourselves of the full fight?
subspacenova: The spear does look more like the chinese dagger-axe pikes though
thraximore: humble request that you use Hidden Tooth to suicide your fights
subspacenova: With how it extends to the side
dragonking714: Would you say this game is easier or harder than Dark Souls Ben?
theblakdeth: Robertoooo can go off a cliff
EkstraLangeDruer: Definately harder
mitomanox: what's the longest it ever took you to defeat a boss?
acuilador subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 69 months, currently on a 69 month streak!
acuilador: ccccombo NICE
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, acuilador! (Today's storm count: 6)
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
Leonhart321: So just going off of the stream, I think the polearm is a Katakama yari from a cursory Wiki. I will defer to more weapon-centric chatsmans
Traion: Dark Souls requires more skill in preparation and making a build. Sekiro requires better mastery of its core mechanics imo
ContingentCat: what does it taste like?
EkstraLangeDruer: The stealth element lets you complete most of this game without honing the skillset needed for bossfights, making them much harder than in Dark Souls
theblakdeth: @Leonhart321 thanks! due to D&D , I know the naming of Euro-centric polearms, but not Japanese ones
accountmadeforants: Leonhart321 That explains it, Isshin heard it as "Katana" and figured it was fine.
Didero: So if it were me I'd get in a vicious cycle of getting frustrated at dying and then dying because I'm frustrated, do you get that too Ben?
EkstraLangeDruer: When I played Sekiro, I basically never fought a single enemy head-on outside of bossfights
theblakdeth: I actually prefer this style. I can't really blind playthough Dark Souls easily- I feel like I need a build help. I'd rather just have passive upgrades and 1 playstyle like this
Traion: Arguing gaming difficulty is a weird and nebulous thing to begin with
MilkInBags: !duh
beowuuf: i heard mortal shell was like a decent dark souls tutorial if dark souls itself wasn't being a good enough tutorial for itself?
Traion: @didero obviously I can't speak for Ben, but anecdotally most Soulslike fans get this state of determination and calm where deaths just happen, there are always more souls so who cares about loosing them, etc
Tom_Bruise: there's not really any other "build" to try in this game
beowuuf: wasn't it alex who said that it was either minecraft that helped with dark souls, or dark souls that helped with minecraft, that when you lose your items / souls to a death, you learn a healthy letting go mentality and move on
TXC2: shit beating Gael in a new game when you've already beaten the game before still feels good
theblakdeth: i don't know if it's spoilers to talk about the NG+ progression in this game, so I'll just stay quiet
Traion: I actually think this game is better for NG+ runs. But worse for additional new playthroughs
beowuuf: i like the comment when you and cameron spoke, about difficulty where you just need to get your head down iand grind through something s different from where you actually have to figure out something or get better
mitomanox: do not hate the player
ElfLawyer: wait, you can equip pocket sand?
Traion: Ben would you mind letting the cutscenes play once more after the next break just so late comers can get caught up?
ElfLawyer: hot diggety
beowuuf: victory is inevitable :p
Didero: It's not hard to find these cutscenes on Youtube or something, I imagine
Didero: Or even watch yesterday's VOD
TehAmelie: if someon gets bored i expect they'll assemble a supercut of the story parts out of Ben's playthrough from the youtubes
Traion: Phase 2 Isshin really seems to enjoy himself
MuadDab: does that samurai have a gun?
TXC2: MuadDab sure does
Traion: He has a multiple shot gun even
beowuuf: is it because you're a worthy opponent, or because he's actually proud of Sekiro's skills?
Leonhart321: I mean, he just came back from the dead, he has all his skill and power and an immortal to test them on. Wouldn't you be?
EkstraLangeDruer: Hesitation is defeat, Benjamin.
thraximore: On all levels except physical, I have beaten stage 2
pyrojakk: I remember when I did this boss, stage 2 is a nightmare
EkstraLangeDruer: For stage 3, he jumps in to a tank
Didero: Helicopter fight?
pyrojakk: oh hell yeah I made it here before ben saw stage 3
pyrojakk: yeeees
Leonhart321: Stage 3, he becomes a sword
Didero: Spins his spear around real fast, flies off
Traion: Stage 3 is an aircraft carrier group with naval bombardment obviously
EkstraLangeDruer: It's underwater and he's riding the giant carp
YeetTheRich_: did you just goomba stomp him?
pyrojakk: in stage 3, he fulfills his need to become an attack helicopter
Didero: There's still the Spiritfall things, right?
Traion: Stage 3 he drops the pretense of the sword and just pulls out a gatling gun
Tom_Bruise: Phase 3 will have Isshin combine his dark beam and light beam into the Annihilator Beam
Didero: is hat a bulging coin purse in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
EkstraLangeDruer: And when he dies, he summons Owl. When you kill Owl, he summons the giant monkey
Traion: @didero Ben is using his spirit emblems for Sabimaru. I assume he doesn't want to spend them on Spiritfalls too
Didero: @Traion That makes sense
Traion: @ekstralangedruer But the monkey now has Wheeler's face
mitomanox: dat's life
Didero: Wow, he just kept playing while you were in the menu, that's just rude
Traion: Didn't hear a Hey Chat
EkstraLangeDruer: @Traion The game secretly takes a pic of the player's face if it can find a webcam
mitomanox: i wanna thank the non-existing god for BS-free people like wheeler streaming on a Sunday
beowuuf: clearly stage 3 is him combining the two halves of the mortal blade to open the door to castle greyskull, as i still say should happen
Traion: @mitomanox the god responsible for this is Divine Jimothy Turner. God of scheduling Kappa
Tom_Bruise: "I am a wizard! Observe!" *dies*
beowuuf: it could and did but that doesn't mean it should :p
mitomanox: @Traion gods among us they say <3
TXC2: the Gods playing among us would be a wild stream
beowuuf: zeus is suspect for all his weird sex stuff anyway...
mitomanox: @TXC2 that's more wordplay I can take at this time of day, but I'll take it anyway <3
fragilepaper: very sus
Traion: Yes please @txc2 I want to see Norse or Mediterranean Pantheons play Among Us now
fragilepaper: It would deffo be Loki's idea to play
Traion: Hermes could rock an imposter game
Didero: That went perfectly until it didn't
Leonhart321: @Traion Isn't that just Record of Ragnarok?
Traion: Wait that is a thing? @leonhart321
Traion: Time to bring out the big guns: Call in Mulder for help
TXC2: now that I think about it more, Gods playing among us is the just Stargate SG1 :p
Leonhart321: It's an anime. Gods vs Famous humans in a 1v1 deathmatch
beowuuf: headcanon accepted
accountmadeforants: Do not bring out the big guns, Isshin might do the same.
Traion: I wanna see Isshin's pet Shiba! @accountmadeforants
Kiloken subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 26 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Kiloken! (Today's storm count: 7)
Leonhart321: Smooth
Traion: Well done Phase 1
pyrojakk: "The sword saint". Actually kills you with a spear and a gun.
pyrojakk: Anything's a sword if you believe hard enough!
beowuuf: @pyrojakk all's fair in love and war
mitomanox: @pyrojakk i know right? this person needs to reevaluate priorities
MilkInBags: rlyBLAP
mitomanox: gotta go now, have an amazing day everyone!
pyrojakk: It's like that one Fist of the North Star meme. "You call shooting someone a martial art?" "Hey, as long as it works."
beowuuf: magically from nowhere!
mitomanox: enjoy sunday, wheeler!
TXC2: so long mitomanox stay safe
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!
Traion: Weird how ads give you divine confetti. Strange Twitch Integration
beowuuf: sergeHi bye
Didero: Twitch Plays Sekiro
mitomanox: lrrSHINE
Leonhart321: "Welcome to Is This Your Card where today, we'll be examining just how hidden away the card game of Sekiro is by first beating the boss that unlocks it"
beowuuf: ben actually has one more go at the boss and beats then...
beowuuf: look, witcher has gwent, clearly serkiro must have something similar. let's go look
Tom_Bruise: We still have to see how he deals with phase 3, where Isshin will turn into Godzilla With A Sword
TehAmelie: just thinking of the hilarious time i beat MGS3. every attempt against the final boss i got a little bit more of her health bar. it was such steady progress i could tell 4 hours in advance when i'd be able to win
pyrojakk: Phase 3, where boys become men and Sekiro becomes paste on the floor.
beowuuf: is godzilla sad and reluctant, like sif after the dlc?
TehAmelie: this a little more lively
Leonhart321: With all the spinning, surely Gamera is a more apt Kaiju?
Tom_Bruise: he'll probably be like Bio-Quartz SuperGodzilla or whatever
beowuuf: oh no. is stage 3 caillou? seabatUseless
Tom_Bruise: *SpaceGodzilla, that's it, now I won't look as stupid
Traion: I have faith that Ben can beat up a kid that's four @beowuuf
beowuuf: :D
TehAmelie: in hindsight i should have tried using guns more before resorting to fisticuffs
Didero: But each day he grows some more, and the show's been airing since 1997...
beowuuf: @TehAmelie mgs seems to like the epic fisticuffs ending though
Traion: Uhm actually it's CQC @tehamelie Kappa
TXC2: huh, I like that Serge is gonna stream 15 hours after streaming :p
beowuuf: @Didero dear lord! this 44ft 4 year old will kill us all!
TehAmelie: how could i forget
beowuuf: @TXC2 wait, what?
Didero: @Didero He's got the Clifford Curse!
TXC2: beowuuf he's doing the next PiF
beowuuf: @TXC2 aaaaaah
Didero: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out https://loadingreadyrun.com/live for an interactive schedule, or http://lrr.cc/schedule for a Google Calendar version.
TXC2: and we're back
Tom_Bruise: @beowuuf you have nothing to fear; the Apocailloulypse won't happen until 2144
Traion: @txc2 what is Serge's PiF?
Robot_Bones: Deathbound
IncredibleFrown: is there a renewable way to get dragon blood drops these days?
Didero: Serge is playing Ghostrunner
TXC2: also we don't need to worry about the Giant baby, it attacks Las Vegas, but then Rick Moranis saves the day
Robot_Bones: oh shoot don't know where I got that from
Traion: Please Adam would never attack Vegas @txc2 Kappa
ZackTheCatKing: Hey Ben, just popped in to send positivity to you, the family, and the fur babies. Hope your having a good stream
TXC2: :d
TXC2: * :D
Didero: That was a great phase 1!
TXC2: turns out we were on a ritz instead
IncredibleFrown: this fight's so cool
matthaus_c: been such a long time since I've been able to catch this! go ham, wheels benginLove
TXC2: hello matthaus_c welcome
Traion: Phase 3!
Leonhart321: And here....we.....go
beowuuf: woohoo
TXC2: PHASE 3 BABY!
matthaus_c: thanks txc <3
beowuuf: lightning strikes had been called
pyrojakk: Cmon ben
Carlioo: phase 3 seems shocking
pyrojakk: Victory lap
beowuuf: just not isshin doing them
beowuuf: definitely makes the fight feel epic
matthaus_c: tomoe be like isshin that's my thing
beowuuf: wowo, ok, nm, he just deflects lightning in to your face, good move
TXC2: so now he's Lightning saint right? :p
CaptainSpam: Isshin, The Increasingly Ill-Defined Saint
beowuuf: @TXC2 no, *now* he admits to being gun saint to distract you from the lightning :p
Leonhart321: Isshin, Saint of Many Things, Swords, Lighting, Surprise, Comfy Chairs
CaptainSpam: Is it just me, or has the stream's volume been really low?
Alness49: Saints can do more then one thing (and frequently do)
Didero: All our fanciful ideas makes the actual phase 3 feel vaguely boring :p
IncredibleFrown: what is a gun but a sword launcher
TXC2: CaptainSpam it has yes
pyrojakk: He does do the stabbo
matthaus_c: Isshin, Saint of DIE-KEA
Didero: So close! You can do this!
Carlioo: getting close!
pyrojakk: You can absolutely do it Ben
beowuuf: yeah, isshin blames the small hit box area for not being able to fit in his full name :p
matthaus_c: go wheels!
pyrojakk: We believe in you
CaptainSpam: You got this, Ben.
beowuuf: you called it :)
Leonhart321: But now you know you can get there. Now we know HE BLEEEEEEDS
CaptainSpam: Well, poop.
beowuuf: who's this new boss? MiniK
matthaus_c: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
pyrojakk: Ben mulliganned, it's okay we'll draw a better hand now
Didero: Oh yeah, even the loading screen tips call him Wolf instead of Sekiro
pyrojakk: HYPE!
Traion: @didero which also fits with all the other Shinobi names in this: Owl, Butterfly, Orangutan
LonelyTex: wheelerMonkey wheelerMonkey wheelerMonkey
matthaus_c: ook ook
Didero: @Traion So Ishinn's the boring one for not picking an animal name
matthaus_c: Tengu counts as an animal name lrrBEEJ
accountmadeforants: Isshin's shinobi name was Orangutan
Traion: He is a samurai so he gets a normal name @didero LUL
Traion: @accountmadeforants it was not
Didero: That first phase is starting to look almost trivial :O
accountmadeforants: Oh, huh
Didero: Can you jump over that spear sweep?
matthaus_c: more like yeetsshin
Didero: Just never panic, easy Kappa
Tom_Bruise: that's always the worst part for me; getting stage 3, and then discovering *new* things about state 2
CaptainSpam: Hang on, that's not even a sword he's swinging around. This saint is a fraud!
beowuuf: as james says, 'do what you gotta do'
Traion: Isshin has a move list as long as Questing Beast's text
beowuuf: isshin has reach???
matthaus_c: beautiful
Traion: Gun gives reach Kappa
Leonhart321: Isshin has all keywords
TXC2: Reach ironically being one of the thing questing beast doesn't have
matthaus_c: wait questing beast DOESN'T have reach??!
TXC2: also Questing Beast did nothing wrong
Traion: @txc2 have you checked recently? It could've gotten Reach when no one was looking
beowuuf: @TXC2 yeah, but i wanted to make the dual joke so just chanced my arm that maybe it had secret reach too :p
matthaus_c: it does have secret double strike and trample and "Questing Beasts you control have +1/+1" :p
beowuuf: wotc hates functionakl errata, except on questing beast cause who would notice, and cryptic command because you may as well add anything you like anyway :p
Traion: @beowuuf The joke worked even better because I instantly believed you that QB has reach and I'd forgotten LUL
beowuuf: @Traion lol
Traion: Phase 1 is a formality now
fragilepaper: ^
beowuuf: now would be the time for isshin to say "overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer"
Leonhart321: @beowuuf You mean like how hesitation is defeat?
Traion: I want Isshin to do that spear jump and yell "HURBIS" now
beowuuf: @beowuuf yeah, it's a tricky balance :p
Saxpython: woah
Didero: and a jump to the left
TXC2: we're getting there
matthaus_c: and then the pelvic thrust
Traion: You have got this fight down now
EkstraLangeDruer: No promises
Didero: Who knows, maybe Isshin ends up slicing his own neck, and who knows what comes out then
beowuuf: this fight just turns in to that scene in airplane!
Didero: You ran out of posture
matthaus_c: wonder if we can find the bones of our arm here...
pyrojakk: @Didero A capra demon.
Traion: @didero Isshin has a Genichiro inside him and that starts the loop over
Didero: I don't entirely understand what the game is even loading, since you just reappear in the area you were in anyway
beowuuf: isshin's wish is wishing Genichiro was getting his arse handed to him instead of Isshin
pyrojakk: @beowuuf It's not really the same area technically... the cutscene puts you in a different area
Traion: I think it is loading Ashina Castle each time. And then unloading it in the tunnel
matthaus_c: "child, get your arse kicked for dad"
pyrojakk: The boss arena is a different map, so it has to reload ashina reservoir
Didero: That's slightly dumb world design then, since they must know that every player is going to have to redo this fight a bunch of times
Didero: Not everybody can be like Ben and get it first try :p
Mahtamori: There's probably a lot of cleaning of states going on to prevent weird stuff from happening
pyrojakk: The cutscene is the culprit, in a way. To be fair, it is the last boss...
matthaus_c: we'd have to pick a few brains to know why they made this choice, I don't think it should be written off as dumb
Didero: Yeah, I should remember game development is hard, they probably had their reasons
Mahtamori: Lance McDonald might know the answer :D

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Rhythm Cafe (Heather and Ian continue their never-ending quest to play ALL THE RHYTHM GAMES! Game: Samba de Amigo 2000) at Sun 04:00 PM PDT (3:24 from now).
Traion: @didero yeah but also if they don't lock this off like this you could potentially do loads of cheese and also how would they allow you to go back and grind confetti :p
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Listen to Friend Computer.
Earthenone: !findquote friend
LRRbot: Quote #5824: "If Serge calls you "friend," that doesn't mean he doesn't have a crossbow pointed at you." —Paul [2019-02-13]
Didero: @Traion It's only a small area, so load it along with Ashina castle and keep that in memory, unload this area when you walk away from the tunnel?
matthaus_c: damn, the artorias slam
beowuuf: also having to pause even for a moment just let's you calm down again, rather than just constantly bash your head against a wall and have the fight lose all meaning? not the primary reason, but maybe the reason they didn't 'fix' it
matthaus_c: it could also be as simple as "if we let you respawn in the area the world went invisible and we couldn't fix it" :p
Didero: Or maybe they did it so they could show you gameplay hints :p
beowuuf: but players don't necessarily do what's best for themsevles and would jump the cutscene? who know,s be interesting if they every comment on things like this
beowuuf: *ever
Didero: That was a good flop by Sekiro, 9.7 from the judges
beowuuf: true
Traion: It could also be that they had to do it this way because of technical limitations on consoles. I assume there is a reason for it but it isn't the greatest feeling for the player
beowuuf: Genichiro, i know you're really invested in your plan, and i know you think this epic music is for you but...seriously, did you see how many dots you have? it's... it's just one, dude. It's... it's just one.
Leonhart321: At least the game only gives you a health penalty for falling and not an auto lose
Leonhart321: Fair
Traion: *Holds up a mirror to Genichiro* "What only one dot?!" *Genichiro runs away crying*
Tom_Bruise: you say Genichiro runs away, but little does ol' Sekiro know, he's planning on coming back after getting his dad involved
Didero: Sekiro killed his own dad, he won't have a problem killing other people's dads
Tom_Bruise: oh Sekiro will kill any dad, but mean old man Mister Isshin is the meanest old man on the block
CaptainSpam: Look, he's the SWORD saint, not the SPRINTING saint.
Traion: Isshin is the meanest grandpa in Ashina Heights Retirement Home
Tom_Bruise: I think he's actively keeping his distance to say "Yeah man, you gonna fall back, I'm just gonna regen my poise"
beowuuf: "run over there? but i just got my haughty stance *just* right..."
IzlanntheLion: whats up wheel master
TXC2: hello IzlanntheLion welcome
beowuuf: end boss fun times
beowuuf: we can get them to phase 3, we're getting close
IzlanntheLion: fun
Tom_Bruise: oof, shot in the back
Traion: You said "do anything"
Tom_Bruise: that's not all that honourable is it?
beowuuf: the secret to coTIMING
beowuuf: @Tom_Bruise lied about the sword, may as well be lying about the saint part. Plus saint seems like a mis-translation anyway, so really this is all localisation's fault :p
Didero: Wait, do these bosses get to fill in their own name labels? Maybe Ishinn actually thinks he's a saint
matthaus_c: yeah the literal translation from the original is Isshin, Gamer God lrrBEEJ
CaptainSpam: Isshin, Who Is Really Just A Huge Jerk
Tom_Bruise: I too think Isshin, the "Sword" "Saint" can learn a thing or two from the art of frontstabbing
Traion: I just checked his Japanese name is Kensei Ashina Isshin, so it is a translation thing
Tom_Bruise: none of this backstabbing or frontshooting, and certainly *no* backshooting
beowuuf: trying to look up the name i just saw a fight 'spoiler' that i'll mention after the battle cause it's just a cute detail i haven't noticed in this fight
matthaus_c: try pyromancy
Traion: Be aggressively patient?
GwalchmaiOfHouseParadox: !badadvice
LRRbot: Use the elephant gun.
Traion: @beowuuf can you whisper it to me?

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Rhythm Cafe (Heather and Ian continue their never-ending quest to play ALL THE RHYTHM GAMES! Game: Samba de Amigo 2000) at Sun 04:00 PM PDT (3:05 from now).
Didero: Eh, you can go a bit late :p
Didero: If you want to, at least
Traion: This is like a 10 minute fight total
Traion: Which is an eternity
beowuuf: @Traion don
Traion: ty
TXC2: get a job you like Genchiro
Tom_Bruise: what if, at some point, Genichiro just stopped spawning, like a Dark Souls 2 mob
Tom_Bruise: you couldn't grind for his fancy sword anymore, but at least he won't be there
Traion: I still say Genichiro makes this fight better
beowuuf: I mean some DS boss runs have you running across half the level again, so comapred that that ... :p
Traion: Atorias, through the fucking elevator each time @beowuuf
beowuuf: i'd like to think that, if asked about choices like that in game design, the answer would just be five minutes of maniacal cackling
TXC2: Traion I see your Atorias and raise you bed of chaos Kappa
Traion: @txc2 I mean yes, but for that one they said the whole fight was a mistake :p
TXC2: Traion true
beowuuf: o7
beowuuf: wow, with all the rain during our fight, you'd think the fires would be out by now?
accountmadeforants: Confetti first, THEN banana
Traion: The flamethrower guys really love their job @beowuuf
beowuuf: PrideRise then wheelerBanana
beowuuf: @Traion maybe Genichiro should join them :p
accountmadeforants: Consider how Ben would spend a ton of spirit emblems just using the flame vent around idols. It's understandable.
beowuuf: three real tries
Didero: Did that also give us enough skill points for a new skill?
beowuuf: i mean your previous monday spot is still blank, right? :p
spleenlord subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 60 months!

accountmadeforants: "Shouldn't have sold your only Dragon Tear if you're gonna cry about a little dragonrot, my dude."
beowuuf: @accountmadeforants lrrWOW
beowuuf: Genichiro, in the Way of Isshin
accountmadeforants: Sub in Tomoe proper, this guy sucks! (I have no idea if she's still alive in canon. If not, Genichiro's a big boy, he can summon *two* legendary warriors back from the dead, right? Just gotta trade in his first phase!)
Pengu92: Clean phase 1!
Traion: I wish we'd gotten some DLC about Tomoe, she seems cool from the bit that we know about her
MrOrderlyChaos: @Traion I wish we'd gotten any DLC at all
accountmadeforants: Considering Isshin was all "haha, she could've definitely killed me, good times", I was definitely hoping for a real appearance, yeah.
Fanklok: So whoi's this Isshin person?
fragilepaper: Its very odd you referencing Tomoe, cause as a fountain pen user, I enjoy using Tomoe river paper
accountmadeforants: Maybe when we get Sekiro 2: Way of the 2moe
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
accountmadeforants: Fanklok Greatest warrior in the region, to the point where just him being alive was holding people back from starting a war. Then he died of old age. Now he's back in his prime through the power of a magic sword!
Tom_Bruise: Kenny G sure is *not* keepin' things saxy rn
Traion: @fanklok the daimyo of Ashina. A legendary swordsman in his younger days that conquered this land. He died of old age like an hour ago in game and his grandson has summoned him back in his prime
TehAmelie: i think he's just there to make sure you're awake
EkstraLangeDruer: He's there to punish the complacent
Traion: Do you have Ungo sugar left? To use instead of confetti?
accountmadeforants: Isshin really nipping those "Give X a gun!" memes in the bud
mowdownjoe: Phase 3?
Tom_Bruise: give Isshin's gun a gun
Tom_Bruise: make Isshin's gun shoot smaller guns that shoot lightning bullets
TXC2: it's no Painkiller gun
accountmadeforants: "yes gun" -Isshin
TXC2: uno mas
Didero: We believe in you, Ben!
jolberfernandez: no hit?
Traion: You could gra rice from the Child to get that extra bit of healing
Nanomateria: Hey uhm, are we killing him because he is not being very saint of swords?
beowuuf: this is the one
wulfram77: Has anyone told that guy he's not called "Gun Saint"?
Pengu92: "You said no gun? I thought you said more gun"
accountmadeforants: We're killing him because he's killing us, because that's what his grandson wished for. Sekiro and him are normally cool.
Tom_Bruise: As the Ashina Samurai Code stipulates; "Fuck You, Won't Do What You Tell Me!"
Didero: Genichiro deaths don't count
matthaus_c: false start
accountmadeforants: That's dying to fire arrow guy before Lady Butterfly
accountmadeforants: Also, that rhymes :D
matthaus_c: johnny cheerio you little pisser
Tom_Bruise: Kenny G, just fuck off already
Traion: Pig, Papa needs your help against this shitty grandson
Traion: Poor Piggy in her shame cone
Leonhart321: Not The Cone of Shame
Tom_Bruise: that's the cone of dentistry, you should know
Didero: I only just noticed this dude is like a head taller than Sekiro
AlucardMarkov: Is there any specific style or ability that is best at breaking posture? Gonna look into that when I will buy the game
Traion: Pig we know your threats don't have teeth anymore so stop whining Kappa
accountmadeforants: Sekiro's pretty short overall, did not inherit Owl's genes when he adopted him
beowuuf: not like this...
TXC2: poo butts
accountmadeforants: Sekiro: "Put me back in coach!"
beowuuf: light the fall signal
MilkInBags: he's menacingly walking
accountmadeforants: Pressing a button on your keyboard?
matthaus_c: good old papa miyazaki
Leonhart321: Well........that's a sign
Traion: controller loose I assume
Didero: Time to learn how to play this game with mouse and keyboard!
matthaus_c: beat the fight on M+K lrrBEEJ
