MAPBoardgames: She has 3 chairs, you have 0
LunarJade: I put off going offline just so I could raid you. That's how much I like you Wheeler. <3
Traion: All chairs are Mulder's. All beds are Pig's
KeytarCat: Bonus stream watermark in the center?
Diabore: ya i was gonna say
Traion: Attack Power 4? You skipped everything possible on that one

4 raiders from Weslyphon have joined!

karterstrophic: hello!
MAPBoardgames: @karterstrophic Hi!
Traion: Hi raiders!
karterstrophic: it's very late here so I can't hang around, but have a good stream!
thraximore: Shura ending I assume?
Diabore: owl ate his wheaties
MAPBoardgames: They say when owl was a lad he ate 4 dozen eggs every morning.
Diabore: that kid can suck eggs
Traion: The Iron Code has 2 rules: 1. Obey Dad 2. Obey Master in that order
crono3453: The Iron Code: Dads before lads
thraximore: This fight is GOOOOOD
thraximore: pictured: COVID patients
Traion: Girl is fast
mizzytastic: @Traion 3. Always get revenge - you only hear it by using a jizo statue for a 2nd resurrection in owl fight
Traion: Does he have a machine-gun in this fight is the big question LUL
charli3_r: dark soul roll time
thraximore: Guess I need to start calling you "Old Habits"
thraximore: He's got FOOTSIES
TheThirdTail: Oooh, more Sekiro. I missed the beginning - are you just doing this ending, or do you plan to do the optional fights you missed on the other path?
SacrificialToast: at least Emma is cooler than Genichiro
dumpsterfire: Old Habits die twice
thraximore: @SacrificialToast Ifinitely cooler
thraximore: infinitely*
Traion: The other idol has a miniboss in the way
SacrificialToast: the fun thing is to backstab and puppet him
thraximore: you're asking us :D
Kyir: If you have that one ninjistu, you can also puppet! VoHiYo
Kyir: Though I'm not sure how much it really helps
thraximore: @Kyir My MO for this fight
Kyir: I feel like the guy just gets in my way, but it feels so fun!
thraximore: Wallace? Is that you?
charli3_r: is this game Japanese dark souls?
thraximore: Yes
charli3_r: makes sense
KeytarCat: @charli3_r I meeeean
Kyir: Emma will mess you up once you feel like you know the fight
Traion: I mean Dark Souls is Japanese Dark Souls too
thraximore: I love Emma's fight
Seth_Erickson: Emma's fights a real toughy
charli3_r: they can both be jamapese dark souls
Traion: @charli3_r also this is from the DS dev. It was their first project post Dark Souls trilogy
thraximore: I was genuinely surprised you killed her without dying even once the first time
Seth_Erickson: I think the idea they meant is setting wise this is very similar to like old Japan
charli3_r: makes sense
mizzytastic: I love how she has some moves that Isshin does because presumably he taught her
Traion: This is literally set in Sengoku Era Japan @seth_erickson
TheThirdTail: Damn, that's such a concise way to explain it.
Seth_Erickson: @Traion so japanese dark souls Kappa
thraximore: get 'em, gurl
BrowneePoints: @Seth_Erickson I know you're being sarcastic but that is a lil disingenuous and culturally disrespectful
Kyir: I'm so curious what Wheeler keeps trying to say before the game interrupts
charli3_r: doin great ben
Kyir: The tension is killing me
thraximore: Thinking too much gets you killed :)
Traion: Also can we appreciate that they made 2 battle themes and 2 additional sets of animation and fights for an ending that maybe like 10% of people will actually do
BrowneePoints: The combat arts are SO fun
Seth_Erickson: alright that's fair BrowneePoints text loses a lot along the way
SacrificialToast: yeah, there are some really good combat arts
incredulouspasserby: You know for a stream called "endings" where I haven't seen the entire rest of the game, I don't know why I expected to know what the hell is going on today
SacrificialToast: I'm a fan of High Monk from the Senpuu book
BrowneePoints: I do hope on some playthrough you do a run with the Iron Fortress prosthetic. It's a blast to play with
Traion: Ichimonji is my preferred art
Kyir: Love Ichimonji
charli3_r: roll
BrowneePoints: @Traion what's the super fancy one, not Ashina Cross but the super flowy one
charli3_r: roll ben roll
MagicalAttackGecko: get command grabbed son
thraximore: ??? she gave you that one lmao
thraximore: didn't even swing
Seth_Erickson: Yuka Kitamura is such a good composer
SacrificialToast: High Monk is just a nice combo string and also works as a sweep counter
Traion: @browneepoints I see the animation in my head but can't for the life of me remember the name
thraximore: boy that does a lot of damage
Hewdra: Old man take a look at my sword
BrowneePoints: @Traion that's my fave art though, it's not easy to use but if you figure out the timing you just DELETE health bars
BrowneePoints: ooo heckin Iaijutsu here
thraximore: every time you try to heal :D
Agu_Sakku: LOL had BB guns fire off ( World of Warships ) while those first two swings are blocked!
Kyir: Pretty sure, yeah
BrowneePoints: I think he might have the Genichiro AI yea
thraximore: get ANNIHILATED
Kyir: That sidestep gets me
Kyir: Every time
Seth_Erickson: Looks like you're the one getting downloaded here Kappa
charli3_r: get absolutely destroyed
SacrificialToast: man, imagine someone just dodging your sword
BrowneePoints: Question Ben, did you ever see that Black Myth: Wukong tech demo?
charli3_r: melted
incredulouspasserby: Wheeler can you explain everything that happened up until this point so I can understand wtf is going on
incredulouspasserby: just, everything
thraximore: Wait, he's just like you: he refuses to parry!
thraximore: You don't need to parry if you just move out of the way
Kyir: I like that Sword Saint Isshin is sort of big and bombastic since he's coming back to life in his prime and this version is a bit more restrained
incredulouspasserby: No
Solid_Fuel: no
incredulouspasserby: yes
GhostValv: oofa
thraximore: uh have you heard of Earth
SnackPak_: lrrWOW
BrowneePoints: What about "Sunrise Laaaaand"
MAPBoardgames: Isn't that the bird with the big beak?
charli3_r: what?
incredulouspasserby: ehh sorta
Robot_Bones: First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil.
GhostValv: o/
charli3_r: no
Kyir: I do if they're made of chocolate
BrowneePoints: dangit Wheeler now History of Japan, I guess is stuck in my head now
Seth_Erickson: o/
thraximore: @Robot_Bones Wow I wish I learned this in school
Traion: Volcanoes are these things with baking soda right?
Seth_Erickson: Dad also an owl unclear
BrowneePoints: Dad is named Owl, we are named Wolf
aamedor: Too late this is an all Tom hanks stream now
thraximore: she didn't even flinch, amazing
BrowneePoints: and Isshin Ashina is basically a Nobunaga analog but less guns more being an actual badass
CAKHost: Also, you have to fight old man no matter what choice so really your choices don't matter in the end :P
SacrificialToast: That's the Mikiri Nope
CanPlayGames: Do you think Tom Hanks ever Rolled Up the Rim at Tim Hortons?
aamedor: How does this situation relate to BIG?
thraximore: she's doing the Isshin
mizzytastic: @CAKHost except in one he's young and born out of his adoptive grandson's gaping neckwound ... yknow, like a normal family
Robot_Bones: Ah what's up doc?
Seth_Erickson: Loved the second mortal blade rebirth my grandpa twist so great
Kyir: Hey, who doesn't hate him, am I right?
CAKHost: @CAKHost Of course! :D
Robot_Bones: He hated Playstation classic Brave Fencer Musashi?
Traion: So for a serious super barebones summary: Our Lord is Kuro a 10 year old boy who has the Dragon's Heritage which allows him to make people immortal. He made us immortal. He thinks the power is corrupting people and wants to get rid of it. We agree to help. When we gather all we need to do it, the Castle gets attacked. At the top we find our dad who we saw die 3 years ago. He asks us to betray Master, for this ending we said yes and are now killing our former allies

thraximore: Hey it works
Seth_Erickson: The twofer
Kyir: I think she's also killing you
SacrificialToast: *your doctor is killing you
mizzytastic: to be fair the castle gate was only guarded by a massive pair of lungs
dumpsterfire: who would've predicted that Emma is a grappler?
Uzumaki15: We couldn't get past a gate... one thing lead to another and now we're killing our doctor and some old guy.
Haroldholmes25: what happened to medical professionals swearing to do no harm
Traion: If your doctor is wielding sharp implements at you: hold still they are trying to help Kappa
thraximore: brutal
Seth_Erickson: god combat feel so good in this game even just watching it feels good
aamedor: I think pulling a katana on you might be grounds to sue for malpractice
Kyir: It's just a big scalpel
thraximore: You've gotta anticipate the dodge
incredulouspasserby: if you think about it a katana is just a really sharp scalpel
Traion: @aamedor but cutting you open with a scalpel takes sooooo long Kappa
thraximore: Have you tried pyromancy? The arena is already on fire
BrowneePoints: Okay I looked it up Wheeler, apparently Isshin is a conglomeration of Tomonori Kitabatake, Masamune Date, and Moriuji Ashina. And the "Ministry" is a reference to Oda
SacrificialToast: I kind of found this version harder than the regular final boss

BrowneePoints: His moves also have a weirder cadence than Sword Saint
BrowneePoints: Like Emma they both have slow startups and quick ending animations and it's a PAIN
incredulouspasserby: wait she's the doctor? I thought the old dude was the doctor
thraximore: @incredulouspasserby nope other way around
SacrificialToast: nah, the old guy is her terminal patient
Seth_Erickson: Emma is the doctor she helps cure Rot Disease PogChamp
incredulouspasserby: oh so can't we just wait for him to die then
Robot_Bones: More Kindom Hearts
Traion: This can't be harder than Sword Saint. It doesn't have Genichiro the hardest boss in the game, he has the ultimate move of making you try to rush past him
Seth_Erickson: Dragon Rot that's what it's called
matthaus_c: I liked that. it was #relatable
aamedor: She just wants to take your temperature with he sword
thraximore: he's learning
Seth_Erickson: Also damn is Isshin tall
BrowneePoints: @Traion I don't think he's harder than Sword Saint, but his cadence is SO much harder to get used to in this version
Juliamon: He tried pyromancy!
Traion: I was joking @browneepoints ;)
Kyir: Demon of Hatred is the sculptor VoHiYo
thraximore: He ain't fucking around now
Kyir: Noses are dangerous
BrowneePoints: Oh no, the dreaded nose scratch
matthaus_c: the nose is mightier than the sword
BrowneePoints: oh yea can't we learn that death ball slash too?
NUTSOFODEN: old man coming in here with an anime moveset
BrowneePoints: (it's been quite a while since I played this)
thraximore: I like how this version of the fight really demonstrates the more esoteric techniques Isshin has learned throughout his life
Juliamon: This fight is anime as hell
matthaus_c: he was cooler before dying
BrowneePoints: @thraximore it's cuz his body is dying, so he's using every trick he can to make up for Wolf's MUCH stronger body
thraximore: @BrowneePoints Exactly
mizzytastic: @BrowneePoints it's the reward for this ending
Traion: Now that I think about it Sekiro is definitely super short. He is a medieval war orphan, he probably didn't grow for like 4 years as a kid
matthaus_c: also Owl can't have been a very responsible dad
BrowneePoints: and yea wheeler Isshin's sword style is based on 4 historical swordsmen, one of which is Musashi LUL
SacrificialToast: man, maybe I didn't use enough prosthetics, don't think I ever ran out of spirit emblems
thraximore: The regular final fight against him is a battle of endurance, Sekiro and Isshin throwing themselves at each other at their respective peaks
Seth_Erickson: Yeah he a small guy and that's ok
thraximore: This fight is more cunning, shrewd in its execution

Traion: War tends to drive up prices Ben
matthaus_c: isshin got cheeks
BrowneePoints: The fans do some bullshit. They're cool
Seth_Erickson: The fans are largely unuseful in boss fights I think
Kyir: Demon of Hatred is so annoying without the whistle
matthaus_c: think of prosthetics as eggs you can crack for mana and value
BrowneePoints: @Seth_Erickson some of the upgrades make them useful in bossfights
klooswep: D:
Seth_Erickson: That's reasonable I didn't do much of the upgrading
matthaus_c: old man's got hands
thraximore: The only times I ever used the fans was the Lazuli version that protects against Terror, for the Apparations
BrowneePoints: @Seth_Erickson Iron Fortress and Fans are the two that get the most out of upgrades besides the spear
Kyir: I think you died
dumpsterfire: twice, even
Traion: I found the umbrella better for that @thraximore
mizzytastic: I used the appropriate fan in this fight actually
thraximore: @Traion Oh that's what I meant
BrowneePoints: Like, the fully upgraded fans/fortress do some actual BS
Seth_Erickson: I used the Fans primarily for helping the big guy who wants the pinwheel
mizzytastic: *umbrella I mean
Traion: Don't put your failure on Piglet. She is perfect!
BrowneePoints: The upgrades for the shield turn it into an offensive weapon as well Ben, and it's HILARIOUS
BrowneePoints: oh yea, cuz half her kit is also Isshin's
thraximore: You might be able to put that down to Emma being cool and Genichibro being a chump :D
SacrificialToast: Genichiro's too similar to when you fought him half a game ago
BrowneePoints: @SacrificialToast I think that's on purpose to give you a bit of a break before Sword Saint whoops your ass
Traion: It helps that Emma is a badass and Genichiro is a whiny dweeb
thraximore: @Traion My feelings exacly.
thraximore: Now THIS fight feels like a Dark Souls fight
BrowneePoints: we just got Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru'd
thraximore: This phase especially
Traion: God this fight is cool
CAKHost: This guy is more impressive alive O.O
dpj2009: is that a Kamigawa spirit?
CAKHost: (before the whole revival thingie)
BrowneePoints: @CAKHost we talked about it. It's cuz he's pulling out all the stops cuz he knows Sekiro is in his prime and he is dying
BrowneePoints: @CAKHost stops being tricks/techniques
BrowneePoints: whereas Sword Saint is two swordsmen in their prime hurling each other full force
Traion: That Ninja we are running past must be thinking we are making fun of him

Traion: Sword Saint is exuberant in his strength and enjoys the fight for the fight's sake. This Isshin fights out of necessity and to contain a grave danger to the world, he is desperate
Seth_Erickson: I am a big fan of sheathing your sword before doing a big finishing sword attack
thraximore: @Traion Have I mentioned this game is fucking awesome
BrowneePoints: @Seth_Erickson Iaijutsu
Traion: @thraximore you didn't need to :p
thraximore: @Traion yet it bears repeating :D
Seth_Erickson: oh cool learned something new PogChamp
Traion: Ben this fight is so cool we don't mind watching it for 3 hours
Seth_Erickson: he hasn't done the true ending right? that one takes a bit of time
BrowneePoints: Yea, the Japanese quickdraw Technique is either Iaijutsu or Iaido depending on usage etc subtle differences
Traion: Okay I need to head to bed. See the you fine folks in the VoD
charli3_r: is stream over?
Juliamon: break time
BrowneePoints: @Seth_Erickson Basically Iaijutsu is intrinsically tied to a martial art, Iaido is spiritual and not intrinsically tied to combat
charli3_r: ah
Seth_Erickson: ah ok interesting
thraximore: audio just died?
thraximore: odd
thraximore: it's back
charli3_r: fight
charli3_r: its fught time

KeytarCat: "Other Land"? The DS2 DLC? We gonna fight a manticore?
CAKHost: I feel that Owl will just stay at the side and say "Are you winning, son?"
BrowneePoints: I would KILL for a Sekiro 2, don't even TEASE lol
Lyropithic: Sekiro 2: Sekiro Harder
Seth_Erickson: I'd even take dlc at this point
Kyir: He speaks the truth
BrowneePoints: I like them both Q.Q
Seth_Erickson: Still haven't played BB
Seth_Erickson: Exclusives DansGame
Talin06: why get bloodborn 2 when we could get a armored core
thraximore: Looting the body before it hits the ground LUL
dumpsterfire: LUL
GhostValv: metal wolf chaos?
Juliamon: Metal Wolf Chaos
Kyir: Sekiro?
NUTSOFODEN: We got Wall Street a very long time ago
KeytarCat: Those are all good answeres LUL
Kyir: The sidestep
thraximore: the 1 2 punch
dumpsterfire: the footsies
Lyropithic: Five second rule
Seth_Erickson: 1 sidestep 2 punch gets 'im every time
thraximore: Can't declare a time of death if it's the doctor that's dying umbraSmile
BrowneePoints: This is Sengoku era Japan, can't graverob unless you're Dutch(haha! irl history joke!)
Seth_Erickson: Can old Isshin mikiri counter or is it only reborn Isshin
asthanius: sluuuuurp
thraximore: *sluuuuuuuuurp*
asthanius: The sun
BrowneePoints: Ah yes, the most powerful technique, Shinobi Succ
BrowneePoints: Noonoo?
Kyir: woof
thraximore: He cleaned up QUICK this timeline
asthanius: Why did you get hit? Aren't you not supposed to do that?
NUTSOFODEN: you're holding your controler backwards Ben
crono3453: I didn't know Isshin could use The World
BrowneePoints: Oh man, new jojo soon!
dweebert91: You didn't hit auto-battle that time Kappa
Robot_Bones: The sun was in my eyes!
Kyir: That went well
thraximore: Comedy gold
asthanius: Nature abhors a Shinobi
Seth_Erickson: Can we get the vacuum going during the cutscene that'd be great
Robot_Bones: Secret tool Shinobi Vacuum
asthanius: They're not all prerendered, at least
asthanius: I've seen videos of some cutscenes with the camera unlocked
BrowneePoints: pre-rendered instead of ...
Seth_Erickson: Do the boss gauntlet cosmetics show up in cutscenes? that's something I haven't seen
Kyir: Is this NG+1 or a different file entirely?
BrowneePoints: what the heck is the term for cutscenes that are in engine/you are in control of..
asthanius: @BrowneePoints in-game cutscene
BrowneePoints: Is it in-game? I thought Half-Life 2 created a new term for them
asthanius: *shrug* that's the term I use
asthanius: maybe real-time?
BrowneePoints: Oh yea, did you do hand/wrist care maintenance Ben?
thraximore: My instinct to Mikir counter every thrust attack is itching every time wheeler jumps away
BrowneePoints: I just asked cuz I neglect it all the time myself(which is no bueno chat, take care of your fingies and hands)
matthaus_c: there's a stereotype that your face is the moneymaker, but the seasoned know that fingies are the real deal lrrBEEJ
KeytarCat: Don't smoke with Emma, got it
KeytarCat: An ending per break doesn't seem unreasonable until you start getting tired O_o
KeytarCat: Oh right, this is an early ending
Seth_Erickson: Yeah, There's an entire half of a game beyond this decision roughly
KeytarCat: I watched my brother play bits and pieces
Kyir: Just don't betray Kuro and it's A-OK
TheThirdTail: I forget time scales, but isn't Isshin like a few hours from dying of age in this fight? Just a weird thought I had
Kyir: @TheThirdTail That's right, yeah
Fanklok: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:31:56.
thraximore: It's definitely within my experience that Emma is easy at first, but PUNISHES getting sloppy
Seth_Erickson: No Isshin's a fair bit away from dying isn't he like a day or two.

Kyir: Emma just does this. You think you've got her figured out and then everything goes wrong
Seth_Erickson: We still have to be raided by the Ministry and have the castle get shut down for a second time
TheThirdTail: Hmm, a few days makes more sense, yeah.
TheThirdTail: Either way, he's pretty spry considering
KeytarCat: Isshin is on his way out the doors, and he'd probably die shortly after killing you in this fight, at least by my limited understanding (speedruns and such)
Kyir: He's still not jumping around like he does when he comes back in his prime though. It's a good distinction!
TheThirdTail: Yeah, the duality there is a cool detail
KeytarCat: I adore the Emma fight, but I haven't actually played the game :P
Seth_Erickson: Double Genichiro'd you LUL
incredulouspasserby: no you looked like you were #gaming before
thraximore: You were also fresh
Kyir: Emma just punishes impatience a lot
KeytarCat: You learned a pattern and the AI switched to different moves to counter?
thraximore: It's probably at least partially luck
KeytarCat: because AI manipulation is a thing? Is it a thing for this game?
KeytarCat: right, blocking is productive
KeytarCat: I really only know the speedrun trick: There's a dead-angle setup somewhere LUL
Keaton__Mask: FBtouchdown
thraximore: uh oh, stinky
limdul37424: This has convinced me that I do not need to play this game.
yakbop: time for speedrun strats
yakbop: maaaaaan this guy, good luck
thraximore: good volley
PrinceValentines: Poor Shinobi
YeetTheRich_: please don't
thraximore: blink and you'll miss him
Seth_Erickson: Blink and he'll get ya
GhostValv: fair
thraximore: coulda shoulda woulda
Kyir: It's just a tough fight
thraximore: This fight was far more frustrating for me than the usual ending fight
Kyir: There's a lot of attacks that come out very fast and do a lot of damage
thraximore: Perfect
thraximore: Quite literally I think

iridium_alchemist: I think the stage does a lot in terms of difficulty in this fight. Both Emma and Isshin can quickly cover like 75% of it, so you don't have easy ways to run and breath.
Juliamon: Getting hit by an environmental attack feels bad
dumpsterfire: My eyes aren't great so even watching it, i have a hard time seeing isshin through the fire
thraximore: "The game really makes you FEEL like Shura." -IGN
Kadenus: "Screw you and I'll see you tomorrow"
Seth_Erickson: Really makes you want to give back Kuro's Charm Kappa
Lyropithic: I shuram tired of that grab attack
thraximore: @Lyropithic bad dum tsssss
thraximore: Old man is spry
thraximore: You'd hardly guess he was dying
thraximore: This old man is dying TONIGHT, and you can COUNT ON IT
Seth_Erickson: You'll get I believe it
Seth_Erickson: him*
Juliamon: Victory has been promised, now it is assured
thraximore: Wheeler never breaks a promise
BloodnBullets: I look forward to catching the end of this stream tomorrow morning lrrBEEJ
incredulouspasserby: oh right water
Seth_Erickson: I did do that

ComradeMik: hot damn, she is not fucking around
Kyir: but what if you had to fight Emma and Isshin at once like the double Guardian Ape
Kyir: That would be something
Kyir: I can't deal with Double Ape. Every playthrough I feel like I get worse at it
AkiraBalance27: have we finished a second ending yet?
thraximore: I actually don't think I've done Double Ape yet umbraThink I think I missed it during my initial playthroughs
Kyir: There's some weird timing thing with finding it iirc
Kyir: 2 is too many apes though
thraximore: @Kyir It's also in a weird place
Kyir: (conservationists probably disagree with my ape assessment)
thraximore: Wait so you have to go to the double ape fight after the first one, but before the corrupted monk?
thraximore: I'll just go to the wiki
Kyir: It's just sometimes you're already past the place where it spawns depending on how you order it, yeah
Seth_Erickson: Yeah you can go straight to double ape after single ape
AkiraBalance27: Isshin is pretty fast for someone literally at deaths door
Kyir: Gotta love games when you can just talk about double ape and everyone's like "yeah, double ape"
thraximore: ooooh I guess I always just went through Ashina Depths BEFORE killing first ape
Kyir: 4 gourds! Let's go!

ComradeMik: very close
AlucardMarkov: No pellet?
ComradeMik: do you have any pellets?
thraximore: @AlucardMarkov out of pellets.
GhostValv: getting there
incredulouspasserby: his health was lower than his posture was broken
ComradeMik: oof
GhostValv: full unga
thraximore: Be! Agressive! umbraHype
AlucardMarkov: You got this Ben
Kyir: Like he says in the other fight, hesitation is defeat VoHiYo
incredulouspasserby: smart vs Emma n phase 1 old dude, unrelenting aggression vs phase 2?
thraximore: Be aggressive and don't fuck up, is what it is
ComradeMik: go ham steaks, not full ham
Kyir: Those two doors are super cursed
AkiraBalance27: after his loss in the other route, Isshin took chats advice to try pyromancy
thraximore: @AkiraBalance27 That explains it!
thraximore: It seems to be working for Isshin, so it must be good advice!
thraximore: I think you need to space
Kyir: You have to find a safe spot, yeah
thraximore: It really is like a DS fight in that respect
Kyir: That guy's applying to fill in for the mini boss
Seth_Erickson: flames only hit where the flame's already exist so just gotta make sure your in one of those spots
kdefinition: yeah, i never learned how to dodge that attack.
asthanius: What if we go back to "never parry"?
thraximore: @asthanius Good luck 😬
asthanius: I mean, it's lessening the threat
Kyir: Great Emma fight!
AkiraBalance27: very well done
asthanius: Nice rhythm
thraximore: See that's an easy set
thraximore: It's just parry + r1
AkiraBalance27: strong start
thraximore: GOOD p2
Kyir: 6 gourds! Let's go
asthanius: Smooth
thraximore: lmao
AkiraBalance27: looped lmao
Kyir: well, that works
thraximore: was that... 4 times in a row?
asthanius: Awwww no cheese for Wheeler
asthanius: Ain't no cheese, that's a piece of cake!
thraximore: CMON
AkiraBalance27: lets gooo
Kyir: Good job!
Juliamon: WOO
Seth_Erickson: I wonder if the fire here is also supposed to be a reference to sculptor's boss fight

Juliamon: Phenomenal timing on that, still within the scheduled window
thraximore: Fun fact: the thing that Owl sets down right next to Isshin's body here is Genichiro's head, it's just out of frame
Kyir: Owl is such a great character. Love him
