Twinklebees: I was just impressed that it managed to achieve maximum clown so thoroughly
Twinklebees: But now it's time to go and finish ARR. With the biggest betrayal.
Twinklebees: I am of course talking about Tataru's Carbuncle
Weagle: Lol...
Twinklebees: Also I'm just about to hit HW and I'm already 57. Curse you, ARR post game
Weagle: Oh dear
Weagle: My PLD is at 52 and has barely done anything past Praetorium

porkyoupyne: Have you beat this game before? :)
cuttlefishman: but we're going fast
the_jevry: are you new on llr question mark

cuttlefishman: steve
noSmokeFire: is it Amit?
Naitoshadou: Let's name it Fred. He looks like a Fred to me.
GDwarf: Not learning the name until after must make consulting walkthroughs annoying
cuttlefishman: Where is the hitbox specifically?
Naitoshadou: I think it's the mouth area exactly.

Mangledpixel: boop
TXC2: hello Mangledpixel welcome
Mangledpixel: how goes the La-Mulaning?
Naitoshadou: So when it rushes you you have to shuriken it to avoid damage?
Mangledpixel: you have several quotes
TXC2: you have other quotes from before these streams Matt
cuttlefishman: Is there any way to beat without shuriken?

Naitoshadou: Not gonna lie, the rigging animation on the boss looks...kinda cheesy.
Mangledpixel: Naitoshadou I think that's part of the charm
cuttlefishman: how... how splayed is the legs?
Mangledpixel: maximum splay
cuttlefishman: they're at some angle which seems more than 120 degrees at least
TehAmelie: it's trying to walk like a lizard
the_jevry: this game must be pretty low budget looking at the legs of that boss
cuttlefishman: not quite 180
Naitoshadou: Closer to 16, I think.
Mangledpixel: you would not want to sit next to this thing on the subway
Naitoshadou: *160
TXC2: theres a real Ray Harryhasaun look to this monster
noSmokeFire: whip at five health. seems fine.
cuttlefishman: Hmm, I guess they do splay out a fair amount
Mangledpixel: womp womp
TXC2: Mangledpixel I wouln't wont to share a subway sandwich with this monster Kappa
noSmokeFire: (narrator voice: it was not fine)
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: katesLurk katesLurk katesLurk
TehAmelie: seems like you'd want to start with the whip and get it out of the way first.
noSmokeFire: that lizard is in the pocket of big shuriken
TehAmelie: or capitalism i guess
TXC2: !addquote (Matt Griffiths) [now] I think a capitalism might solve this problem.

EricTheOrange: that bat is trolling you
noSmokeFire: TOS?
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: I don't think that's how that works?
EricTheOrange: dats some vore shit right their
TXC2: I think you have that backwards game
TXC2: it only work if you're the biblical Adam Kappa
MagiqueerHere: It's like alien. she crawls inside, then baby comes out
the_jevry: ded
TXC2: MagiqueerHere pls, I've JUST eaten
Naitoshadou: That sun...has a villain moustache...
CaKnuckleguy: I mean...
the_jevry: F
aitsu100: lol
noSmokeFire: I was about to ask whether that can crush you
EricTheOrange: yeah that killed me the first time too
Alness49: We expected a different result?
noSmokeFire: cheevo get
Naitoshadou: I feel like the moustache should have told you that was coming.
MagiqueerHere: Evil moustache for sure
MagiqueerHere: Ah yes, the ancient Egyptian laser beams
noSmokeFire: you were supporting murder and capitalism earlier, so I'm going to say the pattern fits
Alness49: the inverted castle?
cuttlefishman: are you the man now dog?
Mangledpixel: subtle
MagiqueerHere: wow this is subtle
TXC2: BlackManLeangingForward.gif
the_jevry: oh wow
TXC2: Thats a vagina
GhostOfACoffeeCup: *uterus
the_jevry: i see it now too XD TF is this game?
Naitoshadou: Ach, Matt, Run! It's the SubtleHint!
noSmokeFire: now, I'm no musicologist, but I'm not sure that's how that works
GhostOfACoffeeCup: Insert child into woman?
GDwarf: Takumi Naramura knows of game designers who use subtext, and thinks they're all cowards! :P
EricTheOrange: I beat this area and got to the sky place and that and the twin temple are as far as I got
MagiqueerHere: "okay frank, you can go on your lunch break once you finish carving fallopian tubes into the temple wall"
LetsConsider: Wait, who is this?
TXC2: LetsConsider you mean the streamer?
Naitoshadou: Matt
cuttlefishman: how can it support the block but not you?
Naitoshadou: Matt Griffiths
LetsConsider: Did I miss him joining LRR? @txc2
noSmokeFire: the platform is ticklish
MagiqueerHere: Lmao I feel you LC
TXC2: LetsConsider Matt's mainly be doing editing
MagiqueerHere: I for one accept our new Matt
cuttlefishman: Matt editor
cuttlefishman: Meditor
GhostOfACoffeeCup: a qt3.14 gai boi
noSmokeFire: we need an !explainmatt. and maybe an !explaingoats
SenseAmidstMadness: Secret Matt
Naitoshadou: This chat is remarkably quiet. I kinda like it.
MagiqueerHere: acceptable hair
cuttlefishman: is a chill game
TXC2: "So you want to work at LRR, Step one: Can you edit?"
cuttlefishman: doesn't need huge commentary
LetsConsider: @txc2 ah, okay. Well hi Matt! So are you gonna be doing more on stream stuff?
the_jevry: ~~i guess you can say you have left the editing closet?~~ okay il leave now
Neljandik: Secret Matt, Secret Matt... Does whatever a secret Matt does...
GDwarf: This feels like Rhythm Cafe levels of chat, which is nice
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Crocogator
GDwarf: Can you see its teeth when it closes its mouth?
aitsu100: allidile
GhostOfACoffeeCup: the big brother shop sells truncated dictionaries
cuttlefishman: is it a caiman
Naitoshadou: Is it a dinosaur?
GDwarf: The easiest way to tell the difference is if the teeth are inside or outside the lips when the mouth is closed, I'm told
noSmokeFire: Dolphin! Combat! Vehicle!
cuttlefishman: could be like a proto synapsid
noSmokeFire: spraypaint THAT on the side of a van!
Alness49: That's a metal album cover right there
aitsu100: that the shape of the snoot and size
Mangledpixel: that looks like it would be at home spraypainted on the side of a van
Mangledpixel: as would much of this game's art, tbh
cuttlefishman: isn't it magma if underground?
Naitoshadou: Sirens?
MagiqueerHere: Yup
TXC2: Dolphin combat vehicle is the super hardcore Flipper remake Kappa
MagiqueerHere: It's like a reverse meteor/meteorite
Aylig: Lava flows above ground. Magma pools underground.
TXC2: it is indeed Magma if underground
cuttlefishman: geography =/= geology
Naitoshadou: So, this is certainly a Greek ruin, considering all of Sirens, Poseidon, and Dolphin Chariots. Which means this is likely a temple of Artemis.
Aylig: That's my general trick to remembering them.
shurtal: Plate Tectonics, yo!
MagiqueerHere: Plate tectonics is just a theory
cuttlefishman: Matt "Hot Stuff" Griffiths
Aylig: Lava: Satan's Tang
GhostOfACoffeeCup: no touchy the magby
noSmokeFire: it's the hottest salsa
aitsu100: yes molten rock is hot
rybackgaming: Don't drink that Koolaid.
LetsConsider: @magiqueerhere I mean, so is evolution
Naitoshadou: "The souls of twins dwell here" Yep, it's probably Artemis and Apollo, temples of Moon and Sun. Though, Artemis was supposed to be a maiden?
the_jevry: Koolaid is a basic fundemental human right!
shurtal: Spicy Earth Blood
Mangledpixel: hot enough that you shouldn't even be anywhere near it
EricTheOrange: "Lava; the forbidden coolaid"
noSmokeFire: stab that lizard!
EricTheOrange: Can the knife hit them?
MagiqueerHere: @letsconsider Yup! and gravity too.
cuttlefishman: what part of your geography degree do you use in your editing?
MagiqueerHere: I didn't know that Carl Jung was the designer of la mulana
cuttlefishman: my apologies
Naitoshadou: The part where he takes abstract shapes and orders them to make sense to humans, @cuttlefishman
MagiqueerHere: Geotagging?
LetsConsider: @magiqueerhere theory means very different things in a scientific and the colloquial context
noSmokeFire: relateable!
TXC2: big mood
MagiqueerHere: @letsconsider Exactly!
LetsConsider: I wish I was that kind of person
TXC2: I spent 5 years at college and only came away with the qualification I got after year 1 :P
Naitoshadou: we're getting Christian notes...
Naitoshadou: What kind of crazy ruin is this?
TXC2: Naitoshadou all of them
TXC2: get rosesetta stone?
cuttlefishman: what software do we have so far?
LetsConsider: ^
MagiqueerHere: I was the same way with geology. Love large scale stuff, accretion, plate tectonics, etc. but I couldn't stand remembering the taste and cleavage of every mineral
noSmokeFire: good to know!
Naitoshadou: I've worked on deciphering Phyrexian. Give me everything you got on the language and a week or so and I'll come back with something, @LoadingReadyRun
MrSVCD: Q: parallel "play it forward" tracks? or is Paul done?
LetsConsider: @naitoshadou is phyrexian an actual language?
EvilBadman: @MrSVCD Paul finished
TXC2: MrSVCD nope Paul's done
Mysticman89: it amazes me how far some people can go with made up languages in fiction
cuttlefishman: Paul's gone to a better place
TXC2: Phyrexian is an alphabet
cuttlefishman: to the farm
Naitoshadou: @LetsConsider Yep. Full on language, not even a character or word swap.
NomenNeminis: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 35:48.
noSmokeFire: the tree is helpfully labeled
LetsConsider: @naitoshadou what, like what Tolkien did with all his languages?
EricTheOrange: Point of note no where in the bible does it say the fruit of eden is an apple.
NomenNeminis: Is this a blind play-though?
MagiqueerHere: of course you would say that, @erictheorange
TXC2: NomenNeminis nope
NomenNeminis: TXC2 Thanks!
noSmokeFire: now you're freddy krueger
Mysticman89: theres tolkein languages, dothraki from GoT, klingon from star trek and probably a bunch of others that aren't "real" but people have fully learned/understood.
aitsu100: we Vega now
Naitoshadou: Even those were more word replacements, they used an English syntax tree. Phyrexia has its own grammatical structure, syntax, and specific eccentricities, such as not having a term for the individual. @LetsConsider
Pal_Friendpatine: @erictheorange some speculate it was actually a pomegranate
cuttlefishman: "Dad, stop injecting weird bloods into me!"
Oatway_: you know your dad; big fan of those ninja blood transfusions
TXC2: there is no I in phyrexia......wait
EricTheOrange: @MagiqueerHere i don't get it.
NomenNeminis: Ice Cape!
cuttlefishman: Are we batman
cuttlefishman: like ninja batman
MagiqueerHere: @erictheorange Well obviously you are brimming with anti-apple propoganda
NomenNeminis: EricTheOrange I think they were referring to your usename
Mysticman89: so, indiana joins meets batman
NomenNeminis: *username
Oatway_: that's me in the corner
Mysticman89: jones even
EricTheOrange: @MagiqueerHere oh right orange. It's supposed to be the color not the fruit.
EvilBadman: Ninjiana Jones
aitsu100: so Toyko Tim?
kerbalized_: what about Neptune's belly button?
TXC2: ninja Batman, or Batman
NomenNeminis: Weird that they call him Neptune in one place and Poseidon in another. I wonder if anyone got confused by that.
MagiqueerHere: ooh the animation on the rock creature sprites waz real nice
cuttlefishman: Ninja Batman is a strange film
cuttlefishman: not... bad
cuttlefishman: but not... not that great a work?
cuttlefishman: has style down pat
NomenNeminis: "Running Low on Weights: The La-Mulana Story"
NomenNeminis: Speaking of Indiana Jones...
noSmokeFire: Ninja batman is interesting, because the japanese and english scripts were written in parallel. so they have different stories in different languages.
LathosTiran: give up our laptop? never!
cuttlefishman: AXE
MagiqueerHere: kinda like samurai pizza cats?
Alness49: Axe making mincemeat? Shouldn't it be chops?
TXC2: time to axe some questions
cuttlefishman: don't use the axes on the dinosaurs
cuttlefishman: they're... cleaver girls
NomenNeminis: I liked it.
aitsu100: BOOO-urns
Alness49: Tough crowd tonight
NomenNeminis: Gun is super OP iirc, right?
Pal_Friendpatine: Lol I still read that as clever
T1pster: Xelpud... I need you to focus here
NomenNeminis: Have we found the sleepy girl yet?
NomenNeminis: Gotcha
kerbalized_: quote #4?
Naitoshadou: @LoadingReadyRun I took a screenshot of the text, which has gone missing, as sometimes happens on my computer (I suspect it doesn't save them). Any chance you could get that tablet again?
cuttlefishman: Get it from the VoD maybe @Naitoshadou ?
NomenNeminis: Kids, don't try this in real life.
TXC2: gotta spend money to be able to spend money
Naitoshadou: For the translation
TXC2: "this is Ankh, Ankh means sanctuary"
NomenNeminis: A skull? You're going to have to be more specific in this game, tablet-writer.
Naitoshadou: Welp, I just spent waaaay to long looking for that picture XD
Alness49: Just remember not to chase waterfalls.
Naitoshadou: Considering I'm not actually needed.
NomenNeminis: It's strange how many water monsters are horse-based, at least in Celtic cultures.
TXC2 has sonic labyrinth zone flashback
NomenNeminis: Poor phantom fish
NomenNeminis: Kelpies
Naitoshadou: And let's not forget Greek. Hippocampi, Horses, to some extent Pegasus, all tied to Poseidon.
noSmokeFire: Kelpies, not selkies. Selkies are seals.
NomenNeminis: Selkies are seals, right?
TXC2: Posideon's whole thing was water and horses
Naitoshadou: Yet, he did not appear in the move The Waterhorse...
NomenNeminis: Well, selkies can eat you.
noSmokeFire: ah yes, the traditional celtic monster: laser crab
TXC2: is that 4 legs? or 2 REALLY THICC legs ?
Naitoshadou: That looks like a Simic experiment gone wrong...
queenfounder: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Join Matt as he plays through this remakes of the classic platform adventure game. Game: La-Mulana) at Fri 10:00 AM PDT (50m ago).
NomenNeminis: That looks so much like a guy in a rubber suit. He just need a sentai team to fight him
EricTheOrange: Along with being god of the sea Posidon was also god of horses for some reason
Gascitygaming: EA made a seal??
noSmokeFire: speaking of seals Kappa
NomenNeminis: One of my favorite Unskippable gags was them making seal clapping and barking noises whenever a character mentioned the other kind of seal
Pal_Friendpatine: ‘Wall seals’. Those are the seals that stay around the edges of the room when they go clubbing, right?
Naitoshadou: Welp, GG, the world ends because he just released Hel or something.
Naitoshadou: Never unseal a ancient door.
EricTheOrange: maybe save just in case you don'tt one shot it
noSmokeFire: one singular glove
sekunder: is this, like, spelunky++?
NomenNeminis: Naitoshadou Unsealing ancient doors is basically the entire point of this game.
cuttlefishman: Is this game basically fashion souls?
Naitoshadou: @NomenNeminis Then this world is truly doomed.
traveller800: walking fish....WHAT
noSmokeFire: @sekunder it's more spelunky--. it's one of spelunky's inspirations.
sekunder: oh, neat!
noSmokeFire: Fish! Master!
NomenNeminis: sekunder This is the HD remake of the original game
TXC2: Sail away sail away sail Away
cuttlefishman: Bomb it?
traveller800: @LoadingReadyRun why is there walking fish?
NomenNeminis: Please note that Lemeza is wearing the helmet UNDER his hat. He loves his fedora. :)
traveller800: suddenly CATHLEEN
NomenNeminis: Hi Kathleen! Bye Kathleen!
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Somewhere Serge felt a disturbance
TXC2: somewhere Serge Cries for no reason Kappa
Mysticman89: evolution.
noSmokeFire: the fish have places to be
CrazymattCaptain: normal celtic walking fish..... yes...
Pal_Friendpatine: If fish can fly, some can walk
TXC2: surely walking fish are amphibians?
Pal_Friendpatine: Walking catfish?
Naitoshadou: I'm sure some can teleport, too.
traveller800: perfectly NOOOORMAAAL
TXC2: kinky Kappa
noSmokeFire: here's wonderwall
Mysticman89: isnt the a term for that? prince albert or something
NomenNeminis: Hippopotamus= "River horse"
TXC2: Naitoshadou indeed they are
Naitoshadou: Why are they in a Celtic water ruin?
RealWormbo: a "pipe"
NomenNeminis: Naitoshadou This mixes soooo many disparate mythologies. Don't get too worked up over it. It will be unhealthy
noSmokeFire: c'est n'cest pas une pipe?
TXC2: so? it's the pipe dick shark, everyone knows about the pipe dick shark Kappa
NomenNeminis: Maybe they're invasive species? Kappa
Silvertunga: Hi you guys are adorbs but I just noticed you're online and I can't deal with joining a stream partway through so I'll just leave you with that (and I'm still watching an ad so I don't even know who's streaming, that's how much i love y'all)!
sekunder: amazonRUDE1 amazonRUDE2
NomenNeminis: One giant did move a lake to raise a temple
NomenNeminis: *tower
Mangledpixel: my favourite word derived from 'hippo' is necrohippoflagellation
kerbalized_: seems more like a chastity belt than a pipe dick
Mangledpixel: (i.e. beating a dead horse)
NomenNeminis: A comfortable space for fish...until you KILLED THEM Kappa
TXC2: so she's the final boss then?
EricTheOrange: well I assume at the top
NomenNeminis: Mothers: known for being silent and perched up high???
traveller800 game is now assasins creed 8bit edition
noSmokeFire: a weird, maternal version of elf on a shelf?
Naitoshadou: A winged serpopard, maybe?
NomenNeminis: It really annoys me that the bats don't care about flying underwater
noSmokeFire: frankly, it's stranger that most of the ruin is lit up
TXC2: Chamber of Extinction? yeap that's not ominous
noSmokeFire: oh, yeah, it'd honk. I'm all for ancient egyptian electric lighting
TXC2: never sacrifice good gameplay for realism
NomenNeminis: This whole ruin is just a giant trap for adventurers and tourists. That's why it's lit up! The enemies make their living off of it.
RoeDent89: Suspension of disbelief.
RoeDent89: As in many forms of art.
PixelArtDragon: Yay for La-Mulana! Love this game.
RoeDent89: You have to suspend your disbelief in a lot of reality, but this is not the place to go there.
NomenNeminis: If it's 100% realistic, you lose the reason to play a videogame at all, for me at least.
NomenNeminis: Is this one of the puzzles that's permanently missable?
EvilBadman: that's an interesting take on how you play games, in comparison to your not wanting to deep dive in academics.
cuttlefishman: you want simple direct answers?
cuttlefishman: research tax policy
coelopteryx: "100% realistic" reminds me that earlier i saw someone playing gta v as a cop, just.. doing a routine traffic stop like one would irl, voice chat roleplaying it and all. traffic cop simulator. i thought it was funny at any rate
RoeDent89: Games that have an end point.
PixelArtDragon: I especially like that, at least in my theory, ever puzzle is solveable with the information presented somewhere, but it's hard to piece everything together.
TXC2: 100% realistic games is how you get desert bus Kappa
RoeDent89: Not falling in lava is generally good advice.
traveller800: the next level is candy land
NomenNeminis: !advice
LRRbot: Jund 'em out.
NomenNeminis: !badadvice
LRRbot: Use the elephant gun.
Naitoshadou: YES! I love that word! People don't use it enough!
RoeDent89: In both games and in real life.
TXC2: to be fair tax policy has one answer: give us money
NomenNeminis: Sometimes it's not enough money
Mysticman89: textbooks ar epricy
Naitoshadou: I love how he goes from "I'm playing video games, go away" to "Go dig up some hot springs. Hot springs are nice."
NomenNeminis: That is a ridiculously hard blind jump to make
RoeDent89: The vultures in Spyro the Dragon freaked me out big time.
NomenNeminis: Makes ense

NomenNeminis: I saw someone doing a blind playthrough and they actually killed this boss with the knife
TXC2: what even is the hitbox on this? :p
fiveagen: @TXC2 just the face
T1pster: TXC2 the head while the mouth is open I think
NomenNeminis: They were a very stubborn person
Blade_Tiger: To be fair the knife is one of the better weapons for this boss
Blade_Tiger: "How is the knife better?" Attack speed is how
BrindleBoar: dernaser
Mysticman89: might the chakram be useful?
NomenNeminis: I feel like the chakrum would be too hard to re-catch?
RealWormbo: can you axe it when it charges?
PixelArtDragon: I use the knife on the giant in the original because of how short the window for damage is
TXC2: in theory yes
Mysticman89: I feel like theres onnly like 3 heights you're really at, and maybe double hits are possible? dunno how it works
Frankenkeen: Glad we'll be seeing more of you on stream Matt - You have a great mellow vibe. It's a nice change-up from the loud boys, haha - which is not a knock on Ben and Adam, love those guys, but it's nice to have balance :)
NomenNeminis: Is he only vulnerable when his mouth is open?

TXC2: and we're back
TXC2: ah yes Hathor, the Daughter/wife of Ra
yomidian: hedgehog, the enemy of all life
LathosTiran: Isis has a chair on her head
NomenNeminis: According to Wikipedia, Isis does in fact have a throne on her head.
NomenNeminis: Yay, now we can access an easter egg
NomenNeminis: " in Greek. The hieroglyphic writing of her name incorporates the sign for a throne, which Isis also wears on her head as a sign of her identity. The symbol serves as a phonogram, spelling the st sounds in her name, but it may have also represented a link with actual thrones. The Egyptian term for a throne was also st and may have shared a common etymology with Isis's name. Therefore, the Egyptologist Kurt Sethe suggested she was originally a personification of thrones. Henri Frankfort agreed, b
NomenNeminis: Woah, sorry for the wall of text.
NomenNeminis: Her Egyptian name was "ꜣst" according to the same article.
TXC2: so she was a chair?
LathosTiran: so a goddess of chairs
NomenNeminis: I can't read that character either
plummeting_sloth: First Chair of the God council
plummeting_sloth: Green fairy increases the drop rate of absinthe
yomidian: green is luck fairy, so makes enemies drop ammo/weights/coins, and makes breakable walls/pots drop ridiculous amounts of money
NomenNeminis: Later eras changed Isis' headdress in different ways.
TXC2: cash money, dollar bills yall
yomidian: this is the power spot for cash yes
Pal_Friendpatine: Farm!,!!!!
NomenNeminis: !finquote farm

LRRbot: Quote #5351: "I don't think I need to farm pandas." —Serge [2018-10-02]
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Quick reminder for this evenings Friday Night Paper Fight. This is the first stream under the new schedule. So be aware that we go live at 5PM Pacific on for a Conspiracy Draft! ||
NomenNeminis: I want context for that quote so badly!
TXC2: NomenNeminis it's from Minecraft
Pal_Friendpatine: riffLUL Nice @nomenneminis
NomenNeminis: TXC2 That makes sense...wait, pandas are in Minecraft?!
TXC2: probably in modded
NomenNeminis: Also, because it's a dragon bone. Who wouldn't want a dragon bone?
Magicmeow: getting a dragon bone for the mother? kinky.
RealWormbo: you can technically "farm" slime from baby pandas
NomenNeminis: Oh, no worries. I admittedly know almost nothing about Minecraft. Also, they have mushroom cows, so I don't know why pandas surprised me.
RealWormbo: they sometimes sneeze, and occasionally drop slime balls when doing so
EricTheOrange: Palanke is a great name
TXC2: pa-lan-key
TXC2: it's like a palanquin
EricTheOrange: you could buy ONE bullet with that kind of cash
TXC2: one bullet? are we using a Desert eagle? jeez
yomidian: now I can comment on the Endless Corridor bats thing! the front side and back side areas have different bats
yomidian: and the endless corridor, despite being a front area in positioning, has the back side area bats
yomidian: how mysterious
NomenNeminis: Wasn't that the "Life seal"
yomidian: they're numbered. the four seals are also numbers
TXC2: we have a fairy now
EricTheOrange: @TXC2 Bullets are like this games easy mode for bosses. You turn grinding for hours against enemies for gold into bullets and can kill most bosses in like 4 bullets.
yomidian: weapon fairy will happily hit things in areas with eye of judgment, murdering you
TXC2: I see
RealWormbo: the camera was shaking, yes, we noticed :)
plummeting_sloth: The construction crew is displeased at your riddle solving
TXC2: fairy knows no chill
NomenNeminis: Is there any item or ability that will decrease your knockback when you take damage?
CoyoteSans: No. Knockback will be our enemy the entire game.
NomenNeminis: :(
yomidian: you should be able to pick up the book of the dead now that you've met the anubis?
yomidian: or maybe it requires you to get hit by the drain attack
Anubis169: you rang?
TXC2: Hi Anubis169
NomenNeminis: yomidian I don't think we've woken the appropriate person yet.
yomidian: maybe I forgot a flag and we haven't met that person in spite of the seal
yomidian: "let's not and say we did"
plummeting_sloth: leave the bone boys to their spikes
ForOhForError: can you pet the dog
NomenNeminis: Moonwalking would be appropriate
yomidian: welcome to skeleton pit
Juking_is_Rude: yooo lamulana is one of my favorite games, respect
RealWormbo: what do the weight do?
ForOhForError: you need weights to activate pedestals
Juking_is_Rude: weights let you press down switches
CoyoteSans: They're Small Keys, basically.
TXC2: welcome to my life Matt, NO ONE has played the same games I have it seems :P
GDwarf: I don't remember how I first learned about La Mulana. Maybe via TV Tropes back in the day? I found it interesting, but never finished it.
mcneleon: I liked it enough to fund the sequel’s Kickstarter...
Pal_Friendpatine: @txc2 have you played Kingdoms of Amlur?
TXC2: nope
Pal_Friendpatine: Hmm darn. I gambled. Didn’t pay out
EricTheOrange: I play a lot of indie games so la-mulana was definitely a thing I knew about.
TXC2: all my Games were basically C&C or sonic :P
NomenNeminis: I had the same experience, Matt.
GDwarf: TV Tropes is over a decade old. It's weird to realize that. <<
TXC2: TV tropes: it'll get ya
Pal_Friendpatine: Ha nice @txc2
GDwarf: I don't really go there anymore, it's too reductive generally, but I appreciate that it got me to actually think about the media I consumed
Magicmeow: huh. I just realized that I added this game to my steam account - 6 years ago. never even installed it
Pal_Friendpatine: How does your health bar max expand?
NomenNeminis: I honestly still use TVTropes as a way to gauge my likelihood of enjoying a show/movie,etc. Promotional stuff can be so misleading.
GDwarf: Yes, exactly. The individual elements can definitely be looked at separately, but you can't forget that they're part of a whole and should work together
GDwarf: Hah, yeah, it's kinda the ultimate tag database for professional fiction, never thought about it that way
kumatsu: I definitely did my fair share of finding new Webcomics to read by looking up tropes
NomenNeminis: Humans. We love putting things in boxes. However, anytime you put something in a box, you exaggerate some aspects and diminish others.
TXC2: to be fair TV tropes if often good at pointing when something uses a trope differently
TXC2: also the useful notes pages are exactly that
EricTheOrange: All I remember about TV Tropes is it seemed like evereything had the trope "Your Milage may vary". Which seemed like a way for whoever wrote that page to just put their opinion on the page.
Juking_is_Rude: this is one of my favorite parts of this game
RealWormbo: it'S a pear?
TXC2: EricTheOrange YMMV is set of tropes now
GDwarf: EricTheOrange They kinda changed that, but yes, for a while there there was a big problem with people using some of the tropes to just rag on fiction they didn't like
TXC2: like it's it own tab on each page
Juking_is_Rude: surprise!
NomenNeminis: Is that the game's way of saying "Difficulty spike?"
yomidian: I really enjoy gate of illusion just because it goes all-out on 'the backside version of an area subverts the frontside theme of the area'
NomenNeminis: Oh. Oh no.
CoyoteSans: The kid gloves finally come off: the real La-Mulana starts here.
yomidian: remember how gate of guidance was a gentle tutorial that taught you how to do the game
yomidian: hahaha
Juking_is_Rude: gate of guidance = tutorial area, gate of illusion = good luck lol
NomenNeminis: I don't know exactly why, but I'm getting flashbacks to original Devil May Cry.
TXC2: and now the game truly begins
CoyoteSans: On the contrary, I feel Illusion Gate does an excellent job teaching you what the rest of the game will be like.
EricTheOrange: Yeah I never found this place. All those puzzles with the eden stuff I couldn't figure out
Juking_is_Rude: this is straight up one of the best tracks in the ost too
Juking_is_Rude: though all the music is amazing
NomenNeminis: I haven't either. I havn't played a lot of games, but I've seen quite a few let's plays.
CoyoteSans: The Arranged version of this song is sooo good.
CoyoteSans: dat heartbeat
yomidian: gate of illusion tends to be where I see blind runs need a hint or two. that or [redacted]
TXC2: I remember when I watched a LP of FF13, can't do that shit anymore :P
NomenNeminis: It may be the wording on the tablets, or the color palette.
aitsu100: neither
Juking_is_Rude: it sounds like it wants you to go left, its been too long since I played this level to remember which is correct
CoyoteSans: the correct answer is neither
aitsu100: i was kinda right
aitsu100: elfYay
Kinetic_Gibbon: the clue is its the only liught not flickering
NomenNeminis: "We have determined that you can use Google, oh wise man." Kappa
Kinetic_Gibbon: yeah its very obtuse
iDigDoug2: The clue is SCAN AND WHIP EVERYTHING.
AnaGoesNuts: lamulana 2 wasnt that bad, got allmost through blind
AnaGoesNuts: on this one was stuck in so many levels thegeekRip
CoyoteSans: The problem is to never attack recklessly on screens with Eyes of Retribution.
Juking_is_Rude: I got stuck on lamulana 2 because I couldnt find where osiris was, plannign on replaying and writing down every room/tablet
Orastes subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 66 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Orastes! (Today's storm count: 7)
yomidian: yeah, lm2 is considerably kinder in _most_ of its puzzle design
aitsu100: as much if not more than water levels
iDigDoug2: The secret of La-Mulana is: find something that is suspicious and/or unsuspicious, whip it, try every item on it, try every weapon on it, push it from the left, push it from the right, try to put a weight on it, try to enter it, whip it, do everything else you can think of to it, wait, leave, come back later, and start over.
yomidian: apply every possible verb to most surfaces
iDigDoug2: And then you win!
RealWormbo: a mimic?
CoyoteSans: The devs consider giving up on the game in frustration a valid ending, yes.
Kinetic_Gibbon: you can safely open that chest with a shuriken btw
Kinetic_Gibbon: if you want to show it
yomidian: ICE WIZARDS...........
adi_pie: I have to say, I've always heard this game as being punishingly hard. But thus far it seems fairly okay overall.
yomidian: to be fair, adi, this is a guided tour
NomenNeminis: For the Gate of Illusion, do they ever put one-way doors that open in the opposite way that they are marked?
Juking_is_Rude: frontside isa monument to their life, backside is a monument to their death
CoyoteSans: Also, you have to solve like 3/5 of this area's puzzles before you get the grail tablet.
TXC2: the OG is from 2005, this remake is from 2011
NomenNeminis: adi_pie Also, this is not a blind playthrough. This would be worse, I feel.
iDigDoug2: SoStylish
adi_pie: That is perfectly possible. People generally don't append a commentary on whether they are talking about the original or the remake.
iDigDoug2: The tablet there is a hint about the shop.
adi_pie: This is all mostly to say that I'm tempted to play this myself at some point. It seems fairly charming.
NomenNeminis: What are these winged monsters?
Juking_is_Rude: @adi_pie its unbelievably hard. Some of the things you are required to do you literally need galaxy brain level thinking to solve on your own. Technically everything you need to do is written somewhere, but they are usually so cryptic thats where the difficulty comes from
Kinetic_Gibbon: fun fact about that shield. if you buy it if you look on the equipment screen when you have it equipped you can see a crack in it
yomidian: fun fact: these hot springs are affected by scalesphere, if you don't have it when you use them it'll still heal you but if you go in at 1hp you die first
NomenNeminis: They look like something Hieronymus Bosch would paint.
Pal_Friendpatine: They look like winged waterbears with no faces
CoyoteSans: That's a hot spring... that's so hot it hurts you if you don't drop that ice block.
BearPsychologist: wow that's dirty
aitsu100: ah i see we also Ice Dab
PlusDY: I didn't expect this much dabbing tbh
Kinetic_Gibbon: no even if you drop the ice into it if you dont have the scalesphere it hurts you and heals you at the same time so if you go in at 1 hp you die
Kinetic_Gibbon: its more relevent in the randomizer
yomidian: randomizer means you learn some weird things about corner cases that never apply in the normal logic
yomidian: the randomizer for this game is actually super well done
NomenNeminis: Is that a mod?
iDigDoug2: This game randomizes really well.
Kinetic_Gibbon: yes theres a la mulana randomizer and it owns
aitsu100: id love that
Kinetic_Gibbon: theres even an option to randomize the entrances
TXC2: that seems like a Real double edged sword
CoyoteSans: I'm not sure I could stand la mulana randomizer, I imagine you just get so many impossible seeds.
yomidian: nah, @CoyoteSans the logic is very good
Kinetic_Gibbon: the logic checks for if you can complete the seed
Kinetic_Gibbon: so it can take a bit to generate one that works but you dont get many softlocked seeds
yomidian: yeah, ff6 rando is a good time
kumatsu: A couple days ago there was a stream where there was a Link to the Past/Super Metroid randomizer where all items were spread across SEVEN PLAYERS linked together
yomidian: my favorites are always the random cast abilities that have a 1/16 chance of being meltdown
aitsu100: i love the Final Fantasy Randos FF1 is prob my fav
Juking_is_Rude: oh look the hint to the thing we just did
yomidian: ff4 free enterprise is also really good
TXC2: kumatsu that seems....excessive
yomidian: it basically turns ff4 into an open-world game
EricTheOrange: Get General leo's shock ability and just like 1 shot every random battle.
Juking_is_Rude: I got to grave really early, you can go there from frontside of temple of sun after the boss
kumatsu: @TXC2 It's still in alpha, they were stress testing the tech
kumatsu: You can open a chest and find say, the hookshot for another player
kumatsu: so that other player would receive the item
aitsu100: basically all the enterences are shuffled and split between the 2 games
CoyoteSans: That two block puzzle... doesn't one of the two solution lock you out of early grail tablet?
zyrconium: Have we talked about the LttPxMetroid Randomizer yet?
TXC2: that sounds like something we should have for CTS or LRRLAN
Juking_is_Rude: I think thats a hint to the seesaw puzzle
kumatsu: @TXC2 Maybe, the randomization logic has a fair amount of relying on knowing about some minor bugs
NomenNeminis: Rubies are just red sapphires, though.
yomidian: my favorite thing about remake version of that puzzle is that there's a really simple guideline you can never unsee
yomidian: which completely invalidates it
Ardavio: Oh hey yomidian, thanks for the gift sub! I have no idea how Twitch works or what subs mean but it said I got it from you xD
yomidian: the round objects go on one, the non-round objects go on the other, lemeza is not round
Juking_is_Rude: @LoadingReadyRun to answer your question from before, you can get to grave from temple of the sun after you beat a certain number of bosses
Juking_is_Rude: oh, I just beat them in order lol
TXC2: Ardavio being subbed means you can use this channel's emotes
NomenNeminis: Loadingreadyrun So what did knocking that "eye" out do for us?
Ardavio: :O awesome lrrSPOOP
iDigDoug2: <message deleted>YOU BROKE THE PUZZLE!
iDigDoug2: <message deleted>NOW YOU'LL NEVER SOLVE IT!
TXC2: easy on the all caps there
NomenNeminis: Ardavio The channel also gets some of the money that yomidian paid for the sub.
CoyoteSans: o hai, troll puzzle
EricTheOrange: In my time playing this game I pretty much brute forced all the puzzles through trial and erroe
NomenNeminis: I can confirm that there is a way to do this puzzle without the double-jump.
NomenNeminis: But it's janky.

iDigDoug2: What if the floor were lava?
Kinetic_Gibbon: yes this is inferno caverns backside
TXC2: so which ancient mythology created this advanced factory then?
CoyoteSans: Presumably, this place taps into Inferno Cavern for geothermal energy.
iDigDoug2: The giants made it.
Juking_is_Rude: the giants built pretty much everything iirc
CoyoteSans: Most of the stuff in La-Mulana is either already there, or giantsdidit.
TXC2: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: stuff
NomenNeminis: Here's the solution to that block puzzle if anyone's curious. You do push the top block down first, then do this:
yomidian: I'm still thinking like LM2 where [mumble mumble]
CoyoteSans: Eg-Lana is where the other races went nuts.
