TehAmelie: wait, that zigzag symbol everywhere is a lot like Gut's demon brand
Laserbeaks_Fury: You feel BAD about DYING
tastymcnuggett: I like that the more you die, the easier to beat the boss it gets
TehAmelie: okay, a little like it
atlas624: @TehAmelie A lot of people have been pointing that out. I'm not sure if its intentional, but it definitely FEELS intentional
BrowneePoints: It's a Alex, playing a Pixel-Souls
madmictlan: @TehAmelie I was thinking the exact same thing
atlas624: More like Pixel-Berserk-Souls

Pandoras_Mox: Why did you do that for, Alex?
TehAmelie: the word "bloodbath" has taken on a disturbing new meaning today
atlas624: That.....was a lot more metal than just collecting the bosses soul
mmsword: Mr. Bucket. He's buckets of fun.
therisingtithes_: not sure that's how you take communion, brother
blackwlf: Have to lubricate the helmet somehow. Thing chafes something fierce.

Anubis169: ohh that's a badass rope mask
RealGamerCow: This game is some real Seventh Seal vibe
flapjacksofwar: Pointy Hat Game is on point
blackwlf: So, does his head stop at the normal place, or does it fill the hat?
Mivair: Consider: Church hierarchy is decided by who has the pointiest hat
Anubis169: blackwlf: No clue, they could be like Beldar Conehead under there
Pandoras_Mox: I don't get it
Metric_Furlong: kinky
tastymcnuggett: @blackwlf it fills the hat. Its not metal but standing straight up
thraximore: 1. Middle school
TehAmelie: that's probably what "pontifex" means
flapjacksofwar: EXTERMINATUS

unusuallylargemoth: ohmigosh it's Alex! Hi alex!
Djshire: Alex, your hair is fab btw
unusuallylargemoth generates generic fan noises.
Djshire: Is this game about beating a dead horse?

Vanbael: you got baby
AmeliaR: You found: a baby
Pteraspidomorphi: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 22:01.

blackwlf: Free the babies! Wait, is this Michael Jackson Moonwalker now?
AmeliaR: It's hollow Knight grubs but people
Pteraspidomorphi: Oh, coincidence
Laserbeaks_Fury: This game is definitely trying to capture that Crucifixion vibe and they absolutely nailed it. Kappa
TheExactSame: I think there's a cream for that
Djshire: Laserbeaks_Fury lol

thraximore: Tristram?

Djshire: A sewer level?!?!?!
TehAmelie: this cistern is desecrated with poop. we need some holy shit
Vanbael: what's the worse that could happen?

Vyous: The thing in the top right?
Izandai: I don't mind farming if the associated gameplay is inherently engaging.
prince_infidel: Some people like farming...but we don't talk to them...
BadAtStuff: One of my friends loves to grind in games. I do not, and never will, understand why. But hey, who am I to say he's having fun wrong?
GlennSeto: Well, you can spend the points the accumulate on stuff and getting that stuff all at once could incentivize farming. But the game is very content with letting you just get enough by bumbling around.
TehAmelie: they built a dam around Blighttown, finally
wildpeaks: was watching a few Wow classic streams and that game sure seems to have a lot of farming
Anubis169: lrrSPOOP MAHP?
BadAtStuff: The thing turned to a y briefly
richard_ermen: I think there was a context button for the glowing thingy
PleaseOneTime: I enjoy farming in games about farming or grinding. When a game is desgined around the idea that you will be farming and tries to make that fun, it can be fun. Farming in games that aren't about farming is often tedious

Clench_Eastwood: this is some of the better animation Ive seen in pixel art in a while
TehAmelie: have you seen the cutscenes?
Clench_Eastwood: not yet
TehAmelie: they're toight
Crad0k: i don't know that i'd call this pixel art, i'd just call it... art
ritchards: this is the same studio that previously did Last Door, a point and click horror (pixel) game
neacon: so is this like pixelated dark souls?
Anubis169: nah it's got a lot of influence from the souls series, but it's more metroid-like :)
Pteraspidomorphi: reminds me of salt and sanctuary
Anubis169: and salt and... yeah that
Clench_Eastwood: ya, Im not sure if this is techically pixal art or not. I dont know what defines something as pixal art
TehAmelie: we might as well call it a Salt & Sanctuarylike
silenceaux: Is there fast travel betwixt save points
Clench_Eastwood: looks awesome though
richard_ermen: But...but..SotN was....easier?
Izandai: @Anubis169 The Dark Souls of Metroidvanias? katesSass
neacon: ok, low res 2d dark souls, whatever
northos: worth noting that the souls series itself had a lot of inspiration from metroidvania games, so this is sort of full circle haha
Taveena: Isn't Dark Souls just as much a polygonal Castlevania-
GlennSeto: Plus this game is extremely light on Souls elements.
BadAtStuff: I mean, a good amount of people haven't played symphony of the night.
r10pez10: in love with the sound design
Djshire: Well, this is a Metrodvania
Wicker_Knight has only played a promo demo of symphony of the night >_>
RockPusher: Dark Souls - the original metroidvania lrrBEEJ
Homarid_Strike_The_Power: Dark Souls: A 3D Symphony of the Night
mmsword: Bonk
PleaseOneTime: I've always heard these style of games (2D action platformers with a single interconnected world) called "metroidvania" games.
RaklarLS: is it rogue-like as well, like dead cells?
Clench_Eastwood: Im guessing thats Latin for "You Died"
BrowneePoints: I mean, Dark Souls is a permutation of the Metroidvania,
mmsword: It is not a Rougelike.
Metric_Furlong: RaklarLS doesn't seem to be
Anubis169: Izandai: I tend not to use the term 'Metroidvania' due to... Castlevania being inspired by Metroid, Castlevania itself (and the dev's said so) takes a lot of inspiration from Metroid
BadAtStuff: Metroidvania is a decent term though sometimes you do have to split between the two.
Clench_Eastwood: You Diedicus
BrowneePoints: Uh...why wouldn't they like it? Metroid and Castlevania literally INVENTED THE GENRE!
richard_ermen: I remember playing Metroid on the original Game Boy, but not on the NES because I was a toddler back when that one was new
GlennSeto: The storytelling is very Souls-like, but that's bit of a different area of discussion.
Clench_Eastwood: Im not ok with whatever those things are
korvys: Describing games based on what games they draw from can be limiting, but often useful.
Amentur: I know one person that doesn't like the term since Castlevania is derived from Metroid
SquareDotCube: Rondo of Blood was semi-linear
CataclysmicReverb: Action/Adventure, since Adventure used to be a descriptor for exploration as a core mechnic?
RaklarLS: it seems very... christian.
Homarid_Strike_The_Power: Roguelike includes randomness, though many do have the same gameplay style as Metroisvania..
Crad0k: i really hate the term 'metroidvania', because it means that you have to have knowledge of two other games - neither of which have had any games released in at least ten years - to know what it means
BrowneePoints: Symphony was the first exploration one
Djshire: Clench_Eastwood because they have...split personalities? :D
BrowneePoints: (don't quote me on that)
neacon: also metroid didnt have naked cut in half people throwing razor blade boomerangs at you....
Izandai: I thought Symphony of the Night was the Castlevania generally meant when people talk about a Metroidvania.
richard_ermen: @RaklarLS It´s spanish, so catholic imagery is a given
MirandaArqayla: Simon's Quest is the first like that if you want to get weird about it
GlennSeto: Yeah, you're thinking of Symphony... which is actually fairly linear.
wildpeaks: nice combo
silenceaux: Combo'd
Djshire: Alex: most cite Symphony, but I go with Simon's Quest
Pteraspidomorphi: Not necessarily crad0k
TehAmelie: that guy's getting so many cheers from his buddies now
Anubis169: I like that it's unforgiving :)
r10pez10: fall damage, the most classic death
Pteraspidomorphi: You can just play two metroidvanias :p
Metric_Furlong: I remember hearing someone say once how it's kind of odd that Samus is still unusual in being a female protagonist in the genre
GlennSeto: I recently played Simon's Quest and the structural ideas were neat ... everything else just honked.
RaklarLS: @richard_ermen spanish spanish, or south american?
BadAtStuff: I mean, really, its your fault for getting in the way of their boomerang practice.
Djshire: Metric_Furlong because they're idiots?
Metric_Furlong: that was a couple of years ago though, so it might have changed
BrowneePoints: What!? Alex you should totes play one!
Wicker_Knight: the Prime series is still worth it
Izandai: @Crad0k I think that kind of etymology is acceptable when at least one of the games being referenced is such a titan of the medium.
MirandaArqayla: Simon's Quest is certainly a product of its time. Ambitious, but there's a lot we've learned about game design since then
richard_ermen: @RaklarLS Spanish spanish, as in from Spain.
NightValien28: we don't talk about other M
r10pez10: i'm here for late takes
Anubis169: first Metroid for the NES was really decent :)
Labjer: Japan!
Labjer: Well, everyone i guess
Taveena: I mean didn't they make Samus strip down to a bikini in the "good ending" of the original metroid
Djshire: the zero suit has been around since the first game, or something like it
Anubis169: eh.. didn't mind the Zero suit
Wicker_Knight: I mean, her introduction as a female character was sexualizing her (the swimsuit avatar for completing within a certain time)
Vyous: I mean, the unfortunate thing is 100%ing the first metroid put her in a bikini, so that ship sorta sailed from the start, which sucks :(
Homarid_Strike_The_Power: Zero Suit: For people who don't find a woman in full power armor sexy.
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun well, the zero suit isn't awful, but JESUS don't play Other M. it's the most sexist, patronizing writing for samus and it's AWFUL
silenceaux: Those little motes are definitely gonna be something later. (I have not played this game)
Izandai: Doesn't Samus wear a crop top and bootyshorts if you 100% Super Metroid?
Taveena: Not that sexualizing her is a GOOD thing
GlennSeto: Right there with ya. Zero Mission, Fusion and Other M all have icky bits of revisionism about them.
Djshire: Taveena for beating the game under 3 hours, yes
Taveena: but it's. also not a new thing. u_u
TehAmelie: Super Metroid still holds up. has a weirdly active modding community
Feminine_Desires: Other M is entirely based off of the manga/comic ...

RockPusher: do they have a chitinous exoskeleton?
Myrdin90: if I know my etroidvanias, the stuff motes are probably platformes or double jump points or something, for later
Crad0k: Izandai except not necessarily, i hadn't heard of either until i played the first smash in 2000, and like i say, they're not exactly 'current' franchises
Pteraspidomorphi: Brutal
Metric_Furlong: Djshire I think it was a comment on how male protags are/were at the time still overly common in the genre
GlennSeto: Here's something extra sad: The sexism in Metroid got extra bad in the Japanese games, after the US-developed Prime series did nothing but portray her as independent, capable and cool.
PleaseOneTime: @RockPusher There are hard and soft shelled varieties
BadAtStuff: The zero suit was cool in zero mission, but its inclusion in other stuff in the series is ... not so good.
BrowneePoints: You should do a Metroid game on Play it Forward sometime Alex! Metroid also translated to 3D very well!
wildpeaks: the "bad women anatomy" one is quite hilarious too
wildpeaks: onwards, to adventure of course
mmsword: Fun fact: These saw enemies are based on a classic Christian matyrs who were sawed in half.
BrowneePoints: Like...now that I think of it....Metroid adapted to 3d surprisingly well...
silenceaux: The last time I replayed Metroid Prime, I felt like the control scheme had aged poorly, though the core concept was still good.
Izandai: @Crad0k Sure there's people who haven't even heard of Metroid, but that doesn't mean it isn't a titan of the medium. I'm sure that most people who've heard the term "Metroidvania" have enough familiarity with Metroid and/or Castlevania to have some idea of what the term means.
GlennSeto: Oh yeah, the Metroid Prime trilogy is excellent and a Switch release HAS to be right around the corner ... right? Right?!
Myrdin90: mmsworld holy goddamn!
TehAmelie: take all guilt onto yourself to make the world more rewarding to be in. that's how it works right?
BrowneePoints: Metroid Prime 3 suffers a bit from over-escalation a bit, and Metroid Prime 2 can be a bit brutal, but those games are still really solid
TehAmelie: mechanically?
GlennSeto: @BrowneePoints Agreed.
mmsword: Simon the Zealot is the most notable of said matyrs. There are wood cuts of this.
MirandaArqayla: as far as "flying heads what try to kill you" go, these aren't too bad
Izandai: @silenceaux I had an opportunity to pick up the first Metroid Prime a while back. I put it down two minutes later when I realized there was no way to aim vertically.
Metric_Furlong: Djshire I don't really follow the genre enough to know if that's an 'idiotic' statement or not. it sounded in-line with what I've seen as games as a whole, but could be different in that specific instance
RaklarLS: i like the design of the main character. somewhere between a conquistador and the garments from the holy week
silenceaux: Izandai I could swear there is, but it's really unintuitive?
GlennSeto: Got there.
neacon: so is your characters name beldar? he has that whole conehead thing going for him
wildpeaks: saved \o/
Izandai: @silenceaux There was none at all that I could find aside from targeting.
silenceaux: Like you have to hold a shoulder button or something
cynimo: good night Alex, good night chat.
Anubis169: night cynimo!
Izandai: Like, you could target enemies above you to shoot them, but so far as I could tell there was no way to freely look up.
ExhaustedElox: Hey, what up, Alex :)
Izandai: Long story short: I'm really hoping that rumored Prime Trilogy Remaster for Switch becomes a reality.
ExhaustedElox: I've been curious about this game, thoughts so far?
Crad0k: Izandai a genre name should be self explanatory, or at least relatively neutral; it's why 'doom clone' isn't used anymore, because that means you have to know what doom is
BrowneePoints: @Izandai i'm fairly sure that z or right shoulder let's you look up

SleepyDeveloper: that bell sound never gets old
silenceaux: Izandai Either way, the control scheme was lacking compared to modern console FPS games, and that made it drastically worse to play as you experienced.
havtorn_: @Crad0k That's not why Doom clone isn't used, it's because it became a term so broad it was useless
silenceaux: oh.
wildpeaks: oh wow
Izandai: @BrowneePoints You could be right. I bounced pretty hard once I realized you couldn't just use the C-stick to do it, so I might not've actually experimented that much.
GlennSeto: I didn't wanna say anything. XD
Pteraspidomorphi: Openworldsidescrollike?
BrowneePoints: @Izandai i'm fairly sure it's z or a shoulder button
ExhaustedElox: Cutscenes?!
GlennSeto: It really is.
Taveena: What did you say about my cracked ass
Coinman1863: Pointy Hat man has a new sword
BrowneePoints: There's a lot of Gothic Christian motifs going on and i'm so confused
Anubis169: btw, never read tvtropes if you want to continue to enjoy something you like... everybody gets too involved in cross-referencing tropes to just step back and enjoy the piece

ExhaustedElox: Interesting...
NightValien28: lol
NightValien28: BUT now we can get OP
Izandai: katesLol
MirandaArqayla: one of my favorite bits about this game is that the sword is named Mea Culpa
GlennSeto: Eventually everything.
SleepyDeveloper: the my bad statues danDerp
therisingtithes_: wait, what happened?
BrowneePoints: like, your sword is TOTALLY a reference to the Crown of Thorns
GlennSeto: But two upgrades are on the pricey side.
RaklarLS: the power of the Mea Culpa, that's so good haha
brainbosh: Everytime they say "The Penitent One" I flash back to Jones.
northos: isn't the character literally wearing a crown of thorns?
TehAmelie: a helmet of steel and thorns and blood

havtorn_: A dunce-hat of thorns
RaklarLS: a crown of thornes and a pointy hat from the penitent ones during the holy week
Anubis169: ooooooo charge attack
brainbosh: Closer to a dunce cap of thorns, tho?
Metric_Furlong: this game's imagery is a lot of things, but 'subtle' isn't really one of them Kappa
wildpeaks: this looks ominous
Izandai: @Crad0k People stopped using "Doom clone" because the FPS genre diversified drastically to the point that if it was still in use, we would likely be calling games that have almost nothing in common with Doom, like Portal and Slime Rancher, "Doom clones". The games captured under the umbrella of "Metroidvania", on the other hand, share several core gameplay elements (exploration, upgrades, etc.)
wildpeaks: oh, fast travel ?
BrowneePoints: @northos idk about the hat, but the thorns on the sword are very much modeled after renaissance painting of the Crown of Thorns
RaklarLS: the only thing that's missing is his back being flayed
therisingtithes_: I was about to ask why the save points weren't bonfires, but I guess it's because fast travel has to be *anotherr* ominous image instead
northos: @BrowneePoints yeah in the cutscene it looked like there was a ring of thorns around the base of the hat. but certains thorns all over the aesthetic, heh
silenceaux: Oh, that's actually really useful.
GlennSeto: Yep, you're taken care of.
MirandaArqayla: indulgences as a mechanic is great
Metric_Furlong: bonfires are more for heresy than blasphemy, iirc
Despoiler98: WELP
ExhaustedElox: We Castlevania now, boys!
wildpeaks: good ol' spikes
FireBasilisk53: man, F those candle sticks
silenceaux: There was a similar feature in Hollow Knight that I never made use of, but in this one I can see it being a bit more useful.
r10pez10: is it the ominous hum
RaklarLS: i wonder if getting the stigmatas is the ultimate upgrade
SquareDotCube: I wonder, what upgrade is "more jumps"
wildpeaks: but do they have wall meat
BrowneePoints: Hollow Knight is one of the best Metroidvanias ever. If you disagree, i love you, but fite me
BadAtStuff: Guilt, indulgences, pits full of spikes. This really is just a simulation of being catholic.
TehAmelie: now we just need parsley and sage
r10pez10: wall meat
GlennSeto: No one will know.
ContingentCat: delicious and nutritious wall meat

TheThromborax: Alex do you care about Deadly Premonition 2? is that up your alley?
Myrdin90: metroidvania
BadAtStuff: Not to back seat, but you could interact with that window back there.

Izandai: I guess the uvula probably isn't the weirdest part of a saint's body to be preserved as a holy relic.
RaklarLS: quite common for preachers
tehfewl: fun fact: cutting out the uvula can be a treatment for sleep apnea
r10pez10: yes real life is somehow weirder in that regard
ZeroArchaic: in italy there's the foreskin of a saint
ZeroArchaic: in a chapel
TehAmelie: nah i think the weirdest part is that lady's seventh head
ZeroArchaic: don't remember which or which saint
wildpeaks: BabyRage
Izandai: I wonder if this game calls the angel babies cherubs or puttos.
TehAmelie: everyone's probably seen that Qi episode where you learn of the saint who canonically had seven heads at one point
ExhaustedElox: Good, gotta drink that Estus, I mean, healing potion.
TheThromborax: I love how even the sun in the sky looks deformed
ExhaustedElox: Dammit!
Metric_Furlong: TehAmelie +1 point for the 'canonically' pun
Crad0k: TehAmelie points for the use of the original meaning of the word 'canon' :-p
TehAmelie: double score!
GlennSeto: I hear Commodore Hustle is coming along.
I_Am_Clockwork: heyho friends
thraximore: I think that's the thing in the basement
thraximore: Collecting body parts and such
silenceaux: A divine winch...?
thraximore: I've never played so I don't know for certain
Izandai: Better than a divine wench.
RaklarLS: does the death screen change if you get killed vs falling somewhere? it'd make sense to be excommunicated from killing yourself, but not being killed, right?
GlennSeto: Can you imagine Simon's Quest had been this deep in religious themes ... Nintendo would have dropkicked it into the Pacific.
wildpeaks: uhh
RaklarLS: yooo
thraximore: Is this the ninth circle?
Izandai: huh
Despoiler98: UM
northos: katesWat
TehAmelie: and then the world ended
TheThromborax: uh
r10pez10: ariamis
wildpeaks: well this is not terrifying at all
TheThromborax: come on twitch why are you doing this tome
I_Am_Clockwork: statuesm'n
Alephred: Trick or treat, smell my feet.
RaklarLS: oh, it's the homeless man who got his feet washed by jesus
Despoiler98: uuuuuuhhhh ok?
starlitdiscord: woah
r10pez10: ???
GlennSeto: "Also the vacuous spider over there is getting real uppity, so hurry it up."
The_Ninjurai: Why does this sound like Beej to me?
RaklarLS: yeah, this game is definitely spanish.
Serpens77: ok, there's... a lot ot unpack here
Despoiler98: *burp*
thraximore: Neat
I_Am_Clockwork: Forbidden Confessions, so those obtained in a way that's inadmissable in court?
thraximore: Insight gained
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: so you're saying this is a particularly salty sanctuary?
wildpeaks: ohh, neat
Izandai: huh
Anubis169: ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa... manLOL
TehAmelie: does the church care about dreamt sins? i mean it wouldn't surprise me
sing_o_muse: yay. thought sins
r10pez10: if this just makes the entire map scream...
I_Am_Clockwork: oh hey G
Despoiler98: G MONEY
Metric_Furlong: hey Graham
BrowneePoints: It's a Grahamdsome man!
TehAmelie: it's the holy Graham
RaklarLS: well, this is an extreme version of whatever sin is
Anubis169: hihi Graham lrrAWESOME
Dog_of_Myth: Hi Graham
I_Am_Clockwork: yeah we did a Heresy or som'it
starlitdiscord: woaaah
Driosenth: a heresy occured
TehAmelie: i feel the frames are somewhat generous here
Despoiler98: Heresy Happened
GlennSeto: It's not that bad ... I can do it and I regularly fuck up ripostes in Souls.
Lord_ZYRK: frame-close-enough parry
thraximore: Souls ripostes are a nightmare
thraximore: Sounds like a Souls game
Izandai: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:55:27.
GlennSeto: But you made it through and that's kinda cool.
northos: Alex went to the cypt first :P
TehAmelie: you did beat up that ghost clone miniboss guy way over your level at least
thraximore: blood
ZeroArchaic: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 13:29:53. lrrSPOT
silenceaux: Divine Bile or something
Crad0k: TehAmelie not really; it matters less what's in your mind as it does weather or not you act on it; so thinking bad thoughts isn't a sin, and involuntary thoughts such as dreams equally so; it does, however, depend on the exact flavour of church you belong to, though, some are stricter on thoughts than others
thraximore: This is true
thraximore: Didn't say it was bad; I absolutely adore Dark Souls
I_Am_Clockwork: you don't call shooters a "Doom thing"
BadAtStuff: It stops being a thing once dark souls fades from the collective memory
Izandai: O.o
ContingentCat: katesRip
Serpens77: it's ok, he was a sinner or whatever
r10pez10: AUGH
havtorn_: So, is there some significance to the fact that this is where we all the female enemies are? Apart from Dugtrio
Metric_Furlong: it's like when "wasd + mouselook" became a general thing, rather than game specific
TehAmelie: they're Brutal Doom grade executions too
silenceaux: I'm actually really curious what the ur-example of "dying leaves behind a resource, make it back there to grab it" is because it's a good one.
thraximore: haha no worries
SquareDotCube: That man is jelly now.
GlennSeto: You mean they're difficult to execute? Kappa
ghostvalv: lrrHORN
Izandai: This is the Dark Souls of Metroidvanias. katesSass
ContingentCat: wow big hat
Despoiler98: Hes very large
r10pez10: the face on that door
F1SHOR: I mean soulslike is just a description now like metroidvenia though people do use it rather broadly
Anubis169: Now that's a sturdy lookin' door
Vyous: Unfortunately, G missed the close-up of this guy
blackwlf: RIGID
Anubis169: hobbW
wench_tacular: phrasing?
BrowneePoints: I thought he said Sculpted Pokiness
blackwlf: His rigid staff of justice.
GlennSeto: I'm two bear asses in and still not sure WHY we do it.
RaklarLS: i wonder if there's a representation of the "oh hey, he's all the unspeakable stuff we did in the americas"
TheThromborax: that guy is pack one pick one in the Hat Draft
Mitchellsocks: Yall praise the lord?
prince_infidel: Graham! Do a rant! I love a Graham talk
TehAmelie: the people here seem to treat statues as literal gods. . .and sometimes they speak
Oliin: I mean, we still use 'metroidvania' for this style of back and forth map exploration after all these years. I expect 'souls-like' will probably stick around for a bit.
I_Am_Clockwork: the games astheticc on POINT
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun Watched Adam play it yesterday? ish. And it is really well made
GlennSeto: With a noble lady on the shoulder.
Despoiler98: Dont Kinkshame
GlennSeto: DAMN
TehAmelie: "/me slaps you around a bit with a large moose"
Izandai: sorry what
BadAtStuff: I don't want to kinkshame, but maybe don't involve a dead elk
Metric_Furlong: !clip
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
Serpens77: This game certainly has Some Imagery(tm)
silenceaux: They outlawed face-sitting because it was too powerful of a combination in melee range
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: called a Doomclone until Quake came out, then they were Quakeclones
BadAtStuff: It's not genre defining until the genre exists.
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun yea we talked about that in chat earlier Graham lol
Anubis169: There were a few legit Doom Clones... Hexen for example
SquareDotCube: Autochess got lucky in its genre naming
Rioxcon: I really hope it's all about being a mail man
RaklarLS: i love the shield is just a headless priest praying
northos: "dark-souls clone" also doesn't yet have a more descriptive genre tag in the way that "first person shooter" is for "Doom clone"
I_Am_Clockwork: sword hearts!
northos: and I don't know what that genre tag would be
Mitchellsocks: I was not expecting Death Stranding to have Farm Simulator vibes when it comes to relaxation level, but it seems to
Metric_Furlong: Izandai outlawed in porn produced there, technically
magicwiz: is pre pre release for mtg next week ?
ContingentCat: @magicwiz yup next friday
sing_o_muse: Lore!
magicwiz: k
I_Am_Clockwork: longer pary frames, but longer recovery?
TehAmelie: the sword is called Mea Culpa. maybe the worst name of anything to be stabbed with
Vyous: Is this the work of a blocking stand? Kappa
BadAtStuff: @magicwiz Next friday I believe.
Pteraspidomorphi: Ah, materia
silenceaux: shunk
Izandai: @Metric_Furlong ...Is that because it's also known as "queening"?
Stoffern: Our character is called the penitent one?
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
I_Am_Clockwork: spike are no joke
thraximore: seabatPIT
NightValien28: oh alex
theneatestburrito: Pit count: ???
prince_infidel: Spike!
GlennSeto: My first instinct was also to not equip it, lest I fuck up my routine with the harder block.
Anubis169: Oh yeah Graham, this game is really unforgiving lrrAWESOME
wildpeaks: there are many games trying different things, they just rarely get the marketing budget that Kojima has
sing_o_muse: We are the Penitent One wielding a sword named Mea Culpa
RaklarLS: @Stoffern yep, even has the appropriate pointy hat
Metric_Furlong: Izandai that was not an official reason given
ghostvalv: lrrGREED
Izandai: @Metric_Furlong Uh huh.
GlennSeto: Also apparently you gain less money while guilty.
Despoiler98: YAY Catholicism
thraximore: Oh man they got Indulgences in this game? I love that flavor
I_Am_Clockwork: I accidentally broke all the indulgence statues before I knew what they were :(
thraximore: Historical mechanics, yay
Vyous: Yeah, you gain less money for each guilt shard in the world.
BrowneePoints: I mean..the travel time back is a penalty itself
TehAmelie: the flavor is X-treme
thraximore: guilt and shame are ever so slightly distinct
Vyous: Another neat flip side is that getting back guilt shards heals you and gives you mana back.
Izandai: katesLol
sing_o_muse: F
silenceaux: incredible
Anubis169: LOL
F1SHOR: benginLol benginLol
RaklarLS: aaaaand reel.
thraximore: for example... you should be ashamed now.
Pteraspidomorphi: Nice
Darleysam: hey highlights
tehcrashxor: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 14:17:30. lrrSPOT
prince_infidel: Damn!
wench_tacular: spikes, the ultimate nemesis
Anubis169: The guilt persists...
ghostvalv: lrrSPOOP
The_Ninjurai: Are there different weapons and armors in this game?
starlitdiscord: so much guilt
TehAmelie: hmm could you strategically die to leave guilt shards in boss fights?
NicTMagic: somebody clip that
Serpens77: Graham should see the BLOOD HAT sequence
Stoffern: What actually IS a calvary? other than misspelled cavalry?
Anubis169: Nicely done :D
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: as someone who is terminally shit at 2d action platformers but loved Salt & Sanctuary and Death's Gambit, I can't wait to be bad at this one too
thraximore: Calvary is a place
DoodlestheGreat: Well, like Graham said... https://clips.twitch.tv/FragileObservantDadNononoCat
r10pez10: the sun lag in your eyes
Robot_Bones: Oh I thought that was the tree LUL
Izandai: @Stoffern Golgotha, or Calvary was, according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem's walls where Jesus was crucified.
I_Am_Clockwork: I love hat your sword is called Mea Culpa
Izandai: - Wikipedia
GlennSeto: um...
wildpeaks: in game or in the moonbase ? :D
Stoffern: Thanks Izandai
I_Am_Clockwork: are u ok, tree man?
ContingentCat: yikes
Izandai: @Stoffern np
Anubis169: oh jebus
frostownik: wrenn and sticks
RaklarLS: oh hey, it's saint sebastian
MirandaArqayla: everyone in this game is just having a real good time
Anubis169: Gémino took more than an arrow to the knee there... what in the world...
r10pez10: i mean i'm still fretting
Izandai: "I used to be a sinner like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee."
RaklarLS: it has to be right? he's the one that got arrowed
Vanbael: nobody is ok in this world it seems
therisingtithes_: why are so many of these NPCs so LORGE
TehAmelie: sometimes everybody hurts
Lord_ZYRK: therisingtithes_ because they're so full of sin
Anubis169: to atlantis! manGRY manFIST
GlennSeto: Other than the indulgent animation?
thraximore: This is true
Mysticman89: there is no more adam savidan, only boshy.
justshay99: is LRR planning for PAX South next year?
I_Am_Clockwork: small slide then stops
Vanbael: there's is a little initial slip
Anubis169: ohh that's interesting
I_Am_Clockwork: I much prefer that to wall jumping
TehAmelie: the game makes you count the XP points for each kill manually if you want to track what they're worth. apparently it changes with your guilt too
northos: I read that as "intense" garlic lol
ContingentCat: tasty cave garlic
Vanbael: getting all the herbs and spices
justshay99: that is fantastic news thank you
blackwlf: Garlic, olive oil, rosemary. . . you're making some good pasta sauce.
Anubis169: used for making incense casserole
Anubis169: manYES
RealGamerCow: Trio of Dougs.
RaklarLS: huh, he's self flagellating
TehAmelie: that hole has magnets in it
ContingentCat: welp
TehAmelie: which our giant hat can't escape
I_Am_Clockwork: this game def does the thing where there are areas you can't treverse until you have found an item that unlocks them. Very Castlevania
ContingentCat: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You should buy the fiber protection plan.
timiam: !next

Izandai: There's definitely at least one saint who got his nipples turned into relics.
Anubis169: btw can I point out the beautiful piano in the OST for this game?
timiam: oh damn I didn't see this go live
northos: D:
I_Am_Clockwork: Blasphemous, A game about weaponizing catholic guilt into blood based super powers
theneatestburrito: Yeah, wonderful soundtrack. Love the Spanish guitar, too.
Earthenone: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 4:20 PM
timiam: Is this a good game? I never know when it's Graham and Alex
TehAmelie: you'll get some item to untie knots would be my guess
havtorn_: I don't know about them having a lot of fun, tbh. What I've heard from the writer makes me think he takes himself _very_ seriously.
I_Am_Clockwork: all while looking rad af
Crad0k: man, i have missed watching the two of you streaming 'normal' games
RockPusher: foxmarFIRE
RaklarLS: bye la llorona
Anubis169: travLIGHT it's lit
timiam: it looks very cool
TehAmelie: the peaks are dead?
VTMonster: This is a very on brand game for Alex
I_Am_Clockwork: or is it where mountains are buried?
I_Am_Clockwork: dead mountains
TehAmelie: good drift
BadAtStuff: "just throw the bodies on the mountain. It'll sort itself out."
GlennSeto: The Penitent One just cries "Harder!" and all the enemies get really uncomfortable.
I_Am_Clockwork: corpsed mountains
Vanbael: shop?
therisingtithes_: don't you need those cage babies for something?
I_Am_Clockwork: ooh darksouls refference ahaead
Anubis169: What're ya buyin'? travBUTT
TehAmelie: you know i always thought it was pronounced penichent
Aztren: Strangah
GlennSeto: @I_Am_Clockwork I thought it was one too!
Anubis169: hobbT What're ya sellin'?
Homarid_Strike_The_Power: This voice is giving me flashbacks to the Witch in the first Diablo game.
r10pez10: 'one candleabra pls' *begins crying*
RaklarLS: def +
I_Am_Clockwork: Praise the Darksouls!
RealGamerCow: I hope Alex beats a boss while GTraham is there, so he can se the helmet of blood
GlennSeto: It totally is.

silenceaux: "The vital essence of enemies"
Vanbael: why are you carrying around a uvula?
I_Am_Clockwork: the bridal thing is a quest item I think?
Izandai: @Vanbael Why wouldn't we be carrying around a uvula?
I_Am_Clockwork: I haven't found a use for it yet, but I'm a horder, and jut hoover up whatever items I find
Nenluen: it appears to be a child in that cage... o_O
Anubis169: Vanbael: We just found it somewhere :)
Lord_ZYRK: Vanbael because it was there
Izandai: They're either cherubs or puttos.
Homarid_Strike_The_Power: Cage Baby Collectibles.
theneatestburrito: Beanie Babies! They're collectible.
RaklarLS: the elevator looks like the top part of a reliquary
r10pez10: i always find it funny that in ancient lands all the mechanisms work perfectly
I_Am_Clockwork: its a ring of sacrifice
I_Am_Clockwork: once use no guilt on dying
TehAmelie: is it the only bead in the world that's never been inside someone?
r10pez10: discomfort, amelie
silenceaux: I have a guess. It's something Nice, but not blessed or sacred in any way.
I_Am_Clockwork: shortcuts!
Izandai: Shortcuts!
RaklarLS: that's a big shortcut :o
richard_ermen: The shortest cut!
morgoth_bauglyr: skylevator
I_Am_Clockwork: thank you mysterious coffee hand!
r10pez10: the elevator to the sky of albero
thraximore: Seriously, this town music sounds so much like Tristram's theme
TehAmelie: coffee is now "incense garlic"
snowcookies: !findquote shortcut
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
Vanbael: Would finishing the game without buying an indulgence be called 'Pulling a Martin Luther'?
RealGamerCow: I'm guessing you get a ranged weapon at some point
northos: Doom Metal AF
GlennSeto: Maybe a Play It Forward of this would be fun?
frostownik: there's a ranged skill on the tree
RaklarLS: no, Martin Luther is a protestant.
r10pez10: i might get this game
blackwlf: Just like in real church!
blackwlf: Oh hey, can you get that baby now?
Vanbael: oh yeah, that baby is right there
Driosenth: can you attack the cage baby when you are riding the elevator down?
RaklarLS: what do the babies do?
I_Am_Clockwork: ah but does it buy forgiveness? or merely alleviate the feeling of guilt that one feels?
Izandai: @RaklarLS Yes. He was in fact the first Protestant. Because he opposed, among other things, the selling of indulgences.
TehAmelie: is a deathless run just "literal Jesus"? case you're completely free from sin and stuff
GlennSeto: You're stuck in place during elevator rides.
blackwlf: Oh, equip your sword heart thing?
therisingtithes_: wait, did I see the map correctly? I think you still have guilt markers in the world? if so, neat
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: a "literal Jesus" run allows 1 death
I_Am_Clockwork: "sure I'm a murderous heretic, but I payed some money to a statue, so it's all good right?"
TehAmelie: of course
frostownik: you also get cash from smash now
RaklarLS: @Izandai yes, i meant it in the way that this game is aggressively catholic and spanish, so protestants would be a big no no haha
TehAmelie: but then you have to stop for 3 days
ContingentCat: @Vanbael I hope not doing indulgences can be called a protestant run
Vanbael: @ContingentCat perfect
havtorn_: So, not to be that guy, but... what's the plot here? What is our guy trying to do?
RaklarLS: no upgrades would definitely be a franciscan run though.
silenceaux: Booooones
TehAmelie: i think he wants to kill monsters to put their blood in his helmet
Serpens77: He's trying to do a penance
TehAmelie: it's unclear
Serpens77: he's the Penitent One
havtorn_: Yeah, that's about as much as I got as well
BrowneePoints: Good parallax is so good
thraximore: Whoops
silenceaux: wow splode
Izandai: oh
GlennSeto: He one-shots you.
flyingdelorion: Oofa doofa
Amentur: lrrCOW
GlennSeto: It's really not that explicit. I'm two bosses in and the character's motivation or objective are still vague at best.
I_Am_Clockwork: The Penitent man shall pass lrrBEEJ
lobiax: Story isn't always needed in a game
GlennSeto: Nah, if the plot amounts to anything, it's a nice bonus.
EndPixel5: what's the empty gauge?
Vanbael: is it a holy quest or a sacrilege quest in the end? we don't know so far
frostownik: you've unlocked some bling for the sword?
lobiax: no story is preferable to a bad story usually too
RaklarLS: wasn't there supposed to be a soul ghost thing therE?
silenceaux: Did you not leave a guilt ghost...? Odd.
seantheman2: what are we talking about here? I just got here
GlennSeto: The setting is very engrossing so far.
Vanbael: I feel like the lore in this game is good though, has a fair amount of depht
I_Am_Clockwork: The story in this game is one of my favorite kind. It meshes well with the art and gameplay mechanics, and encourages you to explore dark corners of the world and pay atention to already interesting art
markvd: but why the hat
TehAmelie: nothing makes sense but everything seems to mean something. which i'vee hard is how schizophrenia can feel
VTMonster: Everybody B hoppin
Vanbael: why not the hat?
ThirtyCubicFeetOfSalsa: DS1 being light on story worked because you were just some schmuck who fell into the whole thing by chance - a point I feel a lot of games citing it as inspiration (including 2 and 3) forget to account for
alphaman_: What are you playing on?
I_Am_Clockwork: it's used to connect already good parts of the game together without getting in the way of those pieces
RaklarLS: markvd look for pictures of the holy week in madrid or seville
GlennSeto: @TehAmelie That's disturbing, but also strangely apt for this world.
oyleslyck: RIP
I_Am_Clockwork: you have juked yourself
Amentur: Again no guilt from dying?
Kamotetop: Are we up to no good?
markvd: hmm.. some of those images are... kinda worrying
I_Am_Clockwork: @Amentur it's one of his Rosary items
Amentur: Ah
GlennSeto: Does the pearl just erase the guilt mechanic?
havtorn_: I guess I'm in the minority here for wanting some kind of motivation, but I probably would have stopped playing by now if it was just me, tbh.
silenceaux: Oh that's neat. I was sure it was another item to give to the salty foot washerman
aesir_blade: is it still there?
RaklarLS: @markvd now you know where the pointy hat comes from though
lobiax: those ripostes looked really satisfying
RaklarLS: is there a backstab mechanic?
I_Am_Clockwork: @RaklarLS no
silenceaux: Eh, if the Pearl actually does something already I wouldn't bother with a visit. I think he just makes ordinary item rewards into something special.
I_Am_Clockwork: well, there are some enemies who are armored from certain directions, but not an explicit "Backstab" mechanic like in Darksouls et al
silenceaux: *mundane items
GlennSeto: Is he ok?

WasntFuzzyWuzzy: @GlennSeto Wouldn't that just be leaving to start your own religion?
Amentur: Put up a giant sign 'No you!"
RaklarLS: end religion i guesS?
Ba_Dum_Tish: Excommunicated ALL the things
Ba_Dum_Tish: then create your own religion with blackjack
GlennSeto: Or sever everyone's connection from the divine.
CataclysmicReverb: Music's giving me some good dead cells vibes
I_Am_Clockwork: the music in this game is quite good
RaklarLS: oh hey, more pointy hats
MechaKuuga: @LoadingReadyRun I just realized the spikes were coming out of floating platforms in that last room... how that work?
GlennSeto: @MechaKuuga God works in mysterious ways?

frostownik: that's Daretti
I_Am_Clockwork: Prayers @Kamotetop
Akaiatana: He's swinging his sword at an incredible wraith!

EndPixel5: short hop double slice
I_Am_Clockwork: oooh you have guilt now
I_Am_Clockwork: something has changed
silenceaux: Okay, but is _that_ a Madoka reference
GlennSeto: I wonder if you can fix it or if it has other uses now.
RaklarLS: oh, it's like the curse stones from the other games
TehAmelie: no protection against sin is forever eh
therisingtithes_: I think it has another use in this state but can't be sure
silenceaux: I would guess you could pay to refresh it at an absolutement statue. But again, a guess.

TheOldBadger: "How many pie dad?"
NightValien28: piedad
GlennSeto: "One of them days, dad ate ten whole pies for dinner ... that's what gluttony gets ya, kids."
flyingdelorion: Graham was right, this game is metal to the bone! Awesome!
Wicker_Knight: so, is he the Ten Peaces, or the Ten Feet?
EndPixel5: oh yeah? well my dad has eleven pies!
Baldrash: I swear he's doing a John Cena "You Can't See Me" when you heal.

TheOldBadger: Pee-us? Not Pie-us?
therisingtithes_: that's not how that word's pronounced?
tehlordofelves: did that thing just say "pee-us"?
TheOldBadger: Okay. Glad it's not just me
BrowneePoints: it's Pie-us
I_Am_Clockwork: It may be the spanish or latin pronuciation
BrowneePoints: just like Piedad is Pie-uh-dad (like piety)
GlennSeto: The again, his face was slathered in yellow liquid, so pee-us might be correct after all.
MechaKuuga: Sure are a lot of Giant Bishops/Priests up in this game
havtorn_: It was pretty humiliating for Piedad
Mivair: 1 down, 2 to go!
Blasteg: is that... to do list?

GlennSeto: They put a finger in to check your level of piety.
I_Am_Clockwork: ya know... unless god's into that
