Dread_Pirate_Westley: I believe the plan was three episodes with different guests each week.
corianderd: serge is next week
RandomTrivia: (I may be imagining things)
RandomTrivia: Ah, thanks.
corianderd: there was a mistake on the schedule but we got it fixed as soon as it was noticed
RandomTrivia: It's not going to make me stop watching, of course.

letfireraindown: woo watching this again! I watched gdq all last week cause event
DAM314: hooray!! antiklAusHaHa lilbru1Raichuheart dam314Queensavannah
TehAmelie: don't fail me now, the inevitable progress of time. i can fry up these cheese sticks in under one minute, surely
kalira77: did you bring enough for everyone? or at least me? :)
TehAmelie: narrator voice: she could not
TehAmelie: hello!
noSmokeFire: hewwo
RandomTrivia: Hello!
TheWriterAleph: Afternoon, Cameron
noSmokeFire: one (1) cameron
Invitare: Cori?
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Joining us Cori-motely.
TehAmelie: Corimotely, the greatest new word of the day
Tom_Bruise: for the whole family? *looks at aphrodite* Yep. for the whole family.
Asrimal: lrrGRAHAM
mechmagic: that will be me once i clock out of work
noSmokeFire: let's get dying
bv310: This soundtrack rules so much
Ogrekidd: I always use vulkan but i dont know why maybe because its a (roman) god name seems appropriate
TheWanderingNomad: Cam you monster :(
CleeKru: Cerberus gets TOYS?????
TehAmelie: he's only a fictional dog
RandomTrivia: Thank you Cameron, we appreciate that
CleeKru: i did not know that
MrPandaaaGaming: has anyone just found the flashpoint application and has bene reliving their childhood games?
andrew: @TehAmelie Amelie your sticks
Zyme86: last time was the day before, 2021 went full 2020
CleeKru: dash dash dash dash dash!
TehAmelie: i got them, and no chat can't have any
DahudLefthanded: doomstone > butterfly ball
Invitare: Butterfly Ball isjust gotta go fast
Invitare: worst boss is the Gorgon Head, Cori is right
Invitare: on Extreme Measures anyway
Zaghrog: the gorgon head can be pretty mean, especially on extreme mesures
BlueMechanic: Mine is Theseus, not because it's a tough fight, he's just a jerk
Dread_Pirate_Westley: My experience is that you mostly get minibosses for boons; resources usually have extra/stronger regular enemies.
noSmokeFire: that's HUGE in Hades' design
CleeKru subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 40 months, currently on a 40 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, CleeKru! (Today's storm count: 35)
Invitare: in DS3 the Pontiff Knights might help train for Sulyvahn I guess
Tom_Bruise: the area before Quelaag teaches you to not stand in the goop? Does that count?
Zaghrog: I often thought the last boss was easier, but that's just because I rarely turn on Extreme Measures 4
Invitare: though mainly because they're hard and so's he?
Invitare: oh I've never done EM4 and I don't want to
Invitare: they're great on fast weapons
Thandres: they are real good on weapons that hit often
noSmokeFire: Support Fire is good, but notably hard to scale
Ogrekidd: on fast attack weapons its very good
DiscordianTokkan: Support Fire is great on higher attack rate weapons
SeismicLawns: support fire is pretty good when you can hit a lot
TehAmelie: the area before Ornstein and Smough teaches you to not fight two enemies at the same time
andrew: support fire's rad; it doesn't do a ton but it adds up. it's real good on the fists/rail
SeismicLawns: shop
Dread_Pirate_Westley: They're best on rail and fist, yes.
Invitare: always hammer
andrew: always hammer
Alephred: Oo, Talking Sim Hades!
DiscordianTokkan: Rail and Fists is where it shines, and the bow on special
Invitare: unless casting
l0rdrollin: always hammer
Zaghrog: Invitare cool thing about EM 4 is new music
Invitare: actually
Invitare: the attack will still knock away
Invitare: because you have Poseidon
SeismicLawns: pulverizing is great here
Invitare: I'd take the top one tbh
SeismicLawns: because of poseidon yeah
Zaghrog: Oh yeah, the ufo disc is my favorite shield aspect, and Empowering Flight is great with it
DahudLefthanded: @invitare are hammer effects applied before noon effects?
CleeKru: that shield is SO much better. like from second least favorite weapon to my favorite weapon
Ogrekidd: now do we support fire twice
Bl1ghtn1n6: Zeus shield is...a thing
DahudLefthanded: *boon effect
Invitare: I am ready to be blamed, but I am like 99% certain it will still knock back
Invitare: because Poseidon's effect is different to the basic knockback
SeismicLawns: this hammer turns off the inherent knockback the shield, but you still get your boon effects
noSmokeFire: I love a shield run with multiple bullrush hammers. piercing laser with power shot? yes please
TheWanderingNomad: There are worse fates
Tom_Bruise: hey she needs a win every now and again
tenthtechpriest: getting disintegrated by meg is a common way to go
noSmokeFire: tbf ignoring the spear's spin is usually correct
SeismicLawns: to be fair, the spear's spin attack is just bad
Invitare: spin2win is mainly for Aspect of Hades and the Hidden Aspect
ExachixKitsune: I always found spear spin way too slow and thus leaves you open to attack
Thandres: man, when i have the spear i always turn into a beyblade, i always forget the special^^
Tom_Bruise: Always get the daedalus upgrade on the spear that replaces your spin with rapid attacks
Zaghrog: the spin on the spear is pretty marginal, unless using the Hades aspect that buffs it
noSmokeFire: @Zaghrog even then, it's SO slow
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Hitting the adds makes support fire trigger at Meg. That's the strat.
TehAmelie: i have found almost all the good things with the spear happen when you dash attack
Invitare: it's workable. My earliest fastest run was Aspect of Hades with Crit spins
Zaghrog: noSmokeFire there's a hammer effect that makes it faster. Also, the debuff it grants is significant
Tom_Bruise: That dude tried to bonk you into horny jail
Invitare: the fact you can dodge while charging the spin is huge
noSmokeFire: @Zaghrog sure! but doesn't the debuff not increase the spin's damage?
CleeKru: nice
andrew: n i c e
RandomTrivia: Success!
TehAmelie: brutally, excruciatingly close
Thandres: hypnos is best boi :D
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this a fresh start?
skyrider19: Good Job!
Mollylele: unarmeGameplay
Invitare: He tries
Zaghrog: noSmokeFire it's a matter of debuffing the enemy with the spin, then attacking normally. The wide AoE means it can catch lots of enemies
psychopez: your comparison to "that one guy" at work hits so hard.
psychopez: we all know that one guy
BlueMechanic: He's neat
Ba_Dum_Tish: I only just realised that Hypnos is voiced by the lead writer
ContingentCat: katesLol ah yes that guy
Ogrekidd: might need that toof
jdkaiba: I felt that pain in my soul
Kaorti: Is this about the Theseus tie-in
Alephred: Oo, you can show the yarn to Asterios.
kalira77: ludicrous amount of *voice acted* dialogue at that
TheWanderingNomad: And they're all phenomenal voice actors
Tom_Bruise: They'll talk about the fancy aspects of weapons you have equipped
Ba_Dum_Tish: Hades has multiple reactions when you call upon a god in his presence
andrew: yeah the matrix of things that people react to is _awesome_
Invitare: 2 things Cam hasn't seen
TehAmelie: i think of Hypnos more as the guy who cannot explain to Bob and Bob what he actually does in the office
BlueMechanic: The fishing is great
DarkAbyssKeeper: The number of distinct "you look EFFed up" dialogues for when your health is low is bonkers.
ashteranic: my favorite is getting a Trial of the Gods, and chosing against a god, and then during the fight, using their Call
Invitare: yeah Chaos occasionally chimes in when using his shield
ashteranic: :P
skyrider19: The amount of depth to this game is just fantastic!
Bl1ghtn1n6: @Invitare (their)
No_Superman10: @ashteranic Doesn't that just kill you?
TehAmelie: nectar. or sideplot juice
DahudLefthanded: I love that Chaos is beyond gender. such a nice touch
DiscordianTokkan: Nectar, the eventual Boldie Fuel
KyojiTakenouchi: hello friend
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Hermes has a response that basically parrots back one of Zag's messages.
DahudLefthanded: I can think of one conversation you have with Dionysus.
skyrider19: YAY my favorite character!
TehAmelie: they have a very vague sense of what Zag does and says
Tom_Bruise: There are bits where you have full-blown conversations with the Gods
ashteranic: no_superman10: it never has to me. the god sounds very annoyed though
IbunWest: I believe Artemis explicitly says she "can't hear you anyway" in one of her messages.
DiscordianTokkan: Tree wife!
Tom_Bruise: Hermes will at some point ask if you want him to shut up, and you have to tell him yes or no
TheWanderingNomad: Not her fault tho!
Zaghrog: I actually like the Farewell song better with just Eurydice
CleeKru: what @IbunWest said.
Bl1ghtn1n6: I had a loud reaction to finding out Chaos was agender
Alephred: The Olympians sometimes talk about how they've lost sight of you.
DiscordianTokkan: Hermes actually shows up in person almost, I feel, but the others have a hard time 'hearing' I think
Invitare: I think the Gods can hear prayers, and giving Nectar is considered a prayer. But beyond that they're not really up for conversation or aware of what's happening down there
CleeKru: @Bl1ghtn1n6 oh yes :)
TehAmelie: in this room i mostly learned there's never any delicious secrets hidden in the lava
CleeKru: @DiscordianTokkan and Demeter kinda
Bl1ghtn1n6: the first boon of the game has Zag saying "I know you can't hear me, but thank you"
IbunWest: Wow
TehAmelie: challenge accepted, eh
DahudLefthanded: it's true, cori, but you shouldn't say it
korvys: I'm amazed that such a talented muscian as Darren Korb (the sound track creator) is ALSO a really good VO (he's the voice of Zag)
Alephred: There's a line here where you ask Eurydice if it's weird that a tree nymph is giving you an acorn, and she replies 'don't be stupid, that would be weird.'
TheWanderingNomad: And Skelly!
DiscordianTokkan: It's Rough but doable
Bl1ghtn1n6: Darren Korb playing both Zag and Skelly is wild
DarkAbyssKeeper: You have 52 health, its possible.
Zaghrog: Pretty good hit, hitting the Dash would have been kind of bad
Ba_Dum_Tish: Its amazing looking at the different characters people have voiced and going "Wait how did these come from the same person"
CleeKru: "i love watching them burn" - Cori 2021
l33twalnuts: thought you were andy cohen in the thumbnail
korvys: !findquote burn
LRRbot: Quote #3894: "I don't have calloused fingers, I've just burned all the nerves off" —Kathleen [2017-01-23]
DarkAbyssKeeper: I was playing this earlier and my daughter chimed in "you can stand on the lava?"
DarkAbyssKeeper: "Yeah, it hurts."
DiscordianTokkan: "Flame Resistant feet, not immune" even shows up as a line in the game iirc
Zaghrog: DiscordianTokkan yup, it's a thing
Bl1ghtn1n6: "I'm only flame-resistant, not flame-proof" to be exact
Thandres: the sound design is sooo good :D
Brozard: Artemis is greeeaaaaat
DiscordianTokkan: Bow friend!
Bl1ghtn1n6: Artemis is great
TehAmelie: Zag has such hot feet. i bet he'd be nice to snuggle with in bed
Brozard: Support Fire lrrHORN
Ba_Dum_Tish: I perfer the barge over the other fight
ContingentCat: but what if yes barge of death
Zaghrog: The barge is fine, though I quite dislike the big shielding crystal
DiscordianTokkan: Does the Barge of Death music count as Boat Rock?
Bl1ghtn1n6: as someone who now primarily speedruns this game, eff the barge
Alephred: Rocking the Boat, perhaps.
Anamalous_Accountant: is this a new file?
TehAmelie: i do think the devs are a little too enamored with the death barge
psychopez: death barge feels very Bastion
DarkAbyssKeeper: I really want a good Poseidon/Athena "No go away go away" Run at some point.
psychopez: music, rails, etc...
Brozard: the bumper
Piratical_tendancies: not yet
Brozard: ah, yes, that
Dread_Pirate_Westley: In Greece, EVERYONE ends up in Hades.
ExachixKitsune: oh! That's good to know
DiscordianTokkan: Exit Wounds and Pressure Points are both good, for getting her Legendary
Ba_Dum_Tish: It was sad that supergiant had a bunch of their instruments stolen
x0den: you also need to buy it from the worker people
ntwarrior: That feature isnt on default codex
Zaghrog: Pressure Points and Hunter's Mark with Support Fire is cool
ntwarrior: you have to buy it
chickenmanphil: ayyyy hows it going all

DarkAbyssKeeper: I am constantly casting instead of dodging when I panic.
Bl1ghtn1n6: eh, pom on special imo
Ba_Dum_Tish: I believe there is also a conversation for removing all your nyx buffs and fighting Meg and one for fighting Hades without a god boon
Bl1ghtn1n6: pomming Support Fire doesn't really do much here
TehAmelie: when you speak of the angels
DiscordianTokkan: Boss fight time, then
Alephred: Zag doesn't know what birds are. :D
Zaghrog: I think Hermes is similar to Daedalus Hammers in that it's hard to get more than two in a run. That's why I dislike missing out on Hermes
Bl1ghtn1n6: I don't know you can gift on first boon for a god
ContingentCat: lrrFINE
DiscordianTokkan: You can
Piratical_tendancies: Hi Lernie!
iris_of_ether: lrrFINE
DiscordianTokkan: Hi Lernie!
Ogrekidd: your on a descent atk build with support fire and double attack
Bl1ghtn1n6: @Zaghrog on the other hand, the game will give you multiple chances to make sure you can see two Hermes/hammers
skyrider19: Lernie!
DarkAbyssKeeper: Take those nearly 400 gold coins and feed them to the hydra.
Tom_Bruise: worst case scenario, the hydra will kill you horribly and you'll awaken in the pool of Styx to be humiliated by everyone in the House of Hades
Zaghrog: Bl1ghtn1n6 true, and Hammer is more important
TheWriterAleph: hot damn this game is so buttery smooth
shurtal: how bout.....more lava
Tom_Bruise: the sense of dashing in the lava all the time gets worse on Extreme Measures yea
DiscordianTokkan: The EM version is Oops all Lava
Piratical_tendancies: Oh did people watch the GDQ run of this?
Bl1ghtn1n6: EM2: pain
Thandres: the trick is to just kill lernie faster than the lava kills you seabatBRAIN
Bl1ghtn1n6: the GDQ run was very good, Vorime's extremely good
Zaghrog: For me, EM3 was the first EM that gave me any particular trouble
TehAmelie: no one likes lava. it's like the bran flakes of the earth
CleeKru: lava.... it's hot it hurts and it gets everywhere?
Bl1ghtn1n6: head slams are hard to dodge

GredGredmansson: First time watching this stream, what # run is this?
Tom_Bruise: Lesson to learn; the green horned ones summon skeletons
Zaghrog: there are like 5?
Alephred: Is it lava or magma while it's in surface pools in Hades?
DiscordianTokkan: Hydra spikes, lava balls, beam attacks, and Eggos
shurtal: Lernie gonna take you to ground pound town
skyrider19: I always make that mistake of getting too close to get ground pounded
DahudLefthanded: So what's the trigger for the Lernie nickname?
NimrodXIV: noooo
bananderson_: brutal
Bl1ghtn1n6: just fighting him enogh
DiscordianTokkan: oof
GredGredmansson: you fight it enough times, Zagreus just decides to call it Lernie
skyrider19: I think a certain amount of battles?
Alephred: @gred This is more or less a fresh run, they're discussing theme and mechanics and things.
Brozard: The windup and th--
Tom_Bruise: the cast has a bit of start-up
TehAmelie: i think after you beat them like 20 times
Ba_Dum_Tish: Time to get bodied again by Hypnos
ashteranic: F
DahudLefthanded: Lernie's lack of dialog is one of the reasons I dislike asphodel
Brozard: I totally feel that
BrowneePoints: Purple is ranged blades, Regular Orange is ranged shots, Yellow is Eggs, Blue is Multi Pound, Dark Orange??? is Magma
GredGredmansson: I wouldn't call it "stomped"
ntwarrior: oof, its okay Cam, you'll get Lernie next time I'm sure
DiscordianTokkan: Φ in chat
Alephred: Φ
KodeMage: can you pet the dog?
GredGredmansson: I like the theory that Hypnos is actually completely sincere, and just SUCKS at giving advice

KodeMage: pet the dog plz
Lancelive: Hades' beard makes me so uncomfortable
PixelArtDragon: Are ya winning, boy!
richard_ermen: Dog petting required!
richard_ermen: Chat requires dog petting ^^
RobotInProgress: "You can't guilt trip me Old Man!" - Zag to Hades
DiscordianTokkan: Ooh, codex time?
BrowneePoints: As a big fan of Greek myths, my only gripe is how they hardcore villainize Hades in this
GredGredmansson: oh this is still pretty early on then
Piratical_tendancies: codex!
BrowneePoints: but that goes for all narratives that Villainize Hades
PixelArtDragon: Something really subtle that I love about Achilles's portrait: it's ever so slightly transparent, because he's a shade
GredGredmansson: whoa
2Flower: Hooray, a Pokedex!
GredGredmansson: already found Eurydice
Tom_Bruise: Hades is the stuck-up dad in this tale of teenage rebellion, he has to be the villain
InkyGhoast: Give dog treat
TheWanderingNomad: @BrowneePoints - Really I find this to be one of the nicer depictions of him At least he's not a full out and out villain like say Disney Hercules
GredGredmansson: My favorite was "at least I won the bet" -cause of death: stampede
richard_ermen: I suppose most greek dead died of Greece, didn't they?
Alephred: Cause of Death: Elephants.
Brozard: WELL
DiscordianTokkan: I forget how much it costs to start cleaning the lounge
GhostValv: I love the faces to convey emotions on the shades
KodeMage: he's not known for being nice, that hades
Tom_Bruise: he lied about that one BIG thing, but you know, that's about it
DarkAbyssKeeper: "The mortal world is a wind swept wasteland" ?
SerGarretCameron: and there's a tolerable amount of ommission.
GredGredmansson: Disney Hades is probably the most antagonistice Hades EVER
DahudLefthanded: I trust Hermes
Brozard: ^^
richard_ermen: Considering that he's basically the most powerful of the gods opposite of Zeus makes it clear that Hades has no need to be nice to the olympians.
BrowneePoints: In Greek Mythology Hades is actually known for being quite Nice and agreeable as long as you do what's expected
InkyGhoast: I also trust hermes, mans just doing his job
richard_ermen: Hades is the only god who's realm will ever grow.
InkyGhoast: Artemis and Athena are ok
MrTulip: I trust demeter to be terrifying.
GredGredmansson: Hades is strict, but fair
Ritaspirithntr: And Dio, can’t really lie
Luminaire_p: unarmeHeart unarmeHeart unarmeHeart
Alephred: Almost every character, even the minor ones, have character arcs.
CleeKru: also.... WHY is Zagreus able to talk to the storyteller????
BrowneePoints: Hades is just the most Studious of the Gods and respects his station
114 raiders from Seabats have joined!
richard_ermen: @CleeKru He'S a greek hero, of course he can talk to chorus and storyteller.
Alephred: Skelly has an arc. Charon has an arc.
Bl1ghtn1n6: @CleeKru why not?
GredGredmansson: Because the storyteller talks to him

TehAmelie: Hades' plan is to make it as slow and frustrating as possible for Zag to escape the underworld as possible in order to make him never ever escape the underworld. a plot worthy of a Greek god i feel

Mr_Horrible: TehAmelie "I will inconvenience you into submission" feels like the right level of petty, yeah
Zaghrog: Eh, there are builds I don't care very much about critting
Tom_Bruise: can't benefit from any of the aspects until you unlock all the weapons
BrowneePoints: Artemis Demeter and Dionysus have the best Spear builds I think
Bl1ghtn1n6: you don't get aspect bonuses until you unlock everything
DarkAbyssKeeper: Aspect of Zagreus before any upgrade is +0% to crit, I believe?
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah, the Zagreus aspects even start at level 0, so they don't get Any bonuses
GredGredmansson: HINT. HINT.
richard_ermen: I mean, that is kind of part of the game really, the fact that EVERYTHING IS SECRET. Its even put into the game lore.
InkyGhoast: WINK
Bl1ghtn1n6: (and crit chance is Zag bow anyways, I believe Zag spear is special damage/reach/speed)
InkyGhoast: that's not artemis, that's creepiest uncle
Zaghrog: Bl1ghtn1n6 that's correct
MrTulip: didn't you take artemis boon?
DiscordianTokkan: Oh, is this the fishing rod Boat uncle encounter?
Bl1ghtn1n6: eh, Zeus is worse than Poseidon
BrowneePoints: are they Hekatonkheires?
Luminaire_p: I think this is the "Call Unlock" scripted event
richard_ermen: @BrowneePoints Naa, not multi-minded-entities.
Bl1ghtn1n6: yep, this is call scripted run
BrowneePoints: The Hekatonkheires DO guard Tartarus
Pseudonym_Ken: tries so hard
DiscordianTokkan: Ahhh, the Aid gets unlocked, that's what it was
GredGredmansson: @Luminaire_p called it
Bearudite: Funcle
TehAmelie: the funcle, if you will
Ba_Dum_Tish: Again same voice actor as Hades
Zaghrog: Poseidon's call is pretty good
SohNata: You go woosh
RedArrogantKnight: this is one of my favorite calls
Stormsummoner: Zeus is used to being everyone's dad, so...
InkyGhoast: lets you smash
adamjford: Good afternoon, folks
GredGredmansson: if it's like the rest of Poseidon's stuff, pushes things away
DarkAbyssKeeper: I've never seen it give only one option.
DiscordianTokkan: Slpoosh and bash
Brozard: Poseidon wants to invite you out on his motorboat to crush some cans
elah806: Poseidon wants you to know his favorite Steely Dan record is Gaucho
richard_ermen: Well Zeus IS everyone's dad, in a way.
BrowneePoints: and does a TON of damage
Zaghrog: Athena's Call is like the only call I don't really like
richard_ermen: Also remember, Zeus has slept with EVERYONE at some point.
TehAmelie: regular call is just like a split second of invulnerability. not that that doesn't help sometimes
DiscordianTokkan: Oooh, Chaos unlock also
InkyGhoast: oh im the opposite i love athena's call, aphrodite's call on the other hand
TheWanderingNomad: Spear goes in, guts come out
TehAmelie: the greater call though. . .
GredGredmansson: bed goes up, bed goes down
BrowneePoints: Aphro's Call has 2500 base damage at rank 1
KodeMage: pointy end goes in other people
GredGredmansson: that IS good
tctrain: I personally rank calls based off how much damage they deal
CleeKru: @Zaghrog it is my favorite.... it's fascinating how wildly play styles can ver yin the game
Zaghrog: I quite like Aphrodite's call, it reliably deals a lot of damage
BrowneePoints: Ope, sorry, Max Charge Aphro call does 2500 damage
Pseudonym_Ken: yes and thank you
Bl1ghtn1n6: Aphro call takes too long to really be valuable imo
RedArrogantKnight: ez
Sibtiger50: purple booooon
Zaghrog: I imagine a very succesful build really likes Athena's Call
GredGredmansson: big attack + big cret
Bl1ghtn1n6: I like attack more
ghyllnox: Take the rare
Tom_Bruise: when in doubt, pick purple
DiscordianTokkan: Big attack is good toooo
GredGredmansson: so questoin
phenexian: crit on spins is gold
DahudLefthanded: I never manage to pull off dash strikes
Tom_Bruise: it's Epic even!
BusTed: Purple is bigger than gray.
TheElrad: gamers love crit
Bl1ghtn1n6: hunter dash is real good but I think epic strike matters more
Mantafold: Epic run
InkyGhoast: oh crit with the spins
GredGredmansson: when did everyone decide what the colors for common, epic, rare, and legendary were?
vrecken: big numbers
PixelArtDragon: benginChaos
skyrider19: With a good chance to crit as well!
CleeKru: tshaos!

Anamalous_Accountant: get the hammer that extends range with that

GredGredmansson: there are theories
BrowneePoints: I believe it's implied to be Homer
RedArrogantKnight: there's a huge clue as to who the narrator is
Pseudonym_Ken: @GredGredmansson I like this question
InkyGhoast: All we know about the narrator is that he's a poet
GredGredmansson: @BrowneePoints yes
DahudLefthanded: headcanon is that the narrator is Homer
EvilBadman: It's implied to be Homer
niccus: wrong number
call_me_Aras: NArrator is a Cad that's what he is
adamjford: oh I would have figured that out like 2 minutes later after my question
adamjford: whoops

GredGredmansson: WOOHOO
CienZaufania is continuing the Gift Sub they got from Naarius!
call_me_Aras: The marble IS Earth
Luminaire_p: d'oh
TehAmelie: i like the subplot of the narrator getting increasingly done with Zag's bullshit
ThisCatHasSeenGod: When you get a bust of Homer he gushes over it, so its likely himz
RedArrogantKnight: aw yeah dash strike
BrowneePoints: Cam, that was an implied Pun, and it hurt me
InkyGhoast: ooh i like enshrouded or addled
Bl1ghtn1n6: last one's real strong
Sibtiger50: this early I would take 2 personally
Pseudonym_Ken: Lunge?
skyrider19: lunge?
DiscordianTokkan: Small dash is still usable
Sibtiger50: getting more darkness and gems is so useful
EvilBadman: Halting lunge isn't that big of a debuff
korvys: The VA is Logan Cunningham, it seems.
Bl1ghtn1n6: like it's basically added Hunter dash
Tom_Bruise: not hitting the cast button is always the safe bet; casts just never feel worth without an upgrade
RedArrogantKnight: practice dashing a bit right now
Zaghrog: Eclipse is by far the most used Chaos Boon for me
richard_ermen: Its greek myth, isn't the narrator either a greek chorus or Homer or something such?
TehAmelie: the piling of the damage multipliers begins
richard_ermen: I mean, the entire game is myth telling anyway, so it doesn't have to be conventional storytelling.
Sibtiger50: always remember, crits in this game are triple damage not just double
InkyGhoast: i hope we get to meet orpheus soon so we can start messing with orpheus soon
TehAmelie: "at least" triple damage i believe
GhostValv: keys?

EvilBadman: Spear regular attack range is bloody huge which takes getting used to
DiscordianTokkan: I got goozled by those fast lunges SO OFTEN trying to stack Than's item boost for the achievement
GredGredmansson: @InkyGhoast crazy that this file met Eurydice before Orpheus
Zaghrog: it is triple damage, unless some effect is increasing it
Tom_Bruise: Curse you, little jars!
CienZaufania: lrrDILLY
Luminaire_p: Me

TheElrad: Adam Savidans

BusTed: @UWDJohn Nice.
ContingentCat: big boops

ContingentCat: yeah the sybil asking to die
Luminaire_p: Having two dodges, how decadent.
ghyllnox: 2 is not 0
BrowneePoints: You can spin the stick super fast with that call and slap them multiple times
Zaghrog: I almost never use a Call before it's max rank

Tom_Bruise: She's a bit forward, but you'll make it up to her by hanging up a poster of her on your wall
Pseudonym_Ken: Passion Dash seems nice here
InkyGhoast: I like different league
call_me_Aras: Oh, Cori means the Great Fairy, not Navi
PixelArtDragon: Great, now I have the image of that fairy in my mind again
GredGredmansson: Dassion Pash
ghyllnox: It is the rare
BrowneePoints: @Zaghrog Poseidon, Ares and Artemis have good 1 guage calls
RedArrogantKnight: passion dash is really good
Mattmitchell45: Loved the Breath of the Wild Fairies so much...crushing you
InkyGhoast: You can get both a dio and an Aphrodite poster
Pseudonym_Ken: I dislike that cast as well
Ritaspirithntr: @alahmnat They’re still thirsty AF!!!
RedArrogantKnight: yeah it's the worst cast (when I played)
DiscordianTokkan: Crush Shot needs to be built around
Brozard: Absolutely depends on the playstyle
Zaghrog: BrowneePoints I can see that, it's just the the max rank is so much more value
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun One of the bow upgrades lets you load Casts into your next shot, and with Aphro's Weak Cast, you OBLITERATE things
ANeMzero: I mean the bow already has a shotgun blast with it's special, which I regularly build around for a melee-bow build
PMAvers: I got my first win the other day with a Shotgun Rail build
GredGredmansson: Weak lowers enemy offense, right?
Bl1ghtn1n6: Hera bow with Aphro cast is real fun
Ogrekidd: I hated it and never picked it but it can do some insane damage it drops the crystal very quickly to
Bl1ghtn1n6: you can hit 4-digit damage per attack pretty easily
call_me_Aras: The weak cast is better on weapons that let you "load" a cast into a regular attack, like the Aspect of Beowulf for the shield or Aspect of Hera for the Bow
Tom_Bruise: this game is all about dat APM
Brozard: Nothing beats Crystal Beam + Crystal Clarity IMO
DarkAbyssKeeper: I'm sorry what?
DiscordianTokkan: Huh! Never knew that
Ritaspirithntr: @browneepoints that’s an aspect, not an upgrade they’re different, but yeah inteteresting. Should try that sometime. Always grab Arti shot for Hera Box
Ritaspirithntr: *bow
call_me_Aras: I did not know that about the spear. Still don't like it though
InkyGhoast: the APM during the GDQ run of this was wild
Zaghrog: Treasure troves and Trials are also an opportunity to ambush incoming enemies with a sspin
phenexian: @Brozard you've never played Fists with athena and ares combo
Sibtiger50: that spin dash is crucial to using it especially the later aspects
accountmadeforants: Whenever I get an armour damage bonus from a Daedalus Hammer, I take it. I don't care what the other options are, I just like the occasional run where I can completely ignore how annoying armour can be.
ShadeofHades: For some reason I only remember to use 2 of the 3 attacks (special, cast, attack) at a time
GredGredmansson: HEAAAAAART
Ritaspirithntr: @brozard omg! I had Lucifer with Crystal Beam complete combo. It was a lazer party!
ghyllnox: Spear goes in, spear goes out, and in and out and in and out and dead
TehAmelie: fill this man with hearts
GredGredmansson: all you really need is HEAAAAART
Brozard: @phenexian in terms of casts?
DiscordianTokkan: Just ripping a centaur in half
Zaghrog: I tend not to take armor buffs from Hammers, they're pretty useless against boss battle
Tom_Bruise: Doctor! His heart's failing! *jams three hearts in there*
BrowneePoints: If you rip a Centaur in half don't you now have Half a Horse and Half a Man?
Brozard: @Ritaspirithntr Funny enough, I think that's when I got that Duo boon lrrAWESOME
call_me_Aras: @BrowneePoints not if you do it top to bottom

phenexian: @Brozard oh specifically casts, I'm a huge fan of Poseidon with sea storm
accountmadeforants: Zaghrog Bosses are predictable, enemies that just refuse to stagger for way too long are not. (But that's just me.)
Zaghrog: accountmadeforants I do agree the not staggering enemies are a pain
Brozard: @phenexian Fair! I realize I didn't specify only casts in my original comment
ghyllnox: !!! they use they/them for Chaos?? Yesss
AlexFGaming: @BrowneePoints likely not because as it is one creature to begin with it's unlikely to have the circulatory or digestive systems of both creatures
InkyGhoast: dysfunctional parental relationships all the way down!
Tom_Bruise: Chaos does kinda exist beyond the concept of gender
BrowneePoints: Nyx and erebus had a thing
Orgmastron: Chaos using they/them pronouns just feels correct
ghyllnox: Oh heck yeah!
BrowneePoints: and nyx also had kids from parthenogensis
Invitare: Erebus isn't in this game except geographically
Hadhayosh: is this a replay or a first playthrough?
Mr_Horrible: I love that the NPCs know so much more about the goings-on than you, as the player, so they can hint at it, but canonically Zag is also kind of an oblivious dope, so it works narratively too
BrowneePoints: @Invitare neither is Tartarus
Brozard: @phenexian and I don't recall if I've done Fists/Athena/Ares, which boon combos do you recommend?
GredGredmansson: @Hadhayosh I don't think it's first, but he also hasn't progressed through a lot I don't think
InkyGhoast: cameron your call!
TehAmelie: Chaos strongly reminds me of grandmotherfather Nahadol in The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. not that the similarities are incidental
EvilBadman: You're immune during posideon call. Big cheats.
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah, I keep forgetting if it's not full it doesn't just use what I've got
PixelArtDragon: It was a pretty big turning point in how I played that I stopped saving my call all the time
phenexian: @Brozard you take Ares on the attack early so that it gains levels with poms, then you need to get athena on the special and the dash (special or attack is required for the duo). The end product is that you can dash attack into enemies to give them doom and immediately fire it.
phenexian: It's how I got my sub 10 minute run
Chrysoprase: medusa?
Bl1ghtn1n6: Merciful End sure is a thing
BlueMechanic: gorgon head or gorgonzola

Bl1ghtn1n6: by which I mean it's bonkers good
TehAmelie: i wonder if Meg made those statues. i mean she has to get bored waiting in that room
patbaer: hmm.

Asoxa: sergeChair sergeChair sergeChair sergeChair
GredGredmansson: For those just tuning in, Cam just obtained the Codex before this run, just unlocked the Spear, and did first times for Call and Chaos
corianderd: heather will be fine
Brozard: @phenexian I'm assuming that an Impending Doom bonus will still stack with that?
KV1NN4: PrideWingL katesChair PrideWingR
Zaghrog: Why would it stack with Impending Doom?
phenexian: @Brozard yes it does and you'll really want to hunt for that if you have the spare boons
BrowneePoints: @corianderd I got my first Heat run done today with Zeus Shield and Hangover stacking!
Alahmnat: waiting to see Cam run back into the room in a fluster, heh
Dread_Pirate_Westley: The alternate Heather who only exists in the imaginations of Chat will be so mad!

call_me_Aras: Wonderful face Cam
BrowneePoints: Goodbye Cameron
ghyllnox: Yeahhh there we go, hi Cam
Alahmnat: lrrFINE
Tom_Bruise: And it came to pass, that the break-screen button was pressed
corianderd: @BrowneePoints congrats! Did you drop a bunch of festive fog or just layer effects on attacks?
Brozard: You're good @Zaghrog I was wondering if that could play in as well, but it probably wouldn't really increase your DPS
phenexian: you also don't want to split your attention
BrowneePoints: @corianderd I had Power Bash, Increase Bash Charge Time, and then just Hangover on Special. So i just stacked the dot and spammed invulnerability
Zaghrog: BrowneePoints I recommend trying the UFO Disc with a Zeus heavy build
phenexian: it's a fiddly combo to assemble
phenexian: and you want to get it as fast as possible
Zaghrog: Brozard my experience with Ares builds is the Lucifer gun in laser mode, all in on doom
phenexian: but once you have it, every enemy just melts to your dash attack

Gekyouryuu: -_-
SandwichKed: I got my first clear last night, on attempt 25.
Bl1ghtn1n6: oof
corianderd: i'm so bad with guan yu
Bl1ghtn1n6: Guan Yu's a really weird weapon
Brozard: I do recall making an Ares Fists build with the Cast and Dash, was lucky enough to get Engulfing Vortex and Vicious Cycle
SandwichKed: Lucked into super-damage rail build, 700+ per special.
corianderd: My current love is the arthur sword
Tom_Bruise: Guan Yu's almost not worth it unless it's fully leveled up
Bl1ghtn1n6: I think I've cleared once with it? but wasn't a fan
phenexian: @Zaghrog if you're playing with lucifer and ares, can I suggest putting ares on the special, as it gives unpopped bombs doom inflicting auras
ContingentCat: @Gekyouryuu google calander notifications are way more dependable than twitch's
Pseudonym_Ken: I'm really liking the Frost Fair Spear
Bl1ghtn1n6: Arthur's so good
Zaghrog: SandwichKed yeah getting good bomb mods from Hamers can be huge
PrinceNimzar: I've been occasionally trying to run a new save file to see if i can clear on attempt number 1.
Pseudonym_Ken: Guan Yu is difficult, but I feel very tactical with it
PrinceNimzar: I've only made it to Asphadel though
call_me_Aras: I really love Aspect of Rama. Just so good to hit guys with the special and forget about them as they die off screen
SandwichKed: I was more or less stuck on Heroes before that. I just can't deal with the shielding.
Mister_BlueSky: I'm sort of speedrunning at this point. I can't get sub 12 minutes though. It's just beyond me.
Zaghrog: phenexian eh, the laser applies stacks quite fast and I want my Special to inflict a different debuff to get a 40% damage buff

ContingentCat: Tolkien was such a nerd

xicx: the game of gods!!!!!
withwherewithal: Good day
Zaghrog: That sword is not the only future reference I think
Brozard: the Beowulf aspect references that he's a hero to come IIRC
GredGredmansson: This takes place during Greek myth
BrowneePoints: Guan Yu and Beowulf are future too
InkyGhoast: Theseus and Hades both have commentary on the hidden aspects
TehAmelie: the underworld lies beneath all space and time
xicx: love the look of this game so much
Invitare: This is still Ancient Greece
BrowneePoints: and Guan Yu was 400AD?
Tom_Bruise: the weapon's hidden aspects are from great heroes from both the past and the future
SageOfSquirrels: When you're done with it do you stab the sword in an anvil?
GredGredmansson: the last form of every weapon comes from a different mythology
phenexian: @LoadingReadyRun the aspect weapons can assume forms from the future is explicitly referenced
GhostValv: :)
Pseudonym_Ken: I believe the Excalibur and the Frost Fair Spear are both future references?
InkyGhoast: I just beat the game with the aspect of Gilgamesh and that was a funny convo with hades
mrshazboto: Are we spoiling weapon aspects? Because the spear had neat implications too
jkoon78076: is there a grey merchant here?
ANeMzero: Named after the venerable Hero Sub
Saintnex: Only the fist aspect is before Ancient Greece
RandomTrivia: I love that we all know exactly why that non-sequitur made sense LUL
GredGredmansson: @jkoon78076 his name is Charon
BrowneePoints: Shrek 2 is one of the few times a Sequel is better than the original in nearly every way
Alahmnat: dammit Cori
call_me_Aras: The Aspect of Lucifer is the one that really gets me going ???
DrPezzer: I am learning to adore the spear
xicx: i was watching a speed run of this game today and still can't beleive it
GredGredmansson: one's your boy, the other is your boi
jkoon78076: no @gredgredmansson his name is Gary
Snes_Controller: Hermes is also your cousin
mrshazboto: If you don't have that cousin - you ARE that cousin
xicx: lol
SerGarretCameron: the bad influence cousin.
TehAmelie: i marathoned all the Shrek movies and i kind of hated them by the third. maybe should rewatch 2
ANeMzero: when they said "your boy" I thought they meant the three headed lava skeleton between the rafts
EvilBadman: you only see Hermes twice in a run
GredGredmansson: i've never actually seen 3 or 4
ghyllnox: Yeah I have... let's see...5 cousins, one aunt/uncle set, and one sibling like that
ContingentCat: I suspect my cousin who's like that is one of the australian ones I've only met once or twice
Tom_Bruise: Whenever you have no cousin that wants you to sneak off with them to drink booze, you should become that cousin to your cousins... actually don't do that
xicx: man they need to remake dante's inferno like this
BrowneePoints: @TehAmelie Shrek 3-5 are actually awful
GredGredmansson: there's a fifth one?
Brozard: There are *5* Shrek movies?
Piratical_tendancies: we bullet hell now
Pseudonym_Ken: So despite having over 100 runs now, I am just now realizing how the enemies in each zone represent one aspect of the boss attack patterns
Bl1ghtn1n6: you can only get 2 Hermes boons (3 if you buy in Styx), but you can skip a Hermes and still get two shots later. Same with hammers.
Zaghrog: EvilBadman I'm pretty sure I've had a run or two where I met Hermes a third time, but it's rare
BrowneePoints: @GredGredmansson My brain put Puss n Boots as Shrek 5 cuz it's same universe
Pseudonym_Ken: Watching you fight these and making me realize that's literally the same attack as the Hydra
ghyllnox: Just faster?
SandwichKed: don't knock the boots
ghyllnox: Everything's lunch if you're brave enough
EvilBadman: @Zaghrog I think 3 is either Charon shop or Plume.
Brozard: Lore on the bottom
Piratical_tendancies: oooooh
Brozard: WOW
Zaghrog: Fortunately none of the Hydra heads do pterification
GhostValv: :O

Bl1ghtn1n6: now we just have to live that long
Zaghrog: EvilBadman Charon shop. Plume works differently from the other Olympian keepsakes
EvilBadman: right right
Bl1ghtn1n6: it's a very rare one, requires a previous chaos boon first
TehAmelie: if you just don't die you might win (wait)
GredGredmansson: this is this files first Chaos run
SandwichKed: ugh
GredGredmansson: so that's nuts
Zaghrog: The upgraded version of this fight is quite mean
ANeMzero: Big Dusa.
Brozard: Could be worse, it could be the stompy boy with the unavoidable AoE damage
call_me_Aras: Hey, is fishing in Chaos bugged for anyone else? Haven't gotten a fish in forever. I heard it might be a problem with the switch version.
Zaghrog: Brozard can dash through it
Bl1ghtn1n6: yeah you can dash through that shockwave
Mr_Horrible: Zag saying what we're all thinking
PixelArtDragon: This fight is all about being stuck between a rock and a hard place
Pseudonym_Ken: I play on Switch and I've never seen a fish there
Mr_Horrible: er, Game Zag, not Chat Zag LUL
Brozard: @Zaghrog I still take damage when I try. To clarify, I'm talking about the higher difficulty version.
TehAmelie: i remember this hockey personality who once said, sincerely, on television, "i think if we can score more goals than the other team we have a chance to win this game"
call_me_Aras: @Pseudonym_Ken it only happens after 10 plus complete runs I believe for reference
Zaghrog: Mr_Horrible I do admit the ingame Zag references can get to me
Mr_Horrible: 'swhat I get for being a lazy typist :p
Zaghrog: Brozard I know. I don't think you should take damage, but maybe it's an Athena thing
Bl1ghtn1n6: I forgot people dislike the power couple, I tend to prefer it a ton to the barge just bc it's real fast
wynternyghtynggale: hi everyone
ghyllnox: 2 down
Brozard: @Zaghrog I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I've still taken damage from it with Divine Dash
Pseudonym_Ken: @call_me_Aras Hmm, pretty sure I've done that now, but maybe just unlucky
SandwichKed: The barge is... easy.
TehAmelie: give em the em-barge-o
Invitare: you only get one miniboss
Pseudonym_Ken: Not a mini boss
Tom_Bruise: a skull doesn't necessarily mean mini-boss
EvilBadman: You already did a miniboss
PixelArtDragon: Sometimes "boss" is just "hard encounter"
Bl1ghtn1n6: minibosses are specifically skulls with an arrow
wildpeaks: putting the hell in bullet hell
Fruan: The skull has upticks by it. two for a mini boss. Just one is a room with armoured guys.
call_me_Aras: Cam, Medusa and Cyclop is miniboss, you won't see barge or witches if you get that
SandwichKed: this encounter destroyed me the first time I saw it
ghyllnox: Hammertime
Bl1ghtn1n6: these are just harder rooms with a greater reward

BrowneePoints: @Zaghrog nopes the first x hits from bosses
Bl1ghtn1n6: Toof
ContingentCat: * sergeModLove
EvilBadman: @Zaghrog Ignores first x bosses
Zaghrog: BrowneePoints ah right
EvilBadman: hit
InkyGhoast: toof
TehAmelie: we gonna defy so many deaths
Wolfstrike_NL: Teeth?
Zaghrog: thanks for the answers
Mister_BlueSky: Trip Defiance.
RandomTrivia: TOOF TOOF TOOF... wait, something isn't right...
planeswalkagogo: I am baffled by how quick that hit
planeswalkagogo: that was amazing
PixelArtDragon: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Saintnex: Def health right now I think
ghyllnox: Pro strat: don't die
ComradeMik: hermes has no boons directly affecting attacks
TehAmelie: winged feet will help with not getting hit right
Saintnex: We want to be around 250 health honestly
EvilBadman: @ComradeMik Increase to speed to both
Molvanian: Oooh, a stream with a live Cameron. Or at least a well preserved undead Cameron
Bl1ghtn1n6: 10 percent flat damage
TehAmelie: the damage multiplying stacking is real
SandwichKed: MOAR DAMAGE
GredGredmansson: I don't think he offers more speed unless you already have speed
Zaghrog: I think my favorite Hermes Boon is Hyper Sprint, it grants so much mobility. Also, if I'm lucky, I get Rush Delivery to go with it
Bl1ghtn1n6: Hyper Sprint + Rush Delivery is bonkers
PMAvers: But what if Chao's? A little Chao's, as a treat?
Tom_Bruise: The little hotwheels are susceptible to pillars and to projectiles
sivakrytos: which dope do we rope
Pseudonym_Ken: key
InkyGhoast: give charon present?
TehAmelie: sometimes when you get in the groove with the spear it seems the atatch reach is so big the throw is totally superfluous
TehAmelie: attack*
Kaorti: need a boon for that explosive shot
Saintnex: Boss room and hope for Asterius?
Elevation_4000_FT: kathle3HEX Ben Raid kathle3HEX
SandwichKed: And sometimes you get the horns.
Tom_Bruise: I love Asterius' haircut
TehAmelie: we have gone plaid?!
GredGredmansson: Hm, this is the first Asterius encounter on this file then
BlueMechanic: could be butterflies, could be cow friend
EvilBadman: @TehAmelie I took some time with Skelly to hone in on the spear range, cause it's 25% bigger than the spear itself
xantos69: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:28:01.

frostownik: benginRaid benginRaid
Saintnex: Best way to learn Asterius’ pattern too
matthaus_c: King These-nuts
GhostValv: Theseus is definitely a heel
adamjford: I'm still sorry about that
BrowneePoints: Asterius is a good boy and deserves good things.
TehAmelie: then again, Theseus is never out of character
phenexian: theseus is 100% playing to the crowd
InkyGhoast: Theseus insulted me and my mom by proxy
PixelArtDragon: Theseus is a heel who thinks he's a face
EvilBadman: Theseus is not a heel. Heel's don't get cheered by marks.
TehAmelie: dear Buddha. Theseus is Jared Leto
accountmadeforants: Shhh, kayfabe
RandomTrivia: Eyes front, Cameron!
RockPusher: eyes on the prize Cameron
Getter404: No fair, a bull boss shouldn't know how to weave around obstacles.
Molvanian: And if not the prize, then the giant bull man who is trying to bisect you.
InkyGhoast: oh wow i never noticed the crowd was here too
BoblinTheGoblin69: i wouldn't say your wrong, but you dont have the whole story. i think its both for the croud and him being an idiot
BrowneePoints: Don't forget your calls for big chunks of damage
EvilBadman: The support shade's here too
Zaghrog: This reminds me of how much power is gained through the mirror of night
GredGredmansson: You got this, Cam!
adamjford: based on current information, yes, he's clearly playing to the crowd. he can change his opinion on it or not as hey plays further
wildpeaks: that's ok, we didn't need all our innards
Tom_Bruise: I never noticed the little Zag fan in this arena
adamjford: as he plays further*
Getter404: I'm too used to the Achilles aspect, all that emergency mobility
shurtal: Broseidon, can i get a hand here?
BrowneePoints: BULLy that man
Brozard: lol just beat him too
glmdgrielson: Aw, I missed the bullfight!
GhostValv: oofa
RockPusher: Accept-a-bull
BrowneePoints: I like to think that Asterius bakes in his free time
Mr_Horrible: we've got fans sofiePog
RassilonDND: a real auSteer occasion
ContingentCat: Wow
TehAmelie: there's one shade in Elysium who's your fan
Getter404: Red Shade been busy
RandomTrivia: @RassilonDND That one was tenuous
Zaghrog: Getting to fight Asterius alone taught me how to fight Asterius. It was a huge step forward in how to beat the Theseus fight, I moved on from struggling with it very soon after
InkyGhoast: Flourish!
Saintnex: Yeee, our only fan :D
Kaorti: always
shurtal: god i hate Theseus with a passion
PMAvers: I wonder who red shade is.
GredGredmansson: @Zaghrog it's possible to fight Theseus without encountering Asterius first?
ComradeMik: i've seen some great art about what asterius gets up to in his free time
TehAmelie: clearly the ghost of communism
adamjford: Theseus is a heel because he's a guy I love to hate
SandwichKed: I can do it with AoE, but I still don't understand how to melee Theseus.
InkyGhoast: I always kill theseus first in those fights so I can have a fight with the true champion of elysium without distratctions
BrowneePoints: Achilles is the only Heel in this game
adamjford: booooo
Pseudonym_Ken: Has Cam used his cast since getting the Athena boon?
glmdgrielson: The butterflies of doom! ...what is this, Kirby?
kedgisgo: if you get Poseidon in the minotaur fight, you get a special dialog line
Zaghrog: GredGredmansson yup, the Asterius miniboss is just one of many different miniboss options
Saintnex: @gredgredmansson yup, just don’t have a mini boss room or different mini boss, it’s rng
JDogg2K4: But as heelish as he is, he still genuinely cares for Austerius
GredGredmansson: huh, all the runs i've seen before encountering Theseus show Asterius first
RandomTrivia: Cam saying "this honks on bobo" will NEVER fail to get me
RandomTrivia: LUL
RassilonDND: @RandomTrivia yeah. I was really lacking on the bovine inspiration on that quip
BrowneePoints: I also like how this game treats Achilles like the Myth does. he isn't a bad dude
BrowneePoints: He was just the Antagonist in someone's story
glmdgrielson: Lots of death here!
SandwichKed: that's a lot of crit
PMAvers: Well, you've got a bunch of death defies
Getter404: Been listening to too much Blank Check, where "honks" is a superlative due to Goose Game
Zaghrog: GredGredmansson then I'd say you were in luck. Asterius is not the worst miniboss to encounter, and teaches you things about the boss fight
musclewizzard123 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 45 months, currently on a 45 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, musclewizzard123! (Today's storm count: 51)
ComradeMik: i do appreciate how this game trains you to deal with the bosses of the biomes
Getter404: Yeah, the Omega Butterfly Ball is a MUCH worse miniboss in this area.
adamjford: yeah Butterfly Ball h o n k s
Saintnex: Oh right, I never caught on to that lol
Getter404: Has like ten thousand armor and ghost whisps are constantly flooding in and uuuugh
ComradeMik: that'll also allow your special to pierce theseus' shield
ComradeMik: which is neat
Pseudonym_Ken: I disagree, the Butterfly ball is way easier
Zaghrog: I've had some builds that totally annihilate the Butterfly Ball, but yeah it can be really hard
BrowneePoints: The tip to the spear Chuck, is to try and always put Asterius between you and him
JDogg2K4: Having a build that ruins the butterfly ball feels to good though
adamjford: with armor!
GredGredmansson: good thing you got that armor damage buff
Tom_Bruise: Cars and hothweels, that what she's got
PixelArtDragon: Who called Brinks?
A_Dub888: Ah yes armored boom cars, my absolute favorite Kappa
phenexian: the butterflyball is easier if your DPS can finish it quickly otherwise the shades get out of hand
ChaoticObserver: Great timing with the hammer
Getter404: Yeah, I was able to get a fist build going with Athena Primary Attack and you know what, Punching Butterflies feels pretty good
ComradeMik: there's a max number of shades that spawn in the butterfly ball fight tho
Saintnex: Their own explosions will still kill them with armour too I think
VTMonster: Son of Death vs... blutterblob?
monakai: What aspect is our spear?
Getter404: @glmdgrielson Chaos well
Pseudonym_Ken: Spin Attack is good against them
GredGredmansson: he's been grabbing health every chance he gets
Zaghrog: I think my fastest Butterfly Ball kill was with Lucifer gun, bomb heavy build
Gekyouryuu: 1 per butterfly
ComradeMik: but killing the ball fast does mean that you can cut the spawns short
glmdgrielson: Thank you, Getter.
GredGredmansson: @monakai 1st run
Getter404: Well? Pool? Whatever.
BrowneePoints: Different League. Boring but strong
SerGarretCameron: league is strong.
xantos69: I mean....All relationships ARE transactional. Some people are just bad at transactions.
Zaghrog: league is alright
PMAvers: Dying Lament is fun, for the exploding enemies thing
Kaorti: that plus weakness and we're talking
Critterbot: Basically 13% more health.
Getter404: I generally hate stuff that procs on deaths or getting hit, since I'm usually building for Bosses.
Zaghrog: Getter404 hard agree
BrowneePoints: @Getter404 Good thing Hades spawns adds like every 15s
phenexian: endboss always has things to kill though
shurtal: Tjat
JDogg2K4: I mean 2/5 bosses have things to kills
Zaghrog: Getter404 although I don't mind getting like a Curse when I'm heading into EM4 last boss
shurtal: That's not Allen, that's steve
JDogg2K4: so it's not the worst
Getter404: Allenocles
BrowneePoints: @JDogg2K4 3. Hydra heads/bone dudes count
monakai: Shove those shades into ghost lockers
JDogg2K4: I thought they did. My bad @BrowneePoints
PMAvers: Let's go to the store
Getter404: No heal. Only worship.
Koshindan: Not Talking Simulator
snowmonkey99: Zag doesn't talk to much? That's a sure sign the Olympians don't know you
phenexian: Mark is gold
NarishmaReborn: she might not get the point of the show
InkyGhoast: Exit wounds!
BrowneePoints: Mark is very good here
glmdgrielson: Look, she has a meeting to go to, alright.
Saintnex: Honestly with our health, we may want to play super conservatively with our special a lol
kedgisgo: that just proves she cant hear us
GredGredmansson: he uses it when it's at max
RassilonDND: I've always wondered why she made that joke, since those messages are all one way
GredGredmansson: and this gets it at max faster
Zaghrog: The healing situation reminds me of my favorite keepsake: the Feather Duster from Dusa.
Getter404: IIRC the communication from Olympus is one way, because Plot Reasons
phenexian: yeah, it's nyx's doing
Getter404: @phenexian Was trying not to go into specifics, but yet.
Getter404: yes*
Piratical_tendancies: I love the quips Zag has against the Narrator
phenexian: this is a spoilered stream isn't it?
GredGredmansson: wait...you're not Heracles
monakai: Theseus is best heel
Molvanian: Oh hey I just got back and it's the Greek John Cena
adamjford: I don't hate him because he's mean. I hate him because he's a dingus
ComradeMik: theseus is heel john cena
BrowneePoints: I don't think Theseus is a bad dude, but he IS a Chad
niccus: more of a medium brock lesnar
RassilonDND: Theseus feels more like Velveteen dream IMO
ComradeMik: he's also the closest this game gets to a villain
ArcOfTheConclave: Steiner Math?
BrowneePoints: Asterius is full on a super good guy
PMAvers: Dionisus also isn't a massive fan.
monakai: @RassilonDND spot on
GredGredmansson: GOLLLLLD
chaostreader: Brock Lesner. Doesn’t talk much, if I remember correctly.
Piratical_tendancies: Blaggard! Is that someone from a Blaggole?!
GhostValv: hah ya
Tom_Bruise: Oh yea. Asterius treats Zag with respect, so Theseus starts thinking Zag is trying to break up their friendship
snowmonkey99: To be fair, a few heels are just slightly turning up their natural nastiness
shurtal: The Extreme Measures Theseus makes his outside resemble his insides
SnowBuddy18: well, a chariot, but yeah
BoblinTheGoblin69: its for show, but he also doesnt ever figure out you are hades kid
EvilBadman: Again, if he were heel, the home crowd wouldn't be cheering him
A_Dub888: Not just one, TWO gattling guns
Saintnex: Eeeeh, he also talks a lot of heck about Achilles
Kaorti: daedalus
Gen2Gengar: This is the Ornstein and Smaugh fight all over again
Tom_Bruise: Daedalus made the chariot and matching mask. The mask was a joke
Zaghrog: While Theseus gets easier in EM, Asterius gets significantly harder
GredGredmansson: @EvilBadman He's the face all the Smarks hate
InkyGhoast: No, you can dodge it
shurtal: it' travles, not hitscan
VazSun: EM Theseus is easier but EM Asterius tho
adamjford: from the crowd's perspective, he's the face
BrowneePoints: it's very fast, but there IS a travel time
Invitare: the Theseus part gets easier, but Asterius gets much harder
InkyGhoast: call
TehAmelie: he never figures out you're not actually on an evil mission of malice and destruction either
EvilBadman: @GredGredmansson Yes
phenexian: call
Pseudonym_Ken: call?
snowmonkey99: greater call is up
BoblinTheGoblin69: call
VazSun: Asterius turns into a frickin Beyblade
Mr_Horrible: yo the dps on that call tho
Getter404: From GDC last week, apparently speedrunners PREFER Extreme Measures 2 because it gives the Hydra less room to move around in her chamber so they can just wail on her.
InkyGhoast: the spear uses the same bullseye timer as the spears
GredGredmansson: you used 1 earlier and twice here
ComradeMik: with the calls that make you invuln it's better to use them on cooldown.
divisiogames: you did great!
ghyllnox: Spoke too soon
BoblinTheGoblin69: the spear does a lot of damage
PMAvers: Meaty splort
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: could try to make the spear hit the bull for extra comments
ghyllnox: Hypnos baybee
Pseudonym_Ken: I find it more advantageous to target Theseus first
Saintnex: I hate dying to Theseus
divisiogames: theseus doesn't deserve asterius
RandomTrivia: Thanks Hypnos.....
BrowneePoints: There's a Duo that reduces enemy projectile speed by 30% and it makes Theseus LAUGHABLY easy
InkyGhoast: oh we should give hypnos a prezzie, he gives you money
SandwichKed: I don't mind Asterius. Theseus is about as close to unfair as you can get.
Zaghrog: I did Theseus first one time, then never went back
Gen2Gengar: Oh wow Hypnos sounds like Derek
Zaghrog: I mean I never did it again, sorry
Gekyouryuu: yeah, Hypnos' gift is 100 gold to start
jandalf_84: the worst thing about Hypnos is, he means well
RassilonDND: Does anyone else feel like throttling Hypnos? No? Just me?
Armyguy0: @Gen2Gengar why did you point that out?
EvilBadman: i do the Bull first and then blow my [REDACTED] when Asterius does his god call
divisiogames: hypnos grows on you
ghyllnox: Hypnos: You'll die so much you'll be famous! Hades: The dog is disappointed in you
Armyguy0: I hear it too now
Zaghrog: BrowneePoints I bleive it's in fact a 50% reduction IIRC
Saintnex: If we don’t have Cerberus’ gift, it’s really good
Getter404: @Gen2Gengar If you've ever watched any old Giant Bomb stuff, Hypnos is voiced by Greg Kasavin, lead designer at the studio.
Saintnex: Just straight more health
Zaghrog: the Cerberus Gift is great, yeah
ANeMzero: If blaseball has taught me anything it's that there is no problem with taking a little sippy
Tom_Bruise: and we don't even have enough gems to restore the gashes and pick up the fur
BrowneePoints: @Zaghrog Correct

Armyguy0: no came thats how you get Ians
bentropik: That's a sharp outfit cameron
DoctorHutch: just start buying thrift store knives
GredGredmansson: Sharpen More
ANeMzero: Sharpen your knife, sharpen your drills, sharpen your shovel
Armyguy0: Do you WANT Ians?
PMAvers: Ian: "Did somebody say SHARPENING KNIVES?!"
SeiichiSin: Just do the Monster Hunter thing, sharpen your hammer.
DrWreckage: True Grit
Koshindan: Then everything will be Gritty.
BrowneePoints: Gotta have the knives with the air release bevels too
Kaorti: Anyone read Pratchett's Reaper Man? The sharpening bit from that was good.
accountmadeforants: Sharpen your brass instruments...
RandomTrivia: Write that down as a TTSF idea for the after-times
ArcOfTheConclave: Dusa!
Gekyouryuu: @SeiichiSin why sharpen your hammer when you can sharpen your bagpipes?
Tom_Bruise: buy knives from one thriftshop, sharpen them, sell them to a second thriftshop
RassilonDND: Thats when you invest in a home smelter and then start polishing aluminum ingots
RandomTrivia: Cam & Ian sharpen the whole Moonbase
divisiogames: dusa is so perfect
Armyguy0: Dusa is a cute
Ritaspirithntr: Dusa is adorable!
BrowneePoints: Dusa, has a HUGE crush on Zagreus, also a nervous wreck
Tom_Bruise: "Good as new" as long as you don't mind the gashes

Fanboy_of_Bolas: nyx is def queen.
divisiogames: for the longest time my number one priority has been to max my relationship with dusa
Saintnex: Dang that special trade is harsh
PMAvers: "Yeah, well Dad can get stuffed."
BoblinTheGoblin69: you can give nectar to dad and hypnos
GredGredmansson: we're out now
InkyGhoast: now we can switch the talents!
divisiogames: this is honestly my favorite game
GredGredmansson: gonna check out the new talents?
BrowneePoints: Reminder that Nyx and Chaos can backhand Zeus without effort
Saintnex: Switching to the other health talent is pretty strong
monakai: This is my only UI critique in the game. The talent switching buttons are not obvious first time around imo
Gekyouryuu: oh, during the first hour that I missed, did we get the flashback scene?
Pseudonym_Ken: I like using the bow special at close range

divisiogames: i really hope cam gets the opportunity to "borrow" money from charon
GredGredmansson: @Gekyouryuu don't think so
shurtal: Aspect of Chiron Coronocht is my favorite weapon in this game
BrowneePoints: We can use Nyx' boon too
2Flower: Wait what? You can swap talents?
PMAvers: Especially if we're getting bonus darkness from the bow
Invitare: Aphrodite would probably be better, at least for attack
Saintnex: Nothing like health and exp
Zaghrog: Explosive Shot!
BrowneePoints: Explosive shot
Mister_BlueSky: Explodey Bow?
Pseudonym_Ken: Volley for close range bow
InkyGhoast: volley is real good
BrowneePoints: it does a MILLION damage
Tom_Bruise: Bomb arrows, Bomb arrows
Tom_Bruise: The best thing about LoZ: TP
Zaghrog: Explosive is massive damage
Pseudonym_Ken: Bombs arrows also good
RandomTrivia: That was certainly a sound
BrowneePoints: Also if we get another Hammer Explosive and Triple shot stack
accountmadeforants: I got Zeus's lightning bolts on the bow's special yesterday. Somehow the bolts seem to count as backstab damage when the enemy's facing towards you, which was neat.
InkyGhoast: maybe now you'll learn to use your special :P
Pseudonym_Ken: Gotta use special and cast more to go fast
PMAvers: It probably doesn't know either, since it no longer exists.
EvilBadman: Dash+charging bow is quicker than from standstill
Saintnex: Yeah that’s why I don’t like the explosive shot much
BrowneePoints: With Explosive you can half pull a lot
Ogrekidd: explosive shot lets you spam the bow as well, if you get spread shot with it is insanely good
Pseudonym_Ken: Horseshoes with handgrenades
ComradeMik: explosive shot turns the bow into a close range weapon
BrowneePoints: the damage is just so good that even without powershot quick tapping is good
ComradeMik: you're basically working off almost minimal charge
divisiogames: remember to be on the lookout for gold urns. they'll give you coin if you break them
PMAvers: Tjat
Pseudonym_Ken: Keys for weapon unlocks?
Zaghrog: yeah Explosive shot means one can just forget about Power Shotting, enough damage without it
ComradeMik: dash shot is the best dps
PMAvers: That's the nice thing about the Darkness to healing thing, since when you run into the first event you never have to take the healing option anymore.
Saintnex: Key probs to get all the weapons and mirror upgrades
Mister_BlueSky: Sniper Zag over here.
Tom_Bruise: you do wanna unlock all the weapons first so you have something to spend the titan blood on
divisiogames: share with your cousins, cam!
Zaghrog: Darkness>Keys, but keys are important
EvilBadman: Keys for all weapons for the Aspects.
phenexian: crit boom!
Pseudonym_Ken: Flourish to make it more useful
BrowneePoints: Deadly Strike with Splodey shot is *chef's kiss*
Fofo57007: get dat special
Invitare: it's only 15% though, and tiny damage
Saintnex: Darkness is really easy to pick up a lot of, keys are a lot more useful in the beginning
SnowBuddy18: ba da bing ba da crit
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: easier to choose now
Pseudonym_Ken: Go Left?
Zaghrog: Eclipse is probably my favorite Vhaos Boon, certainly the one I pick the most
GredGredmansson: sniper run
ghyllnox: Ohh clutch
BrowneePoints: If you get triple shot you can point blank power shot crit for over 1400
GredGredmansson: For Duos you need at least one boon from each god already
Kaorti: did cam buy the boon list?
JDogg2K4: Gotta buy that from the contractor
Zaghrog: do not have that yet
SerGarretCameron: the boon list is a contractor upgrade.
Tom_Bruise: you don't get the list of boons until later
Pseudonym_Ken: You don't have it unlocked yet
Piratical_tendancies: You need the upgrade for the codex
InkyGhoast: we don't have boon list yet, gotta pay that broker
monakai: I think we dont have that ability yet
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: boon list may need to be unlocked at contractor
shurtal: you have to unlock that feature
Invitare: Zeus and Artemis is a cast duo
GredGredmansson: You JUST got the code
phenexian: @LoadingReadyRun that's an upgrade
Kaorti: He's gotta buy it
Saintnex: We don’t have it yet
PixelArtDragon: I think you might need the Fated List
GredGredmansson: you don't have it yet
divisiogames: rip
Mister_BlueSky: You cannot get ye boon list.
Pseudonym_Ken: Vengeance here
Zaghrog: unlucky set of boons here
glmdgrielson: Hay, game mechanics confusion!
Pseudonym_Ken: No they are not
divisiogames: i always go with dash damage
Saintnex: Vengeance prob
ghyllnox: Reflexes?
divisiogames: ABD, always be dashing
Piratical_tendancies: dash
Pseudonym_Ken: Right, of course
GredGredmansson: zeus has a lot of prereqs
elah806: Bold of Zeus to assume we would get hit
Zaghrog: Vengeance is one way to satisfy one condition on the Ares/Zeus Duo
BrowneePoints: Yea, Louts just look like fat Trump to me. I can't unsee it
divisiogames: i hate doomstones
Zaghrog: I find Doomstones not very hard, it rarely makes me move much
PMAvers: I feel like Deadlands is the doomstone's favorite RPG. Because it's full of ghost rock.
GredGredmansson: better dash
phenexian: reflect on bow is amazing
Pseudonym_Ken: Flourish is good for making breathing room
Nadriachi: Epic Divine Flourish tho
phenexian: special I mean
RandomTrivia: I hope Zeus doesn't mind...
divisiogames: @Zaghrog that's my issue with them. i'm always dashing lol
GredGredmansson: When a boon is replaced, it will ALWAYS be higher rarity
GredGredmansson: so if you get another dash offered it will be Epic level
Zaghrog: divisiogames obviously depends on what weapon you're wielding
monakai: Who can resist i frames?
PMAvers: This feels like a moment where Adam leans his head in. "I felt a big number."
Saintnex: Flourish is hecking good to clear bullet hell situations
divisiogames: true
SerGarretCameron: Careful, Than, we're coming for your damage ranking.
glmdgrielson: Eyeballs!
divisiogames: extra rewards
GredGredmansson: More Darkness and Gemstones
BrowneePoints: Also, if we get the ares boon that buffs our next shot after a kill? *chef's kiss*
A_Dub888: Get more darkness and gems
Pseudonym_Ken: Extra darkness and gems
divisiogames: darkness, treasure, coin
phenexian: refelct flourish lets you just END tisiphone
Zaghrog: Chaos Boon was Eclipse: more gems and Darknesss
Zaghrog: phenexian eh, Dashing also does that pretty well
divisiogames: you sound like hypnos
divisiogames: YES
phenexian: @Zaghrog i does, but no where near as entertainingly
Pseudonym_Ken: Sisyphus!
GredGredmansson: Time, or gifts?
BrowneePoints: Bouldy is WAAAAAY late
monakai: Probably after contract
Saintnex: Time for full health
goatprince: it takes multiple nectars too, i think
Invitare: You just have to believe in the Bouldy who believes in you
Zaghrog: phenexian fair enough. I admit I'm not a big fan of deflecting with anything other than the dash
BrowneePoints: @goatprince Yea I'm 5 nectars in with no bouldy yet
GredGredmansson: i don't think you have any
divisiogames: you don't have any i don't think
Fruan: Speaking to Bouldy is your reward for [redacted], isn't it?
wildpeaks: happy little boulder
GredGredmansson: He's like Eurydice, but in Tartarus
BrowneePoints: @GredGredmansson Patroclus*
GredGredmansson: that's Elysium

phenexian: @Zaghrog there are definately adventages to ranged deflects, your dash already grants invulnerability, being able to protect yourself on attacks has real value, and athena has a strong damage multiplier
Saintnex: Just that look of exasperation lol
BrowneePoints: @GredGredmansson I meant Sis and Patro are straight up mirrors of each other. Eurydice is more unique
BrowneePoints: Hermes
QuietDesigns: Hermes
divisiogames: hermes makes you faster
BrowneePoints: hermes for atk speed up

glmdgrielson: Thank you for the useful response, Charon.
ChaoticObserver: Mondays, am I right Charon?
Weagle: Given that a lot of the Greek places near me offer fries
GredGredmansson: I always thought that Charon had only one eye, and not that his hat was just covering it
divisiogames: i think most of the gods don't call him by his name

misterred_sayshi: To the vods I guess
Saintnex: at least for one more stream after this one
Saintnex: with guest Serge I believe
glmdgrielson: When do they plan on stopping the Hades streams?

GredGredmansson: Zag and Hades
goatprince: zagreus and thanatos
BrowneePoints: We can use Nyx'
SnowBuddy18: Zag and Meg
Saintnex: the Olympians and Hades too?
blamemyphone: how does he not have the collar?
blamemyphone: I thought you got that one at the start?
GredGredmansson: @blamemyphone he never gifted to the dog
Mangledpixel: so, essentially Zagreus is Dr Sam Beckett
blamemyphone: oooh
DrWreckage: There is SO much story left where you are Cori
NarishmaReborn: Do we learn more about Skelly?
mowdownjoe: The Skelly Statues are... not great rewards. And 32-heat is so much.
Tom_Bruise: I also have to beat the game at Heat 32... god that's hard
goatprince: the game's good at having resolutions that aren't cut and dry. like goes on and you gotta work on it to actually improve
Neddy471: I'm 100 runs in, and I'm not even finished with character development.
GredGredmansson: @goatprince Dusa's route is a good example of that
BrowneePoints: This game treats relationships like the greeks treated the gods. Human and fallible
EvilBadman: Yeah, Cameron's got a lot of game runway ahead of him. Like "heat" isn't even a thing he knows about.
Saintnex: Yea you get to what you think is a resolution, and then they keep going
Piratical_tendancies: moar crit!
GredGredmansson: People don't go away just because you're done with them, after all
Saintnex: even with Hades, it feels very real
glmdgrielson: Hades: How to Deal with People You Can't Stand!
Neddy471: I mean, from my understanding of what's going on right here is that: "Open and heartfelt communication, even about painful and embarassing subjects, is healing."
BrowneePoints: Clean Kill
InkyGhoast: support fire!
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: support fire is nice
BrowneePoints: we don't attack fast enough for support fire
Invitare: Support Fire on the bow is not though
Kaorti: support fire isn't a good take here
Invitare: it's so slow
Kaorti: true shot might be nice
Kumakaori: support fire on fists is fun XD;.
Saintnex: I am always in to support fire, we have our special that can do a fair bit of hits
BrowneePoints: Support Fire on Fists and Rail is UNREASONABLE
BrowneePoints: ooo Bronze Skin
Saintnex: After so many runs, this is still the mini boss I hate the most
glmdgrielson: Technically, it's not 20 damage. It's 16 damage.
ArkhamArchivist: love Athena Call
Kumakaori: me: slams aid.
GredGredmansson: No
BrowneePoints: Yes.
BrowneePoints: if you deflect attacks it does
EvilBadman: Athena call is GREAT
DrWreckage: It's awesome
ArbalestTheGeni: Athena's call does lots of damage
Kaorti: no, it's a long duration shield
Kumakaori: makes you invincible and you still attack
Saintnex: you can still hit while using Athena's call
Kaorti: deflect can do some damage, but the call itself doesn't do damage
A_Dub888: Athena's call allows you to sit still, attack, and laugh at bosses
SerGarretCameron: the call doesn't damage, but is often useful. Expose is much better.
EvilBadman: Level 1 Call is 1.5 IMMUNE
EvilBadman: If you pom it it goes to 2 seconds
Kaorti: A couple of levels in the call helps extend the duration too
glmdgrielson: Ah, the joys of a Starman on standby.
Saintnex: the pom or ambrosia is always my choice, they just make your existing boons so good
ComradeMik: team, why did i fuck with charon?
Fruan: Increased rarity is good for when you're hunting for a duo or legendary
ComradeMik: i have regreat
Gooseblast: I just want to stay and sing with Eurydice BibleThump
Invitare: interesting thing: You can get that song to Orpheus too. When he sings it, it's sad and regretful, but when Eurydice does it's more like a celebration of freedom
BrowneePoints: cmon atk speed!
ChaoticObserver: I like Quick Favor
ChaoticObserver: Getting calls that much faster is so good
EvilBadman: Quick Favor. Your call is an oh shit button you shouldn't be afraid to use.
ContingentCat: lrrFINE
Saintnex: we also really need more health, or we are in danger of getting one hot
GredGredmansson: THAT DAMAGE
Invitare: Jesus those crits
Faulpyr: What did we do to the bow to get that damage?!
EvilBadman: Explosive shot + Arti
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: call
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: better than dying without using it
BrowneePoints: and ended with a crit
GredGredmansson: how did we recover that much health after the fight
BrowneePoints: Darkness
EvilBadman: Darkness to health mirror talent
BrowneePoints: 30hp for every 100
Invitare: can a God born and trapped in the Underworld really be called "alive"?
GredGredmansson: right, forgot about that
GredGredmansson: @Invitare the game gets into that
BrowneePoints: K, we just need triple shot and an atk speed up
EvilBadman: I forget about it too, since I'm usually pushing heat, and darkness only drops from bosses if not a diamon/blood
BrowneePoints: so come on hermes and Daedalus!
noSmokeFire: @Invitare just because you go there when you die doesn't mean nobody can live there
GredGredmansson: tbf Asphodel isn't normally supposed to be like that
BrowneePoints: Yea, asphodel is supposed to be a boring ass, but not unbeautiful field
GredGredmansson: basically Underworld Purgatory
GredGredmansson: for normal people deaths
Saintnex: Im pretty sure if you bounce back the big ball of bullets, when they split up, the smaller ones cant hurt you
BrowneePoints: 4 digits!
Mollylele: these roombas be angry
EvilBadman: Paddy, get your DD back
BrowneePoints: Hammer
Kaorti: hammer can come back around though
Kaorti: pat won't
EvilBadman: Oh wait lol
GredGredmansson: Hammer will come back
PMAvers: He replenishes *all* Death Defiances.
Tom_Bruise: or the rapidfire
GredGredmansson: aren't you guaranteed 2 hammers in every run?
EvilBadman: Yes
DiscordianTokkan: Not guaranteed, no
BrowneePoints: if we get triple shot we're in business
Tom_Bruise: not if you don't go to the hammer rooms
ChaoticObserver: Besides, I think Cam only has 1 DD anyway
DiscordianTokkan: I've had runs where I've only seen one chance at a hammer
PixelArtDragon: Maybe you get Point Blank or Sniper Shot
NightValien28: ChaoticObserver cam has 2
NightValien28: nyeeeh boom
ChaoticObserver: But the 2nd is from the tooth, which hasn't been used
Kaorti: that seems fun
BrowneePoints: HAHAHA
TheWriterAleph: pop pop
NightValien28: surely patroculus will help
lightfoot14: the little icon in the circle indicates where it's from
InkyGhoast: yes! stack the shot!
BrowneePoints: Yes Cam, it stacks
Invitare: you haven't been using the Power Shot, but if youre gonna, that's the one
Bearudite: POWER POWER shot
A_Dub888: Perfect shot sounds nuts with what we have
Invitare: I'm not sure it IS faster, just easier
NightValien28: charged volley can be really strong
DiscordianTokkan: Hate Orb!
DiscordianTokkan: lrrCIRCLE
TheWriterAleph: "Oh, no! Butterflies!" [heavy metal intensifies]
Saintnex: its not faster, its just a bit of a larger window for us to release for the power shot
Tom_Bruise: Go for the ball's throat!
DiscordianTokkan: lrrCIRCLE_TK
Carsonogenics_: god i hate this idiot butterfly
A_Dub888: Auto aim pls
Neddy471: Kill the butterfly ball first.
EvilBadman: He was trying to, Neddy471
DiscordianTokkan: Autoaim, whyyyy
GredGredmansson: Is Cam being Taunted?
Carsonogenics_: god i hope we find patty
GredGredmansson: that would be a cool mechanic
Neddy471: @EvilBadman Ah, sorry, thought I heard someone say that chat was telling him to kill everyone first.
NightValien28: patty will save us
EvilBadman: We passed on paddy, we had full DD
GredGredmansson: @Carsonogenics_ we did find him, we went the other way
Kumakaori: we passed up paddy
BrowneePoints: yea, Auto Aim fought you on that
Carsonogenics_: oh that's a rip
Neddy471: And, this is why I don't like the Bow.
NightValien28: oh poop
ANeMzero: This is why I can't do attack focused boiw builds. Buff Special, run up to mobs and unload 10 arrows into their face.
ArchAnthius: I got this game for Christmas I've been playing it a lot it's so fun.
GredGredmansson: @Neddy471 Zagreus himself said that
GredGredmansson: about the ball
noSmokeFire: if autoaim is being a butt, I think you can turn it off
Pseudonym_Ken: Dash-Attack will go pretty fast with this build
bentropik: would mouse/keyboard be better for bow runs?
Neddy471: @GredGredmansson HA! Sorry, throught I was pushing back against disinformation. My apologies, I'll go back to lurking.
Carsonogenics_: @bentropik i definitely rprefer it for the ranged weapons but it's personal preference really
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: call
GredGredmansson: downsides of sniper build
Saintnex: im pretty sure I ran to this same problem with the bow and explosive shot, where I needed to hit way more, and at specific enemies, and the game just said nope
theonlybm: You did good
noSmokeFire: in an otherwise very polished game, suddenly aiming at space because you nudged the controller by a zettameter is kind of glaring
countingku: Those dudes are some PITA
SnowBuddy18: Dusa's so cute
Saintnex: Yea, I would not worry too much about getting gems at this stage, its mostly cosmetic, and there are better things to get?
InkyGhoast: but if we get gems we get to play happy home designer
GredGredmansson: Yeah, I think the other guy's doing ok
EvilBadman: Maybe Grape Leaves?
KodeMage: onion variant?
Mangledpixel: some form of leafy green
Saintnex: remember folks, dont eat the pomegranates :p
niccus: the bad part of a leek
GredGredmansson: other time its a new upgrade or a feature
Mister_BlueSky: You never feel like you're just spinning your tires, not making any progress.
EvilBadman: Like you don't see credits until you beat the game [redacted] times
EvilBadman: but each win builds on the story
GredGredmansson: each LOSS builds on the story
EvilBadman: Also that
Saintnex: the game feels alive, where characters always seem to active and doing things, or talking
Mangledpixel: more than that, the constant losses are PART of the story
Musicsquid: I have never died and felt like I didn’t learn something
GredGredmansson: Fighting Meg's Sisters
Mister_Hush: Characterizing death in this game as failure, I think, misses the point
GredGredmansson: it is failure, but strength comes from failure
JDogg2K4: murder?
kalira77: "unlocking your grandmother" -- LRR out of context
GredGredmansson: failure is not the end
x0den: she learns one other word
Saintnex: Im in the process of helping Tisiphone learn to say happy
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: so good at cutting onions it becomes your purpose for all of eternity
s0lesurviv0r: DLC for Hades, fancier chopwork
GredGredmansson: and each playthrough is unique too
GredGredmansson: I've never seen anyone unlock Eurydice before Orpheus
niccus: the onion cutting isn't for eating, it's for the air
NightValien28: the knife flourish is great
Ritaspirithntr: tqsKnife
Saintnex: our mum
tenthtechpriest: quiet cam PTSD from the satyr halls
GredGredmansson: This episode, met Chaos, Sisyphus, Theseus and Asterius
GredGredmansson: This is a fun part
ArkhamArchivist: Oh yeah, so is the Narrator supposed to be Homer?
Invitare: he never wears shoes
goatprince: no
Pseudonym_Ken: He doesn't wear shoes
Kaorti: don't think he has shoes - they'd catch fire
Invitare: his feet are on fire
bentropik: show feet?
goatprince: he has fire feet.
Fruan: Zagreus' feet are on fire! He can't wear shoes
Piratical_tendancies: no, his feet are burny
GredGredmansson: @ArkhamArchivist it is hinted, but never confirmed
DiscordianTokkan: Fire feetsies
PixelArtDragon: His fire feet are important
ContingentCat: shoes made of fire
A_Dub888: I love Zag's interactions with the narrator
DiscordianTokkan: Zagreus is bad at patreon; always shows feet
EvilBadman: @ArkhamArchivist there's the Poet Statue you can buy that is implied to be homer and the Narrator speaks highly of him
A_Dub888: t h e n o t e
Mangledpixel: The Note
Gekyouryuu: I love this bit
Invitare: she signs her name in all caps
tenthtechpriest: good job narrator
Saintnex: whoops
GredGredmansson: That's right. Zagreus found out about the mother because of spoilers.
DiscordianTokkan: Narrator done goofed
Gekyouryuu: there it is!
Gekyouryuu: love it
SytYoshi: amytfaWalnut
Easilycrazyhat: I love the Zag/Narrator interaction XD
Saintnex: yes "chance"
GredGredmansson: oops
TheWriterAleph: flustered narrator is a great trope
Pheonix888: Entirely?
Mangledpixel: Percy Phone
LurkerSpine: I honestly didn't know Zagreus' parentage was a mystery when I played this game. I just assumed his parents were Hades and Persephone
rentar42: I love that the narrator is so incredibly unreliably. Especially when completing a run after "finishing" the game.
countingku: SPOILER ALERT lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL bad narrator!
GredGredmansson: @LurkerSpine if you know your mythology that's to be expected

LurkerSpine: @GredGredmansson Yeah, unfortunately is was incredibly frustrating when I tried to watch Serge played this, asked a question about Persephone, and got my question deleted. And the only explanation I got was "no spoilers" even though I never played the game lol
DiscordianTokkan: @Piratical_tendancies Amazing

Seagulyus: ArcOfTheConclave I dont know if it is 100% what you are looking for, but from what I've seen the narrator in Darkest Dungeon seems to take glee in announcing your pain
DiscordianTokkan: @LurkerSpine One thing that TQ did for her blind playthrough for the new Stardew stuff is, to help with people Knowing vs Guessing, telling people to have "Guess:" added to the front of the text

Seagulyus: yeah I figured that Zarano, I'm just...never heard of it myself y'know?
Mysticman89: I am surprised and slightly impressed the first result for lesbos is in fact the greek island.
LordZarano: Yeah, right?
Seagulyus: well Mysticman89 its a city in Greece (Lesbos/Lesvos) so I assumed that would be the top result
Seagulyus: and apparently the poet Sappho lived in Lesbos, and rumors of her homosexuality are where the origins of the term lesbian come from
Mysticman89: well I mean, is it the result that the majority of people would actually be looking for? Search engines like to be clever and give you what you want and not necessarily what you directly searched for.
Mysticman89: but yes, reading through the wiki page now because wiki is a rabbit hole
blip2004: more likely someone paid google to have the island be the first result
Seagulyus: yeah I do understand that - but lesbos being the name of a place versus a term used to abbreviate another word
LordZarano: @blip2004 It's also the first result on DuckDuckGo
Mysticman89: digging deeper, even the first 5 pages of google results, and even google images is behaving despite my lack of filtering. Good job search engine I guess.
