Bastion, oppose all idols NG+ @ 6pm PST - 3/3/14
As the title says. I'll be livestreaming to http://Hitbox.tv/3bx @ 6pm PST / 9pm EST.

Objective: Oppose all idols at all times and run through NG+. Looking for possibly new dialogue. I'll be using a Machete and Bow through most of the game, as I found that works best for my play-style along with countering some of the idols.

Stream: It will be at 3750kbps, I like high quality. This is quite a requirement but it looks nice in the end. I'll be streaming 1080@45fps so make sure your computer can handle that quality or it might overheat and die!

Date/Time: 3/3/14 @ 6pm PST

Notes: I schedule Bastion currently once a week, along with many other games. If I scheduled it more than once a week I feel like I'd roll through the entire thing too fast. Either way, I enjoy the game; minus the auto-target from using a shield. You can go to my Steamgroup to find anything else that is scheduled for the week.

I tried bow and machete + all idols and I can tell you now that it's almost impossible to kill high-HP enemies like the pods that spawn Stinkeyes endlessly because your weapons just don't do enough damage. Enemy regen is based on max health and your high hit count with machete triggers Olak repeatedly so they just heal up. You can't go melee/crit with the machete because turning on Acobi + Hense means you instantly take off over half your health for killing a single enemy in melee.
I completed the first playthrough (10 Idols, all I had access to) with Machete/Bow vs Idols. I had no problem fighting creatures, especially the pods and the stinkeyes. I would kite the Stinkeyes around and either melee hit/run the pod for bleed and then roll far away to land an arrow for high damage, and repeat. Then once all of the pods were dead I simply aimed a shot away from the stinkeyes while moving, and turn around and power-shot them.

However, this was without Olak. I plan to stream this again and continue. Currently stuck on the Smoking-pipe dream, due to some game mishaps.
