did you get the achievement/trophy?   i thought about it for a second and then thought to myself, "deary me, that sounds impossible".   still,. it has always annoyed me i don't have 100% on braid.

 

I have it. :)

Took me a few tries, but not giving up is the key. The worst part of the speedrunning is the last damn chapter before 1. The one where you have to use Tim's engagement ring to slowdown time.  Easily twenty unavoidable minutes are sunk there.

So in year's time, Nintendo went from this:

yeah, i was thinking about that too.  but, unless there is a better way to solve it, the puzzle you have to jump off the ladder and land on top of the spiny things head in order to get the key always killed me.  i did a practise playthough in preperation for the speed run but i just couldn't manage to get that jump timed right.  was always like 20 minutes just on that one puzzle for me.

I think even with such amount of wasted time, you can still make it. The only thing you have to bear in mind when doing the speedrun is that the game is kinda cheating on you: it asks you to do it under 45 minutes, but 1. will ALWAYS eat 5 minutes of the overall time, no matter how you do it.

 

If the time has gone over 40:00 minutes and you haven't entered 1. yet, it's game over.



Source? Because that's really cool if true!

I've honestly never found any enjoyement watching Let's Play videos, outside of seeing the first minutes of a game that hasn't released in order to get me hyped. (But a full walkthrough?! C'mon!).

 

I love speedruns, because the dude playing has to challenge himself into knowing every single secret the game can behold, and exploit it into his advantage. Watching a video of a dude beating Dark Souls 2 under 25 minutes is fun. Watching a Let's Play of about thirty hours of a dude dying over and over and being completely clueless is not.


You liked that video? I found it quite boring, cause it was all based on glitches.

There's different kinds of speedruns. Generally, any% allows glitch-exploiting since that's in-game gameplay that anyone can do, if skilled enough. There's also the ALL BOSSES speedrun in two hours, which is awesome as well.
