I'm a Golden God... finally.

 I know I'm not the first to S-Rank this game, but man... This feel fucking great.  I got more than 15k deaths, my fingers hurt like a bitch, and I won't probably be able to hold a 360 controller for a week. But I fucking did it. This must be, by far, the hardest, most time consuming gaming achievement I ever got... and probably will ever get. 
 
Needless to say, I will never, ever touch Super Meat Boy again :P

I bow before thee, yee braved lands most men give up on two days in. Congrats.  What was the hardest part?

Posted by Azteck

Dammit. I guess I gotta beat it too..

Now you need to get the PC version and S rank that. The PC version has "iron man run" achievements for every world, in which you have to beat the entire world from start to finish without dying once. If anyone ever manages to S rank the PC version, they will get my total and unreserved respect.

I admit that The Guy! wasn't that hard. It only took me two and a half hours to beat all three levels of the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarp zooooooone. I guess the later Dark levels in The End and the Cotton Alley were harder. 7-20 was hell to A+. 7-20X wasn't so hard, mainly because I had developed muscle memory from playing the Light version, so I could time me jumps almost perfectly. But, sure, the last few levels are a bitch.

Well, I won't. Seriously, I'm not getting even near the PC version. Those Achievements are INSANE. On the other hand, they have Mr. Minecraft, right? He can make "Ironmaning" the different chapters much easier, if I'm not mistaken. 
 
I'm watching Hamster's Super Meat Boy run and, oh boy, how much more amusing is watching others play this game now that I've beaten it. I can't believe I went through all that. Seriously, it's hilarious. Highly recommended.

Does Giant Bomb show you how rare an S rank for Super Meat Boy is?

It does, but 360 Achievements are not updating as they should right now. AFAIK, they have been fixed, but updating the database for everyone is taking its sweet time. Premium members go first, then us free members, if I'm not mistaken. Still, only 86 members had the I'm a Golden God achievement last time I checked.

I'm on my way to getting the achievement. 21 dark world levels left, and some bandages in Rapture. 
 
You're not competing against any of your friends for leaderboard stuff, then? If you're interested, send me a friend request on Xbox Live, as I'm sick of only having my one friend to compete with.

Never the less, that's something. I'm impressed. I have no wish to play this game. I'm not sure why. Maybe not my thing, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate an accomplishment. I've seen what the game can do. Well done.

Good luck getting this one:

I did everything there is to do in the XBLA version, and just the thought of trying to beat all levels in the dark world Cotton Alley without dying makes me shudder.

Well then fuck. 
 
Also of note: I'm doing this all on a ported version of Steam so I can run it on my Mac. It has a few minor quirks, the kind that might fuck this up for me. 
 
On the plus side though, my DualShock 3 is working quite well.

It's actually not possible to S rank the PC version right now because Giantbomb detects an achievement for the game that doesn't actually exist.

I can say with certainty that I will never do it. ^^

Posted by mnzy

I S-ranked it too, today 8)
But I still got stuff to do, I think I will try.

Posted by CptChiken

I think im at 60% at the moment, i dont think i'll ever get The guy though, its so fucking hard.

Posted by emem
@JoeyRavn: I just 100% the game, too. But I still have to beat and A+ the last Dark World level of the Cotton Alley and I think it's pretty weird to get the golden god achievement even if you haven't completed everything.
