Holy fucking shit! 36 min!?!?!??!?! Damn bro. Thats good. I though a few hours was impressive...

#3 Posted by BinaryDragon (638 posts) -

What's your time?

#4 Posted by ElectricBoogaloo (352 posts) -

I've only been through it once, got 8 hours 3 minutes playing on hardcore and getting 100% of items. Think I finished around level 34.

I think screens are going to have to be in order for this thread...to prevent...*ahem* time manipulations.
 
Wow, time manipulations. That sounds bad ass.

Was this with the sequence break? The best time I have is either 1:15 or 1:16 on my minimalist run, which is before the secret was discovered.

I went through and got the minimalist achievement this morning.  I didn't check the time exactly, but it was around 2 hours.

yes ofcourse. People have done better (approx 36 people) But it's not the best run in the world I made quite a few mistakes I think i could beat it if I really wanted to. Time will tell.

I'll show you guys my playtime when it never comes out for the PC. 
 
Gotta go strangle my pillow, which is soaked in my tears.

I'm in that first picture.  Yeah!  No extra work for me. 
 
In my defense though, most of that was done on Insane, I got 8% of the pickups, I died 4 times, and I went the wrong way once which cost me 3 minutes.  So, a casual run could probably be done (by me) in less than 30 minutes, no problem.

Just made my first legitimate speed run attempt and came in at 37:32.
I messed up quite a few times. I feel like I could definitely shave at least 10 minutes off of that with practice.

I got 2.5 hours on my first insane runthrough.

#13 Posted by and333 (842 posts) -

1:42:00 Though I dont have the proof right now cause i'm stuck doing something right now will post proof in a few!

#14 Posted by supermike6 (3556 posts) -

Like 3 hours lol. I can't speed run because I end up making too many mistkes. I prefer to take my time. And that was my minimalist run.

#15 Posted by and333 (842 posts) -
@supermike6: *pst* secret to get a run under 3 hours or 1 hour for a matter of fact has nothing to do with skill, it has to do....with the foam gun! So but i'm gonna be bitching for awhile about the "totally rad" sequence breaking in the game!

@and333: How do you do this?
#17 Posted by supermike6 (3556 posts) -

I tried the sequence breaking but I always die in the room you fall in with the two walls going up and down. I can never make the jump.

#18 Posted by and333 (842 posts) -
@Druminator: Theres to ways one which uses the golden guns and a "secret" room and another that uses that unlimited foam gun ammo you get when you level to 30 I belive. After getting the foam gun with unlimited ammo you can beat the game quick by skipping certain parts as far as I know the only thing you have to do after getting the Foam gun is see your girlfriend get taken away for a second time then go straight to where you save her, using the foam gun to make bridges. Check out the cool guide on shadow complex's page here on the giantbomb for in depth on how to get the insurgance run speed run...run!

@BinaryDragon: What's the deal with adding two extra seconds on to my time? I did it in 37:32 instead of 37:34.
LOL.

Soz fixed now.
#21 Posted by tranquilchaos (573 posts) -

I got 4 hrs 30 mins. on my first go. I'm looking to try and take my time with the second as opposed to doing it faster. 
 
I also think that anything that breaks the sequence should be disqualified of any bragging rights. But, hey thats just me. I'm sure plenty of people are well proud of their bug exploits instead of their gaming prowess. I saw them all the time back in my halo 3 days...

#22 Posted by Chaser324 (6394 posts) -
@tranquilchaos: The thing is...this really isn't a bug exploit that we're using to achieve these times. This is a sequence breaking mechanism that the developers intentionally put into the game. Sure, it's obscure, and you would probably never find it unless someone told you about it, but it isn't a bug.

They are intentional? I didn't know that. Seems like kind of a bad idea... *shrug*

#24 Posted by Snipzor (3317 posts) -

I still haven't done the sequence break, not yet anyways.

Wow that's one quick play through.  I finished my first play through the other day at about six and a half hours, nowhere near as impressive

top score on the leader board as of like fifteen minutes ago is 18 minutes 29 seconds which is just absurd.
