Default Deej and Addy's Mega Man X Race

So earlier this week we decided to race through Mega Man X, start to finish*. Deej is currently getting set up, I'm at the title screen right now. 8D

Anywho, we're going to have timers and shit, as well as start at the same time. Deej will be broadcasting his run on the internets! So I'll edit this post with a link once it gets going.
Edit - http://www.justin.tv/pontifcation
Go go go! If you want to join in the chat, you need an account.

I sadly can't do a broadcast - maybe if I can get a webcam figured out, though I expect the quality to be terrible. I'll be posting updates on where I am at periodically, however.

*rules are as follow - Timer starts when we press start, ends as soon as X teleports out of the final boss area. Collect as many powerups as you want, but 100% completion is not necessary.


Anywho. Place your bets or somethin'.

I mmmaybe should have put this in Retrospective, but this should be fine, too. More people will see it at least.

I have the idea that Deej is horrible at videogames so I have 25 cents on Addy.

1:01:28 is my final time. (I CANNOT BEAT THIS GAME IN UNDER AN HOUR I SWEAR. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE BEATEN IT IN 1:01.)

Order was, as always, Chill > Storm > Spark > Flame > Armored > Launch > Boomer > Sting, and I only got two e-tanks, the armor and leg upgrades. (Gun upgrade from Zero.) A couple heart tanks, I can't think of which... Died twice on Dog Sigma.

Next time I do this I will put up a webcam or something so people can watch both.

She flies through the first 8. I think she knows what to do to shave time.

I watched a speed run video on Youtube and they do it in a really different order. I get twitchy on bosses and I do this order because I have their weakness, typically. The only ones I don't are Chill and Storm, and I kill Storm in the exact same time with the buster as I do with Sting's weapon.

I SUPPOSE I COULD TRY THIS IF I REALLY WANTED TO.

I really just need to stop dying on Dog Sigma.

edit : ugh
:|

I I I I I I I I I god I hate that

No obviously she doesn't or she wouldn't keep getting the same time.

Just because you have an order you are comfortable with doesn't mean that it is the optimal order.

She dies after the first eight.

I never said she is using the "optimal order", I just suggested that changing the order of the first 8 may not be the best way to quickly shave time right now.

The only way I can see me shaving more time off the first eight is if I get past more enemies without getting hurt, and stop getting upgrades entirely. The armor upgrade is a big'un, but I fkn need it to not die.

I am getting this time because I kill Sigma's Dog and Sigma three times. Kill dog, kill Sigma, Dog Sigma kills me. Refill on worms, kill dog, kill Sigma, Dog Sigma kills me. Refill again, kill them all. bam.

That's what happened on my last run too. T_T


Also yeah. I do not die on the first eight.

BTW, DOE - I hold the controller like that sometimes. You kinda need to if you wanna dash and charge shots at the same time.

Putting something on a shoulder button works too.

When I play X4 I double tap dash a lot if I'm trying to hold charge.

I could try that. I even considered it before this run.

Also, I discovered how e-tanks work in this game - if you aren't quite dying, they don't fill you up 100%, even if they are 100% full. :| I'm at like 1/3 health - enough for Dog Sigma to kill me with a flame - and I use the tank to be safe and it fills me up to like 80%. When I was one hit from death, it completely filled it. I HAD NO IDEA.

I could be wrong. I just can't think of where it'll help. ;-;

I have little patience in watching a speed run video because they are still like 35+ minutes long. 3:


Edit : wow apparently I went back in time when I made this post, forgetting the last 3+ posts that were made. Go me.

Deej's final time was 1:31:16, and then he started playing Shadow of the Colossus.

So yeah, Deej playing Shadow of the Colossus @ http://www.justin.tv/pontifcation
