Thread: First Round Cuts

I thought it would be good to explain some stuff. Since I got the new Festival of Blood PB, I've been doing BioShock 2 non-stop. I said it was going to be hard to PB and it's being really tough to get runs going since my PB has mostly everything first try. I've got something new though, as one of the skips I thought it was inconsistent, turns out I could find a viable set-up, it means I can save 20-30 more seconds. As of now, I've got a run 5 secs off my PB, soon I'll PB I hope.

I've also have to explain that even though my PBs for BioShock 1 (360) and Chains of Olympus are somewhat old, don't mind the date, they're really updated, I'll keep to PB on those once I'm done with BioShock 2, but as I only have weekends to do runs it's going to take me a while.

Another thing, about doing my runs on Xbox 360 - Version differences are not that huge, although loading screens are longer, but I'm used to playing these versions and used to controller%, also BioShock 2 has to be Xbox 360 because I'd have to grind hard to be able to run PC at ESA and with the lack of time I can't really do it, differences in 2 are huge, skips are different to setup since the fps makes the game run faster on PC + keyboard and mouse are nicer, but PC crashes more in both games, so you may also have to think about that, I've had like 2-3 crashes in both games, and I've been running them for a really long time now.

Just wanted to say something, as now I'm trying to improve my BioShock 1 and 2 times, and as I submitted xbox 360 version (it's because of version differences and because I run with controller) it's going to be really hard to beat those times I have now. I could probably do it but I'll need a lot of time, and I only have weekends to run games so well.

I hope you guys don't think that not being able to improve my times in those games means I'm not capable of doing it, I can, but it's hard. BioShock 1 was improved not long ago so I have little time saves. I could save 1 min in BioShock 2, but my current PB has almost every skip first try and some little mistakes.

I'm going to keep trying, but have in mind that if I don't improve them, at least I'm getting consistent at them.

Okay, so after 6h of grind in which I got 2 PBs: I stopped, went have dinner, started a new stream, start a new run and BAM - this happened. I'm pretty happy I beat the WR, I'll keep doing runs for ESA practice but grinding is over.

Recent InFamous: Festival of Blood PB - 27:13. Run wasn't all that good, didn't get the last damage skip so that killed the sub 27 entirely. Last split was amazing, best segment by 13 secs.

Yeah, Chains of Olympus I'd say it's more interesting and well, it has less chance of crashing aswell.

For BioShock, something I didn't say, Xbox for me it's preference, since I'm used to controller, and well, my PB atm is actually not that long, plus it has a exclusive tricks and well, it normally doesn't crash, there's a rare spot in which it can crash but you can make a quick save during that area and you'll be good. PC can crash no matter how good the PC you're using is (I wouldn't be able to bring my PC there, I'd probably try to bring the 360 and the PS3 but if I know someone that brings them I may leave them here.

Okay, I saw some of my games made it through. About BioShock 1 - I can run PC, I submitted Xbox 360 because it has 1 360 version-only skip that I could show, and because PC was ran last ESA. I could basically run PC and show that trick afterwards, the run would be shorter, because of loading times.

I saw that Ghost of Sparta didn't make it through, I guess too many God of War games, and well, Chains is shorter and I'd say more interesting. I was hoping for Chains of Olympus, BioShock 1 and InFamous: Festival of Blood to get in, to be honest.

I'm right now with even more hope of being able to go btw, there's a small chance I can't make, but I'm not thinking about that.
