Vertigo Speedrun!

Post by LightWolf » Sat Jul 01, 2017 8:35 pm

You're gonna have to take my word for it since I didn't record :P , but I did a full-game speedrun of D2: Vertigo in 38:38!

My rules:
- Trainee (Not to hard, ya know :P )
- No intentional deaths (There was one unintended death on the final boss, however I managed to complete the level - the death was from my shaker that killed it :lol: )
- Any% (Basically beat the game, my strategy only led to one hostage being rescued since it was in the way of a switch)

- The time was based on pausing the game the instant before I exited level 20.

I can think of a couple places for improvement, starting with a lack of basic screw-ups. I could also have adjusted my path a little to grab a fusion, though the one place I would have needed it the Omega kindly was out of the way to begin with :P

What I want to know is... Can you do better? Maybe even on higher difficulties :P ?

As I commented on the chat thing, it would require opening up a new category, but this is the kind of thing that might be worth submitting if you're working on it (http://www.speedrun.com/descent2). Spooty is the moderator there and it looks a little lonely, so... yeah.

You would need to record a video to get your time on the site though, even if a Vertigo category were open. Maybe next time will be even lower :)
