ewwww....that's like dressing your brother up like a girl because you can't find a date to the prom....

anyway - i really shouldn't be telling you this because it's really embarassing, but the controller put ME down - that's right last night i fell asleep in the middle of a speedrun - i wound the tape back - sure enough 5 minutes of the same ghost blasting me and running over my sleeping corpse on the Metro bridge

I've fallen asleep on the phone before, and I've fallen asleep talking to people online, but I don't think I've ever fallen asleep with a game running and the controller still in my hand.

I have, however, paused a game and clunked over into ZZzz's.

This is like my fav topic to go to and I can't let it go down!
This is called a Bump.
Bumping is illegal.
DO NOT BUMP!

Now this post has a point and it is therefore not a bump!
See? It all works out.

I put down the controller after trying for an hour to beat the first room on Gravemind. It was terrible.

good time for the first room is ~5 minutes. I think. With luck it can go lower.

Here's some mistakes I did while speedrunning Halo and 343GS on Legendary difficulty:

Halo:
- When running up the hill towards the covies, the banshee came and ran me over. Luckily you can skip the banshees and the covenant at the beginning. Woohoo for grenade jump.
- I stuck an elite from a far, and he ran into a grenade pile some grunts left and blew me sky high.
- I dropped my pistol by accident while running away from covies, and one threw a plasma grenade. I never saw my pistol again.....
- I tried to drop down then jump the gap in the structure area. But when I fell out, the warthog crushed me.
- I squished myself again the wall with the warthog when trying to jump up to the switch.
- While sniping marines, one picked me off from a far.

343 Guilty Spark:
- I must have missed my new grenade hop atleast 16 times.
- I fired off a shot in the beginning area, and all the covenant stopped, then shot me to death.
- When I blunt striked the jackal, he got wedged in the door way, and I died horribly.
- That same thing happened on the next door.
- Threw a grenade to kill the jackals on the platform above me so I could safely make it to the door, but the grenade hit me instead.
- Threw a grenade near the door, and it bounced off a grunt's head and hit me.
- Once again, the jackal blocked the door way and I got raped.
- Kept missing my second new grenade hop. Gah, luckily I've learned how to jump since then.
Flood room
- Tried to bump myself out of the room from the door, but fell into an endless abyss of death.
- Threw a plasma grenade towards the flood at the last door, but it landed on a popcorn flood instead. One that had to explode right next to me.
- Threw a frag in there. Bounced off a popcorn flood and killed me instead.
- This time a grunt blocked the door way a few areas later.
- I missed my third new grenade jump countless times, and had bad checkpoints too.
- Finally landed my grenade hop, but when I landed it, some flood came out and shot me in the head with the shotgun.
- Did the jump again, all went well, but the flood stood in the door doing nothing, and ultimately blocking my way.
- Fell through the light bridge instead of jumping it like I had intended.
- Threw a frag into the ending elevator area, but it bounced off the wall and killed me.
- I won't even go into description about the horrors of the ending areas.


That's my vast amount of funny bloopers.

I have a really recent screw up, one that's just.... horrid. Behold everyone, this is story of the perfect speedrun ruined, T&R style.


I was doing my T&R easy run on single player, and everything was going fantastic. Sniping was fabulous in the first area, my rock jump worked out perfectly, I owned all the covenant on and around the grav lift perfectly, it was speedrunning heaven.

Then I got into the ship and my luck increased further. I was sticking elites from great distances with plasmas (no idea how, but I was). Sticking grunts so they would run back and kill all of the covenant. Then when I got the cloaking device, I sniped the jackals perfectly and ran on to the next area. When I got to that area, as soon as I activated the switch to let the marines into that weird room with the wraith, a door opened right up, and I ran right through it towards the space port.

Here I was a little nervous, because my new grenade hop is kinda hard to pull off. So I said screw it, and threw my plasma grenades at the pillar while I was running towards it. The grenades all worked perfectly somehow, so I picked up the overshield quickly and bam, up to the second level. Then I grenaded myself on to the dropship, then grenaded myself to the tallest level. This was just perfect, especially since I was getting all of this on tape.

I had perfect fights all the way until the prison room. I fired off a shot so the golden elite would run towards me, then I shot him in the head and threw a plasma grenade at the ground. The grenades exploded, all of the covenant died. Once again perfect fights when I got out of that room too.

I was nearing the area with the two cloaked elites with energy swords, I killed them off, heard Cortana say, "we made it!" Then all of a sudden, the screen glitched back.... Captain Keyes died. I don't know how or why, but he died. He didn't fall to the ground either, he was stuck in mid-air with this look of complete abstract terror stricken across his face, and almost looked like he just jumped out of a plane.

I would have beaten the co-op time by so much, enough to achieve sub 11 minutes if he didn't die....

Why oh why?! Crying or Very sad

I think I may have the tape somewhere, but I might have taped over it. Besides, I don't have a capture card or anything, so it wouldn't serve much purpose.

As soon as Captain Keyes died, I just went back to my checkpoint (which was a ways back). I just stopped the recording because I was in absolute shock. It was really funny to me later though. Leave it to the captain to be the only marine to die in the weirdest way possible.

Of course I will Wink

I'm making a big tape of all my runs, then I'll send them to Cody. Here's what all I'm doing (yes, I'm only going off topic once):

The Library on Easy - 13:XX give or take
Truth and Reconciliation on Easy - 10:5X (hopefully, but doubtful)
Halo on Legendary - 14:XX (I might do this, might not)
Guilty Spark on Easy - 5:5X (maybe)
Guilty Spark on Normal - 6:00?
Guilty Spark on Heroic - 6:2X
Guilty Spark on Legendary - 6:5X (hopefully...)
Pillar of Autumn on Legendary (I dunno, sub what's up there now hopefully @_@)

ROFL, owned. I have a good story to tell about my Library runs!

I was running through The Library on Normal, and just got out another door. Behind the corner is a guy with a rocket launcher. So as soon as I entered the room, I threw a plasma at the roof. I figured it'd land and kill him before I turned the corner, so it was all good. I turned the corner, killed him with my shotgun, and the grenade landed on me.

lollllllllllllll

2:22am, that's some seriously funny stuff. I'm fairly anti throwing grenades in my runs unless it's to do jumps (even then, I'm iffy about them when they don't save much time). More often then not whatever I stuck just walks up to me to explode. :P

earlier I accidentaly overwrote a nice save. No clue how it happened, but I had to reload my bruteshot, a brute was berzerk near me, and I had no shields. I ran around to the other side of a crate on it's side, and he tried to charge through it, and died. It was so odd, because I know nothing hit him, but that crate must have been his kryptonite.

that's an instant classic - it would have been even funnier if the elite had locked on and followed you to the other side

i always thought you were either invisible (to the AI) or invulnerable while in swordflight because i've never died or even heard of anyone dying while flying

EDIT: i might as well put the Best Death Ever in here too since the topic is back at the top

Whenever I try to do a run of SC, 50% of the time while driving into the locked door room, I get stuck by a grunt right as I run him over. Its quite maddening sometimes. :\

Not so much a screw up, but it did make me screw up afterwards because I was like OMG. I nearly stick myself going down to the jail, and got a real lucky bounce off of the carbine.

Haha, that was awesome. I'm guessing it disappeared during the loadzone right before the prison?


And I have WAY too many mess-ups of me falling off the rafters on Keyes.When you're trying to rush on them, not taking your time because it's a speed run, I can sometimes fall through the one hole on the rafters or off the side of them like I did in my previous 3:55 Legendary run. :(

The worst is getting killed by the grunt with the FRG right at the end of the level on a difficulty on like easy or normal (I don't drop down like I do in my Heroic and Legendary runs.. I go the easier way). Not him actually shooting me, just after you kill him getting killed by the FRG when it discharges or whatever.

I just ran AotCR 5 times, and everytime a hunter managed to screw up my run @_@;

I'm speaking of Regular runs of course, as I can't do that damn fall off the bridge...... But yeah, hunters owning the crap out of me every single run. I didn't find it very humorous the fifth time. In fact, I said many bad words and came here to post about it Razz. Although, me screwing up the very beginning was a highlight. I threw a grenade at the wall and it hit me ._.;

I'm getting by the hunters a little better. Now the biggest, funniest run ruiner happens right at the end of the level. I grab a banshee on the bridge, and when I go to activate the switches to get to the control room, the second banshee pilot runs the banshee into me as soon as I get out @_@;

This has happened 3 times in a row. I am becoming frustrated Razz.

I had something akin to the Maw/Library disintegrating Chiefs happen to me. During the ramp ['there's a gap ahead Chief'] on the final Maw Run, for some reason my Warthog flipped forward [I have no idea why] and landed top down... crushing Chief and killing him instantly. His body disappeared and the camera stayed focused on where the impact had occured. I wish I'd gotten it on film... I was only practicing the Maw Run though, but that was shaping up to be my best run of the night. Talk about a downer...
