Calling Shenanigans on the 12 hour finish people

Post by urughak » Wed Apr 18, 2012 12:52 am

Seriously- I think the kiddos claiming to have done speedruns through this game in 12 hours out of the gate after release are full of shit. Number one, why would you? I mean i understand theres weirdos who think that this is somehow cool, but really? Two- no...huh uh....not all the figuring character skills, restarts, banging into the puzzles, and combat. Sorry no. Sure, I've been taking it easy and enjoying and restarted a few times from figuring out character/class stuff, but im 30ish hours in and on level 4 and 5. :lol:

People play how they want. Some people want to rush, some like taking their time. As long as you're having fun, who cares?

at 13 and a half hours total play time on my 1st play through I do not see it as far fetched people are already doing 3rd and 4th play through speed runs and the such.

I don't feel like a rushed at all I found most of the secrets and the such even spent a small amount of time grinding to top off food and get one of my guys to level that was close on level 9.

Not saying your 30 hours play time is bad or anything but I don't see 12 hours as being any sort of speed run.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
My end game stats LoG 1st play through

I'm at 13.5 hours on level 12. And I went for quite a few secrets. 12 hours to finish if you didn't care about secrets sounds very viable.

All up to the person as to how they wanna play.

I did it in eleven hours, but the game doesn't count reloads and stuff like that, so I probably spent 20 or more hours playing.

ha! seeing this thread- viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1028

please dont think im ridiculing. i dont mean it that way. if you guys can actually do this, ok... guess im sorta impressed. i still dont get it, why youd want to shrivel the awesomeness down to such a slight number (for some kindof interwebz fame?). but good for you. Still have a hard time believing it but I saw the numbers, and im guessing its probably a bit easy to call some phony's bluff of these things. guess your minds grind alot faster drinking all that redbull and all... ;)

***EDIT***

did you guys use walkthroughs and such or actually figure it all out on your own?

It's because there's an achievement for quickly doing the first level.
