    New video is up. I apologize in advance for the break in continuity, as well as my sedated manner towards the end (I'm on Benadryl). No boss tonight, I'll upload that part soon. I actually encountered a major glitch at that point, which is unfortunate for people who want to see all of what Kraidgief has to offer. Fortunately for them, however, there are already about a gazillion Let's Play's of IWBTG online and they can check it out there.

    I haven't been watching the LPs simply so I can see everything for myself for the first time. This finally paid off when I got past the spiky hell just past Mecha Birdo. I turn the fan off and go to jump over it when all of a sudden

    I'll get right on that.

    Meanwhile, I'm publishing Part 4B right now. It'll be uploaded to YouTube soon. This particular video contains the single most frustrating death I have experienced in this game... ever. You'll know the one I'm talking about.

    I'd never heard of this game before your thread. Keep up the videos, very entertaining!

    This reminds me of that insanely difficult mario remake where the guy is just swearing every time he dies.

    Now serving Part 4B.

    Editing these videos is the most time-consuming part. There are many deaths/mistakes that you aren't seeing because they just aren't funny or interesting. Then I have to edit out the screams of the innocents that I am murdering during especially frustrating portions.

    Actually, it makes me really happy that you did, especially just after reading this.

    I'd like to remind you that nowhere in this thread does it say "Contact a Moderator for permission to make a Let's Play thread!"

    Do you want to make one? If so, ask yourself, can I make it actually funny? Evidence submitted to this forum strongly suggests that no, you can't.

    But if you want to brave the odds, take the bull by the horns, and drive forward into the garden of madness, be my guest.

    Seriously, I have never laughed this hard at a let's play before. I really have to admire this game, every single detail of it says, "Fuck you." And it does so completely without shame. Its beautiful and terrible at the same time.

    What is the song playing at the end of 4b? I know the one before that is from Kirby.

    EDIT: I just found it, it's from Mega Man 2. I knew I'd heard it before.

    There's quite a few Mega Man 2 references spread liberally throughout this game. I'm about to come up on one pretty shortly -- the crazy insane version of the disappearing/reappearing blocks. Also, the Dragon Devil boss is from Mega Man 2, if I remember correctly.

    This let's play rivals the one Gilder did for the Lost Levels in terms of cringe worthiness. Really good stuff, and funny too. I'm glad I'm not the one playing.

    About the wall-jumping thingies: You don't actually have to press the direction and jump at the same time. It's much easier to just keep the jump button pressed the entire time you're wall-jumping.

    Also, I've gotten to the dragon in my medium playthrough, and I've just beaten Dracula in hard. :)

    In a bout of insanity, I decided to do my first playthrough of this game on hard. After some 500+ recorded deaths (although I'm sure I'd actually be much closer to two thousand if it recorded EVERY death and not just dying between saves), I'm only just at the part right before Dracula.

    Yeah, this game takes the concept of "Nintendo hard", kicks it in the balls, drills out its teeth, and rapes its dog. I was not prepared.

    Despite the difficulty, I think one of the only actual game flaws (besides the crashing) is the start-up time for each boss fight. The Mike Tyson fight takes something like a minute to start and you can't skip straight to the fight. When you die something like 30-40 times figuring out that fight, that means you spend 30-40 minutes just watching the fight intro and that's just a pain.

    joshofalltrades, THANK YOU for this Let's Play. On my own, this game would just be self-inflicted cruelty which would haunt me forever. Watching somebody get repeatedly trashed who's already beaten the game before allows me to get a good laugh at the ultra-hard spots that just pissed me off before. Of course, it also chills my blood to see some of what awaits me.

    I do have a question, though (not just for josh, but for anybody who can answer it). You know that very last part of the
    Ghouls 'n Goblins-esque region where the moon falls and drops you down to Birdo? Well, I've managed to jump past that part (i.e., the moon falls, but I jump quick enough and high enough to get another screen over to the right). The next screen requires some nightmarish jumping, but it looks like if you complete it that you can get to a floating item that looks like (possibly) a different gun. Is it actually a secret weapon or just a cruel, cruel joke that murders you if you touch it?

    It's a secret item thingy. AFAIK, it does nothing. It'll just be sitting on display in the room of divine teleportation, along with any others you find. 6 in total, I've heard, though I've only found 2.

    You can skip the intro's by pressing s, or at least some of them.

    You're quite welcome. I figure comedy is always better when it involves self-inflicted torture, and this game is the most fun torture I know of.

    Also, it has been mentioned previously, but S does skip cutscenes. The Tyson thing frustrated me too until I figured that out. I use Xpadder to map S to my Back button on the 360 controller. Works like a charm.

    I'll give that a shot.

    Congratulations! This game is really hard, even on Medium. Most people don't have the patience past the first few screens.

    I bet if you beat it on the ultimate difficulty then women just rain down on you from the sky.

    See, I told you this would work out. Or maybe I didn't I forget.

    As a sidenote, the glitch in the Kraidgief fight is intentional, it's meant to mimic the same unintentional glitch in the original Super Metroid Kraid fight, where if you damage him enough when he's still in the ground he'll just die and not come out.

    It sounds like you're trying to change sides after the first punch? You don't have to do that.

    This is famous? Honestly it's not that great or particularly funny. Shows off the game pretty well, but the guy recorded post commentary so it doesn't have the frustration to it that others might have and he's really not funny enough to carry it on his own. The guests don't add a whole lot either, but they help.
