    just saw 6A.

    I'm a little concerned! Didn't you just have a kid? Need more stress?

    Heh, normally I'd be really stressed out, but the wife had the baby in Dallas, which is about 3 hours from here, for reasons I shan't go into here. She can't come back until she's fully recovered. Meanwhile, I've got school, so I have to be here, but I finished all my homework for the weekend yesterday. Yay responsibility.

    EDIT: As far as total deaths, right now it says 344, but it's notoriously wonky about recording them. I'm doing much better than my first time through, though. Recorded deaths are 1344 on my first game. I'm getting close to beating the game, and I'm precisely 1000 deaths short. Odd how that came to such an even number.

    EDIT 2: Also, I dunno if anyone noticed, but I actually did say brother fucker this time.

    You're most gracious. Be certain to wait to use twatberry until speaking to somebody who tends to get mental images; you want to achieve maximum flavor potential.

    One thing I'm attempting -- and I really hope this is coming through -- is that I'm not content to rest on my laurels here. I am trying to make every video better than the previous one. I have literally zero experience with making videos, but I don't do things half-assed. At least I hope it doesn't seem that way.

    Maybe you can make sequences out of edits, for example: When you were fighting the Clown Copter Triumvirate, instead of just always skipping to Wiley, why not show the moment of defeat of the first two phases followed by Wiley entering?

    I did notice that you seemed to have tried coming up with new, more florid curses for video 6. That's really going the extra mile.

    Obviously, gratuitous use of bad language is expected in this game (if you don't cuss from playing this, you are a damned robot), but I applaud josh's self-control concerning playing this game and drinking. See, if I had any booze within 50 feet of me playing this game, I'd end up in the hospital after a couple bad rooms.

    My only choice is to not be around booze. Even though YO HO DIDDLY DEE, YOU ARE A PIRATE!

    Fantastic.

    I had actually thought about this, but I had a couple of problems. First of all, the sound was off again, which meant I had to separate the audio and video feed and adjust. Ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem, but for every little bit I cut away I had to readjust the audio, which meant that I tried to make the cuts as large as possible. The second problem was that the video was already something like 50 minutes long when I started and I had to pare it down to two < 10 minute videos.

    Thank you for the suggestion though, and don't hesitate to throw more out there!

    I wouldn't mind this game if the guy actually jumped when I fucking wanted him to, sometimes he's just like ,fuck you, and walks off a platform, sometimes he jumps but doesn't do a double jump for me, if the controls were a little more responsive this game would be amazing.

    I fought Tyson and am going through the graveyard part and fuck you I like my bow OK!

    I will play on a harder difficulty unless I have an aneurysm first

    Seriously though, the tagline for the game should read Aneurysm inducing fun for all ages! A great game, but Christ I've gone through many bottles of vodka (Vladdy bleh) trying to beat this thing. I forsee one of two endings: 1 - I'll get to the end and actually beat this damn thing ... in 10 years ... or 2) My grey matter will splatter all over my monitor.

    It happens constantly to the point of wanting to throw the controller/smash the keyboard.. The problem is with jumping just after falling from the platform edge, and not before it. --you'll hear the click you normally make when jumping -but you wont jump- and when you jump again you get the double jump click and fall to your death. -more often than not, you'll just hear the double jump click-

    however if you completely leave the platform and fall then jump, you can still do your second jump.

    The answer to that problem is simply to jump a little earlier. Despite what it may seem, there's no jump in the game that requires you to jump from the very edge of the platform.

    Rather, you should focus on getting the most out of your jumps by being sure to hold the jump button long enough before you release and press it again for the double jump. I've watched a number of people's videos on youtube and this is by far the most common problem they have; they aren't getting enough distance out of their jumps, thus making certain jumps much harder than they need to be.

    hmm, this is the problem then, after years of playing platformers I always wait till the last minute to jump and in this game you can't think a lot of the time you just have to react. When I react I jump at the edge without thinking.

    I will keep those tips in mind for the next time I play, though there are so many more fun things I could be doing like cutting my spleen out with a blunt razor while using a hedgehog in the ass as a painkilling suppository.

    AHHAHAHAHAH!! I BEAT YOU, YOU ASS-SUCKING WHORE-BITCH!!! FINALLY!!

    My final death count was in the 1440's, but that is a complete lie. I had to have died at least 150 times on the last boss alone. Combined with the other deaths that occurred without saving, I had to have broken two thousand. BUT I WON!

    To be fair, 90% of the frustration in this game was my own fault. If I'd had any sense, I would never have started on Hard. I am also 5000% surprised at the end credits not trying to kill you, thus forcing you to refight the final boss and go through all the credits all over again.

    I can now rest easy knowing that I am The Guy.

    Well, they do try to kill you. It's just that, in a rare moment of mercy, 1) it's easy to avoid if you're paying attention and 2) even if you don't avoid it it still gives you credit for winning.

    Definitely get the slomo, it's what I use and it hardly ever crashed when in Win 98 Compatibility Mode.

    This might be the only game I've ever played that I actually enjoy being frustrated while playing. It's like a zen thing -- eye of the storm. The pure rage that forms is therapeutic.

    I'd almost recommend using this game as anger management because it has the tendency to make other enraging issues small and forgettable by comparison. IWBTG is your only target -- hate it, and love it.

    Actually, I was wondering about that. All I saw was
    a single apple/cherry falling down very slowly at the end of the credits (once you get back HOME). Was that the thing that tries to kill you? My guy just kinda walked outta the way. I might've been trying to move him out of the way and not paying attention to what I was doing, but it seemed automatic to me. Or do you just stand there and get crushed if you're not pressing anything?

    I'm not positive, but I think you just have to hit the key and it auto-walks you to the right place. And yeah, that's what I was referring to.
