New WR

New world record! I managed to beat the game in 52:38!
You can follow me on twitch http://www.twitch.tv/kash_lba
or on discord.
Even if you're not interested in speedrunning, it's always great to see someone play our favorite game and have a nice chat.

Congratulations on the new world record, you definately deserve it!
It's crazy to think that you we're just a random guy on the speedrunning section, giving new tricks and skips for us runners, but now is the new world record holder.
If i remember correctly, you weren't entirely sure if you wanted to run when i first asked you. Well I'm glad you decided to do it in the end.

You should make a highlight of the world record on twitch, and then export it to youtube. I'm sure people would like a link to the vod as well.

Congrats
I'll take a look at the whole when I'll have the time, curious to see what you did differently

Also, not to be nitpicky but... Have you guys set a mandatory language for the speedruns ? I mean, the length of the unskippable dialogues varies from one language to the other, no ?

We don't really have a mandatory language, since it doesnt really change alot, if I remember correctly.

In theory, couldn't one second difference make a world record ?

It could, although it hasn't happened yet. I think the loading times play a bigger part in comparison to language though. Would be nice to test both of these, using the current world record and the former one.

Personally, I believe that speedruns are a huge waste of time - I will never speedrun a game for as long as I live... It isn't worth it! Even if it is a new world record - doesn't matter what game it is. Besides, I have plenty of other important things at the moment.
Although, like you said, it is nice to see others who play the LBA series that aren't members.

Anyways, great job, Kash!

Haha... No, I didn't mean it like that. I know it's impossible to distinguish between sarcasm or not, but I'm not being sarcastic. I personally wouldn't play a game just for speed running. There really are better things one can do with his/her own time. We're all different, so maybe it is important for some people.

Is kind of crazy how much faster the game can be beaten due to certain exploits.
