You are not going to believe this.
I have just played Shadow’s first action stage, Radical Highway, on mission 4. Get to the goal within 3 minutes. That is very tough, but it is doable if you’re good enough.
Several things went wrong in the run, I messed up one trick, forcing me to take the long way, and then as I was jumping for a shortcut (grinding down the suspension bridge which leads to a 1000 point bonus) the collision detection fucked up, sending me THROUGH the rail. So I had to take ANOTHER long way.
Near the end, I said to myself: "No, I’m not gonna make it, I’ve still got these two corkscrews to go…" and after I’d cleared them and seen the Goal Ring, I had about three seconds left. I did a spin dash, and an enemy dropped from the sky, and interruped it. It blew him up, though, and then I just quickly started it again, with about a second left on the clock. As I was a few metres away from the goal ring, I said, "Shiiit, it’s gonna run out…!" But I hit the ring, and the screen went white! As Shadow span around and said "HERE WE GO!" as his victory speech thing, I looked at the timer.
And it said… "2:59:99"!!!
ZOMG!! A HUNDREDTH OF A SECOND!! I wish I had a video to show you, but the camera wasn’t running, cuz I was swearing a lot cuz of the crap luck I was having sometimes. But I DO have a picture of the stage best time, just to prove it!
No, I have NOT Photoshopped that time in, that is genuinely what I got! As you can see, the red box is highlighting the 4th mission, which is the time limit mission on every stage! And if you have the game, and have got to that mission, load it up, and it WILL say something along the lines of "Get to the goal within 3 minutes 0 seconds!"
I was laughing my ass off, nearly LITERALLY! That’s the most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me on SA2B. Open-mouthed
Right, I’ll be off to bed now. See ya later. Open-mouthed
PS: Welcome to the… um… club, stargirl-93! Have no idea who you are, but what the hey. Open-mouthed

  1. Hey how are you?
    WOW you really couldn’t be any closer could you? Lol! 2:59:99! WOW! That’s AWESOME because I think that only YOU could do that because only YOU have that much luck to be able to do something with only 100th of a second spare! Lol that’s great! I LOVE IT!! THat is seriously so COOL!
    OK I have to go, but I’m gonna check on Dragon Tail, see if there’s anything else I can edit! I think you said a couple of days ago you were gonna put chapter 2 up there, so I’ll go have a look at that! See ya soon 🙂
    Love Em xxx -hugs-

  2. Speck!
    I genuinely thought I was never gonna make it when I saw the Goal Ring, and when I hit that enemy. But I DID IT! 😀 I’m not going to retry that level for an A until I have the other 179 emblems. 😀
    I should submit that to the Guinness World Records as the "World’s most awesome moment in GameCube gaming". 😀

  3. Hey that’s actually an AWESOME idea, and I think it has a good chance of getting into the GWR book because it’s unique and slightly unusual and they love that kind of thing! 😀
    OK, back to homework! 😦 See ya soon! 😀
