Ghegs & 2:51.13 & FD3S & AT

This was a wild day. After barely 10 minutes of my daily Akina runs, I got 2:51.36 and felt that that was it, that was the run I had been chasing after. But since it was so early, I decided to keep playing and half an hour later I got this.

And while I was encoding the video, I noticed that my first checkpoint time in this run was 0:53.49, about half a second slower than what my very best has been. So a 2:50 time is definitely not an impossible dream to achieve.

Still, I'm quite happy with this. Luckily I just started a week-long holiday so I'll have plenty of time to keep running down Akina. But I feel I'm going to be a bit more relaxed about it now. If I can't hit that 2:50, I'll put up this run's video when the holiday is over.

Thought I'd take a brake from the game, but came back to it earlier than expected.

The siren song of Akina is tough to resist.

I wasn't quite able to break the 2:50 barrier, but it's so, so close...

Sorry for making you update the table constantly, Ghegs. :)
That was totally unexpected. Guess I'm finally getting used to it.

No worries! I'll update the table every hour if I have to. You just keep running down Akina until you take my 3:02 down a notch!

The game doesn't get faster, you do!

As do I, finally:

Ghegs & 2:50.89 & FD3S & AT

This is the result of playing the game 1-2 hours almost every day for a month. From my then-best time of 2:57.43 I have managed to shave off almost seven seconds. Feels crazy now that I think about it. I really owe to it clp and amber for bringing me back into the game.

As the 2:48.86 video available on Youtube is apparently a TAS, I'm going to say this is the World Record. If anybody knows of any better, do let me know! Share this video, maybe some Japanese player will see it and we'll learn of even greater times.
