Half Life 2: Episode Two - Done Quick
« on: May 5, 2015, 09:21:59 »
Its been a long wait, 5 years to be precise, but its finally here;

Presenting Half Life 2: Episode Two Done Quick in 30:36.705

Development of the run started immediately after SourceRuns released Episode One speedrun back in 2010, a small group of runners started routing Episode Twos maps and eventually doing segments. The run has been in progress for a very long time, lots of game-breaking tricks were discovered that forced the run to be restarted 3 times until being finally finished, saving more than 6 minutes from previous time estimates.

Completed on the initial Orange Box release, Engine 14; Protocol 4104 of EP2 in 441 segments (out of which 194 are save/load segments) by:
Jukspa, Matmo, Elgu, S., BitRain, Blizik, Valvinraim and Eidgod

Timesheet: https://goo.gl/wbh8wJ
Thorough explanation of the run: http://bit.ly/ep2dqwrittenexplanation

Any ETA on the downloads, like will it be available later today ?
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear's path, and only I will remain.

Great stuff, best HL2 run I've seen yet.

Dog race had me laughing hard, but the strider fight had to be my favourite part.

Just watched the run. It was one of the best speed runs I watched in quite a while. One of my favorite parts was when they went from the very beginning all the way to Pointiflex in about a minute and a half.
I'm a guy.

This was the most stupidly incredible thing I've ever seen. Every second of it except the one big unskippable cutscene was absolutely insane. I'm downloading the high quality commentary version right now. And I agree, the ending was brilliant, especially since I'm pretty sure Jukspa or someone else said before that it wouldn't be possible to fit it in.

I actually feel like I can't watch any video ever again because it wouldn't compete with this in terms of entertainment. :D
