  • Very impressive. Tool-assisted speedruns are pretty wild. If I recall correctly, the non-assisted speed (assuming the world record for time matched in every level) is somewhere around 45 minutes or so? So what’s more impressive is that NOT being a cyborg-brain is only a few minutes behind this. I think those times are calculated minus cutscenes, however.
