Shadow of the Beast II in 10:41.97 – A New Ridiculous World Record

I’ve just completed my first stream of Shadow of the Beast II in the Any% Genesis Ridiculous Difficulty category and broke the world record of 15:28.00 with a 10:41.97. The change of pace between normal and ridiculous is, well, ridiculous – damage from enemies seems to be doubled.

This was the first time I’ve actually finished ridiculous but felt a lot sloppier than my normal difficulty runs, I’ll continue to run ridiculous and try and optimise. It’s 2:15 slower than my normal PB and I dropped time picking up the health potion in Ishran’s guardhouse, both potions in Zelek’s castle, and arguing with the snail who said I didn’t have enough money to travel to Karamoon, when I did.
