ah, Ubisoft Credits. Ever since Assassin's Creed (2007) they've been like this.
BOB is an acronym for BOB is Only BOB etc.

At least they made a 2nd veiwing of these credits a bit more entertaining.

Or maybe I'm thinking of Legends

I'm glad you're liking this game, raocow. It brings me fond memories because my wife and I got the platinum trophy on it together on the PS3 back when we first started dating.

I'm surprised he was able to do it without inhaling. The game really expects you to be using that move a lot. Raocow is making things a lot harder on himself by not using it (yes, you do get lums by inhaling bombs).

"Raocow makes things harder on himself" is basically raocow's motto at this point. 90% of the issues he has in a given game are invariably issues he causes himself. Usually while failing to take any advice on how to avoid those issues.

raocow's power is using the bare minimum of in-game tools and overcoming and exceeding on sheer savant-level skills

:slow: is his spirit pokémon

if he ever unlocks his true potential the worlds of esports, the FGC and speedrunners need to all watch out

Screen Scream Zone Act 78

You would've been fine without the medal anyways, is the worst part
The intended method is to keep your wallrun going up the wall on the left by jumping off the right in between the saws. It's not the easiest thing but it's not intended to be like, an absurd puzzle either

Like you've done before, you maintain your wall run when you jump from a wall.
What was the yell at the screen moment is when you approached the door with 349 Lums, and you forgot there is always enemies gaurding the last cage.

Since it looks like you read my spoiler, I'll answer your question. The next level is safe. You might even be able to do the Chest level right after.
But the 1st 'blank' medal is the start of the 3-stage finale.

Not every level. In fact, this very level is an example of one with no enemies guarding the cage (I'm not counting the guys who give you no lums, since you have to kill them via environment. Point is, the cage room isn't worth lums at all). I think raocow was pretty smart to not take that risk, even though it turned out there was a whole other room.

Yeah, the last thing you want on these levels is another 349 situation. That's a bigger oof than what I watched this morning. Ha-ha.

I thought I saw the robots give lums when you first punch them.

To comment on raocow's observation on 'lacl of precision', maybe it because you are always holding the run button?

That blue streak we saw during the time trail was an ascending Electoon. They do that when they fall off into water (or lava). They did this in Rayman 1 as well.

yeah, today's level is without question one of the harder ones in the game
i think rao is having trouble in a combination of going from world 6 difficulty straight to world 10 difficulty, and then switching his character and thus having a different sprite he's not used to

also of note, there are a total of 3 electoons left!

if the treasure level goes well (which, for you, i kind of think it will) i'd recommend doing the whole rest of the endgame sequence right after, though.

Let's be honest. The real reason for the recent struggles here are that he's not playing as Globox, the superior character.

This game seems mostly pretty generous about design decisions, but it can be weirdly punitive about strange things, like not letting you go back through some doors or not respawning that medallion raocow didn't collect before entering the electoon room on his first run last night.

Restarting the level from the final room when you have to replay for lums might save some time versus reentering from the map, but it looks like it also costs you your heart if you have one, which potentially means 5 free lums. Given that some runs have ended less than 5 lums short, that might be worth considering.

Ah, good, they name dropped it now. That means I can talk about it now, instead of when the LP is over.

Land of the Livid Dead: Origins' only reference to Rayman 3, as there was an area in that game with the same name. However, I heard the only thing they have in common is the name.
__________________________________________________________________________________________
People expected you to be able to finish the main game today? That was unrealistic.

As for the parts you were having trouble (the wallrun jumps), I think you were just jumping late, and not quick enough. It's been a while, but I think you were supposed to rapid fire the jump button, as soon as Rayman touches the wall.

I really recommend saving this for last, btw. It's postgame-level difficulty, to put it bluntly

Also, if you played it now you would never have a chance to play as Cyber Death Globox.
ImageWell it is a decent hack but sometime its just too repetitif there no level that actually pop in your face and your like oh yeah that level they all ressemble themselves and just monster along the way.

also yeah i expected this to go a bit better because it's pretty much just pure platforming no ice or wind or swimming
and it's short too soooo

but yeah you can jump when wall-running basically the instant you touch the wall and that's basically what you did on the winning run there
