You don't have to throw your bat. Literally just hold space and forward (W) as the map is (re)starting. You'll be super slow mo and have lots of air control. From there, you'll land on the roof

Given what they posted, I'm pretty sure they were talking about the jump you have to make after that.

Ooh, whoops. I misread that as having to throw the bat before you can even reach the roof to begin with. But that goes with out saying, you need both (??) hands to access the terminal

True, I just meant that if you forget to throw the bat away and try to do it while you're trying to get the terminal, time will resume and you'll go splat.

What is the last challenge? I don't think I have the patience for Speedrun RT or NoRestart. I have 100% in all the other challenges. Impossible mode and Fists Only are HARD.

I think it's called FUNFUNFUN mode but I might be wrong.

The last challenge is just for fun. It's much easier than normal gameplay and significantly sillier. I recommend you play the Thomas The Tank Engine themesong on repeat when you play it. Very relaxing after the tension of NORESTART.

Did... you kill that one guy by throwing a gun at him, or?

In case anyone does not know this, though, it is worth pointing out that you absolutely can kill a guy by throwing a gun at him - thrown objects seem to obey most of the same rules as punching, so if you hit someone with enough of them fast enough or at just the right moment he's toast. I fell in love with the bar levels all over again after I figured this out.

It seems to be between 4 and 6 throws to kill usually

Three if you're fast enough :byob1:

Also yeah, 'health' seems to be tied to a quickly recovering stamina bar. The longer you take to beat someone up with non-lethal attacks, the more it takes to take them out. Three punches are normally rapid enough, but it's harder to find and throw 3 things fast enough to kill someone.

The ninja stars on I think the Warehouse level kill the red guys if you nail them in the head.

Unrelated note, but even first-person platforming works well in this game somehow. I hope wallrunning finds its way in at some point because diving around the more spacious levels is already lot of fun but there's potential for so much more..

This games runs great on my computer. It should, the computer has a Skylake i5, 16GB DDR4, and a GTX 960. I played it on another PC of mine (Core 2 Duo E7500, 8GB DDR3, GTX 460 768MB), and it seemed to be pretty smooth. The CPU and the GPU are both below the requirements listed on Steam, but the game was completely playable. Both of these machines run Windows 10.

I convinced my friend to buy it, and it runs like hot buttered rear end on Core 2 Quad Q6600, Radeon HD 6870, and 4GB DDR2, Windows 7. The game was an unplayable slideshow. I know the Windows install on that computer is pretty fresh; it was just done around Christmas to install a new SSD. We installed the latest AMD driver to try to fix the problem, to no avail. We already tried turning all options (except resolution) down to minimum.

Any experiences here? Could the problem be the DDR2 memory? The 4GB vs 8GB on the other machines? Windows 7 vs. Windows 10? Poor performance on AMD graphics chips? My friend isn't too concerned since he is upgrading soon Warhammer 40K Eternal Crusade.

It's not the memory, I'm still at 4GB RAM and the only thing I can't run is The Division. My guess is that he's somehow using an integrated graphics card instead of his actual card.

I've heard stories of people forgetting which video output to use and hooking up the DVI cable to the motherboard, making the GPU a useless block of semiconductor.

Holy poo poo I love this replay so much

The replay itself is poor but what happened in it is beautiful. Let me try to explain what happened:

So in the elevator, there's three baddies. I swivel around and punch the baddy on the left, just as the guy on the right shoots (and misses). The one in the middle shoots their gun and kills Lefty. As I punch the middle dude, Righty shoots his gun again, into the gun that Middly dropped, from my punching them, and that makes Righty flinch and drop THEIR gun. I take it and shoot Middly, and then toss it to LeftShotty, outside of the elevator. Just as I pick up Lefty's pistol, RightShotty shoots at me, which I spin to dodge (while shooting them), and see it killing Righty, just to toss THAT pistol to LeftShotty, pick up that shotty they dropped earlier, and blast them.

*Italian Chef Finger Kiss* MWAH! Beautiful!

My NoRestart story: First attempt after unlocking it, I get to the final level. About halfway through I try to pick up a painting at the same instant it is destroyed by a stray bullet, and I am stuck holding a painting fragment I can't discard, can't swing, and can't replace. When I try to kill a man by jumping on him, I become trapped in a black screen until I give up and kill the program.

I have not made it past the office since.

I'm pretty sure it's actually the default "IBM VGA8" font that has been in the BIOS of pretty much every PC since VGA became a thing. You can find recreations of it, and a bunch of other oldschool BIOS fonts, here.

Yeah, jumping is fun as hell in this game. You can also jump on people, Mario-style. It doesn't show up well in replays, but it's substantially faster than punching someone to death, all but necessary for fists-only challenge, and I swear to God sometimes, if I'm able to time my jump right, I'm able to leap off of them literal Mario-style, instead of just falling to the ground, but that might just be my perception.

195 kills is my current record on Endless mode. 5:1 time compression seems to be what I average out at. There's a replay on Killstagram where the time compression is 45.69s | 1,877.10s. I don't know how the gently caress he managed that.
