If you've been watching my current playthrough of Breath Of Fire, over at Dtoid.TV, then you may have noticed there has been quite a lot of talk about speedrunning games. Now, while I'm normally not the biggest fan of rushing through games as fast as I can, last night I remembered a game that I actually did have a blast gunning through after completing it so many times, that game being Lollipop Chainsaw. So, I figured, why not give it a try?
Tune in to Mash Tactics tonight, as I try to get myself back on the leaderboards, and practice for what may eventually become my one and only speedrun ever. I have to get familiar with the game again as it's been awhile since I've even played, but, I think with some practice, I could find myself doing quite well. If not, hell, at least I get to revisit one of my favorite games from last year. It's a classic win-win scenario!
