To be up with the best PC runners is truly a huge accomplishment for me! The only mistake of this run was near the end of TBT but I saved it from killing my run! For me this is the God run because I did not have any splits that lost time to PB! HAPPY would be an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! LETS GOOO!!!

Now I wonder how this compares to not having to fight Skops.

For sure, it certainly explains why PC runs are a good three minutes longer than the PlayStation ones.

At first I wondered why there's no beat Mr Skops category for the PC version, but then I realized if you've played this far you might as well finish the game. 😂

With only 11 runs, you're probably right, but it's seen an increase in submissions in the last few months for reasons unknown.
