   Hi everyone.  I just started trying to become The Guy a few days ago.  I first heard about this when a friend sent me a link to Cloud's The Guy vids,calling it the "evilest game" in existence.  I watched it and after tears rolled down my face from laughing at the poor guy's misfortune,I decided to try it for myself.  I got the demo,then the full game.  And now understand full well how Cloud felt when he played this. I haven't watched all the vids,just the first few and don't intend to watch anymore until I get the game beaten.

  I'm just past the corridor in the G&G part.   

  Kayin,I don't know how to describe the amount of anger and frustration I've had while playing your game so far.  Difficult doesn't even begin to describe it.  But it's hard in a good way.  Though it kills me to admit it,my deaths have almost all been "fair" as far as the game working as it should. The reason being I have died 2000+ times XD  I'm playing it on hard. 

I love the retro game references you have throughout the game.  I LOL'd IRL when I saw Link and he stabbed me with his sword the first time. Is the falling moon a reference to Majora's Mask? 
And the constant surprising ways to die keep me coming back for more,often with my jaw dropped to the floor. lol
It's the most addicting game I've played in a long time.

Thanks for for an awsome game ;D

While I have only just decided to register an account here, my relationship with IWBTG started over half a year ago.

While browsing the GameSpot Forums, in some thread about difficult games, one person mentioned five words that would forever redefine gaming frustration for me.

You know those words already.

After a bit of lurking around the forums, I found some YouTube playthroughs. Next thing I knew, I was hopelessly addicted to the likes of Cloud8745 and UltraJMan (before he started with all that Schildkrote drama), as well as other YouTubers I discovered because of them.

Of course, I eventually had to play the game myself, though I inevitably had many swearing fits and the general feeling that I was about to have a heart attack and die because of this game. I had to stop for long periods of time to make sure that didn't happen.

Fast forward to the present, and I've started ustreaming after several other YouTubers I've been watching did their own shows. As of my last two streaming sessions, I started playing again, my progress being in the Ghosts 'n Goblins/Ghouls 'n Ghosts area just after what I call the corridor of moving spike sodomy, the falling tombstones, and the three birds. This is the third screen of the area, where you have to ride a platform across another spike corridor, dodging spikes and apples-actually, they're more like giant cherries-oh, fuck it, let's just call them delicious fruit. I can get past that screen on occasion, but it was the screen just after that which made my life hell.

Oh, and to increase the fun factor for my viewers, I started playing songs in the background, notably Thriller and What Is Love. Maybe I should have the latter looping constantly as I try to beat this game as a sort of Haddaway Challenge designed to strip every last bit of sanity I have left.

Luckily, I made it to Mecha-Birdo today. Unfortunately, his/her/its second form is a total bitch to deal with because of the fact that the eggs suddenly jolt to ludicrous speed, as well as their being spaced well apart...and the freaking LASERS! Many times, I've tried to jump over them, but get caught by the very trails of those damn things. The worst part of all is that there's a THIRD form, which spits eggs with glowing red tips-touch the glowy red, and EXPLODE! Or maybe the worst part is that after I somehow manage to beat Mecha-Birdo, I have to get to a save point on the other side of this room with an egg that has a glowy death tip in my way. Touch said glowy death tip or fall down trying to dodge it, and I'll have to do it ALL OVER AGAIN!

Anyway, it's about time I try to get nice and cozy here, meeting everyone who dwells in these forums...at least when I'm not having :spikes:s and :fruit:s thrown at me.

Hey NamelessFragger. Enjoy your stay, and don't give up on IWBTG. Getting past the spike corridor is probably the most frustrating part in the whole game. >_>

Thanks for the welcome, both of you.

Also, Mecha-Birdo is now a thing of the past as of tonight-those who watched my ustream can vouch for me here. However, three screens after that, the second screen with Bionic Commando music and the first with the flying turrets, I start having trouble because of that damn spike that flies out to smack you after that drop. I still have to refine my timing.

Oh, and even though I may go on hiatus from time to time, I WILL become The Guy, at least on Hard difficulty. Several others have done it with enough persistence-why can't I?

Good job getting past Mecha-Birdo. Dracula is hard because of his random attack patterns, though he gets more fun if you know what to expect.

Hi guys.
I'm not new.  Does that take away my right to say hello?

Hi everyone, I just became The Guy, and I thought I'd join this forum of yours. So far, it seems to be quite... eccentric.

Note that the reason I won't say anything  like "Fuck yeah" on becoming The Guy, is because I'll save that for that other topic.
