Hey, the new name I go by is freak4games but MrFreak4games makes me feel pretty official I guess :)

First off I'd like to thank the people from my stream chat. Though there may be few for now I want to thank them for hanging out with me during the countless bad runs that I do of this game. They are the reason I still run this.

ZenicReverie for his run on this website. If it wasn't for that 1:40:11 of his I would have never started running this game.

I'd also like to thank PrearDF, BillBraid, Rozerr, NT1_Evolution, and the rest of the Jak and Daxter speedrunning community. Without all of them I wouldn't have learned the strats and knocked down my time as much as I have over the last few months.

It's been a rollercoaster of emotion getting my time to this, so it's good to see such a fast time.

Before I even start a run I save time by making sure I turn off game hints. Now we get to sit through this cutscene. 6 minutes to do what you want. Whether it be a bathroom break, smoke break, food, whatever. I think I played bass guitar for the duration of this one.

Ignore the random pauses throughout the gameplay I don't know why my game does that. The pause during the death at zepplin's was me debating for half a second about resetting but being as far ahead of my pb in the first place I kept going.

Overall for me there is about a minute of easy time saving due to mistakes but I'm thinking of moving to 100% now that I subbed 1:24.

Thank you all for watching and if you would like to get ahold of me you can message me at or stop by my stream at
