New speedrun bests Tony Hawk 3 in under four minutes

I thought I was a Tony Hawk pro after beating every game in the series last year, but I got nothin' on this guy, who beats Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 in three minutes and 55 seconds! The way he does it is by completing multipl...

Kid Link don't wanna grow up in this glitchy OoT speedrun

There is an upside and a downside to the patching functionality found in modern console games. On the one hand, being able to close up nasty holes that would otherwise dampen the experience is quite the welcome feature. On t...

Bit Brigade's Mega Man 2 concert / speedrun is my JAM

MAGFest is the gift that keeps on giving, apparently. Why wasn't I there? Because reasons. So there's this band, Bit Brigade, whose members I will now consider my close, personal friends for life despite never having met the...

Super Meat Boy speed run puts us all to shame

People are talking about Dark Souls, saying that it's all hard and stuff. While I don't disagree with that claim, the kind of difficulty that Dark Souls offers isn't the kind I can easily appreciate. Though I'm far from an e...

Watch someone run through Dark Souls in under 90 minutes

It didn't take long at all for a post-worthy run of Dark Souls to make the rounds. Yeah, you might just want to save this for later (perhaps much later) if you aren't very far into the game yourself. At least for me, the sen...

Watch this guy beat Portal in under ten minutes

After nearly two years of working at his speedrun, a guy by the name of DemonStrate has completed Portal with a time of -- by his count -- 9:25.567. Impressive, especially if you aren't aware of some of the glitches that exi...

TheSpeedGamers to capture all 493 Pokemon for charity

Remember when Pokémon games were limited to just 151 little critters to collect? God, those were the days. I can't comprehend trying to acquire every Pokémon they've come up with since that time. The gang a...

Final Fantasy marathon helps ACT Today

Despite Germany's perception of gamers we do indeed like to help people. Why just yesterday, after I was done being violent because I play videogames, I helped get a kitten down from a tree. I figure it balanced out. I wasn&r...

This is how you beat Final Fantasy Legend in two minutes

I like to think that I'm a fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, but I must admit that I'd never heard of Final Fantasy Legend until today, much less played it. It was kind of a big deal, apparently: it was the first RPG on the...

8:35 is all it takes to beat SMB: The Lost Levels

Are speed runs still cool or are people, like, so not impressed with that stuff anymore? I still think anyone that can pull off a feat like beating a game in some sort of super speed is pretty impressive, but I suppose with c...

Speedrun: Oblivion beaten in 11 minutes

How in the ... oh, right. I knew The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was a glitchy game, but hot damn, this is insane. Almost every speedrun out there involves some sort of exploit in order to shave off precious seconds of game ...

Video: Portal beaten in under 20 minutes

A man by the name of "Groobotube" is about to simultaneously blow your mind, give you a migraine, and impregnate you with his unbelievable speedrun of Portal. He ends up finishing the game in an unparalleled 18:05, ...

Zelda: Twilight Princess Wii speed run: Done in 44.5 hours faster than you

While some many complain that new games are too long and involved, a small elite group of gamers are burning hundreds of hours ... to ironically figure out how to beat them in one sitting. The majority of speed runners we'...

Wasted away again in fillerville; this is what I do on slow days ...

Today is intensely slow news-wise. Instead of actually going outside and bettering your chances of procreation, I bring you the above speedrun of one of my all-time favorite, ultra-action-packed, 2D psuedo-shmups, Gunstar He...

Castlevania is all about speed ... hot, nasty, bad-ass speed

 With the release of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night this week on XBLA, gamers new and old to the series have had a chance to get in on one of the best 2D games since Custer’s Revenge. And like Custer’s Re...

Perfect MGS2 playthrough by ninja zombie cyborgs, Konami

If you have any curiousity as to how the real Solid Snake might do his thang in real life -- as opposed to how someone like me might clumsily guide him through mishap after glorious mishap, slaying hundreds of guards and so...
