    Hey, let's watch someone clear Metroid Prime in 55 minutes

    Mmm, Metroid Prime. One of my all-time favorites, and yet it's been far too long since I've last played it. For that matter, I don't know that I've ever watched a speedrun of the game in its entirety. This 55:53 single-segme...

    Beating Spelunky in under two minutes

    One minute and fifty five seconds -- that's the new world-record any% time for Spelunky set by Pibonacci. It hurts my brain thinking about how many runs must have happened before the right conditions presented themselves for this to unfold.

    Super Mario World's too good to not watch three people play simultaneously

    This video may be just more than 50 minutes long, but I managed to have quite a few nostalgic flashbacks to my youth in that short time. I played the hell out of it as a kid. And that was very correct of me, because after al...

    I can only half grasp the interest in watching speed run streams (or any game streams). I can also only half grasp $713,338.96, which to me feels a fortune. That's how much Summer Games Done Quick 2014 raised in donatio...

    This three-minute Super Mario Bros. 3 speedrun is impressive

    I thought finishing Super Mario Bros. 3 with my dad over the course of a week when I was a little girl was impressive, but this speedrun clocking in at 2:54:98 has forever shamed me. Of course, it lessens the pain a bit to k...
