Doom record speed run photo

You can beat Doom in under an hour and a half

Sure, beating Doom on the hardest difficulty with perma-death on is kind of impressive, I guess. But it also takes like five hours, to say nothing of the numerous multi-hour runs in which you'll inevitably fuck up and die and have to start...

There's a new Super Mario Bros. world record speedrun

Video game masterpiece Super Mario Bros. is more than 20 years old [correction: 30 years, math is hard], but the very best attempts at playing it have all been fairly recent. The past two years have brought about many new world r...

This Mario 64 glitch walkthrough broke my brain

What is the meaning of life? I'm not sure, but I'm beginning to believe it's lurking somewhere in this ridiculously in-depth Super Mario 64 glitch video commentated by pannenkoek2012. The video, a breakdown of the game's inner workings and ...

These Disney platformer speedruns bring back fond memories

Some of my favorite video games as a kid were based on Disney properties. You didn't even need to like the source material to appreciate them -- they were just plain good games. Tough, too. Back then, a typical rental often wouldn't cut it....

It's time for Awesome Games Done Quick 2016

Awesome Games Done Quick is one of my favorite yearly events, yet I always seem to miss the opening day of the marathon broadcast. The holiday break kept me in a relatively unplugged and intoxicated state, away from the live stream, but I'm...

Azure Striker Gunvolt is getting a new speedrun mode on PC

Speedrunning is one of my favorite things in gaming right now. It's not so much the rush you get from actually doing it well, but the journey you embark upon -- learning just about every facet of a game along the way to truly master it. Az...

Is this new Super Mario Bros. world record a perfect run?

A new Super Mario Bros. speedrun world record has been set (as seen above) and it looks damned near perfect. It's mostly a vanilla run, meaning the player doesn't use many glitches aside from one allowing access to the second warp pipes in...

This Spelunky run through hell is astounding

The new world record for clearing Spelunky, including hell, is 3:44:411. Holy shit. Despite knowing this run by D Tea would end successfully, I still got nervous watching it all unfold. What can I say? Rapidly navigating randomized areas wi...
