Default Live speedruns thrad

As a contrast to the tool-assisted one, this thread is for speedruns that are played live. A lot of these are going to be on Twitch so they'll be links (because I'm too lazy to add an embed code for Twitch videos at the moment; maybe later).

I'll start out with a couple of super-glitchy ones.

Super Metroid GT Code. This guy has a bunch of other world record SM speedruns that are equally delicious but not as glitchy. I'll post these later.

YouTube Video

The really good part starts at about two hours in. This is faster than the TAS by about an hour, because it skips so much of the game. Make sure you listen to the audio or you'll have absolutely no idea what's going on.

My favorite site ever :

http://speedrunslive.com/

Run (and I think owned?) by Cosmo whom is pretty much the king of LoZ speed running, especially in WindWaker and Ocarina of Time.

If your in the mood for watching a speed run or practice for one thats a damn good place to start

YouTube Video


Cosmo using the latest method to speed run OoT for charity a few months ago.
He currently holds the world record at about 19 minutes though that run is not live in the sense of a AGDQ run (still great to watch!).

While he runs it he also goes over the history of OoT speed running and also breaks down a few cool quirks that have been discovered and general things that have happened pretty much over the last 10+ years.

100% and Reverse Boss Order from the Super Metroid speedrunner above. The Reverse Boss Order one has to be seen to be believed.

I've watched a couple of Awesome/Summer Games Done Quick videos recently. Pokémon SoulSilver was great: the runner, Werster, really knew his stuff, and had an entertaining way of describing it. I don't like the runners so much in Final Fantasy VI - Essentia barely speaks and Puwexil is knowledgeable but kind of dreary - but the game itself, and the strategies they apply, make it worth seeing. I'm about half way through it right now. I also watched the SSX3 all-peak run and thought "this isn't that impressive" - CloakedYoshi wiped out a couple of times - before I realised that it was three whole minutes faster than my best time

You should check out MexiricanBassMonkey's run during SGDQ of LeafGreen (may have been AGDQ). Super entertaining and quirky



Cosmo very recently locked in the new WR for OoT any%Glitched at 18:29 IIRC its been over 4 months since he last got a PB.

The VOD is not up yet on youtube yet but Cosmo got another WR on OoT any%/Glitched and it most likely will be unbreakable it seems. He nailed a HESS that was thought to only be possible in TAS runs and he was already ahead a full 20 or so seconds when he landed it. Ill edit this post when he puts the vod up on YT ( I hate twitch vods )

Anyway this is pretty huge

edit:

Heres a good description for why its pretty insane

"He pulled off an insanely complex trick thats been nicknamed the "God HESS". It involves rolling into and shielding a falling rock to initiate a Hyper Extended Super Slide (HESS) That propels him backwards. He uses this to get down the tower ramp very rapidly. At a very specific point during the HESS he must Z-Target Zelda in order to cause Link to achieve a specific angle. This allows him to hit the corner of the bounded area at the bottom of the ramp. He then has to (literally) pray that this angle falls within the very small window of angles that enables the still continuing HESS to clip him through the barrier. He THEN has to pray again that this angle allows him to touch the Loading zone on the same frame as the void-out that would normally occur from falling. This is called the Void Warp.
Cosmo did extensive research and practice for this trick, tracking memory addresses in emulation. He determined that the trick itself, all said and done, has only a roughly 8% chance to succeed when all factors are accounted for.
Suffice it to say... Holy Shit..."

New-ish Super Metroid RBO speedrun. This shatters the old WR by like four minutes.

Normally when I'm sat grinding a way on a game that doesn't take a whole lot a concentration I'll watch this.

YouTube Video


They finish the entire game in around 10 hours and it's really entertaining, SpikeVegeta is one of my favorite speedrunners.

Oh some guys are doing that thing

you know that thing

what is it again

Ah yes, the "December of Final Fantasy". Two guys are racing 21 Final Fantasy games over the month of December (almost every game). Last time I watched they were both on the FFIV games (After Years), now one is on FFVI and the other is on Crisis Core.

linky

EDIT: Tbh this deserves its own thread, imma split it out.

He did a new version just a little bit ago and hit a proper world record time with it.

It should be pointed out that while this is the fastest version performed on console with a controller, it's not the fastest version performed on a console period. As far as I know, that is still this version. That wasn't a live speedrun though.

It's pretty impressive that twenty-five years after its release date people are still discovering new things about Super Mario World. It really speaks to its endurance as a video game classic.
