i do a lot of speedrunning. i guess i’ll share some runs i’m relatively happy with. comments belong to the video above it.


my baby! more to come here. 52 is inevitable.

sub 1:23 was tough!

sub 27 was tougher!

WR is still 58.8 by a japanese runner from way back in 2001, as submitted to an official nintendo contest, verified by in-game code

this was WR when set, but has since been surpassed by a high 43. want to come back to this game to retake it eventually

this is my last standing WR in blue storm currently, and is still “untied” (goldeneye 007 terminology for a time which is untied to the whole second - e.g. next best time is 2’12" or worse).

DKR is a magnificent speedgame, but it can destroy your hands (and controller, in hover) if you’re not careful! very input-heavy game

runabout games are heavily underrated

1080 = class

sub-32!

you can’t beat SMK as a speedgame for utter precision

MK64 is a game you play when you want to annihilate your N64 controller

sub-1’12"!

this took awhile to accomplish!

when I was in college I spent some time practicing running bionic commando NES. I think I got my time to around 15:00, which isn’t too bad looking at the times most people are getting on yt right now.

New in-game-time record of 8 seconds for Doom E1M1. What an absolute madman:

A bit about what went into this:

I never knew blaster master was this busted

edit: uhhh apparently the dude narrating this is a nazi white supremecist. see post below this.

this video starts slow but it’s very worth watching imo

karl jobst is a pretty fucked up person, tbh

the goldeneye speedrunning community in general has produced a large quantity of extremely questionable individuals

karl jobst is one of the people who was seen in the gigantic imgur dump of white nationalist/alt-right/racist/misogynist discord chat logs, intended to expose rwhitegoose and several other GE colleagues and associates’ political beliefs. i am not at my house and typing on this laptop is unenjoyable so i’ll put up a link

please note the following link is extremely disturbing: https://imgur.com/a/X7qLRXa

yeah I did not like the narrator by the end of the video

this is hardly surprising

should I like. take the video down or something :grimacing:

If meauxdal hadn’t already provided the warning directly beneath, I would have suggested throwing that info in your post.
