Gotta go fast! A speedrunning thread

Post by Fluffyumpkins » Mon Jan 05, 2015 11:24 am

Speedrunning is pretty cool, and there happens to be a huge speedrunning marathon going on all week.

If you want to watch any speedruns after they've occurred, there's a nice link dump on Reddit.

The entire event is a fundraiser for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, so consider giving a couple of bucks if you're into speedrunning, preventing cancer, or being a good person. Or just watch the event and have fun.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

Man, if you think about it, I'm still working on my first any% completion of Beet and I've been playing that stupid fucking game for like 10+ years. That's like some NetHack levels of difficulty.


You're right though my retard hands will never know the feeling of clearing an incredibly difficult 12 because I am bad and don't know how to adjust my playstyle.
