I used to do 16 star SM64 runs.

I can beat Megaman X in under 1 hr (50 minutes is about as fast as I can go). I used to practice that one a LOT. X2 I can beat under an hour as well but barely.

I have a save in Final Fantasy 7 at the bottom of Northern Crater @ 8:58, which is probably my best RPG run. I don't know how fast people have gone, but I put a lot of time into that one (it's pretty much a minimum level run since I never level up anywhere ever other than exp from bosses)

Final Fantasy 9 -> Excalibur 2 in 11 hours. I didn't put as much effort into this. Sub 10 hours is probably completely possible, I leveled up a bit in a couple spots just to make things easier for myself, but it's mostly not necessary since I abuse limit glove basically, very overpowered.

I'll edit them in if you bastards would link 'em. Plus there's already a stream thread in FFR Events.

As for my experiences with speedrunning...meh, still noob at it. Can't even get under 7h30m on Pokemon Ruby (Wattson and Norman can suck 37 dicks each)

I don't really do speedruns, but reading this thread is making me want to try something with PS2 Shinobi. Probably can't put together a great start-to-finish run, but could probably get a fantastic level time sum with a lot of retries.

But yeah I like watching people do them and I'm impressed with the optimization, but I don't like playing games to see how much of them I can skip, with the exception of games that are explicitly about that: minesweeper, Mario Kart, etc.

I broke out my XBL Arcade copy of Hydro Thunder Hurricane last night. Somehow pulled a sub-1:52 out of my ass on Storming Asgard Gauntlet. That shit is hard as hell to optimize because there's a whole bunch of swells after the first checkpoint that eat through your boost gauge. 1:50 might be possible if I learn how to do the home stretch.

I was randomly browsing SRL one night and I did see you playing Cat Planet. I told everyone in the TB chat and they were like "wait he speed runs?"

None of us knew and TB has a lot of people who wait for teh urhns.

Also we should keep a list of recommended streamers that aren't just FFR users.

Add links for say Siglemic, Cosmo, Moltov, ect (to name a few of my personal favorites)

And I thought I was alone hah.

I might get into the speedrunning bandwagon and start helping on planning some more obscure titles (basically, I'll try running some crappy games in the spirit of AwfulGDQ, like Quattro Adventure). Don't really know where to start though.

I also from time to time frequent speedrunslive to get my crave for random speedruns.

...

Hoping to see a marathon from them again some time. I love tuning in to those week long ones.

This seems like a good idea, but then people will argue over whether someone deserves to be on "teh ilst" or not, which I feel would be counterproductive. Besides, these runners are well known enough that people can sniff around the interblag for the relevant links.

Also, anyone open to discussing tool-assisted runs in here, or are we keeping this to all skill?
