The Greatest Achievement in Speedrunning History Might Happen Soon (Mario Kart 64 PERFECTION!)

  • Published on May 12, 2018
  • One man, Matthias Rustemeyer, is standing on the precipice of what might be the very greatest achievement in all of speedgaming history... holding the World Record on *all* 32 of Mario Kart 64's Non-Shortcut World Records. But which records, and which fellow Mario Kart 64 gamers are standing in his way?

    Matthias just got the flap on DKJP with 42'11. He's now only need 1 more to set 32/32 world records and be the king of Mario Kart 64 and maybe gaming history.

    As of now, Matthias is still at 31/32, but has made significant progress. Zoran still holds the DKJP Flap record at 42.07, but Matthias has improved his own personal record to 42.11 as of now. I watched his 42.11 today while it was happening live.

    Here's an update: while Matthias is at 30/32, this time he now holds all 16 of the 3lap records, and needs just the DKJP and Mario Raceway Flap Records to hold all 32 at once.

    mario kart 64 skips are more impressive. this is just optimal driving. the 3/3 weathertenko was easily the best. not even a frame perfect trick, but like half a frame perfect trick. he statistically had a 1/64000 chance of hitting it 3 times, and he did. abney317 is his name.

    • B23 HipHop
      B23 HipHop 8 days ago

      But how is hitting 1/64000 anywhere near as impressive as optimal driving? I mean it would be impressive if he could hit the 1/64000 trick MOST of the time he does that track/run but getting it just once or only on a tiny minority of runs just shows that he does NOT have the skill it requires and that when he DOES succeed it is that 1 time out of the last sixty four thousand failures.

  • jakethreesixty
    jakethreesixty 3 months ago

    Just coming from a racing gamer perspective, why doesn't Matthias hug the inside of *all* of the corners on most tracks? Apexing doesn't apply to mario kart, so taking the shortest distance should be faster? Kind of curious

    • jakethreesixty
      jakethreesixty 3 months ago

      To explain further, the more outside on a corner you are, the farther you have to travel, it's an increase in circumference; the distance around the outside of a circle.

    I may be wrong about this but does abney even try for these records seriously? I think some of the reason he dominates it is because abney is too busy doing 26k attempts to pull off the hardest skip in the game 3 times in a row. I’m sure if abney didn’t spend so much time with SC and full play throughs the time trial category would be a more even mix of both of them

    • Daniel Burbank
      Daniel Burbank 2 months ago

      He's also been playing a lot of SC since VAJ came back

    • Daniel Burbank
      Daniel Burbank 2 months ago

      Abney has done a lot of non-sc but not as much the last couple years. Non-sc is a real grind and he keeps getting blisters when he does it. Hopefully he figures that out at some point

    Abney's accomplishment on Choco Mountain might have to be the greatest of all time.

    • Andrew Blechinger
      Andrew Blechinger 2 months ago

      All depends on what you find more impressive: One shining moment or the culmination of decades of effort. This is not to take anything away from Abney's 3/3 Weathertenko, of course.

  • Ron the Auraknight
    Ron the Auraknight 4 months ago +1

    I thought abney held the best three lap (Without grandprix) in Choco Mountain for pulling off three weather tenkos in a row

    • Andrew Blechinger
      Andrew Blechinger 2 months ago

      The existence of tricks like the Weathertenko is the reason the records are split into shortcut and non-shortcut.

    • Sam Woodhouse

    Love the video, fun narrative to create about a moment that would otherwise go largely unremarked upon.
    However, i feel like “the greatest speed gaming achievement” stuff is a bit overboard for what amounts to IL’s. IL records are great, but i feel like they can be achieved via brute-forced repetition, where full runs rely on the same muscle memory skills, but with the addition of improvisation, strategy, and split second decision making

    Your point of Mario Kart 64 is kind of exaggerated since games like Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 likely have over 1000 people do time trials, and i dont think there is a single greatest achievement in gaming history. U cant really compare two game’s achievements significance.

  • conspiracies are just great stories

    Goose, I love how you handle your videos when talking about the good, the bad and the ugly of speedrunning. Your professional, eloquent, well versed and definitely educated so I'm glad your out there. Most other speed gaming players or streamers are really boring or so cringe worthy I truly can't appreciate the skill they have. I loved your "degenerate speedrunners" video from a while back. So true yet also paints a good picture about the truly successful and productive people in the scene

  • conspiracies are just great stories

    You say "only 16 courses" but when you look at the era this game came out in, you really see how that was just insane to be able to race on 16 completely different tracks. Might not be as many as a racing sim or rally racer but it was sick

    No. Just no to the whole thing. Speedrunning a game like mariokart is so much easier than say a 4 hour story driven rpg. In comparison speed running Mario kart is a light play session. If he screwed up all he had to do was reset and be back where he was in 5 minutes
