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?
    All of Matthias' vids can be found on his TheXvid channel:

      Yeah, in German we don't have the English "th" sound at all. That's also why many Germans tend to say "ze" instead of "the". ;)

    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 8 days 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

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

  • Ron the Auraknight

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

    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.

    Is there such a thing as speedrunning without cheating? Lol I mean these people are using glitches to just go behind the finish line amd get free laps for crying out loud. Lol

    • Litigious Society
      Litigious Society 2 months ago

      BLOODY__FATALITY Yes, but it isn't always the most popular of the categories for a game. For example, no glitches or cheats are used for the best time on Mile Tyson's Punch Out.

    If I were one of the other speedrunners, I'd just feel like I was sabotaging him if I took any of his records. I'd at least want to hold off taking any world records until he'd got all 32/32.

  • 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

    Forgive my ignorance if this is a stupid question. I understand that the records have to be documented, but is there any time stamp on the videos, or could someone theoretically have lots of better runs ready to upload in case someone beats their record?

  • Austin Miller

    I’d say the greatest achievement in speedrunning history would be where you achieve the FASTEST POSSIBLE time with absolutely nothing left to conquer.

    little did you know, abney would grab the first triple tenko run on chocolate mountain in history... only a matter of weeks after this video was uploaded
    good luck mathias, if you can get it in under 20,000 tries then maybe abney might get dethroned

    • RWhiteGoose

      Abney's Weathertenko is a shortcut record. Matthias is going for the non-shortcut records.

    you cant rly compare games by registered records that easily beecause if you take game like mario kart the routes are so much easier to learn and then send a record than a game like dark souls or some zeldas.

  • Matt Petty

    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

    What’s even more impressive is Shock hold all the WRs on the GBA tracks AND all the SNES tracks in Mario Kart Super Circuit, along with 37 of the Flap WRs. So that means he has 77/80 WRs, which is a higher percentage than 31/32.
