      It's always worth the wait! You make really high quality videos, so it's completely understandable that it would take more time.

    Dude, seriously, you should think about making a whole documentary on speedrunning, maybe even a series of long documentaries on the most important/popular games. I could totally see this in Netflix or something similar!

    There's a very interesting but hidden community revolved around a game with just two maps in Minecraft, on the server Hypixel. It's a game called 'Zombies'.
    It may not seem like much at the surface, but there's actually so much more to it than just a 'fun little co-op minigame'. For just under a year, through many updates and changes to the game, lots of new generations of players would come and go; new speedrunning strategies would be used; many new bugs and exploits would be found... the community started as nothing, grew a whole lot- even made a Discord server with 250+ members... this was all because everyone had one common goal- to get on the top 10 leaderboards. If you want me to go into more depth about this, message me on discord qwerty#9396. Really interesting stuff.

    can you make a documentary style video like this one about bhops

  • FlavaShaka
    FlavaShaka 7 days ago

    Nicely made video for sure. However this kinda just highlights one negative aspect of speedrunning to me, at least where glitches are allowed. Eventually someone works out a glitch which lets you finish a game or level in a matter of seconds, and the only real skill involved is the patience to play it through sixty thousand times, and the category is dead. And it kinda leaves you wondering why you bothered caring in the first place.

    Dude, you can do those wall jumps in Warrio Stadium. I haven't played this game in like 10 years but I remember that I was able to wall jump at the start and then wall jump again which completed one lap in like 5 seconds. I was able to do that shit 3x in a loop for the 3 lap time trial in like 15 secs. I also remember that Toad was the best at doing that for some reason. Dunno if that's the most efficient way now but I was never into speedrunning, I just discovered it and did it for fun.

    This was amazing, as a kid playing this track on the ds, i couldve never imagined that somewhere someone had beat it in less than 20 seconds, even if it wasnt possible in my console, you sir have won a subscriber forever

    Great narrative!
    It Is sí good that I watch the whole video even though I have never played that game.
    And great pause before showing the sucessful weathertenko.

    I don't know why this is impressive, yet it is. Either you put in the time in which case why by impressed, it's like ordering a pizza and being shocked when it arrives. Or you didn't and it's chance, in which case it's like a gold rock from the sky landing in your yard. Cool, but not exactly an achievement. So what's the deal? Some sort of combination alchemy? Like putting in some of the work and getting some of the luck makes it both cool and earned? Some third qualitative type of event? A sort economy of scale where two forces working together are better than three working apart? I feel like that answer is important because it may shed light on free will itself. Chance vs determinism. Chaos vs order. Subjective vs objective.

    This video is amazing. I was and I am still surprised how GOOD this is made. I didn´t have particular interest in this topic at all, but how this video was done and deliverd baffles my mind.
    Don´t know why, but it gave me the chills.
    You got some SERIOUS talent, if I would be a professor for video-making (just making this up (I think)), I would take this as a reference for teaching.

    Serious question here. Wouldn't PAL version be easier? It runs slower, basically underclocked allowing you more time to react to things/ allow you to time things more precisely?

      Yes, it´s VaporWave and SynthWave. Search for "Home -- Resonance", trust me. Used in this video as well.
