Good morning GAF,

I don't know if this has been posted here yet (did a Google search, didn't find anything) or if it's even thread worthy but this guy (Siglemic) has been live streaming his attempt to break the WR in SM64 for 6 days now. The current world record is 1:47:49 and his current best is 1:48:32. He is insanely good at the game so it's pretty cool to watch for a while.

Update:

He finally did it. Here's the World Record run for those of you who missed it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqGL53OsOfY

Wow, he's incredibly good at this game. I have no idea how he can move so accurately with the N64 joystick. I have tried playing my N64 within the past couple months and I found it difficult. He's doing such precise movements with ease.

Pretty incredible. Makes me sad though, that the first game that I set out to beat, took me a couple days, this guy does it in a little less than two hours ;_;

Pretty incredible skill on display here and it's really impressive seeing it live. Switching between this and SC2 at the moment.

Seriously, he even got all the fucking coins during that penguin race. Staying on the slope during that part is hard enough for me.

lol I can't believe that he had time to not only win the race, but go back to the beginning of the level, open up the cannons, and then beat the koopa to the top a 2nd time.

A couple wasted jumps on that last star in the ghost house. Poor guy must be getting tired.

It's worth noting that this is a 120 star run, and under 2 hours is insane.

Yup. He probably got distracted because he once knew a guy who injected weed and OD'd.

Or maybe it was the Dire Dire Docks tune.

Yeah I have it open in one window, with a 2nd firefox window to the right of it, covering up the chat. It's impossible to avoid and it hurts my head when I read it lol



And that sucks about the reset. I guess he had to reset, but what a shame.

Ah, a reset.

It must be very hard to keep starting over when going for a WR time. I could never handle that.

Also these ads are very obtrusive on this streaming site.
