Sig has a good presence here but no Cosmo thread, so here's one.

stream - http://www.twitch.tv/cosmowright

9.5k people watching right now (most he's ever had) for the best Wind Waker run he's ever had. Could be the run.

Also here's his YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/cosmospeedruns

Ocarina of Time in 22 minutes with full commentary (non-TAS) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jylqMvV7dEE

Ocarina of Time All Medallions run in 1:18 with full commentary (non-TAS) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0LqjrkpZ1A

Some OoT highlights - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0LqjrkpZ1A&t=38m57s and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0LqjrkpZ1A&t=46m58s

I was about to post something but there doesn't seem too much of a general interest in speedrunning on GAF. The run is pretty fucking good so far, but there's still a lot that can go wrong. If you've never seen a Wind Waker speedrun before you already missed a lot of crazy shit, but there's still a lot of interesting glitches coming up :D

I'd recommend the new twitch.tv layout though, it has a bigger video area

We're all SM64 speedrun addicts.....thats about it

Edit:
I had to stop watching because I cant take him seriously with those black nails.
Also, i dont really see there being much skill involved with Zelda speedruns.

Edit 2:

There doesn't seem to be much interest in speedrunning outside of Siglemic/Cosmo and friends who run the most popular titles. A shame considering that's a handful of people out of many speedrunners on SpeedRunsLive running classic games.

I disagree. The games aren't super technical like SM64, but there are so many glitches that you have to know about, some of which are frame-prefect. Also, a 4 hour WW run is much more of an endurance run, where everything has to go perfectly.

I can recommend peaches_, who runs Mischief Makers and Quest 64 from time to time. Really enjoyable.

Well you can't fault people for only watching Sig or Cosmo. I mean, I like watching Ennopp play MM, but watching a mute Swedish guy run a game with a long intro is kind've a hard sell compared to Mario 64.

Man, Wind Waker is such a wonderful game. The look STILL holds up, and the size of the world/exploration of islands captures the sense of the original Zelda better than any other. I really wish they would make a sequel to this game, with more islands and better dungeon design.

I may not fault Siglemic/Cosmo since they do their part for Speedrunning, though I've observed a trend of Twitch staff promoting their streams on the front page/over twitter above even SDA/SRL events like Sandython or KingsofPoverty. Despite that though, I hope Siglemic's attendance at AGDQ next week will bring in some new viewers/more donations, minus of course all the idiots that frequent Sig's chat.

Making it work in browsers without flash would remove the need for 50 different apps.

Poor Cosmo btw, the one time he decides on no ads, 13k viewers.

It's pretty ridiculous. Tingle doesn't even decode all of the charts at once.

I really, really love the art style of this game but the downsides are pretty significant.

He just lost a little during the most recent part of the hunt, but he still has a good shot at the WR.

JP version has different chart placement for a few of them. they're a bit slower than the english versions.

The Japanese version's triforce chart quest is longer. You get charts leading to charts until you get the triforce chart.
