Hi all!

 

I'm just starting this topic up because it's one that I enjoy a lot but haven't really seen discussed. When an event called Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2013 was brought to my attention, it got me hooked on watching speedruns of all kinds. Of course, among my favorite speedrunners are those who involve themselves with Sonic the Hedgehog games; runners like werster, DarkspineSonic, Paraxade, and bertin.

 

Have any of you checked out any of these runs? Werster's Sonic 3 and Knuckles run with Mike89 and Paraxade or Darkspinesonic's Sonic '06 runs are especially entertaining to me. Let me know what you think!

I've never done a speedrun for an entire game, but if it counts for anything I've held the world record for the desert ruins boss on Lost World 3DS for a good 8 months now tongue.png

Like on an in-game worldwide leaderboard? Can you give us a pic of that?

On my old channel I did this. Held the world record for about a month. I think it's still in the top 10 but it's definitely not the fastest anymore. The big problem was that I can't do D-Speed for shit in Generations so I had to rely on cramming in as many M-Speed jumps instead.

 

Still proud of the outcome though.

(lol, the cheesy 'Thank you very much for watching!' at the end)

I've been thinking about starting to attempt speedruns actually. I would have to practice a lot though, since I haven't played some Sonic games in quite some time. I usually end up watching Cosmo speedrun Ocarina of Time and I still lose my sh*t at how good he is.

I love watching Sonic speed runs. I watch them when I don't have much else to do, or in another window so I can half-watch while I'm writing and what not. Watching a speed run of Sonic Heroes made me re-appreciate the game a little more (which carried over when I went back and played the game myself.

 

Having never finished Sonic 06 (for obvious reasons), maybe I'll give Darkspinesonic's speed run a watch so I can experience it in a new light.
