wohdin on 2012-07-02 02:12:00 This "world record" isn't counting TAS, right? I highly doubt that it would be even remotely record-breaking if it were. Nonetheless, it's very impressive.
on 2012-07-02 03:06:00 Try playing the fucking game like a regular person
DrW on 2012-07-02 03:28:00 As far as I can tell, there's a section missing: The finishing of Sakon's Hideout to before New Wave Bossa Nova.
Clocktower on 2012-07-02 04:08:00 speed runs are a waste of time. get a life bro.

on 2012-07-02 06:32:00 Awesome, great work!
Cheezburgr on 2012-07-02 06:32:00 So many assholes here thinking they know shit about the game when they beat it in 5 days.
Mad as fuck and jealous kids,it's ridiculous these days.
Stank on 2012-07-02 07:33:00 Nice run, good work
on 2012-07-02 07:58:00 Im sorry but playing MM on PC downt count as a speed run in my books...nor can it be classified a World Record unless it was on the console it was created for

Michigan Mike on 2012-07-02 09:14:00 Congratulations! However, I have to agree with others, in that I don't feel it should count as a world record unless it was done on the original console using an actual MM cartridge. It just doesn't feel authentic. When the people who break the arcade game records for highest scores and longest games on games like Pacman and stuff like that do their records, they are done on the original machines. I think all World Records should be done that way. In any case, cool run!
Ash on 2012-07-02 09:21:00 Nice one, man. Can't wait to see more!
TheyMad on 2012-07-02 10:06:00 Man someone pass the bread cause there's a whole lot of jelly in these comments!
Seriously though, this was an amazing speed run. Good work.
Austin Dickson on 2012-07-02 13:33:00 This wasn't done on a PC to all of those saying it was. The game was played on Wii's Virtual Console.
PN1 on 2012-07-02 16:34:00 Dear God, that is hours behind the actual speed run record.
Actual record: 1:47:47 (done on Virtual console)
Even SpeedDemosArchive (which is notorious for not keeping up to date with Zelda speed runs) has a 1:49:33 on their site (done on N64).
Austin Dickson on 2012-07-02 17:04:00 Are those 100% speed runs though?
qwerty1605 on 2012-07-02 21:15:00 Okay everyone get your facts straight before posting. 1. It was done on a console on an official nintendo release of the game. 2. It is the 100% wr not the any% wr. 3. TASes are completely different from World Records and there has not been a 100% TAS 4. ZFG is a scrub
incom on 2012-07-04 20:02:00 >"speed runs should be done on the console as Nintendo intended"
>"speed runs should use glitches in the game that obviously weren't intended"
I know which I care about--hint, it's the one that doesn't require designer intent.
Gsgdh they on 2013-03-17 21:43:00 That is NOT the world record
