Welcome back to the latest edition of Zelda Runners, your bi-weekly digest of all things Zelda speedrunning. You might think this, and all articles for the next few months may be bumper editions, thanks to the months and months I’ll be spending in self-isolation. Alas, more important things have arisen (that may or may not involve a tanooki and a dog drinking uh… vacation juice). That said, I have found the time to pull together an article covering the latest rule changes (yes,…

It’s that time of the month again! That’s right, dust off your Pegasus Boots, stick the kettle on, and get ready for another round of Zelda speedrunning.

Hey there! If you’re reading this, it means that we didn’t have a Nintendo Direct announced today, and that the author of these articles hasn’t died from shock.

Now Playing There’s been a lot happening over the last 14 days. Perhaps most notably, the Ocarina of…

Welcome back to another round of Zelda Runners! The main topic of discussion this falls once again to shenanigans concerning Ocarina of Time, which has fallen victim to yet another game changing glitch. There are also plenty of tournaments and events in the running for the next few weeks, and I’ll also be breaking down some of the manipulations found in The Minish Cap. Sound exciting? Let’s get started then!   Now Playing Yes, it’s happened again. The Ocarina of Time Any% category has once…

First of all, Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all still having a lovely break, and if you have been dragged kicking and screaming back to work already, then I hope you’re not too stressed already. But before you return for your 4th helping of leftovers (we really shouldn’t have bought so many pigs in blankets again), allow me to showcase some of the events that have made this year (and decade) so special in the speedrunning world, and how things…

  Hello, and welcome back to, would you believe, the final Runners article before Christmas. Normally at this time of year, I’d spend roughly 10 paragraphs commenting (read: Complaining) the recent Best Zelda Ever List, as Skyward Sword takes its traditional place of “Not First”. This year, however, I won’t. I’m happy that a brand new title, Ocarina of Time grabbed the top spot. Truly the breath of fresh air the series needed, I’m so glad it’s shaken up the list, providing the…
