LackAttack24, an addict gamer and Zelda enthusiast, has claimed first place on the Zelda Speed Runs leaderboards for fastest time playing through the first quest of The Legend of Zelda. In doing so, he has set the world record for fastest playthrough of the game.The timing starts from the moment you gain control of Link (that is, after the select screen), and ends once Link rescues Princess Zelda…

Yet another speedrunning record has been smashed, and this time it’s for the 100% Completion of Wind Waker (GCN). A 100% speedrun consists of doing everything possible in the game, such as mastering every minigame, collecting every item, gathering every heart piece, and – of course – finishing everything in the main quest…

A new World Record has been set for a 100% completion run of Link’s Awakening DX. Keep in mind that a 100% run does allow for glitches, so long as the game is 100% completed. We understand some prefer for pure glitchsless runs. In an effort to be more fair to the speed running community and our fans, we’re going to be reporting on all speed run records that get set for all of the given categories. That includes…

The original Majora’s Mask is now not to be left out of the Any% Speedrun World Records this week. Just a few days ago we shared with you that the Any% Speedrun World Record for Majora’s Mask 3D had been broken not just once but twice in one day, and now we also have to add the original Majora’s Mask to the list. The very same day we told you about Majora’s Mask 3D, FullGrownGaming took first place on the original…

Speedruns have become increasingly more popular over the years and it takes these intrepid gamers no time to tackle what would seem to most, an insane obstacle. The latter is definitely true of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. The game has only been out for a few months and we have already seen numerous gamers try to gain the fastest time. Not even one week ago iwabi, a Japanese speedrurner was able to secure the Majora’s Mask Any…

Many may recall that Cosmo, popular speedrunner of Ocarina of Time with his famous world record of 18:10, once said that “Ocarina of Time is dead”, in terms of new speedrunning tricks being found. Even the now world record holder, 17-year-old skater82297, said in August that the ever-chased-after sub-18-minute run would not happen. Yet, just recently, on his Twitch stream, skater caught a 17:47 world record. This just goes to show that there is almost always room for optimization, and…

Ocarina of Time is not only considered one of the best games of all time, it’s also one of the single most popular games in the speed running community. The record has been set many times over the last handful of years, but when Cosmos set a run of 18:10, it was virtually deemed impossible to beat. He held that record for nearly 8 months before a new glitch (yes, new glitches are still be discovered) enabled a sub 18 minute run, first completed by Jodenstone…

There may be a lot of talk about Ocarina of Time speedruns, but The Legend of Zelda on NES still has its own active speedrunning community. An elusive goal of LoZ Any% speedrunners has been to ultimately finish the game in less than 30 minutes, a goal many prominent runners have been steadily inching toward over the last year. Earlier this week, speedrunner LackAttack24 made history by achieving this goal and setting a new world record for the classic title, finishing the game in 29 minutes and 56 seconds…

We know that the front page has seen many speedrun posts in the last few weeks, but with the discovery of a new trickOcarina of Time speedrunners have been diligently refining the current Any% route. After skater82297’s impressive world record of 18 minutes and 3 seconds, the goal among OoT speedrunners has been to be the first person ever to complete the game in less than 18 minutes. Well history has been made, as speedrunner Jodenstone has reached this goal and completed the game in 17 minutes and 55 seconds…

We knew this was coming, and with the new glitch what was once thought of as impossible has now been achieved. Jodenstone has amazed us all again with another any % Ocarina of Time run, this time completing the game in only 17:55. Hit the jump to watch history in the making.
