Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 10th, 2015 | EarthBound, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

This year’s Summer Games Done Quick event was amazing, and EarthBound was one of the games played!

EarthBound speedrunner Aurilliux managed to reach the end of the game in 1 hour and 27 minutes as hundreds of thousands of people watched from around the world! Here’s a look at the live run, which features some crazy random number manipulation that almost feels like card-counting in a card game 😛

I’m familiar with most of the tricks used here, but the use of multiple save files and such was totally new to me! Amazing work figuring all this out, EarthBound speedrunning community!

And, like card counting, it’s legal and not really “cheating”, but if I catch you doing this in MY establishment you won’t really have “kneecaps”!

The SGDQ Twitch chat was full of spammy garbage.

All Twitch chats in excess of 1,000 users are full of spammy garbage. I was surprised for a chat of 100,000 users there was no moderation.

I did enjoy everyone using scared/crying/praying emoticons during the Giygas fight though.

Actually, the chat was pretty tame during the Earthbound run.
