I always get a kick out of speed runs through video games. Sure, you and I have been witnessing them for years now. Watching recorded videos of people moving through games and finishing them as fast as they possibly can. It's an eye full alright, and by now you may have become somewhat desensitized by them after seeing them so much.
Well, not so fast, your trip through speed run world isn't quite over just yet. Here is another one to shake up your living room. How about this, from start to finish, completing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (SOTN) in only under 60 minutes. Sound too good to be true?, read on grasshopper.
A fellow by the name of Romscout might ring a bell with some of you. This one is notorious for speed runs through some of his favorite games. Symphony of the Night only being one of them. He currently holds the world record in finishing SOTN all the way to Dracula's death (any %percentage) using the Xbox Live Arcade version of it. The number one goal of the speed run, get to the end using any methods you possibly can, and that INCLUDES the glitches of course.
Back dashing, check, Fairy glitch, check, item duplication, a must have. Whatever it takes, do it. That's just one of the keys to a successful speed run. Oh, and also being one hell of a game player. Can't leave that out now can we? Let me know what you think of the new speed run video below. It's worth watching at least once. Just don't fall out of your chair.
