Pit Stop: What Makes a Speedrun… BAD?

Pit Stop: What Makes a Speedrun… BAD?

We always talk about speedruns from a "watchability" perspective on our show, but what exactly does that mean? What can make a speedrun bad to watch? What about a game that's bad to speedrun at all?? Luigi and Hobz dive into the nitpicky sides of speedrunning in this meta topic on the genre as a whole.

Link… would you kindly open your eyes and grab that surfboard, even though it may look a little corpsey. Some dude named Ayn Rand or whatever built an underwater hippie farm, and the Royal family is afraid of losing all that delicious brow sweat. If you need more info, @kungfufruitcup stopped by Need For Speedrunning to break down the current Bioshock Any% World Record by @kpczombie. Would you kindly listen to it?

You thought I was gonna say the move Hobz found that was subsequently named after him, didn’t you? That wouldn’t be very fitting for the most humble speedrun podcast on the internet, would it now?

Pit Stop: Final Fantasy X

Welcome to the first NFSR Pit Stop! In this series, we're going to look into topics, ideas, and runs too big or broad for a regular episode of Need for Speedrunning. Leading things off, we take a look at a long RPG run to see how runners have broken them over the years. When we picked FFX and its 10 hour run, we sure didn't expect to find one of the most convoluted RNG systems in video game history, but luckily @Davesterio was there to walk us through the drops, the skips, and the most beautiful sounding glitch in the world! Pass Yuna the creatine and queue up for NFSR Pit Stops!
