    You can actually just delete this thread to be honest. I haven't streamed in over a month and just haven't had any drive to do so. I have one world record time and that's only because no one else runs the game. i've accepted that i'm not meant to be a speed runner and without that i have even LESS to offer vVv. So keeping my app open wouldn't really serve any purpose.

    Well, it's been almost 2 months and I haven't really heard anything... So, vVv isn't looking for speed runners? I wouldn't take it personally or anything :).

    Hey guys! Just a quick update. My stream is back to full functionality with my sound issues being resolved (my computer wasn't recognizing my headphones therefore I couldn't use my mic)! So now I'm back to streaming on Saturday and Sunday (and some Fridays). This weekend, my goal is to upload a run attempt of Darkest Dungeon! Before I start the run, I'll do a rundown of what I'm TRYING to do and hopefully things go as planned and I don't make myself look super silly :D.

    Honestly, I don't have a lot of experience with these games, so opinions are really all I have. Also, like I said before you can speed run anything that has an end. You just have to keep in mind that: 01. Games that are new aren't going to have the same resources available for new runners (i.e. tutorials). Like the Witcher 3 only has three runs posted on speedrun.com. 02. Games that run longer (over 2 hours) are probably going to be tough to grind. The two games I've run are well under an hour in length, so I don't feel any pressure to finish a run if I feel like it isn't going well. If I were to play, say, Until Dawn (#1 ranked run is 3 hours, 53 minutes), I'd feel a little obligated to finish, even if I miss a trick that saves 5 minutes on the last level of the game. These are the two issues I see with those games, but if you have a love for these games, then they won't stop you. Go get that World Record

    Go for it! Before I started, no one had posted any runs of Inside My Radio. Now there's 5-6 people who run it :).

    I think my favorite runs to watch are Luigi's Mansion and old school 2d platformers. I hope to be able to do a run at GDQ one day

    It really just comes down to what you like. You can speed run pretty much anything that has an end. For example, this guy completed a 100% speed run of Animal Crossing, which took 39 hours... He improved the world record by over 10 hours by, you guessed it, not stopping to sleep. Me personally? I don't have much interest in running anything over an hour long :/. I've run two games so far (just started like 4 months ago). I hold the world record for Inside My Radio (you can find it on Steam) at 38:48. I have also recently started running Castle of Illusion HD, but my time (43:29) is about 10 minutes over the WR. The thing about speedrunning is that you have to find a game that you're willing to play OVER and OVER and OVER again. It's all about the grind. In my short time as a speed junkie, I've found that the grind is definitely worth it in the end. There's no feeling quite like getting a new Personal Best time after hours and hours of grinding.

    I'm pretty much just speed running at the moment. I just started working on learning Castle of Illusion HD and improved my Personal Best by 15 minutes. I'm still 15 minutes or so off WR, but I'll get there ;). I love Washington. I'm stationed up here at Naval Hospital Bremerton and I couldn't be happier. The weather is great and the people are pretty cool. I have zero complaints. A fur baby is a pet. haha.
