Ep. 12

In the chair today is none other than video game speedrunner, among other things, Lance Mudryk. He's here to give us a crash course on the Speedrun community: what they do, why they do it, and how one goes from casual gamer to shaving seconds off a GoldenEye run.

We define a bunch of video game terms, discuss why speedrunners tend to focus on older/retro games, and reminisce about Justin.tv - or as you younglings might now it as Twitch.

If you'd like to take a look at Lance's first world record you can do so here (https://rankings.the-elite.net/~Taber/time/143194) or see all of his Speedrun-goodness here (https://rankings.the-elite.net/~Taber).
