    Default Super mario 64 Speed Run

    Awesome, very impressive. So far, my favourite bits are climbing up Whomps Fortress and getting 13 seconds on Peach's slide.

    There are some glitches I never knew about before. I was really impressed with the rabbit trick - it's just like the old Easter Egg from Adventure. You can't help but be impressed, although I can only imagine how long it took this person to figure out all these tricks.

    That's helped me get so much further in the game. It's like a quick view walkthrough. I'm not much good at working things out for myself.

    Amazing I knew a couple of his tricks but damn the Back long jump I never saw that coming. I also love watching the one up try to catch up to mario.

    Holy crap, I thought I was pretty damn good at the game, but this guy is a GOD! Every minute or so he was doing crap I NEVER woulda thought about doing. The rabbit trick was most impressive. I knew you could find a glitch to carry it around but I never thought you could use it to get past locked doors. And the stair glitch trick literally made me shout out "WHAT THE F**K??!?!"

    Better go practice.

    Wow. I can't even the beat the damn thing going at a normal pace. Then again, I never did care for the game, but this is something special. That takes a tons of skill to do. I'd certainly argue it's a more impressive run than the 2-D Mario ones we've seen.

    really cool, i love watching speed runs. this one seems like it took a lot of practice, the jumps seem to be very precise.

    Damn, I love speed runs, but DAAAAAAMN, do I love this one.

    What the fuck is up with that backwards stairs bum-jump thing? WTF?!

    Beating the game with 16 stars...priceless. I bet he could have shaved at least a minute off of that too.

    I've never played mario 64 (but I've trying to get a copy for cheap) - how long does it normally take to beat if you're just going through at regular pace - 2 or 3 hours?

    suprisingly he only had a few minor mitakes (like getting in the princess peach window, and a few little bumbs here and there) so yea a minute seems right.

    I wonder how long it took him to find out which stars are the fastest to get, or how to do those glitches

    Very impressive, especialy the final bowser level (before he fights bowser).

    Um, I'd say more like 10 hours if you know what you're doing.

    That was definitely fun to watch.

    Any info on the actual run? Like if Twin Galaxies accepts it as a record? Or would that rabbit trick be disallowed by them?

    Holy crap! This one is even faster!!!!!
    This guy beats him by like a minute or so if you count them as starting at the same point. Has him beaten either way.

    http://speeddemosarchive.com/Mario64.html#16

    And that can STILL probably be beaten by a minute or so. This guy pulls a couple of extra tricks out of his sleave and perfects in places where the other guy messes up.
