DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA New Super Mario Bros. Wii Any% 0:30:00 Wii USA Link This category is the most action packed of them all for the time of the run. It contains a few tricks and skips that are well known in the mwsf community by now :) Since the last time i ran this game at a midwest event there have been a couple of smaller optimizations found that i think are really cool such as “Crouch strat” in 8-2 and a buzzy beetle strat in 8-1. These dont save much but they do make it possible to get 1 igt higher than originally thought possible previously. (433 and 425 respectively). Im not fully done with this submission yet, ill edit it when i know my full availability and ill have a gdq submission video to use :) I also might lower estimate to 28 mins. None yet, might add some later Not sure yet
DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA New Super Mario Bros. Wii Category Extensions All Towers 1:45:00 Wii USA Link This category is epic ngl Loads of tricks. Epic powerup houses Brand new tricks (as stated in my any% description) And ALL 8 TOWERS None rn Unsure rn
DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA Haunted Gas Station Any% 0:04:00 PC USA Link This is a cute little horror game thats pretty fun to run ngl. There are a few mechanics that can be exploited a bit such as cutscene triggers. Add a radio% run where i turn off both radios as fast as i can. This category could fit under the 4 min estimate but making it 5 mins would probably be best so...add a minute lol. This could be like $5-10. Unsure yet
SCXCRSCXCR 720° Training (Arcade) 0:20:00 Arcade USA Link This will satisfy both the skateboarding and 80s quota in one run. Follows a 1cc strategy for safety, but still involves a skate kid getting launched off several story high drops, bodying body builders, and avoiding deadly swarms of bees. Oh, and spinning. As of now I'm available whenever. Generally speaking though, afternoon to late night (e.g. 1pm to 2am) is when I'm most likely to be available.
SCXCRSCXCR 720° Any% 0:15:00 NES USA Link Fairly optimized, highly consistent run where skate kid can't stop jumping and spinning to be the best skate kid there ever was. Just enough jank to make some basic stuff more challenging and/or frustrating. Usually available whenever, though afternoon to late night is the best time for me most days.
benedictatorrbenedictatorr BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea (DLCs) Episode 2 Any% 0:50:00 PC USA Link BSI BaS E2 has us controlling Elizabeth in a more stealthy approach as we revisit Rapture and Atlas! The run itself has a handful of cool tricks, including plenty of OOB and we're actually able to make it through the entire run without killing anyone. Fri - Unavailable Sat - Unavailable Sun - Available anytime after 1AM
benedictatorrbenedictatorr Bioshock any % Hard 1:15:00 PC USA Link This puts an interesting twist on the original Bioshock any % run. The increase in difficulty makes resource management more important, and enemies actually become threats that need to be taken seriously, and some tricks need to be slightly altered. Bidwar - Save vs Harvest Little Sister Fri - Unavailable Sat - Unavailable Sun - Available anytime after 1AM
benedictatorrbenedictatorr BioShock Any % 0:50:00 PC USA Link Bioshock is a great hydro-punk dystopian horror fps. It's fast-paced and fun the whole way through with a good handful of cool tricks including deathwarps, flings in the air, dialogue manipulation and more! Bidwar - Save vs harvest little sister Fri - Unavailable Sat - Unavailable Sun - Available anytime after 1AM
benedictatorrbenedictatorr BioShock 2: Minerva's Den (DLC) Glitchless 0:23:00 PS3 USA Link Minerva's Den is considered by many to be the best bit of Bioshock content created. This category manages to capture a perfect balance of skill and action! Plus it has that sweet sweet drill dash. Goal - Spitfire minigame Fri - Unavailable Sat - Unavailable Sun - Available anytime after 1AM
benedictatorrbenedictatorr BioShock No Minor Skips 1:10:00 PC USA Link This is kind of a meme run - it's the inverted version of a fairly popular category: No Major Skips. It's basically a glitchless run, except for 3 rather significant tricks that skip entire levels. I also happen to have WR for this category :) Bidwar - Save vs harvest little sister Fri - Unavailable Sat - Unavailable Sun - Available anytime after 1 AM
HeathStreamsHeathStreams Amnesia: The Dark Descent Any% 1:00:00 PC USA Link to show the other side of the game and demonstrate the skips with detailed commentary anytime
YonduPoppinsYallYonduPoppinsYall Suite 776 Any% 0:20:00 PC USA Link I didn't get a chance to showcase this at MWSS 2020, but I would like to throw this in as an option for MSSF as a short little spooky run. It has a lot of fun crowd participation, and has some good jump scares. Change to 100% if we meet 50 Dollars, Easter Egg% if we meet 100. Would maybe need an additional 5 minutes at most past estimate if we got Easter Egg% unlocked. Preferably later PM times, I can get a confirmed time to you once it is decided if the run is in the event. That way i can coordinate with my jobs. I would prefer to do Saturday night if I had to choose.
Boohead86Boohead86 Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Komaru New Game 1:50:00 PC USA Link It's from a series that has gained a lot of traction over the last couple of years and it's unique gameplay sets it apart from the other games in the series to make it quite the entertaining run. With cool movement tech, plus good resource management, and precise aiming. Break or don't break the controller at the end of the game (would add 1 minute). English or Japanese for game language. Failing a minigame intentionally to watch an optional cutscene in Chapter 3 (Would add 3 minutes). All of May 2nd
ZojalyxZojalyx The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Character Bidwar 1:00:00 GCN USA Link I always want to submit this game and make it more known, plus character bidwars for charity Bonus Run: Tower of Orthanc (15 minute added time) anytime

SadlySadly The Simpsons: Hit & Run All Story Missions 1:45:00 PC USA Link Because it's better than tapped out. Preferably weekend at any time
seckswrecksseckswrecks Wattam Any% 2:00:00 PC USA Link You make friends, dance with them in a circle, then you eat them and poop them out and then flush the poops so they can be golden before you blow them up withe the confetti bomb hiding under your hat Meet the prince and Nobby Nobby Boy can make just about any time that weekend work
LenophisLenophis Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Rando 4:15:00 GCN USA Link Echoes the is best of the Prime series, you cannot deny it. Sorry, I don't make the rules. Since this randomizer is very customizable, I can add time with the following: Initial settings: Start at ship. 0 Starting items. Vanilla gates. Vanilla elevators. Requiring main Power Bombs or Missile Launcher to use their respective ammo will be off. Light and Dark Ammo are not split. Grapple and Screw Attack are not progressive (ie, vanilla). Defeat Amorbis, Chykka, and Quadraxis to gain access to the final area. Sky Temple Key Hints are off. This only matters if your goal is to collect the keys. Donation incentives: - Random starting location, will use random save point. This ties into number of starting items. I will use up to 5 starting items if random start is met. $100 for this one. - There are 17 gates in the game that require a translator module to access. There are four translator modules. I can set each gate manually, but it's more fun to just randomize them all. $50 for this one. - Elevators can randomized to be two-way connecting. There are a couple of other modes available, but they are still experimental, can make a seed incompletable, and won't be used. Randomizing elevators will add (!) 90 minutes to the estimate if it is met. $400 for this one. - Require Main items to use their ammo. This barely matters for the Missile Launcher. It is more meant for the Power Bombs. This will make routing more of a pain, and it could also (rarely) force the Power Bombs to never be used in the game! $50 - Splitting ammo expansions puts more emphasis on finding ammo for that specific weapon. Also makes Annihilator Beam more useful if it is found before Light/Dark beams. - Progressive Grapple forces me to pick up both Grapple Beam pickups to get the Screw Attack. Screw Attack is 100% required in all cases, but it also obsoletes the Grapple if it is found first. $50 for this one. - Make the goal all 9 Sky Temple Keys: $150. They can show up anywhere in the world. Tentatively, one day for the weekend. Won't know which until the schedule is out so I can request it off. Central time zone. Should be available between 11 am and 3 am.
LenophisLenophis Super Metroid It's actually SMZ3 - randomizer any% 3:30:00 SNES USA Link Lttp? SM? Both?! You know you want it. SAVE THE ANIMALS BIDWAR! - I will finish SM second so I can do save/kill the animals.
CountGoobyCountGooby Super Smash Bros. Melee Adventure 0:15:00 Wii USA Link Go back to the Smash room Race with Elitegamer Popsicle Name Bidwar (4 Characters) Captain Falcon Color Bidwar Anytime
HelixHelix Super Monkey Ball Deluxe in SMB2 Story Mode All Levels 0:30:00 Wii USA Link I don't need to explain monkey ball to y'all at this point lol, also it's a 4-person race and a category never-before seen at a marathon PetresInc, Alist, TheLostLlama File name (6 character limit) every day, 9am-2am will be flexible if needed
LenophisLenophis Final Fantasy any% 1:45:00 PSP USA Link I admit, I haven't played this in a couple of years, so I'm fairly rusty. However, Helix said "the answer is always yes" so that's what I'm going with. If this gets in, I will practice it and get back up to speed. Four character names, 6 letters each.
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (GBC) Any% 1:25:00 GBC USA Link The Boy Who Lived meets...Final Fantasy? Everyone is aware of the famous 3D action platformer version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone but not nearly enough people have seen the 16-bit, turn-based RPG version, and I think it's time to change that! This run features some insane tricks, including a glitch that takes us to level cap in the first 10 minutes, and death warp abuses that require frame perfect inputs. Not to mention some perfectly ugly NPC sprites. Harry Potter Cosplay - Runner will dress as Harry Potter during the run if incentive is met Available May 1st 10am-3pm, May 2nd 10am-9pm, May 3rd 2pm-9pm
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Pokémon Red/Blue Any% Glitchless 2:05:00 GBA USA Link Pokemon Red is one of the most popular games to speedrun, and the marathon route has a lot of unique changes. The game utilizes RNG manipulation for catching your god tier Nidoran and a Paras for HM use, use of red bar mechanics and instant text to skip some dialogue and jingles. The game is also perfect for racing, if we have other submissions for the category. We all want to be the very best! Catch Mewtwo and Mew (7 minutes) Nickname the Rival (7 characters, 1 minute) Nickname the Flying Pokemon (10 characters, 1 minute) Available May 1st 10am-3pm, May 2nd 10am-9pm, and May 3rd 2pm-9pm.
KonceptioN2KonceptioN2 Cartoon Cartoon Summer Resort All Episodes 0:15:00 Web USA Link Ok, yeah I know, here me out on this one. CCSR is a very fun and very quick trading RPG that features several popular characters from your favorite Cartoon Network shows from the early 2000s. The run itself features optimized movement patterns, item swaps, and a level skip that saves ample times. This run would be ideal for Silly Block. Note: this game is not run on an emulator. It is run using a Flash preservation program, which is legal and was created to save Flash games from extinction. Available May 1st 10am-3pm, May 2nd 10am-9pm, and May 3rd 2pm-9pm
SupremeDirtSupremeDirt Cave Story 3D Best Ending 0:22:00 3DS USA Link Cave Story 3D to my knowledge is yet to be shown in a marathon outside of latin america, is a broken and very interesting run that revolves around exactly one glitch. Prinny cap (+2 minutes to estimate) Fight Ballos with Curly (+2 minutes to estimate) "Classic" mode vs "Story" mode - purely visual difference, would be for final file load of the game, no time difference the entirety of the marathon, though preferably not in the middle of the night (timezone CLT, UTC-4)
SupremeDirtSupremeDirt Cave Story 3D Reverse Boss Adventure 1:40:00 3DS USA Link Similar to my also submitted Best Ending run, this is a very broken run that takes advantage of a single, very large oversight in the game. Unlike best ending, where we simply obtain what is required to kill the final boss, we must kill every boss - a boss being defined as an enemy that the game either tracks as dead permanently or has a health bar - by reducing their health to 0, in the opposite of the intended order. The final two bosses are then completed as there is no way to return to the rest of the game after fighting them, and it shows off a very significant amount of the game and why CS3D is a good speedgame. identical to best ending submission except for the curly incentive Save or Kill the fish (if you really want to i guess) entirety of the event, though preferably not the middle of the night
wowie_alliewowie_allie Half-Life Scriptless 0:35:00 PC USA Link good length, great movement, virtually no downtime after the initial cutscenes, im fast sometimes not friday night, generally work early on saturday
warm_hamwarm_ham A Short Hike All Golden Feathers 0:12:00 PC USA Link A Short Hike is an emerging cult favorite in the indie scene that follows Claire, a teen bird, on her quest to reach the summit of Hawk Peak - more than anything, she really just wants some cell reception in this godforsaken neck of the woods. On her journey, she collects gold feathers that enable her to fly to new heights and dive at pummeling speeds. There are 20 of these gold feathers spread across Hawk Peak Provincial Park, and while we only need a few to make it to the summit, our mission in this category is to get ALL OF THEM. This allows us to see most of the quests in the game, show off some fun physics quirks with flying and swimming, and zoom real fast through the air, all in a succinct 10 minute package. preferably saturday or sunday morning eastern time
ZojalyxZojalyx Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor The Bright Lord 1:10:00 PC USA Link It is a super cool speedrun that i submitted to SGDQ so it should be here as well LUL anytime
EyeOf_NewtEyeOf_Newt Super Fancy Pants Adventure Any% NG+ 0:26:00 PC Link SFPA is always an entertaining run, and an amazing speedgame. NG+ Gets to feature some of the tightest movement, and most unique optimizations of any category for this game. If all works out, this would be a 3-way race between the current top 3 runners in this category. LukePlayz, Rillabel The best time to get us all in would be Saturday afternoon.
TalceraseTalcerase Jazzpunk Any% 0:20:00 PC Link Jazzpunk has always been a hit with MWSF, which probably raises more questions than I feel comfortable answering. Cart Choice (Red v Blue v Pink) Save v Crocify the Director Flavour Nexus (5 Minutes) Glitch Exhibition (25 minutes) Any Availability

polecatpolecat Dandara any% [Latest Patch] 0:38:00 PC Link Dandara stands out among metriodvania due to it's unique style of movement as it does away with traditional platforming and in it's place the player jumps from wall to wall. It makes for a really creative run with unique challenges, exciting movement and is just a plain blast to see. may 2nd 12am - 5am may 3rd 2pm - event end
polecatpolecat Dandara 100% [Latest Patch] 1:10:00 PC Link Dandara stands out among metriodvania due to it's unique style of movement as it does away with traditional platforming and in it's place the player jumps from wall to wall. It makes for a really creative run with unique challenges, exciting movement and is just a plain blast to see. may 2nd 12am - 5am may 3rd 2pm - event end
polecatpolecat dandara: trials of fear True Ending 1:11:00 PC Link Dandara stands out among metriodvania due to it's unique style of movement as it does away with traditional platforming and in it's place the player jumps from wall to wall. It makes for a really creative run with unique challenges, exciting movement and is just a plain blast to see. Trials of fear is a recent expansion to the game, it's extremely difficult, while I am making a lot of effort to practice it there is no guarantee that the run can be completed in estimate as the last boss is difficult and a troll, I will take extra safety measures. may 2nd 12am - 5am may 3rd 2pm - event end
EclipseMTEclipseMT Dubloon Any% 3:12:00 PC Link Even though the game is relatively new in terms of its lifecycle as a speedgame (it was released initially in 2010, and only in January of this year did I start running the game), I believe that Dubloon, with its unique battle system, makes the game interesting as a speedgame. Instead of turns, characters attack on a timer, which grants one action once it completes one cycle. Some enemy attacks are also defendable if the player successfully conducts certain actions (mouse over until projectiles disappear, shield crew with mouse, etc). (Estimate provided is my current PB plus a 15% safety net.) (There is a difficulty spike in the mid-end game that is very RNG dependent.) Bidwar for names of the four party members: - The hero (default Russell) - The pirate lady (default Anne) - The young one (default Riley) - The monkey (default Ricky) (All names have a 10 character limit) Friday morning is preferable. I am unavailable to run on Sunday.
EclipseMTEclipseMT Metroid (NES) 100% Deathless 1:02:00 GBA JPN Link (This game shall be a backup should Dubloon not get accepted.) Metroid 100% is an exciting category that explores most of the playable area of the game. The category also demonstrates certain glitches in certain areas of the map to save time and/or reduce backtracking. In addition, this run will be conducted on a port of the Famicom Disk System version, which significantly differs from the version released on the NES, most notably with a more dynamic RNG. The Famicom Disk System version, or any port thereof, has yet to be exhibited on any marathon. (This run will be played on the Famicom Mini GBA port of the game, emulated through mGBA. Savestate use is only for marathon safety, as there are certain points where softlocks or intensive backtracking may occur.) bidwar for profile name at file select? (8 char limit) Preferably on Friday mornings. Unavailable on Sunday.
EclipseMTEclipseMT ATV Offroad Fury Cross Country Enduro 1:40:00 PS2 USA Link (This game shall be a backup should Dubloon not get accepted.) It's a racing game, but this particular category is quite unique compared to other racing games. Rather than a defined pathway racers must follow, this category relies on gates scattered all across the environment. Racers must pass through these gates, which are set in a defined order, in order to progress through the course. The non-linear nature of these courses allows for interesting routing in some cases. (Run will be emulated on PCSX2) Preferably on Friday morning. Unavailable on Sunday.
no_ice_5no_ice_5 NFL Blitz Win a game 0:06:00 N64 USA Link NFL Blitz is high octane, arcade action at its finest. This port delivers fast paced gameplay and unpredictable moments to viewers. Not only does it cater to sports fans and non-sports fans alike, it brings nostalgic joy to gamers who just so happen to frequent arcades as a kid. To top it off, NFL Blitz has not been featured at any speedrunning marathon to date. Available May 1st through May 3rd, AM or PM.
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly Prince of Persia 2008 Epilogue Any% 0:47:00 PS3 USA Link Unless I've already done this run for you guys (I honestly don't remember) and you don't want to repeat, this run is perfect for marathons. Nice comfy length, action-paced and pretty, full of cool skips and glitches even an unfamiliar viewer can easily recognize, even has a built-in donation incentive. Costume choice Prince - Default, Sands of Time, Prototype Elika - Default, Jade (Beyond Good & Evil), Farah (Sands of Time), Prototype Early AM PST (after 12 midnight but please not starting after 6 am) OR Shortly before noon PST (9am-12 noon PST)
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly Mulaka Any% 0:32:00 PC USA Link This beautiful game, a celebration of the Tarahumara culture of Northern Mexico, plays like a modern Zelda. It's filled with skips and glitches, some developer-expected and some not. The massive bosses, awesome music, and action platforming gameplay are sure to please. Refer to previous submission
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly ICEY NG+ Judas Ending 0:18:00 PC USA Link ICEY is an effortlessly stylish sci-fi themed sidescrolling hack 'n slasher. It also has a "Stanley Parable" esque narrator, though beyond a donation choice for language he doesn't figure much into the runs. There's not really any skips (a few small things, but they're based on knowledge of the game rather than glitch tech) but the pace is pedal-to-the-metal from the off and the aesthetic makes this game a fun and easy watch. Category bid war Narrator language choice: English Chinese (original) Japanese Refer to previous submission
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly ICEY NG+ All Bosses 0:25:00 PC USA Link This is my personal favourite category for the game. We visit a couple optional areas and do some optional bosses. Refer to previous submission Refer to previous submission
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly Assassin's Creed Syndicate World War 1 0:32:00 PC USA Link This is a quasi~hidden "Easter Egg" campaign (it's there on the map from the start of memory sequence 6, though it never calls attention to itself). In 1916 London, we play as Lydia Frye, the granddaughter/grandniece of Syndicate's dual protagonists, carrying out missions for Winston Churchill as World War I rages. The run is movement- and technique-driven, its main appeal is as a "bite size" version of one of gaming's most popular franchises that generally doesn't lend itself well to showcase speedruns. Refer to previous submission
EmeraldAlyEmeraldAly Assassin's Creed Syndicate Jack The Ripper - Any% 1:00:00 PC USA Link This one's a little out there, I admit it, especially since my estimate is under my current PB. But I've been working on the game a lot lately and I think the estimate will be more than realistic by the time the event comes around. This is also a "bite size" AC campaign (bigger bite) that more nearly resembles Syndicate itself, complete with "assassination" missions and unique mechanics. Refer to previous submission
TalceraseTalcerase You Are Not A Banana Any% 0:15:00 PC Link Equally as ridiculous as Jazzpunk, but not necessarily as trippy, I shall assure everyone that you are, indeed, not a banana. You ARE bonus run (1 minute) Visit all exhibits (+1 minute) Ride Snail (+1 minute) Human v Banana (Will need to know results at least 10 minutes prior to run) Any Availability
FocusSightFocusSight Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) 0:20:00 X360 USA Link In tandem as a bidwar with Silver's Story, I believe that these two categories both show strengths in places where the other shows weaknesses. Though the Mission Select Glitch is central to both of them, the run leading up to both and the execution of the glitch varies wildly. Sonic's Story Any% is much more movement based with some wild glitches here and there but concentrates on the player being able to move efficiently for the most part. Silver's Story Any% is much like Silver No MSG%: A wild ride filled with difficult glitches and fantastical setups that lead to second after second saved. Yet, when it comes to MSG, the two stories swap over: Silver's setup is almost stupidly easily, while Sonic's requires lot of NPC manipulation and a whole lot of cautious text scrolling. As such, given both categories have estimates around 20 minutes, I feel making this an incentive to determine which category I run would work amazingly for the event and give a more unique offering than what submitting one category could give alone. Bidwar for Any% Story Selection (Sonic's Story, Silver's Story) All days, between 0800 and 2200. Prefer times in the morning but those times all work.

Derek_MKDerek_MK Bionicle: Tales of The Tohunga Any% 0:18:00 GBA USA Link Tales of the Tohunga is a 2001 GBA game developed by Saffire for the LEGO Bionicle toy line. It's full of rapid-fire shenanigans like infinite ammo, zipping through levels, clipping through walls, and hopping around every obstacle in our way in an effort to skip ~80% of the game. Available Saturday/Sunday 10am-10pm eastern time

SkylarSkylar ori and the will of the wisps Soggy% 0:30:00 PC USA Link Ori 2 is a recently release metroidvania with many skips. The problem with that is most of the any% skips are extremely hard making the runs inconsistent and hard for marathons. Soggy% is a consistent category that focuses on skill, movement, and combat, while keeping in most aspects of the game. I think Soggy% is a good showcase of ori 2 as well as a good meme run because who doesn't like being soggy? Playing a harder difficulty. Soggy% is played on easy so you can skip most of mills by sentry jumping off spikes. A harder difficulty could be challenging and fun. Though the estimate would change if that were to reach its incentive. Depending on the situation of corona virus my schedule may vary. Will be available on weekends at most any time. If school isn't reopened I'll be free any time of the week at most any time. I'm in the EST timezone so if you could account for that it would be nice.

RazorflameRazorflame Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Panel de Pon) VS COM EASY - V-HARD 2:15:00 GCN JPN Link This game takes all of the other Puzzle League games that I have submitted and puts all of them to shame. This game has some of the toughest computer opponents you can play against in any Puzzle League type game, as well as the hardest AI manipulation in any Puzzle League game to pull off. This game can also showcase what an incredible Puzzle League player can really do when they have to deal with opponents that can throw mystery chains and other constant garbage at them at all times and can really be entertaining to watch at higher levels of play. NOTE: The estimate given for this game is extremely generous because massive amount of RNG that is involved with this game. The incentive will only increase this RNG and make the game even more unpredictable because I would have to play and defeat every CPU opponent without the AI Manipulation, which could cause many of the later opponents to potentially take up to 20 minutes to defeat. Complete S-HARD and V-HARD without using the AI Manipulation to defeat them quickly. 11PM-7PM CDT daily.

NOTES: Giving myself some wiggle room in case I do not finish the run the first time. 1h 15 minutes should give me enough time to finish the run the second time I do it. 11AM-7PM CDT daily.

This game does not have any tricks but it has very technical movement that requires sometimes precise jumping to get to certain platforms and using the multiple checkpoints to our advantage.

StevetvonlineStevetvonline Viva Piñata Level 10 Garden 0:40:00 XboxOne USA Link Who doesn't like cute pinatas, helping others and Rare? This game is a classic that everyone loves and didn't know you could speedrun.

This category is a good representation of the game as you go to more sections than you would compared to any%. This run is also far more consistent than any%. Overall this game is very fun to watch and has plenty of places to explain movement and tricks I'm performing. There is also downtime to read donations. (Do not confuse this with the any% normal on the leaderboards, there are only the minimum amount of categories set up as of this being submitted. Though this is on the any% category, that is only because there is not a No OOB category yet.) Glitch Showcase? I could turn on debug and show some of the out of bounds glitches currently found if we reach an incentive. It wouldn't take too long but it could be fun. Tuesdays 5pm-9pm est Everyday 7am-9am est Every other day/time I should be able to do my run.

NimputsNimputs Sonic Adventure (DX) Sonic's Story 0:40:00 PC Link Sonic Adventure DX is a classic early 3D platformer. Sonic's story is the "main" category of the game, with a huge amount of tech, fast movement and many tricks skipping huge parts of levels any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
NimputsNimputs Sonic Adventure (DX) All Stories 2:00:00 PC Link Sonic Adventure DX is a classic early 3D platformer. All stories shows every story in the game: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Big, Gamma and Super Sonic. Sonic's story is the most complex one, but each of the stories have their own unique tech and cool strats to show off any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
NimputsNimputs Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing Any% 0:10:00 PC Link The worst video game ever made! This game has infinite backwards acceleration, no collision, a complete disregard for physics, a sketchy checkpoint system, and absolutely no concept of progression. Always good for a laugh! The any% run doesn't show much of the game, but I can do a bit of a exhibition afterwards. Submitted estimate includes exhibition, run itself should be done in under 3 minutes any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
NimputsNimputs Burnout Paradise Main Game 2:50:00 PC Link Burnout Paradise is an iconic racing game with a permanent open world where you race with high speed back and forth through the city completing events by dodging traffic, taking shortcuts and doing stunts. The key to getting a good time is good routing and consistent gameplay. This is the any% category, it obtains 5 licenses, the last of which being the Burnout License, which triggers the credits. As the game progresses, you get faster cars, the AI gets more aggressive and the requirements for stunt runs get more difficult, so there's lots of action for the long duration of the run any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
NimputsNimputs Burnout Paradise 1:30:00 PC Link The same as any% (see my other submission), but it obtains only the first 4 licenses instead of 5, making the run significantly shorter any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
NimputsNimputs Burnout Paradise 0:40:00 PC Link The same as any% (see my other submission), but it obtains only the first 3 licenses instead of 5, making the run significantly shorter. At this level of the game, all events are still very straight forward and should not pose much of a threat, but it's nonetheless a good snapshot of how the full any% run goes. any day 10pm to 3am CEST / 2pm to 7pm CST
SCXCRSCXCR Escape from Bug Island Any% 1:20:00 Wii USA Link I have no good answer for that. This is a bad survival horror game with terrible motion controls starring a character with as much personality as the draw distance blob that's always on screen. Lots of careful running to not step in traps and a couple fast strats to do things like kill giant gorillas from a hundred yards away and throw a giant worm off a cliff. Unofficial Death Cutscene% as watching the supporting cast die is one of the few joys I have in this game. As of now I'm available any time.
SCXCRSCXCR Streets of Fury EX Any% - Ruby Diamonds 0:30:00 PC USA Link Have you seen this digitized beauty? I mean have you seen this? Lots of digitized actors who may or may not know how to throw a punch beating each other up in increasingly ridiculous fashion. As of now I'm available whenever.
ChronosChronos Halo: Combat Evolved Legendary 1:30:00 PC USA Link Lots of cool stuff with the MCC version of the game. New tricks and things make things really cool! 6 PM - 1 AM on any day.
kawaiithulukawaiithulu Hero Must Die Again NG Any% True Ending 1:30:00 Switch USA Link A fast paced RPG speedrun with an interesting premise: you start at max level and power down over time. This run abuses this fact and completes the "True ending", which requires doing various quests over 3 playthroughs, in only an hour and a half. Also music by Kenji Ito for those who are into that. Name the Hero, Watch the Hero's funerals (maybe 10 extra minutes to the whole run) Any day, prefferably between 9 am and 2 am, but i am flexible.
kawaiithulukawaiithulu Giraffe and Annika any% 2:00:00 PC USA Link A cute, heartwarming platformer/adventure game/rythm game hybrid, featuring music from one of the composers of Guitaroo Man. Its just a fun and comfy pallete cleanser of a run that, even with skipping the story, maintains all its charm, and is completed in half the time of the speedrun achievment Choose rythm game difficulty for boss fights (easy, normal, or hard) Any day between 9am and 2am, although i am flexible
kawaiithulukawaiithulu Cute Knight Dragon Slayer any% 0:24:00 PC USA Link Short princess raiser sim/rpg run with nostalgia value for a lot of people. This is the only ending that requires killing a boss, and doing so quickly is not easy when rng can hold you hostage at any time. Name the Heroine, bonus any% run (doubt it will take even 2 minutes, you just sleep until you give up on life) Any day between 9am and 2am although i am flexible
kawaiithulukawaiithulu Witch Spring 3 Any% Good Ending 3:10:00 Android USA Link Seeing interesting runs on android is rare, and this one uses perfectly routed actions to be able to narrowly defeat the toughest bosses in the game with only the smallest margin of error. Theres extremely little rng so the route is 100% consistent and its very dramatic to see battles won where some turns see you reduced to single digit hp. any day between 9am and 2am but i am flexible
ÆtienneÆtienne Pokémon Sword/Shield Any% 4:25:00 Switch EUR Link Pokémon Sword (Pokémon Sword) is a turn-based RPG. It embodies a Pokémon trainer in the world of Galar. The objective is, as in each of the games in this license, to become a Pokémon Champion. The novelty of this 8th generation: the Dynamax. A possible evolution in combat, making a pokémon very strong (and very large) for 3 turns. Ironically, this transformation involves a very long animation and one of the main strategies of speedrun aims to never use it. Many strategies have been proven to complete the game. For my part, I would use the Candyfloss route, very safe in marathon. Bidwars: Trainer name (12 characters) Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Pokémon RBY Category Extensions Reverse Badge Order (Red/Blue) 0:40:00 GBA EUR Link Pokémon Red and Blue version, one of the most famous games in the world where you play as a trainer in his quest to become a Pokémon Champion. As in many turn-based RPGs, the speedrun in this game is filled with randomness. But thanks to the accumulated experience of speedrunners through the ages and the discovery of RNG Manipulation, Pokémon Red has become a rather stable and very competitive speedrun! This 1st generation of Pokémon is very glitchy. So much so that it is possible to beat all the gym leaders... in reverse order! To do this, we use a large amount of glitch, both impressive, fun and very interesting to explain. Bidwars : Charizard's name (10 characters) Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Pokémon Red/Blue Glitch Exhibition (Exhibition) 0:30:00 Link The first generation of Pokémon is very glitchy. Many awesome and very funny glitches are possible, but are also totally useless in speedrun! This little 30-minute show is an opportunity to show you how broken this game is! It is possible to reduce this duration to 5 minutes to make a donation goal. (I don't have a vidéo because I always did that on discord live to make some fun. The link below show LegendEater doing the exact same way that I'll use) VERY IMPORTANT : This exhibition will use the save from the Reverse Badge Acqusition run. It is therefore an extension of this run, impossible without starting from its save.
ÆtienneÆtienne Azure Striker Gunvolt New Game Any% 0:55:00 Switch EUR Link Azure Striker Gunvolt is a Megaman-like. But this game introduced new gameplay elements such as Gunvolt's ability to "tag" enemies and target many at once, adding an additional layer of complexity to the genre. The game uses an item-forging and equipping system, the former of which is instrumental in achieving the game's true ending. Additionally, Gunvolt has access to several super move-like skills called Offensive Skills, which allow him to perform powerful attacks or heal himself. In this category, you have to finish each level without any requierments. The most useful skill in this category (not counting the dash of course) is the "Prevasion". A dodge skill sacrificing part of the energy bar to avoid damage and knockback. Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Azure Striker Gunvolt New Game Good Ending 1:10:00 Switch EUR Link Azure Striker Gunvolt is a Megaman-like. But this game introduced new gameplay elements such as Gunvolt's ability to "tag" enemies and target many at once, adding an additional layer of complexity to the genre. The game uses an item-forging and equipping system, the former of which is instrumental in achieving the game's true ending. Additionally, Gunvolt has access to several super move-like skills called Offensive Skills, which allow him to perform powerful attacks or heal himself. In this category, we do the Good Ending. This add many side quests, a extra mission and the true last boss. Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Furi Speedrun Mode 0:42:00 PC EUR Link Furi is a game mixing action and shoot 'em up. The action range is composed of a dodge, a parry and two types of attacks. The game does not offer progression trees, abilities, or unlocking weapons. It requires only skills. We play Raider, a mysterious warrior who tries to escape from a gigantic prison held by 9 guards. It is a boss rush, boss battles interspersed with dialogue. But for our enjoyment, the game has a very well designed speedrun mode. I play this game on PC, keyboard and mouse. Bid wars: Voice language. What will be the language used for the voices during the run? - Japanese - English - French Donation incentive : Redo the fight against the Edge... blindfolded. (4 minutes) Throughout the marathon
TBA_aroTBA_aro Gunman Clive Any% Easy 0:22:00 PC USA Link This is a simple run and gun platformer for the PC and is very short and simple. Not much can be said in the description but I will say this. This game is very, very hard. May 2-3 12-5 PM CDT
ÆtienneÆtienne Omensight Any% 1:30:00 PC EUR Link Omensight is a 3D adventure game where we embody "the Harbinger", a light entity capable of going back in time. Thus, we relive the same day in a loop in order to prevent Voden, the avatar of the Void, from destroying the world. The Omensight speedrun requires a number of battles in enemy-filled rooms as well as against bosses. But also to master many skips and OOB made possible via several glitchs present in the game. The triple jump, a central glitch in all skips, makes this run extremely dense and varied, between combat optimization, bosses, and OOB setup. A donation goal can be placed to have the Low% category instead, changing nothing in the estimate. Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Omensight Glitchless 1:50:00 PC EUR Link Omensight is a 3D adventure game where we embody "the Harbinger", a light entity capable of going back in time. Thus, we relive the same day in a loop in order to prevent Voden, the avatar of the Void, from destroying the world. The Omensight speedrun requires a number of battles in enemy-filled rooms as well as against bosses. The final Edition of the game has patched all the glitch used in Any%. Therefore, this is the version used for this run: the Glitchless. Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Omensight All Memories 2:00:00 PC EUR Link Omensight is a 3D adventure game where we embody "the Harbinger", a light entity capable of going back in time. Thus, we relive the same day in a loop in order to prevent Voden, the avatar of the Void, from destroying the world. The Omensight speedrun requires a number of battles in enemy-filled rooms as well as against bosses. The final Edition of the game has patched all the glitch used in Any%. This version is the one currently used for this category where you must find the 24 memories scattered in the different timelines of the game. The video below was made with the Definition Edition, that is to say without glitch. However, I successfully completed this category using version 1.02 of the game, saving a lot of time via skips. Donation goal : New routing via v1.02 (save many minutes) Doing this catégorie with the version use in Any% to skips many fights in the game. Throughout the marathon.
ÆtienneÆtienne Omensight True ending 3:00:00 PC EUR Link Omensight is a 3D adventure game where we embody "the Harbinger", a light entity capable of going back in time. Thus, we relive the same day in a loop in order to prevent Voden, the avatar of the Void, from destroying the world. The Omensight speedrun requires a number of battles in enemy-filled rooms as well as against bosses. In this category, you have to accomplish the real end of the game by discovering the 32 clues scattered throughout the game's different timelines and then defeating the last boss. This allows you to go back in time the day before the start of the game, to face the true last boss. Throughout the marathon.
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Dragons/Orbs/Eggs 0:52:00 PS4Pro USA Link Spyro 80 Dragons is one of the most exciting runs the game has to offer. Featuring glitches that offer engaging visuals and totally reinvent the routing of the game by glitching Spyro into a developer's tool located out of bounds, 80 Dragons has been well received by viewers at other marathons. The goal is to collect all of the game's 80 dragons trapped in crystal. The category shows off more of the game than any% in addition to its fun glitches and hitbox exploits. I am the current WR holder. Bonus any%: Because both any% and 80 Dragons run on v1.0 of Spyro, I could do an extra any% run that will show the pieces of the game (like the final boss) not shown in 80 Dragons. I am the current WR holder in any% at about 8 minutes, but an estimate of 11 minutes or so would be safer. Any day May 1-3, any time
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Spyro the Dragon 1:00:00 PS4Pro USA Link The NBS (No Balloonist Skip) variant of Spyro any% shows off a large majority of the game by designating itself as "no major glitches." The goal of the run is to defeat the final boss, Gnasty Gnorc, which requires collecting 50 dragons, 5 dragon eggs, and 6000 gems. This Spyro category also features flight levels, for which I have held multiple WRs and remain competitive into the fractions of a second. It's the most commonly watched of the Spyro 1 runs. Customize Spyro: Spyro can be customized to add sunglasses or change him to a variety of colors and skins, which could create a bid war. In addition to his retro skin (to make him look like PS1 Spyro), he can be black, blue, green, pink, purple, red, and yellow. Any day May 1-3, any time
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Console & Time Trials) Spyro the Dragon 0:12:00 PS4Pro USA Link The Any% category for Spyro is a great way to feature Spyro defeating the final boss in a very short amount of time. Taking just 10 minutes or less, Any% makes use of a very visually interesting glitch, as well as hitbox exploits, to skip 94% of the game. The glitch forces Spyro out of bounds to reach a dev tool that can skip him into the final world without fulfilling the game's 6000 gem requirement. It's a fast-paced and exciting run. I'm currently the WR holder. Any day May 1-3, any time
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook The Last Guardian Any% 3:35:00 PS4 USA Link The Last Guardian Any% is a unique run that requires constant management of a lovable AI chicken dog companion to solve puzzles while performing skips and glitches and optimized movement. Because any% does not feature sequence-breaking skips, viewers are treated to the entire TLG story: maximum joy in minimum time. This is a great run for graveyard slots too, as people love to relax with Trico. I'm currently the 2nd place holder. Play the cutscenes. Every marathon I've run this at has had chat get really sad when they find out timing ends before the end of the story. They always want to find out the answer to the most important question: does everyone's favorite chicken dog make it? It will add 15 minutes. Any day May 1-3, any time
SableDragonRookSableDragonRook Inside All Deaths 1:20:00 PS4 USA Link Turning the standard any% run on its head, Inside All Deaths% still completes the game as fast as possible, but with an interesting catch: trigger each of the game's unique death animations once. From being captured by creepy water girls to being walloped by a massive soundwave, this category adds some spice and uniqueness to the normal any% routing, all while presenting an atmospheric and haunting game essentially in its entirety. I am currently the 2nd place holder of this category. Play to the end. Because the story of Inside is so...unique, we could add another ten minutes to finish the game instead of ending the run (timer) before the story ends. Any day May 1-3, any time
PetresIncPetresInc Super Monkey Ball Deluxe in SMB2 Story Mode 0:30:00 Wii USA Link SMBDX in SMB@ is a fresh new port of the coolest of the original three monkey ball games! A race between four high level speedrunners from all sides of monkey ball is sure to be very exciting! Alist, Helix, TheLostLlama May 1st - May 3rd
PetresIncPetresInc Celeste Any% 0:35:00 PC Link Celeste is a game made for speedrunning, making the speed and consistency at a high level a showcase like no other! I will be racing against FellTheKerl, a player only 6 seconds faster than my pb. This race promises to be very exciting and close! (Fell's submission has commentary from the both of us as well.) Fell May 1st - May 3rd
PappyPappy Claw Any% 0:55:00 PC USA Link A hidden gem from the 90s. If you've never seen this game before, or if you have but never saw a speedrun, prepare to be amazed. Beautiful graphics that aged well, solid soundtrack and unforgettable quotes. It was one of the first games that featured speedruns back in the late 90s, and now 23 years later the any% run is nothing to sneeze at: 2D platforming at its best with fast-paced action, impressive tricks and minimal RNG. Claw is already known for its hard difficulty, and the speedrun doesn't make things any easier, even if i sometimes make it look easy. Bid war for choice of Soundtrack (in-game music has to be turned off for tricks so we already play the soundtrack externally. we can use other songs as seen in the record video) Original Claw Soundtrack 8-bit Claw Soundtrack Pentakill Soundtrack Conker's Bad Fur Day Soundtrack Paper Mario TTYD Soundtrack Usually available at any time, but availability might change depending on how long Coronavirus keeps us confined.

lenameklenamek Godzilla (2014) God of Destruction Any% 0:30:00 PS4 EUR Link The game is pretty rare and not often seen. Prices on ebay can be quite expensive. The run involves destroying buildings (but not that much in order to be fast) and fighting other Kaijus (but the less we meet them, better would be the final time). Choose voice language (English or japanese) Choose subtitle language (German, French, Spanish, Italian or English) I should be available all the weekend (May 1st is a holiday here). As I am in France, night time in the US could be day time here... so it should be no problem if my run is scheduled at 3 or 4 AM.
lenameklenamek Stories: The Path of Destinies Any% 1:45:00 PC Link A pretty cool game with a beautiful art direction and a wonderful storytelling. The fights are fast paced and cool to watch. Fastest road VS Safest road (at some point in the game, near the end, the player can choose between two levels. One is the fastest and optimal, the other is a little bit safer... and viewers tends to like this one more as that moment of the game is really dark. In terms of estimate, no need to change, the safest road is 1 or 2 min longer if well executed) Should be available during all the weekend.

lenameklenamek The Inner Darkness Any% 0:13:00 PC Link Little indie platformer where you have to switch between Dark World and Light World to avoid obstacles and create new platforms. Maybe not the most impressive platformers but a pretty fun little game. I should be available during all the weekend.

DiamondcrafterADiamondcrafterA New Super Mario Bros. Wii Randomizer Any% 0:45:00 Wii USA Link New Super Mario Bros. Wii now has a randomizer! What it does is that it randomizes the levels with a secret exit with other secret exit levels, and normal levels with other normal levels. This makes it so that there is no set route which causes me to have to play through the levels with potentially different powerups than normal which leads to a lot of improvisation. There are 3 levels we dont randomize, however. 2-Castle and 8-Castle have hardcoded properties that break the game if they are put elsewhere. Keeping 8-Castle in its respictive spot also creates a solidified end point. The other level we dont randomize is 3-5 because the only way to access the secret exit in that level is to hit the red switch all the way in world 3, which means we cant get the secret exit for it in any% so we would lose large amounts of time if we got it in a run. I may or may not choose to leave out the autoscrollers that dont give me a propeller. Might leave that to a bidwar. Bidwar for 5-2 or 5-3. As the levels are randomized it makes no difference to me. If neither is accepted/gets bid for ill go with my gut and if its bad ill force 2 deaths (for the vine cycles) and check the other level, which hopefully will be quicker. If one option of the bidwar wins however i will stick to it no matter what level it is. Another option for a bidwar is including all autoscrollers or taking the ones that could be a huge timeloss if i get them back-to-back. Id say that if the autoscrollers got taken out the estimate could be lowered to 40 mins. Any reasonable time (so like not after 1am or anything, I can wake up early and do fine but later is worse)

EpicCrossoverEpicCrossover Go Vacation Any% 2:15:00 WiiU USA Link It would be cool to see a game that doesn’t usually get much attention as a major game, but it still has a supportive community with at least a few people still running it.

ripWSBripWSB Black The Fall Any% 0:50:00 PS4 Link Sort of the adopted child that lives in the basement of these types of puzzle games. Think Limbo/Inside but set in a slightly different and more communism heavy dystopia. BtF is a puzzle platformer of a machinist trying to escape an oppressive regime. Run has a few skips, some minor clips, and (hopefully) quick puzzle solutions. Plus there's a robot buddy that helps out for the last half of the run. May 1 : 1700-2400 CST May 2 : 0600-2400 CST May 3 : 0600-2000 CST
ShmumblerShmumbler Silent Hill: Homecoming Any% NG+ 0:40:00 XboxOne USA Link Homecoming is filled to the brim with flashy clips that send Alex through walls, floors, and ceilings, skipping roughly 2/3 of the game in his quest to save his (maybe dead?) brother. Costumes (Classic, Young Alex, ER Alex, Big Rig Alex, Order Soldier Alex, Bogeyman Alex, Invisible): No extra time needed. Ending (UFO, Drowning, Bogeyman): No extra time needed. May 1-3, any time
ShmumblerShmumbler Silent Hill: Homecoming All Bosses NG+ 1:15:00 XboxOne USA Link The All Bosses NG+ category includes most of the same content as Any%, but expands the front half to include 2 more bosses, several clips unlike anything in Any%, and an OoB section where Alex must blindly navigate a ladder maze. Costume (Classic, Young Alex, ER Alex, Big Rig Alex, Order Soldier Alex, Bogeyman Alex, Invisible Alex): No extra time needed. Ending (UFO, Drowning, Bogeyman): No extra time needed. May 1-3, any time
Professor_PalmerProfessor_Palmer Orangeblood Any% 2:00:00 PC USA Link The OST is fire. The animation is gorgeous. Game is super unique, super RNG and risk/reward, every run is different due to loot being entirely procedural/random. Do the god-tier post game bosses from a loaded save file : Chef, Green Yakuza, Homerun Sempai, Dogcopter. Currently available any time.
PetePlaysTheGamesPetePlaysTheGames Lenna's Inception Sacrifice Ending 1:00:00 PC USA Link Fun game that's fairly unknown, has a lot of similarities to LTTP Randos and concepts like that. Lots of replayability and a decent storyline (skipped in this run). I'm new to marathons, so hopefully I am providing enough information on this page. The game has three endings, Sacrifice is the middle of the road for this game (similar to all bosses) but we could have an incentive to run Perfect Ending, which does take a bit longer. I would add maybe 45 minutes to an hour on top of estimate, as that run vastly differs in the latter half. We can have bidwars for character names, or even seed names. The game's set up so now any runs can be submitted to SRC, which is pretty nice! As far as amounts go, I have no clue. Perfect Ending takes awhile and is special so I'd like to see that goal up a little bit. I can basically be free whenever, especially with the current state of everything happening. I'm in North Dakota and would prefer to not do a run overnight as I'll most likely be sleeping. After 10am and before 1am.
CuemedgeCuemedge Kung Zhu All Rescues 0:27:00 3DS USA Link Because its an interesting run with several strats that don't break the game, but rather reshape how you think of playing this stupid platformer based on the line of toys from the mid 2010's. Oh and this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yA8l2Tvb82M&t=7s N/A nope Friday: 1pm-12am Saturday: 5am-12am Sunday: 6am-12am

baileyp75baileyp75 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Any% 2:30:00 Wii Link This run has some extremely interesting memory manipulation and movement tech. This run has changed a ton in the past year, and i’d like to showcase the discoveries the community has found over the last year. Fighting demise with the title screen open this would cause the run to be invalid. I would have to delete my run files and set new ones for this using the wii home menu. So for this I would beat demise normally and then do this fight after id the incentive is met. On weekdays i wouldnt be able to do the run before 5:30 pm mst however on weekends I should be free all day.

aaron2u2aaron2u2 The Magic of Scheherazade Any% 1:10:00 NES USA Link TMoS is a hybrid action/adventure and RPG where, in the speedrun, we do everything we can to avoid the RPG elements and simply rush through as quickly as possible. It was featured in a bonus GDQ run in 2013 by Darkwing Duck. In the last two years, a number of advancements in the speedrun have been found, including RNG manipulation, better routing, and most recently a large skip found in the last chapter which shaves over 4 minutes off of the run. Scheherazade's setting is unique for the time... and in general, there are very few games set in a Middle-Eastern setting that embrace the cultural aspects. I have recently set the WR for any% and am very good at explaining the various mechanics and tech. File name (4 letters max) Available Friday after 7 PM EST until Saturday at noon (yes, this means overnight). Available Saturday after 10 PM EST until Sunday at noon. I work overnight and am attuned to that sort of sleep schedule, but am slightly flexible.

nesnes Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll Full Marathon 0:29:00 WiiU USA Link this is a slightly shorter speedrun mode of step and roll and its pretty fun id say. theres been nothing really like it in the monkey ball franchise since. you keep levels between stages. thats it i guess. you do worlds 1-6 back to back as fast as possible and its pretty fun. the stages are the same so the same submission video should be fine, right? monkey choice maybe? also maybe do the 7th world (adds 8-10 minutes) afternoon to mid-late evening
