Amazing Record For Metroid Prime Completion

#1

Post by Metal Mario » Sun May 04, 2003 4:31 pm

*Source: Planet Gamecube

Twin Galaxies, the organization responsible for recording and maintaining world records in gaming, has announced their newest world record holder. Henru Wang from Berkeley, California has beaten Metroid Prime in just 1 hour and 46 minutes.

Wang accomplished this feat through a combination of speedy movement, strategic use of the Morph Ball and bombs for transportation, and knowledge of which upgrades can be skipped or obtained out of order. He plans to continue improving his time, but the current milestone is enough to earn his place in the record books.

Click here for an interview with Wang and more information about the record-setting run.

Look at the very top of the page, the blue bar.

That enough should tell you that these fools are grammatically incapable.

Wang needs to get a life and realize that no one cares about his "record."

I mean, seriously. I didn't even know it was possible to WALK over all the space you have to cover in the game in less than two hours.

What's so sad about it, as long as he's happy doing what he's doing? Our culture places a lot of emphasis on "getting out" and the misguided belief that you don't have a life if you don't party like it's 2099. Speaking for myself, I'm a reclusive introvert who has always preffered to be left to my own devices. I don't really like socializing, and I don't usually leave the comforts of my own house unless I have to. And that doesn't mean that I lie around all day depressed and moping. It's because everything I love most can be found right at my fingertips at home. Far from being housebound and dreaming of getting out, I dream of going home whenever I'm somewhere else. This guy sounds like he's enjoying himself, so why should he drag himself out on some social binge?

Power to the introverts!

Who can tell? He's as mad as a rabid dog. The best thing to do is ignore him. Either that or smile and nod and hope he doesn't start foaming at the mouth.

I think it's an interesting idea, but in this particular case it could be that he spent so much time playing Metroid Prime that he didn't get anything productive done. But I dunno, the game hasn't been out that long, so maybe he was just a good gamer and didn't need to play it all day and night.
