How many times do you think this guy played and finished the game before being able to do this?

Like 50 times?

Fluttershy7728d ago

I can do that. Is not that hard. It really isn't. Is just a matter of patience for the most part. He's not using even the most basic exploits, glitches, shortcuts to make the game faster... Ok I get it, is no damage, but still you are calling it a speed run, is ridiculous.

FullmetalRoyale28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Well I personally think a speed run shouldn't be done using exploits and cheats. I don't see how that is remotely impressive. This *no damage run ismore impressive than any glitching through the world speed runs.

“Is not that hard.”

If you can do it, then what are you waiting for? You’ll only be the second person in history to ever accomplish it. I’m looking forward to your run.

bluefox75528d ago

Probably more than that, these guys do it basically full time.

Fluttershy7728d ago

@FullmetalRoyale Well i don't know about that... (there are no glitches categories in any case) But I can tell you that the community is the one that make the rules, and most glitches are allowed in Dark Souls speedruns.
And this I know: some of them are insanely hard to execute.
Like I said I know that this is No Damage, but the whole point of the article is that this is ALSO a Speed run... I'm just wondering how can you call it that way when you are not doing the most basic stuff a Dark Souls speed run does to save time?

Christopher28d ago

There are glitch and no-glitch speedruns. There exist categories of speedruns to account for most of this stuff. The only question in some games is "what is a glitch and what isn't". Just like how there are Any%, all bosses, and 100% speedruns. But, I'm certain you "know this".

Because you take damage with some skips and exploits. And this is a 0 damage run.

Christopher28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Way more than that. Likely over 2k hours in the game alone if not close to that.

Speedrunners tend to spend thousands of hours in the primary games/series they play.

YodaCracker28d ago

Waaay more than 50, if I had to guess. Hundreds of times?

I don't know if I should applaud the man, or pity him.

Christopher28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

If he loves doing it, why pity him?

TheRealTedCruz28d ago

Oh. It wasn't meant as a negative thing. It's aimed at the sheer amount of time something like this had to have taken.

Toiletsteak28d ago

Yeah well I got hit thousands of times and died alot and it also took me 53 hours to complete the game... beat that!

l33t_haxx0r28d ago

hang on, ive seen a few 0 damage runs on this game he is not the worlds first?? am I missing something?

Christopher28d ago

"All bosses" is the difference, IIRC. The others skipped some.

luckytrouble28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Look up The Happy Hob. He has an all bosses no hit run from over a year ago and is the most popular no hit Soulsborne streamer. The title alone tells me this author did no real research or is trying to hang off the word "speedrun".

I would also look up his god run. He is waaaaaay too good at conquering Soulsborne games.

Greg280128d ago

The other ones are "0 hit runs".
This a 0 damage run.
The discription from the youtube video explains it well.

Christopher28d ago

Ah, yeah. Even The Happy Hob takes damage from environment.
