LADX Rando Races

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX now has a randomizer! At the time of this post, the randomizer is in alpha. LADX speedrunners who know all the tricks may be able to work around this, but casual players can encounter unbeatable seeds. You never know where a door might lead, how you'll use it to your advantage, or how you might have to work around it! See what items you'll discover within the randomized chests. Where you end up, with whatever resources you have, can only be overcome using in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Link's Awakening universe matched with your skill and wit. Though it may sound overwhelming to someone who is new to Link's Awakening, the randomizer includes a very useful tool to help you along your way. You can mark the items you've found and entranc...

ZFG Gets OoT 100% WR With New Route!

Timed at 4:11:08, Zfg just improved his Ocarina of Time 100% world record with the new category route! There was a huge build up of anticipation for this run. We watched as Zfg pieced together old and new route ideas, unsure if it could even result in a time save, or if it was simply wasted efforts. We started off knowing it could be slower, but as it was timed we found the new route to be at least 1 minute faster. Within 24 hours, that time save jumped to 2 minutes. Zfg's not sure what the God-run might look like, but with a quick estimate he stated it might be around 4:07:xx. So what changed? So much, and I'm sure nobody can explain it in as great of detail as Zfg himself! One of the first notable changes is the RBA inside the windmill before getting the song of storms. Doing this all...

BBF_ Improves Boshy WR! 30:43

What a run! BBF_ has held world record in Boshy's main category for quite some time now, but his name just got etched deeper into the leaderboard with an amazing time of 30:43. Previously holding the WR at 31:02. The main category of I Wanna Be The Boshy is Any% (No WW, Dark Boshy Only) with 53 people on the leaderboard. Witwix still holds second place from his 2014 run with a time of 32:24, leaving 31 now completely vacant of any runner's personal best. There's always a special feeling when seeing someone achieve the greatest time ever, but this run was a little something extra. It started off on a great pace with minor ups and downs but as he got further into the run, it became a rollercoaster of nerves. His World 10 split was 17.9 seconds ahead which is absolutely insane. Missing...
