Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, events, an NES classic -- this week has been huge for speedruns. Let's check it out.
11 months ago, Angrylanks took a long-standing world record from DK28 in the Nintendo classic, Contra. DK's time of 9:53.834 has stood for 3 years, and Angrylanks only inched forward with a time 0.034 seconds faster -- 9:53:8. Well, Angrylanks has unparalleled dedication, and he pushed that 9:53 lower and lower over these 11 months.
Finally, he broke through that barrier. After a tough and ongoing battle, Lanks achieved an incredible 9:52.850. If you don't know Angrylanks, we highly recommend you check out his twitch channel. Not only is he incredibly good at any game he puts his mind to, he's also a great drummer and an all around great guy.
