Tool-Assisted Speedruns Out of Context

Posted on December 15th, 2021 by Hitstun

In only one week, @TASNoContext speedran becoming my new favorite Twitter account. TASVideos publisher EZGames69 posts short clips of old games freaking out when they receive frame-perfect sequences of gamepad input.

Magnetro – Marvel vs Capcom 2 – Ataraxia Combo Video

Posted on January 30th, 2019 by Hitstun

Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 brought us a Sonic 1 run by Dr. Fatbody, a highly entertaining player with the speed and precision of a yung Wumbo. He tries risky tricks that backfire sometimes and will goof off a little for style. When everything works, he’s really fast! He reminds me of my own playaround […]
