I am not a big fan of these runs, if he beat the whoooooole thing in 18 minutes (impossible I know) I'm interested but glitch runs just don't do it for me. I love skill based or running through games normally as fast as they can. Like during this past event I caught myself watching an hour of a Quake 100% speed run and was fascinated, or like the Funkdoc run of the original castlevania and just beat the shit out of it.

Using glitches to your advantage against AI I'm cool with, but a glitch to skip to the end doesn't really interest me.

That's why there are multiple different kinds of runs. This run is just the fastest.

You turn on the system, start the game and the fastest way you can beat the game (that we know of) is this run.

If only Giant Bomb had this attitude towards Monster Hunter.

And honestly, I would argue it's actually easier than both those titles. It's far, far less frustrating and easier to get into. The only hard part of that game is understanding a monster's AI and patterns.

Hell, it's far more satisfying as well. When you beat a monster it's because you have not just outsmarted it, but also out-maneuvered it. It has very little of the random traps and other bullshit you find in Dark Souls and Spelunky.

Other than the weighty combat mechanics, there's nothing really in common with these two games and I've never understood why people continue to compare them to each other. It is possible to love one and not the other.

I didn't really think of Papers, Please as a #1 kind of game, but after reading Patrick's reasoning it's hard to disagree with him.

For $130 this is just smart. I will probably consider buying one.

This is going to sadly overshadow the disgusting officiating last night. The Lakers had 50 free throws and the Warriors had 16 in a 2 point game. Shit like that makes me not want to watch the NBA.

Sim City probably checks in every certain number of in game hours, to get information from your region So when you use cheetah speed it checks in x*3 seconds as opposed to lama speed which only checks in every x*2 seconds. This is just my guess.

That's pretty much correct. The server syncs to your game every game day, and on cheetah speed on the game day goes faster hence having to sync more.
