@Emblem There are different categories of speedruns. Sequence breaking (e.g. Using glitches and "holes" in the code to skip parts of the game) is a legit part of a speedrun unless stated otherwise. Who makes these rules? The guys that actually spend years on a given game looking for ways to complete it faster (I am not one of them, alas). I'm a bit irritated that people who are not part of the speedrunning crowd tend to dismiss these incredible feats as "cheating" (saw it recently on the gamefaqs boards with the Pikmin 3 100% 10day run). This run is literally the result of decades of community work, searching for glitches, evaluating their employability, and, not least, mastering the mechanisms of the game. If it helps, I'm pretty sure the guy would beat all of us (maybe not greenalink, who I believe is a capable runner himself) in a no sequence breaking run by hours, in all probability.
Please excuse me if that sounded a bit harsh, but it's a pet peeve of mine...
