Just checked and a few people have already thrown down runs for Dread difficulty in 0%. I'm surprised that one has entries but Any% doesn't since that would surely be easier than a 0% run or at least on par to it.

That or maybe 0% means you only need to go to the most crucial areas and avoid as much combat as possible which is safer to pull off in a mode where you die in one hit. I also suspect that as people are learning routes in that difficulty they'll just start with the simplest and quickest so that time isn't wasted collecting an item on a run that ends in death.

I don't think I've ever heard of a game patching out exploits used for speed running; unless the exploits were also harming regular players if people could accidentally trigger them and such. What ones got patched out?

Also in case you missed the alert I put something about Dread in the game demake thread in General Gaming you might find interesting. Wink

Yeah they did with dread. there was a glitch that caused you to be invincible. there were speedrun for it too called Suitless runs. Patch 1.0.3 killed that glitch and destroyed an entire speedrun category

@Monocle, have you seen this video that breaks down the animation of Metroid Dread?




There was also this very recent video made by DidYouKnowGaming? that shares a lot of secrets from the Metroid Prime developers that haven't been shared before:



I'm not sure whether to watch this one at some point or if it'll go over my head from not having played the game or really knowing anything about it. Hmm

Oof. When was the last time you had a day off?

I'm hoping I can watch the videos tomorrow, or at least the Dread one. Not sure if it's worth me watching the Prime one since I know nothing about the game.

Just came across this tweet where someone is making a Metroid N64 game:


I never knew the N64 didn't get a Metroid game. Would that make it one of the only pre-established Nintendo IP's to not get an entry on that system? Hmm
