Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2013 - OUT NOW

Would you like to know all the latest record breakings in the video games world? Would you like to laugh at people doing weird and insane vg-related stuff? But most important, would you like to have a semi-complete guide to all the highest scores of the most challenging games in order to try beat them? Ok, so you may be interested in the brand new Guinness World Record Gamer’s Edition that is out now.

We didn’t check it yet, but usually is a pretty good piece of reading, so if you want to get it, try on Amazon.

The book has also a (weird) trailer, so check it out.

    Twin Galaxies is a joke. A speedrunner from http://www.speedrunslive.com beat 17 Doom 64 Twin Galaxies records in one sitting, and finished by taking all 32 in subsequent weeks. Not only was one of the times for the ILs fake (even with cheats nobody could get within a minute of the time), it had a mislabeled title (such a stage doesn’t exist in Doom 64).

    For real speedrunning check out http://www.speeddemosarchive.com and http://www.speedrunslive.com. While speeddemosarchive isn’t a leaderboard and many of the runs are obsoleted, the verification process is very strict and sound, unlike the loose and careless approach of Twin Galaxies. The only reason Twin Galaxies receives any recognition from Guiness is because they are corporate; meanwhile, speeddemosarchive raised $450,000 for the American Cancer Society in their yearly marathon last January.
