Metroid's Tool Assisted Speedruns
Below you will find links to pretty much all of the current runs available for the Metroid games which have
been played on an Emulator on a PC or
MAC and that have been created using tools such as save-states, re-recording and/or slow-motion facilities to
create a run that by human standards are virtually near impossible to replicate without stupidly insane
As such most creators of these movies are doing so to shock the player with a display of ultra-fast almost
machine like tricks and showmanship. These runs AREN'T considered for World Records as they aren't played
using a genuine copy of the game (i.e. cartridge or disc) on a console, but that doesn't stop the creators of
these Tool Assisted runs from enjoying what they do or from fans enjoying what's on show.
Whatever your opinions are on such runs, I for one weclome them with open
arms as they should be appreciated for what they are... Smooth displays of almost inhuman skills. They might
not be as endearing and thus satisfying as console-based speedruns, but that doesn't detract away from the amount
of time, effort and dedication that has gone into each TAS (Tool Assisted Speedrun).
Each run is hosted directly on Samus.co.uk's own server as DivX .avi, so all you need to do is right-click, Save
Target As and enjoy...
