A time attack of Megaman X and Megaman X2, played simultaneously on one controller by one person. (Torrent download link provided on page)

I admire the skill at the same time that I suppress the urge to cry out "but what the hell for?!" I guess, if it causes no harm, it's ok in Canada.

I want to see a time attack of Megaman 1. Now that was a hard-ass game.

Well... OK.

Thanks! That's some serious service. I wonder what the fasted non-tool-assisted time is.

That's hardcore.

pfft.

Now this is a hard game.

Ha! That's funny. While searching for G&G reference material I found this.

D'oh! I think I just lost the game.

So, does this prove that both games were really easy, or that they're both essentially the same game?

For maximum deliciousness this needs the Nickelback dual-song mix as a soundtrack.

I was just about to mention Nickelback.

When I feel like watching someone else play a video game, I usually just watch Star Wars.

Thanks for posting this. I don't keep up on assisted time attack runs because they are often very boring to me... but the unique twist on this one makes it very entertaining. It also makes me wonder what other games might be eligible for this treatment, and how great a disparity you might introduce between game controls without making it either impossible or trivial. I'm glad there are other people to do this stuff so I don't have to.

Since this isn't in the speed demo archives... Shadow of the Colossus time attacks.

I love how he waits to kill the final boss on the left until it syncs up with the explosions on the right.

And Bionic Commando isn't that hard, man! My brother and I beat that game like 100 times when we were kids. You just have to memorize every. single. move.

Now, Ninja Gaiden II...

Gah. How are you guys getting it to play? MPC with ffdshow installed chokes on the video.
