Recently, speed runs of classic games have achieved widespread attention. Gamers can now complete Mario 64 in under seven minutes by using bugs in the game's code that allow players to skip large portions of the game. Marvin Schuyler, who has been playing Banjo-Kazooie since its release in 1998 has set a new record not only for the game, but for any speed run of any game.
Using a glitch technique which involves jumping backwards, then entering a sequence of button presses before the character lands, Marvin was able to open a wormhole in his living room. As not much is understood about the complex physics that take place while traveling through these tears in the space-time continuum, scientists from universities and government agencies all over the world have taken notice.
Marvin, who disappeared the day before the speedrun was completed, could not be reached for comment. - James "Nate" Macbeth
