    Here it is lads. Something you didn't even know you wanted. The birth of the SOCOM 1 speed run. Coming it at 1:24 [1:18 in game], I set the bar for Death at Sea. Who will take the World Record from me?



    I'll start another thread to definitively list the leaders of each level as they come in. Each submission must be in video format, front to back footage of the run with no edits, and please include splits. Speaking of splits - Start your split from the moment you can move, and end the split the moment the screen fades to black. See the above video for reference.

    Categories
    • Difficulty
    • Glitched / Glitchless
    • 100% / Any % (All objectives or not)
    • Single Level / Single Segment (Each level timed individually vs. playing the entire game front to back)
    Let's keep this thread to discuss SOCOM 1 speedrunning and submissions. If it's necessitated, we can start threads for the other games when submissions roll in / when the discussion is ripe. Let's kick this shit off with a bang.

    Just want to let everyone know, I am in the process of developing a spreadsheet that eventually may go on Google Docs or something for everyone's perusal. It will include times, recordholder names, and links to video evidence. Please inform me of any new records, and I will add them.

    Could you consider doing a 100% mission accomplished run?

    Anyone is free to do whatever kind of run they please, really. I personally, if I ever get the capcard and start doing this, would focus on single-level runs based on speed alone, rather than all objectives, but maybe branch out later on.

    Would that include both primary and secondary objectives AND speed or just 100%?

    Just completing mission as fast as possible will probably be around for awhile. Then as stated above, We'd move on to fastest completion with all obj's complete

    Just 100%. I couldn't care less about speed. More execution in perfection. Shit is not easy x.x

    hrm then maybe a "speedrun" isn't for you and a speedrun thread isn't where you're going to find what you're looking for

    I'm submitting SOCOM to www.speedrun.com so we don't have to rely on a thread on TRS for relevant data.

    Wow a lot has happened since the last time I posted here.

    We have decided on using the in game timer for times.

    SOCOM Speedruns is on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SOCOM_Speedruns

    100% runs were polled on Twitter and the community decided - 100% includes ALL SECONDARY and ALL BONUS objectives. Let's see those runs!

    We are officially on speedrun.com. http://www.speedrun.com/socom_us_navy_seals

    @Plierr Took my crown on Death at Sea, with a time under a friggin minute!


    @BiGz took my crown on Ghost Town!


    And speaking of Plierr, he broke the ice on CA!


    More to come, when I get through the moderation backlog. Great stuff guys, let's keep filling out those boards.

    I actually like this idea too. I was always a "B" or "A" but never 100% on the "A" ... LOL That shit is hard too.
