[SethBling] recently set a world record speed run of the classic Super Nintendo game Super Mario World on the original SNES hardware. He managed to beat the game in five minutes and 59.6 seconds. How is this possible? He actually reprogrammed the game by moving specific objects to very specific places and then executing a glitch. This method of beating the game was originally discovered by Twitch user [Jeffw356] but it was performed on an emulator. [SethBling] was able to prove that this “credits warp” glitch works on the original hardware. Related: http://www.nerdcore.de/2014/01/14/hacking-pong-into-a-glitched-super-mario-game/

I was nine years old when Asteroids came out. This was after Pong and after Space Invaders. The dawning of the Gamer Age. I remember the rush when I even got close to an Asteroids game in an arcade or a pizzeria. What a sensation it was. Looking back now, those clunky arcade machines seem so primitive you half expect a Pterodactyl to emerge from inside and make a wiseass remark like they used to on The Flinstones. But in 1981, it was the future, one quarter away. Star Wars at your fingertips.

What happens when a 21st-century kid plays through video game history in chronological order? Start with the arcade classics and Atari 2600, from Asteroids to Zaxxon. After a year, move on to the 8-bit era with the NES and Sega classics. The next year, the SNES, Game Boy, and classic PC adventure games. Then the PlayStation and N64, Xbox and GBA, and so on until we’re caught up with the modern era of gaming. Would that child better appreciate modern independent games that don’t have the budgets of AAA monstrosities like Destiny and Call of Duty? Would they appreciate the retro aesthetic, or just think it looks crappy?

While cleaning out my storage unit in Seattle, I came across a treasure trove of original documents and backup disks from the early days of Lucasfilm Games and Humongous Entertainment. I hadn't been to the unit in over 10 years and had no idea what was waiting for me.
