– Speedrunner Cosmo Wright has beaten the world record for The Legend of Zelda: Orcarina of Time, having a final time of 18:40. He did exploit cheats in his run, such as by using a chinese version of the game which loads text faster, but did not use mods or cheats.
– The number of people who play Zynga games (such as Farmville) has dropped from 53 million games in early 2013 to 28 million now.
– The videogame Mad Max has been pushed back to 2015.
– Gaming Site Vita Player is planning on having a fundraiser where the editor of the site, Simon Plumbe, will be playing games for 24 hours (with a break, of course) and attempting to play at least 100 unique Vita titles, to bust the myth that the Vita has no games. You can read more details about the fundraiser here, and can donate here.
That’s all the neas for this week, but tune in next Friday (03.05.14) for more news from the Land of Gaming!
