The odyssey began when the siren song of AGDQ beckoned "degenerate", speedrunning gamers from faraway lands. Soon lights and cameras anointed Wodahs with the prestige he was due, paid for with calluses, lost Saturdays, and hourly investments measured in hundreds. The moment may have been bittersweet, but true Odyssean tales are not defined by hardship, but by endurance and redemption. The journey continued with the pursuit of 0:43 on Facility agent, a time achieved only 3 times in the course of 1 or 2 billion human attempts. Times like Facility 43 don't just happen. Wodahs knew this and set sail anyway, sent adrift in an ocean of repetition and failure. Nearly 100 hours went by with no shores in sight. There were bad Trevs and there were badder Trevs. God runs were desecrated by conveniently timed backboosts and shapeshifting RNG. Eventually, and inevitably, however, willpower prevailed and teh run happened -- Facility was dead. Wodahs' reputation vaulted a few more echelons, scraping the clouds, but -- as you are about to learn -- this may only be the first chapter in a much longer story.
----------o0o----------The word "documentary" is appropriate here. The video is over an hour long, exploring a variety of settings as Wodahs fields questions from dsx. The video comes to life as anecdotal video is woven in to complement the dialogue. Here's how dsx described the production:
Filmed on location in the San Francisco Bay Area during the official Elite California Meet 2015 GoldenEye 007 speedrunner Wodahs-Reklaw achieves Facility Agent 0:43, a high-skill individual level world record. In celebration, he decides to create "the most insane tour video possible", recruiting unqualified filmmaker DsxChallenger in an effort to make the best GoldenEye speedrunning video of all time. This documentary provides an insight into Wodahs' habitat, as well as the struggle it takes to achieve world records in GoldenEye. He also answers some of the big questions.Watch (at least) the first 6 minutes right now; feedback is encouraged over on the forum thread.
GE Activity-Eise Smit led the charge, picking up 25 PRs in 14 different levels. This puts him at 12th place with 5207 points heading into February, less than 100 points from #10-ranked Shawn Johnson! He spent a lot of time on Control, ending up with 4:00 Agent, 4:13 SA, and 4:18 00A, which were enough to get him on the level's leaderboard with 270 points. He became one of the few eliters to successfully pull off the most risky version of the Aztec glass strategy (more on that later). -Karl Jobst, one of the all-time greats, had five amazing times this month. 0:52 Agent, 0:56 SA, 0:57 00A got him on the Jungle leaderboard, and he got world records on Cradle Secret Agent (0:35) and 00 Agent (0:36) to get 300 points there...better yet, he got those WRs in one day! He used a new strategy as well, throwing the grenade into the hut that Trevelyan first runs into. -Luke Szklarz took that new strategy and used it to get 0:37 on Cradle 00A, but stuck with the old strat for SA 0:36. Both excellent times, although Luke wasn't done there...he focused on Train this month, coming away with a superb trio: 1:01 Agent, 1:26 SA, and 1:53 00A. These times tie him with David Clemens for 3rd on the Train leaderboard, behind Rayan Isran and Marc Rützou. Luke pulled off a very impressive rise in the ranks in 2013, and continues to impress in the new year; we'll see whether he can push past Bryan Bosshardt to make the top 4. -Jim Barrett spent last year clawing his way back into the top 10, and rumor has it he has his sights set on passing Ilari Pekkala for the #7 spot. Anybody who knows Jim knows his tendency to complain about his unsurpassed streak of bad luck, but Baron Samedi finally threw him a bone, dying fast enough for Jim to get Egypt Agent 0:46. He had a Train trio of his own, clocking in at 1:07 Agent, 1:32 SA, and 1:57 00A. He also pulled off the crazy Aztec strategy, and since I promised I'd talk about that... -Axel Zakrisson only PRed once this month, but it's one of his best times: Aztec Agent 1:28. Getting under 1:30 requires very fast guard manipulation to open the glass door where you'd normally need Jaws' keycard. Eise Smit, Jim Barrett and Ilari Pekkala all used this strategy to get 1:29 this month, a crazy rush of times using a technique that had only been successfully utilized by four people before. -Ryan "Goose" White continues to dazzle many hundreds of viewers a night, after he and Alex Anderson thrilled the crowd at Awesome Games Done Quick 2014. Besides his own trio of Train times at AGDQ (1:06/1:32/2:00), Goose finally achieved a world record he'd been trying years for: Streets Agent 1:12! Ryan Lockwood recently got this time, receiving unprecedented amounts of hype for his reactions (and for skipping 1:13), but Goose's accomplishment shouldn't go unnoticed; Marc Rützou is the only other player with 1:12, a time which requires a combination of luck, very precise execution, and CLUTCHNESS. -Daniel "Wodahs" Coelho is back from hiatus, and moving up the ranks once again; currently sitting at 37th, Wodahs spent a week improving quite a few different times, but then focused on a few key levels. He came away with three world records: Archives Agent 0:16, Dam Agent 0:53, and Runway Agent 0:22. It's hard to predict how high Wodahs will manage to climb, but I don't see him slowing down any time soon. With all that in mind, it's time to bring back an award that's been dead for too long:
Player of the Month!We've seen a lot of activity this month, but there's only one POM award, and in January 2014, it goes to:
Henrik Norgren!Most famous for his amazing, game-breaking knowledge of GoldenEye, Henrik is ranked 24th right now, and only had four world records prior to January (getting three of those four in the last week of December). He more than doubled that total last month with five new WRs: Runway Agent 0:22, Bunker 1 Agent 0:17, Surface 2 Agent 0:48, Depot Agent 0:25, and Cradle Agent 0:34. On Christmas Day last year, he was tied with many other players on the World Record Leaders page with just one WR; he's now T-9th with Jimmy Bauer, passing many GE greats along the way. POM Runner-Up: Eise Smit That's it for this month. Happy speedrunning!

UPDATEVeteran Trent Hovis answered my challenge/bounty on the boards to create a subtitled version of the video. All the run's glory is plain to see now:
Hey folks - Derek here. I'm here to share with you my new favorite video - Ryan Lockwood's narrated replay of his record-tying 1:12 Streets Agent run from a few days ago. For those who missed the news or even those who already got the word (see: Corey Stolzenbach's post), let me provide more context for what makes this time--and the video below--so interesting.
The ManHundreds know Ryan Lookwood from his Twitch stream; dozens others have met him at our annual meetup. There are a lot of, um... idiosyncratic dudes that take to speedrunning, and Ryan Lockwood is no exception. He's an intense dude, in short.
The VideoHere's Ryan narrating his run over stream to a 50+ audience, shortly after achieving it. It was the first time he or anyone else watched the run.
The AchievementRyan is the second person to achieve the time of 1:12 on this level. Normally record ties aren't big news, but Ryan hit this time before getting 1:13. This is absurdly unlikely. 1:12 is one of the most frame-for-frame maxed times in GoldenEye, first accomplished by Marc Rützou in 2012, a player whose made a name for grinding hard to break/set records that are daunting to match. With 20+ people sharing the old record of 1:13 in early 2012, the prospect of 1:12 was a popular debate in the forums. A $100 bounty was posted for anyone who could get this time--legitimately--and after weeks of attempts, Marc won the "race". Only a few have shown serious intentions (or even interest) in matching the feat since. Technically, Ryan isn't among them, as 1:13 was his goal. But you'll see in the video that he had a good sense of what was on the line toward the end of his run.
The OddsThe nuances of "modern" Goldeneye speedrunning may be hard to detect, but the novelty of this run's unlikeliness should not be. A 1:14 run Streets is probably a 1 in 20 event, with respect to Lockwood's ability. A 1:13 absolutely requires something random (see: RNG) - the presence of a grenade launcher guard. Let's call 1:13 a 1 in 500 event. A 1:12 run leans on "RNG factors" even more, also requiring at least 3 "boosts" from gunfire (getting shot in the pack, pushing you ahead slightly). Let's suppose 1 in 10,000 odds for 1:12, in which case you can probably expect dozens of 1:13 runs before achieving 1:12. Think of this like a statistical outlier in a distribution plot - perhaps a few hundred data points between 74.0 and 75.0 seconds, thousands between 74.0 an 76.0, and one 72.9.
