Furious Paul - Hardcore Gaming & Speed Running

Furious Paul - Blog

Furious Paul's Latest Content

Gamer name is Furious Paul and I am a competitive gamer for many gaming genres, including FPS, RTS, and MMORPG.  I am also a speed runner for old school platformers.  I enjoy making strategy guides to help other gamers get through the same games I like to master, which you will find through out my website.  Currently, my main project is Vanilla WoW (under my WoW character's name Joana).  My side project is Super Castlevania IV, which I do stream it a few times a week for a few hours.  I talk a lot about WoW speedrunning on my channel, so feel free to follow and hang out to discuss vanilla WoW if you like.  Classic WoW will be my main focus for a long time.

Here are some awesome gaming events I was invited to play at recently:

Castlevania 2 "Glitchless Any%" 38:28 (WR) Speed Run - Speed Run through Castlevania II: Simon's Quest using no glitches.  This means no floor drops, no purple block tricks, no instant holy water Death kill, or other clipping through walls. Basically beating Simon's Quest the way the developers intend you to play it.
2-5-14 - SNES - Castlevania 4  <--Speed Runs!
First Ever Castlevania 4 Speed Run (1999) in 37:24 - I am actually the first Castlevania 4 speed runner who appeared on the scene back in 1999.  This video shows you the very first ever full speed run of the game to ever hit the internet.  There were no other speed runs for cv4 at the time and everything you see in the video are all my own strats I figured out.  I continued to improve on all the levels from the years 1999 - 2002, but this video shown here is the very first speed run of the game ever.  There were no other speed runners of this game until late 2002.  More info on my Castlevania 4 speed runs are shown in the video's YouTube description.

Castlevania 2 Any% 36:52 Speed Run - This is my latest Any% time through Castlevania II.  The first sub 37 Any% run ever.  This run only had 2 deaths in it but I was SOO close to getting only a 1 death run in.
1-14-14 - NES - Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest  <--Speed Runs!
Castlevania 2 100% 45:44 (WR) Speed Run - For the past couple of weeks I have been playing the 100% category of the Castlevania II run and have finally got a good run in that I am satisfied with for now.  In addition to all the other items I get in the game, the 100% category also involves getting a diamond, silk bag, silver knife, and a dagger.  I also show these items off as much as possible throughout the run.
