Think you can beat Dark Souls II in only 20 minutes?

Okay, so YouTuber Distortion2 basically cheated by utilizing bugs and glitches to fly through From Software's hugely challenging adventure, but he still did it, right?

As you can see, the player takes advantage of plenty of glitches to avoid just about every major danger in the game. He relies pretty heavily on the in-game binoculars, which lets him move about at insane speeds. The most ridiculous part about this achievement? Distortion2 says he's not done; he wants to put together a speed run that comes in under the 20-minute mark…if that's humanly possible.

Yeah, you have to have a lot of time on your hands to make this happen. I remember the days when I used to have that kind of time…but now, I'm just happy if I can finish a game; the completionist mentality is sorta ebbing away.

Game Genie knew it never had a chance when future games would just came bundled with all the glitches needed for quick finishes.

There's no fun in finishing Dark Souls without getting beaten by enemies and people who invade. It's the struggle that makes the game worth playing. Granted, there's a challenge in beating it in 20 minutes but it's like Ben said… I'm happy finishing a game nowadays.

There's so much to do in Dark Souls that I have 150hrs already and I'm level 208 @[email protected]

The preparation required to do this would be astronomical, unless of course he's a developer and already knew of the exploits.
