Watch live video from CosmoWright on www.twitch.tv Okay this is blowing my mind right now. CosmoWright is a big fish in the speed run circuit. He currently holds the world record for the Wind Waker speedrun and he is actually the founder of the SpeedRunsLive. He's planning to stream himself playing Wind Waker HD and I plan to tune in. So do many, many other people. But there's one problem: he hasn't finished downloading the game yet.
Here's the crazy thing: there are currently over 8000 people on his stream, watching CosmoWright download a video game. At time of writing the download seems to be hanging on 35% and he has 32 minutes left to go. People are so excited about watching CosmoWright play the brand new Wind Waker that they are willing to simply watch this man's download bar slowly increase towards 100% over the next hour.
This is the world we live in folks.
But yeah, let's be honest. Most of them probably just have it open on a spare tab to check in on every 15 minutes or so. I know that's what I'm doing.
(Yes, I am one of the 8000!)
