Frame war-a-go-go

Screenshot suggestion: any ideas?

Noxxa: Updated with a 149-frame improvement thanks to Samsara.

Noxxa: Updated with a new BizHawk version by adelikat with improvements from the rest, saving 31 frames in total.

ars4326: Judging!

Noxxa: Updated yet again with a 23-frame improvement thanks to Samsara.

ars4326: Updating one mo' time with Aglar's 48 frame improvement!

ars4326: Hello, everyone. What can be said: When a group of highly dedicated, skilled TASers get together, good things (usually) happen. Dr. Tary might not eat humble pie, but his optimized trek escaping the space station was entertaining and very, very well polished. Outstanding job, gentlemen!
