Introduction

I'm Memory, a trans woman TASer that started in late 2015. I typically play games for Nintendo systems, but am not against TASing other systems. I'm interested in a wide variety of genres but typically have little patience for turn based RPGs nowadays.

I was first introduced to speedrunning and sequence breaking around 2007 where I discovered a site called Metroid2002 while waiting for the release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I've been on and off involved the speedrunning community since then, but didn't actually really contribute particularly much until around October of 2015 where I started glitch hunting LEGO BIONICLE for the GBA, which eventually led into me making my first TAS and first submisssion. Since then I've fallen in love with TASing and glitch hunting.

In addition to TASing I really love certain visual novels like the Ace Attorney series and the Zero Escape series. My current avatar is Akane/June from 999 and I would heavily recommend not looking her up unless you've played the games because there's a ton of spoilers.

Metroid Prime Hunters is the DS spinoff to the "Metroid Prime" trilogy, involving Samus in a race against six other bounty hunters to collect the eight Octoliths and get the "Ultimate Power".
At least, that's what was supposed to happen. Unfortunately for those bounty hunters, Memory is on the case. Thanks to a variety of tricks, out of bounds glitches, and optimization, Samus blazes through various planets in the Tetra Galaxy and collects the eight Octoliths in record time, destroying everything in her path. World's greatest bounty hunter indeed.
For those curious to see how the series originated, we also have a run of the original Metroid.

LEGO Bionicle is a game based on the Bionicle toy sets, only released on the Game Boy Advance.

Set before the Toa Mata arrive on Mata Nui, it chronicles the adventures of Takua as he searches for the kidnapped Turaga and hidden Toa stones.

In this run, Memory abuses multiple glitches and general shoddy programming in this handheld game to complete the game only rescuing two Turaga's (village elders) and two Toa Stones.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III - Radical Rescue is the final Turtles game released for the Game Boy. Unlike the other Game Boy Turtles games, it isn't a sidescrolling beat 'em up game, but is actually a Metroidvania by Konami released years before Symphony of the Night. Each Turtle has a unique ability that they can perform. You start as Michaelangelo, and the goal is to rescue the 3 other turtles, Splinter, and April. To do this you must fight several D-List Turtles villains like Scratch and Dirtbag before fighting the big bad (cyber) Shredder who is guarding April.

Memory beats this game in less than 19 minutes with some luck manipulation and several exploits to avoid saving two heroes.

Current Projects

  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity - Done 6 tracks in Grand Prix out of 20 but I might possibly need to redo 2 of those tracks. I'll also do a Championship TAS when I'm either done or mostly done with the Grand Prix tracks.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure - Have a wip that goes through level 1 but I'm still doing research and might find more improvements.

On hold

  • LostWinds - Need to completely restart because the version of Dolphin I started this on doesn't work quite as well on my current machine. Also think there might be some early game improvements.

Canceled Projects

  • Bomberman Max 2: Red Advance - If I ever get back to this it'd probably be Blue Advance unless TASing both versions are warranted.

Potential Future Projects

Note these aren't in any particular order and a bunch of other stuff might pop up that I end up TASing that aren't on the list.

  • F-Zero GP Legend and F-Zero Climax - These would be done in time attack mode for a variety of reasons. Don't think I'd tackle these directly after MV though (assuming I get around to them).
  • Sonic Heroes - Maybe Team Sonic and Rose. MAYBE Shadow. There isn't enough money in the world that you can pay me with to do Chaotix.
  • Wario World - Finding memory addresses for this game seems to be a pain. Might push on through anyways.
  • Metroid II - Improvement on "select glitch" branch. Main demotivating factor is that the map editor is a pain to use.
  • Taz: Wanted - I said I was going to TAS this game like in 2016, didn't I? Oops.
  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz: Eventually
  • Metroid Prime Hunters - Improvement on current TAS eventually. Some things have been found since but I really haven't been motivated to touch the game. Maybe when some new desmume version or some new rerecording DS emulator comes out.
  • LEGO BIONICLE - I found some improvements like a billion years ago but I get demotivated by dark rooms. Also I would probably want to actually do it on mGBA core this time.
