Submission #6647: RingRush's N64 Donkey Kong 64 in 26:46.83. Has an impressively long list of interesting bugs and sequence breaks. I enjoyed understanding the glitches and watching it evolve to this level. http://tasvideos.org/4192M.html

I have to say I think the makers of the game liked this show. Seeing the ancient grandad running and jumping around and the gramma breaking out of prison was quite amusing. The main tricks seem to be the high jump with throwing items and the damage boosts look like. There was enough variation to make it interesting even though a lot of parts were just jumping over enemies. Also those little squats during the bathroom fight made me lol. Going to give this a Yes.

Yea this is really good. Loved that last area where you literally go all over the place, on the sides, along the sides, what looks like under the racetrack, as well as backwards. Almost every other level had some odd interesting thing too like what looks like OOB shortcuts, unusual speed boosts riding along the very edge of the tracks. Looked like every corner was as precise as it it is going to get. Yes.

So for the Shinobi III speedrunners I had started a LOTAD for the No Kunai category of the game. However I started getting into it and am making a good effort at it. I do however notice that many parts are going to be quite similar to the original Any% TAS. Would this No Kunai be a good or a bad candidate for Moons? https://www.speedrun.com/shinobi3/run/zx246wem Edit: The No Kunai would be using the 6 button mode for the game. The route would be a bit different since you cannot use ceiling clips with kunai. Zipping with dive kicks would still be used. There is a pretty restrictive wall clip, but it may or may not save time.
OK so I have found a clip that is much slower but acts essentially the Same as the kunai clip. This means that the run 's route is now essentially the same as the standard one. With not a lot of difference. So I will not be submitting this no kunai tas.

I think unlocking all ship types in a first playthrough would be nuts. You cannot get the other versions like B or whatever but that would certainly be impressive.

I think this game choice does not work for me. The main problems are that the game is too simple and repetitive. This is further compounded by the lack of super play for some mini games where the fastest option seems to be to just to immediately fail. So...No vote unfortunately.

So I watched this walking around past midnight where there was a slight shower. Unnerved me a couple times, but not more than some woman coming out of her car when one of the banshees came on screen screeching. Later a dog REALLY did not like that screaming, it started going nuts even a block away barking at me. Very atmospheric game like Silent Hill so I felt relief when you OOB'd out of that one situation. I also really liked the shooting work in here where it is very spastic and yet perfectly precise. Good Tas!

Meh borderline No on entertainment. It is a barebones platformer for younger kids with long minigames in between levels. Good improvement though.

Wow really enjoyed that one. Ecco, a grilled dolphin, constantly is speeding through solid objects and other seafood at highspeed. Shark fins, eels, perch don't stand a chance at all. This movie basically is an all you can eat smorgasbord of delicious seafood. WARNING: don't watch on an empty stomach! Lots of strange clips and glitches throughout. The part starting where you get abducted by aliens and then perform a bunch of wall bounces and high speed clips around 23:00 is the best part of the movie. Maybe verging on stars or a high Moon? Only part I thought was a bit boring was the weird part with the tubes of water with the static background around 3:30. Also the autoscroller section near the end. Oh yea also mandatory political message: TIGER KING FOR PRESIDENT 2020!

Really well done. Anyone that has played this will understand the excessive luck in this run and how it is very obviously a tas. Seeing that last three bars of health at 3:39 is so teasing though, wish there was some way to knock those out then. Like the double KO too. Yes vote.
