Mario 64: The one proof that no matter how arbitrary, dumb or ridiculous a category is, someone has done it.
The TAS at hand was actually pretty entertaining, because collecting a 1up doesn't have the same long, boring animation to it collecting a star does.
No matter how arbitrary, dumb or ridiculous a category is, I would vote yes to any Super Mario 64 TAS.
This one was very interesting, some of the 1-UPs were really neat, such as the one he collected after he collected the star.
Remember Mickey's No A TAS?
I have been given reason to believe, based on some of the B-mashing moves he makes on slopes (particularly CCM), that the same might be possible while clipping the magic staircase. I also have confidence that it is possible to cross the rafters with dive rolls as well, and if not I am going to bet you can at least get on the last one and cross from there. That, of course, would open up a new set of levels provided that a dive roll is ample enough to get in the pipe.
