Console verifications have many uses in TASing, such as improving emulation accuracy, and proving that what we see in emulators, really does work on console. TASing is an art, and seeing that art displayed on the game systems we love, is such an exciting experience. Through this work, we help preserve that art, and help preserve that love we all share.
This year has seen huge progress in verifying TASes! We have more than doubled the total number of verifications in one year, compared to all previous years combined (from 137 to 306).
In 2021, 7 individuals, have collectively verified 169 publications across 7 different systems:
Special thanks to all of the wonderful and dedicated people who recorded these verifications (in alphabetical order):
Alyosha, Bigbass, CasualPokePlayer, Kosmic, rcombs, TiKevin83, and ViGreyTech.
There is still much work to be done! But I am confident the progress will continue.
Finally, we must thank the creators of these TASes. Without them and their hard work, this site and this community, would not be here. Thank you all, and happy new year!
