Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting.

[5059] GBA River City Ransom EX by tom_mai78101 in 08:48.03 The author worked on developing a pretty neat bot, the genetic algorithm bot, just to figure out how to get the best possible luck for a bunch of things in the TAS. Just just nuts to me. [5232] SNES Chrono Trigger by arandomgameTASer & keylie in 2:16:08.40 The careful amount of pre-planning and luck needed to improve a 9.5 year old movie still makes for a pretty tense watch for some of the major fights. [5399] GBC Pokémon: Crystal, Silver and Yellow Version "Coop Diploma" by gabraltar in 6:56:24.50 Having to handle 3 RPGs with and their RNG while also keeping it fast is incredibly impressive.

[5059] GBA River City Ransom EX by tom_mai78101 in 08:48.03 Seconding, I hadn't realized how big a role RNG plays in this game. [5081] GB Caesars Palace "best ending" by TaoTao & ViGadeomes in 00:25.95 I made a mental note to nominate this for Lucky TAS way back in February when it was published. The NES version is good too, but I'll nominate the GB version because of its finding a better best ending.

[5632] C64 Cosmic Combat "pacifist" by nymx in 04:02.40 This run a definitive example of the power of RNG manipulation. Without even moving the player’s ship or shooting a single enemy, nymx was able to constantly manipulate RNG through the run to cause all the enemy fighters to kill each other in order to progress through the game.
