I'm Nahoc, a French-Canadian guy. I've been following TASvideos since 2005. I've always enjoyed seeing games pushed to their limits.
In 2011, I decided to help the community a bit more and became a publisher/active player. I also attempted to submit an improved SM64 "16 Stars" run, but it got rejected (see it here).
In 2012, I've had eight N64 movies published, became a judge, a moderator on the forums, and obtained the "skilled player" rank. I mostly did Super Mario 64 TASes, aswell as some HD encodes of other TAS movies on the site.
As of 2013 I am no longer active, although I browse the site once in a while.
You can watch my videos here, on my YouTube channel. If you have any question, ask me on twitter (@Nahoc10).
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is a 2.5 dimensional side-scrolling adventure game featuring Kirby, our little pink hero. This time around, it's up to Kirby to collect the seventy-four crystal shards and save the fairies' home, Ripple Star.
In this run, Nahoc collects all shards while showing off some of the abilities this game has to offer. Please read the submission text for more information.
Note: There are encodes of higher resolution in the discussion thread.

In this run, Nahoc aims to reach the ending credits as fast as possible.
If you want to see more skating action, make sure to check the runs of the first and the third installments in the series.

Chameleon Twist 2 (カメレオンツイスト2) takes place after the events in Chameleon Twist. Davy and his friends (Jack, Fred and Linda) are playing in the forest, still carrying the backpack from his last adventure, when suddenly the rabbit from before falls down and knocks one of the chameleons into the sky.
Contrary to the Chameleon Twist run, all 6 levels need to be played through in order to reach the end; Sky Land, Carnival Land, Ice Land, Great Edo Land, Toy Land and Pyramid Land.

Bomberman 64 (爆ボンバーマン Baku Bonbāman) is the first 3-D game within the Bomberman series. It also implements a different single-player mode by incorporating action-adventure and platforming stages, instead of arenas in which enemies or other elements must be destroyed.
This TAS is played on the Japanese version because of its shorter intro.
If you want to see more Bomberman goodness, we have plenty more Bomberman Movies. There is also a 100% run by zvsp.

The protagonist of this game is a blue chameleon named Davy who, upon following a rabbit (closely resembling the one from a Lewis Carroll book) into a magical hole in the ground, finds he has taken on a humanoid form.
Chameleon Twist has a total of 6 levels, of which only 4 need to be played through in order to reach the end.
This run is 00:11.33 seconds faster than the previous run thanks to a timesaver in the second candle room and a better fight against the last boss.

In a shocking twist of events, Bowser kidnaps Peach inside her own castle. Mario shows up and rains on Bowser's parade by collecting all 120 stars and winning in record time.
Numerous bugs are exploited in order to speed up Mario's progress and the physics engine is abused to its fullest.
This is an improvement of 09:04.17 over the previous movie by Rikku.
If you prefer to see the game beaten in the fastest time, then watch the "0 Stars" run.

A wizard is mixing a batch of magic potions when an explosion sends the gloves on his hands flying into the air. One lands safely outside the castle, but the other lands in an evil potion mixture. It's this evil glove who decides to take over the castle. Meanwhile, seven crystals, which used to sit on top of the castle and give the surrounding lands their life force, also fly off in all directions. Thankfully though, the good glove, Glover, changes the crystals into rubber balls so that they land safely.
Now Glover must find the crystals and put them back into the castle to restore life to the land, avoiding the bad glove who is out to stop him and take over the kingdom and the wizard's power.
Nahoc hops, bounces, and dribbles his way through this game, taking advantage of a conveniently-placed crystal to skip right to the boss room in every stage.
If you want to see more of Glover, we also have an all stages run.
Note: There are rapid flashing lights during the boss fight at Fortress of Fear, which may cause epileptic seizures.

At first there were 70 stars because Bowser demanded it. Then there were 16 stars because MIPS the rabbit demanded it. Then there was 1 star because Bowser's Sub demanded it. Now there are none because the viewers are impatient and demanded the game be quicker.
As with many other runs on this site, the goal of pure speed has resulted in the complete breaking of the game. Very little of the game's normal play remains. If you'd like to see more of what Super Mario 64 offers, see the 120 stars run.
This movie is 20 frames faster than the previous movie due to a new route and extreme optimization, explained in the submission message.
Super Mario 64 has a history of publications on this site. If you wish to see how it unfolded since the beginning, see the page SM64TASHistory. Also, if you have a hankering to see MIPs the rabbit, the 16 stars route has been improved.
