Let's Speed!

Begins the 13th!

Ends the 24th!


Celebrity Guest Judge: Frocto!

The interest thread will be thrown up.

We determine an easy to access game to emulate and record speed runs in. We may settle on an entire game or a single level. Hopefully the game is well made and interesting and everyone is mildly familiar with it.

Super Bomberman 2 Set-up with Rom and Slot 5 save. ZSNES.

You have 4 flame, 4 bombs, two speed-ups and the glove. Defeat World 4-6, the Boss, then the Boss Robot.

Submit videos of each portion individually if you'd like. No savestates in the middle of attempts, please.

In general, you must bomb little buttons so that they're all set to "On" and/or destroy all of the enemies in a stage to advance.

Super Mario Brothers 3 Set-up with Rom and Slot 1 save. ZSNES.

Er, one of those should open Super Mario Allstars + World.

Anyways, you are to defeat World 6-5 and 6-7. You have a Leaf, Fire Flower, Star, Mushroom, Frog Suit and Music Box to do it with. You are expected to document and add your overworld travel time, though I'll accept that being a separate video. If you encounter the hammer brothers, so be it. Don't cut them out. So you could have three videos: 6-5, 6-7, and travel between the two including anything you encounter. You may use the Mushroom House power-up, whatever it may be.

You see, I decided that instead of doing something lame like Norondor said(run to the right and don't get hit), you'll have to endure an auto-scroll stage and a puzzle stage.

Enjoy.

Norondor and anyone else who wanted it should hash out an equally esoteric and interesting save state + rom of wacky japanese hookshot game before the end date. Otherwise, these are your two choices.

I think Det will ultimately be the only one that cares, but uh, merit badges for interesting or fast Super Metroid Speed runs.

I'd just like to let everybody know that even if this contest only gets one entry, it will still be eligible for medals and judging.

Why? Because I put effort into setting it up.

You have six days!

Thoughts: I might extend this until Monday if anybody else can convey to me that they'd use the time to enter.

I got really lucky and not only glove-busted him for two back-to-back hits, but broke his AI and made him detonate himself for an amazing 17 second 4-7 clear.

I don't care if you all just play some easy ass Bomberman 2. I included the SMB3 option to see how fucking manly some of you complaining Norondors actually are. But are you really just gonna let me coast into the Gold?

I will definitely be entering this. If you extend the deadline, I will be able to play at my leisure tomorrow, rather than staying up tonight to do it.

Dead-line extended to Monday Morning 9 AM Eastern.

Good luck beating that perfect Genius Bomberman Kill.

And I will be putting up better 4-6 and 4-8 videos.

I'd just like to say that thinking of a unique game, unique challenge, unique settings and actually playing there to set-it-up was incredibly fun on my end. I'd love to keep doing this in the LP Dungeon after the Worstlympics are over.

I'm down with that.

Unless you're being sarcastic.  You're running the whole Worstlympics so I can't tell if you really do enjoy punishing yourself with menial work or not.

I am not being sarcastic. I have enjoyed every aspect of the Worstlympics that did not involve somebody telling me between fevered mouth-breaths that they could have done it better or be bothered to read the thread, but they were busy doing nothing.

Also playing video games is not menial work? It was really fun to gauge which levels of Bomberman 2 and SMB3 would provide unique challenges. That one Cave Ice Level in SMB3 is infamous for it's exit.

Yeah I heard that in Super Bomberman 2.

Otherwise I'd like to chime in that I am very pleased with your bravado. You clearly rehearsed a few times and I bet a blooper reel would be hilarious. The Mario Stages were chosen very specifically out of spite(I totally want to see one of you go mad trying to beat that Puzzle Stage having never done it before) and I am sure you will earn a bevy of bonus points for doing both challenges, and doing an auto-scroll Mario stage with the frog suit.

Well done, sir.
