They might, but you probably shouldn't be surprised if you just get four zeros and a 1/10 for somebody deciding to reward you for your "effort."

I mean, that's just how I'd feel. Maybe they want to watch you LP an RPG.

If we let people choose any game, it's really not about speed anymore.  We might as well make it a "good" Let's Play contest, and let people do whatever they want with a game. 

We could make it speed "themed", but in the end the judges are just going to score based on how amused they are.

Maybe we can offer a choice? 2-3 games? Apparently one is too few, but if we have too many we get what Det said.

If we do events judged solely on time, there's no reason not to just put up 2-3 games, and let people do any or all of them.  I don't see the point of limiting this catgory to just one set of medals if people are going to be unhappy with the choice.

People aren't going to be 100% happy no matter what.  If you think it's good enough, be decisive.  I'm going to add a Super Metroid category anyway.

Final decision is:

Super Mario Brothers 3 (Some Stage in World 4-6)

Bomberman 2 (Some Stage to be Decided)

Wacky Norondor Game (Fuck I don't Know Norondor IM me)

Super Metroid (Individual Merit ONLY)

This will open later than advertised, my apologies. Go practice your general gameplay and learn to record videos in the meantime.

Settings thus far:

SMB3 - The Final Airship Level on either World 5, 6 or 7 + the level before hand. This is to allow you to separate your speeding into two individual runs and even videos and to go back and practice at your leisure. That is, you can record a run through World 7-X, then World 7-XF, then go back and touch up one or the other at your leisure without being forced on edge to do both perfectly again.

Super Bomberman 2 - Same Deal, World 1F, World 2F, or World 3F + stage before.

Wacky Norondor Game - Norondor or another familiar party must contact me and help me determine a comparable stretch of this game or it will not be included. The game should be easy to emulate or download for anyone who has the give-a-fuck to actually learn to record video.

Super Metroid - Uhm, beat Super Metroid as fast as you can and provide some proof of it? I dunno, I'm just being nice to Det. Maybe he has words of wisdom.

I'm thinking about handicapping myself by requiring myself to get 100% items.  However, I'm pretty sure Lyrai and Kayin could easily beat me under that condition if they cared to try.

Nobody has contacted me about Norondor's wacky game.

Super Bomberman 2 stuff is available.

Just finished the first world of SMB3. If anybody could give me painstakingly accurate details about acquiring the Desert World's warp whistle, I'd appreciate it. Niku reminded me vaguely. I'll poke at it awhile. I've still got tomorrow, after all.
