So I tried out some more Blaster Master tonight and I swear I suck a lot more when I play games on the computer. Yesterday when I gave it a test run on a TV I got to the Crab boss with basically no hiccups along the way. Today It took me all my continues just to make it to him. Also found out the bomb trick doesnt work on him, so I'm gonna have to go about it the old fashioned way.

Since I was struggling so badly I decided to take a break from Blaster Master and do a quick TMNT run. Turned out to be not so quick. I apparently suck at that game now too and it took nearly the rest of my gaming time to conquer what should have taken me 30 mintues. Since I've already got my speed run on youtube for TMNT I wont bother uploading this crappy video of me barely making it through.

So I only got the one game finished tonight, but here are the screens from the last 2 games that didnt make it into my previous blog:

I've almost caught up with my uploading, just missing Castlevania and the first half of Mega Man 6. All the titles below are now linked directly to their youtube video (Thanks to Bickman2k yet again!!. Just click on the one your interested in and enjoy! Please comment or PM if I screwed up and linked to the wrong video in any of the links.

A couple people have expressed interest in hearing me blab about the games while I play through them. Is there much interest in me trying this out? I'm not sure how well it will go, but if there are a few people that want me to give it a go I'll try it out.

So I got some video capture equipment and software running my my old PC now. Which means I can finally upload my TMNT video for those of you interested. I wasnt really concerned with the editing (as you can probably tell) so I just chopped the video in half in order to upload to youtube. For some reason the second half failed to upload so I'll try it agian tomorrow. In the mean time here is the first part of the speed run:

Some of you may remember me talking about doing a Speed Run of TMNT for the NES to submit to Twin Galaxies waaay back around Christmas time. I did infact record a run I was happy with (could be cleaned up a bit, but it was fairly decent) and sent it off to get verified. Unfortunately the same week I sent the tape in the NES ref left his position at TG.

It was unclear what was happening with submissions until a new ref emerged early in June. It was my hope that the tape was forwarded along to the new ref for verification, but it seems that he has cleared his submission backlog and my tape wasnt there.

Luckily for me I sent in a copy and still have the original. Sucks that I have to re-submit it, but at least its already done and hopefully things will go smoother this time. I'll update with some good news next time I hope.
