No worries Max. I just got a 22:12 though so you might want to watch this one instead :P





It could have turned out better on YouTube so I might play with the settings, etc, a bit. It should be good enough for the leaderboard at least.

I've started recording them offline with OBS and uploading them to YouTube for various reasons (Twitch muting audio, resetting constantly/choking while people are watching my stream doesn't feel good, easier for me to get better quality offline, etc) and have decided I probably won't use a mic for these because not everyone wants to hear my voice :P

My stream will probably just be for MAME and stuff from this point I think. That way I don't need to worry about muted audio and can just have fun with the chat and stuff.

Edit - Completely unrelated but I perfected Eyedol on the stream 2nite, couldn't think of anywhere else to post this:

Sorry for the double-post, just wanted to mention that I just hit my goal of sub 22 with a 21:55 :D




So yeah I'm kinda done with SotN, can't be bothered going for a sub 21 gonna draw the line here.

Wow, Nos, that's an absolutely awesome accomplishment! I can only imagine the amount of research and practice that goes into putting together a run like that. SotN was one of my most played PS1 games, but I had no idea that you could skip so many areas and bosses and still make it through to the end. Very well done! My hat is off to you, mate.

:hello:

The new Castlevania: LoS Mirrors of Fate, so far is pretty good. Better than he last Lord's of Shadow for sure.
You should check it out. It may be speedrun worthy?
Aria of Sorrow is my second favorite, SoN obviously is first for me.

I haven't really seen much of that game yet Chris, will check it out some more. But yeah I pretty much only ever wanted to speedrun some of the older ones. Speaking of which...



This will probably be the last game I speedrun for a while. Enjoy :)

Not a PB here but I've been working on the original Castlevania for NES lately. Kinda messed up the recording window (it's been a while) but hope you enjoy, my PB is 14:49 which you can see in my splits. I think I can maybe get a sub 14 in a good run. Such a fun game, holy water OP!

Cool, Nos! :woot:

Funnily enough, I was giving my NES a checkup last week. Castlevania is always the first cartridge I plug in to see if it's still working OK. In the past, I usually keep dying at the section with the three ceiling traps:

This time, however, I managed to make it through those traps for the first time that I can remember and eventually quit out somewhere in this section:

Watching your run gives me hope that I might actually beat the game someday. :viking:
