I played a fair bit of Remember Me on PC - no idea why I didn't finish it! I remember it (har har) being rather good, so it's one I'll need to keep an eye out for rebuying on PS3 someday.

I've finally got round to having a go at Super Mario Bros. on the Switch - it is a tradition to play it wherever it can be played. This time however, in the midst of watching the most recent Awesome Games Done Quick, I thought I'd have a go at my own speedrun. I'm pretty good at The Marios; I should give it a go!

The world record is 4 minutes and 55 seconds.

My time was: 7 minutes and 50 seconds. Crying or Very sad
It turns out real speed runners don't stop and get a safety mushroom. Or lose two of their three lives along the way. Or carefully step up the gappy stairs on World 8.

That is far better than most of us could manage, I'd bet!

If you get the chance, look up Summoning Salt's videos on the SMB speedrun - really engaging and absolutely worth watching.

Summoning Salt is great!

Oooh, I reckon I could see you for that Speedrun though Jimmers . . . how are you timing yourself?

Aye, being 3 minutes off a World record is incredible tbh plus you know the mistakes you're making so know it can be improved on.

The awesome power of the stopwatch function on my phone's clock app. It wasn't a serious attempt in all honesty!

And I could probably cut out a minute and a half it I didn't die / stop. I know that, from Mr. Salt's videos, they do that trick in 4-2 to get the game confused as to whether you go down the pipe or up the beanstalk, and that isn't going to happen, so I'll keep my 7:50 for a bit.

I do enjoy AGDQ, but I don't get Speedrunners' paradoxical patience/impatience. E.g. you can do Final Fantasy VII in about 7 hours without breaking it beyond recognition - how does one practice something enough to get the time down to 7 hours?

If you see the number of runs on a speedrunner's video, it's literally thousands of tries. From what I know, these guys don't play anything except the game they're running at that time. A lot of them stream it and try an earn a living doing it.

River City Ransom
I know there are examples of the "lefty-righty puncher" that people always place in the Classics box (Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon), however I've always found that sort of thing to feel a bit limited - I don't get it.

River City Ransom I loved. This genre of game is silly, and I'm pleased that, back in the days of the NES, Technos realised this and made this gem. It was bloody easy (I wouldn't feel so positive about it if I spent 40 of 1990 money on Street Gangs) and the boss system is illogical, but the wacky reaction of the gangs made this a treat. No BARF! from me! I score it 7/8.5

River City Ransom is awesome. Levelling up your lad by eating good food and reading books to punch out bullies - that's wholesome fun.

The Scott Pilgrim vs. The World game that launched around the time of the movie about 8 year ago or so is effectively a spiritual successor to RCR. It's a crying shame that Ubisoft had to delist that game from online stores for licensing issues. Aww!

I still have it installed on my PS3 for that reason! It's a brilliant beat em up, probably my favourite.
