About Brose

Three ways to pronounce it. All are correct:
1. One syllable, like the plural of "bro."
2. Two syllables, "B-Rose," the second letter of the alphabet and then the flower.
3. Two syllables, rhymes with "rosé" style wine. Like a pinkish-colored wine made specifically for bros.

Joined April, 2020 (lockdown-era life has a lot to do with that). My original time total for all of Goldeneye then was 3:04:16 (with no N/As). So I'm still not real fast but I've cut off a lot of time since then. Hoping to be top-150 by the end of 2021.

I've also been working on speedrunning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES (1989). For me "the sound" is not so much the Aztec glass, but the boss-fight music when you find the Technodrome:

Soon as I joined the rankings I switched my control to 1.2. Before that, was casual 1.1, no cruise control or anything. For 1.2 I hold the controller like this:
Up C - tip of ring finger
Right C - knuckle of ring finger
Left C - tip of middle finger
Down C - knuckle of middle finger
B - index finger
A - index finger
It's what feels most natural to me. Kind of like playing bar chords on a guitar, since I bar the ring finger over two buttons in order to strafe right. Plus, it lets me use my pinky to hold the controller steady, rather than have to push buttons with it (i.e. "keyboard" style). So I'm going to stick with it and see how that turns out.

Might play Perfect Dark at some point, but it seems like such a big commitment to learn it, given I still have so much to work on for Goldeneye. I own Perfect Dark on original console. As I remember things from high school, I got like halfway through the Agent difficulty of PD, but then it kind of faded away as I was "outgrowing" the video game era of my life. Lol, I guess that didn't last.
