About Brose

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. So I'm still not real fast but I've cut off a lot of time since then. Took a while to get a capture card... The good one is still in the mail after two months, but at least I have a cheap one right now and I intend to post video for decent PBs.

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: https://youtu.be/jQMoJ0CvZqI?t=1229

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. At this point, I never even beat the game though. As I remember things from high school, I got like halfway through the Agent difficulty, 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.
