Other games?! Preposterous!
« on: January 17, 2010, 11:46:47 PM »
Yes, Other games. The topic of todays... topic. (redundancy 101, I took the class)

I know we're all Zelda guys here, but are there any other games you like to play or run here and there?

Any you actually prefer over zelda? (No one will answer this)


My input: I run a few other games, like Mystical Ninja. I'm currently planning Goemon's Great adventure, Earthbound, and Mother 3 runs as well, but strategy and routing's a pain.
Playing, it really all depends. I've been playing an assload of Starfox 64 lately for no apparent reason, and the occasional RPG.

I did some metroid prime for a while.  My best time is 1:36.  I'll probably try to beat that in a few months.

Other than that, not really.

Since starting to speedrun OoT, my overall gaming has decreased considerably. I pretty much don't play any other video games anymore.

Same.

I had started a Dead Space Any% PC speedrun but I quit early (I realized I wasn't willing to be patient, plus fraps was causing lots of lag and sound issues). I haven't attempted speedrunning any other games other than OoT. I rarely play anything else unless I have family members/friends to play with.

I've also done Spyro 2 (Ripto's Rage!) is 45:03.  I was planning on doing Final Fantasy Tactics Advance until I lost my cart, and I'm planning on doing a Sword of Mana run when I'm done The GB/GBA Zeldas.

EDIT: I kicked ass at Mario Kart DS a couple years ago (held #23 in the world at one point).

I play Metroid, Final Fantasy, Halo, Elder Scrolls...pretty sure there's a lot I'm forgetting about here.

As far as speedrunning goes, the only games that I really speedrun are Super Metroid and Final Fantasy IX because I get something (relatively) tangible out of it. I usually take my time to enjoy a game when I first get it, play it normally without a guide, then after that I go straight to GameFAQs and find all the secrets I missed. I play through the game a few more times until I get bored of playing it *normally* (which nowadays is very quickly). That's when I start with the challenges.

I'm not actually a speedrunner, I'm just a challenge gamer. These go hand in hand, though, and before I know it, I end up on ZSR. Perhaps someday I will do some real speedrunning, but for now, this will have to do.

I prefer low% to any% simply because if I can complete a game without any unnecessary items, I have the skills to take on anything it throws at me. My original concept of OoT low% was when I saw Manocheese's Uber Challenge guide on GameFAQs. I learned the tricks and completed it. I figured that it was low% without item use restrictions and without the Giant's Knife (Broken). His constant reminders in the rules that the player must get ALL Medallions seemed to imply that you weren't technically required to have them to beat the game, but I eventually forgot about it until a GameFAQs member confirmed that only Shadow and Spirit Medallions were needed. Then I started a topic there to theorize on what low% would actually be, and then ZFG pointed me to ZSR, where they have ISG, bomb hovering, RBA, and TP SBs (including the awesome EMS).

I also liked low% because to me, it was a faster form of perfection. 100% runs took too long (at least for me) and the end result of any%, was...well, any%. Something somewhat random. I didn't like that. Now that I've seen a few 100% routes, I do them somewhat casually (just so I can fully complete a game in a reasonable amount of time).

Final Fantasy is a bit different. Instead of low%, I do low level challenges (or low EXP really). I usually add restrictions like low AP, no extra skills learned (e.g. Limit Breaks and whatnot), basically anything that you could grind. I did a lot of grinding when I was a kid, and this is probably to make up for it. But because I want to have 100% files for those, too, and because playing through the game takes so frickin' long, I tend to always get the missables no matter how much forced EXP I have to take with it. This is where my OoT low% w/ Forest Stage nut upgrade and w/o RBA came from. And only without RBA because at the time we didn't know that you could get sticks back by buying them. I abandoned this idea for adventure games after seeing how fast 100% runs can be done, but I still keep them for Final Fantasy playthroughs.

Halo doesn't really lend itself to speedruns or challenges (at least not the way we know them). It doesn't really have sequence breaks. I challenge myself with Legendary playthroughs, but that's about it. If I can get my Call of Duty skills up to scratch, I may start making videos of 3-star Special Ops missions from Modern Warfare 2.

Elder Scrolls doesn't really fit our challenge/speedrun profile either, but I enjoy playing as Elminster. Basically I play an unarmored mage with a sword. I like the depth of sidequests in that game, and the customization of weapons (although there's no option for a longsword that deals Sonic Damage. FML).

I usually focus on one or two games at a time, perhaps growing bored of one eventually and switching to another. I haven't even finished all the new games that I have, because I'm so attached to the old ones - and because I still haven't finished doing challenges for them. I'm currently working on Metroid Prime 22% hard mode.

Other than Zelda:
Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Paper Mario & Super Mario Sunshine.
I like all of my games but these are the best after the 3D Zelda games.

...How do you make hyperlinks out of words? I'm such a SMF noob.

Anyways concerning Final Fantasy, I assume you speedrun IX for excalibur 2? :P
Also, Challenges, I tend to do these a lot. I was going through the LLNM challenge for VII, and I recently did a No Equipment playthrough of Super Mario RPG. As well as a Lowest Entry (caught, not seen) possible run of Pokemon blue /w solo Charmander. :D

I wanna do the Excalibur II Perfect Game for FFIX, but I don't agree with the stat paths. The main problem with perfect stats is that stat-boosting equipment contributes fractions of points to your stats when you level up, so you have to level up with the best equipment to get good stats. This basically requires you to play the whole game at level 1 wherever possible. For some forced encounters you have to jump through really small hoops (not literally) to avoid EXP. When you are forced to get EXP, you have to figure out which party member suffers the least stat loss by absorbing the EXP while not having their best equips on. Also the endgame stat paths after getting the sword are prioritized in order of usefulness (Spirit, Strength, Magic, Speed) with strength and magic switched depending on the character. I don't like that, because even though it gets you to 50 Spirit and no more (with 50 being the max) and that way you don't waste points invested into Spirit, that makes the Spirit boosting equipment less effective when you are level 99. I'm trying to get it so that if the best Spirit boosting equip a character has gives +7, they should end up with 43 Spirit, and the other stats get to whatever the highest average ends up as. Even if Speed (which turns out to be rather useless due to the way the ATB works) is what more points can be gained in, I will gain them in favor of Strength or Magic.

If you have no clue what I'm talking about and why I'm going to all this trouble, suffice it to say that the Excalibur II is the ultimate weapon for the knight character in FFIX, and it cannot be collected after the clock hits 12 hours. This sword is in a dungeon on disc 4. How inconvenient.

There was one guy who wrote a program to determine the best stat paths for the criteria GameFAQs had set (I had thought of doing this too but I suck at writing code) but that still doesn't help me because I'm looking for highest average stats without wasting Spirit boosts from equipment.

I should also mention I've done some work with sm64, super mario sunshine, dk64 and there are probably other games I'm forgetting cause its 8 am right before school and I went to bet way too late. >_>

Yes. Here are a few games: Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Smash Bros, Melee, Brawl, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy, F-Zero GX, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart Wii.

That's about it. Love all the Metroids, but Prime and Super Metroid are the best. Also love Galaxy and 64; I sometimes speed run Mario Galaxy. Smash I just play with my friends and the same about the Mario Karts.

I used to speedrun MKDS in time trials, back in 2007 before I left I was #33 Worldwide and #2 Canadian on the MK player's page in AF PRB. You can still find some old records of my PR's, Myths and GODs on my youtube page @ MasterLuigiSW. Now I'm like #47 (a couple pr's I've never posted, so it's not uptodate) and I stopped since 3 years :P Hopefully MK3DS won't be a newbie mario kart like MKWii and snaking will be possible just like in mkds or mkdd. http://www.mariokart64.com/mkds/profile.php?pid=629

I would gladly speed run other games such as SM64, MK64, B-K, B-T, DK64, MM2, and CV1 and probably more. But PAL instead of NTSC prevents this, so I just play other games for fun instead of speed running.

I also play Megaman and Megaman X, Castlevania, Mario, Banjo Kazooie and Tooie, DKC 1-3 and DK64, Cave Story, LoL (once in awhile), some MMORPG's every once in awhile.

I also play alot of games on Steam.

Finally came out of lurking so I thought this would be a good topic to start off in :D

Besides the n64 zelda games, off which I just dusted off my skills after not playing for 2 years (luckily the tricks discovred in that time arent that hard) I'm also playing La Mulana, Touhou, Jamestown: Legend of the lost colony, Shikigami no Shiro II and III. When I'm done with my exams my annual Mother 2 and 3 playthroughs will commence :D
