The 10/25 Suffering Saturday Game: Legend of the Mystical Ninja!

This past Saturday, after 4 and a half hours or so, I successfully defeated Vectorman. I’ll eventually write about it for Games I Beat In 2014, but for now it’ll suffice to say I enjoyed it more than I would, given how it started, and given I was apparently playing it wrong the whole time. …

Vote for the Second 10/4 Suffering Saturday Game!

I’m continuing to work my way through Ecco the Dolphin. No, after 12 hours of play, I still haven’t beaten it, but I have made it to the infamous Welcome to the Machine level. I even managed to complete it a few times, but I sadly died on the final boss, which meant I got …

Vote on the 9/13 Suffering Saturday!

First off, thanks to everyone who’s been voting so far. The voting totals are climbing, which makes me happy. We broke 60 votes for the first time with this past poll! This past week, I managed, with many continues, to defeat 3-D Worldrunner. I then beat it twice more instantly. So that means a new …

Vote on the 9/6 Suffering Saturday!

While it took about 3 hours, I did manage to beat Blaster Master yesterday. I didn’t manage to make it through Snake, Rattle ‘N Roll, but that’s okay. That, along with 3-D Worldrunner (Read about both of these in the previous poll post), will re-enter the voting pool. Joining them is a new challenger. Those …

Vote on the 8/30 Suffering Saturday!

So today I had a successful Suffering Saturday stream, beating both Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts and the arcade version of Ghosts ‘N Goblins. Look for writeups on those in the Games I Beat In 2014 series soon. For now, though, it’s time to vote on what game I suffer through next Saturday! Since two of …

Thoughts on Streaming Speedruns, and *GDQs

These are some thoughts that I had about streaming and the Games Done Quick marathons. On Streaming As A Skill I tend to lurk, and occasionally post on, the Twitch subreddit. A common question for awhile was “How do I get a bigger viewership?” or “What are some games I can play that can get …

Introducing the Suffering Saturday Streams!

In the last month or so, I’ve tried to come up with an actual schedule for my stream. To that end, I stream 4 days a week when I can, for anywhere from 3 to 6 hours a day. Yesterday, I tried (And failed) to beat Blaster Master on stream. Despite that the Wall2 controls …
