    Exactly. How the heck didn't he notice that?
    Also, for your next game, would you like to try Super Mario 63?

    eh, i think it's pretty fair to say that the game relies heavily on backtracking and confusion, which is not good game design.

    regardless, i want to point out that zelda's not a great candidate for "let's play" in the first place, unless the player is pretty familiar with the puzzles / game progression and is engaging enough for it not to be boring that they already know how to solve the puzzle.

    i mean, imagine "let's play lemmings."

    narrator: "hmmm... what the fuck do i do? maybe i'll use a climber. huh..." [game is paused for a full 5 minutes] "i should try some blockers..." [narrator tries a failed strategy; takes 10 minutes]. "shit, what do i do..."

    elementia was a perfect game for let's play. super mario crossover is too, actually. hopefully jay will find a good fit if he does another one.

    You mean something like this? (Shameless plug) I was thinking of recording an entire play through of this game after seeing Jay's first segment of his Lets Play and that right there is the first segment of my playthrough. I find the sound of my voice isn't very good/clear so I might end up adding annotations to the videos rather then speaking over the game. (Or just not add anything to the videos except in the description under them...)

    You'll notice once I enter the Guardhouse I changed some settings in the emulator, first I switched from a 5:4 aspect ratio to a 4:3 ratio and then I turned off the HQ4x video filter. If you prefer the filter staying on I can leave it on as I prefer it turned on, I only turned it off as I realize some people won't like how it makes stuff appear.

    I don't intend to detract from Jay's work with my post here, if he thinks it does then feel free to either move my post to a separate thread or delete it all together.

    ...or maybe SMBc v2.0 would work for his next LP, and yes, I know he did v1.0/v1.1 (Swiched half way through). Because, the game is ALOT different now.... I don't know, just an idea.

    I... just... what? I don't even...

    Okay so I take it back, I am completely no longer angry or annoyed with you ending your run here. Just be thankful you never encountered the 2nd dungeon :O as it has an early miniboss that is just insane and it respawns if you die in the dungeon and resume! I had to rely heavily on save states for that section of the dungeon... and I have to go through it again to reach the boss.

    Can someone link to the ROM? Not just a patch, I seem to have zero luck patching shit. :(

    I gotta try this for myself.

    It's on Vizzed.

    No one can link to the ROM as it contains code and assets copyrighted by Nintendo, the patch it self however does not.

    Private message then? :p

    edit: Wait, wait. We're going to argue the copyright thing on a forum for a game that uses copyrights from about three dozen different games... okay then. That makes total sense.

    "code and assets copyrighted by Nintendo"

    So? There's no problem with this.

    If you think cease and desist letters are shinies you need to hunt down and "collect 'em all!" then yes, you're correct that it doesn't matter and that there is no problem with distributing copyrighted materials illegally.

    Would you want to make this place a hot spot for people to download Nintendo property and attract Nintendo's attention to this website?

    Nemephosis Level 6: Lakitu

    Just curious, but what game exactly does this site host again? I seem to have forgotten!

    I haven't seen a single website that specifically hosted roms - as in, they were uploaded directly to the website, a website dedicated to serving copyrighted material freely - get shut down or attacked in any way. The worst I've ever seen happen is that the website has a few rom pages which are now dead-ends.

    Nobody will come to this place, of all places, to try to take down a link a user posted if they're not even looking at the rom hosting websites!

    All right, so with that out of the way, would someone mind please linking to the prepatched .SMC rom for me instead of arguing? That'd really be great.

    Nemephosis Level 6: Lakitu

    I found one, but thanks for all your help anyway guys, I especially like how we argued about the legality of distributing a rom on a forum for a game that uses IP from 58 fucking games (I counted them)

    did you find it by using google, like someone who isn't an idiot?

    lol, you've been a member since the end of 2010 and you have 8 posts,. Hello, obvious alt! Now it's just a matter of whose you are.

    Since he's through with Zelda, I hope Jay does a Playing my own game 2.0 series.
     
  19. Nemephosis

    Nemephosis Level 6: Lakitu

    That would be pretty cool, there's a lot of new stuff he can play around with and Jay is always funny as hell. I've laughed at some of his stuff while in a really lousy mood.

    I have suggested this also. So, I agree.
