What's the most impressively autistic thing you've seen done in video games?
I think it's pretty interesting to watch how the game works and how it can be abused
really, the journey is more important than the actual goal
reaching incredibly high numbers of speed and travelling to parallel universes of the map sounds way more interesting than 'I got that star with half a jump'
>slamming on that floating, rotating block
>PU, quad PU
>defacto speed & synching speed
>25 hours to get to 2nd synch speed
>6 triangles with decreasing slopes
>slopes, quarter steps
>just to half A course 6
This is so fucking stupid and autistic I swear to god nobody gives a flying fuck
What are you talking about? This is the same level of autism. Speedrunners break down jumps and movements to numerical values. They spend so much more time doing technical bullshit like this.
Are speech impediments common on the autism spectrum? I notice a lot of them (including the one in OP's link) slur their words together or just don't pronounce certain syllables/letters.
The guy in OP's video never says "Scuttlebug", he just says Skullbug or some variant.
>What's the most impressively autistic thing you've seen done in video games?
My answer is so off the spectrum that I can't even narrow it down to one single thing. So i'll just answer with one word: Ullililia.
Wow, this is really impressive.
When I played Halo (or was it Halo 2?), I grew attached to this one marine, so I babysat her through a very long stretch of the game and made sure she doesn't die.
>that just seems standard Super Mario 64 abuse, don't see what the deal i-
>"You might ask why do I need so much speed. After all I build speed for 12 hours. But to answer that, we need to talk about parallel universes."
>when he bounces on the scuttlebug after dimension warping
I FUCKING CAN'T
I'M NOT WORTHY
I may be autistic, but your fucking retarded. What about freezing cheese, bread, and tomatoes magically gets rid of the grease that would be there normally? Tell me, I'm curious.
/v/ thinks they're allowed to call people autistic
You mean "you're" fucking retarded.
>What about freezing cheese, bread, and tomatoes magically gets rid of the grease that would be there normally?
The freezing part. It has to be cooked to release grease.
holy shit his pen+paper equations for goomba clusters
i love this man
People call this autism, but the guy actually found a way to play a video game that's challenging, mentally stimulating, and constructive. I honestly envy him for being this self-motivated.
Fire Emblem: Awakening...
>Grinded max stats for every unit + Limit Breaker
>Grinded every units skill pool + DLC skills
>Grinded all possible supports
Did it all a second time because I wanted a different name for my Avatar
It kept me busy.
Played fallout 3 with adventure mod (3 hit kill) and didn't die for 10 hours by stealthan and keeping vigilant and choosing engagements.
First ever run through of fallout vanilla I didn't die until just after getting past the army checkpoint
I like no death runs
How can one give so much shit about Super Mario 64 is beyond me.
I mean, it's a great game and I loved it when I was a kid, but holy shit I don't even find it an interesting speedrun title.
>man harnesses cosmic powers and paradoxical time magic to walk up a fucking hill
Fucking A that was cool.
>see thread about a guy I like on youtube
>everyone's just bitching about how autistic it is and talking about how stupid the whole thing is
God bless pannenkoek. I wish only the best for him.
That's the pretty cool kind of speedrunner, though. Anyone have that video of that guy losing his shit after losing to the final Ganon fight in OoT? Or the one whacking his chair just because he missed a jump in a SM64 run?
chibi isn't a speedrunner
I thought it was pretty ridiculous that he spent this much time on a dumb way to play sm64, but hot damn if it isn't interesting with all the parallel universe shit
This is /v/. Any sign that someone is using mental effort causes the dudebros to lash out and call people autistic purely on reflex.
For all the memeing about dewritos and COD this thread really shows that most /v/tards are no better.
I don't know if it was autism or boredom but when I was like 14 or so I had a 10 hour trip back home after spending a week visiting grandpa and I spent at least a few hours straight just grinding rupees in link's awakening DX by doing the crane game and getting the 30 rupee item over and over again. After a few tries I had it down to a science. Bought the shovel or the bow, whatever cost like 980 rupees, and then grinded back to max again.
Pannenkoek is pretty much the most amazingly autistic guy in the world.
He probably knows every single exploit that has ever existed in Mario 64 and is determined to find even more.
Personally I respect the guy. He's dedicated himself to break SM64 in every way possible and he's doing it. I wonder if he's going to ever find a way to bring the entire game down to 0 A presses.
it's really simple anon
he's doing a self imposed challenge to see how few A presses he needs to use to complete mario 64. Sometimes simply holding a previous A press that was required earlier in the run for use later is sufficient and you don't need to press it again. He abuses this to save an a-press, thereby only using .5 of an a-press since if taken out of that context it would still be one a-press.
He doesn't though
even if he did have it at one point, all his times have been wiped
A lot of speedrunners put out bounties on what they think could be possible but they may not have the time to look for
>BUT FIRST, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT PARALLEL UNIVERSES
>glitch hunting is dead
>glitches are no longer regarded as fun game features, but "immersion breaking" and "unpolished"
Well that just ruined my night.
anon, don't glamorize glitches.
for every "build up speed for 12 hours to travel to a parallel universe" there's thousands of "well you might get stuck an inch under the floor"
Maybe one day, anon.
It seems completely impossible with the bugs that we currently know about, but maybe some point there will be a SMW-level of abuse that allows you to actively reprogram the game as you play it.
The main problem is that modern day glitches are no actually immersion breaking and shit like that. They're always actively out in the open and everyone can see it. Oldschool glitches required you to look for them. Shit like sequence breaking Super Metroid, stairsliding in SM64, so on so forth. You would never come across those in regular play, you would only see those if you're actively trying to find them.
>people are making fun of this guy for talking about parallel universes
>mfw his explanation makes perfect sense
No I say, it is everyone else that is crazy.
I'm entirely convinced anybody mocking the guy in OP is either retarded or just memeing.
I mean say what you will about the amount of time/effort put into putting this together but he explains everything pretty well and it's really easy to follow along with, if you actually watch the video.
>You might ask why do I need so much speed. After all I build speed for 12 hours. But to answer that, we need to talk about parallel universes.
Is this the quote of the fucking year already?
This is really interesting.
I know this guy's channel has lots of other stuff but is there anyone who does similar stuff complete with detailed, semi-autistic explanations about other games?
Listening to some autist talk about the wacky programming glitches he's exploiting in Ocarina of Time sounds like a fun way to spend my Thursday night.
>in the year 2047, analysis of Mario 64 will have progressed so much it's widely recognized in the scientific community as a standard to understand FTL speed and warp time travel
>physic class consist now of watching an overweight italian man vibrating through walls while yelling "YAHOO" "YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAHOO"
I wonder if devs didn't ever specifically leave in certain glitches, especially Bungie. Halo 2 had a lot of easter eggs you could only reach by exploiting glitches, and apparently there are super bounces even in the newest halos.
Once this baby reaches 470 000 speed...
You're gonna see some serious shit.
There's a point where something becomes so autistic it's actually fascinating. I don't know what drove this man to do all of this but that was still pretty fucking amazing.
I'm still not going to call it a half A press.
>Watch the video wanting to know about the deal of half A press
>ended up getting a lecture about physics and parallel universes on Mario64
Holy shit, what an inefficient method of teaching
I just remembered how DSS marathoned his first playthrough of Sonic Boom
10 hourson stream and right afterwards he started glitch hunting and found the Knuckles infinite jump within the hour.
finding out you can go sanic speed in half life 2 was great. Just step on a physics object, trick the game into thinking your in a walking state by flipping the grounded switch and then applying insane momentum with no air friction
OoT has a lot of glitches with videos on youtube. Nothing absurd like the OP, but you can basically glitch your way through the entire game (sans Ganondorf/Ganon fight) without ever doing a single dungeon.
Oblivion had some pretty fun glitches
>looting Uriel, summons (including your evil clone summoned by that one staff), and essential NPCs
>permanently equipping an infinite number of rings
>permanent, fully-functional Bound equipment
>exponentially stacking Weakness to Magic and using it to buff yourself/horse/summons to go so fast that it crashes the game
And that's without even getting into things like map escapes. It's a shame that nobody ever found a way to get the Mythic Dawn gear.
I don't think that 100% knife only is possible, as there are a few parts where you need to use your gun to shoot down drawbridges and shit. Unless someone has found some new tricks to get around those parts that I don't know about.
Well, I maxed out the coins in NSMB and learned how to get through all the game mirrored...I had too much free time while on the bus, and at that time I liked to sit next to the window, the DS screen reflected on the window.
People probably thought I was doing blind speed runs.
>There's a software package called 'SM64 Diagnostic'.
Persona 3 FES Mandatory Battles. Completed the bad end and reached the final boss but could not beat the final boss because it is not possible on Normal mode.
The only way it will be possible is if I ever find out how that one guy managed to glitch out the boss to only attack once every turn. Not only does it make the fight a cakewalk but it bypasses Nyx's ultimate move and makes the 4th(?) phase possible. If I ever find out I do plan to remake it because I still have some of my documentation.
>you can skip to ganon's tower as young link if you beat the deku tree boss, walk to the corner of the room, catch and release bugs with a bottle, do 8 backflips, then play the ocarina while doing the 8th backflip to land on the portal, and then walk up to the door with exact timing
Some of these glitches sound like the biggest crock of bullshit I've ever heard.
I have a friend that imposes weird challenges on himself for whatever reason.
He completed Ocarina of Time without using any swords save for the final slash on Ganon.
He completed Minish Cap without picking up hearts or using healing items.
He completed Dead Rising using only kick moves (jump kick, knee drop, somersault kick, and roundhouse)
This is the end of autism. Nothing will ever, EVER be autistic as this video. Jesus christ HOW MUCH CAN YOU EVEN CARE ABOUT MARIO
These days I tend to arbitrarily impose challenges on myself just for the hell making games more interesting.
>solo/no grind clears for party-based RPGs that let you get away with it
>melee only in games where melee is non-standard
>never stop holding forward in platformers
You'd think my degree in theoretical physics would have helped me understand this
not at all
I've done several challenge runs of games just because I was bored. One that I still want to go back and complete is the DaS magic-only run but THOSE FUCKING CRYSTAL GOLEMS WON'T LET ME GET THE MAGIC BOOSTING ITEMS
For some reason most modern glitches just fall along the lines of "the game crashes and you lose all your save progress", or "fatal error, this won't run at all so fuck you".
I guess all the fun map-based glitches disappeared as 3d maps became more polished.
>there's a glitch that exists in SM64 that nobody has figured out
>there's a $1000 reward for whoever can replicate it
Well /v/, are you a bad enough dude to singlehandedly rip apart the SM64 TAS community and revolutionize currently known strategies?
What part of "theoretical degree" don't you understand?
So the N64 would actually crash if you were to exploit this knowledge in the actual game?
As interesting as this shit is, it's still Tool Assisted fuckery that cannot be applied in a legit playthrough.
The amount of precision required for this is completely impossible to execute in real life, let alone you actually needing to be doing this for TWELVE. FUCKING. HOURS.
It's just cool to watch and learn about, not everything needs to be practical.
It works on console but in the actual 'run' his camera will be locked before jumping to another PU. Everything works fine after that as long as he keeps the camera locked.
The only thing you can't do is have an unlocked camera which is there for our convenience so we can conceive what is happening. In the actual run it's boring because we'll just be literally staring at a wall and some water.
That was probably a freak accident when his N64 had an electrical hiccup. Considering people are probably using emu tools to replay the same sequence of events thousands of times at pinpoint precision, only adjusting a single point on a single variable each time, someone would have found it by now if it were just a simple superbounce.
>Status: The bounty is currently unclaimed and still up for grabs.
He has 100+ videos over a span of 5 years and has done countless research over the span of those 5 years with a large community.
He likes mario and wants to see how far it can be pushed.
Holy shit, that was fucking awesome.
This isn't merely autistic, this is Divinely autistic.
If you don't admire this guy, you're probably a nigger. There's just no way to not be full of respect for him.
>But first we have to talk about parallel universes
The only memory I have from Oblivion is finally clearing every oblivion gate I could find on the map and going back to my house in anvil. I wanted to place one of the sigil stones on the table but i accidentally dropped all 60 of them. The vibrating sound they make magnified so loudly my speakers fell off my desk and the game crashed
Von Neumann was probably just like him, except instead of SM64 it was engineering.
>you will never be a talented and passioned autist
How does shitposting on a Taiwanese Internet Story-Sharing website advance anything aside from advancing you away from the nearest vagina.
He chooses to waste his time speedrunning games, we waste our time here.
action games and even rhythm games use releasing buttons as a special command
In good games pressing buttons can have up to many variations: tapping, pressing, holding, releasing and sometimes double tapping -- each doing separate actions.
>this video game isn't hard, it's just time consuming
>this boss is easy, you just need to know all the patterns by heart
>heart surgery isn't heart, you just need a decade or two of education and experience
>becoming a concert pianist isn't hard, you just need to start playing when you're 5 years old and keep on practicing for 8 hours a day for the rest of your life
I wonder what /v/ would consider hard.
>to complete this mario 64 level we first have to talk about parallel universes
i dont know anymore
Anon I don't think you get it. People like the guy in OP aren't some kind of crazed geniuses that could solve world hunger or cold fusion if only they applied themselves elsewhere. They know their shit about, in this example, Mario 64 because they care about it. If they didn't give a shit about those "real" problems they wouldn't put in nearly as much effort to solve them since it doesn't interest them.
It's better to have this kind of knowledge put to use for something "useless" than to not have it used at all.
