Thanks to TheAxeMan and Gyre, this Final Fantasy TAS played by TASBot has the best commentary we've had to date. For once we had a major event run long enough to explain the mechanics of the game, how a Tool-Assisted Speedrun is made, how the TAS and RTA communities support one another and cross-pollinate, and how Final Fantasy can be bent to our will. This run was flawless and is what we hope to achieve every major event.

TheAxeMan authored this Final Fantasy "4 white mages" run initially at http://tasvideos.org/2015M.html and adapted it for console verification to remove all resets. We worked with Ownasaurus to build a new replay device compatible with micro500's visualization boards and used a script from TheMas3212 to play back this run. Much credit goes to the team that supported this effort.

RPG Limit Break is a yearly week-long marathon raising money for NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The donations given during this run benefit their fantastic cause which you can find more information about at https://NAMI.org and I can't thank them enough for what they do. It was an honor to help raise money for this fantastic charity. The content of this video was posted with the permission of RPG Limit Break staff and is a high quality local encoding.

The promo for the drive can be found at https://up-tube.com/upvideo/rx-7W0DBLsN and we are thankful to everyone who helped get us to RPG Limit Break in style. Simulated engine sounds at the beginning of this video are for your amusement.

[TAS] Genesis Sonic 3D Blast Our best TASBot commentary yet: 1 day ago   38:15

This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3957M.html. TAS originally published on 2019-05-10.

Sonic 3D Blast is an isometric platformer/collectathon by Traveler's Tales for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. While visiting Flicky Island, Sonic notices that the Flickies, his small, feathered friends that can travel between parallel worlds, were captured and turned into badniks (the robot enemies of Sonic) by Dr. Robotnik in his never-ending quest for the Chaos Emeralds. Seven levels separate Sonic from the final showdown with Robotnik.

the0nlykyd collects all Chaos Emeralds and gets through the final fight, thus getting the good ending, in record time.
