Legitimate Heartbreaker.
I was 4 missiles away from killing motherbrain with 5 in the chamber.
Sub 30 is very doable.
Next time...

Re: Metroid Speedruns

Had a few runs on Saturday at a new path without Varia/Screw Attack. It's tough but doable. I was on some really fast times but died twice in Tourian when I didn't get any missiles from the Metroids. I'll get it down soon though. Excited to see what the time is.

Re: Metroid Speedruns

Shaving a quarter of your time off in just over a week is amazing. There's still a few little things that can save time, but a lot of it is RNG. I'm not sure on what the best time is on this type of run without glitches, but I reckon you would push it. https://www.speedrun.com/metroid_nes#All_Bosse...

Live on the stream last night.
We can go quicker with this route, but not much.
I fancy trying sub 36 then move on to a different path.

Bad luck on the Varia suit but a solid time overall.
New Kraid strats and a great ending really helped.

Re: Metroid Speedruns

I watched some of the recent stream and it was devasting some of the bad luck you were getting at times. The RNG was really unfair. Sub-40 next time, I'm sure of it! Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I'm not a fan of glitches being part of speedruns. I know a lot of these take skill to perform, but it's...

Re: Metroid Speedruns



Had a few decent runs, including my final one in which I got to Motherbrain and ran out of missiles, missing the kill by one shot.

We'll get it next time!

Re: Metroid Speedruns

Nah. The category I'm playing (deathless/all bosses) is in 18 minutes and uses loads of door glitches, which I do think are cool but feel a bit game breaky to me. I want to do sub 40 Varia Suit and then see how low we can go without it. Should be a lot of fun. Glory or insanity awaits... Why not Al...
