- Got my goal with DKC2 102%. I can maybe save another 2min from my PB, but having played on and off DKC2 since May, I rather play something else right now. I really emjoyed this speedrun, probably more than Any% tbh, and I can see myself returning to 102% in the future. God tier speedrun, but hard AF. Don't learn 102% before Any%, the difficulty is too high imo.

- For my 2018 goals, I have OoT left, so I started working on it already (Got B1 Skip learned...and thats it lol. Also FF4 is basically do a run that finishes and quit forever). Going for N64 (not VC) Glitchless Any%. Not planning going hard on this game, I'd like to just have a time that maybe sub 5 (I dunno how well I will play so I dunno) and have a fun learning experience. FF6 No Sketch will happen as well. The end-game route seems a lot more interesting for me to come back to it for a bit. I know there was no talk about it, but I rather play a route where the cutscene would play at the end, instead of just softlock. Fortunately it seems the direction routes are going right now. Will of course tinker my route as my needs and my playstyle like I always do for FF6. Using Super Balls on Tentacles is obviously a reference to Barkley.

- I kinda have a good idea on what I wanna do in 2019. Something like Wind Waker on GameCube (I'm actually really looking forward to that actually), DKC1 and DKC3 Any% (Will probably do English for sanity purpose), and probably 100% categories of games I already know like Zelda 1, LADX, Mystic Quest (LUL). Also watching Takaze yesterday made me think of learning FFT YesMath. Seems easy enough and its something cool to learn.

- My only regret in speedrunning is not streaming more and stop doing offline attempts. I can't help it it seems...

- I need a meme speedgame.

I got around getting a Framemeister for my setup, and I gotta say it is pretty awesome. Ordered a new monitor as well that has a very low input display to go with that (Model is BenQ RL2460 in case people are interested). Went for this model simply because it has a HDMI Output that has a pass-through built-in, so I basically just need a cable from my Monitor to the capture card to capture whatever is on, easier to manage and less stuff I have to plug in. I also went back using my USB3HDCAP as well and capturing everything in 1080p. Right now, my CRT is unplugged and not being used, but I will not get rid of it (at least for now). I can totally live with the 1 frame input delay that the Framemeister is outputting anyway. I am still rocking on S-Video for now, but maybe RGB in the future. I still love the simplicity of playing with my console setup with S-Video right now (1 cable to rule them all).

I will not be able to do the 12 Hour Challenge unfortunately, I have work commitments during that weekend so I will have to skip this one unfortunately....BUT that doesn't mean that won't learn a new speedgame. Current game to learn will be OoT Glitchless (Inb4 the N64/OoT hate group comes after me, aka the whole elmagus discord 8) ). The original plan was learning NoIM/WW, but I did try to learn it a couple of days ago, until I realized that OoT glitches wasn't for me. I also enjoy "playing the game" categories anyway, which is what I've been doing for the previous Zelda games. The reason I went for NoIM/WW was to get a short category, but Glitchless is not even that bad. Also I'd like to try that OoT Rando thing at some point.

Still not done with 102%, I've been lazy for the past month regarding that but I could go for another PB or two. Sub 140 is where I could probably SGQF.

Castlevania Bloodlines was awesome and everyone should play it. I've been thinking doing CV1 next Friday since I never beat it.

FF4 FE from time to time.

I watched some GameCube Wind Waker Bug Limit speedrun the other day and I wanna learn that, the hell is wrong with me.

I'm the best Roadhog player on Overwatch don’t @ me.
