  • Thanks to the Mario Kart Wii community for having an incredible scene. Absolutely could not have done it without them. The following people should be particularly credited for helping greatly with research: Blaze: Braixen: cf: Ejay: Jellopuff: Malleo: Additionally, I had a small group of people help me with my first Mario Kart Wii video a couple years ago. The following two people helped me immensely: MrBean35000vr: SwordofSeals: I’ve loved covering the community in the two videos I’ve made so far, and hope to make more down the road as these players break the game even more!

  • Man, I still remember the first shortcut I found way back on the N64. The only way to play Mario Kart 64's Rainbow Road is to make the leap across.

  • This video took me forever to watch, I had to take multiple breaks. Wether it due to a lack of interest in Mario Cart or the fact that the video had so many TAS in it, it was a struggle to watch the entire thing. However the amount of passion that could be felt in the video felt genuine and I love that, it’s great seeing Salt work so hard on a project has big as this. Regardless this video was a struggle to get through, but what is Greta about this video is that it should be a while until he makes another Mario Cart vid so I’m excited to see what Salt makes next.

  • Not to take away from the TASer's work and time put into technique R&D but I feel like if a "shortcut" isn't humanely possible it shouldn't be considered a real one until it is.

  • snoop has to be a transvestitesexual there's just no way a natural-born-vagina chick would give any interest into committing to such a specific subculture. all speedrunners and TAS players are men, at least, all the contributors. as in, they were born with penises and no ovaries.
