Uh, that's the first time I've ever seen anyone beat Marble Madness...assuming that was indeed the end.

Hmmm, there were a few shortcuts he did that I didn't know about. The way he finished Ultimate was sick.

I don't know...is it a lot harder doing it with the rolling ball thing than it is using an NES pad? I've beaten that without dieing several times...not that fast, but i haven't played it all that much either (since i beat it without dieing that is!)

Marble Madness was the reason I got an Amiga (ok, the reason I that propelled me to beg that slight bit extra to my parents to get one). I loved that game. I didn't know about that last shortcut in the Ultimate Race; I wondered why he was hanging around the top there for so long.

There's definitely a greater degree of technique required to do what he did on the arcade version. Using a d-pad it's way easier to change your current momentum, where with the track ball, it's a huge effort. You saw him using two-hands, which is honestly something I've never seen done before. To be able to pull off all those moves so accurately while slapping the ball around with both hands takes a lot of skill.

The biggest question is how he did that without pinching the shit out of his hands.

I'd imagine the 215,860 score is when he didn't die even once.
I applaud his machine-like perfection while simultaneously shuddering at the amount of time he's spent getting that good.

Looks fake. I would believe it more if it wasnt a direct feed capture of the gameplay..

edit: at 2:00, the ball suddenly flash-rewinds. This is tool-assisted bs.

Gravity is opposite on that level ("Everything you know is wrong!"), so that movement was totally normal. Sorry.

I played the shit out of this on the Apple II using an analog stick. This is probably one of the first games I actually beat. :o Most stuff I played before that were games where you'd just go for a high score.

I play all the levels in the game as fast (or in one case, faster) than the OP, but the last level, I never knew about that final shortcut. I only ever beat it once.

Holy crap. I mean, I was sufficiently impressed during the first three minutes, then they shift to ludicrous speed, then he becomes one with the matrix.
