  1. Summoning Salt

    Summoning Salt10 days ago

    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!

    do you think it's reasonable for someone to eventually be able to do the one shroom no respawn on Laps 1+2 and the respawn with the third shroom on lap 3? 3/3 no respawn seems out of the question

    Ngl, the moment when he said he was pretty close when he said "author" made me mark out so hard at the end. Just amazing storytelling and setup to make the payoff as grand as it really was. Can't help but feel so proud of the people who made these feats possible through incomparable dedication to their craft.

    8:50 the name 'SwareJonge' means something like criminal. In this context 'zware' is Dutch for 'tough'. 'Jongen' means 'guy'. I guess cheating is in his nature! The way it's pronounced in the video is quite funny, but I'll admit Dutch is an idiot language..

    I enjoy seeing/hearing these speedrunning stories unfold, but these videos honestly feel like they're generated by an AI or something -- each videos feels exactly like the last (music, editing, pacing, speech patterns and inflections, phrases, etc.) If it ain't broke don't fix it I guess, but it also makes these videos very predictable and hard to watch in succession. Good video nonetheless.

    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.
