8-Bit Steve

The topic for this episode is Zips & Skips. We discuss the different types of Zips and skips along with other methods and terminology inside the speed-run community. Ian and Steve pull from their own experiences and knowledge and we find out just how broad the term "skip" is. 

Our featured game for this episode is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES. We discuss our thoughts on the game when it was released, tell some stories about ourselves involving the game and also dive into the infamous dam section. 

Our featured guest for this Episode is Skunky48. Skunky48 holds the Any% speed-run world record for the featured game along with most of the other categories on the leader board. We talk about his start in speed-running, a crazy blindfolded run that he did, and also his interest in wild guns on the SNES.
