The topic for this episode is Tool Assissted Speedruns. We discuss the importance of this area as it helped to grow the speedrunning community and its current effect on the landscape.  You can find out more about TAS at http://tasvideos.org/

Our featured game for this episode is Skyblazer on the SNES. Steve and Ian both believe this to a hidden gem on the system in every sense of the word and we discuss all the great aspects of the game including its use of the infamous mode 7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_7

Our featured guest for this Episode is Omnigamer. Omnigamer holds the world record for Skyblazer and is the Author of speedrunnings first book called "Speedrun Science". We discuss the game itself, TAS, and his background and involvement with Dragster on the Atari 2600 as it relates to Todd Rogers.
