8-Bit Steve

The speed-run topic for this game is Button Mashing. We talk about our own experiences, the dangers of mashing fast, and the tools you can use to improve your abilities. We also talk about the legacy of pressing the the buttons fast and how its shaped the stigma of current world records.

Our featured game for this episode is Contra on the NES. What really needs to be said about this game? Its in the top 10 of almost any list you can find and it still holds up as one of the best games on the console.

Our guest for this episode AngryLanks. He holds the world record in almost every category for this game and he discusses his own origins as well as his connection  to this game. We also discuss button mashing with him as that is an element of the Contra records.
