This episode's topic is frame rule. We attempt to dissect this dense, often misunderstood topic as it pertains to games like Super Mario Bros and Castlevania.

Our guest this episode is Kosmic, world record holder of one of the most competitive and optimized games in retro speedrunning, Super Mario Bros. We further discuss the topic of frame rule with him and pick his brain on the ridiculously precise inputs and tricks that made his record possible. We also talk to him about other games that he runs outside of the mario franchise.

We did our best to explain frame rule, but it's a very difficult topic to get across verbally. Below are some links that do a great job of making frame rule clearly understandable.
