re: Shantae and the Seven Sirens Speedrunning 

Oh, also I definitely cannot submit this run because I took many breaks, save & quits aren't allowed, and I definitely had bad pauses and parts where it would just otherwise not be considered viable or worth it to submit.

For reference, the top run is clocked in at just under an hour IGT. So this was probably reasonable for someone doing their very first speedrun ever.

Final time - 5:06:38
IGT - 02:27:09

Overall, I had a lot of fun even though there were parts I got frustrated, and I learned a lot. This game has a really interesting balance, since the first half mainly relies on execution, but the second half relies on skips and optimally clipping out of bounds. I wish I had routed my run a bit better because the final boss really is scary without proper preparation. I know next time I will want to have at least 200 more gems than I did this time. 😅

Shantae and the Seven Sirens Speedrunning 

Your first run is always bad tbh.

1:51:27 for the route up to Chapter 4. There's probably about an hour left in the run at my current pace? depending on how quickly I can get the skips. Either way, this first one is just gonna have to be segmented because I can't sit through the entire 3 hours of learning the route in one sitting.

@Al_Goreman I use a Twitter bot to retrieve media posts from my account so I can archive them to Nextcloud and post them on here. It doesn't take too long to get one of those set up if you're code savvy.

re: (+) exercise 

@Proxy I really need to get back to playing that game regularly just hard when living in house with family

@Al_Goreman One of the easiest ways is to just make a burner Twitter account and post them there to download. I know it's not optimal, but it's free, and it's the next best thing if you don't have access to something that can read microSDs, especially if you don't wanna take the time to be ejecting it from your switch constantly.

noob questions on speedrunning 

I'm kinda wondering what the best approach to this is... Should I just start by practicing the first few chapters of the game? Should I just go for a full run right away?

@KitsuneAlicia @sobsz I think Pop_OS! might just maintain it themselves in their repos.

@KitsuneAlicia well let me see what happens when I boot up today cus I'll likely be promoted for the same update. Maybe I'm crazy.

@KitsuneAlicia what distro? Apt seems to handle updates for me just fine, but I guess that's Ubuntu being "special"
