Note: I know that Lolo De Puzlo made his own Race thread back in April 2017, but that currently only promote his races he was doing over on his server and to my knowledge is currently on hiatus with his race series and instead moved onto the Ranking Of Shmups series. The thread has not been updated since April 2017.
This thread however will be used to promote a multitude of races taking places over on a few different servers, which I will explain momentarily and will be updated periodically or I’ll try to anyways.
(dijon du jour also suggested to me that this was where this thread best belongs, so yeah, while it isn’t 100% about streaming, that is just how the majority of us record our footage and is also a way to introduce people intreseted in racing into joining our many race groups and communities. New members are always welcome!)
Have you ever thought video games were a mistake?
If not, you’ve never tried racing a video game over the internet with a group of 5 other nerds all talking simultaneously at once.
Originally starting over in a Discord community I’m no longer a member of, these races have since branched off into a multitude of servers, however I will only be covering the ones I am actively a part of as well as my own series of races. Let’s go over them:
Terrorible Tuesdays: Hosted by Terror Van over on his Discord server Terrorcord. As the name suggests, these take place on Tuesdays at 8 PM EST and are races of bad retro games, ranging from the NES to Genesis era.
Thanks Wobbly Python for designing the Terrorible Tuesday logo
Spraceshus: Races that I host myself over on my Discord server The Splash Zone (which is no longer open to the public). These take place every other Friday at 10 PM EST, a bi-weekly event. Typically these are either Steam games or harder to emulate games requiring participants to need to be able to use more powerful emulators like Dolphin, demul or Project64 to compete, though I do intend to also do easy to emulate games as well that use BizHawk or RetroArch at some point. The game we race for Spraceshu is voted on by the community on my Discord server.
Falconeering Fridays: Races held by our friend CaptainFalconXNess, now hosted on The Splash Zone. These take place the Friday a Spraceshu does not, meaning it is a bi-weekly event, or on a specified date and time set prior by Falcon himself. They are a bit more sporadic in terms of the games we race, covering numerous platforms.
- Super Monkey Ball 2
- Sonic Adventure 2 Hero Campaign
- Sonic Adventure 2 Dark Campaign
- Super Mario 64
- Pac Man World 2
Falconeering Fridays/Bonus Races:
I’ve got many videos still to work on for this race series and will be trying to get more and more finished and released periodically over the next few weeks, it’s hard work honestly and is rather time consuming. Be sure to check back for updated posts and content!
These races will be uploaded to my YouTube channel Sprasshu, the more views they get, the more entitled I will be to upload them and update this thread.
