Retro Games / Speedrunning
I go by "sYn" (sin). I stumbled upon Twitch and the speedrunning community in early 2016 looking for strategies to beat games I grew up with. My inspiration to stream comes from the many players & runners who choose to keep retro gaming alive and competitive(fun). Fueled by seltzer water, Italian food and Teddy Grahams (current addiction). You'll find me speedrunning many different games. "GET STARTED, NEVER QUIT"
Mainly weekdays after 8PM (EST/EDT). ActRaiser and Soul Blazer runs at least once per week (usually Friday and Saturday respectively). Time permitting, an [RPG playthrough a month!](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jf1am1BOEDFbDF9NcJEv9BHw8hBwYse3tyD1WKEbLAM/edit?usp=sharing)
My projects are ever changing depending on what's "hot" but here are a few that have my attention. + Secret of Evermore - Learn Run **✓** + Zelda: A Link to The Past - Learn Run + Landstalker Any% - PB w/New Route + Improve at RandoBlazer and Evermizer
With runs in over 150 games across various systems and genres the list was getting too long to keep up on this page. Notable games I've pushed are ActRaiser, NES Tetris, Soul Blazer, The Guardian Legend and varying Mario games but a complete list of runs can be found on my [speedrun.com profile page](http://www.speedrun.com/user/sYn). The NES Black Box Challenge results are [here](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gaFHK8Dvu6DTMc6IqBO5TNO3Ml2wtJkc3ZtUvNBw-S4/). Mega Man runs can be found [here](http://megamanleaderboards.net/index.php?page=runner&name=sYn).
