Furious Paul's Current and Future Projects

Super Castlevania IV BoxThis page represents the projects that I am currently working on along with projects I have planned for the future.

Recently Accomplished Projects:

  • Live Gameplay Setup - I finally accomplished setting up my LIVE gaming stream at Twitch.tv as of 11-26-13!
  • Castlevania 2 - I have accomplished many amazing world record speed runs for Castlevania II Simon's Quest:  Deathless run in 38:43, Any% run in 36:52, 100% run in 45:44, and Glitchless run in 38:28.
  • Super Castlevania IV - I speedran CV4 for an average of 7 hours per day for over 1.7 years (March 2014 - October 2015) and obtained the world record speedrun time for it along with beating the game over a thousand times.  CV4 was a very fun project for me and I am glad that I finally got that sub 32 for the game. CV4 amazed me by how far it got pushed down in time since I started running it, and the challenge it gave me was crazy. I may return to speedrunning something full time in the future again, but for now I am taking a long break from speedrunning in general. I know a sub 31:50 is definitely doable for CV4 and I will continue to play CV4 as a side project, as I may do some attempts occasionally, but Overwatch is going to be my main focus now. See my full announcement for my transition to Overwatch here.

Current Project(s):

Overwatch
  • Overwatch - I got big plans for Overwatch.  I am currently on a mission to master this game.  You can watch me do this Live via Twitch.TV. I am also making strategy guides for Overwatch here on my website.
  • Super Castlevania IV - CV4 is currently a side project of mine.  I am not finished with Super Castlevania IV yet.  My current goal with the game is to get a sub 31:50 with no knockbacks and a 1cyc chandelier.  Since October 15th 2015 I have only been doing a few no reset runs per week just to stay in shape with CV4.  Lately, expect two no reset runs about twice a week on my twitch stream.  Unfortunately, at this time I have no idea on when I will be back to the WR grind, I would say not at least until 2017 though.

Future Projects:

  • MMORPG?? - I currently got no other future plans as I will be sticking to Overwatch for awhile.  In the far off distant future I would love to get into another MMORPG that is of very high quality and do speed runs through it.
  • Speedrun Super Metroid - Because why not?

Possible Future Speedrun Projects:

The games listed below are mostly classic console games I may consider speedrunning in the future:

SNES:

  • Joe and Mac - Beat the world record speed run through this game.
  • Super Mario Kart - I love this game and we will see what my personal best is at the 150cc world cup times.

    MORE SNES GAMES: The games above are high on my list to work on, but there are many more SNES games I would love to work on and speed run through sometime, and they are:
  • Super Smash TV
  • Pilotwings
  • Super Ghouls N' Ghosts
  • Donkey Kong Country 1 & 2
  • Contra III
  • F-Zero
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Star Fox
  • Street Fighter 2 Turbo
  • Stunt Race FX
  • Super Off Road

    So don't be surprised if you see any speed runs or content associated with these games by me in the future.

NES:

  • Castlevania 1 - I am looking forward to speed running this game sometime.
  • Mega Man 3 - I have a strong desire to speed run this game sometime.
  • Castlevania III -I have a goal of learning at least one route very good with this game, I'm thinking Sypha first.

    MORE NES GAMES:  There are many more NES games I would love to work on and speed run through sometime, and they are:
  • Duck Tales
  • Double Dragon II & III
  • Adventures in the Magic Kingdom

GENESIS:

  • Road Rash 3 - I have definite plans to speed run this game, and put some content out for it.
  • Road Rash 1 & 2 - Although RR3 is higher on my priority list, I also plan to do some speed runs through RR 1 & 2 sometime.
  • Streets of Rage 2 - I have played this game a lot and I might do some speed runs through this game eventually.
  • QuackShot - When I was young I had a strange desire to beat this game over and over again, so don't be surprised if you see a speed run done for it.

XBOX 360:

  • Trials HD/EVO - I have put in a massive amount of time into these games from 2008 - 2012.  We will see if I can do a speed run for these games or at least something for it sometime.
  • Defense Grid - Fun tower game I have played a lot.

PC:

  • Diablo 1 - I am looking forward to doing some speed runs through this game as a sorcerer.
  • Comanche 1 (DOS) - Who would like to finally see someone beat this game all the way through quickly? I can do it.
  • Pinball Fantasies (DOS) - Out of all the pinball games out there (real and video), this pinball game was the most fun and memorable for me.  I got really good at this pinball game, especially the Party Land game.  Look forward to seeing some high score gameplay for it.

    Other PC games that are lower on my priority:
  • Half-Life
  • Wolfenstein 3d
  • Warcraft III

The list above represents a rough guess on what I will be working on in the future.  This list is subject to change at anytime.  I will generally play whatever I feel like playing at any given time :)

And of course if there is any new game that comes out that I really want to play I will switch over to that as well, whatever that may be.

Comment below if you would really like to see me do a speed run through any of these games.  Doing so will help me put it higher on my priority list.
