  • Thanks to the Mario Kart Wii community for having an incredible scene. Absolutely could not have done it without them. The following people should be particularly credited for helping greatly with research: Blaze: Braixen: cf: Ejay: Jellopuff: Malleo: Additionally, I had a small group of people help me with my first Mario Kart Wii video a couple years ago. The following two people helped me immensely: MrBean35000vr: SwordofSeals: I’ve loved covering the community in the two videos I’ve made so far, and hope to make more down the road as these players break the game even more!

  • lmao just a few days after this video, new discoveries on Koopa Cape was made which made it possible 3/3, and much easier and faster for RTA

    lol oklol okHour ago
  • Focusing too much on TAS runs makes for a boring video , people overcoming flaws and pushing through (along with your amazing narration and editing) was what made me love your videos, this one was still good , just trying to give some feedback, too much TAS, it was a big negative for me, maybe it’s just me tho :) Anyways , keep on making amazing videos! Looking forward to the next one

  • if only you had waited a few more days to post this. Another alternative Koopa Cape ultra method was discovered about 5 hours ago. The new method was done about half an hour ago by Justin, setting a new wr.

  • Another amazing video. Thank you for all your hard work. Now lets talk about a FFX progression video. Dang that would be awesome. I mean come on how you gonna ignore a game that involves killing the final "bosses" by throwing money at them.

  • Great to see so many viewers all watching a compilation of the MKW speedrunning community, shows there are still people that genuinely enjoy the sight of the game, its speedrunning community, and of course, you the creator of this amazing content and the indirect motivation for these speedrunners to continue their efforts in creating new speedruns with your videos hitting millions of views.

  • What the community did is insane, but how SummoningSalt presents all of this is just as beautiful. The way you present the information, plan out your words, the music, the images, they all paint such a beautiful picture that is easy to follow and yet exciting to witness. I can't imagine if you're only doing this as a hobby - you're ridiculously talented as a video director. Thank you so much for showing us the story of these wonderful people and their amazing dedication.

  • It's pretty simple. I don't do speed runs. It's never interested me. But summoning salt is able to piece together a storyline that is compelling to watch and listen to. I can't stop bingeing on his videos and pretty much a top tier documentarian that allows even the most disinterested party get invested into the videos. What can I say? I see a summoning salt video, I click.
