This is my Insector X 1CC/1LC run on Hard difficulty with commentary. It was recorded using an RGB cable on a model 1 Sega Genesis and then run through a Framemeister upscaler for maximum clarity. The capture card used was an Elgato 4k60 Pro through OBS Studio at 60fps and 1080p resolution.
This run is what I would like to consider a throwback to the early days of my channel. I kept the produced segment as simple and basic as possible. I also tried to match my early style of making videos from 2014 (warts and all). This idea came about due to a friend of mine, Nefarious Wes, challenging me to attempt a 1cc of this game due to it's extreme difficulty. I accepted his challenge and after a month of practice, I managed to pull it off. Wes came along for the ride and we both did the commentary together.
One of the toughest things about Insector X is the fact that there are no shields and if you get hit once, you die. Therefore I had to play absolutely perfect in order to capture this run, where as many of the previous games I tackled, I was allowed more than one hit. All in all Insector X is a pretty solid, albeit, basic early SHMUP on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. It's worth checking out if you haven't, and if you want to try and beat it normally, it is pretty forgiving when it comes to continues and free lives.
