On August 8th, 2015 Sebastien took on the four challenges of the Old-Schooled Intermediate round. Here’s how he did.
Sebastien came in and gave it his all on his run, but the convoluted paths in Metroid and the difficulty of the other challenges proved to much for him, putting an end to his Old-Schooled hopes for this season. We look forward to seeing him back again in Season 2. The twitch video of the run can be viewed by clicking the date link above.
On November 17th, 2014 Sebastien Veland logged his trial for Season 1 of the Old-Schooled League at ThatGameStore when he took on the four challenges for the Beginner round. Here’s how he did.
Sebastien’s stand out performance this far into the league was Ms. Pac-Man where he logged the highest score yet at 22,220. He also claims the fastest defeat of the boss of the Eastern Palace, quickly dispatching the last red knight with the bow and arrow before it’s new attack pattern could even begin. His run through also had a stark reminder of just how harsh retro games can be when in Sonic & Knuckles the game refused to acknowledged he jumped into the spinning wire drum because he had jumped a pixel too high when entering it, plummeting Sonic to his death.
Sebastien “Slave2TheBox” Veland will be taking on the Old-Schooled challenge tomorrow November 17th at 6PM. Sebastien has previously participated in the 17th and 16th Old-Schooled tournaments where he placed 5th in both of the qualifying rounds. His best performance from the two tournaments was from the 17th tournament in Crack Down for the Sega Genesis where he came in 2nd place with a score of 61,900 points. Tomorrow we’ll see if his training has paid off enough to secure himself a spot in the Intermediate Round.
You can come see him play live at That Game Store in person or watch him on twitch.tv at Furluge’s and That Game Store’s channels! Since this is a live event and some setup time is needed the broadcast might not start until 6:30PM, so please be patient.
