Cool! But this probably counts as YouTube spam, because I think the mods say that you need "two paragraphs" worth of text to accompany a YouTube video in a chat.

Just for future reference.

I have made many blog posts before, all of them well-received. I have also been a Duder for many years. I have nothing but love for Giant Bomb.

@Nario: Which is why I didn't flag the post, because I could see that it was to tell people about a silly and crazy thing you did, not to advertise for a thing. I just saw the low post count and assumed more than I should have!

Won't stop a lock. This is undoubtedly an awesome gaming feat but you could include more detail about it.

Also, now do it to Dark Souls.

Dude that's fucking amazing! Seriously looking forward to seeing you play Mario 3 with it.

@MooseyMcMan: They really said 2 paragraphs? I've seen plenty of threads with about this much or less not get locked.

Posted by Nario

@MooseyMcMan: I appreciate the understanding. I've been following Giant Bomb ever since Jeff and Brad were at Gamespot. I just want to share my feats with other Duders here on Giant Bomb, just as I have shared my accomplishment of making Castlevania in Minecraft. Duders share awesome things with other Duders.

@Skyfire543: Thanks!!

@Skytylz: I saw someone say that once. I think it was a mod. I dunno! I think one paragraph is enough, but I'm not a mod! And I probably shouldn't be.

@Nario: you are a dance pad machine - I remember seeing your posts from the past much like this one.

How many of those dance pads do you have? I'd imagine they'd be worn out by now.

Posted by Nario

@JCTango: Thank you! Honestly, I only have one GameCube dance pad, and one Xbox 360 dance pad. If one of them broke, I'd have to buy one brand new to replace it! I wouldn't settle for any less, and I'm glad it hasn't come to that.

YOUR FEET ARE THE CONTROLLER!!!!! 
 
Also, hey, I remember you! Nice to see you posting again!

Posted by AlianthaBerries

You have a great on-screen personality dude and congratulations!

Posted by TurboMan

@Nario: You are a fucking legend, sir.

I will be watching your feet tonight.

I think I'm far far more impressed by the Ninja Gaiden video you link to at the end. Holy shit. I can't even beat the NES ninja gaiden with a damn controller let alone a dance pad.

Thanks for all the comments so far, Duders. I really enjoyed working on this 91 minute video, as I love Sonic and I also wanted to take a break from playing just NES games on a dance pad.

Hopefully news outlets will start covering this soon... The video's been out for over a week and none of the major sites have mentioned a lick of it.

Posted by Nario

@Demoskinos: Thanks for watching that video, too! Ninja Gaiden certainly was harder than Sonic 2, and I'm glad to know that the graphics in Sonic 2 didn't fool you from seeing that! haha! I appreciate the support!

@Nario: No worries. Rules are meant to be broken?

In other words, I won't flag you. Awesome job!
