    When you say "Boomer" Do you mean the generation? Because you can't be a Boomer at 30 1964 was the last year for boomers. 30 is Gen Y.

    • MellowJelly

      yeah he's actually a milennial, i don't know why he calls himself boomer but it might be a joke about him being "old" or having the personality of a grandpa at times. lol

    I think an endless run or two with some roulette to round out the episode is a great compromise!

    So "hot course roulette" isn't really a roulette, right? Because NL always plays the one with the most plays. Or am I just seeing things lol?

    If NL crunched 100s of Magikarp in Pokemon GO, then he would have a Gyarados. Catching 100 Magikarp and transferring them all would get you 400 Magikarp candy, enough to evolve Magikarp to Gyarados.

    egg does not get percentages lol. "9 percent, 9 out of 1000" nvm in episode 40 Austin's level he said 0.16% was 1.6/1000 which is correct

    you are not a boomer at 30 lmao, your gen z

    • MellowJelly
      MellowJelly Month ago +3

      he's milennial, but that's why the title is "30 year old boomer" not just "boomer." He's calling himself a 30 year old with the mentality of a boomer

  • SamuraiFoochs

    I find speedruns absolutely awful. The one that ended the endless run was ugh. The problem is that a huge percentage of NL's endless runs are derailed by speedruns, which by their very nature involve a lot of trial and error.

    • Johnathon Abbott
      Johnathon Abbott Month ago +2

      The funny thing is, NL almost exclusively enjoys speedrun levels and hates puzzle levels or anything "too easy" for him

    • Hank Hill
      Hank Hill Month ago

      Many people have said it before, but it would be a great idea to add a speeding difficulty for all levels less than 100 seconds. That way it doesn't ruin endless.

    • Moises Cruz
      Moises Cruz Month ago +1

      @SamuraiFoochs yeah skipping in Endless is free, he should do it more often if he really wants a better score.

    • SamuraiFoochs
      SamuraiFoochs Month ago +2

      @Moises Cruz They should really have a speedrun slider in endless. Or NL should skip which he never ever will.

    • Moises Cruz
      Moises Cruz Month ago +3

      You're not wrong about the trial and error, however that is the state of affairs in Endless right now. Every third level is a 20s speedrun.

    I don’t understand this chain chomp part. Dies. Falls into a double boss battle “yeah this is more my speed” after playing a level where he basically says Putin’s a boss in a level is bad design. Your bitching and complaining about every aspect of every level instead of just having fun commentary is confusing the shit out of you. This shit gets worse by the day

    • Johnathon Abbott
      Johnathon Abbott Month ago +2

      @Taylor Callizo you are confused good sir. We don't care if he shoots himself in the foot in pubg or Mario. We care when he is hypocritical even between stages of one video about what he wants. Nothing is ever his perfect level. People watch NL for his commentary, and his Mario commentary is a complaint track on repeat

    • Taylor Callizo
      Taylor Callizo Month ago +3

      funnier by the day you mean. why do you guys all watch him expecting good gameplay? his floundering through games is the absolute best part of NL. Pissy NL is hilarious

      no way, the innitial town segment with the puzzle that kills you if you grab a coin is something nintendo would never do

    I remember when he hated Superball puzzles, it might be the music but hes digging it now.

    • IamI3rian
      IamI3rian Month ago +7

      He never owned a Gameboy, so he had no idea how to actually use the fireballs at first.
      He's the ultimate hipster. He hates things (like anime, for example) until he actually tried them, then realized that there's a reason most people like them.

      He often has other chats open like Kate's. In an adorable way they tell each other stuff through it like a few days ago Kate told him via twitch chat to turn the AC on lol

      @IamI3rian disliking something is not toxic xD pressing a button that causes the level to have worse reputation just for the sake of one's opinion, that's moreso toxic

    • IamI3rian
      IamI3rian Month ago +8

      He doesn't wanna be toxic, so he figures it's better to just be _actually toxic._

      @IamI3rian you're deluded. It's your prerogative to watch his content. You've even said in this comment section that you aren't entertained by him anymore. Go somewhere else. You're not wanted here.

    • IamI3rian
      IamI3rian Month ago +3

      @The Phoenix I'm trading my time for his entertainment. Without me (and all of us) watching NL wouldn't be a millionaire.

    "Can you get Bowser Jr to spin off the edge?"
    Nope, he is programmed to stand up before he falls off the edge.

    He had a spare key and chose to fight the bowser 😂

      @Rixor12 100%, seems like they put that section in and planned to put more obstacles and gave up lol

    • Rixor12

      @Dip Still, snake section would be better off removed than having a checkpoint to compensate

    • Dip
      Dip Month ago +10

      I'd agree with him on putting another checkpoint, having to just mindlessly stand there for a minute is just filler content for a level that doesn't need to be repeated imo.

      pretty sure that door connect with the one in the middle of the screen *ie* a reset door.

      @yewwowduck You need to pace the jumps a bit, but you can get ahead of the curve easily. I think NL just got a bit overwhelmed. I don't get why, but I can't blame him.

      @Alec Tong i agree with the OP, sometimes NL finishes a 15 second section of a level and asks for a checkpoint

    • IamI3rian
      IamI3rian Month ago +2

      @Alec Tong it does when you've stood still for the last thirty seconds.
      NL wants checkpoints and endless mushrooms, he whines about them in almost every episode.
