And yeah, there are emu advantages all over the place, we've never seen that as reason to disallow things before. And yes, save-stating before a run is legal, just not *during* a run. If I had to trigger various glitches or obtain shields in S3&K before each run... *shudder*
I was more saying that it's an argument as to why people would prefer it not become a rule, because of being incredibly tedious. Of course doing that in other runs would be fine, but this one is a little too long for console users, ya know? That means that some may complain or use it as an argument. Like I said, since it's not as easily backed as other arguments, I'm neutral. I moreso just wanna point out that some people may have this argument.
