I feel like an idiot for having to check gamefaqs to make sure this was an actual NES game or not.

The "about" link on the game's (un)official site is an amusing read as well, complete with manual scans and everything.

I'm glad to see Aquaria making it on this schedule (and coming up next, no less). I'm wondering with the donation condition for it being obtaining spirit form just how you can finish the game without it, but I suppose I'll see. I don't remember if any patch the game got made cutscenes skippable, but at least they aren't -too- long, and the game certainly would benefit from the exposure.
The best way I can describe the game is if Super Metroid and Ecco the Dolphin had a baby, just without Samus' suit weapons (well, mostly).

Haha, ouch, Cosmo was almost 4 minutes ahead of a run at the 4.5 hour mark, only to lose the lead entirely by skipping some rupees in the cabana, and being 4 rupees short of the 3184 he needed to decode the triforce charts, not getting it on tingle's island from the 6 pieces of grass there, and having to actually just go back to outset island to make up the difference.

Twitch really needs to get some script going that allows streamers to autoban any chat person who says "reset."
I think there's a twitch.tv feature that lets mods put certain words on censor, like how you can't say Peaches__'s name in the sunday sequence break channel from their april fools gag show. Regardless, yes, autoban would be nice. A lot of people could easily argue twitch chat is 100% useless at all times, but it is a bit disrespectful seeing people poo poo up Cosmowright's Wind Waker channel when the mods actually try to answer most questions about the game or route that's brought up.

Current pre-show topic includes Flicky discussing things to do with an overabundance of Mountain Dew, such as "Poor man's Jaegerbombs", that doesn't have Jaeger in it at all.

Mid-show edit: Holy poo poo Duckfist gave a wonderful send off to possibly the last appearance of splinterface on stream to celebrate a new TMNT4 record, as Mike Uyama has a run he is satisfied with for submission and will move on to other games.

I haven't heard of the feature before, but it turns out Youtube has tools to fix videos it considers shaky. When PJ uploaded his Mohawk & Headphone Jack speedrun using warps, Youtube recommended it's "fix" for shaky videos like so.

Last night was extra amazing because for no discernable reason Pie climbed up from his previous max of 30-something viewers to 124 viewers at one point, and every one of them was there for those brainfart moments. For as much poo poo as I was giving him in the Skype call (I'm the one they keep calling Tyrone despite that not being anywhere close to my name), I've been having a great time joking around and occasionally commentating on his runs. Pie really is doing his best to both learn the game and be entertaining for his viewers, so if you are looking for something to watch and he's online, give him a try.
Yeah, I saw his run from that Bowser fight and on from speedrunslive, and ended up following after the chaos that ensued. The guy in the chat going on about that run giving him "super cancer" and the ribbing from like 3 or more people in the skype call was what made it so hilarious, probably more so than any execution mistake itself. There's several moments but I think my favorite is Peaches "I want you to acknowledge how many people just saw that.". Definitely one of the more entertaining ways to watch someone start their speed run career.
Edit: I was the one at the end going "He's gonna wonder what all these cancer patients are doing here" when he sent the viewers to another stream.

And I haven't seen the whole new route he has, but through some sorcery or sick superswims Cosmo is 10 minutes ahead of his 5:06:35 time after getting the hookshot.

29:10, new PB, says sub 29 might be possible.
First thing I had flashbacks of when funkdoc considered sub 29 was Mike Uyama's 14:04 Sub-Terrania hard mode record that had several hysterical bloopers despite beating his old personal best of 14:07. Afterwards proceeding to blow that run out of the (stage 9) water and cut his record to 12:33. Despite all the hilarious and random deaths he's had in the game in it's history the first thing he says is "I think sub 12 is possible! Technically that was a bad stage 9!".

I'm also beginning to worry that Sub-Terrania is having a side effect on his sanity, he's starting to go into laughing fits on each of his personal bests.

Competition for that block is going to be fierce as hell this year. This game would have it's own merits for making it on the list with the one caveat being that someone has to actually play the game first, let alone try to speed run it. Good bonus material, and I'm sure Mike doesn't want to have to issue motion sickness warnings for the street on 3-1 as well. It would definitely be bonus stream material however.

It's a neat watch since it's a healthy portion of abusing the ice spell's freeze working like the same beam in Metroid. Combined with upward recoil from taking damage boosts, allows skipping a good number of stairs and climbing.

Speaking of reading out the story, we seriously need the story for Timecop during the marathon, but I would settle for the Game Over screen, if that's not already being planned as a donation incentive.
Timecop's donation incentive could be handled in the opposite direction from most. At the start of Timecop, set a donation goal (or rather, ransom) that if not met by the end of Omnigamer's estimated 30 minute run, the game over screen plays on stream for however long the next setup period is. Of course several people here would love that, it certainly can't be that tolerable for many other viewers, can it?

Dessyreqt somehow got himself stuck in the sand pit wall in Maridia, which brought his 100% run to an end.
Yeah, that's terribly unfortunate, and it happened right went I went to tab on it after the run was mentioned.



It solidified something Romscout mentioned when someone brought it up: the single most often uttered phrase during any marathon is always "This has never happened before!". Someone mentioned it should be an alternate highlight reel for AGDQ, then Romscout quickly corrected them that the highlight reel would just be the entire marathon again.

It's going to be hard for Zelda games to beat this near-disaster Cosmo encountered on one of his bingo games, however.

Edit: and while typing that, dessyreqt's had a couple bad luck strokes from the red brinstar flower room leaving him at 1 energy before he could re-farm some health, and for some reason having to fight Kraid after he gets fully out of the ground which rarely happens.

Of course Exciting Mode™ goes exactly as planned, meaning nothing went as planned at all. Tragic loop 2 surprise weapon switch to scythe replacing tri-blade from a chest that normally has armor. Stage 5 boss destroying gold armor shield while it's still in it's death explosion, even after PJ activates the invincibility glitch for the rest of the stage. Imp in stage 3 getting so mad at plan bee it destroys the bronze armor, among several other things. Also forgot the stage 7 2nd boss suddenly having an instant damaging hitbox it never has.
Archive of the run:

Edit: If you've been too rapt watching romscout's spooktacular or otherwise missed it, today's installment of the Sunday Sequence Break stream covered a couple unreleased in America NES games: Bio-Force Ape with Garrison, and SRKFunkDoc covering Holy Diver (Or "*** Diver" as it's been referred to in stream thanks to the channel's custom censor that's too funny to change).

Suspicious Dish posted:

I haven't actually watched a Paper Mario run before; does this game have any major or semi-major skips?
To add to what Sn64 mentioned, the game overall has qualities that make it a good speedrun candidate. RPGs are notorious for being very luck-based with random encounters causing you to take longer through certain areas, whereas Paper Mario you can not only see encounters but open fights with guaranteed surprise attacks where you couldn't otherwise. Most of the run also uses a badge that gives you a huge power boost that requires you to be at 1hp to activate, so there's a lot more emphasis on reacting to enemy attacks to avoid damage whereas other rpgs you just take hits and can't do anything about it. It goes a long way with the game's action command system to allow for a pretty high skill ceiling for a genre where most of the time your strategy will be "mash attack and hope it works".
Also, it says a lot for the game and iateyourpie that he's gotten so good at it in basically a month or two maybe of practicing the game with the SDA N64 crew.
It's certainly a lot better than his humble beginnings having to adapt to not being able to automatically abuse the Power Rush badge against Bowser.

That's a hell of a lot of work to keep this thing going for the 12 hours you've been running it, along with the spontaneous one-hand Mario 64 and Blast Corps and whatever else to fill in gaps for this thing. The entire bonus stream so far has been a hell of a hoot to stay up and watch, but I think you might have set a bar for stream quality a bit too high for anyone else to match.



Also, I hope there's nothing twitch could try to sue for if their chat servers end up melting into molten goop from 4000 people playing another 30minute run of Typing of the Dead.

Competition for the Mega Man 10 world record is heating up between Duckfist and Usedpizza. Usedpizza finished a 35:26.35 run today that gained 10 seconds in the Wily 4 stage to put it within less than a second of Duckfist's 35:26.18 (or 35:25 depending on timing) run that overcomes a 10 second deficit it had going into the first Wily stage to become the current record. It's pretty difficult to get the times much lower, but should make for an interesting watch over the next few days if they get into it.

That's what made tonight's blooper so great. He manned up in the smwmarathon run demonstrating the discipline he's learned from speedrunning the game over the past couple months. Then forgets all about it tonight and dies from momentarily forgetting about enemies that can kill him if he gets a first attack on them. The best part is no less than a minute before that he jokingly refutes reacting too much. "WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! I don't overreact!"
