They actually do a pretty good job of switching up the games year to year and I know a decent chunk of suggested games didn't get on the schedule because they've been at tons of marathons

it's still a week-long marathon though and you can't drop every game that have been run for ages, especially if they're ones that draw a ton of donations

I wonder if whatever the Yetee happened to dump on in the absence of Super Metroid would raise similar amounts.

I just rewatched the TASbot segment from AGDQ14. If this year's TASblock can even come close to matching that then I'll have everything I want from this marathon.

from what I've heard here and there it's going to be better than last year's, don't worry

There's an imp zone thread if you want to talk about dumb speedrunner drama instead of the actual speedruns and I'm sure you can make a gbs thread if you just want to say cuck over and over

I'll take about speedruns AND drama in both threads tho

I want to see blind MTPO and hear some painfully awkward poo poo happen in front of 50,000 people, it's just the best.

Is that awkward kid who would sit on the couch uninvited coming back? The one who talked about bringing condoms or whatever and randomly did jumping jacks?

If so I would probably frisk that guy before letting him in.

IIRC everyone who's going to commentate with people has already been decided (so no random people inviting themselves onto the couch) and have also been asked to watch runs of the games they're going to be there for so they're familiar with where they should and shouldn't talk.

He was a streamer personality trying to garner views for his stuff rather than supporting the runs. By how flatluigi describes it, they're already on the lookout for that kind of poo poo.

I'm looking forward to the run of the first few OOT dungeons blindfolded. I can't even imagine how much practice it takes to pull that off.

Was a Summer Games Done Quick 2014 highlight reel ever compiled? I enjoyed rewatching the AGDQ 2014 highlight reel a couple times and was hoping the same thing would be done for SGDQ.

That wasn't so much a race as doubling their chance to have a complete run on stream.

He has played through the whole game blindfolded, it was pretty fun to watch. It was also pretty painful at times, it will be interested to see how it plaays out with optimized strats.

I think UraniumAnchor wanted to finish it in time for it to be a preshow stream opener for AGDQ but I don't know if that actually ended up happening or not.

Sadly no.

I'm still doing one but at this rate it won't be finalized until February at the earliest. Which I realize is mad late, but better than not doing one at all.

Oh wow look at you Mr. Edgy with this post. What do you expect them to do? What would you like them to run? The fact of the matter is that a lot of people like seeing Super Metroid races; a lot of people enjoy watching Ninja Gaidan. The fact that you are mocking something for a good cause is despicable. Don't like it? Well, do something about it and shut up.

Eh. Sometimes bad games can have amusing runs or ways of being broken in absolutely absurd ways.

Bad games usually have better runs than good games, because imo at least watching someone play a game pretty well isn't nearly as interesting as watching someone break the heck out of a game.

Sonic Adventure is a hilarious speedrun game regardless of the fact that it's a giant pile of garbage, it deserves its time slot.

llo?

Ideas you have too late for agdq: wsplit running during the marathon, with splits for donations landmarks

$10,000_____03:21:56
$50,000_____10:12:00
...
$1,000,000_167:43:23

(getting the actual times from agdq2014, rather than made up values, is where thinking of it in advance would have helped...)

Then you could have it running as something to switch to during set-up times, and obviously split each time the 2015 total reaches a milestone.

i don't think 'bad' is necessarily right so much as 'glitchy'

ocarina of time is a good game but it's also glitchy as gently caress and the runs exploit that
