Are they doing another stupid bit donation incentive that won't come within 25% of being reached?

Kazuma! These awful games, I'm going to have to watch all of them!


Clearly they'd get more Twitch bit incentives met if every cheer played 20 seconds of honking horns like every other stream.

They should also not do it because even with the crappy 10% matching Twitch was doing, it was still giving about 25+% of bit cost directly to Twitch.

Quoting from the last page, I have not seen anything about Twitch doing any matching this year, probably because their overwhelming generosity meant they only matched with $2300. Unsure if there's any thought on the GDQ side about doing incentives though.

http://irc.alligatr.co.uk/agdq17/ has viewer & donation totals from AGDQ last year and I assume http://irc.alligatr.co.uk/agdq18/ (404 right now) will have the stats for this year once the marathon starts.
There are two setup blocks on the last day that could be pretty good places for Super Metroid to be put in. I don't know if any Super Metroid runners are planning to be at AGDQ but zoast has been grinding any% NMG lately...

zallard's MTPO + SPO run will be up as a donation incentive and I'm ready to donate for that if needed.

They should do Super Metroid Randomizer instead to fit with this year's theme

Noted and added to my mental schedule.

After poking around, I'm also pretty interested in:
[Thursday] Two games being run by ADGQ owner Mike Uyama:
Sub-Terrania, which is some sort of Gravitar-clone he's run in the past that looks hard a balls.
Earnest Evans, which looks like they made each major bone of your character a separate [Sega equivalent of] mode-7 scaled and rotated sprite

Followed immediately by
Rex Ronan: Experimental Surgeon, which appears to be "Fantastic Voyage" the game.

A little bit later is "Titenic", some sort of beat-em-up where you are Leo DiCaprio on the boat, and it appears to have been coded for a bootleg 15-in-1 Famicom cart.

[Friday] Densha de D (apparently a simultaneous parody of trainsim Densha de Go! and street racing manga Initial D which is the origin of....


In terms of more mainstream games, I'm interested in seeing Metal Gear Solid 1 and 3. Breath of the Wild should be a good finisher, but I'm going to be very upset by their rock tech, because I literally can't get a rock to go the direction I want to save my life in that game, and I expect they will be flying all over the map on them.

Not sure how much of the first day I'm going to watch. I just ordered the Crash Trilogy from Amazon, and I try to avoid runs of game I want to play myself. I also have some errands I'd like to get done before I sit down and watch the marathon

That being said, I am looking forward to the Metal Gear games being run on Monday, and the Awful Block through Wednesday/Thursday night. I'm interested to see Arabian Nights and Rex Ronan.

Huh, checking it out with livestreamer, the AGDQ stream doesn't seem to have a 1080 quality option? Or is it just the restream is in 720p60 and the actual stream will be higher quality?
