There isn't a Tetris like block this GDQ that takes up half the day due to setup? The actual Tetris playing was good but not sure if it was worth the multiple hours of setting up for it.

Anyone have the link to the GDQ schedule where the current game is highlighted? When things start slipping later in the week it's a godsend.

I'm sorta half-watching right now, mostly just hanging out with the wife today. I already know I'll have to go back and catch up on runs from today.

I'll be able to watch a lot of this at work since I don't really have anything going on this week.

Splatoon 2 was A Fun Run. Not technically great but great commentary and Very Chill.

No, that's what I meant. Sorry if that wasn't clear. I wasn't sure what game is was supposed to be referencing. I haven't had a chance to play Breath of the Wild yet, so I didn't recognize it.

I also can't tell what Pop & Bells and Use Your Head are referencing either. I'm guessing Use Your Head is from Mario Bros.

pop'n twinbee loving sucks to play casually cause the game is insanely punishing for any little mistake while also being built around moving fast through stages filled to the brim with instant death spikes so i'm looking forward to a speedrun masterfully crushing all of that game's bullshit

Is there any reason why they play the games in languages other than English?

Text scrolls faster in other languages (consider some languages may need fewer words/characters to get the script across) and thus saves time

Japanese is a very information dense language and form of writing making it almost universally faster in old 16 bit stuff just because you're scrolling through fewer boxes.

In modern, voice acted games it's really a crap shoot because there are way more factors. Italian/Spanish may be a less information dense language in general, but the script may be more succinct than the English one, actors may deliver lines faster, etc.

The game itself looks like one I'd want to play but since I usually use GDQ streams as background noise the commentary is pretty

Localization for anything is only as good as your localization team, bad ones can end up cutting a lot of flavor/nuance if they can't figure out how to translate the idioms

Like all of those joke subbed fighting movies where a guy talks for 10-15 seconds in japanese and the subtitles are just "No"

They stated one mission didn't start until a phone call was over so Italian saved them two second just for that single phone call.

Skyrim's first 5 minutes were gold but it's kinda slowed down. Of course it's a 50 minute estimate so I know it's not going to be all facehugging a mountain but that's such a shame that the air got let out of this balloon immediately after such a high-octane start.

Couch crew / runner have a great vibe on this one though and they're keeping it fun even in low points like that
