If I practice speed running while watching other speed run, on a scale of 0 to 10 how much have I lost control of my life?

Did they ever reveal what's going to be the substitute to the kill/save animals thing? Ya know, since it doesn't seem super metroid is on the list?

We're still doing save/kill the animals. This time it applies to Tintin in Tibet.

Not really but I'm guessing people will still be donating to save/kill the animals anyway as a joke so not really not really.

I didn't really watch the last SGDQ or all *that* much of AGDQ 2017. Did the rules lighten up at all or is the place still horrifically strict and forced to be straight faced.

E: I have nothing against the event to be clear, I just found that over time it became less fun to watch because rules kept getting added and it felt like every time a runner joked or had fun they'd get slapped on the wrist and told that it wasn't okay.

I kinda honestly have no idea how this thing even persists. I guess some people are just bitter that GDQ is a bit bigger now than "live from some guy's garage, anything goes!" and that of course translates to "no fun allowed". I've had plenty of fun watching GDQ ever since I actively started (2015 or so).

e: There's also a small number of people who go out of their way to trash GDQ every year, making false photoshops and video edits and of course spreading rumours on how the GDQ staff is actually secretly lizard hybrids who steal all the donation money for themselves.

There was a program (or perhaps two programs working in tandem) that allowed twitch to pop out and play in its own window on your computer without commercials or the chat. It was linked in the OP of every GDQ thread but this one. What was/were the program(s)?

It's in the slow thread OP, Streamlink Twitch GUI

I suggest Grandpa puts it in this OP too before the event actually starts so people can prepare and set it up (is real easy though)

Just thinking back to stuff like Bonesaw's hilarious run of Jak 2 (or was it 1? It's been awhile) that seemed to be a huge fan favorite because of how insanely jetlagged he was. Everyone was laughing and having a good time and then he got banned for a year (I think?) for it.

Then couches in general seemed to all go dead silent and almost every run I tuned into last year had the runner just mumbling about saving a few seconds and that was it (though again, will admit I didn't watch a lot so maybe I just kept hitting really bad times). No real banter, no jokes being made. Just mumbling and donations with a bored looking couch.

It just came off as way more sterile and not that exciting to watch because it felt like (to me and what I saw) it was more of a job then a bunch of guys and gals getting together to have fun raising money for a good cause. Like I'm not going to buy into stealing money claims or anything like that and I'm not going to call it a waste of time if it helps people, just kind of stating how it's felt to me over the last couple years.

If you use GDQ as a platform to disparage another companies services after repeatedly being told to stop through the headset, yeah you're probably going to be asked not to submit runs for a year.

Same applies to like, telling people to stand in front of a shuttle.

I only recall him getting told to stop doing the owen wilson "wow" which didn't really harm anyone and actually brought in a ton of donations because he just couldn't stop. Also something about a airline that hosed with his flight coming in or something like that where he clearly joked about tweeting them.

Like for real that was harmless goofing around while doing a really funny run that brought in a ton of money or are we rewriting it as a bad unfunny run that everyone didn't like. (I'll check out the run you linked when I have a bit more time. I recall hearing that it was one of the good ones and never got around to it)

Mind going into this a bit more? Would help balance things out for me because the only thing I recall is "man air canada is going to be super confused when they wake up and see this lol"

Like how was he unprepared? He showed up and did his run pretty drat well and didn't hold anything up so I'm actually kinda curious.

I've been watching since AGDQ 2012 and I remember one middle of the night run during SGDQ 2013 (don't remember the actual run) I was like one of the only people watching and I held a conversation with the runner via donations.

He clearly didn't get enough sleep and as a result was making mistakes the entire run to the point it was almost mercy killed.

quote:

Looking at cons, I mangled my presentation of Jak and Daxter to the highest degree and I apologise deeply. During the run, I could feel my phone going off in my pocket and I was starting to get anxiety, having this genuine feeling that people on Twitter were saying what a screwup the run was and how anyone who plays this bad could get in to a GDQ. Truth is, I was approached by staff after the run and they said they were looking at two options: mercy killing the run and ending it right there, or memeing literally so hard that we made the run a success. To be honest, I had mixed feelings immediately following the run, because the laughs and memes were great, but I really felt like I let a lot of people down by giving such a bad performance. I practised a lot and had a generally good time doing the practice, but by then I was so far gone with jet lag and stress that there was a very low chance I was gonna be able to give a decent showing of the run. I was so disappointed in myself after ward. I outlined all of this in a poorly formatted Reddit post in one of the SGDQ threads. In a way, I lost the only thing I stand for in speedrunning; to have fun. I told myself, if things start to go badly, just have fun with it, but it took me a long time to let that "whale of attachment" go (about an hour and fifteen lmao). Finally I thought, if there's one thing I'm going to do right during the run, it's to have fun with my friends, and play a video game like no one was watching. Go out with a bang. Show em all you've got a personality. Moral of the story: Pressure is unnecessary. Have fun.
In hindsight, I wouldn't change a thing.

Hello chums, I am excited for AGDQ 2018 because I love watching this event. There are some games on the list I've player but not seen speedrun before so that'll be fun to see!

One year I hope to attend in person to watch as much as I can but sadly for me that is not this year. Once again I will probably post more in this thread than I do in an entire year on the forums because I am boring and bad at posting.

Also, as mentioned before, Bonesaw wasn't banned, he just couldn't submit runs for a year (?) and sat on the couch for tekkie's Silent Hill 2 run last SGDQ.

e: I mean, Bonesaw's run was a glorious trainwreck of a run, but you can't really expect the staff to be fine with somebody making such a mess of a run all the time.

I tend to remember the good stuff, not focus on the bad ones. Although I will admit I'm real bad with awkward stuff and can't even bear to watch replays of stuff like the "jump in front of the shuttle" guy.

I mean, if you have as messy of a run as Bonesaw did with a lot of real world shenanigans, even if it turns out to be hilarious you probably should sit out a couple of events. The dude and his couch (the guy that kept pushing him was on the couch for another run in SGDQ, can't remember which one now) were funny and personable, but imagine if the MAGA shitlords see how popular that poo poo was and tried to replicate it with their amazing sense of humor?

If we could just delete all the videos from the internet and hard drives of "jump in front of the shuttle" guy I would be OK with that.

Not that I've seen, I was mulling over compiling a list, but don't know which runners are goons (beyond those who have indicated as such in the two threads) . I'm pretty sure I saw halfcoordinated post here last year? He's got two runs this time around.
