    One of the highlights of AGDQ imo. Watching this live had me bewildered.

    If I didn't have an outward facing cubicle I would watch most of it, but I'm going to have to hit the archives unfortunately. Some stuff I'll watch live for sure.

    I am not going to be able to stay awake for all of it but I will be watching a good deal of it.
    I am excited to see Yoshis Island, SM64 and Sunshine, donkey kong, any good current gen sonic, pretty much everything. Speedruns are just amazing to watch, the knowledge of the game mechanics that these people have is so amazing. Some of these games are so damn technical when speed ran, its crazy how some of the stuff comes down to 1 frame.

    Seriously watching sonic colors or generations speedrun is pretty much bliss. Its like actually watching sonic play.

    Trihex I think runs Yoshis Island every chance he gets lol

    Favorite speedrunner to watch right now is Kalemandu. He runs I wanna be the Boshy and has all of the WR at the moment (any%, 100%, rape mode).

    I'll probably miss most of sda due to work though. I'll catch what I can.

    I caught the end of RE:CV, the runner seemed really upset at the end. Felt kinda bad for him. Using an arcade stick was pretty sweet though :tup:

    Amnesia run was really cool. Game has superduper broken boundaries. That was really cool to watch. I fell asleep somewhere in here so I missed the Hotline Miami run :sad: I'll catch it at some point

    and I couldn't tell wtf was going on in that Catechuman seriously that game was weird

    They just reached $30,000! Good job for everyone donating.

    I was sad I missed the Quest 64 run, but it was starting at midnight lol.
    I'll make sure to check out the Hotline Miami speed run. I just watched Scarface last night, so when I hear 'Tony' and 'Mass Murder' and 'Miami', you can imagine what I'm thinking.

    LttP without Cyghfer is blasphemy. Doom 64 is up next though.

    Not many hacknSlash games this year though. Probably have to wait till AGDQ

    Rpgs are always the worst part of these marathons.
    after 2 hours I no longer consider it a speed run.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    I'd say that's about right. I tried watching an FF7 run just to see the mechanics of it, it was such a contrived method that it just wasn't fun to watch at all. I can't think of any game that'd be exceptionally long, yet still fun to watch. Mario is, of course, because of the type of game that it is, but that's about it, and it isn't even 2 hours.

    SMRPG is the best rpg to watch speed running. I remember Cyghfer ran it at the last AGDQ and it was very interesting. The reason is because of the many platforming elements in the game, which allow for cool skips and tricks. Also the battle system also had active mechanics in it, so he could do stuff like reduce damage when he needed to or do well on special attacks. I remember he had to do a lot of specific super jumps during the run and he even did the 100 super jump.

    Wheeew, well if that's the "best" that's hardly a good selling point for RPGs in general. I couldn't stomach that one either.

    OH YESSSS. Wasn't it usually 2nd and 3rd week of January tho?

    Funny how the chat is full of swastikas and gay hate speech during Kirby Adventure.
