Were Marisa and TheyBleedPixels any fun? My internet died and I missed them.
This is the future you chose. Why didn't you stop Uyama?
This is Ysg aka Blueglass and this event he is not allowed to be in front of the camera because he is a distraction because he is cooler than everyone else so they get pissed that they dont get the attention they want because everyone focuses on Blueglass
What dank meme should I get the announcer to say along with my donation /v/ ?
Literally true by the way.
>"No detracting from the runner’s presence. This includes signs, costumes, stuffed animals, grandstanding or any form of taking attention from the runner without the runner and event staff’s consent. The runner must inform us of any of these things that they approve of prior to the run. It also includes being generally distracting by talking or having your phone on, any really anything else that may arise that takes focus away from the run."
Also, thanks Chibi.
TMR is some good watching. He recently beat Ikari Warriors without using ABBA.
> RIP headphone users
IF YOU FUCKING NIGGERS WOULD STOP FUCKING WITH THE GOD DAMNED VOLUME AND MUTING THE SETUP PHASE, THIS SHIT WOULD NOT FUCKING HAPPEN
jesus fucking christ never let a fucking non-techy person operate technology. ever. this is the shit that will happen and you will kill audience members by this incompetence.
i didn't want to listen to the badass battletoads soundtrack anyways
I took a week of work for this.
You did this /v/
with all your epic "I would prefer if you would be quiet" meme spam, they had to introduce new couch rules.
You did this.
>this rule was made by Knitting "Can You Stop" Girl
The height of hypocrisy.
DAILY REMINDER THAT THIS MAN: MIKE "KIKE JEWYAMA" UYAMA IS THE SOLE REASON OF THIS SHITFEST
He's changed the rules to appeal to normies who don't go along the somewhat "autistic" communities of speedrunning.
He is the one choosing prevent cancer foundation who spend most of their revenue on publicity instead of doctors without borders who actually care about the sick.
He is the one who is actually forcing the "donation" program instead of just appreciating the games.
Knitler is just a woman, ergo: nothing significant to care about. There was no proof she had anything to say about this.
I'll do it, I'm going to wait until she starts reading announcements though so it wont get missed
>we do want to die. That'd be nice.
I feel these niggas.
>thinking chibi was the first autist on the couch
Nigga you guys were spamming that shit nearly hourly in the weeks coming up to AGDQ2015. Did you really think no one there lurks here?
ohhhh the irony of you saying that
it makes me feel all warm inside
vote on meme pronunciation
i dont know guys, something just ain't right
Besides that over laughing in the stream, stamper and dan were pretty excellent. Also it's nice to know stamper created the peeslosh line when he was drunk. Stamper's fucking great
>Just a bunch of nerds with little management
>Things go fine
>Bunch of "leaders" making sure everything goes "right"
>Can barely manage to stop the fucking timer correctly
Yeah. The overlaughing was a bit much, but I thought /v/ was being overdramatic. It was a little hit and miss, but there was some funny stuff in there. Like the guy's art being questioned.
>He's changed the rules to appeal to normies who don't go along the somewhat "autistic" communities of speedrunning
>Still permits sing-a-long donations to be read
Nah I think he's just a fuckin dumbass who has no idea what he's doin.
>now everyone is sitting there like they're high on morphine or some shit
as someone kinda high on morphine, this is not good to watch.
Almost slipping into a morphine coma while watching Hickok45 is better.
>Things go fine
Except they don't? Every single GDQ theres some embarrassing shit that happens that no one ever lives down.
I mean, yeah it is better that way though because now it's just sterile and lifeless.
>no one laughing
yeah, it's over allright
You are a little unfair to two of those, anon.
If it wasn't for cancer we wouldn't have this marathon in the first place.
If it wasn't for anime, we wouldn't have as many autists attending.
Be a little more appreciative.
now now, don't get mad at my superior body and intelligence. not everyone is destined for greatness afterall
I'm talking from a technical aspect. I've seen maybe 6 full runs so far and 3 of them had the timer stopped a full 5 fucking seconds after the runner called it. Their audio handling was never great but never this fucking pathetic.
Fuck Mike "The Kike" Uyama. Fucking money grubbing asshole ruined everything. Bluglass is pure of heart. PCF isn't even a good charity.
What the fuck is Uyama "sick" with?
You don't stay sick for months unless you are literally fucking dying.
I had to do a double take and make sure it was still there.
Then I thought
>when the fuck was it there?
>who the fuck else has one other than me!?
Finally I realized it was a shoop, phew.
>The only reason about the new couch-rule is to erase blueglass and iceplug
> the only reason for no mobilephones is to erase the red shirt guy who has read the twitchchat
What could someone do to take the focus away from the runner now?
Sgdq revival plan: go back to the speedrunners of 2013, take away every commentator and replace them with critikal. Or just replace the current commentator and person to read donations with critkal. It would make the stream actually entertaining
He's dangerously low on fucks to give about actual speedrunning, the doctors say he might never recover.
>I Wanna Be The Boshy run later
>Entire event is shut down when the audience attempts to Do the Mario
i'm gonna cry
that sincere, genuine happiness in his voice. he finally found somewhere where he felt accepted, and isn't that all we really want?
and now we're here.
This Battletoads speed run is pretty neat, to be honest.
Mexican dude is great.
adderall or coffee, but even that won't make you feel less like shit as you break 12 hours
once you've walked past 16 hours you more or less feel like a zombie no matter what, every move you do besides breathing and blinking takes effort and there will be moments of intense drowsiness. You'll physically realize if you close your eyes for more than 3 seconds you're in danger of simply just passing out from exhaustion.
You can speedrun any genre, glitches or no. Every game usually has more than one category for speedrunning. For example, the two most common categories are Any% (complete the game as fast as possible, which can involve using glitches to bypass significant parts of the game) and 100% (fully complete the game, glitches can be used so long as they don't make you skip anything). There are some "glitchless" categories as well for games that are notoriously broken.
Pretty much the only genre you can't speedrun is rhythm games, since they generally take the exact same time to complete a level.
I mean you definitely wouldn't want to speed run an auto scroller but most games have ways to complete it faster and with how complex games are there will always be glitches, and games are only getting more complex.
>but I fail to see the importance
Generalizations are closer to the truth than you would think. Men and women are very different beings. They have fundamentally different interests.
There are exceptions, sure, but the truth is the vast majority falls into the same patterns.
Paypal declined my card
Does anybody else want to do it?
$10 is the lowest donation that they have read out.
>Both my parents are dead
>Carer for my mother while she had liver cancer 'til the end
>I would never stain her memory by associating her with this sort of shit.
Honestly, this sort of thing makes me feel sick.
No fun, silent, boring. People outside /v/ aren't happy about it either.
I wonder how pj feels being at AGDQ now. Or even speed running. The guy must be in his early thirties now and he seems completely normal. But he still goes to these events surrounded by autists and weaboos in their 20s who play meme games and indie crap by just walking past all the enemies and thinking it's on the same level as totally breaking a game to zip into the end credits. Poor guy.
They didn't need to do anything though, Chibi was made into a laughing stock, nobody would fucking dare do anything like that again. What they did was heavy handed and idiotic.
If you count phone games as ''gaming'' then you might be right
Also, the reason there aren't many women there isn't because they aren't welcome, it's because women simply aren't interested in speedrunning.
Why are niggers allowed in the audience? So many rules but the most important one they forgot. Isnt this KFC smelling grape monkey not distracting for the runners. I sure would be off my game when any moment the console could be stolen.
Sure some of that can be true, I guess I am more willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt and judge them neutrally before they speak to me and then later gather my opinions
thought I had a dead pixel
No god damn fun allowed. Read the rules
Bluegrass got booted out for laughing, has to sit backstage and watch a projector now.
PCF is a shitty charity that approaches its prevention and early detection goal terribly compared to others and is USA only despite global runners and donators funding them.
Uyama is now contracted with PCF, and GDQ is a registered company. GDQ is fucking DONE, it's dead.
Autism has been referred to as the male brain set to the extreme.
While I don't share /v/'s fondness for labeling everything as autism, people this obsessive over specific games are probably somewhere on the spectrum
>Seemingly the only time he's been approached/hung out with this marathon is when someone wanted an epic picture with him for their Twitter page
>It's a personal message that will touch some people and draw in more donations
That's hardly touching, I wouldn't donate to a charity just because it has cancer in the name either.
You've got to make it really heartbreaking to make it worth it. Maybe work in something about you playing co-op battletoads with the dad, that your dad mentioned fun with you in one of his last conversations, that the stream helped you relive some of those cherished memories in the fight against cancer.
These people are fucking idiots.
>GUYS IT'S THE SAME AS ALWAYS, YOU JUST GREW OUT OF IT!!!
Does this GDQ have more than like 5 top runners?
I watch quite a few speedrunners and streams, but looking at the schedule just looked like a list of "LITERALLY WHO?" to me, aside from a few big names.
What happened, /v/?
Why i can't enjoy this? Where is this unique atmosphere?
For some reason all i can feel is sadness.
>Autism has been referred to as the male brain set to the extreme.
That's still controversial.
But you are right about autistic people much preferring systemising to empathising, so it would be a fairly safe bet that the speedrunning community contains proportionately more autists than the general population.
>Blurry pixelated screen
>Notice settings were on low
>Set it to source
>It's still blurry and pixelated, can't see shit captain
Ohgawd, I really feel sorry for people that grew up playing these.
>that bro who thanked blueglass for his support
it makes seeing this >>278382127 even harder to take
how fucked is this guy he's been asleep for half the run
Yeah i remember last year some people said shit or fuck here and there but they tried to stay calm after saying something. This year everyone has to focus not to say a bad word because else they get thrown in the KZ
It's being run by complete fucking idiots, that's why. All the shitty rules create a terrible atmosphere and then you have these depressing donation comments being read all the time. AGDQ is dead.
craft the ultimate cookie cutter donation message
>Greetings from Sweden! My grandmother died of cancer and my grandma died shortly afterwards because of depression. I got into speedrunning because of AGDQ but I didn't have enough money to donate last year, but I do this one so have $40 for a great cause. Keep up the good work and let's kick cancer's butt! Save the aniamls!
>It makes for a fun drinking game. The only way to have fun with this event.
Enjoy your liver cancer.
If only there was some way to prevent it.
Can't see the stream on the website
What am I doing wrong?
>Good riddance, what a fucking faggot for distracting runners from their runs
Yeah, why don't they get rid of the entire audience next time? That'll be better, and I hope they crank up the cancer guilt-trips.
pic related is why the show was good
>Hey guys, not sure if I sent this comment last year, but did I ever tell you about the time my buddy Paul Patine saved a burn victim, all while suffering from cancer himself? Even though his body was committing treason against him, he could still share the load. He was a good friend.
This isn't blurry? Can hardly character's textures, or not to mention random flickering when there is a lot of stuff on the screen.
Eh, you nostalgiafags.
It's almost like I could spend time volunteering at a hospice or something instead of donating pennies to another charity for some gamers.
Auctions are more exiting and less restrictive than this.
>My sister had cancer, but she's cured now thanks to foundations like PCF!
>If my X had the support and technology we had today X would still be alive :(
>Thanks runners for supporting a great cause!
You can just mad lib this shit.
>Greetings from ____Place____. I finally have some money to donate this year. My ___Relative___ recently died from ___Body Part___ cancer. Thanks for doing this and lets __Adjective__ cancer!
This shit is dead. It's not even about videogames anymore. It used to about playing games and doing some charity on the side. Now it's about charity and playing some videogames on the side. Fuck this.
>People thinking AGDQ is about getting world records
>Not knowing it is about the runners getting together and having fun for charity
>All these people saying Blueglass is banned from laughing and shit
No, you retards. It's because some of the speedrunners objected to having him in the audience due to his laugh and disability making things awkward. The rotational seating was a compromise to make sure he still got a spotlight without annoying the people who objected to him.
How does it feel to know that there is now one less thing to look forward to every year?
Basically there's a neuroscientist called Baron-Cohen who's done a huge amount of research into autism. He identified that autistic people fall heavily on the systemising side of the spectrum, which is basically universally accepted.
However, he also theorised that males are more prone to systemising whereas females are more prone to empathising, and that therefore autism is caused by development of an extreme version of the 'male brain'.
There is some partial evidence that testosterone levels in utero are linked to autism, but it's all still pretty shaky.
So yeah, actual scientific debate, rather than politically correct 'YOUR FACTS DON'T TRUMP MY POLITICS' bullshit.
>runners getting fannyflustered that someone is far more popular than them and their autistic game of choice
Blueglass might have some form of learning disability, but he means absolutely no harm. Nobody even tried talking to him. They just kicked him out. He's just a nice guy with a problem.
It has minimal blur, it's from stretched pixels.
Sprite flicker is a problem due to power of the hardware at the time, if you're running it at 30fps they can appear to be invisible every frame that is displayed on the video
who does not want to have and awkward moment like this with dem based bluegod
Guys what are the must watch games today?
I don't have much time, and don't even know what 90% of the games are, but some have been really enjoyable, don't wanna miss out on them.
>Getting a boner over a female voice
You fuckers really are permavirgins, holy shit.
Someone post that gif with blueglass sitting throughout the whole event while people move around and supporting every runner
Does agdq hires pornstars as announcers now??????
Is it me or have no one send a comment asking the runner to do something like say a tounge twister or the infamous cringy jumping jack. What happened to all the fun ;_;
I felt the same after last SGDQ, when people on /v/ started spamming Caveman and Chibi. And when the drama about some woman cheating on her husband appeared. And controllerhead screaming memes during his run. Shit was awful.
Then you should probably give it a go if you like
The first couple of episodes are kind of meh, though, give it at least 5 for it to get retarded enough.
>cutting the video before we can get a good look at her now see-through shirt.
Probably won't watch it, got other SoL stuff to get through. Things need to be short for me to watch them. My backlog is too big.

Funny thing is, I talked to YSG about the rotational seating and how some speedrunners felt about his presence in the audience.
You know what he said?
I'm going to sit in for the people who dislike me.
>They just kicked him out.
They didn't. There's a rule where the runner decides who sits on the couch. Nobody said "Blueglass can't sit there", it's just the runners don't want to hear a really loud sperglord during their runs.
