Now: Pokemon Yellow any% Glitchless Ends
Next: Pokemon Blue Glitch Showcase
Later: Final Fantasy (1)
I dunnno. What am I, psychic? It depends entirely on the games run, the runners running those games, and how the event as a whole is organized. Things are bad when you can tell that these things are poorly organized from the stream alone.
Its run by same people, I predict about the same. I think they might listen to the fans and throw in some new speedruns, I think the whole speedrun marketing they are doing is to get kids to speedrun new games that they can play.
TIME TO DIE
Thanks for closing us out nocash.
now back to having no sense of involvement and being lonely.
Well time to rewatch the entire thing then i guess because there were so many runs i missed.
It'd be nice if /vr/ had a thread for it, but I doubt it would be greeted very warmly.
It had some decent threads earlier this week (normally around this time of day) but sticky doomed the rest of it.
/v/ is no doubt full of many of the worst anons on these boards, but this is the place for the threads.
I thought AGDQ this year was great. Why do so many people here dislike it?
No, there have been AGDQ's under a million dollars, the ratings for the show are also higher than in 2013 probably 2015. Don't listen to the people here, 4chan just likes to wish for people to fail for some reason like they did with Star Wars and when Trump gets the nomination they will do with Trump.
Who's the bald guy with pants too big for him?
He's probably my favorite speedrunner because of his godtier commentary and step by step instructions. Is he a staple for every JRPG at GDQ?
Greetings from Germany! Long time viewer, first time donator here. My grandfather passed away recently after a long battle with cancer so what you guys are doing is awesome! I had to donate during one of my favorite games of all time. This AGDQ has been awesome and I have been losing sleep because of you guys. I love seeing my childhood being destroyed in these speedruns. Shoutouts to the runners and people who made this possible. Keep up the good work and let's kick cancer in the butt! Remember, save frames, not the animals. Everybody say HOYP
No more gay erp and people randomly posing anime
Thank fuck I hope this shit gets banned off /v/ it's no longer about speedrunning and agdq but anime and shitposting
Fuck you /a/ you ruin everything
1/10, very few good runs, terrible show overall, as is with every other GDQ since AGDQ 2013, a lot of boring and terrible runs, too. Really wish they didn't even get 1 million.
>tfw you will never experience the comfy GDQ bonus streams again
It had some good runs, Strider and 2P Super Metroid. As well as blindfold Punch-out
But the rest? Severely mediocre.
I thought the 'no fun allowed' of the previous years was just a meme. This is the first time I feel it's been ruined by it. That the stale and boring mediocrity finally pushed its way into the stream and made it less fun for everyone.
It's fucking boring now. No one presents games that aren't marathon-safe because no one wants to see something go wrong. So it's just people practicing games everyone has done a million times before.
I hope SGDQ doesn't fall into this trap.
Even to the end...
After all the runs are over...
No more incentives to reach...
And the final amount of donations totaled and announced...
/v/ will still find something completely arbitrary to complain about
I love you guys. I don't regret a single second here. See you later you retarded faggots.
3/10. Worst GDQ so far, but still room for even worse.
>A wild fucking Uyama appears
depends on thick you are if you get what I am saying
I think 7/10 would be my rating as well.
Good stuff, but I have to deduct points for some really bad runs like L4D2.
Good atmosphere and some great games, plus a lot of angsty kids in the threads yelling at older /v/ users for having fun
>mfw this is just one horrible memefest
>mfw the technical difficulties of the past have been replaced with absolutely bottom-tier garbage runs
>mfw they ban people in wheelchairs
>mfw they give TAS runs more time
>mfw speedrunning eventually dies because uyama and this chick have no idea what they're doing
>mfw I am the eggman
>mfw I am the walrus
>mfw coo coo ka choo
>tfw she will never get BLACKED
monitor-kun got annoying to be honest famalam
>Prelude during the finale
Good, but this was better.
black lives matter is going to crash sgdq 2016. like they tried to crash the mummers parade
the more i watch this the more i get convinced that these are not my people
i think i'm not a nerd after all
It's finally over.
One million posts with just the word anime! and a pcture not contributing to the thread using up bumbs and creating more threads meaning more butthurt for the mods and getting the topic stickied
Face it anime is what ruined the discussion here
>They literally just cut the stream and thats it
Does Blechy attend SGDQ as well? That fucker is awesome.
Thank Jesus it's finally over.
Time to play some games
I watch this every year, but i missed this one
I MISSED THE WHOLE THING
SHOULD I BE REALLY DEPRESSED ABOUT THIS
WAS IT A GOOD ONE?
FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. That rubbed me the wrong way.
thank you jesus I couldnt handle another day
fun times all around but im glad its over
not the worst GDQ imo
last reminder to fap
Here's a question:
If you guys hate this so much, why do you watch it?
Not trying to defend the event or anything, it was pretty shit this year. Just curious.
>tfw cosmo would rather take estrogen than run games
>tfw even the main event Super Metroid runner dies and has to use save strats and cheat codes
>tfw sig is nowhere to be found
This agdq was fucking terrible. It seems everyone felt this way as it earned 30% less than last year. Hopefully it has peaked and next year we won't have a sticky on /v/ about watching people play video games.
And so it ends. I'll be heading back to /a/ then. See you, /v/ermin. I had a blast shitposting with you.
I'm pretty sure 4chan is what ruined the discussion here.
This will be remembered as the year that it turned to shit and went downhill.
Next year will be the runners in a tiny iron box, insulated from the fun. Only talking time is permitted when a little light is flashing.
The audience will be in a concrete room with no lights. If any of them are spotted they get DING DONG BANNERU
We can only sit at our computers and avatarfag to our hearts' content
why don't you?
it's not healthy to keep it in
Yeah no the first few threads were fine till loli anime butt posters and who /cute boy/ anime fags started posting
They were just posting pictures of their waifus for no reason using up bumps and destroying discussion. If there was no anime none of this would of happened at the rate it did
Are you really asking that?
Keep in mind this is the response you'll get:
He saw 3 runs out of what, 100 or so, yet he declares it shit and I doubt he ever watched the previous events.
That being said, I thought it was pretty good.
Not all of the runs were good (like L4D2) but overall lots of good stuff.
Disney block, NES block, Megaman, Castlevania, Super Metroid shared controller thing, the Transformers fun, etc.
I heard good things about the awful games block as well.
Watch the archived stuff.
>this year is the year it turned to shit
>If you guys hate this so much, why do you watch it?
Because in the past, I loved it.
There was a time when it was this magical time of the year where I got to learn new things about games, watch people I thought were funny interact, and enjoy seeing games I love get cracked open by people having a good time.
Now it's like watching the prisoners in North Korea build another statue. You can tell that they would rather be doing almost anything else than building that fucking statue to the people who put them in chains.
>Scedule SDGQ over 4th of July
>Donations suffer because American's too busy to watch on the 4th
>somehow makes PCF look better and they are convinced to donate to PCF for both marathons
All part of the jew plan.
>Just one announcer comes out and says thanks then the stream cuts
>No 45 minute parade of people to the mic as each one gives a heartfelt speech
>Not making everyone listen to prelude or to far away times for the entire time
>Not telling everyone the bonus stream will go live at noon tomorrow where all the runs and runners that didn't get in will be able to have their shot
They fixed the camera and couch area a bit and the lighting was better but eh, it still doesn't have that comfy feeling that it used to.
Finally, time to sort out my sleep schedule.
If there was no anime those threads would be falling off of page 11 with 57 replies you bitch.
I loved it.
Keep in mind that /v/ has a high number of newfags that try to fit in by shitting everywhere, especially when they come from other sites and only come here for epic shitposting.
It is easily the worst board, but there are still good things here.
a good speedrun is still a good speedrun.
just because Ghostbusters 3 is going to blow doesn't mean all movies are bad.
plus matt and sumi at twitch are complete idiots who are way in over their head (throwing out people in wheelchairs?) and will listen to twitter and social media more than anything else to guide their decisions.
so yeah, shitposting helps curb the public opinion on shit.
They had an Any% donation incentive, but the stream crashed during it so they postponed it until the day after. Not sure why they wouldn't have an all levels, Any% run, considering the amount of runners there who could have participated.
There were better times...
I meant no anime on /v/ without actually contributing to the thread.Not just posting "Anime!" and a pic I must of counted a hundred
"Quick post your waifu"
And that shitty Akarin avaterfag always going on about bullying
And anytime someone complained they were shitting up the topic they just posted 1 billion anime butts destroying the topic even more
Back to Atelier Rorona for me.
Shit maybe you should have ignored them or something then.
The sticky wasn't due to the anime reaction image shitposters but the fags spamming new threads and spamming existing threads with links to other threads.
I hate the ERP and porn dump fags as much as the next guy, but they weren't responsible for the sticky.
ohhhhhh my godddddddd you guys are so fucking negative lmao. How do any of you even live, you must be so critical and contrarian and bitter to the very air you breathe that your lungs will start rejecting it any moment now
Lets just ignore three quarters of the thread not including when they've stopped caring about the speedrun and about what loli they are in that sleepover pic
Lets just not ban anyone on /v/ ever we can have eternal cuck posting because you can just ignore it even if there's thirty threads up and posts in every thread
Goddamnit. Who's to blame about this decision so I can shitpost with purpose?
Yeah that was what shocked me, considering that they had people like TriHex there.
Then again, this was the AGDQ that had freaking Bloodborne, which has long-ass load times (pretty good game though), so I really shouldn't be that surprised.
The thread spam was due to the Anime fags spamming butt/waifu pics using up the bump limits meaning more threads were being created faster
Look at the nighttime threads only like two for the entire night when there was no anime posts for hours
They're renting a shit load of equipment and space now and bonus stream doesn't even get any donations so it would be losing a bunch of money
When they did bonus stream it was just people attending bringing their own equipment and they were renting out really small spaces.
Sucks, though. It was always the best part.
No it's the opposite I don't care about agdq and I want it banned off /v/ it's just for shitposting and anime posting now
But I bet you find epic anime butt posting a quality contribution to the thread
If anyone doesn't think this year was a digression into utter shit, head on over to reddit.
>banning people in wheelchairs
>no runs by sig, big jon (left off schedule due to GDQ staff pettiness), werster (banned), and cosmo is dead
>dramatic increase in tumblr whales on camera
>speedruns where people literally didn't know how to play the game (left for dead)
>the destruction of once likeable or at least entertaining runners from early days of GDQ--Runnerguy (sat there the whole time), Trihex (son, he's now a bro, son, who loves himself, son), Caleb (OK, I respect that, OK, I respect that, let me interrupt everyone more)
>speedruns where people died multiple times (mega man, metroid)
>speedruns where entertaining people were chastised by staff for making mildly sexual comments (noir)
>speedruns with shitty, shitty commentary even for GDQ standards
>speedruns where people sabatoged other people (zelda)
>speedruns where people set WR for games that literally no one else ran (velocity)
>speedruns of romhacks
>mario maker "speedruns"
>giving 1.2 mil to a shitty charity
>singing disney songs on camera
>presence of Mike Uyama who "got sick" and then just happened to be there all along
>he doesn't know what hair extensions are
>lack of blueglass on camera
>shitty couch placement
>military police at hotel
My point still stands there were more threads being made 200 posts before the sage because a hundred or more of the posts were offtopic anime shit and everyone made a thread instead of just one guy
I don't have a problem with anime only gay erp and bully avatarfags which just so happened to include a lot of the threads. A majoirty of the threads started off with someone posting "Anime!"
I think TAS runs should stop being called "tool assisted" when the tool is doing 100% of the running by itself. I understand how some could want to see how far a game could be pushed with infinite frame perfect inputs but I don't think it had any place at a speedrunning convention.
I understand that they don't want people to show politically incorrect stuff on stream but why ban for that? Just simply tell people not to show stuff on camera and everything is fine.
Same with the cripple and his ipad or whatever showing frankerz. Why ban him for that?
If the staff dislike it simply tell the guy to stop showing it. Banning him for that is such a dickmove I can't even find any reason to justify it.
Don't forget all the fucking Sony shilling, including an entire Playstation block and mysteriously the moment it turned midnight for that day all the donators had to mention they were so "hype" for the "playstation block" aka the everyone-can-go-to-sleep-now block.
I'm assuming that anon is referring to what happened so the ALttP race. While laughing about something, Andy kicked Superskuj's SNES, forcing him into a reset. He also didn't apologize for it, which irked chat and Superskuj (just speculation, but he also wasn't as engaged as he initially was during the start of the race).
We'll have to agree to disagree. I do share your animosity towards those fags, but I'm not confident in saying they were responsible for the sticky.
I really don't need any new reason to hate them any more than I already do, especially since I enjoy anime and touhou and they make me post its images less.
Keep the console wars for another thread, anon
there was a big leddit thread a long time ago showing lots of evidence that PCF was a shit charity though, aswell as being an US only charity.
just google pcf bad leddit and you'll probably find it
Apparently the hotel had rented out like 50 security guards and they were hassling people to see badges constantly.
It was mix the animefags spammed with the general speed of the threads and people rushed to make threads
I can remember one guy always posting bread and linking in the thread to the next one and only having one up for a while and that worked pretty good but once he left we got people not linking and just creating their own ones
>they kept stopping him to see if he was on the ban list
I really don't understand why they're running this shit like Nazis, no fun allowed i ding dong bannu
I still enjoy speedrunning but it's gone from some runners using charity as an excuse for getting together and gathering hype to a faggy giant event that's too big big for its britches
holy shit why work out if you're only going to make yourself look retarded?
well im going to sleep
agdq was nice
I love all you guys, have a nice night
Not the same anon, but I agree. There's a balance between being PC and outright censorship. I know they want to be seen as legit and all so that they can get some sponsors, but everything feels so fake and it feels like the speedrunners can't show any personality anymore.
>show off TAS run where they've managed to break the game to the point of executing arbitrary code
>kids start crying because they want to see 'muh bloodborne dupe souls and skip everything' run
stay mad nigger
>Didn't even earn as much as last year's SGDQ
Do you think the staff will learn that their Nazi regime will suck the fun out of these events? Does the thought of raking in even less shekels frighten Uyama?
>look at how ugly everyone else is!
Thanks for sharing your opinion!
About half of PCF's budget is prevention and prevention research; which boils down to handing out fliers and telling people not to smoke. Comparatively the Cancer Research Institute actually researches methods of treatment for cancer and does not waste hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on telling people that working in asbestos lined paper mills and smoking 3 packs of marlboros a day causes cancer.
>mocking the appearance of others
>"hurr durr other people are insecure!!!1"
most likely ashamed of himself after becoming a trans abomination.
Before this thread ends, I just have one question
Why would anyone subscribe to Trihex's channel?
So what's some good shit that i should go back and watch?
Total list of shit i feel like should be watched:
Batman: The Video Game
Super Castlevania IV
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
Mega Man X
Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition
missing anything good?
There's this: http://oddshot.tv/shot/gamesdonequick-2016011001356756
Also, VODs are out.
Anyway, aside from Andy not apologizing to Skuj, he was pretty much hogging the spotlight throughout the race. One example was when at the end of the game, he was still saying shit like how people should relax and watch credits, even though Skuj was still playing the game. It also didn't help that the couch commentators were his buddies, so instead of being fair and provide commentary for both players, they spent most of their time talking about Andy (which is an overall problem in this GDQ; leading player/team being the focus instead of providing an unbiased commentary).
