These two are entertaining for how late it is. Too bad people are gonna get banned hard after this.
but unlike others, they are explaining shit while they are at it. Explaining what they are doing comes first, i'll take awkward/tryhard comedy if they are at least telling us what they are doing
>People are going to complain about it being a rape joke
Was talking about a scary part, inferring you may shit yourself
>prepare your anus
Seems this GDQ is exploding with drama this year. Thank you based knitter-chan.
the thing with autists is they arent good with "reasonable" exceptions
if you give an autist a set of rules and say "make sure everybody follows these rules" they will enforce those rules exactly as written
and that's why i'm not going to GDQs anymore. Too much hassle, they need to just wipe the slate clean, rent out a small convention hall instead of a fucking entire hotel, and then keep it to just speedrunners and maybe a core group of extended community members, former runners, friends and family of runners, etc.
Instead we have this faggot shit where they literally stop people in a hallway to check their pass and look up a ban list on their god damned phone. I don't blame bigjon i'm just about done with this and they'll never have my business again.
>they need to just wipe the slate clean, rent out a small convention hall instead of a fucking entire hotel, and then keep it to just speedrunners and maybe a core group of extended community members, former runners, friends and family of runners, etc.
But then they woulsn't make money. That is literally the only reason these events are held remember.
He was harassed heavily yesterday by the Paul Blarts at the event checking his pass and informed folks about it. He also talked to CoolMatty directly and told him GDQ needs to check themselves because they're starting to piss a lot of people off. Nothing special, just being a good dude.
Obviously with a limit. 2 friends/family max old runners at a higher cost for a pass.
like it isn't packed now with nonrunners? Nobody's allowed to fucking stream otherwise i'm sure you'd see how packed the fucking casuals room and arcade rooms are with literal nobodies, and even runners. Nobody is there for the actual event anymore and that needs to change. Because like >>127641195
said, this is for a charity event. I get that SDA wants to make money off of people showing up, but that really shouldn't be necessary. They have like 40 staffers on SDA as is, they don't need to hire a whole new team in the form of cloud 9 gaming EVERY event from now on. It's not a necessary purchase. Never will be, no matter how big it gets. They need to work on training the people they have to do their fucking jobs right.
That's what I meant. I don't blame him for speaking his mind, most runners bite their tongue in the GDQ atmosphere because it's always been that way, and you've NEVER been allowed to criticize GDQs without getting banned and shunned from everything ever. Only in the last year have they started unbanning old bans (from 2011~) and taken a more professional stance on this shit, they say no more snarky non-responses, but just go look at the SDA forums (need to be split so GDQ isn't involved anymore, as it's a separate entity, legally and otherwise)
It's infuriating. Moreso now than ever, and I don't know how many people they'll get back next year because nobody's watching the fucking runs besides blueglass.
that is fucking gross as all hell. Jon is easily the nicest guy that ever streamed, and probably the biggest too. He wouldn't hurt a fucking fly.
Oh ya forgot about the cart thing. Real fucking stupid. Whoever is responsible for that needs to get removed from staff.
Big Jon's runs are comfy as fuck and he's got a great presence on stream.
>packed the fucking casuals room and arcade rooms
>Nobody is there for the actual event anymore
fortunately they definitely will not be making more than they did last time, so maybe they'll get a clue
the atmosphere that comes across on the twitch stream is pretty fucking dire, and there's only one stream
I can't say gross/rad/bonkers without anyone stopping and asking so you're on your own figuring that one yet.
They really need to be stopping Caleb instead, given his history of domestic violence.
just watch his stream some time after agdq dies down when he's doing Price is Right with the audience and try to enjoy the effort this man puts into providing free entertainment every day.
literally every streamer puts effort into providing free entertainment every day. none of them charge people to watch their stream
yeah any pasty white kid could also grab a gun and shoot your ass, does that mean you should bend over to everyone you meet?
And if he had a bunch of guns on his back wall, a history of mental illness, was denied a carry permit but still walked strapped anyway and DIDN'T shoot me, I'd also think he was pretty nice.
what's with americans and MUH RANKS
>as a Marine
>as a Soldier
>as a puppet of the government that kills for glory
Seriously americans, get a grip. it's 2016. Stop glorifying the military.
But big jon doesn't have a history of mental illnesses or anything, he's just a buff dude, I could walk around with a knife in my pocket (which I don't need a permit for) which I could stab anyone with but I don't, does that also make me a super nice guy?
spend some time in the military and you might understand it :^)
just remember, my little europal, our big, scary armies are a big part of what gives you the freedom to be a peace-at-all-costs ideologue.
True, but let's be honest, we only glorify the ones that do. Thank you for your service as a requisitions clerk? No.
People pull that "as a _______" shit because it works. It's up to everyone else to stop giving guys preferential treatment because they spent a few years training to kill kids in Dirtghanistan. It's not like joining the military automatically makes you a cool person; I met some of the worst shitheads I'll ever know there.
Shit, didn't we just find out that one of the guys who shot that girl in Texas or whereever out of nowhere turned out to be a Marine instead of a random gangbanger?
even soldiers are tired of this shit
>spend some time in the military and you might understand it :^)
even people who serve in the military realize it's a retarded thing and being a soldier is not cool it's just fucking garbage overall
>just remember, my little europal, our big, scary armies are a big part of what gives you the freedom to be a peace-at-all-costs ideologue.
you actually believe this? lmao
>BUT YOU HAVE JAMALS KEKING YOU!!!
1) Brainwashed from the earliest age
2) Brainwashed every single day
3) Brainwashed wherever they go
4) 3.2 million Americans work for the US military. Another 400,000 work for the weapons industry. The industry makes up 1% of the total US GDP. America couldn't stop "defending themselves overseas" even if they wanted. They literally have to be at war, or total chaos and anarchy would ensue.
As someone who also hates scary games...I know exactly what you are talking about, just push through the first hour of BioShock. Once you get a gun that game stops being scary. Nothing matters when you can gun down any fuck that passes you by.
>even people who serve in the military realize it's a retarded thing and being a soldier is not cool it's just fucking garbage overall
most people who were in the military say that to justify the fact that they needed to get out. sounds a lot better than "man that shit was too hard, i need to do something else." job sucks, but it's completely necessary. easy to forget in peacetime though
>you actually believe this? lmao
yup. ask ukraine how much they wish they were able to become a part of NATO
>sure adolf, we'll help
>just spend tons of resources to teach us and equip us and all of that other shit
>oh are we a drain somehow with our incompetence? sorry lol pizza pie
why are you faggots discussing military don't you all avoid service to sit in your room all day and play mario 64?
>yup. ask ukraine how much they wish they were able to become a part of NATO
What does Ukraine, which isnt even part of EU, have to do with americans having to do our work?
Holy moly stop listening to FOX news
go invade some country you dirty imperialist
murrica fuk ye
>calls me a buzzmemeing eurofriend
>is literally the one using buzzwords every other word because he has no argument
if you actually think Russia is any threat to EU countries you are incredibly deluded.
And who sustains peace? America?
Oh my fucking God. You're too far out. The propaganda got you GOOD.
dunno I don't watch or play that shit
not really surprising, those are the easiest runs out there to show off to friends.
I don't remember the loading screens being so fucking pretentious either but I assumed they actually meant something in context to the story and not just snippets of DA drivel meant to set the mood
bait is literally the lowest common denominator in social interaction. all you are doing is giving someone who is already primed to want to discuss something an excuse to discuss it, then turning around and celebrating it as if it's some kind of cosmic victory. i don't know if it's about some kind of illusion of control or something, but i guarantee you someone who doesn't actually want to talk about something in the first place wouldn't even talk about it.
for instance, i was already primed to respond to this bait comment because i have these ideas about what bait actually is and like to discuss it. you gave me an opportunity to do it, so thanks. you sure got me

>Tried having sex with a girl last night
>Couldn't get it up so she got mad and left
>Now I'm sitting here alone eating pumpkin seeds and watching speedruns
How is your morning going, /srg/?
Remember, Anon, you do not exist to serve women. Shit happens. If she got mad and left because you were not able to perform, she clearly showed who she really is.
You got this.
Yea figured as much, this is basically just a vocal tool for information spreading. While I would rather have the donation towards research directly, I cannot deny this has potential to help some people.
Prevention mostly, as their name implies. Ad campaigns, that sort of things. They also support research a bit. That's all there is to it, really.
Of course, according to /srg/ they spend all the money on mexican crackwhores and Uyama's future sex change operation, but what would you expect? Forge your own opinion.
>can't say bad words
>allowed to play bloody games
About 20% of total donations/35% of program related expenses. The rest mostly goes to prevention campaigns, administration and fundraising costs. Sources are hard to find and those are the only numbers I have so I can't guarantee they're entirely truthful.
>DEAD FRIEND DISCOVERED THIS TRICK

That guy must be feeling horrible botching his dead friend's tribute.

Why do nerds always sit like little girls?
I'm not even trolling, it actually bothers me
>playing memorized levels that the audience can't even see at regular speed with no tricks
Trying to come up with an idea for a worse speedrun but I'm having a hard time. Maybe a game with no visuals at all?
I remember watching an FF1 speedrun once. some dumb motherfucker went through the hall of gigas in it's entirety. You shouldn't take one single step in the hall of gigas much less multiple unless you're so far behind.
>some dumb motherfucker went through the hall of gigas in it's entirety
What an idiot
when I asked why in his chat he said it was "to grind", and when I pointed out that he could go farm piscodemons way more efficiently, he banned me from his chat. His loss, faggot. I know every exploit there is to know about PSP FF1 (the superior-est version)
A lot of strats are a 10% chance, reset-till-you-get-it kinda thing and you can't do those here so most people end up like 4 minutes over the world record and it's like....okay w/e I guess thats good this run was kind of irrelevant though.
Some are just choking and sad when they hear it.
I tried, it was denied from SDA because it was too long, and video quality was too low, and they "weren't sure if the equipment exploit I used was valid" for a game that had only one previous run that was like 3 hours slower than mine.
Go look on the submissions forum you'll find the post about FF anniversary edition. I don't have the link anymore. That was before SRL and shit too otherwise i'd probably not have cared as much as I did.
creator said he didn't want it at a GDQ or something because it would spoil people, or that's the rumor going around. A run was offered, with that exact incentive, but it got denied without reason.
>the word pacifist is used
>chat spams undertale
this fanbase is actual cancer. i'm reaching the point where im outright embarassed to say I liked it in case I get assosciated with this shit.
that's what I mean, this would be a great filler game. EVERYBODY knows prince of persia. all those setup blocks in the middle of the day with shit games like crypt of the necrodancer would be better filled with prince of persia.
Are you kidding? That was back when the speed of meme was a lot slower. Portal references were kosher for like 3 years with the wider "gaming" community.
meme all you want, the guy literally loaded like 8 save states, joke of a run, doing illegal shit just to be marathon safe but ruining what makes it a speedrun in the first place
You could always play the anime version.
>about speedrunning post 2013
>not just glorified let's plays with the occasional guy in the wrong place actually trying to speed run
I'm sure there is, you just have to be there since everyone is hush hush and too afraid to get on the ban list
This is also the result of corporate sponsorship getting involved, gotta be as squeaky clean as possible
I dunno people tried real hard to make the half life 2 run into memes.
Kinda fell apart when he didn't do anything extremely horrific just kinda wasn't very funny and a little awkward. Aside from sitting on his friends knee that was weird.
on that note we're about to have the memest run i've ever seen holy fuck kill me
>This song is going to be playing EVERY SINGLE LEVEL
I've hated the song since I was a kid because when I heard it on the radio it would get stuck in my head for hours, when Shrek came out it amplified how shitty it was because now I had a green Mike Myers quotes accompanying it
I thought I left this song in the last decade where it belonged
you can't escape your past it seems
we asked for this
every cakeboy meme
the memes we have abandoned grow and fester in the darkness, until slowly, gradually, the day arrives where the twisted heads of our forgotten children erupt back through the strata of the internet to stare back at us behind a crazed, twisted visage we can barely recognize before bursting apart and engulfing us in a suffocating cloud of spores, our tongues too heavy with soot to lift one last, desperate "fucking cucks" to the winds before it all goes dim
Face it, memes are fucking dead.
With all the pervasive social media on the internet now there can no longer be genuine entertaining memes. Everything is either forced or losses it's appeal within hours of happening due to repetition on twiiter or facebook.
