Mike Uyama Remorial Fundraiser 2016 LIVE NOW!
- ESA equivalent taking place in Chicago.
- Meetup / marathon in Santa Ana, CA, March 18th - 20th
>let's kick cancers butt
>when it should be "let's become aware of cancer"
Hurts my soul to see so much money collected for such a shitty fucking charity. At the risk of sounding like a bleeding heart faggot, I fucking hate what money does to people.
AGDQ is supposed to be collecting money for charity and no doubt they wanted to donate for an actual good charity, but PCF happened to give them the best deal for collecting them.
Imagine how many people this money could actually help if donated to local causes and charities. It wouldn't get eaten up by taxes and it wouldn't go to some stupid advertising problem.
Fuck the AGDQ organizers for picking such a fucking scam charity instead of something smaller, more substantial. And fuck all the people who donate for donating to AGDQ instead of directly to save on taxes (and especially preferably donate to something that's not PCF) because they want their fanny joek read on stream so everybody knows how hilarious and how generous they are.
This whole shit is infurating and really shows how people don't actually care about helping others when donating, they just want it to be known that they're generous and totally good people when doing it.
>kill the animals
how is not saving something killing it?
if brossentia is there does that mean essentia is too?
>nothing in this marathon will ever live up to AGDQ 2013's Bonus Stream game of Mario Party 2 with Spikevegeta, Naegleria, Bassboost and Footbigmike
does the super long bonus stream even exist anymore
fuck this gdq
shits so anti-fun
Which one will it be? Some other huge charity?
All those huge international charities are shit for actually donating to. Most of your money just goes into bureaucracy. They may be non-profit, but that doesn't mean the people working there work for free. You're paying some guys salary so he can organize more charity events. You're literally paying them to make sure they get their next salary.
Here's the best thing to do if you actually want to donate and not just want to see a funny message read on stream
>check if there's any cause to donate to locally
>if there isn't, hold your donation and wait until there is
You won't get to feel as good because you don't get your greetings from germany read out loud, but you'll get the most out of your money.
If everyone did it like this, huge money moving charities that need 80% of their donations for themselves to survive wouldn't exist.
Also, Africa would stop getting carried by the west and start to get their shit together, maybe
Uyama is also on payroll of the PCF after one of the earlier AGDQs raked in big money for them. He esentially sold the AGDQ event to PCF so he could get a chunk of the donation money. He isn't being transparent about this at all and the analysis of the PCF's budgeting and work environment is really bad. It's a mutual financial interest for both parties, nothing more.
So anyone wanna guess what percent of the donations to Prevent Cancer actually go towards the organization, and what percent actually goes back into the Fat Asian's personal bank account?

lol this "community"
um, anon... romscout has been fired. why do you think this gdq is failing to raise enough money without the charity lead of twitch giving handouts...
Why is this allowed? Better yet, are there any speedrunners who are red pilled and actually express their disgust for how GDQs have evolved?
>um, anon... romscout has been fired. why do you think this gdq is failing to raise enough money without the charity lead of twitch giving handouts...
Well, expect SGDQ to be full on Uyama PCF money grabbing as well then. How long until they get a third or fourth event? Literal scam charity.
>Trihex is a good yoshi island speedrunner
I wish normalfags would understand that entertaining =/= good but since GDQs are all about the presentation and not the quality of skill I understand why they would be confused.
So what? You still have to wade through all the submissions to find it. If highlighted, you can just glance it and find where we're at.
It's a legit improvement/request, why are you defending GDQ's shortcomings?
What is it with r/4chan kids always fuckng up screenshots with overblown highlights and spam?
Many are not going any more because the entire avenue is filled with non-speedshitters making drama. It's supposed to be a comfy event only for speedrunners but PCF wants to maximize their revenue so they allow all these groupies and cliques in.
Im not really sure why everyone is criticizing the people who run this event, everytime I see that crowd of spergrunners in that room I know it must be a nightmare - please cut them a little slack
It's hard to get a gauge from people who go to GDQs since most of their fun from the even just comes from fucking around and meeting their speedfriends and nothing at all to do with the actual speedruns being done.
Why do people always do this? You point of a game is a shit speedrun, and they always come back with "2D games are shit speedruns"
2D is ALSO shit. They aren't exclusive. You can think of both of them as shit. It's not one or the other
Yeah big jon had all his runs denied ( including two very popular games ) because he did something the staff didn't like at SGDQ year. They only told him last week, rather underhanded.
Mario maker blind race was meh but i enjoyed the hard map race right after. It was cool to see panga play his own levels. Fucking grandboobear obnoxious commentary spoiled it a bit though.
It's not really an improvement, is it? It's just a handicap aid for you idiots. It's really pathetic that you can't find your way around a list of times without it blinking at you. Ask mom if she can dig up an old TV Guide. It'll blow your fucking mind.
You needing your hand held doesn't make hand holding an "improvement." Blinking lights aren't going to help me scroll down a list of times any faster, and they won't make ctrl f work any better. But this is what I get for arguing with the me generation. If you pretend that the things you want are something everybody needs then it makes it ok for you to demand them.
So I don't offend, what are you preferred pronouns?
It can be hard to pick out variation as an outsider.
If you know what to listen for, you can even pick out the difference between something like a Tennessee and Georgia accent.
At SGDQ he ran mario lost levels but he also wanted to have a 15 minute slot for nes open golf. He made a thread about it on the forum which was deleted.
During the run of lost levels a lot of donations asked if he would play nes open golf. During the run he pulled the cartridge out of his backpack and waved it around. The staff saw this together with the donations as raiding / going against their interest.
Now they refused all his runs ( despite being a very popular and liked runner ) for no reason. He e-mailed mike but he didn't answer. He made another thread wondering if there is a reason why they were refused but the thread was deleted without reply. At the event a staff member approached him and told him that they didn't like him flashing the kart as it 'distracted from the event'. Yesterday he also got harassed by security ( they hired a bunch of private security bouncers ) having to constantly show his badge and holding him up to check if he was 'not on the ban list'.
the goat of all goat goats
If you're serious, it doesn't matter since the real run doesn't count loading times.
If not, see image
>this generation suxx!! viva la revolutione!!!
mfw there are people near me that don't like megaman x
It sounds like he intentionally distrupted the event for his own interests, If they let him get away with it they would have to give everyone that amount of freedom.
Now imagine this room full of attention hungry furry virgins with mental problems all being allowed to use their fans to hijack the stream and flash whatever they want at the cameras. You can see how it's a GODDAMNED MIRACLE we haven't seen a dick or some lolicon shit flashed every time the cameras on the crowd.
mfw there are people near me that dont like megaman
Well yeah in dustforce there is literally not a single second where you aren't performing some sort of precise movement or difficult trick. It's hard to keep up and even harder to explain/commentate.
>another megaman block
Let me guess capcom is a sponser again this year.
They have to, it's not discriminating against Cosmo, it's celebrating his contributions to OoT speedrunning. They don't really have the choice of striking thousands of dollars worth of donations to refuse naming a file after one of the biggest runners of the game.
zfg doesn't want it as the filename
Heretic guy here.
Holy shit, is this even possible to speedrun that game? You do one false move and you're stucked and die because you're unable to move, and if you die, you don't have any weapons you need to clear waves that block you.
I am starting to doubt after one hour of trying.
>not running the best rhythm game
i really dont know how people can be this good at rythm games, and i've seen even more insane shit from some pc games
i've been playing osu lately and i'm kinda getting good at the standard osu, but taiko/mania are way too much
also why isnt there a /osug/, im sure there would be a decent sized community here
>if we weren't so truthful he would not have gotten a sex-change
play it a shitload on smite meister so you know all the levels like the back of your hand then check out some runs for strategies for different rooms etc
the "doom-like'" games are very random too so youve just gotta adapt to whatever happens
I checked out his twitter for the first time yesterday to check if he was here. apparently had some personal problems but he tweeted for the first time in a month last night
I hope he's fine and streams again, he was pretty cool
Only God can forgive taste as bad as this. Get to your nearest confession booth immediately, my boy.
someone is gonna get hurt if they don't give him something to break when he drops his combo
anyone else just like watching speedruns? The idea to actually speedrun seems like a fucking waste of time and autism though. Better to just see what the spergs can do when applying them selves.
>have support from a company who imports japanese arcade machines
b-but i started playing osu as a way to improve my mouse control
the other gamemode im really attracted to is taiko, as i used to be into percussion shit, and seems like osu is the best alternative to actual arcade play
no idea about the cheating, only read about it briefly, but yeah i hate the community because most are <17 retard weebs, but oh well, what can you expect
well look what happened when adrian went to agdq without cosmo what did he expect
Somebody make a webm of the keyboard with [shitposting intensifies] on it
>didnt bother with the timer so we'll never know when it's over limit
stepmania with finger weights is actually excellent finger control training and I play it to work on fingering on a guitar.
he's gonna play a song on like 300% soon just watch, it should bei nteresting.
You press buttons and things happen. You need to press certain things to archive a win status.
>random loli talking and screaming in song
why would you not just learn a real instrument
I think it's just these guys. I've watched people play stepmania and ouendan and shit before, it's just that the commentary here is sparse and bad and the song choices are horrible.
I got really excited at SHARD (COMBAT) and thought maybe they'd do some vidya music of shit run during the day or at least something that isn't generic vocaloid crap but w/e
Tetris was popular for two consecutive GDQs, so I can see why they'd choose to have a Stepmania demonstration (even though it's nowhere nearly as impressive).
Wouldn't be surprised with Osu! in SGDQ.
Hey at least it is not fingerbang touhou like /jp/ uses as goalhorn.
>the megaman block is only 3 games
>but there's this shitty stepmania "exhibition"
>all 2hu and meme music so far
I wouldn't be mad if they at least had good song choices but nooooo they have to go as generic as possible
may as well hang out at my local arcade, at least the DDR regulars are fit and impressive people with better musical tastes
RIP in Piss the bemani machines tho, that shit is gone 5ever, I miss electronic drumming ;_;
but I'm from /a/
can't you see all the anime?
this is just about as good as the first TGM showcase.
Audience singing along, everyone having fun. I can dig it.
it's a dump chart you fucking fag, no different than all the troll packs back in the day for the DDR games.
Not just the last one. Every chart.
They take a song and just put the bpm*1000 arrows on the screen spamming doubles in the middle.
I played Pump it Up for a long time and enjoy rhythm games, but this is just a reflex test.
