as oot any% shifts back to vc-j, my mind wanders to the ess adapters
and to the virtual console, that doesn't crash when gim is performed
and to the old kakariko route, resetting the console to save time
and to the timing method, the arbitrary start and end points
my mind wanders...
>you will never have noir sit on your lap
How long till they make him stop DISTRACTING THE STREAM
Also is that Warchamp? Always has the same cringey triforce hat and messy hair
>noir will never sit on your lap
why keep living
>torrent of other games in the same genre.
What are other good games from the genre released relatively recently? I can think of Dong Freeze, maybe They Bleed Pixels and Odallus but they're not the same type of platformer and not anywhere as good anyway. Nowhere near a torrent of quality games in the genre.
Oniken is amazing but not as good as shovel and their other game Odallus was better anyway, Tower of Heaven is just gimmicky and short, Jet Gunner I haven't heard of but looks more like a run an gun like Contra or Metal Slug.
What's the issue if nothing is happening? I'd prefer this shit any day over a stupid fucking e-sport-like interview.
>every time announcer starts reading in happy voice, realizes it's a sob story but continues in happy voice anyways
Its not us who have the problem with it, Mike said that you're not supposed to have "distracting" shit on stream like 2hu plushies and crossplay
would you fuck a close friend's significant other if you had the chance, /srg/?
>they're supposed to screen the donations themselves in case something got past the other screeners
>they never judge the tone or try to sound out tricky words in their head beforehand
IT'S NOT FUCKING HARD
YOU'RE NOT ON A TIMER
YOU CAN BE PLANNING YOUR PERFECT DONATION READ DURING THE TEN MINUTES OF GAMEPLAY WHILE THE PLAYER IS COMMENTATING
I don't really understand why they're so agaisnt people spouting memes or whatever. It can be kinda cringy, but at least it's better than looking at people staring into nothing with a straight face.
I would like to know this also. 200cc is fast and all but are there any good interesting tricks & glitches to it or is it a standard race with someone who actually doesn't fuck up 200cc?
Shit, you made me realize I misread that other post completely, excuse my post. I didn't know that though, that's retarded and no fun.
Who cares? You don't walk up to people on the street, asking them who they're fucking do you?
>yfw you realize women are genetically predispositioned to be better at vidya and speedrunning but none of them have the chutzpa to actually get good at either and instead rely on "lol im a gurl" to carry their popularity in place of actual skill and dedication
>faggots rather stare at a Johnny Rotten's ass than sexy rosa in her bikersuit
Yep, Nintendo removed absolutely all potential big skips that were present in MKWii by putting that nazi Lakitu that takes you back into the course as soon as you leave Nintendo's designated safe zones.
MKWii takes infinitely more skill than this garbage.
reminder mario runners are the bottom of the barrel
Serious question that agdq makes me think about. Why do so many more men show signs of being on the autism spectrum then women?
>dat little ponytail
I can't not into homo, he's just too cute!
>lower reaction times and critical thinking skills across the board
>genetically predispositioned to be better at vidya
care to explain or are you the anon from earlier who just posts unsubstantiated claims and expects everyone to believe him
I don't know if i'll fall asleep within this run
Superior multitasking capability and concentration.
Higher levels of myelin (nerve sheathing), responsible for fine motor control and muscle memory (women can reproduce precise movements more regularly than men given equal training).
High myelin levels are also present in many Asians; their being good at vidya isn't just a cultural thing. It's particularly helpful in sports like baseball and golf where you are largely stationary and need to make a very specific, deliberate movement; Tiger Woods, for example, has a mutation that causes higher myelin levels.
Since we're watching a Let's Play what are all of yours favorite Mario Kart game for casual play. Mine's Mario Kart 64.
>people on /srg/ constantly tell people to go back to /v/
>all /srg/ does is complain all day, every day
>/srg/ is literally /v/
wake me up when the let's plays are over and super metroid starts. decent agdq as a whole but some of these game choices are braindead.
Most of the other games had skills involved that casual players usually don't have like glitches or stuff like that. I mean you're right, but it's a girl doing a playthrough of a casual babby game at a speedrun event, so yes, i think it's legit to point that out.
MK8 (with the DLC) is best for casual, DD is by far the best for MP.
Doubledash, purely nostalgia. Got into Mario Kart with 64, and Doubledash was just more good shit.
I wish Nintendo didn't bring in ideas and throw them out though. Should have kept two player karts.
>doggy never got a bikersuit
For shame nintendo.
Double Dash by far for normal races, 64 for the battle versus modes.
>anything fresh is played in the ass hours of the morning
>days filled with massive amounts of mario/mega man/zelda
nice "event". i know those are the popular things but at least let some other things get a little of the spotlight for one day
>With a girl SO RANDOM XD gamer
While it's true that women have slightly longer reaction times, that's only a hindrance in some forms of gaming, few of which apply to speedrunning. Highly rehearsed games where everything is known timing and getting your inputs right don't rely on reaction time. Frame-perfects are entirely prediction; regardless of whether you're a man or a woman, human reaction time isn't ever that low. There's a difference between executing static tricks in something like a Mario platformer (which women should be better at) vs. actually having to react as in a fighting game (where men would be dominant).
If you really want to get into reaction time shit, the brain processes sound much faster than light and reaction speeds follow accordingly. Women have slightly better hearing.
She's one of those people who can't keep her mouth closed. Not just figuratively like she wont stop talking but her mouth hangs open when she's doing anything.
Also the quality of a run seems to be directly related to how often they bring up how difficult it is.
>have to wake up at 5:30am for work all week
>have a bank job so I can watch twitch and youtube videos while processing accounts
>mfw all the runs this week were comfy and interesting
closed that shit so fast lol
Is this the infamous Mario kart that everyone loses their shit for and sells a billion copies? Looks borong as fuck, and barely different from the kartshit I played as a kid
Even Sonic Transformed and Wipeout looks more technical
>mario kart "speed run"
>can't even keep top 5 against the CPU
>alright peace call me when speedruns are on
The next block is TASBot
How long until tumblr starts pretending twitch chat is only cancer when there's a grill playing and that this was the most epicest run in the history of gdqs?
>3/3 on that trick
>that has really strict timing
>this is really technical
Now he's talking about how if you don't turn correctly you can run into a wall. Like wow thanks commentary guy, I thought you'd crash right through it and win instantly
i've never understood people who think this shit unironically
we're on the internet
you can't just put tits or ass in an image and expect me to give a shit, i can go to any one of thousands of sites to get actually explicit shit for free
It is fun with friends, it is designed for that.
Most boring shit ever.
>OMG WHAT DOES TUMBLKR THINK I NEED TO KNOW MY UNDERAGED DRAMA ASS IS TOTALLY NOT OBSESSED
You're right. I actually turned off the stream for the Megaman X block. Non-NES Megaman games are awful.
What else was bad? DMC4 was being run by an idiot so that wasn't great. The guy running TMNT 4 missed some really important skip and then fucked it up when he tried to reset so that was embarrassing.
Other than that, all the 7am - 4pm runs were fun to watch.
>oh ffs she isn't that bad
She is though, this is like watching someone play MK because they only have 1 controller so you have to take turns instead of playing the game properly.
naegleria is right, f-zero really is the only racing game worth a damn in speedrunning
>they gave a primetime weekend slot to some chav bitch speedrunning mario kart
whose dick did she suck?
>Hit nonstop by lightening and blue shells
>Has fallen off the track
She is terrible, likely distracted by woman's troubles like her period or Chad boyfriend.
Glad barely anyone is donating during her SHIT run, hopefully she wont be invited back next year, because she fucking sucks shit.
>What else was bad?
Good question. Tomb Raider was pretty dire.
Though mainly the runs have just been kind of bland. The ones that are actually interesting get vastly outnumbered.
>yeah <indistinguishable> harder to do <indistinguishable> 200cc <indistinguishable> 150cc
This haha, wonder if she is thinking about dick right now, most likely. I like all those fucking white knight commentators too.
"Aw poor baby, the GAME messed you up, it wasn't your fault at all. Tis' an issue with the game!"
Remember that time when someone brought a buttonmashing running arcade game, and they noticed some pole kid had the wr, so everyone kept trying to beat it in the understream and it was hype as fuck?
>a lot of people don't know sand has different physics
nigger I've never played the game and I just assumed it did BECAUSE IT'S A RACING GAME AND IT'S SAND
>Hit a wall
FUCKING HELL she is horrible, can't even do normal shit.
>Hit by another shell
Losing my shit here, worst speed runner of AGDQ2016.
I also love how she isn't commenting because she doesnt know shit, has the guy who knows how to play talk about it.
Well lets go over what was good.
>Hat in Time
>Crypt of the Necrodancer
>Crazy Taxi 2
>the whole Sonic Block
>Ninja Gaiden 2&3
>Secret of Mana
That's pretty good, I think.
What's with the impotent nerd rage guys
when it's a guy doing a shit run it's a shit run but when it's a female it's because all girls are whores
Guys I missed the ratchet and clank speedrun how was it
no. the runners of mk8 are godly. you have no idea how fucking dedicated some of them are. this runner is not even top 100.
watch the demos here if you want to see how optimized this game is:
Gonna let you in on a secret
No one actually cares about accents but Brits
I've got a bunch of British friends and whenever they hear someone else's accent they're jumping all over each other trying to guess wher they're from. And if there's a character in a TV show or videogame with a British or _______ accent, they're always critiquing it
>oh that sounds more like south wales, you wouldn't hear a real devontonian pronounce queue like that
The rest of the world just does not give a shit. You all sound the same, Upsidedownies included. Deal with it.
That middle guy on the couch... is he the GameXplain person who does Cool Bits? I had to check and it's unusually similar.
Maybe they explained something like that already and I missed it.
Nope, I don't go to that shithole.
I was banned from here until yesterday for saying dicks are delicious, though
>Stupid dumb bitch fucks up again
>White Knight commentator
>"EVERYONE misses that EVERYONE"
God I wish I was there, I'd just take his mic and tell her how shit she is, likely make the bitch cry.
>tune into agdq for the first time this week
>some beardless hagrid thing that cant speak properly is "speedrunning" Mario kart
>guy on couch can't be quiet
how do you guys watch this shit?
Why are they continually cocksucking the volunteers on stream? They're volunteers.Tell them thank you in private or give them something.
How bad is this run compared to the IL's? Why not run with EZ CPU's?
Chances UHHllc makes 1.5m? 0%
Chances UHHllc makes 1.0m with real donations? 33%
Chances UHHllc makes 1.0m with "real" donations? 100%
They said you could get use out of the coin by using it right as the shell / lightning hits you, adding a coin back after you're hit.
If you're going to bitch about this let's play, at least do it right.
werster could've smuggled himself in one of her chin folds and saved agdq
>Be part of the 1%
>Waiting for her run to finish
>When its over I'm donating 10k with the comment "Glad that dumb woman was gone"
Bet you they won't read that shit out.
I had never seen the Origins speedrun. The runner explained a lot of stuff and the run itself is interesting. You're right, now that I think about it, the whole Castlevania block was pretty good.
did I hear wrong, or is she referring to "200 cc" as if it were a velocity?
like "we're going at 200 cc"
i like these comic memes does anyone have anymore?
Nigger, I can even peg the race just by looking at their face. They don't even have to open their mouths and speak the language.
I know hicks with backyards larger than your whole fucking island. What makes you think you have any variation in accenting that matters? You dumb fucks couldn't even find the Isle of Man for a hundred years despite it being so close you can hit it with a rock thrown from Whitehaven.
I realize your dialect is dying and you'll soon be learning Arabic, but that's no reason to jump down my throat.
Reminder that Reddit crowdfunded nearly 2,000 bucks for this run to happen
my first and likely only cap of agdq. this marathon has been uninspiring.
So what are you guys doing instead of watching this "run"?
How in the fuck is this even a speedrun? He is literally just playing the game.
Wouldn't it be better to select 1 other player and leave it in last place so NPCs have less chance of getting Lightnings and Blues?
The whole Awful Games block
Rockman 4 BCAS
Mega Man 2
Super Mario Bros 2
Rayman Legends was good if you liked and played the game, for someone who didn't it was boring
Monkey Ball was ok
Batman race was ok
Kaizo Mario was ok
Mario Maker was a fun little diversion but not really speed running
Vendetta was kinda cool but maybe it's because I've never heard of the game
Goof troop was not coop which makes it automically shit.
Playing pixel puzzles birds and am now making dinner.
There's a gap in the vods during ZFG's OoT run
>we did it reddit
What a fucking shithole. At least i know to never watch this Rookathon shit.
Also i'll never get people giving other people money for literally absolutely nothing at all in return.
It was over 5 hours long, but the majora's mask all items run was pretty comfy.
Shame most people probably missed it because it was in the middle of real nigga hours.
They had to save the prime time for aussie cart.
>in the n64 version you can do cool glitches to skip large portions of the map and go fast
>here you drive around like in any other lets play
kill me please this world has nothing more to offer
>third time the commentator didn't get the track name right
>tfw almost called it a map because they keep calling it a map even though it's a track
Hero Core, DKC2 102% were also pretty good and the Secret of Mana run was maximum comfy
The reddit crowdfunding was to pay for this Aussie cunt's vacation to America so she can play a shitty Mario Kart run. If she didn't come to AGDQ then they wouldn't have made any less money.
How pathetic do you have to be to do shit like this?
>120 IPs in this thread
What are you all letsplaying?
>shoutouts for female speedrunnings
>everybody claps instantly
>Mario Kart 8
Is this seriously the 8th Mario Kart game?
I only know the SNES and 64 ones and double dash.
Beta thirst is what ruins all gaming communities. Seriously what the fuck is this shit? They paid this hambeast $2500 to come over and do a lets play of a casual game at a speedrunning marathon. Everyone cheers for it as well.
if you ask me they are nowhere near strict enough, they need to put "triggered" as an autoban. so fucking sick to see that word everywhere. it's like if "u mad bro" and "salty" had a retarded demon baby
There is a saying in the fighting game community "STSFN" which means "Save that shit for nationals". Has there ever been a run in an AGDQ that actually showcases new tech and is worth watching over someones prerecorded world record run with commentary? I have no idea why anyone would watch an ADGQ its akin to watching your favorite movie on cable edited for tv when you have the movie on Bluray.
