- ESA equivalent taking place in Chicago.

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...
>looked her up on twitch
I changed my mind
>Noir will never feel your rock hard dick
literally nothing funny out of the ordinary happened this gdq, there were a couple decent runs, spikevegeta made a fool out of himself, 2/10 i'll watch the next one cuz i'm a fag
>every run now is some arbitrary category or has some unnecessary gimmick next to it
Some people kept talking and saying things like "basically" or "oddly (enough)" or whatever
Chat started spamming "BASICALLY" and that evolved into "MingLee BASIC LEE MingLee"
there was a guy who kept saying "basically" like every other word so twitch chat started spamming that
and of course, being twitch chat they will continue to beat the horse until long after it has turned to dust
>LET ME HEAR YOUR ANGRIEST BOO, AUDIENCE!
Stop grinding in games that don't fucking need it. It doesn't look good and having it as the premier game is fucking stupid. That's what I'm bitching about.
Yes, I do speedrun.
>there are /v/ shitters in here talking about fucking MOBAS.
I can't wait for this marathon to be over.
Is Puwexil commentating the Final Fantasy run? I like him.
dota2 is just so boring to me, Id rather play actual characters than some generic shit like "forst archer" or whatever also dotas graphics are eye grating
Thats pretty true but I just play casually, and came back to league for a bit because of the graphical overhauls I'll probably quit forever again in a month or two
is this announcer mikesmb? i thought he got banned after cucking werster before cucking was even a meme?
mfw speedrunning actually exists in hearthstone
Peaches missed the deadline for submissions, mostly due to GDQ's poor communication. Without anything to run he didn't feel like going. He volunteered to call in over Skype for the blast corps run but the human bean said that was forbidden and exclusively for game staff.
in case you were wondering why he wears the hat
That's pretty shitty, I noticed Kirk didn't even mention P_ about the PBJ and said "this guy we know" so I assumed P_ was banned.
That kind of pisses me off desu - it's a skype call and P_ would of had so many good questions to ask Martin.
fuck I was gonna post that
>tfw you're gonna be nothing more than a lonely shitposter your whole life
d-does it get better :(?
They were warned beforehand not to say his name because it would "generate drama". It's why there was no mention of him when grav was naming all the other runners and when kirk was talking about how tricks were discovered.
this deerforce thing was kind of funny when it was something only the super metroid runners/people who knew the run did
now that its some hyped up thing that everyone gets quiet for ahead of time it seems completely fucking retarded
THAT FUCKING PACMAN
Why is that game not at Mike Uyama LLC events?
Once everyone is in the same room for final speech... That is when I will begin my genocide day... Mark my words. It will be glorious.
Just play videogames and fap.
ITS REAL NIGGA
>GDQ will never again support a charity that isn't about printing posters or financing buttplugs for people with aspergers
Then, yes, I'm part of your problem. And everything good in life that becomes popular gets run by overpaid corporate douches eventually, I recognize the decline in quality but accept it as growing pains. Perhaps in the future they'll find the right balance, there sure is enough outside pressure to do so.
It's Coffee Knight dammit!
Why is the final game of these marathons always a game that shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as speedrunning? At least he isn't doing a fucking 100% run I guess.
Reminder to violently murder everyone you see wearing an agdq shirt.
bigjon's a fat fetishist, only he at least has the decency and self-respect to try to keep some muscle on
there's some gainer videos floating around of him chugging protein shakes and he had a profile on the gay bear-and-gainer-oriented dating site grommr, though it's since been mysteriously deleted
i have those videos saved and i uploaded one of them because i couldn't fucking believe i was seeing a dude i'd jacked off to at a videogames event
it got out of hand from there
No, because it's true. He molested Zfg by shoving Daddy up his ass... Then Daddy couldn't stand seeing Zfg anymore so he cut his eyes out. And that's why Daddy doesn't have eyes.
Scroll through the donations list anything labelled anonymous and $50/$100/$200 is generally fake and someone has used a script. Also they forgot to turn it off or it's shit and it's been repeating donations or donating a 2nd time. The donations list can be found under the event tab on the AGDQ.com website
>interacted with an adult
nice going memeble fag
Yes that shill always gives me a horrible chill.
Isn't this rule a bit hypocritical coming fro Niggeria? I mean he was banned for stinking before... https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mA1OmbC78jlaFzxR_1hIdnPWjTn1a7wpYHaq9_nmhIQ/edit
the past years have been going to fucking shit, this was the final nail in the coffin, I'm just glad its over
now to wait to see if NASA is any good
>tfw hardly felt that comfy marathon feeling this year
Maybe SGDQ will be better
Last game he was on was spyro after he got yelled at by security.
i always considered tactics to be the purest FF but in terms of general enjoyment i think 9 appeals to a lot of people who like jrpgs and 10 for casuals, but 4 is just left in the past honestly, a bit less exciting than zelda or something
im not even making memes right now
>it's popular so it's bad
9 appeals to fags who claim to love classic FF yet never actually played 1-6. I'll agree that Tactics is the best FF though but it's not fair to include it when talking about mainline games.
FF girls suck, it is all about the daddies and manly men like Cyan or Auron.
Because he was having fun. There's a strict no-fun policy at GDQs.
So, semi-offtopic here. Why did Cosmo or whatever the fuck the idiot names himself now drop out of speed running? I know a lot of the people that were more of our-bois have not been that big during the past few marathons.
i agree that its not fair to rank them with tactics, but i don't think its really fair to dismiss 9 (or even 8) because they appeals to fags. They're both pretty decent games. 3, 4, 1, ect are great too but it's pretty much apples to oranges. honestly that's why its so hard to rank the FF series, they're pretty diverse overall.
He got better and better with his presentation, right up until the last coffee cup.
Cosmo went back to OOT any% shortly after the GDQs got really big. He got his record time and thought it couldn't be beaten... Only for it to be broken not too long after the fact. In that time Demoon had already stormed past his times in Wind Waker. Pretty sure it broke him.
Now he's a girl.
Cosmo dropped speedrunning around the time Smash 4 came out and chose to stream that instead. I don't even think it has anything to do with being BTFO at his speedgames, or his bizarre personal problems.
So have I and not including Tactics, 7 is my favorite followed by 4 and 5.
People act like 7 ruined everything but it still has a lot of shit that stays true to what FF is. I feel like people that hate it are really blind and ignorant to see past the popularity or change in setting.
>don't do anything that will get the stream banned from Twitch/Hitbox
How is anyone supposed to know what this means? Just saying the name "Cosmo" is enough to get you permabanned from Twitch these days.
he's definitely gay
A shame they are not running Final Fantasy VII because to me and many whole generations it was like a dream you don't want to end when you wake up.
Its 1997, a very sunny day and you're running back home, you hear the ice cream truck but even if your tong screams for a Popsicle your heart pumps you to get back home with the game you just bought with your savings, as you arrive home your mom offers you a glass of lemonade, you kindly wave your hand saying Hi and not now crawling to the console near the tv in the living room and popping the disc in, and all of the sudden as the game plays the intro on the tv you knew this memory will be carved in your brain for the rest of your life, seconds later your wife ask if you're OK while telling you shes taking the kids out to see grandma, yes, you are full-grown up but you still have the feel of that sunny Sunday when you first get final fantasy vii and your life changed forever, go play this game I'm not going to spoil the plot because you already played till the disc wearied out, and if you're new, embrace the first time you push the start button cause you will remember it the rest of your life, at least that's what happened to me.
Well I think you just answered your own question as to why you got banned.
What has PCF done that's corrupt? Not doubting you, just curious.
I wish they would just have MCF as their charity again.
just think about it
you're making a ton of money for a fake charity
you see and control millions of dollars all the time
you wouldn't figure out a way to get some of it?
>sabin will never let you feel his massive arms
What philosophical value does FF7s story and characters offer?
its a port from the DS, it actually is good
it's just the DS/mobile remake, ported to PC
it's pretty okay, the 3d version has the best localization so far, but battles are a little slow and the low-poly 3D was cute on the DS screen but looks kinda meh in HD
Dont fucking buy it, or any steam version remake. They are all IOS ports with problems and the 3d just does not fit the nes games.
>Lemmy won as Kain's name
7 was honestly pretty great, but it was also the game that got it stuck in Square's head that graffix were important
you see it throughout the rest of the series; they continued to put more and more emphasis on art and cinematics and the games suffered for it
up until XIII which had nothing going for it besides graffix (and the soundtrack), and XIV which was a fucking unplayable debacle
So it does not offer anything noteworthy?
I really liked the message of ffcc; face the future with dedication but never forget your beloved friends and family, else you migth lose yourself.
The best FF will be the steam version of 9 because of the no encounter setting, fixes the game's biggest problem
But really the entire series is mediocre and you should play better jrpgs instead
>tfw the only final fantasies I've played are Crystal Chronicles and Tactics Advanced
Cloud's entire design and backstory is pretty much a satire of JRPG protagonists and the weird power fantasies they represent. FF7 is actually meta as fuck if you look into it.
why are animeNEETs spamming their supernormal stimuli images while this event goes on?
I'm just now watching the Mario Maker block to see people embarrass themselves, and does that Mitch guy ever shut up about how deaths are RNG Manipulation? I remember he did it during SMB3 as well. It wasn't funny the first time, it's not going to be funny if you repeat it ad nauseum.
>that fucking goiter on his cheek
did they ever figure out what the hell that was?
alright, i'll bite
FFVII was a landmark moment in the interactive medium. At the time, developers were experimenting with full-motion video cutscenes, but they were ugly and jarring, featured D-rate actors and generally detracted from the gameplay experience. FFVII was the first game to seamlessly integrate its cutscenes into the visual style of the game; VII moved from gameplay to storytelling and back without missing a beat, something no one else had been able to do before. VII also was one of the first games to handle the death of a character in a real, human way-Aeris's death wasn't a sacrifice that roused the party towards its goals
like Anna,but a crushing blow that shocked the party to its core. That's what VII is about; finding the strength to move on with your life in the face of loss and, indeed, in the face of death.
I forgot to include Crisis Core, I played a good amount of that even though I never beat it.
Also does Kingdom Hearts count?
Oh, while I dont know the numbers, and Im too lazy to dig it up, AGDQ staff ARE paid by PCF, and the Director of PCF makes 200k+ a year which is almost 6% of their total expenses. For comparison's sake, MSF's Director makes like 150k or something, and is less than 0.1% of their total expenses, and is a much larger charity.
I don't fully trust PCF, but I don't think they're actually a scam, but they're not the best charity.
Anothr 1k donation by anonymous with no comment!
Cheer up, have a happy face that you will never caress :c
let the NEETS be, girls dig a man who cooks big time
>Environment doesn't look filtered
>wanting to hang out with girls instead of speedboys
Is the GBA version the best to play, compared to PS1 and SNES?
Are there any Hotline Miami speedrunners here?
Can someone skip through this and tell me anywhere they think I can improve?
I am going to practice the time save on Vengeance with the knives but I can't think of any other time saves I can do. (other than dying less)
