-You can't speedrun turn-based RPGs.
- ESA equivalent taking place in Chicago.
- Meetup / marathon in Santa Ana, CA, March 18th - 20th
- Marathon in Bloomington, MN, June 3rd - 5th
Holy shit I have given such little fuck about this year I did not notice it is about over.
This will be the first one to not make as much as last, even with the fakery.
Feels fucking amazing.
>insulting the board that spawned this shithole
Alright so this happens every year
/v/ decides they're the greatest people to ever exist and pick up speedrunning as they are the MASTERS OF VIDEOGAMES
What games do you think you will see these autists pick up for about a month, drop, and fuck off again
I'm gonna guess a souls game and tumblrtale
Quick guys we need more thousand dollar donations and we can hit 2 billion today.
Why did this year's AGDQ feel so bland? Even though the last two years weren't great, they at least were memorable. I completely forgot it was ending and I don't care at all. Also, they hit the bubble :^) They won't be able to top last year's 1.5 million.
Anyone have thoughts about that boost in donations to reach that $1 Million Hyop?
he died twice in the first 10 mins, the donation incentive was a joke, 1/4th of the run was load screens since they play any% unpatched, run would have been nothing but dying if he wasn't massively over leveled.
Because if they don't somehow beat last year's amount, it'll make it seem like the marathon is dying. I doubt they'll actually pump in large donations to reach 1.5 million though.
giant bomb fans, like spergs in a barrel
Keep interest in the game up so it will be mentioned in articles and whatnot as a form of advertising for SGDQ/AGDQ2017. But also so they will get the same funding they did this year for the next event akin to government sectors blowing their budget so they have reason to demand the same amount for the next fiscal.
Shit run for a shit category of a meh game.
There were good runs and fun moments. You are just a jaded shit that only likes gossip twitter drama.
y'ever just stop for a minute and realize that you're watching some deadbeats beat kids' games as fast as they can and that people dedicate thousands of hours of their lives to this """hobby""""
1. Approaching 1million is important. People will donate to round it up, and they'll donate en masse. Since the tracker AND the stream have delay, you will see it minutes after it happens.
2. Announcing all these big donations make them common. Raising the average amount donated will influence the next donations (people will adjust their donations towards that number unconsciously). This also works for twitch channel that display the max donor fyi.
This is known as anchor biais, which has application both in games and finance.
I never said one way or another. I simply pointed out you were a sperg for flipping out over it. You took the bait and ran miles.
I actually don't give a shit about twitter drama. I probably am just jaded though. Been following since 2012, not that long, but still. Most of the runs I watched were just boring or a trainwreck. If you have great runs you would like to recommend, go ahead. Being serious here, I would like to see possible runs I might have missed that were good.
Just imagine the mixed mood in the ballroom right now. Everyone knows this year made less money and there were very sketchy "donations". Well everyone except ysg who is just too innocent
or the evil mastermind behind it all.
Oof, scraping the barrel for defenses now. No wonder you like that shit podcast. Samefagging too? You have to be 18 to post here and it is obvious you aren't if you are willing to sink to these lows to win an argument with a complete stranger on an obscure image board about autists running games quickly.
And there you go, now you have my opinion. Too bad the show has such shitty fanbois.
Now I am off to bed, try not to get too mad about the bait. Nothing personal I just don't like /v/ and giant bomb
a long list of anonymous $1k donation during setup time with either no message or the message was very short and simple like, "prevent cancer goys". Take note of the fact they mention PREVENTING cancer and not "kicking its butt" or "killing cancer" because they donations were made by PCF employees who actually know what their organization is for. Which is ineffective cancer screening, ads, and money laundering.
Try again, faggot. You're responding to two different people. :^)
And as other stated, it's good to be seen as a growing event.
However I don't think it's that important since they didn't have big sponsors donation this year like last year bundle.
Viewers growth is more important long-term imo, it allows them to expand the venue for the next years and enables new ways of raising money (people talked about esports and stadium and honestly I wouldn't be surprised by it).
I'm more curious about the number of subscribers compared to last year desu
I'm not saying it happened tho, only why I'd do it.
I'm not the one stating that. This comes from studies and behavorial finance in general.
People ARE influenced by the number you spout at them even if it's unrelated to the matter.
If I put the average donation amount you'll adjust towards it.
If I put the year AGDQ started, you'll raise your average donation.
You're not knowingly adjusting the number but it'll happen.
Too sick to make one post but can still collect $120k salary
You think I don't know that? I'm literally every other poster in this thread, besides you.
Coming to AGDQ as we speak to lay the smackdown on CoolMatty for making less money this year.
Seriously, it's ded now, last AGDQ started horribly and got a little better in the end but even then it was memorable. Now they are doing stuff like returning plushies and blueglass, but it doesn't help. I hope PCF cuts AGDQ funding so maybe it could be saved still.
>reading this speech from a tablet
NOT FROM THE HEART, DEVOID OF SOUL
HE GOT FUCKING FATTER
MONO MY ASS
OH SHIT MATTY IS NOT tHeRE
HE TOOK MIKES BODY
THE TRANSITION IS COMPLETE
he really needs to cut down on those snacks
I mean theyre autistic so its ok
No bonus stream?? :(
What the fuck's with this AGDQ host guy, it seems like he already knew he was going to be hosted
Come on, this is bullshit. 2013 AGDQ's post-marathon speech had them handing out the mic to anyone who wanted it. It was so ridiculously awkward, no one could have possibly thought it was good. One skinny kid was talking about how he was going to miss all his five-day friends and just said "I tried to kill myself once, just throwing it out there." It was such a shit show.
Bonus stream was fun but the speeches were stupid. I'll miss the Mario Party money matches.
What happens now that they don't have Humble Bundle to give them 300 mysterious thousand dollars to make it seem like they got more money than last year? Who's going to kick cancer's butt?
He got banned after AGDQ'14 for reasons he just said were beyond stupid. It felt like instead of waiting for an incident, ie him upsetting someone on stream, to happen they just figured they'd give him the boot then.
>hasbeen csgo player turned survival game lets player stream personality steals wr from dedicated speedrunners
I want it to happen, I want to see the fallout of this happening. Summit is a genuine idiot when it comes to games beyond his niche.
As he should be! Bannings are not something that should be given easily. I understand Controllerhead's ban, for example, dude fucking punched someone's NES and was drunk a good chunk of the event apparently.
>it gets to the quake guy
fuck i forgot about this, it was awkward
you know actually it wouldnt have been as awkward if he just said hi mom and dad instead of ignoring it
Not really awkward, but the Outlast runner failing the donation incentive glitch after he spent like a minute talking about how he was so glad this met the donation goal because the guy who discovered the glitch was a friend of his who passed away from cancer and he was really happy to show the glitch.
He ended up screwing it up and retrying would have meant rewatching a long cutscene so he didn't retry.
I just wait for a moment when runner is on WR pace and they tell him to take that retarded detour. Either he says fuck you and gets WRm causing a lot of shitstorm, or he loses WR and causes a lot of shitstorm.
daily reminder that showvideogames was a thing
I would like to assume that he meant the hotel rooms and not the stream room.
I'm not American so I wouldn't care about too much about being there for the 4th of July. It'd be great to get sloshed with some speed friends.
>not a single real WR this agdq
At least inform yourself before you make claims.
>tfw so lonely I'm watching highlight and blooper reels from older gdqs
Yeah, I think that's going to be a mistake. On one hand its easier to get time off and might help viewer numbers, but on the other hand... it could also hurt viewer numbers, and increase airfare.
lol i was doing that but i had to stop. seeing how fun the older marathons were was almost too painful. seeing the touhou plushies, the funny donation incentives, the popular runners like werster, it just made me sad. also was anybody here around for the understreams? those were the best
1.0 any% is literally the WORST category of bloodborne to run and takes zero skill to do so.
>Half the run is prepatch load times
>Run to lamp, get sword and gun from dream, return to yharnam
>Run round corner, perform forest skip, run past everything to the area before shadows of yharnam
>Perform shadows of yharnam skip, kill shadows, use lamp at byrgenwerth
>Use soul/item dupe glitch to massively overlevel yourself and have a +9 weapon
>Kill rom with no risk or danger
>Run through amygdala yharnam
>Kill the one reborn with no risk or danger
>Run through nightmare of mensis
>Kill micolash with no risk or danger
>Kill mergo with no risk or danger
>Return to dream
>Talk to gehrman
This motherfucker slaps your couch, sits down and talks about everything you do and never shuts up. What do you do?
How can you try to make fun of him? He was literally the most watchable part of this agdq. He's knowledgeable, admits when he doesn't know something, engages runners/other couch members in contributing to the commentary, hypes up the runner by leading applause, etc. Fuck I want Blechy next to me when I'm fucking someone desu.
Goof Troop was a huge change up this year so it gets my vote
Usually it's just a small easy game that gets run because everyone played it at the dentist's office as a kid and loves it, but having one player two controllers really changed things around and made it much more intense than it usually is while still staying familiar
More things like 1 player 2 controller runs or one handed runs are a really nice way to mix things up other than just making it a race or doing some arbitrary boring category
I-is it over? Have the /v/irgins left? Can we talk about speedrunning again?
Not sure why I even went this year... but man it was pretty underwhelming.
So, how much did they raise in the end?
This year sure was one step back for them and I hope they rethink what course they are set on.
trihex just announced his girlfriend. BUT did you guys know that she DONATED like 50 bucks to him at first just to be able to talk to him.
literally paid trihex for a quick shag at AGDQ and then developed into a relationship
This happens with basically every ~~online celebrity~~
I know a league of retards player, a girl went to a tournament specifically to get in the guys pants and hook up with him because she knew he'd make it big
Think this basically is what happened to Cosmo too, look what happened to that mess.
Women are sacks of shit.
He did it boys. Years of putting up with annoying video game nerds, and he finally managed to use his e-celebrity to sleep with a white girl. He can't really go up from here at this point desu.
I would never post my stream here desu senpai. You're all a bunch of bulles.
No! Go away bullies!
I watch and support all /srg/eons who play games that aren't shit. There are a few people who joined thinking ironic shitposting was real (ElementalHeadcrab) that will say mean things in the thread guaranteed, but it's just one dirty Mexican.
>that one guy who will be trying to fit in by spamming how /v/ should leave for the next 2 months
