Kill yourself, a tranny freak who doesn't speedrun or even play video games has absolutely no relevance in this community whatsoever, no matter how hard he forces himself, he will always be absolutely no one with no relevance or say in anything.
>trying to speedrun a fast paced game while in mumble with friends
>having to press my push to talk to respond which messes me up
>when i do talk my words are kind of messed up in tone and pitch cause im stressed out from the speedrun
I think this whole "ironically act like an SJW" thing this general has is starting to be unironic
This is what happens when you pretend to be retarded. People start to believe that this is the way to behave.
>the people in this general
the trannies have destroyed this community haven't they?
I see why goose left this degenerate filled joke of a hobby
Yeah this thread is filled with transfreaks for some reason. Too bad they're not so far into their metamorphosis that they kill themselves, still in the attention whoring stage.
Oh hell no. Sonic autism should stay in Sonic.
something kinda cool
>think you're bullshitting
>alan rickman is really dead
fuuuuuuuck guess I'm watching die hard tonight
This. Also, a reminder.
Leaderboards are there to show the World Record holder and a list of the other runners. 2nd, 7th, 25th, all irrelevant, anything below the top run is just there to show who else attempts to run the game but fails.
LEGIT PRO TIP #4 - Breaking the enemy's resistance
True excellence in speedrunning lies not in reclaiming the WR again and again, but in making your enemies quit the game.
Remember this lesson in all your speedrunning activity and you will not only take WRs but keep them. A master of this technique will create an aura around him that can kill a game's community by simply announcing that he will join it.
Show everyone that you are playing to win and that fun is of no concern to you. Don't encourage competition. Mock the people you beat. Keep prerecorded runs incase your WR gets beaten and shove it into their face how they're not as good as you and how you didn't even think the video worth uploading. Bend the rules to their extreme limits and cry oppression when a run gets rejected. Constantly start and engange in discussions on rules and categories and who should be mod.
In general: Be someone people will want to stay away from and at the same time establish a presence in the community that makes it impossible for them to do so.
no, outta here
does anyone here even watch caveman or are you guys just obsessed with him because you find https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H50nqenYMDM funny? I mean his streams get like at most 40 views so I'm guessing it's the latter.
It's definitely the latter. /v/ is like that too. Complete and utter obsession with the "I would prefer you be quiet" meme and that's all they know about him.
It's even worse on /v/. They treat him like a god without even knowing that he's a Sony Pony who streams at 144p and is completely uninteresting to boot. But hey he created a meme so all hail Caveman amirite?
people i like:
Is Snes9x really legit enough for running games?
The last release of that was like fucking 4 years ago, while higan had a recent version released just a few months ago.
But then again I hear higan is insanely CPU hungry
If they are invalid why are there a shit ton of emu runs listed on speedrun.com?
>but muh sda
no one uses sda, it's so out of date it still has runs from fucking 5 years ago that were long broken
they have retarded standards that make it so that even if you do manage to get your shit together and record a high enough quality vid, you have to babysit the run through rounds of verification and publication that can take up to a year. no one is willing to bother with sda anymore because they are total shit.
Probably run by the same pussies who come on /srg/ and complain about how dead speedrunning is and swoon over the glory days without realizing they're what changed, not speedrunning.
tfw forced to listen to japanese girls making mouth sounds since none of my boys are streaming
What's the easiest jrpg I can speedrun so I can pretend like I'm a speedrunner?
I guess I should give up then. Final Fantasy is too gay, shit and boring for me.
srg? What a fucking joke. A bunch of little girl cartoon watching child molesters who spend all day trying to be outrageous in a thread on their weeaboo site hoping to get replies from other neckbeard forever alones.
>start learning a game to speedrun
>turns out the game is way less fun this way
every dime :D:D
>tfw you realize you speedrun not because speedrunning is fun but just because you want some attention from when you get a WR
Speedrunning for fun is pathetic. If you're not in it to be number one, you'll never be good.
The only people that will cry at this post are pathetic casual runners who don't have what it takes to dedicate themselves to being the best.
What if you only learned how to speedrun very popular games that have glitchy broken any% runs so you can impress people at a party who will bet you money you can't beat the game in under x minutes?
are you guys ready for the get yourself 12 hour challenge maker speedrunning breakdown?
>speedrun game you love
>you just ruin it for yourself and won't play it for fun again most likely
>speedrun game you don't really care about
>will be hard to stick in there because you don't care about it
>won't play it for fun again most likely
this is acceptable when you want to know every little intricacy of the game so you know how to go fast. you aren't going to play it casually anymore because no reset runs and races become the casual play
>tfw the animal crossing all debts run is held by some foul mouthed grind monkey bitch who looks like she's 16
You know what's next
It says she's the moderator does that mean when I slam her fat cunt into another dimension with my time she'll reject it because women can't have any power?
Look at Merkel, poor Europe.
Did Stiv get any funny donations during his run this year?
You know that just because someone says something, that doesn't make it correct
He pressed the A button. It is literally an A press. Whether it's held or not is completely irrelevant.
RE4 runners complain about new skip because it only works on steam 60 category (yes they have categories over frame rate) because it isn't the GCN version which is 20 minutes slower but for some reason "better"
I shouldn't be surprised after all these are the same people who pause mid run to go afk to shit or pick their nose.
desu lad it would've been better to say that he gets two jumps with one press, instead of a half press which technically makes no sense by definition. The full press is there, you just accomplish more with it.
There is no definite proof either way. The only proof she is female is that she claims so. The only proof that he is male is this picture that carries his username in the filename and which he called ugly without explicitly stating that it is him.
His logic of "in the context of a full run, we round it down to 2" winds me up
You pressed the A 3 times during a full run. Just because you entered a level doesn't reset it.
A press doesn't have 3 states either
It has 1 state. A press. The holding and releasing are 2 extra states.
>want to stream but i dont want anyone to watch
Uh anon. That's the whole point of streaming.
If you don't want people watching you, just play your game offline.
fw you wanna do the 12 hour challenge but you also wanna do something else that weekend
>when you don't practice at all and get better
The 100% objective scientifically proven way to enjoy speedrunning and not be a miserable failure of a human being (eg. grind monkey or donationfag)
After having enjoyed playing a game casually define the end of the game
Find fast ways to get there incorporating any glitches that speed things up
Continue routing until you are satisfied you have found a fast workable route
Start running the game from start to finish and after you complete runs implement any improvements you find
Repeat until you are "satisfied" or bored.

I also found a livejournal and a photobucket run by the same person, but I couldn't find a specific way to connect it to krystal besides the general interests.
whoever xe is, xe looks much cuter in this picture I think
Consider Ape Escape 3 for your 12h speedrun challenge /srg/! The game costs ¥1,234 on the PS3's Japanese PSN store. It's also the current fastest version of the game.

What the fuck, at what age does the degeneracy begin?
My point is that I don't think schala.jpg is Krystal unless someone can draw a definite connection between the two, besides that Krystal once used the username schala for one day.
wrong Z_ bud
you mean z_
us Z_'s are off
maybe later tho
It was a fun ride nonetheless, now back to running
Actually I changed my mind.
Xir livejournal matches up a couple more usernames found ED, which leads me to lean towards it being Krystal.
That's before speedrunning, remember to take everything in moderation, even your favorite hobby
There isn't. Krystal and the people who have personally known her denied a long time ago that it was her. Only srg and its avidity to "expose" a far more talented and *yikes* female runner that has stayed out of drama, and that clown Goose who keeps trying to stir shit in a community that he barely even belongs to anymore, have been trying to push the narrative about krystal being some cheating, deceiving man who, for some reason, lies about "his" gender. But now that the evidence you were so eagerly demanding is here and it proves that the picture of the person you were claiming was Krystal is, in fact, not her, maybe, after all these months of incessant and pointless bugging, srg will swallow its pride and admit that they were wrong entirely and that they can't go around "crusading" about anything they don't like if they don't have any evidence or solid grounds on which to stand.
Beuchi's pictures are 99% gone since Fotolog (sort of the MySpace that Spanish people used) shut down a week ago and took with it all pictures.
But I managed to salvage this, enjoy.
>haven't watched runnerguy in eons
>mfw he looks homeless
>not lurking in the shadows and laugh at the ensuing drama
baka desu senpai
well based on that conversation im going to say it wont last very long
you're cute enough m1, just "glomp" them and then compliment their cosplay, most of them are so unused to attractive male attention that they won't hesitate to come if you invite them to your hotel room
>tfw ur bad and u feel like you let your viewers down
Just a quick reminder that if your speedgame is shorter than 4 hours it's not long enough to be considered a proper speedgame
Just a quick reminder that if you're not the Lebron James of speedrunning then you're not a proper speedrunner
>find a runner through one of the GDQs
>Speedruns Bioshock mostly
>seems like a chill guy, doesn't get many viewers (has only 80 right now)
>find out that he has his own website
>has merchandise you can buy
Why does he think he will sell fucking t-shirts when barely anyone knows who he is?
bloodthunder? i didn't recognise him without his beanie on
just another twitch shitter trying to sell out
also his site lol
>calling for your "gf's" attention with "dude"
>calling your "gf" "dude"
>tfw cute but no gf
>tfw no wr either
>tfw some people manage to have both
Probably not. We'll get a replacement for AGDQ for sure but I think AGDQ is done after what happened.
Then again no one remembers anything on the internet. So by the time 2017 rolls around everyone would have forgotten.
halfway into watching the mm 100% run
thiefbug is p qt but a little awkward
phil is way past cool
fgg looks like maybe terrorist
trev is a person
this game is pretty much minigames and cutscenes and text mashing: the speedrun
if anyone wants to know more ill update with more info as i keep watching!
>oh hey, Pie's streaming more lawyer tonight, I'll tune in
>twenty minutes of looking at his splash screen while random remixes of random AA songs play
>another twenty minutes of looking at the main menu while he rambles on about whatever the hell
