    AGDQ 2017 is about to start! With a baby I doubt I'll watch all that much, but I'm looking forward to the Descent II run. I spent so many hours on the original in my childhood . . .

    The TASbot block looks interesting too. They're going to do something with the NES Classic?

    Awesome! I haven't watched as much as I'd like in the past few years, but when I was unemployed I would watch a ton. It's what really got me into watching speedruns.

    "I AM THE GODDESS OF EXPLOSIONS" *flex* *pose* *flex*

    "I know, Mom."

    "Okay. What do you want?"

    "MORE EXPLOSIONS"

    "Sure!"

    :lol:

    Watched the Action Henk, Super Dram World, Joe and Mac 2 run, and the Human Fall Flat video. Those were some cool runs. Dram55 was the first speedrunner I liked when he was doing SMW 100% runs. I stopped watching as much when he started doing Kaizo, but Dram is the man. I also watched the Catechuman run.

    It's on again!

    MM6: Mandate of Awesome is naturally the thing I'm pumped hyped about the most (35 minutes?! You kidding me?!), but Super Monkey Ball is always impressive too. I think Hollow Knight is one that caught my attention during the Steam Sale, so I might make a point of checking that out. Aaand that seems to be all that jumps out at me, other than the weirdness of an Android Cactus.

    Omnibus run was entertaining, this I Am Bread thing is just goofy

    Five seconds into the Might & Magic run and we are already treading the paths of the truly deranged o_O :lol:

    Gotta have those goofy style "I am bread" runs. It's like when Alex Navarro did a speedrun of Big Rigs.

    It's all about variety

    Absolutely! That game seems tough, too, so seeing someone nail it is cool.

    That under 8 hour final fantasy 7 run was impressive, I didn't know about that invisible cloud cutscenes thing.

    It's on again. The Donkey Kong run was fun if sometimes repetitive.

    Part of the fun for me is lurking in IRC chat and watching people nerd it up about games and hardware and, right now . . . resolution/scaling algorithms? I think? :lol:

    I liked what I saw of the crash bandicoot run. I really need to go back and find the Lovely Planet/Lovely Arcade VODs. I found a VOD for the 100% world record and I've been watching that. That game requires an insane level of skill to run.

    Yeah, the Lovely Planet runs are on my shortlist of ones to go back and watch.

    Two different speedrun marathons coming up where someone aims to finish the original Descent in fifty minutes or less.

    That's a lot of levels full of robots. I always have a hard time grasping these time estimates for games I've played, because I keep forgetting not everyone feels compelled to kill all the things. :naht:


    As for SGDQ 2018, I see TASBot on the schedule [​IMG] and a 3v3 blind race in Mario Maker? Surely they get to practice the levels ahead of time for that one . . . :unsure:

    Having watched Sagan, Poobear, and Failstream play Mario Maker on twitch I have no doubt they'll be fine without previewing the levels.

    Blind and blindfolded are different. Blind just means going in without prior knowledge of the levels.

    TIL the first level of the Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle for GB is basically just a reskinned version of something called Pizza Pop!.
