Awesome Games Done Quick 2017
« on: January 11, 2017, 01:23:03 AM »
https://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick

for ur neckbeard health

it's a popular gaming speedrun (i.e., beating games as quickly as humanly possible) event that raises money for cancer

kind of fun to watch if you're familiar with the games and the commentary is decent. They do a mix of old/retro and modern games. Some of them have sequence breaks or exploits, some don't and come down to skill or RNG.


current game is FINAL FANTASY 1 (NES)

which kicked my ass for hundreds of hours when I was a kid and their target finish time is a mere ~4 hours

I think agrul and Jxands are probably right

i just wait for the games to get over and watch some of the speed runs

the live is just kind of because most of the speed runners look so shell shocked from playing a single game over and over

also i spent my cancer research money on a new recliner so that i can be in full bridge commander mode while navigating them there internets

if you took all the shitposts on TZT where someone was just talking to themselves and dumped about 50 of them per second + auto-refreshed, you'd have Twitch chat on a high viewer stream

it's 99% lazy emote spam + people repeating whatever was last said or shown (Batman Forever speedrun = "HOLD ON" x 932492390, "haHAA" whenever some nerd is awkward, etc)

no one actually talks to eachother or acknowledges what anyone else said

so it's just this group participation thing that's actually rly antisocial and weird from a psychological standpoint

I think agrul and Jxands are probably right

this run was great



chat was actually funny and had a field day with the monkey riding a shark while spanking it. Live audience started doing the wave during the waterfall sections.

game ending = the RADICAL MONKEY rescues "Barbi" (a blonde in a bikini) and they retire to the rooftop of their penthouse

that game would never be made today

it looks hilarious, but probably plays like shit because it's LJN

I put CIB-quest on hold because it's just too expensive for me right now. Went this route instead http://www.customgamecases.com/online-store/!/NES/c/13259210/offset%3D0%26sort%3DnameAsc

The clam shells are interesting, some look pretty good. The problem is I'd want them all uniform so I'd potentially want all of them. I'm definitely feeling the expense of my NES collection and thinking maybe I should stop or slow down buying these.

Going to a retro swap meet next weekend and I think I might just fill out some wii and ps1/ps2 gems I'm missing which will be dirt cheap rather than dropping 40 on average per cib NES.

went 4-0(7-0 in games, first round opponent scooped after game 1) in modern last night playing Taking Turns

basically my list but i dont have ancestral visions($50 each). love this deck and since they printed part the waterveil, it's soooo much better.

Agdq set a new record and hit 2.2 million this year. If there's one thing neckbeards have its disposable income for vidya

Irony punctuation is any proposed form of notation used to denote irony or sarcasm in text. Written English lacks a standard way to mark irony, and several forms of punctuation have been proposed. Among the oldest and most frequently attested are the percontation point proposed by English printer Henry Denham in the 1580s, and the irony mark, used by Marcellin Jobard and French poet Alcanter de Brahm during the 19th century. Both marks take the form of a reversed question mark, "⸮".

some are def fucking weird sperglords or weeaboos, but there's some cool people that do it too



is one of them

+ was a surprisingly fun speedrun to watch. It gets interesting after the first 20 minutes when he starts breaking the game.



Super Metroid runs are always good. It's probably the most popular speedrun game.

haven't watched them but I know they did runs for the new Doom (in ~70 minutes) and Dark Souls 3

1:19:32 in the Metroid run, some troll in the audience yells something (WALUIGI?) extremely loud and one of the commentators gets so rustled that he tells him to step in front of a tram
