    Games Done Quick/Speedruns

    We had a speed running thread on the old site but not here right?

    Anyways, Awesome Games Done Quick just started 40 minutes ago, they're currently doing Splatoon.

    Anyone interested/watching?

    Watching as much as I can over the next week. Closing out on a non-glitched FF IV will be cool to see. Shame they haven't got an all-bosses incentive for Bloodborne.

    Will be fun to see the L4D2 if I remember to watch it.

    It will be interesting to see how much worse that team is than Ian, Cord, Benny and me, the best that TTH can throw up.

    Make sure you watch the blindfolded Punch Out, still the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen on one of these.

    The Twitch channel should have all of the VODs available pretty much instantly, they normally upload all the runs to YT a bit later too.

    I'll be dropping in a donation during the blindfolded punch out.

    I'll make sure it gets called out and that TTH is in the mention.

    Indeed.

    I have no idea why I liked Kirby so much as a kid.

    The hours that I sunk into the games :\

    Edit: Just seen we have another hour or so of Kirby

    Diddy Kong Racing, Super Mario Kart and Super Mario 64.

    A strong trio for when Kirby finally fucks off.

    Toufool is ridiculous.

    Best thing so far, MrsGizamaluke pulled it out of the bag after Toufool let him in by missing some glitch thing.

    Fucking brilliant shit.

    They're making me look so inept.

    The speed at which they catch the rabbit in the basement, they might as well be punching younger me in the face at that point

    Super Star Wars race on now, looks like Stryker got a little tubby.

    All runs are being uploaded here if you miss anything, bit easier to find things than on Twitch VODs.

    I've been checking their Youtube every 30 minutes today, I slept through L4D2

    Oh and the highlights so far are Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart and the Super Mario 120 race as well as the multiplayer.

    If you can stand it the Twitch VOD should only be about half an hour behind live. I saw the end of one of the L4D runs at lunch which would have been about 12.30

    I hate pre-patch any% so at least I can chuckle at his early fuck-ups.

    Pretty cool that.

    I wonder if Zallard will mention it in the SGDQ.

    For something like this, how many hours must they have put in practicing? Like, that's an hour and a half done perfectly? That must have been practiced a half-dozen times at least, albeit in smaller chunks.

    More than that, for a game like this they will have probably learnt not only all the layouts but enemy behaviour and placement too, for some games there's also a lot of manipulation going on (which isn't always apparent) so enemies spawn in beneficial places. I would think it's hundreds if not thousands of hours of practice, made slightly more convenient these days as most games have been mapped already so it's a process of memorising it rather than learning it from scratch.

    A reminder Summer Games Done Quick starts today at about 6pm-ish. There will be a Tetris Grandmaster segment.

    Whilst I'm here, I did wonder how a New Game Speed Run of MGSV would work, given that most of that game casually is waiting for timers and developing tech. Turns out they give the run a caveat: Run to the first credits. It's a decent watch.

    Watching people play Tetris at a high level is mental. It's hard to actually believe.

    The requirements for becoming an official Grand Master (or whatever it is) are fucking insane, I refuse to believe anyone who manages it isn't a robot.

    Speaking of robots is Zallard doing Punch Out this year?

    No Punch-Out run this year. Surprised there wasn't a Dark Souls III run, although I've seen a lot of them in the last few months. This evening's got a good few runs I fancy watching.

    Twice recently I've fallen asleep with Youtube on autoplay and woke up to a Doom speed run belting away, with the video title claiming it was a world record time. I watched about five minutes of it and it looked about as well rehearsed as anything you can think of. If the nutcase who did that is involved with this I might watch some of it.

    So they broke the million again. Caught up with most of the runs I wanted to watch. I'd reccomend:

    The Tetris Grand Master Exhibition
    TASBot block. Started boring with a couple of videos and then went kinda nuts.
    Bioshock
    Two Worlds
    The Super Metroid race
    Blindfolded Symphony of the Night
    Dishonored

    Avoid the two Bawkbasoup runs (Resident Evil 2, Silent Hill 3). He might've been up for 40 hours but he and his couch, and the donation comments are practically all memes.

    Still got to catch FF VI and Little Big Planet.
