    If all the runs aren't up there, they will be shortly.

    Final total was $1,298,379.44

    I'll have a check of the Fallout ones later. Even on a speed run FO4 clocks in at over an hour, but FO3 gets done in under 20 minutes

    That's why I don't mind seeing repeat runs at these events. Over a year, these runs can get completely re-routed and smashed.

    Anything with PJ, Richter, or Pcull is also worth watching as is the Mario Maker contest.

    I haven't watched anything sadly. I was seething when I saw that Zallard wasn't going to be there with punch out.

    Yeah, the Fallout 3 one is jank-tastic.

    Anything Bethesda from Oblivion onwards will suffer from the same issue, namely that walls are entirely optional. The guy who runs Skyrim breaks most of it with a bucket.

    Just watched it. "I have an announcement to make..." apparently sent Twitch chat into meltdown for an hour. I hope Skyrim can eventually get to that length but there's very little required in Fallout 3. Skyrim's very full-fat.

    The Momodora run is a really good one, I'm now watching Braid which appears to be being run by a security guard.

    AGDQ's 2017 schedule. 8th -14th January. That's incentive for me to finish Doom.

    How do speed-runners even begin on huge games like Fallout? Like, I kind of get it for Mario, because there's only so many ways to get through a level. But huge open-world games sort of feel like you could shave off a near-infinite number of instants if you're trying to improve.

    When it comes to Fallout (specifically, Bethesda's engines), they look for out of bounds tricks. You can go anywhere from the outset in those games so you just need to find the right wall to clip through. Because they use the same tech, they try the same tricks that will usually work.

    All you need is a bucket, a wall and the right angle.

    Routing can take a little while and even in very old games is continually being improved upon (mainly safer strategies for doing things that save time to make them practical to use in speedruns) but something like Fallout would start with making a list of what ingame macguffins you need to complete it and sketching out the best routes to each of them. An advantage in Fallout in particular is that it shares an engine with older games with some established strategies, for example you'll find that walls in Bethesda games are more of a suggestion than an actual limitation.

    Also, to 'complete' Fallout 4 only requires doing around 7-10 separate quests. They're not actually that long, just for the main quest.

    Had a sneak preview of the Tasbot project for the upcoming AGDQ the other day, Zelda is going to be well and truly destroyed.

    I ended up watching Tasbot does Brain Age and Super Mario Bros 3 earlier because of that, cheers Disco.

    It looks like they'll be able to program stuff into Zelda (like they did when they put snake into SMW) so it should be worth watching. The guy in charge also rambled on for ages about the innards of a SNES which might be the most boring thing that I've ever found interesting.

    Man, this Dark Souls III run has the worst luck.

    Wrapped up. $2.2m and counting.

    They raised over $1m on the final day alone which is pretty fucking incredible.

    Moment of the week, toss up between seat sniffing guy and the bloke on the couch who told the crowd to kill themselves.

    All speedrunners could learn something from TGH who did Undertale. I recommend watching it if you've time to kill: https://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick...71?t=38h43m15s

    It's that time again. AGDQ 2018 starts Sunday.

    Here's the schedule. There's also a bunch of new guidelines for runners and commentators to prevent any DRAMA.

    Hey, this is happening again. Summer Games Done Quick, specifically. Took all of two minutes to get into a twitter spat due to a runner mentioning how CosmoWright got him into speedrunning. Naturally, because Cosmo is now called Narcissa, transgender runners are up in arms.

    Oh, Ninja Gaiden Black is tomorrow morning. Sign me up.
