AGDQ

I know Icrontic enjoys Desert Bus for Hope streams and that it doubles as a super awesome charity event. I would like to introduce you all to Awesome Games Done Quick. The title is self explanatory it is a bunch of speed runners playing through a bunch of awesome games as quickly as possible. All donations go towards cancer research and the event lasts three days proper and generally will unofficially go for an extra two days.

    Looks neat, I'll check it out more later tonight.
  • I just watched them play Super Meat Boy for 20 minutes. Holy. Fuck.
  • The are doing MegaMan 7 right now. This is much more interesting to watch than Desert Bus for Nope.

    Just turn off the chat, the idiocy is strong with that crowd.

    Jimmy this makes me think you're watching the bus cam instead of the people driving it. You're bad at Desert Bus.
  • Nope. Even the people in this seem more interesting than Dessert Buss.

    Yeah the AGDQ doesn't moderate unlike the Desert Bus for Hope, which can be a pain if you're an active chat participant.

    Seems like that's what a lot of people liked about DBFH, was chat shens.

    AGDQ is a fun stream though, it got featured on Teamliquid.net so that'll help it's viewership too.

    Woot got home just in time for Metroid Prime speedrun. If you haven't seen a Prime speed run you really need to tune in now. It's probably one of the most interesting.

    100% Metroid Prime in 2 hours 10 minutes. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT

    Also if you thought you were pretty white and nerdy, just watch this stream and realize how small time you are.

    Well that Portal 2 run ended in travesty.

    Speed runner blew out their knee? Torn acl/pcl.

    They're about 40K short of surpassing Dessert Bus for Hope's money raised.

    So they went for a speed run of Zelda: Wind Waker earlier and I thought, "Aww that can't be very interesting." Then I learned about super swimming.



    holy fuck WHAT

    Cosmo's runs were pretty amazing.

    "this trick requires a timing for a single frame so hopefully he ge--"
    "ok I got it"

    I'm gonna have to watch the mario 64 run in the vods and also the 2 player 1 controller contra run.

    Good point, the timing involved in exploiting that glitch is absolutely insane. There is no way anyone should have ever found that.

    Here's the VODs for all interested. Organized by the game in order in which they were played.
  • KoreishKoreish I'm a penguin, deal with it. KCMO Icrontian
    Games of note are Super Meat Boy, Super Mario 64, OoT any %, Wind Waker, Banjo Kazooie, and the Contra Block
  • WinfreyWinfrey waddafuh Missouri Icrontian
    Yoshi's Island 100% run and any of the awful games block, which starts with Sonic 2006, are especially entertaining.

    Today is the start of Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) which is the smaller Summer version of AGDQ. The charity for this marathon is Doctors Without Borders. They are currently two games in so lots of time to watch and donate.

    As an update Twitch is volunteering $50 for every 1,000 viewers at peak viewing up to $5,000. So in essence if the stream breaks 100,000 viewers, which AGDQ did, $5,000 will be donated to Doctor's Without Borders. Just by watching you can help a great cause.
