    Brutal that tasbot dragged the WR holder onto the couch just to show him just how weak he truly was.

    GrandPOObear is trying to get the Power Glove to work out for a Super Mario Bros 3 run. As bad as it's been, he's slowly starting to understand it's fucking nonsense. And of course there's some hilarious "banned from Twitch" techniques being employed:

    Want to watch a 3d platformer run but don't know which game to watch?
    The 2nd annual 1545 race started earlier today. It's a 13-game 100% relay race. Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie, Super Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy and Galaxy 2, Spyro 1 2 and 3, Crash Bandicoot 1 2 and 3, and Donkey Kong 64, all in one race, all 100+%. It's nuts.

    I keep finding speedrun marathons. This one is run by, I think, The RPG Chick (whom I've never heard of) and is called the RPG Chick-a-thon:

    That is a marathon a benefit a person of the RPG speedrun community(which is RPGC) who's gone through some medical stuff recently

    Goddamn, usedpizza got three things accepted. He got oddly snubbed from SGDQ. One of the races that got in he was part of the group that submitted it, and everyone but him was accepted. Maybe they're making it up to him?

    I dunno how I feel about the combo randomizer getting in. That seems like a bit much for people to follow and really understand what's happening.

    IIRC the SM/LttP randomizer runs usually hang around in each game for a while, so it's less confusing than you'd think. Good commentary helps a lot, anyway.

    It looks like I'm closing out the "weird block" too with games that aren't necessarily bad (in fact Pulirula is a very good game just super weird) just weird.

    AGDQ 2019 Games List is live:

    EDIT: Gonna add my reactions as I scroll through, starting with 3 runners for FF9! Guessing it'll be relay style with each running a third of the game. As someone who loves FF9 and watches speed runs of it a bunch I say heck yeah.

    Darker Side for Odyssey, into it.

    Super Mario RPG!

    Super Metroid is back as reverse boss order

    Only 1 TASbot game?

    Twitch Plays Scribblenauts??

    I'm so glad Revolcion is getting his Carol run for Freedom Planet in! Last I checked, he's the only person who seriously runs that character, and him getting in means all three will have made an appearance at a GDQ.

    Only one Kirby game, but decent amount of Castlevania love, DS3 & Bloodborne, Cuphead and Hollow Knight, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2X, Tropical Freeze is back.

    Nice list.

    Nier: Automata ending E has to be the final game of the marathon. Ending E would be fucking PERFECT for a GDQ event to end with.

    If you haven't played the game, don't just look it up. Play it, finish it now before AGDQ.

    I wonder if they are going to try and get through without help? That would be insane.

    In my head I'm imagining (game spoilers, do not click if you haven't played it):
    the runner triggering the questions and asking them to the crowd behind them. Just constantly pumping them up 'til the choir kicks in. <3

    Super Metroid RBO is an insane run

    the runner took the world record for it earlier this year, and just to give you an idea of how rare it is to even complete a single run, and of how much room there is to improve because of that, he improved on Zoast's record by four minutes

    and that record itself improved over the previous by five minutes

    zoast even saved the animals in that run just to be a chucklehead

    The schedule has been announced. Hollow Knight is the opening run, Super Metroid RBO as the last run (with SMO Darker Side right before it).

    Friday in general seems like it's gonna be great. Diablo 2 Amazon%, Pokemon Gold glitchless race, FFIV Free Enterprise Race, TAS Block, Sunshine Lockout Bingo, and then FF9 overnight.

    They're playing Doki Doki Panic which is really interesting.

    For those that don't know, the Super Mario Bros. 2 that was released in America is basically a remake of a different NES game with Mario characters. I'm very interested to see if there's a particular reason for playing this over SMB2 since the latter is generally considering the more polished of the two.

    yeah it's a weird choice, I wonder if less polish means more easily exploitable

    Yeah speedrunners don't care about polish - Japanese versions tend to have more bugs to exploit, like Shorty said, because they'd often fix bugs that were missed in the initial release while working on the localization. Or sometimes they just have differences in framerate, text speed, or other system settings that make things generally faster (I remember watching one run where they played the non-English version because it was text-heavy and there were less characters in that version, so they saved a couple minutes overall).

    You can't run in Doki Doki panic.

    EDIT: Also you can't ever switch characters and still make progress toward the quickest ending. Each character has their own progress in the game. In order to get the 'best ending' you have to beat it with each character.

    PS the Yetee is selling shirts for this and the event shirt itself is a super awesome GDQ logo, just GDQ not GDQ X or anything, I bought it. $12 + $2 for extended sizes, proceeds to the marathon
