    it was just a joke. the script called for him to end the segment with a dab and he 'refused'.

    unfortunate end to the Divinity: Original Sin 2 run there. only in speedrunning can quick saving kill your run.

    oh and $1,000,000 HYPE!!!!

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    That million dollar pop would've happened during the Divinity run if it didn't come to an unfortunate end. It happens though, the guy shouldn't feel too bad. He's certainly not the first person to have to end a run in that manner.

    The good part is it was a neat run up until it’s unfortunate end.

    the 'Save/Kill the Animals' bid war just opened up and it's already at $3,290, Save leading with $2,445. expect those numbers to change up fast going forward.

    As much as I enjoy the Save/Kill banter, with Yetee and other big names weighing in, it basically doesn't matter how things play out early on, there's precedent that some big name will put their thumb on the scale to keep it close until the very end.

    Not to be too jaded here or anything, I know it's just a fun bit during a charity marathon, but it's hard to worry about the totals when one could jump 8k right now, and a 10k donation would probably land shortly thereafter to keep things interesting (but at the same time removing any real agency present until the very end when the final tally has to be declared).

    I think Yetee has said it won't use it's donations for save/kill anymore after people complained about it. I say it's not about that at all it's about charity, but I respect their decision.

    yeah i really just consider the 'Save/Kill' incentive to be a bit of fun, but Super Metroid is closing out this years marathon so the cut off point should come when hype is at its highest. will hopefully give an extra boost in that home stretch.

    getting set up for the Final Fantasy IV Free Enterprise race. am really curious about this one.

    I'm honestly hoping that they have another finale game setup as a bonus incentive.

    i'd be very surprised if they had anything like that planned. there just doesn't seem to be room in the schedule for it.

    thought the tech issues at the start of the FFIV run was gonna require a restart. was only a few minutes but still not something you want to see happen. thankfully they were able to get things running smoothly so everyone could jump straight back in.

    and the final Setup Block incentive is live. $250K to unlock an Any% run of Bloodborne.

    Any% could be interesting, because of major glitches or skips. But could it truly compare to Hey Zeus Here’s Toast’s all-bosses run? That run had the best ladders in the business.

    well its HeyZues running it so we'll just have to hope the incentive is met so we can see how they incorporate ladders into the run.

    I don't know FF4 very well so this whole race is lost on me in concept. I don't understand how you progression lock with specific items in a jRPG when you can access everywhere. Zelda randomizers I get; you need a hammer to hammer shit. What is progressed lock by Cecil becoming a Paladin in that same way?

    Not everything is immediately accessible. There are progression locks but that's not one of them.

    One of the big ones is access to the underworld: You either need to find the magma key to open up a hole you can fly the airship through, or you need the hook to access the cave that lets you walk into the underworld.

    I know FF4 like the back of my hand but it still confused me sometimes.

    It seems like there are some special rules in place.

    This. You also need the Crystal (no element) to actually beat Zeromus at the end. Without it, you're stuck at his first form, which doesn't attack, and can't be hurt by anything.

    Most of the game's other key items aren't required for progression, such as the Earth Crystal, TwinHarp, the Tails, or the SandRuby are not necessary to progress, they're just extra items to try to get new characters in your party or other key items. Like, you might get the TwinHarp to beat DarkElf, and normally you get the Earth Crystal from him, but depending on how your game was randomly seeded, you could end up getting the MagmaKey from DarkElf instead.

    It's variable, but there's only like, 15 key items in the game, and you only need to find either the Pass (an optional item to open a shortcut to Zeromus in Toroia) or the Dark Crystal to get the Big Whale, and the *Crystal to change Zeromus to his killable form.

    not sure if TAS Bot donates to kill the animals cause its faster or because it holds a grudge against all organic life...

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    I'm not feeling this TASbot thing so far. Whenever they do custom ROM hacks I'm just like... lost. Like okay it zips fast but how is that special?

    SGDQ's Celeste TASBot was much better, yeah.

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    I mean whenever a game is something we know through frequent and/or recent GDQ appearances that's when TASbot works. But introducing a game with TASbot is a bit of a miscalculation.
