>any way to only show the green/passed games? I want to know how shit this year's agdq is gonna be.
it seems like if you click on the category headers like category 1 it will sort by color
>all his runs got rejected
I think they're actively trying to make 2016's AGDQ even worse than this year's.
Why the fuck even bother?
>tfw one of your friends is going to be running but you actually hate speedrunning
I'm actually amazed that Undertale is not being ran. Granted, it's not very good speedgame, but with how they've had other indie games before and the following surrounding the game, I'd figured it'd be obvious choice to get more viewers.
>talking shit about Essentia
>speedrunning turn-based games
the fucking worst
>Splatoon race rejected
>no Tetris guys
>Aria of Sorrow rejected
>fucking FFIV accepted
>3 hour Paper Mario run
>3 hour FF4 run
>3.5 hour Kingdom Hearts run
>2.5 hour FE run
>Super Mario Maker speedrun
Alright, maybe it's not all bad.
that game is a really crappy speedrun and is only in on the basis of being flavour of the month garbage
The fact that got in over actual runs is really fucking sad.
>Beta male gets depressed etc (girlfriend broke up with him)
>Decides to become a girl
>"No Anon, they were just born a woman in a man's body."
I went through this phase at one point too. I know they're full of shit first hand.
Waste of time, just like Gone Home.
>ONE-HANDED TRANSFORMERS DEVASTATION RUN NOT REJECTED
SAVE THIS MARATHON
>in the future it'll become Super Mario Maker Runs Done Quick and all submissions will just be maps
I don't know how it is still a thing but there is a thriving community. Right now they are focused on giantwaffle and his girlfriend. His girlfriend made a reddit account and posts a bunch of backpedalling and drama on there
>Chex Quest rejected
>Four Swords Adventures rejected
>Fantabulous Game rejected
>Marble Madness rejected
>no Zero run of MMX4
>Battleblock Theater accepted
>Mirror's Edge accepted
>glitchless Pokemon run accepted
>Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse accepted
>Iji (pacifist) accepted
Anthony Burch had a job and actually made something.
Cosmo has made nothing and got NTR'd out of his WR, his only accomplishment in life.
And now he's a disgusting reptilian tranny. Suicide is inevitable.
He will look like pic related
Enjoy your "trap" you sick faggot
>guys please don't spoil my heavily story-focused gameplay on one of the most watched events on twitch mere months after its release
>cool senpai we gotchu
i don't see the problem
it's not like he asked people not to speedrun it at all
>I think they're actively trying to make 2016's AGDQ even worse than this year's.
You might just be on to something.
How the fuck do you reject Caveman 4 times. That mustached freak made fucking Floating Runner fun to watch.
>people care about the story in undertale
No, he was just being a giant contrarian faggot like he is about everything and didn't want his game at a GDQ
>tons of unseen games that would be interesting all rejected
>the same shitty games that get run every damn year like Mario and donkey Kong get picked again
>multiple runs of the same aforementioned overrun games
>all that megaman cancer
>fucking twitch plays scribblenauts segment
>2 hour long PoR speedrun
It'd be nice if GDQ wasn't complete cancer.
To be fair, an Undertale speedrun would be the absolute worst way to first expose someone to the game. I would argue it would ruin the experience for a lot of people.
Though I guess he could've asked a bit nicer.
how would the story get spoiled when you would mash through text as fast as possible? would the story somehow get spoiled in some other fashion? the commentators during the run don't have to talk about the story if it bothers him that much. I don't get it
>would the story somehow get spoiled in some other fashion?
from the visuals, the circumstances, the stuff that happens in the video game?
story in a game is not conveyed entirely through text and it would definitely spoil basically all the good moments the game has to offer depending on the kind of run they did
Y'know? I'd go crazy and get a sex change if I forgot how to play mario in front of millions of people.
Yeah, but that's not the point. For a lot of people watching AGDQ, it will be their first time seeing an Undertale playthrough. It would show very little good about the game (which is mostly dialogue and out-of-the-way easter eggs) while simultaneously spoiling a lot of shit. Not to mention UT is kind of a shit speedgame, judging by the fact that you'd just be running through corridors, skipping text, and sitting through enemy attacks.
Still, I don't think it's right to outright say you can't play it. But it would be a stupid choice, and I can understand why the guy who made it would prefer not to have it played live on AGDQ.
>Not to mention UT is kind of a shit speedgame
This is like the secondary consideration which is that I doubt Undertale would even make it through game cuts even if it were submitted because Undertale is a really fucking boring speedgame for the most part.
True, but maybe spoiling it for a shitload of people who may likely still discover Undertale not long after its release isn't the most considerate move?
this isn't tough logic I have no idea what part of that you're having trouble with
>Battleblock Theater accepted
time for HAHAHAHAHAHA: The Reckoning?
>ignored all the threads about narcissawright because who the fuck is that
>turns out it was cosmo all along
what the fuck happened
It's just gonna be 90% the same games they run every fucking marathon, cancer sob stories and autism.
>There is nothing wrong with wanting attention
Sure, if you're mentally unstable.
That said, GDQ's have went downhill since AGDQ2013.
Won't be long until they're not even worth watching.
GDQs have gone to the shitter. SGDQ 2014 and AGDQ 2015 were especially awful
It's a shitposting general consisting of twitch chat underages.
Why do you think?
>you can actually see his dong
>literally no underwear
>top left corner has some sorta news channel logo
where the fuck is this from
You guys do realize this is a person that was previously named Cosmo, right?
If I lived with that name all my life, it's not hard to imagine that any other I go by would be anything but normative.
Like I said /srg/ is just a shitposting central wanking about streamers and twitch memes instead of actually discussing speedrunning.
Speedrunning became mainstream around late 2013 early 2014, so there's that. It's been nothing but garbage since then. Many high name speedrunners are washed up or have quit already.
Its from a news story
>"trans" kid wants to use the womens bathroom
>school finally relents
>300 students have a protest
>makes the news
>kid decides to go commando in a skirt on national news and gets a semi
>"yes this is the way to make me look sane and not a deranged crossdressing pervert"
It definitely is fun to watch and cutscenes aren't quite as bad as you would think. I would find it S+++ tier if people did nightmare speed runs but eh.
But gotta make room for obscure japanese nes games that literally only sold 100 units at 3 am in the morning!
Most people see the money in it and want to get paid for it, and some completely drop speedrunning and just play games of the month, like mario maker. I just want to run the games I really enjoy.
I was thinking more the cutscenes suck for resets, but that's still good to hear. Do you know if there are any running guides out there for Origin or Oath? I have been very interested in learning either of those for my first speedgame.
I used to watch a lot of MMX streams and even got into running X1 and X2 about a year ago. It was all good fun.
Lately I really don't give a fuck about speedrunning anymore. The fad seems to be dying
Unfortuantly there isn't a lot it's literally right now watch the various youtubes and contact the people doing them. I admittedly would not know too much on the actual doing part of speed running it, I'm a fan that's held back by a disorder that makes my reflexes and input speed absolutely awful, so you could imagine how well speed running something like Ys would be.
there's 2 submissions for origins this year that both got rejected for literally no reason. Also let's be honest watching bumper cars is not entertaining to most, celceta is way too long, and literally no one would care about 7.
>cosmo loses his ocarina of time world record
>cosmo turns his channel to a smash 4 channel because he's good at nothing else
>cosmo realizes there are a billion people better at smash then him
>cosmo loses the nintendo world championships
>finally cosmo opts to lose his masculinity sa the final coffin in his grave
>narcissa starts his brand new career as a trap cock slave
Thank goodness the 20 hour megaman block is still there! Hope someone does a quick 8 hour 100% of pokemon too!
They do realize people don't actually want to watch this shit right? All the cool games that last like 20 minutes get run once and they never accept them again.
Because it's by far the easiest of the 3D games to run. Oath and 6 both require constant streams of inputs, 7 and Celceta are just really long and on platforms people don't run on for the most part, 1 and 2 are optimized as fuck and people are afraid of running it at a high level, and the older patch for Origin with super jumping is too hard or completely unknown to mostly everyone else.
It gets rejected every time and it's because it's boring to watch since half the game is cutscenes.
Is the guy who did Prince of Persia: Sands of Overtime gonna be doing a run? I don't remember his name but that was probably my favorite run of the last AGDQ
Where's the schedule for the winter GDQ?
Metroid Hunters Crew.
Ironically none of them play Metroid games.
It's Werster (Pokemon and sometimes Sonic), Trihex(Yoshi's Island Stepmania%), ShadowJacky(Acrobat and Sonic), and DarkspineSonic(ALWAYS Sonic), unless they added someone new.
>3 hours of kingdom hearts
>fire emblem AGAIN
Hype for sonic lost world since darkspinesonic is a bro
>come sweet death: 2 hours of resident evil
>hour and a half of L4D2
>HALO FUCKING 4
Any interestng games were rejected. FF4 got multiple runs. Mario, Zelda, Metroid and Megaman again. Oh man sure will be cool to see those same ones again but this time they found a way to save 5 seconds god damn
Sounds rough, too bad I don't know anyone who still streams their runs, so I can ask them their opinion of running Origin, III and VI. I still really want to run these games, just don't know how difficult/fun the run is at a higher level.
memes are money
that shit will always go through
to be fair, its cool to see halo 4 get in because its a halo that hasnt been in a GDQ before, plus it has a lot of cool out of bounds glitches and skips
ODST would've been cool as well, nagato is pretty based tbqh
Origin is either really boring or really difficult depending on what you're doing, I don't know anything about 3, and 6 is pretty fun once you get used to dash jumping
it really isn't that hard if you're using mouse and keyboard controls.
It's called autogynephilia.
In the old days this problem worked itself out by perverts putting on their wife/gf/sister/mommy's panties and rubbing one out to themselves in the mirror, then going back to their mundane lives. Now in the year of our John Oliver 2015, trannyhood is a meme so they've all been convinced they're lesbians trapped in men's bodies.
>What games are you looking forward to?
Super Mario Maker
>We have gathered a team of level makers with years of romhack experience to create custom levels for AGDQ, and many mario speedrunners as racers. We propose two teams of 2-4 players each (tech/logistics willing) race 5-10 levels blind.
Holy shit, so all those years ago when he used to paint his nails as a 'joke', it really WAS gay. This is pretty amazing, holy shit. He really fell hard
>speedrunners are literally having mental breakdowns and becoming trannies to cope
Jesus christ, cant wait to see the blunders this year.
That's the fucked up part about our current society. Sometimes, people have fucked up thoughts, usually in times of intense sadness or grief. They always have since man could think; it's just the nature of being sapient. You get sad, you start thinking "Man, things would be so much better if I were a woman (or an animal, or a tree, or what the fuck ever)."
At some point, we stopped deriding these people as being what they are (mentally unstable) and instead started supporting them. "Why no Jim, it's not at all crazy that you want to be a woman now. Anyone who thinks you're crazy is just a nasty bigot! Now go take your hormone pills and start saving up to get your dick chopped off, Jim. Oh, sorry, I meant Janet!"
It's just fucking madness, pure and simple.
>most of the runs I actually wanted to see are rejected
>GDQs became monetized "family friendly" toolbag fests for the money
>The posterboy became a fucking tranny who got c u c k e d by 3 different runners
>Any cool person is banned from GDQ
>Romscout became a HUGE toolbag since Bloodstained
The Speedrunning community is amazing, I enjoy runners because of how pathetic and cringeworthy they are now
Holy shit what?
I had no idea this had happened
I was watching him play Sm4sh on /cosmowright like a month ago, so this must have been super recently
Jesus fucking christ
I'm going to pretend this never happened
It's always weird to see your androgynous waifu posted.
>Only game that hasn't been ran already that I care about is a bonus
He IS our sins. Fuck Blueglass for always needing to upstage the runners by out knowledge them
Also how is SOMA supposed to be a speed run if it's and hour and a half. I thought the game was about that long anyway
The ones who crave e-celeb status definitely. Why do you think hotels are banning them from coming back? Most of the lot are desperate attention seekers who will damage property to get a quick laugh.
I can almost imagine notch fucking cosmo in the ass with his big fat cock
his FF9 run with puwexil was the shit
best run I've ever seen
what if you are completely comfortable with your penis and being a guy and all but you also want to be
I was told when I was immunized against HPV that it was a leading cause of mouth and throat cancer in men. It doesn't show symptoms in most women and they tend to carry it and give it to your face without ever getting tested.
Just so you guys know, GDQ is now run by three people: Mike Uyama (who's still sick and refuses to contact the community directly), Cool Matty (who believes he's always right when he couldn't decide his way out of a paper bag), and Sumichu (former eSports person who handles the corporate stuff).
Multiple staff members, including Romscout, have already resigned from their positions. Former volunteers shit talk GDQ's incompetence.
AGDQ is paying out $167,000 in salaries, roughly $9,000 per staff member.
GDQ is a for-profit, for-charity marathon. That's the reason that game submissions are so terrible every time, it's those three people selecting games behind closed doors without even giving some video submissions views.
The dramafags who obsess over Chibi, Caveman, etc. came in and never left. When the real drama dried up, some anons started fabricating fake drama about anyone they could, which leads us to the current time.
We hate them as much as you do.
