Your mission is to print out a bunch of point items and leave them all over the place. There should be one on the couch at all times.

may i ask what this is? i'm assuming it's some sort of charity revolving around an event about classic videogames, but i wanted tew be certain.

i myself am mentally ill, so the title piqued my interest.

If I'm not mistaken it is similar to Awesome/Summer Games Done Quick but specifically benefitting an organization targeting those with mental illnesses, so your summary should be about accurate?

It's a speed running marathon similar to Awesome Games Done Quick, but focusing on RPGs. They raise money for charities, this year being one for NAMI, and there are incentives for donating for certain games, whether it be prizes or special routes or actions during the speedruns. It's pretty fun. Here are some past marathons they have done.

I'll throw Terranigma and either StarTropics regardless of final choice as a recommendation. Also I have vague memories of Sweet Home being legitimately spooky.

This is pretty neat, I'll make sure not to miss this.  You don't see many RPGs in the GDQs, and almost never strategy RPGs.  I'm especially curious how the Shining Force race will turn out!

I saw some of FF13-2 and the Grimrock 100% run. Interesting stuff, it just goes to show there's more to RPGs than just optimizing your build and supplies...You need to optimize your movement and menuing as well.

UPDATE: GOLDEN SUN TLA HYYYYYYYYPE

Terranigma run made me donate.  Such a ridiculously good game.

Golden Sun is punching me in the childhood repeatedly and it hurts.

What I expected from Golden Sun: Zipping shenanigans ala Sonic
What I got: RNG manipulation and wrong warps ala FF4
What I DIDN'T expect: Getting Iris without fighting Dullahan

Run of the week for me so far.

Xenoblade went pretty much as expected - a couple early exploits to hit high levels and sweep past the game until around level 50, then a couple different ones to get to endgame, and a whoooooole lot of running.  Game is so goddamn huge.

Fire Emblem is the best and will probably be Seth% and that is cool.

We raised over $110,000 this year! Thanks again to everybody who watched, chatted, donated, and spread the word.

Anyone else digging through the youtube archives now that all the runs are up?

The Shining Force race is pretty interesting to me for how there isn't a lot you can do to break the game (although the rings are pretty crucial) and you can't really manipulate the RNG for hits and such.  They have to play well by knowing how all the AI triggers work and by funneling EXP to their most useful characters.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Ogre Battle (SNES) run seems almost shocking for how low leveled you can get away with and how quickly you can short circuit maps by not fighting everything (with tarot cards being the key to both).
