  • Hey you with the pretty face

  • Welcome to the human race!
Here it comes!


Hypest for:


* F-Zero GX
* Mega Man X4, even if it's X's route and therefore devoid of The Cutscene
* Metal Gear Solid
* Metroid Prime 3 holy moley honestly never thought this game would appear in a GDQ
* Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
* Kamiko
* Densha de D Lightning Stage
* Mega Man 1/2/3 Relay
* Ocarina of Time 100%
* Super Mario Land 2
* Link to the Past Randomizer Glitchless
* Breath of the Wild All Main Quests No Amiibo


Notable in their absences are Super Metroid and TASBot, but I guess everyone needs a break now and again.

Oh hey, an I Wanna game that isn't Boshy.  This year's Awful Games Done Quick block looks particularly choice, too.

Did we really need Super Mario Sunshine again though?  It's like the least fun Mario game to watch.

Ultima VI, Baldur's Gate II, Diablo, Rayman, Duke 3D. Such tasty morsels. I would have preferred Blood 1 instead of 2, and any Serious Sam game instead of BFE, but oh well.

Those two facts sum me up pretty well.

Whooooaaaaaaa that's awesome!  I've been watching a bunch of these and even played a few myself, they're actually really interesting and fun - this'll be fantastic to watch!

Andy's swordless run at SGDQ 2017 was one of my favorite GDQ runs of all time.  His randomizer streams are hilarious, so this run should be an absolute gem (especially if his commentators are back).

Umihara Kawase, Panic Restaurant, and Legend of the Mystical Ninja might fly under the radar for many but they're good platformers.

Oh hey, an I Wanna game that isn't Boshy.  This year's Awful Games Done Quick block looks particularly choice, too.
There are a ton of titles I still don't recognize so I can't pick out the awful block right away. Am I the dumb??????

  • Serious Sam 3: BFE - FINALLY!
  • Prince of Persia: Warrior Within - 25 min ETA? I think I know where they'll break the game and it'll be curious to see.
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - Geez, this one is present in every GDQ. What's the point of doing the same thing every ti-- WAIT WHAT ZERO BOSSES?!
  • Ultima VI: The False Prophet - Never played this one but about time Ultima games showed up again!
  • Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep - Hopefully it's not Aqua again.

Umihara Kawase speedruns are a thing of majesty, yeah.

You know you're in awful block when Bubsy II is in the lineup.

I'll say this: Don't look up what game it is, but be sure to watch Princess Rescue. <_<

Man, sure wish there were some new arcade beat-em-up runs. I mean, Battletoads are cool but it's pretty much a rerun of something that's already been there before.

I think that's largely a problem with the genre.  Very few arcade beat 'em ups have interesting speedrun qualities.

I've mentioned here and there that I have no idea why they elected to not put in SM and threaten all the donations they get for Save/Kill. I guess they want to just test it out without it? They can't actually replace it with something else because it was inherently a spontaneous meme. Trying to force a replacement won't work. The game obviously needs a break but it seems like an odd decision money-wise.

I have heard from credible sources that not only did it need a break, because it was the default donation incentive option, it was basically siphoning money away from other incentives and they wanted to break that trend this year.

I can believe that rationale. If people were actively withholding their donations towards other incentives just so they could push for their side to win, that does in fact negatively impact the marathon as a whole.

RNG Manipulated this time. And the run was done at RPGLB. This time I won't be there to commentated.

Also the Animals donations were siphoning donations because it was always the most known one and the default choice because people didn't know about the other donation choices

SM, for all its merits and quality runners, probably needs a rest for now. It's probably for the best to get some other incentives and in-jokes beyond save/kill.
I think that's largely a problem with the genre.  Very few arcade beat 'em ups have interesting speedrun qualities.
I spent a moment thinking of potential fun/interesting beat 'em ups for this and the only thing that felt like it deserved a spot would be a co-op run of either Double Dragon Neon or maaaaybe TMNT4? Unless someone has evidence of some run utterly gutting the game mechanics it's hard to imagine a beat 'em up making it in without being relegated to a late night spot. It's just the nature of the beast.

Damn, too busy at work, missed most of Sam 3 run. It was fun by the looks of it so waiting for VODs now.

Hopefully Harmony of Dissonance incentive will be met. Juste runs feel more impressive since I know how broken Maxim's movement is.

Also, Prince of Persia got dropped? Shame.
