Summer Games Done Quick 2018 - Good Post OP(era)
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:47:56 pm »
The games list is out, and looking through it, the major eye-catch is puwexil's FF6 100% Glitchless run in 6:55. There's no way that's not the closer. I must confess I don't particularly care about FF6, but I know a ton of people do, so I'm excited for you all. <3

Super Metroid is back but appears to not be a race this year! Interesting. No LoZ Randomizer, unfortunately.

Other things I'm looking forward to:

* Metroid Samus Returns
* The Metroid Zero Mission Race
* The inevitable MegaMan block
* Catherine (I've never played or seen it but my fiancee is a huge fan of the game)
* Disgaea 5
* N64 Gauntlet Legends
* Getting Over It
* The glorious return of PEPSIMAN
* Pokemon Red/Yellow 2G1C what the fuck
* Super Mario Maker Blind Relay Race
* Super Mario Odyssey
* TASBlock
* Ocarina of Time Bingo (I had to look this up and it sounds hilarious)
* Wind Waker HD

I guess I also now need to play Axiom Verge and Celeste in the next two months so the runs don't spoil anything for me.

UPDATE: Schedule!

My eyes are on Deus Ex (too bad it's not UraniumAnchor playing), Thief, Shadow Warrior (finally!) and Oracle of Seasons. Might look at Divinity, Doom 2016 and Enter the Gungeon too, mostly out of curiosity. Only one Pokemon run this time around... but it should be a good one.

First run of Mario Odyssey should be fun! There's probably a lot of routing involved because you gotta get however many moons in a kingdom and then have to get a certain number in order to go to the next.

Mega Man 7
Super Nintendo Chalmers
SKIIINNERRR!

Something something Dark Souls. Though I mostly rolled with an uchi-centric dex build, they could really do a lot of things to blitz through the game. Loose guess is that it involves a lot of little nuanced tech and movement until it crashes headlong into some weapon or spell that busts it open, like great/crystal magic weapon plus the aforementioned uchi. Or something completely different haha. Dark Souls made it real easy to choose a PvE build for running the game normally but it could mean a mess of things for speedruns.

No Densha de D or Shoot the Bullet? GDQ hates fun

Pretty interesting line-up this year, although I dunno if anything will match the sheer magic of Awful Block last AGDQ but it'll be nice to be surprised.

Deus Ex

Funny enough, I picked up an interest in this one recently and even watched the old runs. Great stuff, let's see how it goes this time.

Shadow Warrior (finally!)

SECONDED

What else...

BTDD co-op - This is gonna be good
Castlevania: CotM - About damn time for a different Igavania to be shown off!
Cuphead - TMR is god
Dark Souls - All Bosses run should be curious
PoP: WW - Still looking forward to it
Redneck Rampage - Another Build engine game? Oh well, I'll take it
Jedi Knight - This one's awesome. Never seen the expansion, will be curious
Super Smash TV - I'm a fan of Total Carnage, the "sequel" of this one, so it'll be fun to see a co-op run here

Super Metroid is back but appears to not be a race this year! Interesting.

By the looks of it, there'll be a Zero Mission race.

My interest in GDQ is always correlated 1-1 with how much Mario Maker there is. There is some Mario Maker so I have some interest!
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

From what I remember, the Celeste run is a race! That's why both TGH and yp are listed on there. I hope I can catch it live.

* Disgaea 5

I didn't know if anyone would be interested in watching this one. My brother had been trying for a while to get this into GDQ, and I am glad that I haven't watched his runs since I wouldn't want all the surprises to be spoiled. I have seen more or less a full LP so I know roughly what a normal game looks like along with the mechanics.

Maybe a bonus incentive to be featured during a setup block???

Schedule for the last day looks pretty solid again. Some old favorites for speedruns and some old favorites for games.

Yeah, I have to imagine Pepsiman will be a bonus incentive game, unless the runner had to withdraw for some unfortunate reason.

Schedule worked out really well for me! I have legitimate excuses to not spoil Skyward Sword or Celeste for myself, and after I request Friday off from work the only mid-day weekday game I may miss out on that I really care about is Disgaea 5 (sorry Chirei). I'm surprised that there isn't a multi-hour run Saturday afternoon (not to mention Dark Souls got a late Friday slot instead of a Saturday afternoon slot like it's been getting recently), but I guess having the show close with a 7-hour run will do that.

EDIT: Super Mario Odyssey also isn't on the schedule - I bet that'll be the bonus incentive for the Saturday night tech block.

Pepsiman is a donation incentive, apparently.  Worry not.

Didn't even know Disgaea 5 speedrunning was a thing.  Should be a fun watch.

I imagine we'll get to see every single one of these, and checking the times, I'm doubly sure the SMO run is planned for that Saturday night tech crew slot.

We've begun! Three great runs in a row to begin stuff, with Kirby up next, and I had never heard of Iconoclasts before this but have been sold on getting it and trying it for myself.

I'm too busy at work and couldn't really watch it, but it seems like F.E.A.R. run was surprisingly fun, with nice commentary and some new tricks. Gotta watch the VOD when I have the time.
