    It's the same deal as always; a bunch of folks rotating in to speedrun games for nearly a solid week to garner donations for charity. (click the banner for more info)

    What's a speedrun? Generally, it's the act of clearing a particular objective in a game as quickly as possible. In most cases it's simply seeing the end credits from the start of a fresh playthrough, but there's a plethora of sub-categories as well that runners can abide by. It involves a sheer number of hours of practice of mastering and memorizing a game inside-out to optimize your run as much as possible without human error.
    Spoiler: show
    Examples of the common speedrun categories are
    • any% - simply just clearing the game, which is what you'll primarily see at AGDQ2015
    • low% - clearing with the lowest completion rating if a game tracks it; typically involves using glitches or clever tricks to skip otherwise mandatory pickups that would bring up the completion score
    • 100% runs - doing all the optional content/collectibles
    • glitchfests - abusing bugs to break apart or skip large portions of a game, and other devious goods; very common in TAS runs where you remove human error from the equation to do extremely precise or humanly impossible glitches
    • Game settings such as single-player/co-op, difficulty levels, etc, get broken down into their own categories as well.

    The last AGDQ was kinda something with the 4-way Super Metroid Race, the Blindfolded Punchouts, and the Beautifulohbabyyeah Goldeneye 007 runs.

    Shinobi 3 on there but no PS2 Shinobi.
    I wish someone good at it would run it one day.

    Played well, that game would be exciting to watch, I bet.

    Guess I just gotta settle for these youtube videos ; ;

    Decent spread with some powerhouse runners. I just can't get enough of Goose, FuriousPaul, Caleb, and Cubeface21.

    AGDQ is the shit. Looking at the schedule:
    • Transistor - love this game, really interested to see how the speed run goes
    • Super Monkey Ball - Maybe no harder than other games, but always looks impressive as hell
    • Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II - just a great game, never seen a speed run before
    • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link - love that there are several fundamentally different ways to speedrun this game, hope we see something new
    • Goldeneye - 4 way races are always the highlight of AGDQ, this will probably be the best event they have
    • Super Metroid - These races are always epic, a shame it's not 4-way

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Zelda II speed runs never fail to impress me from that impossible game.

    Main thing I'm looking forward to. Lots of 4-way races this year, and the Awful Games block looking decent.

    There's a Humble bundle up also in AGDQ's name - https://www.humblebundle.com/
    A buck for a modern Duke/Shadow Warrior sourceport isn't too shabby.

    I also really need to get a second monitor one of these days.

    Looking forward to SMS 100%. Such a great game, nice to see the 100% category get some screen time.

    Hope they're able to fix their lag/sound issues and the schedule issues so things can go smoothly.

    Liking the new layout as well.
