It gave me anxiety. Jezus. I will see purple bullets in my nightmares.

It's like an unholy version of The Tetris Effect :laughing:

 

I love how the donations literally just completely died during that run! Everyone was completely transfixed! 

 

That's gotta be the highlight of this year's AGDQ.  I don't see anything topping that.  Absolutely insane all the way through!

Nooooo, I missed that run :( Hope it's on YouTube soon. Speaking of, they are a lot slower with uploads this year. Could be because they want people to tune in to the stream. Guess we'll have to wait until after the event is over to have all runs available on the YouTubez.

This LTTP Randomiser Crowd Control run is absolutely nuts! I can't believe that it all works!

SGDQ2020 schedule is now up. I don’t know how much I’ll watch this year given it’s online only but we’ll see.

Thanks @Happenstance

It definitely works better with the crowd, but the remote mini one they held near the beginning of the pandemic worked better than I thought it would.  It really does rely on good commentators though.

Ocarina of Time Coop randomizer looks fun. And what's the BotW dog thing about?

Having literally just completed an OoT Randomiser run with @Glen-i a few minutes ago? I can personally vouch for this mod.  It's an absolute riot! :D

I'm letting @Glen-i do the write up for that one ;)

The 2021 AGDQ has now been and gone, and yet again raised a ridiculous amount of money (well over £2m)!

I only caught a little this year, and pleased to see some of my very first games get a showing (e.g., Donald Duck Lucky Dime Caper). The videos are all up as usual, and already my mind was blown by the blindfolded Super Mario 64 run!  Not only with the memorisation but the back-up strats to recognise when Mario had missed something, and I’m learning new things about that game all the time, such as the different sound effects where walls join.

I’m beginning to change my opinion on the no-crowds too. While some games lose energy due to lack of reaction, at least you don’t get those late-night games where only a handful of people are left in the auditorium watching.  The tech team for these events do a fantastic job!

Completely missed the live event :(

But I did watch three runs last night.

Comfort Zone (Super Mario World hack)
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3

Loved them all :D

Awesome to see that the event raised a huge amount of money, yet again :peace:

Definitely a unique AGDQ.

 

I missed the start of the event and have been tuning in and out due to timezones for some events, but some of what I did tune in for were Metroid Prime, Spyro 3, Crash 1, Ratchet 2, Final Fantasy VII (amazing run by the way in how they just warped to the end of the game not too long after leaving Midgar), Majora's Mask, Mario 64 Blindfolded, the TASbot runs of Freedom Planet and Link's Awakening which were both ridiculous, the Sekiro race and the Link to the Past run, well, half of it. What a ridiculous run that was!

 

Generally the runs I have most interest in seeing are usually on during the evenings here but there are also a fair few that happen while I'm asleep so the Skyward Sword run was not one I was able to catch live, same with Super Mario Sunshine and the catch 'em all run of Pokemon Blue. Also because of when I realised that the event was already on I'd missed the Donkey Kong Country race.

 

Hoping to see Crash 4 in a GDQ in the future. Having already seen a Devs react to a Crash 4 speedrun for a bit there are some crazy skips you can do in some of the levels.

The Sonic runs were absolutely insane!!

I’m still catching up with the ones I missed, but the Sonic runs, the DKC race, DKR and the Mario Sunshine run are all absolute must watches if you haven’t already seen them! :hehe:

Also, this might sound mad, but one of the absolute best runs here was Mario Golf Toadstool Tour.  The sheer skill on display is insane!

I prefer the runs where shit fucks up and they have to improvise. Anything like that this year? Randomisers are normally the best for this.
