AGDQ 2017 is live! Come watch now because Pokemon Emerald is on stream, and the file name is Daisy so it's practically UPN theme.

The Emerald run was fun to watch. Really appreciated AJ Styles the Swablu. Made the chat a lot of fun.

Decided to finally start the process of learning how to speedrun TTYD this morning. Got my first Blooper Skip after about 20 attempts or so, so I'm super happy about it. (Spoilered large image)

I kind of want to put together a speed run for this game. Would people be interested in watching routing/attempts? It's a really cool game.

Not exactly a speed run, but a cool TAS.

I'd actually seen that video before. Perhaps this guy and MM ought to have a heart to heart, eh?

SGDQ is live, starting with halfcoordinated running Nier: Automata! It's a good time. The puns are killing me.

I forgot to post this last night when it started, but werster is currently doing an Emerald all gold symbols run.

https://www.twitch.tv/werster

He's about 8 hours in and has factory gold and pyramid silver. It's nuts. He's attempted two runs of this category before but didn't finish. I don't know of anyone else ever even attempting a run like this. It's nuts.

Update: home stretch now, he's headed for gold symbol on Battle Palace. Which is the worst one of all because of the mechanics.

As of now, in 18+ hours, he only has one loss at the Battle Pike and two at the Battle Palace. Impressive.

EDIT:

He did it in 19:04:14.79

It is finished

werster beats HeartGold in less than 2 hours (time stops upon defeating Red at Mt. Silver)

This is a category that I've followed for awhile and holy crap is this amazing. I remember when the first route with Raikou was world record, that was over 20 minutes and almost four years ago. Incredible how far the routing has come with RNG manipulation.

Randomized A Link to the Past runs are very fun to watch (and play). There's a channel on youtube that posts vods of these races and they are fun to watch. Here is one of the craziest vods I've seen.

The thing is that this tournament is keysanity. Which means not only are all the items randomized (Hammer, etc), but as are all the keys for the dungeons. There is a logic to it so it won't make the game impossible to beat (Needing the hammer to get the hammer, etc).

You might have needed to have played alttp to appreciate it though. Although there are also some minor glitches you need to know (fake flippers, bomb jumps, etc). But I've watched a lot of these vods and this craziest one by far.

Yeah Keysanity gets ballistic on occasion. Rando's something I've been doing for a few months now, still can't quite get the execution down pat. Especially swordless, which Open really likes giving you for a long time for some reason.

You kind of need to learn how to do a lot of bosses swordless, and ganon with a weak sword and/or arrowless. But if Skull Woods is required for any reason then it's in the logic to get a sword to clear it.

Keysanity is tougher because to really race you need to learn the Ice Palace bomb jump and PoD bomb jump. The first being easier and the second being tougher to learn.

I'd be interested in doing a UPN Race if we had anymore interest in it. Maybe starting easier and w/o keysanity. >_>;

It'd be less learning and more remembering, I think the last time I did a seed they were still on v27. Dissertations eat up me free time and given my inadequacies at the game it takes a full afternoon for me.
