    Is that true, or speculation?

    I'd imagine it's kinda hard to set up, since there's only two 2D Mario titles actually being played, which means they probably don't have enough runners who could actually do it this time around.
    That's just a joke, I don't know why they don't have it.

    But it's not unreasonable to assume that whatever internal reason they have has a reasonable chance of being petty given all of the drama.

    So far the donation comments have been pretty uneventful. The last AGDQ marathon's were pretty crazy, half of them were like "Greetings from Germany! My whole family and all of my neighbors just died from cancer and I think I'm ne-"

    They don't have it because allegedly they went way, way over time last year.

    But like who gives a fuck.

    uhhh everybody?

    like you're forgetting the fact that there's a schedule for a reason. why should a runner have to suffer a 1-2 hour delay, especially if it's running into the early morning? why should viewers waiting for a certain game also have to get hit with a delay?

    I remember a couple of the stages gave both teams a lot of trouble, but it was still pretty fun to watch.

    Pay me. PAY ME. This is literally my job. Your cabling is horrendous and I see no gaff tape anywhere. You scrubs don't even have a tech skirt to hide that ungodly mess.

    I stopped watching after they had the shushing knitting Room Mom that one year. AGDQ (iirc) is actually owned by the cancer foundation they shill for, or something like that. They need a competitor and quick. It's a mess and I can't bring myself to watch it live anymore.

    But at least BroTeam is there now to catch all the juicy shit.

    I vaguely remember during SGQD, his mic would never be on when he was talking. They usually had it fixed a lot faster though.

    It looks like PowerUp Audio aren't doing this event which might explain it. https://mobile.twitter.com/PowerUpAu...79813701627904

    GDQ really loves those god damn boring as shit and long as hell FF runs. There's been at least one of these literally in every event.

    Reminder the SpeedRun subreddit has a VOD thread, with links and timestamps to the runs if you missed any.

    Dammit, I look away for two minutes because the setup was taking years and when I come back they've already beaten Cutman.

    Edited:

    The races are always the funnest to watch.

    And one runner already has to restart after soft-locking himself. Poor guy.

    I never understood why it takes them so long to set up the next game. How hard is it to just plug in 2 SNES?

    Is there anything interesting going on in Super Mario Kart? The 2d nature of the game plus what they're showing right now makes it look like it's going to be half an hour of cutting corners and little else.

    They should have all that ironed out beforehand though. From the console to the stream, they should have everything preset as much as possible.

    I don't know who provides the AV services for these, but they could be doing a whole lot better.

    If it has anything to do with the team that is responsible for the mess that is that wiring, I'm not surprised.

    I miss the fun block segments like Scary Games Done Quick and Awful Games Done Quick. Also for some reason, they no longer list the donation incentives anywhere.

    It just seems like they sucked the fun completely out of the whole event.

    I googled it and found this page for the donation incentives.
    I haven't been watching much, but I thought they were displaying some of the incentives and their progress on the stream? I remember seeing the bid war for file names and armor in shovel knight show up a few times earlier.
