    Also it's nice to see CarcinogenSDA on the couch. He's a pretty cool RE runner.

    That MGS 2 run turned out a lot better than I expected. That metal gear ray fight was insane on European extreme difficulty.

    Well that RE0 run went over estimate by 17 seconds, but then they changed the estimate a minute down very late into the run for some reason.

    the game lineup is as good as last years, not really excited about anything in particular.

    I wish Blechy was on the couch more often, I love listening to him.

    That MGS 2 run turned out a lot better than I expected. That metal gear ray fight was insane on European extreme difficulty.
    He handled the MG Ray fight extremely well, it's quite punishing on that difficulty since it's so goddamn long.

    Aw yeah. Donated $50 to create the PJSalt name incentive for Salt and Sanctuary's name (with another $25 going to the BL2 glitch exhibition) during the OoT3D run yesterday. Good to see it's at $900+ already. Really want to see that run.

    It's a souls-like made by 2 people and it's shockingly good. There are a bunch of glitches that can be used to speedrun, which don't break the game, and the developer's response to the discovery of them was "I ain't even mad."

    I'd love to see a "speedrunners versus developers" race at a future *GDQ. I'm sure a dev could find some new speedrun tech if they looked hard enough at their code. And even if they don't do nearly as well, it could still be amusing as hell to hear their commentary.

    staff completely screwed the incentive part of the turing test run by not giving azorae the information he asked for several times throughout the run. run was still good but people gave money for that incentive.

    we're how many years in now? and they still can't get their shit together.

    I think it's because PowerUp Audio aren't doing the setup this year. Jesus this run, you can barely hear the runner over the game audio for this Kirby game.

    Actually, I think they just fixed it. It's a bit better now.

    What I want to know is why there's such a disparity in visual/audio quality between monitors.
    During the Megaman race, one monitor was really fucking yellow, and one of the others had ridiculously muffled sound quality.

    I cannot ever justify audio balancing issues. It takes two seconds of listening to a video to find out which channel of audio needs to be bumped or lowered.

    Seriously, it can't be that hard. This guy on the couch is about 10x louder than everyone else and is clipping. Sheesh.

    Wow, now the Super Monkey Ball volume is suddenly waaaaay louder and is drowning everyone out. Get it together people.

    So, as of this time, the official AGDQ YouTube channel has uploaded 13 runs/clips from the current event, but hasn't uploaded the Ape Escape 2 run (among a few others).

    Pro tip, look at your levels. If one of them is blowing the fuck out then you should probably lower it.

    Also they shouldn't be the same volume oh my god that's not how mixing works.
