reminder bonesaw577 was banned from gdq this year because of his jak and daxter speedrun
dont expect him to run here or summer games
It feels like if you so much as cough in the wrong direction you're banned
Pro tip: the Default Twitch viewer is shit.
would recommend downloading streamlink and (optional) The streamlink twitch gui which lets you control it without a cmd window.
Streamlink will allow you to play twitch streams on your media player on your computer (VLC, MPC, etc.). this kills ads, allows you to actually watch streams at a higher quality without it dying on you (i have ok internet and was physically incapable of watching on source till this) , and general performance improvements because it isnt running the stream on a terrible flash player, killing your memory+CPU, and allows gpu processing n shit.
make sure to edit the config file to the media player of your choice.
then you can run the twitch popout chat and basically have the same experience but with better video (running below with source, so 1080p60 )
would recommend this for any twitch stream till amazon forces them to fix the shit player
the daikatana speedrun is the only thing i need in my life
I finally get to watch AGDQ live, for the whole week even, because I got sick leave after getting surgery for a pilonidal sinus
For not being updated livestreamer still works perfectly in my experience
Excited for Quake, New Vegas, System Shock 2, Half Life: Blue Shift (with my man Cubeface), and Left 4 Dead 1.
Not many games this year that I like, it seems they're really cutting the PC stuff recently. 2014 had so many good games, and since then it's kinda collapsed IMO.
edit: oh borderlands 2 is next. cool that game is long but it's a pretty good speedrun.
I'll still be watching this marathon, but honestly I'm just not as excited about it. IMO the older (more informal) marathons were much more entertaining to watch.
"did you just assume that hearts gender"
ANOTHER BAN INCOMING
Can't wait for the TAS Block next Saturday.
I'm excited to watch but i'm broke
also Facepunch still has a chatroom used for AGDQ, you can post or pm your username if you want to join
"shout outs to my anus"
oh lord he's banned
I keep getting annoyed by the fact I keep opening this page to see the comments and then for some reason the audio plays on this page because I have the stream opened on another and it just makes everything worse.
Why is "Greetings from Germany" in the title exactly? I thought OP was German but his profile says he isn't, the event is American too.
"Brownman" was top for filename in Shovel Knight with 140$ and a minute later "Bonesaw" was top with 325$ lol
Wow, this event is even more of a shitshow than last year's was, and within the first few runs too.
Glad that word is getting out about the shittiness too.
The only good chain of events here would be for AGDQ to slowly peter out and die, and for another comfy event to take its place. I just want the comfy fun of the first few years.
It annoys me that the stream on the right has a lower framerate than the one on the left.
Woah, didn't expect that the news of this ban would rile up some of the bigger YouTubers.
I normally don't like drama but I really hope this causes a shitshow tbh.
