    As much as I enjoyed watching that run, he did totally deserve that for telling people to spam a corporate twitter account (American Airlines, wasn't it?).

    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

    Any noticeable differences with it and livestreamer?

    Not that I use livestreamer for the moment, MPV supports youtube-dl after all so I can run Twitch streams directly in it. https://mpv.io/

    besides livestreamer not being updated in almost 2 years not really

    streamlink is just a actually-being-updated version

    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.

    They use an amazing glitch that allows the mechromancer to shoot a shotgun extremely fast and have high damage. They do the killing where the others do the objectives. It's a long but quite fun speedrun.

    They'll take him out back behind the chemical sheds and put a bullet in his head once his run is over.

    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.

    Because so many of the donations they read start with that I'm guessing

    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.

    TO ruin it further, a friend pointed out there's a slight colour difference between the two screens too.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of the run!

    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.
