Lel is that Nameless King on the banner. The only ones I'm gonna watch are Bubbles' runs (just because that guy is a pretty spicy meme in the souls community) and Vice City. I'd love to watch Salt and Sanctuary, Titan Souls and The Turing Test too but I still haven't played those myself so rip. I feel like ESA always has more runs for me to watch tho.

I don't know, I was way more hyped for the old tas runs where they actually beat games. The 'hacking' doesn't really impress me :/

All in all I feel that this years line-up has been sub par. Looking forward to see what SGDQ has to offer though.

Oh boy that DS3 run was a trainwreck, but it was fun watching with the Speedsouls discord. Bubbles even called out Speedsouls on the interview before the run. He credited the wrong people for strats, had some meme mods on the game.
Then he crashed the game in a spot where it's consistently avoidable. Then he stopped the timer and reloaded a premade save, not before the skip where he crashed which would have made sense, instead in a spot that skipped ahead in the run. So he had started with a female character named "Robbie Rotten" (at least $12k was donated for that name to be chosen, after reloading that save his character was male and named "Kill Yourself"... He finished barely under estimate, but it would have been over estimate if he hadn't paused the timer, then messed up the glitch showcase that was also a donation incentive so we never saw the fun part of the glitch.
After the run he still tweets and says in discord that it was a good run... I'm not sure how his run even got into AGDQ considering he's not even on the leaderboards and he had said he "doesn't know what is PB is". I wonder if GDQ will actually check if the runner is good in the future. He even rescheduled his run very late which is an inconvenience for a lot of other runners. And people on /r/speedrun oddly defensive of this run whereas they tend to call out bad runs all over the place, even saying all his deaths were out of his control lel. If Souls runs weren't in very high regard at GDQ to begin with, this surely won't make them more willing have them on the marathons in the future.
But it was pretty funny nonetheless. Image

And at least some spicy memes happened: https://clips.twitch.tv/miltent/OutstandingSwanMau5

Here's also someone telling people to kill themselves: https://clips.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick/ ... eLightning

I think this has to do with the event's frequency. Twice a year for a whole week is just too much and everyone gets burned out. I'm definitely not as excited about AGDQ as I was 2-3 years ago. The novelty wears off when its so frequent :(

Maybe AGDQ could be a hardcore event where they try to go for World Records, while SGDQ could be more of a fun/casual showcase event (as is the case currently).

This is the first time in a few years that I didn't even watch some of the show. Just bad timing for me this year. But yeah, I also wasn't THAT excited to watch it.
