One handed Vanquish speedrun? That sounds interesting.

I love AGDQ. Will watch.
That's the one that caught my too! Gotta catch that.
From his Twitch page:

I have a physical disability called hemiparesis that lowers coordination and feeling in my right side. While I'm not really deformed, this does affect my daily life and I play a majority of games better one-handed rather than with two; this includes all games I speedrun. Also, I like the way it looks (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Oh wow, this really snuck up on me this year. Feels like Sgdq was a couple weeks ago.

Can't believe it's already that time again.

I'll definitely be watching what I can.

I am so pumped to watch this, the lineup this year is really good! (I mean, when has it not, though?) Really wanna see the one-handed Vanquish and looking forward to DKCTF being the opener.

OK I don't want to be "that guy" but am I the only one who noticed some of the regular runners are not running? No Cosmo? No Sig? Spike Vegeta?

Who wants to see the 4th best Mario player in the world?

Edit: (Serious Reply) Sig doesn't run Mario anymore, he plays SSBM.
Cosmo is playing SSB4, probably won't ever touch his OOT any% time, and isn't competitive at WW anymore.

And this year, they have 3 japanese runners attending, so it's pretty cool.

I only know 0xwas, forgot the names of the other two.

Sig hasn't been speedrunning nearly that much SM64 this past year (he also doesn't have WR anymore iirc) and Cosmo stopped speedrunning the OoT stuff he was doing in favor of playing Smash 4 instead. Spike Vegeta I guess submitted DKCTF and/or Kingdom Hearts and... I guess they decided to choose the other person for DKCTF as he's probably better than Spike or something. And KH is a bid war so... not sure if Spike is going to running either one, I'd assume he has to be a runner for one of them or maybe both as it says "Various" on it for the... runners.

Cosmo will probably at least commentate OoT 100% (the finale).

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II, Kaizo Mario World, Kirby Super Star, William Shatner's Tekwar and hopefully KHIIFM Critical are absolute must watches for me.
