Looking forward to this, looks like there's some fun and silly games on the schedule.

Twitch name is dragonista, though I'm not sure we're ever logged in when watching on console.

AGDQ gets worst year after year unfortunately

Last year felt way too strict and professional, it was a sterilized version of the old AGDQ, i can understand that the bigger the event becomes the more strict certain rules will be...yet, i miss the couch crazy talks, the interaction with the crowd and the casual shit talk, A LOT

It's just not the same thing that you could start watching with a beer expecting to laugh together with the crowd

Hell, the best part of last year was the skype call with Grant Kirkhope, dude just going all in not giving a fuck

Yes, it's this time of the year again.

Can't wait for another Tetris Grand Master run.

A thing I might not be doing for future. Looking at the submissions list.

Why? In the submissions list there is an F-Zero GX one handed run (because you need to crush 99% of gamers egos by saying "but you can't beat F-Zero GX with a hand tied behind your back?"). However, the runner is unable to attend so the run isn't happening (they are far from the only drop out as well). Then again since submissions need evidence it is a pretty cool run but more exciting with commentary and the live audience.

I notice no setup times in the schedule as well. There seem to BONUS instead which I assume replace these?

I probably won't be watching many runs live (bad times or just not interested) and for longer games I watch I might even even watch them at *1.25 speed on youtube (it should be noted they are clamping down on third party uploads of videos, though runners will be upload their runs).

Yay more TGM. They really ought to have a shmup scoring exhibition if they're doing TGM again. Those games are equally impressive at the highest level, although I guess less relate-able than TGM. Looking forward to more TASbot stuff too (now I notice Ikaruga is in there, heh)
