F-Zero in 2015 marathons (AGDQ, SGDQ, ESA)
Reply to this Post
Root Topic

Thought I'd reach out and see if anyone has particular plans on this. For those unfamiliar, these are week-long live speedrun marathons that raise money for charity: Awesome Games Done Quick (January in Washington DC, USA), Summer Games Done Quick (June-July in Denver, Colorado, USA), and European Speedster Assembly (July-August in Skövde, Sweden). These three events are pretty much the biggest stage for showcasing video game speedruns. They're also a great opportunity for speedrunners (or time attackers in our case) to meet and hang out.

In particular, I want to point out that AGDQ's submissions are coming up fast - they'll be open from August 16 to September 3, as explained here: https://forum.speeddemosarchive.com/post/agdq_2015_game_submissions_will_open_august_16th_at_3pm_edt.html

It was great how we got an F-Zero block going at AGDQ 2014, even if it had to be split up a bit in the end; and it was definitely fun to meet a lot of F-Zero players in the same event. I'm wondering if we want to organize something similar in 2015. It doesn't necessarily have to be AGDQ; maybe we can use this thread to figure out which events everyone can go to (or already plans to go to).

 

Right now I want to attend one marathon in 2015, but I haven't decided which. I am willing to attend any of AGDQ, SGDQ, or ESA. I most likely won't be submitting any games myself. If I attend an event with some F-Zero players, I'll bring my laptop and capture equipment to help record versus matches!

First things first, post what games you can do, and your availability.

 

F-Zero GX - Max Speed

Fickle work schedule for my days off, but I am always home by 10:30 PM MST.

I can do all games except X and GX. Though if we perhaps have some races in those games I could still maybe participate and suck badly.

Pretty flexible with times, though prime-time on Sundays I'm usually busy for a couple of hours. Also in late October I'll be away over a weekend.

I can play F-Zero and if there is a FZX race, I can participate in that too for the hell of it. I'm pretty much free whenever in the evening and on the weekends. Count me out for the last week of October though.

 I'd like to participate in the marathon , playing GX only. Hopefully I can get the audio issue sorted before then. 

Currently I'm free on Thursdays and Fridays, and weekends.

I can't participate because i'm brazillian and i'm really bad at speedruns. Also I'm pretty bad at speaking english (I'm good at writing though).

here's a couple of recordings with chat reactions. i gave priority to the quakenet chat because twitch chat is useless.

I recorded a session of GX versus matches at AGDQ 2015. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqxXxhrcmmc

 Great job on all the runs, guys! It was lots of fun to watch.

Anyway, I have a bit of a suggestion.

At AGDQ, they played a mod of Portal called Aperture Tag, and there was a run of Kaizo Mario... so mods aren't out of the question... what about F-Zero X Climax for SGDQ? It's a really cool mod that had a ton of work and effort put into it, I think it'd be really cool if it got some recognition. I don't know if anyone runs it, but there's certainly time for anyone good at X's mechanics to learn the courses.

I fight for a reason. I win for a reason.

WMJ has it, so it has a chance at ESA this year.
