I completely forgot AGDQ started so early, it was a great surprise! Really looking forward to Carl Sagan's Kaizo Mario World run. I've never seen him play it but he seemed like a cool guy when he co-hosted Trihex's Yoshi's Island run.
I haven't noticed. If anything, 70% of the editorials are done by Patrick. Too much Patrick.
Vinny filled a similar role when he was at GB prime. They both mesh well with others and as such make them a fairly obvious pick for most quick looks. Jeff probably spends more time than you'd think in CBS meetings as the 'head' of GB, while Drew and Jason have video projects they need to work on. That normally leaves Brad and Dan to shoulder the weight on quicklooks. In all honesty I'm fine with Dan being in the majority of content, mind you I felt the same way with Vinny.
The majority of the short runs are about a half an hour. I missed a few runs like SM64 120 star run, Cosmo's OoT and some of the other popular ones but almost all of runs that I watched were really well done. Congratulations to all of the runners for doing an amazing job over the week, as well as everybody working behind the scenes. AGDQ 2015 HYPE!
Edit: What's the easiest way to hide the wall of text for each category that I've made? I tried using the spoiler block but it just attached a "click to show" tag to each of my bulletpoints ;_;
@donmfjohnson: There's no penalty to unplugging the internet, or even turning off your PS3 (Although you run the risk of corrupting your save). I did it a lot when I played the final parts of DeS and nothing bad happened.
I haven't seen the latest episode (Just finished part two) but it's laughable to see people defending the asshole invader with the scraping spear. It takes a lot of time and effort to craft the +7 spear in the first place, not to mention the guy also had Yurt's armour equipped (Which to be fair is the most appropriate armour to wear considering what he was doing). I'm not sure what ring or spell he was using to regenerate health that fast but there's no way you could deny he was a low-level griefer.
Who knows, maybe the invader was just really into role playing and thought "HEY, wouldn't it be a great idea if I foreshadowed how much of a prick Yurt was? That'll really help Brad!".
The Barkley run was definitely my favourite, as was the Viewtiful Joe and Windwaker runs by Cosmo. I just watched the Half Life 1 run and it was pretty amazing to see somebody beat it in less than 40 minutes but I'm trying to figure out if Gunnar Optik's sponsored him? Hearing him go back to "I'm using these Gunnar's, they're really good" felt pretty skeezy.
