Sooooo... I clearly missed something magical.

Bot Colony is all build up until some beautiful payoffs. Vinny's Quick Look may have a slow start, but if you can hang on till the end you're in for a ride. If you can get there, you too can know the pain of the Pepper Grinder. This game is perfect for Vinny.

I dunno, I think it started off strong with Reading With Vinny.

I found that kind of wrapped around and went from funny to not funny to funny again. I feel like everyone's milage will vary on that one.

Is there any place that has kept an archive of the bonus stream? I remember there were some gems from AGDQ and I wondered if anyone was keeping timestamps or whatnot.

I think reddit had a rundown, but the Bonus Stream was really short this year. I don't know if it was because everyone had to fly home or the space they had was closed up early. But you can find a list at the bottom of this page's rundown of the event.

Doing some catch up here, I watched the La Mulana and Trials Evolution runs and both of them were pretty great. The La Mulana one especially considering how obtuse that game is with puzzles and everything. And Trials Evolution was just impressive all around.

Chili Cheese Fries are delicious! But it's something I only want to have every once and awhile due to... digestive issues. What goes in has to come out eventually. But they're super good, no lie.

Metal Wolf Chaos, because... whatever! Probably the most American game ever made that isn't from America. Thanks FromSoftware! What's especially great to top off this awesome run is some of the bonus stuff after beating the game. I'm so glad they made the donation incentive to keep all the cutscenes in. Easily the highlight of the marathon.

Anything with PJ DiCesare from Battletoads and Double Dragon to Super Scythes and Crossbows Ghouls n' Ghosts. No such thing as a normal run when he's involved, haha.

I never played the game or had much interest in it, but the Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg run was really cool to watch, especially with some of the skips the runner pulls off.

And while I really don't like Yoshi's Story, I've played enough of it that it was a pretty tense run. I don't know if it was because the runner was really nervous, or the fact that going for all Melons can be really tricky. But I found it a good time all the same.

Yeah, that's the one thing that's kind of annoying with the pogo shovel is how you can't cancel it unless you do a normal attack. If you release down, you'll still have your pogo move going, so in order to stop breaking blocks you want to land on, you have to attack in the air. They pull this trick on you a few other times in the game, so stay vigilant about it! Good luck.

"Gerstman" is currently winning. Can it hold the lead?

EDIT: $400+ for the other name in the span of 1 minute. Is "Gerstman" destined do lose?

Muxie vs. Gerstman is turning out to be a pretty exciting bid war. Good thing it's for charity!

@rachelepithet: This one?

Tried it, didn't work.

You didn't try hard enough!!!

Police Sketch Jeff

Oh god! What the fuck. That's one of the monsters from Amnesia! I know that because you can't look at it for too long or you'll go insane! Haha.
