Very exciting! I wish I had more free time to enjoy the proceedings, but unfortunately I resume full time work pretty much exactly when this kicks off! :kiddysad:

The fun starts in ...well heck, it's underway now! There's lots of gaming goodness to enjoy... but the DKC action doesn't get underway until day 4 of the event.

Thanks for sharing, Stone!

We now have a promo banner in place. :D

YEAH! This is awesome stuff. I'll be a part of the event, though I won't run anything this year. But I will be doing commentary for DKC. So enjoy hearing my crappy accent trying to explain some details about stuff =).

Also, it's recommended to use this link for the event page: http://gamesdonequick.com/. It will have the updated information that the other marathon page won't have.

8 hours and counting.

I'm looking forward to this, Though most of the runs on my radar don't kick off until the next day.

These marathons always put me in good spirits.

@Qyzbud: I'm not sure if it's error on my side, but your countdown timer looks like it's 1 hour off.
It says 2 hours and 35 minutes while in the chat on twitch, everyone expects the marathon to start in 1 hour and 35 minutes :)

Ah, whoops... Sorry to anyone this confused. Hopefully nobody missed out on the start due to me muddling up my time zone info. :?

Anyway, guys... it's happening! Watch, enjoy, donate! :D

I missed it! Just finished work, and caught the last few moments of the B-K run... wish I'd seen more of that one, but there's always the replay, I guess...

The next couple of games I haven't even heard of (I Wanna be the Guy, Hotline Miami), but I'll probably take a look anyway. :)

I'll go ahead and embed a countdown to the DKC run in the first post — hopefully getting it right this time! :P

The guy playing BK has insane coordination. That was a very slick run.

@Qyz: You missed the Skype call-in from Grant Kirkhope!

Ah, You missed a good one. Grant Kirkhope the games composer was even on Skype with them during Rusty Bucket Bay.

Surprised you've never heard of I want to be the guy. It's kind of notorious for it's difficulty.

I was really surprised by the result of the SMW TAS :D:D:D!!
While I don't really like Pong, I had fun playing some Snake. Too bad I messed up :(.

Just the fact it was possible to program them into the game like that was mind blowing. xD Creative use of multitap indeed.

I've just watched the TASes and although I've already seen some of them, I was totally surprised to see Pong and Snake! I expected to see the ending of SMW, like in the published TAS :D

Time to watch BK, it can be found here:

Doesn't work that well right now...

That's exactly what went off.

SDA Twitter update:
"Trihex is on fire! Either that, or the kitchen at AGDQ. We'll be right back!"

They're back :)

Ah, apparently there was a small fire somewhere in the building.

As always, there are donations going on for saving or not saving the animals in Super Metroid.
Even if they won't be saved in the game, we know they would save them in real life:

Although this animal is not real one :D

Someone already photoshopped it to make it more dramatic:

Hi guys, I've just double-checked the countdown to Hippie's DKC run, and I think it was off by quite a few hours from the schedule, somehow... :?

I have adjusted it, and I think it's right... I believe the DKC run should start in just under 12 hours, but please let me know if this is incorrect!

Should be around 5½ hours now until it's DKC time! But you never know, schedule tends to not be followed =). Especially when runs like this Fire Emblem run went 30 minutes over its time...

Hype it up though!

Thanks, Tompa! The schedule changed again just now, so I've removed the timer... too hard to keep it accurate (or even get it accurate at all :p).

Everyone: Please just watch the stream, or refresh the schedule page to be sure you don't miss the DKC runs! I'll be at work while they're on, sadly. :(

I had a good time during DKC at least :D. Even though I caused Hippie to die, trying to teach him new strats mid-run. My bad!

I gave DKC-atlas a shoutout at least :).

Thanks for the shout-out, Tompa! I'm only just now getting to watch the replay, as work has been quite demanding. :(

Thank god it's Friday.

Before I start watching, here are links for reference:
  • DKC ← played by NewAgeRetroHippie
  • DKC2 ← played by reflected
  • DKC3 ← played by MorKs

I'm sure they are all full of tricks, techniques, and skills worth watching. :)

Hmmm. I may watch some of these later, as I can guess they'll be readily available to watch any time on a site like You Tube, after this even is over and done with.

Viewing the list that was posted, there are probably quite a few games I'd be interested in wat-ching.....

dammit, now I will never be able to look at Sonic R the same way ever again. :kiddysad:
And it was one of my favourite Sanic games too!
