  1. Hey another one of these. This was my 8th GDQ overall, goddamn.
  3. This is also probably the first GDQ where I spent most of my time doing stuff with other people. Usually I would hang out in the food room with a portable system and watch the stream from there, but it was a bit tough this year due to that projector not having a speaker until like the last day (so you couldn't hear anything) and the board games being moved to that room (so you still couldn't hear anything)
  5. Sunday was Golden's video game Quiz Bowl, and while Team Oldboiz got knocked out in round one, it was a blast to participate in and listen to. I even answered two things correctly!
  6. Tuesday was the Wario's Woods tourney, and I honestly don't remember how that went since it was so early in the week, oops.
  7. Wednesday was PPL tourney, and I remember knocking some poor guy out right away before getting bodied by the rest of my group. Also had the team Girls on Fire lunch trip this day which was super nice to hang out with the girls and chat about team plans for 2018.
  8. Thursday was my longest day due to awful block and a volunteer shift, but I still made it to the Yoshi's Cookie BAKERS BLITZ and took FOURTH PLACE YEEEAH! Pic of top four: https://twitter.com/concavetriangle/status/951629573921394689
  9. Friday was the PS1 Mystery Tourney, which I didn't get to stay for the entirety of, but got to play two very interesting games (Rescue Shot and some Gundam fighting game). Shasta and Lynxwinters(I think) got to play Chocobo Racing which I provided, and I believe Digimon Rumble Arena and Inuyasha were also played (which I brought but cavemandcj also owned). Also I went to the LTTP Rando Community Awards and Dinner which was another nice little trip outside of the hotel. The trophies that people got were cute.
  11. In general I ended up hanging around people a lot more. Met a lot of new people at brekkist, chilled with people in the casual room playing rhythm games, puzzle games, and even showing off my own speedgames.
  13. Runs I liked: Splatoon 2, Prinny 2, Wario's WOOOOODS, DKC1 RBO, Fire Emblem 8, all of Awful Block (but especially Arabian Nights, Enviro-Bear, Titenic, and Athena), LTTP Rando
  14. Runs I need to watch: Strider, both Battletoads, El Matador, Deadly Towers, Dragon Warrior, Armed with Wings, TAIKER, TASBot does Monkey Balll, TASBot does Dram World 2, Punch-Out + Super Punch-Out, Super Mario Land 2

  35. I won't be at SGDQ this year, hopefully the new location works out for y'all. I do plan to be at RPGLB, however, and look forward to experiencing a smaller marathon once again. Gonna submit MKR, Shepherd's Crossing, and hopefully GL2 if I can get a run video made this week. Look forward to weekly MKR races for a while. I'd also like to do a Strider run using the tutorial from AGDQ because #AnyoneCanStrider, get some times on the PPL and WOOOOODS leader boards, and get an actual recorded new PB in Chocobo Racing.
