Awesome Games Done Quick, the yearly speedrunning stream, is presently occurring on Twitch. They’re even on monitor to boost over $3 million — maybe even approaching 2020’s record of $3.13 million — for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
We’ve already seen speedruns of Mega Man 2, Chicory: A Colorful Tale, and Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut, however arguably the spotlight right now may have been the three-way Pokémon Crystal race that is additionally a key merchandise randomiser run.
What does that imply? Well, keizaron, shenanagans, and 360chrism all tried to beat the sport (the principle requirement is to beat Red), however with all the important thing objects (just like the bike, fishing rods, and S.S. Ticket) have all been shuffled. That makes it fairly arduous to finish the sport so as, as a result of a number of places would require particular key objects to entry.
When the run was about two-thirds of the way in which by means of, shenanagans was within the lead, gymnasium badge-wise — however then he made the error of badmouthing Bulbasaur, as a result of apparently selecting Bulbasaur as a starter makes your speedrun considerably slower than the opposite two starters. “If we attain $900k [during the run], I’ll write a written apology,” he mentioned — and the AGDQ workers added it as a milestone.
An hour later, keizaron received the race, beating the sport in 2 hours, 12 minutes, and 39 seconds. 360chrism got here second, with a time of two:17:04, after which… properly, then the chat got here third, reaching that $900k milestone earlier than shenanagans was in a position to end, making him fourth place in a three-player race. Ouch.
So, now he has to apologise to Bulbasaur. In writing. Serves him proper!
