AGDQ wrapped up early Sunday morning.  If you weren't able to catch any of the broadcasts, they are still available over at Twitch.  Here is a list of a few of my favorite events.

January 5th 5:50 PM - 2P1C Super Metroid Any% 

This was fantastic.  I have a hard enough time trying to match the speed of these runners when I have full control of my gamepad, but two players using the same controller?  Ridiculous. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iboAVraoMTY

January 6th 8:18 PM - Super Mario Maker

I've seen a few videos on YouTube of players running sadistic creations from the minds of fellow gamers, but this was really impressive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3An7eUsnUc

January 7th 4:14 PM - StepMania

I missed this one initially, but Daryl told me I really needed to see it.  I'm glad I did.  I was really sad there wasn't a Tetris event this year, but the StepMania run made up for it.  The whole demonstration was great, but skip to 26:45 if you dare.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQYBzEreO5k

January 8th 5:22 PM to 8:20 PM - Mega Man block

I love the Mega Man franchise, and I couldn't decide which run to choose.

January 9th TASBot/Legend of Zelda Link to the Past/Super Metroid

I will bow to the TASBot overlords when the robot army enslaves humanity.

TASBot vs Brain Age https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U22_noWVwsE

TASBot vs Mario Kart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dedwDZxKnkI

TASBot vs Zelda 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nikHxEwAddw

TASBot vs Super Mario Brothers 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LA--2KMwWPk

The reverse boss order run for A Link to the Past starts slow, but worth the watch.  The commentary throughout the run is fantastic.  i couldn't find a clip for the run, but you can skip to 20:03:30. http://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick/v/34377308.  The Super Metroid RBO run can also be found at this link.  Skip to 22:51:20.
