Speedrunners are insane people in my eyes, but I'll be damned if they aren't fascinating once they start going in-depth about their passion.

I'm almost at the point of considering this stuff a craft in itself. There's so much nuance and skill to it.

 

I adore this guy's channel. I posted some of his stuff in the Video Essay thread, over on the Film & Television board.

I really admire this ethos of "born too late to explore the world, born too early to explore space, born just in time to explore the absolute limits of a video game." While that sounds trivial, the sheer system mastery of high-level speed-running is astonishing, and of course very much motivated by the thrill of discovery as much as the satisfaction of achievement.

Anybody catch the Overwatch Quarterfinals on ESPN? I tried to check it out for the novelty, but for me in was incomprehensible. I don't think a team FPS is the right kind of game for spectators to watch on a single screen.

Why would they announce the update at Evo when the game isn't there?

An Uncanny Edition for a Marvel vs Capcom game that'll feature a bunch of new characters that many have been asking for? Now doesn't that sound familiar?

Regardless of whether Capcom's going to announce anything at EVO or even at their panel at next week's Comic Con, I simply don't buy this rumour at all. Colour me surprised if it does turn out to be true, but I feel the odds are very unlikely.

Not a chance in hell. Something like this would never happen after both Marvel and Capcom shot themselves in the foot and promptly left this game to rot.

In fact any chance of both reconcilling over what ended up happening to Infinite is a crapshoot at best.

One thing I love about speedrunning it that it makes me see my favorite games from a different angle. Even the simplest of games can have so much tech behind them, like the clever use of glitches, developer oversights and taking intentional deaths/damage. I don't speedrun games myself but watching runs helped me to beat some games faster, like Resident Evil 2 where unlocking all content requires multiple playthroughs.

I'd love for MvCI to get an update, but I'd love more for Capcom to just make a VS-style game with full creative control. I have no faith in Marvel to abstain from interfering or imposing ludicrous deadlines. They have no respect for their own properties.

A Capcom vs. Capcom game would be ideal. There'd be no Disney pulling the strings, while still retaining the same gameplay style, and there could be a wider array of Capcom characters that we haven't seen in a while. With Capcom having control over the second half of the roster, we could see characters like Gene or Lord Raptor come out of retirement.

Storm, Psylocke, and Magneto would be amazing adds since its the infamous team....preferably with Pringles. Ruby Heart would be an interesting return character.

It would mostly jump around from player to player's hud, which was very disorienting. Occasionally they'd cut to a wide camera to show the action, but it was still incomprehensible chaos. They're gonna have to work hard to make this viable.

What's worse about the display is that it's not just the regular game hud, ESPN adds MORE information on the screen for the audience, making it a cluttered mess!

Here's a video from before the current tournament, but this is how they go about it, from the official ESPN Youtube.

Can anyone make heads or tails of this?

Forget team FPS, gimme fighting games on ESPN. I'd actually understand what's going on, and I'd actually have fun watching. I could watch that shit ALL DAY.

Maybe once Smash Ultimate comes out? Except I know Nintendo can be super anal about that kind of thing.

After the R. Mika censorship, you know fighting game devs have to be hesitant about their games being on ESPN.

EVO apparently can't handle Cammy's default outfit without throwing conniptions, so I would have to wonder how picky ESPN would be about the outline of fictional female anatomy being shown on TV.
