RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Mario Bros. 3 All Switches 1:05:00 NES USA Link A relatively new category of Super Mario Bros. 3 much like All Fortresses, this completes the game while hitting all 38 of the game's P-Switches, entering hidden rooms no other category in the game shows. All three Warp Whistles are used as well, but in a different way than in All Fortresses. Category is about as long as Warpless. Will be there the entire week. Afternoons/evenings preferred.
RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Metroid / A Link to the Past Combo Randomizer Defeat Ganon & Mother Brain (co-op, hard logic) 3:45:00 SNES USA Link I have showcased this combo randomizer at many other events including WWL4D2HD earlier this year. Our goal is to collect the necessary items to defeat both Ganon and Mother Brain, which involves traversing back and forth between both games - often many times at that. The difference between previous showcases and this one is we will be using the "Hard" logic setting for Super Metroid - this can force Super Metroid speedrun tech for progression in the seed. It's a great showcase for people who have seen standalone ALTTP Randomizer but not this because of the "Whaaaaaaaat?" factor of the linked games. Submitting as a co-op between myself and Stump. I will play the ALTTP sections and Stump will play the Super Metroid sections. stump I will be available the entire week. Afternoons or evenings preferred.
stumpstump Super Metroid / A Link to the Past Combo Randomizer Defeat Ganon & Mother Brain (co-op, hard logic) 3:45:00 SNES Link Partner for RaikouRider's submission (SM for me, ALttP for him). Will use the Hard SM logic (roughly equivalent to tournament difficulty). RaikouRider Entire marathon
MatthiaGryffineMatthiaGryffine Final Fantasy XIV 2.0 Light Party Dungeons - Solo Red Mage 1:10:00 PS4 USA Link This is a game that is not well known as a speedrun game because the large majority of the WRs in this game are in individual dungeons. I have recently played in this game in a couple of speedrun marathons in March and would like to add a live event such as this one. Available all days, no restrictions.
RazorflameRazorflame Dungeon Hearts 0:48:00 PC USA Link This game is a fun, exciting, entertaining difficult match 3-style strategy puzzle RPG mixture that gives high octane play with extremely high level play and technical play. Difficulty of this game is off the charts and makes this game absolutely thrilling to both run and watch. Gimmicks and a variety of possible opponents that you fight throughout the game keep the game fresh and entertaining to watch for the audience, and interesting for the runner to perform. Full availability, so long as a few hours notice is given beforehand.
RazorflameRazorflame Pokémon Puzzle Challenge Challenge Mode - Intense 0:40:00 GBC USA Link This game is a solid gem of a game in the Puzzle League/Panel de Pon franchise that really incorporates lots of high level technical play, along with a wealth of knowledge about game mechanics and extremely brutal computer challengers that all make for a very exciting, edge-of-your-seat style of game that will leave everyone looking for more afterwords. This category is the shorter category of the two for this game that I am submitting, and features just the hardest difficulty, which shows the harder aspect of the game, and the higher level play, but leaves out the entire Challenge Mode experience. No restrictions, but would like a few hours notice before the run.
RazorflameRazorflame Pokémon Puzzle Challenge Challenge Mode - Easy-Intense 1:25:00 GBC USA Link This game is a solid gem of a game in the Puzzle League/Panel de Pon franchise that really incorporates lots of high level technical play, along with a wealth of knowledge about game mechanics and extremely brutal computer challengers that all make for a very exciting, edge-of-your-seat style of game that will leave everyone looking for more afterwords. This category showcases more technical, high-level play to quick kill many of the easier difficulties' opponents, and offers a wide variety of play that will keep everyone entertained throughout the entire run. This category is the longer category of the two, and shows everything that this game's challenge mode has to offer, including more technical play to quick kill many of the easier difficulties' opponents, and offers a wide variety of play that will keep everyone entertained throughout the entire run. No restrictions. I ask that a few hours notice be given before the run.
NetaraNetara Final Fantasy VII PC 3:15:00 PC USA Link Many categories of this game exist with a lot of interesting tech. However the category being submitted to NASA 2019 is the PC Any% category which uses the HD Remaster PC version in order to break the game wide open to the delight of viewers. Watch as Cloud holds multiple conversations at once to skip cutscenes, sneak out of towns, and avoid cameras. Then, make sure not to blink or you might miss any one of three separate Motorball fights! Do you like motorcycles? So does Cloud! Enough, in fact, to ride them multiple times during the course of the run. However, don't think this run is all pretty dresses and grenades; danger lurks in the forests where Yuffie aims to ruin runs by being the sneakiest ninja. Those who are blessed by her presence will get to progress shortly after to the mystical Debug Room, where dreams are made and characters gain new unwieldy names, until eventually Sephiroth is defeated in a single swing of Cloud's sword... Omnislash? What's Omnislash? 0 I be available on any of the event days starting at 7am and ending by midnight (all times edt)
C7MeteorsC7Meteors Distance Adventure 0:42:00 PC USA Link Because its a good speedrun and i go fast also you let us host our marathon on your channel and I got WR haha Im gonna be there for the whole week haha
KitokoKitoko Sonic Robo Blast 2 Beat The Game 0:30:00 PC USA Link Sonic Robo Blast 2 is a fast-paced platformer that is focused around optimization rather than glitch tricks, because the game has very few glitches. It's a relic that keeps getting updates from the developers, having a lot of love poured into it over two decades. There is almost no downtime in the run, but also plenty of history to talk about. there are still some glitches useful to the speedrun, however, and they will be discussed as commentary. It's more or less, all the little things adding up to what the run has evolved into over the years. I have also played this in Sonic Speed Marathon and Blast the Process, both online marathons. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/250999071 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTuG2VqXpD0 I'll be submitting this game, and if accepted, will be its first live appearance. I currently, at this time of writing, hold the record for all categories except 160 emblems and SRB1 Remake. As such, I will let the audience pick which character I will use: Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles. I'm also quite friendly and like to make conversation, as well as answer questions. A lot of the game's speed tricks come and go fairly quickly, and as such, a wide range of speed tricks if not all are one-shot only. That is, I get one try at them, and they're gone. If I don't get them, that's okay, there is usually always a workaround. Things can and do go wrong, as shown here. Here's a prime of example of where everything goes wrong: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/402557944 the 30 minute estimate is not solely because of this, but also because Knuckles' run is quite LONG. About 26 minutes at best. an alternative to pick-a-character is All-Emeralds, which takes about 10-11 extra minutes of time over Any%. Regardless, I can certainly commentate my own run. Though, so much happens in a row that I have to focus at times, especially when playing as Sonic. I've enclosed the speedrun.com board. Instead of simply a video. I keep all my best times there with video proof. I've done a run for Sonic speed Marathon 2019 just now. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/411473086 I went about 1 and a half minutes under estimate. I'll likely be sticking around the entire marathon, but I prefer 2PM to 12PM EST. if given enough notice for when my run is, I can play any time. Preferrably, I want a time frame identical to raikourider since I'll be rooming with him.
kimeemarukimeemaru Touhou Fuujinroku ~ Mountain of Faith Lunatic 0:20:00 PC JPN Link It was a good laff last time, figure it would be even better if more lads knew about it by planning it in advance. I'll be available the entire event, in any time slot.
PvtCbPvtCb Bomberman Hero JP Any% 0:55:00 N64 JPN Link Bomberman is THE man to watch this summer. Featuring a marathon-safe run, nonstop amazing tunes, and giant explosions, this legally distinct Star Wars Episode IV has been in GDQs and other marathons in the past with great success. The whole crowd will be saying "I did it!" but in Japanese. Whole event
PvtCbPvtCb System Shock Default Difficulty Source Port 0:15:00 PC USA Link This game has lightsabers, jet powered roller skates, robots, and three different ways to get out of bounds. It's short and sweet and I'm very good at it. Whole event
PvtCbPvtCb Castlevania: Circle of the Moon All Bosses 0:45:00 GBA JPN Link You turn into a skeleton to kill the intended last boss second to get 20+ level ups and then steamroll the game using a broken card combination system that doesn't check to see if you actually have a combination. It's a fun and glitchy run that doesn't overstay its welcome Whole event
jymotionjymotion 140 Any% 0:20:00 PC Link I have a good track record when it comes to pretentious indie platformers requiring no commentary anytime, baby
NaxHPLNaxHPL Demon's Souls Any% 1:15:00 PS3 USA Link Demon's Souls is a classic ARPG and the first game in the popular Souls series. The run makes use of the Clever Rat's Ring which greatly boosts damage when below 30% health. This makes it interesting and nerve wracking to watch because I'm always one hit away from death. The run also features out of bounds skips, sequence breaks, and dupe glitches. I will available for the entire event.
cestpatoucestpatou Streets of Rage Blaze - hardest 0:32:00 PC USA Link To premiere this run before SGDQ 2019, and as one of the main Sega Genesis' game, Streets of Rage is a fast-paced beat'em up that includes a lot of technical positioning, strategic fighting skills and good reflexes. Despite the absence of RNG, the AI follows your position and movements. Will the vigilantes be able to thwart the Syndicate's evil plans? The only way to find out is to fight on those Streets of Rage!!! anytime starting on thursday
TwoWorldsTwoWorlds Grabbed By The Ghoulies Any% NG+ 2:20:00 Xbox KOR Link This will not be your typical NG+ Gonna shake it up and make it way better Open

StingrayyStingrayy Custom Robo: Battle Revolution New Journey 2:50:00 GCN USA Link The ultimate comfy run, perfect for graveyard shift. The vod is missing parts 8/9 for some reason, sorry about that I'll be there all week but put this in the dead of night. It increases the comfyness
FFRPro21FFRPro21 Panel de Pon VS COM S-HARD 0:13:00 SNES JPN Link The very first game in the Puzzle League series featuring a bunch of fairies on the hardest difficulty setting. - June 7th: After 8PM EST - June 8th: All day
FFRPro21FFRPro21 Panel de Pon VS COM EASY - S-HARD 0:40:00 SNES JPN Link The first game in the Puzzle League series featuring fairies. Going through all 4 difficulties from easiest to hardest. - June 7th: After 8PM EST - June 8th: All day
FFRPro21FFRPro21 Tetris Attack VS (Easy - Very Hard) 0:35:00 SNES USA Link The first game in the Puzzle League series released in America. Going through all four difficulties from easiest to hardest. - June 7th: After 8PM EST - June 8th: All day
FFRPro21FFRPro21 Puzzle Bobble (SNES) 1 Player 1:15:00 SNES JPN Link The classic Arcade puzzle game on the SNES. - June 7th: After 8PM EST - June 8th: All day
FFRPro21FFRPro21 Pokémon Puzzle League 1P Stadium (Super Hard) 0:40:00 N64 USA Link The Nintendo 64 puzzle game in the Puzzle League series. Submitting as a race TaymanND - June 7th: After 8PM EST - June 8th: All day
NaegleriaNaegleria Point Blank Trilogy All Games 0:33:00 PS2 JPN Link It's more skill based than arcade runs, would basically be the run I did last year but doing each individual minigame precisely once.
NaegleriaNaegleria Sega Rally 2 10 Year Championship 1:15:00 Dreamcast USA Link It's a little over an hour of drifting.
NaegleriaNaegleria Tropico 5 Campaign 5:00:00 PC USA Link Night-shift filler.
NaegleriaNaegleria Space Channel 5 any% 0:50:00 Dreamcast USA Link It's a lotta fun.
NaegleriaNaegleria Sin & Punishment: Star Successor Hard Mode 2:20:00 WiiU USA Link It's a rail shooter by Treasure where you can save time by optimizing boss fights. There are a lot of boss fights.
TempystralTempystral Metal Slug: 1st Mission Any% 0:18:00 NGPC USA Link It's a lesser-known run-and-gun that faithfully captures Metal Slug's signature fluid animation fairly well for an 8-bit game. Tight execution and level routing is most of how you go fast. There aren't many tricks but the route involves strategically succeeding and failing certain missions to determine level order, which I think is cool. I should be available all days, preferably in the afternoon or evening.
TaymanNDTaymanND Pokemon Puzzle League 1P Stadium (Super Hard) 0:40:00 N64 USA Link Pokemon Puzzle League is a rapid-fire match three puzzle game based on the Pokemon anime. Despite the super hard difficulty being very tedious for casual players, runners of PPL are able to get quick kills by taking advantage of a quirk in the AI. Runners must not only be able to chain well, but also monitor the opponent's screen to time garbage drops. This is a very chill and impressive speed game that doesn't overstay its welcome. FFRPro21 Any time/day. Race with FFRPro21
lurklurk Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions Any% 0:20:00 SNES USA Link fast game deserves more runners all event

FingerQuickFingerQuick Island Dash Any%? 0:05:00 PC Link epic game available from monday until end of event
Dark-AriesDark-Aries Yoshi's Cookie (SNES) VS 2:30:00 SNES USA Link It would be a VS tournament of yoshi's cookie. This game took the casual room by storm during NASA 1. The goal is to match the cookies. The person who is faster at matching cookies, and able to pull off things like chains will be the winner. The winner of this tournament will be a true yoshi's cookie speedrunner. I plan to have a snes station with only that game on where people can practice and prepare for the tournament. Would be best of 3, winners best of 5. Single elim but based on practice games prior we should be able to properly seed the contestants. everyone whenever
RazorflameRazorflame Dr. Mario Online Rx Classic 0-24 1:55:00 Wii USA Link Dr. Mario Online Rx is a great game that really ups the quality of Dr. Mario, increases the challenge factor by adding four additional levels at the end of the run, and allows for high level players to showcase some amazing moves and planning that all around makes a GREAT speed game that is entertaining for both the runner and the attendees to watch! All, with a few hours notice given.
RazorflameRazorflame Dr. Mario Online Rx Classic 0-10 0:30:00 Wii USA Link This category of Dr. Mario Online Rx has only 10 stages, which allows the runner to showcase a completely different set of skills that would otherwise not be able to be shown in the longer 0-24 category run. However, being as short as this run is, you don't get to see the runner showcase a lot of the higher level play that the later virus levels get to show you. Overall, this category is a great mixture of fast paced virus destruction, planning, and execution which provides a very entertaining run for both the runner and the attendees. All, given a few hours notice.
DaleDukkDaleDukk Super Mario Odyssey Triple Bingo 1:30:00 Switch USA Link Bingo is interesting because it relies more on quick routing and game knowledge than it does route memorization. This makes the run itself very exciting and fun to watch. Obviously my movement in the vod isn't ideal, but I do plan on practicing a lot more before the event. Imagine the run at the event looking similar, but way cleaner. Commentary would probably just be general banter, since there's not much to talk about aside from basic game mechanics and routing ideas. As you probably know, general banter with the JSRF boys means a great time for everyone. Any time during the event.
blinzerblinzer Pokémon Puzzle League Marathon 0:25:00 N64 USA Link sup bois marathon 500,000
V0oidV0oid Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest 102% 1:35:00 SNES JPN Link Because this game rolls deep. Friday/Saturday.
BiglawBiglaw Portal Glitchless 0:25:00 PC USA Link Portal is a pretty dang neat game, utilizing physics and some clever thinking to clear chambers in an efficient manner, all while not doing glitches as RNGesus intended. Also I am 69th place as of submitting this so I think that makes me the most qualified person to run this. https://i.imgur.com/YCFuUIX.png 10pm June 6th to 2pm June 8th
BiglawBiglaw Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD All Goals 0:25:00 PC USA Link This game is widely dismissed for being awful, and quite frankly, it can be sometimes. But I've gone through the hardships and difficulties in learning to master this game and it now looks somewhat presentable as a speedgame. Get all the classic THPS vibes with some of the High Definition you deserve as a viewer. same as portal
Clayton_Clayton_ Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest Any% 0:50:00 SNES USA Link DKC2 is a great game that has a lot of technical tricks and also intricate platforming. There have been some new tricks and warps that have been discovered in the last year and the overall run is a great showcase of many speedrunning techniques. Available on Friday and Saturday, preferably in the evening. No overnight times, please.
cestpatoucestpatou Streets of Rage Coop - hardest 0:35:00 PC USA Link One of the main game of the console and a very technical beat 'em up speedrun specially in coop where friendly fire is on, Streets of Rage fulfills every kids dream by allowing you to exterioriate your anger by smashing those punks on the streets!!! Could you stop the Syndicate or would you prefer to join Mr.X in his control of the city? PlamZ anytime starting on thursday
MrUppercaseTMrUppercaseT Squids Odyssey Beat the Game 1:03:00 iOS USA Link - A very unique game with easy to follow gameplay. - Playing on iOS. Probably the only mobile game in the marathon. - Experienced with marathon runs/commentary. Have participated in several live Toronto marathons, a few online, and 1 gdq run. Any day, anytime. Would prefer sometime between 8am-10pm (3am run at AGDQ was paaainful)
FingerQuickFingerQuick Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Expert Tournament (Top 8) 2:00:00 X360 Link Seeding would be done at the event throughout the week. Top 8 seeded players advance to the finals stage on stream. Tournament format would be single elimination, each match being a best of 3 with the finals match being a best of 5. Songlist would be limited to the 15 hardest songs of the on disc setlist. Each song can only be picked once by each player. Estimate is calculated for average song length being around 5 minutes with each set going to the last song. Video submission is one of the matches we recorded at AGDQ 2018. whoever signs up at the event Preferably on the last day of the event
StingrayyStingrayy Pokémon Gold/Silver Any% 1:10:00 GBA USA Link I don't think many people have seen this and it's pretty cool. Sorry no vod. All my vods were on Hitbox and you know what happened to them. Just look at another person's I guess. Probably need to play it on emulator because the glitch to break the game doesn't work if one of your pokemon doesn't have certain stats and I don't want to buy 3 copies of the game just for a backup save 0 Any time
quoquo The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap Any% 1:55:00 WiiUVC JPN Link To be fair, this game has been at the last 2 NASAs so I won't be heartbroken if it doesn't get accepted this time, but the any% route has changed a ton with a few new tricks and also I'm pretty good at the game Start of marathon to Thursday night
quoquo Pokémon Snap Any% 0:23:00 N64 JPN Link One of the most inexplicably successful n64 games, snap runs dive into the game's mechanics to control your speed, manipulate the Pokemon and get good pictures. Although snap seems like an on rails shooter, there is actually quite an amount of tech involved to speed up the game. Any% goes through all the levels, collecting 40 pictures to unlock the end and get to mew. Start of marathon till Thursday night
quoquo Pokémon Snap 100% 0:30:00 N64 JPN Link I'm a fucking God at this video game Start of marathon till Thursday night
quoquo Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nitro Tracks 0:43:00 Switch USA Link classic series and no items makes it a pretty consistent, mk8 also has a pretty decent amount of tech without being overly complex so the smaller brained individuals can also follow along Start of marathon till Thursday night
quoquo Custom Robo Arena Robo Cup 4:35:00 DS JPN Link not gonna lie the only reason I'm putting this in is cause there's one part of the game where I can make an anti-vax joke Start of marathon until Thursday night
DaleDukkDaleDukk Drakengard 3 [A] 3:00:00 PS3 USA Link It's not a very well made game but it always gives people a laugh JUST how bad it is. There's also some interesting run/lore stuff to talk about, as well as plenty of downtime for memes. Any time during the marathon
DaleDukkDaleDukk NieR: Automata [A] 2:00:00 PS4 USA Link This is a really cool speedrun to watch, since there's a lot of out of bounds and cool looking combat. I need to derust this a bit more, as my most recent serious run was about 7 months ago, but I've been derusting offline and will be streaming my practice once I finish exams. Any time during the event
MASHMASH Senran Kagura Burst ,Re:Newal Any% Hanzo mode 1:35:00 PS4 USA Link Newest speedrun in the works similar to my previous runs of Onechanbara Z2 except we play as Shinobi girls in a war between 2 schools. Lot's of silly gameplay and fun combat. Speedrun will be skipping all the funny dialog and cut scenes outside of gameplay. I do not have a video of the run uploaded yet as I'm still working on it but its not a very challenging game in terms of failure just optimization in combat/gameplay with some menuing involved. Also should mention the Exploding clothes during fights and very extensive jiggle physics.
MASHMASH Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash New Game 2:30:00 PS4 USA Link All stories run. Another Senran Kagura game also in the works but its very much like if splatoon was with water guns and the goal was a silly wet t-shirt contest with bad guys to get soaked. Should be a silly fun time I know it is for me.
MASHMASH Streets of Rage Blaze | Easy 0:35:00 XboxOne USA Link Signature game from the Genesis days. Ex cops kickin thug butt out of the streets to save the day from Mr.X Possibility of being a Coop run with Darkfox.
MASHMASH Streets of Rage Axel | Easy 0:35:00 XboxOne USA Link Signature game from the Genesis days. Ex cops kickin thug butt out of the streets to save the day from Mr.X Possibility of being a Coop run with Darkfox.
MASHMASH Streets of Rage Adam | Easy 0:35:00 XboxOne USA Link Signature game from the Genesis days. Ex cops kickin thug butt out of the streets to save the day from Mr.X Possibility of being a Coop run with Darkfox.
MASHMASH Protect Me Knight Normal 0:35:00 X360 USA Link When RPG collides with TD style game. Fun simple game with multiplayer for increased silliness. Character played TBD but most likely Amazon or Fighter since they are the fastest.
ciyonciyon Donkey Kong 64 Any% 0:40:00 N64 USA Link Cool monkey game with a lot of cool speedtricks and glitches. Would prefer to do either Any% or NLE but I can do both if needed. I plan to be there the entire marathon
ciyonciyon Donkey Kong 64 No Levels Early 2:45:00 N64 USA Link Cool monkey game with a lot of cool speedtricks and glitches. Would prefer to do either Any% or NLE but I can do both if needed. I plan to be there the entire marathon.
RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Mario All-Stars Warpless 2:30:00 SNES USA Link I have performed this run before at several NASA events and other marathons, most recently Winter Pride 2018. This would be a run of all four Warpless categories of the games on Super Mario All-Stars, one after another. I would also be willing to run each individual game if schedule time becomes a concern. Individual game estimates would be Super Mario Bros. (0:25), Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (0:30), Super Mario Bros. 2 (0:35), and Super Mario Bros. 3 (1:05). Will be there the entire week. Afternoons/evenings preferred.
RaikouRiderRaikouRider Super Mario All-Stars 100% 3:15:00 SNES USA Link I have performed this run before at several NASA events and other marathons, most recently SNES Super Stars 2018. This would be a run of the completion categories of the games on Super Mario All-Stars, one after another. The difference between Warpless and 100% is for Lost Levels, the category would be D-4 Warpless, and for Super Mario Bros. 3, the category would be 100%. I would also be willing to run each individual game if schedule time becomes a concern. Individual game estimates would be Super Mario Bros. (0:25), Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (0:50), Super Mario Bros. 2 (0:35), and Super Mario Bros. 3 (1:30). Will be there the entire week. Afternoons/evenings preferred.
LumophileLumophile King's Quest Collection I-VII 3:00:00 PC USA Link The King's Quest series of games is the pinnacle of adventure gaming and the Collection showcases over a decade of games and the evolution the genre and software underwent in that time. The run features many staples of speedrun tech that you would look for and find in any top tier speedrun such as zips, clips, and RNG manip. King's Quest was the best-selling computer game series during its time. The heptalogy of games stretches over a decade of releases and strikes that nostalgic chord for multiple generations of gamers. During KQIII there is a 13 minute wait period. If this run is being considered, please feel free to reach out to me through Discord, Twitter, etc. and discuss our possibilities regarding what we can do during that time. I plan on arriving late Thursday night and will be staying on location for the duration of the event.
JabroJabro Jet Set Radio Future 2P1C Any% 2:20:00 Xbox JPN Link With some on-the-fly routing due to miscommunication or player mistakes, mixed in with banter as a result of said mistakes, this 2 player 1 controller run will both inform and entertain viewers. Any downtime in commentary between game/strat explanations will be filled with communication between the runners, leading to a seamless commentary experience throughout the 2 hours. We believe this category for JSRF should be shown because simple any% races have gotten bland, and unlike online marathons, NASA gives us the perfect IRL opportunity to show off 2P1C. Xano Both players are currently available for the whole marathon, but if anything comes up closer to the event we will let staff know ASAP!
JabroJabro Curious George Any% 0:50:00 Xbox USA Link Adorable monkey with the ability to fly curiously embarks on a journey to the big city. Along the way he makes new friends, executes swag skips, and dabs on the haters. It's a story of love, loss, and Dole Food Company Inc. branded bananas. IGN 10/10. All the time ?
HotCoffeeHotCoffee Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Any% 1:50:00 PC USA Link Three words: Out of Bounds. HP7.1 features what may be the most impressive strats outside of the first three games in the series, and the gameplay is so dynamic that downtime is kept to an absolute minimum. HP7.1 is a game that hasn't been shown much outside of Potterthon marathons, which is a shame. It's an incredibly underrated speedrun of a broken game. I've booked the week off of work, so I'm 99.9% sure I'll be available at any time. Otherwise, if that .1% turns out, sometime in the first three days would be best.
HotCoffeeHotCoffee Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 100% 1:55:00 PC USA Link Up until about a month and a half ago, this category didn't exist. Another HP runner, Nixxoman, and I, are responsible for both it's inception and addition to the leaderboard. I routed the entire thing myself, and it's a run I'm wholly proud of. It has never been shown at a marathon before, and I'd love to have the opportunity to showcase it at NASA 2019. This run features 3 out of 4 Out of Bounds which are used in Any%, and the collectables ensure that each level is explored extensively. Like Any%, 100% is an underrated category full of energy, and more people should run it. same as previous submission
HotCoffeeHotCoffee Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green Any% with Cutscenes 0:55:00 PC USA Link I loved being able to show this at PreNASA last year, and I'd love to be able to show it again in front of a live audience. It's absolutely hilarious in all the wrong ways, and is a perfect addition to an awful games block. Or a great way to end a horror games block. I don't know. It's just so much fun to play, and it gets a lot of laughs out of people watching. same as previous submission
HotCoffeeHotCoffee Night Trap any% 0:05:00 PC USA Link for the memes same as previous submission
HotCoffeeHotCoffee Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Any% 2:25:00 PC USA Link HP5 was in a state of stagnation for a long time until earlier this year, when a resurgence of interest in the game brought new players in, who found tighter routes, and managed to bring the world record down from a 2:15 to a 2:08. While unlike any of the previous Harry Potter games, it marks a turning point in the series where the developers dropped the platforming and jumping around, and turned towards a more cinematic style of gameplay. It's a beautiful game to look at, but playing it is frustrating beyond belief. The controls are broken, the NPCs spawn in all the wrong places, and for some reason, everyone in the Hogwarts castle is pissed off at EVERYONE. However, we get to explore the entire Hogwarts castle, the entire Hogwarts grounds, Hagrid's hut, the Owlery, the Dungeons, the viaduct... you get to see pretty much the entire map. In all, HP5 is marathon-safe, has some hilarious dialogue and character design, and is just really fun to watch. In all, HP5 might have flaws, but it's marathon-safe, has some hilarious dialogue and character design, and at the end of the day, it's just a really fun game to watch. On a semi-related note, I linked my VOD of the run I did for Resortfest, as the marathon stream went down at the beginning. Here's the marathon stream, with the accompanying chatlog: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/416612629 same as previous submission
HotCoffeeHotCoffee RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 Dusty Greens: OpenRCT2% 0:05:00 PC USA Link I did Six Flags Magic Mountain last year, but that was a simple map that was over in less than a minute. Plus, the strats in Magic Mountain are unique only to that map, so outside of being super-fast, it didn't give me a chance to fully show off what RCT2 is capable of. Dusty Greens is a good map to show off the strats that we RCT2 runners use throughout the game, and is relatively short and concise as well. same as previous submission
shawneyshawney Mario Kart 64 All Cups (Skips) 0:40:00 N64 JPN Link Mario Kart 64 is a popular game and watching the tricks and skips done to this game is fun to watch friday pm 7pm-12am saturday pm 6pm-12am
BroBuzzBroBuzz Tony Hawk's Underground 2 beat the story mode 0:25:00 PC USA Link super short run packed with lots of tricks; wrong wraps, crazy jumps, mission status manipulation, and cool general movement reliant on combos. PC version is jank though, getting it settup on a stream PC might take some time but should be possible. Should be free whenever
geurgegeurge Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse Any% 0:50:00 PC USA Link Loads of new skips and a lot more consistent than last year, and I should be more awake for better commentary as well Whole event

GlanGlan The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 100% All Heart Pieces 1:25:00 SNES JPN Link A Link to the Past is one of the most popular speedgames out there. Despite the most popular category of the game being No Major Glitches, the game has an immensely deep set of major glitches that allow you to move around the game in completely unintended ways and complete the game content in almost any order you want. The glitched categories of ALttP are amazing in showing off all the powerful, cool, and truly bizarre glitches in the game. Among them, 100% All Heart Pieces is especially good for showing off some unique tech which is used to get the items which are skipped in other categories, but must be collected for 100% (e.g. the heart pieces). I will only be available to run on Friday and Saturday (June 7-8).
GandairGandair Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Any% NG+ 1:10:00 PC Link The diablo franchise is well known and many people have heard of it if they have not played it. With recent announcement of a new Diablo game at Blizzcon and the rerelease of Diablo 1 and 2 on GoG it is a game which has been in people's minds in the past year more than years prior. Monk character class movement tech is the fastest movement tech in the game and Monk is the class which can beat the game the fastest. Watching a Monk run is to find the answer to the question of "How fast can you... go?" and the answer is frighteningly fast. Don't put me on Wednesday between 9pm and midnight as there is a beer review podcast I will be calling in to that day as a guest. Put me on at any other time which is convenient for you.
GandairGandair Frostpunk 0:50:00 PC Link Frostpunk is a city builder survival game known to be difficult which many people have struggled to complete. It attracts people who are into city building games and is a style of game not often showcased. Fans of the genre always seem excited to see games of this style featured. It is a fairly new game that to my knowledge has not been showcased in an online event so far. It is well received online for it's quality and is considered a bright example of indie developer success. I will play through the game attempting to complete it with no deaths. Completing the game without deaths takes an extra layer of city management as the game's harsh winter weather and divided social environment create many situations where people may die without proper planning. Don't put me on Wednesday between 9pm and Midnight as I will be calling in to a beer review show as a guest during that time. Put me on at whatever other time suits you best.
RaikouRiderRaikouRider EarthBound Ancient Cave (No Skips) 2:20:00 SNES USA Link I have run Earthbound at the first NASA and would like to showcase this Ancient Cave-style randomizer. All of the entrances in the game have been shuffled to create a procedurally-generated maze with 9 floors that is different every time you play. The enemies get stronger as you go, but the loot also gets better. The goal is to reach the end of the 9th floor with the necessary equipment to survive the Giygas fight. With all story sequences cut as well as instant text, this is less than half the length of a glitchless speedrun of the vanilla game, and shuffled PSI powers make the runner change up strategies. Available all week. Afternoons/evenings preferred.

stumpstump Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back Any% (No Game Over Abuse) 0:50:00 PS2 EUR Link Let's have one of the PlayStation's mascots back, but with the game's main any% category this time. I'm well in practice on this one due to some recent marathon runs of it. Full event
stumpstump Crash Bandicoot Any% 0:58:00 PS2 USA Link Alternatively, there's where the series all began, and all of the jumping, spinning, zigzagging action throughout. Full event
stumpstump Super Metroid GT Classic 0:50:00 SNES USA Link This category visits the game's last miniboss early to invoke a debug code that gives almost all major items and plenty of ammo, then steamrolls the rest of the game using some techniques otherwise only seen in randomizers. Full event
stumpstump Super Metroid 100% 1:35:00 SNES USA Link Full completion of a speedrunning classic. Full event
nucularnucular Squidlit All Bosses 0:10:00 PC USA Link It's a fairly new game (from 2018) designed to be compatible with the original Game Boy hardware, and to be similar to games from that era, so the strats and glitches in this game are fairly similar to the ones that one would expect a Game Boy game to have, which makes it fit well with older games that are frequently run at events, while having never been seen at such an event before. Any time during the event
stumpstump Super Metroid Category Extensions All Miniboss RTA 0:38:00 SNES USA Link A different twist on the game, this category beats all minibosses without caring about main bosses, resulting in an unusual route. (Note that the animals are not reached in this category.) Full event

EnasperEnasper Chantelise Any% 1:00:00 PC USA Link It's a 2D sprite in a 3D environment that people like to compare to Dark Souls. Running around with less than half the expect HP makes Any% is a much riskier category than All Treasures. Most likely all week.
EnasperEnasper Chantelise All Hidden Treasures 1:30:00 PC USA Link It's a 2D sprite in a 3D environment that people like to compare to Dark Souls. All Treasure is a more marathon safe fun. Most likely all week.
EnasperEnasper Ragnarok Battle Offline One Player, F-Thief 1:30:00 PC JPN Link One player Female Thief (F-Thief). It's a more interesting category to watch than the faster category F-Sword. We incorporate several class specific skill mechanics and use stat distribution to open up move sets that add variation to our playstyle. Most likely all week.
EnasperEnasper Proxy Blade Zero Easy 0:30:00 PC USA Link Possible run in grey-scale as a throwback to Speedkino. Most likely all week.
RaikouRiderRaikouRider Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! 103% 2:10:00 SNES USA Link I ran this at NASA 2017 and tons of new strategies have been discovered since then. Would prefer this to only be used if we need submissions to fill the event. Main submissions are still SM/ALTTP crossover and Mario. Available all week. Would prefer afternoon/evening but can be flexible.

AKC12AKC12 F-Zero GX Unleashed All Tracks Time Attack Mode 1:15:00 Wii USA Link It's a visually cool, fast looking game with a lot of tech that let's you go faster. Many of the tracks have impressive looking skips, and fast but risky sections. In this mod in particular all of the machines are fast so I will aim to use a wide variety of machines. Monday afternoon until end of event. Will likely be going to Wonderland or whatever trip Naegleria plans on going to
