Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike Among the Rogue Squadron franchise this is the cringiest game; even though all 3 were good. they decided to add Driving AT-ST, speeder bikes, and actual grounded assaults. the story splits itself to Luke's and Wedge's stories. it introduces new mechanics and a whole load of messes and glitches in this game. Its a short run however but its still something to explore. I have done Luke's side off stream but It might not make the incentive Idea unless B_mac_64 is running this. Status: Pending

Metroid Prime Metroid Prime is an execution-heavy speed game consisting of smooth movement tech and flashy tricks. On everybody's list of childhood favorites, this game's speedrun will not fail to disappoint even the casual viewers. In this run, I will be collecting all of the items as fast as possible. This route features different out of bounds sections than the Any% route, and is generally safe except for one trick near the end of the run. A safety save makes this trick marathon safe, however.

Hammerin' Harry Hammerin' Harry is rare and little known in the west as it was only released in Europe and Japan. It is a colorful game with a wide variety of well designed sprites. I am planning a pun-riddled script based on its theme.

The game has 3 trivial bonus stages which will provide 1 minute and 30 seconds for donations in this ~8 minute run.

It allows for practically non-stop movement which leads to a high paced, action-packed run. There are several backups in the event that I make an error.

Luigi's Mansion This Luigi's Mansion speedrun is a fast paced, quick thinking, ghost catching game. The run consists of completing/catching the bare minimum of objectives/ghosts in the game to beat it as fast as possible. Every room in the mansion entails a challenge to a runner, as much of the game is heavily RNG dependent. However, the thrill of finding boos, defeating bosses speedily and rescuing Mario from King Boo is sure to make this a satisfying run to watch.

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition Most of the game's 11 skills are movement abilities. This means that runs will start off with simple, easy to follow movement, which will gradually get faster and crazier until the end of the run. We visit a good portion of the map, and don't use out of bounds tricks.

I would like to see a 4-way race for this run. It would be a good game to have a race for because of the increase in movement options as the run progresses, making it more exciting towards the end of the race.

Ninja Gaiden (Sega Master System) A wholly unique game that takes a lot of cues from the NES Ninja Gaiden trilogy while having its own identity. This game also features several unique mechanics in a radically changed wall jump, damage boost, and sword hitbox. Ability usage in this run gets very interesting because there's a glitch to give yourself infinite ninpo so you can use your abilities very heavily. The invincible fire wheel doesn't take the spotlight however because other abilities end up being faster to use on bosses. Status: Pending

Mega Man 3 This category gives the Mega Man 3 speedrun an entirely different spin by adding an extreme degree of difficulty and making most boss fights an exercise in precision and technique. The low amount of invincibility frames of bosses compared with the difficulty of the fights makes them feel very fast-paced and active. Boss patterns/strategy, health management, dynamic stage/refight order and even strategically planning for potential deaths are interesting talking points of the run. Status: Pending

The Three Stooges This game has been around in one form or another for decades, appearing on a myriad of platforms, such as the NES, C64, and even PlayStation. Some people love it, but most believe that it has not aged well. The GBA port (only available as a rental) is especially poorly-optimized, allowing the runner to skip normally-unskippable cutscenes. It is a high-risk speedrun, heavily dependent on luck and reaction time. Due to this, a normal run may take anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes. Status: Pending

Party Hard Party Hard is a 2-D indie stealth strategy game that, in some backwards way, your objective is to clean the city up by clearing all enemies off the screen. The run requires quick reaction skills, as well as intricate AI knowledge. The run also includes a large amount of AI abuse and environment abuse. The coop run with Jovo includes a lot more AI abuse which isn't possible in single player, making it a more fast paced run.

Turbo Racer is an old Disney flash game where the goal of the game is to collect as many points from collecting good thought bubbles, dodging the negative ones and mulitple other obstacles. However in the speedrun we just beat each level as fast as possible and disregard our total points. Dodging the fences, pylons and oil spills saves lots of time as well as collecting speed boosts.

Ribbit King Ribbit King is a silly game that found it's way out of Japan. In this game you play frog golf, the top interplanetary game. In "All Courses" you play through 4 holes on each of the worlds, using tricks, tools, and quick thinking to do so as fast as possible. Which hole layout you get for each level is random, making a lot of use out of improvisation and game knowledge. This being said, even terrible RNG is very recoverable, only costing time, not the run itself. Opting for a race with Spiffiey. Status: Pending

Rabi-Ribi A bullet-hell metroidvania featuring bunnies. Join Erina as she hops, slides, and dashes across the world to beat up people with a hammer! Normal difficulty makes bosses more dangerous (and fun to dodge) than lower difficulties, while being safer and less time-consuming than the higher modes. Routing picks the 10 fastest of the 16 available bosses to unlock the final area, gaining faster movement items as the run progresses. Good luck bunny! Status: Pending

Run involves mostly fight optimizations with a few movement tricks occasionally. We use all the combat tools at our disposal including: combos, magic, summons, drives, items, and limits. High variation of fight strategies and generally a fast paced run. There will be some down time for donations and incentives.

Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando APB is, in my opinion, the most consistently entertaining category I've ever played. Every planet has some sort of wild glitch, the movement is well balanced due to getting the charge boots (the super fast gadget that allows crazy jumps and flips) exactly halfway through the run, the run gets progressively harder and more chaotic as you progress, and you literally turn all the bosses you fight into sheep. There's constant action in this category, and would make for a true showstopper. Status: Pending

Plok Red and yellow Rayman fights his way through a flea infested island collecting shells, turning into a sawblade, getting game overs on purpose to skip levels, and punching fleas until they let you leave the area. Sometimes you punch fruit instead, which requires you to operate vehicles that control as if you were fall-down drunk, in exchange for skipping a bunch of levels. Sometimes you're forced to operate these vehicles anyway. Then everyone takes a nap. Aesthetically and aurally pleasing game. Status: Pending

Silent Hills P.T. Thanks to a recent door glitch that helps skip all the slowest segments of the game (without losing the awesome jumpscare) I've been able to set WRs in all 4 speedrun categories available.
As for PT itself, it should generate a ton of interest when people see that it's on the schedule as it's a rare game that you can now only play if you downloaded it before it was pulled off line. The glitches make this an entertaining yet short addition to a spooky block or any part of the marathon really.

This year we will show off new tricks (and glitches), a much higher player skill level from many of the game's best players, and levels that show the great creativity of the community. Expect fewer deaths, even more impressive levels, and most importantly, a fun and intense race! We anticipate this to be the best blind race event yet Status: Pending

Silent Hill: Homecoming Homecoming is the only Silent Hill game with major sequence breaks, executed via wall-melting OOB clips. This has made it the shortest, most condensed any% Silent Hill series speedrun, consisting of about 50% glitches, 50% West Coast-grade swag. "All Bosses" includes all major areas, all the super cool bosses, and every mind-bending glitch in the catalog. Deadrobots/Starwin and I are also offering a race, would would be a Silent Hill first at a GDQ.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time This run is not very impressive by its movement, but the boss fights are sure to amaze. Entering every boss at such a low level makes using infinite items with really hard timing interesting to watch. People are always excited when a boss is being fought and are even more excited when you beat them. With a few glitches spread over 10 boss fights it is a run that is definitely interesting to watch.

A Bingo Lockout is two players fighting for the same goals on a bingo board; first to get an item claims that square. At the end of 3 hours the most squares wins! This format creates plenty of hilarious and unique situations the players are put in, which results in creative trick solutions and intense battles over the items on the board.

Refunct Since being featured in AGDQ 2017, Refunct has been broken wide open thanks to the discovery of a new glitch. This glitch saves upwards of 20 seconds in the route, making an already short speedrun, even shorter.

Low% is turning the least amount of tiles green as possible, which involves some very difficult and precise platforming. This category is so hard that the majority of runners can't even finish a run, but I hope to bring this run to the marathon stage and show off how cool it is.

Quick man shines with the fastest movement in the stages, but every robot gets to showcase their strengths. With fast, fun gameplay, and the greatest final boss sequence ever featured in a video game, this game is perfect for those looking for a different take on the classic mega man formula.

Golden Sun: The Lost Age Arguably the best entry in an RPG series loved by many. One of the game’s main features is the Djinn system that brings a large variety of battle effects, summons and character classes. Speedrun-wise there’s some sexy menus and mostly reactionary gameplay, with instances of minor and major RNG manipulation to get past the biggest hurdles. To top it off, the run also offers wrong warps, (blind) out of bounds movement and many other glitches. Status: Pending

Sonic Heroes Sonic Heroes is a rather unique 3D Sonic game featuring the team mechanic. Not only does it allow you to switch between the 3 formations of speed, power and flight on the fly, but the vast majority of moves also interact with your AI Teammates. These interactions and rapid formation changes give the game a wide variety of movement tech and glitches which every team applies differently, making this a vastly different run from Team Rose at AGDQ2015.

I use the UltraRacer, which is a wacky controller designed for racing games. Whenever this controller is used, your car is able to turn significantly better. Using this controller saves about thirty seconds over the course of the run.
