Name an AGDQ race level! Donations for the 32-character name for one of the levels that will be played during the race. The name will forever be immortalized on Nintendo's servers so it must be reasonably appropriate.
Save or Kill the Yoshis. We'll have a yoshi (or cage full of many yoshis) at the end of one of the levels, and the players must either save them or dump them in the lava depending on which goal is met.
Mirror's Edge is very much a game designed to be seen in 1st person and ONLY first person, and as such many of the in-chapter cutscenes look hilariously awful when forced into the 3rd person perspective. All cutscenes in the game are normally skipped, but are easily accessible through the chapter select menu. A selection of the best 3rd person cutscenes can be shown after the run, and the number can be adjusted depending on the amount of time available. The run itself would not change at all.
Does Luigi get to come to the party? Every run, Luigi gets to relax at home while Mario saves the day. Through a glitch/skip Mario can leave Luigi at home at the very end of the run when Mario heads to the party after he beats Bowser. Does he still deserve to party with Mario?
Mario gets a kiss from his secret love. Mario normally receives a kiss from bombette in Chapter 7 for guessing who the real bombette is. Through a glitch, I can change who kisses mario, which will be kooper since it looks the best.
Save Block Storage Glitch demonstration after the run (possibly with Stryder7x). Paper Mario has some great glitches used in runs but even crazier glitches that are not very useful in runs, and this glitch is one of the best. Through the use of save block storage, the game state gets extremely distorted, preventing Mario from getting into encounters but more importantly storing actions such as using springs and pulleys. Once a few springs and pulleys are stored, the glitch can be cancelled, flinging Mario in a hilarious way, and ends with a softlock.
Glitch exhibition. Secret of Mana is a well known game with a pretty ridiculous amount of whacky glitches and weirdness that can happen. I aim to show off as many weird and random things within 5 minutes as possible.
Pick player 2's character:
Don vs. Mike vs. Leo.
Don is the fastest (no time added to estimate)
Mike is 3 frames easier on glitch execution that the other two.
Leo is a train wreck as usual, hardest to execute with and slowest.
Amongst Diablo runners it is common to edit adria's sound file. This adds no impact to the game other than potential comedic humor. Sound files are on average between 1-2 seconds in length, with the longer being cut off. Takes about ~5min to set up, can be done during Diablo setup.
Examples of Audio files:
"Abandon your foolish quest" (Diablo)
All Diablo players remember the butcher, and the horrors he forced them through.
The butcher has a 2/3 chance of spawning, if he spawns I will be forced to kill him. Simple kill, no real time loss other than the ~1min to find him.
The 100% category has the added advantage of both the Fierce Deity Mask from collecting all the masks in the game and an exceedingly large amount of health thanks to 20 hearts with the double defense upgrade by the time it reaches the end of the game. This makes the final boss fight a pushover typically, requiring very little effort and ending very quickly. And thanks to the Fierce Deity Mask's beams it fires from its sword, hitting the boss blind is not a problem. For this reason, ending the co-op run with all 4 players coordinating together on one controller while blindfolded is not only safe, but would be an appropriate and hilarious way to do so.
8 character filename that appears a few times throughout the run and in the credits.
Note: In this category there is some information we need about the file in advance that is generated randomly at file creation, so we would need the bidding for this incentive to be cut off at the beginning of ZFG's run preceding ours to make sure we have that information in time for the run.
Filenames can contain A-Z lowercase and uppercase, 0-9, . and -
Trained Opera Singer Xem sings during Marcadia Mission 4
Pick one of five songs you would like Xem to sing. The song with the most bids will be sung.
Thinkin Bout You by Frank Ocean
Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran
Everybody Talks by Neon Trees
Mein Sehnen Mein Waehnen by Erich Wolfgang Korngold
Mother I'm Here by Darren Kobb
The incentive would be to complete the Beta version of Sunset Vista. In 2014 we had an incentive for Stormy Accent, a level that was removed from the final version of the game due to its excess difficulty. Crash Bandicoot was nerfed heavily during development for this same reason, but there is a prototype version that has level layouts that are considerably harder than anything that made it into the final game. Sunset Vista is one the hardest levels in the game and is even harder in the prototype, which is why I selected it as the incentive.
Also we will port the level into the final version of the game so that there will be music, proper physics, and what not. This doesn't really change anything besides make it more pleasant to watch.
There is a historical heated debate between which is better in Pokemon - the Dome Fossil or the Helix Fossil. During Brain Age, we will draw either a Dome Fossil or a Helix Fossil based on the results of the bid war.
Difficulty in execution: TASBot does not find this difficult.
Consistency: TASBot is perfect. Everything he does is perfect. (Until it isn't perfect that is, and that's when things tend to go *really* sideways, but he's got this one.)
Restrictions: Dome Fossil or Helix Fossil only, please. Unless, of course, it's GDQMonitor. TASBot has standards, after all.
DS Firmware player name.
During the Brain Age run, we will be running through the first time setup and we have an opportunity to select the name associated with the DS. The name will be displayed on a couple of screens during setup and prior to launching the game.
Limit 10 characters.
Twitch Helps Play...
We can't tell you *what* Twitch will be able to help play, but if this donation incentive is accepted and met we will replace "static" content with "dynamic" content influenced by the things Twitch Chat says.
