Sadly the only English copy of Mother 3 is Miyamoto's last Horcrux, so it will never be released. Oh well. Here's to a fantastic run of Earthbound and 2 million! Fuzzy pickles!
07/07/2017 03:52:29 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Hey all! Been watching GDQ for FIVE years now! Have donated every time but haven't heard my donations read off in two and a half years. One middle of the night SGDQ run several years back I carried on a conversation with the reader over the course of several donations on how to pronounce Médecins Sans Frontières. These days you can't do that. It's amazing to see how the event has grown so enormously even though it is disappointing not to have my comments read anymore. Congratulations on an amazing event, everybody! I'm so proud.

01/11/2017 00:15:49 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Cancer took my grandmother before I was even born. I wish a foundation like this had been around like this and that I had gotten a chance to meet her. Donating so that in the future nobody has to say they never met their grandma. Good luck to all the runners!
01/10/2017 00:40:40 +0000 $15.00 Yes
Many a day has been whiled away in my quest to catch 'em all. I've been journeying since 1998 but I've never done it quite like this. Loving this run of one of my favorite games and shoutouts to everyone behind the scenes keeping this thing running!
01/09/2017 11:43:59 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I've watched every GDQ since AGDQ 2012 - I can't believe how successful these little marathons have become! Here's to many more years and let's save even more frames and kill those animals!
01/09/2017 01:49:16 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Hype for that Super Mario Race! Funds are tight this year but here is the first donation of hopefully several more.

Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are two of my favorite games of all time, so I'm so excited to see you guys break them to pieces. AGDQ gets better every year and this is the best Zelda block yet. Good luck to the runners and $700,000 HYYYYPE
01/08/2016 05:02:05 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I was mad at my dad for leaving the dishes to congeal into a sentient being in the sink until I watched this marathon and remembered how happy I was that he's a survivor of colon cancer. So I took a few minutes to go downstairs to give him a hug and tell him I love him. Hope you don't mind. Keep up the good work and thanks for a great marathon.
01/07/2016 01:24:50 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Have to donate for this EPIC battle of skills. Not since the recent Nintendo World Championships has speedrunning Mario been so tense. Let's do this every GDQ from now on!
01/06/2016 21:38:15 +0000 $10.00 Yes
DK is love, DK is life.

08/01/2015 06:01:16 +0000 $20.00 Yes
I was in a car accident earlier today and have basically had a terrible day. I am so glad I can come home and see one of my favorite childhood games broken to pieces. All I could ever do as a kid was dupe Master Balls and find Missingno. This makes that look like perfect programming. Thanks for cheering me up!
07/31/2015 03:34:10 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Ocarina of Time is my favorite game and I always love to see it broken by the speedrunners at Games Done Quick! Shoutouts to the awesome tech team and kill those animals!
07/30/2015 06:47:05 +0000 $5.00 Yes

07/30/2015 02:01:30 +0000 $15.00 Yes
Missed the Earthbound run but I can't wait to see what happens for the rest of the night, especially Silly Games Done Quick. It will help me feel better as I fight this sinus infection. You know what else will help me feel better? Killing all the animals.
07/28/2015 02:43:34 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Shoutout to the techies who are keeping things running behind the scenes! You guys are awesome and deserve recognition. Thanks for all you do to keep the event running smoothly!

07/26/2015 20:47:33 +0000 $20.00 Yes
I didn't know we were starting right out with the Awful Games block. Just kidding. I love seeing this game destroyed. I can't wait for the rest of the marathon either. Good luck guys and let's raise a ton of money for charity!
01/11/2015 06:14:25 +0000 $30.00 Yes
$15 to OoT being the best Zelda, and $15 to Four Swords being the worst. Now one million HYPE!

At every GDQ I've seen, we've killed the animals. Why not save them for once?

What is this madness?
01/10/2015 18:25:34 +0000 $25.00 Yes
I wasn't feeling very well yesterday so let's start today off with (for me) a big donation to make up for it! Loving these runs! Keep it up! One million hype!
01/08/2015 23:34:18 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I had no idea you could even speedrun Animal Crossing! Now I get to watch a race of Yoshi's Island, one of the best looking games on the SNES. Keep the great runs coming guys, and kick cancer's ass!
01/07/2015 02:36:22 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Loving the speedruns! Keep it up!

Kick cancer's ass! Good luck on all the games.
01/06/2015 23:10:23 +0000 $15.00 Yes
My dad beat colon cancer a few years ago. I've watched AGDQ ever since and I'm always grateful for all you do. Thank you so much to everybody who donates, even if it's only a little bit. Together as a community we can do anything.
06/28/2014 23:31:07 +0000 $25.00 Yes
So hype for the Zelda block and so proud for all this marathon has accomplished. This is my last donation and this makes $150 I have given. It's really amazing to see gamers come together time after time for such great causes. Give yourselves a hand.
06/28/2014 00:33:50 +0000 $25.00 Yes
New Legend of Korra AND SGDQ Mario block? Heck yeah! What a great night!
06/27/2014 03:22:49 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I think the room is starting to fall asleep, so I will donate $20 if at least one person can sing one verse of the DK Rap from DK 64. Go!
06/27/2014 00:42:57 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Excited to see a run of Skyward Sword. I never beat this game for some reason, so I guess I'll just have to settle for seeing it broken instead.
06/26/2014 14:09:46 +0000 $15.00 Yes
Glad I was able to wake up for the Mario block! This $15 donation marks $1000 donated by me since I discovered you guys since AGDQ 2013. Keep playing games really fast for awesome causes and I'll keep donating.
06/24/2014 16:06:27 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Just heard my last donation read on stream and was surprised my last name was pronounced correctly. $10 to reader's choice!
06/24/2014 15:53:09 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Congrats on raising so much money already! This is my fourth donation and I hope to donate more. Good luck with the marathon.
06/23/2014 06:59:14 +0000 $5.00 Yes
$5 for a great game and a reader with an adorable voice. Your "thank yous" are really making me smile at three am when I should be sleeping. Put this to reader's choice.
06/23/2014 04:02:26 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Second donation of the night! Love finally seeing Banjo Tooie in a Games Done Quick marathon. Can I get a "Wooooo!"?
06/22/2014 23:47:53 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Hey all at SGDQ! Glad it's that time of year again! Here's my first of hopefully many donations. Loving the marathon so far and good luck getting $1 million.
01/12/2014 03:43:48 +0000 $50.00 Yes
My 24th and final donation of the marathon, this brings me up to $450. I've never donated this much for any of your marathons before. It's amazing to be part of something so huge. I was only going to donate $25 for this last donation but then a donation earlier inspired me to think of the people who couldn't afford to donate, so the extra $25 is for them. Don't worry guys, we've all got you covered - we'll kick cancer's butt together.

Put this toward Reader's Choice if something comes up to donate toward.
01/12/2014 00:29:52 +0000 $45.00 Yes
Which video game character is a member of D.A.R.E? Link - he HATES pot!

Good luck Cosmo! Hopefully my terrible joke doesn't throw you off your run. :D
01/11/2014 22:42:53 +0000 $30.00 Yes
When I found out they were coming out with an HD version of Windwaker, my first thought wasn't, "All right, an updated version of one of my favorite games of all time!" but "Oh no, I wonder what this will do to Cosmo's speedruns!" Obviously I have my priorities straight. And now I can see for myself. Good luck Cosmo!

Donation does to Cosmo's choice.
01/11/2014 21:13:45 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Hey guys! This is my 21st donation for a total of $325 so far, and we're not done yet. Dare I say, let's-a go? How about let's -a donate?

This finale is going to be awesome! Keep it up guys! My tracker tickers says you just hit $700K and I bet you can hit $800K!
01/11/2014 05:40:05 +0000 $25.00 Yes
The way we're all coming together for a single cause warms my heart. That cause is, obviously, killing the animals!

(I can't believe this bid war has raised so much!)
01/11/2014 00:49:30 +0000 $15.00 Yes
What rock group has four guys that don't sing?
Mount Rushmore.

The mask made me send this! Good luck ZFG. :D
01/10/2014 23:53:02 +0000 $30.00 Yes
Getting my donation in before the person wearing the Majora's Mask destroys the world. He is telling me I must kill the animals. Uh-oh, the power of the mask is leeching out into the world!
01/10/2014 18:44:07 +0000 $20.00 Yes
I was so excited for Pokemon! Unfortunately, gotta sleep 'em all! Oh well, I can always watch it later when it goes up on Youtube, in the meantime good luck!
01/10/2014 08:36:30 +0000 $30.00 Yes
I am never going to be able to sleep at the right time again. Congrats at almost being at $475K!
01/10/2014 00:54:53 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Have been waiting for this all marathon! AoE II was one of my favorite games as a kid. (I even successfully used the campaigns to write history reports... shh!) Let's make cancer history!

My dad was diagnosed with colon cancer back in late 2011 but was saved because of early detection. I know it sounds like a hassle and a really unfun time, but get your colonoscopies, people - they are lame but cancer is even more lame and one saved my dad's life. Until the day cancer is gone forever, remember to take care of yourself. Congrats on the 400K.
01/09/2014 12:38:38 +0000 $5.00 Yes
E.T. time! You have no idea how excited I am! The worst game of all time for one of the best causes of all time. :D Go get 'em!
01/09/2014 10:43:44 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I've donated so much I'm running out of witty comments to say. I don't think it helps that I've been up for over 18 hours straight watching you guys. Still, I'm sure some of you are even more sleep deprived. Oh well, what's a little sleep when we're up against cancer? Awesome job guys! Let's keep kicking cancer's butt!
01/09/2014 09:09:30 +0000 $30.00 Yes
Wow, good job to the reader! You just pronounced my last name like a champ. Here's $30 to Reader's Choice.
01/09/2014 08:59:20 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Ah, Awful Games Done Quick. Sleep is for the weak, and so are good games. Good luck to the runners, and Godspeed.
01/09/2014 02:34:49 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Totally blown away by this Diddy Kong Racing Run. You guys must be getting tons of donations, so this goes to the choice of whoever screened this donation! You guys deserve mad props. Can I get a round of applause for the people screening donation comments?
01/08/2014 21:50:32 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Congrats on $300K! This block got me to wake up on not enough sleep because I've been watching all week, but I'm sure most of you have had even less. Shoutouts to everyone who needs sleep already, and still has days to go.
01/08/2014 12:17:13 +0000 $10.00 Yes
OK, now I really am going to bed... after Star Wars. I swear. Really. Shoutouts to all the people off camera who keep this marathon up and running!
01/08/2014 11:47:07 +0000 $10.00 Yes
The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised... or at least extremely tired. Congrats on raising more than half of your target already, and I'll be back as fast as I can! $10 for the worst/best rendition of the Space Jam song ever, and for making me sing along just as terribly/awesomely.
01/08/2014 05:47:42 +0000 $10.00 Yes
My third donation in the Zelda block alone. Congrats on $250K, I think $500K is gonna be too low! Keep up the good work.
01/08/2014 03:46:38 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Hey guys! Link's Awakening was one of my favorite games as a kid and it's still my second favorite Zelda game and my favorite Game Boy game ever. Thanks for including it and here's $20 more for a great cause! I have so many great memories of this game. Let's help other people make happy memories too by kicking cancer's butt.
01/08/2014 02:00:34 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Freezing my butt off tonight (and last night) but you guys have kept me warm with all the warm fuzzies this marathon has generated.

My dad had cancer a few years ago but he is OK now thanks to early detection. I have been donating throughout this marathon and also last year's in hopes that more people's stories turn out like my dad's.
01/07/2014 22:57:48 +0000 $15.00 Yes
You guys are doing great so far! Excited for the Mario block and the Zelda block! Keep your eyes out for more donations by me. Let's kick cancer's butt really really fast together!
01/06/2014 03:50:15 +0000 $5.00 Yes
I don't know when I'm gonna sleep! Why do you do this to me? Oh well, saving lives > sleep. Keep up the good work guys! Awesome first day already!
01/06/2014 00:18:45 +0000 $5.00 Yes
I always love your marathons. Congrats on $1 million total last time, and I hope we can smash that $500K for cancer! Together the gaming community can do anything.

(Can't believe you have Age of Empires this year! I played that like crazy as a kid! Also can't wait for Cosmo. :D)
07/30/2013 05:25:12 +0000 $5.00 Yes
$5 because I went away for two seconds to put a glass in the sink and suddenly you guys were singing Oh, Canada.

Can I get someone on the couch to say, "Hyah!" like Link?
07/30/2013 02:57:40 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Hey, I noticed my $10 from last night for "Kill the Animals as Best Final Fantasy" was never added to the list. (The donation was read aloud during Mario 64.) If I donate $20 more will you please add it in? One of the choices on the list only has one cent.
07/29/2013 04:32:56 +0000 $10.00 Yes
After that Super Metroid run, gonna have to put this $10 towards Kill the Animals as Best Final Fantasy. Keep kill the animals alive! Wait...

Good luck in the Mario block, hope I can stay awake!
07/28/2013 19:15:07 +0000 $10.00 Yes
I'm running out of clever donation comments. Proud to see we've reached over $120K! I'm assuming BlueGlass will be watching when this is read, can he wave, or lean in and wave if he is off camera?
07/28/2013 16:36:01 +0000 $5.00 Yes
I blinked and missed the Bible Adventures run. Seriously. I went away for TWO MINUTES, and that was the run. Glad I can still get on that Baby Moses perler.
07/28/2013 02:13:29 +0000 $20.00 Yes
While I got up to watch Paper Mario, I am so glad I caught all of Pilotwings 64! It was my favorite run so far. The WR was wonderful and the present was so heartwarming! :3 Seriously guys, what is with all these WRs, no wonder you are so far ahead of schedule.

Continuing to put my money on the Ryan Davis Dark Souls file name, but put $5 of this on wearing the hat!
07/27/2013 19:00:23 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Loving the Zelda block even though I am super sick with a stomach bug. Also super hyped for later games. Sleep heals you when you're sick? Bah! Video games are better, and maybe some of these doctors I keep hearing about can come heal me instead. :)
07/27/2013 08:29:57 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Hope this counts during Diddy Kong Racing, because that WR was amazing! I kept getting the message "Server done blowed up" on the donation page.

Put this toward naming the Dark Souls file name Ryan Davis.
07/27/2013 05:57:37 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Actually, Médecins is closer to

Med - sehn (sahn frohn tee air)

Sorry!

Here's $5 more to Reader's Choice for my faux pas!
07/27/2013 05:48:57 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Hey guys! I studied French for five years in high school and got my BA in French, so here's my attempt at a pronunciation guide for you:

Meh-day-sehn sahn frohn-tee-air

All French words put the accent on the final syllable! Hopefully that helps a little.

Put this $5 where ever whoever tried to say Médecins Sans Frontières wants it!
07/26/2013 19:58:51 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Have we got a Troll the Animals in Super Metroid donation incentive yet? If not I'd like to kick that off. That's where you look like you'll save them but then you don't.
07/26/2013 19:05:41 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Here's $5 for where ever BlueGlass wants it. I woke up specifically just for him! Dat laugh.
07/26/2013 07:43:57 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Ten more to Kabuki for actually pronouncing my last name right. You are the first reader to ever do so, and I donated over $300 last marathon. You probably won't get it again, but you got it right once, and that's what counts.
07/26/2013 07:03:27 +0000 $20.00 Yes
Hey guys, just got here so I have no idea what the prizes or incentives are. Put this where it's most needed. I just bought two shirts! I was blown away by AGDQ this year so I'm very excited for SGDQ. Your new donation page is very fancy.
01/12/2013 19:28:29 +0000 $40.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns - it's two syllables. "Au" sounds like "ow.") This is my last donation and brings me to a solid $300. Let's hit 400K, people! This amazing marathon deserves an amazing ending. Please put this toward reveal Mirrod's choice. I donated for it earlier, good sir! I must know.
01/12/2013 11:55:40 +0000 $50.00 Yes
Anyway just want to say keep up the good work! This makes $260 from me. I never thought I would donate so much! Mirrord's Choice Mirrord's Choice Mirrord's Choice
01/12/2013 11:34:59 +0000 $30.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns - it's two syllables. "Au" sounds like "ow.") Hey! I woke up special on four hours of sleep just for Pokemon! With this donation I have donated $240. Wow! Keep up the good work. Since I've been asleep I have no idea what challenges/choices haven't been met. So let the runner decide where this goes. Thanks for running such an amazing marathon for such an uplifting cause.
01/12/2013 01:09:52 +0000 $15.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns - it's two syllables. "Au" sounds like "ow.") Shoutouts to Puwexil for helping me with my glitched $30 donation. Let him put this one where he wants.
01/11/2013 21:40:13 +0000 $30.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns - it's two syllables. Au sounds like "ow.") Zelda is my favorite series of all time. Been waiting all week for this block. Very excited, and great work so far guys! I cannot believe how much money has rolled in! Put this toward Die Harderererer or Zelda Glitches if that has been met.
01/11/2013 16:48:17 +0000 $30.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns - it's two syllables. Au sounds like "ow.") Hey, this is my tenth donation and I have no idea anymore. Let Spike decide where it goes.
01/10/2013 10:07:19 +0000 $20.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns, two syllables.) Hey! I set my alarm so I could donate on that belt. And I belt Takeru Impulse isn't even up either. Let Takeru decide where to put this. Good luck!
01/10/2013 05:52:51 +0000 $5.00 Yes
Augst-kalns again! I typo'd in my last comment, I only donated $110, not $115, so here is $5 to make me not a liar. Put it toward THE BOX. (You didn't get it right, you did three syllables, not two. That's the most common mispronunciation so don't feel bad!)
01/10/2013 05:45:57 +0000 $15.00 Yes
This is my 7th donation for a total now of $115 and no reader has quite got my name right, so I want to see if you can. Two syllables: Augst-kalns. Au = ow. Put this toward OoT any%! Thanks! :D
01/09/2013 18:27:58 +0000 $10.00 Yes
Two syllables: Augst-kalns. My power was out for several hours but it's back now! Put this toward any% OoT.
01/08/2013 23:44:53 +0000 $20.00 Yes
(Two syllables: Augst-kalns. It's Latvian!)

Another day, another donation. Thank you guys so much for providing such great entertainment and championing such a wonderful cause.

I want to share with you the first thing my dad said after he had surgery to remover a malignant tumor from his colon. He said, "Now I don't have a colon; I have a semicolon."

When the doctor told me about that, I knew he would be OK, and he was. With all these donations going towards research, maybe more stories will come out like mine.

Please put this toward any% OoT.
01/08/2013 01:11:30 +0000 $15.00 Yes
(Two syllables, Augst-kalns.)

Having been watching from the start I am being hit by how much cancer really affects people. I guess there's plenty of skewing but it's also a serious problem so keep up the good work!

Put this toward F-Zero Very Hard.
01/07/2013 15:33:45 +0000 $10.00 Yes
(Two syllables, Augst-kalns.)

Hurray! I woke up to Rayman! I am excited for it on Wii U. I have literally never played or even seen a Rayman game before so this run is great for me.

Put this toward Sonic 2006 last story.
01/07/2013 02:58:48 +0000 $15.00 Yes
(Augst-kalns, two syllables again. You did OK last time!)

I was touched by Dan's $1000 donation. I can't come close but please put this $15 towards whatever his ends up going towards.

Congrats on an amazing marathon so far and I can't wait to spend the rest of my week watching.

My dad beat colon cancer last year. Thank you for this awesome cause. Also, totally get a colonoscopy once you get old like doctors say you should.

I plan to donate more later. I know this one is not enough for the Wii U, but is there any way to opt out of that? I already have one. It is fantastic and it would be super unfair for me to get a second one. (I still want to be in for that Yoshi perler!)
