Kai tries to explain speedrunning to Steven in preparation for the upcoming Awesome Games Done Quick event in January. To do that, we try to explain what speedrunning is and some of the terms you will hear as you watch. A couple of notes:

1) I realized later that the TAS Block from a previous GDQ was streaming Skype and not Twitch.

2) In listening while editing, I noticed Steven calling Link "Zelda," attempting to troll me. I didn't even hear him when he said it, and now it sounds like he's just an idiot. Sorry about that!

And for your viewing pleasure, three speedrun videos to whet your appetite for AGDQ:

The Retro Zoo Super Show!

Soundtrack of the week!!!!

Wow, I'm so impressed by this disc. It's the soundtrack of Metroid played on a Korg Analog Synth, so it sounds like old 70s sci-fi and prog rock. It's amazing, and you can get it here.
