The AGDQ 2016 schedule can be found here

What this thread is for:
This thread is for finding and confirming couch commentary for runs at AGDQ 2016. If you need a couch commentator but don’t know who is coming, you can post here. If you simply wish to let us know who will be on your couch so it will be on the schedule, you can do that as well.

If you are posting requesting commentators for your run, please state which run you’re looking for help on. You will get more responses if people don’t have to look you up on the schedule themselves. Plenty of people are willing to learn about runs just to commentate for them, as well. If you feel like you need help on the couch, don’t hesitate to ask for help in this thread.

When you are finished compiling the list of your couch commentators, please post or PM me with who they they are and let me know your list is full. I will indicate on the thread that your couch is closed.

Keep in mind that this thread is for planning purposes. There aren't any requirements to have your couch set by any date, but if you are just getting things figured out at the even, the couch commentators will probably not appear on the schedule.

General guidelines
Runners have the final say on who is on the couch and who receives a microphone. Having a good idea of who is on your couch and discussing your general plan before the run will greatly improve the quality of the commentary for your run.

Races with three or more runners require dedicated commentary from someone on the couch.

Don’t try to plan everything in advance. Just make sure you’re comfortable with each other and can carry on decent conversations about the game. If you don’t know the commentators very well, make use of the private practice room for runners to sit down and practice commentary, it helps a lot.

If you plan to do most of the talking for your run, grab some friends you can carry on (appropriate) banter with during your game’s downtimes, or who can prompt you on good things to talk about.

Mike posted a thread about couch commentary before, and a lot of what he said still holds true so instead of rewriting it, I’m going to drop it here for your reading.

What makes good couch commentary?

Here are the four basics

-Be informative about in-game mechanics.

-Don't interrupt the runner, but make sure to fill in gaps if the runner didn't explain something or elaborate.

-Build a rapport with the runner, get in skype or mumble calls with them.

-Have fun! If you're excited to give a serious breakdown of a game, there have been tons of awesome and informative runs in the past. A sillier or fun run is fine as well, just as long as everyone involved knows.

A good example of good couch commentary would be the Yoshi's Island run from AGDQ 2013.

Commentators confirmed for:
Metroid Fusion: Dragondarch, Mr_Shasta

Fine with really anyone else kinda familiar with the games assuming there's room
I speedrun literally every game, so if you need a commentator for something, come find me. Twitter is best (@_authorblues). I'm a beast.

Sephazon: 2015-11-22 05:35:27 pm
Games I am interested in commentating for:

Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Pokemon Yellow
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

For context, aside from being a casual speedrunner, I am an established and experienced YouTube commentator who conducts interviews, discussions and reviews with fellow content creators. I am also the Director of Marketing for Zelda Universe (worlds largest Zelda community) and I am very knowledgeable on the series as a whole. Furthermore, I will be heavily promoting these speedruns during the event for the site. I'm a longtime Pokemon fan and have been speedrunning Pokémon Crystal for four years now, and I would love to learn more about Pokémon Yellow in general. Lastly, Fire Emblem is a series I've always been interested in speedruns for, and I would consider it to be a very entertaining and engaging game to help commentary for.

Feel free to tweet at me (@Sephazon) if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to attending AGDQ 2016 and meeting many of you there.

I could also commentate for Metroid Zero Mission if SamTheDigital wants me to since I've also run the game.

Also if anyone else wants me on their couch, I'm down for it
That's "Mr." Speedrunner, to you

For Rayman Legends, there should be a fair amount of runners going(Assuming they will be there day 1)

I'd say Caneofpacci, FearfulFerret, and DownieBrownie get first dibs, but if others end up offering, I'm open to whoever

I'd also like to offer my services for:

Kingdom Hearts 1.5

In addition, the runner of KH1.5, Zetris agreed to make the couch:



I can also offer my services for:

Donkey Kong Country (If there are a lack of good commentators)

Responding for Secret of Mana:

I already confirmed Puwexil and OverfiendVIP for the couch (Overfiend hasn't written in this thread). I 'assume' there should be enough space for two more people, as I expect to sit on a chair in front of the couch in order to reach a table of sorts. Since I know both Vulajin and Gyre are really awesome, I'd happily have them on the couch as well - if they have enough space Smiley

Further: I request Blechy to sit on the couch for Goof Troop run ^^

Commentating on Metroid: Zero Mission

Can confirm Dragondarch and Mr_Shasta for Metroid Fusion commentators.
I am looking for a commentator or two for my run of INK Smiley
Not a walrus
Blaster Master:

gyre & puwexil have offered and I think that'll be good for the couch.
I'm willing to help out anyone that would like someone on the couch for commentary for any game. Just give me a heads up and we can talk about the run and I'll be sure to study up.

As for me, I don't really have a preference for Outlast, so couch is open, just run it by me first if you want to be on the couch. I should have things for the most part, but I know I may leave some things out so it's nice to have some back up in that case.
