I don't think I'll be doing anything urgent Sunday. What would you like from me?

Well, Skype will make for easy communication (as my Mumble server is currently KIA), and the set-up I found is a bit...odd, but it's 100% free. Just requires the other parties to have VLC.

You mean Sunday as in tomorrow, right?

Sorry, I thought you meant next Sunday. I'm actually doing research for a paper on police recording. I might still be able to spare some time, though. What would we be doing on Skype?

Skype would be mainly for a faster-pace way of communicating, than anything.

Well, as an update, I was playing around with my friend on the idea I had for it, and it's incredibly easy to set-up to stream multiple screens. There's some quality degradation, and the streamer will require multiple monitors (on my two screens being one of the players, I can manager 2-3 full-screen games).
So from here, it's basically just up to everyone to figure out how/when/what games.

Hmm...people could post their schedules as far as when they're available to play in here, as well as what games they want to  play...
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

Sounds like a good idea, yeah.
I am currently available anytime (lost my job yesterday, and have all the free time in the world until then), except Monday evenings, when I have my UGC Highlander games.
And as a game addicted human, I will play any game.
I'd suggest something small for the first game, something able to be beaten in about 2-3 hours I'd say, or a multiplayer versus game.

Well, we're playing on emulators, right? Greo did a challenge long ago for Super Metroid. EIHoppe and I participated (no one else seemed interested). It was a speed run through the game. I got a little over 2 hours. EI got under an hour or so.

Anyway, so are these challenges going to be like that? And what emulators to use? I like BSNES.

Yeah, that's what I thought Chris Miller meant when he presented the idea. Speed runs, 100% completions, even fighting games where you actually combat against one another.

Ah, so emulation is cool then. That makes everything much easier. I recommend XSplit as the recording software in that case. It appears to be much faster and better than CamStudio or Splitcam.

I'm on vacation the remainder of this week and next week, but I start my full-time intership on July 2. I'd be happy to speed-run any one of the SNES Mega Man X games under any given conditions in the meantime. Suggestions for other games, versus and whatnot, are welcome. If it's on the SNES, NES, or last-gen handhelds, I'll probably play it.

Will these be silent speed-runs, or do you guys want live commentary?

I prefer Live commentary if possible, or at least the hoster who is using XSplit (I recommend it as well, HD quality in everything but sound on the free version). If Aegis is up to it, the three of us can start it off.

Why not just use WiiU for some competition?
They said something about being able to compete with others..it might be able to do online streams or something.

KoH, that is a possibility for later when it is released.

Emulation is fine as long as no one passes any roms. That's bad. BAD! BAD! :P

Anyway, what should be our first challenge?

I'd like to do something with FF6 or A Link to the Past.

Link to the Past is a good one, but it is also a long game, it'd probably be a weekend thing since we'd need the time.
