My CV4 GDQ Experiences

I feel so honored to have played with and met the best Super Castlevania IV players from around the world at AGDQ 2015 as shown below:

The AGDQ2015 experience was amazing for me.  It was my first time ever at a GDQ and it was really cool to meet all the speedrunners from Twitch and SDA/SRL.  Being able to to do a race of one of my all time favorite games with over 80k viewers was amazing!  Here is a video of the Super Castlevania IV race that me JoeDamillio, Just_Defend, and Hanage_Belmondo participated in:

Here is some more screenshots from the event that is CV4 related:

This is the room where they streamed the event at.  In the room they had 2 big screens setup for the audience, behind the screens were the players of the race.
