On a very positive note, Mr Game And Watch is a great host for the Prizes section. He sounds natural, his sentences flow nicely together and - best of all - does not insist on being quirky unlike Sent.

Somebody on the Deathloop run is claiming to be a QA tester at Bethesda. Which is obviously a lie.

Did some digging on this. Turns out it was true and that they had a team assigned to testing the game as if speed runners had gotten their hands on it.

 

I can see why something like that could be useful considering there are games that can either break, bug out or give you unwanted loading screens if you go too fast.

I don't think anyone is buying the obvious lie that Bethesda has a QA department.

I do not think the speedruns are comparable. I was part of a dev team once where one of us was tasked by going through the game on an almost daily basis to make milestones. We had to deliver builds that could be played through by the publisher while we as the dev team were making changes to builds left, right and centre. It was that one team member's task to make sure the most direct line from start to finish worked. No optional stuff, no out of bounds, no upgrading. Just straight through the end.

 

There's other speed runners, I remember God of War 3 having a Trophy named after an internal speed runner, something akin to "As fast as Dave" which meant you had to beat the game in less than 3 hours or something.

 

I do not think any go these type of speed runners try to break the game, go out of bounds, strafe jump etc.

I know you're trying to be funny, but they absolutely will have and the reason their games get shipped in a state is because production and publishing will be over-ruling QA (and pretty much everyone else involved) and shipping the games to a hard-deadline. 

Their QA department are probably over-worked and stressed as a result so, SO LEAVE BETHESDA QA ALONE!
