Default Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) 2014



What is it?

Games Done Quick is a bi-annual charity gaming marathon. Volunteers play games at incredible speed ("Speedrunning") for entertainment. The event is streamed live online, non-stop, and all donations go directly to the charity. This is the summer event, with a winter event every January ("Awesome Games Done Quick").

Where can I watch the event?

The stream can be found here.

A detailed schedule of the games being run can be found here. All times are already converted to your local time.

What is Doctors Without Borders?

Doctors Without Borders (M?decins Sans Fronti?res) delivers emergency medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from healthcare in more than 65 countries.

For more information, check out their site. Donations can be made directly from the GDQ website.

Oh neat, glad we have a thread.

Love the 3D World run. Even though it's one of the few games I've actually speedrun levels on, I was still totally blown away by some of the tech. Specifically the touch strats that could've saved me time on the obnoxious Bowser Highway bosses :/

Didn't really catch much of Crash 3 'cause I was busy at the time. Still looked good, though!

And it's impossible for me to ever have any thoughts on Ape Escape 2 aside from "why are Ash and Misty in this game" so yeah

I really enjoyed all of the Mega Man games they did today. Especially the Mega Man 1 run with all the exploits and glitches.
