    Awesome Games Done Quick is approaching soon. From Sunday January 8 - 15 their twitch channel will be live for 7 day marathon, with well known players from the speed running community, playing some of the worlds most popular, and unpopular games from start to finish, completing them as fast as possible. Featuring some of the most entertaining players and games, is a show I get excited for often. Is there anyone else excited for this? What are some of your favorite players or games that you hope get to see? You can check the schdedual below and when the time comes you can also click the link below to watch as well. :)

    :arrow:Official website (For more info)

    :arrow:Twitch channel (Check Scheduel to know when to tune in)

    There is sometimes known to exist Re-Streams supporting various languages which I did not list but will be provided during the time they are live, for anyone who may not want to watch in English.

    One of my favorite parts is the "TASBOT" Which is just watching Tool assisted speed Runs live instead of on emulator. They have been collaberating with this event and is just always interesting when they do. ^_^

    I'm always excited for this, but will probably not follow it live. The TASBOT is fun sometimes, but I think it's more impressive to see real people do awesome game quickly :P
    My favorite games to watch are the retro ones, and those with minimal story. Silent Hill 4 will be interesting though!
