Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 (AGDQ) starts today



The ever popular streaming event for speedrunners, Awesome Games Done Quick, has started once again, bringing skilled players to the table to speedrun multiple video games in order to raise money for charity. The winter event will take place January 7 to January 14, in Herndon, Virginia, encompassing a full week of streams, including speedruns of titles like Donkey Kong Country 2, Sonic Mania, Castlevania SOTN, Super Mario 3D World, along with a finale consisting of Breath of the Wild, and will raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. AGDQ's last event took place in summer 2017, and raised over 2.2 million dollars in donations for cancer prevention. The Twitch channel will be linked below, along with a schedule of all the upcoming games.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 will kick off at 8:30 PT/16:30 GMT. Prior to that, will be a rebroadcast of last year's show.

Super Metroid has been done to death tbh. There's only so many times you can do such an optimized run, since they try to keep things fresh. I don't think any major changes have happened for that game in ages. Makes sense not to do it.

Also chat in sub only mode, wew. Bout time. Now people can actually semi-intelligently chat. There's 160k++ people watching at all times, chat was an absolute dumpster fire cancer fest. I'm baffled it took so long for them to find sub only mode.

Anywho super excited, I completely forgot this was happening. Very hype for some new runs to watch

I haven't watched gamesdonequick in years...I just got tired of it, I like zeldathon more to be honest, at least with them it's just a small group of people, not a whole bunch at one time where you can nevewr know the people playing the games, I just think Zeldathon is so much better
