Awesome Games Done Quick Speedrun Charity Event Has Begun in U.S. | Power Up Gaming
Awesome Games Done Quick, a charity featuring several speedrunners playing video games to completion as fast as they can, has launched its first 2016 event as of 11:30 a.m. EST. today. The charity runs through to January 10 and features multiple games per day from different speedrunners. GDQ kicked off with Splatoon this year, and will end on January 10 with Final Fantasy IV. Currently playing, as this article is being written, is a speedrun of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, which can be viewed on GDQ's website here. The full schedule of games, including run times (converted to your PC's registered time zone), the names of the runners, and other information is also available. See a game you like? Be sure and watch the speedrun. They're never boring, and often teach you a few things you may have never known.
