Not sure where this should go, so a mod can move it if necessary, but just wanted to let people who didn't know know that TOMORROW (starting at 11 AM CST) is Speed Demos Archive's annual gaming marathon, Awesome Games Done Quick! A week of speed running action to raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation! For more info, check out their sweet promo video below.

I'm set to watch pretty much all of this. Most excited to see how Cosmo does with a new skip that was found while he was on the flight there.

Oh, it seems like they dropped aweful games done quick and are doing WTFjapan instead. I try to catch a few of those runs to see if I like this better than what they did last year. From what I can see, I'll probably watch a few runs but not too many. I have little time this week and there are not that much runs that I really want to see live.
But it is going to be great!

And it seems like Blueglass is not doing a game this year :(

They didn't drop AwGDQ, they moved it to it's own block (starts with Pacman 2 and ends with Contra Force)

One of the games I was most excited for was Metal Gear Rising... but isn't that my luck, with my new job, I'll be at work during it. Oh well, that's what the Past Broadcasts section is for. Anyway, really enjoying it so far, and its crazy how much money they've already raised.

I'm loving the marathon so far, there are a lot of great runs I've seen and can't wait to see. By the way, during Kirby's Adventure the commentator or reader's voice sounded like Ana's. I was wondering if that was actually her or someone who sounded like her. Just something I was wondering about.

01-06-2014, 01:00 AM
It was actually her. She's there. :)

Wow really? :O I really need to make time to check it out.

This is a pretty good day for Twitch not to work on all 3 of my Laptops...

That was my favorite run so far. Also, following that with the Sonic 2006 run was really good also.

I do not have time to find the links - but the Super Mario games and GTA:VC (although I prefer gta 3) were awesome!

The f-zero run Shiron posted was insane as well. But I thought I only mention runs I was able to see live.

Loved F-Zero X, but unfortunatly missed SNES and GX.

01-11-2014, 08:46 PM
Been watching off and on over the past few days. That Super Monkey Ball 2 race was amazing, as was the BLINDINGLY fast Viewtiful Joe run, anything Ninja Gaiden, and the 1-handed SM64 16 star run.

Basically, everything has been awesome.

thank for the list and the link to the reddit post :)

Awesome! Makes it much easier to watch or rewatch runs, thanks!

01-14-2014, 08:06 AM
the bonus stream had ecco in it. Glad I at least got to see it there :)

01-14-2014, 08:43 AM
It also had Rayman. YEAH! % ...And Power Rangers? Excuse me while I check out the VoD!

The GX run was euphoric, the barkley run funny, the super metroid run nerve wrecking and the blind folded punch out runs were as hype as ever.

Can't wait for SDGQ
