It's about time for another fun week dedicated for speedrunning and charity!
copy-pasta activate :3

Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 will be live starting January 7 and will be streaming non-stop until January 14.

Games Done Quick Twitch - https://www.twitch.tv/gamesdonequick


Missed a scheduled run? Check back on their Official Youtube Page for archive uploads of speedruns.


For those who do not know what the GDQ events are, here is a summary to it (copied from their homepage):

Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level play by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its six-year history, such as Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. 

If you are curious to what games will be played this event and their respective start dates/times (time specified on the site will adjust according to your time zone), check the link here: AGDQ 2018 Schedule

For those interested to know how much these events have already raised, here is a wikipedia page to refer: GDQ Wiki Page

For other FAQs about the event, please refer to this page on their site: GDQ FAQs


Also, as my contribution to help and spread information about the great things that the speedrunning community has brought, I'd like to extend my efforts also by making a GIVEAWAY TRAIN! (Had to be shorter than the previous one, will add more after a few days).

The giveaway train will be open for all levels (rule breakers, however, will be prohibited from entering the giveaways. The checking will be done using the SGTools site) and will end approximately a few hours before the event ends. For those blacklisted, please leave a comment below and I'll remove you from the list.

ENTER THE TRAIN!

The bumps for the thread are appreciated so that we can maximize publicity and spread the event for others to know. Thanks! <3

I hope to catch a nice "glitchy" speedrun - those are the best for me - the combination of finding glitches / bugs in the game coupled with skill of the player is super enjoyable to watch :)

ESGST has a train-maker? x_x'
Stumbled over that one quite a few times already, but never bothered to install it (or any script so far)...

I might have to re-read the description :P

That and so much more, I can't imagine using SG without it now...
The new(ish) browser extension version is even better 👍

It's more like AGDLCQ :(
Submode only on twitch is a bad decision. Also this: https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comments/2r98kv/agdq_are_only_22_of_agdq_donations_actually/
Still like the runs and the idea behind it

but thanks for the train :)

+1 just give directly to PCF (or better still an even more effective charity like GiveDirectly or the Against Malaria Foundation)

Ah, my favorite annual drama train. So far there just trans drama which is unfortunate, hopefully some of the fun drama comes soon.

Also hopefully this year it isn't an incompetent mess.

Never really got the point of speedrunning ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But there's nothing wrong with a bit of charity I guess 😉
Thanks for the ride! 😀
