It’s that time of the year again! Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 will start on next Sunday (January 7th, 2018) at 12 PM EST.
While everyone has their own favorite games to watch, here are a couple runs that I’ve noticed that stand out. They are listed in chronological order:
(I will not list their dates and times because this might cause confusion for all the timezones. Just search for the game titles in the schedule which converts to your own timezone automatically)
- F-Zero GX (Watch the runner achieve speeds that would make even Sanic te Hadgehahg dizzy).
- Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 3, Halo 5, Resident Evil 7,
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist, Sub-Terrania, Star Fox 2 (each played on the hardest difficuly)
- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (No bosses, which means some big skips shenanigans. This category hasn’t been run at a Games Done Quick event to my knowledge yet)
- Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (this game doesn’t have many sequence breaks, plus the motion controls doesn’t make it ideal for constant testruns. Be sure to show your support to the poor guy who runs this live in one go)
- Titenic (long before a certain douchebag became a certain douchebag, he created a decent song out of his playthrough. So just for the lulz, watch this one)
- Quantum Conundrum (One of the few 3D puzzle games being run at this event. The game has its own speedrun challenges, which I could barely beat myself, so it will be interesting to see what a pro can pull off here)
- Mega Man 1 - 3 (Team Relay Race)
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (100% run. If you have chores to do, this would be the perfect time to do them and watch/listen to it on the side)
- Armed With Wings: Rearmed, TAIKER(played with just one hand)
- The Legend of Zelda (100% run, 3-Way Race. Use of the “Up+A” glitch is not allowed, so for all those of you who hate all things glitches, this is for you)
- Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos (RTS games rarely get run at this event, so watch it if you’re into this type of genre speedrun)
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (randomizer race, highly-recommended)
