The start of summer means it's time for the folks at Games Done Quick to once again begin raising money for Doctors Without Borders. The world's best speedrunners will converge for Summer Games Done Quick, which comes to an end tonight. So far, they have raised over $1,000,000 for charity!
Shacknews is rounding up the final Saturday schedule, as well as offering up some noteworthy runs to gather around Twitch to watch. Keep in mind that times are subject to change, depending on the length of the individual runs and their setup times. Everyone was singing for Kingdom Hearts, the Mario speedrunners were at their best, and the Super Metroid run sadly didn't live up to lofty expecations. But there's still one more day to go, so let's look at the final day:

Notable Day 7 Runs to Watch
Super Mario 64 (120 Star, 1:55:00) - 6:00PM
The three best runs have been saved for last and it starts with Super Mario 64. With all the excitement for Super Mario Odyssey coming this fall, it's a good time to take a trip back to the first 3D Mario game that originally captured the gaming world's collective imagination. These were worlds that people never thought Mario could visit and viewers will get to check out every bit of it, as cheese05 looks to collect all 120 Stars.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (All Masks, 2:40:00) - 8:00PM
The final day is upon us, so Games Done Quick is wrapping up before the moon falls down and destroys everything. Majora's Mask is largely loved by Zelda fans for bucking the series' original formula and having Link save the world in just three days. The mask mechanic was one of the coolest additions to the formula and TrevPerson will be collecting every single one. This includes the Fierce Deity mask that makes the final boss fight into a piece of cake. This one will be fun for educational purposes, as well as for anyone that just likes Zelda in any form.
Earthbound (Any% Glitchless, 4:40:00) - 12:00AM
With the fun winding down, everyone will spend the last 4 hours and 40 minutes reflecting on the week that's been while Ultimolce runs through the classic Nintendo RPG, Earthbound. Sit back and enjoy the final minutes, as Games Done Quick collects its final donations for Doctors Without Borders.
