Shacknews Guys Die Quietly: Shack Plays Summer Games Done Quick 2018 Super Mario Maker Levels

After watching the Super Mario Maker blind relay race from Summer Games Done Quick on Saturday, Shacknews had a desire to try some of these levels out ourselves. Check out how we did.


Over the weekend, Summer Games Done Quick 2018 held a 3v3 Super Mario Maker Blind Level Race, pitting teams of three of the best Super Mario Maker speedrunners and streamers against one another. The stages ranged from tough to mind-numbingly difficult.

For today, Shacknews decided to try some of these levels out for ourselves. Specifically, I, Senior Editor Ozzie Mejia, opted to try a handful of these levels.

So welcome, everyone, to SGDQ (Shacknews Guys Die Quietly) and watch as we try to complete [SGDQ] Against All Odds, TeenageMutantNinja[SGDQ]uirtle, and [SGDQ] Six Guys Dash Quickly.

Be sure to check out all of the Course IDs for the Super Mario Maker levels from Summer Games Done Quick 2018. And be sure to subscribe to Shacknews and on YouTube.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
