We're a week into the new year. You're probably looking for something, anything, positive to get into. For those looking to get into something good, the world's top speedrunners are here for Awesome Games Done Quick 2021. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means everyone is being kept socially distant this year. But, even online, the mission remains the same. It's seven days of speedrunning action with runners tackling the best games of the past and present for a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This year's runners have already raised over $750,000 in just four days. Shacknews will be watching all week and we'll make sure to check in with the daily schedule each day this week, while also spotlighting noteworty runs worth following.

But first, let's take a look at a highlight from Day 4 and... this is a thing that happened in a video game.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online: Day 5 schedule

5:57 AM Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes All Dog Tags (Extreme) - Gamecube Tyler2022 1:14:00

8:07AM - The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

It says a lot for how much Link's Awakening holds up almost 30 years later that even with a remaster out there, GDQ continues to pay respect to the Game Boy Color version. Link's Awakening DX remains one of the series' biggest triumphs and still holds up to this day. GlyphDX will be looking to find everything, which should make for a very entertaining run.

2:10PM - Deus Ex

This is a fascinating one, because we don't know exactly what Heinki will be running. This will ultimately be up to the Games Done Quick viewers, as this slot will be taken up by one of three different Deus Ex games. Will the audience want to see Deux Ex: Original Recipe, the extra crispy Human Revolution, or the grilled Mankind Divided? Either way, the result will be the opposite of "I didn't ask for this!" It'll be a fun jump into the cyberpunk future, so be sure to check it out.

6:40PM - Half-Life

Last year was the year that Half-Life returned! Now remember why people came to love this franchise so much to begin with. Muty will look to run Valve's original classic in just a shade over a half-hour, so tune in and give it a look.


Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online will take place from now through Saturday, January 9. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to watch all of the action from Twitch.

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?

      The # of Zelda games makes this drag sometimes. Maybe I'm alone here, but I don't find Zelda runs interesting at all. Just so long.

        Enjoyed some Link to the Past races they've done previously, that's about it.

        It's cool seeing the runners take things on in different order and still come out quite close in the end.
