After an eventful Awful Games Done Quick block, this year's Awesome Games Done Quick continues! The top speedrunners in the world are a little over halfway through seven straight days of running through some of the best games of the past and present. Watch as they continue their mission in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This has so far been one of GDQ's best events to date, as runners have raised over $1,000,000 in record time. 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 noteworthy runs worth following.

6:58AM - The Castlevania block

It's a milestone anniversary year for the Castlevania series, so why wouldn't Games Done Quick celebrate it? On top of featuring several Castlevania games, they're not the ones that are typically seen during a speedrunning marathon. Gather around for Lament of Innocence, Dracula X, Circle of the Moon, and Chronicles and get a different kind of Castlevania experience.

4:01PM - Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix HD

We briefly noted yesterday that the addition of randomizers have added some spice to the usual retro runs. This year's run of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix HD will go a step further, adding co-op play and pitting two teams of KH veteran runners against each other. Tune in for what should be an exciting race, which will probably feature the requisite Disney karaoke breaks.

12:00AM - It Takes Two

You might have to stay up late for this one, but it's going to be worth it to watch this 2021 GOTY candidate get the Games Done Quick treatment. ItzBytez and whoishyper is going to set aside any divorce plans and come together under the guidance of Dr. Hakim to blaze through this cooperative gem in just two hours. That's marriage counseling done quick!


Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Online will take place from now through Saturday, January 15. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to come back all week to Shacknews for more on this week's marathon.

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?

        I can't follow this speedrun. He is just crashing into enemies and using cards he doesn't have?

        • reply
          January 13, 2022 7:53 AM

          Yes, apparently if you select a valid card set and then immediately switch to an invalid set (with cards you don't have yet), if you do that without pause, the game doesn't bother checking if you actually have the cards. So with only to cards you effectively have all the cards.
          Apparently with the speed booster effect, it's faster to run through the enemies, tanking the hits than it is to avoid them, as save rooms refill your health and are right next to all boss fights.

            I am not a fan of runs that use glitches and even if it is faster to bump into enemies it gets no style points.

        That was a real-time world record.
        However the game is normally played with in game time, which since he got a strike early on, was running faster than real time, and so it wasn't an in-game time world record.
