Summer Games Done Quick is on the third day of its return to live speedrunning. Check out the full schedule and watch it all here.

12

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is two days in and going strong. This year's event is a special one, as it's the first GDQ to be held in a live venue since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020. The world's top runners are here to speed through some of the top games of yesterday, today, and sometimes even tomorrow in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is back in Bloomington, Minnesota. Many of this year's runners are on-hand for live runs, though a few are checking in virtually from their home spaces. This year's event is raising money for Doctors Without Borders. After two days, the runners have raised over $300,000. Shacknews will be watching all week and we'll make sure to bring you the daily schedule each day. Plus, we'll highlight the noteworthy runs worth watching.

Before we get to the schedule, let's look at a highlight from Day 2. KZ_FREW heads off into retirement in style, by showing up some Vice City Definitive Edition jank.

It's time for a GDQ staple. It's the Mega Man Block at SGDQ! For this year, SGDQ is spotlighting some lesser seen Mega Man titles, like Mega Man Powered Up, Mega Man Xtreme, and Mega Man: The Wily Wars. Strap in and enjoy Capcom's old-school platformer, because these runs are always amazing to behold.

8:06PM - Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey has rapidly become a GDQ fixture, but this year's SGDQ is taking a deeper dive into the latest mainline Mario title. It'll take roughly over three hours to get through the full Darker Side and one of the toughest Mario tests is waiting at the end. If you haven't seen what lies on the Darker Side of the Moon, get ready to be blown away.

12:43AM - Final Fantasy VI: Worlds Collide Randomizer

Randomizers are always a big hit at GDQ and this one should be an interesting one to watch unfold. Four different runners will look to run through a Final Fantasy 6 randomizer, which is a rarity for these events. It's likely that the casual GDQ audience has never seen this one before, so get ready to check out a mixture of something classic and something new.


Summer Games Done Quick 2022 Online continues from now through Saturday, July 2. 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?
