Summer Games Done Quick 2022: Watch Day 7 here

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 comes to a close today. Check out the day's schedule and watch it all here.

24

As is always the case with a GDQ event, all good things must come to an end. We have now approached the final day of Summer Games Done Quick 2022. This year marks GDQ's return to live events, the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020. The world's best speedrunners have come together to sprint through 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 six days, the runners have raised over $1,700,000. Shacknews has one last daily schedule to bring you, as well as some runs worth watching.

Before we get to the schedule, let's look at a highlight from Day 6. Be careful with calling your shot.

You can watch all of the action in the embed below!

It's Games Done Quick. It doesn't feel like Games Done Quick without Metroid. Normally, it's Super Metroid, but now that Nintendo has released an all-new 2D Metroid, GDQ has a new tradition, as runners continue to find new optimal routing through the franchise's latest entry. Look for kekumanshoyu to get through the game in roughly 1 hour and 21 minutes.

For the traditionalists, Super Metroid is here, too... sort of. Kaizo Super Metroid is a ROMhack that makes the original game much, much harder. This calls for an expert and GDQ veteran Oatsngoats is here to answer the call.

5:30PM - Super Mario Maker 2

Last night's Super Mario World kaizo relay race offered a pretty good idea of what we'll see here. Now that juzcook, CarlSagan42, and Shoujo are properly warmed up, they're ready to join PangaeaPanga, Aurateur, and TanukiDan for this blind relay race.

You might be itching to try some of these stages out for yourself. Worry not, because Shacknews will have the level codes ready for you later today.

9:20PM - Elden Ring

So far, it's the heavy frontrunner for Game of the Year. It's Elden Ring and part of the magic of this game involves seeing exactly how to speed through it in such a quick fashion that it embarrasses the average player. Viewers are in for a special treat, as catalystz shows off how to complete the game while finding all Remembrances in just two short hours.

Have your wallet ready to donate towards the final bonus game, which would call in HYP3RSOMNIAC to complete the game in just 33 minutes.


Summer Games Done Quick 2022 Online concludes tonight. Come back to Shacknews after it's all over, as we report the final total raised for Doctors Without Borders. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website.

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 didn't realize you had to specify these when you make a donation. I made a donation last night without specifying anything. I wish I could redirect it to Super Mario 64.

          That seems to be a recurring issue among people donating. I think they're going to need to update their interface.

            It's pretty not-obvious. I'm not even sure why it's optional, they should just force you to pick something.

        They also must be SUPER confident they're going to hit the last bonus game run for Elden Ring, because they have not started raising money for that incentive yet.

      Rumour seems to be that the Alyx run was cancelled due to the runner testing positive for covid, but it worked out alright since they were about an hour behind schedule anyway.
