Awesome/Summer Games Done Quick


#221

Ya know what’s interesting. This happens every year but this time it happened different. Every gdq I think about what games I love from my childhood I could potentially speedrun and check out Mercenaries 1 for the PS2.

Every other year all I’ve found was either nothing or like 3 forum posts and 0 videos. This year is different.

There’s an actual leaderboard. The times in it seem like they’re reasonable to beat, but only one category has even been run. I think I can snag a world record on sheer lack of competition and the hundreds of hours I have in the game.

Best run? Sonic 1.

I’m gonna be checking Dr. Fatbody’s Twitch channel to see if it’s as entertaining as this run.

It’s not Awesome or Summer, but someone wrote a ~bot to speedrun Nethack.

By brute forcing the RNG seed of the server.

Summoning Salt did another really good history of a speedrun video about Blindfold Punch Out. He is actually mentioned in the AGDQ 2016 run back when he only had 9 subscribers.

Also another channel I found a few days ago if Tetris99 has got you into a Tetris mood - I found out the classic Tetris channel exists:
