Discovered that you’re bored and have nothing to do these days? Then why not log into your Twitch account to view the 8th Edition of the Awesome Games Done Quick, a competition where speed and cunning are all that matter.
It would seem that 2017 has started with a pleasant surprise – the Awesome Games Done Quick marathon, an event that reunites video game players from all over the state. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Hold on to your hats (or VR headsets) because it gets event better.
The event will last for a whole week, and all gameplays will be broadcasted live via the Twitch. Furthermore, the competition is less about showing your friends how fast you can ace a game and more about charity.
As a result, all funds gathered by the crew during the week-long event will be donated to Cancer Prevention Foundation and used to diagnose and treat people suffering from this harrowing disease.
The grand event will debut on Sunday, the 8th of January, and 6:30 pm with the traditional pre-show. After that, the competitors will take their place for the first event of the competition which is Ape Escape Day 2.
During the same day, you will be able to see players trying to ace great games like Borderlands 2, and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D. Monday will be one the busiest day of Awesome Games Done Quick, as a player will try to beat games like Mega Man, Super Mario Kart, Shovel Knight, Quake, Psychonauts, Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster, Hitman Blood Money, The Turing Test, Sega Bass Fishing, and Super Bomberman.
The highlights of the competition will be on Tuesday, the 10th of January when players will try to tackle some of the trickiest games ever to be devised such as Little Big Planet 3, Fallout New Vegas, and System Shock 2.
The 8th edition of Awesome Games Done Quick will end on the 15th on January, at 8:55 pm. The last day of the event starts at 12:08 am with a quick Dark Souls 3 match, followed by The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker, Super Metroid, and Undertale.
What more can we ask from 2017? We have a great gaming competition with charitable goals and the promise that cheaper VR devices will soon hit the market.
