And so, somehow a whole year passed with the last Awesome games made quickly… The 13-year-old speed running event begins today… After the horrific 2021, sit back and enjoy next week’s fun, spectacular and wild speed races. This is arguably the best way to start 2022. And all this is also for charity!
The weekly speed running marathon kicked off today. AND like last year, all donations will go to Cancer Prevention Foundation. As always, viewers can make donations to place bets on things like difficulty levels at which players must speed up their games, and choose character names and other game decisions that may arise.
You can watch the AGDQ live stream through the event Official site and it will also stream to Twitch… If you don’t want to watch the whole thing or don’t have time for it, you can check out the full AGDQ 2022 online timetable and schedule some time to catch certain races. Here See the full schedule on the official GDQ website.
And here are a few of the runs I’m looking forward to to watch live or post-facto on the event page on YouTube.

January 11 – Ratchet and Clank (2002) deltadoid is scheduled to launch at 2:45 pm ET:
old Ratchet and Clank Games have a long and wild history of speedrunners finding new ways to skip large sections of the game, sometimes using very strange and tricky methods. Therefore, watching the expert strike at R&C running live is an exciting thing.
13th of January – Half life 2 administered by Maltemler, set at 9:55 am ET:
I’m not a speedrunner. Not at all. But there was a time when I was younger when I tried speedrunning Half Life 2. I played it so much that I figured I could set a record or something. I’ve never done this, but watching others destroy the game using weird physics Half life 2 it’s always an explosionand reminds me of what could have been …
Jan 15 – Blindfolded Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will run through Mitchries, set for 3:50 pm EST:
