Throughout the week, Speed Demos Archive has been putting on its third annual marathon, Awesome Games Done Quick. Chances are good that a fair number of you are well aware of this and have been enjoyed watching people utterly dominate a wide range of games on the live stream. The level of knowledge on display and ability to execute in front of an audience is, at times, nothing short of astounding.
This evening, the donation total -- which will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation -- surpassed $300,000. The current goal is to raise another $100,000 on top of that, and even with only a day left, something tells me they'll be able to rally together. Currently, a speedrun of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is being broadcast.
If you've got time to spend this weekend, consider checking back in for the remaining titles: Devil May Cry 3, Metal Gear Solid 3, Pokémon Gold, Super Mario 3D Land, Super Mario 64, The Wind Waker, and Final Fantasy IX. Personally, I'll be hitting the archives for everything I missed this past week. Got any favorites?
