Just a quick reminder that Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 is underway! The seven day marathon benefits Prevent Cancer Foundation and will see people racing to beat games quick while raising money. On top of all the speed running, Simon Vicklund (Payday, Bionic Commando Rearmed) is lending his talents to the campaign, offering to remix one of a number for NES soundtracks depending on which gets the most bids.

900 games are on deck this year, and you can see the full schedule right here. Otherwise the stream is embedded below, and here's the donation page.

Speed Demos Archive puts on some great livestreams of speedruns, as I came to realize far too late into the last marathon. I'm heading into the latest event, Summer Games Done Quick 2013, bright and early -- you should join m...

Speedrun: Half-Life 2 cleared in remarkable 1:27:51

You know it's a good speedrun when it gets me to let out an audible "Whaaat?" I lost count. Believe me when I say that this record-breaking Half-Life 2 run by the SourceRuns Team is a good one. Actually, I'm probably va...

New speedrun bests Tony Hawk 3 in under four minutes

I thought I was a Tony Hawk pro after beating every game in the series last year, but I got nothin' on this guy, who beats Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 in three minutes and 55 seconds! The way he does it is by completing multipl...

Kid Link don't wanna grow up in this glitchy OoT speedrun

There is an upside and a downside to the patching functionality found in modern console games. On the one hand, being able to close up nasty holes that would otherwise dampen the experience is quite the welcome feature. On t...

Bit Brigade's Mega Man 2 concert / speedrun is my JAM

MAGFest is the gift that keeps on giving, apparently. Why wasn't I there? Because reasons. So there's this band, Bit Brigade, whose members I will now consider my close, personal friends for life despite never having met the...

Super Meat Boy speed run puts us all to shame

People are talking about Dark Souls, saying that it's all hard and stuff. While I don't disagree with that claim, the kind of difficulty that Dark Souls offers isn't the kind I can easily appreciate. Though I'm far from an e...

Watch someone run through Dark Souls in under 90 minutes

It didn't take long at all for a post-worthy run of Dark Souls to make the rounds. Yeah, you might just want to save this for later (perhaps much later) if you aren't very far into the game yourself. At least for me, the sen...

Watch this guy beat Portal in under ten minutes

After nearly two years of working at his speedrun, a guy by the name of DemonStrate has completed Portal with a time of -- by his count -- 9:25.567. Impressive, especially if you aren't aware of some of the glitches that exi...

TheSpeedGamers to capture all 493 Pokemon for charity

Remember when Pokémon games were limited to just 151 little critters to collect? God, those were the days. I can't comprehend trying to acquire every Pokémon they've come up with since that time. The gang a...

Final Fantasy marathon helps ACT Today

Despite Germany's perception of gamers we do indeed like to help people. Why just yesterday, after I was done being violent because I play videogames, I helped get a kitten down from a tree. I figure it balanced out. I wasn&r...

This is how you beat Final Fantasy Legend in two minutes

I like to think that I'm a fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, but I must admit that I'd never heard of Final Fantasy Legend until today, much less played it. It was kind of a big deal, apparently: it was the first RPG on the...
