Summer Games Done Quick, the summertime counterpart to winter's Awesome Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon, starts this Sunday, July 3rd, and runs until Saturday, July 9th. PC fans can look forward to a few notable highlights for the week:
- Monday strings Bioshock, Dishonored, Wolfenstein: TNH, and Amnesia back to back.
- Three classic Star Wars games are scheduled for early Tuesday morning (12 AM).
- Classic FPS takes over Wednesday night with Hexen, Doom, Deus Ex, and more.
- Thursday evening is all about Bethesda, with several Elder Scrolls and Fallout runs.
But there's a lot more to see. We looked through the busy schedule and picked out all the PC games to save you the trouble of sifting through. Be sure to look through the rest of the schedule too, even if you’re not typically into console games. Listening to professional speedrun commentary can be surprisingly fascinating and educational. I don’t even like Super Mario Sunshine, but I can’t tell you how many late nights I’ve spent hypnotized by Mario’s dumb water jetpack. No shame.
The stream is embedded below, and further down is the detailed PC-specific schedule. If you get the time, watch some runs and donate a few bucks. It’s for a good cause and you might learn something new about how games work.
