Last week, we shared the news that Awesome Games Done Quick was back for another week, with ridiculously talented speedrunners strutting their stuff live on Twitch to raise funds for charity. The event is now over, and a grand total of $2.39m was raised for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Amazing.

There were plenty of Nintendo runs on display throughout the show, with speedruns of games like Super Mario Sunshine, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess standing out as just some of the highlights, although there were plenty of other reasons to get excited, too. Runner, Krankdud, actually managed to break two world records live on stream, one for Mega Man Zero 2 in hard mode (Any%), and the other for a two-player co-op run of the A episodes in N++.

If you missed the event, you can catch up on some of the runs on YouTube (sadly, not all are available to rewatch). We've included the channel's 'Finale Video' below which recaps events quite nicely.

Since it started back in 2010, Games Done Quick has raised more than $19m for charity; the next stream is Summer Games Done Quick 2019 which takes place between 23rd and 30th June.

Did you catch any of the stream? Tell us below.
