Summer Games Done Quick

For those that are fans of speedrun marathons, the Games Done Quick events are major highlights, during which money is raised for charity and we occasionally see record breaking performances. The Summer event is almost upon us, kicking off on 22nd June at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern / 7pm UK / 8pm CET.

As normal the event will feature plenty of classics familiar to Nintendo fans, though this is a multi-platform event that'll also embrace recent titles; it all kicks off with the brilliant Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, for example — check out the official schedule for the full lineup.

As always the live stream will be seeking donations for its charity of choice — in this case Doctors Without Borders — and will offer various incentives and contests. The two main prizes being highlighted are a Wii U and 3DS, and the events in the past have achieved some truly impressive totals.

Will you be tuning in when it kicks off next week, and watching over the whole six days? Let us know, and be sure to check out the official website for details.
