The schedule for the Summer Games Done Quick occasion working from June 26 to July 3 has been unveiled. It is trying like a reasonably stacked lineup this 12 months, however I’ve listed among the spiciest-looking entries under:
Ocarina of Time Beta Showcase
Friday July 3, 4:57 PM PST / 12:57 AM BST
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time underwent important adjustments all the best way as much as its launch in 1998, and final 12 months a group of early variations of maps lower throughout growth leaked on-line. Modders have been capable of get them working in sport, and this showcase seems to be prefer it could possibly be an attention-grabbing, informative deep dive on these early designs.
Superhot VR Any%
Saturday July 2, 7:21 AM PST / 3:21 PM BST
The mega trendy time cease shooter Superhot is a pure match for each speedrunning and VR, so davidtki’s deliberate run seems to be like a slam dunk for GDQ. We have beforehand lined the thrill of VR speedrunning with Buffet Time’s Half-Life: Alyx run at SGDQ 2020, and he additionally has a run scheduled for this 12 months’s occasion. I do not know if the novelty of a VR speedrun will ever put on off for me. It seems to be fairly bodily demanding—lastly, a speedrun for the jocks.
Elden Ring All Remembrances/Any% back-to-back
Saturday July 2, 7:25 PM, 9:35 PM PST / Sunday July 3, 3:25 AM, 5:35 AM BST
It looks as if everyone’s caught Elden Ring fever lately, and the speedy contraction of its any% world report to beneath 9 minutes shortly after launch was a sight to behold. SGDQ is working that blink-and-you’ll-miss-it any% by catalystz proper after a marathon “all Remembrances” by HYP3RSOMNIAC. All Remembrances entails killing all mainline (and a few elective) bosses within the sport, however fortunately not each final one in all Elden Ring’s 165 dangerous boys with large well being bars: Souls sequence speedrunner LilAggy appears to carry the world report there with a whopping 7:45:45 time.
Mass Impact Any% No Mako
Sunday June 26, 12:48 PM PST / 8:48 PM BST
A “No Mako” run of BioWare’s basic sci-fi ARPG entails breaking boundaries within the sport world such that you simply needn’t use ME1’s notorious offroad APC. I am simply incensed that these speedrunners are avoiding what’s objectively, undeniably the perfect a part of the sport. I am not joking, no Mako slander in my family.
