1:42PM – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Most of this year’s Awesome Games Done Quick has focused on newer games and some more non-traditional runs. The usual staples haven’t been featured as much, but here’s a game that will look refreshingly familiar to GDQ viewers. It’s time for A Link to the Past, where players will get to check out an All Bosses run. Celebrate Zelda’s 35th anniversary more than Nintendo did by tuning in for this run.
3:10PM – Tetris: The Grand Master
Speaking of GDQ traditions, it’s time for the annual journey into Tetris: The Grand Master, where the most esteemed Tetris players in the world will dive in for an exhibition unlike any in the world. This is a segment that’s not to be missed.
3:40PM – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Speaking of runs not to be missed, we’ve seen a lot of blindfolded runs at GDQ. Punch-Out? Okay, that’s hard, but it can be done based on sound cues. Super Mario 64? That’s much more challenging, but a Mario expert can make it work. A FromSoftware game? Now it’s just getting wacky.
But, here we are. Mitchriz is about to impress the gaming world by showing that he can complete Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, as unforgiving as any title in the FromSoftware library, without use of his sight. I’m a little disappointed that this isn’t being called “Zatoichi%,” but we can’t have everything, can we?
Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Online comes to a close tonight. Come back to Shacknews at the end, as we’ll recap how much has been raised for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website.
