If you’ve never heard of the Games Done Quick marathons and you’re a gamer you need to unearth yourself from your rock hiding. It’s a 24/7 speed run marathon and takes place twice a year for a whole week (and a little bit after that) for charity. Check them out every January and June!

The Summer marathon is on going as of this moment for a few more days. Watch at gamesdonequick.com. You can also visit the Speed Demos Archive’s Twitch.tv past broadcasts page to catch anything you missed.
