It is time to get back to work, to fire up the coal stoves with our shovelling, to.. push the pens across the desk and make the excel spreadsheet cells colourful again. Okay maybe my analogies point out how little I understand about what you do for a living, but everyone is feeling a bit shell shocked that it is back to pants and humans for us all. If you are battling to deal with sitting at work and it being completely gaming free, never fear because Awesome Games Done Quick is live and ready to keep you company.
The winter edition of the speedrunning marathon for charity is here, full of Any% runs, relays and a few 100% runs that will show you where all the secrets are hidden. As I write this Bomberman Hero is being played on N64, with a lot of gaming to keep you company for the day.
Some highlights include DOOM (2016) 100% Nightmare, which starts tomorrow morning at 5.30 am and an any% co-op relay on Final Fantasy VIII on Wednesday, which will take up most of the day with its 9-hour-long slot. Thursday has Super Hydlide at 9.30 am, a game that broke my face last year because it is just so awful to watch… and I might watch it again. Then on Friday we have some great company as we wait to leave work, with BioShock, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Subnautica, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines and more Any% runs to keep you going.
I love seeing brand new games, but also watching long games I love being broken down into the smallest possible units too. Between FF8, Wind Waker and Control, there is enough to keep me glued this week and on the weekend too.
Check the full schedule here. I won’t tell your boss.
