Runs Sunday 14th to Saturday 20th January.

Take a look at the schedule and let us know what runs you're enjoying!

Oh nice, they're going to do Viewfinder. I've watched a (former?) WR run of that before, but could really do with some commentary to know what's going on.

In case anyone's missed it, they've had the first ever speedrunning dog

Watched Bobbeigh run Bloodstained and I’m really impressed with how he can be such a fun, engaging speaker while setting a new world record for that game.

Oh, I'm missing so many good runs! Bobbeigh's great - I'll have to check out the VOD after the event.

Twitch killed the Roku app so I really wish GDQ would stream to Youtube so I could put the event on my TV.

Ah, that's annoying! They're putting the VODs up on YouTube really quickly though - about two hours after the run finishes, which is pretty impressive

Yeah in previous years it's sometimes been up to a couple of days and I've been impressed with how quickly they've been turning the videos around this year.

The Metroid Dread 2p race was so darn close. They routed in different ways totally separate the whole run only to line up at the very end. I think it was a 2-second difference at the end?
