July 4 at 10:54 a.m. Pacific

I in fact just plugged my old GameCube back up, and F-Zero GX was the initially game I played. I miss this racing series, but at least its higher-speed GameCube installment nonetheless holds up. I’m excited to see an professional show the quickest way to race via this game’s inventive courses.

July 7 at 12:55 p.m. Pacific

Crash Bandicoot 4 is one of my favourite games from last year, but I haven’t watched a speedrun of it but. I’ve seen lots of runs for the older Crash games, and they’ve often been impressive. These games demand some precise platforming that can be difficult for a typical playthrough. I cannot think about how tough the practical experience becomes when you are attempting to beat Crash 4 as promptly as achievable.

Sonic 3D Blast

July 8 at 9:15 a.m. Pacific

I’m an ardent Sonic 3D Blast defender. Sure, it is not as very good as the Sonic Genesis trilogy, but this isometric platformer nonetheless has a lot of charm and an unbelievable soundtrack. And this is not going to be an ordinary speedrun, as these two are going to play this single-player game collectively making use of the very same controller.

3D Mario games make for the greatest speedruns, and this will be the initially time we’ll see Bowser’s Fury at a GDQ occasion. It’s going to be exciting to watch this player use Mario’s acrobatics to attain shortcuts and race about Bower’s Fury open map. This could be the highlight of the complete occasion.
