Games, but Done Really Fast. Speedrunning? | The Armor Techs Podcast

Kevin Gatlin - Staff Writer and Media Monitor

Instead of our regularly scheduled blog post today, we like to remind our readers that Armor Techs has a podcast. In our most recent episode, co-hosts Ryan and Stephen discuss the art of speedrunning. and the wonderful work done by Games Done Quick:

Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level gameplay by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its nine-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. We are currently the largest fundraising event globally for both charities! To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 19.3 million dollars for charity. We also average over 2000 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!
