Are you struggling to find something to do? Still recovering from the post Christmas/New Years holiday overload? Are you perhaps stuck inside while negative temperatures turn the world into a Roland Emmerich disaster movie? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and even if you didn’t, you’re going to want to drop everything, turn on Twitch, and settle in for what will be the best week of live entertainment you will ever see.
If you logged onto Twitch at all last week and wondered why a really obscure, old game had over 100,000 viewers, wonder no more. Awesome Games Done Quick was happening, a week-long, 24-hour live streaming event where the best video game speedrunners demonstrated their skills for charity, with every dollar donated going to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
