Watch all the best NES games being speedrun this weekend

New, 2 comments

Some of the very best action from the most recent Games Done Quick charity marathon included classic Nintendo franchises like The Legend of Zelda, including a run made entirely without a sword. This weekend, dozens of the world's best speedrunners are at it again, taking on only the best classic titles from the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Things kicked off Friday at 12 p.m. ET with Bucky O'Hare on hard mode. Even more great titles are in the pipe, including Strider at 4:50 p.m., a block of Ninja Gaiden games at 6:10 p.m. to be followed by a block of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

On Halloween we'll get Bionic Commando, as well as a massive Mega Man block — six complete games in a little over three hours! Sunday we'll see Maniac Mansion and Metal Gear, as well as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The action ends Monday, but not after more than 140 NES games have been beaten.
