The holiday time is over and it’s time to go back to work. Don’t worry, though, because Summer Games Done Quick 2021 Online rolls on and is totally viewable at the office. The top speedrunners in the world are back for another week-long marathon. They’re not in a live venue this year, but their mission remains the same. It’s seven days of speedrunning action, as runners play through the best games of the past and present in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.
Summer Games Done Quick 2021 Online is raising money for Doctors Without Borders. This year’s runners have already raised over $300,000 in just two days. Shacknews will be checking out the action all week and we’ll make sure to pop in with the daily schedule throughout this week, while also spotlighting noteworty runs worth following.
Before we go any further, let’s look at a highlight from Day 2. What in the world was this wackiness on display during the Ninja Gaiden run?

Happening now! – The Castlevania Block
Those who have watched GDQ over the years should be familiar with the event staples. Castlevania is one of them and this is a massive Castlevania block this year. Starting earlier this morning with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (the spiritual successor), Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is continuing the block as of the time of this post. Viewers can also look forward to Castlevania 64, Bloodlines, Rondo of Blood, and the whole thing will wrap up with a three-way race of the NES original.
