This years GDQ Express was awesome and I've been meaning to do a wrap up post with some of my favorite runs and now that GDQ has posted them on YouTube... here it is!

The Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure by The_Kov in 10.53 - Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure is a special homebrew NES game made to support the Cowlitz Gamers charity and a limited run of these carts were made. I was fortunate enough to buy one from John Hancock and was really happy to see it run at this years GDQ Express by The Kov. It's a fantastic game and an amazing run to watch but it's also been released on Itch for download! The game designer of Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure reached out to let me know that the game is now up on Itch with a recommended donation to Life Works Washington that benefits the Arc of Cowlitz. So watch the run, download the game and support a great cause!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze by SpikeVegeta in 1:28:56 Spike is one of the long time hosts and commentators of GDQ and also a great Speedrunner seen in his run of DK Tropical Freeze on Switch. He uses Funky Kong due to how brokenly amazing he is to run with and Spike makes the run seem incredibly easy. Plus it's fun because Spike is a very entertaining Speedrunner to watch.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds by TheLegendofZaheer in 1:25:23 Do you like Zelda? Do you like Link to the Past? Do you like watching the sequel to A Link to the Past run very fast? I beat this game last year and if you haven't played it yet I recommend watching the run by TheLegendofZaheer to see how you can break this game. Spoiler alert, Ravio will never be the same.
