Supersonic speedruns streamed at Awesome Games Done Quick 2015

TASbot steals show by streaming Twitch chat.

Awesome Games Done Quick is back, raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation with a week's worth of video game speedruns.

AGDQ 2015 began last night and runs until 11th January. Highlights include multiple Legend of Zelda game speed runs, Final Fantasy 7, Super Metroid and GoldenEye.

Also of interest is the return of TASBot, a Tool-Assisted bot that plays games better than you. Check out the video, below, of TASBot doing its thing yesterday. It took control of Pokémon Red, then a Super Game Boy, then a SNES, then it started streaming Twitch chat. The audience realises what's going on at the eight minute, 30 second mark. It's pretty crazy.

But the main event, as always, is ZFG's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time speedrun, set for just before midnight on 10th January.

The schedule in full is over at the AGDQ website. While you're at it, check out the AGDQ Humble Bundle.
