/ Checkpoint / Games & Hobbies / Video Games / Checkpoint Intimates: The Speedrunning Conversation


Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context.

In this episode, Elliot and special guest Jack from Brisbane are on board to discuss speedrunning! What is speedrunning in video game terms, you ask? Well, the boys break down exactly what it is along with the giant community that’s behind it. Awesome Games Done Quick is a group who recently ran a charity event all about speedrunning, proving that not only is it something people like to do but also something people really like to watch also!

Jack himself has spent some time doing speedrunning and has his own thoughts on the subject. Tune in to hear all about this developing sub-hobby that is well and truly picking up speed… sorry.
