As the groundhog heralds Spring, so does SGDQ herald the start of Summer. The speedrunning marathon may take up most of your time when it starts this Sunday, but there's also a handful of other cool events worth your time going on!

But yes, Summer Games Done Quick is back this Sunday, kicking off a whole week of non-stop speedrunning action. Recent games you can expect to see broken include Iconoclasts, Cuphead, and Celeste. (Stream / Schedule)

The League of Legends LCS is also in full swing, as teams continue jockeying for their spot in the playoffs in the second week. (Stream / Schedule)

We've got two big fighting game tournaments this week. First, Northwest Majors has all the regular fighting mainstays like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V, and Tekken 7, as well as newcomers and smaller fair like Skullgirls, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, and Darkstalkers 3. (Streams and Schedules)

We also have 2GG: Hyrule Saga, which has Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, as well as Smash-like Rivals of Aether. It also includes Arms. (Streams and Schedule)

Anyone in a raiding mood but without the friends or guild to make them happen can tune into the World of WarCraft Mythic Dungeon Invitational, which pits top raiding teams against each other. (Streams and Schedule)

If Hearthstone is more your thing, you can catch the HCT Summer Championship this weekend In Burbank, California, and watch the playoffs as they unfold. (Stream and Schedule)

That's it for this weekend! Let us know if we missed an event, or if there's a scene you'd like us to cover, in the comments.
