Every week, countless speedrunners hit the go fast button in their game of choice and broadcast it to the world on sites. Here's a quick look at some of the events happening this weekend where people hit the go fast button.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
