California State University, Dominguez Hills’ Esports Association will hold BLITZ 2 Electric Boogaloo, a two-day collegiate charity speedrun marathon, in partnership with Microsoft and GamersEDU on Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25 via Twitch, the video live streaming service.
“A speedrun is a play-through of a whole video game with the intention of completing it as fast as possible; the objective is to obtain a personal best time. Our esports team speedrunners are very specialized gamers who promote community and digital literacy by teaching the science behind the playing of video games,” said Ruben Caputo, Esports General Manager and Academic Advisor at CSUDH.
