TheSpeedGamer’s Resident Evil marathon to raise money for The Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation begins Friday October 30th @ 6pm cst and will last 48 hours. A live game feed will be broadcast right here on our site www.TheSpeedGamers.com alongside a commentary feed and chatroom.
To keep things interesting there will be a “Pumpkin Cam”. We will place a webcam inside of a pumpkin outside of the house so the viewers will be able to see the trick or treaters in a separate stream beside our main feed. We want the full Halloween experience 😛
Capcom will be supporting us for our Halloween marathon. They have donated several prizes such as multiple copies of RE5(360,Ps3 and 2 autographed PC versions by the producers of RE5) and Re Archives (Wii). We also have a Resident Evil 5 collector’s edition(Xbox 360) which Phil is giving away and three copies of Looney Land Halloween Hill that Blackduck was able to hook us up with.

I’ve been keeping this a secret for a little bit, but I think now it’s time to spill the beans. Capcom has recently contacted us and asked if they could help us out with our marathon. Of course I said yes, just reading the email got me pumping my fists. Capcom is home to several of my favorite gaming franchises.
Today Capcom mailed off 2 copies of Resident Evil (PC) autographed by the producers and several RE Darkside Chronicles t-shirts. This is just the beginning though; Capcom has even more in store for the marathon. As soon as the details are finalized I’ll post them!
