Starting on Friday March 11th the TSG staff and community will be playing over 72 hours of Mega Man to celebrate our 8 year anniversary ! You will be able to watch the entire event on our twitch page, twitch.tv/thespeedgamers . The marathon will be played remotely like our community events and not like our typical marathons.
So far we have 16 volunteers scheduled to play throughout the weekend and possibly longer. We will be raising money for St. Jude during Mega March that will go toward our total for our week long Zeldathon (June 24-July1). A full schedule for Mega March and other details will be available soon. We will also be doing a live podcast during the event discussing TSG’s history and memories on Sunday March 13th @ 7pm Central.
TheSpeedGamers first marathon was on March 14, 2008. We played 72 hours of the Zelda franchise and raised $1,090 for St. Jude. Since then we have raised over $535,000 for various charities and have had over 35 events.
We look forward to seeing you all in the chat!
