TSG Replay: Vodcasting Clips & Highlights!

As we gear up for our Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude, we’re excited to announce TSG Replay!

Beginning June 28 at 6pm CT, our Twitch page will begin vodcasting clips and highlights from TSG through the years up until July 13 (the day before the marathon begins). This playlist will include a mix of marathon highlights, stream clips, and other videos that will help you remember why you became a fan of TSG in the first place. We’ll also be vodcasting the entirety of our most recent marathon: March’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Marathon.

This is just one of many surprises that we have in the works for TSG, and we hope you enjoy this one as much as we will! Remember, the chat on our Twitch page will be live throughout TSG Replay, so feel free to interact as we reminisce! You can also join in on the fun on Discord at http://discord.gg/thespeedgamers!

Enjoy TSG Replay, and we can’t wait to kick off our Final Fantasy Marathon 2017: Pixels vs. Polygons for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at 6pm CT on July 14!

Final Fantasy Marathon Extension Information!

If there’s one thing that we’ve heard the most since announcing the dates for our 2017 Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude, it’s been “why is the marathon only five days long instead of a full week like every other summer?”

There are a lot of reasons we had to make the change this year, and to make up for it, we expanded our marathon slate to FOUR this year (stay tuned for information on our October and December marathons!). Still, though, five days just isn’t enough time for us.

So we want to go an extra 24 hours.

To do that, though, we’re going to need your help!

We’re super excited to announce a potential 24-hour extension for the Final Fantasy Marathon, meaning that it will end on Thursday, July 20 at 6PM CT instead of Wednesday, July 19 at 6PM CT as scheduled. For that to happen, though, we’re going to be setting up a donation goal. Once the event starts, if you guys can reach a total of $30,000 in donations to St. Jude by the current end-of-marathon time (which, again, is Wednesday, July 19 at 6PM CT), then we will continue the marathon for an entire extra day!

What a time to be alive.

We’ll be reminding viewers of this extension throughout the marathon and beforehand, but get those donations ready! As always, 100% of donations go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

Join us July 14 at 6PM CT at http://twitch.tv/thespeedgamers for the start of TSG.TV’s Final Fantasy Marathon 2017: Pixels vs. Polygons, and let’s get this thing extended!

Final Fantasy Marathon Charity Announcement: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

We’re extremely excited to announce that our Final Fantasy Marathon this summer will be raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

Hey guys!

Since this month is our nine year anniversary, we wanted to take a second and thank each and every one of you for all of the support that you’ve given us!

When we started this group in 2008, we never anticipated what it would grow into, and all of our success is because of you.

Thanks for the past nine years, and we can’t wait to see what the next nine have in store! We’ll see you July 14 for our Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
