Last night we wrapped up our Soulsborne marathon benefiting Direct Relief. Our fall event continues to grow. In fall of 2016 we raised $4,500, 2017 $7,000 and this year $8,300! Thank you to everyone who contributed, from the viewers to the volunteers on site. A special thank you to Kampy and MC from Zeldathon/Direct Relief who assisted in making the event so successful. During Soulsborne we also debuted our new mascot/logo Molasses designed by Space Coyote. Overall a very memorable event with new faces, stunts, and more to look forward too.
Up next we have Nintendo All-Stars benefiting St. Jude Chidren’s Research Hospital December 14-17 2018 on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers. More details will be coming soon. Be sure to keep up with everything TSG by watching “TSG After Dark” every other Monday at midnight on our twitch page. Next episode is on Monday October 22. See you in the chat!
As Britt announced last week in his marathon wrap-up, we’ve announced that our Resident Evil Marathon in October will be raising money for Direct Relief International! Direct Relief is a fantastic organization, and we’re really looking forward to working with them again for this event.
Additionally, we’re SO EXCITED to announce that Capcom has agreed to work with us for this marathon for both prizes and promotion. Capcom has always been very good to us when we’ve needed them, and we’re thrilled to be working so closely with them again.
Our Resident Evil Marathon is shaping up to be something special, and we can’t wait for October 13 (Friday the 13th!) to get here!
Check out the reveal trailer for the marathon below, and we’ll see you soon!

We raised $33,580 in 144 hours for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Phenomenal! I think the best way to summarize the event is Jasef’s retrospective which I’ll link at the bottom of this post. We are now gearing up for our Resident Evil Marathon , October 13-16 for Direct Relief International. We will be playing RE 1-7 as well as a few of the spin off games. We’ve started planning out a theme for the event as well as cool partnerships that we will be able to announce shortly. If you want to stay in touch with all of us, be sure to join the discord, discord.gg/thespeedgamers . It’s a great place to hang out with the community between marathons! See you all soon 🙂
