Aiyoh, I’m exhausted. I thought this marathon would be a breeze compared to our week long Final Fantasy marathon but I’m still beat.
What a great summer we had with you guys. I’m proud of our community that continues to grow and do amazing things for society. I guess us gamers aren’t so bad after all, huh?
Our Halloween marathon starts Octobers 30th and lasts 48 hours. We will be playing the Resident Evil series and currently you can vote on the cause we are gaming for in the forums.
I received an email from The Megas offering three great prizes for the marathon. Three bundles with a CD and a Mega’s shirt of the winner’s choice. If you haven’t already, check out The Mega’s debut album Get Equipped, a tribute to the MM2 soundtrack .
Thanks to Jason Start for sending them the tip about us.
Here’s TheSpeedGamers on the local news. Sorry it took so long for me to upload it.
TheSpeedGamer’s Mega Man marathon to raise money for Earthday.net begins Friday August 14th @ 6pm cst and will last 72 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 we’ve decided during the evening hours to commentate outside in light of the cause we are gaming for.
Many great prizes will be given away to viewers and donators. Mana potions is supporting us again by giving the top 3 donators (6pack combo Mana/Health, T-shirt, Wristband, Mousepad) and top 3 runner-up donators (4pack Mana/Health, wristband) for the event.

Thanks so much for everyone’s contribution, we couldn’t have done it without you. We smashed our original goal of $20,000 and have raised over $50,000 for ACT Today! The chipin will stay up until Monday.
Right now we are all a little awe struck and exhausted. We are having one last dinner as a group and then we go back to our normal lives.
Sorry for the long delay, It has been hectic lately. I’ll never forget last week, I’m very proud of what the TSG community has done. Fun and fullfilling doesn’t do justice when describing what was last week. Lets just go with the over used term EPIC. With my free time I’ve visited all sorts of sites that redirected to us, wrote about us, tweeted, ect. and I still cant get over the amount of support we received. I’ve also got a chance to look at all the fan art and it never fails to keep me smiling for hours. There’s no better way to relive the marathon then through the artistic minds of the viewers. You guys are great.
The one downfall was that we didn’t finish all the games by our 168 hour deadline. But hey, that just gives us reason to make a second attempt somewhere down the line 😉
Be sure to check out our 72 hour Megaman marathon for earthday.net starting August 14th @6pm cst.
Our store has reopened since the marathon has concluded.

Thanks everyone for another enjoyable marathon. The viewers were steady throughout and our store grand opening went great. I think the rest of the marathons you see from us will always either be for some sort of charity or cause. It seems to add quiet a bit more enjoyment for both the viewers and us.
Now we look ahead to the much talked about Final Fantasy marathon which starts July 17 and will last a week. More details will be posted soon.
If you won a prize expect an email shortly and I will ship ASAP.
