We are getting very close to our next marathon, Halloween Oct 18-21. There’s a lot for us to tackle before we are ready to roll for Halloween. We’ve got our cause picked for the event but hopefully by the end of this week we will be able to announce the charity we are supporting.

We’ve got a couple of new tidbits of information about our Mega Man Marathon (March 8-11). Jazz is looking to play one of the DOS versions of Mega Man. Right now I’m working on getting DOS box setup so that we can make this happen. If you haven’t seen the game, it’s atrocious and it should be a hilarious run for the marathon. Toast is also considering picking up an X game or two to expand the catalog of games we are playing. We are only missing X5,X6 and X7 from the main series. With Toast playing one or two of these games we will be close to clearing the entire franchise. Things are really coming together for this event with a little over a month to go. Any promotion that you guys can give the marathon would be much appreciated!
Jumping ahead to our next event, Final Fantasy, we will be starting on a Monday this time around, June 24- July1. I’m posting about this so early because this will be the first time we have started an event on any other day besides Friday. So mark your calendars now, MONDAY MONDAY MONDAY June 24- July 1.
A couple of months ago I made a thread talking about wanting to game for 2 new charities and 2 previous charities in 2013. This March we are gaming for Rocking H Ranch and for Final Fantasy we will be gaming for ACT Today. This leaves us with the last 2 marathons and 2 new charities to game for. What causes and charities would you like to see us play for?
-My monthly stream to give thanks to all of our contributors will be Sunday February 10th at around 3pm central.
-Our last two days of community stream month are tonight and tomorrow on live.thespeedgamers.com.
Hey Hey! We are just one day away from Thanksgiving here in the states. I hope everyone has a safe and fun and holiday. Don’t forget black Friday sales start earlier at some retailers this year and you can snag some new games for pretty cheap.
I’m (Britt) going to be streaming all day Sunday starting at noon!! I’m very excited about this and I’ll be going over our complete 2013 schedule with a brief little video. I’ll make the schedule announcement at around 3pm central.
-We’ve got a hugeeeeeee prize announcement that will be talking about very soon.
Not much else to talk about other than our big event that is just around the corner. The Marathon starts December 14th at 6pm central and will last 72 hours. We will be gaming for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
-Cameron recorded a promo for our upcoming Mario Marathon which will be out soon! We had a lot of fun recording it and I can’t wait to see the finished product.
-The 2013 marathon promo is also just about complete but I’m trying to decide when we should release it. I might hold off until the 25th and show it during my 13 hour stream.
-November’s goal of $80 to help pay for TSG’s web and shipping fee’s has already been met! You guys are incredible. Thank you all for making TSG possible.
-(repost) “The November 12-hour stream to thank our community for demolishing our October goal will be on Sunday November 25th from noon until midnight (central). We have been setting an $80 goal each month to offset website fees as well as shipping fees. It has gone spectacularly. Thank you guys so much for your support! Typically the stream will be at the beginning of the month but because of other commitments I have early on in the month I think the last weekend would work better.”
-I swear on a baby seal that I will finally get around to uploading the Pokemon Ranch photos from our previous marathon.
To end the post, what you do you guys and gals think should be our donation goal for the 72 hour Mario Marathon?
-I’m about 40% done with the 2013 marathon’s promo. I plan on posting it sometime in early November.
-The November 12-hour stream to thank our community for demolishing our October goal will be on Sunday November 25th from noon until midnight (central).

-The marketing team will be hosting a community event starting in just over a week called “Luigi Appreciation Month”. Details will be posted in the forums soon. Sign up to the forums and participate to win some sweet prizes.
-Local has also added a sponsors page that shows everyone who has donated to support TSG’s costs.
-Community member KyleTheDarkN has converted our Pokemon marathon recordings so I will start putting together a retrospective for our youtube.
-Giraffes continues Darktoberfest this evening (Wednesday 10/10) @7:30 pm as well as tomorrow night on live.thespeedgamers.com. Also, if you’re up a bit late, there is a late night stream of Worms Revolution tonight from 11pm-2am.

Here’s what you can expect from TheSpeedGamer’s this week and in the foreseeable future.
-In the streaming department, Giraffe’s will continue slaying evil in Dark Souls this Thursday and throughout the month of October. I (Britt) will be streaming for 12 hours straight this Sunday October 7th as a thank you for all the help the community has given us.
-We have put up a new donation goal ($80) to pay for October’s web fees which has already been met! If you would like to chip in, the donation widget is on the right hand side of our webpage and at the top of the forums.
-Consistency with Podcasts is something we have always been lacking and we are trying to come up with a new formula that would help us. We should have a new podcast coming soon and hopefully a steady flow to follow.
– It’s October so that mean its time again for our annual pumpkin carving contest. I’ll be making a youtube video soon to promote the contest and a forum thread where you can post your pictures and/or video of your video game themed pumpkin.
