Mother/Earthbound Marathon Details

Starting on May 15th @ 6pm CST and lasting for 72 hours, we will play through Mother 1, Mother 2 (Earthbound), & Mother 3 live on webcam while raising money for Susan G. Komen (Breast Cancer).

Unlike last year, there will not be a siege on NOA. Our focus will be on the charity.

During the marathon we will be compiling Susan G Komen/Mother themed fan art to create a booklet that will be available to everyone as a PDF on our website. There will be a limited number of physical copies made and given away as prizes.

Many rumors are floating around about ChuggaConroy taking part in the marathon. Well, cats out of the bag, Chugga will in fact be playing Mother 2(Earthbound).

If we finish the series before the 72 hours expire, which is expected, we will play through Mother 2 (Earthbound) again.
Several Mother/Earthbound themed prizes will be given away, so be sure to tune in.

If you are not familiar with the way we do our marathons, here’s a brief description. A live video feed can be seen here on our website,, with commentary complementing the gameplay and spurring on donations. A chat will accompany the video so you communicate with us and our other viewers.

  1. cool!

    I just finished mother 1, and I am sooo hocked on theese games. I really cant wait to see them.

    Too bad that the marathon ends on May 17th, as this is the national day of Norway. So I guess I’m missing out on mother 3… Oh well… It’s gonna be awesome anyway.

    Thx, TSG.

  2. Awesome!

    Question: Why will Mother 2 be played again if beaten before 72 hours? Any specific reason?

    Also Go Chugga!!And everyone else playing! 🙂

  3. lol. nice.

    The most important to me is that im here for the fight against giegue and giygas. Mother 3 isn’t my cup of tea… YET

    Nemesiz… u from Norway?

  4. Loved the Zelda marathon (my first experience of TGS) so I can’t wait for this one. I’ll have to finish Earthbound before the marathon so I don’t get any spoilers.

  5. Again?! This is awesome! AND it’s to fight one of the things I hate most. =D I’ve recently been playing through M1+2. The music was killed in that game… but I love it anyway!

  6. i never heard of a video game marathon, but it sounds cool :P. Ironically the only game i haven’t beaten is Mother 1. Anyway I’ll try to see this thing 😀

  7. Hey speed gamers i have heard of you from Chuggaaconroy (Emile). Did you guys no that i have had a brain injury it happened about five years a go it’s sad because i was perfectly normal before i had it.

  8. Huge fan of EB here. Can’t wait, it’ll be a blast!

    Three VERY long games back to back (well, two very long games and one medium-length)! Good luck to the players, and props to the brave soul who will be playing EB0. I heard that game causes meltdowns…

  9. I am so thrilled to see that this is going on! As an avid MOTHER series fan as well as having a mother with breast cancer, I’m thrilled to see the MOTHER speedrun paired up with Susan G. Komen. This is amazing!!!

  10. Aww, dang. I wish I knew about this. I’m going to miss the opening to the marathon because Rifftrax is doing a live show at the same time. I hope to be there for most of the rest of the show. Last year’s marathon was fun.

  11. Wow never played these games but looking forward to the marathon just the same. I am so depressed that I missed the Zelda Marathon AGAIN
