  1. I just noticed, looking at the calender, that the Sunday of this marathon will be the 2yr anniversary of TSG as a group. The first marathon started on March 14th 2008.

  2. Can people just join in and do this? I live near the area, 4 hour drive give or take, and I’ve wanted to run all 3 MP games in less than 12 hours (MP in 2:40, MP2 in 5:00, MP3 in 4:00) and maybe do Zero Mission and Fusion as well. I’d love to participate if possible.

  3. So if a person wanted to participate in this by actually running a game how would one go about doing so. I can run Metroid Prime in under 1:50 consistently and can provide video proof if needed. I would love to do it for a good cause. I am tate on both and forums if you would like to get ahold of me.

  4. The highlights will certainly be on TSG Replay, so you can see what everyone’s talking about there.

    Just a couple days left until the marathon! I can’t wait~!

  5. looking forward to the marathon, i recently started a playthrough on metroid prime 3, didnt even know this marathon was happening until today though lol, talk about coincidences, right?

  6. Funny note to anyone who missed it. Jagger finished the marathon with a speed run of Zero Mission. His time was “only 5 minutes” over the speed run record. Perfect ending.
