TSG Podcast Episode 12

A short podcast with a small team this time. We recap the Metal Gear Marathon and look forward to our week long Final Fantasy Marathon, including our official player list. As usual, questions asked by the community are also answered.

Sorry about the volume levels in this episode, we have some kinks to work out.

TSG Podcast Episode 9

Don’t forget the Mother/Earthbound Marathon starting May 15th @ 6pm CST. http://www.thespeedgamers.com/

This week we cover Marvel versus Capcom 2, the PSP Go!, Final Fantasy XIII (which was removed from the last episode), Uncharted 2 multiplayer, Ace Attorney Investigations and a possible new big product from Nintendo. Following, as always, will be our Fan Mail segment.

August Marathon details revealed!

Yes, this was an April Fools joke. Did we fool you?

We will not be playing a Petz Marathon… yet.

In August The Speed Gamers will be on the fourth consecutive summer marathon, trailing on the heels of Final Fantasy Marathon week we plan to take on a lighter series. So on August 14th at 6PM CST the Petz Marathon will begin! We will be supporting The DJ&T Foundation, established in 1995 by the well-known television personality Bob Barker, which funds low cost spay and neuter clinics and offers voucher programs as a way to help relieve animal over population.

The following games will be played over the 72 hour marathon: Petz: Catz Clan, Petz Vet, Petz Sports, Petz: Dogz Fashion and Petz: Dogz Pack. Fettouhi will also stream the classic computer game Alley Cat, and for the first time as a TSG gamer Rust will work his way through Hello Kitty: Bubblegum Girlfriends.

So join us in August for a fun filled weekend, as all the commentators show off their petz and tell stories. There may even be some dog food eating. Prizes of toys and treats for our furry little friends will be awarded to donators and fan artists.

And remember, help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.

Server move complete

Over the course of last night and this morning Local and I (mostly Local) were transferring the files and databases to a new Virtual Private Server. We are now ready for the marathon, and should not have any problems with the load of other sites taking down thespeedgamers.com. No more CPU Limit Exceeded warnings!

This marathon will be the best one yet!
