Highlights from last week’s streams:
“Fire and Failure”
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 put out a funny little Mario marathon promo earlier last week that was created by Cameron Garland of TSG.
-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.
Another slow week but things will begin to pick up soon.
-I saw a near complete version of a Mario/Luigi skit that we did for one of Cameron’s film classes. I’ll be posting a link soon of the finished product!
– My 13 hour stream is right around the corner, Sunday November 25th. I’ll start at either 11am central or noon. I’ll be showing a video that details our 2013 marathon schedule.

-(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.

Not a whole lot has been going on in TSG Land.
