Yes, there is another group that will be playing Zelda for a charity. The group is called The Returners, and they are going to attempt to play all thirteen Zelda games in under 72 hours and will be streaming it live. The charity they are raising money for is the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

About a week before the marathon, they will open up donation so that people can either go to the website to click on a direct link to the charity or by using a Chipln widget that directly donates to the charity. The donation window will be open during the marathon till about a week after the marathon.

This marathon will take place at 5:00pm CST on March 20th to 5:00pm CST March 23rd. During the marathon they will be interactive with the viewers and answering questions as well as doing various skits live online while they take donations. They hope to give out prizes to their top donors, but they are currently  unsure if they will be able to do so.

They hope to reach their $5,ooo goal with our support.

More information about this can be found at their website.

  • is there any way we could get a reminder post about our marathon that we’ve been planning for months to do exactly 1 week and 1 hour before this one?

  • Liquid

    Yeah, we can make some more posts.

  • hey thanks, and i am really sorry, my first post there really came off badly, we were just in our initial stages of shock because we were about to release our own press releases on sunday.
    i feel like my post misrepresented our attitude and i just want to apologize to you if you felt like i was being rude, because i feel I was.

  • Metropalis Z.U.

    whoa 72 hours

    so how are they tackling this will the each play one game at a time so 12 ppl play each game simultaneously or 1 at a time but if they do it 1 at a time can they pull it off i mean they would have to be really good at the games to that im good at them and in twilight princess i can get 30 hrs to the credits
    so yeah however they do it they have a once in a life time opportunity to play all the games games that are rare to find so to them i say good luck and godspeed.

    • our group at TSG will have…10 players?
      and this is our 3rd zelda marathon, and we will rape them well before the 72 hour limit is reached…and then we have some very interesting surprises planned

      • Metropalis Z.U.

        10 players…
        so 2 minds to a game at 1 time i guess 3 days

        • oh heavens no not like that
          1 person to a game, some people are doing multiple games, but everything is scheduled as far as playing, commentating, sleeping, etc.

  • Liquid

    It’s fine Baltes, I honestly didn’t think you were being rude. I’ll just post the reminder posts myself or get someone else to do it lol.

  • ChainofTermina

    Is it me or are people doing this a lot lately

  • Prince Deity

    “…they are going to attempt to play all thirteen Zelda games in under 72 hours…”
    Ummm… aren’t there FOURTEEN games?

    thespeedgamers will be doing 13 zelda titles + Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil.
    and yes prince deity technically there are the gamecube and gba versions of 4 swords and then there’s Links Crossbow training.

  • actually there are quite a few more if you count all the ones that haven’t been released outside of Japan
    either way, TheSpeedGamers are doing 13 zelda’s + Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil, so that’s 15 zelda’s xD

  • Not too sure how I found this blog but glad I did. Think I was looking for something else on yahoo. Not sure I agree 100% with what you say, but have bookmaked and will pop back to read to see if you add any more posts. Keep up the good work.
