The Returners live 72 hour gaming marathon will start at 5:00pm CST time. If you haven’t been paying attention, The Returners are a fundraising group who raise money for various charities by organizing gaming marathons. In this case, they are raising money for Child’s Play. You can visit the live feed here.

Update: the marathon is currently underway.

The marathon will specifically deal with RPGs from the Nintendo 64 era and back- so you won’t be seeing recent games. The current planned games are Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy IV, and Final Fantasy IX.
