    Checkout the site (http://www.mariomarathon.com/) for all the information and to watch these guys play all the Mario games. They have been playing through all Mario games since Friday at 9am. All money donated goes directly to Child's Play Charity (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/). Help spread the word for a great cause.

    Edit: Fixed Link

    Hmm, the Child's Play Charity link is broken, because it should be .org instead of .com. Working link: http://www.childsplaycharity.org/

    Anyway, I'm watching the live stream right now, and these guys are doing a good thing for the kids. And they apparently raised a lot of money so far ($12,355), which is excellent. I'll try to contribute as I can to the cause!

    But boy, 42 hours of Mario so far, now that's amazing!

    EDIT: Oh, and I think this is posted in the wrong section. But hopefully the staff will let it slide, maybe. x

    EDIT 2: Lol, never mind what I just said. They are apparently playing on the Wii, so I guess this is the right section then.

    They did this last year and they broke last years donation total last night. They were also interviewed by the local TV station and was broadcast as the top story locally which is pretty cool. Anyways I figured I would share this with everyone since this is a gamer site.

    Man, I don't think I could play Mario for that long. Maybe the Pokemon handhelds, though (since they take like tons of hours just to finish the storyline).

    Pretty cool idea to help kids. Been playing Mario for almost 50 hours now, with a total of $12,921 donations. [​IMG]

    Still going working on 100% Mario Sunshine. Around $25,000 raised for Child's Play Charity. Check them out and spread the word.
