TheSpeedGamers to Host Zelda Marathon for its Ten-Year Anniversary

Watch live video from TheSpeedGamers on

It’s kind of hard to believe that TheSpeedGamers is coming up on its tenth anniversary. Even now, one of my favorite memories from within the Zelda fan community was when I watched that 2008 marathon stream of theirs. It was one of the first times I’d seen such a large group of people channel their love for gaming into such positive, real-world change.

It’s fitting, then, that the gang over at TSG celebrate its tenth anniversary with another Legend of Zelda marathon. From March 9 to March 13, this 96-hour stream of the series will be raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Be sure to tune in!

Watch the Zelda Dungeon Informer Marathon for Child’s Play

Soon after one Zelda marathon ends, another begins. Just a couple of days ago, Zelda Dungeon and its partner site, Zelda Informer, kicked off its own trek through the series. In an effort to raise money for Child’s Play charity, the gang is playing through virtually every Zelda game — CDI games included. As of this posting, they’re finishing up A Link Between Worlds. Be sure to follow the Twitch stream and donate to Child’s Play!

Breath of the Wild: More E3 Impressions

Alongside my work for Want Midna Back, I occasionally write articles for fellow fan site Zelda Dungeon. My most recent one sheds more light on my Breath of the Wild play session from this past E3. Although my first set of impressions focused almost solely on the game’s story, this one delves deeper into the world map and new mechanics. Head over to Zelda Dungeon and check it out!

Watch TheSpeedGamers’ Zelda Marathon for St. Jude

Formed in 2008, TheSpeedGamers’ is a non-profit organization that periodically holds gaming marathons for various charities. Watching its 2009 Zelda marathon in particular remains one of my most memorable experiences within the Zelda fan community. Seven years later, these guys are back at it with yet another trek through Link’s adventures.

Considering all of the Zelda content that has released since TSG’s previous Zelda marathon — nearly three years ago — the gang is getting a bit more ambitious this time around. Unlike previous outings, which lasted for about 72 hours, this marathon is scheduled to run for a whole week. It just kicked off a couple of hours ago — be sure to tune in and donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
