Charity Zeldathon ’08
Keyser Söze   |  

Charity ZeldathonHave you ever had a movie marathon? You know, like watching all the extended versions of Lord of the Rings in one sitting, and then realising your legs have atrophy and you’re unable to walk, so you invariably have to use an empty Coke bottle because you can’t get to the bathroom…. ok, I overstepped the mark a bit there, but you know what I mean.

Well, imagine playing a whole series of games, and not stopping until you’ve completed every game in that series. Now, depending on the game series… you could be there a while.

This was a feat completed recently by The Mario Marathon Team, who took it upon themselves to complete all 7 Mario games in one arse-numbing 57-hour session. What was the point? Well, the 3 friends raised over $11,000 for the Child’s Play Charity — a worthy cause in anyone’s book.

Not content with that sole venture, the MMT are doing it again, but this time with all the Zelda games. Now remembering what Zelda: A Link To The Past was like… the broadcast could last a very long time!

The timetable of events is as follows:

20:00 ET on Thursday July 31st – the Mario Marathon Team will play through:

* The Legend of Zelda
* Zelda II: Adventure of Link
* The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Twenty-Two hours later (18:00 ET) the Four48 crew will continue where the Mario Marathon team leave off by completing the four 3D Zeldas:

* Ocarina of Time
* Majora’s Mask
* Windwaker
* Twilight Princess

All-in-all, that’s going to be 7 Zelda games in about 70 hours — I think my brain would start dribbling out of my nose after about 5 hours!

Anyway the streaming video of this event will be watchable at and – please make sure to head over to in order to pledge your support and acquire more information.
