Anatomy of a Mr. Saturn
The Speed Gamer’s EarthBound / MOTHER series marathon for charity the other day ended with $10,451 in donations, which is apparently the most that any of their charity marathons have brought in. If you helped out, you deserve a donut today!
If you missed it, they played 72 hours of MOTHER 1, EarthBound, and MOTHER 3, and because they had so much time left over, they went back and played through EarthBound again. Also, Fangamer showed up and offered a lot of cool stuff to people who donated. There was even an impromptu auction.
I don’t know what the maximum number of viewers at any one time was, but I heard that it often was around 1000. That’s a lot of people watching other people play old games!
Anyway, the Speed Gamers’ next marathon will be with Metal Gear games in June, and a Final Fantasy marathon in July, also for charity. If you like those games, then mark your calendars!
