4/48 Marathon Blog

Three days and counting!   Posted December 23, 2013 by admin No comments

This blog has been pretty barren this year due to all the updates we’ve been making, but I wanted to make one last post summarizing everything before the marathon.

The marathon officially starts at 9:00 AM EST on Friday, December 27. Our play order is Skyward Sword, Majora’s Mask, The Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess, Link’s Awakening, The Wind Waker HD, A Link to the Past, Adventure of Link, and finally, Ocarina of Time. Of course this might change, depending on how exhausted people are at certain times. If we raise enough money to 100% a game before we start it, we’ll just do a typical 100% run, but if we reach the milestone after we start a game, we’ll go back and get all the collectibles whenever we feel is best, but before we finish OoT. In other words, we won’t stick the Master Sword in Ganon’s face until the marathon is actually over.

Finally, we’re going to be doing a lot of fun things that aren’t really written down on the website. For one, we have at least six marathon-flavored shirts, designed by the team, that we’ll be giving away during the event. Additionally, we’ll be doing varous challenges in exchange for donations, things like the cinammon challenge, and eating habanero peppers and whole onions. We’ll also be taking requests.

All of us on the team are really excited to be doing this again, and we can’t wait to get started. Feel free to post a comment here or on our facebook group if you have questions, but otherwise we’ll see you Friday morning!
