If you’re one to enjoy the occasional video game stream, then boy do you have a treat for you! Hyrule Hustlers is putting on their second Zelda Marathon Friday, February 15th at 11am EST. They are collecting donations for the ever popular Child’s Play Charity and will be playing a plethora of Zelda games. Be due to swing on by, be entertained, and donate for the kids if you are able.
Additionally, our good pals over at Nintendo Castle are also holding their annual Mario marathon to celebrate their 2nd Anniversary this Friday, where there will be playing a CRAPTON OF MARIO GAMES. Who knows, you may even see some of your favorite site’s staff involved.
Both streams will surely prove to be epic, so give them both a a minute (or several) of your time and enjoy thorough entertainment as a reward!
Hey fans! You might’ve seen us talking about a stream during the holidays on our Facebook or Twitter page, so here it is! It’s a bit of short notice, but we are holding a 3 day marathon starting on Friday, December 21st at 6pm EST. This stream will be different than previous ones, however. Our streamers this year decided to pick games that remind them of this time of year. Games that they have a special memory or tradition with.
Majora’s Mask (3 heart run) – Emhave
Metroid Prime – Falcool (and his girlfriend)
Ocarina of Time – Reagan
Donkey Kong 64 – Mike
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle – Skermefaten
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance/Super Mario Sunshine – Emhave
New Super Mario Bros. Wii – Mike (and his girlfriend)
Normally I’d post timestamps, but times are bound to vary. Timestamps will be displayed on the stream page while the stream is going on.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars, everyone!
And no, a Zelda site having a stream with non-Zelda games is /not/ a sign of the apocalypse. =P
Following the third annual marathon, I mentioned how a suggestion came up that we should create a vault dedicated to holding the history of previous streams. So now, I’m happy to unveil to you all the Zelda for Eternity Vault of Memories.
Each marathon has its own section, with a collection of history, recordings, and memes created. Now that this is public, I can ask that if anyone has any recordings or sees anything missing that should be there, let us know in the comments so it can be added in.
And since we’re on the subject, we are open to any suggestions/improvements for next year’s marathon. We want to make the stream as enjoyable as possible, so if you’ve got an idea, let us know!
So this ends the Third Annual Summer Marathon here at Zelda Eternity. We were able to stretch out the stream to an astounding 130 hours and get $200 in donations to Child’s Play Charity. Even though we had our unplanned circumstances, we still successfully pulled off the marathon and completed all the games thanks to many people’s support.
Firstly, I want to thank everyone who was able to come out to the stream and stick with us through it. Hopefully we’ll see you around on the forums. And secondly, I want to especially thank all of our streamers, as well as our backup streamers who covered for certain games. The following people should be recognized for their hard work in the planning and/or playing of this stream, whether they believe they deserve this recognition or not:
Danny (lenyomaniac) and co.
(Forgive me if I’ve forgotten your name. Please.)
Thirdly, I would like to thank everyone that donated to Child Play’s Charity. I assure you, as long as we have consent, we will share the recordings of Elias’ singing and JuiceiJ’s performance soon (these both occurred after reaching certain goals in donations).
Fourthly, my appreciation goes out to the audio guests who participated this year, especially those who stayed up through the night. Without you guys the stream wouldn’t have been as entertaining.
And lastly (I hope I’m not forgetting anything), I want to thank all the sites that advertised our stream. Sites including Zelda Dungeon, Legend Zelda, Zelda Universe, Metroid Headquarters, and Nintendo Castle.
Now with that, I’d like to move on to another matter with the annual stream. We received many suggestions this year as to what to do for the future annual marathons. We’ve been taking a lot of these into consideration, as we really do want to expand and improve on this marathon. These suggestions include better planned backups, increased viewer interaction with things such as prizes, a “vault” of the sort where we store history and recordings of great moments from past streams on the actual site, and many more. All of the suggestions were great, and we will definitely work to improve this annual stream to make it a better experience for everyone.
For now, be sure to stick around the forums to keep up with the rest of the Zelda Eternity Community.
See you around, everyone!
Oh and if you want to see how long each of the 12 games took, hit the jump below.
Hello ladies and mentlegens, it is I, your friendly neighborhood Zelda Eternity Administrator, Elias, here to bring you the latest in affiliate news. What’s that? You didn’t realize I was staff? You don’t know how someone like me could even get on the staff, let alone become an administrator? You have no idea who I am? I see. Well, now you do know who I am. As to how or why I joined that staff, I could bore you with a long and boring story, but I’ll elect to leave it up to wild speculation. Let the creative juices flow. That sort of thing.
Introductions aside, I am here to tell you about somthing going on with one of our top affiliates (which is totally not a shameless plug for my other website, Metroid Headquarters, Your Source for All Things Metroid ;D). This Friday, July 13th at 8pm CDT, MHQ will be putting on their second annual Metroid marathon, entitled MHQthon 2012. In it, the dashingly handsome marathon participants (*flips buzz cut hair*), will be playing every single Metroid game in a quick fashion, trying their best to pretend they’re speed runners. Even if you’re not a fan of Metroid that much, it will be wildly entertaining. Plus you’ll get to see some of your fellow ZE brethren there in the live chat. And the streamers shall be making epic fools of themselves a good 85% of the time at the very least. It’s a good time. You should stop by.
That’s all I have for you this time around folks. I look forward to continuing to administrate ZE while posting on the site once or twice a year (going through that whole awkward “Oh, you don’t remember me? Really? But we’ve known each other for years.” type thing).
The famous Zelda Eternity marathon is returning next month, on the first of August, in fact! Watch as Zelda Eternity staff members attempt the gauntlet of playing nearly every Zelda game ever made in a timespan of five days. New to the marathon this year is the addition of Emhave to the list of players, as well as the additions of Four Swords Adventures and Skyward Sword to our playlist. In addition, returning to the marathon this year is our very own webmaster who insists I go about calling him by his preferred name, Majora’s Mask Master Mike (or MMMM, for short). Hit “read more” for more details.
The Zelda Eternity summer marathon is bearing down on us, and as of today, we here at ZE can confirm that it will be beginning sometime in August, as per tradition. When in August? It’s too early to say, but I can tell you that it lands before the school year starts for at least most of the United States of America. I can also reveal as of today that DodongoBomber and Emhave, two Zelda Eternity staff members, will be participating in the marathon this year, though that’s certainly not all of who will be streaming. Stay tuned to this site for more details in the coming weeks.
That’s it from me. Weegee, out!
To begin the hype of our annual summer stream, we are releasing three trailers over the course of the next month, each with a bit more detail than the last. The full announcement with the dates will come next month with the final trailer.
And this is definitely the definition of a teaser trailer. =P
One of our close affiliates, Nintendo Castle, is hosting a Mario Marathon right now in celebration of their one year anniversary. In it, they initially will be playing Super Paper Mario, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Super Mario Sunshine (in that order), with the high possibility of extra games such as Super Mario Galaxy 2. Plus, in-between games they’ll be playing Mario Kart Wii online, meaning you can join in on the fun too.
It’ll go until about
Sunday, so come join us at the stream and support our friends over at Nintendo Castle!
Update: The stream has been extended into Tuesday as well, so it’s not over yet!
