Zeldathon: St. Jude Opens Today!

Posted on December 27, 2013 by Daisuke909

Everyone here at Zelda Eternity loves a good Zelda marathon. We should know, we do them. The folks over at Zeldathon will be beginning their tenth charity livestream at 4PM Eastern Time on the 27th of December, raising money for charity while playing Zelda games for 120 straight hours. If you are reading this before 4PM, that means you can tune in right now to watch their 4 hour countdown at zeldathon.net.

The charity this time around is St. Jude Children’s Hospital, to which 100% of the money raised by donations will go.

During the marathon, we will look forward to crazy donation challenges, with rewards such as the crew slapping each other in the face repeatedly, and men dressing up as the great fairy from Ocarina of Time.

Here’s their original trailer:

New to Zeldathon is the “Second Quest” livestream, which will sometimes feature video of the players on the couch, and at other times games that are harder to record or are less fun to watch. This second stream will also feature some surprises that the team has yet to reveal.

It’s worth mentioning that they will be playing, for one of the first times on livestream, some of the newest Zelda titles like The Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds. There will also be some of the less appreciated titles, like Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil.

Be sure to head on over to zeldathon.net to watch, donate, and, if you’re broke, spread the word!

Hey, Zelda Eternity readers! If you’ve been around the internet recently, you’ve probably heard of Youtube a capella VGM sensation, Smooth McGroove. What has he pulled out from under his epic beard this time? Nothing short of an arrangement of the Lost Woods theme from A Link to the Past! Take a listen below!

Additionally, it seems that Master McGroove is pulling out all the Zelda stops today, holding a stream of the newest entry to the Zelda series, A Link Between Worlds. If you got the game today and want to play along with the man with the voice of a god (sorry Elias), jump on over to this link and give him a view. Be warned, however, given the unedited nature of this stream, it’s bound to be spoiler-tastic. To the spoiler-phobic, beware!

As always, have a great day, ZE fans! Weegee, out.

Zeldathon: Headstone for a Hero at Full Swing

Posted on October 5, 2013 by Daisuke909

The gents over at zeldathon.net recently began their newest Zelda marathon livestream. For another 30 or so hours, they will be playing Zelda games live, notably the newly released Wind Waker HD. They are raising money for a recently passed local hero. All donations under the goal will go to his gravestone, and all those over will go towards creating a music scholarship in his name.

Zelda For Eternity IV: Wrapping Things Up

Posted on August 1, 2013 by Skermefaten

Another year, another fun marathon. Personally, this year I wasn’t as focused on the size or uniqueness of it, but rather if everyone had a good time and if money was raised. Because that’s what truly decides the success of our marathon. And it’s why we at ZE come back every year and stream days worth of Zelda.

I can easily say this year was loads of fun, and we raised a notable amount for Child’s Play Charity. And, like every year, there are many memories worth sharing. I’ve added a new section to the one and only Zelda For Eternity Vault Page for this year’s marathon, which includes hilarious images and “ZE Memes” to go along with the memories from Zelda For Eternity IV.

As for the length, the marathon officially ran for over 120 hours, with a bonus of Super Smash Bros. Brawl at the end. Though shorter than last year, we were able to stream Spirit Tracks and the Master Quest version of Ocarina of Time, both appearing for the first time in Zelda For Eternity history.

Also, a big thanks goes out to:
Mike (hammerbromike)
AkiraZXE (Joey)

As well as Zelda Dungeon and Zelda Universe for advertising.

With all that said, I’d like to also give a special thank you to the viewers who stuck around for the whole show.

Hope to see you all at our next stream!

Hyrule HustlersIf 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!
