Next week, game speedrunning collective TheSpeedGamers are kicking off a week-long marathon of speeding through tons of games bearing the Final Fantasy name, from Final Fantasy I all the way through XIII-2, and some sideline games as well. For this event, the group are collecting donations for ACT Today!, an autism treatment and support charity. Thanks to their most excellent choice of choosing to run games of which we cover many, we here at CoN are all on board to help them reach their fundraising goal.

Starting on 24 June, the group will begin running through the Final Fantasy games, and the runs will continue day and night through 1 July. During that time, you can watch the stream and even send in donations direct from the CoN homepage as we work with them to hit their $15,000 fundraising goal. In fact, we've already gotten the ball rolling by sending in a pre-marathon donation from the CoN staff!

The schedule will be coming soon, so you can look out for your favorite game in the series to crop up. It appears that the very first game to be played will be Final Fantasy VIII starting at 6pm American Central time, with other games filling in after based on gamer availability. In the meantime, start thinking about what sorts of donations you might be able to chip in, because every little bit helps and TSG have been great to work with (and because hey, it's never a bad idea to show what a great, if small, community CoN is!).

Hopefully some of you have contributed so far - they destroyed their original goal early Friday morning, and so they've now doubled it for a reach goal. You should definitely tune in for some of the games we cover!

Watched this and managed to catch Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy VII.

It was very entertaining to watch and I can't wait for their upcoming marathons. Though I didn't donate as I was unsure to know if the money was really going to them or the charity like they say.

Shame you missed out on the donations, then. As you can see from the charity's Facebook page, they were definitely on board. Also, you can trust CoN to not steer you wrong as well. smile.gif
