Speed Gamers reports:

"The 72 Hour Metroid Marathon starts on Augusts 15th @6pm cst. We will be raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The marathon will be streamed live via webcam on our website. The webcam feed will give you both a view of the games we will be playing and also a view of the action going on in the room. We will give out prizes following each game to viewers regardless of where they live.

The Game list is : (In the order we will be playing them in, not in chronological order)
Metroid, Metroid Zero mission, Metroid II: Return of Samus, Metroid Prime1, Metroid Prime 2, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime 3, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion
[...]
Retro Studios has recently given their blessing and will be generously donating our grand prize, a copy of Metroid Prime 3 (Wii) signed by the development team. We are very excited to have their help and will hopefully do justice to the series they helped build" ( Metroid Prime, Culture, GameCube, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid Prime: Hunters, Nintendo DS, Wii)

I'm looking forward to this myself. These guys are one of the best groups in game marathons.

Metroid Prime series are the best FPS ever, beautiful soundtrack and the feeling of loneliness in the first one is priceless! Samus would sweep the floor with the Covenant in a matter of minutes.

Hope people supports this game marathon, I prefer this kind of news 1000 times over any Shane Kim, XBL fees, PSN vs XBL, new Lara Croft, Retired SONY SCEE guy, etc, etc "news"

I haven't seen any of their marathons since the original Zelda run, where "pizza money" got so ridiculously large they realized they could make it a charity event. :) I see they now have a devoted website and everything, cool. Looking forward to Metroid, it really is a great series.
