The Metal Gear Marathon 2017
Kept you waiting, huh?
After somehow defeating our goal last year of $5,000 (making the total raised for Child's Play to over a cool $10K), we've been struggling to think of what we can do to make this year's Metal Gear Marathon the biggest Metal Gear-related display we can possibly display.
But I think we've managed to do it.
Over 150 straight hours of Metal Gear.
Head-to-head Metal Gear racing? We've got it! Sponsors, contests, and countless prizes? You bet! Every single Metal Gear game ever made, but of course!
(Oh really? Well what about Metal Gear Mobile? The little-known mobile game made solely for Nokia phones that came out in the mid-2000's?)
If you're asking "Did they purchase a decade-plus old phone, track down an online source to get the game installed, and devise a method of somehow live-capturing it through a process that may well be described as witchcraft?", well yes. That's exactly what we did. For you. For Metal Gear.
Here's this year's list of games, in (relative) playing order:
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PS3)
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (PSP)
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (PS3)
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PC)
Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain (PC)
Metal Gear (MSX2)
Metal Gear: Snake's Revenge (NES)
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (MSX2)
Metal Gear Solid (PS1 AND GC *RACE*)
Metal Gear Mobile (Nokia N95 8GB)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS3)
Metal Gear: Ghost Babel (Game Boy Colour)
Metal Gear Acid (PSP)
Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3)
I got tired just writing that out. But we'll be playing all of them, in one straight week. December 16th at 10AM to the 22nd at 5PM. Tell your friends!
Why are we doing this? For charity of course! We are trying to raise money for Child's Play, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with games and toys for hospitals across the world.
