Below you’ll find details of how the marathon will work, information about DC Outreach and why we’ve chosen them, and the game list as it’s revealed. Don’t forget to check out our many prizes as well!

Why DC Outreach?

DC Outreach is a charity of special significance to TSR. Dyskeratosis Congenita Outreach, Inc. is a volunteer-operated foundation serving families affected by a rare disease called Dyskeratosis Congenita (DC). Their mission is to provide information and support services to families affected by DC worldwide, to encourage the medical community’s research in finding causes and effective treatments, and to facilitate improved diagnosis by educating medical providers.

What is DC?
DC is a genetically inherited disorder with multiple symptoms estimated to occur in one out of one million people worldwide. 90% of cases lead to progressive bone marrow failure. DC is exceedingly rare and many doctors are unable to recognize and properly diagnose it.

Josh’s Story
Josh is an amazing 21 year old. He’s a younger brother to Matt and a great friend to everyone else in TSR. In 2006, his bone marrow started failing. After extensive testing, he was diagnosed with Dyskeratosis Congenita in July of 2007. He started taking different trial medicines to help him produce blood. He was also getting monthly blood transfusions to help keep his blood level counts from falling. The medicine ending up damaging his liver and a bone marrow transplant became a necessity.

In August of 2012, Josh received chemotherapy to completely wipe out his failing bone marrow and started his transplant. Josh was lucky enough to find a near perfect match for him and he spent the next 4 months in the hospital recovering. He’s at home now but still recovering from his transplant. His immune system is next to nothing as his body rebuilds everything like a newborn baby. His blood is even a different type now and his DNA has changed.

Josh has been unable to go out in public or do any physical activity for over a year now. His main source of entertainment is playing video games. It’s one of the main reasons we started doing marathons. We all love video games and it’s something he loves to do during this hard time for him. Your donations will go towards helping other needy families affected by DC. If you would like to learn more about DC Outreach, please Click Here to visit their website.

The Game List!

Everyone will be playing three different games this marathon. But here's the catch, we don't get to pick our own games.

Round 1 Game: Everyone in TSR drew a name out of a hat. Whatever name that was drawn, you had to pick a game for them to play. In the first drawing, we told everyone what name we got. We also told that person what game they will be playing so they can practice it.

    Evan gives Mike - F.E.A.R. (Xbox 360)
    Matt gives Mabe - Mega Man X (SNES)
    Zack gives Evan - Okami (Wii)
    Alex gives Jamey - Alan Wake (PC)
    Jamey gives DeMarcus - Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (PS3)
    Mabe gives Matt - Touhou: Imperishable Night (PC)
    Jacky gives Alex - BioShock Infinite (PC)
    Mike gives Fraley - Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii)
    Fraley gives Jacky - Metroid Prime (GC)
    DeMarcus gives Zack - Hard Reset (PC)

Round 2 Game: For the second drawing, we drew names out again, but this time it was for a secret person. Everyone has one secret person and it's a secret to everyone. We pick out a random game for that person and bring it to the marathon. The person playing the game will not know what the game is until right before they play it. It could be one of the worst games ever made, it could be an awesome game, who knows? All of the secret games will be wrapped up like a present and will be labeled "To: whoever" from their Secret Santa.

    Fraley gets The Walking Dead From Jamey
    Mabe gets Ys 1 From Fraley
    Zack gets Castlevania Order of Ecclesia from Mabe
    Evan gets Deadpool from DeMarcus
    Jamey gets Pokemon Colosseum from Zack
    Alex gets Mario 64 Star Road from Mike
    Mike gets Skyrim from Matt
    Jacky gets Tomb Raider from Alex
    DeMarcus gets DMC from Evan
    Matt gets Dust Force from Jacky

Round 3 Game: Everyone brings a random game and wraps it so nobody knows what it is. All random games will go into a pile and we will have to take our chances at picking out one present from the pile. Whatever game we pick, we have to play it after unwrapping it. We are not allowed to pick our own present.

    Mabe gets Battalion Wars from Zack
    Mike gets Minecraft from Jacky
    DeMarcus gets Dust from Fraley
    Zack gets Dishonored from Jamey
    Jamey gets Mario Party 9 from Mike
    Fraley gets The Wonderful 101 from Evan
    Alex gets Shadow of the Colossus from Matt
    Matt gets Brawl from Mabe
    Evan gets Sonic Adventure DX from DeMarcus
    Jacky gets Jillian Michaels from Alex
