Denville, NJ, United States – September 15, 2010
On November 26th, the first annual Mass Effect Marathon video game marathon will set out to play Mass Effect, have fun, and donate money to the Child’s Play Charity. Visitors are encouraged to come watch a team of gamers play through Mass Effect 1 & 2, and donate money through the site to Child’s Play, a charity that donates over a million dollars to Children’s Hospitals worldwide every year.
The Mass Effect Marathon is a video-gaming marathon broadcast live on the internet by g33kWatch, a group of gamers who provide news and podcasts about the geek community. For three days straight, the group will be playing Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 consecutively. Mass Effect is a series of games developed by BioWare, and distributed by Electronic Arts. They follow the adventures of Commander Shepard as he travels the galaxy, fighting against the villainous Collectors and Reapers. Throughout the game, players are present choices of morality that determine whether Commander Shepard is viewed as a Paragon, or Renegade.
Viewers are asked to donate money via the masseffect.g33kwatch.com website, and as the dollar total rises, the players will change the final outcome of the games. Donations will actually determine what the final game ending will be when the marathon is completed. Viewers are encouraged to participate by e-mail, Twitter, or by live internet chat, where they can ask questions of the players, make requests, vote in online polls that will determine how the games are played, and entering to win prizes. To view the gaming marathon, donate money, or find more information, please visit masseffect.g33kwatch.com.
