Harnessing the power of Nintendo franchises for charity, the folks at TripleSpeedRunners
will be spending 48 hours this weekend speed-running through games from the Donkey Kong
, Star Fox
, and Kirby
series. Live streaming of the event will be handled on the crew's website, with live commentary and chat available to cheer the players -- or jeer 'em if you're a player hater.
All proceeds from donations during the event will go to DC Outreach
, an organization that provides worldwide support to families affected by Dyskeratosis Congenita. Last time TSR got together, it raised $1,140 for the DC charity, but we know with the full support of the Joystiq BioMass behind them we can help them double that. Right, folks?
The speed-runs kick off this Friday at 7PM ET sharp.
