The SpeedGamers are taking on a couple of Ubisoft action platformers this weekend to help raise some money for the oil-stained Gulf of Mexico. They started up on Friday afternoon, and are running a marathon playthrough of both Assassin's Creed
and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
. As usual, you can watch the whole marathon streamed online
all weekend long, and the 'Gamers will be raising money for the Gulf Restoration Network
, which could probably use a little extra cash after all of the, you know, mess down there.
The marathon will run for three straight days, up until August 24, and as this post is written, they've already raised over $1000, and are currently auctioning off ... the chance to see a guy dressed as a Final Fantasy X
character? Listen, those SpeedGamers may be strange folks, but they're doing Altaïr's work over there. Djinn bless 'em.
