Watch at the Mario Marathon website!

Every year, three dudes, one dog and a whole bunch of other people come together to raise money for Child's Play Charity by playing through all the main series Mario games. They're at it for the fourth time, and this year, it's looking better than ever. There are contests, live games, applause buttons, and more.

Of course, we here at Negative World are undoubtedly the most HARDCORE Nintendo fans on the planet. And we're going to prove it by donating the most money to the Mario Marathon cause. This page has the rankings for how much money has been donated on behalf of which sites. To add to the Negative World total, just donate using this widget:

The first 500 donors will receive a free downloadable copy of SUPER MARIO: HOW NINTENDO CONQUERED AMERICA!

Remember- it's for the children!

Negative World Ranked #28

That's my birthday yo! I'll have to check it out when I arrive home nice and drunk at the end of the night.

Thanks for posting this. Kickoff isn't until 11am ET on Friday - there will be plenty of time for donations to come in beforehand and during the marathon. GREAT idea on the targeting and rank up system. Have a happy quarter century celebration Friday PogueSquadron. Game on negativeworld!

Come on guys, I think only three people donated. And I know for a fact from the Nintendo stocks thread that some of you guys are LOADED. So make an effort!

Fuck you, PayPal. I only have one credit card, and I sure as hell will not use my debit card.

Decided to tune in just now, they are at the final Bowser level on Galaxy 1.

And there's two little Toads playing along with them, how fun!

Negative World, there's still time to make a difference!

Mario 64 is going on now.

Just turned it on and all I've seen for the past two minutes is Mario stand there doing NOTHING.
Come on, marathon!

..and now he's sitting down with his eyes closed. I didn't even know that could happen...

Why is Mario sleeping?? Has anybody watched them play? I definitely appreciate what they're doing, and I like the challenge, but I've only seen Mario a) sit and b) lay down.
