Okay, lets cut to the chase, we love games, you love games. Were fans of the Tales Series, youre fans of Tales series. So why not make a difference by playing something that we all know and love?
Let me tell you a little bit about us. We are the Crossroad Gamers, a group of gamers from Indianapolis who will be raising money for various charities via streaming live non-stop marathons of video games being played. This includes, for the viewers, interacting with a live chat with the commentators and gamers about the games we're playing and the cause we're raising money for. Just like how running a marathon to raise money, we will be doing the same with different games each time. Some games will have a connection with the charity sometime in the future if this does well.
Our first marathon will be doing the Tales series from Namco Bandai. We are setting the tentative date for the speed game on June 10th-17th, 2011
. Our goal is to raise $1,500 to donate to the Ronald McDonald House.
What does that mean for you as a fan, you ask? As we hit a certain amount of donations, we will be giving away prizes, such as Tales Merchandise and Pre-Registered Passes to Anime Crossroads, a con located here in Indianapolis, IN. Along with prizes for those who donate to a cause or doing funny request for donations (like a silly dance or song), we are doing this all for a good cause and giving back to the community.
We will also be having a little Sneak Peak Run on March 12th-15th, 2011 at 5PM Eastern Time
</i>, where we are making sure that everything runs smoothly also play a couple different games that we might be doing marathons for in the future. All donations during the Sneak Peak Run are optional however; if we reach $100, we will give a prize to a lucky donator. We will announce the prize during the marathon.
Attendance and audience number is key to making this marathon a success, so please spread the word to your friends! Even if we don't make our goal, every little bit counts to help those in need, that's the most important thing. As Dwarven Vow #1 states in Tales of Symphonia, Let us work together for a peaceful world. www.justin.tv/crossroadgamers
