Long time no see!
Welcome to Sonic Marathon 5.
The Sonic Marathon is a yearly tradition here at Respawn Point, every December we gather together and set aside an entire week with one shared goal: to raise some money for charity while bashing our heads against as many Sonic the Hedgehog games as we possibly can. The marathon runs for 7 days straight starting December 27th with no breaks. We're all fans of the Sonic franchise here, and while we'll be sure to suffer through a few of the more notorious games the highs of the better entries are worth it.
Sadly last year life got in the way of our plans and after missing out on last year we're back on track and ready to tackle this challenge one more time. We'll be playing every main line sonic game and as many side games we can squeeze in. You can find the complete list further down below.
This year the charity of choice is Special Effect, they work with people suffering from physical disabilities that would otherwise stop them from playing video games and do their best to come up with creative solutions that enable them to enjoy this wonderful hobby we all take for granted. They're a great group of people that do fantastic work and are passionate about what they do.
Sit back, watch, chat, donate and enjoy! It's always a fun event for all, thank you for dropping by!
More information about Special Effect's mission can be found here!
We will be playing every significant Sonic game on both consoles and handheld systems. You can see what games we will definitely be tackling during the marathon by clicking on the image to the right. This doesn't mean that any of the side games are being ignored mind you! We'll be fitting them in whenever we have a spare minute inbetween main games so you Sonic R fans out there have nothing to worry about.
We'll also be playing some All-Stars Racing Transformed with the chat room at certain points throughout the marathon so make sure you drop by for that, it's always good fun. We will be sure to give fair warning before hand so nobody misses out on a chance at a game or two!
Last time we got around to doing one of these marathons the chat room banded together and recorded a bunch of covers of classic Sonic tunes. It was a hell of a lot of fun to see and after all was said and done we just had to collect them together. You can find the community album by clicking the album art!
Who knows, perhaps there'll be a sequel one day?
