Final Fantasy Wrap-Up

It's been a little long in coming but we've got the Final Fantasy marathon's wrap-up post now. There's a lot that can be said about this marathon. First and foremost it was probably the best executed marathon we've had since the second Zelda marathon and not much went overly wrong with it. A few things did, but they don't need to be mentioned. We would like to thank Doctors Without Borders for allowing us to raise money for them once again. They have been nothing but great to work with and we definitely look forward to working with them in the future. Further we set a new donation total record for our marathons, with the total coming in at $2, 261.00 and while I'd hoped to hit the second goal of $3,000, we'll take the 2k mark and then some with pride. And everyone that was at the marathon should be filled with a sense of pride to for being part of the equation that helped us to reach that goal. Everything that watched deserves a big thank you from us and especially those of you that donated. A big hand goes out to all of you, especially Tronika who single-handedly covered the majority of that final total. We would also like to take a moment to thank some people that helped out a bit more directly with the execution of the marathon. First we would like to thank Adam, or as people more likely know him, Tailz64 from Bonus Stage Marathons for running both Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III for us. That was a lot of quality gaming for one person to be expected to do. We would also like to say a very big thank you to Essentia from Speed Demos Archive for helping us out with the on the spot planning (poor as it might have been) Final Fantasy VI race that otherwise would not have happened without her. Thank you very much for that Essentia, even if it wasn't much of a race.

As always we will be posting the complete donation list on the forums, but it probably won't be up for a little while. Once again, if you would like your name to not appear on the list or if there is another name you would like to go by, please connect us and let us know and we will get it taken care of as soon as we possibly can.

That's pretty much all that needs to be said. Keep in touch with us to see when the next marathon will be exactly, and what charity we will be raising money for. There will be a wide selection of games played and some of them will have been chosen by you, the viewers of the marathon. So we hope to see everyone again in August and maybe we'll see some new faces as well.
