The Big Questions.


Just to get it out of the way, this here is the post that explains all about what we're doing. I'll tackle the questions in the standard order.

I created a page just for that! C'mon now, get your head in the game: Bio.

Now we're getting somewhere. What we're planning to accomplish is a 25 hour gaming marathon. This will encompass different games and consoles that have been released in the last 25 years. Huh, the number 25 has cropped up a fair bit hasn't it? I wonder if that'll be explained in a future question!

A period of 25 hours starting at 5pm on Saturday the 16th of March. Holy cats, that's tomorrow!

At my humble home in the city of Portsmouth, on the south coast of England, in the Northern Hemisphere of the planet Earth, in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy. Don't believe me? Check out the LiveStream!

Ah, now that's the real question. The short answer being...

Yeah, this isn't just an exercise in geekery, we're doing it for a good cause. Comic Relief to be exact. 2013 is the 25th anniversary of their first big Red Nose Day fundraising event. As a result, many people elected to do 25-hour challenges, including comedian Mark Watson whose epic 25 hour stand-up comedy show was the inspiration for this gamefest.

Anyway, that's that out of the way. Check back soon for more info, including a list of the games we plan to play!
