Donate to Child's Play charity during our 24-hour marathon!

This Friday we're sitting down for 24 consecutive hours of mulitplayer madness. As with the past two marathons, we've already encouraged you to play along and stay up as long as you can, but this time we've got one more favor to ask - donating to the Child's Play charity while we endure a full day's worth of gaming. We've set up this ChipIn widget to link to the charity's PayPal account, so rest assured any money you drop in goes to worthy cause. It's embedded below, but you can also head here to donate directly, or wait to donate once the marathon begins at 5pm PST tomorrow.

As added incentive, donating more than $50 registers you for a chance to win any five games we're playing during the marathon. That's right - you choose any five titles, 360 or PS3, from our 2011 playlist as your prize. The list below also doubles as the current marathon schedule, so take note either way:

5pm – 7pm: Call of Duty: Black Ops (360/PS3/PC)


7pm – 9pm: Super Street Fighter IV AE (360/PS3/PC) | Gears of War 2 (360)


9pm – 11pm: Gears of War 2 (360) | Killzone 3 (PS3) | Starcraft 2 (PC)


11pm – 1am: Dead Space 2 (360/PS3) | RDR: Undead Nightmare (360) | Team Fortress 2 (PC)


1am – 3am: NFS Hot Pursuit (360/PS3) | Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood (360/PS3) | Counter Strike Source (PC)


3am – 7am: Free for all! We’ll play anything on this list, plus suggestions like EDF, Dirt 3, BFBC2, Crysis 2 etc


7am – 9am: L4D2 (360/PC) | Uncharted 2 (PS3)


9am – 11am: Mortal Kombat (360/PS3) | Black Ops (360/PS3) | League of Legends (PC)


11am – 1pm: Halo Reach (360) | Super Street Fighter IV AE (PS3) | Team Fortress 2 (PC)


1pm – 3pm: Marvel vs Capcom 3 (360/PS3) | Blur (360/PS3) | Starcraft 2 (PC)


3pm – 5pm: Free for all! We finish this bastard off by playing whatever we (i.e. you) want

We don't have a set goal in mind, just whatever you can spare during the event. At the end, we'll tally up a total and then randomly select a winner from those who donated more than $50. As with most of our giveaways, the contest is open to North American residents only.

    Hm, so I donated a good chunk of change, and the thing is still sitting at $15. Wonder if it just hasn't registered yet?

    This is an awesome idea! I might be broke, but I'll fork over a bit to make you all feel better and as a goodbye to Brett.

    oh COOL! I didn't know you guys included TF2 on your marathon, what's the server you guys'll be playing on?
  • Vitreosity - August 19, 2011 12:57 a.m.

    Also, are you guys hosting a server for CoD:BO on PC? Or will it just be joining random games over Steam?
  • Vitreosity - August 19, 2011 12:51 a.m.

    Man, if I win, I am SO picking TF2 and League of Legends.

    It sucks I probably wont be able to participate in the marathon because of the small amount of sleep I'll get and stupid work but I am contributor #2 for the childs play charity which makes me feel alot better.

    @TheCakeisaPie- perfect, thanks :D
  • TheCakeIsaPie - August 18, 2011 11:45 p.m.

    jackthemenace: they're going off of Pacific time, so add eight hours for GMT. 12:00 noon equals 20:00 in UK.
  • JJBSterling - August 18, 2011 11:41 p.m.

    Donated! Excited for the marathon! Exclamation marks!
  • jackthemenace - August 18, 2011 11:36 p.m.

    You wouldn't happen to know what the UK (GMT) times re for these, would you? Because I quite fancy having a game of Reach with members of GR US :L Wait, can you even play internationally...? I'll try and chip in with anything I've got, but I can't afford $30, even for the chance at 5 games D:
