Dumb enough to miss our 24 Hour Marathon? Relive the magic in 3 minutes

Above: Song by the amazing Protomen. Find their site here

Take one hour, multiply it by twenty, and then add four. That’s how long we devoted ourselves to playing with our community last weekend and we did it in one straight, foolhardy shot. Those of you who didn’t join us over Steam, Xbox Live, or PSN, first of all – SHAME ON YOU! Now that you’ve sufficiently wallowed in your shame, you get to see what you missed in this here video encapsulating all our kills and cut-ups. More importantly, this is our “Thank You” love letter to the hundreds of people who joined us in the multiplayer merriment, hung out on the stream, and helped us raise almost two thousand dollars for the charity Child‘s Play. Sincere, heartfelt thanks to all of you!

    Another totally awesome marathon in the books. Thank you everyone. I would sent a friend request to everyone who participated if Microsoft got its ass and expanded the number of friends you could have. GamesRadar has the best staff and fans/community in the world!!!

    I'll get my name on that list next year, so help me dammit! Ah well, it was still all good fun and such just tuning in on the stream while playing New Vegas. Already can't wait for next year's marathon!

    My self loathing quota became filled when I discovered that I forgot about the GR 24-Hour spectactular. Thanks for the recap Chris!

    :'( I was there and I wrote my name on the initial post. And I spammed the chat and the PS3 accounts while I was able to be on and did get in MK and Blur. Oh wellz :/

    First name to show up on the screen that wasn't on the scroll? Mine. Ye-yah. Great times during the marathon (I think Tyler may be forever scarred by my suicide dash Demo wielding a katana). Only really did Hot Pursuit and TF2, but it was Of_The_Win. Glad I got to participate this year!

    What a great song. I was able to play on the first 24 hour marathon but I had to work during this year's marathon.
  • CourierSix - August 28, 2011 4:25 p.m.

    Simply put; this was really, really fun. This is also one of the greatest videos I’ve ever seen, partly because I’m in it and it features one of my favourite songs ever. Thanks GR.

    I can't believe I missed it. I mean... I... I feel sad. :( I feel like I missed on the coolest party in the world.

  • EDfromRED - August 28, 2011 4:24 a.m.

    Great time! Loved every second spent playing and/or watching the stream. P.S. My gamertag was misspelled in the video it's: EDfromRED, no biggie : )
  • ProfessorChief - August 28, 2011 2:27 a.m.

    It was great to take part in this. I had a blast playing and watching the stream. Can't wait to do it again next year!
  • RamenDragon - August 28, 2011 12:21 a.m.

    Outside forces unfortunately prevented me from participating this year, but this video really makes me wish I had found a way. Also Protomen works perfectly.
  • practicallyhitler - August 28, 2011 12:12 a.m.

    GamesRadar beats so much Goddamned ass it's not even funny... (except it's really funny). I'll never forget soaking my shirt in tears of laughter as Chris played 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. Thanks so much for this guys. You're amazing!
