GamesRadar's second annual 24 hour gaming marathon [UPDATE: It's on!]

Hey guys, let's play some games, again!

UPDATE: We've begun! Check out the live feed, take a pass at the schedule, and join us!

Please note that because XBL friends lists have a 100 friend maximum, we will be clearing them out off and on throughout the event.

Gamertags and PSN IDs

So how are you going to join us in our quest to screen burn our eyeballs? This is how! Please note that, as Xbox Live only allows 100 friends, we'll likely clear out our Gamertag's friends lists before the event, so adding us now probably isn't going to help. Just take note, and we'll update you as we get closer to the event.
