GamesRadar 24 hour marathon: Aug 19-20

Got plans on August 19? Feel like ending the summer with an unholy binge of video games, horrendous junk food and unhealthy sleep deprivation? Then you, fine sir or madam, need to prepare thine ass for GamesRadar’s third annual 24 hour marathon, beginning at 5pm PST 8/19 and running until 5pm 8/20. Jump in and play with us, plus be on the lookout for giveaways from 6pm to 11pm Friday night!

If you’re interested in watching our mental state slowly deteriorate as we mindlessly plug away at game after game, follow us on Twitter and YouTube, plus check our live stream via JustinTV.
