Sonic-a-thon for Child’s Play ongoing, ends on Aug 20th

maxresdefaultWell this hasn’t been posted yet, so I’m here to correct that mistake! HellfireComms as well as guests like folks from BrainScratchComms and others will be playing various Sonic games until August 20th, check it out the livestream HERE!

Right now as I type they’re playing Sonic the Hedgehog 3 while playing as Knuckles with SomeCallMeJohnny playing and Ryan co-commentating.

As well the total donated as I type is at US $11,458.41 with 811 contributions!

Missed the previous games? Worry not! HellfireComms is archiving them on their YouTube channel, so far the games archived are:

Sonic Adventure DX (GC), Sonic Rivals, Sonic Spinball, Shadow the Hedgehog (GC), and Sonic the Fighters (Arcade).

Hop on over, enjoy some great games being streamed (and some not so good games ;) ), and consider donating for a great cause! Chances are, if you have a game you want to see, it’s going to be streamed, check out the schedule on the livestream site above. :)

I want to wish all involved the BEST of luck and keep up the amazing work!

Sonic Center Running Sonic Marathon for Charity

With charity streaming the in thing right now, members from Sonic game superplay site The Sonic Center are joining the fun with their own marathon.

Taking place over six days, the TSC Charity Marathon will be playing through a buttload of Sonic games, along with Sonic Team classic Ristar and the NiGHTS series, in aid of the game-oriented children’s charity Child’s Play. If you want to support a good cause, be there and consider donating or spreading the word.

Also taking place on Friday will be open lobbies for Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing and Sonic 4 Episode 2‘s co-op mode – both on Xbox 360 – and Puyo Puyo VS 2, a Windows sim for the series that included Dr Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine. Have one of those games, and you could take part live on stream.

The Sonic Center Charity Marathon starts at 7PM (UK) Tuesday 21st August, and continues to Sunday. For full scheduling, see the stream channel.

Sonic Child’s Play Fundraiser Stream

It’s always great to see the many ways the Sonic community celebrates Sonic’s Birthday. Deviant Art artist Sonic Dash is marking the special occasion for our favourite video game icon by helping to raise money for Child’s Play, which is a charity organisation that aims to make the lives of children in hospitals a little better with the gift of video games.

Sonic Dash will be livestreaming on June 23rd for 24 hours and will continue through the 24th if the stream is successful. Throughout that time Sonic Dash will be creating more of his impressive art pieces and by donating a certain amount of money (yet to be defined) you’ll get a copy of the PSD files of the pictures designed, sketches and another piece created by a mystery artist.

For more details, read Sonic Dash’s journal entry below:

Schedule

I will color at least two Sonic related pictures (one is a Rouge pic), sketch Sonic pics and take sketch requests. It’s even possible that I’m going to color a few of your requests or some of my WIP’s. Of course I will entertain your ears with music from the Sonic games.

Time Schedule

I will start live streaming on thursday, june 23rd. No specific time, but I’ll make a journal before I start. From then on I’m going to stream for 24 hours straight. I’ll continue for another 24 hours if the stream is successful enough and after I took a little break. ~CyanZack will entertain you with Sonic games until I come back for more.

I know most of you will not be able to donate something on these two days, being it close to the end of june and at least one convention around the corner. That’s why the ChipIn for Child’s Play and the fundraising for Red Cross will stay open until sometime in july. My ChipIn will stay open until july 15th and I’m going to make short streams from june 25th to july 15th.

Unfortunately my Livestream can only have 50 people watching. Also please be aware that I can’t stream or have to stop due any emergency (It’s thunderstorm season, for example).

Donation Pack

It will include PSD files of pictures I color on that day, some sketches and a picture by an awesome artist that likes Sonic games but does other stuff. You’ll receive it after july 15th, though only if you are willing to donate a minimum amount.

Respawn Point Holding Sonic Marathon For Child’s Play Charity

A group of gamers from Respawn-Point (namely Zack, Nathan, Dan and Damien) are holding a Sonic gaming marathon in which they are raising money for the Child’s Play charity by playing nearly every game in Sonic’s library non-stop for 7 days. The event kicked off on December 27th and will run until January 3rd in the New Year, so there is still plenty of time to tune in and get involved. For a donation as little as $3 you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a Sonic game, of which one of the titles being given away is Sonic Colours (PAL version).

The guys are hoping to raise at least $500 total and are already well on their way with $203 raised at the time of this article. To take part, head over to the website. You can donate via the widget on the page there using PayPal.
