Friday, 12 March 2010 at 21:37 GMT

There's still plenty of info coming out from Sakamoto-san's GDC keynote - check out a great interview at Joystiq and CapCom from the MDb's notes from the talk itself.

We've also been told of a gaming Metroid marathon about to take place over at TheSpeedGamers. Here's the details straight from the source:

We, TheSpeedGamers, are based in the DFW Texas area and play video games to raise money for different causes. We will have been together for two years this coming Saturday and have raised approximately $125,000 for various causes.

Our events typically last 72 hours continuously in which we broadcast ourselves over the internet playing video game franchise's to their completion while also providing video commentary. There is a chat room that accompanies the video game feed so that the viewers can interact with the players and other viewers. Everything can be viewed on TheSpeedGamers.com.

During the Metroid marathon we will be raising money for Halton Autistic Family Support Group.

Donations will be gathered using a chip in widget; debit, credit cards and paypal can be used to donate.

Game List (Order TBD):

  • Metroid (NES VC)
  • Metroid Zero Mission (GBA)
  • Super Metroid (Snes)
  • Metroid 2 (GB)
  • Metroid Prime Hunters (DS)
  • Metroid Prime 1-3 (GC,GC,Wii)
  • Metroid Fusion (GBA)

Additional info:

Metroid themed prizes will be given away such as games, hats, key chains and more! Our goal will be $15,000.

Drop by if you have a chance and join in!
