Hello all you fellow TSG followers! Zach2m1 here and I wanted to ask all of you what was your favourite part of the Mother Marathon? It truly was one of my favourite marathons. For me it would defiantly be in my top 5 favourite TSG marathons. We raised over $10,000, had many amazing laughs and overall had a great time! Now for me my favourite part of the Mother Marathon for me is when Rust (Rusted) the commentator was taking donations around 1 am EST and for every person who donated he would put on a new mask. And I have to say I really enjoyed that part. I found it really funny how I donated Ninboy and you guys were all freaking out and while Rust was pretending to drink out of that syrup bottle he drew. Lol I know it may have seemed cruel of me to do that but it was a very good way to get donations, :lol:
Well now I would like to hear your favourite part of the Mother Marathon 2009.

My all time favorite part was the auction. Anything that's so intense and full of surprises that can also raise over $2000 for charity has to be my favorite part.

Phil wets his bed!

...nah, that one was good, but the chat being flooded with USE HEALING GAMMA for like 20 minutes straight had me in a hysterical fit. BTW, I missed it because I had to go to sleep, but did they finish that Earthbound playthrough after all?

Runner-up would be the guy who ninja'd only one dollar at the end of one of the auctions, and he incidentally left a comment on my latest YouTube video, which is a marathon debriefing of sorts. Can't decide which auction was better, this one or the ones with Rayquaza and Cresselia in the Pokémon marathon.

People were mean to ninboy. how dare you zach....

I loved the game playing. People pay too much attention to the commentary; many forget that they are even playing the games. lol I loved when Chugga pwned Mother 2. I am not even close to a Chugga fanboy, seeing as how I only know him from the marathons, but he really soared through the game. I also loved seeing Dwaggie crack some jokes in the chat, Gwellin prompting me to get Okami, which I have been looking to buy all over since the marathon, and just overall watching Gwellin, Chase, theBaltes, and Phil because they are awesome.

My favorite part was the resident Mother fanboys screaming at the gameplayers in chat(who granted, sometimes did very stupid things). _awesome_

Also, I loved Baltes commentary and feel sorry for the poor guy and his hair. :(

Quite frankly, other than Chugga destroying Earthbound, it's been... I wouldn't say lackluster, but not quite up to par with Pokémon and Zelda. As I said in the comments to the latest front page post, RPGs aren't exactly the most friendly games to watch, and Pokémon escaped that rule because it was handled differently.

Man, it's so hard to choose where I would put this marathon in my list. The Pokemon marathon was my first, and probably my favorite, but the Zelda marathon started the whole "I love Whitemage730" thing :lol: and EB was amazing! But I missed the end, which apparently had all the best parts :( I was at school, then an Orchestra concert that lasted until 10... My friend texted me and said "They got 9000!" and I was bumbed that I wasn't there. then he said that you guys got over 10,000 and I felt really good and bad at the same time, if you get it.

But all in all it was amazing. My favorite part was Gwellin's commentating and Chugga's epic speed run.

I loved the marathon. RPGs are fine in my book, judging from how the marathon went. Personal favorite marathon.

The bit that made me laugh most was the one liners that were being said on the first night, I hadn't laughed so much in ages :lol: Because of school I missed the ending auction so I don't know how awesome that was.

Would you want to sleep by chase :lol:
My favorite part was probably the auction at the end it was very exciting. I was a little disapointed I was not able to stay awake untill very early in the morning because that is the best time because then the comentator can actually read your comments and respond to them.

05-19-2009, 04:57 PM
lets see:

i can give u a couple:

Donating my money to a very very good cause....no i'm not rich... just saving for this event....

Getting donations to 10,000.... best marathon ever

watching tsg commentators do crazy things - rust and vegimite...
baltes- who hopefully we will see a bald commentator for the next marathon

I found the Ninboy mask to be the biggest highlight for me. This marathon wasn't as good as the first Mother marathon mostly because we weren't freaking the heck out of a huge corparation :lol: .

SuperPaperNess
05-19-2009, 05:12 PM
My absolute favorite was definately all of the questions and spam about chugga. /sarcasm

To be real, I just loved proving Baltes wrong about reaching $10,000 and just the overall commentary by everyone. Another great marathon for the record books, great job.

05-19-2009, 06:19 PM
The whole marathon was BEASTMODE, how can I pick just one moment?

But I would have to say when Tyler was giving all those puns for hints, I was laughing like crazy at that point.

Well, some of my favorite moments:

Gwellin commentating.
Sonic62 was kicked by the Baltes-Bot.
Aeronautical gave Sonic62 this link (http://www.thespeedgamers.com/faq#can-i-be-op) when the Auto-OP wasn't working.
Somebody over at TSG Rickrolling everyone.
Getting screen shots of the commentators (except Ferenc) in weird poses.
I liked helping out by posting the following:

This whole marathon was awesome. I liked it when Chugga destroyed Mother 2/ Earthbound. Also hitting the landmark $10,000 in donations was also awesome. The other part that was so much fun was when everyone in the chat was freaking out about the insane amounts people were donating for the auction.

the1stpkmnfan
05-19-2009, 07:18 PM
My favorite part(s) marathon? Well let's see:

-Raising over $10000 Smackaroonies!
-Chase eating worms
-I got to see Gwellin, Rust, Fettouhi, Baltes, Phil, Chase, Britt, commentate.
-The auctions were so awersome, they're like Donation Magnets. We should do those more often.
-Rust's wonderful world of Varity Masks (one including a Ninboy and Local Mask)
-The marathon extended.
-Chuggaacongroy playing Earthbound
-All the Chat OPs, Mods, Admins, and Viewers
-The Fan Art
-BANJO FETTOUHI!

Favorite parts of the marathon eh? I got quite a few of those.
-"Phil wets the bed"
-Rust and his many masks
-The auctions were fun and tense
-Staying up all night to watch Mother 1, my favorite Mother game.
-Chase eating worms
-"lol He ate them! lololol~"
-The scorpion on a brownie
-Donating and sending some fanart of course
-The To infinity and Bernard joke
-And probably many other things

Yuso
05-19-2009, 09:42 PM
Hmm..
Let's see.
I actually laughed at the moments where everyone would spam like in EB when everyone would spam "Fuzzy Pickles" or when the donations totalled over $9000.. yea I need not quote that.
The memorable Infinity and Bernard joke..
and what really turned my head was Blackduck reciting the 100 decimals of pi.. it kept me like o_O
Rust put up a good show with the masks and of course the insect eating.. heh.
I can't wait for the next one!

Ruju
05-19-2009, 09:55 PM
Hmmm x3 So many

Donating and sending in fan art for the first time.

Making friends in the chat and asking the host questions.

The auction. Oh man, that was so intense. People putting in donations at the last second.

Baltes egging everyone on near the end in the chat. Shouting "10000! YOU CAN'T DO IT!" But we did x3

Lol also, people do make a point that the chat and comm are watched a lot and not the game, but I thought it looked really cool. I've never played any of the games before, but one time I remember looking at the feed of the game and just seeing people around a camp fire, and a character picked up a stick from the fire and started beating the other characters with it. I had never laughed so hard.

It was just a great time. MGS marathon is going to be difficult, cause I'll want to watch the game, chat AND comm all at the same time x3

Really, just a great experience. Glad I was a part of it.

I unfortunatly had to miss a lot of the marathon, but what I did see I loved!

Who was it who was singing that Pokemon Team Rocket song at one point? I can't remember names well, but I liked that part it was funneh.
The whole Deep Fryed thing was kinda funny (at least at first)
I missed the eating worms thing, but saw it on Youtube! That was great! |D
Rust's Masks thing was funny!
Watching the Game being played was fun! I liked watching the game and listening to the comentator at the same time.
I also kinda enjoyed when they said my name wrong after I donated! wasn't surprised though, everyone gets my name wrong when they read it! |DD
AND! I really Loved talking in the Chat box after the whole Marathon was over actually. I never really could get a word in till then. Ended up talking to at least two people quite a bit, and they are Awesome!
I don't think I got off the chat till past 4 in the morning, or almost anyway.

So ya, I Loved a Lot of things about it. This was the first Marathon i've seen so I can't compair it to anything, so obviously it's my favorite so far! |D
Will deffinently be around for others! =D

The auction was so much fun! The intense bidding was great!
The sound of Rust slurping syrup cracked me up every time. :lol: :lol:

05-20-2009, 02:45 AM
Oh, let's see... I think Rust's masks are what stand out most in my mind, can't wait to see more of those shenanigans when MGS comes around. Unfortunately, I missed the scorpion eating along with the final auction, I managed to catch them on youtube (big thanks to those who recorded it!) I did manage to see the worm eating, that was sick... in a good way.

05-20-2009, 07:24 AM
My favorite part was the auction. Omg.. So much donations.. O_O
And when the donations went over 10000, I was really excited!! =D

...poor Baltes.. =(

(At least we found out the secret marathon and soon we are going to find out chuggaa's next LP!)

What a way to end the last few hours of the marathon!

05-20-2009, 08:04 AM
The part where I`d come in to ask the most random questions in the world!

BlueBlazer
05-20-2009, 08:12 AM
Hmm, I'd say it was either Rust putting faces on his face, Rust drinking the vegemite/syrup combo, or Paul's joke. :lol:

And the part that we raised 10,000 dollars! :D

its okay, it seems like the OPs were super tired, but they pulled through and still put out the ban hammer on a lot of people, or at least kicking wise.

Triforce Saturn
05-20-2009, 03:07 PM
Oh, now where did I put my list.... ah! Here we are.

-Team Rocket theme.
-Chase eating the worms (missed it but saw it on youtube).
-Rust eating the Vegemite and syrup combination, plus the whole mask thing.
-Chugga's destruction of EarthBound. Fastest I've ever seen it live.
-The Auction. So fast paced, it was great!
-Baltes being proved wrong and having to shave his head ;)
-Paul and "To Infinity and Bernard." Pure classic :lol:
-Everyone absolutely freaking out over the clues
-http://www.postimage.org/aV1UvZ2r.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aV1UvZ2r) (made by me :mrgreen:)

Also, I also had my fair share of certain moments I shared with some of my friends on the chat.
-Making makeshift Peanut Cheese Bars (made from peanut butter spread of cheddar cheese slices). They tasted so weird. I can see why Mr. Saturns like them :P
-Making my fan art. It certainly took a while; almost the entire marathon. (Fred would know)
-WESS DANCE! :D
-Personally freaking out over all the stuff Rob was doing wrong, without knowing he was doing it for the first time XP
-Geeking out after the consideration it could be a Banjo-Kazooie marathon (I love that series so much).
-ABSOLUTELY FREAKING OUT after hearing that Chugga will reveal his next LP on Monday.
-Over 9000 references all over the place
-Overall having a great time. This has been the first marathon I've been to the entire time.

This is, by far, my favorite marathon so far. Even more than the last Zelda marathon, and Zelda is my absolute favorite video game series! And $10,000!? That's just too amazing. My thanks and congratulations to all the OPs, Mods, and every Speed Gamer. Until the Metal Gear marathon!

First day. On the last day he misclicked again and offered to kick himself for retribution.

Also the banhammer had been pretty lenient. Hundreds of kicks, yet only 13 permanent bans. Maybe another dozen 15-minute bans or something.

But hey don't get on my case I am a good op right? o.O Well besides that I think I did pretty well. Oh and it didn't help that the chat was moving really fast though. Trying to kick while tired+ fast moving chat= a 20% chance of zach2m1 trying to kick him self. But don't think any less of me because of this.....unfortunate event. :|

My favorite was racing against Chugga and still getting destroyed by him :D. But another fantastic part was when we reached over $10,000, I practically cried tears of joy, it was amazing to see that much raised in such a short period of time with the auctions.

Mother 3, all of it, considering Mother 3 is one of my favorite games of all times. The ending was really sad.

But Phil wetting his bed was pretty epic.
