Story

The Sick Kids hospital in Edinburgh is where I had my tonsils out when I was very young, and its game room was my first brush with videogames. I'm now a game critic by trade and I think that early experience was when I first fell in love with the medium. My parents had to drag me out of there constantly when visiting. Sorry folks.

I've decided to play scrolling beat-up-up games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Golden Axe and more for 24-hours on December 14 at 11am, to 11am December 15. It's hands-down my favourite genre. 

The Sick Kids hospital is a wonderful thing and I really hope to hit my target for them. With your help I can make it happen.

My entire gameplay marathon will be streamed over on Twitch at http://www.twitch.tv/fastrez.

You can check out the list of games I'm playing over at my blog at http://thecbook.wordpress.com/

Many thanks for stopping by guys.
