Kick Off the New Year with Mega Man-athon 2!

Do you like Mega Man? (If not, then why are you here?) Do you like helping out charitable causes? (If not, then what would Mega Man think?) Do you like music? (...sorry, we got nothing). If you answered "yes" to at least one of these questions, then read on!

From January 2nd to January 5th, 2014, Mega Man-athon 2 will take place at MAGfest 12. For 72 hours, the folks from Half Empty Energy Tank will be playing a variety of Mega Man games in order to raise money for Child's Play.

What's more, for as little as a one dollar donation, you can walk away with a big bundle of music. Check out the bundle tiers:

Tier 1: $1

Plus, whoever donates the most will receive a copy of the original Mega Man for the NES, autographed by none other than Keiji Inafune! Meanwhile, the top 10 contributors will get a signed remastered poster of the American Mega Man 2 cover by Marc Ericksen, and the top 30 will get a Half Empty E-Tank sticker.

While the marathon doesn't officially begin until January 2nd, you can still get your music bundle now, with 50 percent of those donations going to Child's Play. Then you can tune in for the gameplay streamed live from MAGfest at either megamanathon.com or halfemptyetank.com.
