Kevin Cronin's Burial Fund Game A Thon

Kevin Cronin, co-host of the Video Game Rescue podcast, passed away on 4/14 at 2am of a heart attack.

Video Game Rescue will be hosting a Game-a-Thon in his honor at the store on Saturday, 4/19 from 11am to 11pm. Since Kevin was a huge fan of both Sega and Dreamcast, those will be the two systems we will be playing to raise money for his burial and services.

ANY and ALL money that is raised on this website, and during the live Game-a-Thon at the store in Jacksonville, Florida will be directed to his immediate family members to pay for the funeral costs. 

Please donate, and help us honor an amazing friend and co-host.

Thank you so much.

Celebrating the life of Kevin “Sega Ages” Cronin

Donation will be directed to Kevin’s family to be used to pay for burial expenses. Please also see the GoFundMe page that will be used to pay for his services. Please spread the word–we would like to raise enough money to completely cover the funeral costs for his family.

Story behind the shirt

MAGFest X, the historic announcement was made bringing Nobuo Uematsu and the Earthbound Papas to the US.  Armed with a booth in the dealer’s room, our goal was to get our shirts out to the people who loved video game music.

The Earthbound Papas signatures on our first shirt.

Gathering up our items to be signed we headed out to the hallway where the signing was going to happen. Luckily, we could still hear the legendary concert! There is where we met Nobuo & the Earthbound Papas. As I approached Nobuo, he stopped to read the shirt, looked at it and stated, “I like this shirt”.

At this point we gather all of our stuff signed and head back to the hotel room. This involved a legendary walk back past the seemingly endless crowd who all gave an audible gasp at our signed guitar which is still a prized possession at 8bitX.  It was during this walk back where we determined there had to be a way to get our shirts to the Earthbound Papas.
