Extra Life 2013 Is Upon Us!

Tomorrow is the day! Starting at 9am, I will be joining Liore – and other gamers around the world – as we game for 25 straight hours (thanks, Daylight Savings Time!) to raise money for our local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. I’ll be streaming the whole thing (or, at least, whatever I can) over on my Twitch.tv channel. Thanks so much to everyone for your generous donations! Team Totally Legit Publishing has now raised over $1000! That’s really amazing! Of course, every bit helps, so if you haven’t donated but still would like to, please click on the link below.

Now, if you’re wondering what you can expect on my stream, then I have to say – that is a very good question! I’ve been collecting some requests and making some promises to donors, and so far I have the following lined up:

  • Fallout: New Vegas – I think I’ve bitched enough about how hard it is to get into some of the modern open-world games, Vajra convinced me on the last podcast that this is something I should really give another shot. He’s hooked me up with a number of mods and I am going to stumble across the post-apocalyptic wasteland for a few hours on his behalf.
  • Magic: The Gathering Online – Mangle has requested Theros drafting, and who am I to argue? I expect that I will do at least one Swiss draft, and possibly more, depending on how tired I get. Thinking about Magic is a lot of work! Plus, this is a good way to block out a couple of hours.
  • The Stanley Parable – This game just looks like something excellent to do when my brain is already tired. I was totally sold after seeing the Let’s Play-style trailer, so I immediately purchased it and saved it for Extra Life.
  • Electronic Super Joy – Thumping techno beats, and hardcore platforming? YES, PLEASE! This seems like the perfect 4am pick-me-up.
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link – I have been noodling around with a replay of the original Legend of Zelda, but Telaan convinced me that I should play this one, instead. She’s a donor, and it’s a good suggestion, so I’ll find a way to work it in.
  • A Special Rant About Internet Kittens – Okay, so this isn’t a game. Or maybe it is! In either case, Aurelia has both complimented and baffled me by suggesting that I could righteously rant about nearly any subject, and her donation came with a request to discuss this very subject. I will do my best! I cannot say when this will happen, since one needs to be in the proper mindset for these sorts of things.

And that’s just a sampling. I have a ton of games on my Steam list, many of which I haven’t even started. This is always a good opportunity to give some of those games a shot. Please, stop by and say hi! I’ll have a trip report on the other side. After some sleep, of course.
