While this entry is being posted a few days early, we have BIG news for the event! First, and foremost, we are still using our UStream page to broadcast our gaming, but we will be showing the video here as well! We have other details to reveal which should improve your viewing greatly from last year, so please, feel free to click and read more!
We are now in our last week before the big event, and now it’s time to bring in the as much as we can for the event. But it is also time to explain a little bit of our plans. As with last year, we will be broadcasting via Ustream and you are welcome to watch us play as well as comment. However, since last year we have had the good fortune of upgrading the laptop doing the recording so it can actually run descent resolutions without overheating, so we should be able to broadcast in high def.
And we also now have a list of games to expect. Of course no list is final as we can be persuaded mid-day, but since Blizzard and Trion have been so kind to the Extra-Life event, we will be planning on some Diablo 3 and Defiance.
But now is the time… let’s get our last efforts in and use this to do some good for the kids.
About a year ago in the name of keeping October spooky, I picked up and reviewed Amnesia: The Dark Descent. To put it bluntly, the game completely floored me and I found myself quickly putting it up as the game all horror games should strive to reach. So when I found out a sequel was in the works, I couldn’t be more excited about it! If they had released this game at full price, I would have bought it at launch. As soon as the pre-order was announced for $15, I snapped it up on Gog.com. And now as I sit here having finished the game, I’m not sure this new romp into madness was even worth that.
Ok, it’s now reaching crunch time. Extra Life is almost here, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest one yet! So my question for you, if you are a gamer (and if you visit this site, you probably are), why aren’t you here with us? Seriously, think about that question for a second. On Nov. 2nd, gamers the world over will let loose on their couches, in front of their PCs, around the kitchen table, and in various halls for 25 hours of nonstop gaming time with friends, family, online, and anywhere they are… and this will happen in the name of helping kids who are seriously sick. We have a chance to do what we love, and help out someone who really needs it in the process. Why not be a part of that?
