This year I have joined the fray and committed myself to the Extra Life 24 hour gaming charity marathon. My goal is to raise $1500 and if I don’t meet it then a gang of penguins will club me with fish while I try to slumber each night for eternity.
Please donate HERE… but wait, there’s more!
To gain support and donations I have raised the bar by allowing anyone who donates $50 or more to pick a game that I will play for one hour during my 24 hour marathon. This is an opportunity to get me to play your game (ex. BigRook chose their Undead Empire) or torture me by making me play a game that I don’t want to play. The only catch is that they have to run on an Xbox 360 (US/NTSC), so retail, XBLA, XBLIG, and some originals are all fair game.
Here are games I currently have lined up for my marathon (in no particular order):
- Hanna Montana (btw @esko is a jerk)
- Portal 2
- Red Dead Redemption
- Totem Ball
- Kinectimals or Viva Pinata
- Gears of War 3
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Sneak King
- 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand
On top of all of this I will be live streaming my marathon over the Intertubes for you to watch my pain and, eventually, see me slip into madness. I plan on trying to get some visitors as well as give out some prizes to random stream viewers. I will post the schedule of what order the games will be played in before the event, so if it is Multiplayer you’ll know when you can jump in with me and keep me company.
More details will be posted here as we get closer to October 15th, but in the meantime if you have the means to do so please help make this as painful as possible.
Note: If you donate, please include a note with the game of choice and your Twitter name, if you have one.
