With just one sleep left before the 24-hour Extra Life gaming marathon to raise money for children’s hospitals, I’ve managed to raise nearly 80% of my initial goal! But my work’s not over yet –– I’ve still got 24 hours of gaming ahead of me and $65 left to raise! Every dollar counts, so please consider clicking the image above and donating some change, if you have any to spare.
Update: I’ve reached my goal! I’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who donated! However, Team VGW still has a ways to go before we reach our ultimate goal of $2000, so please keep on donating!
Also, did you know that if you live in the United States and donate over $12, you can enter Video Game Writer’s drawing to win a Roxio Game Capture HD Pro unit for streaming and recording game footage, valued at $150 a pop? Yeah! Definitely go check out the details of that giveaway here, as I have it on good authority that there have been very few entries to date, so your chances of winning are high. Since I’m a member of Team VGW, donations directly to me count towards the contest, too!
Now I know I had a lot of lofty incentives in my previous post that never came to fruition for a variety of reasons, so I’m going to scrap all that and give everyone who reads this post to vote for which titles you most want to see me play!
You can even submit ideas for other games I haven’t included, but of course there’s always the possibility that I don’t own it or have already played it, so please keep that option for general suggestions only. The highest voted picks will have the highest priority in my play list, but of course I reserve the right to change my mind whenever I feel like! Let me tell you, 24 hours is a long time, so if playing one game over another means the difference between staying awake and phoning it in early, I’m going to do whatever it takes to stay awake!
Tune in from 3 am PDT (awful time, I know, but that’s actually 8 pm here in Australia) to my Twitch account to watch me play games in real time! I’ll also be tweeting my antics if you’re not interesting in watching/listening to me ramble. Video Game Writers will be giving away game codes and swag the whole day, so be sure to follow them, too!
I hope to see you on Saturday!
