Hey all, each year I participate in Extra Life, a charity geared towards gamers, taking donations for childrens' hospitals. This year I'd like to share that with you all! 

Since I've joined up here I've had a blast playing Nintendo games and I want to carry that over to my charity work. 

I'm certainly not here to beg though, I don't have a little bell and I won't harass you on the street. What Extra Life is, and what I do each year, is I'll broadcast my gaming sessions live on Twitch, and hey, if you're having fun, maybe toss $5 or something towards the pot! I suppose instead of a bell I have a controller.  

Before I get into all the pertinent info, here's the link in case you want to read my page:

Extra Life


Donation = Game request!

Donate at the link above and you can request a game for me to play on the NES or SNES! Any game of your choice for any size donation, and I'll play for at least an hour!  


The following info is basically ripped straight from my donor page above, customized to make sense here on NA.

Firstly, what is this exactly? This is Extra Life; a charity for children's hospitals across the world, fueled by gamers. In a nutshell, I play games, you watch, you donate maybe? Hopefully? All proceeds are tax deductable, and go straight into funding childrens' hospitals, helping kids around the world. I personally am supporting Sick Kids, as they helped me out of some tough spots when I was growing up!

In years past I have done the 24 hour broadcast, and while it's been a lovely (exhausting!) time playing games (totally not falling asleep!), I think it's about time I changed things up over here, much like I am doing in my gaming life in general! While I won't 100% rule out doing a 24 hour broadcast (typically done in November or so), I will be focusing this year on MORE broadcasts than ever before, and hopefully garnering more attention throughout the year! Look forward to (almost) weekly broadcasts on Twitch this year, as well as the usual giveaways and raffles!

So what can you look forward to seeing? I've made a complete 180 on my gaming this year as some of you may know, and have swapped over from PS4/XBox One to Nintendo! I'm focusing on playing older games from the NES and SNES era, so look forward to plenty of that! I may also play some Wii and Wii U titles, since I skipped so many of those, but the easiest thing for me to broadcast will be the retro games, since I have those setup and ready to go! I especially love shmups (shoot-em-ups/bullet hells), so look forward to plenty of those!

While I won't be sticking to a "weekly" schedule where I'm online broadcasting each week (life be cray, yo) I will aim to broadcast at least a few times each month. 

If you want to know the absolute latest, and wish to follow me on Twitter, I will be Tweeting out whenever I broadcast, and will give a general idea of when I'll be playing next!

In previous years I've set a goal of up to $1000, and for the last two years I have reached that goal, dead on! Over the 5 years I've done Extra Life I've raised $2500 total (as of this writing)! This year I want to step it up a notch and aim a bit higher, so my goal this year will be $1200. If I can reach that, amazing; if I can surpass it, all the better!

While these will be pretty fluid, as usual there will be giveaways this year! I will likely have prizes available at certain donation thresholds, and if I can get my hands on some awesome item(s), I may hold another raffle! In previous years I raffled off some neat stuff, including a New Nintendo 3DS XL!

Once again, check my Twitter for the latest updates on prizing, though I will strive to keep this page updated as well!

Cool! Always enjoy watching people playing NES for charity. I'll give you a follow on Twitter later and hopefully my free time will match up with some of your broadcasts.

Do you take requests for games?

-------------------------
nes collection total: 112
latest additon(s): heavy barrel, and track and field 2
Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Haha yeah, I'll for sure take requests. Even Stealth ATF, which I have never played, and I am sure I will regret saying so.

Make a donation and request a game, and I'll play it for at least an hour live on Twitch. Size of donation doesn't matter.

Top Gun: Another game I've not played (that I can recall).  

I'll probably find some time to broadcast tonight, actually, if anyone is interested in watching me play Life Force. Trying to get a decent score to put up in the weekly contest!

Top Gun is actually pretty fun despite what the internet may tell you. The second one I didn't like.

Good luck with the charity

Hey all, fyi I will be playing Turok 2: Seeds of Evil on PC tomorrow evening, hoping to rally up some donations for Extra Life. 

Starting RIGHT NOW, any donation to the cause will count as an entry into a drawing, for your own copy of the game! It just released today, and the winner will receive the game as a gift on your choice of either Steam, or GOG.com. 

The winner will be chosen at random (using random.org) from the list of donators on my page between now and the time of the draw. I will start playing tomorrow at 7pm (EST), and will stop after roughly 2 hours. The draw will be at the end of the broadcast.

To enter, simply make any size donation to my donor page (click the banner in the OP of this thread!), and put your NA username in the message field.

Looking forward to playing the game, and I hope to see some of you tomorrow on Twitch!
