We are just a day away from our Extra Life event and I have more details for anyone planning on joining us for the fun and games. If you’ve been pondering the tough queries of what we’ll be playing, who we’ll be playing with, and what types of giveaways everyone be ready for, then we’ve got a little bit of useful info for you right down below. For those of you still in the dark on this, we’ll be live-streaming on our Twitch channel for 24 hours in an effort to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country. You can DONATE on our Extra Life Team Page.
What will we be playing?
We’ll be taking a dip into a little bit of everything ranging from Destiny‘s Vault of Glass raid on the hardest difficulty, to titles of the yesteryears like Mario Kart Double Dash. You can expect to see next-gen games such as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Sunset Overdrive, and Bayonetta 2 take their rightful places in the rotation, but don’t be surprised if the question of Goldeneye or Perfect Dark comes up by the end of our 24 hours on air. Also, don’t think we won’t be whipping out the board games for some fun tabletop action either. Word on the streets is that a certain queen of Pumpkin Spice Lattes may even host a session of the Battlestar Galactica board game live on camera.
Who can you expect to see this Saturday?
You’ll definitely be seeing your usual fearless heroes like Jessica Chobot, Dan Casey, Brian Walton, Michele Morrow and the white pants messiah himself, your’s truly. You can also expect many other guest including Nerd Alert’s Kim Horcher, quite a few of our friends from Geek and Sundry, the face of Sunset TV Mr. Brandon Winfrey, and many more.
How can you be a part of this?
There are tons of ways that you can help out in reaching our goal. The best way would be to join our Extra Life team, providing a donation to the team on your behalf or even by hosting your very own live-stream event. The best part about this is, we’ll be giving away lots of cool stuff throughout the stream to folks who donate, including Loot Crate subscriptions, video game vouchers, and some merchandise from our pals at Astro Gaming. Truthfully, there’s no telling who may drop by with something exclusive to give away, like these Astro a38s with exclusive Nerdist speaker tags:
Pretty neat, right? All in the name of the children! Of course, if you’re unable to donate, hanging out with us in the chatroom still goes a long way too, and we’ll make it worth your while with some rather insane gaming shenanigans to keep you entertained. We’ll all need to root each other on as we make our way to that glorious $20,000 mark, which is nothing in comparison to the smiles this money will put on the faces of the children that benefit from it.
And that’s the rundown, folks. We’re going to be kicking things off at 9am PST this Saturday, and won’t be logging off until the earth makes its full rotation into Sunday morning. Make sure you keep our team page book marked if helping out is in the cards for you, or if you’re a social media junkie in need of a reminder when that pivotal day hits, feel free to join our Facebook event. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments and I’ll be sure to get you an answer STAT. Hope to see you there!
