What is it?
RPGamer is pleased to announce our second year of joining with Sarcastic Gamer to participate in the Extra Life gaming marathon.

Extra Life is an annual charity event where participants pledge to game for 24 hours on October 16th in exchange for donations. New this year is that these gifts now stay in the participant's community. Donations go to their local Children's Miracle Network hospital.

In addition, people in the US or Canada who donate to an RPGamer staff member or who participate in the event and join the RPGamer team will be entered into a drawing for one of the following prizes:

    I was actually going to do this through another site but I just realized I have a wedding that date. S**T. I guess I'll just have to sponsor someone instead.

    Looks like we're going to add a drawing to the event this year. We're still finalizing the prize list, but how it works is like this. If you're in the US or Canada and donate to the RPGamer staff or if you're a reader raising money, you get entered in a drawing for games and other cool stuff we collect.

    We can't include people who sponsor readers because we have no way to verify their donations as we don't have access to the readers' sponsor lists on the Extra Life site. But this is all to help heal kids. So I hope no one will mind us doing our best to generate donations for this worthy cause. :)

    So far we have prize confirmation from XSEED Games and NIS America (just no idea what yet). There are also some prizes that staff are donating as well.

    Greetings fellow ExtraLife-ers! Here's my shameless plug for my page: https://www.hospitalshelpingkids.org/ExtraLife/m.aspx?i=190784B56ABEE42+E

    Additionally, I have a twitter page if anyone wants to see what I am up to on The Big Day (link on my donor page). Anyone going to be playing Borderlands that day? Or perhaps Demon's Souls around... level 66?

    I will also be tweeting all day on the 16th. Thank goodness Fowl will be up with me all night making sure I don't fall asleep.

    Also, I wish I had a copy of Demon's Souls or Boardlands to play with everyone, but I need to be a good girl and not spend money for awhile. :(

    This is the second year in a row I'll have to pass. I just had to relocate my living arrangement, and I just can't afford to take time off, or even donate.

    I've been slowly thinking of games I want to play during Extra Life myself. Thankfully, my boyfriend and sis are spending the day with me playing games, so I will get to have a few multiplayer experiences!

    Here's currently what I'm going to work on, me thinks.

    Magic Encyclopedia - Moon Light [PC]
    Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey [DS]
    Final Fantasy: Four Warriors of Light [DS]
    Kirby's Canvas Curse [DS]
    Yakuza 2 [PS2]
    Rock Band [Xbox 360]
    Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game [PSN]

    And a bunch of old SNES games like Super Mario All Stars, and I'll probably bust out Sonic's Ultimae Genesis Collection to play some awesome old platformers and beat'em ups. :D

    How fun, Extra Life is the same day I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed. XP Well, I donated already anyway.

    By the way...
