Have you ever wanted to show people that gaming can affect people? Here is your opportunity to show what you can do as a gamer. We created a team that will be taking part in the 2012 Extra-Life Charity Event and we want you to join us! The charity effects Children's Miracle Network Hospitals around the country.
The event begins on October 20th at 8am in your time zone and ends on October 21st at 8am. What were asking of you guys is if you want to participate with us sign up under out team, set a goal of how much you want to raise in donations, choose a hospital to benefit, and play! We will be streaming our perspective of the marathon but those who sign up for the team are not obligated to stream at all, you can stream though if you choose. If you do decide to stream all we ask is that you let people know what website your representing and the live stream. If you want to participate but can't do it on the set date that's entirely okay. You can do the event any day that works best for you.
You might be wondering as well what games are we playing? You can play any game you want! You can play games as intense as Battlefield 3, World of Warcraft, or even games on your phone or Facebook. All you have to do is play any game or games you want for 24 hours. We can set it up also that people in the team can play multiplayer games with other members of the team during the marathon if you choose.
The last thing to note is where is the event? The event can be done from the comfort of your own couch. We won't be holding it at any set location but we will still be streaming it. You can get a group of friends to come over to your house and play or simply play online with everyone you wish to play with.
