It’s that time of year again! 24 hours straight of video game play to benefit children’s hospitals. This will be the first year I’ll get to play on the actual date as I’ve now retired from actual marathon running and moved to just video game marathons. I’d say this type is a little bit more fun. I’ll be playing this Saturday, November 3rd, from midnight to midnight. So the entire day on Saturday will basically be spent on my couch but luckily this crazy task is for a good cause. Everything thing that I raise will be donated straight to Boston Children’s Hospital. That’s the best part of Extra Life. They don’t take any cut of the donations and send everything straight to the hospital you pick. I’d love some company during the day so if you’d like to follow along, I’ll be streaming the entire thing via my Mixer page at . Also here is my Extra Life page if anyone feels like donating:


My mixer page is also linked to my Extra Life page so you can follow along from either place.


My tentative gaming schedule for the day looks like this right now:

12:00am - 02:00am - South Park: The Fractured But Whole

02:15am - 04:15am - Mafia III

04:30am - 06:30am - Nier: Automata

06:45am - 08:45am - Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

09:00am - 11:00am - Batman: The Enemy Within

11:15am - 01:15pm - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

01:30pm - 03:30pm - Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

03:45pm - 05:45pm - Fallout 4

06:00pm - 08:00pm - Forza Horizon 2

08:15pm - 10:15pm - Alien: Isolation

10:30pm - 12:00am - Saints Row IV: Re-Elected

I tried to pick some games that I haven’t played before and might be interesting to watch. I tried picking games towards to the end of the day that either wouldn’t matter if I was a mess (Forza Horizon 2), would be funny to watch me try to do in my sleep deprived state (Alien: Isolation), or would just be crazy to play when I’m crazy tired (Saints Row IV). So hopefully I see some of you there to help keep me awake as I slightly cut in to my backlog and raise some money for some deserving, sick children. And if you do stop by, say hi!
