I signed up, wanted to last year. Should be fun. Gonna play mostly PC games, some Dreamcast maybe. FOR THE KIDS!
Going to give this a go for the first time. FOR THE KIDS!
I am in again - This is my 5th year.
Here is my donation link - http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=45144

I wrote these notes a few years ago about how to help survive the gaming, maybe I will modernize them and post it on the blog here - http://2idiotgamers.com/?p=571
Extra Life 2013 Mysteries...
However, it's nigh on useless FOR THE TWO PLAYSTATION ONE GAMES THAT I'M GOING TO PLAY FOR OUR NEXT GIANT BOMB BASED CHARITY ENDURANCE RUN EVENT HINT HINT.
- Both of the games I'll be playing are part of the same series.
- The sequel to the first game in the series was never released in the United States of Americaland.
More importantly, @matt, can you add a space between "Extra" and "Life" in the thread title? Your careless disregard for the rules is utterly astonishing for someone in a position such as yours.
I'm also interested in joining and, like a few others have mentioned, I'm into the idea of playing 25 hours of horror games because I'm apparently looking for a way to emotionally damage myself for years to come.
You know, for the kids.
I'm Thinking of marathoning both Amnesia games and the Penumbra games.
I haven't signed up yet since I'm still trying to see if my former magazine would like to sponsor my marathon, but I'm wondering if I can join multiple teams?
Still waiting on their response though...
Drew and I are definitely interested in doing this as well. Right now the big hangup is that I will be on the east coast November 1st for one of my best friend's wedding (I know, how rude of him not to check the Extra Life dates!). Trying to see when I would be flying back to be able to make this happen. We may have to do it on the 3rd if we can do it, which is obviously a bummer since part of the excitement is being able to do it with all of you.
I think I got this right?
http://www.twitch.tv/confirm4crit I'm in to stream some DOTA if we wanna group up somewhere.
Despite my virulent hate for children I am very excited for this year's extra life. Drew and Alexis should definitely partake. Just let Alexis go to the wedding, say no to all the alcohol, get back and get on that couch!
I wonder if anyone is doing anything Battlefield 4 - related since that releases right around that time.
Derp, i joined the team a long while ago and should get up on this list:
My improv team is joining the cause! We already do a web series called Happy Hour Game Time, so we figured a 25-hour long episode would be right up our alley. We're partnering up with a whole bunch of local community talent in Las Vegas, and it should be pretty damn exciting. Good luck, duders!

I've set up a Twitch account (thanks to @fattony12000 for helping out)!
I'm planning on playing games that I think are interesting to watch, and that I can complete quickly. So far I'm gonna play and complete RE4, Dark Souls, Super Meat Boy, and Illusion of Gaia. Gonna play each one soon to figure out how much time I'll have left after those games. Suggestions are welcome!
PS - My Twitch is on private mode right now while I figure out the settings a little better.
I'm going to process Eastern European immigrants for 25 hours straight in Paper's Please!
@chaser324 is building us a fucking sick new video/chat page. You'll all get to see it soon enough. It's dope as shit. Goddamn.
One thing I would like everyone to think about is a Twitter hashtag for us to use to digitally pimp our efforts. Because this is a Giant Bomb Community thing, I thought something simple like #GBCEL (Giant Bomb Community Extra Life) would work, as that's what we are. So...there. What are all y'alls thoughtz?
I'm going to make a blog post soon with deets and tips and hints and other things soon, it'll discuss the above things, as well as more other things, too.
Well this is the first time I'm actually going to try to live stream for something like this. I don't think i'll be talking over the game but if you want to see some random ps1/ps2 games then tune in. For the kids!
I had already joined and sent in a request to Extra Life to join team Giant Bomb
my first year doing it and I am very excited!
Totally left out my page (facepalm) http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participant&participantID=50261
I'll probably just play TTT the whole time.
I will be playing every brawler from '89-'94 on my arcade cab, and live streaming it too!
I've been doing this too!
I'm playing Persona 4 right now, I'm 51 episodes deep. When I get done with P4, I'm going to play Valkyria Chronicles! Get rekt.
On my college's Gaming Club Extra-Life team for the second year. We are trying to combine public events on campus with streaming and other gaming sessions. Continuing our tradition of a NERF Battle through our Arts Center at 8 a.m. Saturday and a sunrise Sunday game of polo on our central green.
Best of luck to all the duders on the GB team and enjoy quantum leaping back into sanity after Daylight Savings :P

Ok, I'm trying to get a stream set up, but I've never done it before and have a few questions with OBS.
How do I set up 2 usb headsets for audio and mics? I've been doing some reading about using Virtual Audio Cable for the microphones, but I come up with nothing for help with output of game sound.
I'll be mainly playing Dark Souls on PC (I've only played 1-2 hours of the PS3 version before) with some other TBD games thrown in for a sanity break now and then.
Can't wait. Might get my Outlast on.
Guys guys guys guys! We are in Houston with a team of willing drunks and a ton of donated beers from local breweries. We will be playing through some amazing terrible games (once we work out the kinks). Attention is appreciated and also people in the chat for us to strip for (and body pillows.)
