Extra Life 2019: How Weird Is It Gonna Get?

Weird. It's Gonna Get Weird.

Thanks to Hamster for the video!

Kids, huh? Who needs 'em! Well, I'll tell you who: you and me, buddy, if we want anyone to take care of us when we get sent to the Logan's Run Assisted Living facility, where everyone is happy and renewed! Let's help the future programmers of our cyborg overlords fulfill their mission by streaming some video games for the kids this weekend!

ALL STREAMS WILL BE LIVE EITHER HERE OR HERE! ROLL THE DIE!

Before we get into the details, I wanted to thank everyone who has joined our team this year or has joined our team in the past. You might recall that we passed the million-dollar point during last year’s streams, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone who streams on the Giant Bomb team. We already have over $32,000 towards our yearly goal thanks to these fine team members (shout out to Joshua O'Connor and Friends! for leading the way!) and if you want to join as well, there’s plenty of time to do so! Just sign up and join our team and start streaming anytime you like! And we would also be remiss to not thank Matt Pascual for setting up our team and getting everyone organized every year. Check out his forum post or more details on joining our team, should you be so inclined!

Our own personal Giant Bomb member page is right over here, and we’re hoping to raise $100k as a member and $250,000 as a team this year. Hope you can join us for some of the streams!

Here’s a quick schedule for stuff that you can expect to find in the chatroom for the next week, and I’m really hoping I got the timezone right for all of these because that’s what I always screw up:

Start Time (Pacific Time!)Host
9 AM Wednesday - 9 PM WednesdayDrew/Alexis
9 AM Friday - 9 AM SaturdayGiant Bomb West
9 AM Saturday - 9 AM SundayWill Smith
12:01 PM Sunday - 7 AM MondayMatt Pascual
7 AM Monday - 7 PM MondayGiant Bomb East
7 PM Monday - 7 PM TuesdayDave Lang
9 AM - 9 AM Either Weds-Thurs or Thurs-Fri or Weds-ThursDanny O'Dwyer

We have some real "fun" stuff planned for these streams so please do check it out if you have a chance to! You know, for kids!

Yeah, I love when he digs out a really good backlog game to sink his teeth into.

Is GBWest archiving this year? They didn't last year for some reason (I assume it broke and they decided to just not bother for some reason). I can't watch a stream for 24 hours. I work away from computers now a days so I can only watch an archive.

Looking forward to... whatever archives get posted.

I will miss Alex's Herculean Drumathons, but I would miss him having arms more. I hope they raise as much money and more without it, but I felt uncontrollably obligated to keep giving money as Alex soldiered on as so few can. Last year's stream was epic! For the kids!

Ugh, this time of year again.

Time for me to get swindled out of my hard-earned money yet again, all for the sake of these so-called "kids".

And because I am a easy mark, I'll end up donating far too much. I bet most of these children aren't even really sick. They just like lounging around in the hospitals. I hear the food's fantastic.

(For anyone who misread that, I was joking, and am super-excited about this weekend. This is THE best tradition we got.)

I made some fixed time links to a website where you can see what time it is in your or any timezone, you can also see when it ends roughly and there's also features for countdowns, ical stuff and more

9 AM Wednesday - 9 PM WednesdayDrew/Alexis
9 AM Friday - 9 AM SaturdayGiant Bomb West
9 AM Saturday - 9 AM SundayWill Smith
12:01 PM Sunday - 7 AM MondayMatt Pascual
7 AM Monday - 7 PM MondayGiant Bomb East
7 PM Monday - 7 PM TuesdayDave Lang
9 AM - 9 AM Either Weds-Thurs or Thurs-Fri or Weds-Thurs(fri-sat?)Danny O'Dwyer

Max duration is 23h55m so the duration for Will Smith and Mat Pascual are a bit shorter than they actually are.

(last one I added assuming it was a typo and meant Fri-Sat, did you mean that @rorie?)

MOM'S DEAD PARKOUR.

I'm happy Alex gets a break. Last year's 24-hour drum stream was perfect and legendary and honestly there's no real sense is trying to top it any more. Excited to see the crew shenanigans and late night Jan and Rorie nonsense. For the kids.
