Did you think your chance to donate to Extra Life had passed? Were you only interested in donating during a poorly produced amateur stream? If those two things are true, I have some fantastic news for you!
This Saturday, December 7th, I'll be doing my 3rd lifetime "Extra Life for Slackers" stream. From 9 am PST Saturday until 9 am PST Sunday, I'll be playing games on the PC, PS4, and Xbox 1 while trying to convince folks to donate to Extra Life in support of Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH. What can you expect? I tend to stream slower paced games - more strategy, tactics, or management sims. As a solo streamer, those give me things to dicsuss as I talk about what moves I'm making and trying to set up for the future. This year, I plan on playing some BattleTech (with all the new expansions), Magic: The Gathering Area, Battlestar Galactica Dreadlock, Prison Architect, Hearthstone, Slay the Spire, and plenty more. For more action oriented games, I'll probably dip into Hitman 2 (including the legacy pack maps) and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I also wouldn't rule out some MLB: The Show on PS4 and a tour across Star Wars games from Jedi: Fallen Order to Rogue Squadron to Tie Fighter.
Why so late? My career's busy time is from October through November. As soon as I commit to anything non-work related in that time frame, much less streaming video games for 24 hours, I can almost guarantee there will be some "crisis" at work requiring my attention. So I wait, I watch the GB and friends streams and support as many people as I can, and then try to get in this stream as one final reminder that Extra Life donations are welcome year round.
I rarely stream so I don't have much of a following, but this community has always shown up for Extra Life. If you can donate, great, and if not, I'd love for people to just pop in the chat for a few minutes and offer moral support. Or spread the word about Extra Life. I hear it's all for the kids.
