IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!

Hey everyone, Extra Life 2021 is right around the corner with the main event starting on November 6th! As many of you already know Giant Bomb will be having tons of guests including the fine people of Nextlander streaming for the team! That said, a large portion of the donations to Giant Bomb's Team total come from regular users like you and me! The team goal is to raise $223,566 so Giant Bomb can crest an all-time total of $2,000,000 raised for Extra Life! Giant Bomb proper has a personal goal of $100,000.

If this post got you interested in joining the team, here's the link to join! If you join the team and this is your first time streaming for charity, here's a helpful guide from the Extra Life Team with suggestions on how to make everything go well.

With that in mind, if you are a part of Giant Bomb's Extra Life team, feel free to promote your donation page, streaming date and time, and Twitch or streaming service of choice.

As an example, I'll share my Extra Life 2021 plans below!

I'm doing it again! 5th year!

  • Nov 5th 6am to Nov 6th 6am (this is what I'm shooting for, if I sleep in I'll adjust accordingly, but going the full 24hrs)
  • Twitch link
  • I did it last year and I'll do it again, any donation gets you a doodle request.
  • Goal to make it to is $500 to at least get around to matching last year.

This year I'll be kicking off the stream with 3 hours of Rock Band 4 drumming, and after that we'll be playing a large variety of retro FMV and adventure games, with a 3DO block in the middle. I didn't set too lofty a goal since it's been 6 years since I've done an Extra Life stream, but if I do hit my $250 goal we'll play the 1992 adventure game Dune. Figured it'd be timely with the recent Dune hype.

Excited for this year, and I hope to pop into some of y'alls streams!

I'm going to be attempting a good mix of stuff in hopes that I'll be able to stay awake for the whole thing, so expect some VR stuff or Ring Fit to keep me moving. Apologies in advance that I'm not really chatty on stream, but I hope the gameplay will entertain enough to make up for it!

3rd or 4th year with Team GB! This year I've roped in a fellow streamer and GB Fan OKRetroZone to co-hosting over on my channel..

We're going to be doing a ton of co-op stuff, some solo stuff, and a decent amount of games with Twitch Integration (Vermintide 2 and Chef Squad, to name a few). I know the panini has been rough on everyone, so feel free to come and hang out even if you cannot donate.

Going to attempt the full 24 hours this year. We'll be all over the place in terms of games, but people can expect some N64 rom hacks, Mario Party, Scrap Mechanic, and a few others. My goal is $1000; ridiculously high, I know. However, the first year we did manage to get over $800. So if we pass the $800 mark, I'll play Balan's Wonderworld in VR* (SteamVR with a large cylindrical mapping, but working Oculus controls).

Looking forward to popping into everyone's streams this year. Best of luck!

The first 8 hours will be very scheduled. Co-streaming some multiplayer madness. I'll also be hosting a one shot of The Green Knight (a ttrpg ruleset they released as a promo for the movie), to which there are a few slots open still so DM me if interested.

Things on the docket include:

It Takes Two

Playing a collection of Sonic games that swap every time you pick up a ring

Hive Time https://cheeseness.itch.io/hive-time

attempting the pacqui 2021 chip challenge

There are also a couple of milestone goals:
Reaching $500 means I'll have a segment where I play as a healer in FFXIV for the first time ever (I haven't been a healer in anything since Overwatch first launched and still the thought of it gives me chills.)
Reaching $800 means I'll be ending my stream doing a session of ring fit adventure with camera on and weighted.
There might be a secret incentive if we meet/exceed my amount raised in 2020 ($1000).

The Docket is A lot of different things and complicated to chart out but I've been experimenting with the limitations of my stream.

  1. I'm going to be pretty fresh with a new racing wheel so I'm going to be experimenting with both arcade and simulation racers.
  2. We're going to be upkeeping with several games dailies such as Pokemon Unite, Smite, Arknights, World Flipper
  3. At some point we have the idea of playing American Truck Simulator and chatting
  4. Pitched a cooking segment
  5. Fighting Games
  6. Drawing some requests I received some time ago that I'm fulfilling the rewards on
  7. I've Also Had A Speedrun pitched at me but this one might fall through.
  8. There's a lot of SAGE2021 games I've yet to finish checking out and it'll be a shame if I never get to them
  9. I tend to upkeep a YT channel so we might even edit video on stream
  10. OR for the YT channel record a Let's Play over parsec/discord call

I set my goal to $100 so that it's easily reachable and I push for incentives rather than anything else but be sure to check in with me throughout the time since I'll probably need the check ins (i tire out very easily)

I'm definitely coming back for a 7th year with this team, and I'm looking forward to it!

Last year I did more than 25 games, so I'm going to slow it down and spend more time this year with each. VR will be back again this year though! I hope everyone has good streams! I'll be encouraging people to check out the team list to donate to team members in their area.

For the kids!

First timer here. Gonna be streaming the "Wheel of Roguelikes". This ain't one of those streamlabs garbage wheels you've seen, this is a...better wheel...yeah! Spin the wheel, play the roguelike it lands on. You, the viewer, control the wheel! Not only can you spin it with a chat command but you can donate to increase or decrease the odds of landing on a specific game! You can see a list of the games on the wheel (with links to their respective steam pages) on my Twitch page. Goal is $100. I'm a very small streamer, not even affiliate, so I'm setting expectations low. As should you.

Second time streaming for extra life. I'm not a big streamer so my goal is only a $100. I'll be streaming a variety of wrestling games. Come hang out for a good cause.

This years Extra Life is special to me because I'm raising money for the hospital I work at, as an RN! I'll be doing consistent variety streams daily in the evenings into the late nights.

Incentives: request (any) games and music, and make me do high rep of exercises!

Plan: We'll typically start with Chess (blitz), DOTA, and Hades speedrunning, but again, donations determine our path! Come hang out in the evenings! Maybe some viewer Multiplayer games!

It’s my fifth year this year and my goal is $250. I will be checking out some new games (Inscryption, Age of Empires 4, House of Ashes), some multiplayer games with friends, and some really “bad” games too. Hope folks can come and hang out. Thanks for setting this up!

It's my first year streaming for extra life, but thats not going to stop me from streaming the full 24 hours. I'm going to be playing the new GTA Collection to see if it's a trainwreck or a hilarious trainwreck, and I'm also going to be streaming some horror games this evening. Thanks for setting this up too!

This will be my second year particifpating in Extra Life. Last year I was able to hit $500 thanks in no small part to some donations from the now famous @bunghole69, and from @zombiepie and @rorie posting my stream in the giant bomb chat, which was a huge rush for me. I'm hoping to be able to hit $500 or more this year, for Childrens Health Orange County, where my cousin's daughter receives care for her cancer. I'll be doing two twelve hour streams, playing some newer stuff, along with some games from my backlog. Who doesn't love a good log stream?? Come by and say hi if you have a chance!

My friend and I will be kickstarting the GB Discord's relay marathon this Friday, Nov 19th, at 9AM PST. Come watch us play Hunted: The Demon's Forge! It's going to be a bad time! I had to set up a thing on Hamachi to make it work! I had to fuck around with IPv6 settings for the video game to recognize our fake LAN connection! It's like Gears of War, but Fantasy and Bad! Lucy Lawless is in it?

I assume the other folks participating will be playing better games, but if you want eight hours of pure unadulterated 2011 video game, why not tune in?

Heya gang! Due to real-life issues I couldn't participate on Game Day.

However! I was able to carve out the 24 hours for this upcoming weekend!

My Donation Page

I was also able to wrangle some corporate sponsors! So, for every $5 someone donates, they're entered in a raffle to win 1 of 12 Prizes!
