This is the 3rd time I am participating in Extra Life, the 24-hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Hospitals around the country. Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million for local CMN Hospitals
As I’m in the Seattle area, I’m supporting the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Last year was super fun, but I had a whole team of folks taking turns for Team En Masse. We did really well, with so many of the TERA Online players showing up to be supportive. We played a little bit of TERA and a whole bunch of indie games. It was a hoot! This year, I’m on my own, but I might cheat and host other team member’s streams when I can. Heck, maybe I can get Barry to play a game in my place when I’ve petered out.

I’ve been setting up my Twitch page, so I’ve got the proper bots and whatnot. I’m pretty new to streaming on my own versus having all the fancy equipment in game studios, so it might just look like ass. And I’m okay with that, as I’m doing this for charity. Folks can make fun of my noob set up all they want.
SO! The good part! I’ll be streaming starting on Saturday, at Noon and streaming until Noon on Sunday. Find my stream here: https://www.twitch.tv/danicia You don’t need a Twitch account to watch, but you will if you want to take part in the chatter!

Whew, that’s a LOT of games, but hey, I’ve got 24 hours to fill and some of these are short games.
So! Please join me on Twitch to see me play video games badly. And if you can, please consider donating to my Extra Life fundraising page.
Thank you for supporting me and supporting Children’s Hospital!
I know I talk about the not-so-awesome aspect of some gamers & gamer culture. However, there are a lot more awesome gamers out there than jerks. And when it comes to charity fundraisers, there are a lot of great people doing great things.
This time, I decided to join in. I’ve donated to Child’s Play before, especially sponsoring the Cookie Brigade at PAX Prime & PAX East. There are so many inventive ways for geeks & gamers to be involved and now I’m going to be doing my part.
I will be sorting out my list of games so you can track what I’m playing. I might live broadcast some of it, and there will definitely be pictures. You can track my games from watching my Twitter feed or following me on Raptr.
Hope to see you get involved!
