    Article written by Robert Sullivan, a second-year participant who plays for Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation I am Robert Sullivan and I am 14 years old. My little brother Steven is one of the Canadian Champion Children. I joined Extra Life a year ago and I have been enjoying it ever since. When my brother was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, I was devastated. Cancer spreads to everyone in the family, not just the person who has it. I also have severe anxiety so I get stressed easily and have panic attacks if I get to scared or overwhelmed. I wanted to help raise money for kids who didn't have enough money for treatments, trips, games, and gaming consoles and one day my dad gets an email from the Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation about Extra Life, so I joined and started streaming. I was watching the ExtraLife4Kids channel on Twitch and asked the streamer if there was a server for Extra Lifers to play Minecraft on. She responded no, so I created one in 1.8. The server will be up 24/7 unless my computer updates or is down for maintenance. Anyone can record, livestream, play etc. Since my brother Steven is the Champion for Newfoundland and Labrador, we were able to go to Ottawa and Florida for the Champions trip and Children’s Hospitals Week. We attended Extra Life United 2017 and I met my favorite streamer Sevadus! I also had met another Newfoundland streamer his name is Nathan Roberts aka Noofynate. He is good friends with me and my family and we played games at Extra Life United. He is a kind and open hearted person. I want people to be just like that and most of them are! So, that is how I joined Extra Life! Ip for the server is: ExtraLifeFactions.myserver.gs. On the server there is a shop, custom plugin, vaults and enchants! View full article

    Square Enix announced at E3 2015 that the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake was finally going to become a reality over a decade after first showing footage of a remade Final Fantasy VII opening running on the PlayStation 3. Since then, more sceenshots and trailers have appeared along with details about how Square Enix would be releasing the game as an episodic series (not the way many would prefer to play FFVII, but at least the remake would finally exist). Now the director of the PlayStation 4 HD remaster of Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, has revealed that Square Enix might very well be expanding its remake efforts to another Final Fantasy title from the PlayStation One era, though that revelation comes with some predictable caveats. In an interview with The International Business Times - UK, Takashi Katano let some insider speculation slip, saying, "[Final Fantasy 12] is a PS2 title, and you look at the other titles in the series and technologically anything before the PS2 era is going to be quite difficult to do a modern remaster of to a suitable level of quality. That means [a future game] is far more likely to be a remake." That statement is hardly controversial - Square Enix has reimagined and remade the earliest Final Fantasy titles for mobile, PC, and Nintendo DS/3DS several times over the years. However, this news coming from a director of a major Square Enix project seems to imply that any upcoming remake would be a major, franchise undertaking, perhaps on par with their efforts to remake Final Fantasy VII. The question seems to be which Final Fantasy game would see such a complete overhaul? Final Fantasy V and VI, though originally released on the Super Nintendo, could be a contenders as both eventually made their way to the PlayStation and the current director of the Final Fantasy VII remake has expressed interest in remaking those two titles in particular. However, significant camps of support are present for Final Fantasy VIII and also Final Fantasy IX. Expanding on his statement, Katano explained that the process would be less about what any individuals within Square Enix would like to port and more about what their customers want, "I've personally been working at Square Enix for 20 years now and I've got a lot of memories from that time. I think the way that we look at it is not the game that [we] would like to remake it's really down to what the players, the fans, want to see. We really have to hear their voices on that, if they want to see a remake or a remaster of a certain game then that's more likely to be the one we go for." Anything beyond the Final Fantasy VII remake is likely still in only the very earliest stages of development, if at all, but it is certainly wonderful news to hear that the company is open to revisiting their classic line-up with more modern technology.

    Oh, it is coming, we just don't want to overload everyone with too much Final Fantasy all at one time. We're taking the Square Enix approach - say it will happen and then wait a decade.

    Hi @Jay and @peterphamthanks for your patience and follow up! As you know, we do not currently have an official affiliate / sponsorship program like this. It's something we've definitely discussed and hope to provide resources behind in the future. For now, this can be done on an individual level. A streamer is more than welcome to raise funds for Extra Life however they'd like. Any company that you might run across that is interested in getting involved beyond a local/individual level can reach out to us the via our Partnership Inquiry Form: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1105. Thank you!

    Hey everyone! My name is Josh McIllwain, and I've been organizing Extra Life at the Crazy Squirrel Game Store every year for the last 3 years. We've been able to collect over $6,000 combined over the last few years, and I'm really excited about seeing us grow in Fresno. I wish I could've made it to the meeting last night, but I had other obligations. I am interested in applying for a leadership position - @ForTheKids, would you mind letting me know what you need from me in order to apply? Thanks!

    Hello all, My name is Manuel Vejar but you will see my alias most of the time which is Breathinglions. I stream on twitch and enjoy games such as PUBG, Dead By Daylight, H1Z1, GTAV, Rimworld, and many others. I have spent four years active duty navy from 2009 to 2013. I have been to England, Spain, Italy, The Vatican, Bahrain, Dubai, and France. I have conducted multiple humanitarian and operational missions including Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation New Dawn, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am now in the Naval Reserves in Lemoore and am a part of the Junior Enlisted Association (VP of the Social Committee). I am also ASST. Director of our Sponsorship program. I want to help out as much as I can physically do so as I am personally committed to helping others and especially children. I hope the enthusiasm and creativity of this group will seed others to join and become a part of something bigger than themselves! Thanks for all that you do!

    Hello, I am Lyell and this will be my fourth year participating in extra life. I started in Washington, though when I moved to California a few years ago I jumped on the opportunity to share this amazing organization with new people. I look forward to helping the Fresno guild compete with the larger cities, and help the children.
