  1. I am hyped to play some KOTOR!!! It's been a few years, but I still remember how to cheese Malak :p. I haven't tested yet if original Xbox games not listed in the store are also backwards-compatible (yes, I still have original Xbox discs ). What titles is everyone looking forward to?
  2. Beam Streamers?

    Cool, thanks!
  3. Destiny 2

    Who's tried the beta? :raises hand: Overall, I like a lot of the changes they've made, with the caveat that I think there are too many weapons confined to the power weapons slot, and grenade launchers are beyond terrible. Other than those two gripes, I'm cautiously optimistic about Destiny 2's full release. Anyone else looking forward to it?
  4. Nice to see Oblivion getting some love. It remains my favourite of the Elder Scrolls series to date, because it's the world I enjoy spending the most time in. I love how the main plot as well as the fighter's, thieves, and mages guild quests are all about being a part of something greater than yourself.
  5. Beam Streamers?

    It would make my day! I would love to be part of the mixer team.
  6. Beam Streamers?

    I just tried Beam on a whim to show my friend who was in party one of my Fallout builds, since I heard there was way less latency on XB1 for Beam vs. Twitch... I definitely want to be part of the Extra Life community on Beam. Within two minutes of broadcasting, I had my first follower. Within ten minutes of broadcasting, I had another new viewer. I don't entirely know how people found me that fast, but that's amazing, and the publicity/fundraising potential for Extra Life seems enormous. I mean, I can broadcast on Twitch for 90 minutes and am lucky to get one person in my chat. This just seems way more effective for me as an XB1 player. Also, the interface on my end is way better than the Twitch interface on XB1.
  7. Beam Streamers?

    What are the pros and cons of Beam vs. Twitch? I've built a small followers base on Twitch, but the interface is kind of annoying on Xbox One and an update just dropped that better integrates Beam on that system.
  8. Podcast:The Best Games Period - Episode 56 - Mass Effect

    Mr. Skeleton and I bought our first 360 because of Mass Effect. Ah, the memories... I recently had a fresh Mass Effect adventure when the trilogy became backwards-compatible on Xbox One. Yeah, the combat for the first game feels pretty dated, but there's still nothing like Mass Effect. After all this time, I still maintain that the second game is the best RPG ever developed for consoles. It hit the sweet spot of satisfying combat, mature, thought-provoking story content, and just plain fun. It was the first game I ever unlocked 100% of Xbox achievements for including DLC achievements, because I enjoyed it that much. Less than 24 hours before I get to travel to Andromeda...
  9. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    It comes out tomorrow! I've been spoiler-free since November and am going to stream my whole first playthrough. I will definitely be haunting the multiplayer on XB1. Feel free to hit me up - I'm TheLostSkeleton on XBL - with a message that you're with Extra Life and I'll be happy to get some games in! Let's use this thread to share our SP/MP tips and tricks, sweet screenshots, what your Ryders look like, etc. And to just plain be excited.
  10. TL;DR I have no idea what I'm doing, send help! I broadcast directly from my Xbox One. No capture card. Literally all I do is click "Broadcast" in the Twitch app on XB1, and honestly, I kind of like it that way...but I'd like to spruce up my stream a bit as I'm starting to get followers. Can XB1 users make effective use of stuff like Nightbot and StreamPro? What are the pros and cons? I....really, really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to setting up more advanced stuff. Any and all (preferably detailed) advice (don't be afraid to spell it out, I'm a total noob) wanted!
  11. Still Playing Destiny??

    Any interest in some Destiny tonight? I'm down for strikes, raids, regular Crucible - anything but Trials, really.
  12. Still Playing Destiny??

    Shall we revive this topic? Always happy to play, I know all the raids and I do enjoy Crucible although I'm not particularly good at it. GT TheLostSkeleton. If you want to play, just be sure to message me and let me know you're from Extra Life so that I know it's not a random invite/spam/etc.
  13. Welcome! Introduce yourself!

    I have figured out how to play the Dragon Age: Inquisition theme, and now I'm surfing Amazon for sheet music.
  14. Welcome! Introduce yourself!

    This thread being more active lately made me realize that I hadn't posted! I guess it's about time, considering I've been here a while... I'm Elly, I'm Canadian, and 2017 marks my sixth year of Extra Life. I originally learned about it on a knitting forum (really) and thought "hey, that's something good I can do for my community", and couldn't think of a reason NOT here I am! I play for the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. The Stollery serves not only Edmonton kids, but kids from across the province and across the country, with specialized services like a dedicated pediatric ER, a cardiac ICU, and a chronic pain management clinic. I don't have experience with them personally, as I moved to Edmonton as an adult and have no kids of my own, but I am and aunt and a godmother and I am glad to be able to support the Stollery in this way. Other stuff I like to do...I knit, I'm a classically-trained flautist, and I enjoy media of all sorts (games, movies, music, comics, visual arts). You can find me on Xbox Live as TheLostSkeleton playing multiplayer games like Destiny, Borderlands 2, Halo, and Mass Effect 3 - Andromeda's almost here, woot! - but if you want do that, just message me first saying you're from the EL forums as I don't accept party/game invites from Gamertags I don't recognize.
  15. It's too early to say if this results in increased support of Extra Life, but... Today I was doing some EL housekeeping for this year's event page and noticed that, at the end of 2016, my hospital had the pleasure of announcing an upgrade to their operating theater as a direct result of donations. So I wrote up a "here's a concrete way that you make a difference" email, including a link to the video about the new operating theater as well as a link to the hospital's most recent annual report. I also included information about the monthly donations option and an upcoming stream I'll be doing to get the fun started early this year. I know that when I donate to a charity, it's always nice to see where my money goes. So I encourage you to check out your hospital's website, or get in touch with their Extra Life rep, to see what's new and let people know that when they support Extra Life, they really do make a difference!
