  1. Wow, well, Facebook has decided to back the Oculus Rift by straight up buying the company with a mountain of money. Going from a very successful Kickstarter that raised nearly $2.5 million to being a company that was bought out for $400 million, plus $1.6 billion in Facebook stock is probably the biggest financial gain to come out of the Kickstarter video game revolution. Those are staggering numbers, even if you factor in the substantial private support that Oculus Rift VR had received. It would appear that people, or at the very least people in places of authority at companies like Sony and Facebook, think that the world is ready for virtual reality. "Mobile is the platform of today, and now we're also getting ready for the platforms of tomorrow," said Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. "Oculus has the chance to create the most social platform ever, and change the way we work, play and communicate." "We are excited to work with Mark and the Facebook team to deliver the very best virtual reality platform in the world," said Brendan Iribe, co-founder and CEO of Oculus VR. "We believe virtual reality will be heavily defined by social experiences that connect people in magical, new ways. It is a transformative and disruptive technology, that enables the world to experience the impossible, and it's only just the beginning." The next generation of video games has only just begun and already the industry has thrown a huge curve ball at us. Who would have guessed even a few weeks ago that the biggest impending rivalry wouldn't be between likes of Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony, but would instead pit Sony against the social gaming juggernaut of Facebook? With titles like EVE: Valkyrie already slated for Oculus and an upcoming competitor with Sony's Project Morpheus, what do you all think of this turn of events for the VR landscape?
  2. After enduring a two month long closed beta, PopCap Games released Adventures around the world. The game has players making road trips with their friends during a zombie apocalypse. “We’re thrilled to bring new ‘Adventures’ to Plants vs. Zombies fans around the world, challenging them to use new strategies to defeat zombies as they come from all directions in a range of cool new settings,” said Curt Bererton, Executive Producer at PopCap. PopCap was also careful to reiterate that Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is not Plants vs. Zombies 2, which will be coming to retail later this summer. Plants vs. Zombies Adventures boasts a slew of new features including: path-based tower defense, multi-directional zombie onslaughts, new locations to fight the undead hordes, additional power-ups, the promise of monthly updates, new types of zombies, leaderboards, and the ability to unleash a zombie attack upon your friends (or enemies). You can check out Plants vs. Zombies Adventures for the low cost of free via this link.
  3. I just wanted to make a note on a glitch I found by accident on the badges in the Extra Life web site. I have not had Twitter or Facebook in years... I closed out my accounts quite a while ago... (over two years) I was going thru information on my Donation page and dashboard and noticed for some reason Twitter and Facebook were listed as linked on my info. I disconnected both before the November 5th event day and for some reason it gave me a badge for both on my Donation page even though I was de-linking accounts that were no longer active.

  5. Hey everyone! So I'm in a bit of a tizzy as I've been asking folks to share my fundraising page on Facebook. However, it turns out that when you go to post the link (http://extra-life.org/participant/invaderj), Facebook pulls a nonexistent image to use for the post. I had used this test image to explore what sort of layout I could do on my page, but it hasn't been on the page in over 24 hours, so I'm not sure what to do here. Anyone have any ideas? Is it as simple as putting a fresh image into my "official" fundraising page image spot (which is currently empty)? Thanks!

  7. Guildies, in case you are unfamiliar with the FB algorithms for group communication, the longer someone goes without interacting with the group page or at least a group member, the LESS LIKELY they are to see group topics in their feed. In a nutshell here is how it works, the full article is here. "Affinity is your relationship with users." "Weight is based on the post type. (based on Edgerank)" "Time decay how old is your post?" "there are actually four specific action-points that are used by EdgeRank each time you post. These aren’t necessarily fool-proof guarantees that your post will hit the News Feeds of your fans, but they’re all good indicators of the likelihood of that. The four specific points are these: user’s past interactions with the authoruser’s past interactions with that post typereactions from other users for that particular postamount of complaints or negative feedback on that post"The above was either copied directly or loosely from the article which was written in 2013, doubtless the algorithms have changed in that time but the article is very easy to read and understand, as such it provides a good starting point. Here is Facebook's version These are major reasons we are trying to move to the forums, please get the Tapatalk app for your phone and set it up, then you will get notifications just like FB does, without worrying about missing something important in your feed. Our monthly meetings are awesome, at an awesome location, but we always seem to have the same people, part of this could be a by-product of summer taking its toll on guilds, and part of it could be the way FB algorithms work. I would like love to get our core active group up around 20+ ... by core active I mean monthly attendees at meetings on a regular basis who are actually participating in guild. You are always welcome to bring +1's to meetings, family is awesome too, many of you know I usually have my family there, I count my family as 1 entity so 20 unique regular entities would be the goal I see for the coming time, baby steps folks.
  8. Due to the recent news of our Facebook Group disappearing, I thought now would be a good time to point out just how easy it is to set up notifications on the forums. This will help with our total migration off of Facebook. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to customize your notifications and make it super easy to keep up with everything Extra Life and Guild related! 1) Create a username. Remember, your donation page login is separate! 2) Once you're logged in and browsing the forums, click the "Follow This" at the top right of any content. The button should change to "Following". Make sure to follow our forum. 3) Once you're following a piece of content, click the button again to bring up even more options. From here you can quickly change how you want your notifications sent. 4) If you want to go into even greater detail, click "Change how the notification is sent". You can customize almost every single notification to be sent as either an alert, email, etc. 5) Finally, make sure to follow our calendar. It can be found at the top of our forums. You'll be alerted when new events are added and you can even sync it with services like iCalendar, Google Calendar, Outlook, etc. And that's it! Two big things to do 1) Follow our forum & 2) Follow our calendar. Hope this helps! Also, remember that you can browse the forums on mobile. The site scales very well on all devices and can be very useful for those of us on the go! Or if you prefer to use apps. You can download the Tapatalk app for iOS or Android and search for "Extra Life Community". If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, @MajorLinux or @SobeDog007!
