  1. Hello! This'll be my first year doing Extra Life. I'm doing it because my local Children's Network Hospital (Johns Hopkins in Maryland) performed two life-saving surgeries on my daughter - the first one in her first week of life! Here's my EL page: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/EricMesa

    I'd love some Twitch followers! I'm new to Twitch and commenting over games in general, although I have done it for a different purpose before like this one where I spoke about a game I played as a kid:

    Games I'll probably be playing on my own:

    • Civilization 5
    • Back to the Future Telltale Games
    • Pacm-Man Chapionship Edition DX
    • Witcher (never played before)
    • Star Wars: KOTOR (never played before)
    • Team Fortress 2
    • Portal/Portal 2 (Commentary Track)
    • Torchlight 1 (never played before)

      Games You Can Force me to play (at certain donation levels):

      • Any of the above+
      • Bastion
      • Greed Corp
      • FTL
      • Trine 2
      • Luxor: 5th Passage
      • Saints Row: The Third
      • Brutal Legend (never played before)
      • Dungeon Defenders
      • FEZ (never played before)
      • LA Noire (never played before)
      • Shank (never played before)
      • Shank 2 (never played before)
      • The Stanley Parable (never played before)
      • XCOM: Enemy Unknown (never played before)
      • BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (never played before)
      • BloodRayne: Betrayal (never played before)
      • Double Dragon Neon (never played before)
      • Long Live the Queen (never played before)
      • Muffin Knight (never played before)

  2. There really are no rules as to how you have to do your time or take your donations. The general suggestion is the 24 hours on the given day and asking for $1 per hour (which would be a $24 donation). BUT that isn't mandatory. The point is just to do your best and have fun. Whether you make it 5 hours or 75 and raise $10 or $1000, just do the best you can. Donations can be in any amount and can be a one time donation or can be monthly. If someone can only donate $1, that's $1 that your hospital didn't have before!

    Hope this clears some stuff up. Feel free to ask me if you have any other questions!

    Awesome. Thanks for that info. By the way, I like both your EL and Twitch setups, especially how you explain your participation in EL within Twitch. You've given me some ideas on how to structure my donation reward tiers.

  3. New to EL and new to streaming gaming, but not new to gaming or computers. Just curious what tends to work best for streaming an EL session: Xsplit's Broadcaster or Gamecaster? I've used Gamecaster a handful of times and it's more or less foolproof. But if there are compelling reasons for Broadcaster, I'd certainly look into learning it before starting my EL run.


  4. Hello Extra Lifers!

    I have been hearing about Extra Life for a few years now when the Giant Bomb guys talk about their participation. Looked around on FAQs and I'm still a little confused on exactly how this works. I'll be doing my fundraising on a non-standard day because my sister-in-law's getting married on the national day. I'd like to create a team with (at the very least), my brothers. So according to the FAQ it looks like, as a team, we can add up all our hours to 25 hours and it can be over any number of pre-specified days. Is that right? But what happens if we end up playing for somewhere between 25 and 75 hours? (Basically, either we can't make it for the full 25 each or we power through 25 each) If we're each getting pledges per hour, what happens when get get to 25 or beyond, if it's possible?

    Thanks for the info!
