    May Meeting

    It's time for our May meeting! Due to having to pay for electricity at our recent East Coast Game Conference, there will be no free pizza at this meeting. Because of this, we've decided to hold the meeting at Level-Up in downtown Raleigh again. This way, we can order our own food for dinner and also have the benefit of playing their arcade games! Location: Level Up Kitchen + Barcadium - 126 S. Salisbury St. Raleigh, NC 27603 Time: 7pm - 9pm We'll be recapping all of our recruitment events in April, discussing some upcoming changes in social media, how to easily keep up with the forums and brainstorming some ideas for events in the coming months. Hope to see you all there! Get excited...just like our Vice President!

    b/c I have a horrible hairline and a giant alien head.

    Should be a great event! Still not sure if I should shave my head....
  5. We still don’t have a solid date yet from the national office on when exactly the Facebook Group will be deleted. The only thing we know is a “rough estimate” of May. This is something that is completely out of our control, which makes it all the more important for everybody to bookmark the forums and spend more time paying attention to them. Facebook might be convenient for a lot of people, but not everyone uses it and having to constantly cross-post the same information that people can find on here does nothing but add more work to the leadership team. The one thing I can guarantee is that the most current and detailed information will be found on here. It’s up to everyone else how involved in the program they want to be. I’m of the opinion that asking everyone to check in on here more frequently, is certainly not too much to ask. I’m currently in the process of creating a “how to use the forums” guide that will show everyone just how easy it is to use. I’ll update you all as soon as I hear anything, but in the meantime, we will continue to cross-post most things to Facebook as we make the transition. Sorry we don’t get to see you much man! Think you’ll be in our neck of the woods anytime soon?
  6. Hey everyone, just as a reminder, we could use a little more help at the Oak City Comicon, next Saturday the 16th. Please click on the event page below for all the info. Thanks!!
  7. That's great that they're open to having us there! Thank you so much for asking them! The 23rd might be a liiiitle too soon to put something together. We have several upcoming recruitment events, which are slightly understaffed at the moment. Perhaps we can get something put in the calendar for May? And yes, I have a supply of flyers, banners, CMN goodies, etc. that we use at all of our events. Let @MajorLinux and look at the calendar and get back to you. Family night sounds perfect though! I just want to make sure we have some people available to cover it. At the top of our forums, you'll find these two links... Raleigh-Durham Guild Homepage - Our homepage is where we have a list of contacts, as well as upcoming events for the next 30 days and recent forum posts. It's a good one to bookmark and see what we're up to at a glance. Guild Calendar - Again, probably another good one to bookmark. Any guild member that is hosting an event can add something to the calendar.
  8. That made me laugh. For anyone that is interested, you can put your application in here....
  9. I really need to get on this. Think there is a chance it will ever make it to consoles? I'd love to play it on my Vita. Back to the topic, I can't believe nobody has mentioned the obvious choice....

    Thanks for the heads up sir! You should use some of your volunteer time at work and come help out at ECGC!
  11. Team, Sorry for the last minute change, but due to an unexpected event at my work, we need to change the venue of our April meeting. WE WILL NO LONGER BE MEETING AT THE DUKE OFFICES. For this meeting, we will be at the Level Up Kitchen and Barcadium in downtown Raleigh. My apologies for the confusion! Event page + address has been updated.
  12. Bumping this back to the top. The meeting location needed to be changed. Apologies for the confusion, but this one was out of our control!
  13. I'm of the opinion that articles like this don't belong on the front page of this community. It seems like this contains a lot of opinion, hearsay and clearly, not all the facts are in. As a guild president, who has been involved in this program for many years now, I don't think the tone or content of this piece is appropriate. Just my opinion, but things like this belong on a personal blog, not a children's charity forum. I'm open to having in depth discussions about issues like this, I just don't think it should be taking place here.

    We're happy to announce that the Extra Life Raleigh-Durham Guild are partnering with the awesome people at Triangle Game Night and the West 94th St. Pub for their St. Baldrick's Foundation event, "BRAVE A SHAVE FOR KIDS WITH CANCER". Whether you decide to shave your head in the Pub's 6th annual Headshaving Event or run/walk in the inaugural Balderdash 5K, you will be making a difference in the life of a child. Date: 5/1/16 Time: 10AM - 6PM Location: West 94th St. Pub @ 4711 Hope Valley Road, Durham If you are interested in signing up as a shavee or donating to their cause, I've created a Team Page you can join. We're currently looking for some volunteers to help staff our table, sign people up for Extra Life and also help out Erin with the kids play area. Please RSVP ASAP so we can try and split the day up for people!
  15. I've never been so utterly addicted to a multiplayer game before. I particularly love 1v1. Looking forward to the update.
  17. That looks super sweet! Makes the "golden thumbs-up awards" I hand out look pretty cheap!"
  18. Hey everyone! We've secured a spot at the East Coast Game Convention! Woo!! This is a three day event, so we need as much help as we can get for this one! Please check out the event page and let us know ASAP! I don't want to have to work our booth all by myself!

    Great news! The fine folks at the East Coast Game Conference have invited us to be a part of their event. ECGC returns for it's eighth year in Raleigh and is the largest gathering of gaming professionals on the east coast. This year's featured speaker is the one and only, Warren Spector! This is a great opportunity for us to spread the word of Extra Life, the Guild Program and make some new contacts within the industry. We're currently looking for volunteers for the three day convention. Please look at the schedule below and let us know when you could come help out. We will do our best to help break-up the work and take shifts. If you can only help out for a few hours, that's totally fine, just let us know in the comments below and I'll start adding people to the schedule. Tuesday, April 19th 2:00PM - 6:30PM (2 volunteers needed) Wednesday, April 20th - 9:00AM - 5:30PM (4 volunteers needed) Thursday, April 21st - 9:00AM - 4:30PM (4 volunteers needed) Thank you in advance for all your help! Hope to see you all there!
  20. I originally played in on Wii, but I also picked it up for Wii-U. It feels a little more stiff than I remember, but I think it has some of the best dungeons in the series. Also, Midna is such a wonderful character. Easily my favorite Link companion from the series. Her story is heartbreaking.
  21. I played the beta....meh. Not my thing. You know what I'm like with multiplayer! Just let me sit in the corner alone with Zelda!
