  1. Hello everyone! I just got out of the army and had started my first ever Extra-Life campaign this year. I was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC and have unfortunately missed out on a majority of the fundraising events for the St Louis Area. Are there still events upcoming or is this pretty much the bottom of the ninth here? I am in the Macon Moberly area. Thank you V/r Nick
  2. Today, Epic Games announced that they would be instituting a much more reasonable pricing model for developers to license Unreal Engine 4. Previously developers would have to pay an arm and possibly a leg or two in order to access an Unreal Engine. Luckily, with the rising costs of game development becoming apparent to everyone, Epic Games decided to lower the entry cost for video game creators looking to start out with top notch software. Beginning today, developers may license Unreal Engine 4 for 5% of whatever money they make from their product as well as $19 per month per Unreal Engine 4 user. This is a huge boon for smaller indie devs that couldn't afford the high, flat cost of creating a game using Unreal Engine 3. What does this mean for gamers? We can look forward to more visually impressive from smaller studios who will be free to pursue their creative visions and more features in games from larger studios that don't have to spend quite as much time focusing on the visual aspects of their blockbusters. For any fledgling game developers out there, now seems to be a great time to get into the trenches and start cranking out games. View full article

  4. Hello! My name is Jack Gardner, I write things for a living and have been given the privilege of joining the Extra Life team to create interesting stuff that gamers want to read. In the coming months you can expect to see news, features, interviews, etc. coming from me, and I sincerely hope that you enjoy them. I figure that it would be good if you all knew a little about me first. I have a degree in English Literature and Medieval History from the University of Minnesota. That degree basically means I’ve written and read a lot of literary and critical theory, as well as a fair amount of history (mostly dealing with the time period from the late Roman to the early Middle Ages). I got into English because I have been fascinated with stories and writing since I was small and, frankly, it is one of the few things I am pretty good at doing (in my opinion). As for history, I just find people in both the past and present fascinating. People are weird and have always been weird. I’ve been playing video games since the days of the NES, though I didn’t really get into gaming until I played Super Mario World. It almost seemed like magic watching that colorful, little plumber go on his adventure to save Dinosaur Land. Since then, I haven’t even considered NOT playing video games. Since I can write reasonably well, I decided that I wanted to write about them, though admittedly that dream was a huge leap of faith. So far, I’ve been pretty successful, writing for Game Informer, Official Xbox Magazine, Gameranx, and GamesRadar. I’m passionate about competitive gaming, or eSports, in particular StarCraft 2 and Street Fighter. Some other interesting stuff about me: I write creatively in my free time when I feel like letting off some steam or when I want to frustrate myself with writer’s block. I’ve published a book of poetry and short stories called "The Speech.” I'm never fully satisfied with it, so I constantly make revisions to improve the text. I read ALL THE TIME. Some of my favorite books, in no particular order, are: Out of the Silent Planet, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Scaramouche, and Lord of the Rings. I love Star Wars. I think that “love” might be a bit of an understatement. I watch Star Wars when I am sad, happy, stressed, or baking/cooking. There are just so many things that are perfect about it, it boggles my mind. I can play the trumpet, bass guitar, euphonium, and baritone (euphoniums, baritones, and trumpets are essentially the same thing so not as impressive as it sounds). I’m sort-of fluent in Spanish and I have an obsession with Godzilla and giant robots. Ultimate Frisbee is pretty much the only sport at which I am proficient. I like Indian/spicy food. Video game music soundtracks and remixes are amazing. Some that stand out to me are Kow Otani’s “Roar of the Earth” from Shadow of the Colossus, the Red Dead Redemption soundtrack, Legend of Zelda orchestral songs, and the Harry-Gregson Williams composed Metal Gear Solid soundtracks. Also, OCRemix is pretty much the best thing. A few of my favorite games: Shadow of the Colossus, Super Mario World, Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, Ace Combat 5, StarCraft 2, league of Legends Earth Defense Force 2017, Mass Effect series, Minecraft, Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros Melee/Brawl, League of Legends, Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Amnesia the Dark Descent (I have a hard time picking favorites…). Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @Riverboatjack I play a lot of League of Legends, so let me know if you want to join me during one of my late-night gaming sessions! I also have a website where I consolidate my work that is still under construction, a YouTube channel called Digi Brothers where my friend Cory and I play video games (currently on prolonged hiatus), and I co-host a rather easy-going gaming podcast called The Jacked-Up Indie and Mojo Show or The JIM Show (which has since been reformatted and relaunched as The Best Games Period). As someone who spent a number of years working with children as a camp counselor and cares deeply about the well-being of kids, I’m really excited to be working with Extra Life and helping in the small capacity that I can to bolster what I think is a fantastic organization. Hopefully, you’ll stick around, comment, have a good time, and when Game Day comes around we can have another record-setting Extra Life! Let’s all work together and create a positive, happy, and awesome space for gamers.
