  1. 2019 marks the fifth year Kinda Funny has participated in Extra Life and the first year the organization has broken the elusive $100,000 USD barrier! The fan-centered company began in 2015 after its four founders left IGN and began an incredibly popular podcasting and gaming network. Members of their community became known as "best friends," a collection of people who fostered their fandom and connected respectfully with one another. One of the best friends, Eric Thompson, created Team Kinda Funny to bring the community, and eventually the full organization, into the effort to help kids across the US and Canada. That first year, Team Kinda Funny was able to more than double their initial goal of $25,000 USD to raise over $50,000 USD for the kids! Since then, Team Kinda Funny has made a habit of breaking through expectations. The team has now raised well over $400,000 USD for kids across North America since they got their start! That's the kind of achievement that truly touches countless lives and helps more children than we can wrap our heads around. The way the team has come together over the years was compiled into an almost hour-long documentary about Kinda Funny and its wonderful community of best friends. Donations were raised via streaming on Game Day and extra efforts like holding shirt design contests and putting those designs up for sale. This year's design was created by Cameron Kennedy, host of Important Business. You can grab the shirt for a limited time, with all profits from the shirt going to Extra Life and helping Kinda Funny set their fundraising bar even higher for next year! Team Kinda Funny's fundraising page really says it all: Everyday, we hear your stories about how video games better your life; how they help you cope with stress and give you a place to escape the world around you. Some of you have shared how video games have helped you through tough times, including times of serious illness. We know how important gaming is to you, and we’re a part of Extra Life because it’s an opportunity for us, as a gaming community, and as a community of best friends, to make a real change in the lives of sick children. The bulk of 2019's donations that contributed toward Team Kinda Funny's smashing success went to three hospitals: UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals in Oakland, California, Sanford Children's in Fargo, North Dakota, and Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in Valhalla, New York. The opportunities Team Kinda Funny has made possible in those locations and numerous other places across the continent can't be overstated. We want to say thank you to the wonderful people who have come together over the past five years to make some good in the world, both the best friends in Kinda Funny's community, the personalities on screen or on mic during streams, and the people working hard behind the scenes to make it all happen. You're incredible and we can't wait to see all of the amazing things you're going to do for the community and the world. It's never too late to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! Donations for 2019 are accepted year-round!

  3. Tomorrow marks the beginning of Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) weekend. This will be the fifth year the show has been put on and Extra Life is happy to be a part of the event. You will be able to see us from our traditional booth presence on the show floor as well as during various stretches of time on the EGLX main stage. The weekend will be highlighting a number of streamers and special guests from both the game industry and SickKids, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital in Toronto. EGLX 2019 takes place from October 18-20 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto. The event brings gamers from across Canada together to celebrate gaming. There are both casual and competitive tournaments, live shows, free play areas for casual, communal gaming, unique convention storefronts, as well as recently released and upcoming games from indie studios and AAA publishers. The list of confirmed guests includes the likes of Kinda Funny Games' Greg, Nick, and Andy, the creators of Death Battle, the team behind Game Attack, and Kris Wilson of Cyanide & Happiness. Extra Life will be appearing on the main stage throughout the event during 10 minute intervals that EGLX has been gracious enough to provide for us. We'll be talking about Extra Life's wider mission to help kids in Canada and the United States while also getting into more specifics about Toronto's own SickKids hospital. Keep your eyes peeled for a lengthier appearance on Sunday where Extra Life will be taking the stage for a full half-hour along with a Champion Child from SickKids. If you will be at the event in person, be sure to stop by and say hello at booth 311. We will have our own free play stations, host a rotation of special guests for attendees to interact and play with, and be giving away prizes sponsored by Arozzi Gaming Chairs, Dell, and more! The booth will be staffed by employees from SickKids, Extra Lifers, and maybe even one of the kids who has been helped by Extra Life donations. SickKids, also known as The Hospital for Sick Children, is one of the most research-oriented hospitals in Canada. It offers cutting-edge care, both specialized and general, for kids in the Toronto area and beyond. Their goal is to keep pushing the boundaries of care to make sure that every child receives comprehensive, safe, and effective care. To learn more or participate in raising money for SickKids through Extra Life, you can head over to: SKExtraLife.com. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  5. Growing out of a group of podcasters who left IGN, Kinda Funny Games has become something of a force in the game industry due to the popularity of their shows and the massive support of their fans through Patreon. The lovable presence of Greg Miller, Nick Scarpino, and Tim Gettys has fueled their rise - along with a keen sense of when to seize an opportunity. When Sony announced that the PlayStation Experience would not be happening this year, the team began crafting their own industry show to fill the void the indie-oriented PSX had left behind. “I’ve always loved how Geoff’s Game Awards dovetail with PlayStation’s PSX. The Game Awards take care of all the huge news, announcements, and trailers, and then PSX offers a lower key, fan/dev-focused event where other — often smaller — games can shine. With it taking 2018 off, we thought it would be a great opportunity to take it upon ourselves to offer game makers a platform to celebrate their work.” said Greg Miller one of the co-hosts of the Kinda Funny podcast. And what a celebration they have planned. The showcase will make a splash having lined up over 60 titles to share with the world during the hour-long Twitch livestream. Several titles shown during the broadcast will be released to the world simultaneously, which certainly lends the showcase an extra bit of intrigue. So far Sega, Humble Bundle, Devolver Digital, Drinkbox Studios, and Bithell Games have all confirmed to be attending and bringing something (or perhaps multiple somethings) to present to the world. “The whole Kinda Funny team are champions of positivity and kindness within games culture,” said Mike Bithell (Thomas Was Alone, Volume). “When Greg told me they were working on a showcase to celebrate games and those who make and play them, I jumped at the chance to be a part of it. I can’t wait to see what they’ve made, and I can’t wait to share a fun surprise with their fantastic community.” You can catch the Kinda Funny Games Showcase this Saturday, December 8, at 10 AM on the company's Twitch channel.
