  1. Last week, thousands flocked to Anaheim, California to attend the tenth annual VidCon event. From July 10 – 13, showgoers were able to rub shoulders with the major players on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and other platforms that foster video content. On top of a chance to meet some of the best creators in the industry, VidCon attendees could participate in a wide variety of fun activities like obstacle courses, themed experiences, panels, and games. Of course, Extra Life had to be a part of the show, too. We were able to hold a presence there with the help of the Orange Country Extra Life Guild, who turned out to staff the booth and talk with people at the con. Sadly, we didn't have a human claw machine this time. However with the help of our incredible volunteers, we were able to engage with an incredible number of people despite all of the incredible attractions surrounding Extra Life booth. Logan, one of Extra Life’s national champions from Children’s Hospital of Orange County, was able to make it out to VidCon along with us. Logan has a rare heart condition that he has lived with since birth and have necessitated multiple open heart surgeries throughout his life. You might remember Logan from his time helping to serve as the face of Extra Life at E3 both last year and again this year. For a long time, Logan has been a fan of Jack Douglass, a YouTuber better known as jacksfilms. We were able to help Logan meet Jack at VidCon this year. Seeing the two connect stood out as a really heart-warming moment from a weekend full of amazing things. When the dust settled on VidCon, we had signed up over 700 new participants people for Extra Life. That’s freaking amazing! We want to extend a HUGE thank you to the people who volunteered their time to help us make that happen from the Orange County Guild. Your help really meant the world to us and helped to put together a hugely successful presence at VidCon. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you. We also want to thank VidCon and the awesome creators we were able to meet who met with us. Here’s hoping that 2019 was just the beginning with bigger and better things waiting for Extra Life in 2020. Let’s go forward together and keep fighting… For the Kids!

  3. Another year, another E3! Jack and Naomi are back together again and are joined by Marcus Stewart and Zak Wojnar. Together, the group has assembled to help parse the massive number of games and experiences brought on by the year's biggest gaming trade show. They will be doing daily recaps of each day of the event, cataloging what they've seen and played. With this first recap, the convention center in LA hasn't even opened yet, but the press conferences are all but complete (with the sole exception of Nintendo). The four industry professionals give you the best insight we have into what's been announced and what it might mean.

  5. 2017 was the second year that my wife and I coordinated Extra Life. We learned a lot from both events and are happy to share our details below: 2017: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jim-butts/extra-life-wrap-up-2017-chicago-nerdery/10100508101971858/ 2016: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jim-butts/extra-life-wrap-up-2016-chicago-nerdery/10100267867473718/ Feel free to post feedback and also share your stories!
  6. Hi y'all! For those of you who were able to make it to the kickoff, THANK YOU for coming out and brainstorming ideas for Extra Life in Denver for 2016 and playing games with Anissa and her family! It meant so much to them that they can come be a part of something with which they truly have a connection and interest. We talked about a lot of things that we could implement this year, but I think our most pertinent consensus was that Extra Life needs to be a bigger deal in this market. That means the recruitment, involvement, participation, awareness, and dedication has to be improved. Denver has such amazing potential as one of the biggest gaming communities in the country, and we want to take advantage of that! So! Here are some upcoming events that we should start talking about in terms of getting Extra Life represented: Colorado Rocket League Championship Tournament: April 10 http://clutcharena.com/denver-rocket-league-tournament/ Anime Southwest: April 29 - May 1 http://sukoshicon.com/wordpress/ Cheyenne Comic Con: May 13-15 http://www.cheyennecomiccon.com/ Denver Comic Con (we may have a booth for this, so please let me know if you're interested and available to help work it!): June 17-19 http://denvercomiccon.com/ Fort Collins Comic Con: August 26-28 https://fococomiccon.com/ Colorado Springs Comic Con: (also) August 26-28 http://www.cscomiccon.com/ I would love to support anyone who is willing and able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life with materials. Please let me know if you are interested in helping with any of these events by emailing me at kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org. The deadline to sign up for Denver Comic Con assistance is Wednesday, March 30th. Recurring Events: Smash Bros Night: Tuesday nights, 7pm, Clutch Gaming Arena http://clutcharena.com/ League of Legends Team Building Meetup: Wednesday nights, 6pm, Clutch Gaming Arena https://calendar.google.com/calendar/render?eid=NW1mcWFxOXBiOGp1M2RmbmJrZnJpdG03ZXNfMjAxNjAzMTBUMDEwMDAwWiBqdXN0aW5AY2x1dGNoYXJlbmEuY29t&ctz=America/Denver&sf=true&output=xml#eventpage_6 Conclave of Gamers events: Daily http://cog16.sched.org/ Opportunities: Game nights with patients and families at Children's Hospital Colorado Teen Zone Monthly meetups - bowling, laser tag, etc? Partnerships: Gamer's Haven Game Stop Used game shops Wizard's Chest Pepsi Center Celebrities/Sports Icons These opportunities are just ideas to start with - if you have a connection with any game shops, sports teams, etc. - USE THEM. This is your chance to spread the word! We'll start with that, I know that's already plenty of information. Please let me know if you're able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life. In the meantime, get your friends on board, start some connections, and let's get gaming! Cheers, Kacie Children's Miracle Network Coordinator, Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org 720-777-1711
  7. Hi everybody! I just wanted to stop by and thank you everyone who came out to help out at the Baltimore Comic Con this weekend! We had an awesome time and managed to get 81 pen and paper signatures and directed even more people to our website to register. With all the buttons we gave out and pictures that were taken of our banner I feel confident that we broke the 100 mark. Thank you all so much for your help! For the kids!
  8. Sonic, Rayman, Luigi, Pokémon, Professor Layton, and Zelda, for your quick stop on what was covered during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, look no further! We’ve got you covered. Satoru Iwata, global president of Nintendo, began the proceedings by digging into the upcoming Sonic Lost World. The Wii U title will feature three speeds, accommodating players of all skill levels and adding a greater degree of control over the blue hedgehog. Iwata also revealed that Sonic will be able to use “color powers” giving sonic different abilities like tunneling through dirt or transforming into a bird-creature. A 3DS version of the title will also be available. Players will be able to link a 3DS copy of Lost World with a Wii U version, importing player-created radio-controlled vehicles, which they can control on the Wii U using their 3DS. This effectively means that two friends who own the 3DS and Wii U versions can play co-operatively on the Wii U version. Sonic Lost World will release October 22. Iwata moved on to discuss Rayman Legends, which was supposed to release at the beginning of this summer, but was pushed back to the beginning of fall to release across all platforms besides the Wii U. Basically, this section of the Direct was to say, “Hey, remember how cool this game looked several months ago? It is still coming out and it still has unique Wii U GamePad functionality!” So, to reiterate, up to five players can cooperate to beat the various levels, four players on controllers and one on the GamePad. The GamePad player will have access to unique ways to influence the game world unavailable to other players. The only bit of real information was that there will be downloadable Mario and Luigi costumes for the Wii U version. Rayman Legends releases September 3 The Direct then spent some time on Ark Academy SketchPad, a downloadable software program from the eShop that will allow users to use the Wii U GamePad to create artwork. Users will be able to take screenshots of their art and share it with other users via Nintendo’s online services. Though Ark Academy launches August 9, community support will be available a few days later. Iwata also mentioned briefly that Nintendo is working on another Ark Academy title that will include detailed drawing lessons. Following the announcement regarding Ark Academy, Erik Peterson from the Treehouse division of Nintendo of America came on to discuss North American releases of Nintendo titles. Peterson kicked things off with a reminder that Pikmin 3 released and has a way of taking in-game screenshots with the GamePad controller. Players can then caption and share these pictures. If this doesn’t sound like a recipe for the kind of mischief that Nintendo has notoriously cracked down upon, I don’t know what does. Peterson also made sure to remind everyone that the Mario and Luigi Dream Team will be released on August 11 for the 3DS. Pokémon Rumble U was revealed and discussed shortly after Peterson gave an overview of Dream Team. The Wii U eShop title features frantic toy Pokémon vs. toy Pokémon action over the course of 70 levels. Following each level players will have a chance of befriending the Pokémon defeated in battle. All 649 Pokémon that have appeared through Black version 2 and White version 2 will be present and playable. Players will be able to buy figurines at participating retailers and transport them into the game via a scanner on the Wii U GamePad, similar to the popular Skylanders series. Peterson assured everyone that these figurines are completely optional and will not be necessary to see everything. Pokémon Rumble U hits the digital shelves August 29. Other downloadable titles are heading to the 3DS eShop. Retro classics like the original Donkey Kong (August 15), Tecmo Bowl (sometime before football season starts), Wario Land 3 (August 29), and Super Mario Bros. 3 (later this year) will be making their way to the eShop over the course of this year. While Peterson wasn’t able to reveal much information, he did confirm that Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy will be coming next year as well as the long awaited Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney. Satoru Iwata took over the briefing once again. This time, he was dropping some interesting new tidbits regarding The Legend of Zelda series. He began by pointing out that the logo for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds had not one, but two triforces, one that we are familiar with and another that appears as a shadow. He hinted that this shadow triforce might play a large role in A Link Between Worlds. Iwata also went into a bit more detail about how The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds are related. A Link Between Worlds takes place far in the future, many years after A Link to the Past. The main character is not the same Link, but an entirely new Link. While the normal world of A Link Between Worlds is the same as A Link to the Past, the “other” world seen in the trailers and gameplay from A Link Between Worlds, might not be the Dark World from A Link to the Past. A bit confusing, I know, but whatever the Zelda continuity, A Link Between Worlds is coming to 3DS this November. Iwata also discussed a few of the changes Nintendo has included in the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker. The team has fine-tuned the collection in the last half of the game, presumably making it a bit easier and including less backtracking. They’ve also adjusted wind control actions, which can now be adjusted in any direction instead of fumbling repeatedly with that dang wind baton when you get the direction wrong. Finally, they added a high-speed sailing mode to alleviate some of the tedium players experienced sailing the long stretches of empty ocean. Windwaker HD will be available this October. Luigi was also confirmed for the Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros. titles, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise, but I suppose it is nice to know nonetheless. Following the success of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Iwata announced a new Animal Crossing community on Wii U and a downloadable Animal Crossing Plaza for the Wii U. Animal Crossing Plaza allows players to share screenshots with other players, send messages, see residents from other towns, share clothing designs, post about specific animals, and see updates from your 3DS town. You can download the Plaza now on Wii U. Finally, Iwata concluded yesterday’s Nintendo Direct by announcing that the Platinum Games title Wonderful 101 will be receiving its own Nintendo Direct this Friday August 9, 7 AM PT. As always, you can view the latest Nintendo Direct for yourself. What do you guys think? Interested in a Wii U or 3DS? Is Nintendo doing what it needs to in order to succeed?
