  1. Join in the fun tomorrow as one of our most dedicated Extra Lifers kicks off a 12 hour charity marathon! Aureylian will be playing a variety of games (and even doing some live singing!) on her Twitch stream while working to raise $12,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. There will be a number of incentives for fundraising including pies to the face, gift packages, and more! If you aren't aware, Aureylian has been participating in Extra Life for the past five years making use of her platform as a Twitch Ambassador to help kids in her local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. She regularly gives key note speeches at TwitchCon, Twitch's PAX events, appears prominently in Mindcrack events, and served as a co-host for MineCon Earth in 2018. Her streaming channel is best known for Minecraft and The Sims, but she also branches out into a variety of FPS games. She even played a part in Michelle Obama's Twitch stream that was held for #CollegeSigningDay alongside Ninja and Anne Munition! Over the past several years, Aureylian has raised over $47,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. With her goal this year, she's hoping to reach or surpass the $60,000 USD mark. She boasts a following of over 150,000 on Twitch and just shy of 300,000 on YouTube. She has been one of our biggest supporters, earning her the title of Extra Life Ambassador for 2019. We are so proud to be able to work with such a positive force in the gaming community to build something amazing for children across the United States and Canada. If you are curious about what will be going down on the stream itself, a wide variety of activities are planned. The action will start off with a chill morning stream of the house renovation game House Flipper at 8am PT. Following that, get ready for some spooky fun at 10am PT with a playthrough of a Minecraft adventure set in an eerie realm. Speaking of realms, the latest expansion for The Sims, Realm of Magic, will be up at 12pm PT. Subnautica will be the core afternoon game from 2pm PT until 4pm PT. In the late afternoon and into the evening, Aureylian will be putting her voice to the test with two hours of Twitch Sings where donors will choose which songs she belts out live until 6pm PT. The last two hour segment of the stream will be either Green Hell Game or Resident Evil II depending on whether donors have reached the $5,000 USD incentive mark. There will be plenty of other things popping up on the stream on top of all of that, from guests to incentive breaks to giveaways. It's gonna be a great time! Finally, Aureylian's Twitch stream has been sponsored by MadeGood, a company that produces organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO snacks for kids in a facility free from the 8 common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, fish and shellfish. At least one of the prizes being given away during her stream will consist of a MadeGood giveaway. One of the really neat things about this sponsorship is that during the month of October, MadeGood will be donating a portion of their Chocolate Chip Granola Mini Bar sales to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! These bars are limited and will only be sold during the month of October, so get 'em while they're hot from most major retailers or online through Amazon or MadeGood itself! If you have any questions about the product, be sure to reach out to MadeGood's social media presence on Twitter: @MadeGoodFoods. Be sure to tune in to Aureylian's Twitch stream any time tomorrow from 8am PT until 8pm PT. Hope we'll see you there! 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!

  3. TwitchCon has come and gone leaving all of us with unforgettable memories and marking some impressive achievements for the Extra Life community. Thousands of TwitchCon attendees descended upon the San Diego Convention Center and were exposed to Extra Life. Hundreds flocked to the booth and the human claw machine to sign up to support their local hospital. It was an incredibly moving experience that left everyone involved with memories that will last for years to come. The Human Claw Machine represented a major part of Extra Life's presence at TwitchCon 2019. A giant contraption capable of lifting attendees and lowering them into a pit full of mystery prizes, it definitely drew a crowd of both experienced Extra Lifers and curious newbies. One of the people who stopped by was Ryan from Flocker.tv, one of Extra Life's sponsors. Ryan has five years of Extra Life under his belt and raises funds for The Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, a place that gave him a life-saving heart surgery when he was a kid. He was one of the people who helped make Extra Life North a resounding success, too! While we were at TwitchCon, it was an honor for our Community Director, Lou Adducci, to appear as a guest in an interview on Cheddar Esports, a live gaming news show that airs on Twitch. You can catch the segment on Twitter and hear Lou talk about how amazing The Human Claw Machine is in person. As part of a collaboration with Astro Gaming, Extra Life gave away codes for Astro's line of headsets. Winners were sent emails with codes and a link to use when redeeming the headsets online. If you were one of the lucky winners and are having trouble with either receiving your code or its redemption, our support team has a few steps to follow: If you won and haven't been able to locate your code, check your spam folder. Unfortunately, some of our notifications to winners have gotten stuck in the spam folder. If the code hasn't been caught by the spam filter, please reach out via email to support@extra-life.org. We'll have someone look into your issue as fast as we can. If you have your code and are encountering difficulty in redeeming your prize, support@extra-life.org should be your go-to solution. In your email, include the email address you gave to the redemption kiosk, the code in question, the URL they are using to redeem their prize, and a description of the issue. Thank you to all of our partners for helping us to give our community an unforgettable TwitchCon experience and bring even more people to the cause. It was incredible seeing everyone working together to bring Extra Life to as many people as possible. Let's keep going forward and gaming For The Kids!

  5. We are very proud to say that Extra Life North will be this weekend! The event will take place in Winnipeg at the Bold Commerce headquarters from September 7-8. With the backing of dozens of organizations, Extra Life North has been created to be a focal point for Extra Life in Canada. All of the money raised at Extra Life North will go to Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. Extra Life North has been organized largely by Nadia Selby, Bold Commerce's culture and event specialist. The event will be held inside Bold's impressive headquarters which can accommodate over 235 gamers as well as support volunteers, spectators, and special guests. Between September 7th and the 8th, the gamers who registered prior to this week will be doing their own 24-hour gaming marathon in order to help the kids of Manitoba. While the gamers play and raise money, plenty will be going on in and around Bold Commerce HQ. Ace Burpee, the most popular morning radio host in Winnipeg will be lending his talents to the event. The host will MC the event with 103 Virgin Radio Live broadcasting from the gaming space. Additional guests will be spaced throughout the day. One such guest will be Nathan Beaulieu, defenseman for the Winnipeg Jets, will be on hand to compete against a number of the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba's Champion Kids (in video games, not ice hockey). The media on hand will even get in on the competition, too! To top if off, the Royal Bank of Canada Olympians will be joining the fun. Jill Officer, an Olympic gold medalist and holder of two World Curling Championship titles, and James Lavallée, a current member of the Canadian Olympic kayak team, will be making appearances throughout the event. Spectators will be allowed into the event to watch the gaming action, talk with volunteers, and see the celebrities. Doors open for spectators on Saturday at 11:30am and close again at 6pm. Doors will reopen on Sunday at 9am and remain open until 1pm. After everyone checks in and gets settled, Extra Life North will kick off with a brief opening ceremony hosted by Ace Burpee. Gamers will begin playing for the kids at 1pm. Food will be provided throughout the event for gamers and volunteers. Special events will help break up the gaming sessions, like Champion Kids challenging others to video game competitions and a variety of yet-to-be-revealed side games. Miracle Kids and their families will also be sharing their stories periodically throughout the days. It'll be a great time to be there for gaming or just to watch! Extra Life North has set a goal of raising $50,000 USD over the course of their event. That might seem like a tall order, but thankfully the event has the support of 25 wonderful sponsors. Bold Commerce, of course, gave the event space and helped organize it. Flocker, a platform that helps streamers and influencers to design merchandise, membership programs, and take donations, is helping to elevate Extra Life North's stream to the front page of Twitch. The Royal Bank of Canada also pitched in to bring high-profile guests and eyeballs to the event. Dozens of others are helping to provide food and supplies as well as other forms of support. Our community coming together to make Extra Life North a success leaves us so hopeful about the future of Extra Life. While the registration for Extra Life North has closed, you can still participate in Extra Life along with the gamers in Winnipeg or plan your own events for Game Day on November 2nd. Join us and help kids in your local area today. 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! View full article

  7. This past weekend, gamers from all over the world traveled to Seattle, Washington to attend PAX West, one of the largest gaming conventions in North America. Of course, where there are gamers there are also Extra Lifers! Extra Life turned out for PAX West in a big way, coming to the event with a booth, a panel, and moving stories from the kids themselves. The dedicated Extra Life booth has become a staple of events around the United States and Canada. For PAX West, we were set up in a nice corner between two of the major convention halls on the 4th floor of the Seattle Convention Center. The location afforded a degree of protection from the overwhelming noise of the show floor proper, allowing the amazing volunteers from the Seattle Extra Life Guild to have amazing conversations with con-goers. We were fortunate for PAX West to have a miracle child ambassador from Seattle Children's Hospital. Kennedy and her father volunteered at the Extra Life booth, sharing their stories with people who stopped by to say hello. Not only that, but Kennedy was able to tour the show floor and experience one of the most amazing events in gaming. Their help was invaluable in demonstrating the good that Extra Life does in the lives of those it touches. In total, over 700 people decided to sign up to participate in Game Day! That's freaking amazing! This year, Extra Life's Game Day takes place on November 2, so make sure that you've also signed up over on Extra Life. To top off the booth experience at PAX West, we were able to reveal a special collaboration with gaming chair manufacturer DXRacer. They graciously gave us an incredible version of one of their chairs decked out in Extra Life's colors and the iconic gaming controller with wings. We decided to put the chair up for auction to raise some additional money, so please check out the eBay page and place your bids before the opportunity disappears forever in only a handful of hours! A big thank you to KontrolFreek for taking on the task of organizing an Extra Life scavenger hunt, as well. PAX West attendees could obtain a card at KontrolFreek's booth and then needed to visit Astro, Gunnar, and Extra Life's booth to fill it up. Once filled, the card could be turned in for a chance to win a prize that changed daily. KontrolFreek organized all of the partnered organizations to support this event and deserve all our love and gratitude. Finally, Extra Life was included in an official PAX West panel. The talk, titled Gaming for "Charity: Inspiring Through Play," provided an informed look at how to engage communities effectively to gain charitable support for a good cause and how that scales depending on the size of a person's audience. The panelists included Extra Life ambassadors TheOnlyRyann and Deejay Knight, I Need Diverse Games' Tanya DePass, Twitch's Jon Brence, Child's Play's Erick Blandin, and Extra Life's very own director of community Lou Adducci. It was inspiring to see people turn out to listen to all of these talented and important voices in the industry tell stories about their experiences and share their expertise. With PAX West in the rear view mirror, TwitchCon 2019 approaches! On September 27-29, the streaming community will gather for their yearly celebration of their primary platform. Extra Life will be there with the customary booth in order to represent Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, but we will be bringing back one of our most popular event spectacles: The human claw machine! DonorDrive will be hosting a charity streaming area called the DonorDrive Charity Arcade. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has been selected as one of the premier charities that the arcade will raise money for during TwitchCon. Attendees will be able to grab free prizes as they dangle above a pit of mystery prizes, suspended by a huge claw machine. Don't miss us if you're planning on attending!

  9. PAX West, the annual gaming convention held annually in Seattle, Washington, will be happening this weekend, and we'd love to see you there! This year, the event runs from August 30 through September 2. We've got several initiatives that will be of interest to people attending the show in person or observing from afar. Here's everything you need to know about Extra Life at PAX West 2019! We will, of course, have a dedicated Extra Life booth at the event. PAX West will feature a stellar area run with the invaluable support of the Seattle Extra Life Guild. Not only that, but Kennedy, a miracle child from Seattle Children's Hospital and member of the Seattle Guild, will be on hand on Sunday with her father to say hello, too. The people working the booth are volunteering their time to register participants, collect donations, and confirm when attendees share about Extra Life on social media. Doing each will net attendees distinct buttons, while doing all three will get attendees a sweet enamel pin. We are so incredibly thankful for our volunteers, without whom none of this would be possible, and our words can't do them justice. If you are attending the show in person, KontrolFreek has organized an Extra Life scavenger hunt! After visiting KontrolFreek's booth to obtain a punch card, attendees will need to track down the Astro, Gunnar, and Extra Life booths to fill it out. Once the card has been filled, head back to the KontrolFreek booth to enter to win a neat prize that will change daily. For those who won't be able to attend in person, there's still a chance to get your hands on something truly special. We have a customized Extra Life DXRacer chair for this event! We are incredibly excited about it. Both show attendees and Extra Lifers who aren't at PAX West will be able to bid on the chair via an eBay. Keep an eye on our social media channels for the announcement that bidding is live! On top of that, Extra Life will be included in an official PAX West panel. The talk, titled Gaming for "Charity: Inspiring Through Play," will be held in the Sandworm Theater. The panelists include Extra Lifer TheOnlyRyann, I Need Diverse Games' Tanya DePass, Twitch's Jon Brence, Child's Play's Erick Blandin, and our own senior manager of community Lou Adducci.

  10. PAX West, the annual gaming convention held annually in Seattle, Washington, will be happening this weekend, and we'd love to see you there! This year, the event runs from August 30 through September 2. We've got several initiatives that will be of interest to people attending the show in person or observing from afar. Here's everything you need to know about Extra Life at PAX West 2019! We will, of course, have a dedicated Extra Life booth at the event. PAX West will feature a stellar area run with the invaluable support of the Seattle Extra Life Guild. Not only that, but Kennedy, a miracle child from Seattle Children's Hospital and member of the Seattle Guild, will be on hand on Sunday with her father to say hello, too. The people working the booth are volunteering their time to register participants, collect donations, and confirm when attendees share about Extra Life on social media. Doing each will net attendees distinct buttons, while doing all three will get attendees a sweet enamel pin. We are so incredibly thankful for our volunteers, without whom none of this would be possible, and our words can't do them justice. If you are attending the show in person, KontrolFreek has organized an Extra Life scavenger hunt! After visiting KontrolFreek's booth to obtain a punch card, attendees will need to track down the Astro, Gunnar, and Extra Life booths to fill it out. Once the card has been filled, head back to the KontrolFreek booth to enter to win a neat prize that will change daily. For those who won't be able to attend in person, there's still a chance to get your hands on something truly special. We have a customized Extra Life DXRacer chair for this event! We are incredibly excited about it. Both show attendees and Extra Lifers who aren't at PAX West will be able to bid on the chair via an eBay. Keep an eye on our social media channels for the announcement that bidding is live! On top of that, Extra Life will be included in an official PAX West panel. The talk, titled Gaming for "Charity: Inspiring Through Play," will be held in the Sandworm Theater. The panelists include Extra Lifer TheOnlyRyann, I Need Diverse Games' Tanya DePass, Twitch's Jon Brence, Child's Play's Erick Blandin, and our own senior manager of community Lou Adducci. The discussion will get into the nitty-gritty of fundraising and community building necessary for people to do the most good with their gaming efforts. The panel begins at 12pm and goes until 1pm.

  11. Earlier this month, Ashley Gorecki toured Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida. While there had been many changes in the years since she had last walked those halls, the place still held a special place in her heart. She lives in a different state now, but she's never forgotten the hospital that saved her life. When she was four years old, Gorecki spent 18 weeks with doctors scrambling to diagnose her affliction. As her condition worsened, doctors finally discovered that she had a condition called Septic Arthritic Hip and sent her in for immediate surgery. She doesn't remember much from that time, not the surgery or much more than bits and pieces from the recovery. However, she treasures memories of the time she spent playing in the halls of the hospital, riding around with her mother, and the view of the sunny sands and beaches from the play area on the rooftop. Above all, Goreck recalls the care she received from the doctors at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. With their help, she was able to endure and thrive in the hospital following her surgery, the time she spent under the care of an at-home nurse, and wearing the "dolphin box" - an IV pack that made squeaking noises. "I was a sick kid," she explained, "but I was still able to be a kid." Life has taken Gorecki interesting places. She now works as a graphic designer and uses her spare time to create arts and crafts. She felt inspired by her grandmother, a skilled seamstress that left her in awe. Under the tutelage of her grandmother, she learned the ins and outs of sewing machines and learned how to crochet from her aunt. Her mother passed on her enthusiasm for crafting by handmaking the majority of their Christmas ornaments as well as a passion for painting. In high school, she picked up photography, a skill that has stuck with her ever since. All of that has now come together in a brand called A Hare Affair, a handmade crafting circle that aims to pass on a bit of Gorecki's passion to the rest of the world. She does this through her Twitch channel where she streams her artistic endeavors and brings other crafters together from across the planet. "I was raised by a mother who never stopped giving, even if it was all she had. As I got older, I continued to want to do something for the hospital that helped my family so much," says Gorecki. "We watched all the telethons while I was growing up and I had grand plans for doing something to help other kids who are going through what I went through." That attitude brought her to a place where she uses her platform as a crafting livestreamer to raise money for Extra Life. So far, under her streamer name, AHareAffair, Gorecki has raised almost $4,500 for the kids at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. In 2019 alone, she's sitting at an incredible $2,815 as the captain of her Extra Life team, The Carrot Patch! You can support Gorecki and the kids at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital by donating to her AHareAffair Extra Life fundraiser. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart, the tip of my crochet hook, and from the big dent in my left hip! Let’s do something good together!" - Ashley Gorecki Remember, you can be a hero like Ashley by signing up for Extra Life today and helping sick and injured kids in hospitals across the US and Canada!

  13. It appears that Nintendo will no longer be trying to shake money out of streamers and video creators. The company has announced that they are changing their policy on what is and is not acceptable use of their games on various media platforms like YouTube and Facebook. You can read the full list of changes along with a Q&A section for clarifications on the Nintendo website. "We are humbled every day by your loyalty and passion for Nintendo's games, characters and worlds, and respect that you want to be able to express yourself creatively by sharing your own original videos and images using content from our games," reads the opening of their statement on the matter. A list of the changes to Nintendo's policy with some explanations and expansions: "You may monetize your videos and channels using the monetization methods separately specified by Nintendo" - so far these include the ones included below: Facebook - Facebook Gaming Creators, Facebook Level Up Program Niconico Douga/Niconico Live - Niconico Creators Program, Niconico Channel OPENREC.tv - OPENREC Creators Program Twitch - Twitch Affiliate Program and Twitch Partner Program Twitter - Amplify Publisher Program YouTube - YouTube Partner Program. "We encourage you to create videos that include your creative input and commentary. Videos and images that contain mere copies of Nintendo Game Content without creative input or commentary are not permitted." - Basically, you can create Let's Plays, walkthroughs, and more as long as you aren't just reposting Nintendo content or silently playing through the game (though there's a strange caveat to that last point that allows people to post gameplay and screenshots if they use the built-in system features like the capture button on the Switch). "You are only permitted to use Nintendo Game Content that has been officially released, or from promotional materials officially released by Nintendo (such as product trailers or Nintendo Directs)." - DON'T SNITCH "If you want to use the intellectual property of a third party, you are responsible for obtaining any necessary third-party permissions." - Nintendo doesn't have time to secure other companies permissions for some of its products, aint no one got time for the legality of other companies. "You are not permitted to imply or state that your videos are officially affiliated with or sponsored by Nintendo." - Pretty simple. None of that, "My uncle works at Nintendo so I am sponsored by Nintendo!" malarkey. "We reserve the right to remove any content that we believe is unlawful, infringing, inappropriate, or not in line with these Guidelines." - This translates roughly to mean that they can still put copyright strikes on videos that they feel stray too far from these guidelines. Basically, the changes they announced mean that people will finally be able to stream and make videos about Nintendo games and receive the full revenue from those videos, which should be great news to all of the gaming creators out there. This represents a big change from the Big N's attempt to capitalize on their fandom by automatically monetizing video content featuring its games on YouTube and pocketing the revenue - a system it updated in 2015 with its Nintendo Creators Program that offered participants 60-70% of the revenue from their videos. It remains unclear at this time whether this means the Nintendo Creators Program will disappear entirely or evolve into something different. Honestly, this is pretty awesome.

  15. Brazilian Twitch streamer Luality has been on an epic quest (or at the very least a sidequest) to see what her pet bunny can accomplish in the PS4 action-RPG Bloodborne. If you're wondering how exactly a bunny might play through an action-RPG known for its difficulty, the answer seems to be, "not well, but well enough to win." With significant coaxing, the little rabbit hops around on a repurposed Dance Dance Revolution dance pad to laboriously move its in-game avatar. The project kicked off with the attempt to kill a single enemy about a week ago, with the deadly encounter lasting under a minute. However, the next logical challenge was going toe-to-toe with the Cleric Beast, Bloodborne's first boss. The fight seemingly took place on a New Game + character that possessed a large amount of health and a weapon only obtainable later on in the game. So, capable of taking numerous hits, beast fought Beast. Take a look at their tense (and adorable) battle below: Amazing and inspiring. Good job, bunny! ❤️ 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!

  20. So I was thinking about devoting a day to streaming a games that have high chat interactivity and was wondering if y'all had any suggestions. I'm looking for games like Choice Chamber, where people in chat can effect what happens in the game. This seems like a rather new concept, but I was wondering if there were any other games like this out there. The Jackbox Party Pack is also a good one (assuming trolls are handled). So does anyone have any suggestions along those lines?
  21. Let's share our Twitch channels here so everyone can follow each other. Here's mine,
  22. Edit: It's out! https://mahn.bandcamp.com/releases Hey everyone! This is my 3rd year supporting Extra Life, and my main source of fundraising has been streaming and donations through Twitch. I teamed up with a back in April for a "Pretty Princess" stream with a friend of mine where we raised ~$1,400 for Extra Life! Shortly after though, due to personal reasons, I had to stop streaming on a regular basis. But I had a project on the backburner that I wanted to put whatever free time and energy I had into, and try to raise some money for EL before the end of the year. I've been playing music for 20 years, but never did an actual music project or album. I decided to change that, and I'll be releasing a six-track EP tomorrow (Wednesday, 12/5) called "World Warriors", a homage to the Street Fighter series. The concept is mixing and mashing metal songs, old and new, with video game music. The Chrono Trigger battle theme sounds like "The Trooper" from Iron Maiden? Let's do a song called Chrono Trooper! You get the idea I'll be doing a stream on Twitch on 12/5 at 6:30 PM ET as a "release party", and I'll play a few songs live. But once I release the album on Bandcamp, the "Pay More" option will be enabled. If you buy the album and pay more above the minimum price ($3 for a digital copy, $5 for a physical copy), I'll collect the additional money and donate it to Extra Life before the year end. I'll edit this post with the Bandcamp link once I release the album, but if you'd like to support on stream tomorrow, my Twitch channel is below! twitch.tv/mahn Promo video:
  23. I would like to participate in the guild stream on twitch. My game of choice would be xcom 2 or halo wars 2 preferably Wednesday nights.
  24. ExtraLifeTO is on Twitch! https://www.twitch.tv/extralifeto This channel has been created to allow streamers within our guild and community to showcase their passion for gaming as well as spread the word about Extra-Life, SickKids and our guild. We're looking for people who would be interested in participating by streaming their content on a scheduled basis. If you're interested in helping out with either streaming, moderating or help out in any other way, comment below! There's also been discussion about streaming during our 24-hour game day marathon. If you're also interested in that, speak up. We'll discuss details at a later guild meeting, closer to the event. Can also join our Discord channel for further discussion on streaming: https://discord.gg/TsyX3Wv (link never expires)
