1UP: Extra-Life (Join VVGtv and K.C. Entertainment Studios)

Hey all!

(UPDATE: I have increased the stakes, I have had solid challenges and will go forth with it.  I will limit myself to at least 15 Xbox Live Indie Games for my 24 hour Marathon for Charity.  Let’s have fun with this, For “ANY” game on the XBLIG Service “Your Choice” “ANY” Game [I will buy it, unless you have a code], for $25 I will play it for 1 hour, for $50 I will play that game for 2.5 hours) When you donate, please make sure you say “Master Blud then name the game”.

It’s that time again, and either you are new to this event or just joining us this year.  VVGtv is going to be helping out K.C. Entertainment Studios (Good Friends of VVGtv) in another year of an EXTRA LIFE Charity.   Last year, we raised $400, well over our $100 goal limit.  We are looking to top the goal this year again, possibly even more.
What I am asking you today, either if you are a developer, gamer, or someone who wishes to donate.  We are looking for game tokens to hand out to people who donate, on the hour every hour for 24 hours and possibly hold a jackpot at the end, or if you want to donate a little bit, follow this link.
Last year, K. C. Entertainment made a 1Up: The Extra-Life Documentary, which is now available on YouTube.  They recorded the whole 24 hours of gaming, with interviews from each member of the studio and great edit for us to watch.
K. C. Entertainment and myself will be streaming LIVE Games for 24 hours from 8 A.M. through until the next day on October 20th 2012.  K. C. Entertainment Studios will be streaming through their Ustream.  I will be streaming LIVE through at the same time and day.  We hope to see you there on both of the streams and chats.
If you are an Xbox indie developer and know that I have your game, and request your game to be played, make sure to make a note for the 24 hours stream to say “Master Blud – Play Name Game Here” when you donate any money at all.  For each donation over $25, I will play your game for 1 hour. (This rule has changed from the previous email as it would abuse power of donating a small amount)
I can’t wait to here back from all of you!  Game on!  Kyle from K. C. Entertainment Studios is available for any questions just daizoren [at] gmail [dot] com, you will need this email to send any redeemable tokens for the charity.

Extra-Life: “What was it like gaming for 24 hours straight?”

By: Daizoren

If you’ve been following vvgtv, K.C. Entertainment Studios or my facebook/twitter, you know that this past weekend my replay crew, some friends and I participated in the Extra-Life charity event that has gamers around the country getting donations for local miracle network hospitals (Our own Mercy Hospital in the North Western Ohio area) and gaming for 24 hours straight. While people are still able to donate, the charity has raise over a million dollars for local hospitals around the country and we (as of Monday, October 17th 2011) have contributed around $400 to this cause. But what I wanted to share today is a few things about the experience itself. Firstly, the documentary about the experience will be out as soon as I can get it done. I have about 30 hours of footage to seed through and edit together into one complete video, so it’ll take some time. In the meantime, I’ve asked my fellow gamers from the event to write out a paragraph of their experiences. You can read them below. (more…)

Extra Life Gaming Charity

By: Daizoren

If you’re an avid gamer, you probably know about the Extra Life Gaming Charity that goes on every year. It’s an event in which groups of individuals and groups play video games for 24 hours straight and get donations from friends, family, companies and more to donate to any Children’s Miracle Network Hospital across the United States. Each donation has to be a minimum of $12 and 100% of those donations goes straight to your hospital of choosing. This year, myself and my local Community Replay Crew are going to try to tackle this feat by registering and joining this wonderful cause in hopes to raise as much money as we can. We will be donating our money to the local Toledo Mercy Children’s Hospital.

“Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon. Tori’s battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the Sarcastic Gamer Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent in video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospital stays and three bouts with the deadly disease.” – Direct from Extra Life Site

Our group will consist of Adrian Ocana, Jordan White, Will Washington (Not formally from Replay, but has always wanted to be on) and myself. We shall also, most likely, have some other Replay veterans come in and out to cheer us on/play for a little bit for some added support. We’ll be gaming for 24 hours straight (some of us will be coming in late because we have to work, but I personally shall be doing the entire 24 hours) and we will be streaming the entire 24 hour event live. While we are streaming we will be giving away FREE GAME CODES periodically to those lucky people watching the stream, so tune in to win some great prizes!  (You guys can thank Masterblud for getting the codes for this, show your support for VVGTV!)

We will also be recording the event in order to make a small documentary about the experience that will be going up over on, my personal studio website.

The event starts Saturday, October 15th at 8 A.M. EST and will continue until October 16th at 8 A.M. EST. During this time we will be logged into Xbox Live playing Xbox games and on other systems playing through a multitude of games that myself and others have gathered together. If you’ve enjoyed the Community Replays in the past that we’ve done, this is your chance to watch us game for 24 hours straight, like one giant Super Replay of a bunch of games. You can go and donate to our Extra Life page here and we really appreciate every donation we get. We have a minimum goal of $100, but knowing the community I’ve been a part of here and elsewhere, I have a high confidence that we’ll raise well beyond that goal.

If you have not had a chance to check out our Community Replays, you can go over to my personal Youtube Page to watch them. We really hope you show your support and donate to this great cause to help hospitals around the country.
