No sleep had! We gamed all to night benefit cancer fund

6:00 AM on 10.18.2009 // Colette Bennett

Update:  We're live!  ... but just for another half hour!

We have raised over $4,000 in the last 24 hours but that's still a tiny amount to what's realistically needed to cure cancer and EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS no matter how small.  Got a buck? Donate now!

What we're doing now:  BEATLES ROCK BAND!  We're taking requests - send them our way! Since 8am we've been gaming non-stop and we are almost done. (The chat room is right above our studio, we can seeeeeee you)

What you may have missed: Niero's spontaneous podcast! You had to be there, we covered everything from the meaning of life and bad choices in graphic design software.  We also played Geikisha Boy 2, fought Nazi zombies in Modern Warfare, played God Hand, Plants vs. Zombies, Niero failed to rescue (we tried again at 4am, it happened!) Michael Jackson in Space Channel 5 part 2 so the bad people in space took him away from us forever, just like in real life! We have this and more weird PS2 games coming as we go into the night. Colette made sammiches!  Niero beat Tetris level 9-5 on Tetris and launched a space shuttle. Rey turned blonde and Gabe lost his voice screaming: we just played a Japanese game called Super Mic Chan where you play mini-games by screaming.  Have you played Mr. Driller? Imagine Screamo Driller. Nuff said. Before that some weird guy trying to pay Colette a complement which turned into the funniest meme ever, you had to be there. Our Dreamcast melted after Leonard Nemoy's Seaman followed by Samba De Amigo, fired up 4-way I ma3d a gam3 with zomb13s in it!!!, got eaten alive at Ikaruga, Colette cosplayed as Mitsuru from Persona 3 and summoned various strange characters and am halfway through first quest of Zelda, Rey finished most of Uncharted 2, Niero beat Space Harrier II, Mega Man 2 and Noah's mission in Bible Adventures (seriously) by request, bizarro Chad Concelmo performed asombroso, we sang Sarah McDuckling accapella, we beat Legend of Kage, suck at Double Dragon II and Strider, completed a 2-hour session of face-melting Rock Band 2 song requests, beat the Citizen Kane of video games Altered Beast, beat E.T. on the 2600 while wearing a rubber horse head, played Fear 2 (aka Modern Warfare 42), and Mass Space Effect. 

We started Saturday 8am and our marathon will run through the night, ending at 8 AM Sunday. Want to donate something to sponsor our efforts? Head here to do so. It can be a totally minimal amount (or if you feel really inspired by our antics, a big fat amount), but no matter what, it all counts. You can comment in our live feed, too, so make sure to come in and chat us up. See you in the chat room!

Special thanks to all of our donors below!

I farted a lot during Mad Max Fury Road. I blamed them on the engines.

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Best purchase I've made in a long time. This little remote controlled BB-8 robot by Sphero is amazing. [IMG][/IMG]

I fart, therefore I am.

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I'm farting right now.

I farted in Gamestop today and wasn't blamed!

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

It is the middle of the night and Yu-Gi-OH is on TV. Are children with insomnia so common these days?

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.
