A Call to Arms for the Extra Life G3 Charity Event (Help Sick Kids)


Total Amount Raised: $100
You guys are amazing!!!!

Don't Have Xbox Live Gold to Game With Us?
No worries. Microsoft is giving everyone free access to online this weekend. There will be no excuse for not gaming with your fellow Dtoiders. If you don't feel like putting your name to this, just donate and play with us.

Don't have an Xbox at all?
Doesn't matter. Create a page and get people to donate. This isn't a Charity for Xbox. This is a charity for Kids. Turn this bad boy in to a PS3 or Wii Saturday Night Fights. I'll support it in a main post on Saturday.

Strapped for Cash?
Just spread the word. I'm asking you personally for a donation, but I'll gladly take some advertising to get people more involved. Tweet it or even Retweet it. Make this a thing.

Game with these Dtoiders
I'm going to update this list all week/weekend long for the games that the community will play and the personal lists they have created. If anybody wants to join this, post in the comments with the link of your own page. If you see a game you like from one of these people, join in and help them have a good time.

Not American and want to help?
This is not limited to American hospitals. Australian, European, and Canadian hospitals are all represented by this organization. Money is converted and donated in American Dollars, but money will still be going directly to these hospitals. So please sign up and help lend international support to this. This is all about children, no matter where they are on the planet.

When do we play?
We will be gaming all Saturday so please join us. If you plan on gaming at all on Saturday, October 1. Sign up and gather donations for a hospital. Donations are live right now and will run until the end of this weekend so I do encourage you to participate. I've contacted Mr Andy Dixon to see if FNF could partially sponsor this as well.

Already registered and want to join Team Destructoid?
That's great! If you signed up as an individual during registration but would like to join a team now, please email [email protected] Make sure to include your name, email address and the name of the team you would like to join (Destructoid Community).

Don't feel like supporting this?
Support the Humble Bundle right now. Leave your name as Destructoid Community instead of anonymous. All I ask is that you decide to support sick kids this weekend. That's it.

If you do feel like supporting this, just not us, then buy an avatar item. Search for G3 during the event Saturday and buy these shirts. It'll go to the kiddies.

My Greatest Failure

"We constantly have to revisit 'Why would Donkey Kong do this?' or 'Why would this environment be like this?' And then we start thinking: 'We're making a game about a gorilla wearing a tie.'"
-Michael Kelbaugh of Retro Studios on Donkey Kong Country Returns

"I have to say it's kinda scary how much you know about this game."
-Nicolau Chaud creator of Marvel Brothel
