Extra-Life: In It To Win It Like Boyz 2 Men


Just wanted to let everyone know that I joined the Destructoid team for Extra-Life this coming weekend (October 15th) and will be live streaming my gaming / nervous breakdown. The live stream will be there.

I just decided to do this out of the blue today, I felt like I haven't been very helpful to anyone but my self recently and want to give back. Since I won't be able to see my daughter this weekend, I figured the least I could do is donate my time to a charity (Nationwide Children's Hospitals) that could effect her life. The least I could do.

Games wise I'll be playing catchup on some games I've never finished or played such as:

Gears of War 3 (Deathmatch anyone?)
Dead Island
StarFox Assault (I don't know if I've even played this and I've owned it forever)
StarFox Adventures
Hulk Hogan Main Event
Child of Eden
Powerup Heroes
Various Japanese Bullethell Shooters for Xbox 360 (read: Very Japanese)
Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 (pre-release version...horrible mine cart level...hurray)
Parapa The Rapper 1 / 2
Cocoron (English Translation)
Dream Penguin Adventure (English Translation)
Hello Kitty World (English Translation...was released as Balloon Kid on GB if I do recall)

So a nice mixture of new, japanese, rare and cool stuff you won't see anywhere else. I'll see what other rare / hard to find / beta / alpha versions I can pull out of my giant collection. I may even hit up some old school NES games / Betas / Unreleased games on an emulator on 360 for you guys to check out.

Let me know what you think and any feedback / suggestions. I have all 3 current gen consoles and a comptuer that can emulate anything that has an emulator. Perhaps I can break those Bubble Bobble records I've been working so hard to achieve...

If you wish to donate and find out a bit more about the chairty, then clicky here!!!!

Click here to watch the live stream and some preview footage that has been recorded setting up my equipment!

Also, feel free to spread my link if you wish, like rabbits with STDs in a wild fire fueled jacuzzi.
