Extra Life 2015: 10am and We’re Done!

A Depressed Press SeriesPart 15 of 15 of Extra Life 2015

Extra-Life LogoI’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, is done! 24 hours of gaming, goofing and doing good by sick kids!

We lost about half the team before the end, but enough of us made it we’re counting this a solid, if groggy, victory! As we approached the end, some of the punch drunk – but still conscious! – team members decided to celebrate with song.

Thanks to my lovely bride who went above and beyond to help us pull this off and all of my team members. We didn’t meet our fundraising goal, but still raised $393 to help the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!

Extra Life 2015: 8am and We’re Dropping like Flies!

Extra-Life LogoI’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, is 22 hours in and still playing! Well some of us are playing. We’ve lost more than a few. The survivors are still plugging along, but for how much longer is anybody’s guess.

We’re playing:

  • Somebody decided that Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was necessary. That was retired for Super Mario Sunshine after a few minutes.
  • The current champion got further in Undertale than ever before… and then died horribly.
  • We ended up on the PS3 for a while and sampled some of the smaller, quieter games like Rain and the amazing The Unfinished Swan. We also dusted off PixelJunk Monsters, a classic tower defense game.
  • Despite being nearly comatose, we ended having a great pass-the-controller session with the amazingly high-speed twitch game Race the Sun on PS4. This is exactly the kind of game that you don’t want to play with compromised reflexes, but we had a blast.

Here are some pictures!

We’re almost to the finish line!

We’re playing:

More to come!

Extra-Life LogoI’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, is 18 hours in and still playing! We cooked up some hot food to give everybody a little boost and a break from the salt and sugar.

We’re playing:

  • Two team members have dedicated themselves to a The Binding of Isaac mini-marathon.
  • The rest spent a few minutes reliving their childhoods by playing “Spongebob Squarepants” on the GameCube, then, surprisingly, abandoned it for an extended (and very loud) session of Scattergories.
  • The streaming of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on the EatThatWontonSoup Twitch channel is on hold (the players have wandered over to the Scattergories game), but may start up again.

Here are some pictures!

More to come!
