I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, is 16 hours in and still playing! The team is getting something of a second wind after spending 30 minutes searching high and low for a missing cell phone (it was under the couch).
We also had our first casualty! It didn’t come as a surprise as this particular team member worked the night before (and is heading to work later today), but it still may be giving some of the other guys ideas. Sleepy, nappy, snoozy ideas!
I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, is 14 hours in and still playing! Things are wobbling between semi-comatose, nearly automatic play and short periods of frantic activity.
Fallout 3 has been abandoned. There’s not a whole lot of dedication in this group.
More The Binding of Isaac. It’s a game that you can play over and over (and over) and still not feel like you’re getting any better at.
I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, could still use donations! We’re half-way in and a while a few are starting to flag, most are still going at speed! We’ve been playing:
PlayStation 4 TowerFall, a favorite from last year, has had a big resurgence of popularity!
Most interesting, one of the more industrious participants has taken it upon himself to construct a virtual reality headset from the old pizza boxes. Crazy thing is, it actually works. Kinda. Here are some pictures!
Didn’t the workshop would see any use during a game marathon.
Success! Sort of!
It was a promising start, but ended with a child squirming weirdly in the corner.
I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! Our team, The Vidiots, could still use donations! We’ve got some part-timers in now, and one of our starters had to leave, but we’re still going string. We can always use more sick kids; they’re so inspiring! We’ve been playing:
We seem to have abandoned the Fallout 3 shopping cart collection, but are now streaming whatever the hell is going on to Twitch as EatThatWontonSoup!
The part-timers (a bunch of 13 year girls, so: LOUD!) have taken over the main TV and are having way too much fun with Hamster Ball, an oldie-but-goodie PS3 racing/maze/obstacle course… thing.
They then migrated to the table to play Apples-to-Apples and the (we’re told, smelly) boys pulled out the funky “Buzz” controllers and had some unexpected fun with Buzz!: Quiz TV.
Buzz needs Buzz controllers… Buzz controllers need lots of batteries.
Apples-to-Apples (because Cards Against Humanity didn’t see appropriate).
I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! We’re eight hours in and going strong! Our team, The Vidiots, could still use donations! We can always use more sick kids; they’re so inspiring! It’s dinner time, so we decided on a stack of pizza and rousing game of Munchkin using way too many expansions!
I’m not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon! After subjecting ourselves to the horror that is “Pixels”, we’re back to playing! Our team, The Vidiots, could still use donations, if you like. We can always use more sick kids; they’re so inspiring! Since the movie ended, we’ve played:
Our man playing Fallout 3 has decided that it’s his mission to move all of the shopping carts in the wasteland to the Super Duper Mart. Well, “mission”, may be a strong word; let’s say “hobby”, instead.
At some point it was also decided that every time anybody started to sing “Mad World“, everybody had to join in or face undetermined consequences:
As part of our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon our team, The Vidiots, raised hundreds of dollars for sick kids and, as a unwarranted slap in the face, we made them watch this. They were protected, somewhat, by the portable games they were playing, but several still suffered terribly.
The was also some weirdness. Several people were introduced to the bizarre The Static Speaks my Name and somebody brought a Sega Genesis and subjected a small, but dedicated contingent to the marvels of Shaq-Fu.
We’re heading towards lunch soon. Here’s some eye candy for you:
Shaq-Fu was… and experience.
Pretty sneaky, sis!
We’re putting quite the load on the circuit breaker!
We’ll have more professional photos later. For now it’s cell-phone amatuer hour.
I’ll be not-live blogging our Extra-Life 2015 Marathon at, with any luck, about an hour delay. Amazingly, nearly everybody that planned to show up, has. More amazingly for a group of teenagers, they were all on time. There are still a couple of holdouts, but we’ve got more than enough to make this count!
Our team, The Vidiots, have raised $383 for sick kids so far. You can still donate, if you like – we can always use more sick kids; they’re so inspiring!
Here are a few shots of our lovely home before the invasion.
