The End is Nigh!

Thank you for a great Extra Life 2015! I appreciate all of you that joined me in watching, sharing, and donating! Didn't get a chance to donate yet? That's fine! You still have until the end of November.
 I want to give some special recognition to my duo partner and son, Aidyn. He was a real trooper. You would think that playing video games all weekend is an awesome thing, but as he found out, there can definitely be too much of a good thing.
 My team, Gaiscioch, is going to be streaming for a few more hours. So, head on over to Gaiscioch.com/extralife and check out their stream. They are an entertaining group of gamers.
Again, thank you all! Have a good night!

The final hour!

Well, 23 hours down and 1 hour to go! Stop by and cheer us on as we finish Extra Life 2015 with some co-op Diablo 3! Let's go! Almost there!

Start of a new day...and another 12 hours!

After we figured out all the technical difficulties, things went pretty smoothly yesterday. We started today with some milk and mini donuts and the boys are already off and playing. Brett is playing Destiny on the Xbox One, and Aidyn is playing some weird game in the other room. I think that next year Aidyn may do the 24 hours over 2 weekends. He actually complained about having to play video games. So, please leave some encouraging comments below or stop by Twitch. Share with your friends, we are on the final stretch now! Help us reach our goal!

6 hours down! 18 more to go!

Nuklear61 (Aidyn) had a good morning of gaming, Brett did not. The PS4 decided to break, so we needed to bring down the Xbox One. Then the Xbone decided that he wasn't old enough to stream.  We needed to play with all the settings and eventually delete Aidyn's account just so that we could stream for you guys.  

Right now, things are back on track. Aidyn is playing some kind of dirt bike game and Brett has Destiny ready to go. He is new to the game, so if anyone wants to hop on and give him some pointers. His Gamertag is Radiologikal or check out the stream at Twitch.tv/radiologikal and say something in chat. 

Join him in a game, donate, share with your friends, We can all be heroes. 

Let the Games Begin!

Extra Life 2015 has commenced! Well, it actually commenced about an hour ago. This morning has been a bit busy. 23 hours to go. Brett has the stream up and running, so feel free to stop by at twitch.tv/radiologikal. If you want to play a bit, he is currently on the PS4 as Cerealkillah221,
 I'll be sure to keep you all updated, but right now I need to go chase some kids!

Guess who is coming to Extra Life!

I will have a sidekick this year! Aidyn (my mini-me) aka Nuklear61 will be joining me for some couch co-op! Nothing forges a father-son bond like playing games together to save kids. We'll be defeating evil with some Diablo III and creating chaos together on Rocket League.  We also might throw in some offline games. So look for some intense Pok√®mon card battles and a game or two of Max.  Additionally, Aidyn will  be soloing some of his favorite games, like Minecraft and Kinect Party on the Xbox 360.
  Extra Life is a great cause and a great reason to play together as a family. You don't need to play video games. You can go outside and play catch, grab some board games, even BINGO! Just play and donate to Extra Life. Share with your friends, co-workers, frenemies, etc. Be the Hero!

Extra Life with Gaiscioch

Hey all. I wanted to let you know of some of things my team is going to be doing for Extra Life 2015.  First off, I am on Team Gaiscioch. Gaiscioch is a social gaming community currently with active chapters in Guild Wars2 and Elder Scrolls online, We have tons of memebers that play other games, though. Gaiscioch is currently sitting at around 7000 members with an average age of 35. Needless to say, we are not your stereotypical gamers.
 Well, our fearless leader, Foghladha, decided to go all out this year with a crazy plan to play 12 games over 2 days for Extra Life. Here is a link to the games they will be playing.
  I wish I could join them, but with my freshly surgerized (that's a word, right?) hip I will not be able to sit at a computer. So, go check out Giascioch at Gaiscioch.com/extralife and remember to share with your friends and donate if you can. Be the Heroes.

What games should I play?

Since I probably wont be able to play on the computer due to my surgery, I'll be a console hero this year. I was thinking of playing some Diablo 3, Planetside2, and Warframe on the ps4. I'll definitely be playing some ESO and Smite on the Xbox. I guess that I have more options than I originally thought. Well, we are really getting close now! 2 Weeks! I may even have a few new gamers helping out this year, but you'll just have to wait to find out who! As always, please share my donation info! Tell EVERYONE!

Hip Surgery

Sorry, It's been a while. I will be having hip surgery on Oct 31st. I should be fine to do the marathon, but if not my lovely and talented wife (yes, she is right behind me) will carry forth on our mission to save kids. Unfortunately, no donations yet. I am not very good on the social media front, so please help me spread the word. Lets be heroes and save kids together. Like the Justice League or the Avengers...we can be...(Ill get back to you with an awesome name)

Fail

Sorry, I've totally been failing at this blog thing. It's been awhile since I actually posted on a blog so forgive me. Still getting geared up for Extra Life while we get geared up for League of Legends world. The wife made a C9 flag to hang out front, which turned out really awesome. If I have time I'll try to post a few pics of it. Show support to the kids and to our team.

Ugh. Back to School Germs

I feel so lazy not updating, but everyone in the house has been sick. As soon as one person gets better the next one gets sick, like the viruses have it all planned out or something. I plan to get back to work on everything tomorrow. So check back tomorrow. G'night all.

Yay for labor day!

I know you can't sense sarcasm online, but the post title is super sarcastic. Last night was a rough night, the wife and I are super sick and this morning when we woke up the dog had excreted nasty stuff on the floor. So at seven in the morning, I had to drag my sick sorry behind to the store for excrement cleaner. Great holiday so far! I do hope you enjoy yours though. You could always be the hero and make a donation early on this fine labor day.

This is my slacker weekend.

As for progress, I haven't done much to the site. Yesterday I put up some new pictures on Twitch, but that's it. This is a lazy weekend. You know what, I am going to blame my lack of progress on Netflix. I found a new show and can't stop watching it. You guys know what I mean, right? I expect I will be working hard again on Tuesday. Today and tomorrow seem like good days to test out the stream. So stop by twitch.tv/radiologikal and see if there is some action. You can also check out some of the links I have. No, "Hangout" is not working yet. Go ahead and explore. If you are looking for a gaming community, head over to Gaiscioch (the link is also up there) members play a plethora of games, but the main focus is Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online (PC). Guess that is it for now. Remember. Share. Donate. Be a Hero!

Redirection...

I spent the better part of yesterday trying to figure out how redirect brettofrextralife.com to Blogger. That whole expierence left me with one conclusion...I am NOT tech savvy. I worked on my streaming software and made a couple of scenes. Also did a short test and all seems well ; the output was pretty impressive compared to last year. This morning I connected my rss feed to Facebook and Twitter, now you can follow me on Twitter and join the #Brettforextralife revolution. So, things are definitely looking good. I still need to work on the "Hangout" page and update my twitch page but I feel good about the progress. Finally, I will reiterate, please share me with your friends or stop by and donate. I still need a very first donor! You could be the original Hero (insert epic music here).

Getting There

Well, this site is starting to shape up nicely. Most of the links (should) work. I am still working on the "Hangout" page. I want to have some links and referrals to the the games I will be playing and want to put up my raidcall channel so you can chat with me during Extra Life. Let me know what you think of the site so far or if you think I should add or change something.

Preperations

  Sorry things are a bit messy around here. I (actually the wife) managed to break the old site and now we have to rebuild it. So stop back frequently as I will be working on this daily. If you want to do something right now, head on over to my donor page at Extra Life  and have a look around.
