Did you know that if you participated in our Extra Life 2013 livestream charity event, you may have been entered to win some fabulous prizes? Anyone who correctly answered a question in Jeopardy or who donated money received some number of raffle tickets which were used in a drawing for some digital download games and a few physical prizes that we’ll send out to you. The winners of those prizes are below, but first, the rules:

1) You have to be in North America to be eligible for game codes.
2) You must be in the lower 48 United States to be eligible for physical prizes.

Each prize has three winners: The primary winner gets the prize unless they don’t qualify, in which case it goes to the first backup winner, and if they aren’t eligible, the second backup. Please contact us via [email protected] with your name and what you won if your name is listed below at all, even if you’re the runner-up or third-back-up winner since we’ll need a way to contact you directly. This is how we’ll work out shipping details or code exchanging.

Hit the break for the winners.

If you don’t want to read anything, watch this video at the very least! It explains most of what you’re about to read.

Donate here! (or at least think about it…)
Catch the stream here (8AM central time, November 2nd)

Hey guys! We’re just three days away from this year’s Extra Life 2013 gaming marathon for charity, and we have one last (okay, maybe the second to last) update for you on what we’re doing, when we’re doing it, and why you should consider participating. If you have no idea what Extra Life 2013 is, please check out this post.



The final schedule for the event has been worked out, and you can view it after the break. It includes things like video game jeopardy (where we ask the questions and you guys answer them), Ask Seaman Anything (a Skype call-in segment), The Walking Dead LIVE! (yet another call-in segment), and much more. Please take a look at it after the break.

Oh, and we have PRIZES FOR YOU. That’s right: You can win prizes by donating or participating in the event in a very intuitive way thought up by Jack. Here’s how it’s going to work:

For every dollar you donate to the cause, you’ll get one pretend digital raffle ticket.

For every Jeopardy question you answer correctly, you’ll get one pretend digital raffle ticket

For every time you call in to the show, you’ll get one pretend digital raffle ticket

We’ll also be giving away raffle tickets to people that we consider outstanding participants. So if you do something cool or you make us laugh or whatever, we’ll give you extra raffle tickets!

When all is said and done, all of the raffle tickets will be bundled up and we’ll do drawings for fabulous prizes. Most (if not all) of the prizes are game download codes for Wii U, 3DS, PS3, Steam, etc etc. I can’t promise that we’ll give away anything crazy (no game systems or huge retail games or anything), but hopefully the ability to win some neato games will be enticing enough to get you to participate. More details to come on the day of.

Link looks so sad. This isn’t really related.

Evening discussion: The other side of motion gaming…

I was down at the Mall of America today to do some magazine shopping, and while me and some friends were wandering around, we came across the Microsoft store. Now, I’ve been in the Microsoft store multiple times, and each time it’s been host to great people and great fun; I haven’t even purchased anything from there yet! Today when we went back, they had the Kinect hooked up to the body-moving, fun-inducing Dance Central, and so naturally I began playing it.

About 45 minutes later, I was all danced out- as were my friends- and I was finally convinced: Kinect is pretty damn awesome, and I felt like I should ask what other people feel about Sony and Microsoft’s attempts at motion gaming. Of course, both of these never would have been possible without the Wii’s pioneering of the technology, but that doesn’t make the alternatives any less enjoyable! Are there any 360/PS3 owners out there that have been dying to talk about their experiences with the alternates to the Wii motion control?

Personally, I’ve played around with Move a lot and I’m still not convinced that it’s any better (in my experience it’s only been worse) than the Wii, but Kinect (especially Dance Central!) has got me hooked! Of course, I enjoy Ubisoft’s Just Dance to an equal level, so I won’t be purchasing a Kinect for just that one title any time soon. Even so, you can tickle me impressed!

How about you?

 

Evening discussion: Black Ops Wii online problems?

I’m hijacking the site for 2 seconds here because I just noticed something really quite silly. And because I know I can do it without getting in trouble. But mostly the first reason.

As I was updating our sister site, GamingEverything, I noticed yet another post about gamers complaining that their Call of Duty: Black Ops copies aren’t working online, despite numerous patches by Treyarch attempting to fix the issues. Every time I’ve posted these types of posts, I never really paid much mind because I personally have had no issues with the online in the game, but then I also realized: No one is really complaining about the Wii version. All the bugs are in the PS360 version of the game!

Sort of ironic considering how the Wii is generally considered an inherently worse piece of online tech… Anyone here experiencing major Wii Black Ops problems? Do you also find it sort of funny that the Wii version works fine? Discuss with me, my lovely readers.
