I just put down my donation. Almost forgot it was today...:oops:


I'm not participating as a 24 hour gamer, but I will be on randomly throughout the day.
If any CAGs want to play something, I will gladly join them.

ODST Firefight of Brutal Legend would be nice.

I just finished my first game: Parasite Eve for the PSX. Took me over 14 hours, but I finished it!

This was the first squaresoft game I've ever finished in 1 sitting from opening cinematic to end credits.

First time I've played it and I would highly recommend it to someone wanting to go 'old school'.

Now starting Ghostbusters (PS3) for the first time....once installation finished -_-

Keep up the good work everyone!

I just finished! I am very very tired and will now sleep.

What I did:

8am -> 10pm (Full game of Parasite Eve)
10pm -> 4am ish (Ghostbusters PS3)
3am-> 6am ish (Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds)
6am -> 8am (Online Zynga Poker...yeah, maybe not the most 'cagish' thing out there...)

now time to sleep.

Congrats to everyone else who also did this, it was a long haul for me here doing it solo hope you all held up ok. It is worth it for the kids :)

Time to go to sleep.
I started out with comic zone on the ps2 sega genesis collection. I beat it after about 3 hours.
Then I played house of the dead 3 on the wii for a couple hours until I beat it. I played with my son on and off on multiplayer. But when I beat it it was just me playing while he made popcorn chicken for lunch.

Then I played NIGHTS(wii) for an hour and still have gotten pass the first level. I really hate the controls on this game.

Then I played Raving Rabbids tv for about 2 1/2 hours until beaten.

I then played super monkey ball on the ps2 for the majority of the time until I finally beat the last 3 worlds of story mode.

Then I after the family went to bed I played house of the dead overkill. I had not played this one before and had a blast. To bad my wife would have a cow if my 15 year old played this with me. It would be a blast (I know bad dad:) )
I played for several hours until I started just blanking out and losing all my reaction time.

So I played some wii fit games just to keep moving and stay awake to the finish.

I had kingdom hearts in the ds for breaks to begin with but switched to peggle a few hours in because it was easier to drop in and out on that one.

I realize after taking the time to type this that no one else probably cares and i am so tired it may not make any sense, but sorry I typed it out. I'll edit it for brevity and clarity latter.

I would just like to congratulate everybody on this team. With only like...5 days to raise money, this website raised more than a lot of others. Who knew the CAG community was so giving?

And congratulations to everyone everywhere who was involved. Who would of thought our murder-inducing-useless-hobby would raise so much money for a good cause? And yet some people still refuse to give video games any serious credit.

Cheers, everybody.

My brain was just this lump of goo. I was playing Warhammer Online, and I didn't even know what my char was supposed to be doing, i ended up just running around and killing things for a while. :lol::lol:

Just woke up from the, 24 hour gaming marathon induced, coma.

It went well, took the shrink wrap off Uncharted 2 at 7:45am and the credits started rolling at 6:00pm. Then returned to Rapture to take out Sasha Cohen in Bioshock, and the credits started rolling at 11:00pm, which was followed up by Brutal Legend. After that a couple friends came over with Guitar Hero 5, Rock Band 2, and Wii Sports Resorts, which ended at 2:30am. This was followed up by Buzz TV until the PS3 frozen, so I went to Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars on the DS. It all ended at 8:03am, where I stumbled upstairs to bed.


Good job CAG for raising $4804.00

I signed up and sent the link to everyone on my twitter and facebook and they failed epically at supporting the cause...I sponsored myself and played some games...I'm sure I'll make up the 24hrs before the end of the week.

How did you guys get people to sponsor you? I know they are accepting donations until the 31st and I'd like to help more.

Family members are gold. Also, if you are in good standings with your boss, they typically will help out a bit.

I got a bunch of people at work to do it, I know 24 buck is a lot for most people, but if you can get 10 bucks from 2 people, you are almost there!

That was alot of fun, i think next year cheapy should do a ustream video ( maybe so could wombat and the ships ) I think we could easily hit 10 k, if we had all those videos,

I did a run through of ODST on legendary which took me 12 hours, i played alot of halo3 and even played carracorrose ( spelling?) with MotzCTG .

Sadly I missed Wombats DM on twitter otherwise I would have done a playthrough of ultimate alliance with them.

I am a little disappointed with Mr Shipwreck, I was expecting more people to sponsor you.

I'll be ready next year and start making people aware before the weekend of. I think people were too preoccupied with their weekend plans of OU vs Texas and U2 at the OU Stadium. That or their hatred of Texas includes cancer kids? Surely not!

I did get another donation besides my own today! So, maybe more will trickle in. Good job team CAG on exceeding your goal! Glad to be even a small part of it.

Fun times. I got a lot of sleep yesterday, and yes I did make pancakes at around 9AM yesterday. lol

Yeah morph3us played some carcassonne with us. That game is so amazing. however there is no way to have guest play online so we basically passed the controller around. Sorry we didn't play anymore after that we were going for some achievements in odst.

I wish I could have participated in this. I found out about it too late and I signed up Friday night, but was unable to find any sponsors. Hopefully I'll be able to make it next year.
