So I'm going to have a 2 week giveaway for 1 copy of Payday 2 Career Criminal Edition (Steam/PC version & the Career Criminal edition is not currently available as it was only a Pre-order option).  I will be posting a thread in the giveaway/contest section later today or possibly tomorrow with more details.  I'm probably going to try what Frosty did and have the highest donor win the prize as it seems to attract a slightly better turnout than raffles.  If two or more people donate the same amount, I'll use random.org to decide between them.

Looking at Facebook this morning, it appears Extra Life has raised over $350K so far compared to $50K this time last year.

Can't wait to the totals this year!!!

Payday 2 Contest Link

 

I added some additional prizes to reward all the donors even if they don't donate the most during this contest.

 

UPDATED:

Here's a partially completed list of the other potential prizes for donors. I will be updating with some more prizes soon.

 

Link to spreadsheet of the other possible prizes:

https://docs.google....Z3c&usp=sharing

 

 

Rules/How to Win:

 

The person who donates the highest amount to my Extra Life campaign during the next week or so will recieve the game. After you donate, come back to this thread and post. Let me know what sort of prizes, games, etc. would make you interested in donating to help charity! If two or more people have donated the same overall amount, I will use random.org to determine the winner and this essentially becomes a raffle.  All donors who are not the highest donor will receive a prize from my Steam inventory or 1-2 spare Steam keys. I will update this post later tonight with some of the other potential prizes available.

No donors yet for the current Payday contest. I'm hoping people will donate soon as it's only a few days from the end date. 

 

Also, I received around 12 signed copies of Red Orchestra 2 Heroes of Stalingrad from Tripwire Interactive.  I'm thinking of doing a raffle for half of the copies and the other half will go to the top donors.  What do you all think?  I will take pictures once I get home tonight.

I've had to reschedule my play date for Extra Life to a week earlier (Oct. 26/27) due to work.

I'm still trying to drum up some donations, but it's been slow going. I did a share contest on Facebook ($1 for every share) and raised almost $40!

Anyone doing work with CMN Hospitals for Extra Life? I got an email about a St. Louis meetup, but I have work.

I also got my shirt in the mail from Extra Life:

^^ Cool shirt, glad they got them out early this year.  I didn't receive mine until after the event last year.  Finally registered!  Been a busy summer, we purchased our first house and just moved in about 2 weeks ago, and July and August were crazy busy months for us.  Including a stolen car, vacation and packing my entire comic book, literature and video game collection...  Out of all 3, the last was actually the most stressful and time consuming!

 

Anyway, finally gotten a bit settled in the new digs and I'm gonna send some pics of the "man cave" on the show us your collection thread if anyone else lurks through that thread (I did for a while to get some ideas, and would love to do some of the custom work I've seen, but our half finished basement is like pressboard walls with aluminum studs so hanging anything heavier than a poster is a pain).

 

So I set a stretch goal of $1750 this year.  Honestly I never even anticipated getting to my goal of $500.  Especially since I only raised funds for a month.  My only tip is follow through.  Don't be an ass, but keep in contact with folks, friends and family made up 70% of my donations.  Plus it helps that my wife works at our CMN Hospital.  I may actually tour it this year, which I wanted to last year, but Extra Life coincides with their yearly gala which gets a lot more than my $1500...

 

Best of luck to everyone.  Not sure what I'm going to play this year.  I have so many options since I finally got back into PC gaming.  But I'll probably hit up an RPG or maybe finally logging some hours in GW2 or Secret World.  Plus... GTAV... but, that's jumping to the front of the backlog next week.

Well, I'm a little busy this week, but this weekend I'll start a thread for the signed Red Orchestra 2 copies.  It will probably last till the end of the month and I think the combo of top donors and a raffle will be appealing. :)  It's good to see more people joining and raising funds.

 

I think I never received my shirt last year since I raised my $200 closer to the end of the year. Ah well, this year's looks pretty cool. :D

The RO2 contest thread is up. Here: http://www.cheapassg...estra-2-copies/

 

Let me know if anyone has any questions about the rules/prizes, etc.

 

Oh, forgot to mention this last time.  If any of the Team CAG members or anyone who's donated to a Team CAG's Extra Life wants a Playstation Plus 1 month trial code, I have 5 available. You need to have or put a credit card on your account to redeem, but you can remove it and cancel the automatic payment option right after redeeming.

 

I summarized the conditions they imposed above, but this describes them in more detail.

 

LEGAL


A credit card is required to redeem your PlayStation®Plus 30-day trial, but you will receive this trial without charge. Unless you cancel your subscription at least one day prior to the end of the 30-day trial, your trial will automatically convert to a 3 Month PlayStation Plus subscription, and $17.99 will automatically be deducted from your Network wallet according to the Terms of Service and User Agreement. This 3 Month subscription will continue and automatically renew until you cancel it. You may cancel your subscription via the account management on your Sony Entertainment Network ("SEN") account or by contacting customer support at 877-971-7669. PlayStation®Plus is only available to legal U.S. and Canadian residents with a SEN account who are 18 years or older. Code expires 9/13/2013. The approximate value of the Code is $0.00 USD. Code is not redeemable for cash, cannot be returned for cash or credit, may not be used for any other purpose and will not be replaced if lost, stolen, or damaged.

Just wanted to share some good news. Received my first donation for the RO2 contest from the [50pc.] clan on the Tripwire Interactive forums.  They put me well over my goal, so here's hoping we manage to break our team goal early this year!

Had a good weekend and challenged myself to make some difficult games in a short amount of time.  It's called a Game Jam and I made a puzzle simulation sort of game about doctors trying to diagnose their patients with the given information from observations and their patient as well as the scans and tests they can perform.

 

RE: Red Orchestra 2 copies. Still have around 8-9 days for donations. 11 more copies are unclaimed at this point!

So I just sent out the round of PM's for CAGs who won a signed RO2 copy.  I am missing one contact email/username for http://www.extra-lif...icipantID=47869

 

If Nick Varrasse could contact me via a PM, I can get a signed copy sent to his Donor Diane Parker or someone else of her choosing.  If she would like to pick something else out of my digital prize bag, that is also fine. Please just send me a PM with that information.

 

Also, one of my Steam friends was asking me if any member of Team CAG are planning on streaming their marathons? If you are, let us know ahead of time and we can maybe organize some multiplayer or co-op and keep your stream lively. :)

Sony is doing an Extra-Life promotion where they are giving away some games and PS Plus memberships for people who sign up for Extra-Life and raise money.  Im not sure why they waited till a month before the date to start this but its pretty cool that they are doing this.

All you have to do is register and select Playstation under the "Join a Movement option" or if you are already registered for Extra-Life just use this link http://www.extra-lif...ms.page&id=1056

Ah crap. I read about the Extra Life charity from the PS Blog today and wanted to be proactive and created a Team CAG for everyone over at the PS3 Gamesharing thread. Little did I think to do a search first to see if one already existed. Can we merge? People have already started donating.

 

This is ours in case you guys were interested.

I will email their support staff in a little bit. You are the leader for that new team? I think you will need to contact their support as well so they can confirm the merge is desired on two ends. PLEASE EMAIL SUPPORT@EXTRA-LIFE.ORG

EDIT: So Usuyami said that he wants to move everyone in his new Team to the old Team, but I can probably ask support to change the Team name if everyone prefers a different one. So basically, just suggest a name you think works well; keep it simple/short and the one with the most popularity/votes will be the new name. 

 

So, question to everyone. If you had to choose one of these names for our Extra Life Team, which do you prefer? Team CAG or [CAG] Team Cheap Ass Gamer? 

Team CAG page: http://www.extra-lif...am&teamID=12534

[CAG] Team Cheap Ass Gamer page: http://www.extra-lif...am&teamID=10495

 

 

Support contacted me back regarding the duplicate Team issue brought up by Usuyami; they suggested moving each individual team member to one of the potential teams. Based on the popularity of either name, I will reply back to support with what team to use this year.

I like [CAG] Team Cheap Ass Gamer since its states the site name for who we're playing for. When I contact the companies, that is what they're expecting to see to validate my claims.

 

On another note, Nippon Ichi Software just stated that they're down for the cause. No word yet from Nintendo, Razer and ATLus.

Yeah, I just got my codes.  I own quite a few of them or am not interested in that specific game, so I'm thinking I should just ask the people who've donated to my specific page if they would want some of the games/codes. If none of the previous donors are interested, I might hold a mini contest for them.

Where did you get the codes for reaching? Also guys I'm making some changes to the raffle. Since Ive been working Extra Life, we have some people that put in some work and get nothing, while some people reap greats stuff. So to alleviate this, I'm incorporating a minimum raised amount. Two reasons why I feel this is a good thing:

 

1. More money raised for the kids.

2. Hard work pays off.

 

I'll throw a change up on the first page. The minimum will be $40 to be able to qualify for any of the raffles. I feel that this a feasible goal.
