Congrats! I made mine last year, but sadly this year I am way short. That will just motivate me even more next year.
Keep up the good work CAGs. East Coast you guys are almost to the end!


Same here, though admittedly I set my goal 5x higher this year. I should get to at least 60% of my goal once a few lingering donations pour in.

And very well done on all of us crossing 1.1 million. It's insane that we damn near tripled last year.

Now that I've recuperated, time to finish up my last few hours. Anyone up for some L4D2? :)

Never really got around to posting in this thread, but it's because of frostybroc I got involved in this charity and joined this team. This was the first time I've ever participated in Extra Life and for even not really knowing anyone besides frosty, feel real proud about all the money the team raised (I raised 99% of my $250 goal :) ). Can't wait to do it again next year!

I managed to drum up $300 of my $500 goal. Not as much compared to last year, but still glad to be a part of Extra Life.

Tough day of gaming. Xbox Live issues with my friend who was going to play with me most of the day. Major case of exhaustion with 5-6 hours left.

Had a blast though!
For Shovelry!

I'm starting my time tomorrow at 1pm. If anyone can send me an invite to join Team CAG I would really appreciate it! When I tried to join it redirected me to the create account page for some reason...

Pretty much. Most people did their marathon Saturday, but a lot of people were not able to. People can make up the time whenever they can, although there is an official "make up day" this Saturday I think for those who want to do it then.

That last sentence makes this sound like a school project lol

Oh, really? You think there would be enough interest if i joined up and participated on the makeup day? I'd like to help some children out and I have some stuff I could give away as prizes.

I would definitely ask around. I know there are a few CAGs who wanted to do it but couldn't last Saturday. You might be able to drum up some interested people to do it. Maybe make a 2nd Chance thread and give prizes out to those who join you? Plus this thing has raised 1.8 MIL so far, but they are trying to reach 2 MIL. I'm sure they appreciate people still going at it :D

Hmm, I think I'll make a thread about this 2nd chance idea tomorrow and see what sort of responses I get. I'll try joining through the Team CAG link tomorrow as well.

Joined through the Team CAG link. I'm going to go take a look at the prizes I can offer to my donors and the other Team CAG members. :D

OK, here's the prize list and the rules for people who participate in the 2nd chance version.

Even though I didn't even hear about this until the 13th I still managed to get $200 in donations from friends and family in only 3 days. Needless to say I am pretty happy about it.
I might have been tired the next day, but it was worth it. I look forward to next year. :D

Thanks for your patience everyone who donated to me. I'll have details on how I'll award the prizes in the next couple days + a mega-update to the prize list. It nearly doubled since then.

The producer and art director of Final Fantasy XIII-2 were in town for press demos of the game, so they signed this for Extra Life.

He may also be waiting for the end of the month since a lot of people are still collecting and doing make-up.

(I still have a bunch of cash I collected to deposit and then put into it)

Yeah he is busy. He has a job, and loads of prizes to raffle off and get sent off. The man raised over $1,000, so this is no small task.

If he does it like last year, when he has everything figured out, he will post a list of names that are winners (which will probably be almost everybody). You then email him your address, and your package will come.

It sounded like he was doing something a little different this year with a turn by turn system first, then raffling off the rest of the stuff.

Yes, I am busy, but I'm sure I'm no more busy than the most of you. ;) As some of you know, I'm a freelance games writer for Machinima, GamePro, Complex, and G4 (among other sites).

I'm considering making November 19th the cut-off day for my donations. Also, folks like Capcom, Square-Enix and Aniplex have expressed interest in helping out, but haven't come around to sending product, so I'm giving them extra time.

Thanks for the update! I'm sooooo excited for this! Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss my chance.

Just want to apologize the winners from my drawing, I apologize for the delay as some issues have come and will delay me sending out the prizes. I didn't forget about you guys, and will try to get them sent this weekend.

Again I apologize.
