The Temporary Hiatus

I should have wrote this a while ago; but well, I’ve been busy, stressed and about a dozen other things. Life has been hectic, financially, emotionally, and just about everything else. All of this has culminated in a state of burn out that has prevented me from focusing on reviews, game design, streaming and just about every fun activity I can think of. Since I am currently the sole writer/reviewer for this site it is obvious how it has suffered. So, I have been taking a long drawn out break from all the excess things, to center myself.

I will be reviewing again, just not yet. I will hopefully also start streaming and get back to working on my game, once a few of the wonderful life things are worked out.

So peace, and enjoy my previous reviews and I’ll see you around on twitter and such until I am back in reviewing action.

Extra Life 2012 Is Closing In

On Oct 20th 2012, The Extra Life gaming marathon to raise money for local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals will begin. So the fund raising has begun. I am participating again this year, in the previous years I’ve managed to raise around 400.00 dollars. Let’s see if we can beat that goal. So I set my heights just a little higher at 500.00, I know we can do it. Donations through my Extra Life page will go to Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Remember this is for a good cause. If you can’t donate maybe you can participate and help raise money.

Like last year I will tweet my progress through the event, so you can know what games I’m playing and in some cases help me decide what to play next. If you have suggestions ahead of time for games to play, let me know in the comments below. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts. So lets help some kids in hospitals and make this a great experience like it has been in previous years.  I want to thank everyone in advance for your donations or participation in the event.

Extra Life 2011 Update

Now that September has started, that only leaves a month and a half till Oct 15th 2011. The 24hr gaming marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals needs your help and contributions. The amount I’ve raised so far has been pretty low, so each and everyone of you really do matter. Don’t wait till the last minute to donate if you are interested, that is usually when I tend to forget.

If you’re wondering what I’m talking about their is more info on my previous article located here. If you are wanting to help with a donation just click here and click on the support button to make your contribution. In my eyes no contribution is too small or too large. Give what you can for the hospitals. Remember donations through me go to the Children’s Memorial Hospital, but others are working to raise money for other hospitals, and you should be able to search for them as well.

Remember this is a good cause and let’s show them what gamers can accomplish when they put their minds to it. Don’t be put off by the lack of donations help be the motivator for others. And remember I am open to suggestions on the Indie games I will play for those 24hrs. I want your opinions on this one.
