You kept us awake, energized, and feeling the love all day long. Special mentions go to @NealMcNeal, @MaxBuffkin, @NPriorPrior, @Kimbykat, @AnGuardianDe, @bluerock1215, @KamakaziNES, Dave Kinetic, and Guthron for showing up and supporting us!

      A special shoutout must go to our fellow team members: @CenturionMAC, @Spider_Dan, @Kimbykat, @GamerMedic, @RoosterSammi, @NealMcNeal, and @cyberdork117! You guys really stepped up to the plate this year and hit it out of the park. We are so incredibly proud of you and really hope you'll join us next year!

      Some of the high points from our stream include Chubby Bunny, Assassin's Creed IV glitches, and the sounds of an Angel screaming in fear (thanks, Outlast). Didn't get a chance to watch? No worries! We'll have a highlights video out for you soon. Didn't get a chance to donate? Extra Life is accepting donations now through the end of the year! Check out our group page and donate to someone who didn't reach their goal!

    • Countdown to Extra Life: 3 Days!

      The Nerd Nest

      Just 3 days until the big Extra Life event! Are you excited? In case you need more reasons to donate, here are a few more incentives:

      Sarah (@LadyOddDuck) will cross-stitch something of your choice and send it to you with your donation of $20 or more to her Extra Life campaign! It must be something small (3†x 3â€), and must not contain anything NSFW, graphic, or violent. You must also be willing to share your mailing address with her (or else how will you get it?). Here’s a good idea of what she's talking about. Please note, she found this image online. It is not her work, but she could certainly create something similar:

      758eb2bd060c30d95aa0b1d616e7a8a7.jpg

      It could also be something related to your favorite sports team, a logo, an animal, something else from the realm of geekery… you name it!

      Kariann (@chicktastic) is offering you the chance to decide what color she dyes her hair. Be the first person to donate $200 or more to her campaign page and let her know what color you want her to dye it! It can be anything except a shade of green! She'll take pictures and maybe even record a video to confirm that she did it.

      Thanks so much in advance, everyone! Extra Life does great work. Please also tune in to our 24 hour livestream this weekend starting at 8 AM CDT on Saturday on Angel TV! We’ll be playing a bunch of different games and you’re welcome to join if you have them!
