That's a mouthful.

...

ZING!

Anyway. On the 16th of this month, I'll be playing video games. Of course, on the 16th of most months I'm playing video games, but this month is different because I'll be doing it for 24 hours straight, amongst others, to raise money for the UC Davis Children's Hospital. Although I would prefer to raise money for myself, because I'm broke as hell, this is the next best thing. I'll be over in San Francisco, gaming from about 8am (depending on what time I get there) to around 8am the next day. That's how Destructoid rolls.

This is the schedule, subject to change.
(Look at 1:00am and 6:00am. You know you love it)
Here's the live stream, which is starting at around 8am on Saturday
(Watch me fail at video games that aren't happening at 1:00am!)
CAPCOM SWAG! (Prizes to win)

So, if you're bored and feel like donating during the event, you can go to the donation page and pitch in.

If you can't pitch in, no worries at all. You can just root for my peanut butter. And, if you can pitch in or can't, letting your friends and family know would be totally awesome also. Which is, obviously, not mandatory. But any support helps.

If you can't do any of this, then you can at least throw children at people.

Well, according to the web page it seems they charge entry fees to a lot of the tournaments and other events and participants can also donate.

Well, essentially, everyone can donate money to the event through the donation page, at whatever point in the day. You can also win prizes, but you have to donate to enter the drawing. That's pretty much it.

Aww. Well, you can just root everyone on then. XD

Also, if anyone wanted to know, I'm Manic Maverick on Destructoid. So if you ever hear that name during the event you'll know it's me!

EDIT: Also also, I added the live stream link to the OP.

Alright, the marathon is over! We ended up raising about $6,000, all of which is going directly to the UC Davis Children's Hospital. Thanks to anyone who watched the stream, if anyone did. T-shirts came off, men walked around in dresses, eyebrows were removed, and FK was in the coffee. It was a generally epic 24 hours, despite my complete disconnection from reality near the end.

I played Sonic Colours, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Ikaruga, and Deadly Premonition. I was supposed to play Silent Hill 2, but I didn't get around to it. I was also supposed to play Dead Rising 2 and Dead Space, but I put them off thinking I was gonna play Silent Hill 2. Meh.

Cheesy Yeah, pretty much. All of the pain and ridiculously sleepiness I felt was completely worth it. Felt great doing something for a good cause.

For anyone who missed it, you can find all of the footage here. I looked both grumpy and really happy throughout the entire thing. Which is because I'm always grumpy.
