The lights are on
We're going to be livestreaming our 25-hour Extra Life gaming marathon on November 2 at 9:00 central, where we'll be giving away prizes and raising donations until our eyes bleed. A local news station took notice and came by our office to talk about this year's marathon and have a look around.
Click the image below to watch the video on KSTP Channel 5's Eyewitness News website. When you're done, swing by Team Game Informer's Extra Life 2013 page to join the team or donate.
If you haven't checked out any of our livestreams or marathons before, things tend to get a little goofy. We'd love for you all to come watch, donate, play along, and enjoy the 25 game-filled hours with us.

Congratz guys! We love you Gameinformer!
Man, thats awesome! GameInformer got on tv for a good cause! Thats nice!
I'm very happy this was able to happen. So much work has gone into Team Game Informer!
Its always nice to see video games reported in a positive light; sadly uncommon. Thanks for your efforts GI staff.
This is awesome. Good for you GI crew. I really hope I get to watch the live stream.
Dammit Ben you missed the perfect opportunity to pitch one of your brilliant Ben-ventions. Joking of course, just glad to see that you can do normal. I hope you guys raise more than 15 grand, what is the best you've done in a year. I'm glad such a big company like GS and a great publication like GI (maybe more initialisms will make this post better) is a big supporter of such a great cause.
Well done guys!!! and good luck on Extra Life!! :D
Great job GI staff, hopefully I can tune in a little on Nov. 2 to help out.
Dat game vault.

Tim Turi divulging his "no-pants gaming" strategy. Looking forward to seeing this marathon unfold, guys!
Hey Tim, FYI, my pants are off during the weekend. Way to not be PC about it...
Wait did Tim say playing 25 hours of games in a weekend is a normal weekend activity?
