The lights are on
A group to bring together Team GIO 2012 in their efforts to donate to charity.
There's camaraderie amongst the Team GIO members (or so I witnessed last year), so I believe it's only fitting to allow a place where you can tell other people a bit about yourself. I'll start us off.
I'm Stranger, formerly known as The Stranger In Us All. I had a blast helping out and meeting new people last year when Mojo created Team GIO 2011. I've accomplished a lot in the short time I've been on the site, but yet Extra Life is always one of the ones I'll look most fondly on. From people like Mojo to the Pieloving Gamer, it was a unique experience, and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish in the effort to help sick children and bond this year.
Other than Team GIO, I'm pretty much an everyday nerdy laid-back kind of guy. I like Ghibli films, Tool, FiM and Gurren Lagann, and books like LOTR and Wheel Of Time. I am also a writer and blogger. I look forward to carrying on discussions with everyone in this group. :)
Awesome job Stranger!
I am Mojomonkey12, and while many people associate TEAM GIO and Extra Life with "me" the truth is that I was simply the messenger last year and am a cheerleader this year! TEAM GIO is all of us equally and Extra Life is the heart and soul of Jeromy Adams and only exists because of the courage of one young woman who spent the last days of her life trying to ensure other kids and parents may not have to suffer as her family did. Extra Life is Tori Emmon's Legacy or at the least the beginning of it.
Obviously I enjoy gaming and most geek accepted popular culture. Some current interests include The Walking Dead issue 100 upcoming, finishing up my NG++ playthrough for Dark Souls platinum trophy. I've recently started learning about and purchasing firearms. They are awesome and I will need some amazing weapons when the Zombies rise(again).
GIO is an amazing place and I look forward to doing my part to raise a megaton of Money for Extra Life with all of you. Please don't think you cannot participate for any reason, everybody is welcomed and everybody can make a difference. Feel free to ask any questions!

Hi, I'm Koob. I'm a legend here on GIO. I play video games and do cool stuff that you will never see until I start making money from doing it. I also come out of my shell occasionally to do stuff like this.
SON OF A KOOB!
Thanks to Stranger for sending me the group link.
I am Jolt, or Eric on the Team GIO page. Its a cause that I have first-hand experience with, so joining the team was a no-brainer for me.
I am married, have 2 daughters, and love games. Currently I am playing Rage and loving it. Uhm... I guess anything else, don't be afraid to ask. I am an open book.

Good on you Stranger for doing this, and to all of you for donating.
I'm Le Hannibal or Jordan (HA JOLTS NAME IS ERIC) on the GIO page. I'm in college studying for my English/Journalism degree and work at an Autoparts store. Also I enjoy video games, movies, Batman stuff, and guns. I'm playing Minecraft and Enslaved Odyssey to the West at the moment. And that's all I have to say about that. :D
Ha! Well its better than having a last name for a first name you jerk.
I almost bought Enslaved Odyssey when I got Rage. Is it any good?
If you're looking for an incredible story, with awesome characters and voice acting then it's the game for you. The combat is smooth but lacks any real depth, and it's not the most challenging game ever, but I recommend you buy it.
Sounds like Rage is better. I'll wait a bit...
I am Noobtubin8er, obviously. I have been around the site for a little over a year but didn't sign and and actually do things until just a little less than a year ago. I blog and get herded, but wouldn't consider myself to be a popular member by any stretch of the imagination. Lately, i have been so busy I have not had a chance to write anything due to my job and a masters course I am taking.
This year, for Team GIO I am helping out with PR related items and working to get incentive based prizes for those who sign up, get people to sign up, and we will have drawings for those who work hard and raise money this year. In fact, we'll have an awesome prize for PC gamers coming up within the next week or two, so find your PC gamers and get ready. We also have some other really exciting announcements of prizes from one of the most well known publishers in the business, so watch for that.
I'm a pretty simple guy. I have a steady career, a great wife, two sons, and plenty of video games. I write for the enjoyment of it and gaming is a great source of inspiration and information.
Im SuperKingC77 (SK for short), Ive been around the site for approximately 7 years, though most of those were under my real name Collin Voorhies, and I was not very active for the majority of them either. Been playing on Nintendo systems since I was maybe 7 years old, and basically play everything whenever I can get the time. Im currently an engineering major at the University of Houston and the closest thing i currently have to an occupation is a freelance digital artist with a print contract with the Houston Brony Group. Currently playing a whole slew of games, including Minecraft, Civ V Gods and Kings, Skyrim, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Order of Ecclesia, with a whole slew of titles waiting in the wings, but by time the marathon rolls around I think all my focus will probably be on Borderlands 2. I look forward to participating with you all :)
I'm in here now!
Glad to have you with us this year!
Hi! My name is Jack and I like video games.
Okay, I suppose some more info on me should be forthcoming. You might be familiar with me from my blogs on GIO or from my participation on the Indie and Mojo Show. I currently intern at Game Informer and I try to be a good guy. I have a habit of staying up way too late, watching eSports, and have a fondness for baking/cooking. Ummm... I don't participate in forums much.... sooooo I suppose that's it!

My name is PK. I have been on the site for a couple of years now, however I mostly just post in forums so there is a good chance you havent heard of me (adjusts hipster glasses). Anyway i like videogames (Kirby Superstar is one of my favs), I love Pink Floyd, and i am a photographer (sadly not profesional though). Anyway for the marathon I will probably just be playing Borderlands 2, there is a possibility though that I might play some Burnout Paradise (Yep, the servers are still up and its still a lot of fun).
Hi. I exist. And Deathwing. If you want to know about me, go to my profile. Now lets do this
