  1. Click here to donate! What do you MEAN this is my 10th year doing Extra Life!?!? Yep, it's true. Time has flown by! To start off the year I think it'd be nice to share some numbers... Total raised to date (Feb 2022): $15,438.45 Donations received: 286 Years I didn't make my goal: 1 Years I SMASHED my goal (a significant increase): 4 (can we make it 5!?!?) Each year I do what I can to at least meet my goal, and the new goal each year is the amount raised the year prior. This means that there's been a fairly steady upward trajectory over the years, especially with some of you folks being extremely generous especially over the last few. I'm seriously humbled by the support especially last year where the dynamic duo @spacepup and @Jeevan picked up the slack while I was going through some stuff. I can honestly never adequately express my gratitude to them, and to you all here at VGS. Last year together we raised an amazing $3707 for Sick Kids Hospital, making that the number to beat in 2022! Our resident angel in disguise, @Jeevan, has already started the donation train with a very generous... *looks at the page*... $25 every week or two... gosh. The generosity never ends with this guy, for real. In fact it's his constant donations that reminded me to make this post. He's trying to sneak them in late at night but joke's on him, I'm wide awake baybeeeeeeee! I'm going to of course be doing Game Day in November per the usual, but I'll also try and get some more streaming in every so often on weekends here and there when I can find the time. I've got a nice little setup in my bedroom for retro gaming, and I can take my laptop in there to get some time in without having to massacre my PC space. I'll update you all as I have more info!
  2. Extra Life! It's been a hectic year with lots of real life work going on, and in just the last week I quit my current job after lining up a new one, and I started going to the gym, and I just flew in and boy are my arms tired! Excuses aside, we're just a WEEK out from Extra Life 2021! This year November 6th is the day to mark on your calendar; I'll be playing games for as long as my tired old body will allow me to, starting from when I wake up early in the morning. The exact time will depend partially on the goings-on of the day prior (my last day at my current job), but I'll be sure to post in here when I know exactly what the plan is. What the heck is "Extra Life", though? Extra Life is a charity fundraiser where gamers like you and me can play games (generally live on Twitch or similar) to raise money for children's hospitals all over the world. Generally speaking a participant will play in support of their local children's hospital, as I am doing here (Sick Kids in Toronto in my case). The basic format is that all participants are given a shared Game Day on which most people will play games for 24 hours straight as a feat of willpower and show of support. I've done the full 24 hours in the past and I'll do it again, however after 9 years of this I'd be a liar if I said things always go to plan - what matters though is that we get out there and do our best, for the kids. Donate! It's the same link as it has been for the last 9 years! Here it is: https://www.extra-life.org/participant/douglasglover All proceeds go to Sick Kids here in Toronto! As with every year my goal is the amount I raised the year prior, which means that this years goal is an intimidating $3,375! You can track my progress at the link above, and/or join me on Twitch the day of! Last year I was able to get some prizing going, such as some art from our resident savant Casual Cart which was auctioned off. If you'd like to donate an item like a game or something rather than donating funds, that can help a lot too! Get in touch with me via PM and let me know! Participate! Like Goku before me with his mighty Spirit Bomb, I am empowered by your presence. Join me on Twitch, come say hi, stick around and chat, stay awhile and listen! I'll be happy to take game requests for the systems I have available to stream (TBD; generally NES, SNES, Genesis, PC), especially if you've made a donation. Twitch link: https://www.twitch.tv/glovesoffgames

Thanks! --- Hello Sages! The VGS crew here is working hard to continue raising money for Extra Life, an awesome charity - and this year we are supporting Gloves’ campaign which supports SickKids Foundation. - Check out more HERE We are conducting a special Live Auction this year, with 14 Lots of Fun gaming goodies, with a total estimated value of over $1,000! How Does it Work? This will work slightly differently than our normal auctions. The main event will be a Live Auction format, to take place on Saturday, December 18th, starting at 8:00PM Eastern Time, in the VGS Discord! We will auction off one lot at a time, through all 14 lots! Can’t make the live auction? OK! If you are unable to attend the Live Auction, you can send me a PM with your bids (do not post bids here) until 11:59PM Eastern Time, on Friday, December 17th. These will be private and not shared until auction night. Private bids before the live auction are considered commitments - if that is the winning bid, you agree it is binding. On auction night, live bidders will place their bids as we auction the lots, in our "charity-live-auction" channel in Discord. We will start there with the starting amounts listed below. If the bid begins to approach a private bid I've received, we will then announce the private bid. Live bidders will have the opportunity to continue bidding. If, during the live auction, a period of 2 minutes has elapsed after bidding, the auction will end and the winner will be announced! If you placed a private bid and won the auction, we will notify you via PM on Sunday, December 19th! Please see the third post in this thread for even more information and details about the process! I Won?! Now What? Once you have a confirmed win, you will make a donation to Glove’s Extra Life Campaign! Send me a PM with proof of your donation, as well as your address, and once we confirm it, we will send out your items to you! Super easy right?! And the money goes to a great cause. Shipping I will cover all shipping costs for the winners if you are located in the US. If you are located outside the US, I will cover at least $10 or split the actual shipping costs 50/50 with the winner. Fees There is a small transaction fee for donations to Extra Life. You are not required to cover the fee. However, we kindly request that you do so if you are able - it would be much appreciated! OK, NOW TO THE FUN STUFF! Please see below for the 14 Lots of Fun items, as well as links to Imgur galleries with pictures of everything, including some bonus items included with most of the lots! Thank you for your interest, and please let us know if you have any questions! We will continue other non-live standard Extra Life Auctions between now and December 28! And remember, you can always donate directly to Extra Life if you want to support the event but don't want to bid on the auction lots. Thank you!

  9. Huge thanks to @CasualCart for donating his art to the cause! It's that time of year again! As with every year for the last 8 years, I am participating in Extra Life! On November 7th 2020 I will be playing games live on Twitch for 24 straight hours, raising money for Sick Kids. Make a Donation! Here's the quick n' dirty deets: When: November 7th, 2020 Starting around 8am, EST Where: Twitch! Join me at this link: https://www.twitch.tv/glovesoffgames Donations: Handled through Extra Life Donate here: http://extra-life.org/participant/douglasglover ALL proceeds go toward helping kids in need! Note: You don't HAVE to donate ON Game Day; I can take donations any day of the year, so feel free to toss a coin to your Witcher whenever you feel the urge. This is a cause that is very close to my heart; kids should be the last to suffer, yet many battle through significant hardships well outside of their comprehension and ability to manage alone. Your donations really do go a long way to help make the Childrens' Miracle Network Hospitals better able to accommodate their needs during the hard times. This year the state of things has kept me quite busy so I've not been able to really come up with an hour-by-hour plan or anything (not that I ever really follow one anyway!), but per usual I am happy to follow a "Donate and I will play your game of choice" kind of approach. I of course will have games at the ready for the lulls, but there's always that incentive. If you have any ideas of how I might spice things up I'm all ears! Custom Art Auction! Speaking of spicing things up - that banner looks pretty rad, amirite? It was made by our resident art guy (title pending) CasualCart! And this year in the name of charity he has offered up his pen for the cause - I will be holding an auction here on VGS for 1 week leading up to and ending on November 7th (Game Day!), with the winner receiving a custom piece created for you by CasualCart! There will of course be some stipulations regarding content, but I'll have those ironed out for you all in the auction thread when the time comes. I'm looking forward to another Game Day chilling with you all, playing games and having a good time. I'll update you all in this thread with any news, and the occasional reminder!
  10. Day 2 Update! I'm going to be doing the second part of my stream this Saturday, December 21st! I'll be getting up and starting around 8-9am, and honestly just givin' 'er 'til I give out! Come join me as I play games to raise money for kids! It's that time of year again! TOMORROW is Game Day! I've been so busy lately I've not had a whole lot of time to prep and post about this, but tomorrow I am doing my annual 24 hour gaming marathon live on Twitch! Make a Donation! Join me as I play games to raise funds for Sick Kids hospital here in Toronto through Extra Life! Any donations are so appreciated, this charity really does mean a lot to me! If you can donate please pop by my donor page here: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=348327 I'll be starting at around 8 or 9am EST and going for the full 24 hours. If you make a donation you can request a game! I'm currently setting up the graphics and all my consoles so it should be easier to switch between them and play whatever is requested (or whatever I feel like playing, barring any requests). Hopefully it goes nice and smooth, and hopefully I see some of you there! Really looking forward to it, please do come say hi!
  11. until
    Every year for the last 7 years I've participated in Extra Life and this year will be no different! As busy as I've been lately I've not had a whole lot of time to advertise or update or... even plan really. But I am still going to definitely be doing my 24-hour gaming marathon live on Twitch, so please come by and watch me play games, chat, hang out, and maybe donate for the kids! For more info check my donor page here: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=348327 The tl;dr is that I am raising money for Sick Kids Hospital here in Toronto, playing games for 24 hours live to raise awareness (and test my sanity).
