Nick of YouTube fame “Wrath of Zalis” and 24 hour copilot of this year’s Extra Life charity stream cut a promo for the event. It’s a great rundown of the games we’ll be playing and the potential fun we’ll be having. “For the kids!”


Author: Spencer Cecchini

Extra Life is a charity that aims to keep kids happy in times of pain. They donate to hospitals all around the America to help kids heal and have fun. Donated items range from actual care to educational items to digital entertainment. And when you donate to this fund, you’re not just throwing your hard earned money to a big pool. You’re giving money to kids LOCALLY in need of a smile.


Where the magic will happen.

Back in 2013, The Vidya Stuff Related Team raised over $210 for Boston Children’s Hospital. While we were proud of the feat, we couldn’t help feel we could have done more. This year, VSR wants to raise over $1000 for kids in care in the New England area all else who Boston Children’s takes into their doors. They not only one of the best Children’s Hospitals in America, they’re one of the best in the world. 

How do we plan on doing that? We’re going to weave you a tale. A tale of a lone loveseat named Greyson. For 24 hours, Greyson will meet so many new faces, new rears, and backseat game for tons of titles (we’ll let it slide this time). They’ll be head to head challenges, speed runs, co-op shenanigans, pledge goals, and a gosh darn nacho hour (WE’RE REALLY HAVING IT THIS TIME)! We’re also bringing back the $50 Steam gift card raffle. Every dollar you donate is one entry so even smallest charitable gift could come back as huge karma for you. 

Joining me for the full 24 hours will be Nick from Youtube’s “Wrath of Zalis" and Nicole from the VSR’s "Advanced Novice" podcast. A slew of others say they’ll be stopping by so who knows who will be popping in and out all day.

By donating, you’re holding us all to a commitment of entertaining you but, even if we stink at that, know that you’re helping a kid be a kid again.


How Donation Incentives / $50 Steam Raffle Works

  • You can donate to anyone on the team. Select a donation amount or enter in your own donation amount. In the “Message to [team/member]” box, enter in the donation incentive you’d like to place your donation towards. For example, if you donate 10 bucks and you want to see the lights turned off during the Horror Block, enter a comment saying so and the amount will be added to the goal.
  • Once the goal is met before or during the event, the action will take place. All donations with no messages will be given to the current streamer or extra person on the couch to decide.
  • If you don’t want your name read on stream, click the “anonymous donation” check box. Otherwise, your first name will be read.
  • In order to be considered for the Steam Gift Card Raffle, YOU MUST LEAVE US A TWITTER HANDLE TO REACH OUT TO. We’ve done email in the past and it gets messy and privacy issues are … yeah. We don’t mine these handles for anything and, plus, you’ll be getting sweet social media publicity. If you don’t want your handle shown, select the “show comment to member only” option under the comment box.

Driveclub Is Like Free Ham From a Shady Meat Shop

The issues with Driveclub for the PS4 from the announcemnt of it up to today cn be compared to a disfunctional meatshop. They say, “Hey! If you have our meat membership card, you get a free ham!” You need this membership to do most things at this meatshop anyways so most will get the ham. And who wouldn’t be excited for free ham? Free ham day is coming up and the meat shop goes, “Oh, the pigs aren’t ready. We’re delaying the hams.” Fine. No one wants bad ham let alone bad, free ham. Let the pigs simmer. A few months go by with no word on the hams and then, out of the blue, the meat shop sends out an APB to all members on the hams saying the free hams will only be half the size. Buying the ham at a regular price will yield a whole, robust, ham experience. OK. Fuck you, meat shop, but at least we’re still getting free ham in some form. Can’t complain about free. A year later since the first delay, the free and premium ham are finally coming out. Premium members are walking out the shop with their hams. People with free ham vouchers are all standing around not getting service saying, “The fuck. I want ham. Where’s the line for free ham? You promised ham.” At the same people, premium ham members are coming back in saying their hams have issues and are acting funny and their hams cannot connect to the meat shop servers (if ham had an Ethernet port). The meat shop just says, “Our ham slicer is having issues. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be patient as we resolve this issue.” No. No, we will not. We were promised free ham. We gave you an extra year to prep this free/bullshit premium ham. You weren’t able to see that you ham slicer was going to worked like a lighter on the fourth of July? Don’t promise us ham if you can’t get it right because either everyone’s going to get their ham somewhere else or they’ll just go back to eating beef.
