Paragon Studios is also taking part. The City of Heroes crew is playing for charity and could use more donations. :)

I got an email from Extra Life earlier today saying that 65% of the people who had signed up didn't have a single donation, and asking for those of us with donations to try and pick up the slack.

I'm having to nearly beat friends and family to get anything out of them for this event. I understand though that times are hard, but I'm newly unemployed and on temporary disability for medical issues and still managed to donate.

Okay... I applaud every dollar they're able to get for this event. More people need to be donating towards children's charities. I've had some long stints in games... only sleeping 1 or 2 hours in a 24 hour period.

However, I just don't find playing games -- especially playing games a long time -- an achievement. I wouldn't ever sponsor someone to play video games for 24 hours straight -- UNLESS it was someone who didn't normally play video games. If someone came up to me and asked me to sponsor them in this, I'd tell them to get an hour of aerobic exercise instead and I'll send in the money.

The friends of people who play MMOs, and know they play MMOs, probably think they play enough video games and wouldn't consider a 24-hour period much of a challenge or something to strive for.

Just my opinion.
