Extra Life 2010 Live

Last week Peter told you about a charity event called Extra Life, organised by our lovely friends over at Sarcastic Gamer. Along with thousands of other gamers our very own Blair is taking part right now with Jon Brady (better known as Yamster), one of the editors at Sarcastic Gamer.

In fact you can check out a live stream of them playing right here, they’re playing Rock Band for 24 hours solid. It all kicked off at 8am and this morning and it seems that Jon’s voice has held out so far, but with a lot of singing ahead of him we can only hope he manages the whole 24 hours.

In fact if you donate to Yamster and get him up to $600 he’s pledged to sing and play guitar at the same time for an hour. In the same spirit getting Blair up to $450 will get you an hour of one legged bass playing. And if Rock Band isn’t your thing then Sarcastic Gamer has a directory of all the events that are being live streamed today.

I know we’re not always the most serious of people here at TSA but this is all for charity to support the Children’s Miracle Network of hospitals; I think we can all agree that’s a very good cause indeed. These guys and gals need your support, not only your donations but your moral support to get through 24 hours of solid gaming.

It may sound easy, but I can’t imagine gaming for 24 hours knowing that you can’t stop. So please; check out some of the events, donate if you can and spread word throughout the internet however you can.



  1. Shame the vid is in Flash. Time to fire up the laptop.

    • Silly uStream. Dunno if there’s anywhere that does live HTML5 streaming right now. Hm.

      • Stickam ?
        I know it’s a bit late now but there’s a free iPhone/iPod app.

  2. I’m streaming, is fun in the chat. They’re doing Blink 182 at the moment :)

  3. Lol, Yam just got to $600, he will be playing that guitar in the next few mins xD

    • That was me who tipped him over :D

      • Good on you sir, this is going to be hilarious!

  4. access to stream denied! stupid work computers!

    • There recording it anyway so if you want to watch bits later you can :p

  5. Shame I can’t be taking part this year (any excuse for a weekends gaming) but Freeformation awaits me instead.

    Great initiative guys, can’t beat a good cause, I’ll catch up with the recording next week.

  6. I’m watching it although it doesn’t help when you’re trying to do homework lol

    • Yeah I’m trying to work right now. Not easy

  7. Whilst I may not be Rock Banding for 24 hours, so far I’ve played Enslaved and Sonic 4 for the first time and they’re both awesome. Got friend coming round tonight to help cheer me on :-p

  8. i think they should play ET the game for 24 hours }:)>.

  9. I am quietly abusing them in Audience chat. Yay! :-)

    • Just what they need when they’re playing for 24 hours :P

      • I’ve been surprisingly gentle and they made it through the suicide-inducing Radiohead song. Seriously, well done, lads.

      • I have just donated more money to get them to play Spongebob Squarepants. I don’t even know what song it is but I just want to see how idiotic they look/sound. Starting in a moment, I believe.

  10. Lady Gaga soon. All we need is Kris as their back-up dancer.
