Several of the staff members of Platform Nation and some of their gaming community, are getting together for a very special cause. They're going to be gaming for 50 hours straight, that's right, 50 hours. Right now your probably thinking to yourself, why? Well the reason they are is to help out those that can't. What is going on is Platform Nation has teamed up with several developers and publishers to play their games during those 50 hours and in return, everything that they have donated for Playapalooza '08, will then be turned around and given directly to those at the Child's Play Charity which is dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 40 hospitals worldwide, during this years Penny Arcade Expo.
