Some of you may remember that last year N4G staff and a number of members and friends participated in Extra Life, and for the last four years thousands of gamers have joined together annually to play for 24 hours in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
These days my 24 hour marathons involve my lovely little baby, and so I'm happy to place my support behind other teams of Extra Life gamers. Within our broader N4G community you'll catch sight of members, contributors and site owners all taking part and I urge you to dive in - there's really no better way to cope with the Fall crush of games than with a 24 hr marathon! If you're looking for a particularly tempting team to join or support, the guys at PSNation ( http://www.psnation.org/spe... ) have more than a little oomph behind their campaign:
- Debuting for the first time ever gameplay from the HD Remake of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee for PSN
- Offering a chance to play with them against the folks from Naughty Dog in Uncharted 3 during the marathon
- A Special prize (details to be eligible are listed on the page) is an actual prop used in an Uncharted 2 promo
- Other prizes include 3 PS Vita's bundled with 7 games each, and a pair of gaming headphones from Astrogaming

They also have a ton of other game codes from developers such as Robot Entertainment, Spiderweb Software, Mommy's Best Games, and Arcen Games to give away!
