Extra Life! Fundraiser

 
     One of my friends, and fellow bloggers on this site, is participating in a fundraiser for children's health at the Extra Life Org.  I would ask that if you are a gamer, and would like to donate- that would be awesome.  ALL PROCEEDS go to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital (Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare).

     Here's a link to his page: Jon T. and a snippet from the page:
Dear Family, Friends, Co-workers, and Acquaintances,

I'm on a mission to help save kids, and I need your help.

Our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare, treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

On November 2nd, 2013, I will give an entire day of my time, dedicating it to play an epic 24 hour ( 25 hours if you include DST ) video game marathon to help raise money for sick and injured children, and it's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support this cause with a one-time gift that will go directly to our Minnesota CMN Gillette's Specialty Care Hospital.
      This is a good cause, and if you can, it would be much appreciated for any donations made.  This will be the 2nd year I've supported and I urge people to help.  It's benefiting both children and gamers.  Sometimes it's a combination of the two.

Batman: Arkham Origins Gets MP

Batman: Arkham Origins Gets Multiplayer


The next installment in the Batman Arkham series is getting a multiplayer element thrown into the mix.  The mode is Invisible Predator Online and it is a 3 vs. 3 vs. 2, game mode.  The game mode pits 2 of Batman's greatest villains against each other and the dynamic duo as well.  One player from each villain team will play as the Joker and Bane, while the remaining 2 players play as souped up henchmen.  From what it sound's like, the game mode will be a combination of domination and team deathmatch.  However there have been rumors that the multiplayer mode will not be featured on the Wii U version of the game.

As for the henchmen, they will be running around with special gadgets like Enhanced Vision, which works like Batman’s Detective Vision to see other players through walls and objects but with limited battery power, and deadly themed weapons like the Joker gang’s “Surprise, You’re Dead!” proximity mine gift box or the Bane crew’s ultrasonic pulse that can zap enemies even through walls.
