Extra Life Follow-Up Prize Raffle

Just a quick addendum to my previous post about last weekend's Extra Life charity videogame marathon. During our livestream event, we gave away a bunch of prizes, but we still have a few things left, including T-shirts and gift vouchers from Insert Coin Clothing, game downloads from GOG.com, and a bit of Tomb Raider swag as well.

If you'd like a chance to win one of these prizes, you'll find details and an entry form here. I will announce the winners on Saturday, November 16.

Once again, my sincere thanks to everyone who participated and donated, and to our cool and very generous sponsors, GOG.com, Insert Coin Clothing, Crystal Dynamics, and Chris Jones, the raider who donated the posters.

Team Tomb Raider Community Raised $2,809 for Extra Life!

As you probably know, last weekend a bunch of us raiders got together to play games for Extra Life, a charity videogame marathon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Together we raised. . . drumroll please. . . $2,809!

Along with $2,039 in direct donations through our Extra Life team page, the Custom Tomb Raider Xbox 360 Bundle donated by our wonderful benefactors at Crystal Dynamics sold on eBay for $770! Congratulations and thanks to the winning bidder, Jay from Hawaii. Jay, you're a gentleman and an angel, as well as a hardcore fan. :D

I'd also like to thank everyone on our team—Nora, Hunter, Phill, Laura, Sinead, Bill, Scott, Colin, Amanda, Daryl, Nick and David—as well as the other gamers who played on our Extra Life livestream—Mark, Nath, Luka, Liam, and my wingman (wingwoman?), Queen Crispy—and of course everyone who tuned in, helped spread the word, and donated generously. I love you all!

If you missed the event itself, it's not too late to show your support. Extra Life's organizers are hoping to top the $4 MILLION mark over the next few days. So if you can spare even a few dollars, your help would be much appreciated. For more info about the event, visit Extra-Life.org. To donate, click the banner above.

If you'd like to join the team and play with us next year, just send me an email or tweet (@stellalune) and I'll add you to the roster. I'll be contacting everyone next September to plan for Extra Life 2014.

Thank you for your support! Tomb Raider fans are the best!

Team Tomb Raider Community Extra Life Livestream Highlights

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to Extra Life so far, to all of you playing on the livestream and watching, and to everyone who's helped to spread the word about the marathon. Without your videos, tweets, posts, and shares, I'd be sitting in a room playing by myself. :(

I also want to thank our wonderful sponsors, Crystal Dynamics, for donating the Xbox bundle and other goodies, as well as GOG.com and Insert Coin Clothing for providing prizes for our giveaway.
