Game Day is a little over a week away, and I am finally getting the last bit of details into place! I configured the ExtraLifeHelper to use on my livestream, and have tweaked the layout a tiny bit. I also am using my brand new shiny HD Webcam for casting now as well! Plus, this year I will have a second monitor set up so I can monitor Twitch Chat and Discord without having to alt+Tab from whatever game I happen to be playing at the time. Streaming skills +3 this year! XD
In related news, I am just shy of being halfway to my goal for 2017! Thank you to everyone who has donated, and if you haven't yet- please consider making a donation, even if its only a few dollars! All donations go directly to Children's Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ!
Looking forward to Game Day! I will be posting Discord channel information soon!
We are officially 20 days away from game day! Here is my planned streaming schedule for Saturday, November 4, beginning at 8:00 AM EST.
Please note- this time around, if I have a difficultly streaming any game in particular, Skyrim will be substituted in its place (to avoid last year's Diablo 3 debacle).
Please feel free to watch my stream, and please consider donating!!
Hey folks! Game Day is quickly approaching, and I just wanted to announce that I'll be adding a new game into the streaming mix that day- .hack//G.U. Last Recode! It's recently been announced and will be released the day before Game Day- November 3!
I loved .hack... the games, both original anime series (I have //SIGN and LoT floating around here somewhere on DVD), the CCG... I've even cosplayed as two of the characters from //SIGN. .hack is the reason I started playing MMOs. I never finished all of //G.U., so I'm super excited for this, and to share it on Extra Life Game Day!
School's out and so is a new raid in World of Warcraft! I will be streaming on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights with the two raid teams I run with. If you're a WoW player, Tues/Wed will be from a Restoration Shaman's point of view, and Fri/Sat nights will be from a Mistweaver Monk's (yes, I enjoy playing healers). Feel free to check it out- I will be away here and there throughout the summer, but I always upload my streams to my youtube channel that day after! You can check it out at https://www.youtube.com/user/binyadotorg! :D
As always, thanks for checking this out and thank you so much for your support!
In a few short hours it'll be my birthday, and I just wanted to suggest that instead of posting happy birthday wishes on my wall, you consider making a $5 donation to my Extra Life page.
Extra Life is a non-profit that raises money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through gaming. For the 3rd consecutive year, I'm "playing" for the Children's Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ.
Last year, Extra Life managed to raise over $9 million for CMN Hospitals. Game Day is November 4, and my goal for 2017 is $400. It would mean a lot if you would consider donating, even a small amount. It is a tax-deductible donation, if that entices you in any way.
Thanks for reading this, and thank you very much if you decide to donate. It means a lot. ??
Here we go, folks! I have signed up for the THIRD consecutive year to raise money through Extra Life for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (specifically the Children's Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ).
After last year's successful fundraising, I've set 2017's goal at $400.00! I know, with your help and support, that I can make this goal a reality!
I am also planning to stream on Twitch 1-2 times a week, in the lead-up to the 24-hour game day on NOVEMBER 4, 2017!
Mark your calendars, and if you're interested in participating in some live-streamed tabletop or board game fun on that day, please let me know! I'd love to make more of a social event of it this year and get some more friends involved (that can be a long, lonely 24 hours in front of the computer)!
Thank you in advance for all of your help and support!!!

Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page! I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.
To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.
I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
