Tune In To Game Informer's Extra Life Live Stream, Walk Away With Piles Of Loot

Last year, Game Informer's Extra Life live stream raised over $38,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, and we're hoping to crush that number this year. Our goal is to raise over $50,000 in the span of a 25-hour live stream, beginning at 8 a.m. CT on November 5. You can watch it right here on Game Informer's website, or tune in on YouTube and Twitch.

To raise that money, Game Informer staffers will do just about anything if the price is right. Last year, they ate ghost peppers and wore strange clothing. This year, we have even more silly stunts and events planned for our staff. We also want you the viewer to be engaged and have something to remember the live stream by. You can donate to join us for multiplayer sessions, and can also purchase amazing loot through our auctions, which hit every half hour. We are auctioning off more stuff than we ever have, and it's all awesome. From Fallout 4 merchandise autographed by the entire development team to bundles consisting of games, clothing, and rare collectibles, you may want to tune in the entire 25 hours just to shop for cool things, all in support of the kids!

Here's a small taste of items that will be up for auction:

Getting Up-Close With NES Classic Edition

Getting Up-Close With NES Classic Edition

We got our NES Classic Edition console in today, and in response we carefully ripped open the package and took a bunch of photos.

The box is suprisingly small. It's a little bigger than a stack of about five DVD cases.

You know it's retro because the word 'retro' is written in pixelated text on the back.

Get Ready For Our 25-Hour Extra Life Streaming Extravaganza!

Autumn is a special time for the gaming community, where an event known as Extra Life brings together gamers everywhere to raise money for children's hospitals. This year Game Informer will be live streaming dozens of fun games for 25 hours from 8am to 8am CT November 5th-6th on our Twitch and Youtube channels to raise money for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare.

Last year our incredible community raised over $38,000, setting a new record for all of us and propelling us to push even further. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved (even those editors tortured by ghost peppers) and we can't wait to do it again. 

We have a mountain of gaming items to auction off, including limited edition systems, figurines, controllers, and full games. Seriously, we have a lot of games to give away. More than all other years combined. We're also going to be playing some really great games and throwing in shocking surprises and revelations along the way. If you'd like to help raise some money for the kids, you can join Team Game Informer right now and start asking for donations, and when the stream kicks off head to our donation page to be eligible for some awesome rewards.  So come hang out with us on Nov. 5th and let's do some good. For the kids!

Science-Fiction Weekly – Cloverfield 3, Edge Of Tomorrow 2, Star Trek Vs. Aliens, Exile's End

about X hours ago from

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is this week's big science-fiction release. As strange as it is to link Call of Duty to the science-fiction genre, I sadly can't go into specifics regarding its quality just yet. Infinite Warfare hits store shelves (and digital spaces) on Friday, and our review, penned by the brilliant Dan Tack, will be released soon. I stand by my claim that Infinite Warfare is my most anticipated game of the fall. A small sliver of my anticipation comes from the simple fact that I'm a fan of this series, but I mostly want to dive into this entry because Activision is taking a real chance on it, something we rarely see from established and annualized series. Activision may alienate fans with the hard science-fiction angle, but I believe rocketing into the cosmos and leaving the past behind is the best thing that could happen to Call of Duty. This move shakes things up, and also gives us nice separation between Call of Duty and Battlefield. This year's batch of shooters all have unique stances in the first-person shooter field, and that's a great thing.
