Starting tomorrow at noon Central time, Jason and JT are starting a marathon gaming session for fundraising. Half the proceeds will go to Camp Quest and half will go to the Women in Secularism conference. The whole thing will be streamed and captured for your viewing pleasure (see Jason’s blog tomorrow for the stream link). Also so you can taunt people later over being trounced in the games.
Now, if you listen to JT, you’d think these guys were doing old school gaming:
I’ve spent some time seeing if we can run some of the arcade games from my youth which I never got to beat because it cost too many damn quarters. Old school arcades will be playing include:
- NBA Jam/NBA Hangtime
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Street Fighter II
- Aliens vs. Predator
- Battle Circuit
- Smash TV
- R-Type LEO
- Ninja Baseball Batman
- Altered Beast
- The Simpsons
- Turtles in Time
- Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara
- Ninja Commando
It’s not new. I’ll give them that. But oy, these kids, thinking that’s old. If you want to talk old, you’ll want to tune in when I join the guys at 8 a.m. CDT Sunday morning.
That’s also when I’ll announce a funding challenge. Only my challenge won’t be for JT and Jason. It will be for the viewers. I’ve been trying to track down a long-lost game for a while. As far the official lists go, it seems to have never existed. Only I know I played it (and I know others who played it), and I want to play it again if I can.
So if you think your Google-fu is better than mine, up for the challenge of finding a game that is well-hidden, watch Sunday morning. For that matter, tune in whenever you can. Give the guys and their guests challenges, either now or in the chatroom they’ll have set up. Or even just make a donation and watch the fun bits later on the recording.
However you do it, everybody wins, even when one of them is losing.
