USG's Extra Life Stream Kicks Off This Weekend, with Guests and Giveaways - When and Where to Watch

We're streaming until (one of us) drops!

Last week, we announced that USgamer would be doing its first-ever Extra Life stream this weekend. Starting November 2nd at 12:00 p.m. CT, Eric will be streaming from his home setup out to the world wide web. Throughout the stream we'll have guests, games, and even key giveaways for generous donors!

You can catch all the action live on USgamer's Twitch channel, where for 24 (technically 25, shoutout to Daylight Savings) hours, we'll be playing games to raise money for Child's Play and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. If you want to donate, we'll have a link on the stream page, or you can head over to our Extra Life team page!

If you want in on the giveaways, it's simple—just donate! All donors will get an entry into our raffle pool. We'll be giving out keys during various segments throughout the stream, courtesy of some generous donations from publishers and developers.

So what's on deck? Here's the schedule (subject to change if chaos ensues, all times in US Central):

A huge thanks to our guests for taking time to appear over the weekend, and to Private Division and Capcom for donating keys to give away during the stream! Be sure to tune in and catch all the fun this Saturday, Nov. 2, on the USG Twitch channel.
