So it is coming up soon here.  It is under a month away and Oct 17th is coming up quick.  I have been doing lots of hard training and have picked a few of my titles for the marathon.  Yes WoW will be in there for a good chunk of the time.  I am looking at a good raid to take up a chunk and dedicate 3-4 hours to the noob priest.  Currently my list includes the following titles:

  • Brütal Legend
  • World of Warcraft
  • Halo: ODST
  • Uncharted 2
  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
  • Shadow Complex (13% or less achievement)
  • NHL10
  • Madden 10 (Gonna school Dethkrusher a little)
  • Left 4 Dead
  • Fallout 3
  • CoD: Modern Warfare

My list is not limited to the following, it will all depend on how I am feeling at the time.  As we get closer, I will list some times.  I am toying with the idea of streaming this, I am still really undecided.

My goal this year is $500, which is almost twice as much as last year.  Please just donate one dollar per hour if you can.  If you cannot do that I will not turn down donations of any type.

My link to the donation page is Here.  Please donate what you can, you are helping kids.  Texas Children’s Hospital treats all kids regardless of their ability to pay.  This is a absolutely wonderful cause.

There are two charities I really truly believe in.  One is the Texas Children’s Hospital and the other is Child’s Play.  A fellow gamer out at Sarcastic Gamer has setup the second annual extralife charity run.  This is a fund raiser where you sponsor players to “run” their marathon for 24 hours.  It is a 24 hour gaming marathon.  I did it last year and made it almost 20 hours.  Last year they raised a total of $120,000.  I used WoW as a majority of my time, logging in almost 13 straight hours in game.   This marathon is about finding a cure for pediatric cancer.

The training has started again for this year.   I have 3 months before the marathon starts on October 17.  I will be posting my training routine.  I will be hoping some thing big will drop in-game at or around there and will give me the distraction I want and need.

You can read all about it on my page: and the offical page is

I am looking for a dollar an hour, so please sponsor what you can.

All this money goes directly to the Texas Children’s Hospital.

I encourage everyone who can to donate or sign-up and just do it as well!
