on http://www.twitch.tv/NUReviews

Hey everybody! With about a week and a half left until the stream, we’ll now announce the full details for the raffle. For every $5 you donate you will gain one entry into the raffle, all you have to do is include an email/twitter handle and name in the comment of your donation so we know how to get in touch with you. The winners of the raffle will be decided shortly after the stream, after we count up all the entries. You’re only viable to win one item, so if you win you will be taken out of the raffle. The following items are all the ones that you are able to win:
One of Three $20 store credit for the Nintendo eShop, PSN, or Xbox Live Arcade
Earthbound for Wii U VC
Paper Mario Wii VC
Wonderful 101 Game Code
Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze Game Code
XCOM Enemy Unknown Steam Game Code
Walmart Exclusive Golden Mario Amiibo Unopened
And our grand prize item, donated graciously by a friend at NetherRealm Studios:
A Mortal Kombat X poster signed by the developers!
———————————————————————————————

Any donations taken before the stream starts or after it ends will not be viable for the raffle. Please keep your donations in increments of $5 if you’re going to make multiple donations for multiple entries. Any donations made in non $5 increments may miss out on an entry.
If you win a game code that doesn’t work, we will refund your prize if you are able to prove the code doesn’t work. To do so you must send us a video that, in one take, shows your download/redemption list up to the date of recording, you clearly putting in the code, and the invalid error that follows. We know it’s a bit to ask, but it’s the only way we can prove that you’re not trying to pull the wool over our eyes. If we agree that you have proven properly that the code doesn’t work, we will refund to you in store credit either equal to the cost of the game, or the smallest amount of credit we can over the price of the game. For physical prizes shipping will be free for any US entrants, for entrants out side of the United States we may ask you to pay us a shipping fee.

24 Hour ‘Extra Life’ Charity Stream Announcement


I’m proud to announce that NUReviews will be participating in a twenty-four hour livestream for the charity, Extra Life, who raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

DATE OF THE EVENT

Saturday May 23rd, 2015 – 2pm
to
Sunday May 24th, 2015 – 2pm

We’ll be streaming on our Twitch page

www.twitch.tv/nureviews

 
To keep things fun (or at least try to), we’ll be playing various console party games. Aside from obviously Mario Party, we’ll play other games too, like Crash Bash, Pac-Man Party, Fortune Street, Fusion Frenzy, and even a Viva Pinata one! We’ll end things off with a 50 turn game of Mario Party where the audience can contribute to how badly we destroy our livers.

Of course, aside from that, donors will be eligible for giveaways! For every $5  you donate, you’ll get one entry to win one of the following:

  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropic Freeze (Download Code)
  • The Wonderful 101 (Download Code)
  • Earthbound (Wii U Virtual Console Code)
  • Paper Mario (Wii Virtual Console Code)
  • Mario Amiibo – Gold Edition (Factory Sealed)
  • *More prizes to be announced!*

We’re aiming to raise at least $500, which shouldn’t be too unreasonable. If you are unable to donate, we’ll appreciate if upi can at least tune in and spread the word about our event. We want this to become a yearly thing!

We’ll post updates on our Facebook page, Twitter, and this blog post as well, so check it frequently.
