This year's Extra Life day is October 20.

Here are some details on what games "Children of Akatosh" plan on playing tomorrow:

"It’s a widespread assortment, but the majority are planning to play WoW- Mists of Pandaria, Borderlands 2, Guild Wars 2, and Left 4 Dead 2. Several of us are actually setting up time slots for genres so a lot of the single-player hours were actually split between Dishonored and Skyrim. There’s even several of us dedicating time to the ridiculously-impossible-to-beat-old-school games, like Legacy of the Wizard for NES."

And here's some advice from them on how you can help support Extra Life:

"Really at this point for 2012 Extra-Life Marathon, it’s to Donate and to share through social media.
