Special Leisure Suit Larry marathon tomorrow for charity!!

OOPS!!!  Ok, so maybe I should be shot for this because I feel like this should have been at the TOP of the list of things to tell you about.  Please don't hate me!!!

Tomorrow, one of our fans, John A., is hosting a special marathon session where he's going to play through the entire Leisure Suit Larry franchise starting at LSL 1 and ending at LSL 7.  He's doing this to raise money for the campaign and to also raise money for charity.  50% of the money raised will go directly to the "It Gets Better Project" (www.itgetsbetter.org) and the other 50% will go to our Kickstarter campaign.  All of us here at Replay can not think of a kinder thing to do for such a special charity that is 100% altruistic and giving directly from his heart. 

As an added bonus, Al Lowe, Josh Mandel, and myself will make guest appearances throughout the marathon and chat / interact with you guys.  We obviously can't stay in there the whole time, but hopefully you'll be in there when one of us are there so you can catch us and ask us ALMOST anything.  :)

Hopefully we can raise enough money to make a difference in these kid's lives.  Below is a video John put together to talk about the event and here is the direct link where you should go tomorrow, Saturday, from 10am Eastern time until midnight:   http://www.twitch.tv/JohnnyPhantom

See you online!!!

      haha you guys are awesome :D
      Didn't take twitch too long to hear us it would seem

      You know the stream is also working on TwitchTv too? They probably listened to our complaints!

    4. Michael Andrews on April 28, 2012

      Hooray for the new stream!!!!!

    5. Riggo on April 28, 2012

      Probably the a-hole who pulled his Larry pledge when he saw what the charity was.

      Not the only one. I also reported them. I have reported all the recommended channels that popped up when I tried to access this feed. They are all violent games.

    7. Michael Andrews on April 28, 2012

      I used the report flag on Justin's own page to complain that his user name "forcekin" was sexually suggestive, therefore inappropriate, and that the page should be banned/shut down. Let's see if "one person can make a difference" as it did with Larry.

      Good man. I think they've done themselves a great disservice today and hope we can continue soon :)

      They have been well spammed. I have also sent them complaints about this. There is always cam4. I am sure he could set up his feed there.

    10. RoyMartin on April 28, 2012

      This is just sad. I really hope John can continue elsewhere. Twitch.tv should be ashamed of themselves.

      I did too John!!! Oh and I am NOT PART OF THAT COMMUNITY that "decided" to close it... just saying.... :)

    12. Michael Andrews on April 28, 2012

      http://www.justin.tv/justin Let's complain and get the founder of twitch.tv banned too!!!

    13. Sven Opitz on April 28, 2012

      "The community has closed this channel due to terms of service violations."
      What a nice and neutral way of putting it. If the community did it, no one is responsible, as the responsibility is shared by all users, so any single one persons share is insignificant.

      Thank you for the update Zach, this is really disappointing and John must feel terrible, I mean he has prepared for this, he wanted to help two organizations that mean a lot to him and now he can't for no good reason. Please tell him (or maybe you read this yourself), I enjoyed the part I saw immensely and I am truly sorry it had to end so soon.

    14. Replay Games Creator on April 28, 2012

      I can't believe they shut us down!!! WHAT THE HELL?

      Does anybody know if he put it up somewhere else? I'll call him and find out...stay tuned. I'll post the results here, gang...

      I just noticed Alexander's post "Wheaton's Law" - AHHAHAHAHA Legend!

    18. Zachery W Egan on April 28, 2012

      He posted this on the youtube video --

      Trying, but so far most sites i sign up for make me wait a few hours for channel activation.. ugh

      I got 7 Hours in, Completed LSL1 EGA, LSL1 VGA, and almost LSL2 before banned from Twitch.tv. Raided $1,100! For The "it Gets Better Project" and "Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded" at the time of this comment, hoping more donations will come in even with the feed gone :(

      Al could have done it, he was there, so he definately knew about it ;)

      Not so much a bad idea, as something that needs manual policing. They took Johnny down after receiving a report from someone who had no right to complain! What the heck..? I mean, it sure wasn't Al who reported him..

    22. Zachery W Egan on April 28, 2012

      Any word on if he is trying to get a stream up elsewhere?

    23. Alexander Dietrich on April 28, 2012

      Just goes to show that DMCA, SOPA, ACTA, etc. are always a bad idea.

      If you feel like donating anyway, I believe this is the ChipIn Link that was on the marathon page:
      https://www.chipin.com/contribute/id/c12644ea28bae4a9

      Or you could simply donate to It Gets Better directly and up your pledge here! ;)

      Spam it up Bobby. I went the direct email approach myself, with no softening of my anger and disappointment in them :)
      I guess that at least brings a bit of a smile.. sweet, sweet, valid rage outlet hehe

    25. Michael Andrews on April 28, 2012

      I've posted on FB and sent them tweets and there are not responding to anyone it seems. What a way for a website to make a first impression on me during my first (and now last) visit. Hopefully the stream gets up elsewhere and the link is posted here. Or TwitchTV gives this kickstarter and the charity a hefty donation.

      I get the feeling if someone starts to report them on YouTube, they will be taken down too... What a world we live in... I'm all for protecting our children but come on... this was Leisure Suit Larry! The news where they report what happens at war zones is ok to be aired, but oh no... Larry has to be censored!!

    27. Michael Andrews on April 28, 2012

      It's ironic that the charity the money was going towards was against bullying/harassment, and yet what we have is a bully getting his way by complaining. If someone doesn't want to watch, no problem, but don't ruin it for the 3,000+ other people who are enjoying it.

      I posted this on every place I could on their facebook page.
      They killed this charity event even with the game creators backing. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/leisuresuitlarry/make-leisure-suit-larry-come-again/posts/216383

    30. Sven Opitz on April 28, 2012

      The time was now, the place I am not sure about, I mean you can find Lets play videos on youtube and they don't have to take them down...
      Whoever reported this: Thank you soooo much, I hope you feel warm inside for stopping a charity event.

      Makes me sad... I was enjoying it so much... the good thing is... the Internet isn't owned by anyone... so there will be a time and place to do this again :)

      Indeed. Some little fkwit thinking he's special has ruined it for everyone.

      I can't believe it was cut off... how prude can someone be to report this for one and for two: then don't even COME HERE!!! Also to what ever company was taking the complaint and actually decided to cut it.. What you did is WRONG on so many levels...

      Andrzej Mackiewicz on April 28, 2012

      I did the same as you Zach, and can't talk to him.. I messaged him but they may have nuked his whole twitch account.. He mentioned some service that I assume has similar to twitch but without the donation aspect.. Can only hope he does it and thinks to add a link here XD

    40. Zachery W Egan on April 28, 2012

      Is he starting a livestream or another stream?

      Andrzej Mackiewicz on April 28, 2012

      Johnny was saying he might open an account with a decent service and keep streaming- is anyone still in the chat window to pass on a link?

      Those total sock cuckers at twitch stopped Johnny from broadcasting due to some r-soul reporting him for no reason whatsoever. Way to ruin a Larry marathon that was going really well, jerks.

    45. Zachery W Egan on April 28, 2012

      Bah, I refreshed the screen and can't even talk in the chat yet. Any updates? I suggest everyone post on their facebook and twitter demanding answers!

    46. Jan Bechtum on April 28, 2012

      Yeah what a bunch of a$$holes...

    47. Daniel LeFever on April 28, 2012

      Darn. TwitchTV banned it :(
