The weekend’s coming up, and you’re all ready to dive into Gears of War 3, right? That’s presuming you haven’t beaten the game already. October 1st is the beginning of a free Gold Membership weekend to boot. If, somehow, you don’t have an Xbox Live Gold account, there’s no reason not to try it this weekend. If you’re really pressed for a reason, is helping save lives a good enough cause?
The Children’s Miracle Network has once again teamed up with Microsoft. Xbox 360 Presents Gaming and Giving for Good allows players to marathon on Saturday for a worthy cause. Players can register, ask for donations for each hour played, and help children at their local hospital. Jessica Chobot appears to be at the top of donations for the event so far. If you’ve got this Saturday free, there’s no reason not to.
Me? I’m at Anime Weekend Atlanta, so I regrettably cannot.
