This Sunday, I will be appearing as an interview guest on Headshots from the Heart, a Child’s Play charity event where they play Borderlands to… hang on. Let me just give you the scoop from their site:
There are many marathons online which contribute to causes like this one, but what makes Headshots from the Heart unique is that viewers not only have the option to donate directly, but to pledge an amount of money to be earned by the players each time they defeat a foe with a critical hit, or “Head shot”. This will force us not merely to play for twenty-four hours straight, but to play well, in order to earn your money for charity. Children deserve our best, and we at Headshots from the Heart intend to give it to them.
So… a twenty-four hour game of four-person Borderlands. That sounds like enough time to play through the tutorial and then car-wrestle for twenty hours. Or maybe that’s just me.
Twenty-four hours of multiplayer Borderlands? Let’s hope Gamespy behaves in some way other than the way it usually behaves. (Or maybe they’re playing on XBox?)
The event begins tomorrow at 12:30pm EST. (5:30pm GMT) I’ll be appearing on Sunday at 10am EST. (3pm GMT) If all goes well, we should be able to get the video feed working this time. Please tune in if you can.

Did you anticipate the big plot twist of Batman: Arkham City? Here's all the ways the game hid that secret from you while also rubbing your nose in it.
The Death of Half-Life
Valve still hasn't admitted it, but the Half-Life franchise is dead. So what made these games so popular anyway?
