OtaKast Radio Network champions 3rd Annual 8-Bit Salute

Since 2010, thousands of gamers have joined forces to take part in 8-Bit Salute to show their support for the fighting men and women of the United States military and her allies by doing what they love: playing video games. For 24 straight hours, the community of supporters around Operation Supply Drop to raise both funds and awareness for the military gaming charity so we can continue our mission of getting video games to the troops deployed to combat zones through our “supply drops” and more events at military hospitals and bases.

To join us, you need only sign up to create your own team, then go out and gather the support of your friends and family through tax-deductible donations. 8-Bit Salute is all day on Saturday, May 17 through Sunday, May 18th, but we understand if life gets in the way and you can’t be a part that day. Have no fear: not only will there be an organized make-up date the next weekend on Saturday, May 24th, but in all actuality, you can really do the event any time you’d like (we’ll keep that classified)! Then it’s just a matter of grabbing a seat in your favorite chair, getting your favorite pizza place on speed dial, and finally grinding through that backlog of games that you’ve been promising to play through over the last year for as long as you can keep your eyes open!

Since our inception, Operation Supply Drop has raised almost $700,000 in games and donations, with 2013’s 8-Bit Salute raising $530,000 in donations alone. We are determined to set a new high score by breaking the million dollar mark in 2014, and with your help, we can absolutely do it!

WHEN:  May 17th 9am EST – May 18th 9am EST (Or whatever weekend works for you!)

WHERE:  In your comfy chair, at a friend’s house, or really wherever you get your game on!

GAME/PLATFORM:  Any game, any platforms. There are no restrictions: you want to play 24-hours of shuffleboard, it’s up to you!

HOW IT WORKS:  Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor you. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift.  We encourage each participant to have a goal of $250 in donations.  Easy math says that’s only $25 from 10 people.  Have a seat (or stand) and play games on May 17th and see how long you can hold out and how much you can raise for the troops!

WHO IT BENEFITS:  Gamers will be raising money to build video game filled care packages (supply drops) for members of the Armed Forces deployed to Afghanistan, conducting humanitarian missions across the globe or recovering in military hospitals in the states. We are sending numerous drops out each month which you can see here.

You can register for 8-Bit Salute absolutely free, but if you register with the $15 Elite option, you’ll be eligible for a variety of raffles and prizes, including a 2014 8-Bit Salute t-shirt when you hit $200 in funds raised! Two lucky premium gamers will win a grand prize: a next generation video game stuffed supply drop of their own ($3,000+ value), just like we send out every month to the troops!

We thank you, and the troops thank you for your support! See you on May 17th!

New Ownership

Grandview, Missouri, 4/1/2014 — 314 Publishing, LLC has completed negotiations with The Otakast Radio Network, and today is please to announce their purchase of the majority share of 314’s popular blog “Words Don’t Do It Justice” earlier today.


The Texas based podcast network has recently debuted a dirth of programming additions that made the initial offer something that was attractive to WDDIJ’s Chief Editor Matthew Elisha Williams. “At this point we’ve grown to a space where Words Don’t Do It Justice doesn’t need me actively writing content. We have great authors and I wish them and Otakast all the best in continuing the excellent track record we’ve established since opening the blog last year and our podcast earlier this week. Now I get to work behind the scenes to make sure we keep flying higher.”


When reached for comment Otakast Chief Executive Daniel Willis said “At this point in time…” Mr. Willis continued, “I feel like the network is moving in a direction-a positive one-and Mr. Williams has a vision that will definitely help us continue to grow. I’m excited and look forward to the future.


The purchase was reported earlier today through a leak from an employee which has already been sacked. But the eight thousand dollar ($8,000) price was correct and was approved unanimously by both companies in eager anticipation of the new relationship and its possibilities.


There will be a press conference at 9:15pm CDT for media questions via Google+ please add in order to be included inpress conference.
