NAVA Gamer's Gathering March 30th: "Pokemania"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In February, Neo Geo products took center stage: AES, MVS, CD and Pocket!
- Attendees pounced on the rare opportunity to link up and play Neo Geo Pocket Color games.
- The arcade challenge was "Pulstar". No one claimed the prize... what's up with that!
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.
See it all in our photo gallery section at the store's website and feel free to comment!
This month! Pokemon, Pokemon, Pokemon. Bring your Pokemon for battle! You'll see lots of link cables and transfer paks as you battle it out against your NAVA pals. We'll have a Nintendo 64 with Pokemon Stadium running all day a GameCube with Game Boy Player for some Pokemon Pinball action, a Wii for battling Pokemon Revolution types, and even a side table for those of you who want to challenge gamers to a game of Pokemon card battles. And bring your Diamond, Pearl, Black or White, as we'll be broadcasting some rare Pokemon for you to download into your game. That's right - Digital Press will be a one-day download station for Deoxys (Diamond & Pearl) and Keldeo (Black & White)!
Arcade challenge! In Japan, Pokemon was known as Pocket Monsters. Since there were never any coin-op Pokemon games, nor did Game Freaks ever develop an arcade game, nor are there really ANY games similar to its style of play, we're going to play on words instead. The game is Pocket Fighter. See what we did there? How far can you get in this Capcom mini classic without continuing? Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet!
Tournament! Prepare yourself for the ultimate Pokemon Stadium challenge! Four-player Stadium mini-games, to be precise. Will you be the tumblin'est Togepi? The eagerest Eevee? The gutsiest Golbat? Who will endure the ever-changing mini-games rumble? Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts around 6pm and it's first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament.
Remember to get your trade boxes in order and wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases... it's NAVA time!
