NAVA Gamer's Gathering, August 30th: "Digital Press Goes To The Movies"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In last month's event, we hosted a Nintendo World Championship '90 tournament to find a 2014 winner. Robert Hernandez won, walking off with the (reproduction) game.
- Other "tournament" games were out to play, including Donkey Kong Country and Starfox.
- The arcade challenge was Street Fighter II Championship Edition. Aaron scored the day's high and won the $20 prize.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This month! Digital Press goes to the movies. It's natural to think that ALL videogames based on movies suck, but it isn't necessarily so. Remember games like GoldenEye, Aladdin, T2: Judgment Day, Super Star Wars and Spider-Man 2 are favorites among our staff and customers. On this day, we will bombard you with a litany of good and bad and everything in-between. Play Texas Chainsaw Massacre on our 2600 kiosk! Cliffhanger on the Sega CD! Or maybe 2010: The Action Game on ColecoVision is more your style.
Arcade challenge! You probably guessed this one. It's going to be the ultimate movie-about a videogame-turned-videogame, TRON. 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! When we were young, the ColecoVision Super Action Controller was all the rage, and no better game showed off the usefulness of four buttons on a scabbard-like controller than Rocky Super Action Boxing. And what better to celebrate our movie-themed day than to pit Rocky against Clubber Lang again and again until we have a house champino? Let's see who gets to wear the belt. 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 so we can all buy, sell and trade together. Wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases. Also, bring your Nintendo 3DS to share street passes... it's NAVA time!
