NAVA Gamer's Gathering, March 28th: "Super Cute"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In our last episode, things got a bit strange with our oddly weird NAVA. The Dashing Prince rolled up unsuspecting bystanders, Master Higgins defeated Optimus Prime in an all out brawl, and a stick figure flying on a paper air plane shot down a giant cat-faced-submarine.
- In our DreamMix TV World Fighter tournament Andrew Teller walked away victorious.
- The arcade challenge was Gokujyou Parodius! and Chris A. got the high score of 299,700 and walked away with a $20 gift certificate for his prize.
- 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's NAVA: We’re getting super kawaii! That’s right it’s going to be the cutest NAVA you’ve ever seen. You’ll see the adorable baby Prince Upa save his magical kingdom from the spirit Zai, Chibi versions of Chun-Li, Ryu and Morrigan will duke it out, and Ripple the student of magic with her two Elf-Star friends Topsy and Turvy will try and seal six evil demons back into a book before her teacher turns her into a frog.
Arcade challenge! For this month’s arcade challenge we picked a Taito game with the cutest characters, the cutest soundtrack, and cutest levels; Bubble Bobble. Baron Von Blubba has transformed brothers Bub and Bob into bubble dragons and kidnapped their girlfriends. They need your help capturing monsters in bubbles, collecting yummy treats, and navigating through the 100 levels of the Cave of Monsters. 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! We decided for this tournament we’d pick an adorable fighting game, Pocket Fighter for the PS1. In this fighting game pint-sized versions of characters from Street Fighter and DarkStalkers duke it. Collecting gems during the battles allows you to immobilize your enemy, do crazy attacks or insane combos. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts around 6pm and its 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!
