- Our Pocket Fighter tournament was cut short by a “Swatting” that happened last NAVA.
- The arcade challenge was Bubble Bobble and Chris A. got the high score of 906,070, and walked away with a $20 gift certificate for his prize.

This Month's NAVA: We honor the Boys (and girls) in Blue with a police themed NAVA. Michael Hardy and James Cool will infiltrate the E.V.L. Inc. headquarters in Virtua Cop for the Sega Saturn. We will rise through the ranks from rookie cop to SWAT then to Delta Force in Crime Patrol for the 3DO. Finally we will once and for all put an end to the notorious “Mad Dog” McCree in the Sega CD game of the same name. There will be a lot of light gun games going on so expect to see a lot of CRTs on the counter!
Arcade challenge! This month’s arcade challenge is Cyber Police ESWAT. In this “side scrolling beat ‘em up” style shooter you play as Duke Oda, a member of the Cyber Police force in the city of Liberty, not to be confused with Grand Theft Auto’s Liberty City. As you rise through the ranks your equipment improves along side your weapons until you suit up in a “long-range supersonic powered suit” complete with Turbo-Booster Thrusters and extra ammunition. 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! This NAVA’s tournament is Virtua Cop on the Sega Saturn. You and another player will try to foil the plans of Joe Fang and infiltrate E.V.L. Inc. Whoever gets the highest score between the two will move onto the next round. 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!
