This Month's NAVA: We’re teaming up with our friends from A Video Game Con for this NAVA, and will be giving away tickets to A Video Game Con. If you remember from last NAVA we announced that this NAVA would be a NAVA by the people for the people. We left out a suggestion box and allowed NAVA attendees to make suggestions on what we would play this NAVA. The people have spoken! Games set up for free play will be such titles as Power Stone 2 for the Dreamcast, Tetris Attack for the SNES and Pokemon Stadium for the Nintendo 64!
Arcade challenge! The arcade challenge won by a long shot! And the game this month will be the sequel to Galaxian but the prequel to Gaplus, the Namco classic Galaga! Use your ship to exterminate intergalactic bugs, but look out for the tractor beams, or maybe you won’t! Maybe this NAVA we will finally decide which is better, allowing yourself to be captured to receive two ships at once, or is it better to keep the spare life. 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 along with a free ticket to A Video Game Con 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! Also if you have won last month’s NAVA arcade challenge you are no eligible to win this month’s challenge.
Tournament! Our tournament was another land slide victory in our suggestion box tally; Street Fighter. We’re having a Street Fighter Tournament at this month’s NAVA, and that’s all we’re telling you! The specific game in the series or console we will be playing it on in a secret until the tournament starts. The winner of the completion will receive a ticket to A Video Game Con. 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!
