This Month's NAVA: It’s getting mighty spooky out there, & pretty scary too. It’s time again for our annual October Cosplay NAVA. Don’t get too scared when you see games like Haunted Castle, DarkStalkers 3, or Splatterhouse!
As every year prior we will be having a Costume Contest. Come dressed in a costume this NAVA and get 15% off any used merchandise in store! The winner of the contest gets a $50 gift certificate! Same rules as previous years, only REAL costumes qualify. Showing up in a baseball cap claiming to be "a baseball player", or with 5 o'clock shadow claiming to be "a bum", or doing BOTH claiming to be Joe Santulli isn't going to be good enough.
Arcade challenge! Castlevania is one of those games that fits into the Halloween theme perfectly. With its many references to classic horror movies & its overall spooky theme it’s one of the best games suited for all-hallows-eve. That’s why for this month’s NAVA we chose Haunted Castle as the arcade challenge. The game plays a lot like Castlevania, because it is Castlevania. 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! Also if you have won last month’s NAVA arcade challenge you are no eligible to win this month’s challenge.
Tournament! Another game series that references a lot of classic horror movies is Darkstalkers & just like in previous years we will be having our annual Darkstalkers 3 tournament. Who is our best Demitri, Morrigan or Sasquatch? Let's find out. 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!
