NAVA Gamer's Gathering, March 25th: "Friendly Fire"
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, we celebrated the 23rd annual 3DO Invitational. The world's greatest 3DO players showed up for a day of grueling competition.
- The arcade challenge was Bust-A-Move and Frank "The Tank" won with a score of over 1.7 million points, taking a $20 gift certificate for his prize.
- Our Super Melee (Star Control II) tournament was won by Rob S. Remember to sign up for the tournaments early in the day to ensure you get a spot! Also, that it even happens.
- 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!
In This Month's NAVA: Nintendo's Robotic Operating Buddy (ROB) is your friend. He will be here all day, by your side, to tackle the challenges of Gyromite and Stack Up. When you're not playing with ROB, grab a different, less robotic friend to play in any number of CO-OP games that will be set up around the store. YOU CAN'T DO THIS ALONE.
Arcade challenge! 8ing/Raizing is a game developer best known for their various "bullet hell" shooters. A favorite around here is their 1999 gem, Battle Bakraid. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE. Find a partner and put up the best combined score (calculators available upon request) to win the day's challenge. 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 (each!) 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.
