28 NAVA Gamer's Gathering, October 28th: "October Cosplay 2K17"
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 exclaimed "WE CAN DO IT" as we honored the brave women of videogames.
- The 6pm tournament would have been Dead or Alive 4 and the winner would have been a woman, but the chauvinist male-dominated attendees scoffed and the contest was never held.
- The arcade challenge was the game Psycho Soldier. The high score was attained and that person earned a $20 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! NOTE: chauvinists also blocked the photo taking, so you'll get our most recent Friday night tournament photos instead.
IMPORTANT NOTE: THE EMPLOYEE AREA AT THE BACK OF THE STORE WILL BE RESTRICTED TO EMPLOYEES ONLY. BEVERAGES AND SNACKS CAN BE BROUGHT AS USUAL AND WILL BE KEPT ON THE ISLAND COUNTERTOPS.
In This Month's NAVA: It will be almost Halloween when NAVA presents itself so what better way to warm up your costume and try to win a prize?! BE IN COSTUME at 6pm when our all-star judging panel votes on the top three costumes and a special "most original" category, all for great prizes! Simply being IN COSTUME gets you 15% off of all used merchandise in the store all day long. NOTE: "IN COSTUME" means an actual costume. 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" will not qualify.
Arcade challenge! BOO. It's an all-day race to the top of the leader board in AM Factory's "Nightmare In The Dark"! 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 arcade challenge you are no eligible to win this month’s challenge.
Tournament! Sega's House of The Dead is a classic "scary" Halloween-relevant game, so we're going to go a slightly different route and tournament-play Sega's TYPING of The Dead on the Dreamcast instead. Head-to-head, round-robin furious keystrokes... in costume! Can you out-type your opponent and kill the most zombies, creeps and freaks? Let's find out. 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!
