In This Month's NAVA: February 28th is the TWENTY YEAR anniversary of Grand Theft Auto. Can you believe it's been that long? To celebrate, we are dedicating this month's event to GTA and the games that it has inspired. It will be all crime, all day long.
Arcade challenge! Since we're celebrating GTA, let's do some thieving "old school" style on the 1981 Pacific Novelty game "Thief"! Drive a car around and collect cash while being pursued by the police... sound familiar? Be the best at this 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! There are so many mini-games in the GTA series, so we chose one that's fun to watch and compete in: parachute jumps! Can you rake in the most cash on your jump? 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!
