In This Month's NAVA: It's BACK TO SCHOOL month, so we'll put down our pencils for a day to enjoy a day of Saturday school day shenanigans. No teachers. No tests. No homework! Instead, we'll do all of the things you're not suppoosed to do - mainly pick (virtual) fights with rival schoolmates. Among the games that will be out for everyone to play are Rockstar's "Bully", American Technos' "River City Ransom" and possibly even an appearance by a Sega Pico system.
Arcade challenge! Let's go back to school, playing as Mikie, who has to bump other students out of their seats while avoiding the teacher. It's Konami's 1984 game "Mikie". 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! In the 1998 PlayStation game "Rival Schools" you play as one of the staff or students trying to solve a series of unknown attacks and kidnappings at your school in Aoharu City. You do this by beating the stuffing out of anyone who might be a suspect. In THIS case, it's everyone else at NAVA! Who's going to graduate with top honors? 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. It's NAVA time!
