NAVA Gamer Gathering, January 25: "2020: The Future is NOW"
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, It was Christmas and we did Christmasy things, like exchange random gifts.
- 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: THE FUTURE IS NOW (feat. 3DO). Well, the videogames mostly had it wrong. Here we are, IN THE FUTURE YEAR OF 2020, and we do not have robots playing baseball games. We do not have flying cars. We don't have arena battles for monsters. We can't time-travel. And by gosh, STILL no cure for the common cold. Videogames may have gotten it wrong, but we love them just the same. So on this day in 2020, we shall fire up some of the games that predict a certain future that may someday arrive. And together, we shall fight the common cold. OH, and the system of the future - the 3DO REAL Player - will make a rare front-and-center appearance. Game on!
As always, there will be game systems set up around the store for everyone to play, featuring this month's theme!
Arcade challenge! You know what we need to get a better peek into the future? A "future spy". Let's see if we have one here by using Sega's 1984 game Future Spy as a simulator of sorts! 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. 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 not eligible to win this month’s challenge.
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!
