NAVA Gamer Gathering, January 27: "Versus Capcom Forever"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In our Christmas NAVA, attendees brought and received random videogaming gifts. Some highlights included a factory sealed SNES mini, a factory sealed C64 mini, and a $500 (not a typo) gift certificate!
- The arcade challenge was ASTEROIDS. The high score of the night earned a $20 gift certificate.
- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.
In This Month's NAVA: This month we celebrate the anniversary (can you believe twenty six years already) of Marvel vs. Capcom. There have been a number of great titles in this series, you'll find them all here, for free to play solo - or challenge another attendee at this event!
Arcade Challenge: Before there was Marvel vs Capcom there was 1995's MARVEL SUPER HEROES. Originally released in the arcade on the CPS-2 arcade system (which we have here in the store) and loosely based on "The Infinity Gauntlet" story, we're challenging attendees to solo for a high score today. 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.
6pm Tournament: We broke out our PlayStation 2 so we can all marvel at MARVEL VS CAPCOM 2! In this fast-moving round-robin tournament, who will be the greatest super hero... or Capcom legend? Let's find out. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts after 6pm and its first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament. Winner gets a $20 gift certificate!
Remember, feel free to bring a box or two of your trade goodies. We'll help you administer sales and get you set up somewhere in the store to sell your goods. NAVA is a time for trading! Also, if you have a Digital Press or NAVA t-shirt, wear them for a for an additional 5% discount on our already low-low prices! If you don't have a Digital Press t-shirt, ask us how to buy one while you're here. It's NAVA time, people! GAME ON.
