- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.


In This Month's NAVA: Born in 1987, MEGA MAN (ROCKMAN in Japan) has been blasting, leaping, and targeting bosses across many generations and on many different platforms. This month's event will be dedicated to "the blue bomber" with systems set up around the store featuring this intrepid robotic hero!


Arcade Challenge: Released in Japan arcades in 1995, MEGA MAN: THE POWER BATTLE presents a different kind of Mega Man experience. Instead of platforming all the way to face off against the stage boss, POWER BATTLE puts you head to head with stage bosses and ONLY stage bosses. 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're going to try something a little different. Though players will go head to head, they'll actually be on separate systems attempting to score the most points on the same stage. The game tonight will be Mega Man 2 (NES). Who will rush through the levels with the highest scores? 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! Let us all GAME ON.
