Guitar Hero, DDR, Super Smash Bros. and More: It's a tournament weekend!
Yeah, sure, so it's supposed to be beautiful this weekend; sunny, mid-70's, all that crap. All the more reason to sequester yourself in a library basement and play videogames all weekend, right?
That's right, it's our last off-season tournament weekend, and we've got an awesome lineup of events planned that's got something for everyone in the cool recesses of the basement of the Downtown Library. First, on Friday night, 6/29, from 6:00 - 8:45, we'll have a cool combo event as we host simultaneous all-ages tournaments in Guitar Hero II and Pikmin 2, with separate prizes for the winners of each. Enter one or both competitions, and rock out while you attempt to out-marshal your opponents with your legions of Pikmin in one of the GameCube's most underappreciated battle modes.
Then, on Saturday, 6/30, from Noon - 5 ish, we'll have a mammoth Super Smash Bros. Melee Regulation Throwdown, including multiple pools, no items, neutral stages only, optional advanced slobs, and hopefully a team event if time allows (which it probably will). This is your last chance to prove your itemless superiority and size up potential clan members before the preseason event July 21, and with many of our heavy hitters likely to be attending a tournament in Midland, there will likely be a power vacuum that could shake things up.
Finally, on Sunday, 7/1, from 1 - 4, we'll have an all-ages DDR tournament including a prize for the best adult/kid team , so grab a reluctant adult and strong-arm them into humiliating themselves in front of a crowd for a shot at some extra dough.
Then, next week, we'll be shooting interviews for our upcoming GT documentary at the CTN studio on main street, so anyone who's interested in participating in that can email me at eli at aadl.org to get on the shooting schedule. Pairs / siblings / entire clans are encouraged to interview together, so get a group together and come experience the star treatment in front of the blue screen.
That's it for now guys... stay tuned for levels, xp, and ratings, we're working on them now and you're gonna love them.
