Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
If any of you follow our twitter @HandHeldLounges, you already know most of the haps! BUT, now that we have the final details from Nintendo, all of the tourney info can be posted
First things first, look at the shiny: http://east.paxsite.com/schedule/category/hh
NOTE: All tourney sign-ups begin Friday as soon as the doors are open. Unless otherwise state, the cap is 64 total participants for each game. We are using the 2 first round system again (sign up for one, not both).
Secondly, rule mongering:
Tetris DS and Mario Kart DS - SAME AS IT EVER WAS - But really, most of you know the score. For those uninitiated, the rules will be posted on site, and you can ask here if need be.
Mario Kart 7 - Folks will be using their own Ghost Data. We will have a few to-borrow copies, and we'll do our best to get them up to speed by the tournament.
Kid Icarus: Uprising - Teams will be put together to play rounds of Light vs Dark BUT the highest score moves on, not the winning team. Assuming 72 participants, 12 will move on to the final round where everyone will play 3 rounds of Light vs Dark in random match ups. Those 3 scores will be added up to determine the overall tourney winner!
• Libra Sponge
• Pisces Heal
• Trade Off
• Magnus Club
Your friendly neighborhood HH Enforcers and Nintendo staff will be on hand to make sure everyone's power and weapons list is kosher.
As always, we're super excited to see old and new attendees alike and hope everyone else is pumped for some good times!
P.S. The skittle fairy may make a comeback. >_>
