From the discussion with the enforcers last year, it sounded like that was going to be the final year for the Saturn Bomberman tournament. This deeply saddens me, as that's really about half the reason I go to PAX
. I really love Bomberman. So much that I released Splody for Steam and PS4 back when there were no alternative available. Anyway, I looked around, and could find no information about how games were chosen for tournaments at PAX, and I'd like to propose a Splody tournament! Since I'll be attending, can be a "play with the devs" tournament, though just a regular one would be great too, so that, for the 6th time, I can come in second place and fail to win a "Bomberman" tournament again =).
This could work as a "PC" or "Console" tourney, though the PS4 version is limited to 4 players due to platform limitations, so PC (1 PC with 8 PS4 or 360 controllers) would be preferable. I'd probably suggest a similar format to the previous Saturn Bomberman tourney - ~8 people per match for eliminations, no revenge/ghost bombers - but it would also be incredibly fun for the elimination rounds to be a single 20-30 person match if we have a projector screen big enough =). If there's any serious interest in this (even as a post-tournament wrap-up game or something), I could provide ~20 wireless controllers to make it happen.
If the Saturn Bomberman tourney was *not* canned, then you may safely ignore this message, it satisfies the same need =).
