Wireless Lounge/Tetris DS Tourney Question

Moe FwackyMoe Fwacky Moderator mod
edited August 2006 in PAX Archive
I notice that the wireless lounge is new this year and host to a number of handheld tournaments, including Tetris DS. Are these tournaments only open to those who own the system/game involved or will there be demo units available for use during these tournaments. (I wish to crush people with my mad tetris skills, however lack a DS for which to do so :P )

    It will only be available to those that bring their own system. Good question tho.

    This is why I enjoy reading the PAX forums, threads like this. Asking questions about PAX which I never thought of before.

    I mean, without thinking about it, I always ASSUMED that you'd have to bring your own.

    And if it does turn out that no DS's will be supplied, do you think the tourney administrators will let us try to share amongst our friends?

    So is this where we start taunting one another in order to build up antagonism for the upcoming tetris match?

    I think so.

    Ahem.

    There will come a day where you will no longer be of this earth.

    You're going to go down.

    My foot will come in contact with your buttox at high velocity.

    Previous instances in which I professed to like you were false.

    But seriously, the only time I have lost at tetris was at about 50 rounds at a lan against 4 people rotating in & out against me. Or to my sister, because she plays dirty.

    Its on!

    I have waged war against BigRed, Khoo, and various other people I know from my local lan group and other forums.

    They have all witnessed my power and in doing so, had their souls sucked through the ds screens as their powers were added to my own.

    THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

    333-708-158-890

    (I should probably point out that the chances I'll be taking part in the tournament are extremely slim, just because I have other duties).

    I'll let a small number of people use my Lite for Tetris and Prime Pinball, but no touching my shiny Mario Kart.

    Edit: As for smack talk, I'll claim to be the best in the world at Metroid Pinball, and the Luigi's Mansion track of Mario Kart. That is all.

    Hard mode or regular?


    Also, It sounds like its going to be based on the multiplayer table. How else could we find out who is the best?

    While we're talking about Metroid Prime Pinball...

    I've never played the multi-player against anybody. Is it similar to the practice stuff you can play while you're waiting for other players to join?

    I have to say, i'm thinking of picking up a DS Lite. I was a tad jealous of all the DS action going on last year and it's probably going to be even more insane this year!

    The only sucky thing is that it's not every day this many gamers, and their DS's get together like this. A crying shame... =o)

    I'll have my DS. Looks like I'll need to get Tetris. After going to PAX last year my brother finally understood he made a mistake getting the PSP and now has a DS.

    Without creating a debate over this, which I'm not trying to do, I think there will be a lot more people with PSP's at PAX this year as the PSP has been out for quite a bit longer now. Last year it was still pretty new.

    Either way, I'm tempted to run out and pick up a DS right now... Ugh though, pefectly good money that could be going towards Wii...

    Except for all the penis pictures it was nice to have a pico chat commentary during the different sessions.

    Yeah, ha, I remember that. Yeah, I think I have to go out and buy a DS. I want one waaaay too bad. Even if I'll hardly ever use it. It will just be way too fun to have at PAX.

    All I can say is, whenever I open up PictoChat, if I don't see a barrage of penises, I will be severely disappointed. There should be a dedicated Penis channel.

    Considering how many people had ds's last year (as I've stated before) I'm betting more then 50% of all pax attendants will have a ds. and I'll have to get the new super mario just for the wireless games to play.

    LOL! Hells yeah! =oP I would be careful what you wish, it may just come true....

    Be careful, if some conservatives hear about this they'll probably try and sue Nintendo for their hardware being capable of explicit entertainment. Hot Pax maybe??? ut oh...

    Wow, the abcd theory is genius. What did our youth do before the construct of Picto Chat and all its glory? X)

    So, who challenges me to a Picto Chat Tic Tac Toe tournament. If it sweetens the pot one of us can use boobs and the other penis...

    Can we get it on in about 30-45 minutes? I'm technically at work and I technically shouldn't be using the company network for wifi.

    Push is the real test of who is better then who. I *HOPE* its not standard. The way the computer places the junk underneath is pretty lame imho.
