We have been doing a videogame night with , the computer gaming club at UCF, since 2009. It is a fairly new tradition, and we have been working the kinks out, but working with GameStop and LANKnights has been nothing but a pleasure. This is an event we do every semester, and in fall 2011, we are doing it in the Pegasus Ballroom for the first time.
To celebrate having a huge venue, we are planning on having bigger events such as a videogame decathalon, which GameStop will have a big part in, and on-stage set ups for Rock Band and Dance Central.
The main event this time around will be a Video Game Decathalon, hosted by GameStop and Anime Spot. The decathalon will consist of 9 levels of games from different genres across different systems. We have not released the list of games so the event will be wholly based on skill.
**Sign-ups for the decathalon will be from 12 (noon) until whenever it fills up. We will have 30 spaces for the decathalon.
To participate in the decathalon, you must be in the room from when you sign up to 1 p.m. so we can explain the rules, then when your name is called. How long the event lasts depends on how many people sign up.
There will be smaller tournaments for the following games:
Super Smash Brothers Brawl – 3 p.m.
Pokemon BW – 5 p.m.
Blazblue – 8 p.m.
Rock Band 3 – 10 p.m.
We will also have fun games such as Gears of War 3, Taiko Drum Master and DDR for free play.
