Video games and ponies III (Mira Mesa, San Diego)

(larger 15 attendee-limit this time)

We are old video game collectors and would like to have a pony and video game party with you! We live in the Mira Mesa area near the Target and Von's stores. Our systems include Intellivision, NES, N64, PS2, Wii, and more! Some systems have more games than others, so let us know if you'd like to bring your own to play.

We're in a 2-bedroom apartment, so space is limited, but we have a decent projector setup for about 10 people to enjoy.

Sorry for the wall of text below. I'm trying to summarize the comments from the first event so we don't have to re-type things each time we have this kind of party.

We hope to see you there!

**Food**
We'd love to do a potluck-style thing :) Comment below if you can bring chips/soda/snacks/etc, but don't feel bad if you can't think of something.
No alcohol please - there may be teens present, and Logic/Heart Felt don't like the stuff.

**Games**
If you would like to bring games for a system, see our full system list below. Of course, you can bring your own system if you want.
Please label your games so they don't get mixed up with other people's games.

Note: Please no M-Rated games... we like to keep things SFW / family friendly.

**RSVPs**
Since we have a limit on attendees - if you finds out you can't come (which would be sad), please update your rsvp so someone else can come instead. Thanks!

    As is tradition, something was forgotten. This time it was my iPod. What day would be good to pick it up?

    Darn it! Our ride's car battery did not working, it's still trying to see if he can find a way to get it to work again to pick me and my friend up still. If anyone else can give us a ride, reply right away! Please help!

      Which park is it? Can you give me an address?

      October 19, 2013

  • Alex L.

    Looks like I won't be able to make this one but I'll be looking forward to the next. Feel free to have my Sega Saturn available for play though. Till "VGAP IV".

    Are we still doing the Minecraft Speed Run/games?

    October 18, 2013

    • Sheer S.

      Any 'speedrun' is possible as long as you specify a goal. While some games have an obvious ending, some require runners to set a mutual goal.

      October 18, 2013

    • Logic G.

      Silly people - Minecraft has an end... it's even called 'The End' :P

    Can someone give me and my friend fabian a ride to the meetup???? we seroiusly need one since all my possible rides are already full. Please contact me ASAP. thank you.

  • Phillip J.

    I swear I'm going to make it to one of these!!! Between work and the 2 hour bus ride I'm finding it hard though. How often do these happen again?

    October 16, 2013

    • Sheer S.

      The last one was 3 weeks prior, and the first one was two weeks before that. So every 2-3 weeks sounds like a safe guess.

      October 16, 2013

    • Phillip J.

      Awesome! Too bad we're full this time around.

      October 18, 2013

  • Casey S.

    Do you have extra PS3 controllers?

    October 17, 2013

  • Logic G.

    A reminder: if you find out you can't come, please un-rsvp so someone else can come

  • Chaos2012

    So I can bring soda to this meet up. We have everything else picked out?

    Ooh, we have an Xbox coming? I wanted to try those songs you said you have. Hahaha

    October 17, 2013

    • Chaos2012

      Oh if you are bringing one? Because if you can't I have one. I also have extra controllers if needed for it. I also have games like cod mw 1-3 for games and naruto ultimate ninja storm 3, although that is only two players. Could do a tournament with that game

      October 17, 2013

    • Logic G.

      We'd rather keep games at these below M rating if possible...

      October 17, 2013

      Yes, I'll be bringing an Xbox 360. I already have 3 controllers. Unless someone wants to bring a 4-player game, we won't even need the third one. Also, I'm bringing a USB microphone if more than one person wants to sing. One more microphone and we'll be at maximum capacity for Rock Band.

    The boss is keeping me constantly busy this week between the restaurant and the recording studio we're setting up. May have to cancel if I become overloaded.

    October 16, 2013

    • Logic G.

      Good luck - let us know

      October 17, 2013

  • Sheer S.

    I'll just leave these here.

    I trust you all not to cheat multiple votes in. You can have other people vote, if you'd like. I'll be using the custom portal gun (and portal colors) during the speedrun.

    • Cosmo B.

      Rarity!

    • Sheer S.

      I've decided to close off voting tomorrow (the 12th) at noon (or whenever I remember to check it). Make sure to get your last-minute votes in!

    I can bring soda

    Applejack's (my Laptop) already set somewhat to do video out but needs either a monitor or an HDMI connector. That said I know there's a few games out there and also modded games featuring ponies. Just have to find them or tell me which I could look into so I can test it out.

    October 1, 2013

    • Logic G.

      The projector can do hdmi or vga (computer monitor)

      October 1, 2013

  • Casey S.

    I can bring Skullgirls.

    2 · October 1, 2013

  • Sheer S.

    My speedrun this time around will probably be Portal "Out of Bounds", which will be different yet similar to the "Inbounds" run that I only got to show a few of you last time. Also, two words: corn dogs.

    1 · September 30, 2013

  • Brown W.

    I'll bring pizza again.

    2 · September 29, 2013

    • Logic G.

      Thanks for helping out so often :)

      September 30, 2013

    • Brown W.

      It's the least I can do! :3

      September 30, 2013

  • James D.

    I can bring my PS3 and a few fighting games if anyone is interested.
