Open Gaming of Tournaments!

  • Hello all! I am holding an open gaming meetup at my place, and have decided to make it Tournament Themed! The three games will be:

    1. Project M
    2. Mario Kart Wii
    3. Halo: Combat Evolved

    I have decided for people to make votes/suggestions for what they would like for each category in the comments section.

    As for my place, I have a HDTV in the living room, and a spare second bedroom that is empty where another TV can be put. I figure we can have free play of any game there in case no one decides to be in the tournament or wants to play something else. I have been able to have as many as three TV's at my place; 2 in the living room and one in the spare bedroom. 4 may be even possible.

    Systems: I have a PS3, a Wii U, and a Wii. Two controllers for the PS3, Three Wiimotes with Two Nunchucks and a Classic Controller, Two Gamecube Controllers, and a Wii U Gamepad with a Wii U Classic Controller Pro. As for food, I will be getting pizza. For anyone that comes, please bring $5 for to cover food/drinks.

    Parking is not an issue at all, for there is parking alongside the curb, and if there isn't, there is guest parking in the back. If you are coming from the city but don't have a car, there is a Metra that goes from Ogilvie Transportation Center, but if that doesn't work, you can always carpool :)

    Also, if you are not coming on Saturday, please change your RSVP to "not attending" no later than 2 PM to let me know so I can get an accurate headcount for pizza/soda.

    In the meantime, leave your suggestions for the tournament and ask any questions you may have in the comments!

    I'm quite disappointed that Meetup sends you notices when people comment, when you RSVP, etc., but something as important as an event cancellation provides NO notification whatsoever. Really shouldn't be this way for a paid site.

    I have a suggestion about the location can it be in the Des Plaines Library? Renting a room in the Library.

    is it just project M or is it both project M and brawl?

    My pic would be a fighting game. Either way, it's good to know there will also be open gaming.

    Definitely fps possibly halo or something. I have 2 xbox 360s and a computer monitor I could bring for system link

  • Robert H.

    Would multiplayer modes for games like Batman: Arkham Origins, or Assassins creed be okay for tournament purposes or do those not count because it's online?

    February 11, 2014

  • Rahul

    Hey - Maybe Super Smash Bros on Game Cube? I could bring additional controllers/the game, if needed.
