Call for Video Games and Equipment.. and People!
Thanks, I noticed after I posted the reply yesterday night/this morning I really have to stop posting after 10/11PM, I get a little tired and tend to go stupid at that point
I am working on getting more games, but I can't guarantee any more than I have listed here.
EDIT: I forgot to ask 2 questions.
1. When I arrive between 9 and 10:30 AM on Thursday (June 24th), do I need to get the form before I drop off my stuff, or do I just drop it off and then start counting for the time that I volunteer for watching the room?
I ask because I notice that you said that you'd like a few people to hang around to make sure the stuff works.
2.Are you the one that I have to have sign my volunteer time sheet?
I can bring all those games, no problem.
^_^ Np. We'll see about having a few volunteer sheets available on Thursday, but I'm assuming the con would like you to register your volunteer-ness with them before starting to actually volunteer. And yes, one of us VG staff people would be signing off on the time. As of now, myself, turtyl and Omnibahumut are the appropriate individuals.
but I'm assuming the con would like you to register your volunteer-ness with them before starting to actually volunteer.
Yes, please. You can come to ConOps and get a volunteer sheet and ribbon there.
Ok, I made a note of it to come before I drop everything off.
I could bring my Wii controller (which is black and has the sensor at the bottom) and the nunchuk.
Seeing that the only multiplayer game i own right now is Super Street Fighter 4, i could bring that. Own it for both 360 and PS3. If there's gonna be a tournament for it, i'll bring a system, game, and arcade sticks (plus a normal gamepad or two).
Speaking of a SF tourney, if there is one and help is needed running/organizing it, i can help out. Got a bit of tourney experience with fighters. ^.=.^
We are relatively short on PS3s still; bringing that system and any controllers would be great! ^_^ There isn't a SF4 tourney scheduled at the moment. Give a bit of thought to how you'd want things set up and shoot me a PM here if you'd still like to run one. The deadline for events is currently May 15th.
Do you guys need games for the xbox 360 at all? I could bring quite a few with me to the convention. Also is any one bringing a N64?
Games are always welcome, and I don't think anyone's bringing an N64 yet. We thought about bringing ours, but the only con/party-type game we have is Mario Kart and we'll have that on the Wii. Feel free to bring it if you'd like.
Any particular games you are looking for the xbox 360 or should I just bring as many as I possible can?
Since I don't have one, I don't know too well what's available. However, games that are multiplayer and/or can have fairly quick turnarounds (ie. round-based play or fighting/fps games) are probably better than longer-running single player games.
Does anyone more xbox-y have suggestions?
How about Combat on Atari 2600? Ok, Air Sea Battle? Berzerk? Donkey Kong? ok, Pac-Man? Anyone?
Reminds me of the Capsule a few years ago. It wasn't a legit 2600, but one of those multiple-game-encompassing systems. Went well with the ambient/downtempo.
I remember that, played some kind of up-scaled combat one it.
Been giving this alot of thought.
The game rooms have been severely lacking in recent years, for the world's largest furry con, i think this needs to change.
I have decided to bring a little over $3000 of equipment to the con. This will includes several game systems, fight sticks, a 42" plasma(panasonic 42px14), two 32" LCDs(panasonic l32x1), and a 26" lcd (ASUS EVO). These are all models i have chosen specifically due to having essentially zero input lag, so they're great for games. I may also be bringing some speakers and a subwoofer so you rock banders can have some decent sound this year. I'll also bring a few fans and a sams club size thing of hand sanitizer and wipes (lots of exchanging of controllers, cant be too careful!)
I'm taking a HUGE risk by doing this, but I really want to contribute something major this year.
I would also like to volunteer setup and to help out in the game room, heck im bringing so much, just setting up is going to be a chore in itself!!!
Awesome! But I agree that you are taking a BIG risk. You could damage any of your stuff on the way there. It could get stolen some how, but I really doubt that the Dorsai could over look someone carrying out a TV or something. But it seems like a really cool idea! Just remember to lift with your legs not your back.
Wow, that's quite the list. Lets talk offline, k?
Is there still a need for game consoles and rock band controllers?
Just wondering if you still need a few extras.
I'd say if you're up for bringing the controller, it'd be appreciated. Who knows when one of them might break down (naturally or due to misuse), and there's a good chance that since I'm bringing all of my Rock Band equipment for the tournament, it'd be mine.
I can probably bring Gamecube controllers for the Wii. If I remember right, the Wii accepts Gamecube controllers.
ill be bring my ps3 to the con, it will be avalable to yall if ya need it, just let me know, ill even bring a hdmi cable along with the av plugin to, plus one controller
ill have my ps3 avalable with 1 controller, and games like metal gear solid 4, need for speed pro street and shift
Thanks again to everyone who's volunteered modern and 'stone-age' equipment!
As you all may-or-may-not have noticed in the schedule, we will open the room at 7-9:30pm on Thursday for people to bring in donated equipment/games and test their consoles with the TVs if needed. If you know your badge number we'll mark all your equipment with it (on little removable stickers) so you can be sure to get all of it back at the end of the con.
Please note that only people donating equipment for use during the con will be allowed access to the video game room at this time. Those furs bringing consoles may conduct short power/video tests only. We have to close the room promptly at 9:30 (and preferably a little earlier) to attend a pre-con staff meeting.
Thanks again, everyone!
