Intervention 2013 will have our most extensive Video Gaming area ever. The newest games, and the best cooperative experiences available will all be set up and ready to for you to jump right in. If you like the newest stuff then chop up some fruit with Kinect or show your dance or singing skills; and those of you into retro can play our library of Commodore 64 games alongside your friends on the NES.
There will be at least:
* 6 xbox360s
* 1 Wii
* Sega Genesis
* Commodore 64
Also RockBand and Kinect set ups.
1 360 will be focused on Kids Games (arcade and such)
We are also happy to have yyrGames demoing some of their Xbox Live games in our video room this year:
Aaron Teplitsky develops arcade-style action-packed games for Xbox LIVE In- die Games (and hopefully for other platforms, in the future). The definition of “indie games” is often cloudy, because they come from teams in all different shapes and sizes. yyrGames is as “indie” as it gets, because it’s just one person doing it all. The graphics aren’t great, but you’ll have fun… guaranteed!
This year’s Room Layout:
ROCKBAND “Band” Tournament
Sign up to be in a Band in our RockBand “Band” Tournament. Two Tournaments. one Friday and one Saturday. This is a day long event. Sign up as a Band of any size (max 4) and record your score. Play on any level, any song, show your chops. Do you have what it takes, give it a shot.
Players can be in any number of bands, but can only win once. If you win Friday, you cannot be in a participating band Saturday, sorry. A minimum number of four (4) bands needs to participate to be judged. If there is less than four, both days will be combined into one and the prize doubled.
