Video Games Lounge
Everyone's certainly familiar with the electronic entertainment that almost everyone likes to spend at least a little time with these days. We've got stations lined up with the latest technology for those of you who've yet to try it out.
And, of course, how fun would a games room be without a little bit of competition? Several tournaments will be drafted up in your favourite games, where you'll go against all comers for pride and prizes. We'll be running the gamut of genres so that no matter what you're into, there'll be something you're good enough at to have a chance to aim for the top. If you like fighting games, there's a multitude of choices for you ranging from Blaz Blue to Smash Brothers. Music's more your thing? Show off your crazy legwork in Dance Dance Revolution, or if you're more of a sit-down-and-relax kind of person, perhaps Super Mario Bros is for you.
The Gamer’s Lounge has levelled up; with more room for more consoles and people! Toss in some extra comfy couches and you have the best space to kick back and challenge your friends to the latest or retro gaming system.
We will be hosting two tournaments this year, Mario Kart 8 at 1:30pm and Dragonball Xenoverse 2 at 7:30pm. In between tournament action Super Smash Brothers for Wii U will be on free play on the big screen.
Tournament sign up will take place in the Gamer's Lounge on the day of Winterfest. Spots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. Each tournament has 32 spots max and sign up will close 15 minutes before the start of the tournament.
Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 tournament will be held in the Lounge at 1:30pm
Mario Kart 8 is returning for a victory lap! Our first tournament of the day will be all the zany Mario Kart action you love, play as your favourite Mario characters, like Mario, Yoshi, Peach, or Bowser, and many more. 4 Players will race on two tracks at 150cc, after which the top two players will advance to the next round.
Dragonball Xenoverse 2
Dragonball Xenoverse 2 will be held in the Lounge at 7:30pm
Dragonball Xenoverse 2 is coming to Winterfest! Dragonball Xenoverse 2 will be a 1-on-1 tournament where each player will choose 1 Character each from a selection of the most well known Dragonball characters, from early DBZ Villains like Raditz, Nappa, Frieza, Cell, Buu, to more iconic heroes like Goku, Gohan, Krillin and more! Then the players will compete in a best of 3 in an Offline Battle, where the winner advances and the loser will be eliminated. There is 3 minute time limit, if no players are defeated within 3 minutes, the player who lost the most health will be assigned a loss.
