A great event, thanks to the staff and David Horvath for helping make this all happen. WAGE! was played. If you didn’t make it, you missed out on great prizes. The chances of winning were high! Some even won twice. Behind the scenes, was a lot of preparation to make an event come off simple. We’re glad to do it every time.
Excuse the quality and the ad that shows up from Ustream. (it’s recorded from our live stream of the event). That’s Franny Choi, Traci Akemi Kato Kiriyama, Ed Lin, and Chiwon Choi in the “Monsters of Reading” photo.Continue reading
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Game Night 7 at Giant Robot 2 Game Night 7 – Polytron Games: Fez and superHYPERCUBE, Nintendo 3DS StreetPass Saturday, December 3 2011, 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Giant Robot 2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd.Los Angeles, CA 90025 gr2.net (310) 445-9276 In conjunction with the Attract Mode, Meat Bun apparel, and Angry Bananas, Giant Robot is proud to host Game Night 7, an event that takes place at GR2 about every two months. For this seventh installment, we are featuring two games by Polytron, Fez and superHYPERCUBE. Both games appeared at Indiecade in Los Angeles and turned heads and as well as provided top notch entertainment. Fez is a well designed scrolling type of game. You’re a character moving around an atmosphere that’s artistic and cute and the entire environment actually shifts as you make turns. It’s an instant classic. superHYPERCUBE developed also with Kokoromi, is a game requiring 3d glasses and runs of a Xbox 360 Kinect. It takes motion and depth perception and is an insane feat using the technology of today’s games. Both games provide very separate experiences and is guaranteed to amaze. Nintendo 3DS StreetPass: Meetup Everywhere is a simple-to-use online platform that enables an organization’s fans or followers to coordinate local, real-life meetups based on shared interests.
