Video Gaming
Overview

Chomping bits and smashing pixels! We've got your video gaming needs covered. No quarters needed here; we have infinite possibilities! Come check out our arcade cabinets, or duke it out with your friends over a game of Smash Bros. Retro more your style? We will have games for NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, and more! Come play!
 

Into VR? The Oculus Rift is planned to be available again this year, this time set up exclusively in the console room for casual play. We plan for this to be available tentatively Friday and primarily through Saturday. Beat Saber will be the main focus, but more casual gaming such as Space Pirates, Fruit Ninja, and Job Simulator will also be available.

Gaming Tournaments

There will be two tournaments this year:
 

On Friday night, we will be holding a Mod Nation Racers track construction event. All are welcome to come and help us build up to 4 tracks and some racers to be used on Sunday afternoon in a follow-up tournament!
 

Our fighting tournament this year will be Smash Brothers: Ultimate (Nintendo Switch) on Saturday! The aim is to hold at least a full 32-player bracket with tournament rules enabled in-game. We would like to do this in a 4-round Swiss format. Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to bring their own consoles to help us expand the tournament as participation allows. Our inventory system is stringent and we will make sure all attendee-lent equipment is fully accounted for from the time it’s brought in, to the time it leaves con space.
 

Q: What’s “Swiss” tournament format?
A: In a Swiss-system tournament, players are never eliminated. Instead, players are paired in every round. The number of rounds is predetermined, and the winner is the player who earns the most points by the end of the tournament.
