See this post, here? This post is detailed. The suggestion is feasible and awesome. Strive to imitate this post.

What have we learned? That one line and a 'lol' is not a pitch. :mrgreen:

Some good ideas here - a few are being seriously considered. Keep 'em coming, everyone!
"It's a boot," says Cheryl, "in space."
The robot lions charge together. They form a giant robot. This is the glorious stock footage that is Voltron.
Vladimir rubs at his chin. There is the sparkling in his mind again. "We should add lasers."
"Heat-seeking lasers!"
"They laughed at us in engineering class," says Vladimir. "But now the engineering department is in ruins - we may build as we see fit."
Thunder crashes all around them.

Yeah, good idea sleet, although i think that that is kinda what these forums are for really. I often try to start new debates or questions like this, although it often blows up into a flame war because im misinterpreted (eg threads about FF or halo haha). Also I'm a mook but yah, it might be a good idea to allow people to know the execs a bit better, i think the only people from this club that i have seen/know who they actually are are CodeMonkey, Elmin and Sophismata; and while im only new i guess it shows that most new peoples might not know the execs.

As an aside, i think that the club should make it more obvious that this forum exists like a sign or something at friday consoles (im really hoping there isnt a big sign with the forum address on it or else i look stupid...). The only reason i found out about this forum was because a friend (who isnt in the club but who is involved with the Smash anime/game festival) showed me it, otherwise i probably wouldnt even know this existed (and you would all no doubt be happier for it haha).

Chilli, in regards to chicken sumo wrestling suits.....that has nothing to do with electronic gaming really, but it is a freaken AWESOME idea anyway! make it so number 1.

Finally, in regards to the smash bros, halo, rock band etc. tournies; it might be an idea to see if some of our members could help out at the Smash anime/gaming festival thingo (which i know some of you have in the past). I havnt been to one, but i know they hold game tournaments (smash bros, dance dance revolution and a few others), if some of you helped out im sure you could give out some brochures/friendly advice about EGG and any of the gaming tournaments that you might organise. If your interested i can give you an email of my friend who is part of the organisation of the festival (not entirely sure if he still needs help, but im sure he wont turn it down).

There's some drama and history involved with that that's best left unsaid here.

I'm confused about this... event?


i meant to suggest that as an added twist, we could get an inflatable castle or something along those lines, like the sumo costumes (i just happened to find one set that look like chicken suits)

Uh, no. It doesnt belong there.

Besides there wasn't any big drama, or maybe I just missed it entirely -.-

It was a little drama at SMASH from what I heard. Also, I was also referring to other times EGG has done things like conventions.

I know I kind of fall in and out of the club every year and hardly come to any events...*ahem*, but still, taking my cue from Sleet:

Retro Gaming Day

Summary
Weekly/monthly etc playing of retro games (Eg NES, SNES, MD, MS, Game Boy, AES, PC Engine, C64, Atari, Pong, Altair etc...)

Pros:
- Easy to run and set up
- I'm sure people have an abundance of old gaming stuff (If not then I definitely do)
- Could be tacked on to concourse consoles
- Can spark competition through high scores (When was the last time you played a game with a score?) and speed runs
- Plenty of instances of 'Aww, I remember that game!' are sure to be had
- Goldeneye, fucking Goldeneye guys...

Cons:
- Blowing into cartridges
- Tuning in RF units
- Loading times
- Lack of interest?

Brief:
I'm a retro games nuts, I have about 40 different consoles and 3 arcade machines. I love collecting although it's a bit sad that I have no-one to play with and the collection simply collects dust a result. I still play my C64 to this day though and think how awesome it'd be if I had someone else to play with. I'm not sure how many other people feel the same way, the oldest game I've ever seen played at egg has been DOTA :P

I think it'd also be a good hook for ex-gamers. A lot of casual gamers wouldn't be able to recognise the latest Jap Spec fighter or RTS, but I'm sure a lot of them connect with all the old 90s games that a lot of people grew up with whether they were gaming nuts or not.

Anyways, even if the idea doesn't get taken up, it'd be nice to know that I wasn't insane and a few people at least share my passion :D
I'm fairly sure if they took porn off the internet, there'd only be one website left and it'd be called "BRING BACK THE PORN"

I'd be for a retro games day. As an added bonus, I have a SNES that can be loaned into the lineup if needed :)

I have an Atari 2600 or something which has an Indiana Jones game! And some dragon raising game that looks suspiciously like Kunama's dragon egg signature.

I tried so hard to turn my daughter into an obese hooker and then marry her. After a while she just stops getting bigger no matter what you do.

Quick question to Execs: Are we still having EGG comps every now and again this year (held during Consoles) with small prizes and possible entry funds going somewhere useful?

It's possible since there was a fair bit of interest on Oday. We are focused atm on getting some new games and equipment but once thats all sorted we can probably start looking at comps etc. If you have any ideas on the best way for them to run please post them ^^

Tbh though, there's always a fair amount of interest in pretty much anything at O-days. I'd probably gauge interest in a few weeks from now.
