Game Core is approaching on the 12th. If you’re in the area (Oaks, PA) you should definitely head down and check it out!
NOTE: Oaks not Redding like I previously mentioned.
Game Core is just that, the Core of gaming. While we see the differences between people who play video games, Arcade games, role-playing games, miniature games, and others, we don’t see it as a reason to keep them all separate. Game Core gathers the best of all types of gaming, and provides you the vendors, contests, tournaments, guests, and players you’re looking to find. Whether you’re hoping to see The Angry Video Game Nerd, or a Guitar Hero Tournament, or a Magic The Gathering Tournament, you can find them at Game Core!
There’s some cool stuff happing there.
Including, a new Atari 2600 release:
We are proud to announce that one of our sponsors Good Deal Games will be releasing a brand new Atari 2600 game, Shield Shifter at Game Core. Although they cannot make the show a package of cartridges numbered 1-50 are on there way to Game Core Headquarters as I type this. We are also excited to announce #1 will be given away at Game Core as a door prize to a lucky attendee.
Here is a little bit about the game from the Good Deal Games website:
Shoot your way through the Alien shifting shields to give yourself a clean shot at the attacking Alien Queen. The Alien Queen shoots lasers and drops sticky bombs. Sticky Bombs will block your ships path for a few moments. The spaceship moves closer to the shield each time 10 alien Queens are destroyed. Play against the computer or duel against a friend in the 2-player Battle Mode.
