We are Heading to VGU Gamer Gauntlet
So, funny story where my friend from Elite Girl Gamers Dr. Nikki came out of nowhere and asked if I would like to go on a cruise with the team. Now Kuma has never been on a cruise before and this will be an interesting experience, but here is the kicker. It is a Video Game cruise which is like a fantasy come true. The good thing is there is a video showing off what to expect on this Gaming voyage to the Bahama’s and back.
I think it is about time some of us went on a voyage, but one themed to be a gaming expeirence on the sea? Now, keep in mind that it is not just video games it is spring break and I have never been on such a vacation experience. Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas is such a mouthful, but here is what we have in store to expect.
The Gaming Side:
- Call of Duty Immersion Room: Full immersion gaming like you’ve never experienced before. The Call of Duty room will put you in an actual war zone. With the ceiling to floor screen the live smoke, flash explosions, smells of gunpowder and even burning flesh this experience will leave you speechless.
- Forza Race Room: There will also be a Forza race room. The room will feature 10 racers going head to head. With the wind from racing in their face, the smells of gasoline and burning rubber they will race to the winners circle where they will crowned Gamer Gauntlet champ and collect their prize.
- Metronomicon: Packing in a fully-fledged story mode, The Metronomicon sees you take control a party of eight to wage musical warfare against a multitude of dance-mongering fiends. By switching between four concurrent hero-controlled tracks on-the-fly, you’ll select and activate a wide array of abilities and spells, buffs and nukes, with your performance and timing all-important in ensuring the effectiveness of your moves. In the RPG spirit, you’ll need to improve your characters’ stats, hunt down powerful equipment, and combine a multitude of newly-learned abilities – switching between tanking, healing, buffing, and damage-dealing classes as required in real time.
