[Event] Revival Mini 2013 (Warwickshire, 7th & 8th December)

Revival-Mini-2013-EventRevival Mini 2013 is a limited ticket event being held on the 7th & 8th of December and is promising the following gaming goodness: 25 arcade machines, 50+ retro gaming systems, a plethora of pinball, and of course, the RetroCollect Squad!

With this possibly being the last gaming event of the year, RetroCollect has geared up to finish of 2013 in style. With a handful of the team in attendance, we're set to host several gaming competitions in our usual fashion along with plenty of prizes to be won. But enough talk, here's what we'll be hosting in early December:

RetroCollect's Revival Mini Competitions

Saturday AM

  • California Games: "Surfs Up Challenge" - Who can ride the waves like a true champion?
  • F-Zero GX: "Captain Falcon's whiplash" - Prepare for motion sickness and getting head spun in a twisted all out F-Zero GX time trial.
  • Dead Or Alive 3: "DOA3 Double D (Deadly Double) Challenge" - Two competitions for the price of one! "Knockout Hits" based on your straight up Survival K.O. total! In addition we'll be kicking off a "On Point Collectathon Master" high score challenge, where by you can boost your score by picking up the various items dropped whilst fighting your way through the Survival Knockout.

Saturday PM

  • Sonic 2: "Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Hill Top Zone Time Attack" - The blue hedgehog is back for more spin dash madness!
  • Super Mario Kart Super Circuit: "Mario Kāto Adobansu TT" - The timeless Game Boy Advance racer on the big screen - but stay calm and collected as we take you round Bowser's Castle 4. We accept no responsibility for loss of hair with this challenge, but we do expect the greatest amongst you to navigate the fire and brimstone, to top the leaderboard?
  • Psyvariar 2: "Bullet Hell-vival" - The Will to Fabricate, lets see you buzzing to this one!

Sunday AM

  • Virtua Racing: "Lostruin's Sunday Driving" - Probably not the best idea after a Saturday night as it is, but there will be no room for Sunday drivers here! Only the fast & furious need apply...
  • Super Monkey Ball: "Monkey Target Renagades" - The Wheel Of Danger is ON! Lets see you go banana's, just don't FALL OUT!
  • Burnout Revenge: "Lets Crash Out? Its Sunday" - Virtually crashing for Cash never felt so good, so showcase your skills in the driver's seat and put your foot down!
