EVAC 21/03/2014 – Puyo Puyo Tetris

Posted by Alethea Lim On March - 20 - 2014Comments Off

After much anxious waiting our copy of Puyo Puyo Tetris has arrived – so we’re very excited to make it Game of the Week this week!

We also created a Facebook Group that you can join to stay updated on club activities and contribute to discussion. We actually do still check the forums regularly also, despite its barrenness, so if you’re not a Facebook person don’t be afraid to post something over there.

The Extremely Versatile Adventurer Challenge

Posted by Alethea Lim On February - 24 - 2014Comments Off

Every week from O’Week 2014 until AVCon, EVAC will offer members the chance to earn points in its inaugural Extremely Versatile Adventurer Challenge. At each meeting we’ll announce activities and challenges that will earn you points. Will the points actually do anything? Probably not! But you can brag about them.

We’re going to try and keep up a new Game of the Week every week until AVCon. Depending on how it goes, we may be able to extend it all the way through to the end of the year. If you’d like to suggest a title or bring along a game to share then you can discuss it on the forums or at one of our meetings.

For our first Game of the Week we’ll have Mario Kart 64 – Battle Mode! We’ll run a free-for-all tournament on the N64. People that challenge our Gym Leaders at Pokemon X and Y during O’Week will also be able to get points. We hope to see you for a new year of gaming!

PS: If you can think of a better videogame-y word than “Adventurer” for the acronym, you may well be rewarded with some points!

EVAC in 2014!

Posted by Alethea Lim On February - 10 - 2014Comments Off

Long time no post… but here’s some news for EVAC in 2014!

First off – the Pulp Fiction Comics discount. We’re trying something different this year – present your membership card at Pulp Fiction when buying any three comics, manga or graphic novels to receive a fourth title for FREE! This works out to be our best discount deal yet.

Pulp Fiction Comics has been a long time supporter of EVAC and you should give them a visit some time at 34a King William St, Adelaide.

EVAC membership will lapse during O’Week, during which you’ll need to pay to renew your membership ($5 for uni students, $10 for non-students). Membership is not required to attend EVAC meetings but does entitle you to the Pulp Fiction discount, the ability to influence the direction of EVAC via votes at our General Meetings and the ability to run for committee positions. When the club saves up enough cash, we can buy new games!

You can register for EVAC at O’Week or at any of our Friday meetings. During O’Week we will be on the Maths Lawns during Tuesday the 25th. If you own Pokemon X or Y you may even be able to challenge our gym leaders!

We hope to see you in 2014 for another exciting year of gaming!

EVAC is back for 2013!

Hi All, hope you’ve had a great summer break!

We had an awesome showing of new and old people at last week’s meeting, and as we continue on during the year we hope to see that kind of activity continue. Today (The 8th of March) we’ll be on in the CA Common Room. It’s in the Lady Symon room, accessible from the Cloisters. You may have to bang on the door to be let in!

We’ll also be in the CA Common room next week (15th of March), and in four weeks time on the 5th of April.

For the rest of the year, you should be able to find us on level four of Union House, either in the Harry Medlin, Margaret Murray or WP Rogers rooms.

Hope to see you soon!

EVAC 03/08/2012 – Post AVCon Depression

Posted by Alethea Lim On July - 31 - 2012Comments Off

AVCon is over for another year, and the next one is far enough away that we don’t need to care about it for a while (except for VG Coordinator Jimmy, poor Jimmy) So let’s play some vidya without worrying about attendees getting their greasy mitts over everything and sudden catastrophic hardware failures.

4:00pm Harry Medlin Room, level 4 Union House.

Head to the forums to discuss the next meeting!

Earned Value / Actual Cost – EVAC 2/03/2012

I’ve been doing Project Management training and the letters E, V, A and C made quite a few appearances in our session on budgets and costings. It being Friday, my mind naturally wandered to EVAC!

Anyhoo, we’re on as usual, Margaret Murray room this week. Discuss on the forums.
