Gamers wage table tennis war
October 18, 2007 11:50 AM
Rockstar Games kicked off a national tour promoting their new game “Rockstar Games Present Table Tennis” by holding a table tennis tournament on the Wii video game console.
The tournament was promoted with the Gamers’ Conclave, a student group aimed around gaming.
Eight players participated in the tournament to win an actual ping-pong table. One competitor, Nicholas Davies, did not think he had a chance to win. “I hope to do OK,” said the 23-year-old mechanical engineering major.
The tournament was brought to the campus through Honor Baxter, 21, who works for Spectre, a promotions company out of Los Angeles.
The Gamers’ Conclave tries to hold events several times a year.
“S.F. State doesn’t have enough events. There’s not a lot of events to draw people in. I love doing this kind of stuff,” said Erik Gad, 20, a creative writing major and the events coordinator for the Gamers’ Conclave.
The next event will be held on Nov. 3 for the release of “Guitar Hero III.” The location has yet to be determined.
