The Bert*Off
« on: February 08, 2013, 12:34:20 PM »
I know it's not DK related but I wanted to put this on the calender here to remind everyone to tune in and support George and Ed!

Best of luck guys!

Brian,

Contrary to what you have been posting here and on other forums, this forum wasn't created to "get away" from anyone. Anyone is welcome to join. Yes, even people who don't play DK.

I made this post to put the event on the calender and to make a place to offer support for Ed and George.  Nothing more.

If a post doesn't interest you, don't click on it. If there is another member whose posts you don't like, put them on your ignore list.

If you have a comment or suggestion for the forum,  there is an entire subforum just for that.

I'm very happy that there is a good arcade alternative to CAGDC now, where it's about gaming again and not complaining all the time.

Long live the DK forum.

Brian,

I think this forum will always remain overwhelmingly about DK. That's all that was wanted/needed in the first place, since the DK community has grown to be so large. It's not gonna turn into another CAGDC simply by by allowing people to mention other games and events related to them here or there -or, even if non-DK players register. There are already places to satisfy the need to talk about other games, so I don't think it will ever get out of hand or be a problem (not to say that talking about other games is actually a 'problem', per se, but you get what I mean).

Getting back to the Bert-Off; I'll be there on Friday streaming my live attempt at 2 milllion+ on TRON.  1.8 million is my current high.

It's gonna be a blast hanging out and playing at Richies.

It's going to be very cool playing just feet away from George!

I told George a while back there was no way I was going to miss his next attempt at Richie's.  So to be there playing with him on my first live arcade submission attempt is going to be a day I'll always remember.

I think Richie and co. need to get a little more creative with the naming of these events.

You can't just call everything the "x" Off.

It started with the Frog Off, then came the Tron Off, then the Kong Off, the (planned) Pac Off, and now the Bert Off.

They need to differentiate this stuff a little, especially now that the Kong Off is coming into its own as a pretty significant recurring event.

Here, some freebies: The Tronament, The Pac-10, The Q*Bout, I don't know, the Berzerkathon? There's a million of em.

It really aint that hard!
