NVIDIA staff flew in for the GAME24 event and brought goodies. Everyone walked away with t-shirts, posters, NVIDIA themed mouse pads, and prizes were drawn for over the course of the night.
The local tournament winners will all receive GTX 980 video cards. Since the GTX 980 was just announced that night, the winners will have to wait for their winnings to arrive in the mail. NVIDIA did have one Maxwell card on hand that went with the grand prize.
The grand prize was a complete custom Maingear PC with all the bells and whistles.
Towards the end of the night, Zach Johnson, owner of eBash, drew tickets to give away thousands of dollars in prizes.
TweakTown brought SSDs and power supplies to give away.
This lucky guy walked away with a new Maingear PC and EVGA GeForce GTX 980 GPU.
After the long keynote, gaming and prize collection, the only thing left to do before calling it a night was to eat.
Zac and I had a blast at GAME24 and it reinvigorated our love for gaming. NVIDIA managed to pull off local gaming festivities and tie them all together with a global feel. For most of the event, you could feel the buzz from the energy bouncing off the walls. eBash was a great host and the facility was perfect for this event.
If there was anything I'd like to see NVIDIA or the local host do differently is make the event 24 hours at each local location. Going into the event, I actually thought it was a 24 hour event and packed accordingly.
Once home (and unpacked), I was able to watch features, interviews and activities from other events on Twitch. It would be impossible for NVIDIA to fly game developers to each location, so this was a really good way to get the information out.
Hopefully this isn't a one and done event and NVIDIA does this on a regular basis, maybe once a year.
