The guys running console brought two copies of Melee with them. I don't know if this happened before or after the tournament was supposed to happen, but both copies were stolen.
Now, from the arcade staff: I'd like to apologize first and foremost about the condition of the first player pad on the DDR Extreme. I believe most of the problems we ran into were related to the process of moving them. I did spend some time working on them when I could and would like to thank the people who stuck around to check the tweaks and test. My PA isn't quite as good as it used to be.
I'm also aware that the volume situation wasn't optimal for the dance games, but the size of the room and electrical considerations forced us into the organization we used. Balancing sound on three dance games against each other and the rest of the console room isn't easy to do. We were trying to get just enough volume that players and people behind the pads could hear the songs without breaking the eardrums of the IPG guys or drowning out the machine next to it.
I've already seen feedback saying the arcade needs to be larger. We agree, but have no control over any of it. We just filled up a 26' rental truck and brought games we owned that people wanted to play.

Keep it coming.
The room was indeed too small, it was like a second rave on Saturday in the gaming room.
Also, I will see if we can get more signage about the gaming room.
The Hyatt had most of the events, while the Hilton basically had all types of gaming.
Next year may be quite different. So be prepared.

Also, the tournaments need to be run by people who know the systems. Anyway myself could volunteer to do that? The person running the BLOPS 2 tournament had no idea what he was doing and it took 30+ minutes to get going. And, there was 4 players playing on one screen, which was really irritating.
Also, I was disappointed when the Halo 4 tournament got delayed. They weren't able to give us a start time for later that night so I don't even know if it happened or not.
Other than that, looking forward to next year!
