First off, let me say that I was going to take pics and video of everything that was happening in that Nightclub, but I had to let my mom and my sister borrow the DV cam I had for their trip to Mexico... Therefore, there won't be any pictures here today ( :cry: ).
Anyhow, I got off the Bart station and walked down 11th street to Slim's... There was a long line, it wasn't as long as the line at After Hours, that line was twice as long. I arrived and got in line at around 6pm, and we were waiting out there in the cold for an additional 15 minutes (I think GameSpot was having technical difficulties at the time, I'm not really sure though). Then one of Slim's staff came out and told everyone to have their ID's out, and not to carry any sharp objects, such as weapons for example... I took out my keys, and my ID, and this girl was in front of the line, patting everyone down to check for weapons or whatnot, when she patted me down, she felt something in my right pocket... It was a Sharpie. She said I couldn't bring it in, so I had to throw it away. Poor Sharpie... I showed them my ID, and was greeted by a couple girls holding multiple flavors of free Stride Gum... I took the first of many packs that night, and I proceeded to look around the nightclub... It was kinda small, but it could easily accommodate around 150 people... I think there were more people though, it was quite packed, we were like sardines in a tin box.
There are four distinct parts in this nightclub, there was the main floor, where everyone walks through, and in the center of it all is a table with 12 LCD monitors and a Xbox 360 for each person playing the last round of the Saving Vagas Tourney. I must say this was probably the most intense gaming session I have seen ever. The gamers were pwning each other left and right, and in the while everyone was shouting expletives to each other... It was kinda funny actually; none of my online gaming sessions were ever close to being that intense. :P
The next part of the nightclub was the stage area, where On The Spot was being filmed throughout the evening. I didn't spend too much time in that area up until the last half hour, where Button Mashing was taking place. I saw the seven contestants play PixelJunk racer, and then 3 of them played Memory Leak... No one said Mario Paint! :cry: .
Poor Daniel, he got pwnt by Daniel 'Badass'... :( , at least he got the Guitar Hero II bundle for free! ^___^
Next to the floor was the bar, and at this bar... They were serving Chicken, Mini Burgers, Quezadillas, French Fries, Sandwiches... at for drinks, they were serving Coke, Sprite, Water, Red Bull (Yes, Red Bull! :o ), and a special fruit drink from Stride, called Forever Fruit. It had Pineapple pulp, Peach Nectar, and Mango Juice. It was quite tasty... ^_^. The best part was that all the food and drinks were free, and there were waitresses carrying drinks throught the whole club, so we don't have to keep going back to the bar whenever we want something 8) . There were also games on the bar's countertop, there was Halo 3, Virtua Fighter 5, Need for Speed ProStreet, Skate, Sega Rally... all of which are for the 360, and the sole PS3 game that was playable was Ratchet and Clank Future... This game looks and plays like a dream, I'm really excited about this game, it just looks gorgeous.
And lastly, their was the VIP suite (I was mostly there, naturally... 8):P ), and the only thing up there were two Rock Band games playing on two huge HDTVs... I was terrible on Bass, but I did pretty well on Drums, and feels very natural. This game is going to rock, I just wish it had better songs to play. :P
So I basically hanged out, made some new friends, got pwned on Halo 3 (This marks the first time of me playing that game), played Rock Band, and basically had a good time. I hope to be coming back to this next year... It really is awesome. 8)
