So, that Grindhouse flick has made the phenomenon of the 'double feature' totally cool again, and lucky for me, I was able to hit up a double feature of casual gaming competitions last weekend. In this edition of the Craving NYC video blog is a look at a Cooking Mama: Cook Off tournament at the Nintendo World store, to commemorate its launch for the Wii; and a Guitar Hero II showdown at NYCLAN, a video gaming center in Manhattan's West Village neighborhood. (I wrote about their Halo players a few months ago.) It was really cool to see the mix of people who showed up to play, and to think about how games like these have completely changed the face of the video game industry. (I mean, cooking?)
So, there might not be any psychotic stuntmen, zombies, or Rose McGowan in my double feature, but I hope you like it anyway.
