Falcon Gamers unite for video game competition


“I’m not a dancer,” said Alvyn Sin, computer science major, after participating in the Spring Festival’s gaming competition, Wii dancing. Sin played against Judy Yip, criminal justice major.

On Thursday, April 3 starting at 11 a.m., clubs such as The Anime Club, Phi Beta Kappa, Chicanos/Latinos for Community Medicine, iFalcon, Scifi Club, among many others, came together to compete in the Falcon Game’s Gamers Unite tournament.

The games included Wii bowling and dancing and a trio of racing games. The video games were chosen by their competitive feeling and with no violence, according to a volunteer, Marison Arcilla, business administration major.

First place prize was $200, second place $100 and third place $50.

Sin, representing the STEM Club said, “My strongest (suits) are racing games and anything like sports, but not dancing.”

He lost against Judy Yip, criminal justice major, who said “I had a lot of fun so far and I know this is going to be a fun day.”

Shadi Abuhani, anthropology major, representing the Scifi club said that the Gamers United competition would have been better if they had informed the clubs ahead of time of the games they had available.

“One major reflection was that last year, it was a point system and it was very fair for the gamers.” Abuhani lost in the Wii bowling match and would have preferred if they had archery, he said.

Damian Tuyssier, history major, said, “I’m more into the shooting … but I came out here in the interest of playing video games.”

He and Christian San Jose, nursing major, both representing the Phi Ro Pi (Speech and Debate club) both agreed on having fun.

The winners for the Gamers Unite tournament: First place the iFalcon Club represented by Sofia Kaiser & Andrew Salazar, second place came the Kabarkada Club represented by Chaz Villaver and Emani Tautulo and third place was the International Students Association represented by Albert Saucedo, Lewter Melegrito, and Charlie Zuniga.

About the Contributor
Gustavo Lopez, Online Editor
I have coffee for blood and I'm not entirely sure I'm human anymore. I sort of stumbled into journalism and Talon Marks but I'm glad I did because I've always lacked direction, even though I've always been told I'm "smart." I've never really felt smart, more like the world doesn't make sense and I'm just trying to make sense of it. I'm a huge gamer and geek and the very model of a scientist Salarian. One thing you'll hear me say usually after several cups of coffee is either "I am Krogan" or "it had to be me, someone else would have gotten it wrong." I hope the editors and the new staff learn from my past mistakes, as well the ones that came before. I wish everyone the best in whatever they may pursue. Let's kick some ass, write good news and show them Talon Marks is more than just the newspaper. We're a team and family. This is Goose signing off, go get'em.
