Due to my own mistakes, I listed the upcoming Namsoc Games Day as £2 per person when in fact it is £3. This has been adjusted on the Events page and the website. Sorry to those this has affected. I take full responsibility for not giving you the right information. – Michael.
In return, a couple of games will be featured on the day.
Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS Tourney – With the next Gen of Pokemon games just around the corner, we are giving the current Gen one last hurrah with a tournament at Games Day. Idea right now is for Smogon OU 6 V. 6 Single rules, although these may change depending on what people have ready before the event.
Rocket League Tourney – Small cars and big balls! Taking a popular Top Gear promo and doing for real-ish-ish from the comfort of your own room. Play Football with automobiles, destroy your opponents and score some cracking bicycle kicks. Tournament will be set up on the day depending on number of people signing up. A minimum of 8 would be enough for a full tourney.
Jackbox Party Pack… THREE! – Like a board game but with your phone, on a big screen and slightly more chaos. The ever-popular series releases a new set next week, just in time for many at Namsoc to enjoy for the first time. Games are usually 3 – 8 players, but even audiences members can join in on the carnage. All you need is a phone, tablet or computer with an internet connection.
First of all, we have to apologize for the lack of activity this webpage has seen the last few months. However, we are happy to say that everything looks to be back on track! We gave the site a bit of a spring cleaning (in Autumn no less), updated a few pages, added some features etc. in order for our viewers something new and shiny to look at. Also, if you are visiting for the first time, we’d like to give you a great, big hello! 😀
Games Day is almost upon us. Our members are getting their thumbs ready for a seriously action-packed session of console gaming, competing on consoles old and new across a wide variety of genres. We look forward to seeing people at the DCC at Noon on the 22nd October 2016. Price of admission for all members and newbies is £2 a head. We might even be holding a tournament or two so watch out for updates either on here or the Facebook group (feel free to send a join request – we don’t bite!)
Due to an unexpected change in the line-up, the Roberta’s Blood Trail OVA’s for Black Lagoon will NOT be playing at NamSoc and will instead be replaced by the sports/comedy Battle Athletes Victory. We will update on if and when the Black Lagoon OVA’s will be played.
Battle Athletes Victory will begin next week and will run for 26 episodes in either English or Japanese with English Subtitles.
One of the most popular series released last year, this past Tuesday saw the member-voted premiere of One Punch Man, Shonen Jump’s superhero parody series – definitely one to check out. The series will run for 12 episodes and will be in Japanese with English subtitles, due to lack of an English dub at the time of this writing.
With Summer on it’s way, it’s time to go outside! This June we’re hoping to embrace the warmer, sunnier weather with an outdoor picnic. Planned for Saturday 18th June, we’re hoping to make it a day of fun and hopefully the first of many this year. Click here for more details.
With School finally “rumbled” for now (sorry…), NamSoc now moves over to the recent Fantasy/Modern action mish-mash known as GATE. This screening will consist of two 12-episode seasons and will be in Japanese with English Subtitles as no English dub currently exists. This screening is rated 15+ due to violence, language and adult themes.
