Actions, not words

I've updated the Digital Overload Tournaments page to include a Guitar Hero 2 tournament. It should be pretty metal.

Speaking of Metal, I'm pleased to announce that Mookie of Dominic Deegan will be returning to Digital Overload this year. Mookie eats hard rock for breakfast, and follows the religion of Guitar Hero piously. You can expect to see him tearing up the guitar at DO2007.

There is only a few more weeks to pre-register for the event before the price goes up. Also, if you pre-register now, you get a free event t-shirt. We don't take registrations at the door, so you have to pre-register if you want to attend. May as well do it early enough to save some money and get a free shirt.

I've made some adjustments to the Digital Overload forum... primarily creating a subsection just for room and ride shares, so it's easier for people to find eachother. Check it out if you're looking to cut down on travel costs for the event. There's even a Canadian bus trip in the works.

Winter-een-mas shirts and hoodies

We've made the 2007 generation of Winter-een-mas shirts available. I've removed the year (2007) from the design this time, unlike the last two WEMas shirt designs. Though I felt putting the year on each shirt made for a nice collectable item (since we only offer WEMas shirts for a limited time each year), it made wearing your 2005 shirt in 2007 a little out of place. This way people can buy a WEMas shirt and wear it for all future holidays. And the design will still be different each year, so there is still something "collectable" about it.

I've also modified the Winter-een-mas logo a bit, to make the controller more generic. I think a lot of fanboys had a problem with the controller being identifiable to one system or another.

On the back of the shirt I put the simple tagline explaining what Winter-een-mas is, and the dates of the celebration.

We're offering t-shirts and hoodies this year, to accomodate the clothing needs of Winter-een-mas celebrators no matter what climate they reside in.
