Gamers Arena to Hold Opening Cermonies

A new video game store will press start and begin life in downtown State College this week. Located at 421 East Calder Way, Gamers Arena should provide the perfect alternative to those on campus who don’t want to take a bus to purchase murder simulators. The store is celebrating not being GameStop with a grand opening bash tomorrow, the first of October.

According to the Gamers Arena site, it was founded by a couple of guys that were tired of dealing with “corporate gaming.” Rather than taking the conventional route of eating tofu and not showering, these dudes fought the corporate machine by opening a small business. The opening party will run from 3 to 8 p.m., and will feature food, tournaments, prizes, and music by B94. I suggest doing your part in supporting a local business by stopping in with middle fingers extended and pointed toward corporate America.

The 3 Keys to Never Graduating

It is that time of year again. The weather is getting warmer when it feels like it and we switch to shorter pants just as the insects begin to multiply. It is a magical time of year that some of us will see for the last time in State College. For those lucky few, not going to class this week is a sign of maturity. With a college degree ensured, the world awaits you. Unless you’re in the Liberal Arts, of course. Then, your mother’s couch awaits you. However, there exist among us the ones that dare to take it to the next level. The ones that can’t get enough binge drinking, construction, and parking citations. The ones that will never graduate. How do they do it? Very, very smugly. These are the keys to never leaving Penn State.
