Whoah nelly. Is it that time of year already? You bet it is!
It's June and ZV's 17th birthday is right around the corner! Seventeen years, my dudes. Our community has endured the test of time, that's for sure. Never been happier to be here with you folks, with all of the craziness and uncertainty of these times, it makes me thankful we have each other. So what do you say we all share in the sentiment and celebrate together?
If you were in the chat last night after the Wrestlemans tournament, you saw the preliminary announcement of these festivities. We're making it official now and putting up the polls, so let's put it all out there!
We of the staff discussed it amongst ourselves and took things to the chat on IRC and Discord last night, and we've come up with four days of celebrations consisting of the following events spanning from Thursday, June 18th until ZV's birthday on Sunday, June 21st.
- ROM Hack Stream: This will be our main streaming event this year. I've been hard at work learning how and modding a certain game to create a unique and entertaining experience... And Xero's gonna go in blind streaming it! We'll be streaming together giving commentary while you guys get to see what shenanigans I've subjected him to. As for what game it is, well... You'll all just have to wait and see. Hoping it'll be a lot of fun!
- ZV Movie Night: Back by popular demand! Last year we had a blast getting together on Discord and watching The Princess Bride together. And it was such a hit, everyone wants to do it again. So we'll be posting a poll to determine what movie we'll watch this time around and have an encore of ZV Movie Night!
- ZV Wrestlemans Pay Per View: Anyone who's been paying attention to the chat and Xero's YouTube channel knows that we've for the last month had our very own Pro Wrestling program! For those not in the know, Xero has (with the help of Aerin, Vic, and Tony) amassed a large number of Zero Virus themed custom Wrestlers in WWE 2k19 on the PS4, and using the game's Universe Mode, Xero has put together a show that updates regularly and gives us the zany pro wrestling experience with all of our favorite ZV characters. While the episodes are pre-recorded, we also get Pay Per View (PPV) live streams on occasion that are even bigger and more fun. And don't worry, even if they're structured like real life PPV shows, they're totally free to watch. That being said, ZV Universe is due for a PPV event during ZV's birthday weekend, so Xero will be hosting a Wrestlemans blowout for us all to enjoy!
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tournament: Once more, what's a ZV birthday without a Smash tourney? We need opinions on how to do this one though! Last year we did an Amiibo Tournament where we all trained amiibo and watched them go at it, rather than playing the game ourselves. It was a lot of fun, actually, so we're putting that on the table again. But maybe you guys would rather actually play the game this time? Let's take it to a poll! We're doing a Smash Tourney this year, but we'll leave it up to you whether you want to beat the snot out of each other or coach some meebs to defend your honor!
- Animal Crossing Event: Since Animal Crossing is all the craze these days, we thought it'd be nice to do something with that! The name for this event is a little vague though... That's because we don't know what we're doing specifically just yet! We've got some ideas and they're going on a poll. Let's have our Animal Crossing players decide how to celebrate in this new game.
That's our intended lineup, fellas. Not too shabby eh? Below, I'm going to list links to the polls we'll be using to determine the exact nature of our festivities, and at a later date I'll update it with the exact schedule for our events (which is still in the works--Sorry!) We're still organizing things but we hope to give ZV an awesome birthday party and celebrate the community that brought us all together and continues to hold us together. Please stay tuned to the chatroom via IRC or Discord, as well as our Facebook group to stay up to date on details and discussion.
