As you probably know, March 1st marks the release date of Q-Games’ delightfully addictive PSN physics smorgasbord PixelJunk Shooter 2. We’re going to celebrate this momentous occasion the only way we know how: with a gigantic PlayStation community meetup and gaming session starring PixelJunk Shooter 2 and Patapon 3! (Protip: Quick, RSVP!)

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area on Monday, February 28th, come say hi! We’ll have open gameplay for PixelJunk Shooter 2 AND Patapon 3, and Ariel from Q-Games will be meeting and greeting fans at the event — you might know her from the PixelJunk Radio podcast. We’ll also be holding a PixelJunk Shooter 2 Online Battle tournament with fabulous prizes…but you’ll have to show up to see what they are!

Oh, and one more thing: The first 100 gamers to arrive at Mighty on February 28th will get a free copy of PixelJunk Shooter 2, just for being awesome. Mighty can hold hundreds of people, though, so don’t feel discouraged — though you will need to be 21 or older. Here are the full details:

Location: Mighty, 119 Utah St, San Francisco, CA 94103
Date: Monday, February 28th, 2011
Time: 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Note: You must be at least 21 years old — ID *will* be checked!
RSVP: Sign up to the event on our Facebook Page

Hope to see you there.

    Perhaps, but people just don’t know good BBQ out here. And good luck finding a Cracker Barrel!

I have the day off, I might go :)

I REALLY wanted to join the open Playstation discussion you guys held in SF on the 14th, but the dude I was supposed to contact wouldn’t not answer his phone or email!

Hey Jeff,

Question: So technically, we really don’t have to RSPV on Facebook, do we? We just have to get in line, and have our ID ready? Or are our names going to have to be on a list to enter?

Thanks

    Nope, it’s more for us to estimate the crowd, and for you to share with your friends that you’re going. Social media is all about telling everyone every little thing you’re up to!

Cool. Really looking forward to both of these games. :)

By the way, I haven’t heard much about Patapon 3 recently. Should we expect any more information to be released soon?

If we’re not on Facebook, can we show up and take our chances?

dang my family moved outa San Jose CA when i was a baby an i can’t move back but then agian after 18 years in Washington State an the fact i hate big citys (you can’t see the stars)i might never move back to CA, owell i don’t even like the old Patapon an i hated the first PJ shooter, 21 or older? those games look like mainly kids would like? i may be 21 but i would rather see rated M games, so why is this for only 21 or older?

A Patapon collection for the NGP would be nice! (Patapon 1-3, with trophy support, updated graphics)
You know what I’m saying :)

haha, anyway, I wish I lived in California! Everything seems to happen there! So many developers over there!

I have a better idea, lets all play Hard Corps: Uprising in our homes!!! That way we don’t have to meet up in some goofy place halfway across the world, you guys can just release the game, and we can play it, and everyone will be happy. How’s that sound?
