PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers™ (NAVGTR Corp.) has announced a special event, C3 at Sea. With prices starting at $681.81* per person based on double occupancy (includes all current government fees & port tax) on sale through a March 15, 2011 deadline, $100 from every ticket sold will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in honor of the person named by the ticket holder. A $200 deposit is required to reserve a cabin.

The event sets sail on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas® ship, leaving Baltimore, Maryland, on Saturday, October 29, 2011, for a 5 night cruise returning Thursday, November 3. Gamers and supporters will be heading to the Bermuda Triangle on Halloween for a Cosplay Caucus Cruise (C3).

Fans will walk the red carpet in costume (cosplay) to compete for several best dressed honors, then participate in a caucus election to determine the winners in NAVGTR's first ever Best Games of the Decade ceremony, in honor of the non-profit organization's tenth anniversary.

Pre-elimination contenders for Game of the Decade are Batman®: Arkham Asylum, Little Big Planet™, Bioshock®, Okami®, Shadow of the Colossus™, Half-Life 2®, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time™, Grand Theft Auto®: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto III.

Contenders in other categories include installments from the franchises World of Warcraft®, Final Fantasy®, Kingdom Hearts®, Sly Cooper®, Metal Gear Solid®, God of War®, Uncharted®, The Legend of Zelda®, Gears of War®, Oddworld®, Pikmin®, Guitar Hero®, Wii Sports®, Super Mario®, Halo®, Gran Turismo®, Elder Scrolls®, Call of Duty®, Tom Clancy, Doom®, Resident Evil®, Silent Hill®, Dragon Quest®, Mass Effect®, Rock Band®, Madden NFL®, Tony Hawk, The Sims®, Sid Meier's Civilization®, and Star Wars®.

Each year, 640 qualified voters determine the recipients of the NAViGaTR Awards, recognizing interactive entertainment industry achievements in the fields of art, technology, and production. For the first time ever, voting will be open to the public to select the best work from a decade of previous winners.

The Academy's registered voters will serve as superdelegates in the decade competition with two-fifths of the final vote. Superdelegates are contributors for such varied outlets as 1up, About.com, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Austin American-Statesman, Chicago Sun-Times, CNN, Contra Costa Times, Detroit Free Press, Digital Journal, EclipseMagazine.com, FHM, Gannett News Service, LA Weekly, Los Angeles Times, National Post, National Public Radio, NBC, New York Times, The Ottawa Citizen, PC Gamer, Philadelphia Inquirer, Play Magazine, Public Radio International, The Regina Leader-Post, Salon, San Jose Mercury-News, USA Today, The Vancouver Sun, Wired News, Wizard Magazine, WOW Weekly, Ziff-Davis Media, and hundreds more.

Onboard activities will also include rock climbing, bungie trampoline, and a roast of infamous "Gaming in the Clinton Years" narrator George Wood, whose friends and family will reflect on the surprise endurance of his much debated work.

Additional information on cosplay rules, caucus procedures, and how to become a roast speaker will be posted at the Academy's website, navgtr.org, the Academy's YouTube channel, youtube.com/navgtr, and the C3 at Sea Facebook page at tinyurl.com/c3atseapage.
