Nanuet Resident to Bring Entertainment To RCC Shelter

Arcade2Go is heading out to the shelter around 7 p.m. Wednesday night


Owen Soba of Nanuet founded Arcade2Go and has several good deeds under his belt including helping out the Highview Community Playground. Wednesday night, he's bringing his mobile gaming trailer to RCC, which is being used as a shelter for those displaced by Hurricane Sandy. 

Arcade2Go is a "mobile video gaming solution that has been developed specifically to provide extreme multiplayer gaming entertainment to any event including, video game parties, grand openings, family picnics, video game tournaments, or corporate team building events.”

He's heading to RCC around 7 p.m. to donate his gaming trailer for about two hours to keep kids entertained. 

On his mind is also his upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Tournament, which is scheduled for this Saturday at the Palisades Center. 

"Right now I'm depending on power for the mall," said Soba. "I met with them (mall management) today and they're under the assumption that they may be up within 24 hours because they're on the same grid as Nyack Hospital."

Earlier today, the Nyack Hospital grid was back on around 5 p.m. on Wednesday, but there is no confirmation yet from the mall as to whether or not they're open.

This is one of the best stories I've read all morning! I'm glad to see people stepping up and giving to the community. I heard Activision is out, so players can't play and could only hope that bringing that up is not high on the priority list. I'm fine going to the local Airsoft field and shoot targets with the rifle I got from http://www.airsplat.com. At least this brought back some normality to the kids. I'm giving you a thumbs up!
