Call me old fashioned, but I prefer to actually share the room with people I’m gaming with (or against.)

Don’t get me wrong. Online gaming is incredible, but I like to see the look on someone’s face when my Charizard burns their, well, face off.

If you’re game, our next Clashing Controllers tournament is 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday, July 15, at Mentor Library’s Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

We’ll be playing Super Smash Bros Wii U and you’re invited.

There’s no buy-in or anything like that. We bring the console, game and snacks. You just need to show up and play.

If you win, you get bragging rights and a Certificate of Awesomeness.

While you’re here, you can sign up for summer reading too.

For every book you read or library program you attend between now and Aug. 1, you get a raffle ticket and a chance to win cool prizes like Captains Tickets or gift cards to Panera, Target, Amazon and more. You can even register online.

So if you’re going to play video games, you might as well play with friends and possibly win something for playing.

See you at the library.

Ahh, to live in a world where Mega Man, Sonic and Mario can just fight it out over who's the best, as opposed to just arguing about it over lunch...
