Today, Mash Tactics is coming to you live with MonkeyPaw Games to celebrate the release of BurgerTime World Tour(available now on Xbox Live Arcade, coming soon to PSN and WiiWare). Starting at 1PM Pacific, Jon Carnage and Wesley Ruscher will be playing this vibrant re-imagining of the arcade classic and talking with some of the minds behind it. This special event will be stacked high with competitions, interviews, and actual hamburgers.
Carnage and Wesley will be kicking off the event by getting their hands on World Tour and sitting down with the President and CEO of MonkeyPaw, Jon Greiner, to talk about the conception of this retro revival. After that, the Mash crew will be teaming up with the MonkeyPaw crew to play World Tour against the developers of the game at Frozen Codebase over Xbox Live.
At 3pm Pacific, renowned retro-gaming master Eric Cummings will be concurrently streaming his attempt to break the world record in BurgerTime for the Nintendo Entertainment System here. Meanwhile, the San Francisco crew will be joined by a slew of gaming industry guests including Victor Ireland, founder of Gaijinworks and former President of Working Designs.
For the last hour of this already packed event, MonkeyPaw is bringing in a banquet of the best burgers in San Francisco for a massive, and potentially messy burger eating contest. Viewers will also be welcome to jump on Xbox Live and play World Tour live with the whole gang.
