Vegas, baby! Classic Gaming Expo 2014

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Vegas, baby! Classic Gaming Expo 2014

I'm just curious if anyone from Gunslinger Gaming is going to Las Vegas this year for the Classic Gaming Expo? It's from September 12th-14th. This will be the third CGE that I've been to, but it has been like four or five years since I last went. It seems to get bigger every year. They have tons of free older arcade games and systems to play. A ton of of retro venders and developers are on hand. You can usually meet some old school game developers from the 80's and get some autographs. And they usually have a retro band playing some crazy 8-bit Commodore 64 and NES retro tunes. Good times had by all. So is anyone going?

Wow, that looks interesting. I've never heard of CGE before .... maybe I should check it out as it's in my town. Gotta ask the hubby if he wants to go. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the heads-up!

Here's a video I made of my visit to the expo. Sorry the quality isn't that good as I'm not a professional videographer and I just used a regular digital camera.

Hey Todd, you said you were there Saturday.... did I get you in any of the clips?



I also bought this, something I've been looking for all these years and finally found it at this expo. :D

Na, none of me. In that segment where you were filming the girl playing the keyboard hooked up to the Apple IIc, I was there when that photographer was taking pics. I thought I might see myself when you panned the camera around..lol.

Cool that you got an old school Nintendo Game & Watch game you were looking for.

That's quite a bounty you got there. Nice!
Too bad I didn't get you on my video. Also, kinda disappointed that Bob and I didn't get to meet you there. I guess it's my fault that I failed to let you know we would be at the expo. :(

It is all good. I just joined GS in August and I'm just now starting to get to know a few people. I thought about saying something here to see if you wanted to meet up at CGE. Now that we've played some Destiny together and maybe some Halo: MCC in the future ;-) , maybe we can meet up at the next CGE.
