Panels and Schedule.  Looks like the panel John & I will be on is currently scheduled for Saturday at 3.  


Atari Anniversary Series: Old Consoles Never Die
 
Speakers: Tim Lapetino, Howard Scott Warshaw, Darrell Spice Jr. and John Champeau
 
Description: Part of our Atari 2600 Anniversary Panel Series, "The Art of Atari" author Tim Lapetino will moderate this panel exploring the continued appeal of writing new games for the Atari 2600 and other classic game consoles. Tim is joined by Howard Scott Warshaw, creator of two of the most iconic Atari games ever written: E.T. and Yar's Revenge. Also on hand are long-time homebrew game designers Darrell Spice Jr. and John Champeau whose games, many of which are published by AtariAge.com, push the boundaries of what was thought possible on the 2600 hardware.
 
Join this conversation spanning 40 years of gaming history and you will leave with a better understanding of the foundation of the modern video game industry.

I wish I could go to all of these.  It'll be difficult enough to escape the booth for an hour to do the one panel above..

I know they've recorded and posted the panels to YouTube in the past, suspect they'll do the same this year.

I just noticed we're committed for 2 hours.  After the panel, Saturday from 3-3:45 in Auditorium C, we're blocked in for an autograph session in the museum from 4-4:45.

I'm not sure I can be away from the booth for two hours, and I can't imagine anyone wanting my autograph..

I'm going to bribe 500 people, so be ready!  LOL    you don't need to be there for the whole 45 minutes, just show up at the start and sign all the ones that are there. when those are done you can go back to your booth.

Are you into identity theft?  Why do you want Al's signature. :P :D  I wish I could go, sounds like quite the turnout again.

Panel videos are showing up here.  

 

Watched a bit of The Story of Q*Bert last night, didn't know about Faster Harder More Challenging Q*Bert prototype. The ROM's been released for use with MAME, though you'll have to find it as it's not with the other free ROMs on the MAME site.

I knew about FHMC Q*Bert back in my MacMAME days. But I was always pretty terrible at Q•Bert, so I didn't need it. ;)

 

Looking forward to watching some of the panels though.

I was bummed that so many of the questions on the homebrew panel were just directed at Howard. I would have loved to hear more from you guys -- Howard had his own talk later :-)

Agreed, although it was still a good panel (apart from them being one microphone short :roll: ).
