2012 Portland Retro Gaming Expo! Who will be there?

Recommended Posts

I've just made the commitment to attend this year's Portland Retro Gaming Expo, taking place September 29th and 30th. Lots of great plans for the show, with several new Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800 games available (details of which will be announced soon!) I look forward to getting up to Portland again--great town and similar to Austin in many ways.

 

Just curious how many other AtariAge members will be attending?

Thanks! It'll be a ton of fun, although it means I will be busting my ass for the next month getting ready for the show! Really look forward to seeing many AtariAge members in Portland!

Excellent news! It looks like I've convinced my wife to go, she came home with Portland hotel and shopping recommendations from a friend at work. :) Great to hear there will be some new Atari games to buy! There's a certain Intellivision item that has caught my interest as well. :)

You know where I will be! Excited to meet Albert, Cmart and the rest! We really all should be sporting AA t-shirts for the event guys; just sayin'.

Ahh, I may need to have more AtariAge shirts printed, I'm pretty low on them right now! Adding to my ever growing list!

Yeah, just checked the store and no XL. Anyway, I would buy one at or before the show if available.

 

I'm going to drop by the screen printing company tomorrow and place a new order so I have them in time for the show. :D

I will be there again this year. Fun times playing the old school arcades that Ground Kontrol does not have. And maybe picking up a few more rare 2600 titles.

I'm going to order more blue shirts, but I may also get some in "maroon":

I'll be ordering more XL shirts than other sizes, since they seem to be the most popular.

Would you ever consider redoing some of the older shirts? I really like the blue and orange on the white shirts.

I will be a vendor at the show

What process is required to get to be a vendor at the PRGE show? Is there a link?

I will be there, and I also have been assisting someone else creating a crazy limited edition PRGE homebrew 2600 title. Stay tuned for more details.

I'm hoping to show "Planetary Defense 2012", an updated version of the old Atari 800 type-in assembly-language game Charles Bachand and I wrote for ANALOG Computing Magazine. I added bonus planet "terraforming" every 8000 points (so that if you survive long enough, your planet will repair some of the damage) and when run on the upcoming release of the "Colleen" Atari 800 emulator for the Android platform, it can be played using the Android touchscreen and will submit your scores to an Internet leaderboard! The same executable runs on a stock 400/800, just no touchscreen or leaderboard submission. What a fun job it was to upgrade! I hadn't touched 6502 assembly language in about 27 years... it all came back to me (shudder!)

 

Also doing some cool new software running on Atari "Tempest" hardware with Clay Cowgill of Ground Kontrol. More 6502 assembly on hardware I would have killed to work on back in the day. Hopefully will have something to show.
