Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2015 Random Walk Around video

Recommended Posts

Great video. That retrocade looked sweet. And had Roadblasters. A personal fav.

 

Thanks for posting.

The retrocade was pretty decent. CGE had a better atmosphere and more room to move around - and overall I liked the console setup much better - but PRGE had the feeling of a super-packed 80s arcade. Wall-to-wall machines all lined up just like the old days.

 

The videos don't go the vendor area justice. There was just so much stuff there.

 

The video pinball games (like the Tron one!) were absolutely stunning. I had no idea what they were - found out later that they were modern, custom creations. They really should have had a little card explaining what they were or something. I would have sworn that someone uncovered some previously-undiscovered Tron prototype.

Neat little machine, the video and reflected backglass effect was incredible. The sounds were direct from the arcade version and the cabinet was perfect.

Strangely, Tron and Discs of Tron were absent from the arcade...

I requested it especially for you but then you jammed on us. The 3 crotch-piggies were sad indeed...
