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.

Geesh, with that Atari Anniversary series -- how am I going to have time to see anything else?

 

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 have confirmed that the panels will be recorded 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.

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: ).
