Classic Game Fest 2016
« on: July 30, 2016, 05:11:13 AM »
Starts this weekend in Austin, TX. CGE
Heard about it on another forum and this is the 9th annual event. Supposed to the biggest so far. It's only 70 miles from my house and I thought about grabbing some tickets. Xevious on Jaguar is supposed to be available to play, which is the most interesting to me but I'm on call so won't make it :(
Anyone else attending? What I wouldn't give to be able to go! 8) 8) 8)

I attended this last year and it is CGF, not CGE.  :)  CGE is a different event that is no longer taking place.  CGF is an Austin, TX event and it is bigger this year than it was last year.  I was quite surprised at how well attended the event was last year!  It was difficult to walk in the exhibit hall!  Atari Age had a very nice display area.  I did get to try out Xevious for the Jaguar last year.  It's good it is finally being released.  I have to see how I can get my hands on a copy!

Lol yeah the e was a typo.

If I can break away from real life, I may sneak in and check it out. Working crazy hours like mine doesn't leave much room for events like these unfortunately 8)

Do let us know if you get to escape and visit the event.  I know Al doesn't have a booth there this year.

Will do, but I sure didn't make it today. Just got in from work and it's 10:45PM here. Tomorrow not looking good to hit the event either. That blows but real life has to come first, I guess...
Should change my status from a registered Republican to a Hillary voter. Then I could just do what feels good and to hell with responsibility. 8)
Strike those last two sentences. Might offend someone :D
