2010 Portland Retro Gaming Expo This Weekend 9/18 - 9/19!

It’s that time of year again! “Wockawockawocka” sounds from TV speakers, the smell of old capacitors fills the air and joysticks have just one fire button = it’s time for the 2010 Portland Retro Gaming Expo!

Since this event started 5 years ago it has gotten bigger and more popular every year and 2010 promises to be the biggest and best ever. There are tons of vendors (see photos below) setting up, the museum and console play area is huge and there are XX arcade machines on free play and growing. In addition we have keynotes with noted speakers such as Bill Carlton (“High Score” movie), Robin Mihara (3rd place winner of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships) and Bob Smith (20 year veteran Atari, Imagic and Accolade game programmer). This promises to be an awesome show!

They even set up a little retro corner with wood cabinet TV, scary looking couch, wood paneling and the mandatory black velvet painting – relive the past in style! (or lack thereof)

So come to Portland this Saturday and Sunday and geek out at the PRGE 2010!
