Well this weekend I attended the Ca Extreme video game show. Its was fun but i really need to bring a crew of folks with me next time. I always feel weird being away from my wife and not really with anyone else. Also a large amount of the older games are best when played against someone you know. You can see from the pictures there are tons of games and a see of people happy to play them.
I am a not a pinball player so that is wasted on me. but there is enough in the video game side to keep me playing for the day. There are a lot of old favorites though I almost feel weird getting on those as I could easily play Willow all day if it is free play. I do better than the people who play before me but I am not as good as the old days in the Eastridge arcade by Sears.
Next are a couple of Super Mario Bros. themed games. Mark's son Max a fiend when it comes to Mario related stuff. So perhaps these would be the right pinball games to get him really hocked. There was another that actually was a video pinball game. I don't know if I missed a photo on that on but I am not sure about a game without the physical nature that defines pinball games.
Really if you can imaging it, then it was there. Here is a shot of the cocktail game area. Loads of people having fun. They even had a cocktail version of Star Castle which is a favorite of mine.
If you notice the rat band above they had that set up doing 80's music. It was a bit odd seeing that thing sing bad medicine by Bon Jovi. They even had a Roger Day set up.
