Yes, pics. All my ppl forgot their cameras, too busy playing games or too drunk to bother with taking any good shots of the arcade area for me.

Was it KholdStare that I met? Good taking with you, too bad I never got up with any more RB members.

Yeah, it was a great time. I was shocked how much retro stuff they had. We should organize next year and bring in our retro gear. I'm tempted to rent a room and open it up for people to hang out and game.

I played Tetris Plus for like 3 hours straight on a Saturn while I was there. I'm wondering if next year people would want to do some sort of marathon of a particular game. I see everyone there playing the newer stuff on projectors with tournaments going on but I want to do something more retro; like a Bomberman or Super Spike V Ball tourney.

Yeah, t'was me. And like wise. Sadly, I didn't bring my camera because I had forgotten all about it : (
And HAHA I played Teteris Plus on the Saturn, damn I wished they would've put something else in like Panzer Dragoon or some shit. Alot of games though, I wouldn't have expected them to be playing i.e super mario world, donkey kong country, sonic 3, I thought they would've had more competitor stuff but oh well it was still cool. I dunno who took out Raiden and put Zool in the Jaguar, but damn them. DAMN THEM TO HELL!

Hahahah! Sorry dude, that was me! I never played a Jaguar before so I switched out Raiden for Zool 2 to see if it was any good. I was sorely wrong.
