yeah there was a lot of good games out to play today.
we got there just gone12 too and queue was wrapping around the building, it moved quick though and was only in line for ten mins or so which wasn't too bad.
spent most my time on the old cabinets. some classic vintage machines too even old Caveman Grandstand table top... Which got a quick rinse
wanted to get some pics of all the old computers and consoles laid out but my phone ran dead within minutes of getting in... thought I'd have a mains plug to charge it on the train on way up but didn't, so cained most its juice playing Tekken on it on the journey, just got it juiced now in hotel room,
Make sure I take some pics tomorrow.
Any Pandorians there tomorrow with their Panda in arms...
Haha Cheers Nathan! Maybe it wasn't me then :wacko: I had my Pandora and a camera bag....
Yeah, same here. I should have looked around rather than sitting with my back to everyone while my daughter scoffed her burger.
I wish I had gone again today too. I'm a bit gutted I missed today after yesterdays fun. I wouldn't have done Blackpool twice though.
Mind you, it would have cost me money if I had gone back. I was after the boxed Atari 520 and Amiga on the Console / games store on the corner but I couldn't remember if I had a 520 in the loft or not so I decided against it. I just remember the cock up at Blackpool last year. I can't remember what it was, it might have been a boxed Atari 2600 (Wood one) and I stupidly thought it would be cheaper on Ebay...yeah...right.
Well, We'll have to organise a meet properly next time.
I'm afraid I have no proper camera, this was all taken on my Xperia Play phone, so quality is far from perfect on some of them.
Do have a few more from the Saturday, my phone ran out early but used an old Nokia with a 1.3 or 2MP cam, so not expecting those ones to look that good when blown up on a larger screen but I will see when I back them up.
The Guile done the Sonic Boom move and I captured mid motion so it came out blurry, he had the hair and US flag tattoo, looked the part.
The pic of Necromanca came out ok and that outfit was the nuts...
As were the girls in the Zombie Catwoman / Left 4 Dead Witch / Suckerpunch Babydoll, who also looked very good in their outfits...
A good costume of Link too, but think must've taken pic of her on the other phone...
I didn't actually get my hands on the Wii U ... I wanted to but each time I walked around to where it was the queue was still pretty long, I kept thinking to myself I would wait till it was less but it never was.
They had a few openings in their zone though so you could peek through and see people playing it, it did look good, it seems some parts of the game [batman Arkham at least] you have to play on the tablet itself only, on the main screen it was prompting ["look at controller now"], unless the player was just taking long to pull off a move which was being instructed on the tablet so the telly display shows the prompt after a while - not sure?
Looks good though I thought, I was watching a bit of play for a while, and of course a new Mario game.
That Tetris machine was classic
So many classic machines there, right down to the old Tomytronic 3D games... and they had plenty tabletop games many of which I'd never even seen before, and the Grandstand Caveman tabletop game which I had to steal a few dino eggs for old times sake on.
Damn, I kinda forgot about this, but then had a pretty busy weekend anyway.
Shame, I would have liked to have poked the XCOM guys in the eye Just kidding, it's not great as a remake/reimaging of UFO:Enemy Unknown, but it's not a bad game. They really should have just called it something else (still with the XCOM name, just not Enemy Unknown)
