I attended PRGE this past weekend and I have to say this was a fantastic event. Besides a huge vendors room, there was a large arcade room and three auditoriums with panels from various guests. Some of these included Howard Scott Warshaw (ET, Yar's Revenge, Raiders of the Lost Ark Atari 2600), Steve Golson (from GCC, who did an entire presentation on what became the Atari 7800, a system that had lots of potential before Jack Tramiel bought Atari), Atari programmers Bob Smith, Rob Zydbel, Ed Rotberg, and Brad Stewart; Ed Fries (Halo 2600), Tod Frye (2600 Pac-Man), and the guys behind Imagic, Bob Smith and Denis Koble. There were some YouTube celebrities also like The Angry Video Game Nerd and The Gaming Historian. Here is a picture album I made: PRGE 2016.
Wow, really amazing seeing those huge display cabinets of game boxes all.
Was Al from Atari Age there, or was it someone else? How about who was from Ground Kontrol? Was it Clay Cowgill or someone else? Nice to see Game Over has made it up there, for a while they were only here in Texas. Looks like they'll be expanding to a third state now!
Nice, maybe I'll make PRGE next year. Not sure why PRGE is much bigger the SRGE (Seattle Retro Gaming Expo). Perhaps because we have PAX. Always lover playing Vectrex at PAX and SRGE, finally picked one up ealier this month at a Goodwill and it's become my primary gaming machine.
