pins and vids and MAME, oh my!

So, as promised, I spent most of today at the California Extreme Gaming Show… as a geek *should*. I wore my “wizard needs food badly” t-shirt, of course. The ratio of men to women was staggering, naturally… but I felt perfectly comfortable whooping their butts in Warlords, hee hee! 😉

They had live projections of Dragon’s Lair and various vector games on the convention hall’s wall. Too awesome.

I played a lot of Pinball. Where else are you going to get this much pinball in one place? I took full advantage of it, and played almost every one of ’em. I played a few good games of Revenge from Mars with Mish, and I got a decent score of about 91,000,000!

Loren was there too, and he bought a game cabinet to start on his MAME project. Wish I had enough money to buy a game… but then I’d hafta toil over *which* one, such a hard decision!

Unfortunately, I did not have a digital camera on hand, and chanced lugging around my Nikon SLR. I only took 10 pictures. Whoops. My hands were full playing games, anyways. What a good way to spend a Sunday.
