I just found out about this one last weekend. Another show coming up, the Classic Gaming Expo (see the announcement below). It sounds like a good one, set in glittery Las Vegas. Think of it... Commodore and high rollers together... :-) Truly, Robert Bernardo Fresno Commodore User Group ------ Classic Gaming Expo 2001 Jackie Gaughan's Plaza Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, Nevada August 11-12 Classic Gaming Expo is an annual celebration of the roots and history of the videogame industry. If you remember what it's like to cram a videogame into 4k of ROM with only 128 bytes of memory to work with, or would like to chat with some of the people who made the industry you are part of what it is today, Classic Gaming Expo is for you. Dozens of the pioneers of the videogame industry will be on-hand as well as hundreds of videogame fanatics. [John Harris, president of the Amiga Group Enthusiasts of Fresno, and speaker and attendee at last year's CGE, tells me that thousands of people were there. And he tells me that Commodore gaming is there, too.] Feast your eyes on just a few of the special guests who attended last year's CGE: Ralph Baer - Often referred to as the Father of Videogames as he designed the Odyssey I - the first cartridge-based game system. Blue Sky Rangers - The original group of Mattel programmers responsible for most of the Intellivision game library. Activision Originals - Steve Cartwright, David Crane, and Garry Kitchen were household names to anyone with an Atari 2600 in the early 80's. Atari 2600 Programmers - Dennis Koble, Steve Woita, Rob Fulop, Howard Warshaw, Bob Smith, Tod Frye, and Bob Polaro created some of the best VCS games ever. Joe Decuir -Worked with Jay Miner to design the Atari 2600 and also worked on the Atari 800 and the original Amiga 1000 computer. Electronic Games Magazine - Arnie Katz, Bill Kunkel, and Joyce Worley were major players at the gamer's magazine of the 80's. Special guests are only a part of what's happening at CGE. There will be literally dozens of classic arcade games lining the walls and available for play, scores of vendors offering classic games for sale, game contests and tournaments, keynote speeches and roundtable discussions, and a museum boasting the most comprehensive collection of classic videogame hardware and software ever assembled.
