Just got back from the Oklahoma Gaming Expo, am currently unpacking all my stuff that I had out for display and sale. It was fun! Since this was my first time being part of a show instead of just showing up, I wasn't quite sure what to expect.
I met some interesting people, and some too interesting people. Most were very nice and I ended up talking more than I thought I would since I was half asleep from getting up at 5AM.
The show went well... I was displaying an SX64 (playing Creatures 2), Astrocade (playing Muncher and Cosmic Raiders), Intellivision II with all the attachments (playing Bump n Jump, B17 Bomber, Thin Ice and a few 2600 games with the system changer), and a CD32 (playing Sleepwalker, Pinball Fantasies, and Super Stardust). Most of the responses I got were... "what the hell is that?!" while either pointing to the CD32 or Astrocade.
I managed to win a doorprize - Earl's boxed Odyssey 300 pong machine - I finally have a pong machine for my collection! Thanks Earl!
I almost had a bad note to end this on.. half way through the Astrocade overheated and crapped out on me. Even after I let it cool off for 30 mins, it still wouldn't fire back up. On a good note, when it got home, it fired up just fine.
Overall, great show!
