For two bucks, I wouldn't be able to pass up R.O.B. either. In fact, now I'm jealous. =<

I'd love to have a NES and Jackal, Mega Man 3, Ninja Gaiden and Super C... I really miss all those games I used to own eons ago...

DarkfireTaimatsu - Yeah, I couldn't leave R.O.B. behind. I'm sure he's just going to be used as a decoration, but every robotic operating buddy needs a loving home.

stevetothepast - There were mods galore there. I was playing a game of Ms. Pac-Man arcade cabinet and instead of a cherry coming up on the screen, a coca-cola can appeared instead.

goblyn - It was a good one for sure, but I don't think they'll ever top the shocking "Custard's Revenge" game screen cake from years ago.

Julio - Just go to a flea market or eBay... you can get an NES system with all those games and more for a fairly low price these days.

Man I wish we had that stuff here. I still love the TMNT 2 game but the arcade X-Men game with multi monitors for players was pretty cool too

Just another reason to relocate to SC.

I didn't know there was an arcade version of Warlords. That game, a 2600, and 3 friends is a party waiting to happen, or a domestic violence/disturbing the peace conviction.

Fucking Robotron. Every time I see a cabinet I have the uncontrollable urge to play it. Then 5 minutes later I get enraged and realise why I hate it so damn much.

WOW! Simply, WOW! Can't get over how beautiful all the cabinet art and marquees. You can tell those games are lovingly cared for and /or restored. <3 Crystal Castles was especially lovely looking. :o But then again that has always been a very nice and unique cabinet art!

But.... but.... no X-men '92?! :'( Still looked like a fun time, but really... no X-Men '92?? :o It's one of the greatest 6 player games ever! <3

RoG, I have a question.

Was there a game there called "Crazy Climber"? I used to play that way back when. It was a guy climbing a building using windowsills and people threw potted plants on him and open windows could be slammed shut on him and if he fell he would bellow O-OH NOOOOOOO!

Good times

@SaturnKnight & JustAmi - I know! That was my favorite multiplayer game EVER in the arcade. The one in our mall (that no longer exists *weeps*) used to put the games up for sale every Christmas and I used to badger my parents to buy it for me *laughs* Never did...
I wish that version would have gotten converted over instead of some of the goofy X-men stuff they released for the consoles.

Wow! Some great finds! I discovered a Ms. Pac-Man game at the Mt. Airy Flea Market, but I didn't buy it. Now I'm kind of regretting it.

I'd LOVE it if there was such an event on the east coast too.

And I was tickled to see a Cliff Hanger cabinet. As we all know, they used a little anime for this laserdisc game. You may have heard of it too...Lupin III :-)

I have a bad feeling that's the sort of event I'd leave without any remaining disposable income.

@ JMFabianoRPL:

Amen, buddy; I would at least be content for there to be a retro game event in Texas, where I reside.

And Lupin III rocks!

Good stuff, Nice cabs, they were a little bit too retro for my taste but fun nonetheless. Good article!

I was going to say, that Cliff Hangar cabinet has a familiar character on it...

@Pentegarn, yes Crazy Climber was a fun game. However, one CAN go wrong with Space Ace Rog. I HATE those Quick time event games.
