article imageClassic Gaming Expo gives Vegas some class

By Aaron Robson     Feb 23, 2007 in Technology
Dial the numbers on your Intellivision controller and reserve a plane to the city of legitimized neon thievery
Prepare for ranches filled with decently-priced women, funnels you can hurl your savings into, and a drunken gas-gobbling murder-frenzy in the passenger seat of Al Alcorn’s Humvee. Ok, so what if you had to Google Al Alcorn just now to find out he was the mega-celebrity visionary behind the overly-complex and utterly confusing Pong. Your brain will dissolve and leak from your hair follicles when you arrive at the Riviera Hotel in Vegas on July 28th or 29th.
Because you and possibly Alcorn will be there for this year’s Classic Gaming Expo. You’ll play old things and new things, plus you might have a profound technological epiphany with Steve Wozniak or Jay Smith. They've been known to show their glowing craniums at these retro rituals, and they've gotta be coming this year. Who doesn't like to dump away money in a Nevada desert?
It is your lucky day all classic gamers, now you can relive the glory days of when it all started at this new shindig. I love the fact how companies still use the games that started it all and released the ideas knowing the people will by them. I hate the fact that they keep doing it every other month with a new arcade classics game library for the consoles.
When you walk into a store, and see the game section, you are guaranteed to see at least five arcade libraries for each console, and I think that is stupid. I think rather than putting them all on different discs, it should have been put onto one disc so people don't waste their money buying all of them. I think it is a money trap and the sad thing is that it is working.
