I attended a retro video game convention at my local football club in Walsall this past Saturday with my nephew, Jak (Notsoretrojakko). Revival: The Rivals 2017 featured MANY traders of all kinds of weird and wonderful retro gaming goodness.
There were also panels featuring people from various eras of gaming, plenty of old machines set up to play on as well as live tournaments of games such as Street Fighter II Turbo.
I found some VERY nice games too, so it was a good day all round!
Those games are the focus of this video...oh, and I WON A THING!
Don't know what it is yet but I WON A THING! :D
NOTE 1: At the very end of this video there's a black screen with the sound of a crowd in the background. This is meant to be footage of me and Jak rummaging through some games but for some reason the footage decided not to render along with the sound. Don't know why this happened but, oh well...the moar you know.
NOTE 2: The Sonic & Knuckles Mecha Madness Comic Book/Figurine set i bought for my fiancee, Lindsey. :)
NOTE 3: Yes, one of the traders had a PlayStation 3 Debug Console, labelled as TEST. If i'd had a stupid amount of money i'd have bought it. No, it doesn't run standard games but would makes for a nice collectable for anybody into PlayStation stuff. Not something you see every day so i snapped a photo of it.
NOTE 4: Jak came away with a SNES and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. He is truly learning the ways of the force. I am proud of you my young apprentice. :)
