Revival Event 2014: Overview

IMG_20140809_100714

I was planning to write more blogs during the time I was at Revival this year. However, the WordPress app has a hard time publishing on 3G, which is a huge pain when there’s no “real” free wireless. This year Revival was at the same location as last year, Dunstall Park in Wolverhampton.

I got in on Friday afternoon to help Mike set up his booth for RetroGaming Roundup. @Random_Dave got to show off his new game, James & Watch: Arm, he originally had it as a DreamCast game, but got to port it to Linux at the last minute and had it running on a Raspberry Pi. The game is pretty much like Fire, but you control the 6 year old Mike being thrown about. Continue reading

Retro Revival Live Blog for Sunday

[liveblog]Okie doke, it’s Sunday Morning, and Revival has begun again. I got prepared and put my business cards out, and I took some RetroGaming Roundup leaflets and put those out too. So physical spamming of other people’s web sites too! LOL. Today, there will be an event for Bedrooms to Billions, and there will be a Super Smash Bros tourney. So I’ll keep everyone updated.

Retro Revival 2013 live blog

[liveblog]Well I got onto the train at 6am and I’m crazy tired. Not only did I my tickets last night and find them at 1am, but getting on the train was crazy as the doors slammed onto my rucksack (backpack to my American readers). So yeah. Doors eatting my bag and practically left the station a minute after arriving! I’ll be posting more as I get there.

[liveblog]12:54 It appears I can’t figure out how to use WordPress’ Live Blog functions, hopefully it’ll update, I will have no idea though. Anyway, It’s pretty damn awesome, it’s loud and fun. What’s been awesome is to be able to play the games I want to play, even though it’s not as big in size as PlayExpo. I played a fair amount of Phoenix and Scramble without needing to wait a minute. Unfortunatly there’s no Galaga, well there is, but it’s in a MAME cab that isn’t working.

What’s awesome though was that the RetroLords held a Warlords tornement, and guess who’s in the finals! ME!!!! WHAHAHA! SO awesome! I picked up a few games too, though as you can imagine most of vendors here are selling at a high price, which is predictable being an expo and all.

Enjoy the pictures I took!
