Just wanted to share a vid of our last retro-gaming meeting at Madrid. It was originally meant to be held at some public place, but that couldn't get worked out, so it was reduced to a friend's reunion at someone's house where everyone would carry as much good old 8/16 bits stuff as possible.
And it was a hell of fun! I would like to encourage people to make this kind of activities, more oriented to be local informal meetings, as a way to make a retro-enthusiast's life easier between the real big events.

I attended with my FMV equipped CD32, which was used for playing a lot of games and also watching some VCD clips I made for the ocassion, includding Eric Schwartz's Still Alive animation.
