Our home retro-gaming party!

Hi!

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. In a really touchy moment, someone's kid, who was an experienced Half Life gamer, asked what was going on with using Portal song as an "Amiga tribute" which gave us the chance for giving some History lessons

To be honest I didn't care much about the CD-32, but I was paying a lot of attention to that X68000

AWESOME!

A wonderfull collection of machines there, I was quite taken by the Arabian MSX to be sincerely honest!

what was the name of the game that it was playing - the shoot'em up one with the floating islands - looked interesting.

It's not so clear in the edited video, but that was actually the SNES. As there were less monitors than machines they were displayed around the closest screen in a totum revolotum way.

The console was equipped with a Super Wlid Card device and the game was Axelay.

pfft, the CD32 is much nicer

I liked the BBC Micro's "Mistake" for every error. Beats "Error" any day!

Hope that comment was a joke.. The CD32 is a steaming pile of shit compared to the X68000.

Wonderful event.

Why do you have A520 plugged into RGB port of A600, when the machine has in-bulit TV modulator? Is it broken? Or any s-video hack?

Nope, its owner just wasn't aware the 600 has its own RF modulator until I told him ^_^' When trying to turn it on the PSU happened to be dead, anyway, so we couldn't use it at all :-(
