    Default Arcade machines at CGE

    Is it possable to find out what machines are going to be playable at the show? Are there going to be more than last year ?*crosses fingers*

    Im struggling to get my b/f to agree to go with me, but he seemed into playing some sweet arcade machines. Unfortunately he likes newer stuff exclusively so I was wondering if anyone knows if there will be some 3D cabs or a Neo-Geo machine....?

    Yeah, a list of games would be cool... I was wondering about the Neo Geo also... I've got some carts (not a whole lot), but if there was going to be a NG there, I could bring some if there's something that I've got that others would want to play. Of course a 6 slot would be preferred so we wouldn't need to switch out any carts, but a 4 slot would be fine too.

    I wish I could bring some of my arcades, but it'd be pretty tough to sneak them on the plane :P . But I could easily pack a few NG carts.

    Oh... and if your b/f is into newer games, I'm guessing that there'll be another MAME cab or two again this year, so he might be able to find something he likes on that.

    Did you just say you were bringing a Dragon's Lair sandwich? I don't speak German...

    Lessee... you can guess about what machines are going to be there by the machines that have been there in years past. Maybe a Dragons Lair, possibly a Cliffhanger (I LOVED playing that cab), maybe Frogger, Centipede, DK, Punch-Out!!!, Mappy, possibly a Tempest (there was one last year if my memory serves but it wasn't functional... maybe it was 2003...).

    Take a guess, it just might show up.

    I would have had a stroke if Tempest had been working...

    Crystal Castles and Tempest running in the same room?

    I would be happy if only they had Crystal Castles set up again this year...but alas I can only dream...

    About the MAME cabs...
    I never even touched them last year due to long lines. It seemed like the only crowded area was around those cabs. :/ But my memory is a little hazy so what do I know

    For me, it's the same as PhillyClassic 3:

    I completely forgot about the MAME cabs, probably because they were just so packed with players by the time I got there. There's always the X-Arcade booth too, they had Robotron 2084 playing for the entire show, if I remember right, and whatever other titles they had running.

    Crystal Castles... Tempest (if there's a working cab)...

    Use this to translate what Evil Otto is saying:

    The words get a little messed up during the translation, but you can get an idea of what he's talking about.

    Ahh, thanks for the heads-up... sometimes it's still fun to guess though. I love guessing at another language and seeing what I come up with.

    I still want a Dragon's Lair sandwich.

    If EvilOtto can read English, I ask that he please post in English. If he can't post in English then use the Altavista Translations yourself. The incoherent babble is getting annoying.
