Title: :: Meeting "Warming The Theater" inside the Nuno's Lair / May 2013
Post by: DarthNuno on May 27, 2013, 12:07:09 PM
In order to thanks the close participants to my Galaxian(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) saga, I wanted them to be the first ones to 'officially' try the monster in a kind of 'warming session' or let's say a 'pre-meeting' before the official opening of the Nuno's Lair V3 to come! :)
So, it was also a good opportunity to power on most of my playable games and see if the game room explodes or not...  ;D A good test before the big day in other words.

A ton of pictures to come... so stay tuned guys.

Two honest comments:

1)
Personally I would remove that snake from the Q*bert. It hurts the beautiful lines of that brilliant cab and " good wine needs no bush".

2) God, DK looks great in red ! :)

Such a great afternoon, very tired at the end of the day, but hey...

..we were there !!!

I agree belike : V1 and V2 were already such great experience.
V3 is at least twice much more exciting. You can't take yours eyes
of these beautiful cabs all around.

It's even weird to see V1 as the workshop place.

So again, thank you so much for your warm invitation.

A few pics quickly taken with my phone (hey, once you have the luck to be there, you have to make a choice: enjoy the games and friends... or take nice pictures ::)).

Thanks again for the invitation, buddy, it's THE over-awesomest coolest bazingest place for any arcade lover and it was a (zolgear) blast to meet you all once again.
Also if you followed the evolution of the gameroom build and almost every cab restorations on DLF, like I did, you can really measure the time and passion involved in this lair.

I don't think Bruno realize how magic this place is, it's like when you cook a meal, often you don't fully know how great it tastes because you spent so much time preparing it  ;).

I still have pixels in my eyes from this visit and I'm 300% reboosted to work harder on my machines.

(also special thanks to Christopher 'Pag Man' to make a "Kung-Fu Master game loop" look so ridiculously easy, and for sharing his ninja tips with me... I'll put your lessons to good use, sensei!)
