Friday 23rd of April : day 0

I am wondering which cabinet I'll take with me this year?  roll eyes

Well, we are in 2010... end of this year, the release of Tron Legacy  Kiss Ok, Deal! TRON  Kiss  arrow



Nature vs Technology



Foxxx from gamoover asked me to bring him back some drugs, very hard to catch in France... Ok man, I'll take maximum risks to bring you Dr Pepper cans  Grin ...



...now hidden under the Tron  Tongue  arrow



Let's skip the road trip, here we are ... 650km later : Welcome to the French town called : Vierzon

It's around 7:00 PM ... Here's Iro and Foxxx, who are unloading the generic Jeutel 16x9 (Foxxx's machine)  :



THe Iro's A.B. Cop is already in the our gamoover stand, let's unload the Tron... welcome to Vierzon  :fleche:



The Tron is switch on... Iro's already playing on it  Smiley



OK, we got now all the cabinets : Jeutel 16x9 (Jamma/MVS/Naomi ready) Sega's A.B. Cop & Tron. Ok, the stand will a a little bit light(cycle?) this year... but wait... you'll add more 'goodies' on the stand. We'll add them tomorrow, the rest of the gamoover staff will arrive this night very late, so let's wait tomorrow morning for finishing the stand preparation...

So, let's check what we have here, inside the expo, before the 'public opening' tomorrow morning  Cool

What's this cab' ? Williams design 'a la Joust/moon Patrol'... but ... VARKON? Never heard about this video game?



This is NOT a video game, this is ... a pinball  shock  arrow



... and this is an ULTRA rare thing... only 90 worldwide!!! Let's tale a maximum of picture, because this is the first time, but probably the last time I see this for real :



the pinball itself... Impressive!



OK, it's late... tired from the trip, the stand preparation... and also... it's time to eat  Roll Eyes Let's join the INSERT COINS for a improvised Barbecue, in the Vierzon camping  Kiss

Fred, Aspic, Foxxx, Mioux and Reloaded  arrow



Iro, Aspic and K2KL





Very nice evening  Kiss It's time to go to sleep! Tomorrow will be the big opening day of the exhibition!


Saturday, the 24 of April : day 1

Let's plug the games  :fleche:



Arghh! The A.B. Cop is not playable ...  Cry   Cry



High Cobra want to 'score' on Tron  ^-



We got also 2 Vectrex on our stand... XY screen / Mine Storm & Scramble... let's say it 'Arcade Related'  Tongue Grin :


The VARKON is ON! Well, still not possible to try it yet :



Random pictures :













Hey... this one appeals me  Roll Eyes  arrow



DEFENDER of course  Kiss Sounds are the same than the video game!



This DEFENDER pinball is for sale... but 1400 is just too expensive... too bad, it would be a nice one to have, close to my Defender cabinet  Cool

A nice customized cocktail done by K2KL. It may be a perfect prop inside the Nostromo ship (Alien)  Kiss  arrow



Q*Bert ! Same than last year... but unfortunately not playable  Undecided :

Kids on Tron...


...and on the Jeutel :



Cobra, Foxxx and Wapat' trying pinballs :



Persecutor from Insert Coins with a very useful Jamma test setup :



Let's continue the walk. A famous French singer  arrow



Wonderful background...



...and decoration  Kiss  arrow



Cute   Cool  arrow



Argh! I'm a big fan of the Space Invaders Pinball... but ... I'm under a Curse! Impossible to play this one at Vierzon! I really need a Space Invaders pinball at home  Twisted



If you're looking for parts... good luck  Undecided  arrow



And here's my famous *padawan* ... like the previous year, his objective is to defeat him on Tron  Grin  arrow



- "Your powers are weak, old man..."

- "When I left you, I was but the learner, now I am the master!"

 Grin

A nice deal done by Aspic, this complete Triforce System (Namco / Sega / Nintendo). It's supposed to be working. Let's try on the Jeutel :



 Ghost black screen... and ... smoke  Ghost ...ouch...



Because we don't have enough electrical power on our stand (all the 30 minutes  arrow power down !!! Not good at all for our cabinets), let's "stole" some power from an other stand...





Back on the Vectrex. Always someone to play them  Cool



While High Cobra is setting the 'real time' broadcast flux...



... I make some advertising for Dr Pepper... and ... Barry's Arcade Spirit with my authentic "Yesterdays" cans protector  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



As promised, Rage got for us this 50cm...Thanks  Kiss ... Very useful to show my young padawan the "roots"  Cool PONG on 2600  Grin  arrow



...or let's say Yars' revenge ? (my favorite 2600 game by the way)  Wink  arrow



Wapata playing the Vectrex :



A 'cow boy' dance event :



Darth Nunette told me she was dancing with them  Roll Eyes Arghh... I do not have any picture of that  Roll Eyes Grin

Sunday 25th of April : day 2

Already the last day of this great week end.

I'm playing Defender, while 'Xevious' is playing the Laser Cue :





...Defender... Zebass is now playing on it. But why the hell he didn't play my Defender cab during our last meeting in the Nuno's Lair? mhhh  Roll Eyes Tongue Shame on him!  Wink



High Cobra... still increasing his hi_score on Tron  Cool





Yeps... but the problem for him is... I'm also increasing my personal one  Grin  arrow



Outside, the big parade starts... bikes...



...but also cars...



...Hey, I recognize this one  Wink  arrow



Good week end for Foxxx :





Nunette... at Insert Coins  Wink  arrow



Fred from Insert Coins is doing a great score at Wonder Boys...



It's not his record (about 500.000)... impossible for me to beat him on this game.



An awesome thing : A real time 45T vinyl burner  arrow





Back on the Tron :





I love this pic :



Tron... long hair ... gamer attitude ... looks like a bad 80's picture ... you learn fast my young padawan  Cool  Cheesy  

It's Sunday, end of the after noon... a little bit tired  Cheesy  arrow
 


It's not the case for them  Tongue  arrow



The brand new Super Street Fighter 4 on 360 :



Nunette plays Duck Hunt! It's a Retro Gaming party here!  Kiss



This is the end... here's the Tron all of fame  Wink :



A new visitor... it was under our cabinets  Cheesy :



Thanks to Rage for the fee TV... perfect size  Tongue



Let's load the Tron. I'm happy because the game has been played all the time during the whole week end. It wasn't happened... since somewhere in the 80's  Wink Kiss Kiss Kiss



...and this is it! It was a great week end, like the previous year  Kiss It was nice to share the space with FlipJuke and Insert Coins  Kiss

I hope you'll have more arcade games next year  Wink Anyway, thanks to all for bringing help, food, games, drinks, hi score challenge, nice talk.... see you next year  Kiss Kiss Kiss
