:: Eurocade 2014 / Darth Nuno's report ::
« on: September 14, 2014, 06:11:50 PM »
And here we are, already the fourth edition of the...



...and this year, I'm gonna bring that little kid with me.  :arrow:



After almost four hours on the road, this is it! The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision...



...an amazing location for an arcade event like this, as you'll see in the next pictures!  :-*



After unloading that cab' with the help of the effective 'cade2014 crew, here's the main entrance...



Fix It Felix Jr is now in location. This 'Nintendo' row starts to looking very good, and we expect more of them... impressive!



I'm already very curious to check the second main area, which hots some Japanese curiosities, such this Cho Chabudai Gaeshi  :arrow:



After ChrisChris, it's my turn to figure out the rule of this ...game?  :!:   ;D  :arrow:



Ohhh oh!!! See that monster...



Wait... many players (4), bass boomers, huge red lights flashing, dual screens...no this is not a Galaxian Theater, this is...



I'll go back on that one l8ter guys, now I'm like a kid inside a huge toys shop, and I'm first attracted by things I don't know... like this cabinet?  :arrow:



It's a PC and/or Xbox One? game called Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime  :arrow:



The game is a frantic co-op platformer-inside-a-shooter, in which players work together piloting a neon-drenched battleship to save space animals, explore the galaxy, and fight evil robots. Players must dash back and forth between the ship's control stations, manning turrets, lasers, shields and thrusters in order to dodge asteroids, blast enemies and liberate planets. Deep space is a dangerous place, but at least you don't have to face it alone!


The cabinet has been (very well) built by Sjaak, and the game is really addictive.  :)



Back on the main area! AndrĂ© -who already mastering the ipad version- is trying FixIt ...*upright* version!  ;D  :arrow:



Speaking about FixItFelix Jr, here's the developer of this *Arcade Movie Replica* version of the game... please welcome Sjaak (yes, also the builder of the 'Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime' cabinet)  :) You did a great job, I really enjoy this game *arcade tuned*, thanks again for this, in the name of the FFIJr arcade cabinet owners  :)



Let's have a walk and check the game here and there...



Marco playing Galaga  :arrow:



The 'inseparable' Pac Man / Galaxian cabinets ...





...heheh ... Mortal Kombat II ... I will reveal secret files l8ter in the topic  ::) ::) ::) ;D





Let's check the Nintendos row or so...(yes, yes, TobiKomi is also a part of Nintendo  ;D)











Against an other wall, see how these beauties shine in the dark  8) :-*  :arrow:









Did you ever seen that Space Invaders version, huh? What a beauty isn't it  :-* :-* :-*  :arrow:

What's this?

 :P :-* :P :-*

It's the end of the afternoon, while the Eurocade team is still '@ work', we are heading to the hotel.... already full of German!  ;D



Tonight... "Ich bin ein Berliner"...  :)



Ah OK, other countries are represented...



After an hard day, Italian food and few beers... it's time to take some rest before the big day.
When I told you "It's Not Only A Matter Of Games"...here's a good example ... I'm sharing a room with one of my brothers in Arcade... sorry Chrischris... I've to publish this 'unusual picture'... where's the arcade related stuff in there? huh? Nowhere, I know!  ;D  ;D  :arrow:



Saturday the 13th

After a nice breakfast with the company of Marjan, Mr & Ms Sjaak... here we goes for THE big day!

First, I'm happy to beat Jochen on his own game... 26510 PTS... but for how long?  ::) Anyway  :P  :arrow:



It was a great dual, Jochen! What a beautiful cab'  :-* :arrow:



One of the numerous Space Zap effect?...  ;D  :arrow:



Got a special guest today... Sonic himself! Too bad it wasn't Barry 'Sonic 1992' under that suit  :-\





The girl who created CENTIPEDE did it very well... it's a really 'girls catcher' game... here's Yulia (Ms Valentin27) in action... she's really good on that game and she really wanted to increase her high score (4th place in the table if I remember well)  :arrow:



In the same manner, could we say 'Fix It Felix Jr' is a game for kids, huh?  ;D  :arrow:



While this time...



The entire COIN-OP LEGACY team is playing on DariusBurst  8)  :arrow:



What a great idea to use all these video projectors to fill the walls with all these console games.







OK, back in 'our' area  :-*  :arrow:



Like the good old days... people playing... people watching... people waiting their turn..







And now a couple of pictures that could be titled 'Women play our arcade games'... ;)  :arrow:

After -for the second time- eating in that same Italian restaurant (where Zamoth stole my camera for this picture btw)...



...let's go back to the party! Close to the entrance, these huge screens... Nintendo vs Sega :



...speaking about Sega, here's Sonic playing Sonic... all is perfect in this world of arcade gaming!  8)  :arrow:



There was a guy who reproduced the entire 'Sound & Vision' building inside the game MINECRAFT :



...but this is WHERE the magic happens!  :-*  :arrow:













Vond vs Berzerk!  8)  :arrow:



Robotron rulez!



Bela wonders how to master Pac Man...  ;D  :arrow:



... where the high score is set by Zam?oth?  ::) :)

I had the chance to play that ingenious and very fun GUIDED MISSILE ... before some graphics problems :? Anyway, black & white games rulez! :arrow:



DOT!  :-*  :arrow:





Zamoth mastering Spy Hunter!



Impressive skill! I've never been so far in that game than him... and I discovered unseen levels, such the one where you drive on a road...full of ice!



I let Chris to comment that one  ::)  :arrow:



Olisan in action...



...and what about this cow Girls on Boot Hill? I told you, everything is perfect here  :)  :arrow:



Felix the Kid!   :arrow:



DK jr, eventually back from dead, after replacing its power supply!  :)



Hey? What a great idea...



... fixing a GO-Pro camera on a moving cabinet!  :-* I'm curious to see the result!





I've seen Bat968 finishing the game... they are definitively good players @ COIN-OP LEGACY  8)  :arrow:



It has been said a hundred of times but... this is the nicest Star Wars cockpit I've ever seen! And see how the vectors are glowing like hell!!!! Misssa like it!  :-* :-* :-*  :arrow:



...and this Zaccaria Vanguard cabinet has definitively something special  :-*  :arrow:



Bods (from UK) comparing Chase HQ vs SCI  ;D  :arrow:

Great 'party' games here  :arrow:











Mr & Ms Sjaak  :arrow:



But here's what I enjoyed the most...



What a lovely cabinet  :-*  :arrow:



What a lovely game  :-*  :arrow:

...the party continues...





The King Of Spies   8)  :arrow:





















I like the way FIFJr is played here  ;D  :arrow:



What's this?  :o :arrow:



...this could not be him?!  ???



Holy Christ, AndrĂ© is playing... Mortal Kombat?! Hell yeah, well done Bela!  ;D



10 print "Let's play arcade games"
20 print "Let's watch people playing arcade games"
30 print "Let's talk arcade"
40 print "Let's have fun"
50 goto 10




I'm sadly have to leave this Saturday evening... with the help of the 'cade team...



...Felix & myself are leaving the place...



...but not totally, once the cabinet loaded in the car, I'm back to deliver "EUROCADE / RGE Flea Market" stuff but also to say good bye. Unfortunately I have not seen everyone for a last 'au revoir'...  :-\

What can I say now? Well this Eurocade was just PHENOMENAL!!! Dawn, this is the kind of meeting that should occur more often!
Congratulation to the Eurocade team for the awesome job they've done to make this happen! I really appreciated the games selection, but most important I really enjoyed to meet all the people, chatting, joking, drinking (but not too much). I can testify that everyone had the big smile!
Far more than chatting over a forum, nothing can't beat a real meeting "IRL"  :) You can already put my name in the Eurocade 2015 thread to come!

It looks amazing, some superb cabs you guys have taken along. Darius Burst is awesome 8)

I love the Lucasarts display case, it contains some of my all time favourite games and it's great to see them all together.

Looking forward to more pictures :)

Thanks Bruno, great report and pictures.

I have one of the artwork of that Space Invaders that is worth to be shown IMHO :)  (I will attach it)


Was a pleasure to meet you again though we couldn't talk a lot. Unfortunateley when I decided to give "Fix it Felix jr." a try you and your cab had already left the building :(
