Just got home from the “Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo”. Thanks to the coordinators of this epic arcade/pinball expo, we had another amazing weekend packed full of celebrity panels, events, and games. I was able to participate in an 8 bit discussion panel, and hang out with none other than Billy Mitchell himself! Check out this weeks podcast (which was done shortly after returning home), where Mike receives a special message from Billy, along with a recap of all the events I was able to attend. Even though I live no further than 25 minutes from the actual event, we chose to stay at the Marriott the event was held at, and essentially all but forgot about sleep, as the events were scheduled all day and all night … we even got up early Saturday morning to watch some vintage Saturday morning cartoons.
This week we talk about the Southern Fried Gameroom Expo in segment 1, Oculus Rift in segment 2, and of some retro arcade discussion in segment 3.
We are go into retro collecting prices, collecting, arcades, PC gaming and Oculus!

A finished result of a very long and expensive restoration. One of the best looking machines of all time – TRON! Was found originally as a Two Tigers conversion in a warehouse about a year ago – was completely stripped and sanded down. I’m bringing it to SFGE (Southern Fried Gameroom Expo) in 2015, and counting on Tron champion David Cruz to put up some big numbers on it.
Late update on an ongoing Tron Restoration project – one of the most spectacular looking machines of all time. Sorry for the sucky video quality, I had to turn the brightness on my phone up all the way since I have very little natural light in my basement. This guy was rescued from a Warehouse in BFE Georgia in December of 2013. Was a rough conversion from Tron to Two Tigers. Here’s Part 1 of it’s journey back to being a respectable Tron.
This week we talk more about Microsoft’s mixed message. Mike landed a couple more retro games for the collection. Mitch started a new Pacman stenciled machine. What we love and hate about Madden 25.
