There was a lot of different games on a lot of different systems. While we were there I spotted the following; Sega Master System/Mega Drive/Saturn/Dreamcast, Nintendo NES/SNES, PlayStation 1/2/3/4, Atari 2600, Sinlair Zx81/ZX Spectrum, Commodore Amiga 1200, Nintendo Wii/64/Gamecube, Xbox 360/One and PCs.
Sadly these weren’t set up.
I had a quick game of Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hero while the PC network was being set up.
It was my first time at the TFM Soundworks venue. It’s a nice, but hot, venue.
Trying to get a LAN game of Counterstrike 1.6 set up.
Street Fighter 2 (SNES), FIFA 14 (360) and Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii). Smash Bros was the most popular, and people even brought their own Gamecube controllers along to play it.
Staff from CEX brought along a Playstation 4 and Wii U, and were giving away stickers and posters to people who played them at FIFA 14 and Mario Cart 8. Conor and I had a game of Mario Cart, and I despite the fact I use to be good at the Wii Version he finished four places ahead of me.
There was also Tournaments scheduled on the following; games Goldeneye 64, Mario Kart 64, Super Mario Kart (SNES), Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii), Pong (Atari 2600), Duck Hunt (NES), Mario Brothers (NES) Head to Head, Street Fighter 4 (360), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (360), Mortal Kombat Ultimate (N64 ), Pokemon Stadium (N64), FIfa 14 (360), Halo Reach (360), Call of Duty Black ops II (360), Street Fighter 2 Turbo (SNES), Tetris (Playstation 2), Bomberman (SNES), Marvel vs Capcom 3 (PS3), Mario Kart (SNES), Guitar Hero 3 (360), Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour (PC)
As Conor was under 18 and we had to leave at 9pm which was before the Tournaments took place, so I don’t know how that went. It was also sad because I really fancied my chances at Command & Conquer. There was also live music from local Chiptune artist Critical Strike and others. Here’s a video on the end of his set;
This was the first event, so everything wasn’t exactly perfect. There was no Commodore 64, and a few of the systems didn’t seem to fully function. It still was a good night and I’ll keep going while they are on.
