Gameroom Junkies #64 – Gen Con, Pacific Pinball, & VHS Glory

Gameroom Junkies #64: Gen Con, Pacific Pinball, & VHS Glory

It’s been a busy month, but we’re back and ready to tell you all about some geeky adventures. Preston attended his first-ever Gen Con and gives his take on “The Best Four Days in Gaming™” which included some serious time playing Killer Queen. Next, Patrick dives deep into a retro video game magazine to share opinions of what some of the best designers in the biz consider to be the top Atari games. Then Preston shares about his time on the West Coast playing pinball with the San Francisco Pinball League at Free Gold Watch and later at the Pacific Pinball Museum. As if all that excitement wasn’t enough, Preston also landed a score off of Craigslist that is a VHS collector’s dream come true.
