Some peeks at the Alumni Dinner:
The Penthouse floor of the Riviera – slightly more palatial than my room.
C’mon, you know you want to see more of it.
Game maker Garry Kitchen talks about what CGE means to himself and other classic game programmers.
Keith Robinson of Intellivision Productions bequeaths the Burgertime hat to John Hardie en route to giving his own speech.
Video game world record scorekeeper Walter Day scores a few points with the other alumni.
Al Alcorn, the guy who did the engineering legwork on such things as arcade and home Pong, the Atari 2600 and more, is awarded a bronzed 2600. Beats the heck out of a certificate for a free turkey!
Admittedly, this next one isn’t CGE-related, but cool nonetheless:
Mayhem brought me this wondrous thing to help me face up to the fact that I’m a geek.
Mayhem also stuck around when Ubik and Sothy dropped by my room to shoot the bull for a while. And now that I have a face and voice to associate Sothy with? It’s all actually that much funnier. Oh, Mr. Flibble was in tow too. And I just now realize, as it’s one in the morning here, that I completely and inexcusably forgot to get a picture of him staring down the Face of Boe. 😆
Tomorrow: the show itself!
