so I heard that there will be the old quarter arcade games lined up down the hallway from the Dealer Room out towards the Lucas Oil Field entrance. I am excited about this, I, like most people 50+, I would say grew up playing these games Friday & Saturday so I am anxious to see what they have out there. I hope to see Tron, Galaga, Tempest, Gorf just to name a few.

Heavyyyyyyyyy Barrel! 

And Elevator Action. 

I would *not* like to see Gauntlet or Gauntlet 2 there...i have games to run and sleep to sleep and food to eat, and I would do none of those things if either of the Gauntlets were there.

I suspect it will be old school classics from the early 80s, but my wish list would be:
APB
Paper Boy
Iron Wolf
& Bride of Pinbot

The longtime gencon arcade that takes generics for free play normally has  a lot of really good late 80s/early 90s multiplayer cabinets such as TMNT and The Simpsons Arcade.

I can't really confirm any specific machines....although.....if you DON'T want to see a Gauntlet Legends machine, you maybe shouldn't go over there.

Please also do not forget that room 140 will be filled with arcade machines on free play, for only $4 an hour.  The hallway is just a nice little taste. :)

Ahh, Gauntlet. If they'd only do a live event of it. It'd be like the best of both cosplay and LARP! :D

It'd be a colossal pain in the ass picking up your boffer weapon after every throw though...

Why pick them up? Just carry 200 double bladed boffer axes.

I always did really good on Rally X.  Catchy music too.

Do-do-doop-do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop, do-do-do-doop.  .  .And so on.

I would love to see the D&D arcade game or it's sequel. It's been years since I played a good beat em up and that was a good one.

Don't they do something in that vein with True dungeon?

Iron Wolf?  I must have been thinking of the ground breaking stand up coaster at Six Flags from the 90s.

Of course I meant OPERATION Wolf, where you get to shoot that cool Uzi with grenade launcher that had rumble action before that was a thing.
