One of biggest electronic gaming gatherings in the region, the Billy Mitchell, was selling "Noob Sauce" with gamer inspired flavors like "Leet Sauce" offering "Pur3 Flavor."
The shadow cast by Mitchell in the 2007 movie , the official electronic scoreboard of all electronic games, was present and was keeping track of many accomplishments. Operating a table adjacent to the tournament area, he sold copies of his video game score books and the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2008. Dressed in his signature referee shirt, Day happily shook hands and signed autographs throughout the weekend. He was keeping an eye on Rally-X, a classic arcade game from Namco with a Twin Galaxies high score that has been unchallenged since 1983.
The video game museum was quite a spectacle to even the best versed historians. In addition to expected appearances by the likes of Pong, the original Nintendo Entertainment System, and Atari hardware, there were machines like the Super A'can. This is a game console from Taiwan launched in 1995 that only ever saw 12 games released and put its manufacturer Funtech into debt so badly it ultimately sold its stock for scrap in the U.S. All machines on display were playable and many had a selection of games to sample.
Also on display and for play were some very unique games, such as The Three Stooges Pinball. This was a machine custom built by an electrical engineer from Oshkosh who actually built a soundboard from scratch; though it's completely unique, it looks and plays exactly like a machine you'd find in an arcade or bowling alley two decades ago. There were also dealers selling replica controllers for classic machines and one dealer who had unreleased original Nintendo games and imports built onto new cartridges that will play in any NES, bringing new life to a console that hasn't had a new title produced in nearly 15 years.
Walter Day concluded the convention by mentioning that though he'd attended many other conventions, but "nationally, this is one of the best."
