Retro Gaming Night At The Gaming Zone

90's Style Gaming Meetup!!!

We will be hosting another meetup at The Gaming Zone.

Enter will be 5$ for all day.

We recommend Bringing games and systems to play on.

So IF everyone has a good time this will become a monthly meetup.

We ask if you plan on bringing a gaming system to let us know so we can make a list of systems and games for people to play.

    The good: I had a good time playing the "old-school" games of my younger days, especially Super Street Fighter 2 for the SNES. I also learned how to play Bomberman, Super Smash Bros., and Mario Party. The bad: Without nametags, and having not been to a meetup in a long time, I didn't recognize most of the other attendees. Also, there wasn't enough table space to play Forbidden Island: Pony Edition - this is a very minor issue, though, since this meetup was for videogaming and there was plenty of that (and on systems I was familiar with). The ugly: I wanted to stay until 11p, but my body wouldn't let me. I left at 8p because I needed a nap. It was a lot of fun, though. Hopefully I'll be off when the next one comes around (and better-rested beforehand).

    The summary: Great time. Old-school fun. We should get nametags.

    Is it OK if I bring Forbidden Island: Pony Edition, or is this meetup for videogaming only?

    turns out my friend is gonna bring a Dreamcast, and I'm not sure whether that's retro or not, so uh, prepare for that!

    April 5, 2013

    • Jonah

      Dreamcast is relatively retro. It was the 1st console in the same generation as the PS2, XBox, and Gamecube. Came out in like....1999 or 2000.

    Hi I'm new to this group.
    Know it's only two days away, but is it possible for me to still attend this meet-up?

    April 4, 2013

    • Aaron W.

      Sure! That's no big deal. In fact, I usually don't say if I'm going to any meetup until like right before it starts. :P
      Oh, and welcome to the group! ^^

      April 4, 2013

    • Anthony

      Thanks

      April 4, 2013

  • Jared T.

    Aww freakin' yeah! Between this and an open house at my former school, this gonna be good!

    April 4, 2013

  • Jonah

    I guess I could bring my Xbox360.......not really retro....but yeah...
    Soul Calibur V, yo.

    April 2, 2013

  • Andy C.

    I have a Dreamcast, would anyone want to play that?

    March 20, 2013

  • Jonathan T.

    Cool this may be the last meet up I am going to since I am moving very soon, but whats better than gaming and fellow bronies? I can bring a system and some games all I have are fighters though UMVC3, SSF4, Mortal Kombat, Blazblue, Skullgirls, and such so if any one likes fighters then I would so be down to play some!

    April 2, 2013

    • Grae Parker E.

      Where are you moving to? There may be a Bronie group there.

    I may end up reprising my appearance from December, but I may be bringing a few people from Vegas with me!

    March 29, 2013

    • Sabrina

      Yay! Hopefully all my boys will come again! ^.^

      March 29, 2013

      I can't stay too long Sabrina, sorry

      April 1, 2013

  • Daniel I

    Got a N64, Gamecube, PS2 and maybe an NES depending on whether I can get it to work or not. Gotta dig through and see what old games I have.

    March 31, 2013

  • Sabrina

    Maybe. Might have other plans now >.<

    My favorite system is/was the SNES. I don't have one anymore, though. I play on an emulator nowadays. It's been a long time since I've used an actual SNES controller.

    Wish I could go, but I live all the way out in northern phoenix by the metro center and have zero transportation v_v

      Ditto, seems the majority of meet ups aren't really in Phoenix... it's unfair for everyone else. Why can't they make an agreement that maybe everyone should meet up in central phoenix sometimes? Lot's of people go there whether they live in west phx, northern phx etc. I haven't been able to go to any meet up because everything is so damn far away. :/
      If you ask me, they should mix it up, gas is expensive yo. (Thank Celestia comicon is nearby... I might finally get to meet some of you bronies >>)

      March 28, 2013

    • Grae Parker E.

      We are always willing to host meetups in new places.
      If there is a place that you think would be a good meetup feel free to get in contact with me and i will look into that location.

  • Mr.Brightside

    One more thing how is it from 12:00 to 11:00?

    March 20, 2013

    • Jonah

      Noon to 11pm?

      March 20, 2013

  • Mr.Brightside

    I'll see if I can make it. I really love hanging out with everyone sometimes it's killer on my wallet but it's ll well worth it. and if I do come I'll probably bring an R2-D2 style Xbox 360, PS3, or my super Nintendo. as for games i'll just bring a hand full og them super mario brother and street fighter 2 are the only one i'll be bringing for the super nintendo though.

    My interested are peeked from he description, I'm not sure if I can go depending on time and such, but I most certainly have my eye on it!

  • Anjila

    Haha, the owners were wondering when the bronies would be back! Have you guys already reserved the store or this day? Don't want it coinciding with the Smash tournaments. Also, I don't have any retro games, unfortunately, so I'll be bumming off of anyone that brings a system. Unless you don't mind me bringing any "modern" systems, then I can bring my Wii60.

  • Trojan H.

    I'm in!

    However the only "retro" game console I have is the N64 (with Mario Party 2 and 3, Discord's favorite games).

    March 2, 2013

    • Grae Parker E.

      If you are willing to bring it please let me know.
