latest retro themed products.

Fame annex at the Riviera. The console section will feature 50 consoles
covering the history of video games as well as a huge selection of LCD and
LED classics for play, which are seldom seen at expos!
In between the shopping and gaming be sure to check out the movies and
panels that CGE is famous for. We will be screening movies, which will, in
most cases, be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker! Attend
screenings of classics and new films such as; Video Craze, Gameplay, Once
Upon Atari, King of Arcades, Gamer Age, and a sneak preview of footage
from the upcoming The NES Club. When the movies are not rolling, the rooms
will be filled with attendees listening to panels and presentations from the video game
industry alumni that CGE is famous for! Rock out with bands such as 8 Bit
Weapon, The Brisitsh IBM, Compute Her, Evilwezil, and prepare yourself for
the comedy of Keith Apicary.
Be sure to set aside time to walk through The Video Game History Museum.
