Zapcon 2016 and After Party at The Grid (Blast from the Past)

  •  

    So this last weekend The UGeek Club asked a very important question. How do UGeek at Zapcon IV and The Grid Games and Growlers. Well let me tell you that this was my first Zapcon and it was amazing. I don't know exactly how many arcade and pinball  machines there was but lets just say a lot.

     

    Zapcon IV had great presentation with a mixture of very old school retro games and some from the 90s and up. With so many games to play it was hard to stay focused. But I had so much fun playing some games from my childhood like Smash TV and Bubble Bobble which are two of my favorite games from my past.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Mr Orpax and I played a lot of games and the atmosphere was perfect with dimmed lights and the sound of chip tunes coming from all the arcade machines. It really was nostalgic to see games that I grew up with. And seeing them now after so many years made me happy and I can thank Zapcon for doing that. 

     

     

    So after this amazing event at Zapcon IV there was a after party at The Grid Games and Growlers. The Grid is a barcade with a tron inspired look and feel. You walk into The Grid and you have neon lights everywhere and even the bar is all lit up. From arcade machines to over 2000 emulator games that you and someone can sit and play for hours and drink. This night they had some synth artist like Ethernaut which had a raw synth feel and sound. And Voidbreaker with a beautifully smooth and eccentric synth feel and sound.

    By far Mr Orpax and I had a great time at both of these places. And we give Zapcon and The Grid a UGeek Seal of Approval. Make sure to check both of these places out.
