This is coverage of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo that I shot for the internet Nintendo collecting forum, Nintendo Age. Interviews include Marc Ericksen (former video game box art illustrator), Greg Pabich (current maker of Cheetahmen II), Gamemaster Howard Phillips (Nintendo Power legend), and I believe Ken House (Dig Dug world record holder), who is uncredited because I'm not 100% sure it's him.
Highlights include an explanation of why Megaman is holding a pistol on the cover of Megaman 2, how we finally got a copy of Cheetahmen 1, and why the world's first gamemaster wears bow ties!
