Re: Revival - Retro Event, 26th and 27th July 2013

Ha ha, Chris beat me to the post! :D Yes, as we always said this would be a community-driven show and we have been listening to the community as we are here now, as it's been 50/50 elsewhere too. It's not that drinkers were being shunned, but that in the same respect there are a lot of people who do...

Re: Revival - Retro Event, 26th and 27th July 2013

W feel that this event sits in the right place between a large event and social gathering, as although large, we have made it purely retro and are aiming it at the retro gaming community. In terms of size it is a little smaller than the first Replay but large enough to capture active members of the ...

Re: HISCORE 2012: Arcade Tournament 2-3 June in Manchester

Just to say it was a great weekend for both me and my brother Lee, who rather uncharacteristically was a big help to me and Mat lol, and we both managed to log very respectable percentages for a guy with a gammy hand and another with no gaming practice for years. Was great catching up with all my us...

Re: Replay in Manchester and Earlier

For the record guys, I didn't instigate anything but being one of the first announcers outside Replay and having a lot of neutral followers, it was bound to ruffle a few feathers. There's no damage to us cos it's simply an announcement and if anything there's a bit more resentment heading towards th...

Re: How much should I pay for a Mame Bartop?

Just checking in briefly as I got two minutes alone to myself! Hope everyone's having a great Christmas and got some great gaming goodies... Bub&Bob and Mainvein, we've got a load of compact models you may not have considered (thanks for the plug witchfinder!) so if you e-mail me at craig@turnarcade...

Re: REPLAY Magazine/Programme - what did you think?

Bought it, read it, liked it. Missed out on getting a proper programme from the show though, any way I could get one? I disagreed heavily with some of the game opinions in there though, possibly because I was a Nintendo fanboy back in the day. Streets Of Rage didn't compare fairly with Final Fight a...

Re: Replay Expo 2011 - Official Thread

I loved your SF4 cabinet, great design choice making it slim! I even had a few rounds on it with Justin from Electronic Dojo and he was impressed too! Just needs Sanwa OBSF buttons instead of the ones you had :wink: The flashy lit buttons were really for show; obviously the console fighter fans wou...

Re: Replay Expo 2011 - Official Thread

Thanks for the comments peeps. Helensification, at least we exchanged a few words briefly at the tombola stand if I remember rightly, and I did have fleeting coversations with others on my room fly-bys in the same way too (often bumped into Chris Wilkins and dropped a few words out, Mat Corne and th...

Re: Replay Expo 2011 - Official Thread

OK, so it's been a week now and we at Turnarcades have now overcome the fallout from Replay and finally settling back into things. For those that haven't yet seen them, our photo's from the show can be viewed on our facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.234485066615008.62270.1...

Re: Replay Expo 2011 - Official Thread (inc name badge reque

Hi folks - just a quick message here to you guys on the RetroGamer forum (I know you form a large part of the event), to say that this year's Replay show was simply superb and all of us at Turnarcades loved every minute. I personally have very few quibbles and it was great to be part of it. I would ...

Re: Turnarcades Arcade Machine Prize at Replay Expo 2011!

I've now added a link to our examples slideshow for anyone who is not familiar with our range, so you can see what to expect from each model. A few people have already suggested a compact/portable model may be best as it makes it easy for the winner to take home from the show and more people will ha...

Re: Turnarcades Arcade Machine Prize at Replay Expo 2011!

I maybe should have posted links to our various online sources if anyone here isn't a facebook friend of ours et, but instead I'm just updating our examples slideshow with many of our recent builds and will embed that later tonight.

Re: Turnarcades Arcade Machine Prize at Replay Expo 2011!

Actually, as we're not affiliated with the show in any way and are simply attending as paying traders, this is just a private promotion as other traders will be running. Our competition last year was not promoted as part of the show as others were so there should be no confusion, but I will withdraw...

Turnarcades Arcade Machine Prize at Replay Expo 2011!

Although the organisation and details of this year's eagerly anticipated Replay Expo in Blackpool are still yet to be finalised, you can be sure Turnarcades will once again be there with a bigger selection of demo machines to play including some prototype models not yet featured in our set range or ...
