Before PAX opens, Peter and Danny take a trip to retro & import gaming store Pink Gorilla, and experience Seattle's surprisingly healthy retro gaming scene first hand.
Did you enjoy this video?
What a great little store.
Great video. Nice store. I wish we had stores like that here. There's like on retro games store here and they charge even more than average ebay seller with shipping.
I have been surprised at how popular retro gaming has become. Even in my small city of only 200k people, there are multiple small used game shops with impressive selections of retro stuff. Also on my local Kijiji there are lots of ads for retro stuff.
The prices here however, they suck, and seeing the prices in this video further confirmed that. Around here pretty much anything in cartridge form is minimum $5, usually closer to $10. I sorta started a collection but quickly gave up because the prices are just too high for me.
The only way to get stuff cheap here is to be out there all the time hunting it down at garage sales and such where people are just trying to get a few bucks before it probably ends up in the trash. I just don't have the will to do that, plus all the gas wasted when most days you will find nothing. Actually not even sure that works anymore, those opportunities might have vanished some time ago.
Nice to see stores like this still exists and thrives :)
And funny with the N64... still have mine hooked up :P Would REALLY like to get a SNES also though
Paperboy! OMFG The GREATEST game ever!
Driver sober, or get pulled over!
oh wow, so my city isn't the only one in the world that thought orange cabs were a good idea.
Sea-town baby!!! #206
class lil shop where i live in the uk we have a simular shop just its a lil bit pricey cause of the huge gamehops
Wish GameSpot videos didn't buffer every few seconds for me. I just don't understand why, I can stream youtube videos 1080p no buffer, I can't even properly stream medium quality videos here.
Seattle looks so cool.
there's a store like that by me but the prices are insane..
This makes me miss megabit. We need it back!!
anti gamestop :O , we hav ea winner!!!!
Was looking forward to this, you have to fully exploit Peter's expertise in these matters
Check out Super Smash Video Games in Ballard. They're a newer branch of a popular Tacoma used video game store. Lots of stock of used games as well as newer ones.
Good content on Gamespot? Of course it comes from Danny O'Dwyer and Peter Brown.
@Gamer_4_Fun I have the same problem most of the time. I reduce quality to a minimum but still I have to pause and wait a couple of minutes to let the entire video buffer (more if it's a longer video like review or gameplay). :(
@Rain3004 this was ALL Peter...
