Sidequest Expo, formally PRGE Video Game Swap Meet, was a GREAT time to be had by all. It’s a great way for so many of us to get together and hang out for the weekend in beautiful (and sometimes weird) Portland, Oregon. Here’s a look at what I saw, what I grabbed, what I ate, and where I went.
I was invited to Long Island Retro Gaming Expo in Long Island, NY which happens to take place in the Cradle of Aviation museum so while there’s gaming everywhere there’s also a ton of flight stuff like planes, shuttles, and more. Super cool. Here’s my weekend adventure of what I saw, what I ate, what I took home. Great stuff.

The Legend of Yeah Yeah Beebiss I
Long ago there was legend of a new video game that had no screenshots, no reviews, no advertisements — nothing. Just a quick blurb in the back of some magazines saying it was for sale. It was never released. This is a sequel to that mythical game.

Contra was a pioneer in the run ‘n’ gun genre and beloved by many. I look at some of the earlier Contra games and rank them among themselves.
We didn’t get a ton of wrestling games on NES but we did get 9 here in the United States. Here’s a look at all 9 wrestling games for NES and a brief look at a 10th that only came out in Japan.
We had a great time at Renton City Retro in Renton, WA. It’s probably the only retro game show in the entire northwest in 2021. Several from all over from Seattle to Portland and beyond came by to scoop up great deals and visit friends we haven’t seen for the past year and a half. I found a few cool things I show in this video.
Most NES games are either side-scrolling platformers with many that are vertical-scrolling games. There’s only a handful of isometric games so I thought we’d cover all I could find and do a video on them and where I rank them based on how important the isometric view is.
