Some more cool Zapcon 5 stuff planned...

I'm working on some additional animations in After effects for my channel for some segments with y'all.  I'm gearing up to do it a bit different this year...

So here's how it works:  Anyone can volunteer to participate in an exclusive Delusional's Arcade "Last Credit" episode at Zapcon 5.  ("Last Credit, the series" is where you pick a favorite game of yours and play on 1 credit.  We examine the physical game, controls and delve right into game play).  It's your chance to make a BYOAC or KLOV appearance on the channel!  It's one of my more fun episodes to shoot.

Last Credit - "Jungle King" by Taito
! No longer available


Last Credit - "Crash" by Exidy
! No longer available


Here's the game list of games (so far) appearing at Zapcon this year:

Participants will receive an "Interviewed by Delusional" achievement from Yotsuya.

If Rampart is there I'd do a video if you are interested. I'm decent at the single player mode and it gets pretty strategic and difficult in later stages. I think it's a highly underrated game.

Thanks!

It's on the Zapcon list, so fingers crossed we'll do it!  (Not sure if it's the trackball version or the joystick version though.  Edit:  Just checked my video footage from last year and it's the 3 player trackball version that was there).

Rampart is also one of my favorite games, which I'm pretty good at.  Who knows?  Maybe we'll do a single and two or three player co-op game while we're at it!

We can do the Last Credit videos after the group photo on Saturday.

The joystick version of Rampart should be loaded into a catapult and hurled at a stone wall.

I loved the trackball version as a kid. I haven't played it in a long time so I don't know how its game play holds up.

It's "Last Credit", not "Last Place".  LOL.

If things go as I think they will, there will be a trackball version of Rampart at ZapCon.

Please note a few things..

1. Many of the badges are still the same, but the image or style has changed. If you earned it last year, you can earn it this year again.

2. Last year there was a fun blow up when the parent of somebody who had their picture secretly taken for the "Inspected by PBJ" badfe contacted me and complained about the photo of his daughter. I totally get it. So I will not award the "Inspected by PBJ" badge unless you have permission from the person to take their picture. It's not true PBJ Creeper Style, but again, I get it.

3. This year's fashion Choice are Jams - style shorts. Wear your brightly colored multi patterned 80s shorts for the group photo! I will also accept 80s style corduroy OP shorts, but please make sure your balls don't fall out of the sides like they used to back then.

4. I'm really excited about the Stunt Cycle challenge. A local collector is bringing two of them this year, so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to try to earn that achievement.

5. Remember, for the high score challenge, you can either put BYO as your initials for the number one slot on one game, or put those as your initials in a top 10 table on three different games to earn it.

6. One of the dudes coming from out of state, Alpha-Tron, is an extremely generous guy. He's been known to give people multi meters, actual game marquees, and other things just out of the goodness of his heart. This year, we might be providing them with some moon pies to hand out in honor of Bob Roberts. If he gives you something, whether it's an object or a moon pie, let me know so you can earn the badge. Also, offered him a drink or hook him up with something. He's really a super cool guy.

If you have any other questions, post them here, but in a nutshell, that's how it's going to go. It was great fun last year, looking forward to continuing this tradition with you guys.

The girl was underage.  Honest mistake,  and as a father myself,  I get it.
