Guys I'm just posting a 'Save the date' for the RGC 2013.
The RGC 2013 will be held on October 26th and 27th. The RGC is a retro gaming convention in France (Meaux in the near of Paris).
You will be able to see tons of hardware and software all in free to play. But also take part to a retro gaming tournament of three games (1 one player, 1 two player versus, 1 four players).
But We will also have a conference on the history of video gaming, presentation of projects, and special stands as we do celebrate quite a few anniversary this year.
That being aid I would like to see more foreigner at our convention. This year for the AC we got 7 foreigner out of 70 participants (10 % of the total).
That is why I'm posting this poll in order to know why you would come or not.
If you wish to see more here are a few videos.
Baroudeur - on Hector (The one player game tournament)
Windjammer - Neo Geo AES (the two player tournament)
Micro machine (the four player tournament)

I'm Guillaume (aka Arethius_RGC) born in Paris - France - in 1980. I'm video game collector since the age of 15. Before I was not allowed to have a video game console.
I came to this site via the Cdi-interactive.co.uk Forum
My first console was the Nintendo NES then I got Atari Jaguar (which remains one of my favorite) then I have sold my console to buy others, in 1999 I started the collection.
My ambition as a collector to have all video game console with at least one game I like on it.
My favorite consoles Atari Jaguar, CD-I, Playstation One, Sega Megadrive.
My collection upto date is more or less :
- 50 gamings systems
- 900 games
- 150 accessories
- 200 others items (t-shirt, pin's, OST, poster, books, ...)
But I'm not only a collector, I'm also play an active part in the Retro-video gaming community in France.
In 2002 I joined a Atari Jaguar community in France and together we organized the first Jaguar Connexion (JC) then we organised 5 of them until 2006. In this year we founded the Retro-Gaming Connexion Association (which I am the President) and we splitted the JC in two conventions :
- the AC : originally an ATARI based convention, now a retro video computer convention
- the RGC : a global retro gaming convention.
Now we organise five conventions per year:
- the Mecha Gaming Convention: a mecha themed convention with a Steel-Battalion lan-party (last year 16 steel battalion), but also Virtua On, Iron Soldier...
- the AC : the retro video computer convention with its coding party (code a game in 24 hours) .
- the Balades de Congis whih are the open door meeting of the town we are laocated in.
- One musical game evening (in July this year) Rock band, guitar hera, DJ Hero, but much more.
- the RGC in october.
But we also have some other product such as T-shirt, manual, and games. Our latest and most ambitious project Another World on ATARI Jaguar (to be release soon).
Right I'm finished. Sorry if I borrowed you with my advertising but I'd like to have more strangers on our conventions. Besides forgive me if my english is faulty.
I hope to have good contact with you guys.
