Gamepro does a podcast on California Extreme

Some CAX goodness

When I was a kid, I enjoyed reading the game magazine Gamepro. In the days before the internet was in everyone’s home, it was the only place I got news on the video game world (I even sent a letter in asking for a tip on Metroid 2 for the Game Boy but by the time they got around to publishing it I had already figured it out), at least until I found GameFan Magazine. Back then Gamepro had a one-page spread on arcades under the title ‘Hot at the Arcades’, but they eventually gave up on that and their current website generally ignores them as well. So it’s a little surprising to see a podcast on arcades on Gamepro.com, although it’s about California Extreme and not so much the current state of arcades.

You can listen to the podcast here, if interested.

    I’ve been to Cali Extreme once. It was fun but far too loud and noisy for me to go back. 🙁

      Just take some earplugs next time. I did that at the last Amusement Expo as it felt like going to a concert at times.
