The Portland Retro Gaming Expo has been around for eleven years celebrating classic video, arcade, and computer games for friends and families alike. I had the chance to attend their most recent event in October 2016. Amidst the ka-chings of the pinball machines and the Pokemon theme songs blaring in the background, I had the chance to interview Ian and Hannah of Queen Designs, Rick from the Intellivisionaries podcast, Nick from Peara's Premium Products, and The Gaming Historian.
