Guest Speakers


Jeremy Parish will be returning to the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo in 2020! The original classic gaming podcast continues its endless quest to explore the history of video games, one game at a time. From forgotten black-and-white arcade machines to modern-day remakes, Retronauts spans more than four decades of vintage gaming greatness!  Jeremy will be hosting a panel discussing the merits of unloved or underappreciated game systems.


Vinny is the creator of the Vinesauce YouTube channel which is home to video game corruptions, showcases of awful games, disturbing Mario and Luigi cartoons, original characters, and bizarre game glitches. He also has a popular Twitch channel where his YouTube material comes from.


Modern Vintage Gamer

From Developer to YouTuber – If you’ve ever used emulators on the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or even the Nintendo Switch, chances are you’ve experienced Modern Vintage Gamers work before. Modern Vintage Gamer has over 30 releases of emulators and home-brew across different console systems including the Nintendo 64 emulation on the Original Xbox –  which many said couldn’t be done. His popular YouTube channel, launched in 2007,  features stories of console hacking, trade secrets of the modding underground scene retrospectives on systems like the Original Xbox, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2/3 and the effect that the modding community has had on them.

8-Bit Guy

David Murray, known by most as the 8-Bit Guy, produces videos focused on emerging technology of the 1980s and 1990s. He is especially well known for creating “how it works” videos on the older technology.


Since 2005, the CAGcast has been a pretty silly podcast about video games and the topics that affect gamers. Hosts CheapyD, Wombat, and Shipwreck talk industry news, review games, supply game shopping tips and generally share too much of our personal lives. Giving new meaning to “Talk is Cheap”, the CAGcast is the official Podcast of the video game shopping community, CheapAssGamer.com

Join Cheapy D, Shipwreck and Wombat for a live recording of the CAGcast at this years Long Island Retro Gaming Expo.
