BLU-RAY has been added! Experience the 4+ hour film in HD with Blu-Ray. The increased cost is due to the length of the film going on BD50 Blu-Ray, authoring fees and licensing. If you previously chose DVD you can change tiers and select Blu-Ray. It will take longer to make which is why we have a March 2015 delivery estimate. If you have any questions please ask. "Dear Mark, why is Vectrex best?" Mark - "Because it is."

$300 tier backers have their choice of DVD or BLU-RAY!! (we can't change the description but we'll ask you which you want when we send out the surveys, the size of the custom artwork remains the same.)

NEW! SPECIAL EDITION LASER-HYPER-VISION ALBUM SET!! This 4-banger disc set includes The Best of Classic Game Room: 15th Anniversary Collection on Blu-Ray and DVD as well as Classic Game Room: The Rise and Fall of the Internet’s Greatest Video Game Review Show on DVD! All of these discs come packaged in a 12”x12” old school LP / Laser Disc style case with a full color, 4-page insert featuring photos of the Intergalactic Space Arcade, CGR equipment and Viral Dog!

Relive the glory days sitting on the floor and admiring the album art with this stunning design fit for framing, staring at and talking to (it won’t answer, it just sits there looking cool). Each first edition printing of the Special Edition Laser-Hyper-Vision Album Set will be signed, dated and hand numbered by Mark Bussler. (does NOT include a Laser Disc. We tried. We really tried.)
