You know, when I played Guitar Hero I used to sit there and wish I had a time machine.  Jump back to the early 80s and make a laser disc based cabinet.  The hardware back then could have handled overlaying the sprites on the video.  The disc players wouldn't be constantly jumping around and seeking video, so they would have lasted.  Oh well.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Well I was at Walmart the other day and I noticed that they had cleared a bunch of shelf space and I saw guitar hero scribbled on a sign.  Pretty sure I read something about it coming out for the holiday season.... Guitar Hero Live?

I resisted until the fad was almost over, got one of the games in the bargain bin and I was doomed from then on.... went back and bought all the old games. 

Yeah laserdisc players were used for karaoke for years.... it seems strange that nobody ever though of adding the other instruments.

Well Fed Games

Yep, both Guitar Hero and Rock Band are coming back for current consoles. I as well am loving that all the old games and instruments are dirt cheap and easy to find at Goodwill, etc. (I am always a generation or two behind on consoles).
Completed projects: Pac bartop (Plug & Play), 30th Anniversary Pac cab (MAME), Point Blank (PS1), Centipede (arcade hardware- light restore), VS. Super Mario Bros (arcade hardware- light restore) Tetris Cocktail (SNES), Arcade Classics upright (60-in-1, then MAME), Multi-Raiden (arcade hardware). Pac Man vs.(Gamecube),

Working on: Pinball Re-theme, Homebrew arcade arena shooter

I've moved onto rocksmith.  I figure building muscle memory that translates to the real thing feels like less of a waste of time.  Unfortuneately, it's been packed away all year with the (stalled) house remodel.  I dug it out last week and am debating on hanging the guitar on the side of the cab.

EDIT: 2014 is much more use friendly than the original.

Yeah I got that one as well, but I never have time to play it.  With guitar hero you can just pick up and play, but with a  real guitar you have to re-tune every time and you need to be split out to an amp and if you do that you can't play in the middle of the night or anything.  Eh.... Not as much fun in the long run.

Bump it up!




I did a quick walk through of my current set-up recently. Only AD and the centi-milli-missile cabaret were purchased working (but both needed all caps, other bits and a scrubbing) rest were dead and dirty ass mofos brought back from the dead.

I inadvertently had some Les Paul & Mary Ford playing in the background when I filmed it and YouTube Picked up on 2 garbled tunes. Wanted me to consent to a bunch of BS ads and block the vid in certain countries. I just picked some royalty free cheesy blues music.


good day.

That's pretty classy man.  I thought my tetris skills were impressive, but that took some serious "tetris-ing" to get all of those crammed in there and still look nice.

Didn't you want to sell the Ms Pac Man Malenko?

If so, I wish I was close enough to buy it. :)
If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

I've now built two cabs, but have branched off into consoles. You could say it's a collection, but there is no rhyme or reason. Just when opportunities present themselves...

God wish I had the room you guys do!

I just have the Multi cade cab now but I used to have a home built 2 screen cocktail cab as well.

I also intend on buying a pinball machine shortly but I need a new kitchen first....

Oh I misunderstood, sorry.  You need to sell that thing then,  the pin is fairly terrible.  ;)
