Operation Nerd Dungeon is go!
« on: September 25, 2017, 07:25:14 pm »
Ive wanted a nerd dungeon for years, And living in a 2 bed semi it was never really that easy to make the room for one but the Ms finally came around to my way of thinking!

Well she thinks its her idea but ive been working her over for years *giggidy*

The plan is to have my 2 retro pie consoles (NES/SNES & Genesis/32x) and a free sat box hooked up to the 32" on the wall.

My Neo Geo MVS bartop and my soon to arrive (i hope) area 51 up in there.

Also a old CRT with N64 and PS2 hooked up to it.

Plus the leather sofa bed as is customary for when you need to get away from the Ms for the night lol

I also intend on doing some creative decor which she is helping with, the start of which is in the pics!

Will take a few weeks to get it fully functional but so far....

Agreed.  I always thought that Man Cave sounded like a gay strip club.

I feel like the term "man cave" is cheesy as heck. It sounds like a condescending term coined by someone trying to be cute when describing a place where "big dumb guy stuff" goes on. Neanderthal stuff. Never been in a cave with TV's and couches.

I will as things progress :)

Unless of course nobody else cares in which case I will just have to chill and enjoy my efforts,
Rather dissapointed nobody has mentioned the storage draws or the wall being laid out and focused on the term man cave instead  :dunno

I like the simpleness of that name. It's a room where men do manly stuff.

And I noticed Tetris right away... ;)

Might I suggest “The Blue Oyster Club” as an alternative name?

All good-natured ribbing aside, I hope you enjoy your space. It’s very important to have a space to call your own.

Well Broke back mountain and the Blue Oyster club defo sound like a gay bar LOL

Glad you noticed the Tetris cabinet, I would of liked something taller to get another row in but they jumped from 3 high to 5 :s

The blue tape on the wall is actually reflective (like used on police cars etc) and I am basically building a pac man maze on the wall for a Vinyl pac-man to sit in along with some ghosts etc.

Ide like to find a neon sign saying Arcade or something to go on the wall to but so far strugling with that!

Loads of ideas but as usual time and lack of funds hinder progress!

Dude, relax, no one called anyone gay. I just offered another name on par with Man Cave. I’m sure the people who frequent the Blue Oyster Club also think they’re doing manly stuff. No judgement. Personally, I’d prefer Blue Oyster to Man Cave. At least it’s a theme.

I managed to dig out my old 64 today ready to get it going!

Ive had to order a s-video lead though as mine only had the olde skool aerial connection.

The reset button has also jammed so ive had to order a driver to strip and fix that but otherwise the console looks pretty good!

The game carts contacts were filthy though!
Doubt they would of played but I have cleaned them up with some contact cleaner and now looking like new again :)

Next job is to clean the actual cartridge cases as they are also filthy!!
