Had to google him, never heard of him!

Weird ass quote though!!

However fear not yot!

Completion is near as once my desk grommets arrive the olde crt & console unit shall be completed.

After that I am just waiting on the nod to go and pick up the “crown jewel” to go in the corner.

Though I must admit I am dreading carrying it up the stairs.....

I'm pretty sure Patton is referencing the same public service announcement from the 80s that I dimly recall involving a similar scenario with anthropomorphized mice.

Well bar the crown jewel I am calling this project complete.

The bits finally come to finish my console station and so I finished it up today.
The only problem is the TV I had set aside for the purpose is DOA  :angry:

Luckily I have a little grey one which is working fine until I can find a slightly bigger black replacement.

So heres my modified console cabinet with NES, SNES, N64 and PS2.



So me n the Ms been having some fun with Duck Hunt tonight.
Its funny really the console is older than my Ms but I have been waiting all these years to play Duck Hunt with a Blaster and I wont lie I rather enjoyed it LOL
I could never afford one as a kid and Mum would never buy me one!
Here we are 25+ years later and I finally get to play!!  ;D

Managed to get a replacement TV, 20” and black.
Pretty good picture quality to once it warms up :)



Also fixed the Scope, Not exactly sure why it was not working but the battery contacts were pretty corroded so I stripped it down, cleaned it all up inside and polished all the contacts up and now working again :)

Still no news on when I can pick up my new cab though :(

Totally, for sure. Fish and snakes are practically the same animal. Ask anyone who has studied snakeology of fishenomics and they'll tell you.

Make your arcade sign look more like the Mario flag. Just figure out which Mario you want to use. I'm partial to the first one:

A Holy grail (of mine atleast) showed up on my door step today :)



Took me a bit of time to get it working, had some screen rolling going on to start with but seems ok now :)

Its also had some kind of mod done on it but not sure what exactly.

Still I got it at a good price and its working so ime happy :)

Never was a big fan of Sega. Sonic was fun (though it's way to fast for me now), the rest I actually don't even know. SNES all the way back in the days!

Ive always been a Sega fan boy.
Sonic was great, But I also love Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Road Rash! :)

I just need to aquire a Mega CD next but that should be easier to get than the 32x was!

Though I have much love for the SNES to.
