Now the question should be . . . "Who here bought this ?"

Kids these days!
Why in my younger years I would have worked an extra 2000 hours in the tobacco fields to save up for that fine piece of equipment.
I dont blame him for not taking any less, why I would force the gentleman to take more, and be dam proud to pay it.

(Notice it is making its way towards Zapcon)

$1,400 for those of us that are wondering why you clipped off the price.

It's almost within the realm of reason....

Gotta throw Zelda or Metroid in the title because nothing says "I have no clue what I am doing" like an arcade cabinet based around a franchise that's only had console releases.  ;)

I've never played an arcade cabinet where my elbows could rest on it while holding the joystick.
It looks not only like it would give me tendinitis I bet my forearms would stick to after they started to sweat from being pressed against the panel.

At least it has a carrying handle for when you take it to your friends house to show it off.  Seriously looks like someone recycled a plywood coffin to make it :)

That's the $18 joystick, buttons, encoder special from Amazon installed on that thing. I actually kinda like the joystick.

Was facilitating a raspberry Pi-Jam a the Library. Dad came up to show me a photo of his Pi-cade. It looked like a large  not yet painted Vegolex. Would fit right in here

I asked, what didn't you just use an old PC? He said it was EZ to find the right rom set. Any way I now get why some people hate the R-pi. I may still love it, but I'm not building full size cabs and sticking a very compromised option because I'm to lazy to fig your out a real MAME setup.
