i built an arcade!

2017-08-15 08:10:35 by KungFuSpaceBarbarian

I spend most of my time sitting behind a computer. So building things with my hands isn't really my forte....

However, I really wanted an arcade machine in my house, so I built one! Wanted to share some pictures. I've got an assault rifle controller for FPS games, got my Xbox controller hooked up for games like Mass Effect, and got the classic arcade joysticks for arcade games.

One of my coworkers gave me 216 old games and I set up an emulator so I've got a massive backlog now. Time to play!

You can see all the photos here: https://kufuspaba.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/i-built-an-arcade-machine/
