(chuckle) thanks. Built that from scratch using measurements of a Defender cabinet. I extended the control section to accomodate all the buttons, etc. Then covered the entire thing in black Formica so it's virtually indestructible. Took a long time to build, but I'm delighted with the result.

My favorite game every, KINGDOM HEARTS (series)
Most played, and 2nd favorite, the pokemon series.

@Greasespot / Mame Cabinet: It's crazy awesome. Now, I'm hoping we can find a way to integrate a new game in the arcade at the Mall of Louisiana: "Poppin' Music"

It's like Dance Dance Revolution but FOR YOUR HANDS! Needless to say I like rhythm games

I'm partially responsible for the Pop'n Music machine at GameWare. I built that arcade back in 2004! Also Stephen (the manager) is my best friend and former roommate. Small world.

Yep, usually a beard of some sort. I love that guy. Xlom3000 knows him too, from the DDR days.

I remeber playing original Mario Brothers at a convenience store in St. Albans, West Virginia. Super Mario was at the convenience store at the road into our subdivision, on a Play-Choice 10. I was the only kid in the neighborhood who could do the "turtle trick". Also had Gradius and Contra (yay Konami Code), Excitebike (boo), Pro Wrestling, I don't remember any others. After beating SMB on it, I turned to Pro Wrestling. loved that.
