I've gotten a bunch of emails asking for me to put up some stuff from my collection, not to mention people wanting to know how I got some of this stuff, so I'll use this topic to post a new pic each day along with a bit of history on the stuff.

Untitled

I bought the Japanese Neo Geo arcade cabinet in 2000 for around $900. After owning the Neo Geo AES home system and getting tired of paying the $300+ for some of the games and then finding out how long the load times were on the CD systems, I decided to bite the bullet and buy an MVS arcade cabinet. The games are cheaper plus you get that authentic arcade experience. I replaced the stock joysticks and buttons with Sanwa JLF sticks and Sanwa OSBF-30 buttons. Worth every penny too. Currently, I have Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Samurai Shodown II, Blazing Star, and Viewpoint in the 4-slot board inside the cabinet.

The Taito Egret II cabinet I bought about a year ago for about $1200 after wanting to own a good shooter cabinet for a long time. You can easily rotate the monitor from vertical to horizontal and back which makes it great for shmups. I also replaced the buttons and stick on this one, but I went with the Seimitsu LS-32 stick due to it being so much better with shmups, but I stuck with those silky smooth Sanwa buttons like the ones on my Neo Geo cabinet. Currently I have Cave's amazing shmup Muchi Muchi Pork in this cabinet.

Wow, that's impressive...I don't mean to offend you, but I hope I don't get into games that much. They take too much of my life already (not to mention money :P). I'm not big on shmups though, I don't much care for high scores or that extremely high difficulty that comes with them, though they can be fun from time to time.

You'd have to go a long way to offend me. :) But in reality, after being married this long, you gotta have something to hang on to. Games are as good as anything. :P

You basicly own a store. Really cool. How much do you think you spent on gaming so far?

Why can't Metroid crawl?

@Corbie: That is very true, I'm actually engaged right now, but I have tons of stuff to 'hang' on to. I play guitar, I'm going to university this year, I'm going to be working when I get off for my summer brake, and probably have to do some good old wood splitting on the Christmas break. So, yeah...

Now you are one hardcore gamer. I can't really say how many people buy these kind of arcades, other than you.

Uhhh, wow. I could never get into arcade games myself, but just imagine the looks on people's faces if I did have some. Are these cabs new or old?

They're both used, but I restored them both. Repainted them, new wiring, new speakers, new coin slots, new sticks and buttons.

Yeah they worked fine, I just wanted to fix them up. The only thing the Neo Geo was missing was the MVS Board. The Egret II came fully functional, but the stick was a Sanwa and they don't work real well with shmups. They're better for fighting games.

How much did you pay for those sticks and buttons? They couldn't have been cheap.
