Back again

So I decided to log back in to see if this account was still active, apparently it is. Since I haven't been on here for a while I guess it would be good to give everyone an update on what I've been up to, for the most part, working. When I'm not working I like to work on my pinball and arcade machines, I'm up to 8 pinball machines and about 14 arcade machines. I keep some in my "Arcade Room" and the rest in overflow space. I haven't played with my X360 in a while and do not own a PS4 or XBOX One since I don't play games as much as I used to. I know I suck. The last game I completed is GTAV, that is one series I will always go back to. My son plays more games than I do know, I expect him to be better than me one day.

Been A while...

Been a while since I've posted here. I've been pretty busy with a few things. I still play console games and the last gema I completed was Red Dead redemption on the 360. I've mostly been focusin on working on arcade machines and pinballs. The most recent arcade machines that I have picked up but didn't post about are: Killer Instinct 2, Mortal Kombat 4, Sega Super GT, Golden Tee 2005, Surf Planet, Neo-Geo 4 slot, Neo-Geo 2 slot, Attila The Hun pinball and a Williams Comet Pinball. I'm sure there are some that I'm forgetting but they come and go pretty regularly so it's kind of hard to keep track of them.

Another thing that's most recently taken a chunk of my time is MTG (MTG=Magic The Gathering). It's a pretty fun card game and can really pull you in and make you spend some money buying booster packs to try and get the good cards. That's about it for now. I'll try to update this a little more frequently in the future.

Home Arcade

Well it's been a while since I posted anything so in case anyone is wondering what I'v ebeen up to ( Doubt anyone has :D ) here's an update.

I passed Bioshock recently it's a great game and I'll have to do a 2nd run through as soon as I have a chance. Other than that my other main gaming focus has been on my Home arcade that I'm putting together in my garage. I spent this weekend moving and arranging all of my games as well as getting rid of a lot of junk. I have way too much stuff and have bought too many games.

If I used my garage for only games I would be okay but I also have an Olympic size weight bench that I like using. As of right now I might not be able to fit all my games in my garage and keep my games in there though I am working out a solution. In case anyone is wondering what games I have you can see a list here.

Well look who finally decided to show their face!

It's my best of 2007 Emblem! This son of a saggy breasted emblem momma dissapeared sometime around Feb 2008. He came back 2-3 levels ago for a day and then dissapeared again. Well I took a screenshot kind of like a family picture of him and my other emblems. You always want to get a family picture while you have everyone together since you don't know when the next time that will be.

Mortal Kombat II

So I bought another arcade machine. The game is Mortal Kombat II. I'm also working on an empty arcade cabinet I bought a while back. I'm going to have a modded XBOX in it running MAME. I have a bunch of Street Fighter II boards for my arcade cabinets and am pretty happy with my collection so far. I'll have to try and stop buying cabinets for a while though since there is an auction in May I'd like to attend so saving my $ for that is the best thing to do.

So Street Fighter IV is out

And it is an awesome game. One of the best fighting games I have played. It's beautiful and very enjoyable. For those that don't know I am a big Street Fighter fan and I have every single Street Fighter game made either in console form, emulator form and now arcade form. I love the Street Fighter games so much I bought an arcade cabinet (that has Tekken 3) and bought the SFII and SFII CE boards.

I guess that pretty much shows how much into fighting games I am. I guess once the real remake of Mortal Kombat comes out ( I don't consider anything after MK 3 to be a real Mortal Kombat game) I'll get heavily back into that series. Until then I'll stick to SF and handle all the noobs that started playing SFIV. I'll show them what seperates the competitive gamer from the casual one.

Why would they wait so long?

Why why why would Capcom wait so long to release Street Fighter IV? There is one arcade in Houston that has this game and they only have one machine and the game is projected on the wall for everyone to see the match. I have never played SFIV before so I wouldn't know how to do the EX moves or the Super if it's different from other SF games.

Oh well maybe I'll make the drive sometime this week or this weekend and try to get some time on the machine. I really do wish that SFIV was out already though. At least that way I could play as much as I want in the comfort of my own home. I can see why there aren't many arcades left.

So I finished an arcade stick for my brother

So I made an arcade stick for my brother. It took a while to make and I think it came out great. I would like to tweak some things on it but if I start making modifications to it now he'll never get his arcade stick. There will always be something new I'll want to do to it so the project will never end. Well I guess I'll give it to him this weekend.

Here's a pic.
