Introduction

Winter is coming, as is the bad weather and riding a bike in the rain, wind and snow is not fun! So I figured I needed a hobby/project to replace my weekend bike rides until the weather gets better, and that project is building an Arcade Machine :D

Like this one, but different!

Everyone seems to be building them these days, so it's nothing special really and mine probably won't be that much different than anyone elses, but I've always wanted one and I have a big empty space in my spare bedroom that needs filling ;)

Another part of my project isn't just to have Arcade games on (using the MAME emulator like most cabinets run) but to have EVERY game for EVERY games system from Pong up until the start of Saturn/Playstation days. I don't know if it's possible yet, but it'd be pretty cool saying that I have every game that came out before 1995! Well, maybe 'cool' is the wrong word, but you know what I mean :P

This site/blog is mainly just for me to keep track of things and for me to look back at in years to come and think "Wow, what a crap job I did" or "Oh yeah, I remember when I started that thing and never finished it" which is probably quite likely to happen ;)
