I haven't updated my gameroom photos in five months, so below is the current line up. Anyone else have any updates or photos to share?

What is Fairchild Channel F?
My local game shop (danny veghs) is having no interesting till 2010 on pool tables, foosball, etc. High quality stuff.

Thing is, with the economy the way it is, do we spend money - or save and save for the rainy day that never comes and then we die and our children get that money and live the life you wanted to dammit

I've been a lurker for a long time on many of the threads here. My project has a very different focus than most of the traditional style game rooms. I wanted to build a room focused around video gaming.

It is a relatively small space (12x12), so I had to pick and choose the type of games to include. I decided upon systems that gave me a high degree of flexibility like MAME and PCs, so I could frequently update my games as my tastes change.

The following are the highlights:
A MAME machine that I built a few years ago.
A Megatouch that I bought used
5 Dell PC's - for computer gaming
Xbox 360
40" Samsung LCD
A Roku Brightsign to power 2 monitors that display game demos
A programmable LED sign

Cool use of space paddles27. How do you like the megatouch? I've been thinking about picking one up. Does it get boring? How do they hold up?

Actually I don't use the Megatouch very much...The MAME and Xbox setup gets much more use.

Wow...some gorgeous rooms out there. There's a lot I want to change with mine. For one thing its not a "comfy" area, in that you can't lounge around and watch TV. It's more a poker/billiards/darts room. It's the basement and I went with Slate flooring with in-floor heating.
But all these other rooms has got me thinking of making some additions. Anyways...here's mine;

Nice ass room but cheap crap chips! You need to invest in some clay or ceramics.

that's an awesome space! But I see your point about a lounging area. I don't see a way to fix that based on what I'm looking at because every bit of space appears to be used and every item in there gets used as well. Even the 2 tables. Maybe just super comfy poker chairs and call it a day?

I love my "arcade".

I have a sega stand, which I am going to convert to MAME one of these days... I already have about 4,400 games on my mame computer.

And a williams flash.

I also have a bally "eight ball" that has been converted to super tournament domino's. But, it has some battery acid damage to the boards, and I haven't gotten to it, so it stays out of the basement until its right...



I just picked up williams pinball hits for the Wii. I usually don't like pinball "video" games, as they don't have the "feel" of a real pinball. But, I am very impressed with this game. The weakest part is the flippers, they don't feel as "real" as normal flippers, but overall I give the game a 9 out of 10. Playing Rudy on "funhouse" felt just like the real thing. Plus all the games are set to "factory" specs, so you don't have all those issues with arcade "cheating" that many operators do to their machines just to make more money off of them...




my backyard "game area"... We played "capture the flag" last month.


My under $2,000 130" Home Theater

Been lurking for a while and wow what great rooms you guys have. I just finished putting on the cabinet doors in my poker room last night. Here is a quick cell phone pic. What do you guys think? Too much? There is a fridge going in the empty space to the left. The air conditioner is also going to get a fresh coat of black paint. This was a old cookhouse.

If you want to come by my house and see/play my pins and get an intro to them, the upkeep, the various costs/types of pins, shoot me a PM. I'm off New Years Eve, New Years Day, and Sat. and Sunday.

Unless you are rich, I'd not buy from TNT. Those prices are outrageous. The pins are more than 1-2k overpriced in most cases from real world prices.
