I will do something close to this project and I like the no need for power tools. My favorite games were Galaga, Centipede, Samurai showdown , everything SEGA, and MAME. Thanks bud.

Jane Smitherson says:

Sorry but those cabinet are way over priced and they don't look like real arcade cabinet. They look like IKEA arcade cabinet. You're better off finding a real use cabinet gut it and rebuilt the internal.

Robert Warf says:

This is awesome. I didn't know this existed until now. Was thinking I might have to get an old MK cabinet and use that. Thanks for the upload. Hope you're still enjoying it!

Could get a monitor and connect it to Retropie

Doug Winn says:

Would love to get one where I can play the original Punch Out and Super Punch Out on

Leo Freihofer says:

Great video and selection of an arcade cabinet. Was looking into the Arcade 1up cabinets but they only come with 2 to 12 games and they are so tiny. For 2 or 3 of them I can go the Rec Room route and play thousands of games. It's really a no brainer.

One thing that's nice is their uprights are in two parts. So if you have to carry it up out of a basement (to move for example), you can remove the top and move the bottom and top separately.

nice video im building a mame laptop bartop arcade with 3,200 roms in it my favorite arcade games are mortal kombat, the Simpsons, contra, marball madness, paperboy, teenage mutant ninja turtles and galaga

AP AP says:

Mortal Kombat 1, sf2 Champion Edition, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Gaiden, Aliens, Alien versus Predator, Rastan, Golden Axe Death Adder, Altered Beast, Bad Dudes, and Astayanax. I would definitely say my favorites growing up.. it's tough to get the full experience of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because that was a 4-player game where each joystick controlled a specific turtle.. I always get to play as Leonardo

Krys Slusher says:

I bough my 32 inch sit down from them I love it 🙂 with Emulator edition… great company

The Deal Dork Reviews says:

Such an awesome product. When I first clicked the video, I thought I'd see you and the kids in the woodworking shop fabricating a cabinet! This is way better, because the cost of wood is so high and the number of tools and man hours it would take to put this together would be staggering. Thanks for sharing! BTW, my favorite cabinet game growing up was Double Dragon.

graphicsgod says:

Nice, but still too pricey for me! I'm looking for sub $300..

That Bald Gamer says:

$900 isn't that bad at all. I'm really liking the direction your channel is going man. Love the original ideas you're coming up with and have no doubt you'll go far if you keep it up. I hope you're doing well, man! 🙂
