OK so I started the ball rolling early December 2011 and David told me it would take 6-8 weeks to have my system so I got to work on making the proper MansCave to house my Ultimate System.
I decided on the Pedestal version because I wanted to have a huge Screen/Monitor to enjoy all my classics on . I opted for the Wireless Guns Option to play all those fun Gun Games like Duck Hunt /Mad Dog Mcgee / House of the Dead to name a few . They also custom make your Machine to your favorite Theme. I choose a Multi Vintage Classic Arcade Character theme .. Dream Home Arcades offers Stand-ups / Pedestal / Classic Cabinets / Cocktails and Bartop systems . Here is some expamples of what they offer . http://www.dreamhomearcades.com/page.aspx?index=00000018
These systems can the Hyperspin Frontend that makes accessing over 24,000 Classic games of my game library so its like Christmas morning every morning .. and for those of you that dont know what a MAME / Dream Home Arcade is ? Its a Home Arcade Gaming System that emulates has over 24000 of your games from most every Real Classic Vintage Arcade Game from Ms. Pacman to Tron .. and Every Atari 2600,5200,7800 / Intellivision / Colecovision / Nintendo NES / SNES / Nintendo 64 / Virtual Boy / Gameboy / Atari Jaquar / Sega Genesis / Sega CD / Sega Dreamcast / Sega game Gear / 3DO / Sony Playstation / Turbo Grafix / Neo Geo/ Tons of PC Games and lots more .. Some of these you will have to add yourself but with this system its endless
This is what Hyperspin looks like AFTER you load it on your system
Here is a Link to what these Dream Arcade Machines have to offer and what the Menu System
( Hyperspin) looks like.
And you can add others not shown .. like Magnavox Odyssey / Channel F Fairchild / Bally Astrocade / and many more classic systems as well as many classic Window games Wolfenstein 3D /Quake / Halloween Harry etc.. with more new stuff added all the time :)
Ok on to building the ManCave ..
I decided to install a Vizio 47" 1080p Monitor because of the price and bang for the buck of under 540.00 from Costco. I also added a Couple Bottle Cap Custom Stools .

R&L Carriers Delivered the System and Dream Home Arcades Packed ,Wrapped and secured the system nicely.. It arrived in Perfect Order.. I'm thinking these State of the art Shock Indicating Devices did their job .. :)
