GREAT! beautiful piece with a beautiful collection. It's tidy (not like at home) and it's warm. it smells the evenings between friends to settle accounts on KOF!
the size of the room = a minister's apartment in Paris! lol

Dear Lord, one a setup. Love the shelving here.

Thanks! It's just a bunch of cheap IKEA bookshelves I daisy-chained together with some zip-ties.

I actually need to update the Neo collection pics - it got quite a bit bigger. Not pictured below: Mutation Nation, Last Blade 2, and Last Resort.

Love the arcade cabinet. If it were me i’d certainly use it for MVS though!

I'm 100% AES when it comes to the Neo. I'm old, so I've already been through the rotation of AES then MVS, then back to AES in the 90's. :) That said, I may get a big red down the line just for posterity sake.

The cab is dedicated to the CPS2, and is running with the Darksoft all-in-one mod so I have access to the full library on CPS2 hardware.

This is great advice for anyone shopping on eBay. You’d be surprised what can happen. “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.”

Yeah, I got it off of Ebay recently - prolly the same one. Although, I privately sent the seller an offer as I wasn't about to pay what they were asking for it with the insert in that condition and no manual. Since I purchased another game off of him (also not paying the asking price), he was happy to give me a good deal for the combo. I never outright buy stuff on ebay, and I've gotten some crazy good deals just by asking even if there isn't an "offer" button on the listing.

Is that a real Metal Slug Yagami?

Lord no! lol It's an old MVS conversion I found on ebay a while back. Opened it up to confirm the chips when I got it - was really well done. I ordered a matching repro insert and sticker from NeoOldStore to round out the package. I think it cost me $175 bucks after all said and done if I remember right.

I love how organized your collection is. I feel like I can barely walk in my game room these days. :lolz:

Thanks, Wolf! I have a ton of space in my basement to spread out so it makes it a bit easier. My gameroom at my old house (a small bedroom) wasn't quite so put together. Sadly, there's not an easy access to the basement with a lot of clearing so getting large pieces (like cabs) down there is a bitch.

Updated AES, CD, and Pocket Collections. Not shown, the Hyper 64 or MVS set ups. I'll post another update once that section is complete. My AES collection is pretty much complete, though - or, complete as in I've sourced all the games I want on AES. I have a few holes in the CD and MVS library I'd still like to fill.

Time for an update...
Haha, yeah. I'll take some pics of the new set up with the new cab and the like soon. I've completely rearranged the space, added a rotatable mount for one of my 50in displays for Tate shumups, and some other upgrades.

Dude, those $20 bookcases are the shit! Sturdy, look good, and you can zip tie them together for all sorts of uses. We have them all over the house. lol.
