Now, in the logical end to this story… you can be the biggest, baddest gamer… snapping up the world’s only Geometry Wars arcade cab.
No, it’s not an “official release”. Aussie arcade enthusiast Liam put the machine together late in 2008. His motivation? “I was totally hooked on Geometry Wars and thought this would be a fitting way to play it. A retro styled game – in a retro styled cabinet and control scheme.”
Hmm, why’s he getting rid of it so soon? Liam writes that “he and his Mrs have just bought a home”, and regretfully, it’s “time to go” for this rather unique cab.
So, who wants it? Must be a few gamers who’d like to play this arcade-like game the way it was MEANT to be played. BTW: If you’re a non-Australian J-OMG reader, I’m thinking your shipping on this one might be pretty big…
The Geometry Wars Arcade Cab features:
- 2x Top Fire Joysticks.
- A 20″ CRT Monitor.
- Stereo Sound.
- A GW “claw ship” perspex cutout with Green Neon lights inside (Lights can be set to “Static” or “Flash” modes).
- A GW:RE marquee lit by a separate neon light.
Liam’s ePay auction is set to end in 5 days time. It’ll be interesting to see how high the bidding goes.
