I’ve been enjoying a great week off in Melbourne, showing off “player 3” to the relatives, enjoying the coffee, but sadly not having much time for gaming.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back home next week, so your irregular JOMGy goodness will continue!
Now, as promised, here’s some closeup shots of my baby Galaga cabinet, unwrapped last week, and built by modelmaker Justin Whitlock.
Looks great, doesn’t it? The joystick and raised firebuttons are quite superb. Some of Justin’s other cabs are even more ambitious, such as his Terminator 2 gun game with miniature guns and a perspex “monitor window”.
The attention to detail is awesome, and Justin’s just added even more cabinets to his lineup. If you can’t be tempted by at least a few of his classic cab models, then you need to hand in your retrogaming license immediately.
Finally, here’s a picture of me playing my Galaga cab. Well, a guy can dream, can’t he? (If only I lived in the USA, where real “Galaga cabs” seem to be in every second bar or Craigslist ad…)
