Building My First Pedestal Arcade Machine

Looking for a new spring project, the guys on my street were clamoring for some retro gaming. Welp, since I had Logical Increment’s destitute build sitting around from my previous video series, I knew what I had to do.

This is CodetheThing’s build of a 4-player pedestal style arcade setup. What does that mean? Well the display will be mounted on the wall instead of within the cabinet. The advantage will be a larger screen and more space for 4 grown men to play in the man cave. Included are the parts, helpful links, and part 1 of the build video!
