  1. I’m sorry, but this belongs on CrapMAME


    “There are some truths in life that some people are not willing to accept; All babies are not cute, all old ladies are not sweet, not every man’s wife is beautiful, and YOUR MAME CABINET PROBABLY SUCKS.”

  2. Yeah, it’s not pretty. Looks a bit too much like a washer-dyer combo, if you ask me. On the other hand, it was cheap, it actually works and it’s sturdy enough to stand up to my kids.

  3. i linda like it – it’s made from all the stuff you had (it’s standing up to kids, as you mentioned) and it looks like the old 3d hologram game from the 80s!

    Well, it did recently take a bit of punishment from a two-year-old armed with crayons. Fortunately, it’s reasonably washable.
