Basement arcade



Jeff Kinder turned his basement in to a retro gaming heaven, including pumping in ambient arcade sounds, he writes “For the final phase of my project I installed 4 speakers up in-between the joists which play all 80’s music and the “Arcade Ambience” sound effect files that I downloaded from Andy Hofle’s website. The arcade ambience REALLY adds to the atmosphere when all the games are on. I also installed continuous blue and purple rope lighting along the ceiling in a pattern similar to the neon lights in the Arcade84 video. [via] – Link.
