There’s only one reasonable excuse – one plausible explanation – for why I haven’t updated the blog in so many days. Did the four horses of the Apocalypse trample me while I was sleeping, leaving me to wake up with hellish hoof prints all over the bedroom and evil horse shit on the bed? No. Did someone strap me to a chair and force me to watch Star Trek: Insurrection so many times on repeat that my brain finally atrophied and my eyeballs turned to liquid? No.
So what then? Well it’s simple really, I finally scored my first Arcade cab! Yes, that’s right folks, I finally own a circa 1993 dedicated Mortal Kombat 2 arcade machine, and it’s been sucking up all my time and making blog updates seem like a distant memory. It’s very cool, the sound and visuals are top notch and the artwork is perfect. There are a couple of minor things I’ll want to touch up / add (like the red/blue buttons and MIDWAY stickers on the sides) but for the most part, it’s picture perfect. Speaking of which, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, ladies & gentlemen I give you the new crown jewel of the collection :).
