DIY'er constructs elaborate Metroid arcade console

Darren Murph

We're not exactly sure what's with the sudden resurrection in arcade obsession, but hey, we're not complaining. On the radar today is a showy Metroid arcade console that was apparently created from the ground up by one astoundingly diligent fanboy. The exterior primarily consists of plywood, lights and paint, while a home-built PC resides within to handle the emulation duties. There's also a built-in sound system with subwoofer, a 17-inch Samsung LCD and a clay-based Mother Brain to keep things genuine. Click on through to check out an (admittedly lengthy and unnecessarily dramatic) video after the break, and don't even pretend that you don't long for one just like it in your abode.
