My gaming setup or: How I was able to justify buying a shit ton of powertools


I'm blown away by the response I've gotten so far, I had no idea what to expect, but not this. Front page and 25+ awesome comments. You guys freaking rock. I'm all pumped up now and hopefully I can come up with something else for you.

Here are some links showing how I build some of this stuff. Hopefully it's cool link:




I've been looking at a bunch of the gaming setups on here and since I just finished a couple of projects I thought I would throw mine up. I just moved into a house and had an empty room to work with so I started brainstorming. Here is what I came up with.

As far as pure number of games I don't think I can compete with most people on here, however I've got a couple of unique things. Also I tried to create a room that wouldn't look like I still live in my moms basement (because I don't...and my mom doesn't have a basement) and that an actual semi-adult lives here.

Enough of the jibba jabba:

My main tv is actually a projector, Epson 6100, on a homemade screen. I was able to get a 117" screen for about the same price as a 50" LCD, awesome.

I've got more detail on my projects at my own blog, but I'm not sure if I can post it here.

Looking forward to hearing what you guys think in the comments.

I'll try and get some pictures of some Mario 3 on the screen to put up here, Tanooki suit for the win.[url]

About TonySwankone of us since 11:59 PM on 07.02.2008

I play a little bit of everything. Some retro, some sports, some shooters. RPGs are something I rarely play anymore just because of the huge time commitment. However I do find time to replay Chrono Trigger and Earthbound every year or so.

Currently Playing:

Mass Effect
NCAA Football 2009
Call of Duty WOW
Left 4 Dead

Aside from gaming on big on building stuff, photography, playing guitar, and brewing beer. Also, as of late I've been into the yoga, which has kicked my ass.
