Ya it's long gone. If you missed it you now need to either jailbreak or have a developer account. I've ordered the icade to use with it as most arcade games need precise controls and touch just isn't doing it.

I've been playing around with it for a few hours and the games that work play really well. Really want to pick up the iCade now though as the touch controls aren't great. For anyone using it, I would love to hear supported games that you like. For me so far: Tiger road Metal slug 2 R-type Gyruss Ryg...

Custom Wood Mame Unit

Check out this guy's (that's an assumption, sorry ladies) custom wood MAME unit. It's what a game console would look like if it showed up in the MYST universe. I love how the controllers store away.

Sadly there are no independent game stores left in oakville. I could try toyratt in Milton but it would cost more than $5 in gas just to look. If you have it I will pay $8 shipped loose.
