THE BARCADE
What started as a way for Noah B. Wilson to simply hang up a few pots and pans via pegboard grew into a monster, and that monster cannot be satisfied. And while it looks like a lot of money was spent, The Barcade has become a money saver because its way cheaper to drink $1 beers at home than go to a bar and drink $5 beers. In the end, this thing is basicaly Noah's hobby. It's a beast. It's his 'car in the garage' that he keeps tinkering with, and it's amazing. It's oddly customizable, modular, and quite sophisticaed. What's next for The Barcade, Noah's own personal obsession? Wait and see.
 
Barcade v11.0



December 2019

Might I offer you some advice? Forget everything you think you know. Just when I thought this thing was done, it's not. The Bar gets a new monitor IN the bar! That's freakin' mind blowing, if you ask me. Mirros off of the Barcade Booth, so it is like an extension of the Booth and can use SNES controllers. Various art upgrades and some reshuffling puts things in place.
 
Barcade v10.0 and Barcade Booth v4.0

October 2019

The upgrades are not as obvious because there's just no more room. Another sound system upgrade, Barcade Booth gets a new blue skin, and a Robit! Meet the Robit! He's on wheels, and wants you to play some board games or air hockey! He pops right out of the Booth!
 
Barcade v9.0

February 2019

The mini arcade is added! There are six of them, and yes, they all work!
 
Barcade v8.0 and Barcade Booth v3.5

February 2018

I don't remember what took the Barcade to v8.0, but I'm sure it was all internal stuff. At some point, I added a Roku, got new speakers, and then added lights behind the Barcade Booth. There's also a few more crazy things on the walls as stuff got shuffled around.
 
Barcade v7.0 and Barcade Booth v3.0

July 2017

With no place left to go outward, the only place to go was inward. The Barcade gets a cool ledge above the TV, a few more lights, and an ice machine! Also, the Barcade Booth gets its second skin, but that one's gone too now. It also got a pull-out keyboard and inner shelving. The original bar gets its own inner-shelving for a BluRay player, Nintendo WiiU, wine rack, and water. Water? Lame. There's a ton of little things in this upgrade as well, but I don't remember them all.
 
Barcade v6.0

March 2017

Let there be lights! The Barcade glows now, gtes two very cool lamps built into it, and it has a lot of cool Nintendo art. This is surely when the theme of Barcade took hold. The Barcade Booth also lost its Viking Bunny skin and is going to have an SCP Arcade skin. Also: Doritos!
 
Barcade v5.0

December 2016

Someone help me. A Christmas idea turns into a Christmas miracle as The Barcade gets ... another wall. Growing out of control, the Barcade swallows up a window, gets a better lamp, gets a new light, and the Barcade Booth gets a skin! That skin will be removed later. Gross.
 
Barcade v4.0 gets Barcade Booth 2.0

October 2015

The beginning of the end of my sanity. The obession grows as the new Barcade Booth is added. It's still there (granted, its had a new paint job and loaded with extras). Barcade v4.0 would remain this way for a while until the crazy idea above was hatched.
 
Barcade Booth v1.0
June 2015
Time to put the Arcade in Barcade! Granted, this was another prototype for making my own arcade booth. This was not the right way to go, and this 'really heavy box' has since been destroyed.
 
Barcade v3.0

April 2015

The Barcade gets real with a TV! Holy crap! And a really cool light too. So cool. The chairs were part of v2.0, and I'm still using them! I'm sitting on one of them right now, actually.
 
Barcade v2.0

January 2015

Now that we got all this room, its time to expand! Barcade v1.5 was not meant to last for the rug was placed for a reason. Now the 'bar' is real. Nacho helps supervise this addition. He is pleased.
 
Barcade v1.5

January 2015

Welp, we moved into a house. Now there is room to grow! The Barcade was called The Lab for now, but that was because we didn't know what was coming. There are now cheeseballs, a blender, and coffee?
 
Barcade v1.2


January 2014

It took us a while, but we finally got some real booze at the bar. The idea was that you would pull the 'bar' out when it was time to be used. That idea did not last long.
 
Barcade v1.1


Demeber 2013

After digging the mini fridge out of storage, the bar was reorganized to be something greater. The idea was growing, but space was limited. Hey! A keg!
 
Barcade v1.0

December 2013

It wasn't quite a bar yet. It was just an idea for a cool way to use pegboard to hang up our pots and pans. There are some wine bottles and some bottle openers, but I wasn't sure what I was doing yet.
