I just wanted to write a quick blog entry here to show my intention of acquiring a Defender Arcade cabinet someday. This game means to me more than I can properly convey. My younger brother Joey, and I (he much more than I) played for countless hours on the Defender cabinet that they had on the pediatrics floor of St. John's Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Defender is a really complex game which really takes a lot of practice to get good at. Joey was really great at that game despite often having to adjust his technique because of where his IV was on any given day. Cystic Fibrosis took him away from us when he was 10. He wasn't able to grow up, graduate high school or get married and have kids, but he was a wizard at Defender.

I have to update that I purchased the 2/3 size Arcade1up machine of Defender (with 11 other games).  It almost hit the spot.  For now I'm going to replace it's control panel with one that more authentically represents the arcade and stick a raspberri pi in it so it is closer to the actual arcade machine in how it works.
