Setting up RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 3

This is without a doubt the most requested video/article in the history of The Geek Pub. No seriously. Each of the arcade cabinet videos and my inbox is littered with people asking me to do a video on installing the hardware and software on the inside of the cabinet. Well for those of you who […]
