    Video Game Collecting and the Death of Physical Media

    Another thread-surrection from our last forum iteration, let us once again discuss collecting video games in an era when physical media is becoming increasingly obsolete. Those of us who still seek out physical games have undoubtedly come to rely more on auction sites than retail stores, but...

    You Say TurboGrafx, I Say CoreGrafx (Let’s Call The Whole Mini Console Thing Off)

    So I finally managed to get my hands on one of these Mini CoreGrafx things (TurboGrafx 16 Mini to you, Americans, and PC Engine Mini for you Japanese). The TG16 is the one console I never saw in the wild, so besides a few games in the WiiVC I had never interacted with its library, so I was...

I've been waiting on the NA release of The C64 (full sized), somewhat impatiently, and am looking into programming on...

    Hard EverDrivin'! Flash cartridges & ODEs

    Continuing ShakeWell's thread from the Before Times, let's talk about stuff like Everdrives and optical drive emulators! So I recently started playing GBC Mario Golf on my Everdrive-GB, and I found myself enjoying it so much that I sought out a real copy of the game to play instead. However...

    Retrogaming Hardware

    Pi builds, FPGAs devices, clone consoles/flash carts, those open Dingux handhelds that exploded in the past year or so, and Android handhelds/microconsoles are all good examples of what I’m talking about. The primary purpose of many of these is retro gaming and emulation, so being able to...
