Yeah, that was the stuff that just didnt seem worth doing it myself to me.

I wanted it to be something relaxing and mindnumbing I could sit down and play. Not a new project.

I was about 15 when it came out.

We played that game almost exclusively for a year or two. Had cardboard setup to divide the tv in half so the person on top couldnt see the person on the bottoms screen. Lol

Any reason you picked this one out of the options?

Toyed with the idea the other day but don’t know much about the various options to purchase

Mainly cause it came ready to play with games loaded on the SD card and had reviews that I trusted to not be fake.

Typically you dont see them with games loaded cause of copyright issues. But this one seems to be legit from what I've read. I'll give an update when it comes in.

Only issues I read of it were

1. About 15,000 of the 135,000 games had issues. But it wasnt any main games. Mostly random super obscure games and beta versions, etc.

2. People had issue with the audio, but its cause they were using the wrong hdmi port it was set up to use.

If you like SHMUPS the TG16/PC Engine is heaven.

It has so many kick arse shooters it's hard to even know where to start.

You could MAYBE buy the raspberry pi and SD card for that...


You sure arent doing the rest of the hardware and case for that... and youd be doing the work to set it up for free.

It has GoldenEye from the N64 working well? That game is notoriously difficult to emulate.

Honestly, I'm not a big gamer. I just wanna play some games from when I was a kid that didnt take me a day to learn the buttons. Lol

Heard it works so so. Probably drags.

Saw a video of someone playing it on a pi 4 and seemed good. But I think they probably overclocked it and maybe did some other things.

Would appreciate!

There are a couple similar options but a don’t know the tech on these at all and have been less than thrilled on Amazon reviews lately... though this one looks solid

I grew up on SNES and looks like a pretty good sweet spot for these. I don’t care if it stretches into providing n64 and golden eye or if a bunch of obscure games suck as long as the big boys from that era play smoothly

I have about $30 into a modded (Homebrew) Wii with near same capabilities. I also have a Raspberry Pi with retropie ($100 in it). I prefer the modded Wii, its more stable and user friendly.

Scruffy’s grandfather had that game and Scruffy never landed on the aircraft carrier.

Will do. That is pretty much where I'm at. I'll let ya know if it works and if I have any major issues.
