    This does indeed look quite good... I'd definitely be up for a Mega Drive variant, as I'm fairly sure accurate emulators for that system can run at full speed on even a modestly powered Raspberry Pi.

    I doubt they'll make a Mega Cd version but they do make a Mega Drive version that looks really nice. I'm trying to get a promotional version for review.

    I've just reviewed an 8BitDo Arcade Joystick that's compatible with the Switch. I had no idea 8BitDo even made a stick.

    It's time for another Chinese Knock Offs. This time we are looking at the PowKiddy N1. The board seems to be used for various devices.

    Yes, It's a Famicom Clone but one that's well built. A great little gift for the kids I'd say.

    The Sega Master System is a console loved by millions all over the world yet many seem to think it's a very weak system.
    Is this a true statement? Well, there's only one way to find out. Retro Core 5 - Sega Master System Special.

    Featuring hardware over look and over 30 games!

    Happy New Year to all and to celebrate here we go with the first video of 2019 released on January 1st. This is the updated version of the RS-97 otherwise known as the Retro Game. Or as a one hit wonder rapper, Soulja Boy would have you believe this is his own console.

    While this device is not perfect out of the box it can be modded to add extra functionality and to greatly improve current functionality.

    Today we're going to take a look at something a little different. This Mega Drive console is in the shape of a western arcade complete with 6 individual working buttons and digital joystick.

    This item has been stuck in a box for over 8 months. It was originally bought from Aliexpress for 8 US Dollars, shipped. I've tried looking for the item again but it seems to be no longer listed on the site. Sorry, but no link for this one.

    Yeah!!! It's not a Famicom on a chip system. What we have here is a Mega Drive clone from our friends at Pow Kiddy.

    Here we go with yet another amazing product from Retro Flag. This is their Mega Drive themed case for the Raspberry Pi. In this video I install a Pi3 Model B+

    Regular viewers of the channel may remember the Fujitsu FM Towns I bought a few months back. Well, that unit has been sitting there waiting for some TLC and in this video it finally gets some.

    I was recently sent a Marsback by GameSir. It is described as a unit that can change your smart phone in to an arcade machine. Of course it can't but it is a reasonable little device.

    A while back I covered the original Family Pocket handheld which was pretty good. Now we have the follow up. Can it continue with the quality found in the original?

    This time we are going to take a look at the new improved version of the X6. The old model was pretty awful. Fingers crossed this new model truly has been improved.

    Today we are going to take a look at the X12 PSP looking console from China. Is it twice as powerful as the X6 we looked at last week?

    Yes, finally after 262 shows of Battle of the Ports I'm getting on to the classic Pole Position. This game has so many ports and quite a few emulated versions which we won't cover but even without those there's still 16 versions to see right here. Enjoy.
