Hardware Review: NeoSD AES Flash Cartridge

Hardware-Review-NeoSD-AES-Flash-Cartridge

Unless you've won the lottery or happen to belong to a family that's rich in oil reserves, the chances of owning a totally complete Neo Geo AES collection are depressingly slim. The cult console may not have a massive library of games but some of its more desirable or rarer titles have price tags comfortably in the thousands, making ownership a rea [ … ]

Hardware Review: RetroHQ's Neo Geo Pocket SD Flash Cartridge

Neo-Geo-Pocket-SD-Flash-Cartridge-Review

With less than 100 games in its library, the Neo Geo Pocket might not seem like a convincing candidate for a flash cart, but when you consider that a great many of its titles are incredibly hard to obtain these days on the secondary market, the existence of the Neo Geo Pocket SD flash cartridge is a little more understandable. Getting a 100 pe [ … ]

Hardware Review: Hyperkin RetroN HD (Nintendo NES Clone)

Hyperkin-RetroN-HD-Console-Review

“Where do you put the old carts”? I heard this bizarre question far too frequently when I showed off my NES Mini. I would argue the reason for this was down to the fact it’s pretty much the size of two stacked cartridges. While adorably cute, having something as tiny as the Nintendo NES Classic Edition meant comprises, and I thought the ability to [ … ]

Hardware Review: BittBoy (Portable Nintendo NES Clone)

BittBoy-Review

The runaway success Nintendo has enjoyed with their miniaturised NES and SNES Consoles immediately prompted vocal fans to wonder what was next? While there’s certainly lots eager for a shrunk down N64, there’s probably just as many thirsty for a tiny GameBoy. First glance at the BittBoy would make you think that someone has beaten Nintendo to the p [ … ]

Hardware Review: The Eagle Box (Android Emulation Console)

Review-Eagle-Box-Android-Console

Over the last few years the Android operating system has opened up a whole new realm of affordable gaming options. With Google's policy on what applications are allowed on their digital store being incredibly relaxed, and the ability to manually install software, the platform has become a modern haven for emulators and retro gamers. As a result, a [ … ]

Review: MVS MagicKey (Neo Geo MVS To AES Adapter)

Review-Magickey-Converter

SNK's Neo Geo is famous with gamers the world over, which is surprising when you consider that in terms of pure units sold, it barely registers on the scale. The SNES and Mega Drive – the Neo Geo's contemporary rivals – outsold it by a considerable margin, yet the system still managed to attract a loyal fanbase which delighted in the fact that the [ … ]

Everdrive-GBA-X5-Review

In what could be described as the most anticipated arrival from Krikzz’s retro gaming headquarters, the Ukrainian mastermind has finally released an Everdrive flash cartridge for the Game Boy Advance. Simply dubbed the Everdrive GBA X5, this modern solution for Nintendo’s 2001 handheld enters a slightly crowded market with the aim of coming out on [ … ]

 

Hardware Review: Revo K101 Plus (Game Boy Advance Clone)

Review-Revo-K101-Plus

With or without permission from Nintendo, cloned hardware has become a common sight in the gaming world ever since the arrival of countless Famiclones in the late 80s. These production lines have since spread out to cover 16-bit systems and beyond, with the more recent offerings mimicking the Game Boy line up. One of the more recent releases in thi [ … ]

Review-BitBoy-Game-Boy-Printer-SD-Card-Replacement

As technology continues to press on, a wide range of devices once fulfilling our daily needs are sadly lost to time. While the retro gaming community may still be championing their classic consoles, there are still aspects of our hobby that remain somewhat abandoned.

Review-Rhea-Phoebe-Sega-Saturn

With countless titles being ported to the Sega Saturn from the coin-ops, along with unique experiences such as Panzer Dragoon Saga, the 1994 console has quite the strong following. One fan of the system in particular though has pretty much immortalised the Saturn for future generations, by providing the flash cartridge experience on the CD based sy [ … ]
