Did Piracy Kill The Dreamcast?

Jenovi recently posted an excellent, analytical overview of the Dreamcast and Sega as a whole in the late 90s / early 2000’s.  Until now, I haven’t heard anyone discuss the sales of the Dreamcast with such detail and the video truly paints a picture of how well the Dreamcast actually sold. I certainly don’t want […]

FirebrandX Releases Nt Mini Noir Settings Guide

Granular control over the way audio and video is rendered has always been one of Analogue’s prominent features, but it can be daunting to navigate those menus without a comprehensive knowledge of retro gaming hardware, broadcast standards, and the artistic intent of the era’s developers. Fortunately, retro gaming guru FirebrandX has published a series of videos and documents […]

We just released our episode on the Nt mini Noir, which as I’m sure you know by now, is completely redesigned in how it works, adding crucial features like interpolation. As usual, we tried to go through pretty much everything you can do with the system, […]

‘My Arcade’ Famicom to NES Cartridge Converter Review

I recently saw a $15 cartridge converter on Amazon that allows you to play original Famicom games on an NES.  The main difference between this one and previous I’ve tested is the shape and orientation:  After connecting the cartridge, it takes on the shape of an NES cart, with the label facing the same way […]

Fiber Optic HDMI Cable Lag Tested

Many gamers – both modern and retro – need long runs of HDMI cable to complete their setups.  There’s many reasons to need a longer cable, ranging from distance of consoles to display (like with projectors), distance of console & display to capture PC (my setup) and even people running retro gaming tournaments who need […]

SuperRT Brings Ray Tracing to the SNES

Engineer and game developer Ben Carter has demonstrated a proof of concept “SuperRT” expansion chip that brings 3D ray tracing to the Super Nintendo. Ray tracing—a computationally demanding technique used to calculate realistic lighting in 3D graphics engines—has only recently become possible to render in real time on consumer level hardware, and at a hefty […]
