Everdrive N8 Pro NES Edition

Krikzz just announced that the anticipated NES edition of the N8 Pro is now available for order. The NES N8 Pro shares the exact same features as its already released Famicom counterpart.

PS1HDMI Progress Update

Christof has been hard at work on the PS1HDMI project and it looks like he’s made some excellent progress!  One of the most impressive features is the ability to switch between 240p and 480i resolution with the potential for zero dropouts.  Not all TV’s and capture cards will react the same to this, but the […]

Celeste on Switch: Mostly Spoiler-Free Review

I just beat (not completed) the game Celeste for the Nintendo Switch.  It was a challenging game that I enjoyed playing, but have no desire to revisit.  It’s still a game I’d recommend to both retro and modern gamers and I’d like to share my feelings as to why.
