Are Some SD Cards “Louder” Than Others?

Firebrandx has just posted an interesting discovery on his Patreon page and I wanted to post his findings here (with his permission): In most ODE’s (Optical Drive Emulators) and ROM Carts, it’s common to hear a “buzzing” sound when the SD card is being accessed.  It’s most often noticed when there’s silence in the […]

NBA Jam – The Book

I doubt there was a gamer alive in the 90’s that never played NBA Jam, at least once, either in the arcade or on home consoles.  I distinctly remember it as being the perfect blend of an arcade game and a sports game, drawing fans from both genre’s.  Add to an already good game some […]

New GBA IPS Screen Comparison

Analogue Pocket Officially Announced

Last week, Analogue teased an upcoming product release, with the colors of the post made up of the GameBoy DMG color palette.
