Review: Retro-Bit RES Plus HDMI NES console

Right off the bat, I typically don’t like clone consoles. I’m a total retro snob for the most part; not a collector but extremely picky about the accuracy of my old games. A couple of years ago I had to sell the majority of my c...


Someone rescued an NES rotting in a barn for 20 years

I'd definitely play this World of Warcraft NES mockup

You'd think that after playing World of Warcraft for nearly 13 years I'd be tired of it, but I'm still plugging away at the Legion expansion. I'd also happily give this NES demake a go, if it were real that is. YouTube channel Rkade Soup re...


Review: The Disney Afternoon Collection

One of my favorite conversation starters among friends is how they feel about legacy systems like the NES. In my experience, you'll run the entire gamut, from older folks who hated retro games to younger players who absolutely love the clas...


Duck Hunt in VR adds dual-wielding and grenades

NES Classic edition restocking soon

Nintendo's NES Classic Edition has been THE must-have toy for the holidays this year, and it's been sold out pretty much everywhere since it released on November 11. Much like the early days of the Wii, the consoles are going for up to five...


PSA: NES Classic is available on Amazon in 30 minutes

Not since the days of amiibo-mania have we seen a Nintendo product that's in as high demand and as low stock as the NES Classic currently is. The miniature console released today and it seems as if most stores sold out immediately. It's mos...


Hyperkin is making an NES Classic extension cable

I imagine the NES Classic will bring about some happy memories this holiday season, particularly for those of you who grew up with the original system and now have kids of your own that are getting into gaming, but there are some less-than-...
