  • Darksakul wrote: » The NES classic is not a NES, its a POS Linux Rom box According to Nintendo, it IS a new model NES system. Whine all you want but it doesn't change that lol. I'm sorry you hate nintendo.

  • Someone on another board called Logan the "Dark Knight" of the Marvel movies. I'd say that's accurate. Could any other Marvel flick fit that bill?
  • And what of the kids? We never see what happened to them and where they went either. Another thing the movie was building to but didn't quite deliver on. Ending wasn't bad but, it could have been better. Wolverine DID NOT have to die also.
  • So i was bored and on my day off this afternoon, and went and saw Logan for a 3rd time. A personal record for me. I've seen a handful of movies 2x in theaters before but, Logan is the only movie i've EVER seen *3 times* in theaters. Worth it. Eve…

  • Ummm, i fail to see how hating on one nintendo product is somehow a defense for nintendo with the Switch. You guys have yet to address the issue, that the Switch IS just a rebranded Nvidia Shield Tv. This explains why the battery life is so terri…
  • NES Classic was an all-new creation with hardware+emulation. They didn't just grab a Raspberry Pi with a commonly used NES Emu, and shove it into a tiny NES shell. So nintendo deserves credit for that. Unlike the Switch. Where 90% of the R&D …
  • guyvin_juyvin_83 wrote: » Ok thanks guys for clearing up the battery issue. Its PAL. As for the tv and cable I used it years ago on an old CRT blocky tv and worked fine. They fit perfectly ok as of now but still the same display problem. I'l…
  • So it's pretty much confirmed that the Nintendo Switch is just a rebranded Nvidia Shield Tv. Using the same stock CPU/GPU. Maybe revamped software but, otherwise, the same. Also makes the Switch codename make more sense: NX= Nvida X1. As in the T…
  • If your question is for NES Classic use then, i recommend this gamepad: My Arcade GamePad Classic: https://www.amazon.com/Arcade-GamePad-Classic-Controller-Nintendo-Entertainment/dp/B01MPZ8QL4 ^^ I have one of these. It's wireless, comfortabl…
  • One of the things i love the most about the Raspberry Pi 3 with Retropie is, you can control EVERYTHING through gamepad. Never have to touch a mouse or keyboard. PC emulation is great but, always having to resort to mouse/keyboard to navigate stu…

  • The clock issue is a dead backup-save battery. It uses a CR2032 battery, commonly used in watches. I bought a new one at wal-greens for cheap and it was easily changed, through the back panel. I think it's worth it simply to bypass the damn clock…
  • So the Switch is just a re-branded Nvidia Shield Tv with revamped software? WTF nintendo. Just buying the rights to rebrand/release existing hardware with your name on it? Pretty halfassed move....

  • It's not the greatest but, Mame is a Good emulator that plays countless games very well. And when it comes to programs that try to be a jack-of-all-trades? It's easily the among the best in that regard. I don't get Darksakul's irrational hate-bon…
