Anbernic RG505 Specs [Assumed]

 Anbernic RG505 Specs Anbernic has teased their next device on YouTube... the Anbernic RG505 (RG-505) and it looks like a classic and recognizable Anbernic aesthetic.  The video shows the device running PS2 level emulation although not optimally. The device looks to be in the development stage, so there's no word yet on the release window.  Some rumors are pointing towards this device having a RK3588   Unisoc T618 SoC with 4GB RAM. Here's what we know or can assume so far:  Form Factor: Horizontol  OS: Android  Architecture: ARM 16:9 4.95" OLED Touchscreen (Same Size as RG-503) 960x544 Resolution (222.91 PPI) D-Pad: Upper Cross Thumb-sticks: Lower with L3/R3 Face Buttons: 4 Shoulders: 4 Horizontol  Shell: Black (Plastic)

Upcoming Handheld Game Consoles (December 2020/ January 2021)

2020 has been an exciting time for emulation systems and it looks like we'll be headed into 2021 with some momentum to with a few systems still yet to be out before the end of the year. Here's what's likely available soon:  Digidock 2 Gameforce RK3326 DragonBox Pyra GKD Mini FunKey S ESP32 Mini Game Box RG351M (Rumored Dec/January) GPD Win 3 (Pre-Orders start in January).   I'd love to test them all but if I was choosing interest just for myself personally I'm keeping an eye on the Digidock 2 mainly for the DIY factor where you can set it up with your choice of hardware and software. Is it worth the cost? I don't have the answer for that yet.  The Gameforce RK3326 interests me mainly on aesthetics at this point.  The RG351M will be a day 1 purchase for me as soon as Abernic makes it available. 

8 Great Android Games For The Retroid Pocket 2

There are some Android games that are an excellent match for the RP2. Sace being an issue on most people's RP2 setups I'm sticking with mostly sub 100MB games. *Note: To avoid running hot, turn Wi-Fi Off for some Android games. Text in some games is wonky in areas but the games are still playable. Perhaps upgrading to Android 8 will help one the problems with that are ironed out.  STARDEW VALLEY There are very few people who haven't heard about Stardew Valley. It's a knockoff of Harvest Moon but perhaps better than HM.

There's a couple events where text is an issue on the RP2 but nothing game breaking. The game uses a classic JRPG battle system with standard turn based elements but also "hate" mixed in which causes the enemies more rage based on th
