RP2+: No Future Plans For Funtastic (N64 Aesthetic) Collection Colors

Some retro enthusiasts out there were hoping that the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus might eventually bring back the highly popular "Funtastic" Nintendo 64 aesthetic colors, but Retroid (Moorechip) representatives have confirmed that they have no plans to do so. 😿 Your only option when it comes to this will be if you have your hands on an original Retroid Pocket 2, you could order the PCB Upgrade and use the existing shell. It has been confirmed that the PCB Upgrade ships with the newly designed buttons.  As it stands, there are 5 options for the RP2+ (fully assembled), and those options are below:  Regardless, the RP2+ as long as the issues with the buttons have been solved well is set to be the best deal in budget retro handhelds at $99.  The Handheld should be able to handle emulation up to "a good number" of GameCube games and possibly even "a few" PS2 titles using AetherSX2 for Android.  As it stands now,  Orange and Indigo

N64 & Genesis Launch Titles for the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack Plan

Available October 25 2021 If you are underwhelmed by the N64 offerings with the new Expansion Pack Plan which will run you about $30/year extra on top of the regular online plan, I don't blame you at all. There's really no point in discussing the Genesis offerings as  SEGA Genesis Classics has been available since late 2018 on the Switch. I picked up a copy for $14.99 myself.  SEGA Genesis Day 1 Games:  Castlevania: Bloodlines Contra: Hard Corps Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine Ecco the Dolphin Golden Axe Gunstar Heroes Ristar Shining Force Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Streets of Rage 2 MUSHA Phantasy Star 4 Shinobi 3 Strider There are some good N64 offerings at launch (whether it's worth it or not is very debatable) and they include:  Dr. Mario 64 Mario Kart 64 Mario Tennis Sin & Punishment Star Fox 64 Super Mario 64 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time WinBack: Covert Operations Yoshi’s Story Nintendo does plan to add more and m

Super Mario 64 Stable 60FPS Port to Abernic RG351P

Pretty cool find on YouTube and Facebook I saw earlier from Retro Game Corps on a method to port Super Mario 64 to the RG351P and soon RG351. Pretty exciting tutorial here. Hit the link below.  The 351P wasn't all that great when it first came out but it's getting better and better all the time with the retro community support its getting.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w5PSw19_SEo&feature=youtu.be

Games I'm Playing This Week

What I'm Playing This Week  I'm often bouncing around from device to device playing a wide array of games (retro and modern) each week.  It's been a bit of a busy week so far so haven't got a ton of games in.  I had planned on reviewing the RG351V that I ordered on the 7th but here we are 18 days later and I still don't have it.  It's apparently sitting at some distribution center in Kentucky now.  I think I'm done with anything that ends up in DHL's hands that's important.  They are the absolute worst.  For the most part, I'm playing Persona 5 Strikers on the Nintendo Switch each day.  That's a game I bought just because it was Persona but thought I wouldn't like it despite being a big fan of both Persona and Dynasty Warriors.  Surprisingly I actually love the game. I'm only 12 hours of gameplay in so have quite a ways to go.   The retro game I'm playing this week is Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire on the Nintendo 64 (N64).  The
