New Anbernic RG353V Image Floating Around

 A new image of the Rumored RG353V is floating around. It closely resembles the original RG353 patent so it could be close to real. I expect to hear something official in the near future. Anbernic has been working on this one since last year.  I'm not a fan of the thumb-stick placement on this but I am a sucker for verticals and this would be a more powerful handheld than the 351V. With the same SoC as the RG503, we'd have a vertical handheld capable of running N64, Vita and Dreamcast With No Problem.  Original Rumor: Image Source:

[Updated] Review: PocketGo S30 Retro Handheld

[Originally posted February 2021... Since this time,  I haven't had much luck with the S30. The cheap battery ended up leaking and damaging internal components rendering the device useless. The defective battery is not an isolated issue as numerous people have reported this issue.  For that reason, I'm dropping my score down to a 0/10 in 2022 especially since the manufacturer has abandoned the device. There's no reason to buy one in 2022 unless you are just into collecting... Post Not Edited other than adding a 0/10 2020 Score...] I was not impressed with the PocketGo S30 out of the box but with community support and development, this do change quickly in the retro emulation game...  Score Stock Out of the Box - 3/10 Using RGC Setup - 6.5/10 In 2022 -0/10 Retro Game Corps S30 Updated Guide Originally I scored the console a 5/10 using the RGC setup but that setup has been updated and drastically improved.  Is it worth $60? If you have small hands I'd say so. It does have

Sunday Retro Gaming Reddit Post Finds

I spend a lot of time on Reddit, particularly on Sundays. It's an excellent source for retro gaming information,  but it's a massive sea of posts to sift through.  Be sure to follow me on Reddit: Here are my picks for the 3 most interesting retro gaming related Sunday Reddit posts:  RG552 Android Compatibility List Miyoo Mini Testing Arts/Crafts: The Legend of Zelda

Retroid Pocket 2 Plus: Shipping Time Tracker If you ordered a Retroid Pocket 2 Plus, I'd highly suggest pitching in on this publicly editable document so we can all get a clearer idea of how fast shipping is happening with these. This post by ucarl2187 on Reddit is definitely going to be very helpful if enough people participate! This can also give us an idea of how widespread screen light bleed and sticky buttons was.  Link to document:

Steam Deck/ Nintendo Switch Size Comparison

I think the Nintendo Switch vs Steam Deck arguments are silly considering both have different target consumers but a size comparison is interesting to really get an idea of how big the Deck is.  I don't think size will be a huge issue because it looks to be very ergonomically designed. It may look strange but most great designs look strange at first. Can't wait to get my hands on the Deck. 

3 Obviously Not Great SBC Handhelds I'm Tempted To Buy Anyway

I find it pretty unlikely that this "Chicken Boi" as it has been coined by gamers on Reddit would actually be any good but it's ridiculous enough that it might make a nice addition to the collection. These type of consoles/personal fans have been around a while. I haven't pulled the trigger on buying one but I'm sure I will eventually.  This one I honestly don't know anything about. It looks cheap and probably is not very good but the design is kind of interesting. I don't think I'd pay $30+ but if I ever see one for $15 or less I'll get it just to check it out.  

Anbernic RG351V in Pre Production?

 Starting to sound like it the rumors of a new RG351 Vertical have started appearing. Sounds like it might be like the RG300 in shape and size with a 3.5 inch 640x480 screen, and dual SD slots. There’s no confirmed information on this so this can be filed as an unconfirmed rumor for the moment.

PocketGo S30 First Look Review (Retro Handheld Game Console)

Score Stock Out of the Box - 3/10 Using RGC Setup - 5/10 This was a tough console to review. If there becomes a way to flash a drastically better Firmware in the future, it could be drastically improved. I plan to keep messing around with it in the future. There is potential here if something could be done with the OS and front end.  Screen: 3.5 inch 480x320 IPS CPU: Quad Core 1.2GHZ All Winner A33 CPU GPU: Mali400 MP2 RAM: 512MB Storage: External MicroSD Battery: 2600 The PocketGo S30 is 8BitDo/SNES aesthetic knockoff consoles out of China. I feel like at first glance the shell of the system is a lot higher quality of a build than the PocketGo and PocketGo v2 are but you are also paying more. Of all the systems I felt running Gameboy Advance looked and felt the best. Just between the awful speaker, light leak issues out of the box, a terrible front-end, I just can't highly suggest it. It sounds a lot better using headphones though.  Straight out of the box,
