RetroArch: NeoCD Cores Added on Steam

NeoCD on Steam https://twitter.com/libretro/status/1453083863094382594 So much going on lately, this bit of info slipped past me yesterday but it looks like libetro has added NeoCD Cores to RetroArch on Steam.

What it has going for it is that it's highly pocketable, the screen looks nice and the Miyoo Mini is still big enough to actually play unlike some of the even tinier micro handhelds out there.  From videos, the screen actually looks pretty good in my opinion. The colors look rich and vibrant. Smaller than the original BittBoy but the screen gets more space.  Based on the video posted by timeisart on Discord, I'm not reall
