My Most Used Consoles/Devices So Far This Year

 Most Used Devices JAN/FEB 2022 My most used platforms this year is definitely a lot different than last year. That's the fun bonus of mixing modern and classic gaming though ... options are near limitless. Over the past 2 months, the Anbernic RG351V and PowKiddy RGB20 have dropped off my 5 most used devices. This will be the first time in a long while that Anbernic hasn't been towards the top of my list.  #1 Xbox Series S   I had completely skipped the Xbox One generation but jumped back into the Xbox realm recently with the Xbox Series S primarily due to how easy it is to use Dev Mode and turn it into a pretty good retro console that can run up to PS2 level games.  I've found myself liking the console as a modern device too, particularly with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.  #2 Miyoo Mini   The Miyoo Mini was the most surprising great handheld for me in recent months and has become my "take everywhere" handheld.

Sonic Advance Turns 20 in NA (GBA Game History)

Happy 20th To The NA Sonic Advance release!! February despite being the shortest month of the year is full of historically significant video game releases.  Sonic Advance wasn't my favorite Sonic game and it seems like a slap in the face to the 1990s to have Sonic games on Nintendo devices but it is what it is and it was actually a pretty good game. Over the years,  the GBA library which is excellent has become one of top go to platforms for on the go gaming.  Sonic Advance still felt like it was in the general spirit of the original SEGA Genesis games which is one reason why it's still very playable today.  Check out my list of Historical February Game Releases!  (LINK)   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_Advance Sonic Advance - GBA

Odroid Super Go Available Soon

$80 I've seen a little talk on Facebook about the Odroid Go Super that was just announced. Sub $100 price but Odroid is known for quality issues. I'm not a big fan of the screen size for retro gaming too but it's worth keeping an eye on this thing. It will be available for sale January 2021. Its always tough judging quality from photos but it doesn't look too sturdy to me (buttons and d-pad don't look that great) but it might be a pleasant surprise.  What's weird about Odroid is that they release stuff that gets knocked off and copied but whoever knocks off their designs does it better. Lol. Maybe they are due for a big win though.  I don't think I'll be buying one but I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one just to check it out.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=B9a0eOlX16s&feature=youtu.be What others are saying: Retro Dodo's Take On It
