AYANEO Flip Photos So Far (Mystery)

 We don't know much about the AYANEO Flip other than it's a clamshell device with recessed thumb-sticks, stacked triggers, should be running an AMD 6800U and it should be out late this year.  They've leaked out or dropped two artsy cropped photos (from a render) so far this week and that's about it... Hopefully we can see some full images soon... AYANEO Flip

We Need More Vertical Retro Game Handhelds

Great vertical handhelds are definitely a rare thing these days but I think the demand certainly exists for more of them especially with the retro game handheld community members that lean more towards classic gaming than modern. A lot of handhelds coming out are starting to be geared more towards current gen gaming. Moontorc recently posted a mockup of a Miyoo "Midi" on Reddit at the halfway size (with a 3.5" screen) between my two favorite vertical handhelds (Miyoo Mini & Anbernic RG-351V).  If Miyoo were to make something like this and keep the price around $100 or so, I'd buy a few of them on the spot! If nothing else, it shows how awesome the Miyoo Mini design is with very little space around the screen! https://www.reddit.com/r/MiyooMini/comments/utvhvp/heres_my_mock_of_the_midi_if_the_screen_was_35/

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

My Current Top Five Gaming Wishlist 2021 $$$

As an avid gamer/collector I will likely never be able to purchase or acquire every game, device or accessory that I really want but I'm certainly always increasing the size of my collection.  This is the Top Five gaming related items on my wishlist:  BoxyPixel Gameboy Color Aluminum Shell .  Surprisingly I still use my GBC handheld console quite a bit but I can't stop thinking about how I'd really like to get one of these aluminum shells for it from Boxy Pixel. It's a little expensive at $69 but from everything I've seen well worth the price.  https://www.boxypixel.com/products/game-boy-color-machined-aluminum-shells-ips GameForce RK3326  We are within weeks or perhaps even a week of the GameForce coming up for sale. Early rumors indicate it should retail for around $89.99 and possibly be sold through the URL gameforce.fun . The unusual look, a proper 4:3 screen for retro gaming and a build that appears to be very ergonomic has me highly interested desp
