The MX4SIO project is a newer development we've seen in recent years which allows users to adapt a SD card or microSD card for use on the PS2's Memory Card port. While this isn't intended to be a replacement for a Memory Card, one of the biggest benefits we look at in this review is the ability to load PS2 games through the Memory Card port using OPL! While OPL has several great methods of loading PS2 games through an internal hard drive, network share, or a USB drive, the last one mentioned there seems to be a favorite despite slower read speeds. This project changes that by combining the convenience of USB loading with higher read speeds, eliminating longer loading times and choppy FMV playback known to plague USB loading.

This review specifically delves into Helder's own take on the MX4SIO with the MC2SIO, a $20 USD pre-built solution that can be used for OPL and loading PS2 games once you bring your own properly configured microSD card. Helder's Game Tech was awesome enough to send one of these over to the channel to review, so in this video we take a look at his MC2SIO adapter and see if this thing is really worth the money?
I just ordered one. I can’t wait to try it, it should be here in a week.

It should be great.

I'm hoping someone at Aliexpress starts making them so it's easier to get it sent to Australia.

The Retro Best Buds are back in town, and this time around they are going all the way back to March 2002, issue #4 of the Official Xbox Magazine demo disc! Demo discs were an excellent way getting small samples of games you might have otherwise missed, perhaps something lost in today's gaming scene? Jump on back with us as we take a look at a small offering of the vast world of the OG Xbox.

Episode 344 - Sometimes they make minor changes when bringing games to the west from Japan... and something they make pretty big changes. Let's check out some of those changes which I find interesting.

Episode 345 - Anyone remember that oooold console called the Xbox 360? You must be 90+ years old if you do. Well let's look at the console and a bunch of games I find interesting, listening to the 5.1 surround sound that many of these games natively provided!

NOTE: You may need to use a Youtube app on a device like a Roku, Firestick, Shield, etc to experience the 5.1 surround sound properly. PS4, PS4, and Xbox Youtube apps don't currently support 5.1 audio.

This video took us months of work to compile, document, and research. We had to coordinate with landlords, brokers, former employees, lawyers, and more to dig deep into the shady, scummy operation of Artesian Builds and its former CEO Noah Katz, whom we've heard has thrown around the word "lawsuit" when talking about us. We will never back down from sharing the full story with consumers, especially when so many have been hurt by one company's actions.

This deep dive gains exclusive access to the East Coast warehouse formerly used by Artesian Builds, dives into finances, and uncovers behavior we believe to be potentially fraudulent.

Over the weekend I was invited to test out a closed test of Insignia - the Xbox Live 1.0 replacement for the Original Xbox consoles. In this episode we take a closer look at the service, how well it performs and what to expect when the service launches in the near future!

In today's video we look at the history of the Commodore 64, the most popular home computer of all time and the home to a ridiculous amount of video games. Let's look back at it's story!

Limit pushing on the PlayStation, let's have a look at some games that take Sony's first console to the edge and also explain how they do it.

Welcome to Season 7 of Ancient DOS Games! Today, Gemini's kicking things off by looking at 3D Lemmings, also known as Lemmings 3D since the title shows up in many different ways, though the manual itself confirms that the 3D comes first. It's an action/puzzle game developed by Clockwork Games and published through Psygnosis in 1995.

This game came out at a time when EVERYTHING was making the jump into 3D, with some properties faring better than others in the process. This one really comes down to personal preference and the system you bought it for, as the console versions rated considerably worse than the DOS version, likely due to a lack of mouse controls which are kinda essential, and the camera can take some getting used to, but it otherwise has quite a bit of its own personality and it's even remotely a bad game. :B
