It's amazing how buying all the accessories to give retro consoles modern features end up making them cost more than modern consoles.

It's cheaper to just buy an OSSC, or a retrotink 2x.

And you're locked to the GameCube, the retrotink 2X is around $90 and you can use it with pretty much any system.

Apparently, it's also very good for digitising VHS tapes.



This guy posted a video on updates to the latest model that he has no way of testing out 👍

The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

They're not always that great either.

Also, I do find some of the "Retro channels for normies", quite amusing in how they try to explain how these adapters work, without even having a clue themselves. "thumbsup

The game became Journey to Silius after The Terminator license was revoked due to the game not following the movie’s plot.
