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 👍

Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

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The game became Journey to Silius after The Terminator license was revoked due to the game not following the movie’s plot.
