    That's what I'm waiting for, but they're taking their sweet time getting it in stock. Feels like they've been teasing it for months.
    I bet the unexpected arrival of the Pi4 wont help. I imagine they're keen to get compatible cases into production for that.

    If you have a meaty bank balance theres a handheld coming out towards the end of the year called the Smach z. It's the most powerful handheld ever built. Can play things like GTA V and Metro.

    I'm more interested in it for the possibility of it being able to play any retro console you could throw at it. Was at E3 as well.

    Ha that would be great. I'm actually hoping castlevania symphony of the night runs ok. Actually there's a whole host of 2D PS1 games I'd like to try.

    Currently playing through Super Metroid for only the second time ever after deciding to continue the metroidvania kick after completing Bloodstained.

    It's even better than I remembered

    I might even play through that again once I get the RS-97. I say again, I don't think I ever finished it. I did attempt to a few years back via Retropie and got quite far. Don't know what happened there.

    Super Metroid is still the best in it's genre, imho. Yes, even better than SOTN. Not played Bloodstained yet, so can't compare them, but you can tell Iga's Castlevania was heavily influenced by Super Metroid.

    I'm getting on with it even better than I did last time. Even though I can't remember a thing about the map, I'm figuring out where hidden stuff is a damn sight easier from what I recall. It's like I understand the design language a bit more (read: where to plant bombs)

    Anyone know how the first Metroid compares? I've got that one too but I've never properly sat down with it

    It's still a Metroid game, but a lot rougher around the edges. Main problem is the level design isn't as tight and it's a lot more difficult at the beginning because of the poor range on your weapons.

    Anyone had/got one of the Pandora Box retro games things?
    I have a gaming table with 60 games on but have seen these boxes and was wondering if they are as good as they look?

    Any retroarch experts know why some of my cores donít generate a playlist menu option?

    For example I have genesis games but I have to keep loading them by choosing load content and load core

    I am prepping for the new gadget arrival by grabbing some 2D ps one games. Could do with getting another memory card actually to put them all on.

    Heh I already bought a screen protector and another 32Gb card. Intending to flash some custom firmware and they suggest keeping the original card as backup.

    You know the ps1 emulation isnít all that right?

    Yeah I know mate. I'm not that bothered about it. Just want to have a play and try a couple. I'll be happy with nes, gba and some snes. Have you got a link for the firmware mate?

    From what I can tell, we are getting the retro game plus v2 which is this one
    https://boards.dingoonity.org/retrogamers-97/retrogameplus-v2-rs97-v3-0-only-comic-book-themed-cfw-24-05-19/

    So we want the relevant one either the above link or the right one from here
    https://jutleys.wixsite.com/retrogamers97-90/home/

    Been doing a lot of surfing on these sites and discord the last week or so.... this could end up being my new Chinese windows tablet obsession.
