WARNING: The HDMI Adapter KILLED my GameCube

I have been happily using the GC HDMI Plug n Play 2.0 adapter from ZeldaXPRO on my Gamecube for weeks now… until it got bumped at a party. Now my Gamecube is DEAD! However, a new version is being worked on by the creator and all orders will be automatically upgraded. For more info, please go to : https://zzblogs.wixsite.com/home/purchase-a-plug-n-play-2-0

According to ZeldaXPRO all current & backlog orders will automatically get upgraded to 3.0. He’s also working on an upgrade path for current 2.0 owners. Check his website for more info: https://zzblogs.wixsite.com/home/purchase-a-plug-n-play-2-0

The Bandai Playdia — Bandai’s Educational Home Console

90’s ANIME FANS, REJOICE!
I’m pretty happy to bring you guys this comprehensive video about the Playdia, because it’s just so darn weird. Not to mention it’s actually a pretty cool looking system.
(Also, you have no idea how little history/people care about this console. The amount of digging I did for this research borderlines on actual insanity. …It was not worth it.)
