Retro Champ – Very DISAPPOINTED…

 

The Retro Champ tries to be the “Switch” for NES/Famicom cartridges, but sadly fails in many key areas. I wanna like it…but NOPE…

PROS

  • good size, feels well built
  • I like that there is a rechargeable battery
  • turns on and boots up very quick
  • Supports thousands of physical games

CONS

  • Screen is not crisp at all. Looks like 240p footage instead of upscaled 
  • D-pad is a little shallow and mushy
  • Has a death grip on your NES cartridge
  • Famicom cartridges are very tough to get out because they’re flush with the system. You need to either use that special tool to push them out or another NES cartridge which is kind of weird and bad design
  • colors washed out or overly saturated
  • Aspect ratio cuts off the right side in 4 x 3
  • Sound is off. Not emulated correctly

Playdate Hands-On: Cutting-edge gaming nostalgia

Playdate is a new handheld gaming system from MacOS software developer Panic. It’s built around two concents. If you purchase the system, a new game will appear on it every Monday for 12 weeks, and it has a unique control scheme: a small crank. The Playdate is also a designed to be an open system, Panic will continue to develop and sell games, but anyone can produce and even sell software for the Playdate.
