Paul ‘Mega RetroMan’ Tesi – This was the run I was originally hoping for. This is a playthrough and NEW WORLD RECORD of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Done on 5/14/2020
JohnRiggs – An NES prototype for the unpublished Days of Thunder was found on several floppy disks, the game’s code manually pieced together and made playable thanks to the Video Game History Foundation and Rich Whitehouse. This unreleased Days of Thunder for NES is completely different from the one that was officially released.
John Hancock – The NES had some awesome arcade ports that captured the “spirit” of the arcades. In this video, I take a look as some of the ports offered, and why some of these are my favorite. This will be a multiple part series. Which ones shown were your favorite? What others do you recommend?
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…
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
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
