Re: Retro Freak Review

Great review! You should definitely do the update. I read something about how the firmware was causing the overheating issue, but I don’t remember the specifics. A couple extra things to consider: For two player games, you can just plug in a usb controller for player two. I know it’s not the same as...

Re: Good Computer?

If you are trying to save money, I have a radical suggestion that may work for you. Alienware made Steam machines to compete with gaming consoles and they didn’t catch on. Right now they are really cheap on Amazon. You can get an i7 with 8 gigs of ram and an Nvidia graphics card for $470. They run o...

Re: Retro Freak/Amazon delivery

My Retro Freak just froze up while playing Demons Crest for the SNES. It was a little hot on the bottom. I'm a little concerned about the reliability of this thing! I meant to post about this when you first got it. You must do the update to avoid the overheating problem. I put off buying one until ...

Re: Physical Release Thread

Cave Story+ for the Nintendo Switch is really good.

This is a great example of Physical Releases done right. Full color instruction manual and a mini soundtrack cd!

Re: 2017/9/1: NES: Goal!, World Cup Soccer, Totally Rad

I think it's funny that Jaleco Americanized the Famicom game Magic John to Totally Rad!

Re: Madden vs. Tecmo Bowl

So true Critic! My son bought Bloodborne the other day and I almost laughed at how long it took before he could actually play it. Installs and updates are out of control. I remember buying my kids a Wii U for Christmas years ago and having to sneak and install the day one update without them knowing...

Re: Retron 5 Review

The Retro Freak is in stock now on Amazon for $165 free shipping. Again, the region free version is the same except that it comes with an nes to famicom converter. You can buy those on Ebay for $10. Or, you can just load the nes roms directly and forgo the adapter. I play my NES games on either my A...

Re: Retron 5 Review

I've always been confused about the Retro Freak. Doesn't this thing only play Japanese carts? I heard there was supposed to be a region-free version but I've never seen it for sale. All versions of the console give you an English option when you first start. The Retro Freak plays the following Amer...
