Cave Story - this game was released back in the day for FREE? Gameplay, graphics music - in my opinion superb.

Continuing the topic of Linux gaming handhelds - what if we would port more indie games on it? Would it be Linux Gaming Handheld Heaven

The PocketGo is in my price range, but I think it can't do anything what my PSP 3000 can't, so I see no point in buying it. Ok, maybe the small size is nice, but do I really need a such small gaming device?

The RG350 handheld console seems to be one of the best options, with enough power to run most of the PSX games, two analogs and 4 buttons on the back (L1, L2, R1, R2). Downsite? The price and the second analog stick can make it difficult to access the A button. I also red that the paint can come of from the buttons.

Imagine a shop like gog when you can buy DRM free console games that can be played on any emulator! I know, but then anyone could pirate Super Mario Brothers...

Bored? Maybe you have a collection of old fully legal game backups? Check if you have an old PSP and make a good use of it. OR. Give it to your kid and get some sleep ๐Ÿ˜‰

The BitBoy PocketGo v2 looks nice, it's also the form factor that I like and it runs Linux. The con - the analog stick seems to be like the one from PSP, so better not to use it.
The v1 also called just PocketGo is not as powerful and the screen has their own issues, but it's sooo small.

When I'm watching a video about Chinese handheld consoles / emulation devices I always fighting with myself not to buy one. They are cool, but I won't use it. That's what I'm keeping saying to myself...

You are a parent without to much time for gaming? Try a handheld system.

Console gamers, we currently in a almost all digital generation and there is no way back. Therefore backwards compatibility is even more important then ever. For older generations we can buy used game copies and they work without an online service. For digital games we need an online shop and that PlayStation store for PS4 will be one day closed.

Thank you to everyone just talking about random interesting stuff and posting nice looking pictures!

We built yesterday a blanked fort for our kid. Now I want one myself...

Use virtual desktops on your W10 laptop. Disconnect it from the monitor because you need to go to a diffrent room. Reconnect. Arrange your virtual desktops again...

Did someone try to play video games with a 3yo kid? Any recommendation what to play?

If you are the whole day at home with your family, it is a good think to ask for some "alone time". We love our families and often it's fun, but 24/7 even with the loved once can be demanding. It is alright to close yourself in a room with headphones for an hour - next time you will be with the kids and she can relax. Also you can still go out as long you are not meeting other people. is growing and becoming so a better alternative to Youtube. Check if your favorite content creator is not already there and allow them to make actual money of they work!

I have a new game. Take a fantasy classic like "Lord of the Rings" and imagine it is a postapo sci-fi story were magic is a forgotten technologie, Sauron is an evil AI, Orgs are mutants, etc...
