    PowKiddy V90 - Clamshell GBA Emu Device

    I saw this announced a while back. It's pretty low-power and it still has all the usual allwinner issues (screen tearing), but considering it's pretty much the only GBA-SP style device out there and that it's only $30, it's certainly a decent deal for what it is. If you were a big fan of the...

    PiBoy DMG - Finally a well-built, affordable RPi4 handheld

    ETA has a couple new videos showing some more emulation tests and how to assemble the device. He also confirmed that steamlink works well, and that the battery life is 3-4hrs under normal operation, or about 2hrs if you overclock for very demanding games. Not amazing, but about what I...

    PinePhone to have Keayboard and Gamepad

    I see the 2020 edition of Keyboard Layout Argument Simulator is out. Let the games begin.

    PiBoy DMG - Finally a well-built, affordable RPi4 handheld

    I don't disagree that landscape > portrait, but I understand why they do it. Using an OG gameboy layout is the only "acceptable" way to get the device this thick. If you had a bespoke landscape handheld this thick, everybody would complain about how chonky it is. But it needs to be as thick...

    PiBoy DMG - Finally a well-built, affordable RPi4 handheld

    According to this discussion, the RPi is just designed that way. They needed to build it to a price, and the "it's either on or off" setup they have was the cheapest way to get it to do what it was intended to do. I would certainly prefer a near-instant sleep/wake as well, but I guess it is...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I picked up a copy of Carrion today and played for a good 45min before I needed to get back to work. It's a very fun and very icky game that you can pick up DRM-free for PC, mac, or linux on GOG.

    PiBoy DMG - Finally a well-built, affordable RPi4 handheld

    I just saw elsewhere that you can get 10% off with the code " FB10". Since I already have a couple RPi4s lying around, that pushed me over the edge. Just placed an order.

    OneNetbook OneGX

    Yeah, way too rich for my blood. I mean it's not egregious considering the specs and capability, but considering I hardly even used the dozen or so handhelds I already have, I certainly can't justify dropping a grand on a chonky toy.

    OneNetbook OneGX

    Looks like the cat's officially out of the bag. It's now available on amazon in a couple different RAM/storage configurations for between $970 and $1200. Here's an extended emulation test showing GC and wii performance using dolphin:

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I'm back on WoW (WotLK private server), along with my wife and a bunch of IRL friends who we played with back in the day. I'm "lucky" in that my work is still very much active and I can do everything from home, but it means that all my furloughed friends are blowing past me leveling half a...

    OneNetbook OneGX

    Definitely a chunky beast, but that's kind of inevitable with the TDP and battery they're claiming. The side pic is pretty clear, and what I'm not seeing is anything that looks like a secure attachment point for the "joycons". I'm wondering if they're actually going to be two separate devices...

    OneNetbook OneGX

    With all the coronavirus-related slowdowns and backlogs, I think we can safely assume they're not going to hit that date. If we're lucky, they might send a few preproduction units to reviewers before they can actually get production started. That might allow time for them to be made aware of...

    OneNetbook OneGX

    Does it have two displays (front and back of the lid), or does the display lid swivel in the middle like an old toughbook convertible?

    Popcorn Pocket PC - A Linux handheld terminal

    Just found this posting over on the PocketCHIP subreddit. Apparently some former employees of the now-defunct Next Thing Computing have started their own SBC/handheld company called Popcorn. They seem to be working along the same lines as Next Thing, with a couple of CHIP-compatible boards in...

    Odroid-Go Advance

    If that's all she's after, this probably isn't the best option. My first suggestion would be the bittboy pocket-go. It's a lot smaller (more pocketable), slightly cheaper, and a little less janky. If she prefers the vertical form factor of the OG gameboy, the RG300 is pretty nice too.

    Miss the GCW Zero? The RetroGame RG350 is the modern equivalent

    You can get it in non-limited, plastic form as well. Here's a comparison of the plastic GK350H, the RG350, and the PlayGo.
