Retroscribe and RetroN 5: The Perfect Match
Retroscribe is a game rental service which caters to Retro Gamers. The RetroN 5 is Hyperkin's new multi-function game console that fans of retro gaming have eagerly purchased. These two could go together like Mario and Luigi and for anyone looking for a way to play more retro games, RetroScribe is the answer.
The Gamer’s Lounge has talked about how great the RetroN 5 is from the way it can play so many retro games to the potential options it has in the future. We have also speculated on the potential rising cost and interest in retro games. This may make it difficult for some gamers to acquire retro games for a reasonable price. In some cases, gamers may live in an area where retro games are tough to find.
This is where a service like Retroscribe comes in handy. Currently, Retroscribe focuses on delivering NES/SNES/Genesis titles to gamer’s doorsteps. They offer four packages depending on how many games you want to play at one time. They are shipped quickly and come with a prepaid label to ship them back. They guarantee that gamers will always get something from their queue that is in the top 3. Gamers can also buy consoles and controllers from the site. The service works well and I cannot recommend it enough for gamers looking to play more of the retro titles they love so much.
I suggest one of the smaller priced packages to start with. If you find yourself playing more retro games or you have more time, go ahead and bump yourself up to something that gives you more options. Although the selection is small, it appears Retroscribe is growing and with this growth will come more games for more consoles. I wouldn't be surprised if they add Gameboy and PS1 games to the mix. Hopefully Master System and GameBoy Advance will be options in the future as well. For now, there are plenty of great 8 and 16 bit games from the NES/SNES/Genesis era available, which includes such games games as Breath of Fire, Mega Man 6, Phantasy Star II. These are the games most of us really want to replay since the cost of owning these in their original form have skyrocketed. Owing a RetroN 5 is great, but when you pair it with a service like Retroscribe things only get better. Check out Retroscribe here.
